P&G Announces Fiscal Year 2024 Second Quarter Results

January 23, 2024

Net Sales +3% and Organic Sales +4%

Diluted EPS $1.40, -12% and Core EPS $1.84, +16%

MAINTAINS FISCAL YEAR SALES AND CASH RETURN GUIDANCE

UPDATES GAAP EPS OUTLOOK, RAISES CORE EPS GROWTH GUIDANCE

The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG) reported second quarter fiscal year 2024 net sales of $21.4 billion, an increase of three percent versus the prior year. Organic sales, which excludes the impacts of foreign exchange and acquisitions and divestitures, increased four percent. Diluted net earnings per share were $1.40, a decrease of 12% versus prior year primarily due to a non-cash impairment of the carrying value of the Gillette intangible asset. Core net earnings per share were $1.84, an increase of 16% versus prior year.

Operating cash flow was $5.1 billion, and net earnings were $3.5 billion for the quarter. Adjusted free cash flow productivity was 95%, which is calculated as operating cash flow excluding capital spending, as a percentage of net earnings excluding the Gillette impairment charge. The Company returned $3.3 billion of cash to shareowners via approximately $2.3 billion of dividend payments and $1 billion of share repurchases.

“We delivered strong results in the second quarter, enabling us to raise our core EPS growth guidance and maintain our top-line outlook for the fiscal year,” said Jon Moeller, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We remain committed to our integrated strategy of a focused product portfolio of daily use categories where performance drives brand choice, superiority — across product performance, packaging, brand communication, retail execution and consumer and customer value — productivity, constructive disruption and an agile and accountable organization. The P&G team’s execution of this strategy has enabled us to build and sustain strong momentum. We have confidence this remains the right strategy to deliver balanced growth and value creation.”

October - December Quarter Discussion

Net sales in the second quarter of fiscal year 2024 were $21.4 billion, a three percent increase versus the prior year. Organic sales, which exclude the impacts of foreign exchange and acquisitions and divestitures, increased four percent. The organic sales increase was driven by a four percent increase from higher pricing, partially offset by a one percent decrease in organic shipment volumes. Mix had a neutral impact on sales for the quarter.

Other includes the sales mix impact from acquisitions and divestitures and rounding impacts necessary to reconcile volume to net sales.

 
  • Beauty segment organic sales increased one percent versus year ago. Skin and Personal Care organic sales declined mid-single digits as volume declines and unfavorable mix due to lower sales of SK-II were partially offset by higher pricing. Hair Care organic sales increased high single digits driven by increased pricing, premium product mix and volume growth, primarily in North America.
  • Grooming segment organic sales increased nine percent versus year ago driven by higher pricing, premium product mix and volume growth.
  • Health Care segment organic sales increased two percent versus year ago. Oral Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due to increased pricing and premium product mix, partially offset by volume declines mainly in Latin America and Asia. Personal Health Care organic sales declined low single digits as volume declines and unfavorable mix due to market decline of respiratory products, were partially offset by increased pricing.
  • Fabric and Home Care segment organic sales increased six percent versus year ago. Fabric Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due to increased pricing and mix due to growth of premium forms and fabric enhancers. Home Care organic sales increased high single digits due to increased pricing, favorable premium products mix and volume growth from innovation.
  • Baby, Feminine and Family Care segment organic sales increased three percent versus year ago. Baby Care organic sales were unchanged as increased pricing and favorable product mix were offset by volume declines. Feminine Care organic sales increased mid-single digits driven by increased pricing and favorable product mix, partially offset by pricing-related volume declines in international markets. Family Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due primarily to volume growth.

Diluted net earnings per share decreased by 12% to $1.40, primarily due to the non-cash charge to impair the carrying value of the Gillette trade name intangible asset and higher non-core restructuring charges. Core net earnings per share increased by 16% to $1.84, driven by an increase in net sales and an increase in core operating margin. Currency-neutral core EPS were up 18% versus the prior year EPS.

Gross margin for the quarter increased 520 basis points versus the prior year, 590 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. The increase was driven by benefits of 240 basis points from gross productivity savings, 200 basis points of favorable commodity costs and 190 basis points from increased pricing. These were partially offset by 40 basis points of product reinvestments and other impacts.

Reported selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) as a percentage of sales increased 130 basis points versus the prior year. Core selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) as a percentage of sales increased 120 basis points versus year ago and 110 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. The increase was driven by 290 basis points of reinvestments, partially offset by 100 basis points of productivity savings and 80 basis points of net sales growth leverage and other impacts.

Reported operating margin for the quarter decreased 230 basis points due primarily to the current period charge for the impairment of the Gillette intangible asset. Excluding this impairment and 10 basis points of non-core restructuring charges, core operating margin for the quarter increased 400 basis points versus the prior year, 470 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. Core operating margin included gross productivity savings of 340 basis points.

Limited Market Portfolio Restructuring

In December 2023, the Company announced a limited market portfolio restructuring of its business operations, primarily in certain Enterprise Markets, including Argentina and Nigeria, to address challenging macroeconomic and fiscal conditions. In connection with this announcement, the Company said that it expects to record incremental restructuring charges of $1.0 to 1.5 billion after tax, including foreign currency translation losses to be recognized upon the substantial liquidation of operations in the affected markets. The Company estimates that the large majority of these charges to be non-cash and anticipates that these restructuring charges will be recognized in the fiscal years ending June 30, 2024 and 2025.

Intangible Asset Impairment

During the October-December 2023 quarter, the Company recorded a $1.3 billion before tax ($1.0 billion after tax) non-cash impairment charge, on intangible assets acquired as part of the Company’s 2005 acquisition of The Gillette Company.

The impairment charge arose from a reduction in the estimated fair value of the Gillette indefinite-lived intangible asset due to a higher discount rate, weakening of several currencies relative to the U.S. dollar and the impact of the non-core restructuring program described above. This impairment charge adjusted the carrying value of the Gillette indefinite-lived intangible asset to fair value.

Fiscal Year 2024 Guidance

P&G maintained its guidance range for fiscal 2024 all-in sales growth to be in the range of two to four percent versus the prior year. Foreign exchange is expected to be a headwind of approximately one to two percentage points to all-in sales growth. The Company also maintained its outlook for organic sales growth in the range of four to five percent.

P&G adjusted its fiscal 2024 diluted net earnings per share growth from a range of six to nine percent to a range of -1% to in-line versus fiscal 2023 EPS of $5.90. This change is due to the impairment of the Gillette intangible asset value discussed above and the two-year restructuring program announced by the Company last month. P&G raised its fiscal 2024 core net earnings per share growth from a range of six to nine percent to a range of eight to nine percent versus fiscal 2023 EPS. This outlook equates to a range of $6.37 to $6.43 per share.

P&G continues to expect unfavorable foreign exchange rates will be a headwind of approximately $1 billion after tax. The Company now expects the net impact of interest expense and interest income to be a headwind of approximately $100 million after tax. The Company continues to expect tailwinds of approximately $800 million after tax due to favorable commodity costs for fiscal year 2024.

The Company is unable to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP cash flow and tax rate measures without unreasonable efforts given the unpredictability of the timing and amounts of discrete items, such as acquisitions, divestitures, or impairments, which could significantly impact GAAP results.

P&G expects a core effective tax rate of approximately 21% in fiscal 2024.

Capital spending is estimated to be approximately 4% of fiscal 2024 net sales.

P&G continues to expect adjusted free cash flow productivity of 90% and expects to pay more than $9 billion in dividends and to repurchase $5 to $6 billion of common shares in fiscal 2024.

Exhibit 1: Non-GAAP Measures

The following provides definitions of the non-GAAP measures used in Procter & Gamble's January 23, 2024 earnings release and the reconciliation to the most closely related GAAP measures. We believe that these measures provide useful perspective on underlying business trends (i.e., trends excluding non-recurring or unusual items) and results and provide a supplemental measure of period-to-period results. The non-GAAP measures described below are used by management in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for business strategy purposes. These measures may be useful to investors, as they provide supplemental information about business performance and provide investors a view of our business results through the eyes of management. These measures are also used to evaluate senior management and are a factor in determining their at-risk compensation. These non-GAAP measures are not intended to be considered by the user in place of the related GAAP measures but rather as supplemental information to our business results. These non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures used by other companies due to possible differences in method and in the items or events being adjusted. The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP cash flow and tax rate measures because the Company cannot predict the timing and amounts of discrete items such as acquisition and divestitures, which could significantly impact GAAP results.

The Core earnings measures included in the following reconciliation tables refer to the equivalent GAAP measures adjusted as applicable for the following items:

  • Incremental restructuring: The Company has historically had an ongoing level of restructuring activities of approximately $250 - $500 million before tax. On December 5, 2023, the Company announced a limited market portfolio restructuring of its business operations, primarily in certain Enterprise Markets, including Argentina and Nigeria. The adjustment to Core earnings includes the restructuring charges that exceed the normal, recurring level of restructuring charges.
  • Intangible asset impairment: The Company recognized in the three months ended December 31, 2023, a non-cash, after-tax impairment charge of $1.0 billion ($1.3 billion before tax) to adjust the carrying value of the Gillette intangible asset acquired as part of the Company's 2005 acquisition of The Gillette Company.

We do not view the above items to be part of our sustainable results, and their exclusion from core earnings measures provides a more comparable measure of year-on-year results. These items are also excluded when evaluating senior management in determining their at-risk compensation.

Organic sales growth: Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of sales growth excluding the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures and foreign exchange from year-over-year comparisons. We believe this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. This measure is used in assessing the achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation.

Core EPS and Currency-neutral EPS: Core earnings per share, or Core EPS, is a measure of diluted net earnings per common share (diluted EPS) adjusted for items as indicated. Currency-neutral EPS is a measure of the Company's Core EPS excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management views these non-GAAP measures as useful supplemental measures of Company performance over time.

Core gross margin and Currency-neutral Core gross margin: Core gross margin is a measure of the Company's gross margin adjusted for items as indicated. Currency-neutral Core gross margin is a measure of the Company's Core gross margin excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Core selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense as a percentage of sales and Currency-neutral Core SG&A expense as a percentage of sales: Core SG&A expense as a percentage of sales is a measure of the Company's selling, general and administrative expense as a percentage of net sales adjusted for items as indicated. Currency-neutral Core SG&A expense as a percentage of sales is a measure of the Company's Core selling, general and administrative expense as a percentage of net sales excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provides a supplemental perspective to the Company's operating efficiency over time.

Core operating margin and Currency-neutral Core operating margin: Core operating margin is a measure of the Company's operating margin adjusted for items as indicated. Currency-neutral Core operating margin is a measure of the Company's Core operating margin excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Adjusted free cash flow: Adjusted free cash flow is defined as operating cash flow less capital expenditures. Adjusted free cash flow represents the cash that the Company is able to generate after taking into account planned maintenance and asset expansion. We view adjusted free cash flow as an important measure because it is one factor used in determining the amount of cash available for dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions and other discretionary investments.

Adjusted free cash flow productivity: Adjusted free cash flow productivity is defined as the ratio of adjusted free cash flow to net earnings excluding the Gillette intangible asset impairment charge. We view adjusted free cash flow productivity as a useful measure to help investors understand P&G’s ability to generate cash. Adjusted free cash flow productivity is used by management in making operating decisions, in allocating financial resources and for budget planning purposes. This measure is also used in assessing the achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation.
