TimkenSteel Announces Third-Quarter 2021 Results

11/04/2021
- Third quarter net sales of $343.7 million increased 5 percent sequentially
- Net income of $50.1 million and record adjusted EBITDA(1) of $72.0 million
- Strong operating cash flow of $53.8 million, a 37 percent sequential improvement, with record total liquidity(2) of $444.4 million

CANTON, Ohio, Nov. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TimkenSteel (NYSE: TMST), a leader in high-quality specialty steel, manufactured components, and supply chain solutions, today reported third-quarter 2021 net sales of $343.7 million and net income of $50.1 million, or $0.94 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis(1), third-quarter 2021 net income was $55.2 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA was $72.0 million.

In the same quarter last year, net sales were $205.9 million with a net loss of $13.9 million, or a loss of $0.31 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis(1), third-quarter 2020 net loss was $17.3 million, or a loss of $0.38 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA was $2.6 million.

Second-quarter 2021 net sales were $327.3 million with net income of $54.0 million, or $0.98 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis(1), second-quarter 2021 net income was $52.5 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA was $71.0 million.

"As we head into the end of the year, I am encouraged that the demand environment remains robust, and our first half of 2022 order book is filling up in a strong pricing environment. Sales to the industrial market remained stable during the third quarter while shipments to mobile customers continued to be impacted by semiconductor supply chain disruption," said Mike Williams, president and chief executive officer. "With our uncompromising focus on employee safety and customer service, as well as continued cost control, we achieved record adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter and finished with a record balance of cash and total liquidity."

THIRD QUARTER OF 2021 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

  • Net sales of $343.7 million increased 5 percent compared with $327.3 million in the second quarter of 2021, driven primarily by higher raw material surcharges and base sales prices. The average raw material surcharge per ton increased 17 percent sequentially as a result of higher scrap and alloy prices. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, net sales increased 67 percent largely driven by improved industrial and energy demand, and a significant increase in the average raw material surcharge per ton as a result of higher scrap and alloy prices.
  • Ship tons of 212,700 were essentially flat sequentially, in line with prior guidance. Industrial demand remained strong at 111,000 ship tons, energy shipments increased 48 percent sequentially to 12,900 tons and mobile shipments declined 5 percent sequentially to 88,800 tons due to the ongoing impact of the semiconductor chip shortage. The company estimates that the semiconductor chip shortage drove an approximate 15,000 ton decrease in mobile market shipments in the quarter. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, total ship tons increased 38 percent with significant increases in both industrial and energy shipments.
  • Manufacturing costs increased sequentially as a result of planned annual maintenance shutdown costs at the company's rolling and finishing operations. Compared with the prior-year quarter, manufacturing costs improved primarily due to higher melt utilization and the impact of systemic cost reduction actions.
  • SG&A expense was $19.9 million, a $1.1 million decrease from the second quarter of 2021 as a result of lower variable compensation expense and lower employee benefits expense. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, SG&A expense increased by $2.0 million largely due to higher variable compensation expense and prior year COVID-19-related temporary cost reduction actions partially offset by savings from employee restructuring actions.

(1)  Please see discussion of non-GAAP financial measures in this news release.

(2)  The company defines total liquidity as available borrowing capacity plus cash and cash equivalents.

 

VOLUNTARY EXIT INCENTIVE PROGRAM
In October, the company further refined its organizational structure and offered a voluntary exit incentive to certain U.S.-based salaried non-operative employees who will be eligible for retirement by December 31, 2023. As a result of this program, the company anticipates recording a restructuring charge of approximately $4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, with cash severance payments expected primarily in 2022. Ongoing run-rate savings are estimated to be approximately $5 million as a result of this action.

CASH AND LIQUIDITY
As of September 30, 2021, the company's cash balance was $172.0 million. Operating cash flow was $53.8 million in the third-quarter 2021 and $106.2 million year-to-date through September 30, 2021, driven by higher profitability. Total liquidity(2) was a record $444.4 million as of September 30, 2021, an improvement of $67.9 million from June 30, 2021.

OUTLOOK
The company expects fourth quarter ship tons to be lower than third-quarter levels. While the company's order book is full for the remainder of 2021, fourth quarter shipments will be negatively impacted by lower melt utilization as a result of the recently completed annual Faircrest melt shop maintenance shutdown. Additionally, periodic automotive customer manufacturing outages due to the semiconductor chip shortage may negatively impact fourth quarter mobile shipments.

From an operational perspective:

  • Melt utilization is expected to be at or above 75 percent during the fourth quarter.
  • Annual Faircrest shutdown maintenance was completed in the fourth quarter at a cost of approximately $5 million.
  • A labor agreement ratification bonus will be paid to employees during the fourth quarter at a cost of approximately $2 million.
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $15 million to $20 million in 2021.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TimkenSteel reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures. This earnings release includes references to the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted net income (loss), EBIT, adjusted EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and base sales. These are important financial measures used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as these measures are representative of the company's performance and provide improved comparability of results.  See the attached schedules for definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures referred to above and corresponding reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as additions to, and not as alternatives for, TimkenSteel's results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and other companies may not define the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses in the same way.

(1) EBIT is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense and income taxes. EBIT is an important financial measure used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting EBIT is useful to investors as this measure is representative of the company's performance.


(2) For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes (5.9 million shares and 7.8 million shares, respectively) and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards (1.8 million shares and 1.6 million shares, respectively) were included in the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share, as they were considered dilutive. The total diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 were 53.9 million shares and 55.2 million shares, respectively. For the convertible notes, the Company utilizes the if-converted method to calculate diluted earnings (loss) per share. As such, net income was adjusted to add back $0.8 million and $3.3 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively, of convertible debt interest expense (including amortization of debt issuance costs).

(1) For the three months ended September 30, 2021, common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes (5.9 million shares) and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards (1.8 million shares) were included in the computation of as reported and as adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, as they were considered dilutive. The total diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was 53.9 million shares. For the convertible notes, the Company utilizes the if-converted method to calculate diluted earnings (loss) per share. As such, net income was adjusted to add back $0.8 million of convertible debt interest expense (including amortization of debt issuance costs).


(2) Business transformation costs consist of items that are non-routine in nature. For the three months ended September 30, 2021 and June 30, 2021, these costs are primarily related to professional service fees associated with organizational changes. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, these costs are primarily related to professional service fees associated with the disposition of non-core assets.


(3) Adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share are defined as net income (loss) and diluted earnings (loss) per share, respectively, excluding, as applicable, adjustments listed in the foregoing table. Other adjusted items referred to in the foregoing tables are also defined as the applicable item excluding any adjustments listed in the foregoing tables with respect to such item.


(4) Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards for the three months ended September 30, 2020, were excluded from the computation of adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.


(5) For the three months ended June 30, 2021, common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes (8.3 million shares) and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards (1.9 million shares) were included in the computation of as reported and as adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share, as they were considered dilutive. The total diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was 56.1 million shares. For the convertible notes, the Company utilizes the if-converted method to calculate diluted earnings (loss) per share. As such, net income was adjusted to add back $1.2 million of convertible debt interest expense (including amortization of debt issuance costs).

 

Reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss)(3) to GAAP net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share(3) to GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and other adjusted items referred to below are financial measures not required by, or presented in accordance with GAAP. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and a reconciliation of these financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is presented. Management believes this data provides investors with additional useful information on the underlying operations and trends of the business and enables period-to-period comparability of the company's financial performance.

Reconciliation of Earnings (Loss) Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT)(1), Adjusted EBIT(3), Earnings (Loss) Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)(2) and Adjusted EBITDA(4) to GAAP Net Income (Loss):

This reconciliation is provided as additional relevant information about the company's performance. EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are important financial measures used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as these measures are representative of the company's performance. Management also believes that it is appropriate to compare GAAP net income (loss) to EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

R econciliation of Base Sales by end market sector to GAAP Net Sales by end-market sector:

The tables below present base sales by end-market sector, which represents a financial measure that has not been determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Base Sales by end-market sector are defined as net sales by end-market sector excluding raw material surcharges. Base Sales by end-market sector are an important financial measure used in the management of the business. Management believes presenting base sales by end-market sector is useful to investors as it provides additional insight into key drivers of base sales such as base price and product mix.
