American Woodmark Corporation Announces Third Quarter Results PR Newswire WINCHESTER, Va., Feb. 19, 2013 WINCHESTER, Va., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --American Woodmark Corporation (NASDAQ: AMWD) today announced results for the third quarter ended January 31, 2013, of its fiscal year that ends on April 30, 2013. Net sales rose by 26% compared with the third quarter of the prior fiscal year to $151.3 million. Net sales rose by 21% to $459.4 million during the nine-month period ended January 31, 2013, compared with the comparable period of the prior fiscal year. The Company experienced sales gains in each of its sales channels during the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, led by new construction sales growth of more than 50%. The Company generated net income excluding restructuring charges of $2.1 million, or $0.14per diluted share during the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, compared with a net loss of ($2.8million) or ($0.20) per diluted share in the third quarter of its prior fiscal year. The Company generated net income excluding restructuring charges of $5.2 million or $0.35 per diluted share in the nine-month period ended January 31, 2013, compared with a net loss of ($8.5 million) or ($0.59) per diluted share in the comparable period of the prior fiscal year. Results in fiscal year 2013 included net-of-tax restructuring costs of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per diluted share in the third quarter, and $0.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in the first nine months, related to the permanent closure of two manufacturing plants in April 2012 and May 2012. Net income inclusive of these charges for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal year 2013 was $2.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, and $4.6million, or $0.31 per diluted share, respectively. Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 15.5% of net sales, compared with 12.2% of net sales in the prior year's third quarter. Gross profit was 15.3% of net sales during the first nine months of fiscal year 2013, compared with 12.9% of net sales during the comparable period of the prior fiscal year. Gross profit was favorably impacted by reductions in fixed overhead costs associated with the plant closures, by the beneficial impact of higher sales volume and by other cost savings realized from the Company's restructuring. This favorability was partially offset by the lingering impact of operational inefficiencies connected with the transition of production related to the plant closures during a period of rising sales, as well as rising materials costs. Selling, general and administrative costs were 13.1% of net sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, improved from 16.6% of net sales in the prior year's third quarter. Selling, general and administrative costs improved to 13.4% of net sales in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013, down from 16.6% of net sales in the comparable period of the prior fiscal year. The improvement in the Company's operating expense ratio was driven by increased sales levels that enabled favorable leverage, combined with cost savings from modifications to the Company's retirement programs. The Company generated free cash flow (defined as cash provided by operating activities net of cash used for investing activities) of $1.3 million during the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, compared with $2.6 million in the prior year's third quarter. The reduction in the Company's free cash flow wasdriven by the timing of the Company's collections from its customers and by contributions made tothe Company's pension plan, which more than offset the impact of higher net income.
