Rhea-AI Summary

WD-40 Company (NASDAQ:WDFC) reported a 9% increase in global net sales for Q3 2024, totaling $155 million. Maintenance product sales rose by 10% to $147.2 million, significantly contributing to total sales. Gross margin improved to 53.1% from 50.6% in the previous year. However, operating expenses, including selling, general, and administrative, climbed by 19%, while advertising expenses surged by 22%. Net income increased by 5% to $19.8 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $1.46, up from $1.38. The company reaffirmed its FY 2024 guidance, projecting net sales between $570 million and $600 million, and EPS between $5.00 and $5.30. A quarterly dividend of $0.88 per share was declared, payable on July 31, 2024.

Positive
  • Global net sales increased by 9% to $155 million.
  • Maintenance product sales rose by 10% to $147.2 million.
  • Gross margin improved to 53.1% from 50.6%.
  • Net income increased by 5% to $19.8 million.
  • Diluted EPS rose to $1.46 from $1.38.
  • Reiterated FY 2024 guidance predicts net sales between $570 million and $600 million.
  • Declared a quarterly dividend of $0.88 per share.
Negative
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by 19%.
  • Advertising expenses surged by 22%.

The recent financial results from WD-40 showcase a solid performance marked by a 9% growth in total net sales compared to the same quarter last year. This growth, even after adjusting for currency fluctuations, demonstrates the company's resilience in fluctuating markets. Gross margin improvement to 53.1% from 50.6% is particularly noteworthy as it signifies enhanced operational efficiency and cost management. Significant growth in key regions such as the EIMEA segment, which saw a 13% increase in sales, underlines a strong global market presence.

However, it's important to monitor the 19% increase in Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses, which might put pressure on net margins if it continues. The company's strategy to divest less profitable segments, such as the homecare and cleaning products in the US and UK, could streamline operations and focus resources on higher-margin products. The sustained dividend and share repurchase plan indicate a commitment to returning value to shareholders.

From a retail investor's perspective, the steady performance and reiteration of the fiscal year guidance provide a stable outlook. Yet, the high SG&A expenses need to be closely watched as they can affect profitability.

WD-40's growth is largely driven by its core maintenance products, which accounted for 95% of total sales. With a strategic focus on high-demand regions like Latin America and China, the company is capitalizing on emerging markets where there is a growing need for their products. The fact that WD-40 Multi-Use Product sales increased by 11% and WD-40 Specialist by 13% indicates strong brand positioning and market penetration.

It's also important to note the company's effective pricing strategy and brand building efforts in regions like Asia-Pacific, which saw a 30% increase in WD-40 Specialist sales. These efforts underscore a well-executed marketing strategy that could potentially drive long-term growth. The progress in Brazil and other direct markets highlights the company's ability to adapt and grow in diverse economic environments.

For investors, the focus should be on the sustainability of this growth and the ability to continue expanding in new markets while maintaining profitability. The consistency in product demand across diverse regions provides a buffer against localized economic downturns.

Third Quarter Highlights by Segment:

Americas

  • The Americas segment represented 49 percent of total net sales in the third quarter.
  • Net sales in the Americas increased 6 percent in the third quarter compared to the prior year fiscal quarter primarily due to an increase in net sales of WD-40® Multi-Use Product of 7 percent. WD-40® Multi-Use Product sales increased most significantly in Latin America, which were up $5.4 million, and were partially offset by lower sales in the United States and Canada, which were down by $1.0 and $0.3 million, respectively.
  • WD-40 Specialist® increased 10 percent primarily due to new distribution and the timing of customer orders in the United States.

EIMEA

  • The EIMEA segment represented 38 percent of total net sales in the third quarter.
  • Net sales in EIMEA increased 13 percent in the third quarter compared to the prior year fiscal quarter primarily due to an increase in net sales of WD-40® Multi-Use Product of 17 percent. WD-40® Multi-Use Product sales increased most significantly in France and Italy, which were up $1.4 million and $1.2 million, respectively, as well as Benelux(4) and Poland, which were each up $1.1 million from the prior quarter of the previous fiscal year.
  • Net sales of WD-40 Specialist® increased 11 percent primarily due to the combined impact of higher sales volume and the favorable impact of price increases across the regions.
  • Translation of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries’ results from their functional currencies to U.S. dollars had a favorable impact on sales in EIMEA for the current quarter. On a non-GAAP constant currency basis, net sales in EIMEA would have been $57.8 million for the third quarter.

Asia-Pacific

  • The Asia-Pacific segment represented 13 percent of total net sales in the third quarter.
  • Net sales in Asia-Pacific increased 14 percent in the third quarter compared to the prior year fiscal quarter primarily due to an increase in sales of WD-40® Multi-Use Product of 11 percent. WD-40® Multi-Use Product sales increased most significantly in China and the Asia distributor markets, which were up $1.0 million and $0.4 million, respectively.
  • Net sales of WD-40 Specialist® increased 30 percent primarily due to successful brand building in certain regions and the timing of customer orders.
  • Homecare and cleaning product sales, which remain strategic focus for the Company in this segment, increased 28 percent due to higher sales volume in Australia attributable to successful promotional activities and improved packaging.
  • Translation of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries’ results from their functional currencies to U.S. dollars had an unfavorable impact on sales in Asia-Pacific for the current quarter. On a non-GAAP constant currency basis, net sales in Asia-Pacific would have been $20.9 million for the third quarter.

  • Net sales of maintenance products, which are considered the primary strategic focus for the Company, represented 95 percent of total net sales in the third quarter. Net sales of maintenance products increased 10 percent in the third quarter when compared to the prior year fiscal quarter primarily due to higher sales of WD-40® Multi-Use Product in EIMEA, Latin America and China.
  • Net sales of homecare and cleaning products represented 5 percent of total net sales in the third quarter. Net sales of the homecare and cleaning products declined 6 percent in the third quarter when compared to the prior year fiscal quarter primarily due to lower sales of homecare and cleaning products in the United States and the United Kingdom, which were partially offset by higher sales in Australia. The Company has previously disclosed its intent to actively pursue the sale of its homecare and cleaning product portfolios in the United States and United Kingdom.

Dividend and Share Repurchase Update

  • On June 18, 2024, the Company’s board of directors declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.88 per share payable on July 31, 2024 to stockholders of record at the close of business on July 19, 2024.
  • On June 19, 2023, the Company’s board approved a share repurchase plan that became effective on September 1, 2023. Under the plan, the Company is authorized to acquire up to $50.0 million of its outstanding shares through August 31, 2025.
  • During the period from September 1, 2023 through the end of the third quarter, the Company repurchased 34,250 shares at a total cost of $8.1 million under this $50.0 million plan.
  • The timing and amount of repurchases under the plan are based on terms and conditions as may be acceptable to the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer, subject to present loan covenants, and in compliance with all laws and regulations applicable thereto.

Reiterated Fiscal Year 2024 Guidance

The Company reiterated its guidance for fiscal year 2024:

  • Net sales growth is projected to be between 6 and 12 percent with net sales expected to be between $570 million and $600 million on a non-GAAP constant currency basis.
  • Gross margin for the full year is expected to be between 51.5 and 53 percent.
  • Advertising and promotion investments are projected to be between 5 and 6 percent of net sales.
  • The provision for income tax is expected to be between 23 and 24 percent.
  • Net income is projected to be between $67.7 million and $71.8 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share is expected to be between $5.00 and $5.30 based on an estimated 13.6 million weighted average shares outstanding.

“We continue to make progress on the divestiture of the U.S. and U.K. homecare and cleaning product portfolios. We have engaged an investment bank and they are currently in discussions with potential suitors on our behalf. In addition, we have made significant progress on gross margin this fiscal year and continue to move closer to our 55 percent target,” said Sara Hyzer, WD-40 Company’s vice president, finance and chief financial officer. “We remain on track to meet our fiscal year 2024 guidance but we are currently projecting that we will end the fiscal year closer to the upper end of our range for gross margin.”

This guidance is expressed in good faith and is based on management’s current view of anticipated results. Unanticipated inflationary headwinds and other unforeseen events may further affect the Company’s financial results. Net sales presented on a non-GAAP constant currency basis use weighted average fiscal year 2023 foreign currency exchange rates.

In order to show the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on our results of operations, we have included constant currency disclosures, where necessary, in this press release. Constant currency disclosures represent the translation of our current fiscal year revenues, expenses and net income from the functional currencies of our subsidiaries to U.S. dollars using the exchange rates in effect for the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year. Results on a constant currency basis are not in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“non-GAAP”) and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We use results on a constant currency basis as one of the measures to understand our operating results and evaluate our performance in comparison to prior periods in order to enhance the visibility of the underlying business trends, excluding the impact of translation arising from foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure provides investors with additional financial information that should be considered when assessing our underlying business performance and trends. However, reference to constant currency basis should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
