Safe Harbor Statement
The matters discussed in this Quarterly Report contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which are not statements of historical fact, contain estimates, assumptions, projections and/or expectations regarding future events, that may or may not occur. Words such as “aim,” “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “foresee,” “guidance,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “objective,” “plan,” “potential,” “project,” “seek,” “shall,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or variations thereof, and other expressions that refer to future events and trends, identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements, and financial or other business targets, are subject to certain risks and uncertainties.
We believe that the most significant risk factors that could affect our financial performance in the near term include: (i) the impacts to underlying demand for our products from global economic conditions, political uncertainty, and changes in environmental standards and governmental regulations, including as a result of COVID-19; (ii) the cost and availability of raw materials; (iii) competitors’ actions, including pricing, expansion in key markets, and product offerings; (iv) the degree to which higher costs can be offset with productivity measures and/or passed on to customers through price increases, without a significant loss of volume; (v) foreign currency fluctuations; and (vi) the execution and integration of acquisitions.
The more significant risks and uncertainties that may impact us are discussed in more detail under “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 23, 2022, and subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. Actual results and trends may differ materially from historical or anticipated results depending on a variety of factors, including but not limited to, risks and uncertainties related to the following:
Our Business – fluctuations in demand affecting sales to customers; fluctuations in the cost and availability of raw materials and energy; changes in our markets due to competitive conditions, technological developments, environmental standards, laws and regulations, and customer preferences; the impact of competitive products and pricing; execution and integration of acquisitions; selling prices; customer and supplier concentrations or consolidations; financial condition of distributors; outsourced manufacturers; product and service quality; timely development and market acceptance of new products, including sustainable or sustainably-sourced products; investment in development activities and new production facilities; successful implementation of new manufacturing technologies and installation of manufacturing equipment; our ability to generate sustained productivity improvement; our ability to achieve and sustain targeted cost reductions; and collection of receivables from customers
International Operations – worldwide and local economic and market conditions; changes in political conditions, including those related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine; and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and other risks associated with foreign operations, including in emerging markets
COVID-19
Income Taxes – fluctuations in tax rates; changes in tax laws and regulations, and uncertainties associated with interpretations of such laws and regulations; retention of tax incentives; outcome of tax audits; and the realization of deferred tax assets
Information Technology – disruptions in information technology systems or data security breaches, including cyber-attacks or other intrusions to network security; and successful installation of new or upgraded information technology systems
Human Capital – recruitment and retention of employees; and collective labor arrangements
Our Indebtedness – credit risks; our ability to obtain adequate financing arrangements and maintain access to capital; fluctuations in interest rates; volatility of financial markets; and compliance with our debt covenants
Ownership of Our Stock – potential significant variability of our stock price and amounts of future dividends and share repurchases
Legal and Regulatory Matters – protection and infringement of intellectual property; impact of legal and regulatory proceedings, including with respect to environmental, anti-corruption, health and safety, and trade compliance
Other Financial Matters – fluctuations in pension costs and goodwill impairment
Our forward-looking statements are made only as of the date of this Form 10-Q. We assume no duty to update these forward-looking statements to reflect new, changed or unanticipated events or circumstances, other than as may be required by law.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Note 1. General
The unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are presented as permitted by Article 10 of Regulation S-X and do not contain certain information included in the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K, which should be read in conjunction with this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. These unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements contain all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature necessary for a fair statement of our interim results. Interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of future results. These unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect our current estimates and assumptions affecting (i) our reported amounts of assets and liabilities and related disclosures as of the date of the financial statements and (ii) our reported amounts of sales and expenses during the reporting periods presented.
Fiscal Periods
The three and nine months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021 each consisted of thirteen-week and thirty-nine week periods, respectively.
Note 2. Acquisitions
2022 Acquisitions
During January 2022, we completed our acquisitions of TexTrace AG ("TexTrace"), a Switzerland-based technology developer specializing in custom-made woven and knitted radio-frequency identification ("RFID") products that can be sewn onto or inserted into garments, and Rietveld Serigrafie B.V. and Rietveld Screenprinting Serigrafi Baski Matbaa Tekstil Ithalat Ihracat Sanayi ve Ticaret Limited Sirketi (collectively, "Rietveld"), a Netherlands-based provider of external embellishment solutions and application and printing methods for performance brands and team sports in Europe. These acquisitions expand the product portfolio in our Retail Branding and Information Solutions ("RBIS") reportable segment. The acquisitions of TexTrace and Rietveld are referred to collectively as the "2022 Acquisitions."
The aggregate purchase consideration for the 2022 Acquisitions was approximately $35 million. We funded the 2022 Acquisitions using cash and commercial paper borrowings. In addition to the cash paid at closing, the sellers in one of these acquisitions are eligible for earn-out payments of up to $30 million, subject to the acquired company achieving certain post-acquisition performance targets. As of the acquisition date, we included an estimate of the fair value of these earn-out payments in the aggregate purchase consideration.
The 2022 Acquisitions were not material, individually or in the aggregate, to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Vestcom Acquisition
On August 31, 2021, we completed our acquisition of CB Velocity Holdings, LLC (“Vestcom”), an Arkansas-based provider of shelf-edge pricing, productivity and consumer engagement solutions for retailers and consumer packaged goods companies, for purchase consideration of $1.47 billion. We funded this acquisition using a combination of cash and proceeds from commercial paper borrowings and issuances of senior notes. Refer to Note 4, "Debt," to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.
We believe Vestcom’s solutions expand our position in high value categories and add channel access and data management capabilities to our RBIS reportable segment.

In connection with the 2022 Acquisitions, we acquired approximately $21 million of identifiable finite-lived intangible assets, which consisted of patented and other developed technology as well as customer relationships.
Amortization expense for all finite-lived intangible assets resulting from business acquisitions was $20.4 million and $11.7 million for the three months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, respectively, and $61.5 million and $24.6 million for the nine months ended October 1, 2022 and October 2, 2021, respectively.

Note 4. Debt
In August 2021, we issued $500 million of senior notes, due February 15, 2032, which bear an interest rate of 2.250%, payable semiannually in arrears. Our net proceeds from this issuance, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were $493.8 million. Additionally, in August 2021, we issued $300 million of senior notes, due August 15, 2024, which we can repay without penalty and bear an interest rate of 0.850%, payable semiannually in arrears. Our net proceeds from this issuance, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses, were $298.1 million. We used the net proceeds from these two debt issuances to finance a portion of the Vestcom acquisition.
The estimated fair value of our long-term debt is primarily based on the credit spread above U.S. Treasury securities or euro government bond securities, as applicable, on notes with similar rates, credit ratings and remaining maturities. The fair value of short-term borrowings, which include commercial paper issuances and short-term lines of credit, approximates their carrying value given the short duration of these obligations. The fair value of our total debt was $2.83 billion at October 1, 2022 and $3.25 billion at January 1, 2022. Fair values were determined based primarily on Level 2 inputs, which are inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable.
Our $800 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”) contains a financial covenant requiring that we maintain a specified ratio of total debt in relation to a certain measure of income. As of both October 1, 2022 and January 1, 2022, we were in compliance with this financial covenant. No balance was outstanding under the Revolver as of October 1, 2022 or January 1, 2022.
Note 5. Cost Reduction Actions
2019/2020 Actions
During the nine months ended October 1, 2022, we recorded $8.8 million in restructuring charges related to our 2019/2020 actions. These charges consisted of severance and related costs for the reduction of approximately 430 positions at numerous locations across our company. These actions, which were primarily taken in our RBIS reportable segment, largely related to global headcount and footprint reductions. Accruals for severance and related costs, as well as lease cancellation costs, were not material as of October 1, 2022.
Note 6. Financial Instruments
We enter into foreign exchange hedge contracts to reduce our risk from foreign exchange rate fluctuations associated with receivables, payables, loans and firm commitments denominated in certain foreign currencies that arise primarily as a result of our operations outside the U.S. We also enter into futures contracts to hedge certain price fluctuations for a portion of our anticipated domestic purchases of natural gas. The impact of these foreign exchange and commodities hedge activities on the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements was not material.
In March 2020, we entered into U.S. dollar to euro cross-currency swap contracts with a total notional amount of $250 million to have the effect of converting the fixed-rate U.S. dollar-denominated debt to euro-denominated debt, including semiannual interest payments and the payment of principal at maturity. During the term of the contract, which ends on April 30, 2030, we pay fixed-rate interest in euros and receive fixed-rate interest in U.S. dollars. These contracts have been designated as cash flow hedges. The fair value of these contracts was $29.8 million as of October 1, 2022, which was included in "Other Assets" and $(10.3) million as of January 1, 2022, which was included in “Long-term retirement benefits and other liabilities” in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Refer to Note 10, “Fair Value Measurements,” to the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.
We recorded no ineffectiveness from our cross-currency swap to earnings during the three or nine months ended October 1, 2022 or October 2, 2021.

Note 7. Taxes Based on Income
The following table summarizes our income before taxes, provision for income taxes, and effective tax rate:
Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended
(Dollars in millions)October 1, 2022October 2, 2021October 1, 2022October 2, 2021
Income before taxes$272.5 $224.4 $830.1 $748.6 
Provision for income taxes51.0 59.2 195.9 187.7 
Effective tax rate18.7 %26.4 %23.6 %25.1 %
Our provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended October 1, 2022 included $2.8 million and $16.5 million, respectively, of net tax charge related to the tax on global intangible low-taxed income (“GILTI”) of our foreign subsidiaries and the recognition of foreign withholding taxes on current year earnings, partially offset by the benefit from foreign-derived intangible income (“FDII”). Our provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended October 1, 2022 also included the following discrete items: (i) $17.3 million of return-to-provision benefit, including $11.9 million related to a GILTI exclusion election and a lower net tax charge from other international inclusion items upon completion of our 2021 U.S. federal tax return; (ii) the benefit from the settlement of certain foreign tax audits for tax years 2011-2014; and (iii) the return-to-provision benefit from treating the interest portion of the Brazil indirect tax credit reclaimed in 2021 as non-taxable, pursuant to a recent Brazilian court decision. In addition, our provision for income taxes for the nine months ended October 1, 2022 included $6.4 million of net discrete tax benefit primarily from decreases in certain tax reserves, including interest and penalties, as a result of closing tax years.
Our provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended October 2, 2021 included $7 million and $21 million, respectively, of net tax charge related to the tax on GILTI of our foreign subsidiaries and the recognition of foreign withholding taxes on current year earnings, partially offset by the benefit from FDII. Our provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended October 2, 2021 also included $11.3 million of return-to-provision benefit, including $8.7 million related to a GILTI exclusion election and a higher FDII deduction upon completion of our 2020 U.S. federal tax return. In addition, our provision for income taxes for the nine months ended October 2, 2021 included $14.1 million of return-to-provision benefit related to a GILTI exclusion election made on our amended 2018 U.S. federal tax return.
In 2020, the U.S. Department of Treasury issued final regulations that provide certain U.S. taxpayers with an annual election to exclude certain foreign income subject to a high effective tax rate from their GILTI inclusions. We have not yet determined whether to make the election for tax year 2022. We continue to evaluate the impact of the election and currently anticipate that the benefit from making this election on our 2022 U.S. federal tax return may be significant.
The amount of income taxes we pay is subject to ongoing audits by taxing jurisdictions around the world. Our estimate of the potential outcome of any uncertain tax issue is subject to our assessment of the relevant risks, facts, and circumstances existing at the time. We believe that we have adequately provided for reasonably foreseeable outcomes related to these matters. However, our future results may include favorable or unfavorable adjustments to our estimated tax liabilities in the period the assessments are made or resolved, which may impact our effective tax rate. The final determination of tax audits and any related legal proceedings could materially differ from the amounts currently reflected in our tax provision for income taxes and the related liabilities. To date, we and our U.S. subsidiaries have completed the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") Compliance Assurance Process through 2018. With limited exceptions, we are no longer subject to income tax examinations by tax authorities for years prior to 2010.
It is reasonably possible that, during the next 12 months, we may realize a net decrease in our uncertain tax positions, including interest and penalties, of approximately $5 million, primarily as a result of closing tax years.

Investments include fixed income securities (primarily U.S. government and corporate debt securities) measured at fair value using quoted prices/bids and a money market fund measured at fair value using net asset value. As of October 1, 2022, investments of $0.8 million and $29.8 million were included in “Cash and cash equivalents” and “Other current assets,” respectively, in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. As of January 1, 2022, investments of $0.5 million and $33.4 million were included in “Cash and cash equivalents” and “Other current assets,” respectively, in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Derivatives that are exchange-traded are measured at fair value using quoted market prices and classified within Level 1 of the valuation hierarchy. Derivatives measured based on foreign exchange rate inputs that are readily available in public markets are classified within Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy. Bank drafts (maturities greater than three months) are valued at face value due to their short-term nature and were included in “Other current assets” in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Contingent consideration liabilities relate to estimated earn-out payments associated with certain acquisitions completed in 2022 and 2021, which are subject to the respective acquired company achieving certain post-acquisition performance targets. These liabilities were recorded based on the expected payments as of October 1, 2022 and have been classified as Level 3.
In addition to the items described above, we also have made venture investments in privately held companies and utilize the measurement alternative for equity investments that do not have readily determinable fair values, measuring them at cost less impairment plus or minus observable price changes in orderly transactions. We recognized net gains on these investments of $8.7 million and $12.4 million in the three and nine months ended October 1, 2022, respectively, and $4.9 million in both the three and nine months ended October 2, 2021, in “Other expense (income), net” in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Income Statements. The total carrying value of our venture investments was approximately $64 million and $52 million as of October 1, 2022 and January 1, 2022, respectively, and included in “Other assets” in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Note 11. Commitments and Contingencies
Legal Proceedings
We are involved in various lawsuits, claims, inquiries, and other regulatory and compliance matters, most of which are routine to the nature of our business. When it is probable that a loss will be incurred and where a range of the loss can be reasonably estimated, the best estimate within the range is accrued. When the best estimate within the range cannot be determined, the low end of the range is accrued. The ultimate resolution of these claims could affect future results of operations should our exposure be materially different from our estimates or should we incur liabilities that were not previously accrued. Potential insurance reimbursements are not offset against potential liabilities.
We are currently party to a litigation in which ADASA Inc. (“Adasa”), an unrelated third party, alleged that certain of our RFID products infringed on its patent. We recorded a contingent liability related to this matter in the second quarter of 2021 in the amount of $26.6 million based on a jury verdict issued on May 14, 2021. During the third quarter of 2021, the first instance judgment associated with the jury verdict was issued. This resulted in additional potential liability of $35.8 million for, among other things, royalties on a higher number of tags and royalties on tags sold after March 31, 2021. We have not increased our previously recorded contingent liability for this additional potential liability. With continued evaluation of the matter and our defenses, as well as consultation with our outside counsel, we continue to believe that Adasa’s patent is invalid and that, even if valid, we have not infringed it, and that the royalty rate used as the basis for the jury’s determination is unreasonable under prevailing industry standards, as well as that any liability related to this matter would be substantially lower than that which is reflected in either the jury verdict or the first instance judgment. On October 22, 2021, we appealed the judgment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and continue to believe meritorious defenses exist to significantly reduce the liability we currently have recorded. The oral hearing was held on September 8, 2022, and the court has yet to issue a decision. As our appeal is still pending, we maintained our current contingent liability of $26.6 million for this matter as a reasonable estimate within the range of probable outcomes. We have largely completed our migration to alternative encoding methods used in our other RFID tags.
Because of the uncertainties associated with claims resolution and litigation, future expenses to resolve these matters could be higher than the liabilities we have accrued; however, we are unable to reasonably estimate a range of potential expenses. If information were to become available that allowed us to reasonably estimate a range of potential expenses in an amount higher or lower than what we have accrued and determined such to be probable, we would adjust our accrued liabilities accordingly. Additional lawsuits, claims, inquiries, and other regulatory and compliance matters could arise in the future. The range of expenses for resolving any future matters would be assessed as they arise; until then, a range of potential expenses for such resolution cannot be determined. Based upon current information, we believe that the impact of the resolution of these matters would not be, individually or in the aggregate, material to our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Environmental Expenditures
Environmental expenditures are generally expensed. When it is probable that a loss will be incurred and where a range of the loss can be reasonably estimated, the best estimate within the range is accrued. When the best estimate within the range cannot be determined, the low end of the range is accrued. The ultimate resolution of these matters could affect future results of operations should our exposure be materially different from our estimates or should we incur liabilities that were not previously accrued. Potential insurance reimbursements are not offset against potential liabilities. We review our estimates of the costs of complying with environmental laws related to remediation and cleanup of various sites, including sites in which governmental agencies have designated us as a potentially responsible party (“PRP”). However, environmental expenditures for newly acquired assets and those that extend or improve the economic useful life of existing assets are capitalized and amortized over the shorter of the estimated useful life of the acquired asset or the remaining life of the existing asset.
As of October 1, 2022, we have been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and/or other responsible state agencies as a PRP at eleven waste disposal or waste recycling sites that are the subject of separate investigations or proceedings concerning alleged soil and/or groundwater contamination. No settlement of our liability related to any of these sites has been agreed upon. We are participating with other PRPs at these sites and anticipate that our share of remediation costs will be determined pursuant to agreements that we negotiate with the EPA or other governmental authorities.
These estimates could change as a result of changes in planned remedial actions, remediation technologies, site conditions, the estimated time to complete remediation, environmental laws and regulations, and other factors. Because of the uncertainties associated with environmental assessment and remediation activities, our future expenses to remediate these sites could be higher than the liabilities we have accrued; however, we are unable to reasonably estimate a range of potential expenses. If information were to become available that allowed us to reasonably estimate a range of potential expenses in an amount higher or lower than what we have accrued, we would adjust our environmental liabilities accordingly. In addition, we may be identified as a PRP at additional sites in the future. The range of expenses for remediation of any future-identified sites would be addressed as they arise; until then, a range of expenses for such remediation cannot be determined.
