Avon Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2013 Results

Fourth-Quarter Revenue Down 10%; Down 4% in Constant Dollars(1)

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE: AVP) today reported fourth-quarter and full-year 2013 results. "Looking back at 2013, we made progress addressing tough legacy issues, identifying and beginning to resolve operational challenges, and rebuilding our management team.  Although the second half of the year was impacted by both execution and macro-economic factors, I'm pleased that we are making headway toward our financial goals and Avon's return to profitable growth," said Sheri McCoy, Chief Executive Officer, Avon Products, Inc. "While much work remains to be done, we continue to make progress toward building a better, simpler and more stable business."

Full-Year 2013 Results (compared with full-year 2012)

Total revenue of $10.0 billion decreased 6%, or 1% in constant dollars. Total units decreased 5% and price/mix increased 4%. Active Representatives² were down 2% while average order increased 1%.

Total Beauty sales declined 7%, or 2% in constant dollars. Fashion & Home sales declined 4%, or were up 1% in constant dollars.

Operating profit was $427 million and operating margin was 4.3%, down 70 basis points from 2012. Adjusted operating profit was $791 million, and Adjusted operating margin was 7.9%, up 130 basis points from 2012.

Full-year effective tax rate from continuing operations was 100.6%, compared with 78.2% in 2012. Full-year Adjusted effective tax rate was 30.3%, compared with 35.0% in 2012.

Full-year net loss from continuing operations was $1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with net income from continuing operations of $93 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in 2012. Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $451 million, or $1.02 per share, compared with $373 million, or $0.84 per share, in 2012.

Cash flow from operations was $540 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, $4 million lower than in the same period in 2012. Cash from operations was unfavorably impacted by the make-whole premiums of approximately $90 million paid in connection with the prepayment of the Company's private notes and 2014 notes, higher contribution to the U.K. pension plan, as well as higher payments for employee incentive compensation. Partially offsetting these unfavorable impacts was improved Adjusted operating profit. The overall net cash used in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $102 million, compared with net cash used of $36 million for the same period in 2012. The increase is primarily due to the paydown of the Company's debt, which was partially offset by lower dividends paid.  

Avon's net debt (total debt less cash) as of December 31, 2013 was $1.6 billion, down $376 million from December 31, 2012. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, the Company reduced the overall debt balance by $475 million.

Adjustments to Full-Year 2013 GAAP Results to Arrive at Adjusted Results

During 2013, the following items had a significant impact on the financial results:

  • The Company recorded non-cash impairment charges within operating profit of $159 million pre-tax. This included a charge of $117 million pre-tax related to the Service Model Transformation ("SMT") project, as a result of the Company's decision to halt further roll-out of the SMT project beyond the pilot market of Canada in the fourth quarter. In addition, during the third quarter, the Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $42 million pre-tax, and a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to the China business of $9 million. These items had a negative impact of $0.28 per diluted share.
  • The Company recorded a loss on extinguishment of debt in the first and second quarters of approximately $86 million pre-tax, or $0.12 per diluted share, associated with the prepayment of the $535 million outstanding principal of the Company's private notes and the $500 million outstanding principal of the Company's 2014 notes, including make-whole premiums, and the repayment of $380 million of the outstanding term loan principal.
  • The Company recorded an aggregate accrual related to the previously disclosed government Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA") investigations of $89 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, within operating profit, of which $12 million was recorded in the second quarter. Based on the status of the Company's current settlement negotiations with the DOJ and the staff of the SEC, including the level of monetary penalties being discussed, an additional $77 million was recorded in the fourth quarter, and the Company estimates the aggregate amount of any potential settlements with the government could exceed this accrual by up to approximately $43 million. There can be no assurance that the Company's efforts to reach settlements with the government will be successful or, if they are, what the timing or terms of such settlements will be.
  • The Company recorded costs to implement ("CTI") restructuring within operating profit of approximately $66 million pre-tax, or $0.09 per diluted share.
  • As a result of the 32% devaluation of Venezuelan currency, during the first quarter, the Company recorded a one-time charge of $34 million in other expense, net, and $17 million in income taxes, primarily reflecting the write-down of monetary net assets and deferred tax benefits, respectively. In addition, as a result of using the U.S. historic dollar cost basis of non-monetary assets, such as inventory, full-year 2013 operating profit was negatively impacted by approximately $50 million. During the fourth quarter, the Company also recorded a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to Venezuela of $42 million. These items had a negative impact of $0.32 per diluted share.

Fourth-Quarter 2013 (compared with fourth-quarter 2012)

For the fourth quarter of 2013, total revenue of $2.7 billion decreased 10%, or 4% in constant dollars. Total units decreased 10% and price/mix was up 6% during the quarter. Active Representatives were down 5% while average order increased 1%.

Beauty sales declined 11%, or 4% in constant dollars. Fashion & Home sales declined 8%, or 2% in constant dollars.

Fourth-quarter 2013 gross margin was 61.0%. Gross margin included a $5 million charge associated with highly inflationary accounting for the 32% devaluation of Venezuelan currency that occurred in the first quarter of 2013. Adjusted gross margin was 61.2%, 140 basis points higher than the prior-year quarter, primarily driven by the favorable net impact of mix and pricing, largely due to inflationary pricing in Latin America. This benefit was partially offset by unfavorable foreign exchange.

Operating loss was $17 million and operating margin was (0.6)% in the quarter. Operating loss was unfavorably impacted by a non-cash impairment charge related to the SMT project, an accrual related to the government FCPA investigations and CTI restructuring. Adjusted operating profit was $219 million and Adjusted operating margin was 8.2%, down 100 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2012. The decline in Adjusted operating margin was driven by the impact of the revenue decline with respect to fixed expenses. Higher transportation costs, bad debt expense and net brochure costs, primarily in Latin America, were also factors. Additionally, unfavorable foreign exchange negatively impacted Adjusted operating margin. These items were partially offset by the improvement in gross margin.

Fourth-quarter 2013's effective tax rate from continuing operations was (55.5)%, compared with 117.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. The Adjusted effective tax rate was 21.6% in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with 37.1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. The lower rate is due to the Company's geographic mix of earnings for the year and the lower cost to repatriate foreign earnings.

Fourth-quarter 2013's net loss from continuing operations was $68 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $36 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Fourth-quarter 2013's Adjusted net income from continuing operations was $151 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared with $154 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Adjustments to Fourth-Quarter GAAP Results to Arrive at Adjusted Results

During the fourth quarter of 2013, the following items had a significant impact on the financial results:


  • The Company recorded a non-cash impairment charge within operating profit of $117 million pre-tax, or $0.17 per diluted share, related to the SMT project.
  • The Company recorded an additional accrual related to the previously disclosed government FCPA investigations within operating profit of $77 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. As a result, the aggregate accrual for these matters at December 31, 2013 was $89 million.
  • The Company recorded CTI restructuring within operating profit of approximately $37 million pre-tax, or $0.05 per diluted share, comprised primarily of employee-related costs associated with the elimination of approximately 650 positions.
  • As a result of the 32% devaluation of Venezuelan currency, and using the U.S. historic dollar cost basis of non-monetary assets, such as inventory, fourth-quarter 2013 operating profit was negatively impacted by approximately $5 million. In addition, the Company recorded a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to Venezuela of $42 million. These items had a negative impact of $0.11 per diluted share.

Fourth-Quarter 2013 Discussion

  • Fourth-quarter constant-dollar revenue growth was primarily due to higher average order, which was partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives. Higher average order benefited from pricing, including inflationary impacts, primarily in Argentina and Venezuela.
  • Brazil revenue was down 3%, or up 6% in constant dollars, primarily due to higher average order, largely due to benefits from continued strength in Fashion & Home and pricing.
  • Mexico revenue was down 15% in both reported and constant dollars, primarily driven by a decrease in Active Representatives and lower average order. The business was negatively impacted by executional challenges, coupled with the weaker economy.
  • Venezuela revenue was down 12%, or up 29% in constant dollars, due to higher average order, partially offset by a decrease in Active Representatives. Average order benefited from the inflationary impact on pricing, which was partially offset by a decrease in units sold. The decline in Active Representatives was partially due to continued economic and political instability.
  • The decline in Adjusted operating margin was primarily due to higher Representative and sales leader investments, net brochure costs and bad debt expense. In addition, foreign exchange unfavorably impacted Adjusted operating margin. These impacts were partially offset by higher gross margin, primarily due to the favorable net impact of mix and pricing.

Fourth-Quarter 2013 Discussion

  • Fourth-quarter constant-dollar revenue decline was due to both lower average order and a decrease in Active Representatives. Units declined due to merchandising and reduced discounting in several markets.
  • Russia revenue was down 7%, or 3% in constant dollars, due to a decrease in Active Representatives and lower average order.
  • U.K. revenue was down 5% in both reported and constant dollars, primarily due to a decrease in Active Representatives.
  • Turkey revenue was down 9%, or up 3% in constant dollars, primarily due to higher average order.
  • South Africa revenue was down 12%, or up 2% in constant dollars, primarily due to an increase in Active Representatives, which was partially offset by lower average order.
  • Adjusted operating margin increased primarily due to higher gross margin, which benefited from supply chain actions to reduce material and overhead costs.

Fourth-Quarter 2013 Discussion

  • Fourth-quarter constant-dollar revenue decline was due to a decrease in Active Representatives and lower average order. The business continues to be impacted by executional challenges.
  • North America Beauty sales declined 25%, driven primarily by skincare and personal care, on both a reported and constant-dollar basis. Fashion & Home sales declined 16%, or 15% in constant dollars.
  • The decline in Adjusted operating margin was primarily due to the impact of the revenue decline with respect to fixed expenses. In addition, increased transportation cost per unit as a result of lower volume also contributed to the operating margin decline. These items were partially offset by lower net brochure costs and bad debt expense, as well as benefits resulting from the Company's cost-savings initiatives.

Fourth-Quarter 2013 Discussion

  • Fourth-quarter constant-dollar revenue decline was driven by the unfavorable results of China and a decrease in Active Representatives in the other Asia Pacific markets. The region's revenue was also negatively impacted by approximately one point as a result of the Company's decision to exit the South Korea and Vietnam markets.
  • Revenue in the Philippines was down 9%, or 4% in constant dollars, which includes approximately two points due to the significant typhoon. The revenue decline was primarily due to a decrease in Active Representatives, partially offset by higher average order.
  • Revenue in China was down 48%, or 50% in constant dollars, primarily due to declines in unit sales. Revenue was negatively impacted by a decline in the number of beauty boutiques as well as the Company's continued actions intended to reduce inventory levels held by beauty boutiques.
  • The decline in Adjusted operating margin was primarily due to lower gross margin, as well as the impact of the revenue decline with respect to fixed expenses. The gross margin decline was primarily due to the unfavorable net impact of mix and pricing, higher obsolescence costs and the impact of lower unit volume. These were partially offset by benefits resulting from the Company's cost-savings initiatives.

Footnotes

1 "Adjusted" items refer to financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP that have been adjusted to exclude certain costs as described below, under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."  We also refer to Adjusted financial measures as Constant $ items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures as described below under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

2 In the first quarter of 2013, we renamed our "Growth in Active Representatives" performance metric as "Change in Active Representatives." In addition, we revised the definition of this metric to exclude China. As previously disclosed, our business in China is predominantly retail, and as a result, we do not believe including China within the Change in Active Representatives calculation provides for a relevant indicator of underlying business trends. There were no changes to the underlying calculation other than the exclusion of China.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), we disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: revenue, operating profit, Adjusted operating profit, operating margin and Adjusted operating margin. We also refer to these adjusted financial measures as Constant $ items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, we calculate current-year results and prior-year results at a constant exchange rate. Currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant-currency growth rates.

We also present gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, total and net global expenses, operating profit, operating margin, income from continuing operations, earnings per share from continuing operations and effective tax rate on a Non-GAAP basis. The discussion of our segments presents operating profit and operating margin on a Non-GAAP basis. We refer to these Non-GAAP financial measures as "Adjusted." We have provided a quantitative reconciliation of the difference between the Non-GAAP financial measures and the financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses the Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its operating performance and believes that it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of, on a period-to-period basis, the impacts of 1) costs to implement ("CTI") restructuring initiatives, 2) costs and charges related to Venezuela being designated as a highly inflationary economy and the subsequent devaluation of its currency in February 2013, a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to Venezuela and the benefit related to the release of a provision associated with the excess cost of acquiring U.S. dollars in Venezuela ("Venezuelan special items"), 3) the total $89 million accrual for the potential settlements related to the FCPA investigations ("FCPA accrual"), 4) the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to the China business, as well as the capitalized software impairment charge related to the SMT project ("Asset impairment and other charges"), 5) costs and charges related to the extinguishment of debt ("Loss on extinguishment of debt") and 6) the additional provision for income taxes as we are no longer asserting that the undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries are indefinitely reinvested ("Special tax items"). The Company believes investors find the Non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the Company's financial results in any particular period.

The Venezuelan special items include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in 2013, caused by the devaluation of Venezuelan currency on monetary assets and liabilities, such as cash, receivables and payables; deferred tax assets and liabilities; and non-monetary assets, such as inventory and prepaid expenses. For non-monetary assets, the Venezuelan special items include the earnings impact caused by the difference between the historical cost of the assets at the previous official exchange rate of 4.30 and the revised official exchange rate of 6.30. The Venezuelan special items also include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income caused by a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to Venezuela recorded in the fourth quarter of 2013, as well as the release of a provision in the fourth quarter of 2012 associated with the excess cost of acquiring U.S. dollars in Venezuela at the regulated market rate as compared with the official exchange rate.

The Asset impairment and other charges include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income caused by the goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets related to the China business in the third quarter of 2013, and the goodwill impairment charge related to the China business in the third quarter of 2012. The Asset impairment and other charges also include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income caused by the capitalized software impairment charge related to the SMT project in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The Loss on extinguishment of debt includes the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in the first quarter of 2013, caused by the make-whole premium and the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with the prepayment of the Company's private notes, as well as the write-off of debt issuance costs associated with the early repayment of $380 million of the outstanding principal amount of the term loan agreement. The Loss on extinguishment of debt also includes the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in the second quarter of 2013, caused by the make-whole premium and the write-off of debt issuance costs and discounts, partially offset by a deferred gain associated with the January 2013 interest rate swap agreement termination, associated with the prepayment of the Company's 2014 notes.

The Special tax items include the impact on the Consolidated Statements of Income in 2012,  caused by an additional provision for income taxes as we no longer asserted that the undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries are indefinitely reinvested. During the fourth quarter of 2012, we determined that the Company may repatriate offshore cash to meet certain domestic funding needs.

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.

In the first quarter of 2013, we revised the definition of Active Representatives to exclude China. As previously disclosed, our business in China is predominantly retail, and as a result, we do not believe including China within the Change in Active Representatives calculation provides for a relevant indicator of underlying business trends. There were no changes to the underlying calculation other than the exclusion of China.
