• Other Specialty Products’ net sales increased 8 percent, led by Milgard Windows’ strong performance across all channels and geographies

Outlook

“Masco has delivered a strong first half of the year and we are proud of our focus and execution,” said Mr. Allman. “With the completion of the spin-off of TopBuild Corp., we begin a new chapter in Masco’s history focused on driving shareholder value through our portfolio of industry-leading branded building products, operational excellence and disciplined capital allocation. Our Cabinetry business has returned to profitability and we expect the momentum it has built over the first half of the year to continue. For the balance of 2015, we believe the underlying demand for our market-leading products will increase and that the repair and remodeling environment will continue to improve. We believe we are positioned to capitalize on these opportunities. Reflecting confidence in Masco’s future outlook, our Board of Directors intends to increase our annual dividend by $0.02 per share to $0.38 beginning with the quarterly dividend to be paid in the fourth quarter of 2015.”

TopBuild Spin-Off from Masco Corporation Completed and Trading as Independent Company Begins (7/01/15)

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TopBuild Corp. (NYSE: BLD), the leading installer and distributor of insulation products to the United States construction industry, announced today the successful completion of its spin-off from Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS) into an independent, publicly-traded company.

TopBuild is comprised of the former Masco Contractor Services business, now called TruTeam, a nationwide installer of insulation, and Service Partners, a nationwide distributor of residential insulation products and related accessories. TopBuild reported revenue of $1.5 billion in 2014, which represents a compound annual growth rate of 12% since 2012.

After market close on June 30, 2015, Masco Corporation distributed to its stockholders one share of TopBuild common stock for every nine shares of Masco common stock held at time of close of business on the record date of June 19, 2015. TopBuild common stock will begin "regular-way" trading today under the symbol "BLD" on the New York Stock Exchange.

"Today we begin a new chapter in the exciting TopBuild story by becoming a separately traded public company. As the leading installer and distributor of insulation products in the United States, we serve residential and commercial builders of all sizes from coast to coast. Our geographic presence and industry leading service positions us extremely well to drive shareholder value," said Jerry Volas, TopBuild' s Chief Executive Officer.

He continued, "Being part of Masco for the past 20 years has provided TopBuild with the people, processes and systems to prosper as a separate company. On behalf of our 8,000 associates nationwide, I would like to thank everyone at Masco who has contributed to our success. We welcome Masco's shareholders as our own and we look forward to continued success."

Masco Corporation Approves Spin-off of TopBuild Corp. (6/08/15)

Record Date June 19, 2015

TAYLOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Masco Corporation (NYSE:MAS) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved the previously-announced spin-off of TopBuild Corp. (NYSE:BLD), which will, upon completion of the spin-off, hold the assets and operations of Masco’s Installation and Other Services businesses.

In the spin-off, Masco will distribute 100% of the shares of common stock of TopBuild. The distribution of TopBuild shares is expected to be completed after the New York Stock Exchange market closing on June 30, 2015, with Masco stockholders receiving one share of TopBuild common stock for every nine shares of Masco common stock held at the close of business on the record date of June 19, 2015. Following the distribution of TopBuild common stock, TopBuild will be an independent, publicly-traded company. TopBuild has received approval for the listing of its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "BLD."

Keith Allman, Masco’s President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Last fall, we announced our plan to spin off TopBuild as part of our strategic initiatives to enhance shareholder value. Under the leadership of Jerry Volas as its Chief Executive Officer, I am confident that TopBuild is well positioned to operate as an independent public company. Following the spin-off, both TopBuild and Masco will have greater flexibility to focus on and pursue their respective growth strategies. For Masco, this is our ongoing commitment to create shareholder value by profitably growing in branded building products.”

Masco stockholders who hold their shares through a brokerage account will receive a credit to their brokerage account reflecting their ownership of TopBuild common stock. Masco stockholders who hold their shares in certificated form will receive a book-entry account statement reflecting their ownership of TopBuild common stock and should retain their Masco stock certificates. Fractional shares of TopBuild common stock will not be distributed. Any fractional share of TopBuild common stock otherwise issuable to a Masco stockholder will be sold in the open market on such stockholder's behalf, and such stockholder will receive a cash payment for the fractional share based on the stockholder’s pro rata portion of the net cash proceeds from sales of all fractional shares.

Masco will furnish an information statement to all stockholders entitled to receive the distribution of shares of TopBuild common stock. The information statement describes TopBuild and other details regarding the spin-off. The information statement is included as an exhibit to TopBuild's Registration Statement on Form 10, which it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is available at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

The completion of the distribution is subject to satisfaction of a number of customary conditions, including the SEC having declared effective TopBuild's Registration Statement on Form 10.

Masco expects to receive an opinion from its special tax counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, confirming the tax-free status of the spin-off to Masco and its stockholders (except to the extent of cash received in lieu of fractional shares).

Masco expects that a "when-issued" public trading market for TopBuild common stock will commence on or about June 17, 2015 under the symbol “BLD WI”, and will continue through the distribution date. Masco also anticipates that "regular way" trading of TopBuild common stock will begin on July 1, 2015, the first trading day following the distribution date.

Masco expects that, beginning on or about June 17, 2015, and through the distribution date, there will be two ways to trade Masco common stock – either with or without the distribution of TopBuild common stock. Masco stockholders who sell their shares of Masco common stock in the "regular-way" market (that is, the normal trading market on the NYSE under the symbol "MAS") after the June 19 record date and on or prior to the June 30 distribution date will be selling their right to receive shares of TopBuild common stock in connection with the spin-off. Masco also expects that shares of Masco common stock will trade ex-distribution (that is, without the right to receive the TopBuild distribution) during this period under the symbol "MAS WI." Investors are encouraged to consult with their financial advisors regarding the specific implications of buying or selling shares of Masco common stock on or before the distribution date.

Greenhill & Co., LLC and J.P. Morgan Securities LLC acted as financial advisors to Masco regarding the spin-off.

“We capped off 2014 with another solid quarter as sales increased 3 percent for the total company and, importantly, adjusted operating income increased 32 percent,” said Masco’s President and CEO, Keith Allman. “Our portfolio of industry-leading plumbing businesses continues to perform, delivering increased revenue and profit growth, which resulted in a record sales year for both Delta Faucet and Hansgrohe. New products and program wins at Behr Process and Liberty Hardware drove the performance of our Decorative Architectural segment, and our Installation and Other Services segment capitalized on the housing recovery and ongoing growth of its commercial business. Our window businesses also benefitted from improving macro trends in their respective markets and continued success from recently introduced products. While our Cabinet and Related Products segment faced lingering demand challenges from an ERP implementation, we believe we are taking the necessary actions to position it for profitability in 2015.”

2014 Full-Year Commentary

• Net sales increased 4 percent to $8.5 billion, compared to 2013

• Compared to full-year 2013, results for key financial measures, as adjusted for certain items (see Exhibit A) and with a normalized tax rate of 36 percent, were as follows: ? Gross profit margins were 28.4 percent compared to 28.0 percent

? Operating profit margins were 10.0 percent compared to 8.8 percent

? Income from continuing operations was $1.02 per common share compared to $0.77 per common share

• Income from continuing operations, as reported, was $2.39 per common share compared to $0.83 per common share in 2013

• Free cash flow exceeded $440 million

“2014 was a notable year for Masco,” said Keith Allman. “Our customer-focused innovation as well as our productivity improvements and cost control yielded steady sales growth and substantially improved margins. Our balance sheet continues to improve as we ended the year with $1.7 billion of liquidity. Throughout the year we also took a number of actions to drive shareholder value. In September, we announced the spin-off of our Services Business and remain on-track for it to be complete by mid-year 2015. Additionally, the restructuring of our corporate office has resulted in a leaner operating model, yielding annual savings of approximately $35-40 million. Furthermore, our commitment to returning capital to shareholders was enhanced through an increase in our dividend and a new share repurchase authorization. During the fourth quarter of 2014 we repurchased 1.4 percent of our outstanding shares or 5 million shares.”

2015 Outlook

“Our strong execution in 2014 gives us momentum as we enter 2015,” continued Mr. Allman. “We remain committed to serving the customer by accelerating our innovation pipeline and continuing our strong operating performance. We expect to gain share and drive consumer demand as we leverage our industry-leading brands and new products. We are confident in our ability to execute in this improving environment and believe the strategic initiatives we announced in 2014 will drive shareholder value as we move into 2015.”

Masco Announces Strategic Initiatives to Drive Shareholder Value: Company to Spin-Off Installation and Other Services Segment, Initiate Significant Share Repurchase Program and Reduce Corporate Expense (9/30/14)

TAYLOR, Mich., Sept. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS) today announced its Board of Directors has approved the strategic initiatives recommended by management under the leadership of Keith Allman, its President and Chief Executive Officer.

The strategic initiatives, which are designed to drive shareholder value over the mid- to long-term, are comprised of:

•The spin-off of 100 percent of Masco's Installation and Other Services businesses ("Services Business") into an independent, publicly-traded company through a tax-free stock distribution to Masco's shareholders

•The implementation of a share repurchase program for an aggregate of 50 million shares of Masco's common stock

•The reduction of corporate expense and simplification of Masco's organizational structure, resulting in an estimated charge of approximately $30 million over the next several quarters with anticipated company-wide annual savings of $35-40 million

Mr. Allman stated, "Today's transformative actions reflect our continued commitment to enhance shareholder value through the active management of our portfolio, effective capital allocation, cost control, and organizational focus. As separate companies, both Masco and the Services Business will have greater flexibility to focus on and pursue their respective growth strategies. In addition, the actions we are taking at the corporate office are intended to improve our cost position and drive value across our enterprise. Masco remains committed to creating shareholder value by profitably growing in branded building products."

Mr. Allman continued, "Over the past several years, Masco has strengthened the Services Business by reducing fixed costs and implementing lean processes to achieve supply chain savings. As such, we believe the Services Business is now properly positioned to operate as a separate company. The Services Business will focus on growth by capitalizing on North American new home construction as well as further expanding into commercial and retrofit categories. Masco shareholders stand to benefit from the additional value created by the spin-off."

Masco is pleased to announce the Service Business management team:

•Jerry Volas, currently Masco Group President, will become the Chief Executive Officer

•Robert Buck, currently Masco Contractor Services' President, will become the President and Chief Operating Officer

•John Peterson, currently Masco Contractor Services' Chief Financial Officer, will become the Chief Financial Officer

All three have extensive industry experience and have been instrumental in positioning the Services Business for growth and profitability.

Masco also announced today that its Board has approved the repurchase of an aggregate of 50 million shares of the Company's common stock, which represents approximately 14 percent of Masco's currently outstanding shares. Repurchases are expected to be made over a multi-year period beginning in 2014. The repurchases will be funded through cash on hand and operating cash flow. As of June 30, 2014, cash on hand was $1.4 billion.

Mr. Allman added, "This authorization reflects the Board's continued confidence in Masco's future performance, our ability to generate long-term cash flow, the strength of Masco's liquidity, and our ongoing commitment to create shareholder value."

The Company will hold an investor day on February 9, 2015 in New York at which time it will discuss its outlook for 2015 and the long-term growth strategy for each of its businesses.

Masco

Following the separation, Masco will continue to be listed on the NYSE under "MAS," and will remain headquartered in Taylor, Michigan. Masco will continue to build on its leading positions in branded building products.

New Services Business

Masco's Installation and Other Services segment, which includes Masco Contractor Services, the leading installer of insulation in the U.S., and Service Partners, a leading distributor of residential insulation products and related accessories in the U.S., reported revenue of $1.4 billion in 2013. This segment is comprised of 190 branch locations and 70 distribution centers and its revenue has achieved a compounded annual growth rate of nearly 11 percent since 2010. The Services Business will be headquartered in Central Florida.

Next Steps

Masco expects to complete the separation by mid- 2015.

MASCO DELIVERS OPERATING GROWTH IN SECOND QUARTER 2014 (7/28/14)

Key Highlights

- Sales increased 5 percent to $2.3 billion

- Adjusted operating profit margin increased to 11 percent

- Adjusted operating profit grew by 21 percent

- Adjusted EPS grew 39 percent to $.32 per common share

TAYLOR, Mich. (July 28, 2014) - Masco Corporation MAS +6.02% delivered sales and operating profit growth in the second quarter of 2014 driven primarily by the Plumbing Products, Installation and Other Services and Decorative Architectural Products segments. Increased international sales were strengthened by the plumbing businesses benefitting from an improving European economic landscape and strong operational performance. Adjusted operating profit margin rose to 11 percent, reflecting the Company's strong operating leverage and focused cost control.

2014 Second Quarter Commentary

- Net sales from continuing operations increased 5 percent to $2.3 billion, compared with $2.1 billion for second quarter 2013. North American sales increased 4 percent and international sales increased 9 percent in U.S. dollars and 2 percent in local currency

- Compared to second quarter 2013, results for key financial measures, as adjusted for certain items (see Exhibit A) and with a normalized tax rate of 36 percent, were as follows:

- Gross margins improved to 29.2 percent compared to 28.9 percent

- Decorative Architectural Products' net sales increased 5 percent, driven by new products and programs

- Cabinets and Related Products' net sales decreased 5 percent, as a mid-single-digit percentage increase in sales to dealers was more than offset by lower sales to home centers

"We delivered a solid second quarter marked by revenue growth and strong profitability," said Masco's President and CEO, Keith Allman. "Our focus on our key priorities, which include growing share of our market-leading brands, accelerating our customer-focused innovation pipeline, further penetrating international markets and driving operational leverage through cost containment, was demonstrated in our performance despite a more moderate housing recovery."

Outlook

"As we move into the third quarter, we continue to see growing demand for our products and services across our end markets. Our outlook remains positive with the belief that new home construction and repair and remodel activity will show steady growth in 2014. We believe we are well positioned to grow our key brands and to gain market share in this environment. While there is pent-up demand for high-ticket items such as cabinets, we expect that this category will continue to lag in the short term compared to other segments as consumers defer discretionary high-ticket expenditures. We remain committed to realizing the full potential of our core businesses, leveraging opportunities across our portfolio and actively managing the portfolio to drive long-term shareholder value."

Investors Hope Masco Goes to Pieces (6/17/14)

Shares Surged After CEO's Comments

Masco Corp., maker of some of the best-known products in the home-improvement and home-construction business, is suddenly in favor on Wall Street. The reason: speculation that the company will spin off or sell some of its top brands.

Masco is one of the largest vendors to Home Depot Inc. and Lowe's Cos., which sell hundreds of the company's products including Delta faucets, KraftMaid cabinets, Behr paints and Milgard windows and doors. The company also sells to home builders and installs its products in homes under construction.

But at an investor conference last month, Masco's new chief executive, Keith Allman, hinted that the company might have too many brands and divisions. He said he is reviewing Masco's multiple business lines and considering strategies to boost Masco's value.

The comments set off a rally that boosted Masco's common stock 11.5% in the past month, before a slight pullback in the past week. It closed Tuesday at $21.72, down 0.3% on the New York Stock Exchange but still near its 52-week high of $23.63 set in March.

In an interview this week, Mr. Allman said he hasn't yet made any major decisions about Masco's many businesses but indicated that big changes are ahead for the 85-year-old company.

"I view myself as a transformational leader," said Mr. Allman, who joined Masco in 1998 and oversaw its plumbing and North American cabinet divisions before his promotion to CEO in January. "That's how the board views me, and that's why they appointed me. I'm not a status-quo guy." He said possible changes could include divestitures, acquisitions, internal integrations or stock buybacks.

Many Wall Street analysts predict that Masco, based in Taylor, Mich., will make a move next year at the earliest, perhaps by divesting its cabinet-manufacturing division or the installation-services division that caters to home builders. Both divisions posted operating losses in the first quarter. Cabinets are losing sales due to increased competition while the installation business remains challenged even after significant cost-cutting, analysts say.

What Masco needs most, several analysts say, is a further improvement in the home-construction market to soak up excess capacity in its manufacturing plants. The company ramped up its capacity drastically in recent decades through acquisitions. Since the downturn, it has cut $600 million of fixed costs, closing 39 plants. But analysts say it still needs more production volume to help its businesses reach consistent profitability.

"It's kind of like having a Porsche engine in a VW frame," said Robert Wetenhall, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets. "The company is built to operate in a much more robust housing market. This would be a much more profitable company at 1.4 million housing starts [annually in the U.S.], but we'll be lucky to do 1 million this year."

Adding to the challenges at Masco, activist investor Daniel Loeb's Third Point LLC recently disclosed in a securities filing that it took a 1.3% stake in the company in the first quarter. A spokeswoman for Third Point, which bought 4.75 million Masco shares last quarter, declined to comment about Masco this week. Mr. Allman said he has spoken with Third Point, as he has with other investors, but he declined to elaborate.

Some analysts theorize that if Masco spun off some of its laggard divisions, its stronger units like plumbing and paint likely would get higher valuations from investors, they say.

Nishu Sood, a Deutsche Bank Securities analyst, estimates that breaking up Masco would yield value of roughly $27 a share, a 24% premium to Tuesday's closing price. "Our analysis showed that, in a portfolio as large as Masco's, there is some value that could be unlocked by taking some dramatic actions, like spinoffs or sales, and improving some of the businesses where margins have lagged its peers," Mr. Sood said.

Masco's origins date back to 1929, when Alex Manoogian started machining parts for the auto industry. In 1954, the company branched out into making single-handle faucets under the Delta brand. Masco expanded into cabinets in 1985 and into paint, windows and services in the 1990s.

The company's revenue swelled to more than $12.7 billion in 2006, then plummeted during the housing downturn, which left Masco with too much manufacturing capacity. The company posted losses from 2008 to 2012. Last year, things started to turn around and Masco reported net income of $272 million on revenue of $8.2 billion.
