AMCOL International Corporation (NYSE: ACO) Reports Second Quarter Results

Marketwired

HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL--(Marketwire -07/27/12)- For the second quarter of 2012, AMCOL International Corporation (ACO) generated diluted earnings per share attributable to its shareholders from continuing operations of $0.65 per share versus $0.42 per share in the prior year's quarter.

Net sales increased 6.1% to $257.5 million for the 2012 second quarter as compared to $242.8 million for the 2011 period. Excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, revenues would have increased 9.1%. Gross profit increased 19.5% while gross margin increased 320 basis points to 28.8%. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 7.4% to $43.3 million. Operating profit increased 41.7% with operating profit margins increasing by 300 basis points to 12.0%. Our effective tax rate for the 2012 quarter was 28.3%.

"Our second quarter results demonstrate that we are executing on our profitable growth strategy despite a volatile, global economy. The strength of AMCOL's diverse portfolio of products and services was demonstrated by strong segment performance in both Minerals & Materials and Oilfield Services while our Environmental segment continues to see weakened demand," said AMCOL President and CEO Ryan McKendrick.

"Minerals & Materials increased revenues 11% with operating profit increasing significantly. Increased sales of metalcasting products and drilling fluid products were the primary growth drivers," McKendrick continued.

"Our Environmental segment had another difficult quarter. Over forty-three percent of the segment's sales are in Europe, where sharp declines in overall construction activity are affecting both the lining and building materials markets. In addition, we are seeing continued softness in the domestic market for lining products. However, our domestic building materials and drilling products within the segment continue to perform well," McKendrick added.

McKendrick continued, "Our Oilfield Services' domestic activities, including coiled tubing, filtration, well testing, and nitrogen, all delivered another quarter of revenue growth. Our strategy to further develop services in international locations where we have an established presence is paying off as revenue from these locations, such as Brazil and Malaysia, almost doubled and now account for 25% of segment sales."

"Our outlook remains largely positive. Our strategy of standardizing business processes to support growth while broadening our technology portfolio and continuing to develop a global footprint in emerging markets is on track," he concluded.

STATEMENT OF OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS:

The statement of operations highlights are supported by the quarterly segment results schedules included in this press release. The following comments relate to our results for the current quarter as compared to the same quarter in the prior year, unless otherwise noted.

Net sales: Net sales increased $14.7 million or 6.1%.

Minerals & Materials: Increased volumes accounted for the increase in net sales as price increases were partially offset by unfavorable fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, principally the Turkish lira and South African rand. Metalcasting and drilling product sales to the oil and gas market increased significantly due to increased demand.

Environmental: Approximately 39% of the $13.5 million decrease in sales resulted from unfavorable foreign currency exchange rate movements, almost entirely in our European subsidiaries. The majority of the remaining decrease occurred in our European subsidiaries as a result of our decision to reduce our involvement in contracting services. Domestically, our lining product sales have decreased due to lower market demand; these reductions have overshadowed increased sales of our drilling products.

Oilfield Services: This segment has experienced strong growth due to an increase in both demand and our service capacity from recent acquisitions of equipment. Our domestic operations generated 58% of the increase in sales, the majority of which occurred in our coil tubing and nitrogen product lines. Internationally, nearly all of our operations experienced significant growth.

Transportation: Revenues decreased due primarily to lower shipment volumes. Driver availability has decreased given competition for their services in other markets, including the oil and gas shale regions near the Dakotas. Decreased fuel surcharges comprised 23% of the decrease in sales.

Gross profit: The increase in gross profits, $12.1 million or 19.5%, significantly exceeded the rate at which sales increased. Gross margin increased 320 basis points to 28.8%.

Minerals & Materials: Increased volumes accounted for two thirds of the increase in gross profit.

Environmental: Although gross profits decreased due to the decrease in sales, gross margins increased slightly for several reasons. First, our sales are more concentrated in higher margin building materials products, especially considering the decrease in contracting revenues in Europe. In addition, our international operations experienced slight increases in their gross margins due to price increases. Both of these increases were somewhat offset by lower margins in our domestic subsidiary that resulted from lower volumes, reflective of the decrease in lining product sales.

Oilfield Services: Increased sales and gross margins contributed to the growth in gross profits; gross margins improved 600 basis points. The increases occurred in both our foreign and domestic businesses. Domestically, our coil tubing and nitrogen services increased their margins significantly due to increased operating leverage. Our international operations are improving due to new management put in place in 2011 and greater economies of scale.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A): Excluding $1.0 million of favorable, one-time income related items in our Environmental segment in the second quarter, SG&A expenses increased $4.0 million, or 9.9%. On a combined basis, our Minerals & Materials and Oilfield Services segments' SG&A expenses increased $4.3 million, and most of this relates to increased employee headcounts, compensation and benefit expenses. Approximately $0.8 million of the $2.0 million reduction in SG&A expenses in our Environmental segment resulted from favorable foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, mostly in Europe; the remaining reduction relates primarily to the gains recorded as a result of favorable settlements on certain lawsuits.

Other, net: Other, net expenses increased $1.1 million due to losses on foreign currency transactions. The losses in 2012 relate largely to fluctuations in exchange rates between the USD and Malaysian ringgit, pound sterling, and South African rand as well as between the euro and Polish zloty.

Income tax expense: Income tax expense increased due to increased income. Our effective tax rate decreased 200 basis points due to differences in the distribution of income across our businesses worldwide. The effective tax rate for the 2012 quarter was 28.3%.

FINANCIAL POSITION AND CASH FLOW HIGHLIGHTS:

The paragraphs in this section discuss our comparison of our balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 to that as of December 31, 2011. We also make comparisons between cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Cash flow generated from operating activities increased largely due to improved performance of non-cash working capital, greater net income, and $6.1 million of increased non-cash charges. Approximately $3.1 million of these non-cash charges result from increased bad debt expenses relating to litigation matters in our Oilfield Services and Environmental segments. We also paid down $9.7 million of long-term debt during the period. Long-term debt as a percentage of total capitalization decreased 230 basis points to 37.1%.

Capital expenditures were $32.2 million as compared to $24.8 million in the prior year period. Expenditures associated with our start-up chromite operations were $4.5 million and $2.8 million in 2012 and 2011, respectively. In the current year, the majority of our capital spending occurred in our Oilfield Services and Minerals & Materials segments.

Dividends for 2012 remained constant at $0.18 per share for the quarter.
