 PolyOne Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Results
   Friday, January 26, 2018 6:48:00 AM ET

PolyOne Corporation (POL ) today reported its fourth quarter and full year results for 2017. GAAP earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2017 of $0.43 compared to $0.42 in the fourth quarter of 2016. Adjusted earnings per share of $0.41 increased from $0.39 in the prior year fourth quarter. Special items for the fourth quarter of 2017, which primarily included tax adjustments associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, resulted in a net after-tax gain of $2.2 million, or $0.02 per share (see Attachment 1). Special items in the prior year quarter, the largest of which were a mark-to-market pension adjustment and restructuring charges, resulted in a net after-tax gain of $2.5 million, or $0.03 per share.

Full year GAAP earnings per share of $2.11 in 2017 compared to $1.96 in 2016. Adjusted earnings per share in 2017 increased to $2.21, a 7% increase from $2.06 in 2016.

"I am pleased to report record adjusted EPS for the 8th consecutive year," said Robert M. Patterson, chairman, president and chief executive officer, PolyOne Corporation. "Over the last three years, we have increased our sales, marketing and R&D resources by nearly 20%. These investments have improved collaboration and service levels for our existing and new customers, leading to accelerated and sustained growth at PolyOne."

Mr. Patterson continued, "In 2017, we delivered the highest level of organic sales expansion since coming out of the recession in 2010, allowing us to overcome substantial raw material inflation and supply chain disruptions resulting from Hurricane Harvey."

"Color, Additives and Inks had an outstanding quarter to end the year, driven by a 5% increase in organic sales and a 24% increase in operating income," stated Mr. Patterson. "Color has tremendous momentum heading into 2018 bolstered by the four bolt-on acquisitions we have completed over the last twelve months, adding to our specialty colorant technology portfolio and geographic presence."

Most recently, the company acquired IQAP Masterbatch (IQAP), a privately owned and innovative provider of specialty colorants and additives based in Spain with customers throughout Europe. PolyOne expects IQAP will add approximately $45 million in revenue and be accretive to earnings in 2018.

Bradley C. Richardson, executive vice president and chief financial officer, PolyOne Corporation, said, "Our strong free cash flow for the year enabled us to fund the acquisitions of SilCoTec, Rutland, Mesa, and IQAP while also returning cash to shareholders. In 2017, we repurchased 2.0 million shares of common stock and announced a significant dividend expansion of 30% this year and a plan for more than 60% cumulatively over the next three years."

Mr. Richardson continued, "With liquidity of nearly $600 million, we have significant financial capacity to continue to pursue strategic acquisitions, invest in innovation and return cash to shareholders via share repurchases and dividends."

Mr. Patterson concluded, "2017 was an important year for our company, as we transformed and repositioned our portfolio for sustainable growth, and delivered record adjusted EPS. I am excited to kick-off 2018 with another highly innovative color and additives acquisition. IQAP is a great addition to the PolyOne family and fits our strategy of acquiring specialty businesses where we can accelerate growth with additional commercial investment."

The company is hosting a conference call at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Management will discuss fourth quarter and full year results, outlook for 2018, as well as the impact of U.S. tax reform legislation.

PolyOne shareholders
Senior management uses comparisons of adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to PolyOne shareholders and diluted adjusted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations attributable to PolyOne shareholders, excluding special items, to assess performance and facilitate comparability of results. Senior management believes these measures are useful to investors because they allow for comparison to PolyOne’s performance in prior periods without the effect of items that, by their nature, tend to obscure PolyOne’s operating results due to the potential variability across periods based on timing, frequency and magnitude. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or solely as alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Below is a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. See Attachment 3 for a definition and summary of special items.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)
(In millions, except per share data)
Senior management uses gross margin before special items and operating income before special items to assess performance and allocate resources because senior management believes that these measures are useful in understanding current profitability levels and how it may serve as a basis for future performance. In addition, operating income before the effect of special items is a component of PolyOne annual and long-term employee incentive plans and is used in debt covenant computations. Senior management believes these measures are useful to investors because they allow for comparison to PolyOne’s performance in prior periods without the effect of items that, by their nature, tend to obscure PolyOne’s operating results due to the potential variability across periods based on timing, frequency and magnitude. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or solely as alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Below is a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. See Attachment 3 for a definition and summary of special items.
