Calgary, AB, August 1, 2019 - Tervita Corporation (“Tervita” or the “Company”) (TSX: TEV) announced today the results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019. All financial figures are in millions of Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

“Our performance to date in 2019 demonstrates the stability and resiliency of our production-based energy business, the strength of our expanded network, and a continued focus on cost efficiencies,” said John Cooper, President and CEO. “Our results in Q2 2019 were positively impacted by realized cost synergies from the Newalta transaction, which have progressed ahead of our expectations.  With these synergies achieved, we are turning our attention to additional opportunities to leverage our expanded infrastructure, strengthen operating efficiencies and enhance our customer offerings.

“We remain on track to deliver double-digit growth in 2019, supported by expected normal seasonal improvements in our business, and a full-year contribution from synergies which will drive higher results in the second half of 2019.  We are excited about the growth initiatives underway that are focused on providing solutions  in the Montney and Duvernay regions.  In addition,  we continue to see customer demand that supports a further $200 - $300 million pipeline of organic growth capital projects that we expect will provide attractive returns and generate strong free cash flow."  Full news release
