Mr. Flitman continued, “Looking at our progress, we are clearly leveraging the strength of our industry-leading platform, national network, operating model and robust demand environment to deliver exceptional growth, profitability and free cash flow. In addition, we continued to execute on our strategic priorities to invest both organically and through M&A, while returning capital to our shareholders through share repurchases. With a thoughtful and disciplined approach to deploying our capital, we are transforming the homebuilding industry through our investments in digital, expanding valued-added offerings for our customers, and making strategic acquisitions that bolster and extend our industry leadership position. For 2022, we continue to expect strong demand in single-family housing and across our portfolio of value-added products and solutions.”

Builders FirstSource Financial Performance Highlights - Fourth Quarter 2021 Compared to Combined Non-GAAP Pro Forma Fourth Quarter 2020

Net Sales

  • Net sales for the period were $4.6 billion, a 23.7% increase compared to the combined pro forma prior year period. Core organic sales increased by 11.7%, while commodity price inflation contributed 5.3% to net sales. Acquisitions, excluding the BMC merger, contributed net sales growth of 6.7%.
  • Core organic sales in value-added products grew by an estimated 28.3% compared with the combined pro forma prior year period. Robust demand nationally was somewhat restrained by material availability constraints.
  • Demand for single family housing continues to drive top-line growth. For the quarter, our core organic customer growth increased 14.4% for Single Family, 1.2% for R&R/Other and 6.7% for Multi Family.

Gross Profit

  • Gross profit was $1.5 billion, an increase of $511.3 million or 52.5% compared with the combined pro forma prior year period. Our gross margin increased 610 basis points to 32.1%, primarily driven by disciplined pricing in a volatile, supply-constrained marketplace, as well as effective and timely sourcing.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

  • SG&A was $864.0 million, an increase of approximately $189.0 million, or 28.0%, compared to the combined pro forma prior year period, driven primarily by expense related to the BMC merger and other acquisitions including amortization expense of acquired intangibles and one-time charges. Variable compensation was also higher due to the increase in profitability and core organic growth. As a percentage of net sales, total SG&A increased by 60 basis points to 18.6%.

Interest Expense

  • Interest expense increased by $5.8 million to $40.3 million compared to the same combined pro forma prior year period. The year-over-year increase is primarily due to the $1.0 billion senior unsecured Notes due 2032 issued in the third quarter, partially offset by the reduction in the senior secured Notes due 2027.

Income Tax Expense

  • Driven by higher profitability, income tax expense was $139.1 million, compared to $64.3 million in the combined pro forma prior year period. The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter was 23.9%, up 40 basis points versus the prior year period.

Net Income

  • Net income was $442.5 million, or $2.31 earnings per diluted share, compared to combined pro forma net income of $200.7 million, or $0.96 earnings per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. Adjusted net income was $532.4 million, or $2.78 adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to combined pro forma adjusted net income of $225.5 million, or $1.08 adjusted earnings per diluted share, in the prior year period. The 136.1% increase in adjusted net income was primarily driven by the increase in net sales and gross margin partially offset by higher income tax and SG&A expense described above. Adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes amortization and one-time expenses related to merger and acquisition activity.

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 110.0% to $793.4 million, driven by solid demand across our key customer end-markets, commodity inflation, and pricing.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin improved to a record 17.1%, which increased 700 basis points compared to the year-over-year pro forma period.

Builders FirstSource Financial Performance Highlights – Full Year 2021 Compared to Combined Non-GAAP Pro Forma Full Year 2020

  • Net sales for the period were $19.9 billion, a 55.8% increase compared to the pro forma year-over- year period. Commodity price inflation contributed 30.2% to net sales, while core organic sales increased by 20.6%. Acquisitions completed during 2021, excluding the BMC merger, contributed net sales growth of 5.4%, while the numbers of selling days reduced net sales growth by 0.4%.
  • Core organic sales in value-added products grew by an estimated 29.8%, led by 42.5% growth in our Manufactured Products category compared with the combined pro forma prior year period. Robust demand nationally was restrained by material availability constraints.
  • Strong execution and demand for single family housing continues to drive core organic growth. For the year-over-year period, our core organic growth increased 27.7% for Single Family, 1.8% for R&R/Other, and 1.5% for Multi Family.

Gross Profit

  • Gross profit was $5.9 billion, an increase of $2.6 billion or 77.7% compared with the combined pro forma prior year period. Our gross margin increased 360 basis points to 29.4%, primarily driven by disciplined pricing in a volatile, supply-constrained marketplace.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

  • SG&A was $3.5 billion, an increase of approximately $962.2 million or 38.5%, compared to the combined pro forma prior year period, driven primarily by expenses related to the BMC merger and other acquisitions, including amortization expense of acquired intangibles and one-time charges. Variable compensation was also higher due to the increase in profitability and core organic growth. As a percentage of net sales, total SG&A decreased by 220 basis points to 17.4% due to the effect of higher net sales against fixed costs and continued expense control.

Interest Expense

  • Interest expense decreased by $22.1 million to $135.9 million compared to the combined pro forma prior year period. The year-over-year decrease includes higher one-time charges of $29.4 million related to debt financing transactions during the twelve months of 2020, compared to $8.1 million in the twelve months of 2021.

Income Tax Expense

  • Driven by higher profitability, income tax expense was $526.1 million, compared to $148.3 million in the combined pro forma prior year period. The effective tax rate was 23.4%.

Net Income

  • Net income was $1.7 billion, or $8.48 earnings per diluted share, compared to combined pro forma of $484.8 million, or $2.34 earnings per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. Adjusted net income was $2.1 billion, or $10.32 adjusted earnings per diluted share, compared to a combined pro forma of $577.2 million, or $2.79 adjusted earnings per diluted share, in the prior year period. The 263.7% increase in adjusted net income was primarily driven by the increase in net sales and gross margin. Adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes amortization and one-time expenses related to merger and acquisition activity, as well as losses recognized on the refinancing and extinguishment of debt.

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 185.5% to $3.1 billion, driven by solid demand across single family home growth, commodity inflation, pricing, and cost leverage.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin improved to 15.4%, which increased 700 basis points compared to the year-over-year pro forma period.

Builders FirstSource Capital Structure, Leverage, and Liquidity Information

  • For the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, cash provided by operating activities was $1.7 billion; and cash used in investing activities was $1.3 billion, including capital expenditures of $214.3 million, net of proceeds. The Company’s free cash was an inflow of $1.5 billion, primarily driven by the impact of commodity inflation and core organic growth. The free cash flow yearly result was lower than our forecasted guide as a result of net outflow of working capital related to the timing of rising commodity prices in December.
  • Liquidity as of December 31, 2021 was $0.7 billion, consisting of approximately $0.7 billion in net borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility and $43 million of cash on hand.
  • As of December 31, 2021, Adjusted EBITDA, on a combined pro forma trailing twelve-month basis, was $3.1 billion and net debt was $2.9 billion, resulting in a decrease of our net leverage ratio from 1.3x to 1.0x.
  • In the fourth quarter, BFS repurchased approximately 16.5 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $70.89, for a total cost of approximately $1.2 billion. As of January 31, 2022, BFS completed its previously-announced $1.0 billion share repurchase authorization and as of January 31, 2022, BFS had approximately 176.8 million shares outstanding. For 2021, the Company repurchased approximately 27.5 million shares of its common stock at an average price of $63.63, for a total cost of approximately $1.7 billion.
  • In January 2022, the Company completed a private offering of an additional $300.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 2032 notes at an issue price equal to 100.50% of par value. Net proceeds from the offering were used to repay borrowings on the 2026 facility and to pay related transaction fees and expenses. In addition, the Company amended the 2026 facility to increase the total commitments by an aggregate amount of $400.0 million resulting in a new $1.8 billion amended credit facility.
  • In February 2022, the Board approved a new $1 billion share repurchase authorization.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this news release and the schedules hereto that are not purely historical facts or that necessarily depend upon future events, including statements about forecasted financial performance or other statements about anticipations, beliefs, expectations, hopes, synergies, intentions or strategies for the future, may be forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. In addition, oral statements made by our directors, officers and employees to the investor and analyst communities, media representatives and others, depending upon their nature, may also constitute forward-looking statements. As with the forward-looking statements included in this release, these forward-looking statements are by nature inherently uncertain, and actual results may differ materially as a result of many factors. All forward-looking statements are based upon information available to Builders FirstSource on the date this release was submitted. Builders FirstSource undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Any forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from the events or results described in the forward-looking statements, including risks or uncertainties related to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the Company’s business and the homebuilding industry, the Company’s growth strategies, including gaining market share and its digital strategies, or the Company’s revenues and operating results being highly dependent on, among other things, the homebuilding industry, lumber prices and the economy, including labor and supply shortages. Builders FirstSource may not succeed in addressing these and other risks. Further information regarding factors that could affect our financial and other results can be found in the risk factors section of Builders FirstSource’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and in the other reports Builders FirstSource files with the SEC. Consequently, all forward-looking statements in this release are qualified by the factors, risks and uncertainties contained therein.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The financial measures entitled Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income, diluted Adjusted net income per share and Free cash flow are not financial measures recognized under GAAP and are therefore non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and operating results.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income before depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, net, income tax expense and other non-cash or special items including stock compensation expense, acquisition and integration expense, debt issuance and refinancing costs, gains (loss) on sale and asset impairments and other items. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. Adjusted net income is defined as GAAP net income before non-cash or special items including acquisition and integration expense and debt issuance and refinancing cost offset by the tax effect of those adjustments to net income. Adjusted net income per diluted share is defined as Adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted common shares outstanding. Free cash flow is defined as GAAP net cash from operating activities less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from the sale of property, plant and equipment.

Company management uses Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted net income as supplemental measures in its evaluation of the Company’s business, including for trend analysis, purposes of determining management incentive compensation and budgeting and planning purposes. Company management believes that these measures provide a meaningful measure of the Company’s performance and a better baseline for comparing financial performance across periods because these measures eliminate the effects of period to period changes, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, in taxes, costs associated with capital investments, interest expense, stock compensation expense, and other non-cash and non-recurring items and, in the case of Adjusted net income, in certain non-recurring items. Company management also uses free cash flow as a supplemental measure in its evaluation of the Company’s business, including for purposes of its internal liquidity assessments. Company management believes that free cash flow provides a meaningful evaluation of the Company’s liquidity.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results, cash flows and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other companies in the Company’s industry, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, the Company’s calculation of these financial measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Company management does not consider these financial measures in isolation or as alternatives to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, items that are excluded and other adjustments and assumptions that are made in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company’s financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be evaluated in conjunction with, and are not a substitute for, the Company’s GAAP financial measures. Further, because these non-GAAP financial measures are not determined in accordance with GAAP and are thus susceptible to varying calculations, the non-GAAP financial measures, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables below.

The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA outlook, free cash flow and full-year forecast for its effective tax rate on operations exclude the impact of certain income and expense items that management believes are not part of underlying operations. These items may include, but are not limited to, loss on early extinguishment of debt, restructuring charges, certain tax items, and charges associated with non-recurring professional and legal fees associated with acquisitions. The Company’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort the impact these income and expense items will have on its reported net income, operating cash flow and its reported effective tax rate because these items, which could be significant, are difficult to predict and may be highly variable. As a result, the Company does not provide a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measure for its Adjusted EBITDA or free cash flow outlook or its effective tax rate on operations forecast. Please see the Forward-Looking Statements section of this release for a discussion of certain risks relevant to the Company’s outlook.

Comparisons to the prior period include prior year results on a combined Non-GAAP Pro Forma basis.

Pro Forma Combined Financial Data

For avoidance of doubt, the pro forma combined unaudited and adjusted information also was not intended to be, and was not, prepared on a basis consistent with the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information included the Pro Forma S-4 Filing, which provides the pro forma financial information prepared in accordance with Article 11 of SEC Regulation S-X. For instance, the supplemental unaudited combined financial information does not give effect to the BMC merger under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standard Codification Topic 805, Business Combinations (“ASC Topic 805”), with Builders FirstSource treated as the legal and accounting acquirer, and was not prepared to reflect the merger as if it occurred on the first day of any of the fiscal periods presented. The pro forma combined unaudited and adjusted information has not been adjusted to give effect to pro forma events that are (1) directly attributable to the merger, (2) factually supportable, or (3) expected to have a continuing impact on the combined results of Builders FirstSource and BMC. Consequently, the pro forma combined unaudited and adjusted information is intentionally different from, but does not supersede, the pro forma financial information set forth in the Pro Forma S-4 Filing or the pro forma financial information set forth in the Company’s most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q.

In addition, the pro forma combined unaudited and adjusted information does not purport to indicate the results that actually would have been obtained had the companies been operated together during the periods presented, or which may be realized in the future. The pro forma combined unaudited and adjusted information have no impact on Builders FirstSource’s or BMC’s previously reported consolidated balance sheets or statements of operations, cash flows or equity.
