  • Reiterating Free Cash Flow Conversion Estimate Of Approximately 100% Of Net Income

3Q'17 Key Points:

  • Net sales for the quarter were $3.3 billion, up 14% versus prior year, as acquisitions (+9%), volume (+7%) and currency (+1%) more than offset divestitures (-3%).
  • Gross margin rate for the quarter was 38.0%. Excluding charges, the gross margin rate was 38.2%, up 60 basis points versus 3Q'16, as volume leverage and productivity more than offset increasing commodity inflation.
  • SG&A expenses were 23.1% of sales. Excluding charges, SG&A expenses were 22.9% of sales, up 50 basis points versus 3Q'16, as investments in growth initiatives were partially offset by other cost management.
  • Operating margin rate was 14.8%. Excluding charges, operating margin rate was 15.3%, a 10 basis point expansion versus 3Q'16.
  • Restructuring charges for the quarter were $19.1 million. Excluding M&A related charges, restructuring charges for the quarter were $11.4 million compared to $9.1 million in 3Q'16.
  • Tax rate was 22.5%. Excluding charges, tax rate was 23.0% versus a rate of 24.0% in 3Q'16.
  • Average diluted shares outstanding for the quarter were 152.6 million versus 148.0 million a year ago, due primarily to share issuances in 4Q'16 associated with the Company's 2013 Equity Units.
  • Working capital turns for the quarter were 6.4, down 0.7 turns from prior year as a result of recent acquisitions and divestitures. Excluding acquisitions and divestitures, turns were flat versus prior year.

Stanley Black & Decker's President and CEO, James M. Loree, commented, "Our results reflect continued focus on delivering strong financial performance while investing in a series of future growth opportunities and executing in accordance with our SFS 2.0 framework. Our team delivered 14% revenue growth, including 7% organic, and a 16% adjusted earnings per share increase with broad-based organic growth across most businesses and geographies.  Tools and Storage led the way with 9% organic growth on strong, innovation-fueled operational execution and generally supportive markets around the world.  Looking forward, our tools franchise continues to benefit from a series of growth catalysts including DC brushless, FlexVolt, the Newell Tools acquisition and beginning in mid-2018, the Craftsman brand.  Industrial organic growth of 8% reflects Engineered Fastening's continued expansion in the automotive and industrial markets, as well as strong growth in both of our infrastructure businesses.  Our acquisitions added nine points of revenue growth as the integrations continue to progress at or ahead of plan.

"It is clear that our recent portfolio actions, along with our focus on our SFS 2.0 operating system, are creating multiple opportunities for our businesses to deliver sustained above-market organic growth and operating margin expansion.  A little more than a year into the role, I could not be more pleased with the performance of this team as we continue on the path to achieve our 22/22 vision.  Our intent is to deliver top-quartile financial performance, to become known as one of the world's leading innovators and to demonstrate our strong commitment to social responsibility."

  • Tools & Storage net sales increased 22% versus 3Q'16 as acquisitions (+13%), volume (+9%) and currency (+1%) more than offset divestitures (-1%). The impact of price was relatively neutral versus 3Q'16. Organic growth was strong across all regions with emerging markets +16%, North America +9% and Europe +5%. Within the emerging markets all regions generated mid-teen organic growth from the continued success of mid-price-point product releases, higher e-commerce volumes and two country specific distribution model changes. North America share gains were fueled by strong commercial execution along with market-leading innovation, including expanded adoption and new product launches within the DEWALT FlexVolt system. Europe delivered another quarter of above-market organic growth enabled by new product innovation and successful commercial actions. Overall Tools & Storage segment profit rate, excluding charges, was 17.8%, up 40 basis points versus 3Q'16 as benefits of volume leverage and productivity more than offset growth investments and commodity inflation.
  • Industrial net sales increased 9% versus 3Q'16 due to volume (+8%) and currency (+1%). Engineered Fastening organic revenues increased 6% as strong automotive system shipments and volume growth within general industrial markets more than offset declines within electronics. Infrastructure organic revenues were up 15% on increased Hydraulic Tools volumes from successful commercial actions and improved market conditions, as well as higher Oil & Gas volumes from North American onshore pipeline project extensions and greater global inspection activity. Overall Industrial segment profit rate was 18.6%, as volume leverage, productivity gains and cost control resulted in a 120 basis point expansion versus the 3Q'16 rate.
  • Security net sales decreased 9% versus 3Q'16 as currency (+2%) and small, bolt-on commercial electronic security acquisitions (+3%) were more than offset by the sale of the Mechanical Security business (-14%). Europe delivered organic growth (+1%) as strength within the UK and the Nordics was partially offset by anticipated ongoing weakness in France. North America declined organically (-1%) as growth within healthcare was more than offset by lower commercial electronic security installations due to customer-directed project delays and a modest impact from the recent hurricanes in Texas and the Southeastern U.S. Overall Security segment profit rate was 11.3%, down from 13.7% last year, reflecting a decline of approximately 100 basis points related to the sale of the Mechanical Security business, as well as impacts from the aforementioned project delays, funding growth investments and mix.

2017 Outlook

Management is raising the mid-point of and tightening its 2017 EPS outlook to $8.20 - $8.30 from $8.05 - $8.25 on a GAAP basis and to $7.33 - $7.43 from $7.18 - $7.38 on an adjusted basis, as it expects stronger full year results attributable primarily to higher organic growth expectations.  The Company is also reiterating its free cash flow conversion estimate of approximately 100%.

Donald Allan Jr., Executive Vice President and CFO, commented, "We are pleased to increase our 2017 guidance, which now reflects our belief that we will achieve organic growth approaching 6% and 13% - 14% earnings per share growth versus prior year.  We are confident in our ability to deliver a strong close to 2017 by maintaining our focus on operational excellence and leveraging investments to deliver above market organic growth, while successfully integrating recent acquisitions.  Additionally, we remain committed to a strong investment-grade credit rating and expect that our robust free cash flow generation will enable us to bring our credit metrics back in line by the end of 2017. 

"As we look ahead to 2018, our strong day-to-day execution and commitment to SFS 2.0 give us confidence in our ability to deliver solid organic growth with operating leverage, earnings per share expansion and free cash flow conversion consistent with our long-term financial objectives."

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

Total M&A related charges in 3Q'17 were $33.3 million, primarily related to restructuring, deal and integration costs, as well as non-cash inventory step-up charges.  Gross margin included $9.6 million of these charges while SG&A included $7.4 million.  Other, net and Restructuring included $5.4 million and $7.7 million, respectively, of these charges.  In addition, a $3.2 million loss was recorded as a result of a small divestiture completed within the quarter.

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, excluding the gain or loss on the sales of businesses. The normalized statement of operations and business segment information, as reconciled to GAAP on pages 12 and 13 for 2017, is considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company's margin and earnings results aside from the material impact of the acquisition-related charges and gain or loss on the sales of businesses.
