    Marketwired The Clorox Company
    February 4, 2016 6:30 AM
    
    OAKLAND, CA--(Marketwired - February 04, 2016) - The Clorox Company (CLX) today reported flat sales and 18 percent growth in diluted net earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations for its second quarter, which ended Dec. 31, 2015. On a currency-neutral basis, second-quarter sales grew 3 percent.

    "Our strategy continues to drive profitable growth," said Chief Executive Officer Benno Dorer. "We delivered 18 percent earnings growth supported by strong operational execution and commodity tailwinds, helping to drive gross margin expansion. Importantly, we also delivered sales increases in each of our U.S. segments behind continued strong investments in our brands."

    All results in this press release are reported on a continuing operations basis, unless otherwise stated. As previously announced, Corporación Clorox de Venezuela S.A. (Clorox Venezuela) discontinued operations effective Sept. 22, 2014. For the current and year-ago quarters, the results from Clorox Venezuela are included in discontinued operations in the company's financial statements. Some information in this release is reported on a non-GAAP basis. See "Non-GAAP Financial Information" below and the tables toward the end of this press release for more information and reconciliations of key second-quarter fiscal year 2016 and fiscal year 2015 results to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (GAAP).

    Fiscal Second-Quarter Results

    Following is a summary of key second-quarter results. All comparisons are with the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, unless otherwise stated.

    * $1.14 diluted EPS (18% increase)

    * 1% volume growth

    * Flat sales

    In the second quarter, Clorox delivered earnings from continuing operations of $151 million, or $1.14 diluted EPS, compared to $12

    Colgate Beats 4Q15 Earnings Estimates but Misses on Sales Again

    Colgate's 4Q15 Results: Earnings Bring Smiles but Sales Dwindle

    Colgate’s 4Q15 financial results
    Colgate-Palmolive (CL) released its 4Q15 earnings on January 29, 2016. The quarter ended on December 31, 2015. The company’s reported adjusted diluted EPS (or earnings per share) fell 3.9% to $0.73 per share in 4Q15 compared to $0.76 in 4Q14. Revenue was down 7.5% to $3.9 billion.

    However, in 4Q15, Colgate-Palmolive came in ahead of consensus Wall Street analyst estimates on earnings after being in line with the estimates for three quarters in a row. Consensus estimates had projected an adjusted diluted EPS of $0.72.

    Diluted EPS
    On a currency-neutral basis and excluding the after-tax charges on special items including its 2012 restructuring program, its Venezuela accounting change, and other foreign competition charges, the diluted EPS increased by double digits.

    Similarly, Procter & Gamble’s (PG) adjusted EPS fell 1.4% while core adjusted earnings per share increased 9% to $1.04 per share in 4Q15. Excluding the impact of currency exchange headwinds, currency-neutral core EPS increased 21% for the quarter. Adjusted EPS for Kimberly-Clark (KMB) also increased to $1.42 in 4Q15 compared to EPS from continuing operations of $1.35 in 4Q15. Clorox (CLX) is yet to announce its 4Q15 results.

    Venezuela operations
    During 4Q15, the company announced that it will no longer include the results of its Venezuelan operations in its consolidated financial statements. As a result of this change in accounting, Colgate recorded an after-tax charge of $1.1 billion, or $1.18 per diluted share, in 4Q15. This change reflected a significant decrease in the availability of US dollars and other government controls.

    As a result, Colgate expects that the change in accounting for its Venezuelan operation will impact diluted EPS in 2016. The company expects diluted EPS to be negative $0.10 for 2016. Colgate makes up 0.7% of the iShares Global 100 ETF (IOO).

    In the next article, we will look at Colgate’s revenue estimates and the components that accounted for the decrease in revenues in 4Q15.

    NORTH PLAINS, Ore., Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jewett-Cameron Trading Company Ltd. (JCTCF) today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 ended November 30, 2015.

    Sales were $11.94 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to sales of $7.98 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Income from operations for the quarter was $885,204 compared to $529,899 in the year-ago quarter. Net income was $532,245, or $0.21 per share, for the current quarter compared to net income of $327,787, or $0.12 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

    "The increase in sales for the quarter was due to our efforts to expand our customer base to new smaller and mid-sized customers, as well as the continued acceptance of our new products introduced during fiscal 2015," said CEO Don Boone. "The new products have been particularly well-received by our established customer base, which has led to sales increases with our largest customers."

    As of November 30, the Company's cash position was $4.36 million, and currently there is no borrowing against its $3.0 million line of credit. The Company has historically utilized its cash position by implementing share repurchase programs as an effective method of enhancing shareholder value. The Company's most recent share repurchase plan was terminated on July 17, 2015. The Board of Directors will consider implementing new share repurchase plans in the future as an effective use of the Company's cash position.

    Just in time to make it into the 2015 record books, a couple of big household-products makers may be on the verge of a deal.

    Combined Market Value

    $24 billion

    Newell Rubbermaid and Jarden -- companies with a combined market value of $24 billion -- are in talks to combine, according to a Wall Street Journal report late Monday. The union would put products from Mr. Coffee machines to Rawlings baseballs, PaperMate pens and, of course, Rubbermaid containers all under the same roof.

    Shares of Newell Rubbermaid and Jarden closed roughly 7 percent and 4 percent higher, respectively, and although the deal's structure is unclear, it makes sense for Newell Rubbermaid -- the slightly larger of the two, with a market value of almost $13 billion -- to be seeking out its biggest bet yet.

    Newell Rubbermaid's shares had climbed 18 percent this year before news of the deal on Monday. Last week, it surpassed the $45 mark, a feat it hadn't achieved since the middle of 1999.

    So perhaps it's no surprise that, buoyed by the company's best price in more than 15 years, Newell Rubbermaid CEO Michael Polk is thinking big despite what he's previously guided.

    At a Morgan Stanley conference three weeks ago, Polk said the company's priority was to make bolt-on M&A acquisitions, similar to those it had done in the past. He outlined about $5.5 billion of capacity over the next few years for deals, buybacks and an increased dividend.

    For his own part, Jarden CEO James Lillie said in April that company "would consider selling all of Jarden" if the right bidder came along.

    Jarden certainly wouldn't be a bolt-on acquisition: it'd be at least double the company's $6 billion acquisition of Rubbermaid in 1999, its biggest deal so far. But buying Jarden would give it a more diverse stable of brands, including Coleman coolers, Bicycle playing cards and the recently added Waddington food containers and Jostens class rings and yearbooks.
