Clearwater Paper Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results

11/02/2021

SPOKANE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Clearwater Paper Corporation (NYSE:CLW), a premier supplier of quality tissue and bleached paperboard products, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2021.

THIRD QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net income of $2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $50 million
  • Reduced net debt by $7 million in the quarter and $32 million for the first nine months of 2021
  • Closed Neenah, Wisconsin tissue facility
  • Completed planned major maintenance at Cypress Bend, Arkansas facility
  • Tissue demand recovery and paperboard price increases

“We exceeded our expectations in the third quarter with higher tissue demand, continued strength in our paperboard business, and solid operational execution,” said Arsen Kitch, president and chief executive officer. “Our performance improved relative to the second quarter with higher paperboard pricing, greater tissue volumes, and lower planned major maintenance outage expense, partly offset by increased inflation pressure.”

OVERALL RESULTS

For the third quarter of 2021, Clearwater Paper reported net sales of $450 million, a 2% decrease compared to net sales of $457 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net income for the third quarter of 2021 was $2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net income for the third quarter of 2020 of $21 million, or $1.28 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Clearwater Paper reported adjusted net income in the third quarter of 2021 of $9 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to third quarter 2020 adjusted net income of $27 million, or $1.59 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $50 million, compared to the third quarter of 2020 Adjusted EBITDA of $77 million.

For the first nine months of 2021, Clearwater Paper reported net sales of $1.3 billion, a 9% decrease compared to net sales of $1.4 billion for the first nine months of 2020. Net loss for the first nine months of 2021 was $38 million, or $2.25 per diluted share, compared to net income for the first nine months of 2020 of $55 million, or $3.27 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, Clearwater Paper reported adjusted net income in the first nine months of 2021 of $3 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to first nine months of 2020 adjusted net income of $64 million, or $3.81 per diluted share.

Pulp and Paperboard Products Segment

Net sales in the Pulp and Paperboard Products segment were $237 million for the third quarter of 2021, up 9% compared to third quarter 2020 net sales of $217 million. Segment operating income for the third quarter of 2021 was $35 million compared to $33 million for the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $43 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $42 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by higher sales prices offset by inflation and higher maintenance outage costs.

Net sales in the Pulp and Paperboard Products segment were $685 million for the first nine months of 2021, up 4% compared to first nine months of 2020 net sales of $657 million. Segment operating income for the first nine months of 2021 was $73 million compared to $91 million for the first nine months of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $99 million in the first nine months of 2021, compared to $118 million in the first nine months of 2020. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by higher maintenance outage costs and inflation which was partially offset with higher sales prices.

Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $20 million in the third quarter of 2021, down from $49 million in the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was driven by higher input costs due to inflation and lower sales volume as COVID demand impacts have lessened.

Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $61 million in the first nine months of 2021, down from $134 million in the first nine months of 2020.

COMPANY OUTLOOK

“We delivered strong results in the third quarter despite increased inflation across key cost categories in both segments. As we look out into the fourth quarter, we are expecting continued favorable market dynamics in our paperboard business and a realization of benefits from the Neenah mill closure, offset by higher inflation across key cost areas. We continue to focus on operational execution to mitigate inflation and prioritizing cash flows to reduce net debt.”

WEBCAST INFORMATION

Clearwater Paper Corporation will discuss these results during an earnings conference call that begins at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time today. A live webcast and accompanying supplemental information will be available on the company's website at http://ir.clearwaterpaper.com. A replay of today's conference call will be available on the website at https://ir.clearwaterpaper.com/investors/events-and-presentations beginning at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time today.

USE OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this press release, the company presents certain non-GAAP financial information for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 and 2020, including adjusted income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA. Because these amounts are not in accordance with GAAP, reconciliations to net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP are included in the tables at the end of this press release. The company presents these non-GAAP amounts because management believes they assist investors and analysts in comparing the company's performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. In addition, the company uses Adjusted EBITDA: (i) as factors in evaluating management’s performance when determining incentive compensation, (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of the company's business strategies, and (iii) because the company's credit agreement and the indentures governing the company's outstanding notes use metrics similar to Adjusted EBITDA to measure the company's compliance with certain covenants.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as amended, including statements regarding product demand, cash generation, performance improvements, market conditions, debt reduction, performance improvements, market conditions, and the company's ability to mitigate inflation costs. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, assumptions, and projections that are subject to change, and actual results may differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to: the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and operations, our suppliers' operations and our customer demand; competitive pricing pressures for our products, including as a result of increased capacity, as additional manufacturing facilities are operated by our competitors and the impact of foreign currency fluctuations on the pricing of products globally; the loss of, changes in prices in regard to, or reduction in, orders from a significant customer; changes in the cost and availability of wood fiber and wood pulp; changes in transportation costs and disruptions in transportation services; changes in customer product preferences and competitors' product offerings; larger competitors having operational, financial and other advantages; customer acceptance and timing and quantity of purchases of our tissue products, including the existence of sufficient demand for and the quality of tissue produced by the company’s expanded Shelby, North Carolina operations; consolidation and vertical integration of converting operations in the paperboard industry; our ability to successfully implement our operational efficiencies and cost savings strategies, along with related capital projects; changes in the U.S. and international economies and in general economic conditions in the regions and industries in which the company operates; manufacturing or operating disruptions, including IT system and IT system implementation failures, equipment malfunctions and damage to the company’s manufacturing facilities; cyber-security risks; changes in costs for and availability of packaging supplies, chemicals, energy, and maintenance and repairs; labor disruptions; cyclical industry conditions; changes in expenses, required contributions, and potential withdrawal costs associated with our pension plans; environmental liabilities or expenditures; reliance on a limited number of third-party suppliers for raw materials; our ability to attract, motivate, train and retain qualified and key personnel; our substantial indebtedness and ability to service our debt obligations and restrictions on our business from debt covenants and terms; negative changes in our credit agency ratings; changes in laws, regulations or industry standards affecting the company’s business; and other risks and uncertainties described from time to time in the company's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 and subsequently filed periodic reports on Form 10-Q. The forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this press release and the company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements based on new developments or changes in the company's expectations after the date of this press release.
