Headwaters Incorporated Announces Results for Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 201206:00 EDT Thursday, April 26, 2012 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (Business Wire) -- Headwaters Incorporated (NYSE: HW), a building products company dedicated to improving lives through innovative advancements in construction materials, today announced results for its second quarter of fiscal 2012. Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Highlights Light building products revenue increased 19%, the highest year-over-year growth rate since March 2006 Heavy construction materials revenue increased 14%, reflecting growth in both product sales and service revenues Results highlight positive impact of operating leverage – revenue increased 15% and Adjusted EBITDA increased nearly five-fold Repaid $12.0 million of subordinated debt in the quarter, reducing annual cash interest expense by $1.8 million CEO Commentary “The improving business trends we saw in the first quarter of the year continued in the second quarter, which we view as an indication that we are now in a more positive operating environment,” said Kirk A. Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Headwaters. “We noted signs of strengthening end markets during the quarter, which favorably impacted our sales, as did warmer weather. “Equally important, the operating leverage we built into our business model over the past few years is translating into strong improvements in free cash flow and Adjusted EBITDA. We remain focused on our mission of becoming a top tier construction materials company and we are poised to do that as the economy continues to improve." Second Quarter Summary Headwaters' second quarter 2012 revenue increased by 15% to $129.6 million from $113.2 million for the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2012 was $12.5 million, a nearly five-fold increase from $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. Gross profit increased by 50% to $31.6 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $21.1 million in the second quarter of 2011, and operating loss for the second quarter of 2012 decreased to $(1.8) million from $(31.9) million in the second quarter of 2011. Improved operating results are directly related to increased sales combined with a strong contribution margin, as well as reduced fixed costs. Loss from continuing operations was $(18.2) million, or $(0.30) per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $(113.9) million, or $(1.88) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. Net loss including discontinued operations was $(20.6) million, or $(0.34) per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $(156.2) million, or $(2.58) per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011. There were several significant non-routine charges in the March 2011 quarter that contributed to the loss recorded in that period, including: $68.9 million - interest and fees related to our senior debt refinancing $37.0 million - impairment of coal cleaning assets (discontinued operations) $15.0 million - recording the final trial court judgment in the Boynton litigation $6.2 million - restructuring charges, including $1.4 million in discontinued operations Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Business Segment Performance                               Business Segment           Revenue           AdjustedEBITDA           Adjusted EBITDAMargin Light Building Products $74.3 million $11.7 million 15.7% Heavy Construction Materials $51.2 million $6.4 million 12.5% Energy Technology $4.1 million $0.2 million 4.9%   Six Months Ended March 31, 2012 For the six months ended March 31, 2012, Adjusted EBITDA was $32.9 million, more than double the Adjusted EBITDA of $16.3 million for the six months ended March 31, 2011. Due to the seasonality inherent in our business, the first half of our fiscal year's Adjusted EBITDA is expected to represent approximately 35% of Adjusted EBITDA for the entire year. Our total revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2012 was $267.1 million, up 7% from $249.0 million for 2011. Gross profit increased 25%, from $52.9 million in 2011 to $66.0 million in 2012. The operating loss of $(32.9) million in 2011 improved to a positive operating income of $2.6 million in 2012, and the loss from continuing operations decreased from $(132.6) million, or a diluted loss per share of $(2.20) in 2011, to a loss of $(31.5) million, or $(0.52) per diluted share, in 2012. The net loss including discontinued operations decreased from $(176.8) million, or a diluted loss per share of $(2.93) in 2011, to a net loss of $(44.3) million, or $(0.73) per diluted share, in 2012. Light Building Products Segment Headwaters' light building products segment is a national brand leader in innovative building products through superior design, manufacturing and channel distribution. The segment brands and brings to market a wide variety of building products, including vinyl siding accessories and manufactured architectural stone. Second quarter revenues in the light building products segment increased $11.6 million, or 19%, to $74.3 million, compared to $62.7 million for the second quarter of 2011. We experienced significant growth in sales of our siding and architectural stone product groups, with a small decrease in sales in our concrete block product group. Revenue growth was driven by an expansion of our distribution system, resulting in new customers in some key markets. In addition, we benefited from warm winter weather, improved end markets, and strong growth in some of our new product offerings. During the second half of fiscal 2011, we implemented a major restructuring initiative, which continues to positively impact gross margins and reduce SG&A costs. SG&A declined by $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to 2011, a reduction that was similar to the first quarter year-over-year decline. We also benefited from the positive operating leverage inherent in our business model, as evidenced by the strong impact that revenue growth had on gross margins and Adjusted EBITDA. Segment gross margin improved to 27% in the second quarter of 2012 from 17% in the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter 2012 Adjusted EBITDA increased more than five-fold to $11.7 million from $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. Heavy Construction Materials Segment Headwaters Resources is the largest domestic manager and marketer of coal combustion products (CCPs), including fly ash. Utilization of these materials improves performance of concrete and concrete construction products while creating significant environmental benefits. Second quarter revenues in the heavy construction materials segment increased by 14% to $51.2 million, compared to $45.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. We experienced revenue growth in both CCP sales and in CCP services provided to utilities. The Western region continued to post positive year-over-year shipments and several new service sites operated during the quarter, contributing to the overall growth. CCP service revenue represented 33% of total revenue for the second quarter, but is expected to be a lower percentage of the total segment revenue in the second half of our year as CCP sales expand during the construction season. Gross profit increased by 30% to $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, compared to $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2011, and operating income was $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. The improvements in gross profit and operating income were primarily the result of improved product sales, product mix, and our continuous improvement efforts to lower costs. Adjusted EBITDA increased by 64% to $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2012 from $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, reflecting strong operating leverage and the success of our cost reduction efforts. Low natural gas prices and the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("U.S. EPA") regulations have combined to force the shutdown of several coal combustion power plants, negatively impacting the recycling of CCPs. However, we have multiple sources of supply and a broad distribution system, which allows us to backfill CCPs in locations where power plants have closed, creating an opportunity for potential growth. EPA Update Legislation has passed the House and has been introduced in the Senate, Senate Bill 1751, providing a well-designed framework to manage the disposal of coal combustion products. Supporters of U.S. Senate Bill 1751 continue the process of seeking additional Democratic support to move the bill forward in the Senate. On April 18th, the House passed a short-term transportation bill creating an opportunity to hold a conference with the Senate on the Senate's previously passed transportation bill. The House added its fly ash bill (H.R. 2273) to the short-term transportation bill, resulting in fly ash disposal legislation also moving to conference with the Senate. Earthjustice and other environmental special interest groups recently filed a complaint suing the EPA, seeking to force a deadline on the EPA for the promulgation of a final regulation for the disposal of CCPs. We believe that stakeholders, except environmental activist groups, generally support a balanced, reasoned approach to fly ash disposal regulation. To protect its interests against environmental activists, and to support the beneficial recycling of fly ash, Headwaters filed an action against the EPA designed to lead to rational disposal regulations. Finally, the EPA has not completed its risk evaluation of encapsulated beneficial use of fly ash. When the risk evaluation is completed, we believe that the EPA should confirm its long standing support of the environmental benefits associated with the use of fly ash as a substitute for portland cement. Energy Technology Segment In our discontinued coal cleaning operations, we decreased our quarterly loss from $10.5 million in the first quarter, to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2012 largely through cost reduction efforts. We continue to negotiate with a number of prospective purchasers for our facilities and expect to sell our coal cleaning business to one or more buyers before the end of fiscal 2012. It is currently anticipated that the gross cash proceeds from the sale of the coal cleaning assets will be in the range of $15 to $25 million. HCAT sales were lower in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to reduced usage at one of our customer facilities and the timing of shipments. For the second quarter of 2012, revenue from continuing operations in our energy segment was $4.1 million compared to $5.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted EBITDA was $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2012 compared to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. Income Taxes In fiscal 2012, Headwaters does not expect to recognize income tax benefits attributable to its pre-tax net operating loss ("NOL") and tax credits because realization is dependent upon future income or capital gains from operations. Headwaters currently has a pre-tax NOL in the amount of $165.5 million and tax credits of $21.7 million, both of which can be carried forward for up to 20 years. Outlook “We are pleased with the positive trends that we are experiencing in our core business. Our second quarter financial results benefited from both an increase in revenue and lower costs due to prior restructuring activities," said Don P. Newman, Headwaters' Chief Financial Officer. “Trailing twelve months Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations through March 31, 2012 improved to $94.3 million from $77.7 million at September 30, 2011, an improvement of $16.6 million, or 21%. As a result, we reaffirm our 2012 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $85 million to $95 million, and we will continue to assess whether it is appropriate to change that range as the year progresses. “We repurchased substantially all of our outstanding 14.75% debt in the second quarter, and we anticipate calling all of our 16% debt in June. We have significantly improved our balance sheet over the past year. Looking ahead, we remain focused on debt repayment to reduce interest expense, improving our balance sheet and financial flexibility.” Discussion of EBITDA Headwaters has historically defined EBITDA as net income plus net interest expense, income taxes (excluding income tax credits generated), depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, foreign currency translation gain or loss and goodwill or other impairments. Any additional adjustments to EBITDA are detailed in the table that follows. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management to measure operating performance, as a supplement to our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by investors to measure a company's ability to service its debt and meet its other cash needs. The EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations as reflected in the following tables are consistent with the definitions Headwaters has used historically and with the definitions management intends on using in future periods when measuring operating performance. Management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are helpful in highlighting trends, because EBITDA excludes certain results of decisions that are outside the control of operating management and can differ significantly from company to company depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, tax jurisdictions, and capital investments. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business rather than by using GAAP results alone. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because the definition of EBITDA varies among companies and industries, our definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. Headwaters' calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and trailing twelve months (TTM) Adjusted EBITDA are reflected in the following tables. All amounts which follow are presented on a continuing operations basis and do not include the results from coal cleaning for any period. Additionally, due to the sale of our interest in the Blue Flint Ethanol facility, Adjusted EBITDA does not include any results from Blue Flint for any period.
