FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CARNEGIE, PA

November 4, 2021

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

 

 

Sales up 7% versus prior year quarter

 

 

Forged and Cast Engineered Products Backlog up 16% sequentially

 

 

Price increase actions commenced

 

 

Cost reduction actions in progress and capital equipment improvement plan on track

Carnegie, PA, November 4, 2021 – Ampco-Pittsburgh Corporation (NYSE: AP) (the “Corporation” or “Ampco-Pittsburgh”) reported net sales of $81.2 million and $260.4 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $75.7 million and $241.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The increase is primarily attributable to higher sales of forged engineered products to the steel distribution and energy markets and higher sales of cast rolls for hot strip mills.

Loss from operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, was $2.4 million and $1.0 million, respectively, compared to income from operations of $0.2 million and $4.4 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. The decline primarily reflects under-recovery of the inflationary effects of production costs as well as higher maintenance spending associated with extended machine outages in the Forged and Cast Engineered Products segment, which more than offset the effect of higher sales and improved absorption of manufacturing costs from higher production levels. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the decline additionally reflects an insurance recovery of $0.8 million received in the first quarter of the prior year.

Commenting on the quarter, Ampco-Pittsburgh’s CEO, Brett McBrayer, said, “While I am proud of how our team has been able to navigate and mitigate much of the supply chain issues that nearly all manufacturers are now facing, we have seen significant inflationary pressures impacting our business. Our sales agreements with index-based surcharges do not uniformly cover all inflationary cost elements and our pricing is under-recovering the rapid rise in operating costs in the Forged and Cast Engineered Products Segment. As a result, we are now implementing price increase actions across the business.”


Mr. McBrayer continued, “The plant downtime we took for planned maintenance during the quarter positions us well for the expected higher production rates evident with our backlog growth. The extended outages of some of our key equipment further emphasize the importance of the plant modernization capital projects we have underway to further reduce our cost structure. As we look to the future, our recently announced pricing actions should help improve our margins and the increase in the backlog for the Forged and Cast Engineered Products segment points to top-line growth in 2022.”

Investment-related income for the three months ended September 30, 2021, declined compared to the prior year due to the timing of dividend income recorded one quarter earlier this year, but is approximately comparable year-to-date. Interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, declined in comparison to the prior year based on reduced debt. Other – net improved for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, due to higher pension income and gains on foreign exchange transactions in the current quarter and fewer losses year-to-date.

The income tax provision for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, includes an unusual expense of $0.4 million, or $0.02 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 second. The income tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, includes a benefit of $3.5 million due to expanded tax loss carryback provisions made possible by the CARES Act.

Basic loss per share was $0.08 and $0.02 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. This compares to earnings of $0.07 and $0.45 per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively. Basic earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, included a $0.34 per share combined benefit for the CARES Act tax loss carryback and the insurance recovery.

Segment Results

Forged and Cast Engineered Products

Sales for the Forged and Cast Engineered Products segment for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, improved from the prior year period primarily due to higher sales of forged engineered products to the oil and gas and steel distribution markets and higher sales of cast rolls for hot strip mills.

Operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2021, declined compared to the prior year primarily due to under-recovery of the inflationary effects of production costs as well as higher maintenance spending associated with extended machine outages, which more than offset the effect of higher sales and improved absorption from higher production levels. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the decline additionally reflects an insurance recovery of $0.8 million received in the prior year.

Air and Liquid Processing

Sales for the Air and Liquid Processing segment for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, declined slightly compared to the prior year due to delays in availability of trucking and certain parts due to supply chain issues, but operating results were comparable due to higher pricing and productivity improvements.
