Management Commentary

“During the fourth quarter we experienced a normal seasonal slowdown in demand,” said David H. Hannah, Chairman and CEO of Reliance. “However, the fall-off from the prior quarter was less than typical, supporting a continuation of the general trends we experienced during the second half of the year with overall demand steadily improving. Unfortunately, pricing for our products declined 10.0% in 2013 over 2012 levels, including an unexpected 2.0% drop in the fourth quarter as compared to the prior quarter, significantly reducing our overall profitability in both the fourth quarter and the year. Despite the soft pricing environment, strong performance by our managers in the field resulted in FIFO gross profit margins holding steady and helped to somewhat mitigate the impact on our profitability.”

“Our Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.92 were in line with our expectations, although at the low end, due mainly to the fourth quarter softness in pricing. This amount excludes charges for an intangible write-off and restructuring charges related to our acquisition and integration of Metals USA. We acquired Metals USA, our largest acquisition to-date, in April 2013. Due to complementary products and customer end markets, we were able to close certain Metals USA and existing Reliance facilities in specific geographic markets in order to service our customers more effectively and in a more efficient manner,” stated Mr. Hannah.

Mr. Hannah continued, “While market conditions created challenges for our industry throughout 2013, Reliance generated full year net sales growth of 9.3% and tons sold were up 21.4% driven primarily by M&A activity. During 2013, we completed two acquisitions, highlighted by the Metals USA transaction that closed in the second quarter. We believe we are the acquirer of choice in our industry as evidenced by our proven, well-executed acquisition strategy that continues to enhance the overall performance of our acquired companies. Our strong cash flow from operations in 2013 of $633.3 million allowed us to reduce our debt from the levels reached after funding our $1.25 billion acquisition of Metals USA, resulting in ample liquidity for continued growth. Going forward, we expect to continue to selectively pursue acquisition opportunities that fit within our strategy for profitable growth.”

End-market Commentary

While the Company does not see any single end-market delivering outsized growth in 2014, ongoing strength in automotive (through the Company’s toll processing operations) along with solid operating results in aerospace, energy (oil and gas), semiconductor/electronics and manufactured goods, are expected. The Company also anticipates a mild recovery in non-residential construction in 2014.

  • Aerospace demand is expected to improve in 2014, although Reliance expects pricing will remain under some pressure due to excess mill capacity and higher industry-wide aluminum plate inventory levels.
  • Automotive, supported mainly by the Company’s toll processing operations in the U.S. and Mexico, was the one area of our business that grew in 2013 as compared to 2012. Reliance continues to anticipate solid automotive end-market performance in 2014.
  • Energy (oil and gas) demand for the products Reliance sells is expected to improve in 2014, along with slightly better pricing, despite lower demand and pricing levels in 2013 compared to the prior year.
  • Heavy industry continues to perform reasonably well. Reliance expects a modest improvement in 2014 in both demand and pricing.
  • Non-residential construction continues to show signs of a slow but steady recovery, albeit at significantly reduced demand levels from its peak. Reliance is cautiously optimistic that this important end-market will improve modestly in 2014.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

As of December 31, 2013, total debt outstanding was $2.11 billion, or a net debt-to-total capital ratio of 34.3%, down from 34.9% at September 30, 2013. The Company paid down $43.5 million of debt in the 2013 fourth quarter and had only $480.0 million outstanding on the $1.5 billion revolving credit facility at December 31, 2013. The Company generated $633.3 million in cash flow from operating activities in 2013, compared to cash flow from operating activities of $601.9 million during 2012. Reliance remains pleased with its overall financial position and strong cash flow.

Corporate Developments

Effective November 1, 2013, the Company acquired all of the capital stock of Haskins Steel Co., Inc. (“Haskins”), located in Spokane, Washington. Founded in 1955, Haskins processes and distributes primarily carbon steel and aluminum products of various shapes and sizes to a diverse customer base in the Pacific Northwest. Their in-house processing capabilities include shearing, sawing, burning and forming. Net sales for Haskins were approximately $31.5 million in the twelve months ended December 31, 2012.

On February 18, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.35 per share of common stock, an increase of $0.02 per share, or 6.1%. The dividend is payable on March 21, 2014 to shareholders of record as of March 6, 2014. The Company has paid regular quarterly dividends for 54 consecutive years. Cash dividends per share paid in 2013 were up 57.5% compared to 2012.

Business Outlook

As the U.S. economy continues its slow but steady recovery into 2014, metals pricing and demand are expected to demonstrate a measured improvement throughout the first quarter. As a result, for the first quarter ending March 31, 2014, management currently expects earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.20 to $1.30.

1   Gross profit, calculated as net sales less cost of sales, and gross profit margin, calculated as gross profit divided by net sales, are non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude depreciation and amortization expense associated with the corresponding sales. The majority of our orders are basic distribution with no processing services performed. For the remainder of our sales orders, we perform “first-stage” processing which is generally not labor intensive as we are simply cutting the metal to size. Because of this, the amount of related labor and overhead, including depreciation and amortization, are not significant and are excluded from our cost of sales. Therefore, our cost of sales is primarily comprised of the cost of the material we sell. We use gross profit and gross profit margin as shown above as measures of operating performance. Gross profit and gross profit margin are important operating and financial measures, as fluctuations in our gross profit margin can have a significant impact on our earnings. Gross profit and gross profit margin, as presented, are not necessarily comparable with similarly titled measures for other companies.
2 See accompanying Non-GAAP earnings reconciliation.
3 Net debt-to-total capital is calculated as total debt (net of cash) divided by total Reliance shareholders’ equity plus total debt (net of cash).
4 Calculations are based on the latest twelve months net income attributable to Reliance and beginning total Reliance shareholders’ equity.
5 Book value per share is calculated as total Reliance shareholders’ equity divided by outstanding common shares.

Our presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS over certain periods is an attempt to provide meaningful comparisons to our historical performance for our existing and future shareholders. Adjustments exclude charges for transaction costs as well as an intangible write-off and restructuring charges primarily related to our recent acquisition of Metals USA, which makes comparisons of our operating results between periods difficult using GAAP measures.
