DALLAS, Aug. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSW Industrials, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSWI), a diversified industrial growth company with well-established, scalable platforms and domain expertise across three segments: Industrial Products; Coatings, Sealants & Adhesives; and Specialty Chemicals, today reported results for the fiscal first quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Net revenue during the fiscal first quarter of 2018 increased 16.6% to $98.0 million, compared to the prior year period of $84.1 million. Organic growth was 11.0%, and acquisitions contributed 5.6% to total growth.  The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to increases in our HVAC, mining, plumbing and energy end markets.

Net income in the fiscal first quarter of 2018 was $8.5 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $4.1 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted to exclude one-time expenses and applying a normalized tax rate, adjusted net income in the fiscal first quarter of 2018 was up 26.4% to $10.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $8.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Joseph B. Armes, CSW Industrials' Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with the strong start to fiscal 2018, as we saw strength across both our Industrial Products and Specialty Chemicals segments and began to realize the benefits of our efficiency initiatives. While we are encouraged by our results, we still see discrete challenges in some of the markets we serve.  We will continue to diligently manage our businesses, being mindful of costs and exploiting the positive opportunities we see." Armes continued "Our team is highly focused on continuing to integrate our business segments and drive efficiency initiatives. We are gratified that our manufacturing footprint rationalization programs are beginning to bear fruit as we continue to enhance shareholder value."

First Quarter Results of Operations
Consolidated revenue increased to $98.0 million, compared with the prior year level of $84.1 million.

Industrial Products segment revenue was $53.3 million, compared to the prior year of $43.5 million. Higher revenue was mainly the result of strong sales into HVAC and plumbing end markets, coupled with acquisition related revenue.  GAAP segment operating income increased to $13.6 million, compared to the prior year of $10.6 million.  Adjusted to exclude non-recurring expenses primarily related to restructuring and realignment, segment operating income increased 28.9% to $13.9 million, compared to $10.8 million in the prior year.

Coatings, Sealants and Adhesives (CS&A) segment revenue was $23.4 million, flat compared to the prior year of $23.4 million. GAAP segment operating income was $1.0 million, compared to the prior year of $1.6 million. Adjusted to exclude non-recurring costs primarily related to restructuring and realignment, segment operating income was $2.4 million, compared to $2.6 million in the prior year.  

Specialty Chemicals segment revenue was $21.4 million, compared to the prior year of $17.2 million. Higher sales were driven by increases in our energy, mining and HVAC end markets. GAAP segment operating income was $1.9 million, compared to the prior year of $1.1 million. Adjusted to exclude non-recurring costs primarily related to restructuring and realignment, segment operating income increased to $2.8 million, compared to $1.8 million in the prior year.

Consolidated gross profit increased to $42.4 million, compared to the prior year level of $38.2 million.  Gross margin as a percentage of sales was 43.2%, compared to 45.4% in the prior year period. Lower gross margin compared to the prior year primarily reflected the effect of restructuring and realignment costs and negative mix. In total, the Company incurred $2.5 million in restructuring and realignment costs during the current period, of which $2.2 million impacted gross margin.

Consolidated operating expenses decreased 8.7% to $28.1 million, or 28.7% of sales, compared to the prior year level of $30.8 million, or 36.6% of sales. Lower operating costs compared to the prior year were primarily attributable to CFO transition and severance costs and impairment due to consolidation of facilities that did not recur, partially offset by increases relating to acquisitions and variable operating costs associated with the increased organic revenue.  

Consolidated net income was $8.5 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $4.1 million, or $0.26 per diluted share in the prior year period. Adjusted to exclude one-time expenses and applying a normalized tax rate, adjusted net income in the first quarter of 2018 was $10.1 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $8.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in the prior year period.
