“Our teams delivered solid earnings with a nice improvement sequentially compared to our second quarter,” said Andy Rose, President and CEO. “Steel Processing saw modest growth in automotive demand, but continued to be negatively impacted by inventory holding losses. Destocking trends we saw earlier this year in Consumer Products and Building Products appear to have abated, with volumes for many of these products starting to return to more seasonally normal levels.”

Consolidated Quarterly Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2023 were $1.1 billion, a decrease of $274.9 million, or 20%, from the comparable prior year quarter. The decrease was driven primarily by lower average selling prices in the Steel Processing business as steel prices declined significantly from the prior year quarter.

Gross margin increased $0.7 million from the prior year quarter to $143.8 million, as higher direct spreads in Steel Processing and a favorable mix in Building Products were largely offset by higher manufacturing expenses, up $23.2 million primarily due to inflationary pressures, and lower volume in the Consumer Products business.

Operating income for the current quarter was $30.1 million, a decrease of $7.5 million from the prior year quarter, as costs incurred in connection with the planned separation of the Company’s Steel Processing business (Worthington 2024) outpaced the year over year decline in impairment and restructuring charges to create a $5.0 pre-tax million headwind in the current quarter. Excluding these items, and a pre-tax benefit of $1.0 million related to true up of the Level5 earnout accrual, operating income was down $3.5 million due to a $3.1 million increase in SG&A expense driven primarily by the net impact of acquisitions and divestitures, partially offset by lower profit sharing and bonus expense.

Net interest expense was $6.0 million in the current quarter, down $2.1 million from the prior year quarter due to higher interest income, and to a lesser extent, the impact of lower average debt levels associated with short-term borrowings.

Equity income from unconsolidated joint ventures decreased $10.5 million from the prior year quarter driven by lower contributions from Serviacero and ClarkDietrich, down $4.9 million and $2.5 million, respectively, combined with the divestiture of ArtiFlex which had contributed $1.8 million in the prior year quarter.

Income tax expense was $12.1 million in the current quarter compared to $18.7 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was driven by lower pre-tax earnings. Tax expense in the current quarter reflects an estimated annual effective rate of 22.8% compared to 23.2% in the prior year quarter.

Balance Sheet

At quarter-end, total debt of $693.2 million, was down $51.4 million from May 31, 2022, on lower short-term borrowings. The Company had $267.2 million of cash at quarter end, an increase of $232.8 million from May 31, 2022, as lower steel prices resulted in significantly lower working capital in the current period.

Quarterly Segment Results

Steel Processing’s net sales totaled $757.0 million, down 28% or $295.6 million, from the prior year quarter, driven almost entirely by lower average selling prices. Adjusted EBIT was up slightly over the prior year quarter to $7.8 million, as operating income improved although this was largely offset by a lower contribution of equity income from Serviacero which was down $4.9 million. Operating income was up $8.1 million over the prior year quarter to $10.8 million. Excluding the $3.2 million of combined impairment and restructuring charges in the prior year quarter, operating income was up $4.9 million over the prior year quarter, as the favorable impact of higher spreads was partially offset by higher manufacturing costs. Inventory holding losses, estimated to be $26.6 million in the current quarter, were comparable to the $24.9 million in the prior year quarter. The mix of direct versus toll tons processed was 56% to 44% in the current quarter, compared to 51% to 49% in the prior year quarter.

Consumer Products’ net sales totaled $162.6 million, up 1%, or $0.9 million, over the prior year quarter due to higher average selling prices, which were partially offset by lower volumes and a change in product mix. Adjusted EBIT was down $8.8 million in the current quarter to $17.9 million, as the favorable impact of higher average selling prices was more than offset by lower volumes and higher input and production costs.

Building Products’ net sales totaled $151.9 million, up 14%, or $19.0 million, over the prior year quarter on the combined impact of a favorable product mix and higher average selling prices, which were partially offset by lower overall volumes. Adjusted EBIT increased $1.9 million from the prior year quarter to $51.5 million primarily due to a favorable product mix and higher average selling prices, which were partially offset by higher input and production costs and lower contributions of equity income. Equity income for the current quarter totaled $37.8 million, down $2.2 million from the prior year quarter, as ClarkDietrich’s results declined $2.5 million from the record levels in the prior year quarter while WAVE’s results improved slightly.

Sustainable Energy Solutions’ net sales totaled $31.8 million, up 3%, or $0.8 million, from the prior year quarter primarily due to higher average selling prices. Adjusted EBIT was a loss of $1.4 million, favorable by $1.4 million to the prior year quarter’s loss, as higher average selling prices improved margins, but were partially offset by higher production costs.

Worthington 2024

On September 29, 2022, the Company announced that its Board of Directors approved a plan to pursue a separation of the Company’s Steel Processing business which it expects to complete by early 2024. This plan is referred to as “Worthington 2024.” Worthington 2024 will result in two independent, publicly traded companies that are more specialized and fit-for-purpose, with enhanced prospects for growth and value creation. Worthington plans to effect the separation via a distribution of stock of the Steel Processing business, which is expected to be tax-free to shareholders for U.S. federal income tax purposes. A dedicated area of the Company’s website has been established with more information and will be regularly updated as new details become available at www.WorthingtonIndustries.com/W24.

Recent Developments

  • On February 2, 2023, the Company announced the senior leadership teams for New Worthington and Worthington Steel which will be effective upon the completion of the planned separation of the Steel Processing business.

  • On March 22, 2023, Worthington’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.31 per share payable on June 29, 2023, to shareholders of record on June 15, 2023.

Outlook

“We have good momentum heading into our fourth quarter and are optimistic that underlying demand for our key end markets will remain healthy,” Rose said. “Work continues on our Worthington 2024 plan, and we recently announced the future senior leadership teams for both companies. We remain confident that our planned separation will create two, distinct market leading companies that will generate long-term value for our shareholders.”

Conference Call

Worthington will review fiscal 2023 third quarter results during its quarterly conference call on March 23, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time. Details regarding the conference call can be found on the Company website at www.WorthingtonIndustries.com.

WORTHINGTON INDUSTRIES, INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES / SUPPLEMENTAL DATA
(In thousands, except volume and per share amounts)

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The Company also presents certain non-GAAP financial measures including adjusted operating income, adjusted net earnings attributable to controlling interest and adjusted net earnings per diluted share attributable to controlling interest, and for purposes of evaluating segment performance, adjusted earnings before interest and taxes attributable to controlling interest (“adjusted EBIT”) and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization attributable to controlling interest (“adjusted EBITDA”). These non-GAAP financial measures typically exclude impairment and restructuring charges (gains), but may also exclude other items that management believes are not reflective of, and thus should not be included when evaluating the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s performance, engage in financial and operational planning, and determine incentive compensation and believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they provide additional perspective of the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations. Additionally, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they allow for meaningful comparisons and analysis of trends in the Company’s businesses and enables investors to evaluate operations and future prospects in the same manner as management.

The following provides a reconciliation to adjusted operating income, adjusted net earnings attributable to controlling interest and adjusted earnings per diluted share attributable to controlling interest from the most comparable GAAP measures for the three months ended February 28, 2023 and 2022.

(2) Reflects the release of accrued compensation related to the first annual earnout opportunity associated with the Level 5 acquisition.

 

(3) Reflects direct and incremental costs incurred in connection with the anticipated tax-free spin-off of the Company's Steel Processing business, including audit, advisory, and legal costs.

 

(4) On August 3, 2022, the Company sold its 50% noncontrolling equity investment in ArtiFlex Manufacturing, LLC, resulting in a pre-tax loss of $16,059, including $300 of deal costs during the three months ended February 28, 2023.

 

(5) During August of 2023 the Company completed a pension lift-out transaction to transfer a portion of the total projected benefit obligation of The Gerstenslager Company Bargaining Unit Employees' Pension Plan to a third-party insurance company, resulting in a non-cash settlement charge of $4,774 to accelerate a portion of the overall deferred pension cost.

 


To further assist in the analysis of segment results for the periods presented, the following volume and net sales information for the three and nine months ended February 28, 2023 and 2022 has been provided along with a reconciliation of adjusted EBIT and adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP measure, which is operating income for purposes of measuring segment profit:
