Total Segment Profit in the fourth fiscal quarter increased $70.3 million, or 58.3%.  Organic growth of $21.4 million, or 17.7%, was primarily driven by top-line organic growth and lower overhead and A&P spending.  Adding to the segment profit increase for the quarter was the favorable impact of the acquisitions of $52.2 million, or 43.3%.  Our Argentina operations had a favorable impact on segment profit of $0.7 million, or 0.6%. In addition, foreign currency impacts were unfavorable by $4.0 million, or 3.3%.

Financial Outlook Assumptions for Fiscal Year 2020

The company is providing the below assumptions related to its financial outlook for fiscal 2020 adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, which includes a full year impact of the acquisitions completed in the second quarter of fiscal year 2019.  The outlook does not include any benefit associated with storm activity in fiscal 2020, which, if it occurs, would be incremental.

Note that all comparisons are with the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019 results unless otherwise stated.

Net Sales on a reported basis are expected to increase 9% to 10%, which includes an incremental three months of acquired battery and four months of acquired auto care.  Organic net sales are expected to be up low single digits with combined battery up 1% to 2%, lapping the benefits of hurricane volume in 2019, and combined auto care expected to grow 3.5%.

Within the first quarter of fiscal 2020, we expect organic net sales to decline mid-single digits due to the phasing of holiday shipments that benefited our just completed fourth quarter and benign replenishment of hurricane activity due to minimal power disruption caused by hurricane Dorian.  Expected organic sales growth in the second, third and fourth fiscal quarters will enable us to achieve our full year outlook noted above for organic sales.

Gross margin rates, excluding acquisition and integration costs, are expected to improve slightly, up 10 to 40 basis points compared to the prior year as the benefit of synergies and improved operating efficiencies will be partially offset by approximately $15 to $20 million in foreign currency headwinds and approximately $10 to $15 million in incremental tariffs and Brexit costs.

A&P spending is expected to increase 12% to 15% versus the prior year to support our brands, in particular increased products and packaging innovation and promotional support for our auto care brands.  The increase also reflects incremental A&P from the acquired battery and acquired auto care businesses, which was approximately 3% of the increase.

SG&A, as a percent of net sales, excluding acquisition and integration costs, is expected to be 16.5% to 17% of net sales, driven by realization of synergies and strong cost controls.

Synergies, as mentioned above, are expected to be an incremental $45 to $50 million, with approximately 65% of the benefit realized in Cost of Goods Sold and 35% of the benefit realized in SG&A.

Earnings before income taxes is expected to be unfavorably impacted by foreign currency headwinds of roughly $10 to $15 million, net of hedge impacts, based on current rates.

Ex-unusual income tax rate is expected to be in the range of 20% to 22%, slightly higher than the current fiscal year as we do not expect the favorable return to provision adjustments to repeat.

Adjusted Diluted earnings per share for the full fiscal year is expected to be in the range of $3.00 to $3.20, which includes lapping the $0.03 of hurricane benefit in fiscal year 2019. Adjusted earnings per share for the full fiscal year assumes all preferred shares are converted to common, resulting in an estimated weighted average diluted share count of 75.1 million shares.

Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $610 to $640 million.

Capital spending, excluding integration, is expected to be in the range of $40 to $45 million.  Integration related capital is expected to be $50 to $60 million.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow is expected to be in the range of $310 to $340 million.

Net leverage is expected to be in the range of 4.2 to 4.4 times, on a credit defined basis, by the end of fiscal year 2020.

ENERGIZER HOLDINGS, INC.
Supplemental Schedules
Introduction to the Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures
For the Quarter and Twelve Months ended September 30, 2019

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP"). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users with additional meaningful comparisons to the corresponding historical or future period.  These non-GAAP financial measures exclude items that are not reflective of the Company's on-going operating performance, such as acquisition and integration costs and related items, settlement loss on pension plan terminations, gains on sale of real estate and the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation. In addition, these measures help investors to analyze year over year comparability when excluding currency fluctuations, acquisition activity as well as other company initiatives that are not on-going. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are an enhancement to assist investors in understanding our business and in performing analysis consistent with financial models developed by research analysts. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, 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 being adjusted.

We provide the following non-GAAP measures and calculations, as well as the corresponding reconciliation to the closest GAAP measure in the following supplemental schedules:

Segment profit.  This amount represents the operations of our two reportable segments including allocations for shared support functions.  General corporate and other expenses, global marketing expenses, R&D expenses, amortization expense, interest expense, other items, net, and charges related to acquisition and integration, settlement loss on pension plan terminations and gains on sale of real estate have all been excluded from segment profit.

Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations and Adjusted Diluted net earnings per common share - continuing operations (EPS).  These measures exclude the impact of the costs related to acquisition and integration, settlement loss on pension plan terminations, gains on sale of real estate and the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation.

Non-GAAP Tax Rate. This is the tax rate when excluding the pre-tax impact of acquisition and integration, settlement loss on pension plan terminations and gains on sale of real estate, as well as the related tax impact for these items, calculated utilizing the statutory rate for where the costs were incurred, as well as the one-time impact of the new U.S. tax legislation.

Organic.  This is the non-GAAP financial measurement of the change in revenue or segment profit that excludes or otherwise adjusts for the impact of acquisitions, operations in Argentina, and the impact of currency from the changes in foreign currency exchange rates as defined below:

Impact of acquisitions. Energizer completed the Auto Care Acquisition on January 28, 2019, the Battery Acquisition on January 2, 2019 and the Nu Finish Acquisition on July 2, 2018.  These adjustments include the impact the acquisitions' ongoing operations contributed to each respective income statement caption for the first year's operations directly after the acquisition date.  This does not include the impact of acquisition and integration costs associated with the acquisitions.

Change in Argentina operations. The Company is presenting separately all changes in sales and segment profit from our Argentina affiliate due to the designation of the economy as highly inflationary as of July 1, 2018.

Impact of currency. The Company evaluates the operating performance of our Company on a currency neutral basis. The impact of currency is the difference between the value of current year foreign operations at the current period ending USD exchange rate, compared to the value of the current year foreign operations at the prior period ending USD exchange rate.

Adjusted Comparisons.  Detail for adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted SG&A, adjusted SG&A as a percent of sales and adjusted Other items, net are also supplemental non-GAAP measure disclosures. These measures exclude the impact of costs related to acquisition and integration.

Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow. Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities reduced by capital expenditures, net of the proceeds from asset sales. Adjusted Free Cash Flow is defined as Free Cash Flow excluding the cash payments for acquisition and integration expenses and integration capital expenditures. These expense cash payments are net of the statutory tax benefit associated with the payment.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as net earnings before income tax provision, interest and depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA further excludes the impact of the costs related to acquisition and integration, settlement loss on pension plan termination, gain on sale of real estate, and share based payments.
