Intertape Polymer Group Reports Improved Second Quarter 2013

17:05 EDT Wednesday, August 14, 2013

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BRADENTON, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - Aug. 14, 2013) - Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP) ("Intertape" or the "Company") today released results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. All amounts are denominated in US dollars unless otherwise indicated and all percentages are calculated on unrounded numbers.

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Gross margin increased to 21.8% from 18.3% in the second quarter of 2012
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $28.3 million increased 30.6% over the second quarter of 2012
  • Cash flows from operating activities before changes in working capital were $25.8 million
  • Adjusted fully diluted EPS of $0.30 compared to $0.15 in the second quarter of 2012
  • Redeemed $20.0 million of Senior Subordinated Notes ("Notes") in June

Other Announcements:

  • Dividend policy amended from semi-annual to quarterly payments and dividend of US$0.08 per common share declared, which is double the previous annualized amount
  • Notice of Redemption issued for the remaining $18.7 million of Notes to occur in August 2013
  • Completed purchase of real estate in Blythewood, South Carolina to be utilized as the new South Carolina facility

"We are extremely pleased with gross margin of 21.8%, which exceeded our expectation for the second quarter. The increase in gross margin reflects the combination of manufacturing cost reductions, an improvement in the spread between selling prices and raw material costs, and a more favorable product mix. We are now raising our gross margin goal from the previous 18%-20% to 20%-22% for the third and fourth quarters of 2013," stated Intertape President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Yull.

"The decrease in revenue and sales volume reflects the progress made in reducing sales of low-margin products, particularly in the second half of 2012. We are also observing some positive signs in our core business as tape sold through the industrial channel posted sales volume growth of approximately 3% year-to-date contributing to approximately 2% of total Company sales volume growth for the same period.

"The Board's recent dividend declaration, which is double the previous annualized amount, and its decision to redeem the remaining Notes are supported by the Company's continued financial improvements and positive outlook," concluded Mr. Yull.

On August 14, 2013, the Board of Directors amended the dividend policy to increase the frequency of the dividend from a semi-annual payment to a quarterly payment and concurrently declared a dividend of US$0.08 per common share payable on September 30, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business September 16, 2013. These dividends will be designated by the Company as "eligible dividends" as defined in Subsection 89(1) of the Income Tax Act (Canada).

Revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $193.5 million, a 2.2% decrease compared to $197.8 million for the second quarter of 2012 and a 1.6% sequential decrease compared to $196.7 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Revenue was lower in the second quarter of 2013 compared to both the second quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013 due to a decrease in sales volume partially offset by an increase in selling prices including the impact of product mix.

The decrease in sales volume of approximately 4% when compared to the second quarter of 2012 was primarily due to the progress made in reducing sales of low-margin products in the second half of 2012. The Company believes that a portion of the sequential decline in sales volume of approximately 5% was due to customers pre-buying during the first quarter of 2013 in advance of price increases effective late in the first quarter of 2013.

Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, increased approximately 2% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, increased approximately 4% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the first quarter of 2013. The increase in both periods was primarily due to higher selling prices and a shift in the mix of products sold.

Gross profit totalled $42.3 million in the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 17.0% from $36.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 and an increase of 10.3% from $38.3 million in the first quarter of 2013. Gross margin was 21.8%, 18.3% and 19.5% in the second quarter of 2013, in the second quarter of 2012 and in the first quarter of 2013, respectively.

When compared to the second quarter of 2012, gross profit and gross margin increased primarily due to the impact of manufacturing cost reductions, an improvement in the spread between selling prices and raw material costs and improved product mix. When compared to the first quarter of 2013, the increase in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to cost reductions within manufacturing overhead. The spread between selling prices and raw material costs remained relatively stable in the first and second quarter of 2013.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") totalled $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $20.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 and $23.0 million in first quarter of 2013. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A was 10.4%, 10.4% and 11.7% for the second quarter of 2013, the second quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013, respectively.

SG&A was $0.4 million lower in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012 primarily due to the timing of recording certain variable compensation expenses partially offset by an increase in stock-based compensation expense. When compared to the first quarter of 2013, SG&A decreased by $2.8 million primarily due to the non-recurrence of a provision with respect to the resolution of a contingent liability recorded in the first quarter of 2013 and a decrease in stock-based compensation expense related to Stock Appreciation Rights ("SAR") expense.

Adjusted EBITDA was $28.3 million for the second quarter of 2013, $21.7 million for the second quarter of 2012 and $24.0 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2013 compared to both the second quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013 is primarily due to higher gross profit, as discussed above.

Net earnings for the second quarter of 2013 totalled $15.1 million compared to a net loss of $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2012, and a net loss of $15.8 million for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in net earnings for the second quarter of 2013 compared to both the second quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013 was primarily due to reduced manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges and an increase in gross profit.

Adjusted net earnings amounted to $18.3 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of $8.9 million primarily due to higher gross profit and lower interest costs. Adjusted net earnings were $3.3 million higher for the second quarter of 2013 compared to $15.0 million for the first quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher gross profit.

Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2013 was $0.30 per share ($0.25 unadjusted), $0.15 per share ($0.07 loss unadjusted) for the second quarter of 2012 and $0.24 per share ($0.26 loss unadjusted) for the first quarter of 2013.

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 increased in the second quarter of 2013 by $7.8 million to $25.8 million from $18.0 million in the second quarter of 2012 and increased $6.7 million compared to the first quarter of 2013. The increase in cash flows from operations before changes in working capital for the second quarter of 2013 compared to both the first quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2012 is primarily due to higher gross margin.

The Company had total cash and loan availability of $51.6 million as of June 30, 2013, $69.7 million as of March 31, 2013 and $93.9 million as of June 30, 2012. The decrease of $18.1 million in total cash and loan availability between March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 was due to a $23.2 million increase in the total draw under the ABL, offset by an increase in cash of $4.0 million and an increase of $1.1 million in the borrowing base. The decrease of $42.3 million in total cash and loan availability between June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2013 was primarily due to the redemption of $100.0 million aggregate principal amount of Notes that occurred during the twelve month period ended June 30, 2013, partially offset by cash flows from operations during the same period. The Company had cash and loan availability under its ABL facility exceeding $53 million as of August 13, 2013.

Total debt as of June 30, 2013 was $157.3 million, a decrease of $31.2 million from June 30, 2012. The debt to trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.6 as of June 30, 2013 compared to 2.5 as of June 30, 2012.

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 third quarter of 2013 is expected to be slightly higher than the second quarter of 2013;
  • Gross margin for the third and fourth quarters of 2013 is expected to be between 20% and 22%. It is anticipated that the third quarter of 2013 will include higher manufacturing overhead primarily related to planned annual manufacturing maintenance;
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 is expected to be slightly lower than the second quarter of 2013;
  • Capital expenditures:
    • Expenditures for the third quarter of 2013 are expected to be $12 to $15 million;
    • Expenditures for 2013 are expected to total $48 to $54 million, including $24.0 million that was paid during the first half of 2013;
    • Expenditures for 2014 are expected to total $21 to $25 million; and
    • Purchases of equipment and real estate related to the relocation and modernization of the Columbia, South Carolina manufacturing operation are expected to total $40 to $45 million of which $2.7 million was spent in 2012 with the remainder expected to be spent in 2013 and 2014. These amounts are included in the estimates above;
  • Total debt at September 30, 2013 is expected to remain approximately the same compared to June 30, 2013;
  • The Company ceased production at its Richmond, Kentucky manufacturing facility in the fourth quarter of 2012 as well as shrink film production at its Truro, Nova Scotia facility in the first quarter of 2013. Cash savings related to these projects are expected to total approximately $3 to $4 million in 2013 and approximately $6 million annually in future years. The Company has started the process to relocate and modernize its Columbia, South Carolina manufacturing operation with state-of-the-art equipment in a new facility with the purchase of real estate in Blythewood, South Carolina ("South Carolina Project"). 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; and
  • With respect to the manufacturing rationalization projects announced to date:
    • Charges for the third quarter of 2013 related to equipment moves and workforce retention costs are expected to be $1 to $2 million;
    • Charges for the full year of 2013 related to equipment moves, workforce retention costs and environmental costs are expected to be $6 to $8 million. Cash outflows expected in 2013 are estimated to total $3 to $5 million, primarily related to equipment moves; and
    • Charges after 2013 related to equipment moves and workforce retention costs are estimated to be $5 to $7 million, primarily related to the South Carolina Project. Cash outflows expected after 2013 for equipment moves, workforce retention costs and environmental are estimated to be $8 to $11 million.

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 costs; (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.
