PGT Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

VENICE, Fla., Aug. 1, 2012 (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 second quarter and first six months ended June 30, 2012.

"Thanks to the continuing efforts of our employees, I am pleased to report a second straight quarter of improving performance. We generated net income of $3.7 million and had our most successful quarter in terms of EBITDA as a percent of sales since 2006," said PGT's President and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger. "Our 2012 second quarter results include a sales increase of $1.3 million, or 2.9%, a substantial increase in our gross margin, and a 68% increase in EBITDA."

Mr. Hershberger continued, "Our second quarter WinGuard sales included growth in both the new construction and repair and remodeling markets over prior year. These areas of growth reflect improving market conditions, mainly in the Southwest region of Florida, and targeted efforts to increase share throughout Florida. We did experience lower sales of $0.6 million in non-impact products and $0.9 million in our Architectural Systems products."

Our financial highlights for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 include:

  • Net sales were $46.5 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 2.9%, compared to the second quarter of 2011;
     
  • Gross margin was 35.5%, an increase from the second quarter of 2011 gross margin of 19.9% (which, after adding back consolidation charges would have been 29.9%);
     
  • Net income was $3.7 million compared to a net loss of $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. The 2011 second quarter included consolidation charges totaling $1.4 million and additional expenses relating to manufacturing inefficiencies caused by the consolidation totaling $3.4 million;
     
  • Net income per diluted share was $0.07 compared to a net loss per diluted share of $0.09 in the second quarter of 2011; and
     
  • EBITDA was $7.8 million, compared to ($0.5) million in the second quarter of 2011. The 2011 EBITDA would have been $4.6 million, after adding back consolidation charges and manufacturing inefficiencies. (please see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP financial measures to their GAAP equivalents").

Our financial highlights for the six months ended June 30, 2012 include:

  • Net sales were $84.6 million, a decrease of $1.2 million, or 1.4%, compared to the first six months of 2011;
     
  • Gross margin was 33.6%, an increase from the first six months of 2011 gross margin of 20.1% (which, after adding back consolidation charges would have been 27.8%);
     
  • Net income was $3.0 million compared to a net loss of $10.8 million for the first six months of 2011. 2011 results included consolidation charges totaling $4.0 million and additional expenses relating to manufacturing inefficiencies caused by the consolidation totaling $3.4 million;
     
  • Net income per diluted share was $0.06 compared to a net loss per diluted share of $0.20 for the first six months of 2011; and
     
  • EBITDA was $11.1 million, compared to ($1.6) million for the first six months of 2011. The 2011 EBITDA would have been $6.2 million, after adding back consolidation charges and manufacturing inefficiencies (please see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP financial measures to their GAAP equivalents").
     
  • Annualized savings from our consolidation reached $6.1 million.

Commenting on the second quarter and six months ended, Jeff Jackson, PGT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "An increase in sales, coupled with better mix and continued focus on operational efficiencies from our consolidation, favorably impacted our gross margin percentage which was the highest since 2008. Our quarter ending cash balance was $15.7 million, and we prepaid $2.0 million of outstanding bank debt during the quarter, bringing our net debt to $27.8 million."

Mr. Jackson continued, "While we are pleased with the results of our second quarter and first six months, we believe additional opportunities exist to lower operational costs and leverage them with incremental sales."

Our actual results may differ materially from those set forth in our forward-looking statements. There is no assurance that any list of risks and uncertainties or risk factors is complete. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:

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 (loss), adjusted net income (loss) 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 (loss) consists of GAAP net income (loss) adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted net income (loss) per share consists of GAAP net income (loss) 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. Therefore, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, on a GAAP basis, may need to be considered to get a comprehensive view of our results.

EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) 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 (loss), adjusted net income (loss) 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 (loss), adjusted net income (loss) per share, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income (loss) are included in the financial schedules accompanying this release.

(1) The Company's non-GAAP financial measures were explained in its Form 8-K filed August 1, 2012.

(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, the effect of equity compensation plans is anti-dilutive.
