Fortune Brands Reports Second Quarter Sales and EPS Growth; Continued Progress in Plan for Growth in a More Modest Housing Market

Highlights from continuing operations reflect solid execution:

  • Q2 2019 sales increased 5 percent year-over-year to $1.5 billion; 6 percent excluding FX
  • Q2 2019 EPS $0.97; EPS before charges/gains increased 3 percent to $1.03
  • Global Plumbing Group continues to outperform end markets; significant expansion of wholesale distribution in Fiberon composite decking
  • Company moderates full-year 2019 EPS outlook on softer overall housing market: EPS before charges/gains outlook now $3.53$3.67 on sales growth of 5.5 – 6.5 percent

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2019-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced second quarter 2019 results.

“In the second quarter our teams continued to execute at a high level in a soft market. The Global Plumbing Group continued to deliver above market growth and margin. Our cabinets pivot plan continued to reshape the business, with solid growth and margins in our focus segments. In our newly acquired composite decking business, we demonstrated the power of our Therma-Tru channel strength by adding a number of distribution partnerships, including the addition of OrePac Building Products, a large wholesale customer which greatly expands our presence in the entire western United States—a critical market for outdoor living products,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “I am proud of the progress we have made, particularly in a market that now looks as if it will grow only in the 2 to 2.5 percent range in 2019. We remain focused on our long-term value drivers, and we continue to execute on the plans for profitable growth in a modestly growing housing market that we highlighted at our February Investor Day.”

Second Quarter 2019

For the second quarter of 2019, sales were $1.5 billion, an increase of 5 percent over the second quarter of 2018. Earnings per share were $0.97, compared to $0.88 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $1.03, compared to $1.00 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $202.4 million, compared to $188.6 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $212.0 million, compared to $209.2 million the same quarter last year.

“Housing activity in the second quarter came in below our modest expectation—which was a headwind to our businesses along with wet weather conditions, particularly in May,” said Klein. “In response, we’ve continued to manage costs tightly across our businesses, while investing where we continue to see demand surge—particularly in value cabinetry products, and composite decking,” continued Klein.

 

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

  • Plumbing sales increased 5 percent, and increased 6 percent excluding FX. Operating margin before charges/gains was 22.6 percent.
  • Cabinet sales were flat versus the prior year, and increased 1 percent in the U.S. Low double-digit growth in value products was offset by softness in premium, semi-custom and Canada. Operating margin before charges/gains was 10.6 percent.
  • Doors & Security sales increased 19 percent, driven by the recent Fiberon acquisition. Segment operating margin before charges/gains was 13.7 percent.

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 (from 2 to 4 percent prior) and an assumption of 2 to 2.5 percent growth for our total global market (from 2 to 4 percent prior). The Company now expects full-year 2019 sales growth in the range of 5.5 to 6.5 percent (from 6 to 7.5 percent prior), reflecting the soft second quarter market and slower second half ramp up of building product demand in the U.S., and the weaker Canadian housing market.

The Company also adjusted its full-year 2019 EPS outlook before charges/gains, with a new range of $3.53 to $3.67 versus the prior range of $3.53 to $3.77.

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.

“Although the softer housing market overall prompts a change to our full-year outlook, we continue to win and take share in those areas where we are targeting growth: in-stock and other value cabinetry products, across plumbing broadly, and in Fiberon, where we continue to convert and attract new customers,” said Klein. “At a high level, consumers continue to be in a strong position, interest rates are low and housing demand remains solid. I am pleased with the progress we have made to position ourselves for growth in the second half of this year and into 2020, as the market begins to reaccelerate,” said Klein.

** 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.

  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 $3.67 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 $3.57 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 totaling $5.1 million and $8.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively, and $5.5 million and $5.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

In our Doors & Security segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense classified in cost of products sold of $1.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019. In our Plumbing segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense classified in cost of products sold of $1.7 million and $3.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, and compensation expense classified in selling, general and administrative expense of $2.5 million and $5.0 million, respectively, related to deferred purchase price consideration payable to certain former Victoria + Albert shareholders contingent on their employment through October 2018. In Corporate, other charges include $0.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 of expense associated with our assessment of the impact on the Company from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
