Chief Executive Officer L.W.

“For 2021, we are implementing a wide array of initiatives in both of our business segments to take advantage of today’s encouraging trends in homebuilding and further drive long-term value creation for SIC.  These include expanding our customer base, product offering and geographic presence; enhancing the technology we offer customers and use ourselves; and increasing our fabrication capacity and productivity.  In addition, we recently appointed Karl Adrian as president of Residential Design Services.  Karl’s successful, 30-year track record in the building products industry combined with his focus on high performance will help us optimize SIC’s revenue growth and core earnings power.”

Mr. Varner concluded, “The combination of positive industry indicators supporting our growth, an enhanced leadership team, new initiatives to drive incremental growth combined with cost savings gives us confidence in our estimate of guidance around Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $54 million to $58 million for 2021.”

RESULTS FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER OF 2020

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased by 7.1% to $144.2 million, compared to net revenue of $155.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Residential Design Services (“RDS”) segment net revenue decreased 9.7%.  The decrease was largely due to a decline in sales related to negative price and product mix, as well as divestiture and discontinuation of certain ancillary product lines, but was partially offset by positive growth in volume, particularly in California and Arizona.  Architectural Surfaces Group (“ASG”) segment net revenue declined 3.5% due primarily to lower natural stone and tile sales volume.  The lower sales volume is attributable to a decline in business on the west coast, primarily as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the closure of two branches.  These volume declines were partially offset by improvements in price and product mix for stone and quartz.    

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased by 9.1% to $35.2 million, compared to $38.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to lower revenues.  Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 24.4%, compared to 25.0% for the fourth quarter of 2019. In the RDS segment, gross margin decreased 2.1 percentage points to 22.7% primarily due to an unfavorable product mix resulting from the increase of entry- to mid-level homebuilding and multi-family work as a percentage of our project activity in our markets.  In the ASG segment, gross margin increased 2.0 percentage points to 26.9% primarily due to improvements in price and product mix, the launch of new quartz products, and cost reduction initiatives.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $35.0 million, or 24.3% of net revenue, compared to $35.8 million, or 23.1% of net revenue, for the fourth quarter of 2019. This decrease reflects savings from position eliminations and furloughs and other cost reduction initiatives in response to COVID-19. SG&A for the fourth quarter of 2020 and 2019 included $5.3 million and $4.9 million, respectively, of equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs. On an adjusted basis, which excludes equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, SG&A was $29.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $30.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. 

For the fourth quarter of 2020, net loss was ($3.2 million), or ($0.13) EPS, compared to net income of $3.2 million, or $0.13 EPS, for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 included $3.7 million of other income, which primarily resulted from a change in the fair value of earnout liabilities for completed acquisitions.

EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased 49.9% to $6.1 million, compared to EBITDA of $12.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of equity compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, for the fourth quarter of 2020 decreased by 17.7% to $11.2 million, compared to $13.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. For the fourth quarter of 2020, Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue was 7.8%, compared to 8.8% for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Operating cash flow totaled $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $10.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 primarily as a result of reduced earnings and changes in working capital. Liquidity from cash-on-hand and borrowing availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility totaled $70.4 million at December 31, 2020, compared to $80.6 million at December 31, 2019.

RESULTS FOR THE FULL YEAR 2020

Net revenue for the full year 2020 decreased by $56.3 million or 9.2% to $554.0 million, compared to net revenue of $610.4 million for the full year 2019. RDS segment net revenue decreased 9.8%.  The decrease was due in part to volume declines in the Eastern Region, primarily attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic, divestiture and discontinuation of certain ancillary product lines, as well as product mix shifts in certain markets resulting from the increase of entry- to mid-level homebuilding and multi-family work as a percentage of our project activity in our markets.  Stay at home orders, particularly in the second quarter and early part of the third quarter heavily impacted our business with new safety measures and restrictions lowering productivity at RDS job sites.  RDS design center activity was also limited due to lockdowns and customer and employee concerns relating to in-person interaction.  The decline in organic volume was partially offset by increased sales from the acquisition of Intown in March 2019.  ASG segment net revenue decreased 8.7%.  This decrease was due to a decrease in volume of all products sold.  The decrease in overall volume, which peaked in the second quarter, was primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic.   Stay at home orders heavily impacted our business in Washington.  ASG showrooms were limited to appointment only sales.  Additionally, our fabricator customers were unable to execute in-residence installations due to stay at home orders at many of our locations combined with homeowner concerns about the pandemic.  Sales were also impacted by the closure of two branches.  Volume decreases were partially offset by increases from price and product mix, most of which came from sales of quartz products.

Gross profit for the full year 2020 decreased by 17.6% to $135.2 million, compared to $164.1 million for the full year 2019. The decrease in gross profit was primarily a result of lower net revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Gross margin for the full year 2020 was 24.4%, compared to 26.9% for the full year 2019. In the RDS segment, gross margin decreased 3.8 percentage points to 23.0% for the full year 2020, from 26.8% for the full year 2019.  This decrease is primarily due to unabsorbed fixed costs on our lower revenue base during the year and an unfavorable change in product mix. In the ASG segment, gross margin decreased 0.5 percentage points to 26.2%, for the full year 2020, from 26.7% for the full year 2019.  The decrease was primarily due to unabsorbed fixed costs on our lower revenue base during the year and a slight decline in product margin.

SG&A expenses for the full year 2020 were $131.8 million, or 23.8% of net revenue, compared to $144.8 million, or 23.7% of net revenue, for the full year 2019, primarily reflecting lower sales commissions, savings from position eliminations and furloughs, and other cost reduction initiatives in response to COVID-19. SG&A for the full years 2020 and 2019 included $13.4 million and $15.4 million, respectively, of equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs. On an adjusted basis, which excludes equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, SG&A was $118.4 million, or 21.4% of net revenue for the full year 2020, compared to $129.4 million, or 21.2% of net revenue, for the full year 2019.

For the full year 2020, net loss was ($9.9) million, or ($0.39) EPS, compared to net income of $7.0 million, or $0.28 basic EPS, for the full year 2019. Net income for the full year 2019 included $6.5 million of other income, which primarily resulted from a change in the fair value of earnout liabilities for completed acquisitions.

EBITDA for the full year 2020 decreased 50.7% to $24.6 million, compared to EBITDA of $49.9 million for the full year 2019. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of equity compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, for the full year 2020 decreased by 32.9% to $40.2 million, compared to $59.9 million for the full year 2019. For the full year 2020, Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue was 7.3%, compared to 9.8% for the full year 2019.

Operating cash flow decreased 33.4% to $20.6 million for the full year 2020, compared to $31.0 million for the full year 2019.

2021 INTEGRATION AND COST SAVINGS INITIATIVES

The Company has undertaken multiple targeted initiatives to drive incremental EBITDA from identified opportunities in strategic sourcing, organizational design and productivity, insurance programs, back office integration, and facility footprint optimization.  These opportunities, which are new and not COVID-19 related, are structural enhancements in operations that we expect will be sustainable.  These initiatives represent total targeted annualized structural cost savings of $8 million to $10 million, with a goal of 50% impact in 2021.

2021 OUTLOOK ESTIMATE

For 2021 we estimate Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $54 million to $58 million, representing year-over year growth of 34% to 44%.

Reconciliation for the forward-looking full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA outlook is not being provided, as the Company does not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation. The Company’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on its reported net income and its reported effective tax rate because these items, which could be significant, are difficult to predict and may be highly variable. Please see the Forward-Looking Statements section of this release for a discussion of certain risks relevant to the Company’s outlook.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and the schedules hereto include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Adjusted SG&A, which are financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures. We have provided definitions below for these non-GAAP financial measures and have provided tables in the schedules hereto to reconcile these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide valuable information regarding our earnings and business trends by excluding specific items that we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating results of our businesses, providing a useful way for investors to make a comparison of our performance over time and against other companies in our industry.

We have provided these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures and believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information regarding our operating performance and cash flows. Our management and board of directors also use these non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to evaluate our businesses and the performance of management, including the determination of performance-based compensation, to make operating and strategic decisions, and to allocate financial resources. We believe that these non-GAAP measures also provide meaningful information for investors and securities analysts to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures presented by us may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
