Estre Ambiental, Inc. Reports 2018 First Half-Year Results

Revenue Grows 6 Percent to R$709 Million

SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Oct. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Estre Ambiental, Inc. (NASDAQ: ESTR) (“Estre” or “Company”), one of the leading waste management companies in Latin America, today announced financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The results are stated in Brazilian Reais (“R$”) and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, except as otherwise indicated.

1H2018 Results Highlights

  • Net revenues in the 1H18 increased 5.6%, from R$671 million in 1H17 to R$709 million in 1H18. Strong growth from Commercial and Industrial clients (+39.3%) and Value Recovery (+17.6%) together with the impact of the consolidation of 100% of Soma’s results drove this increase as well as the commencement of operations of new small-sized municipal contracts delayed from the second half of 2017, with a positive impact on our Public Collection and Cleaning Services (+7.5%). These factors, combined with resilient Landfill operations (+1.4%), more than compensated for the change in the Oil and Gas (-33.2%) segment.
     
  • Net Income in the first half of 2018 was a loss of R$120 million compared to a profit of R$105 million in the same period of last year. This decrease was attributable to several isolated events occurring in both periods, associated primarily with our participation in the tax-refinancing program offered by the Brazilian Federal Government in 2017. Adjusted Net Income from continuous operations improved from a loss of R$15 million in 1H17 to a loss of R$3 million in 1H18.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA before allowances for doubtful accounts increased 2.7% to R$184 million in 1H18 vs. R$179 million in 1H17 with a margin of 25.7% in 1H18 vs. 26.6% in 1H17. This reflects, among other factors, increased competition in bidding for new contracts as well as higher corporate costs to operate as a public company.

Selected Operating and Financial Highlights

Non-recurring events, including, among other factors, our participation in a tax-refinancing program offered by the Brazilian Federal Government for a limited period in 2017 and the findings and expenses associated with our internal evaluation process have affected our 1H17 and 1H18 results in several ways. In addition to these non-recurring events, our 1H18 results were impacted by the implementation of IFRS 9 and IFRS 15.

In order to not distort comparability between periods and to show additional meaningful information to investors to demonstrate the operating performance of our core business, we present certain non-IFRS measures to eliminate the effects of these events that our management considers to be isolated in nature.

Table A annexed to this earnings release provides detailed information describing the impact of these events that our management considers to be non-recurring and reconciles these non-IFRS metrics to our IFRS numbers for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2018, respectively. Whenever we mention a measure as “Adjusted”, we will be referring to the numbers indicated in Table A annexed hereto.  

All percentages shown in this earnings release have been calculated using the numbers in thousands of R$ as they are reported in the Company’s financial statements.

“Our business performance remained solid with 5.6% revenues growth” Estre Chief Executive Officer Sergio Pedreiro noted. “Despite certain head winds we were able to improve our Adjusted EBITDA (excluding the effects of doubtful accounts) year over year by 2.7%.”

“I believe Estre continues to be well positioned to succeed as a leading full-service company in the waste management industry in Brazil,” Pedreiro said. “It is our commitment to execute against that opportunity and leverage our leadership position more aggressively.  There is a long runway of underserved demand, and we are uniquely positioned to service that demand through our culture of compliance, our full-service offerings and history of operational excellence.”

(1) Considers elimination of intersegment transactions entered into in the ordinary course of business, R$46 million in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and R$54 million in the six months ended June 30, 2018.
 

Revenues in 1H18 were R$709 million, a 5.6% increase in comparison with net revenues of R$671 million in 1H17.

Growth from Collection & Cleaning Services was R$45 million mainly as a result of inflation-driven price increases, the consolidation of 100% of  Soma’s results, revenues from our new transfer station GLA - Gestão Logistica Ambiental S.A., new contracts and increased momentum from our C&I business.

Revenue from our Landfills segment increased R$3 million or 1.4%, reflecting inflation-driven price adjustments coupled with the 100% consolidation of our Catanduva landfill since June 2017, partially offset by volume losses at our Itapevi landfill, where we limited current volume while we invested to increase future capacity, as well as at our Tremembé and Feira de Santana landfills.

Revenue from Oil and Gas services segment decreased by R$7 million or 33.2% due to a corresponding decrease in the volume of services rendered to our main customer (Petrobras), reflecting in part the impact of the economic and political environment on its operations.

Value Recovery revenues segment increased by R$4 million or 17.6% primarily due to the continued growth of our bio gas power generation business with the implementation of 3 more power units at our Curitiba plant in September 2017.

Operating Costs

Cost of services increased 3.5%, from R$478.2 million in 1H17 to R$495.0 million in 1H18, mainly due to R$19.2 million in wage increases, pursuant to annual renegotiation of collective bargaining agreements with our employees, as well as a R$10.7 million increase in leachate treatment costs, and a R$4.5 million increase in fuel costs, mainly driven by the Brazilian truck drivers’ strike in May 2018. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in depreciation, amortization and depletion costs with the closing of one cell at our Paulina landfill.

Excluding certain non-recurring costs presented in Table A annexed hereto, including costs related to our internal evaluation process and depreciation and amortization charges, Adjusted Operating Costs increased 8.8%, from R$408 million in 1H17 to R$443 million in 1H18.

Adjusted Gross Margin, which we calculate as Net Revenues minus Adjusted Operating Costs divided by Net Revenues, in 1H18 dropped 1.5-percentage point, from 39.3% to 37.8%.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses increased by 10.2%, from R$148.8 million in 1H17 to R$163.9 million in 1H18, mainly driven by an increase in expenses reflecting the implementation of IFRS 9 and its impact on our calculation of doubtful accounts. Allowances for doubtful accounts changed from a net positive impact of R$8.7 million in the first half of 2017 to an expense of R$7.5 million in the first half of 2018, contributing R$16 million of the total variation reported under operating expenses. The positive impact we recorded in 1H17 upon reversal of provisions for overdue municipal accounts would no longer be possible under IFRS 9.

Also contributing to the increase in operating expense was a R$30.5 million in advisory and legal services related to the advisors hired in connection with conducting our internal evaluation process, as well as additional expenses associated with the transition to a public company.

These increases were partially offset by a decrease in General and Administrative expenses, reflecting greater provisioning in 1H17 compared to 1H18 due to our participation in the Brazilian Tax Regularization Program.

Excluding non-recurring events detailed in Table A annexed hereto and the effects of depreciation and amortization charges, Adjusted Operating Expenses increased 22.9%, from R$76 million in the first half of 2017 to R$94 million in the first half of 2018. 

Adjusted EBITDA and Net Result

For those reasons identified above, our Net Result in 1H18 was a loss of R$120 million compared to a profit of R$105 million in 1H17.  

The Adjusted Net Result from Continuous Operations improved from a loss of R$15 million in 1H17 to a loss of R$3 million in 1H18, reflecting the negative contribution of a R$12 million decrease in operating profit and R$30 million in higher income tax expenses, offset by a R$53 million in lower net interest expenses.

We have excluded allowance for doubtful accounts in calculating Adjusted EBITDA for both periods to enhance comparability following the implementation of IFRS 9. Adjusted EBITDA before allowance for doubtful accounts increased 2.7% to R$183.5 million in the first half of 2018, primarily from revenue growth. Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which we calculate as Adjusted EBITDA before allowance for doubtful accounts divided by Net Revenues, was 25.7% in the first half of 2018, down from 26.6% in 1H17, as Cost of Services have grown faster than revenues.

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Capital Allocation

Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2018, were R$28 million, practically unchanged from the R$30 million at June 30, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA before allowance for doubtful accounts less capital expenditures for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was R$134 million compared to R$148 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 primarily reflecting lower capital investments in the first half of 2017.

The Company is committed to continue to lower its leverage, primarily through internal cash flow generation, with a long-term goal of achieving a Net Debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 2x or lower, deploying capital efficiently for growth while preserving financial flexibility.

Tax Expense

In May 2017, Estre entered into the Brazilian Tax Regularization Program (known as PRT), a tax amnesty plan offered by the federal government, which allowed, for a limit period, Brazilian companies to settle existing tax debts. The program allowed the partial settlement of tax debts with the use of tax credits and/or the use of tax loss carry forwards, as well as the payment of the remaining balance in installments.

Towards the end of the first half of 2018, the Brazilian Federal Revenue Service announced the second and final round of the PRT program. In this phase, companies were asked to confirm, in detail, for each of their subsidiaries the tax debts they want to include in the program, how they want to pay such debts and how much (if any) credit from tax loss carry forward they are able, and want, to use.

We took this opportunity offered by the second phase of the PRT program to include some additional anticipated tax debts in the amount of R$40 million that we identified in the context of the internal evaluation process. This choice and other impacts associated with our expanded participation in the PRT program resulted in an increase of R$131 million in tax debt to be paid in up to nine years. This increase was partially offset by a R$76 million reduction in tax provision as well as an increase of R$88 million in Tax Loss Carry Forward. This TLCF was not recorded in our balance sheet as a deferred tax asset.

The total tax debt associated with tax amnesty programs increased from R$418 million as of December 31, 2017 to R$518 million as of June 30, 2018, due to the R$131 million in additional amounts included, as explained above, plus R$17 million in accrued interest less R$47 million paid throughout the first half of 2018.

Internal Evaluation Process

Following the receipt of tax infringement notices at the conclusion of 2017, we conducted an internal evaluation process at the direction of management and the board of directors. The specific purpose of this process was to evaluate the integrity of our supply relationships and related matters across our organization, including at Soma and our other joint ventures. In accordance with our zero tolerance policy, corrective actions were taken immediately, mainly a significant change in our organization structure at Soma. Based on the findings of this internal evaluation process, we restated our audited financial statements for the first half of 2017 to reflect necessary adjustments.

São Paulo Urban Cleaning Contract

As previously disclosed to the market, we have been providing urban cleaning services to the city of São Paulo, through the joint venture Soma, since 2011. On June 12, 2018, our provisional contract with São Paulo for urban cleaning services introduced certain material changes to the contractual terms, including the area serviced and price. As a result of these changes, our monthly revenues from the Soma contract were reduced by 37% as of such date.

Our current provisional contract with São Paulo is set to expire in December 2018 and a new auction for the São Paulo contract has been scheduled for October 18, 2018, although delays are possible.

2018 Full-Year Outlook

We anticipate that revenues for the full year will be flat, with Adjusted EBITDA margins in the mid-20% range. Results will reflect the full-year benefit of new municipal collection contracts that came on-line in the second-half of 2017, the full-year effect of public company expenses and the impacts of the Soma contract in the 2H18. 

Estre is aggressively pursuing the renewal or temporary extension by year-end of public collection contracts, including Sao Paulo and Curitiba, among others. As in the first half, the Company expects modest growth for the full year from its commercial and industrial, landfills and biogas businesses, somewhat offset by weaker sales in oil and gas.

We remain confident that Estre is well positioned to succeed as the leading full-service company in the waste management industry in Brazil.  Strategically, we consider the most attractive value creation opportunities will result from leveraging our leading position and competitive advantages by merging with other players and consolidating a highly fragmented industry.  There is a long runway of underserved demand, and we believe we are uniquely positioned to service that demand through our culture of compliance, our full-service offerings and our history of operational excellence.
