BuildDirect Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

General News
BuildDirect Logo - Retail Lumber Yard Technologies Inc. (“BuildDirect” or the “Company”) a growing omnichannel building material retailer, today announced its financial results for the Third Quarter 2022 (“Q3 2022”).

“I am pleased to report that BuildDirect continues to grow its Pro Customer base, increasing Pro revenue 5.6% quarter over quarter, and maintaining its positive adjusted EBITDA” said Shawn Wilson, CEO of BuildDirect. “Our strategic execution is delivering value with revenues reaching $22 million, of which 88.2% are Pro-based. We also recorded our third consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA, largely due to our push to reallocate resources to Pro customers and to drive acquisition synergies. Looking forward to the fourth quarter of 2022, we will continue to hone our fixed costs and marketing strategies to pursue continued improvement of the Company’s overall profitability and growth prospects and leverage our omnichannel business to service growing industry segments and pursue  product opportunities for our professional contractor customers.”

“In Q3 2022 the Company made cost reductions which are expected to result in approximately US $2 million in annualized operating expense savings. The cost reductions were primarily focused within the BuildDirect ecommerce business as the Company continues to shift its focus to the Pro market segment. The cost reductions are not expected to significantly impact our Pro market segment and will improve overall profitability” said Matt Alexander, Interim-CFO of BuildDirect.
