Phased and Integrated Capacity Expansion Strategy

  • Houlton, Maine mill to be converted to SmartSide manufacture with production beginning in early 2022
  • Next siding conversion after Houlton likely to be Sagola, Michigan mill
  • Initiating process to restart our Peace Valley OSB mill in Fort St. John, British Columbia

Capital Allocation Update

  • Completed $200 million share buyback authorization in the fourth quarter
  • $300 million buyback authorization remains
  • Declared a 10% increase in quarterly cash dividends to $0.16 per share

"LP ended 2020 having exceeded our 3-year transformation targets for growth and efficiency, with a cumulative EBITDA impact of $178 million. We reached this milestone a year early, largely as a result of exceptional SmartSide sales growth, which reached 30% in Q4," said LP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brad Southern. "In order to meet growing customer demand for SmartSide and OSB, LP will convert our mill in Houlton, Maine to the manufacture of SmartSide, with production beginning early in 2022, and we have begun the process to restart our OSB mill in Peace Valley, British Columbia. COVID made 2020 a difficult year for LP employees, our customers, their families, and the communities we all serve. Our results are a testament to their resilience and determination, and I am extremely proud of the results we achieved in the face of these challenges."

Fourth Quarter 2020 Highlights

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by $323 million (or 60%) over the prior year to $860 million. SmartSide revenue increased by $59 million (or 30%) and OSB prices increased by $246 million. LP South America revenue increased by $12 million, net of $4 million in unfavorable currency movements. The strategic exits from fiber and CanExel™ products reduced net sales by $21 million and $7 million, respectively.

Net income attributed to LP for the fourth quarter 2020 increased by $307 million over the prior year to $256 million ($2.34 per diluted share). In addition to the growth in SmartSide sales and increases in OSB prices, raw material costs (primarily wood fiber and resin) were favorable to the prior year by $9 million. During the fourth quarter of 2019, we recognized pre-tax impairment charges of $86 million related to certain operating and non-operating assets.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2020 increased by $279 million to $328 million from $49 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily due to SmartSide revenue growth and higher OSB prices.

Full Year 2020 Highlights

Net sales for full year 2020 increased by $478 million (or 21%) over the prior year to $2.8 billion. SmartSide revenue increased by $118 million (or 15%), and OSB prices increased by $481 million, partially offset by 5% lower sales volume. LP South America revenue was $10 million higher than the prior year, net of $27 million in unfavorable currency movements. EWP net sales were lower by $7 million and the strategic exits from fiber and CanExel products reduced net sales by $65 million and $32 million, respectively.

Net income attributed to LP for the full year 2020 increased by $504 million over the prior year to $499 million ($4.46 per diluted share). In addition to the growth in SmartSide and increased OSB prices, raw material costs (primarily wood fiber and resin) were favorable to the prior year by $32 million. Fiber discontinuance costs of $20 million were recognized during the year. Pre-tax impairment charges of $92 million related to certain operating and non-operating assets were recognized in 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2020 increased $572 million over the prior year to $781 million, due to SmartSide growth, $481 million of OSB pricing, and favorable raw material prices.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, net sales increased by $12 million (or 32%) compared to 2019 due to higher prices and volumes across all products and regions. Adjusted EBITDA increased by $5 million (or 63%) from 2019 net of higher costs for imported resins.

For the full year 2020, net sales increased by $10 million (or 6%) compared to 2019 due to higher prices and volumes across all products and regions, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency changes of $27 million. Adjusted EBITDA increased by $8 million (or 24%) from 2019 due to both higher prices and volumes, partially offset by higher costs for imported raw materials.

Q1 2021 Outlook and 2021 Capital Expenditure Guidance

Our guidance is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, including those set forth below under "Forward-Looking Statements."

  • SmartSide sales in the first quarter of 2021 to be more than 35% higher than the first quarter of 2020.
  • OSB sales in the first quarter of 2021 to be sequentially higher than the fourth quarter of 2020 by more than 15% on similar volumes.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(2) for the first quarter of 2021 to be greater than $380 million.
  • Given our current outlook, we expect capital expenditures for 2021 to be in the range of $220 million to $230 million, including $80 million to $85 million for the Houlton conversion, $30 million to $35 million for other strategic growth projects, $10 million for Peace Valley, and $100 million for sustaining maintenance.

(2) This is a non-GAAP financial measure. With respect to Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2021, certain items that affect net income on a GAAP basis, such as product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, and other non-operating items, that would be required to be included in the comparable forecasted GAAP measures without unreasonable effort. As such, the Company is unable to provide a reasonable estimate of GAAP net income, or a corresponding reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income.

Use of Non-GAAP information

In evaluating our business, we utilize, we disclose non-GAAP financial measures that fall within the meaning of SEC Regulation G and Regulation S-K Item 10(e), which we believe provide users of the financial information with additional meaningful comparison to prior reported results. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized definitions and are not defined by U.S. GAAP. In this press release, we disclose income attributed to LP before interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and exclude stock-based compensation expense, loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, investment income, and other non-operating items as Adjusted EBITDA (Adjusted EBITDA) which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We have included Adjusted EBITDA in this report because we view it as an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe that it is frequently used by interested persons in the evaluation of companies that have different financing and capital structures and/or tax rates. We also disclose income attributed to LP, excluding loss on impairment attributed to LP, product-line discontinuance charges, interest expense outside of normal operations, other operating credits and charges, net, loss on early debt extinguishment, gain (loss) on acquisition, and adjusts for a normalized tax rate as Adjusted Income (Adjusted Income). We also disclose Adjusted Diluted EPS, calculated as Adjusted Income divided by diluted shares outstanding. We believe that Adjusted Diluted EPS and Adjusted Income are useful measures for evaluating our ability to generate earnings and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily compare the earnings for past and future periods.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS are not substitutes for the U.S. GAAP measure of net income or for any other U.S. GAAP measures of operating performance. It should be noted that other companies may present similarly-titled measures differently and therefore, as presented by us, these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS have material limitations as performance measures because they exclude items that are actually incurred or experienced in connection with the operations of our business.

LOUISIANA-PACIFIC CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

The following tables set forth, for each of the last three years: (1) our sales volumes, (2) housing starts and (3) OEE. We consider the following items to be key performance indicators because LP's management uses these metrics to evaluate our business and trends, measure our performance, and make strategic decisions and believes that the key performance indicators presented provide additional perspective and insights when analyzing the core operating performance of LP. These key performance indicators should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with, the U.S. GAAP financial measures presented herein. These measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled performance indicators used by other companies.

We monitor housing starts, which is a leading external indicator of residential construction in the United States that correlates with the demand for many of our products. We believe that this is a useful measure for evaluating our results and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily compare our sales volume for past and future periods to an External indicator of product demand. Other companies may present housing start data differently and therefore, as presented by us, our housing start data may not be comparable to similarly-titled indicators reported by other companies.

1Actual U.S. Housing starts data reported by U.S. Census Bureau is based upon information published through January 21, 2021.

We monitor sales volumes for our products in our Siding, OSB and EWP segments, which we define as the number of units of our products sold within the applicable period. Evaluating sales volume by product type helps us identify and address changes in product demand, broad market factors that may affect our performance, and opportunities for future growth. It should be noted that other companies may present sales volumes differently and, therefore, as presented by us, sales volumes may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that sales volumes can be a useful measure for evaluating and understanding our business. The following table sets forth sales volumes for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019.

We measure OEE of each of our mills to track improvements in the utilization and productivity of our manufacturing assets. OEE is a composite metric that considers asset uptime (adjusted for capital project downtime and similar events), production rates, and finished product quality. It should be noted that other companies may present OEE differently and, therefore, as presented by us, OEE may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. We believe that when used in conjunction with other metrics, OEE can be a useful measure for evaluating our ability to generate profits, and that providing this measure should allow interested persons to more readily monitor operational improvements. OEE for the year  ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, respectively, for each of our segments is listed below:
