Q3 revenues increased 47.9% year-over-year to C$546.8 million, including $114.6 million in revenues earned by acquired companies.
Meanwhile, earnings per share were C$0.25 in Q3 2022, up from C$0.20 in Q3 2021. Adjusted earnings per share amounted to C$0.52, up from C$0.30 in the prior-year quarter.

ATS’ CEO Andrew Hider said, “The third quarter of fiscal 2022 featured record Order Bookings, Order Backlog, and revenues driven by both organic growth and solid contributions from our acquisitions.
“The deployment of the ABM and effective countermeasures put in place to protect our people and our operations resulted in good results for customers and shareholders despite the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing supply chain disruptions. Our record Order Backlog provides good revenue visibility, and our strong balance sheet enables us to continue supporting our growth strategies.”
Mr. Hider added that ATS made three recent acquisitions to broaden the company’s portfolio in key areas of life sciences, including aseptic fill-finish and pharmaceutical development.
The integrations of these businesses, as well as CFT, BioDot, and NCC, are progressing according to plan as the company focuses on capturing all of the multi-year organic growth and cost synergy opportunities originally identified.
