PART I. ITEM 1. BUSINESS BMC West Corporation ("BMC West" or the "Company") is a leading regional distributor and retailer of building materials in the Western United States, selling primarily to professional contractors, as well as to project-oriented consumers. In addition to distributing products from manufacturers, the Company conducts value-added conversion activities which include pre-hanging doors, fabricating roof trusses, pre-assembling windows and pre-cutting lumber to meet customer specifications. The Company operates 53 building materials centers located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington. Value-added activities are conducted at 41 separate facilities, most of which are located at building materials sites. BMC West targets primarily the professional contractor market, which is a strategy distinct from that pursued by the high-volume, consumer-oriented home center retailers now found throughout the United States. The Company's professional contractor market consists of persons engaged principally in the construction of single-family homes and, to a lesser extent, multi-family units and light commercial and industrial construction. Professional contractors generally are large-volume, repeat customers requiring certainty of product availability and delivery and a number of specialized services typically not offered by home center retailers. The Company also targets the repair and remodel market which consists generally of project-oriented consumers and contractors hired by them, who engage primarily in substantial projects such as room additions, kitchen or bathroom remodeling and fence or deck installations. BMC West develops long-term relationships with its customers by providing them with a broad range of high-quality products and services. Each of the Company's building materials centers tailors its product and service mix to meet the demands of the local market. The Company's products, which include lumber, panel products, roofing materials, pre-hung doors, roof trusses, pre-assembled windows, cabinets, hardware, paint and tools, are used primarily for new residential construction, light commercial construction and repair and remodeling projects. These products are sold by experienced professionals consisting of both field sales personnel and facility based sales and support personnel. The Company offers its customers various services, including assistance with project designs and materials specifications, coordination of delivery of orders to job sites, provision of credit to pre-approved contractors and referral of retail customers to pre-qualified contractors. Complete home packages (delivered to the sites of the Company's builder customers according to their construction schedules) account for a significant amount of BMC West's total sales. In each of the last three years, professional contractors accounted for approximately 75% to 77% of net sales, and project-oriented consumers accounted for approximately 22% to 24% of net sales. On February 10, 1997, the Company announced that its existing operations will become a subsidiary of a newly formed holding company The Company believes that by creating the holding company it can centralize its responsibilities of managing regional locations and day-to-day operations and assign the holding company the responsibilities of financial and strategic management.

INDUSTRY OVERVIEW The building materials distribution industry is characterized by its substantial size, highly fragmented ownership structure and dependence on the cyclical and seasonal construction industry. Building materials distributors generally concentrate on serving either service-oriented professional contractors or price-oriented retail consumers. Contractor-oriented building materials distributors, such as BMC West, tend to focus on contractors and project-oriented consumers and compete principally on the basis of service, product quality and availability, on-time delivery, credit availability and reliability, as well as price. Home center retailers, on the other hand, target the mass consumer market, in which competition is based principally on price, merchandising, location and cooperative advertising. Typically, contractor-oriented distributors offer a greater range of services and a wider variety of high quality building products than home center retailers. The contractor-oriented building materials distribution industry is characterized by a large number of privately owned, small, regional distribution companies and single-site enterprises. These businesses are typically family run, relationship-based operations which focus on offering service, delivery and reliability to their customers. As a result of their size, many of these businesses do not possess sophisticated working capital management and control systems and generally lack the purchasing expertise of a large entity, such as BMC West. Because of these factors, the Company believes that these businesses include a number of attractive acquisition candidates. The building materials distribution industry is closely linked to the economic cycles and seasonality associated with the construction industry. The Company monitors the issuance of new housing permits as an important indicator of its potential future sales volume. Construction expenditures are largely a function of new residential, commercial and industrial building demand and repair and remodeling projects undertaken. Residential construction is closely linked to new job formation, household formation, interest rates, housing affordability, availability of mortgage financing, regional demographics and consumer confidence. Commercial construction is significantly affected by vacancy and absorption rates, interest rates, long-term regional economic outlooks and the availability of financing. Industrial construction expenditures are linked to the industrial economic outlook, corporate profitability, interest rates and capacity utilization. In difficult economic environments, repair and remodeling expenditures generally represent a greater percentage of housing construction expenditures as new housing starts decline. BMC West centers target participants in all of these sectors, although economic conditions frequently dictate which sector they may emphasize at a given time. A key attribute of the contractor-oriented building materials distribution industry is that professional contractors typically use the same building materials supplier for all of their projects. In order to generate and maintain this loyalty, suppliers generally focus on providing the professional contractor with service, quality, on-time delivery and value-added services. GEOGRAPHIC MARKETS The Company believes that it is well positioned in some of the most attractive markets for building materials in the United States. Population and migration trends in the Western markets served by 2
10-K4055th Page of 34TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 5th
BMC West, as well as the relative strength of many of the local economies it serves, have resulted in the growth of residential housing in these markets at rates faster than the United States as a whole. BMC West operates centers in 8 of the top 10 fastest growing states over the last five years, based upon U.S. Bureau of the Census estimates. In addition, according to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the Company's 12-state market area is forecast to outpace the rest of the country in its rate of population growth between 1995 and 2000. The Company believes that these population and migration trends provide a foundation for continued growth. Furthermore, BMC West's 53 building materials centers operate in eighteen distinct regional markets, which collectively have a diverse economic base of manufacturing, agricultural, recreational and service-based industries. The Company believes that this geographical diversification lessens the impact on the Company of a downturn in any one of its regional markets. OPERATING STRATEGY BMC West's management has organized its 53 building materials centers as autonomous, decentralized units capable of meeting local market needs and offering competitive prices. Center managers have a substantial degree of control over inventory, merchandising and pricing, and can develop their own specific programs to meet the needs of their particular markets. The Company's decentralized, microcomputer based, point-of-sale information system provides each center manager with real-time pricing, inventory availability and margin analysis. At the same time, the Company provides centralized purchasing management, credit and financial controls, management information systems, and training and marketing support. The compensation of substantially all of the employees of each unit is based, in part, on the performance of the individual unit. BMC West believes that many of its building materials centers hold a first or second place market share among professional contractors and that the Company, as a whole, has the largest sales volume of any distributor of building materials serving primarily professional contractors in its 12-state market area. The Company intends to maintain its leadership position in these markets by continuing to provide a broad range of high-quality products and services to the professional contractor and the project-oriented consumer. The services provided by the Company include assisting customers with project designs and materials specifications, delivering orders to job sites, providing credit to pre-approved contractors, and referring retail customers to pre-qualified contractors. In addition to distributing products from manufacturers, the Company currently conducts value-added operations at 41 facilities (most of which are located at building materials sites) in eight states, as compared to 16 such facilities in six states at the end of 1991. Value-added facilities generally are constructed or acquired at or near a center and can service a sales area 35 to 45 miles in radius. The Company plans to introduce value-added products such as pre-hung doors, roof trusses and pre-assembled windows in more of the markets served by the Company. These products generally carry higher gross margins and have less price volatility than commodity wood products. The Company continues to enhance and broaden its customer services to include new programs and services developed by building materials center managers and corporate management. For example, at certain of its locations the Company conducts "How-To" seminars for consumers, 3
10-K4056th Page of 34TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 6th
refers retail customers to pre-qualified contractors and offers a private label credit card. BMC West's decentralized operating philosophy permits unit managers to respond to the needs of their local markets with creative new products and services. The Company continues to upgrade its consumer advertising and merchandising, particularly in smaller markets where it places more focus on project-oriented consumers. BMC West's total quality management program defines quality as providing the best products and services at the right place at the right time. The program provides an environment for employees to identify cost reduction and margin improvement opportunities, empowers all employees to make significant contributions and work together as a team, and measures BMC West's performance and follow through on improvement efforts. Quality teams at BMC West locations seek to make specific, measurable improvements in the Company's critical processes, including order processing, inventory control, delivery and customer assistance. These teams include employees from all functional areas and backgrounds. The Company supports this program through training and the sharing of ideas among locations. ACQUISITION STRATEGY BMC West continues to seek acquisitions of building materials centers and value-added facilities that serve the professional contractor and the project-oriented consumer in new and existing markets in the United States. The Company believes that the fragmented nature of its industry presents opportunities for additional acquisitions of strategically located building materials centers and value-added facilities. The management of BMC West has substantial experience in expanding building materials supply businesses through acquisitions. Over the past several years, the Company's management has contacted and visited many acquisition candidates in the western United States. In addition, the Company is contacted regularly by persons seeking to sell their business. The Company believes that, due to professional contractor loyalty to existing centers, the most expedient way for BMC West to enter new geographic markets is through acquisitions. The Company also believes that the availability of a public market for its common stock provides it with additional flexibility in pursuing acquisitions. While the Company evaluates each potential acquisition candidate on its individual merits, its primary objective has been to acquire profitable building materials centers that meet certain general criteria. The typical targeted acquisition candidate is located on a 5 to 10 acre site which includes 8,000 to 15,000 square feet of indoor showroom and contractor sales space and 20,000 to 50,000 square feet of covered storage area, with reasonable access to the local road system and proximity to regional areas of construction demand. Additional factors include the reputation of the center among local contractors and the quality of the center's management and sales organization. Typically, after an acquisition of a center, the Company enhances the center's sales and service capabilities and expands its product offerings, including value-added products, in an effort to increase sales. In addition, the Company seeks to implement its accounting and management systems into each newly acquired center. These systems assist in the effective management of the Company's inventories and accounts receivable and in efforts to improve customer service. BMC 4

West generally is able to use its centralized purchasing expertise to reduce product costs following new acquisitions. In 1996, the Company completed four acquisitions including one building materials center and three value-added facilities. The aggregate purchase price was $10,138,000, consisting of $8,426,000 cash and the assumption of notes payable for $1,712,000. The notes issued in connection with these acquisitions were paid by the company prior to December 31, 1996. The following chart sets forth the number of building materials centers acquired and consolidated by the Company during each of the last two fiscal years. Year Ended Year Ended Dec 31, 1996 Dec 31, 1995 ------------ ------------ Beginning balance 52 49 Acquisitions 1 4 Other* -- (1) ------ ------ Ending balance 53 52 ------ ------ ------ ------ *In 1995, the Company consolidated its Oakhurst and Fresno, California, centers. It is the Company's objective to continue to acquire complementary businesses. The Company continues to engage in discussions with potential acquisition candidates. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to continue to identify and complete successful acquisitions in the future. PRODUCTS Each BMC West unit carries a core of approximately 9,000 stock keeping units ("SKUs"), plus an average of an additional 6,000 SKUs, the product mix of which varies by location. The Company's principal products include lumber, panel products, roofing materials, pre-hung doors, roof trusses, pre-assembled windows, cabinets, hardware, paint and tools. In addition to distributing such products, the Company conducts value-added activities, which include pre-hanging doors, fabricating roof trusses, pre-assembling windows and pre-cutting lumber to meet customer specifications. The following table sets forth information regarding the percentage of net sales represented by the specified categories of products sold at the Company's centers during each of the last two fiscal years. While the Company believes that the percentages included in the table generally indicate the mix of the Company's sales by category of product, the specific percentages are affected year-to-year by changes in the prices of commodity wood products as well as changes in unit volumes sold. 5

Category of Product 1996 1995 ------------------- ---- ---- Wood products (lumber and panel products) 47% 47% Building materials(roofing, siding, insulation and steel) 25 23 Millwork/Value-added (pre-hung doors, trusses, windows & moldings) 20 18 Other (paint, hardware, tools, electrical and plumbing) 8 12 ---- ---- 100% 100% ---- ---- ---- ---- The Company fabricates roof trusses used to form roof support systems and pre-hung door units and pre-assembled window units for the residential and light commercial building markets. Door units are purchased and pre-assembled to contractor specifications using a variety of moldings. The door, truss and window product lines are particularly attractive since they generally bring higher margins, have less price volatility, and are not offered by many building materials centers or home center retailers. The Company believes that its ability to provide pre-hung doors, roof trusses and pre-assembled windows in a number of locations is a competitive advantage when soliciting business from contractors. Inventories of door units, roof trusses and pre-assembled windows are predominantly work-in-process, as these units are usually built-to-order. The Company's customers generally order products, including pre-hung doors, roof trusses, and pre-assembled windows on an as-needed basis. Therefore, virtually all product shipments in a given fiscal quarter result from orders received in that quarter. Consequently, order backlog represents only a very small percentage of the product sales anticipated by the Company in a given fiscal quarter and is not indicative of the Company's actual sales for any future fiscal period. As a distributor of building materials and products, the Company regularly monitors innovations in product design to meet its customers' needs. The Company test markets products that substitute for dimensional lumber and has for a number of years distributed alternative products such as engineered wood products and steel studs, and has provided its builder customers information and instruction on the use of such products. SALES AND MARKETING Each of BMC West's 53 building materials centers tailors its product and service mix to the local market and operates as a separate profit center. The Company reaches its professional contractor customers, mainly through field sales representatives, advertisements in trade journals and local promotional events. The Company's customers include a broad base of professional contractors and project-oriented consumers. No single customer accounted for more than 2% of net sales in 1996. PROFESSIONAL CONTRACTOR MARKET The professional contractor market is comprised of three major customer segments: two segments are the new housing contractors, and commercial and industrial contractors. The Company's sales to these professional contractors accounted for approximately 77% of net sales (this total includes 71% to new residential contractors and 6% to commercial and industrial contractors). Professional contractors accounted for approximately 75% to 77% of the Company's net sales in 6
10-K4059th Page of 34TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 9th
each of the last three years. A significant amount of this business consisted of sales of complete house packages, including framing lumber, panel products, pre-hung doors and trim packages, roof trusses, pre-assembled windows and other products required to construct or improve a home. BMC West provides a wide range of customer services to contractors to meet their needs for credit, delivery and expert assistance. While pricing is an important purchasing criterion for these customers, the Company believes that other factors such as coordinated, on-time deliveries, quality and availability of products, relationships with salespeople, credit availability and technical support are equally important. The Company believes that its skills in these areas are important competitive advantages. BMC West's principal channel for reaching the professional contractor market is a sales force of approximately 225 field sales representatives supported by approximately 191 facility-based salespeople. Field sales representatives actively solicit business and work with the facility-based managers to develop bids for contractor projects. The Company provides sales training for all sales representatives, and sales management training for all sales managers and center managers. Sales representatives are compensated through a combination of salary and commission based on individual sales volume and gross margin. BMC West's center managers ensure that building materials are delivered according to contractor specifications and schedules. Technical personnel involved in purchasing, dispatching, invoicing and credit, support both field sales force and center managers to enhance customer satisfaction. REPAIR AND REMODEL MARKET The third major customer segment is the repair and remodel market which consists generally of project-oriented consumers and professional repair and remodel contractors hired by them. The Company's sales to these customers accounted for approximately 22% of 1996 net sales and for approximately 22% to 24% of net sales in each of the last three years. The Company's sales to this market generally carry higher margins than sales to the professional contractor market and also carry higher costs. The volume of sales to this market varies depending on location, with the Company actively pursuing repair and remodel business in smaller markets which have not attracted large home center retailers. Showroom space varies from store to store, typically ranging from approximately 5,000 to 20,000 square feet. This space features attractive displays and is frequently remerchandised to reflect product and service improvements. Sales personnel are trained to service both the more sophisticated contractor and the individual consumer, thereby providing the consumer with professional advice for home improvement projects. To enhance public exposure, BMC West frequently advertises in local newspapers, incorporates special display signs in its stores and uses promotional events such as "How-To" shows sponsored by manufacturers of building materials. Management believes that these advertising and promotion programs, in conjunction with the Company's experienced sales staff, enables BMC West to compete effectively in the retail and remodel market. 7
10-K40510th Page of 34TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 10th
CREDIT Overall credit policy for sales to contractors is established by corporate management, but each center has responsiblity for overseeing local accounts. The individual center managers and their staff are trained to have a thorough understanding of state lien laws, which provide security for the Company's accounts receivable. The Company's credit policies, together with daily computer monitoring of customer balances, have resulted in average bad debt expense of approximately 0.15% of net sales during the last five years, with no single year exceeding 0.20%. The Company believes that its bad debt expense levels are among the lowest in the industry. In addition to the credit extended by the Company, the Company accepts third-party credit cards such as MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. BMC West also offers a private-label credit card to individual customers. The BMC West card provides customers with rapid access to revolving credit lines and offers them opportunities to take advantage of deferred financing and other promotions. This program is owned and administered by Household Retail Services, a division of Household Bank, N.A., and is without recourse to BMC West. Household Retail Services handles all credit approval and charge administration functions, and the Company receives payment within two days of submitting charge data. Use of the credit card program gives BMC West a low-cost means of extending credit to these customers without credit exposure. Approximately 89% of the Company's sales in 1996 were made to customers to whom the Company had extended credit for such sales. The remaining 11% of sales in 1996 included cash purchases, and purchases made with third-party credit cards and the Company's private label credit card. MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS BMC West's financial information, operational data, and other related statistical information are processed and maintained at its headquarters on a network of server computers and work stations. The Company financial reporting and relational database system was designed and customized for BMC West by Oracle Corporation. The flexible nature of the Company's installed network allows for accumulation, processing and distribution of information using industry standard computing resources and programs. The point-of-sale information systems used by BMC West operate on IBM RS6000 computers located at each center, and are connected to the computers at headquarters via a high speed frame relay network. These on-line systems provide real-time pricing, inventory availability, and margin analysis, allowing each center's sales staff to serve its customers better, while giving management the ability to access and use timely information to improve operations. Management believes that these systems also have enabled the Company to enhance profit margins, improve inventory turnover through identification and elimination of low-turnover items, accelerate analysis of sales trends, and better monitor accounts receivable, employee productivity, customer credit limits and lien protections. 8

PURCHASING The Company purchases merchandise from a large number of manufacturers and suppliers. In 1996, the Company's largest supplier accounted for approximately 7% of the Company's total purchases. The Company does not believe that the loss of any single supplier would have a material adverse effect on the Company. The Company purchases a majority of its inventory on a centralized basis in order to capitalize on economies of scale, although a limited amount of purchasing and all ordering is controlled at individual centers in order to respond to local needs. Purchasing is controlled at the location level in order to maintain local product needs. A buying group located at the Company's headquarters handles bulk commodity purchases, negotiates with major lumber and panel products suppliers, and manages relations with the Company's non-commodity suppliers. This group consolidates the Company's purchase orders in order to negotiate the best possible prices and terms. Although the Company seeks to time its purchases to take advantage of price movements, BMC West has a policy not to speculate in the commodity wood products market. Approximately 47% of the Company's 1996 sales were attributable to commodity wood products. Prices of commodity wood products are subject to significant volatility and directly affect the Company's sales. During 1996, the prices of commodity wood products purchased and sold by the Company were on average 7% higher than in 1995. (The company's total price inflator for 1996 was 3%) The Company has established purchasing and pricing procedures to minimize exposure to inventory write downs. The Company's commodity buyers monitor inventory and sales levels in each location on a regular basis. With this supply and demand information, buyers can avoid overstocking commodity wood products. As a result, the Company turns its commodity product inventory approximately 12 times per year. Such rapid inventory turnover limits the Company's potential exposure to inventory loss from commodity price fluctuations. In addition, the Company's real-time computer network allows the Company to adjust sales prices as purchase prices of commodity products change. Historically, the Company's hardware products were purchased primarily from Cotter & Company ("True Value"), Ace Hardware ("Ace") and Hardware Wholesalers, Inc. ("HWI"). By serving as a True Value, Ace and HWI dealer, the Company eliminated the need to maintain separate distribution centers for such products. In July 1996, the Company entered into a merchandise supply agreement with the Cotter & Company for hardware products. Under the Agreement, BMC will terminate existing affiliations with other distributors. COMPETITION BMC West operates in a highly competitive environment. Due to the regional nature of the industry, BMC West's competitive environment varies by location and by market segment. Within the professional contractor market, the Company competes primarily with privately owned, single-site enterprises and local and regional building materials chains. Professional contractors generally select building materials centers on the basis of availability of knowledgeable personnel, on-time delivery, reliable inventory levels, availability of credit and competitive pricing. BMC West believes it competes favorably on each of these bases. The Company's relatively large size 9
10-K40512th Page of 34TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 12th
also permits it to attract experienced and professional sales and service personnel and provides BMC West the resources to offer Company-wide product and service training programs. By working closely with its contractor customers and utilizing the Company's real-time management information system, BMC West's centers maintain appropriate inventory levels and are well positioned to deliver completed orders on time to individual job sites. The Company also competes to a lesser extent with certain larger home center retailers such as Home Depot, HomeBase, and Lowe's in this market. Competition from large home center retailers can prompt other local suppliers to pursue professional contractor business more aggressively. Within the repair and remodel market, BMC West competes primarily with local lumber yards and hardware stores and, in certain of its markets, with larger home center chains such as Home Depot, HomeBase and Lowe's. The Company believes that it meets the needs of project-oriented consumers and repair and remodel contractors more effectively than such competitors by (i) providing primarily higher quality products within each category, (ii) offering consumers and contractors access to knowledgeable staff and (iii) developing contractor referral programs and "How-To" programs to address the requirements of consumers on larger projects. EMPLOYEES The success of BMC West Corporation is highly dependent on the quality of its personnel at all levels of the company. As a result, the Company maintains well rounded and competitive compensation and fringe benefit programs to attract, motivate and retain top performing individuals. In addition, the company provides extensive product knowledge, customer service, supervisory and managerial training programs to assure employee and customer satisfaction. At December 31, 1996, BMC West employed approximately 3,150 persons, of which approximately 255 were represented by unions. The Company has not experienced any strikes or other work interruptions and has maintained generally favorable relations with its employees. The following table shows the approximate breakdown by job function of the Company's employees: Officers, corporate and unit management and administrative 27% Field sales force (Outside/Inside Sales) 13% Retail operations (Cashiers/Receiving/Sales Support) 13% Delivery (Truck Drivers, Load Builders, Yard) 30% Manufacturing (Truss, Door and Window) 17% EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AS OF DECEMBER 31, 1996 Date First Elected as Name Age Position or Office An Officer ---- --- ------------------ ---------- George E.
