Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. Reports Third-Quarter 2010 Results
Revenue More Than Doubles to a Third-Quarter Record of $1.3 Billion; Net Income Reaches $297 Million, or $2.18 Per Diluted Share
CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLF) (Paris: CLF) today reported third-quarter results for the period ended Sept. 30, 2010. Increased sales volumes and favorable pricing contributed to the Company's record-breaking third-quarter consolidated revenues, operating income, net income, diluted EPS and free cash flow results.
Third-quarter consolidated revenues were $1.3 billion, more than double last year's $666.4 million in the same quarter. Operating income for the third quarter increased to $389.2 million, up 383% from $80.5 million in the comparable 2009 quarter. Net income was $297.4 million, or $2.18 per diluted share, up from $58.8 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2009.
Joseph A. Carrabba, Cliffs' chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, "Our continued strategic efforts to increase our business' exposure to seaborne markets has contributed to another record-breaking quarter. Our iron ore business segments continue to contribute to our significant cash generation momentum. During the quarter, we were also able to strengthen our balance sheet by raising $1 billion in public debt, which we believe is reflective of our swift response to the 2009 downturn followed by a strong performance in 2010, diversification efforts and positive outlook. This solid capital structure not only fortifies our ability to invest in current operations, but also allows us to explore additional strategic transactions and advance current projects in our global portfolio of assets."

Third-quarter 2010 North American Iron Ore pellet sales volume was 7.6 million tons, a 37% increase from the 5.6 million tons sold in the third quarter of 2009. The increase in sales volume is attributed to better demand for iron ore pellets, reflecting North American steel industry capacity utilization of approximately 70% compared with a utilization range of 49% - 59% in the third quarter of 2009. Consistent with the two prior reporting periods in 2010, the successful marketing of additional iron ore pellets available for sale from Cliffs' acquisition of its former partners' interests in Wabush Mines also contributed to the quarter's increase in sales volume over the prior year.
North American Iron Ore revenue per ton was $105.07 during the third quarter, compared with $78.34 in the third quarter of 2009. Per-ton revenues in the quarter were positively impacted by an increase in seaborne iron ore prices and hot band steel prices, both of which are pricing factors in Cliffs' customer supply agreements. In addition to these factors, Cliffs revised its previous estimate for the increase in the seaborne iron ore pellet price from an average increase of 90% to approximately 96% over the 2009 settlement price. As such, an additional $13 million of revenue was recognized in the third quarter for shipments made through the first half of 2010.
Cost per ton in North American Iron Ore was $66.92, up 7% from $62.28 in the year-ago quarter. The increase was driven primarily by higher employment-related costs, royalties and the effect of Cliffs' 100% ownership of Wabush Mines, offset by lower energy-related costs and idle expenses.

North American Coal sales volume increased 185% to 977,000 tons from the 343,000 tons sold in 2009's third quarter. The increase was driven by 457,000 tons of incremental sales volume from the acquisition of INR Energy's coal operations at the end of July and a 52% increase in sales volume from the Company's legacy coal assets. Cliffs' Pinnacle and Oak Grove mines both experienced adverse geological conditions in the third quarter, resulting in lower than expected third-quarter sales and production volumes from these mines.
Revenue per ton increased 22% to $117.64 compared with the third quarter of 2009. Cost per ton declined 4% to $135.87 from $141.69 in the comparable quarter last year. Included in cost per ton is $8 related to Cliffs' acquisition of INR Energy's coal operations and approximately $10 resulting from recent adverse geology encountered at the Pinnacle Mine, which includes the acceleration of depreciation attributed to that mine's legacy longwall machine. Excluding these non-recurring items, cost per ton would have been approximately $117.

Third-quarter 2010 Asia Pacific Iron Ore sales volume was 2.3 million tonnes, a 12% decrease from the sales volume of 2.6 million tonnes in the 2009 comparable quarter. Cliffs noted that sales volume in third quarter of 2009 was higher due to the timing of customer shipments.
Third-quarter revenue per tonne in Asia Pacific Iron Ore more than doubled to $128.09, compared with $62.71 in 2009. The increase was due to higher prices in the seaborne market. Cliffs indicated that pricing mechanisms utilized for a vast majority of its customers in the Asia Pacific Iron Ore business segment have evolved to a mechanism more closely correlated with spot prices versus the quarterly pricing mechanism used in the first half of the year.
Per-tonne cost of goods sold increased 5% to $55.20 in 2010's third quarter from $52.43 in the third quarter of 2009. The increase was primarily driven by unfavorable foreign exchange rates, partially offset by lower transportation and processing costs when compared with the same period in the prior year.

Sonoma Coal and the Amapa Iron Ore Project
In the third quarter of 2010, Cliffs' share of sales volume for its 45% economic interest in Sonoma Coal was 373,000 tonnes. Revenues and sales margin generated for Cliffs' share were $55.8 million and $21.8 million, respectively. Revenue per tonne at Sonoma was $149.60, with costs of $91.18 per tonne.
Cliffs has a 30% ownership interest in the Amapa Iron Ore Project. During the third quarter, Amapa produced a total of approximately 1.1 million tonnes. The project produced equity income of $4.5 million for Cliffs' share.
Capital Structure, Cash Flow and Liquidity
During the quarter and as previously disclosed, Cliffs priced two tranches of 10-year and 30-year senior notes totaling $1 billion. Cliffs used the increased liquidity to repay all of the borrowings outstanding under the Company's credit facility and intends to use the remaining proceeds for other corporate purposes. At Sept. 30, 2010, Cliffs had $969.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, $1.7 billion in long-term debt and no borrowings on its $600 million revolving credit facility. At Dec. 31, 2009, Cliffs had $502.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, $525 million in long-term debt and no borrowings on its credit facility.
Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Cliffs completed the "squeeze-out" transaction to acquire the remaining shares of Spider Resources. Financed with cash on hand, the total cash outflow to acquire Spider Resources is estimated at $120 million.
Depreciation, depletion and amortization in the third quarter was $84.5 million. Year-to-date, Cliffs has generated approximately $631.0 million in cash from operations.
Cliffs expects demand for its products to remain steady for the remainder of 2010 and into 2011. Consistent with the prior quarter, Cliffs' 2010 outlook assumes North American steel utilization rates remain static for the balance of the year. The Company has an optimistic outlook for its businesses based on the global supply and demand fundamentals and believes current prices for its products will remain stable and continue to benefit from growing demand in emerging markets. Changes to fundamentals that impact supply and demand dynamics for steelmaking raw materials, along with changes to the historical annual benchmark pricing mechanism, could have a material effect on the Company's results of operations. Accordingly, the outlook below is subject to change based on these and other factors.
North American Iron Ore Outlook
Cliffs said it is maintaining its 2010 North American Iron Ore sales volume expectation of approximately 27 million tons.
The Company currently has determined pricing mechanisms or final pricing for approximately 60% of its 2010 expected sales volume. The customer supply agreements with final pricing utilize an average iron ore settlement price increase of 96% over the 2009 seaborne price for the factor in the supply agreement that references the historical annual benchmark settlement price. In addition, the Company has market-indicative provisional pricing in place for approximately 10% of the 2010 expected sales volume. The remaining tons are subject to the arbitration process.
Cliffs' North American Iron Ore estimated revenue-per-ton outlook has been adjusted to approximately $98 - $103, from the previous expectation of $107 - $112. This adjustment reflects an increase to the Company's assumption for pellet prices offset by the change in the Company's anticipated timing for the outcome of one of its previously disclosed arbitrations. The Company indicated that the outlook adjustment related to the arbitration does not reflect any change to its assumption regarding its merits and the likelihood that the arbitration will ultimately be settled in Cliffs' favor; rather, it is indicative of the timing delay for when it expects to recognize and collect the additional revenue.
The revenue-per-ton expectation also considers various contract provisions, lag-year adjustments and pricing caps and floors contained in certain supply agreements. Actual realized average revenue per ton for the full year will ultimately depend on the final settlement for the percentage increase for blast furnace pellets from the 2009 seaborne pellet settlement price, sales-volume levels, customer mix, production input costs and/or steel prices (all factors in the Company's formula-based pricing in the North American Iron Ore business segment).
Cliffs expects North American Iron Ore 2010 production of approximately 26 million tons. At this production level, the Company is maintaining its 2010 cost-per-ton expectation of $65 - $70, with approximately $5 per ton comprised of depreciation, depletion and amortization.
In 2011, Cliffs expects to produce and sell approximately 27 million tons from its North American Iron Ore business.
North American Coal Outlook
The Company is reducing its 2010 North American Coal sales and production volume expectation to 3.6 million tons from its prior expectation of 3.9 million tons. The decrease is attributed to continued adverse geological conditions experienced at the Company's legacy mines. The product split is expected to be 500,000 tons of thermal coal and 3.1 million tons of metallurgical coal.
Cliffs continues to expect full-year revenue per ton in North American Coal to be $115 - $120 f.o.b. mine. Due to lower leverage over fixed costs, the Company is increasing its 2010 cost-per-ton expectation to $120 - $125 from the prior expectation of $115 - $120. Costs include non-cash expense of approximately $16 per ton of depreciation, depletion and amortization and $2 per ton related to acquisition accounting adjustments for INR Energy's coal operations.
In 2011, Cliffs expects to produce and sell approximately 6.5 million tons from its North American Coal business, comprised of approximately 5.5 million tons of metallurgical coal and 1.0 million tons of thermal coal.
Asia Pacific Iron Ore Outlook
The Company said it is raising its 2010 Asia Pacific Iron Ore sales and production volume expectations to approximately 9.0 million tonnes. The increase is primarily the result of higher production rates and additional volume from its Cockatoo Island joint venture in Western Australia.
As indicated above, Cliffs has transitioned a vast majority of its Asia Pacific Iron Ore customers to pricing mechanisms that are closely correlated to spot market prices. Considering this and assuming spot prices as of Oct. 15, 2010, for remaining 2010 volumes, Cliffs now expects to achieve higher 2010 revenue per tonne in Asia Pacific Iron Ore of $115 - $120, up from $110 - $115. Costs per tonne are expected to be approximately $55 - $60, unchanged from previous guidance, with approximately $14 per tonne comprised of depreciation, depletion and amortization.
In 2011, Cliffs expects to produce and sell approximately 9.0 million tonnes from its Asia Pacific Iron Ore business.
The following table provides a summary of Cliffs' 2010 guidance for these three business segments:

(1) Assumes a range of hot band steel pricing of $600 - $650 per ton. (2) North American Coal outlook includes the impact from INR Energy's coal operations.
Outlook for Sonoma Coal and the Amapa Iron Ore Project
In 2010, the Company expects its equity sales and production volume at Sonoma Coal to decrease slightly to 1.5 million tonnes from its prior expectation of approximately 1.6 million tonnes. The approximate product mix between thermal and metallurgical coal is expected to be 60%/40%, respectively. As a result of additional metallurgical coal yields and improved pricing expectations, Cliffs increased its average revenue-per-tonne expectation to $120 - $125, up from $110 - $115. Per-tonne costs are still expected to be $80 - $85.
Cliffs expects the Amapa Iron Ore Project to be profitable in 2010.
SG&A Expenses and Other Expectations
SG&A expenses are anticipated to be approximately $200 million in 2010, up from a previous expectation of $180 million. The increased expectation is primarily driven by additional SG&A costs from the acquisition of INR Energy's coal operations, foreign currency exchange rates, employment-related expenses and additional corporate growth initiatives.
Cliffs is increasing its expected range for global exploration expenditures to approximately $30 million to $35 million, from its previous expectation of $25 million to $30 million. In addition, the Company is increasing its expected costs related to its acquired chromite project in Ontario, Canada to $15 million from its previous expectation of $10 million, due to fees incurred for the Spider Resources transaction.
The Company anticipates a full-year tax rate of approximately 30% for 2010. Depreciation and amortization are expected to be approximately $325 million, up from a previous expectation of $300 million. The increase is primarily driven by depreciation and amortization related to the acquisition of INR Energy's coal operations.
2010 Capital Budget Update and Other Uses of Cash
Based on the above guidance, Cliffs expects to generate more than $1.3 billion in cash from operations in 2010. The Company expects capital expenditures of approximately $275 million, up from its previous expectation of $250 million, due to additional capital for expansion at Cliffs' acquired INR coal mines, extending the life of its Empire Mine through 2014 and infrastructure upgrades that will increase capacity in Australia.
Cliffs will host a conference call to discuss its third-quarter 2010 results tomorrow, Oct. 29, 2010, at 10 a.m. ET. The call will be broadcast live on Cliffs' website: www.cliffsnaturalresources.com. A replay of the call will be available on the website for 30 days.
