ACCO Brands Reports Third Quarter Results

11/07/2022
  • Achieved solid North America back-to-school sell through; Five Star® outperformed the market
  • Realized double-digit sales and profit growth in the International segment, led by Latin America
  • Implemented multiple cost and pricing actions to improve margin profile
  • Generated $88 million in cash from operations; adjusted free cash flow of $84 million
  • Increased financial flexibility with a new bank amendment
  • Declared $0.075 quarterly dividend

ACCO Brands Corporation (NYSE: ACCO) today announced its third quarter results for the period ended September 30, 2022.

"Our third quarter results were in line with our October 13th update. During the quarter, our North America segment had strong sell-through in back-to-school, office and technology categories; however, these improvements were more than offset by retailers' more cautious approach to inventory replenishment. In Europe, the current energy crisis and significant inflation have created a more challenging macroeconomic environment, impacting sales and profits in our EMEA segment. Our International segment delivered excellent results with double digit growth in sales and profits. To offset the near-term macroeconomic challenges, we have implemented cost savings and pricing actions," said Boris Elisman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ACCO Brands.

"We remain confident in our strategy and that the solid fundamentals of our overall business have us well positioned for long-term profitable growth. The Company is well-capitalized and generates robust free cash flow which will enable us to successfully navigate the current economic environment. Our strategic transformation plan to be a more consumer, brand, and technology centric company remains on track," added Elisman.

Third Quarter Results

Net sales declined 7.8 percent to $485.6 million from $526.7 million in 2021. Adverse foreign exchange reduced sales $29.9 million, or 5.7 percent. Comparable sales fell 2.1 percent. Both reported and comparable sales declines were due to lower inventory replenishment by retailers and a challenging demand environment in many countries, especially in Europe. These more than offset global price increases and strong volume growth in our International segment.

Operating loss was $63.0 million versus operating income of $38.6 million in 2021 primarily due to a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $98.7 million related to the North America segment. Adjusted operating income decreased to $42.8 million from $57.0 million in the prior year. Both reported and adjusted operating loss/income reflect the impact of higher inflation which was not fully offset by price increases, lower volume and adverse foreign exchange of $1.9 million, partially offset by lower incentive compensation expense.

The Company reported a net loss of $68.7 million, or ($0.73) per share, compared with net income of $20.2 million, or $0.21 per share, last year. The net loss is primarily due to the non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $98.7 million, with no associated tax benefit. Foreign currency exchange reduced reported earnings per share by $0.01. Adjusted net income was $24.1 million, or $0.25 per share, compared with $31.7 million, or $0.33 per share in 2021. The declines in underlying net income and adjusted net income were due to the items noted above in operating income, partially offset by lower net interest expense and a lower tax rate.

Business Segment Results

ACCO Brands North America - Sales of $257.2 million decreased 10.5 percent from $287.5 million in 2021 and comparable sales declined 10.0 percent to $258.5 million. The decreases in both were primarily due to lower volumes related to inventory destocking by retailers and lower sales of gaming accessories, partially offset by price increases and higher sales of computer accessories.

Operating loss was $78.4 million versus operating income of $34.6 million in 2021. The loss is primarily due to the $98.7 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge. Adjusted operating income of $25.8 million decreased from $41.6 million in 2021. The decreases in operating income and adjusted operating income reflect the impact of lower sales and gross margins from higher inflation on purchased finished goods and transportation, and increased go-to-market expense to support back-to-school sell-through.

ACCO Brands EMEA - Sales of $130.3 million decreased 19.1 percent from $161.1 million in 2021. The impact of adverse foreign exchange reduced sales $24.1 million, or 15.0 percent. Comparable sales of $154.4 million decreased 4.1 percent. Both reported and comparable sales declines were due to lower volumes which more than offset price increases. In Europe, the current energy crisis and significant inflation have created a more challenging macroeconomic environment impacting sales.

The segment posted operating income of $4.9 million compared with operating income of $13.4 million in 2021. Adjusted operating income was $7.4 million, down from $17.3 million in 2021. The decreases in both operating income and adjusted operating income were due to lower sales and reduced gross margins reflecting negative fixed cost leverage and higher costs for raw materials and freight due to significant inflation.

ACCO Brands International - Sales of $98.1 million increased 25.6 percent from $78.1 million in 2021 due to increased volume and higher prices, primarily in Latin America from in-person education. Adverse foreign exchange reduced sales by $4.5 million. Comparable sales were $102.6 million, up 31.4 percent, for the same reasons.

Operating income of $17.3 million increased from $7.3 million in 2021 due primarily to higher sales and improved expense leverage. Adjusted operating income of $19.2 million increased from $9.8 million due to the same factors.

Nine Month Results

Net sales decreased 0.5 percent to $1,448.2 million from $1,455.0 million in 2021. The unfavorable impact of foreign exchange reduced sales by $68.4 million, or 4.7 percent. Comparable sales increased 4.2 percent. Both reported and comparable sales reflect the benefit of higher prices in all segments and strong volume growth in the International segment, partially offset by lower volumes in EMEA due to the challenging macroeconomic environment, and in North America due to weaker sales of gaming accessories.

Operating loss of $0.8 million compares to operating income of $87.4 million in 2021, primarily due to the non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $98.7 million, partially offset by the favorable change of $25.5 million related to the PowerA contingent earnout. Adjusted operating income declined to $123.5 million from $148.8 million last year. Both reported and adjusted operating loss/income reflect the impact of inflation that exceeded the benefit of price increases, partially offset by reduced incentive compensation expense. Unfavorable foreign exchange reduced operating income $4.1 million.

Net loss was $32.0 million, or ($0.33) per share, compared with net income of $48.4 million, or $0.50 per share, in 2021, reflecting the changes in reported operating income noted above. In addition, prior year net income included expenses related to the debt refinancing which did not repeat in 2022. Adjusted net income was $70.5 million, compared with $83.7 million in 2021, and adjusted earnings per share were $0.73 compared with $0.86 in 2021. The declines in adjusted net income reflect the changes noted above for adjusted operating income, partially offset by lower net interest expense.

Capital Allocation and Dividend

Year to date, the Company had $9.6 million of net cash outflow from operating activities. Adjusted free cash outflow of $12.0 million represents cash used by operating activities of $9.6 million, excluding cash payments made for the PowerA contingent earnout of $9.2 million, less cash used for additions to property, plant and equipment of $11.8 million, plus cash proceeds from the disposition of assets of $0.2 million. Year to date, the Company paid $21.5 million in dividends and repurchased 2.7 million shares for $19.4 million.

Effective November 7, 2022, the Company entered into an amendment to its bank credit agreement which increases its maximum consolidated leverage ratio covenant, beginning with the fourth quarter of 2022, and favorably amends several other items.

ACCO Brands announced on November 7, 2022, that its board of directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.075 per share. The dividend will be paid on December 12, 2022, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 25, 2022.

"ACCO Brands has a transformed product portfolio that is more consumer, brand and technology centric and geographically diverse, which will deliver sustainable organic revenue growth as global economies recover. Furthermore, we believe our price increases, productivity improvement and cost reduction actions, together with an expected moderation of inflation, position us well for margin expansion, and profitability and cash flow improvement in the year ahead," Elisman added.

Reaffirming Full Year 2022 Outlook

The full year outlook reflects a moderating demand environment for the remainder of the year, continuing cost inflation, and adverse foreign currency exchange. However, the Company anticipates sequential gross margin improvement in the fourth quarter, as its pricing and cost reduction actions further mitigate the impact of cumulative inflationary cost increases. The full year impact of foreign currency translation is expected to reduce net sales by 4.5% and adjusted EPS by $0.05.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements contained herein, other than statements of historical fact, particularly those anticipating future financial performance, business prospects, growth, strategies, business operations and similar matters, results of operations, liquidity and financial condition, are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on the beliefs and assumptions of management based on information available to us at the time such statements are made. These statements, which are generally identifiable by the use of the words “will,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “project,” “plan,” and similar expressions, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, are made as of the date hereof, and we undertake no duty or obligation to update them. Because actual results may differ materially from those suggested or implied by such forward-looking statements, you should not place undue reliance on them when deciding whether to buy, sell or hold the company’s securities.

Our outlook is based on certain assumptions, which we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. These include, without limitation, assumptions regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine; changes in the competitive landscape, including ongoing uncertainties in the traditional office products channels; as well as the impact of inflation and global economic uncertainties, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and acquisitions; and the other factors described below.

Among the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from our forward-looking statements are: our ability to improve profitability and adjusted free cash flow in the near-term by curtailing hiring, reducing inventory and limiting discretionary spending and capital expenditures; our ability to obtain additional price increases and realize longer-term cost reductions; the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; a relatively limited number of large customers account for a significant percentage of our sales; issues that influence customer and consumer discretionary spending during periods of economic uncertainty or weakness; risks associated with foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations; challenges related to the highly competitive business environment in which we operate; our ability to develop and market innovative products that meet consumer demands and to expand into new and adjacent product categories that are experiencing higher growth rates; our ability to successfully expand our business in emerging markets and the exposure to greater financial, operational, regulatory, compliance and other risks in such markets; the continued decline in the use of certain of our products; risks associated with seasonality; the sufficiency of investment returns on pension assets, risks related to actuarial assumptions, changes in government regulations and changes in the unfunded liabilities of a multi-employer pension plan; any impairment of our intangible assets; our ability to secure, protect and maintain our intellectual property rights, and our ability to license rights from major gaming console makers and video game publishers to support our gaming business; continued disruptions in the global supply chain; risks associated with changes in the cost or availability of raw materials, transportation, labor, and other necessary supplies and services and the cost of finished goods; the continued global shortage of microchips which are needed in our gaming and computer accessories businesses; risks associated with outsourcing production of certain of our products, information technology systems and other administrative functions; the failure, inadequacy or interruption of our information technology systems or its supporting infrastructure; risks associated with a cybersecurity incident or information security breach, including that related to a disclosure of personally identifiable information; our ability to grow profitably through acquisitions; our ability to successfully integrate acquisitions and achieve the financial and other results anticipated at the time of acquisition, including planned synergies; risks associated with our indebtedness, including limitations imposed by restrictive covenants, our debt service obligations, and our ability to comply with financial ratios and tests; a change in or discontinuance of our stock repurchase program or the payment of dividends; product liability claims, recalls or regulatory actions; the impact of litigation or other legal proceedings; our failure to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations and self-regulatory requirements, the costs of compliance and the impact of changes in such laws; our ability to attract and retain qualified personnel; the volatility of our stock price; risks associated with circumstances outside our control, including those caused by public health crises, such as the occurrence of contagious diseases like COVID-19, severe weather events, war, terrorism and other geopolitical incidents; and other risks and uncertainties described in “Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We explain below how we calculate each of our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of our current period and historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures follows.

We use our non-GAAP financial measures both to explain our results to stockholders and the investment community and in the internal evaluation and management of our business. We believe our non-GAAP financial measures provide management and investors with a more complete understanding of our underlying operational results and trends, facilitate meaningful period-to-period comparisons and enhance an overall understanding of our past and future financial performance.

Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results such as restructuring charges, transaction and integration expenses associated with material acquisitions, the impact of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions, unusual tax items, goodwill impairment charges, and other non-recurring items that we consider to be outside of our core operations. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the directly comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read in connection with the Company’s financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP.

Our non-GAAP financial measures include the following:

Comparable Sales : Represents net sales excluding the impact of material acquisitions with current-period foreign operation sales translated at prior-year currency rates. We believe comparable sales are useful to investors and management because they reflect underlying sales and sales trends without the effect of acquisitions and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and facilitate meaningful period-to-period comparisons. We sometimes refer to comparable sales as comparable net sales.

Adjusted Gross Profit : Represents gross profit excluding the effect of the amortization of the step-up in inventory from material acquisitions. We believe adjusted gross profit is useful to investors and management because it reflects underlying gross profit without the effect of inventory adjustments resulting from acquisitions that we consider to be outside our core operations and facilitates meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) Expenses : Represents selling, general and administrative expenses excluding transaction and integration expenses related to material acquisitions. We believe adjusted SG&A expenses are useful to investors and management because they reflect underlying SG&A expenses without the effect of expenses related to acquiring and integrating acquisitions that we consider to be outside our core operations and facilitate meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

Adjusted Operating Income/Adjusted Income Before Taxes/Adjusted Net Income/Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share: Represents operating income, income before taxes, net income, and net income per diluted share excluding restructuring and goodwill impairment charges, the amortization of intangibles, the amortization of the step-up in value of inventory, the change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction and integration expenses associated with material acquisitions, non-recurring items in interest expense or other income/expense such as expenses associated with debt refinancing, a bond redemption, or a pension curtailment, and other non-recurring items as well as all unusual and discrete income tax adjustments, including income tax related to the foregoing. We believe these adjusted non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and management because they reflect our underlying operating performance before items that we consider to be outside our core operations and facilitate meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Senior management’s incentive compensation is derived, in part, using adjusted operating income and adjusted net income per diluted share, which is derived from adjusted net income. We sometimes refer to adjusted net income per diluted share as adjusted earnings per share or adjusted EPS.

Adjusted Income Tax Expense/Rate: Represents income tax expense/rate excluding the tax effect of the items that have been excluded from adjusted income before taxes, unusual income tax items such as the impact of tax audits and changes in laws, significant reserves for cash repatriation, excess tax benefits/losses, and other discrete tax items. We believe our adjusted income tax expense/rate is useful to investors because it reflects our baseline income tax expense/rate before benefits/losses and other discrete items that we consider to be outside our core operations and facilitates meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

Adjusted EBITDA: Represents net income excluding the effects of depreciation, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, the change in fair value of contingent consideration, interest expense, net, other (income) expense, net, and income tax expense, the amortization of the step-up in value of inventory, transaction and integration expenses associated with material acquisitions, restructuring and goodwill impairment charges, non-recurring items in interest expense or other income/expense such as expenses associated with debt refinancing, a bond redemption, or a pension curtailment and other non-recurring items. We believe adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it reflects our underlying cash profitability and adjusts for certain non-cash charges, and items that we consider to be outside our core operations and facilitates meaningful period-to-period comparisons.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow: Represents cash flow from operating activities, excluding cash payments made for contingent earnouts, less cash used for additions to property, plant and equipment, plus cash proceeds from the disposition of assets. We believe adjusted free cash flow is useful to investors because it measures our available cash flow for paying dividends, funding strategic material acquisitions, reducing debt, and repurchasing shares.

Consolidated Leverage Ratio: Represents balance sheet debt, plus debt origination costs and less any cash and cash equivalents divided by adjusted EBITDA. We believe that consolidated leverage ratio is useful to investors since the company has the ability to, and may decide to use a portion of its cash and cash equivalents to retire debt.

We also provide forward-looking non-GAAP comparable sales, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted free cash flow, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted tax rate, and historical and forward-looking consolidated leverage ratio. We do not provide a reconciliation of these forward-looking and historical non-GAAP measures to GAAP because the GAAP financial measure is not currently available and management cannot reliably predict all the necessary components of such non-GAAP measures without unreasonable effort or expense due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such a reconciliation, including adjustments that could be made for restructuring, integration and acquisition-related expenses, the variability of our tax rate and the impact of foreign currency fluctuation and material acquisitions, and other charges reflected in our historical results. The probable significance of each of these items is high and, based on historical experience, could be material.
