Griffon Corporation Announces Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

NEW YORK--()--Griffon Corporation (“Griffon” or the “Company”) (NYSE:GFF) today reported results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2015.

“We finished our fiscal year with strong fourth quarter results. We are executing our strategy well, driving record fiscal year revenue and adjusted EPS growth of 43%. In the year ahead, we are excited to build on this momentum.”

Fourth quarter revenue totaled $502 million, decreasing 4% from the prior year quarter; excluding the impact of foreign currency, revenue increased 1%. Telephonics Corporation ("Telephonics") revenue increased 9% over the prior year quarter, while Home & Building Products (“HBP”) and Clopay Plastic Products Company, Inc. (“PPC”) revenue decreased 4% and 15%, respectively.

For the current quarter, Segment adjusted EBITDA totaled $55.4 million, increasing 8% from the prior year quarter of $51.3 million. Excluding the impact of foreign currency of $2.5 million, Segment adjusted EBITDA increased 13%. Segment adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest income and expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, unallocated amounts (mainly corporate overhead), restructuring charges and acquisition-related expenses.

Fourth quarter net income totaled $10.8 million, or $0.24 per share, compared to $7.9 million, or $0.16 per share, in the prior year quarter. Current quarter results included discrete tax benefits of $0.3 million or $0.01 per share. The prior year quarter included restructuring costs of $4.2 million ($2.6 million, net of tax or $0.05 per share), acquisition costs of $0.8 million ($0.5 million, net of tax or $0.01 per share), benefit of debt extinguishment on full year effective tax rate of $1.5 million or $0.03 per share and discrete tax benefits of $3.1 million, or $0.06 per share. Excluding these items from both periods, current quarter adjusted net income was $10.5 million, or $0.23 per share, compared to $6.4 million, or $0.13 per share, in the prior year quarter. Excluding both the discrete tax benefit and the unfavorable impact of foreign currency, adjusted current quarter net income would have been $11.7 million, an 82% increase over the prior year quarter, or $0.26 per share.

Ronald J. Kramer, Chief Executive Officer, commented “We finished our fiscal year with strong fourth quarter results. We are executing our strategy well, driving record fiscal year revenue and adjusted EPS growth of 43%. In the year ahead, we are excited to build on this momentum."

For the full year 2015, revenue totaled $2,016 million, increasing 1% over the prior year; excluding the impact of foreign currency, revenue increased 5%. HBP and Telephonics revenue increased 7% and 3%, respectively, while PPC revenue decreased 10%, all in comparison to the prior year.

For the full year 2015, Segment adjusted EBITDA totaled $204.4 million, increasing 7% compared to the prior year result of $191.0 million. Excluding the impact of foreign currency of $7.6 million, Segment adjusted EBITDA increased 11%.

For the full year 2015, net income totaled $34.3 million, or $0.73 per share, compared to a loss of $0.2 million, or $0.00 per share, in the prior year. Current year results included discrete tax benefits of $0.1 million.

Segment Operating Results

Home & Building Products

Revenue in the current quarter totaled $245 million, decreasing 4% compared to the prior year quarter, reflecting a 5% unfavorable foreign currency impact. The AMES Companies, Inc. (“AMES”) revenue decreased 10% reflecting a 9% unfavorable foreign currency impact. Clopay Building Products Company, Inc. ("CBP") revenue was consistent with the prior year quarter; foreign currency was 1% unfavorable.

Fourth quarter Segment adjusted EBITDA was $27.0 million, increasing 26% compared to the prior year quarter, driven by savings related to the AMES plant consolidation initiative completed at the end of the 2015 first quarter and favorable CBP mix; foreign currency was 15% unfavorable.

Revenue in 2015 totaled $1,052 million, increasing 7% compared to the prior year reflecting a 5% contribution from the Cyclone (acquired in May 2014) and Northcote (acquired in December 2013) acquisitions, favorable mix, improved CBP volume and an unfavorable foreign currency impact of 3%. AMES revenue increased 6%, mainly driven by the inclusion of Northcote and Cyclone results contributing 10%, and improved North American pots and planter and Canadian wheelbarrow sales; foreign currency was 4% unfavorable. CBP revenue increased 9% from the prior year, primarily due to improved volume of 5% and favorable mix of 5%; foreign currency was 1% unfavorable.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for 2015 was $94.2 million, increasing 22% compared to the prior year. The increase was primarily due to the full year contribution from AMES acquisitions of 10%, favorable product mix and improved CBP volume, and savings related to the AMES plant consolidation initiative completed at the end of the 2015 first quarter. Segment adjusted EBITDA included an unfavorable foreign currency impact of 8%.

In 2014, SG&A included $3.2 million of acquisition costs related to AMES acquisitions.

In 2014, HBP recognized $1.9 million in restructuring and related exit costs related to the AMES U.S. plant consolidation initiative undertaken in January 2013 and completed at the end of the 2015 first quarter. There were no such charges in the current year. Management continues to estimate that the AMES initiative will result in annualized cash savings exceeding $10.0 million; realization of expected savings began in the 2015 second quarter.

On October 15, 2015, CBP announced plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Troy, Ohio. The expansion reflects increased customer demand for its core products, and our success in bringing new technologies to market. The project includes improvements to its existing one million square foot building, as well as adding 200,000 square feet and new manufacturing equipment. The project is expected to be completed in 2016.

Telephonics

Revenue in the current quarter totaled $126 million, increasing 9% from the prior year quarter, primarily driven by Identification Friend and Foe ("IFF") product lines and increased revenue associated with various international radar programs.

Fourth quarter Segment adjusted EBITDA was $15.7 million, decreasing 11% from the prior year quarter, primarily due to unfavorable program mix from decreased sales of airborne intercommunication products associated with the C-17 program, partially offset by reduced operating expenses.

Revenue in 2015 totaled $431 million, increasing 3% compared to the prior year period primarily driven by Multi-Mode ASW and IFF product lines, partially offset by decreased sales of airborne intercommunication products associated with the C-17 program.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for 2015 was $53.0 million, decreasing 8% from the prior year, primarily due to unfavorable program mix from decreased revenue on airborne intercommunication products, partially offset by reduced operating expenses.

Contract backlog totaled $442 million at September 30, 2015, compared to $494 million at September 30, 2014, with approximately 73% expected to be fulfilled within the next twelve months. The decrease in backlog reflects the timing of various international contract awards associated with radar and surveillance opportunities; international awards often take longer to develop.

Plastic Products

Revenue totaled $131 million, decreasing 15% compared to the prior year quarter, reflecting an unfavorable foreign currency impact of 10% and a 7% reduction in volume primarily due to product rationalization, partially offset by a 2% favorable mix. Resin pricing had no material impact on revenue in the current quarter. PPC adjusts selling prices based on underlying resin costs on a delayed basis.

Segment adjusted EBITDA was $12.7 million, increasing 2% from the prior year quarter with the impact of resin pricing pass through of $0.4 million and reduced volume from product rationalizations more than offset by the favorable impact of foreign currency of 7%.

Revenue in 2015 totaled $533 million, decreasing 10% compared to the prior year, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency of $46.1 million or 8% and reduced volume of 2% primarily due to product rationalization. Resin pricing had no material impact on revenue in the current year.

Segment adjusted EBITDA for 2015 was $57.1 million, increasing 1% from the prior year, driven by a $4.6 million change in the impact of resin pricing pass through, partially offset by reduced volume. The unfavorable impact of foreign currency was 2%.

Taxes

The Company reported pretax income for the year ended September 30, 2015 compared to pretax loss for the prior year. In 2015, the Company recognized a tax provision of 36.1% compared to a benefit of 96.9% in 2014.

The 2015 rate reflected net discrete benefits of $0.1 million compared to net discrete benefits of $4.7 million in 2014. In both years, the discrete items arose primarily from the filing of returns, conclusion of tax audits in various jurisdictions and the impact of enacted tax law changes. Excluding discrete items, the effective tax rates for 2015 and 2014 would have been a provision of 36.2% and a benefit of 15.1%, respectively.

Balance Sheet and Capital Expenditures

At September 30, 2015, the Company had cash and equivalents of $52.0 million, total debt outstanding of $843.6 million, net of discounts and deferred costs, and $198 million available for borrowing under its revolving credit facility. Capital expenditures in 2015 were $74 million.

Share Repurchases

In each of May 2014, March 2015 and July 2015, Griffon's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $50 million of Griffon's outstanding common stock. Under these programs, the Company may purchase shares in the open market, including pursuant to a 10b5-1 plan, or in privately negotiated transactions.
