Higher margins and productivity gains offset market headwinds

24 Feb, 2016, 06:00 ET from Univar

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016  /PRNewswire/ --

Full Year 2015 Highlights (Versus 2014)

  • Adjusted EBITDA declined 6.5 percent from $641.7 million to $600.1 million, but was essentially flat on a currency neutral basis as the benefit of productivity gains and higher margins largely offset lower demand in upstream oil and gas markets.
  • Net income of $16.5 million was up from a net loss of $20.1 million.
  • Net sales decreased 13.4 percent from $10,374 million to $8,982 million, primarily reflecting a 6.3-percent decrease from foreign currency translation and a 7-percent decline in volumes.
  • Net cash provided from operating activities increased from $126.3 million to $356.0 million due to lower net working capital and interest payments, as well as productivity improvements. Adjusted Operating Cash Flow increased from $386.4 million to $632.0 million.
  • Gross margin increased 140 basis points to 20 percent driven by focused margin management and product mix improvements. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 50 basis points to 6.7 percent.
  • Completed several bolt-on acquisitions, including four in the fourth quarter, which provide future growth opportunities in specialty products and services.

Univar Inc. (NYSE: UNVR) ("Univar"), a global chemical distributor and provider of value-added services, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.

"Strong earnings growth outside of the upstream U.S. oil and gas market, combined with higher margins and strong cash flow, demonstrate our ability to execute well against our strategic priorities in a sluggish macroeconomic environment," said Erik Fyrwald, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Lower demand in upstream oil and gas, however, offset our achievements. For the year, we delivered Adjusted EBITDA on a currency neutral basis essentially flat with the prior year."

For the full year, gross margin percentage increased by 140 basis points through year-over-year growth in higher-margin products and services, as well as pricing and product mix improvements. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 50 basis points to 6.7 percent.  The company also generated $632.0 million in Adjusted Operating Cash Flow, up $245.6 million, or 64 percent, from lower working capital.

In 2015, Univar:  

  • Reported its safest year on record with a global Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) of less than 1.0.
  • Reduced total debt by retiring $650 million of Senior Subordinated Notes and reduced pro forma annual cash interest expense by almost $100 million using proceeds from its June IPO and subsequent debt refinancing.
  • Completed the restructuring of its European supply chain operations, which helped increase Adjusted EBITDA margins for the EMEA segment by 180 basis points while improving focus on growth in targeted markets. 
  • Achieved year-over-year growth in personal care, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, agriculture, and food ingredients.
  • Completed several productivity projects in the USA segment that lowered its overall cost structure, including phased cost reductions in its upstream oil and gas business.

"We are also driving productivity by streamlining our organization and rightsizing our upstream oil and gas assets" said Fyrwald. "We believe that these actions, in addition to others already taken across our organization, give us a cost structure that is aligned to the challenging economic realities of today's market, without impacting our ability to grow and effectively deliver service to our customers and suppliers. We enter 2016 with a significantly lower exposure to the upstream oil and gas market, and will continue to execute our strategy to grow the value of Univar through organic growth in attractive markets, bolt-on acquisitions, and productivity improvement."

Fourth Quarter 2015 Performance

The results of the Company's operating performance are described below and are a comparison of 2015 fourth-quarter results with 2014 fourth-quarter results, including Adjusted EBITDA, which is reconciled to reported net income in the accompanying supplemental financial information.

In the fourth quarter, Adjusted EBITDA of $129.6 million declined 13.1 percent from $149.1 million, primarily due to reduced upstream oil and gas demand and continued foreign currency translation impact of the stronger U.S. dollar. On a currency neutral basis, Adjusted EBITDA was $137.5 million.

Segment Highlights

USA – Net sales decreased 19.3 percent from $1,490.4 million to $1,202.7 million, primarily due to lower demand from the upstream oil and gas market, and lower selling prices for several basic chemical products related to lower oil prices. Gross profit decreased $32.6 million, or 11.5 percent, to $251.6 million. Gross margin increased 180 basis points to 20.9 percent, due to focused margin management activities, product mix improvements, and the successful implementation of productivity initiatives. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 21.6 percent from $105.5 million to $82.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased 20 basis points to 6.9 percent primarily due to declining revenues outpacing the impact of cost reduction actions taken in the quarter.

Canada – Net sales decreased 2.7 percent from $265.2 million to $258.1 million. On a currency neutral basis, sales increased 15.3 percent on higher volumes in chemical manufacturing and mining markets, and increased sales to the agriculture market due to optimal seasonal growing conditions. Gross profit decreased 7.7 percent from $59.6 million to $55.0 million, but on a currency neutral basis increased 8.6 percent. Gross margin decreased 120 basis points to 21.3 percent primarily due to product mix.  Adjusted EBITDA decreased 6.2 percent from $24.1 million to $22.6 million, but on a currency neutral basis increased 10.4 percent. Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased 30 basis points to 8.8 percent, primarily due to product mix. 

EMEA – Net sales decreased 17.5 percent from $488.9 million to $403.1 million. On a currency neutral basis, sales decreased 7.2 percent, primarily due to the exit of certain low-margin business, and the decline in sales of certain basic chemicals due to regional market conditions. Gross profit decreased 5.8 percent from $98.2 million to $92.5 million, but on a currency neutral basis increased 6.1 percent. Gross margin increased 280 basis points to 22.9 percent due to product mix improvements. Adjusted EBITDA increased 42.9 percent from $17.0 million to $24.3 million and on a currency neutral basis increased 55.9 percent. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 250 basis points to 6.0 percent, due to higher gross margin. 

Rest of World – Net sales decreased 28.2 percent from $142.7 million to $102.4 million, reflecting a 19.3-percent decrease from foreign currency translation and a 12.3-percent decline in volumes primarily driven by lower sales in Asia Pacific. Gross profit decreased 8.8 percent from $22.7 million to $20.7 million but on a currency neutral basis increased 19.8 percent. Gross margin increased 430 basis points to 20.2 percent. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 14.6 percent, from $4.8 million to $4.1 million but on a currency neutral basis increased 22.9 percent. Gross profit, gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA all benefited from the favorable year-over-year impact of the November 2014 D'Altomare acquisition.

Outlook

In 2016, the company expects slowing global demand for basic and specialty chemicals across several end markets it serves. The company intends to continue to invest in targeted growth initiatives and in acquisitions while executing sustainable cost reduction programs.  On a reported basis, the company expects to generate Adjusted EBITDA modestly below the $600.1 million earned in 2015. This result anticipates lower chemical prices for certain products and ongoing pressures from foreign currency translation, as well as continued headwinds in upstream oil and gas, particularly in the first half of the year. These will be partially offset by the benefit of organic growth initiatives, acquisitions, and lower costs.

For the first quarter of 2016, the company expects Adjusted EBITDA on a reported basis to be about 10 percent below the $129.6 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2015.

"Our performance in 2015 reflects well on the broad diversity of our asset-light business model that helps provide stability, less cyclicality, and strong cash flow even in the face of significant headwinds," said Fyrwald. "Although we expect there will be ongoing uncertainty in the market, our model is working, and we have a solid strategy and team to execute in both good and challenging macroeconomic environments."

Univar to Host Webcast on February 24 at 8 a.m. EST

The Company will host a webcast with investors to discuss the fourth-quarter and 2015 year-end results at 8 a.m. EST on February 24, which can be accessed on the Investor Relations section of its website at http://investor.univar.com. Following the event, an archived version of the webcast and supporting materials will be available on the same website.

Adjusted EBITDA

The Company monitors the results of its operating segments separately for the purposes of making decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment.  The Company evaluates performance on the basis of Adjusted EBITDA, which it defines as its consolidated net income (loss), plus the sum of interest expense, net of interest income, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, amortization, other operating expenses, net (which primarily consists of pension mark to market adjustments, acquisition and integration related expenses, employee stock-based compensation expense, redundancy and restructuring costs, advisory fees paid to stockholders, and other unusual or non-recurring expenses), impairment charges, loss on extinguishment of debt and other income (expense), net (which consists of gains and losses on foreign currency transactions and undesignated derivative instruments, ineffective portion of cash flow hedges, debt refinancing costs, and other non-operating activity). The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an important indicator of operating performance because:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the effects of income taxes, as well as the effects of financing and investing activities by eliminating the effects of interest, depreciation and amortization expenses;
  • the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in setting performance incentive targets;
  • the Company considers gains (losses) on the acquisition, disposal and impairment of assets as resulting from investing decisions rather than ongoing operations; and
  • other significant items, while periodically affecting the Company's results, may vary significantly from period to period and have a disproportionate effect in a given period, which affects comparability of its results.

Adjusted Operating Cash Flow

The Company assesses its ability to generate cash flows available for investing and financing activities by measuring Adjusted Operating Cash Flow, which is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less cash flows from changes in accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable, and cash used to purchase property, plant and equipment.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's management believes that certain financial measures that do not comply with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") provide relevant and meaningful information concerning the ongoing operating results of the Company.  Such non-GAAP financial measures are used from time to time herein but should not be viewed as a substitute for GAAP measures of performance. Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to GAAP are provided in Schedules A, B, and C.
