DENVER--()--Summit Materials, Inc. (NYSE: SUM, “Summit” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated construction materials company, today announced results for the first quarter 2017.

For the three months ended April 1, 2017, the Company reported a basic loss per share of ($0.50) on a net loss of ($52.4) million, compared to a basic loss per share of ($0.42) on a net loss of ($21.1) million in the prior year period. On an adjusted basis, Summit reported a diluted loss per share of ($0.50) on a net loss of ($54.8) million, versus a diluted loss per share of ($0.42) on a net loss of ($42.5) million in the prior year period.

“Our business performed ahead of expectations during the first quarter, as organic growth in materials sales volumes and average selling prices contributed to strong year-over-year increases in gross margins and Adjusted EBITDA,” stated Tom Hill, CEO of Summit Materials. “Demand within our core early-cycle residential and commercial construction markets continues to accelerate, while a combination of federal and state level funding for critical infrastructure projects remains a significant opportunity for us, particularly in Texas where a combination of FAST Act, Proposition 1 and Proposition 7 funding combine to support robust multi-year investment in public infrastructure.”

“We forecast positive organic materials volume and price growth for the full-year 2017,” continued Hill. “Within our aggregates businesses, Utah, Virginia and the Carolinas are poised for another strong year, while our businesses in Austin and Vancouver have rebounded from prior year levels, with both regions reporting solid organic volume growth in the first quarter. As expected, our Cement Segment has continued to benefit from a combination of steady demand for product within our Mississippi River corridor markets and sustained growth in average selling prices,” continued Hill. “On an organic basis, sales volumes and average selling prices for cement increased 17.6% and 6.3%, respectively, in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period.”

“On a year-to-date basis, we have completed six acquisitions, including four transactions that have closed since February,” continued Hill. “Together, these four acquisitions bring another 90 million tons of permitted aggregates reserves into our portfolio, while expanding our vertically-integrated aggregates and products businesses in Northeast Houston, South Carolina, Missouri and Vancouver. Our acquisition pipeline remains very active, with more than 20 transactions currently under review, including four potential acquisitions that are in late-stage diligence.”

“Given contributions from recently completed acquisitions, together with expectations for continued organic growth within our business, we have increased our full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance,” continued Hill. “For the full-year 2017, we project total Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $430 million to $445 million, up from the prior range of $410 million to $425 million. On a year-to-date basis, we have invested $180 million across six transactions, positioning us to meet or possibly exceed our full-year acquired EBITDA target of $40 million to $60 million per year. We are pleased with our strong start to the year and look forward to building on this momentum as we continue to create value for our shareholders.”

“Exiting the first quarter, we had more than $370 million in cash and availability under our revolving credit facility,” stated Brian Harris, CFO of Summit Materials. “Given continued growth in trailing twelve-month free cash flow, together with available cash and liquidity, we are well positioned to support the ongoing growth of our business.”

“Net leverage was 3.7x as of April 1, 2017, versus 4.5x in the prior year period and down from 3.9x at year-end 2016,” continued Harris. “Looking ahead, we continue to target a further reduction in net leverage to approximately 3.0x by year-end 2017, assuming the mid-point of our upwardly revised 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance.”

First Quarter 2017 | Financial Performance

Net revenue increased by 24.5% to $259.0 million in the first quarter 2017, versus $208.0 in the prior year period. The improvement in net revenue was primarily attributable to acquisition related sales volumes, higher organic sales volumes of aggregates, cement and asphalt, together with higher organic sales prices on aggregates and cement.

Gross profit increased 29.3% to $66.7 million in the first quarter 2017, versus $51.6 million in the prior year period. Gross profit generated from the Company’s aggregates and cement assets represented 50% of total gross profit in the first quarter 2017, consistent with the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 62% year-over-year to $13.6 million, versus $8.4 million in the prior year period, in what is typically the seasonally slowest quarter of the year.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased 28.9% to $58.5 million, versus $45.4 million in the prior year period. Increased labor expense was mainly related to increased salaries and benefits resulting from completed acquisitions, coupled with higher employee incentive compensation.

The Company reported an adjusted diluted net loss of ($0.50) per diluted share in the first quarter 2017, using 110.2 million weighted-average total shares. The shares of Class A common stock are issued by Summit Materials, Inc., and as such the earnings and equity interests of non-controlling interests, including LP units, are not included in basic earnings per share. Summit believes adjusted diluted net loss and Adjusted EPS are more representative of earnings performance, as these measures exclude the non-operating impact to earnings per share of any potential exchange of LP units for Class A common stock in any given quarter.

West Segment: Adjusted EBITDA increased by 18.2% to $15.7 million in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 11.9% in the first quarter 2017, versus 11.7% in the prior year period. Improved organic growth in average selling prices for aggregates, strong organic volume growth in asphalt and acquisition-related EBITDA contributions were partially offset by a decline in organic aggregates and ready-mix volumes, along with a slight organic decline in organic ready-mix average selling prices.

East Segment: Adjusted EBITDA increased by 37.0% to $4.3 million in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin was down slightly to 5.2% in the first quarter 2017, versus 5.3% in the prior year period. Improved organic growth in average selling prices for aggregates, strong organic volume growth in aggregates and asphalt and acquisition-related EBITDA contributions were partially offset by a slight organic decline in ready-mix concrete volumes.

Cement Segment: Adjusted EBITDA increased to $2.7 million in the first quarter 2017, versus $1.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 6.1% in the first quarter 2017, up from 2.9% in the prior year period. A year-over-year increase in average selling prices, organic sales volumes, improved production efficiencies and cost reductions all contributed to improved results.

First Quarter 2017 | Results by Line of Business

Aggregates Business: Aggregates net revenues increased by 23.5% to $61.6 million the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Aggregates gross profit as a percentage of aggregates net revenues increased 70 basis points to 43.6% in the first quarter 2017, versus 42.9% in the prior year period. Organic aggregates sales volumes and average selling prices increased 0.6% and 2.9%, respectively, in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Improved market conditions in the Company’s Austin, North Texas and Vancouver markets, together with continued strength in the Utah markets, contributed to the year-over-year improvement in organic volumes.

Cement Business: Cement segment net revenues increased 29.0% to $43.8 million in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Cement gross profit as a percentage of cement segment net revenues was 14.3% in the first quarter 2017, 150 basis points higher than in the prior year period. Organic sales volumes and average selling prices of cement increased 17.6% and 6.3%, respectively, when compared to the prior year period. Favorable weather conditions and new customer acquisitions contributed to strong organic demand in the first quarter, while continued organic growth in sales prices was attributable to previously announced price increases.

Products Business: Net revenues increased 21.9% to $124.0 million in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Products gross margin as a percentage of net revenues declined 190 basis points to 21.2% in the first quarter 2017, when compared to the prior year period. Organic sales volumes of asphalt and ready-mix concrete increased 64.5% and decreased 11.4%, respectively, when compared to the prior year period. Strong paving activity in the Austin market contributed to increased organic volume growth in asphalt, while lower organic sales volumes of ready-mix concrete was attributable to residential softness in the Houston market.

Acquisition Program Update

The Company has completed six acquisitions on a year-to-date basis, including four acquisitions that have closed since February 2017. In total, these four acquisitions bring to Summit approximately 90 million tons of permitted aggregates reserves, four quarries, three ready-mix concrete plants, one asphalt plant and related paving operations. The four acquisitions represent compelling bolt-on opportunities to existing platform businesses in Texas, South Carolina, Missouri and British Columbia. The total combined acquisition spend on the four acquisitions was approximately $70 million. Together with the previously announced acquisitions of Everist Materials and Razorback Concrete, the combined year-to-date acquisition spend is approximately $180 million.

Hanna’s Bend Aggregate (Texas). Hanna’s Bend is a sand and gravel supplier with significant permitted reserves in northeast Houston. Hanna’s Bend is an ideal fit with Summit’s existing aggregates operations in the Houston market. The Company estimates that Hanna’s Bend’s end-market exposure is largely weighted toward non-residential and residential construction markets.

Carolina Sand (South Carolina). Carolina Sand is a construction and specialty sand supplier that enhances Summit’s existing exposure to the coastal South Carolina market and brings attractive synergy opportunities to the Company’s business in that region. The Company estimates that Carolina Sand’s end-market exposure is entirely weighted toward the private markets, with an emphasis on non-residential construction.

Sandidge Concrete (Missouri). Sandidge is a ready-mix concrete business in southern Missouri that represents an attractive bolt-on acquisition to our existing Con-Agg platform. The Company estimates that Sandidge’s end market exposure is weighted mainly toward private markets with some public market exposure.

Winvan Paving (British Columbia). Vancouver-based Winvan is an asphalt and paving company that represents an attractive bolt-on acquisition to our aggregates business in British Columbia and is consistent with our vertically integrated materials growth strategy. The Company estimates that Winvan’s end-market exposure is weighted equally between private and public markets.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At April 1, 2017, the Company had cash on hand of $156.1 million and borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility of $215.4 million. The borrowing capacity on the revolving credit facility is net of $19.6 million of outstanding letters of credit, and is fully available to the Company within the terms and covenant requirements of its credit agreement. As of April 1, 2017, the Company had $1.5 billion in debt outstanding. The Company’s debt instruments are long-dated. The Company’s $235.0 million revolving credit facility has a maturity of March 2020, while the $250 million 8.5% senior unsecured notes and the $650 million 6.125% senior unsecured notes have maturities of April 2022 and July 2023, respectively. The Company also has a $639 million senior secured term loan maturing July 2022. The Company’s weighted average estimated cost of debt was 5.6% as of March 2017.

2017 Financial Guidance & Outlook

The Company is raising its full-year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance from a range of $410.0 million to $425.0 million to a range of $430 million to $445 million. The upwardly revised Adjusted EBITDA outlook assumes organic improvement, coupled with the partial-year impact of the six acquisitions announced since the beginning of 2017. No additional potential acquisitions are included within the Company’s full-year 2017 Adjusted EBITDA guidance.

Including the impact of six acquisitions completed on a year-to-date basis, the Company is raising its gross capital expenditure guidance by $5 million to a range of $140 million to $160 million for the full-year 2017. Revised capital expenditure guidance includes several maintenance and profit-improvement projects. Longer-term, the Company expects gross capital expenditures to approximate 7-8% of net revenue per annum.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulates the use of “non-GAAP financial measures,” such as Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, gross profit, free cash flow and net leverage which are derived on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). We have provided these measures because, among other things, we believe that they provide investors with additional information to measure our performance, evaluate our ability to service our debt and evaluate certain flexibility under our restrictive covenants. Our adjusted net income, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and gross profit may vary from the use of such terms by others and should not be considered as alternatives to or more important than net income (loss), operating income (loss), revenue or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP as measures of operating performance or to cash flows as measures of liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and other non-GAAP measures have important limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA are that these measures do not reflect: (i) our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (ii) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (iii) interest expense or cash requirements necessary to service interest and principal payments on our debt; and (iv) income tax payments we are required to make. Because of these limitations, we rely primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and use Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and other non-GAAP measures on a supplemental basis.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, gross profit, adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted EPS and free cash flow reflect additional ways of viewing aspects of our business that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to U.S. GAAP financial measures included in the tables attached to this press release, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. We strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.

Reconciliations of the non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included in the attached tables. Because GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis are not accessible, and reconciling information is not available without unreasonable effort, we have not provided reconciliations for forward-looking non-GAAP measures. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts, and you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “intends,” “trends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “projects” or “anticipates” or similar expressions that concern our strategy, plans, expectations or intentions. Any and all statements made relating to the expectations for our anticipated benefits from recent acquisitions, the macroeconomic outlook for our markets, potential acquisition activity, our estimated and projected earnings, margins, costs, expenditures, cash flows, sales volumes and financial results are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that may change at any time, and, therefore, our actual results may differ materially from those expected. We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions. While we believe that our assumptions are reasonable, it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and, of course, it is impossible to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results.

In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that the results or conditions described in such statements or our objectives and plans will be achieved. Important factors could affect our results and could cause results to differ materially from those expressed in our forward-looking statements, including but not limited to the factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016. Such factors may be updated from time to time in our periodic filings with the SEC, which are accessible on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.

We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.
