PGT Reports 2014 Third Quarter Results

VENICE, Fla., Oct. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (Nasdaq:PGTI), the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, announces financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended September 27, 2014.

"This is an exciting time for PGT. During the past quarter we completed the acquisition of CGI Windows and Doors, Inc., adding another market leading brand to our portfolio, a manufacturing facility in Miami, and approximately 200 employees to the PGT family. We also began production in our new glass facility, refinanced our debt, and delivered double digit growth, with sales up 19.2%, or $12.5 million over the third quarter of 2013," commented PGT's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger.

Financial highlights for the third quarter ended September 27, 2014, include CGI results for the five days from September 23, 2014 to September 27, 2014, and are compared to the same period last year. These highlights, which are adjusted for the costs related to the acquisition of CGI, debt refinancing, and the costs related to the start up of our new glass facility, include:

  • Net sales of $77.3 million, an increase of $12.5 million, or 19.2%;
  • Gross margin, adjusted for costs related to the start up of our new glass facility, increased $2.6 million or 12.4%, to $23.5 million;
  • Selling, general and administrative costs, adjusted for costs related to the acquisition, of $12.8 million, or 16.5% of sales, compared to $13.4 million, or 20.7% of sales;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $12.1 million compared to $10.2 million;
  • Adjusted net income of $6.2 million compared to $6.4 million (reflecting tax expense of $3.7 million in 2014, compared to $5 thousand in 2013);
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share of $0.12 compared to $0.13;
  • CGI Net Sales and EBITDA included above are $552 thousand and $123 thousand (or 22.3% of sales), respectively.

"Our growth continues to be led by new construction, which grew to represent 39% of our sales. During the quarter, impact sales grew 19% over prior year and represented 78% of total sales. Sales into new construction markets increased 47.2%, and sales into repair and remodel markets increased 5.2%," stated PGT's President and Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Jackson.

Mr. Jackson continued, "In the fourth quarter, we anticipate our year over year growth to continue, both organically and through the contribution of CGI. Sales from PGT products will range between $70 and $72 million, which represents an increase of 13% to 16% over prior year sales of $62.0 million. CGI sales will range between $11 and $12 million. This will result in consolidated sales between $81 and $84 million."

Financial highlights for the nine months ended September 27, 2014, compared to the same period last year, include adjustments related to the acquisition of CGI, debt refinancing, and costs related to the start up of our new glass facility. Additionally, 2013 financial highlights include adjustments related to the secondary offering, gain on the sale of the Salisbury facility and discrete tax items. Our nine month financial highlights include:

  • Net sales of $221.7 million, an increase of $44.4 million, or 25.0%;
  • Gross margin, adjusted for costs related to the start up of our new glass facility increased, $9.9 million or 16.7%, to $69.4 million;
  • Selling, general and administrative costs, adjusted for costs related to the acquisition, of $39.1 million, or 17.6% of sales, compared to $39.2 million, or 22.1% of sales;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $34.2 million compared to $28.3 million;
  • Adjusted net income remained flat at $17.4 million (reflecting tax expense of $10.4 million in 2014, compared to $5 thousand in 2013);
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share of $0.35 compared to $0.33.

Commenting on the third quarter and nine months ended September 27, 2014, Brad West, PGT's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our sales growth led to a 12.4% increase in gross margin over prior year. As a percent of sales, however, adjusted gross margin decreased 1.9%, largely as a result of increased material costs due to the costs of purchasing finished glass units, as well as an increase in the cost of aluminum, and of a shift in mix toward new constructions sales. However, we have expanded our current glass fabrication capabilities with the recent completion of our new glass facility, which should allow us to improve margins by approximately 2% in 2015."

Mr. West continued, "During the quarter, we incurred $2.8 million in charges related to our debt refinancing, and $1.5 million in costs in connection with the acquisition. Cash flow generated from operations was $8.8 million during the quarter, and we continue to effectively leverage our selling, general and administrative expenses which decreased after adjustments to 16.5% of sales, compared to 20.7% in the third quarter of 2013 due to strong leverage in this category."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This Press Release and the financial schedules include financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We believe that presentation of non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provides investors and analysts with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance compared to past performance. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a better baseline for assessing our future earnings potential. The non-GAAP measures included in this release are provided to give investors access to types of measures that we use in analyzing our results.

Adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted net income per share consists of GAAP net income per share adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe these measures enable investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to the past performance and provide a better baseline for assessing the company's future earnings potential. However, these measures do not provide a complete picture of our operations.

EBITDA consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included on the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted EBITDA consists of EBITDA adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe that EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors and analysts about the company's performance because they eliminate the effects of period to period changes in taxes, costs associated with capital investments and interest expense. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA do not give effect to the cash the company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes and thus do not reflect the funds generated from operations or actually available for capital investments.

Our calculations of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to calculations performed by other companies and reported as similarly titled measures. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP measures. Schedules that reconcile adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income are included in the financial schedules accompanying this release.
