NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars and shares in thousands except per share data)
(unaudited)


Note 1:  Basis of Interim Presentation 
In the opinion of the management of Sonoco Products Company (the “Company” or “Sonoco”), the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, unless otherwise stated) necessary to state fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods reported herein. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.
With respect to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information of the Company for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2019 and April 1, 2018 included in this Form 10-Q, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP reported that they have applied limited procedures in accordance with professional standards for a review of such information. However, their separate report dated May 1, 2019 appearing herein, states that they did not audit and they do not express an opinion on that unaudited financial information. Accordingly, the degree of reliance on their report on such information should be restricted in light of the limited nature of the review procedures applied. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP is not subject to the liability provisions of Section 11 of the Securities Act of 1933 for their report on the unaudited financial information because that report is not a “report” or a “part” of a registration statement prepared or certified by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP within the meaning of Sections 7 and 11 of the Act. 

Note 2:  New Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2018-16 “Derivatives and Hedging: Inclusion of the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) Overnight Index Swap (OIS) Rate as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes,” which allows the use of the SOFR and OIS rate as benchmark rates after the Federal Reserve started publishing such daily rate on April 3, 2018. The Company adopted the standard effective January 1, 2019 using the prospective basis. The adoption did not have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements.
In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases" (“ASU 2016-02”) requiring lessees to recognize on the balance sheet a right-of-use asset and lease liability for all long-term leases and requiring disclosure of key information about leasing arrangements in order to increase transparency and comparability among organizations. The accounting for lessors does not fundamentally change except for changes to conform and align guidance to the lessee guidance and the revenue recognition standard adopted in 2018. The Company established a cross-functional team to implement certain software solutions as part of its newly integrated enterprise-wide lease management system. The implementation plan included developing business processes, accounting systems, and internal controls to ensure the Company's compliance with reporting and disclosure requirements of the new standard. The Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard upon adoption and has made an accounting policy election to keep leases with a term of 12 months or less off of the balance sheet in accordance with ASU 2016-02’s short-term lease exemption provision. The Company is also electing the hindsight practical expedient to determine the reasonably certain lease term for existing leases and has elected to combine lease and non-lease components as a single lease component for all classes of assets. 
The Company adopted ASU 2016-02 as of January 1, 2019, using a modified retrospective transition method and elected to apply the optional transition approach prescribed by ASU 2018-11 which allows entities to initially apply the new leases standard at the adoption date, without adjusting comparative periods. The adoption of the ASU 2016-02 resulted in the Company recording a right of use asset impact of $336,083 and a lease liability impact of $344,362 to its consolidated balance sheet, partially offset by a cumulative effect adjustment to retained earnings of $6,771 and a $1,508 reduction to deferred tax liabilities.
During the three-month period ended March 31, 2019, there have been no other newly issued nor newly applicable accounting pronouncements that have had, or are expected to have, a material impact on the Company’s financial statements. Further, at March 31, 2019, there were no other pronouncements pending adoption that are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Note 3:  Acquisitions 
 The Company completed the acquisition of the remaining 70 percent interest in Conitex Sonoco (BVI), Ltd. ("Conitex Sonoco") from Texpack Investments, Inc. ("Texpack") on October 1, 2018. Concurrent with this acquisition, the Company also acquired a rigid paper facility in Spain ("Compositub") from Texpack Group Holdings B.V. Final consideration for both acquisitions was subject to a post-closing adjustment for the change in working capital to the date of closing. These adjustments were settled in February 2019 for additional cash payments to the sellers totaling $455.
On April 12, 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of Highland Packaging Solutions ("Highland"). Highland manufactures thermoformed plastic packaging for fresh produce and dairy products from a single production facility in Plant City, Florida. The acquisition of Highland included a contingent purchase liability of $7,500 payable in two installments and based upon a sales metric which the Company expects to meet. The first installment of $5,000 is expected to be paid by the end of the second quarter of 2019 and the second installment of $2,500 is to be paid two years after the closing date. The liability for these two payments has been recognized in full on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 31, 2019 and December 31,2018, with the first installment included in "Accrued expenses and other" and the second in "Other Liabilities." 
During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company continued to finalize its valuations of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in acquisitions completed in the previous year based on new information obtained about facts and circumstances that existed as of their respective acquisition dates. As a result, the following measurement period adjustments were made to the previously disclosed provisional fair values:
Conitex Sonoco Compositub Highland  
Trade accounts receivable$(77)$203 $ 
Inventories 50  
Property, plant and equipment(199)(1,026)1,895 
Goodwill1,971 (566)(1,895)
Other intangible assets300 1,888  
Accrued expenses and other(1,782)(138) 
Other net tangible assets /(liabilities)(129)(40) 
Net assets$84 $371 $ 
 
Management is continuing to finalize its valuations of certain assets and liabilities associated with its 2018 acquisitions, including, but not limited to: inventory; property, plant and equipment; other intangible assets; and trade accounts receivable, and expects to complete its valuations within one year of the respective dates of acquisition.
The Company has accounted for its acquisitions as business combinations under the acquisition method of accounting, in accordance with the business combinations subtopic of the Accounting Standards Codification and has included their results of operations in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income from their respective dates of acquisition.
Acquisition-related costs of $400 and $545 were incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and April 1, 2018, respectively. Acquisition-related costs consist primarily of legal and professional fees and are included in "Selling, general and administrative expenses" in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

Note 4:  Shareholders' Equity
Earnings per Share
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share:
Three Months Ended

Numerator:
Net income attributable to Sonoco$73,663 $74,055

Net income attributable to Sonoco per common share:
Basic$0.73 $0.74 
Diluted$0.73 $0.73 
Cash dividends$0.41 $0.39 

Potentially dilutive securities are calculated in accordance with the treasury stock method, which assumes the proceeds from the exercise of all dilutive stock appreciation rights (SARs) are used to repurchase the Company’s common stock. Certain SARs are not dilutive because either the exercise price is greater than the average market price of the stock during the reporting period or assumed repurchases from proceeds from the exercise of the SARs were antidilutive. These SARs may become dilutive in the future if the market price of the Company's common stock appreciates.
The average numbers of SARs that were not dilutive and, therefore, not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share during the three month periods ended March 31, 2019 and April 1, 2018 were as follows:
Three Months Ended
March 31, 2019April 1, 2018
Anti-dilutive stock appreciation rights305 738 
No adjustments were made to net income attributable to Sonoco in the computations of earnings per share.
Stock Repurchases
On February 10, 2016, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to 5,000 shares of the Company's common stock. A total of 2,030 were purchased in 2016. No shares were repurchased under this authorization during 2017, 2018, or during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Accordingly, a total of 2,970 shares remain available for repurchase at March 31, 2019.
The Company frequently repurchases shares of its common stock to satisfy employee tax withholding obligations in association with certain share-based compensation awards. These repurchases, which are not part of a publicly announced plan or program, totaled 133 shares in the three months ended March 31, 2019 at a cost of $7,395, and 78 shares in the three months ended April 1, 2018 at a cost of $4,088.
Dividend Declarations
On February 13, 2019, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.41 per share. This dividend was paid on March 8, 2019 to all shareholders of record as of February 27, 2019.
On April 17, 2019, the Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.43 per share. This dividend is payable on June 10, 2019 to all shareholders of record as of May 10, 2019.

Note 5:  Restructuring and Asset Impairment
The Company has engaged in a number of restructuring actions over the past several years. Actions initiated in 2019 and 2018 are reported as “2019 Actions” and “2018 Actions,” respectively. Actions initiated prior to 2018, all of which were substantially complete at March 31, 2019, are reported as “2017 and Earlier Actions.”
Following are the total restructuring and asset impairment charges, net of adjustments, recognized by the Company during the periods presented:

Restructuring/asset impairment charges attributable to Sonoco, net of tax$7,965 $2,373 

Pre-tax restructuring and asset impairment charges are included in “Restructuring/Asset impairment charges” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
When recognizable in accordance with GAAP, the Company expects to recognize future additional charges totaling approximately $5,100 in connection with previously announced restructuring actions. The Company believes that the majority of these charges will be incurred and paid by the end of 2019. The Company continually evaluates its cost structure, including its manufacturing capacity, and additional restructuring actions are likely to be undertaken.
2019 Actions
During 2019, the Company announced the elimination of a forming film production line at a flexible packaging facility in the United States, and initiated the closure of a composite can and injection molding facility in Germany (both part of the Consumer Packaging segment).  In addition, approximately 90 positions were eliminated in the first three months of 2019 in conjunction with the Company's ongoing organizational effectiveness efforts.
