  • Full-year fiscal 2012 net income was $50.9 million, or $1.72 per diluted share; excluding certain items, net income was $61.0 million, or $2.06 per diluted share, an increase of 10.8% compared with last year
  • Net income for the quarter was $11.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share; excluding certain items, net income was $14.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared with $15.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the prior-year period
  • Company expects full-year fiscal 2013 net income, excluding certain items, to be in the range of $2.14 to $2.19 per diluted share 

A. Schulman, Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: SHLM) announced today earnings for the full fiscal year and fourth quarter ended August 31, 2012.  The Company reported full-year net income of $50.9 million, or $1.72 per diluted share, compared with $41.0 million, or $1.32 per diluted share, last year.  Excluding certain items, net income for the year was $61.0 million, or $2.06 per diluted share, compared with $58.0 million, or $1.86 per diluted share, for the prior year.  The translation effect of foreign currencies negatively impacted net income for the year by $3.6 million, or $0.12 per share, on a non-GAAP basis.

For the fourth quarter, the Company reported net income of $11.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the comparable period last year.  Excluding certain items, net income for the quarter was $14.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared with $15.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the prior-year period.  The translation effect of foreign currencies negatively impacted net income for the quarter by $1.7 million, or $0.06 per share, on a non-GAAP basis.

Fiscal 2012 net sales were $2.1 billion compared with $2.2 billion for fiscal 2011.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency, net sales for fiscal 2012 were consistent with the prior-year levels despite a volume decrease of 7.0%.

Net sales for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter were $524.4 million compared with $578.1 million for the same period last year. Net sales declined by $53.7 million, or 9.3%. Volume declined 3.7% in the quarter compared with the same quarter last year. Excluding the translation effect of foreign currencies, net sales increased by $3.7 million in the fourth quarter compared with the same period last year.

"The outstanding performance of the Americas and Asia Pacific regions, coupled with the dedicated efforts of our European team, allowed us to overcome the major challenge of the European economy.  The collective commitment of our global team enabled us to overcome difficult macroeconomic conditions as we continue to improve net income, operating profit per pound, cash flow from operations and earnings per share," said Joseph M. Gingo, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This marks the third consecutive year of adjusted earnings growth, and demonstrates the strength of our team, the benefit of our strategy and effective cost control.  We will continue to focus on growth opportunities in the Americas and Asia Pacific while maintaining our leadership position in Europe."

The Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures of net income excluding certain items and net income per diluted share excluding certain items.  These financial measures are used by management to monitor and evaluate the ongoing performance of the Company and to allocate resources.  The Company believes that the additional measures are useful to investors for financial analysis.  However, non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures.  Please see the table in this release for reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the nearest comparable GAAP results.  Results in the following discussion are presented on a non-GAAP basis excluding certain items.

Fiscal 2012 gross profit was $278.1 million, a decrease of $8.1 million compared with last year. Excluding the foreign currency impact, gross profit increased $5.4 million, compared with last year, primarily as a result of successful restructuring initiatives and increased sales of niche products.  Gross profit for the quarter was $66.8 million, compared with $71.4 million last year. Excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, gross profit increased by $2.2 million compared with the year-ago quarter, reflecting the Company's continual product mix improvement, the benefits of prior restructuring initiatives, and ongoing efforts to control costs. 

The Company's selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for fiscal 2012 decreased $14.0 million compared with the prior year, including a $5.4 million decrease in the fourth quarter compared with the prior-year fourth quarter.  These decreases were primarily attributable to the Company realizing SG&A expense synergies in connection with the continued integration of acquisitions, the benefit of successful restructuring initiatives, favorable foreign currency translation and successful cost control efforts. Additionally, the fourth quarter of the prior year included a settlement involving a business relationship. 

Europe, Middle East and Africa ("EMEA") – For the full year, net sales in the EMEA segment were $1.4 billion compared with $1.5 billion in fiscal 2011. Volume declined by 8.3% on a year-over-year basis. Operating income was $71.8 million, a decline of $14.8 million compared with the prior year. The decrease was due to the lower gross profit driven by the reduced volume, partially offset by a $10.6 million decrease in SG&A expenses. SG&A expenses were reduced as a result of EMEA's successful restructuring initiatives and its continued aggressive actions to control costs. Foreign currency translation also contributed to the decline and adversely impacted EMEA operating income by $4.5 million in fiscal 2012.

In the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, EMEA net sales were $333.8 million, a decrease of $60.9 million, or 15.4%, compared with the prior-year period. Foreign exchange effect negatively impacted net sales by $49.5 million, accounting for 81% of the fourth-quarter decrease in net sales.

EMEA gross profit was $37.8 million for the quarter, a decrease of $9.0 million compared with the same three-month period last year.  Foreign currency translation negatively impacted EMEA gross profit by $5.6 million or approximately 62% of the decline.

EMEA segment operating income for the quarter was $13.9 million, a decrease of $5.9 million compared with the same period last year.  Foreign exchange negatively impacted operating income by $2.2 million or approximately 37% of the decrease.

The Americas For the full year, the Americas reported net sales of $558.9 million, an increase of 8.1% from $516.8 million last year. The increase in net sales was a result of the improved mix in all product families. Incremental fiscal 2012 net sales of $18.0 million from acquisitions that closed in fiscal 2011 were almost entirely offset by the negative impact of foreign currency translation in fiscal 2012.    

Operating income for the year ended August 31, 2012 more than doubled to $28.9 million compared with $14.0 million last year. Operating income increased primarily due to improved gross profit per pound.  In addition, SG&A decreased by $2.3 million primarily related to the prior-year settlement involving a business relationship. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating income by $1.3 million.

In the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, net sales for the Americas were $154.2 million, an increase of $9.0 million, or 6.2%, compared with the prior-year period. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to improved product mix in the Company's specialty powders and masterbatch product families. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted net sales by $7.4 million.

Gross profit for the Americas was $23.5 million in the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, an increase of $3.5 million compared with the same period last year. The increases in gross profit and gross profit per pound for the fourth quarter of 17.7% and 15.0%, respectively, were primarily in the engineered plastics product family. The Company was able to increase margins by improving product mix and implementing operational efficiencies from restructuring initiatives in the Americas. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted gross profit by $1.2 million.

Operating income for the Americas for the quarter was $9.5 million compared with $1.9 million last year. The nearly 400% increase in operating income was primarily due to improved gross profit per pound and a decrease of $4.1 million in SG&A expenses which included a settlement involving a business relationship in the fourth quarter of 2011. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted operating income by $0.4 million.

Asia Pacific ("APAC") – Net sales for APAC for the year ended August 31, 2012 were $144.7 million, an increase of $2.5 million or 1.8% despite a reduction in volume of 8.1% compared with the prior-year period.  The reduction in volume was primarily attributable to the roto compounding product line as a result of the prior successful restructuring initiative in Australia and continued focus on products with higher technical requirements. Partially offsetting this reduction, the masterbatch and engineered plastics product families experienced a significant volume increase in higher technical component products compared with the prior year.  Foreign currency translation favorably impacted net sales by $1.4 million.  Gross profit increased to $22.0 million in fiscal 2012, up 27.5% from a year ago, and operating income increased 81.6% to $10.1 million

In the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter, net sales for APAC were $36.4 million, a decrease of $1.7 million or 4.5% compared with the same prior-year period.  Foreign currency translation negatively impacted net sales by $0.5 million.  Gross profit for APAC for the quarter was $5.5 million, an increase of 19.5% compared with last year.

APAC segment operating income was $2.2 million for the quarter compared with $1.7 million last year. The 27.8% increase in profitability was principally due to the increase in gross profit partially offset by a slight increase in SG&A expenses.


Working Capital/Cash Flow From Operations/Share Repurchase
Working capital was 57 days at the end of the fiscal 2012 compared with 60 days at the end of fiscal 2011.  The improvement was attributable to continued progress of the Company's working capital management process.

Net cash provided from operations was $99.5 million and $68.9 million for fiscal years 2012 and 2011, respectively, for a combined total of $168.4 million over the two-year period. The improvement of $30.6 million in cash provided by operations year-over-year was primarily due to the improvements in earnings and working capital management.

The Company's cash and cash equivalents decreased $31.7 million since August 31, 2011. This decrease was driven primarily by the acquisition of Elian SAS for $64.9 million in net cash consideration, the repurchase of treasury shares totaling $26.8 million, expenditures for capital projects of $34.0 million, and dividend payments of $20.9 million. Combined, these four uses of cash and cash equivalents totaled $146.6 million, and were partially offset by the net cash provided by operations.

Business Outlook
"In fiscal 2012, we delivered on our promise to control what we could control in a tough environment, and I'm pleased with our results.  With that said, we'll aggressively look for ways to continue to deliver value to our shareholders given expected tepid global growth, at best, in fiscal 2013," Gingo said. "Our goal is to drive year-over-year growth in earnings regardless of the macro climate, and we are focused on delivering this goal in 2013 in the same way as we executed on this commitment in 2012."

Gingo continued, "Given our execution of prior restructuring activities, successful integration of strategic acquisitions, internal value-added growth initiatives and our unwavering commitment to executing on our proven strategies, we believe we can grow earnings in the face of existing global economic pressures.  Overall, we anticipate that our fiscal 2013 full-year net income will be in the range of $2.14 to $2.19 per diluted share.  However, we do anticipate pressure in our fiscal 2013 first-quarter results but expect stronger performance in subsequent quarters compared with the prior year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes certain financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").  These non-GAAP financial measures include: net income excluding certain items and net income per diluted share excluding certain items. However, non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures, and tables included in this release reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for these purposes are net income and net income per diluted share.  The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

While the Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are very significant limitations associated with their use.  These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may not be reported by all of the Company's competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of the Company's competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation.  The Company compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.

Cautionary Note on Forward-Looking Statements
A number of the matters discussed in this document that are not historical or current facts deal with potential future circumstances and developments and may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations and include known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which management is unable to predict or control, that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those suggested by these forward-looking statements, and that could adversely affect the Company's future financial performance, include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • worldwide and regional economic, business and political conditions, including continuing economic uncertainties in some or all of the Company's major product markets or countries where the Company has operations;

  • competitive factors, including intense price competition;
  • fluctuations in the value of currencies in major areas where the Company operates;
  • volatility of prices and availability of the supply of energy and raw materials that are critical to the manufacture of the Company's products, particularly plastic resins derived from oil and natural gas;
  • changes in customer demand and requirements;
  • effectiveness of the Company to achieve the level of cost savings, productivity improvements, growth and other benefits anticipated from acquisitions, joint ventures and restructuring initiatives;

  • uncertainties regarding the resolution of pending and future litigation and other claims;
  • the performance of the global automotive market; and
  • further adverse changes in economic or industry conditions, including global supply and demand conditions and prices for products.

The risks and uncertainties identified above are not the only risks the Company faces.
