Titanium GroupFor the second quarter of 2012, the Titanium Group posted operating income of $4.9 million on sales of $86.9 million, including intersegment sales of $48.4 million. During the same period in 2011, this Group had operating income of $9.2 million on sales of $74.6 million, including intersegment sales of $38.2 million. The year-over-year decrease in the Group’s operating profit was impacted by a relatively lower-margin product mix in the current quarter, expenses associated with the production ramp up of the new forging operations at the Martinsville, VA, plant, and increased raw material costs in the recent period versus the same period in 2011. The results for the second quarter of 2011 also included a gain of $1.1 million related to the settlement of a titanium tetrachloride supply agreement matter. During the first six months of 2012, the Titanium Group posted operating income of $14.0 million on sales of $175.6 million, including intersegment sales of $98.4 million. During the first six months of 2011, operating income was $17.9 million on sales of $143.9 million, including intersegment sales of $72.0 million. Mill product shipments for the second quarter were 4.3 million pounds at an average realized price of $19.00 per pound, compared to mill product shipments of 3.3 million pounds in the second quarter of 2011 at an average realized price of $20.30 per pound. Mill product shipments for the first six months of 2012 were 8.5 million pounds at an average realized price of $19.20 per pound compared to mill product shipments of 6.5 million pounds in 2011 at an average realized price of $20.15 per pound. Decreases in realized per pound price of mill product are principally due to product mix and requirements of long-term contracts. Fabrication Group For the second quarter of 2012, the Fabrication Group had operating income of $2.3 million on net sales of $84.3 million. For the same period in 2011, this Group had an operating loss of $5.2 million on net sales of $32.2 million. During the current quarter, RTI Remmele Engineering and RTI Advanced Forming, acquisitions which closed in the middle of the first quarter of 2012 and the middle of the fourth quarter of 2011, respectively, contributed $39.1 million of profitable incremental sales. Energy-related business was also a positive contributor, while losses associated with the Boeing 787 Seat Track program were lower sequentially, as well as compared to the second quarter of 2011.
For the first six months of 2012, the Fabrication Group reported net sales of $146.1 million with an operating profit of $2.4 million, compared with net sales of $70.3 million and an operating loss of $6.5 million for the same period in 2011. The year-to-date results for 2012 include profitable sales contributions from RTI Remmele Engineering and RTI Advanced Forming.Distribution Group For the second quarter of 2012, the Distribution Group posted operating income of $4.7 million on net sales of $67.5 million. For the same period in 2011, the Group had operating income of $2.1 million on net sales of $54.6 million. The Group’s results reflect increased European demand by Airbus-enabled suppliers and a pickup in spot-market sales for titanium products, offsetting a decline in non-titanium product sales. Year-to-date, the Distribution Group reported net sales of $129.8 million resulting in operating income of $8.6 million, compared with net sales of $101.9 million and operating income of $4.1 million for the same period in the prior year. CEO COMMENT “RTI’s second quarter performance, reflecting increased sales across all our business segments on a year-to-year comparison basis, provides continuing evidence that our value-added strategy is gaining recognition in the marketplace,” said Dawne Hickton, Vice Chair, President and CEO of RTI. “While the Titanium Group sales were flat, versus first quarter performance, the Fabrication and Distribution Groups experienced increased activity. Both of the company’s new acquisitions – RTI Remmele Engineering and RTI Advanced Forming – contributed profitable sales for the Fabrication Group, and RTI’s existing Fabrication Group operations saw sales growth on both a quarter-over-quarter, as well as year-over-year basis. “As we confirmed in meetings with top executives at the recently concluded Farnborough Airshow, the ramp up in commercial aerospace is intact and on track.” Ms. Hickton also said, “RTI’s initiatives to expand downstream has gained traction with these executives, as they now see that RTI has the breadth and scale of advanced titanium engineering, precision machining and fabrication capabilities necessary to meet their increasing needs. RTI’s downstream strategy is also growing in two other key end markets. The backlog from energy customers is at a record level while capital investments at newly acquired RTI Remmele Medical have accelerated due to the growing requirements of medical device customers to enhance products while outsourcing more of their manufacturing needs.
“Overall, RTI at midyear presents the picture of a financially strong and growing company. In terms of our important end markets, the only slowdown impacting RTI is expected cutbacks in defense spending. While we are cognizant of risks posed by continuing economic uncertainty in Europe, China and the United States, we are also pleased to report that our outlook for the second half of 2012 remains positive.” Hickton concluded, “In fact for the year, we now expect titanium mill product volume to reach and possibly exceed 16 million pounds and operating income to track to the higher end of our previous guidance range of $45.0 to $50.0 million, after purchase accounting adjustments.”Conference Call Information To participate in today's 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time conference call, please dial toll free (USA/Canada) 800-447-0521 or (International) 847-413-3238 several minutes prior to the start time and specify the RTI International Metals' Conference Call.
