CLEVELAND, Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyOne Corporation (NYSE: POL) today reported its fourth quarter and full year results for 2018. GAAP earnings per share were $0.15 in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $0.43 in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted earnings per share were $0.41 in the fourth quarter of 2018, in line with the fourth quarter of 2017. Special items for the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily included a mark-to-market pension adjustment and environmental related costs (see Attachment 3).

Full year GAAP earnings per share were $2.00 in 2018 compared to $2.11 in 2017.  Adjusted earnings per share in 2018 increased 10% to $2.43, from $2.21 in 2017.

"For the ninth consecutive year we have delivered adjusted EPS growth.  This is a testament to the execution of our four-pillar strategy, our world-class service and the dedication of our global associates," said Robert M. Patterson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, PolyOne Corporation. "Our investments in commercial resources and specialty acquisitions continue to drive our expansion with our Color, Additives and Inks segment leading the way. For the year, Color increased revenue and operating income by 17% and 14%, respectively."

Mr. Patterson added, "Overall, I am incredibly pleased with our performance this year when considering that we incurred significantly higher raw material and logistics costs.  We also overcame a more recent slowdown in demand in certain end markets and geographies which negatively impacted the second half of the year."

Softening demand conditions in the fourth quarter most heavily impacted the Performance Products and Solutions (PP&S) and Specialty Engineered Materials (SEM) segments. Specifically, end markets negatively impacting PP&S were building & construction and appliance. SEM was impacted by a more recent decline in demand in Europe and Asia primarily in transportation and consumer end markets.

Mr. Patterson cited the following key milestones from 2018:

  • Reduced associate injuries by 19% and had the safest year in the company's history
  • Certified as an ACC Responsible Care® organization for outstanding environmental, health and safety performance
  • Delivered our ninth consecutive year of adjusted EPS growth
  • Increased our dividend by 11% and for the seventh consecutive year in a row
  • Purchased 3.4 million shares of PolyOne stock
  • Acquired two specialty companies, IQAP and PlastiComp, and completed a third acquisition, Fiber-Line, in January of 2019
  • For the first time in our history, certified as a Great Place to Work® in the U.S. by the Great Place to Work Institute

Commenting on the company's outlook, Mr. Patterson said, "Many companies are citing softening conditions in certain end markets and geographies.  We certainly saw this at the end of 2018 and expect these conditions to continue into the beginning of this year.  Fortunately, with the investments we have made, the breadth of our portfolio of technologies, and the organization we have in place, we are better positioned to navigate these near-term dynamics than ever before."

Mr. Patterson added, "Most importantly, we will continue to focus on executing our four-pillar strategy so that we can serve our customers with excellence and deliver for them and our shareholders over the long term."

Senior management uses comparisons of adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to PolyOne shareholders and diluted adjusted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations attributable to PolyOne shareholders, excluding special items, to assess performance and facilitate comparability of results. Senior management believes these measures are useful to investors because they allow for comparison to PolyOne's performance in prior periods without the effect of items that, by their nature, tend to obscure PolyOne's operating results due to the potential variability across periods based on timing, frequency and magnitude. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or solely as alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Below is a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

PolyOne Corporation

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)

(In millions, except per share data)


Senior management uses gross margin before special items and operating income before special items to assess performance and allocate resources because senior management believes that these measures are useful in understanding current profitability levels and how it may serve as a basis for future performance. In addition, operating income before the effect of special items is a component of PolyOne annual and long-term employee incentive plans and is used in debt covenant computations. Senior management believes these measures are useful to investors because they allow for comparison to PolyOne's performance in prior periods without the effect of items that, by their nature, tend to obscure PolyOne's operating results due to the potential variability across periods based on timing, frequency and magnitude. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or solely as alternatives to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Below is a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. See Attachment 3 for a definition and summary of special items.
