Rayonier Advanced Materials Reports Second Quarter 2019 Results

  • Improved High Purity Cellulose sequential results as higher wood costs and operating issues were mitigated
  • Go-to-Market strategy implementation yielding positive initial customer outcomes
  • Sale of Matane high-yield manufacturing facility for $175 million; anticipated to close in fourth quarter
  • Improved cash flows driven by aggressive management of working capital
  • Sales prices for commodity products remain under pressure from global trade uncertainties

 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--()--Rayonier Advanced Materials Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:RYAM) today reported second quarter 2019 net loss of $15 million, or $(0.37) per diluted common share, compared to net income of $54 million, or $0.83 per diluted common share for the same prior year quarter ended 2018. The decrease in net income is due primarily to lower commodity sales prices, higher wood costs, and the residual impact of first quarter operational issues in High Purity Cellulose.

Year-to-date net loss was $37 million or $(0.89) per diluted common share compared to net income of $78 million or $1.22 per diluted common share for the first half of 2018. The prior year-to-date net income included a $15 million, or $0.23 per diluted common share, gain on bargain purchase associated with the acquisition of Tembec Inc.

“Though the second quarter was an improvement in the sequential operating results of the Company, we continue to be impacted by collapsing commodity demand and prices. Year-to-date these lower prices have resulted in an $85 million decline in operating income over the prior year,” said Paul Boynton, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a result, we are implementing more significant measures to lower costs, reduce capital expenditures, generate cash and improve our balance sheet position to navigate these challenging markets.”

High Purity Cellulose

Operating income for the three and six months ended June 29, 2019 decreased $21 million and $45 million, respectively, when compared to the same prior year periods. The decreases were driven by a 1 percent and 4 percent decline in cellulose specialties sales prices in the three and six month periods, respectively, as a result of duties on products sold into China and the timing of 2017 priced sales, as previously reported, in the six month period. Both periods benefited from higher commodity sales volumes due to improved production. Costs for both periods were higher as wood and maintenance costs were only partially offset by lower chemical prices, primarily caustic, and reduced labor costs.

The three month and six month periods ended June 29, 2019 were also negatively impacted by a $1 million and $3 million loss, respectively, associated with the Company’s LignoTech Florida joint venture that began operations in the second half of 2018. Additionally, the 2018 three and six month periods includes operating income of $2 million and $3 million from the resins business, which was sold in September of 2018.

Compared to the first quarter of 2019, operating income increased $10 million. The increase was driven by higher cellulose specialties sales prices, lower wood costs and improved operations, offset by lower commodity sales prices and volumes and lower cellulose specialties sale volumes.

Forest Products

Operating income decreased $33 million and $49 million for the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, respectively, when compared to the same prior year periods. The decreases were driven by lower lumber sales prices and higher costs primarily driven by the write-down of inventories to net realizable value.

Compared to the first quarter of 2019, the operating loss increased $11 million to $16 million. The increased loss was driven by lower lumber sales prices and higher costs primarily driven by the write-down of inventories to net realizable value.

Pulp

Operating income decreased $16 million and $28 million during the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, respectively, when compared to the same prior year periods. The decreases were driven by lower high-yield pulp sales prices due to weaker export markets and higher transportation costs. The six month period was impacted by lower production volumes due to market-related downtime and reliability issues at the Temiscaming plant in the first quarter, as previously reported.

Compared to the first quarter of 2019, operating income was flat as lower high-yield pulp prices were offset by higher sales volumes.

Paper

Operating income decreased $4 million and $9 million during the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, respectively, when compared to the same prior year periods. The decreases were primarily driven by lower paperboard sales prices as a result of increased competition in paperboard and lower newsprint sales prices. Additionally, newsprint sales volumes were impacted as a result of production reliability issues and downtime due to provincial energy curtailments. The higher costs associated with the production issues was offset by the receipt of an electrical credit associated with provincial energy curtailment.

Compared to the first quarter of 2019, operating income increased $4 million to $3 million. The increase was driven by higher newsprint sales volumes and lower costs as a result of the electrical credit received offset by the lower newsprint sales prices and higher costs as a result of lower production.

Corporate

The operating loss remained flat for the three months ended June 29, 2019 when compared to the same prior year period as lower incentive compensation expense was offset by foreign exchange rate losses during the period. The operating loss increased $8 million during the six months ended June 29, 2019 when compared to the prior period. The increase loss was primarily driven by foreign exchange rate changes during the periods.

Compared to the first quarter of 2019, the operating loss decreased $7 million. The favorable change was driven by lower incentive compensation expense, partially offset by higher disposed operations costs and expenses associated with the sale of the Matane plant.

Non-Operating Expenses

Interest expense increased slightly to $16 million and $30 million for the second quarter and year to date ended June 29, 2019 as slightly lower debt levels during the three and six months ended June 29, 2019, were partially offset by higher interest rates on variable debt.

Income Tax (Expense) Benefit

The year-to-date 2019 effective tax rate was a benefit of 32 percent compared to an expense of 27 percent for the same period in 2018. The 2019 effective tax rate benefit differs from the federal statutory rate of 21 percent primarily due to tax credits, excess tax deductions on vested stock compensation, and state taxes, partially offset by different statutory tax rates of foreign operations and nondeductible executive compensation.

Cash Flows and Liquidity

In the six months ended June 29, 2019, the Company’s operations provided cash flows of $18 million with $45 million generated in the second quarter alone. Year-to-date working capital used $2 million, an improvement of $35 million compared to the first quarter of 2019 driven by efforts to reduce inventory levels. In addition to lower inventories, lower accounts receivable were offset by lower accounts payable and accrued liabilities from the timing of payments.

For the first six months of 2019, the Company invested $60 million in capital expenditures, which included approximately $9 million of strategic capital. Additionally, the Company incurred net borrowings of $44 million to fund its operations and ended the quarter with adjusted net debt of $1,151 million which includes $90 million of cash.

Cash flows from operations, primarily driven by operating results, have historically been the Company’s primary source of liquidity and capital resources. While the Company is in compliance with all debt covenants as of June 29, 2019, the significant decrease in the market prices for commodity-orientated products, primarily viscose, fluff, high-yield pulp, lumber, paperboard and newsprint, have caused the financial results of the Company to decline significantly over the last six months. As a result, the Company will not meet its 3 times first lien secured net leverage test as currently required under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities (the “Credit Facilities”) at the end of the third quarter. The Company is in active discussions with its lenders to amend the loans and expects to reach agreement in the third quarter of 2019. However, because the discussions with lenders have not been finalized and their decision is outside of the Company’s control, the outcome cannot be considered probable and no assurances can be given regarding the likelihood, certainty or timing of consummating such an amendment. If an amendment is not consummated, the lenders by contract, if they so choose, may request the immediate repayment of the loans thereunder following the filing of the Company’s third quarter report on Form 10-Q. Consequently, the Company is required to disclose that its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on its ability to obtain an amendment or refinance the Credit Facilities.

Outlook

High Purity Cellulose

For full year 2019, the Company continues to expect stable cellulose specialties prices to be lower by approximately 1 to 2 percent, as previously guided, excluding the impact of any Chinese duties on sales price which the Company continues to incur. Cellulose specialties volumes are expected to be down 4 to 5 percent due to weakness in the acetate and automotive markets. Commodity product sales prices are expected to be significantly lower in the second half of the year due to continued weakness in the broad paper pulp markets which is impacting both fluff and viscose prices. Wood costs declined in the second quarter from their first quarter peaks and are expected to further decline through the remainder of the year. For the full year, the Company anticipates High Purity Cellulose EBITDA of $150 to $160 million.

Forest Products

U.S. housing starts and remodeling activity are the key drivers for lumber demand. Though U.S. housing starts have remained relatively flat, they were negatively impacted by the poor weather in the first half of 2019. Coupled with an abundance of supply, lumber sales prices have declined further from the first quarter. Announced curtailments should contract market supply once inventories have been reduced and positively impact future pricing. Duties on lumber sales from Canada into the U.S. will continue to impact financial results. To date, the Company has paid approximately $48 million of lumber duties.

Pulp

High-yield pulp prices continued to weaken in the second quarter primarily due to lower demand for paper pulp products as a result of the weakening Chinese economy, due to the extended trade issues between China and the U.S. This weak demand and high inventories have pressured global pulp prices. However, they are expected to bottom in the third quarter as sales prices approach the cash costs of the highest cost producers, resulting in market downtime or closures. In addition, the timing of the closing of the sale of the Matane plant could materially impact the segments operating results.

Paper

North American paperboard prices will remain under pressure primarily due to U.S. capacity expansion and increased market supply from European and Asian imports as these producers redirect sales from their usual markets, due to weak demand and poor economic conditions. In newsprint, demand continues to decline as industry production capacity remains stable, resulting in continued pricing pressure.

Capital Allocation and Investment

Due to market conditions and increased leverage, the Company is in the process of evaluating its capital spending across all segments. The Company currently expects capital spending to be $120 million for the full year 2019, down $10 million from its original $130 million estimate, and continues to evaluate further actions.

Additionally, the Company announced on August 1 that it reached an agreement to sell its Matane plant for $175 million less certain fees and expenses. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019. Proceeds from the sale will be used for general corporate purposes, including the reduction of debt.

The Company will be reviewing its common stock dividend payment policy, which historically has been $0.07 per share per quarter, with its Board of Directors.

Conclusion

“Global economic conditions driven by the U.S.-Chinese trade dispute have accelerated the decline in prices, cash flows and the profitability of our commodity businesses. We are taking necessary steps to improve our financial performance and liquidity in the face of these challenges. Immediate cost and capital reduction actions are being implemented, while we continue to improve reliability of our operations,” added Boynton. “ As we previously announced, we are actively reviewing our portfolio of commodity assets, which we now expect to conclude by the end of the third quarter. The sale of our Matane facility marks a significant step in this process. These actions, together with the strength of our core High Purity Cellulose business, will allow us to better manage current macroeconomic headwinds and emerge a stronger, more resilient company.”
