NCI Building Systems Announces Update to Impact from Storms

HOUSTON, October 18, 2017 – NCI Building Systems, Inc. (NYSE: NCS) (“NCI” or the “Company”) today announced an update to guidance from the impact of multiple hurricanes across the southern and eastern parts of the United States.

“At the time of our third quarter earnings call, with limited visibility on the impact of Hurricane Harvey, we had estimated that fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA would be negatively impacted by $3 to $8 million. Since that time, we have seen the subsequent storms create a further dampening effect on our near-term business, as customers delay orders to assess job site readiness. We now estimate that fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA will be negatively impacted by $7 to $10 million as a collective result of those major storms," said Donald R. Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Although these storms have revised the fourth quarter results to the lower end of our Adjusted EBITDA range, customer sentiment overall remains positive and while it cannot be assured, it is generally expected that orders that are currently postponed or deferred will contribute to 2018 full-year results.”
