PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --

Refer to the "Segment and Product Group Information" table below for additional segment information (including information about the Company's Asia/Pacific segment and Administrative and All Other segment).
All comparisons below (which are generally indicated by words such as "increased," "decreased," "remained," or "compared to"), unless otherwise noted, are comparing the quarter ended September 30, 2021 with the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
2021 Third Quarter Financial Highlights
"We are very pleased with our continued solid financial and operational performance in the third quarter, with our income from operations increasing to $100.6 million, resulting in strong earnings per diluted share of $1.70," commented Karen Colonias, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. "During the third quarter, we experienced lighter sales volumes in North America in the distribution channels we serve. We believe our customers are adopting a more cautious stance in regard to their inventory levels given tightening labor and supply chain conditions and the potential impact on the building industry. Sales volumes also reflected an as expected decline year-over-year in our home center channel related to the load-in of our products at Lowe's during the third quarter of 2020 following their return as a home center customer. We expect volume levels in the home center channel to begin normalizing in the fourth quarter as demand increases and we lap the elevated volumes from our Lowe's product load-ins."
Ms. Colonias concluded, "We continue to remain focused on executing our key growth initiatives as well as providing capital returns to our stockholders. Our strong cash generation enabled us to invest $12.0 million for capital expenditures during the quarter as well as to pay $10.9 million in dividends and repurchase $24.1 million of Simpson common stock. While the macroeconomic landscape remains challenging for Simpson and its customers due to ongoing global supply chain constraints, limited steel availability and a tight labor market, we continue to deliver on the key elements of our business model to ensure we meet our customers' needs. I'd like to sincerely thank all of our employees for their commitment to Simpson and their dedication to health, safety and outstanding customer service."
On July 26, 2021, the Company provided a full-year outlook. The Company is updating certain elements of its outlook, primarily reflecting actual results of the third quarter as well as the Company's latest views on demand trends, raw material input costs and operating expenses. The Company's outlook for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2021 is as follows:
