Financial report summary

BMC Stock
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our business, and will likely continue to impact our business in the future.
  • The industry in which we operate is dependent upon the residential homebuilding industry, as well as the U.S. economy, the credit markets and other important factors.
  • The building supply industry is subject to cyclical market pressures.
  • Our industry is highly fragmented and competitive, and increased competitive pressure may adversely affect our results.
  • A range of factors may make our quarterly revenues, earnings and cash flows variable.
  • We may be unable to successfully implement our growth strategy, which includes increasing sales of our prefabricated components and other value-added products, pursuing strategic acquisitions, opening new facilities, implementing operational excellence, pursuing digitization opportunities and initiatives, and maintaining a balanced debt level.
  • We are subject to competitive pricing pressure from our customers.
  • The loss of any of our significant customers or a reduction in the quantity of products they purchase could affect our financial health.
  • Product shortages, loss of key suppliers, and our dependence on third-party suppliers and manufacturers could affect our financial health.
  • Failure to attract and retain our key employees and the impact of our recent leadership changes may adversely impact our ability to successfully execute our business strategies.
  • We are subject to cybersecurity risks and expect to incur increasing costs in an effort to minimize those risks.
  • Changes in our customer or product sales mix affect our operating results.
  • We occupy most of our facilities under long-term non-cancelable leases. We may be unable to renew leases at the end of their terms. If we close a facility, we are still obligated under the applicable lease.
  • Integrating the business of BMC into our existing business may be more difficult, costly or time-consuming than expected, and we may fail to realize the anticipated benefits of the BMC Merger, which may adversely affect our business results and negatively affect the value of our common stock following the BMC Merger.
  • We will incur significant integration costs in connection with the BMC Merger.
  • We may have future capital needs and may not be able to obtain additional financing on acceptable terms.
  • We may incur additional indebtedness.
  • Our debt instruments contain various covenants that limit our ability to operate our business.
  • Our variable rate indebtedness subjects us to interest rate risk, which could cause our indebtedness service obligations to increase significantly.
  • If the housing market declines, we may be required to take impairment charges relating to our operations or temporarily idle or permanently close under-performing locations.
  • We do not have any current plan to pay dividends on our common stock, and as a result, your ability to achieve a return on your investment in our common stock may be limited to any increases in the price of our common stock.
  • Our inability to effectively deploy our excess capital may negatively affect return on equity and stockholder value.
  • The nature of our business exposes us to product liability, product warranty, casualty, construction defect, asbestos, vehicle and other claims and legal proceedings.
  • Future changes to tax laws and regulations could have an adverse impact on our business.
  • We are subject to potential exposure to environmental liabilities and are subject to environmental regulation.
  • We may be adversely affected by uncertainty in the economy and financial markets, including as a result of terrorism, unrest, or pandemics.
  • We may be adversely affected by any natural or man-made disruptions to our operations and our distribution and manufacturing facilities.
  • The price of our common stock is volatile and may decline.
Management Discussion
  • Cash provided by operating activities was $1.7 billion in 2021, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $260.1 million in 2020. The increase in cash used in operating activities was largely the result of an increase in net income in 2021, exceeding the net income in 2020.
  • For the year ended December 31, 2021 the Company used $1.3 billion in cash in investing activities, $1.2 billion more than the same period in the prior year. Of this increase, $1.2 billion more was spent on acquisitions and $110.7 million more as a net investment in property, plant and equipment. Offsetting these increases in cash used for investing activities was cash acquired from the Gypsum Divestiture.
  • Cash used in financing activities was $780.1 million in 2021, which consisted primarily of $1.7 billion in repurchases of common stock, cash used to extinguish $359.8 million of debt acquired in the BMC Merger and the redemption of $165.0 million of the Company’s 2027 notes, partially offset by cash received from the issuance of $1.0 billion of 2032 notes and net borrowings under the 2026 facility of $513.0 million. Cash provided by financing activities was $285.9 million for 2020, which was primarily related to the net proceeds received from the Company’s financing transactions during the period, including the issuance of $550.0 million in 2030 notes and $350.0 million of 2027 notes. The proceeds from these issuances were offset by the redemption of the remaining $503.9 million of 2024 notes, repayment of the remaining $52.0 million term loan, and partial redemption of $47.5 million of 2027 notes. These transactions are described in Note 8 to the consolidated financial statements included in Item 8 of this annual report on Form 10-K.
