Alberto Culver Announces Second Quarter and First Half Fiscal Year 2010 Results

Melrose Park, IL, (April 26, 2010) – Alberto Culver Company (NYSE: ACV), a leading manufacturer and marketer of beauty care brands including

TRESemmé, Alberto VO5, Nexxus, St. Ives, Simple and Noxzema, today announced results for its fiscal year 2010 second quarter and first half ended March 31, 2010.

Alberto Culver President and Chief Executive Officer V. James Marino said, “The strength of our brands, led by TRESemmé, has enabled us to continue to show positive momentum and generate especially strong growth in our international markets. This comes in the face of a sluggish global hair care category and the impact on our U.S. business from the manufacturing and supply chain issues that we discussed on our last earnings call. While we have made solid progress in restoring customer service levels, particularly in March, we expect some of the disruptions to continue into the current quarter.”

Second Quarter

 

   

Net sales for the second quarter increased 11.8% to $384.8 million compared to $344.3 million in the prior year quarter. On an organic basis, which excludes the effect of foreign currency fluctuations and acquisitions and divestitures, sales increased 1.2% in the current quarter.

 

   

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 7.1% to 30 cents in the second quarter compared to 28 cents in the prior year quarter. Excluding restructuring and discrete items, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 10.7% to 31 cents compared to 28 cents in the prior year quarter. Second quarter growth was tempered by a charge of approximately three cents per share related to the voluntary withdrawal of select SKU’s in the Company’s relaxer kit business.
