See "Non-IFRS measures" for a description of certain Non-IFRS measures used in this Press Release and "Non-IFRS Measures Reconciliation" below.


"Despite market headwinds during the second quarter, our business was able to once again succeed and generate Adjusted EBITDA of $34 million – an increase of 70% over the previous quarter," said Alan Kestenbaum, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "I am proud of our team's ability to adapt our business to changing market conditions and the uncertainty created in recent months resulting from the global pandemic. As a result of the hard work we have done to date, Stelco remains one of the lowest-cost integrated producers in North America and we will improve on that position as we complete our blast furnace upgrade project this quarter, making Stelco exceptionally well positioned to participate in the economic recovery during the latter part of this year."

"On July 17th, we commenced work on the blast furnace reline project at our Lake Erie Works facility. When this 75-day project is completed, we will benefit from significant upgrades that will improve our cost structure and increase our steelmaking capacity and quality. The completion of this project will represent the third strategic milestone that we have reached in 2020. To date we have successfully increased our penetration in downstream, value-added markets and, as we announced last quarter, we secured a long-term supply of competitively priced high quality iron ore as well as an option to purchase a 25% ownership interest in the Minntac Mine - the largest and lowest cost iron pellet mine in our region. Collectively, these strategic measures further position Stelco as a low-cost producer with the ability to deploy our tactical flexibility model to take advantage of market opportunities at every point in the cycle as demonstrated by our second quarter results," continued Kestenbaum.

"I am exceptionally proud of what the Stelco team has been able to accomplish during these unprecedented times. Once again, we expect to be sold out in the third quarter, benefiting from increased demand from almost all of our key end-markets, albeit at about half of our normal shipping level due to the blast furnace upgrade project. We expect to complete this project by the end of this quarter positioning us for substantial growth in the fourth quarter in terms of production. Each and every employee has remained focused on the task at hand and as a result we have succeeded in keeping our employees, their families and the community at large safe, while at the same time meeting the needs of our customers and delivering the highest quality steel products. I am excited to see the benefits of the strategic initiatives we've undertaken and am exceptionally pleased that our business is in a position to succeed not just today, but well into the future," said Kestenbaum.

"In recent months we have all seen and heard the movement for social justice across North America. I was proud to sign the Black North Initiative CEO Pledge (www.blacknorth.ca) not only acknowledging the existence of systemic racism in our society, but committing to taking action to improve diversity, inclusion and equity for all underrepresented groups, including Black Canadians and other racialized communities. One of our missions at Stelco is to run our business successfully so that we can deliver value for our shareholders and keep our workers working, even in the most difficult times, and to offer that equally to all who are qualified. Signing this Pledge is not the complete answer but it is a positive step towards promoting equality in our workplace and promoting meaningful change in society," concluded Kestenbaum.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Review:

Compared to Q2 2019

Q2 2020 revenue decreased $16 million, or 4%, from $427 million in Q2 2019, primarily due to a 7% decrease in average selling prices and lower non-steel sales of $8 million, partly offset by 6% higher steel shipping volumes. The average selling price of our steel products decreased from $754 per nt in Q2 2019 to $700 per nt in Q2 2020, due largely to decreases in market prices for flat steel products. Shipping volumes increased 31 thousand nt, from 545 thousand nt in Q2 2019 to 576 thousand nt in Q2 2020, mostly from higher hot rolled and coated steel product shipments, partly offset by lower other steel product sales including slabs.

The Company realized operating income of $16 million for the quarter, compared to $3 million in Q2 2019, an increase of $13 million due to higher gross profit of $13 million consisting of a decrease in revenue of $16 million, more than offset by lower cost of goods sold of $29 million.

Finance costs increased by $9 million, from $3 million in Q2 2019, due to the following: $9 million related to the remeasurement impact from our employee benefit commitment and $2 million increase in interest on loans and borrowings, partly offset by $2 million in lower accretion expense in connection with the employee benefit commitment obligation.

Other costs for the quarter include a $5 million write-down charge in connection with certain capital projects that are no longer being pursued by the Company, representing aborted construction in progress costs without future benefit to Stelco.

The Company realized net income of nil for the quarter, compared to $1 million in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of $1 million due to the following: $13 million increase in gross profit, more than offset by $9 million in higher finance costs and a $5 million increase in other costs. Adjusted net income increased by $4 million year-over-year, from $6 million in Q2 2019 to $10 million in Q2 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA in Q2 2020 totaled $34 million, an increase of $2 million from adjusted EBITDA of $32 million in Q2 2019, which primarily reflects the decrease in revenue from average price of steel sales and reduced non-steel sales, more than offset by a decrease in cost of goods sold, increase in other income and higher shipping volumes realized during the quarter.

Compared to Q1 2020

Q2 2020 revenue decreased $34 million, or 8%, from $445 million in Q1 2020, primarily due to a 7% decrease in steel shipping volumes and 1% decline in average steel selling prices. Shipping volumes decreased 45 thousand nt, from 621 thousand nt in Q1 2020 to 576 thousand nt in Q2 2020, mostly from lower hot rolled and cold rolled steel product shipments.

Operating income increased to $16 million in Q2 2020, from $7 million in Q1 2020. Adjusted EBITDA increased to $34 million from Q1 2020 adjusted EBITDA of $20 million, which primarily reflects the decrease in revenue from lower shipping volumes realized during the quarter and reduced average price of steel sales, more than offset by a decrease in cost of goods sold and increase in other income.

Non-IFRS Measures

This news release refers to certain non-IFRS measures that are not recognized under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of our results of operations from management's perspective. Accordingly, these measures should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of our financial information reported under IFRS. We use non-IFRS measures including "adjusted net income", "adjusted net income per share", ''adjusted EBITDA'', ''adjusted EBITDA per nt'', ''selling price per nt'', and ''shipping volume'' to provide supplemental measures of our operating performance and thus highlight trends in our core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. We also believe that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. Our management uses these non-IFRS financial measures to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period-to-period, to prepare annual operating budgets and forecasts, and drive performance through our management compensation program. For a reconciliation of these non-IFRS measures, refer to the Company's "Non-IFRS Measures Reconciliation" section below. For a definition of these non-IFRS measures, refer to the Company's MD&A for the period ended June 30, 2020 available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Forward-Looking Information

Forward-looking information may relate to our future outlook and anticipated events or results and may include information regarding our financial position, business strategy, growth strategy, acquisition opportunities, budgets, operations, financial results, taxes, dividend policy, plans and objectives of our Company. Particularly, information regarding our expectations of future results, performance, achievements, prospects or opportunities is forward-looking information. In some cases, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as ''plans'', ''targets'', ''expects'' or ''does not expect'', ''is expected'', ''an opportunity exists'', ''budget'', ''scheduled'', ''estimates'', ''outlook'', ''forecasts'', ''projection'', ''prospects'', ''strategy'', ''intends'', ''anticipates'', ''does not anticipate'', ''believes'', or variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results ''may'', ''could'', ''would'', ''might'', ''will'', ''will be taken'', ''occur'' or ''be achieved''. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, intentions, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances may be forward looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts but instead represent management's expectations, estimates and projections regarding future events or circumstances. The forward-looking statements contained herein are presented for the purpose of assisting the holders of our securities and financial analysts in understanding our financial position and results of operations as at and for the periods ended on the dates presented, as well as our financial performance objectives, vision and strategic goals, and may not be appropriate for other purposes.

Forward-looking information in this news release includes: our ability to successfully adapt to changing market conditions; our ability to continue to operate the business as one of the lowest-cost integrated steel producers in North America; expectations that we will improve our cost position following the completion of the blast furnace reline and upgrade; expectations that the Company will be well positioned to participate in any economic recovery during the second half of 2020; our advancement of strategic initiatives and our intention to continue making strategic investments in our business; expectations that upon completion of the blast furnace reline and upgrade the Company will benefit from upgrades intended to lower our cost structure and increase our steelmaking capacity and enhance our product quality; expectations that the Company's tactical flexibility business model will allow the Company to take advantage of market opportunities at every point in the market cycle; statements with respect to shipping projections for the second half of 2020; statements with respect to the timing of the completion of the blast furnace reline and upgrade; expectations that our capital projects and cost reduction initiatives will be successful; expectations that the Company's strategic initiatives will position the Company for long-term success;  expectations regarding the anticipated production and shipment timing that may be realized upon completion of the blast furnace reline and upgrade project; and expectations regarding the ongoing diversification of our product mix with respect to value-added products. Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information. The forward-looking information in this press release is based on our opinions, estimates and assumptions in light of our experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that we currently believe are appropriate and reasonable in the circumstances. Despite a careful process to prepare and review the forward-looking information, there can be no assurance that the underlying opinions, estimates and assumptions will prove to be correct. Certain assumptions in respect of our ability to complete new capital projects on schedule and within budget and their anticipated effect on revenue and costs; our ability to source raw materials and other inputs; our ability to supply to new customers and markets; our ability to effectively manage costs; our ability to attract and retain key personnel and skilled labour; our ability to obtain and maintain existing financing on acceptable terms; currency exchange and interest rates; the impact of competition; changes in laws, rule, and regulations, including international trade regulations; our ability to continue to access the U.S. market without any adverse trade restrictions; upgrades to existing facilities remaining on schedule and on budget and their anticipated effect on revenue and costs; and growth in steel markets and industry trends, as well as those set out in this press release, are material factors made in preparing the forward-looking information and management's expectations contained in this press release.

Key Assumptions Underlying Our Shipping Volume Estimates

The estimates with respect to our future shipping volumes included in this press release are based on a number of assumptions, including, but not limited to, the following material assumptions; the Company's ability to continue to access the U.S. market without any adverse trade restrictions; consistent demands for steel in North America; no significant additional legal or regulatory developments; no material failure with respect to any of our operations; no changes in economic conditions, or macro changes in the competitive environment affecting our business activities; upgrades to existing facilities and the construction of new facilities remaining on schedule and within budget and their anticipated effect on revenue and costs being fully realized; the Company's ability to attract new customers and further develop and maintain existing customers; currency exchange and interest rates; the impact of competition; and growth in steel markets and industry trends. We note that potential further changes to trade regulations in North America could materially alter underlying assumptions around anticipated shipping volumes and the steel market, generally. In addition, the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on the Company's future results of operations and financial condition are highly unpredictable and it is possible that the COVID-19 pandemic may have a material adverse effect on the Company's ability to (i) operate at or near its full capacity for the third quarter of 2020, (ii) find customers that are willing to purchase our products at fair market prices, and (iii) transport and deliver our products to customers in a timely and effective fashion.

Key Assumptions Underlying the Blast Furnace Project

Statements with respect to the expected project schedule and increased production volumes regarding the planned upgrade and reline of our blast furnace at Lake Erie Works referenced in this press release are based on a number of assumptions, including, but not limited to, the following material assumptions: third party contractors and suppliers delivering, constructing and performing in accordance with agreed upon budgets, schedules and applicable performance guarantees; our ability to obtain any applicable regulatory approvals and permits required in connection with the project; expectations that, upon completion, our facilities will produce in accordance with anticipated design capacity; expectations that the market for steel does not experience a material adverse change in the short to medium term; expectations that our customers will continue to purchase material volumes of production upon completion of the project; the blast furnace project proceeding on schedule and, upon completion, performing in such a manner so as to provide molten metal to meet our production needs; and expectations that we will fully realize production levels at our Lake Erie Works facility that are equal to or better than production levels existing at our Lake Erie Works facility prior to the commencement of the blast furnace upgrade and reline project. In addition, the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on the Company's ability to complete the proposed blast furnace project is highly unpredictable and is subject to many variables, including, but not limited to, the possibility that the applicable contractors' may be impeded and/or restricted from completing the work on schedule and within the budget.

Such forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information, including: North American and global steel overcapacity; imports and trade remedies; competition from other producers, imports or alternative materials; and the availability and cost of inputs placing downward pressure on steel prices or increasing our costs; as well as those described in the Company's annual information form   dated February 18, 2020 and the Company's MD&A for the period ended June 30, 2020 available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such information. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking information, which speaks only as of the date made. The forward-looking information contained in this press release represents our expectations as of the date of this news release and are subject to change after such date. Stelco Holdings disclaims any intention or obligation or undertaking to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
