Outokumpu wil winst verder opvoeren
En schulden nog verder terugdringen.

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) Outokumpu heeft de eerste fase van de ingezette transformatie van het bedrijf ruim op tijd kunnen afronden en stelt nu voor de tweede fase zichzelf ten doel de winst nog verder op te voeren en de schuldratio terug te dringen. Dit meldde de Finse fabrikant van roestvast staal donderdagochtend.

In deze tweede fase moet de schuldratio naar minder dan 1,0, onder normale marktomstandigheden. De EBITDA moet structureel met nog eens 200 miljoen euro omhoog. Daarnaast wordt de komende drie jaar voor 600 miljoen geïnvesteerd. En tot slot wordt gestreefd naar een stabiel en zelfs stijgend dividend.

Donderdag zei Outokumpu dat dankzij het nieuwe dividendbeleid en de huidige winstontwikkeling het dividendvoorstel bij de komende jaarvergadering "significant" omhoog kan.

De eerste fase was gericht op risicoreductie en balansversterking door onder meer kostenverlagingen.

Outokumpu had daarbij twee financiële doelstellingen, die allebei zijn gehaald, namelijk een verbetering van de EBITDA met 250 miljoen euro en een schuldratio van minder dan 3,0.

Outokumpu Orders Mold Expert Fiber Systems from Primetals

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
29 Jun, 2022, 5:57 am

Finnish stainless steel producer Outokumpu has recently placed an order with Primetals Technologies for two new molds and two new Mold Expert Fiber systems. The equipment will be supplied to Outokumpu’s two single-strand slab casters at its site in Tornio, located in the north-western part of Finland. Startup is scheduled for April 2023. As a global market leader in stainless steel, Outokumpu wants to use Primetals Technologies’ expertise and technology to take its proficiency in casting stainless steel to a new level.

The variety of stainless steel grades in Outokumpu’s product portfolio is constantly increasing as more complex and specialized steels are introduced and produced. At the same time, quality levels for standard products are also increasing as the products are used in more demanding applications. To be able to successfully expand our product portfolio, to further improve product quality, and to ensure safe production, Outokumpu has decided to invest in cutting-edge technology for mold temperature measurement. The new technology provides a new type of visualization of the mold. This is of great importance because the mold is where the slab’s surface quality is determined. Also, Mold Expert Fiber gives the possibility to control the casting process and the solidification of the steel to a greater extent.

Mold Expert Fiber’s core aim is to alarm operators to the possibility of a caster-mold breakout at the earliest possible stage. The system will also deliver information that up until now was unattainable, for example data on the exact mold level across the whole width of the mold and the liquid steel’s movements inside the mold. Therefore, the Mold Expert Fiber system will be a main tool for Outokumpu for developing new steel grades.

The two systems that will be supplied to the Tornio plant feature 1,786 measuring points per mold, which is more than 30 times more sensors compared with conventional thermocouple measuring. The secret behind this abundance of measuring points is fiber technology – Fiber Bragg Gratings which reflect light are burned into the fiber, and when the temperature changes, they reflect the light differently. These changes can be measured with great accuracy and visualized. As a result, the measuring points are producing a real time thermal image of what is going on inside the mold.

The scope of supply includes detail engineering, mechanical engineering, manufacturing, commissioning, and a one-year service deal. This means that for the first 12 months after purchase, Primetals Technologies will support Outokumpu in handling and analyzing the rich amount of slab casting data.

Outokumpu Reports EUR 923 Million EBITDA in H1 of 2022

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
5 Aug, 2022, 6:52 am

Finland based leading global stainless steel producer Outokumpu’s sales increased to EUR 2.951 billion in the April-June 2022 quarter as compared to EUR 2.760 billion in April-June 2021 quarter and adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 547 million as compared to EUR 377 million in prior year quarter. Outokumpu’s President & CEO Mr Heikki Malinen said “Our strong performance continued in the second quarter. The past months have been eventful for Outokumpu. To mention a few of the key events of the second quarter, we launched the second phase of our strategy, introduced emission-minimized stainless steel product line Circle Green and announced our aim to achieve carbon neutrality at our Kemi chrome mine by 2025. In July, we announced that we will divest the majority of Long Products business area. This divestment represents a successful closing of the turnaround program, which was started two years ago.”

Total stainless steel deliveries in Q2 declined by 7% while realized prices for stainless steel continued to further strengthen in Europe and also in Americas. Profitability was negatively impacted by increased maintenance costs and higher variable costs, mainly due to significant cost inflation in freight and consumable prices. Raw material-related inventory and metal derivative gains were significantly higher compared to the previous quarter, mainly due to positive timing impacts, and amounted to EUR 86 million

During the first-half of 2022, Outokumpu’s sales increased to EUR 5.712 billion and adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 923 million. Total stainless steel deliveries in the first-half of 2022 were 1% higher compared to the same period last year. In 2022, profitability was driven by remarkably increased realized prices for stainless steel in both Europe and Americas and a higher ferrochrome sales price. However, fixed and variable costs increased compared to the previous year. Especially significant cost inflation in energy, freight and consumable prices burdened profitability. Raw material-related inventory and metal derivative gains amounted to EUR 43 million in the first-half of 2022

Outlook for Q3 2022 “Group stainless steel deliveries for continuing operations* in the third quarter are expected to decrease by 10–20% compared to the second quarter. Prices for stainless steel in the already received orders have remained at a high level. The European ferrochrome benchmark price decreased to USD 1.80/lb for the third quarter. Energy costs are expected to increase in the third quarter and impact especially negatively business area Ferrochrome. Planned maintenance costs in the third quarter are expected to increase by approximately EUR 10 million compared to the second quarter. With current raw material prices, significant raw material-related inventory and metal derivative losses are expected to be realized in the third quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for continuing operations in the third quarter of 2022 is expected to be lower compared to the second quarter. Continuing operations is excluding the Long Products business units to be divested, which will be classified as assets held for sale, reported and restated as discontinued operations in Q3 of2022. Continuing operations represents approximately 90% of Group second-quarter adjusted EBITDA.”

Outokumpu’s history began in 1910 with the discovery of copper in Kuusjärvi, Finland on a hill called Outokumpu, which literally means strange hill. Over the years, Outokumpu mined and refined various metals in Finland and abroad, before focusing solely on stainless steel in the 2000s.

Outokumpu to Delay Ferrochrome Furnace Restart over Energy Prices

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
7 Sep, 2022, 6:54 am

Finland headquartered global stainless steel leader Outokumpu will delay the restart of one of its ferrochrome furnaces after a maintenance break due to the elevated electricity price. Outokumpu said “Due to exceptionally high energy prices and an unstable energy market, stainless steel producer Outokumpu has decided to delay the restart of one of its three ferrochrome furnaces after a planned maintenance break. The maintenance break starts on 7 September and restart was initially planned for week 40. Ferrochrome production will continue at about 70% of its full capacity.”

Outokumpu’s President Ferrochrome Mr Martti Sassi said “Energy prices have increased significantly, which has had a negative impact on our cost competitiveness compared to our non-European competitors. We hope that decisive actions are taken at both EU and national level to stabilize the energy market. We are keeping a close eye on the situation and hope that politicians will take an active role in normalizing the operating environment. We have already been optimizing our ferrochrome production by not producing ferrochrome at the highest hourly prices to avoid the worst peaks in prices, as communicated earlier*. The decision to delay the reopening of one of our furnaces is a continuation of the ferrochrome production optimization.”

Despite the decrease in Outokumpu’s ferrochrome production, the company’s stainless steel production will remain on the same level as guided in January–June interim report, and these measures will not impact customer deliveries or financial outlook for the third quarter.

Outokumpu to Invest in Biocoke & Biomethane Plant in Finland

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
3 Oct, 2022, 6:18 am

Helsinki Finland headquartered stainless steel giant Outokumpu plans a significant investment in a biocoke and biomethane plant, aiming at reduce climate emissions and increasing self-sufficiency in energy in Finland. As a part of its ambitious climate actions, Outokumpu is planning an investment in a biocoke and biomethane plant at its stainless-steel production site in Tornio in Finland. This large-scale biocoke project has now proceeded to a phase where Outokumpu is applying for investment support totalling EUR 25 million. If realized, this project would significantly increase self-sufficiency in energy in Finland and it also has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 200,000 tonnes per year. This project supports significantly the Finnish and European energy and climate targets for 2030.

The new biocoke and biomethane plant would show that it is possible to produce a new raw material from the forest industry waste that is currently burned for low-efficient energy creation purposes. The new raw material, which is called biocoke, could replace the coke that it currently imports and that is used as reductant in Outokumpu’s ferrochrome production process.

Outokumpu’s biocoke project is a result of the research done in the Towards Carbon Neutral Metals or TOCANEM program, financed by Business Finland. The biocoke project would, if realized, be one of the first new significant industrial investments to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as a result of the TOCANEM program. In the TOCANEM research program, the metal industry and research organizations have together researched possibilities to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the production of steel and other metals.

Outokumpu to Continue to Restrict Ferrochrome Production

Stainless steel leader Outokumpu plans to continue to restrict its ferrochrome production and starts related change negotiations. Outokumpu said “The price of electricity remains exceptionally high and the situation on the energy market has not eased since Outokumpu announced on September 6 its decision to delay the restart of one of its three ferrochrome furnaces after a maintenance break. In this exceptional situation, the company plans therefore to further delay the restart of this furnace at least until the end of the first quarter of 2023 and will start change negotiations related to the restriction of the ferrochrome production. These negotiations concern all of the employees working in the ferrochrome operations, and the planned measures would concern at most 70 people.”

Outokumpu President Business Area Ferrochrome Mr Martti Sassi said “Unfortunately, the situation in the energy market has not eased, but the high price of electricity continues to have a negative impact on our cost competitiveness compared to our competitors, mainly from outside Europe. The possible further delay of the restarting of the furnace is a difficult but potentially necessary measure in an utterly exceptional situation. In the change negotiations, we will try to find a solution for us to be able to employ our ferrochrome personnel in the other Tornio operations.”

Outokumpu started to optimize its ferrochrome production in August 2022 by not producing ferrochrome at the highest electricity prices. The capacity of the furnace that has been shut down is approximately 30% of the entire ferrochrome capacity. Continuing to restrict the ferrochrome production will not impact Outokumpu’s stainless-steel deliveries.

Strategic Research Institute
Published on :
7 Nov, 2022, 3:27 am

Finland headquartered stainless steel leader Outokumpu has reported strong EBITDA of EUR 304 million in July-September quarter of 2022 as compared to EUR 228 million in prior year with sales of 491,000 tonnes, down as compared of 546,000 tonnes in prior year. Outokumpu’s stainless steel deliveries were 1.656 million tonnes in January-September of 2022 down From 1.704 million tonnes in January-September of 2021 and EBITDA of EUR 1.146 billion as compared to EUR 668 million in prior year

Outokumpu President & CEO Mr Heikki Malinen said “Our third-quarter performance was solid. We delivered EUR 304 million of adjusted EBITDA, which is the best third-quarter result in Outokumpu’s history. Our stainless steel deliveries fell by 12% in a softening market with exceptionally high imports. Distributors accelerated de-stocking of commodity grades, while end-user demand remained stable.”

He said “Due to high electricity prices, we have been optimizing our ferrochrome production, which has led to lower production volumes, and adjusted EBITDA for business area Ferrochrome declined to EUR 34 million. We also decided to delay the restart of one of our three ferrochrome furnaces to at least the end of the first quarter of 2023.”

Outlook for Q4 2022

Group stainless steel deliveries in the fourth quarter are expected to decrease by 0–10% compared to the third quarter.

The European ferrochrome benchmark price decreased to USD 1.49/lb for the fourth quarter.

Ferrochrome production continues at 50–60% of its full capacity due to a furnace shutdown and the optimization of the ferrochrome production, caused by exceptionally high electricity costs.

With current raw material prices, raw material-related inventory and metal derivative losses are expected to be realized in the fourth quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2022 is expected to be lower compared
