Hain-Product-Line-2Hain Celestial has reported results for its second quarter ended December 31, 2015. The company achieved record net sales of $752.6 million, an 8% increase, or 11% on a constant currency basis, over prior year net sales of $696.4 million. Net sales were impacted by $18.3 million as a result of foreign exchange rate movements versus a year ago.

Earnings per diluted share were $0.55, a 28% increase; adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.57, a 6% increase. Foreign currencies impacted reported results by $0.01 per diluted share.

Hain also saw record operating income of $87.7 million, 11.7% of net sales; adjusted operating income of $92.9 million, 12.3% of net sales.

“Our record net sales reflect the continuing strong performance from the United Kingdom and Rest of World segments, which collectively grew 12% in constant currency and the Hain Pure Protein Corporation segment (“HPPC”), which grew 21% excluding the acquisition of Empire. Our strong sales growth was impacted in the quarter primarily by reductions in inventories at certain customers in the United States segment,” said Irwin D. Simon, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hain Celestial. “We were able to deliver these strong results, reflecting our global diversified business model across Hain Celestial’s organic and natural brands, product categories, customers and geographies.”

“Hain Celestial continues to be at the forefront of the evolution around changing consumer trends in consumer packaged goods with a strong global brand portfolio in key growth categories. We are uniquely positioned to satisfy the health and wellness needs of consumers with our leading natural and organic products as we work to deliver increased shareholder value,” concluded Irwin Simon.

The company reiterated its fiscal year 2016 guidance expectations of total net sales range of $2.90 billion to $3.04 billion, an increase of approximately 7% to 12% as compared to fiscal year 2015, and earnings per diluted share range of $1.95 to $2.10, an increase of approximately 4% to 12% as compared to fiscal year 2015.

The Hain Celestial Group is a food company whose main focus is foods and personal care products. Their products range from herbal teas, offered through their Celestial Seasonings brand, to chickens from the FreeBird brand. They also provide whole grain foods through Arrowhead Mills.
