Item 7.01. regulation FD Disclosure.

Update to impact of hurricanes on fiscal fourth quarter 2017
On October 18, 2017 NCI Building Systems, Inc. (the “Company” or “NCI”) issued a press release providing an update with respect to the impact of Hurricane Harvey and other storms on the Company’s fiscal fourth quarter 2017 guidance. A copy of the release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.     

The information in this Item 7.01 and in Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any registration statement or other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except in the event that NCI expressly states that such information is to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or incorporates it by specific reference in such filing.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Update to Impact of Hurricanes on Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2017
The updated expectations with respect to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 contained in the release are forward-looking statements based on management’s estimates as of the date hereof, and our actual results may be materially different from these expectations. They are estimates, unaudited and reflect management’s current views with respect to future results and may change as a result of industry or other developments, management’s review of our actual results and other factors. These financial expectations are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that are in turn based on our analysis of the various factors which currently impact our business. These assumptions and estimates are inherently uncertain and subject to significant business, operational, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Other assumptions relate to risks and uncertainties beyond our control, including, among others, the economic environment in which we operate and developments in our industry. Our actual results for the fiscal fourth quarter 2017 may differ materially from the expectations contained in the release if any of these assumptions prove incorrect. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these estimated results and they should not be viewed as a substitute for our historical financial information presented in the Company’s SEC filings, including our consolidated financial statements and the related notes.
A reconciliation of the forecasted impact of Hurricane Harvey and other storms on Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 is not included in the release or this report due to the number of variables in the projected impact and because we are currently unable to quantify accurately certain amounts that would be required to be included in the GAAP measure or the individual adjustments for such reconciliation. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Forward-Looking Statements
This report contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which may be beyond our control. “Forward-looking statements” include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts, and can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “might,” “will,” “could” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “outlook,” “seek,” “designed,” “assume,” “implied,” “believe” and other similar expressions. Forward-looking statements also include projections, forecasts or estimates of performance, including, in particular, statements regarding the estimated impact of Hurricane Harvey and other storms on our fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 Adjusted EBITDA. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include the uncertainties discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s SEC filings, including under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 30, 2016. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. These forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions by our management that, although we believe to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain and subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.
Any forward-looking statement presented in this report is made only as of the date of this report, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other factors, except as otherwise required by law.

NEWS RELEASE

NCI Building Systems Announces
Update to Impact from Storms

HOUSTON, October 18, 2017 — NCI Building Systems, Inc. (NYSE: NCS) (“NCI” or the “Company”) today announced an update to guidance from the impact of multiple hurricanes across the southern and eastern parts of the United States.
“At the time of our third quarter earnings call, with limited visibility on the impact of Hurricane Harvey, we had estimated that fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA would be negatively impacted by $3 to $8 million. Since that time, we have seen the subsequent storms create a further dampening effect on our near-term business, as customers delay orders to assess job site readiness. We now estimate that fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA will be negatively impacted by $7 to $10 million as a collective result of those major storms," said Donald R. Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Although these storms have revised the fourth quarter results to the lower end of our Adjusted EBITDA range, customer sentiment overall remains positive and while it cannot be assured, it is generally expected that orders that are currently postponed or deferred will contribute to 2018 full-year results.”

Words such as "believe," "anticipate," "guidance," “plan,” "potential," "expect," "should," "will," "forecast" and similar expressions are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations, assumptions and/or beliefs concerning future events. As a result, these forward-looking statements rely on a number of assumptions, forecasts, and estimates and, therefore, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause the Company's actual performance to differ materially from that projected in such statements. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the Company’s updated expectations with respect to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. They are estimates, unaudited and reflect management’s estimates as of the date hereof, and our actual results may be materially different from these expectations as a result of industry or other developments, management’s review of our actual results and other factors. These financial expectations are based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that are in turn based on our analysis of the various factors which currently impact our business. These assumptions and estimates are inherently uncertain and subject to significant business, operational, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include the uncertainties discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s SEC filings, including under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 30, 2016. Our actual results for the fiscal fourth quarter 2017 may differ materially from the expectations contained herein if any of these assumptions prove incorrect. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on these estimated results and they should not be viewed as a substitute for our historical financial information presented in the Company’s SEC filings, including our consolidated financial statements and the related notes.
