EBITDA guides this quarter, investing in the stock still requires patience in our view, as we do not expect the >$800 adj. EBITDA loss to improve to positive until ’24E. We still believe the medium-term unit economics of the business are compelling, but given the increasing focus on profitability by the market, this is being outweighed by the US OSB market still in its infancy (state maturities -1.5 years on average).”
