Oct 30, 2014

NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE:AVP) today reported third-quarter 2014 results. "We began the year with the expectation that the second half of 2014 would show improvement relative to the first half and Avon's third-quarter results are consistent with modest improvement on both top and bottom line," said Sheri McCoy, Chief Executive Officer of Avon Products, Inc. "We saw good results from our EMEA region, while sluggish performance in Brazil contributed to softer results in Latin America. Despite the strong headwinds in a number of markets, we continue to make progress on Avon's turnaround journey."

Third-Quarter 2014 (compared with third-quarter 2013)

For the third quarter of 2014, total revenue of $2.1 billion decreased 8%, but increased 1% in constant dollars. Total units decreased 4% and price/mix was up 5% during the quarter. Active Representatives² were down 4%, while average order² increased 5%.

Beauty sales declined 9%, but increased 1% in constant dollars. Fashion & Home sales declined 11%, or 4% in constant dollars.

Third-quarter 2014 gross margin was 61.9% and Adjusted gross margin was 62.0%. Adjusted gross margin was 110 basis points lower than the prior-year quarter, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange driven by Europe, Middle East & Africa and Latin America, and higher supply chain costs, primarily from high-inflation countries. This was partially offset by the favorable net impact of mix and pricing, primarily due to inflationary pricing in Latin America.

Operating profit was $188 million and operating margin was 8.8% in the quarter. Adjusted operating profit was $198 million and Adjusted operating margin was 9.3%, up 390 basis points from the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted operating margin was favorably impacted by the net benefit of Value Added Tax ("VAT") credits in Brazil and lower expenses associated with employee incentive compensation plans. The increase in Adjusted operating margin was also due to lower expenses related to the Service Model Transformation ("SMT") project, as well as benefits from other cost savings initiatives.

Third-quarter 2014's effective tax rate from continuing operations was 36.3%, compared with 120.1% in the third quarter of 2013. The tax rate in the third quarter of 2013 was adversely impacted by non-cash charges associated with our China business, including the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. The Adjusted effective tax rate was 35.6% for the third quarter of 2014, compared with 32.5% for the third quarter of 2013.

Third-quarter 2014's net income from continuing operations was $92 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $6.4 million, or a loss of $0.01 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013. Third-quarter 2014's Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $99 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared with Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $60 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $126 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, compared with net cash provided of $96 million for the same period in 2013. Operating cash flow in 2013 was unfavorably impacted by payments for the make-whole premiums of approximately $90 million in connection with the prepayment of debt in 2013 that did not recur in 2014. In addition, operating cash flow in 2014 was favorably impacted by the timing of accounts payable, primarily for inventory purchases, and lower tax payments. These favorable impacts were partially offset by lower cash-related earnings and higher payments for 2013 employee incentive compensation. The overall net cash used during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $282 million, compared with overall net cash used of $401 million for the same period in 2013.

Avon's net debt (total debt less cash) at September 30, 2014 was $1.8 billion, up $191 million from the year-end 2013 level, and $172 million lower than at September 30, 2013.

Adjustments to Third-Quarter 2014 GAAP Results to Arrive at Adjusted Results

During the third quarter of 2014, the following items had an aggregate impact of $0.02 per diluted share on the financial results:

  • The Company recorded costs to implement restructuring within operating profit of approximately $3 million pre-tax, primarily related to the Company's $400 million Cost Savings Initiative.
  • The Company recorded a settlement charge of approximately $5 million pre-tax, as a result of payments from the Company's U.S. pension plan.
  • During the first quarter of 2014, the Company began utilizing the SICAD II rate to remeasure its Venezuelan operations. As a result of the use of the historical U.S. dollar-cost basis of non-monetary assets, such as inventory, third-quarter 2014 operating profit was negatively impacted by approximately $2 million.

**In 2014, the Company's Constant $ revenue growth and Constant $ operating profit growth will not be impacted by the use of the SICAD II exchange rate for its Venezuela operations as the Company applies an exchange rate of 6.30 to current and prior periods for its Venezuela operations in order to determine Constant $ growth. If the Company were to use an exchange rate of 50 for its Venezuela operations for the three months ended September 30, 2014, the region's Constant $ revenue would have been relatively unchanged compared with the prior-year period. As the Company updates its Constant $ rates on an annual basis, the Company will utilize the SICAD II exchange rate in the Company's Constant $ financial performance, beginning with its 2015 results.

  • Third-quarter constant-dollar revenue growth was favorably impacted by approximately 2 points, due to the net benefit of VAT credits in Brazil in third-quarter 2014, which were greater than the benefit recognized in 2013. In addition, revenue was impacted by higher average order, partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • Brazil revenue was up 1%, or relatively unchanged in constant dollars, favorably impacted by approximately 4 points due to the incremental net benefit of VAT credits. Brazil was impacted by a challenging macroeconomic environment and high levels of competitive activity. Constant-dollar Beauty sales decreased 4%, driven by a decline in color. Constant-dollar Fashion & Home sales decreased 3%.
  • Mexico revenue declined 7%, or 6% on a constant-dollar basis, primarily due to a decrease in Active Representatives, partially offset by higher average order.
  • Venezuela revenue was down 84%, or up 29% in constant dollars, primarily due to higher average order, which benefited from the inflationary impact on pricing that was partially offset by a decrease in units sold. In addition, Active Representatives declined.
  • Adjusted operating margin was favorably impacted by the net benefit of VAT credits in Brazil, lower Representative and sales leader investment and lower bad debt expense. These were partially offset by lower gross margin, primarily due to higher supply chain costs and the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange.

  • Third-quarter constant-dollar revenue increased, due to higher average order and an increase in Active Representatives. Growth in the region was largely driven by Russia. Constant-dollar revenue was negatively impacted by approximately 1 point as a result of the closure of the France business.
  • In Russia, revenue was up 4%, or 14% in constant dollars, primarily due to an increase in Active Representatives and higher average order, reflecting actions to drive unit sales in Beauty and promotional activity to drive Fashion & Home sales of excess inventory.
  • U.K. revenue was up 12%, or 4% in constant dollars, primarily due to higher average order, partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • Turkey revenue was down 9%, or 1% in constant dollars, primarily due to a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • South Africa revenue was up 6%, or 13% in constant dollars, primarily due to an increase in Active Representatives.
  • The decrease in Adjusted operating margin was primarily due to the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange, partially offset by lower expenses associated with employee incentive compensation plans, and the favorable impact of the revenue increase with respect to fixed expenses.

  • Third-quarter constant-dollar revenue increased, due to higher average order which was driven by an increase in units sold, partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • Revenue in the Philippines was up 5% on both a reported and constant-dollar basis, as higher average order was partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • Revenue in China increased on both a reported and constant-dollar basis, primarily due to an increase in units sold. The increase in units sold was primarily due to the comparison with a year ago when the Company took actions to reduce inventory levels held by the beauty boutiques.
  • Adjusted operating margin increased, primarily due to cost reduction actions. These were partially offset by lower gross margin, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of pricing and mix, higher supply chain costs and foreign exchange.

Footnotes

1 "Adjusted" items refer to financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP that have been adjusted to exclude certain costs as described below, under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."  We also refer to Adjusted financial measures as Constant $ items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures as described below under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

² In the first quarter of 2014, we revised the definition of our "Change in Active Representatives" performance metric. The change from the previous definition is that we no longer divide the unique orders by the number of billing days. This update aligns our external performance metrics with how we internally monitor the performance of our business. The updated definition is as follows:

This metric is a measure of Representative activity based on the number of unique Representatives submitting at least one order in a sales campaign, totaled for all campaigns in the related period. To determine the change in Active Representatives, this calculation is compared to the same calculation in the corresponding period of the prior year. Orders in China are excluded from this metric as our business in China is predominantly retail. Liz Earle is also excluded from this calculation as they do not distribute through the direct-selling channel.

In addition, we have added a definition for our "Change in Average Order" performance metric, as follows:

This metric is a measure of Representative productivity. The calculation is the difference of the year-over-year change in revenue on a Constant $ basis and the change in Active Representatives. Change in Average Order may be impacted by a combination of factors such as inflation, units, product mix, and/or pricing.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), we disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: revenue, operating profit, Adjusted operating profit, operating margin and Adjusted operating margin. We also refer to these adjusted financial measures as Constant $ items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, we calculate current-year results and prior-year results at a constant exchange rate. Currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant-currency growth rates.

We also present gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, total and net global expenses, operating profit, operating margin, income from continuing operations, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations and effective tax rate on a Non-GAAP basis. The discussion of our segments presents operating profit and operating margin on a Non-GAAP basis. We refer to these Non-GAAP financial measures as "Adjusted." We have provided a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the Non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses the Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its operating performance and believes that it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of, on a period-to-period basis, the impacts of 1) costs to implement ("CTI") restructuring initiatives, 2) costs and charges related to the devaluations of Venezuelan currency in March 2014 and February 2013, combined with being designated as a highly inflationary economy ("Venezuelan special items"), 3) the $12 million accrual recorded in the second quarter of 2013 for the offer of settlement relating to the FCPA investigations and the additional $46 million accrual recorded in the first quarter of 2014 for the potential settlements related to the FCPA investigations ("FCPA accrual"), 4) the settlement charges associated with the U.S. pension plan ("Pension settlement charge"), 5) the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to the China business ("Asset impairment and other charges"), and 6) costs and charges related to the extinguishment of debt ("Loss on extinguishment of debt"). The Company believes investors find the Non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the Company's financial results in any particular period.

The Venezuelan special items include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in 2014 and 2013, caused by the devaluations of Venezuelan currency on monetary assets and liabilities, such as cash, receivables and payables; deferred tax assets and liabilities; and non-monetary assets, such as inventories. For non-monetary assets, the Venezuelan special items include the earnings impact caused by the difference between the historical cost of the assets at the previous exchange rate and the revised exchange rate. In 2014, the Venezuelan special items also include an adjustment of $116 million to reflect certain non-monetary assets at their net realizable value. In 2013, the devaluation was as a result of the change in the official exchange rate, which moved from 4.30 to 6.30, and in 2014, the devaluation was caused as a result of moving from the official exchange rate of 6.30 to the SICAD II exchange rate of approximately 50.

The Pension settlement charge includes the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in the second and third quarters of 2014 associated with the payments made to former employees who are vested and participate in the U.S. pension plan. Such payments fully settle our pension plan obligation to those participants who elected to receive such payment.

The Asset impairment and other charges include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income caused by the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to the China business in the third quarter of 2013.

The Loss on extinguishment of debt includes the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in the first quarter of 2013, caused by the make-whole premium and the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with the prepayment of the Company's private notes, as well as the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with the early repayment of $380 million of the outstanding principal amount of the Company's term loan agreement. The Loss on extinguishment of debt also includes the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in the second quarter of 2013, caused by the make-whole premium and the write-off of debt issuance costs and discounts, partially offset by a deferred gain associated with the January 2013 interest-rate swap agreement termination, associated with the prepayment of the Company's 2014 notes.
