Net sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 increased by 4 percent sequentially primarily due to higher realized aluminum prices.

ANNUNCIO PUBBLICITARIO

Century reported net income attributable to Century stockholders of $7.5 million for the second quarter of 2023, a $46.1 million improvement sequentially. Second quarter results were impacted by $8.2 million of net exceptional items, in particular $6.6 million lower of cost or net realizable value adjustment, net of tax, $3.6 million in curtailment costs related to the Hawesville plant, $1.6 million in share-based compensation costs and $0.7 million related to one-time transaction costs associated with the Jamalco acquisition, partially offset by $(4.3) million of unrealized gains on derivative instruments. Thus, Century reported an adjusted net income of $15.5 million for the second quarter of 2023, a $26.8 million improvement sequentially.

Adjusted EBITDA attributable to Century stockholders for the second quarter of 2023 was $29.5 million. This was an improvement of $5.4 million from the prior quarter, primarily driven by lower energy costs, partially offset by unfavorable sales mix and planned for operational spend to maintain stability.

Century's liquidity position at quarter end was $231.1 million, a decrease of $10.9 million from the prior quarter.

“Global conditions remain complex, with rising interest rates slowing Western economies over the first half and impacting our markets,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer Jesse Gary. “Despite these macro challenges, Century’s continued focus on cost discipline and operational performance puts us in a strong position to continue to deliver robust results despite a declining aluminum price.”

“We made good progress over the second quarter towards integrating our new Jamalco operations into the broader Century team,” continued Mr. Gary. “In Iceland, our billet casthouse project remains on schedule to deliver Natur-AlTM green billet products in the first quarter of 2024. Overall, operational performance across Century’s smelters was excellent in the quarter; we will remain focused over the back half of the year on consistent and safe operational execution.”

Third Quarter 2023 Outlook
The company expects third quarter Adjusted EBITDA to range between $10 to $20 million based on decreased LME prices and VAP sales, partially offset by improved volume and lower raw material prices and operating costs.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to evaluate Century's financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons of this period’s results with prior periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that management does not believe are indicative of Century’s ongoing operating performance and ability to generate cash. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures enhance an overall understanding of Century’s performance and our investors’ ability to review Century’s business from the same perspective as management. The tables below, under the heading "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, Century's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA included in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations in conjunction with the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures.
