  • EBITDA4 of USD390.0 million in the fourth quarter 2013, 9% higher than EBITDA in the third quarter 2013 as a result of higher EBITDA per ton partially offset by seasonally lower steel shipments.
  • Earnings per American Depositary Share (ADS)5 of USD0.64 in the fourth quarter 2013
  • Capital expenditures of USD158.2 million in the fourth quarter 2013, down from USD217.5 million in the third quarter 2013.
  • Net debt position of USD1.5 billion at the end of December 2013, down from USD1.6 billion at the end of September 2013.

Ternium's operating income in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD295.6 million, USD29.5 million higher than in the third quarter 2013 as a result of a higher operating margin partially offset by seasonally lower steel shipments. Operating margin in the fourth quarter 2013 increased sequentially mainly due to higher steel revenue per ton in Mexico and Other Markets and a slight reduction in operating cost per ton6 resulting principally from a lower cost of purchased slabs and raw materials.

Compared to the fourth quarter 2012, the company's operating income in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD172.1 million higher due to improved operating margin and steel shipments. The year-over-year increase in operating margin was mainly due to a lower operating cost per ton principally from a lower cost of purchased slabs and raw materials. In addition, operating income in the fourth quarter 2012 reflected the decreased productivity caused by the stoppage of a blast furnace in Argentina.

Net income was USD171.1 million in the fourth quarter 2013, USD35.0 million higher than net income in the third quarter 2013 mainly due to the above mentioned higher operating income. Relative to the prior-year period, net income in the fourth quarter 2013 increased by USD402.3 million mainly due to the above mentioned higher operating income and a USD298.0 million better result related to the investment in Usiminas, which in the fourth quarter 2012 included a USD275.3 million impairment charge.

  • EBITDA7 of USD1.5 billion in 2013, 15% higher than EBITDA in 2012 as a result of higher EBITDA per ton and steel shipments.
  • Earnings per ADS8 of USD2.32 in 2013.
  • Capital expenditures of USD883.3 million in 2013, down from USD1.0 billion in 2012.

Operating income in 2013 was USD1.1 billion, 21% higher than in 2012 mainly due to higher operating margin and a 220,000 ton increase in steel shipments, as well as higher iron ore shipments to third parties as a result of the proportional consolidation in 2013 of Peña Colorada's mining operations. Operating margin in 2013 increased principally due to lower operating cost per ton, which resulted mainly from a lower cost of purchased slabs and raw materials, partially offset by lower steel revenue per ton in Mexico and Other Markets.

Net income in 2013 was USD592.9 million, USD402.0 million higher than net income in 2012, mainly due to a USD328.6 million better result related to the investment in Usiminas, which in 2012 included a USD275.3 million impairment charge, and a USD188.8 million higher operating income, partially offset by higher net financial and income tax expenses.

Mexican Power Plant Investment

Following the execution of an August 2013 memorandum of understanding for the construction and operation of a natural gas-fired combined cycle electric power plant in the Pesquería area of the State of Nuevo León, Mexico, as of February 2014, Ternium, Tenaris and Tecpetrol International S.A. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of San Faustin S.A., the controlling shareholder of both Ternium and Tenaris) have completed their initial investments in Techgen, S.A. de C.V., a Mexican project company owned 48% by Ternium, 30% by Tecpetrol and 22% by Tenaris. Tenaris and Ternium have also agreed to enter into power supply and transportation agreements with Techgen, pursuant to which Ternium and Tenaris will contract 78% and 22%, respectively, of Techgen's power capacity of between 850 and 900 megawatts.

Annual Dividend Proposal

Ternium's board of directors proposed that an annual dividend of USD0.075 per share (USD0.75 per ADS), or approximately USD150.4 million in the aggregate, be approved at the company's annual general shareholders' meeting, which is scheduled to be held on May 7, 2014. If the annual dividend is approved at the shareholders' meeting, it will be paid on May 16, 2014, with record-date of May 13, 2014.

Outlook

Ternium expects steel shipments to increase sequentially in the first quarter 2014, with an improvement in sales to industrial customers in Mexico partially offset by seasonally weaker volumes in Argentina. The company anticipates a relatively stable operating income in the first quarter 2014 compared to the fourth quarter 2013, as a result of the above mentioned increase in shipments being offset by a slightly lower operating margin, with a decrease in revenue per ton and stable operating cost per ton.

Analysis of Fourth Quarter 2013 Results

Net income attributable to Ternium's equity holders in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD125.6 million, compared to a net loss of USD213.8 million in the fourth quarter 2012. Including non-controlling interest, net income for the fourth quarter 2013 was USD171.1 million, USD402.3 million higher in comparison with the fourth quarter 2012. Earnings per ADS in the fourth quarter 2013 were USD0.64 compared to losses per ADS of USD1.09 in the fourth quarter 2012.

Net sales in the fourth quarter 2013 were USD2.1 billion, 2% higher than net sales in the fourth quarter 2012, mainly as a result of higher steel products net sales in Southern Region and Mexico, partially offset by lower steel products net sales in Other Markets. The following table shows Ternium's total consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter 2013 and 2012:

Cost of sales was USD1.6 billion in the fourth quarter 2013, a decrease of USD120.7 million compared to the fourth quarter 2012. This was principally due to a USD152.1 million, or 11%, decrease in raw material and consumables used, mainly reflecting a decrease in raw material and purchased slabs costs, partially offset by a 3% increase in shipment volumes and higher energy costs; and a USD31.4 million increase in other costs, including a USD24.5 million increase in labor cost and a USD14.5 million increase in maintenance expenses.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses in the fourth quarter 2013 were USD210.4 million, or 9.9% of net sales, an increase of USD13.5 million compared to the fourth quarter 2012, mainly due to higher taxes and contributions (other than income tax) and labor expenses, partially offset by lower services expenses.

Operating income in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD295.6 million, or 14.0% of net sales, compared to operating income of USD123.4 million, or 6.0% of net sales, in the fourth quarter 2012. The following table shows Ternium's operating income by segment for the fourth quarter 2013 and the fourth quarter 2012:

Operating cost decreased 5% due to a 7% decrease in operating cost per ton, partially offset by the above mentioned 3% increase in shipment volumes. The decrease in operating cost per ton was mainly due to lower raw material and purchased slabs costs, partially offset by an increase in energy costs, maintenance expenses and labor cost.

Mining reporting segment

Net Sales of mining products in the fourth quarter 2013 were 134% higher than in the fourth quarter 2012. Shipments were 994,000 tons, 100% higher than in the fourth quarter 2012, and revenue per ton was USD111. The year-over-year differences were mainly due to the proportional consolidation of Peña Colorada.

Shipments (thousand tons)   994.1   496.8   100 %
Revenue per ton (USD/ton)   111   95   17 %
               

The mining segment's operating income was USD38.7 million in the fourth quarter 2013, an increase of USD17.1 million compared to the fourth quarter 2012 mainly as a result of the proportional consolidation of Peña Colorada's mining operations in the fourth quarter 2013.

EBITDA in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD390.0 million, or 18.4% of net sales, compared to USD227.6 million, or 11.0% of net sales, in the fourth quarter 2012.

Net financial results were a USD30.4 million loss in the fourth quarter 2013, compared to a USD27.4 million loss in the fourth quarter 2012.

During the fourth quarter 2013, Ternium's net interest results totaled a loss of USD22.6 million, a USD5.1 million better result than in the fourth quarter 2012, reflecting lower indebtedness and weighted average interest rates.

Equity in results of non-consolidated companies was a loss of USD4.5 million in the fourth quarter 2013, compared to a loss of USD295.8 million in the fourth quarter 2012 that included a write-down of Ternium's investment in Usiminas of USD275.3 million.

The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter 2012 was impacted by losses stemming from the investment in Usiminas (including the above mentioned write-down) that reduced Ternium's taxable income in that quarter.

Net gain attributable to non-controlling interest in the fourth quarter 2013 was USD45.5 million, compared to a net loss of USD17.4 million in the same period in 2012, mainly due to higher result attributable to non-controlling interest in Siderar.

Income tax expense in 2013 included a deferred income tax charge of USD24.0 million related to the introduction of a new withholding tax on dividend distributions in Argentina, among other charges. The effective tax rate for 2012 was impacted by losses stemming from the investment in Usiminas (including the above mentioned write-down) that were recorded in 2012 and reduced Ternium's taxable income in that year. 

Net income attributable to non-controlling interest in 2013 was USD137.5 million, compared to USD48.9 million in 2012, mainly due to a higher result attributable to non-controlling interest in Siderar.

Cash Flow and Liquidity
