Adjusted EBITDA4 was $33.1 million for the second quarter of 2015 versus $70.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA4 was $94.6 million for the first six months of 2015 versus $113.7 million in the prior year period. Cash provided by operating activities was $85.9 million versus $229.1 million in the prior year period, which included $64.0 million in cash flows from discontinued operations.2 Cash available for distribution (CAD)5 of $52.3 million increased $12.2 million versus the prior year period due to lower cash interest paid ($11.7 million), lower cash tax payments ($10.1 million), decreased capital expenditures from continuing operations ($7.5 million) and decreased real estate development costs ($2.0 million), which were partially offset by lower Adjusted EBITDA4 ($19.1) million. Cash interest and taxes paid in the prior year period include payments related to the spun-off Performance Fibers business.

“In Southern Timber, higher volumes and prices compared with the prior year quarter reflected continued strong demand in our key market areas,” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “However, reductions in harvest volumes in the Pacific Northwest coupled with lower prices in the Pacific Northwest and New Zealand, primarily due to weaker demand from China, negatively impacted results in these segments. In Real Estate, sales of significantly fewer acres of non-strategic timberlands and the timing of closings led to lower results this quarter than in the prior year period.”

Southern Timber

Second quarter sales of $32.7 million increased $1.2 million versus the prior year period due to higher harvest volumes and improved pricing. Harvest volumes increased 13% to 1.3 million tons versus 1.1 million tons in the prior year period. Average sawtimber stumpage prices increased 4% to $27.33 per ton versus $26.16 per ton in the prior year period, while pulpwood stumpage prices increased 1% to $19.10 per ton versus $18.94 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in average sawtimber prices was driven by restricted supply as a result of wet weather, partially offset by increased harvest activity in lower-price sawtimber regions. The increase in average pulpwood prices was driven primarily by strong demand in the Company’s core pulpwood markets. Overall, weighted average stumpage prices (including hardwood) increased 2% to $21.03 per ton versus $20.71 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $11.8 million increased $2.9 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes ($1.9 million), higher pricing ($0.1 million), and higher non-timber income ($1.9 million), which were partially offset by higher depletion rates ($0.6 million) and higher costs ($0.5 million).

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $24.4 million was $4.8 million above the prior year period.

Year-to-date sales of $68.2 million increased $2.8 million versus the prior year period due to higher harvest volumes and improved pricing. Harvest volumes increased 10% to 2.7 million tons versus 2.4 million tons in the prior year period. Average sawtimber stumpage prices increased 6% to $28.13 per ton versus $26.63 per ton in the prior year period, while pulpwood stumpage prices increased 1% to $18.96 per ton versus $18.74 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in average sawtimber prices was driven by restricted supply as a result of wet weather, partially offset by increased harvest activity in lower-price sawtimber regions. The increase in average pulpwood prices was driven primarily by strong demand in the Company’s core pulpwood markets. Overall, weighted average stumpage prices (including hardwood) increased 3% to $21.37 per ton versus $20.71 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $24.2 million increased $4.8 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes ($3.2 million), higher pricing ($0.9 million), and higher non-timber income ($3.4 million), which were partially offset by higher depletion rates ($1.7 million) and costs ($1.0 million).

Year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA4 of $51.2 million was $9.1 million above the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

Second quarter sales of $17.1 million decreased $8.0 million versus the prior year period due to the planned reduction of harvest volumes and, to a lesser extent, lower sawtimber prices. Harvest volumes declined 44% to 0.25 million tons versus 0.45 million tons in the prior year period. Average delivered sawtimber prices decreased 9% to $76.80 per ton versus $84.46 per ton in the prior year period, while delivered pulpwood prices increased 17% to $43.37 per ton versus $37.10 per ton in the prior year period. Weaker demand from China contributed to sawtimber price declines in the region, while strong local demand for pulpwood proximate to our properties resulted in lower haul costs and higher net stumpage prices. Operating income of $1.7 million decreased $7.1 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes ($5.5 million) and lower prices ($2.0 million), which were partially offset by higher non-timber income ($0.5 million) primarily as a result of a strong cedar market.

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $4.6 million was $9.4 million below the prior year period.

Year-to-date sales of $36.3 million decreased $21.8 million versus the prior year period due to the planned reduction of harvest volumes and, to a lesser extent, lower sawtimber prices. Harvest volumes declined 42% to 0.58 million tons versus 1.0 million tons in the prior year period. Average delivered sawtimber prices decreased 11% to $73.98 per ton versus $83.05 per ton in the prior year period, while delivered pulpwood prices increased 15% to $43.29 per ton versus $37.55 per ton in the prior year period. Weaker demand from China resulted in a lower export mix of 22% versus 24% in the prior year period and contributed to sawtimber price declines in the region. Operating income of $4.3 million decreased $17.1 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes ($13.0 million), lower prices ($4.6 million) and higher costs ($0.4 million), which were partially offset by higher non-timber income ($1.0 million).

Year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA4 of $11.0 million was $21.9 million below the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

Second quarter sales of $39.2 million decreased $5.2 million versus the prior year period due to lower domestic and export product prices, which were partially offset by higher domestic pulpwood and export sawtimber volumes. Harvest volumes increased 11% to 0.58 million tons versus 0.52 million tons in the prior year period. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber declined 28% to $85.31 per ton versus $118.12 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber declined 21% to $66.96 per ton versus $84.64 per ton in the prior year period. The decline in export sawtimber prices was primarily due to weaker demand from China, while the decline in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven primarily by the fall in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$.74 per NZ$1.00 versus US$.86 per NZ$1.00). Operating loss of ($0.9) million versus operating income of $2.2 million in the prior year period was primarily due to the decrease in prices ($3.9 million) and foreign exchange losses ($2.0 million), which were partially offset by lower depletion rates ($1.7 million) and lower costs ($1.4 million).

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA4 of $6.2 million was $3.7 million below the prior year period.

Year-to-date sales of $80.4 million decreased $1.9 million versus the prior year period due to lower domestic and export product prices, which were partially offset by higher domestic pulpwood and export sawtimber volumes. Harvest volumes increased 14% to 1.1 million tons versus 1.0 million tons in the prior year period. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber declined 22% to $93.21 per ton versus $119.15 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber declined 17% to $68.76 per ton versus $82.53 per ton in the prior year period. The decline in export sawtimber prices was primarily due to weaker demand from China, while the decline in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven primarily by the fall in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$.75 per NZ$1.00 versus US$.84 per NZ$1.00). Operating income of $4.8 million was comparable to the prior year period, as the decrease in prices ($4.8 million) and foreign exchange losses ($2.0 million) were largely offset by lower depletion rates ($2.9 million) and costs ($2.2 million).

Year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA4 of $19.9 million was $1.0 million below the prior year period.

Real Estate

Second quarter sales of $6.9 million decreased $27.1 million versus the prior year period, and operating income of $1.4 million decreased $26.4 million versus the prior year period. Sales and operating income decreased in the second quarter due to lower volumes (2,337 acres sold versus 25,283 acres in the prior year period) partially offset by higher weighted average prices ($2,971 per acre versus $1,345 per acre in the prior year period).

Year-to-date sales of $30.7 million decreased $8.8 million versus the prior year period, and operating income of $14.0 million decreased $14.5 million versus the prior year period. Sales and operating income decreased due to lower volumes (9,734 acres sold versus 27,405 acres in the prior year period) partially offset by higher weighted average prices ($3,157 per acre versus $1,443 per acre in the prior year period).

Second quarter and year-to-date operating income also decreased as the prior year periods included $5.8 million in proceeds from a bankruptcy settlement with respect to a former land sale customer.

Improved Development second quarter and year-to-date sales of $0.8 million were comprised of 19 acres in the Belfast Commerce Centre near Savannah, Georgia for $42,281 per acre.

Unimproved Development second quarter sales of $0.8 million decreased $0.6 million versus the prior year period. The prior year period included a six-acre sale to the Florida Department of Transportation for $173,574 per acre. Year-to-date sales of $5.6 million increased $4.1 million versus the prior year period and included 217 acres in St. Johns County, Florida for $17,000 per acre, 76 acres in Bryan County, Georgia for $8,305 per acre and 20 acres in Baker County, Florida for $10,000 per acre.

Rural second quarter and year-to-date sales of $3.3 million and $10.1 million decreased $2.1 million and $0.4 million, respectively, versus the prior year periods due to a decrease in average prices. The prior year period included a 656-acre sale in Nassau County, Florida for $2,750 per acre and a higher proportion of sales in higher-price regions.

Non-strategic/Timberland second quarter and year-to-date sales of $2.0 million and $14.2 million decreased $25.2 million and $13.3 million, respectively, versus the prior year period. The prior year period included 19,556 acres of non-strategic timberlands in Gilchrist County, Florida at $1,125 per acre and 3,629 acres sold to the Alabama Department of Conservation for $1,435 per acre.

Second quarter and year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA4 of $3.6 million and $23.8 million were $32.9 million and $15.3 million, respectively, below the prior year period.

Trading

Second quarter sales of $19.8 million decreased $9.4 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes and prices primarily as a result of continued weak demand in China. Sales volumes decreased 1.3% to 234,000 tons versus 237,000 tons in the prior year period. Average prices decreased 29.4% to $84.16 per ton versus $119.28 per ton in the prior year period. Operating loss of $0.1 million was comparable to the prior year period.

Year-to-date sales of $40.5 million decreased $24.4 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes and prices as a result of unfavorable China market conditions. Sales volumes decreased 12.7% to 448,000 tons versus 513,000 tons in the prior year period. Average prices decreased 27.8% to $88.58 per ton versus $122.67 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income increased $0.7 million versus the prior year period, as the reductions in price and volume were more than offset by favorable costs and NZ$/US$ exchange gains ($1.3 million).

Other Items

Excluding $1.5 million and $1.6 million of costs related to the shareholder litigation1, second quarter and year-to-date corporate and other operating expenses of $5.8 million and $11.6 million decreased $4.2 million and $9.8 million, respectively, versus the prior year periods primarily due to lower selling, general and administrative expenses as a result of the spin-off of the Performance Fibers business.

Second quarter and year-to-date interest expense of $8.5 million and $17.0 million decreased $7.1 million and $9.3 million, respectively, versus the prior year periods primarily due to lower outstanding debt and $5.0 million of interest expense related to an early repayment of debt in the prior year periods.

Excluding $3.8 million of costs related to the spin-off in the prior year period, second quarter and year-to-date other non-operating expenses of $1.2 million and $2.7 million increased $0.6 million and $1.1 million, respectively, primarily due to unfavorable mark-to-market adjustments on New Zealand joint venture interest rate swaps.

The second quarter and year-to-date income tax benefit from continuing operations was $0.3 million and $0.7 million versus an income tax expense of $13.6 million and $5.9 million, respectively, in the prior year periods. The current quarter and year-to-date tax benefit is principally related to the New Zealand joint venture. The expense in the prior year periods was primarily related to the Performance Fibers business.

Share Repurchases

During the second quarter the Company repurchased approximately $10.7 million of common stock at an average price of $25.94 per share. As of June 30, 2015, the Company had 126.5 million shares of common stock outstanding and $89.3 million remaining in its current share repurchase authorization.

Outlook

“We remain on track to achieve our full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance,” stated Nunes. “In our Southern Timber segment, we anticipate continued strong pulpwood demand and prices in our key market areas. We continue to expect that the gradual improvement in U.S. housing demand will drive increases in Southern sawtimber prices over the long term; however, we expect limited upside to current prices through the remainder of 2015. In our Pacific Northwest and New Zealand segments, we anticipate near-term weakness in the China export market will weigh on prices but that export demand will gradually improve, although likely at a slower pace than we expected earlier in the year. In our Real Estate segment, we continue to see steady demand for rural properties and increasing interest in selected development properties as we execute on our strategy and develop catalysts for demand.”

“In addition, as announced separately today, we entered into a credit agreement with CoBank, ACB, as administrative agent, and a syndicate of Farm Credit institutions and other commercial banks to provide $550 million of new credit facilities, which we expect will lower our overall interest expense, improve the capital structure and cash flows of our New Zealand joint venture, and allow for continued disciplined capital allocation to improve our overall portfolio and contribute to stronger cash flows.”
