PGT Reports 2015 Third Quarter Results

VENICE, Fla., Nov. 04, 2015 (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 third quarter and nine months ended October 3, 2015.

"Quarterly sales exceeded $100 million for the second time this year, as we generated sales of $100.7 million in the third quarter. Sales increased $23.3 million, or 30.2%, over our 2014 third quarter, due to a combination of organic growth and from CGI-branded products. Our core repair and remodeling and new construction markets continue to be strong, as single-family housing starts in Florida increased 22% in the third quarter of 2015 compared to last year, and the repair and remodeling market continues to show positive growth. Through nine months, new construction and repair and remodeling sales of our PGT-branded products grew 24.4% and 6.3%, respectively. We anticipate this demand to continue into our fourth quarter which, combined with CGI's fourth quarter sales, we estimate will result in consolidated sales of $88 million to $92 million. This represents a growth range of 4% to 9% over last year," said PGT's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger.

Financial highlights for the third quarter ended October 3, 2015, compared to the third quarter of last year, include:

             
Commenting on the third quarter, Brad West, PGT's Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Gross profit dollars of $29.4 million, increased $6.2 million, or 26.9%, compared to last year's third quarter. Gross margin, as adjusted, was 31.2%, representing an increase of 0.8% over prior year's third quarter. The increase in gross margin includes the impact of our previously announced price increase, lower aluminum costs, and the addition of CGI. However, the increase in gross margin was offset by higher employee and other costs due to the increase in sales."

Mr. West continued, "During the quarter, we incurred a total of $2.0 million relating to our ERP systems conversion, new product launch costs and the start-up of our laminated glass lines. We also saw adjusted EBITDA improve to $17.9 million, increasing 48.0%, over our 2014 third quarter, which was 17.7% of sales. We continued to leverage our selling, general and administrative expenses on higher sales which, as a percentage of sales, was 16.3%. We generated $11.7 million of cash from operations in our 2015 third quarter, which resulted in a $7.3 million increase in cash on hand during the quarter, to $54.8 million."

Financial highlights for the nine months ended October 3, 2015, compared to the same period last year, include:

 


Jeff Jackson, PGT's President and Chief Operating Officer, commented on the third quarter, stating, "We continued to see solid top-line growth in our primary markets, and that growth came from both an increase in sales of PGT branded products and the addition of CGI. However, we struggled to meet robust demand in our vinyl lines due to issues associated with glass processing through our new ERP system, as well as slower than anticipated ramp-up of our new PGT WinGuard and EnergyVue vinyl lines, resulting in an increase in our backlog of nearly $6 million. These issues also caused inefficiencies in direct labor, higher scrap rates, and increased overhead costs during the third quarter. We are confident that the most significant issues we experienced relating to our ERP system implementation are behind us, and recent improvements in both on-time delivery and weekly sales support this belief.  However, due to the nature of system issues, operational improvements will only gradually work their way to the bottom line, and gross margins in the near term will continue to be pressured."

Mr. Jackson concluded, "We continued to generate strong operating cash flows during the quarter, which further strengthened our already strong balance sheet. These positive factors have enabled us to execute on our corporate strategies for growth and adding shareholder value, including last week's announcement of our $20 million share buyback program. These continue to be exciting and rewarding times for our entire PGT family, and we are thankful as always for the hard work and dedication of all of our employees to our value proposition."

Forward-looking statements usually can be identified by the use of words such as "goal", "objective", "plan", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "project", "believe", "estimate", "may", "could", or other words of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements provide our current expectations or forecasts of future events, results, circumstances or aspirations. Our disclosures in this report contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We may also make forward-looking statements in our other documents filed or furnished with the Securities and Exchange Commission and in oral presentations. Forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and by their nature are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of our control. 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:
           


Any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf speak only as of the date they are made and we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect the impact of subsequent events or circumstances.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This Press Release and the financial schedules include financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We believe that presentation of non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net income, adjusted net income 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 consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted net income per share consists of GAAP net income 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.

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