  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "QUANEX BUILDING PRODUCTS CORPORATION is a leading manufacturer of engineered materials and components for the U.S. building products market. The Company operates two segments: Engineered Building Products designs proprietary window and door systems and produces fabricated metal, wood and vinyl window and door components, spacer/sealant systems and other products for major window and door manufacturers that primarily serve the residential construction and remodeling markets. Aluminum Sheet Building Products produces coated and mill finish aluminum sheet products for the building and construction market, as well as other capital goods and transportation markets. " (3/10/2017)
  • 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)
