Sealed Air Corp (SEE) on July 28, 2016 announced financial results for second quarter 2016.
Commenting on these results, Jerome A. Peribere, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In the second quarter, we delivered $1.7 billion in net sales by leveraging growth opportunities in targeted regions and end markets, offsetting other areas that were challenged by economic uncertainty. These efforts, coupled with our continued focus on new product adoption and operational disciplines, resulted in solid margin performance in our three core divisions. We are delivering on our 2016 objectives, and expect stronger performance in the second half of the year. This performance will be primarily driven by increased demand for our core product portfolio, recently introduced innovations, and accelerated growth in the global protein market and e-Commerce sector. We also anticipate less currency headwinds than previously forecasted.”
Second Quarter 2016 Highlights
Food Care net sales of $802 million decreased 5.2% as reported. Currency had a negative impact on Food Care net sales of 4.6%, or $39 million and the divestiture had a negative impact of 1.7%, or $15 million. On an organic basis, net sales increased 1.1% due to favorable price/mix of 0.4% and volume growth of 0.7%. Positive volume trends in North America and Europe, Middle East and Africa offset ongoing weakness in Latin America. Adjusted EBITDA of $163 million or 20.3% of net sales was attributable to favorable price/cost spread, positive volume trends and restructuring savings, which were more than offset by higher non-material manufacturing expenses, unfavorable currency translation, divestitures of non-core assets, and salary and wage inflation.

Currency had a negative impact on Diversey Care net sales of 3.0%, or $16 million in the quarter.

Our fastest growing regions in constant dollar sales were Asia Pacific with 6.8% growth and North America with 2.9% growth. Diversey Care’s Adjusted EBITDA was $86 million or 16.2% of net sales. Adjusted EBITDA performance was favorably impacted by a $5.6 million reimbursement of previously incurred environmental expenses, as well as favorable price/cost spread and restructuring savings, which were partially offset by unfavorable currency translation and salary and wage inflation.
Product Care net sales of $374 million in the second quarter decreased 2.5% as reported and 1.5% on a constant dollar basis.

This performance was primarily attributable to positive volume trends, manufacturing efficiencies and continued price discipline, which were more than offset by salary and wage inflation and unfavorable currency translation.
