Cash provided by operating activities was $53.9 million versus $29.2 million in the prior year period. Cash available for distribution (CAD)3 of $47.3 million increased $20.1 million versus the prior year period primarily due to higher Adjusted EBITDA3 ($22.3 million) and lower capital expenditures ($2.6 million), partially offset by higher cash taxes paid ($4.7 million) and higher cash interest paid ($0.2 million).

“We are very encouraged by the momentum across all of our businesses to start 2021,” said David Nunes, President and CEO. “Adjusted EBITDA of $69.5 million was 47% higher than the prior year quarter, as favorable results in the New Zealand Timber, Pacific Northwest Timber and Real Estate segments more than offset slightly lower Adjusted EBITDA in the Southern Timber segment.”

“New Zealand Timber Adjusted EBITDA more than doubled versus the prior year quarter due to significantly higher harvest volumes and sawtimber prices, as the prior year quarter was severely impacted by COVID-19 related headwinds. In Pacific Northwest Timber, Adjusted EBITDA improved 81% versus the prior year quarter due to a significant increase in sawtimber prices, as well as higher volumes from the acquisition of Pope Resources.”

“Southern Timber Adjusted EBITDA declined 5% versus the prior year quarter, as a 7% increase in net stumpage prices and stronger non-timber income were more than offset by 18% lower harvest volumes due to the front-loaded timing of 2020 harvest activity as well as weather-related disruptions during the first quarter. Lastly, Real Estate segment Adjusted EBITDA improved versus the prior year quarter but was still relatively light compared to our full-year expectations due to the timing of closings, which we had anticipated coming into the year.”

Southern Timber

First quarter sales of $51.7 million decreased $1.3 million, or 2%, versus the prior year period primarily due to lower harvest volumes, partially offset by higher average net stumpage prices and higher pipeline easement revenue. Harvest volumes decreased 18% to 1.51 million tons versus 1.84 million tons in the prior year period. The decline in volume was largely due to the timing of harvest operations as compared to the prior year, as well as operational disruptions attributable to wet ground conditions in Georgia and winter snowstorms in the Gulf region. Average pine sawtimber stumpage prices increased 3% to $27.51 per ton versus $26.67 per ton in the prior year period. Robust demand from sawmills and growing demand from the export market coupled with constricted supply due to weather conditions translated into favorable sawtimber pricing across our markets. Average pine pulpwood stumpage prices increased 7% to $17.10 per ton versus $16.05 per ton in the prior year period due to favorable geographic mix as well as tighter supply due to adverse weather conditions. Overall, weighted-average stumpage prices (including hardwood) increased 7% to $21.35 per ton versus $19.91 per ton in the prior year period. Operating income of $17.3 million increased $2.3 million versus the prior year period due to higher net stumpage prices ($2.2 million), higher non-timber income ($2.2 million), lower costs ($0.6 million) and lower depletion rates ($0.6 million), partially offset by lower volumes ($3.4 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $31.7 million was 5%, or $1.6 million, below the prior year period.

Pacific Northwest Timber

First quarter sales of $41.5 million increased $10.4 million, or 34%, versus the prior year period. Harvest volumes increased 13% to 536,000 tons versus 476,000 tons in the prior year period, primarily due to incremental volume from the Pope Resources acquisition. Average delivered sawtimber prices increased 21% to $90.98 per ton versus $75.40 per ton in the prior year period, as exceptionally strong domestic lumber markets drove improved demand and pricing. Average delivered pulpwood prices decreased 23% to $29.36 per ton versus $38.11 per ton in the prior year period, as higher lumber mill residuals resulted in an increased supply of competing wood chip residuals. Operating income of $1.3 million improved $2.3 million versus the prior year period due to higher net stumpage prices ($5.8 million), higher non-timber income ($0.8 million) and volume/mix changes ($0.3 million), partially offset by higher depletion rates ($4.3 million) and higher overhead and other costs ($0.4 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $17.6 million was 81%, or $7.9 million, above the prior year period.

New Zealand Timber

First quarter sales of $57.6 million increased $20.1 million, or 53%, versus the prior year period, as higher harvest volumes and log prices were partially offset by deferred carbon credit sales. Harvest volumes increased 25% to 599,000 tons versus 481,000 tons in the prior year period. The increase in harvest volumes was driven primarily by a normalized level of activity in the first quarter versus a prior year period constrained by COVID-19 disruptions. Average delivered prices for export sawtimber increased 28% to $121.65 per ton versus $94.86 per ton in the prior year period, while average delivered prices for domestic sawtimber increased 16% to $80.95 per ton versus $69.97 per ton in the prior year period. The increase in export sawtimber prices was driven primarily by stronger demand from China, as the prior year period was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Improved export pricing in the current year quarter was also due in part to the restriction on competing log imports to China from Australia. The increase in domestic sawtimber prices (in U.S. dollar terms) was driven primarily by the rise in the NZ$/US$ exchange rate (US$0.72 per NZ$1.00 versus US$0.65 per NZ$1.00). Excluding the impact of foreign exchange rates, domestic sawtimber prices improved by a more modest 4% versus the prior year period due to improved demand. Operating income of $14.0 million increased $8.5 million versus the prior year period as a result of higher net stumpage prices ($9.5 million), higher volumes ($1.8 million) and lower costs ($0.2 million), partially offset by deferred carbon credit sales ($1.8 million), higher depletion rates ($0.7 million) and unfavorable foreign exchange impacts ($0.4 million).

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $21.2 million was 107%, or $11.0 million, above the prior year period.

Timber Funds

The Timber Funds segment generated first quarter sales of $14.9 million on harvest volumes of 145,000 tons, resulting in operating income of $1.5 million. Adjusting for the portion of the Timber Funds segment attributable to noncontrolling interests, pro forma sales3 and pro forma operating income3 were $3.0 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 was $1.0 million.

Real Estate

First quarter sales of $10.5 million decreased $108.0 million versus the prior year period, while operating income of $1.7 million decreased $25.1 million versus the prior year period. The prior year first quarter sales and operating income included $116.0 million and $28.7 million, respectively, from a Large Disposition.1 Excluding this item, pro forma sales3 were $2.5 million, while pro forma operating loss3 was $1.9 million in the prior year period. Pro forma sales3 and pro forma operating income3 improved versus the prior year period due to a higher number of acres sold (2,395 acres sold versus 624 acres sold in the prior year period) and a 9% increase in weighted-average prices ($4,183 per acre versus $3,842 per acre in the prior year period).

Improved Development sales of $0.3 million included three residential lots in the Wildlight development project north of Jacksonville, Florida (an average of $84,000 per lot or $406,000 per acre). There were no Improved Development sales in the prior year period.

There were no Unimproved Development sales in the first quarter or the prior year period.

Rural sales of $9.8 million consisted of 2,394 acres at an average price of $4,079 per acre. This compares to prior year period sales of $2.4 million, which consisted of 624 acres at an average price of $3,842 per acre.

There were no Timberland & Non-Strategic sales in the first quarter or the prior year period.

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA3 of $5.1 million was $6.2 million above the prior year period.

Trading

First quarter sales of $16.7 million decreased $2.3 million versus the prior year period primarily due to lower volumes, partially offset by higher prices. Sales volumes decreased 32% to 141,000 tons versus 207,000 tons in the prior year period. The Trading segment generated operating income of $0.2 million versus breakeven results in the prior year period due to improved trading margins resulting from higher prices.

Other Items

First quarter corporate and other operating expenses of $7.6 million decreased $0.2 million versus the prior year period, which included $2.5 million of costs related to the Pope Resources merger.2 This positive variance was largely offset by higher overhead expenses.

First quarter interest expense of $10.0 million increased $1.8 million versus the prior year period due to higher outstanding debt following the closing of the Pope Resources acquisition.

First quarter income tax expense of $3.5 million decreased $0.3 million versus the prior year period. The New Zealand subsidiary is the primary driver of income tax expense.

In September 2020, we established an at-the-market (ATM) equity offering program under which we may sell common shares, from time to time, having an aggregate sales price of up to $300 million. There were 1.1 million shares issued under the ATM program during the three months ended March 31, 2021 at an average price of $33.31 per share.

Outlook

“Based on our solid start to 2021 and our expectation of a significant pickup in real estate activity as the year progresses, we believe we are on track to achieve full-year Adjusted EBITDA towards the upper end of our prior guidance,” added Nunes. “In our Southern Timber segment, we expect to achieve our full-year volume guidance, as we anticipate that demand from lumber mills will remain strong and that select U.S. South markets will continue to benefit from improving export demand. Further, we continue to expect a modest improvement in weighted average pricing relative to the prior year, with quarterly fluctuations largely driven by geographic mix.”

“In our Pacific Northwest Timber segment, we expect to achieve our full-year volume guidance, although we anticipate lower quarterly harvest volumes for the remainder of the year, as we pulled forward some volume in the first quarter to capture favorable demand and pricing. We further expect that strong lumber demand will continue to hold pricing at or above first quarter average prices for the balance of the year.”

“In our New Zealand Timber segment, we expect to achieve our full-year volume guidance with increased quarterly harvest volumes for the balance of the year. We expect continued strong export and domestic demand, and we further expect that the restriction on Australian log imports into China will constrain log supplies. We anticipate that this positive operating momentum will translate into log prices remaining near or above levels realized in the first quarter, which will be partially offset by elevated shipping costs.”

“In our Real Estate segment, we expect a significant pickup in transaction activity for the balance of the year based on our current pipeline of opportunities. In particular, we are increasingly optimistic about our sales outlook for residential and commercial properties within our real estate development projects. While first quarter closings were relatively light, as expected, we remain confident that we will achieve or exceed our prior full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance.”

(a)

“Costs related to the merger with Pope Resources” include legal, accounting, due diligence, consulting and other costs related to the merger with Pope Resources.

(b)

Capital expenditures exclude timberland acquisitions of $29.9 million and $24.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively.

(c)

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), CAD attributable to noncontrolling interests in Timber Funds, 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 Operating Partnership unitholders, distributions to noncontrolling interests, 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.

(d)

“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.
