Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • Our consolidated results of operations include the financial impact of the Mergers that were completed on April 1, 2022. The increase in gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021 was primarily due to the inclusion of Lawson operations subsequent to the April 1, 2022 Merger Date and the exclusion of Lawson operations prior to the Merger Date as a result of the accounting treatment of the Mergers. Excluding Lawson and All Other gross profit of $62.6 million for the second quarter of 2022, gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 improved $18.2 million over the prior year due to 2021 and 2022 acquisitions and growth in the organic businesses. Expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were impacted by merger related transaction and integration costs as well as the inclusion of Lawson operating results subsequent, and not prior to, the Merger Date.
