DALLAS, Feb. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox International Inc. (NYSE: LII) today reported fourth quarter and full year 2014 results. Financial results in prior periods have been revised to reflect sold businesses in discontinued operations.

For the fourth quarter, revenue was $813 million, up 8% from the prior-year quarter. At constant currency, revenue was up 10%. Total segment profit margin was a fourth-quarter record 9.4%, up 120 basis points from the prior-year quarter. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations on an adjusted basis was a fourth-quarter record $1.02, up 32% from $0.77 in the prior-year quarter. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was a fourth-quarter record $1.00, up 47% from $0.68 in the prior-year quarter.

For the full year, revenue was $3.4 billion, up 5% from the prior year. At constant currency, revenue was up 6%. Total segment profit margin was a record 10.1%, up 70 basis points from the prior year. Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations on an adjusted basis was a record $4.38, up 18% from $3.70 in the prior year. On a GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations was a record $4.28, up 21% from $3.55 in the prior year. 

"2014 was a year of strong growth and record profitability for Lennox International, led by 10% revenue growth at constant currency and 31% profit growth in our Residential business," said Chairman and CEO Todd Bluedorn. "In the fourth quarter, the company's momentum continued, with revenue up 10% at constant currency and total segment profit up 24%. Growth in the quarter continued to be led by Residential, with revenue up 14% at constant currency and profit up 57% from the prior-year quarter. In Commercial, revenue rose 8% at constant currency. Commercial profit was essentially flat with the prior-year quarter on headwinds from customer mix, foreign exchange, and investments related to our entrance in the VRF market. In Refrigeration, revenue was up 8% at constant currency. As expected, Refrigeration profit was down from the prior-year quarter by 45% due to the repeal of the carbon tax in Australia, North America product mix, and a negative impact from foreign exchange. We continue to expect Refrigeration revenue, margin and profit to be up in 2015 on continued growth in North America and improvement in Australia in the second half of the year. For the company overall in 2015, we expect another strong year of growth and record profitability, with strong cash generation for investments to drive growth as well as to return cash to shareholders."

FOURTH QUARTER 2014 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue: Revenue for the fourth quarter was $813 million, up 8% from the prior-year quarter. At constant currency, revenue was up 10%. Volume and price/mix were up from the fourth quarter a year ago.

Gross Profit: Gross profit in the fourth quarter was $225 million, up 9% from $208 million in the prior-year quarter. Gross margin was 27.7%, flat with the fourth quarter a year ago. Gross profit was positively impacted by higher volume, lower material costs, and favorable warranty expense, with partial offsets from unfavorable foreign exchange, lower mix, the repeal of the carbon tax in Australia, and investments in distribution expansion.   

Income from Continuing Operations: For the fourth quarter, adjusted income from continuing operations was $47 million, or $1.02 diluted earnings per share, compared to $38 million, or $0.77 diluted earnings per share, in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2014 excludes net after-tax charges of $0.8 million, which are derived from a $0.4 million charge related to restructuring activities, $0.3 million for the net change in unrealized losses on unsettled future contracts, and $0.1 million in charges, net, for other items.

Income from Continuing Operations: Adjusted income from continuing operations for 2014 was $213 million, or $4.38 diluted earnings per share, compared to $187 million, or $3.70 diluted earnings per share, in the prior year.

Free Cash Flow and Total Debt: Cash from operations for the fourth quarter was $161 million, compared to $145 million in the prior-year quarter. Capital expenditures were approximately $28 million in the fourth quarter compared to $37 million in the prior-year quarter. Including $1 million in proceeds from the disposal of property, plant and equipment (PP&E), free cash flow was $134 million, compared to $110 million in the prior-year quarter. As previously announced for the fourth quarter, the company strategically built $77 million of inventory to support customers in the minimum-efficiency regulatory transition taking effect at the start of 2015 for certain products.

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. 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.
