Press Release

Lennox International Reports Record Profit in Second Quarter

PR Newswire - Monday 07/21/2014 8:00 AM ET

DALLAS, July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2014. Financial results in prior periods have been revised to reflect sold businesses in discontinued operations.

Revenue for the second quarter was $961 million, up 5% from the prior-year quarter. At constant currency, revenue was up 6%. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $1.51, up 15% from $1.31 in the prior-year quarter. On a GAAP basis, earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $1.50, up 19% from $1.26 in the prior-year quarter.

"The company's record 12.3% total segment margin was driven by strong growth and margin expansion in both our Residential and Commercial businesses in the second quarter," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "Residential revenue was up 11% and segment margin expanded 220 basis points to a record 16.1%. Residential profit rose 28% to a record $85 million. Our Commercial business set second-quarter records for revenue, margin and profit. Led by high single-digit growth in North America, Commercial segment revenue grew 5% and margin expanded 110 basis points to 16.2%. Commercial profit rose 13%.

"The upside that we are realizing in Residential and Commercial, however, is being dampened by soft conditions in Refrigeration, where North American supermarket and Australian wholesale businesses have been weak. Refrigeration revenue was down 7% in the second quarter, and segment margin contracted 530 basis points to 7.1%. Refrigeration profit was down 47% from the record level in the prior-year quarter. In North America, we continue to expect supermarket business to improve in the second half of the year based on new national account business won. In Australia, with the repeal of the carbon tax and more clarity in that market, we expect an improvement in our refrigeration equipment business; however, the repeal of the carbon tax will negatively impact the profitability of our refrigerant business, and we expect profitability for Australia to be down in the second half of the year from the same period last year.

"Overall, the company remains on track for strong growth and record profitability in 2014. We are raising revenue growth guidance to 5-7% for the full year and narrowing adjusted EPS from continuing operations guidance to $4.30-$4.50, up 16-22%. Over the last year, we have made significant investments to drive organic growth. With a strong balance sheet and cash generation, we continue to invest in the future, as well as grow dividends with earnings and repurchase stock, including plans to buy back $100 million of stock in the second half of the year."

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue: Revenue for the second quarter was $961 million, up 5% from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange had a negative 1 point impact on revenue growth. Volume and price/mix were up from the prior-year quarter.

Gross Profit: Gross profit for the second quarter was $263 million, up 3% from the prior-year quarter. Gross margin was 27.3% compared to 27.8% in the prior-year quarter. Gross profit was favorably impacted by higher volume, lower material costs and favorable price, partially offset by negative mix, foreign exchange, and investments in distribution expansion and other investments for future growth.

Income from Continuing Operations: Adjusted income from continuing operations in the second quarter was $74.9 million, or $1.51 per share, compared to $66.5 million, or $1.31 per share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 excludes a gain of $0.5 million after-tax for the net change in unrealized gains on unsettled future contracts, a $0.5 million after-tax charge for restructuring activities, and $0.3 million in after-tax charges for other items, net.

On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $74.6 million, or $1.50 per share, compared to $64.3 million, or $1.26 per share, in the prior-year quarter.

Free Cash Flow and Total Debt: Net cash from operations in the second quarter was $52 million compared to $49 million in the prior-year quarter. The company invested $24 million in capital assets in the second quarter, up from $11 million in the second quarter a year ago. Free cash flow was $28 million, compared to $38 million in the prior-year quarter. Total debt at the end of the second quarter was $607 million. Total cash and cash equivalents were $50 million at the end of the quarter. The company increased its dividend 25% to $0.30 per share quarterly and repurchased $50 million of stock in the second quarter.

BUSINESS SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS

Residential Heating & Cooling
Second quarter 2014 revenue in the Residential Heating & Cooling business segment was $528 million, up 11% from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange was neutral. Segment profit was a record $85 million, up 28% from the prior-year quarter. Segment profit margin was a record 16.1%, up 220 basis points. Results were primarily impacted by higher volume, lower material costs, lower SG&A, and favorable price, with partial offsets from a less favorable warranty reserve adjustment than in the prior-year quarter and investments in distribution expansion.

Commercial Heating & Cooling
Revenue in the Commercial Heating & Cooling business segment was $241 million, up 5% from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange was neutral. Segment profit was $39 million, up 13% from the prior-year quarter. Segment profit margin was 16.2%, up 110 basis points. Results were primarily impacted by higher volume, favorable price/mix, and lower material costs, with partial offsets from investments in distribution expansion and start-up costs to enter the VRF market in the third quarter of 2014.

Refrigeration
Revenue in the Refrigeration business segment was $192 million in the second quarter, down 7% from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange had a negative 1 point impact on revenue. Segment profit was $14 million, down 47% from the record level of $26 million in the prior-year quarter. Segment profit margin was 7.1%, down 530 basis points. Results were primarily impacted by lower volume, unfavorable mix, investments to support future growth, and foreign exchange, with a partial offset from lower material costs.

FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK

For 2014, the company is raising revenue guidance and narrowing EPS from continuing operations guidance.

  • Raising revenue growth guidance from 2-6% to 5-7% for the full year; 1 point of negative impact from foreign exchange is still expected.
  • Narrowing adjusted EPS from continuing operations guidance from $4.20-$4.60 to $4.30-$4.50.
  • Narrowing GAAP EPS from continuing operations guidance from $4.18-$4.58 to $4.27-$4.47.
  • Reiterating corporate expense guidance of approximately $70 million in 2014.
  • Reiterating effective tax rate guidance of 34-35% on a full-year basis.
  • Reiterating capital expenditure guidance of approximately $90 million in 2014.
  • Reiterating plans for $150 million of stock repurchases in 2014.

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. 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.
