“Our record second-quarter results exceeded our expectations and were driven by the steadfast execution of our strategy, accelerated productivity and structural cost savings across our business, coupled with a strong pipeline of construction activity,” said Dave Flitman, President and CEO of BMC. “These strong results are a testament to the determination of our associates, who remain focused on growing our business and providing outstanding customer service despite their personal sacrifice in this unprecedented environment. I couldn’t be more proud of their efforts.”
Mr. Flitman added, “Our top priority remains keeping our associates, suppliers and customers safe as the pandemic evolves. We continue to take any and all necessary steps to protect our team while simultaneously growing our value-added products, which remain in high demand from our customers.”
Mr. Flitman continued, “We are pleased that our team’s efforts enabled us to generate strong net sales growth in Millwork, Doors and Windows and our Pro Remodel and Multi-Family segments, as well as outperform the market in single-family starts which resulted in record net income, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in the quarter. We believe our solid first-half results and momentum, coupled with strong homebuyer demand, low housing inventories and record low interest rates will result in continued strength in our business in the second half of 2020. I believe we have the best talent on the field, the right business strategies, and as we remain focused on strengthening our execution, we will continue to transform our company into an operational powerhouse. I am confident that our efforts will enable our ability to sustainably outperform the market and deliver long-term shareholder value.”
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results Compared to Prior Year Period
– Net sales increased 3.5% to $979.9 million, primarily driven by growth from acquisitions of 4.3%, and 2.0% from price inflation. These increases were partially offset by a 2.2% decrease from other organic sales declines due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and a closed location of 0.6%.
– Gross profit increased 2.9% to $252.8 million. Gross profit as a percentage of sales (gross margin) was 25.8%, compared to 26.0% for the second quarter of 2019. The 20 basis point decline in gross margin was driven by a decrease in the gross margin in the lumber and lumber sheet goods and structural components product categories, which benefited from unusually high commodity price-related gross margins during the prior year period, partially offset by an increase in the percent of net sales derived from our millwork, doors and windows product category, which often generates higher gross margins relative to other products.
– Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses decreased 4.4% or $8.0 million to $173.4 million. Excluding the $4.3 million impact of an out of period correction during the three months ended June 30, 2019, SG&A expenses decreased $3.7 million. Other factors impacting SG&A expenses were an approximately $10.0 million decrease in employee wages, benefits and other employee-related costs, which was partially offset by an increase of $9.0 million related to SG&A expenses of recently acquired businesses. The remaining decrease was primarily related to lower fuel costs and a reduction in other costs. SG&A expenses as a percent of net sales declined 150 basis points to 17.7%
– Depreciation expense, including the portion reported within cost of sales, increased $2.0 million to $15.3 million, compared to $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2019.
– Merger and integration costs decreased to $0.4 million, consisting primarily of system integration costs, compared to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2019.
– Amortization expense was $5.0 million compared to $4.3 million in the second quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to the amortization of intangible assets at recently acquired businesses.
– Interest expense was $6.2 million compared to $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2019.
– Other income, net, which was derived primarily from state and local tax incentives, interest income and customer service charges, was $2.9 million compared to $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2019.
– Net income was $43.6 million, or $0.65 per diluted share for the quarter, compared to $35.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019.
– Adjusted net income(1) increased to $49.3 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to Adjusted net income(1) of $39.4 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019.
– Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $90.3 million, up 23.2% from the second quarter of 2019.
– Adjusted EBITDA margin(1), defined as Adjusted EBITDA(1) as a percentage of net sales, was a record 9.2%, up 150 basis points from the prior year period.
– Cash provided by operating activities increased $84.5 million to $136.1 million primarily due to changes in working capital.
As one of the Company’s core values, the safety of BMC’s associates and families is of the utmost importance during these challenging times. Over the course of the past several months, the Company took numerous steps to protect our associates, suppliers, customers and the community. In mid-March, the Company created a cross-function task force, which continues to meet daily to ensure that the Company is responding with the development of the necessary processes, protocols, training and communications related to our response.
The Company has implemented detailed cleaning and disinfecting processes at its facilities and is adhering to social distancing protocols. It also continues to suspend non-essential air travel and is encouraging employees to work from home when possible. To date, the Company and its customers’ businesses have generally been classified as “essential business” in most of the jurisdictions in which the Company operates.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Total liquidity as of June 30, 2020 was approximately $615.7 million, which included $253.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $362.3 million of borrowing availability under the Company’s asset-backed revolving credit facility. During the first quarter, the Company borrowed $144 million under its revolving credit facility as a precautionary measure. In June 2020, the Company repaid this amount and had no outstanding borrowings under its revolver as of June 30, 2020. In addition, the Company has no long-term debt maturities until 2024.
Capital expenditures during the second quarter of 2020, net of proceeds from the sale of property, equipment and real estate, totaled $18.3 million which was down $10.4 million from the prior year period. 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. The Company has postponed future growth-related capital projects until further notice, but is accelerating investment in safety and productivity-related capital expenditures. Cash provided by operating activities increased $84.5 million to $136.1 million primarily due to changes in working capital. The Company continues to focus on cash generation.
During the second quarter of 2020, the Company did not repurchase any shares of stock. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had approximately $54.2 million of capacity remaining under the current share repurchase authorization, which expires in November 2020.
2020 Third-Quarter Outlook
The Company estimates its 2020 third quarter net sales will be up 5% to 10% compared to the third quarter of 2019. BMC withdrew its full-year 2020 outlook on April 6, 2020, as management was unable to predict the potential negative impacts that COVID-19 could have on housing starts and the Company’s financial results over the remainder of the year.
