TORONTO, Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CCL 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 second quarter results.

Sales for the second quarter of 2021 increased 15.1% to $1,406.3 million, compared to $1,221.9 million for the second quarter of 2020, with organic growth of 20.5%, and acquisition-related growth of 1.5% partially offset by 6.9% negative impact from foreign currency translation.

Operating income(1) for the second quarter of 2021 increased 43.9% to $235.5 million compared to $163.6 million for the comparable quarter of 2020. Operating income(1) improved 51.4%, excluding currency translation.

The Company recorded expenses for restructuring and other items of $2.6 million and $3.8 million for the 2021 and 2020 second quarters, respectively, primarily for reorganization and severance costs.

Tax expense for the second quarter of 2021 was $51.7 million compared to $34.3 million in the prior year period. The effective tax rate for the 2021 second quarter was 25.5% compared to 25.1% for the 2020 second quarter.

U.K. tax legislation passed into law during the quarter resulted in a $8.0 million increase in tax expense due to an increase in future tax rates and a corresponding increase in deferred tax liabilities. This increase in tax expense was largely offset by a $7.3 million reduction in valuation allowances due to improved profitability at certain subsidiaries of the Company. Of this $8.0 million increase to deferred tax liabilities, $4.7 million primarily related to book and tax timing differences and other discreet items. However, $3.3 million related to indefinite life intangibles recognized for accounting purposes that had no corresponding tax basis and were therefore excluded from adjusted basic earnings per share(3).

Net earnings increased 47.3% to $153.0 million for the 2021 second quarter compared to $103.9 million for the 2020 second quarter. Basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) for the 2021 second quarter were $0.86 and $0.89, respectively, compared to basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) of $0.58 and $0.59, respectively, in the prior year second quarter.

Geoffrey T. Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I am pleased to report better-than-expected quarterly results despite ongoing pandemic-related challenges, most severe in parts of Asia Pacific. All Segments posted strong sales growth, up over 20% organically Company-wide, while operating income(1) and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) improved 55.5% and 64.8% respectively, excluding the negative impact of currency translation. Adjusted earnings include $0.02 per Class B share of additional tax expense attributable to new U.K. tax legislation enacted into law during the quarter. Foreign exchange translation prevented the Company posting a record quarter, largely due to the weaker U.S. dollar.”

Mr. Martin continued, “Our CCL Segment generated very strong mid-teens organic sales growth this quarter compared to a mid-single digit decline in the prior year period. This drove approximately 20% improvement in operating income(1) compared to the same period for both 2020 and 2019 with a 16.3% operating margin(1), despite many inflationary challenges. Home & Personal Care results improved significantly, even after the translation impact from a weaker U.S. dollar in North America, where recovery in beauty, skin care and travel related products more than offset slowing end markets for sanitizers and cleansers. Internationally, Europe improved but Emerging Markets’ organic sales gains and profitability were hurt by currency and a challenging pricing environment, respectively. CCL Design results increased dramatically on robust demand recovery in automotive markets compared to a prior year global industry shutdown, while electronics markets faced tough comparisons to a second quarter 2020 inventory rebuild following last year’s first quarter supply chain interruptions in China. Healthcare & Specialty sales were flat organically and profits declined compared to a mix driven, pandemic-related tailwind in the prior year period. Food & Beverage results bounced back sharply following the uptick in 'on-premise' demand. Our label joint ventures in Russia and the Middle East delivered strong earnings growth. CCL Secure posted strong profitability on solid demand from legacy regimes and new customer wins. Results in Brazil included an accounting gain resulting from a favourable Supreme Court decision concerning certain indirect taxes. Checkpoint’s sales and profitability improved dramatically compared to a time in 2020 when many non-essential retail outlets closed down and apparel supply chains in parts of Asia came to a complete stop. Gains in RFID and security technologies fueled growth; results overall easily surpassed the same period in 2019. All product lines in all parts of the world at Avery posted strong gains against a weak prior year period affected by work place disruption. Back-to-school sell in was good but supply chain challenges, especially from China, could affect the replenishment period in the coming quarter. Innovia’s performance also surprised to the upside, as record high resin costs were largely passed on to customers; strong productivity gains, especially in Mexico, and improved mix further augmented results.”

Mr. Martin added, “Looking ahead, we are carefully monitoring the pandemic situation in parts of Asia Pacific and its impact on economic activity, our colleagues and operations. Inflationary pressures also remain on the watch as we attempt to minimize their impact on customers with proposals for lower cost alternatives or, as necessary, cost recovery related price increases. For the second half of 2021, prior year benchmarks are dramatically more challenging than those of the first half, especially the record third quarter of 2020 aided by high margin windfall orders for CCL Secure. Additionally, foreign currency translation reduced earnings $0.05 per share for the second quarter of 2021, largely driven by the significantly lower U.S. dollar. At today’s Canadian dollar exchange rates, currency translation would remain a headwind for the third quarter of 2021, if sustained. Matching the earnings performance of the second half of 2020 over the last six months of 2021 will be challenging.”

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 1.05 times Adjusted EBITDA(2) with $693.3 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 September 16, 2021, to be paid on September 30, 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.
