BMC Stock drives profit in Q1

Commodity price fluctuation leads to slip in sales, dealer says.

BY HBSDealer Staff

BMC Stock Holdings reported first quarter net sales fell 1.1% to $825.4 million from net sales of $834.2 million in the first quarter of 2018.

The Raleigh, N.C.-based pro dealer attributed the decline to commodity price deflation along with one less selling day in the quarter compared to the same period last year. Those factors were offset by 3.2% organic growth and 3.2% acquisition growth.

BMC posted a net income of $20.4 million for the quarter, up more than 32% from a net income of $15.4 million for the corresponding quarter last year.

During the first quarter BMC completed the acquisitions of Barefoot and Company and Locust Lumber, which strengthen the pro dealer’s presence in the Charlotte, N.C. market.
