Note: Current quarter performance relative to comparable third quarter in 2019

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Watts Water Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: WTS) today announced third quarter 2020 results.

Chief Executive Officer Robert J. Pagano Jr. commented, “It has been approximately nine months since the coronavirus pandemic began impacting our markets, customers, suppliers and employees. In that time, we have become more flexible as a business in addressing its impact. Internally, we remain diligent in ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees, especially as more people return to the office. Externally, we have maintained our customer focus to deliver products on time and with the quality that our customers expect. We believe the pandemic’s effect will continue as we conclude 2020 and move into 2021. I again would like to thank the entire Watts team for their exceptional efforts during these demanding times.”

Regarding third quarter results, Mr. Pagano noted, “We delivered a solid operating performance as the benefit of aggressive cost actions more than offset COVID-19 driven volume reductions and additional investments. We continued to drive more permanent cost reductions as we recorded restructuring and other charges related to previously announced and expanded programs. We have maintained investment and capital spending at levels necessary for successful new product launches, including enhancements to our production facilities to efficiently make those products. And, we generated incremental free cash flow that, along with an already strong balance sheet, provides flexibility and stability.”

Financial Highlights

  • Sales decreased 3% on a reported basis and 5% on an organic basis, as compared to the third quarter last year. Reported operating margin increased 10 basis points and adjusted operating margin increased 50 basis points. Reported and adjusted operating margin increased as cost reduction actions and productivity more than offset lower volume primarily resulting from the impact of COVID-19. GAAP operating margin was also negatively impacted by higher restructuring and other related costs, acquisition charges and a loss on disposal.

    From a regional perspective:

Americas

  • Sales decreased 3% on a reported basis and 4% on an organic basis, with declines in heating and hot water, plumbing and drains products. Operating margin increased 10 basis points and 30 basis points on a GAAP and adjusted basis, respectively, as benefits from cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives offset COVID-19 volume declines and incremental investments. GAAP operating margin also declined due to restructuring and other charges recorded in the third quarter of 2020.

Europe

  • Reported sales decreased 1%, including a positive impact of 5% from foreign exchange movements. Sales were down 6% organically, with declines in most regions and product lines resulting from COVID-19. Operating margin decreased 150 basis points on a GAAP basis and increased 10 basis points on an adjusted basis. GAAP operating margin was negatively impacted by higher restructuring charges year-over-year. Both measures were positively affected by cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives that more than offset volume reductions and incremental investments.

APMEA

  • Reported and organic sales decreased 4% and 22%, respectively, with sales generally down in most regions due to COVID-19. GAAP operating margin decreased 930 basis points and adjusted operating margin increased 640 basis points. GAAP and adjusted operating margin benefited from cost reduction actions and productivity initiatives, as well as higher affiliate volume, which were partially offset by lower third-party volume. GAAP operating margin was also impacted by restructuring charges, acquisition related costs and a loss on disposal recorded in the third quarter of 2020.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

  • For the first nine months of 2020, operating cash flow was $127 million, net capital expenditures were $32 million and free cash flow was $95 million. In the comparable period last year, operating cash flow was $95 million, net capital expenditures were approximately $19 million and free cash flow was approximately $76 million. The free cash flow increase was primarily driven by lower working capital including reductions in accounts receivable. We expect continued improvement in free cash flow through the fourth quarter of 2020, due to normal seasonality.
  • Year-to-date, we have repatriated approximately $56 million in cash, and used a majority of that cash to pay down debt.
  • We repurchased approximately 41,000 shares of Class A common stock at a cost of $3.7 million during the third quarter. For the first nine months of 2020, we repurchased approximately 295,000 shares at a cost of approximately $24.8 million, which more than offset dilution from our stock compensation programs.

For a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP items and a statement regarding the usefulness of these measures to investors and management in evaluating our operating performance, please see the tables attached to this press release.

Key Performance Indicators and Non-GAAP Measures

In this press release, we refer to non-GAAP financial measures (including adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, organic sales, free cash flow, cash conversion rate of free cash flow to net income and net debt to capitalization ratio) and provide a reconciliation of those non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding financial measures contained in our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that these financial measures enhance the overall understanding of our historical financial performance and give insight into our future prospects. Adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margins, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share eliminate certain expenses incurred in the periods presented that relate primarily to our global restructuring programs, footprint optimization costs, acquisition related costs, loss on disposal, other long-lived asset impairment charge and certain professional fees. Management then utilizes these adjusted financial measures to assess the run-rate of the Company’s operations against those of comparable periods. Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of sales growth excluding the impacts of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestitures from period-over-period comparisons. Management believes reporting organic sales growth provides useful information to investors, potential investors and others, and allows for a more complete understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. Free cash flow, cash conversion rate of free cash flow to net income, and the net debt to capitalization ratio, which are adjusted to exclude certain cash inflows and outlays, and include only certain balance sheet accounts from the comparable GAAP measures, are an indication of our performance in cash flow generation and also provide an indication of the Company's relative balance sheet leverage to other industrial manufacturing companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating our cash flow generation and our capitalization structure. In addition, free cash flow is used as a criterion to measure and pay certain compensation-based incentives. For these reasons, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures can be useful to investors, potential investors and others. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
