GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

BlueLinx to Announce First Quarter Results on May 4th
BlueLinx Completes Three Property Sales

Sales Generate Approximately $18.4 Million in Debt Reduction
– 2017 July Mortgage Obligation to be Fully Satisfied –
ATLANTA, March 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlueLinx Holdings Inc. (:BXC), announced today that it has completed the sale of its non-operating facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The Company has also sold its Fort Worth, Texas and Miami, Florida distribution facilities while simultaneously entering into leases with the new owners of the two respective facilities. BlueLinx intends to continue to use both facilities to serve its customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth and South Florida areas and surrounding markets. With these property sales and all others incurred since April 2016, BlueLinx will fully satisfy its July 2017 CMBS mortgage payment obligation of $60 million three months ahead of schedule.

“Less than a year ago we announced our initiative to reduce the Company’s financial leverage and are delighted to share that we continue to successfully execute on our strategy to deleverage BlueLinx. We are exploring additional sale and leaseback transactions, alternative refinancing options as well as other real estate optimization strategies to continue to improve the Company’s leverage and financial strength,” said Mitch Lewis, President and Chief Executive Officer. Susan O’Farrell, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer added, “We are thrilled with the property sales we completed in the first quarter of 2017, enabling us to satisfy our July 2017 mortgage obligation ahead of schedule. The substantial remaining real estate portfolio value, which is well above our outstanding mortgage, should enable us to continue to deleverage our balance sheet, while providing us with potential future opportunities to extract that value for the benefit of our growth strategies.” About BlueLinx Holdings Inc.
