PLEASANTON, Calif., July 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Net sales of $593.2 million increased 44.6% year-over-year

  • Income from operations of $133.1 million increased 30.8% year-over-year

  • Diluted earnings per share of $2.16 increased 30.1% year-over-year

  • Repurchased $25.0 million of the Company's common stock during the quarter

Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE: SSD), an industry leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2022. Refer to the "Segment and Product Group Information" table below for additional segment information (including information about the Company's Asia/Pacific segment and Administrative and All Other segment).

Beginning in 2022, the Company changed its presentation for both the North America and the Administrative and all other segment's statement of operations to display allocated expenses and management fees as a separate item below income from operations. During 2021, allocated expenses and management fees between the two segments were previously included in operating expenses and in income from operations and have been adjusted herein to conform to the 2022 presentation. Consolidated income from operations, income before tax and net income for all periods presented below are not affected by the change in presentation.

All comparisons below (which are generally indicated by words such as "increased," "decreased," "remained," or "compared to"), unless otherwise noted, are comparing the quarter ended June 30, 2022 with the quarter ended June 30, 2021 and include the results of the acquisition of FIXCO Invest S.A.S ("ETANCO") on April 1, 2022. All purchase accounting adjustments related to the ETANCO acquisition are preliminary and subject to change.

2022 Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Consolidated net sales of $593.2 million increased 44.6% from $410.3 million.

  • Consolidated gross profit of $259.3 million increased 32.0% from $196.4 million. Gross margin decreased to 43.7% from 47.9%.

  • Consolidated income from operations of $133.1 million increased 30.8% from $101.7 million. The increase was primarily due to the increase in consolidated gross profit, partly offset by higher operating expenses, including $14.9 million attributable to ETANCO, and $5.9 million for integration costs also related to ETANCO. Consolidated operating margin decreased to 22.4% from 24.8%.

  • The Company's effective income tax rate slightly decreased to 26.8% from 26.9%.

  • Net income was $93.6 million, or $2.16 per diluted share of the Company's common stock, compared to net income of $72.5 million, or $1.66 per diluted share. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 includes $3.4 million of net interest expense primarily on the Company's borrowings for its acquisition of ETANCO.

Management Commentary

"We delivered strong financial and operational performance in the second quarter," commented Karen Colonias, Chief Executive Officer of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. "Since we announced the acquisition of ETANCO in late December, planning for and initiating the integration has been a primary focus. Our integration efforts, supported by the strong culture of our combined teams, have been progressing according to plan. After several months of hard work, we were very pleased to have found no material adjustments to our previously identified synergy opportunities, although the realization of the full amount is subject to change based on the current environment in Europe. We still believe we are well positioned to capture meaningful benefits from those synergies in the coming years."

Mrs. Colonias concluded, "We made progress on our key growth initiatives during the second quarter within each of our five end use markets including Residential, Commercial, OEM, National Retail and Building Technology, which gives us confidence we can continue our above market growth relative to U.S. housing starts in fiscal 2022 and beyond. In conjunction with the integration of ETANCO, we identified facility expansions in the U.S. that will improve our overall service, production efficiencies and safety in the workplace, as well as reduce our reliance on certain outsourced finished goods and component products, and ensure we have ample capacity to meet our customers' needs. Investments in these expansions have already started this year and will continue into 2024. While the rapidly changing macroeconomic environment including rising interest rates, inflation and other factors continue to impact the industry at large, we believe Simpson is uniquely positioned to perform given our diversification strategy and strong brand reputation that we've cultivated over the past 66 years."

Corporate Developments

  • During the second quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 260,285 shares of common stock in the open market at an average price of $96.05 per share, for a total of $25.0 million. As of June 30, 2022, approximately $53.7 million remained available for repurchase under the Company's previously announced $100.0 million share repurchase authorization (which expires at the end of 2022).

Business Outlook

The Company has updated its 2022 financial outlook to include the acquisition of ETANCO, two quarters of actual results, and its latest expectations regarding demand trends, raw material costs and operating expenses. Based on business trends and conditions as of today, July 25, 2022, the Company's outlook for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2022 is as follows:

  • Operating margin is expected to be in the range of 19.0% to 21.0%, in-line with its more recent historical average as the Company has better visibility on material costs and expected results from its acquisition of ETANCO. The revised outlook includes $20.0 to $25.0 million in expected integration and transaction costs for the acquisition.

  • Interest expense on the outstanding $250.0 million Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loans, which had initial borrowings of $450.0 million, is expected to be approximately $10.4 million, including the benefit from interest rate and cross currency swaps mitigating substantially all of the volatility from changes in interest rates.

  • The effective tax rate is expected to be in the range of 25.5% to 26.5%.

  • Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $80.0 million to $90.0 million including amounts attributable to ETANCO.
