"Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition"

PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY) today announced preliminary, unaudited results for its third quarter ended September 28, 2013. All non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this document are reconciled to GAAP in the attached tables. Unless otherwise indicated, the discussion of the company’s results is focused on its continuing operations, and comparisons are to the same period in the prior year. Results reflect classification of Office and Consumer Products (OCP) and Designed and Engineered Solutions (DES) businesses as discontinued operations.

“I’m happy to once again report strong double-digit adjusted earnings growth for the quarter,” said Dean Scarborough, Avery Dennison chairman, president and CEO. “Both of our core businesses are delivering solid sales growth, as well as outstanding operating margin expansion.”

“With another strong quarter behind us, we increased our earnings guidance for the year, and we remain committed to our disciplined capital allocation strategy,” Scarborough added. “We will return the vast majority of the net proceeds from our recent divestitures to shareholders, along with the solid free cash flow generated by our ongoing business. During the first nine months, we distributed over $300 million through dividends and the repurchase of 5.2 million shares.”

For more details on the company’s results, see the summary table accompanying this news release, as well as the supplemental presentation materials, “Third Quarter 2013 Financial Review and Analysis,” posted on the company’s website at www.investors.averydennison.com, and furnished to the SEC on Form 8-K.

Third Quarter 2013 Results by Segment

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

Pressure-sensitive Materials (PSM)

  • PSM segment sales increased approximately 4 percent. Within the segment, Label and Packaging Materials sales increased low single digits. Combined sales for Graphics, Reflective, and Performance Tapes increased mid-single digits.
  • Operating margin improved 220 basis points to 10.2 percent as the benefit of productivity initiatives, lower restructuring costs, and higher volume more than offset the impact of changes in product mix. Adjusted operating margin improved 120 basis points.

Retail Branding and Information Solutions (RBIS)

  • RBIS segment sales increased approximately 4 percent driven by increased demand from European retailers and brands.
  • Operating margin declined 20 basis points to 3.2 percent due to higher restructuring costs. Adjusted operating margin improved 100 basis points as the benefit of productivity initiatives and higher volume more than offset higher employee-related expenses.

Other

Share Repurchases

The company repurchased 5.2 million shares through the end of the third quarter at an aggregate cost of $224 million.

Discontinued Operations

On July 1, 2013, the company completed the sale of its OCP and DES businesses to CCL Industries Inc. Net proceeds from the sale are expected to be approximately $400 million, which the company intends to use primarily to repurchase shares. Net loss per share from discontinued operations was $(0.25), which includes loss on sale.

Income Taxes

The third quarter effective tax rate was 17 percent, reflecting timing of certain discrete events and planning. The year-to-date adjusted tax rate was 33 percent.

Cost Reduction Actions

In the third quarter, the company continued to execute its plans to reduce fixed costs through restructuring actions. The company realized approximately $110 million in annualized savings from the program initiated in the first half of 2012. To implement these actions, the company incurred restructuring costs, net of gain on sale of assets, of approximately $20 million in the first nine months of 2013; in the fourth quarter, costs are expected to be offset by gains.

Outlook

In its supplemental presentation materials, “Third Quarter 2013 Financial Review and Analysis,” the company provides a list of factors that it believes will contribute to its 2013 financial results. Based on the factors listed and other assumptions, the company now expects 2013 earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.40 to $2.50. Excluding an estimated $0.20 per share for restructuring costs and other items, net of gain on sale of assets, the company expects adjusted (non-GAAP) earnings per share from continuing operations of $2.60 to $2.70. The company continues to expect free cash flow from continuing operations in the range of $275 million to $315 million.

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

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Accordance with SEC Regulations G and S-K
 
Avery Dennison reports financial results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or 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 or superior to, the comparable 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. Based upon feedback from investors and financial analysts, the company believes that supplemental non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to the assessment of the company’s performance and operating trends, as well as liquidity.
 
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 financial 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, of certain items (e.g., restructuring costs, asset impairments, legal settlements, certain effects of strategic transactions and related costs, loss from debt extinguishments, loss from curtailment and settlement of pension obligations, gains or losses on sale of certain assets and other items), the company believes that it is providing meaningful supplemental information to facilitate an understanding of the company’s core operating results and liquidity measures. These non-GAAP financial 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. While some of the items excluded from GAAP financial measures may recur, they tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, and timing.
 
The company uses 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;

 
Adjusted operating margin refers to earnings before interest expense and taxes, excluding restructuring costs 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 the tax-effected restructuring costs and other items;
 
Adjusted EPS refers to as reported net income per common share, assuming dilution, adjusted for the tax-effected restructuring costs and other items; and
 
Free cash flow refers to cash flow from operations, less payments for property, plant and equipment, software and other deferred charges, plus proceeds from sale of property, plant and equipment, plus (minus) net proceeds from sales (purchases) of investments, plus discretionary contributions to pension plans and charitable contribution to Avery Dennison Foundation utilizing proceeds from divestitures. 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, transaction costs, etc.).
 
The reconciliations set forth below and in the accompanying presentation 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.
