ORRVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The J.M. Smucker Co. (NYSE: SJM) today announced results for the first quarter ended July 31, 2021, of its 2022 fiscal year. Financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 reflect the divestiture of the Crisco® business on December 1, 2020, and the divestiture of the Natural Balance® business on January 29, 2021. All comparisons are to the first quarter of the prior fiscal year, unless otherwise noted.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • Net sales decreased $113.8 million, or 6 percent. Net sales excluding divestitures and foreign currency exchange increased 1 percent.

  • Net income per diluted share was $1.42. Adjusted earnings per share was $1.90, a decrease of 20 percent.

  • Cash from operations was $137.8 million, a decrease of 66 percent. Free cash flow was $69.8 million, compared to $332.4 million in the prior year.

  • The Company updated its full-year fiscal 2022 financial outlook.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"Our first quarter results reflected organic net sales growth, while lapping double-digit growth in the prior year, and continued to demonstrate consumers' desire for our brands, while earnings were in line with our expectations," said Mark Smucker, President and Chief Executive Officer. "The progress we have made against our strategy and executional priorities has made us a stronger company, positioning our iconic brands for continued growth in market share."

"Our industry continues to navigate a period of significant supply chain volatility, disruption, and cost inflation. In the near term, we expect to experience higher raw material and logistics cost increases. However, we are optimistic in managing these challenges and remain confident in the momentum of our business, the talent and commitment of our people, and our strengthened financial position to deliver balanced top- and bottom-line growth and long-term shareholder value."

Net Sales

Net sales decreased 6 percent. Excluding noncomparable net sales of $135.5 million for the divested Crisco® and Natural Balance® businesses, as well as $10.4 million of favorable foreign currency exchange, net sales increased $11.3 million, or 1 percent.

The increase in comparable net sales was primarily due to favorable volume/mix for the Company's Away From Home operating segment and U.S. Retail Pet Foods segment, partially offset by reduced volume/mix for its International operating segment and U.S. Retail Coffee segment. Net price realization was a slight benefit, primarily reflecting higher net pricing in the U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segment, mostly offset by lower net pricing in the U.S. Retail Coffee segment.

Operating Income

Gross profit decreased $136.0 million, or 18 percent, reflecting higher costs, primarily driven by increased commodity and transportation costs, the noncomparable impact of the Crisco® and Natural Balance® divestitures, and a decreased contribution from volume/mix. Operating income decreased $101.7 million, or 28 percent, primarily driven by the decrease in gross profit, partially offset by a $33.5 million decrease in selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses, primarily attributable to decreased marketing expense.

Adjusted gross profit decreased $113.0 million, or 15 percent, with the difference from generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") results being the exclusion of the change in net cumulative unallocated derivative gains and losses and special project costs. Adjusted operating income decreased $81.1 million, or 20 percent, further reflecting the exclusion of amortization and other special project costs.

Interest Expense, Other Income (Expense), and Income Taxes

Net interest expense decreased $3.0 million, primarily as a result of reduced debt outstanding as compared to the prior year.

Net other expense increased $9.7 million, driven by a $6.9 million net loss on extinguishment recognized upon prepayment of $400.0 million in principal of Senior Notes and a $3.7 million settlement loss related to a defined benefit pension plan.

The effective income tax rate was 25.0 percent compared to 24.4 percent in the prior year. The adjusted effective income tax rate was 23.6 percent, compared to 24.4 percent in the prior year. The adjusted effective income tax rate excludes a discrete deferred state income tax adjustment in the current year.

Cash Flow and Debt

Cash provided by operating activities was $137.8 million, compared to $409.0 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting an increase in working capital requirements, as compared to the prior year, and a decrease in net income adjusted for noncash items. Free cash flow was $69.8 million, compared to $332.4 million in the prior year, reflecting the decrease in cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by a $8.6 million decrease in capital expenditures. Net debt repayments in the quarter totaled $123.0 million.

The pandemic and related implications, along with cost inflation and volatility in supply chains, continue to impact financial results and cause uncertainty and risk for the fiscal year 2022 outlook. Any manufacturing or supply chain disruption, as well as changes in consumer mobility and purchasing behavior, retailer inventory levels, and macroeconomic conditions could materially impact actual results. While the broader outlook remains uncertain, the Company continues to focus on managing the elements it can control, including taking the necessary steps to minimize the impact of cost inflation and any business or labor disruption. This guidance reflects performance expectations based on the Company's current understanding of the environment.

Net sales are expected to decrease 1.5 to 2.5 percent compared to the prior year, which incorporates an impact of $355.6 million related to the divested Crisco® and Natural Balance® businesses. On a comparable basis, net sales are expected to increase approximately 2.5 percent at the mid-point of the net sales guidance range, reflecting a deceleration in at-home consumption trends, more than offset by higher net pricing across multiple categories, continued double-digit net sales growth for the Smucker's® Uncrustables® brand, and a recovery in away from home channels. The net sales guidance reflects incremental net pricing actions in response to higher costs versus previous expectations, offset by reduced volume/mix, inclusive of anticipated price elasticity and supply disruption for internationally sourced pet food products.

Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $8.25 to $8.65, based on 108.3 million shares outstanding. The earnings guidance reflects the decrease in net sales, adjusted gross profit margin of approximately 36.0 percent, and SD&A expenses down approximately 6 percent compared to the prior year. The adjusted effective income tax rate is expected to be 24.0 percent, and free cash flow is expected to be approximately $800 million, with capital expenditures of $380 million.

Higher net price realization contributed 4 percentage points of growth, primarily driven by peanut butter and Smucker's® Uncrustables® frozen sandwiches. Volume/mix was neutral, as growth for Smucker's® Uncrustables® frozen sandwiches and Jif® peanut butter was mostly offset by a decline for Smucker's® fruit spreads.

Segment profit decreased $12.8 million, reflecting the noncomparable segment profit in the prior year related to the divested Crisco® business and higher transportation, commodity, and packaging costs, partially offset by the higher net pricing and a reduced marketing expense.

Comparable net sales growth of 27 percent for the Away from Home operating segment was partially offset by a 12 percent decline for the Company's International operating segment.

Net price realization contributed a 1 percentage point increase.

Segment profit increased $2.0 million, primarily reflecting favorable foreign currency exchange, decreased marketing expense, and the favorable impact of net pricing and costs. This was partially offset by the noncomparable segment profit in the prior year related to the divested Crisco® business and a reduced contribution from volume/mix.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding divestitures and foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit; adjusted operating income; adjusted income; adjusted earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges related to intangible assets ("EBITDA (as adjusted)"); and free cash flow, as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally. The Company believes that investors' understanding of its performance is enhanced by disclosing these performance measures. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures are used by management in preparation of the annual budget and for the monthly analyses of its operating results. The Board of Directors also utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures as components for measuring performance for incentive compensation purposes.

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items affecting comparability that can significantly affect the year-over-year assessment of operating results, which include amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets; divestiture, acquisition, integration, and restructuring costs ("special project costs"); gains and losses related to the sale of a business; the net change in cumulative unallocated gains and losses on commodity and foreign currency exchange derivative activities ("change in net cumulative unallocated derivative gains and losses"); and other one-time items that do not directly reflect ongoing operating results. Income taxes, as adjusted is calculated using an adjusted effective income tax rate that is applied to adjusted income before income taxes and reflects the exclusion of the previously discussed items, as well as any adjustments for one-time tax-related activities, when they occur. While this adjusted effective income tax rate does not generally differ materially from the GAAP effective income tax rate, certain exclusions from non-GAAP results can significantly impact the adjusted effective income tax rate.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments. A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the current and prior year periods is included in the "Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables. The Company has also provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures for its fiscal 2022 outlook.

(A) We are unable to project derivative gains and losses on a forward-looking basis as these will vary each quarter based on market
conditions and derivative positions taken. The change in unallocated derivative gains and losses in the table above reflects the net impact
of the gains and losses that have been recognized in our GAAP results and excluded from non-GAAP results as of July 31, 2021,
adjusted for the gains and losses expected to be allocated to non-GAAP results for the year ended April 30, 2022.
