Year-to-date cash provided by operating activities was $128.3 million versus $77.0 million in the prior year period. Year-to-date cash available for distribution (CAD)3 of $97.0 million increased $39.8 million versus the prior year period primarily due to higher Adjusted EBITDA3 ($43.1 million) and lower cash interest paid ($0.4 million), partially offset by higher capital expenditures ($3.6 million) and higher cash taxes paid ($0.1 million).

“We are pleased to report solid results for the second quarter, reflective of the quality and diversity of our timberland and real estate portfolio,” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “Southern Timber results were relatively flat to the prior year quarter based on 15% higher harvest volumes offset by a 6% decrease in average stumpage prices and costs of $1.1 million related to the West Mims fire in Georgia and Florida. Pacific Northwest Timber results improved modestly based on 3% higher harvest volumes and a 10% increase in delivered sawtimber prices relative to the prior year quarter, largely due to strengthening domestic and export markets. New Zealand Timber results improved significantly versus the prior year quarter, driven by increases in export and domestic sawtimber prices of 16% and 11%, respectively, as well as non-strategic timberland sales of $24.3 million comprised of 9,646 productive acres. These timberland sales contributed net income attributable to Rayonier of $8.2 million, operating income of $14.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA3 of $23.8 million to the second quarter results. Real Estate results (excluding Large Dispositions2) also improved significantly over the prior year quarter due to higher volumes and higher average pricing.”

Southern Timber

Second quarter sales of $30.8 million increased $1.2 million, or 4%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes increased 15% to 1.36 million tons versus 1.18 million tons in the prior year period, primarily due to our recent acquisitions in Georgia and South Carolina. Average pine sawtimber stumpage prices decreased 5% to $25.66 per ton versus $27.00 per ton in the prior year period, while average pine pulpwood stumpage prices decreased 15% to $15.62 per ton versus $18.31 per ton in the prior year period. The decrease in average sawtimber and pulpwood prices was due to a combination of factors including salvage timber sales from the West Mims fire, lower demand for higher-value plylogs and overall price decreases from additional supply resulting from extended drought conditions. Overall, weighted-average stumpage prices (including hardwood) decreased 6% to $19.25 per ton versus $20.42 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $9.7 million decreased $1.4 million versus the prior year period due to lower weighted-average stumpage prices ($1.6 million), costs related to the West Mims fire ($1.1 million), higher franchise taxes ($0.3 million) and lower non-timber income ($0.9 million), which were partially offset by higher volumes ($2.1 million), lower depreciation ($0.1 million) and lower overhead and pension expense ($0.3 million).

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $21.6 million was $0.1 million below the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

Second quarter sales of $19.4 million increased $2.5 million, or 15%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes increased 3% to 275,000 tons versus 267,000 tons in the prior year period. Average delivered sawtimber prices increased 10% to $81.93 per ton versus $74.54 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered pulpwood prices decreased 8% to $39.38 per ton versus $42.97 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 a favorable species mix driven by our Menasha acquisition. The decrease in average pulpwood prices was due to an increase in volume from a lower-priced region. Operating loss of $1.5 million versus operating income of $1.1 million in the prior year period was primarily due to higher depletion rates resulting from our Menasha acquisition ($3.3 million), which were partially offset by higher prices ($0.3 million), higher volumes ($0.1 million), higher non-timber income ($0.2 million) and lower overhead and pension expense ($0.1 million).

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $5.5 million was $0.7 million above the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

Second quarter sales of $77.2 million (which included timberland sales of $24.3 million) increased $29.5 million, or 62%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes decreased 1% to 616,000 tons versus 621,000 tons in the prior year period. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber increased 16% to $111.05 per ton versus $96.11 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber increased 11% to $79.04 per ton versus $71.37 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in export sawtimber prices was primarily due to stronger demand from China. The increase in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven by strong demand for construction materials and a modest rise in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$0.70 per NZ$1.00 versus US$0.69 per NZ$1.00). Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, domestic sawtimber prices increased 9% from the prior year period. Operating income of $26.8 million increased $16.8 million versus the prior year period due to higher prices ($4.0 million), favorable foreign exchange impacts ($0.6 million) and higher income from timberland sales ($14.8 million), which were partially offset by volume/mix changes ($1.2 million), lower carbon sales ($0.7 million), higher depreciation ($0.1 million) and higher forest management and overhead costs ($0.6 million).

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $41.9 million was $25.5 million above the prior year period.

Real Estate

Second quarter sales of $25.6 million decreased $111.7 million versus the prior year period, while operating income of $16.1 million decreased $89.6 million versus the prior year period. The prior year second quarter sales and operating income included $129.5 million and $101.3 million, respectively, from Large Dispositions.2 Excluding Large Dispositions,2 pro forma sales3 of $25.6 million increased $17.8 million versus the prior year period, while pro forma operating income3 of $16.1 million increased $11.7 million versus the prior year period. Pro forma sales3 and pro forma operating income3 increased in the second quarter due to a higher number of acres sold (7,592 acres sold versus 2,918 acres sold in the prior year period) and a 28% increase in weighted-average prices ($3,411 per acre versus $2,664 per acre in the prior year period). The increase in pro forma operating income3 was partially offset by the prior year period receipt of a $4.0 million deferred payment with respect to a prior land sale.

Improved Development closings of $0.4 million in the second quarter consisted of our first sale in the Wildlight development, a 1.3-acre commercial site for approximately $324,000 per acre. Based on ongoing site development obligations, $0.1 million was recognized as revenue in the second quarter.

Unimproved Development sales of $2.5 million consisted of a 130-acre tract in St. John’s County, Florida for $19,195 per acre.

Rural sales of $5.5 million were comprised of 1,728 acres at an average price of $3,178 per acre. This compares to the prior year quarter of 2,666 acres at an average price of $2,711 per acre.

Non-strategic / Timberland sales of $17.5 million were comprised of 5,733 acres at an average price of $3,050 per acre, including a conservation sale of 1,994 acres in St. John’s County, Florida for $3,200 per acre as well as a timberland sale of 1,327 acres in Nassau County, Florida for $4,000 per acre. This compares to the prior year quarter of 252 acres at an average price of $2,161 per acre.

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $21.5 million was $13.8 million above the prior year period.

Trading

Second quarter sales of $41.7 million increased $11.6 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes and prices. Sales volumes increased 21% to 386,000 tons versus 320,000 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 15% to $108.06 per ton versus $93.69 per ton in the prior year period primarily due to stronger demand from China. Operating income of $1.1 million increased $0.5 million versus the prior year period.

Other Items

Second quarter corporate and other operating expenses of $5.3 million decreased $1.6 million versus the prior year period due to lower costs related to shareholder litigation1 ($0.6 million) and the prior year period transaction costs related to the Menasha acquisition ($1.2 million), which were partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses ($0.2 million) due to increased benefit expenses.

Second quarter interest expense of $8.6 million increased $0.6 million versus the prior year period due to higher outstanding debt.

Second quarter income tax expense of $7.5 million increased $5.2 million versus the prior year period due to improved results from the New Zealand JV, which is the primary driver of income tax expense.

Outlook

“Based on our solid first half results, the timberland sale contribution from the New Zealand Timber segment, and our expectations for the balance of the year, we now anticipate full-year net income attributable to Rayonier of $79 to $83 million, pro forma net income $50 to $55 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $255 to $270 million,” added Nunes. “In our Southern Timber segment, we expect harvest levels to be at the higher end of prior guidance based on our recent acquisitions, while near-term product pricing will continue to be impacted by additional fire salvage volume and changes in regional mix as our summer harvest shifts more heavily to the Gulf States region. In our Pacific Northwest Timber segment, we expect continued strength in sawtimber prices as export and domestic markets continue to improve. In our New Zealand Timber segment, we expect continued strong performance driven by sustained levels of demand in both domestic and export markets. In our Real Estate segment, following a strong second quarter, we expect relatively light closings in the third quarter followed by a strong fourth quarter. We are pleased to have completed our first closing in the Wildlight development and are encouraged by the growing interest in this project.”

(a)   Capital expenditures exclude timberland acquisitions of $237.2 million and $276.6 million and spending on the Rayonier office building of $5.6 million and $1.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016, respectively.
(b) Cash Available for Distribution (CAD) is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to measure cash generated during a period that is available for dividend distribution, repurchase of the Company’s common shares, debt reduction and strategic acquisitions. CAD is defined as cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital spending (excluding timberland acquisitions and spending on the Rayonier office building) and working capital and other balance sheet changes. CAD is not necessarily indicative of the CAD that may be generated in future periods.
(c) “Costs related to shareholder litigation” include expenses incurred as a result of the securities litigation and the shareholder derivative demands. See Note 10—Contingencies of Item 8 — Financial Statements and Supplementary Data in the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. In addition, these costs include the costs associated with the Company’s response to a subpoena it received from the SEC in November 2014. In July 2016, the Division of Enforcement of the SEC notified the Company that it had concluded its investigation into the Company.
(d) The Company used foreign exchange derivatives to mitigate the risk of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates while awaiting the capital contribution to the New Zealand JV.
(e) “Large Dispositions” are defined as transactions involving the sale of timberland that exceed $20 million in size and do not have a demonstrable premium relative to timberland value. In January 2017, the Company completed a disposition of approximately 25,000 acres of timberland located in Alabama for a sales price and gain of approximately $42.0 million and $28.2 million, respectively. In April 2016, the Company completed a disposition of approximately 55,000 acres of timberland located in Washington for a sales price and gain of approximately $129.5 million and $101.3 million, respectively.
(f) Cash interest paid is presented net of patronage refunds received of $3.0 million and $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016, respectively.
(g) Pro forma revenues (sales) is defined as revenues (sales) adjusted for Large Dispositions. Rayonier believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with useful information to evaluate our core business operations because it excludes specific items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
(h) Pro forma net income is defined as net income attributable to Rayonier Inc. adjusted for costs related to shareholder litigation, the gain on foreign currency derivatives and Large Dispositions. Rayonier believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with useful information to evaluate our core business operations because it excludes specific items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
(i)

Pro forma operating income (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) adjusted for costs related to shareholder litigation, the gain on foreign currency derivatives and Large Dispositions. Rayonier believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with useful information to evaluate our core business operations because it excludes specific items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results.

(j) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, the non-cash cost of land and improved development, costs related to shareholder litigation, the gain on foreign currency derivatives and Large Dispositions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to make strategic decisions about the business and that investors can use to evaluate the operational performance of the assets under management. It removes the impact of specific items that management believes do not directly reflect the core business operations on an ongoing basis.
