Sealed Air Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results

  • Adjusted EBITDA Increased 8.4% to $300 Million or 15.2% of Net Sales
  • 2014 Adjusted EPS of $0.52 Increased 24%; Reported EPS of $0.28
  • Company Raises 2014 Outlook for Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Free Cash Flow

CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2014-- Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE) today announced financial results for the third quarter 2014. Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our financial and operational performance in the third quarter exceeded our expectations across all key metrics. Net sales increased 3.6% on a constant dollar basis, Adjusted EBITDA margin surpassed 15%, and Adjusted EPS increased 24%. Adjusted gross profit margin increased 120 basis points as a result of our continued disciplines and value-added selling approach across all regions and divisions. Despite macro-economic uncertainties, currency headwinds and volume declines in the North American protein market, we are increasing our 2014 outlook for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS and expect to generate approximately $540 million in free cash flow.”

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare third quarter 2014 results to third quarter 2013 results and are presented on a continuing operations basis. The Rigid Medical Packaging business, which the Company sold in December 2013, has been presented as discontinued operations. Reported information is defined as U.S. GAAP. Year-over-year net sales discussions present both reported and constant dollar performance. Constant dollar sales performance excludes the impact of currency translation. 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 Tax Rate, exclude the impact of special items, such as restructuring charges, cash-settled stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) granted as part of the Diversey acquisition and certain other one-time items.

Business and Financial Highlights

  • Net sales in the Food Care division of $983 million increased 3.4% compared to last year and 3.9% on a constant dollar basis. The increase in net sales was due to favorable price/mix of 4.0% on volumes that were essentially unchanged compared to last year. Food Care delivered sales growth in all regions on an as reported basis and in constant dollars. Adjusted EBITDA increased 11.1% to $178 million, or 18.1% of net sales. This increase was due to favorable mix and price/cost spread as well as cost synergies, partially offset by non-material inflation.
  • The Diversey Care division reported net sales of $551 million, a 3.5% increase compared to last year. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased 3.9% with a volume increase of 3.7% and favorable price/mix of 0.2%. Latin America increased 15% on a constant currency basis and 4% on an as reported basis. AMAT increased 12% on a constant currency basis and 10% on a reported currency basis. Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.2% to $70 million, or 12.7% of net sales. This increase was primarily due to higher volume, cost synergies and favorable mix and price/cost spread, partially offset by non-material inflation.
  • The Product Care division reported net sales of $421 million, a 4.4% increase compared to last year. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased by 3.9% primarily due to a favorable price/mix of 4.5%, partially offset by a 0.6% decline in volume. North America delivered a 6% increase in net sales on an as reported basis and in constant dollars. Product Care’s Adjusted EBITDA increased 7.2% to $74 million, or 17.7% of net sales. This increase was largely attributable to favorable mix and price/cost spread as well as cost synergies.

Third Quarter 2014 Summary

Third quarter 2014 net sales of $2.0 billion increased 3.4% on a reported basis and 3.6% on a constant dollar basis. Favorable product price/mix was 3.1% and volume increased 0.5%. The Company delivered constant dollar sales growth in all regions with 8.0% growth in Latin America, 7.3% in AMAT1, 4.7% in JANZ2, 3.2% in North America, and 1.0% in Europe. Additionally, third quarter 2014 reported net sales from Developing Regions3 increased 3.2% on a reported basis and 7.5% in constant dollars, accounting for 26.3% of total net sales.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2014 increased 8.4% to $300 million, or 15.2% of net sales. This compares to third quarter 2013 of $277 million, or 14.5% of net sales. The 70 basis point improvement in Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter 2014 was primarily attributable to favorable mix and price/cost spread and cost synergies, partially offset by non-material inflation.

Reported third quarter 2014 net earnings were $59 million, or $0.28 per share, which included special items largely comprised of costs associated with the previously disclosed restructuring programs, loss on refinancing activities and development grant matter. This compares to reported net earnings of $35 million in the same period a year ago, or $0.17 per share. Adjusted Net Earnings were $111 million or $0.52 per share in third quarter 2014. This compares to Adjusted Net Earnings of $90 million, or $0.42 per share in third quarter 2013. Diluted shares outstanding in the quarter were 213.9 million and 213.7 in the same period a year ago. The Tax Rate in third quarter 2014 was 27.8% as compared with 22.1% in third quarter 2013. This year-over-year increase was primarily due to greater earnings in the U.S. and in other jurisdictions with higher tax rates, as well as the lapse of certain U.S. tax laws, including certain foreign rules and the research and development credit.

As of October 24, 2014, the Company repurchased approximately 752,000 shares under a 10b5-1 share trading plan pursuant to the Company’s previously announced share repurchase program. These shares were purchased for approximately $25 million, at an average price of $33.47. Additionally, as previously disclosed, the Company repurchased approximately 3.9 million shares from the WRG Asbestos PI Trust during the second quarter of this year.

Cash Flow and Net Debt

Cash flow used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $482 million, which includes the $930 million payment in February 2014 pursuant to the W. R. Grace & Co. Settlement agreement (“Settlement agreement”). Excluding the Settlement agreement payment, cash flow provided by operating activities was $448 million, which is net of $76 million of restructuring and $18 million of SARs payments. This compares with cash provided by operating activities of $234 million, excluding Settlement agreement accrued interest in the nine months ended September 30, 2013, which is net of $72 million of restructuring and $43 million of SARs payments. Capital expenditures were $94 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to $80 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Free Cash Flow, defined as net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures, was a use of $576 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014. Excluding the Settlement agreement payment, Free Cash Flow was a source of $354 million, compared with a source of $154 million during the same period a year ago. Compared to December 31, 2013, the Company’s net debt decreased $137 million to $4.2 billion as of September 30, 2014. This decrease was primarily a result of Free Cash Flow excluding the Settlement agreement payment partially offset by amounts paid for dividends and share repurchases.

1 AMAT is comprised of Asia, Middle East, Africa and Turkey.

2 JANZ is comprised of Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

3 Developing Regions are Africa, Asia (excluding Japan and South Korea), Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America.

Outlook for Full Year 2014

The Company estimates net sales to be approximately $7.7 billion for the full year 2014, which assumes an unfavorable impact of approximately 2% from foreign currency translation. The Company previously estimated the impact of unfavorable foreign currency translation of approximately 1%.

Despite unfavorable currency translation, the Company is increasing its 2014 full year outlook for Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Free Cash Flow. Adjusted EBITDA is anticipated to be approximately $1.110 billion, an increase from the previously provided forecast of $1.085 billion to $1.095 billion. Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.70 to $1.75 as compared to the previously provided guidance of $1.65 to $1.70.

Free Cash Flow is estimated to be approximately $540 million as compared to the previously provided outlook of $485 million. The Company is revising its 2014 estimates for cash restructuring charges to be approximately $100 million and maintaining its forecast for capital expenditures of approximately $150 million. The Company’s Free Cash Flow target excludes the Settlement agreement payment referenced above.

(1) The supplementary information included in this press release for 2014 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) In December 2013, we completed the sale of our rigid medical packaging business for net cash proceeds of $122 million. The financial results of the rigid medical packaging business is reported as discontinued operations, net of tax, and accordingly all previously reported financial information has been revised.

(3) As previously disclosed in our 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K, on May 25, 2010, one of our Italian subsidiaries received a demand from the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (the “Ministry”) for the total repayment of grant monies paid to two of our former subsidiaries (a former Product Care business) in the amount of €5 million. With accrued interest the total value of the demand currently stands at €10 million ($14 million equivalent at September 30, 2014). Our Italian subsidiary submitted a total denial of liability in regard to this matter on June 30, 2010. A hearing on the merits was held on July 3, 2014; in mid-September, our subsidiary was advised that the demand for repayment of €10 million was upheld. Accordingly, in the three months ended September 30, 2014, we have recorded a current liability and corresponding charge of $14 million ($0.07 per share) related to this matter. The liability is included in other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and the charge is included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the condensed consolidated statements of operations. The charge is treated as a special item and included in Corporate in the Other category. We have filed an application to suspend enforcement of the judgment pending appeal.

(4) At September 30, 2014, the remaining amount of unvested cash-settled stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) will fully vest by 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.

(5) Based on changes to the Venezuelan currency exchange rate mechanisms, we changed the exchange rate we used to remeasure our Venezuelan subsidiary’s financial statements into U.S. dollars. As a result of the change in our excess cash position in our Venezuelan subsidiaries being remeasured, we recorded a remeasurement loss of $4 million in the three months ended September 30, 2014 and $19 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2014. In February 2013, the Venezuelan government announced a devaluation of the Bolivar from an official exchange rate of 4.3 to 6.3 bolivars per U.S. dollar. Due to this devaluation, as of September 30, 2013, we remeasured our bolivar denominated monetary assets and liabilities, which resulted in a pretax gain of $1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 and a $13 million pretax loss in the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

(6) 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.

(7) On July 25, 2014, we refinanced our amended and restated credit with Bank of America, N.A., as agent, and the other financial institutions party thereto. On August 29, 2014, we completed the $100 million delayed draw as part of the term loan A facility. As part of the draw, we also completed cross currency swaps, which convert our floating U.S. dollar denominated obligation under the term loan A into a fixed Brazilian real denominated obligation.

As a result of the refinancing, we recognized $18 million of loss on refinancing activities on our condensed consolidated statements of operations. This amount includes $13 million of accelerated unamortized original issuance discount related to term loan B and unamortized lender and non-lender fees related to the entire credit facility. Also included in the loss on debt redemption was $5 million of non-lender fees incurred in connection with the Second Restatement Agreement. In addition, we recorded $2 million of lender fees which are included in the carrying amount of the debt instruments. We also capitalized $5 million of non-lender fees which are included in other assets, net on our condensed consolidated balance sheet.

(8) Net earnings per common share is calculated under the two-class method. See our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further details.

(1) The results above are presented on a continuing operations basis, excluding our rigid medical packaging business, which we sold in December 2013. The supplementary information included in this press release for 2014 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 product 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 product 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.
