Earnings Conference Call Update

DXP is currently in its quiet period ahead of its second quarter 2021 earnings call and will not host a call to provide additional commentary regarding this preannouncement. We will now host a conference call regarding June 30, 2021 second quarter results on the Company’s website (www.dxpe.com) no later than Friday, August 13, 2021. The Company will provide an update, when appropriate.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

DXP supplements reporting of net income with non-GAAP measurement, free cash flow. This supplemental information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the unaudited GAAP measurements.

Free Cash Flow reconciles to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure of cash flows from operations as provided above. We believe Free Cash Flow is an important liquidity metric because it measures, during a given period, the amount of cash generated that is available to fund acquisitions, make investments, repay debt obligations, repurchase company shares, and for certain other activities.
