Jan Zijderveld, Avon CEO, said, "We continue to execute our Open Up turnaround strategy, with productivity gains driving adjusted operating margin expansion and improved free cash flow1. The push and pull strategies that we have spoken about, along with a bigger, on trend stream of innovations, are working together to create significant value. As expected, revenues declined as we continued to make sharper choices designed to drive a healthier, more sustainable and more profitable business."

Mr. Zijderveld continued, "Our focus on productivity led to a 4% improvement in Average Representative Sales with price/mix up 9%. We are restoring brand relevance and improving the effectiveness of our portfolios with innovation focused on Beauty. Our training programs are expanding and getting stronger based on what we have learned. Representatives are more productive and better practices are improving the quality of sales, both of which are crucial to sustainable, profitable growth."

Gustavo Arnal, Avon CFO, said, "We continue driving pricing and productivity improvements across all areas of our business. As we do this, we are transitioning to a more financially sound and sustainable business. Adjusted operating margins in Q3 doubled versus prior year, in spite of FX. Year to date, we have reduced headcount by 15% and aggressively reduced costs as part of our Fuel for Growth program. Free Cash Flow in Q3 was four times higher than last year, even as we funded significant restructuring investments."

Highlights for Third-Quarter 2019 (compared with third-quarter 2018, unless otherwise noted):

  • Total Reportable Segment Revenue decreased 16% in reported currency. Adjusted Total Reportable Segment Revenue decreased 6% in constant dollars, driven by unit volume declines from less profitable products.
  • Price/mix increased 9%, driven by increases in every segment, as well as in every category.
  • Average Representative Sales in constant dollars from Reportable Segments increased 4%, driven by increases in Latin America and Asia Pacific.
  • Active Representatives increased 1% compared to second-quarter 2019 and declined 10% versus third-quarter 2018.
  • Gross Margin of 60.6%. Adjusted Gross Margin increased 100 basis points to 58.1%, driven by price/mix which offset foreign exchange.
  • Operating Margin of 8.2%. Adjusted Operating Margin increased 300 basis points to 6.0%, driven by price/mix and savings across multiple cost lines, more than offsetting foreign exchange.
  • Diluted Earnings Per Share from continuing operations of $0.21. Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.11, compared with Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.00 for third-quarter 2018.

During the third quarter of 2019, the following adjustments were made to GAAP Operating Profit to arrive at Adjusted Operating Profit:

  • The Company recorded certain Brazil indirect tax benefits of approximately $68 million.
  • The Company recorded costs to implement ("CTI") restructuring of approximately $18 million, primarily related to the Open Up Avon initiative.
  • The Company recorded approximately $19 million of other expenses, primarily professional fees incurred in relation to the Natura transaction.

Third-Quarter 2019 Free Cash Flow Review (compared with third-quarter 2018)

  • Free Cash Flow of $64.8 million was four times higher than the prior year driven by operational improvements in both earnings and working capital. Cash proceeds from asset sales, including the monetization of tax assets, funded Open Up Avon restructuring and mitigated the impact of non-recurring tax benefits in the third quarter of 2018.

1 "Adjusted" items refer to financial measures that are derived from measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, but which have been adjusted to exclude certain items.

All of these adjusted items are Non-GAAP financial measures as described below under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures." These Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  Please refer to the Company's "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" description at the end of this release and the reconciliations the Company provides of these Non-GAAP financial measures to their comparable GAAP measures.

Net income from continuing operations allocable to common shares used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation was $93.0 and $94.3 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Net income from continuing operations allocable to common shares used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation was $63.5 and $39.3 for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Amounts in the table above may not necessarily sum because the computations are made independently.

Note: The diluted EPS impact for each Non-GAAP item on the table above is not provided due to the participation rights of the Series C convertible preferred stock. The Reported and Adjusted diluted EPS are calculated independently and factor in the participation rights of the Series C convertible preferred stock, and, therefore, would cause the amounts not to sum to Adjusted diluted EPS.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: revenue, adjusted revenue, operating profit (loss), Adjusted operating profit, operating margin, Adjusted operating margin and diluted earnings (loss) per share. The Company also refers to these adjusted financial measures as constant dollar items, which are Non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends and underlying business results. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, the Company calculates current-year results and prior-year results at constant exchange rates, which are updated on an annual basis as part of the Company's budgeting process. Foreign currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant-dollar growth rates. The approximate unfavorable impact of foreign currency on third-quarter 2019 Total Avon revenue was 4%.

The Company also presents total revenue, cost of sales, gross margin, selling, general and administrative expenses, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue, operating profit (loss), operating margin, income (loss) before taxes, income taxes, net income (loss), diluted earnings (loss) per share and effective tax rate on a Non-GAAP basis. The Company refers to these Non-GAAP financial measures as "Adjusted." The Company also presents free cash flow as an additional financial measure for liquidity. The Company has provided quantitative reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and reported in accordance with GAAP. See "Supplemental Schedule - Non-GAAP Financial Measures" within this release for these quantitative reconciliations.

The Company uses Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate its operating performance. These Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes investors find the Non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the Company's financial results in any particular period. The Company believes that it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of the impacts of 1) certain Brazil indirect taxes; 2) CTI restructuring initiatives; 3) Natura transaction fees and other impairment losses on assets; 4) costs associated with the early termination of debt; and 5) one-time tax items that are not associated with recurring, normal operations ("Special tax items").
