Koppers Holdings Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results
Q2 2016 EPS of $0.57 vs. Prior Year of $0.44; Adjusted(1) EPS of $0.93 Compares Favorably to Prior Year of $0.68; Company Increases 2016 Adjusted EPS Guidance Range to $1.90 to $2.20

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/04/16 --

Koppers Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KOP), an integrated global provider of treated wood products, wood treatment chemicals and carbon compounds, today reported net income attributable to Koppers for the second quarter of $12.1 million, or $0.57 per diluted share compared to net income of $9.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share (EPS) were $19.4 million and $0.93 per share for the second quarter of 2016 compared to adjusted net income of $14.0 million and $0.68 per share in the prior year quarter.

Adjustments to pre-tax income for the second quarter of 2016 totaled $8.0 million and consisted primarily of restructuring expenses. For the prior year quarter, adjustments to pre-tax income amounted to $5.4 million and were mainly due to restructuring expenses related to a wood treating plant closure.

Consolidated sales were $385.1 million for the second quarter of 2016 and decreased by 10.8 percent, or $46.5 million, from sales of $431.6 million in the prior year quarter. The sales decline was primarily related to the Carbon Materials and Chemicals (CMC) business, due to lower sales volumes for carbon pitch, carbon black feedstock and naphthalene, combined with lower sales prices for carbon pitch and naphthalene. The sales volume decrease is driven by the continuing reduction of aluminum manufacturing capacity in the U.S. and the closure of the company's coal tar distillation facility in China.

The Performance Chemicals (PC) business reported strong operating profitability as favorable trends in the repair and remodeling markets and existing home sales, and shifts toward higher wood preservative retention levels have resulted in higher demand for its residential preservatives. The results for the Railroad and Utility Products and Services (RUPS) business showed slightly lower year-over-year revenues but improved profitability due to a favorable sales mix of higher margin products and services including increased crosstie treatment and bridge services. CMC operating profitability, on an adjusted basis, reported a meaningful increase compared to the prior year quarter, demonstrating the benefit of restructuring cost savings and lower average raw material costs, partially offset by decreased volumes and lower selling prices of certain products.

Commenting on the quarter, Leroy Ball, president and CEO of Koppers, said, "I am very pleased with our second quarter operating performance. The PC business continues to exceed my expectations due to several market factors that have continued to trend in a positive direction. I am also encouraged by the solid results posted by our RUPS business in a challenging environment, but expect some softening in that segment in the second half of this year as the railroad industry continues to look for opportunities to cut expenditures to combat lower volumes. Also notable is CMC, which continues to make progress on many restructuring initiatives which helped it to post better adjusted results despite a 29 percent drop in sales and crude oil prices that averaged more than 20 percent below the prior year's quarter."

Summary of Second-Quarter Financial Performance:

  • Sales for PC of $108.4 million increased by $6.1 million, or 6.0 percent, compared to sales of $102.3 million in the prior year quarter. The sales increase was due to higher domestic sales volumes primarily related to favorable trends in the U.S. for repair and remodeling markets and existing home sales, and greater demand for treated wood with higher preservative retention levels. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 23.2 percent for the second quarter was substantially higher than 20.1 percent in the prior year quarter, due mainly to higher sales volumes that led to greater absorption of fixed costs and lower average raw material costs.
  • Sales for RUPS of $164.4 million decreased by $6.5 million, or 3.8 percent, compared to sales of $170.9 million in the prior year quarter. The sales decline was due primarily to lower volumes and pricing of treated crossties sold into the commercial market as a flattening in demand for crossties in the Class I market has created greater competition for non-Class I business. In addition, hardwood pricing has begun to soften, which has contributed to lower pricing. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the second quarter was 13.7 percent compared with 12.9 percent in the prior year period, reflecting a net improvement to profitability due to a favorable sales mix more heavily weighted toward treatment services.
  • Sales for CMC totaling $112.3 million decreased by 29.1 percent, or $46.1 million, compared to sales of $158.4 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was due to lower sales volumes for carbon pitch, carbon black feedstock and naphthalene, combined with lower sales prices for carbon pitch and naphthalene, which have been affected by lower oil prices, and partially offset by increased sales volumes of phthalic anhydride. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the second quarter was 4.6 percent, an improvement from 2.7 percent in the prior year quarter, indicating the positive effect of restructuring cost savings and lower average raw material costs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $52.6 million compared with $46.0 million in the prior year quarter, due mainly to higher profitability from the PC business, although all three segments contributed to the year-over-year improvement.
  • Items excluded from adjusted EBITDA consisted of $5.5 million of pre-tax charges, while adjusted net income and adjusted EPS for the quarter excluded $8.0 million of pre-tax charges, both of which related primarily to restructuring expenses. Adjusted EBITDA margin represents adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of GAAP sales.

2016 Outlook

The company is reducing its 2016 sales outlook to approximately $1.4 billion, due to lower expected sales volumes in its CMC segment. However, the company is increasing its guidance for adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $162 to $172 million, compared with a prior forecast of $160 to $168 million. Accordingly, adjusted EPS guidance is being increased and is now projected to be between $1.90 and $2.20, compared with the previous range of $1.85 to $2.10. The stronger results from Performance Chemicals are expected to continue and should more than offset the potential softening in treated crosstie volumes. In addition, this forecast has been revised to reflect an underlying assumption that crude oil prices will average approximately $40 per barrel.

Furthermore, the company is increasing its estimate for 2016 capital expenditures to be $42 to $47 million, in order to accelerate the construction of a new naphthalene unit at its Stickney, Illinois, facility. The company expects to complete the new naphthalene unit by year-end 2017.

Regarding debt reduction, the company maintains its targeted range of $85 to $110 million debt repayment in 2016, which is consistent with its goal of paying down debt by $200 to $225 million over the 2015-2016 period.

For the company's 2016 guidance, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS excludes restructuring, impairment, non-cash LIFO charges, and non-cash mark-to-market commodity hedging. The forecasted amounts for these items are not determinable, but may be significant. For that reason, the company is unable to provide GAAP earnings estimates at this time; however, definitions and reconciliations for historical non-GAAP measures presented herein are provided per footnote 1 below.
