Gibraltar Announces 30% Increase In Third Quarter Revenue

Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCK), a leading manufacturer and distributor of products for building and industrial markets, today reported its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Management Comments

“Gibraltar achieved another quarter of excellent top- and bottom-line results,” said Gibraltar Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Lipke. “We grew sales 30%, including double-digit organic growth as well as a 17% increase from acquisitions. Our adjusted gross margin improved by 330 basis points, and we delivered 550% growth in adjusted income from continuing operations.”

“Gibraltar’s impressive performance reflects the success of our three-point growth strategy,” said Lipke. “This strategy includes focusing on operational excellence across the company, increasing our market share, and capitalizing on the strength of our balance sheet to make accretive acquisitions. As a result, we have been able to report consistently solid financial results in a challenging end-market environment.”

“Our long-term goal is to position Gibraltar as the low-cost global supplier,” said Gibraltar President and Chief Operating Officer Henning Kornbrekke. “We have made great strides toward that goal during the past few years through lean initiatives that have lowered our cost structure. At the same time, we have significantly reduced working capital and more effectively managed commodity costs. Our third-quarter financial performance is the result of these efforts, and we continued to make progress in each of these areas during the quarter.”

“In addition, we are aggressively executing on our organic growth strategy, which centers on launching new products, expanding our geographic market coverage, and leveraging our competitive strengths to penetrate new end markets adjacent to our core business,” said Kornbrekke. “As a result, we are continuing to shift Gibraltar’s overall business mix away from the residential building market and toward industrial construction and infrastructure, and our recent acquisitions have accelerated our progress in that direction.”
