Carpenter Technology Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2021 Results

Jul 29,2021

PHILADELPHIA, July 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS) (the “Company”) today announced financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2021. For the quarter, the Company reported a net loss of $57.1 million, or $1.18 loss per diluted share. Excluding special items, adjusted loss per diluted share was $0.28 for the quarter.

“Our fourth quarter results finished ahead of our expectations as overall end-use market conditions showed further signs of recovery. We continued to actively manage our business,” said Tony R. Thene, President and CEO of Carpenter Technology. “We generated $43 million in free cash flow in the quarter and finished the fiscal year with $582 million in total liquidity, including $287 million of cash on hand.”

“Fiscal year 2021 has been a challenging yet successful year for Carpenter Technology. Over the past year we executed various portfolio initiatives and targeted cost reductions, further implemented the Carpenter Operating Model to secure notable productivity gains and generated over $130 million of free cash flow. We also expanded and further strengthened key customer relationships and added additional qualifications for our Athens facility. Our efforts will prove critical to our position as demand conditions across our end-use markets are strengthening and we believe the beginning of a broad-based recovery is taking shape. We remain a critical solutions provider for our customers and have successfully deepened our relationships during the downturn. The long-term outlook for our end-use markets remains attractive and we are well positioned given our mission-critical solutions coupled with leading capabilities and established supply chain position.”

“Looking ahead, our focus is centered on capitalizing on emerging opportunities across our end-use markets as conditions further improve. We are a leaner and more flexible company and remain a critical solutions provider across our end-use markets. Our strong position in our core business is supported by our capabilities in key emerging areas including electrification and additive manufacturing that further support our long-term growth profile.”

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 were $421.6 million compared with $437.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, a decrease of $15.7 million (negative 3.6 percent), on flat volume. Net sales excluding surcharge were $348.1 million, a decrease of $27.8 million (negative 7.4 percent) from the same period a year ago.

Operating loss was $70.7 million compared to operating loss of $148.2 million in the prior year period. Adjusted operating loss excluding special items was $12.5 million in the recent fourth quarter compared to an adjusted operating loss of $8.9 million a year ago.

Special items excluded from adjusted operating loss in the current quarter totaled $58.2 million. This includes non-cash LIFO decrement charges totaling $52.2 million, of which $47.9 million is included in the Specialty Alloys Operations (“SAO”) segment operating loss and $4.3 million is included in the Performance Engineered Products (“PEP”) segment operating loss in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. The LIFO decrement charges are non-cash charges associated with reducing inventory and liquidating LIFO layers that have historical costs in excess of the current year inventory costs. The special items in the current quarter also include $1.6 million of inventory write-downs from restructuring, $1.5 million in restructuring and asset impairment charges associated with executing against plans to streamline the Company’s Additive business units, and $2.9 million ($2.1 million included in SAO segment, $0.8 million included in PEP segment) of costs associated with COVID-19. The COVID-19 costs in both periods principally consist of direct incremental operating costs including outside services to execute enhanced cleaning protocols, additional personal protective equipment, isolation pay for production employees potentially exposed to COVID-19 and various operating supplies necessary to maintain the operations while keeping employees safe against possible exposure in the Company’s facilities.

Cash provided from operating activities in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $74.5 million, compared to $136.9 million in the same quarter last year. Free cash flow in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 was $42.6 million, compared to $99.8 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease in operating cash flow primarily reflects the impact of lower earnings after non-cash adjustments to net income relative to the same quarter a year ago. This was partially offset by lower capital expenditures of $22.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021 compared to $27.4 million in the same quarter last year.

Total liquidity, including cash and available credit facility borrowings, was $582.0 million at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. This consisted of $287.4 million of cash and $294.6 million of available borrowings under the Company’s credit facility.

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, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas as well as South Carolina and Alabama.

The PEP segment is comprised of the Company’s differentiated operations. This segment includes the Dynamet titanium business, the Carpenter Additive business and the Latrobe and Mexico distribution businesses. Effective July 1, 2020, the Company's Carpenter Powder Products business was merged into the Carpenter Additive business. The Amega West business was also part of the PEP segment however the business was divested during the quarter ended September 30, 2020. 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 Additive businesses.

Corporate costs are comprised of executive and director compensation, and other corporate facilities and administrative expenses not allocated to the segments. Also included are items that management considers not representative of ongoing operations and other specifically-identified income or expense items.

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 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 in other (income) expense, net.

Management believes that removing the impact of raw material surcharge from operating margin provides a more consistent basis for comparing results of operations from period to period, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company.  In addition, management believes that excluding the impact of special items from operating margin is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these items are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company’s board of directors and others.

Management believes that (loss) earnings per share adjusted to exclude the impact of special items is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these items are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company's board of directors and others.
