Kimberly-Clark Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

DALLAS, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) today reported second quarter 2016 results and confirmed its previous guidance for full-year 2016 adjusted earnings per share.

Executive Summary

  • Second quarter 2016 net sales of $4.6 billion decreased 1 percent compared to the year-ago period, as changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced sales 4 percent. Organic sales rose 3 percent, including a 7 percent volume increase in North American consumer products and 5 percent organic growth in developing and emerging markets.
  • Diluted net income per share for the second quarter was $1.56 in 2016 and a loss of $0.83 in 2015, driven by non-cash pension settlement charges. The comparison benefited from organic sales growth, cost savings, a lower effective tax rate and the prior-year pension settlement charges. The comparison was negatively impacted by unfavorable foreign currency exchange rate effects.
  • Second quarter adjusted earnings per share were $1.53 in 2016 and $1.41 in 2015. Adjusted earnings per share exclude certain items described later in this news release.
  • Cash provided by operations in the second quarter of 2016 was $860 million, up 11 percent compared to the prior year.
  • The company anticipates full-year 2016 diluted net income per share of $5.92 to $6.15 and continues to expect 2016 adjusted earnings per share of $5.95 to $6.15.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Thomas J. Falk said, "We delivered a good quarter of results in a challenging environment while we continue to execute our long-term Global Business Plan strategies. In the second quarter, we achieved a 4 percent increase in sales volumes, with benefits from targeted growth initiatives and product innovations. We also delivered $110 million of cost savings, which helped improve our profitability and increase our adjusted earnings per share. Cash flow was strong in the quarter and we continued to allocate capital in shareholder-friendly ways. Half way through the year, we are broadly on track with our plans and are confirming our bottom-line earnings guidance for 2016."

Second Quarter 2016 Operating Results

Sales of $4.6 billion in the second quarter of 2016 were down 1 percent compared to the year-ago period. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced sales 4 percent. Organic sales rose 3 percent, as volumes increased 4 percent, while product mix/other was off 1 percent.

Second quarter operating profit was $838 million in 2016 and a loss of $544 million in 2015. Results in 2015 included $1,322 million of pension settlement charges. Adjusted operating profit of $828 million in the second quarter of 2016 increased 5 percent compared to $790 million in the year-ago period. Items excluded from adjusted operating profit are described later in this release.

The year-over-year operating profit comparison included benefits from organic sales growth, $95 million in cost savings from the company's FORCE (Focused On Reducing Costs Everywhere) program and $15 million of savings from the 2014 Organization Restructuring. Input costs decreased $20 million, mostly due to lower fiber costs. Translation effects due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates lowered operating profit by $25 million and transaction effects also negatively impacted the comparison.

The second quarter effective tax rate was 28.6 percent in 2016 and 45.8 percent in 2015. The second quarter adjusted effective tax rate was 28.9 percent in 2016, down from 32.2 percent in 2015 due to resolution of certain tax matters. The company expects the full-year 2016 effective tax rate and the adjusted effective tax rate will both be in the lower half of the 30.5 to 32.5 percent target range.

Kimberly-Clark's share of net income of equity companies in the second quarter was $35 million in 2016 and $39 million in 2015. At Kimberly-Clark de Mexico, results were impacted by a weaker Mexican peso, mostly offset by benefits from organic sales growth, lower input costs and cost savings.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash provided by operations in the second quarter of 2016 was $860 million, up 11 percent versus $772 million in the year-ago period. The increase included benefits from higher cash earnings and improved working capital. Capital spending for the second quarter was $177 million in 2016 and $243 million in 2015. Second quarter 2016 share repurchases were 1.1 million shares at a cost of $150 million. The company now expects full-year share repurchases of $700 to $800 million (prior target $600 to $900 million). Total debt was $7.7 billion at June 30, 2016 and $7.8 billion at the end of 2015.

Second Quarter 2016 Business Segment Results

Personal Care Segment

Second quarter sales of $2.3 billion decreased 1 percent. Changes in currency rates reduced sales 6 percent. Volumes increased 6 percent while net selling prices were off 1 percent. Second quarter operating profit of $455 million decreased 4 percent. The comparison was impacted by unfavorable currency effects and increased marketing, research and general spending on a local currency basis, partially offset by organic sales growth and cost savings.

Sales in North America increased 4 percent. Volumes improved 8 percent. Net selling prices were down 3 percent, including increased promotion activity to support product innovations, and product mix was off 1 percent. Adult care, child care and feminine care volumes each rose approximately 10 percent and diaper volumes increased mid-single digits. Overall volumes benefited from innovations, market share improvements and promotion activity, along with category growth in adult care.

Sales in developing and emerging markets decreased 7 percent, including a 13 point drag from unfavorable currency rates. Volumes increased 6 percent and net selling prices were up 1 percent, while product mix was off 1 percent. The volume growth included gains in Brazil, China, Eastern Europe and South Africa. The higher net selling prices were driven by Latin America in response to weaker currency rates and local cost inflation, mostly offset by declines in China due to increased promotion activity.

Sales in developed markets outside North America (Australia, South Korea and Western/Central Europe) decreased 2 percent, including a 4 point negative impact from currency rates. Volumes rose 4 percent, driven by Australia, while net selling prices were off 2 percent.

Consumer Tissue Segment

Second quarter sales of $1.5 billion were essentially even with the prior year. Volumes increased 3 percent, while currency rates were unfavorable by 2 percent and product mix was off 1 percent. Second quarter operating profit of $275 million increased 6 percent. The comparison benefited from organic sales growth, cost savings and input cost deflation, partially offset by unfavorable currencies.

Sales in North America increased 4 percent. Volumes were up 6 percent, with mid-to-high single-digit increases in all product categories, led by facial tissue. Product mix was unfavorable 2 percent.

Sales in developing and emerging markets decreased 8 percent, including a 9 point negative impact from currency rates. Net selling prices rose 3 percent and product mix improved 1 percent, while volumes fell about 4 percent. The changes in net selling prices and volumes mostly occurred in Latin America.

Sales in developed markets outside North America fell 2 percent. Currency rates were unfavorable 2 percent. The combined impact of changes in net selling prices and product mix reduced sales approximately 2 percent, while volumes improved 1 percent.

K-C Professional (KCP) Segment

Second quarter sales of $0.8 billion decreased 2 percent. Changes in currency rates reduced sales 2 percent. Net selling prices rose 1 percent, while volumes were off 1 percent. Product mix/other was even year-on-year despite an approximate 1 percent impact from lower sales of nonwovens to Halyard Health, Inc. Second quarter operating profit of $150 million increased 3 percent. The comparison benefited from cost savings, mostly offset by unfavorable currency effects.

Sales in North America increased 1 percent. The combined impact of changes in net selling prices and product mix increased sales 2 percent, while volumes were off 1 percent.

Sales in developing and emerging markets decreased 4 percent, including a 10 point drag from currency rates. Net selling prices rose 5 percent and product mix improved 1 percent.

Sales in developed markets outside North America were down 2 percent. Changes in currency rates reduced sales 1 percent and the combined impact of changes in net selling prices and product mix lowered sales 1 percent.

Year-To-Date Results

For the first six months of 2016, sales of $9.1 billion decreased 3 percent compared to the year-ago period, as changes in foreign currency exchange rates reduced sales by more than 5 percent. Organic sales rose approximately 3 percent due to higher volumes.

Year-to-date operating profit was $1,642 million in 2016 versus $204 million in 2015. Results in 2015 included $1,331 million of pension settlement charges. Adjusted operating profit of $1,646 million in 2016 increased 3 percent compared to $1,605 million in 2015. Results in 2016 included $190 million of FORCE cost savings and $30 million of savings from the 2014 Organization Restructuring. In addition, input costs were $50 million lower. Translation effects due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates lowered operating profit by $75 million and transaction effects also negatively impacted results.

Through six months, diluted net income per share was $3.06 in 2016 and $0.44 in 2015. Adjusted earnings per share of $3.06 in 2016 increased 8 percent versus $2.83 in 2015.

2014 Organization Restructuring

In October 2014, Kimberly-Clark initiated a restructuring program in order to improve organization efficiency and offset the impact of stranded overhead costs resulting from the spin-off of the company's health care business. The restructuring is intended to improve underlying profitability and increase flexibility to invest in targeted growth initiatives, brand building and other capabilities critical to delivering future growth.

The restructuring is expected to be completed by the end of 2016, with total costs anticipated to be toward the high end of the previously communicated range of $130 to $160 million after tax ($190 to $230 million pre-tax). Cumulative pre-tax savings from the restructuring are expected to be toward the high end of the previously communicated range of $120 to $140 million by the end of 2017. Second quarter 2016 restructuring costs were $1 million after tax ($1 million pre-tax), bringing cumulative costs to $148 million after tax ($211 million pre-tax). Second quarter 2016 savings were $15 million, bringing cumulative savings to $100 million.

2016 Outlook and Key Planning Assumptions

The company updated the following key planning and guidance assumptions for full-year 2016:

  • Negative foreign currency translation effects on net sales and operating profit are expected to be 4 to 5 percent (prior assumption toward the low end of the 5 to 6 percent range).
  • Organic sales growth is anticipated to be at the low end of the previously assumed range of 3 to 5 percent. This reflects lower expected benefits from selling price increases, primarily due to the improved currency outlook.
  • Cost savings from the company's FORCE program are anticipated to be $350 to $400 million (previous assumption of at least $350 million).

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted earnings and earnings per share
  • Adjusted gross and operating profit
  • Adjusted other (income) and expense, net
  • Adjusted effective tax rate

These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following items for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures:

  • 2014 Organization Restructuring. See previous discussion in this news release.
  • Venezuelan operations. In the first quarter of 2015, following the Venezuelan government's elimination of the SICAD II exchange rate, the company recorded a charge for remeasuring the local currency balance sheet in Venezuela at the SIMADI floating exchange rate. In the second quarter of 2016, the company recorded a modest amount of income related to an updated assessment of the impact of deconsolidating the company's Venezuelan business at the end of 2015.
  • Pension settlement charges. In 2015, the company started to offer a lump-sum pension benefit payout option for certain plan participants. In addition, Kimberly-Clark purchased group annuity contracts that transferred to two insurance companies the pension benefit obligations for certain Kimberly-Clark retirees. As a result, the company recognized pension settlement charges in 2015, mostly in the second quarter.

The company provides these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to our GAAP financial measures. Management and the company's Board of Directors use adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share and adjusted gross and operating profit to (a) evaluate the company's historical and prospective financial performance and its performance relative to its competitors, (b) allocate resources and (c) measure the operational performance of the company's business units and their managers. Management also believes that the use of an adjusted effective tax rate provides improved insight into the tax effects of our ongoing business operations.

Additionally, the Management Development and Compensation Committee of the company's Board of Directors has used certain of the non-GAAP financial measures when setting and assessing achievement of incentive compensation goals. These goals are based, in part, on the company's adjusted earnings per share and improvement in the company's adjusted return on invested capital and adjusted operating profit return on sales determined by excluding certain of the charges that are used in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures.

This news release includes information regarding organic sales growth, which describes the impact of changes in volume, net selling prices and product mix on net sales. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates also impact the year-over-year change in net sales.
