  • Adjusted operating income of $368.0 million was in line with $369.4 million in the prior-year period

Commenting on the Company's performance, Bart Becht, Chairman and interim CEO, said,
"Our Q2 and first half results demonstrate that our strategy, as outlined last quarter, of investment in and revenue growth on our power brands and returning Coty to profitable growth behind efficiency programs is beginning to yield results. While power brands' like-for-like net revenues grew only very modestly in the quarter and half year, we saw renewed strength on a fiscal year-to-date basis in Sally Hansen, Rimmel, Marc Jacobs, Chloe and philosophy, fueled by successful innovations.

Our focus on efficiency in the P&L has resulted in significant growth in both operating and net income in the quarter and we are making good progress on our journey to build a better business. The implementation of our $200 million Global Efficiency Plan is well advanced and we are exploring new cost optimization opportunities, which we believe will further boost operating margins and provide investment funds for our power brands. Equally encouraging is our progress in the tax area, boosting net income and EPS growth.

We also resumed our Share Repurchase Program in Q2, repurchasing 7.6 million shares on the open market for $149.2 million, leaving $150.8 million remaining under the current authorization as of December 31, 2014.

Looking forward, we remain very optimistic about Coty's future and its ability to make steady progress under its new strategy."

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 nonrecurring 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. Net revenues are also reported on an adjusted basis and like-for-like.  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, net income, operating income and operating income margin are presented on an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis. Net revenues on a constant currency basis and like-for-like, adjusted net revenues, 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.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2015 Summary Operating Review

Net revenues of $1,259.6 million were flat like-for-like and declined 5% as reported from the prior-year period. Continued strong growth in Color Cosmetics was offset by declines in Fragrances and Skin & Body Care. The 7% like-for-like increase in the Color Cosmetics segment was driven by all three power brands, Sally Hansen, Rimmel and OPI. Fragrances declined 1% like-for-like in part reflecting innovation phasing on select brands and pressure in the mass fragrances market. Skin & Body Care declined 6% like-for-like, driven primarily by lower net revenues from adidas and Playboy. By geographic region, modest growth in Asia Pacific and flat results in EMEA were offset by a modest decline in the Americas. Asia Pacific grew 1% like-for-like, supported by growth in Australia, Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. EMEA revenues were flat like-for-like, with strength in Germany, UK, Middle East, South Africa and Russia offset by declines in France and Italy. Americas net revenues declined 1% like-for-like due to weakness in the U.S. and Canada, partially offset by strength in Brazil and Travel Retail. Emerging markets grew 5% like-for-like in the quarter.

Adjusted gross margin increased to 59.5% from 58.7% in the prior-year period. Savings in cost of sales, driven primarily by the supply chain savings program, were partially offset by the negative impact of higher customer discounts and allowances.   

Adjusted SG&A expense as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 42.1% from 43.1% in the prior-year period. The percentage decrease was driven by lower fixed costs and lower advertising and consumer promotion spending primarily related to a focus on improving spend efficiency behind our non-power brands.

Operating income increased 28% to $183.7 million from $143.5 million in the prior-year period. The reported operating income increase reflected primarily lower cost of sales and SG&A, which more than offset higher restructuring costs.

Adjusted operating income increased 10% to $200.9 million from $183.3 million in the prior-year period. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating margin increased 200 basis points to 15.9% from 13.9%, supported by higher gross margin, lower advertising and promotion spending, lower amortization expense, and lower fixed costs.

Adjusted effective tax rate was 5.1% compared to 26.8% in the prior-year period. The decline was primarily driven by the recognition of certain tax benefits upon settlement of certain foreign audits totaling $32.5 million.  The adjusted cash tax rate for the six months ending December 31, 2014 was 21.3%.  As a result of these foreign audit settlements, the full year adjusted effective tax rate for FY15 is expected to be approximately 16%.

Net income increased 52% to $125.4 million from $82.5 million in the prior-year period, driven by higher operating income.

Adjusted net income increased 47% to $163.2 million from $111.3 million in the prior-year period, primarily reflecting higher adjusted operating income and lower tax expense.  As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted net income margin increased 460 basis points to 13.0% from 8.4% in the prior-year period.

Cash Flows

  • Net cash provided by operating activities in the quarter was $328.8 million, compared to $346.1 million in the prior-year period. The modest decrease reflects the comparison to the strong working capital performance in the prior year period.
  • Net debt increased by $146.4 million to $2,201.9 million from $2,055.5 million at June 30, 2014 primarily driven by the share repurchase program.
  • During the quarter, the Company repurchased in the open market 7.6 million Class A shares for $149.2 million.
  • Free cash flow was $285.6 million in the quarter compared to $295.1 million in the prior-year period.

Skin & Body Care

  • Skin & Body Care net revenues decreased 6% like-for-like, primarily driven by a decline in body care products, in part due to the business model change in China.

Outlook for Fiscal 2015 Full Year

Coty is targeting to gradually return to profitable growth. The Company remains firmly focused on growing its power brands around the world behind innovation, strong support levels and improving "in-market" execution. Coty is also intensely focused on cost optimization opportunities to improve profitability and to provide for investment in its power brands. The $200 million of annual savings expected from the Global Efficiency Plan should help the Company make progress against this target over time.

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 discontinuation of the TJoy brand, the reorganization of our mass business in China, 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 or conversion of third-party distributors. 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, net income margin, net revenues 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, net income margin 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, adjusted EPS (diluted) to EPS (diluted), and adjusted net revenues to net revenues, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported to Adjusted Results for the Consolidated Statements of Operations." 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 and adjusted net income margin to net income, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Net Income to Adjusted Net Income."

The Company presents net working capital, which is defined as Accounts Receivable plus Inventory minus Accounts Payable, which can be found in the "Consolidated Balance Sheet."

The Company also presents free cash flow and the cash conversion ratio. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures. 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." The cash conversion ratio is defined as net cash provided by operating activities divided by the adjusted operating income.

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.
