BREAKING:Ryerson Provides First Quarter 2017 Guidance and Announces Conference Call to be Held on May 4, 2017

Reading Time: 5 minutes

CHICAGO, April 6, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Ryerson Holding Corporation (NYSE: RYI), a leading distributor and value-added processor of industrial metals, today provided guidance for its first quarter ending March 31, 2017. The Company anticipates higher revenue for the first quarter of 2017 compared to the fourth quarter of 2016 and the first quarter of 2016 with higher average selling prices and higher tons sold for the current quarter as compared to both periods. The Company expects first quarter 2017 net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation in the range of $12 million to $15 million, which includes a range of $2 million of LIFO expense, net to $2 million of LIFO income, net.  Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO is expected to be in the range of $53 million to $55 million for the first quarter of 2017. Ryerson reported first quarter 2016 net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation of $14 million, which included LIFO income, net of $15 million. Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO was $37 million in the first quarter of 2016. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, excluding LIFO to net income attributable to Ryerson Holding Corporation is included below in this news release.

Ryerson’s end markets as measured in shipments per day showed sequential quarterly growth in nearly all sectors. Ryerson experienced quarterly year over year growth in oil & gas, construction equipment, and food processing and agricultural equipment, while HVAC and metal fabrication and machine shop sectors experienced quarterly year over year demand declines.

Ryerson anticipates higher average selling prices in the first quarter of 2017, which can be attributed to supply side stabilization and global metal demand improvement. The rise in prices for metallurgical coal, Chinese iron ore, and steel scrap, combined with increased Chinese domestic steel consumption and positive U.S. industrial sentiment indicators have supported higher steel prices. Aluminum prices have steadily increased from September 2016 through the first quarter of 2017 on better than expected supply and demand fundamentals. Recent increases in chrome prices, driven by supply tightening, have positively impacted stainless steel prices in the first quarter of 2017, although nickel fundamentals have been volatile due to policy uncertainty in Indonesia and the Philippines, leading to some retracement of LME nickel prices in March 2017.

Current demand conditions appear favorable when viewed against the year ago period. U.S. industrial production grew 0.4% in February compared to the prior year, and has expanded for 3 straight months after 15 straight months of contraction. Manufacturing sentiment indicators, as measured by PMI, continue to show expansion for the U.S. and Chicago indices, with Chicago PMI reaching a 2 year high in March 2017. Further, year-to-date U.S. service center shipments were up 3.8% year over year in February 2017 according to the Metals Service Center Institute. Ryerson remains cautiously optimistic on demand for metal products in the first half of 2017 given these early performance indicators, as we see how positive sentiment ultimately converts to real demand for industrial metals.
