Business Segment Highlights

The Company’s business segments include North America and International. Corporate operating expenses are not included in either of the business segments and are presented separately as a reconciling item to consolidated results.

On a constant currency basis(1), North America net sales increased 6.4% driven by the success of new products and expanded distribution.

GAAP operating margin was 15.5% as compared to 10.2% in the second quarter of 2015, driven primarily by gross margin improvement.

North America adjusted gross margin(1) improved 340 basis points to 40.0% as compared to 36.6% in the second quarter of 2015. Gross margin and adjusted gross margin(1) improvements were primarily driven by operational improvements, pricing actions and product mix. These factors were slightly offset by new product launch costs. The increase in North America gross margin and adjusted gross margin(1) as well as an improvement in the Company’s operating leverage drove a 430 basis point increase in the Company’s North America adjusted operating margin(1) to 15.5% as compared to 11.2% in the second quarter of 2015.

International net sales increased 1.6% to $136.2 million from $134.1 million in the second quarter of 2015. On a constant currency basis(1), International net sales increased 7.6%.

GAAP operating margin was 17.0% as compared to 17.7% in the second quarter 2015, driven primarily by the decrease in gross margin.

International adjusted gross margin(1) declined 120 basis points to 51.1% as compared to 52.3% in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in gross margin and adjusted gross margin(1) was primarily driven by costs associated with new product introductions and product mix. These factors were slightly offset by an improvement in channel mix.

Corporate GAAP operating expense decreased 27.5% to $26.3 million from $36.3 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in operating expense was primarily driven by $11.7 million incurred in the second quarter of 2015 related to the Company’s 2015 Annual Meeting and executive management transition and related retention compensation, which were not incurred in the second quarter of 2016.

Corporate adjusted operating expense(1) increased 6.2% to $25.7 million from $24.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. The increase in Corporate adjusted operating expense was primarily related to increases in performance related compensation expense.

The Company provides information regarding adjusted net income, adjusted EPS, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating income (expense), adjusted operating margin, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, consolidated funded debt and consolidated funded debt less qualified cash, which are not recognized terms under GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to net income and earnings per share as a measure of operating performance or total debt. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors with performance measures that better  reflect the Company’s underlying operations and trends, including  trends in changes in margin and operating expenses, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from net income and operating income. The adjustments management makes to derive the non-GAAP measures include adjustments to exclude items that  may cause short-term fluctuations in the nearest GAAP measure, but which management does not consider to be the fundamental attributes or primary drivers of its business, including costs associated with its 2013 acquisition of Sealy Corporation and its subsidiaries and the exclusion of other costs associated with the 2015 Annual Meeting (including executive management transition and retention compensation), legal settlements, costs associated with the completion of the new credit facility and senior notes offering in the second quarter of 2016 and other costs.

The Company believes that exclusion of these items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the Company’s underlying results from continuing operations and trends, and management uses these measures along with the corresponding GAAP financial measures to manage the Company’s business, to evaluate its consolidated and segment performance compared to prior periods and the marketplace,  to establish operational goals and to provide continuity to investors for comparability purposes. These non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental in nature and should not be construed as more significant than comparable measures defined by U.S. GAAP. Limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP measures include that these measures do not present all of the amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. For more information about these non-GAAP measures and a reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure, please refer to the reconciliations on the following pages.

Constant Currency Information

In this press release the Company refers to, and in other press releases and other communications with investors the Company may refer to, net sales or earnings or other historical financial information on a “constant currency basis”, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. These references to constant currency basis do not include operational impacts that could result from fluctuations in foreign currency rates. To provide information on a constant currency basis, the applicable financial results are adjusted based on a simple mathematical model that translates current period results in local currency using the comparable prior year period’s currency conversion rate. This approach is used for countries where the functional currency is the local country currency. This information is provided so that certain financial results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of business performance.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS

A reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted net income and a calculation of adjusted EPS is provided below. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the impact of various adjustments as described in the footnotes at the end of this release.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP net income to adjusted net income and a calculation of adjusted EPS for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

A reconciliation of GAAP gross profit and gross margin to adjusted gross profit and gross margin, respectively, and GAAP operating income (expense) and operating margin to adjusted operating income (expense) and operating margin, respectively, is provided below. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with additional useful information with respect to the impact of various adjustments as described in the footnotes at the end of this release.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company’s reported GAAP gross profit and operating income (expense) to the calculation of adjusted gross profit and operating income (expense) for the three months ended June 30, 2016:

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Consolidated funded debt less qualified cash

The following reconciliations are provided below:

Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP measures provides investors with useful information with respect to the Company’s operating performance and comparisons from period to period, as well as general information about the Company’s progress in reducing its leverage.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company’s reported GAAP net income to the calculations of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

 

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company’s net income to the calculations of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the trailing twelve months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015:

 

On April 6, 2016, the Company entered into a senior secured credit agreement (“2016 Credit Agreement”) with a syndicate of banks, replacing the Company’s previous senior secured credit agreement dated December 12, 2012 (“2012 Credit Agreement”). Under the Company’s 2016 Credit Agreement, adjusted EBITDA contains certain restrictions that limit adjustments to GAAP net income when calculating adjusted EBITDA. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2016, and 2015, the Company’s adjustments to GAAP net income when calculating adjusted EBITDA  did not exceed the allowable amount under the 2016 Credit Agreement.

The ratio of adjusted EBITDA under the Company’s 2016 Credit Agreement to consolidated funded debt less qualified cash is 3.18 times for the twelve months ending June 30, 2016. The Company’s 2016 Credit Agreement requires the Company to maintain a ratio of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash to Adjusted EBITDA of less than 5.00:1.00 times.

The following table sets forth the reconciliation of the Company’s reported total debt to the calculation of consolidated funded debt less qualified cash as of June 30, 2016 and 2015. “Consolidated funded debt” and “qualified cash” are terms used in the Company’s 2016 Credit Agreement and 2012 Credit Agreement for purposes of certain financial covenants.
