Commenting on the quarter, Stephan Tanda, President and CEO, said, "We are pleased to report core sales growth after a challenging second half of 2016. The diversity of our business continues to be a key strength. Our Pharma segment had an excellent quarter with growth across all three of its markets. The destocking effect that we saw at the end of 2016 appears to be over and we saw more normalized order levels in the prescription market and strong demand in the consumer health care market for decongestants and ophthalmics. We also achieved core sales growth in our Beauty + Home segment and were able to offset continuing challenges in the U.S. market with growth in the other regions. Our Beauty + Home and Food + Beverage segments were negatively affected by rising raw material costs, and our Food + Beverage segment was further impacted by lower sales volumes in the Chinese beverage market."

Aptar reported earnings per share of $0.81 compared to $0.67 per share a year ago. Comparable adjusted earnings per share for the first quarter of 2016 totaled $0.74 per share.

Continued Investment in Connected Electronic Drug Delivery Devices

In the quarter, Aptar received an order for the first integrated electronic nasal lockout device (Aptar’s eLockout) approved by the EMA following a multi-year development with Takeda Pharmaceuticals International AG. This represents a major milestone, with the eLockout device being the first and only fully integrated electronic nasal drug delivery device to be approved by a European regulatory authority. The Aptar eLockout device uses advanced electronic technology that facilitates safe patient compliance by limiting the number of doses available during a 24 hour period and features a child-resistant cap.

In addition, Aptar signed an agreement to acquire a 20% minority ownership position in Kali Care, a Silicon Valley-based technology company, which provides digital-monitoring systems for ophthalmic medications. Kali Care’s sensing technology allows clinicians to collect real time compliance data. For example, the ability to see the medication-adherence score of patients with glaucoma is a powerful tool for ophthalmologists in managing the care of their patients. Aptar’s leading dispensing technologies combined with Kali Care’s smart sensors, data analytics and cloud services has the potential to become a valuable solution for clinicians. In 2016, we announced our partnership with Propeller Health, a leading digital platform for respiratory health management, to develop a fully-integrated connected metered dose inhaler (cMDI) that combines electronic sensing, dose counting and wireless communicating capabilities.

Commenting on the strategy, Tanda explained, "This is an important step in our journey to leverage our leading drug delivery technologies to develop the next generation of connected electronic devices. These strategic collaborations underline Aptar’s commitment to breaking new ground with health care innovations."

Outlook

Commenting on Aptar’s outlook, Tanda said, "Looking to the second quarter, we currently expect growth in our Pharma and Food + Beverage segments. Our Beauty + Home segment may be impacted by uncertainties, including the pace of economic growth in the U.S. and Brazil. I am optimistic that we will continue to grow each of our business segments over the long-term by executing on customer projects and developing new business. I am also excited to continue to meet with our customers and visit our facilities as we focus on key areas such as innovation, sales, marketing and business development and pursue further growth opportunities."

Aptar expects earnings per share for the second quarter to be in the range of $0.92 to $0.97 compared to $0.91 per share reported in the prior year. Our guidance range is based on an effective tax rate range of 26.5% to 27.5% which includes an estimate of a potential tax benefit from our adoption of the new accounting standard for share-based compensation. Adjusting for changes in foreign currency exchange rates, comparable adjusted earnings per share for the prior year were approximately $0.87.

Cash Dividend

As previously reported, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.32 per share. The payment date is May 24, 2017, to stockholders of record as of May 3, 2017.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Information

This press release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures, including prior year 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.

Non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies.

(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 March 31, 2017.
 
(2) AptarGroup’s expected earnings per share range for the
second quarter of 2017 is based on an effective tax rate range
of 26.5% to 27.5% which includes an estimate of a potential impact
from our adoption of the new accounting standard for share-based
compensation.
