Commenting on the Company's performance, Michele Scannavini, CEO of Coty Inc., said,
"We faced a challenging second quarter, as expected. U.S. market softness particularly in the mass fragrance and nail categories, and the high level of promotional activity through the holiday season, have impacted our performance in mature markets. On a more positive note, our investment in the emerging markets is starting to yield positive results, with solid growth driven by Brazil, Southeast Asia, and South Africa.

While conditions in the U.S. and in certain European markets remain challenged heading into the current quarter, we continue to target returning to top-line growth in the second half of our fiscal year, fueled by strong initiatives and increased investment behind our power brands, and further acceleration of our business in the emerging markets. During this time, we will strive to optimize our cost structure and increase the cash generation from our business.

The $200 million share repurchase program reaffirms our confidence in the company's strategy and long-term growth potential.  It also demonstrates our on-going commitment to delivering value to our shareholders."

 

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 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, adjusted selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) and adjusted operating income are presented on an actual and a constant currency basis.  SG&A, operating income, effective tax rate, net income and earnings per share (EPS) are presented on a reported (GAAP) basis and an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis.  Adjusted SG&A, adjusted operating income, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS on an actual and constant currency basis, net revenues on a constant currency basis and like-for-like 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 2014 Summary Operating Review

Net revenues of $1,323.2 million decreased 4% like-for-like and as reported from the prior-year period. Positive gross sales growth was more than offset by increased discounts and allowances, reflecting high competitive pressure in this soft market dynamic. By region, the decline was driven by the Americas, reflecting challenging U.S. market conditions in the mass retail channel, particularly in nail and fragrances. EMEA net revenues marginally decreased in the quarter, as strong results in Eastern Europe and South Africa were more than offset by continued softness in Southern Europe. Asia Pacific increased 2% in the quarter. Emerging Markets had solid 6% growth, driven by Southeast Asia, Brazil, and South Africa, where the Company is positively leveraging the new commercial structures. By segment, Color Cosmetics decreased 9% versus the prior year period driven by the decline in Sally Hansen, strongly affected by the negative dynamic in the U.S. nail market and the unfavorable comparison with the substantial gel technology launch in the prior year period. Net of Sally Hansen, Color Cosmetics grew, mainly thanks to strong Rimmel performance. Fragrances declined 2% versus prior year, reflecting the timing of new launch activity, the impact of expired licenses, and high promotional activity, particularly in the declining mass fragrance market. Skin & Body Care decreased 2%, as solid growth in philosophy was more than offset by the difficulties faced by the TJoy brand in China. Net of TJoy, Skin & Body Care grew in the low single digits in the quarter and the last six months.   

Adjusted gross margin decreased to 58.7% compared to 59.2% in the prior-year period. This decline primarily reflected higher customer discounts and allowances necessary to compete in the difficult market environment and unfavorable currency impact, partially offset by cost of goods savings.  

Adjusted SG&A expense as a percentage of net revenues increased to 43.1% from 41.6% in the prior-year period. This reflected continued advertising and consumer promotion spend in support of the brands and accelerated investments to build capabilities in emerging markets, partially offset by tight administrative cost controls in the developed markets.   

Operating income declined to $143.5 million from $222.3 million in the prior-year period. The operating income decline was driven by lower gross profit, higher SG&A,  and a prior year gain on sale that did not repeat in the fiscal second quarter of this year.    

Adjusted operating income declined 17% to $183.3 million at actual rates, from $220.7 million in the prior-year period. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating margin decreased 210 basis points to 13.9% from 16.0%, primarily driven by lower gross margin and increased SG&A expense from higher investment in emerging markets.

Adjusted effective tax rate was 26.8% compared to 32.2% in the prior-year period.  The decrease was a result of a higher effective rate in the prior year incorporating the expected expiration in 2012 of certain U.S. tax credits on foreign sourced income, which were subsequently reinstated in 2013. The adjusted cash tax rate for the six months ending December 31, 2013 was 14.8%.

Net income decreased to $82.5 million from $123.2 million in the prior-year period. This decrease primarily reflected lower operating income partially offset by lower tax expense.

Adjusted net income decreased to $111.3 million from $127.1 million in the prior-year period, primarily reflecting lower adjusted operating income, partially offset by lower income taxes.  As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted net income margin decreased 80 basis points to 8.4% from 9.2%.

Cash Flows

  • Net cash provided by operating activities decreased $9.7 million to $346.1 million from $355.8 million in the prior-year period, excluding cash used in the prior year for private company stock option exercises.
  • Net debt decreased by $254.7 million to $1,455.1 million from $1,709.8 million at June 30, 2013.
  • Free cash flow in the quarter of $295.1 million was $15.8 million lower than the prior-year period excluding cash used for private company stock option exercises, resulting in year-to-date free cash flow of $330.7 million, $101.6 million above last year, fueled by strong improvement in net working capital.

Fragrances

  • Lower net revenues on a like-for-like basis were primarily a result of the strong promotional activity in the market, to face a softer than expected consumption dynamic in the holiday season. As a result, the 2% volume growth in Coty's fragrance business was more than offset by the negative price/mix impact. Unfavorable phasing of new launch activity compared to the prior year also impacted the quarterly results.
  • Strong performance in the Company's Marc Jacobs, Chloe, and Davidoff power brands and in Roberto Cavalli were more than offset by declines in certain brands, including in certain lines of Calvin Klein and in Lady Gaga.
  • Adjusted operating income for Fragrances decreased 11% to $143.5 million from $160.5 million in the prior-year period, resulting in 18.1% adjusted operating income margin, a decline of 170 basis points versus the prior year.

Color Cosmetics

  • Net revenues declined in the Color Cosmetics segment primarily due to pressure in Sally Hansen as a result of the unfavorable comparisons, including the substantial new gel technology launch in the prior-year period, decreasing nail category demand in the U.S., and declining market share due to higher competitive activity.
  • Rimmel continued to grow during the quarter significantly ahead of market pace in both the U.S. and Europe, supported by a strong innovation pipeline and brand investment.
  • Adjusted operating income for Color Cosmetics decreased to $33.7 million from $57.1 million in the prior-year period, resulting in 10.1% adjusted operating income margin, a decline of 540 basis points compared to the prior-year period.

Skin & Body Care

  • Skin & Body Care net revenues declined by $2.1 million, or 2% on a like-for-like basis, due to a decline in the TJoy brand.
  • philosophy recorded solid growth for the third quarter in a row. The brand experienced growth in the U.S. across its three key distribution channels, including brick & mortar, QVC, and philosophy.com, driven by stronger demand for new innovations. Positive progress in international expansion also fueled the brand growth.
  • adidas was in line with the prior year period on a like-for-like basis, as strong momentum in emerging markets and the U.S. was offset by softness in Southern and Eastern Europe.  
  • Adjusted operating income for Skin & Body Care was $6.1 million compared to $3.1 million in the prior-year period, resulting in a 150 basis point improvement in the adjusted operating margin.

Americas

  • The net revenues decrease in the region was driven by the decline in the U.S., mainly due to nail.
  • Emerging markets in the region, particularly Brazil, and Travel Retail experienced solid growth.

Europe, Middle East & Africa

  • The modest decline in revenue was driven primarily by developed markets, which saw continued promotional activity and discounting.
  • Growth in the region's emerging markets, including Eastern Europe and South Africa, partially offset the declines in the developed markets.
  • Key brands positively contributing to the performance in the region included Chloe, Rimmel, Roberto Cavalli, and Katy Perry.

Asia Pacific

  • The net revenue growth was driven by a strong increase in Southeast Asia, both in the prestige and mass channels, where Coty's business is benefitting from the newly acquired StarAsia distribution company.

 

Outlook for Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter and Full Year

In the second half, the Company expects the challenges coming from market softness to continue, particularly in the mass channel. In spite of these challenges, Coty continues to target returning to top-line growth, fueled by further acceleration of its growth in emerging markets, competitive innovation, and continuous marketing support to its power brands.

Other noteworthy Company developments:

  • On December 23rd, Coty together with UAE-based luxury goods distributors, Chalhoub Group and Jashanmal, announced the formation of Coty Distribution Emirates LLC, a new joint venture established to strengthen Coty's business in the United Arab Emirates. This joint venture will allow Coty to expand its go-to-market capabilities in the UAE and further strengthen marketing support behind Coty's already successful brand portfolio.
  • On January 6th, Coty announced the acquisition of Lena White Ltd, the largest international distributor of OPI. Through this purchase, Coty will directly lead the development of the OPI brand in the UK, its second-largest market, providing the necessary resources to accelerate development in both the retail and professional channels.
  • On February 14th, Coty announced a $200 million share repurchase program for its Class A shares.
  • The Company has revised its savings estimates for its Productivity Program, including accelerating the timeline of the program by 12-18 months. The Company expects to be more than halfway towards its savings goal by the end of FY14 and should meet the full $40-45 million savings goal by the end of FY15, with potential for further upside to this savings target.

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, adjusted SG&A expense 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 expense, operating income, effective tax rate, net income and EPS 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, effective tax rate, net income and EPS, the Company excludes the impact of nonrecurring items, private company share-based compensation expense 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, and adjusted EPS to EPS, 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, see the table entitled "Reconciliation of Reported Operating Income to Adjusted Operating Income."  For a reconciliation of adjusted effective 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 and Effective Taxes."  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.

"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies. It started out with bitcoin, Ethereum, and IBM evaluated these particular blockchain technologies and found they were anonymous and permissionless and that many companies were looking for permissioned blockchain," stated René Bostic, Technical VP of the IBM Cloud Unit in North America, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Conventi...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.
DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
