Tucker, Georgia, December 4, 2018.

GMS Inc. (NYSE:GMS), a leading North American distributor of wallboard and suspended ceilings systems, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 ended October 31, 2018.

 

Net sales for the fiscal second quarter ended October 31, 2018 increased 28.7% to a record $833.8 million from $648.0 million for the fiscal second quarter ended October 31, 2017. Reported net income increased to $24.9 million, or $0.58 per diluted share in the fiscal second quarter ended October 31, 2018, compared to $18.0 million, or $0.43 per diluted share in the fiscal second quarter ended October 31, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal second quarter increased to a record $87.1 million from Adjusted EBITDA of $54.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

 

Mike Callahan, President and CEO of GMS, stated, “We delivered a strong fiscal second quarter highlighted by record net sales and adjusted EBITDA. Our organic sales increased 8.7%  year-over-year, reflecting broad-based sales growth across each of our product groups. Adjusted EBITDA increased more than 60%, reflecting contributions from the Titan acquisition, our continued focus on price discipline and our steadfast commitment to operational improvement. Driven by improved profitability, we generated strong free cash flow of $88 million during the second quarter, which allowed us to reduce our net leverage nearly a half turn from 4.2 times to 3.8 times.”

 

Mr. Callahan continued, “As we look toward the second half of the fiscal year, we remain confident in the health of our end markets and see continued growth opportunities across our product portfolio. We feel very good about our leading North American platform with significant scale advantages and a well-balanced portfolio built for growth and value creation. I am also pleased to announce that our Board of Directors has approved the repurchase of up to $75 million of the Company’s common stock. We plan to opportunistically purchase our common stock while at the same time continue with our stated strategy to use expected operating cash flows to reduce our net leverage to under 3.0 times by the end of fiscal 2020.”
