Builders FirstSource Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

DALLAS, July 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Builders FirstSource, Inc. (Nasdaq:BLDR), a leading supplier and manufacturer of structural and related building products for residential new construction in the United States, today reported its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Highlights include the following (see financial schedules for more information, including non-GAAP reconciliations):

  • Second quarter 2013 sales increased 46.4 percent to $398.1 million compared to the second quarter of 2012.
  • Operating income was $13.2 million, up over $14 million when compared to an operating loss of ($1.4) million for the second quarter of 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $16.7 million, a $14.6 million improvement compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million for the second quarter of 2012.
  • The company completed a $350 million senior secured notes offering in May 2013, lowering its annual cash interest by approximately $16 million on a go-forward basis.
  • The company also entered into a new $175 million revolving credit facility providing incremental liquidity for the continuing housing market recovery.
  • As a result of the refinancing, the company improved liquidity by approximately $67 million. Total liquidity as of June 30, 2013 was $170.3 million.

Floyd Sherman, Builders FirstSource Chief Executive Officer stated, "I am once again very pleased to report another quarter of improving financial performance. We ended the second quarter with almost $400 million in sales and improved our Adjusted EBITDA by over $14 million on a year-over-year basis, and our second quarter sales grew 46.4 percent compared to the second quarter of 2012. Over the same time period, actual single-family housing starts in the South Region increased 14.5 percent, and single-family units under construction increased 27.4 percent."

Mr. Sherman added, "Lumber and lumber sheet good prices were, on average, 21.5 percent higher during the second quarter of 2013 as compared to those in the same quarter last year, though prices did fall approximately 30 percent during the quarter. Falling prices in the back half of the quarter relieved some of the gross margin pressure we had been experiencing from commodity inflation, and we were able to improve our gross margin by 100 basis points for the current quarter due to both improved pricing and higher sales volumes."

Commenting on the current quarter results, Chad Crow, Builders FirstSource Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer added, "Our efficient cost structure is leveraging extremely well against increased sales. For the current quarter, our selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to 17.3 percent of sales as compared to 20.2 percent for the second quarter of 2012." Mr. Crow continued, stating, "Our recent refinancing transaction provides a tremendous boost to our goal of returning to positive net income. For the second quarter of 2013, our interest expense included refinancing costs of approximately $48.4 million. Absent these refinancing costs, we were slightly positive net income for the second quarter. As a result of our new capital structure, our annual cash interest going forward will be approximately $28 million, assuming nothing is drawn on our revolver."

Second Quarter 2013 Results Compared to Second Quarter 2012

(See accompanying financial schedules for full financial details and reconciliations of Non-GAAP financial measures to their GAAP equivalents.)

  • Sales were $398.1 million compared to $271.9 million, an increase of $126.2 million or 46.4 percent. We estimate sales increased 28.9 percent due to increased volume and 17.5 percent due to price.
  • Gross margin percentage was 20.7 percent, up from 19.7 percent. Our gross margin increased 0.6 percentage points due to increased sales volume, with the remaining 0.4 percentage points coming from price and sales mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased $14.1 million, or 25.6 percent. As a percentage of sales, SG&A expense decreased to 17.3 percent compared to 20.2 percent. Our salaries and benefits expense, excluding stock compensation expense, was $44.0 million, or 11.0 percent of sales, compared to $34.0 million, or 12.5 percent of sales. Delivery expense increased $2.0 million and other general administrative expense increased $1.4 million, both a result of increased sales volume.
  • Interest expense was $61.1 million, an increase of $50.6 million. The increase relates primarily to our recent refinancing transaction and includes $6.8 million of unamortized debt discount and $2.1 million of debt issuance cost write-offs in the current quarter, as well as a $39.5 million prepayment premium related to the early termination of our term loan.
  • We recorded $0.4 million of income tax expense compared to $0.1 million. We recorded an after-tax, non-cash valuation allowance of $17.0 million and $4.3 million in the second quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively, related to our net deferred tax assets. Absent the valuation allowance, the effective tax rate would have been 34.6 percent and 34.9 percent in the second quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively. As of June 30, 2013, our gross federal income tax net operating loss available for carry-forward was approximately $295 million.
  • Loss from continuing operations was $48.3 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, compared to $12.0 million, or $0.13 loss per diluted share. Excluding the refinancing costs, the fair value adjustment for stock warrants and the tax valuation allowance, our income from continuing operations was $0.5 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the current year quarter. Excluding the fair value adjustment for stock warrants and the tax valuation allowance, our loss from continuing operations was $7.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. See reconciliation attached.
  • Net loss was $48.2 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, compared to $12.1 million, or $0.13 loss per diluted share.
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 96.3 million compared to 95.4 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $16.7 million compared to $2.1 million. See reconciliation attached.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

  • In May 2013, we completed a Rule 144A offering of $350 million aggregate principal amount of 7.625% senior secured notes due 2021. At the same time, we entered into a new 5-year $175 million revolving credit facility led by SunTrust Bank. We used the proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, to redeem our 2016 notes, pay off our outstanding term loan, including the prepayment premium, and to pay fees and expenses related to the transaction.
  • Total liquidity at June 30, 2013 was approximately $170 million, which included $25.5 million in available cash and $162.3 million of borrowing availability under our new revolver, reduced by a $17.5 million minimum excess availability requirement in our revolver.
  • Cash used for the second quarter of 2013 was $92.2 million. Of the $92.2 million, $53.7 million was cash paid for refinancing costs, $27.4 million was due to working capital build during the quarter and $14.7 million was net cash used to retire long-term debt. Cash used for the second quarter of 2012 was $24.5 million, with $15.4 million related to working capital build.
  • Capital expenditures were $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $2.2 million for the same quarter of 2012.

Outlook

Concluding, Mr. Sherman said, "As the recovery in the housing market continues, we believe our year-over-year sales growth for the second half of 2013 will be driven by the combination of market share gains and increases in overall customer demand. We will maintain our focus on improving our gross margins and further leveraging our operating cost structure."
