2021 Results

Consolidated revenue totaled $743.7 million in 2020, an increase of $139.0 million or 23.0% over 2020. The marine services segment delivered the best performance ever with 2021 revenue closing at $427.0 million, compared to $344.6 million, an increase of 23.9%. Our port terminal operations reported a record tonnage handled in 2021 due to strong demand throughout the year, which led to these outstanding results. The environmental services segment also achieved a remarkable performance with revenue reaching $316.7 million for 2021, up from $260.1 million or 21.8% from the previous year. Revenue growth was especially robust in the drinking water infrastructure renewal market. Our field-proven technologies provide solutions to ensure safe and reliable water supply and represents a significant driver for our growth in the Canadian and U.S. markets.

LOGISTEC reported a profit for the year of $45.6 million, of which $45.4 million was attributable to owners of the Company. This translated into total diluted earnings per share of $3.46 of which $3.31 per share was attributable to Class A Common Shares and $3.64 per share was attributable to Class B Subordinate Voting Shares.


In 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic persisted with the emergence of variants, but despite that, we benefited from a gradual economic recovery. Our expertise combined with a proven strategy of innovation and targeted diversification, allowed us to increase our revenue and improve our profitability.

From a global perspective, the current situation between Russia and Ukraine and the related sanctions being brought forth by various countries may influence the flow of industrial commodities. It is difficult to predict what the outcome will be, as some cargoes could be negatively affected, whereas alternative cargoes could be favoured.

Coming out of our best year ever, our marine services segment remains strong, and we have the confidence and support of our customers and our partners. Our environmental services segment is also in a good position to perform, with a solid order book to start 2022 and new business opportunities from our latest acquisition, American Process Group.

We are confident we can continue to deliver a strong financial performance in the future, as we can count on our talented team, our vision and values, a solid strategic plan and a sound financial position. We will continue to seek growth opportunities, both organic and through acquisitions, while creating value for all our stakeholders.

Non-IFRS measure

Adjusted earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense (“adjusted EBITDA”) is not defined by IFRS and cannot be formally presented in financial statements. The definition of adjusted EBITDA excludes the Company’s impairment charge, includes the customer repayment of an investment in a service contract and, since 2021, excludes configuration and customization costs related to the implementation of an ERP system. The definition of adjusted EBITDA used by the Company may differ from those used by other companies. Even though adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure, it is used by managers, analysts, investors, and other financial stakeholders to analyze and assess the Company’s performance and management from a financial and operational standpoint.
