AVERY DENNISON CORP MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (form 10-Q)

05/03/2022 | 04:12pm EDT

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, or MD&A, provides management's views on our financial condition and results of operations and should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

We report our financial results in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, and also communicate with investors using certain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for or superior to, the comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement the presentation of our financial results that are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Based on feedback from investors and financial analysts, we believe that the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures we provide are useful to their assessments of our performance and operating trends, as well as liquidity.

Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain events, activities or strategic decisions. The accounting effects of these events, activities or decisions, which are included in the GAAP financial measures, may make it difficult to assess our underlying performance in a single period. By excluding the accounting effects, positive or negative, of certain items (e.g., restructuring charges, outcomes of certain legal proceedings, certain effects of strategic transactions and related costs, losses from debt extinguishments, gains or losses from curtailment or settlement of pension obligations, gains or losses on sales of certain assets, gains or losses on venture investments and other items), we believe that we are providing meaningful supplemental information that facilitates an understanding of our core operating results and liquidity measures. While some of the items we exclude from GAAP financial measures recur, they tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, or timing.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate trends in our underlying performance, as well as to facilitate comparison to the results of competitors for quarters and year-to-date periods, as applicable.

We use the non-GAAP financial measures described below in this MD&A.

•Sales change ex. currency refers to the increase or decrease in net sales, excluding the estimated impact of foreign currency translation and the reclassification of sales between segments, and, where applicable, an extra week in our fiscal year and the calendar shift resulting from the extra week in the prior fiscal year and currency adjustment for transitional reporting of highly inflationary economies. The estimated impact of foreign currency translation is calculated on a constant currency basis, with prior period results translated at current period average exchange rates to exclude the effect of currency fluctuations. •Organic sales change refers to sales change ex. currency, excluding the estimated impact of acquisitions and product line divestitures.

We believe that sales change ex. currency and organic sales change assist investors in evaluating the sales change from the ongoing activities of our businesses and enhance their ability to evaluate our results from period to period.

•Free cash flow refers to cash flow provided by operating activities, less payments for property, plant and equipment, software and other deferred charges, plus proceeds from sales of property, plant and equipment, plus (minus) net proceeds from insurance and sales (purchases) of investments. Free cash flow is also adjusted for, where applicable, certain acquisition-related transaction costs. We believe that free cash flow assists investors by showing the amount of cash we have available for debt reductions, dividends, share repurchases and acquisitions. •Operational working capital as a percentage of annualized current quarter net sales refers to trade accounts receivable and inventories, net of accounts payable, and excludes cash and cash equivalents, short-term borrowings, deferred taxes, other current assets and other current liabilities, as well as net current assets or liabilities held-for-sale divided by annualized current quarter net sales. We believe that operational working capital as a percentage of annualized current quarter net sales assists investors in assessing our working capital requirements because it excludes the impact of fluctuations attributable to our financing and other activities (which affect cash and cash equivalents, deferred taxes, other current assets, and other current liabilities) that tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, or timing, and may increase the volatility of working capital as a percentage of sales from period to period. The items excluded from this measure are not significantly influenced by our day-to-day activities managed at the operating level and do not necessarily reflect the underlying trends in our operations.

                                                                              15

OVERVIEW AND OUTLOOK

Net Sales

The factors impacting the reported sales change, as compared to the prior-year period, are shown in the table below.

                                                         Three Months Ended

(1) Totals may not sum due to rounding

In the three months ended April 2, 2022, net sales increased on an organic basis compared to the same period in the prior year due to pricing actions and higher volume/mix.

Net Income

Net income decreased from approximately $210 million in the first three months of 2021 to approximately $198 million in the first three months of 2022. Major factors affecting the change in net income included the following:


•Higher tax provision
•Unfavorable currency translation
•Growth investments

Offsetting factors:
•Higher organic volume/mix
•Higher income from business acquisitions, net of associated amortization of
other intangibles

Acquisitions

During January 2022, we completed our acquisitions of TexTrace AG ("TexTrace"), a Switzerland-based technology developer specializing in custom-made woven and knitted radio-frequency identification ("RFID") products that can be sewn onto or inserted into garments, and Rietveld, a Netherlands-based provider of external embellishment solutions and application and printing methods for performance brands and team sports in Europe. These acquisitions expand the product portfolio in our Retail Branding and Information Solutions ("RBIS") reportable segment.

The acquisitions of TexTrace and Rietveld are referred to collectively as the "2022 Acquisitions."

The aggregate purchase consideration for the 2022 Acquisitions was approximately $35 million. We funded the 2022 Acquisitions using cash and commercial paper borrowings. In addition to the cash paid at closing, the sellers in one of these acquisitions are eligible for earn-out payments of up to $30 million subject to the acquired company achieving certain post-acquisition performance targets. As of the acquisition date, we have included an estimate of the fair value of these earn-out payments in the aggregate purchase consideration.

The 2022 Acquisitions were not material, individually or in the aggregate, to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Refer to Note 2, "Acquisitions," to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.

Cost Reduction Actions

2019/2020 Actions During the three months ended April 2, 2022, we recorded $0.9 million in restructuring charges related to our 2019/2020 actions. These charges consisted of severance and related costs for the reduction of approximately 20 positions at numerous locations across our company. These actions, which were primarily taken in our RBIS reportable segment, largely related to global headcount and footprint reductions. Accruals for severance and related costs, as well as lease cancellation costs, were not material as of April 2, 2022.

Restructuring charges were included in "Other expense (income), net" in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. Refer to Note 5, "Cost Reduction Actions," to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.

                                                                              16
