A. M. Castle & Co. Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results


November 5, 2015
By Business Wire News

OAK BROOK, Ill.

A. M. Castle & Co. (NYSE:CAS) (“the Company” or “Castle”), a global distributor of specialty metal and plastic products, value-added services and supply chain solutions, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

President and CEO Steve Scheinkman commented, “Our transition plan is succeeding on many important fronts, despite challenging market conditions. Some of the initial proof points of this success are: (1) Castle generated $8.7 million of positive operating cash flow this quarter, the first quarter since 2013 that Castle generated positive operating cash flow; (2) Borrowings under our revolving credit facility were reduced by $5.2 million during the quarter and we are fully engaged in a strategic refinancing process to reduce our cost of capital going forward; (3) Operating expenses, before restructuring charges, were reduced by $5.1 million on a sequential basis in the quarter and additional initiatives have been implemented that we expect will yield further expense reductions in the fourth quarter and through 2016; (4) Gross margins, excluding a $22.3 million charge to write-down inventory in the second quarter of 2015, improved from 24.9% to 25.4% sequentially, despite a deflationary pricing environment driven by reductions in inter-branch transfers and double handling achieved by the facility consolidations; (5) Our systems and capabilities to effectively manage our assets are greatly improved as evidenced by a further $13.2 million reduction in inventory on a replacement cost basis during the quarter; and, (6) Customers are embracing our new branch service strategy and we believe that we have gained market share in our product lines measured in comparative tons shipped during the quarter.”

Scheinkman continued, “The steel, plastics and other commodity markets have been facing particularly challenging conditions and these challenges are expected to continue in the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, we believe the changes we have made in consolidating facilities, reducing the cost structure, driving more accountability down to the local branch level and improving customer relationships are already yielding quantifiable improvements for Castle and positioning us for long term prosperity.”

During the quarter, the Company completed the closure and consolidation of five facilities on or ahead of schedule and broke ground on its new 208,000 square foot facility in Janesville, Wisconsin. The Janesville facility is expected to begin providing material to customers in November and is scheduled to become a fully operational center of excellence for the Company’s bar business in the first quarter of 2016 allowing for the closure and sale of its Franklin Park, Illinois facility.

Scheinkman added, “While maintaining our high standards for safety, quality, delivery performance and focus on serving our customers, our new branch managers working closely with our operations teams were able to reposition approximately 16,000 tons of metal as part of our facility consolidation plan. We expect to realize the full impact of the actions taken this quarter on operating expenses going forward as well as additional cost reductions upon completion of the consolidation of the Franklin Park facility into the new Janesville facility.”

Scheinkman stated, “While the steel industry in general faces a challenging environment, the conditions are different for each of our target markets. The energy market is particularly weak and this trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Industrial markets are generally soft, but there are pockets of opportunity, and our new, more nimble branch management strategies are enabling us to capitalize on more of those opportunities. The aerospace market remains strong, and we expect continued growth opportunities in this market. As a result, in the aggregate we saw our top line decrease by 7.5% from the previous quarter impacted primarily by industry-wide commodity price declines and to a lesser extent by volume declines including the elimination of unprofitable products. From a volume perspective, while our quarter over quarter tons sold to contractual accounts decreased by 8.6%, our transactional business increased by 5.7%. With our local branch management structure in place, supported by operational gains achieved through our facility consolidations, we have become more responsive to the needs of our customers resulting in the gains we are seeing in the transactional markets.”

“We are very pleased with the progress we have made and the early signs of success of our initiatives despite the challenging market conditions. We have a lot more work to do, but we are increasingly confident that Castle is on the right path to not only respond to current challenges, but to thrive for the long term,” concluded Scheinkman.

Third Quarter 2015 Results

Consolidated net sales were $184.7 million for the third quarter 2015 compared to $245.5 million in the third quarter 2014. The Company reported a third quarter 2015 net loss of $26.3 million, or a loss of $1.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $7.3 million, or a loss of $0.31 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted non-GAAP net loss, which excludes restructuring activity and other items reconciled in the tables below, for the third quarter 2015 was $20.8 million compared to adjusted non-GAAP net loss of $12.9 million in the third quarter 2014. The Company reported third quarter 2015 negative EBITDA of $9.8 million, compared to EBITDA of $6.5 million in the third quarter 2014. Third quarter 2015 and third quarter 2014 results were impacted by $2.3 million of foreign currency transaction gains in each of those quarters. In addition, $1.5 million from equity losses of the Company’s joint venture negatively impacted the third quarter 2015 results compared to the third quarter 2014 which was positively impacted by $2.2 million from equity in the earnings of the Company’s joint venture. Exclusive of restructuring activity and other items reconciled in the tables below, the Company reported a third quarter 2015 adjusted negative EBITDA loss of $4.3 million compared with adjusted EBITDA of $0.8 million in the third quarter 2014. The Company had an adjusted negative EBITDA loss of $5.0 million in the second quarter 2015.

Total restructuring charges recorded during the third quarter of 2015 were $1.2 million compared to income from restructuring activity of $5.1 million in the prior year period. Year-to-date, total restructuring charges were $40.0 million, $14.6 million of which represented cash charges. The cash charges to-date include an estimated $5.5 million charge from the withdrawal of a multi-employer pension plan that may be paid over 20 years. The Company’s total estimated cash and noncash charges to be incurred as part of its restructuring initiatives remain consistent with its initial estimated range of $49.5 million to $64.4 million. The Company’s estimate of cash proceeds related to the closure facilities is approximately $23 million.

“We have continued to implement the significant cost saving and asset management initiatives announced in April 2015,” said Pat Anderson, Executive Vice President and CFO. “Our progress towards this plan is evidenced by the improvement we have shown in our cash flow, inventory reduction, operating expense, and EBITDA performance. With a lowered cost structure and improved asset management, we believe we are better positioned to generate positive cash flow going forward, and we are fully engaged in a strategic refinancing process focused on improving our capital structure and lowering our interest expense.”

Net sales from the Metals segment during the third quarter 2015 were $150.6 million, which was 28.5% lower than the third quarter 2014 and 9.5% lower than the second quarter 2015. Tons sold per day were down 27.3% compared to the third quarter 2014 and down 2.7% compared to the second quarter 2015. Average selling price per ton sold was down 1.4% from the third quarter 2014 and down 7.1% from the second quarter 2015. The third quarter 2015 benefited from a favorable product mix which offset some of the impact of unfavorable pricing compared to the third quarter 2014 and the second quarter 2015. In the Plastics segment, third quarter 2015 net sales were $34.1 million, which was 2.0% lower compared to the third quarter 2014 but up 2.2% compared to the second quarter 2015.

Consolidated gross margins were 25.4% in the third quarter 2015 compared to 24.9% in the third quarter 2014. Gross margins in the third quarter 2015 included LIFO income of $1.5 million compared to a $0.4 million LIFO charge in the third quarter 2014. Excluding the LIFO impact, Metals segment gross margins were 23.4% in the third quarter 2015 compared to 24.4% in the prior year quarter. Metals segment gross margins in the second quarter 2015, excluding the $22.3 million restructuring charge for the write-down of inventory and LIFO income of $1.5 million, were 22.9%.

Excluding restructuring charges of $1.2 million, operating expenses were $57.8 million, or 31.3% of net sales, in the third quarter 2015, compared to $66.0 million, or 26.9% of net sales in third quarter 2014 (excluding restructuring income of $5.1 million), and $62.9 million, or 31.5% of net sales, in the second quarter 2015 (excluding restructuring charges of $15.6 million).

Net cash used in operations was $6.4 million during the first nine months of 2015, compared to net cash used in operations of $44.8 million during the first nine months of 2014. For the three months ended September 30, 2015, net cash flows from operations was $8.7 million. The Company had $68.3 million of borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility at September 30, 2015 and $28.2 million of additional unrestricted borrowing capacity available under the terms of the revolving credit facility. There were $59.2 million in borrowings under the revolving credit facility at December 31, 2014 and $73.5 million at June 30, 2015. The Company’s net debt-to-capital ratio was 85.5% at September 30, 2015 compared to 65.5% at December 31, 2014. Total debt outstanding, net of unamortized discount, was $322.7 million at September 30, 2015 and $310.1 million at December 31, 2014. Refer to the ‘Total Debt’ table below for details related to the Company’s outstanding debt obligations.

Scheinkman concluded, “The current soft market conditions and customer inventory de-stocking in response to deflationary pricing has certainly had an impact on our business as shipping tons and pricing have continued to decline for most of the products we sell. We believe, however, that the significant process changes we have been implementing will serve to increase sales and lower our cost structure helping to bring us back to positive EBITDA in 2016 and position us for revenue growth that will drive profitability going forward. With Castle’s asset rich balance sheet, coupled with the operational improvements we are implementing, we are determined to improve the Company’s capital structure, lower its cost of capital and enhance financial flexibility.”
