RUTLAND, Vt., June 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CWST), a regional solid waste, recycling and resource management services company, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013, and gave guidance for its fiscal year 2014.

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Revenue growth of 2.2 percent over the same quarter last year.
  • Overall solid waste pricing growth of 0.7 percent was primarily driven by collection pricing growth of 1.5 percent as a percentage of collection revenues.

For the quarter ended April 30, 2013, revenues were $108.7 million, up $2.3 million, or 2.2 percent, from the same quarter last year, with revenue growth mainly driven by acquisition activity, higher recycling volumes, and higher solid waste collection pricing.

The company's net loss attributable to common stockholders was ($13.4) million, or ($0.34) per share for the quarter, compared to net loss of ($49.1) million, or ($1.83) per share for the same quarter last year.
