SunCoke Energy, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

  • Net loss attributable to SXC was $4.6 million, or $0.07 per share, in the current period compared to a loss of $13.5 million, or $0.21 per share, in the prior year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $46.5 million, up $13.1 million versus the prior year period
  • Reduced consolidated debt outstanding by $57.5 million, including SXCP's repurchase of $17.1 million of face value bonds during the quarter
  • Reaffirmed full-year guidance for 2016 Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $210 million to $235 million

SunCoke Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SXC) today reported results for the second quarter 2016, which reflect the absence of a non-cash pension plan termination charge in the prior year period and comparable year-over-year operating results after considering several offsetting factors described below.

“In the second quarter, we delivered results in line with expectations for our cokemaking business, but continue to experience production shortfalls at Indiana Harbor and saw low volumes across our Coal Logistics franchise," said Fritz Henderson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of SunCoke Energy, Inc. "Despite these challenges, our take-or-pay contracts continue to underpin our steady results and we remain committed to optimizing asset performance across the business."

SunCoke continued to de-lever its balance sheet by reducing total debt outstanding by more than $57 million in the quarter. The Company also reaffirmed its full-year outlook for 2016 Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $210 million to $235 million.

Henderson added, "With the first half of the year behind us, we are in position to deliver on our commitments to shareholders and remain flexible and responsive to the evolving industry landscape."

Revenues declined $55.5 million to $292.7 million in second quarter 2016 compared with the same prior year period, primarily reflecting the pass-through of lower coal costs as well as lower coke sales volumes.

Net loss attributable to SXC was $4.6 million, or $0.07 per share, in the current period compared to a loss of $13.5 million, or $0.21 per share, in the prior year period. The current period was impacted by a $3.5 million gain on the extinguishment of debt, a $5.1 million loss on the divestiture of the coal mining business, as well as the items discussed below.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $13.1 million to $46.5 million, primarily due to lower operational costs at Indiana Harbor and our divested coal mining business, the contribution from the Convent Marine Terminal ("CMT") acquisition and the lapping of a second quarter 2015 pension termination charge of $12.6 million. These items were partly offset by lower sales volumes as mentioned above.

SECOND QUARTER SEGMENT RESULTS

Domestic Coke

Domestic Coke consists of cokemaking facilities and heat recovery operations at our Jewell, Indiana Harbor, Haverhill, Granite City and Middletown plants.

Revenues $ 274.0   $ 326.5   $ (52.5 )
Adjusted EBITDA(1) $ 51.0 $ 56.2 $ (5.2 )

Adjusted EBITDA per ton(2)   $ 51.41     $ 50.63     $ 0.78  
(1)   See definition of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliation elsewhere in this release.
(2) Reflects Domestic Coke Adjusted EBITDA divided by Domestic Coke sales volumes.
 
  • Revenues were affected by both the pass-through of lower coal prices and a decrease in sales volume of 118 thousand tons, primarily due to the timing of shipments at Jewell, lower production at Indiana Harbor and the impact of customer volume accommodations at Haverhill.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $5.2 million, reflecting lower sales volumes, the complete write-off of a $1.4 million receivable related to 2015 spot coke sales to Essar Algoma and $1.3 million of coal transportation charges, which were transferred to our Domestic Coke segment as a result of the divestiture of our coal mining business. These decreases were partly offset by lower operating and maintenance spending at Indiana Harbor of $4.6 million as compared to the same prior year period.

Coal Logistics

Coal Logistics consists of the coal handling and mixing services operated by SXCP at CMT located on the Mississippi river in Louisiana, Lake Terminal in East Chicago, Indiana, Kanawha River Terminals, LLC ("KRT"), which has terminals along the Ohio and Kanawha rivers in West Virginia, and Dismal River Terminal ("DRT"), located in Virginia adjacent to our Jewell Cokemaking facility. DRT was constructed to accommodate Jewell in its direct procurement of third-party coal, beginning in 2016. The current and prior year periods are not comparable due to the contribution of CMT, which was acquired on August 12, 2015.

  2016   2015  

Increase/
(Decrease)

Revenues $ 11.2   $ 8.6   $ 2.6

Tons handled by CMT (thousands of tons)(2)   976         976  
(1)   See definition of Adjusted EBITDA and reconciliation elsewhere in this release.
(2) Reflects inbound tons handled during the period.
 
  • Revenues were up $2.6 million, driven by a $7.0 million contribution from CMT, partly offset by lower volumes at KRT and Lake Terminal.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was up $0.4 million, driven by a $4.2 million contribution from CMT, partly offset by lower volumes at KRT and Lake Terminal. Below-target throughput in the quarter was driven by demand-side challenges in both the thermal and metallurgical coal markets.

Brazil Coke

Brazil Coke consists of a cokemaking facility in Vitória, Brazil, which we operate for an affiliate of ArcelorMittal. Brazil Coke earns operating and technology licensing fees based on production and recognizes a dividend on a preferred stock investment assuming certain minimum production levels are achieved.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million was comparable to the prior year period

Coal Mining

In April 2016, the Company divested substantially all of its coal mining business to Revelation Energy, LLC, which resulted in a total loss of $14.7 million, of which $9.6 million and $5.1 million were recorded in the first and second quarters of 2016, respectively.

  • Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the $5.1 million loss on divestiture discussed above, was a loss of $0.9 million in the current year period compared to a loss of $5.4 million in the prior year period. The improved results reflect a shift of $1.3 million of coal transportation to our Domestic Coke segment and lower operating costs due to the divestiture of our coal mining business, which was completed in the quarter.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and other expenses, including legacy costs, were $11.4 million in second quarter 2016, an improvement of $13.6 million versus second quarter 2015, driven by a $12.6 million non-cash pension plan termination charge in the second quarter 2015. Current period savings from lower headcount also contributed to lower corporate costs.

2016 OUTLOOK

Our 2016 guidance is as follows:

  • Domestic coke production is expected to be between 4.0 million and 4.1 million tons
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $210 million and $235 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXC is expected to be between $105 million and $124 million, reflecting the impact of public ownership in SXCP
  • Capital expenditures are projected to be approximately $45 million
  • Cash generated by operations is estimated to be between $150 million and $170 million
  • Cash taxes are projected to be between $4 million and $9 million

DEFINITIONS

  • Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted for impairments, coal rationalization costs, changes to our contingent consideration liability related to our acquisition of CMT, and interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and impairments attributable to our equity method investment. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to net income or operating income under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures in other businesses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of the operating performance and liquidity of the Company's net assets and its ability to incur and service debt, fund capital expenditures and make distributions. Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures and because it eliminates items that have less bearing on our operating performance and liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered a substitute for net income, operating cash flow or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXC represents Adjusted EBITDA less Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interests.
  • Legacy Costs include costs associated with former mining employee-related liabilities net of certain royalty revenues.
