Fortune Brands Reports First Quarter Sales and EPS Growth; Announces Share Repurchases and Increases Annual EPS Outlook

Highlights from continuing operations:

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced first quarter 2018 results.

"In the first quarter our teams delivered solid results despite the headwind from a more normal winter weather pattern, and I am especially pleased with the strong performance of our Global Plumbing Group," said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. "With overall housing demand indicators intact, company results meeting our expectations, the benefit from recent share repurchases and the full benefit from our pricing and targeted cost actions still to come, we are increasing our EPS outlook."

First Quarter 2018

For the first quarter of 2018, sales were $1.3 billion, an increase of 6 percent over the first quarter of 2017. Earnings per share were $0.49, compared to $0.50 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $0.56, compared to $0.53 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $119.4 million, compared to $111.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $124.3 million, compared to $118.1 million the same quarter last year, up 5 percent.

"We see strong momentum coming out of the new Global Plumbing Group team and their strategy, along with share gains in doors and security, and have again taken advantage of the opportunity to repurchase our shares at attractive prices," Klein said.

For each segment in the first quarter of 2018, compared to the prior-year quarter:

The Company announced that 2018 year-to-date share repurchases now total $400 million paid for approximately 6.4 million shares, of which $350 million occurred in the first quarter. "Cash was $244 million and net debt to EBITDA was 1.9 times at the end of the quarter. Along with our solid operating performance, we continue to have substantial flexibility to create incremental shareholder value through acquisitions and additional share repurchases," said Patrick Hallinan, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands.

Annual Outlook for 2018

The Company's 2018 annual outlook continues to be based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 5 to 7 percent and an assumption of 5 to 6 percent growth for the total global market. The Company expects full-year 2018 sales growth in the range of 6 to 7 percent.

The Company increased its outlook for EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $3.58 to $3.70, which compares to 2017 EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations of $3.08.

"We are off to a solid start to the year despite the impact of winter weather, and the demand for our home and security products remains strong," said Klein. "Overall we are growing in-line or above our market growth rate, and we now enter the busy spring selling season with the continued emphasis on growing profitably. We also remain sharply focused on driving incremental shareholder value, as we are busy evaluating a healthy pipeline of potential acquisitions as well as additional opportunities to repurchase our shares at very attractive prices," said Klein.

The Company also expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $525 - $550 million for the full year 2018.

* Free cash flow is cash flow from operations calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") less net capital expenditures (capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of assets including property, plant and equipment, and the proceeds from the exercise of stock options). Free cash flow does not include adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows such as mandatory debt repayments. Free cash flow is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that free cash flow provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions, repay debt and related interest, pay dividends and repurchase common stock. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

DILUTED EPS BEFORE CHARGES/GAINS RECONCILIATION

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax including the impact from noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $4.9 million ($4.5 million after tax or $0.03 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges and a net charge related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 of $5.4 million ($0.04 per diluted share).

For the three months ended March 31, 2017, diluted EPS before charges/gains is income from continuing operations, net of tax and including the impact from noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $3.9 million ($2.9 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges and asset impairment charges of $3.2 million ($3.2 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share).

RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2018 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.58 to $3.70 per share. For the full year, on a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.43 to $3.55 per share. Reconciliation of non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance to GAAP diluted EPS guidance cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to gains and losses associated with our defined benefit plans and restructuring and other charges, which are excluded from the diluted EPS before charges/gains. In addition, the Company's GAAP EPS range assumes the Company incurs no gains or losses associated with its defined benefit plans during 2018.

(1) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs.
 
(2) "Other charges" represent charges or gains directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include inventory obsolescence provisions, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines, accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities, and gains or losses on the sale of previously closed facilities. In addition, other charges include acquisition related inventory step-up expense of $1.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018 in our Plumbing segment and $2.5 million of compensation expense in our Plumbing segment related to deferred purchase price consideration payable to certain former Victoria + Albert shareholders contingent on their employment through October 2018.

Operating margin is calculated as operating income derived in accordance with GAAP divided by GAAP Net Sales. Before charges/gains operating margin is operating income derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges and asset impairments, divided by GAAP net sales. Before charges/gains operating margin is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the returns generated by FBHS and its business segments. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
