HIGHLIGHTS

  • Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $52 million, best result over the last eight quarters
  • Fifth consecutive quarter of sequential sales growth for Consumer Products segment
  • Fourth quarter operating cash flow up 50% versus the fourth quarter of 2018; 50 basis point reduction in net leverage ratio

OVERALL RESULTS

For the fourth quarter of 2019, Clearwater Paper reported net sales of $436 million, up from $429 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2018. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to a net loss in the fourth quarter of 2018 of $188 million, or $11.39 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, the company’s adjusted income in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $6 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to fourth quarter 2018 adjusted income of $7 million, or $0.45 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $52 million compared to the fourth quarter 2018 of $47 million.

For the year ended 2019, Clearwater Paper reported net sales of $1.8 billion, up from $1.7 billion reported for the year ended 2018. The company reported a net loss for the year of $6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $144 million or $8.72 per diluted share in 2018. On a non-GAAP basis, our adjusted net loss for 2019 was $4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share as compared to adjusted income of $42 million, or $2.54 per diluted share for 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $167 million compared to $182 million for 2018, this decrease was primarily due to planned maintenance outages.

“We had a strong finish to 2019 due to lower input pulp and fiber costs in the fourth quarter, and lower maintenance costs and expense timing. We also had a strong sales quarter for tissue, which grew sequentially for the fifth consecutive quarter,” said Linda K. Massman, president and chief executive officer. “In addition, our new Shelby, North Carolina facility is producing to quality specifications for both ultra and premium tissue. We also commissioned the polysulfide reactor, which is the final component of our pulp optimization project in Lewiston. Throughout the year, we intend to focus on continuing to improve our operational capabilities to ensure we are well-positioned to generate cash flow to de-lever our balance sheet.”

FOURTH QUARTER2019SEGMENT PERFORMANCE

Consumer Products

Net sales in the Consumer Products segment were $231 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, up 8% compared to fourth quarter 2018 net sales of $213 million. This increase was due to higher retail tissue volumes sold offset by slightly lower prices due to mix. This is the fifth consecutive quarter of sequential sales growth for the Consumer Products segment. Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $2 million, compared to $1 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increased operating income was primarily due to higher sales volumes and lower pulp costs offset by higher depreciation expense resulting from the completion of the Shelby facility expansion. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $20 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, up from $16 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Tissue Sales Volumes and Prices:

  • Total tissue volumes sold were 88,141 tons in the fourth quarter of 2019, an increase of 7,161 tons or 9% compared to 80,980 tons in the fourth quarter of 2018. Retail volumes represented 90% of total volumes sold in the fourth quarter of 2019, up from 86% in the fourth quarter of 2018. Converted product cases shipped increased 14% to 13.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to the 11.6 million cases shipped in the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Average tissue net selling prices decreased 1.3% to $2,593 per ton in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $2,627 per ton in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to changes in mix.

Pulp and Paperboard

Net sales in the Pulp and Paperboard segment were $205 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, down 5% compared to fourth quarter 2018 net sales of $216 million. The decrease was due to lower sales volumes partially offset by higher paperboard prices from previously announced increases. Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $35 million compared to $32 million for the fourth quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $44 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $41 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in operating income and Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to improved operating performance and lower input costs.

Paperboard Sales Volumes and Prices:

  • Paperboard sales volumes were 202,102 tons in the fourth quarter of 2019, a decrease of 7% compared to 218,322 tons in the fourth quarter of 2018.
  • Paperboard average net selling prices increased 2.7% to $1,009 per ton for the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $982 per ton in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the company presents certain non-GAAP financial information for the fourth quarter and full year of 2019 and 2018, including adjusted income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA. Because these amounts are not in accordance with GAAP, reconciliations to net income (loss) as determined in accordance with GAAP are included in the tables at the end of this press release. The company presents these non-GAAP amounts because management believes they assist investors and analysts in comparing the company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. In addition, the company uses Adjusted EBITDA: (i) as factors in evaluating management’s performance when determining incentive compensation, (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of the company’s business strategies, and (iii) because the company’s credit agreement and the indentures governing the company’s outstanding notes use metrics similar to Adjusted EBITDA to measure the company’s compliance with certain covenants.

AdjustedEBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to evaluate the cash generating capacity of the company. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net income. Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss) adjusted for net interest expense (including debt retirement costs), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-operating pension and post retirement costs and other operating charges. It should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings computed under GAAP.

Other operating charges, net consist of significant amounts unrelated to ongoing core operating activities.
