All amounts are in US dollars.Revenues for the third quarter were $741.9 million, a 10% increase relative to the same quarter in the prior year, Adjusted EBITDA (note 1) increased 15% to $88.7 million, and Adjusted EPS (note 2) was $1.19, representing 29% growth over the prior year quarter.

The GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.75 in the quarter, compared to $0.50 for the same quarter a year ago.For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, revenues were $2.00 billion, a 15% increase relative to the comparable prior year period, Adjusted EBITDA was $203.8 million, up 19%, and Adjusted EPS was $2.44, versus $2.38 in the prior year period. FirstService’s GAAP Operating Earnings were $120.0 million in the current year period, versus an Operating Loss of $205.8 million in the prior year, reflecting the 2019 settlement of the long-term incentive arrangement (“LTIA”) with its Founder and Chairman in the amount of $314.4 million.

More information is available at www.firstservice.com.Segmented Quarterly Results FirstService Residential revenues were $374.8 million for the third quarter, matching the top-line in the prior year quarter. Growth was tempered by continued COVID-related closures of client facilities, which negatively impacted our amenity management services revenue. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $41.8 million, versus $39.8 million in the prior year period. GAAP Operating Earnings were $35.2 million, versus $33.0 million for the third quarter of last year. Margin expansion during the quarter was driven by an increase in higher margin ancillary revenues, primarily related to strong home resale activity.FirstService Brands revenues during the third quarter grew to $367.2 million, up 24% relative to the prior year period, of which 15% was organic. Organic growth was principally driven by strong performance at our restoration service lines, which benefited from increased storm-related activity and large loss claims relative to last year. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was $48.7 million, versus $40.8 million in the prior year period. GAAP Operating Earnings were $28.5 million, versus $22.1 million in the prior year quarter.Corporate costs, as presented in Adjusted EBITDA, were $1.8 million in the third quarter, relative to $3.5 million in the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, corporate costs for the quarter were $4.5 million, relative to $5.4 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year cost reduction is due to lower compensation costs and foreign exchange.Conference Call FirstService will be holding a conference call on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss the quarter’s results. The numbers to use for this call are 1) toll-free 1-888-241-0551; or 2) for international callers, 647-427-3415.

This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements and MD&A to be made available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.Notes 1\. Reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted EBITDA:Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings, adjusted to exclude: (i) income tax; (ii) other expense (income); (iii) interest expense; (iv) depreciation and amortization; (v) acquisition-related items; (vi) stock-based compensation expense; and (vii) settlement of the LTIA. We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our own operating performance and our ability to service debt, as well as an integral part of our planning and reporting systems. Additionally, we use this measure in conjunction with discounted cash flow models to determine the Company’s overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We present adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure because we believe such measure is useful to investors as a reasonable indicator of operating performance because of the low capital intensity of the Company’s service operations. We believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare companies, especially in the services industry. This measure is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP in the United States, and should not be considered as a substitute for operating earnings, net earnings or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating adjusted EBITDA may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers.A reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted EBITDA appears below.  Three months ended Nine months ended (in thousands of US$)September 30 September 30   2020  2019  2020  2019                Net earnings (loss)$40,966  $26,336  $76,663  $(241,199) Income tax 12,969   10,872   24,118   20,650  Other income, net (269)  (229)  (645)  (6,353) Interest expense, net 5,464   12,719   19,881   21,060  Operating earnings (loss) 59,130   49,698   120,017   (205,842) Depreciation and amortization 26,184   24,181   73,179   51,033  Settlement of long-term incentive arrangement -   -   -   314,379  Acquisition-related items 950   1,493   1,752   5,373  Stock-based compensation expense 2,468   1,772   8,880   6,382  Adjusted EBITDA$88,732  $77,144  $203,828  $171,325  2\. Reconciliation of net earnings and diluted net earnings per share to adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share: Adjusted earnings per share is defined as diluted net earnings per share, adjusted for the effect, after income tax, of: (i) the non-controlling interest redemption increment; (ii) acquisition-related items; (iii) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions; (iv) stock-based compensation expense; (v) a stock-based compensation tax adjustment related to a US GAAP change; and (vi) settlement of the LTIA. We believe this measure is useful to investors because it provides a supplemental way to understand the underlying operating performance of the Company and enhances the comparability of operating results from period to period. Adjusted earnings per share is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as a substitute for diluted net earnings per share, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating this non-GAAP measure may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers.A reconciliation of net earnings to adjusted net earnings and of diluted net earnings per share to adjusted earnings per share appears below.  Three months ended Nine months ended (in thousands of US$)September 30 September 30   2020  2019  2020  2019                Net earnings (loss)$40,966  $26,336  $76,663  $(241,199) Non-controlling interest share of earnings (760)  (2,057)  (5,841)  (6,262) Settlement of long-term incentive arrangement -   -   -   314,379  Acquisition-related items 950   1,493   1,752   5,373  Amortization of intangible assets 13,191   13,029   35,416   22,235  Stock-based compensation expense 2,468   1,772   8,880   6,382  Stock-based compensation tax adjustment for US GAAP change -   -   -   (2,854) Income tax on adjustments (4,071)  (3,848)  (11,517)  (8,149) Non-controlling interest on adjustments (303)  (374)  (823)  (542) Adjusted net earnings$52,441  $36,351  $104,530  $89,363                  Three months ended Nine months ended (in US$)September 30 September 30   2020  2019  2020  2019                Diluted net earnings (loss) per share$0.75  $0.50  $1.52  $(6.84) Non-controlling interest redemption increment 0.17   0.11   0.13   0.25  Settlement of long-term incentive arrangement -   -   -   8.37  Acquisition-related items 0.02   0.04   0.04   0.12  Amortization of intangible assets, net of tax 0.21   0.24   0.60   0.43  Stock-based compensation expense, net of tax 0.04   0.03   0.15   0.13  Stock-based compensation tax adjustment for US GAAP change -   -   -   (0.08) Adjusted earnings per share$1.19  $0.92  $2.44  $2.38                FIRSTSERVICE CORPORATION Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (in thousands of US dollars, except per share amounts)      Three months  Nine months      ended September 30  ended September 30 (unaudited)  2020   2019   2020   2019                  Revenues $741,932  $672,253  $1,997,360  $1,731,816                  Cost of revenues  496,367   451,671   1,343,526   1,181,025  Selling, general and administrative expenses  159,301   145,210   458,886   385,848  Depreciation  12,993   11,152   37,763   28,798  Amortization of intangible assets  13,191   13,029   35,416   22,235  Settlement of long-term incentive arrangement  -   -   -   314,379  Acquisition-related items (1)  950   1,493   1,752   5,373  Operating earnings (loss)  59,130   49,698   120,017   (205,842) Interest expense, net  5,464   12,719   19,881   21,060  Other income  (269)  (229)  (645)  (6,353) Earnings (loss) before income tax  53,935   37,208   100,781   (220,549) Income tax  12,969   10,872   24,118   20,650  Net earnings (loss)  40,966   26,336   76,663   (241,199) Non-controlling interest share of earnings  760   2,057   5,841   6,262  Non-controlling interest redemption increment  7,379   4,419   5,588   9,386  Net earnings (loss) attributable to Company $32,827  $19,860  $65,234  $(256,847)               Net earnings (loss) per common share             Basic $0.76  $0.51  $1.54  $(6.93) Diluted  0.75   0.50   1.52   (6.93)                             Adjusted earnings per share (2) $1.19  $0.92  $2.44  $2.38                Weighted average common shares (thousands)             Basic  43,476   39,224   42,480   37,087  Diluted  43,942   39,691   42,868   37,542  Notes to Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Loss) (1) Acquisition-related items include transaction costs, and contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments.
