Sealed Air Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE:SEE) today announced financial results for second quarter 2013. Net sales for the second quarter 2013 totaled $2.0 billion. Adjusted EPS was $0.35 for the second quarter and Adjusted EBITDA was $276.3 million, or 14.1% of net sales. On a reported basis, net income was $56.3 million, or $0.26 per share.

Unless otherwise stated, all results compare second quarter 2013 results to second quarter 2012 results and are presented on a continuing operations basis, excluding Diversey Japan, which we sold in November 2012 and which results have been presented as discontinued operations. Reported information is defined as U.S. GAAP. Year-over-year net sales discussions present both reported and constant dollar performance. Constant dollar excludes the impact of currency translation. Additionally, non-U.S. GAAP adjusted financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Earnings, exclude the impact of special items, such as restructuring charges and other one-time items. Cash-settled Stock Appreciation Rights granted as part of the Diversey acquisition (“SARs”) did not have a material impact to second quarter 2013 results. For comparison purposes, SARs income was $9.1 million in the second quarter 2012. Additional detail on SARs is provided in the supplemental information.

Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “During the second quarter, we were able to drive strong growth in AMAT and Latin America and modest growth in North America, which helped mitigate a soft global economy, particularly in Europe. We also delivered Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion on a year over year basis in our Food & Beverage and Institutional & Laundry divisions, offset by lower margin performance in Protective Packaging. Our second quarter results demonstrate the benefits we are experiencing from our pricing initiatives and focus on manufacturing and operational improvements.”

“We ended the second quarter with confidence that our plan to improve Sealed Air’s quality of earnings is underway. Our performance in the second quarter across key financial and operational metrics is a true testament to our leadership team and their commitment to deliver on the objectives we have put in place. Going forward, we will continue to further penetrate the global marketplace with innovative products and value-added solutions. We are maintaining our 2013 guidance of net sales in the range of $7.7 to $7.9 billion and are tracking toward the high-end of our Adjusted EBITDA range of $1.01 billion to $1.03 billion and Adjusted EPS range between $1.10 and $1.20,” continued Mr. Peribere.
