Quoting Management: “The strength of our core collection, transfer and disposal operations, combined with 19 strategic “tuck-in” acquisitions, softened the impact of a 1.6% decline in revenues from lower recycled commodity prices in 2012. In 2013, we are well positioned for growth with a strengthened network of integrated assets and the market-focused strategies to continue to execute our operating model and drive value on these assets. Acquisitions we completed in 2012 generate annualized revenues of approximately $200 million, and the contribution to 2013 revenue growth is expected to be approximately $138 million. Revenues for 2013 will also realize the benefits of internal infrastructure projects and new municipal contract wins. All of these contributions together will more than offset the impact of municipal contracts that concluded in the third and fourth quarters of 2012 and the scheduled closure of our Calgary landfill in mid-2013,” said Joseph Quarin, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Progressive Waste Solutions Ltd. “We remain focused on the disciplined execution of our local market strategies and deployment of free cash flow(NYSE:B) to improve our overall return on invested capital. We are excited about the opportunities we have to create value in 2013 and beyond.”
