“Our first quarter results reflect what we see as momentum building in our business,” said DXP Chairman and CEO David R. Little. “We are pleased with DXP’s first quarter results which included sequential sales and operating income growth across all three business segments. Total DXP Adjusted EBITDA also increased sequentially and resulted in strong margin improvement. We are encouraged by the organic and acquisition growth, increased earnings driven by the operating leverage we are accustom to seeing within our industry despite the current macro backdrop which includes supply chain challenges, impacts from inflation and the abating COVID crisis. Our improved momentum continued in the first quarter as our DXPeople worked together to manage through supply chain challenges and get in front of rising product costs.”
