CLEVELAND, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Aleris Corporation today reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Logo - http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20140115/CL46886LOGO

Third Quarter Summary

  • Net loss of $22 million compared to $25 million in the third quarter of 2015
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $53 million compared to $68 million in the third quarter of 2015
  • Stronger building and construction demand; stable global automotive volumes
  • Weak distribution demand; softening aerospace demand
  • Asia Pacific results continuing to benefit from growing aerospace volumes
  • North America performance negatively impacted by planned and unplanned outages, the majority of which were tied to the Lewisport transformation, and tighter metal spreads
  • Liquidity of $288 million as of September 30, 2016
  • Announced a definitive agreement for Aleris Corporation to be acquired by Zhongwang USA LLC

Fourth Quarter Outlook

  • Performance expected to be in line with the fourth quarter of 2015
  • Improved North America building and construction volumes
  • Minor weakness in Europe aerospace volumes will be offset by Asia Pacific aerospace volumes
  • Continued weakness in distribution and heat exchanger volumes

"We continued to see strong demand in the third quarter in both the global automotive and North American building and construction industries, the benefits of which were unfortunately offset by planned and unplanned production outages largely tied to our ongoing transformation at Lewisport," Sean Stack, Aleris President and CEO said. "While higher customer inventory levels led to weaker than anticipated demand in aerospace, our global aerospace volume growth remained slightly positive due to the additional sales we have been able to generate as a result of the continued ramp up of our aerospace plate mill in Zhenjiang, China.

"Also in the quarter, we were pleased to announce the pending acquisition of Aleris by Zhongwang USA LLC," Stack added. "We believe this transition to strategic ownership, through which Aleris will remain a separate entity under the continued leadership of our current management team, will allow us to accelerate our strategy to expand our capabilities to support the production of high-value advanced materials."

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Net loss was $22 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $25 million in the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $53 million for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $68 million for the third quarter of 2015. Third quarter net loss and Adjusted EBITDA were impacted by the following:

  • a decrease in volumes and an unfavorable mix of products sold decreased Adjusted EBITDA approximately $13 million. Weaker than anticipated distribution volumes, continued sluggish truck trailer volumes, and planned and unplanned production outages negatively impacted North America. Aerospace and heat exchanger demand in Europe also softened during the quarter;
  • unfavorable metal spreads in North America decreased Adjusted EBITDA approximately $3 million; and
  • improved rolling margins increased Adjusted EBITDA approximately $1 million.

In addition to the factors that impacted net loss and Adjusted EBITDA, net loss was also affected by the following:

  • a $30 million favorable change in unrealized gains on derivative financial instruments as a result of aluminum price movements and derivative settlements;
  • a $4 million reduction in interest expense primarily due to increased capitalized interest partially offset by increased interest expense resulting from the issuance of the Senior Secured Notes due 2021;
  • a $4 million decrease in currency exchange losses on debt; and
  • a $3 million favorable variation in metal price lag ($1 million unfavorable in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $4 million unfavorable in the third quarter of 2015). Metal price lag represents the difference between the price of primary aluminum included in our revenues and the price of aluminum impacting our cost of sales net of hedge gains and losses.

These favorable changes to net loss were partially offset by the following:

  • a $13 million unfavorable change in the provision for income taxes;
  • a $7 million increase in start-up costs resulting from our North America autobody sheet ("ABS") project; and
  • a $4 million increase in professional fees and business development costs primarily associated with the proposed acquisition of Aleris Corporation by Zhongwang USA LLC.

In the third quarter of 2016, capital expenditures were $74 million, the majority of which was spent on the North America ABS project at our Lewisport, Kentucky facility and related spending to upgrade critical equipment and capabilities at the facility. That project continues to progress on schedule with shipments anticipated to commence in 2017.

As of September 30, 2016, Aleris had liquidity of $288 million, which consisted of approximately $251 million of availability under our 2015 ABL Facility plus $36 million of cash on hand.

North America

North America segment income decreased to $18 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $36 million in the third quarter of 2015. Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $18 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $34 million in the third quarter of 2015. Performance drivers for segment income and segment Adjusted EBITDA included:

  • lower volumes decreased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $11 million. The decrease in volumes resulted primarily from a 25 percent decrease in distribution volumes and a 17 percent decrease in truck trailer volumes, more than offsetting a 7 percent increase in building and construction volumes.
  • contributing to the volume decrease were planned outages on the Lewisport hot mill related to the North America ABS project, which resulted in significant production down time. The project also caused production inefficiencies that impacted the facility's performance during the quarter;
  • unfavorable scrap spreads resulting from low aluminum prices and the related tightening of supply decreased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $3 million; and
  • higher employee costs and unfavorable productivity that more than offset lower natural gas costs decreased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $2 million.

In addition to the factors above, segment income was impacted by a $2 million unfavorable variance in metal price lag.

Europe

Europe segment income increased to $41 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $35 million in the third quarter of 2015. Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased to $42 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $41 million in the third quarter of 2015. Performance drivers for segment income and segment Adjusted EBITDA included:

  • an unfavorable mix of products sold, resulting from reduced aerospace volumes, decreased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $4 million. Total volumes were flat, as 6 percent and 9 percent decreases in aerospace and heat exchanger volumes, respectively, were offset by 7 percent and 4 percent increases in regional plate and sheet and automotive volumes, respectively;
  • favorable productivity and lower natural gas costs more than offset higher employee costs and increased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $3 million; and
  • favorable currency translation increased segment Adjusted EBITDA approximately $2 million.

In addition to the factors above, segment income was impacted by a $5 million favorable variance in metal price lag.

Asia Pacific

Our Asia Pacific segment reported segment income and segment Adjusted EBITDA of $3 million in the third quarter of 2016 as compared to $1 million in the third quarter of 2015. The increases were primarily due to the ongoing improvement in mix of products sold toward higher aerospace volume.

Potential Acquisition of Aleris Corporation

On August 29, 2016, we entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Zhongwang USA LLC ("Zhongwang USA") (the "Merger"). Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Zhongwang USA has agreed to pay approximately $1.1 billion in cash, subject to adjustment, for the equity of Aleris Corporation and will assume certain of the Company's outstanding indebtedness. We expect Aleris Corporation to continue to be headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio and operated as an independent entity and that our management team will remain in place. The Merger was unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of Aleris Corporation and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2017, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions. The Merger is not subject to a financing condition. There can be no assurance that the Merger will be consummated at all or that it will close in the first quarter of 2017.

Year-to-Date Results

Key financial highlights for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 include:

  • Revenues of approximately $2,051 million compared to approximately $2,281 million for the prior year period. The decrease of 10 percent was primarily attributable to lower average aluminum prices included in our invoiced prices. The decrease was partially offset by improved rolling margins.
  • Net loss of $41 million in the current year compared to net income of $61 million in 2015. The change resulted from a gain on the sale of discontinued businesses in 2015, the factors that drove the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA discussed below, an unfavorable change in the income tax provision, increased start-up costs and increased debt extinguishment costs. These were partially offset by a favorable variance in unrealized gains and losses on derivatives, a favorable variance in metal price lag, lower interest expense and lower restructuring charges.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased from $183 million in 2015 to $162 million in the current year as a result of unfavorable year-over-year scrap spreads and currency movements. These decreases were partially offset by improved rolling margins as well as lower natural gas costs and productivity gains that exceeded inflation in employee costs.
  • Cash provided by operating activities totaled $47 million in the current year compared to $71 million in the prior year period. The current year cash provided by operating activities primarily relates to $61 million of cash from earnings, partially offset by cash used to fund a $14 million increase in net operating assets.
  • Capital expenditures increased to $296 million from $175 million during the prior year period as a result of additional spending on our North America ABS project.

Fourth Quarter Outlook

We estimate that segment income and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2016 will be in line with the fourth quarter of 2015. Factors influencing anticipated fourth quarter performance include:

  • Improved North America building and construction volumes;
  • Minor weakness in Europe aerospace volumes will be offset by Asia Pacific aerospace volumes;
  • Continued weakness in distribution and heat exchanger volumes; and
  • Segment income in the fourth quarter will be dependent, in part, on changing aluminum prices and the resulting metal price lag.

We expect capital spending of approximately $375 million in 2016 before capitalized interest, including the amounts spent through the third quarter of the year.

Investors, potential investors and other readers are urged to consider these factors carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether in response to new information, futures events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law. 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results reported in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes information regarding certain non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and commercial margin as performance metrics and believes these measures provide additional information commonly used by the holders of the Senior Notes and parties to our 2015 ABL Facility with respect to the ongoing performance of our underlying business activities, as well as our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital needs. In addition, EBITDA with certain adjustments is a component of certain covenants under the indentures governing the Senior Notes. Adjusted EBITDA, including the impact of metal price lag, is a component of certain financial covenants under the credit agreement governing the 2015 ABL Facility. Management also uses commercial margin as a performance metric and believes that it provides useful information regarding the performance of our segments because it measures the price at which we sell our aluminum products above the hedged cost of the metal and the effects of metal price lag, thereby reflecting the value-added components of our commercial activities independent of aluminum prices which we cannot control.

Our EBITDA calculations represent net income and loss attributable to Aleris Corporation before interest income and expense, provision for and benefit from income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and income from discontinued operations, net of tax. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding metal price lag, unrealized gains and losses on derivative financial instruments, restructuring charges, the impact of recording inventory and other items at fair value through purchase accounting, currency exchange gains and losses on debt, stock-based compensation expense, start-up costs and certain other gains and losses. Segment Adjusted EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA on a per segment basis. EBITDA as defined in the indentures governing the Senior Notes also limits the amount of adjustments for cost savings, operational improvement and synergies for the purpose of determining our compliance with such covenants. Adjusted EBITDA as defined under the 2015 ABL Facility also limits the amount of adjustments for restructuring charges and requires additional adjustments be made if certain annual pension funding levels are exceeded. Commercial margin represents revenues less the hedged cost of metal and the effects of metal price lag.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, segment Adjusted EBITDA and commercial margin (collectively, the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures"), as we use them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. We calculate the Non-GAAP Financial Measures by eliminating the impact of a number of items we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance, and certain other items. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis. However, the Non-GAAP Financial Measures are not financial measurements recognized under GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use the Non-GAAP Financial Measures in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income and loss attributable to Aleris Corporation, operating income and loss, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or in addition to, and not as an alternative for, cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. The Non-GAAP Financial Measures have limitations as analytical tools, and they should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, our measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
