TimkenSteel Announces Third-Quarter 2022 Results

11/03/2022
  • Net sales of $316.8 million
  • Net loss of $13.3 million with adjusted EBITDA(1) of $10.8 million
  • Operating cash flow of $46.8 million with record ending cash and cash equivalents of $262.5 million

CANTON, Ohio, Nov. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TimkenSteel (NYSE: TMST), a leader in high-quality specialty steel, manufactured components, and supply chain solutions, today confirmed its previously reported third-quarter 2022 net sales of $316.8 million and reported a net loss of $13.3 million, or a loss of $0.29 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis(1), the third-quarter 2022 net loss was $4.1 million, or a loss of $0.09 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA was $10.8 million.

This compares with the company's sequential second-quarter 2022 net sales of $415.7 million and net income of $74.5 million, or $1.42 per diluted share. On an adjusted basis(1), second-quarter 2022 net income was $67.4 million, or $1.29 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA was a record $84.2 million.

In the same quarter last year, net sales were $343.7 million with 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.

"As we guided in our mid-October announcement, our third-quarter financial performance was significantly impacted by the July incident at our melt shop. While we anticipate that fourth-quarter profitability will remain challenged as we continue to ramp up melt production, I am encouraged that demand remains solid across our end markets, we see a positive trend in base sales pricing and our balance sheet is strong. These factors give me confidence that we will enter 2023 with positive momentum and are well positioned for long-term success," said Mike Williams, president and chief executive officer. "We remain focused on enhancing our safety culture with important initiatives and advanced training that will continue into 2023. Lastly, I thank our customers for their continued trust in TimkenSteel."

THIRD-QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

  • Net sales of $316.8 million decreased 24 percent compared with $415.7 million in the second quarter 2022. The decrease in net sales was primarily driven by lower shipments and a market-driven 13 percent reduction in surcharge revenue per ton, partially offset by 9 percent higher base sales(1) prices. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, net sales decreased 8 percent primarily driven by lower shipments, partially offset by 30 percent higher base sales(1) prices.
  • Ship tons of 158,500 decreased 50,400 tons sequentially, or 24 percent, driven by lower shipments across all end markets. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, ship tons decreased 25 percent as a result of lower industrial and mobile shipments. Customer demand remained solid throughout the third quarter 2022; however, shipments were negatively impacted by the availability of inventory for shipment as a result of the July melt shop incident.

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

  • Manufacturing costs increased sequentially by $32.8 million with melt utilization of 40 percent compared with 84 percent in the second quarter. As a result of the melt shop incident and ongoing production ramp up, the third quarter experienced a significant sequential decline in manufacturing cost absorption. Additionally, costs associated with the incident totaled approximately $8 million in the quarter as repairs were completed. Annual maintenance shutdown costs in the third quarter were also approximately $8 million, as the company pulled forward certain annual maintenance activities into the third quarter to minimize fourth quarter downtime. Compared with the prior-year third quarter, manufacturing costs increased $54.3 million in the quarter. The increase was primarily driven by lower cost absorption given the 40 percent melt utilization rate compared with 85 percent in the same quarter last year. Manufacturing costs were also higher due to overall inflation, as well as higher maintenance and repair costs.
  • SG&A expense was $16.2 million, a $5.5 million sequential decrease and a $3.7 million decrease when compared to the prior-year third quarter, primarily driven by lower variable compensation expense.

CASH AND LIQUIDITY
As of September 30, 2022, the company's cash and cash equivalents balance was a record $262.5 million. In the third quarter 2022, operating cash flow was $46.8 million, primarily driven by a reduction in working capital. Total liquidity(2) was $487.2 million as of September 30, 2022.

On September 30, 2022, the company refinanced its asset-based revolving credit facility ("Credit Facility") and extended the maturity date to September 2027. Following the amendment, Credit Facility capacity remained at $400.0 million with improvement in a variety of financial terms and covenants. The Credit Facility remains undrawn at this time.

COMMON SHARE REPURCHASE ACTIVITY
In the third quarter, the company repurchased 1.3 million common shares in the open market at an aggregate cost of $19.7 million. In October, the company repurchased 0.7 million additional common shares in the open market at an aggregate cost of $12.1 million. As of October 31, 2022, the company has repurchased approximately 2.6 million total common shares at an aggregate cost of $44.5 million, leaving just $5.5 million remaining on its $50.0 million program established in December 2021.

On November 2, 2022, the Board of Directors authorized an additional $75.0 million share repurchase program. This authorization reflects the continued confidence of the Board and senior leadership in the company's ability to generate sustainable through‐cycle profitability while maintaining a strong balance sheet and cash flow. In aggregate as of November 2, 2022, the company has $79.1 million remaining under its authorized share repurchase programs.

OUTLOOK

From a commercial perspective:

  • Demand remains strong across the company's end markets with a customer order backlog in excess of 300,000 ship tons and the majority of production capacity allocated to customers in 2023. However, fourth-quarter shipments continue to be negatively impacted by available inventory following the July melt shop incident. As a result, fourth-quarter shipments are expected to be slightly lower than the third quarter.
  • Surcharge revenue per ton is expected to be sequentially lower in the fourth quarter as a result of a market decline in scrap prices.
  • Annual customer pricing agreements are currently being negotiated for 2023. Following a favorable outcome for 2022 customer pricing agreements, negotiations are progressing positively with an expected increase in 2023 base prices.

(2)

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

From an operational perspective:

  • Melt utilization is expected to average approximately 50 to 60 percent during the fourth quarter, reflective of a continued monthly ramp-up of production through the end of this year following the July incident, as well as planned annual shutdown maintenance. In 2023, melt utilization rates are expected to be much improved compared with the second half of 2022.
  • The remainder of this year's planned annual shutdown maintenance will be completed in the fourth quarter at a cost of approximately $3 million.
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $10 million to $15 million in the fourth quarter, resulting in a total of approximately $25 million to $30 million for the full-year 2022.

As a result of the above drivers, the company expects fourth-quarter adjusted EBITDA to continue to be challenged, excluding any potential business interruption insurance recovery related to the July melt shop incident.  The company anticipates a significant insurance recovery related to the incident, although the timing and amount of potential recovery are uncertain at this time.

(1) EBIT is defined as net income (loss) before interest (income) expense, net 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) Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards, were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022, because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes (3.9 million shares) and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards (2.1 million shares) were included in the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share, as they were considered dilutive. For the convertible notes, the company utilizes the if-converted method to calculate diluted earnings (loss) per share. As such, for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, net income was adjusted to add back $1.5 million of convertible notes interest expense (including amortization of convertible notes issuance costs).


(3) 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. 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 notes interest expense (including amortization of convertible notes issuance costs).

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.

(1) Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards, were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022, because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.


(2) Business transformation costs consist of items that are non-routine in nature. These costs are primarily related to professional service fees associated with strategic initiatives and organizational changes.


(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) 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 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 calculated diluted earnings (loss) per share. As such, net income was adjusted to add back $0.8 million of convertible notes interest expense (including amortization of convertible notes issuance costs).


(5) For the three months ended June 30, 2022, common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes (4.0 million shares) and common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards (2.2 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, 2022 was 52.8 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 $0.5 million of convertible notes interest expense (including amortization of convertible notes issuance costs).


(6) For the three months ended September 30, 2022, the loss on sale or disposal of assets, net, primarily related to the loss recognized on the sale of the remaining land and buildings at the company's TimkenSteel Material Services ("TMS") facility, as well as write-offs of aged assets removed from service. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the loss on sale or disposal of assets, net, primarily consisted of write-offs of aged assets removed from service.


(7) For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and June 30, 2022, IT transformation costs were primarily related to professional service fees not eligible for capitalization that are associated specifically with an information technology application simplification and modernization project.

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, 2022 and September 30, 2021:

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.

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

The tables below present net sales by end-market sector, adjusted to exclude surcharges, which represents a financial measure that has not been determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe presenting net sales by end-market sector, both on a gross basis and on a per ton basis, adjusted to exclude raw material and natural gas surcharges, provides additional insight into key drivers of net sales such as base price and product mix. Due to the fact that the surcharge mechanism can introduce volatility to our net sales, net sales adjusted to exclude surcharges provides management and investors clarity of our core pricing and results. Presenting net sales by end-market sector, adjusted to exclude surcharges including on a per ton basis, allows management and investors to better analyze key market indicators and trends and allows for enhanced comparison between our end-market sectors.

When surcharges are included in a customer agreement and are applicable (i.e., reach the threshold amount), based on the terms outlined in the respective agreement, surcharges are then included as separate line items on a customer's invoice. These additional surcharge line items adjust base prices to match cost fluctuations due to market conditions. Each month, the company will post on the surcharges page of its external website, as well as our customer portal, the scrap, alloy, and natural gas surcharges that will be applied (as a separate line item) to invoices dated in the following month (based upon shipment volumes in the following month). All surcharges invoiced are included in GAAP net sales.
