PR Newswire

ELKHART, Ind., Aug. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LCI Industries (NYSE:LCII) ("LCI", or the "Company"), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lippert Components, Inc., supplies engineered components for the leading original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") in the recreation and industrial product markets, and the related aftermarkets of those industries, today reported second quarter 2018 results.

"We continued to see strong sales growth in our engineered components for the recreation and industrial products as reflected in our record $684 million sales for the second quarter," said LCI's CEO, Jason Lippert. "Aftermarket and adjacent OEM market sales both grew over 50 percent for the quarter, aided by recent acquisitions. Adjacent OEM market sales grew to $168 million for the quarter, up 54 percent from the second quarter of 2017. Aftermarket sales rose to $68 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 51 percent from the second quarter of 2017.  The outdoor lifestyle continues to gain momentum as recreational vehicle ("RV") demand remains strong with retail sales at historically high levels again in the second quarter.  Sales momentum has continued as the industry attracts a new generation of RV enthusiasts, supported by strong economic growth and consumer confidence."

"Our content per travel trailer and fifth-wheel increased ten percent year-over-year, the largest annual increase since 2012, and our content per motorhome increased 18 percent year-over-year, representing our fourth straight year of double-digit content growth for motorhomes," said Scott Mereness, LCI's President. "We continue to assess our operating efficiency and look for opportunities to invest in lean manufacturing and automation while meeting industry growth demands during one of the most volatile commodities environments in recent history due to the new steel and aluminum tariffs. Although operating margin improved in the second quarter of 2018 from the first quarter of 2018, raw materials inflation, due to the worldwide rising commodity prices that have occurred primarily from tariffs and tariff speculation, more than offset the margin improvement from our operational and pricing initiatives."

Second Quarter 2018 Results

Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of 2018 were $684 million, a 25 percent increase over 2017 second quarter net sales of $547 million. Net income in the second quarter of 2018 was $47.2 million, or $1.86 per diluted share, compared to net income of $40.1 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017.

The increase in year-over-year net sales reflects growth, despite the short-term correction in industry wholesale shipments as dealers normalize their inventory levels.

Net sales from acquisitions completed by the Company over the twelve months ended June 30, 2018, contributed $64 million in the second quarter of 2018. The organic growth rate was 14 percent for the second quarter and acquisitions provided the remainder of the 25 percent increase. Through continued focus on aftermarket channels for the Company's products, the Company increased net sales to the aftermarket in the second quarter of 2018 by 51 percent to $68 million.

The Company's content per travel trailer and fifth-wheel RV for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018, increased $308 to $3,412, compared to the twelve months ended June 30, 2017, of $3,104. This is the largest increase in five years for travel trailer and fifth-wheel RV content. The Company's content per motorhome RV for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018, increased $366 to $2,438, compared to the twelve months ended June 30, 2017, of $2,072. The content increases are a result of organic growth, including new product introductions, as well as acquisitions.

The health of the RV industry is determined by retail demand, which is up six percent through May 2018, as reported by Statistical Surveys, Inc., and will likely be revised upwards in future months as various states report.The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association's ("RVIA") current forecast for 2018 estimates a year-over-year increase of seven percent to approximately 540,000 units.  The RVIA's forecast for 2019 estimates a year-over-year increase of two percent to approximately 550,000 units.

Adjacent OEM market sales grew to $168 million for the quarter, up 54 percent from the second quarter of 2017. Aftermarket sales rose to $68 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 51 percent from the second quarter of 2017.

Income Taxes

The Company's effective tax rate was 24 percent for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to 36 percent for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. The decrease in effective tax rate was driven by the newly enacted tax rates from the Tax Cut and Job's Act.

Balance Sheet and Other Items

At June 30, 2018, the Company's cash and cash equivalents balance was $18 million, a decrease of $8 million from its balance of $26 million at the beginning of the year, primarily as a result of $55 million for capital expenditures and $29 million of dividend payments in excess of cash generated from operations in 2018. Additional borrowings increased the Company's outstanding debt to $215 million at June 30, 2018, primarily to fund $153 million of acquisitions.
