Rollins, Inc. Reports Third Quarter and Nine Months 2020 Financial Results

7:30 am ET October 28, 2020 (PR Newswire) Print

-- Total revenue increased 4.9% for the quarter despite pandemic hardships, with residential revenues increasing 10.6% over third quarter 2019

-- Earnings Per Share of $0.24 for the third quarter 2020 impacted by $0.02 from one-time non-cash accelerated stock vesting of $6.7 million compared to Earnings Per Share of $0.13 for third quarter 2019 impacted by $26.6 million of after-tax pension settlement loss

-- Adjusted earnings per share* of $0.26 for third quarter 2020 adjusted for accelerated stock vesting and adjusted earnings per share* of $0.22 for third quarter 2019 adjusted for divesting of the pension

Rollins, Inc. (NYSE:ROL), a premier global consumer and commercial services company, reported strong unaudited financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

The Company recorded third quarter revenues of $583.7 million, an increase of 4.9% over the prior year's third quarter revenue of $556.5 million. Rollins' reported net income of $79.6 million or $0.24 per diluted share for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to $44.1 million or $0.13 per diluted share for the same period in 2019. Adjusted net income* for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $86.3 million or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income* of $70.6 million or $0.22 per diluted share for the same quarter in 2019.

Rollins' revenues rose 7.6% for the first nine months of 2020 to $1.625 billion compared to $1.509 billion for the prior year. Net income for the first nine months of 2020 was $198.2 million or $0.60 per diluted share compared to $152.6 million or $0.47 per diluted share for the same period last year. Adjusted net income* for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $204.9 million or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to $179.2 million or $0.55 per diluted share for the same period last year.

The Company's profit improvement came primarily from the continuation of cost containment efforts implemented at the onset of the pandemic, Rollins ongoing routing and scheduling enhancements, and lower fuel prices. The increased spending on personal protective equipment and new health screening initiatives partly offset our cost savings initiatives.

With many people quarantined or working from home, we continue to see strong residential revenue growth. This has helped to offset the negative impact the pandemic has had on our commercial customers. After its launch this year, we are growing our new VitalClean sanitation services that help businesses reopen while protecting their employees and customers.

As announced in a press release on August 18, 2020, the Company's Chairman of the Board, R. Randall Rollins, passed away. Per the stock compensation plan, Mr. Rollins' restricted stock grants vesting was accelerated, resulting in a one-time non-cash expense of $6.7 million.

Gary W. Rollins, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rollins, Inc. stated, "The loss of Randall is felt profoundly, not only by our family, his friends and me personally, but also by a multitude of Rollins' employees and colleagues who had the privilege of knowing him during his over 70 years of contribution to the Rollins companies. He exemplified the principles of integrity, innovation and dedication instilled by our father O. Wayne Rollins"

CAUTION CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS This release contains statements that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include statements about the Company's continued strong residential revenue growth, and the success of the Company's new VitalClean sanitation services and the impact such services have on the ability of the Company's customers to reopen and protect their own employees and customers. The actual results of the Company could differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements because of various risks and uncertainties, including without limitation, the extent and duration of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its potential impact on the financial health of the Company's business partners, customers, supply chains and suppliers, global economic conditions and capital and financial markets, changes in consumer behavior and demand, the potential unavailability of personnel or key facilities, modifications to the Company's operations, and the potential implementation of regulatory actions; economic and competitive conditions which may adversely affect the Company's business; the degree of success of the Company's pest and termite process, and pest control selling and treatment methods; the Company's ability to identify and integrate potential acquisitions; climate and weather trends; competitive factors and pricing practices; the Company's ability to attract and retain skilled workers, and potential increases in labor costs; uncertainties of litigation; and changes in various government laws and regulations, including environmental regulations. All of the foregoing risks and uncertainties are beyond the ability of the Company to control, and in many cases the Company cannot predict the risks and uncertainties that could cause its actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. A more detailed discussion of potential risks facing the Company can be found in the Company's Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2019 and the Company's Report on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has used the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS in today's earnings release. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or other performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses adjusted net income and adjusted EPS as a measure of operating performance because it allows it to compare performance consistently over various periods without regard to the impact of the accelerated stock vesting expense and pension settlement losses.

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that either 1) excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows, or 2) includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable measure so calculated and presented.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS with net income, the most comparable GAAP measures.
