BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. Announces 2019 First Quarter Results

RALEIGH, N.C., May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (BMCH) (“BMC” or the “Company”), one of the leading providers of diversified building products, services and innovative solutions in the U.S. residential construction market, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures” section of this press release.

First Quarter 2019 Highlights (Comparisons are to Prior Year Period)

  • Net sales of $825.4 million, a decrease of 1.1% primarily driven by commodity price deflation and one less selling day, partially offset by other organic growth of 3.2% and acquisition growth of 3.2%
  • Net income of $20.4 million, an increase of $5.0 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $54.4 million, an increase of $7.2 million or 15.3%
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin (non-GAAP) of 6.6%, an increase of 90 basis points
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.30, an increase of $0.07
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share (non-GAAP) of $0.37, an increase of $0.08
  • Cash provided by operating activities of $77.8 million, an increase of $54.5 million
  • Completed the acquisitions of Barefoot and Company and Locust Lumber enhancing the Company’s market position in Charlotte, NC
  • Repurchased 0.9 million shares at an average price of $17.07 during the quarter 

“Coming on the heels of our exceptional 2018 operating performance, we are pleased to deliver a strong start to 2019, reflecting continued solid execution of our strategy and stable levels of construction activity in our markets,” said Dave Flitman, President and Chief Executive Officer of BMC.  “Solid 3.2% organic growth helped to offset the top line declines we projected due to commodity price deflation and one less selling day, and our team’s commitment to driving continuous improvement led to increased profitability and cash generation.  Specifically, we grew net income by 32.5% to $20.4 million, more than tripled our cash provided by operating activities to $77.8 million and increased our Adjusted EBITDA by 15.3% to $54.4 million while improving Adjusted EBITDA margin by 90 basis points.  In addition, we completed the acquisitions of Barefoot and Company and Locust Lumber in the Charlotte, NC market and continue to explore numerous opportunities for additional strategic bolt-on acquisitions.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results Compared to Prior Year Period

  • Net sales decreased 1.1% to $825.4 million, primarily driven by commodity price deflation.  Specifically, the Company estimates that net sales decreased 4.7% from lumber & lumber sheet goods commodity price deflation, 1.6% from one less selling day versus the prior year period and 1.2% from the disposition of the Coleman Floor business.  These decreases were partially offset by an increase of 3.2% from the acquisitions of Barefoot and Company, Locust Lumber and Shone Lumber (in the prior year) and an increase of 3.2% from other organic growth.
  • Gross profit increased 8.6% to $216.1 million.  Gross profit as a percentage of sales (gross margin) was 26.2%, as compared to 23.9% for the first quarter of 2018.  This result reflects a 310 basis point year-over-year improvement in gross margin within the lumber and lumber sheet goods category and a 570 basis point improvement within structural components.
  • Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased $9.7 million to $169.9 million.  Approximately $5.4 million of this increase related to selling, general and administrative expenses of Barefoot and Company, Locust Lumber and Shone Lumber and $4.7 million of this increase related to variable compensation such as salesperson commissions, stock-based compensation, profit-based incentives and related payroll taxes and benefits.  These increases were partially offset by a net decrease of $0.4 million in other SG&A expenses.  SG&A expenses as a percent of net sales were 20.6%, compared with 19.2% for the first quarter of 2018, primarily as a result of deflation in the selling prices of lumber and lumber sheet goods.
  • Depreciation expense, including the portion reported within cost of sales, increased to $12.4 million, compared to $12.0 million in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Merger and integration costs increased to $2.8 million, consisting primarily of system integration costs and non-cash charges related to the to the write-down of certain long-lived assets, compared to $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Amortization expense increased to $4.3 million, compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2018 primarily due to amortization of intangible assets acquired in the Barefoot and Company, Locust Lumber and Shone Lumber acquisitions.
  • Interest expense was $6.0 million in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively.
  • Other income, net, increased to $2.9 million, which was derived primarily from state and local tax incentives, interest income and customer service charges, compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2018. This increase resulted primarily from an increase in interest income.
  • Net income increased to $20.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $15.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) increased to $25.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share (non-GAAP), compared to Adjusted net income of $19.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) increased 15.3% to $54.4 million, compared to $47.2 million in the first quarter of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin (non-GAAP), defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, expanded 90 basis points to 6.6%.
  • Cash provided by operating activities increased $54.5 million to $77.8 million, primarily due to improved profitability and the timing of vendor payments.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Total liquidity as of March 31, 2019 was approximately $459.3 million, which included cash and cash equivalents of $141.6 million and $317.7 million of borrowing availability under the Company’s asset-backed revolver.  Capital expenditures during the first quarter of 2019, net of proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and real estate, totaled $13.1 million.  These expenditures were primarily used to fund purchases of vehicles and equipment to replace aged assets and support increased sales volume, and facility, technology and automation investments to support our operations.

Acquisitions

As previously reported, on January 14, 2019 and February 8, 2019, respectively, the Company completed the acquisitions of Barefoot and Company and Locust Lumber, both in Charlotte, NC.  Together, these businesses generated approximately $105 million in 2018 net sales.  The addition of these two businesses makes BMC one of the top players in the building products and solutions space in the Charlotte market.

Stock Repurchases

On November 26, 2018, the Company announced that its board of directors authorized a $75.0 million share repurchase program.  In the first quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased 0.9 million shares at an average price of $17.07 per share.  As of May 1, 2019, the Company had approximately $55.7 million of capacity remaining under the current share repurchase authorization.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share are intended as supplemental measures of the Company’s performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP.  The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share 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 net income plus interest expense, interest income, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, merger and integration costs, non-cash stock compensation expense, acquisition costs and other items.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.
  • Adjusted net income is defined as net income plus merger and integration costs, non-cash stock compensation expense,  acquisition costs, other items and after tax effecting those items.
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share is defined as Adjusted net income divided by diluted weighted average shares.

Company management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation and for budgeting and planning purposes.  Adjusted EBITDA is used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and the board of directors.  The Company believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share provides additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other distribution and retail companies, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.  However, the Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  Company management does not consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share in isolation or as alternatives to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.  The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements.  Some of these limitations are: (i) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin do not reflect interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on debt; (iii) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin do not reflect income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay taxes; (iv) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (v) although depreciation and amortization charges are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements and (vi) Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share do not consider the potentially dilutive impact of issuing non-cash stock-based compensation.  In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share in conjunction with GAAP results.  Readers should review the reconciliations of net income to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income below, and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.
