(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110215/CG49203LOGO)

Fourth Quarter 2012 Highlights Included:

  • Integration of the acquired Forbo adhesives business remained on or ahead of schedule and on track to fully deliver synergy targets;
  • Net revenue was up 28 percent, organic revenue was up 3 percent from last year's fourth quarter, as adjusted to reflect the same number of weeks in each period;
  • Gross profit margin improved 120 basis points compared to the prior quarter;
  • Regional operating income2 increased 36 percent versus last year;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.641 was up approximately 23 percent on a comparable 13 week basis.

Full-Year 2012 Highlights Included:

  • Achieved record levels of net revenue and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations;
  • Completed acquisition of Industrial Adhesives business from the Forbo Group;
  • Completed divestiture of Central America Paints business to Grupo Mundial;
  • Integration of the acquired Forbo adhesives business remained on schedule and on track to fully deliver synergy targets;
  • Organic revenue increased 6 percent when adjusting for the extra week in the prior year;
  • Regional operating income2 increased 39 percent year-over-year;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS1 from continuing operations grew 28 percent year-over-year.

Note that the 2011 fiscal year had 53 weeks of commercial activity, with the extra week in the fourth quarter of 2011, while the 2012 fiscal year was the normal 52 weeks in length.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Results:
Net income from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $25.0 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, versus net income from continuing operations of $22.2 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in last year's fourth quarter. Adjusted total diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $0.641, up 14 percent from the prior year's adjusted result of $0.561 and up 23 percent on a comparable 13 week basis. 

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $513.3 million, up 27.8 percent versus the fourth quarter of 2011. Year-over-year growth was approximately 35 percent when adjusting for the extra week in the prior year.  When excluding the incremental revenue from the acquired Forbo business, net revenue was flat, representing 3 percent organic growth offset by 3 percentage points of unfavorable foreign currency translation. The organic growth was comprised of a 1 percent increase in price and 2 percent growth in volume.

"The results we delivered in the final quarter of this fiscal year are impressive, even when comparing to last year's reported results which included an extra week," said Jim Owens, H.B. Fuller president and chief executive officer. "Our fourth quarter revenue came in right on target and we exceeded our internal expectations for margin expansion as some business integration benefits were realized earlier than anticipated and the raw material cost environment was generally favorable. Our performance trends are good, our integration plans are on schedule and we have strong momentum as we enter the 2013 fiscal year."

Gross profit margin from continuing operations was flat compared to the prior year as the margin dilution from the acquired Forbo business was fully offset by benefits from the business integration activities and other margin enhancement initiatives. Sequentially, gross profit margin increased 120 basis points, due to the positive impact of the business integration and the favorable raw material cost environment. Relative to the prior year, Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expense from continuing operations increased by 24 percent to $95.4 million, but was down 50 basis points as a percentage of net revenue to 18.6 percent.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow:
At the end of the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company had cash totaling $200 million and total debt of $520 million. This compares to third quarter levels of $208 million and $532 million, respectively. Sequentially, net debt was essentially unchanged. Operating cash flow in the fourth quarter was $44 million reflecting solid profitability in the core business  and better inventory management. Operating cash flow for the full-year was $109 million. Capital expenditures were $21.0 million in the fourth quarter and $39.2 million for the full-year.

Fiscal Year 2012 Results:
"This has been a transformative year for H.B. Fuller", said Owens. "While working to complete the acquisition of the industrial adhesives business from the Forbo Group and the divestiture of the Central America Paints business, our teams kept the momentum going.  EBITDA margin expansion is one of our key financial metrics and in 2012 we delivered.  In 2012 we increased our EBITDA margin by 90 basis points relative to the reported level of last year – and this was achieved while integrating the Forbo business that generated about 6 percent EBITDA margin in the year before the acquisition. The results of our hard work are evident and plans are set to extend these trends in 2013."

Net income from continuing operations for the 2012 fiscal year was $68.3 million, or $1.34 per diluted share, versus $80.2 million, or $1.61 per diluted share, in the 2011 fiscal year. Adjusted total diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the 2012 fiscal year were $2.201, up 28 percent from the prior year's adjusted result of $1.721.

Net revenue for the 2012 fiscal year was $1,886.2 million, up 30.6 percent versus the 2011 fiscal year. Year-over-year growth was approximately 33 percent  when adjusting for the extra week in the prior year.  When excluding the incremental revenue from the acquired Forbo business, net revenue grew 3 percent, representing 6 percent organic growth offset by 3 percentage points of unfavorable foreign currency translation. The organic growth was comprised of a 5 percent increase in price and 1 percent growth in volume.

Business Integration and Special Charges
The Company has implemented a comprehensive business integration program to deliver synergies related to the acquisition of the Forbo adhesives business and to improve the performance of the EIMEA operating segment. The table below provides an estimate of the expected one-time costs of executing this multi-year project.  In addition, the table lists, for each cost element, the costs incurred in the current quarter, year-to-date period, and since the project's inception in the fourth quarter of 2011:

Fiscal 2013 Outlook:
The Company's adjusted earnings guidance for the 2013 fiscal year is a range of $2.55 to $2.65 per diluted share. Adjusted earnings per share exclude all special charges related to the business integration project which is ongoing. 

The Company expects end-market demand to generally reflect the broad economic conditions in the regions where the Company operates. Reported revenue growth is expected to be more than 10 percent while organic revenue growth is expected to be in the low single digits, the difference reflecting the benefit of a full year of the Forbo business which was acquired at the beginning of the second quarter of 2012.  Raw material costs are expected to remain at current levels through the first half of 2013 with some modest inflation possible in the second half of the year. The company anticipates margin expansion in 2013, primarily related to the benefits of the business integration project, driving operating income and EBITDA growth of about 20 percent. The EBITDA margin goal for 2013 is 12.5 percent, up approximately 100 basis points relative to the 2012 fiscal year and on track to achieve the 15 percent margin target for 2015. Capital expenditures will be unusually large in 2013 as a significant portion of the investment for the business integration project is completed. The company's earlier projections of $195 million of aggregate capital expenditures over the three years of the business integration project, or a total of about $250 million of capital expenditures over the fiscal years 2012 through 2015, are confirmed.   

The table below shows each of the elements of the Company's 2013 guidance.  All amounts shown are presented on the basis described above.

1  Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations is a non-GAAP financial measure. First, second, third and fourth quarters of 2012 exclude special charges associated with two previously announced events: the EIMEA business transformation project and the expenses associated with the Forbo acquisition integration project, which have been combined and are now referred to as the "business integration". Special charges, net amounted to $6.5 million, $32.1 million, $4.7 million and $9.2 million on a pre-tax basis ($0.14, $0.47, $0.08 and $0.15 per diluted share) in the first, second, third and fourth quarters, respectively. During the fourth quarter of 2011, these costs amounted to $7.5 million on a pre-tax basis ($0.12 per diluted share in Q4 2011 and $0.11 per diluted for the full year 2011). During the second quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a one-time negative impact of the fair value step-up on the inventory acquired with the Forbo business on the gross profit margin line of the income statement. On a pre-tax basis, this "step-up" amounted to $3.3 million dollars ($0.05 per diluted share). Lastly, during the third quarter of 2012, various discrete items impacted the quarter's results. These tax items had a positive impact on net income of $1.7 million dollars ($0.03 per diluted share). A reconciliation to reported earnings per diluted share is provided in the tables above.

2 Regional operating income is defined as gross profit less SG&A expense.  Items that are reported on the special charges line of the income statement are excluded from the regional operating income calculation. In Q4 2011, special charges, net totaled $7.5 million. In Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4  2012, special charges, net totaled $6.5 million, $32.1 million, $4.7 million and $9.2 million, respectively.

3   EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined on a consolidated basis as gross profit, less SG&A expense, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. On a regional basis it is defined as operating income, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. EBITDA margin is defined as EBITDA divided by net revenue.

4   Regional operating margin is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as gross profit, less SG&A expense, divided by net revenue.

The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015. As we connect the physical world with information technology, data from actions, processes and the environment can increase sales, improve efficiencies, automate daily activities and minimize risk. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
There will be 150 billion connected devices by 2020. New digital businesses have already disrupted value chains across every industry. APIs are at the center of the digital business. You need to understand what assets you have that can be exposed digitally, what their digital value chain is, and how to create an effective business model around that value chain to compete in this economy. No enterprise can be complacent and not engage in the digital economy. Learn how to be the disruptor and not the disruptee.
The enterprise market will drive IoT device adoption over the next five years. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Greenough, an analyst at BI Intelligence, division of Business Insider, will analyze how companies will adopt IoT products and the associated cost of adopting those products. John Greenough is the lead analyst covering the Internet of Things for BI Intelligence- Business Insider’s paid research service. Numerous IoT companies have cited his analysis of the IoT. Prior to joining BI Intelligence, he worked analyzing bank technology for Corporate Insight and The Clearing House Pay...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
SYS-CON Events announced today that MetraTech, now part of Ericsson, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY. Ericsson is the driving force behind the Networked Society- a world leader in communications infrastructure, software and services. Some 40% of the world’s mobile traffic runs through networks Ericsson has supplied, serving more than 2.5 billion subscribers.

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the
