American Woodmark Corporation announces first quarter results

August 30, 2022

WINCHESTER, Virginia (August 30, 2022) -- American Woodmark Corporation (NASDAQ: AMWD) (the "Company") today announced results for its first quarter of fiscal 2023 which ended July 31, 2022.

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased $100.3 million, or 22.7%, to $542.9 million compared with the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. The Company experienced growth in all sales channels during the first quarter of fiscal 2023 versus the prior year period.

Net income was $20.1 million ($1.21 per diluted share) for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared with net income of $3.0 million ($0.18 per diluted share) in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased due to an increase in net sales largely as a result of price increases and increased efficiencies, partially offset by higher material and logistics costs.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased $24.4 million, or 76.0%, to $56.5 million, or 10.4% of net sales, compared to $32.1 million, or 7.3% of net sales, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Cash provided by operating activities for the first three months of fiscal 2023 was $37.3 million and free cash flow totaled $32.7 million. Cash flows were positively impacted by the increase in net income and higher accrued expenses. As of July 31, 2022, the Company had $33.7 million of cash on hand with no term loan debt maturities until July 2023 plus access to $239.4 million of additional availability under its revolving loan facility. The Company paid down a net of $20.6 million of its debt during the first three months of the current fiscal year.

"During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, our teams delivered sales growth of 22.7%, improved adjusted EBITDA by 76.0% to $56.5 million, and generated free cash flow of over $32 million," said Scott Culbreth, President and CEO. "We committed to improving our results as price realization started to better match inflationary impacts and we improved our costs through operating efficiency initiatives. Our team has remained resilient and focused and I want to thank them for their efforts in delivering these results."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have reported our financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In addition, we have discussed our financial results using the non-GAAP measures described below.

Management believes all of these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional means of analyzing the current period's results against the corresponding prior period's results. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin

We use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in evaluating the performance of our business, and we use each in the preparation of our annual operating budgets and as indicators of business performance and profitability. We believe EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin allow us to readily view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons and identify strategies to improve operating performance.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude (1) income tax expense, (2) interest expense, net, (3) depreciation and amortization expense, (4) amortization of customer relationship intangibles and trademarks, (5) expenses related to the RSI acquisition and the subsequent restructuring charges that the Company incurred related to the acquisition, (6) non-recurring restructuring charges, (7) stock-based compensation expense, (8) gain/loss on asset disposals, (9) change in fair value of foreign exchange forward contracts and (10) net gain/loss on debt forgiveness and modification. We believe Adjusted EBITDA, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, is useful for investors because management uses Adjusted EBITDA in evaluating the performance of our business.

We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted EPS per diluted share

We use Adjusted EPS per diluted share in evaluating the performance of our business and profitability. Management believes that this measure provides useful information to investors by offering additional ways of viewing the Company's results by providing an indication of performance and profitability excluding the impact of unusual and/or non-cash items. We define Adjusted EPS per diluted share as diluted earnings per share excluding the per share impact of (1) expenses related to the RSI acquisition and the subsequent restructuring charges that the Company incurred related to the RSI acquisition, (2) non-recurring restructuring charges, (3) the amortization of customer relationship intangibles, (4) pension settlement charges, and (5) the tax benefit of RSI acquisition expenses and subsequent restructuring charges, the net gain on debt forgiveness and modification and the amortization of customer relationship intangibles and trademarks. The amortization of intangible assets is driven by the RSI acquisition and will recur in future periods. Management has determined that excluding amortization of intangible assets from our definition of Adjusted EPS per diluted share will better help it evaluate the performance of our business and profitability and we have also received similar feedback from some of our investors.


Free cash flow

To better understand trends in our business, we believe that it is helpful to subtract amounts for capital expenditures consisting of cash payments for property, plant and equipment and cash payments for investments in displays from cash flows from continuing operations which is how we define free cash flow. Management believes this measure gives investors an additional perspective on cash flow from operating activities in excess of amounts required for reinvestment. It also provides a measure of our ability to repay our debt obligations.


Net leverage

Net leverage is a performance measure that we believe provides investors a more complete understanding of our leverage position and borrowing capacity after factoring in cash and cash equivalents that eventually could be used to repay outstanding debt.

We define net leverage as net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) divided by the trailing 12 months Adjusted EBITDA.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures and the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are set forth on the following tables:
