    Intertape Polymer Group Reports 2020 Third Quarter Results

    * Quarterly revenue increased 10% to $323.0 million * Quarterly IPG Net Earnings increased 113% to $26.7 million * Quarterly IPG Adjusted Net Earnings(1) increased 80% to $31.5 million * Quarterly adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 40% to $64.5 million * Quarterly cash flows from operating activities increased 40% to $67.5 million * Quarterly free cash flows(1) increased 52% to $59.2 millionMONTREAL and SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP) ("IPG" or the "Company") today released results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2020. All amounts in this press release are denominated in US dollars ("USD") unless otherwise indicated and all percentages are calculated on unrounded numbers. For more information, refer to the Company's management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") and unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.“The pandemic has impacted businesses differently depending on the markets they serve. What is becoming clear to us, is the structural change underway in e-commerce. Increased demand in e-commerce and building & construction as well as a return to positive performance in most of our other end markets drove increased growth in both our top and bottom line results and our ability to generate cash flows,” said Greg Yull, President and CEO of IPG. “These results were underpinned by strong plant performance, effective management of the spread between selling prices and raw materials costs and proactive cost reductions in the face of the pandemic. With the increased cash flows, we continued to prioritize debt repayment in the quarter which reduced our total leverage ratio by more than 0.6 of a turn to approximately 2.7 times. As part of our disciplined approach to capital allocation, we have increased our dividend by 6.8% to $0.63 cents per share on an annualized basis, which demonstrates our confidence in the cash generation of the business. Moving into the fourth quarter, we continue to experience consistent demand with a strong order book as we enter the peak season for e-commerce retail.”Third Quarter 2020 Highlights (as compared to third quarter 2019): * Revenue increased 10.0% to $323.0 million primarily due to increased demand in products with significant e-commerce end market exposure including water-activated tape and protective packaging. * Gross margin increased to 26.0% from 21.8% primarily due to effective management of the spread between selling prices and combined raw material and freight costs, and favorable plant performance from both increased production to meet demand and continued cost savings initiatives implemented in the prior quarter. * Net earnings attributable to the Company shareholders ("IPG Net Earnings") increased $14.2 million to $26.7 million ($0.45 basic and diluted earnings per share) primarily due to an increase in gross profit, partially offset by an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") due to an increase in the fair value of cash-settled share-based compensation and an increase in income tax expense mainly driven by improved profitability in 2020. * Adjusted net earnings increased $14.0 million to $31.5 million ($0.53 basic and diluted adjusted earnings per share)(1) primarily due to an increase in gross profit, partially offset by an increase in income tax expense mainly driven by improved profitability in 2020. * Adjusted EBITDA increased 40.1% to $64.5 million primarily due to an increase in gross profit. * Cash flows from operating activities increased $19.2 million to $67.5 million primarily due to an increase in gross profit. * Free cash flows increased by $20.2 million to $59.2 million primarily due to an increase in cash flows from operating activities.(1)  Non-GAAP financial measure. For definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.Other Highlights:Dividend DeclarationOn November 11, 2020 the Board of Directors amended the Company's quarterly policy to increase the annualized dividend by 6.8% from $0.59 to $0.63 per common share. The Board's decision to increase the dividend was based on the Company's strong financial position and positive outlook. Accordingly, on November 11, 2020, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.1575  per common share payable on December 31, 2020 to shareholders of record at the close of business on  December 16, 2020. These dividends will be designated by the Company as "eligible dividends" as defined in Subsection 89(1) of the Income Tax Act (Canada).Sustainability The Company continues to embrace sustainability as a key strategy of doing business to drive operational excellence. During the third quarter of 2020, the Company achieved Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Bronze status for NovaShield(R) Structure Membrane, as well as Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Silver status for Exlfilmplus(R) Shrink Film. The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard is a globally recognized measure of safer, more sustainable products. The Company's other sustainability achievements are highlighted in its 2019 Annual Sustainability Report.Read the full report at www.itape.com/sustainability.COVID-19The Company has implemented measures to prioritize the health and safety of its employees while protecting its assets, customers, suppliers and shareholders.  The following represent highlights of its efforts to this point: * The Company's facilities are open and operating, having qualified as essential under the applicable government orders and guidelines. Alternative capacity exists across all major product lines that would enable the continuation of operations if certain facilities were required to close; however, in most cases, this alternative capacity would produce less than current run rates. Management has adjusted, and will continue to adjust, production plans to align with changes in demand in order to manage working capital and associated cost levels. Management has successfully mitigated minor supply chain challenges experienced to date and continues to work closely with suppliers as supply chain risk mitigation plans are refined. * Management has put measures in place to enable employees to work safely according to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and other applicable social distancing guidelines, including requiring employees to wear protective face coverings provided by the Company while in our manufacturing facilities and to complete health interviews prior to entry on a regular basis. The Company has significantly increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing equipment and facilities in the context of COVID-19 and the Company continues to support remote work arrangements for approximately 20% of its workforce in North America. The remote work arrangements have not had any significant effect on the Company's ability to conduct its day-to-day operations. * Employee health coverage has been enhanced to include the cost of COVID-19 testing and treatment at no additional cost to employees, and the higher risk workforce or those experiencing illness of any kind are strongly encouraged to stay at home or shelter in place. As a result of these and other factors, we believe the current absentee rate at facilities in North America is at a manageable level and has not resulted in any material level of production disruption. * The Company has been effectively managing working capital, including inventory management and cost savings initiatives, and planned reductions in capital expenditures as a precautionary measure. In the third quarter of 2020, the Company generated cash flows from operating activities of $67.5 million and free cash flows (a non-GAAP financial measure defined and reconciled later in this document) of $59.2 million. Cash and loan availability was $372.2 million at the conclusion of the third quarter. Loan covenants were well within their limits with the consolidated secured net leverage ratio at 1.43, compared to the covenant maximum of 3.70, and the consolidated interest coverage ratio at 6.53, compared to the covenant minimum of 2.75 as of September 30, 2020.  Loan availability was $359.1 million as of September 30, 2020 which does not include the incremental accordion feature of $200.0 million available on the Company's credit facility (subject to the credit agreement's terms and lender approval).  Additionally, the 2018 Credit Facility (defined later in this document) has over three years remaining until maturity and the Senior Unsecured Notes (defined later in this document) have over six years remaining until maturity. See "Liquidity and Borrowings" below for more information.Outlook The Company's expectations for the fourth quarter are as follows: * Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2020 is expected to grow by 10% or more compared to the same period in 2019, excluding any significant unforeseen fluctuations in raw material prices which can have a direct impact on selling prices. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of  2020 is expected to be between $58 and $63 million.   * The Company expects capital expenditures to be between $45 and $50 million for fiscal year 2020, up from between $30 and $40 million previously estimated for the year, as a result of the Company accelerating investments in production capacity related to e-commerce products in order to address future increased demand beyond 2020.   * Free cash flows(1) for the fourth quarter of 2020 are expected to be between $35 and $45 million, which is in line with the corresponding period last year prior to the increase in capital expenditures discussed above.   * The Company expects a 20% to 25% effective tax rate for 2020, consistent with the updated range contained in the Company's second quarter MD&A.  This range excludes the potential impact of further changes in the mix of earnings between jurisdictions.  Cash taxes paid in 2020 are still expected to approximate income tax expense which reflects the decreased availability of tax attributes in the form of tax credits and loss carryforwards. Conference Call A conference call to discuss the Company's 2020 third quarter results will be held Thursday, November 12, 2020, at 10 A.M.

(2)Refers to the fair value adjustment recorded in the second quarter of 2020 related to the potential earn-out consideration obligation associated with the Nortech Acquisition.    EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA A reconciliation of the Company’s EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net earnings (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial 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 finance costs (income); (ii) income tax expense (benefit); (iii) amortization of intangible assets; and (iv) depreciation of property, plant and equipment. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before (i) manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges (recoveries); (ii) advisory fees and other costs associated with mergers and acquisitions activity, including due diligence, integration and certain non-cash purchase price accounting adjustments ("M&A Costs"); (iii) share-based compensation expense (benefit); (iv) impairment of goodwill; (v) impairment (reversal of impairment) of long-lived assets and other assets; (vi) write-down on assets classified as held-for-sale; (vii) (gain) loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment; and (viii) other discrete items as shown in the table below. 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 they allow investors to make a more meaningful comparison between periods of the Company’s performance, underlying business trends and the Company’s ongoing operations. The Company further believes these measures may be useful in comparing its operating performance with the performance of other companies that may have different financing and capital structures, and tax rates. Adjusted EBITDA excludes costs that are not considered by management to be representative of the Company’s underlying core operating performance, including certain non-operating expenses, non-cash expenses and, where indicated, non-recurring expenses. In addition, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are used by management to set targets and are metrics that, among others, can be used by the Company’s Human Resources and Compensation Committee to establish performance bonus metrics and payout, and by the Company’s lenders and investors to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to service its debt, finance capital expenditures and acquisitions, and provide for the payment of dividends to shareholders. The Company experiences normal business seasonality that typically results in adjusted EBITDA that is proportionately higher in the second, third and fourth quarters of the year relative to the first quarter.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation to Net Earnings (In millions of USD) (Unaudited)    Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  2020 2019 2020 2019  $ $ $ $ Net earnings27.2  12.5 56.1 29.5 Interest and other finance costs8.7  7.3 13.3 23.7 Income tax expense6.6  4.3 14.2 13.9 Depreciation and amortization16.2  15.7 47.6 45.2 EBITDA58.6  39.8 131.1 112.3 Manufacturing facility closures, restructuring and other related charges0.5  1.6 4.3 5.8 M&A Costs0.5  3.9 3.1 7.9 Share-based compensation expense4.7  0.5 4.5 2.0 Impairment of long-lived assets and other assets0.2  0.1 0.3 0.2 (Gain) loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment(0.0) 0.1 0.2 0.2 Adjusted EBITDA64.5  46.0 143.5 128.5           Free Cash FlowsFree cash flows is defined by the Company as cash flows from operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment.The Company is reporting free cash flows, a non-GAAP financial 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 the total cash movement for the period as described in the Company's financial statements, or to represent residual cash flow available for discretionary purposes, as it excludes other mandatory expenditures such as debt service.  The Company experiences normal business seasonality that typically results in cash flows from operating activities and free cash flows that are negative in the first quarter and progressively increase each quarter throughout the year with the majority being generated in the fourth quarter in line with required working capital investments.A reconciliation of free cash flows to cash flows from operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is set forth below.  Free Cash Flows Reconciliation to Cash Flows from Operating Activities (In millions of USD) (Unaudited)    Three months ended September 30, Nine months ended September 30,  2020 2019 2020 2019  $ $ $ $ Cash flows from operating activities67.5  48.4  91.0  61.7  Less purchases of property, plant and equipment(8.3) (9.3) (21.0) (38.6) Free cash flows59.2  39.0  69.9  23.1               CONTACT: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT: Ross Marshall Investor Relations (T) (416) 526-1563 (E) ross.marshall@loderockadvisors.com
