MECHEL REPORTS THE 1Q 2020 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Consolidated revenue 68.3 bln rubles (-9% compared to 1Q 2019)

EBITDA1 12.7 bln rubles (-17% compared to 1Q 2019)

Loss attributable to equity shareholders of Mechel PAO – 36.9 bln rubles

 

Moscow, Russia – May 26, 2020 – Mechel PAO (MOEX: MTLR, NYSE: MTL), a leading Russian mining and steel group, announces financial results for the 1Q 2020.

 

Mechel PAO’s Chief Executive Officer Oleg Korzhov commented:

“Consolidated EBITDA in 1Q2020 went up by 36% quarter-on-quarter. This was due to EBITDA’s quarter-on-quarter increase in each of the Group’s business segments. The steel division contributed the most, as its EBITDA doubled quarter-on-quarter. This dynamic became possible due to a significant growth of output and sales of rails and other types of high value-added products as well as decreased production costs as raw material prices went down.

“The mining division’s results came under the influence of a persistent negative dynamics of metallurgical coal prices, but by maintaining stable coal sales and optimizing costs the division managed to demonstrate a 9% EBITDA growth quarter-on-quarter.

“After this reporting period was over, the Group underwent significant changes. In April Mechel sold its 51-percent stake in companies comprising Elga Coal Complex to A-Property OOO. At the same time, Mechel signed debt-restructuring agreements with Gazprombank and VTB Bank.

“This was a very serious step for the Group. The overall financial debt level will decrease by approximately 146 billion rubles. This will enable Mechel to improve its Net debt to EBITDA ratio, cut down debt service costs, and to release resources for further debt decrease and development of the company’s production facilities.”

Mechel PAO’s Chief Financial Officer Nelli Galeeva commented:

“Consolidated EBITDA for 1Q2020 totaled 12.7 billion rubles, which is 36% more than in 4Q2019. Loss attributable to equity shareholders of Mechel PAO amounted to 36.9 billion rubles, which is 27.1 billion rubles more than in 4Q2019 due to growth of foreign exchange losses on foreign currency liabilities as a result of significant ruble devaluation in this reporting period.

“The operating cash flow in 1Q2020 went up and reached 16 billion rubles as compared to 15.1 billion in 4Q2019, which enabled us to satisfy the Group’s operational and investment needs while fulfilling our financial obligations.

“In 1Q2020, the Group’s finance costs went down by 0.5 billion rubles and reached 8.9 billion rubles as compared to 9.4 billion in 4Q2019 and by 1.2 billion from 10.1 billion in 1Q2019, due to a lower Central Bank of the Russian Federation key interest rate as well as the Group’s efforts on restructuring its debt leverage and decreasing borrowing costs.

“Interest paid in 1Q2020, including capitalized interest and lease interest, went down accordingly to reach 6.6 billion rubles, which is 0.7 billion less than in 4Q2019 (7.3 billion rubles) and 1.1 billion less than in 1Q2019 (7.7 billion rubles). As of mid-May 2020, the average debt portfolio cost is 6.4% per annum, average paid interest rate amounts to 6.3% per annum.

EBITDA - Adjusted EBITDA. Please find the calculation of the Adjusted EBITDA and other non-IFRS measures used here and hereafter in Attachment A.

 

 


“The Group’s net debt excluding fines and penalties on overdue amounts and options went up by 27 billion rubles as compared to December 31, 2019, and amounted to 427 billion rubles. This was due to the ruble weakening against US dollar and euro to the effect of 32.9 billion rubles, which was partly offset by net repayment of 5.7 billion rubles.

“Mostly due to the reason set out above the Net Debt to EBITDA ratio amounted to 8.4 at the end of 1Q2020 as compared to 7.5 at the end of 2019.

“In April 2020, the Group sold its 51% share in the equity capital of Elgaugol OOO, Elga-Doroga OOO and Mecheltrans-Vostok OOO to A-Property OOO. The consideration amounted to 89 billion rubles, with the buyer fully repaying Elgaugol OOO’s obligations to the state development corporation VEB.RF totaling 107 million dollars (approximately 8 billion rubles).

“Renouncing the Gazprombank option to buy out a 49% share in Elgaugol OOO, Elga-Doroga OOO and Mecheltrans Vostok OOO, led to release of non-current financial liability for 49 billion rubles.

“Simultaneously with this transaction, the Group signed debt restructuring agreements with VTB Bank and Gazprombank, according to which consideration from the transaction was used for early repayment of the debt principal to VTB Bank and Gazprombank in proportion to their share in the Group’s debt portfolio. According to the restructuring’s key conditions, debt maturity of most of the loans by VTB Bank and Gazprombank has been extended by seven years until March 2027 with the option of further extension by three years more. Other significant conditions, including interest rates and collateral, remained unchanged.

“On May 7, 2020 the Group’s key lenders — VTB Bank and Gazprombank — confirmed fulfillment of all condition precedents and loan restructuring’s coming into force.

“The company’s debt leverage thus decreased by a total of approximately 146 billion rubles, and the debt portfolio’s structure changed and currently consists of 56% in rubles and the rest in foreign currency (US dollars and euro). The state-controlled banks’ share now amounts to 86%.”

 

Mining Segment

 

Coal sales to third parties in 1Q2020 remained roughly at the previous quarter’s level, but continued weakening of the metallurgical coals market led to a 9% decrease in revenue from contracts with external customers. Moreover, with the 1Q2020 put into operation of Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant’s blast furnace #4 after an overhaul the need for coke went up, and some coke volumes were redirected from sales to third parties to intra-Group consumption, which also brought down revenue from external customers.

In 1Q2020 the pace of explosive and stripping works at the Group’s Yakutia mining assets somewhat slowed down. This, together with increased mining and coal sales at Yakutugol, had a positive effect on cost of sales. In addition, as the share of exports in sales to third parties decreased, selling and distribution expenses went down also. As a result, in 1Q2020 EBITDA went up by 9% quarter-on-quarter.

Revenue from contracts with external customers in 1Q2020 went down by 26% year-on-year. The division’s EBITDA in 1Q2020 went down by 41% year-on-year. This was primarily due to the decline in prices for all kinds of coal products in the second half of last year, particularly for coking coal concentrate and other types of metallurgical coal. This factor was partly offset by increased sales of metallurgical coals and costs decrease as mining volumes went up.

Mechel Mining Management OOO’s Chief Executive Officer Igor Khafizov noted:

“In 1Q2020 the division maintained the level of mining volumes attained in the second half of last year — over 5 million tonnes quarterly, though this quarter result decreased slightly as compared to 4Q2019 which set the record for the past three years. Coal mining stabilized at a high level as a result of measures taken in the previous periods to restore mining volumes by upgrading the mining fleet and equipment as well as bringing in contractors.

“The division demonstrated improvement of its financial results quarter-on-quarter as production costs went down, despite the coal markets’ high volatility. EBITDA margin went up from 21% in 4Q2019 to 24% in 1Q2020.

“In the future, we plan to continue increasing coal and iron ore mining, as well as salable product output by acquiring new equipment and upgrading existing one. For example, we will pay


additional attention to efficiency and reliability of coal washing equipment in order to meet customer quality requirements.”

Steel Segment

 

Revenue from contracts with external customers in 1Q2020 went up by 4% quarter-on-quarter due to increased sales of rails, flat products, including stainless steel flat products, and wire. At the same time, EBITDA nearly doubled in 1Q2020 quarter-on-quarter as steel product sales went up, while production costs went down.

Revenue from contracts with external customers in 1Q2020 showed a minor increase year-on-year. As prices for most of the division’s products diminished, the positive effect came from a significant boost to output and sales of rails, where prices demonstrated positive dynamics. EBITDA went up by 39% in this reporting period year-on-year as production costs decreased with lower procurement prices for raw materials as well as lower selling and distribution expenses as export volumes went down.

Mechel-Steel Management Company OOO’s Chief Executive Officer Andrey Ponomarev noted:

“The division’s 1Q2020 financial results clearly demonstrated the efficiency of our efforts to increase output and sales of the most profitable product types. In this reporting period, with the needs of Russian Railways in mind, we increased rail sales by a third quarter-on-quarter, including doubling our rails export sales. Forgings sales went up by a half. We also increased sales of flat products by 11%, with sales of stainless flat products up by 38%. As a result, revenue from sales to third parties went up by 4% quarter-on-quarter. The decrease in prices for iron ore concentrate (including pellets), coke, ferroalloys and electrodes had a positive impact on production costs, which led to a 101% increase in EBITDA quarter-on-quarter and a 39-percent increase year-on-year. EBITDA margin reached 10%, the highest level since beginning of 2019.

“In order to maintain and increase output of high value-added product types in 2020, we will continue the extensive repair and upgrade program we began implementing last year. Our facilities also continue expanding their product range. For example, in January-April 2020 Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant mastered production of 27 new product types, Izhstal mastered 22, and Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant — 14 types.”

Mechel-Energo OOO’s Chief Executive Officer Denis Graf noted:

“The division’s 1Q2020 revenue was relatively stable both quarter-on-quarter and year-on-year. EBITDA in this reporting period nearly quadrupled year-on-year, largely due to lower power transmission costs as the volumes of electricity and capacity went down, while capacity prices on the wholesale market went up. The 37% increase in EBITDA quarter-on-quarter is caused both by the seasonal climatic factor and the increase in energy generation for intra-Group consumption.”

Attachment A

Non-IFRS financial measures. This press release includes financial information prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, or IFRS, as well as other financial measures referred to as non-IFRS. The non-IFRS financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for the information prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA) represents profit (loss) attributable to equity shareholders of Mechel PAO before Depreciation and amortisation, Foreign exchange (gain) loss, net, Finance costs including fines and penalties on overdue loans and borrowings and lease payments, Finance income, Net result on the disposal of non-current assets, Impairment of goodwill and other non-current assets, net, Write-off of trade and other receivables, Allowance for expected credit losses on financial assets, Provision (reversal of provision) for doubtful accounts, Write-off of inventories to net realisable value, Net result on the disposal of subsidiaries, Profit (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests, Income tax expense (benefit), Effect of pension obligations, Other fines and penalties, Gain on restructuring and forgiveness of trade and other payables and write-off of trade and other payables with expired legal term and Other one-off items. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of our Revenue. Our adjusted EBITDA may not be similar to EBITDA measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement under IFRS and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for the information contained in our interim condensed consolidated statement of profit (loss) and other comprehensive income. We believe that our adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors because it is an indicator of the strength and performance of our ongoing business operations, including our ability to fund discretionary spending such as capital expenditures, acquisitions and other investments and our ability to incur and service debt. While depreciation, amortisation and impairment of goodwill and other non-current assets are considered operating expenses under IFRS, these expenses primarily represent the non-cash current period allocation of costs associated with non-current assets acquired or constructed in prior periods. Our adjusted EBITDA calculation is commonly used as one of the bases for investors, analysts and credit rating agencies to evaluate and compare the periodic and future operating performance and value of companies within the metals and mining industry.
