Stocks in this article: CLH

Clean Harbors, Inc. (“Clean Harbors”) (NYSE: CLH), the leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services throughout North America, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Results for 2013 reflect the December 2012 acquisition of Safety-Kleen. Revenues for the third quarter of 2013 increased 70% to $907.5 million, compared with $533.8 million in the same period in 2012. Income from operations in the third quarter of 2013 increased 30% to $73.6 million from $56.7 million in the same period of 2012, which includes a 68% increase in depreciation and amortization expense.

Third-quarter 2013 net income was $35.4 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared with $12.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. The Company’s third-quarter 2013 net income includes approximately $2.7 million in pre-tax integration and severance costs. The third quarter of 2012 included a $26.4 million pre-tax charge related to senior debt refinancing. The effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2013 was 34.7%, compared with 33.8% in the same period of last year.

Adjusted EBITDA (see description below) in the third quarter of 2013 increased 45% to $146.0 million, compared with $100.5 million in the same period of 2012. Third-quarter 2013 Adjusted EBITDA includes the $2.7 million in pre-tax integration and severance costs.

Comments on the Third Quarter

“In the third quarter, we exceeded $900 million in quarterly revenue for the first time in our history,” said Alan S. McKim, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The 70% year-over-year growth was not only driven by the addition of Safety-Kleen but by a solid performance in our legacy business. Our Technical Services and Industrial and Field Services segments each achieved double-digit growth compared with a year ago. At the same time, our Oil and Gas Field Services segment had a strong quarter, growing 27% over the same period in 2012. Within Safety-Kleen, our Oil Re-refining and Recycling segment rebounded from a soft second quarter with higher total volume of base oil and blended oil sales, improved pricing and increased sales of byproducts.”
