Stock Building Supply Announces 2015 Second Quarter Results

RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stock Building Supply Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:STCK) (the "Company"), a diversified lumber and building materials distributor and solutions provider that sells primarily to new construction and remodeling contractors, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • Net sales of $350.1 million, up 1.6%, compared to $344.6 million in the prior year period
  • Gross profit of $86.4 million, up 5.1%, compared to $82.2 million in the prior year period
  • Net income of $2.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, including $3.3 million of merger-related costs, compared to net income of $5.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share in the prior year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $14.3 million, up 10.8%, compared to $12.9 million in the prior year period
  • Adjusted income from continuing operations of $6.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $5.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the prior year period
  • Cash provided by operating activities of $8.6 million, compared to cash used in operating activities of $20.2 million in the prior year period

Commenting on the Company's second quarter 2015 results, Jeff Rea, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Despite significant commodity deflation and unusually wet weather conditions in several key markets during the quarter, our operating teams achieved net sales volume growth and gross profit expansion of approximately 5% compared to the second quarter of 2014. Importantly, we continued to execute on our profitable growth strategy by driving higher growth rates in our value-added structural components and millwork product groups, which helped continue the upward trend in our gross margin percentage and partially offset the negative impact of deflation in lumber and lumber sheet goods. Additionally, we continued to make investments in our eBusiness capabilities that we believe will provide differentiated customer service and help to accelerate operating profit as the housing market recovery progresses."

Jim Major, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "During the second quarter, we remained focused on executing upon our strategic operational and technology investments while sustaining profitable growth improvement. Gross margin for the quarter improved 80 basis points to 24.7%, compared to the prior year period, and Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter grew nearly 11%, as we continued to convert incremental sales dollars to Adjusted EBITDA at a healthy rate. These margin improvements combined with solid working capital management resulted in substantially improved cash flow from operations as compared to the second quarter of last year."

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results Compared to Prior Year Period

Net sales for the second quarter of 2015 totaled $350.1 million, up $5.5 million, or 1.6%, compared to $344.6 million in the second quarter of 2014. The Company estimates net sales increased approximately 5.0% related to increased volume but was offset by reduced selling prices on commodity products.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2015 was $86.4 million, up $4.2 million, or 5.1%, compared to $82.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily as a result of increased sales volume. The gross margin percentage for the second quarter of 2015 increased 80 basis points to 24.7%, compared to 23.9% in the second quarter of 2014, largely as a result of improved gross margins on sales of structural components and a higher percentage of total net sales being derived from non-commodity products.

Selling, general and administrative expenses during the second quarter of 2015 were $74.7 million, up $3.6 million, or 5.0%, from $71.1 million in the second quarter of 2014. The increase was primarily related to higher salary, wage and incentive compensation costs to serve higher sales volume, associate health care cost inflation and certain expenses related to previously closed store locations.

Operating income in the second quarter of 2015 was $5.4 million, compared to operating income of $8.9 million in the second quarter of 2014. During the second quarter of 2015, the Company incurred approximately $3.3 million of costs related to the previously announced merger ("the Merger") with Building Materials Holding Corporation ("BMC").

Net income during the quarter totaled $2.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2015 was $6.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to adjusted income from continuing operations of $5.8 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 totaled $14.3 million, up $1.4 million, compared to $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2014. A reconciliation of non-GAAP (Adjusted) financial measures to comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures" section of this press release.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Total liquidity as of June 30, 2015 was approximately $117.4 million, which includes cash and cash equivalents of $6.9 million and $110.5 million of borrowing availability under our existing revolver.

Capital expenditures during the second quarter of 2015 totaled $3.5 million, primarily to fund purchases of vehicles and equipment to support increased sales volume and replace aged assets, and facility and technology investments to support our operations. In addition, the Company acquired approximately $4.2 million of assets, primarily vehicles, under capital lease arrangements.

Merger with BMC

On June 3, 2015, the Company announced it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with BMC (the "Merger Agreement"). On June 25, 2015, the Company received notification that early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvement Act of 1976, as amended ("HSR"), for the Merger had been granted by the United States Federal Trade Commission. The early termination of the waiting period under HSR satisfied one of the conditions to the closing of the Merger. The Merger, which remains subject to other closing conditions (including approval by both the Company and BMC shareholders), is on track to close in the fourth quarter of 2015.

For information regarding the Merger Agreement, please refer to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 5, 2015.

Acquisition of Guilford Builders Supply

On June 1, 2015, the Company acquired certain assets and assumed certain liabilities of Guilford Builders Supply ("GBS"). GBS is a provider of building materials and custom millwork that operates two locations in Greensboro, North Carolina and generated net sales of approximately $6.2 million in 2014.

Outlook

"During the first half of 2015, the U.S. housing market continued its measured pace of recovery supported by a healthy national economy, sustained employment growth, improved household formation rates and strengthened levels of both consumer and builder confidence," stated Mr. Rea. "Given this backdrop, we feel the Company is very well positioned for further growth and earnings expansion through the housing recovery. Our teams continue to work diligently to enhance and differentiate our customer service, profitability and growth capabilities and we are now preparing to introduce new online customer service and sales tools as an extension to our eBusiness suite. We believe this integrated and extensive eBusiness capability, which we expect to roll out over the next six to twelve months, will allow for a significantly enhanced customer experience while providing for increased employee productivity and growth capacity for all our locations."

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(unaudited)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from continuing operations plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, impairment of assets held for sale, merger-related costs, public offering transaction-related costs, restructuring expense, non-cash stock compensation expense, severance and other items related to store closures and other items. Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations is defined as income from continuing operations plus merger-related costs, restructuring expense, non-cash stock compensation expense, severance and other items related to store closures and other items, and after tax effecting those items. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations are intended as supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and operating results. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA to compare our performance to that of prior periods 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 our board of directors. We believe that the use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other distribution and retail companies, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Our management does not consider Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations in isolation or as alternatives to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations 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 and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (ii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt; (iii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay our taxes; (iv) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations 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 and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements and (vi) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations 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 and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations in conjunction with GAAP results. You should review the reconciliations of income (loss) from continuing operations to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted income (loss) from continuing operations below, and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
