EDGEWELL PERSONAL CARE COMPANY
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited, in millions, except per share data)

Note 1 - Background and Basis of Presentation
Background
Edgewell Personal Care Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, "Edgewell" or the "Company"), is one of the world's largest manufacturers and marketers of personal care products in the wet shave, sun and skin care, feminine care and infant care categories. Edgewell has a portfolio of over 25 brands and a global footprint in more than 50 countries.
The Company conducts its business in the following four segments:
Wet Shave consists of products sold under the Schick®, Wilkinson Sword®, Edge®, Skintimate®, Shave Guard and Personna® brands, as well as non-branded products. The Company's wet shave products include razor handles and refillable blades, disposable shave products and shaving gels and creams.
Sun and Skin Care consists of Banana Boat® and Hawaiian Tropic® sun care products, as well as Wet Ones® hand and face wipes and Playtex® household gloves.
Feminine Care includes tampons, pads and liners sold under the Playtex®, Stayfree®, Carefree® and o.b.® brands, as well as personal cleansing wipes under the Playtex® brand.
All Other includes infant care products, such as bottles, cups and pacifiers, under the Playtex®, OrthoPro® and Binky® brand names, as well as the Diaper Genie® and Litter Genie® disposal systems.

Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its controlled subsidiaries and have been prepared in accordance with United States ("U.S.") generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), under the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The preparation of the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. Actual results may differ materially from those estimates. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation and, in the opinion of management, all normal recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included in the interim results reported. The fiscal year-end balance sheet data was derived from audited consolidated financial statements, but do not include all of the annual disclosures required by GAAP; accordingly, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited annual consolidated financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on November 30, 2015.
Separation. On July 1, 2015, the Company completed the separation of its Household Products business into a separate publicly-traded company (the "Spin" or the "Separation"). The historical financial results of the Company's Household Products business, which assumed the name Energizer Holdings, Inc. ("New Energizer"), are presented as discontinued operations on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings and, as such, have been excluded from both continuing operations and segment results for all periods presented. The prior year Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Cash Flows have not been adjusted to reflect the effect of the Separation, as the Company had not adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board's ("FASB") updated guidance on the presentation of discontinued operations at the time of Separation. Unless indicated otherwise, the information in Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements relates to the Company's continuing operations. Prior periods have been recast to reflect the Company's current segment reporting. See Note 2 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the Separation.
Venezuela Deconsolidation. Venezuelan exchange control regulations have resulted in an other-than-temporary lack of exchangeability between the Venezuelan bolivar and U.S. dollar, resulting in a lack of control over the Company's Venezuelan subsidiaries for accounting purposes. As the Company expects this condition will continue for the foreseeable future, it deconsolidated its Venezuelan subsidiaries on March 31, 2015, and began accounting for the investment in its Venezuelan operations using the cost method of accounting. Since March 31, 2015, the Company's financial results have not included the operating results of its Venezuelan operations.

6



Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements. In November 2015, the FASB issued a new Accounting Standards Update ("ASU"), which simplifies the presentation of deferred income taxes. Under the new guidance, an entity is required to classify deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. The current requirement that deferred tax assets and liabilities of a tax-paying component of an entity be offset and presented as a single amount is not affected by the amendments in this ASU. The Company has chosen to early adopt this guidance during the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The Company adopted this guidance prospectively, resulting in a reclassification of $85.1 deferred tax assets and $2.7 deferred tax liabilities from current to non-current as of December 31, 2015.

Note 2 - Discontinued Operations
On July 1, 2015, the Company completed the Separation; therefore, the Household Products business has been reclassified to discontinued operations on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Earnings for the three months ended December 31, 2014. Discontinued operations includes the results of the Household Products business, except for certain corporate overhead and other allocations, which remain in continuing operations. The costs to separate New Energizer are primarily reflected in continuing operations; however, certain costs specifically related to New Energizer are included in discontinued operations. The prior year Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows has not been adjusted to reflect the impact of the Separation. Net sales and income from New Energizer's operations for the three months ended December 31, 2014 were as follows:
Net sales
$
501.3

 
 
Earnings before income taxes from discontinued operations
117.0

Income tax provision for discontinued operations
31.8

Net earnings from discontinued operations, net of tax
$
85.2


The Company incurred incremental costs to evaluate, plan and execute the Separation. The Company also initiated certain restructuring activities in order to prepare both businesses to operate as stand-alone entities. These pre-tax charges related to the Spin and Spin restructuring initiatives were included in continuing operations as follows:
$7.5 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 ($7.3 included in Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") and $0.2 included in Cost of products sold);
$25.0 for the three months ended December 31, 2014 ($23.8 included in SG&A and $1.2 included in Spin restructuring charges); and
$202.2 for the project-to-date ($169.5 included in SG&A, $4.4 included in Cost of products sold and $28.3 included in Spin restructuring charges).

Of the total Spin and Spin restructuring costs included in continuing operations for the project-to-date, $9.7 were non-cash, primarily related to asset impairments and incremental costs associated with the modification of equity awards. The Company expects to incur approximately $2.5 to $4.5 additional Spin costs, all of which are expected to be incurred by the end of fiscal 2016.
In addition to the above costs included in continuing operations, $17.0 and $1.6 of pre-tax Spin and Spin restructuring costs during the three months ended December 31, 2014 were included in discontinued operations.

Note 3 - Restructuring Charges
Spin Restructuring
As mentioned in Note 2 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company initiated certain restructuring activities related to the Separation in order to prepare both businesses to operate as stand-alone entities. The restructuring activities included efforts to adapt the global go-to-market footprint to adjust to the future strategies and scale of each stand-alone business; centralize certain back-office functions to increase efficiencies; outsource certain non-core transactional activities; and reduce headcount to optimize the cost structures of each stand-alone business.

7



The Company incurred $1.2 of pre-tax Spin restructuring costs during the three months ended December 31, 2014. These charges consisted primarily of severance and related benefit costs, non-cash asset write-downs, as well as other exit-related costs. As of December 31, 2015, $9.8 of accrued Spin restructuring charges were included in Other current liabilities. The Company does not expect to incur significant additional Spin restructuring charges.

2013 Restructuring
In November 2012, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") authorized an enterprise-wide restructuring plan (the "2013 Restructuring"). The 2013 Restructuring originally included several initiatives focused on reducing costs in general and administrative functions, as well as reducing manufacturing and operating costs associated with our discontinued operations. In January 2014, the Board authorized an expansion of scope of the previously announced 2013 Restructuring, which included rationalization and streamlining of the Edgewell operating facilities and other cost saving initiatives. Restructuring charges specific to Edgewell have primarily related to plant closure and accelerated depreciation charges and severance and related benefit costs. The Company expects restructuring costs to total $40.0 to $45.0 in 2016 and $5.0 to $10.0 for 2017.

Note 4 - Income Taxes
For the three months ended December 31, 2015, the Company had income tax expense of $7.0 on earnings before income taxes from continuing operations of $30.7. For the three months ended December 31, 2014, the Company had an income tax benefit of $0.8 on earnings before income taxes of $19.1. The effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2015 was 22.8%, compared to a 4.2% benefit for the three months ended December 31, 2014. The difference between the federal statutory rate and the effective rate in both periods is primarily due to a higher mix of earnings in lower tax rate jurisdictions. The rate is also favorably impacted by Separation and restructuring charges in higher tax rate jurisdictions, as well as favorable tax adjustments, which reduced the effective tax rate by approximately 13% in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 and by approximately 4% in the first quarter of fiscal 2016.
As of December 31, 2015, the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet reflects a liability for unrecognized tax benefits of approximately $29.6. The decrease from the September 30, 2015 balance of $47.1 was primarily due to audit settlements and statute expirations in various tax jurisdictions.

Note 5 - Earnings per Share
Basic earnings per share is based on the average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is based on the average number of shares used for the basic earnings per share calculation, adjusted for the dilutive effect of share options and restricted share equivalent ("RSE") awards.
Following is the reconciliation between the number of weighted-average shares used in the basic and diluted earnings per share calculation:

62.4


For the three months ended December 31, 2015, the calculation of diluted weighted-average shares outstanding excludes 0.4 of share options and 0.2 of RSE awards because the effect of including these awards was anti-dilutive. For the three months ended December 31, 2014, there were no shares considered anti-dilutive.

Amortization expense was $3.6 and $4.1 for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Estimated amortization expense for amortizable intangible assets for the remainder of fiscal 2016 and the fiscal years ending September 30, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 is approximately $10.9, $14.2, $6.7, $5.5, $4.8 and $4.2, respectively, and $38.5 thereafter.
The Company had indefinite-lived intangible assets of $1,317.5 ($262.7 in Wet Shave, $491.4 in Sun and Skin Care, $299.9 in Feminine Care and $263.5 in All Other) at December 31, 2015, a decrease of $2.0 from September 30, 2015, due to changes in foreign currency translation rates.
Goodwill and intangible assets deemed to have an indefinite life are not amortized, but reviewed annually during the fourth fiscal quarter for impairment of value or when indicators of a potential impairment are present. The Company continuously monitors changing business conditions, which may indicate that the remaining useful life of goodwill and other intangible assets may warrant revision or carrying amounts may require adjustment. During fiscal 2015, the Company recorded impairment charges of $318.2 on its Playtex®, Wet Ones® and Skintimate® brand names. Given that the carrying value of these brand names has been reduced to their determined fair value, these intangible assets will be sensitive in the future to changes in forecasted cash flow, as well as other assumptions used in an impairment analysis, including discount rates.

Note 9 - Retirement Plans
The Company has several defined benefit pension plans covering employees in the U.S. and certain employees in other countries. The plans provide retirement benefits based on years of service and earnings.
The Company also sponsors or participates in a number of other non-U.S. pension and postretirement arrangements, including various retirement and termination benefit plans, some of which are required by local law or coordinated with government-sponsored plans, which are not significant in the aggregate and, therefore, are not included in the information presented below.
As part of the Separation, and in accordance with an employee matters agreement entered into with New Energizer, certain combined plans were split between Edgewell and New Energizer. Accordingly, the Company transferred to New Energizer pension obligations associated with their active, retired and other former employees for those impacted defined benefit pension plans. The allocation of plan assets was determined in accordance with applicable ERISA (The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974), Internal Revenue Service and other jurisdictional requirements. As of December 31, 2015, certain international defined benefit plans retained by Edgewell are unfunded. The Company funds its pension plans in compliance with ERISA or local funding requirements. The Company has evaluated the discretionary funding of certain international defined benefit plans and contributed €92.8 (approximately $100) during the second quarter of fiscal 2016.
The Company's net periodic pension benefit cost for these plans was as follows:

Note 10 - Shareholders' Equity
In May 2015, the Board approved an authorization to repurchase up to 10.0 shares of the Company's common stock. This authorization replaced a prior share repurchase authorization. During the three months ended December 31, 2015, the Company repurchased 1.0 shares of its common stock for $78.9, all of which were purchased under this authorization. The Company has 7.0 shares remaining under the Board authorization to repurchase its common shares in the future. Future share repurchases, if any, would be made in the open market, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, in such amounts and at such times as the Company deems appropriate based upon prevailing market conditions, business needs and other factors.
During the three months ended December 31, 2015, 0.1 shares were purchased related to the surrender of shares of common stock to satisfy tax withholding obligations in connection with the vesting of restricted stock equivalents.
On May 21, 2015, the Board declared a dividend of one preferred share purchase right (a "Right") for each outstanding share of common stock of the Company. The Rights were issued on June 1, 2015 to the shareholders of record on such date, and accompanied each new share of common stock issued between that date and the date of the Separation. Each Right allowed the holder to purchase from the Company one one-hundredth of a share of Series A Junior Participating Preferred Stock which would have given the shareholder approximately the same dividend, voting and liquidation rights as would one share of the Company common stock. The Rights expired on December 31, 2015.
The Company did not declare or pay any dividends during the first quarter of fiscal 2016. During the first quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company declared cash dividends of $31.1, or $0.50 per share.

Note 12 - Financial Instruments and Risk Management
At times, the Company enters into contractual arrangements (derivatives) to reduce its exposure to foreign currency and interest rate risks. The section below outlines the types of derivatives that existed at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, as well as the Company's objectives and strategies for holding derivative instruments.

Foreign Currency Risk
A significant share of the Company's sales are tied to currencies other than the U.S. dollar, the Company's reporting currency. As such, a weakening of currencies relative to the U.S. dollar can have a negative impact to reported earnings. Conversely, strengthening of currencies relative to the U.S. dollar can improve reported results. The primary currencies to which the Company is exposed include the Euro, the Japanese Yen, the British Pound, the Canadian Dollar and the Australian Dollar.
Additionally, the Company's foreign subsidiaries enter into internal and external transactions that create non-functional currency balance sheet positions at the foreign subsidiary level. These exposures are generally the result of intercompany purchases, intercompany loans and, to a lesser extent, external purchases, and are revalued in the foreign subsidiary's local currency at the end of each period. Changes in the value of the non-functional currency balance sheet positions in relation to the foreign subsidiary's local currency results in an exchange gain or loss recorded in Other income, net. The primary currency to which the Company's foreign subsidiaries are exposed is the U.S. dollar.

Interest Rate Risk
The Company has interest rate risk with respect to interest expense on variable rate debt. At December 31, 2015, the Company had $742.2 of variable rate debt outstanding, which were primarily outstanding borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facilities in the U.S. and the Netherlands.
 

15



Cash Flow Hedges
At December 31, 2015, the Company maintained a cash flow hedging program related to foreign currency risk. These derivative instruments have a high correlation to the underlying exposure being hedged and have been deemed highly effective for accounting purposes in offsetting the associated risk.
The Company entered into a series of forward currency contracts to hedge cash flow uncertainty associated with currency fluctuations. These transactions are accounted for as cash flow hedges. The Company had an unrealized pre-tax gain of $1.8 and $4.6 at December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, respectively, on these forward currency contracts accounted for as cash flow hedges included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss. Assuming foreign exchange rates versus the U.S. dollar remain at December 31, 2015 levels over the next twelve months, the majority of the pre-tax gain included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss at December 31, 2015 is expected to be included in Other income, net. Contract maturities for these hedges extend into fiscal 2017. There were 68 open foreign currency contracts at December 31, 2015 with a total notional value of $126.0.
 
Derivatives not Designated in Hedging Relationships
The Company held a share option with a major financial institution to mitigate the impact of changes in certain of the Company's deferred compensation liabilities, which were tied to the Company's common share price. The contract matured in November 2014 and was subsequently not renewed. Period activity related to the share option is classified in the same category in the cash flow statement as the period activity associated with the Company's deferred compensation liability, which is cash flow from operations.
The Company entered into foreign currency derivative contracts which are not designated as cash flow hedges for accounting purposes to hedge balance sheet exposures. Any gains or losses on these contracts are expected to be offset by exchange gains or losses on the underlying exposures, thus they are not subject to significant market risk. The change in estimated fair value of the foreign currency contracts for the three months ended December 31, 2014 resulted in income of $5.1, and was recorded in Other income, net. The impact of the change in estimated fair value was immaterial for the three months ended December 31, 2015. There were five open foreign currency derivative contracts, which were not designated as cash flow hedges at December 31, 2015, with a total notional value of $113.2.
The following table provides estimated fair values and the amounts of gains and losses on derivative instruments classified as cash flow hedges:

Fair Value Hierarchy
Accounting guidance on fair value measurements for certain financial assets and liabilities requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value be classified in one of the following three categories:
Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting the reporting entity's own assumptions or external inputs from inactive markets.

Under the fair value accounting guidance hierarchy, an entity is required to maximize the use of quoted market prices and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The following table sets forth the Company's financial assets and liabilities, which are carried at fair value that are measured on a recurring basis during the period, segregated by level within the fair value hierarchy:

(84.1

At December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, the Company had no level 1 or level 3 financial assets or liabilities, other than pension plan assets.
At December 31, 2015 and September 30, 2015, the fair market value of fixed rate long-term debt was $1,038.8 and $1,059.8, respectively, compared to its carrying value of $1,099.1 at each date. The estimated fair value of the long-term debt is estimated using yields obtained from independent pricing sources for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The estimated fair value of fixed rate long-term debt has been determined based on level 2 inputs.
Due to the nature of cash and cash equivalents and short-term borrowings, including notes payable, carrying amounts on the balance sheets approximate fair value. The estimated fair value of cash and cash equivalents and short-term borrowings have been determined based on level 2 inputs.
At December 31, 2015, the estimated fair value of foreign currency contracts is the amount that the Company would receive or pay to terminate the contracts, considering first the quoted market prices of comparable agreements or, in the absence of quoted market prices, factors such as interest rates, currency exchange rates and remaining maturities. The estimated fair value of the deferred compensation liability is determined based upon the quoted market prices of the investment options that are offered under the plan.

Note 13 - Commitments and Contingencies
The Company and its affiliates are subject to a number of legal proceedings in various jurisdictions arising out of its operations during the ordinary course of business. Many of these legal matters are in preliminary stages and involve complex issues of law and fact, and may proceed for protracted periods of time. The amount of liability, if any, from these proceedings cannot be determined with certainty. The Company reviews its legal proceedings and claims, regulatory reviews and inspections and other legal proceedings on an ongoing basis and follows appropriate accounting guidance when making accrual and disclosure decisions. The Company establishes accruals for those contingencies when the incurrence of a loss is probable and can be reasonably estimated, and discloses the amount accrued and the amount of a reasonably possible loss in excess of the amount accrued, if such disclosure is necessary for its financial statements to not be misleading. The Company does not record liabilities when the likelihood that the liability has been incurred is probable, if the amount cannot be reasonably estimated. Based upon present information, the Company believes that its liability, if any, arising from such pending legal proceedings, asserted legal claims and known potential legal claims, which are likely to be asserted, is not reasonably likely to be material to the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows, taking into account established accruals for estimated liabilities.

Sun and Skin Care consists of Banana Boat® and Hawaiian Tropic® sun care products, as well as Wet Ones® hand and face wipes and Playtex® household gloves.
Feminine Care includes tampons, pads and liners sold under the Playtex®, Stayfree®, Carefree® and o.b.® brands, as well as personal cleansing wipes under the Playtex® brand.
All Other includes infant care products, such as bottles, cups and pacifiers, under the Playtex®, OrthoPro® and Binky® brand names, as well as the Diaper Genie® and Litter Genie® disposal systems.

Segment performance is evaluated based on segment profit, exclusive of general corporate expenses, share-based compensation costs, costs associated with most restructuring initiatives (including the Spin restructuring and the 2013 Restructuring) and the amortization of intangible assets. Financial items, such as interest income and expense, are managed on a global basis at the corporate level. The exclusion of such charges from segment results reflects management's view on how it evaluates segment performance.
The Company's operating model includes some shared business functions across the segments, including product warehousing and distribution, transaction processing functions, and in most cases a combined sales force and management teams. The Company applies a fully allocated cost basis, in which shared business functions are allocated between the segments. Such allocations are estimates, and do not represent the costs of such services if performed on a stand-alone basis.
Prior periods have been recast to reflect the Company's current segment reporting.

Note 15 - Guarantor and Non-Guarantor Financial Information
The Company's Senior Notes issued in May 2011 and May 2012 (collectively, the "Notes") are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several basis by the Company's existing and future direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries that are guarantors of any of the Company's credit agreements or other indebtedness for borrowed money (the "Guarantors"). The Guarantors are 100% owned either directly or indirectly by the Company and jointly and severally guarantee the Company's obligations under the Notes and substantially all of the Company's other outstanding indebtedness. The Company's subsidiaries organized outside of the U.S. and certain domestic subsidiaries which are not guarantors of any of the Company's other indebtedness (collectively, the "Non-Guarantors"), do not guarantee the Notes. The subsidiary guarantee with respect to the Notes is subject to release upon sale of all of the capital stock of the Subsidiary Guarantor; if the guarantee under the Company's credit agreements and other indebtedness for borrowed money is released or discharged (other than due to payment under such guarantee); or when the requirements for legal defeasance are satisfied or the obligations are discharged in accordance with the indenture.
Set forth below are the condensed consolidating financial statements presenting the results of operations, financial position and cash flows of the Parent Company, Edgewell Personal Care Company, the Guarantors on a combined basis, the Non-Guarantors on a combined basis and eliminations necessary to arrive at the information for the Company, as reported on a consolidated basis. Eliminations represent adjustments to eliminate investments in subsidiaries and intercompany balances and transactions between or among the Parent Company, the Guarantors and the Non-Guarantors.
As described in Note 2 of Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company completed the Separation of its Household Products business into a separate publicly-traded company on July 1, 2015. Certain legal entities that are now part of New Energizer were subsidiary guarantors under the terms of the Company's credit agreements. As a result of the Separation, those entities have been released as Guarantors. The financial statements below reflect those entities as Guarantors through the date of the Separation. On the Condensed Consolidating Statements of Earnings, results related to the entities that are now a part of New Energizer are reflected in Earnings from discontinued operations, net of tax.
