Schnitzer Reports Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

June 26, 2014

Increased Volume in Auto Parts and Steel Manufacturing Businesses

Higher Earnings Per Share Sequentially and Year-Over-Year

PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq:SCHN) today reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.16 and earnings per share of $0.12 for its fiscal 2014 third quarter ended May 31, 2014. This compares to adjusted earnings per share of $0.09 and earnings per share of $0.03 in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted and reported earnings per share both include discrete tax benefits of $0.08 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. The Company generated $73 million in operating cash flow during the first nine months of fiscal 2014, including $27 million in the third quarter.

In our Metals Recycling Business, demand for recycled metals remained steady compared to the second quarter. However, a decline in ferrous prices for shipments early in the quarter led to lower average selling prices which resulted in an estimated adverse impact from average inventory accounting of approximately $10 per ton sequentially. This adverse average inventory impact more than offset the benefits from productivity improvements and cost reductions in the third quarter resulting in operating income per ton of $4 in our Metals Recycling Business. Our Auto Parts Business achieved higher car volumes and seasonally stronger retail sales which more than offset the impact of weaker commodity prices and generated a sequentially higher operating margin of 8%. In our Steel Manufacturing Business, stronger nonresidential construction markets drove increased sales volumes and sequentially higher operating income of $5 million.

The Company continued to successfully execute on its $40 million productivity initiatives and cost savings program, approximately 70% of which are expected to be achieved by the end of fiscal 2014. In the third quarter, savings of $9 million were generated through our Metals Recycling and Steel Manufacturing Businesses which, together with prior savings, is a year-to-date benefit of $20 million.

“We were pleased to see improved sales volumes in both our Steel Manufacturing and Auto Parts Businesses,” said Tamara Lundgren, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In our Steel Manufacturing Business, our utilization rate was the highest it has been since 2008, reflecting strengthening demand. In our Auto Parts Business, retail sales rebounded after a harsh winter and car purchase volumes reached record levels. In our Metals Recycling Business, results reflected a significant adverse impact from average inventory accounting. However, overall sales volumes in MRB were steady with an increase in both export sales off the East Coast and to the domestic market versus the second quarter. Our continued focus on generating positive cash metal spreads and on disciplined cost and working capital management enabled us to deliver another quarter of strong operating cash flow.”

Key business drivers during the third quarter of fiscal 2014:

  • Metals Recycling Business (MRB) generated $4 million of operating income, reflecting lower average ferrous selling prices and adverse impacts of average inventory accounting sequentially which more than offset increasing levels of productivity savings.
  • Auto Parts Business (APB) delivered operating income of $7 million and an operating margin of 8%. Increased car volumes and seasonally stronger retail sales benefited results.
  • Steel Manufacturing Business (SMB) operating income of $5 million reflected higher nonresidential demand in the West Coast markets and solid execution on productivity initiatives.

    Sales Volumes: Ferrous sales volumes of 1 million tons in the third quarter and nonferrous volumes of 139 million pounds approximated second quarter levels.

    Export customers accounted for 66% of total ferrous sales volumes in the third quarter. Our ferrous and nonferrous products were shipped to 16 countries, with Turkey, Egypt and Malaysia being the top ferrous export destinations.

    Pricing: Average ferrous selling prices in the third quarter declined $19 sequentially. Ferrous selling prices for shipments early in the third quarter softened as much as $40 per ton from peak levels in the second quarter before partially recovering toward the end of the quarter. Nonferrous prices were level with the second quarter.

    Margins: Operating income of $4 per ferrous ton declined from $11 per ton reported in the second quarter, reflecting a $10 per ton adverse impact from average inventory sequentially due to the falling price trend. Productivity improvements and cost reductions generated $7 million in savings in the third quarter.

    Sales Volumes: Finished steel sales volumes of 135 thousand tons increased 17% sequentially due to higher seasonal construction activity and improving nonresidential demand.

    Pricing: Average net sales prices for finished steel products of $686 per short ton increased on a sequential basis due to higher demand.

    Margins: Operating income of $5 million reflects higher average selling prices and sales volumes and included approximately $1 million of planned maintenance costs incurred in the quarter.

    Productivity Initiatives and Other Cost Reductions

    We are targeting $40 million of productivity initiatives and cost reductions, of which approximately 70% is expected to be achieved by the end of fiscal 2014 and the remainder in fiscal 2015. Of the total, approximately $30 million represents expected benefits from productivity improvement initiatives with the remaining $10 million primarily benefiting selling, general and administration expenses. The productivity initiatives are primarily occurring in our Metals Recycling Business through a combination of headcount reductions, implementation of operational efficiencies, reduced lease costs, and other productivity improvements. The savings in selling, general and administration expenses will be achieved across our Metals Recycling and Auto Parts Businesses and Corporate. Through the first nine months of fiscal 2014, we achieved an aggregate $20 million of benefits, which includes $9 million in the third quarter. During the third quarter, we incurred $3 million of restructuring charges and other exit-related costs in connection with this program.

    Corporate Items

    Adjusted earnings per share in the third quarter excludes restructuring and other impairment charges and includes $2 million of discrete tax benefits. Reported earnings per share includes the same discrete tax benefits and $2 million of additional tax benefits reflecting the allocation of the projected annual tax rate on quarterly results. The Company's full year tax rate for fiscal 2014 is anticipated to be approximately 29%.

    Net debt of $347 million at the end of the third quarter was $11 million less than at the end of the second quarter in fiscal 2014. (See Non-GAAP Financial Measures for reconciliation to U.S. GAAP.)

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules such as adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income for MRB, adjusted net income attributable to SSI, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to SSI, operating income margin for APB stores owned more than a year and debt, net of cash. As required by SEC rules, the Company has provided reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. Management believes that each of the foregoing adjusted non-GAAP financial measures provides a meaningful presentation of the Company's results from its core business operations excluding adjustments for restructuring and other exit-related costs and other impairment charges that are not related to the Company's ongoing core business operations and improves the period-to-period comparability of the Company's results from its core business operations. In addition, management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure relating to the Auto Parts Business new stores impact provides a meaningful presentation of the operating segment's results by excluding operating results relating to newly added stores and thus improves period-to-period comparability of the results of the segment's core business. Management believes that debt, net of cash is a useful measure for investors because, as cash and cash equivalents can be used, among other things, to repay indebtedness, netting this against total debt is a useful measure of our leverage. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
