PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Arconic Corporation (NYSE: ARNC) (“Arconic” or “the Company”) today announced second quarter 2020 results, with reported revenue of $1.2 billion, down 38% year over year on weaker volumes across all segments and most end markets primarily due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company reported a net loss of $92 million, or $0.84 per share, in second quarter 2020 compared with net income of $5 million, or $0.04 per share, in second quarter 2019. The second quarter 2020 net loss included $76 million of after-tax special items primarily related to a non-cash charge to annuitize U.K. pension obligations, debt issuance costs, plant closure costs, and the previously announced restructuring. Second quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA was $94 million compared with $211 million in second quarter 2019 primarily as a result of lower volumes due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic partly mitigated by cost reduction actions.

Tim Myers, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “As we launched a new company in the midst of a global pandemic, we quickly responded to keep our employees safe and continue supply to our customers. Additionally, we implemented strategic and financial actions to conserve cash and maintain our strong position in the markets we serve, which will enable us to benefit from strong secular growth trends.”

Arconic began operating as a standalone company on April 1, when sudden declines in critical end markets due to the COVID-19 pandemic shut down many of its customers’ production facilities around the world. The Company announced $200 million of cash conservation actions in early April to right-size its highly variable cost structure for the swings in demand, which has since been increased to $250 million.

In addition to implementing cash conservation actions, Arconic restructured its balance sheet to be more flexible, increase liquidity, and better mitigate impacts of the global pandemic. Arconic also addressed a legacy pension obligation, reducing its gross liability by approximately $250 million primarily through the annuitization of a portion of the U.K. pension obligation.

Mr. Myers said, “I’m proud of the way the whole Arconic team has continued to take all the right actions to position this Company for growth, and I’d like to thank our employees for their commitment in staying focused on these objectives. Going forward, we will continue to:

- Grow organic volumes in attractive end markets;
- Drive cost savings, increase scrap utilization, and capture network efficiencies across all our facilities; and
- Actively manage our legacy obligations.

These actions position Arconic to benefit from the global megatrends driving growth: automotive light-weighting, demand for alternatives to plastic packaging, and the focus on energy-efficiency in building and construction.”

Arconic ended the second quarter of 2020 with cash on hand of $595 million and total liquidity of approximately $1.3 billion.

Updated Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

Arconic increased its previously announced cash conservation actions to $250 million from $200 million in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those actions now include $200 million related to temporary salary reductions, 10% salaried headcount reduction, and operational schedule optimization, and a $50 million reduction in capital expenditures for FY2020. Of the $200 million in cost actions, $100 million are structural in nature.

Recapitalization Transaction

On May 13, 2020, Arconic closed on its new capital structure that better positions the Company to weather the swings in cash needs as the end markets move through the cycle. The recapitalization transaction was comprised of a newly issued $700 million first lien note due 2025 with a 6.0% interest rate. The Company used the proceeds to repay the outstanding $600 million of term loan B and added the remaining approximately $100 million in cash to the balance sheet. The Company also replaced its cash flow revolver with an undrawn $800 million asset-backed lending facility.

United Kingdom Pension Annuitization

In second quarter 2020, the Company successfully reduced its gross pension obligation by approximately $250 million primarily through the purchase of a group annuity contract for certain pensioners. This transaction mitigates future mortality, inflation and yield curve risk. This action required approximately $10 million in funding during the quarter and resulted in a $55 million non-cash settlement charge primarily related to the use of surplus for the buyout premium and the acceleration of legacy pension actuarial losses.

Arconic will hold its quarterly conference call at 10:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time on August 4, 2020, to present second quarter 2020 financial results. The call will be webcast on the Arconic website. Call information and related details are available at www.arconic.com under “Investors.”

Prior to April 1, 2020, Arconic Corporation’s financial statements were prepared on a carve-out basis, as the underlying operations of the Company were previously consolidated as part of Arconic Corporation’s former parent company’s financial statements. Accordingly, the Company’s results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were prepared on such basis. The carve-out financial statements of Arconic Corporation are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s consolidated results of operations had it been a standalone company during the referenced period. See the Combined Financial Statements included in each of (i) Exhibit 99.1 to Arconic Corporation’s Form 10 Registration Statement (filed on February 7, 2020), (ii) the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (filed on March 30, 2020), and (iii) the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (filed on May 18, 2020), for additional information.

In preparation for the separation of Arconic Corporation from its former parent company, effective January 1, 2020, certain U.S. defined benefit pension and other postretirement plans previously sponsored by the former parent company were separated into standalone plans for both Arconic Corporation and the former parent company. Additionally, effective April 1, 2020, Arconic Corporation assumed a portion of the obligations associated with certain non-U.S. defined benefit pension plans that included participants related to both Arconic Corporation and its former parent company, as well as legacy defined benefit pension plans assigned to the Company as a result of the separation from the former parent company. As a result, beginning in the first quarter of 2020 for these U.S. plans and in the second quarter of 2020 for these non-U.S. plans, Arconic Corporation applied defined benefit plan accounting resulting in benefit plan expense being recorded in operating income (service cost) and nonoperating income (nonservice cost). In all historical periods prior to these respective timeframes, Arconic Corporation was considered a participating employer in the former parent company’s defined benefit plans and, therefore, applied multiemployer plan accounting resulting in the Company’s share of benefit plan expense being recorded entirely in operating income. Also, Arconic Corporation is the plan sponsor of certain other non-U.S. defined benefit plans that contain participants related only to the underlying operations of the Company and, therefore, the related benefit plan expense was recorded in accordance with defined benefit plan accounting in all periods presented. The following table presents the total benefit plan expense (excluding settlements and curtailments) recorded by Arconic Corporation based on the foregoing in each period presented:

Interest expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 includes $19 associated with the completion of a debt refinancing in May 2020 that resulted in the combination of a write-off of previously capitalized debt issuance costs and the immediate expensing of certain new debt issuance costs.

 

(4)

In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the diluted weighted-average number of shares does not include any share equivalents associated with outstanding employee stock awards as their effect was anti-dilutive since the Company generated a net loss for the period. Prior to April 1, 2020, the Company did not have any publicly-traded issued and outstanding common stock or any common share equivalents. Accordingly, the respective basic and diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were calculated based on the 109,021,376 shares of Arconic Corporation common stock distributed on April 1, 2020 in connection with the completion of Arconic Corporation’s separation from its former parent company.

Prior to April 1, 2020, Arconic Corporation’s financial statements were prepared on a carve-out basis, as the underlying operations of the Company were previously consolidated as part of Arconic Corporation’s former parent company’s financial statements. Accordingly, the Company’s cash flows for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were prepared on such basis. The carve-out financial statements of Arconic Corporation are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s consolidated cash flows had it been a standalone company during the referenced period. See the Combined Financial Statements included in each of (i) Exhibit 99.1 to Arconic Corporation’s Form 10 Registration Statement (filed on February 7, 2020), (ii) the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (filed on March 30, 2020), and (iii) the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (filed on May 18, 2020), for additional information.

On April 1, 2020, Arconic Inc. separated into two standalone, publicly-traded companies, Arconic Corporation and Howmet Aerospace Inc. (the “Separation”). In connection with the capital structure to be established at the time of the Separation, Arconic Corporation secured $1,200 in third-party indebtedness during the first quarter of 2020. The net proceeds from a portion of this indebtedness was held in escrow until the satisfaction of the escrow release conditions, which included the substantially concurrent completion of the Separation. Accordingly, the escrowed cash was included in Restricted cash as of March 31, 2020 (see footnote 3 below). The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the aggregate indebtedness to make a $728 payment to its former parent company on April 1, 2020 to fund the transfer of certain net assets from the former parent company to Arconic Corporation in connection with the completion of the Separation. On April 2, 2020, Arconic Corporation incurred an additional $500 of indebtedness as a proactive measure taken by the Company to bolster its liquidity and preserve financial flexibility in light of uncertainties resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak. On May 13, 2020, in order to provide improved financial flexibility, Arconic Corporation executed a refinancing of a portion of its outstanding indebtedness by securing $700 in new third-party indebtedness. The Company used the net proceeds from the new indebtedness, together with cash on hand, to repay $1,100 of outstanding indebtedness.
 

(3)

For the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Restricted cash included in “Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash at beginning of period” was $593 and less than $0.1, respectively. Additionally, the Restricted cash included in “Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash at end of period” was less than $0.2 for both quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

Prior to April 1, 2020, Arconic Corporation’s financial statements were prepared on a carve-out basis, as the underlying operations of the Company were previously consolidated as part of Arconic Corporation’s former parent company’s financial statements. Accordingly, the Company’s results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 were prepared on such basis. The carve-out financial statements of Arconic Corporation are not necessarily indicative of the Company’s consolidated results of operations had it been a standalone company during the referenced period. See the Combined Financial Statements included in each of (i) Exhibit 99.1 to Arconic Corporation’s Form 10 Registration Statement (filed on February 7, 2020), (ii) the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (filed on March 30, 2020), and (iii) the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (filed on May 18, 2020), for additional information.

Effective in the second quarter of 2020, management elected to change the profit or loss measure of the Company’s reportable segments from Segment operating profit to Segment Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) for internal reporting and performance measurement purposes. This change was made to enhance the transparency and visibility of the underlying operating performance of each segment. Arconic Corporation calculates Segment Adjusted EBITDA as Total sales (third-party and intersegment) minus each of (i) Cost of goods sold, (ii) Selling, general administrative, and other expenses, and (iii) and Research and development expenses, plus Stock-based compensation expense. Previously, the Company calculated Segment operating profit as Segment Adjusted EBITDA minus both Stock-based compensation expense and the Provision for depreciation and amortization. Arconic Corporation’s Segment Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies’ reportable segments.

 

Total Segment Adjusted EBITDA is the sum of the respective Segment Adjusted EBITDA for each of the Company's three reportable segments: Rolled Products, Building and Construction Systems, and Extrusions. This amount is being presented for the sole purpose of reconciling Segment Adjusted EBITDA to the Company's Consolidated net income.

In preparation for the separation of Arconic Corporation from its former parent company, effective January 1, 2020, certain U.S. defined benefit pension and other postretirement plans previously sponsored by the former parent company were separated into standalone plans for both Arconic Corporation and the former parent company. Additionally, effective April 1, 2020, Arconic Corporation assumed a portion of the obligations associated with certain non-U.S. defined benefit pension plans that included participants related to both Arconic Corporation and its former parent company, as well as legacy defined benefit pension plans assigned to the Company as a result of the separation from the former parent company. As a result, beginning in the first quarter of 2020 for these U.S. plans and in the second quarter of 2020 for these non-U.S. plans, Arconic Corporation applied defined benefit plan accounting resulting in benefit plan expense being recorded in operating income (service cost) and nonoperating income (nonservice cost). In all historical periods prior to these respective timeframes, Arconic Corporation was considered a participating employer in the former parent company’s defined benefit plans and, therefore, applied multiemployer plan accounting resulting in the Company’s share of benefit plan expense being recorded entirely in operating income. Also, Arconic Corporation is the plan sponsor of certain other non-U.S. defined benefit plans that contain participants related only to the underlying operations of the Company and, therefore, the related benefit plan expense was recorded in accordance with defined benefit plan accounting in all periods presented. The following table presents the total benefit plan expense (excluding settlements and curtailments) recorded by Arconic Corporation based on the foregoing in each period presented:

Arconic Corporation’s definition of Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) is net margin plus an add-back for the following items: Provision for depreciation and amortization; Stock-based compensation; and Other special items. Net margin is equivalent to Sales minus the following items: Cost of goods sold; Selling, general administrative, and other expenses; Research and development expenses; and Provision for depreciation and amortization. Special items are composed of restructuring and other charges, discrete income tax items, and other items as deemed appropriate by management. There can be no assurances that additional special items will not occur in future periods. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because Adjusted EBITDA provides additional information with respect to Arconic Corporation’s operating performance and the Company’s ability to meet its financial obligations. The Adjusted EBITDA presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

  • for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, a charge for an ongoing environmental remediation matter referred to as Grasse River ($25) and an allocation of costs incurred by Arconic Corporation’s former parent company associated with the following matters: the April 1, 2020 separation of Arconic Inc. into two standalone publicly-traded companies ($9), negotiation of a collective bargaining agreement with the United Steelworkers ($9), and a legal matter referred to as Grenfell Tower ($2).

Net debt is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because management assesses Arconic Corporation’s leverage position after considering available cash that could be used to repay outstanding debt. Long-term debt equals $1,300 principal of outstanding indebtedness less $24 of unamortized debt issuance costs.
