First Quarter 2021 Net Revenues Increased 11% Year-Over-Year to $108.2 Million

Gross Profit Improved Sequentially to $32.7 Million or 30.2% of Net Revenues

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) (“Beyond Meat” or “the Company”), a leader in plant-based meat, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended April 3, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights1

  • Net revenues were $108.2 million, an increase of 11.4% year-over-year.

  • Gross profit was $32.7 million, or gross margin of 30.2% of net revenues.

  • Net loss was $27.3 million, or $0.43 per common share; Adjusted net loss was $26.2 million, or $0.42 per common share, reflecting exclusion of expenses attributable to early debt extinguishment.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $10.8 million, or -10.0% of net revenues.

Beyond Meat President and CEO Ethan Brown commented, "We were pleased to see sequential improvement in our revenue growth and gross margin performance despite continued COVID-19 pressure on our foodservice business. Throughout the first quarter, we remained highly focused on investing in and building out production infrastructure in the U.S., the EU, and China; new product development and commercialization for our strategic QSR customers and retail markets; and research and development in service to our core growth levers of taste, nutrition, and cost."

Brown added, "As I look at the foundation we are putting in place, I have never been more optimistic about Beyond Meat's future as a significant and enduring global protein company. More near-term, we are cautiously returning to the practice of issuing guidance, starting with net revenues, as we have recently begun to see a slow thaw occurring within foodservice both domestically and in certain international markets."

First Quarter 2021

Net revenues increased 11.4% to $108.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $97.1 million in the year-ago period. Growth in net revenues was primarily due to increased retail channel sales, partially offset by a decline in foodservice channel sales due to the continued impact of COVID-19 on foodservice demand levels. Growth in volume sold during the first quarter of 2021 was partially offset by lower net price per pound driven by the Company’s strategic investments in promotional activity, and product mix shifts as larger-pack items carrying a lower net price per unit volume accounted for a greater proportion of the Company's retail net revenues compared to the year-ago period.

Gross profit was $32.7 million, or gross margin of 30.2% of net revenues, in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $37.7 million, or gross margin of 38.8% of net revenues, in the year-ago period. The decrease in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to higher transportation and warehousing costs, lower net price realization due to increased trade discounts and changes in product sales mix, higher depreciation and amortization expense primarily attributable to incremental fixed assets associated with the Company's production facilities in Pennsylvania, The Netherlands and China, and increased fixed overhead costs.

Loss from operations in the first quarter of 2021 was $24.6 million compared to income from operations of $1.8 million in the year-ago period. The reduction in income from operations was primarily driven by increased production trial activities, growth in overall headcount levels primarily to support increased innovation capabilities and international growth, higher freight costs included in the Company's selling expenses, and higher share-based compensation expense compared to the year-ago period.

Net loss was $27.3 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to net income of $1.8 million in the year-ago period. Net loss per common share was $0.43 in the first quarter of 2021 compared to net income per common share of $0.03 in the year-ago period. During the first quarter of 2021, net loss included $1.0 million in expenses attributable to the Company's early extinguishment of its revolving credit facility. During the first quarter of 2020, net income included $1.2 million in expenses attributable to COVID-19, specifically related to product donations tied to the Company's COVID-19 relief campaign. Excluding these costs, Adjusted net loss was $26.2 million in the first quarter of 2021, or $0.42 per common share, compared to Adjusted net income of $3.0 million, or $0.05 per common share, in the year-ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $10.8 million, or -10.0% of net revenues, in the first quarter of 2021 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $13.9 million, or 14.3% of net revenues, in the year-ago period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $1.1 billion as of April 3, 2021 and total outstanding debt was $1.1 billion. During the first quarter of 2021, the Company completed a convertible senior notes offering in the aggregate principal amount of $1.15 billion, including a $150.0 million over-allotment option. Net cash used in operating activities was $30.7 million for the three months ended April 3, 2021, compared to $17.2 million for the year-ago period. Capital expenditures totaled $23.4 million for the three months ended April 3, 2021 compared to $12.4 million for the year-ago period. The increase in capital expenditures was primarily due to the Company’s continued investments in production equipment and facilities related to capacity expansion initiatives, mainly in China and the EU.

Update on COVID-19 and 2021 Outlook

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company continues to experience significantly reduced demand in its foodservice channel as decreased foot traffic, streamlined menu offerings and restrictions on foodservice locations’ operating capacity have resulted in closures or meaningfully curtailed operations of many of the Company's foodservice customers. At the same time, the surge in demand from retail customers that characterized the early stages of the pandemic as consumers abruptly shifted towards more at-home consumption has moderated. Given that the ongoing evolution of consumer demand patterns across retail and foodservice channels has significantly increased the difficulty of forecasting the Company's customer demand levels, management believes it cannot provide full-year guidance for 2021 with reasonable certainty. However, in order to furnish some degree of visibility into the Company's near-term expectations, management will provide, on an interim basis, limited quarterly guidance for net revenues for the closest upcoming reporting period. To this end, the Company is providing the following guidance for the second quarter of 2021:

  • Net revenues in the range of $135 million to $150 million, an increase of 19% to 32% compared to the second quarter of 2020.

Investors interested in participating in the live call can dial 415-226-5361.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Beyond Meat uses the non-GAAP financial measures set forth below in assessing its operating performance and in its financial communications. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful additional information to investors about current trends in the Company's operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of operations. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess operating performance and for business planning purposes. Management also believes these measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts, rating agencies and other parties in evaluating companies in our industry as a measure of our operational performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share

Adjusted net (loss) income is defined as net (loss) income adjusted to exclude, when applicable, costs attributable to COVID-19, as well as other special items, which are those items deemed not to be reflective of the Company’s ongoing normal business activities.

Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share is defined as Adjusted net (loss) income divided by the number of diluted common shares outstanding.

We consider Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share to be indicators of operating performance because excluding special items allows for period-over-period comparisons of our ongoing operations. Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share is a performance measure and should not be used as a measure of liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net (loss) income adjusted to exclude, when applicable, income tax expense (benefit), interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, restructuring expenses, share-based compensation expense, expenses attributable to COVID-19, remeasurement of our warrant liability, and Other, net, including investment income, loss on extinguishment of debt and foreign currency transaction gains and losses. Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

Limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures

There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted net (loss) income, Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues rather than their most directly comparable GAAP measures. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share exclude costs associated with activities deemed to be non-recurring or not part of the Company’s normal business activities, which are subjective determinations made by management and may not actualize as expected;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future increasing our cash requirements;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash required to service our debt, which reduces cash available to us;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that reduce cash available to us;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect restructuring expenses that reduce cash available to us;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect expenses attributable to COVID-19 that reduce cash available to us;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect share-based compensation expense and therefore does not include all of our compensation costs;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect Other, net, including loss on extinguishment of debt and foreign currency transaction gains and losses, that may increase or decrease cash available to us; and

  • other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
