·11-min read

Highlights from operations:

  • Strong end market, share gains and exceptional operational performance drove better than anticipated results across the Company

  • Continued focus on employee safety and serving customers enabled operational excellence that drove results

  • 3Q 2020 sales increased 13 percent year-over-year to $1.7 billion

  • 3Q 2020 EPS of $1.17, an increase of 56 percent; EPS before charges / gains increased 25 percent to $1.19

Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS, the "Company", or "Fortune Brands"), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced third quarter 2020 results.

"I continue to be amazed by our teams," said Nicholas Fink, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands. "We delivered exceptional performance in an accelerating housing market as demographic forces and consumers focused on home investment drove both renovation and remodeling and new construction activity. We are serving our customers’ increasing needs through a strict focus on safety and operational excellence. Also reflected in our financial results were increased investments in our leading brands, innovation and supply chain capability and capacity that will enable us to continue to capture opportunities and accelerate share gains in a fundamentally robust housing market over the next few years."

Third Quarter 2020

For the third quarter of 2020, sales were $1.7 billion, an increase of 13 percent over the third quarter of 2019. Earnings per share were $1.17, compared to $0.75 in the prior-year quarter. EPS before charges / gains were $1.19, compared to $0.95 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $240.2 million, compared to $168.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges / gains was $244.2 million, compared to $203.2 million the same quarter last year, an increase of 20 percent.

"We are ahead of our plan to permanently advance the profitability of the company, and our financial results are just beginning to reflect this," continued Fink. "We are accelerating our multi-year margin improvement journey in a fundamentally strong housing market, which should create exceptional value for our long-term stakeholders."

For each segment in the third quarter of 2020, compared to the prior-year quarter:

  • Plumbing sales increased 15 percent with double-digit sales growth in U.S. Retail and China. Operating margin before charges / gains was 20.8 percent even with increased brand investment and one-time costs and remains on track to deliver expected margins of approximately 22 percent for the full year.

  • Doors & Security sales increased 14 percent, with doors and decking showing double-digit growth and security products returning to mid-single digit growth. Operating margin before charges / gains was 16.4 percent, an increase of 190 basis points versus the third quarter of 2019.

  • Cabinet sales increased 11 percent. Strong demand for value-priced cabinets continues to drive growth in this segment. Operating margin before charges / gains was 12.2 percent, an increase of 220 basis points over the third quarter of 2019.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

At the end of the quarter net debt was $1.6 billion and net debt to EBITDA was 1.7x. The Company had $465 million in cash and $1.35 billion of availability under its revolving credit agreements. The total outstanding on both the Company’s original $1.25 billion and supplemental $400 million revolving credit facilities was $300 million at the end of the third quarter.

"We are leveraging this strong market to increase market share and profitability as we position for 2021 and beyond," said Patrick Hallinan, chief financial officer, Fortune Brands. "The permanent efficiency improvements we have made over the past six months will serve as a foundation for future margin improvement and enable us to capture the opportunities presented by what we expect to be a prolonged period of housing market strength. With this momentum, we have the ability to make investments and deploy capital to accelerate growth and stakeholder value creation."

2020 Outlook

While clear COVID-19 and macroeconomic risks remain, the Company is reinitiating formal 2020 financial guidance. For the full year, the Company expects net sales growth between 4 percent and 5 percent and earnings per share of $4.03 to $4.11, with an operating margin of approximately 14 percent. The Company expects to generate free cash flow of approximately $590 to $620 million for the full year 2020, which includes accelerated investments in capacity to support our customers.

"We have clearly entered a new phase of demographics-driven housing growth," said Fink. "I am incredibly excited about how our teams are poised to drive growth, capture share, grow margins and deploy capital to create even more stakeholder value over the next few years."

** 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 disposition 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.

RECONCILIATION OF FULL YEAR 2020 EARNINGS GUIDANCE TO GAAP

The Company is targeting diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $4.03 to $4.11 per share. For the full year, on a GAAP basis, the Company is targeting diluted EPS to be in the range of $3.85 to $3.93 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 2020.

(1) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs.

(2) "Other charges" represent charges or gains directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such costs may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines, accelerated depreciation expense, impairments related to previously closed facilities and losses on the sale of closed facilities. In total, we recognized a charge of $2.4 million and $3.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, and $0.2 million and $10.5 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

In our Doors & Security segment, other charges also includes an acquisition-related inventory step-up expense (Fiberon) classified in cost of products sold of $1.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
