Kraft Heinz Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results

  • Q2 net income attributable to common shareholders increased 50.5%; Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 1.9% on a constant currency basis
  • Q2 diluted EPS increased to $0.94; Adjusted EPS(1) increased to $0.98, up from $0.85 the prior year

PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2017-- The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported second quarter 2017 financial results that reflected significant gains from cost savings initiatives and benefits from the redemption of preferred stock in the prior year that were partially offset by the impact of lower net sales.

“As expected, our second quarter results were sequentially better than our first quarter, and we expect this momentum to continue into the second half of the year,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees. “Our plan from the start has been to drive strong cost savings to fuel investments in people, capabilities and brands that can lead to sustainable, profitable growth. That's what we see happening now, and expect to continue going forward.”

Q2 2017 Financial Summary

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change
July 1, 2017   July 3, 2016 Actual  

Impact of Currency

  Organic
(in millions, except per share data)
Net sales $ 6,677 $ 6,793 (1.7 )% (0.8 ) pp (0.9 )%
Operating income 1,921 1,636 17.5 %
Net income/(loss) attributable to common shareholders 1,159 770 50.5 %

Adjusted EBITDA(1) 2,101 2,087 0.7 % (1.2 ) pp
Adjusted EPS(1) $ 0.98 $ 0.85 15.3 %
 

Net sales were $6.7 billion, down 1.7 percent versus the year-ago period, including an unfavorable 0.8 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales decreased 0.9 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing was 0.4 percentage points lower as timing of promotions in North America and Europe more than offset price increases in Rest of World markets, primarily Latin America. Volume/mix decreased 0.5 percentage points as growth in condiments and sauces in all business segments was more than offset by lower shipments in cheese, meats and foodservice in the United States.

Net income attributable to common shareholders increased to $1.2 billion and diluted EPS increased to $0.94, primarily driven by lower Integration Program and restructuring costs, benefits from the refinancing of Series A Preferred Stock and a lower effective tax rate. Adjusted EBITDA increased 0.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $2.1 billion, despite an unfavorable 1.2 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, the increase in Adjusted EBITDA reflected incremental gains from cost savings initiatives(2) that were partly offset by a combination of factors that included higher input costs, lower net sales as well as business investments in Rest of World markets. Adjusted EPS increased 15.3 percent versus the year-ago period to $0.98, primarily due to benefits from the refinancing of Series A Preferred Stock and lower taxes.

United States net sales were $4.6 billion, down 1.2 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing decreased 0.4 percentage points reflecting timing of trade promotion recognition in the prior year that more than offset price increases in cheese. Volume/mix decreased 0.8 percentage points as the benefit from a shift in Easter-related sales as well as gains in frozen, macaroni and cheese, and condiments and sauces were more than offset by select distribution losses in cheese and meats as well as lower shipments in foodservice.

United States Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 3.2 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.6 billion, driven by gains from cost savings initiatives that were partially offset by unfavorable key commodity(3) costs, particularly in cheese and coffee, as well as lower net sales.

Canada

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change
July 1, 2017   July 3, 2016 Actual   Impact of Currency   Organic

Canada net sales were $597 million, down 6.4 percent versus the year-ago period, including a negative 3.3 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales decreased 3.1 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing decreased 3.7 percentage points primarily due to an increased level of promotional activity versus the prior year. Volume/mix increased 0.6 percentage points, reflecting growth in condiments and sauces that more than offset the discontinuation of select cheese products.

Canada Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 1.2 percent versus the year-ago period to $189 million, including an unfavorable 3.5 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 2.3 percentage points as gains from cost savings more than offset the impact of lower pricing.

Organic Net Sales were 0.8 percent lower than the year-ago period. Pricing decreased 1.6 percentage points due to changes in promotional spending levels versus the prior year, primarily in the UK and Italy. Volume/mix increased 0.8 percentage points driven by strong consumption gains in condiments and sauces and gains in foodservice that were partially offset by shipment timing versus the prior year period as well as ongoing consumption weakness in Italy.

Europe Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 8.6 percent versus the year-ago period to $202 million, including a negative 6.2 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding currency impacts, the decline in Segment Adjusted EBITDA reflected cost savings that were more than offset by higher input costs in local currency and lower pricing.

Rest of World(6)

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change

Organic Net Sales increased 3.0 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 3.7 percentage points primarily driven by actions to offset higher input costs in local currency, particularly in Latin America. Volume/mix was 0.7 percentage points lower as strong growth in condiments and sauces was more than offset by a combination of significantly lower shipments in India, unfavorable holiday-related shipment phasing in Indonesia, as well as the impact of distributor network realignment in several markets.

Rest of World Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 11.6 percent versus the year-ago period to $180 million, including an unfavorable 3.0 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, Segment Adjusted EBITDA declined 8.6 percentage points, primarily due to the decline in volume/mix, increased business investments to support growth as well as higher input costs in local currency.

This press release contains a number of forward-looking statements. Words such as "expect," "momentum," "continue," "forward," "remain," "execute," "expand," "drive," "believe," "will," and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's plans, objectives, cost savings, initiatives, opportunities, capabilities, investments, execution and growth. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and beyond the Company's control.

Important factors that may affect the Company's business and operations and that may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, increased competition; the Company's ability to maintain, extend and expand its reputation and brand image; the Company's ability to differentiate its products from other brands; the consolidation of retail customers; the Company's ability to predict, identify and interpret changes in consumer preferences and demand; the Company's ability to drive revenue growth in its key product categories, increase its market share or add products; an impairment of the carrying value of goodwill or other indefinite-lived intangible assets; volatility in commodity, energy and other input costs; changes in the Company's management team or other key personnel; the Company's inability to realize the anticipated benefits from the Company's cost savings initiatives; changes in relationships with significant customers and suppliers; execution of the Company's international expansion strategy; changes in laws and regulations; legal claims or other regulatory enforcement actions; product recalls or product liability claims; unanticipated business disruptions; failure to successfully integrate the business and operations of the Company in the expected time frame; the Company's ability to complete or realize the benefits from potential and completed acquisitions, alliances, divestitures or joint ventures; economic and political conditions in the nations in which the Company operates; the volatility of capital markets; increased pension, labor and people-related expenses; volatility in the market value of all or a portion of the derivatives that the Company uses; exchange rate fluctuations; risks associated with information technology and systems, including service interruptions, misappropriation of data or breaches of security; the Company's inability to protect intellectual property rights; impacts of natural events in the locations in which the Company or its customers, suppliers or regulators operate; the Company's indebtedness and ability to pay such indebtedness; tax law changes or interpretations; and other factors. For additional information on these and other factors that could affect the Company's forward-looking statements, see the Company's risk factors, as they may be amended from time to time, set forth in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company disclaims and does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement in this press release, except as required by applicable law or regulation.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial information, the Company has presented Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures provided should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, financial measures prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) that are presented in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures presented may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, and other companies may not define these non-GAAP financial measures in the same way. These measures are not substitutes for their comparable GAAP financial measures, such as net sales, net income/(loss), diluted earnings per share, or other measures prescribed by GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP financial measures.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assist in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis for purposes of business decision making by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations. Management believes that presenting the Company's non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors because it (i) provides investors with meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain items, (ii) permits investors to view performance using the same tools that management uses to budget, make operating and strategic decisions, and evaluate historical performance, and (iii) otherwise provides supplemental information that may be useful to investors in evaluating the Company's results. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provides investors with additional understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company's business than could be obtained absent these disclosures.

Organic Net Sales is defined as net sales excluding, when they occur, the impact of acquisitions, currency, divestitures and a 53rd week of shipments. The Company calculates the impact of currency on net sales by holding exchange rates constant at the previous year's exchange rate, with the exception of Venezuela following the Company's June 28, 2015 currency devaluation, for which the Company calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Organic Net Sales is a tool that can assist management and investors in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, other expense/(income), net, provision for/(benefit from) income taxes; in addition to these adjustments, the Company excludes, when they occur, the impacts of depreciation and amortization (excluding integration and restructuring expenses) (including amortization of postretirement benefit plans prior service credits), integration and restructuring expenses, merger costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, losses/(gains) on the sale of a business, nonmonetary currency devaluation (e.g., remeasurement gains and losses), and equity award compensation expense (excluding integration and restructuring expenses). The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA on a constant currency basis. The Company calculates the impact of currency on Adjusted EBITDA by holding exchange rates constant at the previous year's exchange rate, with the exception of Venezuela following the Company's June 28, 2015 devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar and remeasurement of assets and liabilities of its Venezuelan subsidiary, for which it calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Adjusted EBITDA is a tool that can assist management and investors in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations.

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted earnings per share excluding, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, merger costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, losses/(gains) on the sale of a business, and nonmonetary currency devaluation (e.g., remeasurement gains and losses), and including when they occur, adjustments to reflect preferred stock dividend payments on an accrual basis. The Company believes Adjusted EPS provides important comparability of underlying operating results, allowing investors and management to assess operating performance on a consistent basis.

See the attached schedules for supplemental financial data, which includes the financial information, the non-GAAP financial measures and corresponding reconciliations for the relevant periods.

There were no cash distributions related to our Series A Preferred Stock for the three months ended April 3, 2016 because, concurrent with the declaration of our common stock dividend on December 8, 2015, we also declared and paid the Series A Preferred Stock dividend that would otherwise have been payable on March 7, 2016.
