VENICE, Fla., Nov. 2, 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 third quarter ended October 1, 2011. In our third quarter:

  • Net sales were $45.8 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, or 3.0%, from prior year third quarter;
     
  • Net income was $241 thousand compared to a net loss of $207 thousand in the third quarter of 2010. Adjusted Net income was $982 thousand after adjusting for $741 thousand of consolidation related charges;
     
  • EBITDA was $5.1 million, compared to EBITDA of $4.7 million in the prior year third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.9 million after adjusting for consolidation related charges.

Rod Hershberger, President and Chief Executive Officer of PGT said, "The consolidation is complete, and our Florida location is now operating at the capacity both plants were achieving prior to the consolidation. This is evidenced by our lead times returning to their industry leading standards enabling us to ship additional product versus the second quarter of 2011. Additionally, our sales in the third quarter included $2.2 million of our new vinyl sliding glass door series launched earlier this year. This door won the industry's Crystal Achievement award for the most innovative door design, our second in a row.

"Compared to prior year, third quarter sales decreased 3.0%, due mainly to our decision to reduce efforts out of state and continued issues within the economy, specifically, within the housing industry. We expect these issues to continue affecting our top line into the fourth quarter, where demand typically softens in the repair and remodeling market," said Mr. Hershberger.

Jeff Jackson, PGT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, further explained the decrease in sales, stating, "Vinyl non-impact sales were down $1.8 million, or 38%, when compared to the prior year. This was driven by our decision to reduce sales and marketing efforts in certain out of state markets. Also contributing to the decline was a $2.1 million decrease in the Architectural Systems products sales based in part on the continued softness in the commercial market. Offsetting these decreases were increases of $1.5 million and $0.9 million from our PremierVue and Vinyl WinGuard product lines, respectively, due in part to the new sliding glass door and our commitment to serve the ever increasing vinyl demand in Florida."

Mr. Jackson continued, "Our results confirm that we are benefiting from the savings generated by the consolidation. Adjusted EBITDA improved $1.2 million despite lower sales, to $5.9 million or 12.8% of sales, compared to 9.9% a year ago. Also, our adjusted net income of $982 thousand was the highest in any quarter since the second quarter of 2008. During the quarter, we generated $4.0 million of cash from operations and repaid $2.5 million of long term debt. At the end of the quarter, our net debt was $37.6 million."
