AVINTIV Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Aug 10, 2015, 17:30 ET from AVINTIV Specialty Materials Inc.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AVINTIV Specialty Materials Inc. ("AVINTIV" or the "Company") reported results of operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

AVINTIV's Chief Executive Officer, J. Joel Hackney Jr., stated, "I am very pleased with our continued strength in our core markets and the integration of our strategic acquisitions.  We continued to witness strong progress with our strategic growth initiatives associated with closing the Dounor acquisition during the second quarter. We are clearly realizing strong synergies across the segments as we are executing our global growth strategy.  Berry Plastics' announced acquisition of AVINTIV is truly a testament to the strength of our business, our global scale, and our track record of growth and margin enhancement. Berry shares our commitment to developing and delivering high-impact solutions for our customers."

Second Quarter 2015 Highlights:

  • Double-Digit Volume Growth Continues in Second Quarter and First Half of 2015
    • Volumes sold for the second quarter of 2015 were 130.5 thousand metric tons ("kMT"), a 28.5 kMT increase compared with the prior year period.  The primary driver of the volume increase was related to the acquisition of Providência.  North America volume growth was driven by Fiberweb and higher demand in the hygiene, wipes and technical specialties markets. South America benefited from Providência, improved hygiene markets and a manufacturing line upgrade.  In Asia, volume growth was driven by higher demand in the hygiene markets.  Volume reductions in Europe were driven by the consolidation of our manufacturing facilities in Germany in connection with the exit of the European roofing business during 2014.
    • Net sales increased $17.8 million, or 4.0%, to $457.7 million in the second quarter of 2015 compared with $439.9 million in the second quarter of 2014.  Providência contributed $47.6 million in incremental sales growth.  Excluding acquisitions, incremental volume increased net sales by $2.4 million as improvements were realized across all regions except Europe. Continued strong demand in the hygiene, wipes and technical specialties markets enabled North America to mitigate weather impacts in the construction markets and the closure of a manufacturing facility.  Improvements in the hygiene markets and a recent manufacturing line upgrade helped provide $2.5 million of incremental sales from volume growth in South America.  Currency translation negatively impacted the European segment by $21.0 million in the second quarter.
    • Gross profit increased $18.9 million, or 21.9%, to $105.5 million in the second quarter.  The primary driver of the increase related to the contributions from Providência.  In addition, improved spreads as a result of favorable raw material trends in the current period provided year-over-year improvements in North America and South America.  Another driver of the increase was a reduction in the overhead component of cost of goods sold, which was driven by the benefits of cost reduction initiatives implemented during the prior year, including the benefits from acquisition integration initiatives, as well as manufacturing efficiencies.  As a result, gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased to 23.1% from 19.7% compared with the prior year period.
  • Global Transformation Initiatives Drives Record EBITDA
    • In the second quarter of 2015, adjusted EBITDA increased 34.1%, or $18.9 million, to $74.2 million compared with the prior year.  Excluding acquisitions, EBITDA increased 12.1% driven by growth in core markets, manufacturing efficiencies, global cost optimization and focus on operational excellence.

Note: This earning release includes Adjusted EBITDA, a metric that is not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"). See the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section at the end of this earnings release for the definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to its most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

  • Berry Plastics to Acquire AVINTIV Inc. Creating Global Leader in Plastics Packaging and Engineered Specialty Materials
    • On July 31, 2015, the Company entered into a definitive agreement with Berry Plastics Group, Inc. to acquire the Company from private equity funds managed by the Blackstone Group LP for approximately $2.45 billion in cash on a debt-free, cash-free basis.  The proposed transaction is expected to close by the end of calendar year 2015 and is subject to customary closing conditions.  Berry Plastics Group, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer and marketer of value-added plastic consumer packaging and engineered materials.

EARNINGS CONFERENCE CALL

As a result of the announced Berry Plastics' acquisition of AVINTIV, the Company will not conduct an investor conference call on August 11.

SECOND QUARTER 2015 RESULTS

As previously announced, the Company completed the acquisition of the French hygiene producer Dounor in April 2015.  Dounor provided $18.0 million of incremental sales during the second quarter of 2015 and $2.9 million in gross profit.

For the second quarter of 2015, volumes increased net sales by $68 million compared with the prior year period.  The primary driver of the increase related to the acquisition of Providência, which provided $47.6 million of incremental net sales during the second quarter of 2015.  Excluding acquisitions, volumes increased $2.4 million as improvements were realized across all regions except Europe where the Company exited the European roofing business during 2014.

For the second quarter of 2015, the impacts of net selling prices/product mix lowered net sales by $26.4 million compared with the second quarter of 2014.  The decrease, which was primarily driven by passing through lower raw material costs associated with index-based selling agreements to our customers, impacted both North America and South America.  In addition, lower sales prices associated with lower raw material costs were partially offset by positive contributions from product mix movements and other underlying price increases. Combined, these factors had a $20.7 million impact on net sales. Results in Asia were impacted by a higher proportion of sales in the hygiene markets compared with the healthcare markets, which have higher average selling prices. Other factors that contributed to the $4.6 million decrease included increased activity in the spot markets and a competitive pricing environment.  Unfavorable product mix movements in Europe more than offset price improvement initiatives implemented across the region.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2015 was $105.5 million, a $18.9 million increase compared with the prior year period.  The primary driver of the increase related to the contributions from Providência, which represented an incremental $11.4 million for the period. The acquisition of Dounor contributed an additional $2.9 million since its acquisition date. In addition, improved spreads as a result of favorable raw material trends in the current period provided year-over-year improvements in North America and South America.  Another factor that contributed to the increase in gross profit was a reduction in our overhead component of cost of goods sold.  Primary drivers include the benefits of cost reduction initiatives implemented during the prior year, including the benefits from acquisition integration initiatives, as well as manufacturing efficiencies.  These amounts were partially offset by the consolidation of our manufacturing facilities in Germany in connection with the exit of the European roofing business during 2014 and unfavorable product mix movements.  As a result, gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the second quarter of 2015 increased to 23.1% from 19.7% compared with the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were $66.2 million, a $2.0 million increase compared with the prior year period.  The increase was primarily related to the inclusion of Dounor since their acquisition date, which added an additional $2.0 million for the period.  In addition, incremental costs associated with Providência totaled $1.5 million for the period.  Other selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $1.5 million compared to the prior year.  Factors that contributed to the decrease included lower freight costs, a result of exiting the European roofing business during 2014 and an increase in local sales in South America.  In addition, we realized lower sales and marketing expenses primarily as a result of the integration of Fiberweb.  These amounts were partially offset by higher employee-related expenses as well as increased sponsor-related management fees and costs related to third-party fees and expenses.  Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased slightly to 14.5% for the second quarter of 2015 from 14.6% compared with the prior year period.

Special charges were $6.6 million for the second quarter of 2015 and included $2.8 million related to professional fees and other transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Providência and Dounor as well as Fiberweb integration costs.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2015 was $32.5 million compared to operating income of $35.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 and a loss of $5.7 million in the second quarter of 2014.  The overall increase in operating income was primarily driven by increased profit contribution from acquired businesses, productivity improvements and the benefits from favorable raw material trends on spreads.

Interest expense for the second quarter of 2015 was $27.0 million compared with $20.9 million for the prior year period.  The increase primarily relates to interest expense and the amortization of debt issuance costs associated with the Term Loans and Senior Unsecured Notes, both of which have been used to fund recent acquisitions.

Foreign currency and other, net provided $3.2 million benefit during the period.  The main driver of the expense related to foreign currency gains on non-operating assets and liabilities, primarily intercompany loans, impacting South America as the U.S. dollar weakened during the quarter.  We also incurred $13.0 million of debt modification and extinguishment costs during the quarter related to the incremental term loan amendment, the proceeds of which were used to purchase Dounor and repay existing indebtedness.  Income tax during the quarter was an expense of $3.3 million and earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests was $1.2 million.

As a result of the above, the Company reported a net loss attributable to AVINTIV of $8.7 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared with a net loss of $40.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 and a net loss of $19.7 million for the second quarter of 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $74.2 million compared with $73.5 million for the first quarter of 2015 and $55.3 million for the second quarter of 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined and reconciled to net income attributable to AVINTIV below.

SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2015 RESULTS

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, volumes increased net sales by $146.5 million compared with the six months ended June 28, 2014.  The primary driver of the increase related to the acquisition of Providência, which provided $121.3 million of incremental net sales during the current period.  Continued strong demand in the hygiene, wipes and technical specialties markets enabled North America to mitigate weather impacts in the construction markets and the closure of a manufacturing facility.  Improvements in the hygiene markets and a recent manufacturing line upgrade helped provide incremental volume growth in South America.  Softer volumes impacted the healthcare and technical specialty markets in the region.  Volumes in Europe were down primarily driven by lower sales into the hygiene and industrial markets.   In addition, the volume reductions in Europe also reflected the consolidation of manufacturing facilities in Germany in connection with the exit of the European roofing business during 2014.  In Asia, improvements were driven by higher hygiene sales volumes.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the impacts of net selling prices/product mix lowered net sales by $41.4 million compared with the six months ended June 28, 2014.  The decrease, which was primarily driven by passing through lower raw material costs associated with index-based selling agreements, impacted North America, South America and Europe.  In addition, lower sales prices associated with lower raw material costs were partially offset by positive contributions from product mix movements and other underlying price increases.  Combined, these factors had a $38.7 million impact on net sales.  Results in Asia were impacted by a higher proportion of sales in the hygiene markets compared with the healthcare markets, which have higher average selling prices.  Other factors that contributed to the $2.7 million decrease included increased activity in the spot markets and a competitive pricing environment.

Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $210.9 million, a $49.9 million increase compared with the six months ended June 28, 2014.  The primary driver of the increase related to the contributions from Providência, which represented an incremental $30.3 million for the period.  The acquisition of Dounor provided an additional $2.9 million since its acquisition date.  In addition, improved spreads as a result of favorable raw material trends during the period provided year-over-year improvements in North American and South America.  Another factor that contributed to the increase in gross profit was a reduction in the overhead component of cost of goods sold.  Primary drivers include the benefits of cost reduction initiatives implemented during the prior year, including the benefits from acquisition integration initiatives, as well as manufacturing efficiencies.  These amounts were partially offset by the consolidation of manufacturing facilities in Germany in connection with the exit of the European roofing business during 2014 and unfavorable product mix movements.  As a result, gross profit as a percentage of net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2015 increased to 23.0% from 18.7% for the six months ended June 28, 2014.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were $131.2 million, an $11.5 million increase compared with the six months ended June 28, 2014.  The increase was primarily related to the inclusion of Providência, which added an incremental $10.3 million of costs for the period.  In addition, the inclusion of Dounor since their acquisition date which added an additional $2.0 million for the period.  Other selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $0.8 million compared to the prior year.  Factors that contributed to the decrease included lower costs for freight, a result of exiting the European roofing business during 2014 and an increase in local sales in South America.  In addition, we realized lower sales and marketing expenses primarily as a result of the integration of Fiberweb.  These costs were partially offset by higher employee-related expenses as well as increased Blackstone-related management fees and costs related to third-party fees and expenses.  As a result, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased to 14.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2015 from 13.9% for the six months ended June 28, 2014.

Special charges totaled $12.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and included $6.2 million related to professional fees and other transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Providência and Dounor as well as Fiberweb integration costs.  In addition, we incurred $2.0 million costs related to the relocation of the manufacturing facility in China and $3.3 million of restructuring and plant realignment costs.  Special charges totaled $33.0 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014, of which $22.4 million were acquisition and integration related. Restructuring and plant realignment costs were $10.0 million.

Operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $68.4 million compared with operating income of $3.5 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014.  The overall increase in operating income was primarily driven by increased profit contribution from acquired businesses, productivity improvements and the benefits from favorable raw material trends on spreads.

Interest expense for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $54.6 million compared with $38.8 million for the prior year period.  The increase is driven by the higher debt balances incurred to finance acquisitions and repay a portion of the existing indebtedness.  Foreign currency and other, net was an expense of $40.7 million during the period.  The main driver of the expense related to foreign currency losses on non-operating assets and liabilities, primarily intercompany loans, impacting South America and Europe as the U.S. dollar strengthened during the period.

As a result of the above, the Company reported a net loss attributable to AVINTIV of $48.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared with a net loss of $29.1 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $147.7 million compared with $103.9 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined and reconciled to net income attributable to AVINTIV below.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We believe that the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA is Net income (loss) attributable to AVINTIV Specialty Materials Inc.  The following tables reconcile Net income (loss) attributable to AVINTIV Specialty Materials Inc. to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented:

Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) is used in this release as a "non-GAAP financial measure," which is a measure of the Company's financial performance that is different from measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP within the meaning of applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules.  A non-GAAP financial measure, such as EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA, should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance such as (1) net income determined in accordance with GAAP or (2) operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP.  The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

As defined in the Company's indentures and credit agreements, Adjusted EBITDA is generally calculated as net income (loss) before interest expense, income and franchise taxes and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude and certain other items permitted in calculating covenant compliance under the indentures governing the Senior Secured Notes and the Senior Notes and the credit agreements governing the Term Loans and in our ABL Facility.  With certain exceptions, it is also generally consistent with the metric used by management as a performance measurement for certain performance-based incentive compensation plans.  In addition, the Company considers Adjusted EBITDA an important supplemental measure of its performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry.
