MFC Industrial Ltd. Reports Results For The Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013 - Revenues increased by 58 percent -

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MFC Industrial Ltd. ("MFC" or the "Company") (NYSE: MIL) announces its results for the nine- and three-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and provides an update on its recent corporate developments. The Company's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. (All references to dollar amounts are in United States dollars unless otherwise stated.)                    

HIGHLIGHTS                                                   

                                                                                                   FOR THE NINE  MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013

 

  • Revenues increased by over 58% to $591.8 million in the nine months ended  September 30, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.
  • EBITDA was $54.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.*
  • Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 decreased to $22.2 million, or $0.35 per share on a diluted basis, compared to $252.1 million, or $4.03 per share, for the same period of 2012. This was primarily due to the recognition of a bargain purchase of $225.2 million, or $3.60 per share, in the 2012 period, higher costs of sales and the flooding in Alberta, Canada.
  • Development arrangement with local operator at Niton, who will spend a minimum of C$50 million to drill a minimum of 12 net wells on our undeveloped lands in the next three years. MFC can elect to participate for 30% on a look-back basis in such wells, or we can elect to receive a 10% gross royalty on the production. In addition, we will process the natural gas though our processing plant.
  • Annual cash dividend for 2013 is $0.24 per common share. The dividend is 9% higher than that paid in 2012 and based on our per share price at the end of 2012, represents a yield of approximately 2.81% compared to an annual dividend yield of approximately 2.5% for the NYSE Composite Index in 2012. The 2013 cash dividend was paid in equal quarterly installments of $0.06 per common share.

*Note:  EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), has significant limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under IFRS. See page 3 of this news release for a reconciliation of our net income to EBITDA.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, our revenues increased by 58% compared to the same period in 2012. This was good, but we can certainly improve. Our EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization) for the current nine-month period was impacted by higher costs of sales. During the three months ended September 30, 2013, our commodities operations were also adversely affected by historically severe flooding in the Southern Alberta, Canada, region in and around the city of Calgary. Such flooding caused us to lose 73 days of natural gas production which resulted in approximately C$7.5 million in lost net revenue and approximately C$1.5 million in capital expenditures for repairs. Such operations returned to normal operating levels on September 26, 2013.

RESULTS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2013

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased 58% to $591.8 million, compared to $373.9 million in 2012. Revenues were up for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 because of several factors, including the integration of our new operations and increases in volumes for some of our commodities.

EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $54.6 million. EBITDA has significant limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results as reported under IFRS. See page 3 of this news release for a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA.

Net income for the nine ended September 30, 2013 decreased to $22.2 million, or $0.35 per share on a diluted basis, from $252.1 million, or $4.03 per share on a diluted basis (which included a bargain purchase gain of $225.2 million in the same period of 2012), for the same period last year. Net income for the current nine month period was down due to several factors, including higher costs of sales and the flooding in Alberta, Canada.  

The income statement for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 includes non-cash depletion and depreciation expenses of approximately $18.4 million, or $0.29 per share on a diluted basis. Depletion and depreciation are non-cash expenses and represent the amortization of the historical cost of our natural gas assets and other assets over their economic life. They are income statement expenses but are added back in the cash flow statement.

Revenues for our commodities and resources business were $566.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $345.8 million for the same period in 2012. Included are the gross revenues generated by our iron ore royalty interest which, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, were approximately $18.5 million, compared to $19.7 million in 2012. A total of 2.0 million tons of iron ore products were shipped during the nine months of 2013, compared to 2.3 million tons shipped during the same period in 2012.

Revenues from our merchant banking business were $8.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $14.3 million for the same period in 2012.

Other revenues, which encompass our corporate and other operations, were $16.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $13.8 million for the same period in 2012.

Costs of sales increased to $508.4 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 from $302.9 million for the same period in 2012. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $46.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 from $32.4 million for the same period in 2012.

EBITDA BREAKDOWN

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Management uses EBITDA as a benchmark measurement of its own operating results, and as a benchmark relative to its competitors. Management considers it to be a meaningful supplement to net income as a performance measure primarily because we incur depreciation, depletion and amortization expenses and EBITDA generally represents cash flow from operations.  The following table reconciles our EBITDA to net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 to net income.

CREDIT FACILITIES

We maintain various kinds of credit lines and facilities with banks and insurers. Most of these facilities are short-term, and are used for day-to-day business and structured financing activities in commodities. The amounts drawn under such facilities fluctuate with the type and level of transactions being undertaken.

As at September 30, 2013, we had credit facilities aggregating $492.9 million as follows: (i) unsecured revolving credit facilities aggregating $219.6 million from banks; (ii) revolving credit facilities aggregating $47.1 million from banks for structured solutions, a special trade financing where the margin is negotiable when the facility is used; (iii) a non-recourse factoring arrangement with a bank for up to $128.6 million for our commodities activities. We may factor our commodity receivable accounts upon invoicing at the inter-bank rate plus a margin; (iv) a foreign exchange credit facility of $59.6 million with a bank; and (v) secured revolving credit facilities aggregating $38.0 million. All of these facilities are renewable on a yearly basis.

UPDATE ON OUR NATURAL GAS & MIDSTREAM FACILITIES

In June 2013, Alberta, Canada, experienced heavy rainfall that triggered catastrophic flooding described by the provincial government as the worst in Alberta history. Rivers and their tributaries were particularly affected. Four people were confirmed dead as a direct result of the flooding and over 100,000 people were displaced throughout the region. Total damage estimates exceeded C$5 billion and in terms of insurable damages, is one of the costliest disasters in Canadian history.

One of our sour gas pipelines and a fuel gas line that feed our main gas processing facility were damaged and exposed by the flooding at the Sheep River crossing, and our Incident Management Team was activated.  Although there were no leaks, there was surface damage to the protective covering, necessitating the decision to block in all sour production and sweeten and de‐pressure the exposed line to eliminate any chance of a release. All sour gas wells feeding the pipeline were shut in. The sour gas production without this pipeline was not enough to keep our plant running and so the plant was shut down in mid-July 2013.

We have spent approximately C$1.5 million to repair the pipeline and gas line. This project required significant effort, including: surveys; line locates; excavation; work crews; sourcing pipe; arranging for welders; and applying for an updated pipeline license.

The high pressure drill method of replacing the pipe was required to ensure regulatory approval without disturbing the river and wildlife. On September 26, 2013, the high sour gas gathering system was brought back on line to pre‐flood volumes and the plant showed little effects of the prolonged shut down.

We have filed a claim with the insurer for approximately C$9 million which includes approximately C$7.5 million in lost revenues for the three month period, while the balance is for the actual repair costs associated with the replacement of the pipeline.

NITON ARRANGEMENT

In November 2013, we entered into an agreement with an experienced local oil and gas company (the "Operator") to develop certain oil and gas properties held by us in the Niton area of Alberta. The Operator is an oil and gas exploration and production company that has a significant presence in the area already, and currently produces 7,000 – 8,000 boe/d. 

Terms

  • The Operator will spend a minimum of C$50 million to drill at least three net wells per year and a total of 12 net wells (to a minimum of 800 horizontal meters each) during the initial three-year term.
  • The Operator will pay 100% of the drilling and completion costs of each well at its sole risk and expense.
  • After a well is drilled and there is continuous production from each well we can elect to participate for up to 30% on a look-back basis in the working interest of each well by paying 25% of its actual costs; or
  • Alternatively, we can elect to receive a 10% gross royalty on the production instead.
  • We will process the natural gas produced from the new wells through our processing plant for the life of the wells.

MARGINAL WELLS

A portion of our production comes from predominantly shallow low productivity, low pressure dry gas wells located in Southern Alberta. The challenge facing us and other operators in the region arises from trying to profit from these assets in a low gas price environment coupled with high operating costs.

The strategy to address these profitability issues is focused on implementing a "marginal well" operation to achieve the lowest possible cost of production, as well as potentially layering in a gas price hedging program to improve the revenue profile. The marginal wells in this area are homogenous, low risk, low decline, multi-zone production that includes gas and light oil opportunities. There is an extensive low pressure, large diameter gathering system owned and operated in the area which provides competitive advantages and flexibility to acquire and operate similar assets in an efficient manner.

In addition to the development of our existing lands, opportunities exist in the region for further consolidation and acquisition. Our marginal wells are expected to be economically stronger as part of an expanded entity with similar homogenous well types and we have an opportunity to acquire wells that other producers have struggled to operate under their higher-cost structures. By offering such producers the opportunity to dispose of these marginally productive wells, we are in a better position to acquire these and establish a profitable earnings profile. We intend to focus on additional cost reduction and optimization through a variety of means.

Wells and other processing facilities: The following table sets out our average sales prices, operating costs, royalty amounts, transportation costs and production for the nine months ended September 30, 2013:

Update on our Midstream Facilities: The plans for our gas processing facility include the development of midstream facilities that will help reduce our exposure to the volatility of natural gas prices and have the potential to create long-term stable processing income, as well as a value-added-component for our natural gas asset. Our strategy involves pursuing bolt-on or value-added projects to our existing facility. We have placed the orders for the generators for the co-generation plant (17 to 60 MW) that will provide electricity for our own use with any surplus power being sold to the electrical grid.

Well Cycle Policy: Our well cycle policy gives us the ability to maximize and protect the value of our assets by shutting in unprofitable production until natural gas pricing returns to adequate economic levels. When our production becomes economical we will resume operations.

Land bank: Our land bank as at September 30, 2013 was 289,420 net undeveloped acres (1,171.2 square kilometers) which we do not plan to sell or develop at this time.

UPDATE ON NEW MARKETS AND EXPANSION OF OUR COMMODITIES PLATFORM

As part of the integration of MFC Resources Inc. (formerly: ACC Resources) ("MFCR") into our group, we are now utilizing our Shanghai office for our China sourcing and freight forwarding from Asia. One of our main goals at MFCR is to reduce the cost of shipping which is the key component to enhancing their competitiveness.

We are evaluating the possible value added benefits of establishing a warehouse facility at our existing processing plant in Alberta, which would provide central distribution into the Canadian and U.S. oil and gas and farming industries.  The facility benefits from a rail terminal, which runs to the west coast of Canada linking into the ports of Seattle and Tacoma in the U.S. as well as Vancouver in Canada.

One of our new trading products in Mexico is proppants, which are purchased in China, and shipped, warehoused and sold in South America. We have also increased management personnel in these markets.

UPDATE ON THE ROYALTY INTEREST AT THE WABUSH MINE

In March of this year, the operator of the Wabush Iron Ore Mine ("Wabush"), Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. ("Cliffs"), has announced that it was changing its production of the mine to iron ore concentrates from iron ore pellets. In the third quarter of this year, Cliffs started shipping concentrate as well as pellets. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, Cliffs shipped a total of 2,034,271 tons of iron ore pellets and concentrate, compared to 2,338,303 tons in 2012. The price per ton (ore pellets and/or concentrate) for the nine months was C$9.34 versus C$9.49 in the same period in 2012.

The following table shows tonnage and pricing from our royalty interest for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012.

Cliffs have narrowed their 2013 full year Eastern Canadian iron ore sales and production volume expectations to 8.5 million to 9 million tons, up slightly from their previous range of 8 million to 9 million tons. This is comprised of 5.5 million to 6 million tons from other Eastern Canadian mines and 3 million tons from Wabush.

UPDATE ON OUR CAPTIVE SOURCES OF FERROUS METALS AT PEA RIDGE

MFC has appointed a new general manger to manage our interest in Pea Ridge mine and work with our partner, Alberici Group, Inc. in St Louis, Missouri.

The project is currently at a preliminary stage and any decision on proceeding, including development activities, is dependent on the completion of further analysis, including feasibility studies. Activities at the project are proceeding in an orderly fashion and it is currently anticipated that substantial additional expenditures will be incurred in order to determine the feasibility of the project.

ACCOUNTING NOTES

Revision of bargain purchase during the measurement period

Pursuant to IFRS 3, Business Combinations, comparative information for prior periods presented in financial statements is revised to account for adjustments made during the measurement period in connection with a business combination. 

In September 2012, we acquired a 100% equity interest in Compton Petroleum Corporation ("Compton") and recognized a bargain purchase of $244.6 million in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012. During the measurement period in September 2013, the fair values of the assets and liabilities of Compton were revisited and it was determined that the bargain purchase was $222.8 million on the acquisition date. As a result, interest on liabilities was recomputed and finance costs were reduced by $0.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. In addition, expiry loss of the unproved lands of $0.9 million was de-recognized for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The following table reconciles the retained earnings as at December 31, 2012 before and after the adjustments during the measurement period in connection with the acquisition of Compton:

Decommissioning obligations

Our provisions for decommissioning obligations represent management's best estimate of the present value of the future cash outflows required to settle the liability which reflects estimates of future costs, inflation, movements in foreign exchange rates and assumptions of risks associated with the future cash outflows, and the applicable risk-free interest rates for discounting the future cash outflows.

Decommissioning obligations were $106.9 million at September 30, 2013 and $136.6 million at December 31, 2012, or a change of $30.0 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. These changes are primarily recorded with a corresponding change to the carrying amounts of related properties. Adjustments to the carrying amounts of related properties have no profit or loss impact. 

ANNUAL CASH DIVIDEND

In January, our Board of Directors declared an annual cash dividend for 2013 of $0.24 per common share. The dividend is 9% higher than the dividend paid in 2012 and represents a yield of approximately 2.81% compared to an annual dividend yield of approximately 2.5% for the NYSE Composite Index in 2012. Details of the dividend are as follows:

  • The 2013 cash dividend was paid in equal quarterly installments of $0.06 per common share.
  • The first payment was paid on February 8, 2013.
  • The second payment was paid on April 22, 2013.
  • The third payment was paid on July 30, 2013.
  • Final payment was paid on October 28, 2013.

CORPORATE TAXATION

We are a company that strives to be fiscally responsible. The corporate income tax paid in cash was approximately $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

COMMENTS

Chairman Michael Smith commented: "Our revenues increased by 58% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the same period in 2012. This was good, but we can certainly improve on it. On the trading side we saw pricing of some commodities under seasonal pressure during the nine months. We still need to improve our margins, they are not at what we believe are acceptable levels.

We are continuing to make progress towards our goal of building a global commodities supply chain company, with the emphasis on the expansion of our operations and increasing our captive sources of supply. With any expansion or acquisition, our policy is to avoid diluting our shareholders by issuing new shares and to maintain our balance sheet and financial ratios. "
