Russ Becker, APi’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated: "Our strong results for 2020 reinforce the focus and commitment of our entire organization to serving customers safely and efficiently in the middle of a challenging environment. I am proud of how our team has continued to demonstrate resiliency and perseverance. We believe that our focus on growing inspection and service revenue, strong balance sheet and variable cost structure combined with the tough decisions and sacrifices made across the organization in 2020 strengthened the business and allowed us to continue to execute on our long-term goals.

As we look ahead to the remainder of the year, we are cautiously optimistic about the opportunities in front of us. We entered the year with a strong backlog which is slightly higher than it was a year ago. End markets that we serve such as data centers, fulfillment and distribution centers, high-tech and healthcare have continued to show their resilience throughout the pandemic, similar to the resilience shown by our business. We remain focused on achieving our pre-COVID-19 objectives and long-term value creation targets."

APi Co-Chair James E. Lillie added: "2020 was a year of unique milestones from becoming a listed public company and proactively managing the business through the ongoing impact of COVID-19, to completing a number of acquisitions late in the year. APi’s execution against its goals despite the pandemic and its ability to deliver on its financial commitments speaks to the strength of the Company’s recurring revenue services-focused business model. Despite the challenges 2020 presented, the teams continued to focus on driving higher margin growth across all three segments. We demonstrated the Company’s ability to generate cash and ended the year with a strong balance sheet and plenty of capacity to absorb additional accretive acquisitions.

With the forward progress achieved in 2020, we remain confident in our previously stated long-term value creation targets, which are:

  1. Deliver long-term organic revenue growth above the industry average

  2. Continue to leverage our SG&A

  3. Expand adjusted EBITDA margins to 12%+ by FY 2023

  4. Maintain adjusted free cash flow conversion of 80%+

  5. Generate high single digit average earnings growth, and

  6. Target long-term net leverage ratio of 2.0 to 2.5x.

We are looking forward to our first analyst and investor day on Thursday, April 22, 2021. We plan to highlight our commitment to driving strong free cash flow and earnings, outline future growth and margin expansion opportunities in addition to providing expanded discussion about the company and certain key strategic initiatives including an update on the M&A environment."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-U.S. GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company uses certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that are included in this press release and the additional financial information both in explaining its results to shareholders and the investment community and in its internal evaluation and management of its businesses. The Company’s management believes that these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and the information they provide are useful to investors since these measures (a) permit investors to view the Company’s performance using the same tools that management uses to evaluate the Company’s past performance, reportable business segments and prospects for future performance, (b) permit investors to compare the Company with its peers and (c) determine certain elements of management’s incentive compensation. Specifically:

  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") is the measure of profitability used by management to manage its segments and, accordingly, in its segment reporting. The Company supplements the reporting of its consolidated financial information with certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as EBITDA excluding the impact of certain non-cash and other specifically identified items ("adjusted EBITDA"). The Company believes these non-U.S. GAAP measures provide meaningful information and help investors understand the Company’s financial results and assess its prospects for future performance. The Company uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its performance, both internally and as compared with its peers, because it excludes certain items that may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results. Consolidated EBITDA is calculated in a manner consistent with segment EBITDA, which is a measure of segment profitability.

  • The Company’s management believes that adjusted EBITDA, which excludes business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, the impact and results of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested, and other events such as impairment charges, share-based compensation associated with prior ownership and the sale of APi Group, Inc. (the "APi Acquisition"), transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation remeasurements associated with acquisitions, net COVID-19 relief, and certain tax benefits from the APi Acquisition, is useful because it provides investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations.

  • The Company’s management believes that organic net revenues change provides a consistent basis for year-over-year comparisons in net revenues as it excludes the impacts of material acquisitions, completed divestitures, and changes in foreign currency impacts. Foreign currency impacts represents the effect of foreign currency on current period reported net revenues and is calculated as the difference between current period net revenues by applying the prior year average monthly exchange rates to the current year local currency net revenues amounts (excluding acquisitions and divestitures).

  • Adjusted net revenues is defined as net revenues excluding the impact and results of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested. The Company’s management believes that this measure is useful as a supplement to enable investors to compare period-over-period results on a more consistent basis without the effects of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested, which more meaningfully reflects the Company’s core ongoing operations and performance. The Company uses adjusted net revenues to evaluate its performance, both internally and as compared with its peers, because it excludes certain items that may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results.

  • The Company presents free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion, which are liquidity measures used by management as factors in determining the amount of cash that is available for working capital needs or other uses of cash, however, it does not represent residual cash flows available for discretionary expenditures. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures. Adjusted free cash flow is defined as cash provided by (used in) operating activities plus or minus events including, but not limited to, transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, impacts of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested, and one-time and other events such as COVID-19 related payroll tax deferral and relief items. Adjusted free cash flow conversion is defined as adjusted free cash flow as a percentage of adjusted EBITDA.

  • The Company’s management believes that adjusted gross profit, adjusted selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, which all exclude business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, the impact and results of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested, and other events such as impairment charges, share-based compensation associated with prior ownership and the APi Acquisition, transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation remeasurements associated with acquisitions, net COVID-19 relief, and certain tax benefits from the APi Acquisition, is useful because it provides investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations in each of those respective measures.

The Company does not provide reconciliations of forward-looking non-U.S. GAAP adjusted EBITDA, organic net revenues growth and adjusted net revenues to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for acquisitions and divestitures, business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, one-time and other events such as impairment charges, transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, amortization of intangible assets, net COVID-19 relief, and certain tax benefits from the APi Acquisition, and other charges reflected in the Company’s reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.

While the Company believes these non-U.S. GAAP measures are useful in evaluating the Company’s performance, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for or superior to the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures may differ from similar measures presented by other companies.
