  • Reported net income of $(164.2) million decreased from $(26.8) million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, as Coty initiated its cost savings program with $213.5 million in pre-tax restructuring and acquisition related charges, while adjusted net income of $110.3 million increased from $47.8 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period
  • Reported earnings per diluted share of $(0.22) decreased from $(0.08) for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, while adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.15 increased from $0.14 for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period

  • Reported earnings per diluted share of $(0.19) decreased from $0.53 for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, while adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.67 decreased from $1.23 for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period

Commenting on Q3 financial results and strategic outlook, Camillo Pane, Coty CEO said:

“Q3 was a better quarter. The underlying net revenue trend, excluding the contributions from ghd, Younique and one month of the Brazil Acquisition, improved sequentially to -2% at constant currency compared to a high single digit decline in the first half. This improvement was driven by good growth performance in the Luxury division, flat performance in Professional Beauty, and some improvement but continued negative performance in the Consumer Beauty division.

Equally encouraging was the performance of our acquired businesses of the Brazil acquisition, Younique and ghd. These three businesses combined showed strong performance year over year, outperforming their respective markets and are expected to materially strengthen the growth profile of the total company.

As to profits, our Q3 performance was very solid, with our adjusted operating income more than doubling in Q3 versus the prior year period, underlining the margin strength of our business.

It is clear that fiscal 2017 is a transitional year and the path to recovery will take some time and will not be a straight line. For example, we expect the constant currency net revenue trends in Q4 excluding Younique and ghd to weaken sequentially versus Q3.

In Q3, we continued to execute on the strategy I outlined last quarter to position Coty to become a challenger and leader in beauty, and drive sustained profitable growth over time. We aim to achieve these strategic objectives through four key pillars, specifically the repositioning some of the brands, making significant changes to our innovation and product development process, accelerating our end-to-end digital transformation including e-commerce, and revamping our in-store execution. I am pleased with the progress made in the quarter on the four pillars, especially on the announced partnerships with new creative agencies and the implementation of changes to our innovation process.

On the integration of the P&G Beauty Business, we are making good progress and we just exited the Transitional Services Agreement in North America on May 1, which is a significant milestone in this journey.

Regarding acquisitions, the recently announced agreement to acquire the long term exclusive license of the Burberry Beauty business should further strengthen our Luxury portfolio of brands without a material impact to our leverage ratio, highlighting our disciplined approach to valuation, and maintaining a strong balance sheet.

In sum, I am confident that the strategies and action plans we are deploying throughout the organization are setting the stage to realize the enormous potential of Coty as a global leader and challenger in beauty."


Basis of Presentation and Exceptional Items

To supplement financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, certain financial information is presented herein using the non-GAAP financial measures described in this section. The term “combined company” describes net revenues of Coty Inc. and the P&G Beauty Business giving effect to the Merger for purposes of the three and nine months ended March 31, 2017 as if it had occurred on July 1, 2015. Combined company year-over-year and combined company constant currency year-over-year do not include any adjustments related to potential profit improvements, potential cost savings or adjustments to fully conform to the accounting policies of Coty. The term “combined company constant currency” describes the combined company net revenues excluding the effect of foreign currency exchange translations. The term “adjusted” primarily excludes the impact of restructuring and business realignment costs, amortization, costs related to acquisition activities, private company share-based compensation expense, and asset impairment charges to the extent applicable. Refer to “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for additional discussion of these measures as well as the definition of free cash flow.

Net revenues are reported by segment and geographic region and are discussed below on a reported (GAAP) basis and combined company constant currency basis. Operating income is reported by segment. All changes in margin percentage are described in basis points rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Net revenues are presented on an actual, combined company and combined company constant currency. Operating income, net income, operating income margin, gross margin, effective tax rate, and earnings per diluted share (EPS (diluted)) are presented on a reported (GAAP) basis and an adjusted (non-GAAP) basis. Adjusted EPS (diluted) is a performance measure and should not be construed as a measure of liquidity. Net revenues on a combined company basis, net revenues on a combined company constant currency basis, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income on a constant currency basis, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted net income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted EPS (diluted) and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for additional discussion of these measures. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results can be found in the tables and footnotes at the end of this release.

Coty only provides guidance on a non-GAAP basis and does not provide reconciliations of such forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including adjustments that could be made for restructuring, integration and acquisition-related expenses, amortization expenses, adjustments to inventory, and other charges reflected in our reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant.


Third Quarter Fiscal 2017 Summary Operating Review

Net revenues of $2,032.1 million increased >100% as reported compared to Legacy-Coty net revenues in the prior-year period and increased 6% at constant currency compared to combined Legacy-Coty and P&G Beauty Business net revenues in the prior-year period. The 6% constant currency net revenue growth compared to the combined company revenues in the prior-year period reflected an 8% contribution from ghd, Younique, and one month of the Brazil Acquisition, and a 2% decline in the underlying business. The sequential improvement in the underlying revenue performance was driven by growth in the Luxury division, flat performance in Professional Beauty, with continued underlying challenges in the Consumer Beauty division that were partially offset by strong performance in Brazil. Q3 trends reflect the benefit of approximately 1% as a result of pre-shipments to customers in advance of the termination of transition services for North America under the TSA, which occurred on May 1.

Gross margin of 59.8% decreased from 61.2% for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, while adjusted gross margin of 63.3% increased from 61.8% for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, reflecting the addition of the higher gross margin P&G Beauty and Younique businesses.

Operating income decreased to $(192.5) million from $23.0 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, as the income contribution from the acquired businesses was more than offset by increased restructuring costs and acquisition related costs. As a percentage of net revenues, operating margin decreased to (9.5)% from 2.4%.

Adjusted operating income increased >100% to $208.3 million from $102.6 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, reflecting the profit contribution from P&G Beauty Business and Younique. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted operating margin remained flat at 10.3% at actual rates.

Reported effective tax rate was 36.9% compared to (133.3)% for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period.

Adjusted effective tax rate was 22.2% compared to 25.1% for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period.

Net income decreased to $(164.2) million from $(26.8) million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, reflecting lower operating income and higher interest expense.

Adjusted net income increased to $110.3 million from $47.8 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, primarily reflecting higher adjusted operating income partially offset by higher interest expense. As a percentage of net revenues, adjusted net income margin increased to 5.4% from 5.0% in the prior-year period.

Cash Flows

  • Net cash provided by operating activities in the quarter was $43.3 million, compared to $(71.8) million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, reflecting improved working capital for the combined company.
  • Free cash flow was $(82.5) million in the quarter compared to $(108.6) million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, reflecting higher cash from operations partially offset by increased capital expenditure.
  • On March 10, 2017, the Company paid a quarterly dividend of $0.125 per share for a total of $93.4 million.
  • Cash and cash equivalents of $767.0 million increased by $394.6 million, total debt of $7,184.8 million increased by $3,014.7 million, with net debt of $6,417.8 million up $2,620.1 million from the balance on June 30, 2016. This increase reflected the assumption of approximately $1,941.8 million of debt as part of the P&G Beauty Business transaction and financings for the acquisition of ghd and the investment in Younique.

Luxury

  • Luxury net revenues of $634.6 million increased 56% as reported compared to Legacy-Coty net revenues in the prior-year period reflecting the contribution from the acquired P&G Beauty Business. Luxury net revenues increased 2% at constant currency compared to combined Legacy-Coty and P&G Beauty Business net revenues in the prior-year period, reflecting revenue momentum in several brands including Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, and Chloe behind strong launch activity in the quarter partially offset by declines in philosophy and Marc Jacobs.

This decline reflected an improvement relative to the trends in the first half FY17, driven by continued underlying challenges in the Consumer Beauty division that were partially offset by strong performance in Brazil.
  • Adjusted operating income for Consumer Beauty increased >100% to $121.5 million from $43.2 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, resulting in an 12.3% adjusted operating income margin, an increase of 350 basis points versus Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period.

  • Adjusted operating income for Professional decreased to $0.7 million from $15.0 million for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period, resulting in a 0.2% adjusted operating income margin versus 26.6% for Legacy-Coty in the prior-year period as the seasonally weak period in the Salon market weighed on the margin profiles of both Salon Hair and ghd.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company operates on a global basis, with the majority of net revenues generated outside of the U.S. Accordingly, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect results of operations. Therefore, to supplement financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, certain financial information is presented excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange translations to provide a framework for assessing how the underlying businesses performed excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange translations (“constant currency”). Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant period-over-period, with the current period’s results calculated at the prior-year period’s rates. The Company calculates constant currency information by translating current and prior-period results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. dollars into U.S. dollars using constant foreign currency exchange rates. The constant currency calculations do not adjust for the impact of revaluing specific transactions denominated in a currency that is different to the functional currency of that entity when exchange rates fluctuate. The constant currency information presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company discloses the following constant currency financial measures: combined company net revenues and adjusted operating income.

The Company presents year-over-year comparisons of net revenues on a combined company and combined company constant currency basis. The Company believes that combined company year-over-year and combined company constant currency year-over-year better enable management and investors to analyze and compare the Company's net revenues performance from period to period, as the total business and individual divisions are being managed on a combined company basis. In the periods described in this release, combined company year-over-year and combined company constant currency year-over-year give effect to the completion of the Merger for purposes of the three months and nine months ended March 31, 2017 as if it has been completed on July 1, 2015. Combined company growth and combined company constant currency growth do not include any adjustments related to potential profit improvements, potential cost savings or adjustments to fully conform to the accounting policies of Coty. For reconciliation of combined company year-over-year, combined company constant currency year-over-year, and combined company constant currency organic sales (LFL) year-over-year, see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Reported Net Revenues to Combined Company Net Revenues.” For a reconciliation of the Company's combined company year-over-year, combined company constant currency year-over-year and combined company constant currency excluding the impact of acquisitions other than the acquisition of the P&G Beauty Business by segment and geographic region, see the tables entitled “Net Revenues and Adjusted Operating Income by Segment” and “Net Revenues by Geographic Regions."

The Company presents operating income, operating income margin, gross margin, effective tax rate, net income, net income margin, net revenues and EPS (diluted) on a non-GAAP basis and specifies that these measures are non-GAAP by using the term “adjusted”. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures better enable management and investors to analyze and compare operating performance from period to period. In calculating adjusted operating income, operating income margin, gross margin, effective tax rate, net income, net income margin and EPS (diluted), the Company excludes following items:

  • Costs related to acquisition activities: The Company excludes acquisition-related costs and acquisition accounting impacts such as those related to transaction costs and costs associated with the revaluation of acquired inventory in connection with business combinations because these costs are unique to each transaction. The nature and amount of such costs vary significantly based on the size and timing of the acquisitions and the maturities of the businesses being acquired. Also, the size, complexity and/or volume of past acquisitions, which often drives the magnitude of such expenses, may not be indicative of the size, complexity and/or volume of any future acquisitions.
  • Restructuring and other business realignment costs: The Company excludes costs associated with restructuring and business structure realignment programs to allow for comparable financial results to historical operations and forward-looking guidance. In addition, the nature and amount of such charges vary significantly based on the size and timing of the programs. By excluding the above referenced expenses from the non-GAAP financial measures, management is able to evaluate the Company’s ability to utilize existing assets and estimate their long-term value. Furthermore, management believes that the adjustment of these items supplement the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the sustainability of the Company’s operating performance.
  • Amortization expense: The Company excludes the impact of amortization of finite-lived intangible assets, as such non-cash amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Management believes that the adjustment of these items supplement the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the sustainability of the Company’s operating performance. Although the Company excludes amortization of intangible assets from the non-GAAP expenses, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation. Amortization of intangible assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Any future acquisitions may result in the amortization of additional intangible assets.
  • Asset impairment charges: The Company excludes the impact of asset impairments as such non-cash amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and/or size of acquisitions. Management believes that the adjustment of these items supplement the GAAP information with a measure that can be used to assess the sustainability of the Company’s operating performance.
  • Share-based compensation adjustment: The Company excludes the impact of the fiscal 2013 accounting modification from liability plan to equity plan accounting for the share-based compensation plans as well as other share-based compensation transactions that are not reflective of the ongoing and planned pattern of recognition for such expense. Refer to “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” contained in the respective forms filed with the SEC for a full discussion of the share-based compensation adjustment.
  • Interest and other (income) expense: The Company excludes foreign currency impacts associated with acquisition-related and debt financing related forward contracts as the nature and amount of such charges are not consistent and are significantly impacted by the timing and size of such transactions.
  • Loss on early extinguishment of debt: The Company excludes the loss on extinguishment of debt as this represents a non-cash charge, and the amount and frequency of such charges is not consistent and is significantly impacted by the timing and size of debt financing transactions.
  • Tax: This adjustment represents the impact of the tax effect of the pretax items excluded from Adjusted net income. The tax impact of the non-GAAP adjustments are based on the tax rates related to the jurisdiction in which the adjusted items are received or incurred.

The Company has provided a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of adjusted gross margin to gross margin, adjusted EPS (diluted) to EPS (diluted), and adjusted net revenues to net revenues, see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Reported to Adjusted Results for the Consolidated Statements of Operations.” For a reconciliation of adjusted operating income to operating income and adjusted operating income margin to operating income margin, see the tables entitled “Reconciliation of Reported Operating Income to Adjusted Operating Income” and "Reconciliation of Reported Operating Income to Adjusted Operating Income by Segment." For a reconciliation of adjusted effective tax rate and adjusted cash tax rate to effective tax rate, see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Reported Income Before Income Taxes and Effective Tax Rates to Adjusted Income Before Income Taxes, Effective Tax Rates and Cash Tax Rates.” For a reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted net income margin to net income, see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Reported Net Income to Adjusted Net Income.”

The Company also presents free cash flow. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures. Free cash flow excludes cash used for private company stock option exercises and cash used for acquisitions. Management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for debt repayment and other strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations, and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions. For a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow, see the table entitled “Reconciliation of Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow.”

These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
