Ferroglobe PLC Announces Share Repurchase Program

LONDON, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ferroglobe PLC (NASDAQ:GSM) (“Ferroglobe” or the “Company”), the global leader in the production of silicon metal and a leading producer of silicon- and manganese-based specialty alloys, announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $20 million of the Company’s ordinary shares in the period ending December 31, 2018.

“The Board of Directors believes that Ferroglobe’s recently prevailing share prices do not reflect the Company’s long-term intrinsic value, and that authorizing a share repurchase program is appropriate in light of our confidence in the business and its outlook.  We consider our shares to offer an attractive investment opportunity.  The allocation of funds to the buy-back will be balanced with our commitment to continue deleveraging the Company and with other value enhancing opportunities as they arise,” said Javier López Madrid, Ferroglobe’s Executive Chairman.

The Company has entered into Rule 10b5-1 repurchase plans with appointed brokers under which the Company will undertake purchases of its ordinary shares acquired by the brokers on the NASDAQ Global Select Market and through other permitted channels. The amount and timing of the share repurchases are subject to a number of factors, including Ferroglobe’s share price and trading volumes.

Share repurchases under the program may be made through a variety of methods and the program does not oblige the Company to repurchase any specific number of shares. Save as required by applicable regulation, the program may be amended, suspended or discontinued by the Board of Directors at any time. 

The Company intends to fund the repurchase program using existing cash and the proceeds of cash generating initiatives previously announced.

Year-to-date (H1 2018) adjusted EBITDA was $175.9 million, up 135% from the same period in 2017.

“This was a solid quarter for Ferroglobe, culminating a first half of the year which confirms the improved fundamentals of our business and validates the positive momentum in the markets we are serving,” said Pedro Larrea, CEO of Ferroglobe. “In the year to date we have significantly increased volumes and selling prices and our EBITDA has more than doubled compared with the same period last year. The steel industries in North America and Europe - the main end markets for most of our alloys - are experiencing strong demand and high capacity utilizations in the wake of recent trade protection measures. Prices  of our products have remained broadly stable overall, and current supply/demand dynamics in our industry should support continued healthy pricing.”

Cash flow generation impacted by acquisition related working capital

During the second quarter, cash flows used for operations was $4.6 million, the main driver being a working capital increase of $70.0 million during Q2 2018. Approximately half of that increase is from the recently acquired manganese-alloy plants that have built their operating working capital, with a further increase from seasonally high raw materials and finished products inventories in the rest of our operations.

Ferroglobe’s net debt was $475.3 million as of June 30, 2018, up from $449.3 million as of March 31, 2018. The increase in net debt is mainly due to the $70 million working capital increase noted above. Excluding the acquisition impact of the manganese-alloy plants, net debt has decreased by $1.6 million as compared with December 31, 2017. 

“We continue to be focused on cash generation and deleveraging the balance sheet,” said Phillip Murnane, Ferroglobe’s CFO. “Although the first half of the year has required meaningful cash investment in working capital for the new manganese assets, we have a rigorous cash generation initiative in place that will provide significant cash flow release in the second half of the year.”

The Company has declared an interim dividend

Ferroglobe’s Board of Directors has declared an interim dividend of $0.06 per share, further reflecting its confidence in the underlying strength of Ferroglobe’s business and long-term outlook.  The dividend will have a record date of September 5, 2018 and a payment date of September 20, 2018.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of U.S. securities laws. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts but are based on certain assumptions of management and describe the Company’s future plans, strategies and expectations. Forward-looking statements often use forward-looking terminology, including words such as "anticipate", "believe", "could", "estimate", "expect", "forecast", "guidance", "intends", "likely", "may", "plan", "potential", "predicts", "seek", "will" and  words of similar meaning or the negative thereof.

Forward-looking statements contained in this press release are based on information currently available to the Company and assumptions that management believe to be reasonable, but are inherently uncertain. 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

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted profit (loss) per ordinary share and adjusted profit (loss) 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.

(“PyroGenesis”).

Bernard J. Tourillon, Chairman and CEO of HPQ Silicon stated, “Closing these financings, at more than a 40% premium to present market price, is a tangible validation that both the Quebec Government and PyroGenesis believe in the innovative potential of our PUREVAPtm QRR process.  With these financings earmarked for the completion of our pilot equipment project closed, our objective going forward will be delivering on the Gen3 PUREVAP™ Pilot Plant phase with our “Solar Silicon Team” as well as building market awareness of our progress, plans and success.”

The Quebec government, through its “Créativité Québec” program, via Investissement Québec (IQ), has subscribed to an unsecured Convertible Debenture for gross proceeds of $1,800,000.  Net proceeds of  $1,713,622 was received by HPQ on August 20, 2018, after deductions of filing studies fees and legal fees emanating from IQ lawyers for the due diligence review.

The 5-year Convertible Debenture matures on August 20, 2023 and bears interest at a rate of 5% per annum. The interest payment can be accrued, at the Company’s option, up to the term of the Debenture.  IQ will have the right, at anytime, to convert the Debenture into common shares of HPQ at a price of $0.12 per share.  IQ may also, at the date of the conversion of the capital into shares, convert the accrued interest payable in shares of HPQ, subject to the approval of the TSX-Venture and the conversion price for the payment of the accrued interest will be established in accordance with the policies of the TSX-Venture.

HPQ will be allowed to proceed with an early repayment of the Debenture, capital and accrued interest, 36 months after the issuance of the debenture, subject to the payment to IQ by HPQ of a redemption premium equal to a compounded annual return of 20% on the capital of the Debenture.

Concurrent to the issuance of the Debenture, HPQ issued to IQ 15,000,000 Warrants, each Warrant entitling IQ to purchase one common share of the capital stock of HPQ at an exercise price of $ 0.17, for a period of 36 months from the close.  The Debenture, the warrants and any stock issuance emanating from the Debenture and or warrant exercise will be subject to a holding period until December 20, 2018.

HPQ has closed the 16,250,000 units ("Unit") at $0.12 per Unit private placement with PyroGenesis for a gross and net proceeds of $1,950,000.  Each Unit is comprised of one (1) common share and one (1) common share purchase warrant (“Warrant") of the Company.  Each Warrant will entitle Pyrogenesis to purchase one common share of the capital stock of the Company at an exercise price of $ 0.17 for a period of 36 months from the date of closing of the placement. Each share issued pursuant to the placement will be subject to a holding period until December 20, 2018.

The TSX venture exchange (TSX-V) has conditionally approved the $ 1,500,000 Equity Line of credit PyroGenesis has granted to HPQ.  The equity line of credit can only be used to cover unexpected project cost overruns that could potentially occur after then end of planned test period in 2019 until December 31, 2020.

To be acceptable under the terms of the Equity Line of Credit, Cost Overruns shall be considered as such by both Parties and approved before they are incurred.  Upon approval, HPQ must send a written thirty days (30) notice of it’s intent to drawdown the Equity Line of Credit to pay for the Cost Overruns.  Once the approved work is completed, PyroGenesis shall remit to HPQ an invoice covering the completed work and HPQ will organize the payment of the invoice by means of issuance of common shares of its capital stock, as prescribed by TSX Venture Exchange policies, for a number of shares totalling the amount of the applicable invoice at an issuance price equal to the share quote on the invoice date, less a ten percent (10%) discount.
