Lennox International Reports Record Revenue and Profit in Second Quarter


DALLAS, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII), a leader in energy-efficient climate-control solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2022. All comparisons are to the prior-year period.

Lennox International reported record revenue of $1.37 billion in the second quarter, up 10%. At constant currency, revenue was up 11%. GAAP operating income was a record $227 million, up 5%. GAAP earnings per share was a record $4.96, up 10%.

Total segment profit rose 4% to a record $230 million. Total segment margin was 16.8%, down 110 basis points. Adjusted earnings per share rose 9% to a record $5.00.

"Lennox International posted new highs for revenue, profit and EPS, led by strong growth in our Residential and Refrigeration businesses as price continued to offset material inflation," said CEO Alok Maskara. "In Commercial, we are encouraged by the sequential improvement in quarterly margins even though our ability to satisfy strong demand remained constrained by supply chain shortfall and factory inefficiencies."

In Residential, revenue and profit set new highs. Residential revenue was up 17%, led by double-digit growth in both replacement and new construction sales. Segment profit rose 14%. Segment margin was 22.1%, down 50 basis points. Refrigeration set new records for second-quarter revenue and profit. Refrigeration revenue was up 14% as reported and up 20% at constant currency, led by more than 30% growth in North America. Refrigeration profit rose 73%, and segment margin expanded 470 basis points to 13.8%. Commercial revenue was down 13%, profit was down 62%, and segment margin contracted 1,010 basis points to 7.8%.

Maskara added, "Looking ahead for the company overall, the macroeconomic environment is challenging, but customer demand remains strong. Residential and Refrigeration businesses are performing well and capitalizing on growth opportunities while Commercial segment performance is improving. We are adjusting 2022 revenue growth guidance from 7-11% to 10-15%. We are also raising the low end of EPS guidance from $13.50-$14.50 to a range of $13.80-$14.50. And we reiterate plans for $400 million of total stock repurchases for the full year." 

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
Revenue: Revenue was a record $1.37 billion, up 10%. Volume was flat, price was up and mix was down. Foreign exchange had a 1% negative impact on revenue.

Gross Profit: Gross profit was $397 million, up 4%. Gross margin was 29.1%, down 180 basis points, impacted by inflationary pressures, factory inefficiencies and global supply chain disruptions.

Net Income: On a GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter was $177.2 million, or $4.96 per share, compared to $170.0 million, or $4.51 per share, in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted net income in the second quarter was $178.4 million, or $5.00 per share, compared to $172.0 million, or $4.57 per share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2022 excludes net after-tax charges of $1.2 million.

Cash from Operations, Free Cash Flow and Total Debt: Net cash from operations in the second quarter was $97 million compared to $192 million in the prior-year quarter as inventory returns back to normal seasonality post the Covid impact in recent years. Capital expenditures were approximately $21 million in the second quarter, the same as in the prior-year quarter. Free cash flow was $76 million compared to $171 million in the second quarter a year ago. Total debt at the end of the second quarter was $1.69 billion. Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $63 million at the end of the quarter. The company paid $33 million in dividends and repurchased $100 million of stock in the second quarter.

BUSINESS SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS
Revenue in the Residential Heating & Cooling business segment was a record $978 million, up 17%. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. Segment profit was a record $216 million, up 14%. Segment margin was 22.1%, down 50 basis points as favorable price was partially offset by higher material costs.

Revenue in the Commercial Heating & Cooling business segment was $220 million, down 13%. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. Segment profit was $17 million, down 62%, and segment margin was 7.8%, down 1,010 basis points, impacted by lower volume and manufacturing inefficiencies.

Revenue in the Refrigeration business segment was a record $169 million, up 14%. Foreign exchange had a 6% negative impact to revenue growth. Segment profit rose 73% to a second-quarter record $23 million. Segment margin expanded 470 basis points to 13.8%, driven by favorable price and higher volume.

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.
