Beacon Roofing Supply Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: BECN) announced results today for its second quarter and first half ended March 31, 2014 (“2014”) of the fiscal year ended September 30, 2014 (“Fiscal 2014”).

Paul Isabella, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: “Severe winter weather that ranked among the 10 coldest on record in many states across the upper Midwest to the Southeast had a significant impact on our results this quarter. Multiple winter storms that brought record snowfall and freezing rain delayed both residential and commercial roofing projects across our core markets. However, during this period of soft demand we utilized the strength of our balance sheet to make strategic investments in equipment and inventory to grow our business. We believe these investments, along with employee training and our greenfield expansion, will help us maximize our opportunity related to re-roof growth, which is the bulk of our core business. We are especially excited about opening our eighth new branch of the year and are planning on as many as 25 for the full year. Finally, we remained focused on our long standing culture of cost control and leveraging of our operating expenses. All these actions have us well positioned to take advantage of the traditionally high seasonal demand in the second half of the year. We believe the second half of the year volume will be strong for both our residential and commercial markets.”

Second Quarter

Total sales decreased 7.5% to $384.9 million in 2014 from $416.3 million in 2013. On an overall consolidated basis, residential roofing product sales decreased 12.1%, non-residential roofing product sales decreased 2.3%, and complementary product sales decreased 4.1%. During the second quarter, the company had no branches classified as acquired markets and as such, consolidated sales are representative of existing market sales. In addition, the second quarter of 2014 and 2013 both had the same number of business days.
