KRAFT HEINZ REPORTS
FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2018 RESULTS

Q4 net sales increased 0.7%; Organic Net Sales(1) increased 2.4%
Q4 diluted earnings per share were $(10.34); Adjusted EPS(1) was $0.84

PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO - February 21, 2019 - The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported fourth quarter and full year 2018 financial results reflecting solid organic net sales growth in all segments that was more than offset by higher operating costs, as well as non-cash impairment charges related to goodwill and intangible assets.

“Our fourth quarter and full year 2018 results reflect our commitment to re-establish commercial growth of our iconic brands, turn around consumption trends in several key categories, and expand into new category and geographic whitespaces," said Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees. "We are pleased with those actions, the returns on our investments, and the momentum built for 2019. However, profitability fell short of our expectations due to a combination of unanticipated cost inflation and lower-than-planned savings. Going forward, our global focus will remain on leveraging our in-house capabilities, developing our talented people, and delivering top-tier growth at industry-leading margins."

Net sales were $6.9 billion, up 0.7 percent versus the year-ago period, including an unfavorable 2.2 percentage point impact from currency and a net 0.5 percentage point benefit from acquisitions and divestitures. Organic Net Sales(1) increased 2.4 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing was down 1.6 percentage points, as increased promotional activity and pricing to reflect lower key commodity(2) costs in North America, particularly the United States, more than offset higher pricing in EMEA and Rest of World markets. Volume/mix increased 4.0 percentage points, driven by a combination of strong


1


consumption gains in North America and condiments and sauces growth across Latin America, North America, and EMEA.
During the fourth quarter, as part of the Company's normal quarterly reporting procedures and planning processes, the Company concluded that, based on several factors that developed during the fourth quarter, the fair values of certain goodwill and intangible assets were below their carrying amounts. As a result, the Company recorded non-cash impairment charges of $15.4 billion to lower the carrying amount of goodwill in certain reporting units, primarily U.S. Refrigerated and Canada Retail, and certain intangible assets, primarily the Kraft and Oscar Mayer trademarks. These charges resulted in a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $12.6 billion and diluted loss per share of $10.34.
Adjusted EBITDA decreased 13.9 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.7 billion, including a negative 2.4 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, lower Adjusted EBITDA reflected a decline in the United States that more than offset Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA(1) growth in all other business segments. Adjusted EPS decreased 6.7 percent to $0.84, as lower Adjusted EBITDA, higher depreciation and amortization expenses, as well as higher interest expense more than offset lower taxes on adjusted earnings in the current period.

United States net sales were $4.8 billion, up 1.1 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing was 2.8 percentage points lower, driven by a combination of commodity-driven pricing actions in dairy and coffee, increased promotional activity in ready-to-drink beverages and natural cheese, as well as timing of promotional activity versus the prior year in Lunchables. Volume/mix increased 3.9 percentage points due to gains across a majority of categories including nuts, meats, refrigerated meal combinations, cream cheese, and frozen potatoes.
United States Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 16.3 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.3 billion, as the benefits from favorable key commodity costs and volume/mix growth were more than offset by a combination of lower pricing, higher costs net of savings, and investments to build strategic capabilities.

Canada net sales were $600 million, increasing 1.8 percent versus the year-ago period, despite a negative 4.2 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales were up 6.0 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing declined 1.7 percentage points as increased in-store activity behind cheese, as well as macaroni and cheese, was partially offset by higher foodservice pricing. Volume/mix increased 7.7 percentage points, driven by a combination of consumption-led growth across several categories, including cheese, as well as favorable comparisons with retailer inventory de-stocking that occurred in the prior year period.
Canada Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 1.1 percent versus the year-ago period to $163 million, despite a negative 4.4 percentage point impact from currency, as volume/mix gains and lower input costs were partially offset by lower pricing and higher overhead costs.

Pricing was up 2.6 percentage points, primarily due to favorable timing of promotional activity versus the prior year in the UK as well as in the Middle East and Africa that was partially offset by lower pricing in Eastern Europe.

EMEA Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 2.6 percent versus the year-ago period to $171 million, including a negative 4.3 percentage point impact from currency. Excluding the impact of currency, Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 1.7 percentage points, primarily reflecting gains from Organic Net Sales growth that were partially offset by higher overhead costs.

Pricing increased 1.8 percentage points, primarily driven by highly inflationary environments in certain markets within Latin America that more than offset lower pricing in China. Volume/mix

Supplemental Information
The Company received a subpoena in October 2018 from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") associated with an investigation into the Company's procurement area, more specifically the Company's accounting policies, procedures, and internal controls related to its procurement function, including, but not limited to, agreements, side agreements, and changes or modifications to its agreements with its vendors.
Following this initial SEC document request, the Company together with external counsel launched an investigation into the procurement area. In the fourth quarter of 2018, as a result of findings from the investigation, the Company recorded a $25 million increase to costs of products sold as an out of period correction as the Company determined the amounts were immaterial to the fourth quarter of 2018 and its previously reported 2018 and 2017 interim and year to date periods. Additionally, the Company is in the process of implementing certain improvements to its internal controls to mitigate the likelihood of this occurring in the future and has taken other remedial measures. The Company continues to cooperate fully with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. 
At this time, the Company does not expect the matters subject to the investigation to be material to its current period or any prior period financial statements.
End Notes
(1)
Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS 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)
The Company's key commodities in the United States and Canada are dairy, meat, coffee and nuts.
(3)
In the first quarter of the Company's fiscal year 2018, the Company reorganized certain of its international businesses to better align the Company's global geographies. As a result, Middle East and Africa businesses were moved from the historical Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (“AMEA”) operating segment into the historical Europe reportable segment, forming the new Europe, Middle East, and Africa (“EMEA”) reportable segment. The remaining businesses from the AMEA operating segment became the Asia Pacific (“APAC”) operating segment. This change has been reflected in all historical periods presented.
(4)
Rest of World comprises two operating segments: Latin America and APAC.

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
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, the Company has presented Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS, 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, and Adjusted EPS) 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 Venezuela, 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, 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, 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), 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, 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), 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.
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.
