MP MENASHE, Israel, March 01, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Caesarstone Ltd. (NASDAQ: CSTE), a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality engineered surfaces, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.

Yuval Dagim, Caesarstone’s Chief Executive Officer commented, "I am proud of the entire Caesarstone team’s efforts as we finished 2022 with record full year revenue of approximately $691 million despite softer macro-economic conditions in the second half of 2022. During the year, we focused diligently on executing our multi-pronged growth strategy as we navigated through a challenging demand environment that remains soft. While we expect market volumes to be lower in the near-term, we believe long-term renovation and remodel fundamentals in our key markets remain strong. With this in mind, we are focused on optimizing our global structure during 2023 to operate more efficiently and improve our scalability for new growth opportunities."

"We are carefully monitoring our costs as we work to improve our margins while also investing for future growth. In order to do so effectively, we are focused on leveraging the projects within our Global Growth Acceleration Plan. This includes actions to rationalize our costs through headcount reductions and closely monitoring expenses. We have already reduced global headcount by 9% during the second half of 2022. We are more efficiently managing our working capital by balancing production at our facilities and reducing SKUs to align inventory levels to current demand. We have increased the portion of our products that are produced by 3rd parties in lower cost countries, enabling us to better capture incremental demand for products at various price points. We are intensifying our marketing efforts to reinforce the Caesarstone brand, in part by reinvesting proceeds from cost saving actions. We are expanding our U.S footprint through investments into new distribution centers that will be opened in coming years. Furthermore, our investments in new territories including our bolt-on acquisition of a distributor in Sweden gives us a direct presence for expansion in Europe. And finally, the launch in the U.S. and Canada of our new Porcelain products in the first half of 2023 is an exciting milestone in our multi-material strategy to accelerate our growth in this exciting product category."

"With our world-class brand, multi-material countertop offerings, innovative go-to-market initiatives and dedicated focus on driving results, we believe we are well situated to capture market share and unlock further value in our business."

Fourth Quarter 2022 Results

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2022 was $159.4 million, 6.8% lower compared to $171.1 million in the prior year quarter. On a constant currency basis, fourth quarter revenue was lower by 2.1% year-over-year. Sales improvement in the Company’s APAC region on a constant currency basis, was more than offset by softer performance in other regions given challenging macro-economic conditions that resulted in lower demand.

Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2022 was 19.4% compared to 23.2% in the prior year quarter. Adjusted gross margin in the fourth quarter was 19.7% compared to 23.3% in the prior year quarter. The majority of the year-over-year reduction in gross margin resulted from increased manufacturing unit costs due to lower fixed cost absorption resulting from lower capacity utilization, higher raw material and shipping costs and unfavorable foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations as a result of appreciation of the U.S dollar against all other currencies, partially offset by pricing actions.

Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2022 were $106.1 million, compared to $36.3 million in the prior year quarter. The fourth quarter 2022 included a one-time, non-cash impairment charge of $71.3 million related to goodwill and long-lived assets. The Company’s current market capitalization together with challenging economic conditions, higher interest rates and lower production utilization prompted a review of its goodwill and long-lived asset balances, which resulted in the impairment charges. Excluding legal settlements, loss contingencies and impairment charges, adjusted operating expenses were 22.2% of revenue, compared to 21.9% in the prior year quarter.

Operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2022 was a loss of $75.2 million compared to operating income of $3.3 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the one-time, non-cash impairment charges, the operating loss was $3.9 million. The year-over-year decrease mainly reflects lower gross margin.

Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2022, which excludes expenses for non-cash impairment charges, share-based compensation, legal settlements and loss contingencies and for non-recurring items, was $5.7 million, representing a margin of 3.6%. This compared to adjusted EBITDA of $11.5 million, representing a margin of 6.7% in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year decrease primarily reflects the lower operating income.

Finance expenses in the fourth quarter of 2022 were $0.4 million compared to finance expense of $7.4 million in the prior year quarter. The difference primarily reflects foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Net loss attributable to controlling interest for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $74.0 million compared to net loss of $2.9 million in the prior year quarter, and included the after-tax impact of the non-cash impairment charge for the fourth quarter of 2022. Net loss per share for the fourth quarter was $2.15 compared to net loss per share of $0.11 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted diluted net loss per share for the fourth quarter was $0.02 on 34.5 million shares, compared to adjusted diluted net income per share of $0.01 in the prior year quarter on a similar share count.

Full Year 2022 Results

Revenue in the full year 2022 grew 7.3% year over year and reached a company record of $690.8 million compared to $643.9 million in the prior year. On a constant currency basis, 2022 revenue was higher by 10.8% year-over-year, primarily attributable to growth in the United States and Canada.

Gross margin in 2022 was 23.6% compared to 26.6% in the prior year. Adjusted gross margin in 2022 was 23.8%, compared to 26.8% in the prior year. The difference in adjusted gross margin mainly reflects increased manufacturing unit costs due to lower fixed cost absorption resulting from lower capacity utilization, higher raw material prices, unfavorable foreign exchange rates, and shipping price increases which were partially offset by favorable product mix and selling price increases.

Operating expenses in 2022 were $221.9 million compared to $144.1 million in the prior year, and included the $71.3 million non-cash impairment charge in 2022. Excluding legal settlements, loss contingencies and impairment charges, adjusted operating expenses improved to 21.7% of revenue, compared to 21.9% in the prior year quarter.

Operating loss in 2022 was $58.7 million compared to operating income of $27.4 million in the prior year. The year-over-year decrease mainly reflects higher operating expenses. Excluding the non-cash impairment charges, operating income was $12.6 million.

Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes non-cash impairment charges, expenses for share-based compensation, legal settlements and loss contingencies and for non-recurring items, was $51.9 million in 2022, representing a margin of 7.5%. This compares to adjusted EBITDA of $68.2 million, representing a margin of 10.6% in the prior year. This year-over-year margin decrease primarily reflects lower gross margin.

Finance income in 2022 was $3.1 million compared to finance expense of $7.6 million in the prior year. The difference was primarily a result of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Net loss attributable to controlling interest for the full year 2022 was $57.1 million compared to net income of $19.0 million in the prior year, and included the after-tax impact of the impairment charge for 2022. Net loss per share for 2022 was $1.66 compared to diluted net income per share of $0.51 in the prior year. Adjusted diluted net income per share for 2022 was $0.31 compared to $0.83 in the prior year.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

As of December 31, 2022, the Company’s balance sheet included cash, cash equivalents and short-term bank deposits and short and long-term marketable securities of $59.2 million and total debt to financial institutions of $31.0 million.

Dividend

The Company’s dividend policy provides for a quarterly cash dividend of up to 50% of reported net income on a year-to-date basis, less any amount already paid as dividend for the respective period (the "calculated dividend"), subject in each case to approval by the Company’s board of directors. No dividend is paid if it would be less than $0.10 per share. Pursuant to the Company’s dividend policy, the Company does not intend to pay a dividend for the fourth quarter of 2022, based on its reported net loss attributable to controlling interest for the period.

Outlook

Given the challenging macroeconomic environment and limited ability to forecast the duration of government-induced actions that have slowed the pace of construction activity in many countries, at this time the Company anticipates revenues for 2023 will be within range of 2022 revenues. This will be largely achieved through enacted price actions roughly offsetting an expected decline in volume and the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Additionally, the Company expects moderate and gradual improvement in Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales for the full year 2023, primarily attributable to pricing initiatives, cost optimization efforts and other actions, which are expected to more than offset higher raw material and shipping costs in inventory entering into 2023.

Nahum Trost, Caesarstone’s Chief Financial Officer, concluded, "We believe the outlook that we are providing is both achievable and appropriate given the level of uncertainty in the industry. We are well positioned and prepared to execute on our multi-pronged growth strategy and the factors that are within our control. We believe we are taking a balanced and prudent approach to set expectations and we will fully leverage all resources available to us to mitigate risk and capitalize on the market opportunities available to Caesarstone."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP measures presented by the Company should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. Reconciliations of GAAP gross profit to adjusted gross profit, GAAP net income (loss) to adjusted net income (loss) and net income (loss) to adjusted EBITDA are provided in the schedules to this release. To calculate revenues growth rates that exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, the Company converts actual reported results from local currency to U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates in the current and comparable period. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating performance.
