Deltic Announces Preliminary First Quarter 2011 Results

EL DORADO, AR – President and Chief Executive Officer, Ray C. Dillon, of Deltic Timber Corporation (NYSE-DEL) announced today preliminary net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $.1 million, $.01 a share, compared to net income of $2.3 million, $.18 a share, a year ago. The decrease in 2011’s first quarter results was due primarily to a lower average lumber sales realization when compared to the first quarter of 2010. Lumber prices in 2010 benefitted from a supply-side driven price increase primarily caused by a sawmill log supply shortage due to inclement weather in the southeast portion of the U.S. Net cash required by operating activities was $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2011, which compares to net cash provided of $4.4 million a year ago.

Commenting on results, Mr. Dillon stated, “While first quarter earnings were lower when compared to a year ago, I am pleased to report profitable financial results for the eighth consecutive quarter. This was achieved despite the continued depressed economic conditions for the forest and building products and residential and commercial real estate development businesses. We remained profitable even with persistent record-low prices for pine sawtimber, lack of the usual spring building-season benefit to lumber prices, continuation of a depressed residential real estate market, and absence of a commercial acreage real estate sale. The positive results are attributable to our diverse asset base and intensive, cost-conscious management of all of our operations.”

Operating income for Deltic’s Woodlands segment was $4.7 million in the first quarter of 2011, a decrease of $.4 million when compared to $5.1 million for the same period a year ago. The Company harvested 146,089 tons of pine sawtimber in 2011’s first quarter, a slight decrease from the first quarter of 2010’s harvest of 146,488 tons, due to timing of the planned annual harvest for 2011. The average per-ton sales price for pine sawtimber was $26 for both periods. Pine pulpwood harvested in 2011’s first

quarter totaled 125,467 tons at a sales price of $8 per ton, which compares to 79,379 tons harvested at $16 per ton for the same period of 2010. Pulpwood prices in the first quarter of 2010 also benefitted from the inclement weather, which hampered logging conditions. Oil and gas lease rentals and net royalty income totaled $1.6 million during the first quarter of 2011 compared to $1.4 million for the same quarter of 2010. During the current quarter, the Company sold approximately 307 acres of timberland, consisting mostly of non-strategic recreational-use hardwood bottomland, at an average sales price of $1,400 per acre versus 2010’s first quarter sales of 232 acres at an average sales price of $1,600 per acre.

Deltic’s Mills segment reported operating income of $.7 million in the first quarter of 2011, which compares to $2.5 million for the same period of 2010. The decrease was due to a lower current-quarter average lumber sales price of $266 per thousand board feet, which was a reduction of $44 per thousand board feet, or 14 percent, from the first quarter of 2010’s average sales price. Lumber sales volume of 62.5 million board feet in 2011’s first quarter decreased 1.2 million board feet when compared to 63.7 million board feet sold in the first quarter a year ago. The Company’s operating plan for its sawmills is to continue matching lumber production with market demand.

The Company’s Real Estate segment reported an operating loss of $.8 million in the first quarter of 2011 compared to a $.7 million loss for the same period of 2010. Residential lot sales totaled three lots in 2011’s current period compared to six lots sold in the same period of 2010. The current quarter’s average per-lot sales price was $85,300, a $44,300 per-lot decrease when compared to 2010’s first quarter average price of $129,600 per lot, which was due to the mix of lots sold. There were no sales of commercial real estate acreage in the first quarter of either year.

Corporate operating expense was $4 million in the first quarter of 2011, which compares to $3.5 million for the corresponding period of 2010. The increase is due to higher general and administrative expenses, mainly employee incentive plan expense related to equity awards resulting from recent increases in the Company’s share price. Deltic’s equity in earnings of Del-Tin Fiber was $.5 million for the first quarter of both 2011 and 2010. Income taxes in the current-year period were $.1 million compared to $1.1 million in the prior year primarily due to lower pretax income. The effective tax rate in the first quarter of 2011 was 40 percent. Whereas, the 2010 effective tax rate was 33 percent due to benefits from permanent tax differences and a discrete state tax benefit.

Capital expenditures were $4 million for the first quarter of 2011, while expenditures for the same period of 2010 were $2.8 million.

Regarding the outlook for the second quarter and year of 2011, Mr. Dillon stated, “Currently, we anticipate the pine sawtimber harvest to be 150,000 to 175,000 tons and 550,000 to 600,000 tons, respectively. Finished lumber production and sales volumes are estimated at 60 to 70 million board feet for the second quarter and 230 to 270 million board feet for the year, depending upon market conditions. Residential lot sales are projected at 5 to 10 lots and 20 to 40 lots for the second quarter and year of 2011, respectively. Although commercial acreage within Chenal Valley continues to receive interest, because of its highly uncertain nature and the significant number of factors involved, the Company is unable to predict the closing of any commercial real estate transactions at this time.”
