Cash provided by operating activities was $33.9 million versus $31.0 million in the prior year period. Cash available for distribution (CAD)4 of $38.8 million increased $2.4 million versus the prior year period primarily due to higher Adjusted EBITDA4 ($1.5 million) and lower cash interest paid ($2.1 million), partially offset by higher cash taxes paid ($0.1 million) and higher capital expenditures ($1.1 million).

We are pleased with our start to 2017, as favorable New Zealand Timber and Pacific Northwest Timber results more than offset the impact of lower volume and prices in Southern Timber and fewer acres sold in our Real Estate segment (excluding Large Dispositions2),” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “Southern Timber volumes decreased 22% relative to an extraordinarily strong first quarter 2016, but were generally in line with our expectations relative to full-year 2017 guidance. Average stumpage prices in Southern Timber decreased 3% relative to the prior year quarter as mill outages and dry weather patterns contributed to softer market conditions. Pacific Northwest Timber volumes increased 21% and delivered sawtimber prices increased 10% relative to the prior year quarter, largely due to the impact of the portfolio repositioning transactions that we executed in the second quarter of 2016. Strong New Zealand Timber results were driven by a 15% increase in export prices, reflecting strong demand from China for Radiata pine logs, as well as an 18% increase in domestic sawtimber prices, reflecting improved local demand and favorable foreign exchange rates. Real Estate results, excluding the gain on the Large Disposition2, declined over the prior year quarter primarily due to lower volumes partially offset by higher average pricing due to mix, as the prior year quarter included a 5,200-acre sale of lower-value, non-strategic property.”

Southern Timber

First quarter sales of $32.7 million decreased $12.0 million, or 27%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes decreased 22% to 1.38 million tons versus 1.76 million tons in the prior year period. The decrease in harvest volumes is largely attributable to an extraordinarily strong first quarter last year in which stumpage customers harvested volume early in the year due to wet weather events; however, weaker demand due to mill outages also contributed to lower volumes. Average pine sawtimber stumpage prices decreased 2% to $26.42 per ton versus $26.90 per ton in the prior year period, while average pine pulpwood stumpage prices decreased 9% to $17.29 per ton versus $18.90 per ton in the prior year period. The modest decrease in average sawtimber prices was driven by oversupply in the Gulf states, which was largely offset by increased export volume and pricing in the coastal Atlantic region. The decrease in average pulpwood prices was driven primarily by increased supply across all regions due to dry weather conditions and reduced demand in certain regions due to mill outages. Overall, weighted-average stumpage prices (including hardwood) decreased 3% to $20.40 per ton versus $21.11 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $13.9 million decreased $1.9 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes ($4.4 million) and lower weighted-average stumpage prices ($1.0 million), which were partially offset by lower overhead and other costs ($1.4 million), higher non-timber income ($1.5 million) and lower depletion rates ($0.6 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $26.4 million was $6.0 million below the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

First quarter sales of $24.8 million increased $5.5 million, or 28%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes increased 21% to 399,000 tons versus 331,000 tons in the prior year period due to additional volume from our Menasha acquisition. Average delivered sawtimber prices increased 10% to $74.88 per ton versus $67.95 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered pulpwood prices decreased 14% to $38.71 per ton versus $44.84 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in average sawtimber prices was due to stronger export and domestic sawtimber markets as well as an increased mix of higher-value Douglas-fir. The decrease in average pulpwood prices was due to an increase in wood chip residuals from lumber mills, which in turn reduced the demand for pulpwood logs. Operating loss of $0.9 million versus operating income of $1.4 million in the prior year period was primarily due to higher depletion rates resulting from our Menasha acquisition ($4.6 million) and higher overhead and road maintenance costs ($0.5 million), which were partially offset by higher prices ($1.7 million), higher volumes ($0.8 million) and higher non-timber income ($0.3 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $9.3 million was $3.3 million above the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

First quarter sales of $40.7 million increased $4.7 million, or 13%, versus the prior year period (which included a land sale of $1.8 million). Harvest volumes increased 3% to 500,000 tons versus 485,000 tons in the prior year period. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber increased 15% to $108.73 per ton versus $94.34 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber increased 18% to $78.45 per ton versus $66.64 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in export sawtimber prices was primarily due to stronger demand from China. The increase in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven by strong demand for construction materials and the rise in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$0.71 per NZ$1.00 versus US$0.66 per NZ$1.00). Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, domestic sawtimber prices increased 9% from the prior year period. Operating income of $10.3 million increased $5.6 million versus the prior year period due to higher prices ($4.2 million), favorable foreign exchange impacts ($1.0 million), higher other income ($0.4 million), higher volumes ($0.2 million) and lower depletion rates ($0.1 million), which were partially offset by higher overhead costs ($0.3 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $15.7 million was $4.3 million above the prior year period.

Real Estate

First quarter sales of $54.3 million increased $40.9 million versus the prior year period, while operating income of $29.7 million increased $25.5 million versus the prior year period. The first quarter sales and operating income included $42.0 million and $28.2 million, respectively, from Large Dispositions.2 Excluding Large Dispositions2, pro forma sales4 of $12.3 million decreased $1.1 million versus the prior year period, while pro forma operating income4 of $1.5 million decreased $2.7 million versus the prior year period. Pro forma sales4 and pro forma operating income4 decreased in the first quarter due to fewer acres sold (6,207 acres sold versus 7,669 acres sold in the prior year period), partially offset by a 14% increase in weighted-average prices ($1,988 per acre versus $1,743 per acre in the prior year period).

Rural sales of $6.7 million were comprised of 2,284 acres at an average price of $2,950 per acre, including 1,844 acres in Texas for an average price of $2,967 per acre.

Non-strategic / Timberland sales of $5.6 million were comprised of 3,923 acres in Alabama at an average price of $1,427 per acre.

Large Dispostions2 of $42.0 million were comprised of the previously announced disposition of 24,954 acres in Alabama at an average price of $1,681 per acre.

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $8.6 million was $1.1 million below the prior year period.

Trading

First quarter sales of $34.0 million increased $12.6 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes and prices. Sales volumes increased 41% to 322,000 tons versus 228,000 tons in the prior year period due to increased volume from existing suppliers and stumpage blocks purchased from third-parties, coupled with improving export market demand. Average prices increased 12% to $105.43 per ton versus $94.09 per ton in the prior year period primarily due to stronger demand from China. Operating income of $1.1 million increased $0.7 million versus the prior year period.

Other Items

First quarter corporate and other operating expenses of $4.8 million increased $1.3 million versus the prior year period due to higher costs related to shareholder litigation1 ($0.3 million) and the prior year first quarter gain on foreign currency derivatives3 ($1.2 million), which were partially offset by lower selling, general and administrative expenses ($0.2 million) due to cost reduction initiatives and changes made to our pension plan in the fourth quarter of 2016.

First quarter interest expense of $8.4 million increased $1.3 million versus the prior year period due to higher outstanding debt, partially offset by lower average rates.

First quarter income tax expense of $6.3 million increased $7.1 million versus the prior year period. The income tax expense is principally related to the New Zealand JV.

Outlook

With our solid start to the year, we are on track to achieve our full-year Adjusted EBITDA4 guidance. In the U.S. South, we recently closed on previously-announced acquisitions totaling 95,100 acres in coastal Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. The acquisitions represent a meaningful upgrade of our portfolio, as they are comprised of well-stocked, highly productive properties located in some of the strongest markets in the U.S. South. We believe these acquisitions further position us to benefit from the ongoing U.S. housing recovery as well as the potential increase in U.S. lumber production that is expected to result from the recently announced duties on Canadian lumber imports. In the Pacific Northwest Timber segment, we expect a modest improvement in sawtimber prices as domestic mills increase production and as exporters compete for log supply in the region. In our New Zealand Timber segment, we expect strong performance driven by sustained levels of demand in both domestic and export markets. In our Real Estate segment, we continue to see solid demand for our Rural properties and remain optimistic about the long-term prospects for our Wildlight development project, which we expect will generate its first sales in 2017.”
