Beacon Roofing Supply Reports Fourth Quarter And Annual 2013 Results

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:BECN) announced results today for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 (“fiscal 2013”).

Paul Isabella, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We experienced a solid increase in organic demand this quarter, which when combined with our acquisitions drove strong top line growth of over 14%. We also completed the opening of seven new branches this quarter, taking us to the total of 10 that we had targeted for 2013. Plus, we are on track to open another 15-20 additional new branches in 2014. Top line growth is one of the cornerstones of our strategy and is very much on track. We continued to experience a challenging pricing environment which drove down our gross margins from the prior year. We were able to mitigate some of this negative impact through cost control and leverage of our operating expenses which were down 80 basis points over the prior year. As we move forward into 2014 our focus will continue to be on growing the top line while improving our gross margins and continuing to leverage our operating expenses.”

Fourth Quarter

Total sales increased 14.3% to $683.5 million in 2013 from $598.1 million in 2012. Existing market (organic) sales, which exclude branches acquired after the beginning of last year’s fourth quarter, increased 7.6% (6.0% based on the same number of business days). In existing markets, residential roofing product sales increased 6.5%, non-residential roofing product sales increased 10.1%, and complementary product sales increased 5.0%.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $27.4 million compared to $27.9 million in 2012. Fourth quarter diluted net income per share was $0.55 compared to $0.58 in 2012. Net income for the quarter was unfavorably impacted by lower gross margins as a result of the continued impact of product cost increases that have not been consistently passed through to customers and a higher mix of non-residential roofing products. This was partially offset by continued cost control and leverage of operating expenses across a higher volume base.
