This release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures described as "Adjusted EBITDA", "Adjusted income from continuing operations," and "Adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share". These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of underlying operational results and trends as well as the Company’s operational performance. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to certain GAAP financial measures. We round amounts in these schedules to millions and calculate all percentages and per-share data from the underlying whole-dollar amounts. As a result, certain amounts may not foot, crossfoot, or recalculate based on reported numbers due to rounding. Unless otherwise noted, all references to years are to our fiscal year, which ends on October 31.

Fourth Quarter Performance

For the fourth quarter of 2016, revenues of approximately $1.3 billion increased 3.5% and organic revenue increased 2.0%, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Revenues were driven primarily by organic growth stemming from the Company’s Janitorial segment due to an increase in scope of work with existing accounts, including continued Work Order (tag) sales, and new business. Organic growth within the Parking and Other (Air Serv) segments also contributed to the Company’s total revenue growth. In addition, acquisitions provided $19.3 million of incremental revenues during the quarter primarily related to Westway.

During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company committed to a plan to sell its Government business, which is currently included in the Building & Energy Solutions segment but does not fit strategically with the Company’s 2020 Vision transformation. In conjunction with this decision, the Company recorded a non-cash, pre-tax impairment charge of $22.5 million during the quarter. As a result, on a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations was $9.0 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $22.6 million, or $0.39 per diluted share last year. The decrease in income from continuing operations versus last year is also attributable to higher expenses related to current year insurance, and one additional working day during the quarter. These expenses were partially offset by the Company’s 2020 Vision Savings initiatives.

Adjusted income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $29.2 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, compared to $31.5 million, or $0.55 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. The decrease versus last year is attributable to the above mentioned factors, but excludes certain items impacting comparability, including the impairment associated with the Government business. A full description of items impacting comparability can be found in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table.

Total net income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $7.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income of $38.8 million, or $0.68 per diluted share last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $61.5 million compared to $69.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter was 4.6% versus 5.4% last year. The decreases versus last year are attributable to higher expenses related to current year insurance, and one additional working day during the quarter, which was partially offset by the Company’s 2020 Vision Savings initiatives.

Scott Salmirs, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABM Industries, commented, "I am extremely proud that we continued to execute throughout a year of significant transformation. Our entire organization will look back on 2016 as a pivotal year, where we accomplished all that we intended and set the stage for continuing acceleration. We remain committed to capturing greater value for our shareholders, customers and employees."

Fiscal 2016 Performance

The Company reported a revenue increase of 5.0% to approximately $5.1 billion, driven by organic revenue growth of 3.0% for 2016 compared to 2015. Revenues were driven primarily by organic growth within the Company’s Janitorial segment due to new business and expansion of existing accounts, including strong Work Order (tag) revenue, increased scope of work within Other (Air Serv) operations, and higher revenues from the ABES (Technical Services) business. Revenues also benefited from growth within the Parking segment. Additionally, acquisitions provided $101.9 million of incremental revenues during the fiscal year, primarily related to Westway and CTS, which is reflected in the Building & Energy Solutions segment.

On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations grew 15.2% to $62.3 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $54.1 million, or $0.94 per diluted share last year. A benefit from taxes, and savings related to the Company’s 2020 Vision initiative, more than offset the impairment expense related to the Government business, and higher expenses related to current year insurance.

Adjusted income from continuing operations for 2016 grew 6.7% to $99.2 million, or $1.74 per diluted share, compared to $92.9 million, or $1.62 per diluted share last year. The increase versus last year is attributable to the aforementioned factors, but excludes certain items impacting comparability. A full description of items impacting comparability can be found in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" table.

Total net income for 2016 was $57.2 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $76.3 million, or $1.33 per diluted share last year.

Adjusted EBITDA for 2016 was $212.2 million compared to $206.0 million in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA margin for 2016 was 4.1% versus 4.2% last year. The decrease versus last year is primarily attributable to higher expenses related to current year insurance, and one additional working day during the year, which was partially offset by the Company’s 2020 Vision Savings initiative.

Liquidity & Capital Structure

The Company ended the quarter with total debt, including standby letters of credit of $399.2 million. Total debt to proforma adjusted EBITDA was approximately 2.2x.

During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 0.4 million shares of common stock for $15.4 million. As of October 31, 2016, the Company had $141.9 million of remaining buyback availability under the $200.0 million share repurchase program.

Declaration of Quarterly Cash Dividend

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors approved a 3.0% increase for the quarterly cash dividend to $0.170 per common share, payable on February 6, 2017 to stockholders of record on January 5, 2017. This marks ABM’s 203rd consecutive quarterly cash dividend.

Guidance

For 2017, the Company expects GAAP income from continuing operations of $1.40 to $1.50 per diluted share, or adjusted income from continuing operations of $1.80 to $1.90 per diluted share. With the exception of the 2017 Work Opportunity Tax Credits, this guidance does not include any potential benefits associated with certain other discrete tax items and other unrecognized tax benefits.

Mr. Salmirs continued, "As we enter 2017, we will manage our business discerningly to support EBITDA margin acceleration along with keeping focused on the vertical markets where we see opportunities to grow. As a result, we have made the strategic decision to exit our Government business. Additionally, through our acute focus on executing our 2020 Vision initiative, we are seeking to identify areas where margins can grow to levels greater than originally projected."

Beginning with the first quarter of 2017, the Company will change its reportable operating segments based on its 2020 Vision reorganization. An example of the new segment structure can be found in the supplemental presentation accompanying the webcast on the Company’s website.

Cautionary Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains both historical and forward-looking statements. In this context, ABM Industries Incorporated ("ABM") and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as "ABM," "we," "us," "our," or the "Company"). We make forward-looking statements related to future expectations, estimates and projections that are uncertain, and often contain words such as "anticipate," "believe," "could," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "intend," "likely," "may," "outlook," "plan," "predict," "should," "target," or other similar words or phrases. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that are difficult to predict. For us, particular uncertainties that could cause our actual results to be materially different from those expressed in our forward-looking statements include: (1) changes to our businesses, operating structure, financial reporting structure, or personnel relating to the implementation of our 2020 Vision strategic transformation initiative may not have the desired effects on our financial condition and results of operations; (2) we may face difficulties identifying, acquiring, and integrating businesses; (3) we have high deductibles for certain insurable risks, and therefore we are subject to volatility associated with those risks, including the possibility that changes in estimates of ultimate insurance losses could result in a material charge against our earnings; (4) our risk management and safety programs may not have the intended effect of allowing us to reduce our insurance costs for casualty programs; (5) our business success depends on our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel and senior management; (6) our business success depends on our ability to preserve our long-term client relationships; (7) losses or other incidents at facilities in which we operate could cause significant damage to our reputation and financial loss; (8) our success depends on our ability to continue to gain profitable business despite competitive pressures; (9) costs that we cannot pass through to clients could affect our profitability; (10) our business may be negatively impacted by adverse weather conditions; (11) negative or unexpected tax consequences could adversely affect our results of operations; (12) we may not achieve the expected benefits from our captive insurance company; (13) changes in energy prices and government regulations could adversely impact the results of operations of our Building & Energy Solutions business; (14) significant delays or reductions in appropriations for our government contracts may negatively affect our business and could have an adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows; (15) our ability to do business may be affected by the failure of our joint venture partners to perform their obligations; (16) we could be subject to cyber-security risks, information technology interruptions, and business continuity risks; (17) operations in areas of military conflict expose us to additional risks; (18) general reductions in commercial office building occupancy could affect our revenues and profitability; (19) deterioration of general economic conditions could reduce the demand for facility services and, as a result, reduce our earnings and adversely affect our financial condition; (20) unfavorable developments in our class and representative actions and other lawsuits alleging various claims could cause us to incur substantial liabilities; (21) changes in immigration laws or enforcement actions or investigations under such laws could significantly adversely affect our labor force, operations, and financial results; (22) our participation in multiemployer pension plans could result in material liabilities; (23) future increases in the level of our borrowings or in interest rates could affect our results of operations; (24) impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations; (25) actions of activist investors could disrupt our business; and (26) catastrophic events, disasters, and terrorist attacks could disrupt our services. The list of factors above is illustrative and by no means exhaustive. Additional information regarding these and other risks and uncertainties we face is contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2015 and in other reports we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (including all amendments to those reports). We urge readers to consider these risks and uncertainties in evaluating our forward-looking statements. We caution readers not to place undue reliance upon any such forward- looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement ABM’s consolidated financial information, the Company has presented income from continuing operations as adjusted for items impacting comparability, for the fourth quarter and twelve months of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. These adjustments have been made with the intent of providing financial measures that give management and investors a better understanding of the underlying operational results and trends as well as ABM’s marketplace performance. In addition, the Company has presented earnings before income from discontinued operations, net of taxes, interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding items impacting comparability (adjusted EBITDA) for the fourth quarter and twelve months of fiscal years 2016 and 2015. Adjusted EBITDA is among the indicators management uses as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. (See accompanying financial tables for supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations to certain GAAP financial measures.)
