DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 28, 2021-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS, the “Company”, or “Fortune Brands”), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced second quarter 2021 results.

“Our exceptional top and bottom-line results were once again driven by our teams’ outperformance,” said Nicholas Fink, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “We continue to delight consumers, serve our customers, and are being rewarded with above-market growth. We delivered share gains and increased profitability, both sequentially and year-over-year. Our Fortune Brands Advantage initiatives are working to offset inflation and supply chain headwinds while also delivering incremental investment funds to support our most critical growth priorities. Long-term fundamentals are solidly intact as the industry works to address years of underbuilding in our key U.S. market. Our execution in this strong housing market has enabled us to raise our outlook for the year. While inflation and supply chain headwinds will persist through the second half of the year, we are on track to deliver on our growth and margin objectives. We remain focused on our strategic priorities and intend to continue to outperform in any environment.”

Second Quarter 2021

For the second quarter of 2021, sales were $1.9 billion, an increase of 41 percent over the second quarter of 2020. Earnings per share were $1.55, compared to $0.83 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges / gains were $1.56, compared to $0.94 in the prior-year quarter, an increase of 66 percent. Operating income was $294.9 million, compared to $173.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges / gains was $297.5 million, compared to $196.7 million in the prior-year quarter, up 51 percent. Operating margin was 15.2 percent, compared to 12.6 percent in the second quarter of 2020. Operating margin before charges / gains was 15.4 percent, up 110 basis points over the second quarter of 2020.

For each segment in the second quarter of 2021, compared to the prior-year quarter:

 
  • Plumbing sales increased approximately 38 percent, or 33 percent excluding FX, the result of strong performance across the business. Operating margin before charges / gains was especially strong at 24.3 percent.
  • Outdoors & Security sales increased approximately 61 percent, driven by the addition of LARSON and double-digit sales growth of composite decking, doors, and security. Excluding LARSON, organic sales increased 26 percent. Operating margin before charges / gains was 14.7 percent, an increase of 30 basis points.
  • Cabinet sales increased 31 percent, driven by strong growth across all price points. Operating margin before charges / gains was 10.9 percent, an increase of 270 basis points versus the prior year.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Share Repurchase Authorization

At the end of the quarter, net debt was $2.1 billion and net debt to EBITDA was 1.7x. The Company had $460 million in cash and $430 million of availability under its revolving credit facility.

Year-to-date through June 30, 2021, the Company has purchased $156 million of its shares outstanding.

On July 26, 2021, the Company announced that its Board of Directors authorized the further repurchase of up to $400 million of shares of the Company’s common stock over the next two years on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable securities laws.

Update to Annual Outlook for 2021

The Company expects to continue outperforming a fundamentally strong housing market. The Company now anticipates delivering full-year sales growth in the range of 23 percent to 25 percent, or 16 percent to 18 percent excluding the LARSON acquisition. This reflects the Company’s revised assumptions of a global home products market now expanding by 10 percent to 12 percent, including growth in the U.S. home products market of approximately 11 percent to 13 percent.

The Company now expects EPS before charges / gains for the full year to be in the range of $5.65 to $5.85, representing an increase at the midpoint of 37 percent versus a year ago.

For 2021, the Company expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $675 to $725 million.

“The market for our brands remains very strong,” said Patrick Hallinan, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands. “We have increased our market forecast and coupled with our excellent execution in a challenging external environment, we are again raising our 2021 financial outlook. We are solidly on track to deliver our 2021 and longer-term financial objectives, while continuing to invest for growth. Further, we are also positioned to deploy capital to increase stakeholder value.”

  ** 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 disposition of assets including property, plant and equipment) plus 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.

  RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2021 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP   
                   
  The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $5.65 to $5.85 per share. For the full year, on a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS to be in the range of $5.49 to $5.69 per share and including the full year impact of previously announced restructuring actions. 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 2021.

  (1) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs.  
                       
  (2) "Other charges" represent charges directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, 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 total, we recognized charges of $2.3 million and $4.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively and $0.3 million and $1.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. In addition, in our Outdoors & Security segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense (LARSON) of $3.4 million classified in cost of products sold for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

At Corporate, other charges also include pre-tax expenditures of $0.3 million for banking, legal, accounting and other similar services directly related to the acquisition of LARSON classified in selling, general and administrative expenses and a pre-tax charge of $0.2 million for a loss on sale of a Corporate asset for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
