Euramax Holdings, Inc. Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

NORCROSS, Ga., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Euramax Holdings, Inc., a leading international producer of metal and vinyl products sold to the residential repair and remodel, non-residential construction and recreational vehicle (RV) markets primarily in North America and Europe, today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2012. Net sales, operating income, and adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 were $219.2 million, $6.6 million, and $17.0 million, respectively.  Net sales, operating income, and adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2012 were $641.6 million, $14.4 million, and $46.9 million, respectively.

President and CEO Mitchell B. Lewis commented, "We had solid operating results for the third quarter of 2012. We were able to achieve significant improvements in operating income and improvements in adjusted EBITDA during the quarter despite continuing economic challenges in Europe and severe drought conditions throughout much of the United States. Improvements in our operating results reflect higher demand in the post frame construction, RV and transportation markets in our U.S. Commercial Products Segment and initiatives taken by the Company in both Europe and the U.S. to reduce overhead costs and streamline operations. Additionally, in the third quarter we completed a small but strategic acquisition which provides the Company manufacturing expertise in our Residential Product Segment and expands our product offering to our existing customer base. We believe the results of our third quarter are further indication that the initiatives undertaken to reduce costs and stream line operations have positioned the Company for a strong performance once our end markets recover."

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Summary

  • Net sales declined $27.6 million, or 11.2%, to $219.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $246.8 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The decline in net sales is primarily related to the Company's European Roll Coated Aluminum and European Engineered Product segments. These European segments comprised approximately $14.2 million of the overall sales decline in the quarter, including an approximate $5.7 million decline due to the weakening of the euro and British pound sterling against the U.S. dollar. This decline in demand reflects the negative impact of the continuing economic uncertainty throughout Europe.
  • Net sales in our U.S. segments declined approximately $13.4 million, or 7.9%, over the prior year. Higher demand in the Company's U.S. Commercial Products Segment for steel and aluminum roofing and siding sold in the post frame construction markets and RV and transportation markets resulted in higher sales volumes during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year quarter. Despite higher sales volumes in our U.S. Commercial Products segment, net sales for our U.S. segments declined, reflecting lower sales prices as a result of declining steel and aluminum raw material costs and lower demand for roof drainage products in our U.S. Residential Products Segment, which continued to be negatively impacted by severe drought conditions throughout much of the U.S.  Despite this overall decline in net sales, income from operations improved significantly during the current quarter.
  • Income from operations increased $2.8 million, or 73.7%, to $6.6 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $3.8 million for the third quarter of 2011. The improvement in income from operations is primarily the result of higher sales volumes in the post frame construction market and improved margins in the RV and transportation markets within the Company's U.S. Commercial Products segment. Income from operations also benefited from reductions in selling and general costs and other operating charges during the quarter, which reflect cost savings and restructuring initiatives in both Europe and the United States, including the consolidation of multiple plant locations within the U.S.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a significant operating measure used by the Company to measure its operating performance and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA was $17.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $15.9 million in the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by approximately $0.3 million due to the weakening of the euro and British pound sterling against the U.S. dollar.

Forward Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including but not limited to statements related to plans for future business development activities, anticipated costs of revenues, product mix, research and development and selling, general and administrative activities, and liquidity and capital needs and resources. When used in this report, the words "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "estimate," and similar expressions are generally intended to identify forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which only speak as of the date of this press release. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

GAAP Versus Non-GAAP Presentation
The Company presents adjusted EBITDA in this press release as additional information regarding the Company's operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss plus (i) benefit for income taxes, (ii) interest expense and (iii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude the effects of certain income and expense items that management believes make it more difficult to assess the Company's actual operating performance. The Company's calculation of adjusted EBITDA is consistent with the calculation of Consolidated Cash Flow in the indenture governing the Notes, excluding certain pro forma items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., and should not be considered an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity.

The Company believes adjusted EBITDA is helpful to investors in highlighting trends because adjusted EBITDA excludes the results of certain decisions of operating management that can differ significantly from company to company depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which companies operate and capital investments. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business than GAAP results alone. The Company also believes adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Investors use adjusted EBITDA, among other things, to assess the Company's period-to-period operating performance and to gain insight into the manner in which management analyzes operating performance.

A reconciliation of the Company's adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) is included in the supplemental information attached to this release.
