Jan Zijderveld, Avon CEO, said, "In the second quarter, we continued to execute our Open Up strategy, with pricing and productivity gains which drove adjusted operating margin expansion and improved free cash flow1."

Mr. Zijderveld continued, "Our focus on productivity in the second quarter, including less discounting, more effective incentives, optimizing promotions and more favorable mix, led to a 5% improvement in Average Representative Sales with price/mix up 9%. We have continued to improve mix and tiering by increasing our focus on higher priced categories, like Fragrance, Skin Care, and product bundles. Faster development and launches of on trend innovation has allowed us to leverage pricing power on new items."

Mr. Zijderveld emphasized, "Recruiting and retention remain key areas of focus. Helping Her earn more money while we generate more profitable revenue is key to maintaining a healthier and happier Representative base and crucial to driving our future growth."

Gustavo Arnal, Avon CFO, said, "In the second quarter, we drove positive impact on adjusted operating margin and cash flow generation given our intentional interventions to increase productivity. A combination of pricing efforts and savings across multiple cost lines led to 190 basis points of adjusted operating margin expansion, despite unfavorable FX. We monetized non-core assets to self fund our Open Up Avon strategy. Free Cash Flow improved significantly, including working capital efficiencies."

  • Total Reportable Segment Revenue decreased 12% in reported currency and 5% in constant dollars. Price/mix increased 9%.

Other operating segments and business activities include revenue from the sale of products to New Avon LLC since the separation of the Company's North America business into New Avon LLC on March 1, 2016 and ongoing royalties from the licensing of the Company's name and products. Other operating segments and business activities in 2018 also included the business results for Australia and New Zealand, which the Company exited in 2018.

Second-Quarter 2019 Cash Flow Review (compared with second-quarter 2018)

  • Free Cash Flow improved $59.6 million compared to the prior year as cash proceeds from asset sales funded Open Up Avon initiatives and net favorability resulted from improved earnings and working capital.

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of continuing operations improved $17.5 million compared to the prior year, driven by higher cash generated from earnings and improved working capital, partially offset by an increase in restructuring payments.

  • Net cash provided by investing activities of continuing operations improved $42.1 million compared to the prior year, primarily due to net proceeds from the sales of the Rye office and the Malaysia Maximin business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: revenue, operating profit (loss), Adjusted operating profit, operating margin, Adjusted operating margin and diluted earnings (loss) per share. The Company also refers to these adjusted financial measures as constant dollar items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends and underlying business results. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, the Company calculates current-year results and prior-year results at constant exchange rates, which are updated on an annual basis as part of the Company's budgeting process. Foreign currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant-dollar growth rates. The approximate unfavorable impact of foreign currency on second-quarter 2019 Total Avon revenue was (8)%.

The Company also presents cost of sales, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, operating profit (loss), operating margin, income (loss) before taxes, income taxes, net income (loss), diluted earnings (loss) per share and effective tax rate on a Non-GAAP basis. The Company refers to these Non-GAAP financial measures as "Adjusted." The Company also presents free cash flow as an additional financial measure for liquidity. The Company has provided quantitative reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. See "Supplemental Schedule - Non-GAAP Financial Measures" within this release for these quantitative reconciliations.

The Company uses Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its operating performance. These Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes investors find the Non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the Company's financial results in any particular period. The Company believes that it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of the impacts of: 1) CTI restructuring initiatives; 2) impairment loss on assets and other items and 3) one-time tax items that are not associated with recurring, normal operations ("Special tax items").

The Special tax items include the impact on the provision for income taxes in the Consolidated Statements of Operations during the first and second quarters of 2018 due to one-time tax reserves of approximately $9 million and $6 million, respectively, associated with the Company's uncertain tax positions.
