CEO Perspective

“Our business performance continued to improve with second quarter Adjusted EBITDA growth of 6.7%, double-digit Adjusted Diluted EPS growth of 12.3%, and continued expansion of operating leverage per case,” said Chairman and CEO Pietro Satriano. “Total case growth also improved, thanks to strong performance with independent restaurants and improved growth with healthcare and hospitality customers. Our service platform continues to get stronger and we are confident in achieving our financial guidance for the year."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

Total case volume increased 1.7% from the prior year while independent restaurant case volume increased 4.8%, all on an organic basis. Net sales of $6.4 billion for the quarter increased 4.6% from the prior year, due to the increase in case volume and year-over-year inflation in multiple product categories, including grocery, poultry and produce.

Gross profit of $1.1 billion increased $28 million, or 2.5%, from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives and an increase in case volume, which were partially offset by an unfavorable year-over-year change in the last-in, first-out (LIFO) reserve. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.7%. Adjusted Gross profit was $1.2 billion, a 4.8% increase from the prior year, driven by margin expansion initiatives and an increase in case volume. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.9%.

Operating expenses were $948 million, an increase of 4.4% from the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by higher wage costs, acquisition-related costs and depreciation expense, which were partially offset by the positive impact of expense control initiatives. Adjusted Operating expenses for the quarter were $838 million, a 4.0% increase from the prior year, driven by higher wage and distribution costs.

Income before income taxes was $154 million, a $7 million decrease from the prior year.

Net income for the quarter was $116 million, down $10 million from the prior year, primarily driven by an unfavorable year-over-year change in the LIFO reserve and higher Operating expenses, which were partially offset by an increase in Gross profit as discussed above. Adjusted EBITDA was $320 million, an increase of $20 million, or 6.7%, compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS decreased 8.6% to $0.53 and Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 12.3% to $0.64.

Six Month Fiscal 2019 Results

Total case volume increased 1.6% from the prior year while independent restaurant case volume increased 5.2%, all on an organic basis. Net sales of $12.5 billion for the first six months of fiscal 2019 increased 4.1% from the prior year, due to the increase in case volume and year-over-year inflation in multiple product categories, including grocery, poultry and produce.

Gross profit of $2.2 billion increased $88 million, or 4.2%, from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives and an increase in case volume. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.6%. Adjusted Gross profit was $2.2 billion, a 4.4% increase from the prior year, driven by margin expansion initiatives and an increase in case volume. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.7%.

Operating expenses were $1.9 billion, an increase of 4.0% from the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by higher wage, distribution and acquisition-related costs, which were partially offset by the positive impact of expense control initiatives. Adjusted Operating expenses for the quarter were $1.7 billion, a 3.8% increase from the prior year, driven by higher wage and distribution costs.

Income before income taxes was $245 million, a $21 million increase from the prior year.

Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2019 was $187 million, down $6 million from the prior year, primarily driven by higher income taxes and Operating expenses, which were partially offset by an increase in Gross profit as discussed above. Adjusted EBITDA was $552 million, an increase of $29 million, or 5.5%, compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS decreased 4.5% to $0.85 and Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 9.8% to $1.01.

Cash Flow and Capital Transactions

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first six months of fiscal 2019 was $394 million, an increase of $83 million from the prior year primarily driven by $70 million of prior year defined benefit pension plan contributions which did not reoccur in the current year. Cash capital expenditures for the first six months of fiscal 2019 totaled $110 million, compared to $117 million in the prior year.

Net Debt at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2019 was $3.1 billion, a decrease of $244 million versus the end of fiscal 2018. The ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA was 2.7x at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2019, compared to 3.0x at the end of fiscal 2018.

Outlook for Full Year Fiscal 2019

The company is reiterating its previously provided full year fiscal 2019 guidance. The company expects the acquisition of Services Group of America’s Food Group of Companies to close in September.

The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). However, Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures regarding our operational performance and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP.

We use Adjusted Gross profit and Adjusted Operating expenses as supplemental measures to GAAP measures to focus on period-over-period changes in our business and believe this information is helpful to investors. Adjusted Gross profit is Gross profit adjusted to remove the impact of the LIFO inventory reserve changes. Adjusted Operating expenses are Operating expenses adjusted to exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance, as well other items specified in the agreements governing our indebtedness.

We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance because they exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. EBITDA is Net income, plus Interest expense-net, Income tax (benefit)/provision, and Depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for (1) Restructuring costs and Tangible asset impairments; (2) Share-based compensation expense; (3) the non-cash impact of LIFO reserve adjustments; (4) Business transformation costs; and (5) other gains, losses or charges as specified in the agreements governing our indebtedness.

We use Net Debt as a supplemental measure to GAAP measures to review the liquidity of our operations. Net Debt is defined as total debt net of total Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash remaining on the balance sheet as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. We believe that Net Debt is a useful financial metric to assess our ability to pursue business opportunities and investments. Net Debt is not a measure of our liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Cash Flows Provided by Operations or Cash Flows Used in Financing Activities.

We believe that Adjusted Net income is a useful measure of operating performance for both management and investors because it excludes items that are not reflective of our core operating performance and provides an additional view of our operating performance including depreciation, amortization, interest expense, and Income taxes on a consistent basis from period to period. Adjusted Net income is Net income excluding such items as Restructuring benefits and costs, tangible asset impairments, Share-based compensation expense, the non-cash impacts of LIFO reserve adjustments, Business transformation costs (costs associated with the redesign of systems and processes), and other items, and adjusted for the tax effect of the exclusions and discrete tax items. We believe that Adjusted Net income may be used by investors, analysts, and other interested parties to facilitate period-over-period comparisons and provides additional clarity as to how factors and trends impact our operating performance.

We use Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, which is calculated by adjusting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, Diluted Earnings per Share, by excluding the same items excluded in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA to the extent that each such item was included in the applicable GAAP financial measure. We believe the presentation of Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because the measurement excludes amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. We also believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because these metrics may be used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in our industry.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance as well as our performance relative to our competitors as they assist in highlighting trends, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (d) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures, and (e) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and employees. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used in connection with certain covenants and restricted activities under the agreements governing our indebtedness. We also believe these and similar non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry.

We caution readers that our definitions of Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Diluted EPS may not be calculated in the same manner as similar measures used by other companies. Definitions and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the schedules attached to this press release. We have not, however, provided a reconciliation of our full fiscal 2019 Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook because we are not able to accurately estimate all the adjustments on a forward-looking basis and such items could have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results as a result of their variability.

Share-based compensation expense for stock and option awards and discounts provided under employee stock purchase plan.

(3)

 

Represents the non-cash impact of LIFO reserve adjustments.

(4)

Represents our income tax provision adjusted for the tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from Adjusted Net income and the removal of applicable discrete tax items. Applicable discrete tax items include changes in tax laws or rates, changes related to prior year unrecognized tax benefits, discrete changes in valuation allowances, and excess tax benefits associated with share-based compensation. The tax effect of pre-tax items excluded from Adjusted net income is computed using a corporate tax rate after considering the impact of permanent differences and valuation allowances.
