IESI-BFC Ltd. Announces Strong Results for the Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2009

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 29, 2009) - IESI-BFC Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX:BIN)(NYSE:BIN) reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009. All amounts are in thousands of U.S. dollars, with the exception of per share or trust unit and participating preferred share ("PPS") amounts, unless otherwise stated.

Management Commentary

Revenue totalled $253.7 million in the quarter compared with $277.6 million in the year ago period. Holding foreign currency exchange ("FX") constant with the comparative period, revenue in the second quarter would have totalled $267.9 million. Operating income was $31.3 million compared with $31.3 million in the second quarter of 2008 and would have been $34.3 million, holding FX constant, representing an increase of 9.5% over the year ago period. Operating income before amortization, or EBITDA(A), for the quarter was $72.5 million, or 28.6% of revenue, compared to $77.0 million, or 27.7% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2008. Holding FX constant, EBITDA(A) for the second quarter of 2009 would have been $77.5 million.

Net income in the quarter was $15.1 million, or $0.18 per share on a weighted average diluted basis of 81.9 million shares. Before the impact of foreign currency translation, net income in the quarter was $16.8 million or $0.20 per share. In the period a year ago, the Company reported net income of $17.4 million, or $0.25 on a weighted average diluted basis of 68.7 million shares. The 19.2% second quarter increase in our weighted average diluted share count is due to equity offerings completed in March 2009 and June 2009.

Organic growth for the three months ended June 30, 2009 increased 0.7% in Canada (consisting of a 3.3% core price increase, partially offset by decreases of 1.1% in volume, 1.1% in fuel surcharges and 0.4% in recycling and other pricing) and decreased 7.4% in the U.S. (consisting of a 2.4% core price increase offset by decreases of 4.4% in volume, 3.0% in fuel surcharges and 2.4% in recycling and other pricing).

"We are very pleased with the results of our second quarter which continued to demonstrate the positive impact of our market-focused growth strategies," said Keith Carrigan, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, IESI-BFC Ltd. "In spite of the recessionary climate, we increased our operating margins and achieved an improvement in EBITDA(A) over the same quarter a year ago, excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. Additionally, we achieved an increase in revenues in Canada in the quarter, before the impact of foreign exchange. While it remains a challenging operating environment, we saw encouraging signs in our markets that suggest a stabilization of waste volumes on a sequential basis."

Mr. Carrigan continued, "With a debt-to-EBITDA(A) ratio below 2.3 times on a consolidated basis and our strong free cash flow(B) profile, we are well positioned to create shareholder value by continuing to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions, while also paying a quarterly dividend."

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, revenue was $477.6 million, compared with revenues of $521.0 million in the year ago period. Holding FX constant, year-to-date revenue would have been $508.9 million. Operating income was $56.4 million compared with $56.9 million in the same period in 2008. Year-to-date operating income would have been $62.4 million, an increase of 9.6% over 2008, holding FX constant. EBITDA(A) for the year-to-date period was $135.1 million compared to $145.3 million in 2008 and would have been $145.9 million holding FX constant.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, net income was $24.7 million, or $0.32 per weighted average diluted share, compared with $28.8 million or $0.42 per share in the year ago period.

Change in Reporting Currency and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

In connection with our listing on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and U.S. public offering, we have elected to report our financial results in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, all comparative financial information contained in this press release has been recast from thousands of Canadian to U.S. dollars, unless otherwise stated.

Conversion

Pursuant to the plan of arrangement, the conversion of the BFI Canada Income Fund (the "Fund") trust structure to a corporation resulted in unitholder's of the Fund receiving one common share of BFI Canada Ltd., predecessor to IESI-BFC Ltd. ("IESI-BFC"), for each trust unit held on the effective date of conversion, October 1, 2008. The Class A unit held by IESI Corporation ("IESI") was redeemed by the Fund for ten Canadian dollars and IESI-BFC issued, and IESI subscribed for, 11,137 special voting shares for aggregate cash consideration of ten Canadian dollars. The participating preferred shares ("PPSs") issued by IESI remain outstanding and exchangeable into common shares of IESI-BFC on a one for one basis, instead of trust units of the Fund. These exchanges did not constitute a change of control such that the consolidated financial statements have been prepared applying continuity of interests accounting. With the exception of the December 31, 2008 consolidated balance sheet, the comparative figures presented herein are those of the Fund.

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, the increase in Canadian segment gross revenues is due principally to core price and acquisition growth. Core price growth includes the recovery of recycling and commodity price declines. The decline in fuel surcharges is due to the comparative decrease in fuel costs while the comparative decline attributable to collected volumes is due principally to lower collected industrial waste.

U.S. south segment gross revenues declined. The comparative decline in fuel surcharges was partially offset by core price growth. The decline in fuel surcharges is due to the comparative decline in fuel costs. Lower construction and demolition volumes also contributed to the decline, partially offset by contributions from acquisitions.

Gross revenues in the U.S. northeast segment declined. Lower industrial collection volumes coupled with lower recycling and other pricing are the primary contributors to the decline. Acquisitions, coupled with core price increases partially offset the aforementioned. The balance of the change is attributable to declining fuel surcharges. We are encouraged that our performance in the U.S. northeast segment has stabilized.

Six months ended

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, the increase in Canadian segment gross revenues attributable to core price, acquisition, and fuel surcharges are consistent with the reasons outlined above for the three months ended. The decline in volumes is due in large part to lower third party waste volumes accepted at our landfills. Recycling and other pricing declines represent the balance of the change.

U.S. south segment gross revenues declined. The comparative year to date decline in fuel surcharges outpaced strong core pricing growth. Lower construction and demolition volumes and recycling and other pricing also contributed to the decline, partially offset by contributions from acquisitions.

Gross revenues in our U.S. northeast segment declined. Lower industrial collection, transfer and disposal volumes and recycling commodity prices contributed to the decline year to date. Acquisitions, coupled with core price increases, partially offset the aforementioned.

Operating expenses

Three months ended

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, the decline in Canadian segment operating expenses is due to lower vehicle operating costs, largely due to a decline in comparative fuel costs. Higher labour expense, due in part to acquisitions, partially offset declines in vehicle operating costs.

Lower fuel costs is the primary reason for our U.S. south segment's decline in operating costs, which was partially offset by higher insurance claims costs. Lower disposal, transportation and vehicle operating costs are the primary reasons for the comparative decline in our U.S. northeast segment. Lower disposal costs are due in large part to the economic slow down in this region, while lower transportation and vehicle operating costs are due to the comparative decline in fuel costs.

Six months ended

Foreign currency exchange is the primary reason for the year to date decline in Canadian segment operating costs. Lower fuel costs also contributed to the decline in Canadian segment operating expenses, partially offset by higher labour expense, due in part to acquisitions.

Year to date our U.S. south segment benefited from lower fuel costs resulting in lower vehicle operating costs. The balance of the change is attributable to higher insurance claims costs. Lower year to date operating costs, for our U.S. northeast segment, are consistent with the reasons outlined above for the three months ended.

SG&A expenses

Three months ended

Canadian segment SG&A expense is largely unchanged. However, the impact of foreign currency exchange was almost entirely offset by higher salaries. Higher salaries are due in part to higher sales staffing levels.

Higher professional fees are the primary reasons for the rise in our U.S. south and northeast segment SG&A expense coupled with higher salary expenses due to higher sales staffing levels.

Six months ended

Changes in SG&A expense, for all segments, are consistent with the reasons outlined above for the three months ended, with the exception of an increase resulting from fair value changes in stock options recorded in our Canadian segment.

Non-controlling interest

With the adoption of FASB's Financial Accounting Standard No. 160, "Non-controlling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements" ("SFAS 160"), which became effective January 1, 2009, we changed the presentation of non-controlling interests from mezzanine equity to equity on our consolidated balance sheet. Non-controlling interest is no longer deducted in the determination of net income. Instead, net income and each component of other comprehensive (loss) income are attributed to shareholders' equity and non-controlling interest. Adopting this section affects our determination of net income presented in the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive (loss) income, the presentation of net income and non-controlling interest in the consolidated statement of cash flows, and the presentation of non-controlling interest in the consolidated statement of equity.

Free cash flow (B)

Purpose and objective

The purpose of presenting this non-GAAP measure is to align our disclosure with other U.S. publicly listed companies in our industry. Investors and analysts use this calculation as a measure of our valuation and liquidity. We use this non-GAAP measure to assess our performance relative to other U.S. publicly listed companies, to assess our primary sources and uses of cash flow, and to assess our ability to sustain our dividend policy.

Three months ended

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, free cash flow(B) declined comparatively. While we enjoyed increasing EBITDA(A) contributions from our Canadian and U.S. south segments, EBITDA(A) decreased comparatively in the U.S. northeast. On balance, however, EBITDA(A) increased period over period, excluding foreign currency exchange. Contributions from the Canadian and U.S. south segments are attributable to growth through acquisition coupled with declines in vehicle operating costs, driven principally by declines in fuel costs. The decline in U.S. northeast EBITDA(A) contributions is due largely to lower volumes in the region, coupled with lower commodity and other pricing, which is the result of economic weakness. An increase in current income tax expense (excluding foreign currency exchange), coupled with the timing of capital and landfill purchases (excluding foreign currency exchange), is the primary reason for the decline period to period. The increase in current income tax expense is largely attributable to the Canadian segment. The conversion from an income trust to a corporation effectively eliminated the Canadian segments ability to shelter taxable income beyond its available loss carryforwards, which are being eroded at a more vigorous pace since conversion. The timing of contract wins, capital asset purchases to operate an acquired landfill in our U.S. south segment, and working capital adjustments, partially offset by lower growth expenditures in other areas of our business are the primary reasons for our U.S. segment increase in capital and landfill asset purchases period to period. In addition, the timing of landfill closure and post-closure expenditures in our U.S. northeast segment contributed to the comparative increase in spending.

Lower interest on long-term debt (excluding foreign currency exchange) helped soften the aforementioned declines. The decline in interest expense is the result of applying net proceeds from our March and June common share offerings to the repayment of long-term debt coupled with lower dividend levels and lower borrowing costs on variable rate lending in both Canada and the U.S.

Six months ended

For the six months ended, free cash flow(B) increased, excluding the negative impact of foreign currency exchange. An increase in EBITDA(A), excluding foreign currency exchange, coupled with lower interest expense (excluding foreign currency exchange), are the primary reasons for the comparative increase. Higher capital and landfill purchases (excluding foreign currency exchange) and higher current income tax expense (excluding foreign currency exchange), partially offset the higher EBITDA(A) and lower interest expense contributions to free cash flow(B). The reasons for the year to date changes are consistent with those outlined above for the three months ended.

Capital and landfill purchases

Capital and landfill purchases characterized as replacement and growth expenditures are as follows:



Three months ended June 30 Six months ended June 30
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2009 2008 Change 2009 2008 Change
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Replacement $ 16,983 $ 19,946 $ (2,963) $ 29,772 $ 29,372 $ 400

Total $ 39,217 $ 37,647 $ 1,570 $ 59,714 $ 59,502 $ 212
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Capital and landfill purchases - replacement

Capital and landfill purchases characterized as "replacement expenditures", represent cash outlays to sustain current cash flows and are funded from free cash flow(B). Replacement expenditures may include some or all of the following: the replacement of existing capital assets, including vehicles, equipment, containers, compactors, furniture, fixtures and computer equipment. Replacement expenditures also include all landfill construction spending for our operating landfills, which is principally comprised of cell construction.

Three months ended

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, replacement expenditures decreased. Both the Canadian and U.S. segment declines are due in large part to the timing of landfill cell construction with the balance attributable to working capital adjustments.

Six months ended

Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, replacement expenditures increased. The increase in Canadian segment expenditures is due almost entirely to the timing of cell construction at our Lachenaie landfill. The reasons for the U.S. segment decline are consistent with the reasons outlined above for the three months ended.

Capital and landfill purchases - growth

Capital and landfill purchases characterized as "growth expenditures", represent cash outlays to generate new or future cash flows and are generally funded from free cash flow(B). Growth expenditures may include some or all of the following: vehicles, equipment, containers, compactors, furniture, fixtures and computer equipment to support new contract wins and organic business growth.

Three months ended

Net of foreign currency exchange, growth expenditures increased. In Canada growth expenditures declined slightly while growth expenditures in the U.S. increased. The primary reason for our U.S. segment increase is due to contract wins, capital asset purchases to operate an acquired landfill in our U.S. south segment, and working capital adjustments, partially offset by lower growth expenditures in other areas of our business.

Six months ended

Net of foreign currency exchange, growth expenditures increased. In Canada growth expenditures declined while growth expenditures in the U.S. increased. The Canadian segment decline is due in large part to capital purchased to service new residential contract wins which commenced in 2008. The reasons for the U.S. segment increase are consistent with the reasons outlined above for the three months ended.

Readers are reminded that revenue, EBITDA(A), and cash flow contributions derived from vehicles, equipment and container growth expenditures will materialize over the assets useful life.

Canadian long-term debt facilities

We drew on our revolving credit facility capacity to repay our C$47,000 senior secured series A debentures which matured on June 26, 2009. Drawing on the revolving credit facility had no impact on our Canadian segments funded debt to EBITDA(A) covenant, as this covenant includes both revolving credit facility drawings and senior secured debenture borrowings. We entered into our fifth amendment to our amended and restated credit facility. The fifth amendment simply recognized the wind-up of the Fund and Ridge Landfill Trust. All significant terms and pricing remained unchanged.

Long-term debt to EBITDA(A)

At June 30, 2009, we are not in default of our Canadian and U.S. long-term debt facility covenants. Readers are reminded that our long-term debt to EBITDA(A) covenants are not subject to foreign currency exchange fluctuations. Holding the foreign currency exchange rate between Canada and the U.S. at parity, results in a long-term debt to EBITDA(A) ratio of 2.28 times. Readers are further reminded that contributions to EBITDA(A) from acquisitions completed within the last twelve months are not included in the foregoing ratio and that we have two revolving credit facilities to support our Canadian and U.S. operations, each of which require financial covenant tests to be prepared independently.

Funded debt to EBITDA(A)

At June 30, 2009, funded long-term debt to EBITDA(A) for Canada and the U.S., as defined and calculated in accordance with the underlying Canadian and U.S. long-term debt facility covenants, is as follows:

Definitions of EBITDA and free cash flow

(A) All references to "EBITDA" in this press release are to revenues less operating and selling, general and administration expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive (loss) income. EBITDA excludes some or all of the following: "amortization, interest on long-term debt, financing costs, net gain or loss on sale of capital and landfill assets, net foreign exchange gain or loss, net gain or loss on financial instruments, conversion costs, other expenses, and income taxes". EBITDA is a term used by us that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. EBITDA is a measure of our operating profitability, and by definition, excludes certain items as detailed above. These items are viewed by us as either non-cash (in the case of amortization, net gain or loss on financial instruments, net foreign exchange gain or loss, and deferred income taxes) or non-operating (in the case of interest on long-term debt, net gain or loss on sale of capital and landfill assets, conversion costs, other expenses, and current income taxes). EBITDA is a useful financial and operating metric for us, our Board of Directors, and our lenders, as it represents a starting point in the determination of free cash flow(B). The underlying reasons for exclusion of each item are as follows:

Amortization - as a non-cash item amortization has no impact on the determination of free cash flow (B).

Interest on long-term debt - interest on long-term debt is a function of our debt/equity mix and interest rates; as such, it reflects our treasury/financing activities and represents a different class of expense than those included in EBITDA.

Net gain or loss on sale of capital and landfill assets - proceeds from the sale of capital and landfill assets are either reinvested in additional or replacement capital or landfill assets or used to repay revolving credit facility borrowings.

Net foreign exchange gain or loss - as non-cash items, foreign exchange gains or losses have no impact on the determination of free cash flow(B).

Net gain or loss on financial instruments - as non-cash items, gains or losses on financial instruments have no impact on the determination of free cash flow(B).

Conversion costs - conversion costs represent professional fees incurred on the Fund's conversion from an income trust to a corporation and its eventual wind-up. Conversion costs represent a different class of expense than those included in EBITDA.

Other expenses - other expenses typically represent amounts paid to certain management of acquired companies who are retained by us post acquisition. These expenses are not considered an expense indicative of continuing operations. Accordingly, other expenses represent a different class of expense than those included in EBITDA.

Income taxes - income taxes are a function of tax laws and rates and are affected by matters which are separate from our daily operations.

EBITDA should not be construed as a measure of income or of cash flows. The reconciling items between EBITDA and net income are detailed in the consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive (loss) income beginning with operating income before amortization and ending with net income.

(B) We have adopted a measure called "free cash flow" to supplement net income or (loss) as a measure of operating performance. Free cash flow is a term which does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP, is prepared before dividends and or distributions declared, and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. The objective of presenting this non-GAAP measure is to align our disclosure with disclosures presented by other U.S. publicly listed companies in the waste industry, to assess our primary sources and uses of cash flow, and to assess our ability to sustain our dividend. All references to "free cash flow" in this press release have the meaning set out in this note.
