Beacon Roofing Supply Reports First Quarter 2013 Results

Stocks in this article: BECN

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BECN) announced results today for its first quarter ended December 31, 2012 (“2013”) of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013 (“fiscal 2013”).

Paul Isabella, the Company’s President & Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We began fiscal 2013 with a solid first quarter performance despite being up against a very strong quarter last year when our existing market sales were up 17%. Our total sales benefited from the positive impact of several acquisitions made since the start of last year and our gross margin continued to improve over the prior year. The trend of our complementary product sales has been encouraging, considering the more discretionary nature of those products. Towards the end of the first quarter, we took advantage of our financial capacity and flexibility to purchase key products ahead of announced industry-wide price increases scheduled mostly for February and April. We believe we are well positioned for a successful fiscal 2013 and expect to continue our steady growth. We continue aggressively to seek quality companies that fit our target acquisition profile, such as McClure-Johnston and Ford Wholesale, which we acquired in the first quarter.”

Total sales increased 4.9% to $513.7 million in 2013 from $489.9 million in 2012. Existing market (organic) sales, which exclude branches acquired after the beginning of last year’s first quarter, declined 4.6% (7.7% based on the same number of business days). In existing markets, residential and non-residential roofing product sales decreased 5.4% and 6.1%, respectively, while complementary product sales increased 2.9%. The 2013 sales performance was unfavorably affected by the comparison to last year’s very high level of re-roofing activities, including the beneficial impact from mild weather in December 2011 and strong business in several markets that experienced significant storms in 2011, and lower average residential roofing selling prices this year.
