Business Wire

DEERFIELD, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced first quarter 2014 results and updated its 2014 annual outlook for sales and earnings per share.

“Our teams executed well in a quarter challenged by extreme weather across half of the country that was compounded by an expected lower level of new construction,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “We remain well positioned to deliver strong growth this year, offsetting some of the impact of weather in the first quarter, as the pace of demand reaccelerates. Our updated 2014 annual outlook has been revised to reflect the impact of the first quarter and calls for growth based on our continued share gains and the market recovery for both new construction and, more importantly, repair and remodel activity.”

First Quarter 2014

For the first quarter of 2014, sales were $966 million, an increase of 9 percent over the first quarter of 2013. Earnings per share were $0.24, compared to $0.22 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $0.25, compared to $0.24 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $62.1 million, compared to $56.6 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $65.1 million, compared to $62.4 million the same quarter last year.

“Excluding the estimated impact of weather, sales would have increased 13 percent for the total company and 14 percent for our combined home segments in the first quarter. Importantly, total company operating income before charges/gains would have increased 35 percent excluding weather,” Klein said.

For each segment in the first quarter of 2014, compared to the prior-year quarter:

  • Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry sales were up 19 percent. Sales included strong increases in the dealer channel, with continued strength in repair and remodel volume and mix. Operating income before charges/gains increased 34 percent to $20 million.
  • Plumbing & Accessories sales were even with the prior-year quarter, with growth in the U.S. wholesale channel and China. Operating income before charges/gains increased 1 percent.
  • Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems sales were up 5 percent. Entry doors sales were up 8 percent and windows sales were even to prior year. Operating income before charges/gains for the segment increased 3 percent.
  • Security & Storage sales increased 3 percent. Within the segment, security sales increased 4 percent and tool storage sales were up 2 percent. Segment operating income before charges/gains was down 2 percent.

“With winter behind us, overall consumer traffic is increasing as more homeowners are able to plan and design remodel projects,” said Klein. “As momentum begins to build through the second quarter, we are preparing for a stronger second half and our teams remain poised to deliver strong growth for the full year.”

“We also began to invest in incremental capacity to support long-term sales growth to approximately $6 billion over the next 3+ years,” said Lee Wyatt, chief financial officer. “In the first quarter of 2014, we made investments of 4 cents primarily for expenses related to planning, designing and the first stages of implementing incremental capacity in the cabinetry and plumbing segments. Through the balance of the year we will pace investments to ensure we continue to be aligned with the pace of the recovery.”

Company Updates Annual Outlook for 2014

The Company’s 2014 annual outlook is based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 9 to 10 percent. Based on the Company’s confidence in the housing market recovery and expectation to continue outperforming the market, the Company expects full-year 2014 net sales to increase 10 to 12 percent.

The Company expects diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $1.90 to $1.99. This targeted range compares to 2013 diluted EPS before charges/gains of $1.50.

The Company expects to generate $250+ million in free cash flow in 2014. The expected free cash flow is net of anticipated capital expenditures of $130 to $140 million, as the Company invests in incremental capacity and infrastructure to support multi-year growth. The Company also increased its quarterly dividend payment to 12 cents per share.

(a) Corporate expenses include the components of defined benefit plan expense other than service cost including actuarial gains and losses.
 
(b) Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is operating income (loss) derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the returns generated by FBHS and its business segments. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
 
(c) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs; "other charges" represent charges directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines, accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities and gains or losses associated with the sale of closed facilities.
 
(d) Represents actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Actuarial gains or losses in a period represent the difference between actual and actuarially assumed experience, principally related to liability discount rates and plan asset returns, as well as other actuarial assumptions including compensation rates, turnover rates, and health care cost trend rates. The Company recognizes actuarial gains or losses immediately in operating income to the extent they cumulatively exceed a “corridor.” The corridor is equal to the greater of 10% of the fair value of plan assets or 10% of a plan’s projected benefit obligation. Actuarial gains or losses are determined at required remeasurement dates which occur at least annually in the fourth quarter. Remeasurements due to plan amendments and settlements may also occur in interim periods during the year. Our operating income (loss) before charges/gains reflects our expected rate of return on pension plan assets which in a given period may materially differ from our actual return on plan assets. Our liability discount rates and plan asset returns are based upon difficult to predict fluctuations in global bond and equity markets that are not directly related to the Company’s business. We believe that the exclusion of actuarial gains or losses from operating income (loss) before charges/gains provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the business from period to period that may be considered in conjunction with our operating income as measured on a GAAP basis. We present this supplemental information because such actuarial gains or losses may create volatility in our operating income that does not necessarily have an immediate corresponding impact on operating cash flow or the actual compensation and benefits provided to our employees. The table below sets forth additional supplemental information on the Company’s historical actual and expected rate of return on plan assets, as well as discount rates used to value its defined benefit obligations:

DILUTED EPS BEFORE CHARGES/GAINS RECONCILIATION

Diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding restructuring and other charges and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans.
