    , /PRNewswire/ -- 

    First quarter result in line with expectations and on track to deliver fiscal 2024 guidance

    Amcor CEO Ron Delia said: "We executed well in our fiscal 2024 first quarter, delivering financial results in-line with our expectations, including adjusted free cash flow ahead of last year's first quarter and putting us on track to deliver against our fiscal 2024 guidance, which we are reaffirming today.

    As anticipated, market conditions remain challenging with continued destocking and soft demand which we expect to continue in the near term. In this context, our teams remain laser focused on taking price and cost actions to offset inflation, aligning the cost base with market dynamics and managing working capital. We believe these ongoing efforts, combined with benefits later in the year from structural cost reduction initiatives and a lower interest expense headwind, leave us well placed to meet our expectations for a return to solid adjusted earnings per share growth in the second half and to grow at our long-term trend high-single digit rates thereafter.

    We remain confident in the strength of our market positions and underlying business.  We continue to actively pursue our strategy for long-term growth and value creation which includes investing in organic growth, pursuing M&A opportunities in faster growing, higher value markets or repurchasing shares and returning cash to shareholders through a compelling and growing dividend."

    Shareholder returns

    Amcor generates significant annual cash flow, maintains strong credit metrics, and is committed to an investment grade credit rating. The Company's strong annual cash flow and balance sheet provide substantial capacity to reinvest in the business for organic growth, pursue acquisitions or share repurchases and return cash to shareholders through a compelling and growing dividend.

    During the three months ended September 30, 2023, the Company returned approximately $205 million to shareholders through cash dividends and share repurchases, compared with approximately $180 million in the same period last year.

    Dividend

    The Amcor Board of Directors today declared a quarterly cash dividend of 12.5 cents per share (compared with 12.25 cents per share in the same quarter last year). The dividend will be paid in US dollars to holders of Amcor's ordinary shares trading on the NYSE. Holders of CDIs trading on the ASX will receive an unfranked dividend of 19.73 Australian cents per share, which reflects the quarterly dividend of 12.5 cents per share converted at an AUD:USD average exchange rate of 0.6336 over the five trading days ended October 27, 2023.

    The ex-dividend date will be November 21, 2023, the record date will be November 22, 2023 and the payment date will be December 12, 2023. 

    Share repurchases

    Amcor repurchased approximately 3 million shares during the three months ended September 30, 2023 for a total cost of approximately $30 million.

    Net sales of $2,568 million were 8% lower than last year on a reported basis, including a favorable impact of 3% related to movements in foreign exchange rates, an unfavorable impact of 3% related to items affecting comparability and an unfavorable impact of 2% related to the pass through of lower raw material costs of approximately $45 million.  On a comparable constant currency basis, net sales were 6% lower than last year reflecting price/mix benefits of approximately 2% and volumes were approximately 8% lower than last year.  Volume weakness continued to be broad based as a result of lower consumer demand and customer destocking. 

    In North America, net sales declined at high single digit rates driven by lower volumes. Volumes were higher in the condiments, pet care, snacks and confectionary categories and this was more than offset by lower volumes in categories including healthcare, meat and liquid beverage.

    In Europe, net sales declined at high single digit rates driven by lower volumes, partly offset by price/mix benefits.  Volumes were lower in healthcare, snacks and coffee and this was partly offset by higher volumes in pet care and confectionary. 

    Across the Asian region, net sales and volumes were broadly in line with the prior year. Volumes were lower in the South East Asia region and this was partly offset by volume growth in China and India.  In Latin America, net sales declined at high single digit rates, mainly driven by lower volumes.      

    Adjusted EBIT of $322 million was 5% lower than last year on a comparable constant currency basis, reflecting lower volumes partly offset by favorable operating cost performance and price/mix benefits.

    Net sales of $875 million were 6% lower than last year on a reported basis, including a favorable impact of 1% related to movements in foreign exchange rates and an unfavorable impact of 1% related to the pass through of lower raw material costs of approximately $10 million. On a comparable constant currency basis, net sales were 6% lower than last year reflecting price/mix benefits of approximately 1% and volumes were approximately 7% lower than last year.

    In North America, overall beverage volumes were 9% lower than last year as a result of lower consumer demand and continued customer destocking, including in hot fill beverage containers where volumes were down 5%. Specialty container volumes were lower than last year.

    In Latin America, volumes grew at mid single digit rates compared with last year, with growth in Brazil and Colombia partly offset by lower volumes in Mexico.

    Adjusted EBIT of $62 million was 6% lower than last year on a comparable constant currency basis, reflecting lower volumes partly offset by price/mix benefits and favorable cost performance.

    Net interest and income tax expense

    For the three months ended September 30, 2023, net interest expense of $75 million was $25 million higher than last year, reflecting higher interest rates. GAAP income tax expense was $39 million compared with $58 million last year. Excluding amounts related to non-GAAP adjustments, adjusted tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $54 million compared with $68 million last year. Adjusted tax expense represents an effective tax rate of 19.1%.

    Adjusted Free Cash Flow

    For the three months ended September 30, 2023, adjusted free cash outflow was $227 million, in line with expectations and compared with an outflow of $400 million last year. Compared with last year, the improvement primarily reflects benefits from inventory reduction initiatives.

    Net debt was $6,573 million at September 30, 2023. Leverage, measured as net debt divided by adjusted trailing twelve month EBITDA, was 3.3 times and in line with expectations. Leverage is expected to return to approximately 3.0 times at June 30, 2024.

    Fiscal 2024 Guidance reaffirmed

    For the twelve month period ending June 30, 2024, the Company continues to expect:

    • Adjusted EPS of 67 to 71 cents per share which includes:
      • Comparable constant currency earnings made up of underlying business performance down low single digit % to up low single digit %, a benefit of approximately 2% from share repurchases, and a negative impact of approximately 6% related to higher estimated net interest and tax expense;
      • A negative impact of approximately 3% related to the sale of the Company's three plants in Russia on December 23, 2022; and
      • A benefit of up to 2% related to currency translation, assuming current rates prevail through the balance of fiscal 2024.
      • The Company expects adjusted EPS on a reported basis in the first half of fiscal 2024 to be down in the mid-teens % compared with the first half of fiscal 2023, primarily due to lower volumes and the residual headwinds related to the sale of the Russia plants and higher interest expense.  In the second half of fiscal 2024, adjusted EPS is expected to be up mid-single digits % compared with the second half of fiscal 2023, benefiting in part from cost saving initiatives and increased earnings leverage resulting from price and cost actions taken in fiscal 2023 and 2024.
    • Adjusted Free Cash Flow of approximately $850 million to $950 million, representing solid growth over fiscal 2023.
    • Approximately $70 million of cash to be allocated towards share repurchases as part of the program previously announced in fiscal 2023.

    Amcor's guidance contemplates a range of factors which create a degree of uncertainty and complexity when estimating future financial results. Further information can be found under 'Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements' in this release.

    Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

None of Amcor or any of its respective directors, executive officers, or advisors provide any representation, assurance, or guarantee that the occurrence of the events expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements will actually occur. Risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from expectations include, but are not limited to: changes in consumer demand patterns and customer requirements; the loss of key customers, a reduction in production requirements of key customers; significant competition in the industries and regions in which Amcor operates; failure by Amcor to expand its business; challenging current and future global economic conditions, including the Russia-Ukraine conflict and inflation; impact of operating internationally; price fluctuations or shortages in the availability of raw materials, energy, and other inputs; disruptions to production, supply, and commercial risks, including counterparty credit risks, which may be exacerbated in times of economic volatility;  pandemics, epidemics, or other disease outbreaks; an inability to attract and retain our global executive management team and our skilled workforce; costs and liabilities related to  environment, health, and safety ("EHS") laws and regulations as well as changes in the global climate; labor disputes and an inability to renew collective bargaining agreements at acceptable terms; risks related to climate change; cybersecurity risks; failures or disruptions in information technology systems; rising interest rates; a significant increase in indebtedness or a downgrade in the credit rating; foreign exchange rate risk; a significant write-down of goodwill and/or other intangible assets; a failure to maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting; inability of Amcor's insurance policies to provide adequate protections; challenges to or the loss of intellectual property rights; litigation, including product liability claims or regulatory developments; increasing scrutiny and changing expectations from investors, customers, and governments with respect to Amcor's Environmental, Social and Governance practices and commitments resulting in increased costs; changing government regulations in environmental, health, and safety matters; changes in tax laws or changes in our geographic mix of earnings; and other risks and uncertainties identified from time to time in Amcor's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including without limitation, those described under Item 1A. "Risk Factors" of Amcor's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 and any subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. You can obtain copies of Amcor's filings with the SEC for free at the SEC's website (www.sec.gov). Forward-looking statements included herein are made only as of the date hereof and Amcor does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, or any other information in this communication, as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, or to correct any inaccuracies or omissions in them which become apparent, except as expressly required by law. All forward-looking statements in this communication are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement.

    Presentation of non-GAAP information

    Included in this release are measures of financial performance that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures include adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA (calculated as earnings before interest and tax and depreciation and amortization), adjusted EBIT and EBIT (calculated as earnings before interest and tax), adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted free cash flow and net debt.  In arriving at these non-GAAP measures, we exclude items that either have a non-recurring impact on the income statement or which, in the judgment of our management, are items that, either as a result of their nature or size, could, were they not singled out, potentially cause investors to extrapolate future performance from an improper base. Note that while amortization of acquired intangible assets is excluded from non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, the revenue of the acquired entities and all other expenses unless otherwise stated, are reflected in our non-GAAP financial performance earnings measures. While not all inclusive, examples of these items include:

    • material restructuring programs, including associated costs such as employee severance, pension and related benefits, impairment of property and equipment and other assets, accelerated depreciation, termination payments for contracts and leases, contractual obligations, and any other qualifying costs related to restructuring plans;
    • material sales and earnings from disposed or ceased operations and any associated profit or loss on sale of businesses or subsidiaries;
    • changes in the fair value of economic hedging instruments on commercial paper;
    • significant pension settlements;
    • impairments in goodwill and equity method investments;
    • material acquisition compensation and transaction costs such as due diligence expenses, professional and legal fees, and integration costs;
    • material purchase accounting adjustments for inventory;
    • amortization of acquired intangible assets from business combination;
    • gains or losses on significant property and divestitures and significant property and other impairments, net of insurance recovery;
    • certain regulatory and legal matters;
    • impacts from hyperinflation accounting; and
    • impacts related to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

    Amcor also evaluates performance on a comparable constant currency basis, which measures financial results assuming constant foreign currency exchange rates used for translation based on the average rates in effect for the comparable prior year period. In order to compute comparable constant currency results, we multiply or divide, as appropriate, current-year U.S. dollar results by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then multiply or divide, as appropriate, those amounts by the prior-year average foreign exchange rates. We then adjust for other items affecting comparability. While not all inclusive, examples of items affecting comparability include the difference between sales or earnings in the current period and the prior period related to disposed, or ceased operations. Comparable constant currency net sales performance also excludes the impact from passing through movements in raw material costs.  

    Management has used and uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the Company's reporting segments and certain of the measures are used as a component of Amcor's Board of Directors' measurement of Amcor's performance for incentive compensation purposes. Amcor believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful to enable investors to perform comparisons of current and historical performance of the Company. For each of these non-GAAP financial measures, a reconciliation to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure has been provided herein. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an alternative to results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis as we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty the ultimate outcome and timing of certain significant forward-looking items without unreasonable effort.  These items include but are not limited to the impact of foreign exchange translation, restructuring program costs, asset impairments, possible gains and losses on the sale of assets, and certain tax related events. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could have a material impact on U.S. GAAP earnings and cash flow measures for the guidance period.

    Dividends

    Amcor has received a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow the Company to defer processing conversions between its ordinary share and CDI registers from November 21, 2023 to November 22, 2023 inclusive.
