BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., October 27, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hayward Holdings, Inc. (Hayward") (NYSE: HAYW), a global designer, manufacturer and marketer of a broad portfolio of pool equipment and associated automation systems, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended October 2, 2021 of its fiscal year 2021.

CEO COMMENTS

"Our third quarter results were driven by our team’s ability to execute and capture the sustained demand for Hayward products as we continue to see strength in the pool market. I am extremely proud of Hayward’s ability to work through supply-side constraints and continue to utilize and expand product capacity, demonstrating our agile manufacturing capabilities and competitive positioning," said Kevin Holleran, Hayward’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the quarter we saw a continuation of key industry tailwinds and with our leading product portfolio and innovative technology we were able to further capture market share at improved profitability levels. While we anticipate inflationary and supply side pressures to persist through the end of the year, we are prioritizing pricing and productivity actions to help offset these headwinds. We remain encouraged by the ongoing trends developing in the outdoor living space, fueling sustainable growth for pools and pool products."

THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2021 CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Net sales increased by 56% to $350.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by higher volumes, mainly in residential pool equipment sales as we continued to see elevated demand from aftermarket upgrades and new construction. Net sales growth continues to benefit from a robust demand environment for outdoor living products, production capabilities, new products (especially those within our SmartPadTM offering), and pricing.

Gross profit increased by 53% to $162.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Gross profit margin decreased 95 basis points to 46.3%. The decrease in gross margin was driven by rapidly rising costs in raw materials and logistics expenses as a result of global supply chain constraints, partially offset by pricing actions and manufacturing leverage.

Selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased by 39% to $68.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in SG&A was primarily driven by volume related incentives, distribution and warranty costs, legal reserve, and other one-time expenses. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A decreased 240 basis points to 20%, compared to the prior year period. Research, development, and engineering expenses were $6.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, or 2% of net sales, as compared to $5.1 million for the prior year period, or 2% of net sales.

Operating income increased by 121% to $77.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase in operating income was driven by higher net sales and improved operating leverage partially offset by increased SG&A related to volume and one-time costs.

Net interest expense decreased by 35% to $11.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 primarily a result of debt repayment during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 of $365 million and lower interest rates as a result of the second quarter amendment to our Credit Facilities.

During the quarter we incurred an income tax expense of $14.3 million compared to $5.5 million for the prior year period.

Net Income increased by 231% to $50.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted Net income increased by 88% to $64.2 million.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by 61% to $98.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 87 basis points to 28.0%. Margin expansion was primarily driven by higher net sales and operating leverage.

Undistributed earnings for nine months ended October 2, 2021, used as the numerator in our EPS computation, is reduced by a non-cash charge due to the beneficial conversion feature related to the redemption of our Class A shares for common shares. Such one-time non-cash charge in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 is treated as a deemed dividend which in turn reduces undistributed earnings. There is no current or future income statement or cash impact due to this US GAAP accounting treatment.

THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2021 SEGMENT RESULTS

North America
Net sales increased by 62.1% to $298.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase was driven by higher sales of residential pool equipment and increased pricing.

Segment income increased by 87% to $91.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted segment income increased by 73% to $98.3 million.

Europe & Rest of World
Net sales increased by 29% to $52.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The increase was primarily driven by continued strong demand for pool products and a favorable impact from foreign currency exchange.

Segment income increased by 51% to $10.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted segment income increased by 48% to $11.2 million.

BALANCE SHEET AND LIQUIDITY

Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA for the last twelve months was 1.8 times compared to 5.2 times as of December 31, 2020. The reduction in total debt and leverage reflects debt repayments made from the proceeds from our March 2021 IPO and strong cash generation from operating activities of $199.2 million for the current year to date.

As of October 2, 2021, Hayward had cash and cash equivalents of $295.1 million and approximately $106.5 million available for future borrowings under our ABL Facility.

OUTLOOK

Given the strong performance in the first nine months of the fiscal year, increased visibility into the order file, and increased confidence in our ability to execute growth levers, Hayward is raising the net sales guidance for the full fiscal year 2021. Hayward now expects net sales growth of 59% to 62% year-over-year compared to its previously provided outlook of 54% to 58%.

While current demand levels and Hayward’s production capabilities remain strong, the adverse cost impact from the rapid rate of inflation and ongoing global supply chain disruptions are greater than previously anticipated. Despite the current cost environment, Hayward is reaffirming its Adjusted EBITDA guidance range for the full fiscal year 2021 of $405 million to $425 million, or a growth range of 75% to 84% year-over-year.

Reconciliation for the forward-looking full year fiscal 2021 Adjusted EBITDA outlook is not being provided, as Hayward does not currently have sufficient data to accurately estimate the variables and individual adjustments for such reconciliation. Hayward management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these variables and individual adjustments will have on its reported results. Please see the Forward-Looking Statements section of this release for a discussion of certain risks relevant to Hayward’s outlook.
