Cott Reports Third Quarter 2018 Results

 
[08-November-2018]
 

(Unless stated otherwise, all third quarter 2018 comparisons are relative to the third quarter of 2017; all information is in U.S. dollars.)

TORONTO and TAMPA, Florida, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cott Corporation (NYSE: COT) (TSX: BCB) today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2018.

THIRD QUARTER 2018 HIGHLIGHTS â€�“ CONTINUING OPERATIONS

  • Increased revenue 5% (6% excluding the impact of foreign exchange and adjusting for the change in average cost of coffee) to $609 million compared to $581 million.
  • Reported net income and net income per diluted share of $9 million and $0.06, respectively, compared to reported net income and net income per diluted share of $2 million and $0.01, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA increased 11% to $93 million.
  • Returned approximately $32 million to shareowners through $8 million in quarterly dividends and $24 million of share repurchases.
  • Updated targeted full year 2018 consolidated revenue to approximately $! 2.37 bill ion from over $2.35 billion and updated full year 2018 cash flow provided by operations to approximately $245 million with capital expenditures of approximately $125 million, resulting in adjusted free cash flow at the upper end of our $115 to $120 million expectation (when excluding acquisition, integration, and other adjustments).
  • Acquired Mountain Valley, a fast-growing premium American brand of spring and sparkling water that is one of the most recognized home and office ("HOD") brands in the United States. Mountain Valley has been bottling in glass continuously since 1871, with one production facility in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and four protected and owned springs in the Ouachita Mountains with excess capacity to supply long-term demand. ! Channels of business include HOD, the natural food channel, on-premise, E-commerce and strategic contract packing.

"We experienced good top and bottom line momentum this quarter driven by increased customers, consumption, pricing, and tuck-in acquisitions within our Route Based Services business," commented Jerry Fowden, Cott's Chief Executive Officer. "With our Route Based Services business performing well including the successful implementation of our pricing actions alongside the addition of a fast-growing premium spring, sparkling and flavored water brand with the acquisition of Mountain Valley, we are well positioned to deliver on our 2018 and 2019 free cash flow goals," continued Mr. Fowden.

THIRD QUARTER 2018 GLOBAL PERFORMANCE FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

  • Revenue increased 5% to $609 million (6% excluding the impact of foreign exchange and adjusting for the change in average cost of coffee) driven primarily by good growth within the Route Based Services segment:

  • Gross profit increased 6% to $311 million, driven primarily by revenue growth which included the implementation of pricing actions taken during the quarter that mitigated the general inflation increases that have been prevalent in 2018 within the Route Based Services segment.
  • Interest expense was $19 million compared to $23 million.
  • Reported net income and net income per diluted share of $9 million and $0.06, respectively, compared to reported net income and net income per diluted share of $2 million and $0.01, respectively.
  • Reported EBITDA was $78 million compared to $75 million in the prior year and adjusted EBITDA increased 11% to $93 million. Both were driven primarily by revenue growth and gross margin expansion.
  • In the third quarter, net cash provided by operating activities of $78 million less $36 million of capital expenditures resulted in reported free cash flow of $42 million and adjusted free cash flow of $56 million compared to adjusted free cash flow of $13 million in the prior year. Year-to-date, net cash provided by operating activities of $146 million less $95 million of capital expenditures resulted in reported free cash flow of $51 million and adjusted free cash flow of $85 million (see Exhibit 7).

(a)

See Exhibit 5 for details by reporting segment

 

  • Gross profit increased 7% to $267 million, due primarily to increased revenue from customer growth, increased consumption and the benefits of tuck-in acquisitions while our pricing initiatives successfully offset the market inflation that has been prevalent in 2018.
  • Operating income increased 27% to $38 million, due largely to an increase in gross profit.

Coffee, Tea and Extract Solutions

  • Revenue decreased 2% to $140 million (increased 1% adjusting for the change in average cost of coffee) driven by the pass-through of lower green coffee commodity costs, change in customer mix, and the lapping of outsized coffee and tea volume growth of 9% last year when we increased our market share and saw new customer pipeline fills. The 1% increase in revenue after adjusting for the change in average cost of coffee was driven by a 51% increase in liquid extract volume, offset in part by a 3% reduction in roast and ground coffee volume.

  • Gross profit was $35 million compared to $37 million and operating income was $5 million compared to $4 million as the effect of lower roast and ground coffee volume and the price/mix shift into larger quick service restaurants was more than offset by liquid extract growth and reduced SG&A costs.

2018 FULL YEAR REVENUE AND FREE CASH FLOW OUTLOOK FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Cott updated its targeted full year 2018 consolidated revenue to $2.37 billion and further detailed the expectation by operating segment with projected full year 2018 revenues as follows:

Updated full year expectations for 2018 cash flow provided by operations of approximately $245 million with capital expenditures of approximately $125 million, resulting in adjusted free cash flow at the upper end of our $115 to $120 million expectation (when excluding acquisition, integration, and other adjustments) as well as full year expectations for 2019 cash flow provided by operations of approximately $265 to $270 million with capital expenditures of approximately $120 million, resulting in adjusted free cash flow of over $150 plus million (when excluding acquisition, integration, and other working capital adjustments). 

*The Mountain Valley acquisition is expected to generate approximately $8 - $9 million in revenue as a part of Cott operations in 2018 and has been included in the 2018 revenue expectations listed above. Mountain Valley will only provide a nominal benefit to free cash flow as a result of the timing of the acquisition. 

 

SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

Cott repurchased approximately 1.6 million shares at an average price of $15.40 totaling approximately $24 million during the third quarter under its previously announced share repurchase program.

The repurchase program is capped at $50 million, commenced on May 7, 2018 and ends 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 cancelled.

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 to separate the impact of these factors from Cott's results of operations. Cott utilizes EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA on a global 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, an! d by excl uding 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, si! milarly t itled 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.

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.
