Commenting on the quarter, Stephen Hagge said, "Our Beauty + Home segment continued to be affected by challenging conditions across each of the markets served. Our Pharma segment had another good quarter with solid growth in sales to the consumer health care and injectables markets being partially offset by weaker demand from the prescription drug market where we experienced year-end destocking among certain customers. Our Food + Beverage segment reported excellent growth, in part due to higher demand from the Asian beverage market. Despite some of the challenges we faced, we expanded margins in two of our three segments over the prior year, achieved an operating income margin of approximately 12% and an EBITDA margin of 20% and reported record earnings per share."

AptarGroup reported earnings per share of $0.77 compared to $0.68 a year ago. Comparable adjusted earnings per share grew 6% to $0.69 compared to $0.65 a year ago.

Annual Results

For the year ended December 31, 2016, reported sales increased 1% to $2.33 billion from $2.32 billion a year ago. Excluding the negative impact from changes in currency exchange rates and the positive impact from acquisitions, core sales were even with the prior year.

Hagge commented on the year-to-date results, "It was a difficult year to deliver growth in our Beauty + Home segment due to weak market conditions. We had excellent performance from the acquired Mega Airless business that will continue to play an important part of this segment’s growth and we deployed new technologies that have much potential. Our Pharma segment had another excellent year, reporting growth across each market. Our Food + Beverage segment performed well despite facing challenging demand in the Asian beverage market. All things considered, we did an excellent job of maintaining or growing adjusted EBITDA margins across our business segments, achieving a consolidated operating income margin of 13% and adjusted EBITDA margin of 20% and reporting record annual earnings per share."

For the year 2016, AptarGroup reported earnings per share of $3.17 compared to $3.09 a year ago. Comparable adjusted earnings per share grew 5% to $3.13 compared to $2.97 for 2015.

Outlook

Commenting on AptarGroup’s outlook, Stephan Tanda said, "As I look to 2017, I am excited by the opportunities to develop new business, execute on customer projects and focus on growth. Similar to many companies, we will face some degree of uncertainty as various political environments shift and settle, but we will remain focused on our customers and end consumers in order to drive new technologies to market. I am particularly encouraged by the opportunities we see to further penetrate and grow in relatively newer categories such as color cosmetics, sampling and promotion, facial skin care, pain management, ophthalmics, dermal treatments and infant nutrition, among others. We will continue to seek new business and invest in profitable growth opportunities, while at the same time manage our cost structure. We have an excellent balance sheet that allows us to pursue our balanced capital allocation strategy."

AptarGroup expects earnings per share for the first quarter, excluding any potential impacts of the timing of costs incurred and any related insurance reimbursements associated with the Aptar Annecy facility fire, to be in the range of $0.72 to $0.77 compared to $0.67 per share reported in the prior year. Our guidance range does not include any potential impact from our anticipated adoption of the new accounting standard for share-based compensation. Adjusting for special items in the prior year, comparable adjusted earnings per share for the prior year were approximately $0.74.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Information

This press release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, which exclude the impact of transaction costs and purchase accounting adjustments that affected inventory values related to the Mega Airless acquisition, certain items included in the provision for income taxes (primarily a significant tax refund that was recorded in the first quarter of 2016 and certain adjustments related to income tax incentives recorded in the fourth quarter of 2016), income from a change in the method of valuing inventory (from LIFO to FIFO) that was recorded in the second quarter of 2015, transaction costs associated with the Mega Airless acquisition and a gain on insurance recovery recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015. Comparable core sales and adjusted earnings per share also exclude the impact of foreign currency translation effects. Non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. AptarGroup’s management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to our investors because they allow for a better period over period comparison of operating results by removing the impact of items that, in management’s view, do not reflect AptarGroup’s core operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also provide investors with certain information used by AptarGroup’s management when making financial and operational decisions. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial results, but should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income and other information presented herein. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying tables.

(1) Foreign currency effects are approximations of the adjustment
necessary to state the prior year earnings per share using foreign
currency exchange rates as of December 31, 2016.
 
(2) AptarGroup’s expected earnings per share range for the first
quarter of 2017 excludes any potential impacts from our anticipated
adoption of the new accounting standard for share-based compensation
and any potential effects of the timing of costs incurred and the
related insurance reimbursements associated with the Aptar Annecy
facility fire, which amounts cannot be reasonably estimated.
