DALLAS, Oct. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (LII) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2019. All comparisons are to the prior-year period. The company's tornado references relate to the July 2018 tornado damage at a Residential manufacturing facility in Iowa. Adjusted revenue and profit exclude non-core Refrigeration businesses divested in 2018 and 2019.

Lennox International reported third-quarter GAAP and adjusted revenue of $1,033 million. GAAP revenue was up slightly, including 7% of negative impact from the tornado and divestitures. Adjusted revenue, excluding the impact from divestitures, was up 6% to a new third-quarter high. GAAP and adjusted revenue included 2% of negative tornado impact.

GAAP operating income was $157 million, up 8%. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was up 11% to a third-quarter record $2.94. Total adjusted segment profit rose 15% to a third-quarter record $175 million, and total adjusted segment margin expanded 140 basis points to a third-quarter record 17.0%. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations rose 26% to a third-quarter record $3.34.

"Adverse weather conditions continued in the third quarter with cooler weather than last year in key swing regions and for the U.S. overall," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "This was a major headwind to our Residential business following the significantly cooler and wetter weather of the second quarter. On a reported basis, Residential segment revenue was a third-quarter record $638 million, up 7% compared to the third quarter a year ago in which a tornado damaged a major manufacturing facility and disrupted our highest-end business. Residential segment margin for the third quarter of 2019 expanded 80 basis points to a third-quarter record 19.8%, and segment profit rose 12% to a third-quarter record $127 million. Residential revenue was negatively impacted $23 million or 4% from business not recovered following the tornado. Segment profit was negatively impacted $12 million, offset by $16 million of insurance recovery for lost profits. The net $4 million benefit to segment profit was $3 million below guidance. For 2019 overall, we continue to expect $99 million of negative tornado impact to Residential revenue, a negative $54 million impact to segment profit, and insurance recovery for lost profits of $94 million. The resulting $40 million of net benefit to Residential segment profit in 2019 is unchanged.

"In our Commercial business, revenue was up 7% in the third quarter, led by double-digit growth in National Account equipment revenue, and we added 13 new National Account customers in the quarter. Segment margin was down 30 basis points to 18.6%. Segment profit rose 5%. In Refrigeration, adjusted segment revenue was flat at constant currency, with North America up mid-single digits and Europe down mid-single digits. Adjusted segment profit was down 10% as segment margin declined 130 basis points to 13.9%.

"Overall for the company in 2019, we now expect revenue growth of 2-4% and adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $11.15-$11.45. Moving into the heating season, the fourth quarter is off to a solid start, and we look forward to finishing the year strong with continued momentum into 2020."

LENNOX INTERNATIONAL INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Reconciliation to U.S. GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) Measures

(Unaudited, in millions, except per share and ratio data)


Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures


To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements and segment net sales and profit presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, additional non-GAAP financial measures are provided and reconciled in the following tables.  In addition to these non-GAAP measures, the Company also provides rates of revenue change at constant currency on a consolidated and segment basis if different than the reported  measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company's business trends and operating performance. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Kysor Warren business. In the first quarter of 2018, the Company announced the planned sales of its businesses in Australia, Asia, and South America. The sale of the Company's business in Australia and Asia and the related property was completed in the second quarter of 2018 and sale of the Company's business in South America was completed in the third quarter of 2018. The results from operations for these businesses have been shown in the tables below as "Non-core business results". The prior period results have been updated to provide period-over-period comparability.
