Control-M Workbench supports Digital Business Automation, which BMC believes is a new adaptive approach to IT automation that simplifies managing hybrid multi-cloud environments. DevOps Accelerates with Jobs-as-Code The movement of testing, monitoring, automation, and policy compliance earlier in the development lifecycle is often referred to as a shift left strategy, and it is a key enabler of accelerating digital service innovation. With a Jobs-as-Code approach, developers can code business application automation directly into the delivery pipeline using their current DevOps tools and shift left enterprise automation for business applications. By giving developers direct access to Control-M, the market-leading workload automation solution, operations receives tested, production-ready applications to advance the business. When using this approach and leveraging Control-M Workbench, organizations can: Closer collaboration between development and operations "Our research repeatedly finds that the companies most successful at promoting high-quality collaboration between Dev and Ops are those most likely to see exceptional revenue growth. Still, it is too often the case that new applications and services are signed off and 'tossed over the wall' for Operations to deal with and maintain," said Julie Craig of Enterprise Management Associates (EMA.) "The Jobs-as-Code concept supports the 'shift left' trend in terms of work stream specification so that the steps required to execute a given job become part of the code itself."1 Control-M Workbench fosters skill-sharing and collaboration between development and operations. This new capability gives developers access to build, test, and debug batch automation in a sandbox environment, and seamlessly integrate with their preferred Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tools and methods, including JSON, Git, Jenkins, and others. BMC customer Carfax has adopted this new DevOps approach with developers across varying applications. "A Jobs-as-Code approach is paramount for anyone doing agile development and DevOps," said Robert Stinnett, Automation Analyst, IT Operations at Carfax. "We have been using Control-M for years in operations, and now the product gives our developers full ownership and control of their jobs in a coding environment that is familiar to them, so they can define the business processes they want to automate in production." "The key to being agile in a multi-cloud environment is for companies to adapt to the challenges posed by diverse infrastructure, disparate data, and accelerated applications to deliver true Digital Business Automation. One of these specific challenges is better collaboration in the Dev to Ops application hand-off process," said Gur Steif, president, digital business automation at BMC. "With our latest innovation, Control-M Workbench, developers and DevOps engineers can shift left and deliver applications faster and with better quality to drive business growth and a competitive advantage."

Lidl's U.S. opening and Aldi's recently announced $3.4 billion expansion have a lot of retailers strategizing how they'll compete with the discounters. Considering Aldi and Lidl's low-price advantages, many grocers' first response may be to cut prices throughout their stores. However, according to the report from Brick Meets Click, the hard discounters will always win. As Bill Bishop, chief architect at Brick Meets Click, told Food Dive, it’s better to study Lidl’s pricing carefully, then discount those products that will have the most impact. “If someone knew with precision what Lidl prices were resonating most powerfully and went right at those prices, instead of dropping 400 prices they may be able to drop four or 40,” Bishop told Food Dive. The BMC webinar report also notes that Aldi and Lidl’s assortments have evolved significantly over the years, with more high-impact products that can offset their limited selection. The discounters carry between 1,500 and 2,000 items compared to 30,000 at a typical supermarket. Within each retailer’s mix, too, are products that deliver surprisingly high gross margins, including those under Aldi’s Specialty Selected brand, which make twice the profit per ounce of a standard Aldi product. Other important facts about the fast-growing discounters include their total-store approach to management rather than a category-focused one, and their high level of service despite having fewer employees than a traditional grocer. Bishop said that Lidl employees, for instance, are trained extensively in customer care as well as how to work jobs throughout the store. This gives them a more complete understanding of storewide operations. Overall, the report noted, the growth of Aldi and Lidl is ushering in a new era of discount retailing — one that stands to dramatically impact the industry. Many consumers are going to take a close look at their grocers in comparison to these competitors, while retailers will be under pressure to remove costs that don’t add value to their business.

ATLANTA, March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BMC Stock Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:BMCH) (“BMC” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s leading providers of diversified building products and services in the U.S. residential construction market, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016. On December 1, 2015, Stock Building Supply Holdings, Inc. (“SBS”) completed its merger transaction (the “Merger”) with Building Material Holdings Corporation (“Legacy BMC”).  As a result of the Merger, current year results reported pursuant to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) are not comparable to prior year periods.  For a more detailed explanation, see the “Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results - Basis of Presentation” section of this press release.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures” section of this press release. Commenting on the Company’s 2016 performance, Peter Alexander, President and Chief Executive Officer of BMC stated, “Our Merger, which we completed a little more than a year ago, unlocked numerous opportunities to expand the business and improve profitability.  During 2016, we achieved strong operational and financial results including significant gains in operating margins and cash generation.  Net sales in 2016 increased 96% as compared to the prior year, and 10.5% when compared to 2015 Adjusted net sales.  Net income in 2016 increased to $30.9 million while Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 170 basis points as compared to 2015.” “In addition,” Mr. Alexander continued, “we made significant strides on our integration efforts and technology initiatives, including the achievement of $31 million in cost synergy savings in our 2016 operating results.  Also, during the year, we rolled out ReadyFrame®, our differentiated whole-house framing solution that assists professional builders and contractors to reduce their labor needs and shorten cash conversion cycles, to the remainder of our major markets.  This product offering grew more than 46% during 2016 to over $100 million in sales.  With a remarkably strong team in place and what I believe are the best products and solutions available to professional builders and remodelers in the residential homebuilding space, I am very optimistic about our prospects for 2017 and beyond.” Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results - Basis of Presentation The Merger was accounted for as a “reverse acquisition” under the acquisition method of accounting, with SBS treated as the legal acquirer and Legacy BMC treated as the acquirer for accounting purposes.  As such, the Company has accounted for the Merger by using the Legacy BMC historical information and accounting policies and adding the assets and liabilities of SBS as of the completion date of the Merger at their estimated fair values.  As a result, current year results reported pursuant to GAAP are not comparable to prior year periods. For informational purposes only, the Company has furnished certain Adjusted financial information for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, and the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2015.  The prior year Adjusted financial information combines the historical results of Legacy BMC and SBS for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2015.  The Adjusted financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is based upon information and assumptions deemed appropriate by the Company’s management.  This Adjusted financial information is not necessarily indicative of what the Company’s results actually would have been had the Merger been completed as of January 1, 2015.  In addition, this Adjusted financial information is not indicative of future results or current financial conditions and does not reflect any anticipated synergies, operating efficiencies, cost savings or integration costs that have resulted or may result in the future from the Merger.  All Adjusted financial information should be read in conjunction with separate historical financial statements and accompanying notes filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  A reconciliation of Adjusted financial measures to GAAP financial measures is provided in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures” section of the press release. Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Summary of Financial Results During the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016, the Company generated solid operating result improvements and continued to make substantial progress on its Merger integration plan. Total liquidity as of December 31, 2016 was approximately $283.2 million, which included cash and cash equivalents of $8.9 million and $274.3 million of borrowing availability under the Company’s asset-backed revolver.  Capital expenditures during the fourth quarter and full year of 2016 totaled $11.9 million and $38.1 million, respectively.  These expenditures were primarily used to fund purchases of vehicles and equipment to support increased sales volume and replace aged assets, and facility and technology investments to support our operations.  In addition, the Company acquired approximately $6.6 million of assets during the fourth quarter and $15.1 million of assets during the full year 2016 under capital lease arrangements, consisting primarily of material handling equipment. “We are well-positioned to capitalize on the steady growth we expect in the residential construction markets we serve,” said Mr. Alexander. “Our innovative approach to improving productivity and efficiency for our customers, our broad selection of value-added offerings, and our solid financial position set BMC apart from our competitors and create multiple avenues to drive future shareholder value.  Compared to the mild weather we enjoyed during the first quarter of 2016, we have experienced more normal seasonal trends during the first two months of 2017.  However, we also believe that underlying demand remains robust and will support another solid year of organic growth for 2017.  With a large portion of our Merger integration efforts behind us, we are increasing our efforts to accelerate our growth strategy both through organic and inorganic means.  We will continue to target opportunities that further enhance our value-added product offerings and/or expand our geographic footprint into attractive markets.” BMC will host a conference call on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time and will simultaneously broadcast it live over the Internet.  The conference call can be accessed by dialing 877-407-0784 (domestic) or 201-689-8560 (international).  A telephonic replay will be available approximately three hours after the call and can be accessed by dialing 844-512-2921, or for international callers, 412-317-6671.  The passcode for both the live call and the replay is 13652791.  The telephonic replay will be available until 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on March 8, 2017.  The live webcast of the conference call can be accessed on the Company’s investor relations website at ir.buildwithbmc.com and will be available for approximately 90 days. This press release presents Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of applicable SEC rules and regulations.

BMC STOCK HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures (unaudited) Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income are intended as supplemental measures of the Company’s performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP.  The Company believes that Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and operating results. Company management uses Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income for trend analyses, for purposes of determining management incentive compensation and for budgeting and planning purposes.  Adjusted net sales and Adjusted EBITDA are used in monthly financial reports prepared for management and the board of directors.  The Company believes that the use of Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income provide additional tools for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other distribution and retail companies, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.  However, the Company’s calculation of Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  Company management does not consider Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income in isolation or as alternatives to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.  The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements.  Some of these limitations are: (i) Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; (ii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on debt; (iii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax expenses or the cash requirements to pay taxes; (iv) Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect historical cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments; (v) although depreciation and amortization charges are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements and (vi) Adjusted net income and Adjusted EBITDA do not consider the potentially dilutive impact of issuing non-cash stock-based compensation.  In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents Adjusted net sales, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income in conjunction with GAAP results.  Readers should review the reconciliations of net sales to Adjusted net sales, net income to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net income below, and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.
