May 2nd, 2022 6:00 EST

Seventh Consecutive Quarter of Core Revenue Growth, Including Core Revenue Growth in Each Segment

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. (NYSE:JELD) today announced results for the three months ended March 26, 2022, including first quarter net revenue of $1,171.0 million, net loss of $0.5 million, adjusted EBITDA of $80.2 million, cash flow used in operations of $186.9 million, net loss per share of $0.01, and adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.16. Comparability is to the same period in the prior year, unless otherwise noted. References to “core” financial results exclude the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months.

 Highlights
  • Net revenue increased 7.2% for the first quarter driven by 10% core revenue growth
  • Seven consecutive quarters of core revenue growth, including core revenue growth in each segment
  • Realized 12% pricing to mitigate raw material and freight inflation
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 18.0% for the first quarter to $80.2 million
  • Significant increase in raw material, freight and labor inflation negatively impacted results
  • Repurchased 1.8 million shares in the quarter or approximately 2% of total shares outstanding at year-end 2021

“I am proud of our dedicated associates who delivered another solid quarter of core revenue growth across each of our segments,” said Gary S. Michel, chair and chief executive officer. “Our improved execution and customer-centric solutions enabled us to capitalize on solid customer demand. Despite our strong core revenue growth, material increases in raw material, freight and labor inflation had a significant impact on our earnings. As we head into the second quarter, we remain laser-focused on driving above market growth through the introduction of innovative and margin accretive new products and services and additional strategic margin expansion opportunities. Given our strong order books, end market demand and initiatives in progress to drive profitable growth, we remain confident in our ability to deliver our 2022 and long-term financial commitments.”

First Quarter 2022 Results 

Net revenue for the three months ended March 26, 2022 increased $78.6 million, or 7.2%, to $1,171.0 million, compared to $1,092.4 million for the same period last year. The increase in net revenue was driven by 10% core revenue growth, partially offset by a 3%  adverse impact from foreign exchange.

Net loss was $0.5 million in the first quarter, compared to net income of $25.5 million in the same period last year, a decrease of $26.0 million. The decrease in net income was largely from lower gross profit due to raw material, freight and labor inflation.

Net loss per share for the first quarter was $0.01, compared to earnings per share of $0.25 for the same quarter last year. Adjusted EPS decreased 40.7% to $0.16, compared to $0.27 a year ago. 

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $17.7 million, or 18.0%, to $80.2 million, compared to the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin declined due to higher raw material, freight and labor inflation, partially offset by higher price realization.

On a segment basis for the first quarter of 2022, compared to the same period last year:

  • North America – Net revenue increased $82.7 million, or 12.9%, to $722.3 million, due to a 13% increase in core revenue. Core revenue increased due to price (+14%), partially offset by lower volume/mix (1%). Adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.3%.
  • Europe – Net revenue increased $2.8 million, or 0.9%, to $323.3 million, due to an 8% increase in core revenue, partially offset by a 7% adverse impact from foreign exchange. Core revenue increased due to price (+11%), partially offset by lower volume/mix (3%). Adjusted EBITDA margin was 4.5%.

Net cash flow used in operations was $186.9 million in the first quarter 2022, compared to net cash flow used in operations of $64.9 million during the same period a year ago. The increase in net cash flow used in operations was due to higher working capital investment and lower net income. Free cash flow used was $203.2 million in the first quarter 2022, compared to free cash flow used of $85.9 million during the same period a year ago. The increase in free cash flow used was due to higher net cash flow used in operations, partially offset by lower capital expenditures.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements by our CEO and statements regarding our business strategies and ability to execute on our plans, market potential, future financial performance, customer demand, the potential of our categories, brands and innovations, the impact of our footprint rationalization and modernization program, the impact of acquisitions and divestitures on our business and our ability to maximize value and integrate operations, our pipeline of productivity projects, the estimated impact of tax reform on our results, litigation outcomes, and our expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, prospects, assumptions, or other future events. Forward-looking statements are generally identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “might”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “seek”, or “should”, or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or comparable terminology. 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.

The assumptions underlying the guidance provided for 2022 include revenue growth from the acceleration in housing demand in our primary markets; improved product mix; increased pricing; impact from foreign exchange; and margin expansion from volume, pricing, and productivity, partially offset by higher expenses related to material and freight inflation and SG&A. Additionally, the outlook does not include the impact of potential acquisitions or divestitures and assumes no new COVID-19 lockdowns or restrictions, which could unfavorably impact our operations, labor availability, and supply chain continuity.

Risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements include risks associated with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the company and our employees, customers, and suppliers, and other factors, including the factors discussed in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The forward-looking statements included in this release are made as of the date hereof, and except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify any forward-looking statements to reflect events, new information or circumstances occurring after the date of this release.

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. The variability of these items may have a significant impact on our future GAAP results.

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 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), adjusted for the following items: loss from discontinued operations, net of tax; equity earnings of non-consolidated entities; income tax (benefit) expense; depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; impairment and restructuring charges; gain on previously held shares of equity investment; (gain) loss on sale of property and equipment; share-based compensation expense; non-cash foreign exchange transaction/translation (income) loss; other non-cash items; other items; and costs related to debt restructuring and debt refinancing. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

We present several financial metrics in “core” terms, which exclude the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months. We use core adjusted EBITDA, which we define as adjusted EBITDA excluding the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months. We define core revenue as net revenue excluding the impact of foreign exchange and acquisitions completed in the last twelve months. Our use of core margin is defined as core adjusted EBITDA divided by core revenue. These “core” metrics assist management, investors, and analysts in understanding the organic performance of the operations.

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. We also present net debt leverage because it is a key financial metric that is used by management to assess the balance sheet risk of the company. We define net debt leverage as net debt (total principal debt outstanding less unrestricted cash) divided by adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve month period.

Adjusted net income represents net income adjusted for certain items as presented in our reconciliation of non-GAAP, including the after-tax impact of i) non-cash foreign currency (gains) losses, ii) impairment and restructuring charges, iii) one-time non-cash gains, and iv) other non-recurring expenses associated with mergers and acquisitions 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 adjusted effective tax rate.

Other companies may compute these measures differently. Non-GAAP metrics should not be considered as alternatives to any other measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this release may not sum precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures.
