Patrick Industries, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

ELKHART, Ind., May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Patrick Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:
PATK), a major manufacturer and distributor of building and component products
for the recreational vehicle (“RV”), manufactured housing (“MH”) and industrial
markets, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March
30, 2014.

First Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Net sales for the first quarter of 2014 increased $28.0 million or 19.7%, to
$170.1 million from $142.1 million in the same quarter of 2013. The increase was
primarily attributable to a 21% increase in the Company’s revenue from the RV
industry, which represented approximately 76% of the Company’s first quarter
2014 sales. Sales to the MH industry increased 12%, while sales to the
industrial markets increased 24%. The Company estimates that wholesale unit
shipments to the RV industry increased approximately 11% in the first quarter of
2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013. Additionally, the Company estimates
that wholesale unit shipments to the MH industry, which represented
approximately 13% of first quarter 2014 sales, rose approximately 4% from the
first quarter of 2013. The industrial market sector, which is primarily tied to
the residential housing and commercial and retail fixtures markets, accounted
for 11% of the Company’s first quarter 2014 sales, and reflected an approximate
2% decrease in new housing starts in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the
prior year. The Company estimates that approximately 57% of its industrial
market sales are linked to the residential housing sector and its sales to the
industrial markets generally lag new housing starts by approximately six to nine

Excluding the revenue contributions of acquisitions completed in 2013, the
Company estimates its organic growth in the first quarter of 2014 at
approximately 13%, or $17.5 million of its total revenue increase. The Company
estimates that this organic growth was comprised of growth resulting from market
share gains of approximately 3% and growth tied to overall industry improvement
of approximately 10%. The remaining $10.5 million of the revenue increase in the
first quarter of 2014 was attributable to the incremental contribution of the
2013 acquisitions (including related market share and industry growth),
resulting in incremental growth of approximately 7%.

The Company’s RV content per unit for the first quarter of 2014 increased
approximately 20% to an estimated $1,373 from $1,142 for the first quarter of
2013. The MH content per unit for the first quarter of 2014 increased
approximately 2% to an estimated $1,605 from $1,580 for the same period in 2013.

“We are pleased with our revenues and our operating income performance in the
first quarter of 2014. The severe winter weather we experienced in the Midwest
in early 2014 did cause some additional costs related to production, scheduling,
and delivery inefficiencies, but the impact was not significant to our overall
operating results in the first quarter. We did see a continuing seasonal sales
pickup each month consistent with our expectations and general positive industry
sentiment, and we continue to believe that all three of the primary markets we
serve are well positioned for further growth in 2014,” said Todd Cleveland,
President and Chief Executive Officer.

Patrick reported operating income of $11.8 million in the first quarter of 2014,
an increase of $1.4 million or 13% from the $10.4 million reported in the first
quarter of 2013. First quarter 2014 net income was $6.9 million or $0.64 per
diluted share compared to net income of $6.0 million or $0.55 per diluted share
in the first quarter of 2013.

On February 13, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized an increase in
the amount of the Company’s stock that may be acquired through the existing
stock repurchase program over the next 12 months to $20.0 million, including
approximately $3.9 million available under the previous authorization. There
were no stock repurchases made during the first quarter ended March 30, 2014. In
the second quarter of 2014 through April 18, 2014, the Company repurchased
16,900 shares at an average price of $40.01 per share for a total cost of
approximately $0.7 million. Since the inception of the stock repurchase program
in February 2013, the Company has repurchased in the aggregate 424,230 shares at
an average price of $15.92 per share for a total cost of approximately $6.8

“We continue to make progress in positioning our business to maximize the
benefits of our strategic initiatives and bring increasing value to our
customers,” said Mr. Cleveland. “We are excited about the opportunities that
exist in our markets and the positive outlook for the industries that we serve.
We look forward to building on our competitive strengths, applying our capital
allocation strategy, and achieving our goal of continually exceeding our
customers’ expectations.”
