PGTI Reports 2016 Strong Third Quarter Results

Record Quarterly Sales of $130 million

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights versus the Prior Year Period

VENICE, Fla., Nov. 03, 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 third quarter and nine months ended October 1, 2016.

"We delivered another period of solid financial and operating performance in the third quarter," commented PGTI's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, Rod Hershberger. "We grew revenue, gross margin and net income on both a sequential and year-over-year basis, which was the result of sales and profitability from both of our acquired businesses, CGI and WinDoor, as well as from our legacy business, PGT Custom Windows & Doors."

"Our strategic priorities remain focused on our three brand go-to-market strategy, continuing to drive product innovation and accretive acquisitions," Hershberger continued. "Our consistent strong performance is a direct result of our team's ability to effectively execute these strategies."

"Hurricane Matthew was the first hurricane of its magnitude to hit the East Coast of the U.S. in over a decade," Hershberger continued. "Thankfully, the destruction was much more limited than originally predicted. However, many of our East Coast customers experienced approximately a two-week disruption to their businesses in October, which may have a slight impact on our sales for the fourth quarter. In 2017, however, we expect some heightened consumer awareness and additional sales related to that awareness."

Nine Months 2016 Financial Highlights versus the Prior Year Period

"Looking to the balance of 2016, we have seen some softness in the luxury market; however, we continue to see steady demand in the mass-custom market. We were able to reach our financial objectives and shorten lead-times by reducing our backlog to $47 million," commented Jeff Jackson, PGTI's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Our first new Thermal Plastic Spacer (TPS) system, which is an innovative and cutting-edge technology that we believe will enable us to produce better quality insulated glass units, was fully operational as of September. We are also strengthening our team with a deeper bench of talent and leadership across the organization. In August, we added a new Vice President of Sales, Brent Boydston, in addition to approximately ten other senior managers that we have added to our team during 2016. We also continue to invest in our team with comprehensive training programs as our total team members now stand at over 2,600."

"Our three brands are also integrating efficiently and operating more effectively as one company, providing best-in-class products to our customer," Jackson continued.  "In January at the International Builders Show in Orlando, we are unveiling a comprehensive three brand go-to-market strategy with newly-enhanced brand positions and innovative new products."

"While our steadfast focus remains on executing our overall financial and operational objectives, we are excited about the future of PGTI," Jackson stated.  "We believe our strategies for profitable organic growth and accretive acquisitions, combined with our ability to execute, strong balance sheet and disciplined approach to capital allocation, will continue to create shareholder value."

Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

Our fiscal year 2016 outlook for total consolidated sales is between $458 and $460 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. Our disclosures in this report contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. 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. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:

Any forward-looking statements made by us or on our behalf speak only as of the date they are made, and we do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect the impact of subsequent events or circumstances.

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.

(1) The Company's non-GAAP financial measures were explained in its Form 8-K filed November 3, 2016.
         
(2) Represents fair value adjustment resulting in the reversal of the liability for the earn-out contingency of $3.0 million established in the acquisition of WinDoor on February 16, 2016. The stock purchase agreement provides for a potential additional payment to the sellers based on WinDoor's 2016 calendar-year sales. If WinDoor's 2016 sales reach $46 million, the additional payment is 5.9% of sales, or $2.7 million, up to a maximum sales amount of $51 million, or $3.0 million.  If WinDoor's 2016 calendar-year sales are less than $46 million, no payment is required. Based on WinDoor's sales through the end of the second quarter, we believed that WinDoor would achieve 2016 calendar-year sales of at least the minimum sales level of $46 million requiring payment under the arrangement. Therefore, we made no adjustment to our payable for contingent consideration. However, based on WinDoor's sales through the end of the third quarter of 2016, we concluded that it is unlikely that WinDoor's 2016 calendar-year sales will reach $46 million, and as required by the accounting rules, we recorded a fair value adjustment of $3.0 million to the liability for contingent consideration included in income from operations in the three and nine months ended October 1, 2016.
         
(3) Represents costs and expenses relating to our February 16, 2016 acquisition of WinDoor, Inc., and simultaneous refinancing of our then existing credit facility into the 2016 Credit Agreement, as well as the minor acquisition completed in the 2016 third quarter. Of the $4.6 million, $3.4 million represents and is classified as debt extinguishment costs, and $0.9 million represents transaction- and refinancing-related costs and expenses classified within selling, general and administrative expenses in the nine months ended October 1, 2016. Costs of $0.3 million in the three months ended October 1, 2016, were included in selling, general and administrative expenses.
         
(4) Represents estimated charges relating to product discontinuances, including our Architectural Systems aluminum and PremierVue vinyl impact products, of which $833 thousand is classified within cost of sales in the three and nine months ended October 1, 2016, and $275 thousand is classified within selling, general and administrative expenses in the nine months ended October 1, 2016.
         
(5) Represents costs associated with ERP system conversion, of which $1.6 million is included in cost of sales and $47 thousand is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the three and nine months ended October 3, 2015.
         
(6) Represents costs associated with new product launches, of which $284 thousand is included in cost of sales in the three months ended October 3, 2015, and $894 thousand is included in cost of sales and $304 thousand is included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the nine months ended October 3, 2015.
         
(7) Represents costs associated with start-up of the laminated glass line, of which $141 thousand is included in cost of sales in the three and nine months ended October 3, 2015.
         
(8) Represents special project costs relating to outside efficiency improvement experts, included in selling, general and administrative expenses in the three and nine months ended October 1, 2016. In the three and nine months ended October 3, 2015, represents costs associated with legal settlement of $100 thousand and other corporate costs of $41 thousand, all of which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses, and fair value adjustments due to losses on non-hedge commodity-related contracts of $131 thousand, included in other expenses, net.
.        
(9) Represents income tax expense previously classified within accumulated other comprehensive losses, relating to the intraperiod income taxes on our effective aluminum hedges. This amount, previously allocated to other comprehensive income, was reversed in the second quarter of 2015.
