ECOL earnings call for the period ending December 31, 2018.
The environmental services leader achieved growth in both business segments in the first three months of the year.
In the fourth quarter, the environmental services company's year-over-year revenue and adjusted EPS grew in the double and triple digits, respectively.
Business conditions continue to improve, but the environmental services company's third-quarter results took a hit from two hurricanes, a charge related to a property tax assessment, and some event business that was pushed back.
Revenue and adjusted EPS edged up 3% and 2.7%, respectively, from the year-ago period.
The year-over-year comparisons were made more challenging due to 2016's unusually strong opening, but the company remains on the right track.
Year-over-year revenue and earnings per share declined, but revenue in the key base business increased 3%.
The silver lining in the earnings release is that the environmental services company has seen an uptick in the industrial sector so far in the first quarter of 2017.
The environmental services leader enjoyed a successful year despite industry headwinds. The year ahead has its own set of challenges.
