TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 9, 2022 / CCL Industries Inc. (TSX:CCL.A)(TSX:CCL.B) ("the Company"), a world leader in specialty label, security and packaging solutions for global corporations, government institutions, small businesses and consumers, today reported 2022 third quarter results.

Sales for the third quarter of 2022 increased 11.4% to $1,658.1 million compared to $1,488.2 million for the third quarter of 2021, with organic growth of 8.8% and acquisition-related growth of 4.9%, partially offset by 2.3% negative impact from foreign currency translation.

Operating income(1) for the third quarter of 2022 improved 10.2% to $246.8 million compared to $223.9 million for the comparable quarter of 2021. Operating income(1) increased 11.6%, excluding currency translation.

The Company recorded an expense for restructuring and other items of $3.3 million, primarily severance charges relating to plant consolidations at Checkpoint compared to $0.7 million for reorganization costs in the 2021 third quarter.

Tax expense for the third quarter of 2022 was $47.6 million compared to $47.8 million in the prior year period. The effective tax rate for the 2022 third quarter was 22.9%, lower than the 24.1% for the 2021 third quarter due to a higher portion of the Company's taxable income earned in lower tax jurisdictions.

Net earnings increased 6.9% to $163.9 million for the 2022 third quarter compared to $153.3 million for the 2021 third quarter. Basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) were $0.93 and $0.95, respectively for the 2022 third quarter, compared to basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) of $0.85, in the prior year third quarter.

Geoffrey T. Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "In the context of extraordinary inflationary pressures in the developed world, including highly volatile energy markets, plus Covid restrictions in China, I am pleased to report strong third quarter results with a record $0.95 adjusted basic earnings per class B share."

Mr. Martin continued, "The CCL Segment carried the quarter posting 13.2% organic sales growth driving over 25.5% improvement in operating income. Strong Home & Personal Care results derived from all product categories in the Americas; with improvement in European labels offset by softness in Asia. Healthcare & Specialty excelled globally on share gains with only consumer garden chemicals slow compared to a prior year boom. Food & Beverage improved sequentially on European price increases and comparatively on new business wins in Emerging Markets, with softer U.S. markets an offset. The global slowdown in the technology sector affected CCL Design, although new application wins in electronics more than compensated, alongside strong growth in automotive as OEM production volumes increased. CCL Secure posted good results compared to a very modest 2021 third quarter. Our label joint ventures posted strong earnings growth. As we surmised, Avery's back-to-school season ended early this quarter, just as it started earlier than usual in the second quarter, as retailer inventory caution prevailed. Direct-to-consumer results were good except at the two acquisitions in the horticultural space where demand was soft. The Adelbras tapes acquisition in Brazil continued to perform well. Checkpoint delivered double digit organic sales growth in ALS on RFID driven gains, but solid MAS sales progress in the Americas could not offset profitability declines in soft European and Asian markets. Results for Checkpoint included an $11.9 million gain on disposition of excess real estate in China. Unprecedented energy inflation in Europe, increased transportation rates, start-up costs for the new "Ecofloat" line in Poland and the impact of lower prices from falling resin indices squeezing margins short term from higher cost inventories combined to significantly reduce Innovia profitability."

Mr. Martin added, "Our fourth quarter outlook is somewhat clouded by the impact of inflation; although the summer speculative European energy hikes subsided and many other commodities moved off highs by some distance, potential for event driven volatility remains. The demand picture is stable but less certain, with ongoing strength in some businesses now offset by slower conditions in others. The economic forecast for 2023 suggests a deterioration of some note over 2022 conditions, but as always, we focus on making progress in both good and challenging times. At today's Canadian dollar exchange rates, currency translation would be a modest headwind, if sustained, for the fourth quarter of 2022; as weaker European and Asia Pacific currencies more than offset stronger ones in the U.S. and Latin America."

Mr. Martin concluded, "The Company finished the quarter with a strong balance sheet and robust liquidity. The Company's consolidated leverage ratio(5) at 1.46 times Adjusted EBITDA(2) with $700.8 million of cash-on-hand and US$0.8 billion undrawn capacity on its syndicated revolving credit facility, leaves us well placed to fund global expansion initiatives. The Board of Directors declared the quarterly dividend at $0.24 per Class B non-voting share and $0.2375 per Class A voting share, payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 15, 2022, to be paid on December 29, 2022."

Forward-looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking information and forward-looking statements (hereinafter collectively referred to as "forward-looking statements"), as defined under applicable securities laws, that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are predictive in nature or depend on future events or conditions. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "estimates," "intends," "plans" or similar expressions. Statements regarding the operations, business, financial condition, priorities, ongoing objectives, strategies and outlook of the Company, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. Specifically, this press release contains forward-looking statements regarding the challenge of matching fourth quarter 2021 earnings for the coming period; the impact of foreign currency exchange rates on the 2022 fourth quarter; the expectation that the demand forecast for 2023 suggests a deterioration compared to 2022; the income and profitability of the Company's segments; and the Company's expectations regarding inflation, general business and economic conditions.

Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. They involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties relating to future events and conditions including, but not limited to, the impact of competition; consumer confidence and spending preferences; general economic and geopolitical conditions; currency exchange rates; interest rates and credit availability; technological change; changes in government regulations; risks associated with operating and product hazards; and the Company's ability to attract and retain qualified employees. Do not unduly rely on forward-looking statements as the Company's actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are also based on a number of assumptions, which may prove to be incorrect, including, but not limited to, assumptions about the following: global economic environment and higher consumer spending; improved customer demand for the Company's products; continued historical growth trends, market growth in specific sectors and entering into new sectors; the Company's ability to provide a wide range of products to multinational customers on a global basis; the benefits of the Company's focused strategies and operational approach; the achievement of the Company's plans for improved efficiency and lower costs, including stable aluminum costs; the availability of cash and credit; fluctuations of currency exchange rates; fluctuations in resin prices; the Company's continued relations with its customers; and economic conditions. Should one or more risks materialize or should any assumptions prove incorrect, then actual results could vary materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Further details on key risks can be found in the 2021 Annual Report, Management's Discussion and Analysis, particularly under Section 4: "Risks and Uncertainties." CCL Industries Inc.'s annual and quarterly reports can be found online at www.cclind.com and www.sedar.com or are available upon request.

Except as otherwise indicated, forward-looking statements do not take into account the effect that transactions or non-recurring or other special items announced or occurring after the statements are made may have on the Company's business. Such statements do not, unless otherwise specified by the Company, reflect the impact of dispositions, sales of assets, monetizations, mergers, acquisitions, other business combinations or transactions, asset write-downs or other charges announced or occurring after forward-looking statements are made. The financial impact of these transactions and non-recurring and other special items can be complex and depends on the facts particular to each of them and therefore cannot be described in a meaningful way in advance of knowing specific facts. The forward-looking statements are provided as of the date of this press release and the Company does not assume any obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements to reflect new events or circumstances, except as required by law.

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.
