Headwaters Incorporated Announces Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 201106:00 EDT Tuesday, November 01, 2011 SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (Business Wire) -- HEADWATERS INCORPORATED (NYSE: HW), a building products company dedicated to improving lives through innovative advancements in construction materials, today announced results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2011. CEO Commentary "Two major accomplishments stand out in Fiscal 2011. First, we successfully refinanced our senior debt, extending the maturity to 2019, reducing the interest rate from 11.375% to just 7.625%, lowering our cash interest expense and increasing free cash flow. The refinancing greatly reduced Headwaters' financial risk and positions us to focus on reduction of our subordinated debt," said Kirk A. Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Headwaters. "In that regard, we paid down $24.4 million of our high coupon subordinated debt. In 2012, we expect to further reduce our debt through improved cash flow and with the proceeds from our anticipated sale of non-core assets. "Second, we restructured multiple operations to improve efficiency and increase free cash flow and earnings. The restructuring activities are particularly beneficial because we addressed increased costs from raw materials, transportation, and other production costs and put Headwaters in a position to improve 2012 margins in spite of 2011 cost increases. We remain committed to our mission of providing innovative building materials to our customers and to carefully managing our business and our capital structure to deliver improved profitability to our shareholders." Discontinued Operations and Restructuring Headwaters is committed to selling its coal cleaning facilities and accordingly, we have presented the coal cleaning business as a discontinued operation in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The analysis of fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 results provided herein are related to continuing operations, except as noted. In addition to reporting its coal cleaning business as a discontinued operation, Headwaters recorded approximately $4.7 million of cash restructuring costs in the quarter ended September 30, 2011, and approximately $7.4 million of cash restructuring costs in the year ended September 30, 2011, as a result of actions taken to lower operating costs and improve operational efficiency. Total restructuring costs were $11.7 million and $17.9 million for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011, respectively. These charges consisted of workforce reductions and related severance expenses, facility closures and consolidations, and certain asset impairments and write-downs. Headwaters anticipates that the restructuring activities will result in an annualized cash benefit of approximately $14 million, of which approximately 65% will be realized in fiscal 2012. The following analyses of fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 exclude the restructuring charges as well as the discontinued coal cleaning operations. Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2011 Summary Headwaters' fourth quarter 2011 revenue from continuing operations of $178.1 million increased from $177.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations in the September 2011 quarter was $32.2 million, an increase from $31.0 million in the September 2010 quarter. Gross profit from continuing operations was $48.9 million in the September 2011 quarter, compared to $52.9 million in the September 2010 quarter, and operating income in the September 2011 quarter increased to $18.8 million, compared to $17.1 million in the September 2010 quarter. Income from continuing operations was $8.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the September 2011 quarter, compared to net income from continuing operations of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the September 2010 quarter. The improvement in income was principally related to a $4.9 million reduction in SG&A and a $6.2 million reduction in interest expense compared to the prior year. Net loss including discontinued operations and the restructuring charge was $(46.7) million, or $(0.77) per diluted share, for the September 2011 quarter, compared to a net loss of $(24.1) million, or $(0.40) per diluted share for the September 2010 quarter. Fiscal Year 2011 Summary Total revenue from continuing operations was $592.0 million for fiscal year 2011, down 1% from $598.2 million for fiscal year 2010. Gross profit from continuing operations decreased 13% to $149.9 million in fiscal 2011 from $171.8 million in fiscal 2010. Operating income from continuing operations for fiscal 2011, adjusted for the second quarter Boynton litigation expense of $15.0 million and the restructuring charges described above was $24.8 million, compared to operating income of $33.9 million for fiscal 2010. Fiscal 2011 loss from continuing operations increased to $(133.9) million, or $(2.21) per diluted share, from $(21.1) million, or $(0.35) per diluted share for fiscal 2010, primarily due to the debt refinancing completed in the March 2011 quarter. Fiscal 2011 net loss including discontinued operations increased to $(229.9) million, or $(3.80) per diluted share from $(49.5) million, or $(0.83) per diluted share for fiscal 2010. Fiscal 2011 Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations decreased to $82.4 million, from $94.2 million for fiscal 2010, primarily because of increased material, transportation, and production costs. Results for fiscal year 2011 were significantly impacted by the non-routine charges incurred in the March 2011 quarter as well as the restructuring charges incurred in the September 2011 quarter as described above. Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2011 Quarter Business Segment PerformanceBusiness Segment           Revenue           AdjustedEBITDA           Adjusted EBITDAMargin Light Building Products $90.0 million           $14.4 million           16.0 % Heavy Construction Materials $82.6 million           $19.2 million           23.2 % Energy Technology $5.5 million           $0.2 million           3.6 %                     Light Building Products Segment Headwaters' light building products segment is a national brand leader in innovative building products through superior design, manufacturing and channel distribution. The segment brands and brings to market a wide variety of building products, including vinyl siding accessories and manufactured architectural stone. Our regional Texas block and brick business grew sales by over 12% in the year and overcame some of the weakness in other end markets. Revenues from Headwaters' light building products segment increased $0.7 million, or 1%, to $90.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to $89.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. While we have been able to maintain pricing in our architectural stone category, revenues declined approximately 7% due to the ongoing weakness in the residential housing market, offsetting the growth experienced in our Texas block and brick business. Segment gross margins declined to 26% in the September 2011 quarter, from 29% in the September 2010 quarter, primarily due to increases in transportation, materials, and production costs. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $14.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $16.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, primarily due to the same increased costs. Most of Headwaters' fourth quarter restructuring activities occurred in the light building products segment, where Adjusted EBITDA margins declined to 16.0% in the September 2011 quarter from 18.6% in the September 2010 quarter. The restructuring activities were undertaken to address reduced margins caused by increased costs, and we expect that 2012 margins will recover from 2011 levels. Heavy Construction Materials Segment Headwaters Resources is the largest domestic manager and marketer of coal combustion products (CCPs), including fly ash. Utilization of these materials improves performance of concrete and concrete construction products while creating significant environmental benefits. Revenues from the heavy construction materials segment were $82.6 million in the September 2011 quarter, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 3%, from the September 2010 quarter. The decrease was primarily due to a decline in service revenue related to the completion of certain one-time projects. Gross profit was $22.6 million in the September 2011 quarter, compared to $25.0 million in the September 2010 quarter, and operating income was $15.5 million in the September 2011 quarter compared to $17.2 million in the September 2010 quarter. Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $19.2 million in the September 2011 quarter from $20.4 million in the September 2010 quarter. The overall decline in revenue along with higher transportation and other costs were the primary drivers of lower gross margin, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2011. The U.S. House of Representatives has approved bipartisan legislation to regulate the disposal of fly ash. HR 2273, the "Coal Residuals Reuse and Management Act," provides a non-hazardous fly ash disposal regulatory program, granting a primary role for states to manage fly ash disposal with federal supervision and national standards. HR 2273 passed the full House on October 14, 2011 by a vote of 267 to 144, including support from 37 Democratic Representatives, which makes it the most bipartisan EPA-oriented bill to pass the House this year. On October 20th, Senators John Hoeven and Kent Conrad, along with eight additional original co-sponsors, introduced comparable legislation in the U.S. Senate. Five original Democratic co-sponsors emphasized the bipartisan support in the Senate for resolving the regulatory uncertainty caused by the EPA and the adoption of appropriate disposal standards for fly ash. Energy Technology Segment Headwaters Energy Services currently owns and operates coal cleaning facilities, and is also involved in the commercialization of heavy oil upgrading processes, liquefaction of coal into liquid fuels and production of ethanol. Headwaters has assessed the strategic fit of its various operations and is pursuing divestiture of certain businesses in the energy technology segment that do not align with the Company's long-term strategy. Headwaters is committed to selling its coal cleaning business, which is part of the energy technology segment. As a result, coal cleaning sales revenue and results of operations are now being presented as discontinued operations for all periods. Headwaters currently expects to sell the coal cleaning business to one or more buyers before the end of fiscal 2012. Headwaters recorded a non-cash asset impairment charge of $35 million, during the quarter ended September 2011, which is included in loss from discontinued operations. It is anticipated that the cash proceeds from the sale of the coal cleaning assets will be in the range of $20 to $30 million. Energy technology segment revenues from continuing operations will now consist primarily of sales of HCAT, our heavy oil upgrading catalyst additive. We experienced 340% growth from 2010 to 2011 in HCAT sales, as we served our initial customers and revenue from HCAT grew to $16 million in 2011. For the quarter ended September 2011 revenue from continuing operations in our energy segment was $5.5 million compared to $3.8 million in the September 2010 quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $0.2 million in the September 2011 quarter compared to $(1.5) million in the September 2010 quarter. Income Taxes In fiscal 2011, Headwaters did not recognize income tax benefits attributable to its pre-tax operating loss and tax credits, as compared to fiscal year 2010 when tax benefits were fully recognized. Because the realization of deferred tax assets related to most of Headwaters' NOLs, tax credits, and other losses is dependent upon future income or capital gains related to operations that have generated losses, Headwaters does not currently meet the GAAP threshold for realization of those NOLs, tax credits, and other losses. Outlook "We are pleased with the progress to date from our restructuring efforts, achieving significant improvements in free cash flow, with a low cash cost," said Don P. Newman, Headwaters' Chief Financial Officer. "We expect to generate between $20 and $30 million of free cash flow next year, apart from restructuring costs, as we continue to pay down our subordinated debt. “We expect our Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for 2012 to be in the range of $85 million to $95 million, assuming revenue levels are consistent with 2011 revenue from continuing operations, and no material increases in commodity prices,” concluded Mr. Newman. Discussion of EBITDA Headwaters has historically defined EBITDA as net income plus net interest expense, income taxes (excluding income tax credits generated), depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, foreign currency translation gain or loss and goodwill or other impairments. Any additional adjustments to EBITDA are detailed in the table that follows. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management to measure operating performance, as a supplement to our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by investors to measure a company's ability to service its debt and meet its other cash needs. The EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA calculations as reflected in the following tables are consistent with the definitions Headwaters has used historically and with the definitions management intends on using in future periods when measuring operating performance. Management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are helpful in highlighting trends, because EBITDA excludes certain results of decisions that are outside the control of operating management and can differ significantly from company to company depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, tax jurisdictions, and capital investments. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them to supplement GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting the business rather than by using GAAP results alone. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as they do not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Our presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because the definition of EBITDA varies among companies and industries, our definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly-titled measures used by other companies. Headwaters' calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and trailing twelve months (TTM) Adjusted EBITDA are reflected in the following tables. All amounts which follow are presented on a continuing operations basis and do not include the results from coal cleaning for any period.
