Koppers Holdings Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

Sales Decrease 9% Compared to Prior Year Quarter; Railroad and Utility Products and Services Operating Profit Increases 43% Over Prior Year Quarter; Diluted EPS ($0.20) Loss Compared to $0.65 Earnings in Prior Year Quarter After Restructuring Charges; Higher Tax Rate Major Difference in Fourth Quarter Adjusted EPS of $0.44 Compared to $0.66 in Prior Year

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - Koppers Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KOP) today announced results for its fiscal 2013 fourth quarter.

Consolidated sales of $341.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 were nine percent, or $33.1 million lower than sales of $374.9 million in the prior year quarter. Sales for Railroad and Utility Products and Services (RUPS) of $128.1 million decreased by three percent or $4.4 million compared to sales of $132.5 million in the prior year quarter, while sales for Carbon Materials and Chemicals (CMC) totaling $213.7 million decreased by 12 percent or $28.7 million compared to sales of $242.4 million in the prior year quarter. The net decrease in sales in RUPS was due mainly to lower sales volumes for crossties due to the timing of customer orders and increased competition from hardwood lumber markets, partially offset by incremental sales from the acquisition of a utility pole business in Australia in November 2012. CMC sales were lower due to lower sales volumes and prices for carbon pitch due to reduced production of aluminum in the United States combined with excess product availability in Europe and the Middle East.

Net loss attributable to Koppers for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, was $4.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share as compared to net income attributable to Koppers of $13.6 million, or $0.65 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decreases in net income attributable to Koppers and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 were due to lower profitability for CMC operations that included $13.6 million of restructuring costs related to the Uithoorn, The Netherlands, Tangshan, China, Follansbee, West Virginia, and Portland, Oregon facilities, and $2.9 million of tank and tank car cleaning costs. These charges were partly offset by higher profitability for RUPS driven by a favorable product mix combined with incremental profits from the acquisition of a utility pole business in Australia in November 2012. Additionally, there was a negative impact from a higher effective tax rate for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 due in part to reduced profitability from European operations. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, were $9.0 million and $0.44 per share compared to $13.9 million and $0.66 per share in the prior year quarter after excluding $13.1 million of charges net of taxes and non-controlling interests for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and after excluding $0.3 million of after-tax charges in the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The items comprising the $13.1 million of charges for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 include $14.1 million of pre-tax restructuring charges from the CMC facilities noted above combined with charges related to the wood treating facility in Grenada, Mississippi that was closed in 2012, and $2.9 million of pre-tax charges related to tank and tank car cleaning. The $0.3 million of after-tax charges for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was from closure costs related to the Grenada facility. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 were lower than the prior year quarter due to lower profitability from European operations and a higher effective tax rate, partially offset by higher profitability from RUPS. The estimated impact of the higher effective tax rate excluding the impact of non-deductible impairment and restructuring charges for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 compared to the prior year quarter was approximately $0.20 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, was $33.0 million compared to $33.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, with the decrease due primarily to significantly lower results from European operations which more than offset higher results from Railroad and Utility Products and Services.

Consolidated sales of $1.478 billion for the year ended December 31, 2013 were five percent, or $77 million lower than sales of $1.555 billion in the prior year. Sales for RUPS of $572.2 million increased by three percent or $16.9 million over prior year sales of $555.3 million, while sales for CMC totaling $906.1 million decreased by nine percent, or $93.6 million compared to $999.7 million in the prior year. The increase in sales in RUPS was due mainly to the acquisition of a utility pole business in Australia in November 2012. The decrease in sales for CMC was due primarily to lower sales volumes and prices for carbon pitch and lower sales volumes for phthalic anhydride.

Net income attributable to Koppers for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $40.4 million, or $1.94 per diluted share as compared to net income attributable to Koppers of $65.6 million, or $3.13 per diluted share in fiscal year 2012. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2013, were $54.1 million and $2.60 per share compared to $68.7 million and $3.27 per share in the prior year after excluding $13.6 million of charges net of taxes and non-controlling interests for 2013 and after excluding $2.2 million of after-tax charges and $0.8 million of tax expense related to the European consolidation project in the similar 2012 period. The $13.6 million of charges net of taxes and non-controlling interests for the year ended December 31, 2013 were due to $16.2 million of pre-tax restructuring charges related to the Uithoorn, Tangshan, Grenada, Follansbee, and Portland facilities and $2.9 million of tank and tank car cleaning charges, partially offset by $1.8 million of pre-tax gain on the sale and environmental reserve reversal for a former wood treating facility in Australia. The $2.2 million of after-tax charges for the year ended December 31, 2012 were related to the closure of the Grenada facility combined with impairment charges related to our cogeneration facility in Muncy, Pennsylvania. The decreases in adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share for year 2013 were due to lower profitability for CMC as a result of reduced results from European operations driven by weak economic conditions combined with lower sales volumes for phthalic anhydride in North America as a result of lower demand from certain end-markets combined with increased levels of European imports. Reduced profitability for CMC more than offset higher profitability from RUPS that was due to a favorable product mix for railroad crossties and higher profitability for utility poles as a result of the acquisition of a utility pole business in Australia in November 2012. The negative impact from a higher effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2013 driven in part by lower earnings from European operations more than offset the benefit from the non-recurrence of $3.9 million of net charges for CMC for the year ended December 31, 2012 that consisted of a pitch tank leak, a plant outage, and an increase in the allowance for doubtful accounts, partially offset by a refund due to a supplier audit of transport weights for raw materials. The estimated impact of the higher effective tax rate excluding the impact of non-deductible impairment and restructuring charges for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the prior year was approximately $0.37 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013, was $150.4 million compared to $159.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2012, with the decrease due mainly to reduced profitability in CMC, which more than offset higher profitability for RUPS as described in detail in the preceding paragraph.

Commenting on the results, Walt Turner, president and CEO of Koppers, said, "Despite the continuing challenges facing our global Carbon Materials and Chemicals business due to difficult end-markets in Europe, we would have been close to last year's record fourth quarter adjusted EPS if not for the impact from our effective tax rate in 2013 compared to 2012 of approximately $0.20 per share. As previously announced, we have recently taken steps to rationalize capacity in Europe and North America that will lower our overall cost structure and improve our capacity utilization and profitability in those regions. The restructuring activities that we have undertaken are estimated to result in pre-tax savings of $9 million in 2014 and $11 million annually thereafter. In regard to our global Railroad and Utility Products and Services business, I am pleased with the continued strong performance in both North America and Australia and expect our recently acquired Canadian crosstie treatment business to contribute to its continued strength in 2014. I expect 2014 to be an active year as we focus on various projects aimed at growing the top line, improving margins and right-sizing our business as we target long-term sustainable earnings growth."

Koppers believes that adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted operating profit and adjusted EBITDA provide information useful to investors in understanding the underlying operational performance of the company, its business and performance trends and facilitates comparisons between periods and with other corporations in similar industries. The exclusion of certain items permits evaluation and a comparison of results for ongoing business operations, and it is on this basis that Koppers management internally assesses the company's performance.

Although Koppers believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP basis financial measures.
