            In the second quarter 2019, total U.S. housing starts were flat compared to the same period last year. Single-family starts, the primary driver of our sales, decreased 6%, while multi-family starts increased 16%. On a year-to-date basis through June 2019, total and single-family housing starts decreased 4% and 5%, respectively, from the same period in 2018.

            "While the headwinds of low commodity products pricing and softer single-family residential starts made for challenging year-over-year financial comparisons, our businesses executed well during the second quarter. The progress we have made growing our distribution and EWP businesses is providing more stability to our earnings during periods of weak commodity pricing," commented Tom Corrick, CEO. "BMD did a great job generating gross margin dollars in the current environment and continues to make further progress with the integration of recently acquired facilities. In Wood Products, our strategic veneer production projects are progressing as planned, with commissioning underway on the recently installed assets at our Chester, South Carolina, facility, and commencement of the Florien, Louisiana, project that is expected to be operational in mid-2020."

Wood Products

            Wood Products sales, including sales to Building Materials Distribution (BMD), decreased $91.2 million, or 21%, to $334.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from $425.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decline in sales was driven primarily by lower sales prices and sales volumes for plywood. The lower sales volume for plywood was mostly due to weaker market conditions and downtime for facility capital improvements, as well as the sale of the Moncure plywood facility on March 1, 2019. In addition, we experienced lower sales volumes for I-joists and LVL (I-joists and LVL are collectively referred to as EWP). The decrease in sales was also attributable to lower sales volumes of lumber and particleboard due to the sale or closure of three lumber mills and our particleboard plant during 2018. Approximately one-third of the decrease in Wood Products sales is attributable to the previously noted facility sales or closures. These decreases were offset partially by increases in net EWP sales prices.

            Wood Products segment income decreased $17.6 million to $18.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from $36.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease in segment income was due primarily to lower sales prices of plywood and lower sales volumes of EWP and plywood, as well as higher per-unit conversion costs. These decreases were offset partially by higher net EWP sales prices and lower costs of OSB (used in the manufacture of I-joists) and logs, as well as lower employee-related expenses. In addition, depreciation and amortization expense decreased $5.4 million due primarily to discontinued depreciation on manufacturing facilities curtailed and sold in the last 12 months.

            Comparative average net selling prices and sales volume changes for EWP and plywood are as follows:

    2Q 2019 vs. 2Q 2018   2Q 2019 vs. 1Q 2019
         
 Average Net Selling Prices        
  LVL   2 %   (1 )%
  I-joists   5 %   1 %
  Plywood   (28 )%   (5 )%
 Sales Volumes        
  LVL   (5 )%   6 %
  I-joists   (11 )%   16 %
  Plywood   (7 )%   2 %

Building Materials Distribution

            BMD's sales decreased $116.4 million, or 10%, to $1,097.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from $1,213.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Compared with the same quarter in the prior year, the overall decrease in sales was driven by a sales price decrease of 12%, offset partially by a sales volume increase of 2%. Excluding the impact of the acquisition of wholesale building material distribution locations in Nashville, Tennessee, Medford, Oregon, and Cincinnati, Ohio during 2018, and the Birmingham, Alabama acquisition in 2019, BMD sales would have decreased 12%. By product line, commodity sales decreased 25%, general line product sales increased 9%, and sales of EWP (substantially all of which is sourced through our Wood Products segment) decreased less than 1%.

            BMD segment income decreased $13.9 million to $33.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, from $47.7 million in the comparative prior year quarter. The decline in segment income was driven primarily by a gross margin decrease of $10.6 million, resulting from lower average commodity prices compared with second quarter 2018. In addition, selling and distribution expenses increased by $3.6 million.
           
            In second quarter 2019, BMD completed the acquisition of the assets of American Lumber, which operated a single-location wholesale distribution business in Birmingham, Alabama (the "Acquisition"). We funded the Acquisition with cash on hand. This distribution location adds to our existing distribution business and strengthens our nationwide presence. In addition, we believe we will be able to broaden our product and service offerings within this market following the Acquisition.

Balance Sheet

            Boise Cascade ended second quarter 2019 with $202.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $365.4 million of undrawn committed bank line availability, for total available liquidity of $567.8 million. The Company had $440.0 million of outstanding debt at June 30, 2019.

            We adopted the new lease accounting standard on January 1, 2019. The most significant impact of the adoption was the recognition of right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for operating leases, as reflected on the face of our balance sheet as of June 30, 2019. The standard did not have a material impact on our consolidated net earnings and cash flows. For additional information on the impact of this standard on our accounting for leases and additional required qualitative disclosures of our lease policies, see our Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Dividends

            On August 1, 2019, our board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.09 per share on our common stock payable on September 16, 2019, to stockholders of record on September 3, 2019.

Outlook

            We expect to experience slower demand growth for the products we manufacture and distribute in 2019. The July 2019 Blue Chip consensus forecast for 2019 and 2020 reflects 1.24 million and 1.27 million total U.S. housing starts, respectively, compared with actual housing starts of 1.25 million in 2018. Although we believe U.S. demographics are supportive of higher levels of housing starts, we expect near-term residential construction growth to be flat to slightly down due to constraints faced by builders, such as availability of labor and building lots, as well as affordability constraints faced by prospective buyers. The pace of household formation rates and residential repair-and-remodeling activity will be affected by employment growth, wage growth, prospective home buyers' access to and cost of financing, housing affordability, and consumer confidence, as well as other factors. Household formation rates in turn will be a key factor behind the demand for new construction. In addition, the size of new single-family residences as well as the mix of single and multi-family starts will influence product consumption.

            Weak commodity products pricing experienced in first quarter 2019 continued throughout second quarter 2019 as weaker year-to-date residential construction activity and additional industry capacity brought on in 2018 have led to supply and demand imbalances. Commodity product pricing during the remainder of 2019 will be a key driver of our financial results and will be dependent on industry operating rates, net import and export activity, transportation constraints or disruptions, inventory levels in various distribution channels, and seasonal demand patterns. In our BMD segment, we anticipate that commodity products pricing in the third quarter of 2019 will remain at low absolute levels compared to historical levels. However, we do not expect the substantial downward price volatility and gross margin erosion like we experienced in the third quarter of 2018. With a more stable price environment, we expect BMD to report improved year-over-year financial results in third quarter 2019. For our Wood Products segment, our average plywood sales prices during July 2019 are more than 25% below average levels experienced in the third quarter of 2018. When considering the lower plywood pricing environment, and also adjusting third quarter 2018 to exclude an $11.0 million impairment charge related to asset sales, we expect Wood Products year-over-year financial comparisons to be negative in the third quarter of 2019.

            In addition, we expect to record less than $0.5 million of pension expense in third quarter 2019, compared with $11.8 million recorded in third quarter 2018, which included a non-cash pension settlement charge of $11.3 million.

            We expect our capital spending, excluding acquisitions, to be $85-$95 million in 2019, including spending to improve the efficiency of our veneer production at our Chester, South Carolina, and Florien, Louisiana, facilities.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

            We refer to the terms EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in this earnings release and the accompanying Quarterly Statistical Information as supplemental measures of our performance and liquidity that are not required by or presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We define EBITDA as income before interest (interest expense and interest income), income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Additionally, we disclose Adjusted EBITDA, which further adjusts EBITDA to exclude the change in fair value of interest rate swaps.

            We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are meaningful measures because they present a transparent view of our recurring operating performance and allow management to readily view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons, and identify strategies to improve operating performance. We also believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are useful to investors because they provide a means to evaluate the operating performance of our segments and our Company on an ongoing basis using criteria that are used by our management and because they are frequently used by investors and other interested parties when comparing companies in our industry that have different financing and capital structures and/or tax rates. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, however, are not measures of our liquidity or financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, income from operations, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. The use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA instead of net income or segment income have limitations as analytical tools, including: the inability to determine profitability; the exclusion of interest expense, interest income, and associated significant cash requirements; and the exclusion of depreciation and amortization, which represent unavoidable operating costs. Management compensates for these limitations by relying on our GAAP results. Our measures of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the methods of calculation.

Forward-Looking Statements

            This press release includes statements about our expectations of future operational and financial performance that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Statements preceded or followed by, or that otherwise include, the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "project," "estimates," "plans," "forecast," "is likely to," and similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as "will," "may," "would," "should," and "could" are generally forward-looking in nature and not historical facts. Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties. The accuracy of such statements is subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected, including, but not limited to, prices for building products, commodity input costs, the effect of general economic conditions, mortgage rates and availability, housing demand, housing vacancy rates, governmental regulations, unforeseen production disruptions, as well as natural disasters. These and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements are discussed in greater detail in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to revise them in light of new information. Finally, we undertake no obligation to review or confirm analyst expectations or estimates that might be derived from this release.
