The Mosaic Company Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results

03 Nov, 2015, 06:45 ET from The Mosaic Company

PLYMOUTH, Minn., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) today reported third quarter 2015 net earnings of $160 million, compared to $202 million in the third quarter of 2014. Earnings per diluted share were $0.45 in the quarter compared to $0.54 last year. Notable items negatively impacted current quarter earnings per share by $0.17, primarily due to non-cash foreign currency transaction losses. Adjusted earnings per share, excluding notable items, were $0.62 per share in the quarter, compared to $0.56 per share last year. Mosaic's net sales in the third quarter were $2.1 billion, down from $2.3 billion in sales last year, as a result of lower volumes and prices. Operating earnings during the quarter were $246 million, down from $277 million a year ago. The year-over-year change was driven by lower net sales, partially offset by no restructuring expenses during the current year period.

"Over the course of the last two years, we have transformed Mosaic to become more efficient and made great progress in optimizing our balance sheet. We continued to grow adjusted earnings per share, despite notably weaker crop nutrient prices and a challenging macroeconomic environment," said Joc O'Rourke, Mosaic's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Cash flow from operating activities in the third quarter of 2015 was $184 million, which is down from $375 million in the prior year period. Capital expenditures totaled $245 million in the quarter. Mosaic's total cash and cash equivalents were $1.3 billion, after setting aside $630 million, which is committed to be placed into trusts as financial assurance to support the closure and long-term care of the Company's phosphogypsum management systems. Long-term debt, including current maturities, was $3.8 billion as of September 30, 2015.

"As anticipated, this quarter's results reflect lower sequential production levels resulting in higher costs per tonne at our potash and phosphate facilities during a seasonally slow demand period," said Rich Mack, Mosaic's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Cost reduction efforts and focused execution helped maintain margin rates, which, in combination with our share repurchases and a lower effective tax rate, drove an improvement in adjusted earnings per share compared to a year ago."

Business Highlights – Third Quarter 2015

  • The Company's progress against strategic priorities is positively impacting financial results. During the third quarter Mosaic delivered:
    • MOP cash production costs of $105 per tonne, including $20 per tonne of brine management expenses, despite a low operating rate during the current quarter.
    • Record International Distribution quarterly sales volumes of 2.0 million tonnes.
    • The lowest quarterly Selling, General and Administrative expenses in the last six years despite an expanded business footprint.
  • Mosaic received the first shipment of prilled sulfur in preparation for the planned completion of its new sulfur melter in Florida.
  • The Company completed its previously announced $500 million accelerated share repurchase program and repurchased an additional $75 million during the quarter.
  • Mosaic continued to maintain a strong balance sheet, ending the quarter with $1.3 billion of cash and cash equivalents on the balance sheet.
  • The Company entered into settlement agreements with federal and state environmental agencies that, when effective, will resolve claims relating to how Mosaic has managed certain onsite waste materials at its fertilizer plants in Florida and Louisiana. After the settlement agreements are effective, Mosaic will deposit approximately $630 million into trusts to provide financial assurance for estimated future asset retirement obligations.

"Our Phosphates business continues to deliver year-to-date earnings growth for Mosaic," Joc O'Rourke said. "During the third quarter and year-to-date the business segment has accounted for more than half of Mosaic's operating earnings. Attractive margins, even in the wake of global challenges, reflect the constructive nature of the phosphates industry and Mosaic's leadership position."

Net sales in the Phosphates segment were $1.0 billion for the third quarter, down from $1.1 billion last year as a result of both lower sales volumes and lower realized prices. Gross margin was $199 million, or 19 percent of net sales, compared to $236 million, or 21 percent of net sales, for the same period a year ago. The year-over-year change in gross margin rate is primarily driven by lower margins on monoammonium phosphates (MAP) and higher conversion costs per tonne as a result of the Company's decision to curtail production. Operating earnings were $157 million, down from $188 million in the same quarter last year.

The third quarter average DAP selling price, FOB plant, was $451 per tonne, compared to $463 per tonne a year ago. Total sales volumes in the Phosphates segment were 2.1 million tonnes in the third quarter, down from 2.2 million tonnes last year.

Mosaic's North American finished phosphate production was 2.4 million tonnes, or 83 percent of operational capacity, compared to 85 percent a year ago.

"We have taken actions to optimize and right-size our potash operations," Joc O'Rourke said. "Our three large Canadian mines provide operating efficiencies and flexibility needed to vary production depending on market conditions. As a result, Mosaic's Potash business is well positioned to generate attractive through-cycle returns."

Net sales in the Potash segment totaled $492 million for the third quarter, down from $593 million last year, driven by lower sales volumes and lower average realized prices. Gross margin was $97 million, or 20 percent of net sales, compared to $154 million, or 26 percent of net sales a year ago. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin rate was primarily driven by lower average realized prices. Higher Canadian resource taxes and royalties were more than offset by lower costs as a result of the weaker Canadian dollar and expense management initiatives. Operating earnings were $66 million, down from $69 million in the same quarter last year.

The third quarter average MOP selling price, FOB plant, was $265 per tonne, down from $291 per tonne a year ago. The Potash segment total sales volumes for the third quarter were 1.6 million tonnes, compared to 1.8 million tonnes a year ago.

Potash production was 1.8 million tonnes, or 67 percent of operational capacity, roughly flat with last year.

"Brazilian currency volatility and reduced availability of farm credit resulted in delayed fertilizer demand in the region," Joc O'Rourke said. "We remain optimistic for Brazil's long-term agricultural future, and for our investments in this important region. In total, our International Distribution business sold more tonnes at higher-than-expected margins than last year, capturing time-place utility in spite of difficult macro-economic conditions."

Net sales in the International Distribution segment were $825 million for the third quarter, up from $684 million last year, primarily as a result of increased volumes from the ADM acquisition. Gross margin was $61 million, or seven percent of net sales, compared to $51 million, or seven percent of net sales for the same period a year ago. Operating earnings were $44 million, up from $30 million in the same quarter last year, reflecting a larger business footprint in Latin America.

The third quarter average selling price was $400 per tonne, compared to $481 per tonne a year ago. International Distribution segment total sales volumes were 2.0 million tonnes, up from 1.4 million tonnes last year.

Other

SG&A expenses were $77 million for the third quarter, down from $84 million a year ago, in part reflecting on-going progress against cost saving initiatives.

Provision for income taxes in the third quarter includes a $15 million benefit related to the reduction of the full year estimated effective tax rate to mid to high teens, excluding discrete items.

Financial Guidance

"Mosaic maintained and will continue to maintain discipline by matching production to expected demand, and our fourth quarter guidance clearly reflects this philosophy," said Joc O'Rourke. "Longer term, stable and profitable farm economics combined with the benefits of our strategic initiatives position Mosaic to generate attractive returns for our shareholders."

Total sales volumes for the Phosphates segment are expected to range from 1.9 to 2.2 million tonnes for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 2.4 million tonnes last year. Mosaic's realized DAP price, FOB plant, is estimated to range from $410 to $440 per tonne for the fourth quarter. The segment gross margin rate is estimated to be in the high teens and the operating rate is expected to be around 80 percent.

Total sales volumes for the Potash segment are expected to range from 1.8 to 2.1 million tonnes for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 2.3 million tonnes last year. Mosaic's realized MOP price, FOB plant, is estimated to range from $235 to $255 per tonne. Mosaic's gross margin rate in the segment is expected to be in the mid 20 percent range during the fourth quarter, reflecting the decision to operate at lower production rates due to softer demand conditions. The Company's operating rate is expected to be around 70 percent, down from 91 percent last year.

Total sales volumes for the International Distribution segment are expected to range from 1.3 to 1.6 million tonnes for the fourth quarter of 2015, compared to 1.1 million tonnes last year. The segment gross margin per tonne is estimated to be in the range of $23 to $28 per tonne.

For the 2015 full year guidance, Mosaic updates the following estimates:

  • Canadian resource taxes and royalties to be in the range of $265 to $295 million, compared to prior guidance of $310 to $350 million.
  • Capital expenditures and investments to be approximately $1.1 to $1.2 billion, compared to prior guidance of $1.1 to $1.3 billion.
  • Brine management costs to be in the range of $170 to $180 million, compared to prior guidance of $180 to $200 million.
  • SG&A expenses in the $350 to $370 million range, compared to prior guidance of $360 to $380 million.
  • The effective tax rate to be in the mid to high teens, excluding discrete items, compared to the prior estimate of high teens.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company has presented gross margin excluding Canadian resource taxes and royalties ("CRT") for Potash and adjusted diluted earnings per share, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a supplemental numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Neither gross margin excluding CRT nor adjusted diluted earnings per share is a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, investors should consider that Mosaic's calculations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Gross margin excluding CRT and adjusted diluted earnings per share should not be considered as substitutes for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Gross margin excluding CRT provides a measure that the Company believes enhances the reader's ability to compare the Company's gross margin with that of other companies which incur CRT expense and classify it in a manner different than the Company in their statement of earnings. Because securities analysts, investors, lenders and others use gross margin excluding CRT, the Company's management believes that Mosaic's presentation of gross margin excluding CRT for Potash affords them greater transparency in assessing Mosaic's financial performance against competitors.

Management believes that adjusted diluted earnings per share provides securities analysts, investors and others, in addition to management, with useful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of or are unrelated to our core operating results.  Management utilizes adjusted diluted earnings per share in analyzing and assessing the Company's overall performance, for financial and operating decision-making, and to forecast and plan for future periods.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share also assists our management in comparing our and our competitors' operating results.
