The J. M. Smucker Company Announces Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Results

ORRVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The J. M. Smucker Company (NYSE: SJM) today announced results for the second quarter ended October 31, 2016, of its 2017 fiscal year.  All comparisons are to the second quarter of the prior fiscal year, unless otherwise noted.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • Net sales decreased 8 percent.  Excluding the noncomparable divested U.S. canned milk business, net sales decreased 5 percent.   
  • Net income per diluted share increased 3 percent to $1.52
  • Adjusted earnings per share was $2.05, an increase of 7 percent, reflecting incremental synergy realization, a lower tax rate, and fewer shares outstanding.
  • Incremental synergy realization was $28.5 million in the second quarter and $60.5 million through the first half of fiscal 2017.  The Company remains on track to recognize $100 million of incremental synergies in fiscal 2017.
  • Cash provided by operating activities was $136.4 million in the second quarter.  Free cash flow was $102.6 million in the quarter and $291.3 million through the first half of fiscal 2017.  
  • The Company maintained its full-year fiscal 2017 net sales, earnings, and free cash flow outlook.  Adjusted earnings per share are expected to range from $7.60 to $7.75.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"We delivered record adjusted earnings per share for the fiscal second quarter," said Mark Smucker, Chief Executive Officer.  "We continue to make significant progress against our current year priorities and long-term goals.  These include achieving sustainable cost reductions that both support the bottom-line and fuel investments in the continued growth of our brands.  As an example, we are excited to announce the launch of Nature's Recipe® premium pet food into grocery and mass merchandise outlets later this fiscal year.  We are aggressively pursuing a variety of growth opportunities and remain confident about enhancing shareholder value."

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND SEGMENT RESULTS

Beginning May 1, 2016, the Company redefined certain non-GAAP measures and modified its segment profit calculation to exclude amortization expense related to intangible assets, including any related impairment charges.  Prior year results have been modified to conform to the new presentation.  Additional information is included in the Company's Form 8-K, dated July 25, 2016.

Results for the three months ended October 31, 2015, include the Company's former U.S. canned milk business, which was divested on December 31, 2015. 

Net Sales
Net sales decreased $163.8 million, including $67.7 million attributed to the divested U.S. canned milk business.  Excluding the noncomparable divested business and foreign currency exchange, net sales decreased $96.2 million, or 5 percent.  This reflected a 3 percentage point decline from volume/mix driven by the U.S. Retail Pet Foods segment and the Folgers® and Jif® brands.  Net price realization was also lower, which was mostly attributed to coffee.

Operating Income
Gross profit decreased $44.4 million, or 6 percent, driven by volume/mix and the loss of U.S. canned milk profits.  The impact of lower net price realization was offset by a reduction in commodity and manufacturing overhead costs and incremental synergy realization.  Selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses decreased $26.7 million, or 7 percent, primarily driven by synergy realization.  Operating income decreased $10.5 million, or 3 percent.  

On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross profit decreased $26.9 million, or 3 percent, with the primary difference from GAAP results being the exclusion of a $20.2 million unfavorable change in unallocated derivative gains and losses.  With the decrease in SD&A expenses, adjusted operating income increased $1.8 million.

Other
Net interest expense decreased $1.6 million, due to reduced debt levels.  Income taxes decreased $5.4 million attributed to a lower effective tax rate of 33.2 percent, compared to 34.7 percent in the prior year.  

Cash provided by operating activities was $136.4 million.  This compared to $275.5 million in the prior year, which benefited from the Company's working capital initiatives.  

FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK

The Company updated its full-year fiscal 2017 guidance as summarized below:

Net sales guidance is unchanged, with net sales expected to decrease in the range of 2 percent to 3 percent from fiscal 2016, reflecting the U.S. canned milk divestiture.  Excluding the impact of the divestiture, net sales are expected to range from flat to down 1 percent.  Adjusted earnings per share is also unchanged and expected to range from $7.60 to $7.75, based on 116.6 million shares outstanding, with a bias toward the middle to high end of the range.  The Company reduced its effective tax rate guidance by 50 basis points to 33.0 percent.  Included in earnings guidance is $100 million of incremental synergies in fiscal 2017.

Segment net sales decreased $34.3 million, driven by lower net price realization, which was primarily attributed to the impact of the 6 percent list price decline taken across most of the coffee portfolio effective at the beginning of the fiscal year.  Volume/mix reduced net sales by 1 percent as lower Folgers® roast and ground volume was partially offset by gains for the Dunkin' Donuts® and Café Bustelo® brands.  Segment profit increased $6.1 million, as lower commodity and manufacturing overhead costs more than offset the impact of lower net pricing, volume/mix, and increased marketing expense.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding the noncomparable impact of the divestiture and foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit, operating income, income, and earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA"); and free cash flow, as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally.  The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors because they are the measures used to evaluate performance on a comparable year-over-year basis.  Non-GAAP profit measures exclude certain items affecting comparability which include merger and integration and restructuring costs ("special project costs") and unallocated gains and losses on commodity and foreign currency exchange derivatives ("unallocated derivative gains and losses").  The special project costs relate to specific merger and integration and restructuring projects, and the unallocated derivative gains and losses reflect the changes in fair value of the Company's commodity and foreign currency exchange contracts.  Beginning May 1, 2016, the Company redefined the non-GAAP measures to also exclude amortization expense related to intangible assets, including any related impairment charges ("amortization"), and has modified prior year results to conform to the new definition.  The Company believes that excluding amortization in its non-GAAP measures is more reflective of the Company's operating performance and the way in which the Company manages its business, as amortization is a non-cash expense and can be significantly affected by the timing and size of acquisitions.  These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("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 2017 outlook.  As the amount of unallocated derivative gains and losses varies depending on market conditions and levels of derivative transactions with respect to a particular fiscal year, it is not determinable on a forward-looking basis and no guidance has been provided.
