PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- On April 1, 2020, Arconic Inc. completed the separation of its business into two independent, publicly-traded companies: Howmet Aerospace Inc. (the new name for Arconic Inc.) and Arconic Corporation. The financial results of Arconic Corporation for all periods prior to April 1, 2020 have been retrospectively reflected in the Statement of Consolidated Operations as discontinued operations and, as such, have been excluded from continuing operations and segment results for all periods prior to April 1, 2020. Additionally, the related assets and liabilities associated with Arconic Corporation in the December 31, 2019 Consolidated Balance Sheet are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations. The cash flows, comprehensive income, and equity related to Arconic Corporation have not been segregated and are included in the Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows, Statement of Consolidated Comprehensive Income, and Statement of Changes in Consolidated Equity, respectively, for all periods prior to April 1, 2020.

Howmet Aerospace (NYSE: HWM) today reported third quarter 2020 results, for which the Company reported revenues of $1.13 billion, down 37% year over year due to disruptions in the commercial aerospace and commercial transportation markets, primarily driven by COVID-19 and 737 MAX production declines, somewhat offset by growth in the defense aerospace and industrial gas turbine markets.

Howmet Aerospace reported income from continuing operations of $36 million, or $0.08 per share, in the third quarter 2020 versus income from continuing operations of $58 million, or $0.13 per share, in the third quarter 2019. Income from continuing operations excluding special items was $13 million, or $0.03 per share, in the third quarter 2020, versus $148 million, or $0.33 per share, in the third quarter 2019. Income from continuing operations in the third quarter 2020 included a $23 million benefit from special items, principally related to a benefit of discrete tax items, partially offset by restructuring and other charges.

Third quarter 2020 operating income was $73 million versus $256 million in the third quarter 2019. Operating income excluding special items was $100 million, down 69% year over year, and includes the buyout of an unfavorable long-term contract for $8 million. The year-over-year decline was also due to significant disruptions in the commercial aerospace and commercial transportation markets driven by COVID-19 and 737 MAX production declines resulting in unfavorable volume and product mix, partly offset by growth in the defense aerospace and industrial gas turbine markets, variable and fixed cost reductions, and favorable product pricing. Operating income margin, excluding special items, was down approximately 900 basis points year over year to 8.8%.

Howmet Aerospace Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer John Plant said, “As expected, Howmet Aerospace faced significant headwinds in the third quarter 2020 from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, reflected in our commercial aerospace revenues down 56% year over year. Nevertheless, third quarter 2020 results were in line with our expectations and included strong cash generation. We continue to focus on price increases, variable cost flexing, structural cost reduction, and capex reduction to drive free cash flow.”

Mr. Plant continued, “We expect that third quarter 2020 revenue and earnings will represent the low point for the year as commercial transportation and industrial gas turbine markets continue to recover, and we see fourth quarter 2020 adjusted EBITDA margins returning to the 20% to 21% range. In fact, we have improved our full year 2020 outlook, strengthening sales, increasing adjusted EBITDA, and lifting Adjusted earnings per share. Howmet Aerospace remains focused on the trajectory of margins as we move into 2021.”

“Our liquidity position is strong as a result of our strict and disciplined approach to costs and spending, and we expect to end the year with approximately $1.5 billion of cash. Our $1 billion revolving credit facility remains undrawn and our next significant debt maturity is not until 2024.”

For the third quarter 2020, cash provided from operations was $35 million; cash used for financing activities was $62 million; and cash provided from investing activities was $108 million. Adjusted Free Cash Flow for the third quarter 2020 was $143 million, inclusive of an approximate $45 million reduction in our accounts receivable securitization program and $14 million of cash severance payments.

Third Quarter 2020 Segment Performance

* Howmet Aerospace has not provided reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted earnings per share or earnings per share excluding special items, and adjusted free cash flow, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Such reconciliations are not available without unreasonable efforts due to the variability and complexity with respect to the charges and other components excluded from the non-GAAP measures, such as the effects of foreign currency movements, gains or losses on sales of assets, taxes, and any future restructuring or impairment charges. These reconciling items are in addition to the inherent variability already included in the GAAP measures, which includes, but is not limited to, price/mix and volume. Howmet Aerospace believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.

Increased Cost Reduction Target to Approximately $185 Million in 2020

In response to the significant market disruptions associated with COVID-19, Howmet Aerospace commenced plans in April to reduce costs. The Company increased its full year 2020 cost reduction target to $185 million versus the prior $150 million commitment. This structural cost reduction is in addition to the flexing of variable costs.

Reduced Full Year 2020 Capital Expenditures Outlook to $160 Million

Amid the reduction in volumes, Howmet Aerospace continues to focus on strengthening its liquidity position. The Company reduced its expectations for full year 2020 capital expenditures to $160 million versus prior expectations of $175 million.

Repurchased $51 Million of Common Stock in the Third Quarter 2020; $299 Million Authorization Remains

During the third quarter 2020, the Company repurchased 2.9 million shares of its common stock for $51 million. $299 million remains available under prior authorization by the Board of Directors for share repurchases. Total common shares outstanding as of the end of September were approximately 434 million. Repurchases will be subject to market conditions, legal requirements and other considerations. The share repurchase program may be suspended, modified or terminated at any time without prior notice.

Howmet Aerospace will hold its quarterly conference call at 10:00 AM Eastern Time on Monday, November 9, 2020. The call will be webcast via www.howmet.com.

Restructuring and other charges for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 included severance costs, pension curtailments and other exit costs. Restructuring and other charges for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 included severance costs, asset impairments, and other exit costs. Restructuring and other charges for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 primarily included a charge for impairment associated with an agreement to sell a U.K. forging business and other exit costs.

(2)

 

In order to calculate both basic and diluted earnings per share, preferred stock dividends declared of $1 for the quarters ended September 30, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019 need to be subtracted from Net income (loss).

(3)

 

For the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the difference between the diluted average number of shares and the basic average number of shares related to share equivalents associated with outstanding employee stock options and awards.

(4)  

Basic and diluted average number of shares and common stock outstanding at the end of the period for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 do not reflect the full impact of the share repurchases made at different times during 2020. Basic and diluted average number of shares and common stock outstanding at the end of the period for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 do not reflect the impact of the convertible notes, the difference between the diluted average number of shares and the respective basic average number of shares related to share equivalents associated with outstanding employee stock options and awards and the full impact of the share repurchases made at different times during 2019.

(5)

 

Per share amounts are calculated independently for Continuing and Discontinued Operations, therefore, the sum of the amounts may not equal the total Net Income (loss) per share.

During the second quarter of 2020, a $16 tax error was identified related to periods prior to 2018. Although management has determined it was not material to any periods, it was corrected as an adjustment to Retained Earnings (Accumulated Deficit) in the Statement of Changes in Consolidated Equity in the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020. During the third quarter, the Company determined that such correction to Retained Earnings (Accumulated Deficit) should have been accounted for as a correction to its prior year’s Retained Earnings (Accumulated Deficit) and Deferred income taxes and has made this revision in the current quarter. The accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2019 reflects the revision for such tax item.

In the first quarter of 2020, Arconic Corporation, which was then a wholly-owned subsidiary of Howmet Aerospace, completed its $600 offering of 6.125% senior secured second-lien notes due 2028 and a $600 seven-year senior secured first-lien term loan B facility in preparation for the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction.

(2)

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company identified a misclassification in the presentation of changes in accounts payable and capital expenditures in its previously issued Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows. Although management has determined that such misclassification did not materially misstate such prior financial statements, the Company has revised its Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 resulting in an increase of $117 to previously reported capital expenditures within cash provided from investing activities with a corresponding offset in accounts payable, trade within cash used for operations. The Company also revised its Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows to increase its previously reported capital expenditures with a corresponding offset in accounts payable, trade of $83 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, which is reflected in the nine month ended September 30, 2020 above. Other periods will be revised in future filings.

The net cash funding from the sale of accounts receivables was $350 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and all prior quarters presented. The net cash funding from the sale of accounts receivables was $329 million in the first quarter of 2020 which represented a $21 million use of cash in the first quarter. The net cash funding from the sale of accounts receivables was $299 million in the second quarter of 2020 which represented a $30 million use of cash in the second quarter. The net cash funding from the sale of accounts receivables was $255 million in the third quarter of 2020 which represented a $45 million use of cash in the third quarter.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company identified a misclassification in the presentation of changes in accounts payable and capital expenditures in its previously issued Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows. Although management has determined that such misclassification did not materially misstate such prior financial statements, the Company has revised its Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 resulting in an increase of $117 to previously reported capital expenditures within cash provided from investing activities with a corresponding offset in accounts payable, trade within cash used for operations. The Company also revised its Statement of Consolidated Cash Flows to increase its previously reported capital expenditures with a corresponding offset in accounts payable, trade of $83 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, which is reflected in the nine months ended September 30, 2020 above. Other periods will be revised in future filings.

Adjusted free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow, excluding costs associated with the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures are meaningful to investors because management reviews cash flows generated from operations after taking into consideration capital expenditures (due to the fact that these expenditures are considered necessary to maintain and expand the Company's asset base and are expected to generate future cash flows from operations), cash receipts from net sales of beneficial interest in sold receivables, as well as costs associated with the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction. It is important to note that Adjusted free cash flow and Adjusted free cash flow, excluding costs associated with the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since other non-discretionary expenditures, such as mandatory debt service requirements, are not deducted from the measure.

Income (loss) from continuing operations excluding Special items and Diluted EPS excluding Special items are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that these measures are meaningful to investors because management reviews the operating results of the Company excluding the impacts of Restructuring and other charges, Discrete tax items, and Other special items (collectively, “Special items”). There can be no assurances that additional special items will not occur in future periods. To compensate for this limitation, management believes that it is appropriate to consider both Income (loss) from continuing operations determined under GAAP as well as Income (loss) from continuing operations excluding Special items.

(1)

Discrete tax items for each period included the following:

  • for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, a net charge for prior year items $12, and a net charge for other items $2;

  • for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a benefit for a U.S. tax law change ($36), charges resulting from the remeasurement of deferred tax balances in various jurisdictions as a result of the Arconic Inc.

Operational tax rate is a non-GAAP financial measure. Management believes that this measure is meaningful to investors because management reviews the operating results of the Company excluding the impacts of Special items. There can be no assurances that additional Special items will not occur in future periods. To compensate for this limitation, management believes that it is appropriate to consider both the Effective tax rate determined under GAAP as well as the Operational tax rate.

Special items for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 include $22 of Restructuring and other charges and $5 related to plant-related fire costs and legal and other advisory costs related to Grenfell Tower. Special items for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 include $166 of Restructuring and other charges, $65 of new debt and tender fees, $7 costs associated with the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction, $22 in net costs related to plant-related fire costs, ($9) reimbursement of legal and advisory costs related to Grenfell Tower, $7 in interest costs and $3 for an inventory impairment.

Tax Special items includes discrete tax items and tax impact on Special items which is based on the applicable statutory rates whereby the difference between such rates and the Company’s consolidated estimated annual effective tax rate and other tax related items. Discrete tax items for each period included the following:

  • for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, a discrete tax benefit of $41 related to a $36 benefit for a U.S. tax law change as described below, a net $6 benefit for prior year items, and a net $1 charge for other items. The U.S. tax law change resulted from final regulations issued in July 2020 that provided an election to exclude from global intangible low-taxed income any foreign earnings subject to a local country tax rate of at least 90% of the U.S. tax rate.
  • for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, a discrete tax benefit of $39 related to a $36 benefit for a U.S. tax law change as described below, a $6 charge for the remeasurement of deferred tax balances in various jurisdictions as a result of the Arconic Inc. Separation Transaction, a $5 benefit for stock compensation, a net $2 benefit for prior year items, and a net $2 benefit for other items. The U.S. tax law change resulted from final regulations issued in July 2020 that provided an election to exclude from global intangible low-taxed income any foreign earnings subject to a local country tax rate of at least 90% of the U.S. tax rate.
