November 1, 2019

Delivers Normalized Operating Margin and EPS and Operating Cash Flow Ahead of Outlook
Raises Guidance for 2019 Normalized EPS and Operating Cash Flow
Announces Decision to End Divestiture Program

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2019-- Newell Brands (NASDAQ: NWL) today announced its third quarter 2019 financial results.

“We are pleased with the progress the company is making on its turnaround journey, with third quarter operating margin, earnings per share and operating cash flow ahead of plan, fueled by a disciplined focus on productivity, overhead cost savings and working capital initiatives,” said Chris Peterson, Newell Brands Chief Financial Officer. “Stronger than anticipated performance thus far in the year gives us the confidence to raise full year guidance for normalized earnings per share to $1.63 to $1.68 and full year operating cash flow to $700 to $850 million. We are taking decisive and strategic actions to stabilize the company’s performance in the near term and return to sustainable profitable growth over time.”

Recently appointed President and Chief Executive Officer Ravi Saligram commented, “In my first 30 days, I have completed visits to all seven of our businesses, the eCommerce Group and the Design Center. It is encouraging that four of the businesses are experiencing core sales growth, online sales continue to build momentum and cash flow is increasing. I am energized by the resilience and passion of our employees and have appointed a new Chief Human Resources Officer to help maximize their potential. We will create a laser focus on driving sustainable, profitable organic growth through clarity and stability of direction, developing actionable insights that pave the way for meaningful innovation, enhancing the digital IQ of our businesses, reducing complexity and focusing the organization externally on delighting the consumer and customer.”

Third Quarter 2019 Executive Summary

  • Net sales were $2.5 billion, a decline of 3.8 percent compared with the prior year period.
  • Core sales declined 2.5 percent from the prior year period. Core sales increased at four of seven operating divisions.
  • Reported operating margin was negative 25.9 percent compared with negative 307.4 percent in the prior year period, reflecting the impact of impairment charges recorded in both years. Normalized operating margin was 12.7 percent compared to 13.2 percent in the prior year period reflecting higher advertising spend in the current year period.
  • Reported diluted loss per share for the total company was $1.48 compared with a diluted loss of $15.52 in the prior year period.
  • Normalized diluted earnings per share for the total company were $0.73 compared with $0.77 in the prior year period, with the year over year change largely reflecting foregone contribution from divested businesses.
  • Year-to-date operating cash flow was $424 million, compared with $182 million in the prior year, reflecting strong working capital progress partially offset by the foregone contribution from divested businesses.
  • The company increased its 2019 full year outlook for normalized earnings per share to $1.63 to $1.68 per share from $1.50 to $1.65, previously, and its full year outlook for operating cash flow to $700 million to $850 million from $600 million to $800 million, previously.
  • The company successfully completed a $700 million debt tender offer, strengthening the balance sheet.
  • The company announced today its decision to end its divestiture program and retain the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses, which were included in discontinued operations through the third quarter of 2019. The addition of these businesses to the continuing operations portfolio beginning in the fourth quarter is expected to be accretive to net sales, operating margin, earnings per share and operating cash flow in 2020 and future years.
  • The company adjusted its segment structure to encompass the move of Rubbermaid Commercial Products to continuing operations. It will now report in four operating segments: Home & Outdoor Living, Learning & Development, Appliances & Cookware and Food & Commercial.
  • On October 25, based on strong operating cash flow results, the company announced plans to redeem $300 million of 5% Senior Notes due 2023.

Third Quarter 2019 Operating Results

Net sales were $2.5 billion, a 3.8 percent decline compared to the prior year period, largely attributable to the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange and a 2.5 percent decline in core sales.

Reported gross margin was 33.1 percent compared with 35.9 percent in the prior year period, as productivity and pricing were offset by headwinds from foreign exchange, tariffs and inflation, as well as a cumulative catch-up adjustment to recapture the depreciation attributable to the inclusion of Rubbermaid Commercial Products in continuing operations. Normalized gross margin was 35.1 percent compared with 35.5 percent in the prior year period.

The company recorded an $835 million non-cash impairment charge in continuing operations primarily related to impairment of trade names in the Appliances & Cookware, Home Fragrance and Outdoor & Recreation divisions.

The third quarter reported operating loss was $635 million compared with an operating loss of $7.8 billion in the prior year period, reflecting the impact of impairment charges in both years. Normalized operating income was $312 million compared with $337 million in the prior year period, reflecting lower sales volume and an increase in advertising and promotion expense, which offset the favorable impact from tight cost control and productivity efforts across the organization. Reported operating margin was a negative 25.9 percent compared with a negative 307.4 percent in the prior year. Normalized operating margin was 12.7 percent compared to 13.2 percent in the prior year period.

The company reported a tax benefit of $291 million compared with a benefit of $1.2 billion in the prior year period. The normalized tax benefit was $58.6 million compared with a benefit of $78.3 million in the prior year period.

The company reported a net loss of $626 million, or $1.48 diluted loss per share, compared with a net loss of $7.3 billion, or $15.52 diluted loss per share, in the prior year period.

Normalized net income for the total company was $309 million, or $0.73 diluted earnings per share, compared with $361 million, or $0.77 diluted earnings per share, in the prior year period.

Year-to-date operating cash flow was $424 million, compared with $182 million a year ago, reflecting strong progress on working capital initiatives partially offset by the foregone contribution from divested businesses.

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. References to normalized results in the year ago period are based on normalized metrics that are adjusted to include Rubbermaid Commercial Products in continuing operations.

Third Quarter 2019 Operating Segment Results

The Home & Outdoor Living segment generated net sales of $723 million compared with $727 million in the prior year period, as core sales growth of 1.3 percent was more than offset by the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange and the exit of 72 underperforming Yankee Candle retail stores in the first nine months of 2019. The Home Fragrance and Connected Home & Security divisions posted positive core sales growth, which was partially offset by a core sales decline in Outdoor & Recreation. A reported operating loss of $181 million compared with a loss of $4.3 billion in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was a negative 25.0 percent versus a negative 591.9 percent in the prior year period. The improvement in operating loss and margin was primarily due to lower impairment charges in the current period compared to the prior period. Normalized operating income was $63.8 million compared with $82.5 million in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 8.8 percent compared with 11.4 percent in the prior year period.

The Learning & Development segment generated net sales of $824 million compared with $829 million in the prior year period, as core sales growth of 0.5 percent was offset by the headwind from foreign exchange. Core sales increased at both the Baby and Writing divisions. Reported operating income was $182 million compared with an operating loss of $159 million in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was 22.1 percent compared with a negative 19.2 percent in the prior year period. The increase in operating income and margin was primarily due to impairment charges recorded in the prior year period compared to none in the current period. Normalized operating income was $189 million versus $195 million in the year-ago period. Normalized operating margin was 23.0 percent compared with 23.5 percent in the prior year period due to higher advertising spend.

The Appliances & Cookware segment generated net sales of $430 million compared with $454 million in the prior year period, due to the impact of unfavorable foreign exchange and a core sales decrease of 3.7 percent. Reported operating loss of $595 million compared with a loss of $1.6 billion in the prior year period. Reported operating margin was a negative 138.3 percent compared with a negative 345.9 percent in the prior year period. The improvement in operating loss and margin was primarily due to lower impairment charges in the current period compared to the prior year period. Normalized operating income was $17.0 million versus $37.3 million in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 4.0 percent, compared with 8.2 percent in the prior year period.

The Food & Commercial segment generated net sales of $473 million compared with $539 million in the year ago period, reflecting a core sales decline of 11.3 percent and a headwind from foreign exchange. Reported operating income of $32.8 million compared with a loss of $1.7 billion in the prior year period. Reported operating margin of 6.9 percent compared with a negative 314.7 percent in the year ago period. The increase in operating income and margin was primarily due to impairment charges recorded in the prior year period compared to none in the current period. Normalized operating income was $89.9 million versus $106.5 million in the prior year period. Normalized operating margin was 19.0 percent compared with 19.7 percent in the prior year period.

Strategic Changes to Continuing Portfolio

The company announced its decision to end its divestiture program and retain the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses, which had been classified as held for sale and discontinued operations through the third quarter of 2019. Beginning in the fourth quarter, the financial results of the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses will be reflected in continuing operations. The retention of these businesses is expected to be accretive to net sales, operating margins, earnings per share and operating cash flow in 2020 and future years.

U.S. Playing Cards, currently under contract to be sold, will continue to be reflected in discontinued operations until the closing of the transaction, which is still expected to be completed by year-end 2019, subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals. The company now expects to achieve a net debt to EBITDA leverage ratio of approximately 4x by the end of 2019, and to approach 3.5x by the end of 2020.

The company’s outlook for full year and fourth quarter net sales, core sales, normalized operating margin and normalized earnings per share have been updated to reflect the inclusion of the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses as part of continuing operations beginning in the fourth quarter. In the interest of comparability, the company has provided an adjusted view of its full year 2018 and Q4 2018 normalized financial results as they would have appeared had Mapa/Spontex and Quickie been part of continuing operations in those periods. 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 Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses, with the annualized impact estimated at approximately $10 million. (Under GAAP, assets held for sale are not depreciated.) Since the company’s previous guidance assumed the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses 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 outlook reflects expected results from continuing operations only. Normalized earnings per share and operating cash flow guidance as well as net debt to EBITDA targets reflect the total company outlook. Core sales includes the results of Rubbermaid Commercial Products for the third and fourth quarters only and the results of Mapa/Spontex and Quickie for the fourth quarter only. Full year operating cash flow guidance assumes approximately $200 million in cash taxes and transaction costs related to divestitures, as well as restructuring and related cash costs.

The company has presented forward-looking statements regarding core sales, normalized operating margin, normalized earnings per share and net 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, normalized operating margin or net debt to EBITDA leverage ratio 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 third quarter 2019 earnings conference call will be held today, November 1, 2019, at 8:30 a.m. ET.

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 third 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” EBITDA, “normalized” interest and “normalized” tax benefits, 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, along with the net debt to EBITDA leverage ratio, are important indicators of liquidity and measures 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 benefit.

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.

  Totals may not add due to rounding.
   
[1] Restructuring and restructuring related costs of $27.1 million ($0.6 million of which is reported in discontinued operations).
   
[2] Acquisition amortization costs of $32.2 million; impairment charges of $1.1 billion primarily related to tradenames ($976.5 million) and goodwill ($94.8 million); $236.9 million of which was reported in discontinued operations.
   
[3] Divestiture costs of $9.2 million ($1.8 million of which is reported in discontinued operations) primarily related to the planned and completed divestitures; acquisition related costs of $0.1 million and net gain on disposition of $2.4 million (reported in discontinued operations).
   
[4] Cumulative depreciation and amortization catch-up of $39.7 million related to the inclusion of the Rubbermaid Commercial Products, Rubbermaid Outdoor, Closet, Refuse and Garage businesses ("Commercial Business") in continuing operations; loss of $1.1 million due to changes in the fair value of certain investments; Argentina hyperinflationary adjustment of $4.6 million ($1.2 million of which is reported in discontinued operations); $5.0 million of other charges, primarily related to fees for certain legal proceedings and a product recall; a loss on extinguishment of debt of $29.0 million.
   
[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 June 30, 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.

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 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 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. Management concluded in October 2019 not to continue pursuing the sale of the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses. Based on the financial profile of these businesses, as compared to the expected proceeds, the Company determined that retention of these businesses would maximize their value to the Company. Commencing in the fourth quarter of 2019, the Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses will no longer be presented as discontinued operations in the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

For the three months ended December 31, 2018, normalization adjustments include $1.2 million of restructuring charges and $11.5 million of impairment charges. For the year ended December 31, 2018, normalization adjustments includes $6.2 million of restructuring and $13.3 million of impairment charges. Such amounts were previously classified within income (loss) from discontinued operations.

[3]

Excludes amortization of acquired intangibles related to the Commercial Business, Mapa/Spontex and Quickie businesses of approximately $1.2 million as such expenses qualify as normalization adjustments and therefore are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.
