Taiga’s (TBL) Q3 sales decreased 10% due to lower commodity prices

BURNABY, BC, November 8, 2019 - Taiga Building Products Ltd. (“Taiga” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2019 Earnings Results        

The Company's consolidated net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 were $358.9 million compared to $399.6 million over the same period last year. The decrease in sales by $40.7 million or 10% was largely due to decreased selling prices for commodity products; this was offset by the inclusion of Exterior Wood Inc.’s results, which was acquired in July of 2018.

Gross margin for the third quarter increased to $36.5 million from $27.9 million in the same quarter last year. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to rising commodity prices in the current quarter, while they declined in the same quarter last year.
