Weyerhaeuser Reports Second Quarter Results

- Earnings from continuing operations before special items rise nearly 65 percent compared with first quarter

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE: WY) today reported second quarter net earnings to common shareholders of $280 million, or 47 cents per diluted share, on net sales from continuing operations of $2.0 billion. This compares with net earnings of $196 million, or 35 cents per diluted share, on net sales from continuing operations of $1.9 billion for the same period last year.

Earnings for second quarter 2014 include after-tax earnings of $22 million from discontinued operations. Discontinued operations relate to Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company (WRECO), which was combined with TRI Pointe Homes, Inc. (TRI Pointe) through a Reverse Morris Trust transaction on July 7, 2014. Second quarter results also include net after-tax gains of $24 million from special items, primarily related to a postretirement plan amendment. Excluding discontinued operations and special items, the company reported net earnings of $234 million, or 40 cents per diluted share. This compares with net earnings from continuing operations before special items of $183 million, or 33 cents per diluted share, for second quarter 2013 and $143 million, or 24 cents per diluted share, for first quarter 2014.

"The strong results for each of our businesses in the second quarter reflect our relentless focus on operational excellence," said Doyle Simons, president and chief executive officer. "Through the recent divestiture of our homebuilding business and last year's Longview Timber acquisition, we have created a focused forest products company committed to driving operational improvements and fully capitalizing on the continued measured recovery in U.S. housing markets and the overall economy.

2Q 2014 Performance - Western sales volumes increased due to continued steady demand for domestic and Chinese export logs, partially offset by reduced Japanese demand. Average sales realizations for Western logs declined slightly in domestic and most export markets. Logging and road costs increased seasonally. In the South, slightly higher average log price realizations were partially offset by lower fee harvest volumes due to wet weather. Earnings from disposition of non-strategic timberlands increased by $20 million compared with the first quarter.

3Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser anticipates significantly lower earnings from the Timberlands segment in the third quarter, primarily due to seasonality and lower earnings from disposition of non-strategic timberlands. In the West, the company expects seasonally lower sales volumes and prices for domestic and export logs. In the South, the company anticipates higher silviculture and road costs, largely offset by increased fee harvest volumes.

2Q 2014 Performance - Sales volumes rose seasonally across all product lines, and average selling prices for engineered wood products increased. These improvements were partially offset by lower average realizations for lumber and oriented strand board. Per unit manufacturing costs decreased compared with first quarter due to continued operational improvements and increased production volumes in lumber and engineered wood products. Earnings from engineered wood products improved significantly in the second quarter.

3Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser expects comparable earnings from the Wood Products segment in the third quarter. The company anticipates slightly lower average realizations for lumber and oriented strand board, offset by lower Western log costs and improved price realizations for engineered wood products.

2Q 2014 Performance - Average price realizations for pulp and liquid packaging board improved compared with the first quarter, and sales volumes increased. Mill operating performance was strong, and maintenance costs declined due to fewer scheduled annual outage days.

3Q 2014 Outlook - Weyerhaeuser plans an extended outage at its liquid packaging board facility for scheduled maintenance and capital improvements. The company also expects increased scheduled maintenance outage days within its pulp mill system. As a result, Weyerhaeuser anticipates significantly lower earnings from the Cellulose Fibers segment.

On July 7, 2014, Weyerhaeuser completed the divestiture of WRECO through the combination of WRECO and TRI Pointe in a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. Discontinued Operations includes certain items previously reported in the Real Estate segment and Unallocated Items.

2Q 2014 Performance - Earnings from discontinued operations improved compared with first quarter, primarily due to a seasonal increase in home closings.

3Q 2014 Outlook - Third quarter results will include a net gain of approximately $1 billion on the divestiture of WRECO.

*Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to evaluate the performance of the company. Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is operating income from continuing operations adjusted for depreciation, depletion, amortization, pension and postretirement costs not allocated to business segments (primarily interest cost, expected return on plan assets, amortization of actuarial loss and amortization of prior service cost/credit), special items and discontinued operations. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from and is not intended to represent an alternative to our GAAP results.
