CCL Industries Inc. (TSX: CCL.A) (TSX: CCL.B) ("CCLInd" or "the Company"), a world leader in specialty label and packaging solutions for global corporations, government institutions, small businesses and consumers, today reported 2017 second quarter results.

Sales for the second quarter of 2017 increased 30.5% to $1,252.9 million, compared to $960.2 million for the second quarter of 2016, with 1.9% organic growth, 2.5% positive currency translation impact and 26.1% acquisition-related growth, primarily driven by the acquisitions of Checkpoint Systems, Inc. ("Checkpoint") on May 13, 2016, and Innovia Group of Companies ("Innovia") on February 28, 2017.

Operating income(1) for the second quarter of 2017 was $188.3 million, an increase of 31.6% compared to $143.1 million for the comparable quarter of 2016. Included in the 2017 second quarter was a $6.4 million non-cash acquisition accounting adjustment related to the acquired finished goods inventory from the Innovia acquisition that was expensed in the Company's cost of sales for the quarter. Excluding this non-cash adjustment, operating income was $194.7 million for the second quarter of 2017. Excluding a similar $16.6 million non-cash accounting adjustment primarily related to the acquired finished goods inventory of the Checkpoint acquisition in 2016, the 2016 operating income was $159.7 million.

Restructuring and other items of $5.2 million were reported for the second quarter of 2017. This consisted of severance costs of $2.2 million for each of the Checkpoint and Innovia acquisitions, as well as other acquisition related transaction costs of $0.8 million. There was a net expense for restructuring and other items of $18.9 million in the 2016 second quarter.

Tax expense in the second quarter of 2017 was $41.8 million compared to $31.2 million in the prior year period. The effective tax rates for these two periods were 27.7% and 30.5%, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate is the result of a higher portion of pre-tax income being earned in lower tax jurisdictions in the second quarter of 2017 principally driven by the Innovia and Checkpoint acquisitions compared to the same quarter of 2016. The third quarter 2017 effective tax rate should increase compared to the 2017 second quarter as the North American back-to-school sales increase for the Avery Segment.

Net earnings were $109.9 million for the 2017 second quarter compared to $72.2 million for the 2016 second quarter. Basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) were $0.63 and $0.68, respectively, compared to basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) of $0.42 and $0.56, respectively, in the prior year second quarter.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2017, sales, operating income and net earnings improved 26.7%, 18.5% and 22.2% to $2.3 billion, $347.2 million and $197.8 million, respectively, compared to the same six-month period in 2016. Included in the 2017 six-month period was a $15.2 million non-cash acquisition accounting adjustment to the acquired finished goods inventory from the Innovia acquisition that was expensed through cost of goods sold in the period. Excluding this non-cash adjustment, operating income was $362.4 million. The 2016 six-month period included non-cash acquisition accounting adjustments to acquired finished goods inventories of $16.6 million, therefore comparative operating income was $309.6 million. The 2017 six-month period included results from eleven acquisitions completed since January 1, 2016, delivering acquisition related growth for the period of 25.6%. Organic sales growth of 2.0% provided the foundation for solid profit improvement and foreign currency translation had a negative impact of $0.01 per share. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2017, basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) were $1.13 and $1.25, respectively, compared to basic and adjusted basic earnings per Class B share(3) of $0.93 and $1.09, respectively, in the prior year six-month period.

Geoffrey T. Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Second quarter results were underpinned by the newly configured CCL delivering healthy 5.7% organic sales growth considering the timing of Easter and a challenging double digit comparative for the prior year period. CCL Secure had an excellent first full quarter with results above expectations from the Innovia Security acquisition while CCL Design outperformed on stronger demand from Electronics customers. Consumer Packaging and Healthcare end markets also posted growth, as did CCL overall in all major geographies. Checkpoint delivered another good quarter eclipsing the partial post acquisition second quarter of 2016. Avery performance lagged 2016's second quarter on superstore closures and soft wholesaler demand in the changing U.S. distribution landscape; Canadian and international operations plus direct to consumer businesses grew low single digits with improved profitability. With considerable regret, I can confirm that in early June, after many years, CCL Container finally ceased operations in Canada. An unfortunate event driven by currency volatility and the move of customers' North American aerosol filling operations to the United States and Mexico. The transition negatively affected results for the first half but we expect Container's performance for the balance of 2017 to be in line with the prior year period. Innovia's film business profitability was significantly lower than expected due to an intra-quarter spike in polypropylene resin prices that, so far partially reversed in the third quarter."

Mr. Martin continued, "Foreign currency translation impact was nominal to earnings for both the second quarter and first half of 2017. At today's Canadian dollar exchange rates, currency translation would be a headwind, if sustained, for the third quarter of 2017."

Mr. Martin concluded, "Through the first six months of 2017, debt repayments totaled $136 million and coupled with improved profitability measures including the trailing results of the acquired business, the Company reduced its net leverage ratio(4), to 2.2 times EBITDA(2), at the end of the second quarter. With cash-on-hand of $477 million, undrawn capacity of US$257 million on our syndicated revolving credit facility, the balance sheet and liquidity positions of the Company remain strong. Given the solid free cash flow outlook for 2017, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.115 per Class B non-voting share and a dividend of $0.1125 per Class A voting share, payable to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 15, 2017, to be paid on September 29, 2017."

2017 Reporting Changes

Reporting Segment Update: Subsequent to the acquisition of Innovia on February 28, 2017, CCLInd modified its Segment reporting disclosure. The Label Segment, or CCL Label, was renamed the CCL Segment or CCL, and now includes the results of the former Innovia Security operations. The new Innovia Segment includes the results of the Innovia films operations as well as the legacy films business, which was previously included in the CCL Segment. Furthermore, on June 5, 2017, the Company affected a 5:1 stock split on its Class A and Class B common shares. Unless otherwise noted, impacted amounts and share information included in this press release have been retroactively adjusted for the stock split as if such stock split occurred on the first day of the first period presented. Certain amounts in this press release may be slightly different than previously reported due to rounding of fractional shares as a result of the stock split.

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 is defined as operating income over sales.

(2) 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. 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 finished goods inventory, earnings in equity accounted investments and restructuring and other items. Calculations are provided below to reconcile operating income to EBITDA. The Company believes that this is an important measure as it allows management to assess CCLInd's 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 CCLInd's ability to incur or service debt and to invest in property, plant and equipment, and it allows management to compare CCLInd's business to those of CCLInd's peers and competitors who may have different capital or organizational structures. EBITDA is tracked by financial analysts and investors to evaluate financial performance and is a key metric in business valuations. EBITDA is considered an important measure by lenders to the Company and is included in the financial covenants of CCLInd's 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 finished goods inventory, restructuring and other items, and tax adjustments.
