• Revenue was $241.4 Million in Q3 Fiscal 2019 as Previously Announced
  • GAAP Diluted EPS of $0.73 in Q3
  • Reduced Debt by $55 Million in Q3 and $155 Million Year-to-Date From Cash Generation and Divestiture Proceeds

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Feb. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc. (NYSE:PBH) today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2018.

“In Q3 our business generated solid earnings and cash flow, which was enabled by both our sales diversity across retail channels and continued brand success across our portfolio driven by our long-term brand-building efforts.  These portfolio attributes helped offset the previously announced retailer inventory reductions in Q3, and we expect these drivers of long-term value to continue in our coming fiscal year,” said Ron Lombardi, Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Consumer Healthcare.

Third Fiscal Quarter Ended December 31, 2018

Reported revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased 10.8% to $241.4 million, compared to $270.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  Revenues decreased 3.1% on an organic basis which excludes the impact related to the divested Household Cleaning segment and foreign currency.  The decrease in organic revenues for the quarter was primarily driven by inventory reductions at certain key retailers.

Reported gross profit margin in the third quarter fiscal 2019 was 57.7%, compared to 54.6% for the third quarter of fiscal 2018.  The improvement versus the prior year was driven primarily by the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment and the change in revenue recognition and the timing of related expenses.

Reported net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 totaled $38.2 million versus the prior year comparable quarter’s net income of $314.8 million, or $37.3 million in the prior year comparable quarter on a non-GAAP adjusted basis.  The prior year period reported results included a benefit from income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.73 for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $5.88 reported for the third quarter of fiscal 2018, or $0.70 in the prior year comparable period on a non-GAAP adjusted basis.

Adjustments to net income in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 included integration, transition, purchase accounting, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures, and the related income tax effects of the adjustments as well as income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Nine Months Fiscal 2019 Ended December 31, 2018

Reported revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 decreased 6.4% to $734.8 million compared to $785.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2018. Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 were driven by continued positive consumption levels across the Company’s core brands, offset by the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment in the second quarter of fiscal 2019.  Organic revenue decreased 0.8% for the first nine months as consumption gains were offset by inventory reductions at certain key retailers, changes in accounting policies around revenue recognition and the timing of related expenses, and the transition of new packaging for the Company’s BC and Goody’s brands.

Reported gross profit margin in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was 56.8%, compared to 55.4% for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.  The gross profit margin improvement versus the same period in the previous year was driven by the positive impact of the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment, partially offset by the change in accounting policies around revenue recognition and the timing of related expenses, as well as by the expected BC and Goody’s packaging restage.

Reported net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 totaled $103.5 million versus the prior year comparable period net income of $379.3 million, with the prior year period including a benefit from income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Diluted earnings per share were $1.97 for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to $7.08 per share in the prior year comparable period. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was $108.1 million, an increase over the prior year period’s adjusted net income of $105.3 million. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share were $2.06 per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to $1.97 per share in the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

Adjustments to net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 include integration, transition, purchase accounting, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures, and the related income tax effects of the adjustments.  Adjustments to net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 also include accelerated amortization of debt origination costs and a gain on divestiture.   Adjustments to net income in the first nine months of fiscal 2018 also included income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Free Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

The Company's net cash provided by operating activities for the third fiscal quarter and nine months of 2019 were $43.3 million and $138.4 million, respectively, compared to $47.1 million and $155.7 million during the same periods a year earlier.

Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow for the third fiscal quarter of 2019 was $57.2 million, compared to $44.8 million in the prior year comparable quarter.  Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was $154.9 million, compared to $156.2 million in the prior year comparable quarter.  The change in cash flow fiscal year to date was primarily driven by the divestiture of the Company’s Household Cleaning segment.

The Company's net debt position as of December 31, 2018 was approximately $1.8 billion.  At December 31, 2018, the Company's covenant-defined leverage ratio was approximately 5.1x.  The Company reduced debt by $155 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 through a combination of cash generation and approximately $50 million from Household Cleaning segment divestiture proceeds.

Segment Review

North American OTC Healthcare: Segment revenues totaled $216.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to the prior year comparable quarter's revenues of $225.7 million. The third quarter fiscal 2019 revenue decline was largely attributable to inventory reductions at certain key retailers.

For the first nine months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the North American OTC segment were $647.5 million compared to $656.8 million in the prior year comparable period.  The first nine months of 2019 were favorably impacted by increased consumption among the majority of core OTC brands, but offset by inventory reductions at certain key retailers, the impacts of a change in accounting policies surrounding revenue recognition and the launch of new BC and Goody’s packaging.

International OTC Healthcare: Segment fiscal third quarter 2019 revenues totaled $24.6 million, compared to $25.7 million reported in the prior year comparable period.  Revenues versus the prior year were impacted by unfavorable foreign currency as well as differences in the timing of distributor orders and shipments.  Excluding foreign currency effects, International OTC Healthcare revenue for fiscal third quarter 2019 was approximately flat versus prior year.

For the first nine months of the current fiscal year reported revenues for the International OTC Healthcare segment were $67.4 million versus the prior year comparable period’s revenues of $67.6 million attributable to unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates.  Excluding foreign currency effects, International OTC Healthcare experienced revenue growth for the first nine months versus the prior year comparable period.

Household Cleaning: As previously announced, the Company sold its Household Cleaning segment on July 2, 2018 and used net proceeds from the divestiture to pay down debt.  For the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Household Cleaning segment generated $19.8 million in revenues with no reported revenue in the second or third fiscal quarters of 2019.

Commentary and Outlook for Fiscal 2019

Ron Lombardi, CEO, stated, “We executed against our long-term three-pillar strategy in the third quarter which drove continued strong free cash flow generation from our stable financial profile and allowed us to reduce debt by $55 million in the third quarter and $155 million in the first nine months of the fiscal year.  Our results positively benefitted from our long-term brand-building efforts against our leading brands as well as our sales diversity across retail channels, which helped blunt the impact of inventory reductions at certain key retailers late in the quarter.  Furthermore, our diversified portfolio of brands helped offset challenging incidence levels which were below our long-term expectations in certain categories.”

“We are reaffirming our recently updated fiscal 2019 outlook for revenue, profitability and cash flow.  Our consumer healthcare platform includes a strong and diverse portfolio of brands well positioned for continued long-term growth.  We remain focused on the execution of our strategy of brand-building, maintaining a strong financial profile and efficient and disciplined capital allocation and plan to continue using this approach to drive shareholder value over time,” he concluded.

Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This news release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the federal securities laws that are intended to qualify for the Safe Harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. "Forward-looking statements" generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "assumptions," "target," "guidance," “strategy,” "outlook," "plans," "projection," "focus," "may," "will," "would," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "anticipate," "believe”, "potential," or "continue" (or the negative or other derivatives of each of these terms) or similar terminology.

Actual results could differ materially from those expected as a result of a variety of factors, including the impact of the Company’s advertising and promotional and new product development initiatives, customer inventory management initiatives, general economic and business conditions, fluctuating foreign exchange rates, consumer trends, competitive pressures, and the ability of the Company’s third party manufacturers and logistics providers and suppliers to meet demand for its products and to reduce costs.  A discussion of other factors that could cause results to vary is included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2018 and other periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial results reported in accordance with GAAP, we disclose certain Non-GAAP financial measures ("NGFMs"), including, but not limited to, Non-GAAP Organic Revenues, Non-GAAP Organic Revenue Growth Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense, Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense Percentage, Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense,  Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense Percentage, Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS, Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow, Non-GAAP Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Net Debt.  We use these NGFMs internally, along with GAAP information, in evaluating our operating performance and in making financial and operational decisions.  We believe that the presentation of these NGFMs provides investors with greater transparency, and provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent these disclosures, because the supplemental data relating to our financial condition and results of operations provides additional ways to view our operation when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliations below.  In addition, we believe that the presentation of each of these NGFMs is useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of results in assessing shareholder value, and we use these NGFMs internally to evaluate the performance of our personnel and also to evaluate our operating performance and compare our performance to that of our competitors.

These NGFMs are not in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered as a measure of profitability or liquidity, and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled NGFMs reported by other companies.  These NGFMs have limitations and they should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to their most closely related GAAP measures reconciled below.  Investors should not rely on any single financial measure when evaluating our business.  We recommend investors review the GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release.  When viewed in conjunction with our GAAP results and the reconciliations below, we believe these NGFMs provide greater transparency and a more complete understanding of factors affecting our business than GAAP measures alone.

NGFMs Defined

We define our NGFMs presented herein as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Organic Revenues:  GAAP Total Revenues excluding revenues associated with divestiture, allocated cost that remain after divestiture and impact of foreign currency exchange rates in the periods presented.
  • Non-GAAP Organic Revenue Growth Percentage:  Calculated as the change in Non-GAAP Organic Revenues from prior year divided by prior year Non-GAAP Organic Revenues.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin: GAAP Gross Profit minus certain integration, transition, acquisition and divestiture-related costs.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin Percentage: Calculated as Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin divided by GAAP Total Revenues.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense: GAAP Advertising and Promotion expenses minus certain integration, transition, and acquisition-related costs.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion Expense Percentage: Calculated as Non-GAAP Adjusted Advertising and Promotion expense divided by GAAP Total Revenues.
