SANTA PAULA, Calif., Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calavo Growers, Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: CVGW), a global avocado-industry leader and provider of value-added fresh food, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended July 31, 2021.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenue of $285.0 million, a 5% increase from the year-ago quarter.

  • Fresh segment revenue was flat year-over-year, and Renaissance Food Group (“RFG”) and Foods segments revenues increased 14% and 12% year-over-year, respectively.

  • Gross profit of $7.9 million, or 2.8% of revenue, compared to $30.8 million, or 11.4% of revenue, for the year-ago quarter.

  • Net loss of $(13.0) million, or $(0.74) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $(15.6) million, or ($0.89) per diluted share, for the same period last year. Adjusted net loss was $(3.0) million, or $(0.17) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $12.9 million, or $0.73 per share last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million compared to $22.8 million for the same period last year.

Adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Management Commentary
“Our results for the third quarter of this year were adversely impacted by inflationary pressures on labor, raw materials and freight, all of which accelerated as the third quarter progressed. These factors taken together with the delayed summer avocado crops coming from California and Mexico impacted our margins and profitability,” said Steven Hollister, incoming Interim CEO of Calavo Growers. “We are taking the necessary steps to mitigate the current higher cost environment and to navigate the tight labor market and various supply chain issues. While we are managing through challenging times, we are moving forward with the implementation of our strategic initiatives to increase the operating leverage and synergies across our entire organization, and we believe we will emerge as a stronger and more resilient company. The underlying fundamental drivers of our business remain intact, and we remain confident in the opportunities we have to accelerate growth in the years ahead.”

Third Quarter 2021 Consolidated Financial Review
Total revenue for the third quarter 2021 was $285.0 million, compared to $270.4 million for the third quarter 2021, an increase of 5%. The average selling price of avocados in the Company’s Fresh segment was higher by 10% while volumes were 8% lower than the prior-year period due to the delayed start of the summer season in both California and Mexico. Fresh segment sales were flat, while the RFG and Foods business segments each had double-digit sales growth of 14% and 12%, respectively.

Gross profit for the third quarter was $7.9 million, or 2.8% of revenue, compared to $30.8 million, or 11.4% of revenue, for the same period last year. The decrease in gross profit margin reflected inflationary pressures on labor, raw materials and freight, as well as delays in avocado crops from Mexico and California resulting in less desirable fruit (both in sizes and quality).

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense for the third quarter totaled $12.4 million, or 4.4% of revenue, compared to $13.4 million, or 5.0% of revenue, for the same period last year. The year-over-year improvement in SG&A expense was primarily related to lower stock-based compensation and a decrease in salary and benefit expense as a result of consolidation initiatives.

Net loss for the third quarter was $(13.0) million, or $(0.74) per diluted share. This compares with a net loss of $(15.6) million, or $(0.89) per diluted share, for the same period last year. Included in these results were a $6.0 million recovery from FreshRealm reflecting the fulfillment of its separation agreement with the Company and $13.8 million of charges relating to Mexican tax assessments for the 2011 and 2013 tax years.

Adjusted net loss was $(3.0) million, or $(0.17) per diluted share, for the third quarter, compared to adjusted net income of $12.9 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $22.8 million for the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.3 million as of July 31, 2021, which included approximately $1.0 million of restricted cash balances in Mexico. Total liquidity at quarter end was approximately $144.4 million, including unrestricted cash, investments, and borrowings available under a line of credit.

The Company ended the quarter with $43.2 million of total debt, which included $36.0 million of borrowings under its line of credit and $7.2 million of long-term obligations and finance leases.

Third Quarter Business Segment Performance
Fresh
Third quarter 2021 sales in Calavo’s Fresh business segment were $161.6 million, essentially flat with $162.1 million for the same period last year. A delay in expected avocado supply from Mexico and California coupled with sub-optimal fruit size negatively impacted sales volume, which was 8% lower than the year-ago period, largely offset by the average selling price, which was 10% higher. Fresh segment gross profit for the third quarter of 2021 was $12.2 million, or 7.6% of segment sales, compared to $17.7 million, or 10.9% of segment sales, for the same period last year. The decrease in gross profit was primarily due to the lower volume at gross margin per carton below historical averages.

Renaissance Food Group (RFG)
RFG business segment sales in the third quarter 2021 were $103.8 million, up 14% from $90.9 million in the same period last year, reflecting improving demand as the country reopens from the pandemic versus the year-ago quarter. Segment gross loss was $(5.6) million, down from gross profit of $8.1 million for the same period last year. Gross margin was adversely impacted by market-wide factors such as higher labor costs, poor fruit quality and yield, and increased freight costs, as well as a $2.3 million charge for disputed accounts receivable from certain customers deemed uncollectable.

Foods
Sales in the Foods segment totaled $21.3 million for the third quarter 2021, 12% higher than $19.0 million in the same period last year due to improving conditions as foodservice recovered from the pandemic and to a lesser extent an increase in international revenue. Segment gross profit totaled $1.3 million, or 5.9% of sales, for the third quarter, compared to $5.0 million, or 26.6% of sales, for the same period last year. The decrease in gross profit for the third quarter was primarily due to an increase in avocado costs.

Outlook
The long-term outlook for Calavo’s business is positive; however, it is difficult to predict when or if industry-wide inflationary pressures on raw materials, freight and labor costs will subside and the timing of and degree to which the Company’s pricing initiatives will offset these pressures. Given this evolving dynamic, the Company will refrain from providing revenue or adjusted EBITDA expectations until the environment has stabilized.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS, which are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or “GAAP.”

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. excluding (1) interest income and expense, (2) income tax (benefit) provision, (3) depreciation and amortization and (4) stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA with further adjustments for (1) non-cash net losses recognized from unconsolidated entities, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) write-off of long-lived assets, (4) acquisition-related costs, (5) restructuring-related costs, including certain severance costs, (6) certain litigation and other related costs, and (7) one-time items. Adjusted EBITDA is a primary metric by which management evaluates the operating performance of the business, on which certain operating expenditures and internal budgets are based. The adjustments to calculate EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are items recognized and recorded under GAAP in particular periods but might be viewed as not necessarily coinciding with the underlying business operations for the periods in which they are so recognized and recorded.

Adjusted net income is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. excluding (1) non-cash net losses recognized from unconsolidated entities, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) write-off of long-lived assets, (4) acquisition-related costs, (5) restructuring-related costs, including certain severance costs, (6) certain litigation and other related costs, and (7) one-time items. Adjusted net income and the related measure of adjusted diluted EPS exclude certain items that are recognized and recorded under GAAP in particular periods but might be viewed as not necessarily coinciding with the underlying business operations for the periods in which they are so recognized and recorded. We believe adjusted net income affords investors a different view of the overall financial performance of the Company than adjusted EBITDA and the GAAP measure of net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. Additionally, the Company’s senior management is compensated in part on the basis of Adjusted Net Income.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Items are considered one-time in nature if they are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual and have not occurred in the past two years or are not expected to recur in the next two years, in accordance with SEC rules. One-time items are identified in the notes to the reconciliations in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Non-GAAP information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for, or superior to, any measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. None of these metrics are presented as measures of liquidity. The way the Company measures EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies and may not be identical to corresponding measures used in Company agreements.

Conference Call and Webcast
Calavo will host a conference call, today at 5:00 pm ET/2:00 pm PT to discuss its financial results. The conference call may be accessed by dialing 877-407-3982 (Domestic) or 201-493-6780 (International) with conference ID: 13722246.
