PGT Reports 2016 First Quarter Results

First quarter net sales a record $100.2 million

VENICE, Fla., May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (NASDAQ:PGTI), the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of impact-resistant windows and doors, announced financial results for its first quarter ended April 2, 2016.

"We achieved a record first quarter sales of $100.2 million. This is a significant accomplishment given the tough comparison to the prior year period, which benefitted from approximately a $6 million revenue lift in advance of a price increase. While there was some short term softness in the market, our WinDoor acquisition provided $4.1 million in sales which helped deliver our first quarter growth. In addition, we remain confident in the long-term strength of our core Florida market due to several key indicators such as; increased order volume in both March and April, continued high level of quoting activity and, more importantly, the underlying demand drivers of population expansion, low interest rates and tight inventory," said PGT's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger.

"We are actively integrating WinDoor, our recently-acquired manufacturer of high-performance doors and windows in Orlando, Florida, and its nearly 200 employees into the PGT family," Mr. Hershberger continued. "We look forward to leveraging WinDoor's extensive product line, attractive distribution channels and high-end production capacity to continue growing our business over time."

Selected First Quarter 2016 Financial Results Versus the Prior Year Period

With the acquisition of WinDoor, the Company refinanced its credit agreement into a larger term loan and revolving credit facility. A charge of $3.4 million in non-cash debt extinguishment costs and $0.9 million of transaction-related costs was recorded in the first quarter of 2016. After adjusting for these costs, we reported adjusted net income per diluted share of $0.09.

Brad West, PGT's Chief Financial Officer commented, "During the first quarter, certain factors resulted in a lower EBITDA margin compared to the first quarter of last year. We experienced added costs, which impacted our margins 0.7%, as we are finalizing the transition to our new Enterprise Resource Planning system, in which 80% of our order volume is now being entered. We also invested in additional headcount to prepare for the anticipated demand given the underlying growth in the market, which impacted our margins by 1.8%. These items temporarily placed pressure on our EBITDA margins. Additionally, interest expense and non-cash amortization expense increased by $1.7 million during the quarter as a result of the acquisition and related refinancing."

Mr. West concluded, "The second quarter has begun strong, with approximately 11 percent organic growth in April. We believe we are well-positioned for a strong second quarter."

Second Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

While overall demand in construction maintained positive trends during the first quarter, construction activity was slowed by an unusually wet January in Florida. However, activity picked up at the end of the first quarter and continues in to the second quarter. After lower seasonal sales in the first quarter, rebounding sales are expected to result in higher quarterly EBITDA margins for the remainder of the year.

As a result, the Company expects that, for the second quarter, sales will range from $122 to $125 million and EBITDA margin will be 16.5 to 17.0 percent.

Given Florida's strong economy, positive demographics, and net migration increases, we remain confident in our growth. For the full year, the Company continues to estimate sales ranging between $460 and $475 million, representing an increase of between 18 and 22 percent, and consolidated adjusted EBITDA of between $80 and $90 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

From time to time, we have made or will make forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Exchange Act. These statements do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. 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.

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.

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.
