Consolidated operating earnings of $44.2 million, up 33% year-over-year, and adjusted EBITDA* of $79.6 million, 15% above first-quarter 2019 results
Net earnings totaled $0.80 per diluted share compared to first-quarter 2019 result of $0.22 per diluted share
Cash flow from operations of $228.6, up 78% from first-quarter 2019 results

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (May 5, 2020) - Compass Minerals (NYSE: CMP), a leading global provider of essential minerals, reported year-over-year growth in first-quarter 2020 sales, operating earnings and adjusted EBITDA* with Salt and both Plant Nutrition segments contributing positive earnings growth compared to prior-year results.

“Despite mild winter weather throughout most of our highway deicing service markets, our strong Salt price performance and a rebound in specialty plant nutrition demand in both North and South America fueled strong earnings results for us in the first quarter,” said Kevin S. Crutchfield, Compass Minerals president and CEO. “Operating as an essential business in a time of societal challenge, we are focused on protecting the health of our employees, ensuring our customers’ needs are met and maintaining the strong momentum we have created through improved production at our North American mines and our continuing enterprise-wide optimization effort. We also continue to carefully monitor and conduct deep risk assessments of the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic across our operations and in our core markets. While disruptions and commercial impacts have been minimal to date, we remain vigilant in our preparation for potential changes to these conditions.”

Net earnings for the first quarter of 2020 were $27.6 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared to $7.6 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the prior-year first quarter. This improvement was driven by a year-over-year increase in operating earnings of $11.0 million as well as other non-operating foreign exchange gains of $14.3 million compared to other non-operating foreign exchange losses of $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2019.

*EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization), adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings are non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in tables at the end of this press release.

SALT BUSINESS SUMMARY
First-quarter 2020 Salt segment revenue totaled $287.8 million, a 6% decline from prior-year results, driven by a 13% decline in sales volumes partially offset by an 8% improvement in average selling prices. Both highway deicing and consumer and industrial salt sales volumes were depressed by below average winter throughout North America and the U.K. Highway deicing average sales price increased 12% due to improved North America highway deicing contract pricing, while consumer and industrial average selling price declined 3% due to sales mix impacts.

Despite lower revenue, Salt segment operating earnings increased 9% to $56.9 million from first-quarter 2019 results of $52.3 million, while EBITDA grew 6% to $71.5 million. Salt operating margin expanded to 19.8% from 17.1% in the prior year and EBITDA margin improved to 24.8% from 22.1%. These results were driven by higher average selling prices, partially offset by per-unit cost increases primarily related to lower production volumes in the U.K. and the retirement of certain mining components at Goderich that were upgraded during the March shutdown to support continued performance and reliability improvements.

Winter Weather Effect
Snow events in the 2020 first quarter in Compass Minerals’ North American market were approximately 24% below the 10-year average. For the full winter season, snow events were 13% below average. As a result, we estimate mild winter weather negatively impacted operating earnings by $15 million to $18 million in the first quarter and for the full winter season.

PLANT NUTRITION BUSINESS SUMMARY
A return to normal weather conditions in key North American crop markets as well as improved crop economics in Brazil generated increased demand for the company's specialty plant nutrition products in North and South America during the first quarter of 2020 compared to first-quarter 2019. As a result, first-quarter 2020 sales and earnings significantly increased from prior-year levels for the company's Plant Nutrition business.

Plant Nutrition North America segment revenue in the first quarter of 2020 totaled $60.6 million, up 63% from prior-year results that were negatively impacted by cold and wet weather in key North American markets. Sales volumes increased 68% while average selling prices declined approximately 4% compared to 2019 first-quarter results. First-quarter 2020 operating earnings increased to $5.2 million from a loss of $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2019. EBITDA increased $5.7 million to $15.7 million from prior-year results of $10.0 million.

Page 3 of 13

Both operating earnings and EBITDA benefited from increased sales volumes and lower shipping and handling costs, partially offset by lower average selling prices.

Plant Nutrition South America segment first-quarter 2020 revenue totaled $62.8 million, a 9% increase from 2019 results driven by an 18% increase in sales volumes partially offset by an 8% decline in average selling prices. In local currency, revenue grew 24% and average selling prices increased 5% from first-quarter 2019 results. Both agriculture and chemical solutions sales volumes increased compared to the first quarter of 2019. First-quarter 2020 operating earnings improved to $0.3 million compared to a loss of $2.6 million in the prior year, while EBITDA of $5.2 million increased $2.3 million from 2019 first-quarter results. These results were primarily driven by the increase in agriculture product sales, which benefited from improved farmer economics and fertilizer affordability compared to prior year, as well as increased chemical solutions sales driven by year-over-year growth in water treatment demand. Operating earnings and EBITDA also benefited from lower per-unit costs compared to prior year.

OTHER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
The company reported a first-quarter 2020 gain on foreign exchange of $14.3 million compared to a loss on foreign exchange of $5.0 million in the prior-year quarter. This result was primarily driven by the significant devaluation of the Canadian dollar during the first quarter.

Interest expense increased $2.8 million from first-quarter 2019 levels to $19.0 million as a result of a higher blended interest rate following the company's bond issuance and credit facility refinancing in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Income tax expense increased from $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 to $11.7 million in the first quarter of 2020 due to higher pre-tax income. In March, the company received a $55 million refund from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and expects approximately $2 million in additional refunds from various U.S. state tax authorities later in 2020.

Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of 2020 totaled $228.6 million, an increase of 78% from the prior year. Excluding the $55 million tax refund, cash flow from operations was 35% above first-quarter 2019 results primarily due to enterprise-wide working capital improvements and increased operating earnings.

The company ended the quarter with about $110 million in cash and approximately $60 million drawn on the company's $300 million revolving credit facility. The company's leverage ratio (net debt-to-EBITDA) as calculated under its credit agreement was below 3.7x at the end of the 2020 first quarter.

Strategic Review Update
In light of the current pandemic and its impact on the global economy and capital markets, we have decided to temporarily suspend our strategic review of our Plant Nutrition South

America business. We continue to believe this is a strong and attractive specialty agriculture business which can deliver growth. We remain focused on optimizing its operations and are very pleased with its first-quarter performance and rest-of-year outlook.

COVID-19 IMPACT AND OUTLOOK
As previously disclosed, the company has instituted several measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Employee welfare: Our management team has taken multiple actions to limit the exposure of employees to the spread of COVID-19, including instituting remote working where possible, adjusting shift schedules and crew sizes, restricting visitation to operational sites, prohibiting all business-related commercial air travel and increasing sanitation of offices and common areas within our facilities.
Operations: Our manufacturing facilities in North America and Brazil remained in operation throughout the first quarter. Operations at our U.K. salt mine were idled near the end of March 2020 due to the very mild winter weather experienced in that market, along with U.K. government guidance on COVID-19 preventative measures.
Supply chain and logistics: To date, we have experienced no material supply chain or logistics issues. We continue to evaluate potential supply chain and logistics impacts, proactively increase inventory levels of critical sourced inputs and identify secondary suppliers where possible. Both our operations and our logistics partners are deemed “essential” under current governmental guidance and we have worked to ensure we understand and comply with their safety precautions to limit potential disruptions.

Our current expectations for full-year 2020 adjusted EBITDA of $330 million to $370 million reflect the impact of mild first-quarter winter weather and an expected weak Brazilian currency for the remainder of the year. We have reduced our 2020 Salt sales volume outlook due to first-quarter winter weather weakness. We have also slightly decreased our 2020 sales volume outlook for Plant Nutrition North America to account for potential weakness stemming from COVID-19 in our core specialty crop markets. In Plant Nutrition South America our outlook is unchanged as we continue to expect agriculture product demand growth versus prior year. In addition, operational improvements are still expected to drive increased operating earnings and EBITDA, particularly in the Salt business, in the second-half of 2020. We will continue to monitor our end markets very closely for negative impacts from COVID-19. We are also pressure-testing our 2020 and 2021 business plan under various scenarios in order to assess and prioritize potential cost savings activities which we believe would mitigate potential impacts to our business outlook and liquidity position.

For the second quarter of 2020, we expect Salt segment revenue to continue benefiting from improved average selling prices as well as lower logistics costs compared to prior year, which should offset higher year-over-year per-unit costs stemming from lower U.K. production.

In the Plant Nutrition North America segment, given the robust sales generated in the first quarter, we expect a more modest year-over-year increase in second-quarter 2020 sales volumes with flat to slightly lower average selling prices compared to prior year.

Our Plant Nutrition South America segment continues to benefit from strong grower economics, which we anticipate will continue to generate year-over-year growth in revenue and earnings, although the expected weaker Brazilian currency versus prior year could offset most of these improvements as reported in U.S. dollars.

Non-GAAP Measures
Management uses a variety of measures to evaluate the company’s and its operating segments’ performance. While the consolidated financial statements provide an understanding of the company’s overall results of operations, financial condition and cash flows, management analyzes components of the consolidated financial statements to identify certain trends and evaluate specific performance areas. In addition to using U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) financial measures, management uses EBITDA, EBITDA margin, EBITDA adjusted for items which management believes are not indicative of the company’s ongoing operating performance (“Adjusted EBITDA”) and adjusted EBITDA margin to evaluate the operating performance of the company’s core business operations because its resource allocation, financing methods, cost of capital and income tax positions are managed at a corporate level, apart from the activities of the operating segments, and the operating facilities are located in different taxing jurisdictions, which can cause considerable variation in net earnings. The company also uses EBITDA, EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin to assess its consolidated and segment operating performance and return on capital against other companies and to evaluate potential acquisitions or other capital projects. These measures are not calculated under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings, operating earnings, cash flows or other financial data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of overall profitability or liquidity. EBITDA, EBITDA margin, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin exclude stock-based compensation, interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization, each of which are an essential element of the company’s cost structure and cannot be eliminated. Consequently, any measure that excludes these elements has material limitations. While EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are frequently used as measures of operating performance, these terms are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to the potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. The calculation of these measures as used by management and a reconciliation to comparable GAAP measures is set forth in the following tables.
