Carpet maker Mohawk generates strong cash flow during Q3

Nov '08
Mohawk Industries Inc announced 2008 third quarter sales of $1,763 million, a decrease of 9% from 2007. The company generated cash flow from operations of $185 million, paid down debt of $128 million and has over $800 million available under current credit facilities. As a result of Mohawk's declining stock price and deteriorating industry conditions, accounting rules required non-cash charges for a preliminary goodwill and other intangibles impairment of $1,216 million net of tax and for a deferred tax asset impairment of $253 million.

While our goodwill and other intangibles impairment analysis is not yet complete, we believe the preliminary amount is a reasonable estimate and we will adjust the charge if required. These impairment charges do not require any cash payments or impact our operations, liquidity or debt covenants.

Including the non-cash write offs during the quarter, the company reported a net loss of $1,394 million or $20.37 per share. Excluding the non-cash write off, non-GAAP net earnings were $76 million or $1.10 per share. In the third quarter of 2007, net earnings were $122 million or $1.78 per share.

Net sales for the first nine months of 2008 were $5,341 million representing an 8% decrease from 2007. For the first nine months of 2008, the loss was $1,239 million or $18.12 per share including a non-cash write off for a preliminary goodwill and other intangibles impairment of $1,216 million net of tax and for a deferred tax asset impairment of $253 million. Excluding the non-cash write off's, non-GAAP net earnings were $230 million or $3.35 per share in the first nine months of 2008.

In commenting on the third quarter results, Jeffrey S. Lorberbaum, Chairman and CEO stated, "We generated strong cash flow from operations of $185 million during the period while our earnings were under pressure from falling demand and higher costs. All of our businesses are focused on reducing overhead costs, managing working capital and enhancing sales and margins. The U.S. economy is declining with consumers reducing discretionary expenditures. Residential home sales and remodeling are at low levels and commercial projects are being impacted by tightening credit and softening business conditions. The European economy has become significantly weaker and affected both our flooring and non-flooring products. Government intervention should help stabilize the banking system and improve availability of credit. We are hopeful that the declining energy and commodity prices will help strengthen consumer confidence and lead to an improvement in the flooring market next year.

The Mohawk segment was impacted most by the down turn. Sales declined by 11% with both costs and revenues under pressure. Almost every channel and product category has slowed during the quarter. The price increases we announced in the summer should be fully implemented by year end. During the quarter raw materials escalated more than we anticipated. Additional price increases were initiated in our ceramic, laminate, and vinyl products during the period. Our SG&A has been reduced from the prior year and will decline further in the future from additional actions. To right size the business, we announced closing two staple yarn plants and several regional distribution centers in the fourth quarter. This restructuring will benefit us with lower overhead and more efficient operations going forward. We are carefully rationalizing all our facilities to match the needs for both our near-term and long-term environment.
