Plum Creek Reports Results for Second Quarter 2015

SEATTLE--()--Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. (NYSE:PCL) today announced second quarter earnings of $21 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, on revenues of $302 million. Earnings for the second quarter of 2014 were $55 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, on revenues of $356 million. Reported earnings in the second quarter of 2014 were higher due to the sale of over 49,000 acres of Wisconsin timberlands.

Earnings for the first six months of 2015 were $63 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, on revenues of $708 million. Earnings for the first six months of 2014 were $85 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, on revenues of $673 million.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure of operating performance, for the first six months of 2015 was $269 million, a $36 million increase from the $233 million for the same period of 2014. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and cash flow from operations is provided as an attachment to this release.

“Second quarter earnings were slightly better than we initially thought,” said Rick Holley, Plum Creek’s chief executive officer. “All of our business segments performed well in the second quarter with our Manufacturing and Real Estate segments reporting better results than we initially anticipated. Improving consumer confidence, employment, and residential construction activity are encouraging and leading indicators of future demand growth.”

Review of Second Quarter Operations

The Northern Resources segment reported operating income of $3 million during the second quarter, compared to the $5 million reported during the second quarter of 2014. Total harvest volumes were similar to the second quarter of 2014. Higher pulpwood volumes in the Northeast and Lake States offset lower sawlog harvest levels in the Northwest. Average sawlog prices declined $4 per ton, or about 5 percent, compared to the prior year as West Coast sawmills were well-supplied with logs and log export markets remained soft. In the Northeast, average pulpwood prices increased $6 per ton, or about 15 percent over the past year. Pulpwood demand in the Lake States and New England remained strong as pulp and paper companies struggled to build log inventories.

Operating income in the Southern Resources segment was $32 million, down slightly from the $33 million reported for the second quarter of 2014. Total harvest volumes and sawlog prices were largely unchanged from the prior year. Pulpwood prices increased $1 per ton, approximately 8 percent, compared to the second quarter of 2014. Pulpwood prices have trended higher over the past year on good demand from pulp, paper and packaging customers as well as the start-up of new pellet mills in the Gulf South region.

The Real Estate segment reported revenue of $25 million and operating income of $11 million in the second quarter of 2015. Second quarter 2014 revenue was $77 million and operating income was $45 million. The 2014 results included a $45 million sale in Wisconsin. During the quarter, the company sold a total of 8,005 acres of recreation lands for $2,255 per acre and 1,515 acres of small, non-strategic timberlands at an average price of $955 per acre. The company also sold 6,610 acres of conservation lands in the Northeast at an average price of $860 per acre.

The Manufacturing segment reported operating income of $14 million, compared to the $10 million of operating income reported for the second quarter of 2014. The 2015 results include a non-recurring benefit of approximately $3 million that was primarily related to lower workers’ compensation expenses. Results for the second quarter of 2014 included a $2 million adverse impact related to the June 2014 fire at the company’s MDF facility. Production and sales volumes for MDF and plywood increased over the prior year due to continued strength in the specialty panels markets. The strong results from the MDF and plywood businesses during the quarter offset the impact of lower lumber prices.

Operating income from the Energy and Natural Resources segment was $5 million, down $1 million from the second quarter of 2014. The decrease in earnings was primarily the result of lower coal and natural gas royalty income compared to the second quarter of 2014.

Share Repurchase

During the quarter the company repurchased approximately $31 million of common stock at an average price of $41.16 per share. As of June 30, 2015, the company had 174.9 million shares of common stock outstanding and $75 million remaining in its current share repurchase authorization.

Outlook

The company expects harvest volumes will be in the lower half of its 19 to 20 million ton target range for 2015. Harvest levels in the third quarter for the Northern Resources segment are expected to seasonally rebound to approximately one million tons. In the Southern Resources segment, harvest volumes are expected to be about 4 million tons with a pulpwood to sawtimber mix similar to the second quarter of 2015.

Real Estate sales are expected to be $125 to $135 million in the third quarter. The company expects Real Estate sales will approach $300 million for 2015. Land basis, as a percentage of real estate revenues, is expected to be 34 percent in the second half of the year.

During the third quarter of 2015, earnings for the Energy and Natural Resources segment should be similar to second quarter levels. Without the $3 million non-recurring benefit realized in the second quarter, the company expects the Manufacturing segment to report operating profit similar to the first-quarter results.

“Our business segments have performed much as we expected during the first two quarters of 2015, and we continue to expect some demand growth in the second half of the year,” continued Holley. “However, lower lumber prices and healthy log inventories at most mills limits the upside pricing opportunities in sawlogs that would lead us to the upper end of our earnings guidance range. We are narrowing our guidance range for the year accordingly, and now expect to report 2015 earnings between $1.05 and $1.20 per share. We expect to report third quarter earnings between $0.50 and $0.55 per share.

“At Plum Creek, we manage the company with the goal of maximizing the long-term value of our shareholders’ investment. Our recent share repurchase activity is just one example of our disciplined approach to capital allocation. We continue to evaluate all our capital allocation alternatives, and we will execute on those that provide the best benefit to our shareholders,” concluded Holley.

Segment Data - Adjusted EBITDA
Reconciliation of Operating Income and Net Cash
Provided by Operating Activities
(Unaudited)

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings from continuing operations, excluding Equity Earnings from the Timberland Venture, and before interest expense (including any gains or losses from extinguishment of debt), taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and basis in real estate sold. In addition to including Equity Earnings or Loss from Real Estate Development Ventures in Adjusted EBITDA, we also include, as an add back to Operating Income for the Other Segment, our proportional share of depreciation, depletion, amortization, and basis in real estate sold from this equity method investment. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components of our consolidated financial statements.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period, and each business segment’s contribution to that performance, by eliminating non-cash charges to earnings, which can vary significantly by business segment. These non-cash charges include timber depletion, depreciation of fixed assets and the basis in real estate sold. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental liquidity measure because we believe it is useful in measuring our ability to generate cash. In addition, we believe Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors, lenders and rating agencies to assess our financial performance.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and net cash from operating activities, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP performance and liquidity measures, is provided in the following schedules:
