VENICE, Fla., May 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT, Inc. (Nasdaq:PGTI), the leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, announces financial results for the first quarter ended April 2, 2011. In our first quarter:

  • Net sales were $40.6 million, an increase of $0.1 million, or 0.3%, over prior year first quarter.
  • Adjusted gross margin of 25.8% decreased from the first quarter of 2010 gross margin of 27.9%. 
  • Net loss was $5.8 million compared to a net loss of $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2010. Consolidation charges totaled $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2011.
  • Adjusted net loss per diluted share was $0.06 compared to a net loss per diluted share of $0.05 in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $1.5 million compared to EBITDA of $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2010.

Rod Hershberger, President and Chief Executive Officer of PGT said, "Sales in our first quarter were flat year over year, reflecting our shift in market focus with Florida sales up 7.9% and out-of-state sales down 32.3%. January and February brought another low in housing starts and permits, however, that trend changed in March. Our monthly sales in January and February were also lower than prior year, but our March sales increased over prior year. Overall housing starts decreased 8% compared to the first quarter of 2010, driven by a decrease in single family starts."

Mr. Hershberger continued, "During the first quarter we completed approximately 60% of our plant consolidation, including filling over 250 new positions in Florida. We recorded approximately $2.6 million in plant consolidation expenses and are currently on schedule to complete our plant consolidation by the end of the second quarter." 

Jeff Jackson, PGT's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our vinyl products continue to gain traction, evidenced by a $1.0 million increase in vinyl WinGuard sales and a $0.5 million increase in PremierVue sales. Our decrease in adjusted EBITDA is due mainly to an increase in material prices, and operating inefficiencies related to our plant consolidation. Additionally, during the first quarter of 2011, we had approximately $0.6 million in additional selling and marketing expenses and a $0.5 million increase in non-cash stock compensation expense."  

Mr. Jackson continued, "During the quarter, we used $5.5 million of cash in operations. Our cash balance decreased $6.5 million during the quarter to $15.5 million, primarily due to $3.1 million of cash used for plant consolidation expenses and the payment of $2.8 million in employee bonuses earned in 2010. Our net debt was $34.5 million and our corresponding leverage ratio is 2.2X at the end of the first quarter of 2011."
