DEERFIELD, Ill. - Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc. (NYSE: FBHS), an industry-leading home and security products company, today announced fourth quarter and full-year 2013 results and issued its 2014 annual outlook for sales and earnings per share.

"We delivered another strong quarter and full year as we leveraged our structural competitive advantages and the market recovery to deliver profitable growth," said Chris Klein, chief executive officer, Fortune Brands Home & Security. "Entering 2014, our annual outlook calls for continued growth based on our strong execution and the continuing market recovery for both new construction and, importantly, repair and remodel activity."

Fourth Quarter 2013

For the fourth quarter of 2013, net sales were $1.10 billion, an increase of 16 percent over the fourth quarter of 2012. Diluted earnings per share were $0.37, compared to $0.11 in the prior-year quarter. Diluted EPS before charges/gains were $0.38, compared to $0.23 the same quarter last year. Operating income was $95.4 million, compared to $7.5 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating income before charges/gains was $97.3 million, compared to $61.2 million the same quarter last year.

"Sales were up a combined 20 percent versus last year for our home segments in the fourth quarter as we benefitted from new construction and continued repair and remodel momentum. Importantly, total company operating income before charges/gains increased 59 percent," Klein said.

For each segment in the fourth quarter 2013, compared to the prior-year quarter:

• Kitchen & Bath Cabinetry net sales were up 34 percent. Sales increased across all channels led by dealers, with continued improvement in repair and remodel volume and mix. Operating income before charges/gains increased $21.3 million over last year to $33.6 million.

• Plumbing & Accessories net sales were up 7 percent, 10 percent excluding the benefit of a 53rd week in 2012. Sales grew in all channels, with wholesale leading the growth and operating income before charges/gains up 28 percent.

• Advanced Material Windows & Door Systems net sales were up 13 percent, with entry doors sales up 19 percent and windows sales up 7 percent. Operating income before charges/gains for the segment increased 18 percent.

• Security & Storage net sales decreased 2 percent. As expected, a security sales increase of 8 percent was more than offset by a 16 percent tool storage decline, due primarily to timing of holiday shipments to the largest customer. Segment operating income before charges/gains was up 8 percent.

Full Year 2013

For the full year 2013, net sales were $4.2 billion, an increase of 16 percent over 2012. Diluted earnings per share were $1.34 compared to $0.71 in the prior year, and diluted EPS before charges/gains were $1.50 versus $0.89 last year, an increase of 69 percent.

"Our balance sheet strengthened during 2013, even as we completed the WoodCrafters acquisition, repurchased $52 million of our shares and initiated a quarterly dividend," said Lee Wyatt, chief financial officer. "As of December 31, 2013, cash was $241 million and debt was $356 million, resulting in net debt to EBITDA of 0.2 times. We also announced a 20 percent increase in our quarterly dividend beginning in 2014."

"We have built strong momentum over the past two years," said Klein. "We believe we are still in the early stages of a multi-year housing recovery and are well positioned to continue to leverage our structural competitive advantages and drive profitable growth well into the future."

Annual Outlook for 2014

The Company's 2014 annual outlook is based on a home products market growth assumption of 10 to 11 percent. Based on the Company's strong performance, its confidence in the housing market recovery and expectation to continue outperforming the market, the Company expects full-year 2014 net sales to increase 11 to 13 percent. The Company expects diluted EPS before charges/gains to be in the range of $1.91 to $2.01. This targeted range compares to 2013 diluted EPS before charges/gains of $1.50.

The Company expects to generate $250+ million in free cash flow in 2014, net of capital expenditures of $130 to $140 million, as it begins to invest in incremental capacity and infrastructure to support multi-year growth.

(a) Free cash flow is cash flow from operations calculated in accordance with GAAP less net capital expenditures (capital expenditures less proceeds from the sale of assets including property, plant and equipment) plus proceeds from the exercise of stock options. Free cash flow does not reflect adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows such as mandatory debt repayments. Free cash flow is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that free cash flow provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions, repay debt and related interest, pay dividends and repurchase common stock. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.

(a) Corporate expenses include the components of defined benefit plan expense other than service cost including actuarial gains and losses.
 
(b) Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is operating income (loss) derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment, asset impairment charges and the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Operating income (loss) before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to evaluate the returns generated by FBHS and its business segments. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the Company from period to period. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
 
(c) Restructuring charges are costs incurred to implement significant cost reduction initiatives and include workforce reduction costs; "other charges" represent charges or gains directly related to restructuring initiatives that cannot be reported as restructuring under GAAP. Such charges or gains may include losses on disposal of inventories, trade receivables allowances from exiting product lines and accelerated depreciation resulting from the closure of facilities and gains or losses associated with the sale of closed facilities.
 
(d) Represents gain attributable to reduction of estimated liability for contingent consideration associated with a business acquisition.
 
(e) Represents actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans. Actuarial gains or losses in a period represent the difference between actual and actuarially assumed experience, principally related to liability discount rates and plan asset returns, as well as other actuarial assumptions including compensation rates, turnover rates, and health care cost trend rates. The Company recognizes actuarial gains or losses immediately in operating income to the extent they cumulatively exceed a "corridor." The corridor is equal to the greater of 10% of the fair value of plan assets or 10% of a plan's projected benefit obligation. Actuarial gains or losses are determined at required remeasurement dates which occur at least annually in the fourth quarter. Remeasurements due to plan amendments and settlements may also occur in interim periods during the year. Our operating income (loss) before charges/gains reflects our expected rate of return on pension plan assets which in a given period may materially differ from our actual return on plan assets. Our liability discount rates and plan asset returns are based upon difficult to predict fluctuations in global bond and equity markets that are not directly related to the Company's business. We believe that the exclusion of actuarial gains or losses from operating income (loss) before charges/gains provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying performance of the business from period to period that may be considered in conjunction with our operating income as measured on a GAAP basis. We present this supplemental information because such actuarial gains or losses may create volatility in our operating income that does not necessarily have an immediate corresponding impact on operating cash flow or the actual compensation and benefits provided to our employees. The table below sets forth additional supplemental information on the Company's historical actual and expected rate of return on plan assets, as well as discount rates used to value its defined benefit obligations:

Accelerated depreciation is included in restructuring and other charges.
 
(b) EBITDA before charges/gains is net income derived in accordance with GAAP excluding restructuring and other charges, income from a contingent acquisition consideration adjustment, asset impairment charges, the impact of income and expense from actuarial gains or losses associated with our defined benefit plans, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, interest expense, and income taxes. EBITDA before charges/gains is a measure not derived in accordance with GAAP. Management uses this measure to assess returns generated by FBHS. Management believes this measure provides investors with helpful supplemental information about the Company's ability to fund internal growth, make acquisitions and repay debt and related interest. This measure may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies.
