2022 Results – Strong Financial Performance

Consolidated revenue totaled $897.6 million in 2022, an increase of $153.9 million or 20.7% over fiscal 2021. More importantly, we achieved record adjusted earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization expense (“Adjusted EBITDA”) (1) of $142.1 million and a profit attributable to owners of the Company of $53.5 million, a first in our history. These earnings also led us to achieve another milestone: earnings per share (“EPS”) above $4.00 per share, with total diluted earnings per share computing at $4.12 per share.

The marine services segment handled record volumes in response to high demand in the supply chain and delivered great results with 2022 revenue closing at $565.8 million, compared to $427.0 million, an increase of 32.5% over 2021. Operations expanded at Lemont (IL), a strategic gateway to the greater Chicago area markets and other Midwest states. We strengthened our partnerships with key ports, signing long-term agreements across our network.

The environmental services segment produced revenue reaching $331.7 million for 2022, up 4.7% from $316.7 million from the prior year. Revenue was driven by our recent acquisition of American Process Group, which contributed to a full year of revenue in 2022.

LOGISTEC reported a profit for the year of $54.0 million, of which $53.5 million was attributable to owners of the Company. This translated into total diluted earnings per share of $4.12, of which $3.95 per share was attributable to Class A Common Shares and $4.34 per share was attributable to Class B Subordinate Voting Shares.

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 configuration and customization costs related to the implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (“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.
