AUSTIN, Texas, May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Resideo Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: REZI), a leading global provider of home comfort and security solutions and distributor of commercial and residential security and audio-visual products, today announced financial and operating results for the first quarter ended April 3, 2021.
First Quarter 2021 Highlights
First Quarter 2021 Performance
Consolidated revenue of $1.4 billion in the first quarter 2021 increased 20% compared with $1.2 billion in the first quarter 2020. Products & Solutions revenue was $606 million, an increase of 28% compared with revenue of $475 million in the prior year comparable period due to strong demand across Products & Solutions' primary end markets and channels. ADI Global Distribution revenue was $813 million, an increase of 15% compared with revenue of $704 million in the prior year comparable period due to improved demand for products serving both commercial and residential markets and growth in e-commerce sales.
Gross profit margin for the first quarter 2021 was 25.9%, up 180 basis points compared to 24.1% in the first quarter 2020. Products & Solutions gross profit margin of 38.0% increased 410 basis points from 33.9% in the first quarter 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to higher sales volumes and engineering and supply chain productivity improvements, partially offset by higher freight and logistics costs. ADI Global Distribution gross profit margin was 17.2%, a decline of 70 basis points compared to the prior year comparable period gross profit margin of 17.9%. The decline was primarily a result of lower supplier rebates and unfavorable sales mix in the EMEA region, partially offset by higher product line margin in the North America region.
Resideo's operating profit of $130 million in the first quarter 2021 was up $96 million compared to first quarter 2020 operating profit of $34 million. Products & Solutions operating profit of $130 million in the first quarter 2021 increased from $58 million in the first quarter 2020. The increase was the result of higher volumes, improved gross profit margin and a reduction in overall operating expense. ADI Global Distribution operating profit increased to $59 million in the first quarter 2021 from $48 million in the first quarter 2020, primarily due to higher revenue. Total Corporate costs were $59 million in the first quarter 2021, down $13 million from $72 million in the prior year comparable period primarily due to transformation program savings, reduced spin related expenses and lower restructuring costs.
Net income for the first quarter 2021 was $49 million, or $0.33 per diluted common share, compared with a net loss of $21 million, or a loss of $0.17 per diluted common share, in the first quarter 2020.
Cash Flow and Liquidity
The company reported net cash provided by operating activities of $5 million for the first quarter 2021, an increase of $79 million from the prior year comparable period. This improvement was primarily due to higher net income. On April 3, 2021, Resideo had cash and cash equivalents of $508 million and total outstanding debt of $1.2 billion.
The company today updated its outlook for 2021 and now expects full year revenue to be in the range of $5.5 billion to $5.7 billion, gross profit margin in the range of 26% to 29% and operating profit in the range of $500 million to $550 million.
The company expects second quarter 2021 revenue to be in the range of $1.40 billion to $1.45 billion, gross profit margin in the range of 25.5% to 27.5% and operating profit in the range of $115 million to $125 million.
"Our positive momentum continued across both Products & Solutions and ADI in the first quarter," commented Jay Geldmacher, Resideo's president and CEO. "Residential market demand remains robust, and ADI is seeing improved activity in commercial markets. Strong top line performance along with our ongoing transformation work enabled us to expand our consolidated margins and overall profitability while also increasing our investment in both Products & Solutions and ADI.
"We are well positioned in both of our segments to take advantage of current market tailwinds and the positive long-term secular trends of increased investment in the home and demand for professional security solutions. While we continue to closely monitor developments around COVID-19 and supply chain and logistical challenges, our current visibility indicates a favorable operating environment as we move through 2021."
