In May 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Term Loan Facility (the “2011 Term Loan Facility Refinancing”), which included replacing Products Corporation’s 2010 bank term loan facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2015 and had $794.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding at December 31, 2010 (the “2010 Term Loan Facility”), with a 6.5-year, $800.0 million term loan facility due November 19, 2017 (the “2011 Term Loan Facility”) under a third amended and restated term loan agreement dated May 19, 2011 (the “2011 Term Loan Agreement”). Products Corporation used $796 million of proceeds from the 2011 Term Loan Facility, which was drawn in full on the May 19, 2011 closing date and issued to lenders at 99.5% of par, to repay in full the $792.0 million of then outstanding indebtedness under its 2010 Term Loan Facility and to pay approximately $2 million of accrued interest. The Company incurred $3.6 million of fees in connection with consummating the 2011 Term Loan Facility Refinancing, of which $1.9 million was capitalized.

In June 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Revolving Credit Facility (the “2011 Revolving Credit Facility Refinancing”), which included refinancing Products Corporation’s 2010 revolving credit facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2014 and had nil outstanding borrowings at December 31, 2010 (the “2010 Revolving Credit Facility”), with a 5-year, $140.0 million asset-based, multi-currency revolving credit facility due June 16, 2016 (the “2011 Revolving Credit Facility”) under a third amended and restated revolving credit agreement dated June 16, 2011 (the “2011 Revolving Credit Agreement” and together with the 2011 Term Loan Agreement, the “2011 Credit Agreements”).

The Company uses print, television and internet advertising, as well as point-of-sale merchandising, including displays and samples, coupons and other trial incentives. The Company’s marketing emphasizes a uniform global image and product for its portfolio of core brands. The Company coordinates advertising campaigns with in-store promotional and other marketing activities. The Company develops jointly with retailers carefully tailored advertising, point-of-purchase and other focused marketing programs.

The Company also uses cooperative advertising programs, Company-paid or Company-subsidized demonstrators, and coordinated in-store promotions and displays. Other marketing materials designed to introduce the Company’s newest products to consumers and encourage trial and purchase in-store include trial-size products and couponing. Additionally, the Company maintains separate websites, www.revlon.com, www.almay.com and www.mitchum.com devoted to the Revlon, Almay and Mitchum brands, respectively. Each of these websites feature product and promotional information for the brands and are updated regularly to stay current with the Company’s new product launches and other advertising and promotional campaigns.

New Product Development and Research and Development

The Company believes that it is an industry leader in the development of innovative and technologically-advanced cosmetics and beauty products. The Company’s marketing and research and development groups identify consumer needs and shifts in consumer preferences in order to develop new products, introduce line extensions and promotions and redesign or reformulate existing products to satisfy such needs or preferences.

The Company’s research and development group is comprised of departments specialized in the technologies critical to the Company’s various product categories. The Company has a global cross-functional product development process, including a rigorous process for the continuous development and evaluation of new product concepts, led by executives in marketing, sales, research and development, operations, law and finance. This process has improved the Company’s new product commercialization process and created a comprehensive, long-term portfolio strategy which is intended to optimize the Company’s ability to regularly bring to market innovative new product offerings and to effectively manage the Company’s product portfolio.

The Company operates an extensive cosmetics research and development facility in Edison, New Jersey. The scientists at the Edison facility are responsible for all of the Company’s new product research and development worldwide and performing research for new products, ideas, concepts and packaging. The research and development group at the Edison facility also performs extensive safety and quality testing on the Company’s products, including toxicology, microbiology, efficacy and package testing. Additionally, quality control testing is performed at each of the Company’s manufacturing facilities.

As of December 31, 2011, the Company employed approximately 140 people in its research and development activities, including specialists in pharmacology, toxicology, chemistry, microbiology, engineering, biology, dermatology and quality control. In 2011, 2010 and 2009, the Company spent $23.8 million, $24.0 million and $23.9 million, respectively, on research and development activities.

Manufacturing and Related Operations and Raw Materials

During 2011, the Company’s cosmetics and/or personal care products were produced at the Company’s facilities in North Carolina, Venezuela, France and South Africa and at third-party facilities around the world. However, in June 2011, the Company’s facility in Venezuela was destroyed by a fire, see “Fire at Revlon Venezuela Facility,” within Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations, for further discussion.

The Company continually reviews its manufacturing needs against its manufacturing capacities to identify opportunities to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. The Company purchases raw materials and components throughout the world, and continuously pursues reductions in cost of goods through the global sourcing of raw materials and components from qualified vendors, utilizing its purchasing capacity to maximize cost savings. The Company’s global sourcing strategy for materials and components from accredited vendors is also designed to ensure the highest quality and the continuity of supply of the raw materials and components. The Company believes that alternate sources of raw materials and components exist and does not anticipate any significant shortages of, or difficulty in obtaining, such materials.

Distribution

The Company’s products are sold in more than 100 countries across six continents. The Company utilizes a dedicated sales force in those countries where the Company maintains operations, and also utilizes sales representatives and independent distributors to serve certain territories and related distribution channels.

United States. Net sales in the U.S. accounted for approximately 55% of the Company’s 2011 net sales, more than a majority of which were made in the mass retail channel. The Company also sells a broad range of its products to U.S. Government military exchanges and commissaries. The Company licenses its trademarks to select manufacturers for complementary beauty-related products and accessories that the Company believes have the potential to extend the Company’s brand names and image. As of December 31, 2011, eleven (11) of such licenses were in effect relating to eighteen (18) product categories, which are marketed principally in the mass-retail distribution channel. Pursuant to such licenses, the Company retains strict control over product design and development, product quality, advertising and the use of its trademarks. These licensing arrangements offer opportunities for the Company to generate revenues and cash flow through royalties and renewal fees, some of which are prepaid from time to time.

The Company’s retail merchandisers stock and maintain the Company’s point-of-sale wall displays intended to ensure that high-selling SKUs are in stock and to ensure the optimal presentation of the Company’s products in retail outlets.

Outside of the United States. Net sales outside the U.S. accounted for approximately 45% of the Company’s 2011 net sales. The five countries outside the U.S. with the highest net sales were South Africa, Australia, Canada, the U.K. and China, which together accounted for approximately 24% of the Company’s 2011 net sales. The Company distributes its products through drug stores and chemist shops, hypermarkets, mass volume retailers, general merchandise stores, department stores and specialty stores, such as perfumeries. At December 31, 2011, the Company actively sold its products through wholly-owned subsidiaries established in 14 countries outside of the U.S. and through a large number of distributors and licensees elsewhere around the world.

Customers

The Company’s principal customers include large mass volume retailers and chain drug stores, including such well-known retailers as Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and Target in the U.S., Shoppers DrugMart in Canada, A.S. Watson & Co. retail chains in Asia Pacific and Europe and Boots in the U.K. Walmart and its affiliates worldwide accounted for approximately 22% of the Company’s 2011 consolidated net sales. As is customary in the consumer products industry, none of the Company’s customers is under an obligation to continue purchasing products from the Company in the future. The Company expects that Walmart and a small number of other customers will, in the aggregate, continue to account for a large portion of the Company’s net sales. (See Item 1A. “Risk Factors—The Company depends on a limited number of customers for a large portion of its net sales and the loss of one or more of these customers could reduce the Company’s net sales and have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations”).

Competition

The consumer products business is highly competitive. The Company competes primarily by:

 

   

developing quality products with innovative performance features, shades, finishes, components and packaging;

 

   

educating consumers about the benefits of the Company’s products;

 

   

anticipating and responding to changing consumer demands in a timely manner, including the timing of new product introductions and line extensions;

 

   

offering attractively priced products relative to the product benefits provided;

 

   

maintaining favorable brand recognition;

 

   

generating competitive margins and inventory turns for its retail customers by providing relevant products and executing effective pricing, incentive and promotion programs;

 

   

ensuring product availability through effective planning and replenishment collaboration with retailers;

 

   

providing strong and effective advertising, marketing, promotion and merchandising support;

 

   

maintaining an effective sales force; and

 

   

obtaining and retaining sufficient retail floor space, optimal in-store positioning and effective presentation of its products at retail.

The Company competes in selected product categories against a number of multi-national manufacturers. In addition to products sold in the mass retail channel and demonstrator-assisted channels, the Company’s products also compete with similar products sold in prestige and department stores, television shopping, door-to-door, specialty stores, the internet, perfumeries and other distribution outlets. The Company’s competitors include, among others, L’Oréal S.A., The Procter & Gamble Company, Avon Products, Inc. and The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. (See Item 1A. “Risk Factors—Competition in the consumer products business could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations”).

Item 1A. Risk Factors

In addition to the other information in this report, investors should consider carefully the following risk factors when evaluating the Company’s business.

Revlon, Inc. is a holding company with no business operations of its own and is dependent on its subsidiaries to pay certain expenses and dividends. In addition, shares of the capital stock of Products Corporation, Revlon, Inc.’s wholly-owned operating subsidiary, are pledged by Revlon, Inc. to secure its obligations under the 2011 Credit Agreements and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes.

Revlon, Inc. is a holding company with no business operations of its own. Revlon, Inc.’s only material asset is all of the outstanding capital stock of Products Corporation, Revlon, Inc.’s wholly-owned operating subsidiary, through which Revlon, Inc. conducts its business operations. As such, Revlon, Inc.’s net income has historically consisted predominantly of its equity in the net income of Products Corporation, which for 2011, 2010 and 2009 was $64.0 million, $324.3 million and $58.8 million, respectively (which excluded $7.4 million, $7.3 million and $9.5 million, respectively, in expenses primarily related to Revlon, Inc. being a public holding company). Revlon, Inc. is dependent on the earnings and cash flow of, and dividends and distributions from, Products Corporation to pay Revlon, Inc.’s expenses incidental to being a public holding company and to pay any cash dividend or distribution on its Class A Common Stock in each case that may be authorized by Revlon, Inc.’s Board of Directors.

Revlon, Inc. expects that quarterly dividends on shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Series A preferred stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Preferred Stock”), will be funded by cash interest payments to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation on the Contributed Loan (the $48.6 million portion of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan that was contributed to Revlon, Inc. by MacAndrews & Forbes in 2009). Additionally, Revlon, Inc. expects to pay the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock on October 8, 2013 with the cash payment to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation in respect of the maturity of the Contributed Loan. The payment of such interest and principal under the Contributed Loan to Revlon, Inc. by Products Corporation is permissible under the 2011 Credit Agreements, the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture. Under the Delaware General Corporation Law, Revlon, Inc. is permitted to pay dividends only from its “surplus,” which is the excess of its total assets over the sum of its liabilities plus the aggregate par value of its outstanding capital stock, or if Revlon, Inc. has no surplus, out of its net profits for the year in which a dividend is declared and for the immediately preceding fiscal year. Additionally, Revlon, Inc. is permitted to redeem the Preferred Stock only from its surplus. In the event that Revlon, Inc. fails to pay any required dividends on the Preferred Stock, the amount of such unpaid dividends will be added to the amount payable to holders of the Preferred Stock upon redemption. (See “The Preferred Stock ranks senior to Revlon, Inc.’s Common Stock and is subordinate to the Company’s indebtedness.”).

Products Corporation may not generate sufficient cash flow to pay dividends or distribute funds to Revlon, Inc. because, for example, Products Corporation may not generate sufficient cash or net income; state laws may restrict or prohibit Products Corporation from issuing dividends or making distributions unless Products Corporation has sufficient surplus or net profits, which Products Corporation may not have; or because contractual restrictions, including negative covenants contained in Products Corporation’s various debt instruments, may prohibit or limit such dividends or distributions.

The terms of the 2011 Credit Agreements, the indenture governing Products Corporation’s outstanding 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes (the “9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture”) and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement generally restrict Products Corporation from paying dividends, advancing or making distributions to Revlon, Inc. except in limited circumstances (including, without limitation, that Products Corporation is permitted to pay dividends, advance and make distributions to Revlon, Inc. to enable Revlon, Inc.,

 

10


among other things, to pay expenses incidental to being a public holding company, including, among other things, professional fees such as legal, accounting and insurance fees, regulatory fees, such as SEC filing fees, NYSE listing fees and other expenses related to being a public holding company and, subject to certain limitations, to pay dividends, if any, on Revlon, Inc.’s outstanding securities or make distributions in certain circumstances to finance the purchase by Revlon, Inc. of its Class A Common Stock in connection with the delivery of such Class A Common Stock to grantees under the Third Amended and Restated Revlon, Inc. Stock Plan). This limitation therefore restricts Revlon, Inc.’s ability to pay dividends on its Class A Common Stock.

All of the shares of the capital stock of Products Corporation held by Revlon, Inc. are pledged to secure Revlon, Inc.’s guarantee of Products Corporation’s obligations under the 2011 Credit Agreements and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes. A foreclosure upon the shares of Products Corporation’s common stock would result in Revlon, Inc. no longer holding its only material asset and would have a material adverse effect on the holders of Revlon, Inc.’s Common Stock and Preferred Stock and would be a change of control under Products Corporation’s other debt instruments. (See “Shares of Revlon, Inc. Class A Common Stock and Products Corporation’s capital stock are pledged to secure various of Revlon, Inc.’s and/or other of the Company’s affiliates’ obligations and foreclosure upon these shares or dispositions of shares could result in the acceleration of debt under the 2011 Credit Agreements and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and could have other consequences”).

Products Corporation’s substantial indebtedness could adversely affect the Company’s operations and flexibility and Products Corporation’s ability to service its debt.

Products Corporation has a substantial amount of outstanding indebtedness. As of December 31, 2011, the Company’s total indebtedness was $1,227.7 million, primarily including $796.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding under the 2011 Term Loan Facility, $330.0 million in aggregate principal face amount outstanding of Products Corporation’s 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes and $58.4 million under the Non-Contributed Loan (as hereinafter defined). Also, Revlon, Inc. has $48.6 million in liquidation preference of Preferred Stock to be paid by Revlon, Inc. at the maturity of the Preferred Stock. While Revlon, Inc. achieved net income of $53.4 million and $327.3 million (which included non-cash benefits of $16.9 million and $260.6 million related to reductions of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance at December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively) for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively, if the Company is unable to achieve sustained profitability and free cash flow in future periods, it could adversely affect the Company’s operations and Products Corporation’s ability to service its debt.

The Company is subject to the risks normally associated with substantial indebtedness, including the risk that the Company’s operating revenues will be insufficient to meet required payments of principal and interest, and the risk that Products Corporation will be unable to refinance existing indebtedness when it becomes due or that the terms of any such refinancing will be less favorable than the current terms of such indebtedness. Products Corporation’s substantial indebtedness could also have the effect of:

 

   

limiting the Company’s ability to fund (including by obtaining additional financing) the costs and expenses of the execution of the Company’s business strategy, future working capital, capital expenditures, advertising, promotional or marketing expenses, new product development costs, purchases and reconfigurations of wall displays, acquisitions, investments, restructuring programs and other general corporate requirements;

 

   

requiring the Company to dedicate a substantial portion of its cash flow from operations to payments on Products Corporation’s indebtedness, thereby reducing the availability of the Company’s cash flow for the execution of the Company’s business strategy and for other general corporate purposes;

 

   

placing the Company at a competitive disadvantage compared to its competitors that have less debt;

 

   

limiting the Company’s flexibility in responding to changes in its business and the industry in which it operates; and

 

   

making the Company more vulnerable in the event of adverse economic conditions or a downturn in its business.

 

11


Although agreements governing Products Corporation’s indebtedness, including the 2011 Credit Agreements, the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement, limit Products Corporation’s ability to borrow additional money, under certain circumstances Products Corporation is allowed to borrow a significant amount of additional money, some of which, in certain circumstances and subject to certain limitations, could be secured indebtedness. To the extent that more debt is added to the Company’s current debt levels, the risks described above may increase.

Products Corporation’s ability to pay the principal of its indebtedness depends on many factors.

The 2011 Term Loan Facility matures in November 2017, the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility matures in June 2016, the Contributed Loan under the Senior Subordinated Term Loan matures in October 2013, the Non-Contributed Loan under the Senior Subordinated Term Loan matures in October 2014, and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes mature in November 2015. Products Corporation currently anticipates that, in order to pay the principal amount of its outstanding indebtedness upon the occurrence of any event of default, to repurchase its 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes if a change of control occurs or in the event that Products Corporation’s cash flows from operations are insufficient to allow it to pay the principal amount of its indebtedness at maturity, the Company may be required to refinance Products Corporation’s indebtedness, seek to sell assets or operations, seek to sell additional Revlon, Inc. equity, seek to sell Revlon, Inc. debt securities or Products Corporation debt securities or seek additional capital contributions or loans from MacAndrews & Forbes or from the Company’s other affiliates and/or third parties. The Company may be unable to take any of these actions, because of a variety of commercial or market factors or constraints in Products Corporation’s debt instruments, including, for example, market conditions being unfavorable for an equity or debt issuance, additional capital contributions or loans not being available from affiliates and/or third parties, or that the transactions may not be permitted under the terms of the various debt instruments then in effect, such as due to restrictions on the incurrence of debt, incurrence of liens, asset dispositions and/or related party transactions. Such actions, if ever taken, may not enable the Company to satisfy its cash requirements or enable Products Corporation to comply with the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements if the actions do not result in sufficient savings or generate a sufficient amount of additional capital, as the case may be.

None of the Company’s affiliates are required to make any capital contributions, loans or other payments to Products Corporation regarding its obligations on its indebtedness. Products Corporation may not be able to pay the principal amount of its indebtedness using any of the above actions because, under certain circumstances, the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture or any of its other debt instruments (including the 2011 Credit Agreements and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement) or the debt instruments of Products Corporation’s subsidiaries then in effect may not permit the Company to take such actions. (See “Restrictions and covenants in Products Corporation’s debt agreements limit its ability to take certain actions and impose consequences in the event of failure to comply”).

The future state of the credit markets, including any volatility and/or tightening of the credit markets and reduction in credit availability, could adversely impact the Company’s ability to refinance or replace Products Corporation’s outstanding indebtedness at or prior to their respective maturity dates, which would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Restrictions and covenants in Products Corporation’s debt agreements limit its ability to take certain actions and impose consequences in the event of failure to comply.

Agreements governing Products Corporation’s outstanding indebtedness, including the 2011 Credit Agreements, the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement, contain a number of significant restrictions and covenants that limit Products Corporation’s ability (subject in each case to limited exceptions) to, among other things:

 

   

borrow money;

 

   

use assets as security in other borrowings or transactions;

 

   

pay dividends on stock or purchase stock;

 

   

sell assets and use the proceeds from such sales;

 

12


   

enter into certain transactions with affiliates;

 

   

make certain investments;

 

   

prepay, redeem or repurchase specified indebtedness; and

 

   

permit restrictions on the payment of dividends by Products Corporation’s subsidiaries.

In addition, the 2011 Credit Agreements contain financial covenants limiting Products Corporation’s first-lien senior secured debt-to-EBITDA ratio (in the case of the 2011 Term Loan Agreement) and, under certain circumstances, requiring Products Corporation to maintain a minimum consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio (in the case of the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement). These covenants affect Products Corporation’s operating flexibility by, among other things, restricting its ability to incur expenses and indebtedness that could be used to fund the costs of executing the Company’s business strategy and to grow the Company’s business, as well as to fund general corporate purposes.

A breach of the 2011 Credit Agreements would permit Products Corporation’s lenders to accelerate amounts outstanding under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which would in turn constitute an event of default under the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture, if the amount accelerated exceeds $25.0 million and such default remains uncured for 10 days following notice from MacAndrews & Forbes with respect to the Non-Contributed Loan or the trustee or the holders of at least 30% of the outstanding principal amount of the notes under the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture. In addition, holders of Products Corporation’s outstanding 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes may require Products Corporation to repurchase their respective notes in the event of a change of control under the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture. Upon a change of control, Products Corporation would be required, after fulfilling its repayment obligations under the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture, to repay in full the Senior Subordinated Term Loan, provided that Revlon, Inc. at such time has redeemed or is then concurrently redeeming all of the Preferred Stock. (See “Products Corporation’s ability to pay the principal of its indebtedness depends on many factors”). Products Corporation may not have sufficient funds at the time of any such breach of any such covenant or change of control to repay in full the borrowings under the 2011 Credit Agreements or the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement or to repurchase or redeem its outstanding 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes.

Events beyond the Company’s control could impair the Company’s operating performance, which could affect Products Corporation’s ability to comply with the terms of Products Corporation’s debt instruments. Such events may include decreased consumer spending in response to weak economic conditions or weakness in the cosmetics category in the mass retail channel; adverse changes in currency exchange rates and/or currency controls; decreased sales of the Company’s products as a result of increased competitive activities by the Company’s competitors; changes in consumer purchasing habits, including with respect to shopping channels; retailer inventory management; retailer space reconfigurations or reductions in retailer display space; changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies; less than anticipated results from the Company’s existing or new products or from its advertising, promotional and/or marketing plans; or if the Company’s expenses, including, without limitation, for pension expense under its benefit plans, insurance premiums and costs related to litigation, advertising, promotional and/or marketing activities or for sales returns related to any reduction of retail space, product discontinuances or otherwise, exceed the anticipated level of expenses.

Under such circumstances, Products Corporation may be unable to comply with the provisions of Products Corporation’s debt instruments, including the financial covenants in the 2011 Credit Agreements. If Products Corporation is unable to satisfy such covenants or other provisions at any future time, Products Corporation would need to seek an amendment or waiver of such financial covenants or other provisions. The respective lenders under the 2011 Credit Agreements may not consent to any amendment or waiver requests that Products Corporation may make in the future, and, if they do consent, they may not do so on terms which are favorable to Products Corporation and/or Revlon, Inc.

In the event that Products Corporation is unable to obtain any such waiver or amendment, Products Corporation’s inability to meet the financial covenants or other provisions of the 2011 Credit Agreements would constitute an event of default under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which would permit the bank lenders to

 

13


accelerate the 2011 Credit Agreements, which in turn would constitute an event of default under the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture, if the amount accelerated exceeds $25.0 million and such default remains uncured for 10 days following notice from MacAndrews & Forbes with respect to the Non-Contributed Loan or the trustee or the holders of at least 30% of the outstanding principal amount of the outstanding notes under the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture.

Products Corporation’s assets and/or cash flow and/or that of Products Corporation’s subsidiaries may not be sufficient to fully repay borrowings under its outstanding debt instruments, either upon maturity or if accelerated upon an event of default, and if Products Corporation is required to repurchase its outstanding 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes or repay the Senior Subordinated Term Loan or repay the 2011 Credit Agreements upon a change of control, Products Corporation may be unable to refinance or restructure the payments on such debt. Further, if Products Corporation is unable to repay, refinance or restructure its indebtedness under the 2011 Credit Agreements and/or the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes, the lenders and the noteholders, as applicable, subject to certain conditions and limitations as set forth in the third amended and restated intercreditor agreement, could proceed against the collateral securing that indebtedness.

Limits on Products Corporation’s borrowing capacity under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility may affect the Company’s ability to finance its operations.

While the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility currently provides for up to $140.0 million of commitments, Products Corporation’s ability to borrow funds under this facility is limited by a borrowing base determined relative to the value, from time to time, of eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory in the U.S. and the U.K. and eligible real property and equipment in the U.S.

If the value of these eligible assets is not sufficient to support the full $140.0 million borrowing base, Products Corporation will not have full access to the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, but rather could have access to a lesser amount determined by the borrowing base. As Products Corporation continues to manage its working capital, this could reduce the borrowing base under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility. Further, if Products Corporation borrows funds under this facility, subsequent changes in the value or eligibility of the assets within the borrowing base could cause Products Corporation to be required to pay down the amounts outstanding so that there is no amount outstanding in excess of the then-existing borrowing base.

Products Corporation’s ability to borrow under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility is also conditioned upon its compliance with other covenants in the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement, including a fixed charge coverage ratio that applies when the difference between (1) the borrowing base under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and (2) the amounts outstanding under such facility is less than $20.0 million. Because of these limitations, Products Corporation may not always be able to meet its cash requirements with funds borrowed under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

At December 31, 2011, the 2011 Term Loan Facility was fully drawn, with $796.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding, and the Company had a liquidity position of $228.0 million, consisting of cash and cash equivalents (net of any outstanding checks) of $100.7 million, as well as $127.3 million in available borrowings under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, based upon the calculated borrowing base less $11.1 million outstanding letters of credit and nil then drawn under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility at such date.

The 2011 Revolving Credit Facility is syndicated to a group of banks and financial institutions. Each bank is responsible to lend its portion of the $140.0 million commitment if and when Products Corporation seeks to draw under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility. The lenders may assign their commitments to other banks and financial institutions in certain cases without prior notice to Products Corporation. If a lender is unable to meet its lending commitment, then the other lenders under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility have the right, but not the obligation, to lend additional funds to make up for the defaulting lender’s commitment, if any. While Products Corporation has never had any of its lenders under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility fail to fulfill their lending commitment, economic conditions from late 2008 through 2011 and the volatility in the financial markets during that time period have impacted the liquidity and financial condition of certain banks and financial institutions. Based on information available to the Company, the Company has no reason to believe that any of the lenders

 

14


under Products Corporation’s 2011 Revolving Credit Facility would be unable to fulfill their commitments to lend as of December 31, 2011. However, if one or more lenders under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility were unable to fulfill their commitment to lend, such inability would impact the Company’s liquidity and, depending upon the amount involved and the Company’s liquidity requirements, could have an adverse effect on the Company’s ability to fund its operations, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

A substantial portion of Products Corporation’s indebtedness is subject to floating interest rates.

A substantial portion of Products Corporation’s indebtedness is subject to floating interest rates, which makes the Company more vulnerable in the event of adverse economic conditions, increases in prevailing interest rates or a downturn in the Company’s business. As of December 31, 2011, $793.5 million of Products Corporation’s total indebtedness, or approximately 65% of Products Corporation’s total indebtedness, was subject to floating interest rates.

Under the 2011 Term Loan Facility, loans bear interest, at Products Corporation’s option, at either the Eurodollar Rate (as defined in the 2011 Term Loan Agreement) plus 3.50% per annum (provided that in no event shall the Eurodollar Rate (which is based upon LIBOR) be less than 1.25% per annum), or the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the 2011 Term Loan Agreement) plus 2.50% per annum, which Alternate Base Rate is based on the greater of Citibank, N.A.’s announced base rate and the U.S. federal funds rate plus 0.5% (provided that in no event shall the Alternative Base Rate be less than 2.25% per annum). At December 31, 2011, the Eurodollar Rate, LIBOR and the Alternate Base Rate were 1.25% (as a result of the Eurodollar Rate floor referred to above), 0.59% and 3.25%, respectively. Borrowings under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility (other than loans in foreign currencies) bear interest at a rate equal to, at Products Corporation’s option, either (i) the Eurodollar Rate plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid below, or (ii) the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement) plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid below:

 

Excess Availability

   Alternate Base
Rate Loans
    Eurodollar Loans,
Eurocurrency
Loans or Local
Rate Loans
 

Greater than or equal to $92,000,000

     1.00     2.00

Less than $92,000,000 but greater than or equal to $46,000,000

     1.25     2.25

Less than $46,000,000

     1.50     2.50

Local Loans (as defined in the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement) bear interest, if mutually acceptable to Products Corporation and the relevant foreign lenders, at the Local Rate, and otherwise (i) if in foreign currencies or in U.S. dollars at the Eurodollar Rate or the Eurocurrency Rate plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid above or (ii) if in U.S. dollars at the Alternate Base Rate plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid above.

If any of LIBOR, the base rate, the U.S. federal funds rate or such equivalent local currency rate increases, the Company’s debt service costs will increase to the extent that Products Corporation has elected such rates for its outstanding loans.

Based on the amounts outstanding under the 2011 Credit Agreements and other short-term borrowings (which, in the aggregate, are Products Corporation’s only debt currently subject to floating interest rates) as of December 31, 2011, an increase in LIBOR of 1% would increase the Company’s annual interest expense by $8.1 million (assuming that the Eurodollar Rate is at least 1.25% per annum). Increased debt service costs would adversely affect the Company’s cash flow. While Products Corporation may enter into interest hedging contracts, Products Corporation may not be able to do so on a cost-effective basis, any hedging transactions it might enter into may not achieve their intended purpose and shifts in interest rates may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company depends on its Oxford, North Carolina facility for production of a substantial portion of its products. Disruptions at this facility, or at other third party facilities at which the Company’s products are manufactured, could affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company produces a substantial portion of its products at its Oxford, North Carolina facility. Significant unscheduled downtime at this facility, or at other third party facilities at which the Company’s products are manufactured, whether due to equipment breakdowns, power failures, natural disasters, weather conditions hampering delivery schedules or other disruptions, including those caused by transitioning manufacturing from other facilities to the Company’s Oxford, North Carolina facility, or any other cause could adversely affect the Company’s ability to provide products to its customers, which could affect the Company’s sales, business, financial condition and/or results of operations. Additionally, if product sales exceed forecasts or production, the Company could, from time to time, not have an adequate supply of products to meet customer demands, which could cause the Company to lose sales.

The Company’s new product introductions may not be as successful as the Company anticipates, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company has a rigorous process for the continuous development and evaluation of new product concepts, led by executives in marketing, sales, research and development, product development, operations, law and finance. Each new product launch, including those resulting from this new product development process, carries risks, as well as the possibility of unexpected consequences, including:

 

   

the acceptance of the new product launches by, and sales of such new products to, the Company’s retail customers may not be as high as the Company anticipates;

 

   

the Company’s advertising, promotional and marketing strategies for its new products may be less effective than planned and may fail to effectively reach the targeted consumer base or engender the desired consumption;

 

   

the rate of purchases by the Company’s consumers may not be as high as the Company anticipates;

 

   

the Company’s wall displays to showcase the new products may fail to achieve their intended effects;

 

   

the Company may experience out-of-stocks and/or product returns exceeding its expectations as a result of its new product launches or retailer space reconfigurations or reductions in retail display space or the Company’s net sales may be impacted by retailer inventory management or changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies;

 

   

the Company may incur costs exceeding its expectations as a result of the continued development and launch of new products, including, for example, advertising, promotional and marketing expenses, sales return expenses or other costs related to launching new products;

 

   

the Company may experience a decrease in sales of certain of the Company’s existing products as a result of newly-launched products;

 

   

the Company’s product pricing strategies for new product launches may not be accepted by its retail customers and/or its consumers, which may result in the Company’s sales being less than it anticipates; and

 

   

any delays or difficulties impacting the Company’s ability, or the ability of the Company’s suppliers, to timely manufacture, distribute and ship products, displays or display walls in connection with launching new products, such as due to inclement weather conditions or those delays or difficulties discussed under “The Company depends on its Oxford, North Carolina facility for production of a substantial portion of its products. Disruptions at this facility, or at other third party facilities at which the Company’s products are manufactured, could affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations” could affect the Company’s ability to ship and deliver products to meet its retail customers’ reset deadlines.

 

16


Each of the risks referred to above could delay or impede the Company’s ability to achieve its sales objectives, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company’s ability to service its debt and meet its cash requirements depends on many factors, including achieving anticipated levels of revenue and expenses. If such revenue or expense levels prove to be other than as anticipated, the Company may be unable to meet its cash requirements or Products Corporation may be unable to meet the requirements of the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company currently expects that operating revenues, cash on hand, and funds available for borrowing under the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement and other permitted lines of credit will be sufficient to enable the Company to cover its operating expenses for 2012, including cash requirements in connection with the payment of expenses in connection with the continued execution of the Company’s business strategy, insurance premiums, purchases of permanent wall displays, capital expenditure requirements, debt service payments and costs, tax payments and regularly scheduled pension and post-retirement plan contributions, payments in connection with the Company’s restructuring programs, severance not otherwise included in the Company’s restructuring programs, debt repurchases and costs related to litigation.

If the Company’s anticipated level of revenue is not achieved, however, because of, for example, decreased consumer spending in response to weak economic conditions or weakness in the cosmetics category in the mass retail channel; adverse changes in currency exchange rates and/or currency controls; decreased sales of the Company’s products as a result of increased competitive activities by the Company’s competitors; changes in consumer purchasing habits, including with respect to shopping channels; retailer inventory management; retailer space reconfigurations or reductions in retailer display space; changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies; less than anticipated results from the Company’s existing or new products or from its advertising, promotional and/or marketing plans; or if the Company’s expenses, including, without limitation, for pension expense under its benefit plans, insurance premiums and costs related to litigation, advertising, promotional or marketing activities or for sales returns related to any reduction of retail space, product discontinuances or otherwise, exceed the anticipated level of expenses, the Company’s current sources of funds may be insufficient to meet its cash requirements. In addition, such developments, if significant, could reduce the Company’s revenues and could adversely affect Products Corporation’s ability to comply with certain financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements.

If operating revenues, cash on hand and funds available for borrowing are insufficient to cover the Company’s expenses or are insufficient to enable Products Corporation to comply with the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements, the Company could be required to adopt one or more of the alternatives listed below:

 

   

delaying the implementation of or revising certain aspects of the Company’s business strategy;

 

   

reducing or delaying purchases of wall displays or advertising, promotional or marketing expenses;

 

   

reducing or delaying capital spending;

 

   

implementing new restructuring programs;

 

   

refinancing Products Corporation’s indebtedness;

 

   

selling assets or operations;

 

   

seeking additional capital contributions and/or loans from MacAndrews & Forbes, the Company’s other affiliates and/or third parties;

 

   

selling additional Revlon, Inc. equity or debt securities or Products Corporation debt securities; or

 

   

reducing other discretionary spending.

 

17


There can be no assurance that the Company would be able to take any of these actions, because of a variety of commercial or market factors or constraints in Products Corporation’s debt instruments, including, for example, market conditions being unfavorable for an equity or debt issuance, additional capital contributions or loans not being available from affiliates and/or third parties, or that the transactions may not be permitted under the terms of Products Corporation’s various debt instruments then in effect, such as due to restrictions on the incurrence of debt, incurrence of liens, asset dispositions and/or related party transactions. If the Company is required to take any of these actions, it could have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Such actions, if ever taken, may not enable the Company to satisfy its cash requirements or enable Products Corporation to comply with the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements if the actions do not result in sufficient savings or generate a sufficient amount of additional capital, as the case may be. (See “Restrictions and covenants in Products Corporation’s debt agreements limit its ability to take certain actions and impose consequences in the event of failure to comply” which discusses, among other things, the consequences of noncompliance with Products Corporation’s credit agreement covenants).

Economic conditions could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations or on the financial condition of its customers and suppliers.

The economic conditions, both in the U.S. and in many other countries where the Company operates, have contributed and may continue to contribute to high unemployment levels, lower consumer spending and reduced credit availability, and have impacted business and consumer confidence. Such conditions could have an impact on consumer purchases and/or retail customer purchases of the Company’s products, which could result in a reduction of net sales, operating income and/or cash flows. Additionally, disruptions in the credit and other financial markets and economic conditions could, among other things, impair the financial condition of one or more of the Company’s customers or suppliers, thereby increasing the risk of customer bad debts or non-performance by suppliers. These conditions could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company depends on a limited number of customers for a large portion of its net sales and the loss of one or more of these customers could reduce the Company’s net sales and have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

In 2011, 2010 and 2009, Walmart, Inc. accounted for approximately 22%, 22% and 23%, respectively, of the Company’s worldwide net sales. The Company expects that for future periods, Walmart and a small number of other customers will, in the aggregate, continue to account for a large portion of the Company’s net sales. These customers have demanded, and may continue to demand, increased service and other accommodations. The Company may be affected by changes in the policies and demands of its retail customers relating to service levels, inventory de-stocking, pricing and promotional strategies or limitations on access to wall display space. As is customary in the consumer products industry, none of the Company’s customers is under an obligation to continue purchasing products from the Company in the future.

The loss of Walmart or one or more of the Company’s other customers that may account for a significant portion of the Company’s net sales, or any significant decrease in sales to these customers, including as a result of retailer consolidation, retailer inventory management, changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies or retailer space configurations or any significant decrease in the Company’s retail display space in any of these customers’ stores, could reduce the Company’s net sales and/or operating income and therefore could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Declines in the financial markets may result in increased pension expense and increased cash contributions to the Company’s pension plans.

Declines in the U.S. and global financial markets in late 2008 resulted in significant declines in pension plan assets for 2008, which resulted in increased pension expense for 2009 and increased cash contributions to the Company’s pension plans for 2010 and beyond. Future volatility in the financial markets may further affect the Company’s return on pension plan assets for 2012 and in subsequent years. Interest rate levels will affect the discount rate used to value the Company’s year-end pension benefit obligations. One or more of these factors,

 

18


individually or taken together, could further impact required cash contributions to the Company’s pension plans and pension expense in 2012 and beyond. Any one or more of these conditions could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company may be unable to maintain or increase its sales through the Company’s primary distribution channels, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

In the U.S., mass volume retailers and chain drug and food stores currently are the primary distribution channels for the Company’s products. Additionally, other channels, including prestige and department stores, television shopping, door-to-door, specialty stores, the internet, perfumeries and other distribution outlets, combine to account for a significant amount of sales of cosmetics and beauty care products. A decrease in consumer demand in the U.S. mass retail channel for color cosmetics, retailer inventory management, changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies, a reduction in retailer display space and/or a change in consumers’ purchasing habits, such as by buying more cosmetics and beauty care products in channels in which the Company does not currently compete, could impact the sales of the Company’s products through these distribution channels, which could reduce the Company’s net sales and which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Competition in the cosmetics and beauty care products business could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The cosmetics and beauty care products business is highly competitive. The Company competes primarily by:

 

   

developing quality products with innovative performance features, shades, finishes and packaging;

 

   

educating consumers about the benefits of the Company’s products;

 

   

anticipating and responding to changing consumer demands in a timely manner, including the timing of new product introductions and line extensions;

 

   

offering attractively priced products, relative to the product benefits provided;

 

   

maintaining favorable brand recognition;

 

   

generating competitive margins and inventory turns for the Company’s retail customers by providing relevant products and executing effective pricing, incentive and promotion programs;

 

   

ensuring product availability through effective planning and replenishment collaboration with retailers;

 

   

providing strong and effective advertising, promotion, marketing and merchandising support;

 

   

maintaining an effective sales force; and

 

   

obtaining and retaining sufficient retail display space, optimal in-store positioning and effective presentation of the Company’s products at retail.

An increase in or change in the current level of competition that the Company faces could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

In addition, the Company competes against a number of multi-national manufacturers, some of which are larger and have substantially greater resources than the Company, and which may therefore have the ability to spend more aggressively than the Company on advertising, promotions and marketing and have more flexibility than the Company to respond to changing business and economic conditions. In addition to products sold in the mass retail channel, the Company’s products also compete with similar products sold through other channels, including prestige and department stores, television shopping, door-to-door, specialty stores, the internet, perfumeries and other distribution outlets.

Additionally, the Company’s major retail customers periodically assess the allocation of retail display space among competitors and in the course of doing so could elect to reduce the display space allocated to the Company’s products, if, for example, the Company’s marketing strategies for its new and/or existing products

 

19


are less effective than planned, fail to effectively reach the targeted consumer base or engender the desired consumption; and/or the rate of purchases by the Company’s consumers are not as high as the Company anticipates. Any significant loss of display space could have an adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company’s foreign operations are subject to a variety of social, political and economic risks and have been, and are expected to continue to be, affected by foreign currency fluctuations and/or currency controls, which could adversely affect the results of the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations and the value of its foreign assets.

As of December 31, 2011, the Company had operations based in 14 foreign countries and its products were sold throughout the world. The Company is exposed to the risk of changes in social, political and economic conditions, including inflation, inherent in operating in foreign countries, including those in Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America (including Venezuela) and South Africa, which could adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations. Such changes include changes in the laws and policies that govern foreign investment in countries where the Company has operations, hyperinflation, currency devaluation, currency controls, changes in consumer purchasing habits including as to shopping channels, as well as, to a lesser extent, changes in U.S. laws and regulations relating to foreign trade and investment.

The Company’s subsidiary in Venezuela (“Revlon Venezuela”) accounted for approximately 2% and 3% of the Company’s net sales for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Effective January 1, 2010, Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy under U.S. GAAP and as a result of the hyperinflationary designation and devaluation of the local currency in Venezuela, the Company’s results of operations in 2010 were adversely impacted.

Currency restrictions enacted by the Venezuelan government in 2003 have become more restrictive and have impacted the ability of Revlon Venezuela to obtain U.S. dollars in exchange for local currency at the official foreign exchange rates. As a result, during 2011, the Company used alternative foreign currency markets with less favorable exchange rates to access U.S. Dollars, which adversely impacted the Company’s results of operations. (See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations -Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources – Impact of Foreign Currency Translation - Venezuela” for details).

The Company’s net sales outside of the U.S. for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009 were approximately 45%, 45% and 42% of the Company’s total consolidated net sales, respectively. Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates have affected and may continue to affect the Company’s results of operations and the value of its foreign assets in 2011 and 2012, respectively, which in turn may adversely affect the Company’s reported net sales and earnings and the comparability of period-to-period results of operations.

Products Corporation enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts to hedge certain net cash flows denominated in foreign currencies. The foreign currency forward exchange contracts are entered into primarily for the purpose of hedging anticipated inventory purchases and certain intercompany payments denominated in foreign currencies and generally have maturities of less than one year. At December 31, 2011, the notional amount of Products Corporation’s foreign currency forward exchange contracts was $58.4 million. The foreign currency forward exchange contracts that Products Corporation enters into may not adequately protect against foreign currency fluctuations.

The March 2011 disaster in Japan and its aftermath could impact the Company’s global supply chain from Japan, which could adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company is continuing to assess the potential impact of the March 2011 disaster in Japan and its aftermath on the Company’s global supply chain. The Company purchases materials from suppliers in Japan and from other suppliers who source materials from suppliers in Japan. Any significant interruption in the supply of materials from Japan could adversely affect the Company’s global supply chain and its ability to produce certain products, most of which are sold globally.

Terrorist attacks, acts of war or military actions may adversely affect the territories in which the Company operates and the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

On September 11, 2001, the U.S. was the target of terrorist attacks of unprecedented scope. These attacks contributed to major instability in the U.S. and other financial markets and reduced consumer confidence. These terrorist attacks, as well as terrorist attacks such as those that have occurred in Madrid, Spain and London, England, attempted attacks, military responses to terrorist attacks and future developments, or other military actions, may adversely affect prevailing economic conditions, resulting in reduced consumer spending and reduced demand for the Company’s products. These developments subject the Company’s worldwide operations to increased risks and, depending on their magnitude, could reduce net sales and therefore could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company’s products are subject to federal, state and international regulations that could adversely affect the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The Company is subject to regulation by the FTC and the FDA in the U.S., as well as various other federal, state, local and foreign regulatory authorities, including those in the EU, Canada and other countries in which the Company operates. The Company’s Oxford, North Carolina manufacturing facility is registered with the FDA as a drug manufacturing establishment, permitting the manufacture of cosmetics that contain over-the-counter drug ingredients, such as sunscreens and anti-perspirants. Regulations in the U.S., the EU, Canada and other countries in which the Company operates that are designed to protect consumers or the environment have an increasing influence on the Company’s product claims, ingredients and packaging. To the extent federal, state, local and/or foreign regulatory changes occur in the future, they could require the Company to reformulate or discontinue certain of its products or revise its product packaging or labeling, any of which could result in, among other things, increased costs to the Company, delays in product launches, product returns or recalls and lower net sales, and therefore could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The failure of the Company’s information technology systems could disrupt the Company’s business operations which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

The operation of the Company’s business depends on its information technology systems. The Company relies on its information technology systems to effectively manage, among other things, the Company’s business data, communications, supply chain, inventory management, customer order entry and order fulfillment, processing transactions, summarizing and reporting results of operations, human resources benefits and payroll management, complying with regulatory, legal or tax requirements and other processes and data necessary to manage the Company’s business. The failure of the Company’s information technology systems to perform as the Company anticipates could disrupt the Company’s business and could result in, among other things, transaction errors, processing inefficiencies, loss of data and the loss of sales and customers, which could cause the Company’s business and results of operations to suffer. In addition, the Company’s information technology systems may be vulnerable to damage or interruption from circumstances beyond the Company’s control, including, without limitation, fire, natural disasters, power outages, systems failure, system conversions, security breaches, cyber-attacks, viruses and/or human error. In any such event, the Company could be required to make a significant investment to fix or replace its information technology systems, and the Company could experience interruptions in its ability to service its customers. Any such damage or interruption could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations.

Shares of Revlon, Inc. Class A Common Stock and Products Corporation’s capital stock are pledged to secure various of Revlon, Inc.’s and/or other of the Company’s affiliates’ obligations and foreclosure upon these shares or dispositions of shares could result in the acceleration of debt under the 2011 Credit Agreements and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and could have other consequences.

All of Products Corporation’s shares of common stock are pledged to secure Revlon, Inc.’s guarantee under the 2011 Credit Agreements and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes. MacAndrews & Forbes has advised the Company that it has pledged shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock to secure certain obligations of

 

21


MacAndrews & Forbes. Additional shares of Revlon, Inc. and shares of common stock of intermediate holding companies between Revlon, Inc. and MacAndrews & Forbes may from time to time be pledged to secure obligations of MacAndrews & Forbes. A default under any of these obligations that are secured by the pledged shares could cause a foreclosure with respect to such shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock, Products Corporation’s common stock or stock of intermediate holding companies between Revlon, Inc. and MacAndrews & Forbes.

A foreclosure upon any such shares of common stock or dispositions of shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock, Products Corporation’s common stock or stock of intermediate holding companies between Revlon, Inc. and MacAndrews & Forbes which are beneficially owned by MacAndrews & Forbes could, in a sufficient amount, constitute a “change of control” under the 2011 Credit Agreements, the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture. A change of control constitutes an event of default under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which would permit Products Corporation’s lenders to accelerate amounts outstanding under the 2011 Credit Facilities. In addition, holders of the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes may require Products Corporation to repurchase their respective notes under those circumstances. Upon a change of control, Products Corporation would also be required, after fulfilling its repayment obligations under the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture, to repay in full the Senior Subordinated Term Loan, provided that Revlon, Inc. at such time has redeemed or is then concurrently redeeming the Preferred Stock.

Products Corporation may not have sufficient funds at the time of any such change of control to repay in full the borrowings under the 2011 Credit Facilities or to repurchase or redeem the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes and/or to repay the Contributed Loan that Revlon, Inc. expects to use to redeem the Preferred Stock and/or repay the Non-Contributed Loan. (See “The Company’s ability to service its debt and meet its cash requirements depends on many factors, including achieving anticipated levels of revenue and expenses. If such revenue or expense levels prove to be other than as anticipated, the Company may be unable to meet its cash requirements or Products Corporation may be unable to meet the requirements of the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations”).

MacAndrews & Forbes has the power to direct and control the Company’s business.

MacAndrews & Forbes is wholly-owned by Ronald O. Perelman. Mr. Perelman, through MacAndrews & Forbes, beneficially owned, at December 31, 2011, approximately 78% of Revlon, Inc.’s outstanding Class A and Class B Common Stock (representing approximately 77% of the combined voting power of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock, Class B Common Stock and Preferred Stock). As a result, MacAndrews & Forbes is able to control the election of the entire Board of Directors of Revlon, Inc. and Products Corporation (as it is a wholly owned subsidiary of Revlon, Inc.) and controls the vote on all matters submitted to a vote of Revlon, Inc.’s and Products Corporation’s stockholders, including the approval of mergers, consolidations, sales of some, all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, issuances of capital stock and similar transactions.

Delaware law, provisions of the Company’s governing documents and the fact that the Company is a controlled company could make a third-party acquisition of the Company difficult.

The Company is a Delaware corporation. The General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware contains provisions that could make it more difficult for a third party to acquire control of the Company. MacAndrews & Forbes controls the vote on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders, including the election of the Company’s entire Board of Directors and approval of mergers, consolidations, sales of some, all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, issuances of capital stock and similar transactions.

The Company’s certificate of incorporation makes available additional authorized shares of Class A Common Stock for issuance from time to time at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors without further action by the Company’s stockholders, except where stockholder approval is required by law or any applicable NYSE requirements. The Company’s certificate of incorporation also authorizes “blank check” preferred stock, whereby the Company’s Board of Directors has the authority to issue shares of preferred stock from time to time in one or more series and to fix the voting rights, if any, designations, powers, preferences and

 

22


the relative participation, optional or other rights, if any, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions, of any unissued series of preferred stock, to fix the number of shares constituting such series, and to increase or decrease the number of shares of any such series (but not below the number of shares of such series then outstanding).

This flexibility to authorize and issue additional shares may be utilized for a variety of corporate purposes, including future public offerings to raise additional capital and corporate acquisitions. These provisions and MacAndrews & Forbes’ control of the Company, may be construed as having an anti-takeover effect to the extent they would discourage or render more difficult an attempt to obtain control of the Company by means of a proxy contest, tender offer, merger or otherwise, which could affect the market price for the Company’s equity securities.

Future sales or issuances of Common Stock or the Company’s issuance of other equity securities may depress the Company’s stock price or dilute existing stockholders.

No prediction can be made as to the effect, if any, that future sales of Common Stock, or the availability of Common Stock for future sales, will have on the market price of the Company’s Class A Common Stock. Sales in the public market of substantial amounts of Common Stock, including shares held by MacAndrews & Forbes, or investor perception that such sales could occur, could adversely affect prices for the Company’s Class A Common Stock.

In addition, as stated above, the Company’s certificate of incorporation makes available additional authorized shares of Common Stock for issuance from time to time at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors without further action by the Company’s stockholders, except where stockholder approval is required by law or NYSE requirements. The Company may also issue shares of “blank check” preferred stock or securities convertible into either common stock or preferred stock. Any future issuance of additional authorized shares of the Company’s Common Stock, preferred stock or securities convertible into shares of the Company’s Common Stock or preferred stock may dilute the Company’s existing stockholders’ equity interest in the Company. Such future issuances could, among other things, dilute the earnings per share of the Company’s Class A Common Stock and the equity and voting rights of those stockholders holding the Company’s Class A Common Stock or Preferred Stock at the time of any such future issuances and could dilute the consideration per share payable to holders of Class A Common Stock and Preferred Stock upon the occurrence of certain change of control transactions.

There is no active listed trading market for Revlon, Inc.’s Preferred Stock and there can be no assurance that one will develop or be maintained.

There can be no assurance that any market for the Preferred Stock will develop or, if one does develop, that it will be maintained. Revlon, Inc. has not applied, nor does it intend to apply, for listing of the Preferred Stock on any securities exchange. The liquidity of the trading market in the Preferred Stock, and the market price quoted for the Preferred Stock, may be materially adversely affected by:

 

   

changes in the overall market for preferred equity securities;

 

   

changes in the Company’s financial performance or prospects;

 

   

the prospects of other companies in the Company’s industry generally;

 

   

the number of holders of Preferred Stock;

 

   

the interest of securities dealers in making a market for Preferred Stock; and

 

   

prevailing interest rates.

Revlon, Inc. may be restricted by the terms of the applicable provisions of Delaware law from paying dividends on the Preferred Stock and/or redeeming the Series A Preferred Stock.

Under Delaware law, Revlon, Inc. is permitted to pay dividends only from its “surplus,” which is the excess of Revlon, Inc.’s total assets over the sum of its liabilities plus the aggregate par value of Revlon, Inc.’s outstanding capital stock, or if Revlon, Inc. has no surplus, out of its net profits for the year in which the dividend is declared and/or for the immediately preceding fiscal year. Revlon, Inc. cannot assure holders of the Preferred

 

23


Stock that Revlon, Inc. will have any surplus or net profits so that it will be able to pay quarterly dividends on the Preferred Stock. Additionally, Revlon, Inc. is permitted to redeem its capital stock, including the Preferred Stock, only from its surplus. Revlon, Inc. cannot assure holders of the Preferred Stock that Revlon, Inc. will have any surplus at such time as it may be required to redeem the Preferred Stock. In the event that Revlon, Inc. fails to pay any required dividends on the Preferred Stock, the amount of such unpaid dividends will be added to the amount payable to holders of the Preferred Stock upon redemption.

Holders of Preferred Stock will only participate on a limited basis in any future earnings or growth of the Company’s business or the proceeds from one of certain specified change of control transactions.

While holders of the Preferred Stock are entitled to quarterly dividends at an annual rate of 12.75% over the four-year term of the Preferred Stock, such holders will not benefit from increases, if any, in the value of the Company, including, without limitation, any increases due to a general economic recovery, unless there is a change of control of the Company prior to October 8, 2012. If such an event occurs during such period, participation by holders of Preferred Stock will be limited to the receipt of payments up to an aggregate of $12 per share (including the liquidation preference, dividends and payments upon certain specified change of control transactions).

The Preferred Stock ranks senior to Revlon, Inc.’s Common Stock and is subordinate to the Company’s indebtedness.

The Preferred Stock ranks senior to Revlon, Inc.’s Common Stock and subordinate to all of the Company’s present and future indebtedness, including, without limitation, in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company. However, pursuant to the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement, such loan may not be repaid prior to its respective maturity dates (which is October 8, 2013 in the case of the Contributed Loan and which is October 8, 2014 in the case of the Non-Contributed Loan) unless all shares of Preferred Stock have been, or are being, redeemed and all payments due thereon have been, or are being, paid in full. Accordingly, upon any such liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company prior to the respective maturity dates of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan, all payments then due to:

 

   

debt holders (other than holders of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan) will be made first;

 

   

holders of the Preferred Stock will be made next; and

 

   

holders of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan will be made last.

Dividends on the Preferred Stock are payable in cash quarterly on January 8, April 8, July 8 and October 8 of each year during the term of the Preferred Stock. Revlon, Inc. expects that it will continue to pay such dividends using the interest payments received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation on the Contributed Loan. On October 8, 2013, Revlon, Inc. is required to redeem the Preferred Stock. Revlon, Inc. expects to pay the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock on that date with the cash payment to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation in respect of the maturity of the Contributed Loan. There can be no assurances that Products Contribution will have sufficient cash to pay the interest or repay the principal amount of the Contributed Loan when due or that Revlon, Inc. will have sufficient cash to pay dividends on the Preferred Stock or to redeem the Preferred Stock at the end of its four-year term.

Holders of Revlon, Inc.’s capital stock are subject to future economic dilution in the event that Revlon, Inc. issues equity to third-parties who are not affiliated with MacAndrews & Forbes or to MacAndrews & Forbes on arms’ length terms.

Revlon, Inc. is not prohibited from issuing equity to third parties or from issuing equity to MacAndrews & Forbes or its affiliates on arms’ length terms. In the event of any such issuance, holders of Revlon, Inc.’s capital stock, including the Preferred Stock and Revlon, Inc.’s Common Stock, will be economically diluted, and their participation in increases, if any, in the value of the Company will be proportionally diluted.

In addition to the facilities described above, the Company owns and leases additional facilities in various areas throughout the world, including the lease for the Company’s executive offices in New York, New York (approximately 76,500 square feet as of December 31, 2011). Management considers the Company’s facilities to be well-maintained and satisfactory for the Company’s operations, and believes that the Company’s facilities and third party contractual supplier arrangements provide sufficient capacity for its current and expected production requirements.

The Company also owns a facility in Venzuela, that was destroyed by a fire in June 2011. (See “Fire at Revlon Venezuela Facility,” within Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations, for further discussion).

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

The Company is involved in various routine legal proceedings incident to the ordinary course of its business. The Company believes that the outcome of all pending legal proceedings in the aggregate is unlikely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or its results of operations. However, in light of the uncertainties involved in legal proceedings generally, the ultimate outcome of a particular matter could be material to the Company’s operating results for a particular period depending on, among other things, the size of the loss or the nature of the liability imposed and the level of the Company’s income for that particular period.

As previously announced, on October 8, 2009, the Company consummated its voluntary exchange offer in which, among other things, Revlon, Inc. issued to stockholders who elected to exchange shares (other than MacAndrews & Forbes) 9,336,905 shares of its Preferred Stock in exchange for the same number of shares of Revlon, Inc. Class A Common Stock tendered in the Exchange Offer (the “Exchange Offer”). On April 24, 2009, May 1, 2009, May 5, 2009 and May 12, 2009, respectively, four purported class actions were filed by each of Vern Mercier, Arthur Jurkowitz, Suri Lefkowitz and T. Walter Heiser in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”). On May 4, 2009, a purported class action was filed by Stanley E. Sullivan in the Supreme Court of New York, New York County. Each such lawsuit was brought against Revlon, Inc., Revlon, Inc.’s then directors and MacAndrews & Forbes, and challenged a merger proposal made by MacAndrews & Forbes on April 13, 2009, which would have resulted in MacAndrews & Forbes and certain of its affiliates owning 100% of Revlon, Inc.’s outstanding Common Stock (in lieu of consummating such merger proposal, the Company consummated the aforementioned Exchange Offer). Each action sought, among other things, to enjoin the proposed merger transaction. On June 24, 2009, the Chancery Court consolidated the four Delaware actions (the “Initial Consolidated Action”), and appointed lead counsel for plaintiffs. As announced on August 10, 2009, an agreement in principle was reached to settle the Initial Consolidated Action, as set forth in a Memorandum of Understanding (as amended in September 2009, the “Settlement Agreement”).

 

25


On December 24, 2009, an amended complaint was filed in the Sullivan action alleging, among other things, that defendants should have disclosed in the Company’s Offer to Exchange for the Exchange Offer information regarding the Company’s financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2009. On January 6, 2010, an amended complaint was filed by plaintiffs in the Initial Consolidated Action making allegations similar to those in the amended Sullivan complaint. Revlon initially believed that by filing the amended complaint, plaintiffs in the Initial Consolidated Action had formally repudiated the Settlement Agreement, and on January 8, 2010, defendants filed a motion to enforce the Settlement Agreement.

In addition to the amended complaints in the Initial Consolidated Action and the Sullivan action, on December 21, 2009, Revlon, Inc.’s current directors, a former director and MacAndrews & Forbes were named as defendants in a purported class action filed in the Chancery Court by Edward Gutman. Also on December 21, 2009, a second purported class action was filed in the Chancery Court against Revlon, Inc.’s current directors and a former director by Lawrence Corneck. The Gutman and Corneck actions make allegations similar to those in the amended complaints in the Sullivan action and the Initial Consolidated Action. On January 15, 2010, the Chancery Court consolidated the Gutman and Corneck actions with the Initial Consolidated Action (the Initial Consolidated Action, as consolidated with the Gutman and Corneck actions, is hereafter referred to as the “Consolidated Action”). A briefing schedule was then set to determine the leadership structure for plaintiffs in the Consolidated Action.

On March 16, 2010, after hearing oral argument on the leadership issue, the Chancery Court changed the leadership structure for plaintiffs in the Consolidated Action. Thereafter, newly appointed counsel for the plaintiffs in the Consolidated Action and the defendants agreed that the defendants would withdraw their motion to enforce the Settlement Agreement and that merits discovery would proceed. Defendants agreed not to withdraw any of the concessions that had been provided to the plaintiffs as part of the Settlement Agreement.

On May 25, 2010, plaintiffs’ counsel in the Consolidated Action filed an amended complaint alleging breaches of fiduciary duties arising out of the Exchange Offer and that defendants should have disclosed in the Company’s Offer to Exchange information regarding the Company’s financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2009. On January 10, 2012, plaintiffs’ counsel filed a motion for class certification. That motion is not yet fully briefed. Merits discovery is proceeding in the Consolidated Action.

On December 31, 2009, a purported class action was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware by John Garofalo against Revlon, Inc., Revlon, Inc.’s current directors, a former director and MacAndrews & Forbes alleging federal and state law claims stemming from the alleged failure to disclose in the Offer to Exchange certain information relating to the Company’s financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2009. On July 29, 2011, the plaintiff in this action filed an amended complaint. On January 31, 2012, defendants filed a motion to dismiss the amended complaint in the Garofalo action. That motion is not yet fully briefed. Defendants previously reached an agreement with the plaintiff in the Garofalo action to permit the plaintiff to participate in merits discovery in the Consolidated Action, and have agreed to permit plaintiff to continue to participate in the merits discovery while the motion to dismiss is pending. An agreement has also been reached with the plaintiff in the Sullivan action to stay proceedings in that action, including any response to the amended complaint, until June 29, 2012, so that the plaintiff can participate in the merits discovery in the Consolidated Action.

On May 11, 2010, a purported derivative action was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware by Richard Smutek, derivatively and on behalf of Revlon, Inc. against Revlon, Inc.’s current directors and MacAndrews & Forbes alleging breach of fiduciary duty in allowing the Exchange Offer to proceed and failing to disclose in the Offer to Exchange certain information related to the Company’s financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2009. On August 16, 2010, defendants moved to dismiss the complaint. Briefing on defendants’ motions to dismiss was completed on December 10, 2010. Thereafter, the parties requested oral argument on the motions to dismiss. The motions to dismiss are currently pending. On September 27, 2010, plaintiff filed a motion to compel discovery. In response, defendants moved to strike plaintiff’s motion to compel discovery or, in the alternative, for an extension of time for defendants to respond to plaintiff’s motion. On October 17, 2011, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware denied plaintiff’s motion to compel and granted defendants’ motion to strike.

 

26


Plaintiffs in each of these actions are seeking, among other things, an award of damages and the costs and disbursements of such actions, including a reasonable allowance for the fees and expenses of each such plaintiff’s attorneys and experts. Because the Smutek action is styled as a derivative action on behalf of the Company, any award of damages, costs and disbursements would be made to and for the benefit of the Company.

The Company believes the allegations contained in the amended Sullivan complaint, the amended complaint in the Consolidated Action, the amended Garofalo complaint and the Smutek complaint are without merit and intends to vigorously defend against them. The Company believes it has substantial factual and legal defenses to the claims at issue and believes that it would prevail at trial. However, in an effort to mitigate the utilization of time and resources on these matters, the Company has had discussions regarding settlement of these matters. Based on the current state of discussions, it appears that the likelihood of a settlement is remote at this time.

PART II

Item 5. Market for Registrant’s Common Equity, Related Stockholder Matters and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities

MacAndrews & Forbes, which is wholly-owned by Ronald O. Perelman, at December 31, 2011 beneficially owned (i) 37,544,640 shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock, with a par value of $0.01 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”) (25,264,938 shares of which were beneficially owned by MacAndrews & Forbes, 7,718,092 shares of which were owned by a holding company, RCH Holdings One, Inc. (of which each of Mr. Perelman and The Ronald O. Perelman 2008 Trust owns 50% of the shares) and 4,561,610 shares of which were beneficially owned by a family member of Mr. Perelman with respect to which shares MacAndrews & Forbes holds a voting proxy), and (ii) all of the outstanding 3,125,000 shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class B Common Stock, with a par value of $0.01 per share (the “Class B Common Stock” and together with the Class A Common Stock, the “Common Stock”).

Based on the shares referenced in clauses (i) and (ii) above, and including Mr. Perelman’s 10,000 vested stock options, Mr. Perelman, directly and indirectly, through MacAndrews & Forbes, at December 31, 2011, beneficially owned approximately 77% of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock and 100% of Revlon, Inc.’s Class B Common Stock, together representing approximately 78% of the combined Revlon, Inc. Class A and Class B Common Stock, and beneficially owned approximately 66% of the combined Revlon, Inc. Class A and Class B Common Stock and Preferred Stock (representing approximately 77% of the combined voting power of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A and Class B Common Stock and Preferred Stock). The remaining 11,513,368 shares of Class A Common Stock and 9,336,905 shares of Preferred Stock, in each case outstanding at December 31, 2011, were owned by the public.

Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock is listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”). As of December 31, 2011, there were 517 holders of record of Class A Common Stock (which does not include the number of beneficial owners holding indirectly through a broker, bank or other nominee). No cash dividends were declared or paid during 2011 by Revlon, Inc. on its Common Stock. The terms of the 2011 Credit Agreements, the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement currently restrict Products Corporation’s ability to pay dividends or make distributions to Revlon, Inc., except in limited circumstances.

The table below shows the high and low quarterly closing stock prices of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock on the NYSE consolidated tape for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.

(a) 

Results for 2011 include: (1) an increase in net income driven by a non-cash benefit of $16.9 million related to the reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets for certain jurisdictions outside the U.S. at December 31, 2011 as a result of the Company’s improved earnings trends and cumulative taxable income in those jurisdictions, which is reflected in the provision for income taxes; and (2) an $11.2 million loss on the early extinguishment of debt in connection with the 2011 Refinancing of Products Corporation’s 2010 Term Loan Facility and 2010 Revolving Credit Facility.

 

(b) 

Results for 2010 include: (1) an increase in net income driven by a non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to the reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net U.S. deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010 as a result of the Company achieving three cumulative years, as well as its third consecutive year, of positive U.S. GAAP pre-tax income and taxable income in the U.S., and based upon the Company’s then current expectations as of December 31, 2010 for the realization of such deferred tax benefits in the U.S., which is reflected in the provision for income taxes; (2) a $9.7 million loss on the early extinguishment of debt in connection with the 2010 Refinancing; and (3) a $2.8 million one-time foreign currency loss related to the required re-measurement of the balance sheet of the Company’s subsidiary in Venezuela to reflect the impact of the devaluation of Venezuela’s local currency relative to the U.S. dollar, as Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy effective January 1, 2010.

 

(c) 

Results for 2009 include: (1) a $20.8 million charge related to the worldwide organizational restructuring announced in May 2009 (the “May 2009 Program”), which involved consolidating certain functions; reducing layers of management, where appropriate, to increase accountability and effectiveness; streamlining support functions to reflect the new organizational structure; and further consolidating the Company’s office facilities in New Jersey; and (2) a $5.8 million net loss on early extingishment of debt in 2009 primarily due to a $13.5 million loss resulting from applicable redemption and tender premiums and the net write-off of unamortized debt discounts and deferred financing fees in connection with the refinancing of the 9 1/2% Senior Notes in November 2009, partially offset by a $7.7 million gain on repurchases of an aggregate principal amount of $49.5 million of the 9 1/2% Senior Notes prior to their complete refinancing in November 2009 at an aggregate purchase price of $41.0 million, which is net of the write-off of the ratable portion of unamortized debt discounts and deferred financing fees resulting from such repurchases.

 

(d) 

Results for 2008 include a $5.9 million gain from the sale of a non-core trademark during the first quarter of 2008, and a net $4.3 million gain related to the sale of the Mexico facility (which is comprised of a $7.0 million gain on the sale, partially offset by related restructuring charges of $1.1 million, $1.2 million of SG&A and cost of sales and $0.4 million of taxes). In addition, results for 2008 also include various other restructuring charges of approximately $3.8 million. The results of discontinued operations for 2008 included a one-time gain of $45.2 million from the disposition of the non-core Bozzano business and certain other non-core brands, including Juvena and Aquamarine, which were sold in the Brazilian market.

 

(e) 

Results for 2007 include restructuring charges of approximately $4.4 million and $2.9 million in connection with restructurings announced in 2006 (the “2006 Programs”) and in 2007 (the “2007 Programs”), respectively. The $4.4 million of restructuring charges associated with the 2006 Programs were primarily for employee severance and other employee-related termination costs principally relating to a broad organizational streamlining. The $2.9 million of restructuring charges associated with the 2007 Programs were primarily for employee severance and other employee-related termination costs relating principally to the closure of the Company’s facility in Irvington, New Jersey and other employee-related termination costs relating to personnel reductions in the Company’s information management function and its sales force in Canada.

Overview of Net Sales and Earnings Results

Consolidated net sales in 2011 were $1,381.4 million, an increase of $60.0 million, or 4.5%, compared to $1,321.4 million in 2010. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations of $17.0 million, consolidated net sales increased by $43.0 million, or 3.3% in 2011 compared to 2010, driven by higher net sales in the Company’s U.S., Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Latin America regions, partially offset by lower net sales in the Company’s Canada region.

Consolidated net income in 2011 was $53.4 million, compared to $327.3 million in 2010. The decrease in consolidated net income in 2011, compared to 2010, was primarily due to:

 

   

a $247.2 million benefit for income taxes in 2010 due to a non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net U.S. deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010, compared with a $36.8 million provision for income taxes in 2011, which included a $16.9 million non-cash benefit related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance at December 31, 2011 (see Note 12, “Income Taxes,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements);

 

   

$18.9 million of higher SG&A expenses in 2011, primarily driven by $17.8 million of higher general and administrative expenses;

with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

$22.7 million of higher gross profit due to a $60.0 million improvement in consolidated net sales, partially offset by a $37.3 million increase in cost of sales.

Fire at Revlon Venezuela Facility

On June 5, 2011, the Company’s facility in Venezuela was destroyed by fire. For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company’s subsidiary in Venezuela (“Revlon Venezuela”) had net sales of

 

31


approximately 2% and 3%, respectively, of the Company’s consolidated net sales. At December 31, 2011 and 2010, total assets of Revlon Venezuela were approximately 2% and 3%, respectively, of the Company’s total assets. Historically, approximately 50% of Revlon Venezuela’s net sales were comprised of products imported from the Company’s Oxford, North Carolina facility and approximately 50% were comprised of locally manufactured products. Revlon Venezuela did not have any net sales from the date of the fire until August 12, 2011. The Company’s net sales in Venezuela since August 12, 2011 have been solely comprised of products imported from the Company’s Oxford, North Carolina facility and the Company estimates the lost net sales to be approximately $15 million for 2011.

The Company maintains comprehensive property insurance, as well as business interruption insurance. Business interruption insurance is intended to reimburse for lost profits and other costs incurred, which are attributable to the loss, during the loss period, subject to the terms and conditions of the applicable policies.

In June 2011, the Company recorded a $4.9 million impairment loss related to Revlon Venezuela’s net book value of inventory, property, plant and equipment destroyed by the fire and in the period from June 2011 through December 31, 2011, the Company incurred business interruption losses of $9.7 million related to the fire. The business interruption losses incurred in 2011 include estimated profits lost as a result of the interruption of Revlon Venezuela’s business and costs incurred directly related to the fire. The business interruption losses incurred in 2011 are not indicative of future business interruption losses for insurance purposes or future expected profits for Revlon Venezuela.

During 2011, the Company received $19.7 million in interim advances from its insurance carrier in connection with the fire. During 2011, the Company recognized $14.6 million of income from insurance recoveries, which entirely offset the impairment loss and business interruption losses noted above. The income from insurance recoveries is included within selling, general and administrative expenses in the Company’s Statements of Income for the year ended December 31, 2011. The deferred balance of $5.1 million was recorded as deferred income, which is included in accrued expenses and other in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2011.

An assessment of the extent of damage and the impact on Revlon Venezuela’s business is ongoing, and therefore the final amount and timing of the ultimate insurance recovery is currently unknown.

Refinancings of the 2010 Term Loan and 2010 Revolving Credit Facilities: During the second quarter of 2011, Products Corporation consummated refinancings of the 2010 Term Loan Facility and the 2010 Revolving Credit Facility (together referred to as the “2011 Refinancings”), reducing interest rates and extending maturities, consisting of the following transactions:

In May 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Term Loan Facility (the “2011 Term Loan Facility Refinancing”), which included replacing Products Corporation’s 2010 bank term loan facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2015 and had $794.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding at December 31, 2010 (the “2010 Term Loan Facility”), with a 6.5-year, $800.0 million term loan facility due November 19, 2017 (the “2011 Term Loan Facility”) under a third amended and restated term loan agreement dated May 19, 2011 (the “2011 Term Loan Agreement”). Products Corporation used $796 million of proceeds from the 2011 Term Loan Facility, which was drawn in full on the May 19, 2011 closing date and issued to lenders at 99.5% of par, to repay in full the $792.0 million of then outstanding indebtedness under its 2010 Term Loan Facility and to pay approximately $2 million of accrued interest. The Company incurred $3.6 million of fees in connection with consummating the 2011 Term Loan Facility Refinancing, of which $1.9 million was capitalized.

In June 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Revolving Credit Facility (the “2011 Revolving Credit Facility Refinancing”), which included refinancing Products Corporation’s 2010 revolving credit facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2014 and had nil outstanding borrowings at December 31, 2010 (the “2010 Revolving Credit Facility”), with a 5-year, $140.0 million asset-based, multi-currency revolving credit facility due June 16, 2016 (the “2011 Revolving Credit Facility”) under a third

 

32


amended and restated revolving credit agreement dated June 16, 2011 (the “2011 Revolving Credit Agreement” and together with the 2011 Term Loan Agreement, the “2011 Credit Agreements”). Products Corporation incurred $0.7 million of fees in connection with consummating the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility Refinancing, all of which were capitalized.

For further detail regarding the 2011 Refinancings, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

Net sales:

Consolidated net sales in 2011 were $1,381.4 million, an increase of $60.0 million, or 4.5%, compared to $1,321.4 million in 2010. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations of $17.0 million, consolidated net sales increased by $43.0 million, or 3.3% in 2011, primarily driven by the inclusion of the net sales of Sinful Colors beginning in March 2011, as well as higher net sales of Revlon and Almay color cosmetics and Revlon ColorSilk hair color. These increases were partially offset by lower net sales of Revlon beauty tools and lower net sales of other beauty care products in Venezuela as a result of the June 2011 fire at Revlon Venezuela’s facility.

United States

In the U.S., net sales in 2011 increased 3.9% to $757.4 million, compared to $729.1 million in 2010, primarily driven by the inclusion of the net sales of Sinful Colors beginning in March 2011, as well as higher net sales of Almay color cosmetics and Revlon ColorSilk hair color, partially offset by lower net sales of Revlon beauty tools and Revlon color cosmetics. Excluding the results of the recently acquired Sinful Colors, net sales in the U.S. increased in 2011.

Asia Pacific

In Asia Pacific, net sales in 2011 increased 11.2% to $233.4 million, compared to $209.9 million in 2010. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $8.4 million, or 4.0%, in 2011, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics. From a country perspective, net sales increased in China and certain distributor markets (which together contributed 6.2 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010), partially offset by a decrease in net sales in Japan and Australia (which together offset by 2.1 percentage points the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010).

Europe, Middle East and Africa

In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, net sales in 2011 increased 4.1% to $208.7 million, compared to $200.4 million in 2010. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $4.0 million, or 2.0%, in 2011, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics. From a country

 

33


perspective, net sales increased in South Africa (which contributed 2.5 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010), partially offset by a decrease in net sales in Italy (which offset by 0.8 percentage points the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010).

Latin America

In Latin America, net sales in 2011 decreased 0.6% to $107.2 million, compared to $107.9 million in 2010. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $4.6 million, or 4.3%, in 2011, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics, partially offset by lower net sales of other beauty care products. From a country perspective, net sales increased in Argentina and Latin America Export (which together contributed 6.6 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010), partially offset by a decrease in net sales in Venezuela (which offset by 3.0 percentage points the increase in the region’s net sales in 2011, as compared to 2010). Venezuela’s decline in net sales was due to the loss of a significant portion of sales from June through December 2011 as a result of the June 2011 fire which destroyed Revlon Venezuela’s facility. Revlon Venezuela resumed sales of imported goods on August 12, 2011; however, the Company had not recorded any sales of locally manufactured goods in Venezuela since the fire in June 2011.

Canada

In Canada, net sales in 2011 increased 0.8% to $74.7 million, compared to $74.1 million in 2010. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales decreased $2.3 million, or 3.1%, in 2011, primarily driven by lower net sales of Almay color cosmetics.

The 1.2 percentage point decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales for 2011, compared to 2010, was primarily due to:

 

   

the impact of product mix, which reduced gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 1.3 percentage points; and

 

   

higher allowances, which reduced gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 0.9 percentage points;

with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

favorable foreign currency fluctuations, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 0.6 percentage points;

 

   

lower pension expenses within cost of goods, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 0.2 percentage points.

   $ 685.5       $ 666.6       $ (18.9

The $18.9 million increase in SG&A expenses for 2011, as compared to 2010, was driven primarily by:

 

   

$17.8 million of higher general and administrative expenses primarily due to (i) the inclusion of operating expenses of Sinful Colors from the date of acquisition in March 2011, (ii) higher compensation expenses, (iii) higher professional fees and (iv) higher depreciation costs; and

 

   

$8.7 million of unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations;

 

34


with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

$9.7 million, net, from insurance recoveries, which is comprised of $14.6 million of income from insurance recoveries related to the fire that destroyed Revlon Venezuela’s facility, partially offset by the $4.9 million impairment loss related to Revlon Venezuela’s net book value of inventory, property, plant and equipment destroyed by the fire. The $9.7 million, net, from insurance recoveries entirely offset the business interruption losses incurred from June 5, 2011 through December 31, 2011. (See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Fire at Revlon Venezuela’s Facility” for further discussion).

   $ 84.9       $ 90.5       $ 5.6   

Interest expense - preferred stock dividend

The $5.6 million decrease in interest expense (excluding interest expense related to the regular dividends on the Preferred Stock) for 2011, as compared to 2010, was primarily due to lower weighted average borrowing rates as a result of the 2011 Refinancings. (See “Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources – 2011 Refinancings” and Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements).

In accordance with the terms of the certificate of designation of the Preferred Stock, during both 2011 and 2010, Revlon, Inc. recognized $6.4 million of interest expense related to the regular quarterly dividends on the Preferred Stock.

Loss on early extinguishment of debt, net

   $ 11.2       $ 9.7       $ (1.5

As a result of the 2011 Refinancings, the Company recognized a loss on the early extinguishment of debt of $11.2 million during 2011, due to $1.7 million of fees which were expensed as incurred in connection with the 2011 Refinancings, as well as the write-off of $9.5 million of unamortized debt discount and deferred financing fees as a result of such refinancings.

During March 2010, Products Corporation consummated the refinancing of the 2006 Term Loan Facility and the 2006 Revolving Credit Facility (together referred to as the “2010 Refinancing”). As a result of the 2010 Refinancing, the Company recognized a loss on the early extinguishment of debt of $9.7 million during 2010, primarily due to $5.9 million of fees and expenses which were expensed as incurred in connection with the 2010 Refinancing, as well as the write-off of $3.8 million of unamortized deferred financing fees as a result of such refinancing.

Foreign currency losses

   $ 4.4       $ 6.3       $ 1.9   

The $1.9 million decrease in foreign currency losses during 2011, as compared to 2010, was primarily driven by:

 

   

a $1.1 million lower foreign currency loss in 2011 compared to 2010 related to the re-measurements of Revlon Venezuela’s balance sheet (see “Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources – Impact of Foreign Currency Translation – Venezuela”); and

 

   

$2.0 million of lower foreign currency losses related to the Company’s foreign currency forward exchange contracts (“FX Contracts”) during 2011 compared to 2010;

 

35


with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

the unfavorable impact of the revaluation of certain U.S. dollar-denominated intercompany payables from the Company’s foreign subsidiaries compared to 2010.

Provision for (benefit from) income taxes:

Provision for (benefit from) income taxes

   $ 36.8       $ (247.2   $ (284.0

The provision for income taxes in 2011 included a non-cash benefit of $16.9 million related to the reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets for certain jurisdictions outside the U.S. at December 31, 2011 as a result of the Company’s improved earnings trends and cumulative taxable income in those jurisdictions. The benefit for income taxes in 2010 included a non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net U.S. deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010. Excluding these non-cash benefits, the provision for income taxes in 2011 was higher than 2010 primarily due to higher deferred tax expense for the U.S. in 2011 due to the reduction of the valuation allowance in the U.S. on December 31, 2010 and higher pre-tax income in the U.S. in 2011. In addition, the provision for income taxes in 2010 benefited from various discrete items, including the favorable resolution of tax matters in the U.S. and certain foreign jurisdictions, that did not recur in 2011.

The effective tax rate for 2011 is higher than the federal statutory rate of 35% due principally to: (i) foreign dividends and earnings taxable in the U.S.; and (ii) foreign and U.S. tax effects attributable to operations outside the U.S., including pre-tax losses in a number of jurisdictions outside the U.S. for which there is no tax benefit recognized in the period, partially offset by the effect of the reduction of the deferred tax valuation allowance described above.

As previously disclosed, in assessing the recoverability of its deferred tax assets, management regularly considers whether some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized based on the recognition threshold and measurement of a tax position. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is generally dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment.

Based upon the level of historical taxable losses for certain jurisdictions outside the U.S., the Company had maintained a deferred tax valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets. As of December 31, 2011, the Company experienced improved earnings trends and had cumulative taxable income in such jurisdictions. As a result of such earnings trends and the Company’s tax position, and based upon the Company’s current projections for future taxable income over the periods in which the deferred tax assets are recoverable, management believes that it is more likely than not that the Company will realize the benefits of the net deferred tax assets existing at December 31, 2011 in those jurisdictions. Therefore, at December 31, 2011, the Company realized a non-cash benefit of $16.9 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets for certain jurisdictions outside the U.S. The Company has reflected this benefit in the tax provision and this non-cash benefit increased the Company’s net income at December 31, 2011.

Based upon the level of historical taxable losses for the U.S., the Company had maintained a deferred tax valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets in the U.S. As of December 31, 2010, the Company had experienced improved earnings trends and had cumulative taxable income. As a result of such earnings trends and the Company’s tax position, and based upon the Company’s projections for future taxable income over the periods in which the deferred tax assets were recoverable, management believed that it was more likely than not that the Company would realize the benefits of the net deferred tax assets existing at December 31, 2010. Therefore, at December 31, 2010, the Company realized a non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net U.S. deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010. The Company reflected this benefit in the tax provision and this non-cash benefit increased net income at December 31, 2010.

 

36


As a result of the reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance in the U.S. during 2010, the Company’s tax provision has reflected a higher effective tax rate beginning with the first quarter of 2011. However, the increase in the effective tax rate did not affect the Company’s cash taxes paid in 2011 and will not affect the Company’s cash taxes paid in 2012 and thereafter until the Company has fully used its tax loss carryforwards and other tax attributes in the U.S.

See Note 12, “Income Taxes,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of the above.

United States

In the U.S., net sales in 2010 were $729.1 million, a decrease of $18.8 million, or 2.5%, compared to $747.9 million in 2009, primarily driven by lower net sales of Almay color cosmetics, Revlon ColorSilk hair color and Mitchum anti-perspirant deodorant, partially offset by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics. Net sales of color cosmetics benefitted from lower promotional allowances as the Company continued to optimize its brand support mix, and also benefitted from lower returns.

Asia Pacific

In Asia Pacific, net sales in 2010 increased 11.0% to $209.9 million, compared to $189.1 million in 2009. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $6.0 million, or 3.2%, in 2010, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics, certain beauty care products and Revlon ColorSilk hair color. From a country perspective, higher net sales in the Company’s travel retail businesses, certain distributor markets, China and Hong Kong (which together contributed approximately 4.6 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2010, as compared to 2009) were partially offset by lower net sales in Australia and Japan (which offset by approximately 2.0 percentage points the increase in the region’s net sales in 2010, as compared to 2009).

Europe, Middle East and Africa

In Europe, the Middle East and Africa, net sales in 2010 increased 9.0% to $200.4 million, compared to $183.8 million in 2009. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $8.6 million, or 4.7%, in 2010, primarily driven by higher net sales of fragrances. From a country perspective, net sales increased in South Africa, Italy, the U.K. and France (which together contributed approximately 5.0 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2010, as compared to 2009).

Latin America

In Latin America, net sales in 2010 decreased 0.9% to $107.9 million, compared to $108.9 million in 2009. Excluding the unfavorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations (which includes the unfavorable impact of the January 2010 devaluation of Venezuela’s local currency relative to the U.S. dollar), net sales increased $32.1 million, or 29.5%, in 2010, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon ColorSilk hair color, Revlon color cosmetics and other beauty care products. From a country perspective, higher net sales in Venezuela and certain distributor markets contributed approximately 23.8 percentage points to the increase in the region’s net sales in 2010, as compared to 2009. Higher selling prices in Venezuela, reflecting market conditions and inflation, accounted for approximately half of the $32.1 million increase in net sales in the region.

Canada

In Canada, net sales in 2010 were $74.1 million, an increase of $7.9 million, or 11.9%, compared to $66.2 million in 2009. Excluding the favorable impact of foreign currency fluctuations, net sales increased $1.4 million, or 2.1%, in 2010, primarily driven by higher net sales of Revlon color cosmetics, partially offset by lower net sales of Revlon beauty tools.

The 2.1 percentage point increase in gross profit as a percentage of net sales for 2010, compared to 2009, was primarily due to:

 

   

lower costs related to inventory obsolescence and sales returns, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 1.1 percentage points;

 

   

lower material costs as a result of purchasing initiatives and savings as a result of the May 2009 Program, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 1.0 percentage points;

 

   

lower allowances, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 0.5 percentage points; and

 

   

favorable foreign currency fluctuations which resulted in lower cost of goods in most international territories on goods purchased from the Company’s facility in Oxford, North Carolina, which increased gross profit as a percentage of net sales by 0.4 percentage points;

with the foregoing partially offset by:

The $37.5 million increase in SG&A expenses for 2010, as compared to 2009, was driven primarily by:

 

   

$33.8 million of higher advertising expenses to support the Company’s brands as the Company continued to optimize its brand support mix. The Company increased media pressure while benefitting from lower advertising rates in 2010, as compared to 2009; and

 

   

$19.4 million of higher general and administrative expenses primarily due to higher compensation expenses including an increase in the accrual for incentive compensation, partially offset by savings as a result of the May 2009 Program;

 

38


with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

$9.1 million of lower pension expenses, primarily due to the May 2009 Plan Amendments which ceased future benefit accruals under the Revlon Employees’ Retirement Plan and the Revlon Pension Equalization Plan after December 31, 2009 and which resulted in a change in the amortization period of actuarial gains (losses) from the remaining service period to the remaining life expectancy of plan participants; and

In May 2009, the Company announced a worldwide restructuring (the “May 2009 Program”), which involved consolidating certain functions; reducing layers of management, where appropriate, to increase accountability and effectiveness; streamlining support functions to reflect the new organizational structure; and further consolidating the Company’s office facilities in New Jersey.

During 2009, the Company recorded charges of $21.3 million in restructuring costs and other, net, which were comprised of:

 

   

a $20.8 million charge related to the May 2009 Program;

 

   

$1.3 million of charges related to employee severance and other employee-related termination costs related to restructuring actions in the U.K., Mexico and Argentina announced in the first quarter of 2009; and

 

   

a $0.8 million charge related to restructuring programs initiated in 2008 (the “2008 Programs”);

with the foregoing partially offset by:

 

   

income of $1.6 million related to the sale of a facility in Argentina in the first quarter of 2009.

During 2010, a $0.3 million adjustment was recorded to restructuring costs and other, net to reflect lower than originally anticipated expenses associated with the May 2009 Program.

The $20.5 million of net charges related to the May 2009 Program have been or will be paid out as follows: $11.0 million paid in 2009, $6.9 million paid in 2010, $1.6 million paid in 2011 and the balance of $1.0 million to be paid thereafter. The May 2009 Program generated the previously-disclosed expected savings of approximately $15 million in 2009 and annualized savings of approximately $30 million in 2010.

The $1.0 million decrease in interest expense (excluding interest expense related to the regular quarterly dividends on the Preferred Stock) for 2010, as compared to 2009, was primarily due to lower debt levels, largely offset by higher weighted average borrowing rates. (See Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements).

In accordance with the terms of the certificate of designation of the Preferred Stock, during 2010, Revlon, Inc. recognized $6.4 million of interest expense related to regular quarterly dividends on the Preferred Stock, as compared to $1.5 million during 2009, which reflected the interest expense related to the regular quarterly dividend on the Preferred Stock from October 8, 2009 (the date that Preferred Stock was issued) through December 31, 2009.

Loss on early extinguishment of debt, net

As a result of the 2010 Refinancing, the Company recognized a loss on the extinguishment of debt of $9.7 million during the first half of 2010, primarily due to $5.9 million of fees and expenses which were expensed as incurred in connection with the 2010 Refinancing, as well as the write-off of $3.8 million of unamortized deferred financing fees in connection with such refinancing.

In 2009, the Company recognized a loss on the early extinguishment of debt of $13.5 million resulting from the applicable redemption and tender premiums and the net write-off of unamortized debt discounts and deferred financing fees in connection with the refinancing of the 9 1/2% Senior Notes, which was partially offset by a $7.7 million gain on the repurchases of an aggregate principal amount of $49.5 million of the 9 1/2% Senior Notes prior to their complete refinancing in November 2009 at an aggregate purchase price of $41.0 million, which is net of the write-off of the ratable portion of unamortized debt discounts and deferred financing fees resulting from such repurchases.

Foreign currency losses

    $ 6.3        $ 8.9        $ 2.6   

The $6.3 million of foreign currency losses during 2010 included a $2.8 million one-time foreign currency loss related to the required re-measurement of the balance sheet of the Company’s subsidiary in Venezuela (“Revlon Venezuela”) during the first quarter of 2010 to reflect the impact of the devaluation of Venezuela’s local currency relative to the U.S. dollar, as Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy effective January 1, 2010 (see “Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources – Impact of Foreign Currency Translation – Venezuela”). In addition, foreign currency losses during 2010 were driven by $3.1 million of foreign currency losses related to the Company’s then-outstanding foreign currency forward exchange contracts (“FX Contracts”).

The $8.9 million of foreign currency losses during 2009 were primarily driven by $5.9 million of foreign currency losses related to the Company’s then-outstanding FX Contracts and an exchange loss of $2.8 million related to Revlon Venezuela. Due to currency restrictions in Venezuela, Revlon Venezuela exchanged local currency for U.S. dollars through a parallel market exchange transaction in order to pay for certain U.S. dollar-denominated liabilities, which resulted in the $2.8 million exchange loss in 2009.

The $247.2 million benefit from income taxes in 2010, as compared to the $8.3 million provision for income taxes in 2009, was primarily attributable to the non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net U.S. deferred tax assets at December 31, 2010, as discussed above in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Provision for (benefit from) income taxes.”

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources

At December 31, 2011, the Company had a liquidity position of $228.0 million, consisting of cash and cash equivalents (net of any outstanding checks) of $100.7 million, as well as $127.3 million in available borrowings under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, based upon the borrowing base less $11.1 million of undrawn outstanding letters of credit and nil then drawn under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility at such date.

the repayment of $18.7 million in principal amount of Products Corporation’s 2006 Term Loan Facility (prior to its complete refinancing in March 2010);

with the foregoing partially offset by:

Net cash used in financing activities for 2009 also included payment of financing costs of $29.6 million, which was comprised of (i) the payment of $23.4 million of the $24.9 million of fees incurred in connection with the refinancing of the 9 1/2% Senior Notes and (ii) the payment of $6.2 million of the $6.7 million of fees incurred in connection with the consummation of the 2009 Exchange Offer (as hereinafter defined).

2011 Refinancings

In the second quarter of 2011, Products Corporation consummated the 2011 Refinancings, which included refinancing its 2010 Term Loan Facility with the 2011 Term Loan Facility and Products Corporation’s 2010 Revolving Credit Facility with the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, reducing interest rates and extending maturities.

In May 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Term Loan Facility, which included replacing Products Corporation’s 2010 bank term loan facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2015 and had $794.0 million aggregate principal amount outstanding at December 31, 2010, with a 6.5-year, $800.0 million term loan facility due November 19, 2017. Products Corporation used $796 million of proceeds from the 2011 Term Loan Facility, which was drawn in full on the May 19, 2011 closing date and issued to lenders at 99.5% of par, to refinance in full the $792.0 million of then outstanding indebtedness under its 2010 Term Loan Facility and to pay approximately $2 million of accrued interest. The Company incurred $3.6 million of fees in connection with consummating the 2011 Term Loan Facility Refinancing, of which $1.9 million was capitalized.

In June 2011, Products Corporation consummated a refinancing of the 2010 Revolving Credit Facility, which included refinancing Products Corporation’s 2010 revolving credit facility, which was scheduled to mature on March 11, 2014 and had nil outstanding borrowings at December 31, 2010, with a 5-year, $140.0 million asset-based, multi-currency revolving credit facility due June 16, 2016. Products Corporation incurred $0.7 million of fees in connection with consummating the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility Refinancing, all of which were capitalized.

The following is a summary description of the 2011 Term Loan Facility and 2011 Revolving Credit Facility. Investors should refer to the principal refinancing agreements (copies of which are included as exhibits to the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2011, filed with the SEC on July 28, 2011) for complete terms and conditions. Unless otherwise indicated, capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in the 2011 Term Loan Agreement and/or the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement, as applicable.

2011 Term Loan Facility

Under the 2011 Term Loan Facility, Eurodollar Loans bear interest at the Eurodollar Rate plus 3.50% per annum (with the Eurodollar Rate not to be less than 1.25%) and Alternate Base Rate loans bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus 2.50% (with the Alternate Base Rate not to be less than 2.25%).

Prior to the November 2017 termination date of the 2011 Term Loan Facility, on September 30, December 31, March 31 and June 30 of each year (commencing September 30, 2011), Products Corporation is required to repay $2 million of the principal amount of the term loans outstanding under the 2011 Term Loan Facility on each respective date. For other prepayment terms (including, without limitation, the requirement to pre-pay the 2011 Term Loan Facility with 50% of Products Corporation’s “excess cash flow”, commencing with excess cash flow for the 2012 fiscal year payable in the first 100 days of 2013, which prepayments are applied to reduce Products Corporation’s future regularly scheduled term loan amortization payments in the direct order of maturities), see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

The 2011 Term Loan Facility contains a financial covenant limiting Products Corporation’s first lien senior secured leverage ratio (the ratio of Products Corporation’s Senior Secured Debt that has a lien on the collateral which secures the 2011 Term Loan Facility that is not junior or subordinated to the liens securing the 2011 Term Loan Facility (excluding debt outstanding under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility) to EBITDA), to no more than 4.0 to 1.0 for each period of four consecutive fiscal quarters ending during the period from June 30, 2011 to such facility’s November 2017 maturity date.

Under certain circumstances, Products Corporation has the right to request the 2011 Term Loan Facility to be increased by up to $300 million, provided that the lenders are not committed to provide any such increase.

The 2011 Term Loan Facility matures on November 19, 2017; provided, however, it will mature on August 15, 2015 if Products Corporation’s 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes have not been refinanced, redeemed, repurchased, defeased or repaid in full on or before such date.

2011 Revolving Credit Facility

Availability under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility varies based on a borrowing base that is determined by the value of eligible accounts receivable and eligible inventory in the U.S. and the U.K. and eligible real property and equipment in the U.S. from time to time.

If the value of the eligible assets is not sufficient to support the $140.0 million borrowing base under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, Products Corporation will not have full access to the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility. Products Corporation’s ability to borrow under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility is also conditioned upon the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent and Products Corporation’s compliance with other covenants in the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement.

Under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, borrowings (other than loans in foreign currencies) bear interest, if made as Eurodollar Loans, at the Eurodollar Rate, plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid below and, if made as Alternate Base Rate loans, at the Alternate Base Rate, plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid below:

Base Rate plus the applicable margin set forth in the grid above. For other fees payable to the lenders under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility (including, without limitation, a commitment fee of 0.375% of the average daily unused portion of the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility), see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

For prepayment terms under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

Under certain circumstances, Products Corporation has the right to request that the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility be increased by up to $60.0 million, provided that the lenders are not committed to provide any such increase.

Under certain circumstances if and when the difference between (i) the borrowing base under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and (ii) the amounts outstanding under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility is less than $20.0 million for a period of two consecutive days or more, and until such difference is equal to or greater than $20.0 million for a period of 30 consecutive business days, the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility requires Products Corporation to maintain a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio (the ratio of EBITDA minus Capital Expenditures to Cash Interest Expense for such period) of a minimum of 1.0 to 1.0.

The 2011 Revolving Credit Facility matures on June 16, 2016; provided, however, it will mature on August 15, 2015 if Products Corporation’s 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes have not been refinanced, redeemed, repurchased, defeased or repaid in full on or before such date.

Covenants and Defaults Applicable to the 2011 Credit Facilities

The 2011 Credit Facilities contain various restrictive covenants prohibiting Products Corporation and its subsidiaries from:

(i) incurring additional indebtedness or guarantees, with certain exceptions;

(ii) making dividend and other payments or loans to Revlon, Inc. or other affiliates, with certain exceptions, including among others:

(a) exceptions permitting Products Corporation to pay dividends or make other payments to Revlon, Inc. to enable it to, among other things, pay expenses incidental to being a public holding company, including, among other things, professional fees such as legal, accounting and insurance fees, regulatory fees, such as SEC filing fees and NYSE listing fees, and other expenses related to being a public holding company;

(b) subject to certain circumstances, to finance the purchase by Revlon, Inc. of its Class A Common Stock in connection with the delivery of such Class A Common Stock to grantees under the Third Amended and Restated Revlon, Inc. Stock Plan and/or the payment of withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock awards under such plan;

(c) subject to certain limitations, to pay dividends or make other payments to finance the purchase, redemption or other retirement for value by Revlon, Inc. of stock or other equity interests or equivalents in Revlon, Inc. held by any current or former director, employee or consultant in his or her capacity as such; and

(d) subject to certain limitations, to make other restricted payments to affiliates of Products Corporation in an amount up to $10 million per year (plus $10 million for each calendar year commencing with 2011), other restricted payments in an aggregate amount not to exceed $35 million and other restricted payments based upon certain financial tests.

(iii) creating liens or other encumbrances on Products Corporation’s or its subsidiaries’ assets or revenues, granting negative pledges or selling or transferring any of Products Corporation’s or its subsidiaries’ assets, all subject to certain limited exceptions;

(iv) with certain exceptions, engaging in merger or acquisition transactions;

 

44


(v) prepaying indebtedness and modifying the terms of certain indebtedness and specified material contractual obligations, subject to certain exceptions;

(vi) making investments, subject to certain exceptions; and

(vii) entering into transactions with affiliates of Products Corporation involving aggregate payments or consideration in excess of $10 million other than upon terms that are not materially less favorable when taken as a whole to Products Corporation or its subsidiaries as terms that would be obtainable at the time for a comparable transaction or series of similar transactions in arm’s length dealings with an unrelated third person and where such payments or consideration exceed $20 million, unless such transaction has been approved by all of the independent directors of Products Corporation, subject to certain exceptions.

The events of default under the 2011 Credit Facilities include customary events of default for such types of agreements. For a description of the events of defaults, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K. If Products Corporation is in default under the senior secured leverage ratio under the 2011 Term Loan Facility or the consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio under the 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement, Products Corporation may cure such default by issuing certain equity securities to, or receiving capital contributions from, Revlon, Inc. and applying such cash which is deemed to increase EBITDA for the purpose of calculating the applicable ratio. Products Corporation may exercise this cure right two times in any four-quarter period.

Products Corporation was in compliance with all applicable covenants under the 2011 Term Loan Agreement and 2011 Revolving Credit Agreement upon closing the respective 2011 Refinancings and as of December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2011, the aggregate principal amount outstanding under the 2011 Term Loan Facility was $796 million and availability under the $140.0 million 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, based upon the calculated borrowing base less $11.1 million of outstanding undrawn letters of credit and nil then drawn on the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility, was $127.3 million.

For further detail regarding the 2011 Refinancings, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes due 2015

In November 2009, Products Corporation issued and sold $330.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes due November 15, 2015 (the “9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes”) in a private placement which was priced at 98.9% of par, receiving net proceeds (net of original issue discount and underwriters fees) of $319.8 million. Including the amortization of the original issue discount, the effective interest rate on the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes is 10%. Pursuant to a registration rights agreement, in July 2010, Products Corporation completed an offer to exchange the original 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes for up to $330 million in aggregate principal amount of its 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 that have been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in which all of the old notes were exchanged for new notes which have substantially identical terms as the old notes, except that the new notes are registered with the SEC under the Securities Act and the transfer restrictions and registration rights applicable to the old notes do not apply to the new notes.

The 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes bear interest at an annual rate of 9 3/4%, which is payable on May 15 and November 15 of each year, requiring bi-annual interest payments of approximately $16.1 million on each interest payment date, based on the $330.0 million aggregate principal face amount of the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes outstanding as of December 31, 2011.

Upon a Change in Control (as defined in the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture), subject to certain conditions, each holder of the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes will have the right to require Products Corporation to repurchase all or a portion of such holder’s 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the date of repurchase.

The 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture contains covenants that, among other things, limit (i) the issuance of additional debt and redeemable stock by Products Corporation; (ii) the incurrence of liens; (iii) the

 

45


issuance of debt and preferred stock by Products Corporation’s subsidiaries; (iv) the payment of dividends on capital stock of Products Corporation and its subsidiaries and the redemption of capital stock of Products Corporation and certain subordinated obligations; (v) the sale of assets and subsidiary stock by Products Corporation; (vi) transactions with affiliates of Products Corporation; (vii) consolidations, mergers and transfers of all or substantially all of Products Corporation’s assets; and (viii) certain restrictions on transfers of assets by or distributions from subsidiaries of Products Corporation. All of these limitations and prohibitions, however, are subject to a number of qualifications and exceptions, which are specified in the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture. Products Corporation was in compliance with all applicable covenants under its 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture as of December 31, 2011.

For further discussion regarding the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes, due November 2015, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

Senior Subordinated Term Loan and Redeemable Preferred Stock

In October 2009, Revlon, Inc. consummated a voluntary exchange offer transaction (the “2009 Exchange Offer’), in which MacAndrews & Forbes contributed to Revlon, Inc. $48.6 million of the $107.0 million aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan (the “Contributed Loan”), representing $5.21 of outstanding principal amount for each of the 9,336,905 shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Class A Common Stock exchanged in the 2009 Exchange Offer, and Revlon, Inc. issued to MacAndrews & Forbes 9,336,905 shares of Class A Common Stock at a ratio of one share of Class A Common Stock for each $5.21 of outstanding principal amount of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan contributed to Revlon. Also upon consummation of the 2009 Exchange Offer, the terms of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement were amended to extend the maturity date of the Contributed Loan which remains owing from Products Corporation to Revlon, Inc. from August 2010 to October 8, 2013, to change the annual interest rate on the Contributed Loan from 11% to 12.75%, to extend the maturity date of the $58.4 million principal amount of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan which remains owing from Products Corporation to MacAndrews & Forbes (the “Non-Contributed Loan”) from August 2010 to October 8, 2014 and to change the annual interest rate on the Non-Contributed Loan from 11% to 12%.

Each share of Preferred Stock issued in the 2009 Exchange Offer has a liquidation preference of $5.21 per share, is entitled to receive a 12.75% annual dividend payable quarterly in cash and is mandatorily redeemable for $5.21 in cash on October 8, 2013. Each share of Preferred Stock entitles its holder to receive cash payments of approximately $7.87 over the four-year term of the Preferred Stock, through the quarterly payment of 12.75% annual cash dividends and a $5.21 per share liquidation preference at maturity (assuming Revlon, Inc. does not engage in one of certain specified change of control transactions), in each case to the extent that Revlon, Inc. has lawfully available funds to effect such payments. Each share of Preferred Stock has the same voting rights as a share of Class A Common Stock, except with respect to certain mergers.

Interest under the Senior Subordinated Term Loan is payable in arrears in cash on January 8, April 8, July 8 and October 8 of each year. Pursuant to the terms of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan, Products Corporation may, at its option, prepay such loan, in whole or in part (together with accrued and unpaid interest), at any time prior to its respective maturity dates without premium or penalty, provided that prior to such loan’s respective maturity dates all shares of Revlon, Inc.’s Preferred Stock have been or are being concurrently redeemed and all payments due thereon are paid in full or are concurrently being paid in full.

In connection with the 2009 Exchange Offer, the Preferred Stock was recorded by Revlon, Inc. as a long-term liability at its fair value of $47.9 million. The total amount to be paid by Revlon, Inc. at maturity is $48.6 million, which represents the $5.21 liquidation preference for each of the 9,336,905 shares of Preferred Stock issued in the 2009 Exchange Offer.

For further discussion regarding the Senior Subordinated Term Loan, see Note 9, “Long-Term Debt and Redeemable Preferred Stock,” to the Consolidated Financial Statements in this Form 10-K.

Impact of Foreign Currency Translation – Venezuela

For the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, Revlon Venezuela had net sales of approximately 2% and 3%, respectively, of the Company’s consolidated net sales. At December 31, 2011 and 2010, total assets of Revlon Venezuela were approximately 2% and 3%, respectively, of the Company’s total assets.

Highly-Inflationary Economy: Effective January 1, 2010, Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy under U.S. GAAP. As a result, beginning January 1, 2010, the U.S. dollar is the functional currency for Revlon Venezuela. Through December 31, 2009, prior to Venezuela being designated as highly inflationary, currency translation adjustments of Revlon Venezuela’s balance sheet were reflected in shareholders’ equity as part of Other Comprehensive Income; however, subsequent to January 1, 2010, such adjustments are reflected in earnings.

Currency Devaluation: On January 8, 2010, the Venezuelan government announced the devaluation of its local currency, Venezuelan Bolivars (“Bolivars”), relative to the U.S. dollar and the official exchange rate for non-essential goods changed from 2.15 to 4.30. Throughout 2010, the Company used Venezuela’s official rate to translate Revlon Venezuela’s financial statements. In 2010, the devaluation had the impact of reducing the Company’s reported net sales and operating income by $33.4 million and $8.4 million, respectively. Additionally, to reflect the impact of the currency devaluation, the Company recorded a one-time foreign currency loss of $2.8 million in January 2010 as a result of the required re-measurement of Revlon Venezuela’s balance sheet. As Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy effective January 1, 2010, this foreign currency loss was reflected in earnings in the first quarter of 2010.

In December 2010, the Venezuelan government announced a further devaluation of Bolivars relative to the U.S. dollar for essential goods from 2.60 to 4.30, effective December 31, 2010. Given that the Company has immaterial transactions for essential goods, this further devaluation has not had, nor does the Company expect it to have, a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial condition.

Currency Restrictions: Currency restrictions enacted by the Venezuelan government in 2003 have become more restrictive and have impacted Revlon Venezuela’s ability to obtain U.S. dollars in exchange for Bolivars at the official foreign exchange rates from the Venezuelan government and its foreign exchange commission, the Comisión de Administracion de Divisas (“CADIVI”). In May 2010, the Venezuelan government took control over the previously freely-traded foreign currency exchange market and in June 2010, replaced it with a new foreign currency exchange system, the Sistema de Transacciones en Moneda Extranjera (“SITME”). SITME provides a mechanism to exchange Bolivars into U.S. dollars. However, U.S. dollars accessed through SITME can only be used for product purchases and related services, such as freight, and are not available for other transactions, such as the payment of dividends. Also, SITME can only be accessed for amounts of up to $50,000 per day, subject to a monthly maximum of $350,000 per legal entity, and is generally only available to the extent the applicant has not exchanged and received U.S. dollars from CADIVI within the previous 90 days. In the second quarter of 2011, the Company began using a SITME rate of 5.5 Bolivars per U.S. dollar to translate Revlon Venezuela’s financial statements, as this was the rate at which the Company accessed U.S. dollars in the SITME market during the second quarter of 2011 (the “SITME Rate”). The Company had previously utilized Venezuela’s official exchange rate of 4.3 Bolivars per U.S. dollar to translate Revlon Venezuela’s financial statements from January 1, 2010 through March 31, 2011. Through December 31, 2011, the Company continued using the SITME Rate to translate Revlon Venezuela’s financial statements.

To reflect the impact of the change in exchange rates from Venezuela’s official exchange rate to the SITME Rate, the Company recorded a foreign currency loss of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. As Venezuela was designated as a highly inflationary economy effective January 1, 2010, the Company reflected this foreign currency loss in earnings for the year ended December 31, 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2011, the change in the exchange rates in Venezuela unfavorably impacted the Company’s consolidated net sales by $4.6 million. The impact on the Company’s consolidated operating income for the year ended December 31, 2011 was de minimis.

Sources and Uses

The Company’s principal sources of funds are expected to be operating revenues, cash on hand and funds available for borrowing under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and other permitted lines of credit. The 2011 Credit Agreements, the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture and the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement contain certain provisions that by their terms limit Products Corporation and its subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, incur additional debt.

The Company’s principal uses of funds are expected to be the payment of operating expenses, including expenses in connection with the continued execution of the Company’s business strategy, insurance premiums, purchases of permanent wall displays, capital expenditure requirements, debt service payments and costs, tax payments, pension and post-retirement benefit plan contributions, payments in connection with the Company’s restructuring programs, severance not otherwise included in the Company’s restructuring programs, debt repurchases and costs related to litigation. The Company’s cash contributions to its pension and post-retirement benefit plans in 2011 were $31.5 million. The Company expects cash contributions to its pension and post-retirement benefit plans to be approximately $35 million in the aggregate for 2012. The Company’s cash taxes paid in 2011 were $20.5 million. The Company expects to pay cash taxes of approximately $20 million in the aggregate for 2012. The Company’s purchases of permanent wall displays and capital expenditures in 2011 were $41.3 million and $13.9 million, respectively. The Company expects purchases of permanent wall displays and capital expenditures in the aggregate for 2012 to be approximately $40 million and $25 million, respectively. The Company has undertaken, and continues to assess, refine and implement, a number of programs to efficiently manage its cash and working capital, including, among other things, programs intended to optimize inventory levels over time; centralized procurement to secure discounts and efficiencies; prudent management of accounts receivable and accounts payable; and controls on general and administrative spending. In the ordinary course of business, the Company’s source or use of cash from operating activities may vary on a quarterly basis as a result of a number of factors, including the timing of working capital flows.

Continuing to execute the Company’s business strategy could include taking advantage of additional opportunities to reposition, repackage or reformulate one or more brands or product lines, launching additional new products, acquiring businesses or brands, further refining the Company’s approach to retail merchandising and/or taking further actions to optimize its manufacturing, sourcing and organizational size and structure. Any of these actions, the intended purpose of which would be to create value through profitable growth, could result in the Company making investments and/or recognizing charges related to executing against such opportunities.

The Company may also, from time to time, seek to retire or purchase its outstanding debt obligations in open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise and may seek to refinance some or all of its indebtedness based upon market conditions. Any retirement or purchase of debt may be funded with operating cash flows of the business or other sources and will depend upon prevailing market conditions, liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions and other factors, and the amounts involved may be material.

The Company expects that operating revenues, cash on hand and funds available for borrowing under the 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and other permitted lines of credit will be sufficient to enable the Company to cover its operating expenses for 2012, including cash requirements in connection with the payment of operating expenses, including expenses in connection with the execution of the Company’s business strategy, insurance premiums, purchases of permanent wall displays, capital expenditure requirements, debt service payments and costs, tax payments and pension and post-retirement plan contributions, payments in connection with the Company’s restructuring programs, severance not otherwise included in the Company’s restructuring programs, debt repurchases and costs related to litigation.

There can be no assurance that available funds will be sufficient to meet the Company’s cash requirements on a consolidated basis. If the Company’s anticipated level of revenues is not achieved because of, among other things, decreased consumer spending in response to weak economic conditions or weakness in the cosmetics category in the mass retail channel; adverse changes in currency exchange rates and/or currency controls; decreased sales of the Company’s products as a result of increased competitive activities by the Company’s competitors; changes in consumer purchasing habits, including with respect to shopping channels; retailer

inventory management, retailer space reconfigurations or reductions in retailer display space; changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies; or less than anticipated results from the Company’s existing or new products or from its advertising, promotional and/or marketing plans; or if the Company’s expenses, including, without limitation, for pension expense under its benefit plans, insurance premiums and costs related to litigation, advertising, promotional and marketing activities or for sales returns related to any reduction of retail space, product discontinuances or otherwise, exceed the anticipated level of expenses, the Company’s current sources of funds may be insufficient to meet the Company’s cash requirements.

Any such developments, if significant, could reduce the Company’s revenues and could adversely affect Products Corporation’s ability to comply with certain financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements and in such event, the Company could be required to take measures, including, among other things, reducing discretionary spending. (See Item 1A. “Risk Factors—The Company’s ability to service its debt and meet its cash requirements depends on many factors, including achieving anticipated levels of revenue and expenses. If such revenue or expense levels prove to be other than as anticipated, the Company may be unable to meet its cash requirements or Products Corporation may be unable to meet the requirements of the financial covenants under the 2011 Credit Agreements, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or results of operations” and certain other risk factors discussing certain risks associated with the Company’s business and indebtedness).

Revlon, Inc. expects that the payment of the quarterly dividends on its Preferred Stock will be funded by cash interest payments to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation on the Contributed Loan (the $48.6 million portion of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan that was contributed to Revlon, Inc. by MacAndrews & Forbes in connection with consummating the 2009 Exchange Offer), subject to Revlon, Inc. having sufficient surplus or net profits in accordance with Delaware law. Additionally, Revlon, Inc. expects to pay the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock on October 8, 2013 with the cash payment to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation in respect of the maturity of the principal amount outstanding under the Contributed Loan, subject to Revlon, Inc. having sufficient surplus in accordance with Delaware law. The payment of such interest and principal under the Contributed Loan to Revlon, Inc. by Products Corporation is permissible under the 2011 Credit Agreements, the Senior Subordinated Term Loan Agreement and the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes Indenture.

In accordance with the terms of the certificate of designation of the Preferred Stock, during 2011, Revlon, Inc. paid to holders of record of the Preferred Stock an aggregate of $6.2 million of regular dividends on the Preferred Stock. In addition, on January 9, 2012, Revlon, Inc. paid to holders of record of the Preferred Stock at the close of business on December 28, 2011 the Regular Dividend in the amount of $0.165569 per share, or approximately $1.5 million in the aggregate, for the period from October 10, 2011 through January 9, 2012.

Products Corporation enters into foreign currency forward exchange contracts and option contracts from time to time to hedge certain net cash flows denominated in currencies other than the local currencies of the Company’s foreign and domestic operations. The foreign currency forward exchange contracts are entered into primarily for the purpose of hedging anticipated inventory purchases and certain intercompany payments denominated in currencies other than the local currencies of the Company’s foreign and domestic operations and generally have maturities of less than one year. At December 31, 2011, the notional amount of FX Contracts outstanding was $58.4 million. The fair value of FX Contracts outstanding at December 31, 2011 was $(0.6) million.

  (a) 

Amount refers to the aggregate principal amount outstanding under the Non-Contributed Loan, after giving effect to the consummation of the 2009 Exchange Offer in October 2009 in which MacAndrews & Forbes contributed to Revlon, Inc. $48.6 million of the $107.0 million aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan made by MacAndrews & Forbes to Products Corporation. Pursuant to the terms of the 2009 Exchange Offer, the maturity date of the Non-Contributed Loan which remains owing from Products Corporation to MacAndrews & Forbes was extended from August 2010 to October 8, 2014.

 

  (b) 

Reflects the Preferred Stock issued in the 2009 Exchange Offer, which has a liquidation preference of $5.21 per share. Each share of Preferred Stock entitles its holder to receive cash payments of approximately $7.87 over the four-year term of the Preferred Stock, through the quarterly payment of 12.75% annual cash dividends and a $5.21 per share liquidation preference payable at maturity on October 8, 2013 (assuming Revlon, Inc. does not engage in one of certain specified change of control transactions), in each case to the extent that Revlon, Inc. has lawfully available funds to effect such payments. If Revlon, Inc. engages in one of certain specified change of control transactions (not including any transaction with MacAndrews & Forbes) within three years of consummation of the 2009 Exchange Offer, the holders of the Preferred Stock will have the right to receive a special dividend if the per share equity value of the Company in the change of control transaction is higher than the liquidation preference plus paid and accrued and unpaid dividends on the Preferred Stock, capped at an amount that would provide aggregate cash payments of up to $12.00 per share.

 

  (c) 

Consists of interest primarily on the $796.0 million in aggregate principal amount outstanding under the 2011 Term Loan Facility and on the $330.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the 9 3/4% Senior Secured Notes through the respective maturity dates based upon assumptions regarding the amount of debt outstanding under the 2011 Term Loan Agreement and interest rates on the Company’s debt instruments as of December 31, 2011.

  (f) 

Consists of purchase commitments for finished goods, raw materials, components and services pursuant to enforceable and legally binding obligations which include all significant terms, including fixed or minimum quantities to be purchased; fixed, minimum or variable price provisions; and the approximate timing of the transactions.

 

  (g) 

Consists primarily of media and advertising contracts, pension funding obligations (amount due within one year only, as subsequent pension funding obligation amounts cannot be reasonably estimated since the return on pension assets in future periods, as well as future pension assumptions, are not known), software licensing agreements and obligations related to third-party warehousing services. Such amounts exclude employment agreements, severance and other immaterial contractual commitments.

Off-Balance Sheet Transactions

The Company does not maintain any off-balance sheet transactions, arrangements, obligations or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or others that are reasonably likely to have a material current or future effect on the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Discussion of Critical Accounting Policies

In the ordinary course of its business, the Company has made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of results of operations and financial condition in the preparation of its financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”). Actual results could differ significantly from those estimates and assumptions. The Company believes that the following discussion addresses the Company’s most critical accounting policies, which are those that are most important to the portrayal of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations and require management’s most difficult, subjective and complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain.

Sales Returns:

The Company allows customers to return their unsold products when they meet certain company-established criteria as outlined in the Company’s trade terms. The Company regularly reviews and revises, when deemed necessary, the Company’s estimates of sales returns based primarily upon actual returns, planned product discontinuances and promotional sales, which would permit customers to return items based upon the Company’s trade terms. The Company records estimated sales returns as a reduction to sales and cost of sales, and an increase in accrued liabilities and inventories.

Returned products, which are recorded as inventories, are valued based upon the amount that the Company expects to realize upon their subsequent disposition. The physical condition and marketability of the returned products are the major factors the Company considers in estimating realizable value. Cost of sales includes the cost of refurbishment of returned products. Actual returns, as well as realized values on returned products, may differ significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from the Company’s estimates if factors such as product discontinuances, customer inventory levels or competitive conditions differ from the Company’s estimates and expectations and, in the case of actual returns, if economic conditions differ significantly from the Company’s estimates and expectations.

Trade Support Costs:

In order to support the retail trade, the Company has various performance-based arrangements with retailers to reimburse them for all or a portion of their promotional activities related to the Company’s products. The Company regularly reviews and revises, when deemed necessary, estimates of costs to the Company for these promotions based on estimates of what has been incurred by the retailers. Actual costs incurred by the Company may differ significantly if factors such as the level and success of the retailers’ programs, as well as retailer participation levels, differ from the Company’s estimates and expectations.

Inventories:

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market value. Cost is principally determined by the first-in, first-out method. The Company records adjustments to the value of inventory based upon its forecasted plans to

 

51


sell its inventories, as well as planned discontinuances. The physical condition (e.g., age and quality) of the inventories is also considered in establishing its valuation. These adjustments are estimates, which could vary significantly, either favorably or unfavorably, from the amounts that the Company may ultimately realize upon the disposition of inventories if future economic conditions, customer inventory levels, product discontinuances, return levels or competitive conditions differ from the Company’s estimates and expectations.

Pension Benefits:

The Company sponsors both funded and unfunded pension and other retirement plans in various forms covering employees who meet the applicable eligibility requirements. The Company uses several statistical and other factors in an attempt to estimate future events in calculating the liability and net periodic benefit cost related to these plans. These factors include assumptions about the discount rate, expected long-term return on plan assets and rate of future compensation increases as determined annually by the Company, within certain guidelines, which assumptions would be subject to revisions if significant events occur during the year. The Company uses December 31st as its measurement date for defined benefit pension plan obligations and assets.

The Company selected a weighted-average discount rate of 4.38% in 2011, representing a decrease from the 5.17% weighted-average discount rate selected in 2010 for the Company’s U.S. defined benefit pension plans. The Company selected an average discount rate for the Company’s international defined benefit pension plans of 4.77% in 2011, representing a decrease from the 5.32% average discount rate selected in 2010. The discount rates are used to measure the benefit obligations at the measurement date and the net periodic benefit cost for the subsequent calendar year and are reset annually using data available at the measurement date. The changes in the discount rates used for 2011 were primarily due to decreasing long-term interest yields on high-quality corporate bonds during 2011. At December 31, 2011, the decrease in the discount rates from December 31, 2010 had the effect of increasing the Company’s projected pension benefit obligation by approximately $60.9 million. For 2012, the Company expects that the aforementioned decrease in the discount rate will have the effect of increasing the net periodic benefit cost for its U.S. and international defined benefit pension plans by approximately $0.5 million, as compared to the net periodic benefit cost for 2011.

Each year during the first quarter, the Company selects an expected long-term rate of return on its pension plan assets. For the Company’s U.S. defined benefit pension plans, the expected long-term rate of return on the pension plan assets used was 8.00% and 8.25% for 2011 and 2010, respectively. The average expected long-term rate of return used for the Company’s international plans was 6.25% and 6.50% for 2011 and 2010, respectively.

The table below reflects the Company’s estimates of the possible effects of changes in the discount rates and expected long-term rates of return on its 2011 net periodic benefit costs and its projected benefit obligation at December 31, 2011 for the Company’s principal defined benefit pension plans, with all other assumptions remaining constant:

The rate of future compensation increases is another assumption used by the Company’s third party actuarial consultants for pension accounting. The rate of future compensation increases used in both 2011 and 2010 was 3.5% for the U.S. defined benefit pension plans, excluding the Revlon Employees’ Retirement Plan and the Revlon Pension Equalization Plan, as the rate of future compensation increases is no longer relevant to such plans due to the plan amendments made in May 2009.

In addition, the Company’s actuarial consultants also use other factors such as withdrawal and mortality rates. The actuarial assumptions used by the Company may differ materially from actual results due to changing

 

52


market and economic conditions, higher or lower withdrawal rates or longer or shorter life spans of participants, among other things. Differences from these assumptions could significantly impact the actual amount of net periodic benefit cost and liability recorded by the Company.

Goodwill:

Goodwill, net totaled $194.7 million and $182.7 million as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The Company operates in one reportable segment, which is also the only reporting unit for purposes of accounting for goodwill. Since the Company currently only has one reporting unit, all of its goodwill has been assigned to the enterprise as a whole. The determination of the value of goodwill requires management to make estimates and assumptions. Goodwill is reviewed for impairment annually, using September 30th carrying values. As the Company has a negative carrying value, managment performed an assessment of qualitative factors and concluded that it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment does not exist. The Company did not record any impairment of goodwill during the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 or 2009. In addition, the Company assesses potential impairments to goodwill when there is evidence that events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recovered. As of December 31, 2011, there have been no significant events since the timing of the Company’s annual impairment test that would have triggered additional impairment testing.

Income Taxes:

The Company records income taxes based on amounts payable with respect to the current year and includes the effect of deferred taxes. The effective tax rate reflects statutory tax rates, tax-planning opportunities available in various jurisdictions in which the Company operates, and the Company’s estimate of the ultimate outcome of various tax audits and issues. Determining the Company’s effective tax rate and evaluating tax positions requires significant judgment.

The Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the future impact of differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, as well as for operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. The Company measures deferred tax assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which management expects that the Company will recover or settle those differences. The Company has established valuation allowances for deferred tax assets when management has determined that it is not more likely than not that the Company will realize a tax benefit. In 2010, the Company recognized a non-cash benefit of $260.6 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets in the U.S. at December 31, 2010. In addition, in 2011, the Company recognized a non-cash benefit of $16.9 million related to a reduction of the Company’s deferred tax valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets in certain jurisdictions outside the U.S. at December 31, 2011. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Provision for (benefit from) income taxes,” for further discussion.

The Company recognizes a tax position in its financial statements when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, based on the merits of such position.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements:

In December 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2010-28, “When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts”, which amends Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 350, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other” (“ASU 2010-28”). ASU 2010-28 amends the criteria for performing Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. For such reporting units, Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test is required if qualitative factors exist that indicate it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists. The provisions of ASU 2010-28 are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-08, “Intangibles-Goodwill and Other: Testing Goodwill for Impairment”, which amends the qualitative factor examples in ASC 350 and permits an entity to elect the option to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the first step in the two-step impairment testing process. ASU No. 2011-08 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption

permitted. The Company adopted the provisions of ASU 2010-28 and ASU No. 2011-08 in 2011 and such adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or its disclosures.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards” (“IFRS”), which amends ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement”. ASU No. 2011-04 modifies ASC 820 to include disclosure of all transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 asset and liability fair value categories. In addition, ASU No. 2011-04 provides guidance on measuring the fair value of financial instruments managed within a portfolio and the application of premiums and discounts on fair value measurements. ASU No. 2011-04 requires additional disclosure for Level 3 measurements regarding the sensitivity of fair value to changes in unobservable inputs and any interrelationships between those inputs. ASU No. 2011-04 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption prohibited. The Company does not expect such adoption will have a material impact on its results of operations, financial condition or disclosures.

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”. ASU No. 2011-05 eliminates the current option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in equity. Under ASU No. 2011-05, an entity can elect to present items of net income and other comprehensive income in one continuous statement or in two separate, but consecutive, statements. ASU No. 2011-05 is effective for publicly traded companies as of the beginning of a fiscal year that begins after December 15, 2011 and interim and annual periods thereafter. Early adoption of ASU No. 2011-05 is permitted, but full retrospective application is required. As the Company reports comprehensive income within its Statement of Stockholders’ Deficiency and Comprehensive Income, the adoption of ASU No. 2011-05 will impact the presentation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements beginning in the first quarter of 2012.

Inflation

The Company’s costs are affected by inflation and the effects of inflation may be experienced by the Company in future periods. Management believes, however, that such effects have not been material to the Company during the past three years in the U.S. and in foreign non-hyperinflationary countries. The Company operates in certain countries around the world, such as Argentina and Venezuela, which have in the past experienced hyperinflation. In hyperinflationary foreign countries, the Company attempts to mitigate the effects of inflation by increasing prices in line with inflation, where possible, and efficiently managing its costs and working capital levels.

Effective January 1, 2010, the Company determined that the Venezuelan economy should be considered a highly inflationary economy under U.S. GAAP based upon a blended inflation index of the Venezuelan National Consumer Price Index (“NCPI”) and the Venezuelan Consumer Price Index (“CPI”). (See “Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources – Impact of Foreign Currency Translation - Venezuela” for details regarding the designation of Venezuela as a highly inflationary economy effective January 1, 2010 and the Venezuelan government’s announcement of the devaluation of its local currency on January 8, 2010).

 

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Interest Rate Sensitivity

The Company has exposure to changing interest rates primarily under the 2011 Term Loan Facility and 2011 Revolving Credit Facility. The Company manages interest rate risk through the use of a combination of fixed and floating rate debt. The Company from time to time makes use of derivative financial instruments to adjust its fixed and floating rate ratio.

The table below provides information about the Company’s indebtedness that is sensitive to changes in interest rates. The table presents cash flows with respect to principal on indebtedness and related weighted average interest rates by expected maturity dates. Weighted average variable rates are based on implied forward rates in the U.S. Dollar LIBOR yield curve at December 31, 2011. The information is presented in U.S. dollar equivalents, which is the Company’s reporting currency.

Exchange Rate Sensitivity

The Company manufactures and sells its products in a number of countries throughout the world and, as a result, is exposed to movements in foreign currency exchange rates. In addition, a portion of the Company’s borrowings are denominated in foreign currencies, which are also subject to market risk associated with exchange rate movement. The Company from time to time hedges major foreign currency cash exposures through foreign exchange forward and option contracts. Products Corporation enters into these contracts with major financial institutions in an attempt to minimize counterparty risk. These contracts generally have a duration of less than twelve months and are primarily against the U.S. dollar. In addition, Products Corporation enters into foreign currency swaps to hedge intercompany financing transactions. The Company does not hold or issue financial instruments for trading purposes.

Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosures

None.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

(a) Disclosure Controls and Procedures. The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company’s reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal year covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

(b) Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Company’s internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

   

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of its assets;

 

   

provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of its financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that its receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of its management and directors; and

 

   

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on its financial statements.

Internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements due to its inherent limitations. Management’s projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as to future periods are subject to the risks that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

The Company’s management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011 and in making this assessment used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).

Revlon, Inc.’s management determined that as of December 31, 2011, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective.

KPMG LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm that audited the Company’s financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2011, has issued a report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. This report appears on page F-3.

(c) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting. There have not been any changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Forward Looking Statements

This Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, as well as other public documents and statements of the Company, contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, which are based on the beliefs, expectations, estimates, projections, assumptions, forecasts, plans, anticipations, targets, outlooks, initiatives, visions, objectives, strategies, opportunities, drivers, focus and intents of the Company’s management. While the Company believes that its estimates and assumptions are reasonable, the Company cautions that it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors, and, of course, it is impossible for the Company to anticipate all factors that could affect its results. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those discussed in such forward-looking statements. Such statements include, without limitation, the Company’s expectations and estimates (whether qualitative or quantitative) as to:

(i)   the Company’s future financial performance;

(ii) the effect on sales of decreased consumer spending in response to weak economic conditions or weakness in the cosmetics category in the mass retail channel; adverse changes in currency exchange rates and/or currency controls; decreased sales of the Company’s products as a result of increased competitive activities by the Company’s competitors, changes in consumer purchasing habits, including with respect to shopping channels; retailer inventory management; retailer space reconfigurations or reductions in retailer display space; changes in retailer pricing or promotional strategies; less than anticipated results from the Company’s existing or new products or from its advertising, promotional and/or marketing plans; or if the Company’s expenses, including, without limitation, for pension expense under its benefit plans, insurance premiums and costs related to litigation, advertising, promotional and marketing activities or for sales returns related to any reduction of retail space, product discontinuances or otherwise, exceed the anticipated level of expenses;

(iii) the Company’s belief that the continued execution of its business strategy could include taking advantage of additional opportunities to reposition, repackage or reformulate one or more brands or product lines, launching additional new products, acquiring businesses or brands, further refining its approach to retail merchandising and/or taking further actions to optimize its manufacturing, sourcing and organizational size and structure, any of which, the intended purpose of which would be to create value through profitable growth, could result in the Company making investments and/or recognizing charges related to executing against such opportunities;

(iv) the Company’s expectations regarding its strategic goal to profitably grow its business and as to the business strategies employed to achieve this goal, which are: (a) continuing to build its strong brands by focusing on innovative, high-quality, consumer-preferred brand offering; effective consumer brand communication; appropriate levels of advertising and promotion; and superb execution with its retail partners; (b) continuing to develop its organizational capability through attracting, retaining and rewarding highly capable people and through performance management, development planning, succession planning and training; (c) continuing to drive common global processes which are designed to provide the most efficient and effective allocation of its resources; (d) continuing to focus on increasing its operating profit and cash flow; and (e) continuing to improve its capital structure by focusing on strengthening its balance sheet and reducing debt;

(v) restructuring activities, restructuring costs and charges, the timing of restructuring payments and the benefits from such activities;

(vi) the Company’s expectation that operating revenues, cash on hand and funds available for borrowing under Products Corporation’s 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and other permitted lines of credit will be sufficient to enable the Company to cover its operating expenses for 2012, including the cash requirements referred to in item (viii) below;

 

57


(vii) the Company’s expected principal sources of funds, including operating revenues, cash on hand and funds available for borrowing under Products Corporation’s 2011 Revolving Credit Facility and other permitted lines of credit, as well as the availability of funds from delaying the implementation of or revising certain aspects of the Company’s business strategy; reducing or delaying purchases of wall displays or advertising, promotional or marketing expenses; reducing or delaying capital spending; implementing new restructuring programs; refinancing Products Corporation’s indebtedness; selling assets or operations; capital contributions and/or loans from MacAndrews & Forbes, the Company’s other affiliates and/or third parties; the sale of additional equity securities of Revlon, Inc. or additional debt securities of Revlon, Inc. or Products Corporation; and/or reducing other discretionary spending;

(viii) the Company’s expected principal uses of funds, including amounts required for the payment of operating expenses, including expenses in connection with the continued execution of the Company’s business strategy, insurance premiums, payments in connection with the Company’s purchases of permanent wall displays, capital expenditure requirements, debt service payments and costs, tax payments, pension and post-retirement benefit plan contributions, restructuring programs, severance not otherwise included in the Company’s restructuring programs, debt repurchases (including without limitation, that the Company may also, from time to time, seek to retire or purchase its outstanding debt obligations in open market purchases, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise and may seek to refinance some or all of its indebtedness based upon market conditions) and costs related to litigation; and its estimates of the amount and timing of its operating expenses, insurance premiums, debt service payments (including payments required under Products Corporation’s debt instruments), cash contributions to the Company’s pension plans and its other post-retirement benefit plans, net periodic benefit costs for the pension and other post-retirement benefit plans, cash tax payments, purchases of permanent wall displays, capital expenditures, restructuring costs and payments, severance costs and payments, debt repurchases and costs related to litigation;

(ix) matters concerning the Company’s market-risk sensitive instruments, as well as the Company’s expectations as to the counterparty’s performance, including that any loss arising from the non-performance by the counterparty would not be material;

(x) the Company’s plan to efficiently manage its cash and working capital, including, among other things, programs intended to optimize inventory levels over time; centralized procurement to secure discounts and efficiencies; prudent management of accounts receivable and accounts payable; and controls on general and administrative spending; and the Company’s belief that in the ordinary course of business, its source or use of cash from operating activities may vary on a quarterly basis as a result of a number of factors, including the timing of working capital flows;

(xi) the Company’s expectations regarding its future net periodic benefit cost for its U.S. and international defined benefit plans;

(xii) the Company’s expectation that the payment of the quarterly dividends on the Preferred Stock will be funded by cash interest payments to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation on the Contributed Loan (the $48.6 million portion of the Senior Subordinated Term Loan that was contributed to Revlon, Inc. by MacAndrews & Forbes in connection with consummating the 2009 Exchange Offer), subject to Revlon, Inc. having sufficient surplus or net profits in accordance with Delaware law, and its expectation of paying the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock on October 8, 2013 with the cash payment to be received by Revlon, Inc. from Products Corporation in respect of the maturity of the principal amount outstanding under the Contributed Loan, subject to Revlon, Inc. having sufficient surplus in accordance with Delaware law;

(xiii) the Company’s expectations as to the future impact of the further devaluation of Bolivars, including, without limitation, that given that the Company has immaterial transactions for essential goods, the Company’s expectations that it will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial condition;

 

58


(xiv) the Company’s belief that it maintains comprehensive property insurance, as well as business interruption insurance; and the Company’s belief that the business interruption losses incurred in 2011 are not indicative of future business interruption losses for insurance purposes or future expected profits for Revlon Venezuela;

(xv) the Company’s plans to continue to assess the potential impact of the March 2011 disaster in Japan and its aftermath on the Company’s global supply chain;

(xvi) the Company’s expectation and belief that (a) as a result of its improved earnings trends and the Company’s tax position, and based upon the Company’s current projections for future taxable income over the periods in which the deferred tax assets are recoverable, management believes that it is more likely than not that the Company will realize the benefits of the net deferred tax assets existing at December 31, 2011 in certain jurisdictions outside the U.S., and (b) the increase in the effective tax rate will not affect the Company’s cash taxes paid in 2012 and thereafter until the Company has fully used its tax loss carryforwards and other tax attributes in the U.S.;

(xvii) the Company’s belief that while the outcome of all pending legal proceedings in the aggregate is unlikely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and/or its results of operations, in light of the uncertainties involved in legal proceedings generally, the ultimate outcome of a particular matter could be material to the Company’s operating results for a particular period depending on, among other things, the size of the loss or the nature of the liability imposed and the level of the Company’s income for that particular period; and

(xviii) the Company’s belief that the allegations contained in the amended Sullivan complaint, the amended complaint in the Consolidated Action, the amended Garofalo complaint and the Smutek complaint are without merit and intends to vigorously defend against them, that it has substantial factual and legal defenses to the claims at issue and that it would prevail at trial.

Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about the Company’s beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by, among other things, the use of forward-looking language such as “estimates,” “objectives,” “visions,” “projects,” “forecasts,” “focus,” “drive towards,” “plans,” “targets,” “strategies,” “opportunities,” “assumptions,” “drivers,” “believes,” “intends,” “outlooks,” “initiatives,” “expects,” “scheduled to,” “anticipates,” “seeks,” “may,” “will” or “should” or the negative of those terms, or other variations of those terms or comparable language, or by discussions of strategies, targets, long-range plans, models or intentions. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and except for the Company’s ongoing obligations under the U.S. federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Investors are advised, however, to consult any additional disclosures the Company made or may make in its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, in each case filed with the SEC in 2012 and 2011 (which, among other places, can be found on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov, as well as on the Company’s corporate website at www.revloninc.com). Except as expressly set forth in this Form 10-K, the information available from time to time on such websites shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into this Annual Report on Form 10-K. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. In addition to factors that may be described in the Company’s filings with the SEC, including this filing, the following factors, among others, could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements made by the Company:

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

The Board of Directors and Stockholders

Revlon, Inc.:

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholders’ deficiency and comprehensive income (loss), and cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2011. In connection with our audits of the consolidated financial statements, we also have audited the financial statement schedule as listed on the index on page F-1. These consolidated financial statements and the financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements and the financial statement schedule based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2011, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Also in our opinion, the related financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the effectiveness of Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries’ internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), and our report dated February 16, 2012, expressed an unqualified opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

The Board of Directors and Stockholders

Revlon, Inc.:

We have audited Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries’ internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries’ management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. Our audit also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding the prevention and timely detection of any unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion, Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheets of Revlon, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related consolidated statements of income, stockholders’ deficiency and comprehensive income (loss), and cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended December 31, 2011, and our report dated February 16, 2012 expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements.

See Note 11, “Financial Instruments” and Note 17, “Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss” for details regarding the net amount of hedge accounting derivative losses recognized in 2010 and 2009 due to the Company’s use of derivative financial instruments.

(c) 

See Note 14, “Savings Plan, Pension and Post-retirement Benefits,” and Note 17, “Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss,” for details on the change in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss as a result of the amortization of unrecognized prior service costs and actuarial losses (gains) arising during 2011, 2010 and 2009 related to the Company’s pension and other post-retirement plans.

See Note 14, “Savings Plan, Pension and Post-retirement Benefits,” and Note 17, “Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss,” for details on the increase in pension liabilities recorded within Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss as the result of the re-measurement of the pension liabilities, as well as the curtailment gain recognized by the Company in connection with the May 2009 Pension Plan Amendments (as hereinafter defined) in 2009 and the curtailment gain recognized by the Company in connection with the amendments to the Canadian defined benefit pension plan in 2010, which both reduced the Company’s pension liability and were recorded as an offset against the net actuarial losses previously reported within Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss in the respective years.
