Fortune Brands Home & Security Reports Strong First Quarter Results, Raises Full-Year Outlook16:02 EDT Thursday, April 26, 2012 DEERFIELD, Ill. (Business Wire) -- Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced results for the first quarter of 2012. Net sales were $799 million, an increase of 12 percent over the first quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $0.08 vs. a loss of $0.07 in the prior year quarter, and diluted EPS before charges/gains was $0.08 vs. $0.00 the prior year. Operating income was $21.3 million, an increase of $13.5 million over the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was also $20.9 million, up $17.6 million year-over-year. “We are pleased with our performance in the first quarter. We grew sales and profit more than expected, and we believe we continued to gain share while benefiting from a stronger-than-anticipated market,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. “Spending for home repairs and remodeling increased, although consumers are still cautious about big-ticket purchases, like cabinets. New housing construction was also stronger than expected in the quarter, with single-family and multi-family starts on the rise. While milder-than-average weather likely played a part in this home products market performance, we experienced strength across-the-board, even in geographies and product segments where weather was not a factor.” For each segment in the first quarter 2012, compared to the prior-year quarter: Plumbing & Accessories net sales were up 20 percent, with strength in the U.S. wholesale business and international markets, especially China. Security & Storage net sales were up 18 percent, on strength in retail padlocks as well as safety and tool storage products. Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems net sales were up 11 percent, on strength from new business and new construction market growth. Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry net sales were up 4 percent, driven by dealer channel strength and sales to builders. “Our Plumbing, Security & Storage and Windows & Door segments all had robust double-digit sales increases as our innovative products continued to be well received and we maintained the momentum in our market expansion activities. Our Cabinets segment met our expectations, even as cabinet industry growth predictably continued to lag the overall market for our products,” Klein said. “Our results this quarter are a testament to our strong brands, compelling product innovation and efficient supply chains. We look forward to building on ongoing market growth, but whether industry momentum continues or subsides, we believe we remain poised for lasting success and market outperformance. We have maintained our strong capital structure, and our companies are continuing their steady cadence of introducing innovative new products,” Klein added. “Our balance sheet remains solid,” said Lee Wyatt, senior vice president and chief financial officer. “As of March 31, 2012, cash was approximately $120 million, and debt was $431 million with a net debt-to-EBITDA ratio of approximately 1.1 times.” Updated Outlook for 2012 The Company is updating its outlook for 2012. For the full year, the Company's assumption for the growth rate of the market for its U.S. home products is now mid-single digits. Based on this assumption, the Company now expects its full-year 2012 net sales to increase at a high-single-digit rate. The Company now expects diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $0.77 to $0.87. This targeted range compares to a revised 2011 diluted EPS before charges/gains of $0.60. The Company's EPS expectations reflect the benefit of its expected higher net sales and related operating leverage, partially offset by strategic investments in the business. “We raised our full-year outlook based on our Q1 performance and an assumption that the current momentum of our U.S. home products market will continue,” Klein said. “However, forecasting the balance of the year remains challenging, given the variables affecting the market and the overall economy.” The Company increased its free cash flow outlook for 2012 to be in the range of $200 million to $225 million. “We believe our strong balance sheet and growing free cash flow provides flexibility to maximize shareholder value in a variety of ways in 2012 and the future,” Wyatt said.
