 Olin Announces Fourth Quarter 2016 Earnings
   Tuesday, January 31, 2017 6:51:00 PM ET

Olin Corporation (OLN ) announced today financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016.

The fourth quarter 2016 reported net income was $17.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. Fourth quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA of $221.7 million reflects depreciation and amortization expense of $136.1 million, restructuring charges of $6.7 million, and acquisition-related integration costs of $9.2 million. Adjusted net income from operations was $0.31 per diluted share, which excludes the aforementioned restructuring charges, acquisition-related integration costs and step-up depreciation and amortization expense of $40.3 million. Sales in the fourth quarter 2016 were $1,385.7 million.

John E. Fischer, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our fourth quarter 2016 adjusted EBITDA reflects better than expected results in the Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls segment, which more than offset weaker than expected results in the Epoxy segment. The favorable results in Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls were primarily the result of favorable cost performance, while the shortfall in Epoxy results reflects softer demand from coatings customers. Winchester’s fourth quarter 2016 segment earnings exceeded 2015 earnings due to higher sales volumes and lower operating costs. Full year 2016 adjusted EBITDA was $838.5 million.

"In 2017, we expect adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1 billion with upside opportunities and downside risks of approximately 5%. Due to a heavy maintenance turnaround schedule, we expect the first quarter of 2017 to be the lowest adjusted EBITDA quarter of the year. First quarter 2017 planned maintenance turnaround expenses are forecast to be approximately $10 million higher than the first quarter of 2016 and approximately $15 million higher than the fourth quarter of 2016.

"We enter 2017 with favorable caustic soda and ethylene dichloride pricing trends. Caustic soda price indices have increased for nine consecutive months and we are optimistic that some portion of the $40 per ton price increase announced for January 1 will be realized. We are forecasting that first quarter 2017 ethylene dichloride pricing should be approximately 25% higher than full year 2016 levels. In spite of the weaker than expected fourth quarter 2016 Epoxy results and increased raw materials costs associated with benzene and propylene pricing, we expect 2017 Epoxy results to improve compared to 2016. We are cautious about the Winchester business, which may experience a year-over-year decline in segment earnings as a result of lower ammunition demand, driven by customer efforts to reduce inventory, and higher commodity and material costs."

The full year 2017 adjusted EBITDA forecast reflects the following:

-- Higher domestic and export caustic soda pricing compared to 2016;

-- Lower ethylene costs associated with the acquisition of additional cost-based ethylene from Dow at mid-year;

-- Improved ethylene dichloride pricing;

-- Increased bleach sales resulting from the new bleach facility in Freeport, Texas;

-- Incremental cost synergy realizations of approximately $50 million to $75 million;

-- Higher electricity costs, primarily driven by higher natural gas costs;

-- Higher planned maintenance turnaround costs;

-- Higher corporate costs reflecting lower pension income and higher legacy environmental costs compared to 2016;

-- Pre-tax acquisition related integration and restructuring costs of approximately $50 million;

-- Capital spending in the $300 million to $350 million range, excluding the investment associated with acquiring additional ethylene; and

-- Depreciation and amortization costs comparable with 2016.

SEGMENT REPORTING

Olin defines segment earnings as income (loss) before interest expense, interest income, other operating income (expense) and income taxes and include the earnings of non-consolidated affiliates in segment results consistent with management’s monitoring of the operating segments.

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2015, Olin modified its reportable segments to incorporate the acquisition of Dow’s chlorine products businesses (the Acquired Business). Olin reports in three operating segments: Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls, Epoxy and Winchester. The new reporting structure has been retrospectively applied to the financial results for all periods presented. The former Olin Chlor Alkali Products and Olin Chemical Distribution segments have been included in the new Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls segment.

During 2016, Olin is providing sequential segment comparisons. Year-over-year segment comparisons for Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls and Epoxy are not meaningful because Olin did not own the Acquired Business until October of 2015.

CHLOR ALKALI PRODUCTS AND VINYLS

Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls sales for the fourth quarter 2016 were $782.6 million compared to $779.4 million in the third quarter 2016. Fourth quarter 2016 segment earnings of $72.4 million improved compared to $53.7 million in the third quarter 2016 primarily due to higher caustic soda pricing and lower operating costs, partially offset by higher electricity costs predominately driven by higher natural gas costs. Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls fourth quarter 2016 results included depreciation and amortization expense of $106.5 million compared to $106.3 million in third quarter 2016.

EPOXY

Epoxy sales for the fourth quarter 2016 were $441.7 million compared to $470.1 million in the third quarter 2016. The decrease in Epoxy sales is primarily due to lower volumes and a less favorable product mix. Fourth quarter 2016 segment loss was $3.1 million compared to segment earnings of $10.3 million in the third quarter 2016. The Epoxy segment earnings decline was primarily due to lower volumes and increased operating costs. Epoxy fourth quarter 2016 results included depreciation and amortization expense of $22.7 million compared to $22.6 million in third quarter 2016.

WINCHESTER

Winchester sales for the fourth quarter 2016 were $161.4 million compared to $203.2 million in the third quarter 2016. Fourth quarter 2016 segment earnings were $25.0 million compared to $36.0 million in the third quarter 2016. The decrease in sales and segment earnings primarily reflects lower shipments to commercial customers reflecting a normal seasonal pattern. Winchester fourth and third quarter 2016 results both included depreciation and amortization expense of $4.7 million.

CORPORATE AND OTHER COSTS

Pension income included in the fourth quarter 2016 Corporate and Other segment was $13.4 million compared to $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Fourth quarter 2016 charges to income for environmental investigatory and remedial activities were $3.7 million compared to $0.4 million in the third quarter 2016. These charges relate primarily to remedial and investigatory activities associated with former waste sites and past operations of the legacy Olin businesses.

Other corporate and unallocated costs in the fourth quarter 2016 decreased $9.7 million compared to the third quarter 2016, primarily due to lower legal and litigation costs and decreased asset retirement costs at past manufacturing locations.

CASH / DEBT

The cash balance at December 31, 2016 was $184.5 million. In 2016, we repaid approximately $205 million of maturing debt using available cash. Also during 2016, we repaid $210 million of term loan debt using funding from a new accounts receivable securitization program. During 2017, Olin has maturing debt of $79.7 million.

DIVIDEND

On January 27, 2017, Olin’s Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.20 on each share of Olin common stock. The dividend is payable on March 10, 2017 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 10, 2017. This will be the 361st consecutive quarterly dividend to be paid by the Company.

CONFERENCE CALL INFORMATION

Olin management will host a conference call to discuss fourth quarter 2016 earnings at 10:00 A.M. ET on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. The call, along with associated slides, which will be available one hour prior to the call, will be accessible via webcast through Olin’s website, www.olin.com.

-- future funding obligations to our qualified defined benefit pension plan attributable to assumed pension liabilities;

-- fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates;

-- failure to attract, retain and motivate key employees;

-- our ability to provide the same types and levels of benefits, services and resources to the Acquired Business that historically have been provided by TDCC at the same cost;

-- differences between the historical financial information of Olin and the Acquired Business and our future operating performance;

-- the effect of any changes resulting from the transaction with TDCC in customer, supplier and other business relationships; and

-- the effects of restrictions imposed on our business following the transaction with TDCC in order to avoid significant tax-related liabilities.

All of our forward-looking statements should be considered in light of these factors. In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we consider immaterial could affect the accuracy of our forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (a)
Olin’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is net income (loss) plus an add-back for depreciation and amortization, interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), other expense (income), restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs and certain other non-recurring items.  Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors as a supplemental financial measure to assess the financial performance of our assets without regard to financing methods, capital structures, taxes or historical cost basis.  The use of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to replace any measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are omitted from this release because Olin is unable to provide such reconciliations without the use of unreasonable efforts.  This inability results from the inherent difficulty in forecasting generally and quantifying certain projected amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations.  In particular, sufficient information is not available to calculate certain adjustments required for such reconciliations, including interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), other expense (income), restructuring charges and acquisition-related costs.  Because of our inability to calculate such adjustments, forward-looking net income guidance is also omitted from this release.  We expect these adjustments to have a potentially significant impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures(a)
Olin’s definition of adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share is net income (loss) per share plus a per dilutive share add-back for step-up depreciation and amortization recorded in conjunction with the Acquired Business, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, certain other non-recurring items and the tax impact of the aforementioned adjustments.  Adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share is a non-GAAP financial measure excluding certain items that we do not consider part of ongoing operations.  Management believes that this supplemental financial measure is meaningful to investors as a financial performance metric which is useful to investors for comparative purposes. The use of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to replace any measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP and adjusted net income (loss) from operations per share presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
