- Revenue of $83.7 million, 23.0% increase over the prior year period
- Diluted EPS of $0.83, $0.31 increase per diluted share over the prior year period including certain non-operating items; Adjusted EPS of $0.55
- Completion of spin-off from Capital Southwest Corporation
- Successful acquisition of assets from Deacon Industries, Inc.
DALLAS, Nov. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSW Industrials (NASDAQ:CSWI), a diversified industrial growth company with well-established, scalable platforms and domain expertise across three segments: Industrial Products; Coatings, Sealants & Adhesives; and Specialty Chemicals, today reported results for the fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2015.
Sales during the quarter were $83.7 million, up 23.0%, compared to $68.1 million in the prior year period. Higher sales reflect strong customer demand in our Industrial Products Segment and incremental revenue ($15.5 million) from the recent acquisition of the assets of Strathmore Products, Inc. These benefits were partially offset by lower sales in Specialty Chemicals, resulting from lower volume in energy and mining related products.
Net income in the fiscal second quarter of 2016 was $13.0 million, or $0.83 per diluted share. This compares with prior period net income of $8.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share. In the current period, results include certain non-operating items, including an $8.0 million pre-tax gain related to freezing the Company’s defined benefit plan ($5.3 million after-tax or $0.34 per diluted share), $0.9 million of start-up and organizational costs incurred ($0.6 million after-tax, or $0.04 per diluted share) and $0.4 million of costs related to the acquisition of Strathmore ($0.3 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share).
Joseph B. Armes, CSW Industrials’ Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In our first earnings release as an independent company, we are pleased to report strong operating results highlighted by earnings growth, the integration of Strathmore and the acquisition of assets from Deacon Industries. We believe this momentum reflects the ability of our businesses to drive organic growth and margin from our well-established products, coupled with the early success of our acquisition strategy.”
Armes continued, “As we look forward to the balance of the year, we view the completion of the recent spin-off transaction as a catalyst to expand and enhance the business through the deployment of acquisition capital and the integration of our operations.”
CSW Industrials achieved several meaningful milestones during the quarter, including:
- The successful spin-off and listing on the NASDAQ stock exchange on September 30, 2015. Mr. Armes added, “We are pleased to begin this new phase at CSW Industrials and are grateful for the confidence investors have placed in our team. As a standalone company, we are appropriately positioned to create shareholder value through growth of CSWI proprietary products and through strategic acquisitions.”
- The acquisition of assets from Deacon Industries, Inc. effective October 1, 2015. Located in Washington, Pennsylvania, Deacon Industries is a leading manufacturer of high temperature sealants and injectable packings with applications in a variety of industrial end markets. Mr. Armes added, “This acquisition is a great complement to our current offerings and these newly acquired products will benefit significantly from our broad distribution network.”
Results of Operations
In the fiscal second quarter of 2016, CSW Industrials reported revenue of $83.7 million, an increase of 23.0% compared with the prior year level of $68.1 million. Higher sales reflect strong customer demand in our Industrial Products Segment and incremental revenue from the recent acquisition of the assets of Strathmore Products, Inc. These benefits were partially offset by lower sales in Specialty Chemicals, resulting from lower volume in energy and mining related products.
Second quarter gross profit of $40.8 million increased 23.1% over the prior year, reflecting the pension gain ($2.7 million) and the inclusion of Strathmore gross profit ($3.5 million) in the current period. Gross margin as a percentage of sales in the fiscal second quarter of 2016 was 48.8%, compared with 48.7% in the prior year period. Improvements due to the pension gain, increased absorption, changes in product mix and some materials costs savings were mostly offset by sales of lower margin Strathmore products. Adjusted for certain non-operating items, second-quarter gross profit was $38.1 million, or 45.6% of sales, compared to $33.2 million, or 48.7% of sales in the prior year.
Fiscal second quarter operating expenses were $20.1 million, or 24.0% of sales, compared to the prior year level of $21.4 million, or 31.5% of sales. Lower reported operating expenses as a percentage of sales was mostly attributable to the pension gain of $5.3 million, partially offset by start-up and organizational costs incurred of $0.9 million and Strathmore acquisition costs of $0.4 million. Adjusted for certain non-operating items, fiscal second quarter 2016 operating expenses were $24.1 million, or 28.8% of sales compared to $21.4 million, or 31.5% of sales in the prior year.
Following the successful spin-off from Capital Southwest Corporation, CSW Industrials presently expects to incur incremental recurring quarterly overhead expenses of $1.5 million, reflecting standalone public company costs.
Net income for the second quarter was $13.0 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, compared with net income of $8.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted for certain non-operating items, net income was $8.6 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared net income of $8.2 million in the prior year, or $0.52 per diluted share.
CSW Industrials’ income tax rate in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was 34.6%, compared with 34.5% in the prior year period.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures
This press release includes an analysis of adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating expenses and adjusted operating income, which are non-GAAP financial measures of performance. These non-GAAP measures should be used as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial measures computed in accordance with GAAP. The following is a reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure for the three-month period ended September 30, 2015:
(amounts in millions, except per share amounts)
|Pension plan curtailment gain||(2.7||)||(5.3||)||(8.0||)||(5.3||)||(0.34||)|
|Start-up and organizational costs||-||0.9||0.9||0.6||0.04|
|Strathmore acquisition costs||-||0.4||0.4||0.3||0.02|

|Pension plan curtailment gain||(3,179||)||(1,418||)||(3,423||)|
|Strathmore acquisition costs||-||429||-|
|Operating income, as adjusted||8,489||3,949||1,538|
We use adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating expenses and adjusted operating income, together with financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as revenue, income from operations, operating expense, operating income and net income, to assess our historical and prospective operating performance and to enhance our understanding of our core operating performance. We also believe these measures are useful for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-operating items.
