` FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE McCORMICK REPORTS FIRST QUARTER PERFORMANCE AND REITERATES 2022 OUTLOOK HUNT VALLEY, Md., March 29, 2022 - McCormick & Company, Incorporated (NYSE: MKC), a global leader in flavor, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended February 28, 2022. • Sales rose 3% in the first quarter from the year-ago period. In constant currency, the Company grew sales 4%. • Operating income was $207 million in the first quarter compared to $236 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income was $227 million compared to $263 million in the first quarter of 2021. • Earnings per share was $0.57 in the first quarter as compared to $0.60 in the year-ago period. Adjusted earnings per share was $0.63 as compared to $0.72 in the year-ago period. • For fiscal year 2022, McCormick reiterated its sales, operating income, and earnings per share outlook. Chairman, President & CEO's Remarks Lawrence E. Kurzius, Chairman, President and CEO, stated, "In our first quarter, we delivered solid financial results in line with our expectations. We grew constant currency sales 4% on top of 20% constant currency growth in the first quarter of last year, demonstrating our broad and advantaged global flavor portfolio, as well as the effective execution of our pricing actions. Our Consumer segment sales, while impacted by lapping high year-ago demand, continued to reflect the sustained shift to higher at-home consumption compared to pre-pandemic levels. Our Flavor Solutions segment growth was driven by outstanding performance with our packaged food and beverage customers as well as robust demand from our restaurant and other foodservice customers, due in part to lapping curtailed away-from-home dining in the year-ago period. "As we anticipated, in the first quarter, the profit driven by our sales growth was more than offset by higher inflation and broad-based supply chain challenges. We continue to operate in a highly inflationary environment and expect to fully offset cost pressures over time using pricing and other levers as we have in the past. The strength of our business model, the value of our products and
` capabilities and the successful execution of our long-term strategies give us confidence in our robust sales growth momentum and in our ability to successfully navigate the continuing challenges of the dynamic global environment. “We continue to capitalize on the sustained shift to cooking more at home, increased digital engagement, clean and flavorful eating, and trusted brands. These long-term trends and the rising demand for great taste are as relevant today as ever. Our alignment with these trends, in combination with the breadth and reach of our portfolio and our strategic investments are continuing to provide a strong foundation for long-term, sustainable growth. Our fundamentals, momentum, and growth outlook are stronger than ever, positioning us well to deliver another year of strong performance in 2022. “I want to recognize McCormick employees around the world as they drive our momentum and success. With our vision to stand together for flavor and our relentless focus on growth, performance, and people, we are confident our strategies will effectively position us to drive sustainable future growth and create long-term value for our shareholders." First Quarter 2022 Results McCormick reported a 3% sales increase in the first quarter from the year-ago period, including a 1% unfavorable impact from currency. One month of incremental sales from FONA, acquired in December 2020, contributed 1% to the quarterly sales increase. In the Flavor Solutions segment, base business, new product and acquisition growth all contributed to the 12% increase, or 14% in constant currency. Flavor Solutions sales growth was driven by the Company's differentiated customer engagement, pricing actions to partially offset costs, and the continued demand recovery of away- from-home products. Consumer segment sales declined 2%, with minimal impact from currency, and included pricing actions taken to partially offset cost inflation. This performance, against 35% growth in the first quarter of 2021 reflects the sustained shift to consumers cooking more at home, which the Company continues to fuel with brand marketing, category management and new products. Higher cost inflation, partially offset by pricing actions and cost savings led by the Company's Comprehensive Continuous Improvement (CCI) program, resulted in a decline in gross profit margin of 220 basis points, or 260 basis points excluding transaction and integration expenses. Operating income was $207 million in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $236 million in the first quarter of 2021. This decline was driven by gross margin compression, strategic investment spending, and higher special charges partially offset by the favorable impact of higher sales, CCI-led cost savings, and lower transaction and integration expenses. In the first quarter of 2022, the Company recognized $20 million of special charges versus $1 million in 2021 and $1 million of transaction and integration expenses related to the acquisitions of Cholula and FONA versus $25 million in 2021. Excluding special charges, as well as transaction and integration expenses, adjusted operating income was $227 million compared to $263 million in the year-ago period.
` Earnings per share was $0.57 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.60 in the first quarter of 2021. Special charges and integration expenses lowered earnings per share by $0.06 in 2022. Transaction and integration expenses, including an unfavorable income tax expense impact from a discrete item related to the acquisition of FONA, as well as special charges lowered earnings per share by $0.12 in the first quarter of 2021. Excluding these impacts, adjusted earnings per share was $0.63 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to $0.72 in the year-ago period. This decrease was driven by lower adjusted operating income. Net cash provided by operating activities in the first quarter of 2022 was $18 million compared to net cash used by operating activities of $32 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was driven by working capital improvements and lower payments of transaction and integration costs. Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Outlook For the 2022 fiscal year, McCormick reiterated its financial outlook for sales, operating income and earnings per share. McCormick’s broad and advantaged global flavor portfolio enables the Company to meet the rising demand for flavor around the world. The Company is capitalizing on the growing consumer interests in healthy and flavorful cooking, digital engagement, trusted brands, and purpose-minded practices. This, coupled with the breadth and reach of McCormick's portfolio and its effective strategies, sustainably position the Company to continue on its growth trajectory. In 2022, the Company expects to grow sales by 3% to 5% compared to 2021, which in constant currency is 4% to 6%. McCormick expects sales growth to be driven by brand marketing, new products, category management and differentiated customer engagement, as well as pricing actions, which in conjunction with cost savings, are expected to offset anticipated inflationary pressures. Operating income in 2022 is expected to grow by 13% to 15% from $1.02 billion in 2021. The Company anticipates integration expenses related to the FONA acquisition of approximately $3 million in 2022. In addition, McCormick expects approximately $30 million of special charges in 2022 that relate to previously announced organization and streamlining actions. Excluding the impact of integration expenses as well as special charges in 2022 and 2021, adjusted operating income is expected to increase 7% to 9%, which in constant currency is 8% to 10%. McCormick projects 2022 earnings per share to be in the range of $3.07 to $3.12, compared to $2.80 of earnings per share in 2021. The Company expects integration expenses, as well as special charges, to lower earnings per share by $0.10 in 2022. Excluding these impacts, the Company projects 2022 adjusted earnings per share to be in the range of $3.17 to $3.22, compared to $3.05 of adjusted earnings per share in 2021, which represents an expected increase of 4% to 6%, or in constant currency 5% to 7%. This reflects strong operating growth, partially offset by a 3% headwind from an anticipated increase in the Company's projected adjusted effective tax rate. For fiscal 2022, the
` Company expects strong cash flow and anticipates returning a significant portion to shareholders through dividends. Business Segment Results Consumer Segment (in millions) Three months ended 2/28/2022 2/28/2021 Net sales $ 926.1 $ 946.8 Operating income, excluding special charges, transaction and integration expenses 167.0 189.9 Consumer segment sales declined 2% from the first quarter of 2021, with minimal impact from currency. Sales growth in the Americas was offset by declines in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia/Pacific regions. Pricing actions contributed to growth in all three regions. • Consumer sales in the Americas rose 2% compared to the first quarter of 2021, with minimal impact from currency. The increase was on top of double-digit growth in the first quarter of 2021 and was driven by growth across the branded portfolio. • Consumer sales in EMEA declined 14% compared to the year-ago period. In constant currency, sales decreased 9% due to lapping high demand that drove double-digit growth in the year-ago period. • Consumer sales in the Asia/Pacific region were 4% lower than the year-ago period, including a 2% favorable impact from currency. In constant currency, sales declined 6% against a strong comparison to double-digit growth in the first quarter of 2021. Consumer segment operating income, excluding transaction and integration expenses, as well as special charges, decreased 12% in first quarter of 2022 compared to the year-ago period. There was minimal impact from currency. The decline was driven by lower sales and higher cost inflation, partially offset by pricing actions, CCI-led cost savings and lower COVID-19 related costs. Flavor Solutions Segment (in millions) Three months ended 2/28/2022 2/28/2021 Net sales $ 596.3 $ 534.7 Operating income, excluding special charges, transaction and integration expenses 60.1 72.6
` Flavor Solutions segment sales increased 12% in the first quarter, with one month of incremental sales from the FONA acquisition contributing 2% to that increase. In constant currency, sales increased 14%, led by the Americas and EMEA regions. Pricing actions contributed to growth in all three regions. • In the Americas, Flavor Solutions sales rose 12% compared to the first quarter of 2021, with minimal impact from currency. The increase was driven by continued growth with packaged food and beverage companies, higher sales to branded foodservice customers and a 2% contribution from the FONA acquisition. • The EMEA region's Flavor Solutions sales increased 15% compared to the first quarter of 2021. In constant currency sales grew 24% led by strong growth with quick service restaurants and branded foodservice customers. • The Asia/Pacific region's Flavor Solutions sales grew 3% compared to the first quarter of 2021. In constant currency, sales increased 5%. This increase was driven by quick service restaurants, partially impacted by the timing of customers' promotional activities. Flavor Solutions segment operating income, excluding transaction and integration expenses, as well as special charges, was 17% lower in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the year-ago period. In constant currency, Flavor Solutions operating income declined 11% driven by the net impact of higher cost inflation, pricing actions and CCI-led cost savings, as well as strategic investment spending. These impacts were partially offset by higher sales. Non-GAAP Financial Measures The tables below include financial measures of adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted income tax expense, adjusted income tax rate, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. These represent non- GAAP financial measures which are prepared as a complement to our financial results prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles. These financial measures exclude the impact, as applicable, of the following: Special charges – In our consolidated income statement, we include a separate line item captioned “Special charges” in arriving at our consolidated operating income. Special charges consist of expenses associated with certain actions undertaken by the Company to reduce fixed costs, simplify or improve processes, and improve our competitiveness and are of such significance in terms of both up-front costs and organizational/structural impact to require advance approval by our Management Committee. Upon presentation of any such proposed action (including details with respect to estimated costs, which generally consist principally of employee severance and related benefits, together with ancillary costs associated with the action that may include a non-cash component or a component which relates to inventory adjustments that are included in cost of goods sold; impacted employees or operations; expected timing; and expected savings) to the Management Committee and
` the Committee’s advance approval, expenses associated with the approved action are classified as special charges upon recognition and monitored on an ongoing basis through completion. Transaction and integration expenses associated with the Cholula and FONA acquisitions – We exclude certain costs associated with our acquisitions of Cholula and FONA in November and December 2020, respectively, and their subsequent integration into the Company. Such costs, which we refer to as “Transaction and integration expenses”, include transaction costs associated with each acquisition, as well as integration costs following the respective acquisition, including the impact of the acquisition date fair value adjustment for inventories, together with the impact of discrete tax items, if any, directly related to each acquisition. Income from sale of unconsolidated operations – We exclude the gain realized upon our sale of an unconsolidated operation that occurred during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The sale of our 26% interest in Eastern Condiments Private Ltd resulted in a gain of $13.4 million, net of tax of $5.7 million. The gain is included in Income from unconsolidated operations in our consolidated income statement for the year ended November 30, 2021. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are important. The exclusion of the items noted above provides additional information that enables enhanced comparisons to prior periods and, accordingly, facilitates the development of future projections and earnings growth prospects. This information is also used by management to measure the profitability of our ongoing operations and analyze our business performance and trends. These non-GAAP financial measures may be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but they should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate them in the same manner that we do. We intend to continue to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the related GAAP financial measures is provided below:

` (1) Transaction and integration expenses include transaction and integration expenses associated with our acquisitions of Cholula and FONA. These expenses include the effect of the fair value adjustment to acquired inventories on cost of goods sold and the unfavorable impact of a discrete deferred state income tax expense item, directly related to our December 2020 acquisition of FONA, of $11.4 million or $0.04 per diluted share for the three months ended February 28, 2021. (2) Adjusted gross profit margin is calculated as adjusted gross profit as a percentage of net sales for each period presented. (3) Adjusted operating income margin is calculated as adjusted operating income as a percentage of net sales for each period presented. (4) Adjusted income tax rate is calculated as adjusted income tax expense as a percentage of income from consolidated operations before income taxes excluding transaction and integration expenses and special charges of $200.2 million and $233.3 million for the three months ended February 28, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Because we are a multi-national company, we are subject to variability of our reported U.S. dollar results due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Those changes have been volatile over the past several years. The exclusion of the effects of foreign currency exchange, or what we refer to as amounts expressed “on a constant currency basis”, is a non-GAAP measure. We believe that this non- GAAP measure provides additional information that enables enhanced comparison to prior periods excluding the translation effects of changes in rates of foreign currency exchange and provides additional insight into the underlying performance of our operations located outside of the U.S. It should be noted that our presentation herein of amounts and percentage changes on a constant currency basis does not exclude the impact of foreign currency transaction gains and losses (that is, the impact of transactions denominated in other than the local currency of any of our subsidiaries in their local currency reported results). Percentage changes in sales and adjusted operating income expressed on a constant currency basis are presented excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange. To present this information for historical periods, current period results for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates in effect during the corresponding period of the comparative year, rather than at the actual average exchange rates in effect during the current fiscal year. As a result, the foreign currency impact is equal to the current year results in local currencies multiplied by the change in the average foreign currency exchange rate between the current fiscal period and the corresponding period of the comparative year. Rates of constant currency growth (decline) follow:

To estimate the percentage change in adjusted earnings per share on a constant currency basis, a similar calculation is performed to arrive at adjusted net income divided by historical shares outstanding for fiscal year 2021 or projected shares outstanding for fiscal year 2022, as appropriate.
