Olin Announces Second Quarter 2016 Earnings

Second Quarter 2016 Highlights - Net loss of $1.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of $180.4 million - Full year adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $840 million to $900 million - Announced third quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $220 million to $250 million

CLAYTON, Mo., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Olin Corporation (NYSE: OLN) announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

The second quarter 2016 reported net loss was $1.0 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. Second quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA of $180.4 million reflects depreciation and amortization expense of $132.4 million, restructuring charges of $8.2 million, and acquisition-related integration costs of $16.3 million. Adjusted net income from operations per share was $0.24 per diluted share, which excludes the aforementioned restructuring charges, acquisition-related integration costs and $43.2 million of step-up depreciation and amortization expense. Sales in the second quarter 2016 were $1,364.0 million.

John E. Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our outlook for the business remains positive. We continue to believe that long-term favorable trends are developing in the caustic soda market. The improvement story in the Epoxy business remains intact and forecasted results are in line with expectations. There are significant cost and operational synergy savings expected to be realized over the next four to six quarters. Finally, we believe that favorable market dynamics in chlor alkali products, expected improvement in ethylene dichloride pricing, the achievement of synergies and cost reductions, and continued improvement in the Epoxy business provide Olin with the opportunity to earn in excess of $1.5 billion of annual adjusted EBITDA in mid-cycle economic conditions."

In the third quarter of 2016, Olin anticipates net income in the range of $15 million to $35 million, or $0.10 to $0.20 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA in the range of $220 million to $250 million.

  • Net income includes approximately $0.24 per share of expected restructuring costs, acquisition-related integration costs and acquisition step-up depreciation and amortization expense;
  • Sequentially higher Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls segment earnings are expected, driven by improved volumes and higher caustic soda pricing;
  • Sequentially higher Epoxy segment earnings are expected due to improved volumes and approximately $10 million of lower maintenance turnaround costs;
  • Sequentially stronger Winchester segment earnings are expected, driven by seasonal ammunition demand;
  • Pretax restructuring costs are forecast to be approximately $5 million;
  • Pretax acquisition-related integration costs are forecast to be approximately $15 million; and
  • Acquisition step-up depreciation and amortization expense is forecast to be approximately $40 million.

Olin also expects full year adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $840 million to $900 million.  This adjusted EBITDA forecast reflects:

  • Higher expected domestic and export caustic soda pricing in the second half of 2016 compared to the first half of 2016;
  • Improved profitability forecasted in the Epoxy business in the second half of 2016, reflecting increased volumes, improved productivity, and the absence of any significant planned maintenance outages;
  • Full year 2016 Winchester results that are forecast to exceed 2015 levels;
  • Continued weakness expected in chlorinated organic sales, reflecting ongoing softness in demand from refrigerant, packaging, and agriculture customers; and
  • Lower than expected export pricing for ethylene dichloride.

SEGMENT REPORTING

Olin defines segment earnings as income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, other operating income (expense) and income taxes and include the earnings of non-consolidated affiliates in segment results consistent with management's monitoring of the operating segments.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015, Olin modified reportable segments to incorporate the acquisition of Dow's chlorine products businesses (the Acquired Business). Olin reports in three operating segments:  Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls, Epoxy and Winchester. The new reporting structure has been retrospectively applied to the financial results for all periods presented. The former Olin Chlor Alkali Products and Olin Chemical Distribution segments have been included in the new Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls segment.

During 2016, Olin will provide sequential segment comparisons. Year-over-year segment comparisons for Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls and Epoxy would not be meaningful because Olin did not own the Acquired Business until October of 2015.

CHLOR ALKALI PRODUCTS AND VINYLS

Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls sales for the second quarter 2016 were $733.0 million compared to $704.3 million in the first quarter 2016. Second quarter 2016 segment earnings of $30.7 million declined compared to $68.1 million in the first quarter 2016 primarily due to lower caustic soda pricing, increased raw materials costs associated with ethylene and natural gas pricing, lower chlorinated organic volumes and pricing, and increased expenses for planned maintenance outages. Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls second quarter 2016 results included depreciation and amortization expense of $103.4 million compared to $101.9 million in first quarter 2016.

EPOXY

Epoxy sales for the second quarter 2016 of $450.0 million decreased compared to $460.2 million in the first quarter 2016.  The decline in Epoxy sales was primarily due to lower volumes because of planned maintenance outages. Second quarter 2016 segment earnings were breakeven compared to $8.2 million in the first quarter of 2016. The Epoxy segment earnings decline is primarily due to an increase of $9.5 million of expenses for planned maintenance outages and mark-to-market expense of $2.8 million associated with the fair value adjustment related to purchase accounting for inventory. These higher costs were partially offset by lower operating costs. Epoxy second quarter 2016 results included depreciation and amortization expense of $23.0 million compared to $21.7 million in first quarter 2016.

WINCHESTER

Winchester sales for the second quarter 2016 were $181.0 million compared to $183.7 million in the first quarter 2016. The decline is primarily due to decreased shipments to commercial customers. Second quarter 2016 segment earnings were $31.2 million compared to $28.7 million in the first quarter 2016.  The increase in segment earnings reflects lower commodity and material costs and lower manufacturing and other costs partially offset by lower commercial shipments. Winchester second quarter 2016 results included depreciation and amortization expense of $4.5 million compared to $4.6 million in first quarter 2016. 

CORPORATE AND OTHER COSTS

Pension income included in the second quarter 2016 Corporate and Other segment was $12.6 million compared to $12.2 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Second quarter 2016 charges to income for environmental investigatory and remedial activities were $2.4 million compared to $2.7 million in the first quarter 2016. These charges relate primarily to remedial and investigatory activities associated with former waste sites and past operations of the legacy Olin businesses.

Other corporate and unallocated costs in the second quarter 2016 decreased $5.7 million compared to the first quarter 2016, primarily due to lower legal and litigation costs and decreased management incentive compensation costs partially offset by increased mark-to-market adjustments on stock-based compensation expense.

CASH / DEBT

Olin's cash balance at June 30, 2016 was $66.6 million. During the first half of the year, working capital increased $63.2 million reflecting normal seasonal working capital growth. During the second quarter of 2016, Olin repaid maturing debt of approximately $142 million.

DIVIDEND

On July 28, 2016, Olin's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.20 on each share of Olin common stock. The dividend is payable on September 9, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 10, 2016. This will be the 359th consecutive quarterly dividend to be paid by the Company.

Olin management will host a conference call to discuss second quarter 2016 earnings at 10:00 A.M. ET on Tuesday, August 2, 2016.

These statements may include statements regarding the recent acquisition of the Acquired Business from The Dow Chemical Company (TDCC), the expected benefits and synergies of the transaction, and future opportunities for the combined company following the transaction. The statements contained in this communication that are not statements of historical fact may include forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties.

We have used the words "anticipate," "intend," "may," "expect," "believe," "should," "plan," "project," "estimate," "forecast," "optimistic," and variations of such words and similar expressions in this communication to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those matters expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of future events, new information or otherwise.  Relative to the dividend, the payment of cash dividends is subject to the discretion of our board of directors and will be determined in light of then-current conditions, including our earnings, our operations, our financial conditions, our capital requirements and other factors deemed relevant by our board of directors. In the future, our board of directors may change our dividend policy, including the frequency or amount of any dividend, in light of then-existing conditions.

The risks, uncertainties and assumptions involved in our forward-looking statements, many of which are discussed in more detail in our filings with the SEC, including without limitation the "Risk Factors" section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • sensitivity to economic, business and market conditions in the United States and overseas, including economic instability or a downturn in the sectors served by us, such as ammunition, vinyls, urethanes, and pulp and paper, and the migration by United States customers to low-cost foreign locations;
  • the cyclical nature of our operating results, particularly declines in average selling prices in the chlor alkali industry and the supply/demand balance for our products, including the impact of excess industry capacity or an imbalance in demand for our chlor alkali products;
  • our substantial amount of indebtedness and significant debt service obligations;
  • weak industry conditions could affect our ability to comply with the financial maintenance covenants in our senior credit facilities;
  • the integration of the Acquired Business being more difficult, time-consuming or costly than expected;
  • higher-than-expected raw material and energy, transportation, and/or logistics costs;
  • our reliance on a limited number of suppliers for specified feedstock and services and our reliance on third-party transportation;
  • economic and industry downturns that result in diminished product demand and excess manufacturing capacity in any of our segments and that, in many cases, result in lower selling prices and profits;
  • new regulations or public policy changes regarding the transportation of hazardous chemicals and the security of chemical manufacturing facilities;
  • changes in legislation or government regulations or policies;
  • failure to control costs or to achieve targeted cost reductions;
  • adverse conditions in the credit and capital markets, limiting or preventing our ability to borrow or raise capital;
  • costs and other expenditures in excess of those projected for environmental investigation and remediation or other legal proceedings;
  • unexpected litigation outcomes;
  • complications resulting from our multiple enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems;
  • the failure or an interruption of our information technology systems;
  • the occurrence of unexpected manufacturing interruptions and outages, including those occurring as a result of labor disruptions and production hazards;
  • the effects of any declines in global equity markets on asset values and any declines in interest rates used to value the liabilities in our pension plan;
  • future funding obligations to our qualified defined benefit pension plan attributable to assumed pension liabilities;
  • fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;
  • failure to attract, retain and motivate key employees;
  • our ability to provide the same types and levels of benefits, services and resources to the Acquired Business that historically have been provided by TDCC at the same cost;
  • differences between the historical financial information of Olin and the Acquired Business and our future operating performance;
  • the effect of any changes resulting from the transaction with TDCC in customer, supplier and other business relationships; and
  • the effects of restrictions imposed on our business following the transaction with TDCC in order to avoid significant tax-related liabilities.

All of our forward-looking statements should be considered in light of these factors. In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we consider immaterial could affect the accuracy of our forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (a)





Olin's definition of Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is net (loss) income plus an add-back for depreciation and amortization, interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), other expense (income), restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, fair value inventory purchase accounting adjustment and certain other non-recurring items.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors as a supplemental financial measure to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structures, taxes, or historical cost basis.  The use of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to replace any measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are omitted from this release because Olin is unable to provide such reconciliations without the use of unreasonable efforts.  This inability results from the inherent difficulty in forecasting generally and quantifying certain projected amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations.  In particular, sufficient information is not available to calculate certain adjustments required for such reconciliations, including interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), other expense (income), restructuring charges, and acquisition-related costs. Because of our inability to calculate such adjustments, forward-looking net income guidance is also omitted from this release.  We expect these adjustments to have a potentially significant impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Olin Corporation





Non-GAAP Financial Measures (a)





Olin's definition of adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share is net income (loss) per share plus a per dilutive share plus an add-back for step-up depreciation and amortization recorded in conjunction with the Acquired Business, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, certain other non-recurring items and the tax impact of the aforementioned adjustments.  Adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share is a non-GAAP financial measure excluding certain items that we do not consider part of ongoing operations.  Management believes that this supplemental financial measure is meaningful to investors as a financial performance metric which is useful to investors for comparative purposes. The use of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to replace any measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP and adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
