FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

3M Delivers Record Third-Quarter Results

 

Highlights:

—            Earnings per share of $1.78, a third-quarter record

—            All-time record quarterly sales of $7.9 billion

—            Organic local-currency sales growth of 5.8 percent

—            Operating income margins of 22.0 percent

—            Returned $2.0 billion to shareholders via dividends and gross share repurchases

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — October 24, 2013 - 3M (NYSE: MMM) today reported third-quarter earnings of $1.78 per share, an increase of 7.9 percent versus the third quarter of 2012. Sales grew 5.6 percent year-on-year to $7.9 billion. Organic local-currency sales grew 5.8 percent, acquisitions added 1.5 percent to sales and currency impacts reduced sales by 1.7 percent year-on-year.

 

Operating income was $1.7 billion and operating income margins for the quarter were 22.0 percent. Third-quarter net income was $1.2 billion and free cash flow was $0.7 billion.

 

The company paid $431 million in cash dividends to shareholders and repurchased $1.54 billion of its own shares during the quarter.

 

Organic local-currency sales growth was 8.1 percent in Safety and Graphics, 6.8 percent in Health Care, 6.2 percent in Industrial, 4.2 percent in Consumer and 3.8 in Electronics and Energy. On a geographic basis, organic local-currency sales grew 10.5 percent in Latin America/Canada, 6.8 percent in Asia Pacific, 4.5 percent in the U.S. and 4.3 percent in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

 

“The 3M team delivered another strong performance in the third quarter,” said Inge G. Thulin, 3M’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. “All business groups generated positive organic sales growth and operating margins above 20 percent. At the same time, we further strengthened the company through increased investments in innovation, commercialization and manufacturing. Finally, we returned $2 billion of cash to our shareholders during the quarter via dividends and gross share repurchases, or $4.8 billion through nine months of the year.”

 

3M updated its full-year performance expectations. The company anticipates 2013 earnings to be in the range of $6.65 to $6.75 per share versus a previous expectation of $6.60 to $6.85 per share. 3M expects full year organic local-currency sales growth of 3 to 4 percent versus a previous expectation of 2 to 5 percent. In addition, the company expects that free cash flow conversion will be approximately 90 percent.

(a)              Free cash flow is not defined under U.S. GAAP. Therefore, it should not be considered a substitute for income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with 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 believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and uses this measure as an indication of the strength of the company and its ability to generate cash.

(b)              The company uses various working capital measures that place emphasis and focus on certain working capital assets and liabilities. 3M’s net working capital index is defined as quarterly net sales multiplied by four, divided by ending net accounts receivable plus inventory less accounts payable. This measure is not recognized under U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

3M Company and Subsidiaries

BUSINESS SEGMENTS

(Dollars in millions)

(Unaudited)

 

Effective in the first quarter of 2013, 3M completed a realignment of its business groups (segments) to better serve global markets and customers. This realignment included:

 

·                       The alignment of divisions into five business groups (segments) as further described below.

·                       The combination of certain existing divisions into new divisions. These included the Traffic Safety and Security Division (reflecting the combination of the former Traffic Safety Systems Division and Security Systems Division) and the Optical Systems Division (reflecting the combination of the former Optical Systems Division and Mobile Interactive Solutions Division).

·                       The movement of certain product lines between various divisions.

 

In addition to the above, there were also adjustments for dual credit reporting to reflect the realigned structure. The new structure is comprised of five business segments: Industrial, Safety and Graphics, Electronics and Energy, Health Care, and Consumer.

 

Industrial: This business segment, previously referred to as Industrial and Transportation, is largely unchanged, except for the transfer of the Renewable Energy Division to the Electronics and Energy business segment.

 

Safety and Graphics: This business segment includes Architectural Markets, Building and Commercial Services, Commercial Graphics, Industrial Mineral Products, Personal Safety, and Traffic Safety and Security. This new business segment also reflects the movement of certain product lines between various divisions.

 

Electronics and Energy: This business segment includes Communication Markets, Electrical Markets, Electronics Markets Materials, Electronic Solutions, Infrastructure Protection, Optical Systems, Renewable Energy, and 3M Touch Systems. This new business segment also reflects the movement of certain product lines between various divisions.

 

Health Care: This business segment is largely unchanged, except for the movement of certain product lines between various divisions.

 

Consumer: This business segment, previously referred to as Consumer and Office, is largely unchanged, except for the movement of certain product lines between various divisions.

 

The financial information presented herein reflects, for all periods presented, the impact of this realignment. Refer to 3M’s Current Report on Form 8-K furnished on March 1, 2013 and 3M’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 16, 2013 for additional information concerning the business segment and geographic area realignments effective in the first quarter of 2013.
