“We are pleased with O-I’s third quarter business performance. Once again, we delivered on our commitments as performance exceeded the company’s guidance range, despite a number of macro challenges. Demand for glass containers remains strong, yet shipments were down slightly due to choppy demand patterns, mix management and ongoing supply chain disruptions. On the other hand, higher average selling prices fully offset escalating cost inflation, and earnings benefited from continued solid operating and cost performance supported by the company’s Margin Expansion initiatives. Cash From Operating Activities and Free Cash Flow1 were also strong reflecting solid earnings and debt was the lowest level since 2015,” said Andres Lopez, CEO.

 

“We continue to advance O-I’s strategy and have made very good progress on our 2021 priorities. With $50 million of benefits year-to-date, our Margin Expansion initiatives have already achieved the company’s full year target. O-I is redefining glass production with our new MAGMA solution. We have successfully commercialized the Generation 1 MAGMA line at Holzminden, Germany, and our Generation 2 pilot is proceeding well. As we seek to rebalance the packaging dialogue, our glass advocacy digital marketing campaign has connected with over 99 million consumers across North America, and we issued our 2021 sustainability report in August that showcases how we are advancing our ESG position. As part of our ongoing portfolio optimization program, we recently announced our intent to sell our Le Parfait brand and business in France at an attractive valuation that also includes a long-term strategic supply agreement. The combination of rebalancing O-I’s business portfolio and addressing legacy asbestos and pension liabilities will significantly improve the company’s financial flexibility. All of these actions are consistent with our strategy to increase stakeholder value. We are pleased with our momentum and we are increasing our full-year 2021 outlook.”

 

 

 

1 Adjusted earnings per share, free cash flow, segment operating profit, and net debt are each non-GAAP financial measures. See tables included in this release for reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

“During our Investor Day presentation in September, we laid out our bold plan to accelerate O-I’s transformation. The combination of favorable market conditions for glass containers, O-I’s ongoing transformation and the introduction of MAGMA is building the path to “Yes.” Yes, to an agile and resilient company. Yes, to a new paradigm for glass. And, yes to profitable growth. We are confident this plan will enhance value for all stakeholders and ensure sustainable prosperity for O-I,” concluded Lopez.

 

Third Quarter 2021 Results:

 

·Reported Results: For the third quarter 2021, the company recorded earnings from continuing operations of $0.48 per share (diluted) compared to earnings from continuing operations of $2.06 per share (diluted) in the prior year period. The current year earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $127 million, compared to $376 million in the third quarter of 2020 which included an approximately $280 million net gain on the sale of O-I’s ANZ business unit.

 

·Adjusted Earnings1: Excluding certain items management considers not representative of ongoing operations, third quarter 2021 adjusted earnings1 were $0.58 per share compared with the prior year of $0.41 per share. Higher adjusted earnings were primarily the result of improved production volumes as well as strong operating and cost performance. Actual results exceeded management’s earnings guidance of $0.47 to $0.52.

 

·Segment Operating Profit1: Third quarter 2021 segment operating profit was $243 million compared to $204 million in the prior year period. While demand for glass containers remains strong, sales volumes (excluding divestitures) declined approximately 1 percent from the prior year. Higher segment operating profit was largely due to higher production levels, as well as strong operating performance and the benefits from the company’s margin expansion initiatives.

 

·Cash Flows: Cash provided by continuing operating activities was $306 million in the third quarter 2021, compared to $262 million in the prior year period. Third quarter 2021 free cash flow1 was $213 million compared to $205 million in 2020.

 

·Capital Structure: Total debt was $4.9 billion on September 30, 2021, compared to $5.4 billion on September 30, 2020. Net debt1 was $4.3 billion on September 30, 2021, which was down nearly $500 million from the prior year. Committed liquidity remained strong and approximated $2.1 billion on September 30, 2021.

 

Net sales approximated $1.6 billion in the third quarter of 2021, which was down slightly compared to the prior year period due to recent divestitures that reduced revenue by $59 million. Higher average selling prices contributed $57 million to net sales. Adjusted for divestitures, shipments in tons decreased 1 percent which impacted revenues $16 million. Net sales benefited $15 million from favorable foreign currency translation, while revenue from technical services declined $4 million reflecting lower engineering project activity.

The change in segment operating profit from the third quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year resulted from the following:

 

·Americas: Segment operating profit in the Americas was $133 million compared to $113 million in the third quarter of 2020. The benefit of higher selling prices more than offset cost inflation. Excluding divestitures, shipments in tons declined 3 percent reflecting choppy demand patterns, mix management from lower margin categories given tight inventory conditions and ongoing supply chain challenges. Favorable operating performance reflected a 9 percent increase in production volume and the benefit of the company’s Margin Expansion initiatives.

 

·Europe: Segment operating profit in Europe was $110 million compared to $88 million in the third quarter 2020. Shipments in tons improved 2 percent with strong improvement in the wine category while the benefit of higher selling prices partially offset cost inflation. Like the Americas, operating costs were favorable reflecting 8 percent higher production volume as well as benefits from the company’s Margin Expansion initiatives. Additionally, results were negatively impacted $1 million by unfavorable foreign currency translation.

 

·Asia Pacific2: Segment operating profit in Asia Pacific was $0 compared to $3 million in the third quarter 2020 following the sale of the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) business unit in July 2020.

 

Retained corporate and other costs were $49 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $35 million in the prior year quarter. Higher costs primarily reflected additional R&D investment in MAGMA, marketing expense for the company’s glass advocacy campaign and management incentives.

 

In both the third quarter of 2021 and 2020, the company recorded several significant items impacting reported results as presented in the table entitled Reconciliation to Adjusted Earnings. Management considers these items not representative of ongoing operations, and they are excluded from adjusted earnings. In the third quarter of 2021, these items included $12 million for restructuring and other charges and $5 million in pension settlement charges. In the third quarter of 2020, these items included approximately $280 million for the gain on the sale of the ANZ business, $9 million for restructuring, asset impairment and other costs, $6 million for debt refinancing expense and $3 million in strategic transaction costs.

 

Business Outlook

 

The company now expects full year 2021 adjusted earnings will approximate $1.77 to $1.82 per share which is an increase from prior guidance of $1.70 to $1.75 per share. The company anticipates cash provided by operating activities will be at least $660 million, and O-I should generate at least $260 million in free cash flow.

 

Currently, O-I expects fourth quarter 2021 adjusted earnings will approximate $0.30 to $0.35 per share and assumes sales volume will be consistent with prior year levels amid ongoing supply chain challenges. Higher selling prices should partially offset elevated cost inflation pending further price recovery starting early in 2022. Adjusted earnings are expected to reflect continued solid operating performance including savings from the company’s ongoing Margin Expansion initiatives.

 

Given significant market uncertainty due to the global pandemic, the company’s business outlook is subject to adjustment, especially if there is a material change in demand trends compared to expectations. This outlook assumes foreign currency rates as of October 22, 2021 and an annual adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 30 to 32 percent.

 

 

 

2 Results of the Asia Pacific segment have been recast to reflect only the earnings of the ANZ businesses following the sale of the business unit in July 2020. The sales and operating results of the other businesses that historically comprised the Asia Pacific segment and were retained by the company, have been reclassified to Other sales and Retained corporate costs and other, respectively.

Announced Binding Commitment from a Subsidiary of Berlin Packaging L.L.C. to Buy O-I’s Le Parfait Brand and Business

 

Additionally, O-I today announced it has received a binding commitment from a subsidiary of Berlin Packaging L.L.C, a global packaging supplier, to acquire O-I’s Le Parfait brand and business. Le Parfait is a world-renowned French jar brand sold in more than 20 countries.

 

The proposed sale would generate gross proceeds of approximately €72 million and is part of O-I’s portfolio optimization program. Under this program, proceeds would be redeployed to help fund attractive expansion initiatives such as the company’s revolutionary MAGMA solution and improve ROIC. O-I contemplates closing around year end, subject to the works council consultation and other customary closing conditions. The proposed transaction would also include a long-term supply arrangement to manufacture Le Parfait jars from O-I’s plants in Puy-Guillaume, France, and Sevilla, Spain.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

The company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are measures of its historical or future financial performance that are not calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, within the meaning of applicable SEC rules. Management believes that its presentation and use of certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, free cash flow, segment operating profit, and net debt provide relevant and useful supplemental financial information that is widely used by analysts and investors, as well as by management in assessing both consolidated and business unit performance. These non-GAAP measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and should be considered supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or be construed as being more important than comparable GAAP measures.

 

Adjusted earnings relates to net earnings from continuing operations attributable to the company, exclusive of items management considers not representative of ongoing operations because such items are not reflective of the company’s principal business activity, which is glass container production. Adjusted earnings are divided by weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) to derive adjusted earnings per share. Segment operating profit relates to earnings from continuing operations before interest expense, net, and before income taxes and is also exclusive of items management considers not representative of ongoing operations as well as certain retained corporate costs. Management uses adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, and segment operating profit to evaluate its period-over-period operating performance because it believes these provide useful supplemental measures of the results of operations of its principal business activity by excluding items that are not reflective of such operations. Adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share and segment operating profit may be useful to investors in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the company’s business as these measures eliminate items that are not reflective of its principal business activity.

 

Net debt is defined as total debt less cash. Management uses net debt to analyze the liquidity of the company.

 

Further, free cash flow relates to cash provided by continuing operating activities less cash payments for property, plant and equipment. Management has historically used free cash flow to evaluate its period-over-period cash generation performance because it believes this has provided a useful supplemental measure related to its principal business activity. It should not be inferred that the entire free cash flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures, since the company has mandatory debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. Management uses non-GAAP information principally for internal reporting, forecasting, budgeting and calculating compensation payments.

 

The company routinely posts important information on its website – www.o-i.com/investors.

(a) Segment operating profit consists of consolidated earnings before interest income, interest expense, and provision for income taxes and excludes amounts related to certain items that management considers not representative of ongoing operations as well as certain retained corporate costs.  
   
  The Company presents information on segment operating profit because management believes that it provides investors with a measure of operating performance separate from the level of indebtedness or other related costs of capital.  The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to segment operating profit is earnings from continuing operations before income taxes.  The Company presents segment operating profit because management uses the measure, in combination with net sales and selected cash flow information, to evaluate performance and to allocate resources.  
   
(b) Reference Reconciliation to Adjusted Earnings.
   
(c) Segment operating profit margin is segment operating profit divided by segment net sales.

Reconciliation to Adjusted Effective Tax Rate

 

The Company is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of its forward-looking non-GAAP measure, adjusted effective tax rate, for the year ending December 31, 2021, to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, provision for income taxes divided by earnings (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes, because management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of these GAAP financial measures without unreasonable efforts. Earnings (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes includes several significant items, such as restructuring charges, asset impairment charges, charges for the write-off of finance fees, and the provision for income taxes would include the income tax effect on such items. The decisions and events that typically lead to the recognition of these and other similar items are complex and inherently unpredictable, and the amount recognized for each item can vary significantly. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of adjusted effective tax rate to earnings (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes divided by provision for income taxes or address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to the Company's future financial results.
