Summit Materials, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2019 Results

Company Release - 5/8/2019 6:15 AM ET

- Net Revenue Growth of 5.5% in First Quarter 2019

- Organic aggregates volumes increased 6.6%

- Organic aggregates price increased 6.3%

- Reaffirmed 2019 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Range For The Full-Year 2019 at $430 - $470 million

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Summit Materials, Inc. (NYSE: SUM, “Summit” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated construction materials company, today announced results for the first quarter 2019.

For the three months ended March 30, 2019, the Company reported net loss attributable to Summit Inc. of $(68.8) million, or $(0.62) per basic share, compared to net loss attributable to Summit Inc. of $(53.7) million, or $(0.49) per basic share in the comparable prior year period. Summit reported adjusted diluted net loss of $(56.9) million, or $(0.49) per adjusted diluted share as compared to adjusted diluted net loss of $(62.9) million, or $(0.55) per adjusted diluted share in the prior year period.

Summit's net revenue increased 5.5% in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the comparable 2018 period, while net income and earnings per share decreased in 2019 as compared to the comparable 2018 period, primarily due to the $14.6 million loss on debt financing to redeem the 8.5% senior notes in March 2019. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $6.6 million in 2019 as compared to $5.5 million in 2018, as increases in aggregates and asphalt volumes and pricing were achieved. However, Summit noted those increases were offset by higher costs of revenue in its cement segment due to lower production levels during the quarter. Tom Hill, CEO of Summit Materials, stated, "We were very pleased to see our organic average sales prices for aggregates increased by 6.3% in the first quarter as compared to a year ago. We continue to believe end market fundamentals remain intact for the construction industry going into 2019." Hill commented, "Cement sales volumes were up slightly in the first quarter of 2019 as compared to 2018 despite challenging weather conditions. However, an extended annual maintenance shutdown and record flooding on the Mississippi River that has continued into the second quarter has negatively impacted our Cement business."

Summit reaffirmed its 2019 full year Adjusted EBITDA guidance. Hill continued, "We are pleased to confirm our previously announced Adjusted EBITDA guidance of approximately $430 million to $470 million for 2019."

“Underlying demand conditions in most of our markets remain favorable and are expected to remain so during the remainder of 2019,” continued Hill. In Summit's public markets, state transportation funding measures in Texas, coupled with steady increases in federal subsidies, are contributing to increased lettings activity. Single family housing starts and permits remain well below peak levels in Summit's major markets.

As previously announced, in February 2019 Summit extended and amended its revolving credit facility which now has maximum availability of $345 million and matures in 2024. Further, in March 2019, Summit retired $250 million of 8.5% senior notes due 2022 by issuing $300 million of 6.5% senior notes due in 2027. Brian Harris, CFO of Summit Materials, stated, “We were very pleased with both of those transactions, which increased our overall liquidity position and lowers our cash interest outlays in the future. Further, we are pleased to reaffirm our guidance for 2019 capital expenditures of approximately $160 million to $175 million." As expected, given the seasonal decrease in cash balances, Summit's leverage ratio increased over year-end levels. However, Summit continues to expect increased levels of cash flow generated from operations less capital expenditures in 2019 as compared to 2018, which we expect will allow Summit to reduce its leverage ratio by the end of 2019.

First Quarter 2019| Results by Line of Business

Aggregates Business: Aggregates net revenues increased by 30.3% to $87.9 million in the first quarter 2019, when compared to the prior year period. Aggregates adjusted cash gross profit margin improved to 43.2% in the first quarter 2019, compared to 41.5% in the prior year period, as pricing gains exceeded input costs. Organic aggregates sales volumes increased 6.6% in the first quarter 2019, when compared to the prior year period. Organic average selling prices on aggregates increased 6.3% in the first quarter 2019 when compared to the prior year period due to improvements in prices within both the West and East segments during the period.

Cement Business: Cement segment net revenues declined 0.7% to $37.3 million in the first quarter 2019, when compared to the prior year period. Cement adjusted cash gross profit margin decreased to 3.1% in the first quarter, compared to 19.5% in the prior year period, as margins were impacted by lower production levels in 2019. Organic sales volume of cement increased 1.0% in the first quarter, when compared to the prior year period. Organic average selling prices on cement decreased 1.5% in the first quarter, when compared to the prior year period due to changes of the customer mix across our geographies.

Products Business: Net revenues decreased 3.2% to $151.3 million in the first quarter 2019, when compared to the prior year period. Products adjusted cash gross profit margin declined to 13.5% in the first quarter, versus 16.1% in the prior year period, reflecting a 5.7% decrease in organic sales volumes of ready-mix concrete, which adversely impacted productivity and efficiency in the first quarter of 2019. This decrease was only partially offset by an increase in the organic average selling prices of 0.4% above the prior year period. Organic sales volumes of asphalt increased 20.0% in the first quarter and organic average selling prices increased 5.0% over the same period in 2018.

First Quarter 2019 | Results By Reporting Segment

Net revenue increased by 5.5% to $306.0 million in the first quarter 2019, versus $289.9 million in the prior year period. The improvement in net revenue was primarily attributable to both organic and acquisition-related contributions in the East and West segments, offset by a decline in the Cement segment. The Company reported operating loss of $(57.7) million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $(51.5) million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.6 million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $5.5 million in the prior year period.

West Segment: The West Segment reported operating loss of $(11.6) million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $(6.1) million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $14.3 million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $16.2 million in the prior year period. The quarterly declines in West Segment operating income and Adjusted EBITDA were primarily attributable to increased labor and materials costs as well as increased depreciation and amortization from acquisitions completed in the last nine months of 2018, partially offset by increases in average selling prices on aggregates and asphalt concrete. Aggregates revenue in the first quarter increased 12.3% over the prior year period as a result of contributions from acquisitions, resulting in a 4.2% increase in organic volumes and a 4.7% increase in organic average sales prices. Ready-mix concrete revenue in the first quarter 2019 decreased 4.3% over the prior year period, primarily due to a 5.4% and 0.5% decrease in organic volumes and organic average sales prices, respectively, which were partially offset by an increase in acquisition related volumes. Asphalt revenue increased by 44.0% in the first quarter 2019 over the prior year period, resulting from a 22.8% and 1.6% increase in volumes and average sales prices, respectively.

East Segment: The East Segment reported operating loss of $(17.3) million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $(20.9) million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $3.2 million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $(3.2) million in the prior year period. The quarterly improvement in East Segment operating loss and Adjusted EBITDA was mainly attributable to increases in net revenue from our acquisition program, increases in average selling prices of aggregates, ready-mix concrete and asphalt, partially offset by increased labor as well as decreases in ready-mix volumes. Aggregates revenue increased 36.8%, primarily due to increases resulting from our acquisition program as well as a 9.1% and 7.6% increase in organic volumes and average sales prices, respectively. Ready-mix concrete revenue decreased 2.7% as a result of lower sales volumes, partially offset by an increase in organic average sales prices. Asphalt revenue increased 47.3% primarily as a result of a 50.0% increase in organic average sales prices, partially offset by a 5.9% decrease in organic volumes.

Cement Segment: The Cement Segment reported operating loss of $(12.9) million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $(2.8) million in the prior year period primarily due to lower levels of production due to extended plant shutdowns in 2019, which resulted in higher costs of revenue as less production costs were capitalized into inventory. Adjusted EBITDA declined to $(2.6) million in the first quarter 2019, compared to $3.7 million in the prior year period, as total production in the first three months of 2019 was below production levels in the first three months of 2018. The Company experienced slightly lower organic average selling prices mostly offset by a slight increase in organic sales volumes during first quarter 2019 as compared to the prior year period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 30, 2019, the Company had cash on hand of $64.8 million and borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility of $329.8 million. The borrowing capacity on the revolving credit facility is fully available to the Company within the terms and covenant requirements of its credit agreement. As of March 30, 2019, the Company had $1.9 billion in debt outstanding.

Financial Outlook

For the full-year 2019, the Company estimates its Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $430 million to $470 million. For the full-year 2019, the Company estimates its capital expenditures to be in the range of $160 million to $175 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulates the use of “non-GAAP financial measures,” such as Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, Free Cash Flow, Net Leverage and Net Debt 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 (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Further Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, Free Cash Flow, Net Leverage and Net Debt 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, Further Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Diluted EPS, Free Cash Flow, Net Leverage and Net Debt 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.
