Intertape Polymer Group Reports Fourth Quarter 2010 and Annual Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and BRADENTON, FLORIDA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - Intertape Polymer Group Inc. (TSX:ITP) ("Intertape" or the "Company") today released results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2010. All dollar amounts are US denominated unless otherwise indicated.

Highlights:

  • Sales for the quarter increased 12.0% to $180.1 million year-over-year

  • Sales for 2010 increased 17.1% to $720.5 million

  • Fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA increased sequentially over the third quarter of 2010 to $11.7 million

  • For the quarter, cash flow from operations before changes in working capital was $6.6 million

  • Closure of Brantford facility with expected positive EBITDA impact of approximately $4 million per annum (see separate press release issued today for more details)

  • As of December 31, 2010, cash and unused availability under the Asset Based Loan ("ABL") was $43.0 million

"Fourth quarter results were in line with expectations; however, gross margin remained under pressure due to significant raw material cost increases and competitive pricing pressures. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to higher selling prices which partially recovered raw material cost increases," said Intertape's President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Yull.

"During 2010, we continued to implement manufacturing cost reduction programs totaling approximately $15 million as compared to approximately $12 million in 2009. These programs included productivity improvements, waste reduction and energy conservation and are critical to offset the impact of rising input costs and are expected to contribute to future gross margin improvements. In 2011, ongoing programs are expected to total $15 to $18 million.

The prolonged strike in Brantford, Ontario has resulted in this operation being unprofitable; therefore a decision has been made to close this facility by June 2011. We expect a positive contribution to EBITDA of approximately $4 million on an annualized basis once this facility is closed. 

"We have in place a concerted sales and marketing effort to focus on higher margin products which include recently launched products and a portfolio of existing products. The growing contribution of these higher margin products over time is an important component of our strategy to return to our target gross margin range. The Company will continue to take the actions necessary to improve profitability as the pricing environment permits and by continuing to reduce manufacturing costs," stated Mr. Yull.

Fourth quarter sales increased 12.0% to $180.1 million, compared to $160.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 and were down 3.7% sequentially from $187.1 million for the third quarter of 2010. On a year-over-year basis, fourth quarter sales for the Tapes & Films ("T&F") Division increased by 10.5% to $149.5 million while sales for the Engineered Coated Products ("ECP") Division increased by 20.0% to $30.6 million. Sales volume increased by approximately 1% over the fourth quarter of 2009 and selling prices for the same period increased by 11%. For the year 2010, sales were $720.5 million, representing an increase of 17.1% compared to $615.5 million for 2009.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter totalled $19.0 million, compared to $20.2 million a year ago, reflecting a $1.5 million increase in the T&F Division and a $2.6 million decrease in the ECP Division.

Fourth quarter gross margin was 10.6% compared to 12.5% for the prior year and 10.5% for the third quarter of 2010. Gross profit for the most recent period was impacted by an asset impairment charge of $3.9 million in connection with the Company's lumber film automatic wrapping machines and related assets.

Selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $18.6 million, $1.4 million lower than the $20.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 and $1.5 million higher than the third quarter of 2010. The decrease from the fourth quarter of 2009 to the fourth quarter of 2010 was primarily due to the non-recurrence of adjustments made in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase in SG&A from the third quarter of 2010 to the fourth quarter of 2010 was due to increased merchandising costs in the consumer channel and higher selling expenses related to annual incentive plans.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $11.7 million compared to $7.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 and $10.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2010 when compared to 2009 reflects primarily higher sales. Adjusted EBITDA for the year 2010 was $40.7 million compared to $43.1 million in 2009.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $43.4 million or $0.74 per fully diluted share compared to net loss of $8.5 million or $0.14 per fully diluted share for the same period last year. The increase in the net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was primarily due to non-recurring charges resulting from a change in the valuation of future US tax assets, facility closure costs, and an impairment charge related to the Company's lumber film automatic wrapping machines and related assets amounting to $31.9 million, $8.1 million and $3.9 million, respectively. For full year 2010, the Company posted a net loss of $56.4 million as compared to a net loss of $14.4 million in 2009.

The Company generated cash flows from operating activities before changes in working capital items for the fourth quarter of $6.6 million compared to $3.5 million in the fourth quarter last year. The increase was due to the increase in profitability before adjustments related to non-cash items.

Cash flows from operating activities decreased in the fourth quarter by $19.1 million to $5.4 million from $24.5 million in the fourth quarter a year ago. An increase in cash flows from operations before changes in working capital items of $3.1 million was offset by an increase in cash used for working capital of $22.3 million. The increase in cash used for working capital was primarily due to accounts payable increasing in the fourth quarter of 2009 as compared to a decrease in the fourth quarter of 2010. This change was mainly due to the timing of payments made by the Company in order to obtain early payment discounts.

Days Inventory improved in the fourth quarter of 2010 by 1 day to 52 days as compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. Day Sales Outstanding increased in the fourth quarter of 2010 by 2 days to 44 days as compared to the fourth quarter of 2009 primarily due to an increase in the mix of sales through the consumer channel.

The amount of borrowings under the Company's ABL, excluding outstanding letters of credit, increased by $2.6 million from $85.4 million as of December 31, 2009 to $88.0 million as of December 31, 2010. As of December 31, 2010, the Company had cash and unused availability under its ABL totalling $43.0 million, the amount of which would have been $56.2 million if the Company had not been required to post a bond of $13.2 million related to the Inspired Technologies Inc. ("ITI") litigation discussed below. Due to a reduced verdict, subsequent to December 31, 2010, the bond related to the ITI litigation was replaced with a bond in the amount of $1.0 million. As of March 21, 2011 cash and unused availability under the ABL exceeded $44 million, the amount of which would have exceeded $45 million if the Company had not been required to post a bond of $1.0 million related to the ITI litigation. The variation in cash and unused availability under the ABL between December 31, 2010 and March 21, 2011 reflects a reduced bond offset by increases in early payments to suppliers in order to obtain discounts. 

As indicated in a press release issued on February 14, 2011, the Company announced that damages awarded to ITI have again been significantly reduced. The initial jury award in September 2010 against the Company's subsidiary, Intertape Polymer Corp., was for $13.2 million. In December 2010, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida granted Intertape's post trial motion to reduce the amount, and it was lowered from the previous $13.2 million to $3.0 million. ITI then requested a new trial and in a verdict rendered on February 11, 2011, the jury award was further decreased to $0.7 million.

As a result of the Company's structural, operational, management and reporting realignments during the third quarter of 2010, the Company is no longer required to present operating results at a divisional level. However, in the interest of reporting consistency, the divisional results discussion is included hereinafter.

T&F Division

Sales for the T&F Division for the fourth quarter totalled $149.5 million, representing a 10.5% increase compared to $135.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2009 and a 2.2% decrease in sales compared to $152.9 million for the third quarter of 2010. Sales for the fourth quarter of 2010 decreased from the third quarter due to historical seasonality and fewer business days. The sales increase in the fourth quarter of 2010 was due in part to a sales volume increase of approximately 2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2009, but was largely attributable to the approximately 9% increase in selling prices. The increase in sales volume was across most product lines.

Fourth quarter gross profit for the T&F Division totalled $20.3 million at a gross margin of 13.6% compared to $18.8 million at a gross margin of 13.9% for the fourth quarter of last year. On a sequential basis, gross profit increased by $2.9 million over the third quarter of 2010 due to price increases that partially offset the prior increases in costs of resin-based, adhesive and paper raw material costs.

T&F Division's EBITDA was $11.1 million for the fourth quarter compared to $9.4 million for the comparable period a year ago and $10.8 million for the third quarter of 2010. The year-over-year fourth quarter increase in EBITDA was due to higher sales.

ECP Division

Sales for the ECP Division for the fourth quarter were $30.6 million, representing a 20.0% increase when compared to $25.5 million for the fourth quarter a year ago and a 10.3% decrease when compared to sales of $34.1 million for the third quarter of 2010. Sales volume decreased in the fourth quarter of 2010 by approximately 3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2009 while selling prices increased by 23% for the same period. Higher costs for resin-based raw materials were the primary reason for the selling price increases. 

Gross profits for the ECP Division for the fourth quarter totalled negative $1.2 million at a gross margin of negative 4.0%, compared to $1.4 million at a gross margin of 5.5% for the fourth quarter of 2009. The decrease in both gross profit and gross margin for 2010 was related to an asset impairment charge of $3.9 million related to the lumber film automatic wrapping machines and related assets, which was partially offset by higher sales and gross margin excluding the impairment charges. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.0 million compared to negative $0.8 million for the same period last year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to the fourth quarter of 2009 was due to higher gross profit, excluding charges related to the impairment of assets.

Outlook

"Price increases were recently announced for industrial customers by most industry participants. Considering the upward fluctuations of some raw material prices in recent months, further increases will be required," said Mr. Yull.

"In 2010, we launched 44 new products compared with 25 in 2009. In 2011, we anticipate launching over 30 new products into new and existing markets. Our gross margin is expected to progressively benefit as these new product introductions expand our portfolio of higher gross margin products which are expected to represent a larger percentage of product mix. 

"In addition to our manufacturing cost reduction plans, greater leverage is expected to be realized on fixed costs as we more fully utilize our existing capacity. The closure of the Brantford, Ontario facility is expected to result in an annualized increase in EBITDA of about $4 million, even though it is expected to negatively impact annualized sales by about $10 million. These factors plus improvement in the spread between raw material costs and selling prices are expected to contribute to increased gross margin in 2011. This anticipated gross margin expansion combined with sales growth is expected to generate cash flows from operations sufficient to reduce debt during 2011. We maintain our longer-term target gross margin of 18% to 19%. For the first quarter of 2011, we expect slightly higher sequential sales over the fourth quarter of 2010 and higher Adjusted EBITDA," concluded Mr. Yull.

Non-GAAP Information

A reconciliation of the Company's EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to GAAP net earnings (loss) is set out in the EBITDA reconciliation table below. EBITDA should not be construed as earnings (loss) before income taxes, net earnings (loss) or cash from operating activities as determined by GAAP. The Company defines EBITDA as net earnings (loss) before (i) income taxes (recovery); (ii) financial expenses, net of amortization (including foreign exchange gain (loss)); (iii) refinancing expense, net of amortization; (iv) amortization of debt issue expenses; (v) amortization of intangibles assets and deferred charges; and (vi) depreciation of property, plant and equipment. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before (i) manufacturing facility closures, restructuring, strategic alternatives and other charges; (ii) impairment of goodwill; (iii) impairment of long-lived assets and other assets; (iv) unprecedented gross margin compression; and (v) write-down on classification as assets held-for-sale. The terms "EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA" do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by GAAP in Canada or in the United States and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities or as alternatives to net earnings (loss) as indicators of the Company's operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company has included these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that it permits investors to make a more meaningful comparison of the Company's performance between periods presented. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management and the Company's lenders in evaluating the Company's performance.
