Schnitzer Reports First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Year-Over-Year Improvement in Earnings Per Share

Productivity and Cost Reduction Initiatives Contributed Significantly to Results

Implementing New Initiatives in Auto Parts Business

PORTLAND, Ore.--()--Schnitzer Steel Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCHN) today reported financial results for its fiscal 2015 first quarter ended November 30, 2014. During the quarter, the market experienced the steepest decline in ferrous prices since 2012. From September through November 2014, ferrous export selling prices declined approximately $80 per ton, or 20%, and ferrous domestic prices declined approximately $60 per ton, or 15%. For the quarter, we reported adjusted earnings per share of $0.08, excluding the adverse impact of reselling or modifying the terms of certain previously contracted bulk ferrous shipments and charges attributed to restructuring. This compares to the first quarter of fiscal 2014 adjusted loss per share of $0.18, excluding charges attributed to restructuring. The reported loss per share of $0.09 for the first quarter ended November 30, 2014 compares to a reported loss per share of $0.23 for the prior year quarter.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2015, all three business segments generated positive operating income, largely due to benefits from productivity initiatives. Our Metals Recycling and Auto Parts Businesses were both significantly impacted by the decline in ferrous selling prices, resulting in an adverse impact from average inventory accounting estimated to be approximately $9 million, or $0.23 per share, which offset the benefits of productivity improvements and cost savings. Metals Recycling's adjusted operating income per ton of $8 excluded the impact of reselling or modifying the terms of certain previously contracted bulk ferrous shipments for delivery during the first quarter of approximately $6 per ton. Metals Recycling's reported operating income per ton of $2 increased from $1 operating income per ton reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, notwithstanding an estimated adverse impact of approximately $7 per ton from average inventory accounting. In Auto Parts, operating income of $2 million included an estimated adverse impact of average inventory accounting of approximately $2 million. Our Steel Manufacturing Business generated $6 million in operating income, continuing to benefit from strong demand in West Coast construction markets and contributions from productivity initiatives.

"While global commodity markets remain challenging, the recovering US economy is driving higher domestic demand for steel. Our Steel Manufacturing Business more than tripled its first quarter operating income versus last year benefiting from higher selling prices, increased rolling mill utilization and contributions from productivity improvements. In our Metals Recycling Business, we delivered ahead of schedule on our productivity improvement and cost savings initiatives which contributed significantly toward year-over-year improved performance in that segment," said Tamara Lundgren, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are continuing to take steps to improve business efficiency and reduce our cost base across our organization. We have identified further targeted initiatives in our Auto Parts Business and now anticipate annual benefits of $14 million, which is up from the $7 million we previously announced, approximately half of which we expect to realize during the second half of fiscal 2015. We believe these actions will continue to enhance our performance and should provide greater opportunity for margin expansion as market conditions improve.”

Sales Volumes: Ferrous sales volumes of 1 million tons in the first quarter declined 4% from the prior year quarter, primarily due to weaker export demand and the impact of the lower price environment on scrap supply and the timing of shipments. Nonferrous sales volumes of 127 million pounds increased 3% from the prior year quarter, largely due to higher processing efficiencies.

In total, export customers accounted for 64% of our ferrous sales volumes. Ferrous and nonferrous products were shipped to 16 countries, with Turkey, Egypt and Thailand the top export destinations for ferrous shipments.

Pricing: Beginning in August, ferrous scrap metal pricing dropped sharply, resulting in a decline in average export selling prices of $33 per ton, or 9%, from fourth quarter levels. Nonferrous prices in the first quarter were in line sequentially.

Margins: Reported operating income per ton of $2 increased by $1 per ton from the prior year quarter, largely due to benefits from productivity initiatives which offset the estimated $7 per ton adverse impact of average inventory costs. These did not decline as quickly as purchase prices, resulting in operating margin compression compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Adjusted operating income of $8 per ferrous ton in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 excluded a $6 million adverse impact from reselling or modifying the terms, at significantly lower prices, of previously contracted bulk ferrous shipments for delivery in the quarter. Due to the sharp decline in selling prices that occurred during the quarter, the revised prices associated with these shipments were significantly lower than the prices in the original sales contracts entered into between August and October 2014.

Revenues: Revenues in the first quarter increased 2% from the prior year quarter due to higher car volumes which offset the adverse impact of lower commodity prices.

Margins: Operating margins of 2% were lower compared to the prior year first quarter, primarily due to an estimated adverse impact of $2 million from average inventory accounting and the sharp drop in commodity prices which further compressed operating margins. Cost reduction and productivity initiatives currently underway are expected to benefit operating performance in fiscal 2015, primarily in the second half.

Sales Volumes: Finished steel sales volumes of 127 thousand tons were in line with the prior year first quarter but lower sequentially due to a planned maintenance outage.

Pricing: Average net sales prices for finished steel products increased 4% from the prior year first quarter, reflecting higher demand for long products on the West Coast.

Margins: Operating income of $6 million increased substantially compared to the prior year first quarter, with the strong quarterly performance improvement resulting from higher selling prices, increased rolling mill utilization and contributions from productivity improvements.

Productivity Improvements

We achieved ahead of schedule our targeted $40 million in benefits under the cost reduction and productivity program announced in fiscal 2014, delivering $10 million in benefits during the first quarter of fiscal 2015, an increase of $6 million from the prior year first quarter. These benefits offset the impact of volatile market conditions during the first quarter and contributed to the positive operating income generated in each of our business segments.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, our Auto Parts Business launched cost reduction and productivity initiatives targeted to achieve annual savings of $7 million. Today, we are announcing an increase of our target to $14 million. The completion of these initiatives is expected to yield higher earnings and increased efficiencies by centralizing and streamlining field support activities, reducing organizational layers and achieving cost reductions. The initiatives announced today are expected to reduce annual SG&A costs by $7 million. We anticipate a workforce reduction of approximately 4% of Auto Parts headcount and a restructuring charge of $2 million. We expect to realize approximately 50% of the targeted annual benefits in fiscal 2015, primarily in the second half, with the full annual run rate expected to be reached in fiscal 2016.

Corporate Items

During fiscal 2015, the Company expects to invest approximately $40 million in capital expenditures and continue to return capital to shareholders through its quarterly dividend. Net debt of $326 million at the end of the first quarter was $32 million higher than at the end of the fourth quarter in fiscal 2014 due to increased net working capital which included the impact of the timing of shipments. (See Non-GAAP Financial Measures for reconciliation to U.S. GAAP.)

The Company anticipates a full year effective tax rate of 27%, subject to financial performance for the remainder of the year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules such as adjusted operating income, adjusted MRB operating income, adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to SSI and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to SSI. As required by SEC rules, the Company has provided reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures. Management believes that each of the foregoing adjusted non-GAAP financial measures provides a meaningful presentation of the Company's results from its core business operations excluding adjustments for restructuring and other exit-related costs that are not related to the Company's ongoing core business operations and improves the period-to-period comparability of the Company's results from its core business operations. In addition, to improve comparability of our operating performance between periods, these measures also exclude the impact on operating results in fiscal 2015 from the resale or modification of the terms during the first quarter of 2015 of certain previously contracted ferrous bulk shipments for delivery in the quarter. Due to the sharp decline in selling prices that occurred during the quarter, the revised prices associated with these shipments were significantly lower than the prices in the original sales contracts entered into between August and October 2014. Further, management believes that debt, net of cash is a useful measure for investors because, as cash and cash equivalents can be used, among other things, to repay indebtedness, netting this against total debt is a useful measure of our leverage. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.
