Weyerhaeuser reports third quarter results

-- Earnings increased approximately 45 percent compared with second quarter

-- Closed sale of liquid packaging board business for $285 million

-- Repurchased $306 million of common shares, completing $2 billion accelerated commitment

Oct 28, 2016

SEATTLE, Oct. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE: WY) today reported third quarter net earnings to common shareholders of $227 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.7 billion. This compares with net earnings of $180 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, on net sales of $1.4 billion for the same period last year.

Third quarter results include after-tax earnings of $65 million from discontinued operations, which included a net gain of $41 million on the divestiture of the liquid packaging board business. Third quarter results also include net after-tax charges of $10 million from special items. Excluding discontinued operations and special items, the company reported net earnings of $172 million, or $0.23 per diluted share for the third quarter. This compares with net earnings from continuing operations before special items of $121 million for the same period last year and $130 million for second quarter of 2016.

"Our employees delivered strong results in the quarter as Timberlands drove improved performance through merger synergies and Wood Products reported its best third quarter in over a decade," said Doyle R. Simons, president and CEO. "We also completed our $2 billion accelerated share repurchase and closed the sale of our liquid packaging business. We remain committed to driving value for shareholders through a focused portfolio, industry leading performance, and disciplined capital allocation. The integration with Plum Creek continues to go very well and we are confident we will fully capture the cost and operational synergies from the merger."

WEYERHAEUSER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Weyerhaeuser merged with Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. (Plum Creek) on February 19, 2016. The financial statements presented within this release do not include Plum Creek financial results for any period prior to the February 19, 2016 merger date.

(1) In the first quarter of 2016, Weyerhaeuser issued approximately 279 million shares in conjunction with the Plum Creek merger. During 2016, Weyerhaeuser has repurchased approximately 68 million shares to complete our $2 billion accelerated repurchase commitment, part of the $2.5 billion repurchase authorization that was announced in conjunction with the merger transaction. In the third quarter of 2016, the company issued approximately 23 million shares as a result of the conversion of its mandatory convertible preference shares. At the end of the third quarter of 2016, the company had approximately 748 million common shares outstanding.

(2) After-tax special items for the third quarter of 2016 represent $10 million of Plum Creek merger-related costs.  There were no special items in the third quarter of 2015.  After-tax special items from continuing operations for second quarter 2016 were $11 million.

(3) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to evaluate the performance of the company. Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is operating income from continuing operations, adjusted for depreciation, depletion, amortization, basis in real estate sold, pension and postretirement costs not allocated to business segments and special items. Adjusted EBITDA excludes results from joint ventures. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from and is not intended to represent an alternative to our GAAP results. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP earnings is included within this release.

3Q 2016 Performance - Sales volumes for Southern and Northern logs increased seasonally. Western fee harvest volumes declined and average realizations for Western logs were comparable to the second quarter, as improved domestic realizations were offset by slightly lower realizations for export logs. Silviculture and road costs increased seasonally, and the business benefited from merger-related synergies and operational excellence initiatives.

4Q 2016 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser anticipates modestly higher earnings and Adjusted EBITDA from the Timberlands segment in the fourth quarter. In the West, the company expects slightly higher realizations for domestic and export logs, partially offset by lower fee harvest volumes. In the South, the company anticipates increased fee harvest volumes and seasonally lower silviculture expense.

4Q 2016 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects improved earnings and significantly higher Adjusted EBITDA from increased Real Estate sales in the fourth quarter.

3Q 2016 Performance - Average sales realizations for oriented strand board increased 7 percent and lumber sales realizations rose slightly compared to the second quarter. Lumber sales volumes and operating rates were slightly lower and log costs for Canadian and Western mills increased. Manufacturing costs for oriented strand board improved due to operational excellence initiatives and higher operating rates.

4Q 2016 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects seasonally lower earnings and Adjusted EBITDA from the Wood Products segment in the fourth quarter compared with the third quarter due to lower sales volumes across most product lines and seasonally weaker average sales realizations for oriented strand board. Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA, however, should be nearly double the fourth quarter of 2015.

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

Discontinued operations include the company's Cellulose Fibers segment, which consists of pulp mills, a liquid packaging board facility, and a printing papers joint venture. The sale of the liquid packaging board business closed on August 31, 2016. These results correspond to assets and liabilities that have been classified as discontinued operations on our balance sheet.

*Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to evaluate the performance of the company. Beginning in the first quarter of 2016, we revised our definition of Adjusted EBITDA to add back the basis of real estate sold. We have revised our prior-period presentation to conform to our current reporting.

 

Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is operating income from continuing operations adjusted for depreciation, depletion, amortization, basis of real estate sold, pension and postretirement costs not allocated to business segments and special items. Adjusted EBITDA excludes results from joint ventures.

 

Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from and is not intended to represent an alternative to our GAAP results.
