Compass Diversified Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Generates Cash Flow Available for Distribution and Reinvestment of $18.4 Million

Aug 09, 2011, 07:30 ET from Compass Diversified Holdings

WESTPORT, Conn., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Compass Diversified Holdings (NYSE: CODI) ("CODI" or the "Company"), an owner of leading middle market businesses, announced today its consolidated operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter 2011 Highlights

  • Generated Cash Flow Available for Distribution and Reinvestment ("CAD" or "Cash Flow") of $18.4 million for the second quarter of 2011;
  • Reported net income of $8.3 million for the second quarter of 2011; and
  • Paid a second quarter 2011 cash distribution of $0.36 per share in July 2011, bringing cumulative distributions paid to $6.7152 per share since CODI's IPO in May of 2006.

CODI reported Cash Flow (see note regarding use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures below) of $18.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $14.8 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year. CODI's weighted average number of shares outstanding for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010 was approximately 46.7 million and 41.0 million, respectively.

The improvement in Cash Flow for the second quarter 2011 as compared to the year-earlier period was largely due to the inclusion of results from ERGObaby, a new CODI platform business acquired on September 16, 2010 and from higher revenue levels at a number of our subsidiaries.

CODI's Cash Flow is calculated after taking into account all interest expense, cash taxes paid and maintenance capital expenditures, and includes the operating results of each subsidiary for the periods during which CODI owned them. However, Cash Flow excludes the gains from sales of businesses, which have totaled over $109 million since 2007.

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $8.3 million, as compared to a net loss of $0.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. During the quarter ended June 30, 2011, CODI recorded higher operating income as well as lower income tax expense due to the timing of an effective rate adjustment for Staffmark that was recorded in the year-earlier period.

As of June 30, 2011, CODI had $9.2 million in cash and cash equivalents on hand, $73.0 million outstanding on its term loan facility and $15.0 million outstanding under its $340 million revolving credit facility. The Company has no significant debt maturities until late 2012 and had borrowing availability of approximately $234 million at June 30, 2011 under its revolving credit facility.

On July 6, 2011, CODI's Board of Directors declared a second quarter distribution of $0.36 per share. The distribution was paid on July 28, 2011 to all holders of record as of July 21, 2011.

Commenting on the quarter, Alan Offenberg, CEO of Compass Diversified Holdings, said, "During the second quarter, we posted strong financial results, with an increase in Cash Flow of 24.3% compared to the year-earlier period.  Our companies continue to focus on gaining market share in their respective industries, capitalizing on their relative operating and financial strength.  In particular, we are pleased with the progress that our management team is making at our newest company, ERGObaby, which is reflected both quantitatively in the subsidiary's strong operating results and qualitatively through the company's product development and distribution channel expansion efforts.  For the second quarter, we paid a distribution of $0.36 per share, and have now paid out $6.72 to our shareholders since our 2006 IPO. With a flexible balance sheet, we remain well positioned to provide attractive distributions to our owners and to capitalize on accretive acquisition opportunities."

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

CAD, or Cash Flow, is a non-GAAP measure used by the Company to assess its performance, as well as its ability to sustain and increase quarterly distributions. A number of CODI's businesses have seasonal earnings patterns, with the first quarter typically being the slowest of the year. Accordingly, the Company believes that the most appropriate measure of its performance is over a trailing or expected 12-month period. We have reconciled CAD, or Cash Flow, to Net Income and Cash Flow Provided by Operating Activities on the Attached Schedules. We consider Net Income and Cash Flow Provided by Operating Activities to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to CAD, or Cash Flow.
