Newell Brands Announces Second Quarter 2019 Results

August 2, 2019

Delivers Significant Improvements in Operating Margin and Operating Cash Flow
Raises Guidance for 2019 Operating Cash Flow
Announces Intention to Retain Rubbermaid Commercial Products Business

HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2019-- Newell Brands (NASDAQ: NWL) today announced its second quarter 2019 financial results.

“The financial results we announced this morning represent another quarter of progress, with disciplined cost management and focused execution behind working capital initiatives driving better than expected margin and cash flow progression in the second quarter,” said Chris Peterson, Newell Brands Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “Encouraging first half results and the green shoots of progress we are driving across the business give us the confidence to reiterate our outlook for full year core sales, operating margin and earnings per share and to raise our full year outlook for operating cash flow to between $600 and $800 million. While still early in the organization’s turnaround, we believe our decisive and strategic actions to strengthen our performance will drive further improvement going forward, as we work to transform Newell Brands into a leading next-generation consumer products company.”

Second Quarter 2019 Executive Summary

  • Net sales from continuing operations were $2.1 billion, a decline of 3.9 percent compared with the prior year period.
  • Core sales from continuing operations declined 1.1 percent from the prior year period.
  • Reported operating margin was 8.4 percent compared with 3.8 percent in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 11.3 percent compared to 9.7 percent in the prior year period.
  • Reported diluted earnings per share for the total company were $0.21 compared with $0.27 in the prior year period.
  • Normalized diluted earnings per share for the total company were $0.45 compared with $0.78 in the prior year period.
  • Operating cash flow was $191 million, a $180 million improvement versus a year ago.
  • Gross debt was reduced by $517 million in the quarter; net debt was reduced by $777 million.
  • Divestitures of Process Solutions and Rexair were completed and an agreement was signed to divest the U.S. Playing Cards business, which is anticipated to close in the second half of 2019.
  • The company announced its decision to retain the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business, which has previously been included in discontinued operations. The addition of Rubbermaid Commercial Products to the continuing operations portfolio will be accretive to operating margins, normalized earnings per share and operating cash flow in 2020 and future years.
  • The company announced its decision to move its corporate headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia, in order to facilitate a stronger connection between senior leaders and the operations of the business, and to enhance the company’s culture and sense of community. Three of Newell’s seven operating divisions (Writing, Baby and Food) are based in Atlanta.

Second Quarter 2019 Operating Results

Net sales were $2.1 billion, a 3.9 percent decline compared to the prior year period, attributable to the impact of foreign exchange and a 1.1 percent decline in core sales.

Reported gross margin was 35.3 percent compared with 35.2 percent in the prior year period, as pricing, productivity and positive mix offset headwinds from foreign exchange, tariffs and inflation. Normalized gross margin was 35.6 percent compared with 35.1 percent in the prior year period.

Reported operating income was $178 million compared with $83.9 million in the prior year period, due to gross margin expansion and a reduction in overhead costs. Normalized operating income was $240 million compared with $214 million in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was 8.4 percent compared with 3.8 percent in the prior year. Normalized operating margin was 11.3 percent compared to 9.7 percent in the prior year period.

Reported tax expense was $16.7 million, or 16.8 percent, compared with $53.0 million in the prior year period. Normalized tax expense was $41.1 million, or 25.4 percent, compared with a benefit of $0.7 million in the prior year period.

The company reported net income of $89.8 million compared with $132 million in the prior year period. Reported diluted earnings per share for the total company were $0.21 compared with $0.27 in the prior year period.

Normalized net income for the total company was $190 million, or $0.45 diluted earnings per share, compared with $379 million, or $0.78 diluted earnings per share, in the prior year period.

Operating cash flow was $191 million compared with $11.2 million in the prior year period, primarily enabled by strategic actions taken to improve cash conversion cycles on receivables and payables.

An explanation of non-GAAP measures and a reconciliation of these non-GAAP results to comparable GAAP measures is included in the tables attached to this release.

Second Quarter 2019 Operating Segment Results

The Learning & Development segment generated net sales of $849 million compared with $839 million in the prior year period, as core sales growth more than offset the headwind from foreign exchange. Core sales increased 3.5 percent, driven by increases in both Baby and Writing. Reported operating income was $217 million compared with $196 million in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was 25.6 percent compared with 23.3 percent in the prior year period. Normalized operating income was $221 million versus $207 million in the year-ago period. Normalized operating margin was 26.1 percent compared with 24.7 percent in the prior year period.

The Food & Appliances segment generated net sales of $562 million compared with $620 million in the prior year period, due primarily to the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange and a core sales decrease of 7.1 percent. The core sales decline largely reflected a timing shift in orders from the second quarter to the first quarter associated with an SAP implementation in Fresh Preserving, and continued challenges in the Appliances business. Reported operating income was $33.5 million compared with $39.5 million in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was 6.0 percent compared with 6.4 percent in the prior year period. Normalized operating income was $43.1 million versus $47.6 million in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 7.7 percent, the same as in the prior year period.

The Home & Outdoor Living segment generated net sales of $705 million compared with $742 million in the prior year period, with the change attributed to the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange, the exit of 72 underperforming Yankee Candle retail stores in the first half of 2019 and a core sales decline of 1.1 percent. The Home Fragrance and Connected Home and Security divisions posted positive core sales, which were offset by lower core sales in Outdoor and Recreation largely due to the impact of lost distribution in the prior year. Reported operating income was $19.2 million compared with operating income of $9.4 million in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was 2.7 percent compared with 1.3 percent in the prior year period. Normalized operating income was $39.7 million compared with $48.4 million in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 5.6 percent compared with 6.5 percent in the prior year period.

Strategic Changes to Continuing Portfolio

The company announced its intent to retain the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business, including the related Rubbermaid Outdoor, Closet, Refuse and Garage business lines, which has been classified as held for sale and discontinued operations. The decision to keep the business was based on the strength of the Rubbermaid Commercial Products brand, its competitive position in a large and growing category, and its track record of strong cash flow generation, sales growth and strong margins that will further enhance the value creation opportunity for Newell Brands. Beginning in the third quarter, the financial results of the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business will be reflected in continuing operations, rather than recorded in discontinued operations. The retention of Rubbermaid Commercial Products will be accretive to operating margins, normalized earnings per share and operating cash flow in 2020 and future years.

The remaining assets held for sale, which include U.S. Playing Cards, Mapa/Spontex and Quickie (a cleaning tools business that was formerly part of the same disposal group as the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business) will continue to be reflected in discontinued operations. Divestitures of these businesses are expected to be completed by year-end 2019 and to generate between $675 and $775 million in after-tax proceeds. The company now expects to achieve a gross debt to EBITDA leverage ratio of less than 4.0x by the end of 2019, and approximately 3.5x by the end of 2020.

The company’s outlook for full year and third quarter net sales, core sales and normalized operating margin have been updated to reflect the inclusion of Rubbermaid Commercial Products as part of continuing operations beginning in the third quarter. In the interest of comparability, the company has provided an adjusted view of its 2018 and Q3 2018 normalized financial results as they would have appeared had Rubbermaid Commercial Products been part of continuing operations in that period. This adjusted information can be found in the appendix to this press release and in the Investors section of the company’s website, www.newellbrands.com. As a result of the move to continuing operations, the company will resume depreciation expense for the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business, with the annualized impact estimated at approximately $35 million. (Under GAAP, assets held for sale are not depreciated.) Since the company’s previous guidance assumed the Rubbermaid Commercial Products business would be divested at year-end 2019, the incremental depreciation expense is the only incremental impact on the outlook for full year normalized earnings per share; the outlook for operating cash flow is not impacted by this change.

The net sales, core sales and normalized operating margin outlooks reflect expected results from continuing operations only. Normalized earnings per share and operating cash flow guidance reflects the total company outlook. Full year operating cash flow guidance assumes approximately $50 million in cash taxes and transaction costs related to divestitures and approximately $200 million of restructuring and related cash costs.

The company has presented forward-looking statements regarding core sales, normalized operating margin, normalized earnings per share and gross debt to EBITDA leverage ratio. These non-GAAP financial measures are derived by excluding certain amounts, expenses or income from the corresponding financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The determination of the amounts that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures is a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts recognized in a given period. We are unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking normalized earnings per share for the total company or normalized operating margin to their most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures because such information is not available and management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of such GAAP measures without unreasonable effort or expense. In addition, we believe such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors. The unavailable information could have a significant impact on the company's full-year 2019 financial results. These non-GAAP financial measures are preliminary estimates and are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, among others, changes in connection with quarter-end and year-end adjustments. Any variation between the company’s actual results and preliminary financial data set forth above may be material.

Conference Call

The company’s second quarter 2019 earnings conference call will be held today, August 2, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. ET. A link to the webcast is provided under Events & Presentations in the Investors section of Newell Brands’ website at www.newellbrands.com. A webcast replay will be made available in the Quarterly Earnings section of the company’s website.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This release contains non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and includes a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures that are included in this press release and the additional financial information both to explain its results to stockholders and the investment community and in the internal evaluation and management of its businesses. The company’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures and the information they provide are useful to investors since these measures (a) permit investors to view the company’s performance and liquidity using the same tools that management uses to evaluate the company’s past performance, reportable business segments, prospects for future performance, and liquidity, and (b) determine certain elements of management’s incentive compensation.

The company’s management believes that core sales provides a more complete understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales on a consistent basis as it excludes the impacts of acquisitions, planned and completed divestitures, retail store openings and closings, certain market exits, and changes in foreign exchange from year-over-year comparisons. Core sales for the second quarter and projected full year core sales also exclude the impact of returns associated with an expected recall in the Outdoor & Recreation segment. The effect of changes in foreign exchange on 2019 reported sales is calculated by applying the prior year average monthly exchange rates to the current year local currency sales amounts (excluding acquisitions and divestitures), with the difference between the 2019 reported sales and the constant currency sales presented as the foreign exchange impact increase or decrease in core sales. The company’s management believes that “normalized” gross margin, “normalized” SG&A expense, “normalized” operating income, “normalized” operating margin, “normalized” net income, “normalized” diluted earnings per share, “normalized” interest and “normalized” tax rates, which exclude restructuring and restructuring-related expenses and one-time and other events such as costs related to the extinguishment of debt, certain tax benefits and charges, impairment charges, pension settlement charges, divestiture costs, costs related to the acquisition, integration and financing of acquired businesses, amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions, expenses related to certain product recalls and certain other items, are useful because they provide investors with a meaningful perspective on the current underlying performance of the company’s core ongoing operations. “Net debt” excludes the impact of cash and cash equivalents, and the company believes it is an important indicator of liquidity and measure of capital structure strategy.

The company determines the tax effect of the items excluded from normalized diluted earnings per share by applying the estimated effective rate for the applicable jurisdiction in which the pre-tax items were incurred, and for which realization of the resulting tax benefit, if any, is expected. In situations in which an item excluded from normalized results impacts income tax expense, the company uses a “with” and “without” approach to determine normalized income tax expense.

While the company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the company’s performance, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for or superior to the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similar measures presented by other companies.

* Normalized results are financial measures that are not in accordance with GAAP and exclude the above normalized adjustments. See below for a discussion of each of these adjustments.

**Adjustments and normalized earnings per share are calculated based on diluted weighted average shares of 423.5 million shares for the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Totals may not add due to rounding.

[1] Restructuring and restructuring related costs of $17.6 million ($4.0 million of which is reported in discontinued operations).

[2] Acquisition amortization costs of $32.1 million; impairment charges of $13.9 million ($11.0 million of which is reported in discontinued operations) primarily related to goodwill of businesses held for sale.

[3] Divestiture costs of $9.8 million ($7.0 million of which is reported in discontinued operations) primarily related to the planned divestitures of The United States Playing Cards Company, Process Solutions and Commercial and Consumer Solutions businesses and the recently completed divestitures of Process Solutions and Rexair; acquisition related costs of $0.4 million; net loss on disposition of $7.1 million (reported in discontinued operations) for working capital adjustments related to the sale of the Waddington, Jostens and Fishing businesses (gain of $9.3 million), loss of $22.0 million related to the disposition of Process Solutions and gain of $5.6 million from the disposition of Rexair Business.

[4] Loss of $0.8 million due to changes in the fair value of certain investments; Argentina hyperinflationary adjustment of $0.8 million ($0.3 million of which is reported in discontinued operations); $9.0 million of other charges, primarily related to fees for certain legal proceedings and a product recall; and net tax adjustment of $11.4 million primarily related to foreign and state tax impacts of offshore earnings and a withholding tax refund received from Switzerland.

[5] The Company determined the tax effect of the items excluded from normalized results by applying the estimated effective rate for the applicable jurisdiction in which the pre-tax items were incurred, and for which realization of the resulting tax benefit, if any, is expected. In certain situations in which an item excluded from normalized results impacts income tax expense, the Company uses a "with" and "without" approach to determine normalized income tax expense.

*  The above unaudited Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended December 31, 2018  has been revised for immaterial out-of-period adjustments, the Company identified during the first quarter of 2019. The Company disclosed additional information in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three-months period ending March 31, 2019 and will disclose a revised Consolidated Statement of Operations for the year ended December 31, 2018  in the 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

[1] Due to a change in strategy, management recommended and the Company’s Board of Directors approved, the decision in July 2019 not to continue pursuing the sale of the majority of the Rubbermaid Commercial Business (Rubbermaid Commercial Products, Rubbermaid Outdoor, Closet, Refuse and Garage).  Commencing in the third quarter of 2019, the Rubbermaid Commercial Business to be retained will no longer be classified as held for sale nor be presented as a discontinued operations in the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three-and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018.

[2] For the three months ended September 30, 2018, normalization adjustments include $1.0 million of restructuring charges.  For the year ended December 31, 2018, normalization adjustments includes $2.6 million and $1.3 million of restructuring and impairment charges, respectively.  Such amounts were previously classified within income (loss) from discontinued operations.

[3] Excludes amortization of acquired intangibles related to the Rubbermaid Commercial Business of approximately $0.4 million as such expenses qualify as normalization adjustments and therefore are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.
