"Masonite delivered another solid quarter of year-over-year net sales and Adjusted EBITDA* growth driven by steady demand and strong execution in our North American Residential segment," said Howard Heckes, President and CEO. "We have started shipments from two new door production facilities, in line with our strategy to deliver consistent and reliable supply. We also introduced new products and marketing initiatives aimed at supporting further growth and favorable mix. We believe that these initiatives, combined with thoughtful price-cost management, will allow us to effectively navigate near-term macro-economic headwinds and make continued progress toward our 2025 Centennial Plan^."

Second Quarter 2022 Discussion

Consolidated net sales were $762 million in the second quarter of 2022, a 15% increase from $662 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase resulted from a 19% increase in average unit price (AUP), partially offset by a 2% decrease from unfavorable foreign exchange, a 1% decrease in volume, and a 1% decrease due to a prior year divestiture.

  • North American Residential net sales were $608 million, a 23% increase compared to the second quarter of 2021, driven by a 21% increase in AUP and a 3% increase in volume, partially offset by a 1% decrease due to unfavorable foreign exchange.

  • Europe net sales were $74 million, down 16% compared to the second quarter of 2021 attributable to a 10% decrease due to unfavorable foreign exchange and a 6% decrease due to a prior year divestiture, as a 16% decrease in volume was fully offset by a 16% increase in AUP.

  • Architectural net sales were $75 million, a 1% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2021, driven by a 13% decrease in volume as well as a 1% impact from lower component sales and unfavorable foreign exchange, largely offset by a 13% increase in AUP.

Total company gross profit was $179 million in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 9% compared to $164 million in the second quarter of 2021. Gross profit margin decreased 120 basis points to 23.6%, as higher AUP was offset by the impact of inflation on raw materials and logistics costs, higher manufacturing wages and lower volume in our Europe and Architectural segments.

Selling, general and administration (SG&A) expenses were $90 million in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of approximately 10% compared to $83 million in the second quarter of 2021 primarily due to higher personnel costs, which includes increased incentive compensation, wage and benefit inflation and resources to support growth. SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 11.9%, 60 basis points lower as compared to the second quarter of 2021.

Net income attributable to Masonite was $59 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $35 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily driven by higher gross profit as discussed above, as well as the absence of $18 million in charges incurred in the second quarter of 2021 related to our previously announced restructuring plans and a loss on the disposal of our Czech business.

Adjusted EBITDA* of $118 million in the second quarter of 2022 increased approximately 7% from $111 million in the second quarter of 2021. Diluted earnings per share were $2.58 in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 83% compared to $1.41 in the comparable 2021 period. Diluted adjusted earnings per share* were $2.58 in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $2.23 in the comparable 2021 period, which excludes $18 million in charges as discussed above.

* See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Related Information" for definition and reconciliation of non-GAAP measures.

Balance Sheet, Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

At the end of the quarter, total available liquidity was $482 million, inclusive of $232 million in unrestricted cash and $251 million of availability under our ABL Facility and our AR Sales Program.

Cash provided by operations was $34 million for the six months ended July 3, 2022, as compared to $33 million in the prior year period. Capital expenditures were $40 million for the six months ended July 3, 2022, an increase from $30 million in the comparable period of 2021.

During the second quarter, Masonite completed the previously announced accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Agreement") and received the final delivery of approximately 320 thousand common shares. Combined with the initial delivery of 848 thousand common shares, the $100 million ASR transaction resulted in the retirement of nearly 1.2 million common shares at a volume-weighted average price of $85.63 per share.

Full Year 2022 Outlook

The Company affirmed its full year Net Sales and Adjusted EBITDA* outlook and increased Adjusted EPS* expectations as follows:

Net Sales Growth

+6% - 10% YoY

+8% - 12% ex. FX YoY

Adjusted EBITDA*

$445 - $475M

+8% - 15% YoY

Adjusted EPS*

$9.60 - $10.60

+18% - 30% YoY

"We are pleased with the strong results our team delivered in the first half of this year." said Russ Tiejema, Executive Vice President and CFO. "Looking forward, we are closely monitoring the demand outlook for the North American Residential markets in the second half, but given the progress we have already made in executing our growth strategy we remain confident in our ability to meet or exceed our full year outlook for Net Sales and Adjusted EBITDA*. As a result of our shareholder return initiatives, we are increasing our full year outlook for Adjusted EPS* to a range of $9.60 to $10.60 to reflect a lower share count, partially offset by a higher anticipated tax rate."

A quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA* and Adjusted EPS* to the corresponding GAAP information is not provided for the 2022 outlook because it is difficult to predict the GAAP measures that are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA* such as restructuring costs, asset impairments, share based compensation expense and gains/losses on sales of subsidiaries and PP&E.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Related Information

Our management reviews net sales and Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) to evaluate segment performance and allocate resources. Net assets are not allocated to the reportable segments. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which does not have a standardized meaning under GAAP and is unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to either net income or operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it does not include certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to Masonite adjusted to exclude the following items: depreciation; amortization; share based compensation expense; loss (gain) on disposal of property, plant and equipment; registration and listing fees; restructuring costs; asset impairment; loss (gain) on disposal of subsidiaries; interest expense (income), net; loss on extinguishment of debt; other expense (income), net; income tax expense (benefit); other items; loss (income) from discontinued operations, net of tax; and net income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interest. This definition of Adjusted EBITDA differs from the definitions of EBITDA contained in the indentures governing the 2028 and 2030 Notes and the credit agreement governing the ABL Facility. Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated under our ABL Facility or senior notes would also include, among other things, additional add-backs for amounts related to: cost savings projected by us in good faith to be realized as a result of actions taken or expected to be taken prior to or during the relevant period; fees and expenses in connection with certain plant closures and layoffs; and the amount of any restructuring charges, integration costs or other business optimization expenses or reserve deducted in the relevant period in computing consolidated net income, including any one-time costs incurred in connection with acquisitions. Adjusted EBITDA is used to evaluate and compare the performance of the segments and it is one of the primary measures used to determine employee incentive compensation. Intersegment sales are recorded using market prices. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, from an operations standpoint, provides an appropriate way to measure and assess segment performance. Our management team has established the practice of reviewing the performance of each segment based on the measures of net sales and Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to users of the consolidated financial statements because it provides the same information that we use internally to evaluate and compare the performance of the segments and it is one of the primary measures used to determine employee incentive compensation.

The tables below set forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to Masonite to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Net Sales. Management believes this measure provides supplemental information on how successfully we operate our business.

Adjusted EPS is diluted earnings per common share attributable to Masonite (EPS) less restructuring costs, asset impairment charges, loss (gain) on disposal of subsidiaries, loss on extinguishment of debt and other items, if any, that do not relate to Masonite’s underlying business performance (each net of related tax expense (benefit)). Management uses this measure to evaluate the overall performance of the Company and believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

Certain amounts in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and associated tables may not foot due to rounding. All percentages have been calculated using unrounded amounts.
