ATLANTA, Oct. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Driven by higher harvest volumes, increased pulpwood pricing in the U.S. South and fees from its Investment Management business, CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CTT) today reported strong year-over-year results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2019 – including solid increases in total revenues, timber sales, and asset management fee revenue; a substantially lower net loss; and significantly higher Adjusted EBITDA.

CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc. (PRNewsFoto/CatchMark Timber Trust, Inc.)

CatchMark also declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.135 per share for its common stockholders of record on November 26, 2019, payable on December 13, 2019.

Results Overview

In the third quarter 2019, CatchMark:

  • Increased total revenues by 7% to $26.4 million, compared to $24.6 million in the third quarter 2018.
  • Reduced net loss by 74% to $20.6 million, compared to $78.9 million in the third quarter 2018, primarily due to a $51.0 million decrease in losses allocated from the Triple T joint venture.
  • Increased Adjusted EBITDA by 44% to $16.5 million, compared to $11.5 million in the third quarter 2018. Harvest EBITDA increased by 23% to $9.4 million from $7.6 million and Investment Management EBITDA increased by 166% to $7.3 million from $2.7 million, primarily from Adjusted EBITDA generated by the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture.
  • Increased harvest volumes to more than 634,000 tons, a 28% increase compared to second quarter 2019 and a 19% increase compared to third quarter 2018.
  • Increased timber sales by 18% to $19.7 million, compared to $16.7 million in the third quarter 2018.
  • Completed a $19.9 million large disposition of 10,800 acres, recognizing a gain of $7.2 million and paying down debt by $14.8 million with a portion of the proceeds. Overall, the company paid down a total of $20.1 million in debt during the quarter from recent large dispositions.
  • Sold approximately 1,100 acres of timberlands for $2.3 million, compared to 1,900 acres for $3.8 million during third quarter 2018.
  • Increased asset management fee revenue by 27% to $3.4 million, including earning an incentive-based promote from the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture for exceeding investment hurdles.
  • Received $3.8 million in cash distributions from Dawsonville Bluffs, on completing the disposition of substantially all of its remaining 4,400 acres of timberland for $8.7 million. Since inception in April 2017 through September 30, 2019, CatchMark had received $13.3 million in cash distributions from its $10.5 million investment in the joint venture.
  • Paid a dividend of $0.135 per share to stockholders on September 13, 2019.

Year-Over-Year Increases

Jerry Barag, CatchMark's Chief Executive Officer, said: "In meeting our business plan, third quarter registered across-the-board, year-over-year increases on revenues, harvest volumes, timber sales, and pulpwood pricing. In addition, our timber sales pricing continued to beat market averages. We also met targets for the Investment Management business related to Dawsonville Bluffs, which has now sold all of its timberland, as well as the ongoing Triple T Joint Venture.

"CatchMark's superior mill market locations, supply agreements and delivered wood sales strategy helped continue to drive these excellent operating results and, in particular, the pricing premiums achieved over Timber-Mart South averages. During the quarter, we also stepped up activity in the Pacific Northwest as planned, harvesting 24,000 tons, comprising 86% sawtimber, from last year's Bandon acquisition. We anticipate harvesting increased volumes from our Pacific Northwest timberlands going forward as compared to full-year 2019 and continuing to improve our overall sawtimber harvest mix.

"Our Investment Management business has continued to boost revenue growth, producing predictable and stable cash flow from timberland properties equal in quality to those in our wholly-owned portfolio. This certainly is the case with the Triple T joint venture, which has provided significant asset management fees.  In addition, the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture has provided strong investment returns and asset management fees over its term as well as realizing additional incentive-based promotes for CatchMark."

Barag added: "Looking ahead, timberland sales remain on course to meet guidance of $16 million to $18 million in sales for full-year 2019. We also remain on track to meet our full-year harvest target of between 2.2 million and 2.4 million tons."

Capital Position

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, CatchMark paid down $20.1 million of its outstanding balance on the multi-draw term facility, using proceeds from recent large dispositions. These transactions included a $19.9 million sale of 10,800 wholly-owned acres in Georgia and Alabama during the quarter, recognizing a $7.2 million gain. As of September 30, 2019, a total of $185.1 million remained available under CatchMark's credit facilities – $150.1 million under the multi-draw term facility and $35.0 million under the revolving credit facility. Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA decreased to 8.6x as of September 30, 2019 from 10.1x as of June 30, 2019, reflecting the full-year impact of asset management fee revenues earned from Triple T and the pay down of debt.

CatchMark President and Chief Financial Officer Brian Davis said: "We continue to explore capital recycling opportunities and remain on course to reach net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio below 8.0x by year-end. After quarter-end, we continued to execute on our active interest rate management strategy by entering into hedging transactions to blend and extend existing swaps to lower our already favorable borrowing costs and extend the average life of our fixed-rate debt. After these transactions, we have fixed interest rates on $275.0 million of our outstanding debt for an average term of nine years at a weighted-average rate of 2.17%, before the applicable spread and expected patronage refunds, as compared to an average term of four years at 2.44% under our previous swaps."

Share Repurchases

Under CatchMark's $30 million share repurchase program, the company repurchased approximately 57,600 shares of its common stock for approximately $594,000 in open market transactions during the third quarter.  Year-to-date, the company has repurchased approximately 329,000 shares for $3.0 million under its share repurchase program. As of September 30, 2019, CatchMark may repurchase up to an additional $15.7 million under the program.

Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2019

CatchMark's revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2019 were $26.4 million, $1.8 million higher than the three months ended September 30, 2018 primarily as a result of a $3.0 million increase in timber sales revenue and a $0.7 million increase in asset management fee revenue, offset by a $1.6 million decrease in timberland sales revenue from fewer acres sold. Timber sales revenue increased by $3.0 million, or 18%, primarily due to a 19% increase in harvest volume, a higher sawtimber mix and a 3% increase in pulpwood pricing in the U.S. South, offset by a 15% decrease in delivered sales as a percentage of total volume. Harvest volume in the U.S. South was higher than third quarter 2018 from harvest deferrals in the prior year quarter in anticipation of a better pricing environment, which was realized in subsequent periods. Delivered sales mix decreased from prior year quarter primarily as a result of capitalizing on advantageous stumpage and lump sum transactions. A 24,000-ton harvest from the Bandon property in the Pacific Northwest contributed $1.8 million to timber sales revenue.

Net loss decreased to $20.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 from $78.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018 primarily due to a $51.0 million decrease in losses allocated from the Triple T joint venture under the HLBV method and a $7.2 million gain recognized on large dispositions.

Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $77.6 million, $2.7 million higher than the nine months ended September 30, 2018 as a result of a $6.4 million increase in asset management fee revenue primarily earned from the Triple T joint venture, offset by a $2.3 million decrease in timberland sales revenue from fewer acres sold, a $0.7 million decrease in other revenue and a $0.6 million decrease in timber sales. Timber sales revenue decreased due to a 3% decrease in harvest volume mitigated by 3% increases in both pulpwood and sawtimber stumpage prices in the U.S. South. Harvest volume in the U.S. South decreased by 6% as a result of previous wet weather and mill outages, as anticipated in the 2019 harvest plan. In the Pacific Northwest, we harvested 43,000 tons from the Bandon property, which contributed $3.5 million to gross timber sales revenue.

Net loss decreased to $81.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 from $83.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 primarily due to recognizing an $8.0 million gain from large dispositions, a $2.7 million increase in revenues and a $1.1 million decrease in expenses, offset by a $2.7 million increase in interest expense and a $6.8 million increase in loss from unconsolidated joint ventures.

Adjusted EBITDA

The discussion below is intended to enhance the reader's understanding of our operating performance and ability to satisfy lender requirements. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of operating performance. EBITDA is defined by the SEC as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; however, we have excluded certain other expenses which we believe are not indicative of the ongoing operating results of our timberland portfolio, and we refer to this measure as Adjusted EBITDA (see the reconciliation table below). As such, our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Due to the significant amount of timber assets subject to depletion, significant income (loss) from unconsolidated joint ventures based on hypothetical-liquidation-at-book-value (HLBV) and the significant amount of financing subject to interest and amortization expense, management considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important measure of our financial performance. HLBV accounting is a method of determining an investor's equity in earnings of an unconsolidated joint venture based on a hypothetical liquidation of the underlying joint venture at book value as of the reporting date. The HLBV method is commonly applied to equity investments in real estate, where cash distribution percentages vary at different points in time and are not directly linked to an investor's ownership percentage. By providing this non-GAAP financial measure, together with the reconciliation below, we believe we are enhancing investors' understanding of our business and our ongoing results of operations, as well as assisting investors in evaluating how well we are executing our strategic initiatives. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of operating performance that does not represent and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for net income, cash from operations, or other financial statement data presented in accordance with GAAP in our consolidated financial statements as indicators of our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of the limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our capital expenditures, or our future requirements for capital expenditures;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or our interest expense or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on, our debt;
  • Although depletion is a non-cash charge, we will incur expenses to replace the timber being depleted in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect all cash requirements for such expenses; and
  • Although HLBV income and losses are primarily hypothetical and non-cash in nature, Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash income or losses from unconsolidated joint ventures for which the HLBV method of accounting is used to determine equity in earnings.

Due to these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business. Our credit agreement contains a minimum debt service coverage ratio based, in part, on Adjusted EBITDA since this measure is representative of adjusted income available for interest payments. We further believe that our presentation of this non-GAAP financial measurement provides information that is useful to analysts and investors because they are important indicators of the strength of our operations and the performance of our business.

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA was $16.5 million, a $5.1 million increase from the three months ended September 30, 2018, primarily due to a $3.8 million increase in Adjusted EBITDA generated by the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture, a $2.3 million increase in net timber sales and a $0.7 million increase in asset management fee revenue, offset by a $1.5 million decrease in net timberland sales.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, Adjusted EBITDA was $41.8 million, a $1.4 million increase from the nine months ended September 30, 2018, primarily due to a $6.4 million increase in asset management fee revenue, offset by a $2.2 million decrease in net timberland sales, a $2.1 million decrease in Adjusted EBITDA generated by the Dawsonville Bluffs joint venture and a $0.7 million decrease in other revenue.

     reporting date.

(5)  Large dispositions are sales of large blocks of timberland properties in one or several transactions with the objective to generate proceeds to fund capital allocation priorities. 
     Large dispositions are typically larger transactions in acreage and gross sales price than recurring HBU sales and are not part of core operations, are infrequent in nature 
     and would cause material variances in comparative results if not reported separately. Large dispositions may or may not have a higher or better use than timber production 
     or result in a price premium above the land's timber production value.

(6)  Includes certain cash expenses paid, or reimbursement received, that management believes do not directly reflect the core business operations of our timberland portfolio on an 
     on-going basis, including costs required to be expensed by GAAP related to acquisitions, transactions, joint ventures or new business initiatives.
