"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."
