THIRD QUARTER 2015 FINANCIAL SUMMARY

  • Total net sales increased 6.4% to $880.0 million from $827.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis(1), total net sales increased 10.6%, with growth in both the North America and International business segments.
  • Gross margin under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") was 40.9% as compared to 38.5% in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted gross margin(1) was 41.3% as compared to 38.8% in the third quarter of 2014.
  • Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA")(1) increased 14.3% to $121.4 million as compared to $106.2 million for the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 19.1% to $142.3 million as compared to $119.5 million for the third quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP operating income was $110.9 million as compared to $87.1 million in the third quarter of 2014. Operating income included $5.5 million of integration costs, $5.2 million of additional costs related to executive management transition and related retention compensation and $2.4 million of restructuring costs. Operating income in the third quarter of 2014 included $10.9 million of integration and financing costs. Adjusted operating income(1) was $124.0 million, or 14.1% of net sales, as compared to $98.0 million, or 11.8% of net sales in the third quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP Earnings per diluted share ("EPS") increased to $0.64 as compared to $0.60 in the third quarter of 2014. Adjusted EPS(1) increased 26.1% to $1.11 as compared to adjusted EPS of $0.88 in the third quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, adjusted EPS increased 36.4%.
  • The Company ended the third quarter of 2015 with consolidated funded debt less qualified cash(1) of $1.4 billion.  The ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to EBITDA, calculated in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility,(1) was 3.53 times. In addition, leverage based on the ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to Adjusted EBITDA(1) was 3.30 times.

Tempur Sealy International, Inc. Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson commented, "The Company's iconic brands and products continue to perform well throughout the world resulting in solid revenue growth and EBITDA margin expansion. The North American operation was a highlight in the quarter driven by Tempur Flex, Tempur Breeze and Sealy Posturepedic. The International operations dealt with unfavorable foreign exchange headwinds but still managed to deliver stable operating results. The Company continues to demonstrate the free cash flow attributes of the business, resulting in consistent deleveraging of the balance sheet and enhancing the Company's future capital structuring alternatives."

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 8.2% to $741.2 million from $685.3 million in the third quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, North America net sales increased 9.8%. GAAP gross margin was 38.8% as compared to 35.6% in the third quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin was 16.0% as compared to 12.6% in the third quarter of 2014.

North America adjusted operating margin(1) was 16.4% as compared to 13.8% in the third quarter of 2014. The improvement in North America adjusted operating margin during the third quarter of 2015 was the result of an improvement in adjusted gross margin(1) of 310 basis points, offset partially by higher advertising expenses as compared to the same period in 2014.

International net sales decreased 2.3% to $138.8 million from $142.1 million in the third quarter of 2014. On a constant currency basis, International net sales increased 14.1%. GAAP gross margin was 51.8% as compared to 52.5% in the third quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin was 16.6% as compared to 18.4% in the third quarter 2014.

International adjusted operating margin(1) was 18.5% as compared to 18.9% in the third quarter of 2014. The decline in International adjusted operating margin was primarily the result of incremental costs incurred in connection with distributing Sealy products in international markets. International adjusted gross margin(1) was 52.7% as compared to 52.6% in the third quarter of 2014.

Corporate GAAP operating expense increased 20.1% to $30.5 million from $25.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. During the third quarter of 2015, the Company incurred $5.2 million of additional costs related to executive management transition and related retention compensation. Corporate incurred $4.8 million of these costs and $0.4 million were included in the North America and International results.

Corporate adjusted operating expense(1) decreased 2.1% to $23.1 million from $23.6 million in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in Corporate adjusted operating expense was primarily related to a decrease in legal and professional fees.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2015, the Company reported $71.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.5 billion in total debt, as compared to $62.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.6 billion in total debt as of December 31, 2014. During the third quarter, the Company completed a $450.0 million senior notes offering, and used the proceeds to reduce term loan debt outstanding under the Company's senior secured credit facility. In addition, the Company made a $50.0 million voluntary prepayment on the senior secured credit facility in the third quarter of 2015. These actions improved the Company's capital structure by extending debt maturities, increasing capacity under the senior secured credit facility and shifting more debt to fixed rate debt.

Financial Guidance

Thompson further commented, "The strength of the Company's operations was able to fully absorb unfavorable foreign exchange in the quarter. The Company's new guidance reflects the solid third quarter performance, an increase in interest expense related to the recently completed debt offering and a slight increase to share count."

For the full year 2015, the Company currently expects:

  • Net sales to range from $3.150 billion to $3.175 billion
  • Adjusted EPS to range from $3.10 to $3.20 per diluted share

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. The Company noted its adjusted EPS guidance does not include integration costs related to the Sealy acquisition, redemption value adjustments on the Company's redeemable non-controlling interest, additional costs related to the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting and related issues, executive management transition and related retention compensation, certain restructuring costs, interest expense related to the accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs associated with voluntary prepayments of the Company's term loans, legal fees and the settlement the Company will pay to the German Federal Cartel Office ("FCO") to fully resolve the FCO's antitrust investigation, and other non-recurring items, including income from the partial settlement of a legal dispute.

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

The Company provides information regarding adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating income (expense), adjusted operating margin, EBITDA, EBITDA in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility, 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, redemption value adjustments to the carrying value of the Company's redeemable non-controlling interest, the executive management transition and related retention compensation, certain restructuring costs, interest expense and financing costs related to the accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs associated with voluntary prepayments of the Company's term loans, legal fees and the settlement the Company will pay to the German Federal Cartel Office ("FCO") to fully resolve the FCO's antitrust investigation, and other non-recurring items, including income from the partial settlement of a legal dispute.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Gross Margin and Adjusted Operating Income (Expense) and Operating Margin 
A reconciliation of GAAP gross profit and gross margin to adjusted gross profit and gross margin, respectively, and GAAP operating income (expense) and operating margin to adjusted operating income (expense) 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, the executive management transition and related retention compensation, certain restructuring costs and legal fees associated with the settlement the Company will pay to the FCO to fully resolve the FCO's antitrust investigation.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA 
A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are provided below. Management believes that the use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA also provides investors with useful information with respect to the Company's performance excluding the impact of various integration costs associated with the Sealy Acquisition, including the transition of manufacturing facilities in North America, additional costs related to the Company's 2015 Annual Meeting and related issues, the executive management transition and related retention compensation, certain restructuring costs, interest expense and financing costs related to the accelerated amortization of deferred financing costs associated with voluntary prepayments of the Company's term loans, legal fees and the settlement the Company will pay to the FCO to fully resolve the FCO's antitrust investigation, and other non-recurring items, including income from the partial settlement of a legal dispute.

EBITDA in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility, Funded debt and Funded debt less qualified cash 
A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net income to EBITDA in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility (which the Company may refer to as "EBITDA for covenant compliance purposes") and a reconciliation of total debt to consolidated funded debt and consolidated funded debt less qualified cash are provided below. In addition, a calculation of the ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to EBITDA determined in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility is provided below. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP measures 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.

In addition to providing the ratio calculation in accordance with the Company's senior secured credit facility as described above, the Company also provides below a calculation of the ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to Adjusted EBITDA. Although not relevant for purposes of assessing compliance with the Company's current financial covenants, the Company provides this as supplemental information to investors to provide more general information about the Company's progress in reducing its leverage.

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 September 30, 2015 and 2014 to the calculation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS for the three months ended September 30, 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.
