Hexion Inc. Announces First Quarter 2021 Results

·25-min read

First Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Net sales from continuing operations of $753 million, an increase of 10% compared with $687 million in the prior year period

  • Net income of $11 million

  • Segment EBITDA from continuing operations of $114 million compared to $73 million in the prior year period. Both periods reflect the treatment of the pending divestiture as discontinued operations.

  • Liquidity of $483 million

  • Hexion completed the sale of its Phenolic Specialty Resin, Hexamine and European-based Forest Products Resins businesses for approximately $425 million including cash consideration of $304 million on April 30, 2021.

Hexion Inc. ("Hexion" or the "Company") today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

"Our first quarter 2021 results demonstrated strength across the board as Segment EBITDA increased by $41 million, or 56 percent compared to the prior year," said Craig Rogerson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This is the third consecutive quarter we’ve posted solid year-over-year improvements in Segment EBITDA as our product portfolio is well positioned to benefit from the improving demand we are seeing from new home construction, remodeling, wind energy, and general commercial construction, as well as the general economic recovery from the pandemic. We were also pleased to drive a significant increase in our Segment EBITDA margins in the first quarter, which exceeded 15%, and reflects our multi-year efforts to strategically invest in highly-targeted growth capital expenditure projects and align our portfolio with more sustainable products. For example, in 2020, about 20 percent of our sales came from new products that were developed within the last five years, such as our recently-introduced ArmorBuilt™ fire resistant wrap, and we are working closely with our research and development teams to drive this percentage even higher over the next several years. In addition, our first quarter results, while very strong, were negatively impacted by the winter storms and do not reflect any potential insurance recovery proceeds in the period. Our associates also remain focused on operating our plants safely by following closely all the proper COVID-19 protocols, and I’d like to recognize their ongoing dedication to serving our valued customers."

Mr. Rogerson added: "We were also pleased to complete the sale of our Phenolic Specialty Resin, Hexamine and European-based Forest Products Resins businesses at the end of April. The proceeds from the transaction further improves our financial flexibility and liquidity profile as we used a portion of the proceeds to repay EUR 125 million of the EUR-denominated Senior Secured Term Loan in early May. We are encouraged by the underlying demand trends we are seeing. We expect continued strong progress and a robust second quarter 2021. Going forward, supported by tail winds in multiple key end markets and a track record of controlling costs, we are focused on driving year-over-year earnings growth, generating strong levels of free cash flow, and increasing stakeholder value through opportunistic share repurchases and debt reduction."

Hexion Completes Strategic Divestiture

On April 30, 2021, the Company completed the sale the sale of its Phenolic Specialty Resin (PSR), Hexamine and European-based Forest Products Resins businesses for approximately $425 million to Black Diamond and Investindustrial. The Company received gross cash consideration for the Held for Sale Business in the amount of $304 million. In addition, the Buyer assumed approximately $31 million of certain liabilities, net of preliminary working capital and other closing adjustments as part of the Purchase Agreement. A subsequent post-closing adjustment to the initial cash considerations will be made in accordance with the Purchase Agreement.

Hexion expects to use the net proceeds to invest in its business and reduced its borrowings under its Senior Secured Term Loan, in accordance with its credit agreement.

First Quarter 2021 Results

In January 2020, Hexion updated its reportable segments to align around two growth platforms: Adhesives; and Coatings and Composites. The Adhesives Segment is organized around Construction Adhesives, Industrial Adhesives, and Intermediates and Derivatives, while the Coatings and Composites Segment is organized around Composites, Performance Coatings, and Base Chemicals. Corporate and Other continues to be a reportable segment.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company reclassified the assets and liabilities of our Held for Sale Business as held for sale on the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and reported the results of its operations for the three months and year ended December 31, 2020 as "Loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes" on the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Amounts for prior periods have similarly been retrospectively reclassified for all periods presented. See Schedules 9 and 10 for additional financial information for our Held for Sale Business.

Total net sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 were $753 million, an increase of 10% compared with $687 million in the prior year period. Pricing positively impacted sales by $64 million due primarily to raw material price increases contractually passed through to customers across many businesses, as well as favorable product mix and improved market conditions in our base epoxy resins and specialty epoxy resins businesses. Foreign currency translation positively impacted net sales by $13 million due to the strengthening of various foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. Volumes negatively impacted net sales by $11 million, primarily due to the impact of Winter Storm Uri in the U.S. Gulf Coast on several of our businesses, offset by volume increases in our specialty epoxy resins and global resins businesses.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $11 million compared to a net loss of $59 million in the prior year period. Total Segment EBITDA from continuing operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $114 million, an increase of $41 million compared with the prior year period, or 56 percent, reflecting strong gains across both the Adhesives and Coatings and Composites segments. First quarter 2021 was also negatively impacted by $6 million of repair costs and $12 million of lost volume due to temporary manufacturing outages caused by winter storm Uri in the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2021, total debt was approximately $1.8 billion and consisted primarily of the Company’s approximately $1.2 billion Senior Secured Term Loans due 2026 and $450 million Senior Notes due 2027. At March 31, 2021, the Company had $483 million in liquidity, including $131 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents. Hexion has no upcoming maturities on its term loan or notes until 2026. Hexion expects to have adequate liquidity to fund its ongoing operations for the next twelve months from cash on its balance sheet, cash flows provided by operating activities and amounts available for borrowings under its credit facilities.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

Segment EBITDA

Segment EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted to exclude certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses. Segment EBITDA is an important measure used by the Company's senior management and board of directors to evaluate operating results and allocate capital resources among segments. Corporate and Other primarily represents certain corporate, general and administrative expenses that are not allocated to the other segments. Segment EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net income (loss) or other results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Segment EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. See Schedules 4 and 5 to this release for reconciliation of net income (loss) to Segment EBITDA.

Pro Forma EBITDA

Pro Forma EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for certain non-cash and certain non-recurring items and other adjustments calculated on a pro forma basis, including the expected future cost savings from business optimization programs or other programs and the expected future impact of acquisitions, in each case as determined under the governing debt instrument. The Company believes that including the supplemental adjustments that are made to calculate Pro Forma EBITDA provides additional information to investors about the Company’s ability to comply with its financial covenants and to obtain additional debt in the future. Pro Forma EBITDA and Fixed Charges are not defined terms under U.S. GAAP. Pro Forma EBITDA is not a measure of financial condition, liquidity or profitability, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP or operating cash flows determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, Pro Forma EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not take into account certain items such as interest and principal payments on our indebtedness, depreciation and amortization expense (because the Company uses capital assets, depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate revenue), working capital needs, tax payments (because the payment of taxes is part of our operations, it is a necessary element of our costs and ability to operate), non-recurring expenses and capital expenditures. Fixed Charges under the Indenture governing the Senior Notes due 2027 should not be considered an alternative to interest expense. See Schedule 6 to this release for reconciliation of net loss to Pro Forma EBITDA and the calculation of the Fixed Charges Ratio.

Free cash flow

Free cash flow is a liquidity measure used by the Company and is defined by the Company as net cash provided by (used in) operations, less capital expenditures on property, plant and equipment. We believe that free cash flow provides useful information to management, investors, analysts and other parties in evaluating the Company's liquidity and credit quality assessment because it provides an indication of the long-term cash generating ability of our business. See Schedule 7 to this release for the Company's free cash flow by quarter.

Net debt

Net debt is defined by the Company as total debt less cash and cash equivalents. We believe that net debt provides useful information to management, investors, analysts and other parties in evaluating changes to the Company's capital structure and credit quality assessment. See Schedule 8 to this release for the Company's net debt by quarter.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of and made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In addition, our management may from time to time make oral forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "project," "might," "plan," "estimate," "may," "will," "could," "should," "seek" or "intend" and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future events and conditions and are based on currently available financial, economic and competitive data and our current business plans. Actual results could vary materially depending on risks and uncertainties that may affect our operations, markets, services, prices and other factors as discussed in the Risk Factors section of our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). While we believe our assumptions are reasonable, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements as it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and it is impossible for us to anticipate all factors that could affect our actual results. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, a weakening of global economic and financial conditions, interruptions in the supply of or increased cost of raw materials, the loss of, or difficulties with the further realization of, cost savings in connection with our strategic initiatives, the impact of our indebtedness, our failure to comply with financial covenants under our credit facilities or other debt, pricing actions by our competitors that could affect our operating margins, changes in governmental regulations and related compliance and litigation costs, uncertainties related to COVID-19 and the impact of our responses to it and the other factors listed in the Risk Factors section of our SEC filings. For a more detailed discussion of these and other risk factors, see the Risk Factors section of our most recent filings made with the SEC. All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice. The forward-looking statements made by us speak only as of the date on which they are made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.
