Fortune Brands Reports Second Quarter Results

Fortune Brands, Inc.

Fortune Brands, Inc. (NYSE: FO):

Fortune Brands, Inc. [NYSE: FO], the company behind leading consumer brands including Jim Beam, Titleist and Moen, today reported results for the second quarter of 2010. Net sales increased 9% on double-digit sales growth for home and security products and strong gains for the company’s spirits and golf brands. Operating income once again grew faster than sales, reflecting the benefit of share gains and lower cost structures. Diluted earnings per share were $1.48 and included gains related to the favorable resolution of routine income tax audits. Diluted EPS before charges/gains was $0.98, up 40% from the year-ago quarter. The company also announced that it increased its target for 2010 diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $2.60-2.90, up from $2.50-2.80.

“Fortune Brands delivered strong second-quarter sales growth and double-digit growth in earnings, and we’re on track for strong full-year results,” said Bruce Carbonari, chairman and chief executive officer of Fortune Brands. “In the quarter, we achieved broad-based share gains and leveraged our lower cost structures, while also benefiting from pull-forward of sales by customers in our home and spirits segments as well as favorable comparisons. Each of our three brand groups grew sales faster than our markets, delivered operating margins at or near the top of our consumer segments, and outperformed our expectations in the quarter.

“Fortune Brands has executed well in delivering compelling new products, global expansion initiatives and successful brand investment programs. Our consistently high quality and strong customer service are also helping us expand key customer relationships. In spirits, we grew both net sales and case volumes at a mid-single-digit rate in the quarter as brands such as Maker’s Mark bourbon, Courvoisier cognac, Hornitos tequila, Cruzan rum and Red Stag by Jim Beam helped fuel growth. Our home and security brands grew sales 13%, benefiting from share gains fueled by new products, new offerings across price points and expanded relationships with key customers. Strong growth in international markets and double-digit sales gains for the Titleist Pro V1 golf ball and FootJoy shoes helped drive our performance in golf,” said Carbonari.

For the second quarter of 2010:

Targeting Full-Year EPS before Charges/Gains in Range of $2.60-2.90

“Consistent with the view we’ve discussed throughout the year, the pace of economic recovery continues to be gradual and uneven,” said Carbonari. “We’re pleased with the success of our share-gain initiatives and the momentum we’ve built with new products, new customer business and strong operating leverage. Our strategies are delivering and we remain confident that Fortune Brands will produce strong earnings growth in 2010. As a result, we plan to continue investing behind our brands, including higher year-over-year support for long-term growth initiatives in the second half of 2010.”

The company estimates that pull-forward in home products demand due to expiration of the U.S. homebuyer tax credit, plus the timing of spirits orders, benefited the second quarter at the expense of the third quarter by approximately $0.10-0.15 per share. “In addition to the pull-forward of sales into the second quarter,” Carbonari continued, “we anticipate the back half of the year will be impacted by certain headwinds we’ve previously discussed, including higher costs for raw materials and transportation, the stronger U.S. dollar, annualizing cost savings and increasingly challenging comparisons to last year’s improving results.

“However, even with these headwinds, we continue to believe that the markets for each of our three brand groups will grow at a low-single-digit rate for the year. Factoring in our strong year-to-date results, as well as the challenging dynamics we anticipate in the second half, we are raising our full-year earnings target. We’re now targeting that Fortune Brands will deliver diluted EPS before charges/gains in the range of $2.60 to $2.90 for 2010. We’re aiming to outperform our markets and believe that Fortune Brands is well positioned as we benefit from our strategic investments, share gains, lower cost structures and enhanced productivity,” Carbonari concluded.

The company’s previous full-year earnings target was for diluted EPS before charge/gains to be in the range of $2.50-2.80. Fortune Brands reported EPS before charges/gains of $2.43 in 2009.

The company also announced that it has raised its free cash flow target. The company is now targeting to generate free cash flow for 2010 in the range of $525-600 million. The target includes the company’s anticipated higher earnings and improved cash flow management, and the increase reflects the benefit of asset sales.
