Cash provided by operating activities was $29.2 million versus $70.9 million in the prior year period. Cash available for distribution (CAD)3 of $27.2 million decreased $35.0 million versus the prior year period primarily due to lower Adjusted EBITDA3 ($31.9 million), higher capital expenditures ($3.1 million) and higher cash interest paid ($0.5 million), partially offset by lower cash taxes paid ($0.4 million).

“The differential magnitude and timing of COVID-19 related headwinds across our segments translated into a choppy start to the year,” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “In the U.S., the forest products industry has been designated by the federal government as an essential critical infrastructure industry, and we have therefore continued to operate, although end markets have been affected. In New Zealand, the pandemic began disrupting export markets in January, and in late March, the N.Z. government instituted lockdown measures on all non-essential businesses, including forestry. On April 28th, New Zealand ended these lockdown measures, and our operations are currently in the process of being reopened on a phased basis.”

“Overall, I’m pleased with how our team navigated the various challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic to deliver strong operational results in our timber segments during the first quarter,” continued Nunes. “Southern Timber segment Adjusted EBITDA declined 19% relative to an extraordinarily strong first quarter 2019 but was generally in-line with our expectations and well above the prior three quarters, driven by continued strong pulpwood demand. In Pacific Northwest Timber, Adjusted EBITDA improved significantly versus the prior year quarter as results were bolstered by targeted lump-sum sales and increased delivered log volume to meet improved domestic demand. New Zealand Timber Adjusted EBITDA declined 54% versus the prior year quarter amid deteriorating market conditions caused by COVID-19, which resulted in a 20% reduction in harvest volumes and declines in export and domestic sawtimber prices of 18% and 16%, respectively, versus the prior year period. As anticipated, Real Estate sales activity in the first quarter was very limited, although average price realizations remained strong.”

“We also recently completed several portfolio management and financing initiatives in anticipation of closing the Pope Resources transaction. On March 30th, our Real Estate segment closed a Large Disposition consisting of approximately 67,000 acres in Mississippi for $116.0 million. Following quarter-end, we closed a series of debt financing transactions, which extended certain maturities, increased the size of our revolving credit facility, and raised $250 million of additional funded term debt. These actions further bolstered our liquidity position and completed the financing required for the Pope transaction, which we expect to close on May 8th.”

Southern Timber

First quarter sales of $53.0 million decreased $7.8 million, or 13%, versus the prior year period primarily due to lower net stumpage prices, lower volumes and lower pipeline easement revenue. Harvest volumes decreased 5% to 1.84 million tons versus 1.94 million tons in the prior year period. Average pine sawtimber stumpage prices increased 1% to $26.67 per ton versus $26.38 per ton in the prior year period due to geographic mix. Average pine pulpwood stumpage prices decreased 11% to $16.05 per ton versus $17.94 per ton in the prior year period primarily due to an increase in available log supply resulting from drier ground conditions in the current quarter versus the prior year period. Overall, weighted-average stumpage prices (including hardwood) decreased 5% to $19.91 per ton versus $21.03 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $15.1 million decreased $6.4 million versus the prior year period as lower non-timber income ($4.3 million), lower net stumpage prices ($2.1 million), lower volumes ($0.9 million) and higher indirect and overhead expenses ($0.5 million) were partially offset by lower lease-related expenses ($0.8 million) and lower depletion rates ($0.6 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $33.3 million was $7.9 million below the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

First quarter sales of $31.1 million increased $10.6 million, or 51%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes increased 68% to 476,000 tons versus 283,000 tons in the prior year period due to a significant increase in lump-sum stumpage sales and higher delivered volumes to meet improved market demand. Average delivered sawtimber prices decreased 4% to $75.40 per ton versus $78.47 per ton in the prior year period due to a higher mix of chip-n-saw volume in the current quarter coupled with reduced demand as the COVID-19 pandemic led to production curtailments at many domestic sawmills toward the end of the quarter. However, the announcement of temporary relief from tariffs in China coupled with reduced exports from Europe and New Zealand led to increasing China demand for export logs toward the end of the quarter. Average delivered pulpwood prices decreased 16% to $38.11 per ton versus $45.15 per ton in the prior year period, driven primarily by excess chip supply in the market. Operating loss of $0.9 million decreased $2.8 million versus the prior year period as higher net stumpage prices ($2.8 million), lower depletion rates ($0.7 million) and higher non-timber income ($0.1 million) were partially offset by higher overhead costs ($0.4 million) and an increase in other variable costs ($0.4 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $9.8 million was $6.7 million above the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

First quarter sales of $37.5 million decreased $19.6 million, or 34%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes decreased 20% to 481,000 tons versus 604,000 tons in the prior year period, as the COVID-19 pandemic began disrupting export markets in January and ultimately resulted in a government-mandated shutdown of all non-essential activity (including the harvesting and transport of logs) in New Zealand by late March. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber decreased 18% to $94.86 per ton versus $116.24 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber decreased 16% to $69.97 per ton versus $83.42 per ton in the prior year period. The decrease in export sawtimber prices was driven primarily by lower demand and challenging freight logistics resulting from the COVID-19 lockdown in China. The decrease in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven in part by the fall in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$0.65 per NZ$1.00 versus US$0.68 per NZ$1.00). Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, domestic sawtimber prices decreased 12% versus the prior year period, generally following the negative trend in the export market. Operating income of $5.4 million decreased $10.3 million versus the prior year period as a result of lower net stumpage prices ($7.4 million), lower volumes ($4.0 million), higher roading costs ($0.5 million), lower non-timber income ($0.4 million) and higher overhead costs ($0.2 million), partially offset by favorable foreign exchange impacts ($2.1 million) and lower depreciation and software amortization expenses ($0.1 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $10.2 million was $11.8 million below the prior year period.

Real Estate

First quarter sales of $118.5 million increased $97.5 million versus the prior year period, while operating income of $26.8 million increased $16.7 million versus the prior year period. First quarter sales and operating income included $116.0 million and $28.7 million, respectively, from Large Dispositions.1 Excluding this item, pro forma sales3 were $2.5 million, while pro forma operating loss3 was $1.9 million due to fewer acres sold (624 acres sold versus 5,679 acres sold in the prior year period), partially offset by an increase in weighted-average prices ($3,842 per acre versus $3,687 per acre in the prior year period).

There were no Improved Development sales in the first quarter. This compares to prior year period sales of $0.3 million, which consisted of eight residential lots ($42,688 per lot or $292,000 per acre) in the Wildlight development project north of Jacksonville, Florida.

There were no Unimproved Development sales in the first quarter. This compares to prior year period sales of $1.0 million, which consisted of a seven-acre tract in Bryan County, Georgia for $145,773 per acre.

Rural sales of $2.4 million consisted of 624 acres at an average price of $3,842 per acre. This compares to prior year period sales of $12.7 million, which consisted of 3,338 acres at an average price of $3,794 per acre.

There were no Timberland and Non-Strategic sales in the first quarter. This compares to prior year period sales of $6.9 million, which consisted of 2,333 acres at an average price of $2,972 per acre.

Large Disposition1 sales of $116.0 million were comprised of 66,946 acres in Mississippi at an average price of $1,733 per acre.

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of ($1.1) million was $18.5 million below the prior year period.

Trading

First quarter sales of $19.0 million decreased $13.1 million versus the prior year period due to lower volumes and prices resulting from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on key export markets. Sales volumes decreased 26% to 207,000 tons versus 282,000 tons in the prior year period. The Trading segment generated breakeven results versus operating income of $0.5 million in the prior year period.

Other Items

First quarter corporate and other operating expenses of $7.8 million increased $2.3 million versus the prior year period, primarily due to costs related to the Pope Resources merger ($2.5 million), partially offset by lower overhead costs ($0.2 million).

First quarter interest expense of $8.3 million increased $0.5 million versus the prior year period due to higher outstanding debt.

First quarter income tax expense of $3.7 million decreased $0.6 million versus the prior year period as a result of lower taxable income. The New Zealand subsidiary is the primary driver of income tax expense.

Share Repurchases

During the first quarter, the Company repurchased $3.2 million of common shares at an average price of $20.71 per share. As of March 31, 2020, the Company had 129.2 million common shares outstanding and $87.7 million remaining on its current share repurchase authorization.

Pope Resources Merger & Financing Update

On April 6, 2020, Rayonier and Pope Resources filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) a definitive proxy statement/prospectus for the Pope Resources merger transaction. Pope Resources mailed this document to its unitholders for a special meeting on May 5, 2020 to approve the merger. Pending a successful vote of Pope Resources unitholders and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions, the merger transaction is scheduled to close on May 8, 2020. For more information on the Pope Resources merger transaction, see the definitive proxy statement/prospectus.

During the month of April, Rayonier also executed a series of transactions to, among other things, (1) increase the size of its revolving credit facility to $300 million and extend the maturity of the facility to April 2025, (2) extend the maturity of its existing $350 million incremental term loan to April 2028, and (3) enter into a new incremental term loan in the amount of $250 million with a maturity date of April 2025. In addition, Rayonier completed a Large Disposition consisting of approximately 67,000 acres in Mississippi for $116 million on March 30, 2020. With the closing of these transactions, Rayonier has ample liquidity to fund the cash portion of the Pope Resources merger consideration, refinance Pope’s existing debt, as needed, and pay fees and expenses associated with the transaction. For more information on these transactions, see our Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on April 2, 2020 and April 17, 2020.

COVID-19 Response & Revised 2020 Outlook

“At Rayonier, our first priority is the health and safety of our employees and contractors,” stated Nunes. “We are currently working hard to balance this priority with the designation of the U.S. forest products industry as an essential critical infrastructure industry in order to keep our business running while observing the necessary social distancing and safety protocols to mitigate the further spread of COVID-19. To this end, we have implemented a work-from-home model for office employees and instituted enhanced safety guidelines for field employees. Overall, we believe that these arrangements are working well and are allowing our company and industry to continue to supply essential forest products in the U.S. while optimizing workplace safety. In New Zealand, we are currently in the process of restarting operations following the government-mandated lockdown, while employing similar safety procedures.”

“Nevertheless, we expect that market conditions over the next several quarters will continue to be very challenging and volatile as governments and industries seek to cope with the far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the significant slowdown of construction and overall economic activity. Due to the continuously evolving conditions created by COVID-19, we are updating our prior 2020 financial guidance based on our current outlook for the balance of the year. We now anticipate full-year net income attributable to Rayonier of $33 to $46 million, pro forma net income of $7 to $20 million, EPS of $0.26 to $0.36, pro forma EPS of $0.05 to $0.15 and Adjusted EBITDA of $200 to $230 million, excluding the impact of the Pope Resources merger.”

“In our Southern Timber segment, we expect lower full-year harvest volumes of 5.7 to 6.0 million tons due to the disposition of 67,000 acres in Mississippi as well as the reduction of harvest volumes in certain markets impacted by weaker demand. We further expect that Southern Timber pricing will be relatively flat versus 2019 average pricing as continued strong pulpwood demand, favorable geographic mix and increased export demand generally offset weaker domestic sawtimber demand. In our Pacific Northwest Timber segment, we expect full-year harvest volumes of 1.3 to 1.4 million tons based on our strong start to the year coupled with improved export demand, which has partially offset declines in domestic sawtimber demand due to mill curtailments. We further expect that Pacific Northwest pricing will be somewhat volatile and dependent on the duration of domestic mill curtailments as well as potential changes in China export demand and the availability of competitive supply as different regions cope with the impacts of COVID-19. In our New Zealand Timber segment, full-year harvest volumes are expected to decrease to between 2.1 and 2.3 million tons, primarily as a result of the shutdown of all non-essential activity in New Zealand during parts of March and April. We expect some near-term upside in New Zealand pricing resulting from pent-up demand following the shutdown, while longer-term pricing will be driven by the timing of resumed economic activity and the resultant level of domestic and export demand. In our Real Estate segment, we anticipate a significant slowdown in Improved and Unimproved Development sales for the balance of the year, although we continue to expect reasonably strong Rural sales activity based on our current pipeline of transactions.”

“Despite the significant challenges being experienced by global economies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe that Rayonier is well-positioned to weather this storm,” continued Nunes. “The forest products industry has been designated as a critical infrastructure industry by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and we have therefore been able to maintain our U.S. forestry operations in order to continue to supply fiber for the manufacturing of essential products, including tissue paper, cardboard boxes and structural lumber. I’m proud of the dedication and resiliency that our employees have demonstrated during this crisis, and I’m confident in the strength of our balance sheet and liquidity position. As a pure-play timberland REIT, we enjoy strong margins and substantially less volatility than downstream manufacturing businesses, and we have a geographically diverse portfolio that further mitigates our exposure to any single region or product category. We expect that the diversity and optionality of our portfolio will be further enhanced when we close the Pope Resources merger transaction in the second quarter, pending the successful vote of Pope’s unitholders.”

(a)

Capital expenditures exclude timberland acquisitions of $24.1 million and $12.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and March 31, 2019, respectively.

(b)

Cash Available for Distribution (CAD) is defined as cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital spending (excluding timberland acquisitions and real estate development investments) and working capital and other balance sheet changes. CAD is a non-GAAP measure of cash generated during a period that is available for common stock dividends, distributions to the New Zealand minority shareholder, repurchase of the Company’s common shares, debt reduction, timberland acquisitions and real estate development investments. CAD is not necessarily indicative of the CAD that may be generated in future periods.

(c)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, the non-cash cost of land and improved development, non-operating income and expense, costs related to the merger with Pope Resources and Large Dispositions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to make strategic decisions about the business and that investors can use to evaluate the operational performance of the assets under management. It removes the impact of specific items that management believes do not directly reflect the core business operations on an ongoing basis.

(d)

Cash interest paid is presented net of patronage refunds received of $4.3 million and $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and March 31, 2019, respectively.

(e)

“Large Dispositions” are defined as transactions involving the sale of timberland that exceed $20 million in size and do not have a demonstrable premium relative to timberland value. In March 2020, the Company completed a disposition of approximately 67,000 acres located in Mississippi for a sales price and gain of approximately $116.0 million and $28.7 million, respectively.

(a)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, the non-cash cost of land and improved development, non-operating income and expense and Large Dispositions. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that management uses to make strategic decisions about the business and that investors can use to evaluate the operational performance of the assets under management. It removes the impact of specific items that management believes do not directly reflect the core business operations on an ongoing basis.

(b)

“Costs related to the merger with Pope Resources” include legal, accounting and due diligence, consulting and other costs related to the previously announced definitive merger agreement with Pope Resources, which is expected to close on May 8, 2020.

(c)

“Large Dispositions” are defined as transactions involving the sale of timberland that exceed $20 million in size and do not have a demonstrable premium relative to timberland value. In March 2020, the Company completed a disposition of approximately 67,000 acres located in Mississippi for a sales price and gain of approximately $116.0 million and $28.7 million, respectively.

(d)

Pro forma net (loss) income is defined as net income attributable to Rayonier, Inc. adjusted for costs related to the merger with Pope Resources and Large Dispositions. Rayonier believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with useful information to evaluate our core business operations because it excludes specific items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results.
