Oct 24, 2012, 06:05 ET from PolyOne Corporation

CLEVELAND, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

  • Earnings per share of $0.27; earnings per share as adjusted of $0.33, a third quarter record and a 27% year-over-year increase
  • Expanded operating margins and operating profits in all business platforms
  • Mix improvement strategy drives margin expansion
  • Accelerating conference call to discuss third quarter earnings to 9:00 a.m. EDT Wednesday, October 24, which will also include discussion on the recently announced Spartech Corporation acquisition

PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL) today reported $740.2 million of revenues for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $735.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. 

Diluted earnings per share totaled $0.27 in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $0.23 in the third quarter of 2011. Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 27% to $0.33 for the third quarter of 2012, compared to $0.26 in the third quarter last year.

"I am very pleased with our record third quarter results, which marks PolyOne's twelfth consecutive quarter of year-over-year double-digit adjusted earnings per share growth.  Over the past three years, PolyOne has grown adjusted EPS more than twice the CAGR of the S&P 500," said Stephen D. Newlin, chairman, president and chief executive officer.  "We delivered record third quarter adjusted earnings per share, driven by our ongoing and successful mix improvement strategy." 

Commenting on the quarter, Mr. Newlin said, "This was an outstanding quarter on many dimensions, including earnings growth and organic operating margin expansion due to mix improvement, with all platforms contributing to this success.  On-time delivery to our customers reached an all-time record level of 96%, as measured to their original requested date, while we successfully maintained world-class working capital levels.  Innovation was a significant driver of mix improvement, as evidenced by record levels of our Specialty platform sales generated from products introduced in the past five years."

"We ended the quarter with $249 million of cash as a result of excellent working capital management.  This, coupled with $179 million of availability under our asset-based revolver, leaves us with ample liquidity to fund future growth initiatives and provide returns to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks," added Richard J. Diemer, Jr., senior vice president and chief financial officer. 

Commenting on the company's outlook, Mr. Newlin said, "We are encouraged that the impact of the weaker European economy appears to be stabilizing, albeit at lower levels.  Through the disciplined execution of our four pillar strategy, we expect to deliver double-digit adjusted earnings per share growth in the fourth quarter of 2012 over last year."   

The company recorded special items of $8.3 million ($5.3 million after tax; $0.06 per share) in the third quarter of 2012, the most significant of which related to environmental remediation.  Special items of $4.8 million ($3.1 million after tax; $0.03 per share) in the third quarter of 2011 also related primarily to environmental remediation costs. 

The company's performance for the third quarter will be discussed on a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time Wednesday, October 24. The call can be accessed by dialing 866-356-3377 (International: 617-597-5392) and entering Passcode 27155297, or via webcast at www.polyone.com/investor.

Attachment 7

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited) (In millions, except per share data)

 

Senior management uses gross margin before special items and operating income before special items to assess performance and allocate resources because senior management believes that these measures are useful in understanding current profitability levels and that current levels may serve as a base for future performance. In addition, operating income before the effect of special items is a component of various PolyOne annual and long-term employee incentive plans and is used in debt covenant computations. Below is a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. See Attachment 2 for a definition of special items.
