PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2020-- The Kraft Heinz Company (Nasdaq: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2020 that reflected net sales growth across all six Consumer Platforms due to sustained at-home consumption momentum.

“The continuation of our strong growth into the third quarter is a reflection of the agility we are creating as an organization and because of that, we are raising our outlook for the full year,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Miguel Patricio. “We are building momentum, and we are confidently optimistic about our near-term performance. We are heading into 2021 with our new operating model fully implemented, our platform strategy coming to life in the marketplace, and our growth investments ramping up. And although there are multiple future scenarios we must plan for and manage against, we are in a strong position to both accelerate and exceed the strategic plan we finalized earlier this year.”

Q3 2020 Financial Summary

  • Net sales increased 6.0 percent versus the year-ago period to $6.4 billion, including an unfavorable 0.3 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales increased 6.3 percent despite a negative 1.2 percentage point impact from exiting the McCafé licensing agreement. Pricing was up 3.7 percentage points versus the prior year period, with positive pricing in each business segment. Higher pricing primarily resulted from reduced promotional activity compared to the year-ago period, with gains also reflecting planned pricing actions in select categories and markets and pricing to offset dairy inflation. Volume/mix was up 2.6 percentage points versus the year-ago period, driven by strong growth in retail, e-commerce, and club channels supported by continued growth of at-home consumption due, in part, to the COVID-19 pandemic. This growth more than offset lower but improving foodservice sales, and the negative impact from exiting the McCafé licensing agreement.
  • Net income attributable to common shareholders decreased 33.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $597 million and Diluted EPS decreased to $0.49, down 33.8 percent versus the prior year driven by charges related to the pending Cheese Transaction(2) in the current period and a gain on sale of the Canadian natural cheese business in the year-ago period.
  • Adjusted EPS increased to $0.70, up 1.4 percent versus the prior year as Adjusted EBITDA growth more than offset a higher effective tax rate, unfavorable changes in other income, and higher non-cash equity award compensation expenses versus the year-ago period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 13.5 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.7 billion, including an unfavorable 0.1 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, Adjusted EBITDA growth was driven by pricing gains, volume growth, and favorable mix versus the year-ago period, as well as procurement savings in the United States. This growth more than offset higher variable compensation, unfavorable key commodity(5) costs, specifically in dairy, as well as increased marketing investment in the United States and incremental COVID-19-related operating expenses globally.
  • Year-to-date net cash provided by operating activities increased to $3.3 billion, up 67.0% versus the comparable prior year period, primarily driven by Adjusted EBITDA growth, reduced cash outflows resulting from lower payments related to the timing of promotional activity, and favorable changes in inventory, primarily due to reduced inventory levels from COVID-19-related demand. Free Cash Flow(1) for the first nine months of 2020 increased to $2.9 billion, up 107.8% versus the comparable prior year period, from a combination of the previously mentioned items and lower capital expenditures versus the prior year period.

Outlook

Based on performance to date, the Company believes mid-single-digit Organic Net Sales(3) growth and high-single-digit Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA(3) growth versus the prior year period are reasonable expectations for fourth-quarter performance. This would result in mid-single-digit Organic Net Sales(3) growth and high-single-digit Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA(3) growth for the full year.

End Notes

(1)

Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, and Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see discussion of non-GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations at the end of this press release for more information.

(2)

In September 2020, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell certain assets in the Company’s global cheese businesses, as well as to license certain trademarks, for total consideration of approximately $3.3 billion, including $3.2 billion of cash consideration (the “Cheese Transaction”). The Company has allocated $1.5 billion of the total consideration to perpetual licenses that will be granted to the buyer for the Kraft and Velveeta brands. The Company has allocated the remainder of the total consideration, currently $1.8 billion, to the net assets to be transferred (the “Disposal Group”). The Company determined that the Disposal Group, which included allocated goodwill, had an aggregate carrying amount above its $1.8 billion estimated fair value. Accordingly, a non-cash impairment loss of $300 million was recorded in the third quarter of 2020. Upon closing of the Cheese Transaction, we may recognize a gain or loss, depending on a number of factors, including changes in the fair values of certain assets in the Disposal Group. Additionally, the license income related to the Kraft and Velveeta brands will be recognized in the future as a reduction to SG&A.

(3)

Fourth quarter and 2020 full year guidance for Organic Net Sales and Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA are provided on a non-GAAP basis only because certain information necessary to calculate the most comparable GAAP measure is unavailable due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence and the future financial statement impact of such items impacting comparability, including, but not limited to, the impact of currency, acquisitions and divestitures, integration and restructuring expenses, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, and equity award compensation expense, among other items. Therefore, as a result of the uncertainty and variability of the nature and amount of future adjustments, which could be significant, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures without unreasonable effort.

(4)

In the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s internal reporting and reportable segments changed. The Puerto Rico business was moved from the Latin America zone to the United States zone to consolidate and streamline the management of the Company's product categories and supply chain. The Company also combined its Europe, Middle East, and Africa (“EMEA”), Latin America, and Asia Pacific (“APAC”) zones to form the International zone. Therefore, effective in the first quarter of 2020, the Company manages and reports its operating results through three reportable segments defined by geographic region: United States, International, and Canada. The Company has reflected these changes in all historical periods presented.

(5)

The Company's key commodities in the United States and Canada are dairy, meat, coffee and nuts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures provided should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) that are presented in this press release.

To supplement the financial information provided, the Company has presented Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, and Free Cash Flow which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. 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 (i.e., Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, and Free Cash Flow) 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 currency, acquisitions and 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 highly inflationary subsidiaries, 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), provision for/(benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (excluding integration and restructuring expenses); in addition to these adjustments, the Company excludes, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment 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 highly inflationary subsidiaries, for which it calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Adjusted EBITDA and Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA are tools 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, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, losses/(gains) on the sale of a business, other losses/(gains) related to acquisitions and divestitures (e.g., tax and hedging impacts), nonmonetary currency devaluation (e.g., remeasurement gains and losses), debt prepayment and extinguishment costs, and U.S. Tax Reform discrete income tax expense/(benefit), 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.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by/(used for) operating activities less capital expenditures. The Company believes Free Cash Flow provides a measure of the Company's core operating performance, the cash-generating capabilities of the Company's business operations, and is one factor used in determining the amount of cash available for debt repayments, dividends, acquisitions, share repurchases, and other corporate purposes. The use of this non-GAAP measure does not imply or represent the residual cash flow for discretionary expenditures since the Company has certain non-discretionary obligations such as debt service that are not deducted from the measure.

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