Q2 Revenue Increases 37%, including 14% Organic and 23% Growth from Acquisitions

GAAP and Adjusted EPS Up 8% and 7%, Respectively, to $0.80

Record Order Backlog Exceeds $400 Million, Led by Renewables

Reaffirming Full Year Revenue and EPS Guidance

BUFFALO, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and provider of products and services for the renewable energy, residential, agtech and infrastructure markets, today reported its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2021.

Gibraltar Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

“In the midst of a dynamic and inflationary market environment, we delivered solid performance with revenue growth of 37%, adjusted operating income growth of 8%, adjusted EPS growth of 7%, and order backlog increased 54%, or 32% on a proforma basis, to over $400 million, the highest level in the history of the company,” President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Bosway stated. “Material cost inflation continued to accelerate as we exited the first quarter, and labor, freight, and logistics inflation and availability began to surface as we entered the second quarter. Working closely with customers and suppliers starting during fourth quarter 2020 and implementing ongoing pricing and productivity initiatives has helped us manage these dynamics and deliver this quarter’s results. Additionally, the integrations of TerraSmart and Sunfig are on track, our Agtech business is recovering as planned, and overall demand is currently in line with expectations.”

Second Quarter 2021 Consolidated Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales from continuing operations increased 36.5% to $348.4 million, with organic growth contributing 14.0% and recent acquisitions 22.5%. Organic growth was driven by strong end market demand and participation gains in all four segments.

GAAP earnings increased 7.8% to $26.4 million, or $0.80 per share, and adjusted earnings increased 6.9% to $26.3 million, or $0.80 per share, the result of continued execution across the business segments, the TerraSmart acquisition, and 80/20 productivity initiatives, partially offset by timing and alignment of higher input costs and price increases, supply chain disruptions, and shifts in project timing in the Agtech and Renewables segments. Adjusted measures remove charges for restructuring initiatives, acquisition-related items, senior leadership transition costs, and other reclassifications, as further described in the appended reconciliation of adjusted financial measures.

Below are second quarter 2021 consolidated results from continuing operations:

Second Quarter Segment Results

Renewables

The headwinds impacting the solar industry in the first quarter, including steel inflation, supply chain challenges with panels, and the safe harbor ITC extension announced in December 2020, continued into the second quarter. Despite this, the Renewable business continued to accelerate, delivering year-over-year revenue growth of 92.5% through the combination of the legacy and TerraSmart businesses and pro forma organic growth of 25%. Growth was driven by strong demand across Gibraltar’s broad offering of fixed tilt, tracker, canopy, and eBos product solutions serving the community and commercial and industrial market segments. Order backlog exceeded $218 million at the end of the quarter, up 54% from last year on a proforma basis, its highest level in the company’s history. The integration of the legacy and TerraSmart businesses remains on track, and the combination of the two is resonating well in the market.

Adjusted operating income improved 45.2% while adjusted operating margin contracted 380 basis points, the majority of which was anticipated, and related to the integration of TerraSmart. The TerraSmart integration is delivering as expected with adjusted operating margins nearly doubling over the first quarter as demand continued to accelerate and 80/20 productivity initiatives were implemented, and TerraSmart’s full-year margin plan remains on track. Of the remaining shortfall, approximately half was related to a one-time tariff credit received in Q2 2020, with the remaining the result of timing and alignment of price actions with input cost inflation and project movement related to supply chain schedule and logistics challenges.

Residential

Revenue increased 17.7% with strong organic growth of 12% driven by increased pricing and volume, despite supply chain dynamics related to material, labor and logistics availability; Architectural Mailboxes, acquired in 2020, contributed 6% of the quarter’s growth and integration remains on track.

The business delivered adjusted operating margin of 16.6%, a decrease versus last year, driven by the impact of accelerated inflation, material and labor availability, and the timing and alignment of price actions with input costs. Gibraltar has implemented multiple price increases, and will continue to do so until inflation subsides. In accordance with customer supply agreements, each price action will take time to align with accelerating inflation, with operating margin historically recovering within a one or two quarter period. In the near term, management will continue to maximize operating profit dollars with focus on execution and 80/20 productivity initiatives.

Agtech

Revenue increased 27.0% with solid activity across the produce, commercial, car wash, retail, and processing equipment segments. Although demand continued to improve, the business experienced project movement from the second quarter into the second half of 2021 as schedules have been impacted by permit delays, rescoping of projects, and supply chain disruptions. Order backlog experienced a slight and temporary contraction during the quarter due to rescoping of projects and the impact of supply chain disruptions. July customer order activity is accelerating backlog momentum, and the segment remains on track with expectations for the year.

Adjusted operating income was flat year-over-year and adjusted operating margin expanded 180 basis points on a sequential basis as the processing equipment business continued to improve along with continuing benefits of integration in the produce business. Adjusted operating margin contracted year-over-year due to business mix, the movement of certain abovementioned projects into the second half of the year, higher input costs and logistics challenges. These temporary headwinds were partially offset by improvements in legacy greenhouse structures, cannabis greenhouse structures, and cannabis and hemp processing equipment businesses.

Infrastructure

Revenue increased 29.7% as demand for fabricated and non-fabricated products increased as State D.O.T. project funding improved with the strengthening of the U.S. economy. Order backlog increased 11% to more than $46 million during the quarter indicating growing strength across the business.

Improvement in adjusted operating margin was driven by mix of higher-margin non-fabricated products and solutions, strong execution on higher volumes, and continued investment in 80/20 productivity initiatives.

Business Outlook

“We expect today’s business environment, which has been very dynamic since the beginning of January, to remain so throughout the second half of 2021. We will continue to manage inflation, minimize supply chain disruptions, operate in a tight labor market, and continue with our COVID operating protocols. We are currently positioned well with solid end market demand, record order backlog, a very healthy balance sheet, and strong focus on daily execution, acquisition integrations, and further strengthening our organization and operating systems,“ commented Mr. Bosway. “We remain confident in our existing full year 2021 guidance for revenue and earnings. We base this on our performance to date in 2021, which is consistent with historical patterns, and our current outlook and initiatives for improving profitability across each business. Consolidated revenue is expected to range between $1.3 billion and $1.35 billion. GAAP EPS from continuing operations is expected to range between $2.78 and $2.95 compared to $2.53 in 2020, and adjusted EPS from continuing operations is expected to range between $3.30 and $3.47 compared to $2.73 in 2020.”

Adjusted Financial Measures

To supplement Gibraltar’s consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Gibraltar also presented certain adjusted financial measures in this news release.

These adjustments are shown in the reconciliation of adjusted financial measures excluding special charges provided in the supplemental financial schedules that accompany this news release. The Company believes that the presentation of results excluding special charges provides meaningful supplemental data to investors, as well as management, that are indicative of the Company’s core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods as well as comparison with other companies. Special charges are excluded since they may not be considered directly related to the Company’s ongoing business operations. These adjusted measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company’s GAAP results and may be different than adjusted measures used by other companies.
