 A. M. Castle & Co. Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

Completed Sale of Total Plastics, Inc. Subsidiary

Completed Sale of Energy Assets and Subsequent Closure of Houston and Edmonton Facilities

OAK BROOK, Ill., May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A. M. Castle & Co. (NYSE:CAS) (the “Company” or “Castle”), a global distributor of specialty metal and supply chain solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

President and CEO Steve Scheinkman commented, “Since I joined Castle a year ago, our primary focus has been on restructuring our branch network costs and improving our capital structure. During the first quarter, we substantially completed the restructuring plan we announced in April 2015 within the projected timeline and on budget. At the same time, we completed the sale of our Total Plastics, Inc. (“TPI”) subsidiary, the sale of a vast majority of our energy-related inventory and the closure of our Houston and Edmonton facilities. The Company has utilized the proceeds from these sales to reduce its debt and improve its capital structure. We also negotiated separate exchanges to extend the maturity of substantially all of our Senior Secured Notes and Convertible Notes on terms that further improve our capital structure.”

Summary of First Quarter 2016 Accomplishments:

  • Completed sale of TPI for $55.1 million in cash, subject to final working capital adjustments.
  • Sold vast majority of energy-related inventory for net sales of $27.1 million.
  • Closed and sold all fixed assets related to the operations of Houston and Edmonton facilities, both of which have recently generated significant operating losses.
  • Refinanced more than 97% of existing Senior Secured Notes due December 2016 with New Senior Secured Notes due December 2018.
  • Agreed with holders to the exchange of more than 99% of the existing Convertible Notes due December 2017 for New Convertible Notes due December 2019, and received the requisite approval from the Company's stockholders for issuance of the underlying common stock. The New Convertible Notes provide a 30% discount in principal amount, a 1.75% reduction in coupon rate and the ability, in certain circumstances, for the Company to initiate conversion into equity.

Scheinkman further added, “While our network-level restructuring activities are behind us, we experienced some growing pains in our new facility in Janesville, Wisconsin which negatively impacted our transactional sales and operating expenses at that branch. We also incurred approximately $1.5 million of additional operating expenses during the quarter primarily as a result of the movement and repositioning of inventory within our newly structured branch network in order to better align the inventory at those branches with the customers they primarily serve. This process is now largely completed and we do not expect these costs to be recurring. Despite these temporary headwinds, our continuing business, which excludes the operations of our Houston and Edmonton facilities, achieved a quarter-over-quarter increase in tons sold of 8.5% and an improvement in overall gross material margin. With the goals of each of our branches now clearly defined, we are focused on continuing to improve our overall margin performance and fine-tuning our operating expenses on an individual branch basis while increasing sales through our commercial activities.”

Houston and Edmonton Facility Closures

In February 2016, the Company made the decision to close its Houston and Edmonton facilities, which primarily serviced the energy sector, and to sell the inventory and fixed assets to a third party rather than consolidate these assets with other Company facilities. With the sale of substantially all of the inventory and subsequent closure of these facilities, the Company has eliminated on a go forward basis the operating losses recently generated by these branches and the accompanying negative impact on gross material margin. Net sales attributable to the Houston and Edmonton operations, which will not continue with the closure of these facilities, were $33.0 million halfway through the first quarter 2016 (including the $27.1 million sale of all the inventory at those facilities), $9.1 million in the fourth quarter 2015 and $18.0 million in the first quarter 2015. The Company expects a 100 to 150 basis point improvement in gross material margin and annual operating cost savings of approximately $18 million to $21 million as a result of the closure of these facilities. The operating expenses of the Houston and Edmonton facilities were $3.5 million in the first quarter 2016, $6.1 million in the first quarter 2015 and $4.6 million in the fourth quarter 2015.

First Quarter 2016 Results

Net sales in the first quarter 2016 were $163.8 million, a decrease of $24.7 million, or 13.1%, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015. Net sales in the first quarter 2016 include $27.1 million as a result of the sale of substantially all of the Company's energy-related inventory at its Houston and Edmonton facilities. Excluding the $27.1 million sale, net sales in the first quarter decreased by $51.8 million, or 27.5%, compared to the first quarter 2015. The decrease in net sales was mainly attributable to a 27.6% decrease in tons sold per day to customers compared to the same period last year, coupled with a slight decrease in average selling prices.

Loss from continuing operations in the first quarter 2016 was $44.8 million, or a loss from continuing operations of $1.90 per diluted common share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $15.7 million, or a loss from continuing operations of $0.67 per diluted common share, in the prior year period. Adjusted non-GAAP loss from continuing operations for the first quarter 2016, which excludes restructuring activity, debt restructuring costs, and other items reconciled in the tables below, was $26.1 million compared to adjusted non-GAAP loss from continuing operations of $16.7 million in the first quarter 2015. Adjusted non-GAAP loss from continuing operations was $29.5 million in the fourth quarter 2015. Negative EBITDA from continuing operations in the first quarter 2016 was $30.4 million, compared to negative EBITDA from continuing operations of $6.6 million in the first quarter 2015 and $106.6 million in the fourth quarter 2015. Exclusive of restructuring activity, debt restructuring costs and other items reconciled in the tables below, the Company had negative adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $11.6 million in the first quarter 2016 compared with negative adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations of $6.2 million in the first quarter 2015 and $14.8 million in the fourth quarter 2015.

Total restructuring activity recorded during the first quarter 2016, including a $0.5 million charge reflected in cost of materials, resulted in expense of $12.2 million compared to expense from restructuring activity of $0.8 million in the prior year period. Restructuring activity in the first quarter 2016 consisted of additional charges from the Company's previously announced April 2015 restructuring plan as well as charges related to the closure and sale of assets at its Houston and Edmonton facilities. Restructuring charges from the Houston and Edmonton facility closures primarily were attributed to lease termination costs.

Executive Vice President and CFO, Pat Anderson, commented, “As evidenced by the recent closure of our Houston and Edmonton facilities, we continue to execute against our plans to streamline our core business and to lower our operating costs. The strategic actions that we have executed to-date are important steps as we work towards achieving positive EBITDA in 2016.”

Gross material margin, calculated as net sales less cost of materials divided by net sales, was 18.4% in the first quarter 2016 compared to 23.4% in the first quarter 2015. The gross material margin in the first quarter 2016 was negatively impacted by the $27.1 million sale of the inventory in the Houston and Edmonton facilities as well as a $0.5 million non-cash inventory charge related to restructuring activity in the first quarter 2016. Excluding these items, adjusted gross material margin in the first quarter 2016 was 22.3% compared to 23.4% in the first quarter 2015. Adjusted gross material margin in the fourth quarter 2015 was 21.1%, which excludes a $61.5 million non-cash charge for the write-down of inventory and purchase commitments at the Company's Houston and Edmonton facilities and a $3.3 million charge related to restructuring activity. The Company believes that the closure of its Houston and Edmonton facilities will have a favorable impact on gross material margin going forward.

Excluding restructuring expenses, operating expenses were $45.2 million in the first quarter 2016, compared to $50.5 million in the first quarter 2015. Operating expenses in the first quarter 2015 include a $5.6 million gain on the sale of facility. Operating expenses were $47.5 million in the fourth quarter 2015.

Net cash from operating activities of continuing operations was $3.5 million during first quarter 2016, compared to net cash used in operating activities of continuing operations of $4.5 million during the first quarter 2015. The cash flow from operating activities of continuing operations in the quarter was largely the result of the sale of inventory at the Houston and Edmonton facilities. Net cash from investing activities of $52.8 million during the first quarter 2016 is attributable to cash proceeds from the sale of TPI. The proceeds from the sale of TPI were used to pay down the Company's long-term debt, which, along with the $7.1 million payment of debt restructuring costs, resulted in net cash used in financing activities of $51.6 million during the quarter. The Company had $22.1 million of borrowings outstanding under its revolving credit facility at March 31, 2016, and $54.3 million of additional unrestricted borrowing capacity available under the terms of the revolving credit facility. The Company had $66.1 million in borrowings under the revolving credit facility at December 31, 2015. The Company’s net debt-to-capital ratio was 92.3% at March 31, 2016, compared to 84.1% at December 31, 2015. Total debt outstanding, net of unamortized discount, was $275.5 million at March 31, 2016 and $317.6 million at December 31, 2015. Refer to the "Total Debt" table below for details related to the Company’s outstanding debt obligations.

Scheinkman concluded, “We began the second quarter as a leaner, more focused A. M. Castle. By completing our network-level restructuring, taking important steps towards the completion of our refinancing activities, and completing the sale of TPI and substantially all of our energy-related assets in the first quarter of 2016, we entered the second quarter of 2016 with an unobstructed focus on our business. While we continue to further develop our commercial platform, we also remain committed to continuously improving the cost structure. We have already entered in long-term agreements with a number of top-tier customers, many of which are new customers, as well as extensions of existing business with add-on volumes. We believe that we are now positioned to take advantage of opportunities that will be available to us as market cycles begin to turn.”
