(NYSE:PBH) today reported financial results for its second quarter and first six months ended September 30, 2020.“We achieved a strong second quarter performance, driven by our leading and trusted portfolio of brands.  Our time-tested brand-building and diversified portfolio led to stable revenue that once again translated into strong earnings growth in the second quarter and allowed us to continue our strategy of debt reduction and disciplined capital allocation, all in spite of disruptions related to COVID-19” said Ron Lombardi, Chief Executive Officer of Prestige Consumer Healthcare.Second Fiscal Quarter Ended September 30, 2020Reported revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 0.3% to $237.4 million versus $238.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.  Revenues decreased 0.5% excluding the impact of foreign currency.  The revenue performance for the quarter was driven by stable consumption across the majority of the Company’s portfolio, partially offset by reduced consumption for certain brands where the category has been disrupted by the COVID-19 virus.Reported net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $44.6 million, compared to the prior year quarter’s net income of $33.3 million. Diluted earnings per share of $0.88 for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $0.65 in the prior year comparable period.  On a Non-GAAP basis, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $39.5 million and $0.78, respectively, compared to $34.3 million and $0.68 earnings per share in the prior year comparable period.The adjustment of net income in the second quarter Fiscal 2021 related to the final regulations issued during the fiscal quarter for certain tax elements imposed under the domestic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which resulted in a one-time discrete benefit associated with the utilization of foreign tax credits.  Adjustments to net income in the second quarter of Fiscal 2020 included costs associated with a new logistics provider and location, and the related income tax effects of the adjustments. Six Months Ended September 30, 2020Reported revenues for the first six months of Fiscal 2021 totaled $466.8 million, a decrease of 0.7%, compared to revenues of $470.2 million for the first six months of Fiscal 2020.  The revenue performance for the first six months was driven by stable consumption across the majority of the Company’s portfolio and a benefit associated with higher retailer order patterns to refill customer’s supply chains.  This was partially offset by reduced consumption for certain brands where the category has been impacted by the COVID-19 virus.Reported net income for the first six months of fiscal 2021 totaled $88.3 million versus the prior year comparable period net income of $67.2 million.  Diluted earnings per share were $1.74 for the first six months of fiscal 2021 compared to $1.31 per share in the prior year comparable period.

The second quarter fiscal 2021 revenue performance was driven by consumption growth across the majority of the segment’s core brand portfolio, but partially offset by a reduction in consumption for certain brands where the category consumption levels have been disrupted by the COVID-19 virus.For the first six months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the North American OTC Healthcare segment increased to $427.2 million compared to $424.7 million in the prior year comparable period.  The increased revenue versus the prior year comparable period benefited from an increase in consumption levels for the majority of the Company’s core brand portfolio as well as a benefit in the first quarter associated with higher retailer order patterns to refill customer’s supply chains, partially offset by a reduction in consumption for certain brands where the category consumption levels have been impacted by the COVID-19 virus.International OTC Healthcare: Segment fiscal second quarter 2021 revenues totaled $20.8 million, compared to $24.2 million reported in the prior year comparable period.  Revenues versus the prior year were impacted by reduced consumption for certain brands impacted by the COVID-19 virus such as Hydralyte, partially offset by a foreign currency benefit of approximately $0.7 million.For the first six months of the current fiscal year, reported revenues for the International OTC Healthcare segment were $39.6 million versus the prior year’s comparable period’s revenues of $45.6 million, driven by reduced consumption for certain brands impacted by the COVID-19 virus such as Hydralyte.Commentary and Outlook for Fiscal 2021Ron Lombardi, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our second quarter revenues were stable owing to the many strengths of our overall business, including our broadly diversified portfolio of leading brands, agile marketing strategy and significant ongoing growth in the eCommerce channel stemming from long-term investments.  Our strong financial profile and disciplined capital allocation strategy allowed us to pay down $74 million in debt in the second quarter, which further enables long-term capital allocation optionality.”“During the second quarter, we experienced more stable consumption and retailer order patterns.  This stabilization enables us to offer a full-year outlook based on the trends we are seeing.  For revenue, we anticipate FY’21 revenue of ~$925M.  This outlook is driven by positive growth in most core brands offset by consumer behaviors stemming from the COVID-19 virus affecting demand in certain categories such as cough and cold during the upcoming peak season.  Most importantly we plan to continue to execute our strategy of long-term brand-building and growing sales across our portfolio of core brands,” he continued.“We expect our leading financial profile will translate into strong earnings growth for the year, owing to disciplined cost management, strong cash flow and continued emphasis on debt reduction.  We are confident in our strategy that positions us well to withstand these challenges as evidenced by our first half results.  Our brand-building efforts, financial profile and disciplined capital allocation approach will enable us to focus on long-term top- and bottom-line growth prospects that position us for continued success,” he concluded.Fiscal Second Quarter 2021 Conference Call, Accompanying Slide Presentation and ReplayThe Company will host a conference call to review its second quarter and first half results today, November 5, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. ET.
