Operating performance of the second quarter and through June 30, 2012

During the course of the second quarter of 2012, Luxottica’s growth trend continued. In a more challenging macroeconomic climate, Luxottica achieved positive results in the majority of the geographic areas in which it operates, with excellent performance in North America, Australia and all emerging countries.

 

In the second quarter of 2012, the Group’s net sales rose by 15.2% at current exchange rates (+7.0% at constant exchange rates2), increasing from 1,633.5 million Euros to 1,882.2 million Euros.

 

During the half-year, revenue grew by 15.1% (+9.0% current exchange rates2) to 3,670.4 million Euros (3,189.6 million Euros during the same period in 2011).

 

This year, we have arrived at the half-way point very satisfied. In a very challenging period, we managed to grow our business by 15% with respect to last year. Our profitability grew in a more than proportional manner and once again we generated approximately 180 million Euros of free cash flow4,” commented Andrea Guerra, Chief Executive Officer of Luxottica. “We worked in a determined manner in all of the geographic areas in which we operate, achieving the objectives which we had pre-established. A balanced business model and a global geographic presence are the two pillars which have underpinned performance through today.

 

During these months, we recorded significant growth in the United States. All of our divisions contributed substantially to these results. The organizational changes we have made over the years are paying off. In particular, Sunglass Hut once again increased sales of 11.7% on a comparable store salesbasis. Sunglasses are a key driver of business growth in the United States for Luxottica. Despite the fact that the U.S. market is smaller and less mature as compared to Europe, it keeps growing.

 

In emerging markets, sales grew 35% in the first half of the year. We are growing our business everywhere and continuing to invest in order to transform our presence in an increasingly structural manner, in particular in China, India, Brazil, Mexico and Eastern Europe.

 

In Western Europe, the macroeconomic climate is different. During the first six months, we succeeded in delivering positive sales results once again (+1%). Performance can be divided into the following three parts: Continental Europe very good. France remained positive. Mediterranean Europe negative.

 

In Australia, OPSM achieved favorable comparable store sales5 results as compared to 2011.

 

We are confident that these half-year results constitute a solid foundation for reaching our full-year 2012 objectives,  although 2012 is clearly harder to predict”.

 

EBITDA4 for the second quarter of 2012 rose by 18.1% over the same period in 2011, going from 352.2 million Euros in 2011 to 415.9 million Euros in the current period. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA3,4 for the first half of 2012 reached 761.2 million Euros an increase over the 635.1 million Euros recorded for the same period in 2011.

 

Operating income for the second quarter of 2012 amounted to 332.6 million Euros (276.8 million Euros during the same period of the previous year, +20.2%). The Group’s operating margin grew even further rising from 16.9% in the second quarter of 2011 to 17.7% in the current quarter.

 

During the first sixth months of the year, adjusted operating income3,4 amounted to 590.6 million Euros, up by 22.0% as compared to 484.2 million Euros in the same period of 2011. The

 

2



 

Group’s adjusted operating margin3,4 therefore rose from 15.2% during this period in 2011 to 16.1% in the first half of 2012.

 

Net income for the second quarter of 2012 increased to 195.5 million Euros (162.1 million Euros in 2011, +20.6%), resulting in EPS (earnings per share) of 0.42 Euros (at an average €/US$ exchange rate of 1.2814). EPS in US dollars was 0.54 US$ in the period.

 

Also in the second quarter of 2012, the strict control of working capital enabled Luxottica to accumulate significant free cash flow in the amount of 180 million Euros for the quarter as compared to 154 million Euros of the same period of 2011. After having paid dividends during the quarter of approximately 227 million Euros, net debt as of June 30, 2012 was 2,164 million Euros (2,032 million at the end of 2011), with the ratio of net debt /adjusted EBITDA4 at 1.7, in line with expectations.

 

Wholesale division

The wholesale division achieved record results. Net sales registered in the second quarter 2012 are the best in the Group’s history.

 

In terms of sales performance in Luxottica’s key markets, results in North America and the emerging markets stand out, and in particular, in China, India, Brazil, Mexico and Eastern Europe. Very sound results were also achieved in Continental Europe and in particular in the UK, Germany and Nordic countries. Performance continued to be positive in France while it was negative in Italy and Spain.

 

This significant growth in the wholesale division is primarily due to the increasingly close relationship with clients and to the excellent reception of new collections. Our brand portfolio had a fundamental role in achieving these results: Ray-Ban, Oakley and the premium and luxury segment continued their double-digit growth trend in percentage.

 

Net sales for the wholesale division reached 788.2 million Euros from 704.0 million Euros in the second quarter of 2011 (+12.0% at current exchange rates and +8.4% at constant exchange rates2). On a half-year basis, net sales were 1,515.0 million Euros, improving by 12.6% at current exchange rates (+10.1% at constant exchange rates2) as compared to 1,345.1 million Euros in the first half of 2011.

 

Operating income grew to 207.7 million Euros, from 188.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 and the operating margin was 26.4%. In the first half of 2012, the operating margin was equal to 25.1% (25.0% in the corresponding period of last year).

 

Retail division

During the course of the second quarter, the growth trend continued in the retail division, in particular for Sunglass Hut and Oakley in North America and GMO in Latin America. Net sales for the division equaled 1,094.0 million Euros (929.6 million Euros in the second quarter of 2011, +17.7% at current exchange rates and +5.9% at constant exchange rates2).

 

For the first six months of 2012, net sales were 2,155.4 million Euros, improving by 16.9% with respect to 1,844.5 million Euros in the first half of 2011 (+8.2% at constant exchange rates2).

 

The division’s operating income went from 129.8 million Euros in the second quarter of 2011 to 169.5 million Euros in the same period in 2012 and the operating margin accordingly grew to 15.5% from 14.0% for the period. On a half-yearly basis, the adjusted operating margin3,4 was equal to 13.6% (12.3% in the first half-year of 2011).

 

LensCrafters experienced a quarter full of ups and downs. The implementation of a new IT platform generated a temporary slowdown in store transactions, which was fully accounted for

 

3



 

in the Division’s forecast for the period. The quarter ended with an increase in comparable store sales5 of approximately 1%.

 

For the first six months of 2012, LensCrafters profitability was the best as compared to recent years.

 

Once again, Sunglass Hut performance was exceptional. The Group’s sun specialty chain that operates in a number of geographic areas posted overall comparable store sales5 improving by 10.6% in the second quarter, with particularly positive performance in North America, emerging markets, South Africa and Australia.

 

In Australia, the plan to develop OPSM and the reorganization of smaller retail brands have contributed to the division’s positive results. The quarter ended with growth in total OPSM net sales of 6.3%, despite store closings in the region, and comparable same store sales5 increasing by 8.0% in the period.

 

The Luxottica optical retail business in the region grew in profitability by 23.6 % during the second quarter of 2012 as compared to results generated by this business in the same period of 2011.

Non-IAS/IFRS Measures: Adjusted measures

 

In order to provide a supplemental comparison of current period results of operations to prior periods, we have adjusted for certain non-recurring transactions or events.

 

We have made such adjustments to the following measures: EBITDA, EBITDA margin, operating income, operating margin, net income and earnings per share.

 

For comparative purposes, management has adjusted each of the foregoing measures by excluding non-recurring OPSM reorganization costs of approximately €21.4 million.

In addition, we have made adjustments to fiscal year 2011 measures for comparative purposes as described in the footnotes to the tables that contain such fiscal year 2011 data.

 

The Company believes that these adjusted measures are useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance compared with that of other companies in its industry because they exclude the impact of non-recurring items that are not relevant to the Company’s operating performance.

 

The adjusted measures referenced above are not measures of performance in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IAS/IFRS).  We include these adjusted comparisons in this presentation in order to provide a supplemental view of operations that excludes items that are unusual, infrequent or unrelated to our ongoing core operations.

 

These adjusted measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for items appearing on our financial statements prepared in accordance with IAS/IFRS.  Rather, these non-IAS/IFRS measures should be used as a supplement to IAS/IFRS results to assist the reader in better understanding the operational performance of the Company.  The Company cautions that these adjusted measures are not defined terms under IAS/IFRS and their definitions should be carefully reviewed and understood by investors.  Investors should be aware that Luxottica Group’s method of calculating these adjusted measures may differ from methods used by other companies.

 

The Company recognizes that there are limitations in the usefulness of adjusted comparisons due to the subjective nature of items excluded by management in calculating adjusted comparisons.  We compensate for the foregoing limitation by using these adjusted measures as a comparative tool, together with IAS/IFRS measurements, to assist in the evaluation of our operating performance.

 

See the tables on the following pages for a reconciliation of the adjusted measures discussed above to their most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measures or, in the case of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, to EBITDA and EBITDA margin, respectively, which are also non-IAS/IFRS measures. For a discussion of EBITDA and EBITDA margin and a reconciliation of EBITDA and EBITDA margin to their most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measures, see the tables on the pages immediately following the reconciliation of the adjusted measures.

Non-IAS/IFRS Measure: EBITDA and EBITDA margin

 

EBITDA represents net income before non-controlling interest, taxes, other income/expense, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA margin means EBITDA divided by net sales.

 

The Company believes that EBITDA is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance compared with that of other companies in its industry. Our calculation of EBITDA allows us to compare our operating results with those of other companies without giving effect to financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company’s business.

 

EBITDA and EBITDA margin are not measures of performance under International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IAS/IFRS).

 

We include them in this presentation in order to:

 

·                  improve transparency for investors;

·                  assist investors in their assessment of the Company’s operating performance and its ability to refinance its debt as it matures and incur additional indebtedness to invest in new business opportunities;

·                  assist investors in their assessment of the Company’s cost of debt;

·                  ensure that these measures are fully understood in light of how the Company evaluates its operating results and leverage;

·                  properly define the metrics used and confirm their calculation; and

·                  share these measures with all investors at the same time.

 

EBITDA and EBITDA margin are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for items appearing on our financial statements prepared in accordance with IAS/IFRS. Rather, these non-IAS/IFRS measures should be used as a supplement to IAS/IFRS results to assist the reader in better understanding the operational performance of the Company. The Company cautions that these measures are not defined terms under IAS/IFRS and their definitions should be carefully reviewed and understood by investors. Investors should be aware that Luxottica Group’s method of calculating EBITDA may differ from methods used by other companies.  The Company recognizes that the usefulness of EBITDA has certain limitations, including:

 

·                  EBITDA does not include interest expense.  Because we have borrowed money in order to finance our operations, interest expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate profits and cash flows. Therefore, any measure that excludes interest expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not include depreciation and amortization expense.  Because we use capital assets, depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate profits. Therefore, any measure that excludes depreciation and expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not include provision for income taxes.  Because the payment of income taxes is a necessary element of our costs, any measure that excludes tax expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not reflect cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

·                  EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; and

·                  EBITDA does not allow us to analyze the effect of certain recurring and non-recurring items that materially affect our net income or loss.

 

We compensate for the foregoing limitations by using EBITDA as a comparative tool, together with IAS/IFRS measurements, to assist in the evaluation of our operating performance and leverage.

 

See the table on the following page for a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measure, as well as the calculation of EBITDA margin on net sales.

Non-IAS/IFRS Measure: Net Debt to EBITDA ratio

 

Net debt to EBITDA ratio:  Net debt means the sum of bank overdrafts, current portion of long-term debt and long-term debt, less cash.  EBITDA represents net income before non-controlling interest, taxes, other income/expense, depreciation and amortization. The Company believes that EBITDA is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance compared with that of other companies in its industry. Our calculation of EBITDA allows us to compare our operating results with those of other companies without giving effect to financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending, which items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company’s business.  The ratio of net debt to EBITDA is a measure used by management to assess the Company’s level of leverage, which affects our ability to refinance our debt as it matures and incur additional indebtedness to invest in new business opportunities. The ratio also allows management to assess the cost of existing debt since it affects the interest rates charged by the Company’s lenders.

 

EBITDA and ratio of net debt to EBITDA are not measures of performance under International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IAS/IFRS).

We include them in this presentation in order to:

 

·                  improve transparency for investors;

·                  assist investors in their assessment of the Company’s operating performance and its ability to refinance its debt as it matures and incur additional indebtedness to invest in new business opportunities;

·                  assist investors in their assessment of the Company’s cost of debt;

·                  ensure that these measures are fully understood in light of how the Company evaluates its operating results and leverage;

·                  properly define the metrics used and confirm their calculation; and

·                  share these measures with all investors at the same time.

 

EBITDA and ratio of net debt to EBITDA are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for items appearing on our financial statements prepared in accordance with IAS/IFRS. Rather, these non-IAS/IFRS measures should be used as a supplement to IAS/IFRS results to assist the reader in better understanding the operational performance of the Company. The Company cautions that these measures are not defined terms under IAS/IFRS and their definitions should be carefully reviewed and understood by investors. Investors should be aware that Luxottica Group’s method of calculating EBITDA and the ratio of net debt to EBITDA may differ from methods used by other companies. The Company recognizes that the usefulness of EBITDA and the ratio of net debt to EBITDA as evaluative tools may have certain limitations, including:

 

·                  EBITDA does not include interest expense.  Because we have borrowed money in order to finance our operations, interest expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate profits and cash flows. Therefore, any measure that excludes interest expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not include depreciation and amortization expense.  Because we use capital assets, depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of our costs and ability to generate profits. Therefore, any measure that excludes depreciation and expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not include provision for income taxes.  Because the payment of income taxes is a necessary element of our costs, any measure that excludes tax expense may have material limitations;

·                  EBITDA does not reflect cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;

·                  EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs;

·                  EBITDA does not allow us to analyze the effect of certain recurring and non-recurring items that materially affect our net income or loss; and

·                  The ratio of net debt to EBITDA is net of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments, thereby reducing our debt position.

 

Because we may not be able to use our cash to reduce our debt on a dollar-for-dollar basis, this measure may have material limitations. We compensate for the foregoing limitations by using EBITDA and the ratio of net debt to EBITDA as two of several comparative tools, together with IAS/IFRS measurements, to assist in the evaluation of our operating performance and leverage.

 

See the table on the following page for a reconciliation of net debt to long-term debt, which is the most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measure, as well as the calculation of the ratio of net debt to EBITDA. For a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measure, see the table on the preceding pages.

Non-IAS/IFRS Measures: Free Cash Flow

 

  Free cash flow net represents net income before non-controlling interest, taxes, other income/expense, depreciation and amortization (i.e. EBITDA — see table on the earlier page) plus or minus the decrease/(increase) in working capital over the prior period, less capital expenditures, plus or minus interest income/(expense) and extraordinary items, minus taxes paid. The Company believes that free cash flow is useful to both management and investors in evaluating the Company’s operating performance compared with other companies in its industry.  In particular, our calculation of free cash flow provides a clearer picture of the Company’s ability to generate net cash from operations, which is used for mandatory debt service requirements, to fund discretionary investments, pay dividends or pursue other strategic opportunities.

 

Free cash flow is not a measure of performance under International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IAS/IFRS).

 

We include it in this presentation in order to:

 

·       Improve transparency for investors;

·       Assist investors in their assessment of the Company’s operating performance and its ability to generate cash from operations in excess of its cash expenses;

·       Ensure that this measure is fully understood in light of how the Company evaluates its operating results;

·       Properly define the metrics used and confirm their calculation; and

·       Share this measure with all investors at the same time.

 

Free cash flow is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for items appearing on our financial statements prepared in accordance with IAS/IFRS. Rather, this non-IAS/IFRS measure should be used as a supplement to IAS/IFRS results to assist the reader in better understanding the operational performance of the Company. The Company cautions that this measure is not a defined term under IAS/IFRS and its definition should be carefully reviewed and understood by investors. Investors should be aware that Luxottica Group’s method of calculation of free cash flow may differ from methods used by other companies. The Company recognizes that the usefulness of free cash flow as an evaluative tool may have certain limitations, including:

 

·       The manner in which the Company calculates free cash flow may differ from that of other companies, which limits its usefulness as a comparative measure;

·       Free cash flow does not represent the total increase or decrease in the net debt balance for the period since it excludes, among other things, cash used for funding discretionary investments and to pursue strategic opportunities during the period and any impact of the exchange rate changes; and

·       Free cash flow can be subject to adjustment at the Company’s discretion if the Company takes steps or adopts policies that increase or diminish its current liabilities and/or changes to working capital.

 

  We compensate for the foregoing limitations by using free cash flow as one of several comparative tools, together with IAS/IFRS measurements, to assist in the evaluation of our operating performance.

 

  See the table on the following page for a reconciliation of free cash flow to EBITDA and the table on the earlier page for a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, which is the most directly comparable IAS/IFRS financial measure.
