Commenting on results, U. S. Steel President and Chief Executive Officer Mario Longhi said, "We entered 2016 facing very challenging market conditions, but remained focused on our Carnegie Way transformation efforts.  Despite lower average realized prices and shipments in 2016, our results are better as we continued to improve our product mix and cost structure.  Our focus on cash, including better working capital management and opportunistic capital markets transactions, resulted in an improved debt maturity profile and stronger cash and liquidity.  We are well positioned to accelerate the revitalization of our assets to improve our operating reliability and efficiency, and deliver value-enhancing solutions to our customers."

Segment earnings before interest and income taxes were $62 million, or $16 per ton, for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared with segment earnings before interest and income taxes of $138 million, or $37 per ton, in the third quarter of 2016 and a segment loss before interest and income taxes of $137 million, or $37 per ton, in the fourth quarter of 2015.

For the fourth quarter 2016, we recorded a tax benefit of $2 million on our pre-tax loss of $107 million.  For the full-year 2016, we recorded a tax provision of $24 million on our pre-tax loss of $416 million.  Due to the full valuation allowance on our domestic deferred tax assets, the tax provision does not reflect any tax impact on domestic results.

We generated positive operating cash flow of $727 million for the year ended December 31, 2016.  As of December 31, 2016, U. S. Steel had $1.5 billion of cash and $2.9 billion of total liquidity.

Segment Analysis

Fourth quarter results for our Flat-Rolled segment declined as compared with the third quarter primarily due to a decrease in average realized prices, fewer shipments, as well as increased outage spending.  Planned outages as part of our previously announced asset revitalization process limited the amount of tons we could ship in the quarter.  Full-year Flat-Rolled segment results for 2016 improved from 2015 largely due to lower raw material costs, lower spending, and benefits provided by our Carnegie Way efforts.  These improvements were partially offset by lower average realized prices and shipments.

Fourth quarter results for our European segment declined as compared with the third quarter primarily due to rising raw material costs, particularly for coking coal and iron units.  These adverse impacts were partially offset by increased shipments and reduced spending.  Full-year European segment results for 2016 improved from 2015 due to lower raw material and energy costs along with better operating efficiencies from running at higher utilization rates, partially offset by lower average realized prices.

Fourth quarter results for our Tubular segment declined as compared with the third quarter largely due to an unfavorable lower of cost or market (LCM) adjustment for obsolete inventory related to the prolonged downturn in the energy markets.  Full-year 2016 results for our Tubular segment decreased from 2015 due to a combination of lower average realized prices and shipments, as well as the LCM adjustment for obsolete inventory, only partly offset by lower substrate costs and improved spending.

2017 Outlook

Commenting on U. S. Steel's outlook for 2017, Longhi said, "We are starting 2017 with much better market conditions than we faced at the beginning of 2016.  Our Carnegie Way transformation efforts over the last three years have improved our cost structure, streamlined our operating footprint and increased our customer focus. These substantive changes and improvements have increased our earnings power.  While we will benefit from improved market conditions, they continue to be volatile and we must remain focused on improving the things that we can control.  Pursuing our safety objective of zero injuries, improving our assets and operating performance, and driving innovation that creates differentiated solutions for our customers remain our top priorities."

If market conditions, which include spot prices, raw material costs, customer demand, import volumes, supply chain inventories, rig counts and energy prices, remain at their current levels, we expect:

  • 2017 net earnings of approximately $535 million, or $3.08 per share, and EBITDA of approximately $1.3 billion;
  • Results for our Flat-Rolled, European, and Tubular segments to be higher than 2016;
  • To be cash positive for the year, primarily due to improved cash from operations; and
  • Other Businesses to be comparable to 2016 and approximately $50 million of postretirement benefit expense.

We believe market conditions will change, and as changes occur during the balance of 2017, our net earnings and EBITDA should change consistent with the pace and magnitude of changes in market conditions.

Please refer to the non-GAAP Financial Measures section of this document for the reconciliation of the Outlook net earnings to EBITDA.

*****

We present adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share, earnings (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures, as additional measurements to enhance the understanding of our operating performance.

We believe that EBITDA, considered along with the net earnings (loss), is a relevant indicator of trends relating to cash generating activity and provides management and investors with additional information for comparison of our operating results to the operating results of other companies.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share are non-GAAP measures that exclude the effects of restructuring charges, impairment charges, losses associated with U. S. Steel Canada Inc., losses on debt extinguishment, certain postemployment actuarial adjustments, and charges for deferred tax asset valuation allowances that are not part of the Company's core operations.  Adjusted EBITDA is also a non-GAAP measure that excludes the effects of restructuring charges, impairment charges, losses associated with U. S. Steel Canada Inc, and certain postemployment actuarial adjustments.  We present adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA to enhance the understanding of our ongoing operating performance and established trends affecting our core operations, particularly cash generating activity, by excluding the effects of restructuring charges, impairment charges, losses on debt extinguishment, certain postemployment actuarial adjustments, charges for deferred tax asset valuation allowances, and losses associated with non-core operations that can obscure underlying trends.  U. S. Steel's management considers adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA useful to investors by facilitating a comparison of our operating performance to the operating performance of our competitors, many of which use adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA as alternative measures of operating  performance.  Additionally, the presentation of adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA provides insight into management's view and assessment of the Company's ongoing operating performance, because management does not consider the adjusting items when evaluating the Company's financial performance or in preparing the Company's annual financial outlook.  Adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net earnings (loss), earnings (loss) per diluted share or other financial measures as computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

A consolidated statement of operations (unaudited), consolidated cash flow statement (unaudited), condensed consolidated balance sheet (unaudited) and preliminary supplemental statistics (unaudited) for U. S. Steel are attached.

The Company will conduct a conference call on fourth quarter and full-year 2016 earnings on Wednesday, February 1, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard.  To listen to the webcast of the conference call, visit the U. S. Steel website, www.ussteel.com, and click on "Current Information" under the "Investors" section.

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This release contains information that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  We intend the forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements in those sections.  Generally, we have identified such forward-looking statements by using the words "believe," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "project," "target," "forecast," "aim," "should," "will" and similar expressions or by using future dates in connection with any discussion of, among other things, operating performance, trends, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future, statements relating to volume growth, share of sales and earnings per share growth, and statements expressing general views about future operating results.  However, the absence of these words or similar expressions does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.  Forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but instead represent only the Company's beliefs regarding future events, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of the Company's control. It is possible that the Company's actual results and financial condition may differ, possibly materially, from the anticipated results and financial condition indicated in these forward-looking statements.  Management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as of the time made.  However, caution should be taken not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements because such statements speak only as of the date when made.  Our Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.  In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our Company's historical experience and our present expectations or projections.  These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to the risks and uncertainties described in "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, and those described from time to time in our future reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
