Avon Reports Third-Quarter 2011 Results

Third-Quarter Revenue Up 6% Year over Year (Up 1% in Constant Dollars)

Active Representatives Flat and Units Down 5%

Beauty Sales Up 8% (Up 3% in Constant Dollars)

Third-Quarter EPS from Continuing Ops of $0.38, Flat versus Prior Year, Adjusted(1) EPS from Continuing Ops of $0.38 versus $0.41 in the Prior Year

Oct 27, 2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE:AVP) today reported third-quarter 2011 total revenue of $2.8 billion, 6% higher than that of third-quarter 2010. Constant-dollar sales rose 1% in the third quarter as foreign exchange contributed 5% to growth. Total units declined 5%, while price/mix rose 6% during the quarter. Active Representatives were flat in the quarter.

Income from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2011 was $165 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with $167 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted income from continuing operations was $168 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared with $178 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the year-ago third quarter.

"The results of the quarter reflect a challenging ERP implementation in Brazil which caused greater disruptions than we anticipated. This significantly impacted our top and bottom line results. In addition, consumer uncertainty amidst a volatile macroeconomic environment across several of our markets further pressured revenue growth. Given the current operating environment, the company no longer expects to achieve the stated targets of mid-single digit revenue growth and 50 to 70 basis points of operating margin improvement in 2011. In light of the changing landscape, we are assessing our long-range business plan and are targeting an operational and financial update at an investor meeting in the first quarter of 2012," said Andrea Jung, Avon's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Avon's Beauty sales increased 8% year over year, with gains in all categories; fragrance, color, personal care, and skincare grew 12%, 9%, 6%, and 2%, respectively. Constant-dollar growth of 3% in Beauty was driven by gains of 9% in fragrance, 4% in color, and 2% in personal care. Skincare was down 3% in constant dollars in the quarter.

Third-quarter 2011 gross margin of 63.9% was 40 basis points lower than the prior-year quarter. On an adjusted basis, it declined by 60 basis points as the negative impact of rising product costs was partially offset by pricing benefits and favorable foreign currency.

Selling, general and administrative expense in the quarter declined as a percent of revenue by 60 basis points versus third-quarter 2010, and declined 50 basis points on an adjusted basis. The company continues to rebalance spending between Representative Value Proposition ("RVP") and advertising. In addition, lower expense associated with employee incentive compensation plans was a benefit in the quarter.

As planned, lower advertising was largely offset by a higher investment in RVP during the third quarter of 2011. Within this rebalancing, advertising was $76 million for the quarter, down 34% or $39 million from a year ago. Avon invested an incremental $34 million in RVP in the third quarter of 2011 in Sales Leadership and higher incentives.  

Third-quarter 2011 costs associated with the company's 2005 and 2009 restructuring programs were $5 million pre-tax, or $0.01 per share after-tax, compared with $7 million pre-tax, or $0.01 per share after-tax, in the prior-year period.

Third-quarter 2011 operating profit of $279 million was up 7% compared with the year-ago quarter, and operating margin was 10.1%, up 20 basis points year over year. Adjusted operating profit was up 4%, and adjusted operating margin was 10.3%, down 20 basis points from a year ago due to a sharp decline in Brazil.

Third-quarter 2011's effective tax rate was 31.5%, compared with 29.2% in the year-ago quarter. Excluding the impact of Venezuelan special items and restructuring costs, the third-quarter 2010 tax rate was 28.8%. The third-quarter 2010 tax rate included greater benefits from audit settlements.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $234 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared with $312 million in the same period of 2010. Higher net income was more than offset by lower accounts payable, higher pension contributions, and payout of a long-term incentive compensation plan. At quarter end, Avon's net debt (total debt less cash) was $2.3 billion, up $306 million from the year-end level.

Third-Quarter Regional Results

Latin America's third-quarter 2011 revenue was up 11% year over year, or up 6% in constant dollars, as the region's results were pressured by disruptions in Brazil associated with the Enterprise Resource Planning ("ERP") implementation. Brazil was up 5%, or down 3% in constant dollars. Strong growth continued in other large markets within Latin America. Mexico was up 17%, or 12% in constant dollars, driven by balanced growth in Active Representatives and average order. Venezuela was up 22% on both a reported and constant-dollar basis. The region's Active Representatives grew 3% and units sold were down 4%. Third-quarter operating profit was down 10%. Operating margin was 12.6%, or down 280 basis points from the third quarter of 2010. On an adjusted basis, Latin America's third-quarter operating profit was down 15% and the operating margin was 12.4%, down 380 basis points from a year ago. The decline in operating margin was due to a sharp decline in Brazil, driven by business disruptions and resulting investments in that market.

Third-quarter revenue in North America was down 7% year over year, or down 8% in constant dollars. As we exited the quarter, the region started to see positive average order growth from recent product portfolio enhancements of giftables and smart value offerings. Silpada Designs, Inc. ("Silpada") favorably impacted revenue by 3 points due to the inclusion of one additional month in the quarter versus last year. Active Representatives were down 9% and units sold declined 8% compared with a year ago. North America's third-quarter operating profit was down 85%. Operating margin was 0.9%, down 480 basis points versus last year's quarter. Adjusted operating profit was down 72%, with an adjusted operating margin of 1.9%, down 450 basis points, reflecting fixed overhead costs with lower revenues as well as lower gross margin driven by higher commodity costs. Silpada had an unfavorable impact of 60 basis points to adjusted operating margin in the quarter for the additional month due to the timing of the national sales conference.

In Central & Eastern Europe, third-quarter revenue was up 7% year over year, or flat in constant dollars. Benefits from improving trends in Active Representative growth were offset by weaker average order partly due to the increasingly challenging macroeconomic backdrop in the region. Russia was up 4% on a reported basis and down 2% in constant dollars. The region's Active Representatives were up 1% and units sold were down 4% in the quarter. Operating profit was up 11% versus the 2010 quarter. The region's operating margin was 16.7%, up 60 basis points versus the prior-year quarter. Third-quarter 2011 adjusted operating profit was up 13%. Adjusted operating margin was 17.2%, up 100 basis points, helped by lower advertising which was partially offset by higher commodity costs.

Western Europe, Middle East & Africa's third-quarter revenue increased 9% versus the prior-year quarter, or up 6% in constant dollars, with a significant benefit from a Value Added Tax ("VAT") settlement in the U.K. The region's results were pressured by weak macroeconomic conditions and lower average order. U.K. revenue was up 9%, or up 5% in constant dollars, solely due to the VAT settlement which added 14 points to growth. Turkey declined 6%, or up 7% in constant dollars. South Africa rose 29%, or 23% in constant dollars. The region's Active Representatives grew 3% year over year and units sold declined 1%. Operating profit was up 51% versus the prior-year quarter. Operating margin was 13.9%, up 380 basis points from the prior-year quarter. Third-quarter 2011 adjusted operating profit was up 55% with an adjusted operating margin of 14.2%, up 420 basis points, due to the favorable impact of the revenue associated with the VAT settlement which was only partially offset by higher commodity costs.

Asia Pacific's third-quarter revenue was up 1% year over year, or down 7% in constant dollars. Revenue in the Philippines was up 2%, or down 4% in constant dollars. China declined 6%, or 11% in constant dollars. The region's Active Representatives declined 6% and units sold decreased by 9%. Operating profit was up 17% versus the 2010 quarter. The region's operating margin was 8.9%, up 120 basis points. China reported a modest operating profit compared with a loss for the same period last year. The region's adjusted operating profit was up 22% versus the 2010 quarter with an adjusted operating margin of 8.9%, up 160 basis points from a year ago, due to lower advertising costs and favorable foreign exchange.

Footnote

(1) "Adjusted" items refer to financial results presented in accordance with US GAAP that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of Venezuelan special items and restructuring costs, as described below, under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

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. We refer to these adjusted growth rates as Constant $ growth, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We believe this measure provides 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 present gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, operating profit, operating margin, income from continuing operations, 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 have provided a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measure and the financial measure calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.  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.  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 and 2) costs and charges related to Venezuela being designated as a highly inflationary economy and the subsequent devaluation of its currency ("Venezuelan special items").  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 Statement of Income caused by the devaluation of the Venezuelan currency on monetary assets and liabilities, such as cash, receivables and payables; deferred tax assets and liabilities; and nonmonetary assets, such as inventory and prepaid expenses.  For nonmonetary assets, the Venezuelan special items include the earnings impact caused by the difference between the historical cost of the assets at the previous official exchange rate of 2.15 and the revised official exchange rate of 4.30.
