    Spectrum Brands missed earnings and revenue expectations, provides downbeat outlook

    Spectrum Brands Holdings Inc. reported fiscal fourth-quarter earnings and sales that missed expectations and provided a downbeat fiscal 2019 outlook. Shares of the consumer products company, which brands include Black and Decker, Pfister and George Foreman, were still inactive premarket. The net loss for the quarter to Sept. 30 widened to $115.8 million, or $2.31 a share, from $26.2 million, or 81 cents a share, in the same period a year ago, primarily because of the write off of goodwill, merger costs, lower profit and higher distribution costs. Excluding non-recurring items, adjusted earnings per share came to 79 cents, well below the FactSet consensus of $1.08. Revenue was unchanged at $787.8 million, missing the FactSet consensus of $801.0 million, as declines in home and garden and pet supplies sales offset growth in hardware and home improvement and auto care. For fiscal 2019, the company expects "meaningful" sales growth from continuing operations, and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $560 million to $580 million. The FactSet consensus for adjusted EBITDA was $635.8 million. The stock has tumbled 34% over the past three months while the S&P 500 has lost 4%.
