NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) (NYSE: LPX) today reported its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, financial results and announced a strategic update and capital allocation plan.

  • Fourth quarter LP® SmartSide® Strand revenue increased 11 percent; Full year SmartSide® Strand revenue increased 10 percent
  • Fourth quarter net loss attributed to LP was $(51) million ($(0.44) per diluted share); Full year net loss attributed to LP was $(5) million ($(0.04) per diluted share). The fourth quarter and full year results include $86 million and $92 million, respectively, of long-lived asset impairments
  • Fourth quarter Adjusted Diluted EPS(1) was $0.05; Full year Adjusted Diluted EPS(1) was $0.37
  • Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $49 million; Full year Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $209 million

  • Returned $703 million of capital to shareholders in 2019 through share repurchases (25 million shares for $638 million) and quarterly cash dividends ($65 million)

(1) This is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Use of Non-GAAP Information” and “Reconciliation of Net Income to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted Income” below.

Strategic Update and Execution of Capital Allocation Plan

  • LP re-affirms SmartSide® Strand revenue growth of 10 - 12 percent for 2020
  • LP re-affirms its commitment to return over time to shareholders at least 50 percent of cash flow from operations in excess of capital expenditures required to sustain its core business and grow Siding and OSB Structural Solutions, and announces authorization of a new $200 million share repurchase program
  • In addition to growth in Siding and OSB Structural Solutions, LP continues to see opportunities for improving Adjusted EBITDA through controllable operating levers and generated operational improvements and supply chain benefits of $40 million in 2019 towards its 2021 target of $75 million
  • LP declared a seven percent increase in quarterly cash dividends to $0.145 per share

“Our sales and operations teams finished 2019 with strong execution,” said LP Chief Executive Officer Brad Southern. “Siding built on Q3 with a record fourth quarter of SmartSide® Strand sales and safe operations. OSB continued its outstanding cost control, ending the quarter and the year with positive EBITDA at the bottom of the OSB price cycle. We generated $100 million in net cash from operations and $0.05 in adjusted earnings per share in Q4. We finished the year strong and remain ahead of pace to achieve our 2021 targets.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Highlights

Net sales decreased $52 million (or nine percent) to $537 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 from $589 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily due to $38 million of reduced OSB prices and a 29 percent reduction in commodity OSB shipments across all North America segments. These OSB pricing and shipment declines were partially offset by SmartSide® Strand revenue growth of 11 percent.

Net income attributed to LP decreased $68 million to a net loss attributed to LP of $(51) million, or $(0.44) per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2019 from net income of $17 million, or $0.12 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily due to $86 million of non-cash impairments, before income taxes. Included within these non-cash impairments are $47 million related to non-operating assets located at Val-d’Or and St Michel, Quebec; Cook, Minnesota; and Silsbee, Texas, and $39 million related to a facility producing LSL and OSB within EWP. These non-cash impairments reflect changes to anticipated usage of these facilities driven by market changes and improved operating efficiencies across our remaining facilities.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $16 million (or 25 percent) to $49 million for the fourth quarter of 2019 from $65 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily due to the OSB pricing and shipment declines, partially offset by the SmartSide® Strand revenue growth and operating efficiencies.

Full Year 2019 Highlights

Net sales decreased $518 million (or 18 percent) to $2.3 billion for 2019 from $2.8 billion in 2018, primarily due to $416 million of reduced OSB prices and a 17 percent reduction in commodity OSB shipments across all North America segments. The OSB pricing and shipment declines were partially offset by SmartSide® Strand revenue growth of 10 percent.

Net income attributed to LP decreased $400 million to a net loss of $(5) million, or $(0.04) per diluted share in 2019 from net income of $395 million, or $2.73 per diluted share in 2018. In addition to the OSB pricing and shipment declines, net income attributed to LP decreased due to non-cash impairments of $92 million, before income taxes, including $86 million of non-cash impairments recognized in the fourth quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased $451 million to $209 million in 2019 from $660 million in 2018, primarily due to the OSB pricing and shipment declines offset by the SmartSide® Strand revenue growth and operating efficiencies.

For the fourth quarter, Siding net sales increased $17 million (or eight percent) and Adjusted EBITDA increased $8 million (or 24 percent). The increases are primarily related to SmartSide® Strand revenue growth of 11 percent.

For the full year, Siding net sales increased $21 million (or two percent), reflecting SmartSide® Strand revenue growth of 10 percent, partially offset by lower sales of OSB produced in Siding mills. Siding Adjusted EBITDA decreased $25 million (or 12 percent), primarily due to $18 million of costs to convert Dawson Creek to produce siding and the reduction of OSB produced in this segment.

Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

The OSB segment manufactures and distributes OSB structural panel products including LP OSB, LP TechShield® radiant barrier, LP WeatherLogic® weather-resistant sheathing, LP TopNotch® sub-flooring, LP Legacy® sub-flooring, and LP FlameBlock® fire-rated sheathing.

For the fourth quarter, EWP net sales increased $13 million (or 16 percent) primarily due to the 2018 temporary shutdown of our North Carolina facility due to hurricane damage. Adjusted EBITDA increased $3 million primarily due to an increase in joint venture earnings and operational efficiency improvements.

For the full year, EWP net sales decreased $13 million (or three percent) primarily due to lower OSB production at EWP mills. Adjusted EBITDA remained flat due to an increase in joint venture earnings and operational efficiency improvements offset by lower sales of OSB produced at EWP mills.

South America

For the fourth quarter, South America net sales decreased $1 million due to pricing pressure from increased competition in export markets in South America and Asia offset by increases in Chilean shipments. Adjusted EBITDA was flat to the prior year.

For the full year, South America net sales decreased $2 million (or one percent) and Adjusted EBITDA decreased $6 million (or 15 percent). The decreases are primarily due to pricing pressure from increased competition in export markets in South America and Asia and unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations, partially offset by increases in local and export shipments.

2020 Outlook

Our guidance is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, including those set forth below under “Forward-Looking Statements.”

  • Given our current outlook, we expect capital expenditures for 2020 to be in the range of $130 million to $140 million.
  • We expect our SmartSide® Strand sales growth to be approximately 10-12 percent for 2020.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements concerning Louisiana-Pacific Corporation's (LP) future results and performance that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: changes in governmental fiscal and monetary policies, including tariffs, and levels of employment; changes in general economic conditions; changes in the cost and availability of capital; changes in the level of home construction and repair activity; changes in competitive conditions and prices for our products; changes in the relationship between supply of and demand for building products; changes in the financial or business condition of third-party wholesale distributors and dealers; changes in the relationship between supply of and demand for raw materials, including wood fiber and resins, used in manufacturing our products; changes in the cost of and availability of energy, primarily natural gas, electricity and diesel fuel; changes in the cost of and availability of transportation; difficulties in the launch or production ramp-up of newly introduced products; unplanned interruptions to our manufacturing operations, such as explosions, fires, inclement weather, natural disasters, accidents, equipment failures, labor disruptions, and supply interruptions; changes in other significant operating expenses; changes in currency values and exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and other currencies, particularly the Canadian dollar, Brazilian real and Chilean peso; changes in general and industry-specific environmental laws and regulations; changes in tax laws, and interpretations thereof; changes in circumstances giving rise to environmental liabilities or expenditures; warranty costs exceeding our warranty reserves; challenge or exploitation of our intellectual property or other proprietary information by others in the industry; changes in the funding requirements of our defined benefit pension plans; the resolution of existing and future product-related litigation and other legal proceedings; the amount and timing of any repurchases of our common stock and the payment of dividends on our common stock, which will depend on market and business conditions and other considerations; the costs, and acts of public authorities, war, civil unrest, natural disasters, fire, floods, earthquakes, inclement weather and other matters beyond our control. Investors are cautioned that many of the assumptions upon which LP's forward-looking statements are based are likely to change after the forward-looking statements are made, including for example commodity prices, which LP cannot control, and production volumes and costs, some aspects of which LP may not be able to control. For additional information about factors that could cause actual results, events, and circumstances to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, please refer to LP’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required by law, LP undertakes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements to reflect new information, subsequent events or circumstances.

Use of Non-GAAP information

In this press release, we disclose non-GAAP financial measures that fall within the meaning of SEC Regulation G and Regulation S-K Item 10(e), which we believe provide users of the financial information with additional meaningful comparison to prior reported results. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized definitions and are not defined by U.S. GAAP. We disclose earnings from continuing operations before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization and exclude stock-based compensation expense, impairment of long-lived assets, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income and other non-operating items as Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We have included Adjusted EBITDA in this news release because we view it as an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe that it is frequently used by interested persons in the evaluation of companies in our industry. We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our performance as compared to other companies in our industry that have different financing and capital structures and/or tax rates. We also disclose Adjusted income from continuing operations attributed to LP, which excludes impairment of long-lived assets, interest outside of normal operations, other operating credits and charges, net, early debt extinguishment, other non-operating items, and adjusts for a normalized tax rate (Adjusted Income). We believe that Adjusted Income is a useful measure for evaluating our ability to generate earnings and that providing this measure will allow interested persons to more readily compare the earnings for past and future periods.

Neither Adjusted EBITDA nor Adjusted Income are substitutes for the U.S. GAAP measure of net income or for any other U.S. GAAP measures of operating performance. It should be noted that other companies may present similarly-titled measures differently and, therefore, as presented by us may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Income have material limitations as performance measures because they exclude items that are actually incurred or experienced in connection with the operations of our business.
