Bernhard Rumbold, Interim President and CEO of Opta Minerals, noted, "The Company continues with restructuring the business and we have seen improvements from our efforts. We are continuing to work at closing unprofitable locations, reducing costs, simplifying operations and improving the balance sheet by reducing inventory thereby improving liquidity. We are striving to have our restructuring work substantially complete by the end of the year.

Markets remain soft but slightly better than the first half of the year. We will continue to invest in people and capital within Steel and Magnesium and within segments of Industrial Minerals, such as garnet, where we believe we have a competitive advantage and can earn superior returns.

We continue to pursue strategic alternatives for the Company. We will be holding off on the recruitment of a permanent CEO until this matter is closed."

Operational and Financial Highlights:

  • On a consolidated basis revenues for the quarter have fallen 19.8% from $35.9 million to $28.8 million. On a year to date basis revenues have fallen 16.8% from $105.7 million to $87.9 million. Excluding the effects of exchange rate movements in the Canadian dollar and Euro against the U.S. dollar, revenues have fallen in the quarter and year to date 8.4% and 7.4%, respectively. The balance of the shortfall is primarily due to lower volumes sold to existing customers due to a general market slowdown in the steel industry and in other markets we serve. Excluding the current quarter foreign exchange gain and the comparative prior year quarter foreign exchange loss, adjusted EBIT would be similar.
  • Third quarter revenue in the Steel and Magnesium segment decreased 15.5% from the comparable quarter in 2014. On a year to date basis revenues have decreased 11.3% over the comparable period in 2014. Excluding the effects of exchange rate movements, revenues have fallen 9.2% and 6.9% versus the previous quarter and year to date, respectively. The Steel and Magnesium segment continues to be impacted by a slow down in the steel industry affecting our throughput to customers.
  • The Industrial Minerals segment revenue decreased approximately 26.2% in the quarter and 24.2% year to date. The decline is partially due to restructuring as we eliminate locations and product lines that do not provide an adequate return and partially due to the exchange rate movements noted earlier. The Company remains focused on its restructuring efforts along with focused growth in key areas of the business such as garnet.
  • Gross profit includes charges of approximately $422 in the quarter and $1.2 million year to date for inventory reserves and expected remediation costs related to the closure of facilities and the liquidation of certain inventories. Excluding these costs, gross margins are 16.3% for the quarter and 14.7% for the year to date, respectively. Margins have also been impacted by lower sales prices to liquidate inventory and lower volumes affecting plant utilization.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SGA) were $3,308 or 11.5% as a percent of revenues, compared to $4,132 or 11.5% of revenues in the prior year quarter. On a year to date basis SGA is $11,454 or 13.0% of revenues compared to $12,738 or 12.1% for the comparable period in 2014. Year to date SGA includes severance and other costs related to restructuring as well as other one time items totaling approximately $1.1 million. Excluding these items, SGA is 11.7% for the year. SGA is impacted by the strengthening US dollar with corporate costs primarily in Canadian dollars and cost reductions which have occurred during the year. The Company is targeting 10% SGA as a percent of revenues.
  • Results include non-cash foreign exchange gains of $991 in the current quarter compared to foreign exchange losses of $416 in the prior year comparative quarter. Foreign exchange gains were $526 on a year to date basis as compared to $781 in losses in the previous year. These were driven by fluctuations in the US dollar against both the Canadian dollar and Euro.
  • Working capital, excluding the reclassification of long-term borrowings of $23.5 million, at September 30, 2015 amounted to $17.8 million and total assets were $97.2 million, as compared to $21.8 million and $117.7 million, respectively, at December 31, 2014. Working capital is considerably lower than December 31, 2014 driven by the Company's efforts to significantly lower inventories.
  • Long-term borrowings of $23.5 million have been reclassified to current borrowings as a result of the default of certain financial covenants stipulated under the Company's credit agreement. Subsequent to September 30, 2015, the Company obtained a waiver in respect of the covenant default from the syndicate of banks. As consideration for the waiver the Company is to comply with certain additional financial covenants. The syndicate of banks again extended the maturity date of the revolving credit facility from October 2, 2015 to November 30, 2015.
  • The Company will require the continued support from its current financial lenders and, effective December 1, 2015, Opta Minerals will require a further extension of its revolving term credit facility and an additional waiver of financial covenants, if breached, or an alternative source of financing. Failure to meet financial covenants or repay the revolving credit facility on maturity would constitute an event of default under the credit agreement, unless the lenders agree to a waiver or further amendment. The Company believes that it will comply with the additional financial covenants and that an extension is likely, but there can be no assurance that it will be provided or that alternative sources of financing on terms favourable to the Company could be obtained. The limited extension of the revolving term credit facility to November 30, 2015 has required the inclusion of additional disclosure in the Company's interim condensed consolidated financial statements as at and for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2015.
  • The debt to equity ratio at September 30, 2015 was 0.89 to 1.00, and at December 31, 2014 was 1.00 to 1.00.

Notes
1 The term "EBITDA" refers to earnings before deducting finance expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. The Company believes that EBITDA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration non-cash asset depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under International Finance Reporting Standards (IFRS), and accordingly, investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or loss determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. The Company's method of calculating EBITDA may differ from other issuers and accordingly, EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
2 The term "EBIT" refers to earnings before income taxes and finance expense. The Company believes that EBIT is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed or taxed. EBIT is a non-IFRS earnings measure that does not have standardized measures prescribed by IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other publicly traded companies.
