  Stanley Black & Decker Reports 1Q 2014 Results  Business Wire  NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- April 24, 2014  Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) today announced first quarter 2014 financial results.    *1Q’14 Revenues Up 7% To $2.6 Billion; Organic Growth Reached 4%   *Operating Margin Expanded 200 Basis Points; Excluding Charges Operating     Margin Expanded 30 Basis Points To 12.1%   *1Q’14 Diluted GAAP EPS Was $1.05; Excluding Charges, 1Q’14 Diluted EPS Was     $1.07   *Increasing Low End Of 2014 FY EPS Guidance Range To:         *$5.23 To $5.38 On A GAAP Basis (From $5.18 to $5.38)        *$5.35 To $5.50, Excluding Charges (From $5.30 To $5.50)  1Q’14 Key Points:    *Net sales for the period were $2.6 billion, up 7% versus the prior year,     attributable to volume (+4%) and acquisitions (+4%), partially offset by     currency (-1%). Price was relatively flat for the quarter.   *The gross margin rate for the quarter was 36.4%. Excluding charges the     gross margin rate was also 36.4%, down from the prior year rate of 37.2%,     as favorable volume and productivity were more than offset by unfavorable     currency of $25 million and Security margins.   *SG&A expenses were 24.5% of sales. Excluding charges, SG&A expenses were     24.3% of sales, compared to a 1Q’13 level of 25.5%, reflecting the impacts     of volume and cost actions implemented in 4Q’13 to improve operating     leverage.    *Operating margin was 11.8% of sales. Excluding charges, operating margin     was 12.1% of sales, up 30 basis points from the 1Q’13 operating margin of     11.8%.   *The tax rate was 21.9%. Excluding charges, the tax rate was 22.1%, 520     basis points higher than the 1Q’13 rate which was favorably impacted by     the acceleration of certain tax credits and the positive impact of U.S.     tax legislation enacted in January 2013.    *Working capital turns for the quarter were 5.9, up 0.1 turns from 1Q’13.     Free cash flow, which was relatively consistent with the prior year, was     an outflow of $210 million, including $52 million of one-time payments.  Stanley Black & Decker’s Chairman and CEO, John F. Lundgren, commented, “Our focus throughout 2014 remains on executing our growth plans and capital allocation actions to enhance profitability and operating leverage while we drive long-term sustainable improvements to the Company’s cash flow return on investment.”  “Our performance in the first quarter of 2014 reflected the benefits of the organic growth investments we made in 2013 and the cost actions we announced late last year. During the quarter we achieved solid organic growth in our CDIY and Industrial segments despite a very challenging external environment impacted by continued emerging markets volatility and to a lesser extent North America weather. Within Security, we are seeing traction with the actions we are taking to improve performance and continue to believe that we will see margin improvement in the second half of 2014.”  1Q’14 Segment Results  ($ in M)      1Q' 14 Segment Results                                                            Profit             Profit       Profit Rate              Sales     Profit    Charges^1                    Rate                                                                 Ex-Charges^1                    Ex-Charges^1                                                                     CDIY          $1,216    $169.2    $0.4         $169.6          13.9%     13.9%                                                                     Industrial    $852      $130.3    $2.2         $132.5          15.3%     15.6%                                                                     Security      $573      $49.6     $2.3         $51.9           8.7%      9.1%  ^1 M&A charges primarily pertaining to synergy attainment    *In CDIY, net sales increased 6% versus 1Q’13 as a result of volume (+7%)     and acquisitions (+1%), partially offset by currency (-2%). Price was down     1% for the quarter. Solid organic growth was achieved in all regions,     leveraging our focus on innovation, emerging markets, and brand     development. Europe posted strong organic growth of 11%, driven by     continued share gains from successful new product introductions across key     regions and an expanding retail footprint in certain markets. Emerging     markets organic growth was up 7% against continued challenging economic     and political environments with particularly strong growth in Brazil and     Argentina. Despite some pressure from weather, North American organic     growth was up 5%, due in part to our recent “Built In The USA” initiative.     Excluding charges, overall segment profit was 13.9%, lower than the 1Q’13     rate of 14.7% as expected, given significant currency pressures in Canada     and the emerging markets amounting to $20 million, and carryover     investments in organic growth initiatives which offset volume,     productivity and SG&A cost reductions.   *Net sales in the Industrial segment rose 16% versus 1Q’13 as a result of     volume (+5%) and acquisitions (+12%), partially offset by currency (-1%).     Pricing was relatively flat for the quarter. Engineered Fastening posted     6% organic growth driven by strong global automotive revenues,     particularly in Europe and Asia, which resulted in growth at nearly two     times the rate of light vehicle production. The Infastech integration     crossed the one-year mark at the end of February and remains on-plan to     achieve both earnings and cost synergy targets. Organic sales for the     Industrial and Automotive Repair (IAR) business were up 5% as a result of     higher volumes in IAR’s European business, and strength within the North     American Mac Tools mobile distribution and the MRO vending operations. Oil     & Gas organic growth was up 11% due primarily to North American onshore     and global offshore operations. Although Oil & Gas organic growth     continues to be strong, the pace of growth has slowed versus recent     quarters as expected, and will continue to do so over the next two to     three quarters due to a temporary lull in major onshore pipeline projects.  Overall Industrial segment profit excluding charges was 15.6%, up 170 basis points from the 1Q’13 rate of 13.9% reflecting favorable volume, productivity gains, cost synergies and cost actions, partially offset by currency and organic growth investments.    *Net sales in Security decreased 3% versus 1Q’13 due to volume (-5%),     partially offset by pricing (+1%) and currency (+1%). Organic growth     within Security’s North America and Emerging Market businesses was down 1%     as performance of a number of North America-based operations were     adversely impacted by severe weather conditions, particularly in January     and February. Security Europe declined 7% organically due primarily to     lower installation and recurring revenues in various regions, most notably     Spain and France. Although the organic volume decline in Security Europe     was greater than expected, orders and backlog continue to build and     importantly, recurring revenue attrition levels were slightly below 15% in     the first quarter, reflecting an improvement both sequentially and versus     the prior year’s first quarter.  Security segment profit rate excluding charges was 9.1%, down 170 basis points from the 1Q’13 rate of 10.8% and 310 basis points lower than the 4Q’13 rate. The sequential decline in the rate relates primarily to the seasonality of the Security segment’s business which historically reports a lower operating margin in the first quarter of each year. The year over year decline in the rate is due primarily to installation field inefficiencies and lower volumes in the Security Europe business, as margins within Security North America were up 40 basis points versus prior year.  President and Chief Operating Officer, James M. Loree, commented, “Our CDIY and Industrial businesses continue to demonstrate exceptional performance, having achieved strong organic growth driven by an improved European landscape, healthy automotive demand and our organic growth investments which positioned us for share gain in the quarter. Not only did we achieve impressive top-line results, but the operating margin performance of these businesses was also noteworthy as we mitigated $25 million of currency headwinds with our sharp focus on costs.  “As for Security, we are diligently executing revenue and margin improvement actions to improve performance within this segment. The North American improvements are taking hold and, as expected, the business is positioned to trend towards our long-term margin expectations. The revenue and operating improvements in Europe mirror the successful business model we have established in North America, and while we are gaining traction by adopting the more centralized business model in Europe, reorienting this organization is not a quick transition. We are encouraged by the order growth and attrition reduction in the European business, as well as the progress on key process fixes. We must now translate these accomplishments into improved financial results and expect to see positive operating margin growth from Security in the second half of 2014. We have the right team in place and are focused on the right issues to deliver a turn-around in this business.”  Revising Of 2014 Outlook  Donald Allan Jr., Senior Vice President and CFO commented, “We are raising the low end of our previously communicated 2014 EPS outlook to $5.35 to $5.50 on an adjusted basis or $5.23 to $5.38 on a GAAP basis, as we expect stronger full year results within our Industrial businesses and indirect cost savings across the Company to more than offset the impact of a slower improvement trajectory for our Security Europe operation. We also continue to believe that our 2014 organic growth will be 4%, and that our free cash flow will approximate $675 million inclusive of approximately $250 million of one-time payments primarily relating to 2013 restructuring actions. As planned, for the second quarter we would expect organic growth to modestly decelerate given the tougher comparables in CDIY and Industrial with EPS for the first half of 2014 approximating 45% of estimated full year earnings consistent with the prior two years.  “In addition to continuing to drive organic growth and improving Security margins, enhancing our operating leverage is a key priority for 2014. We demonstrated this in certain businesses in the first quarter and to ensure we continue to accomplish this across the Company, we are focused on effectively executing our cost reduction actions, sharpening our focus on indirect expenses and taking price to protect margins. We remain committed to our capital allocation plan which provides for a strong and growing dividend as well as the return of approximately $1 billion of capital to shareholders through 2015. These initiatives combined with modest debt deleveraging are expected to improve capital returns to value accretive levels for our Company and improve our cash flow return on investment by 250 basis points through 2015.”  Merger And Acquisition (M&A) One-Time Charges  Total one-time charges in 1Q’14 of $3.9 million (net of a $3.7 million restructuring credit) primarily relate to integration and employee-related matters. Gross margin includes $1.1 million of these one-time charges while SG&A includes $6.3 million. $4.9 million of these costs that impact the Company’s operating margin are included in segment results, with the remainder in corporate overhead. Also included in one-time charges are $0.2 million in Other, net.  The company will host a conference call with investors today, Thursday, April 24, at 8:00am ET.

In 3Q’13, the Company classified two small businesses within the Security and Industrial segments as held for sale based on management's intention to sell these businesses. The business within the Industrial segment was sold in February 2014. The operating results of these businesses have been reported as discontinued operations for 1Q’14 and 1Q’13. In addition, the Company sold its Hardware & Home Improvement business (HHI), including the residential portion of Tong Lung in December of 2012. The sale of this business occurred in a First and Second Closing. The First closing, which excluded the residential portion of Tong Lung, occurred on December 17, 2012. The Second closing in which the residential portion of Tong Lung was sold occurred on April 8, 2013. The operating results of the residential portion of Tong Lung have been reported as discontinued operations for 1Q’13. Total sales reported as discontinued operations were $7.7 million and $32.9 million for 1Q’14 and 1Q’13, respectively.  The Company recast 2013 segment net sales and profit between the CDIY and Industrial segments to align reporting with the current management of the Company’s operations in the emerging markets to be comparable with the current year presentation. There is no impact to the consolidated financial statements of the Company as a result of this segment realignment. The recast results for the quarterly and year-to-date periods of 2013 are shown on page 14.  Organic sales growth is defined as total sales growth less the sales of companies acquired in the past twelve months and any foreign currency impacts. Operating marginis defined as sales less cost of sales and selling, general and administrative expenses. Management uses operating margin and its percentage of net sales as key measures to assess the performance of the Company as a whole, as well as the related measuresat the segment level. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less capital and software expenditures. Management considers free cash flow an important indicator of its liquidity, as well as its ability to fund future growth and to provide a return to the shareowners. Free cash flow does not include deductions for mandatory debt service, other borrowing activity, discretionary dividends on the Company’s common stock and business acquisitions, among other items. The normalized statement of operations and business segment information, as reconciled to GAAP on pages 12 and 13 for 2014 and 2013, are considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company’s operating performance and earnings results aside from the material impact of the one-time charges and payments associated with the Black & Decker merger, the Niscayah and Infastech acquisitions and other smaller acquisitions of the Company. Normalized free cash flow, as reconciled from the associated GAAP measures on page 10 for 2014 and 2013 are considered meaningful pro forma metrics to aid the understanding of the Company’s cash flow performance aside from the material impact of the M&A-related payments and charges.

Management considers free cash flow an important measure of its liquidity, as well as its ability to fund future growth and to provide a return to the shareowners. Free cash flow does not include deductions for mandatory debt service, other borrowing activity, discretionary dividends on the Company’s common stock and business acquisitions, among other items.

There is no impact to the consolidated financial statements of the Company as a result of this segment realignment.  ^2Merger and acquisition-related charges, as reported, relate primarily to the Black & Decker merger and Niscayah and Infastech acquisitions, including facility closure-related charges, employee-related charges and integration costs.  ^3The normalized 2013 business segment information adjusted for the previously mentioned realignment of certain segment net sales and segment profit from the CDIY segment to the Industrial segment, as reconciled to GAAP as adjusted above, is considered relevant to aid analysis of the Company’s segment profit results aside from the material impact of the merger and acquisition-related charges.
