The Clorox Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Half Year Ended December 31, 2013; Revises Financial Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2014

The Clorox Company reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter and half year ended December 31, 2013. For the quarter, net sales were $1,330 million against $1,325 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $181 million against $188 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations were $116 million or $0.88 per diluted share against $123 million or $0.93 per diluted share a year ago. Net earnings were $115 million or $0.87 per diluted share against $123 million or $0.93 per diluted share a year ago. For the half year, net sales were $2,694 million against $2,663 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $389 million against $382 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations were $253 million or $1.92 per diluted share against $256 million or $1.94 per diluted share a year ago. Net earnings were $251 million or $1.90 per diluted share against $256 million or $1.94 per diluted share a year ago. Year-to-date net cash provided by continuing operations was $212 million, compared with $325 million in the year-ago period. Contributing factors to the year-over-year change include higher tax payments of $67 million and the company's funding of liabilities under certain nonqualified deferred compensation plans of $26 million. Year-to-date free cash flow was $149 million versus $223 million in the same period a year ago. The company now anticipates sales growth for fiscal 2014 to be in the range of 1% to 2%, reflecting a greater impact from unfavorable foreign currencies in Argentina and other countries, which are now expected to negatively affect fiscal year sales by more than 2 percentage points. This range reflects up to 3 percentage points of negative impact from foreign currency declines in the second half of the fiscal year. On a currency-neutral basis, the company's fiscal year sales outlook is about 3% to 4% growth. The company continues to anticipate EBIT margin to be in the range of flat to up 25 basis points, driven by lower selling and administrative expense as a percentage of sales, partially offset by higher commodity costs, which are expected to negatively impact margins by more than 100 basis points, as well as continued inflation in some international markets. The company continues to anticipate offsetting these factors by delivering cost savings of about 150 basis points. The company continues to anticipate an effective tax rate of about 34% for fiscal 2014. Net of all these factors, the company now anticipates fiscal 2014 diluted EPS from continuing operations in the range of $4.40 to $4.55. This 5 cents reduction against the previous outlook reflects the company's new foreign currency assumption primarily for Argentina. The company continues to anticipate free cash flow to be about 10% of sales for the fiscal year 2014.
