Avon Hosts 2016 Investor Day and Reaffirms Full-Year 2015 Outlook

Jan 21, 2016

NEW YORK, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE: AVP) will host its 2016 Investor Day today, Thursday, January 21, 2016, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST at the Company's global Research and Development center in Suffern, NY.

In conjunction with Avon's Investor Day, the Company is reaffirming the outlook provided on its third-quarter 2015 earnings call.

"Our full-year performance is expected to be in-line with our most recent outlook," said Jim Scully, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. "We will provide full details of our fourth-quarter and full-year 2015 performance at our earnings call on February 11th, which will include the reporting of our North American business as discontinued operations caused by its anticipated separation from Avon."

In 2015, Avon made progress against its full-year objectives in-line with its previously stated outlook. Including the results of North America, Avon's full-year 2015 constant-dollar1 revenue is expected to be flat as compared with the prior year.

As announced on December 17, 2015, the Company intends to separate its North American business. As a result, North America will be reported as discontinued operations for all periods. Excluding the results of North America, the Company expects full-year 2015 results to include:

  • Total revenue of approximately $6 billion;
  • Constant dollar revenue growth of 2% (decline of 19% in reported dollars), which was negatively impacted by approximately 1 point from the Liz Earle divestiture; and
  • Growth in Active Representatives of 1%.

1 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. 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. Foreign currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant-currency growth rates. These Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
