Management Commentary

"In the third quarter we delivered both sales and profit ahead of our expectations," said IFF CEO Frank Clyburn. "Our volume performance improved sequentially across the majority of our business, and we continued to benefit from our pricing actions and productivity initiatives. Our emphasis to drive working capital improvement yielded strong free cash flow generation, led by a significant reduction in inventory over the course of the year. As we look ahead, we remain committed to delivering our previously announced full year 2023 sales guidance range, and now believe that we can achieve full year 2023 adjusted operating EBITDA at the mid to high-end of our previously announced guidance range."

Clyburn continued, "We also continue to execute our portfolio optimization efforts with the announced sale of Lucas Meyers Cosmetics. Additionally, we are rapidly pursuing divestitures within our portfolio to further reduce our outstanding debt and strengthen our capital structure."

Third Quarter 2023 Consolidated Financial Results

  • Reported net sales for the third quarter were $2.82 billion, a decrease of 8% versus the prior-year period. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral sales1 decreased 3% versus the prior-year period, as growth in Scent and Health & Biosciences was more than offset by softness in Nourish and Pharma Solutions. Volume performance improved sequentially across nearly all businesses, yet remained challenged versus the year-ago period, and pricing continued to be strong.

  • Income before taxes on a reported basis for the third quarter was $59 million. Adjusted operating EBITDA1 for the third quarter was $506 million. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA1 declined 10% versus the prior-year period, as pricing and productivity gains were more than offset by lower volumes and unfavorable manufacturing absorption related to the Company's inventory improvement program.

  • Reported earnings per share (EPS) for the third quarter was $0.10. Adjusted EPS excluding amortization1 was $0.89 per diluted share.

  • Cash flows from operations at the end of the third quarter was $795 million, and free cash flow defined as cash flows from operations less capital expenditures totaled $405 million. This cash flow performance was driven primarily by a strong improvement in inventories, and led by a greater than $600 million reduction in inventory versus year-end 2022. Total debt to trailing twelve months net income at the end of the third quarter was 573.6x. Net debt to credit adjusted EBITDA1 at the end of the third quarter was 4.6x.

Nourish Segment

  • On a reported basis, third quarter sales were $1.45 billion. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral sales1 decreased 7% against a strong double-digit comparison from the year-ago period. Flavors returned to growth in the third quarter and Food Design remained resilient, down modestly versus the prior-year period. Functional Ingredients performance improved sequentially, yet declined mid-teens versus the year-ago period.

  • Nourish adjusted operating EBITDA1 was $178 million and adjusted operating EBITDA margin1 was 12.3% in the third quarter. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA1 declined 26% as price increases and productivity gains were more than offset by lower volumes and unfavorable manufacturing absorption related to the Company's inventory reduction program.

Health & Biosciences Segment

  • On a reported basis, third quarter sales were $518 million. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral sales1 increased 2% driven by growth in Cultures & Food Enzymes, Grain Processing, Home & Personal Care and Animal Nutrition.

  • Health & Biosciences adjusted operating EBITDA1 was $150 million and adjusted operating EBITDA margin1 was 29.0% in the third quarter. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA1 improved 12% led by price increases and productivity gains.

Scent Segment

  • On a reported basis, third quarter sales were $615 million. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral sales1 increased 7% led by double-digit growth in Consumer Fragrance and a high-single digit increase in Fine Fragrance, with balanced contributions from volume and price.

  • Scent adjusted operating EBITDA1 was $131 million and adjusted operating EBITDA margin1 was 21.3% in the third quarter. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA1 increased a very strong 19% led by net favorable price to inflation and productivity gains.

Pharma Solutions Segment

  • On a reported basis, third quarter sales were $238 million. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral sales1 decreased 9% primarily due to a strong double-digit comparison from the year ago period.

  • Pharma Solutions adjusted operating EBITDA1 was $47 million and adjusted operating EBITDA margin1 was 19.7% in the third quarter. On a comparable basis2, currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA1 declined 34% as price increases and productivity gains were more than offset predominantly by lower volumes.

Financial Guidance

The Company reconfirmed its full year 2023 sales guidance range of $11.3 billion to $11.6 billion and now expects to be at the mid to high end of its full year 2023 adjusted operating EBITDA guidance range of $1.85 billion to $2.0 billion driven primarily by favorable price to inflation and improved productivity.

Based on current market foreign exchange rates, the Company expects that foreign exchange will have approximately 2% adverse impact to sales growth and approximately a 6% adverse impact to adjusted operating EBITDA growth in 2023.

The Company cannot reconcile its expected adjusted operating EBITDA without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time. These items include but are not limited to acquisition, divestiture and integration related costs, gains (losses) on business disposals, and regulatory costs.

Audio Webcast

A live webcast to discuss the Company’s third quarter 2023 financial results will be held on November 7, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. ET. The webcast and accompanying slide presentation may be accessed on the Company’s IR website at ir.iff.com. For those unable to listen to the live webcast, a recorded version will be made available on the Company’s website approximately one hour after the event and will remain available on IFF’s website for one year.

The foregoing list of important factors does not include all such factors, nor necessarily present them in order of importance. In addition, you should consult other disclosures made by the Company (such as in our other filings with the SEC or in company press releases) for other factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from those projected by the Company. Please refer to Part I. Item 1A., Risk Factors, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 27, 2023 for additional information regarding factors that could affect our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.

We intend our forward-looking statements to speak only as of the time of such statements and do not undertake or plan to update or revise them as more information becomes available or to reflect changes in expectations, assumptions or results. We can give no assurance that such expectations or forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. An occurrence of, or any material adverse change in, one or more of the risk factors or risks and uncertainties referred to in this press release or included in our other periodic reports filed with the SEC could materially and adversely impact our operations and our future financial results. Any public statements or disclosures made by us following this press release that modify or impact any of the forward-looking statements contained in or accompanying this press release will be deemed to modify or supersede such outlook or other forward-looking statements in or accompanying this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We provide in this press release non-GAAP financial measures, including: (i) comparable currency neutral sales; (ii) adjusted operating EBITDA and comparable currency neutral adjusted operating EBITDA; (iii) adjusted operating EBITDA margin; (iv) adjusted EPS ex amortization; (v) free cash flow; and (vi) net debt to credit adjusted EBITDA.

Our non-GAAP financial measures are defined below.

Currency Neutral metrics eliminate the effects that result from translating non-U.S. currencies to U.S. dollars. We calculate currency neutral numbers by translating current year invoiced sale amounts at the exchange rates used for the corresponding prior year period. We use currency neutral results in our analysis of subsidiary or segment performance. We also use currency neutral numbers when analyzing our performance against our competitors.

Adjusted operating EBITDA and adjusted operating EBITDA margin exclude depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, other (expense) income, net, and certain non-recurring or unusual items that are not part of recurring operations such as, restructuring and other charges, impairment of goodwill, acquisition, divestiture, and integration related costs, losses (gains) on business disposals, strategic initiatives costs, regulatory costs, and other items.

Adjusted EPS ex Amortization excludes the impact of non-operational items including, restructuring and other charges, impairment of goodwill, impairment of long-lived assets, acquisition, divestiture, and integration related costs, losses (gains) on business disposals, gain on China facility relocation, strategic initiatives costs, regulatory costs, and other items that are not a part of recurring operations.

Free Cash Flow is operating cash flow (i.e. cash flow from operations) less capital expenditures.

Net debt to credit adjusted EBITDA is the leverage ratio used in our credit agreements and defined as net debt (which is debt for borrowed money less cash and cash equivalents) divided by the trailing 12-month credit adjusted EBITDA. Credit adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, specified items and non-cash items.

Comparable results for the third quarter exclude the impact of divestitures and acquisitions.

These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide additional information regarding our underlying operating results and comparable year-over-year performance. Such information is supplemental to information presented in accordance with GAAP and is not intended to represent a presentation in accordance with GAAP. In discussing our historical and expected future results and financial condition, we believe it is meaningful for investors to be made aware of and to be assisted in a better understanding of, on a period-to-period comparable basis, financial amounts both including and excluding these identified items, as well as the impact of exchange rate fluctuations. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company’s results under GAAP and may not be comparable to other companies’ calculation of such metrics.

The Company cannot reconcile its expected adjusted operating EBITDA under "Financial Guidance" without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time. These items include but are not limited to acquisition, divestiture and integration related costs, gains (losses) on business disposals, and regulatory costs.
