American Woodmark Corporation Announces First Quarter Results
American Woodmark Corporation (the “Company”) announced results for its first fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2020.
Net sales for the first fiscal quarter decreased 8.7% to $390.1 million compared with the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. The Company experienced declines in all sales channels during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 as both the remodel and new construction markets were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Net income was $16.5 million ($0.97 per diluted share) for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with $26.9 million ($1.59 per diluted share) in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was negatively impacted by lower sales due to COVID-19, deleveraging of fixed costs across the Company and a decline in efficiency. The Company incurred pre-tax restructuring costs totaling $3.5 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 related to the permanent layoffs due to COVID-19 announced in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and the closure of its Humboldt, Tennessee manufacturing plant announced in June 2020. Adjusted EPS per diluted share was $1.66 for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 compared with $2.13 in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first fiscal quarter was $57.0 million, or 14.6% of net sales, compared to $69.6 million, or 16.3% of net sales, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.
“Our sales and net income were negatively impacted by COVID-19 during our first fiscal quarter, but our teams performed well and drove results that exceeded our initial expectations,” said Scott Culbreth, President and CEO. “I want to personally thank all of our employees and suppliers for helping the Company navigate this difficult situation.”
Cash provided by operating activities for the first fiscal quarter was $40.0 million and free cash flow totaled $32.2 million. As of July 31, 2020, the Company had $128.1 million of cash on hand with no term loan debt maturities until December 2022 plus access to $93.6 million of additional availability under its revolving credit facility.
