SAN DIEGO – April 5, 2018 ― WD-40 Company (NASDAQ:WDFC), a global marketing organization dedicated to creating positive lasting memories by developing and selling products that solve problems in workshops, factories and homes around the world, today reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2018.
Financial Highlights and Summary
“Overall we are off to a solid start in fiscal year 2018 with year-to-date net sales growth of 7 percent on a reported basis and 4 percent on a constant currency basis,” said Garry Ridge, WD-40 Company’s president and chief executive officer. “Unfortunately we are seeing the impact globally of higher commodity prices which have begun to deteriorate our gross margins. Therefore we have decided it is time to make some necessary pricing adjustments to ensure our gross margin will remain above our target of 55 percent over the long-term.
“Furthermore, I am excited to share with investors that as a result of the savings we expect to realize from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we have decided to invest an additional $1.0 million in brand building this fiscal year. This investment will focus on two main areas around the core strategies of making our end-users aware and making our products easy to buy. This investment will enable us to fast track our global digital presence and increase our sampling programs for WD-40 Multi Use Product to targeted end-user groups in countries identified as key growth opportunities.
"As we look to the remainder of fiscal year 2018, we’ve updated our fiscal year guidance to reflect updated foreign currency exchange rates, higher input costs, our revised effective tax rate as well as the changes we are making to our advertising and promotion investment this fiscal year,” Ridge concluded.
