Sample article from our Food & Beverage

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"Our fourth quarter and full-year results demonstrate the continued execution of our strategy and momentum of the business, amid a challenging and dynamic environment. Our strong financial results reflect sustained consumer demand for at-home food and coffee and consumers' desire for our trusted and iconic brands," said Mark Smucker, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During the year, we also made significant progress in strengthening our financial position, as we reduced our debt balance, while also returning cash to our shareholders through dividends and share repurchases."

"Looking ahead to fiscal year 2023, we are focused on continuing the momentum of the business, investing in growth focused platforms such as Uncrustables®, partnering with retailers to restock Jif® products following the recent recall, and supporting our talented employees who are instrumental to our success. With strong underlying momentum across our portfolio of brands, we remain confident in our ability to execute our strategic priorities and support long-term shareholder value creation."

(A) Subsequent to April 30, 2022, we initiated a voluntary recall of select Jif® peanut butter products produced at our Lexington, Kentucky, facility and sold primarily in the U.S. due to potential salmonella contamination. As a result, we recorded reserves of $52.3 million in our consolidated financial statements as of April 30, 2022, within our U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segment, which was inclusive of unsaleable inventory, estimated customer returns, and consumer refunds. We anticipate these costs will be recovered by insurance, and as a result, an insurance receivable of $49.8 million, net of the deductible, was also recorded as of April 30, 2022.

Based on our best estimates, in fiscal year 2023, we anticipate an additional unfavorable impact of approximately $125.0 million, net of the remaining anticipated insurance recoveries, primarily related to the estimated impact of manufacturing downtime, customer returns, and unsaleable inventory, as well as other recall related costs. The ultimate impact from the Jif® peanut butter recall could differ materially from these estimates.

Net Sales

Net sales increased 6 percent, including a 1 percent unfavorable impact of estimated customer returns related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. Excluding noncomparable net sales in the prior year of $59.9 million for the divested private label dry pet food and natural beverage and grains businesses, as well as a decreased contribution from foreign currency exchange of $0.7 million, net sales increased $174.2 million, or 9 percent.

The increase in comparable net sales was primarily driven by a 10 percentage point increase from net price realization, driven by each of the Company's business segments, reflecting list price increases. The favorable net price realization was partially offset by a 1 percentage point decrease from volume/mix.

Operating Income

Gross profit decreased $69.0 million, or 9 percent, including a 7 percent unfavorable impact of unsaleable inventory and estimated customer returns related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall as of April 30, 2022. The decline reflects the impact of the Jif® peanut butter product recall, the noncomparable impact related to divestitures, and a decreased contribution from volume/mix. Higher costs, primarily driven by increased commodity and ingredient, packaging, and manufacturing costs were offset by higher net price realization. Operating income increased $63.3 million, or 27 percent, as a $58.5 million decrease in selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses and a $16.1 million decrease in other special project costs offset the gross profit decline. Operating income also reflects an anticipated insurance recovery, net of deductible, that mostly offsets the unfavorable impact of unsaleable inventory, estimated customer returns, and consumer refunds related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall as of April 30, 2022.

Adjusted gross profit decreased $71.8 million, or 10 percent, with the difference from results based on generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") being the exclusion of the change in net cumulative unallocated derivative gains and losses and special project costs. Adjusted operating income increased $39.3 million, or 13 percent, further reflecting the exclusion of other special project costs.

Interest Expense and Income Taxes

Net interest expense decreased $4.4 million, primarily as a result of reduced debt outstanding as compared to the prior year.

The effective income tax rate was 22.3 percent, compared to 24.0 percent in the prior year. On a non-GAAP basis, the adjusted effective income tax rate was 22.3 percent, compared to 23.3 percent in the prior year. The prior year effective tax rates included Canadian withholding tax on a nonrecurring cash dividend repatriated during the fourth quarter.

Cash Flow and Debt

Cash provided by operating activities was $393.7 million, compared to $291.0 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting a decrease in cash used for income and other taxes, an increase in net income adjusted for noncash items, and a decrease in cash required to fund working capital, as compared to the prior year. Free cash flow was $220.7 million, compared to $183.0 million in the prior year, as the increase in cash provided by operating activities was partially offset by a $65.0 million increase in capital expenditures.

The Company repurchased 2.0 million common shares for $262.7 million in the fourth quarter.

FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK

The Company provided its full-year fiscal year 2023 guidance as summarized below:

Net sales increase vs prior year

 

3.5% - 4.5%

Adjusted earnings per share

 

$7.85 - $8.25

Free cash flow (in millions)

 

$500

Capital expenditures (in millions)

The pandemic and its related implications, along with ongoing cost inflation and volatility in supply chains, continue to impact financial results and cause uncertainty and risk for the fiscal year 2023 outlook. Any manufacturing or supply chain disruption, as well as changes in consumer purchasing behavior, retailer inventory levels, and broader macroeconomic conditions, could materially impact actual results. In particular, the recent Jif® peanut butter product recall will impact our financial results for the fiscal year. While the outlook remains uncertain, the Company continues to focus on managing the elements it can control, including taking the necessary steps to minimize the impact of cost inflation, the product recall, and any additional business disruption. This guidance reflects performance expectations based on the Company's current understanding of the overall environment, inclusive of the estimated unfavorable impact of the product recall.

Net sales are expected to increase 3.5 to 4.5 percent compared to the prior year. Excluding noncomparable net sales in the prior year for the divested private label dry pet food and natural beverage and grains businesses, net sales are expected to increase approximately 6 percent at the mid-point of the guidance range. This reflects higher net pricing to recover cost inflation across multiple categories, partially offset by the anticipated volume/mix impact of price elasticity of demand, and a 2 percent unfavorable impact related to estimated manufacturing downtime and customer returns from the Jif® peanut butter product recall.

Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $7.85 to $8.25, including a $0.90 estimated unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. This range reflects the benefits of higher net pricing actions and shares repurchased in the prior year being more than offset by cost inflation, the anticipated volume/mix impact of price elasticity of demand, the unfavorable impact of the Jif® peanut butter product recall, and increased SD&A expenses. This guidance assumes an adjusted gross profit margin range of 33.0 to 34.0 percent, including a 1 percent estimated unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall, an adjusted effective income tax rate of 24.2 percent, and 106.5 million common shares outstanding. Free cash flow is expected to be approximately $500 million, inclusive of the estimated unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall, with capital expenditures of $550 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding divestitures and foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit; adjusted operating income; adjusted income; adjusted earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges related to intangible assets ("EBITDA (as adjusted)"); and free cash flow, as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally. The Company believes that investors' understanding of its performance is enhanced by disclosing these performance measures. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures are used by management in preparation of the annual budget and for the monthly analyses of its operating results. The Board of Directors also utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures as components for measuring performance for incentive compensation purposes.

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items affecting comparability that can significantly affect the year-over-year assessment of operating results, which include amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets; certain divestiture, acquisition, integration, and restructuring costs ("special project costs"); gains and losses on divestitures; the net change in cumulative unallocated gains and losses on commodity and foreign currency exchange derivative activities ("change in net cumulative unallocated derivative gains and losses"); and other one-time items that do not directly reflect ongoing operating results. Income taxes, as adjusted is calculated using an adjusted effective income tax rate that is applied to adjusted income before income taxes and reflects the exclusion of the previously discussed items, as well as any adjustments for one-time tax related activities, when they occur. While this adjusted effective income tax rate does not generally differ materially from the GAAP effective income tax rate, certain exclusions from non-GAAP results, such as the one-time deferred state tax impact of the internal legal entity simplification during 2022, can significantly impact the adjusted effective income tax rate.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments. A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the current and prior year periods is included in the "Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables. The Company has also provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures for its fiscal year 2023 outlook.
