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

“The third quarter saw Stelco capitalize on market opportunities and maintain its position for the seventh consecutive quarter as the North American industry leader with 29% Adjusted EBITDA margin,” stated Alan Kestenbaum, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite market headwinds driven by cost inflation and a further deterioration in steel pricing trends, Stelco was able to increase our volume of shipments over the previous quarter and take full advantage of our low-cost structural advantage to again report strong Adjusted EBITDA.”

“Stelco’s continued success has allowed us to reward our valued shareholders and I am pleased to announce that we are returning an additional $165 million of capital to shareholders through a $3 per share special dividend this quarter,” said Kestenbaum. “This builds on our commitment to our shareholders that has been demonstrated through the course of 2022, through the repurchase and retirement of approximately 29% of the shares that were outstanding at the start of the year. We continue to lead the industry in return of capital to shareholders as a percentage of our market capitalization, having returned $1.8 billion since we went public in 2017.”

“During the third quarter we also began to realize the benefits of the final components of our strategic capital plan that has seen us invest more that $900 million in our facilities since 2017,” said Kestenbaum. “Going forward, the deployment of both our upgraded coke battery and our electricity cogeneration facility will provide us excellent opportunities to improve productivity and to reduce our costs and carbon footprint.”

“As expected, the third quarter presented very challenging market conditions that we expect to extend into the fourth quarter, including continued inflationary pressure on many of our key inputs,” said Paul Scherzer, Chief Financial Officer. “Accordingly, we are again reiterating our guidance for the fourth quarter that assumes that the lower prices and shorter lead-times being experienced currently fully impact results and prevail through the remainder of 2022. However, we will continue to focus relentlessly on costs in order to maintain our industry leadership and so that we can capitalize on any opportunity presented by the market.”

“Despite these challenges, and our extraordinary year-to-date return of capital via share repurchases and the special dividend announced today, I am pleased to also announce that we will increase our quarterly dividend by 40% to $0.42 per share,” continued Scherzer. “Our balance sheet remains strong, with a significant cash balance that even after recent buybacks remains in excess of $1 billion, and our business is well positioned to continue to make the necessary investments to ensure our long-term viability. We will continue to explore opportunities to strengthen our business and ensure that our shareholders benefit from our success.”

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Review:

Compared to Q3 2021

Q3 2022 revenue decreased $508 million, or 38%, from $1,354 million in Q3 2021, primarily due to a 36% decrease in Average Selling Price per net ton, a 3% decrease in Shipping Volumes, and lower non-steel sales of $21 million. The Average Selling Price of our steel products decreased from $1,808 per nt in Q3 2021 to $1,162 per nt in Q3 2022. Our Shipping Volumes decreased 24 thousand nt to 686 thousand nt from 710 thousand nt in Q3 2021.

The Company realized operating income of $217 million for the quarter, compared to $770 million in Q3 2021, a decrease of $553 million consisting of a decline in revenue of $508 million, an increase in cost of goods sold of $41 million, and higher selling, general and administrative expenses of $4 million.

Finance costs decreased by $9 million, from $26 million in Q3 2021 to $17 million in Q3 2022, due to the following: $12 million related to the period-over-period impact of foreign exchange translation on U.S. dollar denominated working capital during the period, $3 million decrease from the remeasurement impact from our employee benefit commitment obligation in Q3 2021, and $3 million lower accretion expense associated with our employee benefit commitment obligation, partly offset by $6 million higher accretion expense related to lease and other related obligations and a $2 million increase in interest on loans and borrowing.

The Company realized net income of $158 million for the quarter, compared to $614 million in the third quarter of 2021, a decrease of $456 million primarily due to the following: $553 million decrease in operating income, and $38 million change in deferred taxes, partly offset by $103 million decrease in current tax expense, $22 million change in finance income and other losses, $9 million in lower finance costs, and $1 million increase in share of income from joint ventures. Adjusted Net Income totaled $163 million in Q3 2022, a change of $466 million from $629 million in Q3 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA in Q3 2022 totaled $245 million, a decrease of $542 million from $787 million in Q3 2021, which mostly reflects a decrease in Average Selling Price per net ton and higher cost of goods sold.

Compared to Q2 2022

Q3 2022 revenue decreased $191 million, or 18%, from $1,037 million in Q2 2022, primarily due to 20% lower Average Selling Price per net ton, partly offset by a 1% increase in Shipping Volumes, from 677 thousand nt in Q2 2022 to 686 thousand nt in Q3 2022. Non-steel sales decreased $4 million, from $53 million in Q2 2022 to $49 million during Q3 2022.

The Company realized operating income of $217 million in Q3 2022 compared to $440 million in Q2 2022, and Adjusted EBITDA of $245 million compared to $464 million during Q2 2022, which mostly reflects lower Average Selling Price per net ton and higher cost of goods sold, partly offset by an increase in Shipping Volumes.

Non-IFRS Measures

This news release refers to certain non-IFRS measures that are not recognized under International Financial Reporting Standards ("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 common share", ''Adjusted EBITDA'', ''Adjusted EBITDA per nt'', ''Average 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 September 30, 2022 available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Forward-Looking Information

This release contains "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable securities laws. 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", "goal", "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: expectations that we will be able to successfully adapt to changing market conditions and succeed across all points of the market cycle; expectations that we will continue to operate the business as one of the lowest-cost integrated steel producers in North America; expectations that our upgraded coke battery and our electricity cogeneration facility will provide us with opportunities to improve productivity and reduce our costs and carbon footprint; expectations that we will continue to experience a challenging market environment during the fourth quarter of 2022; expectations that the strength of our balance sheet will enable us to weather the current market environment in addition to any further market deterioration; expectations regarding achieving a lower cost operating structure; expectations that margins will be under pressure in the second half of 2022 due to lower pricing and inflationary pressure on cost inputs and reduced demand; and expectations that our business is well positioned to make the necessary strategic investments to improve efficiency, lower costs, secure our long-term viability and ensure that shareholders benefit from our success.

Key Assumptions Underlying our Q4 Adjusted EBITDA Estimates:

Guidance regarding Q4 2022 Adjusted EBITDA referenced in this press release are based on a number of assumptions, including, but not limited to, the following material assumptions:

  • the Company’s anticipated margins per net ton will be consistent with prior periods subject to impacts from price and volume, as well as operating costs, and inflationary pressures on fixed and variable costs over the period;
  • steel prices will soften period over period consistent with current trends and sales activities in the market;
  • Shipping Volume will generally be consistent with past periods;
  • second half 2022 product mix will be comparable to first half 2022, although there are likely to be some differences between periods;
  • the Company's ability to maintain existing customers and historical order volumes from those customers;
  • higher interest rates will not have a materially adverse impact on North American steel demand;
  • no significant legal or regulatory developments, changes in economic conditions, or macro changes in the competitive environment affecting our business activities;
  • capital expenditures on existing facilities and equipment remaining on schedule and on budget and their anticipated effect on revenue and costs;
  • the Company's ability to continue to access the U.S. market without any adverse trade restrictions;
  • expectations regarding industry trends, market growth rates and the Company's future growth rates, and plans and strategies to manage cost pressures; and
  • the Company's ability to maintain the volume of shipments to its customers and fully realize upon the current market price of hot-rolled coil and other steel products.

We believe that our performance and our ability to achieve these forecasts depends on a number of material factors including: (i) sustained demand from our customers; (ii) continued steel production capacity curtailments in China; (iii) continued fair trade practices, particularly with respect to the North American market; (iv) the COVID-19 pandemic not having an adverse impact on North American demand for our products; and (v) stable supply and demand fundamentals in the rest of the world, other than factors related to the conflict in Eastern Europe. These factors are also subject to a number of inherent risks, challenges and assumptions.

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 obtain all applicable regulatory approvals required in connection with new facilities; our ability to source necessary volumes of raw materials and other inputs at competitive prices; our iron ore pellet supply agreement providing us with competitively priced iron ore pellets during the term of the agreement; our facilities operating at design capacity; 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 ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, operations, employees, customers, suppliers and the economy overall; 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.

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.
