ServiceMaster Delivers First-Quarter 2020 Revenue Growth of 9 Percent

05/07/2020
  • Organic revenue growth of one percent included:
    • three percent organic growth in commercial pest control
    • two percent organic growth in residential pest control
  • Pressure from COVID-19 in March impacted a strong start to the quarter in all business lines
  • ServiceMaster utilized its remaining share repurchase capacity
  • ServiceMaster ended the quarter with $185 million cash on hand and $556 million in total liquidity
  • ServiceMaster Brands, now reported in discontinued operations, delivered three percent revenue growth
  • ServiceMaster withdraws full-year guidance due to uncertainty from unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SERV), a leading provider of essential services to residential and commercial customers in the termite, pest control, cleaning and restoration markets, today announced unaudited first-quarter 2020 results.

For the first quarter of 2020, the Company reported a year-over-year continuing operations revenue increase of nine percent to $456 million and net income of $14 million, or $0.10 per share. Continuing operations Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter was $60 million with Adjusted net income(2) of $11 million, or $0.08 per share. Both Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income for continuing operations included $3 million of costs historically allocated to ServiceMaster Brands.

“I would first like to thank all the essential service workers across the world, including our more than 10,000 employees and our many franchisee associates, for their sacrifice and service during this unprecedented health crisis,” said ServiceMaster Chairman and interim CEO Naren Gursahaney. “Our top priority is protecting the health and safety of our employees and our customers, and we have rapidly adapted our service protocols to accomplish this. While our services have been deemed as essential, we did see an impact to revenue and profitability in the second half of March, primarily as a result of the effect of COVID-19 on our customers, and we anticipate this impact will continue into future periods. However, with a strong recurring revenue customer base, resilient cash generation dynamics, and significant access to liquidity, we believe we are well positioned to weather this crisis. We are taking aggressive actions to retain existing customers, reduce discretionary costs, preserve cash, and pursue new opportunities, such as the launch of disinfection services in Terminix to complement our existing disinfection and cleaning offerings in ServiceMaster Brands. While we take these steps to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we remain focused on our previously communicated 2020 strategic priorities and expect to emerge from this crisis even better positioned to drive future growth and profitability.”

Reconciliations of net income to Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of net cash provided from operating activities from continuing operations to free cash flow, are set forth below in this press release.

COVID-19 Mitigation Strategy

The Company has taken numerous strategic steps to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on its employees, customers and business operations. The actions can be summarized under four main objectives.

  • Protecting employees and customers - The Company has obtained and is continuing to provide all employees with appropriate personal protective equipment. Terminix has also moved to limit in-person interactions with customers, including suspending its summer sales program, limiting branch visits and moving to virtual back office support and customer service centers.
  • Ensuring business continuity - The Company is supporting the ongoing business by emphasizing exterior services when possible, improving customer communication procedures, and accelerating customer retention initiatives.
  • Driving cost and cash actions - The Company has taken approximately $45 million of actions designed to reduce costs and preserve cash during 2020, including delaying merit increases, rightsizing the back-office, eliminating or furloughing excess frontline employees, delaying discretionary capital and operating spending and vehicle leasing. In addition, our interim CEO has voluntarily elected to forego 25 percent of his salary for the remainder of his tenure as interim CEO and our Board of Directors have voluntarily elected to forego 25 percent of their cash retainers for the next two quarters.
  • Responding to opportunities - The Company is also aggressively pursuing new opportunities, including launching disinfection services at Terminix, completing our share repurchase program, and pursuing selective tuck-in acquisitions.

The Company will continue to closely monitor the situation and will take additional steps as necessary to respond to the changing environment.

Share Repurchase Program Completion

During the first quarter, the Company purchased 3,747,321 shares at an average price of $27.64 per share. The Company used $103 million of cash in the quarter, completing the $150 million authorization level under the program. The Company has no immediate plans to seek a new authorization as it takes actions to preserve cash and liquidity.

Liquidity and Free Cash Flow

The Company ended the first quarter with $185 million in available cash and access to $370 million under its existing revolving credit facility for total liquidity of $556 million. Free cash flow from continuing operations in the quarter was $45 million, with a free cash flow to Adjusted EBITDA conversion rate of 76 percent. Discontinued operations also contributed $10 million of cash in the quarter. We expect the strong liquidity position of the Company combined with strong Adjusted EBITDA margins, negative working capital and limited capital expenditures will enable the Company to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic in a position of strength for future growth and profitability.

Leverage and Debt Covenant Considerations

The Company has a covenant-lite debt structure and as such has no maintenance financial covenants in place unless its revolving credit facility is drawn by more than 30 percent, or $120 million. The Company currently has no cash drawn under the revolving credit facility. In the event more than 30 percent of the revolving credit facility is drawn, the applicable maintenance financial covenant is 4.0x net first lien debt to Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in the credit agreement, for the most recently completed four-quarter period. With the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations, the Company’s first lien net debt leverage ratio was approximately 1.3 times Adjusted EBITDA at quarter end.

Full-Year 2020 Outlook

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, there is uncertainty around its impact on the Company’s customers and on its operations, which will be shaped by such factors as the pandemic’s duration, the success of efforts to contain the virus and the impact of actions taken by governments in response. As a result, the Company's full year financial and operating results cannot be reasonably estimated at this time and the Company is withdrawing its previous 2020 full-year guidance.

First-Quarter Performance

Terminix

Terminix reported five percent year-over-year total revenue growth and one percent organic revenue growth in the first quarter of 2020, excluding the impact of its divested fumigation channel. Residential pest control organic revenue growth was two percent, reflecting four percent growth in the two months ended February 29, 2020, and a three percent decline in March as a result of COVID-19. The growth in January and February was driven by improved price realization, and residential pest control has benefited from an improvement in customer retention, despite the impact of COVID-19. Commercial pest control organic revenue growth was three percent, reflecting five percent growth in the two months ended February 29, 2020, and a one percent decline in March 2020 as a result of COVID-19. Commercial pest organic growth was driven by higher price realization, particularly in recurring services, offset, in part, by lower sales of non-recurring services and service postponements due to business closures in response to COVID-19, which are expected to continue into future periods. Termite revenue, including wildlife exclusion, crawl space encapsulation and attic insulation, which are managed as a component of the termite line of business, increased two percent in the two months ended February 29, 2020. This reflects strong retention rates, which were offset entirely by a four percent decline in March as a result of lower home services sales and, to a lesser extent, lower core termite completion new unit sales due to COVID-19.

Terminix Adjusted EBITDA was $63 million for the first quarter, a year-over-year decrease of $20 million. Higher organic revenue contributed $2 million while higher revenue from inorganic growth contributed $1 million. Terminix had year-over-year cost increases of $6 million for termite damage claims, primarily in the Mobile Bay area, $3 million in technician labor driven by labor inefficiencies due to lower work order volume related to COVID-19 pressure, $4 million in chemical and material costs partially related to increased costs to obtain proper COVID-19 related personal protective equipment for our technicians. Additional cost increases included $2 million in sales and marketing, $3 million of investments in growth, primarily related to our investment in a new customer experience platform, and $2 million from the outsourcing of fumigation services.

European Pest Control and Other

European Pest Control and Other includes pest control operations in Europe and the Company’s captive insurance subsidiary. Nomor Holdings AB, operating in Sweden and Norway, and Terminix UK reported $18 million in revenue in the first quarter. Nomor contributed $2 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter, which was partially offset by expenses incurred at Terminix UK as part of our efforts to separate it from its former owner’s operations and systems.

The quarter was also unfavorably impacted by a $2 million adjustment in our automobile, general liability and workers’ compensation program. Although our captive insurance claims resulted in a $2 million negative impact to Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter, we have seen significant favorability over the last two years and continue to make progress on improving safety across the organization.

Costs Historically Allocated to ServiceMaster Brands

The Company has historically incurred the cost of certain corporate-level activities which were performed on behalf of its businesses, including ServiceMaster Brands, such as executive functions, communications, public relations, finance and accounting, tax, treasury, internal audit, human resources operations and benefits, risk management and insurance, supply management, real estate management, legal, facilities, information technology and other general corporate support services. The costs of such activities were historically allocated to the segments, including ServiceMaster Brands. Certain corporate expenses that were historically allocated to the ServiceMaster Brands segment are not permitted to be classified as discontinued operations under GAAP (“Historically Allocated Services”). Such Historically Allocated Services amounted to $3 million in both the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Discontinued Operations – ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group

The ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group includes the operations of the ServiceMaster Brands business, as well as the results from the financing subsidiary previously reported in European Pest Control and Other. The Historically Allocated Services of $3 million in both the three months ended March 31, 2020, and 2019, are excluded from the ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group.

The ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group reported $65 million in revenue, an increase of 3% over the prior year. Revenue growth in national accounts and owned branch operations more than exceeded revenue declines in royalty fees in the period. A decline in area-wide events year-over-year in ServiceMaster Restore and the late March COVID-19 related shutdown of Merry Maids locations drove lower royalty revenue.

The ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group reported Adjusted EBITDA of $23 million as a result of a decrease in high margin royalty revenue and an increase in lower margin national accounts and owned branch operations.

ServiceMaster Brands has experienced increased demand for disinfection services that will partially offset an increase in customer postponements in commercial cleaning and the closure of several Merry Maids locations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP measures may not be calculated like or comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. See non-GAAP reconciliations below in this press release for a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, Adjusted earnings per share, free cash flow and ServiceMaster Brands Divestiture Group Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of the Company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations, net earnings from discontinued operations or any other performance or liquidity measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate operating performance and liquidity comparisons, as applicable, from period to period. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful for investors, analysts and other interested parties as they facilitate company-to-company operating performance and liquidity comparisons, as applicable, by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures, taxation, the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment, restructuring initiatives and equity-based, long-term incentive plans.
