Company Release - 11/1/2018 4:45 PM ET

CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryerson Holding Corporation (NYSE: RYI), a leading value-added processor and distributor of industrial metals, today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Eddie Lehner, Ryerson's President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Ryerson had an excellent quarter, generating significant shareholder returns of over $2 per share and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO of $88.7 million. We are delighted to expand our product offerings to our customers through our acquisition of Central Steel & Wire Company. The addition of Central's complimentary product offering, especially their enhanced long & tubular products portfolio, coupled with our strength in stainless, aluminum, and carbon sheet and plate products, provides even greater selection and value to our customers. Since we closed the Central Steel & Wire Company acquisition on July 2nd, I commend and recognize the outstanding efforts of both our Ryerson and Central Steel & Wire team members in getting off to an exceptional start together.  We look forward to the realization of all we can accomplish as we offer great customer experiences across our intelligent and connected service center network. The Central Steel & Wire acquisition is another important step in our Company's strategic plan toward creating growing shareholder value.  Looking closely at the larger picture, Ryerson is making notable strides in building an organization focused on the customer experience that consistently outperforms the industry cycle." 

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenues were $1,250.0 million for the third quarter of 2018, up 44.6 percent compared to the third quarter of 2017 driven by higher volume of 20.8 percent and an increase in average selling price per ton of 19.8 percent. On a same-store basis, revenues grew by 24.0 percent as average selling prices increased 21.0 percent and tons sold increased by 2.5 percent. Compared to the second quarter of 2018, revenues increased 18.2 percent due to 14.5 percent higher volume and 3.2 percent higher average selling prices. On a same-store basis, revenues grew by 1.4 percent as average selling prices increased 4.3 percent, partially offset by a decline in tons sold of 2.8 percent driven by one fewer shipping day, normal third quarter seasonality, and storm impacts from tornado damage to long-time customers in the Midwestern U.S.

Gross margin of 16.7 percent for the third quarter of 2018 was 10 basis points lower than the year-ago period and fell by 80 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2018. Included in cost of materials sold was LIFO expense of $32.1 million and purchase accounting adjustments of $4.7 million for the third quarter of 2018, LIFO expense of $43.9 million for the second quarter of 2018, and LIFO income of $1.7 million for the year-ago period. Gross margin, excluding LIFO and purchase accounting adjustments was 19.6 percent for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 21.7 percent in the second quarter of 2018, and 16.6 percent in the third quarter of 2017. Compared to the second quarter of 2018, gross margin, excluding LIFO and purchase accounting adjustments was down 210 basis points due to the cost of materials increasing by more than average selling prices. A reconciliation of gross margin to gross margin, excluding LIFO and purchase accounting adjustments is included below in this news release.

Warehousing, delivery, selling, general, and administrative expense increased by $35.1 million, or 25.3 percent, for the third quarter of 2018. Ryerson demonstrated expense leverage on a same-store basis as warehousing, delivery, selling, general, and administrative expenses was 13.1 percent of sales in the third quarter of 2018, down from 14.1 percent in the third quarter of 2017 and flat with the second quarter of 2018. Erich Schnaufer, Ryerson's Chief Financial Officer, noted, "Ryerson maintained strong same-store expense metrics, capitalizing on the operating leverage in our business, as volumes increased through the first three quarters of 2018."

Net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation was $77.5 million, or $2.06 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018 compared to net income of $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter and $17.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2018. Net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation, excluding the gain on bargain purchase of $73.2 million from the acquisition of Central Steel & Wire Company and restructuring and other charges, was $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2018, or $0.17 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO, was $88.7 million in the third quarter of 2018 or $79.8 million on a same-store basis, more than double the $37.7 million of earnings in the year-ago period. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO and net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation is included below in this news release.

Revenues in the first nine months of 2018 were $3,248.4 million, an increase of 27.2 percent compared to the first nine months of 2017, as average selling prices increased 15.1 percent and tons shipped increased 10.5 percent. On a same-store basis, revenues were $3,070.2 million in the first nine months of 2018, with volumes up 4.4 percent and prices up 15.2 percent.

Net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation was $105.4 million, or $2.80 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2018 compared to $17.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the same period of 2017. Net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation, excluding the gain on bargain purchase, restructuring and other charges, and impairment charges on assets was $34.2 million for the year-to-date period of 2018, or $0.91 per diluted share compared to $17.2 million, or $0.46 per share in the year-ago period. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO increased almost 80 percent to $257.5 million in the first nine months of 2018 compared to $143.5 million in the first nine months of 2017. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO and net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation is included below in this news release.

Third Quarter 2018 Balance Sheet, Cash Flow, and Liquidity

Ryerson's third quarter inventory days of supply was 80 days, or 74 days on a same-store basis, compared to 74 days in the third quarter of 2017. Additionally, Ryerson maintained ample liquidity in the third quarter of 2018. As of September 30, 2018, borrowings were $589 million on our primary revolving credit facility with additional availability of $396 million. Including cash, marketable securities, and availability from foreign sources, Ryerson's total liquidity was $446 million as of September 30, 2018 compared to $414 million as of June 30, 2018.

Cash used in operating activities was $62.4 million for the first nine months of 2018, primarily due to higher valued inventory and receivables compared to year-end. In the first nine months of 2017, cash used in operating activities was $93.3 million.

Ryerson's strong income generation through the first nine months of 2018 has increased our equity to $102.1 million as of September 30, 2018 compared to an equity deficit of $7.4 million as of December 31, 2017.

Central Steel & Wire Company

In July 2018, Ryerson completed the acquisition of Central Steel & Wire Company. The addition of Central Steel & Wire Company has enhanced Ryerson's combined commercial, processing, and operational strengths to provide a greater breadth of products and services for our customers. Eddie Lehner noted, "In its first quarter as a part of Ryerson, Central's performance has exceeded our expectations with highly complementary product offerings that have contributed to strong customer retention. The acquisition increased our market share to approximately 5 percent from just over 4 percent, and enhanced our position in long products, which pairs well with our growth investments and strategic acquisitions in long product value-added processing equipment."

Ryerson is implementing post-close optimization actions to generate expense leverage and free cash flow from the acquisition of Central Steel & Wire Company, while focused foremost on customer relationships. In the third quarter of 2018, Ryerson realized expense savings of approximately $10 million on an annualized basis through operating expense reductions and improved working capital management to increase free cash flows by approximately $20 million, while noting the excellent work done retaining Central Steel & Wire Company's valued customer base. Further, Ryerson continues to evaluate its assets in the Midwest region, and expects to receive approximately $10.5 million in aggregate proceeds from the sale of two facilities whose operations are being consolidated into existing Ryerson locations.

Overall, Central Steel & Wire Company generated Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO of $8.9 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the $12.3 million earned in the first six months of 2018 prior to the acquisition by Ryerson. The long-term, mid-cycle, objective is for Central Steel & Wire brand to generate $600 million in revenue and $50 million in Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO for Ryerson Holding Corporation on an annual basis following our post-closing optimization work.   

Fourth Quarter 2018 Commentary

Ryerson management anticipates continued good demand conditions in the U.S. for the fourth quarter of 2018, as economic indicators on balance remain favorable in the manufacturing economy. The U.S. industrial production index, as measured by the Federal Reserve, has remained elevated through September registering year-over-year monthly growth of 5.1 percent, the highest growth attained since December 2010. Overall, Ryerson expects tons shipped in the fourth quarter of 2018 to decline less than the 7 percent average decline from the third quarter to the fourth quarter experienced during the past 5 years, as measured by the MSCI.

Certain statements made in this press release and other written or oral statements made by or on behalf of the Company constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including statements regarding our future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates, objectives or projections relating to the future. Such statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "objectives," "goals," "believes," "expects," "may," "estimates," "will," "should," "plans," or "anticipates" or the negative thereof or other variations thereon or comparable terminology, or by discussions of strategy. The Company cautions that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and may involve significant risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may vary materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors.

Note:

EBITDA represents net income before interest and other expense on debt, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA gives further effect to, among other things, impairment charges on assets, reorganization expenses, gain on bargain purchase, and foreign currency transaction gains and losses. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, provides useful information to investors regarding our operational performance because they enhance an investor's overall understanding of our core financial performance and provide a basis of comparison of results between current, past and future periods. We also disclose the metric Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, to provide a means of comparison amongst our competitors who may not use the same basis of accounting for inventories. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, are three of the primary metrics management uses for planning and forecasting in future periods, including trending and analyzing the core operating performance of our business without the effect of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, expenses, revenues, and gains (losses) that are unrelated to the day to day performance of our business. We also establish compensation programs for our executive management and regional employees that are based upon the achievement of pre-established EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, targets. We also use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, to benchmark our operating performance to that of our competitors. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net do not represent, and should not be used as a substitute for, net income or cash flows from operations as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and neither EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, is necessarily an indication of whether cash flow will be sufficient to fund our cash requirements. This release also presents gross margin, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, which is calculated as gross profit plus LIFO expense (or minus LIFO income), net, divided by net sales, and gross margin, excluding LIFO expense (income), net and purchase accounting adjustments, which is calculated as gross profit plus LIFO expense (or minus LIFO income) and purchase accounting adjustments divided by net sales. We have excluded LIFO expense (income), net and purchase accounting adjustments from gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales metrics in order to provide a means of comparison amongst our competitors who may not use the same basis of accounting for inventories as we do as well as remove the effect of non-cash purchase accounting adjustments. Our definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, gross margin, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, gross margin excluding LIFO expense (income), net and purchase accounting adjustments, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, as a percentage of sales, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), net, and purchase accounting adjustments as a percentage of sales may differ from that of other companies.
