Mechel Reports The 9M 2012 Financial Results

Stocks in this article: MTL

In 3Q2012, the operating loss in the ferroalloys segment decreased by 81.9% and totaled $24.5 million, or -21.5% of total segment revenue, as compared to an operating loss of $135.3 million, or    -87.6% of total segment revenue, in 2Q2012. The adjusted EBITDA in the ferroalloys segment in 3Q2012 increased by 57.4% and amounted to negative $3.1 million, compared to segment's adjusted negative EBITDA of $7.4 million in 2Q2012. The adjusted EBITDA margin of the ferroalloys segment was -2.8% in 3Q2012 compared to the adjusted EBITDA margin of -4.8% in 2Q2012. The ferroalloys segment's depreciation, depletion and amortization in 3Q2012 was $20.9 million, a decrease of 23.7% over $27.4 million in 2Q2012.

Mechel-Ferroalloys Management OOO's Chief Executive Officer Sergey Zhilyakov noted:

"As the situation on the ferroalloy product markets continues to worsen, we had to resort to drastic measures in a bid to reduce the negative economic effect. In the third quarter, production at Southern Urals Nickel Plant was dramatically reduced. In late September, nickel production at the plant was halted completely. Tikhvin Ferroalloy Plant's production program was also revised. At the same time, Bratsk Ferroalloy Plant, using its modernized furnace's full capacity, increased manufacturing products whose sales bring the company profit even despite the markets' high volatility. As a result, operational loss and negative EBITDA were markedly reduced. The division will continue to optimize its operations in a bid to achieve positive results."
