Management Remarks

"We began 2022 on a strong note with both ADI and Products & Solutions delivering year-over-year sales and profitability expansion," commented Jay Geldmacher, Resideo's President and CEO. "Overall demand indicators remain positive across the business as residential and commercial customers invest to improve the security, energy efficiency and comfort of their surroundings."

"At ADI we continue to expand digital initiatives to support improved customer experience and invest in tools to drive sales force effectiveness, while also focusing on capturing value from the current pricing environment. Products & Solutions is delivering strong realization on 2021 price actions and demand continues to outstrip our ability to fully supply. We closed the acquisitions of First Alert and Arrow Wire & Cable and we are excited to welcome the respective teams to Resideo. We are hitting the ground running on unlocking the meaningful value creation opportunity we see from bringing these organizations together with Products & Solutions and ADI."

Products & Solutions First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue of $619 million, up 2% compared to the first quarter 2021
  • Operating profit of $153 million, up 18% compared to the first quarter 2021
  • Completed acquisition of First Alert on March 31, adding highly complementary smoke and carbon monoxide detection home safety products

Products & Solutions delivered revenue of $619 million in the first quarter 2022, up 2% compared to first quarter 2021. Strong flow through of price adjustments put in place throughout 2021 drove the year-over-year revenue expansion. Demand remains healthy in our air and energy product categories across channels, which offset softness in security products. The supply chain environment remained challenging during the first quarter. This included both materials sourcing, particularly related to semiconductor components, and shipping costs, which remained at historically elevated levels. Products & Solutions continues to make progress deepening its relationships with key customers and partners and is actively expanding efforts within attractive growth categories. This includes initiatives targeting residential new construction, multi-family, hydrogen and energy management.

Gross margin for the quarter was 42.8%, compared to 38.0% in first quarter 2021. Pricing activity and annual inventory revaluation benefited first quarter gross margin and helped offset year-over-year material input cost inflation. Operating profit for the quarter was $153 million, or 24.7% of revenue, up 18% compared to first quarter 2021 and representing a 320 basis point expansion in operating margin.

The acquisition of First Alert, a leader in the residential smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detection markets, closed on March 31, 2022. First Alert expands Resideo's sensors within the home and occupies a highly strategic position on the ceiling. Efforts are already underway to leverage the significant strategic opportunity from a channel perspective and in exploring potential from more tightly integrating First Alert's offerings with existing products. This includes the opportunity to drive category growth in connected offerings.

ADI Global Distribution First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue of $887 million, up 9% compared to the first quarter 2021
  • Operating profit of $80 million, up 36% compared to the first quarter 2021
  • E-commerce sales growth of 24%, accounting for 17% of ADI total sales
  • Expanded data communications offering with acquisition of Arrow Wire & Cable

ADI first quarter 2022 revenue of $887 million was up 9% compared to the first quarter 2021. Growth was driven by volume expansion, recent acquisitions and a strong pricing environment. Demand was strongest in categories that typically serve commercial end markets including fire and access control. Vendor supply issues remained a headwind to growth, particularly in the video surveillance category. Sales through ADI's e-commerce channel grew 24%, representing 17% of total ADI sales, and private brands sales grew over 40% compared to first quarter 2021.  

Gross margin of 19.2% in the first quarter 2022 was up 200 basis points compared to first quarter 2021. This expansion was driven by ADI capturing the benefits of the current inflationary pricing environment, progress on ADI specific price optimization efforts and expansion of private brands. ADI is continuing to invest in and roll out tools to enable its sales team to better understand and serve customers, which has had significant benefit on sales efficiency. Operating profit of $80 million for first quarter 2022 was up 36% from $59 million in first quarter 2021, reaching 9% of revenue.

During the first quarter ADI saw significant growth in key adjacent categories of professional and residential audio visual and in data communications. In the first quarter, ADI completed the acquisition of Arrow Wire & Cable, a U.S. west coast distributor of data communications products. The acquisition complements the 2021 acquisition of Norfolk Wire & Electronics geographically, strengthening ADI's position in a key strategic growth category. Arrow is the fourth acquisition for ADI since 2020.

First Quarter 2022 Performance

Consolidated revenue of $1.51 billion in the first quarter 2022 grew 6% compared with the prior year of $1.42 billion. Gross profit margin for the first quarter 2022 was 28.8%, up 290 basis points compared to 25.9% in the prior year. Resideo's operating profit of $172 million in the first quarter 2022 compared to a prior year operating profit of $130 million. Total Corporate costs were $61 million, up from $59 million in the prior year primarily due to $10 million of one-time transaction costs associated with the First Alert acquisition. Net income for the first quarter 2022 was $87 million, or $0.58 per diluted common share, compared with $49 million, or $0.33 per diluted common share, in the prior year.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

First quarter 2022 net cash used by operating activities of $59 million compared to cash provided by operating activities of $5 million in the prior year comparable period. The use of cash was primarily due to typical seasonal timing of cash payments for bonus and customer rebate payments accrued in prior periods, higher working capital to support growth and a strategic decision to increase inventory levels. At April 2, 2022, Resideo had cash and cash equivalents of $244 million and total outstanding debt of $1.4 billion.


Based on first quarter results and the outlook for the remainder of 2022, the company now expects full year 2022 revenue to be in the range of $6.45 billion to $6.65 billion, gross profit margin in the range of 27.5% to 28.5% and operating profit in the range of $680 million to $720 million.

The company expects second quarter 2022 revenue to be in the range of $1.65 billion to $1.70 billion, gross profit margin in the range of 27.0% to 28.0% and operating profit in the range of $165 million to $175 million.
