NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

1.  Basis of Presentation

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions of Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation with respect to the interim financial statements, have been included. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year ending December 31, 2012. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2011, included in Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co.’s (“We”, “Reliance” or the “Company”) Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts and the disclosure of contingent amounts in our consolidated financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Our consolidated financial statements include the assets, liabilities and operating results of majority-owned subsidiaries. The ownership of the other interest holders of consolidated subsidiaries is reflected as noncontrolling interests. Our investments in unconsolidated subsidiaries are recorded under the equity method of accounting. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

2.  Impact of Recently Issued Accounting Guidance

 

Accounting Guidance Recently Adopted

 

On January 1, 2012, we adopted changes issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), which requires companies to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income, or in two separate but consecutive statements. We elected to adopt the two-statement option. The new guidance eliminated the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of equity. Other than the change in presentation, the adoption of these changes had no material impact on our consolidated financial statements. The new guidance also required entities to present reclassification adjustments from accumulated other comprehensive income by component in both the statement in which net income is presented and the statement in which other comprehensive income is presented. However, in December 2011, the FASB issued guidance which indefinitely defers the guidance related to the presentation of reclassification adjustments.

 

On January 1, 2012, we adopted changes issued by the FASB to provide a consistent definition of fair value and to ensure that the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are similar between U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and International Financial Reporting Standards. The new guidance changed certain fair value measurement principles and enhanced the disclosure requirements particularly for level 3 fair value measurements. The adoption of these changes did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

3.  Acquisitions

 

2012 Acquisition

 

Effective February 1, 2012, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Diamond Manufacturing Company, we acquired McKey Perforating Co., Inc. (“McKey”), headquartered in New Berlin, Wisconsin and its subsidiary, McKey Perforated Products Co., Inc., located in Manchester, Tennessee. McKey was founded in 1867 and is a contract manufacturer that provides a full range of metal perforating and fabrication services to customers located primarily in the U.S. McKey had net sales of $3.6 million for the two months ended March 31, 2012.

 

2011 Acquisition

 

Effective August 1, 2011, we acquired all the outstanding capital securities of Continental Alloys & Services, Inc. (“Continental”), headquartered in Houston, Texas, and certain affiliated companies for a combined transaction value of approximately $440.8 million.  Continental is a leading global materials management company focused on high-end steel and alloy pipe, tube and bar products and precision manufacturing of various tools designed for well completion programs of global energy service companies and has 12 locations in seven countries including Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, the U.A.E., the United Kingdom, and the United States.  This acquisition aligns well with our diversification strategy by increasing our exposure to the fast growing energy market, including the addition of Oil Country Tubular Goods (“OCTG”) products, new processing capabilities, and entry into new international markets.  Continental and its affiliates had combined net sales of approximately $125.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

The purchase price allocation for Continental and McKey are preliminary and are pending the completion of various pre- and post-acquisition period income tax returns.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

Intangible assets recorded in connection with the McKey acquisition were $2.3 million (see Note 3). We recognized amortization expense for intangible assets of $10.2 million and $7.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Other changes in intangible assets, net during the three months ended March 31, 2012 are due to foreign currency translation gains of $2.9 million.

Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility

 

On July 26, 2011, we amended and restated the existing syndicated credit agreement to increase the borrowing limit from $1.1 billion to $1.5 billion, and to extend the maturity date of the credit facility for a five-year term to July 26, 2016.  The amended and restated revolving credit facility has 26 banks as lenders. Interest on borrowings from the amended and restated revolving credit facility is at variable rates based on LIBOR plus 1.50% or the bank prime rate plus 0.50% as of March 31, 2012.  The amended and restated revolving credit facility includes a commitment fee on the unused portion, at an annual rate of 0.25% as of March 31, 2012. The applicable margin over LIBOR rate and base rate borrowings, along with commitment fees, are subject to adjustment every quarter based on our leverage ratio, as defined.

 

Weighted average rates on borrowings outstanding on the revolving credit facility were 1.74% and 1.78% as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. As of March 31, 2012, we had $35.5 million of letters of credit outstanding under the revolving credit facility with availability to issue an additional $214.5 million of letters of credit.

Senior Unsecured Notes — Private Placements

 

We have $75.0 million of outstanding senior unsecured notes issued in private placements of debt as of March 31, 2012. At March 31, 2012, the outstanding senior notes bear interest at a fixed rate of 5.35% and have a remaining life of 1.3 years, maturing in July 2013.

 

Senior Unsecured Notes — Publicly Traded

 

On November 20, 2006, we entered into an Indenture (the “Indenture”), for the issuance of $600 million of unsecured debt securities. The total debt issued was comprised of two tranches, (a) $350 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes bearing interest at the rate of 6.20% per annum, maturing on November 15, 2016 and (b) $250 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes bearing interest at the rate of 6.85% per annum, maturing on November 15, 2036. The notes are senior unsecured obligations of Reliance and rank equally with all other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated debt obligations of Reliance. The senior unsecured notes include provisions that, in the event of a change in control and a downgrade of our credit rating, require us to make an offer to repurchase the notes at a price equal to 101% of their principal amount plus accrued interest.

 

Covenants

 

The amended and restated revolving credit facility and the senior unsecured note agreements collectively require us to maintain a minimum net worth and interest coverage ratio and a maximum leverage ratio and include a change of control provision, among other things. Our interest coverage ratio for the twelve-month period ended March 31, 2012 was approximately 10.1 times compared to the debt covenant minimum requirement of 3.0 times (interest coverage ratio is calculated as net income attributable to Reliance plus interest expense and provision for income taxes and plus or minus any non-operating non-recurring loss or gain, respectively, divided by interest expense). Our leverage ratio as of March 31, 2012 calculated in accordance with the terms of the revolving credit facility was 31.0% compared to the financial covenant maximum amount of 60% (leverage ratio is calculated as total debt, inclusive of capital lease obligations and outstanding letters of credit, divided by Reliance shareholders’ equity plus total debt). The minimum net worth requirement as of March 31, 2012 was $1.09 billion compared to Reliance shareholders’ equity balance of $3.27 billion as of March 31, 2012.

 

Additionally, all of our wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries, which constitute the substantial majority of our subsidiaries, guarantee the borrowings under the revolving credit facility, the Indenture and the private placement notes. The subsidiary guarantors, together with Reliance, are required collectively to account for at least 80% of our consolidated EBITDA and 80% of consolidated tangible assets. Reliance and the subsidiary guarantors accounted for approximately 86% of our total consolidated EBITDA for the last twelve months and approximately 89% of total consolidated tangible assets as of March 31, 2012.

 

We were in compliance with all debt covenants as of March 31, 2012.

8.  Equity

 

Common Stock

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we issued 114,416 shares of common stock in connection with the exercise of stock options for total proceeds of approximately $4.6 million.

 

Share Based Compensation

 

On March 16, 2012, we granted 391,050 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) to key employees pursuant to the Amended and Restated Stock Option and Restricted Stock Plan. Each RSU has a service condition and cliff vests at December 31, 2014 and consists of the right to receive one share of our common stock and dividend equivalent rights, subject to forfeiture, equal to the accrued cash or stock dividends where the record date for such dividends is after the grant date but before the shares vest.  In addition to the service criteria, 138,700 of the RSUs also have performance goals and vest only upon the satisfaction of the service and performance criteria.  The fair value of the restricted stock units granted was $57.42 per share, determined based on the closing price of our common stock on the grant date.

 

Share Repurchase Program

 

As of March 31, 2012, 7,883,033 shares of common stock remain authorized for repurchase under our stock repurchase program. No shares were repurchased in 2012 or 2011. Repurchased shares are redeemed and treated as authorized but unissued shares.

9.  Commitments and Contingencies

 

We are currently involved with certain environmental remediation projects related to activities at former manufacturing operations of our wholly-owned subsidiary Earle M. Jorgensen Company (“EMJ”) that were sold many years prior to our acquisition of EMJ in 2006. Although the potential cleanup costs could be significant, EMJ had insurance policies in place at the time they owned the manufacturing operations that are expected to cover the majority of the related costs. We do not expect that these obligations will have a material adverse impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

11. Subsequent Events

 

Effective April, 27, 2012, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Precision Strip, Inc., we acquired the assets of the Worthington Steel Vonore, Tennessee plant, a processing facility owned by Worthington Industries, Inc.  The Vonore plant operates as a Precision Strip, Inc. location which processes and delivers carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel products on a “toll” basis, processing the metal for a fee without taking ownership of the metal.

 

Effective April 4, 2012, we acquired all the outstanding limited liability company interests of National Specialty Alloys, LLC (“NSA”), a global specialty alloy processor and distributor of premium stainless steel and nickel alloy bars and shapes, headquartered in Houston, Texas. NSA was founded in 1985 and has additional locations in Anaheim, California, Buford, Georgia and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Net sales of NSA for the twelve months ended October 31, 2011 were approximately $96.0 million.

 

We funded these acquisitions with borrowings of approximately $101.9 million on our revolving credit facility.

12. Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements

 

In November 2006, we issued senior unsecured notes in the aggregate principal amount of $600 million at fixed interest rates that are guaranteed by our wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. The accompanying consolidating financial information has been prepared and presented pursuant to Rule 3-10 of SEC Regulation S-X “Financial Statements of Guarantors and Issuers of Guaranteed Securities Registered or Being Registered.” The guarantees are full and unconditional and joint and several obligations of each of the guarantor subsidiaries. There are no significant restrictions on our ability to obtain funds from any of the guarantor subsidiaries by dividends or loans. The supplemental consolidating financial information has been presented in lieu of separate financial statements of the guarantors as such separate financial statements are not considered meaningful.

RELIANCE STEEL & ALUMINUM CO.

 

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may contain forward-looking statements relating to future financial results. Actual results may differ materially as a result of factors over which Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. has no control. These risk factors and additional information are included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

2012 Acquisitions

 

Effective April, 27, 2012, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Precision Strip, Inc., we acquired the assets of the Worthington Steel Vonore, Tennessee plant, a processing facility owned by Worthington Industries, Inc.  The Vonore plant operates as a Precision Strip, Inc. location which processes and delivers carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel products on a “toll” basis, processing the metal for a fee without taking ownership of the metal.

 

Effective April 4, 2012, we acquired all the outstanding limited liability company interests of National Specialty Alloys, LLC (“NSA”), a global specialty alloy processor and distributor of premium stainless steel and nickel alloy bars and shapes, headquartered in Houston, Texas. NSA was founded in 1985 and has additional locations in Anaheim, California, Buford, Georgia and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Net sales of NSA for the twelve months ended October 31, 2011 were approximately $96.0 million.

 

Effective February 1, 2012, through our wholly-owned subsidiary Diamond Manufacturing Company, we acquired McKey Perforating Co., Inc. (“McKey”), headquartered in New Berlin, Wisconsin and its subsidiary, McKey Perforated Products Co., Inc., located in Manchester, Tennessee. McKey was founded in 1867 and is a contract manufacturer that provides a full range of metal perforating and fabrication services to customers located primarily in the U.S. McKey had net sales of $3.6 million for the two months ended March 31, 2012.

 

2011 Acquisition

 

Effective August 1, 2011, we acquired all the outstanding capital securities of Continental Alloys & Services, Inc. (“Continental”), headquartered in Houston, Texas, and certain affiliated companies for a combined transaction value of approximately $440.8 million. Continental is a leading global materials management company focused on high-end steel and alloy pipe, tube and bar products and precision manufacturing of various tools designed for well completion programs of global energy service companies and has 12 locations in seven countries including Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, the U.A.E., the United Kingdom, and the United States.  This acquisition aligns well with our diversification strategy by increasing our exposure to the fast growing energy market, including the addition of Oil Country Tubular Goods (“OCTG”) products, new processing capabilities, and entry into new international markets.  Continental and its affiliates had combined net sales of approximately $125.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

(1) Gross profit, calculated as net sales less cost of sales, and gross profit margin, calculated as gross profit divided by net sales, are non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude depreciation and amortization expense associated with the corresponding sales. The majority of our orders are basic distribution with no processing services performed. For the remainder of our sales orders, we perform “first-stage” processing, which is generally not labor intensive as we are simply cutting the metal to size. Because of this, the amount of related labor and overhead, including depreciation and amortization, are not significant and are excluded from our cost of sales. Therefore, our cost of sales is primarily comprised of the cost of the material we sell. We use gross profit and gross profit margin as shown above as measures of operating performance. Gross profit and gross profit margin are important operating and financial measures, as fluctuations in our gross profit and gross profit margin can have a significant impact on our earnings. Gross profit and gross profit margin, as presented, are not necessarily comparable with similarly titled measures for other companies.
