"Our performance in the third quarter reflects weather-related disruptions and increased raw materials and logistics costs across our supply chain. We have announced a price increase effective January 1, 2018 to offset these higher costs and recover our margins. We are also on-track with our restructuring activities to reduce our cost structure," said President and Chief Executive Officer Gregory E. Poling.

"The completion of the Darex sale provides GCP with the balance sheet strength to execute on our growth strategies, including the pursuit of bolt-on acquisitions. Our recently announced acquisition of Ductilcrete, a technology leader in concrete flooring, demonstrates our ability to expand into value-added products and systems. Looking forward, we are seeing momentum in project activity and revenue growth in the fourth quarter.”

Third quarter 2017:

  • Net sales increased 7.2% primarily due to our acquisitions of Halex and Stirling Lloyd as well as growth in our base Specialty Building Materials segment, partially offset by a decline in Specialty Construction Chemicals
  • Gross margin of 37.9% decreased 340 basis points due to increases in raw material costs and higher logistics expenses
  • Adjusted EBIT* of $36.2 million declined 4.7% due to lower Adjusted Gross Profit
  • Net loss from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders was $18.1 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to net income from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders of $10.9 million for the prior-year quarter. The change was primarily due to a $36.7 million non-cash charge which was recognized upon the deconsolidation of our Venezuelan subsidiary.
  • Net income attributable to GCP shareholders was $659.2 million compared to $21.3 million in the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to the gain associated with the Darex Packaging Technologies segment divestiture.

Sale of Darex Packaging Technologies
On July 3, 2017, GCP completed the sale of Darex to Henkel for $1.06 billion in cash, subject to customary closing adjustments. GCP recognized a pre-tax gain on the sale of Darex of approximately $883.7 million during the third quarter of 2017, or $683.7 million after income taxes. Darex has been reclassified and reflected as "discontinued operations" on the Consolidated Statements of Operations for all periods presented.

GCP intends to use the proceeds from the sale of Darex to invest in new products and technologies, pursue bolt-on acquisitions and lower the cost of the Company's debt. During the third quarter of 2017, the Company used approximately $400 million to retire its Term Loan and repay the amounts outstanding on its Revolving Credit Facility. On October 31, 2017, GCP acquired Ductilcrete Technologies for $32 million.

Restructuring and Repositioning Expenses
On June 28, 2017, the Board of Directors approved a restructuring and repositioning plan. Upon completion of the plan, the Company expects to achieve a net annualized cost reduction of approximately $24 million to $28 million, an increase from the $22 million to $25 million estimate in the second quarter. The Company expects approximately $9 million to $13 million to benefit continuing operations, while $15 million relates to discontinued operations. Restructuring expenses from continuing operations were $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2017. Repositioning expenses related to the plan were $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2017, substantially all of which represent professional fees and employee-related costs.

Interest Expense
Interest expense was $14.5 million for the third quarter of 2017 compared with $17.6 million for the prior-year quarter. The decrease reflects the repayment and extinguishment of the Company's Term Loan.

Income Taxes
The income tax benefit attributable to continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $14.5 million, compared with income tax expense attributable to continuing operations of $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, representing effective tax rates of 44.6% and 18.4%, respectively. The difference in the effective tax rate for the three-month period compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily due to the recording of a tax benefit related to the change in the Company’s assertion that it is indefinitely reinvested in Mexico and Venezuela due to the Darex transaction.

Analysis of Operations

The Company has set forth in the table below GCP's key operating statistics with percentage changes for the third quarter and nine months compared with the corresponding prior-year periods. In the table, the Company presents financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as certain non-GAAP financial measures, which it describes below in further detail. GCP believes that the non-GAAP financial information supplements its discussions about the performance of its businesses, improves quarter-to-quarter comparability and provides insight to the information that management uses to evaluate the performance of its businesses. Management uses non-GAAP measures in financial and operational decision-making processes, for internal reporting, and as part of its forecasting and budgeting processes, as these measures provide additional transparency to GCP's core operations.

In the table, the Company has provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered substitutes for financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and the financial results that the Company calculates and presents in the table in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as the corresponding reconciliations from those results, should be carefully evaluated.

Constant currency means current period revenue in local currency translated using prior period exchange rates. GCP uses constant currency in assessing trends in sales excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

Adjusted EBIT (a non-GAAP financial measure) means net income from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders adjusted for interest income; interest expense and related financing costs; income taxes; currency and other financial losses in Venezuela; restructuring and repositioning expenses and asset impairments; pension costs other than service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets, and amortization of prior service costs/credits; gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines and certain other investments; third-party and other acquisition-related costs; amortization of acquired inventory fair value adjustment; tax indemnification adjustments; and certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends, such as legal settlements. GCP uses Adjusted EBIT to assess and measure its operating performance and in determining performance-based compensation. GCP uses Adjusted EBIT as a performance measure because it provides improved quarter-to-quarter comparability for management's decision-making and compensation purposes and because it allows management to measure the ongoing earnings results of the Company's strategic and operating decisions.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) means Adjusted EBIT adjusted for depreciation and amortization. GCP uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure in making significant business decisions.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share (a non-GAAP financial measure) means earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations on a diluted basis adjusted for costs related to restructuring and repositioning expenses and asset impairments; pension costs other than service and interest costs, expected return on plan assets, and amortization of prior service costs/credits; gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines and certain other investments; third-party and other acquisition-related costs; amortization of acquired inventory fair value adjustment; tax indemnification adjustments, other financing costs associated with the modification or extinguishment of debt; certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends (such as legal settlements); and certain discrete tax items. GCP uses Adjusted EPS as a performance measure to review its diluted earnings per share results on a consistent basis.

Adjusted Gross Profit (a non-GAAP financial measure) means gross profit adjusted for pension-related costs included in cost of goods sold; loss in Venezuela included in cost of goods sold; and amortization of acquired inventory fair value adjustment. Adjusted Gross Margin means Adjusted Gross Profit divided by net sales. Management uses this performance measure to understand trends and changes and to make business decisions regarding core operations.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow (a non-GAAP financial measure) means net cash provided by or used for operating activities from continuing operations, minus capital expenditures, plus cash paid for restructuring, repositioning and third-party and other acquisition-related costs; cash taxes related to restructuring, repositioning and third-party and other acquisition-related costs; capital expenditures related to repositioning; accelerated payments under defined benefit pension arrangements; and expenditures for legacy items. GCP uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow as a liquidity measure to evaluate its ability to generate cash to support its ongoing business operations, to invest in its businesses, to provide a return of capital to shareholders and to determine payments of performance-based compensation.

Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Gross Margin, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow do not purport to represent income measures as defined under U.S. GAAP. These measures are provided to improve the quarter-to-quarter comparability and peer-to-peer comparability of GCP's financial results and to ensure that investors understand the information GCP uses to evaluate the performance of its businesses.

Adjusted EBIT has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes costs related to income and expenses from restructuring and repositioning activities, which historically has been a material component of our net income. Adjusted EBITDA also has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes the impact of depreciation and amortization expense. GCP's business is substantially dependent on the successful deployment of capital, and depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of its costs. GCP compensates for the limitations of these measurements by using these indicators together with net income as measured under GAAP to present a complete analysis of its results of operations. Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA should be evaluated together with net income measured under GAAP for a complete understanding of GCP's results of operations.

The Company does not provide GAAP earnings on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to estimate with reasonable certainty unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.
