NOTES TO UNAUDITED

CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

A.       BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated condensed financial statements (the “Financial Statements”) include our accounts and those of our wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries and partnerships, and have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, the Financial Statements do not include all the information and footnotes normally included in the annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.  Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

In our opinion, the Financial Statements contain all material adjustments necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. These Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements, and footnotes thereto, included in our Annual Report to Shareholders on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 26, 2020.

Seasonality has a significant impact on our working capital from March to August, which historically results in negative or modest cash flows from operations in our first and second quarters. Conversely, we experience a substantial decrease in working capital from September to February which typically results in significant cash flow from operations in our third and fourth quarters. For comparative purposes, we have included the March 28, 2020 balances in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.

B.       FAIR VALUE

We apply the provisions of ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, to assets and liabilities measured at fair value. Assets measured at fair value are as follows (in thousands):

C.       REVENUE RECOGNITION

Within the 3 primary segments (Retail, Industrial, and Construction) that the Company operates, there are a variety of written agreements governing the sale of our products and services. The transaction price is stated at the purchase order level, which includes shipping and/or freight costs and any applicable governmental authority taxes. The majority of our contracts have a single performance obligation concentrated around the delivery of goods to the carrier, Free On Board (FOB) shipping point. Therefore, revenue is recognized when this performance obligation is satisfied. Generally, title and control passes at the time of shipment. In certain circumstances, the customer takes title when the shipment arrives at the destination. However, our shipping process is typically completed the same day.

Certain customer products that we provide require installation by the Company or a 3rd party. Installation revenue is recognized upon completion. If the Company uses a 3rd party for installation, the party will act as an agent to the Company until completion of the installation. Installation revenue represents an immaterial share of the Company’s total sales.

UFP INDUSTRIES, INC.

The Company utilizes rebates, credits, discounts and/or cash-based incentives with certain customers which are accounted for as variable consideration. We estimate these amounts based on the expected amount to be provided to customers and reduce revenues recognized. We believe that there will not be significant changes to our estimates of variable consideration. The allocation of these costs are applied at the invoice level and recognized in conjunction with revenue. Additionally, returns and refunds are estimated on a historical and expected basis which is a reduction of revenue recognized.

Earnings on construction contracts are reflected in operations using over time accounting, under either cost to cost or units of delivery methods, depending on the nature of the business at individual operations, which is in accordance with ASC 606 as revenue is recognized when certain performance obligations are performed. Under over time accounting using the cost to cost method, revenues and related earnings on construction contracts are measured by the relationships of actual costs incurred related to the total estimated costs. Under over time accounting using the units of delivery method, revenues and related earnings on construction contracts are measured by the relationships of actual units produced related to the total number of units. Revisions in earnings estimates on the construction contracts are recorded in the accounting period in which the basis for such revisions becomes known. Projected losses on individual contracts are charged to operations in their entirety when such losses become apparent.

Our construction contracts are generally entered into with a fixed price and completion of the projects can range from 6 to 18 months in duration. Therefore, our operating results are impacted by, among many other things, labor rates and commodity costs. During the year, we update our estimated costs to complete our projects using current labor and commodity costs and recognize losses to the extent that they exist.

E.       COMMITMENTS, CONTINGENCIES, AND GUARANTEES

We are self-insured for environmental impairment liability, including certain liabilities which are insured through a wholly owned subsidiary, Ardellis Insurance Ltd., a licensed captive insurance company.

We own and operate a number of facilities throughout the United States that chemically treat lumber products. In connection with the ownership and operation of these and other real properties, and the disposal or treatment of hazardous or toxic substances, we may, under various federal, state, and local environmental laws, ordinances, and regulations, be potentially liable for removal and remediation costs, as well as other potential costs, damages, and expenses. Environmental reserves, calculated with 0 discount rate, have been established to cover remediation activities at wood preservation facilities in Stockertown, PA; Elizabeth City, NC; and Auburndale, FL. In addition, a reserve was established for our facility in Thornton, CA to remove certain lead containing materials which existed on the property at the time of purchase.

On a consolidated basis, we have reserved approximately $1.9 million on March 27, 2021 and $2.0 million on March 28, 2020, respectively, representing the estimated costs to complete future remediation efforts. These amounts have not been reduced by an insurance receivable.

In addition, on March 27, 2021, we were parties either as plaintiff or defendant to a number of lawsuits and claims arising through the normal course of our business. In the opinion of management, our consolidated financial statements will not be materially affected by the outcome of these contingencies and claims.

On March 27, 2021, we had outstanding purchase commitments on commenced capital projects of approximately $41.3 million.

We provide a variety of warranties for products we manufacture. Historically, warranty claims have not been material. We also distribute products manufactured by other companies, some of which are no longer in business. While we do not warrant these products, we have received claims as a distributor of these products when the manufacturer no longer exists or has the ability to pay. Historically, these costs have not had a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

UFP INDUSTRIES, INC.

As part of our operations, we supply building materials and labor to site-built construction projects or we jointly bid on contracts with framing companies for such projects. In some instances, we are required to post payment and performance bonds to ensure the products and installation services are completed in accordance with our contractual obligations. We have agreed to indemnify the surety for claims properly made against these bonds. As of March 27, 2021, we had approximately $27.0 million outstanding payment and performance bonds for open projects. We had approximately $4.0 million in payment and performance bonds outstanding for completed projects which are still under warranty.

On March 27, 2021, we had outstanding letters of credit totaling $50.9 million, primarily related to certain insurance contracts and industrial development revenue bonds described further below.

In lieu of cash deposits, we provide irrevocable letters of credit in favor of our insurers to guarantee our performance under certain insurance contracts. As of March 27, 2021, we have irrevocable letters of credit outstanding totaling approximately $43.8 million for these types of insurance arrangements. We have reserves recorded on our balance sheet, in accrued liabilities, that reflect our expected future liabilities under these insurance arrangements.

We are required to provide irrevocable letters of credit in favor of the bond trustees for all industrial development revenue bonds that have been issued. These letters of credit guarantee principal and interest payments to the bondholders. We currently have irrevocable letters of credit outstanding totaling approximately $7.1 million related to our outstanding industrial development revenue bonds. These letters of credit have varying terms but may be renewed at the option of the issuing banks.

Certain wholly owned domestic subsidiaries have guaranteed the indebtedness of UFP Industries, Inc. in certain debt agreements, including the Series 2012, 2018 and 2020 Senior Notes and our revolving credit facility. The maximum exposure of these guarantees is limited to the indebtedness outstanding under these debt arrangements and this exposure will expire concurrent with the expiration of the debt agreements.

We did not enter into any new guarantee arrangements during the first quarter of 2021 which would require us to recognize a liability on our balance sheet.

H.       INCOME TAXES

Effective tax rates differ from statutory federal income tax rates, primarily due to provisions for foreign, state and local income taxes and permanent tax differences. Our effective tax rate was 23.3% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 24.7% for same period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to an anticipated decrease in our U.S. tax rate and a variety of other discrete tax items, none of which are individually significant.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

UFP Industries, Inc. is a holding company with subsidiaries throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia that supply wood, wood composite and other products to three markets: retail, industrial, and construction. We are headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For more information about UFP Industries, Inc., or our affiliated operations, go to www.ufpi.com.

This report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act, as amended, that are based on management’s beliefs, assumptions, current expectations, estimates and projections about the markets we serve, the economy and the Company itself. Words like “anticipates,” “believes,” “confident,” “estimates,” “expects,” “forecasts,” “likely,” “plans,” “projects,” “should,” variations of such words, and similar expressions identify such forward-looking statements. These statements do not guarantee future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict with regard to timing, extent, likelihood and degree of occurrence. The Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect facts, circumstances, events, or assumptions that occur after the date the forward-looking statements are made. Actual results could differ materially from those included in such forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that all forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainty. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements are the following: fluctuations in the price of lumber; adverse or unusual weather conditions; adverse economic conditions in the markets we serve; government regulations, particularly involving environmental and safety regulations, government imposed “stay at home” orders and directives to cease or curtail operations; and our ability to make successful business acquisitions. Certain of these risk factors as well as other risk factors and additional information are included in the Company's reports on Form 10-K and 10-Q on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We are pleased to present this overview of the first quarter of 2021.

OVERVIEW

Our results for the first quarter of 2021 include the following highlights:

Our net sales were up 77% compared to the first quarter of 2020, which was comprised of a 44% increase in selling prices primarily due to the commodity lumber market (see Historical Lumber Prices below), a 10% increase in organic unit sales, and a 23% increase in unit sales due to acquisitions completed since March of last year. Organic unit growth was driven by an 18% increase in our retail segment, 6% in our construction segment, and 5% in our industrial segment.
Our operating profits increased $78.9 million, or 134%, compared to the first quarter of 2020. Acquisitions contributed approximately $25.5 million to our increase in gross profits and $14.2 million to our increase in operating profits. The remaining improvement in our profitability was driven by a number of factors, including organic unit growth in all of our segments while effectively leveraging fixed costs, inventory positioning and the impact of rising lumber prices on the selling prices of commodity-based products sold on a variable price formula and growth of our new and value-added products which have higher gross margins.  In addition, our ability to effectively include lumber cost increases in the selling prices of certain fixed price products enabled us to maintain our profit per unit. Excluding the impact of acquisitions, we estimate value-added and commodity-based products contributed $38.8 million and $55.0 million, respectively, to our increase in gross profits.
Our cash flows used in operations for the first three months of 2021 decreased to $197 million compared to $46 million during the first quarter of 2020, primarily due to an increased investment in working capital of $216 million compared to the prior year. The increase in our net working capital requirements during the first quarter of 2021 were due to unusually high lumber prices and strong market demand, particularly in our retail segment.

We purchased 100% of the common stock of PalletOne and its wholly owned subsidiaries, including Sunbelt Forest Products, for approximately $259 million (includes a seasonal working capital adjustment of $6 million).
Our net debt (debt and cash overdraft less cash) at the end of March 2021 was $429 million compared to $131 million at the end of March 2020. The increase of $298 million was due to an increased investment in working capital and the purchase of PalletOne discussed above. Our available borrowing capacity under revolving credit facilities and cash surplus resulted in total liquidity of approximately $420.8 million at the end of the first quarter of 2021.

HISTORICAL LUMBER PRICES

We experience significant fluctuations in the cost of commodity lumber products from primary producers (“Lumber Market”). The following table presents the Random Lengths framing lumber composite price:

The sequential increase in lumber prices above is primarily due to the continuation of strong market demand as well as certain constraints in the supply chain of lumber. We anticipate lumber prices will normalize during the last half of this year as these constraints on supply improve. A sequential decline in lumber prices will impact our profitability of products sold with fixed and variable prices as discussed below.

UFP INDUSTRIES, INC.

IMPACT OF THE LUMBER MARKET ON OUR OPERATING RESULTS

We generally price our products to pass lumber costs through to our customers so that our profitability is based on the value-added manufacturing, distribution, engineering, and other services we provide. As a result, our sales levels (and working capital requirements) are impacted by the lumber costs of our products. Lumber costs were 63.1% and 45.6% of our sales in the first three months of 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase from the prior year ratio reflects the impact of higher lumber prices and the results of PalletOne and its subsidiaries.

Our gross margins are impacted by (1) the relative level of the Lumber Market (i.e. whether prices are higher or lower from comparative periods), and (2) the trend in the market price of lumber (i.e. whether the price of lumber is increasing or decreasing within a period or from period to period). Moreover, as explained below, our products are priced differently. Some of our products have fixed selling prices, while the selling prices of other products are indexed to the reported Lumber Market with a fixed dollar adder to cover conversion costs and profits. Consequently, the level and trend of the Lumber Market impact our products differently.

Below is a general description of the primary ways in which our products are priced.

Products with fixed selling prices. These products include value-added products, such as manufactured items, sold within all segments. Prices for these products are generally fixed at the time of the sales quotation for a specified period of time. In order to reduce any exposure to adverse trends in the price of component lumber products, we attempt to lock in costs with our suppliers or purchase necessary inventory for these sales commitments. The time period limitation eventually allows us to periodically re-price our products for changes in lumber costs from our suppliers. We believe our percentage of sales of fixed price items is greatest in our third and fourth quarters.
Products with selling prices indexed to the reported Lumber Market with a fixed dollar “adder” to cover conversion costs and profit. These products primarily include treated lumber, panel goods, other commodity-type items, and trusses sold to the manufactured housing industry. For these products, we estimate the customers’ needs and we carry anticipated levels of inventory. Because lumber costs are incurred in advance of final sale prices, subsequent increases or decreases in the market price of lumber impact our gross margins. We believe our sales of these products are at their highest relative level in our second quarter, primarily due to pressure-treated lumber sold to the retail market.

For each of the product pricing categories above, our margins are exposed to changes in the trend of lumber prices.

The greatest risk associated with changes in the trend of lumber prices is on the following products:

Products with significant inventory levels with low turnover rates, whose selling prices are indexed to the Lumber Market. In other words, the longer the period of time these products remain in inventory, the greater the exposure to changes in the price of lumber. This would include treated lumber, which comprised approximately 20% of our total annual sales in 2020. This exposure is less significant with remanufactured lumber, panel goods, other commodity-type items, and trusses sold to the manufactured housing market due to the higher rate of inventory turnover. We attempt to mitigate the risk associated with treated lumber through inventory consignment programs with our vendors. Our annual purchases of inventory through these consignment programs was approximately 19% of our total lumber purchases in 2020. (Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of our annual report on form 10-K, filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.)
Products with fixed selling prices sold under long-term supply arrangements, particularly those involving multi-family construction projects. We attempt to mitigate this risk through our purchasing practices and longer vendor commitments.

In addition to the impact of the Lumber Market trends on gross margins, changes in the level of the market cause fluctuations in gross margins when comparing operating results from period to period. This is explained in the following example, which assumes the price of lumber has increased from period one to period two, with no changes in the trend within each period.

As is apparent from the preceding example, the level of lumber prices does not impact our overall profits but does impact our margins. Gross margins and operating margins are negatively impacted during periods of high lumber prices; conversely, we experience margin improvement when lumber prices are relatively low.

BUSINESS COMBINATIONS

We completed two business acquisitions during the first three months of 2021 and five during all of 2020. The annual historical sales attributable to acquisitions completed in the first three months of 2021 is approximately $708 million, while acquisitions completed from April through December 2020 have annual sales of approximately $79 million. These business combinations were not significant to our quarterly results individually or in aggregate and thus pro forma results for 2021 and 2020 are not presented.

See Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, Note F, “Business Combinations” for additional information.

As a result of the impact of the level of lumber prices on the percentages displayed in the table above (see Impact of the Lumber Market on Our Operating Results), we believe it is useful to compare our change in units sold with our change in gross profits, selling, general, and administrative expenses, and operating profits as presented in the following table. The percentages displayed below represent the percentage change from the prior year.

Operating Results by Segment:

Our business segments align with the following markets: UFP Retail Solutions, UFP Construction and UFP Industrial. The Company manages the operations of its individual locations primarily through a market-centered reporting structure under which each location is included in a business unit and business units are included in our Retail, Industrial, and Construction segments. In the case of locations which serve multiple segments, results are allocated and accounted for by segment. The exception to this market-centered reporting and management structure is the Company’s International segment, which comprises our Mexico, Canada, and Australia operations and sales and purchasing offices in other parts of the world. Our International segment and Ardellis (our insurance captive) have been included in the “All Other” column of the table below. The “Corporate” column includes purchasing, transportation and administrative functions that serve our operating segments. Operating results of Corporate primarily consists of over (under) allocated costs. The operating results of UFP Real Estate, Inc., which owns and leases real estate, and UFP Transportation Ltd., which owns and leases transportation equipment, are also included in the Corporate column. An inter-company lease charge is assessed to our operating segments for the use of these assets at fair market value rates.

NET SALES

We primarily design, manufacture and market wood and wood-alternative products for national home centers and other retailers, structural lumber and other products for the manufactured housing industry, engineered wood components for residential and commercial construction, customized interior fixtures used in a variety of retail stores, commercial, and other structures, and specialty wood packaging, components and packing materials for various industries. Our strategic long-term sales objectives include:

Maximizing unit sales growth while achieving return on investment goals. The following table presents estimates, for the periods indicated, of our percentage change in net sales which were attributable to changes in overall selling prices versus changes in units shipped.

Diversifying our end market sales mix by increasing sales of specialty wood and protective packaging to industrial users, increasing our penetration of the concrete forming market, increasing our sales of engineered wood components for custom home, multi-family, military and light commercial construction, increasing our market share with independent retailers, and increasing our sales of customized interior fixtures, casework and millwork used in a variety of commercial markets.
Expanding geographically in our core businesses, domestically and internationally.
Increasing our sales of "value-added" products and enhancing our product offering with new or improved products. Value-added products generally consist of fencing, decking, lattice, and other specialty products sold to the retail market, specialty wood packaging, engineered wood components, customized interior fixtures, and "wood alternative" products. Engineered wood components include roof trusses, wall panels, and floor systems. Wood alternative products consist of products manufactured with wood and non-wood composites, metal, and plastics. Although we consider the treatment of dimensional lumber and panels with certain chemical preservatives a value-added process, treated lumber is not presently included in the value-added sales totals. Remanufactured lumber and panels that are components of finished goods are also generally categorized as “commodity-based” products. The following table presents, for the periods indicated, our percentage of value-added and commodity-based sales to total sales by our segments (Retail, Industrial, Construction, All Other and Corporate).

The increase in our ratio of commodity-based product sales to total sales reflected in the table above is primarily due to the impact of dramatically higher lumber prices in the first quarter of 2021 as the selling prices of these products are generally indexed to the current Lumber Market at the time they are shipped and lumber costs comprise a much higher percentage of the selling price than they do for value-added products. The acquisition of Sunbelt also contributed to the increase in commodity-based sales of treated lumber in our retail segment, while PalletOne contributed to the increase in value-added sales in the industrial segment. Our unit sales of value-added products increased approximately 30% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020, including an 18% contribution from acquisitions and 12% organic growth. Our unit sales of commodity-based products increased approximately 41%, including a 34% contribution from acquisitions and 7% organic growth.

Developing new products. We define new products as those that will generate sales of at least a $1 million per year within 4 years of launch and are still growing and gaining market penetration. New product sales and gross profits in the first quarter were up 58% and 57%, respectively. Approximately $4 million of new product sales for the first three months of 2020, respectively, while still sold, were sunset in 2021 and excluded from the table below because they no longer meet the definition above. Our goal is to achieve annual new product sales of at least $575 million in 2021. The table below presents new product sales in thousands:

Table of Contents

UFP INDUSTRIES, INC.

Retail Segment

Net sales in the first quarter of 2021 increased approximately 116% compared to the same period of 2020, due to a 19% increase in organic unit sales, a 56% increase in selling prices, and a 41% increase in unit sales due to acquisitions. Our organic unit growth was primarily driven by a 64% increase in Deckorators composite decking and railing, a 30% increase in our Handprint Home & Décor products including project panels and short lumber, a 28% increase in Outdoor Essentials Fence, Lawn & Garden products, and a 24% increase in our UFP Edge siding, pattern, and trim products. Our new product sales contributed to these increases and were up 52% for the quarter. Finally, our sales to big box customers increased 118%, and sales to other independent retailers increased 112%. Our organic unit sales increases were primarily due to an increase in demand as consumers continue to invest in home improvement activities over other alternatives. We believe this consumer demand trend is largely due to the impact of the pandemic. Lastly, approximately $8 million of sales to customers that distribute products for concrete forming were transferred from the construction segment to the retail segment. This change in structure was made so the personnel in our construction segment can more effectively focus their efforts on the design, manufacturing and sales of assembled forms and other value-added products for concrete forming.

Gross profits increased by $55.2 million, or 122.1% to $100.5 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period last year. Our increase in gross profit was comprised of the following:

Increased unit sales and leveraging fixed costs of value-added products within our Deckorators, Outdoor Essentials, and Handprint business units contributed $8.9 of additional gross profit.
Our Retail Building Materials and ProWood business units contributed $10.5 million and $25.6 million, respectively, to the increase. These increases are primarily due to unit sales growth, inventory positioning, and the favorable trend of rising lumber prices as the selling prices of these products are primarily determined on a variable price formula.
Acquisitions contributed $10.4 million to the increase.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased by approximately $17.5 million, or 59.0%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020. The SG&A of recently acquired businesses contributed $3.4 million to the increase. Accrued bonus expense, which varies with our overall profitability and return on investment, increased approximately $10.4 million and totaled approximately $14.0 million for the quarter. The remaining increase was primarily due to increases in salaries and wages and sales compensation, which were offset by decreases in travel related expenses.

Earnings from operations for the Retail reportable segment increased in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020 by $38.0 million, or 245%, well in excess of our 60% increase in total unit sales as a result of the factors above.

Industrial Segment

Net sales in the first quarter of 2021 increased 75% compared to the same period of 2020, due to a 5% increase in organic unit sales, a 38% increase in selling prices attributable to the Lumber Market, and a 32% increase in unit sales from recent acquisitions.

Gross profits increased by $36.4 million, or 82.9%, for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period last year. Acquisitions contributed $13.4 million to the increase in gross profit. The remaining increase was primarily due to organic unit sales growth and leveraging fixed costs and favorable changes in product mix of value-added products. In addition, we were able to maintain our profit per unit by more effectively passing on commodity lumber price increases in our selling prices.

Table of Contents

UFP INDUSTRIES, INC.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased by approximately $14.3 million, or 55.3%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020. Acquired operations since the first quarter of 2020 contributed approximately $5.7 million to our increase in costs. Accrued bonus expense, which varies with our overall profitability and return on investment, increased approximately $6.5 million, and totaled $10.7 million for the quarter. The remaining increase was primarily due to increases in salaries and wages and sales compensation, which were offset by decreases in travel related expenses.

Earnings from operations for the Industrial reportable segment increased in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020 by $22.3 million, or 123.6%, due to the factors discussed above.

Construction Segment

Net sales in the first quarter of 2021 increased 47% compared to the same period of 2020, due to unit growth of 8% (including 2% from acquisitions) and a 39% increase in selling prices attributable to the Lumber Market. Unit changes within this segment consisted of increases of 21% in site-built construction and 15% in factory-built housing, offset by a 9% decline in commercial construction and a 40% decrease in concrete forming. The transfer of approximately $8 million in sales to the retail segment from the construction segment discussed above contributed to the unit decline in the concrete forming business unit.

Gross profits increased by $25.3 million, or 40.0% to $88.7 million for the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020. The increase in our gross profit was comprised of the following factors:

Gross profits in our site-built construction business unit increased by $12.3 million due to unit sales growth and leveraging fixed costs. In addition, we were able to maintain our profit per unit by more effectively passing on commodity lumber price increases in our selling prices.
The impact of rising lumber prices on variable priced products contributed $12.7 million in gross profit in our factory-built housing and concrete forming business units as a result of increased unit sales and leveraging fixed costs and the impact of rising lumber prices on products sold with a variable price.
Acquired businesses contributed $1.5 million.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses increased by approximately $9.2 million, or 19.7%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020, while we reported an 8% increase in unit sales. Acquired operations since the first quarter of 2020 contributed approximately $1.9 million to total SG&A expenses for the quarter. Accrued bonus expense, which varies with our overall profitability and return on investment, increased approximately $5.5 million, and totaled $9.0 million for the quarter. The remaining increase was primarily due to increases in salaries and wages and sales compensation, which were offset by decreases in travel related expenses.

Earnings from operations for the Construction reportable segment increased in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020 by $15.9 million, or 92.7%, due to the factors mentioned above.

INCOME TAXES

Effective tax rates differ from statutory federal income tax rates, primarily due to provisions for foreign, state and local income taxes and permanent tax differences. Our effective tax rate was 23.3% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 24.7% for same period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to an anticipated decrease in our U.S. tax rate and a variety of other discrete tax items, none of which are individually significant.

In general, we funded our growth in the past through a combination of operating cash flows, our revolving credit facility, industrial development bonds (when circumstances permit), and issuance of long-term notes payable at times when interest rates are favorable. We have not issued equity to finance growth except in the case of a large acquisition. We manage our capital structure by attempting to maintain a targeted ratio of debt to equity and debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe this is one of many important factors to maintaining a strong credit profile, which in turn helps ensure timely access to capital when needed.

Seasonality has a significant impact on our working capital due to our primary selling season which occurs during the period from March to September. Consequently, our working capital increases during our first and second quarters which typically results in negative or modest cash flows from operations during those periods. Conversely, we typically experience a substantial decrease in working capital once we move beyond our peak selling season which typically results in significant cash flows from operations in our third and fourth quarters. As explained in more detail below, the unusually large increase in lumber prices this year, as well as the significant increase in sales attributable to our Retail segment, resulted in a more significant increase in net working capital this year relative to prior years.

Due to the seasonality of our business and the effects of the Lumber Market, we believe our cash cycle (days of sales outstanding plus days supply of inventory less days payables outstanding) is a good indicator of our working capital management. As indicated in the table below, our cash cycle improved to 48 days from 59 days in the prior year period.

The decrease in our days sales outstanding is a result of better focus on timely collection efforts in all of our segments. The decrease in our days supply of inventory for the first three months of 2021 was primarily due to strong market demand and certain supply constraints, which contributed to higher inventory turns in the first quarter of 2021.

In the first three months of 2021, our cash consumed by operating activities was $196.7 million, which was comprised of net earnings of $104.3 million and $24.1 million of non-cash expenses, offset by a $325.1 million increase in working capital since the end of December 2020. Our operating cash flow this year declined by $150.5 million compared to the same period of last year primarily due to an increase in our seasonal investment in net working capital since the end of 2020, compared to the prior year period. This increase was due to unusually high lumber prices and increased market demand and net sales in each of our segments. PalletOne also contributed to the increase in our seasonal investment in net working capital.

Acquisitions and purchases of property, plant, and equipment comprised most of our cash used in investing activities during the first three months of 2021 and totaled $261.1 million and $34.7 million, respectively. Outstanding purchase commitments on existing capital projects totaled approximately $41.3 million on March 27, 2021. Capital spending primarily consists of several projects to expand manufacturing capacity to serve retail, industrial and construction customers and achieve efficiencies through automation, make improvements to a number of facilities, and increase our transportation capacity (tractors, trailers) in order to meet higher volumes and replace old rolling stock. We intend to fund capital expenditures and purchase commitments through our operating cash flows for the balance of the year. We currently plan to spend approximately $115.5 million on capital projects for the year. Notable areas of capital spending include projects to increase the capacity and efficiency of our plants that produce our Deckorators mineral-based composite decking and wood-plastic composite decking, and our UFP Edge siding, pattern and trim products.

Cash flows from financing activities primarily consisted of net borrowings of debt of approximately $115 million, the payment of quarterly dividends totaling $9.3 million ($0.15 per share), and distributions to noncontrolling interests of $2.9 million.

On March 27, 2021, we had $119.4 million outstanding on our $550 million revolving credit facility, and we had approximately $423.5 million in remaining availability after considering $7.1 million in outstanding letters of credit. Financial covenants on the unsecured revolving credit facility and unsecured notes include minimum interest tests and a maximum leverage ratio. The agreements also restrict the amount of additional indebtedness we may incur and the amount of assets which may be sold. We were in compliance with all our covenant requirements on March 27, 2021.

At the end of the first quarter of 2021 we have approximately $420.8 million in total liquidity, consisting of our cash surplus and remaining availability under our revolving credit facility. We plan to use a portion of this amount to fund our future growth, including the purchase of Spartanburg Forest Products, Walnut Hollow, and Endurable Building Products.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

In preparing our consolidated financial statements, we follow accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These principles require us to make certain estimates and apply judgments that affect our financial position and results of operations. We continually review our accounting policies and financial information disclosures. There have been no material changes in our policies or estimates since December 26, 2020.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

We are exposed to market risks related to fluctuations in interest rates on our variable rate debt, which consists of a revolving credit facility and industrial development revenue bonds. We do not currently use interest rate swaps, futures contracts or options on futures, or other types of derivative financial instruments to mitigate this risk.

For fixed rate debt, changes in interest rates generally affect the fair market value, but not earnings or cash flows. Conversely, for variable rate debt, changes in interest rates generally do not influence fair market value, but do affect future earnings and cash flows. We do not have an obligation to prepay fixed rate debt prior to maturity, and as a result, interest rate risk and changes in fair market value should not have a significant impact on such debt until we would be required to refinance it.

We are subject to fluctuations in the price of lumber. We experience significant fluctuations in the cost of commodity lumber products from primary producers (the “Lumber Market”). A variety of factors over which we have no control, including government regulations, transportation, environmental regulations, weather conditions, economic conditions, and natural disasters, impact the cost of lumber products and our selling prices. While we attempt to minimize our risk from severe price fluctuations, substantial, prolonged trends in lumber prices can affect our sales volume, our gross margins, and our profitability. We anticipate that these fluctuations will continue in the future. (See “Impact of the Lumber Market on Our Operating Results.”)

Our international operations have exposure to foreign currency rate risks, primarily due to fluctuations in their local currency, which is their functional currency, compared to the U.S. Dollar. Additionally, certain of our operations enter into transactions that will be settled in a currency other than the U.S. Dollar. We may enter into forward foreign exchange rate contracts in the future to mitigate foreign currency exchange risk. Historically, our hedge contracts are deemed immaterial to the financial statements, however any material hedge contract in the future will be disclosed.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

(a)Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. With the participation of management, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a – 15e and 15d – 15e) as of the quarter ended March 27, 2021 (the “Evaluation Date”), have concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.
(b)Changes in Internal Controls. During the quarter ended March 27, 2021, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting, except for the implementation of a control to address the material weakness in control over our share-based bonus awards disclosed in our 2020 Form 10-K, which was remediated in the first quarter of 2021.
