ST. PAUL, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–3M (NYSE: MMM) today reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2019 results and provided its 2020 earnings outlook.

Our team executed well in the fourth quarter and delivered results that were in-line with our expectations,” said Mike Roman, 3M chairman and chief executive officer. “While we continued to manage challenges in certain key end markets, we generated solid underlying margins and robust free cash flow.”

Roman continued, “We also continue to build for the future, including the launch of our new global operating model which represents the next phase of our transformation journey. As a result of our actions, we are well positioned to improve our performance, return to growth and deliver a successful 2020.”

Fourth-Quarter Results

Sales grew 2.1 percent year-on-year to $8.1 billion. Organic local-currency sales declined 2.6 percent while acquisitions, net of divestitures, increased sales by 5.1 percent. Foreign currency translation reduced sales by 0.4 percent year-on-year.

Total sales grew 25.4 percent in Health Care, were flat in Consumer, with declines of 4.8 percent in Safety and Industrial, and 6.2 percent in Transportation and Electronics. Organic local-currency sales increased 0.2 percent in Consumer, with declines of 0.2 percent in Health Care, 2.8 percent in Safety and Industrial, and 5.9 percent in Transportation and Electronics.

On a geographic basis, total sales grew 7.4 percent in the U.S., 1.2 percent in Latin America/Canada, with declines of 1.7 percent in Asia Pacific and 2.0 percent in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). Organic local-currency sales were flat in Latin America/Canada, with declines of 2.7 percent in both Asia Pacific and EMEA and 2.9 percent in the U.S.

Fourth-quarter GAAP earnings were $1.66 per share, a decrease of 27 percent year-on-year. This result includes the company’s previously mentioned pre-tax restructuring charge of $134 million, or $0.20 per share, and a significant litigation-related pre-tax charge of $214 million, or $0.29 per share. Neither of these items was included in 3M’s prior earnings guidance. Fourth-quarter 2018 GAAP earnings were $2.27 per share which included a net charge for tax adjustments of $0.04 per share related to both the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) and its first-quarter 2018 legal settlement, and a $0.02 per share net benefit from a divestiture gain, net of actions.

Excluding the impact of the significant litigation-related charges, fourth quarter 2019 adjusted earnings were $1.95 per share versus $2.31 per share in the fourth quarter 2018, adjusting for last year’s tax-related items, as referenced in the “Supplemental Financial Information Non-GAAP Measures” section.

Fourth-quarter operating income was $1.3 billion with operating margins of 16.3 percent. These results include a combined negative operating income impact of $348 million, or a minus 4.3 percentage point operating margin impact, from the company’s restructuring and significant litigation-related charges.

The company’s operating cash flow was $2.3 billion, contributing to conversion of 186 percent of net income to free cash flow, as referenced in the “Supplemental Financial Information Non-GAAP Measures” section.

3M paid $828 million in cash dividends to shareholders and repurchased $164 million of its own shares during the quarter.

Accelerating the Pace of 3M’s Transformation Journey

Today, 3M announced the next step in its transformation journey, which includes a new global operating model and streamlined organizational structure.

As a result of these actions, 3M initiated a restructuring that will reduce approximately 1,500 positions, spanning all business groups, functions and geographies. On a pre-tax basis, 3M took a restructuring charge of $134 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The company expects annual pre-tax savings of $110 million to $120 million, with $40 million to $50 million in 2020.

3M today issued a separate press release with more details on these changes.

Significant Litigation-Related PFAS Update

During the fourth quarter, 3M updated its evaluation of customer-related PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) litigation based on continued, productive settlement discussions with multiple parties. As previously disclosed, 3M has been engaged in mediation and resolution negotiations in multiple cases.

In addition, during the fourth quarter the company updated its assessment of environmental matters and litigation related to its historical PFAS manufacturing operations and expanded its evaluation of other 3M sites that may have used certain PFAS-containing material and locations at which they were disposed.

As a result of these actions during the fourth quarter, the company recorded a significant litigation-related pre-tax charge of $214 million, or $0.29 cents per share.

Full-year 2019 GAAP earnings were $7.81 per share, a decrease of 12 percent. During the year, the company recorded charges totaling $1.29 per share for significant litigation-related charges and the deconsolidation of the company’s Venezuelan subsidiary. Full-year 2018 GAAP earnings were $8.89 per share, which included charges totaling $1.57 per share for significant litigation-related charges and measurement period accounting for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).

Excluding the above items, 2019 adjusted earnings were $9.10 per share versus 2018 adjusted earnings of $10.46, as referenced in the “Supplemental Financial Information Non-GAAP Measures” section. During 2019, the company recorded an earnings benefit of $0.21 per share from the divestiture of its gas and flame detection business.

Free cash flow and free cash flow conversion are not defined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Therefore, they should not be considered a substitute for income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment. It should not be inferred that the entire free cash flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures. The Company defines free cash flow conversion as free cash flow divided by net income attributable to 3M. The Company believes free cash flow and free cash flow conversion are meaningful to investors as they function as useful measures of performance and the Company uses these measures as an indication of the strength of the company and its ability to generate cash.

 (b)

 

Net debt is not defined under U.S. GAAP and may not be computed the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company defines net debt as total debt less the total of cash, cash equivalents and current and long-term marketable securities. 3M believes net debt is meaningful to investors as 3M considers net debt and its components to be an important indicator of liquidity and a guiding measure of capital structure strategy.
