(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110215/CG49203LOGO)

Second Quarter 2013 Highlights Included:

  • Gross Profit margin improved 170 basis points versus the prior year's adjusted result1 and 40 basis points relative to the prior quarter;
  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense down 4 percent versus the prior quarter;
  • EBITDA margin up over 100 basis points versus prior year's adjusted result1, EIMEA EBITDA margin over 10 percent for the first time since 2009;
  • Regional operating income2 increased 13 percent and 130 basis points versus last year's adjusted result1;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.671 up 8 percent versus last year;
  • Acquisition of Plexbond in Brazil announced.

Second Quarter 2013 Results: Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $25.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, versus net income from continuing operations of $5.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in last year's second quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2013 were $0.671, up 8 percent from the prior year's adjusted result of $0.621

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $519.0 million, down 1.5 percent versus the second quarter of 2012. Higher average selling prices positively impacted net revenue growth by 0.2 percentage points. Foreign currency translation and lower volume reduced net revenue growth by 0.3 and 1.4 percentage points, respectively. Organic revenue declined by 1.2 percent year-over-year.  Volume was slightly higher relative to last year in each geographic region except the EIMEA region where volume was down about 5 percent.

"We are satisfied with the overall results we delivered this quarter," said Jim Owens, H.B. Fuller president and chief executive officer. "While we did not deliver the organic growth we expected in the quarter, we managed our margins well, took another step toward completion of the business integration plan and reduced discretionary spending to deliver on our commitments. We have initiatives in the pipeline which will generate improved revenue results in the second half. We remain on track to deliver the Forbo synergies, our business integration project in Europe, our EPS commitments for the year and our strategic target of 15 percent EBITDA margin in 2015."

Gross profit margin was up approximately 170 basis points compared to the prior year's adjusted result1 reflecting solid operational improvement as a result of the ongoing business integration project. Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense was down versus the prior quarter and relatively flat versus last year's second quarter result.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow: At the end of the second quarter of 2013, the Company had cash totaling $161 million and total debt of $496 million. This compares to first quarter 2013 levels of $163 million and $511 million, respectively. Sequentially, net debt was down by approximately $13 million. Capital expenditures were $28 million in the second quarter, with the bulk of this spending related to the Company's ongoing business integration activities. Operating cash flow in the second quarter was $52 million.

Year-To-Date: Net income for the first half of 2013 was $46.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, versus net income from continuing operations of $18.7 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in the first half of 2012. Adjusted total diluted earnings per share in the first half of 2013 were $1.161, up 13 percent from the prior year's first half adjusted result of $1.031.

Net revenue for the first half of 2013 was $998.9 million, up 14.5 percent versus the first half of 2012. Higher average selling prices and acquisitions positively impacted net revenue growth by 0.5 and 14.0 percentage points, respectively. Volume and foreign currency translation had no impact to net revenue growth. Organic revenue increased by 0.5 percent year-over-year.

Business Integration and Special Charges The Company has implemented a comprehensive business integration program to deliver synergies related to the acquisition of the Forbo adhesives business and to improve the performance of the EIMEA operating segment. The table below provides an estimate of the expected one-time costs of executing this multi-year project.  In addition, the table lists, for each cost element, the costs incurred in the current quarter, for the fiscal year to date and since the project's inception in the fourth quarter of 2011:

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements: Certain statements in this document may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to the following: the Company's ability to effectively integrate and operate acquired businesses; political and economic conditions; product demand; competitive products and pricing; costs of and savings from restructuring initiatives; geographic and product mix; availability and price of raw materials; the Company's relationships with its major customers and suppliers; changes in tax laws and tariffs; devaluations and other foreign exchange rate fluctuations; the impact of litigation and environmental matters; the effect of new accounting pronouncements and accounting charges and credits; and similar matters.

1

Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations is a non-GAAP financial measure. First and second quarters of 2013 and 2012 exclude special charges associated with two previously announced events: the EIMEA business transformation project and the expenses associated with the Forbo acquisition integration project, which have been combined and are now referred to as the "business integration". Special charges, net amounted to $10.8 million, $5.3 million, $32.1 million and $6.5 million on a pre-tax basis ($0.16, $0.08, $0.52 and $0.14 per diluted share) in Q2 2013, Q1 2013, Q2 2012 and Q1 2012, respectively. During the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a one-time negative impact of the fair value step-up on the inventory acquired with the Forbo business on the gross profit margin line of the income statement. On a pre-tax basis, this "step-up" amounted to $3.3 million dollars ($0.05 per diluted share).

2

Regional operating income is defined as gross profit less SG&A expense.  Items that are reported on the special charges line of the income statement are excluded from the regional operating income calculation. In Q2 2013, Q1 2013, Q2 2012 and Q1 2012, special charges, net totaled $10.8 million, $5.3 million, $32.1 million and $6.5 million, respectively.

3 

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined on a consolidated basis as gross profit, less SG&A expense, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. On a regional basis it is defined as operating income, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. EBITDA margin is defined as EBITDA divided by net revenue.

Regional operating margin is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as gross profit, less SG&A expense, divided by net revenue.
