LP Building Solutions Reports Second Quarter of 2022 Results, Provides Capital Allocation Update and Q3 2022 Outlook


NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Louisiana-Pacific Corporation (LP) (NYSE: LPX) today reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Key Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2022, Compared to the Second Quarter of the Prior Year

 

(1) This is a non-GAAP financial measure. See "Use of Non-GAAP Information", "Reconciliation of Net Income to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted Income, and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS and "Reconciliation of Income from discontinued operations to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations. Non-GAAP Adjusted Income from discontinued operations, and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS from discontinued operations" below.

Capital Allocation Update

"Including the EWP segment, the second quarter of 2022 was another record sales quarter for LP," said LP Chair and Chief Executive Officer Brad Southern. "Despite ongoing raw material inflation and logistics challenges, LP's teams consistently executed our strategy to meet sustained customer demand. The new Siding mill in Houlton, Maine, is ramping up ahead of schedule, and contributed to Siding reaching a quarterly sales record of $356 million. With Structural Solutions mix exceeding 50% for the first six months of 2022, we believe LP is now the leading producer of specialty OSB, offering the widest array of specialty OSB building solutions. While we are monitoring inflation and interest rates closely, so far we see few signs of diminished demand for our products."

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 decreased year-over-year by $38 million (or 3%). This included a $105 million (or 14%) decrease in OSB revenue (22% lower OSB prices on 10% higher volumes, primarily driven by the Peace Valley mill restart), offset partially by Siding Solutions revenue growth of $68 million (or 24%).

Income from continuing operations attributed to LP for the second quarter of 2022 decreased year-over-year by $138 million (or 28%) to $348 million, or $4.28 per diluted share. This reflects a $174 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA, $13 million of insurance recoveries received in 2022, and a decrease in the provision for income tax of $27 million driven by lower pre-tax income in the current year.

Income from discontinued operations for the second quarter of 2022 increased year-over-year by $26 million to $37 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, primarily due to better realization of EWP prices.

First Six Months of 2022 Highlights

Net sales for the first six months of 2022 increased year-over-year by $235 million (or 11%). This included a $100 million (or 8%) increase in OSB revenue (11% higher volumes, primarily driven by the Peace Valley mill restart on 3% lower OSB prices) and Siding Solutions growth of $116 million (or 20%).

Income from continuing operations attributed to LP for the first six months of 2022 decreased year-over-year by $33 million (or 4%) to $770 million, or $9.19 per diluted share. The decrease primarily reflects a $30 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA.

Income from discontinued operations for the first six months of 2022 increased year-over-year by $85 million to $99 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, primarily due to better realization of EWP prices and a $39 million gain associated with the sale of LP's 50% equity interest in two joint ventures that produce I-joists.

Segment Results

Siding

The Siding segment serves diverse end markets with a broad product offering of engineered wood siding, trim, and fascia, including LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding, LP® SmartSide® ExpertFinish® Trim & Siding, LP BuilderSeries® Lap Siding, and LP® Outdoor Building Solutions® (collectively referred to as Siding Solutions).

The combined effects of list price increases and improving mix of innovative products drove year-over-year increases in the average net selling price for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. Additionally, the production ramp-up of the Houlton facility was ahead of schedule and contributed almost half of the year-over-year sales volume increase during the three months ended June 30, 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA increased for the three months ended June 30, 2022, reflecting price and volume growth largely offset by $29 million of raw material and freight inflation and $7 million of discretionary investments in support of future growth, including siding mill conversions and sales and marketing costs. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, reflects price and volume growth offset primarily by $55 million of raw material and freight inflation and $19 million of discretionary investments in support of future growth, including siding mill and sales and marketing costs.

Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

The OSB segment manufactures and distributes OSB structural panel products including the value-added OSB portfolio known as LP Structural Solutions (LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier, LP WeatherLogic® Air & Water Barrier, LP Legacy® Premium Sub-Flooring, and LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated Sheathing) and LP® TopNotch® Sub-Flooring. OSB is manufactured using wood strands arranged in layers and bonded with resins.

OSB average net selling prices decreased year-over-year by 22% on 10% higher OSB sales volume for the three months ended June 30, 2022, resulting in a 14% decrease in net sales. OSB average net selling prices decreased year-over-year by 3% on 11% higher OSB sales volume for the six months ended June 30, 2022, resulting in an 8% increase in net sales.

The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $162 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, reflects $195 million from lower prices and $22 million of increased raw material inflation offset partially by $54 million from higher sales volume. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $11 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, reflects $65 million from lower prices and $45 million of increased raw material inflation offset partially by $96 million from higher sales volume.

South America

LP's South America segment manufactures and distributes OSB structural panel and siding products in South America and certain export markets. This segment has manufacturing operations in two countries, Chile and Brazil, and operates sales offices in Chile, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Argentina, and Paraguay.

Net sales in South America decreased year-over-year by 5% for the three months ended June 30, 2022, predominately due to 6% lower sales volume. Net sales increased year-over-year by 8% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, due in large part to higher OSB prices.

The year-over-year decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, reflects lower sales volume and higher costs for raw material costs. The year-over-year decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $3 million for the first six months of 2022 reflects the net effect of lower sales volume, higher raw materials costs, and higher OSB prices.

Q3 2022 Outlook and 2022 Capital Expenditure Guidance

Our guidance is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, including those set forth below under "Forward-Looking Statements."

 

(2) This is a non-GAAP financial measure. With respect to Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2022, certain items that affect net income on a GAAP basis, such as product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, and other non-operating items, that would be required to be included in the comparable forecasted GAAP measures cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, and LP is unable to quantify such amounts that would be required to be included in the comparable forecasted GAAP measures, without unreasonable effort. As such, the Company is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of GAAP net income, or a corresponding reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following, which may be amplified by the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the sanctions (including their duration), and other measures being imposed in response to this conflict, as well as any escalation or expansion of economic disruption or the conflict's current scope: impacts from public health issues (including global pandemics, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic) on the economy, demand for our products or our operations, including the actions and recommendations of governmental authorities to contain such public health issues; changes in governmental fiscal and monetary policies, including tariffs and levels of employment; changes in general economic conditions, including impacts from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; changes in the cost and availability of capital; changes in the level of home construction and repair and remodel activity; changes in competitive conditions and prices for our products; changes in the relationship between the supply of and demand for building products; changes in the financial or business conditions of third-party wholesale distributors and dealers; changes in the relationship between supply of and demand for raw materials, including wood fiber and resins, used in manufacturing our products; changes in the cost and availability of energy, primarily natural gas, electricity, and diesel fuel; changes in the cost and availability of transportation; impact of manufacturing our products internationally; difficulties in the launch or production ramp-up of newly introduced products; unplanned interruptions to our manufacturing operations, such as explosions, fires, inclement weather, natural disasters, accidents, equipment failures, labor shortages or disruptions, transportation interruptions, supply interruptions, public health issues (including pandemics and quarantines), riots, civil insurrection or social unrest, looting, protests, strikes, and street demonstrations; changes in other significant operating expenses; changes in currency values and exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and other currencies, particularly the Canadian dollar, Brazilian real, and Chilean peso; changes in, and compliance with, general and industry-specific laws and regulations, including environmental and health and safety laws and regulations, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-bribery laws, laws related to our international business operations, and changes in building codes and standards; changes in tax laws and interpretations thereof; changes in circumstances giving rise to environmental liabilities or expenditures; warranty costs exceeding our warranty reserves; challenges to or exploitation of our intellectual property or other proprietary information by others in the industry; changes in the funding requirements of our defined benefit pension plans; the resolution of existing and future product-related litigation, environmental proceedings and remediation efforts, and other legal or environmental proceedings or matters; the effect of covenants and events of default contained in our debt instruments; the amount and timing of any repurchases of our common stock and the payment of dividends on our common stock, which will depend on market and business conditions and other considerations; cybersecurity events affecting our information technology systems or those of our third-party providers and the related costs and impact of any disruption on our business; and acts of public authorities, war, civil unrest, natural disasters, fire, floods, earthquakes, inclement weather, and other matters beyond our control. For additional information about factors that could cause actual results, events, and circumstances to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, please refer to LP's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). We urge you to consider all of the risks, uncertainties, and factors identified above or discussed in such reports carefully in evaluating the forward-looking statements in this news release. We cannot assure you that the results reflected in or implied by any forward-looking statement will be realized or even if substantially realized, that those results will have the forecasted or expected consequences and effects for or on our operations or financial performance. The forward-looking statements made today are as of the date of this news release. Except as required by law, LP undertakes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements to reflect new information, subsequent events, or circumstances.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

In evaluating our business, we utilize non-GAAP financial measures that fall within the meaning of SEC Regulation G and Regulation S-K Item 10(e), which we believe provide users of the financial information with additional meaningful comparison to prior reported results. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized definitions and are not defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In this press release, we disclose income attributed to LP from continuing operations before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and exclude stock-based compensation expense, loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, pension settlement charges, and other non-operating items as Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations (Adjusted EBITDA), which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We have included Adjusted EBITDA in this report because we view it as an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe that it is frequently used by interested persons in the evaluation of companies that have different financing and capital structures and/or tax rates. We also disclose income attributed to LP from continuing operations, excluding loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, interest expense outside of normal operations, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, gain (loss) on acquisition, pension settlement charges, and adjusting for a normalized tax rate as Adjusted Income (Adjusted Income). We also disclose Adjusted Diluted EPS, which is calculated as Adjusted Income divided by diluted shares outstanding. We believe that Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted Income are useful measures for evaluating our ability to generate earnings and that providing these measures should allow interested persons to more readily compare the earnings for past and future periods. We also disclose income from discontinued operations, before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and exclude stock-based compensation expense, other operating credits and charges, net, and other non-operating items attributable to discontinued operations (Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations), income from discontinued operations, excluding other operating credits and charges, net and adjusting for a normalized tax rate (Adjusted Income from discontinued operations), and Adjusted Income divided by diluted shares outstanding (Adjusted Diluted EPS from discontinued operations), which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations, Adjusted Income from discontinued operations, and Adjusted Diluted EPS from discontinued operations are useful measures in this period for evaluating our earnings prior to our entry into an asset purchase agreement to sell the assets of the EWP segment as of June 21, 2022 and that providing these measures should allow interested persons to more readily compare the earnings for past and future periods.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations, Adjusted Income from discontinued operations, and Adjusted Diluted EPS from discontinued operations are not substitutes for the U.S. GAAP measures of net income and net income per diluted share or for any other U.S. GAAP measures of operating performance. It should be noted that other companies may present similarly titled measures differently, and therefore, as presented by us, these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS, Adjusted EBITDA from discontinued operations, Adjusted Income from discontinued operations, and Adjusted Diluted EPS from discontinued operations have material limitations as performance measures because they exclude items that are actually incurred or experienced in connection with the operation of our business.

LOUISIANA-PACIFIC CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

The following tables set forth: (1) housing starts, (2) our North American sales volume, and (3) Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We consider these items to be key performance indicators because LP's management uses these metrics to evaluate our business and trends, measure our performance, and make strategic decisions, and believes that the key performance indicators presented provide additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of LP. These key performance indicators should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the U.S. GAAP financial measures presented herein. These measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled performance indicators used by other companies.

We monitor housing starts, which is a leading external indicator of residential construction in the United States that correlates with the demand for many of our products. We believe that this is a useful measure for evaluating our results and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily compare our sales volume for past and future periods to an external indicator of product demand. Other companies may present housing start data differently and therefore, as presented by us, our housing start data may not be comparable to similarly-titled indicators reported by other companies.

The following table sets forth housing starts for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

1Actual U.S. Housing starts data reported by U.S. Census Bureau as published through July 19, 2022.

We monitor sales volumes for our products in our Siding, OSB and EWP segments, which we define as the number of units of our products sold within the applicable period. Evaluating sales volume by product type helps us identify and address changes in product demand, broad market factors that may affect our performance, and opportunities for future growth. It should be noted that other companies may present sales volumes differently and, therefore, as presented by us, sales volumes may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that sales volumes can be a useful measure for evaluating and understanding our business.

The following table sets forth sales volumes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

We measure OEE of each of our mills to track improvements in the utilization and productivity of our manufacturing assets. OEE is a composite metric that considers asset uptime (adjusted for capital project downtime and similar events), production rates, and finished product quality. It should be noted that other companies may present OEE differently and, therefore, as presented by us, OEE may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that when used in conjunction with other metrics, OEE can be a useful measure for evaluating our ability to generate profits, and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily monitor operational improvements.

OEE for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 for each of our segments is listed below:
