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 September 30, 2022.

“2022 is unfolding in line with our expectations as our focus on simplifying operations and margin recovery pays off. Our operating performance across our businesses was strong in the third quarter, with our Renewables and Agtech businesses showing continuing margin improvement as we anticipated, and the Residential and Infrastructure businesses both generating solid revenue and margin results,” stated Chairman and CEO Bill Bosway.

Third Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results from Continuing Operations

Revenue increased 5.9% to $391.3 million and adjusted revenue increased 6.4% to $389.0 million. Approximately half of the increase was organic growth with the remainder from the acquisition of Quality Aluminum Products (QAP). Revenue growth was driven by participation gains, price management, and the acquisition of Quality Aluminum Products in the Residential segment, offset by continuing end market supply chain challenges and project delays in the Renewables and Agtech segments.

GAAP earnings increased 22.9% to $34.3 million, or $1.08 per share, and adjusted earnings increased 14.4% to $35.7 million, or $1.12 per share. EPS growth of 28.6% and 19.1% in the quarter on a GAAP and adjusted basis, respectively, was driven by participation gains, price management, business mix, and 80/20 initiatives and the share repurchase program.

Adjusted measures exclude charges for restructuring initiatives, acquisition-related items, senior leadership transition costs, and the results of the Processing business, which was classified as held for sale in the first quarter of 2022, as further described in the appended reconciliation of adjusted financial measures.

Third Quarter Segment Results


For the third quarter, the Renewables segment reported:

Segment revenue was down 14.7% and backlog decreased 9%. The timing and progress of solar projects depend upon the supply of solar panels, and solar installations continue to be impacted by supply constraints due to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), which was enacted in June, and a three-month delay by the U.S. Department of Commerce for its preliminary ruling on its solar panel anti-dumping / countervailing duties (AD/CVD) anticircumvention investigation.

Despite the effects of this trade environment, adjusted operating margin improved as expected, increasing 150 basis points year-over-year and 590 basis points sequentially, driven by improved project management, price / cost alignment, and field operations efficiencies.


For the third quarter, the Residential segment reported:

Revenue increased 25.7%, the segment’s ninth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, with organic revenue up 19.0% and the acquisition of Quality Aluminum Products contributing 6.7% of the growth. Organic revenue growth was driven by pricing, participation gains and market demand.

Adjusted operating income grew 22.6% and adjusted operating margin was flat on an organic basis. The recent acquisition of Quality Aluminum Products drove the 40 basis point decrease to 16.8%. We expect QAP margins to improve as 80/20 is implemented.


For the third quarter, the Agtech segment reported:

GAAP revenue decreased 9.8%, with adjusted revenue down 7.3% due to Produce project movement partially offset by strong Commercial business. While quote activity remains robust, backlog decreased 7% on a challenging year-over-year comparison.

GAAP operating margin improved 400 basis points and adjusted operating margin 200 basis points. On a sequential basis, adjusted operating margin improved 400 basis points. Margin performance was driven by good business mix, improving price / cost management, supply chain improvement, and 80/20 initiatives.


For the third quarter, the Infrastructure segment reported:

Revenue increased 9.1% as bidding activity remained very strong and backlog increased 11%. Management expects continued positive impact from increased infrastructure spending related to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act through the end of this year and into 2023.

Operating income increased 62.5% and operating margins improved 380 basis points driven by price material cost alignment, volume leverage, positive mix and improved operating execution.

Business Outlook

Gibraltar is raising the lower end and narrowing the range of its EPS outlook for the full year 2022, with consolidated revenue still expected to range between $1.38 billion and $1.43 billion. GAAP EPS is expected to be between $2.90 and $3.00, and adjusted EPS expected to be between $3.30 and $3.40. Previous GAAP and Adjusted EPS guidance ranges were $2.80 to $3.00 and $3.20 to $3.40, respectively.

“Given our performance to date and our demand profile entering the fourth quarter, we remain confident in delivering our full-year EPS outlook. We remain very focused on simplifying our operations, executing for our customers and controlling the things we can control,” said Mr. Bosway.
