Coty’s performance in fiscal 1Q17

Coty reported fiscal 1Q17 net revenue of $1.08 billion—a YoY (year-over-year) fall of 2.7%, as compared to $1.11 billion in fiscal 1Q16. The fall was due to negative foreign exchange and the impact on its underlying business by resources used for the closure of the P&G Specialty Beauty Business merger.

However, the fall in revenue was partially offset by revenue from its Brazil acquisition. Revenues from its Fragrances, Color Cosmetics, and Skin & Body Care segments fell 10.1%, 9.8%, and 6.6%, respectively, between fiscal 1Q16 and fiscal 1Q17. The company also reported revenues of $73.0 million from the Brazilian acquisition in fiscal 1Q17.

Coty’s gross profit margin and operating margin fell 130 basis points and 300 basis points, respectively.

Net income, EPS, and cash

Coty’s net income and EPS (earnings per share) fell to $0.0 million and $0.00, respectively, in fiscal 1Q17, as compared to $125.7 million and $0.34, respectively, in fiscal 1Q16. It reported adjusted EPS of $0.23 in fiscal 1Q17—a YoY fall of 64.1%.

Coty’s cash and cash equivalents and inventories rose 1.5% and 9.0%, respectively, between fiscal 4Q16 and fiscal 1Q17. The company expects four-year synergies and working capital of $750 million and $500 million, respectively. It expects adjusted EPS of at least $1.53 in fiscal 2020.
