FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARNEGIE, PA

August 9, 2021

Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (NYSE: AP) Announces Second Quarter 2021 Results

 

   

Sales up 24% versus prior year quarter and up 6% sequentially

 

   

Basic EPS up $0.01 per share versus prior year quarter and up $0.05 sequentially

 

   

Improving order activity with backlog up 6% sequentially

Carnegie, PA, August 9, 2021 – Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (NYSE: AP) (the “Corporation” or “Ampco-Pittsburgh”) reported net sales of $92.4 million and $179.2 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $74.8 million and $165.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. The increase is primarily attributable to higher shipments of mill rolls and higher shipments of forged engineered products.

Income (loss) from operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, was $0.5 million and $1.4 million, respectively, compared to $(0.1) million and $4.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2021, the improvement primarily reflects the impacts of higher shipment volumes and improved cost absorption from higher production levels in the current quarter compared to significant downtime from the idling of manufacturing facilities associated with the early stages of the pandemic in the prior year quarter. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, income from operations declined as higher raw material costs net of surcharges, a less favorable sales mix, and an insurance recovery of $0.8 million in the prior year more than offset the benefit of higher shipment volumes in the current year.

Investment-related income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, includes a dividend of $1.0 million from one of the Corporation’s Chinese joint ventures. Interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, declined in comparison to the prior year based on reduced debt. Other – net was approximately comparable for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2021, and 2020, though improved for the six months ended June 30, 2021, due to higher pension income and unrealized gains on Rabbi Trust assets.

The income tax provision for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, includes unusual expenses totaling $0.7 million, or $0.04 per common share, for the revaluation of certain deferred income tax liabilities for a future tax rate change enacted in the U.K. during the quarter and for the restructuring of a foreign sales office. The income tax benefit for the six months ended June 30, 2020, includes a benefit of $3.5 million due to expanded tax loss carryback provisions made possible by the CARES Act.


Basic earnings per share were $0.06 and $0.07 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. This compares to $0.05 and $0.38 per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. Basic earnings per share for the six months ended June 30, 2020, included a $0.34 per share combined benefit for the CARES Act tax loss carryback and the insurance recovery.

Commenting on the quarter, Ampco-Pittsburgh’s CEO, Brett McBrayer, said, “Sales and earnings for the second quarter improved sequentially and exceeded prior year, when we idled our facilities to manage the sharp drop in demand and to preserve liquidity due to the pandemic. Now, a year later, we have seen capacity utilization in the global rolled steel sector returning to pre-pandemic levels while raw material prices have risen. Order activity continues to improve, and we expect to see a full top line recovery to pre-pandemic sales in 2022. We have been managing through supply chain and logistical challenges which have impacted our operations. Some of our customers are likewise facing similar challenges and, as a result, have pushed out deliveries to match their current production capabilities. In the third quarter, we will execute plant maintenance shutdowns to prepare our machinery for higher production levels. Also, during the quarter, we amended and extended our revolving credit facility to assure significant liquidity for our strategic capital expenditures and to support anticipated growth in working capital.”

Segment Results

Forged and Cast Engineered Products

Sales for the Forged and Cast Engineered Products segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, improved from the prior year period primarily due to higher shipments of forged and cast mill rolls as well as higher shipments of forged engineered products to the oil and gas and steel distribution markets. Operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2021, improved compared to the prior year primarily due to the higher volume of shipments and improved cost absorption from higher production levels in the current quarter compared to significant downtime from the pandemic-related idling of manufacturing facilities in the prior year quarter. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, operating results declined primarily as the effect of higher shipment volumes could not offset the impacts of higher raw material costs net of surcharges, a less favorable sales mix, and an insurance recovery recorded in the prior year.

Air and Liquid Processing

Sales and operating results for the Air and Liquid Processing segment for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, decreased compared to the prior year primarily due to a lower volume of centrifugal pumps shipments driven mainly by customer-requested delays.
