Beacon Roofing reports Q2 adjusted EPS (45c), consensus (51c)
Reports Q2 revenue $1.43B, consensus $1.38B. The company said, "We produced positive organic sales growth, highlighted by a daily sales increase of nearly 5% in residential roofing, despite the harsh weather adversely impacting quarterly demand (as noted in our March 25 press release). In an effort to help mitigate the challenging weather patterns, we were able to implement more aggressive late-quarter cost controls to match the unusually soft seasonal environment. We once again exhibited attractive price-cost performance in the second quarter, as we have done in each of the past four quarters. Importantly, the winter is now behind us and existing market sales accelerated the last several weeks of March, and that momentum has continued into April. Through key initiatives, including digital, private label, and complementary products, coupled with new branch openings, we are continuing to expand our competitive advantage in the marketplace. We remain firmly committed to reaching our long-term sales and margin objectives."
