LSB Industries, Inc. Reports Operating Results for the 2021 Third Quarter

Achieves Record Third Quarter Adjusted EBITDA

Positioned for Profitable Growth After Transformative Exchange Transaction and Debt Refinancing

OKLAHOMA CITY--()--LSB Industries, Inc. (NYSE: LXU) (“LSB” or the “Company”) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales of $127.2 million compared to $74.0 million in the third quarter of 2020
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1)of $37.7 million compared to $10.2 million in the third quarter of 2020
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) margin of 29.6% compared to 13.8% in the third quarter of 2020
  • Total liquidity of approximately $81.1 million as of September 30, 2021
  • Completed exchange transaction converting outstanding preferred stock into shares of common stock, leading to credit rating upgrade and debt refinancing and significant reduction in cost of capital

“I am very pleased to report that over the past two months, we completed a series of steps that have transformed the financial foundation of our Company and positioned LSB to enter a new phase of growth and value creation,” stated Mark Behrman, LSB Industries’ President and CEO. “In late September, we closed on our transaction with Eldridge Industries to exchange Eldridge’s $310 million of LSB preferred stock for shares of our common stock. With this liability removed from our balance sheet, we received credit rating upgrades from the major rating agencies and proceeded in refinancing our debt through an offering of new senior notes. Both transactions have helped us significantly reduce our cost of capital and bolster our liquidity. We now have the flexibility to pursue earnings and cash flow growth opportunities through both organic initiatives and accretive acquisitions.”

Mr. Behrman continued, “Turning to our third quarter 2021 results, we delivered significant year-over-year growth in both our top and bottom line, despite an extensive turnaround at our Cherokee facility. Net sales increased 72% while adjusted EBITDA was up almost 270% versus the same period last year and reached an all-time third quarter record level for our chemical operations. These outstanding results reflect continued robust demand and pricing trends for both our agricultural and industrial products coupled with consistent operating performance by our facilities and the operating leverage inherent in our business model.”

Comparison of 2021 to 2020 quarterly periods:

  • Net sales of our agricultural products increased during the quarter relative to the prior year period driven by stronger pricing for UAN, HDAN and ammonia. Partially offsetting the benefit of stronger pricing was an extended turnaround at the Cherokee facility and the resultant lost production and sales volume.
  • Net sales of our industrial and mining products increased as a result of higher pricing related to a rise in the Tampa ammonia benchmark price, to which many of our industrial contracts are tied. Also benefitting industrial sales was the continued ramp up of a new nitric acid offtake agreement along with general strength in the U.S. economy, including the key automotive, home building and power generation end-use markets for our products.
  • The year-over-year improvement in operating income and adjusted EBITDA was primarily the result of the higher selling prices along with stronger Industrial volumes partially offset by the lost fixed cost absorption resulting from the aforementioned Turnaround at the Cherokee facility and higher natural gas feedstock prices.

Financial Position and Capital Expenditures

As of September 30, 2021, our total cash position was $32.9 million. Additionally, LSB had approximately $48.2 million of borrowing availability under its Working Capital Revolver resulting in total liquidity of approximately $81 million. Total long-term debt, including the current portion, was $469.9 million on September 30, 2021 compared to $484.2 million on December 31, 2020. On September 27, 2021, the Company closed on a transaction to exchange approximately $310 million of the Series E Redeemable Preferred stock held by Eldridge Industries for shares of LSB common stock. The Company’s new common share count following the completion of the transaction is approximately 88.8 million shares.

Interest expense for the third quarter of 2021 was $13.0 million compared to $12.6 million for the same period in 2020.

Cheryl Maguire, LSB’s Chief Financial Officer, stated, “On October 14, 2021 we closed on an offering of $500 million of senior secured notes due 2028, bearing an interest rate of 6.250%, which we used to redeem our $435 million of 9.625% senior notes that were due to mature in 2023, with the balance being used to enhance the liquidity of our balance sheet and for general corporate purposes. By reducing the interest rate on our notes by nearly 340 basis points we expect to recognize an annual cash interest expense savings of approximately $11 million, enhancing our cash flow and positioning us to more aggressively pursue our growth strategies despite increasing our overall debt.”

Capital expenditures were approximately $26.1 million for the first nine months of 2021. For the full year, total capital expenditures related to capital work to be performed in 2021 are expected to be approximately $35 - $40 million, inclusive of investments for margin enhancement purposes.

Outlook

The environment for U.S. agricultural markets remains very favorable as a result of a combination of stronger farm incomes in 2020, increased demand for corn from China and other countries, and dry conditions in South America and the Western U.S. which have collectively constricted global corn supplies and pushed corn prices to levels well above the average of the past seven years, despite a recent pullback from peak levels. This translates into strong demand and a significant increase in pricing for fertilizers.

Our industrial business also continues to benefit from solid demand from key end markets including homebuilding and power generation. While auto sales have backed off after rebounding from early 2020 pandemic lows and reaching peak levels in April of 2021 due to a shortage of microprocessors, we have yet to see any reduction in demand for our nitric acid, due in part to a large, multi-year contract we commenced in the first quarter of this year. Economic forecasts point to continued expansion, including those from The International Monetary Fund, that predicts 6% year-over-year GDP growth for the U.S. in 2021, the largest percentage increase since 1984, and a solid 5% for 2022. The strength in the Tampa ammonia price also has positive implications for our industrial business as many industrial chemical contracts are indexed to the Tampa ammonia price.

As it relates to the surge in natural gas prices that began in the first quarter of this year, many of our industrial contracts are cost-plus, enabling us to pass along the cost of gas to our customers. On the agricultural side of our business, natural gas price inflation has thus far been significantly outpaced by the increase in selling prices for ammonia, UAN and HDAN and also caused ammonia producers in certain regions, particularly Europe where gas costs now exceed $20/MMBtu, to take production offline, constraining global ammonia supply and causing further increase in ammonia selling prices.

Collectively, these factors make us very optimistic for continued strong sales and adjusted EBITDA levels for the balance of 2021 and well into 2022, which combined with our lower cost capital structure should enable us to generate consistent positive free cash flow that we plan to invest in bottom line growth initiatives.

LSB Industries, Inc.
Non-GAAP Reconciliations

This news release includes certain “non-GAAP financial measures” under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Regulation G. These non-GAAP measures are calculated using GAAP amounts in our consolidated financial statements.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus interest expense, less gain on extinguishment of debt, plus depreciation and amortization (D&A) (which includes D&A of property, plant and equipment and amortization of intangible and other assets), plus provision for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA is reported to show the impact of one time/non-cash or non-operating items-such as, loss (gain) on sale of a business and other property and equipment, one-time income or fees, certain fair market value (FMV) adjustments, non-cash stock-based compensation, and consulting costs associated with reliability and purchasing initiatives (Initiatives). We historically have performed turnaround activities on an annual basis; however, we have moved towards extending Turnarounds to a two or three-year cycle. Rather than being capitalized and amortized over the period of benefit, our accounting policy is to recognize the costs as incurred. Given these Turnarounds are essentially investments that provide benefits over multiple years, they are not reflective of our operating performance in a given year.

We believe that certain investors consider EBITDA a useful means of measuring our ability to meet our debt service obligations and evaluating our financial performance. In addition, we believe that certain investors consider adjusted EBITDA as more meaningful to further assess our performance. We believe that the inclusion of supplementary adjustments to EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about certain items.

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA have limitations and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flow from operations or other consolidated income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, this presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure of other companies. The following table provides a reconciliation of net income (loss) to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the periods indicated.
