Press release

American Woodmark Corporation announces fourth quarter results

May 26, 2022

WINCHESTER, Virginia (May 26, 2022) -- American Woodmark Corporation (NASDAQ: AMWD) (the "Company") today announced results for its fourth fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2022, and its fiscal year ended April 30, 2022.

Net sales for the fourth fiscal quarter increased $28.3 million, or 6.0%, to $501.7 million compared with the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.  The Company experienced growth across all sales channels during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 as market demand remained strong.  Net sales for the current fiscal year increased $113.2 million, or 6.5%, to $1,857.2 million from the prior fiscal year. 

Net income was $14.5 million ($0.87 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 compared with $3.6 million ($0.21 per diluted share) in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.  Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 increased $10.9 million due to an increase in net sales and the absence of a pre-tax loss on debt modification of $13.8 million incurred in the fourth quarter of the prior year, partially offset by higher material and logistics costs.  Net loss for the current fiscal year was $29.7 million ($1.79 per diluted share) compared with net income of $61.2 million ($3.59 per diluted share) for the prior fiscal year.  Net income for fiscal 2022 decreased primarily due to onetime pension settlement charges of $68.5 million related to the termination of the Company's pension plan, while the Company also experienced continued pressures in raw material increases, supply chain disruptions and continued labor challenges.  Adjusted EPS per diluted share was $1.38 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 compared with $1.32 in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year and $3.29 for the current fiscal year compared with $6.54 for the prior fiscal year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth fiscal quarter was $44.5 million, or 8.9% of net sales, compared to $48.2 million, or 10.2% of net sales, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.  Adjusted EBITDA for the current fiscal year was $138.0 million, or 7.4% of net sales, compared to $226.5 million, or 13.0% of net sales, for the prior fiscal year.

"Our teams delivered sales growth across all channels for the fiscal fourth quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA margins of 8.9% for the fiscal fourth quarter were the strongest of the fiscal year, although they were negatively impacted by rising fuel costs and material inflation.  We are in process or have completed, depending upon the channel, an additional set of pricing actions that will further offset inflationary impacts beginning in July," said Scott Culbreth, President and CEO.  "We expect significant Adjusted EBITDA margin improvement in fiscal year 2023 versus current levels as price realization better matches inflationary impacts, we improve costs through productivity initiatives, and we increase our production levels as staffing improves."

Cash provided by operating activities for the current fiscal year was $24.4 million and free cash flow totaled $(27.1) million.  As of April 30, 2022, the Company had $22.3 million of cash on hand with $237.5 million in term loan debt and $263 million drawn on the revolving credit facility plus access to $237 million of additional availability under its revolving credit facility.  The Company paid down a net of $13.5 million of its term loan facility during the current fiscal year and completed $25.0 million of share repurchases.

Effective May 1, 2021, the Company changed its accounting method for inventory costing for inventories which previously utilized a last-in, first-out ("LIFO") basis to a first-in, first-out ("FIFO") basis.  All prior periods presented have been retrospectively adjusted to apply the effects of the change.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have reported our financial results in accordance with U.S. 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 acquisition of RSI Home Products, Inc. ("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, (10) net gain/loss on debt forgiveness and modification, and (11) pension settlement charges.  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 acquisition, (2) non-recurring restructuring charges, (3) the amortization of customer relationship intangibles and trademarks, (4) net gain/loss on debt forgiveness and modification, (5) pension settlement charges, and (6) the tax benefit of RSI acquisition expenses and subsequent restructuring charges, the net gain/loss 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:
