Comment

Gregory A. Pratt, Carpenter’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, stated: “A short time ago, we issued a press release announcing actions to improve profitability, cut costs and strengthen operations. Today, as we report financial results of the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, our message remains consistent. Our operating results for this quarter reflect an improving Specialty Alloys Operations (SAO) product sales mix that was more than offset by the unfavorable impacts of operating cost increases, the current weakness in oil and gas markets, and unfavorable cost absorption as a result of reducing inventory.

“We want to reiterate our message regarding Carpenter’s many actions aimed at improving operating performance and driving long-term growth and stockholder value. First, we have consistently said the Company would begin generating positive free cash flow in the second half of fiscal year 2015, and we generated $87 million of free cash flow in the third quarter. We also stated that we are committed to reducing inventory, and our free cash flow results for the quarter reflect the impact of reducing inventory by $44 million. We said we would reduce capital spending once the Athens project was complete, and our capital expenditures for the quarter reflect our lowest quarterly capital expenditures in four years. Lastly, we said we would use the newly generated free cash flow to buy back shares under our share repurchase program. In the third quarter, we purchased $50 million of shares, in addition to the $10 million we purchased in the second quarter. Furthermore, we purchased $60 million of shares in the month of April.

“Clearly we have additional work ahead of us as we continue to initiate actions we believe are necessary to stem the tide of higher operating costs. To that end, we have initiated a restructuring plan that is expected to yield annual overhead savings of $30 million. We expect to realize a portion of this savings in our upcoming fourth quarter. Our Business Management Office, or BMO, is working to identify and execute opportunities to improve cost performance and profit margin, as well as to further reduce inventory. Lastly, we are making continued progress in obtaining the site and customer-specific product qualifications for our newly constructed Athens facility, in order to further actualize its capabilities.”

Net Sales and Operating Income

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $570.6 million, and net sales excluding surcharge were $462.9 million, a decrease of $4.3 million (or 1 percent) from the same quarter last year, on 11 percent lower volume.

Operating income was $4.8 million, a decrease of $44.7 million from the third quarter of the prior year. Operating income—excluding pension earnings, interest and deferrals (EID) and restructuring charges and special items—was $35.1 million, a decrease of $28.4 million (or 45 percent) from the third quarter of the prior year. These results reflect higher SAO operating costs, additional depreciation expenses of the Athens facility, the unfavorable impacts of inventory reduction initiatives, and reduced demand for oil and gas products from the PEP segment, which were all partially offset by a stronger mix of products within the SAO segment.

Restructuring Charges and Special Items

The third quarter results include restructuring charges and special items of $0.35 per diluted share, consisting of employee termination costs, costs involved with exiting the ultra-fine grain material development program, facility closure expenses, and consulting fees related to the establishment of the Business Management Office (BMO) and strategic business review.

Cash Flow

Cash flow from operations was $120.9 million, which included a $43.8 million reduction in inventory, a $20.1 million decrease in other working capital and $1.5 million of pension contributions. This compares to a cash flow from operations of $81.0 million in the prior year’s third quarter, which included a $1.3 million increase in inventory, a $4.5 million decrease in other working capital and $1.5 million of pension contributions. Free cash flow in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $86.7 million, compared to negative $22.2 million in the same quarter last year. Capital spending in the third quarter, which included $6.6 million related to the construction of the Athens facility, was $24.8 million, compared to $93.6 million in the prior year’s third quarter, which included $74.2 million related to Athens.

Total liquidity, including cash and available revolver balance, was $521 million at the end of the third quarter. This consisted of $29 million of cash and $492 million of available revolver.

Aerospace and Defense

  • Strong sequential and year-over-year sales growth for engine materials as supply chain demand normalizes
  • Fastener demand up year-over-year, driven primarily by high nickel content products
  • Structural and distribution activity reflects increased volume and improved mix on a sequential basis, with lower volume year-over-year

Energy

  • North American quarterly average directional rig count was down 25 percent sequentially and 20 percent year-over-year
  • The dramatic drop in oil prices and low drilling activity caused a significant decrease in PEP sales
  • Materials for power generation applications were up sequentially but down year-over-year due to highly variable demand patterns

Medical

  • Buying patterns from OEMs have stabilized
  • The pricing environment remains extremely competitive

Transportation

  • Sales were up year-over-year based on strong volume growth and an improved mix of materials supporting advancements in engine technologies
  • North American light vehicle sales show continued positive growth, up 6 percent year-over-year
  • Low fuel prices and lower interest rates are driving sales for vehicle platforms with higher Carpenter material content

Industrial and Consumer

The Company has two reportable segments, Specialty Alloys Operations (“SAO”) and Performance Engineered Products (“PEP”).
 
The SAO segment is comprised of Carpenter's major premium alloy and stainless steel manufacturing operations. This includes operations performed at mills primarily in Reading and Latrobe and surrounding areas in Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Alabama.
 
The PEP segment is comprised of the Company’s differentiated operations. This segment includes the Dynamet titanium business, the Carpenter Powder Products business, the Amega West business, the Specialty Steel Supply business, the Latrobe Special Metals Distribution business and Aceros Fortuna based in Mexico. The businesses in the PEP segment are managed with an entrepreneurial structure to promote flexibility and agility to quickly respond to market dynamics. It is our belief this model will ultimately drive overall revenue and profit growth. The pounds sold data above for the PEP segment includes only the Dynamet and CPP businesses.
 
The service cost component of net pension expense, which represents the estimated cost of future pension liabilities earned associated with active employees, is included in the operating results of the business segments. The residual net pension expense, or pension earnings, interest and deferrals (pension EID), is comprised of the expected return on plan assets, interest costs on the projected benefit obligations of the plans, and amortization of actuarial gains and losses and prior service costs and is included under the heading "Pension earnings, interest and deferrals".
 
* Pounds sold exclude sales associated with the distribution businesses.
