SAN DIEGO – July 10, 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 third fiscal quarter ended May 31, 2018.
Financial Highlights and Summary
"We had a solid quarter and are pleased that we achieved both sales and earnings results which reflect new record highs for the Company,” said Garry Ridge, WD-40 Company’s president and chief executive officer. "Our maintenance products delivered solid sales increases in the third quarter including 10 percent growth of WD-40 Multi-Use Product and 16 percent growth of WD-40 Specialist. Though fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates favorably impacted our sales results in the current quarter, we still saw a currency adjusted sales growth rate of 5 percent period-over-period.
“Unfortunately we are continuing to see the impact of higher commodity prices which have begun to deteriorate our gross margins in all three of our operating segments. To combat this margin pressure we have made some price increases to ensure our gross margin remains in-line with our 55/30/25 business model.
“Finally, we continue to return capital to our investors through regular dividends and share buybacks. Over the last 2 years alone we have returned over $100 million in capital to our shareholders in this manner. In order to continue returning capital to shareholders through share buybacks, last month our Board of Directors approved a new $75.0 million share buyback plan to replace our expiring plan,” concluded Ridge.
