Prestige Brands Holdings Inc. (PBH) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-03-31. Prestige Brands Holdings Inc. has a market cap of $626.3 million; its shares were traded at around $12.47 with a P/E ratio of 16 and P/S ratio of 2.2.

Highlight of Business Operations:

In February 2005, we raised $448.0 million through an initial public offering of 28.0 million shares of common stock. We used the net proceeds of the offering ($416.8 million), plus $3.0 million from our revolving credit facility and $8.8 million of cash on hand to (i) repay $100.0 million of our existing senior indebtedness, (ii) redeem $84.0 million in aggregate principal amount of our existing 9.25% senior subordinated notes, (iii) repurchase an aggregate of 4.7 million shares of our common stock held by the investment funds affiliated with GTCR and TCW/Crescent Mezzanine, LLC (“TWC/Crescent”) for $30.2 million, and (iv) redeem all outstanding senior preferred units and class B preferred units of one of our subsidiaries for $199.8 million.

On October 28, 2009, we sold our three shampoo brands - Prell Shampoo, Denorex Dandruff Shampoo and Zincon Dandruff Shampoo. The terms of the sale included an upfront receipt of $8.0 million in cash, with a subsequent receipt of $1.0 million on October 28, 2010. We used the proceeds from the sale to reduce outstanding bank indebtedness.

In March 2010, we refinanced our outstanding long-term indebtedness through entry into a $150.0 million senior term loan facility due April 1, 2016, and the issuance of $150.0 million in senior notes with an 8.25% interest rate due 2018. Proceeds from the new indebtedness were used to retire our senior term loan facility originally due April 1, 2011 and 9.25% senior subordinated notes originally due April 15, 2012. Additionally, our new credit agreement included a $30.0 million revolving credit facility due April 1, 2015. The refinancing and new credit facility improved our liquidity, extended maturities and improved covenant ratios, all of which better positioned us to pursue strategic acquisitions.

On November 1, 2010, we acquired Blacksmith for $190.0 million in cash, plus a working capital adjustment of $13.4 million. Additionally, we paid $1.1 million on behalf of Blacksmith for the sellers' transaction costs. In connection with this acquisition, we acquired five OTC brands: Efferdent, Effergrip, PediaCare, Luden's and NasalCrom. In connection with the acquisition of Blacksmith, in November 2010, we (i) executed an Increase Joinder to our existing credit agreement pursuant to which we entered into an incremental term loan in the amount of $115.0 million and increased our revolving credit facility by $10.0 million to $40.0

On January 6, 2011, we completed the acquisition of certain assets comprising the Dramamine brand in the United States for $77.1 million in cash, including transaction costs incurred in the acquisition of $1.2 million. The purchase price was funded from cash on hand. The Dramamine brand is complementary to our existing OTC brands.

Efferdent Denture Cleanser holds a 31.6% share and the number two position in the $75.8 million Denture Cleanser Tablets category. The January 2011 introduction of Efferdent PM extended the brand into the growing overnight cleanser segment. Efferdent enjoys distribution on over 95.2% ACV. Effergrip denture adhesive competes in the $148.4 million adhesives category and holds a 0.7% share.
