Summit Materials, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results

-Y/Y Net Revenue Growth of 14.8%, Supported By Broad-Based Organic Volume Improvements

-Completed Four Materials-Based Bolt-on Acquisitions For Total Invested Capital of $75 million Since May 2018

-Reduced Midpoint of Adjusted EBITDA Guidance Range For The Full-Year 2018 By 7%

-Remain On Pace To Achieve Record Full-Year Adjusted EBITDA in 2018

DENVER--()--Summit Materials, Inc. (NYSE: SUM, “Summit” or the “Company”), a leading vertically integrated construction materials company, today announced results for the second quarter 2018.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company reported basic earnings per share of $0.32 on net income attributable to Summit Inc. of $35.5 million, compared to basic earnings per share of $0.46 on net income attributable to Summit Inc. of $50.0 million in the prior year period. On an adjusted basis, Summit reported adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.32 on adjusted diluted net income of $37.1 million, versus adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.47 on adjusted diluted net income of $53.6 million in the prior year period.

While net revenue increased 14.8% on a year-over-basis in the second quarter 2018, supported by organic volume growth in our aggregates and products lines of business, Adjusted EBITDA was flat on a year-over-year basis, given lower contributions from our cement segment and Houston operations, together with inflation in our variable costs,” stated Tom Hill, CEO of Summit Materials. “With a finite number of days remaining in the construction season, we have reduced the midpoint of our 2018 Adjusted EBITDA guidance by 7 percent.”

Organic sales volumes in our cement segment were impacted by a combination of high precipitation levels during April and May, together with competitive pressures in the markets we serve,” stated Hill. “Our Houston operations were impacted by a slower start to the construction season than had been anticipated. Looking to the second half of the year, we expect a strengthening in both our cement segment and Houston operations, given accelerating demand in our residential, low-rise commercial and public end-markets.”

The pace of cost inflation in raw materials, freight, labor and fuel exceeded our expectations in the first half of 2018,” continued Hill. “Although we anticipated some measure of cost inflation entering the year, the effective date of our announced price increases lagged behind the impact of higher costs incurred by our business. Importantly, our average selling prices on both materials and products have gained traction entering the third quarter, which we expect will offset these higher variable costs in the second half of the year.”

Demand conditions in most of our markets are strong and are expected to remain so into 2019 and beyond,” continued Hill. “Within our private markets, we are seeing sustained growth in new single-family home construction, given low inventories and positive demographic trends, while in our public markets, state transportation funding measures in Texas, coupled with steady increases in federal subsidies, are contributing to increased lettings activity. In July 2018, aggregates shipments per day increased 5% versus the prior year period and 13% versus June 2018.”

Since May 2018, we have completed four materials-based acquisitions for total invested capital of $75 million,” continued Hill. “Recent acquisitions have served to further establish our leadership in well-structured, materials-based markets in Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Virginia. On a year-to-date basis, we have completed eleven acquisitions for total invested capital of $228 million. Across these eleven transactions, we have added more than 300 million tons of aggregates reserves to our portfolio. The acquisition pipeline remains active as we look ahead to the remainder of the year, with multiple transactions currently in various stages of diligence.”

As of June 30, 2018, our net leverage increased to 4.3x, due to the timing of acquisition-related investments,” stated Brian Harris, CFO of Summit Materials. “By year-end 2018, we anticipate net leverage to be approximately 3.5x, subject to the pace of acquisitions.”

We continue to generate significant free cash flow from operations that is helping to support the overall growth of our business,” continued Harris. “Based on the midpoint of our revised guidance, we anticipate Adjusted EBITDA less total capital spending will be approximately $250 million in 2018. Importantly, this includes approximately $100 million of discretionary capital spending.”

Our vertically integrated, multi-local strategy continues to gain momentum in our regional markets, positioning Summit as an emerging leader in the North American heavy materials industry that remains on pace to achieve record full-year Adjusted EBITDA in 2018,” stated Hill.

Second Quarter 2018 | Results by Line of Business

Aggregates Business: Aggregates net revenues increased by 23.1% to $103.7 million in the second quarter 2018, when compared to the prior year period. Aggregates adjusted cash gross profit margin declined to 64.8% in the second quarter, versus 68.3% in the prior year period, given higher variable costs. Organic aggregates sales volumes increased 2.3% in the second quarter 2018, when compared to the prior-year period. Excluding contributions from the Company’s project-dependent sand business in Vancouver, organic aggregates sales volumes increased 4.3% in the second quarter 2018. Organic growth in aggregates sales volumes was due mainly to higher volumes in the East Region, which more than offset a decline in sales volumes in the West Region, which was impacted by adverse weather conditions during the period. Organic average selling prices on aggregates increased 3.6% in the second quarter 2018 due to year-over-year improvements in prices within both the West and East segments during the period.

Cement Business: Cement segment net revenues declined 2.8% to $81.8 million in the second quarter 2018, when compared to the prior-year period. Cement adjusted cash gross profit margin declined to 46.5% in the second quarter, versus 57.4% in the prior-year period, due to higher freight, storage and demurrage costs related to weather-affected cement inventories. Organic sales volume of cement declined 4.8% in the second quarter, when compared to the prior year period, due mainly to high levels of precipitation that disrupted project work during the period, together with competitive pressures in the market. Organic average selling prices on cement increased 1.9% in the second quarter, when compared to the prior year period.

Products Business: Net revenues increased 19.3% to $279.9 million in the second quarter 2018, when compared to the prior year period. Products adjusted cash gross profit margin declined to 22.0% in the second quarter, versus 25.6% in the prior year period, as the timing of product price increases lagged behind increases in raw materials and labor costs. Organic sales volumes of ready-mix concrete increased 0.2% in the second quarter, while organic average selling prices increased 2.7%, versus the prior year period. Organic sales volumes of asphalt increased 2.0% in the second quarter, while organic average selling prices declined 1.3%, versus the prior year period.

Second Quarter 2018 | Results By Reporting Segment

Net revenue increased by 14.8% to $549.2 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $478.4 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 income of $77.3 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $82.4 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was $135.3 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $135.2 million in the prior year period.

West Segment: The West Segment reported operating income of $38.4 million in the second quarter 2018, versus operating income of $42.9 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $61.2 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $60.5 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year improvement in West Segment Adjusted EBITDA was attributable to increased average selling prices on aggregates and ready-mix concrete, together with higher organic sales volumes of asphalt, that offset lower organic aggregates sales in the Company’s Houston operations.

East Segment: The East Segment reported operating income of $26.9 million in the second quarter 2018, versus operating income of $21.1 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $45.4 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $38.8 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year improvement in East Segment Adjusted EBITDA was mainly attributable to organic volume growth in aggregates and ready-mix concrete, which increased 11.0% and 10.3%, respectively in the period.

Cement Segment: The Cement Segment reported operating income of $25.8 million in the second quarter 2018, versus operating income of $33.7 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA declined to $34.7 million in the second quarter 2018, versus $43.8 million in the prior year period. Higher organic average selling prices were more than offset primarily by high levels of precipitation in the Company’s Mississippi River markets and price-driven competitive pressures that resulted in a year-over-year decline in organic sales volume during the second quarter 2018.

Acquisition Program

As of August 1, 2018, the Company has completed eleven acquisitions on a year-to-date basis, including four transactions that have closed since the Company’s last quarterly update on May 8, 2018. Total investment spend across the eleven acquisitions completed year-to-date 2018 was approximately $228 million, including approximately $75 million for the four bolt-on acquisitions completed since the last update.

Olathe Assets (Kansas). The Olathe Assets comprise two quarries, two asphalt plants and two construction and landfill sites. These assets expand the Company’s existing operations into the southwestern Kansas City metropolitan area. Summit closed on the acquisition of the Olathe Assets in July 2018.

Buckingham Slate (Virginia). Buckingham is an aggregates acquisition that expands the Company’s market position and reserve base in central Virginia. Summit closed on the acquisition of Buckingham Slate in June 2018.

Buildex (Missouri). Buildex is a lightweight aggregates business based in western Missouri that provides a complementary product offering to the Company’s existing portfolio in the region. Summit closed on the acquisition of Buildex in July 2018.

XIT (Texas). XIT is an aggregates company that provides further vertical integration of the Company’s operations in north Texas. Summit closed on its acquisition of XIT in July 2018.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash on hand of $50.4 million and borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility of $219.6 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 June 30, 2018, the Company had $1.8 billion in debt outstanding.

Financial Outlook

For the full-year 2018, the Company has reduced its Adjusted EBITDA guidance from a range of $495 million to $515 million to a range of $460 million to $480 million, including acquisition-related contributions from four transactions that closed since the Company’s last update in May 2018. No additional potential acquisitions are included within the Company’s full-year 2018 Adjusted EBITDA guidance. For the full-year 2018, the Company has reiterated its capital expenditure guidance in the range of $210 million to $225 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 EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, 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 (Loss), Adjusted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin , Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, Free Cash Flow and Net Leverage 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. This press release also includes certain unaudited financial information for the last twelve months (“LTM”) ended June 30, 2018, which is calculated as the six months ended June 30, 2018 plus the actual for the year-ended December 30, 2017 less the actual six months ended June 30, 2017. This presentation is not in accordance with GAAP. However, we believe that this information is useful to investors as we use LTM financial information to evaluate our financial performance for ongoing planning purposes, including a continuous assessment of our financial performance in comparison to budgets and internal projections. In addition, we use such LTM financial information to test compliance with covenants under our senior secured credit facilities.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, LTM financial information 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, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit, Adjusted Cash Gross Profit Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EPS, Free Cash Flow and Net Leverage 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.

_______________________

(1)   Net revenue for the cement line of business excludes revenue associated with hazardous and non-hazardous waste, which is processed into fuel and used in the cement plants and is included in services net revenue. Additionally, net revenue from cement swaps and other cement-related products are included in products net revenue.
(2)

Previously, we presented gross profit as a non-GAAP metric. We have renamed that metric adjusted cash gross profit to be more descriptive of the calculation. Adjusted cash gross profit calculated as net revenue by line of business less net cost of revenue by line of business. Adjusted cash gross profit margin is defined as adjusted cash gross profit divided by net revenue.

(3) The cement adjusted cash gross profit includes the earnings from the waste processing operations, cement swaps and other products. Cement line of business adjusted cash gross profit margin is defined as cement adjusted cash gross profit divided by cement segment net revenue.
