Highlights from continuing operations reflect solid execution:

  • Q3 2019 sales increased 6 percent year-over-year to $1.46 billion
  • Global Plumbing Group continues to outperform end markets; expansion of wholesale distribution continues in Fiberon composite decking
  • Q3 2019 EPS were $0.75; EPS before charges/gains were $0.95, up 2 percent
  • Company tightens 2019 full-year outlook for sales growth to 5 to 6 percent and EPS before charges/gains to $3.53$3.63.

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 23, 2019-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced third quarter 2019 results.

“In the third quarter our teams continued to execute well in a slower market than we initially planned and delivered solid performance while we continued to invest in our growth and take actions to overcome external pressures such as tariffs,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “Beginning in September and continuing into October we are seeing a pickup in the home products market from both new construction and repair and remodel. The improved demand, combined with actions we are taking to strengthen the Company and capture growth opportunities, should benefit us in the 4th quarter and set us up for a solid start to 2020.”

Third Quarter 2019

For the third quarter of 2019, sales were $1.46 billion, an increase of 6 percent over the third quarter of 2018. Earnings per share (EPS) were $0.75 compared to $0.69 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $0.95 compared to $0.93 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $168.0 million, compared to $147.1 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $203.2 million, compared to $190.6 million the same quarter last year. Operating margin was up slightly to 13.9 percent.

“We continue to make tremendous progress on our strategic initiatives to capture the most promising opportunities across the businesses and drive outperformance in an environment of more moderate growth,” said Nicholas Fink, current president and COO, and incoming CEO on January 6, 2020. “Our Global Plumbing Group continues to outperform the market in both sales and profit by driving innovation and leveraging our core brand strength. We are more aggressively executing the pivot plan in Cabinets to rebalance the business towards the segments with stronger demand and growth. The newly announced president of this segment will continue to position the business for margin expansion and growth. We are also securing broader distribution and investing in Fiberon as we build a strong competitive brand in the outdoor living category.”

 

For each segment in the third quarter of 2019, compared to the prior-year quarter:

  • Plumbing sales increased over 12 percent excluding FX driven by China and the U.S. Operating margin before charges/gains was 21.8 percent.
  • Cabinet sales decreased 2 percent versus the prior year, and were flat excluding Canada. In the U.S., mid-single digit growth in value products was offset by softness in premium and semi-custom. Operating margin before charges/gains was 10 percent, and in line with our target for the full year.
  • Doors & Security sales increased 11 percent, driven by the Fiberon acquisition. Operating margin before charges/gains was 14.5 percent.

Balance Sheet

During the quarter, we priced an offering of $700 million of senior unsecured notes maturing in 2029 at 3.25%, and maintained our solid investment grade ratings. The company also refinanced its $1.25 billion revolving credit facility in September.

“Our solid business model, consistent cash flow and strong balance sheet support the investment grade rating received from the three major rating agencies,” said Patrick Hallinan, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands. “With a longer duration across our debt structure at attractive interest rates, we have the liquidity to ensure the flexibility to invest for growth both organically and inorganically.”

During the quarter, the Company repurchased one million shares for approximately $50 million, bringing the year-to-date share repurchase total to two million shares for approximately $100 million. The Company has $314 million remaining on our current share repurchase authorization.

Annual Outlook for 2019

The Company’s 2019 annual outlook is based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 2 to 2.5 percent and an assumption of 2 to 2.5 percent growth for our total global market. The Company’s full-year 2019 sales growth expectation is tightened to the range of 5 to 6 percent, reflecting the slower ramp up of building product demand in the U.S., and the weaker Canadian housing market.

As a result, the Company tightens its full-year 2019 EPS outlook before charges/gains to $3.53 to $3.63.

The Company expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $480 to $500 million for the full year 2019, which includes accelerated investments in capacity and inventory to support new composite decking customers.

  ** 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.

DILUTED EPS BEFORE CHARGES/GAINS RECONCILIATION

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax less noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $5.7 million ($4.4 million after tax or $0.03 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, an asset impairment charge of $29.5 million ($22.5 million after tax or $0.16 per diluted share), the impact from actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $2.1 million ($1.6 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) and a tax benefit of $0.2 million.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax less noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $21.7 million ($16.6 million after tax or $0.11 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, an intangible asset impairment charge of $29.5 million ($22.5 million after tax or $0.16 per diluted share), the impact from actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $2.1 million ($1.6 million after tax or $0.01 per diluted share) and a net tax benefit of $0.6 million.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax less noncontrolling interest calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $16.9 million ($13.5 million after tax or $0.09 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, an asset impairment charge of $27.1 million ($23.7 million after tax or $0.17 per diluted share), a net tax benefit related to an update to the estimated impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 of $2.9 million ($0.02 per diluted share) and the impact from actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $0.3 million ($0.2 million after tax).

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax less noncontrolling interest calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $42.4 million ($34.3 million after tax or $0.24 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, an asset impairment charge of $27.1 million ($23.7 million after tax or $0.16 per diluted share), a net tax charge related to an update to the estimated impact from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and a tax expense associated with the 2017 sale of a product line (total net tax expense of $3.2 million or $0.02 per diluted share) and the impact from actuarial losses associated with our defined benefit plans of $0.3 million ($0.2 million after tax).

  RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2019 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP    
                     
  The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.53 to $3.63 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 $3.24 to $3.34 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 2019.

  (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 losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines, impairments related to previously closed facilities and the losses on the sale of closed facilities. In total we recognized $0.2 million and $10.5 million of expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively, including a $1.7 million fair value asset impairment expense associated with an idle manufacturing facility in our Doors & Security segment classified in cost of products sold, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. In addition, we recognized $5.6 million and $11.0 million of expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, associated with these initiatives.

In our Doors & Security segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense (Fiberon) classified in cost of products sold of $1.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018. In our Plumbing segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense (Victoria + Albert) classified in cost of products sold of $1.6 million and $5.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, and compensation expense classified in selling, general and administrative expense of $2.3 million and $7.3 million, respectively, related to deferred purchase price consideration payable to certain former Victoria + Albert shareholders contingent on their employment through October 2018.
