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.

Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
