I’m proud of the progress we’ve made as a company against our priorities – accelerating organic growth, driving improved operating efficiencies, and generating strong free cash flow – and the impact our discipline is having on our results,” said Chief Executive Officer Brian Chambers. “We are well positioned to continue to execute on our priorities and capitalize on market opportunities to deliver attractive returns for our investors in 2020.”

Return of Capital Actions and Other Highlights

  • Owens Corning sustained a high level of safety performance in 2019, with a recordable incident rate of 0.65.
  • Owens Corning generated free cash flow of $590 million, an increase of over $300 million from 2018, which resulted in free cash flow conversion of 118%. (See Table 8.)
  • On February 6, the company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.24 per common share, a 9% increase compared with the same period in the prior year. The dividend will be payable on April 3, 2020, to shareholders of record as of March 6, 2020. During 2019, $95 million of cash was returned to shareholders through dividends.
  • During 2019, Owens Corning repurchased 1.0 million shares of common stock for $48 million.
  • Owens Corning was recently named an industry leader in sustainability for the building products category in the 2020 edition of the Sustainability Yearbook, published by S&P Global in collaboration with RobecoSAM, for the seventh consecutive year. Additionally, the company obtained a perfect score on the 2020 Corporate Equality Index for the sixteenth consecutive year.
  • Mike Thaman, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, will retire from the company as of the date of the Annual Meeting of Stockholders, currently scheduled in April 2020. Brian Chambers, President and Chief Executive Officer, has been elected by the Board to succeed Mr. Thaman as Chairman effective at the same time.

2020 Outlook

  • The company’s outlook is based on an environment consistent with consensus expectations for global industrial production, U.S. housing starts, and global commercial and industrial construction indices.
  • In Insulation, the company expects a favorable market outlook for U.S. new residential construction and modest growth in global construction and industrial markets. In this business, the company expects strong earnings growth primarily driven by volume growth and operating leverage in the North America residential fiberglass insulation business and continued earnings improvement in the technical and other building insulation businesses.
  • In Composites, the company expects a weaker glass fiber market in the first-half of the year which is expected to strengthen in the second-half, consistent with global industrial production. The business will continue to focus on growth in higher-value downstream applications and strong operating performance.
  • In Roofing, the company expects relatively flat U.S. shingle industry shipments, assuming average storm demand. The impact of the newly effective International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2020 regulations on marine sector emissions is not currently expected to have a significant impact on asphalt costs for the business. Cash contribution margins entering 2020 position the business for continued strong performance.
  • The company estimates an effective tax rate of 26% to 28%, and a cash tax rate of 10% to 12% on adjusted pre-tax earnings, which is due to the company’s foreign tax credit carryforwards.
  • The company expects general corporate expenses of $125 million to $135 million. Capital additions are expected to be in line with depreciation and amortization of approximately $460 million. Interest expense is expected to be approximately $115 million.
  • The company anticipates sustaining strong conversion of adjusted earnings into free cash flow. The company plans to prioritize free cash flow to ongoing dividends and reduction of the term loan associated with the purchase of Paroc. Additionally, free cash flow could be deployed for share repurchases. As of the end of 2019, 3.6 million shares were available for repurchase under the current authorization. The company continues to target returning at least 50% of free cash flow to shareholders over time.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

Owens Corning uses non-GAAP measures in its earnings press release that are intended to supplement investors’ understanding of the company’s financial information. These non-GAAP measures include EBIT, adjusted EBIT, adjusted earnings, adjusted diluted earnings per share attributable to Owens Corning common stockholders (“adjusted EPS”), adjusted pre-tax earnings, free cash flow and free cash flow conversion. When used to report historical financial information, reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are included in the financial tables of this press release. Specifically, see Table 2 for EBIT and adjusted EBIT, Table 7 for adjusted earnings and adjusted EPS, and Table 8 for free cash flow.

For purposes of internal review of Owens Corning’s year-over-year operational performance, management excludes from net earnings attributable to Owens Corning certain items it believes are not representative of ongoing operations. The non-GAAP financial measures resulting from these adjustments (including adjusted EBIT, adjusted earnings, adjusted EPS and adjusted pre-tax earnings) are used internally by Owens Corning for various purposes, including reporting results of operations to the Board of Directors, analysis of performance, and related employee compensation measures. Management believes that these adjustments result in a measure that provides a useful representation of its operational performance; however, the adjusted measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings attributable to Owens Corning as prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP liquidity measure used by investors, financial analysts and management to help evaluate the company's ability to generate cash to pursue opportunities that enhance shareholder value. Free cash flow is not a measure of residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures due to the company’s mandatory debt service requirements. As a conversion ratio, free cash flow is compared to adjusted earnings. Free cash flow and free cash flow conversion are used internally by the company for various purposes, including reporting results of operations to the Board of Directors of the company and analysis of performance. Management believes that these measures provide a useful representation of our operational performance and liquidity; however, the measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net cash flow provided by operating activities or net earnings attributable to Owens Corning as prepared in accordance with GAAP.

When the company provides forward-looking expectations for non-GAAP measures, the most comparable GAAP measures and a reconciliation between the non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures are generally not available without unreasonable effort due to the variability, complexity and limited visibility of the adjusting items that would be excluded from the non-GAAP measures in future periods. The variability in timing and amount of adjusting items could have significant and unpredictable effect on our future GAAP results.

(a)

Adjusting items in 2019 include loss on extinguishment of debt. Please refer to Table 2 "EBIT Reconciliation Schedules" for additional information on adjusting items.

(b)

The tax impact of adjusting items is based on our expected tax accounting treatment and rate for the jurisdiction of each adjusting item.

(c)

To compute adjusted earnings, we apply a full year pro forma effective tax rate to each quarter presented. For 2019, we have used an effective tax rate of 28%, which was our 2019 effective tax rate excluding the adjusting items referenced in (a) and (b) and excluding the impact of a change in estimate related to proposed regulations on global intangible low-taxed income (GILTI), part of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. For comparability, in 2018, we have used an effective tax rate of 26%, which was our 2018 effective tax rate excluding the impact of our net charge related to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the tax impact of adjusting items and other significant tax items.
