Kraft Heinz Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

August 4, 2021 at 7:00 AM EDT

Maintaining strong net sales growth versus 2019

Effectively managing inflationary pressures

Expecting 2021 financial performance ahead of initial expectations

PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 2021-- The Kraft Heinz Company (Nasdaq: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2021.

"Our second quarter results serve as a strong indicator that our Kraft Heinz team will not only deliver a stronger 2021 than we initially anticipated, but will come out of the global pandemic much stronger than we entered,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Miguel Patricio. “We continue to drive our transformation program forward, modernizing our brands and better connecting with our consumers. And while industry challenges, like cost inflation, certainly remain, the investments we are making in our people, brands, and capabilities are enabling us to leverage our tremendous scale through greater agility and build our advantage in the markets we serve around the world."

Q2 2021 Financial Summary

  • Net sales decreased 0.5 percent versus the year-ago period to $6.6 billion, including a favorable 2.3 percentage point impact from currency and a negative 0.7 percentage point impact from the divestiture of the Company's nuts business, which closed in the second quarter of 2021. Net sales versus the comparable 2019 period increased 3.2 percent, including a favorable 0.9 percentage point impact from currency and a negative 2.7 percentage point impact from divestitures. Organic Net Sales decreased 2.1 percent versus the prior year period, but increased 5.0 percent versus the comparable 2019 period with both comparisons negatively impacted by exiting the McCafé licensing agreement. Pricing was up 1.5 percentage points versus the prior year period with growth across each reporting segment that reflected favorable trade expense timing in the United States as well as higher, inflation-justified pricing in foodservice and retail channels. These gains more than offset the negative impact from restoring more normalized promotional activities versus the year-ago period. Volume/mix declined 3.6 percentage points versus the year-ago period from a combination of extraordinary COVID-19-related retail demand in 2020 and a negative 1.1 percentage point impact from exiting the McCafé licensing agreement. This decline was offset, in part, by a partial recovery in foodservice channels and retail consumption trends that remained well ahead of 2019 levels across all reporting segments.
  • Net income/(loss) increased 98.5 percent versus the year-ago period to a loss of $25 million primarily driven by favorable changes in non-cash impairment charges versus the year-ago period. This was partially offset by a higher effective tax rate versus the prior year period as well as unfavorable changes in interest expense due to one-time debt extinguishment costs. Net income/(loss) decreased 105.7 percent versus the comparable 2019 period. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5.2 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.7 billion and increased 6.6 percent versus the comparable 2019 period. Excluding a favorable 1.8 percentage point impact from currency, year-over-year Adjusted EBITDA benefited from higher pricing, efficiency gains, and favorable overhead costs versus the prior year period. These benefits, however, were more than offset by higher cost inflation, lower shipments, and unfavorable mix versus an exceptionally strong 2020 period.
  • Diluted EPS increased to a loss of $0.02, up 98.5 percent versus the prior year, driven by the net income/(loss) factors discussed above. Adjusted EPS was $0.78, down 2.5 percent versus the prior year, primarily driven by lower Adjusted EBITDA that more than offset lower interest expense and a lower effective tax rate versus the prior year period.
  • Year-to-date net cash provided by operating activities was $2.0 billion, down 8.4 percent versus the year-ago period reflecting a combination of higher cash outflows related to variable compensation, taxes, and promotional activity versus the prior year period. These impacts were partially offset by favorable changes in accounts payable, largely due to purchase timing and favorable payment terms, favorable changes in cash related to commodity margin requirements, and higher year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA versus the year-ago period. Free Cash Flow(1) in the first six months of 2021 was $1.6 billion, down 18.4 percent versus the comparable prior year period due to lower net cash provided by operating activities and higher capital expenditures versus the prior year period.

Outlook

Based on performance to date, while the Company continues to expect it will deliver 2021 Adjusted EBITDA ahead of its strategic plan, it now expects Adjusted EBITDA to be ahead of 2019 as well. The Company views comparison to the 2019 period to be more meaningful than the comparable 2020 period given the exceptional, COVID-19-related consumer demand changes experienced in the 2020 period.

For the third quarter of 2021, the Company currently expects a mid-single-digit percentage increase in Organic Net Sales(2) and a low-single-digit percentage decline in Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA(1)(2) versus the third quarter of 2019. This outlook corresponds to a low-single-digit percentage decline in Organic Net Sales(2) and a low-teens percentage decline in Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA(2) versus the comparable 2020 period.

End Notes

(1)

Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, 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)

Third quarter 2021 guidance for Organic Net Sales and Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA is 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, restructuring expenses, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, certain non-ordinary course legal and regulatory matters, 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.

Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's plans, impacts of accounting standards and guidance, growth, legal matters, taxes, costs and cost savings, impairments, dividends, expectations, investments, innovations, opportunities, capabilities, execution, initiatives, and pipeline.

For additional information on these and other factors that could affect the Company's forward-looking statements, see the Company's risk factors, as they may be amended from time to time, set forth in its filings with the SEC. The Company disclaims and does not undertake any obligation to update, revise, or withdraw 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 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 ("EPS"), net cash provided by/(used for) operating activities, 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 restructuring activities); in addition to these adjustments, the Company excludes, when they occur, the impacts of restructuring activities, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, certain non-ordinary course legal and regulatory matters, and equity award compensation expense (excluding restructuring activities). 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. The Company has revised the definition of Adjusted EBITDA to adjust for the impact of certain legal and regulatory matters arising outside the ordinary course of its business, as management believes such matters, when they occur, 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 restructuring activities, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, certain non-ordinary course legal and regulatory matters, 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 certain significant discrete income tax items (e.g., U.S. and non-U.S. tax reform), 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. The Company has revised the definition of Adjusted EPS to adjust for the impact of certain legal and regulatory matters arising outside the ordinary course of its business and certain significant discrete income tax items beyond U.S. tax reform, as management believes such matters, when they occur, do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations.

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.
