Neenah Reports Consecutive Record Quarterly Top Line Results

Continued Strong Demand, with Full-year Revenues Near All-time High

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--()--Neenah, Inc. (NYSE:NP) today reported 2021 fourth quarter and full year results.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Consolidated net sales of $264.3 million were 28 percent higher than the prior year, setting a new record for fourth quarter revenues. The revenue growth was attributable to organic volume gains in both segments, pricing actions and the effects of the Itasa acquisition.
  • Fine Paper & Packaging pricing and other actions contributed to an adjusted EBIT margin of 13 percent, with adjusted operating income of $12.3 million from $97.6 million of net sales.
  • Earnings (loss) per diluted common share of $(0.41) compared to $0.59 in the fourth quarter of 2020. Adjusted earnings per share of $0.45 decreased from $0.87 in the prior year.
  • Available liquidity of $170 million remained strong, with cash generated from operations of $12.9 million.
  • Quarterly cash dividends were $0.475 per share, an increase for the 11th consecutive year.
  • We are investing 25 million Euros in new meltblown capacity in our German filtration facility.

Full Year Highlights

  • We achieved an improvement in our safety recordable incident rate by approximately 30 percent.
  • Net sales of $1,028.5 million increased 30 percent compared to 2020, primarily driven by organic volume growth, pricing actions and the impact of the acquisition of Itasa.
  • A loss per diluted common share of ($1.49) compared to a loss of $(0.96) per share in 2020. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share of $2.53 compared with $2.46 per share in 2020. Improvements in profitability from top line growth were partially offset by significantly higher input costs and impacts of supply chain disruptions.
  • In April 2021, we acquired Itasa, a leading global coater and converter of release liners used in hygiene, tapes, industrial labels, composites and various other end markets. The purchase price was $240.2 million, and in the first nine months of ownership, Itasa has generated incremental net sales of $106.9 million.
  • We executed several operational initiatives, including a $13 million investment in new coating capacity starting up in 2023, closure of our Appleton, Wisconsin facility to save $7-8 million annually, and restarting an idled asset to support growth in premium packaging.
  • We made meaningful progress on key environmental, social and governance initiatives, including actions designed to reduce energy usage, water consumption and greenhouse gases, recognition through leading sustainability rating agencies (including EcoVadis Gold Medal in Spain and Silver Medal in all other locations) and advancements in the diversity of our Board of Directors (with half identifying as female or underrepresented minorities).

“Adjusted earnings” is a non-GAAP measure and is used to improve comparability of year-on-year results. Adjusted figures are reconciled to GAAP later in this release.

“Demand remained very strong in the fourth quarter and we began to see margin improvement against a backdrop of challenging manufacturing and supply chain conditions. We continue to address this dynamic environment with pricing actions and other internal initiatives to restore margins, including several annual pricing agreements taking effect in early 2022,” said Julie Schertell, Chief Executive Officer. “Looking back, 2021 was a foundation building year for Neenah. We took decisive actions to both expand and streamline our business, including a strategic acquisition and a facility closure, while making meaningful progress on our strategic agenda. I am confident our decisions and actions have positioned us well for continued top line growth, margin accretion and shareholder value creation.”

Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

Income Statement

Consolidated net sales of $264.3 million in the fourth quarter increased 28 percent compared with $206.9 million in the prior year. Revenues in Fine Paper and Packaging were 29 percent higher and Technical Products increased 27 percent. The increases included strong organic volume growth, input cost recovery pricing actions, and incremental net sales from the Itasa acquisition. Offsetting effects included a lower value sales mix in Technical Products and unfavorable currency translation.

Operating income (loss) of $(4.2) million in 2021 decreased from $14.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. In 2021, operating income included unfavorable adjusting items totaling $18.1 million and in 2020 operating income included unfavorable items totaling $6.0 million. Excluding these items, adjusted operating income of $13.9 million in 2021 decreased from $20.9 million in 2020. Despite strong volume growth, operating income was impacted by significantly higher raw material and energy costs, which outpaced the benefits realized from pricing actions, as well as manufacturing inefficiencies due to supply chain and labor disruptions.

Net interest expense of $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 increased from $3.1 million in the prior year period due to the higher borrowing under the upsized Term Loan B and amortization of the associated deferred financing costs.

The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of 2021 was 25 percent compared to a rate of 15 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020. In 2020, the tax rate included a reduction in tax expense of $0.9 million from utilization of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act").

The GAAP earnings (loss) per diluted common share of $(0.41) in 2021 compared to $0.59 in 2020. On an adjusted basis, earnings per share of $0.45 in the 2021 quarter decreased from $0.87 in the prior year period, due to lower operating income resulting primarily from input cost pressures and supply chain constraints that more than offset our sales recovery, our pricing initiatives and the accretive benefits of the Itasa acquisition.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash provided from operations in the fourth quarter of $12.9 million was unchanged from $13.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Capital spending of $9.2 million in the fourth quarter compared to $7.1 million in the prior year. Net cash generated was used to reduce debt and return cash to shareholders through dividend payments.

Cash dividends of $8.0 million and $8.0 million, or $0.475 per share and $0.47 per share, were paid in the fourth quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31 were $23.9 million, which was down from $31.7 million as of September 30, 2021. Outstanding debt as of December 31 was $441.3 million and decreased slightly from $441.7 million at September 30.. The increase from $194.4 million as of December 31, 2020 was due to the upsizing of our Term Loan B from $200 million to $450 million in April 2021 primarily to fund the Itasa acquisition. Liquidity was $170.0 million (cash plus availability under our Global Credit Facilities) as of December 31, 2021.

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Technical Products net sales of $166.7 million in the fourth quarter increased 27 percent compared with prior year sales of $131.2 million. The revenue increased due to incremental net sales of $37.7 million from the acquisition of Itasa and pricing actions to recover raw material input cost increases. These increases were offset by a lower value sales mix in 2021, which included impacts from limited availability of some raw materials from supply chain constraints, adverse foreign currency translation and the impact of closure of the Appleton facility in September.

Operating income of $4.7 million in the fourth quarter decreased from prior year income of $13.9 million. Operating income in 2021 included $1.4 million of unfavorable adjustments of a pension settlement loss and other closure costs of the Appleton facility, and in 2020 included unfavorable items of $4.0 million related to an impairment loss of a foreign JV investment, COVID-19 and other non-routine costs. Excluding these items, adjusted operating income of $6.1 million in 2021 decreased from prior year income of $17.9 million as a result of higher pulp and specialty chemical input, energy and distribution costs, a lower value sales mix, along with manufacturing cost inefficiencies from higher workforce turnover and labor costs. The facilities were faced with higher workforce turnover which led to incremental training, bonus and overtime costs, and adverse productivity and waste. Also, we experienced a lag in executing certain customer pricing actions to recover input cost increases, as some are subject to annual (calendar year) adjustment contract provisions.

Fine Paper & Packaging net sales of $97.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 was 29 percent higher compared with prior year sales of $75.7 million. The increase reflects a continued growth in all product categories, especially in premium packaging and consumer products. In addition, net selling prices were higher in 2021 due to a higher priced mix and pricing actions to recover raw material input costs.

Operating income of $11.9 million in the fourth quarter increased from $6.7 million in 2020. Income in 2021 included adjusting items of $0.4 million for COVID-19 and other non-routine costs, and compared to $1.1 million of adjusting items in 2020 related to those same items and a pension settlement loss. Excluding these items, adjusted operating income of $12.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 increased from $7.8 million in 2020 due to volume growth, selling price increases and a favorable change in product mix.

Unallocated corporate costs in the fourth quarter of 2021 were $20.8 million compared with $5.7 million in 2020. Unallocated corporate costs included net unfavorable adjustments of $16.3 million in 2021, primarily related to a $15.6 million pension settlement loss from an annuity purchase transaction. Excluding these items, unallocated corporate cost of $4.5 million decreased from $4.8 million in 2020.

Full Year 2021 Consolidated Results

Consolidated net sales of $1,028.5 million in 2021 were 30 percent higher than the prior year. The increase in net sales resulted primarily from strong organic volume growth in both segments, from pricing actions in response to input cost increases and from the Itasa acquisition which contributed $106.9 million to the change in the Technical Products segment. Net sales grew 38 percent in Technical Products and 18 percent in Fine Paper and Packaging. In addition to the incremental impacts from Itasa, the Technical Products segment volume increased significantly but was adversely affected by a lower value sales mix in 2021. The increase in net sales in the Fine Paper and Packaging segment was due to higher demand, increased selling prices and a higher value sales mix.

Consolidated operating income decreased $5.7 million from prior year to a loss of $11.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. Excluding adjusting items in both years, adjusted operating income of $72.0 million increased $7.6 million from $64.4 million in 2020. We recorded $83.8 million of adjusting items in 2021, including non-cash impairment and asset restructuring costs, pension and SERP settlement/curtailment losses, acquisition and integration costs, loss on debt extinguishment, incremental costs of COVID-19 and other restructuring and non-routine costs. Adjusting items of $70.5 million in 2020 included similar items. Despite the robust sales volume growth and pricing actions in both segments, operating income was challenged by a lower value sales mix in the Technical Products segment and significantly higher input and distribution costs, which were further impacted by supply chain constraints. Additionally, manufacturing costs for both segments increased due to higher workforce turnover and labor costs.

Net income decreased $9.1 million from a loss of $15.8 million in 2020 to a loss of $24.9 million in 2021. The effective income tax (benefit) rate in 2021 was (16) percent in both years. After excluding items noted on the non-GAAP reconciliation table, adjusted net income of $42.9 million increased $1.0 million in 2021.

Earnings (loss) per diluted share of $(1.49) in 2021 compared with $(0.96) in 2020. After excluding items noted in the GAAP reconciliation table, 2021 adjusted earnings per share of $2.53 increased compared to $2.46 in 2020.

Cash provided by operating activities of $53.2 million for 2021 was $40.2 million lower than $93.4 million in the prior year. The decrease resulted from the increase in working capital needs resulting from the 30 percent rebound in net sales in 2021 compared to the COVID-impacted level of business activity and spending in 2020. Also, we had significantly higher global tax payments in 2021 due to payment of one-half of the U.S. payroll taxes which had been deferred from 2020 and from higher foreign entities' taxable income.

Capital spending of $28.2 million in 2021 compared with $18.9 million in 2020, which was influenced by 2020 COVID-19 cost controls.

2022 Outlook

The following items are expected to impact 2022 results:

  • Continued robust revenue growth driven by increasing volumes in our four growth platforms
  • Benefits from pricing (especially from annual Filtration contracts) and other actions to address inflationary pressures across all lines of business
  • Input costs to remain at elevated levels; year-on-year comparison most acute in first half of 2022
  • Challenging supply chain and US labor cost and availability environment
  • Incremental EBITDA impact of the Itasa acquisition (approximately $5 million) and Appleton facility closure (approximately $6 million) for three and nine months, respectively, of 2022
  • Capital spending of approximately 4 to 5% of net sales, influenced by capacity expansions in process

Reconciliation to GAAP Measures

The Company will report adjustments to GAAP figures when they are believed to improve the comparability and understanding of results. In these instances, a reconciliation of adjusted income measures to comparable GAAP measures will be provided, as shown below and in the financial attachments:
