LEXINGTON, Ky., Aug. 1, 2018 – Valvoline Inc. (NYSE: VVV), a leading supplier of premium branded lubricants and automotive services, today reported financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2018.
Reported third-quarter 2018 net income and EPS were $64 million and $0.33, respectively. These results included after-tax income of $7 million ($0.04 per diluted share) related to non-service pension and other post-employment benefit (OPEB) income and after-tax expenses of $2 million ($0.01 per diluted share) related to a foreign currency adjustment in connection with the Great Canadian Oil Change acquisition and $3 million ($0.02 per diluted share) primarily related to Kentucky state tax reform.
Reported third-quarter 2017 net income and EPS were $56 million and $0.27 respectively, which included after-tax income of $10 million ($0.05 per diluted share) related to non-service pension and OPEB income and after-tax expenses of $13 million ($0.07 per diluted share) for legacy and other separation-related costs.
Adjusted third-quarter 2018 net income and adjusted EPS were $62 million and $0.32, respectively, compared to adjusted net income of $59 million and adjusted EPS of $0.29 in the prior year period. (See Table 7 for reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted EPS.)

Third-quarter results were driven by the ongoing strength of SSS in VIOC and strong joint venture performance and favorable foreign exchange in International, which were partially offset by lower Core North America margins due to weaker Do-It-For-Me (DIFM) installer volumes and negative price-cost lag. These factors led to adjusted EBITDA of $115 million, a 3 percent increase compared to the prior year period.
“In the quarter we experienced weaker-than-expected volume and short-term margin pressure driven by raw material cost inflation. As a result, our third quarter results came in below our expectations,” said Chief Executive Officer Sam Mitchell. “Despite these headwinds, our team continued to deliver against some of our key performance indicators. VIOC same-store sales growth was 7.9 percent. Premium mix continues to be strong and we are pleased with the volume gains in both China and India.”
Operating Segment Results for the Third Quarter
Core North America
Lubricant volume declined 1% to 25.5 million gallons
Branded premium mix increased 470 basis points to 49.7%
Operating income declined 15% to $41 million; EBITDA declined 12% to $46 million
Core North America’s total lubricant volume declined 1 percent in the quarter. Branded volume declined modestly versus prior year while non-branded volume declined 2 percent. Volume sold through the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) channel grew 2 percent. This was offset by soft performance in DIFM installer channels.
Branded premium mix continued to improve, reflecting the ongoing shift to synthetic products. The benefit of this enhanced product mix, however, was offset by lower conventional and non-branded volumes as well as lower volume within DIFM installer channels. Margin was negatively affected by higher year-over-year base oil costs.
Valvoline expects improved margins in the fourth quarter, driven by pricing actions and favorable mix, leading to year-over-year EBITDA growth in Core North America.
Quick Lubes
VIOC SSS increased 7.9% overall, 8.7% for company-owned stores and 7.4% for franchised stores
Operating income grew 12% to $38 million; adjusted EBITDA grew 18% to $47 million
VIOC ended the quarter with 1,154 total stores, a net increase of 13 during the period and 41 over the prior year
The Quick Lubes operating segment had another very strong quarter and continues to be a key growth driver for the company. The increase in SSS was the result of both increased transactions and average ticket. The continued success of investments made in customer acquisition and retention programs drove higher transactions. Previously implemented pricing actions and premium mix led to higher average ticket.
Sales and segment EBITDA growth were driven by increased SSS and the addition of 41 net new stores as compared to the prior year.

On July 13, 2018, the company completed its acquisition of Great Canadian Oil Change, Valvoline’s first international quick-lube acquisition. With 73 franchised locations, Great Canadian Oil Change is the third-largest quick-lube chain in Canada. Its established brand and loyal customer base provides the company with an excellent foundation to expand its quick-lube footprint outside the U.S.
International
Lubricant volume declined 2% to 14.3 million gallons; lubricant volume from unconsolidated joint ventures grew 6% to 10.4 million gallons
Operating income grew 11% to $20 million; EBITDA grew 10% to $22 million
The International segment continued to drive volume gains in the fast-growing markets of China and India where total volume, including unconsolidated joint ventures, grew 9 percent. These volume gains were offset by soft volumes in other regions.
International segment EBITDA grew 10 percent to $22 million in the quarter. Pricing actions taken in previous periods combined with strong performances from unconsolidated joint ventures offset cost increases and contributed $1 million to EBITDA improvement. Foreign exchange also had a favorable $1 million impact on EBITDA compared to the prior year period.
Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
Total debt of approximately $1.3 billion and net debt of approximately $1.2 billion
Year-to-date cash flow from operations of $181 million and free cash flow of $130 million
Repurchased 4.6 million shares for $98 million in the third quarter
Total and net debt increased moderately from the previous quarter. The company added $73 million of cash flow from operations in the period.
The company repurchased $98 million of stock in the quarter, continuing to deliver against its stated objective of returning cash to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases. Fiscal year to date, the company has repurchased $224 million of Valvoline stock and paid $45 million in dividends.
Fiscal 2018 Outlook
”For the fiscal fourth quarter, we anticipate continued strong same-store sales growth from VIOC. We’re also excited to bring the Great Canadian Oil Change stores into our system and at the same time expect to add nearly 30 new stores across the VIOC network. We expect a solid quarter in International and modest improvement in Core North America,” Mitchell said. “Driven primarily by reduced volume expectations, we are lowering our fiscal 2018 adjusted EBITDA guidance to $465 to $470 million.
“Despite a challenging third quarter, our teams continue to make progress laying a solid foundation for the future.”

Valvoline’s outlook for adjusted EBITDA, diluted adjusted EPS and the adjusted effective tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or will otherwise be adjusted for items impacting comparability. Valvoline is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP net income and diluted EPS without unreasonable efforts, as the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP net income and diluted EPS in 2018 but would not impact non-GAAP adjusted results.
Conference Call Webcast
Valvoline will host a live audio webcast of its third-quarter fiscal 2018 conference call at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018. The webcast and supporting materials will be accessible through Valvoline’s website at http://investors.valvoline.com. Following the live event, an archived version of the webcast and supporting materials will be available for 12 months.
Basis of Presentation
For periods following Valvoline’s initial public offering in September 2016, various assets and liabilities were transferred to Valvoline from its former parent company, Ashland Global Holdings Inc. (“Ashland”), and Valvoline operated as a stand-alone business with arms-length transition service agreements with Ashland. On May 12, 2017, Ashland distributed its remaining interest in Valvoline to Ashland shareholders, completing Valvoline’s separation from Ashland (the “Separation”).
Valvoline’s consolidated and segment results for periods prior to the Separation are not necessarily indicative of the company’s future performance and do not reflect what the company’s financial performance would have been had it been an independent public company during the period presented.
Additionally, certain prior-year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current-year presentation. Valvoline early adopted new accounting guidance, effective for fiscal 2018, which reclassifies non-service pension and OPEB income as non-operating income.
Use of Non-GAAP Measures

4


To aid in the understanding of Valvoline’s ongoing business performance, certain items within this news release are presented on an adjusted basis. These non-GAAP measures, presented on both a consolidated and operating segment basis, which are not defined within U.S. GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to net income/loss, earnings/loss per share or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of operating performance or cash flows. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures, refer to Tables 4, 7, 8 and 9 of this news release.
The following are the non-GAAP measures management has included and how management defines them:
EBITDA, which management defines as net income/loss, plus income tax expense/benefit, net interest and other financing expenses, and depreciation and amortization;
Adjusted EBITDA, which management defines as EBITDA adjusted for certain non-operational items, including net pension and other postretirement plan non-service income and remeasurement adjustments; impairment of equity investment; and other items (which can include costs related to the separation from Ashland, impact of significant acquisitions or divestitures, restructuring costs, or other non-operational income/costs not directly attributable to the underlying business);
Free cash flow, which management defines as operating cash flows less capital expenditures and certain other adjustments as applicable;
Adjusted net income, which management defines as net income/loss adjusted for certain key items impacting comparability as noted in the definition of Adjusted EBITDA, above, as well as the estimated net impact of the enactment of tax reform; and
Adjusted EPS, which management defines as earnings per diluted share calculated using adjusted net income.
These measures are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and contain management’s best estimates of cost allocations and shared resource costs. Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures on a consolidated and operating segment basis assists investors in understanding the ongoing operating performance of Valvoline’s business by presenting comparable financial results between periods. The non-GAAP information provided is used by Valvoline’s management and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because of differing methods used by other companies in calculating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EPS. These non-GAAP measures provide a supplemental presentation of Valvoline’s operating performance.
Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EPS generally include adjustments for unusual, non-operational or restructuring-related activities, which impact the comparability of results between periods. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a meaningful supplemental presentation of Valvoline’s operating performance. These measures include adjustments for net pension and other postretirement plan non-service income and remeasurement adjustments, which includes several elements impacted by changes in plan assets and obligations that are primarily driven by changes in the debt and equity markets, as well as those that are predominantly legacy in nature and related to prior service to the Company from employees (e.g., retirees, former employees, current employees with frozen benefits). These elements include (i) interest cost, (ii) expected return on plan assets, (iii) actuarial gains/losses, and (iv) amortization of prior service cost. Significant factors that can contribute to changes in these elements include changes in discount rates used to remeasure pension and other postretirement obligations on an annual basis or upon a qualifying remeasurement, differences between actual and expected returns on plan assets, and other

5


changes in actuarial assumptions, such as the life expectancy of plan participants. Accordingly, management considers that these elements are more reflective of changes in current conditions in global financial markets (in particular, interest rates) and are outside the operational performance of the business and are also primarily legacy amounts that are not directly related to the underlying business and do not have an immediate, corresponding impact on the compensation and benefits provided to eligible employees for current service. These measures will continue to include pension and other postretirement service costs related to current employee service as well as the costs of other benefits provided to employees for current service.
Management uses free cash flow as an additional non-GAAP metric of cash flow generation. By deducting capital expenditures and certain other adjustments, as applicable, management is able to provide a better indication of the ongoing cash being generated that is ultimately available for both debt and equity holders as well as other investment opportunities. Unlike cash flow from operating activities, free cash flow includes the impact of capital expenditures, providing a more complete picture of cash generation. Free cash flow has certain limitations, including that it does not reflect adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows, such as mandatory debt repayments. The amount of mandatory versus discretionary expenditures can vary significantly between periods.
Valvoline’s results of operations are presented based on Valvoline’s management structure and internal accounting practices. The structure and practices are specific to Valvoline; therefore, Valvoline’s financial results, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS are not necessarily comparable with similar information for other comparable companies. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS each have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income and cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should rely primarily on net income and cash flows provided from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS only as supplements. In evaluating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS, you should be aware that in the future Valvoline may incur expenses/income similar to those for which adjustments are made in calculating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS. Valvoline’s presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS should not be construed as a basis to infer that Valvoline’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.
