"I'd like to thank the employees of TimkenSteel who worked tirelessly throughout 2020, under challenging conditions, to support our customers' needs while making significant progress on improving our cost structure and processes. These actions are helping to transform our company and will better position us to leverage improving end markets as we enter 2021," said Mike Williams, president and chief executive officer. "In 2020, the TimkenSteel team delivered improved adjusted EBITDA(2) and strong operating cash flow while, most importantly, achieving excellent safety performance.

"Our 2021 priorities are clear – improve our commercial effectiveness, enhance manufacturing efficiencies, and streamline business processes while continuing to take out unnecessary costs. We remain deeply focused on creating value for our shareholders through improved profitability and an intense focus on cash," stated Williams.

FOURTH QUARTER OF 2020 FINANCIAL SUMMARY 

  • Net sales of $211.2 million increased 3 percent compared with $205.9 million in the third quarter of 2020, driven primarily by a continued rebound in automotive demand. Compared with the prior-year quarter, net sales declined 7 percent largely driven by lower ship tons.
  • Ship tons of 164,000 increased 6 percent sequentially as a result of higher automotive and industrial shipments. When compared with the prior-year quarter, ship tons declined 9 percent due to lower industrial, energy and OCTG billet demand, partially offset by higher automotive shipments.
  • Manufacturing costs improved sequentially as a result of higher melt utilization and the timing of the planned annual maintenance shutdown that occurred in the third quarter of 2020. Compared with the prior-year quarter, manufacturing costs improved due to higher melt utilization and the impact of systemic cost reduction actions.
  • SG&A expense was $18.6 million, a 4 percent increase from the third quarter of 2020 as a result of higher variable compensation expense. Excluding certain items(2), SG&A expense improved 11 percent from the prior year period as a result of savings from employee restructuring actions.

FULL-YEAR 2020 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

  • Net sales of $830.7 million declined 31 percent compared with the prior year, driven largely by the negative impact on customer demand from the COVID-19 pandemic and a weak energy market. Additionally, the average raw material surcharge per ton decreased 25 percent as a result of lower scrap and alloy prices, which was slightly offset by positive mix in the industrial end market.
  • Ship tons were 640,400, a decrease of 29 percent from the prior year given the lower demand environment in 2020.
  • Manufacturing costs were favorable compared with 2019 primarily as a result of significant cost reduction actions, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of weak demand on production levels and lower melt utilization.
  • SG&A expense was $76.7 million compared with $91.8 million in the prior year. Excluding certain items(2), SG&A expense declined $9.8 million or 11 percent as a result of cost reduction actions partially offset by higher variable compensation expense.

MANUFACTURING ASSET OPTIMIZATION
Throughout 2020, the company operated its manufacturing assets as demand required. In particular, the Harrison melt and casting assets operated at an average utilization rate of less than 25 percent in 2020. To improve the company's manufacturing efficiency and utilization, we plan to indefinitely idle the Harrison melt and casting assets late in the first quarter of 2021 and perform all melting and casting activities at our Faircrest location, also located in Canton, Ohio. We are working collaboratively with our employees, suppliers, and a number of customers to ensure a well-organized and efficient transition. The company's rolling and finishing operations at Harrison will not be impacted by this action. Annual cash savings from the indefinite idling of Harrison's melt and casting shop are expected to be in the range of $15 million to $20 million, with full run-rate savings expected to be achieved beginning in 2022.

CASH AND LIQUIDITY
As of December 31, 2020, the company's cash balance totaled $102.8 million, benefitting from another quarter of solid operating cash flow generation in the amount of $52.5 million. For the full-year 2020, operating cash flow totaled $173.5 million. This strong operating cash flow generation enabled the company to repay the remaining $20 million of outstanding borrowings on its credit facility during the fourth quarter of 2020 and repay $90 million of outstanding borrowings in total during 2020. Additionally, the company improved its capital structure in the fourth quarter of 2020 by extending the maturity of $46 million of convertible notes from 2021 to 2025. Total liquidity was $314.1 million as of December 31, 2020, an improvement of $34.1 million from September 30, 2020 and $83.8 million from December 31, 2019.

OUTLOOK
Given the extent and uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19 on the economy and TimkenSteel's customers, the company is not providing quantitative earnings guidance for the first quarter of 2021. We are, however, encouraged by recent improvements in automotive and industrial end market demand.

From a cash sources and uses perspective, the company expects:

  • Cash from operating activities to be a use of cash in the first quarter of 2021 given improving demand and the rise in raw material prices.
  • Capital expenditures to be approximately $20 million in 2021.
  • Required pension contributions to be modest at $1 million to $2 million in 2021.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TimkenSteel reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and corresponding metrics as non-GAAP financial measures. This earnings release includes references to the following non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted earnings (loss) per share, adjusted net income (loss), EBIT, adjusted EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted SG&A, free cash flow and base sales. These are important financial measures used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as these measures are representative of the company's performance and provide improved comparability of results.  See the attached schedules for definitions of the non-GAAP financial measures referred to above and corresponding reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed as additions to, and not as alternatives for, TimkenSteel's results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and other companies may not define the non-GAAP measures TimkenSteel uses in the same way.

(1) Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes and Common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards for the three months ended December 31, 2020, were included in the computation of adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share. The total diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was 58.8 million shares.


(2) For the three months ended 2020, these adjustments have $0 net tax effect, since the company has Net Operating Loss carryforwards. Due to intraperiod tax allocations in the three months ended 2019, income tax (benefit) expense adjustments reflect the impact on income taxes from the adjustments listed in the table above.


(3) Adjusted net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) excluding, as applicable, adjustments listed in the table above.


(4) Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes and Common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards for the three months ended December 31, 2019, were excluded from the computation of adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.


(5) Business transformation costs consist of items that are non-routine in nature and are primarily related to professional service fees associated with the disposition of non-core assets, as well as CEO transition fees.

These Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and a reconciliation of these financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is presented.

Reconciliation of Earnings (Loss) Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT)(1), Adjusted EBIT(3), Earnings (Loss) Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)(2) and Adjusted EBITDA(4) to GAAP Net Income (Loss):

This reconciliation is provided as additional relevant information about the company's performance. EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are important financial measures used in the management of the business, including decisions concerning the allocation of resources and assessment of performance. Management believes that reporting EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as these measures are representative of the company's performance. Management also believes that it is appropriate to compare GAAP net income (loss) to EBIT, Adjusted EBIT, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA.

Reconciliation of Base Sales by end market sector to GAAP Net Sales by end-market sector:

The tables below present base sales by end-market sector, which represents a financial measure that has not been determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Base sales by end-market sector is defined as net sales by end-market sector excluding raw material surcharges. Base Sales by end-market sector is an important financial measure used in the management of the business. Management believes presenting base sales by end-market sector is useful to investors as it provides additional insight into key drivers of base sales such as base price and product mix.
