Plum Creek Reports Results for Third Quarter 2015

Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. (NYSE: PCL) today announced third quarter earnings of $100 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, on revenues of $414 million. Earnings for the third quarter of 2014 were $61 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, on revenues of $375 million. The results for the third quarter of 2014 included a $3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, after-tax gain from insurance recoveries related to a fire at the company’s medium density fiberboard (MDF) plant in June 2014.

Earnings for the first nine months of 2015 were $163 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, on revenues of $1.1 billion. For the first nine months of 2014, earnings were $146 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, on revenues of $1.0 billion. Results for the first nine months of 2014 included a $2 million, or $0.01 per share, after-tax gain reflecting insurance recoveries net of the fire losses from the MDF fire.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure of operating performance, for the first nine months of 2015 was $472 million, higher than the $389 million in the same period of 2014. The growth in adjusted EBITDA is largely the result of the timing of Real Estate activity during 2015. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and cash flow from operations is provided as an attachment to this release.

“Earnings for the third quarter were better than we initially anticipated with good performance from each of our business segments despite uneven demand and more challenging near-term market conditions,” said Rick Holley, chief executive officer. “As always, our operations are remaining flexible, adjusting to local market conditions with the goal of maximizing the value of our harvests over the long term.”

Review of Third Quarter Operations

The Northern Resources segment reported operating income of $6 million during the third quarter, compared to the $13 million reported during the third quarter of 2014. Overall harvest volumes were about 167,000 tons, or 16 percent, lower than the same period of 2014. Fire restrictions during the quarter limited harvesting activity somewhat in the western states, impacting the segment’s sawlog harvest by approximately 50,000 tons. Fire damaged only 350 acres of Plum Creek lands despite the active Western fire season. Average sawlog prices in the third quarter declined about $4 per ton, or 5 percent, from near record levels reported in the prior year. Average pulpwood prices increased $4 per ton, about 9 percent, over the third quarter of 2014. Pulpwood demand remained strong as mills in the Lake States and New England found it challenging to build log inventories due to tight supply conditions in both regions.

Operating income in the Southern Resources segment was $33 million, down $2 million from the third quarter of 2014. Although harvest volumes were largely unchanged compared to the third quarter of 2014, the harvest mix shifted toward a higher component of pulpwood. Average sawlog prices were comparable to those reported a year ago, while Southern pulpwood prices increased $1 per ton, approximately 5 percent, over the same period.

The Real Estate segment reported revenue of $129 million and operating income of $84 million in the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter 2014 revenue was $69 million and operating income was $34 million. Results for the third quarter of 2015 included the previously disclosed sale of approximately 98,000 acres of non-strategic timberlands in Florida for $1,230 per acre. The company also sold 3,700 acres of recreation lands for $2,015 per acre and 1,060 acres of small non-strategic timberlands, primarily in New England, for $650 per acre during the quarter.

The Manufacturing segment reported operating income of $8 million for the third quarter compared to $16 million for the third quarter of 2014. The 2014 results included a $5 million pre-tax insurance recovery gain. Excluding the non-recurring gain, results in the third quarter of 2014 were $11 million. The $3 million decline in profitability compared to the prior year is primarily due to weaker results from the lumber product line.

Operating income from the Energy and Natural Resources segment was $5 million, down $1 million from the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in earnings was primarily the result of lower royalty income from coal and natural gas assets compared to the third quarter of 2014.

Joint Venture

During the third quarter of 2015, the company announced it had formed a joint venture with several institutional investors to own and sustainably manage a portfolio of U.S. timberlands. The joint venture, Twin Creeks Timber, LLC, will provide the institutional investors an opportunity to co-invest in timberlands currently owned by Plum Creek and to purchase other high quality timberlands on the open market. The initial portfolio, valued at approximately $560 million ($2,150 per acre), will consist of 260,000 acres of Southern U.S. timberland located in five states and will be sourced from Plum Creek timberlands in the region. In January 2016, Plum Creek will sell timberlands valued at approximately $420 million to Twin Creeks for cash, and contribute timberlands valued at approximately $140 million for a 25 percent equity interest in the joint venture. The venture is expected to begin operations in January 2016.

“The formation of Twin Creeks is an exciting opportunity for Plum Creek. We’ve structured the venture to align the interests of both our institutional investor partners and Plum Creek,” continued Holley. “The transaction confirms the value of our Southern timberland portfolio, preserves our market presence and economies of scale, creates a platform for future growth, and sources capital that can be used to benefit our long-term shareholders.”

Share Repurchase

During the third quarter of 2015, the company repurchased $50 million of common stock, approximately 1.3 million shares at an average price of $39.20 per share. During the first nine months of the year, the company repurchased $100 million of common stock, nearly 2.5 million shares at an average price of $40.30 per share. As of September 30, 2015, the company had $200 million remaining on its share repurchase authorization.

Outlook

Residential construction markets continue to slowly recover and the company expects housing activity will reach 1.1 million starts during 2015. During the first nine months of the year, the North American lumber supply exceeded demand and led to declining lumber prices. Late in the third quarter, sawmills throughout North America began adjusting their production schedules and lumber markets are firming in response. The company expects housing starts to increase approximately 14 percent in 2016 to about 1.25 million starts, with continued growth beyond 2016 to demographically supportable levels of about 1.5 million starts.

“With residential construction growth continuing at a slow pace and sawmill customers adjusting production levels in response to weaker prices, we are planning to operate conservatively during the balance of 2015,” continued Holley. “We are adjusting our near-term harvest plans to match customer demand in our local timber markets and expect prices in most markets to remain at third quarter levels. This is consistent with our longstanding goal of maximizing the net present value of our timber assets.”

During the fourth quarter, harvest levels in the Northern and Southern Resources segments are expected to be similar to third quarter levels, but less than original plans. As a result, overall harvest levels for the year are expected to be between 18.5 and 19.0 million tons, which is lower than the initial harvest plans for the year.

Fourth quarter Real Estate segment revenues are expected to be between $35 and $45 million and the Manufacturing and Energy and Natural Resources segments are expected to report fourth quarter results similar to the third quarter of 2015.

The company expects to report fourth quarter earnings between $0.13 and $0.18 per share resulting in full-year earnings between $1.06 and $1.11 per share.

“We have long pursued a strategy designed to grow the value of our timberland portfolio over time. Our steady investment in forest productivity and our active portfolio management has built one of the most productive and diversified timberland portfolios in the nation. The recent announcement of the Twin Creeks Joint Venture highlights the value of our long-term approach to timberland management and our ongoing commitment to disciplined capital allocation. We will continue to allocate the capital we generate to the opportunities that benefit our long-term shareholders including debt retirement and share repurchases,” concluded Holley.

Segment Data - Adjusted EBITDA
Reconciliation of Operating Income and Net Cash
Provided by Operating Activities
(Unaudited)

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings from continuing operations, excluding Equity Earnings from the Timberland Venture, and before interest expense (including any gains or losses from extinguishment of debt), taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and basis in real estate sold. In addition to including Equity Earnings or Loss from Real Estate Development Ventures in Adjusted EBITDA, we also include, as an add back to Operating Income for the Other Segment, our proportional share of depreciation, depletion, amortization, and basis in real estate sold from this equity method investment. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components of our consolidated financial statements.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period, and each business segment’s contribution to that performance, by eliminating non-cash charges to earnings, which can vary significantly by business segment. These non-cash charges include timber depletion, depreciation of fixed assets and the basis in real estate sold. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental liquidity measure because we believe it is useful in measuring our ability to generate cash. In addition, we believe Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors, lenders and rating agencies to assess our financial performance.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and net cash from operating activities, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP performance and liquidity measures, is provided in the following schedules:
