Allegheny Technologies Announces First Quarter 2011 Results07:40 EDT Wednesday, April 27, 2011 PITTSBURGH (Business Wire) -- Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: ATI) reported net income for the first quarter 2011 of $56.3 million, or $0.54 per share. Results included a special charge of $3.1 million, net of tax, related to the accelerated recognition of equity-based compensation expense due to previously announced executive retirements. In addition, first quarter 2011 results included a discrete tax charge of $2.7 million primarily related to foreign income taxes. Excluding these charges, net income was $62.1 million, or $0.59 per share, on sales of $1.23 billion. In the first quarter 2010, ATI reported net income of $18.2 million, or $0.18 per share, on sales of $899.4 million. Results for 2010 included a non-recurring tax charge of $5.3 million related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Excluding this non-recurring tax charge, net income was $23.5 million, or $0.24 per share. “We continue to see 2011 marking the resumption of strong secular growth in our key global markets. We are off to a good start,” said L. Patrick Hassey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In the first quarter 2011, sales increased 36% compared to the same period in 2010 and shipments for most of our products increased significantly.” Total titanium shipments, including Uniti joint venture conversion, increased nearly 25% to 11.5 million pounds. Shipments of titanium and titanium alloys increased 11% in our High Performance Metals segment and increased 52% to a record 4.7 million pounds in our Flat-Rolled Products segment. In our High Performance Metals segment, shipments of nickel-based alloys and specialty alloys increased 40%, while shipments of our exotic alloys increased 10%. In our Flat-Rolled Products segment, shipments of high-value products increased 10% and shipments of standard products increased 9%. “During the first quarter 2011, our key global markets, namely aerospace and defense, oil and gas/chemical process industry, electrical energy, and medical, represented 70% of ATI sales. Direct international sales were nearly 32% of sales,” Mr. Hassey said. “We continued to improve our cost structure with over $26 million in gross cost reductions in the first quarter. Our gross cost reduction goal for 2011 is $100 million. Our balance sheet remains strong. “First quarter 2011 segment operating profit increased nearly 85% to $162 million, or 13.2% of ATI sales. Operating profit improved across all three business segments. Results were impacted by idle facility and start-up costs of $9.8 million associated with our titanium sponge operations, which was $4 million higher than expected. Segment operating profit was also impacted by LIFO charges of $3.9 million, primarily due to higher titanium and tungsten raw material costs. The start-up costs relate mostly to our Rowley, UT premium-titanium sponge facility. The facility is now producing sponge at improved volume and yield, so we expect reduced start-up costs in the second quarter. We expect the Rowley facility to be at a 20 million pound annualized production rate during the second half 2011. “Our key global markets remain strong. High Performance Metals segment backlog at the end of the first quarter 2011 was over $742 million, and is approaching levels reached in early 2007 and 2008. In addition, several large project wins in the oil and gas/chemical process industry provide a solid backlog for 2011 in our Flat-Rolled Products segment. “Orders from the aerospace market continue to strengthen. We believe we are at the beginning of a significant aerospace up cycle. Major OEMs are telling their supply chains to get ready for production increases to unprecedented build rates by 2013 for both legacy and next-generation aircraft. With our expanded capacity and capabilities, ATI is ready to meet the expected ramp up of demand from the airframe and jet engine supply chains. “The oil and gas/chemical process industry market remains strong. At 23% of ATI sales, our sales to this market grew by 51% compared to the same period last year. ATI is seeing a step up in demand and has won supply agreements for major projects including CP titanium for the largest desalination plant ever built, nickel-based alloy plate for the largest sour gas pipeline ever built, and specialty sheet for a large subsea oil pipeline being built in Brazil. “We are closely watching the impact on the electrical energy market as Japan recovers and rebuilds. We expect global demand for grain-oriented electrical steel may begin to improve as the electrical distribution grid in the affected area is rebuilt. We believe Japan will rely more on natural gas power generation in the short-term, which could positively impact ATI's sales to the gas turbine market and to the markets for exploration, processing, and transportation of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas). In addition, while the Fukushima Daiichi power plant incident has put licensing and construction of new nuclear power plants on hold until safety can be evaluated, we expect continued good demand from refueling and maintenance, and we believe the Generation III+ reactor design will receive more consideration. The incident also highlighted the need for countries to reevaluate their policies on spent nuclear fuel storage and processing. Many designs for spent fuel casks and transportation canisters use significant amounts of the specialty metals made by ATI. “At 6% of first quarter 2011 sales, medical was again our fastest growing market. Sales to the medical market doubled compared to the first quarter 2010. Growth was driven by demand for titanium products used in biomedical applications, and demand for our products used in next-generation MRI devices and for expanded MRI sales into developing countries. “We expect to see higher base prices for most of our products going forward. In our Flat-Rolled Products segment two base-price increases have been announced for our nickel-based alloy and specialty alloy products and a base-price increase was announced for our standard stainless products. Base prices have also been improving for our High Performance Metals segment titanium alloy and nickel-based alloy and specialty alloys. In addition, base-prices are improving in our Engineered Products segment, particularly for our tungsten products and for our carbon steel alloy forgings. “We continue to expect 2011 revenue growth of 15% to 20% compared to 2010, and continue to expect segment operating profit to be approximately 15% of sales for the year. Strength in our key markets, improving shipments and improving base prices for most products, and our ongoing focus on cost reduction and operating execution gives us confidence that these goals can be achieved. “Our outlook does not include any impact from our pending acquisition of Ladish Co., Inc. The meeting of Ladish shareholders to consider the acquisition is scheduled for May 6, 2011. Assuming shareholder approval, the acquisition is expected to close shortly after the meeting. ATI expects to recognize non-recurring transaction costs of approximately $8 million, pretax, during the second quarter 2011. In addition, due to acquisition accounting we presently do not expect significant additional operating profit in the second quarter from sales attributable to Ladish.”         Three Months EndedMarch 31           2011     2010In Millions Sales $ 1,227.4     $ 899.4   Net income attributable to ATI before special charges 62.1 23.5   Special charges*   (5.8 )   (5.3)   Net income attributable to ATI $ 56.3 $ 18.2   Per Diluted Share   Net income attributable to ATI before special charges $ 0.59 $ 0.24   Special charges*   (0.05)   (0.06)   Net income attributable to ATI $ 0.54 $ 0.18   * Special charges include the 2011 accelerated recognition of equity-based compensation expense due to previously announced executive retirements and a discrete tax charge of $2.7 million primarily related to foreign income taxes, and the 2010 impact of tax law changes. First Quarter 2011 Financial ResultsSales for the first quarter 2011 increased 36.5% to $1.23 billion, compared to the first quarter 2010, primarily as a result of higher shipments across all business segments, higher raw material surcharges and increases in average base selling prices for many products. Compared to the first quarter 2010, sales increased 32% in the High Performance Metals segment, 38% in the Flat-Rolled Products segment and 46% in the Engineered Products segment. Direct international sales were 31.8% of total sales. Compared to the fourth quarter 2010, total sales were 18.3% higher with increases of 14% in the High Performance Metals segment, 21% in the Flat-Rolled Products segment and 16% in the Engineered Products segments. Total titanium shipments, including Uniti conversion, increased to 11.5 million pounds, or 32% compared to the fourth quarter 2010. First quarter 2011 segment operating profit increased to $162.4 million, or 13.2% of sales, compared to $88.2 million, or 9.8% of sales, for the comparable 2010 period. While operating profit improved across all three business segments, results for the first quarter 2011 were impacted by idle facility and start-up costs associated with our titanium sponge operations of $9.8 million, or 0.8% of sales, in the High Performance Metals segment. In addition, the first quarter 2011 included a LIFO inventory valuation reserve charge of $3.9 million due primarily to higher titanium and tungsten raw material costs. There was no change in our LIFO inventory valuation reserve in the first quarter 2010. Net income attributable to ATI for the first quarter 2011 was $56.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to $18.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the first quarter 2010. Results for 2011 included a charge of $3.1 million, net of tax, related to the accelerated recognition of equity-based compensation expense due to previously announced executive retirements. In addition, first quarter 2011 results included a discrete tax charge of $2.7 million primarily related to foreign income taxes. Excluding these charges, net income was $62.1 million, or $0.59 per share. Results for 2010 included a non-recurring tax charge of $5.3 million, or $0.06 per share, related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Excluding this special tax charge, results for the first quarter 2010 were net income of $23.5 million, or $0.24 per share. Cash flowused in operations for 2011 was $50 million. An investment of $245.9 million in managed working capital, due to a significant increase in the level of business activity and higher raw material costs, offset increased profitability. Cash on hand at the end of the first quarter 2011 was $816.3 million, which includes the proceeds from the January 2011 issuance of $500 million of 5.95% Notes due 2021. During the second quarter 2011, we are anticipating utilizing approximately $395 million of cash on hand to fund the cash portion of the merger consideration for the previously announced acquisition of Ladish and to pay related fees and expenses. Gross cost reductions, before the effects of inflation, totaled $26.3 million Company-wide in the first quarter 2011. High Performance Metals SegmentMarket Conditions Demand for our titanium and titanium alloys and our nickel-based and specialty alloys improved compared to the fourth quarter 2010 as demand continued to strengthen from aerospace (jet engine and airframe), oil and gas, medical, and electrical energy customers. Shipments of our titanium alloys, and nickel-based alloys and specialty alloys increased 18% and 13%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter 2010 while shipments of our exotic alloys were essentially flat. Average selling prices increased 3% for titanium and titanium alloys and 5% for nickel-based and specialty alloys primarily due to higher raw material indices and improving base prices. Average selling prices for exotic alloys decreased 4% primarily due to mix. First quarter 2011 compared to first quarter 2010 Sales were $399.4 million, 32% higher than the first quarter 2010. Shipments increased 11% for titanium and titanium alloys and 40% for nickel-based and specialty alloys primarily due to higher demand from the commercial aerospace market. Shipments of exotic alloys increased 10% primarily due to improved demand from medical and other superconductivity applications. Average selling prices increased 13% for titanium and titanium alloys and 10% for nickel-based and specialty alloys primarily due to higher raw material indices and improving base prices. Average selling prices for exotic alloys increased 1%. Segment operating profit increased to $85.6 million, or 21.4% of sales, compared to $55.0 million, or 18.2% of sales, for the first quarter 2010. The increase in operating profit primarily resulted from higher shipment volumes, improved product pricing, and the benefits of gross cost reductions. First quarter 2011 operating profit was impacted by $9.8 million of idle facility and start-up costs involving the titanium sponge operations. The first quarter 2010 included $9.9 million of idle facility, workforce reduction, and start-up costs. In addition, first quarter 2011 segment operating profit included a LIFO inventory valuation reserve charge of $4.2 million. There was no change in our LIFO inventory valuation reserve in the first quarter 2010. Results benefited from $12 million of gross cost reductions in the first quarter 2011. Flat-Rolled Products SegmentMarket Conditions Demand improved from the oil and gas/chemical process industry and aerospace markets. Compared to the fourth quarter 2010, demand increased 20% for standard stainless products and 4% for high-value products, which includes titanium, nickel-based alloys, Precision Rolled Strip® products and grain-oriented electrical steel. Direct international sales represented 31% of total segment sales for the first quarter 2011. First quarter Flat-Rolled Products segment titanium shipments, including Uniti joint venture conversion, were a record 4.7 million pounds, a 57% increase compared to the fourth quarter 2010. Average selling prices for all products increased 10% compared to the fourth quarter 2010 primarily due to raw material surcharges. During the first quarter 2011, the Company announced increases in base prices for standard stainless and nickel alloy products. The full impact of these price increases will primarily be realized beginning in the second quarter 2011. First quarter 2011 compared to first quarter 2010 Sales increased to $710.6 million, 37.6% higher than the first quarter 2010, primarily due to higher shipments and raw material surcharges, and improved base-selling prices for certain products. Shipments of high-value products increased 10% and standard stainless products (sheet and plate) increased 9%. Average transaction prices for all products, which include surcharges, were 26% higher due to increased raw material surcharges for all products and improved base prices for most high value products. Segment operating profit improved to $63.4 million, or 8.9% of sales, compared to $31.4 million, or 6.1% of sales, for the first quarter 2010 due primarily to increased shipments and higher base prices for certain products plus a better matching of surcharges with raw material costs. The first quarter 2011 included a LIFO inventory valuation reserve benefit of $2.5 million. There was no change in our LIFO inventory valuation reserve in the first quarter 2010. Results benefited from $10.3 million in gross cost reductions in the first quarter 2011. Engineered Products SegmentMarket Conditions Compared to the fourth quarter 2010, demand improved from the oil and gas, cutting tools, transportation, aerospace, electrical energy, and automotive markets. First quarter 2011 compared to first quarter 2010 Sales increased to $117.4 million, an increase of 45.8% compared to the first quarter 2010, primarily as a result of the improved demand and higher prices for tungsten-based and carbon alloy steel forging products. Segment operating profit was $13.4 million for the first quarter 2011, compared to $1.8 million in the first quarter 2010. The increase in segment operating profit resulted from improved demand and higher prices for tungsten-based and carbon alloy forging products, combined with the benefits from gross cost reductions. Results for the first quarter 2011 included a LIFO inventory valuation reserve charge of $2.2 million. There was no change in our LIFO inventory valuation reserve in the first quarter 2010. Results benefited from $4.0 million of gross cost reductions in the first quarter 2011. Other Expenses Corporate expenses for the first quarter 2011 were $25.8 million, compared to $12.3 million in the year-ago period. The increase in corporate expenses was primarily related to accelerated recognition of equity-based compensation expense due to previously announced executive retirements, higher incentive compensation expenses associated with long-term performance plans, costs related to the planned acquisition of Ladish, and corporate-funded research and development costs. Interest expense, net of interest income, was $23.0 million, compared to $14.6 million in the first quarter 2010. The increase in interest expense was primarily due to the January 7, 2011 issuance of $500 million of 5.95% Notes due 2021, and lower interest expense capitalized on strategic projects due to project completions. Capitalized interest on major strategic capital projects reduced interest expense by $2.6 million for the first quarter 2011 compared to $4.0 million for the comparable 2010 period. Other expenses, which include expenses related to closed operations, for the first quarter 2011 were $0.5 million, compared to $5.8 million in the year-ago period. The decrease was primarily related to lower expenses associated with closed operations and foreign exchange gains. Retirement Benefit Expense Retirement benefit expense, which includes pension expense and other postretirement expense, decreased to $19.3 million in the first quarter 2011, compared to $22.5 million in the first quarter 2010. This decrease was primarily due to higher than expected returns on pension plan assets in 2010 and the benefits resulting from our voluntary pension contributions made over the last several years. For the first quarter 2011, retirement benefit expense of $13.8 million was included in cost of sales and $5.5 million was included in selling and administrative expenses. For the first quarter 2010, the amount of retirement benefit expense included in cost of sales was $15.8 million, and the amount included in selling and administrative expenses was $6.7 million. Income Taxes The first quarter 2011 provision for income taxes was $35.1 million, or 37.4% of income before tax, compared to the 2010 provision for income taxes of $13.2 million, or 40% of income before tax. The first quarter 2011 included discrete tax charges of $2.7 million primarily related to foreign income taxes. Excluding these items, the effective tax rate was 34.5%. The first quarter 2010 included a non-recurring tax charge of $5.3 million associated with the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The change in law resulted in a reduction of the value of the Company's deferred tax asset related to the subsidy. This 2010 first quarter tax charge was partially offset by discrete net tax benefits of $3.7 million associated with adjustment of taxes paid in prior years and other changes. Cash Flow, Working Capital and Debt Cash on hand was $816.3 million at March 31, 2011, an increase of $384 million from year-end 2010. This increase was primarily due to the January 2011 $500 million debt issuance. Cash flow used in operations for the 2011 first quarter was $50.3 million. An investment of $245.9 million in managed working capital, primarily due to improving business activity and higher raw material costs, offset increased profitability. The $245.9 million growth in managed working capital resulted from a $147.5 million increase in accounts receivable and a $210.6 million increase in inventory, partially offset by a $112.2 million increase in accounts payable. At March 31, 2011, managed working capital was 32.1% of annualized sales, compared to 34.4% of annualized sales at year-end 2010. We define managed working capital as accounts receivable plus gross inventories less accounts payable. Cash used in investing activities was $41.7 million in the first quarter 2011 and consisted primarily of capital expenditures. Cash provided by financing activities was $476.0 million in the first quarter 2011. The first quarter included $495.0 million in net proceeds from the issuance of $500 million of 5.95% Notes due January 2021, and dividend payments of $17.6 million and $2.0 million of net debt retirements. Net debt as a percentage of total capitalization was 26.1% at the end of the first quarter 2011 compared to 23.6% at the end of 2010. Total debt to total capital was 42.5% at March 31, 2011, compared to 34.3% at the end of 2010. There were no borrowings outstanding under ATI's $400 million unsecured domestic borrowing facility, although a portion of the letters of credit capacity was utilized. Pending Acquisition of Ladish Closing of the acquisition of Ladish is pending approval by Ladish shareholders at a shareholders meeting scheduled to be held on May 6, 2011. Merger consideration is comprised of $389 million in cash and approximately 7.4 million shares of ATI common stock. With closing of the acquisition, ATI will recognize non-recurring transaction costs of approximately $8 million, pretax.
