Capital Allocation Update

  • Paid $399 million in the quarter to repurchase 6.8 million shares of LP common stock
  • As of September 30, 2021, 90.2 million common stock shares outstanding
  • As of November 1, 2021, $157 million remaining under the $1 billion share repurchase authorization
  • Paid $17 million in cash dividends during the third quarter
  • Cash of $620 million as of September 30, 2021
  • Declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share
  • Announces additional authorization of $500 million to repurchase LP common stock

"As expected, the third quarter saw a significant correction in OSB prices and ongoing headwinds from raw material prices and availability," said LP Chair and Chief Executive Officer Brad Southern. "Despite these challenges, LP earned $522 million in EBITDA and $3.87 per share as Siding sales grew by 19%, EWP and South America delivered record quarters, and OSB continued to generate exceptional cash flow."

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

Net sales for the third quarter of 2021 increased by $424 million (or 53%) over the prior year to $1.2 billion. Siding Solutions revenue increased by $49 million (or 19%) and OSB prices increased by $225 million over the prior year period. EWP revenue increased by $98 million (or 95%) over the prior year period, primarily due to increased pricing to offset increased input costs. Additionally, South America revenue increased by $31 million (or 69%) over the prior year period due to price increases.

Net income attributed to LP for the third quarter of 2021 increased by $188 million over the prior year period to $365 million ($3.87 per diluted share) primarily due to the growth in Siding Solutions revenue and higher OSB prices, partially offset by increases in income taxes, raw material prices, freight costs, and maintenance projects. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 increased by $249 million over the prior year period to $522 million.

First Nine Months of 2021 Highlights

Net sales for the first nine months of 2021 increased by $1.6 billion (or 85%) over the prior year period to $3.6 billion. Siding Solutions revenue increased by $222 million (or 34%) and OSB prices increased by $1.1 billion over the prior year period. EWP revenue increased by $200 million (or 71%) over the prior year period, primarily due to increased pricing to offset increased input costs. Additionally, South America revenue increased by $84 million (or 70%) over the prior year period due to price increases.

Net income attributed to LP for the first nine months of 2021 increased by $940 million over the prior year period to $1.2 billion ($11.73 per diluted share) primarily due to the growth in Siding Solutions and the higher OSB prices. We recognized debt extinguishment charges of $11 million during the first nine months of 2021. During the first nine months of 2020, we recognized $21 million in fiber discontinuance costs, which included pre-tax impairment charges of $18 million as well as $3 million of severance costs. Adjusted EBITDA for the first nine months of 2021 increased by $1.2 billion over the prior year period to $1.7 billion, primarily due to growth in Siding Solutions revenue and higher OSB prices.

Segment Results

Improvements in net sales in the Siding segment compared to the corresponding prior year periods are the result of increased sales volume, increased price, and improved product mix. Increased Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to the corresponding period in prior year, is the net effect of higher revenue and increased costs for raw materials, freight, maintenance, and higher investments in sales and marketing. Costs associated with the capacity expansion project underway in Houlton, Maine increased in the third quarter, contributing to a $3 million decline in Adjusted EBITDA compared to the prior year quarter.

Oriented Strand Board (OSB)

The OSB segment manufactures and distributes OSB structural panel products including the value-added OSB portfolio known as LP Structural Solutions (LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier, LP WeatherLogic® Air & Water Barrier, LP Legacy® Premium Sub-Flooring, and LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated Sheathing) and LP® TopNotch® Sub-Flooring. OSB is manufactured using wood strands arranged in layers and bonded with resins.

For the OSB segment, increases in net sales compared to the corresponding prior year periods are largely the result of substantially higher OSB prices. Increased Adjusted EBITDA compared to the corresponding prior year periods reflect these price increase partially offset by higher costs from raw material inputs, logistics, and mill maintenance.

The EWP segment is comprised of LP® SolidStart® I-Joist, Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL), and Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) and other related products.

For the EWP segment, increased net sales compared to the corresponding prior year periods is predominantly due to price increases in response to significantly higher raw material input costs.

Net sales in the South America segment increased compared to the corresponding prior year periods predominantly due to higher OSB and siding prices. Increased Adjusted EBITDA compared to the corresponding prior year periods reflects the effect of these price increases, partially offset by higher imported raw material costs.

Q4 2021 Outlook and 2021 Capital Expenditure Guidance

Our guidance is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, including those set forth below under "Forward-Looking Statements."

  • We reiterate prior guidance of 10% year-over-year revenue growth for Siding Solutions in the second half of 2021, and full-year EBITDA margin of 25%, with lower volume and higher prices netting to at most 5% revenue growth for the fourth quarter of 2021, as compared to the corresponding quarter of the prior year.
  • OSB revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021 is expected to be sequentially lower than the third quarter of 2021 by about 30%, provided the average OSB price for the fourth quarter is equal to the current quarter-to-date average OSB price.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) for the fourth quarter of 2021 is expected to be greater than $200 million.
  • Given our current outlook, we expect capital expenditures for 2021 to be approximately $250 million, including $95 million for the previously announced Houlton mill conversion, $20 million for the previously announced Sagola conversion, $25 million for other strategic growth projects, and $110 million for sustaining maintenance.

(2)

This is a non-GAAP financial measure. With respect to Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021, certain items that affect net income on a GAAP basis, such as product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, and other non-operating items, that would be required to be included in the comparable forecasted GAAP measures without unreasonable effort. As such, the Company is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of GAAP net income, or a corresponding reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: impacts from public health issues (including global pandemics, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic) on the economy, demand for our products or our operations, including the actions and recommendations of governmental authorities to contain such public health issues; changes in governmental fiscal and monetary policies, including tariffs, and levels of employment; changes in general economic conditions, including impacts from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; changes in the cost and availability of capital; changes in the level of home construction and repair and remodel activity; changes in competitive conditions and prices for our products; changes in the relationship between supply of and demand for building products; changes in the financial or business conditions of third-party wholesale distributors and dealers; changes in the relationship between supply of and demand for raw materials, including wood fiber and resins, used in manufacturing our products; changes in the cost of and availability of energy, primarily natural gas, electricity, and diesel fuel; changes in the cost of and availability of transportation; impact of manufacturing our products internationally; difficulties in the launch or production ramp-up of newly introduced products; unplanned interruptions to our manufacturing operations, such as explosions, fires, inclement weather, natural disasters, accidents, equipment failures, labor shortages or disruptions, transportation interruptions, supply interruptions, public health issues (including pandemics and quarantines), riots, civil insurrection or social unrest, looting, protests, strikes and street demonstrations; changes in other significant operating expenses; changes in currency values and exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and other currencies, particularly the Canadian dollar, Brazilian real and Chilean peso; changes in, and compliance with, general and industry-specific laws and regulations, including environmental and health and safety laws and regulations, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-bribery laws, laws related to our international business operations, and changes in building codes and standards; changes in tax laws, and interpretations thereof; changes in circumstances giving rise to environmental liabilities or expenditures; warranty costs exceeding our warranty reserves; challenge or exploitation of our intellectual property or other proprietary information by others in the industry; changes in the funding requirements of our defined benefit pension plans; the resolution of existing and future product-related litigation and other legal proceedings; the effect of covenants and events of default contained in our debt instruments; the amount and timing of any repurchases of our common stock and the payment of dividends on our common stock, which will depend on market and business conditions and other considerations; and acts of public authorities, war, civil unrest, natural disasters, fire, floods, earthquakes, inclement weather and other matters beyond our control.

Use of Non-GAAP Information

In evaluating our business, we utilize non-GAAP financial measures that fall within the meaning of SEC Regulation G and Regulation S-K Item 10(e), which we believe provide users of the financial information with additional meaningful comparison to prior reported results. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized definitions and are not defined by U.S. GAAP. In this press release, we disclose income attributed to LP before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and exclude stock-based compensation expense, loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, and other non-operating items as Adjusted EBITDA (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We have included Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because we view it as an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe that it is frequently used by interested persons in the evaluation of companies that have different financing and capital structures and/or tax rates. We also disclose income attributed to LP, excluding loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, interest expense outside of normal operations, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, gain (loss) on acquisition, and adjusted for a normalized tax rate as Adjusted Income (Adjusted Income). We also disclose Adjusted Diluted EPS, calculated as Adjusted Income divided by diluted shares outstanding. We believe that Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted Income are useful measures for evaluating our ability to generate earnings and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily compare the earnings for past and future periods.

Neither Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, nor Adjusted Diluted EPS is a substitute for the U.S. GAAP measure of net income or for any other U.S. GAAP measures of operating performance. It should be noted that other companies may present similarly-titled measures differently and therefore, as presented by us, these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS have material limitations as performance measures because they exclude items that are actually incurred or experienced in connection with the operations of our business.

LOUISIANA-PACIFIC CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

The following tables set forth: (1) housing starts, (2) our North American sales volume, and (3) Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). We consider these items to be key performance indicators because LP's management uses these metrics to evaluate our business and trends, measure our performance, and make strategic decisions and believes that the key performance indicators presented provide additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of LP. These key performance indicators should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the U.S. GAAP financial measures presented herein. These measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled performance indicators used by other companies.

We monitor housing starts, which is a leading external indicator of residential construction in the United States that correlates with the demand for many of our products. We believe that this is a useful measure for evaluating our results and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily compare our sales volume for past and future periods to an external indicator of product demand. Other companies may present housing start data differently and therefore, as presented by us, our housing start data may not be comparable to similarly-titled indicators reported by other companies.

We monitor sales volumes for our products in our Siding, OSB and EWP segments, which we define as the number of units of our products sold within the applicable period. Evaluating sales volume by product type helps us identify and address changes in product demand, broad market factors that may affect our performance, and opportunities for future growth. It should be noted that other companies may present sales volumes differently and, therefore, as presented by us, sales volumes may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that sales volumes can be a useful measure for evaluating and understanding our business.

We measure OEE of each of our mills to track improvements in the utilization and productivity of our manufacturing assets. OEE is a composite metric that considers asset uptime (adjusted for capital project downtime and similar events), production rates, and finished product quality. It should be noted that other companies may present OEE differently and, therefore, as presented by us, OEE may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that when used in conjunction with other metrics, OEE can be a useful measure for evaluating our ability to generate profits, and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily monitor operational improvements. OEE for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, for each of our segments is listed below:
