We continue to build on our momentum and are pleased to report a 23 percent increase in year over year sales,” stated Jeff Jackson, President and Chief Executive Officer of PGT Innovations. “Significant growth in our repair and remodel sector along with solid operating performance across the portfolio resulted in another quarter of strong sales and free cash flow.”

Demand for our products continues to grow based on our deep customer relationships and increased awareness of the benefits of our impact-resistant products following last year’s hurricane season. I am proud of our team’s response to this increased demand and ability to deliver exceptional operating performance that resulted in gross margin improvement of three percentage points in the second quarter compared to last year. The positive impacts of increased demand for our products, and our strong operating performance and solid free cash flow underlie our decision to increase the ranges for all metrics in our guidance for the full year of 2018,” continued Jackson.

As we move through 2018, we continue to successfully execute on our strategy of investing in advertising and marketing to drive strong sales and expect to further enhance value going forward. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to completing our acquisition of Western Window Systems to position PGT Innovations as a national leader in the premium window and door space. As we enter the second half of the year, we are well positioned and focused to deliver on our strategic plan and deliver exceptional full year results,” Jackson concluded.

Fiscal Year 2018 Outlook

As previously announced, given the increased demand for our products and our solid execution, the Company is increasing its guidance for its 2018 fiscal year. The revised guidance is for legacy PGT Innovations and does not include Western Window Systems.

PGT Innovations now expects to finish toward the high end of the following ranges, with all comparisons to fiscal year 2017:

  • Net sales of $580 million to $600 million, increasing 13 percent to 17 percent;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $100 million to $110 million, increasing 19 percent to 31 percent;
  • Net income per diluted share of $0.95 to $1.10; and
  • Free cash flow of $62 million to $72 million

Acquisition of Western Window Systems

On July 24, 2018, the Company announced it entered into a definitive agreement under which PGT Innovations will acquire Western Window Systems for $360 million in cash, subject to customary adjustments. The transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to cash EPS and gross and adjusted EBITDA margins and accretive to GAAP EPS in the first half of 2019.

• increases in our transportation costs;

• our level of indebtedness;

• our dependence on our impact-resistant product lines;

• our ability to successfully integrate businesses we may acquire;

• product liability and warranty claims brought against us;

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This Press Release and the financial schedules include financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We believe that presentation of non-GAAP measures such as adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA provides investors and analysts with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance compared to past performance. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a better baseline for assessing our future earnings potential. The non-GAAP measures included in this release are provided to give investors access to types of measures that we use in analyzing our results.

Adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. Adjusted net income per share consists of GAAP net income per share adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe these measures enable investors and analysts to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to the past performance and provide a better baseline for assessing the Company's future earnings potential. However, these measures do not provide a complete picture of our operations.

Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income, adjusted for the items included in the accompanying reconciliation. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and analysts about the Company's performance because they eliminate the effects of period-to-period changes in taxes, costs associated with capital investments and interest expense. Adjusted EBITDA does not give effect to the cash the Company must use to service its debt or pay its income taxes and thus does not reflect the actual funds generated from operations or available for capital investments.

Our calculations of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to calculations performed by other companies and reported as similarly titled measures. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP measures. Schedules that reconcile adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, and adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income are included in the financial schedules accompanying this release.
