"PSM's solid earnings growth reflected a return to high single-digit organic growth in emerging markets, alongside outstanding productivity gains globally"

GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY) today announced preliminary, unaudited results for its first quarter ended April 2, 2016. All non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this document are reconciled to GAAP in the attached tables. Unless otherwise indicated, comparisons are to the same period in the prior year.

“We’re off to a very good start to the year,” said Dean Scarborough, Avery Dennison chairman and CEO. “Both of our core businesses delivered solid organic sales growth and significant margin expansion, driving mid-teens growth in adjusted EPS, above our expectations for the quarter.

“Our consistently strong performance is testament to the strategic foundations we have laid, as well as the strength and depth of our leadership team. I am happy to say that the leadership transition we have had underway has been seamless, and I hand off my CEO duties to Mitch with complete confidence,” Scarborough added.

“I am really proud to have been a part of making Avery Dennison the leading company that it is today, and am as excited about the company’s future as I was when I joined more than thirty years ago,” said Scarborough.

“I look forward to working with our board and leadership team to continue building on our solid foundation," said Mitch Butier, Avery Dennison president and chief operating officer. "We have excellent prospects for profitable growth, exemplified by our strong results in the first quarter.

"PSM's solid earnings growth reflected a return to high single-digit organic growth in emerging markets, alongside outstanding productivity gains globally,” Butier added. “RBIS grew through continued momentum in radio-frequency identification products. While we have not yet met our objective to accelerate growth in core product sales, the team is executing well against its aggressive margin improvement plans for the year.

“We have raised our outlook for full-year adjusted earnings per share, reflecting some relief from currency translation headwinds, combined with strong operating performance in the first quarter,” said Butier. “We continue to remain confident that the consistent execution of our strategies will enable us to meet our long-term goals for superior value creation through a balance of profitable growth and capital discipline."

For more details on the company’s results, see the summary table accompanying this news release, as well as the supplemental presentation materials, “First Quarter 2016 Financial Review and Analysis,” posted on the company’s website at www.investors.averydennison.com, and furnished to the SEC on Form 8-K.

First Quarter 2016 Results by Segment

All references to sales reflect comparisons on an organic basis, which exclude the estimated impact of currency translation, product line exits, and acquisitions and divestitures. Adjusted operating margin refers to income before interest expense and taxes, excluding restructuring charges and other items, as a percentage of sales.

Pressure-sensitive Materials (PSM)

  • PSM sales increased approximately 4 percent. Within the segment, sales in both Label and Packaging Materials and combined Graphics and Performance Tapes increased mid-single digits.
  • Operating margin improved 170 basis points to 12.7 percent as the benefit of productivity initiatives and increased volume more than offset higher employee-related costs. Adjusted operating margin improved 140 basis points.

Retail Branding and Information Solutions (RBIS)

  • RBIS sales increased approximately 4 percent.
  • Operating margin increased 200 basis points to 6.9 percent as the benefit of productivity initiatives and increased volume more than offset higher employee-related costs. Adjusted operating margin increased 140 basis points.

Other

Share Repurchases / Equity Dilution from Long-Term Incentives

The company repurchased 1.5 million shares in the first quarter of 2016 at an aggregate cost of $96 million. Net of dilution, the company reduced its share count by 0.8 million in the first quarter. The cost of repurchases, net of proceeds from stock option exercises, was $80 million.

Income Taxes

The first quarter effective tax rate was 27 percent. The adjusted tax rate for the first quarter was 34 percent, consistent with the anticipated full year tax rate in the low to mid-thirty percent range.

Cost Reduction Actions

In the first quarter, the company realized approximately $27 million in pre-tax savings from restructuring, net of transition costs, and incurred pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $6 million, nearly all of which represented cash charges.

Pension Liability Settlement Charges

As part of a previously announced long-term strategy to reduce financial volatility associated with its frozen defined benefit pension plan for U.S. employees, the company offered eligible former employees the option to receive their benefits immediately as either a lump sum payment or an annuity, rather than waiting until they are retirement eligible under the terms of the plan. Satisfaction of this offer will be made out of existing plan assets during the second quarter of this year. No additional contributions to the plan are required to complete the offering.

This action settles approximately $70 million of the company’s existing pension liability. The company estimates that it will incur a one-time, non-cash charge of approximately $40 million, or approximately $0.30 per share, in the second quarter. This action is not expected to change required contributions to the pension plan over the next several years. The company does not anticipate making any contributions to the U.S. pension plan in 2016, and the amount of contributions to foreign plans is expected to be similar to recent years.

Outlook

In its supplemental presentation materials, “First Quarter 2016 Financial Review and Analysis,” the company provides a list of factors that it believes will contribute to its 2016 financial results. Based on the factors listed and other assumptions, the company now expects 2016 earnings per share of $3.25 to $3.40. Excluding an estimated $0.20 per share for restructuring charges and other items, and $0.30 per share for non-cash charges to settle certain U.S. pension obligations, the company now expects adjusted (non-GAAP) earnings per share of $3.75 to $3.90.

Note: Throughout this release and the supplemental presentation materials, amounts on a per share basis reflect fully diluted shares outstanding.

These forward-looking statements, and financial or other business targets, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties. Actual results and trends may differ materially from historical or anticipated results depending on a variety of factors, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties relating to the following: fluctuations in demand affecting sales to customers; worldwide and local economic conditions; fluctuations in currency exchange rates and other risks associated with foreign operations, including in emerging markets; the financial condition and inventory strategies of customers; changes in customer preferences; fluctuations in cost and availability of raw materials; our ability to generate sustained productivity improvement; our ability to achieve and sustain targeted cost reductions; the impact of competitive products and pricing; loss of significant contracts or customers; collection of receivables from customers; selling prices; business mix shift; timely development and market acceptance of new products, including sustainable or sustainably-sourced products; investment in development activities and new production facilities; integration of acquisitions and completion of potential dispositions; amounts of future dividends and share repurchases; customer and supplier concentrations; successful implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment; disruptions in information technology systems, including cyber-attacks or other intrusions to network security; successful installation of new or upgraded information technology systems; data security breaches; volatility of financial markets; impairment of capitalized assets, including goodwill and other intangibles; credit risks; our ability to obtain adequate financing arrangements and maintain access to capital; fluctuations in interest and tax rates; changes in tax laws and regulations, and uncertainties associated with interpretations of such laws and regulations; outcome of tax audits; fluctuations in pension, insurance, and employee benefit costs; the impact of legal and regulatory proceedings, including with respect to environmental, health and safety; changes in governmental laws and regulations; protection and infringement of intellectual property; changes in political conditions; the impact of epidemiological events on the economy and our customers and suppliers; acts of war, terrorism, and natural disasters; and other factors.

We believe that the most significant risk factors that could affect our financial performance in the near-term include: (1) the impacts of economic conditions on underlying demand for our products and foreign currency fluctuations; (2) competitors' actions, including pricing, expansion in key markets, and product offerings; and (3) the degree to which higher costs can be offset with productivity measures and/or passed on to customers through selling price increases, without a significant loss of volume.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Accordance with SEC Regulations G and S-K
 
We report financial results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, and also communicate with investors using certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for or superior to, the comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement presentation of our financial results that are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Based upon feedback from investors and financial analysts, we believe that supplemental non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to the assessment of our performance and operating trends, as well as liquidity.
 
Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain events, activities, or strategic decisions. The accounting effects of these events, activities or decisions, which are included in the GAAP financial measures, may make it difficult to assess our underlying performance in a single period. By excluding the accounting effects, both positive and negative, of certain items (e.g., restructuring charges, asset impairments, legal settlements, certain effects of strategic transactions and related costs, losses from debt extinguishments, losses from curtailment and settlement of pension obligations, gains or losses on sales of certain assets, and other items), we believe that we are providing meaningful supplemental information to facilitate an understanding of our core operating results and liquidity measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are used internally to evaluate trends in our underlying performance, as well as to facilitate comparison to the results of competitors for a single period. While some of the items we exclude from GAAP financial measures recur, they tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, or timing.
 
We use the following non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying news release and presentation:
 
Organic sales change refers to the increase or decrease in sales excluding the estimated impact of currency translation, product line exits, acquisitions and divestitures, and, where applicable, the extra week in the prior fiscal year.
 
Adjusted operating margin refers to income before interest expense and taxes, excluding restructuring charges and other items, as a percentage of sales.
 
Adjusted tax rate refers to the anticipated full-year GAAP tax rate adjusted for certain events.
 
Adjusted net income refers to reported net income adjusted for tax-effected restructuring charges and other items.
 
Adjusted EPS refers to reported net income per common share, assuming dilution, adjusted for tax-effected restructuring charges and other items.
 
Free cash flow refers to cash flow from operations, less payments for property, plant and equipment, software and other deferred charges, plus proceeds from sales of property, plant and equipment, plus (minus) net proceeds from sales (purchases) of investments. Free cash flow excludes uses of cash that do not directly or immediately support the underlying business, such as discretionary debt reductions, dividends, share repurchases, and certain effects of acquisitions and divestitures (e.g., cash flow from discontinued operations, taxes, and transaction costs).
 
The reconciliations set forth below and in the accompanying presentation are provided in accordance with Regulations G and S-K and reconcile our non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Certain prior period amounts have been revised to reflect the impact of certain adjustments and to correct the timing of previously recorded out-of-period adjustments.
 
In the fourth quarter of 2015, we elected to adopt the provisions of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, earlier than required. This ASU requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be classified as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability instead of being recorded separately in other assets. The new guidance was applied on a retrospective basis and prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
 
In the fourth quarter of 2015, we also elected to adopt the provisions of ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes, earlier than required. This ASU requires that all deferred tax assets and liabilities for each jurisdiction, along with any related valuation allowances, be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet. As permitted by this ASU, prior periods have not been retrospectively adjusted.
