Sealed Air Corporation (SEE) today announced financial results for the first quarter 2019.

"Our solid performance in the first quarter reflects strong execution of our Reinvent SEE strategy, designed to drive growth and earnings power. Adjusted EPS increased 16% on higher EBITDA and share repurchases. Adjusted EBITDA increased 10% in constant dollars and margin was up 130 basis points to over 19%, as a result of our efforts to improve productivity," said Ted Doheny, Sealed Air's President and CEO.

"We are focusing on our 4P'SSM of Reinvent SEETM - Performance, People, Products, Processes and Sustainability, as the foundation of everything we do. In addition, our acquisition of Automated Packaging Systems, which we announced earlier today, expands the breadth of our automation solutions and sustainability offerings and provides access to growth opportunities."

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare first quarter 2019 results to first quarter 2018 results from continuing operations. Year-over-year financial discussions present operating results from continuing operations as reported, on an organic basis and on a constant dollar basis. Organic refers to changes in unit volume and price performance and excludes acquisition and divestiture activity and the impact of currency translation. Constant dollar refers to changes in unit volume, price performance and acquisition and divestiture activity and excludes the impact of currency translation. Additionally, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted financial measures, such as Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), Adjusted Net Earnings, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share ("Adjusted EPS") and Adjusted Tax Rate, exclude the impact of specified items ("Special Items"), such as restructuring charges, restructuring associated costs, gains and losses related to acquisition and divestiture of businesses, special tax items ("Tax Special Items") and certain other infrequent or one-time items. Please refer to the supplemental information included with this press release for a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Business Highlights

In the first quarter, Sealed Air created profitable growth on a constant dollar basis against macro headwinds and a tough year over year comparable.

Food Care first quarter net sales of $680 million decreased 2% as reported. Currency fluctuations had a negative impact on Food Care net sales of 6%, or $40 million. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased 3%, with favorable price of 3% and a 40 basis point increase in volume. Food Care delivered favorable volume trends across all regions with the exception of EMEA. Adjusted EBITDA increased 6% to $143 million, and margin expanded 170 basis points to 21%. Currency fluctuations had an $8 million unfavorable impact on Adjusted EBITDA. On a constant dollar basis, Adjusted EBITDA increased 12%. Adjusted EBITDA performance was driven by productivity and cost savings related to the Company’s Reinvent SEE initiatives and lower input costs, partially offset by higher operating costs.

Product Care first quarter net sales of $433 million decreased less than 1% as reported. Currency fluctuations had a negative impact on Product Care net sales of 3%, or $13 million. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased 2%, including 6%, or $26 million, from acquisitions and 1% on favorable pricing. Volume declined 4% predominately in North America and APAC due to a tough year over year comparable and a more challenging industrial sector. Adjusted EBITDA was $75 million compared to $78 million in the first quarter 2018. Currency fluctuations had a $2 million unfavorable impact on Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 17% declined 70 basis points due to higher operating costs and lower volume, partially offset by productivity and cost savings related to the Company’s Reinvent SEE initiatives and lower input costs.

Sealed Air to Acquire Automated Packaging Systems

In a separate press release issued today, Sealed Air announced an agreement to acquire Automated Packaging Systems, Inc. (APS), a leading manufacturer of high-reliability, automated bagging systems, for a purchase price of $510 million on a cash and debt free basis. The acquisition is expected to close early in the third quarter of 2019. Upon the transaction closing, the Company plans to update its 2019 full year outlook on the second quarter earnings conference call tentatively scheduled for July 31, 2019.

First Quarter 2019 U.S. GAAP Summary

Net sales of $1.1 billion decreased 2% on an as reported basis. Currency had a negative impact on total net sales of 5%, or $53 million.

Net earnings on an as reported basis was $64 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, which was unfavorably impacted by $28 million of Special Items, primarily related to $24 million ($18 million, net of taxes) of restructuring charges and other associated costs. This compares to net loss in the first quarter 2018 of $208 million, or $1.25 per diluted share, which was unfavorably impacted by $293 million of Special Items, primarily composed of $290 million of tax expense for one-time tax on unrepatriated foreign earnings pursuant to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ("TCJA").

The effective tax rate in the first quarter 2019 was 32.1%, compared to 283.3% in the first quarter 2018. The 2018 rate was negatively affected by $290 million of provisional tax expense related to TCJA.

First Quarter 2019 Non-U.S. GAAP Summary

Sealed Air generated profitable growth on a constant dollar basis despite macro headwinds and a tough year over year comparable. Net sales increased 3% in constant dollars reflecting favorable price impact of 2% and contribution from acquisitions of 2%, partially offset by a decline in volume of 1%. By region on a constant dollar basis, sales increased 3% in North America (inclusive of Mexico and Central America), 3% in Asia Pacific and 25% in South America. South America growth was driven by USD-based indexed pricing on essentially flat volume. EMEA declined 1% in constant dollars.

Adjusted EBITDA was $216 million, or 19% of net sales in the first quarter 2019 compared to $205 million, or 18% in 2018. Currency fluctuations had an unfavorable $10 million, or 5%, impact on Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter 2019. The improvement in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to productivity and cost savings related to Reinvent SEE initiatives and lower input costs, partially offset by higher operating costs and a decline in volume.

Adjusted earnings per diluted share was $0.59 for the first quarter 2019 compared to $0.51 in the first quarter 2018. The Adjusted Tax Rate was 29.5% in the first quarter 2019, compared to 30.3% in the first quarter 2018.

Cash Flow and Net Debt

Cash flow provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was an inflow of $65 million, compared to an outflow of $34 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Capital expenditures were $49 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Free Cash Flow, defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures was an inflow of $16 million in the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to an outflow of $63 million, excluding $14 million in payments related to the sale of Diversey in the three months ended March 31, 2018.

During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company used cash in financing activities of $34 million, which includes share repurchases of $18 million or approximately 406,000 shares and cash dividends paid of $25 million.

Net Debt, defined as total debt less cash and cash equivalents, increased to $3.3 billion as of March 31, 2019 from $3.2 billion as of December 31, 2018.

Outlook for Full Year 2019

For the full year 2019, the Company reconfirms its previously provided outlook. Net Sales are expected to increase 2% as reported and 5% in constant dollars. The Company continues to expect currency to have an unfavorable impact of approximately $130 million on net sales. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $925 to $945 million. The Company continues to expect currency to have an unfavorable impact of approximately $25 million on Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $2.65 to $2.75, which is based on 156 million shares outstanding and an anticipated Adjusted Tax Rate of 26%. Free Cash Flow is expected to be approximately $250 million, assuming capital expenditures of approximately $200 million and cash restructuring payments of approximately $115 million.

Website Information

We routinely post important information for investors on our website, www.sealedair.com, in the Investors section. We use this website as a means of disclosing material, non-public information and for complying with our disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor the Investors section of our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, presentations and webcasts. The information contained on, or that may be accessed through, our website is not incorporated by reference into, and is not a part of, this document.

Non-U.S. GAAP Information

In this press release and supplement, we have included several non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including Net Debt, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted EPS, net sales on an "organic" and a “constant dollar” basis, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Tax Rate, as our management believes these measures are useful to investors. We present results and guidance, adjusted to exclude the effects of Special Items and their related tax impact that would otherwise be included under U.S. GAAP, to aid in comparisons with other periods or prior guidance. In addition, non-U.S. GAAP measures are used by management to review and analyze our operating performance and, along with other data, as internal measures for setting annual budgets and forecasts, assessing financial performance, providing guidance and comparing our financial performance with our peers and may also be used for purposes of determining incentive compensation. The non-U.S. GAAP information has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP information. It does not purport to represent any similarly titled U.S. GAAP information and is not an indicator of our performance under U.S. GAAP. Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that we present may not be comparable with similarly titled measures used by others. Investors are cautioned against placing undue reliance on these non-U.S. GAAP measures. For a reconciliation of these U.S. GAAP measures to non-U.S. GAAP measures and other important information on our use of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, see the attached supplementary information entitled “Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows” (under the section entitled “Non-U.S. GAAP Free Cash Flow”), “Reconciliation of Net Earnings and Net Earnings Per Common Share to Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings and Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings Per Common Share,” “Reconciliation of Net Earnings to Non-U.S. GAAP Total Company Adjusted EBITDA,” “Components of Change in Net Sales by Segment” and “Components of Change in Net Sales by Region.” Information reconciling forward-looking U.S. GAAP measures to non-U.S. GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

We have not provided guidance for the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, as they are not available without unreasonable effort due to the high variability, complexity, and low visibility with respect to certain Special Items, including restructuring charges, gains and losses related to acquisition and divestiture of businesses, the ultimate outcome of certain legal or tax proceedings, and other unusual gains and losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to our results computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Due to changes in the value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar, translating our financial results from foreign currencies to U.S. dollars may result in a favorable or unfavorable impact. It is important that we consider the effects of foreign currency translation when we view our results and plan our strategies. Nonetheless, we cannot control changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Consequently, when our management looks at our financial results to measure the core performance of our business, we exclude the impact of foreign currency translation by translating our current period results at prior period foreign currency exchange rates. We also may exclude the impact of foreign currency translation when making incentive compensation determinations. As a result, our management believes that these presentations are useful internally and may be useful to our investors.
