The J. M. Smucker Company Announces Fiscal 2018 Second Quarter Results

ORRVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The J. M. Smucker Company (NYSE: SJM) today announced results for the second quarter ended October 31, 2017, of its 2018 fiscal year.  All comparisons are to the second quarter of the prior fiscal year, unless otherwise noted.  

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • Net sales increased 1 percent, reflecting improved trends from the prior quarter.  
  • Net income per diluted share increased 13 percent to $1.71
  • Adjusted earnings per share was $2.02, a decrease of 1 percent. 
  • Cash provided by operating activities was $130.3 million, compared to $136.4 million in the prior year. 
  • Free cash flow was $69.9 million in the quarter and $304.6 million through the first half of fiscal 2018.  
  • The Company updated its full-year 2018 net sales and earnings outlook.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"We are pleased with our second quarter results, primarily driven by our pet food business and the strong performance of a number of key brands across all our businesses," said Mark Smucker, Chief Executive Officer.  "This included double-digit sales increases for Nature's Recipe® dog food, Dunkin' Donuts® coffee, and Jif® peanut butter.  We also experienced continued strong growth of our brands in e-commerce, as sales in this channel doubled in the quarter for our U.S. retail segments.  We are confident in the ability of our brands to win in the rapidly changing retail environment.  In addition, we remain focused on achieving sustainable cost reductions that support both the bottom-line and fuel investments in future growth."

Net Sales
Net sales increased $9.7 million, or 1 percent.  Net price realization contributed 1 percentage point of growth, driven by higher net pricing for peanut butter and the Smucker's® brand.  Lower volume/mix impacted net sales by 1 percentage point, as declines in the oils and baking categories were partially offset by gains in pet food.  Favorable foreign currency exchange contributed $5.4 million to net sales.    

Operating Income
Gross profit increased $12.1 million, or 2 percent.  A net benefit of higher pricing and costs more than offset lower volume/mix, primarily attributed to the oils and baking categories.  Selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses decreased $2.2 million, driven by incremental synergy realization and the Company's cost savings initiatives.  Operating income increased $27.4 million, or 9 percent, further reflecting a reduction in special project costs. 

On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross profit decreased $11.2 million, or 1 percent, with the primary difference from GAAP results being the exclusion of a $23.9 million favorable change in unallocated derivative gains and losses.  Adjusted operating income decreased $13.0 million, or 3 percent.    

Other
Net interest expense increased $0.6 million.  Income taxes increased $9.0 million.  This was primarily attributed to higher income before income taxes, as the effective tax rate was 33.3 percent in the current year, compared to 33.2 percent in the prior year.  

FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK

The Company updated its full-year fiscal 2018 guidance as summarized below:



Current

Adjusted earnings per share

$7.75 - $7.90

Free cash flow

Capital expenditures

$310 million


Effective tax rate

32.5% - 33.0%

32.5% - 33.0%

 

Net sales are expected to be in the range of flat to down slightly, compared to the prior year.  Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $7.75 to $7.90, based on 113.6 million shares outstanding.  The change in earnings guidance further reflects anticipated freight cost increases for the remainder of the fiscal year, driven by industry-wide headwinds.  The above guidance excludes any potential impact following completion of the Company's previously announced definitive agreement to acquire the Wesson® oil brand from Conagra Brands, Inc., which is pending regulatory approval.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit, operating income, income, and 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 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 amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets, 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 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.  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 2018 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.
