Commenting on the Company's performance, Michele Scannavini, CEO of Coty Inc., said,
"Coty returned to revenues growth in the 3rd quarter. The majority of our power brands showed positive development thanks to a competitive innovation program, and growth in the emerging markets accelerated to 15%. Both prove our strategic focus on these brands and geographies is starting to bear fruit. While market conditions remain challenging in some product segments in parts of the world, we are sticking to our current strategy and targeting for continued growth for the remainder of the calendar year while working to significantly improve the cost profile of the business."

Basis of Presentation and Exceptional Items

The term "like-for-like" describes the performance of the business on a comparable basis, excluding material acquisitions, all divestitures, discontinued operations and foreign currency exchange translations to the extent applicable.  "Like-for-like" does not exclude net revenues from joint venture consolidations and conversion from third-party to direct distribution.   The term "adjusted" excludes the impact of non-recurring items, private company share-based compensation expense, impairment charges and restructuring costs to the extent applicable. Refer to "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a definition of free cash flow.

Net revenues are reported by segment and geographic region and are discussed below on a like-for-like basis.  Operating income is reported by segment.  All changes in margin percentage are described in basis points rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Net revenues and adjusted operating income are presented on an actual and a constant currency basis.  Operating income, net income and earnings per diluted share (EPS (diluted)) are presented on a reported (GAAP) basis and an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis.  Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A), effective tax rate, cash tax rate, gross margin and operating income margin are presented on an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis.  Net revenues on a constant currency basis and like-for-like, adjusted operating income on a constant currency basis, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted cash tax rate, adjusted net income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted EPS (diluted), adjusted SG&A and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures.  A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results can be found in the tables and footnotes at the end of this release.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Summary Operating Review

Net revenues of $1,008.7 million increased 2% like-for-like and increased 1% as reported from the prior-year period. By segment, Fragrances grew 6%, supported by growth in 4 out of Coty's 5 Fragrances power brands: Calvin Klein, Davidoff, Marc Jacobs, and Playboy. Skin & Body Care increased 8%, as philosophy continued its growth momentum, adidas benefitted from its traction in the emerging markets, and Lancaster saw strong growth particularly in the sun category. Color Cosmetics' 6% decline reflected continued pressure on the nail category in the U.S., partially offset by strong Rimmel performance. By geographic region, the growth was driven by EMEA and Asia Pacific, partially offset by continued challenges in the overall U.S. market. EMEA net revenues increased 8% in the quarter, supported by strong results in the U.K., Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, South Africa, and the Middle East. Asia Pacific revenues grew 19%, with strong momentum in Australia and Southeast Asia. Emerging markets had very strong 15% growth, aided by the company's new joint ventures and subsidiaries in Southeast Asia, South Africa, and the Middle East. Net revenue growth was helped by favorable comparison due to cancelled and unshipped orders in the prestige distribution channel in the prior-year period, following the transition to a new third-party logistics provider in Europe.

Adjusted gross margin decreased to 61.6% compared to 61.7% in the prior-year period. This marginal decline primarily reflected the negative impact of higher customer discounts and allowances and the negative impact from foreign currency exchange transactions, almost fully compensated by continuous supply chain savings.  

Adjusted SG&A expense as a percentage of net revenues increased to 51.4% from 49.0% in the prior-year period. This reflected higher advertising and consumer promotion spending in support of the brands, increased variable compensation expense, and accelerated investments to build capabilities in emerging markets, partially offset by discretionary cost reductions in the developed markets.   

Operating income decreased to an operating loss of $(272.0) million from an operating income of $30.1 million in the prior-year period. The decline in operating income was driven by a $316.9 million non-cash asset impairment charge.    

Coty determined that the actions taken by the Company to revamp the TJoy business in the China mass channel have not improved the actual and projected cash flows in the business. As such, the Company has recorded a non-cash asset impairment charge of $316.9 million in the Skin & Body Care segment. On a prospective basis, this action will result in approximately $8.3 million of annual amortization savings, which should benefit the ongoing profitability of the Skin & Body Care segment. The Company is actively evaluating a number of options for its mass channel business in China, with the objective of further improving profitability in the region and in the Skin & Body Care segment.

Adjusted operating income decreased 22% to $81.4 million at actual rates, from $103.7 million in the prior-year period. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating income margin decreased 230 basis points to 8.1% from 10.4%, primarily driven by increased adjusted SG&A expense in part reflecting higher investment behind the brands.

Adjusted effective tax rate was (40.9%) compared to 6.9% in the prior-year period.  The tax benefit in the quarter was a recognition of certain tax benefits upon settlement of certain foreign audits totaling $38.1 million compared to a one-time tax benefit of $23.8 million in the prior-year period related to the extension of 954(c)(6), resulting in a $14.3 million increase in one-time tax benefits. The adjusted cash tax rate for the nine months ending March 31, 2014 was 14.8%.

Net income decreased to a net income loss of $(253.3) million from net income of $20.4 million in the prior-year period. This decrease primarily reflected lower operating income as a result of the asset impairment, partially offset by lower interest expense and the income tax benefit during the quarter.

Adjusted net income increased to $86.7 million from $68.4 million in the prior-year period. This increase primarily reflected higher net revenues in the period and the income tax benefit, partially offset by lower adjusted operating income margin.  As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted net income margin increased 170 basis points to 8.6% from 6.9%.

Cash Flows

  • Net cash used by operating activities totaled $4.2 million compared to cash provided of $70.2 million in the prior-year period, excluding cash used for private company stock option exercises. The modest operating cash use in the quarter was primarily a result of working capital changes in accounts receivable, inventory, and the funding of emerging markets.
  • Net debt decreased by $111.9 million to $1,597.9 million from $1,709.8 million at June 30, 2013.
  • Free cash flow in the quarter was ($82.8) million, resulting in year-to-date free cash flow of $247.9 million, $27.2 million above the prior-year period, fueled by strong improvement in net working capital.

Fragrances

  • Revenue growth was generated by power brands Calvin Klein, Davidoff, Marc Jacobs, and Playboy, as well as some of the Company's regional brands.
  • Adjusted operating income for Fragrances decreased 2% to $54.3 million from $55.5 million in the prior-year period, resulting in 10.7% adjusted operating income margin, a decline of 70 basis points versus the prior year.

Color Cosmetics

  • Net revenues declined primarily due to pressure on Sally Hansen as a result of continued weakness in the U.S. nail category, unfavorable comparisons versus the sizeable sell-in of the successful gel technology launch in the prior-year period, and market share decline in the U.S.
  • Rimmel continued to grow at a fast pace, gaining market share in Europe and the U.S. supported by a strong innovation pipeline, and gaining traction in the emerging markets.
  • Adjusted operating income for Color Cosmetics decreased to $36.7 million from $50.4 million in the prior-year period, resulting in 10.6% adjusted operating income margin, a decline of 310 basis points compared to the prior-year period.

Skin & Body Care

  • Skin & Body Care net revenues increased by 8% on a like-for-like basis, with growth across all key brands, including philosophy, adidas, and Lancaster.
  • philosophy recorded strong growth for the fourth consecutive quarter. The brand experienced growth across its three key distribution channels, including retail, QVC, and e-commerce supported by higher demand for new launches and existing core franchises. Positive progress in international expansion also fueled the brand strength.
  • adidas returned to growth in the quarter, fueled by momentum in the emerging markets, including China, Brazil, the Middle East, South Africa, and Southeast Asia.  
  • TJoy continued to struggle during the quarter, in spite of the launch of a new ginseng product line, Hydractive, in December 2013, and the reorganization of the management team and distribution network.
  • Adjusted operating loss for Skin & Body Care was ($9.6) million compared to ($2.2) million in the prior-year period, primarily as a result of ramped up advertising & promotion spending in support of the segment's expansion and growth. Fiscal year-to-date, adjusted operating loss for the segment was ($7.0) million. Net of TJoy, the Skin & Body Care segment would have been profitable. The action taken with the non-cash impairment charge in the Skin & Body Care segment is expected to benefit the segment's prospective profitability by $8.3 million annually through reduced amortization expenses.

While market conditions remain challenging, particularly in the mass channel in North America, Coty is targeting to keep growth momentum for the remainder of the calendar year. While the Company expects the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter to be overall flat due to comparison with a strong quarter in the prior-year period, Coty is  targeting growth acceleration in the first half of fiscal year 2015 supported by a powerful innovation plan on its Power brands  and further development in the emerging markets.

  • Coty advanced its SAP Rollout Program with the April 1st launch of SAP in the Company's largest manufacturing plant, located in Sanford, North Carolina.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company operates on a global basis, with the majority of net revenues generated outside of the U.S. Accordingly, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect results of operations. Therefore, to supplement financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, certain financial information is presented excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange translations to provide a framework for assessing how the underlying businesses performed excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange translations ("constant currency"). Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period, with the current period's results calculated at the prior-year period's rates. The Company calculates constant currency information by translating current and prior-period results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. dollars into U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates.  The constant currency calculations do not adjust for the impact of revaluing specific transactions denominated in a currency that is different to the functional currency of that entity when exchange rates fluctuate.  The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company discloses the following constant currency financial measures: net revenues and adjusted operating income.

The Company presents growth on a like-for-like basis. The Company believes that like-for-like growth better enables management and investors to analyze and compare our organic growth from period to period.  In the periods described in this release, like-for-like growth excludes the impact of foreign currency exchange translations, the divestiture of one of our licenses and the expiration of a certain North American service agreement that was not renewed and does not exclude revenues from the acquisition of a third-party distributor.   For reconciliation of our net revenues like-for-like growth, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Net revenues to Like-For-Like Net Revenues."  For a reconciliation of our like-for-like growth by segment and geographic region, see the tables entitled "Net Revenues and Adjusted Operating Income by Segment" and "Net Revenues by Geographic Regions."  

The Company presents SG&A, operating income, operating income margin, gross margin, effective tax rate, cash tax rate, net income and EPS (diluted) on a non-GAAP basis and specifies that these measures are non-GAAP by using the term "adjusted".  The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures better enable management and investors to analyze and compare the underlying business results from period to period.  In calculating adjusted SG&A expense, operating income, operating income margin, gross margin, effective tax rate, cash tax rate, net income and EPS (diluted), the Company excludes the impact of nonrecurring items, private company share-based compensation expense, impairment charges and restructuring costs, to the extent applicable. The Company has provided a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP.  For a reconciliation of adjusted SG&A expense to SG&A expense, adjusted gross margin to gross margin and adjusted EPS (diluted) to EPS (diluted), see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported to Adjusted Results for the Consolidated Statements of Operation."  For a reconciliation of adjusted operating income to operating income and adjusted operating income margin to operating income margin, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Operating Income to Adjusted Operating Income."  For a reconciliation of adjusted effective tax rate and adjusted cash tax rate to effective tax rate, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Income Before Income Taxes and Effective Tax Rates to Adjusted Income Before Income Taxes, Effective Taxes and Cash Tax Rate."  For a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Net Income to Adjusted Net Income."

The Company also presents free cash flow.  Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures and the contingent purchase price consideration payments of up to $30.0 per year related to the Unilever Cosmetics International acquisition.  Free cash flow excludes cash used for private company stock option exercises and cash used for acquisitions.  Management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for debt repayment and other strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations, and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions. For a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow, see the table entitled "reconciliation of Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow".

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.

(b)

In the three months ended March 31, 2014 and nine months ended March 31, 2014, using the treasury stock method, the number of adjusted diluted common shares to calculate non-GAAP adjusted diluted net income per common share was 8.0 and 8.8 million higher, respectively, than the number of common shares used to calculate GAAP diluted net loss per common share, due to the potentially dilutive effect of certain securities issuable under our share-based compensation plans, which were considered anti-dilutive for calculating GAAP diluted net loss per common share. In the three months ended March 31, 2013 and the nine months ended March 31, 2013, the adjusted number of common shares used to calculate non-GAAP adjusted basic and diluted net income attributable to Coty Inc. per common share is identical to the number of common and diluted shares used to calculate GAAP net income (loss) per common share.  

(c)

The current cash tax benefit associated with the amortization of goodwill and other intangible assets for OPI and Philosophy was $6.0 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively and $18.1 and $17.9 for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. This tax benefit is not reflected in Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Coty Inc. The impact of this tax benefit per share is $0.02 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively and $0.05 for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
