Reports Q4 revenue $1.67B, consensus $1.64B. Scott D. Farmer, Cintas' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are pleased to report another quarter of strong financial results. Operating income excluding G&K transaction and integration expenses increased 16.4% over last year's fourth quarter, resulting in an adjusted operating margin of 16.8% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to 15.8% last year. In addition, we continued to make substantial progress on two significant investments. The first is the acquisition of G&K. We have now closed nearly all operations necessary to eliminate redundancies, which is 63 operations to date. Also, all G&K operations have been converted to Cintas operating systems. The second is the implementation of an enterprise resource planning system. We converted 29 more operations to the new system in the fourth quarter, for a total of 108 so far, which is 34% of the total including G&K operations."
