ORRVILLE, Ohio, Nov. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The J.M. Smucker Co. (NYSE: SJM) today announced results for the second quarter ended October 31, 2021, of its 2022 fiscal year. Financial results for the second 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 second quarter of the prior fiscal year, unless otherwise noted.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

  • Net sales increased $16.0 million, or 1 percent. Net sales excluding divestitures and foreign currency exchange increased 8 percent.
  • Net income per diluted share was $1.90, a decrease of 6 percent. Adjusted earnings per share was $2.43, an increase of 2 percent.
  • Cash from operations was $165.1 million, a decrease of 56 percent. Free cash flow was $105.9 million, compared to $326.3 million in the prior year.
  • The Company updated its full-year fiscal 2022 financial outlook.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS

"Our second quarter results, including comparable net sales growth of 8 percent, exceeded our expectations and demonstrated sustained momentum for our business and strong execution by our talented employees in what remains a dynamic operating environment," said Mark Smucker, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We delivered robust organic top-line growth across each of our segments, reflecting consumers' continued desire for our brands and the successful implementation of initial pricing actions."

"We are pleased with our ability to increase our net sales and adjusted earnings per share expectations for the fiscal year despite increasing cost inflation and continued supply chain disruption. We remain confident that the actions we are taking to execute our strategy are positioning us to deliver sustainable growth and create shareholder value over the long term."

Net Sales

Net sales increased 1 percent. Excluding noncomparable net sales in the prior year of $135.7 million for the divested Crisco® and Natural Balance® businesses, as well as $5.6 million of favorable foreign currency exchange, net sales increased $146.1 million, or 8 percent.

The increase in comparable net sales was due to favorable volume/mix and higher net price realization for each of the Company's U.S. Retail segments and for International and Away From Home. 

Operating Income

Gross profit decreased $106.7 million, or 13 percent, reflecting higher costs, primarily driven by increased commodity, manufacturing, transportation, and packaging costs, and the noncomparable impact of the Crisco® and Natural Balance® divestitures, partially offset by increased pricing and favorable volume/mix. Operating income decreased $69.0 million, or 18 percent, primarily driven by the decrease in gross profit, partially offset by a $35.1 million decrease in selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses. 

Adjusted gross profit decreased $55.8 million, or 7 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 $20.9 million, or 5 percent, further reflecting the exclusion of amortization and other special project costs.

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

Net interest expense decreased $4.8 million, primarily as a result of reduced debt outstanding as compared to the prior year.

Net other expense decreased $29.5 million, primarily due to the lapping of a $27.9 million noncash pre-tax pension settlement charge in the prior year related to the Company's Canadian defined benefit pension plan, which was excluded from adjusted net income.

The effective income tax rate was 23.4 percent compared to 24.0 percent in the prior year. The adjusted effective income tax rate was 23.5 percent, compared to 24.0 percent in the prior year.

Cash Flow and Debt

Cash provided by operating activities was $165.1 million, compared to $378.7 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting an increase in working capital requirements, as compared to the prior year, mostly due to the timing of payments for accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and a decrease in net income adjusted for noncash items. Free cash flow was $105.9 million, compared to $326.3 million in the prior year, reflecting the decrease in cash provided by operating activities and a $6.8 million increase in capital expenditures. Net debt proceeds in the quarter totaled $1.4 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, inclusive of any labor shortages, whether related to illness, vaccine requirements, or other factors, 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 range from down 0.5 percent to up 0.5 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 4.5 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 increase in net sales guidance reflects stronger than anticipated demand in the second quarter and remainder of the year, as well as incremental net pricing actions in the remainder of the fiscal year in response to higher costs.

Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $8.35 to $8.75, based on 108.3 million shares outstanding. The earnings guidance reflects the updated net sales outlook, adjusted gross profit margin to range from 35.0 to 35.5 percent, and SD&A expenses down approximately 7 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 $700 million, with capital expenditures of $400 million.

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 facilitate 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.
