“In the second quarter JELD-WEN grew revenues by 23.6% through contributions from recent acquisitions and core growth, while our operating results were challenged by a difficult inflationary environment. As we move into the second half of 2018, we will gain momentum as we execute on our near-term priorities such as improving service levels for our customers, driving cost out of our business, and remaining disciplined with both pricing and share,” said Gary S. Michel, president and chief executive officer. “Based on my initial assessment of JELD-WEN since assuming the CEO role in June, I am confident that we have the right strategy, operating model, and talent already in place. I see substantial opportunities in all three segments for core growth, margin improvement, and bolt-on M&A as we create shareholder value and continue to make progress towards achieving our long-term financial and strategic targets.”

Second Quarter 2018 Results

Net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased $223.7 million, or 23.6%, to $1.172 billion, compared to $948.8 million for the same period last year. The increase in net revenues was driven by a 19% contribution from recent acquisitions, 3% from core revenue growth, and 2% from the favorable impact of foreign exchange. Core revenue growth, which excludes the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months, increased 2% from favorable pricing and 1% from improved in volume/mix.

Net income was $35.5 million, compared to net income of $46.8 million in the same quarter last year, a decrease of $11.3 million. The decrease in net income was primarily due to an increase in SG&A as well as a higher tax rate compared to the same quarter last year. Adjusted net income for the second quarter was $48.5 million, compared to $55.3 million in the same quarter last year, a decrease of $6.8 million.

EPS for the second quarter was $0.33 compared to $0.43 for the same quarter last year, a decrease of $0.10. Adjusted EPS was $0.45 compared to $0.51 for the same quarter last year, a decrease of $0.06.

Adjusted EBITDA margins decreased 170 basis points in the quarter to 11.5%, from 13.2% in the same quarter a year ago. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA margins was primarily due to a decrease in core margins of approximately 120 basis points as well as the impact of recent acquisitions. Core adjusted EBITDA margins were unfavorably impacted by inflation in materials and freight costs as well as operational investments to support core growth.

On a segment basis for the second quarter of 2018, compared to the same period last year:

North America - Net revenues increased $121.5 million, or 22.0%, to $673.2 million, due to a 19% contribution from recent acquisitions and 3% core revenue growth. Mid-single digit core revenue growth in the doors business was offset by lower volumes in the windows and Canada businesses. Adjusted EBITDA decreased $0.2 million, or 0.2%, to $79.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin declined by 270 basis points to 11.8%, primarily due to a decrease in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 180 basis points as well as the impact of recent acquisitions. Core margins declined primarily due to inflation in materials and freight costs as well as operational investments to support core growth. Europe - Net revenues increased $59.8 million, or 23.1%, to $318.7 million, due to a 15% contribution from recent acquisitions, 6% from the favorable impact of foreign exchange, and core growth of 2%. Adjusted EBITDA increased $0.9 million, or 2.3%, to $37.9 million. Adjusted EBITDA margins declined 240 basis points to 11.9%, primarily due to a decrease in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 160 basis points and the impact of recent acquisitions.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $6.9 million, or 39.6%, to $24.2 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by 90 basis points to 13.4%, primarily due to an increase in core adjusted EBITDA margins of 140 basis points, partially offset by the impact of recent acquisitions.

Year-to-Date 2018 Results

Net revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018 increased $322.0 million, or 17.9%, to $2.119 billion, compared to $1.797 billion for the same period last year. The increase was primarily driven by a 13% contribution from recent acquisitions, 3% from the favorable impact of foreign exchange, and core growth of 1%. Net income increased $22.5 million, or 42.3%, to $75.7 million, compared to $53.2 million in the same period last year. The increase in net income was primarily due to a non-cash gain and related tax benefits on the revaluation of a minority investment as well as reduced interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA increased $16.5 million, or 8.0%, to $222.8 million, compared to $206.3 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA margins decreased 100 basis points to 10.5%, from 11.5% in the same period a year ago. 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 50 basis points.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash flows used in operations increased $74.7 million in the first six months of 2018 to a use of $8.3 million, from $66.4 million of cash provided in the same period last year. Free cash flow decreased $111.8 million in the first six months of 2018 to a use of $65.3 million, from $46.6 million of cash provided in the same period last year. The decrease in free cash flow was due to seasonality in working capital usage, planned increases in seasonal inventory in certain product lines, and increased capital expenditures.

During the second quarter of 2018, the company repurchased 1,643,917 shares of its common stock for a total $47.0 million, representing an average price per share of $28.58. At the end of the quarter, $203.0 million was available for additional repurchases under the current authorization.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2018 were $137.6 million, compared to $220.2 million as of December 31, 2017. Total debt as of June 30, 2018 was $1.542 billion, compared to $1.274 billion as of December 31, 2017.

Outlook for 2018

The company’s outlook for adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 is $143 million to $153 million, compared to $128.2 million for the third quarter of 2017. The third quarter outlook assumes growth from the contribution of recent acquisitions and accelerating margin improvement in the core business.

For full year 2018 compared to full year 2017, the company now expects net revenue growth of 16% to 18%, compared to the previous outlook of 17% to 19%. The assumption for core revenue growth remains unchanged at approximately 3%. The decrease in the revenue growth outlook is due to the unfavorable impact of updated assumptions for foreign exchange rates.

The company’s outlook for full year 2018 adjusted EBITDA is now $500 million to $520 million, compared to the previous outlook of $505 million to $535 million and 2017 adjusted EBITDA of $437.6 million. The decrease in the outlook for adjusted EBITDA is due to the unfavorable impact of updated assumptions for foreign exchange rates as well as the expected unfavorable impact of recently announced tariffs. The midpoint of the updated outlook assumes core adjusted EBITDA margin improvement of approximately 70 basis points. This improvement in core adjusted EBITDA margins is expected to be offset by the impact of recent acquisitions and the impact of foreign exchange.

Full year 2018 capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $100 million to $120 million, compared to 2017 capital expenditures of $63.0 million.

Free cash flow for full year 2018 is expected to exceed adjusted net income.

Where, in any forward-looking statement, we express an expectation or belief as to future results or events, such expectation or belief is based on the current plans, expectations, assumptions, estimates, and projections of our management. Although we believe that these statements are based on reasonable expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections, they are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, many of which are beyond our control that could cause actual outcomes and results to be materially different from those indicated in such statements.

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 third quarter and full year 2018 include the achievement of anticipated improvements in end markets, competitive position, and product portfolio; 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 six months ended July 1, 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 July 1, 2017. To conform with current period presentation of revenues, we reclassified certain amounts in our statement of operations for the three and six months ended July 1, 2017. The reclassifications were not material to our previously issued financial statements. The cumulative impact of the adjustments for the three months ended July 1, 2017 was an increase in revenues of $0.1 million, increase in cost of sales of $4.4 million, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expense of $7.6 million, and an increase in other expense of $3.1 million. The cumulative impact of the adjustments for the six months ended July 1, 2017 was an increase in revenues of $0.2 million, increase in cost of sales of $8.8 million, a decrease in selling, general and administrative expense of $15.0 million, and an increase in other expense of $6.2 million. The corrections had no impact on net income or adjusted EBITDA. Please refer to our Form 10-Q for the three and six month period ended June 30, 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.
