In the news release, Avantor Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results, issued 05-Nov-2019 by Avantor and Financial News over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that the first paragraph, first sentence of the Full-Year 2019 Outlook section should read “The Company expects net sales in the range of $6.02-6.08 billion, representing growth of 2.7-3.7%, or 5.0%-6.0% on an organic basis.” rather than “The Company expects net sales in the range of $6.02-6.08 million, representing growth of 2.7-3.7%, or 5.0%-6.0% on an organic basis.” as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

RADNOR, Pa., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Avantor, Inc. (NYSE: AVTR), a leading global provider of mission critical products and services to customers in the life sciences and advanced technologies & applied materials industries, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“We are pleased to report another quarter of good growth, strong cash generation and deleveraging,” said Michael Stubblefield, Chief Executive Officer of Avantor. “While a one-time item in the prior-year quarter diluted top line growth by approximately 2%, we achieved mid-single-digit growth in our core business, which continues to reflect the strength of our model. Importantly, biopharma growth in the quarter was strong and overall we exited September with high-single-digit growth.”

“Our operating performance continues to benefit from the efficiencies and synergies from the VWR integration, and we remain on track to expand margins approximately 100 basis points in 2019. Additionally, our outstanding cash generation and continued reduction in our interest expense enabled us to lower our leverage another quarter turn to 4.8X,” said Stubblefield.

“We have momentum to finish the year strong and are well positioned to enable the innovation and breakthroughs that help our life science customers dramatically improve patient outcomes,” Stubblefield concluded.

Third Quarter 2019

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, net sales were $1.504 billion, an increase of 0.6% compared to the third quarter of 2018. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted revenue by 1.8%, and organic revenue growth was 2.4%, reflecting volume growth and improved pricing, offset by discrete, non-recurring volume in the Americas in 2018, which adversely affected global growth in the quarter by approximately 200 basis points.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased 1.6% to $250.8 million but was flat excluding adverse foreign exchange translation impact. Product pricing relative to cost inflation was favorable, and our productivity and VWR integration synergies continued to deliver. These benefits were offset by adverse sales mix and additional growth investments.

Third Quarter 2019 - Segment Results

Management uses Management EBITDA (as highlighted below) to measure and evaluate the internal operating performance of the Company’s business segments. Management EBITDA is also our segment reporting profitability measure under generally accepted accounting principles.

Americas

In the Americas, net sales were $918.2 million, up 0.6% from the third quarter of 2018 and up 0.7% on an organic basis, reflecting improved pricing that was partially offset by a one-time item in the prior year, absent which the organic growth in the Americas would have approximated 4%. Sales to biopharma, our largest customer group, grew in the mid-single digits organically, with biopharma production sales up low-double digits.

Management EBITDA was $187.7 million, up 3.2% from the third quarter of 2018, which reflected modest sales growth and stable gross margin. Strong growth in biopharma and SG&A savings, driven primarily by synergies generated from our global restructuring program, was tempered by lower levels of higher-margin healthcare and education & government product sales.

Europe

In Europe, net sales declined slightly to $501.1 million, -0.4% versus the third quarter of 2018, but increased 4.5% on an organic basis due in equal parts to price increases and volume growth. We experienced growth across all of our customer end markets, including high-single-digit growth in biopharma, driven by broad-based strength across strategic customer accounts and new customer wins. Growth was moderated by a low-single-digit decline in capital-related purchases of equipment and instruments.

Management EBITDA was $85.1 million, flat versus the third quarter of 2018. Performance was driven by SG&A savings and favorable product mix due to strong sales of proprietary healthcare materials and contraction in sales of lower-margin equipment & instrumentation. These benefits were substantially offset by unfavorable foreign currency transaction and translation impact.

AMEA

In AMEA, net sales increased 8.1% and were up 8.2% on an organic basis to $84.5 million, driven by volume growth in the biopharma and advanced technologies & applied materials businesses, our two largest end markets in this geographic region. We exited the quarter with over 30% growth for the month of September.

Management EBITDA of $16.9 million, down 10.6%, was favorably impacted by an increase in gross profit, driven by sales growth. However, this improvement was more than offset by a higher investment in customer-facing sales and marketing functions to support the growth in this strategic region and the opening of new supply chain facilities to better serve our customers.

Full-Year 2019 Outlook

The Company expects net sales in the range of $6.02-6.08 billion, representing growth of 2.7-3.7%, or 5.0%-6.0% on an organic basis. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $1.025-1.035 billion, or an increase of 8.4-9.4%. Guidance for full-year Adjusted EPS is $0.55-0.58, up 52%-60%.

Our outlook assumes:

A quantitative reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS outlook to the corresponding GAAP information is not provided because the GAAP measures that are excluded from such outlook are difficult to predict and are primarily dependent on future uncertainties. Items with future uncertainties include the timing and cost of future restructuring activities, charges related to the early retirement of debt, changes in tax rates and other non-recurring items.

Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures

To evaluate our performance, we monitor a number of key indicators. As appropriate, we supplement our results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) with certain non-GAAP financial measurements that we believe are useful to investors, creditors and others in assessing our performance. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported GAAP results because they may include or exclude certain items as compared to similar GAAP-based measures, and such measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies. Rather, these measures should be considered as an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that provide a more complete understanding of our business. We strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements included in reports filed with the SEC in their entirety and not rely solely on any one, single financial measurement or communication.

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are organic sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, pro forma Adjusted EPS, net leverage and unlevered free cash flow.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables accompanying this release.

Forward-Looking and Cautionary Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this press release, including our full-year 2019 outlook, are forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions; they are not guarantees of performance. You should not place undue reliance on these statements. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events. Although we believe that our assumptions made in connection with the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot assure you that the assumptions and expectations will prove to be correct. Factors that could contribute to these risks, uncertainties and assumptions include, but are not limited to, the factors described in “Risk Factors” in our Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-229578) and our Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2019, as such risk factors may be updated from time to time in our periodic filings with the SEC.

In addition, all forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release.
