Graphic Packaging Holding Company (NYSE: GPK), (la "Compañía"), un proveedor líder en soluciones de empaques para compañías de alimentos, bebidas y otras compañías de productos de consumo, hoy anunció el ingreso neto del segundo trimestre de 2019 de $63.8 millones o $0.22 por acción, en base a las acciones de media ponderada diluidas de 295.7 millones. This compares to second quarter 2018 Net Income of $49.4 million, or $0.16 per share, based on 311.3 million weighted average diluted shares.

Second quarter 2019 Net Income was impacted by a net $5.8 million of special charges that are detailed in the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures table attached. When adjusting for these charges, Adjusted Net Income for the second quarter of 2019 was $69.6 million, or $0.24 per diluted share. This compares to second quarter 2018 Adjusted Net Income of $54.5 million or $0.18 per diluted share.

"We reported strong results in the second quarter as our Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 160 basis points year-over-year to 17.2%. Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $267 million was ahead of our expectations driven by strong execution on pricing, performance, growth initiatives, and synergies" said President and CEO Michael Doss. "Pricing improved by $40 million during the quarter reflecting the benefits of our pricing initiatives. Importantly, our pricing to commodity input cost relationship was a positive $26 million in the quarter and $41 million in the first half of 2019. We are pleased to be increasing our 2019 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to reflect continued strong execution and a more favorable pricing to commodity input cost relationship. In addition, our commercial teams have been successful in customer negotiations to reduce our pricing lags to 6-months compared to 8-months previously. This reduction is an important milestone as it provides the opportunity to adjust pricing two times per year, on average, to better reflect market conditions. Overall, we operated well in the quarter generating $22 million in performance improvements driven by a continued emphasis on cost efficiencies, benefits from capital projects, and realization of synergies."

Acquisition of Artistic Carton Company

Graphic Packaging Holding Company also announced today that it has reached an agreement to acquire substantially all the assets of Artistic Carton Company through a subsidiary, subject to standard closing conditions. The business includes one coated recycled paperboard (CRB) mill located in White Pigeon, Michigan with annual production capacity of approximately 70,000 tons and two converting facilities located in Auburn, IN and Elgin, IL. The business generated $63 million in revenue during the twelve months ended June 30, 2019. The business is expected to generate approximately $10 million in annualized EBITDA including anticipated synergies over the next 12-18 months. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2019.

“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Artistic Carton as it will provide compelling optimization and growth opportunities for our paperboard mill and converting platforms in North America” said President and CEO Michael Doss. “The acquisition will drive converting end-market diversification, enhance our converting platform, and we expect will allow us to deliver significant synergies driven by paperboard integration, mill and converting manufacturing optimization, and supply chain efficiencies.”

Second Quarter 2019 Operating Results

Ventas netas 

Net Sales increased 3% to $1,552.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $1,510.9 million in the prior year period. El aumento de $41.9 millones fue impulsado por $39.8 millones de precios más altos y $16.3 millones de volumen/diversidad mejorado relacionado con las adquisiciones.  Estos beneficios fueron parcialmente compensados por $14.2 millones de cambio de moneda extranjera desfavorable.

Attached is supplemental data highlighting Net Tons Sold for the first and second quarters of 2019 and 2018.

EBITDA

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was $257.2 million, or $30.0 million higher than the second quarter of 2018. After adjusting both periods for business combinations and other special charges, Adjusted EBITDA increased $31.3 million to $267.1 million in the second quarter of 2019 from $235.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. When comparing against the prior year quarter, Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2019 was positively impacted by $39.8 million of higher pricing and $22.1 million of improved net operating performance. Estos beneficios fueron parcialmente compensados por $14.2 millones de inflación de costos de insumos de productos (principalmente la madera), $12.3 millones de otro tipo de inflación (principalmente mano de obra y beneficios), $3.0 millones de cambio de moneda extranjera desfavorable y $1.1 millones de volumen/combinación desfavorable.

Second quarter 2019 Income Tax Expense was $23.0 million, compared to a $18.5 million expense in the second quarter of 2018.

GRAPHIC PACKAGING HOLDING COMPANY
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The tables below set forth the calculation of the Company's earnings before interest expense, income tax expense, equity income of unconsolidated entities, depreciation and amortization, including pension amortization ("EBITDA"), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, Adjusted Cash Flow, Net Leverage Ratio and Total Net Debt. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income exclude charges (income) associated with: the Company's business combinations, facility shutdowns, extended mill outage, sale of assets and other special charges. The Company's management believes that the presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, Adjusted Cash Flow, and Net Leverage Ratio provides useful information to investors because these measures are regularly used by management in assessing the Company's performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, Adjusted Cash Flow, and Net Leverage Ratio are financial measures not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), and are not measures of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, Adjusted Cash Flow, and Net Leverage Ratio should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered substitutes for or superior to GAAP results. In addition, our EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share, Adjusted Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities, Adjusted Cash Flow, and Net Leverage Ratio may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as we do.
