EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST AND TAXES

Earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”) by segment consist of net sales less related costs and expenses and are presented on a basis that is used internally for evaluating segment performance.

Accordingly, these items are not reflected in EBIT for our reportable segments and are included in the Corporate, Other and Eliminations category.

4. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company is exposed to, among other risks, the impact of changes in commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates, and interest rates in the normal course of business. The Company’s risk management program is designed to manage the exposure and volatility arising from these risks, and utilizes derivative financial instruments to offset a portion of these risks. The Company uses derivative financial instruments only to the extent necessary to hedge identified business risks, and does not enter into such transactions for trading purposes.

The Company generally does not require collateral or other security with counterparties to these financial instruments and is therefore subject to credit risk in the event of nonperformance; however, the Company monitors credit risk and currently does not anticipate nonperformance by other parties. Contracts with counterparties generally contain right of offset provisions. These provisions effectively reduce the Company’s exposure to credit risk in situations where the Company has gain and loss positions outstanding with a single counterparty. It is the Company’s policy to offset on the Consolidated Balance Sheets the amounts recognized for derivative instruments with any cash collateral arising from derivative instruments executed with the same counterparty under a master netting agreement. As of September 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012, the Company did not have any amounts on deposit with any of its counterparties, nor did any of its counterparties have any amounts on deposit with the Company.

The following table presents the fair value of derivatives and hedging instruments and the respective location on the Consolidated Balance Sheets (in millions):

(a) Losses related to foreign currency derivatives were substantially offset by net revaluation impacts on foreign denominated balance sheet exposures, which were also recorded in other expenses.

Cash Flow Hedges

The Company uses forward and swap contracts, which qualify as cash flow hedges, to manage forecasted exposure to commodity prices. The effective portion of the change in the fair value of cash flow hedges is deferred in accumulated OCI and is subsequently recognized in cost of sales on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings for commodity hedges, when the hedged item impacts earnings. Changes in the fair value of derivative assets and liabilities designated as hedging instruments are shown in other within operating activities on the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Any portion of the change in fair value of derivatives designated as hedging instruments that is determined to be ineffective is recorded in other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

The Company currently has natural gas and electricity commodity derivatives designated as hedging instruments that mature within 15 months. The Company’s policy for natural gas exposures is to hedge up to 75% of its total forecasted exposures for the next two months, up to 50% of its total forecasted exposures for the following four months, and lesser amounts for the remaining periods. The Company’s policy for electricity exposures is to hedge up to 75% of its total forecasted exposures for the current calendar year and up to 65% of its total forecasted exposures for the first calendar year forward. Based on market conditions, approved variation from the standard policy may occur. The Company performs an analysis for effectiveness of its derivatives designated as hedging instruments at the end of each quarter based on the terms of the contract and the underlying item being hedged.

4. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (continued)

 

As of September 30, 2013, $1 million of losses included in accumulated OCI on the Consolidated Balance Sheets relate to contracts that will impact earnings during the next 12 months. Transactions and events that are expected to occur over the next 12 months that will necessitate recognizing these deferred amounts include the recognition of the hedged item through earnings.

Fair Value Hedges

The Company manages its interest rate exposure by balancing the mixture of its fixed and variable rate instruments through interest rate swaps. The swaps are carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with the offset to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Changes in the fair value of these swaps and that of the related debt are recorded in interest expense, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

Other Derivatives

The Company uses forward currency exchange contracts to manage existing exposures to foreign exchange risk related to assets and liabilities recorded on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Gains and losses resulting from the changes in fair value of these instruments are recorded in other (income) expenses, net on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

Other Intangible Assets

The Company expects the ongoing amortization expense for amortizable intangible assets to be approximately $22 million in each of the next five fiscal years. The Company’s future cash flows are not materially impacted by its ability to extend or renew agreements related to our amortizable intangible assets.

Goodwill

The Company tests goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment during the fourth quarter of each year, or more frequently should circumstances change or events occur that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount. No testing was deemed necessary in the third quarter of 2013.

7. ACQUISITIONS

During the third quarter of 2013, the Company made cash payments of $10 million related to our July 31, 2011 acquisitions of FiberTEK Insulation West, LLC and FiberTEK Insulation, LLC. Deferred payments totaling $15 million remain outstanding and are due in annual installments through 2018. As of September 30, 2013, the deferred payments are recorded at their net present value of $5 million in accounts payable and accrued liabilities and $8 million in other liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

During the second quarter of 2013 the Company completed the acquisitions of Thermafiber Inc., a leading manufacturer of mineral wool commercial and industrial insulation products located in Indiana and Tanaka Kikinzoku (Suzhou) Co., Ltd, a producer of glass fiber bushings in China.

The Company provided total consideration that had a fair value of $52 million at the acquisition dates. The acquisitions resulted in the recognition of $19 million in intangible assets; and $24 million in goodwill. The pro-forma effect of these acquisitions on revenues and earnings was not material.

 

8. DIVESTITURES

On September 13, 2013, the Company signed an agreement to sell its Composites glass reinforcements facility in Hangzhou, Peoples Republic of China for total compensation of approximately $70 million to the Hangzhou Municipal Land Reservation Center and the Development and Construction Management Office of Taoyuan New Zone of Gongshu District in Hangzhou (“Hangzhou Government”), both of which are unrelated third party government entities. On September 17, 2013, the Company received $17 million in cash, which is recorded as a deposit on the sale. An additional deposit of $18 million is expected to be received in the fourth quarter of 2013. The balance of the compensation, approximately $35 million, is payable upon returning the land to the Hangzhou Government, which is expected during the first half of 2014. The sale will result in a pre-tax gain of approximately $30 million to $40 million, which will be recognized at the transaction closing.

2012 Cost Reduction Actions

As a result of evaluating market conditions in our Composites segment, we took actions to improve the competitive position of our global manufacturing network by closing certain facilities, with our most significant actions taking place in France, Spain and Italy. These actions were primarily due to market conditions that led to lower capacity requirements within the European region. In conjunction with these actions, the Company recorded $5 million and $17 million in charges related to cost reduction actions and related items for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively; of which, $0 million and $2 million, respectively, is related to severance and is included in charges related to cost reduction actions on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. The $5 million and $15 million of other charges consist of $2 million and $6 million in accelerated depreciation due to the shortened expected useful life of the closed facilities and $3 million and $9 million in other related charges that primarily consisted of facility closure and related other exit costs, respectively.

Senior Notes

The Company issued $600 million of senior notes on October 17, 2012, $350 million of senior notes on June 3, 2009, and $1.2 billion of senior notes on October 31, 2006, which are collectively referred to as the “Senior Notes.” The Senior Notes are general unsecured obligations of the Company and rank pari passu with all existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness of the Company.

The Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by each of the Company’s current and future domestic subsidiaries that are a borrower or guarantor under the Company’s Credit Agreement (as defined below). The guarantees are unsecured and rank equally in right of payment with all other existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness of the guarantors. The guarantees are effectively subordinated to existing and future secured debt of the guarantors to the extent of the assets securing that indebtedness.

The Company has the option to redeem all or part of the Senior Notes at any time at a “make whole” redemption price. The Company is subject to certain covenants in connection with the issuance of the Senior Notes that it believes are usual and customary. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2013.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company terminated all of its then existing interest rate swaps designated to hedge a portion of the 6.5% senior notes due 2016. The swaps were carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with a fair value adjustment to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The fair value adjustment to debt will be amortized through 2016 as a reduction to interest expense in conjunction with the maturity date of the notes.

On June 28, 2013, the Company entered into interest rate swap agreements effective July 1, 2013 to manage its interest rate exposure by swapping $100 million of fixed rate to variable rate exposure designated against our 4.2% senior notes due 2022. The swaps are carried at fair value and recorded as other assets or liabilities, with a fair value adjustment to long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

11. DEBT (continued)

 

Senior Credit Facility

In July 2011, the Company amended the credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) for the $800 million multi-currency senior revolving credit facility (the “Senior Revolving Credit Facility”) to extend the maturity to July 2016 and reduce the pricing. The Senior Revolving Credit Facility includes both borrowings and letters of credit. Borrowings under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility may be used for general corporate purposes and working capital. The Company has the discretion to borrow under multiple options, which provide for varying terms and interest rates including the United States prime rate or LIBOR plus a spread.

The Senior Revolving Credit Facility contains various covenants, including a maximum allowed leverage ratio and a minimum required interest expense coverage ratio that the Company believes are usual and customary for a senior unsecured credit agreement. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2013.

The Company had $4 million of letters of credit outstanding under the Senior Revolving Credit Facility at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012.

Receivables Securitization Facility

Included in long-term debt on the Consolidated Balance Sheets are amounts outstanding under a Receivables Purchase Agreement (the “RPA”) that are accounted for as secured borrowings in accordance with ASC 860, Accounting for Transfers and Servicing. Owens Corning Sales, LLC and Owens Corning Receivables LLC, each a subsidiary of the Company, have a $250 million RPA with certain financial institutions. The securitization facility was amended in the third quarter of 2013 to extend maturity to July 2016 and reduce the size of the facility to $200 million during the months of November, December, and January each year. At September 30, 2013, the Company utilized the full amount permitted under the terms of the RPA. The Company had $38 million and $37 million of letters of credit outstanding under the receivables securitization facility at September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

The RPA contains various covenants, including a maximum allowed leverage ratio and a minimum required interest expense coverage ratio that the Company believes are usual and customary for a securitization facility. The Company was in compliance with these covenants as of September 30, 2013.

Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s sole business consists of the purchase or acceptance through capital contributions of trade receivables and related rights from Owens Corning Sales, LLC and the subsequent retransfer of or granting of a security interest in such trade receivables and related rights to certain purchasers who are party to the RPA. Owens Corning Receivables LLC is a separate legal entity with its own separate creditors who will be entitled, upon its liquidation, to be satisfied out of Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s assets prior to any assets or value in Owens Corning Receivables LLC becoming available to Owens Corning Receivables LLC’s equity holders. The assets of Owens Corning Receivables LLC are not available to pay creditors of the Company or any other affiliates of the Company or Owens Corning Sales, LLC.

Short-Term Debt

At September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, short-term borrowings were $8 million and $5 million, respectively. The short-term borrowings for both periods consisted of various operating lines of credit and working capital facilities. Certain of these borrowings are collateralized by receivables, inventories or property. The borrowing facilities are typically for one-year renewable terms. The weighted average interest rate on short-term borrowings was approximately 5.5% for September 30, 2013, and 4.5% for December 31, 2012.

12. PENSION PLANS AND OTHER POSTRETIREMENT BENEFITS

Pension Plans

The Company sponsors defined benefit pension plans. Under the plans, pension benefits are based on an employee’s years of service and, for certain categories of employees, qualifying compensation. Company contributions to these pension plans are determined by an independent actuary to meet or exceed minimum funding requirements. In our U.S. plan prior to 2013 and in all of our Non-U.S plans, the unrecognized cost of any retroactive amendments and actuarial gains and losses are amortized over the average future service period of plan participants expected to receive benefits. As of January 1, 2013, an increase in the number of inactive participants in our U.S. plan resulted in substantially all of the plan participants being inactive. Accordingly, we elected to begin amortizing the unrecognized cost of any retroactive amendments and actuarial gains and losses over the average remaining life expectancy of the inactive participants as opposed to the average remaining service period of the active participants.

The following tables provide information regarding pension expense recognized (in millions):

Postemployment and Postretirement Benefits Other than Pension Plans

The Company maintains healthcare and life insurance benefit plans for certain retired employees and their dependents. The health care plans in the United States are non-funded and pay either (1) stated percentages of covered medically necessary expenses, after subtracting payments by Medicare or other providers and after stated deductibles have been met, or (2) fixed amounts of medical expense reimbursement.

13. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES AND OTHER MATTERS

Litigation

The Company is involved in various legal proceedings relating to employment, product liability and other matters (collectively, “Proceedings”). The Company regularly reviews the status of such Proceedings along with legal counsel. Liabilities for such Proceedings are recorded when it is probable that the liability has been incurred and when the amount of the liability can be reasonably estimated. Liabilities are adjusted when additional information becomes available. Management believes that the amount of any reasonably possible losses in excess of any amounts accrued, if any, with respect to such Proceedings or any other known claim, including the matters described below under the caption Environmental Matters (the “Environmental Matters”) will not be material to the Company’s financial statements. Management believes that the ultimate disposition of the Proceedings and the Environmental Matters will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s operations or financial condition taken as a whole.

Environmental Matters

We have been deemed by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) to be a Potentially Responsible Party (“PRP”) with respect to certain sites under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act. We have also been deemed a PRP under similar state or local laws and in other instances other PRPs have brought suits against us as a PRP for contribution under such federal, state, or local laws. At September 30, 2013, we had environmental remediation liabilities as a PRP at 20 sites where we have a continuing legal obligation to either complete remedial actions or contribute to the completion of remedial actions as part of a group of PRPs. For these sites we estimate a reserve to reflect environmental liabilities that have been asserted or are probable of assertion, in which liabilities are probable and reasonably estimable. At September 30, 2013, our reserve for such liabilities was $6 million.

Kearny, New Jersey Manufacturing Facility

During the week of October 29, 2012, the Company experienced a flood at its Kearny, New Jersey manufacturing facility as a result of Hurricane Sandy. This facility is insured for property damage and business interruption losses related to such events, subject to deductibles and policy limits. The Company believes that all costs/losses will be substantially covered by insurance; however, the timing of any recoveries may result in expenses being taken in periods before the insurance receipts

are recorded or received. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company incurred losses related to clean up activities and business interruption in the amount of $4 million reported in Cost of Sales and $9 million reported in Other (income) expenses, net, on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings, partially offset by $11 million of insurance proceeds recorded in Other (income) expenses, net, on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company incurred losses related to clean up activities and business interruption in the amount of $26 million reported in Cost of Sales and $16 million reported in Other (income) expenses, net, on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings, partially offset by $26 million of insurance proceeds recorded in Other (income) expenses, net, on the Consolidated Statements of Earnings.

 

14. STOCK COMPENSATION

2013 Stock Plan

On April 18, 2013, the Company’s stockholders approved the Owens Corning 2013 Stock Plan (the “2013 Stock Plan”) which replaced the 2010 Stock Plan. The 2013 Stock Plan authorizes grants of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, bonus stock awards and performance stock awards. Under the 2013 Stock Plan, 1.5 million shares of common stock may be granted in addition to the shares of Company common stock that rolled over from the 2010 Stock Plan as of April 18, 2013. Such shares of common stock include shares that were available but not granted, or which were granted but were not issued or delivered due to expiration, termination, cancellation or forfeiture of such awards. There will be no future grants made under the 2010 Stock Plan. At September 30, 2013 the number of shares remaining available under the 2013 Stock Plan for all stock awards was 3.4 million.

Stock Options

The Company has granted stock options under its stockholder approved stock plans. The Company calculates a weighted-average grant-date fair value using a Black-Scholes valuation model for options granted. Compensation expense for options is measured based on the fair market value of the option on the date of grant, and is recognized on a straight-line basis over a four year vesting period. In general, the exercise price of each option awarded was equal to the market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant and an option’s maximum term is 10 years. The volatility assumption was based on a benchmark study of our peers.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, 329,800 stock options were granted with a weighted-average grant date fair value of $18.94. Assumptions used in the Company’s Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the grant date fair value were expected volatility of 45.3%, expected dividends of 0%, expected term of 6.25 years and a risk-free interest rate of 1.2%.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized expense of $1 million and $4 million respectively, related to the Company’s stock options. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recognized expense of $1 million and $3 million respectively, related to the Company’s stock options. As of September 30, 2013, there was $9 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to stock options. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.68 years. The total aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding as of September 30, 2013 and 2012 was $25 million and $19 million.

Restricted Stock Awards and Restricted Stock Units

The Company has granted restricted stock awards and restricted stock units (collectively referred to as “restricted stock”) under its stockholder approved stock plans. Compensation expense for restricted stock is measured based on the market price of the stock at date of grant and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the four-year vesting period. Stock restrictions are subject to alternate vesting plans for death, disability, approved early retirement and involuntary termination, over various periods ending in 2017.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized expense of $4 million and $12 million respectively, related to the Company’s restricted stock. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recognized expense of $3 million and $11 million respectively. As of September 30, 2013, there was $28 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to restricted stock. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 2.75 years. The total fair value of shares vested during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 was $16 million and $11 million, respectively.

Performance Stock Awards and Performance Stock Units

The Company has granted performance stock awards and performance stock units (collectively referred to as “PSUs”) as a part of its long-term incentive plan. Outstanding grants issued in 2013 will be fully settled in stock and outstanding grants issued in 2011 and 2012 will be settled 50 percent in stock and 50 percent in cash. The amount of the stock and/or cash ultimately distributed is contingent on meeting various company or stockholder return goals.

Compensation expense for PSUs settled in stock is measured based on the grant date fair value and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Compensation expense for PSUs settled in cash is measured based on the fair value at the end of each quarter and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. Vesting will be accelerated in the case of death or disability, and awards earned will be paid at the end of the three-year period.

In the first nine months of 2013, the Company granted PSUs. The 2013 grants vest after a three-year period based on the Company’s total stockholder return relative to the performance of the companies in the S&P 500 Index for the respective three-year period. The amount of stock distributed will vary from 0% to 200% of PSUs awarded depending on the relative stockholder return performance.

For all PSUs, respectively during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized a gain of $1 million and an expense of $5 million. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company recognized expense of $5 million and $11 million, respectively, related to PSUs. As of September 30, 2013, there was $12 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to PSUs. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.86 years.

2013 Employee Stock Purchase Plan

On April 18, 2013, the Company’s stockholders approved the Owens Corning Employee Stock Purchase Plan (“ESPP”). The ESPP is a tax-qualified plan under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code. The purchase price of shares purchased under the ESPP is equal to 85% of the lower of the fair market value of shares of Owens Corning common stock at the beginning or ending of the offering period, which is a six-month period ending on May 31 and November 30 of each year. There are 2 million shares available for purchase under the ESPP as of its approval date. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company had expense of $0.4 million and $0.6 million respectively. As of September 30, 2013, there was less than $1 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to the ESPP.

15. EARNINGS PER SHARE (continued)

 

Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing earnings attributable to Owens Corning by the weighted-average number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding during the period. Outstanding shares consist of issued shares less treasury stock.

On April 25, 2012, the Company announced a new share buy-back program under which the Company is authorized to repurchase up to 10 million shares of the Company’s outstanding common stock (the “2012 Repurchase Program”). The 2012 Repurchase Program is in addition to the share buy-back program announced August 4, 2010, (the “2010 Repurchase Program” and collectively with the 2012 Repurchase Program, the “Repurchase Programs”). The Repurchase Programs authorize the Company to repurchase shares through the open market, privately negotiated, or other transactions. The actual number of shares repurchased will depend on timing, market conditions and other factors and will be at the Company’s discretion. We repurchased 1.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock for $54 million during the third quarter of 2013 under previously announced repurchase programs. As of September 30, 2013, 8.6 million shares remain available for repurchase under the authorized programs.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, the number of shares used in the calculation of diluted earnings per share did not include 0.2 million non-vested Restricted and Performance shares, 1.0 and 0.7 million of options to purchase common stock respectively, 17.5 million common equivalent shares from Series A Warrants or 7.8 million common equivalent shares from Series B Warrants due to their anti-dilutive effect.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, the number of shares used in the calculation of diluted earnings per share did not include 0.3 million options to purchase common stock, 17.5 million common equivalent shares from Series A Warrants or 7.8 million common equivalent shares from Series B Warrants due to their anti-dilutive effect.

 

16. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

Items Measured at Fair Value

The Company classifies and discloses assets and liabilities carried at fair value in one of the following three categories:

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

Cash equivalents, by their nature and less than 90 day maturity, utilize Level 1 inputs in determining fair value. Term deposits utilize Level 2 inputs in determining fair value based on their longer term maturity. Term deposits are included in other current assets on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company measures the value of its natural gas hedge contracts and foreign currency forward contracts using Level 2 inputs. The fair value of the Company’s natural gas hedges is determined by a mark to market valuation based on forward curves using observable market prices and the fair value of its foreign currency forward contracts is determined using observable market transactions in over-the-counter markets.

16. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT (continued)

 

Items Disclosed at Fair Value

Long-term notes receivable

The fair value has been calculated using the expected future cash flows discounted at market interest rates. The Company believes that the carrying amounts reasonably approximate the fair values of long-term notes receivable. Long-term notes receivable were $10 million and $53 million as of September 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012, respectively. The decline in the fair value of long-term notes receivable was due to the reclassification of a receivable to other current assets related to the 2011 sale of our Stone business.

Long-term debt

The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt has been calculated based on quoted market prices for the same or similar issues, or on the current rates offered to the Company for debt of the same remaining maturities.

As of September 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012, respectively, the Company’s 6.50% senior notes due 2016 were trading at approximately 113% and 112% of par value, the 9.00% senior notes due 2019 were trading at approximately 122% and 127% of par value, the 4.2% senior notes due 2022 were trading at approximately 97% and 102% of par value, and the 7.00% senior notes due 2036 were trading at approximately 109% and 109% of par value.

At September 30, 2013, and December 31, 2012, the Company determined that the book value of the remaining long-term debt instruments approximates market value. This approach, using level 1 inputs and utilizing indicative market rates for a new debt issuance, approximated the fair value of the remaining long-term debt at $370 million and $268 million respectively.

 

17. INCOME TAXES

Income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $26 million and $71 million, respectively. For the third quarter and year-to-date 2013, the Company’s effective tax rate was 34 percent and 37 percent, respectively. For both periods, the difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 35 percent is primarily attributable to various tax planning initiatives and the tax accounting treatment related to various locations which are currently in a loss position.

Income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, was a benefit of $14 million and an expense of $8 million, respectively. For the third quarter and year-to-date 2012, the Company’s effective tax rate was (47) percent and 17 percent, respectively. The third quarter 2012 effective tax rate is reflective of a cumulative adjustment attributable to lower estimated tax expense for 2012. For both periods, the difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory rate of 35 percent is primarily attributable to the tax accounting treatment related to various locations which are currently in a loss position and various tax planning initiatives.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

This Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) is intended to help investors understand Owens Corning, our operations and our present business environment. MD&A is provided as a supplement to, and should be read in conjunction with, our Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying Notes thereto contained in this report. Unless the context requires otherwise, the terms “Owens Corning,” “Company,” “we” and “our” in this report refer to Owens Corning and its subsidiaries.

GENERAL

Owens Corning is a leading global producer of glass fiber reinforcements and other materials for composites and of residential and commercial building materials. The Company’s business operations fall within two reportable segments, Composites and Building Materials. Composites includes our Reinforcements and Downstream businesses. Building Materials includes our Insulation and Roofing businesses. Through these lines of business, we manufacture and sell products worldwide. We maintain leading market positions in many of our major product categories.

EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW

We reported $106 million in earnings before interest and taxes (“EBIT”) for the third quarter 2013. We generated $119 million in adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (“Adjusted EBIT”) for the third quarter 2013. Third quarter EBIT in our Building Materials segment increased by $28 million and EBIT in our Composites segment increased by $10 million compared to the same period in 2012.

Restructuring actions initiated in 2012 represented $5 million of the amount adjusted out of reported EBIT to arrive at adjusted EBIT, with the majority of the charges related to the repositioning of our European assets in our Composites business. We have also adjusted out $6 million of charges related to cost reduction actions associated with closing and selling our Hangzhou, China Composites glass reinforcements facility further discussed in Note 8 and Note 10 of the Consolidated Financial Statements. Lastly, we have adjusted out $2 million of net losses related to a flood that occurred during October of 2012 in our Kearny, New Jersey roofing manufacturing facility as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The Company believes related costs and business interruption losses will be substantially covered by insurance. In the third quarter of 2013, we have reached full operating capacity at this facility and continue to service our customers without any interruption. See below for further information regarding adjusted EBIT, including the reconciliation to net earnings attributable to Owens Corning.

In our Composites segment, EBIT in the third quarter 2013 was $21 million compared to $11 million in the same period in 2012. The increase was primarily driven by lower plant start up and maintenance costs and improved capacity utilization.

In our Building Materials segment, EBIT in the third quarter 2013 was $114 million, compared to $86 million in the same period in 2012. In our Roofing business, EBIT increased $13 million due to higher selling prices and improved manufacturing productivity. Our Insulation business increased EBIT $15 million compared to the same period in 2012 on higher selling prices and sales volumes.

We maintain a strong balance sheet with ample liquidity. We have access to an $800 million senior revolving credit facility and a $250 million receivables securitization facility, both of which have a July 2016 maturity date. We have no significant debt maturities before 2016.

Year-to-date 2013, we have generated $163 million in cash flow from operating activities compared to $93 million over the same period of 2012. This improvement was primarily from improved earnings, partially offset by increased investment in working capital.

We repurchased 1.4 million shares of the Company’s common stock for $54 million during the third quarter of 2013 under previously announced repurchase programs. As of September 30, 2013, 8.6 million shares remain available for repurchase under the authorized programs.

The Consolidated Results discussion below provides a summary of our results and the trends affecting our business, and should be read in conjunction with the more detailed Segment Results discussion that follows.

NET SALES

Third quarter and year-to-date net sales increased $44 million and $4 million, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2012. For both the third quarter and year-to-date comparisons, the increase in net sales was mainly due to higher sales volumes in our Insulation business which were partially offset by lower sales volumes in our Roofing business.

GROSS MARGIN

Gross margin as a percentage of sales was higher in both the third quarter and year-to-date comparisons. In the third quarter, the increase was due to higher contribution margins across all of our businesses. For year-to-date 2013, higher Roofing and Insulation contribution margins were the primary drivers of the increase. In addition, gross margin included $4 million and $26 million of charges in the third quarter and year-to-date 2013, respectively, resulting from net losses related to Hurricane Sandy. Gross margin also included $5 million and $15 million of charges in the third quarter and year-to-date 2013, respectively resulting from our 2012 restructuring actions. This compares to $22 million and $73 million of charges in the third quarter and year-to-date 2012, respectively, related to our 2012 restructuring actions.

CHARGES RELATED TO COST REDUCTION ACTIONS

On September 13, 2013, we entered into an agreement to sell our Composites glass reinforcements facility in Hangzhou, China to the Hangzhou Municipal Land Reservation Center and the Development and Construction Management Office of Taoyuan New Zone of Gongshu District in Hangzhou. This sale is expected to be complete in the first half of 2014. As a result of this action, we recognized $6 million in charges related to cost reduction actions.

During 2012, we took actions to improve the competitive position of our global Composites manufacturing network through the closure or optimization of certain facilities, with our most significant actions taking place in France, Spain and Italy. These actions were primarily due to market conditions that led to lower capacity requirements within the European region. As a result of these actions, in addition to the charges recorded in cost of sales discussed above, we recognized $2 million in severance charges year-to-date 2013, none of which occurred in the third quarter, compared to $36 million for year-to-date 2012, none of which occurred in the third quarter. The total charges related to cost reduction actions and related items for the third quarter and year-to-date 2013 were $5 million and $17 million, respectively, compared to $22 million and $109 million for the third quarter and year-to-date 2012, respectively.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued)

 

EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST AND TAXES

EBIT increased by $47 million for the third quarter 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Third quarter EBIT in our Building Materials segment increased by $28 million and third quarter EBIT in our Composites segment increased by $10 million compared to the same period in 2012. Corporate EBIT losses for the third quarter decreased by $9 million, due primarily to the lower charges related to cost reduction actions and related items discussed above, compared to the same period in 2012. In addition to the Hurricane Sandy losses discussed above, corporate EBIT also included a net $2 million and $10 million gain in Other (income) expense, net for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2013, respectively. These gains were related to insurance proceeds that have been collected to date net of other Hurricane Sandy related expenses.

For year-to-date 2013, EBIT increased by $149 million compared to the same period in 2012. Year-to-date EBIT in our Building Materials segment increased by $90 million and year-to-date EBIT in our Composites segment decreased by $6 million compared to the same period in 2012. Corporate EBIT losses for year-to-date 2013 decreased by $65 million, due primarily to the lower charges related to cost reduction actions and related items discussed above, compared to the same period in 2012.

INTEREST EXPENSE, NET

Year-to-date 2013 interest expense was higher than in 2012 due primarily to higher average borrowing levels.
