First quarter includes after-tax charges of $369 million for special items, primarily consisting of a previously announced noncash settlement charge related to the transfer of pension assets and liabilities through the purchase of a group annuity contract. Excluding special items, the company reported net earnings of $80 million, or 11 cents per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019. This compares with net earnings before special items of $275 million for the same period last year and $70 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $365 million compared with $544 million for the first quarter of last year and $346 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

"I am proud of our first quarter results, as we delivered strong operating performance, improved financial results in each of our businesses compared with the fourth quarter, repurchased $60 million of common shares, refinanced an upcoming debt maturity, and further reduced our pension liabilities," said Devin W. Stockfish, president and chief executive officer. "Looking forward, we anticipate modest year over year housing growth and expect that building activity will accelerate with improved weather and continued macroeconomic stability. We remain focused on driving industry-leading performance and delivering superior value for our shareholders."

1Q 2019 Performance - Earnings and Adjusted EBITDA improved in the first quarter compared with the fourth quarter. In the West, average sales realizations for domestic and export logs decreased, and export log sales volumes declined seasonally. This was more than offset by lower costs, primarily attributable to decreased road and forestry spending. In the South, average log sales realizations increased approximately 3 percent and fee harvest volumes declined due to seasonally lower stumpage sales.

2Q 2019 Outlook -  Weyerhaeuser anticipates second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA will be lower than the first quarter. In the West, favorable domestic log sales realizations will be more than offset by lower export sales volumes due to the timing of vessel sailings. Average Southern log sales realizations are expected to be comparable to the first quarter. Western and Southern silviculture activity and related costs are expected to increase seasonally. In the North, fee harvest volumes will decrease significantly due to spring break-up.

1Q 2019 Performance - Real Estate sales increased compared with the fourth quarter due to a 22 percent increase in the number of acres sold. Average price per acre was similar to the fourth quarter, and average land basis was modestly lower. Energy & Natural Resources earnings and Adjusted EBITDA were comparable to the fourth quarter.

2Q 2019 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser anticipates second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA from the Real Estate, Energy & Natural Resources segment will be lower than the first quarter, but significantly higher than second quarter 2018 due to the timing of Real Estate transactions. The company now expects full year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA of $270 million.

1Q 2019 Performance - First quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA increased significantly compared with the fourth quarter due to substantially lower log and fiber costs, seasonally higher operating rates and improved manufacturing costs across all product lines. This was partially offset by a 12 percent decrease in average sales realizations for oriented strand board. Average sales realizations for lumber and engineered wood products improved slightly. Sales volumes for lumber and oriented strand board increased seasonally, and sales volumes for engineered wood products decreased.

2Q 2019 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser anticipates higher second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA compared with the first quarter. The company expects seasonally higher sales volumes and improved operating rates across all product lines.

(1)  In January 2019, we changed the way we report our Canadian Forestlands operations, which are primarily operated to supply Weyerhaeuser's Canadian Wood Products manufacturing facilities. As a result, we no longer report related intersegment sales in the Timberlands segment and we will now record the minimal associated third-party log sales in the Wood Products segment. These collective transactions did not contribute any earnings to the Timberlands segment. We have conformed prior period presentation with the current period.
