Bemis Co. Q2 Profit Rises; Adjusted EPS Tops Views, But Revenues Miss; Narrows 2013 Outlook (BMS)Jul 25, 2013Before the bell on Thursday, packaging materials supplier Bemis Company, Inc. (BMS) reported a 26% year-over-year increase in second quarter earnings, despite slightly lower sales. Though adjusted earnings beat analysts' estimates, revenues came up short of views. The Neenah, Wisconsin-based company posted a second quarter net income of $53.1 million, or 51 cents per share, up from the $42.3 million, or 40 cents per share, earned in the same period a year ago. On an adjusted basis, the company said it earned 61 cents per share in the most recent quarter, up from 54 cents per share earned a year ago. On average, analysts were expecting the company to earn 59 cents per share in the quarter. Bemis' second quarter revenues came in at $1.297 billion, down slightly from the $1.313 billion in revenues posted a year ago. Analysts were expecting the company to see $1.32 billion in revenues in the most recent quarter. “This quarter, we closed the last of the nine facilities in our facility consolidation program, achieved our highest gross margin since 2009, and reduced working capital levels,” said Henry Theisen, Bemis Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our focused efforts to improve our long term sales mix and return on invested capital trends have been effective. Stronger unit volumes in high barrier liquid packaging reflect the trend toward flexible pouches in the United States. We continue to make strategic growth investments in both Latin America and China which we expect to deliver sales growth in our Global Packaging segment beginning in 2014. We achieved double digit growth in adjusted earnings per share this quarter in spite of Brazilian currency headwinds and continued weakness in our European pressure sensitive graphic products market.” Looking forward, the company said it expects third quarter earnings to come in between 57 cents and 63 cents per share. Analysts expect the company to earn 65 cents per share in the third quarter. For the fiscal year, Bemis narrowed its earnings outlook. The company now sees earnings coming in between $2.30 and $2.40 per share for the year, versus the previous outlook of earnings coming in between $2.30 and $2.45 per share. Analysts expect the company to earn $2.38 per share in 2013. Bemis Company shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Thursday. The stock has gained 23.61% year-to-date.

Bemis Downgraded to "Hold" at KeyBanc (BMS)Jul 8, 2013KeyBanc announced on Monday that it has lowered its rating on Bemis Company, Inc. (BMS) to a "Hold." The firm has downgraded BMS from a "Buy" to a "Hold" as analysts see limited upside. Analyst Adam J. Josephson commented, "in the quarters to come, we think Bemis’ results will largely depend on the extent to which U.S. packaged volumes improve, keeping in mind that not all volume is created equal. Industry volume has been on the upswing in 2013, and General Mills’ and ConAgra's recent results were no exception; however, we do not expect Bemis' volume and sales to meaningfully exceed consensus estimates in the near future, and consequently, we see limited upside to consensus estimates." Bemis shares were mostly flat during Monday morning trading. The stock is up 18% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Bemis Company, Inc. (BMS) have a 2.63% yield based on Friday's closing price of $39.60. Bemis Company, Inc. (BMS) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
