Summit Materials, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

- Operating income increased 21.0% in third quarter 2019

- Organic aggregates volumes increased 11.4%

- Organic aggregates price increased 6.9%

- Narrowed 2019 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $440 - $460 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 third quarter 2019.

For the three months ended September 28, 2019, the Company reported net income attributable to Summit Inc. of $55.8 million, or $0.50 per basic share, compared to net income attributable to Summit Inc. of $71.3 million, or $0.64 per basic share in the comparable prior year period. Although operating income increased in the third quarter to $130.9 million as compared to $108.2 million in the prior year period, net income declined due to an increase in income tax expense related to proposed US tax reform regulations that would limit interest deductibility. Summit reported adjusted diluted net income of $58.2 million, or $0.50 per adjusted diluted share as compared to adjusted diluted net income of $61.9 million, or $0.54 per adjusted diluted share in the prior year period.

Summit's net revenue increased 6.5% in the third quarter of 2019 relative to the comparable 2018 period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 12.4% to $193.3 million in the third quarter 2019 as compared to $172.0 million in 2018.

Tom Hill, CEO of Summit Materials, commented, 'We delivered a double-digit percentage increase in third quarter Adjusted EBITDA with organic price increases and higher volumes in all lines of business on strong demand and improved weather conditions relative to a year ago. We experienced a return to volume growth and full utilization in our cement business as shipping traffic began to normalize on the Mississippi River. Levee repair work in Missouri and market conditions in Kansas drove aggregates volumes higher, and although ready-mix volumes were higher in the quarter, we did lose some sales due to Tropical Storm 'Imelda' in the Houston market.'

Third quarter 2019 sales volumes increased 12.6% in aggregates, 3.8% in cement, 1.8% in ready-mix concrete and 2.3% in asphalt relative to the year ago quarter. Third quarter 2019 average selling prices increased 6.9% in aggregates, 3.1% in cement, 2.9% in ready-mix concrete, and 7.2% in asphalt relative to the prior year period. Summit's operating margin expanded to 19.7% in the third quarter 2019 from 17.3% in the third quarter 2018.

Hill added, 'Our year-to-date performance includes a seasonally strong third quarter and the resumption of normal operations in our cement business that was impacted by shipping constraints during the first half of the year that has begun to normalize. Despite these challenges, our cement volumes were up 2.9% for the nine months ended September 28, 2019. With the exception of our ready-mix business, where volumes were impacted by rainy conditions in Texas, we experienced solid volume growth in our aggregates and asphalt businesses and price growth in all lines of business, which helped us rebound from setbacks in the first half of the year.'

On a year-to-date basis through September 28, 2019, Summit's net revenue increased 4.1% over the comparable 2018 period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 8.8% to $340.4 million for the first nine months of 2019 as compared to $312.9 million for the same period in 2018.

Year-to-date through September 28, 2019 sales volumes increased 12.6% in aggregates, 2.9% in cement, and 2.6% in asphalt, while ready-mix concrete volume declined 3.1% relative to the same period last year. Average selling prices for the first nine months of 2019 increased 7.9% in aggregates, 1.4% in cement, 2.3% in ready-mix concrete, and 6.6% in asphalt relative to the prior year period. Summit's operating margin expanded to 10.1% in the first nine months of 2019 from 9.1% in the same period 2018.

Summit narrowed its 2019 full year Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $440 million to $460 million from $430 to $470 million. Hill continued, 'Based on our performance year to date and anticipating normal weather conditions, we believe it makes sense to narrow our guidance range for the year.'

The Company narrowed its guidance for 2019 capital expenditures to approximately $160 million to $170 million from $160 million to $175 million. Cash paid for capital equipment decreased to $139.8 million in the first nine months of 2019 from $183.8 million in the same period 2018. The Company reiterated its guidance to reduce its leverage ratio by year-end 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 | Results by Line of Business

Aggregates Business: Aggregates net revenues increased by 25.5% to $137.5 million in the third quarter 2019, when compared to the prior year period. Aggregates adjusted cash gross profit margin declined slightly to 68.6% in the third quarter 2019 compared to 69.2% in the prior year period on product mix. Organic aggregates sales volumes increased 11.4% in the third quarter 2019, when compared to the prior-year period on higher organic volume growth in both the East and West segments. Organic average selling prices on aggregates increased 6.9% in the third quarter 2019 when compared to the prior year period due to improvements in prices, particularly in the East segment related to levee repair work in Missouri.

Cement Business: Cement segment net revenues increased 5.3% to $99.0 million in the third quarter 2019, when compared to the prior-year period. Cement adjusted cash gross profit margin decreased to 46.0% in the third quarter, compared to 50.7% in the prior-year period, as the Company incurred increased distribution costs to overcome the lingering effects of shipping delays on the Mississippi River in the first half of the year. Organic sales volume of cement increased 3.8% in the third quarter, when compared to the prior year period. Organic average selling prices on cement increased 3.1% in the third quarter when compared to the prior year period.

Products Business: Net revenues were $324.7 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $315.3 million in the prior year period, which included the sale of a non-core business. Products adjusted cash gross profit margin increased to 24.4% in the third quarter, versus 22.5% in the prior year period, due in part to increased pricing in Kansas, Texas, and Intermountain geographies. Our organic average sales price for ready-mix concrete increased 2.7%, coupled with a 1.3% increase in organic sales volumes of ready-mix concrete. Our organic average sales price for asphalt increased 7.2% while we had a 2.3% increase in asphalt organic sales volumes, primarily driven by growth in Kansas and Missouri.

Third Quarter 2019 | Results By Reporting Segment

Net revenue increased by 6.5% to $665.8 million in the third quarter 2019, versus $625.0 million in the prior year period. The improvement in net revenue was primarily attributable to organic growth. The Company reported operating income of $130.9 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $108.2 million in the prior year period. Net income decreased to $58.2 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $74.0 million in the prior year period, due to a significant increase in income tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA increased 12.4% to $193.3 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $172.0 million in the prior year period.

West Segment: The West Segment reported operating income of $58.5 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $48.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $81.9 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $73.9 million in the prior year period. Improvements in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA are due in part to the realization of higher operational efficiencies under improved weather conditions. Aggregates revenue in the third quarter increased 10.6% over the prior year period from a combination of acquisition performance and organic growth, including a 3.5% increase in organic volumes and a 4.1% increase in organic average sales prices, particularly in Texas. Ready-mix concrete revenue in the third quarter 2019 increased 3.6% over the prior year period, as a 1.0% decrease in organic volumes, was offset by a 3.7% increase in organic average sales prices. Asphalt revenue increased by 11.3% in the third quarter 2019 over the prior year period, as our liquid asphalt terminal which had been damaged in Hurricane Harvey was operating in 2019, but not in the comparable period in 2018.

East Segment: The East Segment reported operating income of $55.5 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $38.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $76.8 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $58.3 million in the prior year period. Aggregates revenue increased 28.5% due to increases resulting from a 18.7% and 8.3% increase in organic volumes and average sales prices, respectively, driven by growth in Missouri and Kansas. Ready-mix concrete revenue increased 8.1% due to an increase in organic volumes. Asphalt revenue increased 20.2% as a result of a 9.3% increase in organic volumes and a 6.2% increase in organic average sales prices.

Cement Segment: The Cement Segment reported operating income of $31.5 million in the third quarter 2019, a decrease from $33.5 million in the prior year period Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $42.7 million in the third quarter 2019, compared to $44.3 million in the prior year period, due primarily to the lingering effects of shipping constraints on the Mississippi River. Despite these challenges, the segment reported increases of 3.8% and 3.1% in organic sales volumes and organic average selling prices, respectively, during the third quarter 2019 as compared to the prior year period.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

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.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes '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. All statements made relating to our estimated and projected earnings, margins, costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates and financial results are forward-looking statements.

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 effect 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 realized. 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 Summit Inc.'s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC'), any factors discussed in the section entitled 'Risk Factors' in any of our subsequently filed SEC filings, and the following:

  • our dependence on the construction industry and the strength of the local economies in which we operate;
  • the cyclical nature of our business;
  • risks related to weather and seasonality;
  • risks associated with our capital-intensive business;
  • competition within our local markets;
  • our ability to execute on our acquisition strategy, successfully integrate acquisitions with our existing operations and retain key employees of acquired businesses;
  • our dependence on securing and permitting aggregate reserves in strategically located areas;
  • declines in public infrastructure construction and delays or reductions in governmental funding, including the funding by transportation authorities and other state agencies;
  • environmental, health, safety and climate change laws or governmental requirements or policies concerning zoning and land use;
  • rising prices for commodities, labor and other production and delivery costs as a result of inflation or otherwise;
  • conditions in the credit markets;
  • our ability to accurately estimate the overall risks, requirements or costs when we bid on or negotiate contracts that are ultimately awarded to us;
  • material costs and losses as a result of claims that our products do not meet regulatory requirements or contractual specifications;
  • cancellation of a significant number of contracts or our disqualification from bidding for new contracts;
  • special hazards related to our operations that may cause personal injury or property damage not covered by insurance;
  • our substantial current level of indebtedness;
  • our dependence on senior management and other key personnel;
  • supply constraints or significant price fluctuations in the electricity and petroleum-based resources that we use, including diesel and liquid asphalt;
  • climate change and climate change legislation or regulations;
  • unexpected operational difficulties;
  • interruptions in our information technology systems and infrastructure; and
  • potential labor disputes.

All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us, or persons acting on our behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements. Any forward-looking statement that we make herein speaks only as of the date of this press release. 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 required by law.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue.
(2) In the nine months ended September 28, 2019, we negotiated a $2.0 million reduction in the amount of a contingent liability from one of our acquisitions. In the nine months ended September 29, 2018, we negotiated a $6.9 million reduction in the amount of a contingent liability from one of our acquisitions. As we had passed the period to revise the opening balance sheet for this acquisition, the adjustment was recorded in the respective period as other income.

The table below reconciles our net income per share attributable to Summit Materials, Inc. to adjusted diluted net income per share for the three and nine months ended September 28, 2019 and September 29, 2018. The per share amount of the net income attributable to Summit Materials, Inc. presented in the table is calculated using the total equity interests for the purpose of reconciling to adjusted diluted net income per share.
