/EIN News/ -- KOKOMO, Ind., April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Haynes International, Inc. (NASDAQ GM: HAYN) (the “Company”), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of technologically advanced high-performance alloys, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended March 31, 2021. In addition, the Company announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per outstanding share.

“We are encouraged by the improvement in our results this quarter. Sequentially, revenue grew 13.7% and gross margins improved by 880 basis points. In addition, working capital improvements, led by inventory, along with cost reductions over the past 12 months have resulted in $70 million of cash on our balance sheet,” said Michael L. Shor, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with our market share driven growth in our IGT market and we expect meaningful improvement in the commercial aerospace market later this calendar year. Looking at our business in general, industry data points in our key markets are beginning to turn favorable.”

2nd Quarter Results

Net Revenues. Net revenues were $82.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a decrease of 26.4% from $111.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2020. Volume was 3.5 million pounds in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a decrease of 18.6% from 4.3 million pounds in the same period of fiscal 2020. The decrease in volume is primarily attributable to the slowdown in demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, primarily impacting the aerospace supply chain, partially offset by increased sales pounds in the flue-gas desulfurization market. The product average selling price was $22.05 per pound in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a decrease of 8.7% from $24.15 per pound in the same period of fiscal 2020. The decrease in average selling price per pound largely reflects a lower value product mix and other pricing considerations, which decreased the average selling price per pound by approximately $3.16, partially offset by higher market prices of raw materials, which increased average selling price per pound by approximately $1.06.

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales was $73.7 million, or 89.8% of net revenues, in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $92.3 million, or 82.7% of net revenues, in the same period of fiscal 2020. The decrease was primarily due to lower volumes combined with the Company’s actions taken to lower costs in response to COVID-19, partially offset by reduced absorption due to the lower volumes.

Gross Profit. As a result of the above factors, gross profit was $8.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a decrease of $10.9 million from the same period of fiscal 2020. Gross margin as a percentage of net revenue decreased to 10.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to 17.3% in the same period of fiscal 2020.

Selling, General and Administrative Expense.   Selling, general and administrative expense was $11.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, an increase of $0.5 million, or 4.4%, from the same period of fiscal 2020. Selling, general and administrative expense as a percentage of net revenues increased to 13.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 9.7% for the same period of fiscal 2020. Changes in incentive compensation expense and foreign exchange losses were partially offset by cost saving measures, primarily due to headcount reductions, reduced executive salaries, reduced board fees and reduced travel and entertainment expenses.

Research and Technical Expense. Research and technical expense was $0.9 million, or 1.1% of net revenue, for the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $1.0 million, or 0.9% of net revenue, in the same period of fiscal 2020. The reduction in spend as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2020 is primarily attributable to lower salaries and wages as a result of lower hours worked and reduced headcount.

Operating Income/(Loss). As a result of the above factors, operating loss in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was ($3.7) million compared to operating income of $7.5 million in the same period of fiscal 2020.

Nonoperating retirement benefit expense. Nonoperating retirement benefit expense was $0.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $1.7 million in the same period of fiscal 2020. The decrease in expense was primarily driven by favorable retiree health care spending and higher than expected return on plan assets.

Income Taxes.   Income tax benefit was $0.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, a difference of $2.2 million from income tax expense of $1.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, driven primarily by a difference in income (loss) before income taxes of $9.9 million. Additionally, income tax benefit is being adversely impacted by certain expenses related to executive compensation that are deemed non-deductible.

Net Income/(Loss). As a result of the above factors, net loss in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was ($3.6) million, compared to net income of $4.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2020.

Volumes, Competition and Pricing

Overall volume improved sequentially in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 to 3.5 million pounds which was the best volume quarter since the pandemic began roughly one year ago. All four of the Company’s market categories improved with overall volume improving 26.1% in the second quarter compared sequentially to the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Management believes the first quarter was the bottom and that we have now come off the bottom of this COVID-19 driven downturn from a volume perspective. Looking at volume on a year-over-year basis, volume shipped decreased 18.6% with pounds shipped into the aerospace market down 47.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to the same period last year which was mostly prior to the announcement of the virus as a pandemic or a national emergency. The significant reduction in aerospace demand continues to be the main driver of our low overall levels due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Volumes shipped into the industrial gas turbine market and other markets increased in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to the same period last year while the volumes shipped into the chemical processing market remained relatively flat.

The product average selling price per pound in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $22.05, which decreased both sequentially and year-over-year due primarily to product mix. The Company continues to pursue price increases in its high-value differentiated products while also pursuing volume increases with competitively priced quotes of commodity product.

Gross Profit Margin Trend Performance

The significant drop in volumes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic compressed margins significantly in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2020 to 3.3% and 4.9%, respectively. The volume impact was even more significant in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, compressing gross margins to 1.4% with volumes and revenue at their lowest point. Throughout this low volume COVID driven downturn, the Company faced the industry-wide challenge of reducing spending commensurate with reductions in production volume. Fixed overhead costs incurred that could not be reduced proportionally to reduced volume were directly charged to cost of sales as follows: $5.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, 4.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, $5.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, and $2.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Gross margins in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 improved sequentially by 880 basis points, primarily due to higher volumes combined with solid cost controls.  

Backlog

The Company has continued to experience lower than normal order entry levels attributable primarily to the global COVID-19 pandemic and its unprecedented impacts on the economy, including significant supply chain inventory reductions, however, the reduction in backlog over the past four quarters appears to have levelled out. Backlog was $140.9 million at March 31, 2021, a decrease of $4.3 million, or 2.9%, from $145.1 million at December 31, 2020. Backlog pounds at March 31, 2021 increased sequentially during the first quarter of fiscal 2021 by 0.3% as compared to December 31, 2020. The average selling price of products in the Company’s backlog decreased to $25.06 per pound at March 31, 2021 from $25.89 per pound at December 31, 2020, reflecting a change in product mix to lower value products. Visibility continues to be limited due to the uncertainty surrounding the impact of COVID-19 and the various mitigation measures undertaken within the various supply chains.

Capital Spending

During the first six months of fiscal 2021, capital investment was $2.1 million, and total planned capital expenditures for fiscal 2021 are expected to be approximately $10.0 million to allow for maintaining reliability within operations.

Working Capital

Controllable working capital, which includes accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expenses, was $232.6 million at March 31, 2021, a decrease of $32.3 million, or 12.2%, from $264.9 million at September 30, 2020. The decrease resulted primarily from inventory and accounts receivable decreasing $19.3 million and $5.0 million, respectively, during the first six months of fiscal 2021 and accounts payable and accrued expenses increasing by $8.1 million during the first six months of fiscal 2021.  

Liquidity

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $69.8 million at March 31, 2021, compared to $47.2 million at September 30, 2020.  Additionally, there were zero borrowings against the line of credit outstanding as of March 31, 2021.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months of fiscal 2021 was $31.1 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $0.8 million in the first six months of fiscal 2020, an increase of $30.3 million. Cash flow from operating activities in the first six months of fiscal 2021 was favorably impacted by a decrease in inventory of $22.2 million during the first six months of fiscal 2021 as compared to an increase in inventory of $21.2 million during the same period of fiscal 2020, partially offset by a net loss of $(11.7) million during the first six months of fiscal 2021 as compared to net income of $7.3 million during the same period of fiscal 2020. Additionally, increases in accounts payable of $7.5 million had a favorable impact on the cash flow from operating activities in the first six months of fiscal 2021 as compared to decreases in accounts payable of $(7.7) million during the same period of fiscal 2020. This was partially offset by lower decreases in accounts receivable of $5.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021 as compared to increases of $11.1 million during the same period of fiscal 2020.

Net cash used in investing activities was $2.1 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021 which was lower than cash used in investing activities of $4.1 million during the same period of fiscal 2020 due to lower additions to property, plant and equipment.

Net cash used in financing activities was $6.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2021, a difference of $31.6 million from cash provided by financing activities, primarily driven by the borrowing of $30.0 million against the revolving line of credit during the first six months of fiscal 2020 in addition to cash paid for debt issuance costs in the first six months of fiscal 2021 resulting from the new U.S. revolving credit facility (described below). Dividends paid of $5.6 million during the first six months of fiscal 2021 were comparable to the same period of fiscal 2020.

Dividend Declared

On April 29, 2021, the Company announced that the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per outstanding share of the Company’s common stock. The dividend is payable June 15, 2021 to stockholders of record at the close of business on June 1, 2021. Any future dividends will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

Guidance

The reduction in aerospace demand continues to be the main driver of the Company’s overall low sales levels. The Company believes that the aerospace market will begin to show meaningful incremental improvement late this calendar year. Therefore, it is expected that the upcoming third quarter fiscal 2021 revenue and earnings will be similar to the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company expects continued solid liquidity throughout fiscal 2021 and to be favorably positioned for the recovery.
