Share

Coronavirus Update

  • As of today, out of over 3,000 employees we have 9 active confirmed coronavirus cases globally. AMG has not experienced any coronavirus related fatalities, and our current cases have not resulted in a facility closure or operational interruption. AMG continues to implement preventive measures such as practicing social distancing, remote working when possible, and restrictions on travel to protect the health and safety of our employees.

Strategic Highlights

  • The construction of AMG’s second ferrovanadium plant in Zanesville, Ohio is proceeding as planned. As of April 22, 2021, AMG Vanadium had committed $257 million in construction and engineering contracts. All significant contracts for the project have now been committed and signed.
  • AMG Vanadium signed a new long-term, multi-year agreement to process and recycle spent catalysts from a major oil refinery operator in North America.

  • AMG has progressed its methodology to achieve Verified Carbon Unit (VCU) credits. AMG’s proposed Verra Carbon Standard for processing metal bearing wastes has passed through public comment and is currently being reviewed by an approved third-party validation/verification body.

Financial Highlights

  • EBITDA was $28.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, 27% higher than the first quarter 2020 EBITDA of $22.3 million.
  • Cash from operating activities was $19.9 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of $23.6 million over the same period in 2020.
  • Net income attributable to shareholders was $5.1 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to a net loss of $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2020.
  • AMG’s liquidity as of March 31, 2021, was $381 million, with $211 million of unrestricted cash and $170 million of revolving credit availability.
  • The Company has maintained its final 2020 declared dividend of €0.10 to be paid to shareholders of record on May 13, 2021.
  • AMG was promoted from the Euronext’s AScX® (small cap) index to their AMX® (mid cap) index, effective March 22, 2021.

Amsterdam, 5 May 2021(Regulated Information) --- AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V. (“AMG”, EURONEXT AMSTERDAM: “AMG”) reported first quarter 2021 revenue of $264.0 million, a 5% decrease from $278.3 million in the first quarter of 2020. EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021 was $28.3 million, a 27% increase over the $22.3 million in the same period in 2020.

Dr. Heinz Schimmelbusch, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO, said, “Out of over 3,000 AMG employees at 33 sites in 15 countries, AMG has 9 active confirmed coronavirus cases globally. AMG’s priority continues to be the health and safety of our employees.

“All three of AMG’s segments performed well in the first quarter. Global demand for our products started to strengthen in the second half of 2020 and has further accelerated in 2021.

“Market prices for materials across the Company’s portfolio have increased from the depressed levels we faced at the peak of the pandemic. Prices for both the AMG Clean Energy Materials segment and the AMG Critical Minerals segment have improved, which has positively impacted financial results relative to the prior year.

“EBITDA for the AMG Critical Materials Technologies segment is lower than the same period in 2020, however, the segment delivered sequentially increasing EBITDA in the first three months of 2021 for the third straight quarter, improving 37% from the fourth quarter of 2020 while recording a greater than 1.0 book to bill ratio.

“Last year, we communicated that we believed that the second quarter of 2020 would be the pandemic low and our financial results have proven that to be true as our EBITDA has improved sequentially each quarter since then.

“AMG’s strategic projects have all advanced during the quarter. We have finalized all outstanding major contracts for the construction of our new recycling plant in Ohio and we are proceeding toward project completion at the end of the first quarter of next year. AMG Brazil is operating at full capacity and preliminary engineering for the spodumene expansion, known as SP1+, is underway post the receipt of a $20 million prepayment from our customer. AMG Lithium commenced detailed engineering as well as the purchase of long lead time items, and in addition purchased a site on the premises of Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen for the lithium hydroxide upgrader project.

“We made progress in our comprehensive strategy to advance our CO2 reduction activities. In particular, AMG has progressed its methodology to achieve Verified Carbon Unit (VCU) credits. AMG’s proposed Verra Carbon Standard for processing metal bearing wastes has passed through public comment and is currently being reviewed by an approved third-party validation/verification body.

“Although not reflected in the first quarter financial results, in April 2021 AMG issued 3.1 million new shares, generating $119 million of net proceeds and increasing current liquidity to approximately $500 million. With this equity raise, in combination with cash on hand and strong projected cash flow from operations, AMG believes it can fully fund its current strategic Clean Energy Materials projects while maintaining strong balance sheet and liquidity positions.”

Notes:
(1)   EBIT is defined as earnings before interest and income taxes. EBIT excludes restructuring, asset impairment, inventory cost adjustments, environmental provisions, exceptional legal expenses, equity-settled share-based payments, and strategic expenses. Beginning January 1, 2021, AMG has altered its calculation of adjusted EBIT to no longer include the impact of foreign exchange. This alteration was made in consideration of a change in the Company’s hedging policy and to better align the reported adjusted EBITDA with the calculation for our bank covenant calculations. Starting January 2021, the Company is no longer hedging certain intergroup balance sheet exposures which will result in higher volatility in our financial results from foreign exchange which we believe is not representative of our operating performance. Foreign exchange loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $3.0 million. Because of this hedging policy change, we did not retroactively apply this change to the prior year figures, otherwise it would have resulted in a reduction of prior year EBIT of $0.9 million.
(2)   EBITDA is defined as EBIT adjusted for depreciation and amortization.

Operational Review

AMG Clean Energy Materials

Q1 ‘21Q1 ‘20Change
Revenue$70,627$69,2192%
Gross profit13,2034,307207%
Gross profit before non-recurring items13,3833,897243%
Operating profit (loss)3,605(5,654)N/A
EBITDA10,286(1,048)N/A

AMG Clean Energy Materials’ revenue increased by $1.4 million, or 2%, to $70.6 million, driven mainly by higher sales volumes of tantalum and lithium concentrate and higher prices in vanadium, tantalum and lithium concentrate.

Gross profit before non-recurring items more than tripled in the first quarter due to the improving price environment experienced in the first quarter of 2021.

SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2021 were $9.6 million, 3% lower than the first quarter of 2020 due to non-recurring legal expenses in the first quarter of 2020.

The first quarter 2021 EBITDA increased by $11.3 million, to $10.3 million from negative $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2020, due to the improved gross profit and SG&A noted above.

AMG Critical Minerals

Q1 ‘21Q1 ‘20Change
Revenue$72,916$57,76026%
Gross profit13,15410,28928%
Gross profit before non-recurring items13,07110,30827%
Operating profit6,5604,28553%
EBITDA9,0126,80732%

AMG Critical Minerals’ revenue increased by $15.2 million, or 26%, to $72.9 million, driven by higher sales volumes and higher sales prices across all three business units.

Gross profit before non-recurring items increased by 27% in the first quarter due to increased revenue noted above.

SG&A expenses in the first quarter of 2021 slightly increased by $0.5 million, to $6.6 million, primarily due to higher personnel costs and insurance expenses in the current period.

The first quarter 2021 EBITDA margin was 12%, in line with the same period in the prior year.

AMG Critical Materials Technologies

Q1 ‘21Q1 ‘20Change
Revenue$120,443$151,311(20%)
Gross profit20,50728,564(28%)
Gross profit before non-recurring items20,56928,894(29%)
Operating profit3,6449,695(62%)
EBITDA9,04116,570(45%)

AMG Critical Materials Technologies' first quarter 2021 revenue decreased by $30.9 million, or 20%, due to reduced aerospace activity and volume reductions. These declines were partially offset by higher revenue from remelting and nuclear waste recycling furnaces, highlighting AMG Engineering’s diversified technology base outside of its aerospace activities. As a result of these factors, first quarter 2021 gross profit before non-recurring items decreased by $8.3 million, or 29%, to $20.6 million.

SG&A expenses decreased by $2.0 million, or 11%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020, due to lower personnel costs and lower professional fees as a result of cost reduction efforts across the business.

AMG Critical Materials Technologies’ first quarter EBITDA decreased by 45% to $9.0 million from $16.6 million in the first quarter of 2020 due to lower profitability related to the pandemic-impacted aerospace market, offset partially by cost reduction efforts. First quarter EBITDA was 37% higher than fourth quarter 2020, demonstrating continuing recovery in the segment.

Order backlog was $190.7 million as of March 31, 2021, a 4% decrease from $198.1 million as of December 31, 2020. The Company signed $57.5 million in new orders during the first quarter of 2021, representing a 1.03x book to bill ratio. The quarter benefited from strong orders of remelting, induction, and heat treatment furnaces.

Financial Review

Tax

AMG recorded an income tax benefit of $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to an expense of $16.5 million in the same period in 2020. This variance was mainly driven by movements in the Brazilian real offset partially by higher pre-tax income compared to the prior period. The effects of the Brazilian real caused a $14.2 million lower non-cash tax expense in the first quarter of 2021 versus the first quarter of 2020. Movements in the Brazilian real exchange rate impact the valuation of the Company’s net deferred tax positions related to our operations in Brazil.

AMG paid taxes of $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to tax payments of $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Exceptional Items

AMG’s first quarter 2021 gross profit of $46.9 million includes exceptional items, which are not included in the calculation of EBITDA.

A summary of exceptional items included in gross profit in the first quarters of 2021 and 2020 are below:

Exceptional items included in gross profit

Q1 ‘21Q1 ‘20Change
Gross profit$46,864$43,1609%
Inventory cost adjustment (reversal)(333)(1,901)82%
Restructuring expense67 428 (84%)
Asset impairment (reversal) expense(136)17 N/A
Strategic project expense561 1,395 (60%)
Gross profit excluding exceptional items47,023 43,099 9%

AMG had a $0.3 million exceptional non-cash net reversal during the first quarter of 2021 as a result of inventory cost adjustments primarily from our Brazilian operations, which has been adjusted in EBITDA. During the quarter, the Company incurred expenses for expansion projects which are not yet operational. AMG is adjusting EBITDA for these exceptional charges.

Liquidity

Senior secured debt$363,917$364,640
Cash & equivalents211,079207,3662%
Senior secured net debt152,838157,274(3%)

Municipal bond debt319,645319,699
Restricted cash175,041208,919(16%)
Net debt317,217287,93010%

AMG had a net debt position of $317.2 million as of March 31, 2021. This increase was mainly due to the significant investment in growth initiatives during the quarter, especially in our vanadium expansion in Ohio.

AMG continued to maintain a strong balance sheet and adequate sources of liquidity during the first quarter. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $211 million in unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and $170 million available on its revolving credit facility. As such, AMG had $381 million of total liquidity as of March 31, 2021.

Subsequent to the close of the quarter, AMG issued additional shares and generated $119 million of net proceeds which are not reflected in the above figures.

Net Finance Costs

AMG’s first quarter 2021 net finance costs were $8.7 million compared to $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. This increase is mainly driven by higher foreign exchange losses during the quarter, which were partially offset by lower borrowing rates versus the prior period.

AMG capitalized $3.8 million of interest costs in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $2.8 million in the prior year, driven by interest associated with the Company’s tax-exempt municipal bond supporting the vanadium expansion in Ohio.

SG&A

AMG’s first quarter 2021 SG&A expenses were $33.1 million compared to $34.9 million in the first quarter of 2020, primarily due to lower professional fees and continued cost reduction efforts across the business.

Outlook

Due to improving market conditions, AMG's financial results for the first quarter were above previous expectations. We believe that these improvements will continue as we advance in 2021 and, as such, we are updating our outlook for the full year to exceed $120 million EBITDA.

AMG’s long-term guidance will be detailed at the Annual General Meeting tomorrow at 15:00 CEST.

*Beginning January 1, 2021, AMG has altered its calculation of adjusted EBITDA to no longer include the impact of foreign exchange. This alteration was made in consideration of a change in the Company’s hedging policy and to better align the reported adjusted EBITDA with the calculation for our bank covenant calculations. Starting January 2021, the Company is no longer hedging certain intergroup balance sheet exposures which will result in higher volatility in our financial results from foreign exchange which we believe is not representative of our ongoing operating performance. Foreign exchange loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $3.0 million. Because of this hedging policy change, we did not retroactively apply this change to the prior year figures, otherwise it would have resulted in a reduction of the prior year adjusted EBIT of $0.9 million.

**Amount includes variable compensation expense which was share-settled in 2021.

***The Company is in the ramp-up phase for three significant strategic expansion projects, including AMG Vanadium’s expansion project, the joint venture with Shell, and the lithium expansion in Germany, which incurred project expenses during the quarter but are not yet operational. AMG is adjusting EBITDA for these exceptional charges.
