Stephan B. Tanda, President and CEO, said, “Each of our segments grew in the quarter, reflecting strong demand for our innovative solutions across our various end markets and pricing actions to pass through increased raw material and other input costs.”

Aptar’s Pharma segment grew solidly in the quarter. Demand for elastomeric components for vaccines and other injected medicines continued to be strong and sales to the consumer healthcare market grew including solutions for nasal decongestants used to treat cough and cold symptoms. Aptar experienced increased demand for active material science solutions across a variety of applications including the supply of Activ-Film™ moisture-mitigating technology used to enhance the integrity of certain diagnostic tests such as in-home COVID-19 tests. Sales to the prescription market declined compared to the prior year fourth quarter which included an outsized increase in demand for devices used with central nervous system treatments. Pharma’s margins reflected the current mix of business and were comparable to the prior year fourth quarter.

Aptar’s Beauty + Home segment’s growth in the quarter was primarily driven by price initiatives along with increased demand for dispensing systems for fragrance, skincare and hair care products. The beauty market continued to gradually recover though the business is not yet at 2019 volumes. Beauty + Home’s margins were comparable with the prior year period in spite of increased headwinds from the timing of passing on raw material costs as well as significant supply chain and labor shortage impacts, predominantly in North America.

Aptar’s Food + Beverage segment generated double-digit core sales growth with approximately 60% of the growth coming from price adjustments to pass through resin and other cost increases. The remaining growth was driven by strong demand across a variety of applications led by condiments and bottled water. Food + Beverage margins were below prior year margin levels primarily due to the higher raw material cost environment and the related pass-through effect, which has compressed margins.

Aptar reported fourth quarter earnings per share of $0.85, an increase of 8%, compared to $0.79 during the same period a year ago. Fourth quarter adjusted earnings per share, excluding restructuring charges, acquisition costs and the unrealized loss on an equity investment, were $0.93, an increase of 3%, compared to $0.90 in the prior year, including comparable exchange rates.

Annual Results

For the year ended December 31, 2021, reported sales increased 10% to $3.23 billion compared to $2.93 billion in the prior year. Core sales, excluding the impacts from changes in currency exchange rates and acquisitions, increased 7%.

(1) – Currency effects are approximated by translating last year’s amounts at this year’s foreign exchange rates.

For the full year 2021, broad-based demand for Aptar’s innovative solutions and price adjustments to offset increased input costs drove core sales growth of 7%. Positive currency and acquisition effects also contributed to strong reported sales growth of 10%.

Tanda stated, “I am very proud of our global workforce that has continued to deliver on our promises to our customers and the millions of people around the world who rely on our products. Many of our products continue to be at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, including our solutions for vaccines and other injected medicines, Activ-Film™ technology that enhances the stability of in-home COVID-19 antigen tests, closures and pumps for soaps and sanitizers and more. We also continue to invest to strengthen our competitive positions across our businesses and drive growth and value going forward. We began several strategic capital projects including the expansion of our capacity for elastomeric components used with injected medicines and we broke ground on a new state-of-the art facility in Suzhou, China, which will enable us to further serve that rapidly growing market. We were also pleased to welcome Voluntis, a pioneer in digital therapeutics, and Weihai Hengyu Medical Products, a regional leader in elastomeric components, to our Aptar family. In addition, over the past year, we have been recognized both nationally and internationally for our efforts towards becoming an even more sustainable, inclusive, diverse and equitable company.”

For the full year, Aptar’s reported earnings per share were $3.61, an increase of 12%, compared to $3.21 reported a year ago. Current year adjusted earnings per share, excluding restructuring charges, acquisition costs and the unrealized gain on an equity investment, were $3.88 and increased 4% from prior year adjusted earnings per share, including comparable exchange rates, of $3.74. Cash generated from operations for the year decreased compared to 2020 primarily due to an increase in working capital resulting from our sales growth including the effects of price increases related to passing through higher raw material and other input costs on accounts receivable, as well as higher costs of inventory. Free cash flow reflected the lower cash generated from operations and higher capital expenditures.

Outlook

Regarding Aptar’s outlook, Tanda stated, “Looking forward to the first quarter, we expect solid growth in our Pharma segment. Our prescription division is expected to report growth in the allergy category as we see signs of the destocking ending across most accounts. Other areas of our Pharma segment are expected to continue to do well, especially active material solutions where demand for in-home COVID-19 antigen tests should be quite strong. Our beauty business continues to recover, especially in the prestige area and many of our customers are optimistic that 2022 will be a good year for them. Our beverage business is also seeing signs of recovery. Other COVID-19 variants may impact the pace of these recoveries. Supply chain disruptions are expected to continue in the near-term, primarily impacting our business in the U.S., and in some cases, impacting certain customers in both Beauty + Home and Food + Beverage segments. Currency headwinds may also continue in the near-term. We will continue to contain costs, improve efficiencies, and plan to increase prices to offset the effects of rising input costs.”

Aptar expects earnings per share for the first quarter of 2022, excluding any restructuring expenses, changes in the fair value of equity investments and acquisition costs, to be in the range of $0.92 to $1.00 and this guidance is based on an effective tax rate range of 27% to 29%. This tax rate range compares to our first quarter of 2021 effective tax rate of 16% on adjusted earnings. The earnings per share guidance range was based on a Euro/US$ exchange rate of 1.14 and other foreign currency exchange rates as of January 31, 2022.

Tanda concluded, “Our products are in the hands of millions of people every single day and our considerable exposure to attractive, high growth areas will continue to drive enhanced results. Our customers recognize us as a true innovation leader that has shaped the drug delivery and consumer product dispensing industries. At the same time, we are increasing sustainability and efficiency across the organization. We are well-positioned for continued growth beyond the current pandemic and economic environment. We will continue to seek out areas for growth and seek strategic partnerships to expand Aptar’s offerings for our customers, our company and our shareholders.”

Cash Dividends and Share Repurchases

Aptar completed its 28th consecutive year of returning increased annual cash dividends to shareholders with dividend payments totaling $99 million for the year 2021. As previously announced, Aptar’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.38 per share. The payment date is February 23, 2022, to stockholders of record as of February 3, 2022.

Aptar was also actively repurchasing shares during 2021 and repurchased 615 thousand shares for approximately $78 million. During the fourth quarter, Aptar repurchased 395 thousand shares for approximately $50 million, leaving $200 million authorized for common stock repurchases at the end of the year. Aptar may repurchase shares through the open market, privately negotiated transactions or other programs, subject to market conditions.

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 costs, certain purchase accounting adjustments related to acquisitions and investments and net unrealized investment gains and losses related to observable market price changes on equity securities. 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 plus proceeds from government grants related to 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 measuring 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 and changes in the fair value of equity investments, 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 “Outlook” section of this press release. Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “future,” “potential,” “continues” and other similar expressions or future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “should,” “would” and “could” are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are based on our beliefs as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to us. Accordingly, our actual results or other events may differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements due to known or unknown risks and uncertainties that exist in our operations and business environment including, but not limited to: the impact of COVID-19 and its variants on our global supply chain and our global customers, employees and operations; economic conditions worldwide, including potential deflationary or inflationary conditions in regions we rely on for growth; the availability of direct labor workers and the increase in direct labor costs, especially in North America; our ability to preserve organizational culture and maintain employee productivity in the work-from-home environment caused by the current pandemic; the availability of raw materials and components (particularly from sole sourced suppliers) as well as the financial viability of these suppliers; fluctuations in the cost of materials, components, transportation cost as a result of supply chain disruptions and labor shortages, and other input costs (particularly resin, metal, anodization costs and energy costs); political conditions worldwide; significant fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates or our effective tax rate; the impact of tax reform legislation, changes in tax rates and other tax-related events or transactions that could impact our effective tax rate; financial conditions of customers and suppliers; consolidations within our customer or supplier bases; changes in customer and/or consumer spending levels; loss of one or more key accounts; our ability to successfully implement facility expansions and new facility projects; our ability to offset inflationary impacts with cost containment, productivity initiatives or price increases; changes in capital availability or cost, including interest rate fluctuations; volatility of global credit markets; our ability to identify potential new acquisitions and to successfully acquire and integrate such operations, including the successful integration of the businesses we have acquired, including contingent consideration valuation; our ability to build out acquired businesses and integrate the product/service offerings of the acquired entities into our existing product/service portfolio; direct or indirect consequences of acts of war, terrorism or social unrest; cybersecurity threats that could impact our networks and reporting systems; the impact of natural disasters and other weather-related occurrences; fiscal and monetary policies and other regulations; changes or difficulties in complying with government regulation; changing regulations or market conditions regarding environmental sustainability; work stoppages due to labor disputes; competition, including technological advances; our ability to protect and defend our intellectual property rights, as well as litigation involving intellectual property rights; the outcome of any legal proceeding that has been or may be instituted against us and others; our ability to meet future cash flow estimates to support our goodwill impairment testing; the demand for existing and new products; the success of our customers’ products, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry; our ability to manage worldwide customer launches of complex technical products, particularly in developing markets; difficulties in product development and uncertainties related to the timing or outcome of product development; significant product liability claims; and other risks associated with our operations..
