Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE:RSG) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial ConditionItem 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On July27, 2017, Republic Services, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release containing information about the Company’s financial results for the three and six months ended June30, 2017. A copy of this press release, which also contains information about the Company’s full-year 2017 guidance, is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
Full-Year 2017 EPS Guidance
The Company raised its full-year diluted earnings per share guidance and expects it to be in a range of $2.32 to $2.35 and adjusted diluted earnings per share to be in a range of $2.36 to $2.39. Adjusted diluted earnings per share excludes the impact of restructuring charges, withdrawal costs – multiemployer pension funds, gain/(loss) on disposition of assets and impairments, net, and incremental contract startup costs – large municipal contract.
We believe that presenting adjusted diluted earnings per share provides an understanding of operational activities before the financial impact of certain items. We use this measure, and believe investors will find it helpful, in understanding the ongoing performance of our operations separate from items that have a disproportionate impact on our results for a particular period. We have incurred comparable charges in prior periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. Although our business regularly incurs startup costs under municipal contracts, we have specifically identified startup costs with respect to an individual municipal contract (and do not adjust for other startup costs under other contracts in 2017). We do this because we believe the costs involved with this particular municipal contract are of an unusual nature for the time period in which they are incurred. Our definition of adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
