FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., February 20, 2019 - Kaiser Aluminum Corporation (NASDAQ:KALU) today announced results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Full Year 2018 Management Summary

“Kaiser delivered excellent results in 2018, consistent with the outlook communicated at the beginning of the year and despite persistent headwinds from aerospace supply chain destocking, high contained metal and freight costs and Section 232 tariffs,” said Jack A. Hockema, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“For the full year 2018 we achieved record shipments, up 4% year-over-year, and value added revenue, up 5%, driven by strong demand. Record commercial airframe builds drove underlying demand growth, and aerospace supply chain destocking began moderating in the second half 2018, further enhancing demand growth. Aluminum extrusion content continued to increase on solid North American automotive builds, and demand for general engineering and industrial products remained strong throughout the year with normal second half seasonal weakness. Adjusted EBITDA improved $6 million year-over-year as sales volume and mix provided a $21 million benefit partially offset by an $11 million adverse pricing impact due to unrecovered high contained metal and freight costs and $3 million of Section 232 tariffs,” said Mr. Hockema.
 
Consistent with the Company’s capital allocation priorities, organic investments of $74 million focused on areas to enhance manufacturing cost efficiency, improve product quality, expand capacity and promote operational security, including capital spending related to the modernization of its Spokane, WA (“Trentwood”) facility. In addition to organic investments, the Company invested $43 million to acquire Imperial Machine & Tool (“IMT”), a leader in multi-material additive manufacturing and machining technologies.

The Company continued to return cash to shareholders during the year through quarterly dividends and share repurchases that totaled nearly $100 million. In early 2018, the Company raised its quarterly dividend 10% to $0.55 per share, and in early 2019, for the eighth consecutive year, raised it an additional 9% to $0.60 per share.

In late 2018, the Company received approval for its Bellwood facility in Richmond, VA to operate as a Foreign Trade Zone, which serves to mitigate more than 50% of the tariff costs otherwise incurred on its internal cross border transactions. While decisions are still pending on specific product exclusion requests, the Company will continue to incur tariff costs of approximately $0.2 million per month. If the exclusion requests receive approval by





the Department of Commerce, the Company expects to recover costs paid from the date of the initial 2018 filing of each request.

“Our second half 2018 results were a record for the last six months of a year,” said Mr. Hockema. “Aerospace supply chain destocking began to moderate, and underlying commercial airframe demand was strong as build rates continued to grow. In addition, we realized the full impact of proactive price increases implemented during the second quarter of 2018. We have initiated additional price increases in 2019 for certain non-contract general engineering and aerospace applications and, with growing demand and improving prices, we have positive momentum as we begin 2019.”

Fourth Quarter 2018

Net sales for the fourth quarter 2018 were $389 million, up approximately 10% from $353 million in the prior year period, reflecting 4% higher shipments and a 6% increase in average selling price. The increase in average selling price reflected an approximately 10% increase in underlying contained metal costs and a 4% increase in value added revenue per pound.

Value added revenue (net sales less the hedged cost of alloyed metal) for the fourth quarter 2018 increased 8% year-over-year to $210 million on 4% higher shipments, compared to $194 million in the prior year period reflecting improving demand for the Company’s aerospace applications and full realization of price increases implemented in the second quarter 2018. Value added revenue for the Company’s aerospace/high strength applications increased 11% to $122 million and shipments increased 14% reflecting improving underlying demand growth, moderating destocking in the aerospace supply chain and incremental capacity from recent investments. Value added revenue for general engineering applications increased 10% to $55 million on 6% lower shipments reflecting improved pricing. Value added revenue for automotive extrusions decreased 6% to $27 million, reflecting a 1% decrease in shipments as mix continues to shift to newer lower value added programs.

Adjusted consolidated EBITDA of $55 million in the fourth quarter 2018 increased $7 million compared to the prior year period reflecting the favorable sales impact, partially offset by higher freight and tariff costs. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of value added revenue increased to 26.0% in the fourth quarter 2018 as compared to 24.6% in the prior year period.

Net income for the fourth quarter 2018 was $24 million, or $1.41 income per diluted share, compared to net loss and diluted loss per share of $15 million and $0.90, respectively, for the prior year period. Excluding the impact of non-run-rate items, adjusted net income was $30 million or $1.77 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2018, up from adjusted net income of $20 million or $1.22 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter 2017. Reported fourth quarter 2017 results reflected an incremental $37 million non-cash tax expense as a result of federal tax reform legislation primarily related to revaluing the Company’s deferred tax assets.

Full Year 2018

Net sales for full year 2018 were $1.6 billion, up approximately 13% from $1.4 billion in the prior year period, reflecting 4% higher shipments and a 9% increase in average selling price. The increase in average selling price reflected an approximately 20% increase in underlying contained metal costs and a 1% increase in value added revenue per pound.

Full year 2018 value added revenue of $828 million was 5% higher than the $786 million in the prior year period due to a 4% increase in shipments and higher pricing in the second half of the year. Value added revenue for the Company’s aerospace/high strength applications increased 6% to $455 million reflecting a 7% increase in shipments driven by underlying demand that continued to grow throughout the year, continued moderation of supply chain destocking, and incremental capacity from recent investments the Company's Trentwood rolling mill. Value added revenue for general engineering applications increased 8% over the prior year to $233 million, driven by a 1% increase in shipments reflecting higher pricing and a richer overall product mix. Value added revenue for automotive extrusions decreased 1% to $117 million on a 3% increase in shipments reflecting a lower value added product mix.

Adjusted consolidated EBITDA of $205 million for full year 2018 increased $6 million compared to the prior year period. The increase in adjusted EBITDA reflects a $21 million favorable impact from higher volume, partly offset by an approximately $11 million negative pricing impact due to unrecovered higher metal and freight costs and approximately $3 million of tariff costs. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of value added revenue was 24.7% in 2018 as compared to 25.3% in the prior year period.






For the full year 2018, the Company reported net income of $92 million, or $5.43 per diluted share, compared to net income of $45 million, or $2.63 per diluted share in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of non-run-rate items, adjusted net income for the full year 2018 was $109 million or $6.48 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $88 million or $5.09 per diluted share for the prior year period. Reported full year 2017 results reflected a 66% effective tax rate due to the previously discussed one-time tax charge in the fourth quarter.
 
Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Adjusted EBITDA of $205 million during full year 2018 funded working capital requirements, capital expenditures of approximately $74 million, the $43 million acquisition of IMT, interest and quarterly dividend payments and contributions totaling $16 million to the Union and Salaried VEBAs. The Company returned nearly $100 million of cash to shareholders through quarterly dividends and share repurchases.

As of December 31, 2018, total cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments were approximately $162 million and borrowing availability under the Company’s Revolving Credit Facility was approximately $292 million.

2019 Outlook

“As we look to our outlook for aerospace/high strength applications, we expect growing build rates and further moderation in commercial aerospace supply chain destocking as airframe manufacturers continue to address the ongoing greater than 8-year order backlog. In addition, the recent increase in defense spending from U.S. allies strengthens the outlook for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, the F/A-18 Super Hornet, and other military applications,” said Mr. Hockema.

“For our automotive extrusion applications, 2019 North American build rates are expected to be slightly lower than 2018. As previously mentioned, 2019 is expected to be a transition year as we have many existing programs reaching end of life and a number of new program launches throughout the year. New program launches are inherently unpredictable due to timing in the launch of the new vehicle for which we are a supplier as there a multitude of other suppliers and processes for the automotive manufacturers to qualify, in addition to uncertainty of market sentiment and consumer acceptance of the new vehicles.
 
“We are cautiously optimistic about underlying demand for our general engineering products, despite uncertainty around global trade negotiations and economic conditions. As we look forward, we expect continuing strong demand and pricing for our applications," said Mr. Hockema

As previously indicated during the Company’s third quarter 2018 earnings call, significant maintenance activity is planned for the casting complex, hot line and large stretcher at its Trentwood facility. The planned outage is scheduled to occur in the second quarter 2019. Based on previous experience involving similar maintenance outages, the Company estimates an EBITDA impact of approximately $15 million from incremental maintenance costs and lost production and sales compared to steady-state operations.

Overall, for the full year 2019, the Company expects strong demand to support a low to mid-single digit percent increase in both shipments and value added revenue year-over-year. The Company also expects EBITDA as a percentage of value added revenue to be above 25% in 2019, with higher shipments and improved pricing more than offsetting the impact of the Trentwood maintenance outage. Total capital spending in 2019, is expected to be approximately $80 -$90 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. A “non-GAAP financial measure” is defined as a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statements of income, balance sheets, or statements of cash flow of the Company. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure in the accompanying tables.

The non-GAAP financial measures used within this earnings release are value added revenue, adjusted operating income, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per diluted share which exclude non-run-rate items and ratios related thereto. As more fully described in these reports, “non-run-rate” items are items that, while they may occur from period to period, are particularly material to results, impact costs primarily as a result of external market factors and may not occur in future periods if the same level of underlying performance were to occur. These measures are presented because management uses this information to monitor and evaluate financial results and trends and believes this information to also be useful for investors.

1 Mark-to-market loss (gain) on derivative instruments for 2018 represents the reversal of mark-to-market loss (gain) on hedges entered into prior to the adoption of ASU 2017-12 and settled in 2018. Operating income excluding non-run-rate items reflects the realized loss (gain) of such settlements.
2 NRR is an abbreviation for Non-Run-Rate; NRR items are pre-tax.
3 Other operating NRR items primarily represent the impact of non-cash net periodic benefit cost (income) related to the salaried VEBA, adjustments to plant-level LIFO, lower of cost or market, environmental expenses, workers' compensation cost (benefit) due to discounting and impairment losses.
4 Adjusted EBITDA = Consolidated Operating Income before non-run-rate plus Depreciation and Amortization.
5 Diluted shares for EPS calculated using treasury method.
