Fortune Brands Reports Solid Second Quarter Sales and EPS Growth and Raises Full-Year EPS Outlook; Announces Combination of Doors and Security Businesses

Highlights from continuing operations reflect continued solid execution:

  • Q2 2018 sales increased 5 percent year-over-year to $1.4 billion
  • Q2 2018 EPS $0.88; EPS before charges/gains increased 9 percent to $1.00
  • Company raises full-year 2018 EPS outlook: EPS before charges/gains outlook now $3.62 – $3.72 on sales growth of 6 – 7 percent
  • Doors and Security divisions combining: unified platform with approximately $1.2B annual sales to accelerate growth through innovation and scale

DEERFIELD, Ill.--()--Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced second quarter 2018 results.

“In the second quarter our teams delivered solid results overall and the performance in our Plumbing and Doors businesses was outstanding, again,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. “We have taken pricing actions to offset inflationary pressures and are well-positioned to accelerate earnings growth in the second half of the year, consistent with our 2018 outlook.”

Second Quarter 2018

For the second quarter of 2018, sales were $1.4 billion, an increase of 5 percent over the second quarter of 2017. Earnings per share were $0.88, compared to $0.90 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges/gains were $1.00, compared to $0.92 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $188.6 million, compared to $209.2 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $209.2 million, compared to $212.4 million the same quarter last year.

“The Global Plumbing Group continues to impress, with low double digit sales growth at our target 21 percent operating margin. Across the company, performance inside each business was at or above our expectations despite inflation which ran ahead of price in the quarter,” said Klein.

For each segment in the second quarter of 2018, compared to the prior-year quarter:

  • Plumbing sales increased 11 percent and 9 percent organically, led by growth in U.S. wholesale and China. Operating margin before charges/gains was 20.9 percent.
  • Cabinet sales declined 2 percent versus the prior year. Excluding exits from targeted U.S. homecenter and Canadian businesses in the prior year, cabinet sales increased 1 percent. Operating margin before charges/gains was 12.7 percent.
  • Door sales increased 20 percent driven by strong growth in all channels and continued share gains in wholesale and retail. Operating margin before charges/gains was 17.5 percent.
  • Security sales increased 3 percent driven by retail growth, partly offset by lower commercial growth due to timing of sales. Operating margin before charges/gains was 13.6 percent and was impacted by metals inflation which should be recovered as retail pricing improves second half margins.

Annual Outlook for 2018

The Company’s 2018 annual outlook continues to be based on a U.S. home products market growth assumption of 5 to 7 percent and an assumption of 5 to 6 percent growth for our total global market. The Company expects full-year 2018 sales growth in the range of 6 to 7 percent.

The Company raised its full-year 2018 EPS outlook before charges/gains, with a new range of $3.62 to $3.72 versus the prior range of $3.58 to $3.70.

The Company also expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $500 - $525 million for the full year 2018.

“In addition to delivering solid operating and financial performance, we successfully executed a number of important actions—to pivot our Cabinets business toward the most attractive parts of the market, and combine our Doors and Security business units to drive higher levels of scale, innovation and profitability. These actions should begin providing benefits this year while enabling us to drive profitable growth over the next several years,” Klein said.

Doors & Security Combination

Today the Company announced a plan to combine its Doors and Security businesses into a single business segment, “Doors & Security,” with combined results beginning in the third quarter. The combination will result in a new unit with approximately $1.2 billion in annual sales and operating margin before charges/gains approaching 16 percent, and is expected to:

  • Leverage strong leadership. The new unit is led by Brett Finley, previously President of Therma-Tru Doors. In his new role, Finley will continue to report directly to FBHS CEO Chris Klein.
  • Drive innovation and accelerate product development. Master Lock and Therma-Tru are both pursuing next generation connected locking and security applications, which will be scaled more effectively across a larger business unit.
  • Enhance platform scale. The combined business can more effectively attract high impact talent, while utilizing common systems and back office teams to improve profitability.
  • Improve and speed acquisition integration. A deeper and more robust team can drive business initiatives faster and more seamlessly integrate acquisitions.

“Over the last two and a half years, Brett has focused the Doors business on the most attractive parts of the market and simplified the business, allowing for an acceleration of innovation. This has resulted in a more efficient organization, impressive growth and strong returns. Brett plans to bring this approach to the Security business, and I am confident in his team’s ability to grow and create value for shareholders through the new structure,” said Klein.

* Free cash flow is cash flow from operations calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") less net capital expenditures (capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of assets including property, plant and equipment, and the proceeds from the exercise of stock options). Free cash flow does not include adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows such as mandatory debt repayments. Free cash flow is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that free cash flow provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions, repay debt and related interest, pay dividends and repurchase common stock. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

For the six months ended June 30, 2018, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax including the impact from noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $25.5 million ($20.8 million after tax or $0.14 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges and a net charge related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and tax expense associated with the 2017 sale of a product line of $6.1 million ($0.04 per diluted share).
 

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, diluted EPS before charges/gains is net income from continuing operations, net of tax including the impact from noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $0.8 million ($0.5 million after tax) of restructuring and other charges and a loss on sale of product line of $2.4 million ($2.5 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share).

 
For the six months ended June 30, 2017, diluted EPS before charges/gains is income from continuing operations, net of tax and including the impact from noncontrolling interests calculated on a diluted per-share basis excluding $4.7 million ($3.4 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share) of restructuring and other charges, asset impairment charges of $3.2 million ($3.2 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share) and a loss on sale of product line of $2.4 million ($2.5 million after tax or $0.02 per diluted share).

RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2018 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

 

The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.62 to $3.72 per share. For the full year, on a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS from continuing operations to be in the range of $3.34 to $3.44 per share and including the full year impact of previously announced restructuring actions. Reconciliation of non-GAAP diluted EPS guidance to GAAP diluted EPS guidance cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to gains and losses associated with our defined benefit plans and restructuring and other charges, which are excluded from the diluted EPS before charges/gains. In addition, the Company's GAAP EPS range assumes the Company incurs no gains or losses associated with its defined benefit plans during 2018.
