- 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "Quanex Building Products (NX) results were slightly ahead of our expectations with FY17 guidance coming in mostly as expected with organic growth of 5-6% more than offset by the strategic changes well under way within the company's operations. In reducing North American Engineered Components (NAEC) and North American Cabinetry Components (NACC) footprint, NX is experiencing adjusted EBITDA (AEBITDA) margin expansion. Importantly, we believe further margin can be achieved when NX puts forth price increases for the new/revised portfolio. In the interim, NX is generating $1.60-1.80 of free cash flow per share and leverage remains on track to be ~2.2x by the end of FY17." (3/8/2017)
