Excluding an after-tax benefit of $12 million for special items, the company reported first quarter net earnings of $138 million, or 18 cents per diluted share. This compares with net earnings before special items of $80 million for the same period last year and $23 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 was $413 million compared with $365 million for the same period last year and $260 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

"I am proud of our first quarter performance, as each business delivered strong operating results despite rapidly changing market conditions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic," said Devin W. Stockfish, president and chief executive officer. "I want to thank our employees for their dedication to safety, operational excellence and serving our customers through this uncertain and challenging environment."

"In late March, we took steps to enhance financial flexibility and position Weyerhaeuser's businesses for changing market dynamics," Stockfish continued. "During the second quarter, customer market conditions have deteriorated across our businesses, consistent with the broader macroeconomic environment. As a result, we are taking further actions, including temporarily suspending the quarterly dividend, to preserve liquidity and financial flexibility. Weyerhaeuser remains committed to a balanced capital allocation philosophy that includes returning cash to shareholders through a sustainable dividend. The board will regularly evaluate opportunities to reinitiate an appropriate quarterly cash dividend as soon as practicable based on the company's cash flow, liquidity, leverage, customer demand, market conditions, and the broader macroeconomic environment."

"Weyerhaeuser's favorable cost structure, customer focus and financial resources position the company well to navigate this unprecedented economic disruption. We have a track record of successfully managing through cycles and have structured our business to quickly align production volumes with customer demand. We remain focused on driving long-term value for shareholders through our unmatched portfolio, industry-leading operating performance and disciplined, prudent capital allocation."

Q1 2020 Performance – In the West, average sales realizations and volumes for Japan export logs increased, and average domestic sales realizations improved modestly. Fee harvest volumes were slightly higher, and costs improved seasonally due to reduced forestry and road expenses and lower per unit logging and hauling costs. In the South, fee harvest volumes declined due to wet weather and lower stumpage sales. Average log sales realizations decreased slightly, partially offset by lower forestry costs.

On March 26, 2020, the company completed the previously announced sale of its Montana timberlands.

Q2 2020 Outlook – Weyerhaeuser expects second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA will be significantly lower than first quarter 2020. In the West, the company anticipates lower realizations, comparable domestic log sales volumes, and seasonally higher road and forestry costs, partially offset by higher sales volumes for China export logs. In the South, the company expects lower fee harvest volumes and slightly lower average log sales realizations.

In late March, market demand for Southern sawlogs began to decrease significantly due to the severe economic impact of COVID-19. To align harvest volumes with reduced sawlog demand, the company expects to reduce its full year 2020 Southern fee harvest by approximately 10 percent compared with the prior outlook and the full year 2019. The company does not anticipate material changes to Western fee harvest volumes.

Q1 2020 Performance – Real estate sales increased compared with the fourth quarter due to a significantly higher number of acres sold. Average price per acre decreased and average land basis increased compared with the fourth quarter due to the mix of properties sold.

Q2 2020 Outlook – Weyerhaeuser anticipates second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA will be approximately $20 million lower than second quarter 2019 due to fewer real estate acres sold.

The company now expects full year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA for the segment will be approximately $200 million, as social distancing and other measures have curtailed real estate broker activity and lengthened the time required to finance, close and record transactions.

Q1 2020 Performance – Average sales realizations for lumber and oriented strand board increased, and sales volumes were higher across all product lines. Per unit manufacturing costs improved due to strong operating performance and seasonally higher operating rates for engineered wood products.

Q2 2020 Outlook – Weyerhaeuser expects second quarter earnings and Adjusted EBITDA for Wood Products will be significantly lower than first quarter 2020 and second quarter 2019. The company anticipates significantly lower sales volumes across all product lines. To date, second quarter benchmark pricing for lumber and oriented strand board is lower than the first quarter average.

In late March, market demand for wood products began to decline due to the economic impact of COVID-19. In response to deteriorating market conditions, Weyerhaeuser announced on March 30, 2020 that it was adjusting production volumes across its wood products manufacturing facilities to align with customer demand. These adjustments include a combination of temporary mill curtailments and reduced shift postures. For the month of April, the company reduced operating capacity by 20 percent for lumber and 15 percent for oriented strand board. Weyerhaeuser anticipates extending these lumber and oriented strand board capacity reductions at similar levels in May and will continue to dynamically adjust as market conditions evolve. In engineered wood products, the company reduced operating capacity across its product lines by 15 to 25 percent for the month of April. In the month of May, Weyerhaeuser expects to reduce engineered wood products operating capacity by an additional 10 percent, resulting in a 25 to 35 percent overall reduction in operating capacity for the month.

Weyerhaeuser remains strongly committed to maintaining the safety of its employees and effectively serving its customers and will continue to adjust production volumes to align with customer demand.

ACTIONS TO ENHANCE FINANCIAL FLEXIBILITY

On March 30, 2020, Weyerhaeuser announced actions to enhance financial flexibility in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The company also announced that the board of directors would continue to review the company's capital allocation plans in light of rapidly evolving market conditions.

During the second quarter, macroeconomic fundamentals have continued to erode. In light of continued significant uncertainty regarding the duration and magnitude of an economic slowdown and its effect on the company's business conditions, the board of directors is temporarily suspending the quarterly cash dividend to preserve liquidity and financial flexibility.

Additionally, members of the company's senior management team and board of directors have elected to reduce their compensation for the remainder of 2020. This includes a base salary reduction of 30 percent for the company's CEO and base salary reductions of 10 percent for the remainder of the senior management team, as well as a 20 percent reduction in fees for the board of directors.

Weyerhaeuser is also providing updates on its previously announced actions:

  • Reducing capital expenditures: The company will reduce 2020 capital expenditures by approximately $90 million, or 25 percent, by deferring discretionary projects. Weyerhaeuser now expects full year capital expenditures of approximately $270 million.
  • Reducing non-essential operating expenses: The company will reduce 2020 operating expenses by approximately $55 million. In addition, approximately $25 million of federal payroll tax payments will be deferred until 2021.
  • Refinancing 2021 maturities: During the first quarter, Weyerhaeuser issued $750 million of 4.0% notes through a public bond offering, with net proceeds to be used to repay the company's outstanding 2021 maturities. The company subsequently submitted notice that it will redeem in May 2020 its $569 million of notes due March 2021.
  • Enhancing liquidity: The company increased cash on hand by $550 million through a precautionary draw on its revolving credit facility, which expires in January 2025.

Excluding cash received from the bond offering, the company had approximately $700 million of cash on hand at the end of the first quarter and $950 million of available revolver capacity. The company maintains investment grade credit ratings and remains well in compliance with its financial covenants. Weyerhaeuser's 11 million acres of high-quality timberlands also provide strong asset coverage.

The company expects to remain compliant with REIT taxable income distribution requirements.

Stockfish concluded, "Our actions to enhance Weyerhaeuser's balance sheet position us to continue successfully navigating these volatile and unpredictable market conditions while preserving the company's long-term value proposition."

Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is operating income adjusted for depreciation, depletion, amortization, basis of real estate sold and special items. Our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, and is not intended to represent an alternative to, our GAAP results.

(1)  

During first quarter 2019, we recorded a $12 million pretax ($9 million after-tax) charge related to the early extinguishment of debt. This charge is included in Interest expense, net of capitalized interest in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.

(2)  

Net earnings before special items is a non-GAAP measure that management believes provides helpful context in understanding the company's earnings performance. Net earnings before special items should not be considered in isolation from, and is not intended to represent an alternative to, our GAAP results.
