Fortune Brands Home & Security Continues Sales and Profit Growth in Second Quarter, Reaffirms Annual Outlook16:01 EDT Thursday, July 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 second quarter of 2012. Net sales were $935 million, an increase of 5 percent over the second quarter of 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $0.29 vs. $0.28 in the prior year quarter, and diluted EPS before charges/gains was $0.29 vs. $0.24 the prior year, a 21 percent increase. Operating income was $72.3 million, an increase of 11 percent over the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $72.7 million, up 18 percent year-over-year. “We had a very good second quarter. We met our expectations for sales growth and exceeded them for profit growth,” said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. “We achieved this strong performance as new housing construction showed strong double-digit growth and spending for home repairs and remodeling was uneven during the quarter and somewhat weaker than our expectations.” For each segment in the second quarter 2012, compared to the prior-year quarter: Plumbing & Accessories net sales were up 12 percent, with continuing gains in the U.S. wholesale business on strength from new construction market growth, as well as success in international markets, especially China. Security & Storage net sales were up 2 percent, with security product sales growing 7 percent on broader placement of products at key retailers and increased global sales of padlocks and safety products. Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems net sales were up 7 percent, with strength in new construction contributing to growth in both the window and door product lines. Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry net sales were up approximately 1 percent, with operating profit up 22 percent to $18 million. “Our Plumbing and Security & Storage segments continue to see success from their market expansion activities and product innovation, while our Windows & Door segment saw strength from new business wins and improvement in the new construction market. Our Cabinets segment performed well in the face of continuing consumer hesitancy for big-ticket purchases, with our multi-channel strength enabling us to follow a disciplined strategy to drive sales in more profitable segments of the market,” Klein said. “We are very pleased with our performance this quarter. Our strategies and tight execution are producing profitable revenue growth, and we are in position to drive the business opportunities we believe will result in continued growth as the market continues to firm. We believe our solid capital structure, strong brands, exciting product innovation and operational excellence position us for continued success,” Klein said. “We improved upon our sound balance sheet,” said Lee Wyatt, senior vice president and chief financial officer. “As of June 30, 2012, cash was approximately $147 million, and debt was $361 million with nothing outstanding on our $650 million revolver facility. Our net debt-to-EBITDA ratio is down to 0.7 times.” Company Reaffirms Sales and EPS Outlook for 2012 For the full year, the Company's assumption for the growth rate of the market for its U.S. home products remains mid-single digits, as new construction showed better-than-expected strength in the second quarter while repair & remodel business was softer than expected. The Company is reaffirming the range of its net sales outlook for 2012, as it continues to expect its full-year 2012 net sales to increase at a high-single-digit rate. “We continue to expect full-year sales to grow high single digits, but based on continuing unevenness in repair & remodel and due to our disciplined approach to pursuing sales growth that is also profitable, we believe our results will be in the lower end of that range,” Klein said. In addition, the Company is reaffirming its full-year 2012 outlook for diluted EPS before charges/gains of $0.77 - $0.87. This targeted range compares to 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 remain confident in our ability to outperform the market no matter the pace of the recovery, due to our industry leadership positions and our strategy to selectively pursue and secure profitable business,” Klein said. The Company increased its free cash flow outlook for 2012 to be in the range of $225 million to $250 million. “Our balance sheet and free cash flow are strengthening as expected. We look forward to using this strength to drive incremental returns for shareholders,” Wyatt said. Board of Directors Authorizes Share Repurchase Program Separately, on Wednesday, July 25, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $150 million of shares of the Company's common stock over the next three years on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions in accordance with applicable securities laws. The purchases, if made, will occur from time to time depending on market conditions. This authorization does not obligate the Company to repurchase any dollar amount or number of shares of common stock. The authorization is in effect until July 25, 2015 and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. “In light of our accumulation of cash, the Board has authorized this limited share repurchase program. It is part of our long term strategy to use our cash to create shareholder value through a combination of organic growth investments, making strategic acquisitions, repurchasing shares and potentially initiating a dividend,” Klein said.
