G&K Services to Pay $24.8 Million as Part of Settlement Deal with the Pension Fund

G&K Services has entered into a settlement agreement with the Central States, Southeast and Southwest Areas Pension Fund to resolve matters related to the withdrawal liability from the company's partial and complete withdrawals from the Pension Fund. G&K Services had engaged in the partial and complete withdrawals from the Pension Funds during its 2012 and 2013 fiscal years. Under the agreement, the company will make a lump sum payment to the pension fund in the amount of $24.8 million and has agreed to dismiss the arbitration. In addition, the Pension Fund released all claims for collection of the withdrawal liability and related assessments, subject to the company's representations and warranties regarding contributions to the Pension Fund, related contribution base units and trades or businesses under common control of the company. The amount paid in connection with the settlement agreement is within previously established reserves for the withdrawal liability and related assessments. The company expects to fund the payment under the settlement agreement through use of existing resources, including its revolving credit facility.

Adjusted operating income was $28,101,000 compared to $24,971,000 a year ago. Adjusted net income was $16,498,000 or $0.81 per diluted share compared to $14,688,000 $0.73 per diluted share a year ago. This strong organic growth was partially offset by the negative impact of a lower exchange rate for the Canadian dollar, which reduced total revenue growth by 1.6%. For the nine months, the company's rental and direct sale revenue was $701,065,000 compared to $671,188,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations was $77,075,000 compared to $69,339,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $71,612,000 compared to $64,632,000 a year ago.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $80,866,000 compared to $42,542,000 a year ago. The increased operating cash flow was primarily due to higher net income, improved working capital management, and lower income tax payments. Capital expenditures was $40,022,000 compared to $23,172,000 a year ago, as the company continued investments in capacity expansion and information technology. Adjusted operating income was $83,575,000 compared to $73,847,000 a year ago. Adjusted net income was $49,819,000 or $2.45 per diluted share compared to $43,129,000 $2.14 per diluted share a year ago. The third quarter organic growth rate, which adjusts for the impact of currency exchange rate differences, acquisitions and divestitures, was 5.4%. Based on year to date results, the company now expects full year fiscal 2015 revenue in the range of $934 million to $939 million, narrowing its previous range of $930 million to $950 million. Organic revenue growth will continue to be partially offset by the impact of a lower exchange rate for the Canadian dollar, which the company expects will reduce full-year revenue growth by approximately 1.5 percent. The company also narrowed its guidance for full-year adjusted earnings, to a range of $3.24 to $3.30 per diluted share, compared to its previously announced range of $3.20 to $3.30 per share. This guidance excludes the impact of the previously mentioned $0.20 per share charge related to the company's withdrawal from MEPPs. The company now expects full year CapEx will come in slightly above previous forecast of $50 million. The company expects full year interest expense will increase slightly next year as the effective interest rate on new revolver will be slightly higher than the rate on the private placement notes that mature in June. And also, the company expects tax rate will increase to around 38% next year.
