TreeHouse Foods, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results


Strong Net Sales Growth of 19.4% Fueled by Pricing of 17.7% and Volume Improvement of 2.1%

Snacking & Beverages Division Delivered 9.0% Volume/Mix Growth in the Quarter, Supported by the Acceleration in Private Label Demand

Raises Fiscal 2022 Net Sales Guidance to Mid-to-High Teens Growth, Largely Driven by Pricing Actions to Recover Inflation; Reaffirms Adjusted EBITDA Guidance

HIGHLIGHTS

OAK BROOK, Ill., Aug. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS) today reported net sales of $1.20 billion which increased 19.4% compared to the second quarter of 2021. Net loss from continuing operations of $(30.6) million compared to $(5.2) million for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") from continuing operations1 was $66.5 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $92.6 million in the second quarter of 2021.

"I'm incredibly proud of our TreeHouse team as we delivered strong top-line results, reflecting the impact of our pricing and our ability to capture incremental volume in Snacking & Beverages," said Steve Oakland, CEO and President. "The value proposition of private label is becoming increasingly important as consumers navigate this inflationary environment. In addition, the breadth of the retail landscape, improved quality and assortment, and our customers' strategic commitment to private label are driving trial and share gains. Our unwavering focus on the customer over the last several years positions us well to build on this momentum to drive growth and profitability." 

"Our second quarter performance was very much in line with expectations," said Patrick O'Donnell, Interim Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer. "We are encouraged by robust demand for private label food and beverage and we are working diligently to improve service and execute pricing to recover inflation. Despite ongoing challenges related to labor and materials availability, we continue to make gradual progress toward improving profitability and believe we are on track to deliver our full-year guidance."

OUTLOOK2

TreeHouse updated its guidance for fiscal 2022 as follows:

With regard to the cadence for the remainder of the year:

________________________________________________

1 Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net (loss) income, free cash flow and organic net sales are non-GAAP financial measures. See "Comparison of Adjusted Information to GAAP Information" for the definitions of the Non-GAAP measures, information concerning certain items affecting comparability, and reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures.

2 The Company is not able to reconcile prospective adjusted EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA margin, which are Non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures without unreasonable effort due to the inherent uncertainty and difficulty of predicting the occurrence, financial impact, and timing of certain items impacting GAAP results. These items include, but are not limited to, mark-to-market adjustments of derivative contracts, foreign currency exchange on the re-measurement of intercompany notes, or other non-recurring events or transactions that may significantly affect reported GAAP results. 

SECOND QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Sales ? Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $1,197.6 million compared to $1,003.2 million for the same period last year, an increase of $194.4 million, or 19.4%. The change in net sales from 2021 to 2022 was due to the following:

The net sales increase of 19.4% was primarily driven by favorable pricing to partially recover commodity and freight cost inflation and increased volume within the Snacking & Beverages segment due to growing demand in private label as the consumer seeks lower priced alternatives in the inflationary environment. This was partially offset by labor and supply chain disruption, which constrained our ability to service demand.

Gross Profit ? Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 13.5% in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 16.6% in the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of 3.1 percentage points. The decrease is primarily due to incremental costs related to labor and supply chain disruption and inbound freight costs and commodity inflation, which was partially offset by favorable pricing actions to recover inflation. The declines were partially offset by favorable category mix, favorable fixed cost overhead absorption due to higher volume, and lower costs for purchases of personal protective equipment for employees and additional sanitation measures.

Total Operating Expenses ? Total operating expenses were $183.6 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $162.0 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $21.6 million. The increase is primarily attributable to professional fees of $19.5 million in connection with its portfolio optimization strategy and higher outbound freight costs of $12.6 million due to freight cost inflation and lower utilization of full truck load shipments due to supply chain disruption. This was partially offset by lower spend in our strategic growth initiatives and other restructuring programs, which consisted mostly of lower severance and professional fees, and lower integration costs associated with the 2020 pasta acquisition.

Total Other Expense (Income) ? Total other expense (income) was $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $10.7 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $1.2 million. The increase was primarily due to unfavorable foreign currency exchange rate impacts between the U.S. and Canadian dollar currency during the second quarter of 2022 when compared to the second quarter of 2021 and a higher average interest rate reflecting the year-over-year increase in LIBOR. This was partially offset by favorable non-cash mark-to-market impacts from hedging activities, largely driven by interest rate swaps.

Income Taxes ? Income taxes were recognized at an effective rate of 8.9% in the second quarter of 2022 compared to 21.2% recognized in the second quarter of 2021. The change in the Company's effective tax rate is primarily driven by the estimated amount of annual pre-tax earnings, a change in the income tax benefit from the release of tax reserves, and withholding taxes accrued in 2022.

Net (Loss) Income from Continuing Operations and Adjusted EBITDA ? Net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2022 was $30.6 million, compared to $5.2 million for the same period of the previous year. Adjusted EBITDA1 from continuing operations was $66.5 million in the second quarter of 2022, a 28.2% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2021. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA was primarily due to incremental costs related to labor and supply chain disruption and commodity and freight cost inflation, which was partially offset by favorable pricing actions to recover inflation. The declines were partially offset by favorable category mix and favorable fixed cost overhead absorption due to higher volume.

Discontinued Operations ? Net income from discontinued operations decreased $12.4 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. The decrease is due to the completion of the sale of the Ready-to-eat Cereal business on June 1, 2021.

Net Cash Used In Operating Activities From Continuing Operations ? Cash used in operating activities from continuing operations was $26.6 million in the first six months of 2022 compared to $44.0 million in the first six months of 2021, a decrease in cash used of $17.4 million. The decrease was primarily attributable to an increase in cash flow from accounts payable due to improved working capital management, lower incentive compensation paid in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2021 based on prior year performance, lower cash paid on interest due to debt refinancing in 2021, and an increase in cash flows from the Receivables Sales Program. This was partially offset by lower cash earnings, which reflect the impact of commodity and freight cost inflation. Working capital changes have been impacted by higher sales as a result of price increases in response to commodity and freight cost inflation, which have increased receivables and inventories. The Company's working capital management emphasis continues to be focused on driving faster collection of receivables and extending vendor terms.

Meal Preparation

Net sales in the Meal Preparation segment increased $118.3 million, or 18.3%, in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by favorable pricing to partially recover commodity and freight cost inflation. This was partially offset by lower volume due to labor and supply chain constraints.

Direct operating income as a percentage of net sales decreased 2.8 percentage points in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. This decrease was primarily due to incremental costs related to labor and supply chain disruption and freight cost and commodity inflation, which was partially offset by favorable pricing actions to recover inflation. These declines were partially offset by favorable category mix and lower marketing spend.

Snacking & Beverages

Net sales in the Snacking & Beverages segment increased $76.1 million, or 21.4%, in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by favorable pricing to partially recover commodity and freight cost inflation. Increasing private label demand resulted in strong category performance as the consumer seeks lower priced alternatives in the inflationary environment. However, volume growth was partially muted due to labor and supply chain disruption.

Direct operating income as a percentage of net sales decreased 1.4 percentage points in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to incremental costs related to labor and supply chain disruption and freight cost and commodity inflation, which was partially offset by favorable pricing actions to recover inflation. The decrease was partially offset by favorable volume, category mix, and favorable fixed cost overhead absorption due to higher volume.

CONFERENCE CALL WEBCAST

A webcast to discuss the Company's second quarter earnings will be held at 8:30 a.m. (Eastern Time) today. The live audio webcast and a supporting slide deck will be available on the Company's website at www.treehousefoods.com/investors/investor-overview/default.aspx

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

Beginning in the third quarter of 2019, the Company determined that its Ready-to-eat Cereal business met the discontinued operations criteria and, as such, the business has been excluded from continuing operations and segment results for all periods presented. On June 1, 2021, the Company completed the sale of its Ready-to-eat Cereal business.

COMPARISON OF ADJUSTED INFORMATION TO GAAP INFORMATION

The Company has included in this release measures of financial performance that are not defined by GAAP ("Non-GAAP"). A Non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss), Condensed Consolidated Statements of Stockholders' Equity, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. The Company believes these measures provide useful information to the users of the financial statements as we also have included these measures in other communications and publications.

For each of these Non-GAAP financial measures, the Company provides a reconciliation between the most directly comparable GAAP measure and the Non-GAAP measure, an explanation of why management believes the Non-GAAP measure provides useful information to financial statement users, and any additional purposes for which management uses the Non-GAAP measure. This Non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information for the financial statement users and is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. These Non-GAAP measures may be different from similar measures used by other companies.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales is defined as net sales excluding the impacts of acquisitions, divestitures, and foreign currency. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's sales between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management.

Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share from Continuing Operations, Adjusting for Certain Items Affecting Comparability

Adjusted (loss) earnings per diluted share from continuing operations ("adjusted diluted EPS") reflects adjustments to GAAP loss per diluted share from continuing operations to identify items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's earnings performance between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. As the Company cannot predict the timing and amount of charges that include, but are not limited to, items such as divestiture, acquisition, integration, and related costs, mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts, foreign currency exchange impact on the re-measurement of intercompany notes, growth, reinvestment, and restructuring programs, impairment of assets, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other items that may arise from time to time that would impact comparability, management does not consider these costs when evaluating the Company's performance, when making decisions regarding the allocation of resources, in determining incentive compensation, or in determining earnings estimates. The reconciliation of the GAAP measure of diluted loss per share from continuing operations as presented in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, excluding certain items affecting comparability, to adjusted diluted (loss) earnings per share from continuing operations is presented below.

Adjusted Net (Loss) Income from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBIT from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBITDA from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBITDAS from Continuing Operations, Adjusted Net (Loss) Income Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBIT Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusted EBITDA Margin from Continuing Operations, and Adjusted EBITDAS Margin from Continuing Operations, Adjusting for Certain Items Affecting Comparability

Adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations represents GAAP net loss from continuing operations as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations adjusted for items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods as outlined in the adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations section above. This information is provided in order to allow investors to make meaningful comparisons of the Company's earnings performance between periods and to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. This measure is also used as a component of the Board of Directors' measurement of the Company's performance for incentive compensation purposes and is the basis of calculating the adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations metric outlined above.

Adjusted EBIT from continuing operations represents adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations before interest expense, interest income, and income tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations represents adjusted net (loss)  income from continuing operations before interest expense, interest income, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDAS from continuing operations represents adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations before non-cash stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBIT from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, and adjusted EBITDAS from continuing operations are performance measures commonly used by management to assess operating performance, and the Company believes they are commonly reported and widely used by investors and other interested parties as a measure of a company's operating performance between periods.

Adjusted net (loss) income margin from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT margin from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA margin from continuing operations, and adjusted EBITDAS margin from continuing operations are calculated as the respective metric defined above as a percentage of net sales as reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations adjusted for items that, in management's judgment, significantly affect the assessment of earnings results between periods as outlined in the adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations section above.

A full reconciliation between the relevant GAAP measure of reported net loss from continuing operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 calculated according to GAAP, adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, and adjusted EBITDAS from continuing operations is presented in the attached tables. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding adjusted items in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is not feasible.

Free Cash Flow from Continuing Operations

In addition to measuring the Company's cash flow generation and usage based upon the operating, investing, and financing classifications included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, we also measure free cash flow from continuing operations, which represents net cash used in operating activities from continuing operations less capital expenditures. The Company believes free cash flow is an important measure of operating performance because it provides management and investors a measure of cash generated from operations that is available for mandatory payment obligations and investment opportunities such as funding acquisitions, repaying debt, repurchasing public debt, and repurchasing common stock. A reconciliation between the relevant GAAP measure of cash used in operating activities from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 calculated according to GAAP and free cash flow from continuing operations is presented in the attached tables.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company entered into transactions that affected the year-over-year comparison of its financial results from continuing operations as follows:

(1)

The Company's growth, reinvestment, and restructuring activities are part of an enterprise-wide transformation to improve long-term growth and profitability for the Company. For the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred growth, reinvestment, and restructuring program costs of approximately $15.6 million and $22.2 million, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred growth, reinvestment, and restructuring program costs of approximately $47.7 million and $41.8 million, respectively. Additionally, the Company recognized other items affecting comparability including regulatory compliance cost reimbursements related to changes in nutrition labeling requirements. There were no other items recognized during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. These other items were approximately $(0.1) million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.



(2)

Divestiture, acquisition, integration, and related costs represent costs associated with completed and potential divestitures, completed and potential acquisitions, the related integration of the acquisitions, and gains or losses on the divestiture of a business.



(3)

The Company incurred fees related to shareholder activism which include directly applicable third-party advisory and professional service fees.



(4)

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company recognized $0.4 million incremental expense for the settlement payment of the $9.0 million accrual related to a litigation matter challenging wage and hour practices at three former manufacturing facilities in California.



(5)

Tax indemnification represents the non-cash write off of indemnification assets that were recorded in connection with acquisitions from prior years. These write-offs arose as a result of the related uncertain tax position being released due to the statute of limitation lapse or settlement with taxing authorities.



(6)

During 2021, the Company incurred incremental expenses directly attributable to our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which included additional protective equipment for employees and additional sanitation measures. These costs were approximately $4.5 million and $13.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively.



(7)

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company incurred a loss on extinguishment of debt totaling $14.4 million, which included a premium of $9.0 million and a write off of deferred financing costs of $5.4 million in connection with the redemption of its 2024 Notes and Credit Agreement refinancing.



(8)

The Company has foreign currency denominated intercompany loans and incurred foreign currency losses of $1.1 million and foreign currency gains of $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, to re-measure the loans at quarter end. For the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred foreign currency gains of $0.9 million and $2.8 million, respectively. These charges are non-cash and the loans are eliminated in consolidation.



(9)

The Company's derivative contracts are marked-to-market each period. The non-cash unrealized changes in fair value  recognized in Other income, net within the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations are treated as Non-GAAP adjustments. As the contracts are settled, realized gains and losses are recognized, and only the mark-to-market impacts are treated as Non-GAAP adjustments.

 

The tax impact on adjusting items is calculated based upon the tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable in the tax jurisdiction of the underlying Non-GAAP adjustments.

The following table reconciles the Company's net loss from continuing operations to adjusted net (loss) income from continuing operations, adjusted EBIT from continuing operations, adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, and adjusted EBITDAS from continuing operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:
