(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.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
