JELD-WEN Announces Third Quarter 2018 Results and Affirms 2018 Outlook
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. (NYSE:JELD) today announced results for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2018 and affirmed its 2018 outlook.
Third Quarter Summary:Results were in line with preliminary results announced on October 15, 2018 Net revenues for the third quarter increased 14.7% year over year to $1.137 billion Net revenue growth was driven primarily by a 17% contribution from acquisitions, partially offset by a 2% foreign exchange headwind, while core revenue growth was unchanged Net income for the third quarter was $28.9 million, a decrease of $22.4 million year over year Diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) for the third quarter was $0.27, a decrease of $0.20, and adjusted EPS amounted to $0.40, a decrease of $0.15, year over year Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was $132.9 million, an increase of $4.7 million year over year Returned $36.6 million to shareholders through share repurchases Outlook for full year 2018 includes net revenue growth of 15% to 17% and adjusted EBITDA of $455 million to $470 million
“In the third quarter JELD-WEN grew revenues by 14.7% through contributions from recent acquisitions, while core operating results were challenged by lower than anticipated volumes and unfavorable mix in certain business lines,” said Gary S. Michel, president and chief executive officer. “Volumes were unfavorably impacted by the lingering effects of prior service issues in our U.S. windows and Northern European businesses, resulting in operational inefficiencies impacting our profitability. While we have corrected these service issues, the impact on our volumes is expected to persist in the fourth quarter. As we look ahead towards 2019, we are confident in our ability to drive revenue and earnings growth, realize pricing to offset inflation, and deliver productivity from our business operating system, the JELD-WEN Excellence Model or JEM.”
Third Quarter 2018 Results
Net revenues for the three months ended September 29, 2018 increased $145.6 million, or 14.7%, to $1.137 billion, compared to $991.3 million for the same period last year. The increase in net revenues was driven by a 17% contribution from recent acquisitions, partly offset by a 2% adverse impact from foreign exchange. Core revenue, which excludes the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months, was unchanged during the quarter. Core revenue included a 2% benefit from favorable pricing, which was offset by a 2% impact from unfavorable volume/mix.
Net income was $28.9 million, compared to net income of $51.3 million in the same quarter last year, a decrease of $22.4 million. The decrease in net income was primarily due to higher SG&A, which included litigation contingency expense of $76.5 million, partially offset by discrete tax benefits of $59.8 million. Adjusted net income for the third quarter was $43.0 million, compared to $59.8 million in the same quarter last year, a decrease of $16.9 million.
EPS for the third quarter was $0.27 compared to $0.47 for the same quarter last year, a decrease of $0.20. Adjusted EPS was $0.40 compared to $0.55 for the same quarter last year, a decrease of $0.15.
Adjusted EBITDA increased $4.7 million, or 3.7%, to $132.9 million, compared to $128.2 million in the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA margins decreased 120 basis points in the quarter to 11.7%, from 12.9% in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA margins was primarily due to a decrease in core margins of 130 basis points. Core adjusted EBITDA margins were unfavorably impacted by lower volumes and related operational inefficiencies, as well as unfavorable mix and inflation in our North America and Europe segments.
On a segment basis for the third quarter of 2018, compared to the same period last year:North America - Net revenues increased $96.3 million, or 16.8%, to $668.2 million, due primarily to contribution from recent acquisitions, while core revenues were unchanged. Core revenue benefit from pricing was 3% in the quarter, representing a sequential improvement from 2% in the second quarter, and was offset by a 3% reduction due to volume/mix. The volume headwinds were primarily due to the lingering demand impact of previous service and lead time inefficiencies that have since been resolved. Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.6 million, or 2.0%, to $84.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin declined by 180 basis points to 12.6%, primarily due to a decrease in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 100 basis points as well as the impact of recent acquisitions. Core margins declined primarily due to productivity inefficiencies from lower volumes, as well as unfavorable channel mix and inflation in materials and freight. Europe - Net revenues increased $27.8 million, or 10.5%, to $292.9 million, due to a 13% contribution from recent acquisitions, partially offset by 2% from the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange. Core revenues were unchanged as a 1% benefit from pricing was offset by a 1% reduction due to volume/mix. Volumes were unfavorably impacted by the lingering demand impact of previous service and lead time issues in our Northern European business. Adjusted EBITDA decreased $5.2 million, or 15.7%, to $28.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA margins declined 300 basis points to 9.6%, primarily due to a decrease in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 250 basis points and the impact of recent acquisitions. Core margins declined primarily due to productivity inefficiencies from lower volumes, as well as unfavorable mix and material inflation. Australasia - Net revenues increased $21.5 million, or 14.0%, to $175.9 million, primarily due to the contribution from recent acquisitions of 22%, partially offset by 7% from the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange and a 1% decline in core growth. Adjusted EBITDA increased $3.4 million, or 14.7%, to $26.3 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 10 basis points to 14.9%, primarily due to an increase in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 50 basis points, partially offset by the impact of recent acquisitions.
Year-to-Date 2018 Results
Net revenues for the nine months ended September 29, 2018 increased $467.7 million, or 16.8%, to $3.256 billion, compared to $2.788 billion for the same period last year. The increase was primarily driven by a 15% contribution from recent acquisitions, favorable foreign exchange impact of 1%, and core growth of 1%. Net income increased $0.1 million, or 0.1%, to $104.6 million, compared to $104.5 million in the same period last year.

The decrease in adjusted EBITDA margins was primarily due to the impact of recent acquisitions and a decrease in core adjusted EBITDA margins of approximately 80 basis points.
Cash Flow and Balance Sheet
Cash flows from operations totaled $88.0 million in the first nine months of the year compared to $174.3 million in the same period last year. Cash flows from operations improved sequentially by $96.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2018, modestly below the $108.0 million sequential period improvement from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2017. Free cash flow decreased $134.1 million year over year in the first nine months of 2018 to $7.8 million, from $141.9 million during the same period last year. The decrease in free cash flow was primarily due to increased working capital requirements and increased capital expenditures.
Through the first nine months of 2018, the company has repurchased 3,080,594 shares of its common stock for a total $83.6 million, representing an average price per share of 27.14, including 1,436,677 shares repurchased for a total of $36.6 million during the third quarter, for an average price per share of $25.48. At the end of the quarter, $166.4 million was available for additional repurchases through December 2019 under the current authorization.
Cash and cash equivalents as of September 29, 2018 were $151.4 million, compared to $220.2 million as of December 31, 2017. Total debt as of September 29, 2018 was $1.532 billion, compared to $1.274 billion as of December 31, 2017.
Outlook for 2018
The company’s outlook for adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2018 is approximately $99 million to $114 million, compared to $103.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. The fourth quarter outlook assumes growth from the contribution of recent acquisitions, partially offset by lower core profitability as a result of continued margin headwinds in North America and Europe.
The company’s outlook for the full year 2018 net revenue and adjusted EBITDA remains consistent with the last update provided on October 15, 2018.
For full year 2018 compared to full year 2017, the company expects net revenue growth of 15% to 17%. The revenue growth outlook includes the impact of lower than anticipated core revenues in the third and fourth quarters.
The company’s outlook for full year 2018 adjusted EBITDA remains $455 million to $470 million, compared to 2017 adjusted EBITDA of $437.6 million. The midpoint of the outlook assumes a core adjusted EBITDA margin decline of approximately 70 basis points year over year.
Full year 2018 capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $100 million to $110 million, a reduction of $5 million at the midpoint versus previously announced expectations, and an increase compared to 2017 capital expenditures of $63.0 million.

Our actual results could differ materially from the results contemplated by these forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including the factors discussed in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, both filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The assumptions underlying the guidance provided for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 include the achievement of anticipated improvements in end markets, competitive position, product portfolio, and internal operations; stable macroeconomic factors; continued inflation in materials and freight costs; no further changes in foreign currency exchange and tax rates; successful integration of recent acquisitions; and our future business plans.

Adjustments to Previously Reported Financial Information
The statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 has been revised to reflect the correction of certain errors and other accumulated misstatements as described in our Form 10-K - Note 36 - Revision of Prior Period Financial Statements. The errors did not impact the subtotals for cash flows from operating activities, investing activities or financing activities for any of the periods affected. In addition, as a result of our retrospective application of ASU 2017-07, we reclassified certain amounts in our statement of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2017. To conform with current period presentation of revenues, we reclassified certain amounts in our statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017. The reclassifications were not material to our previously issued financial statements. The cumulative impact of the adjustments for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was an decrease in revenues of $0.1 million, increase in cost of sales of $0.2 million, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expense of $3.4 million, and an increase in other expense of $3.1 million. The cumulative impact of the adjustments for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was an increase in cost of sales of $1.6 million, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expense of $11.0 million, and an increase in other expense of $9.3 million. The corrections had no impact on net income or adjusted EBITDA. Please refer to our Form 10-Q for the three and nine month period ended September 29, 2018 for additional details.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release presents certain “non-GAAP” financial measures. The components of these non-GAAP measures are computed by using amounts that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their nearest comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables at the end of this press release. The company provides certain guidance solely on a non-GAAP basis because the company cannot predict certain elements that are included in certain reported GAAP results, including the variables and individual adjustments necessary for a reconciliation to GAAP. While management is not able to specifically quantify the reconciliation items for forward-looking non-GAAP measures without unreasonable effort, management bases the estimated ranges of non-GAAP measures for future periods on its reasonable estimates of such factors as assumed effective tax rate, assumed interest expense, and other assumptions about capital requirements for future periods.
We use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EPS because we believe they assist investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are helpful in highlighting trends because they exclude the results of decisions that are outside the control of management, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which we operate, and capital investments. We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to measure our financial performance and also to report our results to our board of directors. Further, our executive incentive compensation is based in part on Adjusted EBITDA. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA as calculated herein for purposes of calculating compliance with our debt covenants in certain of our debt facilities. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of financial performance or to cash flows from operations as a liquidity measure.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), eliminating the impact of the following items: loss from discontinued operations, net of tax; (gain) loss on sale of discontinued operations, net of tax; equity (earnings) loss of non-consolidated entities; income tax; depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; impairment and restructuring charges; (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment; share-based compensation expense; non-cash foreign exchange transaction/translation (income) loss; other non-cash items; non-recurring, extraordinary items; other items; and costs related to debt restructuring, debt refinancing, and the Onex investment. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.
We present free cash flow because we believe it assists investors and analysts in determining the quality of our earnings. We also use free cash flow to measure our financial performance and to report to our board of directors. In addition, our executive incentive compensation is based in part on free cash flow. We define free cash flow as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures (including purchases of intangible assets). Free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to cash flows from operations as a liquidity measure.
Adjusted net income represents net income adjusted for the after-tax impact of i) non-cash foreign currency (gains) losses, ii) impairment and restructuring charges, iii) one-time non-cash gains, iv) other non-recurring expenses associated with certain matters such as our initial public offering, secondary offering, mergers, and litigation. Adjusted EPS represents net income per diluted share adjusted to exclude the estimated per share impact of the same specifically identified items used to calculate adjusted net income as described above. Where applicable, such items are tax-effected at our estimated annual effective tax rate.
Other companies may compute these measures differently. No non-GAAP metric should be considered as an alternative to any other measure derived in accordance with GAAP.
Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this document may not sum precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.
