  • Excluding the soft drink concentrate production business and RC Cola International division ("Cott Beverages LLC"), which was sold on February 8, 2019 , gross margin as a percentage of revenue was flat at 49.9%. The fixed cost leverage from revenue growth was offset by the negative impact of foreign exchange as well as incremental operating costs to support increased revenue growth.

  • Excluding Cott Beverages LLC, SG&A as a percentage of revenue was 47.8% compared to 47.6%.

  • Interest expense was $19 million compared to $21 million as the prior year's debt reduction benefited the full quarter of 2019 compared to only two months in the first quarter of 2018.

  • Reported net loss and net loss per diluted share were $20 million and $0.14 , respectively, compared to reported net income and net income per diluted share of $5 million and $0.03 , respectively. Adjusted EBITDA was $63 million compared to $64 million as the growth in revenue was offset by the negative impact of approximately $2 million of foreign exchange and increased operating costs.

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $24 million , less $24 million of capital expenditures, resulted in nil free cash flow, or $4 million of adjusted free cash flow (adjusting for the items set forth on Exhibit 7), compared to adjusted free cash flow of $22 million in the prior year due to the timing of working capital as well as a benefit from other income recorded in the prior year.


FIRST QUARTER 2019 REPORTING SEGMENT PERFORMANCE   

Route Based Services

  • Revenue increased 6% (9% excluding the impact of foreign exchange) to $421 million . A detailed breakdown is tabulated below.

Coffee, Tea and Extract Solutions

  • Revenue increased 1% (4% adjusting for the change in average cost of coffee) driven primarily by 6% growth in coffee and tea pounds sold and 10% volume growth in liquid coffee and extracts, partially offset by the competitive pricing environment within the on-the-go roast and ground coffee market.

2019 FULL YEAR REVENUE, FREE CASH FLOW, AND FOREIGN EXCHANGE OUTLOOK

Cott continues to target full year 2019 consolidated revenue in excess of $2.4 billion and adjusted free cash flow of over $150 million (when excluding acquisition, integration and other one-time cash costs). The targets reflect the sale of Cott Beverages LLC which represented over $80 million in annual revenue, as well as expected foreign exchange headwinds of approximately 1% on full year revenue based on exchange rates as of the end of the first quarter. 

SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

Cott repurchased approximately 0.6 million shares at an average price of $13.77 totaling approximately $8 million during the first quarter under its previously announced share repurchase program.

In addition, 0.2 million shares totaling approximately $3 million were withheld during the first quarter of 2019 to satisfy employees' tax obligations related to share-based awards.

The Company's Board of Directors approved a 12-month share repurchase program of up to $50 million which commenced on December 14, 2018 and replaced the then-existing program, which was scheduled to expire on May 6 , 2019.  Cott intends to manage this program opportunistically and make repurchases from time to time when management believes market conditions are favorable.

There can be no assurance as to the precise number of shares, if any, that will be repurchased under the share repurchase program in the future, or the aggregate dollar amount of the shares to be purchased in future periods. Cott may discontinue purchases at any time, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Shares purchased pursuant to the share repurchase program were subsequently cancelled.

FIRST QUARTER 2019 RESULTS CONFERENCE CALL

Cott Corporation will host a conference call today, May 2, 2019 , at 10:00 a.m. ET , to discuss first quarter results, which can be accessed as follows:

North America : (888) 231-8191

Conference ID: 6679655

ABOUT COTT CORPORATION

Cott is a water, coffee, tea, extracts and filtration service company with a leading volume-based national presence in the North American and European home and office delivery industry for bottled water, and a leader in custom coffee roasting, iced tea blending, and extract solutions for the U.S. foodservice industry.  Our platform reaches over 2.5 million customers or delivery points across North America and Europe and is supported by strategically located sales and distribution facilities and fleets, as well as wholesalers and distributors.  This enables us to efficiently service residences, businesses, restaurant chains, hotels and motels, small and large retailers and healthcare facilities.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement its reporting of financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, Cott utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures.  Cott excludes from GAAP revenue the impact of foreign exchange and the change in average costs of coffee, as well as other items identified on the exhibits hereto, to separate the impact of these factors from Cott's results of operations.  Cott utilizes EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA on a global and segment basis to separate the impact of certain items from the underlying business.  Because Cott uses these adjusted financial results in the management of its business, management believes this supplemental information is useful to investors for their independent evaluation and understanding of Cott's underlying business performance and the performance of its management.  Additionally, Cott supplements its reporting of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations determined in accordance with GAAP by excluding additions to property, plant and equipment to present free cash flow, and by excluding acquisition and integration cash costs,  a working capital adjustment related to the Concentrate Supply Agreement with Refresco and other cash inflows to present adjusted free cash flow, which management believes provides useful information to investors in assessing our performance, comparing our performance to the performance of our peer group and assessing our ability to service debt and finance strategic opportunities, which include investing in our business, making strategic acquisitions, paying dividends, repurchasing common shares and strengthening the balance sheet.  The non-GAAP financial measures described above are in addition to, and not meant to be considered superior to, or a substitute for, Cott's financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings announcement reflect management's judgment of particular items, and may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies. 

Safe Harbor Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 conveying management's expectations as to the future based on plans, estimates and projections at the time Cott makes the statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties and Cott cautions you that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any such forward-looking statement. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release include, but are not limited to, statements related to the amount of shares that may be repurchased under the share repurchase program, the execution of our strategic priorities, future financial and operating trends and results (including Cott's outlook on 2019 revenue and free cash flow) and related matters. The forward-looking statements are based on assumptions regarding management's current plans and estimates. Management believes these assumptions to be reasonable, but there is no assurance that they will prove to be accurate.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in this press release include, among others: our ability to compete successfully in the markets in which we operate; our ability to pass on increased costs to our customers or hedge against such rising costs and the impact of those increased prices on our volumes; our ability to manage our operations successfully; our ability to fully realize the potential benefit of acquisitions or other strategic opportunities that we pursue; potential liabilities associated with our recent divestitures; our ability to realize the revenue and cost synergies of our acquisitions because of integration difficulties and other challenges; our exposure to intangible asset risk; currency fluctuations that adversely affect the exchange between the U.S. dollar and the British pound sterling, the Euro, the Canadian dollar and other currencies, and the exchange between the British pound sterling and the Euro; our ability to maintain favorable arrangements and relationships with our suppliers; our ability to meet our obligations under our debt agreements, and risks of further increases to our indebtedness; our ability to maintain compliance with the covenants and conditions under our debt agreements; fluctuations in interest rates, which could increase our borrowing costs; the incurrence of substantial indebtedness to finance our acquisitions; the impact on our financial results from uncertainty in the financial markets and other adverse changes in general economic conditions; any disruption to production at our manufacturing facilities; our ability to maintain access to our water sources; our ability to protect our intellectual property; compliance with product health and safety standards; liability for injury or illness caused by the consumption of contaminated products; liability and damage to our reputation as a result of litigation or legal proceedings; changes in the legal and regulatory environment in which we operate; the seasonal nature of our business and the effect of adverse weather conditions;  the impact of national, regional and global events, including those of a political, economic, business and competitive nature; our ability to recruit, retain and integrate new management; our ability to renew our collective bargaining agreements on satisfactory terms; disruptions in our information systems; our ability to securely maintain our customers' confidential or credit card information, or other private data relating to our employees or our company; our ability to maintain our quarterly dividend; our ability to adequately address the challenges and risks associated with our international operations and address difficulties in complying with laws and regulations including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the U.K. Bribery Act of 2010; increased tax liabilities in the various jurisdictions in which we operate; the impact of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on our tax obligations and effective tax rate; and credit rating changes.

The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Readers are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures, including but not limited to risk factors contained in Cott's Annual Report on Form 10-K and its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, as well as other filings with the securities commissions. Cott does not undertake to update or revise any of these statements in light of new information or future events, except as expressly required by applicable law.
