Beacon Roofing Supply Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BECN) announced results today for its second quarter and first half ended March 31, 2012 of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012 (“fiscal 2012”).

Paul Isabella, the Company’s President & Chief Executive Officer, stated: “The positive momentum from our first quarter continued into our second quarter and we finished with record results for the first half of fiscal 2012. Our results for the second quarter and first half significantly exceeded our expectations and most of our regions are on track for a very successful year. Once again our company-wide residential and non-residential product sales in existing markets both showed double-digit percentage increases for the quarter, while our complementary product sales were up 7%. The much warmer winter conditions this year boosted roofing and exterior remodeling activities and seemed to accelerate the recent trend of increased residential re-roofing activities. In addition, our roofing businesses continued to benefit from industry-wide price increases, which mostly occurred during the second half of last year. Our commercial business has been consistently strong since the third quarter of fiscal 2010, and our year-over-year total gross margin and operating margin continued to improve. We were able to increase our cash holdings since our 2011 year-end and we utilized $79 million of that cash to pay down our term debt in April in connection with the closing on our new credit facility. The new credit facility, along with our further improved balance sheet, should enable us to accelerate our growth and we are confident that we will add additional quality companies this year that fit our target acquisition profile. We could not be more pleased with our first half performance and, although we will be up against much tougher comparisons, we expect to have a strong second half as well.”
