Masco Corporation announced that it has concluded its strategic review of its Cabinetry and Windows businesses and will pursue the sale of these businesses.

“Since we announced the strategic review of our Cabinetry and Windows businesses in March, we have worked with our external advisors, our Cabinetry and Windows business units, and our Board of Directors to evaluate alternatives to best deliver long-term value for our shareholders,” said Keith Allman, Masco’s President and CEO. 

“We have determined that pursuing the sale of Masco Cabinetry, Milgard Windows and UK Window Group in three separate transactions is the most appropriate path forward to accomplish this value creation.  We expect that the sales of these businesses will be concluded in approximately six to nine months, assuming that each of these transactions can be completed on acceptable terms and conditions.”

“Over the past five years, we have executed on our strategy to reduce our cyclicality by increasing our exposure to the repair and remodel segment of the housing market,” continued Allman. “This began with the spin-off of our installation services business and continued with a focus on improving the operations of our Cabinetry and Windows businesses. The strategic actions we are announcing today will complete the process of reducing our exposure to the new construction segment of the market and position us to focus on our less cyclical Plumbing Products and Decorative Architectural Products businesses going forward,” concluded Allman.   

For 2018, the Cabinetry Products and Windows and Other Specialty Products segments on a combined basis reported $1.7 billion in net sales, $120 million in operating profit and $161 million in adjusted EBITDA (defined as operating profit plus depreciation and amortization expense of $36 million and excluding $5 million of rationalization charges), which represented 20 percent of Masco’s consolidated net sales, 10 percent of consolidated operating profit, and 11 percent of consolidated adjusted EBITDA.
