Pleasanton, CA - Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: SSD) today announced its fourth quarter 2014 results.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2014, Compared with the Three Months Ended December 31, 2013

Overview

Net sales increased 4.1% to $166.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 from $160.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. The Company had net income of $10.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $7.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. Diluted net income per common share was $0.21 for the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to $0.16 per common share for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Net sales

The Company's net sales increased in the North America segment and decreased in the Europe and Asia/Pacific segments in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013. North America net sales benefited from an improvement in economic activity in the region.

Segment net sales:
North America – Net sales increased 7.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, primarily due to increased unit sales volumes.
Europe – Net sales decreased 7.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, mostly due to the effects of foreign currency translations and slightly lower average selling prices, partly offset by increased unit sales volumes. Net sales in some regions of the segment have trended down from prior quarters due to weakening economic conditions in the region, as well as European currencies weakening against the United States Dollar.

Consolidated net sales channels and product groups:
Net sales to contractor distributors and lumber dealers increased in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the fourth quarter of 2013, due to increased home construction activity, while home center sales decreased slightly in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013.
Wood construction product net sales, including connectors, truss plates, fastening systems, fasteners and shearwalls, represented 84% of total Company net sales in the fourth quarters of both 2014 and 2013.
Concrete construction product sales, including adhesives, chemicals, mechanical anchors, powder actuated tools and reinforcing fiber materials, represented 16% of total Company net sales in the fourth quarters of both 2014 and 2013.

Gross profit

Gross profit increased to $72.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2014 from $69.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Gross profit as a percentage of net sales increased slightly to 43.7% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 43.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013.

North America – Gross profit margin decreased to 45.3% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 46.1% in the fourth quarter of 2013, primarily as a result of increases in factory overhead as a percentage of sales caused by increased costs on flat production volumes and warehousing and shipping costs, partly offset by decreases in material and labor costs.
Europe – Gross profit margin decreased to 35.7% in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 35.9% in the fourth quarter of 2013, as a result of increases in warehousing costs, factory overhead, on decreased production volumes, and labor costs each as a percentage of sales, partly offset by a decrease in the costs of materials.
Product mix – The gross profit margin differential between wood construction products and concrete construction products, which have lower gross profit margins, was 9% and 16% in the fourth quarters of 2014 and 2013, respectively, due to increased gross profit margins on concrete construction products.
