  • Organic Revenue Grew 3.2% in Q4 and 0.1% in Fiscal 2019
  • Reduced Debt by $200 Million and Repurchased $50 Million of Shares in Fiscal 2019

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prestige Consumer Healthcare Inc. (NYSE:PBH) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and twelve months ended March 31, 2019.

“We again executed against our three-pillar strategy in fiscal 2019, delivering solid earnings, cash flow and market share gains.  These performance metrics were further enhanced by disciplined capital allocation throughout the year and has us well-positioned for further long-term value creation in both our coming fiscal year and in the future,” said Ron Lombardi, Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Consumer Healthcare.

Fourth Fiscal Quarter Ended March 31, 2019

Reported revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 decreased 5.8% to $241.0 million, compared to $256.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.  Revenues increased 3.2% on an organic basis, which excludes the impact related to the divested Household Cleaning segment and foreign currency.  The increase in organic revenues for the quarter was primarily driven by consumption growth in the Company’s core brand portfolio as well as the previously announced change in accounting policies around revenue recognition and the timing of related expenses.

Reported gross profit margin in the fourth quarter fiscal 2019 was 57.4%, compared to 55.2% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.  The improvement versus the prior year was driven primarily by the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment.

Reported net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 totaled $139.3 million versus the prior year comparable quarter’s net loss of $39.7 million. A diluted loss per share of $2.68 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to a $0.75 diluted earnings per share loss in the prior year comparable period. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $37.6 million, an increase of 13.9% from the comparable prior year period’s adjusted net income of $33.0 million. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share was $0.72 per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to $0.62 per share in the prior year comparable period.

Adjustments to net income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 related to non-cash tradename impairments associated primarily with the Company’s Fleet, DenTek, and Efferdent brand names, a goodwill impairment and associated tax adjustments. The impairment resulted from an increased discount rate related to market risk assumptions as well as how the individual brands performed versus the original projections used at the time of acquisition, among other factors.

Adjustments to net income in fourth quarter fiscal 2018 included income tax adjustments related to the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and tradename impairment associated with the Company’s Beano and Comet brands and associated tax adjustments, and certain integration, transition, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures and the related income tax effects of the adjustments as well as accelerated amortization of debt origination costs, loss on extinguishment of debt related and other additional expense related to refinancing activities.

Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2019

Reported revenues for the fiscal year 2019 decreased 6.3% to $975.8 million compared to $1,041.2 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018. Revenues for 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 increased 0.1% for the fiscal year, as consumption growth was offset by inventory reductions at certain key retailers and the transition of new packaging for the Company’s BC and Goody’s brands.

Reported gross profit margin in fiscal 2019 was 56.9%, compared to 55.4% for fiscal 2018.  The gross profit margin improvement versus the previous year was driven by the positive impact of the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment, partially offset by the expected BC and Goody’s packaging restage and certain allocated costs which remain with the business following the divestiture of the Household Cleaning segment.

Reported net loss for fiscal 2019 totaled $35.8 million versus the prior year net income of $339.6 million.  A diluted loss per share of $0.69 for fiscal 2019 compared to a $6.34 diluted earnings per share in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for fiscal 2019 was $145.8 million, an increase of 5.4% over the prior year period’s adjusted net income of $138.3 million. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share were $2.78 per share for fiscal 2019 compared to $2.58 per share in fiscal 2018.

Adjustments to net income in fiscal 2019 and fiscal 2018 include integration, transition, purchase accounting, legal and various other costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures, accelerated amortization of debt origination costs and the related income tax effects of the adjustments.  Adjustments to net income in fiscal 2019 also included non-cash tradename and goodwill impairments, a gain on divestiture and the related tax effects of the adjustments.   Adjustments to net income in fiscal 2018 also included non-cash tradename impairments and its related tax effects as well as 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 fiscal year 2019 was $189.3 million compared to $210.1 million during the prior year.  Non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow in fiscal 2019 was $202.4 million compared to $208.1 million in the prior year.  The Company’s business experienced continued strong cash conversion but was offset by the loss of cash flow from the divestiture of the Company’s Household Cleaning segment.

The Company's debt position as of March 31, 2019 was approximately $1.8 billion.  At March 31, 2019, the Company's covenant-defined leverage ratio was approximately 5.0x.  The Company reduced debt by $200 million in 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 $214.9 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to the prior year comparable quarter's revenues of $212.1 million. The fourth quarter fiscal 2019 revenue increase was attributable to increased consumption among the majority of core OTC brands as well as changes in accounting policies around revenue recognition and the timing of related expenses.

For the fiscal year 2019, reported revenues for the North American OTC Healthcare segment were $862.4 million compared to $868.9 million in the prior year.  Fiscal year 2019 was favorably impacted by increased consumption among the majority of core OTC brands, but offset by inventory reductions at certain key retailers, soft incidence levels in certain categories and the launch of new BC and Goody’s packaging.

International OTC Healthcare: Segment fiscal fourth quarter 2019 revenues totaled $26.1 million, compared to $24.1 million reported in the prior year comparable period.  Revenues versus the prior year fourth quarter benefitted from consumption growth and the timing of distributor orders and shipments, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency of approximately $1 million.

For the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the International OTC Healthcare segment were $93.5 million versus the prior year’s revenues of $91.7 million, attributable to consumption and shipment growth in the Asia-Pacific region, including the Company’s Care brand portfolio in Australia.  Growth was partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency exchange rates of approximately $3 million.

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 subsequent fiscal 2019 quarters.

Share Repurchase Program Authorization

The Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $50.0 million of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock.  Under the authorization, the Company may purchase common stock through May 2020 utilizing one or more open market transactions, transactions structured through investment banking institutions, in privately-negotiated transactions or otherwise, by direct purchases of common stock or a combination of the foregoing in compliance with the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
               
The timing of the purchases and the amount of stock repurchased is subject to the Company's discretion and will depend on market and business conditions, applicable legal and credit requirements and other corporate considerations including the Company’s historical strategy of pursuing accretive acquisitions and deleveraging.

Commentary and Outlook for Fiscal 2020

Ron Lombardi, CEO, stated, “For fiscal 2020 we remain focused on executing against our strategy of brand-building, maintaining a strong financial profile and maximizing our capital allocation alternatives to continue to create long-term shareholder value.  We anticipate continuing to grow categories and increase market share, a cornerstone to our long-term success as a brand-building company.  This growth is expected to be largely offset by continued retailer inventory reduction and consolidation efforts.  We therefore expect total organic growth to be approximately flat for fiscal 2020.”

“We expect our consistent financial profile to continue in the upcoming year.  In fiscal 2020, we expect profitability to track similar to sales as we continue to lap the divestiture of Household Cleaning in Q1.  Our stable financial profile and profit outlook will enable a disciplined capital allocation approach in which we anticipate our primary use of cash being debt reduction and an opportunistic $50 million share repurchase.”

“We continue to benefit from a diverse portfolio of leading brands and retail partners and remain confident in our long-term top- and bottom-line growth prospects,” Mr. Lombardi concluded.

  Fiscal 2020 Full-Year Outlook
Revenue $951 to $961 million
Organic Growth Percentage* Approximately Flat
E.P.S. $2.76 to $2.83
Free Cash Flow* $200 million or more

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.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense: GAAP General and Administrative expenses minus certain integration, transition, acquisition and divestiture-related costs.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative Expense Percentage: Calculated as Non-GAAP Adjusted General and Administrative expense divided by GAAP Total Revenues.
  • Non-GAAP EBITDA: GAAP Net Income (Loss) less net interest expense (income), income taxes provision (benefit), and depreciation and amortization.
  • Non-GAAP EBITDA Margin: Calculated as Non-GAAP EBITDA divided by GAAP Total Revenues.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA: Non-GAAP EBITDA less goodwill and tradename impairment, certain integration, transition, acquisition and divestiture-related costs, gain on divestiture and loss on extinguishment of debt.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin: Calculated as Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA divided by GAAP Total Revenues.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income: GAAP Net Income (Loss) before certain integration, transition, acquisition and divestiture-related costs, goodwill and tradename impairment, gain on divestiture, accelerated amortization of debt origination costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, applicable tax impact associated with these items and normalized tax rate adjustment.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS: Calculated as Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, divided by the weighted average number of common and potential common shares outstanding during the period.
  • Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow: GAAP Net cash provided by operating activities less cash paid for capital expenditures.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Free Cash Flow: Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow plus cash payments made for integration and transition costs associated with acquisition and divestiture.
  • Net Debt: Calculated as total principal amount of debt outstanding ($1,813,000 at March 31, 2019) less cash and cash equivalents ($27,530 at March 31, 2019).  Amounts in thousands.
