Intertape Polymer Group Reports Improved Third Quarter 2013

08:00 EST Wednesday, November 13, 2013

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and SARASOTA, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - Nov. 13, 2013) - Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP) ("Intertape" or the "Company") today released results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. All amounts are denominated in US dollars unless otherwise indicated and all percentages are calculated on unrounded numbers.

Third Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Gross margin increased to 20.0% from 17.6% in the third quarter of 2012
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $26.8 million increased 19.9% over the third quarter of 2012
  • Cash flows from operating activities before changes in working capital were $25.0 million
  • Adjusted fully diluted EPS of $0.28 compared to $0.19 in the third quarter of 2012
  • Redeemed remaining $18.7 million of Senior Subordinated Notes ("Notes") in August

Other Announcements:

  • Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.08 per common share

"We are pleased with the increase in gross margin over last year which reflects manufacturing cost reductions and an increase in the spread between raw material costs and selling prices. For 2014, we expect gross margin to be between 20% and 22%. This range assumes temporary costs associated with the relocation of our South Carolina manufacturing operation offset by continued success with gross margin expansion initiatives," stated Intertape President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Yull.

"The increase in revenue reflects an increase in selling prices, including the impact of product mix, which was offset by a decrease in sales volume reflecting our decision to reduce sales of low-margin products.

"During the quarter, the Company redeemed the remaining $18.7 million of high interest-bearing Notes. The lower average cost of debt combined with the reduction in debt significantly reduced interest expense year-to-date," concluded Mr. Yull.

On November 12, 2013 the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.08 per common share payable on December 30, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business December 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).

The Company's revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $199.9 million, an increase of 0.7% compared to $198.5 million for the third quarter of 2012. Revenue was higher in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to an increase in selling prices, including the impact of product mix, partially offset by a decrease in sales volume. The decrease in sales volume of approximately 3% when compared to the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to the progress the Company made in reducing sales of low-margin products in the second half of 2012 partially offset by increased sales of new products. Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, increased approximately 4% in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012. The increase in selling prices was primarily due to higher selling prices of equivalent units and a shift in the mix of products sold.

The Company's revenue for the third quarter of 2013 increased 3.3% sequentially compared to $193.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. Revenue increased in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to higher sales volume partially offset by a decrease in selling prices, including the impact of product mix. The increase in sales volume of approximately 5% was primarily due to increased demand for tape and film product lines. The Company believes that some of the increased demand for film products in the third quarter of 2013 was due to customers pre-buying in response to an announcement of a price increase to take effect on orders placed on or after September 30, 2013. The Company also believes that the second quarter of 2013 volume was lower partially due to customers pre-buying both tape and film products during the first quarter of 2013 in advance of price increases that took effect in the first quarter of 2013. Selling prices, including the impact of product mix, decreased approximately 2% in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in selling prices was primarily due to a shift in the mix of products sold and lower selling prices of equivalent units.

Gross profit totalled $40.0 million in the third quarter of 2013, an increase of 14.3% from $35.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 and a decrease of 5.4% from $42.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. Gross margin was 20.0%, 17.6% and 21.8% in the third quarter of 2013, in the third quarter of 2012 and in the second quarter of 2013, respectively.

When compared to the third quarter of 2012, gross profit and gross margin increased primarily due to the impact of manufacturing cost reductions and an increase in the spread between raw material costs and selling prices. When compared to the second quarter of 2013, the decrease in gross profit was primarily due to an increase in overhead related to the planned annual maintenance partially offset by an increase in sales volume. The decrease in gross margin was primarily related to an increase in overhead related to the planned annual maintenance. The spread between selling prices and raw material costs remained relatively stable in the first nine months of 2013.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") totalled $20.5 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $19.3 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $20.2 million in second quarter of 2013. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A was 10.3%, 9.7% and 10.4% for the third quarter of 2013, the third quarter of 2012 and the second quarter of 2013, respectively. SG&A increased when compared to both periods primarily due to an increase in stock-based compensation expense.

Adjusted EBITDA was $26.8 million for the third quarter of 2013, $22.3 million for the third quarter of 2012 and $28.3 million for the second quarter of 2013. The increase in adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to higher gross margin. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily due to an increase in overhead related to the planned annual maintenance.

Net earnings for the third quarter of 2013 totalled $14.4 million compared to net earnings of $10.9 million for the third quarter of 2012 and net earnings of $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. The increase in net earnings for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to an increase in gross profit and a decrease in interest expense partially offset by an increase in stock-based compensation expense. The decrease in net earnings for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2013 was primarily due to a decrease in gross profit.

Adjusted net earnings amounted to $17.5 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $11.8 million for the third quarter of 2012. Adjusted net earnings were $5.7 million higher for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 primarily due to higher gross profit and lower interest expense. Adjusted net earnings were $0.8 million lower for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $18.3 million for the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to a decrease in gross profit.

Adjusted fully diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2013 was $0.28 per share, a $0.09 per share increase compared to the third quarter of 2012 and a $0.02 per share decrease compared to the second 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 third quarter of 2013 by $3.8 million to $25.0 million from $21.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 and decreased $0.8 million compared to the second quarter of 2013. The increase for the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012 was primarily due to higher gross profit. The decrease over the second quarter of 2013 was primarily due to lower gross profit.

The Company had total cash and loan availability of $44.5 million as of September 30, 2013, $51.6 million as of June 30, 2013 and $87.6 million as of September 30, 2012. The decrease of $7.1 million in total cash and loan availability between June 30, 2013 and September 30, 2013 was due to the redemption of an aggregate principal amount of $18.7 million of Notes, a $5.2 million decrease in the borrowing base and the payment of a $4.9 million dividend, partially offset by free cash flows of $22.5 million for the quarter. The decrease of $43.1 million in total cash and loan availability between September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2013 was primarily due to the increase in total borrowings under the ABL facility, which was used to fund the redemption of an aggregate principal amount of $93.7 million of Notes that occurred during the twelve month period ended September 30, 2013. This increase was partially offset by cash flows from operations during the same period. The Company had cash and loan availability under its Asset-Based Loan facility exceeding $45 million as of November 12, 2013.

Total debt as of September 30, 2013 was $137.7 million, a decrease of $13.6 million from December 30, 2012. The debt to trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA ratio was 1.4 as of September 30, 2013.

Outlook

The Company will continue to focus on developing and selling higher margin products, reducing variable manufacturing costs and executing on the previously announced manufacturing rationalization projects.

The Company's financial projections include the following:

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 is expected to be lower than the third quarter of 2013 which is reflective of normal seasonality;
  • Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2013 is expected to be between 20% and 22%;
    • Assuming stable or improving macroeconomic conditions, the Company expects gross margin to be in the range of 20% to 22% for 2014. This reflects further improvement resulting from gross margin expansion initiatives partially offset by approximately $3 to $7 million of temporary operating cost increases, the majority of which is expected in the second half of 2014 with the remainder expected in the first half of 2015. These costs are related to actions being taken to maintain the uninterrupted supply of products to our customers during the relocation of the South Carolina manufacturing operation from Columbia to Blythewood;
  • After the South Carolina relocation has been completed and start-up inefficiencies have been resolved, the Company expects gross margin to be between 22% and 24%;
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 is expected to be somewhat lower than the third quarter of 2013 and substantially higher than the fourth quarter of 2012;
  • Capital expenditures:
    • Expenditures for the fourth quarter of 2013 are expected to be $12 to $18 million, depending on the timing of delivery of several large pieces of new equipment;
    • Expenditures for 2013 are expected to total $47 to $52 million;
    • Expenditures for 2014 are expected to total $25 to $29 million excluding any new high-return projects that may arise; and
    • 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"). Purchases of equipment and real estate related to the South Carolina Project are expected to total $43 to $46 million of which $2.7 million was spent in 2012, $23 to $25 million is expected to be spent in 2013 and the remainder is expected to be spent primarily in 2014. These amounts are included in the estimates above;
  • Total debt at December 31, 2013 is expected to be the same or slightly lower compared to September 30, 2013 primarily due to an increase in projected capital expenditures;
  • 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 million in 2013 and approximately $6 million annually in future years. The Company anticipates that the South Carolina Project will have 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 fourth quarter of 2013 primarily related to equipment moves and workforce retention costs are expected to be approximately $2 million;
    • Charges for the full year of 2013 primarily related to environmental costs, workforce retention costs and equipment moves costs are expected to be $6 to $8 million. Cash outflows expected in 2013 are estimated to total $2 to $4 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

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under applicable securities legislation, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net earnings (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per share and free cash flows. As required by applicable securities legislation, the Company has provided reconciliations of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Investors and other readers are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures 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), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, 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), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, 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.

Free Cash Flows

Free cash flows, a non-GAAP measurement that is defined by the Company as cash flows from operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment and other assets. The Company is including this non-GAAP measure because it is used by Management and investors in evaluating the Company's performance and liquidity. Free cash flows does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Free cash flows should not be interpreted to represent residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, as it excludes other mandatory expenditures such as debt service. A reconciliation of free cash flows to cash flows from operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is set forth below.
