PGT Reports 2011 Second Quarter Results

VENICE, Fla., Aug. 3, 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 second quarter ended July 2, 2011. In our second quarter:

"Sales decreased 7.8% compared to prior year in part as a result of temporary capacity constraints and inefficiencies related to our plant consolidation. We experienced lower sales in our Aluminum WinGuard product line, with sales down $1.4 million or 6% compared to prior year. Sales also decreased within our Architectural Systems product lines, by $1.6 million as a result of the increased softness of the commercial market" said Rod Hershberger, PGT's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Housing starts in Florida decreased 5% compared to the second quarter of 2010, driven mainly by an 8% decrease in single family starts."

Mr. Hershberger continued, "All of our operating lines from North Carolina are now in place and operating in Florida, where we have hired over 350 new positions. Our main focus over the past and next quarter is getting these new employees fully trained to be able to execute at the levels that PGT is known for in the marketplace, and we expect substantially all consolidation related inefficiencies to be driven from our operations by the end of the third quarter." 

Commenting further on the second quarter of 2011, Jeff Jackson, PGT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Vinyl sales were down 8% when compared to prior year. This includes a $1.7 million decline in non-impact vinyl sales due to both temporary capacity constraints as well as our decision to reduce our efforts related to sales in non-coastal areas. Vinyl impact sales were up $0.7 million due to a $1.1 million increase in sales of our PremierVue high end line which continues to gain traction. This was offset by a $0.4 million decrease in sales of Vinyl WinGuard due to the constraints created during the consolidation. These constraints will be alleviated in the coming quarter as our expanded Florida operations become more efficient. Adjusted EBITDA during the quarter  was $4.6 million, or 10.3% of sales, compared to prior year's second quarter EBITDA of $5.3 million, or 10.7% of sales. This decline was due mainly to lost margin from lower sales, somewhat offset by lower spending in overhead and selling, general and administrative categories." 

Mr. Jackson continued, "In June, we completed the refinancing of our debt and in doing so created more favorable terms including a lower interest rate and a due date extension to 2016. During the quarter, we used $3.2 million of cash in operations. Our cash balance decreased $7.8 million during the quarter to $7.7 million, primarily due to $5.9 million of cash used for plant consolidation expenses, a debt principal payment in the amount of $2.0 million and refinancing fees of $2.4 million. Our net debt was $40.3 million and our corresponding leverage ratio was 2.8X at the end of the second quarter of 2011."

(1) The Company's non-GAAP financial measures were explained in its Form 8-K filed August 3, 2011.
(2) Represents charges related to consolidation actions taken in 2011. These charges relate primarily to employee separation costs and move related expenses. Of the $1.4 million consolidation charge in three months ended July 2, 2011, $1.2 million is included in costs of goods sold and $0.2 million is included in selling, general and administrative expenses. Of the $4.0 million in consolidation charges in the six months ended July 2, 2011, $3.3 million is included in cost of goods sold and $0.7 million is included in selling, general and administrative expenses. 
(3) Represents temporary excess labor and scrap expense incurred as a result of the consolidation actions taken in 2011. The amounts were determined by comparing the second quarter manufacturing results with normalized pre-consolidation quarter results. These charges are included in cost of goods sold for the three and six months ended July 2, 2011.
(4) Represents the write off of the remaining unamortized fees associated with our previous financing agreement. These charges are included in other expense for the three and six months ended July 2, 2011.
(5) Due to the actual net losses in the second quarter of 2011, and the first six months of 2011 and 2010, the effect of equity compensation plans is anti-dilutive.
