PGI Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results PR Newswire CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 9, 2012 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Polymer Group, Inc. ("PGI" or the "Company") reported results of operations for the third quarter and nine months ended September 29, 2012. As previously announced, Polymer Group, Inc. finalized the merger with an affiliate of the Blackstone Group, along with co-investors and certain members of the Company's management (the "Merger"), on January 28, 2011, and became a privately held company. In this press release, prior-year nine month results, which include the January 2 to January 28, 2011, and January 29 to October 1, 2011, periods, have been combined. The combined presentation does not comply with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") but is presented because we believe it provides the most meaningful comparison of our financial results. Included in the release is a reconciliation of the GAAP presentation to the combined presentation. Further, as a result of our new organizational structure and to reflect how the overall business is now managed, in the second quarter of 2012 we made a change in our reportable segments to reflect the combination of the United States and Latin America Nonwovens segments into the Americas Nonwovens segment. Third Quarter 2012 Highlights: oVolume Growth in Americas and Asia Contributes to Top Line Results oTotal sales volumes grew 3.9% compared with the prior-year period, and were up 1.7% excluding volumes from the Colombia operations that were disrupted in fiscal year 2011. The year-over-year volume growth reflected contributions of new capacity in the Americas and Asia, combined with improved demand in healthcare and certain industrial markets. oLower selling prices from the pass-through of lower raw material costs, unfavorable market pricing trends, and the impact from the unfavorable effect of foreign currency translation were partially offset by the underlying volume growth. oNet sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $290.1 million compared with $315.5 million for the third quarter of 2011 and $296.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. oProfitability Up on Favorable Raw Material Cost Environment oGross profit increased 6.1% year-over-year to $52.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared with $49.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and was up 12.1% compared to $46.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. oUnit profit was positively impacted by a more favorable raw material environment, resulting in lower raw material costs relative to sales prices, as well as by year-over-year efficiencies from operations in carded operations in the Americas and continued cost controls that resulted in lower SG&A costs. These benefits were somewhat offset by increased lease expense associated with the new line in Virginia, higher depreciation expense and foreign currency translation compared to the prior year period and an out-of-period adjustment for a value-added tax ("VAT") liability in China. oAdjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $37.2 million compared with $35.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $29.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined and reconciled to net income below. oGrowth Investments and New Global Operating Structure are Improving Positioning in Highly Competitive Environment oNew investments in Suzhou, China and Waynesboro, Virginia contributed year-over-year and sequential growth in volume and sales. oThe redesigned organizational structure is complete with the new "Global Growth & Innovation Group" focused on matching resources with existing growth opportunities as well as identifying and developing new applications of PGI technologies and capabilities. oThe new organizational structure is on pace for $11 million to $13 million of annualized savings in fiscal year 2013. oStrong Cash Generation and Disciplined Working Capital Management Continues oLiquidity remained strong with cash balances of $95.1 million as of quarter end. oOperating working capital improved year-over-year to 3.6% of net sales as of September 29, 2012 compared with 5.3% of net sales in the prior year period. PGI's chief executive officer, Veronica (Ronee) M. Hagen, stated, "We demonstrated strong profitability in the third quarter as expected, assisted by a favorable raw material cost environment, continued improvement in cost controls and the initial benefits from our new global operating structure. I'm pleased with the incremental volume gains and sequential growth in the quarter, particularly in the Americas and Asia, as we continue to navigate industry overcapacity in the global hygiene markets and foreign currency headwinds." THIRD QUARTER 2012 RESULTS Net sales for the third quarter of 2012 were $290.1 million compared with $315.5 million for the third quarter of 2011 and $296.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year volume growth that was primarily achieved in the healthcare and industrial market segments was more than offset by lower sales price/mix from the Nonwovens segments and unfavorable foreign currency translation rates. Foreign currency translation rates negatively impacted sales by approximately $12.2 million compared with the third quarter of 2011. Gross profit was $52.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared with $49.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $46.4 million in the second quarter of 2012. Gross profit margin for the quarter was 17.9% compared to 15.7% the prior quarter and 15.5% in the third quarter of 2011. The year-over-year increase in gross profit was predominately due to higher net spreads of $5.3 million (difference between the change in raw material costs and selling price/mix) as raw material costs declined during the quarter, higher volumes related to the contributions from the new lines in Americas and Asia (including improvements from the disruption in operations during 2011 at our Colombia facility), partially offset by an increase in lease expense associated with the new spunmelt line installed in the U.S., the increase in depreciation associated with the new spunmelt manufacturing lines in the U.S. and China, and a $1.3 million out-of-period adjustment recognized in the third quarter of 2012 associated with a VAT liability in China. Raw material costs were lower by $30.6 million, partially offset by decreases in sales price/mix of $25.3 million from the pass-through of lower raw material costs associated with both index-based selling agreements and market-based pricing trends, and changes in product mix. Raw material costs decreased through the third quarter of 2012, but have shown moderate increases to date in the fourth quarter of 2012. As a result, the company expects raw material costs to be a headwind to profitability in the fourth quarter. The quarter-over-quarter increase of $5.6 million in gross profit was due primarily to the more favorable raw material environment, resulting in lower raw material costs partially offset by a relative increase in selling price changes due to the effect of competitive selling pressures from excess industry capacity in several regions. These changes, in addition to the impact of sales and mix changes from the second quarter of 2012 to the third quarter of 2012, favorably impacted gross profit by approximately $4.9 million. Sales volumes were 2.8% higher in the third quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2012, contributing to a $1.8 million increase. Increases in manufacturing costs, primarily due to the previously mentioned out-of-period adjustment associated with a VAT liability in China, and higher depreciation expense during the quarter, were offset by favorable foreign currency movements. Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $17.4 million compared with operating income of $11.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 and operating income of $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. Of the $6.0 million year-over-year increase in operating income, net spread resulted in an improvement of $5.3 million, and the net impact of the increase in volumes contributed to an increase of $3.7 million. This was partially offset by higher manufacturing costs in the Americas region of $2.1 million primarily related to the additional lease expense associated with a new U.S. spunmelt line, and higher costs in our Asia region of $1.8 million due to the previously mentioned $1.3 million VAT adjustment and higher costs due to the qualification of new products on the new healthcare line, partially offset by improvement in underlying operating efficiencies. Other changes included a year-over-year decrease in selling, general and administrative costs of $1.5 million, a positive impact of $0.7 million due to a favorable change in foreign currency, $0.1 million of lower purchase accounting adjustments associated with 2011 step-up of inventory values, partially offset by $0.3 million due to higher special charges, and a $0.7 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense that was primarily associated with the new spunmelt manufacturing lines installed in fiscal 2011. The $1.5 million year-over-year decrease in selling, general and administrative costs was principally due to a $1.3 million decrease due to foreign currency movements and $0.2 million lower spending in other categories due to cost control initiatives. Special charges for the third quarter of 2012 were $1.7 million and consisted of: $0.9 million of employee termination and severance expenses associated with our plant realignment cost initiatives; and $0.8 million of employee termination expenses, professional consulting fees, employee relocation and recruitment fees, and other professional and administrative costs associated with our internal redesign and restructuring of global operations initiative. After recognizing $2.6 million of income tax expense, the company reported net income for the third quarter of 2012 of $1.4 million compared with a net loss of $9.2 million in the third quarter of 2011 and a net loss of $12.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 29, 2012, AND OCTOBER 1, 2011 (COMBINED) RESULTS Net sales for the nine months ended September 29, 2012 were $881.5 million compared with $895.6 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2011. The decrease was due to lower selling prices as a result of lower raw material costs and unfavorable movements in foreign currency translation rates, partially offset by higher volumes in the company's Nonwovens segments; of which $33.2 million was associated with higher volumes at our Colombia facility compared to the prior year when our facility was impacted by the flood at the location, with increases in all regions, and higher volumes and higher price/mix in the Oriented Polymers segment. Gross profit for the nine months ended September 29, 2012 was $151.6 million compared with $138.4 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2011. The increase was primarily the result of the absence of $11.8 million of purchase accounting adjustments in 2011 primarily associated with the stepped-up inventory values and higher volume related to the disruption in operations during 2011 at our Colombia facility, offset by an increase in lease expense associated with the new spunmelt line installed in the U.S., the increase in depreciation associated with the new spunmelt manufacturing lines in the U.S. and China and an out-of-period adjustment recognized in the third quarter of 2012. Net spread resulted in an improvement in gross profit of $5.7 million, as raw material costs were lower by $43.6 million, but were partially offset by decreases in sales price/mix of $37.9 million from the pass-through of lower raw material costs associated with both index-based selling agreements and market-based pricing trends, and changes in product mix. The company reported operating income for the nine months ended September 29, 2012 of $37.1 million compared with an operating loss of $24.1 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2011. Of the $61.2 million improvement in the year-over-year operating income, $37.4 million was due to lower special charges, primarily associated with costs resulting from the Merger, partially offset by the costs resulting from the internal redesign and restructuring of global operations initiative. The net impact of the increase in volumes due to the disruptions in fiscal 2011 at our Colombia facility, combined with other changes in the business, resulted in an increase in operating income due to volume of $12.8 million. Our net spread resulted in an increase of $5.7 million in 2012 compared to 2011. We incurred $11.8 million of lower purchase accounting adjustments primarily associated with the 2011 step-up of inventory values. Manufacturing costs were $6.9 million higher due primarily to $6.2 million of additional lease expense associated with the new spunmelt manufacturing line in the U.S. and increases in Asia due to the $1.3 million out-of-period adjustment in the third quarter of 2012 and the qualification of new products on the new healthcare line in China, partially offset by improvements in the U.S. carded business and improved operating efficiencies in Asia. The $7.5 million year-over-year decrease in selling, general and administrative costs was principally due to a $3.6 million decrease due to foreign currency movements; $2.7 million of lower incentive and stock compensation expense; a $1.6 million decrease in salaries and benefits and employee travel and entertainment expenses due to cost reduction initiatives; a $0.6 million decrease in volume-related expenses and $0.1 million lower spending in other categories; partially offset by $1.1 million of higher outside information services costs. After recognizing $5.9 million of income tax expense, the company reported a net loss for the nine months ended September 29, 2012 of $11.0 million compared with a net loss attributable to PGI of $73.0 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2011. FINANCIAL METRICS Net debt (defined as total debt less cash balances) as of September 29, 2012 was $511.2 million compared with $527.7 million as of December 31, 2011. Capital expenditures for the third quarter were $10.5 million. Operating working capital (defined as accounts receivable plus inventories less trade accounts payable and accrued liabilities) was $41.8 million as of September 29, 2012, or 3.6% of third quarter 2012 annualized sales, compared with $66.5 million as of October 1, 2011, or 5.3% of third quarter 2011 annualized sales. ADJUSTED EBITDA Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $37.2 million compared with $35.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $29.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 due primarily to higher volumes in all regions, coupled with the impact of the pass-through of lower raw material costs on sales/price mix, offset by the absence of a proforma addback in the prior-year period reflecting the annualized incremental contribution from the company's Colombia operations prior to the flood, the impact from the higher lease expense associated with the company's new line in Waynesboro, Virginia, and the impact of the Asia VAT adjustment. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES As more fully described in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Merger was accounted for in accordance with GAAP for business combinations. Accordingly, our accounting for the Merger required that the purchase accounting treatment of the Merger be "pushed down", resulting in the adjustment of all of our net assets to their respective fair values as of the Merger date of January 28, 2011. Although we continued as the same legal entity after the Merger, the application of push down accounting represents the termination of the old reporting entity and the creation of a new reporting entity. Accordingly, the two entities are not presented on a consistent basis of accounting. As a result, our consolidated financial statements for 2011 are presented for the period from January 29, 2011 through October 1, 2011 for the new reporting entity succeeding the Merger (the "Successor"), and for the period from January 2, 2011 through January 28, 2011 for the old reporting entity preceding the Merger (the "Predecessor"). The combined presentation in this press release is a "non-GAAP financial measure" and does not comply with GAAP, but is presented because we believe it provides the most meaningful comparison of our results. The results of the Successor are not comparable to the results of the Predecessor due to the difference in basis of presentation of purchase accounting as compared to historical cost. Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) is used in this release as a "non-GAAP financial measure," which is a measure of the company's financial performance that is different from measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP within the meaning of applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules. A non-GAAP financial measure, such as EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA, should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance such as (1) net income determined in accordance with GAAP or (2) operating cash flows determined in accordance with GAAP. The calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies. As defined in the company's indenture and credit agreements, Adjusted EBITDA is generally calculated as net income (loss) before interest expense, income and franchise taxes and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude the effects of currency and certain unusual, non-cash, non-recurring and other items permitted in calculating covenant compliance under the indenture governing the Senior Secured Notes and the credit agreement governing our ABL facility. With certain exceptions, it is also generally consistent with the metric used by management as a performance measurement for certain performance-based incentive compensation plans. In addition, the company considers Adjusted EBITDA an important supplemental measure of its performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry. Included in this release are reconciliations of the GAAP presentation to the combined presentation for the nine months ended October 1, 2011 and a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA, which illustrates the differences in these measures of operating performance.
