Barry Litwin, Chief Executive Officer, said, "First quarter performance reflects a continuation of the recent demand environment. We recorded strong growth from our largest accounts in the quarter, and customer retention continued to be healthy, however our core small and medium business customer base remained cautious with their purchasing behavior. We were very pleased with gross margin performance of 35.9%, and product margin trends improved as we moved through the quarter benefiting from lower total landing costs."

"Our focus on the customer continues to drive our strategy and we made further progress on operational excellence and digital transformation initiatives. Within our new web platform, we have identified a number of user experience changes that impacted navigation and recent performance. We have completed enhancements on the product experience to improve shop-ability and additional optimization efforts are ongoing. Looking ahead, we believe we have the tools and resources to navigate the current market conditions. Our ability to leverage Global Industrial Exclusive BrandsTM offering, strong national brand assortment and pricing analytics are allowing us to provide significant value to customers, while managing our gross margin profile. We are investing in key growth initiatives to drive long-term success and continue to proactively manage our cost structure. With an exceptional balance sheet, we remain well positioned to execute on our strategy, explore organic and strategic opportunities, and build long-term value for our stakeholders."
