* Throughout the results, the amounts for prior periods have been restated to reflect the impact of the profit / (loss) from discontinued operations associated with the sale of FerroAtlántica S.A.U., owner of the Cee-Dumbria plant and hydroelectric assets in Spain.

Beatriz García-Cos, Ferroglobe’s Chief Financial Officer commented, “The Company’s disappointing fourth quarter results are representative of the challenges faced throughout 2019.  We experienced continued pricing and volume pressures during the quarter, with increased costs as a result of the previously announced operational curtailments.  To mitigate the impact of these challenges, we successfully executed a number of cash generating initiatives, selling non-core assets, reducing inventory and releasing cash through the refinancing of the Company’s accounts receivable securitization program.  Given these headwinds and their impact on our balance sheet, a new strategic plan is being developed  aimed at returning the Company to profitability.”

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash generated from operations during Q4 2019 was $45.5 million, with working capital positively impacted by a decrease in inventories,  offset by a decrease in payables. Working capital decreased from $579 million as of September 30, 2019 to $481 million at December 31, 2019.

Gross debt was $481 million as of December 31, 2019, down significantly from $556 million as of September 30, 2019, primarily as a result of refinancing the Company’s former revolving credit facility (“RCF”).

Recent developments

On October 4, 2019, Ferroglobe subsidiary, Silicon Smelters (Pty.) Ltd. completed the sale of its remaining timberlands in South Africa for net proceeds of ZAR 130 million ($8.58 million).

On October 11, 2019, Ferroglobe completed the closing of a new five-year, $100 million North American asset-based revolving loan (“ABL”), with an initial draw of $70 million, which was used, along with cash on hand, to repay in full the RCF. This marked an important step in the Company’s overall strategy to de-risk the balance sheet, as the ABL has no leverage-based or financial-based covenants and has reduced liquidity requirements as compared to the RCF, affording the Company enhanced flexibility.

On December 10, 2019, Ferroglobe refinanced its prior accounts receivable securitization program with a new two-year, $150 million European program (“new A/R Program”), of which $104 million was utilized at closing. Subsequently, the incorporation of a special purpose vehicle (“SPV”) into the program resulted in significant additional receivables qualifying into the program.

Beatriz García-Cos, Ferroglobe’s Chief Financial Officer commented, “The successful closing of the new A/R Program has a significant impact on our cash conversion in Europe.  At closing, approximately $23 million of cash was released and another $31.5 million was released on incorporation of the SPV in February 2020.  These steps highlight the Company’s continued efforts to optimize the business operationally and financially.”

COVID-19

Marco Levi, Ferroglobe’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “ To date our business has not been directly impacted by the coronavirus. However, given the increasing concerns around the spreading of this virus globally, we continue to monitor the potential impact on our business very closely.”

Subsequent Event

On January 13, 2020, Ferroglobe appointed Dr. Marco Levi as its Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”). As CEO,  Dr. Levi was subsequently appointed to the Company’s Board of Directors on January 15, 2020, bringing the number of Directors on the Board to nine.

Sales Prices & Volumes By Product

During Q4 2019, total product average selling prices decreased by 3.5% versus Q3 2019. Q4 average selling prices of silicon metal remained unchanged, silicon-based alloys prices decreased  4.4%, and manganese-based alloys prices decreased  7.5%.

Sales volumes in Q4 declined by 1.2% versus the prior quarter.  Q4 sales volumes of silicon metal increased 2.3%, silicon-based alloys decreased 7.7%, and manganese-based alloys increased 1.3% versus Q4 2019.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales was $300.6 million in Q4 2019, an increase from $277.7 million in the prior quarter. Cost of sales as a percentage of sales increased to 82.5% in Q4 2019 versus 72.8% for Q3 2019, linked primarily to product mix, costs associated with implementing the temporary curtailments to our operations, and inventory write downs across our product portfolio.

Other Operating Expenses

Other operating expenses was $58.8 million in Q4 2019, an increase from $50.1 million in the prior quarter. This increase is primarily attributable to non recurrent costs associated with the energy contracts at plants in Europe temporarily idled.

Net Loss Attributable to the Parent

In Q4 2019, net loss attributable to the Parent was $74.5 million, or $(0.44) per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to the Parent of $140.5 million, or $(0.83) per diluted share in Q3 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA

In Q4 2019, adjusted EBITDA was $(38.1) million, or -10.5% of sales, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $(7.2) million, or -1.9% of sales in Q3 2019, primarily due to weaker pricing and costs incurred in Q4 2019.

As a result, Ferroglobe’s actual results, performance or achievements may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, which are not guarantees of future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control.

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net profit, adjusted profit per share, working capital and net debt, 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.
