Third quarter earnings include a $4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, non-cash expense related to fire losses experienced in Montana and Oregon during the quarter. Earnings for the third quarter of 2012 were $59 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, on revenues of $354 million.

discount timberland boots Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure of operating performance, for the first nine months of 2013 was $384 million, compared to $380 million for the same period of 2012. The company ended the quarter with $439 million in cash and cash equivalents. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and cash flow from operations is provided as an attachment to this release.

timberland boots “We had a very good quarter reporting earnings above the high end of our guidance range despite the two cent fire related charge,” said Rick Holley, Plum Creek’s chief executive officer. “Each business segment performed well. Northern timber markets remain strong and Southern timber markets continue to improve slowly. Our Manufacturing segment posted another strong performance and our Real Estate segment is seeing improving market conditions in some regions. We expect fairly stable business conditions during the fourth quarter and are looking forward to continued improvement in timber markets during 2014.”

timberland boots kids Review of Operations

timberland boots on sale The Northern Resources segment reported $5 million of operating income during the third quarter that includes the impact of the $4 million non-cash fire loss. Approximately 12,000 acres of company lands in Montana and Oregon were damaged by wildfires during the quarter. Segment operating income for the same period of 2012 was $5 million. Strengthening demand for sawlogs has led to higher prices over the past year. Average sawlog prices increased more than 14 percent as domestic sawmills competed with strong export demand on the West Coast. Average pulpwood prices in the Northern Resources segment were up modestly, $1 per ton. As planned, the harvest volume of one million tons was approximately 9 percent lower than the same period of 2012.

Operating income in the Southern Resources segment was $27 million, a $4 million increase over the $23 million reported during the third quarter of 2012, despite higher pulpwood harvest volumes in 2012. The segment’s sawlog harvest was unchanged from the third quarter of 2012. Both sawlog and pulpwood prices have improved over the past year. Southern sawlog prices have improved approximately eight percent on growing log demand in the region. Good demand from pulp and paper mills and stronger demand from OSB producers throughout the region have resulted in 12 percent growth in pulpwood prices over the past year. In general, log price improvement has been stronger in the eastern regions of the South such as Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas than the western regions such as Arkansas and Louisiana.

The Real Estate segment reported third quarter revenue of $96 million and operating income of $63 million. Third quarter 2012 Real Estate segment revenue was $96 million and operating income was $54 million. The 2013 results included the sale of approximately 15,000 acres of Oregon timberland for approximately $53 million. The 2012 sales were anchored by the sale of approximately 100,000 acres of Wisconsin timberland for approximately $67 million. Smaller rural land sales across the company’s holdings accounted for the remaining $43 million of the third quarter 2013 revenue.

The Manufacturing segment reported $11 million of operating income for the third quarter, compared to the $9 million of operating income reported for the third quarter of 2012. Operating income growth was driven by strong pricing for the company’s panel products and higher lumber sales volumes. Medium density fiberboard (MDF) prices have increased approximately seven percent over the past twelve months while plywood prices have increased approximately six percent. Sales volumes for plywood and MDF were largely unchanged from the same period of 2012 as both facilities continued to run near capacity. Lumber sales volumes increased 47 percent compared to the third quarter of 2012 due to the April 2013 re-start of the company’s Evergreen sawmill. Average lumber prices declined approximately five percent. This was due solely to the introduction of lower–valued stud lumber produced by the re-opened sawmill.

Outlook

The company expects its full-year harvest to approximate 17.5 million tons.

During the fourth quarter, the company expects to harvest approximately 900 thousand tons in its Northern Resources segment and approximately 4 million tons in its Southern Resources segment.

Fourth quarter Real Estate segment sales are expected to be between $47 million and $52 million.

In the fourth quarter, seasonally lower sales volumes for the company’s manufactured products are expected to result in lower Manufacturing segment profitability compared to the third quarter.

The company expects to report fourth quarter earnings between $0.26 and $0.31 per share.

“We are excited about the future of Plum Creek and our position in the marketplace. We continue to execute on our goal of long-term value creation for our shareholders. Disciplined capital allocation is at the heart of our strategy and is the single most important tool we have to create true and lasting long-term value,” concluded Holley.

Segment Data - Adjusted EBITDA

Reconciliation of Operating Income and Net Cash

Provided by Operating Activities

(Unaudited)

We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings from continuing operations, excluding equity method earnings, and before interest, taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and basis in lands sold. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components of our consolidated financial statements.

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because we believe it facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period, and each business segment’s contribution to that performance, by eliminating non-cash charges to earnings, which can vary significantly by business segment. These non-cash charges include timber depletion, depreciation of fixed assets and the basis in lands sold. We also use Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental liquidity measure because we believe it is useful in measuring our ability to generate cash. In addition, we believe Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by investors, lenders and rating agencies to assess our financial performance.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and net cash from operating activities, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP performance and liquidity measures, is provided in the following schedules:
