ELGIN, IL, October 20, 2021 - Heritage-Crystal Clean, Inc. (Nasdaq: HCCI), a leading provider of parts cleaning, used oil re-refining, and hazardous and non-hazardous waste services primarily focused on small and mid-sized customers, today announced results for the third quarter which ended September 11, 2021.

Third Quarter Review

Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $123.2 million compared to $87.1 million for the same quarter of 2020, an increase of 41.4%.

Overall Operating Margin jumped to 31.7%, driven primarily by the Oil Business segment, compared to 2020 third quarter operating margin which was 17.8%. Our third quarter corporate SG&A expense was $13.3 million, or 10.8% of revenue, compared to $9.4 million, or 10.8% of revenue, for the third quarter of 2020.

Net income for the third quarter was $18.5 million compared to net income of $4.0 million in the year-ago quarter. Basic earnings per share was $0.79 compared $0.17 in the year-ago quarter.

President and CEO Brian Recatto commented, "We are very excited with our overall results for the third quarter. We are also pleased that both segments again made positive contributions to help achieve record-setting results for the fourth straight quarter."

Segments

Our Environmental Services segment includes parts cleaning, containerized waste, wastewater vacuum, antifreeze recycling, and field services. Environmental Services revenue was $72.3 million during the quarter compared to

$62.4 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2020. The 15.9% increase in revenue was mainly due to our continuing recovery from the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. We experienced volume increases across all service lines in the segment when compared to the third quarter of 2020. Environmental Services profit before corporate selling, general, and administrative expenses was $17.3 million, or 23.9% of revenue, compared to $14.6 million, or 23.4% of revenue, in the year-ago quarter. The slight increase in operating margin was mainly driven by higher labor cost efficiency and lower solvent expense.

Recatto commented, "We are pleased that we were not only able to grow our segment revenue compared to 2020, but during the quarter we also exceeded segment revenue compared to the third quarter of 2019 by 4.9%. Cost inflation limited our operating profit during the quarter, but we expect that implementation of our price increase early in the fourth quarter will help mitigate the impact of continuing cost pressure during the fourth quarter of 2021."

Our Oil Business segment includes used oil collection and re-refining activities, as well as sales of recycled fuel oil. During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, Oil Business revenue was a record $50.8 million, an increase of $26.1 million, or 105.9%, compared to $24.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. An increase in base oil prices was the main driver of the increase in revenue along with an increase in base oil sales volume compared to the prior year quarter. Oil Business segment operating margin increased sharply to a record 42.8% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 3.4% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. The higher operating margin compared to the third quarter of 2020 was mainly due to an increase in the spread between the netback (sales price net of freight impact) on our base oil sales and the price paid/charged to our customers for the removal of their used oil.

Recatto commented, "During the third quarter we continued to benefit from favorable base oil pricing conditions and we executed well in regards to used oil collection route efficiency. In addition, we produced record base oil volume at our re-refinery during the third quarter which contributed to the record operating profit in our Oil Business segment."
