APi Group Provides Preliminary Year-End 2021 Results

Provides Initial Net Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance for 2022

Confirms Date of Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Earnings Release

APi Group Corporation (NYSE: APG) (“APG”, “APi” or the “Company”) today provided preliminary year-end 2021 results and initial net revenues and adjusted EBITDA guidance for 2022. The Company is participating in a fireside chat during Citi’s 2022 Global Industrials Virtual Conference today at 2:40 p.m. ET and at the Barclays Industrial Select Conference on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at 8:35 a.m. ET and may discuss these items while at the conferences. The Company also confirmed that it intends to release its results for the three months and full year ended December 31, 2021 before the market opens on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

Financial Update

On December 15, 2021, the Company issued a press release which stated that net revenues for 2021 were expected to exceed previous guidance and would be at least $3.8 billion and adjusted EBITDA would be approximately $405 million. While the Company will not be discussing actual results until its scheduled earnings release on March 1, 2022, the Company is expected to reiterate its strong performance and continued momentum despite certain inflationary pressures, supply chain disruptions and certain disruptions due to the rise of the omicron variation outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company is also expected to indicate at the investor conferences that its final results will likely be better than the guidance provided on December 15, 2021.

Russ Becker, APi’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “2021 was a watershed year in the development of APi. Despite the many macro headwinds, I am proud of our team and how we achieved our stated strategic goals amidst ongoing supply chain disruptions, inflationary pressures and COVID-19 impacts. Obviously, one of the most exciting developments during the year was the signing of the definitive agreement to acquire the Chubb fire and security business (“Chubb”) on July 26, 2021. With the closing of the transaction on January 3, 2022, we began 2022 as the world’s leading life safety services provider. We now begin our three-year journey to accelerate organic revenue growth, leverage our scale and drive margin expansion across our platform while swiftly deleveraging and integrating the Chubb team and portfolio into APi.

I am excited about the opportunities in front of us. As we look ahead to 2022, our record backlog continues to build and provides us with a solid foundation for growth. We believe that net revenues will range between $6.3 to $6.5 billion driven by growing our recurring service revenue. In line with our historical performance, we expect growth in net revenues on an organic basis at fixed currencies will be 6 – 7%. For 2022 adjusted EBITDA, we expect to deliver between $650 to $700 million which will largely be dependent on the speed in which we finalize and implement certain integration activities across our platform. We intend to maintain our relentless focus on disciplined project and customer selection, pricing opportunities, leveraging our spend, driving operational excellence and realizing synergies from the acquisition of Chubb as we drive towards our adjusted EBITDA margin goal of 13%+ by 2025. I look forward to providing more detail on our 2021 performance as well as our outlook for 2022 on our earnings call on March 1, 2022.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-U.S. GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company uses certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that are 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 these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures and the information they provide are useful to investors since these measures (a) permit 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) permit investors to compare the Company with its peers and (c) determine certain elements of management’s incentive compensation. 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”). 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’s management believes that adjusted EBITDA, which excludes business transformation and other expenses for the integration of acquired businesses, the impact and results of businesses classified as assets held-for-sale and businesses divested, and one-time and other events such as impairment charges, share-based compensation, transaction and other costs related to acquisitions, amortization of intangible assets and depreciation remeasurements associated with acquisitions, net COVID-19 relief, and certain tax benefits from the acquisition of APi Group, Inc. (the “APi Acquisition”), is useful because it provides investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the Company’s core ongoing operations.



The Company’s management believes that organic net revenues growth provides a consistent basis for year-over-year comparisons in net revenues as it excludes the impacts of non-bolt-on acquisitions, completed divestitures, and changes in foreign currency impacts. Foreign currency impacts represents the effect of foreign currency on current period reported net revenues and is calculated as the difference between current period net revenues by applying the prior year average monthly exchange rates to the current year local currency net revenues amounts (excluding acquisitions and divestitures).

While the Company believes these non-U.S. GAAP measures are 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, these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures 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 organic net revenues growth 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, amortization of intangible assets, net COVID-19 relief, and certain tax benefits from the APi Acquisition, and other charges reflected in the Company’s reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.
