Share:
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) today announced financial results for third quarter 2015. Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased with our third quarter results in light of currency headwinds and ongoing global economic uncertainties, particularly in emerging markets. Our unwavering dedication to our customers' success and focus on delivering high quality earnings enabled us to deliver year-over-year organic growth in sales and Adjusted EBITDA and generate solid free cash flow. In the third quarter, on an organic basis, net sales of $1.75 billion increased 2.7% and Adjusted EBITDA of $300 million increased 15.6%. Adjusted EBITDA margins of 17.2% expanded by 190 basis points with margin expansion across all divisions. For the full year 2015, we now estimate Net Sales of approximately $7.0 billion, Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.165 billion and Free Cash Flow of approximately $560 million. Given our free cash flow generation and share repurchase program, our forecast for Adjusted EPS for the full year 2015 is approximately $2.32 as compared to prior guidance of $2.24 to $2.28."

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare third quarter 2015 results to third quarter 2014 results. Year-over-year financial discussions present operating results as reported, and on an organic or constant dollar basis. Constant dollar refers to unit volume and price/mix performance and excludes the impact of currency translation from all periods referenced. Organic refers to unit volume and price/mix performance and excludes the impact of currency translation and the results from the divestiture of the North American foam trays and absorbent pads business ("divestiture"), which was divested on April 1, 2015, from all periods referenced. Additionally, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted financial measures, such as Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), Adjusted Net Earnings, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted EPS") and Core Tax Rate, exclude the impact of special items, such as restructuring charges, Venezuela remeasurement, cash-settled stock appreciation rights ("SARs") granted as part of the Diversey acquisition and certain other infrequent or one-time items. Please refer to the financial statements included with this press release for a reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP to U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Business and Financial Highlights

  • Food Care net sales of $836 million in the third quarter decreased 15.0% as reported. Currency had a negative impact on Food Care net sales of 12.8%, or $126 million, while the divestiture had a negative impact of 5.3%, or $52 million. Net sales increased 3.1% on an organic basis, which excludes the impact of currency translation and results from the divestiture, with favorable price/mix of 2.8% on relatively flat volume. Adjusted EBITDA was $168 million or 20.1% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 170 basis points compared to last year primarily due to favorable mix and price/cost spread and cost synergies, partially offset by unfavorable currency translation, higher expenses and the divestiture.
  • Diversey Care net sales of $502 million in the third quarter decreased 8.9% as reported and increased 3.9% on a constant dollar basis. Currency had a negative impact on Diversey Care net sales of 12.8%, or $71 million, in the quarter. Volume increased 2.5% and favorable price/mix was 1.4%. Diversey Care's Adjusted EBITDA was $66 million or 13.2% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 50 basis points compared to last year as a result of higher volumes, cost synergies and cost management, partially offset by unfavorable currency translation and price/cost & spread.
  • Product Care net sales of $385 million in the third quarter decreased 8.6% as reported and 1.7% on a constant dollar basis. Currency had a negative impact on Product Care net sales of 6.9%, or $29 million. Favorable price/mix of 0.8% was more than offset by a volume decline of 2.5%. Volume trends were negatively impacted by continued rationalization efforts and weakness in the manufacturing and electronics sectors. Adjusted EBITDA was $81 million or 21.1% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 340 basis points compared to last year as a result of favorable mix and price/cost spread and cost management, partially offset by lower sales volumes and unfavorable currency translation.
  • In alignment with the Company's disciplined approach to portfolio management and focus on innovation, Sealed Air recently announced the acquisition of B+ Equipment, a privately-held company headquartered in France, and the sale of its European trays business. B+ Equipment designs, manufactures and services automated packaging equipment for order fulfillment operations. This acquisition is not material to Sealed Air's consolidated financial results. Sealed Air also announced it had entered into an agreement to sell the European trays business to Faerch Plast A/S, a European food packaging solutions provider. This business is reported in Sealed Air's Food Care division and generated net sales of $71 million in 2014 and $44 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Third Quarter 2015 Summary

Third quarter 2015 net sales of $1.75 billion decreased 11.6% on a reported basis and was essentially unchanged on a constant dollar basis. Currency had a negative impact on net sales of 11.7% or $230 million. Adjusting for currency translation and the divestiture, net sales increased 2.7% on an organic basis. Favorable price/mix was 2.1% on higher volumes of 0.6%. Europe, Middle East and Africa was the fastest growing region, increasing net sales by 4.2% on a constant dollar basis. Latin America and Asia Pacific delivered constant dollar net sales growth of 3.1% and 2.7%, respectively. On an organic basis, North America delivered 1.2% net sales growth.

Third quarter 2015 net earnings on a reported basis were $87 million, or $0.42 per diluted share as compared to $61 million, or $0.28 per diluted share in the third quarter 2014. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2015 included $57 million of special items, primarily consisting of restructuring and other associated costs, as well as a tax reserve recorded in relation to the tax refund received on the Settlement agreement, partially offset by the release of certain tax reserves recorded at the time of the Diversey Holdings, Inc. acquisition, for which the statute of limitations has expired. Net earnings in the third quarter of 2014 included $51 million of special items, primarily consisting of restructuring and other associated costs, and loss on debt redemption and refinancing activities.

Adjusted EPS was $0.70 for the third quarter 2015. This compares to Adjusted EPS of $0.53 in the third quarter 2014. The Core Tax Rate was 18.8% in the third quarter 2015, compared to 28.0% in the third quarter 2014. The reduction in the Core Tax Rate was attributable to the recording of net foreign tax credits that were previously deemed not recognizable. During the third quarter 2015, the Company repurchased approximately 11.3 million shares for approximately $576 million. Year-to-date through October 23, 2015, the Company has repurchased 14.5 million shares for approximately $726 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2015 was $300.0 million, or 17.2% of net sales, compared to $302.3 million, or 15.3% of net sales, in third quarter 2014. Currency had a negative impact on Adjusted EBITDA of $39 million. Adjusted EBITDA margins expanded 190 basis points compared to last year. The year-over-year margin increase was primarily attributable to favorable mix and price/cost spread, cost synergies, partially offset by unfavorable currency translation and the impact of the divestiture.

Cash Flow and Net Debt

Cash flow provided by operating activities in the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $679 million. In March 2015, the Company received a tax refund of $235 million related to the payment of funds in connection with the Settlement agreement (as defined in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014). Excluding the tax refund, cash flow provided by operating activities in the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $444 million, which is net of $72 million of restructuring and $20 million of SARs payments. This compares with cash used by operating activities of $465 million in the nine months ended 2014, which is net of $76 million of restructuring, $18 million of SARs payments and $930 million related to the Settlement agreement. Capital expenditures were $112 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to $94 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Free Cash Flow, defined as net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures, was an inflow of $331 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $371 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014, excluding the Settlement agreement. The year-over-year decline was attributable to unfavorable currency impact, changes in working capital and other assets and liabilities, and higher capital expenditures, partially offset by lower interest payments and higher earnings.

Compared to December 31, 2014, the Company's net debt increased $224 million to $4.3 billion as of September 30, 2015. This increase was primarily a result of amounts paid for share repurchases and dividends, partially offset by cash reflecting the tax refund related to the Settlement agreement payment and cash generated from operating activities.

Updated Outlook for Full Year 2015

Consistent with the presentation of the Company's outlook last quarter, the forecast provided below includes one quarter of financial results from North America trays and pads business, which closed on April 1, 2015.

The Company estimates net sales to be approximately $7.0 billion for the full year 2015, which assumes an unfavorable impact of approximately 10% from foreign currency translation. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and the impact of the divestiture, net sales are expected to increase approximately 3% on an organic basis.

Adjusted EBITDA is estimated to be approximately $1.165 billion, which reflects the divestiture and includes approximately $125 million of unfavorable currency translation.

The Company is increasing its forecast for Adjusted EPS to approximately $2.32 from its previously provided outlook in the range of $2.24 to $2.28. The Adjusted EPS increase reflects share repurchases through October 23, 2015. Adjusted EPS guidance excludes the impact of special items. The Company's expected Core Tax Rate for 2015 of approximately 25% is unchanged from prior forecast.

Free Cash Flow is expected to be approximately $560 million as compared to previously provided guidance of $585 million. The reduction is primarily related to an increase in working capital, partially offset by lower capital expenditures and cash restructuring payments. The Company anticipates capital expenditures of approximately $190 million and cash restructuring payments of approximately $110 million. This outlook excludes the tax refund of approximately $235 million received in March 2015 related to the Settlement agreement payment.

Non-U.S. GAAP Information

In this press release and supplement, we have included several non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Net Earnings and EPS, net sales on a "constant dollar" or "organic" basis, Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted Operating Profit, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Core Tax Rate, as our management believes these measures are useful to investors. We present results and guidance, adjusted to exclude the effects of certain specified items ("special items") and their related tax impact that would otherwise be included under U.S. GAAP, to aid in comparisons with other periods or prior guidance. In addition, non-U.S. GAAP measures are used by management to review and analyze our operating performance and, along with other data, as internal measures for setting annual budgets and forecasts, assessing financial performance, providing guidance and comparing our financial performance with our peers and may also be used for purposes of determining incentive compensation. The non-U.S. GAAP information has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP information. It does not purport to represent any similarly titled U.S. GAAP information and is not an indicator of our performance under U.S. GAAP. Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that we present may not be comparable with similarly titled measures used by others. Investors are cautioned against placing undue reliance on these non-U.S. GAAP measures. For a reconciliation of these non-U.S. GAAP measures to U.S. GAAP and other important information on our use of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, see the attached supplementary information entitled "Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows" (under the section entitled "Non-U.S. GAAP Free Cash Flow"), "Reconciliation of U.S. GAAP Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations to Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted EBITDA," "Segment Information," "Reconciliation of Non-U.S. GAAP Total Company Adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP Net Earnings from Continuing Operations," "Components of Change in Net Sales by Segment," and "Components of Changes in Net Sales by Region." Information reconciling forward-looking non-U.S. GAAP measures to U.S. GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

_______________

(1) The supplementary information included in this press release for 2015 is preliminary and subject to change prior to the filing of our upcoming Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(2) During the fourth quarter of 2014, we changed the method of valuing our inventories that used the Last In First Out ("LIFO") method to the First In First Out ("FIFO") method, so that all of our inventories are now valued at FIFO. We applied this change in accounting principle retrospectively. Accordingly all previously reported financial information has been revised. The impact of the change on net earnings was not material.

(3) The remaining amount of unvested cash-settled stock appreciation rights ("SARs") fully vested March 31, 2015. However, we will continue to incur expense related to these SARs until the last expiration date of these awards (March 2021). The amount of related future expense will fluctuate based on exercise and forfeiture activity and changes in the assumptions used in the valuation model, including the price of Sealed Air common stock.

(4) Based on changes to the Venezuelan currency exchange rate mechanisms, in the first quarter of 2014, we changed the exchange rate we used to remeasure our Venezuelan subsidiaries' financial statements into U.S. dollars. As a result, as of September 30, 2014 our excess cash position in our Venezuelan subsidiaries was remeasured at the SICAD 2 rate resulting in a $4 million and $19 million loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014. As of September 30, 2015, based on further changes in the Venezuelan exchange rate mechanisms and our specific facts and circumstances, we changed the rate used to remeasure all of our Bolivar denominated net monetary assets to the SIMADI rate of 199.4204. As a result of the change, we recorded a remeasurement loss of $1 million and $31 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.

(5) As previously disclosed in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2014, on February 3, 2014 we funded the cash consideration ($930 million) and issued the shares reserved under the Settlement agreement as defined therein. As a result, we recognized a gain on Claims Settlement of $21 million, which primarily consisted of the release of certain tax and other liabilities.

(6) In June 2015, we issued $400 million of 5.5% senior notes due 2025 and €400 million of 4.5% senior notes due 2023 and used the net proceeds of these notes to retire the existing $750 million of 8.375% senior notes due 2021. The aggregate repurchase price was $866 million, which primarily included the principle amount of $750 million, premium of $99 million and accrued interest of $17 million. We recognized a total net pre-tax loss of $111 million in the three months ended June 30, 2015, which included the premiums mentioned above. Also included in the loss on debt redemption was $11 million of accelerated amortization of original non-lender fees related to the 8.375% senior notes.

(7) In April 2015, we completed the sale of our North American foam trays and absorbent pads business for a gain of $29 million.

(8) Net earnings per common share is calculated under the two-class method. See our Annual Report on Form 10-K for period ended December 31, 2014 for further details.

Certain other reclassifications have been made to prior year numbers to conform to current year presentation.

(3) 2015 primarily consists of loss on bond redemption of $111 million, depreciation and amortization of $162 million, share-based compensation expense of $49 million, and a remeasurement loss of $31 million partially offset by a gain on sale of business of $(35) million. 2014 primarily consists of depreciation and amortization of $242 million, profit sharing expense of $30 million, loss on debt redemption and refinancing activities of $19 million and the development grant matter of $14 million and a remeasurement loss of $19 million, partially offset by gain on Settlement agreement of $(21) million.

(4) During the first quarter of 2015, the Company received the tax refund of $235 million related to the Settlement agreement payment. During the first quarter of 2014, we used $930 million of cash to fund the cash portion of the Settlement agreement and related accrued interest. To fund the cash payment, we used $555 million of cash and cash equivalents and utilized borrowings of $260 million from our revolving credit facility and $115 million from our accounts receivable securitization programs.

(5) During the second quarter of 2015, we completed the sale of our North American foam trays and absorbent pads business for net cash proceeds of $76 million, resulting in the recording of a $29 million gain.

(6) Free cash flow does not represent residual cash available for discretionary expenditures, including mandatory debt servicing requirements or non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted from this measure.

(7) Interest payments in 2014 include $417 million related to the Settlement agreement.

(1) The supplementary information included in this press release for 2015 is preliminary and subject to change prior to the filing of our upcoming Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(2) Our price/mix reported above includes the net impact of our pricing actions and rebates as well as the period-to-period change in the mix of products sold. Also included in our reported price/mix is the net effect of some of our customers purchasing our products in non-U.S. dollar or euro denominated countries at selling prices denominated in U.S. dollars or euros. This primarily arises when we export products from the U.S. and euro-zone countries.

(3) Changes in these items excluding the impact of foreign currency translation are non-U.S. GAAP financial measures. Since we are a U.S. domiciled company, we translate our foreign-currency-denominated financial results into U.S. dollars. Due to changes in the value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar, translating our financial results from foreign currencies to U.S. dollars may result in a favorable or unfavorable impact. It is important that we take into account the effects of foreign currency translation when we view our results and plan our strategies. Nonetheless, we cannot control changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Consequently, when our management looks at our financial results to measure the core performance of our business, we exclude the impact of foreign currency translation by translating our current period results at prior period foreign currency exchange rates. We also may exclude the impact of foreign currency translation when making incentive compensation determinations. As a result, our management believes that these presentations are useful internally and may be useful to our investors.
