Apr 28, 2015, 16:02 ET from Tempur Sealy International, Inc.

LEXINGTON, Ky., April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur Sealy International, Inc. (NYSE: TPX), the world's largest bedding provider, today announced financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2015. The Company also increased financial guidance for the full year 2015.

FIRST QUARTER FINANCIAL SUMMARY

  • Earnings per diluted share ("EPS") under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the first quarter of 2015 were $0.38 as compared to GAAP EPS of $0.44 in the first quarter of 2014. The 2015 results reflect integration costs, additional costs related to the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting, and a redemption value adjustment to the Company's redeemable non-controlling interest. The 2014 results also reflect integration costs.

  • Adjusted EPS (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) increased 3.8% to $0.55 in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to adjusted EPS of $0.53 in the first quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, adjusted EPS increased 20%.

  • Total net sales increased 5.4% to $739.5 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $701.9 million in the first quarter of 2014. The net sales increase was driven by strong sales growth in the North America business segment. On a constant currency basis, total net sales increased 9.4%, with increased net sales in both the North America and International business segments. For information on the methodology used to present information on a constant currency basis, please refer to "Constant Currency Information" at the end of this press release.

  • GAAP gross margin was 37.7% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 38.4% in the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted gross margin (which is a non-GAAP financial measure), which excludes costs incurred to align the business related to the Sealy acquisition, was 38.5% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 38.7% in the first quarter of 2014. The reduction in gross margin was a result of a decreased gross margin in the International business segment, offset by a solid improvement in gross margin of the North America business segment.

  • GAAP operating income was $54.4 million in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to $62.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. Operating income in the first quarter of 2015 included $11.7 million of integration costs and $2.1 million of additional costs related to the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting, and operating income in the first quarter of 2014 included $7.4 million of integration costs. Adjusted operating income (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) was $68.2 million, or 9.2% of net sales in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to $69.8 million, or 9.9% of net sales in the first quarter of 2014. Unfavorable foreign exchange rates impacted adjusted operating income by $8.9 million in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the prior year.

  • GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2015 was $23.4 million as compared to GAAP net income of $27.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. The Company reported adjusted net income (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) of $34.1 million for the first quarter of 2015 as compared to adjusted net income of $32.6 million for the first quarter of 2014, a 4.6% increase.

  • Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") for the first quarter of 2015 was $75.9 million as compared to $85.1 million for the first quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA (adjusted EBITDA and EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures) for the first quarter of 2015 was $90.5 million as compared to $91.4 million for the first quarter of 2014. Unfavorable foreign exchange rates impacted adjusted EBITDA by $8.5 million in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the prior year.

  • The Company ended the first quarter of 2015 with consolidated funded debt less qualified cash (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) of $1.6 billion. The ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to adjusted EBITDA was 3.93 times, calculated in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility.

Tempur Sealy International, Inc. CEO Mark Sarvary commented, "Tempur Sealy's first quarter growth in sales and adjusted EPS, and the improved operating margins in North America, continue our momentum from the fourth quarter of 2014. They underscore the important progress we are making in driving enhanced financial results in 2015 and beyond. Our International results were slightly better than our projections, with a double-digit net sales increase on a constant currency basis. We delivered growth across Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America; however, as expected, foreign exchange headwinds impacted year-over-year sales and put pressure on margins. We expect performance for the remainder of the year to build on this momentum, and we are confident that our initiatives across all of our operations will drive continued sales, margin and adjusted EPS growth, despite a challenging currency environment."

Sarvary added, "We responded to the changed competitive environment in 2012 by taking decisive and effective action through 2013 and 2014, which resulted in a doubling of the value of Tempur Sealy since September 26, 2012 - the day before we announced the transformational acquisition of Sealy. The integration is now largely complete, and Sealy had strong growth in 2014 and entered 2015 with strong momentum, a dramatic change in trend. At the same time, we re-energized Tempur-Pedic in North America, achieving a 9% sales increase in 2014 and gaining market share, along with significantly improved margins in the second half of the year. We also positioned our International business for future growth by setting the ground work for an expansion of Sealy in Europe and Japan. We know that we have the opportunity to improve margins, and have implemented a series of initiatives that will increase operating margins by 300 basis points over the next three years. The performance in the first quarter of 2015 demonstrates that the actions we have taken are working and that momentum is building."

P. Andrews McLane, Chairman of Tempur Sealy, said, "The Company has reestablished its industry-leading position, but more work remains to be done. Today, Tempur Sealy is at a critical juncture, and a change in leadership, including the CEO, at this time would result in a transition period that would, at a minimum, slow the momentum that we are currently experiencing, if not derail it altogether. It is critical to the success of our business and the investments of our shareholders that the current Board and management team continue executing on the plan that is clearly delivering positive results."

Business Segment Highlights

The Company's business segments include North America and International. Corporate operating expenses are not included in either of the business segments and are presented separately as a reconciling item to consolidated results.

North America net sales increased 7.5% to $594.1 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $552.6 million in the first quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, North America net sales increased 8.5%. GAAP gross margin was 34.2% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 33.7% in the first quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin was 9.7% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 9.6% in the first quarter of 2014. For information on the methodology used to present information on a constant currency basis, please refer to "Constant Currency Information" at the end of this press release.

North America adjusted operating margin (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) was 11.2% as compared to 10.6% in the first quarter of 2014. The improvement in North America adjusted operating margin during the first quarter of 2015 was the result of an improvement in adjusted gross margin (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) of 1.1%, offset partially by higher advertising expenses in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014. Unfavorable foreign exchange impacted operating margin by 0.4% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014.

International net sales decreased 2.6% to $145.4 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $149.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, International net sales increased 12.8%. GAAP gross margin was 52.0% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 55.8% in the first quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin was 17.4% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to 22.4% in the first quarter of 2014.

International adjusted operating margin (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) was 18.3% as compared to 22.4% in the first quarter of 2014. The decline in International adjusted operating margin during the first quarter of 2015 was primarily the result of a decline in adjusted gross margin (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) of 3.4%. Unfavorable foreign exchange impacted operating margin by 1.0% in the first quarter of 2015 as compared to the same period in 2014.

Corporate GAAP operating expenses increased 19.0% to $28.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $24.2 million in the first quarter of 2014. The 2015 results reflect an additional $2.1 million of costs incurred in connection with the proxy solicitation campaign being conducted by a shareholder of the Company for the 2015 Annual Meeting and related issues.

Corporate adjusted operating expenses (which is a non-GAAP financial measure) increased 12.7% to $24.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $22.0 million in the first quarter of 2014. The increase in corporate adjusted operating expenses in the first quarter of 2015 was related to higher compensation expenses as well as higher legal and professional costs.

For additional information regarding adjusted EPS, adjusted net income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating expense, adjusted operating margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, consolidated funded debt, and consolidated funded debt less qualified cash (all of which are non-GAAP financial measures), please refer to the reconciliations and other information included in the attached schedules.

The Company noted its expectations are based on information available at the time of this release, and are subject to changing conditions, many of which are outside the Company's control.

Income attributable to the Company's redeemable non-controlling interest in Comfort Revolution, LLC for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 represented $0.6 million and $0.3 million, respectively.

(2)

The Company is required to recognize its redeemable non-controlling interest in Comfort Revolution, LLC at the higher of 1) the accumulated earnings associated with the non-controlling interest or 2) the contractually-defined redemption value as of the balance sheet date. As of March 31, 2015, the redemption value exceeded the accumulated earnings associated with the redeemable non-controlling interest. Therefore, the Company recorded a $1.0 million redemption value adjustment, net of tax, to increase the carrying value of the redeemable non-controlling interest as of March 31, 2015. For all prior periods, the accumulated earnings exceeded the redemption value and, accordingly, the redeemable non-controlling interest was measured using its accumulated earnings. For further information, please refer to Note 16, "Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest" in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 13, 2015.

TEMPUR SEALY INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures
(in millions, except percentages and per common share amounts)

The Company provides information regarding adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted operating margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, consolidated funded debt and consolidated funded debt less qualified cash, which are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to net income and earnings per share as a measure of operating performance or total debt. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS 
A reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income and GAAP EPS to adjusted EPS is provided below. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the impact of various integration costs associated with the acquisition of Sealy Corporation ("Sealy") and its historical subsidiaries (the "Sealy Acquisition"), including the transition of manufacturing facilities in North America, and redemption value adjustments to the carrying value of the Company's redeemable non-controlling interest and additional costs incurred in connection with the proxy solicitation campaign being conducted by a shareholder of the Company for the 2015 Annual Meeting and related issues.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Gross Margin and Adjusted Operating Income and Operating Margin
A reconciliation of GAAP gross profit and gross margin to adjusted gross profit and gross margin, respectively, and GAAP operating income and operating margin to adjusted operating income and operating margin, respectively, is provided below. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the Company's gross profit, operating income and margin performance excluding the impact of various integration costs associated with the Sealy Acquisition, including the transition of manufacturing facilities in North America, and additional costs incurred in connection with the proxy solicitation campaign being conducted by a shareholder of the Company for the 2015 Annual Meeting and related issues.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation of total debt to consolidated funded debt and consolidated funded debt less qualified cash are provided below. Management believes that the use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA also provides investors with useful information with respect to the terms of the Company's senior secured credit facility and the Company's compliance with key financial covenants.

Reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income and GAAP EPS to adjusted EPS

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net income and EPS for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 to the calculation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014:

Constant Currency Information

In this press release the Company refers to, and in other press releases and other communications with investors the Company may refer to, net sales or earnings or other historical financial information on a "constant currency basis", which is a non-GAAP financial measure. These references to constant currency basis do not include operational impacts that could result from fluctuations in foreign currency rates. To provide information on a constant currency basis, the applicable financial results are adjusted based on a simple mathematical model that translates current period results in local currency using the comparable prior year period's currency conversion rate. This approach is used for countries where the functional currency is the local country currency. This information is provided so that certain financial results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of business performance.
