Owens Corning Completes Acquisition of Masonite, Strengthening Leadership in Building and Construction Materials

  • Expands Owens Corning’s leadership position in branded residential products with a complementary line of innovative interior and exterior doors and door systems
  • Creates a scalable new growth platform leveraging combined commercial, operational, and innovation capabilities
  • Enhances Owens Corning’s attractive financial profile
  • Generates strong free cash flow to support consistent capital allocation strategy
  • Names Chris Ball President of Doors business

Owens Corning (NYSE: OC) today announced it has completed its acquisition of Masonite International Corporation (“Masonite”), a leading global provider of interior and exterior doors and door systems. All outstanding Masonite common shares have been acquired by Owens Corning for $133.00 per share, with an implied transaction value of approximately $3.9 billion.

“The addition of Masonite to Owens Corning marks a significant milestone for our company, as we further strengthen our position as a market leader in building and construction materials,” said Brian Chambers, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Owens Corning. “Over the past several years, Owens Corning has been on a journey to transform and grow our company through strategic choices and strong execution. The completion of this acquisition represents the start of an exciting next chapter that allows us to leverage our proven commercial, operational, and innovation capabilities to increase our offering of highly valued branded building materials for our customers. We are excited about expanding into this new growth platform and for the opportunities ahead.”

Founded in 1925, Masonite is a leading global provider of interior and exterior doors and door systems serving both repair and remodel and new construction demand. Masonite operates 64 manufacturing and distribution facilities, primarily in North America, and has over 10,000 employees globally.

With the completion of the acquisition, Owens Corning’s annual revenue grows to $12.5 billion, with adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 billion on a synergized basis1 and reduced ongoing capital intensity. Owens Corning expects to achieve approximately $125 million of run-rate cost synergies. The acquisition drives meaningful shareholder value creation with ROIC exceeding Owens Corning’s cost of capital by the end of Year 3 post-close.

Masonite shareholders voted to approve the transaction at the Special Meeting of Shareholders held on April 25, 2024. With the completion of the acquisition, Masonite’s common shares will cease trading on the New York Stock Exchange and will be delisted.

Doors Business President Named

Owens Corning has named Chris Ball as President of its Doors business. Ball previously served as President of Masonite’s Global Residential business. He will report directly to Chair and Chief Executive Officer Brian Chambers and serve as a member of the company’s Executive Committee.

“We are pleased to welcome Chris to the Owens Corning executive team. His proven track record of growing businesses and developing talent, as well as his strong commercial execution, operational knowledge, and customer focus, will be instrumental as he leads this business into the future,” said Chambers. “Today we are combining two highly talented teams with a shared focus on keeping each other safe, helping our customers win and grow in the market, and delivering value for our shareholders. We look forward to working together with Chris and all of our new colleagues from Masonite.”

Ball joined Masonite as President of its Global Residential business in September 2021. Previously he held leadership roles at several Fortune 500 companies. He was President of the Americas for Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, where he led the North America, Latin America, and Global Commercial Truck Tire business units. He joined Cooper Tire from Whirlpool Corporation, where he served in various roles including Global Vice President for the company’s KitchenAid small appliance business and General Manager of the North America Laundry unit, Whirlpool’s largest business. He has also worked in sales leadership roles for General Mills, Inc.

He holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and a Master of Business Administration from the executive master’s program at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Owens Corning uses non-GAAP measures that are intended to supplement investors' understanding of the company's financial information. These non-GAAP measures include adjusted EBITDA. A reconciliation for adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP measures are included in the financial tables of this press release. For purposes of internal review of Owens Corning's year-over-year operational performance, management excludes from net earnings attributable to Owens Corning certain items it believes are not representative of ongoing operations. The non-GAAP financial measures resulting from these adjustments (including adjusted EBITDA) are used internally by Owens Corning for various purposes, including reporting results of operations to the Board of Directors, analysis of performance, and related employee compensation measures. Management believes that these adjustments result in a measure that provides a useful representation of its operational performance; however, the adjusted measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings attributable to Owens Corning as prepared in accordance with GAAP.
