The fourth quarter and full year results highlight the continuing resilience of our contract-based business, and reflect the positive trends underlying our robust acquisition strategy, and the benefits of our investments in being the best-in-class maintenance services company.. Andrew Masterman, President and CEO of BrightView, said this quarter, we achieved strong cash generation and liquidity, underpinned by our continued focus on working capital and reducing capital expenditures.. . Our services and the results of our operations continue to benefit from recruitment as a primary service. Our team continues to do an amazing job in responding to the COVID-19 crisis by prioritizing health and safety, focusing on our client relationships, and by delivering robust results in a challenging operating environment..

Despite the additional flexibility and delays in the project, the impacts of COVID-19 have so far been modest due to our flexible revenue base from contracts, and our profits have benefited from cost management measures.. Masterman said cash generation remains good, margins are strong, and our capex requirements are modest, and we expect our M&A pipeline to continue to be a reliable and sustainable source of revenue growth. . We expect the effects of COVID-19 to continue to be felt over the next few quarters as conditions remain unstable. Nevertheless, we believe we are in a strong position to return to positive growth in Fiscal Year 2021, with continued strong cash generation and strong EBITDA results.. We believe that the digital investment, sales, training and other investments we make to enhance our business will lead to better long-term performance in its class..

In addition, information that is not currently available to the company may have a potential, unpredictable and potentially significant impact on the future financial results of GAAP..

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, free cash flow, and adjusted earnings per share are not GAAP standards. Please refer to Non-GAAP Financial Procedures and reconcile GAAP with the Non-GAAP Financial Measures Sections for more information.

During the quarter, we made a record $ 77. 4 million in free cash flow, for a total of $ 197. John Feynan, BrightView’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, said 2 million for the full fiscal year, a record for the company. . We continue to maintain a disciplined fiscal policy while remaining focused intensively on cumulative transactions and debt repayment. Our business and industry fundamentals remain strong and our cash generation, along with our modest capital needs, will continue to drive equity..
