JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. Updates Full Year 2021 Outlook and Announces Date of Earnings Release and Conference Call for Third Quarter Results

October 4, 2021 GMT

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- JELD-WEN Holding, Inc. (NYSE:JELD) today reported that the company updated its outlook for full year 2021 revenue and adjusted EBITDA, and announced the date for its third quarter earnings release.

Updates to Full Year Outlook

“Demand remains strong in all of our end markets, demonstrated by year-over-year growth in orders and backlog in each segment and a record book-to-bill ratio in North America for the third quarter,” said Gary S. Michel, president and chief executive officer. “Our ability to meet this high level of demand is affected by labor constraints, supply chain disruptions, and operating limitations in certain markets due to mandated COVID-19 lockdowns and adverse weather events. I’m pleased with how our team has applied our business operating system, the JELD-WEN Excellence Model (JEM), to overcome these external headwinds and produce tangible customer benefits and maintain industry-leading service levels. Our commercial excellence initiatives are also demonstrating results, as price realization remains strong and additional pricing actions are now in place to continue to offset accelerating cost inflation.”

The company now expects full year 2021 revenue growth in the range of 10% to 12% compared to the previous range of 12% to 14% due to lower volume from the impact of labor constraints, supply chain disruptions and mandated operating limitations. Additionally, the company now expects full year 2021 adjusted EBITDA in the range of $470 million to $490 million, compared to the previous range of $510 million to $535 million due to reduced expectations for revenue and labor productivity as well as higher than anticipated inflation. The company expects the majority of the change in the full year 2021 outlook to be realized in the third quarter and expects fourth quarter year-over-year margin expansion.

Michel continued, “We believe that JELD-WEN’s multi-faceted growth platform and rigorous deployment of JEM will continue to drive consistent growth and performance. We remain steadfastly committed to delivering our long-term financial targets highlighted in our May 2021 Investor Day, which we expect to be achieved through growth from innovation and commercial excellence initiatives, as well as favorable end market demand.”

Third Quarter Earnings Release and Conference Call

The company also announced that it will release third quarter 2021 results before the market opens on Monday, Nov. 1, 2021. The company will hold a conference call to discuss the results at 8 a.m. EDT that same day.

Forward-looking statements are generally identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “might”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “seek”, or “should”, or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or comparable terminology. Where, in any forward-looking statement, we express an expectation or belief as to future results or events, such expectation or belief is based on the current plans, expectations, assumptions, estimates, and projections of our management. Although we believe that these statements are based on reasonable expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections, they are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, many of which are beyond our control that could cause actual outcomes and results to be materially different from those indicated in such statements.

The assumptions underlying the guidance provided for 2021 include revenue growth from the acceleration in housing demand in our primary markets; improved product mix; increased pricing; a positive impact from foreign exchange; and margin expansion from volume, pricing, and productivity, partially offset by higher expenses related to material and freight inflation and SG&A. Additionally, the outlook does not include the impact of potential acquisitions or divestitures and assumes no new COVID-19 lockdowns or restrictions, which could unfavorably impact our operations, labor availability, and supply chain continuity.

Risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements include risks associated with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the company and our employees, customers, and suppliers, and other factors, including the factors discussed in our Annual Reports on Form 10-K and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The forward-looking statements included in this release are made as of the date hereof, and except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify any forward-looking statements to reflect events, new information or circumstances occurring after the date of this release.
