VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acadian Timber Corp. (“Acadian” or the “Company”) (TSX:ADN) today reported financial and operating results1 for the three months ended September 29, 2018 (the “third quarter”).

“Acadian performed well in the third quarter, notably supported by improved sawtimber demand and pricing in Maine” said Mark Bishop, Chief Executive Officer of Acadian. Mr. Bishop further noted that “Operating rates for Acadian’s primary sawmill and pulp and paper customers remained stable suggesting demand and log pricing should remain firm into next year.”

Acadian generated Adjusted EBITDA of $6.1 million for the three-month period ended September 29, 2018 compared to $6.7 million in the prior year period. The Company benefited from favourable operating conditions and strong seasonal demand, however log sales volumes decreased 11% over the prior year due to timing of harvest activity. Acadian’s weighted average log selling price increased 6% as prices for most of our products benefited from improved demand. Third quarter net income of $5.9 million was $3.8 million lower than the prior year period total of $9.7 million primarily due to the impact of changes in the foreign exchange revaluation of U.S. dollar denominated long-term debt as well as lower log sales volumes. During the quarter, Free Cash Flow was $5.1 million versus $5.3 million in the same period of 2017.

During the first nine months of 2018, we have declared dividends of $0.84 per share or $14.1 million compared to $13.8 million during the same period of 2017, reflecting a 3% increase in our quarterly dividend. This represents a Payout Ratio of 98%, which is slightly above our long-term annual target of 95% but in-line with expectations given the seasonality of our operations. We anticipate that over the long-term we will maintain a Payout Ratio consistent with target levels.

____________________________________
1 This news release makes reference to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Free Cash Flow and Payout Ratio which are key performance measures in evaluating Acadian’s operations and are important in enhancing investors’ understanding of Acadian’s operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are used to evaluate operational performance. Free Cash Flow is used to evaluate Acadian’s ability to generate sustainable cash flows from our operations while Payout Ratio is used to evaluate Acadian’s ability to fund its distribution using Free Cash Flow. Acadian’s management defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, fair value adjustments, recovery of or impairment of land and roads, realized gain/loss on sale of roads and other fixed assets, unrealized exchange gain/loss on debt, depreciation and amortization and Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of its total revenue. Free Cash Flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less interest paid, current income tax expense, and capital expenditures plus net proceeds from the sale of fixed assets (selling price less gains or losses included in Adjusted EBITDA). Payout Ratio is defined as dividends declared divided by Free Cash Flow. As these performance measures do not have standardized meanings prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), they may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. As a result, we have provided in this news release reconciliations of net income, as determined in accordance with IFRS, to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Free Cash Flow.

During the third quarter of 2018, Acadian generated net sales of $26.6 million compared to $27.2 million in the prior year period. Acadian benefited from favourable operating conditions and strong seasonal demand, however, log sales volumes decreased 11% due to timing of harvest activity. The decrease in log sales volumes was partially offset by a 6% increase in weighted average log selling prices, as prices for most of our products benefited from improved demand, and a meaningful improvement in biomass revenues due to stronger export markets. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.1 million, down from $6.7 million in the prior year period, and the Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 23% from 25% as improved log selling prices were more than offset by the impact of lower sales volumes and higher variable log harvest costs per m3.

Net income was $5.9 million, or $0.36 per share, for the third quarter, compared to $9.7 million, or $0.58 per share, for the same period in 2017 due to the impact of changes in the foreign exchange revaluation of U.S. dollar denominated long-term debt, as well as lower log sales volumes.

For the nine-month period ended September 29, 2018, Acadian’s net sales improved to $75.7 million from $69.6 million during the prior year period, primarily attributable to a 3% increase in log sales volumes driven by favourable harvest conditions, particularly for spruce and fir stands. The weighted average log selling price increased 2% compared to the prior year period driven by higher selling prices for our products, partially offset by changes in the sales mix. In addition, gross margin earned from biomass products increased 59% due to stronger export markets. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA improved to $17.5 million from $17.3 million during the first nine months of 2017, despite a $1.1 million decrease in HBU land sales in Maine. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 23% from 25% in the prior year period as the increase in log sales volumes was more than offset by changes in the sales mix and lower HBU land sales in Maine. For the nine-months ended September 29, 2018, net income was $9.8 million, or $0.59 per share, which represents a decrease of $8.6 million over the same period of 2017 primarily due to the impact of changes in the foreign exchange revaluation of U.S. dollar denominated long-term debt.

1. Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation as a result of adoption of IFRS 15, Revenue From Contracts with Customers, on January 1, 2018

Net sales for our New Brunswick Timberlands were $20.1 million compared to $20.6 million during the prior year period. Despite continued favourable harvest and demand conditions, year-over-year third quarter log sales volumes declined by 11% due to timing of our harvest activities which reflects strong markets during the first half of 2018 and our commitment to manage New Brunswick Timberlands’ annual harvest volumes at sustainable levels. In addition, timber services and other sales decreased 5% compared to the prior year period primarily due to timing of harvest activities.

The weighted average log selling price during the quarter was $63.93 per m3, versus $62.55 per m3 in the prior year period. Demand for softwood sawlogs and hardwood pulpwood in New Brunswick remained strong with prices increasing 5% and 3%, respectively, however this was partially offset by changes in the sales mix during the period due to higher relative sales volumes of lower-valued softwood pulpwood. Pricing for this product was, however, favourable compared to the prior year period.

Export markets for biomass products strengthened year-over-year resulting in a 50% increase in the gross margin earned compared to the third quarter of 2017 driven by a 157% increase in sales prices, partially offset by a 17% decrease in sales volumes.

Operating costs for the quarter were $15.8 million, compared to $15.3 million in the third quarter of 2017 primarily due to a 7% increase in variable log harvest costs per m3, attributable to longer average haul distances and higher fuel costs, partially offset by lower harvest volumes.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million during the third quarter of 2018, compared to $5.5 million in the prior year period, due to lower log sales volumes and higher variable log harvest costs per m3. As a result, the Adjusted EBITDA margin for the quarter decreased to 22% from 26% in the prior year period.

During the nine-month period ended September 29, 2018, net sales totaled $56.2 million, a $2.8 million increase compared to the same period last year, reflecting stronger biomass export markets and the timing of timber services. The operations benefited from increases in softwood sawlog and hardwood pulpwood prices of 3% and 2%, respectively, but these gains were offset by the impact of changes in the sales mix. Costs of $43.9 million were $4.1 million higher than the prior year due to higher harvest volumes and higher fuel costs. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA was $12.5 million, a decrease of $1.1 million compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $13.6 million in the same period last year, while the Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 22% from 26%.

There were no recordable safety incidents among employees and one minor lost time incident among contractors during the third quarter of 2018.

Net sales totaled $6.5 million compared to $6.6 million for the same period last year as a 14% increase in the weighted average log selling price fully offset the 13% decrease in log sales volumes. While harvest and market conditions continued to be favourable during the quarter, harvest activities were adjusted to reflect our commitment to manage Maine Timberlands’ annual harvest volumes to sustainable levels.

The weighted average log selling price in Canadian dollar terms was $85.78 per m3, up from $75.29 per m3 in the same period of 2017. The weighted average log selling price in U.S. dollar terms was up 9% year-over-year to $65.64 per m3, reflecting meaningfully improved demand for softwood sawlogs and hardwood pulpwood for which prices increased by 15% and 5%, respectively.

Costs for the third quarter of $5.0 million were $0.4 million lower compared to the same period in 2017 due to lower log sales volumes and shorter hauling distances, the impacts of which were partially offset by foreign exchange and higher fuel costs.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $1.9 million compared to $1.6 million in the prior year period as the higher weighted average log selling price resulted in the Adjusted EBITDA margin increasing to 29%, from 23% in 2017.

During the nine-month period ended September 29, 2018, net sales totaled $19.5 million, $3.3 million higher than the first nine months of 2017, driven by a 12% increase in log sales volumes due to favourable operating conditions and strong demand for softwood sawlogs compared to the previous year. Year-to-date softwood and hardwood harvest levels are in-line with expected harvest levels through the end of 2020 and consistent with our annual harvest profile as per our Sustainable Forestry Initiative® certification. Net sales for the Maine Timberlands also benefited from a 7% increase in the weighted average log selling price, reflecting meaningfully improved demand and prices for softwood sawlogs and hardwood pulpwood. Costs were $14.3 million, or $0.9 million higher than the same period of 2017 largely due to higher log sales volumes, partially offset by the benefit of shorter hauling distances. Although HBU land sales fell $1.1 million year-over-year, Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.3 million compared to the prior year period to $5.9 million due to the aforementioned factors. Those factors also caused the Adjusted EBITDA margin to increase to 30% from 28% in the prior year period.

There were no recordable safety incidents among employees or contractors during the third quarter of 2018 at our Maine Timberlands.

Adoption of IFRS 15, Revenue from contracts with customers

IFRS 15 supersedes previous revenue standards (IAS 18, Revenue) and related interpretations and it applies to all revenue arising from contracts with customers. On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted IFRS 15 using the full retrospective approach. The adoption of this standard on January 1, 2018 resulted in a change in presentation from net to gross for timber services, which does not impact the Company’s operating earnings or net income. As a result of this change in presentation, net sales for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2017 increased by $5.1 million and $11.7 million, respectively, with a corresponding increase in operating costs and expenses. Net sales are net of discounts and rebates to customers. Revenue is recognized when control passes to the customer, which is generally when timber is delivered to the customer and actual quantities delivered are determined. Sales are governed primarily by contract and in some cases by standard industry terms. Pursuant to the Crown Lands Services Agreement, Acadian provides harvesting, transportation and other services to Crown licensees and sub-licensees. Acadian receives payment for these services which are recognized upon delivery of the timber and when actual quantities delivered are determined.

Market Outlook

The following contains forward-looking information about Acadian Timber Corp.’s market outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2018. Reference should be made to the the section entitled “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements” section of this news release. For a description of material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in the following, please see the Risk Factors section of our management’s discussion and analysis of Acadian’s most recent Annual Report and Annual Information Form available on our website at www.acadiantimber.com or filed with SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Acadian’s key markets include softwood sawtimber, hardwood sawtimber and hardwood pulpwood. Northeast North American softwood dimension sawmills represent over one third of Acadian’s end-use market and are the primary market for our softwood sawtimber.

Despite current very strong U.S. economic performance, key indicators suggest momentum in the U.S. housing market has slowed over the past few months. Tight construction labour markets and restrictive building regulations have continued to weigh on residential construction growth expectations. However, the primary catalysts to more conservative consensus housing start forecasts compared to the prior quarter have been persistent weak wage growth combined with rising interest rates and escalating negative sentiment on the impact of U.S. trade policy. The most recent forecasts anticipate year-over-year growth in starts ranging from flat to 5% for 2019. As single family starts, the largest lumber consuming segment of U.S. housing starts, are forecast to continue to recover from recent historically low levels, North American sawtimber demand is still expected to post modest year-over-year growth even under more conservative forecasts. The backdrop for housing demand over the medium term remains very positive reflecting continued pent-up demand for housing and improving demographics.

Average Q3 2018 quarterly benchmark Western Spruce-Pine-Fir and Southern Yellow Pine lumber prices declined 20% and 18%, respectively, from the prior quarter, with prices sliding towards average cash-cost levels by early Q4 2018. The significant swing in pricing, which has been well beyond seasonal norms, has been exacerbated by severe weather in the U.S. South that has reduced market demand. Forecasters anticipate that extensive announced market downtime, principally in the high log cost regions of British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest, coupled with ongoing demand growth, will support continued historically strong lumber pricing through 2019. By extension, Acadian anticipates continued strong support in end use markets for softwood sawtimber pricing through this period.

Hardwood sawtimber markets, typically oriented to millwork and higher value specialty markets, remain well balanced with a continued positive outlook for the foreseeable future. The outlook for global pulp markets remains strong, supported by encouraging demand and pricing dynamics, particularly in the containerboard and tissue segments. Hardwood pulpwood demand in Acadian’s operating region remains stable, with well balanced supply conditions continuing to support historically strong pricing. While softwood pulpwood markets, Acadian’s smallest product segment by volume and margin, remain under pressure, the recently announced re-start of a pulp mill in Maine during 2019 is expected to be a catalyst for a recovery in softwood pulpwood demand and pricing. In New Brunswick, biomass markets continue to be supported by strong export demand. While the biomass market in Maine remains weak, early-stage initiatives in wood-based liquid biofuels and pellets are progressing as are efforts to tap into biomass export markets.

Quarterly Dividend

Acadian is pleased to announce a dividend of $0.2825 per share, payable on January 15, 2019 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2018.

Acadian Timber Corp. is a leading supplier of primary forest products in Eastern Canada and the Northeastern U.S. With a total of 2.4 million acres of land under management, Acadian is the third largest timberland operator in New Brunswick and Maine.

Acadian owns and manages approximately 1.1 million acres of freehold timberlands in New Brunswick and Maine, and provides timber services relating to approximately 1.3 million acres of Crown licensed timberlands in New Brunswick. Acadian's products include softwood and hardwood sawlogs, pulpwood and biomass by-products, sold to approximately 85 regional customers.
