JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--()--Rayonier Inc. (NYSE:RYN) today reported first quarter net income attributable to Rayonier of $14.5 million, or $0.12 per share, on revenues of $134.8 million. This compares to net income attributable to Rayonier of $17.7 million, or $0.14 per share, on revenues of $140.3 million in the prior year quarter. The first quarter results include $0.4 million of costs related to shareholder litigation1 and $1.2 million of gain on foreign currency derivatives.2 The prior year first quarter results included $0.1 million of costs related to shareholder litigation.1 Excluding these items, pro forma net income3 was $13.7 million, or $0.11 per share, versus $17.8 million, or $0.14 per share, in the prior year period.

The following table summarizes the current quarter and comparable prior year period results on a pro forma basis:

(millions of dollars) 2016 2015
Southern Timber $32.4 $26.7
Pacific Northwest Timber 6.0 6.4
New Zealand Timber 11.4 13.7
Real Estate 9.7 20.1
Trading 0.4 0.3
Corporate and other (4.3 ) (5.7 )
Adjusted EBITDA3 $55.6   $61.5  

Cash provided by operating activities was $31.0 million versus $53.4 million in the prior year period. Cash available for distribution (CAD)3 of $36.4 million decreased $6.8 million versus the prior year period primarily due to lower Adjusted EBITDA3 ($5.9 million) and higher cash interest paid ($0.8 million).

“We are pleased with our start to 2016,” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “Southern Timber volumes were well above the prior year period, as wet weather conditions led to accelerated removals by stumpage customers. New Zealand log prices strengthened relative to the second half of 2015 due to solid domestic markets and improved demand in China for Radiata pine logs. Log prices in the Pacific Northwest continued to be impacted by reduced local sawmill capacity and relatively weak demand from China, although we saw modest strengthening in export prices compared to the second half of 2015. In Real Estate, lower results this quarter compared with the prior year quarter primarily reflected lower average pricing due to mix, as the quarter included a 5,200-acre sale of lower-value, non-strategic property.”

Southern Timber

First quarter sales of $44.7 million increased $9.2 million, or 26%, versus the prior year period due to higher harvest volumes, partially offset by a decrease in average sawtimber prices. Harvest volumes increased 28% to 1.8 million tons versus 1.4 million tons in the prior year period. This significant increase in harvest volumes was driven by the acceleration of stumpage sale activity due to extreme wet weather conditions in certain markets. Average sawtimber stumpage prices decreased 7% to $26.90 per ton versus $28.84 per ton in the prior year period, while average pulpwood stumpage prices were roughly flat at $18.90 per ton versus $18.83 per ton in the prior year period. The decrease in average sawtimber prices was driven by mix, specifically a significant reduction in volume from one of the Company’s higher-priced sawtimber regions. Average pulpwood prices continued to be well above south-wide benchmarks due to strong pricing in our core markets, particularly along the east coast. Overall, weighted average stumpage prices (including hardwood) decreased 3% to $21.11 per ton versus $21.69 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $15.8 million increased $3.4 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes ($4.4 million) and lower depletion rates ($1.7 million), which were partially offset by higher leased land reforestation expenses ($1.6 million) and lower pricing ($1.1 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $32.4 million was $5.7 million above the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

First quarter sales of $19.3 million increased $0.1 million, or 1%, versus the prior year period due to an increased proportion of delivered sales (87% versus 79% in the prior year period) and higher pulpwood prices, partially offset by lower sawtimber prices. Harvest volumes increased 2% to 331,000 tons versus 325,000 tons in the prior year period. Average delivered sawtimber prices decreased 6% to $67.95 per ton versus $72.03 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered pulpwood prices increased 4% to $44.84 per ton versus $43.19 per ton in the prior year period. The decrease in average sawtimber prices was driven by continued weak demand in export markets and reduced local sawmill capacity, while the increase in average pulpwood prices was driven by strong local demand for pulpwood logs. Operating income of $1.4 million decreased $1.2 million versus the prior year period due to lower prices ($0.8 million), higher depletion rates ($0.8 million) and lower non-timber income ($0.1 million), which were partially offset by lower road maintenance costs ($0.3 million) and higher volumes ($0.2 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $6.0 million was $0.4 million below the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

First quarter sales of $36.0 million decreased $5.2 million, or 13%, versus the prior year period due to lower domestic and export product prices and lower volumes. Harvest volumes declined 10% to 485,000 tons versus 538,000 tons in the prior year period. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber declined 8% to $94.34 per ton versus $102.60 per ton in the prior year period, and average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber declined 6% to $66.64 per ton versus $70.77 per ton in the prior year period. The decline in export sawtimber prices was primarily due to weaker demand from China, while the decline in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven primarily by the fall in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$0.66 per NZ$1.00 versus US$0.76 per NZ$1.00). Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, domestic sawtimber prices increased 8% from the prior year period. Operating income of $4.7 million decreased $1.0 million versus the prior year period due to lower land sales ($1.4 million), lower volumes ($0.3 million) and lower prices ($0.1 million), which were partially offset by changes in foreign exchange impacts ($0.8 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $11.4 million was $2.3 million below the prior year period.

Real Estate

First quarter sales of $13.4 million decreased $10.4 million versus the prior year period, while operating income of $4.2 million decreased $8.4 million versus the prior year period. Sales and operating income decreased in the first quarter due to lower weighted average prices ($1,743 per acre versus $3,216 per acre in the prior year period), partially offset by higher volumes (7,669 acres sold versus 7,397 acres sold in the prior year period).

Improved Development first quarter sales of $1.7 million were comprised of a 47-acre sale at Belfast Commerce Park near Savannah, Georgia for approximately $37,400 per acre.

Unimproved Development first quarter sales of $0.9 million were comprised of a 48-acre sale in St. John’s County, Florida for approximately $18,000 per acre.

Rural first quarter sales of $3.7 million were comprised of 1,444 acres at an average price of $2,548 per acre.

Non-strategic/Timberland first quarter sales of $7.1 million were comprised of 6,130 acres at an average price of $1,155 per acre, including a 5,200-acre sale of scattered, non-strategic properties with relatively low productivity (only 39% plantable).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $9.7 million was $10.4 million below the prior year period.

Trading

First quarter sales of $21.4 million increased $0.8 million versus the prior year period due to higher volumes. Sales volumes increased 7% to 228,000 tons versus 214,000 tons in the prior year period. Average prices increased 1% to $94.09 per ton versus $93.42 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $0.4 million was comparable to the prior year period.

Other Items

Excluding $0.4 million of costs related to shareholder litigation1 and $1.2 million of gain on foreign currency derivatives,2 first quarter corporate and other operating expenses of $4.3 million decreased $1.5 million versus the prior year period, primarily due to lower selling, general and administrative expenses.

First quarter interest expense of $7.1 million decreased $1.4 million versus the prior year period, primarily due to lower rates on the term credit agreement entered into in the third quarter of 2015.

First quarter other non-operating expenses of $1.6 million were comprised of unfavorable mark-to-market adjustments on the New Zealand JV interest rate swaps, which were settled in March in connection with the recapitalization of the New Zealand JV.

First quarter income tax benefit of $0.8 million was principally related to the New Zealand JV.

Share Repurchases

During the first quarter, the Company repurchased $0.7 million of common stock at an average price of $19.59 per share. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had 122.7 million shares of common stock outstanding and $99.3 million remaining on its current share repurchase authorization.

Outlook

“Earlier this week we announced a concurrent acquisition of 61,000 acres and a strategic disposition of 55,000 acres, which together upgraded the overall quality of our Pacific Northwest timberland portfolio and greatly accelerated the accomplishment of our objective to provide a more balanced age-class and harvest profile in that region. We are excited about this repositioning of our Pacific Northwest timberland portfolio and the increased and more consistent cash flow we expect it to deliver. Also, on March 3, 2016, we completed the previously-announced recapitalization of our New Zealand joint venture, thereby reducing consolidated interest expense by approximately $5 million while increasing our ownership interest from 65% to 77%,” added Nunes.

“Based on our strong start to the year and the incremental contribution we anticipate from our Pacific Northwest portfolio repositioning, we are raising our full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance to $195 to $215 million. In our Southern Timber segment, despite higher-than-anticipated Q1 volumes due to accelerated removals by stumpage customers, we still expect full-year harvest volumes to be in line with our prior guidance of 5.8 to 6.0 million tons. We anticipate continued strong pulpwood demand and prices in our key market areas, and while we do not anticipate any significant price improvement in sawtimber prices this year, we still expect that the ongoing recovery in U.S. housing demand will drive price increases longer term. In our Pacific Northwest segment, we expect full-year harvest volumes will increase modestly to roughly 1.3 million tons as we ramp up production on our newly-acquired Menasha properties. Based on lower inventory levels in China relative to last year, we also anticipate some modest price improvement in the Pacific Northwest over the course of the year. We expect our New Zealand Timber segment will continue to benefit from stronger relative demand in China for its Radiata pine logs, stable domestic demand and favorable shipping costs due to low oil prices and ample shipping capacity. In our Real Estate segment, we are pleased with our progress in establishing growth catalysts for key development projects and the level of customer interest we are seeing for those properties. While demand for Rural properties remains solid, meeting our full-year Real Estate segment guidance continues to depend upon the timing of closing larger transactions in our sales pipeline.”
