TAYLOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of branded home improvement and building products, reported strong net sales and operating profit growth in the second quarter of 2016, recording its highest second quarter operating margin since 2002.

“We continued our great start to 2016 with solid execution in the second quarter,” said Masco’s President and CEO, Keith Allman. “Our Plumbing segment in particular had an exceptional second quarter, with strong top- and bottom-line performance both in North America and internationally, and our Cabinetry segment continued to exceed expectations as it executed against its strategic plan to optimize sales mix and increase profitability. Additionally, we continued our disciplined capital allocation by reducing debt by $400 million, as planned, and returning nearly $120 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases during the quarter.”

2016 Second Quarter Commentary

  • On a reported basis, compared to second quarter 2015:
    • Net sales from continuing operations increased 4 percent to $2.0 billion
    • In local currency, North American sales increased 3 percent and international sales increased 9 percent
    • Gross margins improved to 35.0 percent from 33.0 percent
    • Operating margins improved to 16.7 percent from 14.5 percent
    • Income from continuing operations was $0.45 per common share, which included the $40 million debt extinguishment cost incurred during the quarter, compared to $0.31 per common share
  • Compared to second quarter 2015, results for key financial measures, as adjusted for certain items (see Exhibit A) and with a normalized tax rate of 36 percent, were as follows:
    • Gross margins improved to 35.2 percent compared to 33.0 percent
    • Operating margins improved to 17.1 percent compared to 14.5 percent
    • Income from continuing operations was $0.46 per common share compared to $0.38 per common share
  • Liquidity at the end of the second quarter was approximately $1.1 billion
  • 2.8 million shares were repurchased in the second quarter

2016 Second Quarter Operating Segment Highlights

  • Plumbing Products’ net sales increased 9 percent (10 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation), driven by growth in the retail and wholesale channels
  • Decorative Architectural Products’ net sales matched last year, with growth from paints and other coating products and builders’ hardware offset by the timing and amount of promotions
  • Cabinetry Products’ net sales decreased 3 percent due to the exit of lower margin business in the builder channel, which was partially offset by growth and improved mix in the retail channel
  • Windows and Other Specialty Products’ net sales increased 3 percent (4 percent excluding the impact of foreign currency translation), led by our North American windows business

Outlook

“The fundamental demand drivers of our end markets remain robust,” said Allman. “Combined with these underlying fundamentals, our strong performance this quarter is evidence that we continue to successfully execute against our long-term growth strategies by leveraging our brand portfolio, our industry-leading positions and our Masco Operating System. Reflecting confidence in Masco’s future outlook, our Board of Directors intends to increase our annual dividend by $0.02 per share to $0.40 per share, beginning with the quarterly dividend to be paid in the fourth quarter of 2016.”
