Updating estimates. We have lowered our first quarter, second quarter and full year fiscal 2024 earnings per share estimates to $0.70, $1.04, and $4.25 from $0.83, $1.16, and $4.50, respectively. Our full year EBITDA estimate has been reduced to $96.1 million from $100.3 million. The revisions are due mostly to a negative first quarter impact from fluctuations in raw materials prices which we think could extend beyond the first quarter. While the first quarter is typically the company’s weakest, the company made some operational upgrades which may also have impacted efficiency and the mix of products sold during the quarter. Our third and fourth quarter fiscal year 2024 estimates are unchanged.

Impact of falling commodity prices. Raw material price fluctuations can impact Haynes’ results due to its product portfolio being solely high-end nickel and cobalt-based alloys. Production of these alloys generate a significant amount of scrap which is recycled but puts the commodity price risk associated with the scrap on the company and has an impact when market prices change. During the first quarter of fiscal 2024, nickel and cobalt futures prices fell 11.2% and 13.0%, respectively. Following the company’s fourth quarter 2023 earnings release on November 16 through the end of the quarter, nickel and cobalt future prices declined 3.6% and 13.1%, respectively, and have continued to weaken into January. As a reference point, Haynes’ fiscal year ends on September 30.
