Stanley Black & Decker Reports 3Q 2012 Results

Donald Allan Jr., Senior Vice President and CFO commented, “As the year has progressed market-related volume reductions in some of our more profitable businesses have created ongoing pressure to our earnings expectations and required the cost actions we announced earlier in the year. However, we feel very strongly that the plan to invest in growth as opposed to taking out incremental costs at this particular time is the right one for our businesses under the circumstances as we can no longer rely on the macro environment to provide any tailwind beyond perhaps the U.S. housing market. We remain focused on our mid-decade goal to become a diversified enterprise with greater than 20% of revenues from emerging markets and a long term organic growth target range of 4-6%. It is decisions like these that enable us to achieve our goals and objectives amidst a slow growth macroeconomic path ahead. Our free cash flow guidance of $1.2 billion for the full year remains fully intact as the tenets of the Stanley Fulfillment System continue to drive a culture of continuous improvement throughout the company.”

Including all acquisition, Black & Decker transaction-related one-time charges, the charges associated with the 2012 cost actions and the charges associated with the extinguishment of debt, the company expects EPS to approximate $3.65 in 2012. For the full year of 2012 the company estimates the one-time charges to be approximately $350 million consisting of restructuring and related costs associated with severance of employees and facility closures and certain compensation charges, advisory and consulting fees, as well as the charges associated with the extinguishment of debt.

Merger And Acquisition and Other Charges

Total one-time charges in 3Q’12 related to Merger and Acquisition charges, the charges associated with the $200 million in cost actions implemented thus far in 2012, as well as the charges related to the extinguishment of debt during the quarter were $161.3 million. Gross margin includes $11.6 million of these one-time charges, primarily facility closure-related charges, and SG&A includes $38.9 million in one-time charges, primarily for integration-related administration costs and consulting fees, as well as employee-related matters. $28.0 million of these costs that impact the Company’s operating margin are included in segment results, with the remainder in corporate overhead. One-time charges of $57.4 million included in Other, net primarily relate to the extinguishment of debt. Lastly, one-time charges of $53.4 million are included in restructuring charges, the majority of which represent Niscayah-related restructuring charges and cost containment actions associated with the severance of employees.
