Libbey Inc. (NYSE Amex: LBY) announced today that sales for the third quarter of 2011 were $207.2 million, compared to $200.0 million in the third quarter of 2010, an improvement of 3.6 percent. Libbey reported net income of $7.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to net income of $2.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Excluding special items of $2.1 million of expense in the third quarter of 2011 and $2.4 million of expense in the third quarter of 2010, the Company had net income of $9.2 million (see Table 1) and diluted earnings per share of $0.45 during the third quarter of 2011 (the highest third quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share since the third quarter of 2003), compared to net income of $4.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.23 for the third quarter of 2010. The special items during the third quarter of 2011 included a $2.1 million charge for CEO transition expenses. The special items in the third quarter of 2010 included a write-down of decorating assets at the Company's Shreveport, Louisiana, facility and fees related to the secondary stock offering completed in August 2010, for which no proceeds were received by the Company.

Third Quarter Results

For the quarter-ended September 30, 2011, net sales increased 3.6 percent (1.3 percent excluding currency impact) to $207.2 million, compared to $200.0 million in the year-ago quarter. Sales in the Glass Operations segment were $190.8 million, an increase of 5.9 percent (3.3 percent excluding the impact of currency on sales), compared to $180.2 million in the third quarter of 2010 (see Table 5). Primary contributors to the increased sales were a 47.9 percent increase in sales within our China sales region (40.2 percent excluding currency impact), an 8.0 percent increase in sales within our U.S. and Canadian sales region and a 5.2 percent increase in sales within our European sales region (a 4.0 percent decrease excluding the impact of currency). Sales within our Mexico sales region decreased 2.1 percent (excluding the currency impact, net sales were 5.2 percent lower than the prior year quarter). Sales to U.S. and Canadian retail glassware customers increased a very solid 8.8 percent. Glassware sales to U.S. and Canadian foodservice customers increased 4.8 percent during the third quarter of 2011, as shipments to foodservice customers were strong in August and September. Sales in the Other Operations segment were $16.6 million, compared to $20.0 million in the prior-year quarter. As a result of the sale of substantially all of the assets of our Traex subsidiary in late April 2011, sales of Traex products were lower by $4.2 million versus the prior year, accounting for more than the total $3.4 million decrease in sales for Other Operations. Partially offsetting the lack of sales of Traex products were increased sales to World Tableware customers of 7.2 percent during the quarter and a 2.6 percent increase in sales to Syracuse China customers.

The Company reported income from operations of $18.4 million during the quarter, compared to income from operations of $15.7 million in the year-ago quarter. Income from operations, excluding special items (see Table 1), was $20.4 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared to $18.0 million during the third quarter of 2010. The special items during the third quarter of 2011 included a $2.1 million charge for CEO transition expenses that were primarily non-cash charges related to accelerated vesting of previously issued equity compensation. The special items in the third quarter of 2010 included a write-down of decorating assets at the Company's Shreveport, Louisiana, facility and fees related to the secondary stock offering completed in August 2010, for which no proceeds were received by the Company. The improvement in income from operations was largely driven by the higher sales, a better mix of sales and higher production activity, as the special items were similar in amount in the third quarter of both 2011 and 2010.

Libbey reported earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of $20.6 million, compared to EBIT of $15.7 million in the year-ago quarter. Items that drove the improved EBIT included the higher sales, improved mix of sales and higher production activity discussed above and a translation gain of $1.7 million primarily as a result of fluctuations in the Mexican peso. EBIT, excluding special items (see Table 1), was $22.7 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared to $18.0 million during the third quarter of 2010. An increase of $2.3 million in other income (excluding special items) was primarily the translation impact of Libbey Mexico's net peso-denominated liability position. Segment EBIT (see Table 5) was $29.8 million for Glass Operations, compared to segment EBIT of $24.9 million in the year-ago quarter. Other Operations reported segment EBIT for the third quarter of 2011 of $3.0 million, compared to $2.8 million in the year-ago quarter.

Libbey reported that Adjusted EBITDA (see Table 3) was $33.1 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared to $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2010. The third quarter of 2010 included EBITDA related to Traex of $1.0 million.

Interest expense decreased by $1.3 million to $10.6 million, compared to $11.9 million in the year-ago period, primarily as a result of the impact of the $40.0 million debt repayment completed in March 2011.

The effective tax rate decreased to 29.1 percent for the quarter-ended September 30, 2011, compared to 38.6 percent for the quarter-ended September 30, 2010. The effective tax rate was influenced by jurisdictions with recorded valuation allowances and changes in the mix of earnings with differing statutory rates.

Libbey reported net income of $7.1 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to net income of $2.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the prior-year quarter. Excluding special items of $2.1 million of expense in the third quarter of 2011 and $2.4 million of expense in the third quarter of 2010, Libbey had net income of $9.2 million (see Table 1) and diluted earnings per share of $0.45 during the third quarter of 2011, compared to net income of $4.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.23 for the third quarter of 2010. The special items during the third quarter of 2011 included a $2.1 million charge for CEO transition expenses that were primarily non-cash charges related to accelerated vesting of previously issued equity compensation. The special items in the third quarter of 2010 included a write-down of decorating assets at the Company's Shreveport, Louisiana, facility and fees related to the secondary stock offering completed in August 2010, for which no proceeds were received by the Company.

Nine-Month Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, sales increased 4.4 percent to $602.3 million, compared to $576.9 million in the first nine months of 2010. Excluding the impact of currency, sales increased 2.2 percent. Sales in the Glass Operations segment were $547.4 million, an increase of 6.0 percent (3.6 percent excluding the impact of currency on sales), compared to $516.2 million in the first nine months of 2010 (see Table 5). Primary contributors to the increased sales were a 60.5 percent increase in sales within our China sales region (53.2 percent excluding currency impact), an 11.0 percent increase in sales within our European sales region (3.4 percent excluding the impact of currency), and an 11.2 percent increase in sales within our International sales region, compared to the prior-year first nine months. Sales within our Mexico region were essentially flat (excluding the currency impact, sales decreased 4.9 percent). Sales to U.S. and Canadian foodservice glassware customers increased 2.2 percent. Sales to U.S. and Canadian retail customers increased 3.8 percent during the first nine months of 2011, compared to the first nine months of 2010. Sales to U.S. and Canadian business-to-business customers increased 9.3 percent during the first nine months of 2011, compared to the first nine months of 2010. Sales in the Other Operations segment were $55.4 million, compared to $61.2 million in the prior-year, reflecting the late April 2011 disposition of substantially all of the assets of Traex. Sales of Syracuse China products increased 4.5 percent and sales to World Tableware customers increased 3.1 percent. Sales of Traex products were lower by $7.5 million versus the prior year, as the result of the sale of substantially all of the assets of Traex in late April, and accounted for more than the total $5.8 million decrease in sales for Other Operations.

The Company reported income from operations of $53.8 million during the first nine months of 2011, compared to income from operations of $49.6 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted income from operations was $55.4 million for the first nine months of 2011, compared to $54.1 million in 2010 (see Table 2). Factors contributing to the increase in adjusted income from operations were higher sales, an improved mix of sales and lower natural gas costs, which were partially offset by the impact of lower capacity utilization at Libbey Mexico and increased selling, general and administrative expenses.

EBIT was $59.3 million in the first nine months of 2011, compared to $107.3 million in the first nine months of 2010. Adjusted EBIT for the first nine months of 2011, as detailed in Table 2, was $56.8 million, compared to Adjusted EBIT of $55.2 million in the first nine months of 2010. Segment EBIT for the Glass Operations segment was $77.2 million during the first nine months of 2011, compared to segment EBIT of $71.5 million in the first nine months of 2010. The increase is primarily the result of increased sales. The Other Operations segment reported EBIT for the first nine months of 2011 of $9.6 million, compared to $11.0 million in the year-ago period, with the decrease being the result of slightly higher costs and the sale of substantially all of the assets of Traex in April 2011.

The special items in the first nine months of 2010 included a gain of $70.2 million, which represented the difference between the carrying value and the face value of the Payment in Kind (PIK) notes that were redeemed in February 2010. This gain was partially offset by the write-off of $13.4 million of unamortized fees and discounts on the refinanced floating rate senior notes and Asset Backed Loan (ABL) credit facility and call premium payments.

Libbey reported that Adjusted EBITDA, as detailed in Table 3, was $89.1 million in the first nine months of 2011, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $86.2 million in the year-ago nine-month period.

Interest expense decreased by $0.3 million in the first nine months of 2011 to $32.9 million, compared to $33.2 million in the year-ago period. The decrease in interest expense was primarily attributable to the lower debt levels in 2011 which were partially offset by the fact that a portion of the Company's debt carried a low effective interest rate in January 2010, prior to the debt refinancing completed in February 2010.

The effective tax rate was 18.3 percent for the first nine months of 2011, compared to 9.1 percent for the first nine months of 2010. The effective tax rate was influenced by valuation allowances and changes in the mix of earnings with differing statutory rates.

Libbey reported net income of $21.5 million for the first nine months of 2011, or $1.04 per diluted share, compared to net income of $67.3 million, or $3.26 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2010. Excluding special items of $2.5 million, Libbey had net income of $19.1 million (see Table 2) and diluted earnings per share of $0.92 for the first nine months of 2011, compared to net income of $15.2 million, or diluted earnings per share of $0.73 in the first nine months of 2010. The significant special items in the first nine months of 2011 included the $3.2 million gain on the sale of substantially all of the assets of Traex and a $3.4 million gain on the sale of land at Royal Leerdam, which were partially offset by $2.5 million in mostly non-cash CEO transition expenses and $2.8 million in expenses related to the redemption in March 2011 of $40.0 million of senior notes. The special items in the first nine months of 2010 included a gain of $70.2 million, which represented the difference between the carrying value and the face value of the New PIK notes that were redeemed in February 2010. This gain was partially offset by the write-off of $13.4 million of unamortized fees and discounts on the refinanced floating rate senior notes and ABL credit facility and call premium payments. Also included was a write-down of certain after-processing equipment within the Company's Glass Operations segment.

Working Capital and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2011, working capital, defined as inventories and accounts receivable less accounts payable, was $212.3 million, compared to $214.5 million at September 30, 2010. Working capital as a percentage of the last twelve months' net sales was 25.7 percent at September 30, 2011, compared to 27.3 percent at September 30, 2010.

Free cash flow, as detailed in the attached Table 4, was a use of $12.5 million for the third quarter of 2011, compared to a use of $10.5 million in the third quarter of 2010. Free cash flow was a use of $6.0 million in the first nine months of 2011, compared to a use of $0.6 million in the first nine months of 2010, after adjusting for the payment of interest on the New PIK notes.

Libbey reported that it had available capacity of $85.0 million under its ABL credit facility as of September 30, 2011, with no loans currently outstanding. The Company also had cash on hand of $24.6 million at September 30, 2011, after reducing total borrowings by $7.1 million during the third quarter.

Solid Improvement in Glass Operations Segment Sales and Adjusted EBITDA

Stephanie A. Streeter, chief executive officer, said, "We were pleased with the overall sales improvements we saw, especially in China in the Glass Operations segment in the third quarter. We were also encouraged by the improved performance of the U.S. and Canadian retail and foodservice channels of distribution. We are especially proud of our adjusted EBITDA results of $33.1 million; a $5.0 million improvement over the third quarter of 2010, and our working capital reductions over the past twelve months. These improvements signal we continue to make progress towards our goal of improving our profitability and cash flow so that we can better align our capital structure over time."

In accordance with the SEC's Regulation G, tables 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 provide non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release and a reconciliation to the most closely related Generally Accepted Accounting Principle (GAAP) measure. Libbey believes that providing supplemental non-GAAP financial information is useful to investors in understanding Libbey's core business and trends. In addition, it is the basis on which Libbey's management assesses performance. Although Libbey believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented enhance investors' understanding of Libbey's business and performance, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP.
