Builders FirstSource, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLDR) today reported its results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2019.

“The execution of our strategic priorities is off to a strong start in 2019. We continued to invest in our industry leading manufacturing capacity, providing customers with value-added solutions to fulfill their most important homebuilding needs. Additionally, our operational efficiency initiatives are producing tangible results through a more agile and efficient operating platform. I am extremely pleased with our team’s outperformance and solid earnings growth in a challenging quarter,” said CEO Chad Crow.

“These investments, combined with the strength of our platform, generated sales volume growth of 6.8 percent, led by double-digit growth in our value-added product categories. Adjusted EBITDA grew by 22 percent, as our team successfully managed lower commodity prices and generated growth across our diverse customer end markets,” added CFO Peter Jackson.

  • Net sales for the quarter were lower by 4.1 percent
    • Commodity deflation decreased sales by 9.3 percent
    • One less sales day in the first quarter of 2019 reduced sales by 1.6 percent
    • Estimated sales volume per day grew by 6.8 percent, led by 10.0 percent volume growth in the value-added product categories
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin increased by 130 basis points
  • Adjusted Net Income increased by 44 percent

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

First Quarter 2019 Compared to First Quarter 2018:

Net Sales

  • Net sales for the first quarter ending March 31, 2019 were $1.6 billion, a 4.1 percent decrease compared to a year ago. Lumber and lumber sheet goods sales were down 19.6 percent primarily as a result of the deflation in commodity prices as compared to the same period a year ago. We achieved increased sales in our remaining core product categories largely due to higher sales volume.
  • Net sales per day declined by 2.5 percent primarily due to commodity deflation, which depressed sales by 9.3 percent. However, including the impact of commodity deflation, value-added product sales per day grew by 8.8 percent, including sales growth of 8.1 percent in the Windows, Doors, and Millwork category and 9.6 percent in Manufactured Products.
  • Estimated sales volume per day grew by 6.8 percent as demand grew across our three customer end markets. Single-family grew by 7.5 percent, repair and remodel / other by 5.2 percent and multi-family by 4.1 percent.

Gross Margin

  • Gross margin was $442.0 million, an increase of $30.9 million, or 7.5 percent, over the prior year. Gross margin percentage was 27.1 percent, an expansion of approximately 290 basis points compared to the prior year period. The margin percentage increase was attributable to the decline in the cost of commodities relative to our customer pricing commitments as well as continued pricing discipline. Additionally, growth in the value-added product categories resulted in an improved mix versus the prior year period.
  • Rapid commodity inflation or deflation can cause short-term gross margin percentage fluctuations, whereas higher or lower sustained commodity prices will increase or decrease, respectively, the Company’s net sales, gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA dollars.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

  • SG&A in the first quarter of 2019 was $370.1 million, an increase of approximately $11.2 million primarily due to increases in variable compensation related to increased profitability as well as an increase in insurance costs.
  • As a percentage of sales, SG&A increased by 160 basis points to 22.7 percent mainly as a result of the decreased net sales due to commodity deflation as well as the factors described above.

Interest Expense

  • Interest expense decreased by $1.8 million to $24.9 million compared to the same period last year. The year over year reduction is largely due to the repurchases of the 2024 notes executed in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2019. The transactions also resulted in a gain on debt extinguishment in the amount of $0.7 million which lowered interest expense.

Income Tax Expense

  • Income tax expense in the first quarter of 2019 was $11.3 million or an effective tax rate of approximately 24.0 percent. In the same period the prior year, income tax expense was $2.2 million primarily due to the effect of stock compensation windfall benefits.

Adjusted Net Income

  • Net income was $35.7 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared to $23.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago.
  • Adjusted net income was $39.8 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared to $27.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2018. The increase of $12.2 million, or 44.2 percent, was primarily driven by increased sales volume, improved profitability and lower interest expense.

Adjusted EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA grew $18.3 million to $100.9 million, an increase of 22.2 percent. The increase was largely driven by the increase in sales volume, particularly in the value-added product categories, combined with the increased gross margin percentage. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA improved to 6.2 percent of sales in the first quarter from 4.9 percent in the same period a year ago.

Capital Structure, Leverage, and Liquidity Information:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, on a trailing twelve-month basis, was $519.9 million and net debt was $1,582.4 million as of March 31, 2019. The leverage ratio decreased from 4.6x net debt / Adjusted EBITDA at the end of the first quarter of 2018 to 3.0x as of March 31, 2019, a reduction of 1.6x and in line with the Company’s balance sheet management target of between 2.5x and 3.5x. 
  • Due to seasonal working capital needs, net cash used in operations and investing was $14.7 million. We expect to generate $190-220 million in cash from operations and investing in 2019, in-line with the Company's full year cash flow guidance.
  • Liquidity as of March 31, 2019 was $585.9 million, consisting of net borrowing availability under the revolving credit facility and cash on hand.

Please refer to the accompanying financial schedules for more information.

Outlook

“Our team demonstrated the breadth, diversity and strength of our platform in a challenging first quarter. The fundamentals of demand for housing remain intact as we move into the spring sales season. Although commodity prices will be a headwind compared to last year, our fifteen thousand team members are focused on above market growth and exceptional service to our customers across our national footprint. This includes executing on our strategic initiatives in value-added products and our operational excellence programs. I want to thank our team members who enabled us to deliver value to our customers and excellent financial results to our shareholders,” concluded Mr. Crow.
