American Woodmark Corporation Announces First Quarter Results
Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased $100.3 million, or 22.7%, to $542.9 million compared with the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. The Company experienced growth in all sales channels during the first quarter of fiscal 2023 versus the prior year period.
Net income was $20.1 million ($1.21 per diluted share) for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared with net income of $3.0 million ($0.18 per diluted share) in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased due to an increase in net sales largely as a result of price increases and increased efficiencies, partially offset by higher material and logistics costs.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 increased $24.4 million, or 76.0%, to $56.5 million, or 10.4% of net sales, compared to $32.1 million, or 7.3% of net sales, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year.
Cash provided by operating activities for the first three months of fiscal 2023 was $37.3 million and free cash flow totaled $32.7 million. Cash flows were positively impacted by the increase in net income and higher accrued expenses. As of July 31, 2022, the Company had $33.7 million of cash on hand with no term loan debt maturities until July 2023 plus access to $239.4 million of additional availability under its revolving loan facility. The Company paid down a net of $20.6 million of its debt during the first three months of the current fiscal year.
“During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, our teams delivered sales growth of 22.7%, improved adjusted EBITDA by 76.0% to $56.5 million, and generated free cash flow of over $32 million,” said Scott Culbreth, President and CEO. “We committed to improving our results as price realization started to better match inflationary impacts and we improved our costs through operating efficiency initiatives. Our team has remained resilient and focused and I want to thank them for their efforts in delivering these results.”
