Thursday, February 15, 2018 8:06:00 AM ET
Patrick Industries, Inc. (PATK ), a major manufacturer and distributor of component and building products for the recreational vehicle ("RV"), manufactured housing ("MH"), marine and industrial markets, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.
Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results
Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2017 increased $151.7 million or 47%, to $475.6 million from $323.9 million in the same quarter of 2016. The increase was attributable to industry growth, acquisitions, geographic expansion efforts, and market share gains. The Companys revenues from the RV industry, which represented 68% of fourth quarter 2017 sales, increased 44%, while RV industry wholesale unit shipments increased approximately 19% in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the prior year. Revenues from the MH industry, which represented 13% of fourth quarter 2017 sales, increased 30% from the fourth quarter of 2016, while wholesale unit shipments in the MH industry rose approximately 15% for the same period. Revenues from the industrial market, which is tied primarily to residential housing, commercial construction, and institutional furniture spending, increased 37%. The industrial market accounted for 11% of the Companys fourth quarter 2017 sales. Revenues from the marine industry represented 8% of the Companys fourth quarter 2017 sales and nearly tripled compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.
For the fourth quarter of 2017, Patrick reported operating income of $34.1 million, an increase of 54% or $12.0 million, from the $22.1 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2016. Net income in the fourth quarter of 2017 increased 114% to $29.0 million from $13.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, and net income per diluted share increased 97% to $1.16 from $0.59. For the fourth quarter of 2017, net income includes the impact of a one-time tax benefit of $7.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, due to the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Todd Cleveland, Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased with our operating and financial performance in the fourth quarter, which was driven by the continued strength in all of our primary markets, the continued dedication and commitment of our team members, targeted geographic and product expansions, and the successful execution of strategic acquisitions, including our latest acquisitions of Indiana Transport, LMI, and Nickell Moulding in the fourth quarter of 2017."
"Momentum and discipline have remained strong in the RV industry, with double-digit quarterly wholesale unit shipment growth in each quarter of 2017 and full year shipments finishing the year at over 504,000 units," stated Andy Nemeth, President. "At the same time, the increase in wholesale production levels is aligned with RV retail traffic, sales increases, and seasonal demand patterns, supporting balanced retail inventories in anticipation of a solid 2018 selling season. Additionally, the marine powerboat retail market experienced gains over the prior year with unit sales up an estimated 6% in 2017. The ongoing strength in demographic trends and the allure of the outdoor, leisure family-oriented lifestyle continue to draw a strong influx of new buyers into both the RV and marine markets. Our housing and industrial business growth has continued as well, bolstered by similar demographic trends, low interest rates, improving consumer credit, and a strengthening economy and jobs environment."
Full Year 2017 Financial Results
Net sales for 2017 increased approximately $414 million or 34%, to $1.6 billion from $1.2 billion in 2016. The Companys revenues from the RV industry, which represented 69% of its 2017 sales, increased 28%, while RV industry wholesale unit shipments increased approximately 17% in 2017 from 2016. Additionally, revenues from the MH industry, which represented 13% of the Companys 2017 sales, rose 29% from 2016, while MH industry wholesale unit shipments increased approximately 14%. Revenues from the industrial market increased 27% and benefited primarily from acquisitions and market share gains, particularly related to the residential housing market. The industrial market, which accounted for 11% of the Companys 2017 sales, saw new housing starts increase by approximately 2% for 2017 compared to the prior year. The Companys revenues from the marine industry represented 7% of its 2017 sales and more than tripled year-over-year.
The Companys RV content per unit (excluding revenues from the marine market which were previously included with RV revenues) for the full year 2017 increased approximately 9% to $2,232 from $2,039 for 2016. The MH content per unit for the full year 2017 increased approximately 16% to $2,289 from $1,966 for 2016.
For 2017, Patrick reported operating income of $121.9 million, an increase of $31.1 million or 34%, from the $90.8 million reported in 2016. Net income in 2017 increased 54% to $85.7 million from $55.6 million in 2016, and net income per diluted share increased 43% to $3.48 from $2.43.
For 2017, net income includes the impact of the previously mentioned one-time tax benefit of $7.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, resulting from the recently enacted tax legislation. In addition, 2017 net income and net income per diluted share were increased by $6.0 million and $0.23, respectively, as a result of adopting the share-based payment awards accounting standard. For 2016, adoption of this standard increased net income by $1.3 million or $0.05 per diluted share.
Total debt, net of cash on hand, increased by $85.0 million from $266.1 million at December 31, 2016 to $351.1 million at December 31, 2017, primarily reflecting the Companys investment of $274.3 million, in the aggregate, for acquisitions and capital expenditures in 2017, partially offset by net proceeds of $93.3 million from the Companys common stock offering in March 2017 and operating cash flows.
Patricks total assets increased $331.6 million to $866.6 million at December 31, 2017 from $535.0 million at December 31, 2016, primarily reflecting the addition of acquisition-related assets and overall growth.
As previously announced in January 2018, the Companys Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program that authorizes the repurchase of up to $50 million of the Companys common stock over a 24-month period.
In addition, as previously announced, on January 22, 2018, the Company completed an offering of $172.5 million aggregate principal amount of its Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 ("Convertible Notes") in a private placement. Net proceeds from the issuance of the Convertible Notes were approximately $154 million after deducting purchase discounts and commissions, estimated offering expenses, and the net cost of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions associated with the offering to reduce potential dilution. In conjunction with the Convertible Notes offering, the Company entered into amendments to its credit agreement to permit the issuance of the Convertible Notes and to expand its credit facility by $50 million to $500 million.
"The capital capacity and flexibility provided by both the note offering and the expansion of the credit facility position us with the dry powder to continue to execute on our long-term strategic growth initiatives and disciplined capital allocation strategy," Mr. Nemeth stated. "Consistent with past practices, we intend to put our strong cash flows and financing platform to work and continue to invest in our overall business model and brands through acquisitions, strategic capital expenditures, geographic and product line expansions, and workforce planning, engagement and development initiatives to support our organizational strategic agenda. In addition, we believe that the businesses we acquired in 2017 are well-positioned to enhance their brands and deliver revenue and profitability growth."
"As we look ahead to 2018 and beyond, we remain optimistic about the long-term growth potential in the RV and marine industries and we continue to increase our market penetration in the housing and industrial sector, achieving market share gains and adding additional content per unit. We believe that the strength of our operational and financial foundation, our customer first performance-oriented culture, and the exceptional talent and passion of our more than 6,800 team members will continue to position us to execute on our strategic plan to deliver strong growth on both the top and bottom line, drive shareholder value, and exceed our customers expectations," Mr. Cleveland further stated.
