On Oct. 30, building materials distributor and manufacturer Boise Cascade reported third-quarter 2023 net income of $143.1 million on sales of $1.8 billion, a 15% drop compared with net income of $219.6 million on sales of $2.2 billion for 3Q 2022.

The year-over-year net income dropped 35% in 3Q 2023, while adjusted EBITDA fell 34%, the company said. Boise Cascade’s revenue shows that 91% of 3Q 2023 revenue came from distribution.

By segment, wood product sales dropped 13% versus 3Q 2022, while building materials distribution sales fell 15%.

“In third quarter 2023, total U.S. housing starts decreased 6%, driven by a decrease in multi-family housing starts compared to the same period in 2022,” the company said in its earnings release. “However, single-family housing starts increased 7% compared to the same period in 2022. On a year-to-date basis through September 2023, total housing starts and single-family housing starts decreased 12% and 13%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2022. Single-family housing starts are the key demand driver for our sales.”

Boise Cascade also recently announced the promotions of four senior leaders:

  • Troy Little has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Finance and Commodity Sales, Wood Products.
  • Joanna Barney has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Building Materials Distribution (BMD) Western Operations.
  • Jim Wickham has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Building Materials Distribution (BMD) Eastern Operations.
