Radius Recycling Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Results


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Nonferrous and Finished Steel Sales Volumes Up Year-Over-Year

Increased Cost Reduction Target by $40 Million

Radius Board Declares Quarterly Dividend

PORTLAND, Ore., April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Radius Recycling, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDUS) today reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2024 ended February 29, 2024.

The Company reported a loss per share from continuing operations of $(1.19) and a net loss of $(34) million. Adjusted EBITDA was $3 million and adjusted loss per share from continuing operations was $(1.04).

Market conditions during the second quarter remained challenging, as tight supply flows for recycled metals and unusually wet winter weather impacted sales volumes and metals spreads for both recycled metals and finished steel. Scrap generation remained constrained due to persistently low levels of manufacturing activity in the U.S. After strengthening in the early part of the quarter driven by restocking, market conditions for ferrous recycled metals softened due to lower global demand including as a result of continued elevated levels of Chinese steel exports.

Ferrous sales volumes decreased by 15% sequentially due to the lower supply flows and delays of certain bulk shipments at the end of the quarter. Nonferrous sales volumes decreased by 3% sequentially, but increased by 7% year-over-year supported by additional production from the Company's advanced nonferrous recovery technologies and platform expansion. Finished steel sales volumes increased by 5% year-over-year, reflecting the continued strength of non-residential and infrastructure demand in the Western U.S. Sequentially, finished steel sales volumes decreased by 11% due to seasonally lower construction demand exacerbated by a prolonged period of rain on the West Coast.

During the second quarter, the Company implemented a plan to deliver $40 million in aggregate annual benefits by reducing selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expense by 10% and increasing production cost efficiencies. These benefits are in addition to the $30 million in annual benefits previously announced that were substantially implemented in the second quarter.

Tamara Lundgren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said,“While the near-term market conditions for recycled metals are challenging amid cyclical headwinds, we continue to move forward with our strategic initiatives to strengthen our Company and position ourselves to benefit from an improvement in market conditions and positive structural demand tailwinds. During the quarter we significantly expanded our fiscal 2024 cost savings and productivity improvement program and saw benefits from our ongoing investments in advanced metal recovery technology systems and our recycling services platform."

Ms. Lundgren continued, "Scrap supply flows should benefit from a decline in U.S. interest rates and a recovery in global manufacturing activity. Additionally, the long-term structural demand for recycled metals remains positive, supported by the increased focus on decarbonization, the transition to low-carbon technologies, and the anticipated demand associated with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act, including Buy Clean provisions."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2024 Financial Review and Analysis

Average net selling prices for ferrous recycled metals increased by 8% sequentially, benefiting from the strengthening in global prices in the early part of the quarter driven by restocking, before softening due to lower demand including as a result of continued elevated levels of Chinese steel exports. Average net selling prices for nonferrous recycled metals increased by 3% sequentially and for finished steel products remained flat sequentially.

Results for the second quarter include a benefit from average inventory accounting of approximately $2 per ferrous ton, compared to a detriment of $1 per ferrous ton in the first quarter of fiscal 2024. The Company recognized insurance recoveries of $2 million in the second quarter, compared to $4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2024, in connection with previously submitted claims related to certain property damage and business interruption matters that had occurred in prior periods.

During the second quarter, the Company implemented a plan to reduce SG&A expense by 10% and increase production cost efficiencies to deliver $40 million in aggregate annual benefits. The new measures include reductions in headcount and other employee-related expenses, as well as decreases in non-trade procurement spend, transportation and logistics, and other outside services. Approximately half of the targeted quarterly run-rate benefits from these initiatives are expected to be achieved in the third quarter, with substantially all of the remainder by the end of the fiscal year. The Company expects to incur related restructuring charges and other exit-related costs of approximately $6 million, of which $3 million were incurred during the second quarter.

The second quarter had an operating cash outflow of $55 million, reflecting an increase in net working capital due primarily to the timing of shipments and collections. At the end of the quarter, total debt was $374 million and net debt was $360 million.

Capital expenditures were $15 million in the second quarter. The Company expects fiscal 2024 capital expenditures to be approximately $80 million, including the completion of our nonferrous technology initiatives and investments to support recycling services expansion.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter was an expense of 4% on GAAP results and 8% on adjusted non-GAAP results, both including the recognition of a valuation allowance charge of $2 million on deferred tax assets in one of the Company's tax jurisdictions.

During the second quarter, the Company returned capital to shareholders through its 120th consecutive quarterly dividend.

Declaration of Quarterly Dividend

The Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.1875 per common share, payable May 6, 2024 to shareholders of record on April 22, 2024. The Company has paid a dividend every quarter since going public in November 1993.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains performance based on adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to Radius shareholders, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA per ferrous ton, and adjusted selling, general, and administrative expense which are non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. As required by SEC rules, the Company has provided a reconciliation of these measures for each period discussed to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure. Management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures adds a meaningful presentation of our results from business operations excluding adjustments for restructuring charges and other exit-related activities, asset impairment charges, amortization of capitalized cloud computing implementation costs, charges for legacy environmental matters (net of recoveries), business development costs not related to ongoing operations including pre-acquisition expenses, and the income tax benefit allocated to these adjustments, items which are not related to underlying business operational performance, and improves the period-to-period comparability of our results from business operations. We believe that presenting debt, net of cash is useful to investors as a measure of our leverage, as cash and cash equivalents can be used, among other things, to repay indebtedness. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures.

(1) For the three months ended February 29, 2024 and the six months ended February 29, 2024 and February 28, 2023, asset impairment charges included $272 thousand ($0.01 per share), $491 thousand ($0.02 per share) and $4 million ($0.14 per share), respectively, reported within "Other loss, net" on the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
(2) Amortization of cloud computing software costs consists of expense recognized in cost of goods sold and selling, general, and administrative expense resulting from amortization of capitalized implementation costs for cloud computing IT systems. This expense is not included in depreciation and amortization. No amortization of cloud computing software costs was incurred prior to the first quarter of fiscal 2024; therefore, prior period Adjusted EBITDA amounts are not impacted.
