Lennox International Reports Record Third Quarter Revenue and Profit and Raises 2020 Guidance

DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2020. All comparisons are to the prior-year period. The company's prior-year insurance references relate to the July 2018 tornado damage at a Residential manufacturing facility in Iowa. Adjusted revenue and profit for the first nine months of 2019 exclude non-core Refrigeration businesses divested in the first half of that year.

Lennox International reported record third-quarter revenue of $1.06 billion, up 2%. GAAP operating income was a third-quarter record $167 million, up 7%. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $3.42, up 16%. The third quarter of 2019 included an insurance benefit of $2 million.

Total adjusted segment profit was a third-quarter record $177 million, up 1% from the prior-year quarter that included $16 million of insurance benefit. Total adjusted segment margin was 16.7% compared to the third-quarter record 17.0% in the prior-year quarter with the insurance benefit. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was a third-quarter record $3.53, up 6%.

"Lennox International posted record third-quarter revenue and profit driven by the performance of our Residential business in the quarter," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "Residential revenue rose 13% and set a new record for any quarter at $722 million. Revenue from replacement business was up low-double digits, and revenue from new construction was up mid-teens. Residential segment profit grew 21% to a third-quarter record $153 million, and segment margin expanded 140 basis points to a third-quarter record 21.2%. On an operational basis excluding $16 million of insurance benefit in the prior-year quarter, segment profit was up 38% and segment margin expanded 390 basis points.

"Turning to our commercial-facing businesses, both Commercial and Refrigeration continued to be more impacted than Residential from the pandemic, but the year-over-year decline moderated in the third quarter from what we saw in the second quarter this year. In Commercial, revenue and profit were down 18%. Commercial equipment revenue was down 20%, and service revenue was down low-double digits. Segment margin expanded 10 basis points to 18.7%. In the Refrigeration segment, revenue was down 14% at constant currency, with North America down high-teens and Europe down high-single digits. Refrigeration profit declined 34%, and segment margin contracted 350 basis points to 10.4%. 

"We continue to face highly uncertain economic conditions in the fourth quarter and remain cautious on the potential impact from the pandemic heading into the winter season. The company remains competitively well-positioned to capitalize on market opportunities with a seasoned team experienced in managing through downturns, while continuing to invest and advance the company's position for the future. For 2020, we are raising revenue guidance from a decline of 10-15% to a decline of 5-9% for the full year. We are raising 2020 guidance for adjusted EPS from continuing operations from a range of $7.90-$8.70 to $9.05-$9.65. And we are raising free cash flow guidance from approximately $340 million to $425 million this year as the company maintains a strong balance sheet with strong cash generation."

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue: Revenue was a third-quarter record $1.06 billion, up 2% with volume, price and mix favorable to revenue. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue.

Gross Profit: Gross profit was $323 million, up 8%, and gross margin was 30.6%, up 170 basis points.

Reconciliation to U.S. GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) Measures

(Unaudited, in millions, except per share and ratio data)



Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures



To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements and segment net sales and profit presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, additional non-GAAP financial measures are provided and reconciled in the following tables.  In addition to these non-GAAP measures, the Company also provides rates of revenue change at constant currency on a consolidated and segment basis if different than the reported  measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company's business trends and operating performance. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Kysor Warren business. The results from operations for this business have been shown in the tables below as "Non-core business results".
