Brian Lane, Comfort Systems USA’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased to report third quarter results marked by continued growth in earnings and cash flow. Our margin improvement resulted from solid field execution, an increase in the proportion of our revenues derived from service work, and continued stabilization in pricing.”

The Company reported net income attributable to Comfort Systems USA for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 of $21,673,000 or $0.58 per diluted share as compared to $9,112,000 or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2012. The Company also reported revenue of $1,026,932,000 as compared to $1,015,315,000 for the same period of 2012. Free cash flow for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $11,877,000 as compared to negative free cash flow of $5,006,000 in the first nine months of 2012.

Mr. Lane continued, “During 2013 we have benefitted from a more balanced supply and demand environment as activity levels remained consistent and backlog declined somewhat. We attribute the decline in backlog to the changing nature of our project work as we get more of our project revenue from work in existing buildings, and we have experienced a shift from institutional work towards industrial work.”
