Sealed Air Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

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

Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) today announced financial results for third quarter 2016. Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "In the third quarter, we delivered strong margin performance and cash flow generation as a result of our operating discipline and focus on working capital management. As we were expecting, we experienced notable increasing demand for our protein packaging, e-Commerce and advanced hygiene solutions in North America and targeted countries throughout Europe and Asia. These positive trends were offset by macro headwinds in emerging countries, Australia and the industrial market. Despite softer sales growth in the quarter and for the full year 2016, we continue to expect performance to improve on both the top and bottom line in Q4 and throughout 2017 as we continue building a robust pipeline for our innovative solutions and capitalize on end market growth opportunities."

Peribere continued, "Since 2013, we have made significant progress improving the quality of earnings, delivering leading innovations to our customers, and building a performance-based winning culture. As we look beyond 2016, we believe pursuing a tax-free spin-off of Diversey Care and our related hygiene business is the next step in our strategic transformation and will enable us to unlock meaningful value for customers and shareholders. This transaction would create two industry-leading, publicly-traded companies with unique and compelling investment opportunities, accelerated growth strategies and disciplined, returns-based approaches to capital allocation."

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare third quarter 2016 results to third quarter 2015 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, which was divested on April 1, 2015, and the divestiture of the European food trays business in November 2015 (together "divestitures"), 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 Adjusted Tax Rate, exclude the impact of special items, such as restructuring charges, charges related to ceasing operations in Venezuela, 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.

Third Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Food Care net sales of $815 million decreased 2.6% as reported. Currency had a negative impact on Food Care net sales of 2.0%, or $17 million, and the divestiture had a negative impact of 1.8%, or $15 million. On an organic basis, net sales increased 1.2% due to favorable price/mix of 1.3% and relatively flat volume growth. Volume growth of more than 3% in North America and positive trends in EMEA were offset by weakness in Latin America, and Asia Pacific. Adjusted EBITDA of $173 million or 21.2% of net sales was attributable to favorable price/cost spread and restructuring savings, which were partially offset by higher non-material manufacturing expenses, unfavorable currency translation and divestitures of non-core assets.
  • Diversey Care net sales of $497 million decreased 0.8% as reported and increased 1.5% on a constant dollar basis. Currency had a negative impact on Diversey Care net sales of 2.3%, or $12 million in the quarter. Price/mix of 2.8%, which was favorable across all the regions, was partially offset by lower volumes of 1.3%. North America, Europe and Asia Pacific delivered positive volume trends that were offset by declines in MEA and Latin America. Diversey Care's Adjusted EBITDA was $65 million or 13.0% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA performance was attributable to favorable price/cost spread and restructuring savings, which were offset by targeted investments in marketing and research and development, salary and wage inflation and lower volumes.
  • Product Care net sales of $389 million in the third quarter were relatively flat as reported and on a constant dollar basis. Currency had a negative impact on Product Care net sales of 0.5%, or $2 million. Sales volume increased 2.6%, which was offset by unfavorable price/mix of 2.3%. North America volumes were up 6% as a result of continued strength in e-Commerce offset by rationalization efforts and ongoing weakness in the industrial market. Adjusted EBITDA was $88 million or 22.7% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA performance was primarily related to higher volumes.

Tax-Free Spin-Off of Diversey Care and Related Hygiene Business

On October 17, 2016, Sealed Air announced a plan to pursue the tax-free spin-off of its Diversey Care division and the food hygiene and cleaning business within its Food Care division (together "New Diversey"). The tax-free spin-off would create two independent companies, New Sealed Air (the remaining Sealed Air business) and New Diversey, each with an enhanced strategic focus, simplified operating structure, distinct investment identity and strong financial profile.

Under the spin-off plan, if effectuated, Sealed Air's shareholders would own 100% of the common stock of New Diversey following completion of the spin-off. The spin-off company would be led by Dr. Ilham Kadri, currently President of Diversey Care. The transaction is expected to be completed in the second half of 2017, subject to final approval by Sealed Air's Board of Directors, as well as satisfaction of customary conditions, including the effectiveness of appropriate filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and it is intended to qualify as a tax-free distribution to Sealed Air shareholders for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Sealed Air anticipates filing a Form 10 relating to the transaction with the SEC as early as the first quarter of 2017.

Third Quarter 2016 U.S. GAAP Summary

Net sales of $1.7 billion decreased 1.7% on an as reported basis. Currency had a negative impact on total net sales of 1.8%, or $31 million, and the Food Care divestitures had a negative impact on total sales of 0.8%, or $15 million, in the third quarter 2016. As reported, net sales in North America increased 1.6%, EMEA declined 5.8% and Latin America and Asia Pacific also declined 2.9% and 0.6%, respectively.

Net income on a reported basis was $163 million, or $0.83 per diluted share as compared to $87 million, or $0.42 per diluted share in the third quarter 2015. Net earnings in the third quarter 2016 were favorably impacted by $24 million of special items, primarily related to the release of certain tax reserves, as described more fully below, partially offset by restructuring charges and other restructuring associated costs. Net earnings in the third quarter 2015 included $57 million of special items, primarily consisting of restructuring and other restructuring associated costs, as well as a tax reserve recorded in relation to the tax refund received on the Settlement agreement (as defined in our 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K), 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 had expired.

The effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2016 was 5.5%, compared to the effective tax rate of 31.3% in the third quarter of 2015. The effective tax rate was favorably impacted by $32 million related to the release of certain tax reserves recorded at the time of the Diversey Holdings, Inc. acquisition, for which the statute of limitations had expired.

Third Quarter 2016 Non-U.S. GAAP Summary

Net sales on an organic basis increased 0.9%. On a constant dollar basis, Latin America was up 8.7% followed by North America, which delivered constant dollar sales growth of 1.6%. Volume growth in North America and Europe were offset by declines in MEA and Asia Pacific. Organic sales in EMEA and Asia Pacific declined 0.5% and 3.1%, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2016 was $304 million, or 17.7% of net sales. This margin performance was attributable to a favorable price/cost spread and restructuring savings, partially offset by $4 million of unfavorable currency translation, divestitures of $3 million as well as salary and wage inflation and higher non-material manufacturing expenses.

Adjusted EPS was $0.71 for the third quarter 2016. This compares to Adjusted EPS of $0.70 in the third quarter 2015. The Adjusted Tax Rate was 23.1% in the third quarter 2016, compared to 18.8% in the third quarter 2015. The Adjusted Tax Rate in the third quarter of 2016 was negatively impacted by an increase in valuation allowances on foreign tax credits.

Cash Flow and Net Debt

Cash flow provided by operating activities in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $470 million, which is net of $51 million of restructuring payments. This compares with cash provided by operating activities of $701 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015. In March 2015, the Company received a tax refund of $235 million related to the payment of funds in connection with the Settlement agreement. Excluding the tax refund, cash flow provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2015 was $466 million, which is net of $72 million of restructuring and $20 million of SARs payments.

Capital expenditures increased to $190 million, as planned, in the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and compared to $112 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Free Cash Flow, defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating less capital expenditures, was an inflow of $280 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. This compares to an inflow of $353 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2015, excluding the tax refund related to the payment of funds in connection with the Settlement agreement.

Compared to December 31, 2015, the Company's net debt increased $132 million to $4.3 billion as of September 30, 2016. This increase in borrowings primarily resulted from a use of working capital, higher capital expenditures, and amounts paid for share repurchases and dividends.

During the third quarter 2016, the Company repurchased approximately 3.5 million shares for approximately $165 million, and paid cash dividends of $31 million. In the nine month ended September 30, 2016, the Company repurchased 4.7 million shares for approximately $217 million, and paid cash dividends of $90 million.

Updated Outlook for Full Year 2016*

For the full year 2016, the Company expects to achieve Net Sales of approximately $6.8 billion and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.17 billion. Currency is expected to have a negative impact of approximately $225 million on net sales and $35 million on Adjusted EBITDA. The outlook for Adjusted EPS is expected to be approximately $2.60. The outlook assumes an Adjusted Tax Rate of 24%. Adjusted EPS guidance excludes the impact of special items. The Company continues to anticipate 2016 Free Cash Flow to be approximately $550 million, including capital expenditures of approximately $275 million and cash restructuring payments of approximately $90 million.

Website Information

We routinely post important information for investors on our website, www.sealedair.com, in the "Investor Relations" section. We use this website as a means of disclosing material, non-public information and for complying with our disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor the Investor Relations section of our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, presentations and webcasts. The information contained on, or that may be accessed through, our website is not incorporated by reference into, and is not a part of, this document.

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 Adjusted EPS, net sales on a "constant dollar" or "organic" basis, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted 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 Net Earnings and U.S. GAAP Net Earnings Per Share to Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings and Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings Per Share" "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," "Components of Changes in Net Sales by Region," "Components of Organic Change in Net Sales by Segment," and "Components of Organic 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.

*We have not provided guidance for the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, as they are not available without unreasonable effort due to the high variability, complexity, and low visibility with respect to certain special items, including gains and losses on the disposition of businesses, the ultimate outcome of certain legal or tax proceedings, foreign currency gains or losses resulting from the volatile currency market in Venezuela, and other unusual gains and losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to our results computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

_______________________

(1)   The supplementary information included in this press release for 2016 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) Due to the ongoing challenging economic situation in Venezuela, the Company approved a program in the second quarter of 2016 to cease operations in the country. This resulted in total costs of $52.1 million being incurred which included a voluntary reduction in headcount including severance and termination benefits for employees of approximately $0.3 million recorded in restructuring and other charges, depreciation and amortization expense related to fixed assets and intangibles of approximately $4.8 million recorded in selling, general and administrative expenses, inventory reserves of $1.0 million recorded in costs of sales and the release of cumulative translation adjustment of approximately $46.0 million recorded in charges related to Venezuelan subsidiaries.
(3) The remaining amount of cash-settled stock appreciation rights ("SARs") were fully vested as of March 31, 2015. However, we will continue to incur expense related to these SARs until the last expiration date of these awards (February 2020). 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 2015, we changed the exchange rate we used to remeasure our Venezuelan subsidiaries' financial statements into U.S. dollars. Starting June 30, 2015 through to December 31, 2015, we concluded that we would use the SIMADI rate to remeasure our bolivar denominated monetary assets and liabilities since it was our only legally available option and at that time, our intent on a go-forward basis to utilize this market to settle any future transactions based on the then current facts and circumstances. As a result of this evaluation, we recorded a remeasurement loss of $1 million and $31 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.
In the first quarter of 2016, based on further changes in the Venezuelan exchange rate mechanisms whereby the SIMADI rate was eliminated and replaced by the DICOM rate, we used the DICOM rate to remeasure our bolivar denominated monetary assets and liabilities. As a result of this evaluation, the Company reported a remeasurement loss of less than $1 million and $3 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively.
(5) 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.
(6) In April 2015, we completed the sale of our North American foam trays and absorbent pads business for a gain of $29 million. In November 2015, we completed the sale of our European food trays business for a pre-tax loss of $13 million and reported an additional loss of $1.6 million in 2016.
(7) The Company early adopted ASU 2016-09 on a prospective basis as required, related to the recognition of excess tax benefits to the income statement which were previously recorded in additional paid-in capital, effective January 1, 2016. This resulted in an additional 377,130 and 370,090 diluted weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, and recognition of excess tax benefits of $1.8 million and $12.4 million in income tax provision for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. As a result, net earnings per share increased by $0.01 per share and $0.06 per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively.
(8) Net earnings per common share are calculated under the two-class method. See our Annual Report on Form 10-K for year ended December 31, 2015 for more information on the two-class method.

_______________________

(1)   The supplementary information included in this press release for 2016 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.
(4) As of January 1, 2016, our Kevothermal business was moved from Other to our Product Care division. This resulted in a reclassification of $4.6 million of net sales and $0.9 million of adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2015.

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.
(4) As of January 1, 2016, our Kevothermal business was moved from Other to our Product Care division. This resulted in a reclassification of $10.3 million of net sales and $2.3 million of adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.
