DALLAS, Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSW Industrials, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSWI), a diversified industrial growth company with well-established, scalable platforms and domain expertise across two segments: Industrial Products and Specialty Chemicals, today reported results for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2018.
Net revenue during the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $89.6 million, compared to $89.3 million in the prior year. Modestly higher revenue was driven by increased sales in the industrial products segment, partially offset by lower sales volumes in specialty chemicals. Net revenue in the fiscal first quarter of 2019 moderated as a result of a cooler spring and a slow start to the HVAC season, which was amplified by the strong preseason stocking activity by distributors in our fiscal fourth quarter of 2018. GAAP operating income from continuing operations increased 6.4% to $17.7 million, compared to $16.7 million in the prior year. The increase was driven primarily by $2.6 million in gains on the sale of two facilities as the Company continued to optimize manufacturing capacity and monetize non-essential assets, partially offset by negative product mix and increased material costs.
Net income from continuing operations in the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $14.0 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, compared to $10.3 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted to exclude one-time items and applying a normalized tax rate, adjusted net income from continuing operations in the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $12.0 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, compared to $11.0 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the prior year period.
Joseph B. Armes, CSW Industrials’ Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our team executed well and we reported adjusted earnings growth despite several challenges impacting our business. These factors included a cooler than normal spring that tempered HVAC demand, increased product costs, upfront expenses in efficiency programs which we expect to benefit our second half, and adoption of new revenue recognition standards, all of which moderated our reported results.”
First Quarter Results of Operations
Consolidated revenue increased to $89.6 million, compared with the prior year level of $89.3 million.
Industrial Products segment revenue was $53.9 million, compared to $53.3 million in the prior year. Higher revenue was mainly the result of increased sales volume in HVAC and plumbing end markets, partially offset by decreases in architecturally-specified building product end market and the adoption of ASC 606 Revenue Recognition. GAAP segment operating income was $13.9 million, compared to $13.7 million in the prior year. Adjusted to exclude non-recurring items related to the sale of a facility, segment operating income was $13.6 million, compared to $13.9 million in the prior year.
Specialty Chemicals segment revenue was $35.7 million, compared to $36.0 million in the prior year. Lower sales were driven by reduced volumes in the mining and HVAC end markets, partially offset by an increase in energy and rail end markets. GAAP segment operating income increased 17.7% to $6.5 million, compared to $5.5 million in the prior year. Adjusted to exclude non-recurring items primarily related the sale of a facility, segment operating income was $5.0 million, compared to $6.4 million in the prior year.
Consolidated gross profit increased to $42.1 million, compared to $41.9 million in the prior year. Gross margin as a percentage of sales was 47.0%, compared to 46.9% in the prior year.
Consolidated operating expenses decreased 3.4% to $24.4 million, or 27.2% of sales, compared to $25.2 million, or 28.2% of sales, in the prior year. The decrease was attributable to lower professional fees and restructuring and realignment activities in the prior year that did not recur.
Reported income from continuing operations was $14.0 million, or $0.88 per diluted share, compared to $10.3 million, or $0.65 per diluted share in the prior year. Adjusted to exclude one-time items and applying a normalized tax rate, adjusted income from continuing operations in the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $12.0 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, compared to adjusted income from continuing operations of $11.0 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the prior year.
The Company also announced that it has completed a sale of assets related to its Coatings business, which was previously classified as held for sale, to an unrelated third party. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed due to immateriality.

We use adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net income and adjusted operating income, together with financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as revenue, income from operations, operating expense, operating income and net income, to assess our historical and prospective operating performance and to enhance our understanding of our core operating performance. We also believe these measures are useful for investors to assess the operating performance of our business without the effect of non-operating items.
