Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

 

  1. Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings” or the “Company”) through its wholly-owned principal operating subsidiary, Global Brass and Copper, Inc. (“GBC”), is operated and managed through three reportable segments: GBC Metals, LLC (“Olin Brass”), Chase Brass and Copper Company, LLC (“Chase”) and A.J. Oster, LLC (“Oster”).

These unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiaries and its majority-owned subsidiaries in which the Company has a controlling interest. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions relative to wholly- and majority-owned subsidiaries have been eliminated. The equity method is used to account for investments in affiliated companies that are 20% to 50% owned where the Company does not hold a controlling voting interest and does not direct the matters that most significantly impact the investee’s operations.

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include all normal recurring adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to a fair statement of the results for the interim periods presented. The December 31, 2013 consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. In addition, it requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of net sales and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.

Results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of results which may be expected for any other interim period or for the year as a whole. There have been no significant changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2014. These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the December 31, 2013 audited consolidated financial statements of the Company included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Recently Issued and Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties About an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (“ASU 2014-15”). The guidance requires management to perform interim and annual assessments of an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date the financial statements are issued and provides guidance on determining when and how to disclose going concern uncertainties in the financial statements. Certain disclosures will be required if conditions give rise to substantial doubt about an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. ASU 2014-15 applies to all entities and is effective for annual and interim reporting periods ending after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material effect on its financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASU 2014-09”). The guidance provides companies with a single model for use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific revenue guidance. The core principle of the model is that an entity will recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services, as opposed to recognizing revenue when the risks and rewards transfer to the customer under the existing revenue guidance.

The new standard also will result in enhanced disclosures about revenue and provide guidance for transactions that were not previously addressed comprehensively (for example, service revenue and contract modifications). ASU 2014-09 is effective for the first interim period within annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption is not permitted. The guidance permits companies to either apply the requirements retrospectively to all prior periods presented, or apply the requirements in the year of adoption, through a cumulative adjustment. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

 

  2. Inventories

The Company’s inventories were as follows:

 

(in millions)    As of  
     September 30,
2014
     December 31,
2013
     September 30,
2013
 

Raw materials and supplies

   $ 35.2       $ 37.2       $ 34.7   

Work-in-process

     82.8         75.5         99.1   

Finished goods

     98.2         78.2         75.0   
  

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

 

Total inventories

   $ 216.2       $ 190.9       $ 208.8   
  

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

 

Inventories include costs attributable to direct labor and manufacturing overhead, but are primarily comprised of raw material costs. The material component of inventories that is valued on a last-in, first-out (“LIFO”) basis comprised approximately 72%, 70% and 73% of total inventory at September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, respectively. Other manufactured inventories, including the direct labor and manufacturing overhead components and certain non-U.S. inventories, are valued on a first-in, first-out (“FIFO”) basis. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company recorded a lower of cost or market adjustment that reduced inventory by $0.2 million and $0.3 million, respectively. These non-cash adjustments were recorded in cost of sales in the accompanying unaudited consolidated statements of operations for the applicable periods.

If all inventories had been valued at period-end market values, inventories would have been approximately $316.7 million, $318.2 million and $331.2 million at September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, respectively.

Senior Secured Notes

On June 1, 2012, GBC issued, through a private offering, $375.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 (the “Senior Secured Notes”), which are guaranteed by Holdings. The Senior Secured Notes mature on June 1, 2019. Interest on the Senior Secured Notes accrues at the rate of 9.50% per annum and is payable semiannually in arrears on June 1 and December 1.

The credit agreement governing the ABL Facility (hereinafter defined) and the indenture governing the Senior Secured Notes (the “Indenture”) limit the ability of GBC and its subsidiaries to pay dividends or distribute cash to Holdings and to its equityholders, although ordinary course dividends and distributions to meet the limited holding company expenses and related obligations at Holdings of up to $5.0 million per year are permitted under those agreements. Under the terms of the Indenture, GBC is also permitted to pay dividends or distribute to Holdings and its equityholders up to 50% of its “Consolidated Net Income” (as such term is used in the Indenture) from April 1, 2012 to the end of GBC’s most recently ended fiscal quarter. As of September 30, 2014, all of the net assets of the subsidiaries are restricted except for $51.9 million, which are permitted for dividend distributions under the Indenture. As of September 30, 2014, GBC was in compliance with all of its covenants relating to the Senior Secured Notes.

Pursuant to a registration rights agreement, on October 7, 2013, GBC completed an exchange offer to issue registered new notes (with substantially the same terms as the Senior Secured Notes) in exchange for the Senior Secured Notes that GBC issued in 2012 (the “Exchange Offer”).

ABL Facility

Concurrent with the issuance of the Senior Secured Notes in 2012, the Company amended the agreement governing its asset-based revolving loan facility (the “ABL Facility”).

The ABL Facility provides for borrowings up to the lesser of $200.0 million or the borrowing base, in each case, less outstanding loans and letters of credit. Available borrowings under the ABL Facility were $191.0 million, $194.0 million and $177.0 million as of September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, respectively. As of September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, amounts outstanding under the ABL Facility accrued interest at a rate of 4.25%. As of September 30, 2013, amounts outstanding under the ABL Facility accrued interest at a rate of 3.33%. Unused amounts under the ABL Facility incur an unused line fee of 0.50% per annum, payable in full on a quarterly basis.

The ABL Facility has an expiration date of June 1, 2017 and contains various debt covenants to which the Company is subject on an ongoing basis. As of September 30, 2014, the Company was in compliance with all of its covenants under the ABL Facility.

 

  8. Income Taxes

The effective income tax rate, which is the provision for income taxes as a percentage of income before provision for income taxes and equity income, differs from the amount determined by applying the applicable U.S. statutory federal income tax rate to pretax results primarily as a result of the following:

 

     Three Months Ended

     36.3     35.3     36.7     84.8
  

 

 

   

 

 

   

 

 

   

 

 

 

As of September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, the Company had $25.4 million, $26.0 million and $25.8 million, respectively, of unrecognized tax benefits, none of which would impact the effective tax rate, if recognized. Estimated interest and penalties related to the underpayment of income taxes are classified as a component of provision for income taxes. There were no such estimated amounts for the three or nine months ended September 30, 2014 or September 30, 2013. Accrued interest and penalties as of September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013 was $0.1 million. The Company’s liability for uncertain tax positions of $25.5 million, $26.1 million and $25.9 million at September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, respectively, is presented in other noncurrent liabilities in the accompanying unaudited consolidated balance sheets.

The Company’s U.S. federal returns for the period ended December 31, 2011 and all subsequent periods remain open for audit. The majority of state returns for the period ended December 31, 2010 and all subsequent periods remain open for audit.

  9. Derivative Contracts

The Company maintains a metal, natural gas and electricity pricing risk-management strategy that uses commodity derivative contracts to minimize significant, unanticipated gains or losses that may arise from volatility of the commodity indices.

The Company’s metal derivative contracts consist of delivery contracts matched in quantity, price and maturity to firm price sales orders in order to protect sales margins from metal price fluctuations between the firm price sale order date and shipment date.

The prices of natural gas and electricity can be particularly volatile. The Company attempts to mitigate short-term volatility in natural gas and electricity costs through the use of derivatives contracts in an effort to offset the effect of increasing costs.

By using derivative contracts to limit exposures to fluctuations in metal, natural gas and electricity prices, the Company exposes itself to credit risk and market risk. Credit risk is the risk that the counterparty might fail to fulfill its performance obligations under the terms of the derivative contract. Market risk is the risk that the value of a derivative instrument might be adversely affected by a change in commodity price. The Company manages the market risk associated with derivative contracts by establishing and monitoring parameters that limit the types and degree of market risk that may be undertaken.

The Company manages credit risk associated with derivative contracts by only executing derivative instruments with counterparties with investment-grade credit ratings. The amount of such credit risk is limited to the fair value of the derivative contract plus the unpaid portion of amounts due to the Company pursuant to terms of the derivative contracts, if any. If a downgrade in the credit rating of these counterparties occurs, management believes that this exposure is mitigated by provisions in the derivative arrangements which allow for the legal right of offset of any amounts due to the Company from the counterparties with any amounts payable to the counterparties by the Company.

  10. Fair Value Measurements

ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and enhances disclosures about fair value measures required under other accounting pronouncements but does not change existing guidance as to whether or not an instrument is carried at fair value. This guidance also specifies a fair value hierarchy based upon the observability of inputs used in valuation techniques. In accordance with this guidance, fair value measurements are classified under the following hierarchy:

 

    Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

    Level 2 - Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs or significant value-drivers are observable in active markets.

 

    Level 3 - Model-derived valuations in which one or more significant inputs or significant value-drivers are unobservable.

The following tables provide the hierarchy of inputs used to derive the fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013:

In accordance with ASC 820, the Company’s metal, natural gas and electricity commodity derivative contracts are considered Level 2, as fair value measurements consist of both quoted price inputs and inputs provided by a third party that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation. These assumptions include, but are not limited to, those concerning interest rates, credit rates, discount rates, default rates and other factors. All of the Company’s derivative commodity contracts have a set term of 24 months or less.

The Company does not hold assets or liabilities requiring a Level 3 measurement and there have not been any transfers between the hierarchy levels during 2014 or 2013.

For purposes of financial reporting, the Company has determined that the carrying value of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximates fair value due to the short maturities of these instruments. Additionally, given the revolving nature and the variable interest rates, the Company has determined that the carrying value of the ABL Facility also approximates fair value. As of September 30, 2014, December 31, 2013 and September 30, 2013, the fair value of the Company’s Senior Secured Notes approximated $417.2 million, $428.4 million and $415.8 million, respectively. The fair value of the Senior Secured Notes was based upon quotes from financial institutions (Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy as defined by ASC 820).

 

  11. Related Parties

KPS Special Situations Fund II, L.P., KPS Special Situations Fund II (A), L.P., KPS Special Situations Fund III, L.P. and KPS Special Situations Fund III (A), L.P. (together, “KPS Funds”) were majority shareholders of Halkos Holdings, LLC (“Halkos”). As of December 31, 2013, Halkos beneficially owned 34.4% of the outstanding shares of the Company. On February 3, 2014 the Company completed an additional follow-on public offering of 7,310,000 shares of its common stock, including 910,000 shares of common stock sold in connection with the full exercise of the option to purchase additional shares granted to the underwriters (the “Additional Follow-on Public Offering”). Halkos participated as the selling stockholder and after giving effect to the Additional Follow-on Public Offering, Halkos no longer owns any of the outstanding common stock of the Company.

The Company and affiliates of KPS Funds had previously entered into an agreement whereby affiliates of KPS Funds charged the Company for services of their personnel engaged in line or staff functions relating specifically to the operations of the Company (the “Management Services Agreement”). In May 2013, in connection with the initial public offering of 8,050,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the “IPO”), the Company terminated the Management Services Agreement prior to the expiration of its initial term and was required to pay the affiliates of KPS Funds an early termination fee equal to the value of the advisory fee that would have otherwise been payable to the affiliates of KPS Funds through the end of the term of the Management Services Agreement. The Company paid $4.5 million to the affiliates of KPS Funds related to the Company’s early termination representing all unpaid management advisory fees. The total charges, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses, were $4.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. As the Management Services Agreement was terminated in May 2013, there were no additional management advisory fees for the three months ended September 30, 2013 or the three or nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Additionally, pursuant to the Management Services Agreement, the Company was required to reimburse the affiliates of KPS Funds for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred in connection with the services provided. These costs were inconsequential for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively.

Pursuant to an amendment to the investor rights agreement, dated as of November 22, 2013, Halkos agreed to pay, subject to certain exceptions and qualifications, 50% of the registration expenses (as defined in the investor rights agreement) relating to the Additional Follow-on Public Offering. As of December 31, 2013, the Company had recorded a receivable of $0.2 million in prepaid expenses and other current assets in the consolidated balance sheet. During the first quarter of 2014, Halkos reimbursed the Company all amounts owed for registration expenses relating to the Additional Follow-on Public Offering.

  12. Commitments and Contingencies

Environmental Considerations

The Company is subject to a variety of environmental laws and regulations governing discharges to air and water, the handling, storage and disposal of hazardous or solid waste materials and the remediation of contamination associated with releases of hazardous substances. Although the Company believes it is in material compliance with all of the various regulations applicable to its business, there can be no assurance that requirements will not change in the future or that the Company will not incur significant costs to comply with such requirements. The Company employs responsible personnel at each facility, along with various environmental engineering consultants from time to time to assist with ongoing management of environmental, health and safety requirements. Management expenses environmental costs related to existing conditions resulting from past or current operations and from which no current or future benefit is discernible. Expenditures that extend the life of the related property are capitalized. The Company determines its liability on a location by location basis and records a liability at the time it is deemed probable and can be reasonably estimated. The Company is currently not aware of any environmental matters which may have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations, or liquidity.

On November 19, 2007 (the date of inception of GBC), the Company acquired the assets and operations relating to the worldwide metals business of Olin Corporation. Olin Corporation agreed to retain liability arising out of the existing conditions on certain of our properties for any remedial actions required by environmental laws, and agreed to indemnify the Company for all or part of a number of other environmental liabilities. Since 2007, Olin Corporation has been performing remedial actions at the facilities in East Alton, Illinois and Waterbury, Connecticut, and has been participating in remedial actions at certain other properties as well. If Olin Corporation were to stop its environmental remedial activities at the Company’s properties, the Company could be required to assume responsibility for these activities, the cost of which could be material.

Insurance Coverage

The Company maintains Comprehensive Medical Plans for employees of GBC and its subsidiaries (the “Plans”) to provide health insurance for eligible employees on a self-insured basis. The Plans are covered by a stop loss policy for those benefits provided on a self-insured basis with a deductible of $0.3 million per participant for all GBC employees, except for employees of our Chase division, which has a deductible of $0.1 million per participant. The policy for our Chase division also has a specific stop loss maximum resulting in the Company being responsible for paying the amount in excess of $2.0 million per participant.

The Company is self-insured for workers’ compensation claims assumed from its predecessor company for activity prior to November 19, 2007. Workers’ compensation claims relating to activity after November 19, 2007 are covered by a loss funding insurance arrangement whereby the Company makes a fixed payment to the insurer which is used to pay submitted claims. The Company is self-insured for annual workers’ compensation costs relating to activity after November 19, 2007 of up to $0.5 million per occurrence.

Legal Considerations

The Company is party to various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company believes that none of its lawsuits are individually material or that the aggregate exposure of all of its lawsuits, including those that are probable and those that are only reasonably possible, is material to its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

  13. Segment Information

The Company’s Chief Operating Decision Maker allocates resources and evaluates performance at the divisional level. As such, the Company has determined that it has three reportable segments: Olin Brass, Chase and Oster.

Olin Brass is a leading manufacturer and converter of copper and brass sheet, strip and fabricated products. Olin Brass also rerolls and forms other alloys such as stainless. Olin Brass’s products are used in five primary end markets: building and housing, munitions, automotive, coinage, and electronics/electrical components.

Chase is a leading manufacturer of brass rod in North America. Chase primarily manufactures brass rod, including round and other shapes, ranging from 1/4 inch to 4.5 inches in diameter. The key attributes of brass rod include its machinability, corrosion resistance and moderate strength, making it especially suitable for forging and machining products such as valves and fittings. Brass rod is generally manufactured from copper or copper-alloy scrap. Chase produces brass rod used in production applications which can be grouped into four primary end markets: building and housing, transportation, electronics/electrical components and industrial machinery and equipment.

Oster is a processing distributor of copper, copper-alloy, aluminum and stainless steel sheet, strip and foil. Oster operates six strategically-located service centers in the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Each Oster service center reliably provides a broad range of high quality products at quick lead-times in small quantities. These capabilities, combined with Oster’s operations of precision slitting, hot tinning, traverse winding, cutting, edging and special packaging, provide value to a broad customer base. Oster’s products are used in three primary end markets: building and housing, automotive and electronics/electrical components.

Corporate and Other includes compensation for corporate executives and officers, corporate office and administrative salaries, and professional fees for accounting, tax and legal services. Corporate and Other also includes interest expense, state and Federal income taxes, overhead costs that management has not allocated to our operating segments and the elimination of intercompany balances.

The Chief Operating Decision Maker evaluates performance and determines resource allocations based on a number of factors, the primary performance measure being Adjusted EBITDA. The Chief Operating Decision Maker is not provided with, nor reviews, assets by segment for purposes of allocating resources.

Adjusted EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses on derivative contracts in support of our balanced book approach, unrealized gains and losses associated with derivative contracts related to electricity and natural gas costs, non-cash losses due to lower of cost or market adjustments to inventory, LIFO-based gains and losses due to the depletion of a LIFO layer of metal inventory, non-cash profits interest compensation expense related to payments made to certain members of our management by Halkos, share-based compensation expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash income accretion related to the Dowa Joint Venture, management fees paid to affiliates of KPS Capital Partners, L.P. (“KPS”), restructuring and other business transformation charges, specified legal and professional expenses and certain other items, each of which are excluded because management believes they are not indicative of the ongoing performance of the Company’s core operations.

(h) Restructuring and other business transformation charges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 represent severance charges at Olin Brass.

 

  14. Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per share is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and diluted earnings per share is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding adjusted by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding had potentially dilutive common shares been issued. Potentially dilutive securities include stock options and nonvested share awards. Nonvested performance-based share awards are included in the average diluted shares outstanding for each period if established performance criteria have been met at the end of the respective periods.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to the Company:

Diluted

   $ 0.48       $ 0.47       $ 1.36       $ 0.20   

The computation of weighted-average common shares outstanding, assuming dilution, for the periods presented, includes the average common shares outstanding that would result from the assumed exercise of outstanding stock options and vesting of restricted stock awards and vesting of the portion of performance-based shares for which the established performance criterion has been met. Weighted-average common shares outstanding, assuming dilution, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 excludes stock options to purchase 147,136 shares because they were anti-dilutive. Weighted-average common shares outstanding, assuming dilution, for the three months ended September 30, 2014 excludes 3,604 restricted stock awards because they were anti-dilutive. Weighted-average common shares outstanding, assuming dilution, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 excludes stock options to purchase 3,451 shares because they were anti-dilutive.

  15. Condensed Consolidating Financial Information

In June 2012, Holdings (presented as “Parent” in the following tables), through its wholly-owned principal operating subsidiary, GBC (presented as “Issuer” in the following tables), issued Senior Secured Notes as further described in note 7, “Financing”. The Senior Secured Notes are jointly and severally guaranteed on a senior secured basis by Holdings and substantially all existing 100%-owned U.S. subsidiaries of GBC and any future restricted subsidiaries who guarantee or incur certain types of Permitted Debt, as such term is defined under the Indenture (individually, a “Guarantor” and collectively, the “Guarantors”). The guarantees are full and unconditional, except that a Guarantor can be automatically released and relieved of its obligations under certain customary provisions contained in the Indenture. Under these customary provisions, a Guarantor is automatically released from its obligations as a guarantor upon the sale of the Guarantor or substantially all of its assets to a third party, the designation of the Guarantor as an unrestricted subsidiary in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, the release or discharge of all guarantees by such Guarantor and the repayment of all indebtedness, or upon the Issuer’s exercise of its legal defeasance option or covenant defeasance option or if the obligations under the Indenture are discharged in accordance with the terms of the Indenture. All other subsidiaries of GBC, whether direct or indirect, do not guarantee the Senior Secured Notes (collectively, the “Non-Guarantors”).

Holdings is also a guarantor of the ABL Facility and substantially all of its 100%-owned U.S. subsidiaries are borrowers under, or guarantors of, the ABL Facility on a senior secured basis.

The following condensed consolidating financial information presents the financial position, results of operations, comprehensive income and cash flows of (1) the Parent, (2) the Issuer, (3) the Guarantors, (4) the Non-Guarantors and (5) eliminations to arrive at the information for the Company on a consolidated basis. The condensed consolidating financial information presented below is not necessarily indicative of the financial position, results of operations, comprehensive income or cash flows of the Parent, the Issuer, the Guarantors or the Non-Guarantors on a stand-alone basis.

The Company identified an immaterial error in the previously issued condensed consolidating statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 related to the settlement of an advance between the Issuer and the Parent and has revised the presentation in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The Company has corrected the error by reclassifying a cash inflow of $4.9 million for the Issuer from cash flows from operating activities to cash flows from investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The revision had no impact to any other condensed consolidating financial statement, nor did it impact any of the Company’s unaudited consolidated financial statements contained herein.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This report contains “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties. You can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as “believes,” “expects,” “projects,” “may,” “would,” “should,” “seeks,” “approximately,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates” or similar expressions that relate to our strategy, plans or intentions. All statements we make relating to our estimated and projected earnings, margins, costs, expenditures, cash flows, growth rates and financial results or to our expectations regarding future industry trends are forward-looking statements. In addition, we, through our senior management, from time to time make or may make forward-looking public statements concerning our expected future operations and performance and other developments. These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may change at any time, and, therefore, our actual results may differ materially from those that we expected. We derive many of our forward-looking statements from our operating budgets and forecasts, which are based upon many detailed assumptions.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. In addition to historical data, this discussion contains forward-looking statements about our business, operations and financial performance based on current expectations that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to those discussed in the section entitled “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements” included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Overview

Our Business

Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc. (“Holdings” or the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) was incorporated in Delaware on October 10, 2007. Holdings, through its wholly-owned principal operating subsidiary, Global Brass and Copper, Inc. (“GBC”), commenced commercial operations on November 19, 2007 through the acquisition of the metals business from Olin Corporation. Holdings, through GBC, is operated and managed through three reportable segments: GBC Metals, LLC (“Olin Brass”), Chase Brass and Copper Company, LLC (“Chase”) and A.J. Oster, LLC (“Oster”). We also have a Corporate and Other segment, which includes certain administrative costs and expenses that management has not allocated to our operating segments and the elimination of intercompany balances.

We are a leading value-added converter, fabricator, distributor and processor of specialized copper and brass products in North America. We offer a broad range of products, and we sell our products to multiple distinct end markets including the building and housing, munitions, automotive, transportation, coinage, electronics/electrical components, industrial machinery and equipment and general consumer end markets. Unlike other metals companies, including those who may engage in mining, smelting and refining activities, we are purely a metal converter, fabricator, distributor and processor and do not attempt to generate profits from fluctuations in metal prices. We engage in melting and casting, rolling, drawing, extruding, welding and stamping to manufacture finished and semi-finished alloy products from processed scrap, copper cathode and other refined metals. We participate in two distinct segments of the fabrication value chain: (1) sheet, strip, foil, tube and plate and (2) alloy rod.

Our leading market positions in each of our operating segments support our operating margins. Our operating margins are a function of four key characteristics of our business: (1) we earn a premium margin over the cost of metal because of our value-added processing capabilities, patent-protected technologies, and first-class service; (2) we have strategically shifted our product portfolio toward value-added, higher margin products; (3) we are driving a lean cost structure through fixed and variable cost reductions, process improvements, and workforce flexibility initiatives; and (4) we employ our balanced book approach to substantially reduce the financial impact of metal price volatility on our earnings and operating margins.

For a discussion of Key Factors Affecting our Results of Operations, including the balanced book approach, refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 19, 2014.

Recent Transactions

Additional Follow-on Public Offering

On February 3, 2014 the Company completed an additional follow-on public offering (“Additional Follow-on Public Offering”) of 7,310,000 shares of its common stock, including 910,000 shares of common stock sold in connection with the full exercise of the option to purchase additional shares granted to the underwriters. Halkos Holdings, LLC (“Halkos”), the beneficial owner of approximately 34.4% of the Company prior to the Additional Follow-on Public Offering, sold all of its shares and received all of the net proceeds from the offering as the sole selling stockholder. After giving effect to the Additional Follow-on Public Offering, Halkos no longer owns any of our outstanding common stock.

In 2013, the Company completed two public offerings, as described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 19, 2014.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), we have provided “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Adjusted sales”, which are non-GAAP financial measures and are defined below.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) adjusted to exclude unrealized gains and losses on derivative contracts in support of our balanced book approach, unrealized gains and losses associated with derivative contracts related to electricity and natural gas costs, non-cash losses due to lower of cost or market adjustments to inventory, LIFO-based gains and losses due to the depletion of a LIFO layer of metal inventory, non-cash profits interest compensation expense related to payments made to certain members of our management by Halkos, share-based compensation expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, non-cash income accretion related to Dowa-Olin Metal Corporation (the “Dowa Joint Venture”), management fees paid to affiliates of KPS Capital Partners, L.P. (“KPS”), restructuring and other business transformation charges, specified legal and professional expenses and certain other items.

We present the above-described Adjusted EBITDA because we consider it an important supplemental measure and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Nevertheless, our Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance because we believe it represents a meaningful presentation of the financial performance of our core operations, without the impact of the various items excluded, in order to provide period-to-period comparisons that are more consistent and more easily understood. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA per pound in order to measure the effectiveness of the balanced book approach in reducing the financial impact of metal price volatility on earnings and operating margins, and to measure the effectiveness of our business transformation initiatives in improving earnings and operating margins. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is the key metric used by our Chief Operating Decision Maker to evaluate the business performance of our segments in comparison to budgets, forecasts and prior-year financial results, providing a measure that management believes reflects our core operating performance. Measures similar to Adjusted EBITDA, namely “EBITDA” and “Adjusted EBITDA”, are defined and used in the agreements governing our asset-based revolving loan facility (the “ABL Facility”) and our 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) to determine compliance with various financial covenants and tests.

Table of Contents

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations include that Adjusted EBITDA:

 

    does not reflect every expenditure, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

 

    does not reflect the significant interest expense or the amounts necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt;

 

    does not reflect income tax expense, and because the payment of taxes is part of our operations, tax expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to operate;

 

    eliminates depreciation and amortization in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, however the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced or require improvements in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any costs of such replacements or improvements;

 

    does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations;

 

    does not reflect limitations on our costs related to transferring earnings from our subsidiaries to us; and

 

    may be calculated by other companies in our industry differently from the way we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

We compensate for these limitations by using Adjusted EBITDA along with other comparative tools, together with U.S. GAAP measurements, to assist in the evaluation of operating performance. Such U.S. GAAP measurements include operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flows from operations and other cash flow data. We have significant uses of cash, including capital expenditures, interest payments, debt principal repayments, taxes and other non-recurring charges, which are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted EBITDA is not intended as an alternative to net income (loss), as an indicator of our operating performance, as an alternative to any other measure of performance in conformity with U.S. GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow provided by (used in) operating activities as a measure of liquidity. You should therefore not place undue reliance on Adjusted EBITDA or ratios calculated using Adjusted EBITDA. Our U.S. GAAP-based measures can be found in our unaudited consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto included elsewhere in this report.

Adjusted sales

Adjusted sales is defined as net sales less the metal component of net sales. Net sales is the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure to adjusted sales. Adjusted sales represents the value-added premium we earn over our conversion and fabrication costs. Management uses adjusted sales on a consolidated basis to monitor the revenues that are generated from our value-added conversion and fabrication processes excluding the effects of fluctuations in metal costs. We believe that adjusted sales supplements our U.S. GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the results of our business, and we believe it is useful to our investors and other parties for these same reasons. Adjusted sales may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies and is not a measure of operating performance or liquidity defined by U.S. GAAP.

Net sales

Net sales decreased by $2.4 million, or 0.5%, from $439.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $436.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Net sales decreased by $4.3 million due to lower sales of unprocessed metals, $2.1 million resulting from the net effect of the shift in product mix and increases in average selling prices and $0.4 million due to lower metal prices in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. These decreases were partially offset by the effect of changes in volume by segment, which increased net sales by $4.4 million. Metal prices reflect the replacement cost recovery from the customer, whereas the sales prices represent the pricing component of adjusted sales, which we define as the excess of net sales over the metal cost recovery component of net sales.

Volume decreased by 0.2 million pounds, or 0.2%, from 132.0 million pounds for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to 131.8 million pounds for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The decrease in volume was primarily attributable to lower demand in the munitions end market as well as the electronics/electrical components end market. The lower demand in the munitions end market was due to the reduction in demand following an unprecedented peak in demand for the last several quarters. The lower demand in the electronics/electrical components end market resulted primarily from a customer sourcing their finished products offshore, which negatively impacted demand for brass rod in this end market. The decrease in volume was partially offset by higher demand in the building and housing, automotive and transportation end markets.

Table of Contents

The metal cost recovery component of net sales increased by $0.6 million, or 0.2%, from $299.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $300.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The effect of changes in volume by segment increased the cost recovery component of net sales by $5.3 million. Lower sales of unprocessed metal and lower metal prices decreased the metal cost recovery component of net sales by $4.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively, in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013.

Adjusted sales

Adjusted sales, which is the excess of net sales over the metal cost recovery component of net sales, decreased by $3.0 million, or 2.1%, from $139.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $136.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Lower volume decreased adjusted sales by $0.9 million in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period of 2013. Additionally, adjusted sales decreased by $2.1 million resulting from the net effect of the shift in product mix and increases in average selling prices. Adjusted sales per pound declined in the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the same period in 2013, which was the net effect of the shift in product mix and increases in average selling prices.

Adjusted sales is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “—Non-GAAP Measures—Adjusted sales”. The following table presents a reconciliation of net sales to Adjusted sales and net sales per pound to Adjusted sales per pound:

Gross profit

Gross profit decreased by $0.7 million, or 1.5%, from $45.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $44.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. Gross profit per pound shipped remained relatively flat at $0.34 for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period of 2013.

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2014 included a gain of $0.1 million related to net unrealized gains on derivative contracts. Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2013 included a loss of $1.0 million related to net unrealized losses on derivative contracts.

 

38


Table of Contents

Depreciation expense included in gross profit increased from $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase is attributable to an increase in our depreciable asset base from September 30, 2013 to September 30, 2014.

Other factors decreased gross profit by $0.9 million in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. Gross profit decreased by $2.1 million resulting from the net effect of the shift in product mix and increases in average selling prices. Partially offsetting this decrease were the effect of changes in volume by segment, which increased gross profit by $0.7 million, and lower manufacturing conversion costs of $0.5 million.

Selling, general and administrative expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $1.3 million, or 6.5%, from $20.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $18.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014.

We incurred professional fees for accounting, tax, legal and consulting services related to costs incurred as a publicly traded company of $1.1 million during the three months ended September 30, 2014. We incurred professional fees for accounting, tax, legal and consulting services related to costs incurred as a publicly traded company, including follow-on offering costs and costs associated with our registered “A/B exchange offer” with respect to our Senior Secured Notes (“Exchange Offer”) of $1.4 million during the three months ended September 30, 2013. Additionally, for the three months ended September 30, 2014, we decreased our share-based compensation accrual by $0.3 million, primarily resulting from management’s assessment of the probability that the established performance criteria will not be achieved relative to performance-based shares. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, we recognized $0.8 million in share-based compensation expense.

In the three months ended September 30, 2014, we incurred restructuring and other business transformation charges of $0.3 million related to severance charges at Olin Brass.

Depreciation expense included in selling, general and administrative expenses increased from $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase is attributable to an increase in our depreciable asset base from September 30, 2013 to September 30, 2014.

Other factors contributed $0.7 million to the decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the same period in 2013. Salaries, benefits and incentive compensation decreased by $0.5 million, other miscellaneous selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.5 million, partially offset by an increase in outside services of $0.3 million.

Provision for income taxes

The provision for income taxes was $5.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $5.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013. The change in the provision for income taxes was due to higher taxable income in the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Net income attributable to Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc.

Net income attributable to Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc. increased from $9.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $10.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014 mainly due to a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by a decrease in gross profit and an increase in the provision for income taxes, which are described above.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $0.1 million, or 0.3%, from $30.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 to $30.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The decrease was due to the net effect of the shift in product mix and increases in average selling prices of $2.1 million and an increase in outside services of $0.3 million. Partially offsetting these decreases were lower manufacturing conversion costs of $0.5 million, the effect of changes in volume by segment, which increased gross profit by $0.7 million, lower salaries, benefits and incentive compensation of $0.5 million, a decline of $0.5 million in other miscellaneous selling, general and administrative expenses and a decrease in other expenses of $0.1 million.
