AK Steel Announces Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results
and Fourth Quarter Outlook

WEST CHESTER, OH, October 25, 2018 – AK Steel (NYSE: AKS) today reported its financial results for the third quarter of 2018.

Third Quarter 2018 Highlights
Net income of $67.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, versus $22.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, a year ago
Adjusted EBITDA of $160.8 million, or 9.3% of sales; highest third quarter since 2008
Sales of $1,735.6 million, a 16% increase from third quarter 2017

“Our results represented our best third quarter performance in 10 years and reflected strong market conditions and our focus on value-added products,” said Roger K. Newport, Chief Executive Officer of AK Steel. “We expect market conditions to remain positive, which should be reflected in selling prices and support continued strong performance in the fourth quarter and 2019 fiscal year.”
AK Steel reported net income of $67.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share of common stock, for the third quarter of 2018. For the third quarter of 2017, net income was $22.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.
The company’s adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section below) was $160.8 million, or 9.3% of net sales, for the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA increased 39% from $115.8 million, or 7.7% of net sales, in the third quarter a year ago. Higher steel selling prices and shipments during the recent third quarter, particularly to the distributors and converters market, more than offset higher costs for certain raw materials, transportation and supplies, including graphite electrodes, compared to the third quarter a year ago.
Net sales for the recent third quarter of $1.74 billion increased 16% compared to the third quarter of 2017 due to higher selling prices and higher shipments.
The company reported liquidity of $953.5 million at the end of the third quarter, consisting of cash and cash equivalents and $911.8 million of availability under the company’s revolving credit facility. The company reported outstanding borrowings under the credit facility of $365.0 million at September 30, 2018.
