North America net sales of $215.7 million increased 9% compared to $197.3 million, primarily due to increases in sales volumes as well as in average net sales unit prices.

Management Commentary

"Our second quarter financial results, while fundamentally strong, reflect the various investments we have been making in our business, including the development of our truss software offering, growing our market share in Europe with the associated recent acquisitions and working to deepen our foothold in the concrete repair and protection space,” commented Karen Colonias, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simpson Manufacturing Co., Inc. “Beyond these initiatives, with an industry-leading position in the U.S. connector market, the wood construction products are core to our operations and we remain dedicated to continuing to grow our offering in the single and multi-family residential and commercial space. Further, we are intently focused on reducing our total selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales which were under 30% for the quarter and down 118 basis points from the prior year quarter. While we do not expect SG&A as a percentage of net sales to be reduced to the 22% level we achieved in 2006, we are focusing on ways to be able to better leverage our expenses as we begin to monetize our various strategic initiatives.”

Mrs. Colonias concluded, “We continue to have a strong financial position which affords us the flexibility and capability to continue investing in our long-term strategy to increase shareholder value and to return capital to our valued shareholders. Despite maintaining an industry-leading gross profit margin and operating income margin, the investments we have been making in our strategic initiatives have yet to fully materialize and reflect the operating leverage and earnings power that Simpson Manufacturing strives to achieve. Over the coming quarters, we plan to provide additional metrics and targets to help our investors to better measure our success and progress on these initiatives.”

Corporate Developments

On July 13, 2017, the Company’s Board of Directors (the "Board") declared a cash dividend of $0.21 per share. The dividend will be payable on October 26, 2017 to shareholders of record as of October 5, 2017.

During the second quarter of 2017, the Company repurchased 425,000 shares of the Company's common stock pursuant to an accelerated stock repurchase program, at an average price of $41.28 per share, for a total of $17.5 million. At June 30, 2017, approximately $54.0 million remained available for repurchase under the August 2016 Board authorization for

5




repurchasing shares of the Company's common stock having an aggregate value of up to $125.0 million through December 31, 2017.

At the Company's annual meeting on May 16, 2017, Mr. Michael Bless was elected as an independent director to the Board. On the same day, Mr. Bless was appointed by the Board to both the Audit and Acquisitions and Strategy Committees. Mr. Bless has extensive board and operational experience and currently serves as President and Chief Executive Officer of Century Aluminum Co., a company in a related industry which complements Simpson’s existing Board membership. The Board believes he will provide valuable perspectives and insights to enhance the execution of the Company’s growth strategies.

Business Outlook

The Company is currently uncertain whether the market price for steel will remain stable during the third quarter of 2017.

Subject to changing economic conditions, future events and circumstances, the Company is reiterating its outlook for gross profit margin to be in the range of 45% to 46% for the full year ending December 31, 2017.
