ATLANTA – February 10, 2022 – CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CTT) today reported fourth quarter and full-year 2021 results. The company also declared a cash dividend of $0.075 per share for its common stockholders of record as of February 28, 2022, payable on March 15, 2022.

Brian M. Davis, CatchMark's Chief Executive Officer, said: “CatchMark exceeded our 2021 guidance for net income and met our 2021 guidance for Adjusted EBITDA, continuing our long track record of achieving timber sales prices substantially above market averages, while maintaining the highest productivity per acre among our peers. These results again attest to the prime quality of our timberlands in leading mill markets and our success in managing our delivered wood sales model supplemented by opportunistic stumpage sales. Following the completion of recent strategic large dispositions and the Triple T exit, we are now

focused on growth opportunities in the U.S. South, the top U.S. mill region and one of the most important global wood baskets. Going forward, we see powerful macro forces — regional home construction, mill expansions, and the ongoing decline of Canadian market competition due to pine beetle infestation and British Columbia harvest deferrals — helping drive sustainable product price appreciation in our markets. At the same time, robust demand should continue to help us meet our timberland sales targets, and our solid capital position provides support for a disciplined growth strategy, including acquisitions and various environmental initiatives.”

FOURTH QUARTER 2021 RESULTS

The following table summarizes the fourth quarter and comparable prior year period results:

Harvest Volume (tons)499,610 578,033 (78,423)(14)%
Acres Sold400 4,000 (3,600)(91)%

Fourth quarter 2021 net income and earnings per share of $33.9 million and $0.70, respectively, resulted primarily from the company’s exit from the Triple T joint venture, proceeds from which were used to repay debt and further improve the company’s capital position to grow its portfolio of prime timberlands in the U.S. South’s premier mill markets.

Business Segments Overview

For fourth quarter 2021, lower year-over-year total revenues and Adjusted EBITDA resulted from:
lower harvest volumes post recent large dispositions, most notably the highly profitable Bandon sale;
selling fewer timberland acres due to the timing of most sales earlier in the year; and
lower asset management fees due to the Triple T exit.

The revenue impact of planned lower harvest volumes was lessened by significant increases in timber sales pricing as the company extended its long-sustained pricing premiums over U.S. South-wide averages.

Todd P. Reitz, CatchMark's Chief Resources Officer, said: “Results continue to reflect the benefits and strength of our operating model, highlighted by the flexibility gained using delivered wood and opportunistic stumpage sales. We continue to achieve substantial pricing premiums, the strategic outgrowth of concentrating prime timberland holdings in leading U.S. South mill markets. The residual impacts of regional wet weather in the third quarter kept pressure on fourth quarter logging production while customer raw material inventories remained low. The pricing tension benefited CatchMark in our markets and the favorable supply/demand dynamics, fueled by increasing homebuilding, repair and remodeling and ongoing mill expansions, remain in place entering 2022.”
As planned, timber sales revenue and Harvest EBITDA decreased year-over-year due to lower harvest volumes.
Lower harvest volumes followed from execution of large dispositions under the company’s capital recycling program during 2021, including the highly successful Bandon property sale in Oregon and the profitable Oglethorpe large disposition in Georgia.
Significant timber sales price increases in the U.S. South were generated year-over-year — 32% for pulpwood and 21% for sawtimber, and sequential quarter-over-quarter — 19% for pulpwood and 10% for sawtimber.
Pulpwood and sawtimber stumpage pricing for the fourth quarter registered 52% and 38% premiums, respectively, over TimberMart-South U.S. South-wide pricing averages.

Most of CatchMark’s 2021 timberland sales were executed earlier in the year, resulting in lower year-over-over activity during the fourth quarter — 400 acres sold for $1.0 million compared to 4,000 acres sold for $6.8 million in 2020.
Pricing for fourth quarter 2021 land sales of $2,597 per acre was significantly higher than the $1,662 per acre realized in fourth quarter 2020.
Margins also increased significantly year-over-year — 44% in the fourth quarter 2021 compared to 19% in 2020.
Excellent pricing was achieved for the sold acres despite lower stocking levels as compared to prior year and compared to CatchMark’s portfolio average of 39 tons per acre.

Lower asset management fees and investment management Adjusted EBITDA were attributable to the Triple T joint venture exit and the replacement of its asset management agreement with the transition services agreement effective through first quarter 2022.
The Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture contributed income of $63,000 from wetland mitigation banking activity. After completing the highly-successful sale of the Dawsonville Bluffs timberlands in 2020, CatchMark continues to receive asset management fees and incentive-based promotes from managing the venture’s remaining environmental initiatives.

Despite planned lower harvest volumes, CatchMark generated $72.5 million of timber sales revenue in 2021, a slight increase over 2020, resulting from $2.6 million in higher timber sales revenue in the U.S. South offset by $2.5 million in lower timber sales revenue from the Pacific Northwest resulting from the company’s sale of its Bandon property.
Harvest EBITDA was $34.2 million, the same as in 2020, despite the planned decrease in total harvest volumes and successful mid-year disposition of the Bandon property.

Exhibit 99.1
Total harvest volumes of 2.05 million were in-line with company guidance.
Higher U.S. South timber sales revenue — 4% above 2020 — resulted from strong pulpwood and sawtimber pricing and a higher mix of delivered sales volume, offset by a planned 11% decrease in harvest volume, maintaining consistent productivity on a per-acre basis.
In the U.S. South, CatchMark’s net timber sales prices for pulpwood and sawtimber were 17% and 14% higher, respectively, compared to the prior year, trending with increases in South-wide prices.
Pulpwood and sawtimber stumpage prices for the year also realized 54% and 20% premiums over U.S. South-wide averages, reflecting CatchMark’s concentration of prime timberlands located in high-demand markets.
Prior to selling the Bandon property in August 2021, CatchMark generated $9.0 million in timber sales revenue in the Pacific Northwest, harvesting 90% of full-year harvest volumes and capturing a 7% increase in weighted-average sawtimber pricing compared to prior year. The disposition resulted in a gain of $23.4 million and refocused CatchMark’s operations on the U.S. South.

Timberland sales revenue decreased by 10% year-over-year as a result of selling 19% fewer acres than in 2020.
The company achieved an 11% higher per-acre price than 2020 despite a 19% average lower total stocking, capitalizing on strong market demand.
Margins increased to 31% compared to 21% in 2020.
Acres sold had an average merchantable timber stocking of 21 tons per acre, compared to 26 tons in 2020, significantly lower than CatchMark’s portfolio stocking average of 39 tons.

Asset management fee revenue totaled $11.5 million for 2021, comprised of $11.2 million earned from the Triple T joint venture and $0.3 million earned from the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture, including incentive-based promotes for exceeding investment hurdles.

Investment Management EBITDA totaled $12.3 million, 3% lower than 2020, due to a $0.7 million decrease in asset management fee revenues resulting from the Triple T exit, offset by a $0.4 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA from the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture.

CatchMark continued to earn a monthly Triple T management fee of $0.7 million pursuant to the transition service agreement, which will terminate on March 31, 2022.

CAPITAL POSITION AND SHARE REPURCHASES

CatchMark’s Chief Financial Officer Ursula Godoy-Arbelaez said: “All of our deleveraging resulting from strategic initiatives, including simplifying our business, focusing operations in the U.S. South through the successful Bandon sale and exiting Triple T, have positioned us well for the next growth phase, including acquisitions and various environmental initiatives. In addition to debt capital, we have ample cash on hand to execute on growth opportunities.”
During 2021, CatchMark increased its liquidity and strengthened its capital position through two profitable capital recycling dispositions — Bandon and Oglethorpe, as well as exiting Triple T.
The two large dispositions, comprising 23,100 acres, totaled $107.5 million and generated a gain of $24.2 million. The Bandon Property in the Pacific Northwest sold for $100 million, on which a $23.4 million gain was recognized. Net proceeds of $95.4 million were used to pay down outstanding debt.
At year end, liquidity totaled $277 million, including borrowing capacity of $254 million and $23 million of cash on-hand.
Dividends of approximately $23.3 million, or $0.48 per share, were fully covered by record net cash provided by operating activities of $47.2 million and cash available for distribution (CAD) of $34.1 million, below the company’s target CAD payout ratio range of 75% to 85%.

Share Repurchases: No share repurchases occurred under CatchMark’s share repurchase program during the year. CatchMark had approximately $13.7 million remaining in the program for future repurchases as of December 31, 2021.

2022 GUIDANCE

For full-year 2022, CatchMark projects a GAAP net loss between $5 million and $7 million and Adjusted EBITDA between $35 million and $41 million. Harvest volumes are forecast between 1.6 million and 1.8 million tons, reflecting consistent annual productivity on a per-acre basis, with a sawtimber mix of approximately 45-50%. Harvests are expected to increase during each of the first three quarters with fourth quarter volume approximating the average. Asset management fee revenue is projected at approximately $2 million and timberland sales are anticipated to range between $15 million and $17 million.

Davis said: “Timber sales pricing will be key to driving our 2022 performance. We expect macro demand fundamentals in the U.S. South to continue to produce sustained pricing tension, which will benefit in particular the leading markets where we concentrate our operations. All indicators point to significant growth in the U.S. South for the lumber, pellet, and pulp industries, leading to tightening wood markets and price appreciation over time. It’s the largest wood market in North America and the only region which is appreciably expanding. The pellet industry is the fastest growing not only in North America but also globally. And sawmills are also expanding to meet increased demand especially given longstanding and ongoing population growth in the region. We believe we are positioned for success in the right place at the right time.”

Exhibit 99.1
This outlook does not include potential contributions from future acquisitions and investments, including monetization of the company’s environmental initiatives.

Davis continued: “In assessing new investments, we continue to be diligent and disciplined, seeking timberlands that will fit into our growth strategy. We are focusing on acquisitions with near-term cash accretion or long-term accretive portfolio attributes as well as potential for providing environmentally-focused income opportunities. We see opportunities in the marketplace, including bolt-on local acquisitions to our existing portfolio.”

(1)    Includes chip-n-saw and sawtimber.
(2)    Prices per ton are rounded to the nearest dollar.
(3)    Excludes value of timber reservations. For the year ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, we retained 61,900 tons and 132,200 tons of merchantable inventory, with a sawtimber mix of 35% and 49%, respectively.
(4)    Large dispositions are sales of blocks of timberland properties in one or several transactions with the objective to generate proceeds to fund capital allocation priorities. Large dispositions may or may not have a higher or better use than timber production or result in a price premium above the land’s timber production value. Such dispositions are infrequent in nature, are not part of core operations, and would cause material variances in comparative results if not reported separately.
(5)    Represents properties owned by Triple T joint venture in which CatchMark owned a common partnership interest; and Dawsonville Bluffs, LLC, a joint venture in which CatchMark owns a 50% membership interest.
(6)    Delivered timber sales price includes contract logging and hauling costs.
(7)    Excludes value of timber reservations, which retained 56,300 tons of merchantable inventory, with a sawtimber mix of 55% for the year ended December 31, 2020.

(1)    For the purpose of the above reconciliation, amortization includes amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of operating lease assets and liabilities, amortization of intangible lease assets, and amortization of mainline road costs, which are included in either interest expense, land rent expense, or other operating expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. Includes non-cash basis of timber and timberland assets written-off related to timberland sold, terminations of timberland leases and casualty losses.
(2)    Reflects our share of depletion, amortization, and basis of timberland and mitigation credits sold of the unconsolidated Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture.
(3)    Includes non-cash basis of timber and timberland assets written-off related to timberland sold, terminations of timberland leases and casualty losses.
(4)    Large dispositions are sales of blocks of timberland properties in one or several transactions with the objective to generate proceeds to fund capital allocation priorities. Large dispositions may or may not have a higher or better use than timber production or result in a price premium above the land’s timber production value. Such dispositions are infrequent in nature, are not part of core operations, and would cause material variances in comparative results if not reported separately.
(5)    Reflects HLBV losses from the Triple T joint venture, which is determined based on a hypothetical liquidation of the underlying joint venture at book value as of the reporting date. We exited from the Triple T joint venture on October 14, 2021.
(6)    Reflects one-time, non-recurring post-employment benefits associated with the retirement of our former CEO, including severance pay, payroll taxes, professional fees, and accrued dividend equivalents.
(7)    Includes certain cash expenses paid, or reimbursement received, that management believes do not directly reflect the core business operations of our timberland portfolio on an on-going basis, including costs required to be expensed by GAAP related to acquisitions, transactions, joint ventures or new business initiatives.
(8)    Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of operating performance. EBITDA is defined by the SEC as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; however, we have excluded certain other expenses which we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating results of our timberland portfolio, and we refer to this measure as Adjusted EBITDA. As such, our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Due to the significant amount of timber assets subject to depletion, significant income (losses) from unconsolidated joint ventures based on hypothetical liquidation book value, or HLBV, and the significant amount of financing subject to interest and amortization expense, management considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important measure of our financial performance. By providing this non-GAAP financial measure, together with the reconciliation above, we believe we are enhancing investors' understanding of our business and our ongoing results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are

executing our strategic initiatives. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for net income, cash flow from operations, or other financial statement data presented in accordance with GAAP in our consolidated financial statements as indicators of our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
