LCI Industries (NYSE: LCII) which, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lippert Components, Inc. ("LCI"), supplies a broad array of highly engineered components for the leading original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") in the recreation and transportation product markets, and the related aftermarkets of those industries, today reported third quarter 2020 results.

"We are pleased to announce we delivered a record quarter with 41% revenue and 91% earnings growth over the prior year driven by favorable trends in the outdoor recreation space and our recent acquisitions. In the quarter, we significantly expanded market share across our businesses, supported by new business wins and content increases, highlighting the strength of our products and strong execution of our team. We believe our strong operational capabilities, combined with our focus on innovation, will further advance LCI’s industry leadership and enable our continued strong performance," commented Jason Lippert, LCI Industries’ President and Chief Executive Officer.

"With a significant number of new customers taking advantage of a new outdoor lifestyle, we anticipate that the attractive retail tailwinds we have experienced over the last several months will continue well into 2021 and beyond. In addition, we remain focused on executing our diversification strategy, capturing similar industry tailwinds in our aftermarket and adjacent industries markets," Lippert continued. "I am very pleased with our terrific performance this quarter, and would like to thank the entire LCI team for rising to the challenge of meeting record RV industry demand levels, capturing growth opportunities, and creating further value for our shareholders."

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Consolidated net sales for the third quarter of 2020 were $827.7 million, an increase of 41 percent from 2019 third quarter net sales of $586.2 million. Net income in the third quarter of 2020 was $68.3 million, or $2.70 per diluted share, compared to net income of $35.8 million, or $1.42 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019. Adjusted net income in the third quarter of 2020 was $68.6 million, or $2.72 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2020 was $119.4 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $67.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. Additional information regarding adjusted net income, adjusted diluted net income per common share, and adjusted EBITDA, as well as reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, are provided in the "Supplementary Information - Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" section below.

The increase in year-over-year net sales for the third quarter of 2020 was primarily driven by record demand in RV retail, in addition to the impact of acquisitions and organic growth across the Company's aftermarket segment and international markets. Net sales from acquisitions completed by the Company contributed $99 million in the third quarter of 2020.

The Company's content per travel trailer and fifth-wheel RV, adjusted to remove Furrion sales from prior periods, for the twelve months ended September 30, 2020, increased $160 to $3,428, compared to $3,268 for the twelve months ended September 30, 2019. The content increase in towables was a result of organic growth, including new product introductions.

October 2020 Results

October 2020 consolidated net sales were approximately $288 million, up 25 percent from October 2019 as the significant increase in RV production continued into the fourth fiscal quarter to meet elevated RV retail demand.

Income Taxes

The Company's effective tax rate was 26.1 percent for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to 24.2 percent for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The effective tax rate was higher primarily due to an increase in non-deductible expenses.

Balance Sheet and Other Items

At September 30, 2020, the Company's cash and cash equivalents balance was $68.2 million, up from $35.4 million at December 31, 2019. The Company generated cash flows from operations of $212.5 million and used $94.9 million for acquisitions, $51.5 million for dividend payments to shareholders, and $28.7 million for capital expenditures in the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The Company's outstanding long-term indebtedness, including current maturities, was $635.9 million at September 30, 2020, and the Company remained in compliance with its debt covenants. The Company believes that its current liquidity is adequate to meet operating needs for the foreseeable future.

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company has provided the non-GAAP performance measures of adjusted net income, adjusted diluted net income per common share, and adjusted EBITDA to illustrate and improve comparability of its results from period to period. Adjusted net income is defined as net income adjusted for items that impact the comparability of the Company's results from period to period, which consisted of the inventory fair value step-up from the acquisition of CURT and related tax impacts during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020. Adjusted diluted net income per common share is defined as net income per common share adjusted for items that impact the comparability of the Company's results from period to period, which consisted of the inventory fair value step-up from the acquisition of CURT and related tax impacts during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before interest expense, net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, and other adjustments made in order to present comparable results from period to period, which consisted of the inventory fair value step-up from the acquisition of CURT during the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2020. The Company considers these non-GAAP measures in evaluating and managing the Company's operations and believes that discussion of results adjusted for these items is meaningful to investors because it provides a useful analysis of ongoing underlying operating trends. The adjusted measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures, and they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
