David R. Little, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer remarked, “We are
pleased to report a strong third quarter in sales and profitability. On a
trailing twelve month basis, we exceeded our sales goal of $1 billion and
third quarter EBITDA margins were 10.6%. Congratulations to DXPeople for
achieving our financial goals earlier than expected. We also added three new
SuperCenters in the third quarter. We believe that our internal and external
growth strategies will take market share despite the uncertainty and softness
in the market. We look forward to our new financial goals of $2 billion in
sales by 2016 at 10% EBITDA margins and our moral goal of providing the
opportunity for DXPeople and customers to be more successful."

Mac McConnell, Senior Vice President and CFO, added, “We are pleased with our
third quarter financial performance. Our quarterly financial results reflect
7.4% organic growth with meaningful sales increase from acquisitions.
Additionally, we continue to see improvement in EBITDA margins. While the
financial tone of our business remains strong, we are monitoring our results
against any changes in customer behavior. Our leverage ratio under our credit
facility is a modest 2.1:1."
