Commercial Metals Company Reports Fourth Quarter Results And Full Year Earnings Per Share Of $1.20, Or $141.6 Million

IRVING, Texas, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Commercial Metals Company (NYSE: CMC) today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended August 31, 2015. For the year ended August 31, 2015, net earnings attributable to CMC were $141.6 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, on net sales of $6.0 billion. This compares to net earnings attributable to CMC of $115.6 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, on net sales of $6.8 billion for the year ended August 31, 2014. Net loss attributable to CMC for the three months ended August 31, 2015 was $5.8 million, or $0.05 per share, on net sales of $1.4 billion. This compares to net earnings attributable to CMC of $34.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.8 billion for the three months ended August 31, 2014.

Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 included after-tax LIFO expense from continuing operations of $23.7 million ($0.20 per share), compared to after-tax LIFO income from continuing operations of $1.0 million ($0.01 per diluted share) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Additionally, our results from continuing operations for the fiscal fourth quarter included after-tax charges related to goodwill impairment for our Americas Recycling segment of $4.7 million ($0.04 per share), costs associated with exiting our distribution operation in Cardiff, Wales, UK of $2.9 million ($0.03 per share), and other charges including inventory write-downs, severance cost and long-lived asset impairments totaling $4.0 million ($0.03 per share). The sum of these items negatively impacted our earnings from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of our fiscal year by a total of $0.30 per share. Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations was $12.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to adjusted operating profit from continuing operations of $68.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $54.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $104.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

Joe Alvarado, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, commented, "For our fiscal year ended August 31, 2015, we achieved adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $464.6 million, our best since fiscal 2008. In August, construction spending continued to rise for the eighth consecutive month, led by an increase in non-residential construction spending year over year. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we completed the sale of a majority of our Australian distribution business. Six of the locations were sold, three were shut down, while one remains held for sale. For fiscal 2015, net cash flows from operating activities were $313.5 million."

On October 28, 2015, the board of directors of CMC declared a quarterly dividend of $0.12 per share of CMC common stock for stockholders of record on November 11, 2015.  The dividend will be paid on November 25, 2015.

Business Segments - Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2015 Review

Our Americas Recycling segment recorded an adjusted operating loss of $15.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to an adjusted operating loss of $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, ferrous and nonferrous shipments decreased 22% and 14%, respectively, while the average ferrous metal margin was flat, and the average nonferrous metal margin contracted 20%, compared to the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year. Furthermore, this segment recorded goodwill impairment charges of $7.3 million as a result of the Company's annual goodwill impairment analysis in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Additionally, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, this segment recorded pre-tax LIFO expense of $1.5 million, compared to pre-tax LIFO income of $0.3 million for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Our Americas Mills segment recorded an adjusted operating profit of $46.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to an adjusted operating profit of $63.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The decrease in adjusted operating profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was due to a 6% decrease in total shipments, which outpaced a 2% increase in average metal margin compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The decrease in total shipments was driven by a 38 thousand short ton decrease in billet shipments and a nine thousand short ton decrease in shipments of our higher margin finished products, including reinforcement bar ("rebar") and merchants, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Additionally, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, this segment recorded pre-tax LIFO expense of $13.9 million, compared to pre-tax LIFO expense of $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Our Americas Fabrication segment recorded an adjusted operating profit of $7.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to an adjusted operating profit of $8.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, total shipments increased 1%, and the average composite metal margin expanded 23%, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Offsetting these improvements, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, this segment recorded pre-tax LIFO expense of $11.0 million, compared to pre-tax LIFO income of $3.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

Our International Mill segment recorded an adjusted operating profit of $6.4 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to an adjusted operating profit of $5.0 million in the prior year's fourth quarter. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, the average selling price decreased $137 per short ton, while the average cost of ferrous scrap consumed decreased $85 per short ton, resulting in a 21% squeeze in average metal margin, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. Additionally, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, total shipments decreased 1% compared to the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year. However, the decreases in average metal margin and total shipments were more than offset by an $8.3 million decline in utilities and repairs and maintenance expenses partially due to efficiencies gained from the commissioning of a new, state-of-the-art electric arc furnace in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, adjusted operating profit reflected an unfavorable foreign currency impact of approximately $2.2 million.

Our International Marketing and Distribution segment recorded an adjusted operating loss of $13.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to an adjusted operating profit of $15.5 million in the prior year's fourth quarter. The $29.2 million decline in adjusted operating profit in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 was the result of an 18% decrease in volumes coupled with a 31% decrease in average margin, compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. This segment's results continued to be pressured by the strong U.S. dollar, global steel overcapacity and weak oil and gas tubular demand. In addition, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, we made the decision for an orderly exit of our steel distribution operation in Cardiff, Wales, UK, and this segment recorded an expense of approximately $4.5 million associated with this action. Furthermore, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, this segment recorded pre-tax LIFO expense of $10.1 million, compared to pre-tax LIFO income of $3.5 million for the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Fiscal 2015 Full Year Review

Earnings from continuing operations for fiscal 2015 were $161.3 million, or $1.37 per diluted share. For the year ended August 31, 2015, net cash flow from operating activities was $313.5 million, and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $464.6 million.  On a continuing operations basis, for fiscal 2015, we recorded after-tax LIFO income of $51.5 million ($0.44 per diluted share), compared to after-tax LIFO expense of $8.8 million ($0.07 per diluted share) in fiscal 2014. As of August 31, 2015, cash and short-term investments totaled $485.3 million, an increase of 12% from the end of our 2014 fiscal year.

Pursuant to our share repurchase program that was approved in October 2014, during fiscal 2015, we purchased approximately 2.9 million shares of our common stock for $41.8 million.

Loss from discontinued operations for fiscal year 2015 was $19.7 million, which primarily consisted of operating losses related to our Australian steel distribution business.                                      

Outlook

Mr. Alvarado concluded, "Non-residential construction spending, which is our primary end use market in the U.S., was up 24% year over year in August. However, we believe our operations will continue to face pressure from historically high steel import activity into the U.S. and Poland, a strong U.S. dollar and continued weakness in the scrap markets. We believe the increased import activity is a result of unfair trading practices by certain foreign producers. While recent legislation passed by the U.S. government has improved the trading landscape, further legislation is necessary to bring global steel trading to a more level playing field. Additionally, we believe that China's inability to consume all of their production will continue to cause a negative effect around the world. In light of these market difficulties, we remain committed to managing the items within our control, namely reducing selling, general and administrative expenses, improving working capital, cost savings through supply chain optimization and prudent allocation of capital.

Our first quarter of the fiscal year historically has been a seasonally slower period as the construction season winds down before the onset of the winter months. We believe that our Americas Mills operations remain strong, and the backlog in our Americas Fabrication business is good."

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)
(dollars in thousands)

This press release contains financial measures not derived in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided below.

Adjusted Operating Profit is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management uses adjusted operating profit to evaluate the financial performance of CMC. Adjusted operating profit is the sum of adjusted operating profit from continuing operations and adjusted operating profit (loss) from discontinued operations. Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations is the sum of our earnings (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes (benefit), interest expense and discounts on sales of accounts receivable. Adjusted operating profit (loss) from discontinued operations is the sum of our earnings (loss) from discontinued operations before income taxes (benefit), interest expense and discounts on sales of accounts receivable. For added flexibility, we may sell certain accounts receivable both in the U.S. and internationally. We consider sales of receivables as an alternative source of liquidity to finance our operations, and we believe that removing these costs provides a clearer perspective of CMC's operating performance. Adjusted operating profit may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is the sum of adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is the sum of our earnings (loss) from continuing operations before net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests, interest expense and income taxes (benefit). It also excludes CMC's largest recurring non-cash charge, depreciation and amortization, as well as impairment charges, which are also non-cash. Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations is the sum of our earnings (loss) from discontinued operations before net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests, interest expense and income taxes (benefit). It also excludes the largest recurring non-cash charge from discontinued operations, depreciation and amortization, as well as impairment charges from discontinued operations, which are also non-cash. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings or as a better measure of liquidity than net cash flows from operating activities, as determined by GAAP. However, we believe that adjusted EBITDA provides relevant and useful information, which is often used by analysts, creditors and other interested parties in our industry. Adjusted EBITDA to interest expense is a covenant test in certain of CMC's debt agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is also the target benchmark for our annual and long-term cash incentive performance plans for management. Adjusted EBITDA may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
