“Following strong growth in our business over several sequential quarters, market conditions in our main products deteriorated through Q3,” said Pedro Larrea, CEO of Ferroglobe. “However, Ferroglobe is still showing solid results overall for the first nine months of 2018, with adjusted EBITDA up 69% year-over-year to $220.9 million, leverage remaining below 2.0x and a comfortable liquidity position.”

Mr. Larrea continued: “In response to the evolving markets for our key products, Ferroglobe has taken swift action to optimize our position across our global production base. In this regard, we are curtailing production in our silicon metal and manganese-based alloys businesses in order to take advantage of our diversified portfolio by optimizing production among our most cost effective plants and geographies. We also continue to look at further measures to control our costs, to draw down inventories, and to enhance our free cash flow profile. That said, we are operating in a volatile environment currently and our financial results may continue to be challenged in the near-term.”

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash used for operations during Q3 2018 was $7.9 million, with working capital increasing by $36.0 million. Net debt was $510.9 million as of September 30, 2018, up from $475.3 million as of June 30, 2018. “We did not meet our cash flow goals in the third quarter,” said Phillip Murnane, Ferroglobe’s CFO. “The deterioration in market conditions during the quarter left us with elevated inventories, a key factor in our decision to curtail our production.”

“Generating free cash flow through improvements in operations, reductions in working capital, non-core asset sales, and lowered interest expense remains our top priority” added Mr. Murnane. “Given our Q3 results, our free cash flow targets for the second half of 2018 have become a ‘stretch’  goal.  Regarding the potential refinancing of our $350 million of Senior Notes, we will continue to evaluate the credit markets and will act when the timing is right. In the mean time, our financial position remains strong, with total liquidity of approximately $250 million and no material debt maturities until 2022.”

Sales Prices & Volumes By Product

During Q3 2018, the average selling prices decreased by between 5% and 7% for all of our products quarter-over-quarter, reflecting overall market conditions. However, average selling prices for 2018 are well above 2017 for silicon metal and silicon-based alloys, and at levels that are compatible with historical trends. Manganese-based alloys prices in 2018 have significantly deteriorated, despite persistently high ore prices, a situation that should revert going forward based on historical market precedent.

Sales volumes in Q3 also decreased as compared to Q2, primarily as a consequence of seasonal slowdown in Europe and the impact of changing trade flows.  Activity to date in 2018 shows healthy growth, with volume increases over the same period in the prior year of 7% to 8% in silicon metal and silicon-based alloys. A year-to-year comparison of manganese-based alloys volumes is inapt in light of the Company’s acquisition of new manganese-based alloy assets earlier this year.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales was $334.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, an increase from $267.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, primarily driven by higher input costs for raw materials and energy and higher volumes. Cost of sales was $999.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, an increase from $758.8 million for the same period in 2017, primarily driven by higher sales and increases in raw materials and energy prices, particularly manganese ore and electrodes. Cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales increased to 63.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2018 from 59.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2017, whilst for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, cost of sales as a percentage of sales was 59.8% compared to 59.6% for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Staff Costs and Other Operating Expenses

Staff costs and other operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were $153.2 million and $470.6 million, respectively compared to $133.9 million and $399.7 million for the corresponding periods in 2017. The increases were primarily related to labour costs for the newly acquired manganese-based alloy plants.

Operating Profit

Operating profit was $14.3 million and $180.4 million, respectively for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2018, compared to $27.3 million and $41.3 million for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2017. Included in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was a $44.6 million bargain purchase gain related to the Company’s purchase of manganese-based alloy plants mentioned above.

Net Loss Attributable to the Parent

As a result of the various factors described above, we reported a net loss attributable to the Parent of $1.2 million, or ($0.01) per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and a net loss attributable to the Parent of $3.3 million, or ($0.02) for the three months ended September 30, 2017. We reported net income of $102.9 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to a net loss of $7.0 million, or ($0.04) per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA of $45.0 million, or 8.5% of sales, for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was lower than adjusted EBITDA of $56.1 million, or 12.4% of sales, for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA of $220.9 million, or 13.2% of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was higher than adjusted EBITDA of $130.9 million, or 10.3% of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Other recent developments

In light of financial performance in Q3 2018, near-term market outlook and the Company’s continued focus on cash generation and deleveraging its balance sheet, no interim dividend has been declared or is payable in respect of Q3 2018.

On August 21, 2018 the Company announced a $20 million programme for the purchase of its ordinary shares. 2,894,049 ordinary shares in the Company have been purchased under the programme, of which 1,152,958 shares have been cancelled and 1,741,091 are held in Treasury. The average price paid per share was $6.89. The programme closed on November 7, 2018.

Ferroglobe’s Executive Chairman, Javier López Madrid, has advised the Company that, on October 3, 2018, the Supreme Court of Spain (Tribunal Supremo) substantially confirmed the ruling of the Spanish High Court (Audiencia Nacional) in the case related to the misuse of corporate credit cards by 65 former directors and executives of Bankia S.A and/or Caja Madrid, including Mr López Madrid. The proceeding against Mr López Madrid relates to expenditure totalling €34,807.81 incurred between 2010 and 2012 and has been previously disclosed by the Company in its regulatory filings and its press release of March 16, 2017. Mr. López Madrid has advised the Company that, pursuant to the legal framework applicable to this case, he has applied for a suspension or a replacement of his sentence with the payment of a fine of €7,120.  The Company’s Board of Directors has closely monitored the developments in this case, agreed that Mr. López Madrid remain as a director of the Company and continues to support him in his role as Executive Chairman.

Non-IFRS Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted profit per ordinary share and adjusted profit are non-IFRS financial metrics that, we believe, are pertinent measures of Ferroglobe’s success.

Ferroglobe has included these financial metrics to provide supplemental measures of its performance. The Company believes these metrics are important because they eliminate items that have less bearing on the Company’s current and future operating performance and highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures.
