“We completed 2009 with record free cash flow and significantly accelerated debt reduction while operating in the most difficult economic environment in decades,” said Dean A. Scarborough, president and chief executive officer of Avery Dennison.

“While end markets remain soft, fourth-quarter sales reflect stabilizing inventory levels, resulting in solid improvement compared to the first half of the year,” Scarborough said. “Our restructuring and productivity initiatives helped us expand gross margin and continue to invest for the future.

“Our leading market share in our core businesses and increased operating leverage position us well for strong profitable growth as markets recover,” Scarborough said. “Our employees demonstrated great discipline in 2009, and I’m confident they will continue to do so in 2010 as we increase our focus on growth.”

For more details on the Company’s results, see the Company’s supplemental presentation materials, “Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Review and Analysis,” posted at the Company’s Web site at www.investors.averydennison.com, and furnished under Form 8-K with the SEC.

Fourth Quarter 2009 Results by Segment

All references to sales reflect comparisons on an organic basis, which exclude the impact of acquisitions, foreign currency translation, and the impact of an extra week in the 2009 fiscal year. All references to operating margin exclude the impact of restructuring, asset impairment charges, lease cancellation costs, and other items.

Pressure-sensitive Materials (PSM)

  • Roll Materials sales grew, led by strength in emerging markets, partially offset by weakness in Europe. Growth in North America was flat. Sales continued to decline in the more economically sensitive Graphics and Reflective Products division.
  • Operating margin increased as productivity offset higher employee costs*, while the effects of pricing and raw material trends continued to cover the cumulative impact of 2008 inflation.

Retail Information Services (RIS)

  • The decline in sales primarily reflected reduced demand for apparel in the U.S. and Europe, and continued caution on the part of retailers.
  • Operating margin before restructuring charges and other items declined as the benefits of restructuring and other productivity actions were offset by higher employee costs, reduced fixed-cost leverage, and other factors.
  • RIS continues to reduce fixed costs, streamline its operations, and introduce new products and value-added services to increase its share of this large market.

Office and Consumer Products (OCP)

  • The decline in sales reflected weak end-market demand, led by slower corporate purchasing activity.
  • Operating margin declined as the benefit of productivity actions was more than offset by reduced fixed-cost leverage, higher employee costs, and increased marketing and product development spending.

Other specialty converting businesses

  • Sales were flat compared to prior year, reflecting continuing weakness in the housing and construction industries.
  • The improvement in operating margin reflected restructuring and productivity initiatives.

* Higher employee costs were related to reduced bonus accruals in Q4-08 (reflecting underperformance against financial targets late in that year) and increased bonus accruals in Q4-09 (reflecting Q4 outperformance against free cash flow targets), as well as adjustments to corporate-owned life insurance.

Consolidated Items and Actions

       

  In the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company began a restructuring program to reduce costs across all segments of the business. In the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company increased its target to $180 million in annualized savings by mid-2010, and delivered approximately $75 million in savings, net of transition costs, in 2009. The Company estimates that it will incur approximately $160 million of total restructuring charges associated with these actions (cash charges represent approximately 70 percent of the total), with approximately $130 million incurred in 2009. The cash flow impact of the program totaled approximately $70 million in 2009.
 

At the end of the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company achieved run-rate savings representing approximately 75 percent of its restructuring target.

 

The effective tax rate for the full year was approximately 6 percent, while the adjusted tax rates for the full year and fourth quarter were approximately 12 percent and 16 percent, respectively.
 

The Company reduced debt by approximately $300 million in the second half of 2009, resulting from dramatically improved working capital productivity, reduced capital spending, and the reduced dividend.

2010

In the Company’s supplemental presentation materials, “Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Review and Analysis,” the Company provides a list of factors that it believes will contribute to its 2010 financial results. Based on the factors listed and other assumptions, EPS results in 2010 could be as follows:

                   

Organic Sales Scenario

Adjusted EPS*

Up 5%

$2.70 to $3.00

Flat

$2.00 to $2.30

*Excludes restructuring and asset impairment charges and other items

 

Within the range of scenarios provided above, the Company estimates Free Cash Flow in 2010 of $300 to $350 million.

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. Such 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 investment in development activities and new production facilities; fluctuations in cost and availability of raw materials; ability of the Company to achieve and sustain targeted cost reductions; ability of the Company to generate sustained productivity improvement; successful integration of acquisitions; successful implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment; the financial condition and inventory strategies of customers; customer and supplier concentrations; changes in customer order patterns; loss of significant contract(s) or customer(s); timely development and market acceptance of new products; fluctuations in demand affecting sales to customers; impact of competitive products and pricing; selling prices; business mix shift; volatility of capital and credit markets; impairment of capitalized assets, including goodwill and other intangibles; credit risks; ability of the Company to obtain adequate financing arrangements and to maintain access to capital; fluctuations in interest and tax rates; fluctuations in pension, insurance and employee benefit costs; impact of legal proceedings, including a previous government investigation into industry competitive practices, and any related proceedings or lawsuits pertaining thereto or to the subject matter thereof related to the concluded investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") (including purported class actions seeking treble damages for alleged unlawful competitive practices, which were filed after the announcement of the DOJ investigation), as well as the impact of potential violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; changes in tax laws and regulations; changes in governmental regulations; changes in political conditions; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and other risks associated with foreign operations; worldwide and local economic conditions; impact of epidemiological events on the economy and the Company's customers and suppliers; acts of war, terrorism, and natural disasters; and other factors.

The Company believes that the most significant risk factors that could affect its financial performance in the near-term include (1) the impact of economic conditions on underlying demand for the Company's products and on the carrying value of its assets; (2) the impact of 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.

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 the Company’s most recent Form 10-K, filed on February 25, 2009, with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Accordance with SEC Regulations G and S-K
 
Avery Dennison reports financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and herein provides some non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement the Company's presentation of its financial results that are prepared in accordance with GAAP.
 

The Company’s 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 measures, may make it difficult to assess the underlying performance of the Company in a single period. By excluding certain accounting effects, both positive and negative (e.g. restructuring charges, asset impairments, legal settlement costs, certain effects of acquisitions and related integration costs, loss from debt extinguishment, gains on sales of assets, etc.), from certain of the Company’s GAAP measures, the Company believes that it is providing meaningful supplemental information to facilitate an understanding of the Company’s "core" or "underlying" operating results. These non-GAAP measures are used internally to evaluate trends in the Company’s underlying business, as well as to facilitate comparison to the results of competitors for a single period. The Company adjusted the estimated GAAP tax rate to exclude the full year estimated tax effect of charges for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible asset impairments, restructuring costs and asset impairment and lease cancellation charges, legal settlement costs, loss from debt extinguishment, transition costs associated with acquisition integrations and gain on sale of investments to determine its adjusted non-GAAP tax rate to derive non-GAAP net income.

 

Limitations associated with the use of the Company’s non-GAAP measures include (1) the exclusion of items that recur from time to time (e.g. restructuring, asset impairment charges, discontinued operations, etc.) and items that occur infrequently (e.g. legal settlement costs, loss from debt extinguishment) from calculations of the Company’s earnings and operating margin; (2) the exclusion of certain effects of acquisitions, including integration costs and certain financing costs; (3) the exclusion of interest expense from the calculation of the Company’s operating margin; and (4) the exclusion of any mandatory debt service requirements, as well as the exclusion of other uses of the cash generated by operating activities that do not directly or immediately support the underlying business (such as discretionary debt reductions, dividends, share repurchase, acquisitions, etc.) for calculation of free cash flow. While certain items that the Company excludes from GAAP measures recur, these items tend to be disparate in amount and timing.  Based upon feedback from investors and financial analysts, the Company believes that supplemental non-GAAP measures provide information that is useful to the assessment of the Company’s performance and operating trends.

 
The reconciliation set forth below is provided in accordance with Regulations G and S-K and reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
