Installed Building Products, Inc. (the "Company" or "IBP") (NYSE:IBP),

  • Net income was $6.4 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA* increased 19.4% to $31.4 million

    $5.4 million
  • In January 2018, acquired Allstate Insulation, an insulation installer
    in Kentucky with annual revenues of approximately $1.5 million
  • In March 2018, acquired Custom Overhead Door, LLC, a provider of
    garage door, gates and access control systems and maintenance services
    to commercial and residential customers in North Carolina with annual
    revenues of approximately $15.0 million

Recent Developments

  • In April 2018, acquired H2H Blinds, LLC, an installer of blinds and
    shutters primarily for the residential construction market in Georgia
    and North Carolina with annual revenues of approximately $7.5 million

"First quarter net revenues increased at a strong rate, outpacing
completions growth, as we achieved our first quarter with revenues over
$300 million," stated Jeff Edwards, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer. "The 18.0% increase in net revenue during the first quarter was
driven by IBP's presence in strong housing markets, the contribution of
our recent acquisitions, and the growing diversity of installation
services across our end markets and products. During the 2018 first
quarter, net revenues per total U.S. housing completions was $1,136, an
increase of 9.0% from the same period last year and is up 61.6% over the
past three years. IBP's growth in revenues per completions reflects the
proactive strategy to diversify IBP's installation services to
complementary building products with similar margin characteristics.
Diversifying IBP's product mix allows IBP to provide more installation
services to our customers, expand our end markets, and deepen our
relationships with builders across the country.

"As we stated last quarter, manufacturers have aggressively increased
pricing in 2018, which impacted first quarter profitability. While we
are actively adjusting pricing with our customers, we realized selling
price increases at a slower rate than the increase in material costs. We
have been successful negotiating better pricing with our customers and
experienced accelerating price momentum during the month of March. As a
result, we believe pricing will continue to improve during the second
quarter, which will benefit margins and incremental earnings.

"I am extremely pleased with our record first quarter. Our acquisition
pipeline remains robust, and the acquisitions we have recently completed
are performing well and helping IBP further diversify its products and
end markets. As the housing market continues to recover, we will
continue to focus on improving our customer mix, increasing selling
prices and expanding the cross-sale of our other complementary products.
I am confident the strategies underway will continue to profitably grow
our business, while our acquisition strategy continues to expand our
footprint and product offerings," concluded Mr. Edwards.

First Quarter 2018 Results Overview

For the first quarter of 2018, net revenue was $301.7 million, an
increase of 18.0% from $255.7 million in the first quarter of 2017. On a
same branch basis, net revenue improved 11.3% from the prior year
quarter, with approximately 7.3% of the increase attributable to growth
in the number of completed jobs, 3.6% through price gains and more
favorable customer and product mix. Same branch new residential sales
increased 11.3%, compared to growth in U.S. housing completions of 8.2%,
and our large commercial construction end market had organic growth of
13.5%.

Gross profit improved 10.8% to nearly $80.0 million from $72.2 million
in the prior year quarter. Adjusted gross profit* as a percent of total
revenue was 27.0% which adjusts for the Company's share-based
compensation expense, financial wellness program and branch start-up
costs, compared to 28.2% for the same period last year. The decline in
gross profit margin was predominately attributable to higher material
costs.

Selling and administrative expense, as a percentage of net revenue, was
19.9% compared to 20.8% in the prior year quarter. Adjusted selling and
administrative expense*, as a percentage of net revenue, improved 120
basis points to 19.2% from 20.4%. Higher net revenue in the 2018 first
quarter more than offset the higher costs needed to support the
Company's growth.

Net income was $6.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to
$6.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.
Adjusted net income was $14.4 million, or $0.45 per diluted share,
compared to $11.1 million, or $0.35 per diluted share in the prior year
quarter. Adjusted net income* adjusts for the impact of non-core items
in both periods and includes an addback for non-cash amortization
expense related to acquisitions.

Adjusted EBITDA* was $31.4 million, a 19.4% increase from $26.3 million
in the prior year quarter, largely due to higher sales and improved
selling and administrative leverage. Adjusted EBITDA, as a percentage of
net revenue, increased to 10.4%, compared to 10.3% in the prior year
quarter.

During the first quarter of 2018, the Company purchased a total of 413
thousand shares of its common stock for approximately $24.6 million,
pursuant to the Company's existing $50 million share repurchase program.
The program will remain in effect until February 28, 2019, unless
extended by the Board of Directors.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted
Gross Profit and Adjusted Selling and Administrative Expense measure
performance by adjusting EBITDA, GAAP net income, gross profit and
selling and administrative expense, respectively, for certain income or
expense items that are not considered part of our core operations. We
believe that the presentation of these measures provides useful
information to investors regarding our results of operations because it
assists both investors and us in analyzing and benchmarking the
performance and value of our business.

We believe the Adjusted EBITDA measure is useful to investors and us as
a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period as
it measures our changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other
factors that impact operating performance, and removes the effect of our
capital structure (primarily interest expense), asset base (primarily
depreciation and amortization), items outside our control (primarily
income taxes) and the volatility related to the timing and extent of
other activities such as asset impairments and non-core income and
expenses. Accordingly, we believe that this measure is useful for
comparing general operating performance from period to period. In
addition, we use various EBITDA-based measures in determining the
achievement of awards under certain of our incentive compensation
programs. Other companies may define Adjusted EBITDA differently and, as
a result, our measure may not be directly comparable to measures of
other companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently
for purposes of covenants contained in our revolving credit facility or
any future facility.

Although we use the Adjusted EBITDA measure to assess the performance of
our business, the use of the measure is limited because it does not
include certain material expenses, such as interest and taxes, necessary
to operate our business. Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in
addition to, and not as a substitute for, GAAP net income as a measure
of performance. Our presentation of this measure should not be construed
as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual
or non-recurring items. This measure has limitations as an analytical
tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for
analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because of these
limitations, this measure is not intended as an alternative to net
income as an indicator of our operating performance, as an alternative
to any other measure of performance in conformity with GAAP or as an
alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure
of liquidity. You should therefore not place undue reliance on this
measure or ratios calculated using this measure.

We also believe the Adjusted Net Income measure is useful to investors
and us as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to
period as it measures our changes in pricing decisions, cost controls
and other factors that impact operating performance, and removes the
effect of certain non-core items such as discontinued operations,
acquisition related expenses, amortization expense, the tax impact of
these certain non-core items, and the volatility related to the timing
and extent of other activities such as asset impairments and non-core
income and expenses. To make the financial presentation more consistent
with other public building products companies, beginning in the fourth
quarter 2016 we included an addback for non-cash amortization expense
related to acquisitions. Accordingly, we believe that this measure is
useful for comparing general operating performance from period to
period. Other companies may define Adjusted Net Income differently and,
as a result, our measure may not be directly comparable to measures of
other companies. In addition, Adjusted Net Income may be defined
differently for purposes of covenants contained in our revolving credit
facility or any future facility.

The table below reconciles Adjusted Net Income to the most directly
comparable GAAP financial measure, net income, for the periods presented
therein.

Per share figures may reflect rounding adjustments and consequently
totals may not appear to sum.
