Share:

ST. LOUIS, May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Energizer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:ENR) today announced results for the second fiscal quarter, which ended March 31, 2021.  

"Building on the momentum of our first quarter, we delivered strong performance across all categories and geographies resulting in 12.7% organic sales growth for the second quarter," said Mark LaVigne, Chief Executive Officer.  "We now expect 5% to 7% topline growth for fiscal 2021.  The combination of the strong demand for our brands and products with our improving cost control raises our full fiscal year outlook for Adjusted earnings per share to $3.30 to $3.50 and Adjusted EBITDA to $620 to $640 million."

Top-Line Performance

For the quarter, demand across batteries and auto in both geographical segments was elevated, resulting in strong sales growth.  Net sales were $685.1 million compared to $587.0 million in the prior year period.

16.7

%

  • Organic Net sales increased 12.7%, or $74.7 million, due to the following items:
    • New distribution, predominately in North America, contributed approximately 8%;
    • Increased year-over-year replenishment volumes globally contributed approximately 6%, driven by elevated demand in both battery and auto;
    • Favorable pricing contributed approximately 1%; and
    • Timing of activity negatively impacted organic growth in the current quarter as we experienced an acceleration of orders at the end of the first fiscal quarter related to Brexit shipments and increased country lockdowns due to COVID.  These activities unfavorably impacted the current quarter by 2.3%.

Gross Margin

Gross margin percentage on a reported basis was 39.5%, versus 40.1% in the prior year.  Excluding the current and prior year costs related to acquisition and integration, adjusted gross margin was 40.5%, down 110 basis points from the prior year.

Gross margin was impacted primarily by channel, customer, and product mix as well as increased operating costs that resulted from higher tariffs associated with higher sourcing volumes, and transportation and product input costs.

Partially offsetting these margin impacts were synergies of approximately $14 million as well as favorable currency exchange rates.  

Selling, General and Administrative Expense (SG&A)

SG&A, excluding acquisition and integration costs, for the second quarter was 16.7% of net sales, or $114.1 million, compared to prior year of 18.4% of Net sales, or $108.0 million. The decrease, as a percent of Net sales, benefited from increased leverage due to higher sales, synergy realization and reduced spending, due in part to travel restrictions imposed as a result of COVID-19. On an absolute dollar basis, adjusted SG&A increased $6.1 million driven primarily by higher overhead associated with the top-line sales growth.(1)

Advertising and Promotion Expense (A&P)

A&P was 4.0% of net sales for the second fiscal quarter, relatively flat versus the prior year.  The absolute dollar increase was $4.3 million.

The changes in Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted diluted net earnings per common share - continuing operations for the quarter reflect organic revenue growth and synergy realization, slightly offset by higher SG&A and A&P, on an absolute dollar basis.

The Company also finalized the refinancing of its existing Revolver, Term Loans and Senior Notes with $1.2 billion in Term Loans in early January 2021. This contributed to a reduction in interest over the prior year of $8.1 million, or approximately $0.09 per share.

Free Cash Flow and Continued Return of Capital

  • Generated cash flows from continuing operations of $12.4 million for the year to date and Adjusted free cash flow from continuing operations of $34.9 million. The decrease from the prior year was primarily due to the expected impacts of quarter over quarter working capital changes, as planned inventory investments were made to meet higher demand. In addition, the prior year first quarter benefited from a $30 million receipt of a valued added tax refund settlement. (1)
  • Dividend payments in the quarter of approximately $20.6 million, or $0.30 per common share and $4.1 million, or $1.875 per share of mandatory preferred convertible stock.
  • Net debt to credit-defined EBITDA was 4.8 times as of March 31, 2021.

Financial Outlook and Assumptions for Fiscal Year 2021(1)

As a result of our continued strong organic growth in the second quarter, we are updating our full year fiscal 2021 outlook for the following key metrics: 

  • Net sales growth is now expected to be between 5% to 7%, attributed to distribution gains, elevated battery demand and favorable currency impacts;
  • Adjusted gross margin rate is expected to be essentially flat on a year-over-year basis as synergies and the impacts of favorable currency are expected to offset inflationary cost pressures and mix shifts. This full-year rate is consistent with our previously provided outlook;
  • Adjusted earnings per share is now expected to be in the range of $3.30 to $3.50;
  • Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to be in the range of $620 to $640 million; and
  • Adjusted free cash flow is now expected to be at the low end of our previously provided range of $325 to $350 million due to working capital requirements, primarily related to inventory, as we look to rebuild safety stock and meet increased demand.

We began lapping the COVID elevated demand levels for batteries late in the second quarter.  With respect to auto care, the elevated demand occurred at the beginning of May.  In the third and fourth quarter, we anticipate year-over-year declines as we approach more normalized levels for both categories.  In addition, fiscal 2020 included COVID-related costs of $36 million, including interest expense, which were heavily weighted to the back half of the year.

  • We may be unable to realize the anticipated benefits of the 2019 acquisitions of the global auto care and battery, lighting and power businesses from Spectrum Brands.
  • The 2019 auto care and battery acquisitions may have liabilities that are not known to us and the acquisition agreements may not provide us with sufficient indemnification with respect to such liabilities.
  • Our business involves the potential for claims of product liability, labeling claims, commercial claims and other legal claims against us, which could affect our results of operations and financial condition and result in product recalls or withdrawals.
  • Our business is subject to increasing regulation in the U.S. and abroad, the uncertainty and cost of future compliance and consequence of non-compliance with which may have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • Increased focus by governmental and non-governmental organizations, customers, consumers and shareholders on sustainability issues, including those related to climate change, may have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations and damage our reputation.
  • We are subject to environmental laws and regulations that may expose us to significant liabilities and have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and financial condition.
  • We cannot guarantee that any share repurchase program will be fully consummated or that any share repurchase program will enhance long-term stockholder value, and share repurchases could increase the volatility of the price of our stock and diminish our cash reserves.

In addition, other risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we consider immaterial could affect the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements. The list of factors above is illustrative, but by no means exhaustive. All forward-looking statements should be evaluated with the understanding of their inherent uncertainty.

ENERGIZER HOLDINGS, INC.
Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures
For the Quarter and Six Months Ended March 31, 2021

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, acquisition earn out and the loss on extinguishment of debt.  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, the charges related to acquisition and integration costs and the acquisition earn out have all been excluded from segment profit.

Adjusted Net Earnings From Continuing Operations and Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Per Common Share - Continuing Operations (EPS).  These measures exclude the impact of the costs related to acquisition and integration, acquisition earn out and the loss on extinguishment of debt.

Non-GAAP Tax Rate. This is the tax rate when excluding the pre-tax impact of acquisition and integration costs, acquisition earn out and the loss on extinguishment of debt, as well as the related tax impact for these items, calculated utilizing the statutory rate for where the impact was incurred.

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

Impact of acquisitions. Energizer completed two acquisitions in the first fiscal quarter of 2021, a battery plant in Indonesia on October 1, 2020 and a formulation company in the United States on December 1, 2020.  These adjustments include the impact of the acquisitions' ongoing operations contributed to each respective income statement caption for the first year's operations directly after the acquisition date. This does not include the impact of acquisition and integration costs associated with any acquisition.

Change in Argentina Operations. The Company is presenting separately all changes in sales and segment profit from our Argentina affiliate due to the designation of the economy as highly inflationary as of July 1, 2018.

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, as well as the impact of  hedging on the currency fluctuation.

Adjusted Comparisons.  Detail for adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted SG&A as percent of sales, adjusted R&D and adjusted Other items, net are also supplemental non-GAAP measure disclosures. These measures exclude the impact of costs related to acquisition and integration, acquisition earn out and the loss on extinguishment of debt.

Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow. Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations 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 expenses and integration capital expenditures. The expense cash payments are net of the statutory tax benefit associated with the payment.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as net earnings before income tax provision, interest, loss on extinguishment of debt and depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA further excludes the impact of the costs related to acquisition and integration, acquisition earn out and share based payments.

Supplemental Schedules - Segment Information and Supplemental Sales Data
For the Quarter and Six Months Ended March 31, 2021
(In millions - 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 income taxes, for the quarter and six months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, are presented below:

The effective tax rate for the Adjusted - Non-GAAP Earnings and Diluted EPS for the quarters ended March 31, 2021 and 2020  was 23.5% and 22.9%, respectively, and for the six months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 was 22.9% and 22.6%, respectively, as calculated utilizing the statutory rate for where the costs were incurred.

(3)

For the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Adjusted Weighted average shares of common stock - Diluted includes the dilutive impact of our outstanding performance shares, restricted stock and mandatory preferred stock dividends as they are dilutive to the calculation.
