Hexion Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

November 12, 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2019--

Hexion Inc. (“Hexion” or the “Company”) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“While on a run rate basis we were essentially on track relative to our 2019 target, our third quarter results reflected increased headwinds in our base epoxy resins and North American forest product resins businesses,” said Craig A. Rogerson, Chairman, President and CEO. “To address these trends, we continue to aggressively streamline our organizational structure and began implementing our previously announced $20 million in cost reductions in the third quarter of 2019. Supported by our strong balance sheet, we are also increasing our investment in productivity projects and strategically investing in our manufacturing footprint by expanding our adhesive resins capacity in Australia. In addition, we are pleased to have successfully completed construction of our new Application Development Center in Shanghai as we continue to invest in our research and development infrastructure to further accelerate growth in our specialty portfolio.”

Mr. Rogerson added: “Looking ahead to the fourth quarter of 2019, we expect year-over-year gains in Segment EBITDA compared to the prior year, although we don’t anticipate achieving the fiscal year 2019 results previously forecast in the Restructuring Support Agreement due to the challenging trends impacting certain of our end markets. With a new capital structure and considering the specialty nature of our overall portfolio, we are well positioned to drive long-term growth in the adhesives, coatings, and composites markets. Going forward, we also anticipate structural improvements in our net working capital as we look to normalize our contractual terms with our suppliers due to our strengthened balance sheet. Even in the face of economic volatility, we anticipate generating significant free cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2019 and in the long term. Finally, we continue to explore optimization of our portfolio and the use of cash generated by our operations to further reduce debt.”

Third Quarter 2019 Results

Total net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 were $836 million, a decrease of 12% compared with $952 million in the prior year period. Volume decreases negatively impacted net sales by $54 million, which was primarily due to weaker demand in the Company’s North American resins business due to customer mill closures and competitive pricing pressures, as well as in our base epoxy resins and phenolic resins businesses due to overall weakness in the market, primarily in the automotive and construction industries. Pricing negatively impacted sales by $46 million due primarily to softer market conditions in the Company’s base epoxy resins business and methanol price decreases contractually passed through to customers across many of our businesses. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted net sales by $16 million due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against various foreign currencies in the third quarter of 2019 compared to the third quarter of 2018. Net income for the Predecessor Period of July 1, 2019 was $3,054 million and net loss for the Successor Period of July 2, 2019 through September 30, 2019 was $43 million. Total Segment EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $117 million, a decrease of $11 million compared with the prior year period, driven primarily by weaker margins in the Company’s base epoxy resins business, partially offset by the global forest products businesses and cost reduction actions.

Fresh Start Accounting

As a result of emerging from Chapter 11 on July 1, 2019 (“Effective Date”) and qualifying for the application of fresh-start accounting, at the Effective Date, Hexion’s assets and liabilities were recorded at their estimated fair values which, in some cases, are significantly different than amounts included in the Company’s financial statements prior to the Effective Date. Accordingly, Hexion’s financial condition and results of operations on and after the Effective Date are not directly comparable to our financial condition and results of operations prior to the Effective Date. References to “Successor” or “Successor Company” relate to the financial position and results of operations of the reorganized Company subsequent to the Effective Date. References to “Predecessor” or “Predecessor Company” refer to the financial position and results of operations of the Company on or before the Effective Date.

The combined results (referenced as “Non-GAAP Combined” or “Combined”) for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 and first nine months ended September 30, 2019, which Hexion refers to herein as results for the “Three Months Ended September 30, 2019” and “Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019” represent the sum of the reported amounts for the Predecessor period July 1 combined with the Successor period July 2, 2019 through September 30, 2019 and the Predecessor period from January 1, 2019 through July 1, 2019 combined with the Successor period from July 2, 2019 through September 30, 2019, respectively. These Combined results are not considered to be prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and have not been prepared as pro forma results under applicable regulations. The Non-GAAP Combined operating results may not reflect the actual results the Company would have achieved absent its emergence from bankruptcy and may not be indicative of future results.

Segment Results

Following are net sales and Segment EBITDA by reportable segment for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 and 2018. See “Non-U.S. GAAP Measures” for further information regarding Segment EBITDA and a reconciliation of net (loss) income to Segment EBITDA.

Intersegment sales are not significant and as such are eliminated within the selling segment.

Forest Products Resins reported net sales of $367 million in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 15% from third quarter 2018 net sales of $431 million. The $64 million decrease in net sales as compared to the prior year reflected volume declines of $34 million in the Company’s North American resins businesses due to weaker demand driven by competitive pricing pressures and customer mill closures, and decreases in certain derivatives within our North American formaldehyde business driven by softness in the oil and gas markets in Western Canada. Pricing negatively impacted net sales by $25 million, which was primarily due to methanol price decreases contractually passed through to customers across many of our businesses, and foreign currency translation negatively impacted sales by $5 million. Segment EBITDA for Forest Products Resins was $84 million, an increase of 11% from third quarter 2018 results of $76 million. The $8 million increase in Segment EBITDA as compared to the prior year was primarily driven by previously recorded deferred contract revenue that was accelerated during the period as a result of the application of fresh start accounting, partially offset by softer volumes.

Epoxy, Phenolic and Coating Resins reported net sales of $469 million in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 10% from third quarter 2018 net sales of $521 million. Pricing negatively impacted net sales by $21 million primarily due to softer market conditions in our base epoxy resins business as compared to the third quarter of 2018. Volumes negatively impacted net sales by $20 million, which was primarily related to volume decreases in our base epoxy resins and phenolic specialty resins businesses driven by overall weakness in the market, primarily in the automotive and construction industries. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted net sales by $11 million. Segment EBITDA for Epoxy, Phenolic and Coating Resins was $50 million, a decrease of 24% from third quarter 2018 results of $66 million. The $16 million decrease in Segment EBITDA as compared to the prior year was primarily due to the same factors impacting net sales.

Corporate and Other is primarily corporate, general and administrative expenses that are not allocated to the other segments, such as shared service and administrative functions, and unallocated foreign exchange gains and losses not allocated to other segments. Corporate and Other charges in the third quarter of 2019 increased by $3 million compared to the third quarter of 2018 due primarily to the timing of variable compensation costs.

Strategic Asia Pacific Region Investment

Hexion has successfully completed construction of its new Application Development Center (“ADC”) in Shanghai as part of its global efforts to further strengthen its industry-leading research and development and technical services capabilities. The new 4,800 square meter ADC will support new product development and customer collaboration to accelerate growth in waterborne coatings, composite and coatings applications. The new ADC is one of 24 global research and development centers located strategically near Hexion’s global customers and in proximity to large end markets.

Strengthening Global Manufacturing Capabilities

Hexion announced its intention to add new phenolic resin capacity as the latest expansion of its adhesive business at its Brimbank, Australia site. The expansion is intended to meet the growing demand for phenolic resins that can serve as a fire-resistant cladding material in a variety of commercial, institutional and residential applications. Construction of the new reactor and associated infrastructure is expected to begin in early 2020 and come online in the first quarter of 2021. Hexion is the main phenolic resin producer in Australia. Hexion’s regional locations include: Brimbank; Brisbane, Australia; a joint venture in Perth, Australia; Hornby, New Zealand; and Mountview, New Zealand.

Successfully Completed Balance Sheet Restructuring

On July 1, 2019, Hexion successfully completed its balance sheet de-leveraging and emerged from Chapter 11. As a result of this process, Hexion has reduced its debt by more than $2.0 billion, received an infusion of $300 million in equity capital through a rights offering and raised approximately $2.0 billion in exit financing. Throughout the bankruptcy court-supervised process, Hexion’s global operations continued uninterrupted, providing customers with high-quality products and service. The de-leveraging plan provided for payment in full to the Company’s trade creditors.

Global Restructuring Programs

During the first nine months of 2019, the Company achieved $13 million of cost savings related to its restructuring programs. In addition, Hexion recently identified approximately $20 million in additional cost savings primarily related to selling, general and administrative cost reductions. At September 30, 2019, Hexion had approximately $18 million of total in-process savings that it expects to realize over the next 12 months.

Anticipated Realignment of Operating Segments to Drive Growth and Greater Operating Efficiencies

As part of the company’s continuing efforts to drive growth and greater operating efficiencies, Hexion is reviewing its reporting segments to align around its two growth platforms: adhesives; and coatings and composites. The Company expects to change its operating segments to reflect how it organizes the Company to make operating decisions and assess business performance, which is anticipated to impact segment reporting effective January 1, 2020. The new structure is expected to consist of the following businesses:

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At June 30, 2019, Hexion had total debt of approximately $3.9 billion. Following the refinancing of its capital structure and emergence from the Chapter 11 proceedings on July 1, 2019, the Company’s debt as of September 30, 2019 totaled 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. During the Company’s successor period of July 2, 2019 to September 30, 2019, Hexion generated $25 million of cash from operations after paying $56 million of prepetition payables. In addition, at September 30, 2019, the Company had $442 million in liquidity. 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 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 (loss) income 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 Schedule 4 to this release for reconciliation of net (loss) income to Segment 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. As the Company is highly leveraged, it 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 5 to this release for reconciliation of net income to Pro Forma EBITDA and the Fixed Charges Ratio.
