Stanley Black & Decker Reports 2Q 2014 Results

Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) today announced second quarter 2014 financial results.

  • 2Q’14 Revenues Up 1% To $2.9 Billion
  • Gross Margin Expanded 130 Basis Points; Excluding Charges Gross Margin Expanded 100 Basis Points To 36.5%
  • Operating Margin Expanded 200 Basis Points To 13.5%; Excluding Charges Operating Margin Expanded 110 Basis Points To 13.7%
  • 2Q’14 Diluted GAAP EPS Was $1.37; Excluding Charges, 2Q’14 Diluted EPS Was $1.43
  • Increasing 2014 FY EPS Guidance Range To:
    • $5.38 To $5.48 On A GAAP Basis (From $5.23 To $5.38)
    • $5.50 To $5.60, Excluding Charges (From $5.35 To $5.50)

2Q’14 Key Points:

  • Net sales for the period were $2.9 billion, up 1% versus the prior year, primarily attributable to price (+1%) as volume, acquisitions and currency were all relatively flat for the quarter. Organic growth was negatively impacted by unusually weak emerging markets due to economic and political circumstances as well as a delayed and shortened CDIY North American outdoor product season. These factors muted organic growth by two points.
  • The gross margin rate for the quarter was 36.5%. Excluding charges the gross margin rate was also 36.5%, up 100 basis points from the prior year rate of 35.5%, as price, productivity and cost actions more than offset significant unfavorable currency.
  • SG&A expenses were 23.0% of sales. Excluding charges, SG&A expenses were 22.8% of sales, compared to a 2Q’13 level of 22.9%.
  • Operating margin rate was 13.5%. Excluding charges, operating margin rate was 13.7%, up 110 basis points from 2Q’13, as actions taken in 4Q’13 to improve profitability and generate operating leverage more than offset unfavorable currency of $20 million which was in line with expectations.
  • The tax rate was 25.1%. Excluding charges, the tax rate was 23.0%, 170 basis points lower than the 2Q’13 rate of 24.7% due primarily to a higher level of earnings in lower-taxed foreign jurisdictions.
  • Working capital turns for the quarter were 6.7, down 0.4 turns from 2Q’13. Free cash flow for the quarter inclusive of $35 million of one-time payments was $376 million, a $272 million increase over 2Q’13.

Stanley Black & Decker’s Chairman and CEO, John F. Lundgren, commented, “Our focus is on executing our 2014 operating priorities and our strong second quarter and first half results demonstrate the benefits of initiatives to drive margin expansion and operating leverage through pricing and cost management across the organization. What makes the results even more notable is that we overcame significant headwinds relating to currency, the impact of cold weather on our North American CDIY outdoor product business and a continued volatile environment in the emerging markets. Given our encouraging performance thus far, and our visibility into the remainder of the year, we have the confidence to increase our EPS guidance for 2014.

“Our focus for the balance of 2014 remains on continuing to deliver improved operating performance including both organic growth and margin expansion as well as achieving our previously communicated capital allocation objectives. This will position us well to drive long-term sustainable improvements to the Company’s cash flow return on investment.”

  • In CDIY, net sales were flat versus 2Q’13 as the aggregate impact of volume, price and acquisitions (+1%) was offset by currency (-1%). Organic growth for the quarter was up slightly as growth in Europe offset a slow start to the North American outdoor product season caused by abnormally cold weather conditions. Europe was up 7% organically for the quarter, driven by continued share gains from successful new product introductions across key regions and the benefits of an expanding retail footprint. Emerging markets organic growth was up 1%, impacted by economic and political factors in markets including but not limited to Venezuela, Russia, Turkey and Brazil. Organic growth in North America was down 2% due to the outdoor product business offsetting continuing solid momentum in other categories. Excluding charges, overall segment profit rate was a post-merger record 15.7%, up from the 2Q’13 rate of 15.3%, as price, productivity and cost management more than offset continuing currency pressures.
  • Net sales in the Industrial segment rose 3% versus 2Q’13 as a result of volume (+2%) and acquisitions (+1%). Pricing was up slightly and currency was relatively flat for the quarter. Engineered Fastening posted 2% organic growth driven by strong global automotive revenues partially offset by weaker electronic volume. Organic sales for the Industrial and Automotive Repair (“IAR”) business were up 2% primarily as a result of new product introductions and strength within Mac Tools industrial distribution and Advanced Industrial Solutions, partially offset by weak emerging markets. Infrastructure organic growth was up 5% due to solid Oil & Gas activity coupled with improving demand for hydraulic tools.
  • Overall Industrial segment profit rate excluding charges was 17.0%, up 260 basis points from the 2Q’13 rate of 14.4% reflecting favorable volume leverage, productivity gains, and cost control, partially offset by currency. Infastech remains on-plan to achieve both earnings and cost synergy targets, which helped drive record operating margin in Engineered Fastening for the quarter.
  • Net sales in Security were relatively flat versus 2Q’13 as lower volume (-2%) was offset by pricing (+1%) and currency (+1%). Organic growth within North America and emerging markets (“NA & EM”) increased 2% due primarily to performance within the commercial electronics and automatic doors businesses. Europe declined 6% organically due to lower installation and recurring revenues most notably in Southern Europe. Within Europe, recurring revenue attrition levels continued to show steady improvement as attrition fell within our targeted range of 10%-12%, reflecting a significant improvement both sequentially and versus the prior year’s second quarter.

Security segment profit rate excluding charges was 11.3%, up 80 basis points from the 2Q’13 rate of 10.5% and 220 basis points higher than the 1Q’14 rate. The year over year increase in the rate relates primarily to improved operating performance within North America. The sequential increase in the rate relates to increased volume and improved operating performance across NA & EM and Europe, which were up 180 and 240 basis points, respectively.

President and Chief Operating Officer, James M. Loree, commented, “We posted a respectable quarter with strong cash flow and margin expansion amidst unusually challenging economic and geopolitical conditions especially in the emerging markets. While this year’s truncated outdoor product season also took its toll on CDIY’s second quarter growth, the second half organic growth outlook remains robust which will undoubtedly drive operating leverage given our well tuned cost structure. Our Industrial results were again strong as all key businesses delivered sales and margin growth. As we look to the emerging markets we believe we are positioned to generate above market growth for the remainder of the year and into 2015, leveraging recent investments in the regions as well as our mid-price point product launches which are currently underway.

“As for Security, we are now beginning to see the margin improvement actions translate into financial results which contributed to the sequential improvement in operating margin versus the first quarter. Europe’s performance in the quarter combined with continued favorable momentum in North America gives us further confidence in our ability to drive year over year operating margin growth from Security in the second half of 2014.”

Increasing 2014 Outlook

Donald Allan Jr., Senior Vice President and CFO commented, “We are raising the range of our previously communicated 2014 EPS outlook to $5.50 to $5.60 on an adjusted basis or $5.38 to $5.48 on a GAAP basis. We anticipate a stronger full year financial performance within certain of our businesses, most notably the Industrial segment, and further Company-wide cost savings to more than offset slightly lower full year organic sales growth due to the weather impact on the CDIY outdoor product season and slower underlying emerging markets growth. This revised guidance is consistent with our EPS profile in recent years whereby approximately 45% of annual EPS typically falls within the first half of the year. We have strong conviction that our 2014 free cash flow will be at least $675 million inclusive of approximately $250 million of one-time payments primarily relating to 2013 restructuring actions.

“Enhancing our operating leverage, continuing to drive organic growth and improving Security margins, particularly within Europe, remain our key operational priorities for this year. To ensure we continue to accomplish these important objectives, we are steadfastly focused on supporting our organic growth initiatives, executing our cost reduction actions, maintaining a sharp focus on indirect expenses and improving price where practicable to protect margins. We also remain committed to our capital allocation plan of returning up to $1 billion of capital to shareholders through 2015 as well as a strong and growing dividend. Taken together, these actions along with modest debt deleveraging are expected to increase our cash flow return on investment by 250 basis points through 2015.”

Merger And Acquisition (M&A) One-Time Charges

Total one-time charges in 2Q’14 of $4.1 million (net of a $1.7 million restructuring credit) primarily relate to integration and employee-related matters. Gross margin includes $0.3 million of these one-time charges while SG&A includes $5.3 million. $2.6 million of these costs that impact the Company’s operating margin are included in segment results, with the remainder in corporate overhead. Also included in one-time charges are $0.2 million in Other, net.

These results reflect the Company’s continuing operations. In 3Q’13, the Company classified two small businesses within the Security and Industrial segments as held for sale based on management's intention to sell these businesses. The business within the Industrial segment was sold in February 2014. The operating results of the business within the Industrial segment, including the loss on sale, have been reported as discontinued operations for 2Q’13, while the operating results of the business within the Security segment have been reported as discontinued operations for 2Q’14 and 2Q’13. In addition, the Company sold its Hardware & Home Improvement business (HHI), including the residential portion of Tong Lung in December of 2012. The sale of this business occurred in a First and Second Closing. The First closing, which excluded the residential portion of Tong Lung, occurred on December 17, 2012. The Second closing in which the residential portion of Tong Lung was sold occurred on April 8, 2013. The operating results of the residential portion of Tong Lung have been reported as discontinued operations for 2013 through the date of the sale. Total sales reported as discontinued operations were $8.0 million and $13.1 million for 2Q’14 and 2Q’13, respectively.

The Company recast 2013 segment net sales and profit between the CDIY and Industrial segments to align reporting with the current management of the Company’s operations in the emerging markets to be comparable with the current year presentation. There is no impact to the consolidated financial statements of the Company as a result of this segment realignment.

Organic sales growth is defined as total sales growth less the sales of companies acquired in the past twelve months and any foreign currency impacts. Operating margin is defined as sales less cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses. Management uses operating margin and its percentage of net sales as key measures to assess the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the related measures at the segment level. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital and software expenditures. Management considers free cash flow an important indicator of its liquidity, as well as its ability to fund future growth and to provide a return to the shareowners. Free cash flow does not include deductions for mandatory debt service, other borrowing activity, discretionary dividends on the Company’s common stock and business acquisitions, among other items. The normalized statement of operations and business segment information, as reconciled to GAAP on pages 12 to 15 for 2014 and 2013, are considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company’s operating performance and earnings results aside from the material impact of the one-time charges and payments associated with the Black & Decker merger, the Niscayah and Infastech acquisitions and other smaller acquisitions of the Company. Normalized free cash flow, as reconciled from the associated GAAP measures on page 10 for 2014 and 2013 is considered a meaningful pro forma metric to aid the understanding of the Company’s cash flow performance aside from the material impact of the M&A-related payments and charges.
