DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII) today reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2019 results. All comparisons are to the prior-year period. Adjusted revenue and profit exclude non-core Refrigeration divestitures. The company's tornado and insurance references relate to the July 2018 tornado damage at a Residential manufacturing facility in Iowa. As previously announced, the company reached a final agreement with its insurers for total insurance proceeds of $368 million, which have been received over the course of 2018-2019. A final chart of the insurance recovery and financial impact from the tornado for 2018-2019 is archived on the company's website as presented at the 2019 Investment Community Meeting in December.

For the fourth quarter, GAAP and adjusted revenue was $885 million. GAAP revenue was up 5%. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. GAAP operating income was a fourth-quarter record $192 million, up 64%. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was a fourth-quarter record $2.92, up 57%.

On an adjusted basis, excluding the impact from divestitures, revenue was up 8% to a new fourth-quarter high. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. Total segment profit increased 19% to a fourth-quarter record $133 million, and total segment margin expanded 140 basis points to a fourth-quarter record 15.1%. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations rose 24% to a fourth-quarter record $2.45.

For the full year, GAAP revenue was $3.81 billion, down 2% including a negative 5% impact from divestitures. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. GAAP operating income was a record $657 million, up 29%. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $10.38, up 18%.

On an adjusted basis for the full year, excluding the impact from divestitures, revenue was a record $3.77 billion, up 3%. Foreign exchange was neutral to revenue. Total segment profit increased 12% to a record $610 million, and total segment margin expanded 130 basis points to a record 16.2%. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations rose 18% to a record $11.19 for the full year.

"Weather was a headwind to growth in the last three quarters of 2019, but the company posted records for adjusted revenue, margin and profit for the year and had strong cash generation," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "In 2019, we completed the divestiture of non-core Refrigeration businesses, operationally recovered from the tornado, and resumed capturing share in the market. We introduced new products in 2019 and continued to make investments for future growth and profitability that position the company well for 2020 and beyond.

"In the fourth quarter, our Residential business reported new fourth-quarter records for revenue, profit and margin. Residential revenue was up 8% on growth in both replacement and new construction business. Residential profit rose 20%, and segment margin expanded 190 basis points to 19.6%.

"As presented in December, the Residential business in the fourth quarter had negative tornado impact of $23 million to revenue and $13 million to segment profit offset by $25 million of insurance recovery for a net benefit of $12 million to segment profit. For the year, Residential had negative tornado impact of $109 million to revenue and $59 million to segment profit offset by $99 million of insurance recovery for a net benefit of $40 million to segment profit.

"In the fourth quarter for Commercial, the business set new fourth-quarter records for revenue, profit and margin. Commercial revenue was up 12% on broad strength across the equipment and service businesses. Commercial profit rose 24%, and segment margin expanded 190 basis points to 19.0%. In Refrigeration, adjusted revenue was relatively flat at constant currency. North America was up low-single digits, and Europe was down low-single digits at constant currency. Refrigeration profit rose 5%, and segment margin expanded 70 basis points to 11.1%.

"Looking ahead for the company overall, we are well-positioned for a year of strong growth and profitability and reiterate guidance for 2020. With a strong balance sheet and cash generation, the company continues to invest in the business to drive performance, grow the dividend with earnings, and repurchase stock, with $400 million planned for 2020."

LENNOX INTERNATIONAL INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

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. During the first quarter of 2019, the Company completed the sale of its Kysor Warren business. In the first quarter of 2018, the Company announced the planned sales of its businesses in Australia, Asia, and South America. The sale of the Company's business in Australia and Asia and the related property was completed in the second quarter of 2018 and sale of the Company's business in South America was completed in the third quarter of 2018. The results from operations for these businesses have been shown in the tables below as "Non-core business results". The prior period results have been updated to provide period-over-period comparability.
