ScottsMiracle-Gro Announces First Quarter Results;
Increases Full-Year Sales Outlook for U.S. Consumer Segment
Restructuring of Hawthorne manufacturing footprint announced in effort to drive efficiencies and improve competitive position by reducing costs of LED lighting units

MARYSVILLE, Ohio (February 1, 2022) – The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG), one of the world’s leading marketers of branded consumer lawn and garden as well as hydroponic and indoor growing products, today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter highlighted by a profitable quarter in the U.S. Consumer segment for only the second time in company history.

Company-wide sales in the quarter decreased 24 percent to $566.0 million, consistent with a pre-announcement of expected results issued on January 4. For the quarter ended January 1, 2022, the company reported a seasonal loss from continuing operations of $0.90 per share. The non-GAAP adjusted loss – which is the basis of the Company’s guidance – was $0.88 per share.

“The U.S. Consumer segment continues to exceed our expectations and got off to a good start, especially given the difficult comparison from the 147 percent growth the segment reported in the first quarter a year ago,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman and chief executive officer. “Consumer purchases at our largest retail partners increased 3 percent in units for the quarter and 9 percent in dollars against 40 percent growth for each measure a year ago. The continued level of consumer and retailer support leaves us optimistic about the strength of the segment as we prepare for the upcoming lawn and garden season.

“While Hawthorne sales declined due to broader market conditions, we made two important acquisitions during the quarter and took several steps to strengthen the business when growth returns. We have told shareholders for years that our results in this segment could be choppy at times, but our long-term optimism about the industry, and our confidence in the Hawthorne business, is unchanged.

First quarter details
For the fiscal first quarter, the Company reported sales of $566.0 million, down 24 percent from $748.6 million a year ago. First quarter sales for the Hawthorne segment decreased 38 percent to $190.6 million. The decline, which was against growth of 71 percent for the same period a year ago, had been previously announced and was driven primarily by an over-supply of cannabis grown in state-authorized markets that has led to a temporary decline in commercial cultivation activity. Supply chain disruptions also contributed to the decline. The segment reported a loss of $5.3 million in the quarter compared to income of $40.4 million a year ago.

U.S. Consumer segment sales decreased 16 percent to $342.4 million. The decline was better than expected given the 147 percent revenue growth in the first quarter a year ago. The segment reported income of $10.7 million, compared with the record result of $45.3 million a year ago. The result marked only the second time the segment has recorded a profit in the first quarter.

The Company said the better-than-expected result in U.S. Consumer, coupled with additional pricing actions that will take effect in the third quarter, is allowing it to increase full-year sales guidance in the segment to a range of plus 2 percent to minus 2 percent. This compares to a previous range of flat to minus 4 percent. The improved guidance does not require the Company to adjust its outlook for the balance of the lawn and garden season but allows it to maintain guidance for adjusted earnings per share despite its recently revised reduction in the full-year sales outlook for Hawthorne.

The company-wide GAAP and non-GAAP adjusted gross margin rates were 21.0 percent compared with 25.5 percent and 26.7 percent, respectively, a year ago. The decline was driven primarily by a decrease in fixed cost leverage as well as higher material, warehousing and distribution costs and was partially offset by increased pricing benefits as well as favorable segment mix. Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) decreased 2 percent to $154.1 million.

“Most of the gross margin rate decline in the quarter was expected due to lower fixed cost leverage compared with year-ago volume that was at record levels,” said Cory Miller, chief financial officer. “While material costs were higher than our original estimates, we have communicated an additional price increase to our retail partners that should keep us on track to cover increased commodity costs on a full-year basis. We have been encouraged in recent weeks to see a decline in several key raw material inputs, which seeds a level of cautious optimism that the pressure we’ve been dealing with for the past year may finally be easing.”

On a company-wide basis, the GAAP loss from continuing operations was $50.0 million, or $0.90 per share, compared with income of $25.2 million, or $0.43 per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Those results include impairment, restructuring and other non-recurring items. Excluding those items, the non-GAAP loss was $48.6 million, or $0.88 per share, compared with adjusted income of $22.2 million, or $0.39 per share, last year.
