NEW YORK, Apr 26, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Revlon, Inc. (NYSE: REV) today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

First quarter 2012 results compared to first quarter 2011:

  • Operating income of $44.3 million compared to $44.7 million.
  • Income before income taxes of $19.5 million compared to $18.1 million.
  • Net income of $8.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $10.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDAa of $60.0 million compared to $60.7 million.
  • Net cash used in operating activities of $20.4 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $24.1 million; free cash flowb was negative $23.9 million compared to positive free cash flow of $21.7 million. The first quarter of 2012 was impacted primarily by the renewal and partial prepayment of certain multi-year insurance programs; higher sales returns and allowances as expected and previously accrued for by the Company in the fourth quarter of 2011; and other changes in working capital.

Commenting on today's announcement, Revlon President and Chief Executive Officer, Alan T. Ennis, said, "We continue to focus on driving top-line profitable growth and, in the first quarter of 2012, we grew net sales and delivered competitive margins. We remain focused on building our strong brands by launching and appropriately supporting innovative new products and we are pleased with our new product launches so far this year."

First Quarter 2012 Results

Net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $330.7 million compared to $333.2 million in the first quarter of 2011. Excluding unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations of $4.0 million, net sales increased $1.5 million, or 0.5% compared to the first quarter of 2011. The first quarter of 2012 benefited from higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics and Revlon ColorSilk hair color, and the inclusion of the net sales of SinfulColors for a full quarter. These increases were partially offset by lower net sales of Almay color cosmetics and fragrances, as well as lower net sales in Venezuela due to the June 2011 fire at the Company's local facility. In 2011, the results of operations from the SinfulColors acquisition were included in the consolidated financial statements commencing on the date of acquisition, March 17, 2011.

In the United States, net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $184.7 million, a decrease of $1.5 million, or 0.8%, as compared to $186.2 million in the same period last year. Lower net sales of Almay color cosmetics and Revlon beauty tools were partially offset by the inclusion of the net sales of SinfulColors for a full quarter in 2012.

In Asia Pacific, net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $56.1 million, an increase of $3.0 million, or 5.6%, compared to $53.1 million in the same period last year. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $1.2 million, or 2.3%, primarily due to higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics in certain distributor markets.

In Europe, Middle East and Africa, net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $45.8 million, a decrease of $3.9 million, or 7.8%, compared to $49.7 million in the same period last year. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales decreased $0.8 million, or 1.6%, primarily due to lower net sales of fragrances in Italy and certain distributor markets, partially offset by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics in certain distributor markets.

In Latin America, net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $26.3 million, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 2.6%, compared to $27.0 million in the same period last year. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $1.7 million, or 6.3%. The increase was primarily due to higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics and Revlon ColorSilk hair color, partially offset by lower net sales in Venezuela, where the Company had not fully resumed business since the June 2011 fire that destroyed the Company's local facility.

In Canada, net sales in the first quarter of 2012 were $17.8 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 3.5%, compared to $17.2 million in the same period last year. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $0.9 million, or 5.2%, primarily due to higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics and Revlon beauty tools.

Operating income in the first quarter of 2012 was $44.3 million, compared to $44.7 million in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2012 was $60.0 million, compared to $60.7 million in the same period last year. Lower gross profit, as a result of lower net sales and higher cost of sales in the period, was largely offset by the benefit of lower SG&A expenses. SG&A expenses decreased versus the first quarter of 2011 primarily due to lower advertising expenses as a result of the timing of advertising campaigns in 2012 compared to 2011.

Interest expense, including preferred stock dividends, decreased $2.6 million to $21.6 million in the first quarter of 2012 compared to the same period last year, primarily due to refinancing the Company's term loan credit facility in May 2011 at lower interest rates.

Income before income taxes was $19.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, as compared to $18.1 million in the same period last year. The provision for income taxes was $11.0 million compared to $7.7 million in the same period last year. Cash paid for income taxes, net of refunds, in the first quarter of 2012 was $3.4 million compared to $2.2 million in the same period last year.

Net income in the first quarter of 2012 was $8.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to net income of $10.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Net cash used in operating activities in the first quarter of 2012 was $20.4 million, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $24.1 million in the same period last year. Free cash flow was negative $23.9 million, compared to positive free cash flow of $21.7 million in the same period last year. The first quarter of 2012 was impacted primarily by the renewal and partial prepayment of certain multi-year insurance programs; higher sales returns and allowances as expected and previously accrued for by the Company in the fourth quarter of 2011; and other changes in working capital.

Net cash used in investing activities in the first quarter of 2012 was $3.5 million, compared to $41.4 million in the same period last year. The first quarter of 2011 included $39.0 million paid for the SinfulColors acquisition.

Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures that are defined in the footnotes to this release and are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures, respectively, in the accompanying financial tables.

Footnotes to Press Release

a Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to net income, its most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gains/losses on foreign currency fluctuations, gains/losses on the early extinguishment of debt and miscellaneous expenses. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, the Company excludes the effects of gains/losses on foreign currency fluctuations, gains/losses on the early extinguishment of debt, results of and gains/losses on discontinued operations and miscellaneous expenses because the Company's management believes that some of these items may not occur in certain periods, the amounts recognized can vary significantly from period to period and these items do not facilitate an understanding of the Company's operating performance. The Company's management utilizes Adjusted EBITDA as an operating performance measure in conjunction with GAAP measures, such as net income and gross margin calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's management uses Adjusted EBITDA as an integral part of its reporting and planning processes and as one of the primary measures to, among other things --

(i) monitor and evaluate the performance of the Company's business operations;

(ii) facilitate management's internal comparisons of the Company's historical operating performance of its business operations;

(iii) facilitate management's external comparisons of the results of its overall business to the historical operating performance of other companies that may have different capital structures and debt levels;

(iv) review and assess the operating performance of the Company's management team and, together with free cash flow and other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses;

(v) analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions regarding future operating investments; and

(vi) plan for and prepare future annual operating budgets and determine appropriate levels of operating investments.

The Company's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors to provide them with disclosures of the Company's operating results on the same basis as that used by the Company's management. Additionally, the Company's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors about the performance of the Company's overall business because such measure eliminates the effects of unusual or other infrequent charges that are not directly attributable to the Company's underlying operating performance. Additionally, the Company's management believes that because it has historically provided Adjusted EBITDA in previous press releases, that including such non-GAAP measure in its earnings releases provides consistency in its financial reporting and continuity to investors for comparability purposes. Accordingly, the Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, when used in conjunction with GAAP financial measures, is a useful financial analysis tool, used by the Company's management, as described above, that can assist investors in assessing the Company's financial condition, operating performance and underlying strength. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income / (loss) prepared in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may define EBITDA differently. Also, while EBITDA is defined differently than Adjusted EBITDA for the Company's credit agreement, certain financial covenants in its borrowing arrangements are tied to similar measures. Adjusted EBITDA, as well as the other information in this press release, should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements and footnotes contained in the documents that the Company files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

b Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure that is reconciled to net cash provided by operating activities, its most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment, plus proceeds from the sale of certain assets. Free cash flow excludes proceeds on sale of discontinued operations. Management uses free cash flow (i) to evaluate its business and financial performance and overall liquidity; (ii) in strategic planning; and (iii) to review and assess the operating performance of the Company's management team and, together with Adjusted EBITDA and other operational objectives, as a measure in evaluating employee compensation and bonuses. Management believes that free cash flow is useful for investors because it provides them with an important perspective on the cash available for debt repayment and other strategic measures, after making necessary capital investments in property and equipment to support the Company's ongoing business operations, and provides them with the same measures that management uses as the basis for making resource allocation decisions. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures, as it excludes certain expenditures such as mandatory debt service requirements, which for the Company are significant. The Company does not intend for free cash flow to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures. Other companies may define free cash flow or similarly titled measures differently.
