A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measure is included below in this news release.

Management Commentary

Eddie Lehner, Ryerson’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “To all my Ryerson colleagues, thank you for driving Ryerson safely and brilliantly forward alongside the myriad of unique frictions and fractures present in the world and in our operating environment that permeated the past quarter. We harmonized, monetized and modernized throughout the quarter by exceptionally executing our plan while demonstrating quick reflexes and making smart adjustments given the many variables in play. During the quarter, we began work on two new state-of-the art facilities in Centralia, Washington, and in University Park, Illinois, both largely funded via the monetization of assets at their former sites. On the M&A front, we acquired Specialty Metals Processing, a toll processor located in Stow, Ohio, which enhances our strong stainless and specialty metals franchise. We also furthered our financial transformation through the redemption of $150 million of our 2028 Senior Secured Notes and the reduction of our legacy liability risk through annuitizing approximately $200 million in pension obligations. Given our continued decreases in our fixed cash commitments and legacy liabilities, we are pleased to announce that Ryerson’s Board of Directors has approved an increase of one-half cent to our quarterly dividend. This increase reflects our confidence in our ability to generate further shareholder value as we execute on our vision of an intelligent network of interconnected industrial metals service centers providing great customer experiences at speed, scale and value-add.”

Market Commentary

Pricing across carbon steel products continued to increase throughout the third quarter, with CRU hot-rolled prices up over $285 per short ton in September versus June, but plateaued in the beginning weeks of the fourth quarter. LME nickel and aluminum commodity indexes also appreciated in the third quarter as compared to the second quarter, gaining 8% and 16% respectively. At this point, given underlying supportive demand conditions and gradually improving metals availability, Ryerson anticipates that carbon prices will begin to incrementally normalize in the fourth quarter while aluminum and nickel maintain relative strength.

Ryerson noted sequential shipment declines on a per day basis in most of its end-markets in North America in the third quarter as accumulating and layered constraints in customer supply chains deferred underlying demand. Metal fabrication and machine shop and ground transportation sectors reported shipments softening, though demand signals in these markets, including Class 8 build forecasts, remain supportive and extending into future periods. Ryerson’s oil & gas sector, in contrast, saw a quarter-over-quarter improvement in North American shipments per day. Overall, supply cannot yet meet present and trending demand.

Third Quarter Results

Ryerson achieved revenues of $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 11.0% compared to $1.4 billion for the second quarter of 2021, with average selling prices 19.6% higher and tons shipped 7.2% lower. Gross margin expanded sequentially to 23.1% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to 18.1% in the second quarter of 2021. Included in the third quarter of 2021 cost of goods sold was LIFO expense of $102 million, compared to LIFO expense of $105 million in second quarter. Excluding the impact of LIFO, gross margin expanded to a record 29.6% from 25.5%, respectively. Ryerson achieved expense leverage in the third quarter of 2021 as warehousing, delivery, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percent of sales was 11.4% compared to 12.6% in the second quarter of 2021.

Net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation for the third quarter of 2021 was $50 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation of $113 million, or $2.91 per diluted share in the previous quarter. Included in the third quarter 2021 net income is a $98 million non-cash, non-recurring settlement charge related to the annuitization of $206 million of our pension liabilities and a $6 million loss on retirement of debt. Excluding these items and the associated income taxes, adjusted net income for the third quarter was $127 million, or $3.25 per diluted share and compares to $48 million, or $1.24, of adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share for the previous quarter. For the second consecutive quarter, Ryerson generated record Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO of $301 million. This compares to the Company’s previous record of $197 million which was achieved in the second quarter of 2021.

During the quarter, we announced the establishment of a new facility in Centralia, Washington. We also announced our acquisition of Specialty Metals Processing, a toll processor located in Stow, Ohio, that will complement our strength in stainless products and add to the value-added capabilities offered to our customers. Lastly, we announced the construction of a new build-to-suit Central Steel & Wire (“CS&W”) facility in University Park, Illinois that will serve as the future operational hub of the CS&W business. Each of these investments individually and taken together offer enhanced value-added capabilities and ever better customer experiences.

Liquidity & Debt Management

Ryerson used $21 million of operating cash in the third quarter, driven by inventory restocking efforts and normalization of desired inventory service levels. As a result, our cash conversion cycle increased to 68 days. This compares to 55 days for the previous quarter and is within our normal range.

During the third quarter, Ryerson reduced the amount of its 2028 Senior Secured Notes outstanding by $150 million by exercising two of its optional redemption features. The Company ended the third quarter with $633 million of net debt, an increase compared to $563 million for the previous quarter driven by working capital investments, M&A and cash taxes. Despite the transient increase in net debt, the Company’s leverage ratio decreased quarter-over-quarter to 1.0x from 1.5x on stronger trailing twelve month Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO.

Ryerson’s global liquidity decreased to $698 million as of September 30, 2021 from $890 million as of June 30, 2021 as the Company applied proceeds from its sale-leaseback transaction to redeem Notes.

Shareholder Return Activity

During the third quarter, the Company repurchased a total of approximately 39,000 shares at an average price per share of $22.31 resulting in a return to shareholders of approximately $1 million. Ryerson made these repurchases in accordance with its share repurchase program, which authorizes the Company to purchase up to an aggregate amount of $50 million of the Company’s common stock through August 4, 2023. On November 3, 2021, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.085 per share of common stock, payable on December 16, 2021 to stockholders of record as of November 15, 2021.

Jim Claussen, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer said, “We were pleased to return approximately $4 million to our shareholders through our first dividend payment and share repurchases. These returns and our announced dividend increase are well-supported by Ryerson’s balance sheet advancements, which include attaining and sustaining our target leverage ratio, reducing the principal of our Notes by $150 million and de-risking our pension liabilities. In the third quarter, we also decreased our expenses as a percentage of sales by mitigating expense pressures and recorded our highest Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO for the second consecutive quarter. These achievements reflect the success of our operating and financial transformation, which has not only established our higher earnings potential but has also enabled our further investments in our strategic plan centered around value-added capabilities, digitalization and the overall customer experience.”

Outlook Commentary

Ryerson is optimistic about the fourth quarter industry environment and underlying demand, whose potential continues to build and extend. At this point in the fourth quarter, pricing growth across carbon products has slowed while nickel and aluminum prices remain elevated, benefitting the Company’s diversified product mix, which remains approximately 50% bright metals. Therefore, Ryerson anticipates fourth quarter 2021 revenues in the range of $1.5 billion to $1.6 billion with sequential average selling prices up 5% to 7% and shipments down 7% to 9% due to normal seasonality patterns and persistent supply chain constraints within its end-markets which are hampering realizable demand. LIFO expense in the fourth quarter is expected to be in the range of $71 to $75 million. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO is expected to be in the range of $228 to $232 million and earnings per diluted share is expected to be in the range of $2.38 to $2.48.

Note: EBITDA represents net income before interest and other expense on debt, provision for income taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA gives further effect to, among other things, reorganization expenses, gain on sales of assets, gain on insurance settlement, gain or loss on retirement of debt, pension settlement charge, purchase consideration and other transaction costs, and foreign currency transaction gains and losses. We believe that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), provides useful information to investors regarding our operational performance because they enhance an investor's overall understanding of our core financial performance and provide a basis of comparison of results between current, past, and future periods. We also disclose the metric Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), to provide a means of comparison amongst our competitors who may not use the same basis of accounting for inventories. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), are three of the primary metrics management uses for planning and forecasting in future periods, including trending and analyzing the core operating performance of our business without the effect of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, expenses, revenues, and gains (losses) that are unrelated to the day to day performance of our business. We also establish compensation programs for our executive management and regional employees that are based upon the achievement of pre-established EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), targets. We also use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), to benchmark our operating performance to that of our competitors. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), do not represent, and should not be used as a substitute for, net income or cash flows from operations as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and neither EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), is necessarily an indication of whether cash flow will be sufficient to fund our cash requirements. This release also presents gross margin, excluding LIFO expense (income), which is calculated as gross profit minus LIFO expense (income), divided by net sales. We have excluded LIFO expense (income) from gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales metrics in order to provide a means of comparison amongst our competitors who may not use the same basis of accounting for inventories as we do. Our definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), gross margin, excluding LIFO expense (income), and Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO expense (income), as a percentage of sales may differ from that of other companies.
