TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prestige Brands Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:PBH) today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine-months ended December 31, 2017.

“We were pleased with our third quarter performance, which reflected continued strong consumption trends and the expected return to average shipment times versus second quarter. Although we continue to see headwinds related to a challenging retailer environment, our long-term growth strategy remains unchanged. We continue to focus on growing categories, which enables us to win share with the consumer and positions us well for the future,” said Ron Lombardi, Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Brands.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Ended December 31, 2017

Reported revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 increased 24.8% to $270.6 million, compared to $216.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Revenues for the quarter were driven by continued solid consumption levels across the Company’s core brands and $54.1 million from the recently acquired brands from the Fleet acquisition, which were partially offset by the divestitures of certain non-core brands during fiscal 2017.

Gross profit margin in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was 54.6%, compared to 57.5% for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. The gross profit margin year-over-year change was attributable to higher freight and warehousing costs during the quarter as well as product mix from the addition of the high growth Fleet portfolio.

Advertising & promotion expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $35.8 million, or 13.2% of sales, compared to $30.7 million, or 14.2% of sales, in the prior year. Higher advertising and promotion dollar growth was attributable to ongoing investments behind the Company’s long-term brand building strategy.

Reported net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 totaled $314.8 million versus the prior year comparable quarter’s net income of $31.6 million. Diluted earnings per share of $5.88 for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $0.59 per share in the prior year comparable period. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $37.3 million, an increase of 14.5% from the prior year period’s adjusted net income of $32.6 million. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share were $0.70 per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to $0.61 per share in the prior year comparable period.

Adjustments to net income in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 include income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and a tax adjustment associated with an acquisition. Adjustments to net income in the third quarter of both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017 include certain integration, transition, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures and the related income tax effects of the adjustments.

Nine Months Ended December 31, 2017

Reported revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 increased 22.4% to $785.2 million compared to $641.4 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2017. Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 were driven by continued strong consumption levels across the Company’s legacy brands and $160.7 million of incremental revenue from the Fleet acquisition, which was partially offset by the divestitures of certain non-core brands during fiscal 2017.

Reported gross profit margin in the first nine months of fiscal 2018 was 55.4% (with adjusted gross margin of 55.9% excluding adjustments related to the Fleet transition and integration) compared to 57.7% for the first nine months of fiscal 2017. The gross profit margin year-over-year change was primarily due to the addition of the high growth Fleet portfolio and the higher distribution costs realized in third quarter 2018.

Advertising & promotion expense for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 was $112.0 million, or 14.3% of sales, compared to $86.9 million, or 13.6% of sales, in the prior year. Increased investments in advertising and promotion expense as a percentage of sales was attributable to the Company’s long-term brand building strategy.

Reported net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 totaled $379.3 million, versus the prior year comparable period net income of $58.3 million. Diluted earnings per share were $7.08 for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.09 per share in the prior year comparable period. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 was $105.3 million, an increase over the prior year period’s adjusted net income of $97.8 million. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share were $1.97 per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2018 compared to $1.83 per share in the first nine months of fiscal 2017.

Adjustments to net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2018 include income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and a tax adjustment associated with an acquisition. Adjustments to net income in the first nine months of both fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017 include integration, transition, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures and the related income tax effects of the adjustments. Adjustments to the first nine months of fiscal 2017 also include accelerated amortization of debt origination costs in addition to the non-cash costs related to divestiture of certain non-core brands.

Free Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

The Company's net cash provided by operating activities for the third fiscal quarter of 2018 increased to $47.1 million from $40.1 million during the same period a year earlier due to continued strong cash conversion in the legacy business and incremental cash flow related to the Fleet acquisition, partially offset by the loss of cash flow from divested brands.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2018, net cash provided by operating activities increased 10.3% to $155.7 million, while non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow increased 4.1% to $156.2 million compared to the prior year's period.

The Company's net debt position as of December 31, 2017 was $2.0 billion, reflecting debt repayments of $145.0 million fiscal year to date. At December 31, 2017, the Company's covenant-defined leverage ratio was 5.4x.

Segment Review

North American OTC Healthcare: Segment revenues totaled $225.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, 27.3% higher than the prior year comparable quarter's revenues of $177.3 million. The third quarter fiscal 2018 increase was driven by revenues from the acquisition of Fleet as well as consumption growth in the company’s core OTC brands, partially offset by divestitures of non-core OTC brands.

For the first nine months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the North American OTC segment were $656.8 million, an increase of 25.9% compared to $521.8 million in the prior year comparable period.

International OTC Healthcare: Segment fiscal third quarter 2018 revenues totaled $25.7 million, 39.3% higher than the $18.5 million reported in the prior year comparable period. Third quarter revenues included incremental revenues from the Fleet acquisition, as well as growth of the company’s legacy OTC brand portfolio.

For the first nine months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the International OTC Healthcare segment were $67.6 million, an increase of 27.3% over the prior year comparable period’s revenues of $53.1 million. Revenues for the International OTC Healthcare segment were impacted by favorable consumption levels as well as revenues from the Fleet acquisition.

Household Cleaning: Segment revenues totaled $19.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with third quarter fiscal 2017 revenues of $21.0 million, a decrease of 8.7%.

For the first nine months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the Household Cleaning segment were $60.8 million, a decrease of 8.6% over the prior year comparable nine month period’s revenues of $66.5 million.

Commentary and Outlook for Fiscal 2018

Ron Lombardi, CEO, stated, “Our solid overall performance in the third quarter reflects positive consumption in line with our long-term objective and speaks to the effectiveness of our brand-building efforts and portfolio evolution. Furthermore, we are encouraged by recent tax reform, which we expect to boost our already strong cash flow profile and further enhance our ability to build M&A capacity and invest behind long-term brand building.”

“The strength of our portfolio positions us well for long-term growth, but in the near-term we continue to see retailer inventory reduction headwinds partially offsetting our strong consumption trends, which we expect to continue in Q4. In addition, we expect increased freight and warehousing expenses experienced in Q3 to persist into Q4. As a result, we now expect to be at the low end of our key fiscal 2018 outlook metrics. Despite these challenges, we remain well positioned for long-term top- and bottom-line growth driven by our three-pillar strategy and diversified portfolio of leading OTC brands,” Mr. Lombardi concluded.

Adjusted E.P.S.*$2.58
Adjusted Free Cash Flow*$205 million or more

Tax Reform

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law in December 2017, which represents significant U.S. federal tax reform legislation that includes a permanent reduction to the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate. The permanent reduction to the federal corporate income tax rate resulted in a one-time gain related to the value of the Company’s deferred tax liabilities in the third quarter of 2018, resulting in a net $278 million gain. For the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company expects an immaterial impact to its tax rate. Going forward, based on preliminary analysis, the Company expects the impact of the legislation to result in a reduction of its effective tax rate beginning in fiscal 2019 to approximately 26% and a cash tax savings of approximately $10-15 million in fiscal 2019 versus the prior year. The Company expects to provide a finalized fiscal year 2019 estimated tax rate outlook when it reports its fourth quarter fiscal 2018 results in May 2018.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws that are intended to qualify for the Safe Harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. "Forward-looking statements" generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "assumptions," "target," "guidance," “strategy,” "outlook," "plans," "projection," "may," "will," "would," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe”, "potential," or "continue" (or the negative or other derivatives of each of these terms) or similar terminology.

These statements are based on management's estimates and assumptions with respect to future events and financial performance and are believed to be reasonable, though are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially from those expected as a result of a variety of factors, including the impact of the Company’s advertising and promotional and new product development initiatives, customer inventory management initiatives, general economic and business conditions, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, consumer trends, competitive pressures, and the ability of the Company’s third party manufacturers, and logistics providers and suppliers to meet demand for its products.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have pursued various strategic initiatives and completed a number of acquisitions in recent years that have resulted in revenues that would not have otherwise been recognized. The frequency and the amount of such revenues vary significantly based on the size, timing and complexity of the transaction. In addition to financial results reported in accordance with GAAP, we disclose certain Non-GAAP financial measures ("NGFMs"), including, but not limited to, Non-GAAP Organic Revenues, Non-GAAP Organic Revenue Growth Percentage, Non-GAAP Proforma Revenues , Non-GAAP Proforma Revenue Growth Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense, Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense, Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense Percentage, Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS, Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow, Non-GAAP Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Net Debt. We use these NGFMs internally, along with GAAP information, in evaluating our operating performance and in making financial and operational decisions. We believe that the presentation of these NGFMs provides investors with greater transparency, and provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent these disclosures, because the supplemental data relating to our financial condition and results of operations provides additional ways to view our operation when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliations below. In addition, we believe that the presentation of each of these NGFMs is useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of results in assessing shareholder value, and we use these NGFMs internally to evaluate the performance of our personnel and also to evaluate our operating performance and compare our performance to that of our competitors.

These NGFMs are not in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered as a measure of profitability or liquidity, and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled NGFMs reported by other companies. These NGFMs have limitations and they should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to their most closely related GAAP measures reconciled below. Investors should not rely on any single financial measure when evaluating our business. We recommend investors review the GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release. When viewed in conjunction with our GAAP results and the reconciliations below, we believe these NGFMs provide greater transparency and a more complete understanding of factors affecting our business than GAAP measures alone.
