“This was an outstanding season and a giant step forward in the execution of our long-term strategic plan,” said Jim Hagedorn, chairman and chief executive officer. “Not only did our core business have an exceptional recovery after weather-related challenges at the peak of the season, we also completed the joint venture between Scotts LawnService and TruGreen, closed on two major hydroponics acquisitions and created a new partnership with Bonnie Plants. As we enter Year 2 of ‘Project Focus,’ we will continue with the reconfiguration of our portfolio to add emphasis on our core U.S. consumer business and emerging high-growth opportunities under the Hawthorne Gardening Company umbrella.

“Overall, we remain optimistic about our company-wide growth prospects for 2017 and remain on track to achieve our long-term operating margin goal of 18 percent.”
