Janus International Group Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Delivered 33.8% revenue growth for the quarter, including 27.1% organic improvementClosed acquisition of DBCI, a leading manufacturer of steel roll-up doors and building productsClosed acquisition of ACT, a premier provider of self-storage access control servicesAnnounced redemption of warrants to simplify the capital structure

TEMPLE, Ga., (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Janus International Group, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/215584155/composite JBI +1.55% (“Janus” or the “Company”), a leading provider of cutting-edge access control technologies and building product solutions for the self-storage and other commercial and industrial sectors, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 25, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Revenues of $187.8 million, a 33.8% increase compared to the third quarter of 2020, driven primarily by continued strong performance in key sales channels, including Restore, Rebuild, Replace (“R3”) up 68.6% and Commercial and Other up 104.1%, along with a $9.4 million contribution from the recent acquisitions of DBCI and Access Control Technologies (“ACT”) and the positive impact of the continuing pandemic recovery.

  • Net income was $17.7 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $20.8 million, or $0.32 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2020. The year over year decrease was driven by an increase in raw material, labor and logistics costs coupled with increased selling and general and administrative expenses, largely attributable to recent M&A activity.

  • Adjusted net income (defined as net income plus the corresponding tax effected add-backs shown in the Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation tables below) of $19.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $23.2 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. The year over year decrease was driven primarily by an increase in raw material, labor and logistics costs coupled with increased selling and general and administrative expenses.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $36.3 million, a 2.9% increase compared to the third quarter of 2020, driven by increased revenue, partially offset by higher cost of sales and general and administrative expenses. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenues was 19.3%, a decrease of 5.8% from the prior year period due primarily to higher costs impacting raw material, labor and logistics in advance of commercial actions and cost containment measures taking effect, as well as incremental additional costs associated with being a public company.

  • Operating cash flow of $14.9 million compared to $27.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, reflecting investments in working capital to support the continued growth of the business, primarily an increase in inventory in terms of raw material pricing and volume to ensure supply to our plants in the current raw material constrained environment.

Ramey Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The third quarter was an exciting time for Janus, where we built on the momentum of becoming a public company in June with the closure of two significant acquisitions and delivery of strong revenue growth, despite the widespread impact of higher costs across our industry. Our revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth included strong organic contributions along with positive impacts from M&A and highlight the strength of our business model within the self-storage and commercial industries. I am proud of our team’s efforts thus far to effectively navigate industry wide supply chain disruptions. While we continue to experience cost challenges associated with raw materials, labor, and logistics, we are confident that our deep customer relationships, buying power, and diverse geographic footprint put us in a strong position to mitigate the impact on our results using both commercial actions and cost-containment initiatives.”

Mr. Jackson continued, “At Janus we are accelerating our evolution as a public company. The additions of DBCI and ACT complement our existing suite of self-storage and industrial offerings and enhance our technology-driven growth initiatives. We are taking steps to simplify our capital structure via the recently announced mandatory redemption of our outstanding public warrants, which will be completed in mid-November 2021. With self-storage industry occupancy rates in the low-90% level and a well-capitalized facility ownership base, we look forward to a sustained period of demand growth for both our R3 and new construction businesses. That strength, coupled with a tremendous runway of opportunity for our commercial and industrial end markets, is expected to drive long-term value creation for all of our stakeholders.”

2021 Financial Outlook:

Based on the Company’s current business outlook, Janus is providing 2021 guidance as follows:

  • Revenue in a range of $718 million to $738 million, which represents a 32.6% increase at the midpoint as compared to 2020 levels.

  • Management Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $149 million to $155 million, which represents an increase of 5.9% at the midpoint as compared 2020 levels.

These preliminary results are derived from preliminary internal financial information and are subject to revision. The estimates set forth above were prepared by the Company’s management and are based upon a number of assumptions. See “Forward-Looking Statements.”

As part of this release, and consistent with the company’s second quarter 2021 earnings release, Janus is providing a reconciliation of the company’s Management Adjusted EBITDA to the Adjusted EBITDA reported in public filings. Management Adjusted EBITDA excludes sponsor management fees, acquisition expenses, Nok�“-related startup costs, and other non-recurring expenses. Beginning in full-year 2022, the company expects there to be minimal ongoing differences between Adjusted EBITDA and Management Adjusted EBITDA and therefore currently anticipates reporting only Adjusted EBITDA for 2022 and beyond.

Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements in this communication, including the estimated guidance provided under “2021 Financial Outlook” herein, may be considered “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this communication are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to statements regarding Janus’ positioning in the industry to strengthen its pipeline and deliver on its objectives and Janus’ belief regarding the demand outlook for Janus’ products and the strength of the industrials markets. When used in this communication, words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions, as they relate to the management team, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the current beliefs of Janus’ management, based on currently available information, as to the outcome and timing of future events, and involve factors, risks, and uncertainties that may cause actual results in future periods to differ materially from such statements.

In addition to factors previously disclosed in Janus’ reports filed with the SEC and those identified elsewhere in this communication, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements or historical performance: (i) risks of the self-storage industry; (ii) the highly competitive nature of the self-storage industry and Janus’ ability to compete therein; and (iii) the risk that the demand outlook for Janus’ products may not be as strong as anticipated.

There can be no assurance that the events, results, trends or guidance regarding financial outlook identified in these forward-looking statements will occur or be achieved. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and Janus is not under any obligation and expressly disclaims any obligation, to update, alter or otherwise revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. This communication is not intended to be all-inclusive or to contain all the information that a person may desire in considering an investment in Janus and is not intended to form the basis of an investment decision in Janus. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements concerning Janus or other matters and attributable to Janus or any person acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements above and under the heading “Risk Factors” in Janus’ most recently filed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and its subsequent filings with the SEC.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Janus uses measures of performance that are not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Non-GAAP financial performance measures are used to supplement the financial information presented on a GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the relevant GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with information presented on a GAAP basis.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used by Janus to evaluate its operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions, including those relating to operating expenses and the allocation of internal resources. Accordingly, Janus believes Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Janus’ operating results in the same manner as its management and board of directors and in comparison with Janus’ peer group companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA provides useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of Janus’ business, as they remove the effect of certain non-recurring events and other non-recurring charges, such as acquisitions, and certain variable or non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation expense, amortization, and other non-operational, non-recurring items.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA rather than net income (loss), which is the nearest GAAP equivalent of Adjusted EBITDA. These limitations include that the non-GAAP financial measures: exclude depreciation and amortization, and although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may be replaced in the future; do not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest on debt, which reduces cash available; do not reflect the provision for or benefit from income tax that may result in payments that reduce cash available; exclude non-recurring items (i.e., the extinguishment of debt); and may not be comparable to similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, because the expenses and other items that Janus excludes in the calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the expenses and other items, if any, that other companies may exclude from these non-GAAP financial measures when they report their operating results. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
