Patrick Industries, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

ELKHART, Ind., Oct. 29, 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 third quarter ended September 27, 2020.

Net sales in the third quarter of 2020 increased $134.5 million, or 24%, to $700.7 million from $566.2 million in the third quarter of 2019. The consolidated net sales increase in the third quarter of 2020 was attributed to sales increases in our RV, marine and industrial markets.

Operating income increased $22.4 million, or 60%, to $59.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 from $37.4 million in 2019. As a percentage of net sales, operating income was 8.5% in the third quarter of 2020 versus 6.6% in the same period in 2019.

Net income increased $16.0 million, or 75%, to $37.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $21.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. Net income per diluted share increased $0.70, or 76%, to $1.62 for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $0.92 for the third quarter of 2019.

Net sales in the first nine months of 2020 decreased $73.6 million, or 4%, to $1,714.0 million from $1,787.6 million in the first nine months of 2019. Operating income decreased $7.3 million, or 6%, to $111.2 million in the first nine months of 2020 from $118.5 million in 2019. As a percentage of net sales, operating income was 6.5% in the first nine months of 2020 versus 6.6% in the same period in 2019. Net income for the first nine months of 2020 was $59.2 million compared to net income of $69.6 million for the first nine months of 2019, and net income per diluted share for the first nine months of 2020 was $2.57 compared to $2.99 for the first nine months of 2019. Year-to-date operating results include the impact of industry and statewide shutdowns implemented in response to COVID-19 late in the first quarter of 2020 and through early May 2020.

"Our leisure lifestyle markets continued to rebound in the third quarter with a continuation of positive secular trends and tailwinds in on-the-road domestic travel and outdoor activities," said Andy Nemeth, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Strong demand in our RV, marine and industrial markets resulted in improved profitability as we leveraged our fixed cost structure, despite direct labor inefficiencies due to the significant snap back in production levels which have exceeded pre-pandemic levels. The strategic acquisitions we completed in the third quarter of Inland Plywood, Synergy RV Transport and Front Range Stone capitalize on recent momentum, support customer growth and expand our product offerings in our end markets."

Third Quarter 2020 Revenue by Market Sector
(all metrics compared to Third Quarter 2019 unless otherwise noted)

RV (60% Revenue)

    --  Revenue of $421.2 million increased 36% while wholesale RV unit
        shipments increased 33%
    --  Content per wholesale RV unit (on a trailing twelve-month basis) was
        relatively flat at approximately $3,140

Marine (14% Revenue)

    --  Revenue of $93.4 million increased 25% while estimated wholesale
        powerboat shipments decreased 4%
    --  Estimated content per wholesale powerboat unit (on a trailing
        twelve-month basis) increased 16% to $1,915

MH (15% Revenue)

    --  Revenue of $107.8 million decreased 1% while estimated wholesale MH unit
        shipments decreased 2%
    --  Estimated content per wholesale MH unit (on a trailing twelve-month

"Outdoor recreation has and continues to see, a significant increase in popularity as a result of the COVID-19 environment," said Mr. Nemeth. "Our leisure lifestyle markets-RV and marine-provide ideal outlets for multiple generations of friends and family to spend quality time together in both the COVID-19 and post COVID-19 environment. Our industrial market has benefited from an increase in housing starts and home improvement activity, and our MH market, while affected by short-term labor constraints, has recovered from COVID-19 disruptions with increasing backlogs."

COVID-19 Business Impact

As previously disclosed, the Company suspended operations at certain of its facilities from late March 2020 through early May 2020 as a result of production shutdowns by certain OEM customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company successfully implemented CDC, state and local safety best practices at its facilities as we began to increase production levels in early May, and we continue to provide a healthy and safe environment for our team members as they work to safely accommodate increased demand in our end markets.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Operating cash flow for the third quarter of 2020 was $73.4 million, an increase of 160%, from $28.2 million in the third quarter of 2019. Operating cash flows of $112.8 million for the nine months ended September 27, 2020 decreased 8% compared to the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact to net income related to COVID-19 business disruptions that largely affected second quarter 2020 operating results. The Company invested $99.2 million in business acquisitions in the third quarter of 2020 to expand its product offerings and geographic presence in the RV, marine and industrial end markets, with year-to-date investments in business acquisitions totaling $124.0 million. Capital expenditures in the third quarter of 2020 totaled $10.9 million, an increase of 168%, compared to $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in capital spending is facilitating strategic capacity expansion in certain of our facilities in response to, and in anticipation of, increased demand in our end markets that began in the latter half of the second quarter of 2020, and is currently expected to continue into and through 2021. The Company currently expects capital expenditures to total approximately $35 million for full year 2020.

In alignment with our dividend policy and capital allocation strategy, the Company returned $5.7 million to shareholders in the third quarter of 2020 in the form of dividends, with year-to-date dividends totaling $17.3 million, and resumed share repurchases with 88,950 shares repurchased in the amount of $4.7 million during the third quarter of 2020 and 545,105 shares repurchased year-to-date in the amount of $20.3 million.

The Company's net debt at the end of the quarter was approximately $640 million, resulting in a net leverage ratio of 2.2x (as calculated in accordance with our credit agreement). Available liquidity, comprised of borrowing availability under the Company's credit facility and $62.3 million of cash on hand, was approximately $473 million, with no major debt maturities until 2023.

Business Outlook

"Momentum in our RV and marine sectors is expected to remain strong, and our housing and industrial markets are experiencing tailwinds with low interest rates, an increase in home improvement activity, and urban to suburban and rural relocation trends," said Mr. Nemeth. "We have strategically and aggressively pulled forward certain capital expenditure initiatives to ensure that we are in the best position possible with continued available capacity to support and grow with our customers for the 2021 model season and beyond. Our strong cash flows and liquidity allow us to invest in our businesses, continue to deploy strategic capital, and capitalize on growth opportunities as they arise in support of expansion necessary to serve our primary end markets over the long-term."

Conference Call Webcast

As previously announced, Patrick Industries will host an online webcast of its third quarter 2020 earnings conference call that can be accessed on the Company's website,, under "Investor Relations," on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time.

Use of Financial Metrics

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company also provides financial metrics, such as net leverage ratio, RV content per unit, estimated marine and MH content per unit, net debt and available liquidity, which we believe are important measures of the Company's business performance. These metrics should not be considered alternatives to U.S. GAAP. Our computations of net leverage ratio, content per unit, net debt and available liquidity may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. You should not consider these metrics in isolation or as substitutes for an analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Beginning in the third quarter of 2020, we calculate marine content per unit based on estimated wholesale powerboat unit shipments, which we believe better represents the relationship between our sales and marine OEM production, rather than based on estimated retail powerboat unit sales.
