Item 8.01.

Other Events.

On December 14, 2017, Builders FirstSource, Inc. (the “Company”) elected to call for the redemption of all of the outstanding $367.6 million aggregate principal amount of its 10.75% Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) in contemplation of pending tax reform, which may limit the future deductibility of interest expense.  A notice of redemption has been sent by Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee, to all registered holders of the Notes.  The redemption date for the Notes will be December 29, 2017 (the “Redemption Date”).  The redemption price is equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes, plus the Applicable Premium, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Redemption Date. The Applicable Premium for any Note is calculated as: (a) the present value at the Redemption Date of (i) the redemption price of such Note at August 15, 2018, which is 108.063% of the principal amount, plus (ii) all required interest payments due on such Note to and including August 15, 2018 (excluding accrued but unpaid interest, if any), computed using a discount rate equal to the applicable treasury rate at the Redemption Date plus 50 basis points, minus (b) the outstanding principal amount of such Note.  

This transaction will be funded by the Company with a combination of cash generated from operations as well as borrowing on its revolving credit facility.  A certain amount of 2018 interest will be paid in 2017 with this transaction, which may marginally impact the cash flow and leverage ratio that the Company expected to achieve as of December 31, 2017.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
