ak steel holding corp (AKS) Key Developments

AK Steel Provides Earnings and Operations Outlook for the First Quarter of 2014

AK Steel provided earnings guidance for its first quarter of 2014. For the period, the company expects to report a net loss of $0.44 to $0.49 per diluted share of common stock. The expected net loss was driven principally by several significant factors during the first quarter that the company does not expect to continue during the rest of the year, including higher energy costs related to the extreme cold weather, an unplanned blast furnace outage, the acceleration of a planned blast furnace outage, and a charge for a tentative legal settlement. The company expects to record an income tax benefit at an effective tax rate of approximately 29% for the first quarter of 2014. The company expects shipments of approximately 1,250,000 to 1,275,000 tons in the first quarter of 2014, an approximate 10% to 12% decrease from 1,420,000 tons in the fourth quarter of 2013. The reduction in shipments for the first quarter is attributable principally to the effects of the unplanned outage at the company's Ashland Works blast furnace (described below) resulting in a decline in shipments of carbon steel to the spot market and a decline in shipments of electrical steel, partially offset by higher automotive shipments.

AK Steel Completes New $1.1 Billion Credit Facility

AK Steel has entered into a new $1.1 billion, five-year revolving credit facility with a group of lenders. The new credit facility will expire in March 2019. Bank of America, N.A., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC acted as joint lead arrangers. The new credit facility is secured by most of the company's inventory and accounts receivable. It replaces the company's existing $1.1 billion credit facility, which was set to expire in April 2016 and was secured by the same classes of assets as the new credit facility. The new credit facility will provide the company with enhanced liquidity and greater financial and strategic flexibility. It will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.
