ATLANTA, Aug. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE: MWA) announced today that for its fiscal 2020 third quarter ended June 30, 2020, net sales were $228.5 million and net income was $11.2 million.

In the 2020 third quarter, the Company:

  • Achieved net sales of $228.5 million, a decrease of 16.7 percent as compared with $274.3 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Generated operating income of $20.0 million as compared with $47.2 million in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted operating income was $28.6 million, a decrease of 45.0 percent as compared with $52.0 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Earned net income of $11.2 million as compared with net income of $33.7 million in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted net income was $17.8 million, a decrease of 53.0 percent as compared with $37.9 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Reported net income per diluted share of $0.07 as compared with $0.21 in the prior year quarter.  Achieved adjusted net income per diluted share of $0.11 as compared with $0.24 in the prior year quarter.
  • Generated adjusted EBITDA of $43.8 million, a decrease of 33.0 percent as compared with $65.4 million in the prior year quarter.
  • Increased net cash provided by operating activities for the nine month period by $60.0 million to $77.8 million as compared with $17.8 million in the prior year period.

“Overall, I am extremely proud of our employees as they continue to respond impressively to the disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic and to adapt to the new environment.  During the third quarter, net sales were better than our expectations for a year-over-year decrease between 20 and 30 percent, as we worked closely with our customers and channel partners to reduce the effects of the pandemic on our business.  We were pleased to see a smaller-than-expected downturn in residential construction activity during the quarter, along with an increase in order activity by our customers after they quickly adjusted their inventory levels earlier in the quarter.  We realized a 16.7 percent decrease in consolidated net sales and incurred additional expenses related to the pandemic, which resulted in a 33.0 percent decrease in adjusted EBITDA.  However, with the team’s focused execution, we generated strong free cash flow during the quarter and have positioned ourselves well to face additional uncertainty from the pandemic as markets continue to recover,” said Scott Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mueller Water Products.

“During the quarter, we immediately took actions to mitigate the effects on our business of the decrease in volumes, and we executed initiatives to reduce operating expenses and prepare for continued uncertainty.  We recently announced the closure of our Woodland, Washington operations, which will be relocated to our new facility in Kimball, Tennessee.  We will continue to focus on balancing our actions to reduce costs with the pace and magnitude of the recovery.

“Although there is a high level of uncertainty regarding the pandemic, we remain hopeful that our end markets will continue to improve in the fourth quarter.  We saw a significant sequential growth in sales and orders in June, as construction activity and economic activity increased after the initial shelter-in-place orders.  Our expectation for fourth quarter sales to be between flat and 5 percent lower than the prior year reflects our updated views on the end markets and inventory positions in the channel.

“Although the pandemic continues to create significant challenges for our team members, our customers and our communities, I am confident that Mueller Water Products has taken the right steps to operate effectively in this new environment.  Given our strong and flexible balance sheet and improved operations, we are well positioned to strengthen our position in water infrastructure products and services.  In the near-term, we will continue to prioritize returning cash to shareholders through our quarterly dividend and executing on our key capital projects.  In addition to modernizing our manufacturing facilities and operations, we are executing our strategies to further incorporate technology into our Infrastructure products.  As we navigate challenging times ahead, we will maintain our focus on keeping our employees safe, protecting our communities, delivering exceptional products and support to our customers and increasing cash flow.”

Consolidated Results

Net sales for the 2020 third quarter of $228.5 million decreased 16.7 percent, or $45.8 million, as compared with $274.3 million in the 2019 third quarter.

Operating income of $20.0 million for the 2020 third quarter declined 57.6 percent, as compared with $47.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Expenses associated with addressing the COVID-19 pandemic reduced operating income by approximately $5.7 million in the quarter, which were partially offset by an estimated $3.2 million of lower SG&A expenses primarily due to reduced travel, trade shows and events.

During the quarter, the Company incurred $8.6 million of strategic reorganization and other charges, which have been excluded from adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA, that primarily relate to an accrual for a potential settlement with Siemens, facility relocation expenses and senior executive severance costs.

Adjusted operating income of $28.6 million for the 2020 third quarter decreased 45.0 percent, as compared with $52.0 million in the prior year quarter.

Segment Results

Infrastructure

Net sales for the 2020 third quarter of $209.9 million decreased 16.1 percent, or $40.3 million, as compared with $250.2 million in the 2019 third quarter.  This decrease was primarily due to reduced shipment volumes related to the pandemic, which was partially offset by higher pricing.

Operating income and adjusted operating income were each $43.8 million.  Adjusted operating income decreased $19.1 million, or 30.4 percent, to $43.8 million, primarily due to lower shipment volumes and $4.5 million of expenses related to the pandemic, partially offset by higher pricing and lower SG&A expenses from temporary cost savings initiatives related to the pandemic.

Adjusted EBITDA of $56.0 million decreased 24.5 percent, or $18.2 million, as compared with $74.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Technologies

Net sales for the 2020 third quarter decreased 22.8 percent to $18.6 million primarily due to lower volumes related to the pandemic, which was partially offset by higher pricing.

Operating loss and adjusted operating loss were each $3.8 million.  Adjusted operating loss was $1.6 million higher as compared with a $2.2 million operating loss in the prior year quarter, primarily due to lower volumes and $0.7 million of expenses related to the pandemic, partially offset by lower SG&A expenses and higher pricing.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.3 million to a loss of $1.5 million as compared with a loss of $0.2 million in the prior year quarter.

Interest Expense, Net

Interest expense, net for the 2020 third quarter was $6.1 million as compared with $4.2 million in the prior year quarter.  The increase in net interest expense in the quarter resulted from lower capitalized interest and a decrease in interest income.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the 2020 third quarter was $3.4 million, or 23.3 percent of income before tax, and for the prior year quarter was $8.9 million, or 20.9 percent of income before tax. 

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine month period ended June 30, 2020 improved $60.0 million to $77.8 million as compared with $17.8 million in the comparable prior year period, primarily driven by improvements in working capital management and the timing of tax payments.  Net cash provided by operating activities was adversely affected by the $22.2 million payment associated with the Walter Tax settlement in the first quarter of this year.

The Company invested $13.9 million in capital expenditures during the third quarter as compared with $22.4 million in the prior year quarter.  The year-to-date total of capital expenditures of $51.2 million decreased $1.7 million compared with the 2019 year-to-date total of $52.9 million.

Free cash flow (defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures) for the nine month period ended June 30, 2020 increased $61.7 million to $26.6 million as compared with negative free cash flow of $35.1 million in the comparable prior year period.

As of June 30, 2020, Mueller Water Products had $447.6 million of total debt outstanding and $170.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, and the Company’s net debt leverage ratio was 1.5 times.  There are no maturities on this debt until June 2026 and the Company’s 5.5% senior unsecured notes have no financial maintenance covenants.  On July 30, 2020, the Company renewed and extended its asset based lending agreement (ABL Agreement), which was set to expire in 2021.  The new ABL Agreement has similar terms and terminates on July 29, 2025.  As of June 30, 2020, the Company did not have any amounts borrowed under the ABL Agreement.  Based on June 30, 2020 data, the Company had approximately $116.1 million of excess availability under its ABL Agreement, bringing its total liquidity to $286.8 million. 

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2020 Outlook

As expected, during the third quarter the majority of Mueller Water Product's customers focused on maintaining essential services and completing existing projects, where possible.  The level of repair and replacement and project activity varied greatly depending on the effects of shelter-in-place orders and social distancing practices.  The Company continues to expect delays in some ongoing projects and approvals of new projects, which will impact its project-related areas of business, principally metering, leak detection and specialty valve products.

The residential construction end market, which made up approximately 25 to 30 percent of 2019 consolidated net sales, improved at a faster pace than expected during the third quarter, following a sharp decrease in activity in many regions in the first half of the quarter.  With mortgage rates at historic lows, relatively low lot inventories, pent-up demand and supportive demographic trends, the Company anticipates that residential construction activity could continue to improve.  However, the pace of the recovery will continue to vary greatly and is highly dependent on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the Company withdrew the previously announced full-year 2020 financial guidance, which had been issued on February 4, 2020, it is providing guidance for certain financial metrics for its fourth quarter and full-year ended September 30, 2020.

Mueller Water Products currently anticipates that consolidated net sales for its 2020 fourth quarter will be between flat and 5 percent lower as compared with the prior year quarter.  As a reminder, given the Company’s fixed cost structure, especially for its core products, the decrease in volumes will lead to a greater decline in adjusted EBITDA for the quarter.  The Company does expect its adjusted EBITDA conversion margin to improve relative to the third quarter.  As a result, adjusted EBITDA is anticipated to be between flat and 10 percent lower as compared with the prior year quarter.  Additionally, the Company expects to generate positive free cash flow during the fourth quarter and increase the cash on its balance sheet at the end of September 2020.

The Company is refining its guidance for certain financial metrics for the full-year 2020:

  • Net interest expense between $25.5 million and $26.0 million.
  • Effective income tax rate between 23 percent and 24 percent.
  • Depreciation and amortization between $57 million and $58 million.
  • Capital expenditures between $71 million and $75 million.

Conference Call Webcast

Mueller Water Products’ quarterly earnings conference call will take place Thursday August 6, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. ET.  Members of Mueller Water Products’ leadership team will discuss the Company’s recent financial performance and respond to questions from financial analysts.  A live webcast of the call will be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.  Please go to the website (www.muellerwaterproducts.com) at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the call to register, download and install any necessary software.  A replay of the call will be available for 30 days and can be accessed by dialing 1-866-461-2738.  An archive of the webcast will also be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company’s results as determined under GAAP, the Company also provides non-GAAP information that management believes is useful to investors.  These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and securities analysts, investors and other interested parties should not consider any of these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.  These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Company presents adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as performance measures because management uses these measures in evaluating the Company’s underlying performance on a consistent basis across periods and in making decisions about operational strategies.  Management also believes these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of the Company’s recurring performance.

The Company presents net debt and net debt leverage as performance measures because management uses them in evaluating its capital management, and the investment community commonly uses them as measures of indebtedness.  The Company presents free cash flow because management believes it is commonly used by the investment community to measure the Company’s ability to create liquidity.

The calculations of these non-GAAP measures and reconciliations to GAAP results are included as an attachment to this press release and have been posted online at www.muellerwaterproducts.com.
