TreeHouse Foods, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2021 Results

OAK BROOK, Ill., May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS) today reported first quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $0.01 compared to a loss of $(0.58) for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations1 was $0.36 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $0.37 in the first quarter of 2020.

"I'm proud of the underlying strength in our business that is reflected in our first quarter results, as revenue across most of our growth categories continued to outpace the rest of private label, while delivering strong profitability," said Steve Oakland, Chief Executive Officer and President. "Our results demonstrate ongoing progress on our strategic journey to build a company with long-term sustainable growth. We remain focused on improving our operational and commercial platforms, optimizing our portfolio and investing in people and talent to create value for our customers as their preferred manufacturing and distribution partner."

"We posted a strong start to the year, even as we lapped the unprecedented pantry stocking event last spring related to the pandemic," said Bill Kelley, EVP and Chief Financial Officer. "Importantly, we delivered adjusted gross profit margin1 of 18.1% and adjusted EPS of $0.36 in the face of increased inflationary pressures and weather-related disruption. In addition to delivering strong profitability, we improved our capital structure with the full redemption of our 6.000% notes due in 2024 and the refinancing of our credit facility. The enhanced strength of our balance sheet and our strong free cash flow will enable us to continue to execute a balanced capital allocation approach - focusing on investing to drive organic growth and returning capital to shareholders."

Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations, adjusted gross profit margin, and organic net sales are Non-GAAP financial measures. See "Comparison of Adjusted Information to GAAP Information" for the definitions of the Non-GAAP measures, information concerning certain items affecting comparability, and reconciliations of the GAAP to Non-GAAP measures.

OUTLOOK

TreeHouse reaffirmed its full year 2021 guidance ranges for adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $2.80 to $3.20 and reported net sales between $4.40 to $4.60 billion.

"The enhancements we have made to strengthen our business and improve our operating performance, combined with our commitment to excellent service and focus on our customers are critical as we navigate today's inflationary environment and continued pandemic-related uncertainty," Mr. Oakland continued. "As we make investments in our capabilities and adapt our supply chain to build greater depth in our growth categories, we are confident we will further capitalize on our leading portfolio of private label foods and beverages to drive greater value for all of our stakeholders."

TreeHouse continues to expect inflation to accelerate across several agricultural commodities, particularly edible oils, and higher transportation costs. Coupled with the higher cost inventory produced in the first quarter as a result of ingredient cost inflation and weather disruption, the Company expects temporary pressure on margins and earnings for the second quarter due to the timing lag of when pricing initiatives are realized. TreeHouse has initiated additional pricing actions to mitigate the impact of inflation and expects the benefit of these actions will be reflected in the results of the second half of 2021.

TreeHouse is providing the following guidance ranges on a continuing operations basis for the second quarter:

  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $0.20 to $0.30
  • Reported net sales between $1.02 and $1.07 billion
  • Interest expense between $18 and $19 million
  • Adjusted effective tax rate between 25% and 27%

The Company is not able to reconcile prospective adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations and adjusted effective tax rate (Non-GAAP) to the most comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable effort due to the inherent uncertainty and difficulty of predicting the occurrence, financial impact, and timing of certain items impacting GAAP results. These items include, but are not limited to, mark-to-market adjustments of derivative contracts, foreign currency exchange on the re-measurement of intercompany notes, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, or other non-recurring events or transactions that may significantly affect reported GAAP results.

FIRST QUARTER 2021 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net sales for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $1,057.3 million compared to $1,084.9 million for the same period last year, a decrease of 2.5%. The change in net sales from 2020 to 2021 was due to the following:

%

Organic net sales decreased 5.0% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 2020 driven by:

  • Volume/mix excluding acquisitions and divestitures was unfavorable 4.7% year-over-year primarily due to decreased retail demand as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was partially offset by distribution gains which outpaced distribution losses.
  • Pricing was slightly unfavorable driven by the carryover impact of prior year pricing adjustments.

Additionally, lower volume/mix related to the divestiture of the two In-Store Bakery facilities was unfavorable 1.7%. This was more than offset by the favorable impact of the inclusion of the business from the pasta acquisition of 3.8% and favorable foreign exchange of 0.4% resulting in a year-over-year decrease in reported net sales of 2.5%.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 17.1% in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 18.0% in the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of 0.9 percentage points. The decrease is primarily due to lower volume from reduced COVID-19 pandemic demand, commodity inflation, and incremental costs incurred in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including increased production shifts, supplemental pay, protective equipment for employees, and additional sanitation measures. This was partially offset by increased volume from the inclusion of the business from the pasta acquisition and favorable channel mix.

Total operating expenses as a percentage of net sales were 16.0% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 15.2% in the first quarter of 2020, an increase of 0.8 percentage points. The increase is primarily attributable to integration costs associated with the recent pasta acquisition, higher freight costs due to reduced market capacity and an increase in spot market usage, and professional services fees related to shareholder activism. This was partially offset by lower employee incentive compensation expense.

Total other expense decreased by $92.4 million to $10.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $103.2 million in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease was primarily related to favorable non-cash mark-to-market impacts from hedging activities, driven by interest rate swaps and commodity contracts, and favorable currency exchange rate impacts between the U.S. and Canada compared to unfavorable mark-to-market and currency exchange impacts in the prior year. This was partially offset by a loss on extinguishment of debt.

Income taxes were recognized at an effective rate of (100.0)% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to 55.1% recognized in the first quarter of 2020. The change in the Company's effective tax rate is primarily the result of benefits recognized in 2020 due to the enactment of the CARES Act, a change in the amount of valuation allowance recorded against certain deferred tax assets, and an increase in the amount of tax deductible stock based compensation in 2021.

Net income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.4 million, compared to a $32.8 million net loss for the same period of the previous year. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $106.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, a 0.4% decrease compared to the first quarter of 2020. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to decreased retail demand as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and higher freight costs due to reduced market capacity and an increase in spot market usage. This was mostly offset by increased volume from the inclusion of the business from the pasta acquisition, favorable channel mix, mark-to-market gains on investments, and lower employee incentive compensation expense.

Net income from discontinued operations decreased $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. The decrease is primarily related to lower Ready-to-eat Cereal volume due to decreased retail demand as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cash used in operating activities of continuing operations was $5.5 million in the first three months of 2021 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $68.5 million in the first three months of 2020, a decrease of $74.0 million. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower cash earnings, slower inventory turnover as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, and increased inventory levels to improve service. This was partially offset by higher usage of the receivables sales program.

The Company's three months 2021 and 2020 results included certain items noted below that, in management's judgment, affect the comparability of earnings period-over-period.

Meal Preparation

Net sales in the Meal Preparation segment increased $4.9 million, or 0.7%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. The change in net sales was primarily driven by the favorable impact of the inclusion of the business from the pasta acquisition and distribution gains that outpaced distribution losses. This was partially offset by decreased retail demand as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organic net sales in the Meal Preparation segment decreased by 5.7% year-over-year.

Direct operating income as a percentage of net sales decreased 0.9 percentage points in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. This decrease was due to lower volume from reduced COVID-19 pandemic demand, increased operational costs as a result of severe winter weather in certain regions of the U.S., commodity inflation, and higher freight costs due to reduced market capacity and an increase in spot market usage. This was partially offset by increased volume from the inclusion of the business from the pasta acquisition and favorable channel mix.

Snacking & Beverages

Net sales in the Snacking & Beverages segment decreased $32.5 million, or 7.9%, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. The change in net sales was due to decreased retail demand as a result of lapping consumer pantry stocking in March 2020 from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic and lower volume/mix due to divestitures. This was partially offset by distribution gains which outpaced distribution losses and innovation with new items. Organic net sales in the Snacking & Beverages segment decreased 3.9% year-over-year.

Direct operating income as a percentage of net sales decreased 0.7 percentage points in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. The decrease was due to lower volume from reduced COVID-19 pandemic demand and higher freight costs due to reduced market capacity and an increase in spot market usage.

CONFERENCE CALL WEBCAST

A webcast to discuss the Company's first quarter earnings will be held at 8:30 a.m. (Eastern Time) today. The live audio webcast and a supporting slide deck will be available on the Company's website at www.treehousefoods.com/investors/investor-overview/default.aspx

ACQUISITION

On December 11, 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of the majority of the U.S. branded pasta portfolio as well as a manufacturing facility in St. Louis, Missouri of Riviana Foods, Inc. ("Riviana Foods"), a subsidiary of Ebro Foods, S.A. ("Ebro Foods"). The pasta acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting and the results of operations were included in our Consolidated Financial Statements from the date of acquisition in the Meal Preparation segment.

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

Beginning in the third quarter of 2019, the Company determined that its Ready-to-eat Cereal business met the discontinued operations criteria and, as such, the business has been excluded from continuing operations and segment results for all periods presented.

DIVESTITURE

On January 10, 2020, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell two of its In-Store Bakery facilities located in Fridley, Minnesota and Lodi, California. These two facilities were included within the Snacking & Beverages reporting segment. On April 17, 2020, the Company completed the sale of these facilities.

COMPARISON OF ADJUSTED INFORMATION TO GAAP INFORMATION

The Company has included in this release measures of financial performance that are not defined by GAAP ("Non-GAAP"). A Non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss), Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders' Equity, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The Company believes these measures provide useful information to the users of the financial statements as we also have included these measures in other communications and publications.

For each of these Non-GAAP financial measures, the Company provides a reconciliation between the most directly comparable GAAP measure and the Non-GAAP measure, an explanation of why management believes the Non-GAAP measure provides useful information to financial statement users, and any additional purposes for which management uses the Non-GAAP measure. This Non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information for the financial statement users and is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. These Non-GAAP measures may be different from similar measures used by other companies.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales is defined as net sales excluding the impacts of SKU rationalization, the net sales associated with the pasta acquisition from Riviana Foods, foreign currency, and the net sales associated with the divestiture of the In-Store Bakery facilities, which closed on April 17, 2020. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's sales between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management.

Adjusted Gross Profit Margin

Adjusted gross profit margin is defined as gross profit margin adjusted for items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of gross profit between periods and allows the reader to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. As the Company cannot predict the timing and amount of charges that include, but are not limited to, items such as growth, reinvestment, and restructuring programs, changes in regulatory compliance, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other items that may arise from time to time that would impact comparability, management does not consider these costs when evaluating the Company's performance. The reconciliation of the GAAP measure of gross profit as presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, excluding certain items affecting comparability, to adjusted gross profit margin is presented below.

Adjusted Effective Tax Rate, Adjusting for Certain Items Affecting Comparability

Adjusted effective tax rate represents the GAAP effective tax rate adjusted to exclude the effect of items excluded from adjusted net income, such as growth, reinvestment, and restructuring programs and mark-to-market impacts. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful, consistent comparisons of the Company's effective tax rate and to view the Company's effective tax rate from the same perspective as Company management.

Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share from Continuing Operations, Adjusting for Certain Items Affecting Comparability

Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations ("adjusted diluted EPS") reflects adjustments to GAAP earnings (loss) per diluted share from continuing operations to identify items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's earnings performance between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. As the Company cannot predict the timing and amount of charges that include, but are not limited to, items such as acquisition, integration, divestiture, and related costs, mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts, foreign currency exchange impact on the re-measurement of intercompany notes, growth, reinvestment, and restructuring programs, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other items that may arise from time to time that would impact comparability, management does not consider these costs when evaluating the Company's performance, when making decisions regarding the allocation of resources, in determining incentive compensation, or in determining earnings estimates. The reconciliation of the GAAP measure of diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations as presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, excluding certain items affecting comparability, to adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is presented above.

Adjusted Net Income from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBIT from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations, Adjusted Net Income Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBIT Margin from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusting for Certain Items Affecting Comparability

Adjusted net income from continuing operations represents GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations adjusted for items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods as outlined in the adjusted diluted EPS section above. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's earnings performance between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. This measure is also used as a component of the Board of Directors' measurement of the Company's performance for incentive compensation purposes and is the basis of calculating the adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations metric outlined above.

Adjusted EBIT from continuing operations represents adjusted net income from continuing operations before interest expense, interest income, and income tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations represents adjusted EBIT from continuing operations before depreciation and amortization expense and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Effective January 1, 2021, non-cash stock-based compensation expense was added as an adjustment to our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA in order to better reflect our core operating performance. Prior period amounts have been recast to conform to this presentation. Adjusted EBIT from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations are performance measures commonly used by management to assess operating performance, and the Company believes they are commonly reported and widely used by investors and other interested parties as a measure of a company's operating performance between periods.

Adjusted net income margin from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT margin from continuing operations and adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations are calculated as the respective metric defined above as a percentage of net sales as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations adjusted for items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods as outlined in the adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations section above.

A full reconciliation between the relevant GAAP measure of reported net income (loss) from continuing operations for the three month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 calculated according to GAAP, adjusted net income from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT from continuing operations, and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is presented in the attached tables. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding adjusted items in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not feasible.

Free Cash Flow from Continuing Operations

In addition to measuring the Company's cash flow generation and usage based upon the operating, investing, and financing classifications included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, we also measure free cash flow from continuing operations, which represents net cash (used in) provided by operating activities from continuing operations less capital expenditures. The Company believes free cash flow is an important measure of operating performance because it provides management and investors a measure of cash generated from operations that is available for mandatory payment obligations and investment opportunities such as funding acquisitions, repaying debt, repurchasing outstanding senior debt, and repurchasing common stock. A reconciliation between the relevant GAAP measure of cash (used in) provided by operating activities from continuing operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 calculated according to GAAP and free cash flow from continuing operations is presented in the attached tables.
