(Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and distributor of building products for the residential, industrial, infrastructure, and renewable energy and conservation markets, today reported its financial results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2018. All financial metrics in this release reflect only the Company’s continuing operations unless otherwise noted.

Diluted EPS $0. 70 $0.41 70.7% $0.71 $0.43 65.1%
 

The Company reported second-quarter 2018 net sales of $266.0 million at the higher end of its expectations outlined in its first-quarter earnings release. The 7 percent year-over-year increase was driven by higher sales across all business segments.

GAAP and adjusted earnings exceeded the Company’s guidance due to improving performance in the Renewable Energy & Conservation and Industrial & Infrastructure businesses, the success of 80/20 simplification initiatives, a greater mix of higher-margin innovative products, better alignment of selling prices to material costs and a tax benefit related to performance share vesting. The adjusted amounts for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017 remove special items from both periods, as described in the appended reconciliation of adjusted financial measures.

Management Comments

“We delivered a strong second quarter as we achieved revenues at the high end of our guidance range and exceeded our earnings guidance,” said President and CEO Frank Heard. “Revenues benefited from strong domestic demand in the Renewable Energy & Conservation and Industrial & Infrastructure businesses, and from sales of new innovative products across our segments. On the bottom line, a greater mix of higher-margin innovative products, the impact of pricing actions, 80/20 simplification initiatives, and a tax benefit related to performance-based compensation resulted in a 71 percent year-over-year increase in GAAP EPS and a 65 percent increase in adjusted EPS.

“Four years into our transformation, we are now firmly in growth mode, where much of our work is centered on our 'Innovation' strategic pillar. While we are benefiting from ongoing operational excellence efforts, we are now squarely focused on driving sustainable organic growth through new product development. We have already made good progress, as innovative products advanced to 9 percent of revenues during the quarter, from 7 percent in 2017 and 4 percent in 2014.”

Second-quarter Segment Results

Residential Products

For the second quarter, the Residential Products segment reported:

Net Sales $131.1 $127.3 3.0% $131.1 $127.3 3.0%
Operating Margin 18.5% 17.7% 80 bps 18.5% 17.8% 70 bps
 

Second-quarter 2018 revenues in Gibraltar’s Residential Products segment were up 3 percent versus 2017 primarily due to pricing actions related to raw material cost increases.

Product mix and improved raw material cost recovery through pricing actions accounted for the increase in adjusted operating income. The adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017 removes the special charges for restructuring initiatives under the 80/20 program from both periods.

Industrial & Infrastructure Products

For the second quarter, the Industrial & Infrastructure Products segment reported:

Operating Margin 10.8% 5.9% 490 bps 10.8% 3.5% 730 bps
 

Second-quarter 2018 revenues in Gibraltar’s Industrial & Infrastructure Products segment were up 6 percent versus 2017, driven primarily by contributions from new innovative industrial products and pricing actions related to raw material cost increases. The Company expects continued demand for innovative products to enhance this segment’s profitability for the remainder of the year.

GAAP and adjusted operating margin improvement for the segment reflects operational efficiencies resulting from the Company’s 80/20 initiatives, higher demand for innovative products, and timing of pricing actions relative to material cost increases. This segment’s adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017 removes the special charges for restructuring initiatives under the 80/20 program and portfolio management activities.

Renewable Energy & Conservation

For the second quarter, the Renewable Energy & Conservation segment reported:

Operating Margin 13.0% 5.6% 740 bps 13.0% 8.1% 490 bps
 

Renewable Energy & Conservation segment revenues were up 17 percent year over year due to strong demand in both Gibraltar’s domestic renewable energy and conservation markets and continued traction of innovative products.

The second-quarter 2018 GAAP and adjusted operating margin reflects higher-margin product mix and 80/20 operational improvements. This segment’s adjusted operating margin for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017 removes the special charges for restructuring initiatives, senior leadership transition costs and portfolio management activities.

Business Outlook

“We are optimistic about the second half of the year as we expect our innovation projects to continue to gain traction across all of our segments,” said Heard. “At the same time, we are cautious about the domestic and global volatility and competitive pressures related to the impact of tariffs. In addition, we expect higher development costs as we execute on our new product initiatives. Our goals for 2018 continue to be to drive sustainable organic growth through the acceleration of new product development initiatives, implement 80/20 simplification projects, and seek value-added acquisitions in attractive end markets.”

Gibraltar is maintaining its guidance for revenues and earnings for full-year 2018. Gibraltar expects 2018 consolidated revenues to exceed $1 billion, considering modest growth across the Company’s end markets and continued traction from innovative products. GAAP EPS for the full year 2018 are expected to be in the range of $1.75 to $1.87, or $1.96 to $2.08 on an adjusted basis, compared with $1.95 and $1.71, respectively, in 2017.

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company is expecting revenue in the range of $285 million to $295 million as a result of continued traction from innovative products. GAAP EPS for the third quarter 2018 are expected to be between $0.54 and $0.61, or $0.65 to $0.72 on an adjusted basis.

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 macroeconomic factors including government monetary and trade policies, such as tariffs and expiration of tax credits along with currency fluctuations and general political conditions. Other risks and uncertainties that arise from time to time are described in Item 1A “Risk Factors” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K. 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.

Adjusted Financial Measures

To supplement Gibraltar’s consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Gibraltar also presented certain adjusted financial measures in this news release. Adjusted financial measures exclude special charges consisting of restructuring costs primarily associated with the 80/20 simplification initiative and portfolio management actions, acquisition-related items, and other reclassifications. These adjustments are shown in the reconciliation of adjusted financial measures excluding special charges provided in the supplemental 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 the Company’s ongoing business operations. These adjusted measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company’s 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- and nine-month period ending September 30, 2018, on Thursday, November 1, 2018, and hold its earnings conference call later that morning, starting at 9:00 a.m. ET.
