Organizational and reporting change

Effective January 1, 2023, the Company changed its organizational structure to manage and report the Latin America architectural paint business within the Consumer Brands Group to more closely align demand and service model trends with its current business strategy. The Latin America business was formerly part of The Americas Group, which has become the Paint Stores Group concurrent with this change. The Company will report segment results for the newly realigned Paint Stores Group and Consumer Brands Group, for both current and prior periods presented, beginning with the first quarter of 2023.

CEO remarks

“We delivered strong results in the first quarter, with higher than expected consolidated net sales, sequential and year-over-year expansion in gross margin, and double-digit percentage growth in diluted net income per share and EBITDA,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, John G. Morikis. “Segment margin expanded sequentially and year-over-year in all three of our reportable segments. We also continued to invest in growth initiatives across the business during the quarter while returning cash to our shareholders through an increase in our quarterly dividend and an investment of $301.7 million to repurchase 1.3 million shares.

“In the Paint Stores Group, sales in all end markets were up double-digit percentages, driven by strong volume and led by protective & marine, property maintenance, commercial and residential repaint.  In the Consumer Brands Group, North America DIY sales remained soft, while our Pros Who Paint business was up by a double-digit percentage. Sales were also up by a double-digit percentage in Latin America. Demand remained soft in Europe and China. We’re pleased with this Group’s progress on the previously described portfolio realignment.  In April, we completed the divestiture of a non-core aerosol business and finalized an agreement to divest our China architectural business.  In the Performance Coatings Group, sales were up in all regions except Asia Pacific. Growth was strongest in Automotive Refinish, which was up by a mid-teens percentage, followed by low-single digit increases in General Industrial and Coil Coatings. As expected, Packaging was down, impacted by very difficult comparisons, as was Industrial Wood, given weakness in residential end markets.”
