Rayonier Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: RYN

Corporate and other operating expenses of $10 million and $35 million for fourth quarter and full year 2012, respectively, were $2 million and $6 million above prior year periods (excluding the previously noted disposition reserve increase). The increases are primarily due to higher benefit and business development costs. Interest and other expenses for the fourth quarter and full year were lower by $4 million and $6 million, respectively, due to higher capitalized interest on the CSE project and lower borrowing rates.

Effective tax rates for the quarter and full year were 29.4 percent and 24.1 percent compared to 18.2 percent and 9.9 percent in 2011, respectively. The effective tax rates for 2012 and 2011 reflect several non-routine items.

Outlook

“We are looking forward to another strong performance in 2013,” added Boynton. “In Forest Resources, we expect an improving housing market and strengthening Asian exports to drive higher sawlog demand and prices. In Real Estate, we anticipate a significantly improved year driven by higher demand for our non-strategic properties and continued solid interest for our rural recreational and conservation properties. In Performance Fibers, 2013 will be a transition year as we bring the CSE project online, begin qualifying our new cellulose specialties product with customers and exit the absorbent materials business. However, we again expect strong results from this business, although below last year’s record results, primarily due to additional costs and lower volumes from the CSE transition, and weaker absorbent materials prices.

“Overall, excluding the impact of the sale of our Wood Products business, we expect operating income and EPS will be slightly above 2012, and that CAD will increase by 5 to 10 percent. A primary focus for 2013 will be successful completion of the CSE project which, along with closing the sale of our Wood Products business, will achieve our manufacturing strategy of exiting commodity markets and focusing operations on cellulose specialties,” concluded Boynton.
