PGT Provides Certain Financial Information for CGI Windows and Doors and Confirms Conference Call

VENICE, Fla., Oct. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (Nasdaq:PGTI), the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, provides certain financial highlights from the historical results of CGI Windows and Doors Holdings, Inc (CGI), in connection with a merger completed on September 22, 2014.

"As previously disclosed on September 22, 2014, we completed the acquisition of CGI. The transaction, valued at approximately $111 million, is consistent with PGT's plan to grow strategically while contributing to earnings growth through targeted acquisitions of complementary specialty products. The historical results of CGI show solid sales growth and consistent high margins," said PGT's President and Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Jackson.

Mr. Jackson continued, "Trailing twelve months sales as of June 30, 2014, were $38.1 million, which represented an increase of approximately 44 percent, and net income for the same period was $2.8 million."

CGI financial highlights for the historical periods include:

  • Net sales of $32.8 million in 2013, an increase of $8.3 million, or 34% over 2012;
  • Net Income of $1.5 million in 2013, compared to net loss of $480 thousand in 2012;
  • Net sales of $19.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, an increase of $5.3 million, or 38% over the same period in 2013; and
  • Net Income of $1.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to net loss of $54 thousand for the same period in 2013.

Commenting on the acquisition, Brad West, PGT's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "We financed this acquisition with a $200 million term loan and an undrawn $35 million revolving facility. The term loan paid off existing indebtedness and third party fee in connection with the acquisition. It bears interest at LIBOR plus 425 basis points, with a 100 basis point floor, with minimal required amortization. In addition to the strong historical results, many opportunities exist to gain efficiencies in manufacturing and sales due to the similarities in end customers and markets served. Synergies of greatest import will come from purchasing power on materials such as aluminum, savings in glass costs as our new glass plant comes online, and reduction in SG&A."
