Fiscal Second Quarter 2020 Highlights
DALLAS, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSW Industrials, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSWI) today reported results for the fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2019.
During the fiscal second quarter of 2020, CSWI reported revenue of $101.3 million, representing 10.6% growth as compared to $91.6 million in the prior year period. Higher revenue was driven by increased sales in both the Industrial Products and Specialty Chemicals segments, with 6.3% resulting from organic growth and the remainder due to acquisition related revenue. By end market, organic sales were predominantly driven by heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC/R), architecturally-specified building products, plumbing, and energy, partially offset by the general industrial end market.
GAAP operating income from continuing operations in the fiscal second quarter of 2020 increased 17.0% to $20.1 million, compared to $17.2 million in the prior year period, primarily driven by growth in sales volumes and changes in product mix. Adjusted operating income from continuing operations, which excludes the gain on the sale of a facility in the fiscal second quarter of 2020, increased 12.5% to $19.3 million compared to $17.2 million in the prior year period.
GAAP net income from continuing operations in the fiscal second quarter of 2020 was $8.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to $12.4 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, in the prior year period. The reduction in GAAP net income and earnings per share was primarily due to a one-time charge to terminate the U.S. qualified pension plan, which was $7.0 million pre-tax (of which only $0.5 million was cash) and $5.4 million after-tax and is reflected in other expense. Adjusted to exclude one-time items and applying a normalized tax rate to both years, adjusted net income from continuing operations in the fiscal second quarter of 2020 was $14.0 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, compared to $12.4 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, in the prior year period.
Joseph B. Armes, CSW Industrials’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our momentum continued in the fiscal second quarter as our team executed well across our businesses. Our impressive 6.3% organic growth was driven by contributions from both segments, despite a mixed macroeconomic backdrop.”
Armes continued, “As we look to the balance of the year, we are encouraged by the continued strength in our largest end markets and our ability to execute despite macro uncertainties. Our team continues to drive our strategic growth initiatives and new product introductions. We expect this combination of factors to enable us to continue to deliver a total growth rate in excess of the end markets we serve.”
Fiscal Second Quarter Results of Operations
Consolidated revenue from continuing operations increased 10.6% to $101.3 million, compared to $91.6 million in the prior year period.
Industrial Products segment revenue increased 14.7% (7.5% organic) to $62.8 million, compared to $54.7 million in the prior year period. Sales volumes drove most of the strong organic revenue growth in the HVAC/R, plumbing, and architecturally-specified building products end markets. GAAP segment operating income increased 15.5% to $16.4 million, compared to $14.2 million in the prior year period. There were no adjustments to GAAP results in the current or prior year period.
Specialty Chemicals segment revenue improved 4.5% to $38.6 million, compared to $36.9 million in the prior year period. Growth was primarily driven by increased sales volumes into the energy and architecturally specified building products end markets, partially offset by the general industrial end market. GAAP segment operating income rose to $7.1 million, compared to $6.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted to exclude non-recurring items in the current year quarter, solely related to the sale of a facility, segment operating income was $6.4 million, compared to $6.2 million in the prior year period or an increase of 3.4%.
Consolidated gross profit increased 12.3% to $47.4 million, compared to $42.2 million in the prior year period, primarily as a result of the positive impact of leverage from increased sales and a non-recurring $0.8 million gain on the sale of a facility in the current year quarter. Gross margin as a percentage of sales improved 70 basis points to 46.8%, compared to 46.1% in the prior year period.
Consolidated operating expenses in the current quarter were $27.3 million, or 26.9% of sales, and as a percent of sales improved 40 basis points over the prior year level of 27.3%, or $25.0 million. As a percent of sales, the improvement was driven by sales leverage, partially offset by additional personnel related expenses and costs associated with acquisitions.
Reported net income from continuing operations of $8.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share compared to $12.4 million, or $0.79 per diluted share in the prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to a one-time, after-tax charge of $5.4 million or $0.35 per diluted share to terminate the Company’s U.S. qualified pension plan. Adjusted to exclude one-time items and applying a normalized tax rate in both years, adjusted net income from continuing operations in the fiscal second quarter of 2019 improved 12.9% to $14.0 million, or $0.92 per diluted share (16.5% increase), compared to adjusted net income from continuing operations of $12.4 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, in the prior year period.
Following quarter end, CSWI declared its third consecutive quarterly regular cash dividend of $0.135 per share, payable on November 14, 2019, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 31, 2019.
All percentages are calculated based upon the attached financial statements and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

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.
