Management Commentary

"We were very pleased with our operational performance during the third quarter of 2014," said David H. Hannah, Chairman and CEO of Reliance. "Although the typical seasonal trend is for third quarter volume to decline from the second quarter, our tons sold were up 0.4%, and well ahead of the MSCI industry trend of down 2.2%. Our increased volume reflects ongoing slow but steady improvement in customer demand. In addition, the overall pricing environment continued to improve during the third quarter with a 2.9% increase in our average selling price per ton sold over the prior quarter, driven by strength in most of our products. Overall, we remain very pleased with the execution of our managers in the field, as demonstrated by Reliance's consistently strong FIFO gross profit margin of 25.8% for both the third quarter and year-to-date periods, especially in light of the historically high levels of imports and increased competitive pressures. Additionally, our operating income on a FIFO basis for the nine month period ended September 30, 2014, is up 27% on a 14% increase in net sales compared to the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, illustrating our strong earnings momentum."

Mr. Hannah continued, "We continue to profitably grow through M&A activity to supplement our organic growth. We completed two acquisitions during the quarter which expand Reliance's aerospace presence and augment our traditional metal distribution capabilities with higher value-add services. We reported non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $1.33 for the third quarter, which were near the high end of our guidance range and were exclusive of non-recurring charges mainly related to the settlement of a previously disclosed Texas antitrust litigation matter. Due mainly to carbon steel prices holding at levels higher than we had previously anticipated through the third quarter, we adjusted our LIFO estimate for the year, resulting in higher than anticipated expense. Offsetting this was a decrease in our effective tax rate for the quarter related to the resolution of certain tax matters."

"Looking at our balance sheet, we continue to operate from a position of financial strength, and have ample liquidity to continue executing our growth strategies to create long-term shareholder value. Our healthy regular dividend and extension of our Share Repurchase Plan reflect our commitment to returning value to our shareholders," concluded Mr. Hannah.

End-market Commentary

Reliance was pleased with both demand growth and pricing during the third quarter despite typical seasonal headwinds experienced by our industry in the second half of the year. Because of our product and end market diversification, we were able to avoid this trend in the third quarter, mainly due to strength in the energy and aerospace markets, as well as continued modest improvement in the non-residential construction market.

  • Energy (oil and gas) demand for the products Reliance sells strengthened during the 2014 third quarter, and is expected to continue to improve into 2015.
  • Aerospace demand improved meaningfully during the quarter compared to 2013 levels, and is expected to further improve as we move into 2015. Despite pressure from excess mill capacity and higher industry-wide aluminum plate inventory levels, pricing improved slightly in the third quarter.     
  • Automotive, supported mainly by the Company's toll processing operations in the U.S. and Mexico, is expected to continue at its current, strong production rates in the fourth quarter of 2014 and into 2015. The increase in aluminum usage in the automotive industry continues to represent a growth area for Reliance.  
  • Heavy industry continues to perform reasonably well, despite some recent downward pressure on agricultural equipment. 
  • Non-residential construction continued to improve modestly in the third quarter of 2014 but remains at significantly reduced demand levels from its peak. Reliance is cautiously optimistic that this important end-market will show further signs of improvement in 2015.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

As of September 30, 2014, total debt outstanding was $2.32 billion, for a net debt-to-total capital ratio of 35.1%, up from 33.3% at June 30, 2014, mainly due to funding our August 1 acquisitions. At September 30, 2014, the Company had $667.0 million outstanding on its $1.5 billion revolving credit facility. The Company generated $162.8 million in cash flow from operating activities in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared to $513.0 million during the same nine-month period in 2013. The decline was mainly due to the improved business environment that requires higher levels of working capital. Reliance remains pleased with its overall financial position.

Corporate Developments

Effective August 1, 2014, Reliance acquired all of the capital stock of Aluminium Services UK Limited, the holding company parent of All Metal Services ("AMS"), the world's largest independent raw material service provider to the aerospace and defense industries. AMS offers a broad range of aerospace metals including aluminum, steel, titanium, nickel alloys and aluminum bronze, offering full or cut to size materials. Net sales for AMS were approximately GBP 174.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

Additionally, Reliance acquired all of the capital stock of Northern Illinois Steel Supply Co. ("NIS") effective August 1, 2014. NIS is a value-added distributor and fabricator of a variety of steel and non-ferrous metal products, primarily structural steel components and parts. Net sales for NIS were approximately $19.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

Reliance's Board of Directors extended the existing Share Repurchase Plan to December 31, 2017. The Plan authorizes the repurchase of approximately 7.9 million shares of Reliance common stock, or about 10% of current shares outstanding.

On October 21, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.35 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on December 18, 2014 to shareholders of record as of November 11, 2014. The Company has paid regular quarterly dividends for 55 consecutive years.

Business Outlook

Reliance expects the U.S. economy to maintain its slow but steady recovery. Due to normal fourth quarter seasonality associated with fewer shipping days resulting from the holiday season as well as extended holiday-related closures at many of its customers' facilities, Reliance expects lower tons sold in the fourth quarter of 2014 than in the third quarter. Pricing is also expected to decline somewhat in the fourth quarter given current weakness in many carbon steel products as well as decreasing nickel prices. As a result, management anticipates a solid operational performance with non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.00 to $1.10 for the quarter ending December 31, 2014, compared to $0.92 non-GAAP earnings per diluted share in the 2013 fourth quarter. We believe this reflects a healthy earnings level given the typical fourth quarter trend of our earnings per share down about 18% to 20% from third quarter levels.

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.

Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co.'s presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS over certain time periods is an attempt to provide meaningful comparisons to the Company's historical performance for our existing and future shareholders. Adjustments exclude charges for transaction costs related to its acquisitions of Aluminium Services UK Limited in August 2014 and Metals USA in April 2013, restructuring and other charges relating to the consolidation of two of its metals service centers, sale of certain non-core assets acquired as part of the Metals USA acquisition, legal costs and accruals related to the Houston, Texas anti-trust litigation matter, and other non-recurring settlements which make comparisons to the Company's operating results between periods difficult using GAAP measures.
