Energizer Holdings, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2017 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results and Provides Financial Outlook for the Fiscal Year 2018

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Energizer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ENR) today announced results for the fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year, which ended September 30, 2017. For the fourth fiscal quarter, net earnings were $34.1 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $21.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, in the prior year fourth quarter. Adjusted net earnings in the fourth quarter were $33.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net earnings of $33.7 million, or $0.54 per diluted share.

For the year, the Company reported net earnings of $201.5 million, or $3.22 per diluted share, compared with net income of $127.7 million, or $2.04 per diluted share, in the prior year. Adjusted net earnings for the current fiscal year were $186.8 million, or $2.98 per diluted share, compared to $144.6 million in the prior fiscal year, or $2.31 per diluted share.

"Our performance for fiscal 2017 was outstanding across a number of key metrics, including organic net revenue, adjusted earnings per share, and free cash flow growth," said Alan Hoskins, Chief Executive Officer. "The team's continued execution of our strategic priorities: lead with innovation, operate with excellence, and drive productivity gains, have powered our strong performance and we believe we have created a foundation for continued success. In fiscal 2017, we also demonstrated our balanced approach to allocating our capital by reinvesting in our business to drive long term growth and returning $128 million of capital to our shareholders through dividends and share repurchase. Looking into fiscal 2018, delivering on our strategic priorities will drive our earnings per share outlook of $3.00 to $3.10."

Fourth Fiscal Quarter Financial Highlights (Unaudited)
The following is a summary of key fourth fiscal quarter results. All comparisons are with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 unless otherwise stated.

  • Net sales were $465.1 million, up 7.6%: (a)
    • Organic net sales increased 7.5%, due primarily to hurricane activity in the U.S., distribution gains in certain international markets and timing of holiday activity and the favorable impact of pricing initiatives. These items were partially offset by additional investments made during the quarter related to our portfolio optimization.
    • Favorable movement in foreign currencies resulted in increased sales of $0.1 million, or 0.1%.
  • Gross margin percentage was 46.0%, up 270 basis points from the prior year. Excluding prior year's impact from the one-time accounting adjustment ($8.1 million) related to the fair market value step up of auto care acquired inventory, gross margin was up 80 basis points, driven by improved mix in the current quarter, the favorable impact of pricing as well as the year over year benefit of lapping productivity investments made in the prior year. Favorable movement in foreign currencies also contributed to the increase. Partially offsetting the favorability was increased investment related to our portfolio optimization. (a)
  • A&P spending was 9.7% of sales, an increase of 240 basis points, or $13.6 million, due to timing of spend and advertising campaigns to support our innovation and portfolio changes as we move into the holiday season.
  • SG&A spending, excluding acquisition and integration costs and spin related costs, was approximately $96.3 million, or 20.7% compared to $92.8 million, or 21.5% in the prior year. The improved percentage comparison versus the prior year quarter reflects the improved top-line performance due to organic sales growth and continued strong cost management. (a)
  • Earnings before income taxes was negatively impacted by the movement in foreign currencies by approximately $0.5 million in the fourth fiscal quarter, net of hedge impact.
  • Diluted EPS was $0.55 in the fourth quarter and Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.54, inclusive of hurricane volumes which contributed approximately $0.08.
  • Dividend payments in the quarter were approximately $16.8 million, or $0.275 per share.
  • Repurchased approximately 1,197,000 shares of common stock during the fourth quarter for $50.1 million.

Fiscal 2017 Full Year Financial Highlights (Unaudited)
The following is a summary of key fiscal 2017 full year results. All comparisons are with fiscal 2016 unless otherwise stated.

  • Net sales were $1,755.7 million, up 7.4%: (a)
    • Organic net sales increased 3.7% reflecting hurricane activity in the U.S., distribution and shelf space gains as well as the favorable impact of pricing initiatives. These items were somewhat offset by additional investments made during the third and fourth quarter related to our portfolio optimization.
    • Impact of the auto care acquisition resulted in increased sales of $83.1 million, or 5.1%.
    • These items were partially offset by the impact of unfavorable movement in foreign currencies of $21.3 million, or 1.4%.
  • Gross margin percentage was 46.2%, up 260 basis points from the prior year. Excluding the impact of acquisition and integration costs ($1.1 million in fiscal 2017 and $8.1 million in fiscal 2016) and restructuring and spin charges ($2.8 million in fiscal 2016), gross margin percentage was 46.3% or 200 basis points above prior year. This increase was driven by cost reductions realized from continued productivity improvements, as well as the year over year benefit of lapping productivity investments recorded in the prior year, material and purchased product cost favorability, improved overhead absorption driven by the strong volume performance in the first part of the year and improved pricing. These items were partially offset by increased investment related to our portfolio optimization and the unfavorable impact of foreign currencies on our gross margin rate. (a)
  • A&P spending was 6.6% of sales, an increase of 30 basis points, or $13.7 million, due to increased spend and advertising campaigns to support our innovation and portfolio changes.
  • SG&A spending, excluding acquisition and integration costs and spin costs, was approximately $345.6 million, or 19.7% compared to $332.6 million, or 20.4% in the prior year. The improved percentage comparison versus the prior year reflects the improved top-line performance due to organic sales growth and incremental sales from the auto care acquisition as well as a continued focus on managing costs. (a)
  • Earnings before income taxes was negatively impacted by the movement in foreign currencies by approximately $16 million, net of hedge impact.
  • Income tax rate on a year to date basis was 26.3%. Impacting this rate was the favorable impacts of $1.3 million of adjustments related to our prior year provision estimates, the benefit of the non-taxable gain on the sale of real estate in Asia during the second quarter, and the $1.6 million tax benefit recognized in our income tax provision as a result of the new stock compensation guidance adopted in the first quarter. Excluding the impact of our Non-GAAP adjustments, the effective tax rate on a full year basis was 28.4%. (a)
  • Diluted EPS was $3.22 and Adjusted Diluted EPS was $2.98, inclusive of hurricane volumes which contributed approximately $0.08 in fiscal year 2017.
  • Net cash from operating activities was $197.2 million and Free Cash Flow was $199.2 million. (a)
  • Dividend payments were $69.1 million, or $1.10 per share.
  • Repurchased approximately 1,389,000 shares of common stock for $58.7 million. (b)

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

(b) Share repurchases on the Statement of Cash Flows include $0.8 million of fiscal 2016 repurchases that were cash settled in fiscal 2017.

Total Segment Profit in the fourth fiscal quarter increased $2.2 million, or 2.1%. Organic growth of $1.7 million, or 1.6%, was driven primarily by the organic top-line increases explained above partially offset by higher A&P spending to support our innovation and portfolio changes as we move into the holiday season. Adding to the segment profit increase for the quarter was the favorable currency impact of $0.5 million, or 0.5%.

Financial Outlook Assumptions for Fiscal Year 2018

The Company is providing the below assumptions related to its financial outlook for the fiscal year 2018. 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 is not expected to 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, including lapping the impact of hurricane activity of approximately $26 million and lapping distribution in fiscal 2017;
  • Favorable movements in foreign currency are expected to benefit net sales by 1.0% to 1.5% based on current rates.

Gross margin rates are expected to be essentially flat with the current year, excluding fiscal 2017 acquisition and integration costs, as improved pricing is offset by increased commodity costs and the repositioning of lithium pricing.

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 fiscal 2017 acquisition and integration costs.

Pretax income is expected to be favorably impacted by the movement of foreign currencies by roughly $5 to $10 million, net of hedge impacts, based on current rates.

Income tax rate is expected to be in the range of 28.5% to 29.5% based on the current expected country mix of earnings. This guidance does not include any assumed potential impact of any current proposed tax reform. We will update our outlook should any tax proposal become finalized in the upcoming fiscal year.

Diluted earnings per share for the full fiscal year is expected to be in the range of $3.00 to $3.10.

Capital spending is expected to be in the range of $30 to $35 million.

Free cash flow is expected to be in the range of $210 to $220 million, which includes lapping significant asset sale benefits in fiscal year 2017.

Dividends are expected to increase 5% beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2018, subject to Board approval.

Supplemental Schedules
Introduction to the Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures
For the Quarter and Twelve Months ended September 30, 2017

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 costs related to the spin, restructuring activities, acquisition and integration costs, gains on sale of real estate and income tax adjustments. 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 three geographic 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, and charges related to the spin-off, restructuring, the acquisition fair value inventory step up (inventory step up), acquisition and integration, and gains on sale of real estate have all been excluded from segment profit.

Adjusted Earnings Before Taxes, Adjusted Net Earnings and Adjusted Diluted EPS. These measures exclude the impact of the costs related to the spin-off, restructurings, acquisition and integration, inventory step up, gains on sale of real estate and income tax adjustments.

Ex-unusual Tax Rate. This is the tax rate when excluding the pre-tax impact of the spin-off, restructurings, acquisition and integration, gains on sale of real estate, as well as the related tax impact for these items, calculated utilizing the statutory rate for where the costs were incurred, as well as any other specifically identified non-recurring income tax adjustments.

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 acquisitions and the impact of currency from the changes in foreign currency exchange rates as defined below:

Impact of acquisition. The Company acquired an auto care business on July 1, 2016. This includes the impact of the auto care on-going operations contributed to each respective income statement caption. This does not include the impact of acquisition and integration costs associated with the auto care acquisition.

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 spin-off, restructuring, inventory step up and acquisition and integration costs.

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. Given our extensive international operations, a significant portion of our cash is generated outside of the U.S. The repatriation of cash balances from certain of our subsidiaries could have adverse tax consequences or be subject to regulatory capital requirements.

Energizer Holdings, Inc.
Supplemental Schedules - Segment Information and Supplemental Sales Data
For the Quarter and Twelve Months ended September 30, 2017
(In millions, except per share data - Unaudited)

As of October 1, 2016, the Company changed its internal reporting structure and is managing operations via three major geographic reportable segments: Americas (North America and Latin America), Europe, Middle East and Africa ("EMEA"), and Asia Pacific. Prior to this year, the Americas segment was reported as two separate geographic reportable segments. The Company changed its internal reporting structure to combine these two geographic regions to better reflect how the Company is managing the operations.

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 also do not represent the costs of such services if performed on a standalone basis.

Segment sales and profitability for the quarter and twelve months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, are presented below:
