Shipments of primary aluminum for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 increased 5 percent sequentially, driven primarily by the restart project at Mt. Holly. Net sales for the first quarter of 2022 increased by 14 percent sequentially due to volume and higher aluminum prices.

Century reported net income of $17.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, a $42.7 million decrease sequentially. First quarter results were negatively impacted by $42.3 million of net exceptional items, in particular $39.0 million of unrealized losses on derivative instruments and $3.3 million in share-based compensation costs. Thus, Century reported an adjusted net income of $60.7 million for the first quarter of 2022, a $43.5 million improvement sequentially.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2022 was $105.5 million. This was an increase of $23.3 million from the prior quarter primarily driven by higher prices of primary aluminum and volume, partially offset by higher raw material costs.

Century’s liquidity position at quarter end was $154.3 million, an increase of $54.8 million from the prior quarter.

“We are pleased to report these excellent results for the first quarter,” commented President and Chief Executive Officer Jesse Gary. “Our investments towards restarting production at Hawesville and Mt. Holly, combined with the hard work of our employees, have put us in a great position to benefit from the market conditions that we are experiencing today.

“Demand remains strong in our core markets in the U.S. and Europe and inventories have been drawn down to post-financial crisis lows. While we continue to see inflationary pressure in energy markets and other key raw materials, our focus on cost discipline and execution leaves us well situated to benefit from historically high aluminum prices.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to evaluate Century’s financial performance.  These non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons of this period’s results with prior periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that management does not believe are indicative of Century’s ongoing operating performance and ability to generate cash.  Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures enhance an overall understanding of Century’s performance and our investors’ ability to review Century’s business from the same perspective as management.  The tables below, under the heading “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” provide a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.  Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, Century’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, because not all companies use identical calculations, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA included in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations in conjunction with the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures.
