    • Adjusted EPS (non-GAAP) of $0.91
  • 2Q15 Net sales declined approximately 6 percent to $1.52 billion
    • Net sales up approximately 4 percent on organic basis
  • Repurchased 1.1 million shares for $62 million and paid $66 million in dividends in the first half of 2015
  • Updated FY15 Reported EPS guidance to $2.82 to $3.02, reflecting loss on sale and exit costs associated with a product line divestiture in 2Q
    • No change to full year guidance for adjusted EPS growth of 5 to 11 percent

GLENDALE, Calif.--()--Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE:AVY) today announced preliminary, unaudited results for its second quarter ended July 4, 2015. All non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this document are reconciled to GAAP in the attached tables. Unless otherwise indicated, the discussion of the company’s results is focused on its continuing operations, and comparisons are to the same period in the prior year.

“I’m pleased to report another solid quarter of progress against our long-term strategic and financial objectives,” said Dean Scarborough, Avery Dennison chairman and CEO. "Sales were up 4 percent on an organic basis, as exceptional performance in Pressure-sensitive Materials offset a decline in Retail Branding and Information Solutions. Despite the headwind from currency translation, we delivered mid-teens growth in adjusted earnings per share, continued to expand adjusted operating margin, and generated significantly higher cash flow compared to last year.

“Pressure-sensitive Materials delivered great results through the consistent execution of our strategy, leveraging our scale and strengths in innovation, quality, and service across the entire portfolio,” Scarborough added. “Results in Retail Branding and Information Solutions were disappointing. Actions are underway to build a better foundation for long-term profitable growth and value creation in all segments of this business.”

“Overall, I remain confident that the consistent execution of our strategies, including the turnaround in RBIS, will enable us to meet our long-term goals."

For more details on the company’s results, see the summary table accompanying this news release, as well as the supplemental presentation materials, “Second Quarter 2015 Financial Review and Analysis,” posted on the company’s website at www.investors.averydennison.com, and furnished to the SEC on Form 8-K.

Second Quarter 2015 Results by Segment

All references to sales reflect comparisons on an organic basis, which exclude the estimated impact of currency translation, product line exits, acquisitions and divestitures, and, where applicable, the extra week in the prior fiscal year. Adjusted operating margin refers to income before interest expense and taxes, excluding restructuring costs and other items, as a percentage of sales.

Pressure-sensitive Materials (PSM)

  • PSM sales increased approximately 6 percent. Within the segment, sales of both Label and Packaging Materials and combined Graphics and Performance Tapes increased mid-single digits.
  • Operating margin improved 440 basis points to 11.7 percent as the impact of lower restructuring costs, productivity initiatives, higher volume, and the net benefit from price and raw material input costs more than offset higher employee-related costs. Adjusted operating margin improved 220 basis points.

Retail Branding and Information Solutions (RBIS)

  • RBIS sales were down approximately 2 percent.
  • Operating margin declined 420 basis points to 2.6 percent as the impact of higher restructuring charges, costs associated with a product line divestiture, lower sales, and higher employee-related costs was partially offset by the benefit of productivity initiatives. Adjusted operating margin declined 40 basis points.

Other

Share Repurchases

The company repurchased 0.5 million shares in the second quarter of 2015 at an aggregate cost of $28 million.

Income Taxes

The second quarter effective tax rate was 36 percent. The adjusted tax rate for the second quarter was 34 percent, consistent with the anticipated full year tax rate in the low to mid-thirty percent range.

Cost Reduction Actions and Product Line Divestiture

In the second quarter, the company realized approximately $18 million in savings from restructuring, net of transition costs, and incurred restructuring charges of approximately $20 million, most of which represent cash costs.

The company completed the sale of its Europe-based industrial printer product line that resulted in a pre-tax loss which, when combined with related exit costs, totaled approximately $8 million in the second quarter. Full year sales for the business in 2014 were approximately $70 million, with a negligible contribution to operating income.

Outlook

In its supplemental presentation materials, “Second Quarter 2015 Financial Review and Analysis,” the company provides a list of factors that it believes will contribute to its 2015 financial results. Based on the factors listed and other assumptions, the company has reduced its previous guidance for 2015 earnings per share by $0.03 to $2.82 to $3.02, reflecting the loss on sale of a product line and related exit costs in the second quarter. Excluding an estimated $0.43 per share for restructuring costs and other items, the company continues to expect adjusted (non-GAAP) earnings per share of $3.25 to $3.45.

Note: Throughout this release and the supplemental presentation materials, amounts on a per share basis reflect fully diluted shares outstanding.

These forward-looking statements, and financial or other business targets, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties. Actual results and trends may differ materially from historical or anticipated results depending on a variety of factors, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties relating to the following: fluctuations in demand affecting sales to customers; worldwide and local economic conditions; fluctuations in currency exchange rates and other risks associated with foreign operations, including in emerging markets; the financial condition and inventory strategies of customers; changes in customer preferences; fluctuations in cost and availability of raw materials; our ability to generate sustained productivity improvement; our ability to achieve and sustain targeted cost reductions; the impact of competitive products and pricing; loss of significant contracts or customers; collection of receivables from customers; selling prices; business mix shift; timely development and market acceptance of new products, including sustainable or sustainably-sourced products; investment in development activities and new production facilities; integration of acquisitions and completion of potential dispositions; amounts of future dividends and share repurchases; customer and supplier concentrations; successful implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment; disruptions in information technology systems, including cyber-attacks or other intrusions to network security; successful installation of new or upgraded information technology systems; data security breaches; volatility of financial markets; impairment of capitalized assets, including goodwill and other intangibles; credit risks; our ability to obtain adequate financing arrangements and maintain access to capital; fluctuations in interest and tax rates; changes in tax laws and regulations, and uncertainties associated with interpretations of such laws and regulations; outcome of tax audits; fluctuations in pension, insurance, and employee benefit costs; the impact of legal and regulatory proceedings, including with respect to environmental, health and safety; changes in governmental laws and regulations; protection and infringement of intellectual property; changes in political conditions; the impact of epidemiological events on the economy and our customers and suppliers; acts of war, terrorism, and natural disasters; and other factors.

We believe that the most significant risk factors that could affect our financial performance in the near-term include: (1) the impacts of economic conditions on underlying demand for our products and foreign currency fluctuations; (2) competitors' actions, including pricing, expansion in key markets, and product offerings; and (3) the degree to which higher costs can be offset with productivity measures and/or passed on to customers through selling price increases, without a significant loss of volume.

For a more detailed discussion of these and other factors, see “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition” in our 2014 Form 10-K, filed on February 25, 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in Accordance with SEC Regulations G and S-K
 
We report financial results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, and also communicate with investors using certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for or superior to, the comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement presentation of our financial results that are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Based upon feedback from investors and financial analysts, we believe that supplemental non-GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to the assessment of our performance and operating trends, as well as liquidity.
 
Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain events, activities, or strategic decisions. The accounting effects of these events, activities or decisions, which are included in the GAAP financial measures, may make it difficult to assess our underlying performance in a single period. By excluding the accounting effects, both positive and negative, of certain items (e.g., restructuring costs, asset impairments, legal settlements, certain effects of strategic transactions and related costs, losses from debt extinguishments, losses from curtailment and settlement of pension obligations, gains or losses on sale of certain assets, and other items), we believe that we are providing meaningful supplemental information to facilitate an understanding of our core operating results and liquidity measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are used internally to evaluate trends in our underlying performance, as well as to facilitate comparison to the results of competitors for a single period. While some of the items we exclude from GAAP financial measures recur, they tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, or timing.
 
We use the following non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying news release and presentation:
 
Organic sales change refers to the increase or decrease in sales excluding the estimated impact of currency translation, product line exits, acquisitions and divestitures, and, where applicable, the extra week in the prior fiscal year.
 
Adjusted operating margin refers to income from continuing operations before interest expense and taxes, excluding restructuring costs and other items, as a percentage of sales.
 
Adjusted tax rate refers to the anticipated full-year GAAP tax rate adjusted for certain events.
 
Adjusted income from continuing operations refers to reported income from continuing operations adjusted for tax-effected restructuring costs and other items.
 
Adjusted EPS refers to reported income from continuing operations per common share, assuming dilution, adjusted for tax-effected restructuring costs and other items.
 
Free cash flow refers to cash flow from operations, less payments for property, plant and equipment, software and other deferred charges, plus proceeds from sales of property, plant and equipment, plus (minus) net proceeds from sales (purchases) of investments. Free cash flow excludes uses of cash that do not directly or immediately support the underlying business, such as discretionary debt reductions, dividends, share repurchases, and certain effects of acquisitions and divestitures (e.g., cash flow from discontinued operations, taxes, and transaction costs).
 
The reconciliations set forth below and in the accompanying presentation are provided in accordance with Regulations G and S-K and reconcile our non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
