Q1 2022 Highlights

  • Q1 2022 revenues reaching $24.4 million, increasing 1.6% quarter-over-quarter and 16.8% year-over-year.
  • Q1 2022 Pro revenue reached $18.7 million, representing 76.6% of total revenue at the quarter end. Pro revenues grew 14.7% quarter-over-quarter due to increased strategic focus on driving Pro market share.
  • Gross profit at $8.7 million in Q1 2022, an increase of 15.4% over the previous quarter, and 18.1% year-over-year
  • Gross margin in Q1 2022 increased by 430bps to 35.8% compared to Q4 2021. The positive impact of price increases on margins was slightly offset due to lower margins from the Superb acquisition.
  • Adjusted EBITDA in Q1 2022 reached $0.1 million. BuildDirect achieved break even adjusted EBITDA primarily by reallocating resources to the Pro market.
  • In February 2022, the Company closed a secured debt financing pursuant to which it issued, via its wholly owned subsidiary BuildDirect Operations Limited, secured notes to Pelecanus Investments Ltd., Lyra Growth Partners Inc., and Beedie Investments Ltd. in an aggregated amount of US $3 million.

Post-Quarter Highlight

  • On April 4, 2022, BuildDirect announced that it appointed Eyal Ofir to its Board of Directors, and that John Farlinger and Andrew Elbaz had stepped down from their roles as Directors of the Board.

Ethan Rudin, CFO of BuildDirect said, “To execute on our strategy, we will continue to invest in the Pro market, extract financial and operational synergies from our acquisitions, and leverage our heavyweight omnichannel business model to drive Pro market share. Moving forward into the remainder of 2022, we expect to maintain positive adjusted EBITDA as Pro customer sector trends look set to continue.”

Actual results may differ materially from BuildDirect’s financial outlook as a result of, among other things, the factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

NON-IFRS MEASURES

We define EBITDA as net income or loss before interest, income taxes and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA removes fair value adjustment of convertible debt and warrants, fair value adjustment of inventory, restructuring expenses, non-recurring bad debt expense, foreign exchange gains and losses, and share-based compensation items from EBITDA. We are presenting these measures because we believe that our current and potential investors, and many analysts, use them to assess our current and future operating results and to make investment decisions. Management uses these measures in managing the business and making decisions. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not intended as substitutes for IFRS measures.

1The adjustment for the impact of the fair value of FloorSource & Superb inventory relates to the impact on normal selling profit from the fact that IFRS requires that the inventory be recorded at fair value on acquisition and not at FloorSource and Superb’s historical cost. Earnings are impacted as this inventory was sold in the period. 

2The adjustment is a non-recurring activity, relating to a provision for an advance made to a former employee, which was deemed uncollectible in 2021.
