Oct 26, 2011, 07:00 ET from Tupperware Brands Corporation

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Third Quarter Sales up 15% in U.S. dollars and 10% in local currency+.

  • Third Quarter GAAP diluted E.P.S. 17 cents, including $36.1 million non-cash impairment charges. Excluding certain items impacting comparability*, diluted E.P.S. 83 cents, up 30% over last year.

  • Third Quarter 2011 share repurchases of $195.7 million / 3.2 million shares.

Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE: TUP) today reported third quarter 2011 sales and profit, with a sales increase in dollars of 15% and 10% in local currency(+).

GAAP net income for the quarter of $10.5 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with 2010 third quarter GAAP net income and EPS of $39.9 million and $0.62 per share.  The 2011 amounts included $36.1 million, or 60 cents per share, for non-cash impairment charges.  Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.83 in the quarter was 19 cents, or 30%, better than 2010, including a positive foreign currency impact of 4 cents.

The Company repurchased in the third quarter 3.2 million of its shares for $195.7 million, or $61.98 per share.  This included $100 million of opportunistic repurchases that were above and beyond repurchases planned going into the quarter.  Also, the Company's Board approved today a doubling of its repurchase authorization to $1.2 billion.  Under the authorization, which continues to run until February 1, 2015, the Company has repurchased, since 2007 through the end of fiscal September 2011, 10.6 million shares for $538 million.

Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to have reported strong local currency sales growth for the quarter, which was one percentage point above the high end of the guidance we gave in July.  Our emerging markets continued to achieve excellent growth rates overall.  They comprised 63% of sales in the quarter and delivered a 19% sales increase in local currency, while the established markets were down 3% in local currency.  On diluted earnings per share without items, we came in only 1 cent below the high end of our July guidance range, even with a 4 cent headwind, versus our guidance, from foreign exchange.  Once again, we have set a new record by ending the third quarter with 2.8 million sales force members, which gives us firm footing to continue to move forward and grow.  The continued confidence that we have in the future of our business is reflected in our Board's decision to double our share repurchase authorization.  Overall, we are pleased with the growth we have achieved thus far, and we are excited about the growth yet to come."

The Company plans to give more complete 2012 sales, earnings and cash flow guidance with its fourth quarter 2011 earnings release, but notes that if current foreign exchange rates were to stay the same for the remainder of 2011 and throughout 2012, there would be a negative impact on the 2012 versus 2011 GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share comparison of 26 cents.  Furthermore, based on the Company's full year 2011 outlook for share repurchases, there would be a 25 cent benefit from less diluted shares outstanding for full year 2012 versus 2011, before considering share repurchases made in 2012.

* See Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation Schedules.

** Sales force statistics as collected by the Company and, in some cases, provided by distributors and sales force. The Company classifies Established Market Units as those operating in Western Europe, including Scandinavia, the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan and its remaining units as Emerging Market Units.  Active Sales Force is defined as the average number of orders received per ordering cycle in each unit over the course of the quarter, and Total Sales Force is defined as the number of sales force members of the units as of the end of the quarter.

+ Local currency changes are measured by comparing current year results with those of the prior year translated at the current year's foreign exchange rates.

Third Quarter Earnings Conference Call

Tupperware Brands will conduct a conference call today, Wednesday, October 26, 2011, at 8:30 am Eastern time.  The conference call will be webcast and accessible, along with a copy of this news release, on www.tupperwarebrands.com.

Tupperware Brands Corporation is a portfolio of global direct selling companies, selling innovative, premium products across multiple brands and categories through an independent sales force of 2.8 million.  Product brands and categories include design-centric preparation, storage and serving solutions for the kitchen and home through the Tupperware brand and beauty and personal care products for consumers through the Armand Dupree, Avroy Shlain, BeautiControl, Fuller Cosmetics, NaturCare, Nutrimetics, and Nuvo brands.

The Company's stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: TUP). Statements contained in this release, which are not historical fact and use predictive words such as "outlook", "expects" or "target" are forward-looking statements.  These statements involve risks and uncertainties which include recruiting and activity of the Company's independent sales forces, the success of new product introductions and promotional programs, governmental approvals of materials for use in food containers and beauty and personal care products, the success of buyers in obtaining financing or attracting tenants for commercial and residential developments, the effects of economic and political conditions generally and foreign exchange risk in particular and other risks detailed in the Company's most recent periodic report as filed in accordance with the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The Company does not intend to update forward-looking information other than through its quarterly earnings releases unless it expects diluted earnings per share for the current quarter, excluding adjustment items and the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, to be significantly below its previous guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has utilized non-GAAP financial measures in this release, which are provided to assist readers' understanding of the Company's results of operations. The adjustment items, at times, materially impact the comparability of the Company's results of operations. The adjusted information is intended to be indicative of Tupperware Brands' primary operations, and to assist readers in evaluating performance and analyzing trends across periods.

The non-GAAP financial measures exclude gains from the sale of property, plant and equipment and insurance settlements, and re-engineering costs.  Further, while the Company is engaged in a multi-year program to sell land adjacent to its Orlando, Florida headquarters, and also disposes of other excess land and facilities periodically, these activities are not part of the Company's primary business operations.  Additionally, gains recognized in any given period are not indicative of gains which may be recognized in any particular future period.   For this reason, these gains are excluded as indicated.  Further, the Company excludes significant charges related to casualty losses caused by significant weather events, fires or similar circumstances. It also excludes any related gains resulting from the settlement of associated insurance claims. While these types of events can and do recur periodically, they are excluded from indicated financial information due to their distinction from ongoing business operations, inherent volatility and impact on the comparability of earnings across quarters.  Also, the Company periodically records exit costs accounted for using the applicable accounting guidance for exit or disposal cost obligations and other amounts related to rationalizing manufacturing and other restructuring activities, and believes these amounts are similarly volatile and impact the comparability of earnings across quarters.  Therefore, they are also excluded from indicated financial information to provide what the Company believes represents a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.  The Company has also excluded in its non-GAAP measures the expense incurred upon the impairment of its floating to fixed interest swaps and the write off of deferred debt costs in connection with the notes it sold and the new revolving credit agreement that it entered into in June 2011.  The Company believes that excluding from indicated financial information costs incurred in connection with a significant change in its capital structure that is of a nature that would be expected to recur infrequently, also provides a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.

The Company has also elected to present financial measures excluding the impact of amortizing the purchase accounting carrying value of certain definite-lived intangible assets, primarily the value of independent sales forces recorded in connection with the Company's December 2005 acquisition of the direct selling businesses of Sara Lee Corporation.  The amortization expense related to these assets will continue for several years; however, based on the Company's current estimates, this amortization will decline as the years progress.  Similarly, in connection with its evaluation of the carrying value of acquired intangible assets and goodwill, the Company has periodically recognized impairment charges.  The Company believes that these types of non-cash charges will not be representative in any single year of amounts recorded in prior years or expected to be recorded in future years.  Therefore, they are excluded from indicated financial information to also provide a useful measure for analysis and predictive purposes.

As exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons, the Company believes the presentation of results on a local currency basis, in addition to reported results, helps improve readers' ability to understand the Company's operating results and evaluate performance in comparison with prior periods. The Company presents local currency information that compares results between periods as if current period exchange rates had been the exchange rates in the prior period. The Company uses results on a local currency basis as one measure to evaluate performance. The Company generally refers to such amounts as calculated on a local currency basis, as restated or excluding the impact of foreign currency. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with GAAP. Results on a local currency basis may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not measures of performance presented in accordance with GAAP.

In information included with this release, the Company has referred to Adjusted EBITDA and a Debt/Adjusted EBITDA ratio which are non-GAAP financial measures used in the Company's credit agreement. The Company uses these measures in its capital allocation decision process and in discussions with investors, analysts and other interested parties and therefore believes it is useful to disclose this amount and ratio. The Company's calculation of these measures is in accordance with its credit agreement, and is set forth in the reconciliation from GAAP amounts in an attachment to this release; however, the reader is cautioned that other companies define these measures in different ways and consequently they will likely not be comparable with similarly labeled amounts disclosed by others.
