Synalloy Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results:

Sales and Earnings Continue to Exceed Forecasts

RICHMOND, Va., Nov. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synalloy Corporation (Nasdaq: SYNL), today announced net sales for the third quarter of 2018 of $77.8 million. This represents an increase of $23.2 million or 42% when compared to net sales for the third quarter of 2017. Net sales for the first nine months of 2018 were $208.2 million, an increase of $59.9 million or 40% from the first nine months of 2017.

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company recorded net income of $5.0 million, or $0.56 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.14 loss per share for the third quarter of 2017. For the first nine months of 2018, net income was $12.5 million, or $1.42 per share. This compares to net income of $0.3 million, or $0.04 per share for the first nine months of 2017.

The Company also reports its performance utilizing two non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company's performance, as calculated under the two measures, is as follows:

  • Adjusted Net Income for the third quarter of 2018 was $5.8 million, or $0.65 of Adjusted Net Income per share (diluted), an increase of $6.9 million from a loss of $1.0 million, or $0.12 loss per share for the third quarter of 2017. For the first nine months of 2018, Adjusted Net Income was $16.3 million, or Adjusted Net Income of $1.84 per share (diluted), compared to $1.4 million, or $0.16 per share for the first nine months of 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $9.6 million for the third quarter of 2018 to $10.3 million (13.2% of sales), from $0.7 million (1.3% of sales) for the third quarter of 2017. For the first nine months of 2018, Adjusted EBITDA was $28.2 million (13.6% of sales) compared to $8.6 million (5.8% of sales) for the first nine months of 2017.

The Company's results are periodically impacted by factors that are not included as adjustments to our non-GAAP measures but represent items that help understand differences in period to period results. For the third quarter of 2018, the most significant of those was inventory price change gain which, on a pre-tax basis, totaled $1.6 million, compared to a $2.0 million loss for the third quarter of 2017, representing an improvement of $3.6 million in pre-tax income compared to the prior year.

“The company had another excellent quarter, with results matching or exceeding in several areas the record performance of the prior quarter,” said Craig C. Bram, President and CEO. “Total revenue for the third quarter was a new record and Adjusted EBITDA matched the record posted in the previous quarter. Backlogs in the Metals Segment continued to improve, while new product introductions in the Specialty Chemicals Segment contributed to substantial gains in sales over the same period last year.”

Metals Segment

The Metals Segment's net sales for the third quarter of 2018 totaled $61.0 million, an increase of $18.0 million or 42% from the third quarter of 2017. Net sales for the first nine months of 2018 were $162.9 million, an increase of $51.1 million or 46% from the first nine months of 2017.

Sales of seamless carbon pipe and tube were up 18.2% over last year’s third quarter. Storage tank and vessel sales increased 17.9% over last year’s third quarter. Stainless steel pipe and tube sales were up 31.2% over last year’s third quarter. Galvanized pipe and tube sales from the July 1, 2018 MUSA-Galvanized acquisition (described below) added $6.5 million to Metals Segment net sales for the third quarter of 2018.

The backlog for our subsidiary, Bristol Metals, LLC, as of September 30, 2018 was $37.2 million, while the backlog for our subsidiary, Palmer of Texas Tanks, Inc., totaled $20.1 million, improvements of 55% and 18%, respectively, over levels at the end of the third quarter of 2017.

The Metals Segment's operating income increased $9.2 million to $8.0 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to an operating loss of $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2017. For the first nine months of 2018, operating income for the Metals Segment increased $20.4 million to $23.1 million compared to operating income of $2.7 million for the same period of 2017.

Current quarter operating results were affected by the following factors:

a) Nickel prices and resulting surcharges for 304 and 316 alloys ended the third quarter of 2018 lower than the previous quarter, with surcharges for both alloys decreasing by $0.03 per pound; however, average nickel prices for the quarter generated a net favorable operating impact of $1.6 million related to metal pricing;

b) Year over year improvements in volume, pricing, and product mix combined for a 241% improvement in gross profit margins in the third quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter in 2017; and

c) Seamless carbon pipe and tube showed significant improvement with a 18.2% increase in sales driving a 330% improvement in operating income over the prior year, with activity and margins driven by strong end markets and increased project related orders.

Specialty Chemicals Segment

Net sales for the Specialty Chemicals Segment in the third quarter of 2018 were $16.8 million, representing a $5.2 million or 45% increase from the same quarter of 2017. Sales for the first nine months of 2018 were $45.3 million, up $8.8 million or 24% from 2017 results.

Net sales continued to benefit during the third quarter and first nine months of 2018 primarily from the initial ramp up of seven significant customers, a new fire retardant and new asphalt additive customers at our subsidiary, CRI Tolling, LLC, two new oil and gas customers and two new pulp/paper customers at our subsidiary, Manufacturers Chemicals, LLC, and a new product launch from an existing customer at Manufacturers Chemicals, LLC.

Operating income for the Specialty Chemicals Segment for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.4 million, an increase of $0.2 million or 18%. This represents an improvement over the third quarter of 2017 on a dollar basis, but slightly lower profit as a percent of sales, at 8% versus prior year third quarter at 10%. Similar to what we reported last quarter, the primary difference in operating profit performance compared to prior year third quarter is the relative product mix experienced, with material margins experienced in the third quarter of 2018 approximately 245 bps lower than the prior year third quarter, as more production in 2018 represented products with full material cost absorbed, compared to higher percentage of tolled, no material cost products in 2017.

Other Items

Unallocated corporate expenses for the third quarter of 2018 increased $0.3 million or 22% to $1.9 million (2.4% of sales) compared to $1.6 million (2.9% of sales) for the third quarter of 2017. The third quarter increase resulted primarily from higher incentive bonus accruals ($0.2 million). Unallocated corporate expenses for the first nine months of 2018 increased $0.9 million, or 19%, to $5.6 million (three percent of sales) compared to $4.7 million for the first nine months of 2017. The year-over-year increase resulted primarily from higher incentive bonus accruals ($1.5 million), offset by lower bad-debt expense ($0.2 million).

Acquisition costs were $0.4 million for the third quarter of 2018 ($0.2 million recorded in Metals Segment Cost of Sales and $0.2 million in unallocated SG&A), and $1.1 million for the first nine months of 2018 ($0.3 million recorded in Metals Segment Cost of Sales and $0.9 million in unallocated SG&A) resulting from costs associated with the 2018 MUSA-Galvanized acquisition (described below). This compares to $0.2 million (mainly in Metals Segment Cost of Sales) during the third quarter of 2017 and $1.2 million during the first nine months of 2017 ($0.8 million in unallocated SG&A and $0.4 million in Metals Segment Cost of Sales), related to the 2017 MGUSA-stainless acquisition (described below).

Interest expense was $0.6 million and $0.3 million for the third quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively, and $1.3 million and $0.7 million for the first nine months of 2018 and 2017, respectively. The increase was primarily related to higher average debt outstanding in the third quarter and first nine months of 2018 as additional borrowings were required to support working capital requirements associated with increased business activity.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a loss on the investments in equity securities of $0.5 million.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company decreased the earn-out liabilities resulting from Bristol Metals, LLC's 2017 acquisition of the stainless-steel pipe and tube assets and operations of Marcegaglia USA, Inc. ("MUSA-Stainless") and Bristol Metals, LLC's 2018 acquisition of the galvanized pipe and tube assets and operations of Marcegaglia USA, Inc. ("MUSA-Galvanized") acquisitions by $0.3 million.  The net change represents a decline in the fair value of the liabilities due to forecast changes in pricing and/or volume of small diameter stainless-steel pipe and tube (outside diameter of ten inches or less) and galvanized pipe and tube for the remainder of the measurement periods, which end in February 2021 (stainless products) and June 2022 (galvanized products).

The effective tax rate was 22% for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate is materially equivalent compared to the U.S. statutory rate of 21%. The effective tax rate was 30% and 28% for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017. The 2017 effective tax rate was lower than the statutory rate of 34% primarily due to state tax expense and other permanent differences, mainly the manufacturer's exemption.

The Company's cash balance increased $1.86 million as of September 30, 2018 compared to $15,000 at December 31, 2017. Fluctuations during the period were comprised of the following:

a) Net inventories increased $43.9 million at September 30, 2018 as compared to December 31, 2017. The increase, primarily related to the Metals Segment, included higher levels of pounds due to business activity (40% of the total or $17.4 million), the inventories related to the completed MUSA-Galvanized acquisition on July 1, 2018 ($4.3 million), stainless steel surcharges ($5.6 million), higher special alloy content due to strong backlog ($4.1 million), seasonal replenishment of seamless carbon steel pipe and tube inventory ($8.4 million) and generally higher replacement costs during the first nine months of 2018. Inventory turns decreased from 2.51 turns at December 31, 2017, calculated on a three-month average basis, to 2.43 turns at September 30, 2018;

b) Accounts payable increased $22.4 million as of September 30, 2018 as compared to December 31, 2017. The majority of the increase is related to increased levels of purchasing activity across all sectors of the business, including late third quarter receipts of inventory that were still unpaid on normal terms at the end of the quarter. Accounts payable days outstanding were approximately 67 days at September 30, 2018 compared to 60 days at December 31, 2017;

c) Net accounts receivable increased $20.9 million at September 30, 2018 as compared to December 31, 2017, which primarily resulted from a 49% increase in sales for the last two months of the third quarter 2018 compared to the last two months of the fourth quarter of 2017. Days sales outstanding, calculated using a three-month average basis, increased from 51 days outstanding at the end of December 2017 to 53 days at the end of the third quarter 2018;

d) On July 1, 2018, the Company paid $10.4 million to complete the MUSA-Galvanized acquisition;

e) The Company purchased $5.0 million in equity securities during the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018;

f) Capital expenditures for the first nine months of 2018 were $4.5 million;

g) The Company paid out $1.8 million during the first nine months of 2018 related to the earn-out liability from the 2017 MUSA-Stainless acquisition; and

h) The Company issued and sold 44,378 treasury shares at a net price of $22.60 per share during the first nine months of 2018 in connection with the at-the-market program, raising total net proceeds of $1.0 million.

The Company drew down $36.9 million against its line of credit during the first nine months of 2018 and had $62.8 million of borrowings outstanding as of September 30, 2018. Covenants under the Credit Agreement include maintaining a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio and a limitation on the Company’s maximum amount of capital expenditures per year, which is in line with currently projected needs. As of September 30, 2018, the Company had $16.7 million of remaining available capacity under its Line. The Company was in compliance with all covenants as of September 30, 2018.

Outlook

We remain on course to generate annual sales of $285.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $37.0 million for 2018.  Our M&A pipeline has some attractive opportunities, which we expect to share more details on as we approach year-end. Our end markets remain strong and are poised for continued growth in 2019.  The potential for growth in both the galvanized and ornamental tubing markets is promising, and we look for more project-related spending in the downstream energy markets for our stainless-steel product line.  New product activity in the Specialty Chemical Segment has been very steady.  Recently, we signed a three-year agreement with a long-time customer to increase production of a current product from 500,000 pounds annually to 5.0 million pounds annually.  The customer will be paying for the production cap-ex over the term of the agreement and we expect to be at full production by the end of next year’s second quarter.             

Synalloy Corporation (Nasdaq: SYNL) is a growth-oriented company that engages in a number of diverse business activities including the production of stainless-steel pipe and tubing, galvanized pipe and tubing, fiberglass and steel storage tanks, specialty chemicals, and the master distribution of seamless carbon pipe and tubing.

(1)   The term Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company believes is useful to investors in evaluating its results to determine the value of a company. An item is included in the measure if its periodic value is inconsistent and sufficiently material that not identifying the item would render period comparability less meaningful to the reader or if including the item provides a clearer representation of normalized periodic earnings.  The Company includes in Adjusted EBITDA two categories of items: 1) Base EBITDA components, including: earnings before discontinued operations, interest (including change in fair value of interest rate swap), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and 2) Material transaction costs including: goodwill impairment, acquisition costs, acquisition related retention costs, shelf registration costs, earn-out adjustments, gain on excess death benefit, (gains) losses associated with Sale-leaseback, stock option/grant costs, and other adjustments (lesser value items meeting the criteria, where cumulative impact in a period is material). For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP equivalent, refer to the Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA as shown on next page.
