Marco Levi, Ferroglobe’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Despite a challenging year, Ferroglobe delivered stronger financial results in 2020, and continued to generate positive EBITDA during the fourth quarter. Throughout the year we progressed on addressing near-term priorities, while also diligently developing a multi-year strategic plan aimed at turning around the Company.” Dr. Levi added, “The collective efforts and actions of our global employees helped us successfully navigage 2020 and positions the Company well to capitalize on a pivotal 2021. We certainly look forward to executing the turnaround plan and start delivering value to all our stakeholders in the near term.”

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash generated from operations during Q4 2020 was $3.5 million.

Working capital decreased by $15 million, from $354 million as of September 30, 2020 to $339 million at December 31, 2020. The decrease is mainly driven by a reduction in inventories, partially offset by strengthening of the Euro relative to the US Dollar.

Gross debt was $473 million as of December 31, 2020, up from $442 million as of September 30, 2020, primarily as a result of coupon payment interest accrued, and the impact of the Tribunal Superior de Galicia decision.

Beatriz García-Cos, Ferroglobe’s Chief Financial Officer, commented, “2020 tested our Company in many ways and despite all the financial pressures, we successfully navigated a turbulent year by making quick adjustments and driving cost savings across the all areas of the organization.” Ms. García-Cos added, “We have been exploring various financing options for some time now, and are excited to work towards closing the proposed financing. This financing would eliminate any risks of near-term debt maturities, and the new capital contribution would provide adequate support to fund our strategic plan.”

COVID-19

Since January 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has spread to various jurisdictions where the Company does business. The Company has been monitoring the evolving situation, and consequent emerging risk. Among other steps, the Company has implemented a coronavirus crisis management team, which has been meeting regularly to ensure the Company and its subsidiaries take appropriate action to protect all employees and ensure business continuity.

During the fourth quarter demand for our products was adversely impacted by COVID-19 It is difficult to forecast all the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and such impacts might have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition. The Company is continuously evaluating how evolving customer demand and sales price evolution stand to affect the Company’s business and results in the next twelve months.

In connection with the preparation of our consolidated financial statements, we conducted an evaluation as to whether there were conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, which raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in the one year period after the date of the issuance of these interim financial statements. For this interim financial statement, the evaluation was updated. Given the speed and frequency of continuously evolving developments with respect to this pandemic and the uncertainties this may bring for the Company and the demand for its products, it is difficult to forecast the level of trading activity and hence cash flow in the next twelve months. Developing a reliable estimate of the potential impact on the results of operations and cash flow at this time is difficult as markets and industries react to the pandemic and the measures implemented in response to it, but our downside scenario analysis supports an expectation that the Company will have cash headroom to continue to operate throughout the next twelve months.

Additionally, the indenture governing the senior unsecured notes includes provisions which, in the event of a change of control, would require the Company to offer to redeem the outstanding senior unsecured notes at a cash purchase price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the senior unsecured notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest. Based on the provisions cited above, a change of control as defined in the indenture is unlikely to occur, but the matter it is not within the Company’s control. If a change of control were to occur, the Company may not have sufficient financial resources available to satisfy all of its obligations. Management is pursuing additional sources of financing to increase liquidity to fund operations.

Subsequent events

On February 1, 2021, the Company announced that it was in discussions with certain holders of the 9.375% Senior Notes due 2022 and key financial partners.

Discussion of Fourth Quarter 2020 Results

The Company has concluded that there are indications for potential impairment of goodwill, property, plant and equipment and deferred tax assets. During the third quarter, the Company registered an impairment relating to the Niagara Falls facility as there are no plans to restart production. During the fourth quarter the Company registered an impairment the spare parts associated to the Niagara Falls facility. Additionally, during the fourth quarter the Company impaired the deferred tax assets related to tax losses in Spain, France and Argentina.The financial results presented for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended as of December 31, 2020 are unaudited and may be subsequently materially adjusted, including as a result of the final conclusions on the impairment analysis, and the impact of the Tribunal Superior de Galicia decision.

Sales Prices & Volumes By Product

During Q4 2020, total product average selling prices decreased by 3.5% versus Q3 2020. Q4 average selling prices of silicon metal increased 0.5%, silicon-based alloys prices decreased 0.4%, and manganese-based alloys prices increased 2.2%.

Sales volumes in Q4 growth by 29.3% versus the prior quarter. Q4 sales volumes of silicon metal increased 7.2%, silicon-based alloys increased 35.1%, and manganese-based alloys increased 45.6% versus Q3 2020.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales was $225.9 million in Q4 2020, an increase from $166.2 million in the prior quarter. Cost of sales as a percentage of sales increased to 70.5% in Q4 2020 versus 63.3% for Q3 2020, the increase is mainly due to higher sales volume, lower sales prices, higher energy prices in Europe, lower fixed cost absorption due to decreased production levels and the negative impact of planned production stop in a plant in Spain.

Other Operating Expenses

Other operating expenses amounted to $47.1 million in Q4 2020, an increase from $26.9 million in the prior quarter. This increase is primarily attributable to the accrual for the purchase of CO2 emission rights, the realized benefit from the removal of liability relating to an R&D project in France in Q3, and the increase in commercial expenses resulting from higher sales volume.

Net Loss Attributable to the Parent

In Q4 2020, net loss attributable to the Parent was $83.4 million, or ($0.49) per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to the Parent of $47.3 million, or ($0.28) per diluted share in Q3 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA

In Q4 2020, adjusted EBITDA was $5.7 million, or 1.8% of sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $22.2 million, or 8.5% of sales in Q3 2020, primarily due to higher costs incurred in Q4 2020.

Forward-looking statements often use forward-looking terminology, including words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “guidance”, “intends”, “likely”, “may”, “plan”, “potential”, “predicts”, “seek”, “target”, “will” and words of similar meaning or the negative thereof.

Forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on information currently available to the Company and assumptions that management believe to be reasonable, but are inherently uncertain. As a result, Ferroglobe’s actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, which are not guarantees of future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control.

Forward-looking financial information and other metrics presented herein represent the Company’s goals and are not intended as guidance or projections for the periods referenced herein or any future periods.

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net profit, adjusted profit per share, working capital and net debt, are non-IFRS financial metrics that, we believe, are pertinent measures of Ferroglobe’s success. Ferroglobe has included these financial metrics to provide supplemental measures of its performance. The Company believes these metrics are important because they eliminate items that have less bearing on the Company’s current and future operating performance and highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures.

* While in previous periods Ferroglobe presented interest paid as cash flows from operating activities, management deems interest paid as among activities that alter the borrowing structure of the Company and therefore most appropriately presented as among financing activities. This change allows for a fairer presentation of cash flow to users of the financial statements. Previous periods have been restated in order to show interest paid as net cash used in financing activities.
