Boise Cascade Company reported net income of $218.1 million, or $5.49 per share, on sales of $2.3 billion for the 2Q ended June 30, 2022, compared with net income of $302.6 million, or $7.62 per share, on sales of $2.4 billion for the 2Q ended June 30, 2021.

Wood Products

Wood Products' sales, including sales to Building Materials Distribution (BMD), decreased $58.6 million, or 10%, to $536.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $594.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in sales was driven primarily by lower sales prices and sales volumes for plywood and lower sales volumes for I-joists and LVL (collectively referred to as EWP). These decreases were offset partially by higher sales prices for EWP.

Wood Products' segment income decreased $59.7 million to $154.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $213.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in segment income was due primarily to lower plywood sales prices and higher per-unit labor, wood fiber, and other manufacturing costs due in part to lower plywood and EWP sales volumes. These decreases in segment income were offset partially by higher EWP sales prices.

Building Materials Distribution

BMD's sales decreased $41.5 million, or 2%, to $2,131.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $2,172.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. Compared with the same quarter in the prior year, the overall decrease in sales was driven by a sales volume decrease of 4%, offset partially by a sales price increase of 2%. By product line, commodity sales decreased 27%, general line product sales increased 24%, and sales of EWP (substantially all of which are sourced through our Wood Products segment) increased 59%.

BMD segment income decreased $52.0 million to $154.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, from $206.3 million in the comparative prior year quarter. The decrease in segment income was driven by lower sales volumes and a gross margin decrease of $44.5 million, resulting from a decline in commodity prices during the 2Q 2022. However, the negative impacts from commodity price declines were offset partially by margin improvements for both EWP and general line products. In addition, general and administrative and selling and distribution expenses increased $3.3 million and $2.0 million, respectively.

“We recently completed the acquisition of Coastal Plywood Company, and I am pleased to welcome our new associates to the Boise Cascade team. The acquisition represents a major step forward in supporting the growth of our EWP capacity and further leveraging our integrated business model. We are focused on successfully integrating the new operations into our system,” commented Nate Jorgensen, CEO. “Both of our businesses continued to operate well during the second quarter, and our financial results reflect that fact. Economic uncertainty and expectations of softening demand for new residential construction are a reality as we move through the balance of the year. However, our balance sheet remains strong and flexible, and I am confident in our ability to effectively adjust to the economic landscape ahead while still executing upon our organic growth plans.”

Boise Cascade Company is one of the largest producers of engineered wood products and plywood in North America and a leading U.S. wholesale distributor of building products.
