SEE Reports Q2 2021 Results

SEE (NYSE: SEE) today announced financial results for the second quarter 2021.

“Demand for our automated and sustainable packaging solutions drove a net sales increase of 15%, supported by a 9% volume growth. Adjusted EBITDA increased 1% as higher sales and productivity improvements were offset by widespread supply challenges and dramatic inflationary pressure. Despite this adverse environment, our SEE Operating Engine is delivering,” said Ted Doheny, SEE’s President and CEO.

“We are raising our 2021 sales and EPS outlook and reaffirming Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow guidance.

“We are accelerating our journey to world-class by increasing our investment in ‘touchless’ automation, digital and sustainability, while returning capital to shareholders, as demonstrated by our announced 25% dividend increase and share repurchases,” continued Doheny.

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare second quarter 2021 to second quarter 2020 results from continuing operations. Year-over-year financial discussions present operating results from continuing operations as reported. Year-over-year comparisons are also made on a constant dollar basis, which is a non-U.S. GAAP measure. Constant dollar refers to changes in net sales and earnings, including changes in unit volume and price performance, but excluding the impact of currency translation. Additionally, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted financial measures, such as Adjusted Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”), Adjusted Net Earnings, Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”) and Adjusted Tax Rate, exclude the impact of specified items (“Special Items”), such as restructuring charges, restructuring associated costs, gains and losses related to acquisition and divestiture of businesses, special tax items (“Tax Special Items”) and certain infrequent or one-time items. Please refer to the supplemental information included with this press release for a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Business Highlights

Second quarter net sales in Food were $737 million, an increase of 9% as reported. Currency had a favorable impact of $26 million. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased $37 million, or 6%, with volumes up $28 million, or 4%. Strength in automation, combined with higher food service demand as compared to last year, contributed to a constant dollar growth of 8% in the Americas and 3% in EMEA, while APAC saw a decline of 2%. Adjusted EBITDA of $158 million, or 21.5% of net sales, compares to $169 million, or 25.1% of net sales, in the prior year. Volume growth and productivity improvements were more than offset by negative price/cost spread related to higher input costs, combined with the delayed timing of formula-based price increases. Food also incurred higher freight costs in an effort to meet increased customer demand while managing global supply disruptions.

Second quarter net sales in Protective were $592 million, an increase of 24% as reported. Currency had a favorable impact of $20 million, or 4%. On a constant dollar basis, net sales increased $94 million, or 20%, driven by a 15% increase in volumes. Continued strength in eCommerce and automation, combined with higher industrial demand as compared to last year, contributed to constant dollar growth of 38% in EMEA and 19% in the Americas. Adjusted EBITDA increased 17% to $107 million, or 18.1% of sales, as compared to $92 million, or 19.1% of net sales, in the prior year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to sales growth, partially offset by negative price/cost spread related to higher input costs to help meet customer demand.

Second Quarter 2021 U.S. GAAP Summary

Net sales of $1.3 billion increased 15% as reported. Currency contributed $46 million, or approximately 4%, to net sales growth, as compared to second quarter 2020.

This compares to our previous outlook of $3.40 to $3.55 per share based on 154 million shares outstanding and an Adjusted Tax Rate of 26% to 27%.

The Company continues to expect Free Cash Flow in 2021 to be in the range of $520 million to $570 million.

Website Information

We routinely post important information for investors on our website, www.sealedair.com, in the Investors section. We use this website as a means of disclosing material, non-public information and for complying with our disclosure obligations under Regulation FD. Accordingly, investors should monitor the Investors section of our website, in addition to following our press releases, SEC filings, public conference calls, presentations and webcasts. The information contained on, or that may be accessed through, our website is not incorporated by reference into, and is not a part of, this document.

Non-U.S. GAAP Information

In this press release and supplement, we have included several non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including Net Debt, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted EPS, net sales on an “organic” and a “constant dollar” basis, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Tax Rate, as our management believes these measures are useful to investors. We present results and guidance, adjusted to exclude the effects of Special Items and their related tax impact that would otherwise be included under U.S. GAAP, to aid in comparisons with other periods or prior guidance. In addition, non-U.S. GAAP measures are used by management to review and analyze our operating performance and, along with other data, as internal measures for setting annual budgets and forecasts, assessing financial performance, providing guidance and comparing our financial performance with our peers and may also be used for purposes of determining incentive compensation. The non-U.S. GAAP information has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP information. It does not purport to represent any similarly titled U.S. GAAP information and is not an indicator of our performance under U.S. GAAP. Non-U.S. GAAP financial measures that we present may not be comparable with similarly titled measures used by others. Investors are cautioned against placing undue reliance on these non-U.S. GAAP measures. For a reconciliation of these U.S. GAAP measures to non-U.S. GAAP measures and other important information on our use of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, see the attached supplementary information entitled “Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows” (under the section entitled “Non-U.S. GAAP Free Cash Flow”), “Reconciliation of Net Earnings and Net Earnings Per Common Share to Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings and Non-U.S. GAAP Adjusted Net Earnings Per Common Share,” “Reconciliation of Net Earnings to Non-U.S. GAAP Total Company Adjusted EBITDA,” “Components of Change in Net Sales by Segment” and “Components of Change in Net Sales by Region.” Information reconciling forward-looking U.S. GAAP measures to non-U.S. GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

We have not provided guidance for the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, as they are not available without unreasonable effort due to the high variability, complexity, and low visibility with respect to certain Special Items, including restructuring charges, gains and losses related to acquisition and divestiture of businesses, the ultimate outcome of certain legal or tax proceedings, and other unusual gains and losses. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to our results computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 concerning our business, consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

______________________

(1)

Our volume reported above includes the net impact of changes in unit volume as well as the period-to-period change in the mix of products sold.

(2)

Total constant dollar change is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure which excludes the impact of foreign currency translation. Since we are a U.S. domiciled company, we translate our foreign currency denominated financial results into U.S. dollars. Due to changes in the value of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar, translating our financial results from foreign currencies to U.S. dollars may result in a favorable or unfavorable impact. It is important that we take into account the effects of foreign currency translation when we view our results and plan our strategies. Nonetheless, we cannot control changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Consequently, when our management looks at our financial results to measure the core performance of our business, we exclude the impact of foreign currency translation by translating our current period results at prior period foreign currency exchange rates. We also may exclude the impact of foreign currency translation when making incentive compensation determinations. As a result, our management believes that these presentations are useful internally and may be useful to our investors.

(3)

As of January 1, 2021, we consolidated the reporting of the North America and South America geographic regions, which are now collectively presented as Americas. No changes were made to EMEA or APAC. This change has no impact on our prior period consolidated results and is only the aggregation of the previously bifurcated continents.
