DA Davidson analysts commented, "We hosted meetings with CEO Todd Adams, where discussion focus areas included operational excellence, SCOFR, end-market/competitive dynamics, and M&A strategy. We came away incrementally positive on RBS initiatives and SCOFR benefits supporting EBITDA margin expansion over the next several years, and management’s confidence in non-residential construction tailwinds sustaining through ’17 very much aligns with our positive stance (as we framed in mid-July note here). Business portfolio moves (e.g., past dispositions, recent Cambridge acquisition) demonstrate RXN’s seeking less cyclical exposure while maintaining a focus on areas where sustainable advantages can be leveraged."
