Revenue climbed 11% $1.17 billion from $1.06 billion in the same quarter of last year but missed Street’s forecast for $1.18 billion. Revenue- rose 2.7% at its janitorial segment, climbed 8.4% at facility solutions segment, and increased 3% at its security segment. Revenue jumped 8.4% at its buildings and energy solutions division, driven by acquisitions.
