Intertape Polymer Group Reports First Quarter 2013

08:00 EDT Wednesday, May 15, 2013

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BRADENTON, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP) ("Intertape" or the "Company") today released results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. All amounts are denominated in US dollars unless otherwise indicated.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Gross margin increased to 19.5% from 16.3% in the first quarter of 2012
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 million increased 18.4% over the first quarter of 2012
  • Cash flows from operating activities before changes in working capital of $19.1 million
  • Adjusted fully diluted EPS of $0.24 compared to $0.14 in the first quarter of 2012
  • Completed initiatives announced in June 2012 to consolidate and optimize manufacturing operations
  • Recorded $26.0 million charge in the first quarter of 2013 related to the previously announced relocation and modernization of the Columbia, South Carolina manufacturing operation with expected annual savings of more than $13 million starting in the first half of 2015 with the first full year effects to be realized in 2016

Other Announcements:

  • Semi-annual dividend of USD$0.08 per share paid in April
  • Notice of Redemption issued for an additional $20 million of Senior Subordinated Notes ("Notes") to occur in June 2013

"We are very pleased with gross margin of 19.5% on relatively stable sales volume. We achieved this upper level of our expected gross margin range as a result of continued progress made on our gross margin improvement initiatives," stated Intertape President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Yull.

"At the end of the first quarter of 2013, the debt to trailing 12-month adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.7 compared to 2.8 for the same period last year. This improvement allows us to significantly increase our capital expenditures with confidence over the next two years as we invest for the future. The planned redemption of another $20 million of Notes in June will further lower our average cost of debt.

"At the end of June 2012, we announced some important initiatives concerning three of our facilities. Production ceased in Richmond, Kentucky in the fourth quarter of 2012, and production of shrink film in Truro, Nova Scotia ceased in the first quarter of 2013 and was consolidated in Tremonton, Utah. As indicated before, we expect a positive contribution to adjusted EBITDA of approximately $5 million in 2013, and approximately $6 million annually thereafter, as a result of these initiatives," concluded Mr. Yull.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $196.7 million, a 1.1% decrease compared to $198.9 million for the first quarter of 2012 and a 3.9% sequential increase compared to $189.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Revenue was lower in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012 due to a decrease in selling prices including the impact of product mix, partially offset by a slight increase in sales volume. Revenue was higher in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily due to an increase in selling prices including the impact of product mix as well as an increase in sales volume of approximately 1%.

Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, decreased approximately 1% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to a shift in the mix of the products sold, partially offset by an increase in selling prices. Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, increased approximately 3% in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to a shift in the mix of products sold and, to a lesser extent, higher selling prices.

Gross profit totalled $38.3 million in the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 18.2% from $32.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and an increase of 8.7% from $35.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 19.5%, 16.3% and 18.6% in the first quarter of 2013, in the first quarter of 2012 and in the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively.

When compared to the first quarter of 2012, gross profit and gross margin increased primarily due to an improvement in the spread between selling prices and raw material costs as well as the impact of manufacturing cost reductions. When compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, the increase in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to manufacturing cost reductions and improved product mix.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") totalled $23.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 compared to $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and $20.8 million in fourth quarter of 2012. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A was 11.7%, 9.2% and 11.0% for the first quarter of 2013, the first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. SG&A was $4.6 million greater in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2012 primarily due to a $1.7 million increase in stock-based compensation expense, a provision with respect to the resolution of a contingent liability and higher variable compensation expense related to higher adjusted EBITDA. The increase in stock-based compensation expense was related to the impact of an increase in the Company's share price on Stock Appreciation Rights ("SAR") expense. When compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, SG&A increased by $2.1 million primarily due to the provision with respect to the resolution of a contingent liability and a $0.9 million increase in stock-based compensation expense related to SAR expense.

Adjusted EBITDA was $24.0 million for the first quarter of 2013, $20.2 million for the first quarter of 2012 and $21.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2013 compared with both prior periods is primarily due to higher gross profit, as discussed above.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 totalled $15.8 million as compared to net earnings of $7.7 million for the first quarter of 2012, and net earnings of $5.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease in net earnings for the first quarter of 2013 compared with both periods was primarily due to $27.2 million of manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges recorded in the first quarter of 2013, partially offset by increased gross profit, as discussed above. As previously announced in February, this charge primarily relates to the relocation and modernization of the Company's Columbia, South Carolina manufacturing operation.

Adjusted net earnings amounted to $15.0 million for the first quarter of 2013, $8.4 million for the first quarter of 2012 and $10.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, respectively. Adjusted net earnings for the first quarter of 2013 increased as compared to both periods primarily due to higher gross profit and lower interest costs.

Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.24 per share ($0.26 loss unadjusted), $0.14 per share ($0.13 unadjusted) for the first quarter of 2012 and $0.16 per share ($0.09 unadjusted) for the fourth quarter of 2012.

For a reconciliation of non-generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section below.

Cash flows from operations before changes in working capital items decreased in the first quarter of 2013 by $1.0 million to $19.1 million from $20.1 million in the first quarter of 2012 and decreased $0.4 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease in cash flows from operations before changes in working capital for the first quarter of 2013 compared to both the first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2012 is primarily due to higher cash costs related to manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges, partially offset by higher gross margin.

The Company had total cash and loan availability of $69.7 million as of March 31, 2013, $54.7 million as of December 31, 2012 and $81.5 million as of March 31, 2012. The increase of $14.9 million in total cash and loan availability between December 31, 2012 and March 31, 2013 was due to an $11.5 million increase in the borrowing base combined with a decrease of $3.5 million in the total draw. The $11.5 million increase in the borrowing base was primarily due to an increase in trade receivables. As of March 31, 2013 debt was $149.8 million compared to $199.1 million as of March 31, 2012.

The Company had cash and loan availability under its ABL facility exceeding $61 million as of May 14, 2013.

Outlook

The Company intends to continue to focus on developing and selling higher margin products, reducing variable manufacturing costs, executing on the previously announced manufacturing plant initiatives and optimizing its debt structure. As a result, the Company anticipates the following:

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 is expected to be slightly lower than the first quarter of 2013;
  • Gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 is expected to be slightly higher than the first quarter of 2013;
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2013 is expected to be slightly higher than the first quarter of 2013;
  • Capital expenditures expected to be $19 to $22 million for the second quarter of 2013, $48 to $54 million for total 2013, and $21 to $26 million in 2014. These amounts include capital expenditures for the manufacturing rationalization projects set forth in the table below;
  • Total debt at June 30, 2013 is expected to be higher than at March 31, 2013 due to an increase in capital expenditures and payment of a dividend. However, the announced $20.0 million redemption of the Notes on June 27, 2013 is expected to result in a lower average cost of debt as of June 30, 2013 as compared to prior periods. The remaining Notes are expected to be redeemed later in 2013; and
  • The Company recently ceased production at its Richmond, Kentucky manufacturing facility as well as shrink film production at its Truro, Nova Scotia facility. Cash savings related to these projects are expected to total $5 million in 2013 and approximately $6 million annually in future years. The Company plans to relocate and modernize its Columbia, South Carolina manufacturing operation with state-of-the-art equipment in a new facility. The Company anticipates total annual cash savings in excess of $13 million starting in the first half of 2015 with the first full year effects in 2016. Estimated restructuring expenses and cash flows for these projects are summarized below.

Intertape Polymer US Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intertape, has issued a notice of redemption for $20.0 million aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 8 1/2% Notes due August 2014. The notional amount of Notes outstanding after this redemption will be $18.7 million. A charge of $0.2 million will be recorded in the second quarter of 2013 due to the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs related to the redemption of the Notes.

A notice of redemption (the "Redemption Notice") pursuant to the terms of the Indenture governing the Notes has been distributed by the Company. The Redemption Notice issued yesterday states that the redemption date is June 27, 2013 (the "Redemption Date"), and the redemption price is 100% of the par value of the Notes redeemed ("Redemption Payment"), plus accrued and unpaid interest to the Redemption Date. The Redemption Payment will be paid promptly following the later of the Redemption Date or the time of surrender of the Notes called for redemption to Wilmington Trust Company. Questions regarding the redemption should be directed to Wilmington Trust Company, by telephone at (203) 453-4130 or by facsimile at (203) 453-1183.

This announcement does not constitute a Notice of Redemption or an offer to buy or sell or the solicitation of an offer to sell or buy any securities in any jurisdiction. The securities mentioned herein have not been and will not be qualified for sale to the public under applicable Canadian or United States securities laws and, accordingly, any offer and sale of the securities in Canada or the United States will be made on a basis which is exempt from the prospectus requirements of such securities laws.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flows, adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted earnings (loss) per share are not GAAP measures. Whenever Intertape uses such non-GAAP measures, it will provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most closely applicable GAAP measure set forth below and should consider non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA

A reconciliation of the Company's EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to GAAP net earnings (loss) is set out in the EBITDA reconciliation table below. EBITDA should not be construed as earnings (loss) before income taxes, net earnings (loss) or cash flows from operating activities as determined by GAAP. The Company defines EBITDA as net earnings (loss) before (i) interest and other (income) expense; (ii) income tax expense (benefit); (iii) refinancing expense, net of amortization; (iv) amortization of debt issue expenses; (v) amortization of intangible assets; and (vi) depreciation of property, plant and equipment. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before (i) manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges; (ii) stock-based compensation expense; (iii) impairment of goodwill; (iv) impairment of long-lived assets and other assets; (v) write-down on assets classified as held-for-sale; and (vi) other items as disclosed. The terms "EBITDA" and "adjusted EBITDA" do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities or as alternatives to net earnings (loss) as indicators of the Company's operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company has included these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that it permits investors to make a more meaningful comparison of the Company's performance between periods presented. In addition, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are used by Management and the Company's lenders in evaluating the Company's performance.

Adjusted Net Earnings (Loss)

A reconciliation of the Company's adjusted net earnings (loss), a non-GAAP financial measure, to GAAP net earnings (loss) is set out in the adjusted net earnings (loss) reconciliation table below. Adjusted net earnings (loss) should not be construed as net earnings (loss) as determined by GAAP. The Company defines adjusted net earnings (loss) as net earnings (loss) before (i) manufacturing facility closures, restructuring, and other related charges; (ii) stock-based compensation expense; (iii) impairment of goodwill; (iv) impairment of long-lived assets and other assets; (v) write-down on assets classified as held-for-sale; (vi) other items as disclosed; and (vii) income tax effect of these items. The term "adjusted net earnings (loss)" does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted net earnings (loss) is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings (loss) as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company has included this non-GAAP financial measure because it believes that it permits investors to make a more meaningful comparison of the Company's performance between periods presented. In addition, adjusted net earnings (loss) is used by Management in evaluating the Company's performance because it believes it provides a more accurate indicator of the Company's performance.

Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is also presented in the following table and is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share should not be construed as earnings (loss) per share as determined by GAAP. The Company defines adjusted earnings (loss) per share as adjusted net earnings (loss) divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, both basic and diluted. The term "adjusted earnings (loss) per share" does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted earnings (loss) per share is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings (loss) per share as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company has included this non-GAAP financial measure because it believes that it permits investors to make a more meaningful comparison of the Company's performance between periods presented. In addition, adjusted earnings (loss) per share is used by Management in evaluating the Company's performance because it believes it provides a more accurate indicator of the Company's performance.
