BLUE BELL, Pa. – BrightView recently reported unaudited results for the third quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“Our quarterly results highlight the resiliency of our contract-based business and reflect the positive underlying trends of our strong-on-strong acquisition strategy, cash generation and liquidity, and our on-going focus on working capital and reducing capital expenditures,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President and CEO. “Despite ancillary softness and project delays, COVID-19 impacts to date have been modest due to our resilient contract revenue base and our earnings have benefited from cost management actions. Cash generation remains exceptional, margins strong, our capex requirements are modest, and we expect our M&A pipeline to continue to be a reliable and sustainable source of revenue growth,” Masterman said.

Masterman added that BrightView expects COVID-19 impacts to be felt "over the next few quarters as conditions remain fluid."
