"We are off to a strong start to the year, with solid top-line performance and double-digit earnings growth"

GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY) today announced preliminary, unaudited results for its first quarter ended April 1, 2017. 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 are off to a strong start to the year, with solid top-line performance and double-digit earnings growth,” said Mitch Butier, Avery Dennison President and CEO. “Label and Graphic Materials delivered another strong quarter; Retail Branding and Information Solutions continues to drive volume growth and improved profitability; and, within Industrial and Healthcare Materials, solid growth in industrial categories mostly offset the anticipated decline in healthcare.

“Our consistent achievement of our financial targets, reflected in another consecutive quarter of strong earnings growth and increase to our guidance for the full year, reflects the resilience of our market positions, depth of talent in the company, and strategic foundations we’ve laid,” Butier added.

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 2017 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 2017 Results by Segment

Organic sales change refers to the increase or decrease in sales excluding 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.

Label and Graphic Materials

  • Reported sales increased 7.6 percent; on an organic basis, sales grew an estimated 4.9 percent. Sales on an organic basis increased mid-single digits in Label and Packaging Materials and increased low-single digits in the combined Graphics and Reflective Solutions businesses.
  • Operating margin of 12.5 percent was flat to prior year as the benefits of increased volume and productivity initiatives were offset by unfavorable mix and higher employee costs. Adjusted operating margin of 12.7 percent was flat to prior year.

Retail Branding and Information Solutions

  • Reported sales increased 2.0 percent; on an organic basis, sales grew an estimated 2.9 percent.
  • Operating margin improved 130 basis points to 7.3 percent as the benefits of productivity initiatives and increased volume were partially offset by increased employee costs. Adjusted operating margin improved 140 basis points to 8.3 percent.

Industrial and Healthcare Materials

  • Reported sales increased 2.0 percent; sales declined an estimated 1.3 percent on an organic basis. Sales in industrial categories increased mid-single digits on an organic basis, mostly offsetting the anticipated decline in healthcare categories.
  • Operating margin declined 270 basis points to 11.1 percent largely due to the expected decline in sales for healthcare categories. Adjusted operating margin declined 250 basis points to 11.5 percent.
  • The company expects the previously announced acquisition of Yongle Tape to close in the middle of this year.

Other

Financing

In March, the company issued €500 million of 1.25% Senior Notes due 2025. The company used approximately €200 million of the net proceeds from the offering to repay commercial paper borrowings that were used to finance a portion of its acquisition of the European business of Mactac in August 2016 and plans to use the remainder for general corporate purposes, including other acquisitions.

Income Taxes

The first quarter effective tax rate was 17.4 percent, lower than prior year due to the company’s adoption of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, which requires that all tax effects related to share-based payments at settlement or expiration be recognized through the income statement. The adjusted tax rate for the first quarter was 30 percent, consistent with the company’s expectation for the full year tax rate.

Share Repurchases / Equity Dilution from Long-Term Incentives

The company repurchased 0.5 million shares in the first quarter of 2017 at an aggregate cost of $35 million. Net of dilution, including the dilutive effect of the adoption of ASU 2016-09, the company’s share count increased 0.6 million in the first quarter. The cost of repurchases, net of proceeds from stock option exercises, was $18 million.

Cost Reduction Actions

In the first quarter, the company realized approximately $11 million in pre-tax savings from restructuring, net of transition costs, and incurred pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $6 million, all of which represent cash charges.

Outlook

In its supplemental presentation materials, “First Quarter 2017 Financial Review and Analysis,” the company provides a list of factors that it believes will contribute to its 2017 financial results. Based on the factors listed and other assumptions, the company now expects 2017 reported earnings per share of $4.20 to $4.35. Excluding an estimated $0.30 per share for restructuring charges and other items, the company now expects adjusted earnings per share (non-GAAP) of $4.50 to $4.65.

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

Certain statements contained in this document are "forward-looking statements" intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. 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 are not limited to, risks and uncertainties relating to the following: fluctuations in demand affecting sales to customers; worldwide and local economic conditions; changes in political conditions; changes in governmental laws and regulations; 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; execution and integration of acquisitions and completion of potential dispositions; timely development and market acceptance of new products, including sustainable or sustainably-sourced products; investment in development activities and new production facilities; 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; protection and infringement of intellectual property; 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 global economic conditions and political uncertainty on underlying demand for our products and foreign currency fluctuations; (2) competitors' actions, including pricing, expansion in key markets, and product offerings; (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; and (4) the execution and integration of acquisitions.

For a more detailed discussion of these and other factors, see “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition” in our 2016 Form 10-K, filed on February 23, 2017 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Accordance with SEC Regulations G and S-K
 
We report our 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 the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures we provide are useful to their 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, 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:
 
Sales change (ex. currency) refers to the increase or decrease in sales excluding the estimated impact of currency translation.
 
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 our fiscal year. The estimated impact of currency translation is calculated on a constant currency basis, with prior period results translated at current period average exchange rates to exclude the effect of currency fluctuations.
 
We believe that sales change (ex. currency) and organic sales change assist investors in evaluating the sales growth from the ongoing activities of our businesses and provide greater ability to evaluate our results from period to period.
 
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 our anticipated full-year GAAP tax rate using the most likely scenario in a range of estimated tax rates for the year. This range includes various items such as the impact of the discrete rates applicable to the adjustments we make in calculating our adjusted non-GAAP earnings, changes in uncertain tax positions and our repatriation assertions on unremitted earnings, and other items that may impact our full-year GAAP tax rate.
 
Adjusted net income refers to income before taxes, tax-effected at the adjusted tax rate, and adjusted for tax-effected restructuring charges and other items.
 
Adjusted net income per common share, assuming dilution (adjusted EPS) refers to adjusted net income divided by weighted average number of common shares outstanding, assuming dilution.
 
We believe that adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income, and adjusted EPS assist investors in understanding our core operating trends and comparing our results with those of our competitors.
 
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. We believe that free cash flow assists investors by showing the amount of cash we have available for debt reductions, dividends, share repurchases, and acquisitions.
 
The following reconciliations 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.
