3-Year Outlook
First Day Turnover


Our industry is highly fragmented with no single market leader. By focusing on environmental solutions, we believe we are uniquely positioned to become a leading platform in the industry. We provide a diverse range of environmental services to our private and public sector clients across the life cycle of their needs—whether they are launching new projects, maintaining operations, decommissioning operations, rehabilitating assets, managing the impacts of climate change or responding to unexpected environmental disruption. Our integrated platform has been a catalyst for our organic growth and we have built on this platform through strategic acquisitions.

Innovation is core to our strategy. The world’s environmental challenges continue to grow in number, scope and complexity, and mounting public pressure and regulatory changes continue to drive demand for better information and solutions. We focus on innovation in order to improve the quality of information we can provide to clients (such as identifying variations of PFAS in water) and provide better solutions to their environmental needs (such as the efficient removal of PFAS from contaminated water). We intend to continue innovating by investing in research, development and technology (directly and through strategic partnerships) to develop better solutions for our clients. We believe these investments—together with our investments in geographic expansion,  sales and marketing initiatives, environmental service offerings and strategic acquisitions—will continue to distinguish us in the marketplace.

Our revenue and earnings are highly resilient. We are not dependent upon any single service, product, political approach or regulatory framework. We also serve a diverse set of more than 4,500 clients across a wide variety of end markets and geographies within the private and public sectors. Funding for our services is typically non-discretionary given regulatory drivers and public health concerns. As a result, our business is positioned to be less susceptible to political and economic cycles.

Our financial success is driven by both strong organic and acquisition-driven growth. Our organic revenue growth has averaged 17% per year since 2016 when combining our results with those of our recent and substantial acquisition of CTEH since 2016. If we exclude CTEH’s revenues generated from major environmental events resulting in one or more projects contributing more than $4.0 million of revenue in any year, which at times has represented a significant percentage of CTEH’s revenue, our combined annual organic growth rate since 2016 is approximately 9%.

Montrose alone, without CTEH, has averaged 7% organic revenue growth per year since 2016. Our organic revenue growth demonstrates our growing reputation and ability to capture market share in a large and growing industry. See the section entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations-Key Factors that Affect our Business and Results-Organic Growth.” In addition, our acquisitions of selected environmental services firms have expanded our geographic reach and service offerings.
