1Q'19 Key Points:

  • Net sales for the quarter were $3.3 billion, up 4% versus prior year, as positive volume (+3%), acquisitions (+3%) and price (+2%) more than offset currency (-4%).  
  • Gross margin rate for the quarter was 33.2%, down approximately 300 basis points versus prior year as volume leverage, productivity and price were more than offset by carryover external headwinds from prior year, including commodity inflation, foreign exchange and tariffs.
  • SG&A expenses were 23.4% of sales.  Excluding charges, SG&A expenses were 22.7% of sales compared to 24.0% in 1Q'18, reflecting tight cost control, including the savings from the 4Q'18 cost reduction program.
  • Restructuring costs for the quarter were $8.7 million.  Excluding charges, restructuring costs for the quarter were $1.6 million compared to $21.8 million in 1Q'18.    
  • Other, net totaled $65.4 million for the quarter.  Excluding charges, Other, net totaled $49.3 million compared to $52.1 million in 1Q'18.
  • The tax rate was 12.7%.  Excluding charges, the tax rate was 15.0% versus 23.0% in 1Q'18 primarily due to the settlement of a tax audit during the quarter.
  • Average diluted shares outstanding for the quarter were 149.9 million versus 153.9 million a year ago, reflecting $500 million of share repurchases executed during 2018.
  • Working capital turns for the quarter were 5.8, down 0.4 turns from prior year as a result of carrying higher levels of inventory associated with the Craftsman and other brand rollouts.    

Stanley Black & Decker's President and CEO, James M. Loree, commented, "We had a strong start to 2019, with above-market organic growth of 5%, led by 7% organic growth from Tools & Storage, and the benefit of our cost actions helping to offset carryover from the 2018 wave of significant external headwinds.  We closed our minority investment in MTD and the acquisition of the IES Attachments businesses, Paladin and Pengo, during the quarter. The teams are now focused on capturing the value from those transactions.

"We continue to have a series of strong growth catalysts that position us well to deliver share gains, including the ongoing Craftsman brand rollout, Lenox and Irwin revenue synergies, FlexVolt, e-commerce, emerging markets and new innovations.  The organization is also focused on margin expansion as we realize the benefits from our $250 million cost reduction program and recent pricing actions.  We are also in the process of defining and implementing a significant multi-year margin expansion initiative which we will dimension and provide details on at our upcoming Investor Day in May. 

"Our seasoned management team is focused on leveraging our SFS 2.0 operating system and acting with the agility required to achieve success in 2019 and beyond.  We remain committed to advancing progress against our vision to strive to become known as one of the world's leading innovators, while continuing to deliver top-quartile financial performance and elevate our commitment to social responsibility."

  • Tools & Storage net sales increased 3% versus 1Q'18 as volume (+5%) and price (+2%) were partially offset by currency (-4%).  All regions contributed to the 7% organic growth for the quarter with North America +11%, Europe +3% and emerging markets +1%.  North America organic growth was driven by the rollout of the Craftsman brand, continued benefits from new product innovation and price realization.  Europe delivered above-market growth supported by new product launches and continued successful commercial actions.  Emerging markets growth was due to price, new products and e-commerce expansion, which was largely offset by continued market contractions in Argentina and Turkey.  Additionally, the Company recently settled its lawsuit with Sears.  Overall Tools & Storage segment profit rate, excluding charges, was 12.1%, down from the 1Q'18 rate of 14.3%, as the benefits from volume leverage, pricing and cost control were more than offset by the impact from currency, commodity inflation and tariffs.
  • Industrial net sales increased 10% versus 1Q'18 as the Nelson and IES Attachments acquisitions (+16%) were partially offset by currency (-3%) and volume (-3%).  Engineered Fastening organic revenues were down 4% as automotive light vehicle production declines and lower system shipments more than offset continued fastener penetration gains.  Infrastructure organic revenues were up 5% primarily due to stronger North American pipeline project activity in Oil & Gas, partially offset by lower Hydraulic Tools volumes.  Overall Industrial segment profit rate, excluding charges, was 13.9%, down from the 1Q'18 rate of 16.4%, as productivity gains and cost control were more than offset by the impact from lower Engineered Fastening automotive volume, commodity inflation, and the modestly dilutive impact from acquisitions.
  • Security net sales declined 1% versus 1Q'18 as bolt-on commercial electronic security acquisitions (+2%) and price (+1%) were more than offset by currency (-4%).  North America organic growth was up 2% as higher volumes within automatic doors and healthcare were partially offset by lower installations in commercial electronic security.  Europe was down 1% organically as growth within France was offset by adverse market conditions in Sweden and UK.  The overall Security segment profit rate, excluding charges, was 10.3%, which was up 70 basis points versus the prior year, as a focus on cost containment was partially offset by commercial investments to support the business transformation in commercial electronic security. 

Updated 2019 Outlook

Management is raising its 2019 EPS outlook to $7.50 - $7.70 from $7.45 - $7.65 on a GAAP basis, and to $8.50 - $8.70 from $8.45 - $8.65 on an adjusted basis. The Company is also reiterating its free cash flow conversion estimate of approximately 85% - 90%.

The following reflects the key assumption changes to the Company's prior EPS outlook:

  • Incremental organic growth and cost control realized in the first quarter more than offset an incremental $20 million headwind from foreign currency
  • The IES Attachments acquisition and the Sargent & Greenleaf divestiture that was signed in the first quarter net to a relatively neutral impact to EPS

Donald Allan Jr., Executive Vice President and CFO, commented, "We were pleased that Security continued to successfully execute its business transformation in the first quarter, delivering operating margin rate and dollar expansion through cost control and an intense focus on minimizing recurring revenue attrition.  At the same time, focused investments in commercial resources and new customer solutions in electronic security are expected to positively impact organic growth as the year progresses. 

"Stanley Black & Decker's updated outlook for 2019 includes above-market organic growth of 4%, adjusted earnings per share growth of 4% - 7% versus prior year and strong free cash flow generation, all while offsetting $340 million in external headwinds, mostly from 2018 carryover.  Our solid start to the year reflects that we are successfully leveraging our continued strong organic growth, pricing actions and the $250 million cost reduction program. These factors along with the beginning impacts of certain margin enhancement initiatives will result in operating margin and rate expansion in 2019. 

"The organization remains focused on strong day-to-day execution and operational excellence in accordance with our SFS 2.0 operating system.  We are confident that we have positioned the Company to deliver sustained above-market organic growth with operating leverage, strong free cash flow conversion and top-quartile shareholder returns over the long-term." 

The difference between 2019 GAAP and Adjusted EPS guidance is $1.00, consisting of acquisition-related and other charges.  These forecasted charges primarily relate to deal and integration costs, restructuring, Security business transformation and margin enhancement initiatives, and inventory step-up amortization.

Merger And Acquisition ("M&A") Related And Other Charges

Total pre-tax M&A related and other charges in 1Q'19 were $52.6 million, primarily related to restructuring, deal and integration costs, as well as Security business transformation & margin enhancement initiatives.  Gross margin included $6.4 million of these charges while SG&A included $23.0 million.  Other, net and Restructuring included $16.1 million and $7.1 million of these charges, respectively.

Share of net earnings of equity method investment included $3.4 million of charges related to an inventory step-up fair value adjustment.

Organic sales growth is defined as total sales growth less the sales of companies acquired and divested in the past twelve months and any foreign currency impacts. Operating margin is defined as sales less cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses.  Management uses operating margin and its percentage of net sales as key measures to assess the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the related measures at the segment level. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital and software expenditures. Management considers free cash flow an important indicator of its liquidity, as well as its ability to fund future growth and to provide a return to the shareowners. Free cash flow does not include deductions for mandatory debt service, other borrowing activity, discretionary dividends on the Company's common stock and business acquisitions, among other items.  Free cash flow conversion is defined as free cash flow divided by net income. The normalized statement of operations and business segment information, as reconciled to GAAP on pages 12 and 13, is considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company's margin and earnings results aside from the material impact of the M&A related and other charges.  Sears included within this press release is defined as Transform Holdco, LLC which operates Sears & Kmart retail locations.
