MEDINA, OH – July 27, 2020 –

RPM International Inc. (NYSE: RPM), a world leader in specialty coatings, sealants and building materials, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2020 fourth quarter and year ended May 31, 2020.

“As anticipated, our growth was temporarily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, but proactive measures, including our MAP to Growth program, helped mitigate the impact on our bottom line,” stated RPM chairman and CEO Frank C. Sullivan. “As a result, while our fourth-quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share were below last year’s all-time high levels, they were still our second best on record.”

“RPM’s consolidated sales decline of 8.9% for the quarter reflected the impact of Covid-19 which, to various degrees, interrupted our manufacturing and distribution operations, as well as the maintenance, repair and construction activities of our customers around the world. On a geographic basis, our sales were essentially flat in the U.S., where construction and hardware channels were deemed essential, but were down about 25% in international markets, where these industries were halted to control the spread of the virus. Our better-than-expected top-line results were largely driven by growing demand in the U.S. for our Consumer Group’s small project paints, caulks, sealants, repair products, wood stains and specialty cleaners. The segment experienced record demand for these products via e-commerce retailers, as well as the online portals and brick-and-mortar stores of its DIY home improvement retail partners. The Consumer Group’s strong performance relative to our other segments underscores the benefit of our operating company portfolio, which is strategically balanced between consumer and industrial businesses,” continued Sullivan.

“Over the course of the pandemic, we have remained focused on protecting the health and well-being of our associates and their family members. We instituted comprehensive safety protocols to keep our employees healthy in the workplace, while allowing associates whose jobs can effectively be performed remotely to do so,” stated Sullivan. “During the quarter, a number of our plants around the world were temporarily closed due to Covid-19, either because of government mandates or for disinfecting and cleaning. Thanks to our associates’ efforts to follow our protocols, nearly all of our manufacturing facilities have been open and operational since our fiscal year end.”
