Patrick Industries, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

ELKHART, Ind., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrick Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: PATK), a major manufacturer and distributor of component and building products for the recreational vehicle ("RV"), marine, manufactured housing ("MH"), and industrial markets, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2020.

Net sales for the second quarter of 2020 decreased $189.2 million, or 30.8%, to $424.0 million from $613.2 million in the same quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to business disruption in our end markets related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting temporary shutdown of certain plants in April and early May in alignment with our OEM customers' shutdown schedules, and associated lost production and shipping days.

Patrick reported operating income of $12.1 million, a decrease of 73.2%, or $33.1 million, from $45.2 million reported in the second quarter of 2019. Net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $0.7 million compared to $27.4 million in the second quarter of 2019. Net income per diluted share was $0.03 for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $1.18 for the second quarter of 2019. The second quarter 2020 results include cash and non-cash non-recurring pretax charges related to COVID-19 and other items of approximately $4.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share.

Net sales for the six months ended June 28, 2020 decreased 17.0%, or $208.1 million, to $1,013.3 million from $1,221.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Operating income for the six months ended June 28, 2020 was $51.4 million, a decrease of 36.6%, or $29.7 million, from the same period of 2019. Net income for the first six months of 2020 was $21.9 million compared to net income of $48.3 million for the first six months of 2019, and net income per diluted share for the first six months of 2020 was $0.95 per diluted share compared to $2.07 for the first six months of 2019.

"We are pleased with our operating and financial performance during the second quarter and the tremendous flexibility and adaptability of our team as we navigated significant uncertainty and production shutdowns in both our leisure lifestyle and housing and industrial markets," said Andy Nemeth, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In particular, the RV industry experienced a five-week production shutdown, while various marine OEMs had production shutdowns ranging from one to five weeks. Our team took quick, disciplined and focused actions to reduce our fixed cost structure to align with our revenue stream starting at the end of the first quarter and during the second quarter. This helped position us to mitigate significant headwinds caused by COVID-19 during the second quarter, while strengthening and solidifying our operating platform to address ongoing uncertainty related to the pandemic. In the latter half of the second quarter, rising demand in our RV, marine, and MH markets benefited from an increase in interest from new consumers in addition to those already in the retail pipeline. We expect this momentum to continue into the second half of 2020. Additionally, we believe that the continued resilience and subsequent surge in retail demand in these markets have further reduced dealer inventories from what we believe were already at a low point heading into the 2020 selling season."

Second Quarter 2020 Sales by Market Sector (all metrics compared to Second Quarter 2019 unless otherwise noted)

RV (48% of Sales)

    --  Revenues of $204.1 million decreased 40%, while RV industry wholesale
        unit shipments for the quarter declined 35%;
    --  RV content per wholesale unit (on a trailing twelve-month basis)
        decreased 2% to $3,086.

Marine (14% of Sales)

    --  Revenues of $59.0 million decreased 34%, while marine powerboat industry
        wholesale unit shipments decreased an estimated 39%;
    --  Marine powerboat content per retail unit (on a trailing twelve-month
        basis) decreased 13% to an estimated $1,439.

MH (21% of Sales)

    --  Revenues of $90.3 million decreased 18%, with a 17% decrease in MH
        industry wholesale unit shipments, according to Company estimates;
    --  MH content per wholesale unit (on a trailing twelve-month basis)
        increased 16% to an estimated $4,529.

Industrial (17% of Sales)

    --  Revenues of $70.6 million decreased 2%;
    --  In residential housing, the Company's primary industrial market, new
        housing starts decreased 17% in the second quarter of 2020.

The Company's content per unit in the RV, marine and MH market sectors was negatively impacted by COVID-19 in the second quarter of 2020 as manufacturers curtailed production in April and early May, while continuing to ship finished product.

COVID-19 Business Impact

Following a temporary suspension of operations at certain of the Company's facilities in late March, April and early May, our plants started to incrementally increase production levels as demand began to recover in our end markets by mid-May, with the majority of our direct labor workforce returning to production. As plants resumed operations, the Company implemented extensive safety protocols in alignment with federal, state and local guidelines to provide a safe working environment for its team members.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Patrick generated cash flow from operations of $39.4 million for the six months ended June 28, 2020, a decrease of 58% compared to the prior year, which primarily reflected a reduction in net income due to pandemic-related business disruptions, strategically carrying additional inventories to ensure our ability to support our customers once they resumed production, and an increase in accounts receivable which, due to the timing of customer payments, did not reflect approximately $15 million of collections within two business days following the quarter end. Capital expenditures during the six months ended June 28, 2020 were $11.3 million, 38% lower than in the prior year period, reflecting a higher level of strategic project spending in the first six months of 2019 and the Company's efforts to reduce non-essential capital expenditures during April and May 2020 in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company expects to return to previous levels of capital expenditures in the latter half of 2020 reflecting expectations for increased demand in its end markets.

The Company returned $5.8 million to shareholders in the form of quarterly dividends during the second quarter of 2020 in alignment with its dividend policy.

The Company's net debt at the end of the quarter was approximately $593 million. Available liquidity, comprised of borrowing availability under the Company's credit facility and $111.1 million of cash on hand, was approximately $521 million, with no major debt maturities until 2023.

2020 Outlook

"Momentum in our RV and marine markets continues to be strong, reflecting the value proposition of outdoor recreation and the ability to spend quality time with family and friends in a COVID and post-COVID environment," Mr. Nemeth said. "In addition, our MH and industrial markets are benefitting from low interest rates, pent up demand for affordable housing, and a tight U.S. housing market. With increased visibility into our four primary end markets, we believe we will have opportunities to quickly pivot and invest strategically in our acquisition pipeline and existing businesses to support the growth of our OEM customers. At the same time, our highest priority remains the safety and well-being of our incredibly talented and dedicated team members, who have been working tirelessly to serve our customers within all of our end markets."

Mr. Nemeth continued, "Despite the ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we are optimistic about our business outlook given the trajectory of our end markets and our flexible, highly variable cost structure which, along with our strong liquidity and balance sheet, position us to navigate a variety of economic scenarios with the goal of taking care of our customers and team members at the highest level."
