 Forterra Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results
   Monday, August 05, 2019 5:30:00 PM ET

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Consolidated gross profit margin increased by 282 basis points, supported by higher average selling prices in both business segments
  • Net income of $3.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA1 of $62.5 million in line with internal plans despite lower than expected shipments in the Water business
  • Management reiterates its full year outlook

IRVING, Texas, Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Forterra, Inc. (“Forterra” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: FRTA), a leading manufacturer of water and drainage infrastructure pipe and products in the United States and Eastern Canada, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 Consolidated Results
Second quarter consolidated gross profit increased by 14% over the prior year quarter to $85.8 million. This increase was achieved despite consolidated net sales declining by 1% to $410.2 million, which was primarily driven by lower shipment volumes in the Water Pipe & Products (“Water”) segment. Average selling prices improved in both the Drainage Pipe & Products (“Drainage”) and Water segments, with gross profit margins improved by 150 and 340 basis points, respectively, over the prior year quarter. Backlogs for both businesses grew in the second quarter compared to the first quarter. Net income for the quarter was $3.0 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to net income of $7.0 million, or $0.11 per share, in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter increased by 7.6% to $62.5 million, compared to $58.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Forterra CEO Karl Watson, Jr. commented, “Our second quarter results indicate progress and momentum in our efforts to improve the profitability of our operations. We are executing well in terms of both safety and customer service, and we will sustain those fundamental commitments.  In addition, we will pursue further improvements in strategic and tactical pricing discipline as well as plant-level production efficiencies.  The strength in public infrastructure funding across our footprint, as well as continued growth in our backlogs in the current year for both the Drainage and Water businesses, give us confidence in the demand outlook for the balance of the year.  Today's results represent a move in the right direction, but we have much further to go as we work to earn a full and fair return for the products we produce and the capital we deploy."

Business Segment Results

Drainage Pipe & Products (“Drainage”) - Second Quarter 2019 Results
Drainage net sales increased to $241.7 million, compared to $222.9 million in the prior year quarter.  Net sales grew by over 8% due primarily to higher average selling prices for pipe and precast products while sales volumes remained consistent year over year.

Drainage gross profit and gross profit margin were $57.7 million and 23.9%, compared to $49.9 million and 22.4%, respectively, in the prior year quarter.  Drainage EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were $49.0 million, $52.4 million and 21.7%, respectively, compared to $48.4 million, $46.82 million and 21.0%, respectively, in the prior year quarter.  The higher gross profit and gross profit margin primarily reflect the benefit of higher average selling prices, cost controls from operational improvement initiatives, and lower rent expense, partially offset by higher input costs.  The higher EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were driven by higher gross profit, partially offset by higher general and administrative expenses primarily related to increased reserves for certain legal disputes and claims that arose in the ordinary course of our business in prior periods.

Water Pipe & Products (“Water”) - Second Quarter 2019 Results
Water net sales decreased to $168.5 million, compared to $193.2 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower sales volumes that were partially offset by improvements in average selling prices and lower raw material costs.

Despite the decline in net sales, Water gross profit and gross profit margin in the second quarter increased to $28.1 million and 16.7%, respectively, compared to $25.6 million and 13.3%, respectively, in the prior year quarter.  Water EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in the second quarter increased to $25.0 million, $25.4 million and 15.1%, respectively, compared to $24.2 million, $24.3 million and 12.6%, respectively, in the prior year quarter.  The improvements in gross profit, gross profit margin, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin were driven by higher average selling prices, lower raw material costs, as well as manufacturing efficiencies, partially offset by lower shipment volumes.

Shipments in the quarter were negatively impacted by the pace of construction project completion as well as distributors’ efforts to rebalance inventory levels.  Based on customer feedback and our backlog levels, we believe monthly shipments for the Water segment will improve in the second half of the year.  We remain focused on improving the margins and returns on capital within this business, including further improvements to its pricing and production disciplines.

Corporate and Other (“Corporate”) - Second Quarter 2019 Results
Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA loss of $20.0 million and $15.4 million, respectively, in the second quarter of 2019 compared to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA loss of $14.6 million and $13.0 million, respectively, in the prior year quarter.  On a reported basis, the increase in Corporate segment EBITDA loss was primarily driven by certain severance costs related to the change in CEO in the 2019 period.  On an adjusted basis, the year-over-year increase in Corporate EBITDA loss was in line with our internal plan and primarily reflects investments to improve certain information technology systems and business processes.

1 A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA, EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, to comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures section of this press release.
2 A reconciliation to the comparable historical calculation methodology is included in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP measures section of this press release.  All prior periods have been adjusted to reflect this change in methodology.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
As of June 30, 2019, we had cash of $16.8 million, outstanding debt on our senior term loan of $1.2 billion and a $39 million borrowing under our $300 million asset-based revolving credit facility.  In the second half, we expect to fully pay down our asset-based revolving credit facility, rebuild our cash position and make a voluntary prepayment of $30 million to $85 million on our senior term loan.

Full Year Financial Outlook
We continue to expect full year 2019 net loss will be in the range of $16 million to $38 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $170 million to $200 million.  Supporting this guidance are strength in public infrastructure spending and our positive pricing trends in both the Drainage and Water segments.  Relative to our beginning of year forecast, we expect the impact of higher average selling prices to offset the impact of lower than planned shipments in the Water segment.  Expectations for Corporate segment Adjusted EBITDA loss remain consistent with our beginning of year plans.  We remain focused on controlling overhead costs while executing commercial and operational initiatives geared toward improving operating margins and cash flow.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to our results calculated under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), in this earnings release we also present adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP measures and have been presented in this earnings release as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as the sum of net (loss), before interest expense, depreciation and amortization, income tax benefit and before (gains)/losses on the sale of property, plant and equipment, impairment and exit charges and certain other non-recurring income and expenses, such as transaction costs, inventory step-up impacting margin, non-cash compensation expense and pro-rate share of Adjusted EBITDA from equity method investee, minus earnings from equity method investee.  Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.  Prior period amounts have been adjusted to reflect the current period calculation of Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are presented in this earnings release because they are important metrics used by management as one of the means by which it assesses our financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We use Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplements to GAAP measures of performance to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, to allocate resources and to compare our performance relative to our peers.  Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are also important measures for assessing our operating results and evaluating each operating segment’s performance on a consistent basis, by excluding the impacts of depreciation, amortization, income tax expense, interest expense and other items not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Additionally, these measures, when used in conjunction with related GAAP financial measures, provide investors with additional financial analytical framework which management uses, in addition to historical operating results, as the basis for financial, operational and planning decisions and present measurements that third parties have indicated are useful in assessing the Company and its results of operations.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin have certain limitations. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to consolidated net income (loss), and in the case of our segment results, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to EBITDA, which the chief operating decision maker reviews for purposes of evaluating segment profit, or in the case of any of the non-GAAP measures, as a substitute for any other measure of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Similarly, adjusted EBITDA margin should not be considered as an alternative to gross margin or any other margin calculated in accordance with GAAP.  These measures also should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items for which these non-GAAP measures make adjustments. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are not intended to be liquidity measures because of certain limitations such as: (i) they do not reflect our cash outlays for capital expenditures or future contractual commitments; (ii) they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital; (iii) they do not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest, or principal payments, on indebtedness; (iv) they do not reflect income tax expense or the cash necessary to pay income taxes; and (v) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and these non-GAAP measures do not reflect cash requirements for such replacements.

Other companies, including other companies in our industry, may not use such measures or may calculate one or more of the measures differently than as presented in this earnings release, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure. In evaluating adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments made in the calculations below and the presentation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin should not be construed to mean that our future results will be unaffected by such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by using adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental financial metrics and in conjunction with results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
