TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2021 / Industries Inc. (“the Company”) (TSX:CCL.A, TSX:CCL.B), a world leader in specialty label, security and packaging solutions for global corporations, government institutions, small businesses and consumers, today reported 2021 third quarter results.

Sales for the third quarter of 2021 increased 8.4% to $1,488.2 million compared to $1,373.4 million for the third quarter of 2020, with organic growth of 10.3% and acquisition-related growth of 2.2%, partially offset by 4.1% negative impact from foreign currency translation.

Operating income(1) for the third quarter of 2021 declined 9.1% to $223.9 million compared to $246.3 million for the comparable quarter of 2020. Operating income(1) declined 5.0%, excluding currency translation.

The Company recorded expenses for restructuring and other items of $0.7 million and $16.2 million for the 2021 and 2020 third quarters. Expenses for the 2021 third quarter are principally restructuring costs in the CCL Segment while the 2020 third quarter included an expense of $9.4 million to conclude a long running litigation matter at CCL Secure in Australia with the balance for severance and acquisition transaction costs.

Tax expense for the third quarter of 2021 was $47.8 million compared to $50.6 million in the prior year period. The effective tax rate for the 2021 third quarter was 24.1%, lower than the 25.1% for the 2020 third quarter due to previously unrecognized tax losses used to offset taxable income in jurisdictions that were historically incurring start-up losses.

Net earnings were $153.3 million for the 2021 and the 2020 third quarter. Basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3)were $0.85 for the 2021 third quarter, compared to basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3)of $0.86 and $0.93, respectively, in the prior year third quarter.

Geoffrey T. Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am pleased to report strong third quarter results, significantly ahead of the same period in 2019, but as expected below the record 2020 third quarter, which included high margin, windfall banknote substrate orders for CCL Secure. Third quarter 2021 adjusted basic earnings per Class B share of $0.85 compares to $0.93 and $0.72 for the corresponding quarters of 2020 and 2019 respectively. Currency translation reduced adjusted earnings this quarter by $0.04 on a weaker U.S. dollar and euro.”

Mr. Martin continued, “Excluding the heavy comparative decline at CCL Secure, the rest of the CCL Segment delivered good 6.1% organic sales growth. Solid Home & Personal Care results across label, tube and container categories in the Americas were more than offset by pandemic related challenges and a difficult pricing environment in Asia. Sales growth at CCL Design, driven by extensive gains in electronics markets, could not offset higher operating costs and the semiconductor crisis severely affecting demand across the automotive industry. Healthcare & Specialty sales increased modestly, although profits declined slightly compared to a mix-driven, pandemic related tailwind in the prior year period. Food & Beverage results improved as “on premise” demand normalized in many markets. Our label joint ventures in the Middle East & Russia posted solid earnings. CCL Secure, although modestly profitable, posted results far below the exceptional prior year quarter. Record quarterly performance at Avery partly compensated, driven by broad based demand recovery; despite inflationary pressures and back-to-school related supply chain challenges, especially for China sourced components. Checkpoint delivered double-digit organic sales growth but normalized operating costs combined with freight and materials inflation, reduced profit margins compared to the strong recovery period in 2020. Innovia volume increased in lively markets, although much of the sales gain derived from dramatically higher resin costs largely passed through to customers. Substantial energy and freight inflation were only slightly more than offset by productivity and volume, resulting in modest profitability gains.”

Mr. Martin added, “Inflationary pressures progressively developed across the Company in 2021 and are expected to continue well into 2022. Offsetting productivity and product re-engineering initiatives and, where appropriate, sales price increases are all front of mind for the coming quarters. Foreign currency translation reduced earnings $0.11 per share for the first nine months of this year, largely driven by the significantly lower U.S. dollar. At today’s Canadian dollar exchange rates, currency translation would remain a headwind for the balance of 2021, if sustained. Matching fourth quarter 2020 earnings for the coming period will be challenging, but nonetheless the Company looks well set for another record year.”

Mr. Martin concluded, “The Company finished the quarter with a strong balance sheet and robust liquidity. The Company’s consolidated leverage ratio(5) declined to 1.06 times Adjusted EBITDA(2) with $622.5 million of cash-on-hand and US$1.2 billion undrawn capacity on its syndicated revolving credit facility, leaving us well placed to fund global expansion initiatives. The Board of Directors declared the quarterly dividend at $0.21 per Class B non-voting share and $0.2075 per Class A voting share, payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 15, 2021, to be paid on December 29, 2021.”

Non-IFRS Measures

(1) Operating income and operating income margin are key non-IFRS financial measures used to assist in understanding the profitability of the Company’s business units. Operating income is defined as earnings before corporate expenses, net finance cost, goodwill impairment loss, earnings in equity accounted investments, restructuring and other items, and taxes. Operating income margin, also known as return on sales, is defined as operating income over sales.

(2) Adjusted EBITDA is a critical non-IFRS financial measure used extensively in the packaging industry and other industries to assist in understanding and measuring operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is also considered as a proxy for cash flow and a facilitator for business valuations. This non-IFRS financial measure is defined as earnings before net finance cost, taxes, depreciation and amortization, goodwill impairment loss, non-cash acquisition accounting adjustments to inventory, earnings in equity accounted investments and restructuring and other items. Calculations are provided below to reconcile operating income to Adjusted EBITDA. The Company believes that this is an important measure as it allows management to assess the ongoing business without the impact of net finance cost, depreciation and amortization and income tax expenses, as well as non-operating factors and one-time items. As a proxy for cash flow, it is intended to indicate the Company’s ability to incur or service debt and to invest in property, plant and equipment, and it allows management to compare the business to those of the Company’s peers and competitors who may have different capital or organizational structures. Adjusted EBITDA is tracked by financial analysts and investors to evaluate financial performance and is a key metric in business valuations. It is considered an important measure by lenders to the Company and is included in the financial covenants included in the senior notes and bank lines of credit.

(3) Adjusted basic earnings per Class B share is an important non-IFRS measure to assist in understanding the ongoing earnings performance of the Company excluding items of a one-time or non-recurring nature. It is not considered a substitute for basic net earnings per Class B share but it does provide additional insight into the ongoing financial results of the Company. This non-IFRS financial measure is defined as basic net earnings per Class B share excluding gains on business dispositions, goodwill impairment loss, non-cash acquisition accounting adjustments to inventory, restructuring and other items, and tax adjustments.

(4) Free Cash Flow from Operations - A measure indicating the relative amount of cash generated by the Company during the year and available to fund dividends, debt repayments and acquisitions. It is calculated as cash flow from operations less capital expenditures, net of proceeds from the sale of property, plant and equipment.
