CEO REMARKS

"Sherwin-Williams delivered strong fourth quarter results compared to the same period a year ago, including high single-digit percentage sales growth, significant year-over-year gross margin improvement, expanded adjusted operating margins in all three segments, strong double-digit adjusted diluted net income per share growth and strong EBITDA growth," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, John G. Morikis. "Our strong fourth quarter performance led to record full year sales, which increased 11.1% to $22.1 billion.  Full year adjusted diluted net income per share also increased to a record level. Additionally, we generated strong net operating cash in the year, which enabled us to invest $883 million in share repurchases, pay $619 million in dividends and deploy $1 billion to complete five acquisitions that will add to our solutions and capabilities.

"Our more than 61,000 employees delivered these results in another year of difficult operating conditions, including relentless cost inflation, less than optimal raw material availability, slowing economies, a war in Europe and COVID lockdowns in China. We refused to be deterred by these challenges and continued to do what we do best – serve our customers.

"Looking at our reportable segment performance in 2022, The Americas Group delivered double-digit sales growth in all customer segments, including the seventh consecutive year of double-digit growth in residential repaint. Consumer Brands Group faced extremely difficult conditions in Europe and Asia that impacted sales but continued to take actions that will drive enhanced future profitability. In Performance Coatings Group, sales increased in nearly all business units, and adjusted segment margin improved 250 basis points year-over-year."

Consolidated net sales increased primarily due to selling price increases in all segments and higher architectural sales volume in The Americas Group, partially offset by lower sales volumes outside of North America in the Consumer Brands and Performance Coatings Groups. Acquisitions increased consolidated net sales by approximately 1.5%, while currency translation rate changes decreased consolidated net sales by 2.0%.

Income before income taxes increased primarily due to selling price increases in all segments and higher sales volume in The Americas Group. These factors were partially offset by higher raw material costs across all three segments, increased SG&A spending in The Americas Group and Performance Coatings Group, costs associated with our previously announced targeted restructuring actions including non-cash trademark impairment charges and higher interest expense.

Diluted net income per share included a charge of $0.21 per share for acquisition-related amortization expense and charges totaling $0.20 per share related to restructuring actions including non-cash trademark impairments.

Adjusted segment profit excludes the impact of restructuring costs (including non-cash trademark impairments) and acquisition-related amortization expense. In CBG, restructuring costs were $41.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 and acquisition-related amortization expense was $18.8 million and $19.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

Net sales in CBG decreased primarily due to lower sales volume, partially offset by selling price increases in all regions. Currency translation rate changes decreased net sales by 1.7%. CBG segment profit decreased primarily due to the lower sales volume, increased raw material costs and supply chain inefficiencies, and the costs associated with targeted restructuring actions including non-cash trademark impairments. These factors were partially offset by selling price increases and good cost control. Restructuring costs reduced segment profit as a percent of net external sales by 750 basis points, and acquisition-related amortization expense reduced segment profit as a percent of net external sales by 340 basis points compared to 350 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Net sales in PCG increased due primarily to selling price increases in all end markets, partially offset by lower sales volumes in the APAC and EMEAI regions. Acquisitions increased PCG's net sales by approximately 4.5% in the quarter, while currency translation rate changes decreased net sales by 4.3%. PCG segment profit increased due primarily to selling price increases, partially offset by increased raw material costs and higher costs to support increased sales levels. Acquisition-related amortization expense reduced segment profit as a percent of net external sales by 310 basis points compared to 320 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2021, and restructuring costs reduced segment profit as a percent of net external sales by 130 basis points.

LIQUIDITY AND CASH FLOW

The Company generated $1.92 billion in net operating cash during the year. This strong cash generation, along with an increase in our short-term borrowings and long-term debt, allowed the Company to return cash of approximately $1.50 billion to our shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases, and close five acquisitions during the year. The Company purchased 3.4 million shares of its common stock during the year. At December 31, 2022, the Company had remaining authorization to purchase 45.2 million shares of its common stock through open market purchases.

"We enter 2023 with confidence and energy. We have clarity of mission, the right strategy and a focus on solutions for our customers," said Mr. Morikis. "Above all, we have the right people, and we expect to outperform the market in 2023 just as we have in the past.

"At the same time, we will not be immune from what we expect to be a very challenging demand environment in 2023. Visibility beyond our first half of the year is limited. On the architectural side, U.S. housing will be under significant pressure this year. Slowing existing home sales and continued high inflation also will be headwinds. On the industrial side, we have already seen a slowdown in Europe, and the same is beginning to appear in the U.S. across several sectors. In China, COVID remains a factor and the trajectory of economic recovery is difficult to map. The U.S housing slowdown also will impact some of our industrial businesses, namely Industrial Wood and Coil. Our team is focused on winning new accounts and growing share of wallet in this challenging environment, while leveraging our exposure in more resilient end markets, including residential repaint, property maintenance, auto refinish, and packaging.

"Against this backdrop, we expect 2023 first quarter consolidated net sales growth to be flat to up a mid-single digit percentage compared to the first quarter of 2022. For the full year 2023, relying on indicators we see at this time, we expect consolidated net sales to be down a mid-single digit percentage to flat compared to 2022. With annual sales at this level, we are introducing diluted net income per share guidance in the range of $6.79 to $7.59 per share, including acquisition-related amortization expense of $0.81 per share and restructuring expense of $0.25 to $0.35 per share. Full year 2023 adjusted diluted net income per share is expected to be in the range of $7.95 to $8.65 per share compared to $8.73 per share in 2022.

"We expect raw material costs to decrease by a low to mid-single digit percentage, while other costs, including wages, are expected to increase by a mid-to-high single digit percentage. We will continue to execute the targeted restructuring actions we announced last quarter, while investing in growth initiatives and maintaining our balanced capital allocation strategy. The slide deck accompanying our press release provides other assumptions underlying our guidance. Should we see the year playing out differently than our current assumptions, we will adjust expectations and leverage opportunities to drive improved performance. I am highly confident in our leadership team, which is deep and experienced and has been through many previous business cycles. We remain steadfast in our focus on creating shareholder value."

Regulation G Reconciliations

Management of the Company believes that investors' understanding of the Company's operating performance is enhanced by the disclosure of diluted net income per share excluding restructuring expense in 2022, the loss on the divestiture of Wattyl in 2021, and Valspar acquisition-related amortization expense. This adjusted earnings per share measurement is not in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). It should not be considered a substitute for earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The following tables reconcile diluted net income per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP to adjusted diluted net income per share.
