Colgate Announces 2nd Quarter 2019 Results

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 26, 2019-- Colgate-Palmolive Company (NYSE:CL) today reported worldwide Net sales of $3,866 million in second quarter 2019, a decrease of 0.5% versus second quarter 2018. Global unit volume increased 1.0%, pricing increased 3.0% and foreign exchange was negative 4.5%. Organic sales (Net sales excluding the impact of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestments) increased 4.0%.

Net income and Diluted earnings per share in second quarter 2019 were $586 million and $0.68, respectively. Net income in second quarter 2019 included $31 million ($0.04 per diluted share) of aftertax charges resulting from the Company’s Global Growth and Efficiency Program.

Net income and Diluted earnings per share in second quarter 2018 were $637 million and $0.73, respectively. Net income in second quarter 2018 included $51 million ($0.06 per diluted share) of aftertax charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program and a $15 million ($0.02 per diluted share) benefit from a foreign tax matter.

Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both periods and the benefit from a foreign tax matter in 2018, Net income in second quarter 2019 was $617 million, a decrease of 8% versus second quarter 2018, and Diluted earnings per share in second quarter 2019 were $0.72, a decrease of 6% versus second quarter 2018.

Gross profit margin was 59.7% in second quarter 2019 versus 59.2% in second quarter 2018. Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both periods, Gross profit margin was 59.6% in second quarter 2019, an increase of 30 basis points versus the year ago quarter as cost savings from the Company’s funding-the-growth initiatives and higher pricing were partially offset by higher raw and packaging material costs, which included foreign exchange transaction costs.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were 35.4% of Net sales in second quarter 2019 versus 33.5% of Net sales in second quarter 2018. Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both periods, Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 200 basis points versus the year ago quarter to 35.2% of Net sales in second quarter 2019 due to higher overhead expenses and increased advertising investment, both as a percentage of Net sales. On an absolute basis, worldwide advertising investment increased 3% to $416 million versus $403 million in the year ago quarter.

Operating profit decreased to $888 million in second quarter 2019 compared to $946 million in second quarter 2018. Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both periods, Operating profit was $928 million in second quarter 2019, a decrease of 8% versus second quarter 2018. Operating profit margin was 23.0% in second quarter 2019 versus 24.3% in second quarter 2018. Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both periods, Operating profit margin was 24.0% in second quarter 2019, a decrease of 180 basis points versus the year ago quarter. This decrease in Operating profit margin was primarily due to an increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by an increase in Gross profit, both as a percentage of Net sales.

Net cash provided by operations year to date was $1,249 million compared to $1,297 million in the comparable 2018 period. Working capital as a percentage of Net sales was negative 2.9% compared to negative 2.1% in the year ago period.

Noel Wallace, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented on the second quarter results, “We have achieved another quarter of sequential improvement in organic sales growth with the strong 4.0% increase driven by both positive volume and higher pricing. In particular, it was terrific to see positive pricing across every operating division.

“Advertising investment increased in absolute dollars and as a percent to sales versus second quarter 2018, with increases as a percent to sales in every division.

“Colgate’s leadership of the global toothpaste market continued during the quarter with our global market share at 41.4% year to date. Our global leadership in manual toothbrushes also continued with Colgate’s global market share in that category at 31.7% year to date.”

Mr. Wallace continued, “As we look ahead, based on current spot rates, we continue to expect 2019 net sales to be flat to up low-single-digits, with organic sales up between 2% and 4%, though we now expect to be toward the higher end of that range as we continue to plan for increased investment behind our brands, higher pricing and strong innovation, particularly behind our core businesses.

“We are also excited about expanding our premium skin care portfolio with the recent announcement of our agreement to acquire the Filorga skin care business, which is not included in our guidance.

“On a GAAP basis, based on current spot rates, we expect gross margin expansion and a low-single-digit decline in earnings per share in 2019.

“Excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program in both 2018 and 2019, the charge related to U.S. tax reform in 2018 and the benefit from a foreign tax matter in 2018, based on current spot rates, we continue to plan for a year of gross margin expansion, increased advertising investment and a mid-single-digit decline in earnings per share.”

At 11:00 a.m. ET today, Colgate will host a conference call to elaborate on second quarter results. To access this call as a webcast, please go to Colgate’s website at http://www.colgatepalmolive.com.

The following are comments about divisional performance for second quarter 2019 versus the year ago period. See attached Geographic Sales Analysis Percentage Changes and Segment Information tables for additional information on divisional net sales and operating profit.

North America (22% of Company Sales)

North America Net sales increased 2.5% in second quarter 2019. Unit volume increased 2.0%, pricing increased 1.0% and foreign exchange was negative 0.5%. Organic sales for North America increased 3.0%.

Operating profit in North America decreased 4% in second quarter 2019 to $254 million, or 200 basis points to 30.0% of Net sales. This decrease in Operating profit as a percentage of Net sales was primarily due to a decrease in Gross profit and an increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses, both as a percentage of Net sales. This decrease in Gross profit was primarily due to higher raw and packaging material costs, partially offset by cost savings from the Company’s funding-the-growth initiatives. This increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher overhead expenses, primarily related to higher logistics costs, and increased advertising investment.

In the U.S., Colgate maintained leadership in the toothpaste category during the quarter with its market share at 34.6% year to date. Successful products include Colgate TotalSF, Colgate Optic White Stain Fighter and Colgate Essentials with Charcoal toothpastes. In manual toothbrushes, Colgate maintained its brand market leadership in the U.S. with its market share in that category at 40.7% year to date, supported by the success of Colgate Extra Clean and Colgate Gum Health manual toothbrushes.

Latin America (24% of Company Sales)

Latin America Net sales decreased 0.5% in second quarter 2019. Unit volume increased 1.5%, pricing increased 5.5% and foreign exchange was negative 7.5%. Volume gains in Mexico and Colombia were partially offset by volume declines in Brazil. Organic sales for Latin America increased 7.0%.

Operating profit in Latin America decreased 4% in second quarter 2019 to $251 million, or 110 basis points to 27.0% of Net sales. This decrease in Operating profit as a percentage of Net sales was primarily due to an increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses partially offset by an increase in Gross profit, both as a percentage of Net sales. This increase in Gross profit was primarily due to cost savings from the Company’s funding-the-growth initiatives and higher pricing, partially offset by higher raw and packaging material costs, which included foreign exchange transaction costs. This increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses was due to higher overhead expenses and increased advertising investment.

Colgate maintained its toothpaste leadership in Latin America during the quarter, with market share gains in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Paraguay and Panama. Products succeeding in the region include the Colgate Total 12 relaunch, Colgate Natural Extracts, elmex and Colgate Periogard toothpastes. Colgate’s leadership in the manual toothbrush category continued throughout the region, supported by the success of Colgate Pro Cuidado, Colgate 360 Advanced and Colgate Ultra Soft Advanced manual toothbrushes.

This increase in Gross Profit was primarily due to cost savings from the Company’s funding-the-growth initiatives, partially offset by higher raw and packaging material costs. This increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses was due to higher overhead expenses and increased advertising investment.

Colgate maintained its toothpaste leadership in Europe during the quarter, with market share gains in the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Greece, the Netherlands and Denmark. Products succeeding in oral care include Colgate Total, Colgate Max White Expert Anti-Stain, Colgate Natural Extracts Charcoal, elmex and meridol Pur toothpastes, Colgate 360° Advanced Whole Mouth Health and Colgate Slim Soft Advanced manual toothbrushes and Colgate Plax mouthwash.

Operating profit in Asia Pacific decreased 14% in second quarter 2019 to $174 million, or 320 basis points to 26.9% of Net sales. This decrease in Operating profit as a percentage of Net sales was primarily due to an increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of Net sales. This increase in Selling, general and administrative expenses was due to higher overhead expenses, reflecting foreign exchange transaction gains in the second quarter of 2018, and increased advertising investment.

Colgate maintained its toothpaste leadership in the Asia Pacific region during the quarter with market share gains in the Philippines, Australia and Pakistan. Products succeeding in oral care include Colgate Naturals, Colgate Vedshakti and elmex toothpastes and Colgate Slim Soft Advanced manual toothbrush.

Products succeeding in other categories include Palmolive Skin Therapy bar soap, Palmolive Luminous Oils shower gel and liquid hand soap, Ajax Charcoal and Lime spray cleaner and Softlan Divine Pleasures fabric conditioner.

Operating profit in Africa/Eurasia increased 12% in second quarter 2019 to $47 million, or 200 basis points to 19.3% of Net sales. This increase in Operating profit as a percentage of Net sales was primarily due to an increase in Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales. This increase in Gross profit was primarily due to cost savings from the Company’s funding-the-growth initiatives and higher pricing, partially offset by higher raw and packaging material costs, which included foreign exchange transaction costs.

Colgate maintained its toothpaste leadership in Africa/Eurasia during the quarter, with market share gains in Turkey, Morocco, Kazakhstan, Jordan and Bahrain.

Market Share Information

Management uses market share information as a key indicator to monitor business health and performance. References to market share in this press release are based on a combination of consumption and market share data provided by third-party vendors, primarily Nielsen, and internal estimates. All market share references represent the percentage of the dollar value of sales of our products, relative to all product sales in the category in the countries in which the Company competes and purchases data (excluding Venezuela from all periods).

Market share data is subject to limitations on the availability of up-to-date information. In particular, market share data is currently not generally available for certain retail channels, such as eCommerce or certain discounters. The Company measures year-to-date market shares from January 1 of the relevant year through the most recent period for which market share data is available, which typically reflects a lag time of one or two months. The Company believes that the third-party vendors it uses to provide data are reliable, but it has not verified the accuracy or completeness of the data or any assumptions underlying the data. In addition, market share information reported by the Company may be different from market share information reported by other companies due to differences in category definitions, the use of data from different countries, internal estimates and other factors.

Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and the related webcast may contain forward-looking statements (as that term is defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 or by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in its rules, regulations and releases) that set forth anticipated results based on management’s current plans and assumptions. Such statements may relate, for example, to sales or volume growth, net selling price increases, organic sales growth, profit or profit margin growth, earnings per share levels, financial goals, the impact of foreign exchange volatility, cost-reduction plans including the Global Growth and Efficiency Program, tax rates, U.S. tax reform, new product introductions or commercial investment levels, acquisitions, including the recently announced agreement to acquire the Filorga skin care business, divestitures, or legal or tax proceedings, among other matters. These statements are made on the basis of the Company’s views and assumptions as of this time and the Company undertakes no obligation to update these statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law or by the rules and regulations of the SEC. Moreover, the Company does not nor does any other person assume responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of these statements. The Company cautions investors that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and that actual events or results may differ materially from those statements. For more information about factors that could impact the Company’s business and cause actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements, investors should refer to the Company’s filings with the SEC (including, but not limited to, the information set forth under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Statements” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q). Copies of these filings may be obtained upon request from the Company’s Investor Relations Department or on the Company’s website at http://www.colgatepalmolive.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following provides information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures used in this earnings release and/or the related webcast:

This release discusses Net sales growth (GAAP) and organic sales growth, which is Net sales growth excluding the impact of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestments (non-GAAP). Management believes the organic sales growth measure provides investors and analysts with useful supplemental information regarding the Company’s underlying sales trends by presenting sales growth excluding the external factor of foreign exchange as well as the impact from acquisitions and divestments. See “Geographic Sales Analysis Percentage Changes” for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 vs. 2018 included with this release for a comparison of organic sales growth to Net sales growth in accordance with GAAP.

To supplement Colgate’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company has disclosed non-GAAP measures of operating results that exclude certain items. Worldwide Gross profit, Gross profit margin, Selling, general and administrative expenses, Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of Net sales, Other (income) expense, net, Operating profit, Operating profit margin, Non-service related postretirement costs, Effective income tax rate, Net income attributable to Colgate-Palmolive Company and Diluted earnings per common share are discussed both as reported (on a GAAP basis) and excluding charges resulting from the Global Growth and Efficiency Program and, as applicable, the benefit from a foreign tax matter and the charge related to U.S. tax reform (non-GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that, either by their nature or amount, management would not expect to occur as part of the Company’s normal business on a regular basis, such as restructuring charges, charges for certain litigation and tax matters, gains and losses from certain divestitures and certain unusual, non-recurring items. Investors and analysts use these financial measures in assessing the Company’s business performance, and management believes that presenting these financial measures on a non-GAAP basis provides them with useful supplemental information to enhance their understanding of the Company’s underlying business performance and trends. These non-GAAP financial measures also enhance the ability to compare period-to-period financial results. See “Non-GAAP Reconciliations” for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 included with this release for a reconciliation of these financial measures to the related GAAP measures.

The Company uses these financial measures internally in its budgeting process, to evaluate segment and overall operating performance and as factors in determining compensation. While the Company believes that these financial measures are useful in evaluating the Company’s underlying business performance and trends, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similar measures presented by other companies.

The Company defines free cash flow before dividends as Net cash provided by operations less Capital expenditures. As management uses this measure to evaluate the Company’s ability to satisfy current and future obligations, repurchase stock, pay dividends and fund future business opportunities, the Company believes that it provides useful information to investors. Free cash flow before dividends is not a measure of cash available for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure. Free cash flow before dividends is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. See “Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows” for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 for a comparison of free cash flow before dividends to Net cash provided by operations as reported in accordance with GAAP.

The impact of non-GAAP adjustments may not necessarily equal the difference between “GAAP” and “non-GAAP” as a result of rounding.
 
Notes:
(1) The income tax effect on non-GAAP items is calculated based upon the tax laws and statutory income tax rates applicable in the tax jurisdiction(s) of the underlying non-GAAP adjustment.
 
(2) The impact of non-GAAP items on the Company’s effective tax rate represents the difference in the effective tax rate calculated with and without the non-GAAP adjustment on Income before income taxes and Provision for income taxes.
