25 Jun, 2014, 17:24 ET from H.B. Fuller Company

ST. PAUL, Minn., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- H.B. Fuller Company (NYSE: FUL) today reported financial results for the second quarter that ended May 31, 2014.

Items of Note for the Second Quarter of 2014:

  • Volume increased 5 percent compared to the prior year;
  • Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses were tightly controlled, up less than 3 percent despite absorbing higher than planned Project ONE implementation costs;
  • Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.781 was up 16 percent versus last year;
  • On track to substantially complete business integration by the end of the third quarter 2014;
  • Project ONE proceeding; North America adhesives business operating on SAP and stable;
  • Completed closure of Pirmasens, Germany production site; completed consolidation of two production sites in Guangzhou, China;
  • After the end of the quarter, signed definitive agreement to acquire Tonsan Adhesive, as described in a separate press release issued today.

Second Quarter 2014 Results: Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was $20.5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, versus net income of $25.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, in last year's second quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of 2014 were $0.781, up 16 percent versus the prior year's adjusted result of $0.671

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $544.0 million, up 4.8 percent versus the second quarter of 2013. Higher volume and positive foreign currency translation positively impacted net revenue growth by 4.8 and 0.3 percentage points, respectively. Lower average selling prices negatively impacted net revenue growth by 0.3 percentage points. Organic revenue grew by 4.5 percent year-over-year.

Gross profit margin was down approximately 200 basis points versus the prior year's result due to a variety of factors including excess costs associated with the business integration project in Europe and Project ONE "go-live" in North America, a temporary spike in the cost of certain raw materials in Europe, margin compression on certain products in our Construction Products business and adverse foreign currency exchange effects in Australia.  SG&A expense was up only about 3 percent, or $2.6 million, versus the prior year's second quarter, despite absorbing unplanned and non-recurring costs related to Project ONE in North America.

"During the second quarter we reached historic milestones toward our strategic plan with the closure of a major European production site in May, our initial go-live on SAP in April and the negotiation of a significant acquisition in China.  Our financial performance in the second quarter was mixed. On the positive side, we retained our discipline in discretionary spending and improved our organic revenue growth trend.  Notably, sales volume increased 20 percent in our Construction Products business, 14 percent in Asia and about 5 percent in the Americas. However, these positives were tempered by the costs associated with the execution of our business integration project in Europe and the Project ONE go-live in North America," said Jim Owens, H.B. Fuller president and chief executive officer. "The added costs in the second quarter reflect our commitment to minimize the disruption to our customers while we proceed with the transformation of our company. During the second half of this year we will complete the business integration project in Europe, reduce the costs of our Project ONE implementation and get our profit margin performance back on track in all segments of our business, setting the stage for a strong 2015 and the delivery of our strategic commitments."

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow: At the end of the second quarter of 2014, we had cash totaling $95 million and total debt of $566 million. This compares to first quarter 2014 levels of $113 million and $534 million, respectively. Sequentially, net debt was up by $50 million. Cash flow from operations was negative $17 million in the second quarter primarily due to inventory building to support the business integration project and higher accounts receivable balances. Our receivable balances were relatively high at the end of the quarter because sales in the final month of the quarter were strong and, to a lesser extent, due to the disruption of our normal billing processes during the Project ONE go live in North America.  Capital expenditures were $31 million in the second quarter, with the bulk of this spending related to the Company's ongoing business integration activities and to support Project ONE.

Year-To-Date Results: Net income for the first half of 2014 was $35.1 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, versus net income of $46.6 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, in the first half of 2013. Adjusted total diluted earnings per share in the first half of 2014 were $1.271, up 9 percent from the prior year's result of $1.161.

Net revenue for the first half of 2014 was $1,030.0 million, up 3.1 percent versus the first half of 2013. Higher volume positively impacted net revenue growth by 3.6 percentage points. Lower average selling prices and negative foreign currency translation negatively impacted net revenue growth by 0.3 and 0.2 percentage points, respectively. Organic revenue grew by 3.3 percent year-over-year.

Gross profit margin for the first half was down approximately 120 basis points relative to last year. SG&A expense was up only 1 percent versus the prior year due to tight control of discretionary expenses.

Project ONE: Project ONE is a multi-year project to install SAP application software as our global information technology platform. Our North American adhesives business went live on SAP on April 7, 2014. As expected, the initial go-live for the project disrupted our business processes and required a high level of technical support to stabilize. The duration of the disruption and, therefore, the cost of the technical support required was significantly higher than we anticipated. Currently, the business processes and systems are stable and supporting the normal ongoing requirements of the business. Our adjusted second quarter earnings excludes $8.1 million of unplanned and non-recurring costs associated with Project ONE. These costs include higher than expected costs of technical support for the initial go-live event as well as unplanned costs within the Americas adhesives operating segment to manage the business process disruptions following the go-live.

Business Integration and Special Charges: We have been working since March of 2012 on a comprehensive business integration project to fully assimilate the Forbo industrial adhesives business and to improve the operating performance of our legacy EIMEA operating segment. At the inception of the project we estimated the total costs associated with this project to be $1252 million. We currently expect our total project costs will exceed the estimates by an immaterial amount, primarily due to delays in completing the European portion of the project.  The summary below lays out the estimated project costs, the costs expensed in the second quarter and the total costs incurred to date.

We anticipate that the project will be substantially complete by the end of our fiscal 2014 third quarter. This revised timeline represents a delay of approximately 6 months relative to the original project plan that was announced at the time we acquired the Forbo industrial adhesives business in 2012. Going forward, additional special charges will be incurred primarily relating to the decommissioning and final disposition of the closed production facilities.

Fiscal 2014 Outlook: We are adjusting our full-year earnings per share guidance down to a range of $2.80 to $2.95 from the previous range of $3.00 to $3.15, primarily reflecting the expected delay in realizing margin improvement following the completion of our business integration project in Europe. We are also adjusting our guidance for our core income tax rate, which excludes discrete items, to 29 percent for the full year, down from previous guidance of 30 percent.

Conference Call: The Company will host an investor conference call to discuss second quarter 2014 results on Thursday, June 26, 2014, at 9:30 a.m. Central U.S. time (10:30 a.m. Eastern U.S. time).

1     Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) is a non-GAAP financial measure and excludes items listed on the adjusted earnings per share reconciliation table above which excludes: special charges associated with two previously announced events: the EIMEA business transformation project and the expenses associated with the Forbo acquisition integration project, which have been combined and are now referred to as the "business integration"; additional costs associated with the Company's ongoing Project ONE implementation; and acquisition project costs.
2    The original cost estimate for special charges was $121 million. During the third and fourth quarters of 2013, the Company revised the estimate upward to $125 million to reflect higher non-cash items and a revision of the total spend in each of the categories.
3     Segment operating income is defined as gross profit less SG&A expense. Items that are reported on the special charges line of the income statement are excluded from the segment operating income calculation.
4    EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined on a consolidated basis as gross profit, less SG&A expense, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. On a segment basis it is defined as operating income, plus depreciation expense, plus amortization expense. EBITDA margin is defined as EBITDA divided by net revenue.
5    Segment operating margin is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as gross profit, less SG&A expense, divided by net revenue.
