DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 25, 2018-- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced third quarter 2018 results.

“In the third quarter we experienced a slower summer market and the impact of Hurricane Florence on our North Carolina operations, which led to eight lost shipping days at the end of the quarter,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “Despite this our teams managed to grow sales and EPS, and consumer demand for housing and home products remains solid overall. Additionally the momentum in plumbing and doors continues to be strong, and the disciplined action we have taken all year on price and supply chain to offset inflationary pressures is having greater effect. In spite of market uncertainty, we are well-positioned to end 2018 on a positive note and accelerate our performance in 2019 with continued solid execution.”

Third Quarter 2018

For the third quarter of 2018, sales were $1.4 billion, an increase of 2.4 percent over the third quarter of 2017. Earnings per share were $0.69, compared to $0.83 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $0.93, compared to $0.83 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $147.1 million, compared to $199.5 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $190.6 million, compared to $200.1 million the same quarter last year.

“While the storm did cause a meaningful sales and profit headwind in the quarter, particularly in our plumbing group, we expect to make up for the delayed shipments during the fourth quarter,” said Patrick Hallinan, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands. “In the fourth quarter we expect our sales, profitability and earnings growth to accelerate in a market that should continue to grow solidly, even if at a more moderate pace.”

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

  • Plumbing sales increased 5 percent and 3 percent organically. Excluding hurricane impact, plumbing sales increased 9 percent, and 7 percent organically. Operating margin before charges/gains was 20.3 percent, and was 21.8 percent after adjusting for delayed shipments and stranded cost due to the hurricane.
  • Cabinet sales declined 2 percent versus the prior year. Excluding strategic exits from targeted U.S. homecenter and Canadian business, cabinet sales increased 1 percent. Operating margin before charges/gains was 10.8 percent, or 11 percent excluding hurricane impact.
  • Doors & Security sales increased 8 percent driven by continued, strong double-digit sales growth of our Therma-Tru doors, partly offset by low single-digit declines in security products due to temporary operating inefficiencies associated with a significant new product launch. Operating margin before charges/gains was 16.1 percent.

Annual Outlook for 2018

The Company’s 2018 annual outlook is based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 5 percent (from 5 to 7 percent prior) and an assumption of 5 percent growth for our total global market (from 5 to 6 percent prior). The Company now expects full-year 2018 sales growth in the range of 5 to 6 percent (from 6 to 7 percent prior) due to lower than anticipated sales volumes in the second half of the year, reflecting slightly slower U.S. and Canadian housing markets.

The Company also adjusted its full-year 2018 EPS outlook before charges/gains, with a new range of $3.41 to $3.49 versus the prior range of $3.62 to $3.72.

The Company expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $460 million for the full year 2018.

“Despite the increased volatility and uncertainty that consumers, shareholders and our employees have experienced in 2018 I am confident we continue to execute at a high level on a number of important actions, and that our efforts today will drive higher levels of scale, innovation and profitability across the organization,” Klein said. “In just the past three months we entered the high growth outdoor living category by closing on the Fiberon acquisition, and raised $600 million in new financing at a very attractive fixed rate with all three ratings agencies affirming our investment grade rating. I look forward to sharing additional details on our progress and plans at the investor event in Boston.”

Investor Event

The Company announced it will host its first investor event in Boston, MA on Wednesday, February 6 with additional details and timing to be provided in the coming weeks. The scheduled event will be webcast.

** 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 2018 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

                             
The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.41 to $3.49 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 $2.97 to $3.05 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 additional gains or losses associated with its defined benefit plans during 2018.
