“We delivered another quarter with strong sales growth and made sequential earnings growth progress despite significant and increasing cost headwinds,” said Jon Moeller, President and Chief Executive Officer. “These results enable us to raise our top-line growth outlook for the fiscal year and to maintain our EPS guidance range. Our focus remains on the strategies of superiority, productivity, constructive disruption and continually improving P&G’s organization and culture. These strategies have enabled us to build and sustain strong momentum. They remain the right strategies to manage through the near-term cost and operational challenges we’re facing and to deliver long-term balanced growth and value creation.”

January - March Quarter Discussion

Net sales in the third quarter of fiscal year 2022 were $19.4 billion, a seven percent increase versus the prior year. Organic sales, which exclude the impacts of foreign exchange and acquisitions and divestitures, increased 10%. The organic sales increase was driven by a three percent increase in shipment volumes, five percent from increased pricing, and a two percent increase from positive geographic and product mix.

Other includes the sales mix impact from acquisitions and divestitures and rounding impacts necessary to reconcile volume to net sales.

  • Beauty segment organic sales increased three percent versus year ago. Skin and Personal Care organic sales increased low single digits due to increased pricing and market growth, partially offset by negative product mix. Hair Care organic sales increased low single digits driven by increased pricing partially offset by pandemic-related volume slowdowns.
  • Grooming segment organic sales increased eight percent versus year ago. Shave Care organic sales increased double digits due to innovation, market growth, increased pricing and positive mix from growth of premium products and developed markets. All regions grew organic sales. Appliances organic sales decreased low single digits, versus a base period that benefited from a pandemic-related consumption increase of in-home shavers and stylers.
  • Health Care segment organic sales increased 16% versus year ago. Oral Care organic sales increased high single digits due to continued growth of premium products and increased pricing. Personal Health Care organic sales increased more than 30% due to a stronger cough, cold and flu season versus the prior year, and innovation in sleep and digestive wellness. All regions grew organic sales.
  • Fabric and Home Care segment organic sales increased 10% versus year ago. Fabric Care organic sales increased double digits led by strong growth behind premiumization, innovation and increased pricing. Home Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due to increased pricing, versus a base period that benefited from a pandemic-related consumption increase of cleaning products.
  • Baby, Feminine and Family Care segment organic sales increased 10% versus year ago. Baby Care organic sales increased double digits due to market growth, innovation and increased pricing. Feminine Care organic sales increased double digits driven by innovation, market growth, positive product mix and increased pricing. Organic sales grew in all regions. Family Care organic sales increased mid-single digits due to increased pricing.

Diluted net earnings per share increased by six percent to $1.33, driven by higher net sales and a reduction in shares outstanding partially offset by a slight decline in operating margin. Currency-neutral EPS were up 10% versus the prior year EPS.

Gross margin for the quarter decreased 400 basis points versus year ago, 380 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. The decline was driven by 410 basis points of increased commodity costs, 80 basis points of higher freight costs, 30 basis of product/package reinvestments and 130 basis points of negative product mix. These were partially offset by benefits of 220 basis points from increased pricing and 50 basis points from gross productivity savings and other impacts.

Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) as a percentage of sales decreased 380 basis points versus year ago, 400 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. The decrease was driven by 270 basis points of leverage benefit due to increased sales and 130 basis points of gross productivity savings from overhead and marketing expenses.

Operating margin for the quarter decreased 10 basis points versus the prior year and increased 20 basis points on a currency-neutral basis. Operating margin included gross productivity cost savings of 170 basis points.

Fiscal Year 2022 Guidance

P&G raised its outlook for fiscal 2022 all-in sales growth from a range of three to four percent to a range of four to five percent versus the prior fiscal year. The Company also raised its guidance for organic sales growth from a range of four to five percent to a range of six to seven percent. Foreign exchange is now expected to be a two percentage point headwind to all-in sales growth for the fiscal year.

P&G confirmed its outlook for fiscal 2022 GAAP diluted net earnings per share growth in the range of six to nine percent versus fiscal 2021 GAAP EPS of $5.50. The Company continues to expect core earnings per share growth for fiscal 2022 in the range of three to six percent versus fiscal 2021 Core EPS of $5.66. The Company added that given increased cost and foreign exchange challenges, it now expects to be at the low end of the fiscal year core EPS growth range at three percent.

P&G said its current fiscal 2022 outlook includes headwinds of $2.5 billion after-tax from higher commodity costs, $400 million after-tax from higher freight costs and $300 million after-tax from negative foreign exchange impacts. Combined, these items are a $3.2 billion after-tax headwind, or approximately $1.26 per share, to fiscal 2022 earnings versus fiscal 2021. The $3.2 billion headwind is an increase of $400 million after-tax versus guidance provided in January, with much of this increase affecting the Company’s fiscal fourth quarter.

The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP cash flow measure and tax rate measures without unreasonable efforts because the Company cannot predict the timing and amounts of discrete cash items, such as acquisitions, divestitures, or impairments, which could significantly impact GAAP results.

P&G continues to estimate a core effective tax rate in the range of 18% to 19% in fiscal 2022.

Capital spending is estimated to be in the range of four percent to five percent of fiscal 2022 net sales.

P&G continues to expect adjusted free cash flow productivity of 95% and now expects to pay over $8 billion in dividends and to repurchase approximately $10 billion of common shares in fiscal 2022. Combined, P&G plans to return over $18 billion of cash to shareowners in the fiscal year.

The Procter & Gamble Company

Exhibit 1: Non-GAAP Measures

The following provides definitions of the non-GAAP measures used in Procter & Gamble'sApril 20, 2022 earnings release and the reconciliation to the most closely related GAAP measures. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful perspective on underlying business trends and provide a supplemental measure of period-to-period financial results. Disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors and management to view our operating results excluding the impact of items that are not reflective of the underlying operating performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for business strategy purposes. Certain of these measures are also used to evaluate senior management and are a factor in determining their at-risk compensation. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures do not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company is not able to reconcile its forward-looking non-GAAP cash flow and tax rate measures because the Company cannot predict the timing and amounts of discrete items such as acquisition and divestitures, which could significantly impact GAAP results.

The Core earnings measures included in the following reconciliation tables refer to the equivalent GAAP measures adjusted as applicable for the following items:

Early debt extinguishment charges: In the three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company recorded after tax charges of $427 million ($512 million before tax) due to early extinguishment of certain long-term debt. These charges represent the difference between the reacquisition price and the par value of the debt extinguished.

We do not view the above item to be part of our sustainable results and its exclusion from Core earnings measures provides a more comparable measure of year-on-year results. This item is also excluded when evaluating senior management in determining their at-risk compensation.

Organic sales growth: Organic sales growth is a non-GAAP measure of sales growth excluding the impacts of acquisitions and divestitures and foreign exchange from year-over-year comparisons. We believe this measure provides investors with a supplemental understanding of underlying sales trends by providing sales growth on a consistent basis. This measure is used in assessing achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation.

Currency-neutral operating profit margin: Currency-neutral operating profit margin is a measure of the Company's operating margin excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Currency-neutral gross margin: Currency-neutral gross margin is a measure of the Company's gross margin excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company’s operating efficiency over time.

Currency-neutral selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense as a percentage of net sales: Currency-neutral SG&A expense as a percentage of net sales is a measure of the Company's selling, general and administrative expenses excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides a supplemental perspective to the Company's operating efficiency over time.

Core EPS: Core earnings per share, or Core EPS, is a measure of the Company's diluted net earnings per share adjusted as indicated. Management views this non-GAAP measure as a useful supplemental measure of Company performance over time. This measure is also used when evaluating senior management in determining their at-risk compensation.

Currency-neutral EPS: Currency-neutral EPS is a measure of the Company's EPS excluding the incremental current year impact of foreign exchange. Management views this non-GAAP measure as a useful supplemental measure of Company performance over time.

Adjusted free cash flow: Adjusted free cash flow is defined as operating cash flow less capital spending. Adjusted free cash flow represents the cash that the Company is able to generate after taking into account planned maintenance and asset expansion. Management views adjusted free cash flow as an important measure because it is one factor used in determining the amount of cash available for dividends, share repurchases, acquisitions and other discretionary investments.

Adjusted free cash flow productivity: Adjusted free cash flow productivity is defined as the ratio of adjusted free cash flow to net earnings. Management views adjusted free cash flow productivity as a useful measure to help investors understand P&G’s ability to generate cash. Adjusted free cash flow productivity is used by management in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for budget planning purposes. This measure is also used in assessing the achievement of management goals for at-risk compensation. The Company's long-term target is to generate annual adjusted free cash flow productivity at or above 90%.
