    Press Release Source: Casella Waste Systems, Inc. On Monday August 29, 2011, 4:20 pm EDT

    RUTLAND, VT–(Marketwire -08/29/11)- Casella Waste Systems, Inc.   (NASDAQ: CWSTNews), a regional solid waste, recycling and resource management services company, today reported financial results for its first quarter fiscal year 2012, and reaffirmed guidance for its 2012 fiscal year.

    Highlights for the quarter included:

    • Revenue growth of 4.3 percent in quarter was driven mainly by higher solid waste pricing and higher recycling commodity prices.   
    • Overall solid waste pricing growth of 1.5 percent was primarily driven by strong collection pricing of 2.4 percent as a percentage of collection revenues.   
    • Adjusted EBITDA* was $ 28.7 million for the quarter, up $ 0.9 million from same quarter last year.
    • Company remains on target to achieve Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and Free Cash Flow* guidance ranges for fiscal year 2012.

    For the quarter ended July 31, 2011, revenues were $ 127.2 million, up $ 5.2 million or 4.3 percent from the same quarter last year.   Operating income was $ 10.3 million for the quarter, down $ 2.4 million from the same quarter last year.   Excluding the non-recurring $ 1.0 million legal settlement charge in the current quarter and the $ 3.5 million gain on the sale of assets in the previous quarter, operating income was up $ 2.1 million or 22.8 percent from the same quarter last year.

    The company’s net loss available to common shareholders was ($ 3.1) million, or ($ 0.12) per common share for the quarter, compared to a net loss of ($ 2.9) million, or ($ 0.11) per share for the same quarter last year.   Adjusted EBITDA was $ 28.7 million for the quarter, up $ 0.9 million from the same quarter last year.

    “While much effort was devoted during the last year to divesting the non-core assets and refinancing the balance sheet, we also undertook the challenge of improving how we do business on a daily basis,” said John W.   Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste Systems.   “Two of the most important aspects of this initiative were our efforts to improve our profitability and to break down the internal cultural barriers to pricing and adjusting it when appropriate.”

    “We have made excellent progress, and our improved collection pricing during the first quarter clearly demonstrates that these efforts are paying off,” Casella said.   “We have worked to move pricing from an annual event to a core process of our divisional management teams.   Our teams are now effectively using our customer profitability tool to better understand the profitability of each individual customer, and more importantly, to intelligently manage yield in their markets.   As a result, changes in collection pricing improved from slightly negative in January to positive 2.8 percent in July.”

    Fiscal 2012 Outlook

    The company confirmed its fiscal year guidance in the following categories:

    • Revenues between $ 475.0 million and $ 487.0 million.   
    • Adjusted EBITDA* between $ 105.0 million and $ 110.0 million.   
    • Free Cash Flow* between $ 2.0 million and $ 7.0 million.   

    *Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the company also discloses earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for accretion, depletion of landfill operating lease obligations, gain on sale of assets, as well as legal settlement charge (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a non-GAAP measure.   The company also discloses Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures, less payments on landfill operating leases, less assets acquired through financing leases, plus proceeds from the sales of assets and property and equipment, which is a non-GAAP measure.   Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to net income (loss), while Free Cash Flow is reconciled to Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities.

    The company presents Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow because it considers them important supplemental measures of its performance and believes they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of our results.   Management uses these non-GAAP measures to further understand our “core operating performance.” The company believes its “core operating performance” represents its on-going performance in the ordinary course of operations.   The company believes that providing Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow to investors, in addition to corresponding income statement and cash flow statement measures, provides investors with the benefit of viewing its performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and understanding how the core business and its results of operations may look in the future.   The company further believes that providing this information allows its investors greater transparency and a better understanding of its core financial performance.   In addition, the instruments governing the company’s indebtedness use EBITDA (with additional adjustments) to measure its compliance with covenants such as interest coverage, leverage and debt incurrence.

    Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP in the U.S.   Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP in the U.S., and may be different from Adjusted EBITDA or Free Cash Flow presented by other companies.

                NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
                                   (In thousands)
    
    Note 1: Discontinued Operations
    On January 23, 2011, we entered into a purchase and sale agreement and
    related agreements to sell non-integrated recycling assets and select
    intellectual property assets to a new company formed by Pegasus Capital
    Advisors, L.P.   and Intersection LLC (the "Purchaser") for $  130,400 in gross
    proceeds.   Pursuant to these agreements, we divested non-integrated recycling
    assets located outside our core operating region of New York, Massachusetts,
    Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and northern Pennsylvania, including 17 MRFs,
    one transfer station and certain related intellectual property assets.
    Following the transaction, we retained four integrated MRFs located in our
    core operating regions.   As a part of the disposition, we also entered into a
    ten year commodities marketing agreement with the Purchaser to market 100%
    of the tonnage from three of our remaining integrated MRFs.
    
    We completed the transaction on March 1, 2011 for $  134,195 in gross cash
    proceeds.   This included an estimated $  3,795 working capital and other
    purchase price adjustment, which was subject to further adjustment, as
    defined in the purchase and sale agreement.   The final working capital
    adjustment, along with additional legal expenses related to the transaction,
    of $  646 (net of tax) was recorded to gain (loss) on disposal of discontinued
    operations in the quarter ended July 31, 2011.
    
    During the third quarter of fiscal year 2011, we also completed the sale of
    the assets of the Trilogy Glass business for cash proceeds of $  1,840.   This
    operation has been treated as a discontinued operation.
    
    The operating results of these operations, including those related to prior
    years, have been reclassified from continuing to discontinued operations in
    the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.   Revenues and
    loss before income tax provision attributable to discontinued operations for
    the three months ended July 31, 2011 and 2010 were $  0, $  17,849, $  0 and
    ($  925), respectively.
    
    We allocate interest expense to discontinued operations.   We have also
    eliminated certain immaterial inter-company activity associated with
    discontinued operations.
    
    Note 2: Non - GAAP Financial Measures
    In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with
    Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), we also disclose earnings
    before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for
    accretion, depletion of landfill operating lease obligations, gain on sale
    of assets, as well as a legal settlement charge (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a
    non-GAAP measure.   We also disclose Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net
    cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures, less
    payments on landfill operating leases, less assets acquired through
    financing leases, plus proceeds from the sales of assets and property and
    equipment, which is a non-GAAP measure.   Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to net
    income (loss), while Free Cash Flow is reconciled to Net Cash Provided by
    Operating Activities.
    
    We present Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow because we consider them
    important supplemental measures of our performance and believe they are
    frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested
    parties in the evaluation of our results.   Management uses these non-GAAP
    measures to further understand our "core operating performance." We believe
    our "core operating performance" represents our on-going performance in the
    ordinary course of operations.   We believe that providing Adjusted EBITDA and
    Free Cash Flow to investors, in addition to corresponding income statement
    and cash flow statement measures, provides investors the benefit of viewing
    our performance using the same financial metrics that the management team
    uses in making many key decisions and understanding how the core business
    and its results of operations may look in the future.   We further believe
    that providing this information allows our investors greater transparency
    and a better understanding of our core financial performance.   In addition,
    the instruments governing our indebtedness use EBITDA (with additional
    adjustments) to measure our compliance with covenants such as interest
    coverage, leverage and debt incurrence.
    
    Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative
    for, GAAP in the U.S.   Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow should not be
    considered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial information
    presented in accordance with GAAP in the U.S., and may be different from
    Adjusted EBITDA or Free Cash Flow presented by other companies.
    
    
    Following is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Net Loss:

    (1) Our capital expenditures are broadly defined as pertaining to either
     growth or maintenance activities.   Growth capital expenditures are defined
     as costs related to development of new airspace, permit expansions, and new
     recycling contracts along with incremental costs of equipment and
     infrastructure added to further such activities.   Growth capital
     expenditures include the cost of equipment added directly as a result of
     new business as well as expenditures associated with increasing
     infrastructure to increase throughput at transfer stations and recycling
     facilities.   Maintenance capital expenditures are defined as landfill cell
     construction costs not related to expansion airspace, costs for normal
     permit renewals, and replacement costs for equipment due to age or
     obsolescence.
