EWING, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2017-- Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE:CHD):

2017 Second Quarter Results   2017 Full Year Outlook
  • Reported sales growth +2.3%; Organic +1.8%
  • Strong International & SPD sales growth
  • 6% Domestic volume growth
  • Pension plan terminated, no remaining defined benefit liabilities
  • Reported and Organic sales growth of approximately +3%

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE:CHD) today announced second quarter 2017 reported EPS of $0.29, a contraction of 32.6%, reflecting a $0.12 charge related to the previously announced U.K. pension settlement, exceeding outlook. Adjusted EPS was $0.41 excluding the U.K. pension settlement. First half reported EPS declined 7.1% to $0.79. Adjusted first half EPS grew +9.4% to $0.93, exceeding our adjusted EPS outlook growth of 5%.

Second quarter 2017 reported net sales grew 2.3% to $898 million. Organic net sales grew 1.8% driven by continued strong international expansion and strong growth in the Specialty Products business. Organic sales were driven by volume growth of 6.2%, partially offset by 4.4% from higher promotional investments.

Matthew Farrell, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our organic sales growth. In the domestic business, market share gains and volume growth reflect the investments made in the quarter. Our targeted investment spending translated into significant share growth with 6 out of 10 power brands exceeding or meeting category growth. We continue to invest in our growing International business. In particular, we are establishing a new subsidiary in Germany in the third quarter. We have delivered strong first half results and are on track to achieve our full year revenue and earnings goals.”

Second Quarter Review

Consumer Domestic reported net sales were $678.2 million, an $8.4 million or 1.3% increase. Organic sales were flat as incremental couponing and promotional investments impacted net sales growth. Volume growth contributed 6.2% to organic sales offset by a decrease of 6.3% attributable to higher promotional investments. Growth in ARM & HAMMER liquid and unit dose laundry detergents, OXICLEAN laundry detergent and stain fighters, BATISTE dry shampoo and ARM & HAMMER cat litter was offset by declines in XTRA laundry detergent, FIRST RESPONSE pregnancy test kits and TROJAN condoms. Results were in line with the Company’s expectations as the business supported key new product launches with a significant increase in promotion and coupon support. Sales in non-measured channels continued to grow, especially online retail sales which increased 76%.

Consumer International reported net sales were $145.1 million, an $8.7 million or 6.4% increase driven by broad based household and personal care sales. Organic sales increased by 7.4%, driven primarily by FEMFRESH and BATISTE in the export business, ARM & HAMMER liquid laundry detergent, STERIMAR and OXICLEAN Stain Fighter Gel in Mexico and BATISTE, VITAFUSION and FEMFRESH in Australia. Volume increased 6.8% while favorable product mix and pricing added 0.6%.

Specialty Products reported net sales were $74.7 million, a $3.5 million or 4.9% increase. Organic sales increased 9.4% due to higher volume (+5.6%) and price (+3.8%) in the animal productivity business. Milk prices and U.S. dairy farm profitability remain at a higher level than a year ago.

Gross margin decreased 80 basis points to 45.7% primarily due to planned increased promotion and coupon investments in the domestic business.

Marketing expense was $130.9 million, an increase of $10.7 million or 8.9%. Marketing expense as a percentage of net sales increased 90 basis points to 14.6%, reflecting a shift of media spend into the second quarter.

Selling, general, and administrative expense (SG&A) was $156.3 million or 17.4% of net sales, a 460 basis point increase, primarily due to the U.K. pension settlement. On an adjusted basis, excluding the U.K. pension settlement charge, SG&A was 13.0% as a percentage of net sales, a 20 basis point increase due to amortization expenses related to acquisitions.

Income from Operations on a reported basis was $123.2 million or 13.7% of net sales, a 630 basis point decrease. On an adjusted basis, excluding the U.K. pension settlement, operating margin decreased 190 basis points to 18.1% of net sales.

The reported effective tax rate was 37.6%, compared to 34.7% last year. On an adjusted basis, the effective rate was 33.1%, excluding the U.K. pension settlement. The full year adjusted tax rate is expected to be approximately 33%.

Operating Cash Flow

For the first six months of 2017, net cash from operating activities was $249.3 million, a $47.2 million decrease from the prior year due to an increase in working capital partially offset by higher cash earnings. The working capital increase was primarily driven by $30 million in deferred and incentive compensation and higher inventories. Capital expenditures for the first six months were $10.4 million, a $7.4 million decrease from the prior year. The Company’s full year outlook for capital expenditures is now estimated to be approximately $45 million.

At June 30, 2017, cash on hand was $237.6 million, while total debt was $1,523.4 million.

Water Pik Acquisition

On July 17, 2017, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Water Pik, Inc. (“Waterpik”), the market leader in water-jet technology in both oral water flossers and replacement showerheads, for approximately $1 billion in cash. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval and other customary conditions, is expected to close in the third quarter. The business meets the Company’s acquisition criteria, with number one market share positions and an asset-light supply chain. Waterpik will be the Company’s 11th power brand. Waterpik’s net sales for the trailing twelve months through June 30, 2017 were approximately $265 million. The acquisition is expected to be neutral to 2017 EPS, inclusive of transition costs, acquisition-related expenses, interest expense and intangible amortization expense. The acquisition is structured as a stock purchase that the Company will finance with debt.

2017 New Products

Mr. Farrell commented, “Innovation continues to be a big driver of our success. In support of our long term strategy to drive revenue and earnings growth, we have launched new products in several categories. We launched ARM & HAMMER SLIDE cat litter, a revolutionary new litter that doesn’t stick to the litter box, which has shown excellent repeat purchases after only four months in the marketplace. ARM & HAMMER PLUS OXICLEAN unit dose 3-in-1 POWER PAKS laundry detergent has contributed to ARM & HAMMER unit dose laundry detergent growing share at twice the category rate for the fifth consecutive quarter. The OXICLEAN liquid laundry detergent restage with improved efficacy, claims and packaging continues to build momentum as the restage progresses. TROJAN launched a new XOXO upscale condom targeting both men and women with a soft touch, aloe-lubricated latex in a unique portable carrying case. We have expanded offerings and distribution of the BATISTE brand, leveraging its #1 U.S. share position in the dry shampoo category.”

Outlook

With regard to 2017, Mr. Farrell said, “This will be an exciting year for Church & Dwight based on our continued focus on innovation. Although categories are growing slower than expected due to continued discounting, we are confident in achieving our 2017 business targets. We expect reported and organic sales growth of approximately 3%. As a result of productivity programs and margin accretive acquisitions, we expect reported and adjusted gross margin to expand by approximately 50 and 40 basis points, respectively. Reported operating margin is expected to decrease 70 basis points or increase 30 basis points when adjusted to exclude the pension (Q2) and Brazil (Q1) charges.”

Mr. Farrell said, “On a reported basis, EPS is expected to be $1.79 per share, which includes a $0.01 negative impact from the Brazil charge, $0.12 negative impact from the U.K. pension settlement and no net impact from the Waterpik acquisition. Excluding the charges, we expect to achieve 8.5% adjusted EPS growth or $1.92 per share. In 2017, we expect adjusted free cash flow to exceed adjusted net income as we have in previous years. In 2018, as previously announced, we expect approximately 9% EPS growth.”

In conclusion, Mr. Farrell said, “For the third quarter, we expect reported and organic sales growth of 3.5%. In our domestic business, organic sales growth is expected to be approximately 3%. We expect reported and adjusted EPS of $0.46 in the third quarter including a $0.02 net dilution from Waterpik acquisition expenses.”

Non-GAAP Measures:

The following discussion addresses the non-GAAP measures used in this press release and reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures. The following non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures provided by other companies due to differences in methods of calculation and items and events being excluded.

Organic Sales Growth:

This press release provides information regarding organic sales growth, namely net sales growth excluding the effect of acquisitions, divestitures and foreign exchange rate changes. Management believes that the presentation of organic sales growth is useful to investors because it enables them to assess, on a consistent basis, sales trends related to products that were marketed by the Company during the entirety of relevant periods, excluding the impact of acquisitions, divestitures and excluding foreign exchange rate changes that are out of the control of, and do not reflect the performance of, the Company and management.

Adjusted Gross Margin:

This press release provides information regarding adjusted gross margin, namely gross margin excluding the effect of charges taken in 2016 and 2017 related to the Brazil Specialty Products business. We believe that excluding these charges from gross margin provides a useful measure of the Company’s ongoing operating performance and a more effective comparison to prior periods by excluding significant one-time events.

Adjusted SG&A:

This press release presents information regarding adjusted SG&A, namely selling, general and administrative expenses excluding 2017 charges related to the Brazil Specialty Products business and a 2017 settlement charge related to our U.K. pension. We believe that this metric enhances investors’ understanding of the Company’s year over year expenses by excluding certain significant one-time items.

Adjusted Operating Income and Margin:

This press release provides information regarding adjusted operating income and margin, which exclude the effect of charges taken in 2016 and in 2017 related to the Brazil Specialty Products business and the settlement charge related to our U.K. pension. We believe that excluding these charges from operating income and margin provides a useful measure of the Company’s ongoing operating performance and a more effective comparison to prior periods by excluding significant one-time events.

Adjusted EPS:

This press release also presents adjusted EPS, namely, earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP, as adjusted to exclude significant one-time items that are not indicative of the Company’s period to period performance. We believe that this metric provides investors a useful perspective of underlying business trends and results and provides useful supplemental information regarding our year over year earnings per share growth. Adjusted and forecasted EPS for 2017 excludes charges related to the Brazil Specialty Products business and the settlement charges related to our U.K. pension. Adjusted EPS for 2016 excludes charges related to the Brazil Specialty Products business.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow as Percentage of Adjusted Net Income:

Free cash flow is defined as cash from operating activities less capital expenditures. Adjusted free cash flow as percentage of adjusted net income is defined as the ratio of free cash flow to net income excluding the Brazil Specialty Products business and the settlement charges related to our U.K. pension. Management views this as a measure of how effective the Company manages its cash flow relating to working capital and capital expenditures.
