Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc. Reports Results For Third Quarter 2012

Outlook

The company expects its full-year harvest to approximate 17.5 million tons, including approximately 700,000 tons from this year’s timber deed acquisition.

During the fourth quarter, the company expects to harvest approximately 1 million tons in its Northern Resources segment and approximately 3 million tons in its Southern Resources segment.

Fourth quarter Real Estate segment sales are expected to be between $60 million and $80 million.

In the fourth quarter, seasonally lower sales volumes are expected to reduce the Manufacturing segment’s profitability compared to the third quarter.

The company expects to report fourth quarter earnings between $0.25 and $0.30 per share.

“Our operations continue to perform well and our operating flexibility allows us to respond quickly to our customers’ needs as markets improve. We expect the results from our timber business to improve further in 2013 as the housing market and economy continue to strengthen,” continued Holley.

“We are excited about the future, and look forward to 2013 with optimism. Disciplined capital allocation is just as important in a recovery as it is during a downturn. It remains our top priority at Plum Creek. We continually evaluate the best use of the cash we generate with the goals of delivering value to shareholders while growing the per-share value of the company over time,” concluded Holley.
