“We are pleased with the strong financial results reported in the second quarter of 2023, achieving record sales and Adjusted EBITDA and showing continued improvement in the Adjusted EBITDA margin, although the Adjusted EBITDA margin remains below pre-pandemic levels”, said Timothy O’Day, President & Chief Executive Officer of the Boyd Group. “Gross margin improved in the second quarter of 2023 when compared to the same period of the prior year, but reduced slightly when compared to the first quarter of 2023”, added Mr. O’Day. “This reduction in gross margin percentage was offset by increased sales, which provided improved leverage of certain operating expenses and resulted in sequential Adjusted EBITDA margin improvement. Labor margins were flat with client pricing increases not sufficient to move labor margins to historical levels.”

1 Same-store sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net earnings and Adjusted net earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures and ratios and are not standardized financial measures under International Financial Reporting Standards and might not be comparable to similar financial measures disclosed by other issuers. For additional details, including a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to its nearest GAAP equivalent, please see ”Non-GAAP financial measures and ratios” section of this news release.


“We remain focused on the key challenge of building capacity through increased staffing, including negotiating sufficient client price increases to attract the requisite talent into the industry and recover lost labor margin from wage pressure”, said Mr. O’Day. “Relative to the second quarter, the third quarter of 2023 will have one less selling and production day and will also be negatively impacted by seasonal vacations that have a dampening effect on sales. Thus far in the third quarter, same-store sales increases are approximately half of what has been experienced in the first six months of 2023.”

“As labor capacity constraints continue to impact our business, workforce initiatives continue to have a positive impact and ongoing investments in technology, equipment and training position us well for continued operational execution”, continued Mr. O’Day. “We remain committed to addressing the labor market challenges so that we can service additional demand.”

“We are pleased to have opened or acquired 57 collision repair locations thus far in 2023 and the pipeline to add new locations and to expand into new markets is robust”, added Mr. O’Day. “Operationally, we are focused on optimizing performance of new locations, as well as scanning and calibration services, and consistent execution of the WOW Operating Way. Given the high level of location growth in 2021, the strong same-store sales growth during 2022, and the combination of same-store sales growth and location growth thus far in 2023, we remain confident that the Company is on track to achieve its long-term growth goals, including doubling the size of the business on a constant currency basis from 2021 to 2025 against 2019 sales.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Ratios

Same-store sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net earnings and Adjusted net earnings per share are non-GAAP financial measures. Boyd’s management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the performance of the business and to reward employees. These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined in International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and should not be considered an alternative to net earnings or sales in measuring the performance of BGSI.

The following is a reconciliation of BGSI’s non-GAAP financial measures and ratios:


Standardized EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are measures commonly reported and widely used by investors and lending institutions as an indicator of a company’s operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. They are also key measures that management uses to evaluate performance of the business and to reward its employees. While EBITDA is used to assist in evaluating the operating performance and debt servicing ability of BGSI, investors are cautioned that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as reported by BGSI may not be comparable in all instances to EBITDA as reported by other companies.


BGSI believes that certain users of financial statements are interested in understanding net earnings excluding certain fair value adjustments and other items of an unusual or infrequent nature that do not reflect normal or ongoing operations of the Company. This can assist these users in comparing current results to historical results that did not include such items.


Same-store sales is a non-GAAP measure that includes only those locations in operation for the full comparative period. Same-store sales is presented excluding the impact of foreign exchange fluctuation on the current period.
