Pilgrim’s Pride Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results with $4.63 Billion in Net Sales and Operating Income Margin of 11.1%

GREELEY, Colo., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NASDAQ: PPC), one of the world's largest poultry producers, reports its second quarter 2022 financial results.

Second Quarter Highlights
Net Sales of $4.63 billion, up 27.3% from prior year.
Consolidated GAAP operating income margin of 11.1% with GAAP operating income margins of 15.6% in U.S., 10.7% in Mexico and 0.6% in Europe.
GAAP Net Income of $362.0 million and GAAP EPS of $1.50. Adjusted Net Income of $370.7 million or adjusted EPS of $1.54.
Adjusted EBITDA of $623.3 million, or an 13.5% margin, 67.7% higher than a year ago.
We are extremely proud of the dedication and outstanding efforts of our global team members, which supported all of our business units’ top line growth through excellent service levels to our Key Customers that drove significant sequential profit improvement for the overall business.
Our US retail and foodservice business remained resilient despite additional cost recovery from inflationary challenges. Margins improved given enhanced market fundamentals in Big Bird Debone and continued operational improvements.
Our brand momentum continues throughout US retail as Just Bare® and Pilgrim’s® Prepared products grew over 96% year over year. E-commerce across our US branded portfolio more than doubled.
Our combined European business drove bottom line improvement from accelerated implementation of operational efficiencies, focus on Key Customer partnerships to recover inflationary costs, and further diversification of product offerings.
Demand in Mexico was solid and our team’s focus and continued operational improvements overcame seasonal challenges in live operations at our locations.
Continuing our commitment to corporate responsibility, our Board of Directors has approved the formation of an ESG Committee to further enrich our efforts on environmental, social and governance matters, including our Hometown Strong program and our Net Zero commitment.
Our liquidity position remains strong with an adjusted EBITDA net leverage ratio at 1.5x.
In driving for profitable growth, we are committing to an expansion in our fresh operations, a new protein conversion plant, and a new state-of-the-art prepared foods plant.

“Throughout the second quarter, we emphasized discipline and ownership throughout all aspects of our strategy and organization,” said Fabio Sandri, Chief Executive Officer of Pilgrim’s.As a result, second quarter sales grew over 27% and Adjusted EBITDA was up almost 68% from last year. I am continually impressed with our team’s determination to drive operational excellence to mitigate inflationary headwinds and work with Key Customers to profitably grow our business.
“Our results continue to reflect the benefits of our diversified US portfolio. Investments in automation and in our hourly team members and their communities led to significant progress in net staffing levels, enabling our operations to realize the benefits of strong market fundamentals. Moreover, our overall demand in retail and foodservice remained robust given our emphasis on Key Customers and our diversified product portfolio. In addition, our retail branded business maintained its momentum, as Just Bare® and Pilgrim’s® continued their strong growth trajectory.
“Our UK and European business continued to recover through enhanced partnerships with Key Customers, improved cost recovery, and accelerated implementation of supply chain solutions. The team will continue to identify ways to leverage our diverse portfolio of offerings and further optimize our production capabilities to alleviate continual cost escalation and consistently innovate to drive profitable growth in a difficult economic environment.
“Our Mexican operations were impacted by seasonal diseases that reduced our efficiency on the live production at our locations. Nonetheless, the team leveraged our diverse geographic footprint to ensure sufficient supply, driving superior service for Key Customers. Moving forward, the team will continue to monitor conditions and adjust accordingly to grow the business.
“Given our market momentum and focus on profitable growth, we are announcing a number of new investments in the US. These investments include an expansion of our Athens, Georgia facility, which will enhance our service levels and support growth for a Key Customer. It also includes funding for operational excellence improvements via automation throughout our US footprint and construction of a protein conversion plant for pet food ingredients in Georgia. Also, we are committing to the development of a Prepared Foods facility in the Southeast USA to cultivate our branded growth, further diversifying our portfolio. Taken together, these investments will simultaneously enable sufficient capacity for top line growth with our Key Customers, enhance operating margins, create value for our shareholders, and provide opportunities for a better future for our team members.
“We remain focused on being the best and most respected company in our industry and I am confident our team will continue to drive disciplined execution of our strategy and cultivate robust growth throughout this volatile environment.”

PILGRIM’S PRIDE CORPORATION
Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation
(Unaudited)

“EBITDA” is defined as the sum of net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. “Adjusted EBITDA” is calculated by adding to EBITDA certain items of expense and deducting from EBITDA certain items of income that we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating performance consisting of: (1) foreign currency transaction losses, (2) transaction costs related to business acquisitions, (3) costs related to the DOJ agreement and litigation settlements, (4) initial insurance recoveries for Mayfield, Kentucky tornado property damage losses, (5) deconsolidation of subsidiary and (6) net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests. EBITDA is presented because it is used by management and we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties, in addition to and not in lieu of results prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“U.S. GAAP”), to compare the performance of companies. We believe investors would be interested in our Adjusted EBITDA because this is how our management analyzes EBITDA applicable to continuing operations. The Company also believes that Adjusted EBITDA, in combination with the Company’s financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, provides investors with additional perspective regarding the impact of certain significant items on EBITDA and facilitates a more direct comparison of its performance with its competitors. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measurements of financial performance under U.S. GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for an analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as indicators of our operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These limitations should be compensated for by relying primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only on a supplemental basis.

(b)The Company measures the financial statements of its Mexico reportable segment as if the U.S. dollar were the functional currency. Accordingly, we remeasure assets and liabilities, other than nonmonetary assets, of the Mexico reportable segment at current exchange rates. We remeasure nonmonetary assets using the historical exchange rate in effect on the date of each asset’s acquisition. Currency exchange gains or losses resulting from these remeasurements, as well as, from our U.K. and Europe reportable segment are included in the line item Foreign currency transaction losses in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.
(c)Transaction costs related to acquisitions includes those charges that are incurred in conjunction with business acquisitions.
(d)On October 13, 2020, Pilgrims announced that we entered into a plea agreement (the “Plea Agreement”) with the DOJ. As a result of the Plea Agreement, we recognized a fine of $110.5 million. On February 23, 2021, the Colorado Court approved the Plea Agreement and assessed a fine of $107.9 million. The difference between the original accrual and the payment is recorded in DOJ agreement and litigation settlements in the three months ended March 28, 2021. The additional expense recognized in the three and six months ended June 27, 2021 and June 26, 2022 was offset by amounts recognized in anticipation of probable settlements in ongoing litigation.
(e)This represents initial insurance recoveries for the property damage losses incurred as a result of the tornado in Mayfield, KY in December 2021.
(f)This represents a gain recognized as a result of deconsolidation of a subsidiary.

Adjusted net income attributable to Pilgrim's Pride Corporation (“Pilgrim's”) is calculated by adding to Net income (loss) attributable to Pilgrim's certain items of expense and deducting from Net income (loss) attributable to Pilgrim's certain items of income, as shown below in the table. Adjusted net income attributable to Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation per common diluted share is presented because it is used by management, and we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties, in addition to and not in lieu of results prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP, to compare the performance of companies. Management also believe that this non-U.S. GAAP financial measure, in combination with our financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, provides investors with additional perspective regarding the impact of such charges on net income attributable to Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation per common diluted share.
