WASTE CONNECTIONS, INC. : Regulation FD Disclosure (form 8-K)

05/04/2022 | 08:59am EDT

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

During our earnings conference call on May 4, 2022, we highlighted the following outlook for the second quarter 2022.

(Dollar amounts are approximations)

For the second quarter of the year, we estimate our revenue to be approximately $1.785 billion. We expect solid waste price plus volume growth to be 7.5% to 8.5%. We expect pricing growth to increase sequentially to a range of 8.0% to 8.5%, on reported volumes of flat to down 0.5%. Net income attributable to Waste Connections is estimated to be approximately $216.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA, as reconciled below, is estimated to be approximately $557 million.

                                Q2 2022 OUTLOOK

                        NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION SCHEDULE

                                   Estimates                          Observation
Net income attributable
to Waste Connections     $  216,250
Plus: Income tax                                                  Approximately 22.5%
provision                    62,750                                 effective rate
Plus: Interest expense,

depletion                   191,500                                     revenue
Plus: Amortization           37,500                              Approximately 2.1% of
                                                                 revenue, or $0.11 per
                                                              diluted share net of taxes

post-closure accretion        4,000
                                                                Approximately 31.2% of
Adjusted EBITDA          $  557,000                                     revenue

These estimates assume no significant change in underlying economic trends.

They also exclude any impact from additional acquisitions that may close during the remainder of the year, and expensing of transaction-related items during the period.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is provided supplementally because it is widely used by investors as a performance and valuation measure in the solid waste industry. Management uses adjusted EBITDA as one of the principal measures to evaluate and monitor the ongoing financial performance of our operations. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to Waste Connections, plus or minus net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, plus income tax provision, plus interest expense, less interest income, plus depreciation and amortization expense, plus closure and post-closure accretion expense, plus or minus any loss or gain on impairments and other operating items, plus other expense, less other income. We further adjust this calculation to exclude the effects of other items management believes impact the ability to assess the operating performance of our business.

This measure is not a substitute for, and should be used in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Other companies may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently.

The information furnished in Item 7.01 is not deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is not subject to the liabilities of that section, and is not deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
