BlueLinx Announces Preliminary Fourth-Quarter And Full Year Results

Planned Rights Offering

The Company's board of directors has approved a plan to commence a rights offering of common stock to its stockholders, which the Company expects will produce gross proceeds of approximately $40 million. The Company expects to utilize the proceeds of the transactions to repay indebtedness under its U.S. credit facility. The Company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a registration statement covering the transaction, and the distribution of rights and commencement of the rights offering is expected to occur promptly following the effectiveness of that registration statement.

Cerberus ABP Investor LLC ("Cerberus"), the Company's majority stockholder, has indicated that it intends, subject to the exercise price of the rights being set at an acceptable amount, to exercise all of the rights issued to it and to subscribe for the maximum additional shares pursuant to the over-subscription privilege that it would be entitled to purchase. However, such indication is not binding, and Cerberus is not legally obligated to do so.

Fourth-Quarter Conference Call

BlueLinx will report financial results for the fourth quarter before the market opens on February 13, 2013, and host a conference call at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on that day. Details about the conference call will be provided approximately two weeks prior to the call.

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, economic, competitive, governmental and technological factors outside of BlueLinx' control that may cause its business, strategy or actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties may include, among other things: changes in the supply and/or demand for products that it distributes, especially as a result of conditions in the residential housing market; general economic and business conditions in the United States; the activities of competitors; changes in significant operating expenses; changes in the availability of capital, including the availability of residential mortgages; the ability to identify acquisition opportunities and effectively and cost-efficiently integrate acquisitions; adverse weather patterns or conditions; acts of war or terrorist activities; variations in the performance of the financial markets; and other factors described in the "Risk Factors" section in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and in its periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.
