DALLAS, Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII), a global leader in energy-efficient climate-control solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2021. All comparisons are to the prior-year period.

Lennox International reported record third-quarter revenue of $1.06 billion, up slightly from the prior-year quarter. Foreign exchange was neutral. GAAP operating income was $163 million, down 3%. GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations was $3.41 compared to $3.42 in the prior-year quarter.

Total segment profit was $165 million, down 7%, and total segment margin was 15.5%, down 120 basis points. Adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations was $3.40, down 4%.

"Demand remained strong across all our end markets in the third quarter, but global supply chain and Covid-19 disruptions to production and our labor force materially impacted financial performance," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "The company had negative impact of approximately $75 million to revenue and $25 million to operating profit from these constraints in the third quarter, and we currently expect a similar level in the fourth quarter.

"For our Residential business in the third quarter, revenue was down 2%. Residential profit was down 6%, and segment margin was down 90 basis points to 20.3%. Our Commercial business was hit especially hard by Covid-19 in its Arkansas factory in the quarter, on top of supply chain disruptions. Segment margin was down 800 basis points to 10.7%. Commercial profit declined 42% on 2% revenue growth. In Refrigeration, revenue was up 10%, led by more than 20% growth in North America. Europe revenue was down. Refrigeration profit rose 12% as segment margin expanded 20 basis points to 10.6%.  

"Looking ahead for the company overall, demand remains strong. But global supply chain bottlenecks and shortages are not expected to be resolved soon, and Covid-19 adds more complexity to labor and production disruptions. We are narrowing our 2021 guidance and now expect revenue growth of 13-15% and adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $12.10-$12.30 for the full year."

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue: Revenue was a third-quarter record $1.06 billion, up slightly. Volume was down, and price was up. Mix and foreign exchange were neutral to revenue.

Gross Profit: Gross profit was $295 million, down 9%. Gross margin was 27.9%, down 270 basis points. Gross profit was negatively impacted by lower volume due to global supply chain and Covid-19 disruptions to production, factory inefficiencies, unfavorable mix, and higher material, freight, distribution, tariffs, warranty and other product costs. Favorable price was a partial offset.

Income from Continuing Operations: On a GAAP basis, income from continuing operations for the third quarter was $126.3 million, or $3.41 per share, compared to $131.7 million, or $3.42 per share, in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted income from continuing operations in the third quarter was $125.8 million, or $3.40 per share, compared to $136.1 million, or $3.53 per share, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2021 excludes a net after-tax benefit of $0.5 million, consisting of: a benefit of $2.7 million for excess tax benefits from share-based compensation, a net charge of $2.4 million for items excluded from segment profit, and a net benefit of $0.2 million for other items.

Cash from Operations, Free Cash Flow and Total Debt: Net cash from operations in the third quarter was $222 million compared to $440 million in the prior-year quarter. Capital expenditures were $23 million in the third quarter compared to approximately $12 million in the prior-year quarter. Free cash flow was $199 million compared to $428 million in the third quarter a year ago. Total debt at the end of the third quarter was $1.28 billion. Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $44 million at the end of the quarter. The company paid $34 million in dividends in the third quarter and repurchased $200 million of stock.

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.
