NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Griffon Corporation (“Griffon” or the “Company”) (NYSE:GFF) today reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 ended June 30, 2021.

Consolidated revenue for the third quarter totaled $646.8 million, a 2% increase compared to the prior year quarter revenue of $632.1 million, or 4% excluding prior year revenue of $7.9 million related to the SEG disposition.

Net income totaled $16.7 million, or $0.31 per share, compared to $21.8 million, or $0.50 per share, in the prior year quarter. Current year adjusted net income was $22.8 million, or $0.43 per share, compared to $25.9 million, or $0.59 per share, in the prior year quarter (see reconciliation of Net income to Adjusted net income for details). The current year quarter includes 8.7 million shares of common stock issued in August 2020, which reduced adjusted EPS by approximately $0.08.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was $64.8 million, decreasing 7% from the prior year quarter of $69.5 million. Unallocated amounts excluding depreciation (primarily corporate overhead) in the third quarters of 2021 and 2020 was $10.9 million and $11.1 million, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA excluding unallocated amounts totaled $75.7 million in the third quarter of 2021, decreasing 6% from the prior year of $80.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, restructuring charges, loss from debt extinguishment and acquisition related expenses, as well as other items that may affect comparability, as applicable (see reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Income before taxes).

Ronald J. Kramer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our results this quarter as our businesses continue to see strong demand and backlog despite a business environment impacted by rapidly rising costs of raw materials, transportation and labor. The Ames Strategic Initiative, coupled with price increases and efficiency programs, remain on track to drive margin expansion and shareholder value.”

Segment Operating Results

Consumer and Professional Products (“CPP”)

CPP revenue in the current quarter totaling $324.8 million decreased 1% compared to the prior year period due to reduced volume of 9%, primarily in the U.S., due to shipping delays related to availability of transportation, partially offset by favorable mix of 3% and a favorable foreign currency impact of 5%.

CPP Adjusted EBITDA in the current quarter was $29.4 million, decreasing 21% from the prior year quarter primarily from decreased revenue noted above, increased distribution and material costs coupled with the lag in realization of price increases, and COVID-19 related inefficiencies. The current quarter included a favorable foreign currency impact of 4%.

Strategic Initiative

In November 2019, Griffon announced the development of a next-generation business platform for CPP to enhance the growth, efficiency, and competitiveness of its U.S. operations, and on November 12, 2020, Griffon announced the broadening of this strategic initiative to include additional North American facilities, the AMES UK and Australia businesses, and a manufacturing facility in China.

The expanded focus of this initiative leverages the same three key development areas being executed within our U.S. operations. First, certain AMES global operations will be consolidated to optimize facilities footprint and talent. Second, strategic investments in automation and facilities expansion will be made to increase the efficiency of our manufacturing and fulfillment operations, and support e-commerce growth. Third, multiple independent information systems will be unified into a single data and analytics platform, which will serve the whole AMES global enterprise.

Expanding the roll-out of the new business platform from our AMES U.S. operations to include AMES’ global operations will extend the duration of the project by one year, with completion now expected by the end of calendar year 2023. When fully implemented, these actions will result in annual cash savings of $30 million to $35 million and a reduction in inventory of $30 million to $35 million, both based on fiscal 2020 operating levels.

The cost to implement this new business platform, over the duration of the project, will include one-time charges of approximately $65 million and capital investments of approximately $65 million. The one-time charges are comprised of $46 million of cash charges, which includes $26 million of personnel-related costs such as training, severance, and duplicate personnel costs as well as $20 million of facility and lease exit costs. The remaining $19 million of charges are non-cash and are primarily related to asset write-downs.

During the nine months ended June 30, 2021, CPP incurred pre-tax restructuring and related exit costs approximating $14.7 million. These charges were comprised of cash charges of $10.8 million and non-cash, asset-related charges of $3.9 million; the cash charges included $1.8 million for one-time termination benefits and other personnel-related costs and $9.0 million for facility exit costs. Since inception of this initiative in fiscal 2020, total cumulative charges totaled $28.3 million, comprised of cash charges of $19.8 million and non-cash, asset-related charges of $8.6 million; the cash charges included $7.4 million for one-time termination benefits and other personnel-related costs and $12.4 million for facility exit costs. Furthermore, since inception of this initiative, total capital expenditures of $14.8 million were driven by investment in CPP business intelligence systems and e-commerce facility.

Home and Building Products (“HBP”)

HBP revenue in the current quarter totaling $259.4 million increased 18% from the prior year quarter, driven by increased volume of 5%, and favorable mix and pricing of 13%.

HBP Adjusted EBITDA in the current quarter was $42.2 million, increasing 7% compared to the prior year quarter. EBITDA benefited from increased revenue noted above, partially offset by increased material costs, coupled with the lag in realization of price increases, and COVID-19 related inefficiencies.

Defense Electronics (“DE”)

DE revenue in the current quarter totaled $62.6 million, decreasing 25% from the prior year quarter. The prior year results include revenue from the SEG business of $7.9 million. Excluding the divestiture of SEG from prior year results, revenue decreased $13.5 million, or 18%. The decrease was driven by reduced volume due to the timing of deliveries on Communications and Radar systems, partially offset by volume increases on Naval & Cyber Systems.

DE Adjusted EBITDA in the current quarter was $4.1 million, remaining consistent with the prior year quarter. Excluding the divestiture of SEG from the prior year results, Adjusted EBITDA increased 9% primarily due to reduced operating expenses, including the benefit from first quarter cost reductions, and improved Naval & Cyber Systems program performance, partially offset by cost growth for Radar systems.

Contract backlog was $375.0 million at June 30, 2021 compared to $341.0 million at June 30, 2020 (excludes $9.4 million of SEG related backlog) with 66% expected to be fulfilled in the next 12 months. Backlog was approximately $370.0 million at September 30, 2020 (excludes approximately $10.0 million of SEG related backlog). During the current quarter and year-to-date periods, DE was awarded several new contracts and received incremental funding on existing contracts approximating $84 million and $189 million (excludes $5.5 million of SEG awards from the first quarter), respectively; the trailing twelve-month book-to-bill ratio was 1.1x.

Taxes

The Company reported pretax income for the quarters ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and recognized tax provisions of 42.5% and 36.7%, respectively. Excluding all items that affect comparability, the effective tax rates for the quarters ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were 31.2% and 30.8%, respectively. The current year-to-date effective tax rate was 34.1% and the rate excluding items that affect comparability was 31.1%.

Balance Sheet and Capital Expenditures

At June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and equivalents of $220.7 million and total debt outstanding of $1.06 billion, resulting in net debt of $834.9 million. Leverage, as calculated in accordance with our credit agreement, was 2.9 times EBITDA. Borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility was $362.2 million subject to certain loan covenants. Capital expenditures were $9.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Share Repurchases

As of June 30, 2021, Griffon had $58 million remaining under its Board of Directors authorized repurchase program. There were no purchases under these authorizations during the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
