PGT Reports 2010 Fourth Quarter Results

VENICE, Fla., Feb. 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (Nasdaq:PGTI), the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, announces financial results for the fourth quarter ended January 1, 2011. In the fourth quarter:

Rod Hershberger, President and Chief Executive Officer of PGT, said, "Sales increased 8.4% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the same quarter a year ago due mainly to increased sales in our core market, Florida, where sales were up 14.4%. The main drivers for this increase came from increases in our vinyl product categories, in both impact and non-impact products. Housing starts in Florida decreased 2.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, driven by a decrease in single family starts. However, multi-family starts were up slightly from a year ago."

Mr. Hershberger continued, "We are currently on schedule to complete our plant consolidation by the end of the second quarter of 2011. In addition, we continue to move forward with new product offerings and line expansions, including our recently launched vinyl sliding glass door which was well received at the International Builders' Show."

Jeff Jackson, PGT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "WinGuard sales increased $1.7 million due in part to an increase in vinyl WinGuard sales in Florida, where many customers took advantage of available tax credits. Vinyl non-impact sales also continued to expand, up $2.4 million, including $1.1 million in sales of the new replacement window designed for the Florida market. This shift in mix toward lower margin non-impact products offset contribution margin earned on additional sales. Additionally, during the fourth quarter of 2010, we recorded an additional $1.0 million in bonus, $0.5 million in increased salaries resulting from returning employees to their 2009 base, $0.3 million in health care cost increases, and a $0.6 million increase in non-cash stock compensation expense."

Mr. Jackson continued, "During the quarter, we generated $3.3 million in cash from operations. Our cash balance decreased $3.2 million during the quarter to $22.0 million, primarily due to the repayment of $3.0 million in debt and the purchase of the intellectual property assets of Hurricane Window and Door Technologies of Fort Myers, Florida.  Our net debt decreased to $28.0 million and our corresponding leverage ratio is 1.7X."
