GoodHaven Capital Management, in their Q4 2020 investor letter, mentioned Builders FirstSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLDR). Here is what the fund said:

“Builders FirstSource climbed into the top five the old-fashioned way – good results, an attractive merger announcement, and a higher stock price. To paraphrase my January 2020 letter when explaining our thesis; “Builders is the nation’s largest supplier of structural building products and services to the professional market for new residential construction and repair and remodeling. This is a consolidating, cash generative industry starting to favor the biggest players, and with minimal real disintermediation risks. However, they do operate in a cyclical industry.” In August, Builders announced a merger with its main public competitor BMC Stock Holdings which will further consolidate the industry, solve a succession issue at Builders and lower its leverage – at a fair price. The combined company has near-term potential free cash flow of over $3/share – though volatile lumber prices will always cause some noise – and much higher long-term free cash flow potential. Chairman of the Board Paul Levy has been working on this deal for a while – we send him our regards and thanks.”
