The Clorox Company Declares Regular Quarterly Dividend, Payable on February 13, 2015

The Clorox Company announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of 74 cents per share on the company's common stock, payable on February 13, 2015, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on January 28, 2015.

The Clorox Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal 2015

The Clorox Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company’s net sales were $1,352 million against $1,343 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $218 million against $211 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations were $145 million or $1.10 per diluted share against $139 million or $1.05 per diluted share a year ago. Net earnings were $90 million or $0.68 per diluted share against $136 million or $1.03 per diluted share a year ago. EBIT was $243 million against $236 million a year ago. EBITDA was $286 million against $279 million a year ago. Net cash provided by continuing operations was $234 million for the quarter, compared with $184 million in the year-ago quarter. The year-over-year increase of $50 million was due to favorable changes in working capital, primarily related to a lower incentive compensation payment in the current quarter, as well as the timing of tax payments. For the fiscal 2015, the company expected sales about flat, or 1% to 3% increase on currency-neutral basis (unchanged) EBIT margin about flat (previously 25 basis points to 50 basis points expansion). Diluted EPS range (unchanged) will be $4.35 to $4.50. The company continues to anticipate fiscal year 2015 sales to be about flat, with the benefits of innovation and price increases offset by continuing category softness and the impact of foreign currency declines across most international markets, particularly in Argentina. On a currency-neutral basis, the company continues to anticipate sales growth in the range of 1% to 3% for the fiscal year. Clorox now anticipates EBIT margin to be about flat for the fiscal year, versus the previous outlook of 25 basis points to 50 basis points expansion, due to the results from Clorox Venezuela being included in discontinued operations, and moderately higher commodity costs. Excluding Clorox Venezuela fiscal year 2014 EBIT margin increased by 60 basis points to 17.8% from 17.2% previously reported for that period. The company now anticipated its effective fiscal year 2015 tax rate to be closer to 34% than the previous outlook in the range of 34% to 35%. Net of all these factors, the company continued to anticipate fiscal 2015 diluted EPS from continuing operations in the range of $4.35 to $4.50.

Grocery Chain Sues Clorox Corp. for Price Discrimination

The Woodman's grocery store chain is suing Clorox Corp., alleging price discrimination. In a lawsuit filed on October 28 in U.S. District Court in Madison, Woodman's claims Clorox will only make large packs of products available to warehouse clubs, including Costco and Sam's Club. The company claims that's a violation of a federal law, the Robinson-Patman Act, which prohibits anti-competitive practices, including price discrimination. The lawsuit alleges that Clorox told Woodman's it was changing its marketing strategy by placing the grocer into a different 'channel' than Costco and Sam's Club, and creating the 'right assortment' of sizes and brands for different retailers based on their shoppers. But those justifications don't address the claims of price discrimination. And the practice will hurt its ability to compete with the nearby warehouse clubs.
