HARVEY, Ill., August 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Atkore Inc. (the "Company" or "Atkore") (NYSE: ATKR) announced earnings for its fiscal 2021 third quarter ended June 25, 2021.

"We are continuing to benefit from strong demand and outstanding execution amidst industry supply constraints. Atkore’s focus on delivering for our customers has enabled us to grow our business, expand margins and deliver value to our shareholders and customers. The volume growth was across many product categories, and we are optimistic about the continued end market demand across multiple verticals. During the quarter, we also successfully refinanced our debt and repurchased $75 million of Atkore common stock, further strengthening our balance sheet and demonstrating our diligent approach to deploying capital."

Waltz continued, "Given current market dynamics and our strong performance year-to-date, we are raising our fiscal year 2021 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA to $855-$875 million. We expect these favorable market dynamics to continue and combined with our strategic investments, we are also raising our perspective on fiscal 2022. Looking ahead, we will continue to invest in new products, marketing and business development to help improve Atkore’s position for the future."

Net sales increased by $468.8 million, or 121.8%, to $853.7 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021, compared to $384.9 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The increase in net sales is primarily attributed to increased average selling prices of $342.8 million which were mostly driven by the PVC electrical conduit and fittings product category within the Electrical segment and increased net sales of $26.7 million due to the acquisitions of Queen City Plastics and FRE Composites Group. Pricing for PVC products, as well as other parts of the business, are expected to return to more normal historical levels over time, but that time is uncertain. The increase in net sales was also driven by an increase in sales volume of $90.9 million across nearly all product categories within both the Electrical and the Safety & Infrastructure segments.

Gross profit increased by $243.5 million, or 254.1%, to $339.3 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021, as compared to $95.8 million for the prior-year period. Gross margin increased to 39.7% for the three months ended June 25, 2021, as compared to 24.9% for the prior-year period. Gross profit increased primarily due to higher average selling prices of $342.8 million, partially offset by higher input costs of steel, copper and PVC resin of $124.0 million.

Net income increased by $151.2 million, or 628.0%, to $175.3 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to $24.1 million for the prior-year period primarily due to higher gross profit and lower interest expense, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative costs, income tax expense and loss on extinguishment of debt.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by $210.5 million, or 330.4%, to $274.3 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to $63.7 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher gross profit.

Diluted earnings per share prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") was $3.64 for the three months ended June 25, 2021, as compared to $0.49 in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income per diluted share increased by $3.29 to $3.96 for the three months ended June 25, 2021, as compared to $0.67 in the prior year period. The increase in diluted earnings per share and adjusted net income per share is primarily attributed to higher net income.

Segment Results

Electrical

Net sales increased by $389.0 million, or 142.9%, to $661.2 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to $272.2 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The increase in net sales is primarily attributed to increased average selling prices of $290.6 million which was mostly driven by the PVC electrical conduit and fittings category and the metal electric conduit and fittings product categories and increased net sales of $26.5 million from the acquisitions of Queen City Plastics and FRE Composites Group. Pricing for PVC products, as well as other parts of the business, are expected to return to more normal historical levels over time, but that time is uncertain. Additionally, sales volume increased $64.1 million driven by increased volumes across all product categories.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 25, 2021 increased by $212.3 million, or 382.1%, to $267.8 million from $55.5 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margins increased to 40.5% for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to 20.4% for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margins was largely due to higher average selling prices in relation to changes in input costs, operational efficiencies and contributions from the acquisitions of Queen City Plastics and FRE Composites Group.

Safety & Infrastructure

Net sales increased by $80.1 million, or 70.7%, for the three months ended June 25, 2021 to $193.5 million compared to $113.4 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The increase is primarily attributed to increased average selling prices of $52.2 million driven by higher input costs of steel, and by higher volumes of $26.8 million primarily driven by increases across all product categories.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by $8.2 million, or 58.1%, to $22.4 million for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to $14.2 million for the three months ended June 26, 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margins decreased to 11.6% for the three months ended June 25, 2021 compared to 12.5% for the three months ended June 26, 2020. The Adjusted EBITDA increase is primarily due to the price and volume increases discussed above.

Segment Redefinition and Realignment

During the first quarter of 2021, Atkore made the decision to rename and reorganize its two reportable segments to better reflect each segment’s value proposition and go-to-market approach.

The Electrical Raceway segment, which was renamed as the Electrical segment, manufactures high quality products used in the construction of electrical power systems including conduit, cable, and installation accessories. This segment serves contractors in partnership with the electrical wholesale channel.

The Mechanical Products & Solutions segment, which was renamed as the Safety & Infrastructure segment, designs and manufactures solutions including metal framing, mechanical pipe, perimeter security and cable management for the protection and reliability of critical infrastructure. These solutions are marketed to contractors, original equipment manufacturers and end users.

Effective in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company also implemented the realignment of its segment financial reporting structure such that its domestic cable management and prefabrication modular businesses are now reflected in its Safety & Infrastructure segment. These businesses were previously reflected within the Electrical Raceway segment. Prior year results have been revised for the impact of the realignment for comparability.

Full-Year Outlook

Based on market trends and Atkore’s continued execution, the Company is increasing its outlook for Net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income per diluted share for fiscal year 2021. The Company expects Net Sales to be up approximately 60%, and Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $855 to $875 million. In addition, the Company expects Adjusted net income per diluted share to be in the range of $12.25 - $12.55. This updated outlook reflects Atkore’s expectation that the strong demand and industry supply constraints in the PVC electrical conduit business will continue through the rest of this fiscal year and that they will normalize in the next fiscal year.

In light of these trends and the current environment, the Company is also updating its perspective on fiscal year 2022. The Company expects fiscal year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA to be approximately $500 million - $550 million. The Company notes that this perspective may vary due to changes in assumptions or market conditions and other factors described under "Forward-Looking Statements."

Reconciliations of the forward-looking full-year 2021 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income per diluted share and full-year 2022 perspective for Adjusted EBITDA are not being provided as the Company does not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliations.

The Company assumes no obligation to update the information contained herein, which speaks only as of the date hereof.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes certain financial information, not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Because not all companies calculate non-GAAP financial information identically (or at all), the presentations herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. Further, these measures should not be considered substitutes for the performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. See non-GAAP reconciliations below in this press release for a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in evaluating the performance of our business and in the preparation of our annual operating budgets as indicators of business performance and profitability. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin allow us to readily view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons and identify strategies to improve operating performance.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before: depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, income tax expense (benefit), restructuring charges, stock-based compensation, loss on extinguishment of debt, certain legal matters, transaction costs, and other items, such as inventory reserves and adjustments, realized or unrealized gain (loss) on foreign currency impacts of intercompany loans and related forward currency derivatives, loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment, insurance recovery related to damages of property, plant and equipment and release of indemnified uncertain tax positions. We define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Net sales.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP measures, are useful for investors because management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin in evaluating the performance of our business.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share

We use Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share in evaluating the performance of our business and profitability. Management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by offering additional ways of viewing the Company’s results that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measure provide an indication of performance and profitability excluding the impact of unusual and or non-cash items. We define Adjusted net income as net income before stock-based compensation, loss on extinguishment of debt, intangible asset amortization, certain legal matters and other items, and the income tax expense or benefit on the foregoing adjustments that are subject to income tax. We define Adjusted net income per share as basic and diluted net income per share excluding the per share impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization, certain legal matters and other items, and the income tax expense or benefit on the foregoing adjustments that are subject to income tax.

Leverage Ratio - Net debt/Adjusted EBITDA

We define leverage ratio as the ratio of net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) to Adjusted EBITDA on a trailing twelve-month ("TTM") basis. We believe the leverage ratio is useful to investors as an alternative liquidity measure.

Free Cash Flow

We define free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less capital expenditures. We believe that Free Cash Flow provides meaningful information regarding the Company’s liquidity.
