RAISES SALES, EARNINGS, ADJUSTED FREE CASH FLOW PRODUCTIVITY AND CASH RETURN GUIDANCE

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) reported second quarter fiscal year 2020 net sales of $18.2 billion, an increase of five percent versus the prior year. Excluding the net impacts of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, organic sales also increased five percent. Diluted net earnings per share were $1.41, up 16% versus the prior year. Core earnings per share increased 14% to $1.42. Currency-neutral core EPS increased 15% versus the prior year.

Operating cash flow was $4.4 billion for the quarter. Free cash flow productivity was 100%. The Company returned $5.4 billion of cash to shareholders through $1.9 billion in dividend payments and $3.5 billion of common stock repurchases.

“We delivered another strong quarter of organic sales growth, core earnings per share and cash returned to shareowners,” said David Taylor, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our strong first half results enable us to further increase our outlook for the full fiscal year across each of these metrics and to increase our commitment of cash return to shareowners. Our focus remains on executing our strategies of superiority, productivity, constructive disruption and improving P&G’s organization and culture to deliver balanced top-line and bottom-line growth along with strong cash generation in a challenging competitive and macroeconomic environment.”

October - December Quarter Discussion

Net sales in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 were $18.2 billion, up five percent versus the prior year. Unfavorable foreign exchange negatively impacted sales by one percentage point for the quarter. Excluding the net impacts of foreign exchange, acquisitions and divestitures, organic sales also increased five percent driven by a three percent increase in organic shipment volume. Increased pricing contributed one percent to net sales. Positive mix was a one percent help to net sales driven by the disproportionate organic growth of the Health Care segment and the Skin and Personal Care category, both of which have higher than Company average selling prices.

Other includes the sales mix impact from acquisitions and divestitures and rounding impacts necessary to reconcile volume to net sales.

  • Beauty segment organic sales increased eight percent versus year ago. Skin and Personal Care organic sales increased double digits driven by premium innovation and increased pricing. Hair Care organic sales increased mid-single digits driven by premium innovation, positive mix impact from the disproportionate growth of premium products and devaluation-driven price increases.
  • Grooming segment organic sales increased four percent versus year ago. Shave Care organic sales increased low single digits driven by innovation and devaluation-driven price increases partially offset by related unit volume declines in certain markets and competitive activity. Appliances organic sales increased high single digits driven by innovation and positive mix impact from the disproportionate growth of premium products.
  • Health Care segment organic sales increased seven percent. Oral Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due to innovation and positive mix in the premium toothpaste and toothbrush segments. Personal Health Care organic sales increased high single digits primarily due to innovation, increased marketing spending, increased pricing and positive mix due to strong growth in North America Respiratory category, which has higher than average selling prices. Personal Health Care all-in sales increased over 30% versus the base period with the addition of the Merck OTC business.
  • Fabric and Home Care segment organic sales increased five percent for the quarter. Fabric Care organic sales increased mid-single digits driven by innovation and positive mix driven by the disproportionate growth of premium products, partially offset by retailer inventory decreases in Japan following the build-up in advance of the October VAT increase. Home Care organic sales increased high single digits driven by innovation, increased pricing and positive mix due to the disproportionate growth of premium products.
  • Baby, Feminine and Family Care segment organic sales increased one percent versus year ago. Baby Care organic sales decreased low single digits due to competitive activity, category contraction in certain markets and retailer inventory decrease in Japan following the October VAT increase, partially offset by positive mix due to premium innovation. Feminine Care organic sales increased mid-single digits driven by innovation, increased marketing spending and positive product mix resulting from the disproportionate growth of premium products. Family Care organic sales increased low single digits due to innovation and increased pricing, partially offset by unfavorable mix impact due to the disproportionate growth of large sizes.

Diluted net earnings per share were $1.41, a 16% increase versus the prior year, driven primarily by the increase in net sales and an increase in operating margin. Core earnings per share were $1.42, a 14% increase versus the prior year, due to lower non-core restructuring charges versus the prior year. Currency-neutral core earnings per share increased 15% for the quarter.

Reported gross margin increased 250 basis points, including 50 basis points of lower non-core restructuring charges versus the prior year. Core gross margin increased approximately 200 basis points versus the prior year, including 10 basis points of negative foreign exchange impacts. On a currency-neutral basis, core gross margin increased approximately 210 basis points driven by 120 basis points of productivity savings, 40 basis points of pricing benefit, 70 basis points from commodity cost decreases and 20 basis points help from other items, partially offset by 40 basis points of unfavorable product mix.

Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) as a percentage of sales increased 30 basis points on a reported basis versus the prior year, including a 10 basis-point hurt from a year-on-year increase in non-core restructuring charges. Core and currency-neutral core SG&A as a percentage of sales increased 20 basis points versus the prior year as 120 basis points of sales leverage benefit and 100 basis points of savings from overhead and marketing expenses were more than offset by 150 basis points of increased marketing investments and 90 basis points of inflation, increased digital investments, incentive compensation costs and other impacts.

Operating profit margin increased 230 basis points versus the base period on a reported basis including approximately 40 basis points help from lower non-core restructuring charges. Core and currency-neutral core operating margin increased 190 basis points including total productivity cost savings of 220 basis points. Foreign exchange was neutral to operating margin for the quarter.

Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance

The Company raised its outlook for fiscal 2020 all-in sales growth from a range of three to five percent to a range of four to five percent growth versus the prior fiscal year. This estimate includes a modest negative impact from foreign exchange, largely offset by a modest positive impact from acquisitions and divestitures. The Company increased its guidance for organic sales growth from a range of three to five percent to a range of four to five percent.

The Company increased its guidance range for fiscal 2020 all-in GAAP diluted net earnings per share growth to 235% to 245%, noting that the comparison period is significantly depressed by the Gillette Shave Care impairment charges in fiscal 2019. P&G raised its fiscal 2020 guidance for core earnings per share growth from a range of five to ten percent to a range of eight to eleven percent versus fiscal 2019.

The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP adjusted free cash flow productivity measure without unreasonable efforts because the Company cannot predict the timing and amounts of discrete cash items, such as acquisitions, divestitures, or impairments, which could significantly impact GAAP results. The Company increased its estimate for fiscal 2020 adjusted free cash flow productivity from 95% to 100%.

The Company now expects to pay over $7.5 billion in dividends and repurchase $7 billion to $8 billion of common shares in fiscal 2020. This compares to prior guidance of over $7.5 billion in dividends and $6 billion to $8 billion of common share repurchases.

The Procter & Gamble Company

Exhibit 1: Non-GAAP Measures

The following provides definitions of the non-GAAP measures used in Procter & Gamble'sJanuary 23, 2020 earnings release and the reconciliation to the most closely related GAAP measure. We believe that these measures provide useful perspective on underlying business results and trends (i.e., trends excluding non-recurring or unusual items) and provide a supplemental measure of year-on-year results. The non-GAAP measures described below are used by management in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for business strategy purposes. These measures may be useful to investors as they provide supplemental information about business performance and provide investors a view of our business results through the eyes of management. These measures are also used to evaluate senior management and are a factor in determining their at-risk compensation. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to be considered by the user in place of the related GAAP measure, but rather as supplemental information to our business results. These non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures used by other companies due to possible differences in method and in the items or events being adjusted.

The Core earnings measures included in the following reconciliation tables refer to the equivalent GAAP measures adjusted as applicable for the following item:

Incremental Restructuring: The Company has had and continues to have an ongoing level of restructuring activities. Such activities have resulted in ongoing annual restructuring related charges of approximately $250 - $500 million before tax. In 2012, the Company began a $10 billion strategic productivity and cost savings initiative that included incremental restructuring activities. In 2017, we communicated details of an additional multi-year productivity and cost savings plan. This results in incremental restructuring charges to accelerate productivity efforts and cost savings. The adjustment to Core earnings includes only the restructuring costs above what we believe are the normal recurring level of restructuring costs.

We do not view the above item to be part of our sustainable results and its exclusion from Core earnings measures provides a more comparable measure of year-on-year results. This item is also excluded when evaluating senior management in determining their at-risk compensation.

Organic sales growth: Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of sales growth excluding the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures and foreign exchange from year-over-year comparisons. We believe this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. This measure is used in assessing achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation.

Core operating profit margin: Core operating profit margin is a measure of the Company's operating margin adjusted for items as indicated. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Core gross margin: Core gross margin is a measure of the Company's gross margin adjusted for items as indicated. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Core selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense as a percentage of net sales: Core SG&A expense as a percentage of net sales is a measure of the Company's selling, general and administrative expenses adjusted for items as indicated. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Core EPS and currency-neutral Core EPS: Core earnings per share, or Core EPS, is a measure of the Company's diluted net earnings per share adjusted as indicated. Currency-neutral Core EPS is a measure of the Company's Core EPS excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management views these non-GAAP measures as useful supplemental measures of Company performance over time. These measures are also used when evaluating senior management in determining their at-risk compensation.

Free cash flow: Free cash flow is defined as operating cash flow less capital spending. Free cash flow represents the cash that the Company is able to generate after taking into account planned maintenance and asset expansion. Management views free cash flow as an important measure because it is one factor used in determining the amount of cash available for dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions and other discretionary investments.

Free cash flow productivity: Free cash flow productivity is defined as the ratio of free cash flow to net earnings. Management views free cash flow productivity as a useful measure to help investors understand P&G’s ability to generate cash. Free cash flow productivity is used by management in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for budget planning purposes. This measure is also used in assessing the achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation. The Company's long-term target is to generate annual free cash flow productivity at or above 90 percent.
