- Full-year 2020 consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $205.9 million, which was above our revised guidance range of $190 million to $200 million; fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $37.0 million

- Operating cash flow was $157.8 million for the full-year 2020, above our revised guidance of $116 million to $136 million

- Full-year 2021 consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be $215 million to $230 million

LISLE, Ill., Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SunCoke Energy, Inc. (NYSE: SXC) (the "Company" or "Suncoke") today reported fourth quarter and full-year 2020 results, reflecting strong and resilient performance from our cokemaking business during an unprecedented and challenging year.

SunCoke Energy, Inc.
SunCoke Energy, Inc.

"In 2020, while dealing with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, our Domestic Coke fleet demonstrated excellent cost discipline and delivered extraordinary results despite running at sub-optimal levels. We extended expiring contracts with our customers in exchange for providing near-term coke supply relief, delivered robust cash flows and made significant progress towards our capital allocation objectives," said Mike Rippey, President and Chief Executive Officer of SunCoke Energy, Inc. "We also implemented a company-wide cost-reduction initiative resulting in $10 million annualized savings and developed a new product line of foundry coke during this year, further positioning SunCoke for sustained success in the future."

Looking forward, the Company expects 2021 consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to be between $215 million and $230 million, driven by our Domestic Coke plants operating at full capacity and higher volumes at Logistics.

Rippey continued, "As we move forward in 2021, we will remain focused on executing against our objectives of excellent safety performance, operational excellence and balanced capital allocation. Additionally, we will work towards further enhancing our customer contracts and providing stability to our coke operations. We will also continue our work to optimize CMT with additional products and customers. We are committed to positioning the Company for sustained success and delivering significant value to SunCoke stakeholders."

Revenues decreased $87.1 million and $267.3 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, primarily reflecting lower sales volumes in both Domestic Coke and Logistics segments.

Fourth quarter and full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $13.8 million and $42.0 million, respectively, reflecting lower volumes, which were partially offset by operating cost savings in our Domestic Coke and Logistics segments.

Net loss attributable to SXC for the fourth quarter 2020 increased $3.6 million from the same prior year period, driven by lower operating results discussed above, mostly offset by income tax benefits, a gain on the extinguishment of our debt and slightly lower depreciation expense recognized during the current year period.

Net income attributable to SXC for the full-year 2020 increased $156.0 million as compared to 2019 driven largely by the absence of non-cash impairment related charges at Logistics, net of taxes, of $174.8 million recorded during the third quarter of 2019. The impact of the impairment related charges recorded during the prior year period were partly offset by lower depreciation expense, lower interest on lower debt balances as well as a larger gain on extinguishment of debt recorded during 2020 as compared to 2019.

Reflects Domestic Coke Adjusted EBITDA divided by Domestic Coke sales volumes.

  • Revenues decreased $83.7 million and $223.7 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, compared with the same prior year periods, reflecting lower volumes across most of the fleet as well as the pass-through of lower coal costs, partially offset by increased volumes at Indiana Harbor from the rebuilt ovens, which were completed during 2019.

  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $8.8 million and $9.7 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, as operating and maintenance cost savings across the Domestic Coke fleet partially offset the decrease in volume discussed above.

Logistics
Logistics consists of the handling and mixing services of coal and other aggregates at our Convent Marine Terminal ("CMT"), Lake Terminal, Kanawha River Terminals ("KRT") and Dismal River Terminal ("DRT").

Reflects inbound tons handled during the period.

  • Revenues decreased $3.1 million for the fourth quarter 2020 and $36.8 million for the full-year 2020. Lower demand and depressed export pricing drove lower throughput volumes in the fourth quarter and full-year 2020.

  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.8 million for the fourth quarter 2020 and $25.3 million for the full-year 2020 due to coal customer bankruptcy partially offset by operating and maintenance cost savings.

Brazil Coke
Brazil Coke consists of a cokemaking facility in Vitória, Brazil, which we operate for an affiliate of ArcelorMittal.

  • Revenues were $8.8 million and $31.6 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, reflecting a decrease of $0.3 million and $6.8 million, respectively, as compared to the same prior year periods. The decrease in full year was driven by lower volumes and the unfavorable impact of foreign currency.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.0 million and $13.5 million for the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, a decrease of $0.3 million and $2.5 million, respectively, as compared with the same prior year periods. The decrease in full year was mainly due to lower volumes.

Corporate and Other
Corporate and other expenses, which includes activity from our legacy coal mining business, were $16.0 million and $41.9 million during the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, $2.9 million and $4.5 million higher than during the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, respectively. Corporate expenses in the current year periods included foundry related research and development costs of $1.5 million and $3.9 million during the fourth quarter and full-year 2020, respectively, as well as higher legacy costs of approximately $2.0 million during both the fourth quarter and full-year of 2020, respectively, as compared to the same prior year periods. These increases to corporate and other expense were partly offset by lower employee related expenses.

2021 OUTLOOK

Our 2021 guidance is based on our Domestic Coke plants running at full capacity with uncontracted capacity filled by export sales and Foundry coke sales. It also assumes higher volumes at Logistics facilities.

Our 2021 guidance is as follows:

  • Domestic coke total production is expected to be approximately 4.1 million tons

  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be $215 million to $230 million

  • Capital expenditures are projected to be approximately $80 million

  • Cash generated by operations is estimated to be between $160 million and $180 million

  • Cash taxes are projected to be between $5 million to $10 million

DEFINITIONS

  • Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted for any impairments, (gain) loss on extinguishment of debt, restructuring costs, changes to our contingent consideration liability related to our acquisition of CMT, and/or transaction costs incurred as part of the Simplification Transaction. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to net income or operating income under accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures in other businesses. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure in assessing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it highlights trends in our business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP measures and because it eliminates items that have less bearing on our operating performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be considered a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to SXC represents Adjusted EBITDA less Adjusted EBITDA attributable to noncontrolling interests.

Such forward-looking statements include statements that are not strictly historical facts, and include, among other things, statements regarding: our expectations of financial results, condition and outlook; anticipated effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and responses thereto, including the pandemic's impact on general economic and market conditions, as well as on our business, our customers, our results of operations and financial condition; anticipated actions to be taken by management to sustain SunCoke during the economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic and related business actions; and anticipated actions by governments to contain the spread of COVID-19 or mitigate the severity thereof.

Forward-looking statements often may be identified by the use of such words as "believe," "expect," "plan," "project," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "predict," "potential," "continue," "may," "will," "should," or the negative of these terms, or similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain and involve significant known and unknown risks and uncertainties (many of which are beyond the control of SunCoke) that could cause actual results to differ materially. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to domestic and international economic, political, business, operational, competitive, regulatory and/or market factors affecting SunCoke, as well as uncertainties related to: pending or future litigation, legislation or regulatory actions; liability for remedial actions or assessments under existing or future environmental regulations; gains and losses related to acquisition, disposition or impairment of assets; recapitalizations; access to, and costs of, capital; the effects of changes in accounting rules applicable to SunCoke; and changes in tax, environmental and other laws and regulations applicable to SunCoke's businesses.

In connection with the CMT acquisition, the Partnership entered into a contingent consideration arrangement that required the Partnership to make future payments to the seller based on future volume over a specified threshold, price and contract renewals. Adjustments to the fair value of the contingent consideration were primarily the result of modifications to the volume forecast. Customer events during the third quarter of 2019 reduced contingent consideration liability to zero.
