Koppers Holdings Inc. Reports Improved Second Quarter 2015 Results

Sales Increase 21 Percent From Prior Year Quarter; RUPS and PC Deliver Strong Quarters; Q2 2015 EPS of $0.44 and Adjusted EPS of $0.68 Compare Favorably to Q2 2014; Company Affirms 2015 Guidance; Debt Repayment of $56 Million Through Q2

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - August 06, 2015) - Koppers Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KOP), a global integrated producer of carbon compounds, specialty chemicals and treated wood products and services, today reported consolidated sales of $431.6 million for the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 21 percent, or $74.8 million, from sales of $356.8 million in the second quarter of 2014. The increase was driven by $117.1 million in sales from the Osmose acquisition and a record sales quarter for Railroad and Utility Products and Services (RUPS). These increases were partially offset by lower sales for Carbon Materials and Chemicals (CMC) and the negative impact from foreign currency translation due to the stronger U.S. dollar. Sales for CMC decreased due to lower sales volumes for carbon pitch and carbon black feedstock and lower sales prices for products affected by oil prices.

Net income attributable to Koppers for the quarter was $9.0 million, or $0.44 per diluted share compared to $1.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share were $14.0 million and $0.68 per share for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $8.1 million and $0.39 per share in the prior year quarter. The $5.0 million adjustment to net income for the second quarter of 2015 was attributable to plant closing and impairment charges and LIFO expense. Adjustments to net income for the second quarter of 2014 totaled $6.4 million and consisted of plant closing and impairment charges.

Koppers North American railroad results improved due to strong industry demand and increased hardwood availability. The Performance Chemicals (PC) business performed in line with expectations while profitability for CMC was significantly lower than the prior year quarter due to lower selling prices of certain CMC products that are impacted by oil prices. The increase in profitability for RUPS and PC more than offset an increase in interest expense of $6.3 million for the quarter as a result of higher average debt levels.

Commenting on the quarter, Leroy Ball, president and CEO of Koppers, said, "Our second quarter results exceeded my expectations given the various headwinds we continue to face. While lower oil prices and a stronger U.S. dollar continue to challenge our global CMC business, our RUPS business is benefiting as expected from increased availability of untreated crossties despite severe weather challenges in the Midwest and some reduction in Class I railroad treating demands. Our PC business also enjoyed strong volumes during the quarter due to seasonally higher demand in addition to the continued upward trend of existing home sales which is a critical driver for repair and remodeling expenditures."

Mr. Ball continued, "As stated at the beginning of the year, our focus continues to be on generating cash to de-lever the balance sheet, de-emphasizing our CMC growth strategy in the low-margin emerging markets and restructuring the overall CMC operating footprint. As we have reached the halfway point in the year, I am pleased with the progress we have made towards each of those goals. As a result, I believe we will reach the higher end of our 2015 debt reduction goal of $100-125 million by year end as we have already repaid $56 million through the second quarter."

2015 Guidance Affirmed

Commenting on 2015 Mr. Ball said, “With less than half of 2015 remaining, I still believe that we will finish the year with sales approximating $1.7 billion, adjusted EBITDA in the range of $165 to $175 million, and adjusted earnings per share between $1.60 and $1.90. Our guidance continues to be consistent with what has been previously communicated, and is predicated on average crude oil prices of $50 per barrel. While crosstie availability is much less of a concern in meeting our projections for the year than it was previously, the pressure on the rail industry from lower coal and gas related demand continues to be something we are watching closely as it could have an impact on cross tie treating demand in the latter half of this year. At this point, we believe that a modest reduction in Class I treating budgets can likely be absorbed by pent-up commercial demand.”

Summary of Second-Quarter Financial Performance:

  • Sales for RUPS of $170.9 million increased by 15 percent or $22.7 million compared to sales of $148.2 million in the prior year quarter with EBITDA margins of 12.9 percent compared to 11.3 percent in the prior year quarter. The net increase in sales and margins in RUPS was due mainly to higher sales volumes for treated and untreated railroad crossties. The incremental sales from the Osmose businesses that are included in RUPS were largely offset by lower sales of utility poles due to the sale of the North American utility business in January 2015, lower sales volumes of poles in Australia, and the negative translation effect of the stronger US dollar on Australian pole sales.
  • PC reported revenues of $102.3 million and EBITDA margins of 20.1 percent for the second quarter, which is one of its seasonally stronger quarters for sales and profitability. Sales in each region that the PC segment operates in were at or slightly better than expectations in the second quarter when measured in local currency.
  • Sales for CMC totaling $158.4 million decreased by 24 percent or $50.2 million compared to sales of $208.6 million in the prior year quarter. The decline was due to lower sales volumes for carbon pitch and carbon black feedstock and lower average sales prices for carbon black feedstock, phthalic anhydride, and naphthalene, which were driven by lower oil prices. Additionally, foreign currency reduced CMC sales by approximately $12.0 million. These decreases in sales were partially offset by $12.7 million of incremental revenues from the KJCC joint venture in China.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $46.0 million compared to $27.3 million in the second quarter of 2014 due mainly to incremental earnings from the Osmose acquisition, higher earnings from RUPS, and lower coal tar raw material costs, which collectively more than offset lower earnings from CMC driven by lower sales prices and volumes.
  • Items excluded from adjusted EBITDA for the quarter included $1.3 million of pre-tax charges related to impairment, restructuring and plant closure costs, and $0.8 million of LIFO expense. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS exclude a $5.0 million impact related to the items above.

For the company's 2015 guidance, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS exclude restructuring, impairment, and plant closure charges and LIFO charges, the forecasted amounts of which are not determinable, but may be significant. For that reason, the company is unable to provide GAAP earnings estimates at this time. In addition, 2015 GAAP results are subject to completion of the company's year-end accounting processes, which include the finalization of several potentially significant items that could affect these results. These items include, among others, required adjustments to the company's annual provision for income taxes. Final results could also be affected by various other factors that we are unaware of at this time.

Koppers believes that adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, 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.
