TimkenSteel Announces Third-Quarter 2018 Results


Delivers net income in-line with guidance; exceeds Adjusted EBITDA(1) expectations
Third-quarter net sales increased 21 percent year over year with improved
product mix
Positioned to deliver continued earnings growth in 2019
 
CANTON, Ohio: October 25, 2018 - TimkenSteel (NYSE: TMST, timkensteel.com), a leader in customized alloy steel products and services, today reported third-quarter 2018 net sales of
$409.9 million and net income of $1.4 million or $0.03 per diluted share. In the same quarter last year, net sales were $339.1 million with a net loss of $5.9 million or minus $0.13 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the third quarter was $26.5 million, an increase of $7.7 million over the same quarter last year.
"We continue to build on our position as a leader in special bar quality steel to deliver a richer mix of products, and the third quarter demonstrated good results in that regard. Operational performance remains focused on safety and improved delivery,” said Tim Timken, chairman, CEO and president. “We plan to run production aggressively in the fourth quarter in anticipation of a strong start to 2019.”
THIRD-QUARTER 2018 FINANCIAL SUMMARY
Third-quarter net sales increased $70.8 million or 21 percent year over year.
Ship tons were approximately 295,500, an increase of 2 percent over the third quarter of 2017, due to continued end-market strength.
Net sales benefited from improved product mix, higher prices and surcharges, as well as increased volume.
Surcharge revenue of $107.1 million represents a 37.5 percent increase from the prior-year quarter as a result of higher volumes and a rise in the No. 1 Busheling Index.




(1) Please see discussion of non-GAAP financial measures in this news release.  Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 excludes $1.7 million of executive severance costs, and for the third-quarter 2017 excludes a $2.3 million loss from the remeasurement of benefit plans.

EBIT(1) increased to $6.7 million from a loss of $2.1 million for the same period a year ago. Adjusted EBIT(1) increased to $8.4 million from $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2017.
Improved profitability was primarily due to more favorable product mix resulting from more
energy and industrial volume and reduced billet sales, as well as higher prices and increased volume.
Manufacturing costs were higher year over year due to the timing of scheduled maintenance, with prior-year scheduled maintenance occurring in the fourth quarter.
Inflation of consumables not subject to surcharge resulted in higher costs compared to third-quarter 2017.
Melt utilization was 62 percent for the third quarter of 2018, compared with 74 percent in third-quarter 2017. The decrease in third-quarter melt utilization was driven primarily by the scheduled maintenance shutdown.
FOURTH-QUARTER 2018 OUTLOOK
Normal seasonality will impact fourth-quarter outlook as customers balance inventories.
Shipments are expected to be similar to fourth-quarter 2017 with continued improvement in mix.
Raw material spread is expected to be similar to third-quarter 2018.
Higher manufacturing costs and consumables inflation will be a headwind.
Adjusted EBITDA(1) is projected to be between $15 million and $25 million. At this time, the company is unable to reconcile its fourth-quarter outlook for Adjusted EBITDA(1) to a comparable GAAP range due to an expected full re-measurement of its pension and OPEB plan assets and obligations at December 31, 2018. The amount of the gain or loss from the
re-measurement cannot currently be estimated.
Other Guidance
2018 capital spending is projected to be approximately $40 million.



(1) Please see discussion of non-GAAP financial measures in this news release.  Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 excludes $1.7 million of executive severance costs, and for the third-quarter 2017 excludes a $2.3 million loss from the remeasurement of benefit plans.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TimkenSteel reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures. This earnings release includes references to the following non-GAAP financial measures: EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. These are important financial measures used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as these measures are representative of the Company’s performance and provide improved comparability of results. See the attached schedules for definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures referred to above and corresponding reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. At this time, the company is unable to reconcile its fourth quarter outlook for Adjusted EBITDA to a comparable GAAP range due to an expected full re-measurement of its pension and OPEB plan assets and obligations at December 31, 2018. The amount of the gain or loss from the re-measurement cannot currently be estimated. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as additions to, and not as alternatives for, TimkenSteel's results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and other companies may not define the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses in the same way.

Reconciliation of Earnings (Loss) Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) (1), Adjusted EBIT (3), Earnings (Loss) Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) (2) and Adjusted EBITDA (4) to GAAP Net Income (Loss):


This reconciliation is provided as additional relevant information about the Company's performance.
