BINGO Industries Limited, solid result in a challenging market

BINGO Industries Limited (ASX: BIN)

Bingo Industries Limited (ASX: BIN) on 22 February 2021 reported its financial results for 1HFY21.

BIN has delivered a solid result in a challenging operating environment. The strong result was driven by its five-year strategy of weighting the business towards defensive infrastructure assets. 85% of the Group’s earnings for the period came from its Post-Collections operations. BIN expects to benefit from the strong infrastructure pipelines in NSW and VIC, before a recovery in the residential and non-residential markets over the medium term. C&I volumes are also set to increase with reduced restrictions and the wider workforce moving back to offices in the short term.

Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue was down 3.1% against the PCP to $241.1 million.
  • Collections revenue decreased by 19.3% to $98.5 million, largely due to the challenging COVID-19 environment across both B&D and C&I waste streams.
  • Collections Underlying EBITDA was $15.3 million, down 38.1% against the PCP of $24.7 million. Collections EBITDA margin decreased by 480 basis points to 15.5% driven by a decline in B&D cube rates together with reduced C&I activity in NSW and VIC, as a result of challenging market conditions.
  • Post-Collections revenue increased by 5.0% from $162.7 million to $170.9 million, driven by increased volumes in line with BINGO’s network capacity uplift and focus on attracting volumes in a contracting market.
  • Post-Collections Underlying EBITDA was down by 0.2% from $55.6 million to $55.5 million. Underlying EBITDA margin contracted by 170 basis points to 32.5%, underpinned by reduced pricing across landfill and recycling facilities.
