Bernzott Capital Advisors made the following comment about BrightView Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:BV) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

BrightView Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:BV): The commercial landscaping services provider underperformed as higher fuel and labor costs negatively impacted margins. The company is working to increase pricing by revising contract structure to include CPI escalators as well as through annual contract renewals, however these efforts to restore margins have taken longer than expectations. Modestly worsening leverage ratios may also have played a part in the stock’s weakness. As a result, we have reduced our position in this holding.”
