ATLANTA, May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Select Interior Concepts, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIC), a premier installer and nationwide distributor of interior building products, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. FIRST QUARTER 2021 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS COMPARED TO FIRST QUARTER 2020 Consolidated net revenue of $137.8 million, compared to $134.4 millionGross profit was $33.9 million, compared to $30.7 millionNet loss was ($1.8) million, or ($0.07) earnings per share (EPS), compared to ($4.0) million, or ($0.16) EPSAdjusted EBITDA of $9.6 million, compared to $4.5 millionOperating cash flow provided $5.7 million, compared to $7.8 millionLiquidity of $79.2 million, including $4.1 million of cashAchieved $1.0 million in Q1 2021 savings from our newly implemented operational efficiency initiatives. Chief Executive Officer L.W. (Bill) Varner Jr. commented, “The year is off to a good start for SIC. Both of our business units performed to plan and realized growth, enabling us to increase total revenue by 2.5% over last year’s period. Adjusting for products we purposefully discontinued in 2020, total revenue rose by 5.0%. During the quarter, we also achieved the approximately $1.0 million that was anticipated in savings from the operational efficiency steps we identified in 2020. Additionally, we successfully launched key growth initiatives in RDS and ASG. Our growth initiatives are designed to expand our customer base, product offering and geographic presence and to enhance the technology we offer, providing the fuel for SIC to accelerate growth and, in the process, increase shareholder value. “We are seeing many positive trends in the industry and expect the company’s performance to reflect the same in the second quarter. Housing starts remain robust, repair & remodel is strengthening for large interior projects, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is abating. While business logistics remain tight and there have been signs of input cost inflation, we have been managing these challenges and are pleased to reaffirm the guidance estimate we provided in March, which called for Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $54 million to $58 million for 2021.” RESULTS FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2021 Net revenue for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 2.5% to $137.8 million, compared to net revenue of $134.4 million for the first quarter of 2020. Net revenue excluding intentionally exited product categories increased 5.0% year over year. Residential Design Services (“RDS”) segment net revenue increased 1.3%, or 4.3% excluding intentionally exited product categories. The increase was largely due to increased volume, primarily in the West, partially offset by an expected shift in price/mix. Architectural Surfaces Group (“ASG”) segment net revenue increased 4.1%, or 5.8% excluding intentionally exited product categories. This increase was primarily driven by favorable price/mix. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 increased by 10.3% to $33.9 million, compared to $30.7 million for the first quarter of 2020. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 24.6%, compared to 22.8% for the first quarter of 2020. In the RDS segment, gross margin increased 1.0 percentage points to 23.0% due to increased volume which resulted in better absorption of fixed costs, along with cost savings from organizational design and productivity workstream initiatives. In the ASG segment, gross margin increased 2.7 percentage points to 26.5% primarily due to improvements in price/mix and the launch of new products with higher margins. Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $34.4 million, or 24.9% of net revenue, compared to $32.7 million, or 24.3% of net revenue, for the first quarter of 2020. This increase primarily reflects additional equity-based compensation costs and professional services fees related to improvements in strategic sourcing, organizational design and productivity, and optimization initiatives. SG&A for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020 included $4.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively, of equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs. On an adjusted basis, which excludes equity-based compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, SG&A was $29.9 million, or 21.7% of net revenue for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $31.8 million, or 23.7% of net revenue for the first quarter of 2020. For the first quarter of 2021, net loss was ($1.8) million, or ($0.07) EPS, compared to ($4.0) million, or ($0.16) EPS, for the first quarter of 2020. Net loss for the first quarters of 2021 and 2020 included $2.2 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of other expense which resulted from the partial release of the indemnification asset associated with the unrecognized tax benefits related to the TAC acquisition. EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 increased 28.8% to $3.0 million, compared to EBITDA of $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of equity compensation and certain transitional or non-operating costs, increased by 111.1% to $9.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $4.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. For the first quarter of 2021, Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue was 7.0%, compared to 3.4% for the first quarter of 2020. Operating cash flow totaled $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $7.8 million for the first quarter of 2020 primarily as a result of changes in working capital. Liquidity from cash-on-hand and borrowing availability under the Company’s revolving credit facility totaled $79.2 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $72.2 million at March 31, 2020. 2021 INTEGRATION AND COST SAVINGS INITIATIVES The Company began implementing some of the previously communicated targeted initiatives to drive incremental EBITDA from identified opportunities in strategic sourcing, organizational design and productivity, insurance programs, back office integration, and facility footprint optimization. As previously communicated, these opportunities are new and not COVID-19 related, and are structural enhancements in operations that we expect will be sustainable. We achieved approximately $1.0 million in cost savings in the first quarter of 2021. The Company is on track to deliver the $8 million to $10 million targeted annualized structural cost savings, with a goal of 50% impact in 2021.
