SPOKANE, Wash., July 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PotlatchDeltic Corporation (Nasdaq:PCH) today reported net income of $46.1 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, on revenues of $268.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights

-- Consolidated Adjusted EBITDDA of $94.2 million and Adjusted EBITDDA margin of 35.1% -- Wood Products Adjusted EBITDDA of $51.5 million and Wood Products Adjusted EBITDDA margin of 26.6% -- On track with $50 million in after-tax annual cash synergy run rate in year two after the merger with Deltic Timber; achieved $40 million annual run rate as of June 30, 2018 -- Standard and Poor’s Global Rating (S&P) upgraded PotlatchDeltic to BBB- (investment grade); PotlatchDeltic is investment grade rated by both S&P and Moody’s Investor Services

“Our merger with Deltic Timber was perfectly timed as the combined set of assets benefitted from the historic run in lumber prices in the second quarter,” said Mike Covey, chairman and chief executive officer. “This was reflected by the significant increase in Adjusted EBITDDA for Wood Products and the total company. Lumber prices are pulling back from an all-time peak but are still robust. This is shaping up to be an extremely strong year for PotlatchDeltic by many measures,” stated Mr. Covey.
