Pandemic Resiliency

Aptar’s adaptability and diverse business model, which serves multiple geographies and attractive end markets, allowed the Company to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic with resilience. “I’m tremendously proud of our team. Throughout the year, we remained committed to providing consumers and patients with the best products and services, while also focusing on the health and safety of our people,” said Stephan B. Tanda, Aptar’s President and CEO. “We delivered on this commitment and ensured the continuity of our manufacturing supply while adapting our working protocols, travel policies and sanitizing procedures. We have greatly increased deployment of digital engagement formats and our people are holding frequent virtual co-creation sessions and webinars with our customers, potential prospects and industry partners. As the pandemic continues, we will adapt to changing market conditions and leverage the lessons learned as we become an even more agile organization. Our innovation pipeline and path to continued growth remain strong across all segments.”

Fourth Quarter Results

For the quarter ended December 31, 2020, reported sales increased 12% to $749 million compared to $671 million in the prior year. Core sales, excluding the impacts from changes in currency exchange rates and acquisitions, increased 5%.

Commenting on the quarter, Tanda, said, “Our diversified portfolio of innovative products enabled us to deliver a strong fourth quarter and full-year performance, including the generation of significant cash from operations and free cash flow. Our Pharma and Food + Beverage segments achieved outstanding results. In our Beauty + Home segment, sluggish demand from the beauty market improved modestly from the third quarter and was offset by increased sales to the personal care and home care markets. I am proud of how our global team performed in the face of a very difficult environment.”

In Pharma, demand increased for Aptar’s drug delivery systems for central nervous system and asthma treatments, and injectable device components used with essential medications. Demand for active packaging solutions used with healthcare applications also increased. In Food + Beverage, continued high levels of at-home consumption drove increased demand for dispensing closures for the food market and there was modest restocking in the beverage market after many quarters of declining sales. In Beauty + Home, strong demand for dispensing systems for facial skin care, hand sanitizer, liquid soap, cleaning and disinfecting products offset decreased sales of pumps for fragrances and lower custom tooling sales compared to the prior year.

Aptar reported fourth quarter earnings per share of $0.79 compared to $0.73 during the same period a year ago, an increase of 8%. Current quarter adjusted earnings per share, excluding restructuring expenses, were $0.92 and increased 8% from the prior year adjusted earnings per share, including comparable exchange rates, of $0.85.

Annual Results

For the year ended December 31, 2020, reported sales increased 2% to $2.93 billion compared to $2.86 billion reported a year ago while core sales remained flat. The effects of currency translation rates were more than offset by the positive contribution from acquisitions.

Aptar’s Pharma segment performed very well throughout the year achieving strong sales growth on top of very strong results a year ago. Demand was particularly strong for injectable components and active packaging solutions. Aptar’s Beauty + Home and Food + Beverage segments experienced a more difficult year due to the pandemic affecting demand from the beauty and beverage markets with improved results in the second half of the year.

During the year, Aptar strengthened its portfolio of digital health offerings that enhance patient adherence by making a strategic investment in Sonmol and acquiring the assets of Cohero Health, both providers of digital healthcare solutions. Aptar also partnered with MIWA Technologies on smart-powered, in-store reusable and refillable capsules for food and beverage products.

For the full year, Aptar’s reported earnings per share were $3.21, a decrease of 12%, compared to $3.66 reported a year ago. Current year adjusted earnings per share, which exclude restructuring costs and acquisition-related expenses, were $3.64 and down 9% from prior year adjusted earnings per share, including comparable exchange rates, of $4.01.

Environment, Social, Governance (ESG)

In addition to our solid financial performance and strategic investments made during the year, I am very pleased with our considerable progress in sustainability, diversity and inclusion initiatives. We are proud to partner with, and participate in, the United Nations Global Compact Initiative, the Science Based Targets Initiative, the Catalyst CEO Champions for Change, and the Gender and Diversity KPI Alliance,” stated Tanda.

Aptar has also published on its website policies for Human Rights; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; and Community Engagement and Global Giving. These important statements outline Aptar’s commitment to upholding human rights, the environment, and supporting the communities in which it operates and beyond. The Company was recognized for its leadership in corporate sustainability by several organizations, including the global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its prestigious ‘A List’ for tackling climate change and was named a Supplier Engagement leader. Aptar also achieved Gold Status by EcoVadis and Prime status by ISS ESG, one of the world’s leading rating agencies for sustainable investments. Finally, Newsweek has named Aptar in the top 100 of “America’s Most Responsible Companies 2021” and Barron’s has named Aptar among the “100 Most Sustainable Companies” for 2021.

Record Cash Flow

Cash generated from operations for the year reached $570 million, an increase of 11% over $514 million in the prior year primarily due to better working capital management and the positive impact of recent acquisitions. The company generated record free cash flow (cash flow from operations less capital expenditures) for the year of $324 million, an increase of 19% over $272 million in the prior year.

Outlook

Aptar expects earnings per share for the first quarter of 2021, excluding any restructuring expenses, to be in the range of $0.86 to $0.94 and this guidance is based on an effective tax rate range of 28% to 30%.

For the first quarter we are looking at demand patterns impacted by the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic experience to date, and we are comparing to the first quarter of last year which was the last quarter not yet impacted by COVID-19 in a meaningful way. In summary, demand in the beauty fragrance and on-the-go beverage markets is expected to remain under pressure. We are also experiencing a drawdown of inventories by certain prescription drug and consumer health care customers in response to fewer cold and flu illnesses resulting from pandemic-related confinements and social distancing, and fewer non-critical doctor visits. We expect continued solid growth in our injectables components, active material solutions and dispensing systems for sanitizers, cleaners and food products. We are optimistic for the full year with a progressive recovery and a second half that will be stronger than the first half. This is aligned with customer expectations and our overall pipeline. We are taking significant steps to invest in growth capacity and new ways of working that will position us even better in the post-pandemic era. Additionally, our balance sheet is in excellent condition to take advantages of strategic opportunities,” said Tanda.

Share Repurchases and Cash Dividend

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Aptar has been focused on preserving liquidity and therefore it temporarily suspended its share repurchase plan. While the Company will continue to assess the impact the pandemic is having on its business throughout 2021, it is removing the aforementioned suspension in order to preserve its flexibility to make repurchases from time to time depending on market conditions. As previously announced, Aptar’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.36 per share. The payment date was February 17, 2021, to stockholders of record as of January 27, 2021.

Open Conference Call

There will be a conference call on Friday, February 19, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. Central Time to discuss the Company’s fourth quarter and annual results for 2020. The call will last approximately one hour. Interested parties are invited to listen to a live webcast by visiting the Investor Relations page at www.aptar.com. Replay of the conference call can also be accessed for a limited time on the Investor Relations page of the website.

Presentation of Non-GAAP Information

This press release refers to certain non-GAAP financial measures, including current year adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA, which exclude the impact of business transformation charges (restructuring initiatives), acquisition-related expenses and certain purchase accounting adjustments related to acquisitions and investments. Core sales and adjusted earnings per share also neutralize the impact of foreign currency translation effects when comparing current results to the prior year. Non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. Aptar’s management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to our investors because they allow for a better period over period comparison of operating results by removing the impact of items that, in management’s view, do not reflect Aptar’s core operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also provide investors with certain information used by Aptar’s management when making financial and operational decisions. Free cash flow is calculated as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. We use free cash flow to measure cash flow generated by operations that is available for dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions and debt repayment. We believe that it is meaningful to investors in evaluating our financial performance and measure our ability to generate cash internally to fund our initiatives. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial results but should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income and other information presented herein. A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included in the accompanying tables. Our outlook is provided on a non-GAAP basis because certain reconciling items are dependent on future events that either cannot be controlled, such as exchange rates, or reliably predicted because they are not part of the Company’s routine activities, such as restructuring and acquisition costs.

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including certain statements set forth under the “Pandemic Resiliency” and “Outlook” sections of this press release.
