2021 Second Quarter Financial Highlights

•Consolidated net sales of $410.3 million increased 25.8% from $326.1 million.
◦North America net sales of $350.6 million increased 22.2% from $286.8 million due primarily to product price increases that took effect in April and June of 2021, in an effort to offset rising material costs, along with marginally higher sales volumes. In addition, the majority of the Company's distribution channels continued to benefit from increased U.S. housing starts and repair and remodel activity. Canada's net sales also increased primarily due to higher sales volumes and were positively impacted by approximately $2.6 million in foreign currency translation.
◦Europe net sales of $56.4 million increased 51.0% from $37.4 million, primarily due to higher sales volumes and were positively affected by approximately $5.3 million in foreign currency translation related to Europe's currencies strengthening against the United States dollar.

•Consolidated gross profit of $196.4 million increased 31.1% from $149.8 million. Gross margin increased to 47.9% from 45.9%.
◦North America gross margin increased to 49.9% from 47.4%, primarily due to the aforementioned product price increases.
◦Europe gross margin increased to 36.0% from 35.1%, primarily due to lower labor, factory, warehouse and shipping costs, partly offset by higher material costs, each as a percentage of net sales.

•Consolidated income from operations of $101.7 million increased 40.9% from $72.2 million. The increase was primarily due to the increase in consolidated gross profit, partly offset by higher operating expenses, as the Company transitions to a more normalized operating environment following 2020. Consolidated operating margin increased to 24.8% from 22.1%.
◦North America income from operations of $95.1 million increased from $72.2 million, primarily due to the increase in gross profit, partly offset by higher operating expenses due to higher personnel costs and professional fees.
◦Europe income from operations of $5.9 million increased from $2.7 million, primarily due to the increase in sales volumes and gross profit, partly offset by higher operating expenses due to higher personnel costs.

•The Company's effective income tax rate increased to 26.9% from 25.8%.


•Net income was $72.5 million, or $1.66 per diluted share of the Company's common stock, compared to net income of $53.5 million, or $1.22 per diluted share.

•Cash flow provided by operating activities increased approximately $38.9 million to $81.6 million from $42.8 million.

•Cash flow used in investing activities increased approximately $12.8 million to $26.2 million from $13.4 million. Capital expenditures were approximately $19.3 million compared to $14.1 million and the Company invested $6.8 million in a venture capital fund.

Management Commentary

'We are pleased with our second quarter performance,' commented Karen Colonias, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. 'We experienced strong business momentum, generating net sales of $410.3 million, which grew 18.0% over the prior quarter and 25.8% over the prior year comparable period. Sales growth was primarily driven by the implementation of two product price increases during the quarter to offset rising material costs along with marginal increases in sales volume. The recent price increases we implemented drove significantly higher gross margins for the second quarter which increased to 47.9% from 46.7% in the prior quarter and 45.9% in the prior year period. As a result, our income from operations improved to $101.7 million and led to strong earnings per diluted share of $1.66.'

Ms. Colonias continued, 'Throughout the quarter, we were very pleased to be able to continue meeting the needs of our customers by providing them with our trusted product solutions, typically within 48 hours or less. This is despite the current environment marked by the increasing prevalence of global supply chain constraints, limited steel availability and a tight labor market. We also remained focused on executing our key growth initiatives which include: expansion into the OEM, repair & remodel / do-it-yourself ('R&R/DIY'), mass timber, concrete and structural steel markets.'

Ms. Colonias concluded, 'Importantly, we continue to believe in our ability to achieve our Five-year Company Ambitions despite margin compression we are expecting in 2022, which we expect will be directly correlated with rising raw material costs. Looking ahead to the second half of this year, we will continue to manage the key areas of our business we can control and look forward to continuing to provide our customers with Simpson's industry-leading solutions, supported by our long-standing relationships, technical and field support, strong inventory position and consistent product availability. I would like to sincerely thank our employees for their commitment to Simpson. We commend you for your dedication to safety, and for working hard every day to help achieve our mission of providing solutions to help people design and build safer, stronger structures.'

Corporate Developments

•On July 12, 2021, the Company entered into a fourth amendment to the Credit Agreement dated as of July 27, 2012, which, amongst other things, extended the term of the credit agreement from July 23, 2022 to July 12, 2026 and modified certain covenants to provide the Company additional flexibility.
