Gibraltar Reports Second-Quarter 2015 Financial Results

  • Q2 Adjusted EPS of $0.25; Q2 Sales Up 8% Versus Prior Year
  • June 9th RBI Acquisition Accretive to Second-Quarter Adjusted Results
  • Confirms Full-Year Organic Earnings Growth Guidance

BUFFALO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2015-- Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and distributor of building products for industrial, infrastructure and residential markets, today reported its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2015. In a separate release, the Company also announced today that it has appointed Sharon M. Brady and James B. Nish as directors, completing its succession plans.

Second-Quarter Consolidated Results

Gibraltar’s net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased 8 percent to $253.2 million, compared with $235.0 million for the second quarter of 2014. Second-quarter 2015 adjusted net income was $7.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with adjusted net income of $6.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014. The adjusted second-quarter 2015 results exclude special items with an after-tax net charge totaling $3.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, resulting primarily from costs related to the acquisition of RBI Solar, Inc., Rough Brothers Manufacturing Inc., and affiliates (collectively “RBI”) on June 9, exit costs related to facility closures and the Company’s senior leadership transition. The adjusted second-quarter 2014 results excluded special items with an after-tax net gain totaling $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, resulting primarily from acquisition-related gains and exit activity costs related to business restructuring. Including these items in the respective periods, the Company’s second-quarter 2015 GAAP net income was $4.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.4 million, or $0.21 per share, in the second quarter of 2014.

Management Comments

“Gibraltar’s second-quarter financial results were consistent with our expectations, and we made continued progress executing on our value-creation strategy, highlighted by the acquisition of RBI,” said Chief Executive Officer Frank Heard. “Consolidated net sales were up 8 percent year over year, primarily reflecting sales at RBI. Organic sales increased in our postal storage and roofing-related businesses in the Residential Products segment but were offset by continued soft demand in the Industrial and Infrastructure Products segment.”

“As part of our value-creation strategy, since the fourth quarter of 2014, we have been working to align our cost structure to market demand, consolidate facilities, better manage our pricing, reduce overhead and increase efficiency throughout the business,” Heard said. “These operational improvement initiatives enabled us to again deliver increased quarterly earnings. Our second quarter adjusted EPS grew by 32 percent with 11 percentage points coming from our base businesses on nearly equivalent consolidated sales, with the balance of 21 percentage points improvement coming from the accretive addition of RBI. As we begin the second half of 2015, we will continue to focus on three key goals: increasing adjusted earnings, making more efficient use of Gibraltar’s capital, and delivering higher shareholder returns than we did in 2014.”

Second-Quarter Segment Results

Separate from the performance of the two segments highlighted below, the Company’s second-quarter results benefited from its acquisition of RBI. RBI has established itself during the past five years as North America’s fastest-growing provider of photovoltaic (PV) solar racking solutions. Since June 9, RBI was accretive to the Company’s second-quarter results, adding adjusted earnings of $0.04 per diluted share on revenues of $17.1 million.

Residential Products

Second-quarter 2015 net sales in Gibraltar’s Residential Products segment increased 15 percent to $134.7 million, compared with $117.4 million for the second quarter of 2014. Second-quarter 2015 adjusted operating margin increased 200 basis points year over year to 11.3 percent. Sales growth in this segment reflected strong demand for postal storage products driven by conversions to centralized delivery, with a modest rebound in demand for our roofing–related products. The segment’s adjusted operating margin reflected the benefit of higher volume and improved operational efficiencies.

Industrial and Infrastructure Products

Second-quarter 2015 net sales in Gibraltar’s Industrial & Infrastructure Products segment decreased 14 percent to $101.4 million, compared with $117.6 million for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted operating margin only decreased by 10 basis points year over year to 5.3 percent as improved manufacturing efficiencies and tighter management of price and raw material margin helped offset the effect of the 14 percent revenue decrease. Sales in this segment reflected lower shipment volumes to industrial markets and a 2 percent decrease due to the effect of weaker foreign currencies in its Canadian and European operations. Industrial demand was lower than in the prior-year quarter as domestic energy and mining activity declined in part due to the effects of lower oil prices. Meanwhile, the transportation infrastructure market continues to be affected by short-term uncertainty in federal funding programs.

Business Outlook

Gibraltar expects organic net sales for full-year 2015 to be equivalent to 2014, with growth expected in residential-related product lines to be offset by a decline in industrial-related revenues. In addition to the Company’s base businesses, the June 9, 2015 acquisition of RBI is expected to add incremental revenues of $130 million to $140 million through December 31, 2015, including $17 million of revenues in June 2015. The combined revenues of Gibraltar’s base businesses plus RBI are expected to result in 2015 revenues being $980 million to $990 million, an increase of approximately 14% compared to $862 million for 2014. Regarding earnings, the anticipated profit expansion from cost-reduction initiatives as well as the addition of the RBI acquisition is expected to result in adjusted earnings for 2015 in the range of $0.78 to $0.88 per diluted share, compared with $0.47 per diluted share in 2014. This range includes non-GAAP adjusted earnings accretion from RBI in the range of $0.20 to $0.24 per diluted share, excluding non-cash amortization, purchase accounting and transaction expenses.

For the third quarter of 2015, revenues and adjusted EPS are expected to increase compared with the third quarter of 2014, benefiting from the accretive income from the RBI acquisition.

Gibraltar has scheduled a conference call today starting at 9:00 a.m. ET to review its results for the second quarter of 2015.

Safe Harbor Statement

Information contained in this news release, other than historical information, contains forward-looking statements and is subject to a number of risk factors, uncertainties, and assumptions. Risk factors that could affect these statements include, but are not limited to, the following: the availability of raw materials and the effects of changing raw material prices on the Company’s results of operations; energy prices and usage; changing demand for the Company’s products and services; changes in the liquidity of the capital and credit markets; risks associated with the integration and performance of acquisitions; and changes in interest and tax rates. In addition, such forward-looking statements could also be affected by general industry and market conditions, as well as general economic and political conditions. The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law or regulation.

Non-GAAP Financial Data

To supplement Gibraltar’s consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Gibraltar also presented certain adjusted financial data in this news release. Adjusted financial data excluded special charges consisting of gains / losses on sales of property, restructuring primarily associated with the closing and consolidation of our facilities, acquisition-related items, and senior leadership transition costs. These adjustments are shown in the non-GAAP reconciliation of adjusted operating results excluding special charges provided in the financial schedules that accompany this news release. The Company believes that the presentation of results excluding special charges provides meaningful supplemental data to investors, as well as management, that are indicative of the Company’s core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods as well as comparison with other companies. Special charges are excluded since they may not be considered directly related to our ongoing business operations. These adjusted measures should not be viewed as a substitute for our GAAP results, and may be different than adjusted measures used by other companies.

Next Earnings Announcement

Gibraltar expects to release its financial results for the three month period ending September 30, 2015, on Wednesday, October 28, and hold its earnings conference call later that morning, starting at 9:00 a.m. ET.
