VENICE, Fla., July 28, 2014 (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 six months ended June 28, 2014.

"Sales in the second quarter of 2014, totaling $81.6 million, represents our highest quarterly sales since 2006. This is also our seventh straight quarter of at least 25% year over year sales growth. Sales increased 29.9% over the second quarter of 2013, primarily driven by our new construction sales, as well as marketing programs focused on driving our WinGuard products into the repair and remodel market. During the quarter, impact sales grew 33% over prior year and represented 77% of total sales, compared to 76% a year ago. In addition, sales of non-impact products grew 21%," said PGT's President and Chief Operating Officer, Jeff Jackson.

Mr. Jackson continued, "This is an exciting time for PGT, as we signed an agreement for the acquisition of CGI Windows & Doors Holding Inc., a Florida-based impact-resistant window and door company, for the purchase price of approximately $111 million, which we announced in a separate press release issued today. Also, as our new glass plant is progressing as planned and will be operational by the beginning of our fourth quarter. We also expect to continue the momentum of strong year over year sales growth into the third quarter. July sales, in fact, were up approximately 17% over prior year, and we are forecasting third quarter sales to be between $74 million and $77 million, compared to our third quarter of 2013 of $64.9 million. The recent economic turnaround has presented tremendous opportunity for PGT. Our strategic initiatives over the past several years have positioned us to capitalize on improving market trends, and I'm thankful for the hard work and dedication of all our employees."

Our financial highlights for the second quarter ended June 28, 2014, compared to the same period last year, include:

  • Net sales of $81.6 million, an increase of $18.8 million, or 29.9%;
      
  • Gross margin of $26.1 million, an increase of $5.1 million, or 24.3%;
      
  • Selling, general and administrative costs of $13.0 million, or 15.9% of sales, compared to $12.8 million, or 20.3% of sales, after adjusting for fees related to our second quarter of 2013 secondary offering and debt refinancing;
     
  • Earnings before taxes ("EBT") of $12.6 million compared to EBT of $7.4 million, after adjusting for fees related to our second quarter of 2013 secondary offering and debt refinancing;
     
  • Net income of $7.8 million compared to net income of $7.7 million, after adjusting for expenses related to our second quarter of 2013 secondary offering, and debt refinancing,  and a discrete tax item;
     
  • Net income per diluted share of $0.16 compared to net income per diluted share of $0.14, after adjusting for expenses related to our second quarter of 2013 secondary offering, debt refinancing, and a discrete tax item; and
     
  • EBITDA of $14.5 million compared to $10.9 million, after adjusting for expenses related to our second quarter of 2013 secondary offering and debt refinancing.

Our financial highlights for the six months ended June 28, 2014, compared to the same period last year, include:

  • Net sales of $144.3 million, an increase of $31.9 million, or 28.4%;
      
  • Gross margin of $45.9 million, an increase of $7.3 million, or 19.0%;
      
  • Selling, general and administrative costs of $26.3 million, or 18.2% of sales, compared to $25.8 million, or 23.0%, after adjusting for gain on the sale of the Salisbury facility and fees related to our secondary offering, and debt refinancing;
      
  • Earnings before taxes ("EBT") of $17.9 million compared to EBT of $10.9 million, adjusted for gain on the sale of our Salisbury plant and fees related to our secondary offering and debt refinancing;
      
  • Net income of $11.2 million compared to net income of $10.9 million, after adjusting for gain on Salisbury plant, expenses related to our secondary offering, debt refinancing, and a discrete tax item;

Commenting on the second quarter, Brad West, PGT's Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our sales growth led to a 24.3% increase in gross margin dollars to $26.1 million. As a percent, however, our gross margin for the quarter decreased by 1.5%, attributable to increased material costs resulting from our sales growth exceeding internal capacities for finished glass processing. As Jeff mentioned, our glass plant is progressing as planned, which will address our internal capacity shortage for glass processing and reduce reliance on outsourced finished glass."   

Mr. West continued, "As our revenue grew, our selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of sales declined to 15.9%, compared to 20.3% in the second quarter of 2013, after adjusting for fees related to last year's secondary offering and debt refinancing. The reduction results from strong leverage in this category, as well as a reduction of $1.6 million in amortization expense compared to 2013."

Mr. West concluded, "This quarter produced our highest EBITDA since 2006, coming in at $14.5 million. Our cash balance was $33.4 million, as we produced $4.6 million in cash from operations, and spent $4.6 million on capital additions, of which $1.9 million was spent on the new glass facility during the quarter."

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, 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 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, 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.
