  • EBITDA of $223.9 million on steel shipments of 2.4 million tons, with EBITDA margin of 13% and EBITDA per ton of $91.4.
  • Equity holders' net income of $44.0 million, equivalent to earnings per ADS of $0.22.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $503.7 million, including a working capital decrease of $305.8 million, as Ternium implemented several measures to adjust its operations to the reduction in sales.
  • Capital expenditures of $110.8 million, a 57% sequential decrease reflecting the company's decision to slow or postpone several projects across its facilities.
  • Free cash flow5 of $392.8 million.
  • Net debt position6 of $917.4 million at the end of June 2020, down from $1.3 billion at the end of March 2020, with net debt to last twelve months EBITDA ratio of 0.8 times.

Ternium's steel shipments in the second quarter 2020 were 2.4 million tons, decreasing 27% over the same period in 2019 and 18% on a sequential basis as Ternium's markets were deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Mexico, the company's main steel market, shipments were 1.2 million tons, decreasing 25% over the same period in 2019 and 29% on a sequential basis. The country's auto industry and construction sector gradually restarted activity following an almost complete stoppage of operations in April 2020. Other export-led manufacturing industries are currently approaching normal levels of capacity utilization.

In the Southern Region, Ternium's shipments were 343,800 tons in the second quarter 2020, a decrease of 32% compared to the same period in 2019 and of 9% on a sequential basis. In Argentina, the company reduced its activity following the imposition of a mandatory lockdown in March 2020, and it is currently increasing production rates under strict sanitary protocols, as restrictions to mobility are gradually being lifted in several parts of the country.

In the Other Markets region, Ternium's finished steel shipments decreased year-over-year and sequentially in the second quarter 2020 mainly reflecting reduced activity in Colombia following the imposition of a mandatory lockdown in March 2020, while shipments in the US and Central America remained stable. During the second quarter 2020, Ternium's slab facility in Brazil reduced its operations to minimum utilization rates, resulting in a sequential decrease in the volume of slabs shipped to other Ternium's mills and relatively stable slab shipments to third parties.

The company's EBITDA per ton decreased $9 sequentially to $91 in the second quarter, mainly reflecting lower steel prices in Ternium's main steel markets, partially offset by lower operating cost per ton.

  • EBITDA of $526.0 million on steel shipments of 5.4 million tons, with EBITDA margin of 13% and EBITDA per ton of $97.
  • Equity holders' net income of $32.5 million, equivalent to earnings per ADS of $0.17, negatively affected by a non-cash deferred tax loss of $0.85 per ADS as a result of a 18% depreciation of the Mexican peso in the period.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $946.4 million including a working capital decrease of $487.6 million.
  • Free cash flow8 of $578.0 million after capital expenditures of $368.4 million, with a current full year capital expenditure target of approximately $600 million.

Ternium's steel shipments in the first half 2020 were 5.4 million tons, decreasing 17% over the same period in 2019. Year-over year decreases in shipments were 10% in Mexico, 24% in the Southern Region and 23% in the Other Markets region, mainly related to the recession induced by the COVID-19 outbreak.

EBITDA per ton decreased $37 year-over-year to $97, mainly reflecting lower steel prices partially offset by lower slab, raw material, energy, maintenance, services and labor costs.

The company's net earnings in the first half 2020 were $32.5 million, including a $91.5 million net financial result gain, mainly due to the Mexican peso and Brazilian real depreciation of 18% and a 26%, respectively, against the US dollar, and a $166.0 million non-cash deferred tax loss due to the depreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar in the period.

COVID-19 Update

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact economic activity worldwide, Ternium's shipments in all of its markets are gradually recovering as local lockdowns and operating restrictions continue to relax. The company's facilities in Mexico are approaching normal production rates, and its blast furnaces in Brazil and Argentina have meaningfully increased production from the minimum technical levels reached during the second quarter due to the outbreak-induced reduction in steel demand.

Ternium continues to operate all facilities under strict sanitary protocols, which include daily temperature checks for all on-site workers and prompt testing of all individuals showing symptoms along with their close contacts to ensure proactive contagion prevention. The company has also conducted an extensive communications program across its facilities to promote health and wellness protocols at both work and home.

Despite all of the markets in which Ternium operates are showing signs of improvement, uncertainty persists regarding the extent and timing of the future spread of COVID-19 as well as the future imposition or relaxation of protective measures. To align its business with the current operating environment, Ternium took several measures during the second quarter of 2020 to increase liquidity and strengthen its financial position. Net cash provided by operating activities reached $503.7 million in the quarter, including a $305.8 million working capital release, and capital expenditures decreased significantly to $110.8 million. Consequently, net debt as of June 30, 2020 decreased by $367.3 million to $917.4 million, equivalent to a net debt to last twelve months EBITDA ratio of 0.8x.

Outlook

Ternium expects EBITDA in the third quarter 2020 to be in line with EBITDA in the second quarter, with higher steel shipments and slightly lower margin mainly due to softer prices in the North American market. The company anticipates a shipment increase in key markets during the third quarter 2020, partially offset by lower slab sales to third parties.

While steel market disruptions in Mexico related to COVID-19 significantly affected Ternium's shipments in the second quarter 2020, with a 29% sequential decrease, the easing of operating restrictions in the country is enabling a gradual return of activity in the auto industry, as well as in other export-led manufacturing industries, including household appliances and lighting. Coupled with an improvement in the company's market share, this return to activity should support a shipment recovery in Mexico during the third quarter 2020.

In Brazil, increased production rates in Ternium's slab facility in the third quarter 2020 should facilitate a higher level of integration with the company's industrial system. Further, improvements in economic activity in the country are driving a recovery in the local steel industry's slab demand.

In the Argentine market, following record-low shipments in the second quarter 2020, Ternium expects a sequential volume increase primarily driven by higher activity levels in construction, the agribusiness sector and the canning and white goods industries, as restrictions in many parts of the country are gradually being relaxed.

Cost of sales was $1.5 billion in the second quarter 2020, a decrease of $768.9 million compared to the second quarter 2019. This was principally due to a $654.8 million, or 36%, decrease in raw material and consumables used, mainly reflecting a 27% decrease in steel shipment volumes and lower purchased slabs, raw material and energy costs; and to a $114.0 million decrease in other costs, mainly including a $54.7 million decrease in maintenance expenses, a $45.7 million decrease in labor costs and a $16.3 decrease in services and fees.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses in the second quarter 2020 were $171.5 million, or 10% of net sales, a decrease of $72.2 million compared to SG&A expenses in the second quarter 2019 mainly due to a $23.8 million decrease in freight and transportation expenses, a $14.8 million decrease in labor costs, a $13.8 million decrease in amortization of intangible assets, a $12.1 million decrease in taxes and a $6.3 million decrease in services and fees.

Operating income in the second quarter 2020 was $65.6 million, or 4% of net sales, compared to operating income of $236.4 million, or 9% of net sales in the second quarter 2019. The following table outlines Ternium's operating income by segment for the second quarter 2020 and second quarter 2019:

Net financial results were a $14.6 million loss in the second quarter 2020, compared to a $7.1 million loss in the second quarter 2019. During the second quarter 2020, Ternium's net financial interest results totaled a loss of $6.5 million, compared to a loss of $14.9 million in the second quarter 2019 mainly reflecting lower average indebtedness.

Net foreign exchange results in the second quarter 2020 were a loss of $8.8 million. In the period, the Mexican peso appreciated 2% against the US dollar, resulting in a negative impact in Ternium's Mexican subsidiaries' net short local currency position.

Equity in results of non-consolidated companies was a loss of $19.7 million in the second quarter 2020, compared to a gain of $20.3 million in the second quarter 2019 mainly due to negative results from Ternium's investment in Usiminas.

Income tax in the second quarter 2020 was a gain of $12.3 million compared to a loss of $46.5 million in the second quarter 2019. Income tax in the second quarter 2020 included a $23.4 million non-cash gain on deferred taxes due to the appreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar, which reduces, in U.S. dollar terms, the tax base used to calculate deferred taxes at our Mexican subsidiaries (which have the U.S dollar as their functional currency).

Cost of sales was $3.4 billion in the first half 2020, a decrease of $1.1 billion compared to the first half 2019. This was principally due to a $911.7 million, or 26%, decrease in raw material and consumables used, mainly reflecting a 17% decrease in steel shipment volumes and lower purchased slabs, raw material and energy costs; and to a $151.7 million decrease in other costs, mainly including a $81.5 million decrease in maintenance expenses, a $58.7 million decrease in labor costs and a $20.0 decrease in services and fees.

Selling, General & Administrative (SG&A) expenses in the first half 2020 were $383.0 million, or 10% of net sales, a decrease of $79.6 million compared to SG&A expenses in the first half 2019 mainly due to $21.8 million decrease in freight and transportation expenses, a $17.4 million decrease in labor costs, a $16.1 million decrease in amortization of intangible assets, a $12.4 million decrease in taxes and a $8.9 million decrease in services and fees.

Operating income in the first half 2020 was $201.3 million, or 5% of net sales, compared to operating income of $543.7 million, or 10% of net sales in the first half 2019. The following table outlines Ternium's operating income by segment for the first half 2020 and first half 2019:

Net financial results were a $91.5 million gain in the first half 2020, compared to a $34.0 million loss in the first half 2019. During the first half 2020, Ternium's net financial interest results totaled a loss of $14.9 million, compared to a loss of $28.8 million in the first half 2019 mainly reflecting lower average indebtedness.

Net foreign exchange results in the first half 2020 were a gain of $100.5 million compare to a loss of $43.1 million in the first half 2019. In the first half 2020, the Mexican peso and the Brazilian real depreciated 18% and 26%, respectively, against the US dollar, resulting in a positive impact in Ternium's Mexican and Brazilian subsidiaries' net short local currency position.

Equity in results of non-consolidated companies was a loss of $13.6 million in the first half 2020, compared to a gain of $35.2 million in 2019 mainly due to negative results from Ternium's investment in Usiminas.

Income tax expense in the first half 2020 was $255.0 million compared to $116.7 million in the first half 2019. Income tax in the first half 2020 included a $166.0 million non-cash loss on deferred taxes due to the significant devaluation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar, which changes, in U.S. dollar terms, the tax base used to calculate deferred taxes at our Mexican subsidiaries (which have the U.S dollar as their functional currency).

Cash Flow and Liquidity

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first half of 2020 was $946.4 million. Working capital decreased by $487.6 million in the first half of 2020 as a result of a $354.4 million decrease in inventories and an aggregate $215.4 million decrease in trade and other receivables, partially offset by an aggregate $82.3 million net decrease in accounts payable and other liabilities. The inventory value decrease in the first half of 2020 was due to a $191.6 million lower steel volume, a $114.3 million inventory value decrease in raw materials, supplies and other, and a $48.5 million lower cost of steel.

Capital expenditures in the first half of 2020 were $368.4 million, $120.5 million lower than in the first half of 2019 as Ternium has slowed or postponed several projects across its facilities, including its new hot-rolling mill in the company's Pesquería industrial center in Mexico. The main investments carried out during the first half of 2020 included those made for the new hot-rolling mill, the capacity expansion of the pulverized coal injection system in the company's Rio de Janeiro unit in Brazil, and projects aimed at further improving environmental and safety conditions throughout our main facilities.

In the first half of 2020, Ternium's free cash flow reached $578.0 million and net repayment of borrowings were $99.3 million. As of June 30, 2020, Ternium had a net debt position of $0.9 billion.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter 2020 was $503.7 million. Working capital decreased by $305.8 million in the second quarter 2020 as a result of an aggregate $282.2 million decrease in trade and other receivables and $279.7 million decrease in inventories, partially offset by an aggregate $256.1 million net decrease in accounts payable and other liabilities. The inventory value decrease in the second quarter 2020 was due to a $213.9 million lower steel volume and a $88.6 million inventory value decrease in raw materials, supplies and other, partially offset by $22.8 million higher cost of steel. In the second quarter 2020, Ternium's free cash flow reached $392.8 million and net repayment of borrowings were $229.2 million.
