HNI CORPORATION REPORTS EARNINGS
FOR FIRST QUARTER FISCAL YEAR 2021
MUSCATINE, Iowa (April 28, 2021) – HNI Corporation (NYSE: HNI) today announced sales for the first quarter ended April 3, 2021 of $484.3 million and net income of $15.0 million. GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share was $0.34, compared to $(0.56) in the prior year. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.36, compared to $0.21 in the prior year. GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations follow the financial statements in this release.
First Quarter Highlights
•Strong results in Residential Building Products: First quarter 2021 revenue grew 39 percent on a year-over-year basis, and operating margin expanded 600 basis points from prior-year, pre-COVID levels. This fueled a greater than 90 percent year-over-year increase in segment operating profit to a first quarter record of $39.8 million.
•Signs of improvement in Workplace Furnishings: First quarter 2021 revenue was down approximately 12 percent from the first quarter of 2020, on an organic basis. This rate of decline was the lowest since the beginning of the pandemic.
•Strong incremental margins: Non-GAAP consolidated operating income increased 67 percent year-over-year (or $9.4 million) to $23.3 million on two percent organic revenue growth (or $6.8 million). This equated to a 60 percent incremental operating margin, which was primarily driven by volume leverage in the Residential Building Products segment and solid cost control in the Workplace Furnishings segment, as both segments benefited from the Corporation’s annual cost savings initiatives and cost actions taken last year to combat pandemic pressures.
•High-quality balance sheet: Quarter-ending debt levels were $176 million, essentially unchanged from last quarter and down from $230 million at the end of the first quarter of last year. The gross leverage ratio at the end of the first quarter of 2021 was approximately 0.9x, slightly improved from last
