World's Top ten Paints Companies 2010 Annual Report

Despite the economic upturn in 2010, risks still remain for a sustained recovery. The high debt level of many countries is threatening the stability of the financial and banking system. The need to trim government spending around the world will have an impact on demand, as will the winding down of national stimulus programs and the end of inventory restocking.

––volatile raw materials and currency markets,
––excess capacities,
––growing geopolitical tensions, and
––protectionism in the form of new trade barriers

PPG quoted Charles E. Bunch, chairman and CEO to reveal the annual summary of the development of PPG in 2010 and future prospects.
PPG Industries financial report shows a record profit was mainly driven by the following factors:
- Outstanding sales performance benefited from continued growth in emerging regions
- Industry continues to make slow recovery of the total sales volume increased by 6%
- Low cost structure continue to drive global profitable growth
- The company plans with a strong balance sheet to further promote the profitable growth
“Our record earnings reflect the benefits of the strategic initiatives we’ve undertaken to broaden our geographic footprint – especially in high-growth emerging regions – and the diversity of the end-use markets we serve,” said Charles E. Bunch, PPG chairman and CEO. “In addition, our lower overall cost structure has enabled us to leverage the ongoing, gradual global industrial recovery. We achieved these record results despite persistent raw material cost inflation and anemic construction markets in the developed economies of the world.”
Bunch said that PPG’s segment earnings grew by more than versus the same period last year. “Higher industrial activity resulted in sizable gains in our Industrial Coatings and Commodity Chemicals segments, and in our fiber glass business, all of which are experiencing strong demand recovery from the recession. Also, our Performance Coatings and Optical and Specialty Materials segments delivered earnings records, once again growing by double-digit percentages. The Architectural Coatings – EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) segment earnings fell slightly due primarily to negative currency conversion.” He said that PPG’s overall sales volumes grew 6 percent over 2009 even with a decline in the company’s architectural coatings businesses serving the mature regions.
“The shift of our portfolio to focus on coatings and optical products has significantly reduced our capital intensity. As a result, we have additional cash for earnings growth opportunities and to return to shareholders. Year-to-date, we have returned nearly 80 percent of our cash from operations to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases,” Bunch said. PPG raised its quarterly dividend to 55 cents per share on July 15, and it has spent about $275 million year-to-date to acquire 4.2 million shares of PPG stock at an average per-share price of approximately $65.
Looking forward, Bunch said, “While we anticipate continued gradual recovery in economic conditions, Our focus continues to be on operational excellence as we remain committed to cost management. We are also working diligently to offset higher raw material costs.” He said that PPG is implementing price increases for many of its products, including several in the Commodity Chemicals segment.
Bunch concluded, “We are planning to use our strong balance sheet over the next several quarters to further accelerate earnings growth through ‘bolt-on’ acquisitions and continued, selective share repurchases. We delivered record results despite the fact that the sales in our businesses have yet to fully recover. This, combined with our continued organic growth prospects and strong financial flexibility, give me optimism about our future earnings potential.”
