Jeld-Wen Holding's net revenue for the 1Q 2021 increased by $113.2 million, or 11.6%, to $1,092.4 million, compared to $979.2 million for the same period last year.
Net income was $25.5 million during the 1Q 2021, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million in the same quarter last year, an increase of $25.7 million. The increase in net income was primarily due to higher gross profit from improved price realization, operating leverage from volume/mix and operational improvements, partially offset by higher SG&A. The effective book income tax rate during the quarter was 28.9%.
Adjusted net income for the 1Q 2021 increased $14.8 million, or 113%, to $27.9 million, compared to $13.1 million in the same quarter last year.
1Q 2021 adjusted EBITDA increased $23.4 million, or 31.4%, to $97.9 million, compared to the same quarter last year. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 9% increased by 140 basis points compared to the prior year.
