Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

11/04/2021

Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. (NYSE: OEC), a global supplier of specialty and high-performance carbon black, today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Reinstated dividend at a level that enhances shareholder returns without impeding continued investments aimed at driving growth in differentiated applications and raising Orion’s long-term earnings potential
  • Continued strong performance in our Specialty business, despite disruptions to the global economy
  • Advanced key investments: U.S. emissions controls, Ravenna expansion, and initiated construction of second plant in China, positioning the company for growth from increased demand for carbon black in the rapidly expanding Asia-Pacific region
  • Refinanced term debt with 7-year, sustainability-linked Term Loan B — among the first by a public corporate issuer in the U.S.
  • Approximately two-thirds of 2022 EMEA and Americas Rubber business volumes contracted — at higher pricing to recover additional costs and to finance ongoing investments
  • Net sales of $393.1 million, up $111.1 million, year over year
  • Net income of $21.0 million, up $12.0 million, year over year
  • Basic EPS of $0.35, up $0.20, year over year
  • Adjusted EPS1 of $0.45, up $0.11, year over year
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $66.4 million, up $11.4 million, year over year

1 The reconciliations of Non-GAAP measures to the respective most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the section titled Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures below.

"The Orion team delivered a solid third quarter—in line with our expectations, with Adjusted EBITDA up 21% percent, year-on-year, despite slightly weaker demand conditions than in the first half of 2021. The team advanced several key projects and turnarounds in the quarter. Notably, we started up the air emissions controls in Ivanhoe. While we expect to manage through typical start-up challenges in the early months of operation, we are very pleased with what we have accomplished thus far. We also successfully concluded negotiations with several of our customers. We have approximately two-thirds of our Americas and EMEA Rubber volume under contract for 2022 with new agreements at higher pricing, reflecting cost trends and on-going investments,” said Corning Painter, chief executive officer.

Mr. Painter continued, “I am also proud of the team that successfully completed the refinancing of our existing term debt via a sustainability-linked term loan that was well received by investors both in Europe and the U.S. Finally, from a capital allocation perspective, with the recent reinstatement of our dividend, we are well positioned to resume returning cash to shareholders while also comfortably advancing investments focused on capturing growth in differentiated applications, driving sustainability, safely executing our final two air emissions up-grades in the U.S., and positioning the company to generate substantial discretionary cash flow in 2023.”

The reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the respective most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the section titled Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.

Volumes decreased by 0.1 kmt, year over year, primarily due to lower volume in the Rubber Carbon Black segment, partially offset by higher demand in our Specialty Carbon Black segment, across all applications and geographies, primarily driven by global recovery from the COVID-19 induced economic downturn.

Net sales increased by $111.1 million, or 39.4%, year over year, driven primarily by the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs and favorable product mix.

Income from operations increased by $16.2 million, or 66.8%, to $40.3 million, year over year, driven primarily by favorable product mix across both businesses, the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs, higher co-generation profitability and higher sales volume in our Specialty Carbon Black segment, partially offset by higher fixed costs.

Net income increased by $12.0 million, or 133.5%, to $21.0 million, year over year, driven primarily by favorable product mix, higher sales volume in our Specialty Carbon Black segment, and the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs, partially offset by higher fixed costs.

Contribution margin increased by $22.3 million, or 18.9%, to $140.5 million, year over year, primarily due to favorable product mix, the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs, and higher sales volume in our Specialty Carbon Black segment.

Adjusted EBITDA increased by $11.4 million, or 20.8%, to $66.4 million, year over year, primarily due to favorable product mix, the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs and higher sales volume in our Specialty Carbon Black segment, partially offset by higher fixed costs.

Rubber Carbon Black volumes declined by 5.2 kmt, or 3.0%, year over year, reflecting lower demand.

Net sales increased by $64.5 million, or 36.1%, to $242.9 million, year over year, primarily due to the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs, partially offset by lower volume.

Rubber Adjusted EBITDA declined by $1.1 million, or 4.0%, to $27.4 million, year over year, driven by the impact of passing through higher feedstock costs and favorable product mix, partially offset by lower volume and higher fixed costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased 470 basis points to 11.3%, year over year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

As of September 30, 2021, the company had total liquidity of $337.0 million, including cash and equivalents of $62.3 million, $238.8 million under our revolving credit facility capacity, including ancillary lines, and $35.9 million of capacity under other available credit lines. Net debt was $653.5 million and net leverage was 2.32x.

Cash Flow

Cash inflows from operating activities amounted to $121.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, and rose $28.9 million, year over year, primarily driven by higher net income due to improved operating results and proceeds from settling the longstanding Evonik dispute, partially offset by higher working capital.

Net cash used in investing activities was $113.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, down $6.7 million, year over year, primarily driven by the timing of EPA-related capital expenditures.

Net cash used in financing activities of $7.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to cash provided by financing activities of $60.9 million in the prior year period, primarily reflects repayments under our senior secured revolving credit facilities. Our financing activity included refinancing of our term loan and associated costs. Net cash provided by financing during 2020 reflects management bolstering its cash position to successfully manage through the pandemic in the year ago period.

Outlook

"As we approach the end of an exceptional year, we are narrowing our Adjusted EBITDA guidance to a range of $265 million to $280 million, amid dynamic market conditions including supply chain and inflationary pressures, and the delayed start-up of our Ivanhoe plant,” Mr. Painter concluded.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains and refers to certain forward-looking statements with respect to our financial condition, results of operations and business, including those in the “Outlook” and “Quarterly Business Segment Results” sections above. These statements constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Forward-looking statements are statements of future expectations that are based on management’s current expectations and assumptions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from those expressed or implied in these statements. Forward-looking statements include, among others, statements concerning the potential exposure to market risks, statements expressing management’s expectations, beliefs, estimates, forecasts, projections and assumptions and statements that are not limited to statements of historical or present facts or conditions. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as “anticipate,” "assume," “assure,” “believe,” “confident,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “objectives,” “outlook,” “probably,” “project,” “will,” “seek,” “target” “to be,” and other words of similar meaning.

These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements about the following matters: • our strategies for (i) mitigating the impacts of the global outbreak of the Coronavirus, (ii) strengthening our position in specialty carbon blacks and rubber carbon blacks, (iii) increasing our rubber carbon black margins and (iv) strengthening the competitiveness of our operations; • the ability to pay dividends at historical dividend levels or at all; • cash flow projections; • the installation of pollution control technology in our U.S. manufacturing facilities pursuant to the EPA consent decree; • the outcome of any in-progress, pending or possible litigation, arbitration or regulatory proceedings; and • our expectation that the markets we serve will continue to grow.

All these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions that, although believed to be reasonable, are inherently uncertain. Therefore, undue reliance should not be placed upon any forward-looking statements. There are important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. These factors include, among others: • the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and results of operations; • negative or uncertain worldwide economic conditions; • volatility and cyclicality in the industries in which we operate; • operational risks inherent in chemicals manufacturing, including disruptions as a result of severe weather conditions and natural disasters; • our dependence on major customers and suppliers; • our ability to compete in the industries and markets in which we operate; • our ability to address changes in the nature of future transportation and mobility concepts which may impact our customers and our business; • our ability to develop new products and technologies successfully and the availability of substitutes for our products; • our ability to implement our business strategies; • volatility in the costs and availability of raw materials and energy; • our ability to respond to changes in feedstock prices and quality; • our ability to realize benefits from investments, joint ventures, acquisitions or alliances; • our ability to realize benefits from planned plant capacity expansions and site development projects and the potential delays to such expansions and projects; • information technology systems failures, network disruptions and breaches of data security; • our relationships with our workforce, including negotiations with labor unions, strikes and work stoppages; • our ability to recruit or retain key management and personnel; • our exposure to political or country risks inherent in doing business in some countries; • geopolitical events in the European Union (“EU”), and in particular the ultimate future relations between the EU and the United Kingdom; • environmental, health and safety regulations, including nanomaterial and greenhouse gas emissions regulations, and the related costs of maintaining compliance and addressing liabilities; • possible future investigations and enforcement actions by governmental or supranational agencies; • our operations as a company in the chemical sector, including the related risks of leaks, fires and toxic releases; • market and regulatory changes that may affect our ability to sell or otherwise benefit from co-generated energy; • litigation or legal proceedings, including product liability and environmental claims; • our ability to protect our intellectual property rights and know-how; • our ability to generate the funds required to service our debt and finance our operations; • fluctuations in foreign currency exchange and interest rates; • the availability and efficiency of hedging; • changes in international and local economic conditions, including with regard to the Euro, dislocations in credit and capital markets and inflation or deflation; • potential impairments or write-offs of certain assets; • required increases in our pension fund contributions; • the adequacy of our insurance coverage; • changes in our jurisdictional earnings mix or in the tax laws or accepted interpretations of tax laws in those jurisdictions; • challenges to our decisions and assumptions in assessing and complying with our tax obligations; and • potential difficulty in obtaining or enforcing judgments or bringing legal actions against Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. (a Luxembourg incorporated entity) in the United States (“U.S.”).

You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. We present certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. These non-U.S. GAAP measures are Contribution Margin, Contribution Margin per metric ton, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Net Working Capital and Capital Expenditures. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Contribution Margin and Net Working Capital are not measures of performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or construed as substitutes for net sales, consolidated profit (loss) for the period, income from operations, gross profit or other U.S. GAAP measures as an indicator of our operations in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For a reconciliation of these non-U.S. GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, see table titled Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures.

Factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements include those factors detailed under the captions “Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and in Note S, Commitments and Contingencies.to our audited consolidated financial statements regarding contingent liabilities, including litigation. It is not possible for our management to predict all risk factors and uncertainties, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement - including those in the “2021 Outlook” and “Quarterly Business Segment Results” sections above - as a result of new information, future events or other information, other than as required by applicable law.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP or the accounting standards of any other jurisdiction and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. These non-U.S. GAAP measures are - but are not limited to - Contribution Margin, Contribution Margin per Metric Ton (collectively, “Contribution Margins”), Adjusted EBITDA, Net Working Capital and Capital Expenditures. We define Contribution Margin as revenue less variable costs (such as raw materials, packaging, utilities and distribution costs). We define Contribution Margin per Metric Ton as Contribution Margin divided by volume measured in metric tons. We define Adjusted EBITDA as income from operations before depreciation and amortization, restructuring expenses, consulting fees related to Company strategy, gain related to legal settlement, share of profit or loss of joint venture and certain other items. Adjusted EBITDA is defined similarly in the Credit Agreement. Adjusted EBITDA is used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and make decisions regarding allocation of capital because it excludes the effects of items that have less bearing on the performance of our underlying core business. We define Net Working Capital as inventories plus current trade receivables minus trade payables. We define Capital Expenditures as cash paid for the acquisition of intangible assets and property, plant and equipment as shown in the consolidated financial statements. We also use Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which we define as Adjusted EBITDA for the relevant segment divided by the revenue for that segment.

We use Adjusted EBITDA, Contribution Margins and Net Working Capital, as well as Adjusted EBITDA by segment and Segment Adjusted EBITDA Margin, as internal measures of performance to benchmark and compare performance among our own operations. We use these measures, together with other measures of performance under GAAP, to compare the relative performance of operations in planning, budgeting and reviewing the performance of our business. We believe these measures are useful measures of financial performance in addition to consolidated net income for the period, income from operations and other profitability measures under GAAP because they facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company and, with respect to Contribution Margin, eliminate volatility in feedstock prices. By eliminating potential differences in results of operations between periods or companies caused by factors such as depreciation and amortization methods, historic cost and age of assets, financing and capital structures and taxation positions or regimes, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful additional basis for comparing the current performance of the underlying operations being evaluated. For these reasons, we believe EBITDA-based measures are often used by the investment community as a means of comparison of companies in our industry. By deducting variable costs (such as raw materials, packaging, utilities and distribution costs) from revenue, we believe that Contribution Margins can provide a useful basis for comparing the current performance of the underlying operations being evaluated by indicating the portion of revenue that is not consumed by these variable costs and therefore contributes to the coverage of all costs and profits.

Different companies and analysts may calculate measures based on EBITDA, contribution margins and working capital differently, so making comparisons among companies on this basis should be done carefully. Adjusted EBITDA, Contribution Margins and Net Working Capital are not measures of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or construed as substitutes for revenue, consolidated net income for the period, income from operations, gross profit and other GAAP measures as an indicator of our operations in accordance with GAAP.
