Russ Becker, APi’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated: "In honor of Veteran’s Day, I would like to thank the service men and women across our country for their sacrifices. The values and culture at APi have long been influenced by our leadership’s respect and reverence for the values of the U.S. military. We have a long history of hiring and supporting veterans and have hired an average of 450 veterans annually over the past three years. We are honored to have many leaders that are veterans in our workforce today."

"I am pleased with our results for the third quarter and our team’s ability to execute. I am proud of how our team has continued to show commitment and dedication to serving customers safely and efficiently. The safety, health, and well-being of all of our employees and constituencies is our number one priority. I am also pleased that the acquisition of SK FireSafety Group that we announced at the end of the quarter closed shortly after the fourth quarter began and look forward to the three other acquisitions we announced closing by the end of the year and joining the APi family."

"Although market conditions as a result of COVID-19 remain uncertain and visibility is still somewhat limited, we are comfortable raising our 2020 guidance for adjusted net revenues, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS. We remain focused on our pre-COVID-19 objectives and are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for the base business as well as the outlook for incremental opportunistic M&A activity."

APi Co-Chair James E. Lillie added: "We are encouraged by our results this quarter, particularly in light of a difficult macro environment. We remain confident in our previously stated long-term value creation targets and believe that the resilience of our people, as well as our recurring revenue services-focused business model, have allowed us to continue to execute against our long-term goals for the business. We believe that we are well-positioned to deliver consistent, profitable growth for our shareholders by optimizing the performance of our existing businesses, pursuing a disciplined acquisition strategy and effectively managing our capital structure. We have a strong balance sheet with a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio at the end of the third quarter of 1.8x and we entered the fourth quarter announcing four acquisitions. We are cautiously optimistic about the opportunities in front of us while being realistic about the challenges COVID-19 creates."

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 and includes a reconciliation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. 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:

  • The Company’s management believes that "adjusted" net revenues, "adjusted" gross margin, "adjusted" selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expense, "adjusted" operating income (loss), "adjusted" net income, and "adjusted" earnings per share, which 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 one-time and other events such as impairment charges, share-based compensation, 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 acquisition of APi Group, Inc. (the "APi Acquisition"), are useful because they provide investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations.

  • The Company also presents changes in organic net revenues to provide a more complete understanding of underlying revenue trends by providing net revenues on a consistent basis as it excludes the impacts of significant acquisitions, planned or completed divestitures, and changes in foreign currency from year-over-year comparisons on reported net revenues, calculated as the difference between the reported net revenues for the year and the prior year local currency net revenues converted at the prior year average monthly exchange rates (excluding acquisitions and divestitures).

  • 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 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 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.

The Company does not provide reconciliations of forward-looking non-U.S. GAAP adjusted net revenues, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS guidance 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 acquisition of APi Group, Inc. (the "APi Acquisition"), and other charges reflected in our 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. A reconciliation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures is included later in this press release.
