The J.M. Smucker Co. Announces Fiscal 2023 First Quarter Results

ORRVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The J.M. Smucker Co. (NYSE: SJM) today announced results for the first quarter ended July 31, 2022, of its 2023 fiscal year. Financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 reflect the divestitures of the natural beverage and grains businesses on January 31, 2022, and the private label dry pet food business on December 1, 2021. All comparisons are to the first quarter of the prior fiscal year, unless otherwise noted.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • Net sales increased $15.0 million, or 1 percent. Net sales excluding divestitures and foreign currency exchange increased 4 percent. Net sales reflect a 9 percent unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall.
  • Net income per diluted share was $1.03. Adjusted earnings per share was $1.67, a decrease of 12 percent, primarily as a result of the Jif® peanut butter product recall.
  • Cash used for operations was $39.0 million, a change of 128 percent. Free cash flow was $(127.3) million, compared to $69.8 million in the prior year.
  • The Company increased its full-year fiscal 2023 financial outlook for net sales, adjusted earnings per share and free cash flow.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"Our first quarter results reflect a strong start to the fiscal year, demonstrating our operational excellence and  strength of our strategy. Our teams have done outstanding work to manage headwinds from cost inflation, industry-wide supply chain challenges, and the Jif® peanut butter recall," said Mark Smucker, Chair of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We delivered another quarter that exceeded our expectations, as consumers' demand for our iconic brands continued in a rising cost environment, driving robust organic top-line growth for our key focus platforms of pet, coffee, and snacking."

"Due to the better-than-expected first quarter results and sustained momentum for our trusted brands, we are  raising our net sales, adjusted earnings per share, and free cash flow expectations for this fiscal year. In the months ahead, we will sustain investment in our growth platforms including the Milk-Bone®, Dunkin'®, and Smucker's® Uncrustables® brands. We remain confident in our ability to drive long-term growth and shareholder value creation through the current dynamic operating environment."

Net Sales

Net sales increased 1 percent, including a 9 percent unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. Excluding noncomparable net sales in the prior year of $58.5 million for the divested businesses, as well as $4.4 million of unfavorable foreign currency exchange, net sales increased $77.9 million, or 4 percent.

The increase in comparable net sales was primarily driven by a 14 percentage point increase from net price realization, primarily reflecting list price increases for the U.S. Retail Coffee, U.S. Retail Pet Foods, and International and Away from Home businesses, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of customer returns and fees related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. The favorable net price realization was partially offset by a 9 percentage point decrease from volume/mix, primarily due to manufacturing downtime related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall and declines for mainstream roast and ground coffee.

Operating Income

Gross profit decreased $86.9 million, or 14 percent, including an unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. The decrease also reflects the lower contribution from volume/mix, primarily due to manufacturing downtime related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall, unsaleable inventory related to the recall, and the noncomparable impact of the divested natural beverage and grains and private label dry pet food businesses. Higher costs, primarily driven by increased commodity and ingredient, manufacturing and packaging costs, were offset by higher net price realization, inclusive of the unfavorable impact to net price realization from customer returns and fees related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. Operating income decreased $79.7 million, or 31 percent, reflecting the decrease in gross profit and a $19.8 million increase in selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses, partially offset by an anticipated insurance recovery related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall.

Adjusted gross profit decreased $58.8 million, or 9 percent, including an unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall. The difference between adjusted gross profit and generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") results reflects the exclusion of the change in net cumulative unallocated derivative gains and losses and special project costs. Adjusted operating income decreased $53.4 million, or 17 percent, further reflecting the exclusion of amortization, gain on divestiture, and other special project costs.

Interest Expense, Other Income (Expense), and Income Taxes

Net interest expense decreased $4.0 million, primarily due to the prepayment of Senior Notes in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year, partially offset by increased debt outstanding as compared to prior year.

Net other income increased $11.6 million, due to a net loss on the prepayment of Senior Notes and a settlement loss related to a defined benefit pension plan in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year.

The effective income tax rate was 22.2 percent compared to 25.0 percent in the prior year, reflecting the favorable deferred tax benefit of a state income tax rate reduction enacted in the quarter. The adjusted effective income tax rate was 23.0 percent, compared to 23.6 percent in the prior year.

Cash Flow and Debt

Cash used for operating activities was $39.0 million, compared to a cash provided of $137.8 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting a $70.0 million contribution to our U.S. qualified defined benefit pension plans this quarter, lower net income adjusted for noncash items in the current year, and an increase in cash required to fund working capital. Free cash flow was $(127.3) million, compared to $69.8 million in the prior year, reflecting the decrease in cash provided by operating activities and a $20.3 million increase in capital expenditures. Net debt borrowings in the quarter totaled $207.0 million.

Ongoing cost inflation, volatility in supply chains and the overall macroeconomic environment 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, including the potential impact to volume due to recent price increases, retailer inventory levels, and broader macroeconomic conditions, could materially impact actual results. In particular, the Jif® peanut butter product recall will continue to impact our financial results for the fiscal year. 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 potential 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 4.0 to 5.0 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 6.5 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 an estimated 2 percent unfavorable impact related to manufacturing downtime and customer returns and fees from the Jif® peanut butter product recall.

Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $8.20 to $8.60, including an estimated $0.80 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 fiscal 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 33.5 to 34.0 percent, 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 $550 million, inclusive of the estimated unfavorable impact related to the Jif® peanut butter product recall, with capital expenditures of $550 million.

Volume/mix was neutral compared to the prior year.

Segment profit decreased $16.3 million, primarily reflecting the impact of the Jif® peanut butter product recall and higher commodity costs, partially offset by higher net pricing.

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 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 facilitate 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 2023 outlook.

(A) We are unable to project derivative gains and losses on a forward-looking basis as these will vary each quarter based on market conditions and derivative positions taken. The change in unallocated derivative gains and losses in the table above reflects the net impact of the gains and losses that have been recognized in our GAAP results and excluded from non-GAAP results as of July 31, 2022, adjusted for the gains and losses expected to be allocated to non-GAAP results for the year ended April 30, 2023.
