Continental Building Products Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

August 01, 2019

HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Continental Building Products, Inc. (NYSE: CBPX) (the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of gypsum wallboard and complementary finishing products, announced today results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Highlights of Second Quarter 2019 as Compared to Second Quarter 2018

  • Net sales decreased 10.8% to $124.2 million
  • Wallboard sales volumes decreased 6.1% to 678 million square feet
  • Net income decreased to $12.8 million; adjusted net income1 was $15.1 million
  • Earnings per share decreased to $0.37; adjusted earnings per share1 decreased to $0.43
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 decreased to $32.9 million
  • Generated cash flows from operations of $30.9 million
  • Deployed $6.0 million in capital investments and $15.0 million to repurchase 589,300 shares of common stock

"We continue to focus on our Bison Way continuous improvement efforts to reduce costs and streamline operations as we confront a sluggish new home construction market that negatively impacted our second quarter results. In this environment, we continued to generate significant cash flows and return value to our shareholders during the second quarter, with share repurchases approximating 2% of our common stock," stated Jay Bachmann, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Bachmann continued, "We continue to invest in high-return capital projects to ensure we are well positioned to provide exceptional value to our customers through our low cost, highly efficient operations. We expect market conditions to improve in the second half and believe the rigorous commitment of everyone at Continental positions us to deliver additional value to our customers, while deploying our strong cash flows to produce attractive returns for our shareholders."

Second Quarter 2019 Results vs. Second Quarter 2018

Net sales of $124.2 million decreased 10.8%, compared to $139.3 million in the prior year quarter. Wallboard sales volumes decreased 6.1% to 678 million square feet (MMSF), compared to 722 million square feet (MMSF) in the prior year quarter, primarily attributable to softer demand. In addition to the lower volumes, net sales were negatively impacted by a 6.6% decrease in the average mill net price compared to the prior year quarter.

Operating income was down 36.4% to $19.4 million, compared to $30.6 million in the prior year quarter, mainly due to lower volumes and pricing. SG&A expense was $9.1 million compared to $10.4 million in the prior year quarter, or 7.3% of net sales compared to 7.5% in the prior year quarter.

Net interest expense decreased 11.1% to $2.4 million, compared to $2.7 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting higher investment income and capitalized interest, along with the benefits of lower spreads obtained on the term debt, partially offset by the rise in LIBOR.

Net income decreased $9.0 million or 41.3% to $12.8 million, or $0.37 per share, compared to $21.9 million, or $0.59 per share, in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income1, which excludes a non-cash loss on intangible asset impairment related to two trademarks, which the company discontinued the use of the branding of its products, decreased $6.8 million, or 31.0%, to $15.1 million compared to $21.9 million. Adjusted earnings per share1 decreased 27.1% to $0.43 per share compared to $0.59 per share. The $6.8 million decrease in adjusted net income1 was primarily a result of the decrease in net sales as a result of lower volumes and pricing.

Adjusted EBITDA1, which excludes the non-cash loss on intangible asset impairment, decreased $8.4 million, or 20.4% to $32.9 million from $41.4 million.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had a cash balance of $110.6 million and total outstanding borrowings of $267.5 million. During the second quarter 2019, the Company generated cash flows from operations of $30.9 million and deployed $6.0 million in capital investments.

During the second quarter 2019, the Company repurchased 589,300 shares of its common stock under its repurchase program for an aggregate purchase price of $15.0 million, representing 1.7% of its outstanding shares as of December 31, 2018. As of June 30, 2019, the Company has repurchased $189.0 million of common stock at an average price of $23.84 per share and had a remaining authorization of $111.0 million for future repurchases under the program.

Buchanan Plant Update

As previously announced, in January 2019 the Company's Buchanan, New York plant experienced a significant equipment malfunction, resulting in an outage at the plant. The plant was off-line through March 15, 2019 while repairs were made. While the Buchanan plant was down, the Company increased production at its plants in Silver Grove, Kentucky and Palatka, Florida to offset a portion of the lost production from the Buchanan plant.

The Company has standard insurance coverage that is intended to cover circumstances such as these, including business interruption insurance. The insurance coverage is designed to cover the direct costs of rebuilding the damaged equipment, costs incurred to re-direct products from the Company's other plants, and the lost contribution margin of the sales that otherwise would have been made if the plant had been operating normally.

The Company anticipates the lost operating income and EBITDA1 associated with the outage to be in the range of $4.2 to $5.2 million to compensate for the lost sales from business interruption that otherwise would have been made if the plant had been operating normally during the first quarter 2019. In the second quarter 2019, the Company recorded an initial gain of $3.2 million related to the lost sales claim. The Company is working closely with its insurance advisers and carrier to finalize the claim associated with business interruption coverage. The Company anticipates an additional $1.0 - $2.0 million on lost sales being recovered once the claim is settled. When collected and recorded, the Company expects there will be a favorable $1.0 to $2.0 million operating income and EBITDA1 impact to a future quarter.

The rebuild of property, plant and equipment damaged and related net recovery resulted in a net gain of $1.5 million.

(b)

 

Direct costs associated with the business interruption include various expenses such as additional freight to ship to customers at greater distances from other plants, additional freight costs to reroute incoming raw materials and other various costs that were incurred as a result of the Buchanan outage and are expected to be covered by our insurance policy.  The amounts reported are for the six months ending June 30, 2019.  The net recovery of direct costs associated with business interruption were netted against actual costs incurred resulting in a net impact of zero to the income statement.

(c)

 

This represents the midpoint of the estimated $4.2 - $5.2 million of insurance proceeds for the lost operating income and EBITDA1 the Company expects to receive related to the Buchanan outage.  As of June 30, 2019, the company has been paid $3.2 million by the insurance company to compensate for these lost sales from business interruption that otherwise would have been made if the plant had been operating normally.  The Company expects to receive an additional $1.0 - $2.0 million of insurance proceeds for the lost operating income and EBITDA1 related to the Buchanan outage.

Forward-Looking Outlook for the Full Year 2019

  • SG&A is expected to be in the range of $38 - $40 million, down from the previous range of $39 - $41 million.
  • Cost of goods sold inflation per unit compared to the prior year is expected to be in the range of 2% - 3%. We expect to partly offset this inflation by approximately $3 million of savings from high return capital projects.
  • Total capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $26 - $30 million, down from the previous range of $30 - $34 million.
    • Maintenance capital spending is expected to be in the range of $10 - $12 million.
    • High-return capital spending is expected to be in the range of $14 - $16 million.
    • Approximately $1.8 million incurred as a result of the Buchanan outage.
  • Depreciation and amortization is expected to be in the range of $43 - $45 million.
  • Effective tax rate is expected to be in the range of 22% - 23%.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share have been presented in this press release as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). This release presents EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share as supplemental performance measures because management believes that they facilitate a comparative assessment of the Company's operating performance relative to its performance based on results under GAAP while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance and eliminate certain charges that management believes do not reflect the Company's operations and underlying operational performance. Furthermore, the Company's Board of Directors' compensation committee uses EBITDA to evaluate management's compensation. Management also believes that EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share are useful to investors because they allow investors to view the business through the eyes of management and the Board of Directors, facilitating comparison of results across historical periods.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share in the same manner. EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per share are not measurements of the Company's financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income or earnings per share determined in accordance with GAAP or any other financial statement data presented as indicators of financial performance or liquidity, each as calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
