Highlights:

  • Q3 2012 net sales increase 7 percent year-over-year to $909 million
  • Diluted EPS $0.24, diluted EPS before charges/gains increases 45 percent to $0.29 vs. $0.20 in prior-year quarter
  • Company raises full-year 2012 outlook for diluted EPS before charges/gains to $0.86 - $0.88

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced results for the third quarter of 2012.

Net sales were $909 million, an increase of 7 percent over the third quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $0.24 vs. $0.01 in the prior year quarter. Net charges were $0.14 lower than the third quarter of 2011.

Diluted EPS before charges/gains was $0.29 vs. $0.20 in the prior year quarter, a 45 percent increase.

Operating income was $60.6 million, an increase of $39.8 million over the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $72.9 million, up 34 percent year-over-year.

"We had another very good quarter. We had broad strength in our businesses as expected, with sales growth in each of our segments," said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. "We achieved this success as the market for our products continued to improve, with double-digit growth in new housing construction and moderate improvement in spending for home repairs and remodeling."

For each segment in the third quarter 2012, compared to the prior-year quarter:

  • Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry net sales were up 6 percent, with operating income of $1.5 million vs. $7.8 million, and operating income before charges/gains of $13.1 million, up 64 percent. Growth came from product line expansion amid strength in new construction as well as a more modest pick-up in remodeling activity.
  • Plumbing & Accessories net sales were up 12 percent, with gains continuing in the U.S. wholesale business, as well as success in international markets, especially China.
  • Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems net sales were up 7 percent, with operating income of $9.2 million, up from a loss of $0.3 million, and operating income before charges/gains increasing to $6.2 million, up from $1.9 million, primarily on door sales growth in the wholesale channel.
  • Security & Storage net sales were up 2 percent, with security product sales growing at a mid-single-digit rate driven by growth in U.S. retail and global safety products.

"Our Cabinet sales grew nicely in the quarter, and our continued discipline on promotions coupled with our improving supply chain efficiencies resulted in a sharp year-over-year increase in operating income before charges/gains. Our Plumbing segment continued to capitalize on strength in the new construction market, thanks to our market-leading share with builders and wholesalers. Windows & Door segment sales benefited from the broadening of our distribution in doors and our strength in new construction, and profits improved as expected. Broader product placement, innovation and continued demand for global safety solutions led to gains in the Security & Storage segment," Klein said.

"This was another successful quarter for us. Our results reflect the growth in new construction, thanks to the work we've done over the last several years to position ourselves for a recovering market. Our teams are executing well and delivering results that are meeting or exceeding expectations we laid out for ourselves one year ago when we spun off from Fortune Brands. It has been an exciting first year as an independent company, and we believe our solid capital structure, strong brands, compelling product innovation and operational excellence will enable us to perform well in the future," Klein said.

"We improved upon our sound balance sheet," said Lee Wyatt, senior vice president and chief financial officer. "As of September 30, 2012, cash was $216 million, and debt was down to $345 million with nothing outstanding on our $650 million revolving credit facility. Our net debt-to-EBITDA before charges/gains ratio is 0.4 times."

Company Raises EPS Outlook for 2012

For the full year, the Company's assumption for the growth rate of the market for its U.S. home products remains mid-single digits, as new construction continued to show strength in the third quarter. At the same time, there was a more modest increase in repair & remodel business. The Company continues to expect its full-year 2012 net sales to increase at a high-single-digit rate.

"As we indicated last quarter, we expect our full-year sales to grow high single digits, but based on continuing unevenness in repair & remodel and due to our disciplined approach to pursuing sales growth that is also profitable, we believe our results will be in the lower end of that range," Klein said.

The Company is raising its full-year 2012 outlook for diluted EPS before charges/gains to $0.86 - $0.88. This targeted range compares to 2011 diluted EPS before charges/gains of $0.60.

"Our results in 2012 show that we can pursue and secure profitable business, and we plan to continue this momentum for the rest of the year and beyond. We remain confident in our ability to deliver on our outlook and outperform the market no matter the pace of the recovery," Klein said.

The Company increased its free cash flow outlook for 2012 to be in excess of $275 million. "Our balance sheet and free cash flow continue to strengthen, helping to provide future opportunities to drive incremental returns for shareholders," Wyatt said.

Diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment, and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Diluted EPS before charges/gains for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 have also been adjusted to reflect an adjusted pro forma effective tax rate of 35%, capital structure changes that reflect the borrowing arrangements and debt level of the Company as of October 4, 2011, the 1:1 share distribution resulting from the spin-off of the Company from Fortune Brands, Inc., estimated incremental standalone corporate expenses, and business separation costs. Diluted EPS before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the overall performance of the Company and 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.
 
For the third quarter of 2012, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $8.6 million ($5.7 million after tax or $0.04 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $3.7 million ($2.4 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share).

RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2012 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

 
For the full year, the Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $0.86 to $0.88 per share. On a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS to be in the range of $0.80 to $0.83 per share. In addition, on a GAAP basis, based on current relevant interest rate benchmarks and year-to-date pension asset returns the Company may incur additional defined benefit plan net actuarial losses in the range of $0.10 to $0.15 per share in the fourth quarter of 2012 due to declining discount rates since December 31, 2011, the last remeasurement date. Any actuarial loss will be based upon spot discount rates as of December 31, 2012 and our full year 2012 pension asset returns and may differ materially from this estimate. A 25 basis point change in our discount rate impacts our defined benefit liabilities by approximately $25 million.

2011 DILUTED EPS BEFORE CHARGES/GAINS RECONCILIATION

For the year ended December 31, 2011, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income (loss) calculated on a diluted per-share basis adjusted to reflect the actual number of diluted shares of the Company as of December 31, 2011 of 160.7 million, estimated incremental standalone corporate costs of $13.8 million ($8.6 million after tax or $0.05 per diluted share), an adjusted pro forma effective tax rate adjustment of $12.0 million ($0.07 per share) to reflect an effective tax rate of 35%, capital structure changes that reflect the borrowing arrangements and debt level of the Company as of October 4, 2011 of $14.4 million ($8.9 million after tax or $0.06 per diluted share), and excludes restructuring and other charges of $20.0 million ($12.5 million after tax or $0.08 per diluted share), business separation costs of $2.4 million ($1.7 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share), asset impairment charges of $90.0 million ($55.3 million after tax or $0.35 per diluted share) and the impact of income and expenses from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $80.0 million ($49.9 million after tax or $0.31 per diluted share).
 
Diluted EPS before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the overall performance of the Company and 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.

EBITDA before charges/gains is net income derived in accordance with GAAP including estimated incremental standalone corporate expenses for 2011 periods and excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment, business separation costs, the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, related party interest expense, net, external interest expense (income), and income taxes. EBITDA before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to assess returns generated by FBHS. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions and repay debt and related interest. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
 
(a) Depreciation excludes accelerated depreciation of $9.2 million and $9.7 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, and $1.1 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Accelerated depreciation is included in restructuring and other charges.
