Jeld-Wen announces rulings in Steves & Sons litigation

Jeld-Wen announced that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, has recently issued a number of rulings in the company's ongoing antitrust and trade secrets litigation with Steves & Sons. First, the District Court entered judgment against Steves in the amount of $1.2M, in accordance with the previously announced jury verdict in Jeld-Wen's favor on its claims that Steves misappropriated Jeld-Wen's trade secrets. Second, the District Court granted Jeld-Wen's motion to vacate the jury verdict on Steves' breach of contract claims related to the quality of the company's doorskins. This ruling eliminates $2.2M of damages under the previously announced jury verdict on Steves' breach of contract claims against Jeld-Wen. Lastly, the District Court ruled that divestiture of the company's facility in Towanda, Pennsylvania, the primary asset acquired in Jeld-Wen's 2012 acquisition of CraftMaster and one of the company's four domestic doorskin manufacturing facilities, is an appropriate remedy in the antitrust litigation. A final judgment on the antitrust claims and the breach of contract claims has not yet been entered in the case, and the company does not expect a final judgment until later this year. Jeld-Wen intends to vigorously oppose entry of an adverse judgment and to appeal any judgment that may be entered awarding damages to the Steves. The company expects that the next procedural step in the case will be a final determination of remedies, following which the Court will enter judgment. Under the ruling, if divestiture of the Towanda facility is included in the final judgment, such a divestiture would not be required until sometime after the appeal process is complete. The initial appeal process is expected to take approximately 9-18 months following entry of a final judgment. Should an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court be necessary, the appeal process would be extended by an additional 6-18 months. The company continues to believe that any remedy requiring the company to sell the Towanda facility is both unprecedented and fundamentally incorrect as a matter of law. Jeld-Wen believes that both the jury verdict on Steves' breach of contract and antitrust claims and the rulings on those claims are incorrect due to multiple flawed rulings during the trial process. These rulings improperly limited the company's defenses in the trial by excluding key evidence and other relevant matters from the jury's consideration. Evidence that the company was prevented from presenting to the jury included the favorable results of the two previous DOJ antitrust enforcement reviews, the significant profitability growth and expansion of Steves' own business since the 2012 acquisition, and other benefits to the market resulting from the combination of Jeld-Wen and CMI. Finally, the company maintains that a potential remedy of divestiture in this matter is contrary to established legal and equitable principles due to the significant passage of time since the acquisition, Steves' own misconduct in misappropriating Jeld-Wen's trade secrets and the availability of monetary remedies. For the fiscal year ended 2017, the Towanda facility generated external revenues of approximately $120M from Steves and other third-party customers related to doorskins and other building products. The company continues to supply doorskins to Steves in the ordinary course of business pursuant to a long-term agreement that is currently set to terminate in September 2021. The company is unable to predict the ultimate timing of, transaction terms, or proceeds from any divestiture of the Towanda facility. In the event that a divestiture is ultimately required, Jeld-Wen expects the Towanda facility to be sold to an independent third-party buyer, in which case the company expects to meet its internal requirements for doorskins currently supplied by the Towanda facility through other existing internal sources of supply and from a supply agreement with the new owner.

Macquarie starts 'best self-help story' Jeld-Wen at Outperform at Macquarie
As previously reported, Macquarie analyst Adam Baumgarten initiated Jeld-Wen with an Outperform rating, calling it the "best self-help story in building products." Given the steps already taken to improve interior door pricing dynamics and an experienced restructuring veteran now in charge, Baumgarten sees a "very positive" risk/reward, he tells investors. He set a $35 price target on Jeld-Wen shares.
