"Today we are reporting the highest quarterly revenue and adjusted EBITDA results in BrightView's history. Our Maintenance Services Segment increased its base contract revenue, demonstrating that we are pursuing the right strategy to build a strong foundation for sustainable, future organic growth. Our Development Services Segment capitalized on a robust book of business to deliver meaningful growth in both revenue and profitability, despite the challenging wet weather conditions faced by both segments throughout the quarter and across much of the country," said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President and Chief Executive Officer. "Moving forward, we will continue to invest in generating profitable, long-term growth. Results in our existing business are starting to show the benefits of our reorganized sales team and the initiatives we've implemented to "digitize" the Company by leveraging technology. Finally, our M&A pipeline remains attractive as we continue driving growth through our strong-on-strong acquisition strategy."

For the third quarter fiscal 2019, total revenue increased 4.3% to $657.2 million due to increases in both the Maintenance Services Segment and Development Services Segment revenues. Total Adjusted EBITDA increased 4.2% driven by an increase in the Development Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA, and included relatively flat Maintenance Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA, as discussed further below, partially offset by higher corporate expenses.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, total revenue increased 0.5% to $1,779.9 million due to an increase in Maintenance Services Segment revenue, partially offset by a decline in Development Services Segment revenue. Total Adjusted EBITDA was $213.1 million, down 1.3% versus the prior year, driven by a decrease in Maintenance Services Segment together with relatively flat Development Services Segment Adjusted EBITDA, partially offset by lower corporate expenses.

For the third quarter fiscal 2019, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment increased 3.7% to $492.1 million. Landscape Maintenance revenue increased 4.4%. Acquisitions added 5.3% but were partially offset by a 0.9% negative revenue contribution from commercial landscaping, including lower revenue due to Managed Exits as the Company strategically reduced a number of less profitable accounts established in previous years. Excluding Managed Exits, the Company's commercial landscaping revenue grew 1.0% versus the prior-year quarter with contract growth more than offsetting softness in ancillary services revenue related to weather. Snow removal revenue, which included a small contribution from acquired companies, decreased 36.6% versus the unusually high level of snowfall in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment in the quarter remained relatively flat at $91.1 million, with the Adjusted EBITDA margin decreasing 70 basis points versus the prior year quarter. The decrease in segment profitability was due to unfavorable weather conditions resulting in lower margins on ancillary services and decreased efficiencies in core commercial landscaping services, coupled with an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as a result of the absorption of acquired businesses, partially offset by the increase in revenue described above.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, revenue in the Maintenance Services Segment increased 1.2% to $1,358.0 million. Landscape Maintenance revenue increased 2.2%. Acquisitions added 6.4% but were mostly offset by a 4.2% negative revenue contribution from commercial landscaping, including a difficult comparison with the revenue related to Hurricane Irma and Maria clean-up, and lower revenue due to Managed Exits as the Company strategically reduced the number of less profitable accounts established in previous years. Snow removal revenue decreased 2.9% due to lower year-over-year snowfall in key geographies, especially during the first and third quarters of fiscal 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Maintenance Services Segment for the nine months ended June 30, 2019 decreased 2.6% to $204.8 million, with the Adjusted EBITDA margin decreasing 60 basis points versus the prior year period. The decline in segment profitability was mainly a result of the comparison with higher-margin hurricane clean-up activity in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 and unfavorable weather conditions resulting in lower margins on snow removal services during the first quarter compared to the prior year quarter as well as on both ancillary and core commercial landscaping services during the third quarter compared to the prior year quarter.

Revenues for the Development Services Segment increased 5.7% to $166.3 million for the third quarter fiscal 2019. Project revenue derived from the segment's strong project pipeline coupled with revenue from acquisitions more than offset a challenging comparison with the timing of work performed on certain large projects during the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Development Services Segment increased 22.8% to $27.0 million in the quarter, positively affected by the increase in net revenue described above, as well as a decrease in cost of services provided as the result of lower material costs as a percentage of revenue.

Revenues for the Development Services Segment decreased 2.1% to $424.7 million for the nine months ended June 30, 2019. Project revenue derived from acquisitions partially offset a challenging comparison with revenues generated from work performed on certain large projects in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the Development Services Segment decreased 0.5% to $55.0 million during the nine months ended June 30, 2019, negatively affected by the decrease in net revenue described above, as well as an increase in selling, general and administrative expense. These changes were substantially offset by a decrease in cost of services provided as the result of lower material costs and decreased use of subcontractors.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2019 was $109.2 million, compared to $123.7 million for the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to an increase in accounts receivable due to timing of collections coupled with a decrease in deferred revenue, partially offset by a decrease in prepaid income taxes. Adjusted Free Cash Flow for the nine months ended June 30, 2019 was $38.8 million, a decrease in cash generation of $38.7 million versus the prior year. The decrease is reflective of the decrease in net cash provided by operating activities of $14.5 million as well as an increase in capital expenditures of $27.1 million (exclusive of the fiscal 2018 purchase of legacy ValleyCrest facilities of $21.6 million).

For the nine months ended June 30, 2019, capital expenditures were $77.2 million, compared with $71.7 million last year. The prior year period included the aforementioned purchase of legacy ValleyCrest facilities. The Company also generated proceeds from the sale of property and equipment of $6.8 million and $3.9 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 and 2018, respectively. Net of the legacy asset purchase and the proceeds from the sale of property and equipment in each year, net capital expenditures represented 4.0% and 2.6% of revenue in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and aid understanding of the Company's business performance, the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, namely "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted EBITDA Margin", "Adjusted Net Income" "Adjusted Earnings per Share", "Adjusted Free Cash Flow", Total Financial Debt" and "Total Net Financial Debt". We believe Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt assist investors and in comparing our results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in highlighting trends in our operating performance, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which we operate and capital investments. Management regularly uses these measures as tools in evaluating our operating performance, financial performance and liquidity. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt to supplement comparable GAAP measures in the evaluation of the effectiveness of our business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, to establish discretionary annual incentive compensation and to compare our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. In addition, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt are frequently used by investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of issuers, many of which also present Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt and Total Net Financial Debt when reporting their results in an effort to facilitate an understanding of their operating and financial results and liquidity. Management supplements GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone.

Adjusted EBITDA: We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude certain non-cash, non-recurring and other adjustment items.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin: We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA, defined above, divided by Net Service Revenues.

Adjusted Net Income: We define Adjusted Net Income as net income (loss) including interest and depreciation, and excluding other items used to calculate Adjusted EBITDA and further adjusted for the tax effect of these exclusions and the removal of the discrete tax items.

Adjusted Earnings per Share: We define Adjusted Earnings per Share as Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow: We define Adjusted Free Cash Flow as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from the sale of property and equipment, further adjusted for the acquisition of certain legacy properties associated with our acquired ValleyCrest business.

Total Financial Debt: We define Total Financial Debt as total long-term debt, net of original issue discount, and capital lease obligations.

Total Net Financial Debt: We define Total Net Financial Debt as Total Financial Debt minus total cash and cash equivalents.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings per Share, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Total Financial Debt, and Total Net Financial Debt are not recognized terms under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or the ratio of net income (loss) to net revenue as a measure of financial performance, cash flows provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these measures are not intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. The presentations of these measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company.

Represents fees paid pursuant to a monitoring agreement terminated on July 2, 2018 in connection with the completion of the IPO.

(f)

Represents the tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from Adjusted Net Income and the removal of the applicable discrete tax items, which collectively result in a reduction of income tax.

Discrete tax items include changes in laws or rates, changes in uncertain tax positions relating to prior years and changes in valuation allowances. The nine months ended June 30, 2018 amount includes a $41.4 million benefit recognized as a result of the reduction in the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% under the Tax Act.
