WINCHESTER , Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--November 2, 2020--Trex Company, Inc. (NYSE:TREX), the world’s number-one brand of composite decking and railing and leader in high-performance, low-maintenance outdoor living products, and a leading national provider of custom-engineered railing and staging systems, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Consolidated net sales for the 2020 third quarter were $232 million, 19% ahead of the 2019 third quarter. Trex Residential Products net sales increased 20% to $218 million with Trex Commercial Products contributing $13 million to net sales. Consolidated gross margin was 36.7%, compared to 42.4% in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin for Trex Residential Products and Trex Commercial Products was 37.4% and 24.4%, respectively. SG&A was $28 million, or 12.1% of net sales, compared to $27.4 million, or 14.1% of net sales, in the prior period. Net income for the 2020 third quarter was $43 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, representing increases of 2% and 3%, respectively, from net income of $42 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the 2019 third quarter. EBITDA increased 5% to $61.5 million and EBITDA margin was 26.6%.

During the 2020 third quarter, the Company recognized a charge of $6.5 million to the Trex Residential warranty reserve related to the legacy surface flaking issue that affected a portion of the products manufactured at the Nevada plant prior to 2007. Excluding the warranty charge, consolidated gross margin was 39.5%. Net income was $48 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, up 13% and 14%, respectively, and EBITDA increased 16% to $68 million and EBITDA margin was 29.4%.

“Trex brand leadership continues to position us at the forefront of strong secular trends for the composite decking and railing industry. Demand for Trex products continues to outpace supply reflecting consumer preferences for the superior aesthetics and high performance of our products and continued strength in the repair and remodel sector. Together with the compelling value proposition of our Enhance product line, these attributes are enabling Trex to accelerate conversion from the dominant wood decking market.

“Third quarter profitability, exclusive of the warranty charge, demonstrated the successful execution of our low-cost, highly-efficient operating model, which more than offset the anticipated increased labor and depreciation costs related to capacity expansion and COVID-19 management.” noted Bryan H. Fairbanks, President and Chief Executive Officer.


Nine Month 2020 Results

Net sales for the nine months of 2020 were $653 million, 12% above the $581 million reported for the comparable period in 2019. Trex Residential Products net sales were up 13% to $614 million, with Trex Commercial Products contributing an additional $38 million to net sales. Gross margin increased 40 basis points to 40.9%. SG&A was $92 million, or 14% of net sales, compared to $93 million, or 16.1% of net sales, in the prior period. Net income for the nine months of 2020 totaled $132 million, or $1.14 per diluted share, up 21.1% and 22.6%, respectively, compared to net income of $109 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, for the nine months of 2019. EBITDA increased 23% to $188 million with EBITDA margin gaining 260 basis points to 28.8%.

Exclusive of the warranty charge, gross margin increased 140 basis points to 41.9%. Net income was $137 million, or $1.18 per adjusted diluted share, up 26% and 27%, respectively, and EBITDA increased 28% to $194 million and EBITDA margin increased 360 basis points to 29.8%.

Summary and Outlook

“Year-to-date results demonstrate sustained demand for Trex composite decking and railings, which appeal to today’s consumer on several levels— aesthetics, performance, value and sustainability. Increasingly, the 95% recycled content in Trex Residential decking products plays an appealing and valuable role in consumer buying decisions. Feedback from our channel partners coupled with record web traffic to our “Trex.com” and “Decks.com” websites support expectations of strong future demand for our products.

“Our capacity expansion program is well underway. Three new production lines in Nevada are operational and the initial production lines at our new Virginia facility will begin start up in the first quarter of 2021, with additional production ramping through the second quarter.

“For the 2020 fourth quarter, we expect consolidated net sales of approximately $210 million to $220 million, representing 30% growth at the midpoint of the range. For full year 2020, we expect incremental gross margin to be at the low end of the 45% to 50% range, excluding the warranty charge, and reflecting COVID-19 related expenses, inflation and logistics costs associated with startup expenses as we approach our Virginia facility coming online. We expect SG&A as a percentage of net sales to improve by approximately 150 basis points for the full year compared to the prior year, driven by reduced brand spend and lower travel and entertainment costs.

“Based on current visibility, we expect 2021 to deliver another year of strong double-digit sales growth. Recently announced price increases on certain products that will go into effect at the beginning of the new year, combined with disciplined cost management and continuous improvement efforts, are expected to more than offset increased costs related to the new capacity ramp-up and expected inflation for raw materials. As a result of our improved visibility and a more stable economic backdrop, the Trex Board of Directors has reinstated our share buyback program,” Mr. Fairbanks concluded.

Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in this press release regarding the Company's expected future performance and condition constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company's actual operating results to differ materially. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the extent of market acceptance of the Company’s current and newly developed products; the costs associated with the development and launch of new products and the market acceptance of such new products; the sensitivity of the Company’s business to general economic conditions; the impact of seasonal and weather-related demand fluctuations on inventory levels in the distribution channel and sales of the Company’s products; the availability and cost of third-party transportation services for the Company’s products; the Company’s ability to obtain raw materials at acceptable prices; the Company’s ability to maintain product quality and product performance at an acceptable cost; the level of expenses associated with product replacement and consumer relations expenses related to product quality; the highly competitive markets in which the Company operates; cyber-attacks, security breaches or other security vulnerabilities; the impact of upcoming data privacy laws and the General Data Protection Regulation and the related actual or potential costs and consequences; material adverse impacts from global public health pandemics, including the strain of coronavirus known as COVID-19; and material adverse impacts related to labor shortages or increases in labor costs. Documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by the Company, including in particular its latest annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, discuss some of the important factors that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in these forward-looking statements. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.


Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use the non-GAAP financial measure of earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, EBITDA margin, to assess performance. We consider EBITDA to be an important supplemental indicator of our core operating performance because it eliminates many differences among companies in capitalization and tax structures, capital investment cycles and ages of related assets.

Gross margin, net income, diluted earnings per share, EBITDA and EBITDA margin were adjusted to exclude a provision of $6.5 million to the Trex Residential warranty reserve related to the legacy surface flaking issue that affected a portion of the products produced at the Nevada plant prior to 2007. Details of the adjustment are disclosed in Note 18 to the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in the Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2020.

We believe that the use of non-GAAP measures helps investors to gain a better understanding of our core operating results and future prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts the Company’s performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or forecasts. The non-GAAP measures included in this release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for our GAAP results.

Reconciliation of net income (GAAP) to EBITDA (non-GAAP) is as follows:
