Second Quarter 2021 Net Revenues Increased 32% Year-Over-Year to $149.4 Million

Foodservice Channel Net Revenues Increased 218% Year-Over-Year

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Aug. 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) (“Beyond Meat” or “the Company”), a leader in plant-based meat, today reported financial results for its second quarter ended July 3, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights1

  • Net revenues were $149.4 million, an increase of 31.8% year-over-year.

  • Gross profit was $47.4 million, or gross margin of 31.7% of net revenues.

  • Net loss was $19.7 million or $0.31 per common share. Net loss as a percentage of net revenues was -13.2%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $2.2 million, or -1.5% of net revenues.

Beyond Meat President and CEO Ethan Brown commented, "We are pleased to report record net revenues and the return to growth in foodservice as our customers welcomed consumers back to their venues. We are also proud of our retail performance, where we drove year-over-year growth despite cycling last year's demand surge driven by consumer panic-buying."

Brown added, "We continue to make substantial investments in our long-term growth here in the U.S. and abroad, maintaining our focus on building innovation, production, and team capabilities for the future. We are thrilled with the response to our new Beyond Chicken product and the continued accolades we are receiving for our latest iteration of the Beyond Burger. Coupled with the week-over-week progress we are seeing with our production capabilities in the EU and China, and our continued advancement of our overall cost-down program, I'm optimistic about what lies ahead. That said, given the recent uptick of COVID-19 cases, which could disrupt demand patterns, we believe caution for the balance of the year generally remains appropriate."

Second Quarter 2021

Net revenues increased 31.8% to $149.4 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $113.3 million in the year-ago period. Growth in net revenues was primarily due to increased foodservice channel sales, reflecting recovery from significantly reduced demand levels in the year-ago period brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Retail channel net revenues increased 6.2% in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the year-ago period, primarily due to increased distribution and sales among international customers, partially offset by lower U.S. retail channel sales compared to the year-ago period, which benefited from consumer stockpiling behavior at the onset of the pandemic. In aggregate, net revenue per pound of $5.69 during the second quarter of 2021 was equivalent to the year-ago period.

Gross profit was $47.4 million, or gross margin of 31.7% of net revenues, in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $33.7 million, or gross margin of 29.7% of net revenues, in the year-ago period. During the second quarter of 2020, gross profit included $5.9 million of costs associated with product repacking activities due to COVID-19. Excluding these costs, of which there were none in the second quarter of 2021, Adjusted gross profit in the year-ago period was $39.6 million, or Adjusted gross margin of 34.9% of net revenues. Compared to Adjusted gross margin in the year-ago period, the decrease in gross margin in the second quarter of 2021 was primarily due to higher fixed overhead costs per unit, increased transportation costs, and higher depreciation and amortization expense, partially offset by lower direct materials cost per unit.

Loss from operations in the second quarter of 2021 was $18.6 million compared to loss from operations of $8.2 million in the year-ago period. The increase in loss from operations was primarily driven by growth in overall headcount levels mainly to support the Company's international growth and operations and innovation capabilities, increased investments in marketing, increased production trial activities, higher restructuring expenses primarily reflecting increased legal expenses, and higher outbound freight costs included in the Company's selling expenses compared to the year-ago period, partially offset by the increase in gross profit during the quarter. The year-ago period also included $1.6 million in product donation costs related to the Company's COVID-19 relief campaign, of which there were no similar costs in the second quarter of 2021.

Net loss was $19.7 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to net loss of $10.2 million in the year-ago period. Net loss per common share was $0.31 in the second quarter of 2021 compared to net loss per common share of $0.16 in the year-ago period. During the second quarter of 2020, net loss included $7.5 million in expenses attributable to COVID-19, specifically $5.9 million in product repacking costs and $1.6 million in product donation costs tied to the Company's COVID-19 relief campaign, and $1.5 million in early debt extinguishment costs. Excluding these costs, Adjusted net loss was $1.2 million, or $0.02 per common share, in the second quarter of 2020. There were no similar costs in the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $2.2 million, or -1.5% of net revenues, in the second quarter of 2021 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $11.7 million, or 10.3% of net revenues, in the year-ago period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents balance was $1.0 billion as of July 3, 2021 and total outstanding debt was $1.1 billion. Net cash used in operating activities was $120.4 million for the six months ended July 3, 2021, compared to $44.3 million for the year-ago period. Capital expenditures totaled $51.4 million for the six months ended July 3, 2021 compared to $26.0 million for the year-ago period. The increase in capital expenditures was primarily due to the Company’s continued investments in production equipment and facilities related to capacity expansion initiatives in the U.S., China and the EU.

Third Quarter 2021 Outlook

The Company recognizes that there remains near-term uncertainty related to COVID-19 and its potential impact on retail and foodservice demand levels. Although management generally anticipates continued recovery in foodservice channels compared to the prior year, such outlook assumes reasonable containment of COVID-19 infection rates both in the U.S. and abroad. Accounting for the ongoing near-term uncertainty, the Company is providing the following guidance for the third quarter of 2021:

  • Net revenues in the range of $120 million to $140 million, an increase of 27% to 48% compared to the third quarter of 2020.

Embedded in the third quarter guidance range above are management's expectations of a sequential moderation in growth in foodservice channels following pipeline restocking activity in the second quarter of 2021; an expectation that U.S. retail channels will benefit less from Fourth of July sales in the third quarter of 2021 given that there were 5 fewer shipping days in the third quarter of 2021 leading up to July 4th compared to the year-ago period; an expected dampening of U.S. and international foodservice revenue growth due to recent losses of distribution and operator challenges due to labor issues; and general caution in light of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 infection rates, particularly due to the Delta variant.

Conference Call and Webcast

Investors interested in participating in the live call can dial 212-231-2927.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful additional information to investors about current trends in the Company's operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of operations. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess operating performance and for business planning purposes. Management also believes these measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts, rating agencies and other parties in evaluating companies in our industry as a measure of our operational performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin

Adjusted gross profit is defined as net revenues less cost of goods sold adjusted to exclude, when applicable, costs attributable to COVID-19 activities which are not considered to be part of the Company’s normal business activities. Adjusted gross margin is defined as Adjusted gross profit divided by net revenues.

Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin are presented to provide additional perspective on underlying trends in the Company’s gross profit and gross margin, which we believe is useful supplemental information for investors to be able to gauge and compare the Company’s current business performance from one period to another.

Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share

Adjusted net (loss) income is defined as net (loss) income adjusted to exclude, when applicable, costs attributable to COVID-19, as well as other special items, which are those items deemed not to be reflective of the Company’s ongoing normal business activities.

Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share is defined as Adjusted net (loss) income divided by the number of diluted common shares outstanding.

We consider Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share to be indicators of operating performance because excluding special items allows for period-over-period comparisons of our ongoing operations. Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share is a performance measure and should not be used as a measure of liquidity.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss adjusted to exclude, when applicable, income tax expense, interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, restructuring expenses, share-based compensation expense, expenses attributable to COVID-19, and Other, net, including interest income, loss on extinguishment of debt and foreign currency transaction gains and losses. Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues.

Limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures

There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted gross profit, Adjusted gross margin, Adjusted net (loss) income, Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as a % of net revenues rather than their most directly comparable GAAP measures. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin exclude costs associated with activities deemed to be non-recurring or not part of the Company’s normal business activities, which are subjective determinations made by management and may not actualize as expected;
  • Adjusted net (loss) income and Adjusted net (loss) income per diluted common share exclude costs associated with activities deemed to be non-recurring or not part of the Company’s normal business activities, which are subjective determinations made by management and may not actualize as expected;
  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future increasing our cash requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash required to service our debt, which reduces cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that reduce cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect restructuring expenses that reduce cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect expenses attributable to COVID-19 that reduce cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect share-based compensation expense and therefore does not include all of our compensation costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect Other, net, including interest income, loss on extinguishment of debt and foreign currency transaction gains and losses, that may increase or decrease cash available to us; and
  • other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
