Builders FirstSource Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

Continuing sales momentum, disciplined execution and cost management drive solid profit growth

DALLAS, Aug. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Builders FirstSource, Inc. (Nasdaq:  BLDR) today reported its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Commenting on the results, CEO Chad Crow remarked, “Our team delivered another quarter of solid revenue and profit growth.  We increased sales by 13.4 percent to $2.1 billion, including double-digit growth in our higher margin value added products, and improved Adjusted EBITDA by over 12 percent to $139 million. We continue to execute on our strategic plan and investments in margin accretive value added products as well as customer service and efficiency enhancing initiatives which are targeted to generate strong, sustained earnings and cash flow growth.”

Peter Jackson, CFO, added, “I am pleased to report that we have once again demonstrated our ability to deliver strong Adjusted EBITDA growth in a volatile commodities market.  Our team was able to react quickly to offset the impact of commodity fluctuations on our gross margin percentage with disciplined cost management enabling us to maintain Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales year over year. We continued to fund value creating growth investments while reducing our leverage ratio by 0.3x versus prior year, and we remain on track to deleverage below 3.5x by year end.”

The Company has provided supplemental non-GAAP financial information of the consolidated company that is adjusted to exclude one-time integration, facility closure, and other one-time refinancing and other costs (“Adjusted”). As the information included below includes non-GAAP financial information, please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for non-GAAP reconciliations to their GAAP equivalents. 

Second Quarter 2018 Compared to Second Quarter 2017:

Net Sales

  • Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 were $2.1 billion, a 13.4 percent increase over net sales for the second quarter of 2017, including approximately 8.8 percent from the impact of commodity price inflation and 4.6 percent from sales volume growth. Sales volume, excluding commodity inflation, grew approximately 6.0 percent in the single family homebuilding end market and 1.8 percent in the repair and remodeling/other end market, offset by declines in multi-family. Value added products sales, including our windows, doors and millwork and manufactured products categories, grew by 11.1 percent.

Gross Margin

  • Gross margin of $496.3 million in the second quarter of 2018 increased by $35.5 million over the second quarter of 2017. Gross margin percentage was 23.7 percent, a decrease of 130 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2017.  Our gross margin decreased largely due to the sharp rise in commodity prices relative to our short-term customer pricing commitments. Although rapid commodity inflation can cause short term gross margin percentage compression as prices are rising, higher sustained commodity prices generally benefit the Company’s gross profit and Adjusted EBITDA dollars.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

  • SG&A in the second quarter of 2018 was $391.8 million or 18.7 percent of sales, a decrease of 130 basis points versus the second quarter of 2017. The significant decrease in SG&A as a percent of sales was driven by cost leverage and continued cost management, which enabled the company to fully offset the short term impact of commodity inflation on Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales.

Interest Expense

  • Interest expense in the second quarter of 2018 was $29.0 million compared to $33.7 million in the second quarter of 2017.  The year over year reduction is largely a result of refinancing transactions the Company executed in 2017 to lower go forward interest, slightly offset by rising market interest rates.

Income Tax Expense

  • Although the Company did not pay federal cash taxes, GAAP income tax expense in the second quarter of 2018 was $19.0 million compared to income tax expense of $19.7 million in the second quarter of 2017.  This represents a 25.1% effective tax rate, which is in line with the company’s balance of year expectations.

Net Income

  • GAAP net income for the second quarter 2018 was $56.6 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared to $37.9 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2017.
  • Adjusted net income was $62.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $43.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. The year over year increase of $19.6 million, or 45.6 percent, was primarily driven by sales growth, cost management, and lower interest expense.   

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA grew $15.1 million to $139.1 million, or 6.7 percent of sales, compared to $124.0 million, or 6.7 percent of sales, for the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 12.2 percent.  The year over year improvement was largely driven by sales increases, and strong, sustained cost management which enabled the company to fully offset the short term impact of commodity inflation on Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of sales.

Year to Date June 30, 2018 Financial Information:

Net Sales

  • Net sales year to date were $3.8 billion, a 12.3 percent increase over the first half of 2017.

Net Income

  • In the first half of 2018, GAAP net income was $79.8 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, compared to $41.7 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the first half of 2017, an increase of $0.32 per diluted share, or 88.9 percent.
  • Adjusted net income was $90.2 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared to $55.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, in the first half of 2017, an increase of $0.29 per diluted share.  The year over year increase of $35.1 million, or 63.7 percent, was primarily driven by the Company’s sales growth, ongoing cost management, and lower interest expense. 

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2018 grew $21.7 million to $221.8 million, or 5.9 percent of sales, compared to $200.1 million, or 5.9 percent of sales, for the first half of 2017, an increase of 10.8 percent. The year over year improvement was primarily attributable to sales growth and ongoing cost management, offset in part by the impact of commodity inflation on gross margin.

Capital Structure, Leverage, and Liquidity Information:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, on a trailing 12 month basis, was $440.6 million and net debt was $1,972.8 million as of June 30, 2018. The Company decreased its leverage ratio versus June 30th, 2017 by 0.3x, to 4.5x net debt / Adjusted EBITDA. The Company expects to reduce its leverage ratio to below 3.5x by year end. 
  • Due to seasonal working capital needs in the first half, net cash used in operations and investing was $217.8 million.  The Company expects to generate $170-190 million in cash from operations and investing activities for the full year 2018, in line with its full year cash flow guidance.
  • Liquidity at June 30, 2018 was $298.0 million, which consisted of net borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility and cash on hand.

Please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for more information.

Outlook
Concluding, Mr. Crow added, “I remain extremely confident in the outlook for Builders FirstSource and our opportunities for sustained profitable growth.  Furthermore, demand in the housing industry remains strong, lumber cost headwinds are starting to abate and we continue to grow high margin value added products faster than the market. We are increasingly capitalizing on numerous opportunities by leveraging our national footprint, strong customer relationships, end market diversity, and operational excellence initiatives as well as creating meaningful value through our focused initiatives on cost efficiencies and differentiated customer service offerings. I want to thank all of our talented associates for their exceptional execution, hard work and once again delivering such strong results.”
