PR Newswire

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Energizer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ENR) today announced results for the third fiscal quarter, which ended June 30, 2018.  For the third fiscal quarter, net earnings were $23.8 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $24.9 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the prior year third quarter. Adjusted net earnings in the third quarter were $33.2 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $26.7 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, in the prior year third quarter.

"By focusing on our strategic initiatives, we built on our momentum from the first half of fiscal 2018 and delivered solid operating results in the third quarter," said Alan Hoskins, Chief Executive Officer.  "Strong organic sales were driven by distribution gains and the continued benefit of pricing actions and our portfolio optimization.  In addition, we continued to make progress towards closing and preparing to integrate our acquisition of the global battery and portable lighting business from Spectrum Brands, and added scale to our Auto Care business with our acquisition of Nu Finish.  Our strong performance and strategic acquisitions will continue to drive our success and support our commitment to delivering long-term value for our shareholders."

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Highlights (Unaudited)
The following is a summary of key third fiscal quarter results.  All comparisons are with the third quarter of fiscal 2017 unless otherwise stated.

  • Net sales were $392.8 million, an increase of 5.6%: (a)
    • Organic net sales increased $19.7 million, or 5.3%, due to increased volume at existing customers and distribution gains, pricing favorability and continued benefits realized from our portfolio optimization partially offset by the May 2017 divestiture of the non-core promotional sales business acquired with the 2016 auto care acquisition.
    • Favorable currency impacts were $1.1 million, or 0.3%.
  • Gross margin percentage was 44.8%, up 230 basis points. Excluding acquisition and integration costs, gross margin increased 210 basis points primarily due to the benefit of lapping our prior year investment related to our portfolio optimization. The favorable impact of mix and foreign currency also contributed to the increase. (a)
  • A&P spending was 5.8% of net sales, an increase of 40 basis points, or $2.7 million, versus the prior year. Spending in fiscal 2018 has been more normalized throughout the fiscal year, while spending in fiscal 2017 was heavily weighted in the fourth quarter in support of our portfolio optimization and the launch of our improved Energizer Max offering.
  • SG&A spending, excluding acquisition and integration costs, was $89.5 million, an increase of $5.7 million over the prior year due primarily to the timing of benefits costs and an adjustment to international customs costs. SG&A, excluding acquisition and integration costs, was 22.8% compared to 22.5%, as a percentage of net sales in the prior year. (a) (b)
  • Earnings before income tax was favorably impacted by the movement in foreign currencies, net of hedge impact, of $0.1 million in the third fiscal quarter This amount excludes the gain on the acquisition foreign currency contracts associated with our Euro bonds offering that we entered into in June 2018 and terminated in July 2018 when the funds were placed into escrow.
  • Income tax rate on a year to date basis was 45.3% as compared to 25.2% in the prior year. The current year rate includes a $30.6 million charge for the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation passed in December 2017 as well as the impact of tax withholding expense related to anticipated cash movement to fund the previously announced acquisition of Spectrum Brands Holdings' global battery and portable lighting business (Spectrum acquisition). Excluding the impact of our Non-GAAP adjustments, the year to date tax rate was 23.6% as compared to 27.9% in the prior year. The decrease in the rate is driven by the new statutory U.S. rate that is now effective for fiscal year 2018. (a)
  • Diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.39 and Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.54. (a)
  • Net cash from operating activities on a year to date basis was $188.0 million and Adjusted free cash flow on a year to date basis was $193.5 million, or 14.4% of net sales. (a)
  • Dividend payments in the quarter were approximately $17.3 million, or $0.29 per share.
  • Repurchased approximately 1,126,000 shares of common stock for $50.0 million on a year to date basis. There were no share repurchased during the current fiscal quarter.

(a) See Press Release attachments for additional information as well as the GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciliations.

(b) The first quarter 2018 adoption of ASU 2017-07, Improving the Presentation of Net Periodic Pension Cost and Net Periodic Postretirement Benefit Costs (ASU 2017-07) requires pension financing costs to be recorded in Other items, net.  The 2017 results reflect this reclassification which caused a net pension benefit of $3.1 and $9.3 million to be reclassified out of SG&A for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2017, respectively.

Total Net sales increased 5.6%, or $20.8 million:

  • Organic net sales were up 5.3%, or $19.7 million, in the third fiscal quarter due to the following items:
    • Distribution gains across both segments and increased volumes at existing customers, primarily in North America, contributed 3.5% to the organic increase;
    • Favorable pricing across several markets increased net sales by 1.3%;
    • Benefits from our portfolio optimization contributed 0.8% to the organic sales increase; and
    • Partially offsetting the increase was the May 2017 divestiture of the non-core promotional sales business acquired with the 2016 auto care acquisition, which negatively impacted net sales by 0.3%. This is the final quarter that the divestiture will provide a negative year over year comparative.
  • Favorable currency impacts were $1.1 million, or 0.3%.

Total Segment profit in the third fiscal quarter increased $13.7 million, or 17.3%.  Excluding the favorable movement in foreign currencies of $0.8 million, organic segment profit increased $12.9 million, or 16.3%, in the current fiscal quarter.  The increase was driven by top-line growth in the quarter as well as the benefit of lapping our prior year investment related to our portfolio optimization.  These increases were partially offset by higher SG&A and A&P spending in the current fiscal quarter.

Financial Outlook for Fiscal Year 2018

The company is maintaining its adjusted EPS outlook for the full fiscal year of $3.30 to $3.40 and updated the assumptions below related to its financial outlook for the fiscal year 2018.  Our outlook also includes the impact of our recently completed acquisition of Nu Finish. The impact of this acquisition did not significantly impact our outlook for fiscal year 2018.

Note that all comparisons are with the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 unless otherwise stated.  The outlook provided below takes into account our lapping of significant hurricane activity in fiscal 2017 that contributed approximately $26 million of net sales and $0.08 to adjusted earnings per share. Our outlook assumes that activity does not repeat.

Net sales on a reported basis are expected to be up low single digits:

  • Organic net sales are expected to be up low single digits; and
  • Favorable movements in foreign currency are now expected to be flat to a favorable 1% based on current rates.

Gross margin rates are expected to be flat to up 25 basis points versus the prior year, excluding acquisition and integration costs.

A&P spending is expected to be in the range of 6% to 7% of net sales, consistent with our long term outlook.

SG&A as a percent of net sales is expected to be flat on a year over year basis excluding acquisition and integration costs. (a)

Earnings before income taxes is now expected to be unfavorably impacted by the movement of foreign currencies by up to $5 million, net of hedge impacts, based on current rates.

Ex-unusual tax rate is expected to be in the range of 23% to 25%, taking into account the impact related to the U.S. tax legislation passed in December.

Adjusted Diluted earnings per share for the full fiscal year is expected to be in the range of $3.30 to $3.40, inclusive of the U.S. tax legislation passed in December and excluding any impact associated with the Spectrum acquisition.

Capital spending is expected to be approximately $30 million.

Adjusted Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $240 to $250 million, which includes the impact of fiscal year 2018 U.S. tax legislation passed in December and excludes the cash impact associated with the Spectrum acquisition.

(a) SG&A guidance takes into account the adoption of ASU 2017-07 which requires pension financing costs to be recorded in Other items, net.  The 2018 guidance reflects the fiscal year 2017 reclassification which resulted in a net pension benefit of $3.1 and $9.3 million reclassified out of SG&A to Other items, net, for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2017, respectively. This reclassification results in an increase in SG&A as a percent of net sales from 19.7% to 20.4% for fiscal year 2017.

ENERGIZER HOLDINGS, INC.
Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures
For the Quarter and Nine Months Ended June 30, 2018

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP").  However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful comparisons to the corresponding historical or future period. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that are not reflective of the Company's on-going operating performance, such as acquisition and integration costs and related items, costs related to spin, gain on sale of real estate and the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation.  In addition, these measures help investors to analyze year over year comparability when excluding currency fluctuations, acquisition activity as well as other company initiatives that are not on-going.  We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are an enhancement to assist investors in understanding our business and in performing analysis consistent with financial models developed by research analysts. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures.  In addition, these non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures used by other companies due to possible differences in method and in the items being adjusted.

We provide the following non-GAAP measures and calculations, as well as the corresponding reconciliation to the closest GAAP measure in the following supplemental schedules:

Segment Profit.  This amount represents the operations of our two reportable segments including allocations for shared support functions.  General corporate and other expenses, Global marketing expenses, R&D expenses, amortization expense, interest expense, other items, net, charges related to acquisition and integration and the spin-off and gain on sale of real estate have all been excluded from segment profit.

Adjusted Earnings Before Income Taxes, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Diluted EPS.  These measures exclude the impact of costs related to acquisition and integration, the spin-off, gain on sale of real estate and the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation.

Ex-unusual Tax Rate.  This is the tax rate when excluding the pre-tax impact of acquisition and integration and spin-off costs, gain on sale of real state, as well as the related tax impact for these items, calculated utilizing the statutory rate for where the costs were incurred, as well as the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation.

Organic.  This is the non-GAAP financial measurement of the change in revenue, segment profit or other margins that excludes or otherwise adjusts for the impact of currency from the changes in foreign currency exchange rates as defined below:

Impact of currency. The Company evaluates the operating performance of our Company on a currency neutral basis.  The impact of currency is the difference between the value of current year foreign operations at the current period ending USD exchange rate, compared to the value of the current year foreign operations at the prior period ending USD exchange rate.

Adjusted Comparisons.  Detail for adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, and adjusted SG&A as a percent of sales are also supplemental non-GAAP measure disclosures. These measures exclude the impact of costs related to acquisition and integration.

Free Cash Flow.  Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities reduced by capital expenditures, net of the proceeds from asset sales.  Adjusted Free Cash Flow is defined as Free Cash Flow excluding the cash payments for acquisition and integration costs.  These cash payments are net of the statutory tax benefit associated with the payment.

Non-GAAP Outlook.  The Company is unable to provide a reconciliation to the full year Adjusted EPS range of $3.30 to $3.40, or Adjusted Free Cash flow range of $240 million to $250 million, due to the uncertainty regarding the amount of future acquisition and integration costs and related cash payments.  While we currently expect the Spectrum acquisition will occur in the second half of calendar year 2018, given the uncertainty of the exact closing date, we are unable to forecast the amount of acquisition and integration costs that will be incurred in fiscal 2018.

Energizer Holdings, Inc.
Supplemental Schedules - Segment Information and Supplemental Sales Data
For the Quarter and Nine Months Ended June 30, 2018
(In millions, except per share data - Unaudited)

Operations for Energizer are managed via two major geographic reportable segments: Americas and International. Energizer's operating model includes a combination of standalone and shared business functions between the geographic segments, varying by country and region of the world.  Energizer applies a fully allocated cost basis, in which shared business functions are allocated between segments. Such allocations are estimates, and do not represent the costs of such services if performed on a standalone basis.  Segment sales and profitability, as well as the reconciliation to earnings before tax, for the quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, are presented below:
