Steel Dynamics Provides Second Quarter 2024 Earnings Guidance

 

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA, June 17, 2024 / PRNewswire / Steel Dynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ/GS: STLD) today provided second quarter 2024 earnings guidance in the range of $2.64 to $2.68 per diluted share. Comparatively, the company’s sequential first quarter 2024 earnings were $3.67 per diluted share, and prior year second quarter earnings were $4.81 per diluted share.

 

Second quarter 2024 profitability from the company’s steel operations are expected to be meaningfully lower than sequential first quarter results, based on lower realized pricing offsetting steady shipments. Underlying domestic steel demand remains intact although steel buying hesitancy has resulted from a weakening scrap price environment. The automotive, non-residential construction, energy, and industrial sectors continue to lead demand.

 

Second quarter 2024 earnings from the company’s metals recycling operations are expected to be higher than sequential first quarter results, based on stronger volumes in both ferrous and nonferrous materials.

 

Second quarter 2024 earnings from the company’s steel fabrication operations are expected to be in line with sequential first quarter results, based on increased shipments offsetting incrementally lower realized pricing. The non-residential construction sector remains solid, as further evidenced by steel joist and deck order backlog volume that extends into the fourth quarter of 2024, with historically strong associated product pricing. In addition, the continued onshoring of manufacturing, coupled with the robust U.S. infrastructure program and industrial buildouts, support strong demand in the coming years.

 

Based on continued confidence in the company’s earnings outlook and cash flow generation, the company repurchased $247 million, or 1.1 percent, of its common stock during the second quarter through June 10, 2024.

 

The company plans to release its second quarter 2024 earnings after the markets close on Wednesday, July 17, 2024, and will hold a conference call the following day at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time to review the company's results.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This report contains some predictive statements about future events, including statements related to conditions in domestic or global economies, conditions in steel, aluminum, and recycled metals market places, Steel Dynamics' revenues, costs of purchased materials, future profitability and earnings, and the operation of new, existing or planned facilities. These statements, which we generally precede or accompany by such typical conditional words as "anticipate", "intend", "believe", "estimate", "plan", "seek", "project", or "expect", or by the words "may", "will", or "should", are intended to be made as "forward-looking", subject to many risks and uncertainties, within the safe harbor protections of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements speak only as of this date and are based upon information and assumptions, which we consider reasonable as of this date, concerning our businesses and the environments in which they operate. Such predictive statements are not guarantees of future performance, and we undertake no duty to update or revise any such statements. Some factors that could cause such forward-looking statements to turn out differently than anticipated include: (1) domestic and global economic factors; (2) global steelmaking overcapacity and imports of steel, together with increased scrap prices; (3) pandemics, epidemics, widespread illness or other health issues; (4) the cyclical nature of the steel industry and the industries we serve; (5) volatility and major fluctuations in prices and availability of scrap metal, scrap substitutes and supplies, and our potential inability to pass higher costs on to our customers; (6) cost and availability of electricity, natural gas, oil, and other energy resources are subject to volatile market conditions; (7) increased environmental, greenhouse gas emissions and sustainability considerations from our customers or related regulations; (8) compliance with and changes in environmental and remediation requirements; (9) significant price and other forms of competition from other steel and aluminum producers, scrap processors and alternative materials; (10) availability of an adequate source of supply of scrap for our metals recycling operations; (11) cybersecurity threats and risks to the security of our sensitive data and information technology; (12) the implementation of our growth strategy; (13) litigation and legal compliance; (14) unexpected equipment downtime or shutdowns; (15) governmental agencies may refuse to grant or renew some of our licenses and permits; (16) our senior unsecured credit facility contains, and any future financing agreements may contain, restrictive covenants that may limit our flexibility; and (17) the impacts of impairment charges.

 

More specifically, we refer you to our more detailed explanation of these and other factors and risks that may cause such predictive statements to turn out differently, as set forth in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K under the headings Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factors, in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, or in other reports which we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
