AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 5, 2020 – Resideo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: REZI), a leading global provider of home comfort and security solutions, today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter ended Sept. 26, 2020.
Third Quarter 2020 Performance
Consolidated revenue of $1.4 billion in the third quarter 2020 increased 11% compared with the prior year of $1.2 billion. ADI Global Distribution segment revenue was $790 million, an increase of 11% compared with revenue of $714 million in the prior year primarily due to increased volume from project business. Products & Solutions segment revenue was $572 million, an increase of 12% compared with revenue of $512 million in the prior year due to positive demand trends across each of Products & Solutions' primary end markets.
Gross profit margin for the third quarter 2020 was 27.2%, compared to 25.2% in the prior year. The increase was attributed to higher revenue and sourcing and productivity cost savings initiatives, partially offset by increased factory costs related to COVID-19 safety measures and unfavorable sales mix in both segments.
Resideo's operating profit of $131 million in the third quarter 2020 compared to a prior year operating profit of $59 million. The operating profit reflects the improved gross profit and reduced SG&A expenses due to ongoing transformation and cost reduction programs. Net income for the third quarter 2020 was $75 million, or $0.60 per diluted common share, compared with $8 million, or $0.06 per diluted common share, in the prior year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2020 was $188 million, representing an increase of 65% compared with $114 million in the prior year. ADI Global Distribution segment Adjusted EBITDA increased from $48 million in the prior year to $52 million in the third

quarter 2020, primarily due to higher revenue and cost savings actions, partially offset by lower gross margin and increased investment activity. Products & Solutions segment Adjusted EBITDA increased from $66 million in the prior year to $136 million in the third quarter 2020. The increase was the result of higher revenue, improved gross margin, transformation savings and COVID-19 related cost management actions.
Consolidated revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 was $3.6 billion, down 3% compared with consolidated revenue for the prior year of $3.7 billion. ADI Global Distribution segment revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 was $2.1 billion, an increase of 2% compared to the prior year. Products & Solutions segment revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 was $1.4 billion, a decrease of 10% compared with $1.6 billion for the prior year.
Gross profit margin for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 was 24.9%, compared to 26.2% for the prior year. The decline in gross profit margin was the result of impacts from lower revenue in the Products & Solutions segment, unfavorable product mix across both segments and increased factory costs related to COVID-19 safety measures. These factors were partially offset by positive impacts from our ongoing transformation and cost savings programs and sourcing and productivity improvements.
Operating profit of $159 million for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 decreased 15% compared to operating profit of $186 million for the prior year. For the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020, the Company reported a net loss of $22 million, or negative $0.18 per diluted common share.
Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $350 million for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 declined $13 million, or 4%, as compared to $363 million for the prior year. ADI Global Distribution segment Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 of $126 million, represented an 11% decline from $141 million for the prior year. ADI Global Distribution segment Adjusted EBITDA was negatively impacted by lower volumes related to COVID-19 and unfavorable sales mix, partially offset by cost reduction actions and transformation programs. Products & Solutions segment Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended Sept. 26, 2020 of $224 million represented a 1% increase from $222 million for the prior year. Within the Products & Solutions segment, cost savings from transformation programs and various cost reduction initiatives offset lower revenue, unfavorable sales mix and increased factory operating costs attributable to COVID-19 employee safety measures.
Cash Flow and Liquidity
The Company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $21 million for the third quarter 2020, an increase of $54 million from the prior year. This improvement was primarily due to improved net income and an increase in accrued liabilities. At Sept. 26, 2020, Resideo had cash and cash equivalents of $260 million, total outstanding debt of $1.3 billion, and $200 million undrawn on a $350 million revolving credit facility.
On Oct. 30, 2020, the Company paid the previously deferred April 30, 2020, $35 million Honeywell Reimbursement Agreement payment and made the regularly scheduled Reimbursement Agreement payment of $35 million.
The Company expects fourth quarter 2020 revenue to be in the range of $1.36 billion to $1.41 billion, operating profit in the range of $130 million to $140 million and Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $180 million to $190 million.
"In the third quarter we delivered meaningful sequential and year-over-year revenue and profitability expansion across the business," commented Jay Geldmacher, Resideo's President and CEO. "Demand strengthened as the quarter progressed at ADI and across our Products & Solutions offerings. These results highlight Resideo's strong position in the residential solutions market supported by the breadth of our product portfolio and distribution reach, unmatched relationships within the professional channel and leading positions in many of the product categories we serve.
"Our revenue performance and the progress with our ongoing transformation and cost reduction initiatives enabled us to strengthen our liquidity position, and in late October we made all outstanding Reimbursement Agreement payments to Honeywell. While we are closely monitoring our operations and supply chain for impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are encouraged by the strong demand trends we are seeing across our end markets as we close out 2020."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes Adjusted EBITDA which is not compliant with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures are adjusted for certain items as reflected in Table 5 above and may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies in our industry, as other companies may define such measures differently. Management believes that, when considered together with reported amounts, this measure is useful to investors and management in understanding our ongoing operations and in analysis of ongoing operating trends and provide useful additional information relating to our operations and financial condition. This metric should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements for, the most comparable GAAP measure. Refer to Table 5 above in this release for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a relevant indicator of operating performance. It should be read in connection with our financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP.
A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts due to the impact and timing on future operating results arising from items excluded from these measures, particularly environmental expense, Honeywell reimbursement agreement expense, stock compensation expense, restructuring expense and other non-operating expense (income).
Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) was previously presented as Adjusted EBITDA excluding Honeywell reimbursement agreement payments (Non-GAAP). The change in presentation was made beginning with our first quarter 2020 results to more accurately reflect the underlying performance indicators of the business in Adjusted EBITDA. The Honeywell reimbursement agreement cash payments are a liquidity measure and will be included within the cash flow and liquidity discussions. Management believes that this presentation more clearly presents underlying operations as the amounts related to the Honeywell reimbursement agreement are recorded in net income are based on when such amounts become probable and reasonably estimable.
