Euramax logo

NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euramax Holdings, Inc., a leading international producer of metal and vinyl products sold to the residential repair and remodel, commercial construction and recreational vehicle (RV) markets primarily in North America and Europe, today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2013. Net sales, operating income, and adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 were $227.8 million, $8.7 million, and $20.0 million, respectively. Net sales, operating income, and adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2013 were $630.2 million, $11.1 million, and $46.1 million, respectively.

President and CEO Mitchell B. Lewis commented, "Our operating performance for the third quarter of 2013 represents consecutive quarters of marked improvements in net sales, operating income and adjusted EBITDA over prior year comparable periods. Operating results in our U.S. segments benefited from improved weather conditions compared to the severe drought experienced in 2012 and from continued improvements in the North America repair and remodel sector. We also experienced modest improvements in our U.S. Commercial segment due to increases in architectural projects and higher demand from OEM's in the transportation market. Demand in our European segments continues to be impacted by end market challenges in Europe. However, successful business development initiatives in emerging markets and operational initiatives to streamline operations have partially offset the impact of lower end market demand."

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Summary

  • Net sales increased $8.6 million, or 3.9%, to $227.8 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $219.2 million in the third quarter of 2012. Net sales in the U.S. Residential Products Segment increased due to higher demand for products in both the home center and distributor markets. Sales of these products benefited from more favorable weather conditions in the third quarter compared to the severe drought conditions experienced in the prior year quarter. Higher demand from contractors for our vinyl window and patio offerings continued in the third quarter of 2013 driven by broader improvements in the residential repair and remodel sector. Increases in net sales were offset by lower demand in the European Roll Coated Aluminum segment for specialty coated coil and panels used in architectural and industrial projects in Western Europe. Demand in these markets has been negatively impacted by continuing economic uncertainty and reduced consumer confidence. These net sales declines in Europe were partially offset by ongoing business development initiatives in emerging markets. The strengthening of the euro and British pound sterling against the U.S. dollar resulted in an approximate $1.9 million increase in net sales during the quarter.
  • Income from operations increased $2.1 million to $8.7 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $6.6 million for the third quarter of 2012. Income from operations increased primarily as a result of higher demand in the U.S. Residential and Commercial Products segments, partially offset by lower net sales volumes in our European Roll Coated Aluminum segment. Income from operations in the third quarter of 2013 was also negatively impacted by non-recurring other operating charges totaling $1.5 million, compared to $0.8 million recorded in the third quarter of 2012. Other operating charges in the third quarter of 2013 were primarily related to restructuring initiatives in our European operating segments.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a significant operating measure used by the Company to measure its operating performance and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA was $20.0 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $17.0 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $3.0 million, or 17.6%.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including but not limited to statements related to plans for future business development activities, anticipated costs of revenues, product mix, research and development and selling, general and administrative activities, and liquidity and capital needs and resources. When used in this report, the words "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "estimate," and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which only speak as of the date of this press release. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

GAAP Versus Non-GAAP Presentation

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA in this press release as additional information regarding the Company's operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss plus (i) provision (benefit) for income taxes, (ii) interest expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude the effects of certain income and expense items that management believes make it more difficult to assess the Company's actual operating performance. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA is consistent with the calculation of Consolidated Cash Flow in the Indenture governing the Notes, excluding certain pro forma items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., and should not be considered an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity.

The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is helpful to investors in highlighting trends because Adjusted EBITDA excludes the results of certain decisions of operating management that can differ significantly from company to company depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which companies operate and capital investments. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone. The Company also believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Investors use Adjusted EBITDA, among other things, to assess the Company's period-to-period operating performance and to gain insight into the manner in which management analyzes operating performance.

A reconciliation of the Company's Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is included in the supplemental information attached to this release.
