Libbey Inc. Announces Fourth-Quarter And Full-Year 2019 Financial Results And Provides 2020 Annual Outlook

02/25/2020
Full-year net cash provided by operating activities increases $26.6 million driving $40.5 million of incremental Free Cash Flow for the year

TOLEDO, Ohio, Feb. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Libbey Inc. (NYSE American: LBY), one of the world's largest glass tableware manufacturers, today reported results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Fourth-quarter 2019 Financial & Operating Highlights

  • Net sales were $208.9 million, a decrease of 1.3 percent, or a decrease of 1.1 percent in constant currency versus the prior-year period.
  • Net loss was ($17.3) million, compared to net loss of ($4.0) million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2019 was affected by a $18.3 million non-cash impairment of long-lived assets in our EMEA segment.
  • Adjusted Income from Operations (see Table 4) increased 42.8 percent versus the prior year to $11.5 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (see Table 1) increased 17.3 percent and Adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 140 bps versus the prior year to $19.0 million.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities improved $21.5 million, driving Free Cash Flow (see Table 2) to $46.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

"I'm pleased to report Libbey delivered solid fourth-quarter results, as our focus on operating performance and disciplined investment continues to drive improved gross margins and cash flow," said Mike Bauer, chief executive officer of Libbey. "Our teams continue to demonstrate the ability to execute well in a challenging market that was further impacted by a shortened holiday season in Q4 2019. Despite these headwinds we delivered growth in our core USC segment, including meaningful gains in the foodservice channel." 

Bauer continued, "I'm proud of the organization's ability to navigate the challenging environment to deliver results that significantly outpaced last year's fourth quarter and full-year performance. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter grew 17 percent versus the prior year and Free Cash Flow increased $27 million. As we look ahead to 2020, we plan to carry the momentum built in the second half of the year and capture the benefits of not only our strategic realignment and cost savings efforts, but also further leverage our competitive advantages and leading market position to deliver growth and improved performance."

  • Net sales in the U.S. & Canada segment increased 0.8 percent, primarily driven by price realization and product mix sold in the foodservice channel, partially offset by lower volume.
  • In Latin America, net sales decreased 1.0 percent (a decrease of 2.8 percent excluding currency fluctuation) as a result of lower volume in all three channels, partially offset by favorable price and product mix and a favorable currency impact.
  • Net sales in the EMEA segment decreased 9.2 percent (a decrease of 6.6 percent excluding currency fluctuation) driven primarily by lower volume.
  • Net sales in Other decreased 2.9 percent (a decrease of 1.4 percent excluding currency fluctuation) as a result of lower volume and an unfavorable currency impact, partially offset by favorable price and product mix sold.

  • Net sales in the U.S. & Canada segment increased 1.5 percent, primarily driven by price realization and product mix, as well as higher volume, partially offset by unfavorable channel mix.
  • In Latin America, net sales decreased 4.4 percent (a decrease of 4.3 percent excluding currency fluctuation) primarily as a result of lower sales volume. This was partially offset by favorable pricing within the segment.
  • Net sales in the EMEA segment decreased 10.4 percent (a decrease of 5.7 percent excluding currency fluctuation) driven primarily by lower volume and an unfavorable currency impact, partially offset by favorable price and product mix.
  • Net sales in Other decreased 7.1 percent (a decrease of 3.2 percent excluding currency fluctuation) primarily as a result of unfavorable price and mix of product sold, as well as an unfavorable currency impact. 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

  • The Company had remaining available capacity of $68.2 million under its ABL credit facility in addition to cash on hand of $48.9 million at December 31, 2019, resulting in total liquidity of $117.1 million. The Company had $17.4 million in loans outstanding under its ABL credit facility at December 31, 2019.
  • At December 31, 2019, Trade Working Capital (see Table 3), defined as inventories and accounts receivable less accounts payable, was $176.8 million, a decrease of $24.4 million from $201.2 million at December 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily a result of lower inventories, as well as higher accounts payable and lower accounts receivable.

Jim Burmeister, Libbey's chief operating officer and outgoing chief financial officer, commented, "We achieved solid Adjusted EBITDA improvement year-over-year in the fourth quarter despite the drag from our actions to reduce total inventory levels. As a reminder, these actions enabled us to reduce total inventory levels by $17 million in 2019. Our disciplined approach to capital investment, along with our operational performance and discretionary downtime actions drove Free Cash Flow to $46.5 million in the fourth quarter. The year-over-year increase in Free Cash Flow resulted in an improvement in our net debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratio for the year, bringing this measure of leverage down to 4.9 times at December 31, 2019." 

2020 Outlook 

The Company anticipates uncertain, global macroeconomic conditions, as well as a challenging competitive environment, will continue throughout much of 2020. It is too early to discern any long-term impacts the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak may have to consumer demand and supply chains across our global markets. Excluding the potential effects from this issue, the outlook for full-year 2020 includes the following estimates:

  • Net sales flat to an increase of low-single digits;
  • Adjusted EBITDA margins between 9 percent and 10 percent (see table 7);
  • Capital expenditures and ERP capital of approximately $30 million; and
  • Trade Working Capital reduction of approximately $10 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures   

To supplement the condensed financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP), we use non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Income from Operations (Adjusted IFO), Adjusted IFO Margin, Free Cash Flow, Trade Working Capital, Adjusted Selling, General & Administrative Expense (Adjusted SG&A), Adjusted SG&A Margin and our Debt Net of Cash to Adjusted EBITDA Ratio. Reconciliations to the nearest U.S. GAAP measures of all non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables below.

Our non-GAAP measures, as defined below, are used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report similar non-GAAP measures. Libbey believes these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be indicative of core business operating results. We believe the non-GAAP measures, when viewed in conjunction with U.S. GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations, enhance the comparability of results against prior periods and allow for additional transparency of financial results and business outlook. In addition, we use non-GAAP data internally to assess performance and facilitate management's internal comparison of our financial performance to that of prior periods, as well as trend analysis for budgeting and planning purposes. The presentation of our non-GAAP measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Furthermore, our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies and may have limitations as an analytical tool. We define our non-GAAP measures as follows:

  • We define Adjusted EBITDA as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and special items, when applicable, that Libbey believes are not reflective of our core operating performance, and we define Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.
  • We define Adjusted IFO as U.S. GAAP net income (loss) plus interest expense, provision for income taxes, other (income) expense, and special items, when applicable, that Libbey believes are not reflective of our core operating performance, and we define Adjusted IFO Margin as Adjusted IFO divided by net sales.
  • We define Trade Working Capital as net accounts receivable plus net inventories less accounts payable.
  • We define Adjusted SG&A as U.S. GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses less special items that Libbey believes are not reflective of our core operating performance, and we define Adjusted SG&A Margin as Adjusted SG&A divided by net sales.
  • We define Free Cash Flow as the sum of net cash provided by operating activities and net cash used in investing activities. The most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure is net cash provided by (used in) operating activities.
  • We define our Debt Net of Cash to Adjusted EBITDA Ratio as gross debt on the balance sheet plus unamortized discount and finance fees, less cash and cash equivalents, divided by last twelve months Adjusted EBITDA (defined above).

Constant Currency      

We translate revenue and expense accounts in our non-U.S. operations at current average exchange rates during the year. References to "constant currency," "excluding currency impact" and "adjusted for currency" are considered non-GAAP measures. Constant currency references regarding net sales reflect a simple mathematical translation of local currency results using the comparable prior period's currency conversion rate. Constant currency references regarding Gross Profit, Adjusted IFO, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin comprise a simple mathematical translation of local currency results using the comparable prior period's currency conversion rate plus the transactional impact of changes in exchange rates from revenues, expenses and assets and liabilities that are denominated in a currency other than the functional currency. We believe this non-GAAP constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding our core operating results, better identifies operating trends that may otherwise be masked or distorted by exchange rate changes and provides a higher degree of transparency of information used by management in its evaluation of our ongoing operations. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Our currency market risks include currency fluctuations relative to the U.S. dollar, Canadian dollar, Mexican peso, euro and Chinese renminbi.

Caution on Forward-Looking Statements      

This press release includes forward-looking statements as defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such statements reflect only the Company's best assessment at this time and are indicated by words or phrases such as "goal," "plan," "expects," " believes," "will," "estimates," "anticipates," or similar phrases. These forward-looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They include statements regarding the Company's intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among other things, our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, prospects, growth, strategies and the industry in which we operate. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they related to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and that our actual results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we operate, may differ materially from these statements. Investors should not place undue reliance on such statements. Important factors potentially affecting performance include but are not limited to risks and uncertainties related to our high level of indebtedness and the availability and cost of credit; high interest rates that increase the Company's borrowing costs or volatility in the financial markets that could constrain liquidity and credit availability; the inability to achieve savings and profit improvements at targeted levels in the Company's operations or within the intended time periods; increased competition from foreign suppliers endeavoring to sell glass tableware, ceramic dinnerware and metalware in our core markets; global economic conditions and the related impact on consumer spending levels; major slowdowns or changes in trends in the retail, travel, restaurant and bar or entertainment industries, and in the retail and foodservice channels of distribution generally, that impact demand for our products; inability to meet the demand for new products; material restructuring charges related to involuntary employee terminations, facility sales or closures, or other various restructuring activities; significant increases in per-unit costs for natural gas, electricity, freight, corrugated packaging, and other purchased materials; our ability to borrow under our ABL credit agreement; protracted work stoppages related to collective bargaining agreements; increased pension expense associated with lower returns on pension investments and increased pension obligations; increased tax expense resulting from changes to tax laws, regulations and evolving interpretations thereof; devaluations and other major currency fluctuations relative to the U.S. dollar and the euro that could reduce the cost competitiveness of the Company's products compared to foreign competition; the effect of exchange rate changes to the value of the euro, the Mexican peso, the Chinese renminbi and the Canadian dollar and the earnings and cash flows of our international operations, expressed under U.S. GAAP; the effect of high levels of inflation in countries in which we operate or sell our products; the failure of our investments in e-commerce, new technology and other capital expenditures to yield expected returns; failure to prevent unauthorized access, security breaches and cyber-attacks to our information technology systems; compliance with, or the failure to comply with, legal requirements relating to health, safety and environmental protection; our failure to protect our intellectual property; and the inability to effectively integrate future business we acquire or joint ventures into which we enter. These and other risk factors that could cause results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements can be found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and in other filings with the SEC. Refer to the Company's most recent SEC filings for any updates concerning these and other risks and uncertainties that may affect the Company's operations and performance. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release, and the Company assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances arising after the date of this press release.
