Organization Consolidation And Presentation Of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Basis of Presentation

Note 1 - Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared by TimkenSteel Corporation (the Company or TimkenSteel) in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) and disclosures considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. For further information, refer to TimkenSteel’s audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Customer Receivables

The Company’s accounts receivables arise from sales to customers across all end markets.  Historically, TimkenSteel’s allowance for doubtful accounts write-offs have been immaterial.  The allowance for doubtful account reserve has been established using qualitative and quantitative methods.  In general, account balances greater than one year of age or sent to third party collection are fully reserved.  Account balances for customers that are viewed as higher risk are also analyzed for a reserve.  In addition to these methods, the allowance for doubtful accounts in 2020 was adjusted for forward looking uncollectible balances, primarily in the energy and automotive end markets. The amount recorded was based on the Company’s assessment of the risk presented to customers in these end markets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as geo-political factors facing the energy end market. At this time, the full impact of COVID-19 is difficult to predict due to uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and the timeline for economic activities to fully recover.

Change in Accounting Principle

During the fourth quarter of 2019, TimkenSteel elected to change its method for valuing its inventories that previously used the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method to the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The Company believes that the FIFO method is preferable as it improves comparability with its peers, more closely resembles the physical flow of its inventory and aligns with how the Company internally manages the business. The effects of the change in accounting principle from LIFO to FIFO were retrospectively applied. As a result of the retrospective application of the change in accounting principle, certain financial statement line items in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of June 30, 2019 and the consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income (loss), shareholders’ equity and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 were adjusted as necessary. For further information, refer to TimkenSteel’s audited Consolidated Financial Statements and Notes included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

The following tables reflect the impact to the financial statement line items as a result of the change in accounting principle for the prior periods presented in the accompanying financial statements (dollars in millions, except per share data):

Restructuring Charges

Note 4 - Restructuring Charges

During 2019 and the first half of 2020, TimkenSteel made organizational changes to enhance profitable and sustainable growth. These company-wide actions included the restructuring of its business support functions, the reduction of management layers throughout the organization, the closure of the TimkenSteel Material Services (TMS) facility in Houston, Texas and other actions to further improve the Company’s overall cost structure. Through these restructuring efforts, to date the Company has eliminated approximately 180 salaried positions and recognized restructuring charges of $9.5 million, primarily consisting of severance and employee-related benefits. Approximately 20 of these positions were eliminated in the first half of 2020. TimkenSteel recorded reserves for such restructuring charges as other current liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The reserve balance at June 30, 2020 is expected to be substantially used in the next twelve months.

The following is a summary of the restructuring reserve for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:

Disposition of Non-Core Assets

Note 5 - Disposition of Non-Core Assets

During the first quarter of 2020, management completed its previously announced plan to close the Company’s TMS facility in Houston, and initiated a plan to market and sell the assets at the facility.  Accelerated depreciation and amortization of $1.6 million was recorded in the first quarter to reduce the net book value of the machinery and equipment to its expected fair value.  Subsequent to the closure, certain assets were sold and a gain on sale of $1.0 million and $4.2 million was recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively.  At June 30, 2020, the remaining associated machinery and equipment, with a net book value of $2.1 million, was classified as held for sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheet.  The land and buildings associated with TMS were not classified as held for sale, as they were not considered available for immediate sale in their present condition. While the Company began selling the inventory associated with TMS in the first quarter of 2020 at prices that were in line with the net realizable value of the inventory established in the fourth quarter of 2019, excess inventory related to our Energy end-market sector resulted in an additional reserve of approximately $3.1 million being recorded in the second quarter of 2020. The excess inventory is the result of continued weakness in this end-market sector, as well as recent closures of several distributors that were holding considerable amounts of similar inventory.

Non-service benefit income is derived from the Company’s pension and other postretirement plans. The Company’s expected return on assets has exceeded the interest cost component, resulting in income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.

The TimkenSteel Corporation Retirement Plan (Salaried Plan) has a provision that permits employees to elect to receive their pension benefits in a lump sum. In the first quarter of 2020, the cumulative cost of all lump sum payments was projected to exceed the sum of the service cost and interest cost components of net periodic pension cost for the Salaried Plan. As a result, the Company completed a full remeasurement of its pension obligations and plan assets associated with the Salaried Plan as of June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, which resulted in a non-cash (gain) loss from remeasurement of ($1.9) million and $7.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. For more details on the remeasurement, refer to “Note 11 - Retirement and Postretirement Plans.”

Income Tax Provision

Note 7 - Income Tax Provision

TimkenSteel’s provision for income taxes in interim periods is computed by applying the appropriate estimated annual effective tax rates to income or loss before income taxes for the period. In addition, non-recurring or discrete items, including interest on prior-year tax liabilities, are recorded during the periods in which they occur.

In light of TimkenSteel’s operating performance in the U.S. and current industry conditions, the Company assessed its U.S. deferred tax assets and concluded, based upon all available evidence, that it was more likely than not that it would not realize the assets. As a result, the Company maintains a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets in the U.S. and applicable foreign countries until sufficient positive evidence exists to conclude that a valuation allowance is not necessary. Going forward, the need to maintain valuation allowances against deferred tax assets in the U.S. and other affected countries will cause variability in the Company’s effective tax rate. The majority of TimkenSteel’s income taxes are derived from foreign operations.

On March 27, 2020, the President of the United States signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security ("CARES") Act, an economic stimulus package intended to provide support, principally in the form of tax benefits, to companies and individuals negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the majority of the provisions included in the CARES Act will not immediately benefit the Company from a cash tax perspective due to its significant net operating losses, the Company has taken advantage of the deferral of the employer share (6.2% of employee wages) of Social Security payroll taxes that would otherwise have been owed from the date of enactment of the legislation through December 31, 2020, as afforded by the Act. Through June 30, 2020, the Company has deferred $2.0 million in cash payments, and expects additional deferred cash payments of approximately $4 million to $5 million for the remainder of 2020, with total deferred amounts to be paid in two equal installments at December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating its eligibility and potential benefit related to the Employee Retention Credit.

Earnings Per Share [Abstract]  
Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Note 8 - Earnings (Loss) Per Share

Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the dilutive effect of common share equivalents calculated using the treasury stock method or if-converted method. For the Convertible Notes, the Company utilizes the if-converted method to calculate diluted earnings (loss) per share. Under the if-converted method, the Company adjusts net earnings to add back interest expense (including amortization of debt discount) recognized on the Convertible Notes and includes the number of shares potentially issuable related to the Convertible Notes in the weighted average shares outstanding. Treasury stock is excluded from the denominator in calculating both basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share.

Common share equivalents for shares issuable for equity-based awards were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive. Common share equivalents for shares issuable upon the conversion of outstanding convertible notes were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 because the effect of their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the numerator and the denominator of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:

The initial value of the principal amount recorded as a liability at the date of issuance was $66.9 million, using an effective interest rate of 12.0%. The remaining $19.4 million of principal amount was allocated to the conversion feature and recorded as a component of shareholders’ equity at the date of issuance. This amount represents a discount to the debt to be amortized through interest expense using the effective interest method through the maturity of the Convertible Notes.  Transaction costs were allocated to the liability and equity components based on their relative values. Transaction costs attributable to the liability component of $2.4 million are amortized to interest expense over the term of the Convertible Notes, and transaction costs attributable to the equity component of $0.7 million are included in shareholders’ equity.  The Convertible Notes mature on June 1, 2021, and accordingly are classified as a current liability in the Consolidated Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2020.

Amended Credit Agreement

On October 15, 2019, the Company, as borrower, and certain domestic subsidiaries of the Company, as subsidiary guarantors, entered into a Third Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the Amended Credit Agreement), with JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent (the Administrative Agent), Bank of America, N.A., as syndication agent, and the other lenders party thereto (collectively, the Lenders), which further amended and restated the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of January 26, 2018. The interest rate under the Amended Credit Agreement was 1.7% as of June 30, 2020. The amount available for borrowings under the credit agreement as of June 30, 2020 was $176.4 million. As of June 30, 2020, the Company was in compliance with all covenants.

Fair Value Measurement

The fair value of the Convertible Notes was approximately $72.6 million as of June 30, 2020. The fair value of the Convertible Notes, which falls within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy as defined by Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 820, Fair Value Measurements, is based on the last price traded in June 2020.

TimkenSteel’s Credit Agreement is variable-rate debt. As such, the carrying value is a reasonable estimate of fair value as interest rates on these borrowings approximate current market rates. This valuation falls within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy and is based on quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets that are observable either directly or indirectly.

Interest Paid

The total cash interest paid for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was $4.1 million and $6.1 million, respectively.
