-Accelerates business mix shift towards 60% of revenues from inspection, service, and monitoring-

-Company raises full year guidance-

APi Group Corporation (NYSE: APG) (“APi” or the “Company”) today announced that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Elevated Facility Services Group (“Elevated”) from a fund managed by L Squared Capital Partners for approximately $570 million.

Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Elevated has approximately 600 leaders and serves customers in over 18 states. Elevated is a premier provider of contractually based services for all major brands of elevator and escalator equipment. Elevated is expected to contribute approximately $220 million in annual revenue at an approximate 20% adjusted EBITDA margin.

Russ Becker, APi’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “Today we welcome our 600 new teammates to the APi family and begin our work leveraging the opportunities created by this acquisition. We are excited to collaborate with Elevated and its talented leadership team as we expand into the $10+ billion U.S. elevator and escalator services market. This acquisition further strengthens APi’s financial profile and represents a continuation of our focus on building a robust line of businesses that provide mandatorily required life safety services."

Becker continued, “We believe there is a long runway of opportunity for Elevated to grow organically and through acquisition. The strength of our balance sheet today and our track record executing complementary bolt-on M&A over the last 20 years makes APi the perfect owner to help Elevated accelerate its growth in the fragmented elevator and escalator services market. We expect the second half of 2024 to bring record profitability and a return to strong organic revenue growth. Our updated full year guidance for net revenues including Elevated represents reported revenue growth of approximately 7% to 11% and organic revenue growth of approximately 5% to 9% in the back half of year.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company uses the non-U.S. GAAP financial measure included in this press release and the additional financial information both in explaining its results to shareholders and the investment community and in its internal evaluation and management of its businesses. The Company’s management believes that this non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and the information it provides is useful to investors since this measure (a) permits investors to view the Company’s performance using the same tools that management uses to evaluate the Company’s past performance, reportable business segments and prospects for future performance, (b) permits investors to compare the Company with its peers,(c) determines certain elements of management’s incentive compensation and (d) provides consistent period-to-period comparisons of the results. Specifically:

  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is the measure of profitability used by management to manage its segments and, accordingly, in its segment reporting. The Company supplements the reporting of its consolidated financial information with certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as EBITDA excluding the impact of certain non-cash and other specifically identified items (“adjusted EBITDA”). Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues. The Company believes these non-U.S. GAAP measures provide meaningful information and help investors understand the Company’s financial results and assess its prospects for future performance. The Company uses EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its performance, both internally and as compared with its peers, because it excludes certain items that may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results. Consolidated EBITDA is calculated in a manner consistent with segment EBITDA, which is a measure of segment profitability.
  • The Company also presents organic changes in net revenues on a consolidated basis or segment specific basis to provide a more complete understanding of underlying revenue trends by providing net revenues on a consistent basis as it excludes the impacts of material acquisitions, completed divestitures, and changes in foreign currency from year-over-year comparisons on reported net revenues, calculated as the difference between the reported net revenues for the current period and reported net revenues for the current period converted at fixed foreign currency exchange rates (excluding material acquisitions and divestitures). The remainder is divided by prior year fixed currency net revenues, excluding the impacts of completed divestitures.

While the Company believes this non-U.S. GAAP measure is useful in evaluating the Company’s performance, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for or superior to the related financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, this non-U.S. GAAP financial measure may differ from similar measures presented by other companies.

The Company does not provide reconciliations of forward-looking non-U.S. GAAP adjusted EBITDA and growth in organic net revenues to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for acquisitions and divestitures, business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, one-time and other events such as impairment charges, transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, restructuring costs, amortization of intangible assets, and other charges reflected in the Company’s reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.
