EWING, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2021-- Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE: CHD) today announced third quarter net sales grew 5.7% to $1,311.4 million. The Company continues to experience strong consumer demand for many of its products. Organic sales grew 3.7%, exceeding the Company’s outlook of 1.5% growth.2

Third quarter 2021 EPS increased 8.2% to $0.92 per share. Adjusted EPS, which excludes a positive acquisition related earn-out adjustment in both periods, increased 14.3% to $0.80² per share, exceeding the Company’s adjusted outlook of $0.701 per share. The higher earnings are primarily a result of higher-than-expected revenues from our consumer domestic business.

Matthew Farrell, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Our brands once again experienced strong consumption in Q3. Organic sales growth of 3.7% is on top of 9.9% organic growth in Q3 2020. In the U.S. we grew consumption in 12 of the 16 categories, with five categories exceeding double digit growth. Consumption continues to outpace shipments as supply chain disruptions continue. Global online sales grew 2.2% (on top of 102% growth in Q3 2020) and as a percentage of total sales has expanded to 14.3% in Q3.”

“I’d like to recognize all Church & Dwight employees around the world for their dedication to helping us successfully navigate another challenging quarter, especially our Supply Chain and R&D teams as the Company faces complexities of raw material and labor shortages at our plants, our suppliers, and third-party manufacturers which were exacerbated by Hurricane Ida. Their commitment to finding alternative suppliers while maintaining the quality of our products has been remarkable.”

“Although consumption is higher, case fill rates have recovered slower than expected and are well below normal levels. Hurricane Ida’s impact was substantial, resulting in limited availability of raw materials, which caused our fill levels to continue to be below normal. Consequently, we pulled back on Q3 marketing for products most affected by the shortages, especially household products. We expect supply availability issues to begin to abate in the first half of 2022 for most of our brands. With continued strength from consumer demand for our products, we are making significant capital investments in 2022 and 2023 to expand capacity in our factories as well as our supplier network.”

“Significant inflation of material, component and co-packer costs impacted our gross margin in Q3. Looking forward, we expect input costs and transportation costs to remain elevated in Q4 and expect significant incremental cost increases in 2022. In response to the rising costs, we have already taken pricing actions on 50% of our portfolio effective July 1 and October 1. We will be announcing pricing actions effective Q1 2022 on an additional 30% of our portfolio. Accordingly, as of Q1 2022, we expect to have raised prices on 80% of our global portfolio of brands. Due to the expected cost pressures, we continue to analyze additional pricing actions that can be put in place in 2022.”

Third Quarter Review

Consumer Domestic net sales were $998.1 million, a $43.5 million or 4.6% increase driven by household and personal care sales growth and acquisitions. Organic sales increased 2.8% due to higher price and product mix (+6%) partially offset by lower volume (-3.2%). Growth was led by ARM & HAMMER® clumping cat litter, ARM & HAMMER® Liquid Laundry Detergent, VITAFUSION® gummy vitamins, BATISTE® dry shampoo and OXICLEAN® powder.

Consumer International net sales were $227.0 million, a $13.4 million or 6.3% increase. The main drivers for this result are Europe organic sales performance (+8.8%), the Global Markets Group organic growth (+ 6.9%), and currency. Despite continued lockdowns, organic sales increased 2.3%, primarily due to higher volume. Q3 organic sales growth was primarily driven by WATERPIK® and STERIMAR® in Europe and STERIMAR®, FEMFRESH®, and VITAFUSION® and L’IL CRITTERS® gummy vitamins in the Global Markets Group.

Specialty Products net sales were $86.3 million. This was a $13.5 million or 18.5% (all organic) increase driven by strong demand. This growth was due to strong baseline demand across all categories, increased pricing for dairy products, and a tight transportation market for competitive imports. Milk prices have remained stable in the U.S. dairy market.

Gross margin decreased 130 basis points to 44.2% due to the impact of Hurricane Ida and higher manufacturing costs, including commodities, tariffs, transportation, and co-manufacturing rate increases, partially offset by productivity and price.

Marketing expense was $160.9 million, a decrease of $10.0 million or 5.9%. Marketing expense as a percentage of net sales decreased 150 basis points to 12.3%. Consistent with the prior quarter, marketing spending was lowered in Q3 as a result of lower fill rates and product availability.

Selling, general, and administrative expense (SG&A) was $116.9 million or 8.9% of net sales on a reported basis. Adjusted SG&A as a percentage of net sales was 12.0%, a decrease of 180 basis points due to lower incentive compensation and lower litigation costs. ²

Income from Operations was $301.4 million or 23.0% of net sales. Adjusted Income from Operations was $260.4 million or 19.9% of net sales, an increase of 200 basis points vs the prior year. ²

Other Expense of $12.1 million declined vs the prior year partially due to lower interest expense resulting from lower interest rates.

The effective tax rate was 20.4% compared to 17.3% in 2020, an increase of 310 basis points, primarily related to lower stock option exercises. We continue to expect the full year tax rate to be 23%.

Operating Cash Flow

For the first nine months of 2021, cash from operating activities decreased 18.1% to $653.6 million, a $144.6 million decrease from the prior year, as higher cash earnings were more than offset by an increase in working capital. The increase in working capital is primarily due to lower obligations related to incentive compensation and marketing. We continue to expect to generate $950 million of cash from operations for the full year.

Capital expenditures for the first nine months were $64.1 million, a $9.5 million increase from the prior year to support production capacity related to increased demand. Full year capex is now expected to be $120 million (originally $180 million) as spending for capacity projects is weighted towards 2022.

As of September 30, 2021, cash on hand was $180.0 million, while total debt was $1,794.1 million.

Share Repurchase Programs

On October 28, 2021, the Board of Directors authorized a new stock repurchase program under which up to $1 billion of the Company's common stock may be repurchased. The previously authorized share repurchase program has been terminated. Currently, the Company has approximately 250 million shares outstanding.

Mr. Farrell commented, “Our increased share repurchase program reflects the Company’s ongoing desire for stockholders to benefit from our continued strong growth and cash generation and is an indication of our confidence in the Company’s future performance. Importantly, the Company continues to expect to generate significant free cash flow. Our robust cash flow enables us to return cash directly to our stockholders while maintaining significant financial flexibility to continue to aggressively pursue acquisitions.”

Outlook for 2021

Mr. Farrell stated, “Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain disruptions and global economy challenges, we continue to expect 2021 to be another strong year both top and bottom line. Our categories are growing, and our brands are performing well. We now expect full year 2021 reported sales growth to be approximately 5.5% and organic sales growth to be approximately 4%, which is quite remarkable given we are lapping 9.6% organic growth in 2020.”

“We expect full year 2021 adjusted EPS growth of 6%, on top of 15% adjusted EPS growth in 2020¹. We now expect an incremental $170 million for the full year in input costs (previously $125 million) which are being partially offset by announced price increases, a reduction in coupons and promotions, and lower SG&A and lower marketing costs. This incremental inflation exceeds the partial year benefit of our pricing actions.”

Mr. Farrell continued, “As a result of these incremental costs, we now expect full year gross margin to decrease 170 basis points (previously we expected gross margin to decline 75 basis points) and adjusted operating profit margin expansion of 70 basis points¹. The 2021 effective tax rate expectation continues to be approximately 23%. Finally, our expectation for cash flow from operations continues to be approximately $950 million.”

“In line with our long-term strategy, we continue to pursue accretive acquisitions that meet our strict criteria.”

“While we expect consumption to continue to be strong in Q4, we expect reported sales growth of approximately 3% and organic sales growth of approximately 2% as we are temporarily constrained by supply. Marketing expense is projected to be 13% of net sales in Q4 to continue to support our brands. Adjusted EPS is expected to be $0.61 per share, +15% from last year’s adjusted Q4 EPS.”1

¹ This press release does not provide a forward-looking reconciliation of adjusted EPS to reported EPS and adjusted operating profit margin to reported operating profit margin, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, expected for the fourth quarter or full year of 2021, because we are unable to provide such a reconciliation without unreasonable effort. We have excluded the changes in the Company’s potential earn-out liability from our acquisition of the FLAWLESS business from our expected adjusted EPS and adjusted operating margin for these periods. We are required to review the fair value of the earn-out liability quarterly based on changes in sales forecasts, discount rates, volatility assumptions, and other inputs. Our inability to provide a reconciliation to GAAP EPS, and operating profit margin for future periods is due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting what these changes will be on a quarter-by-quarter basis or on an annual basis. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to our future results.

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 foreign exchange rate changes that are out of the control of, and do not reflect the performance of the Company and management.

Adjusted Selling, General, and Administrative Expense (SG&A):

This press release also presents adjusted SG&A, namely, SG&A 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 SG&A expense.

Adjusted Income from Operations and Adjusted Operating Profit Margin:

This press release also presents adjusted income from operations and adjusted operating profit margin, namely income from operations calculated in accordance with GAAP and as a percentage of revenue, each, as adjusted to exclude significant one-time items that are not indicative of the Company’s period-to-period performance. We believe that these metrics provide investors a useful perspective of underlying business trends and results and provides useful supplemental information regarding our year over year income from operations compared to our revenue.

Adjusted EPS:

This press release also presents adjusted earnings per share, namely, EPS 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 EPS growth.
