PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Kraft Heinz Company (NASDAQ: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported first quarter 2016 financial results that reflected improved net sales performance and significant cost savings amid the ongoing integration of Kraft and Heinz.

“We've had a solid start to the year. Our savings are coming in faster than anticipated and we're performing better where it matters most, with our customers and consumers in the marketplace,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Bernardo Hees. “But we still have a lot of work ahead. Consumption trends in a number of our core categories remain challenging and we're entering a critical phase in our North American supply chain integration. As we implement our plans, we will keep our focus on profitable growth while continuing to put our consumers first.”

Adjusted EPS(2) $ 0.73 $ 0.53 37.7 %

Organic Net Sales increased 1.1 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 0.3 percentage points despite deflation in key commodities in the United States and Canada(3), primarily dairy and coffee. Volume/mix increased 0.8 percentage points due to strong growth in condiments and sauces globally, Lunchables and P3, and United States foodservice that was partially offset by lower shipments of ready-to-drink beverages in the United States.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 21.3 percent versus the year-ago period to $2.0 billion, despite a negative 6.0 percentage point impact from currency, primarily due to gains from cost savings initiatives(4) and favorable pricing net of commodity costs. Adjusted EPS increased 37.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $0.73, primarily reflecting the growth in Adjusted EBITDA.

Q1 2016 Business Segment Highlights

Segment Adjusted EBITDA(2,5) 1,493 1,123 32.9 %
 

United States net sales were $4.7 billion, up 0.2 percent versus pro forma net sales for the year-ago period. Pricing increased 0.1 percentage points despite deflation in key commodities, primarily dairy and coffee. Volume/mix increased 0.1 percentage points, primarily reflecting gains from innovation in Lunchables and P3, whitespace expansion in foodservice and gains in coffee that were offset by lower shipments of ready-to-drink beverages, bacon and frozen nutritional meals.

United States Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 32.9 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.5 billion, driven by gains from cost savings initiatives and favorable pricing net of commodity costs that were partially offset by volume declines in ready-to-drink beverages and frozen nutritional meals.

Canada

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change
April 3, 2016   March 29, 2015 Actual   Currency   Divestitures   Organic
(in millions)
Pro forma net sales(2) $ 504 $ 551 (8.5 )% (10.0) pp 0.0 pp 1.5 %
Segment Adjusted EBITDA(2) 151 113 33.6 %
 

Canada net sales were $504 million, down 8.5 percent versus pro forma net sales for the year-ago period, primarily due to a negative 10.0 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales increased 1.5 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 3.7 percentage points, despite deflation in key commodities, due to significant pricing to offset higher input costs in local currency. Volume/mix decreased 2.2 percentage points as growth in condiments and sauces was more than offset by a decline in cheese due to reduced promotional activity versus the prior year as well as lower coffee and foodservice shipments.

Canada Segment Adjusted EBITDA increased 33.6 percent versus the year-ago period to $151 million, despite a negative 14.2 percentage point impact from currency. Adjusted EBITDA growth was driven by gains from cost savings initiatives and favorable pricing net of higher local input costs that were partially offset by unfavorable volume/mix.

Europe

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change
April 3, 2016   March 29, 2015 Actual   Currency   Divestitures   Organic
(in millions)
Pro forma net sales(2,5) $ 553 $ 626 (11.7 )% (3.9 ) pp (4.1 ) pp (3.7 )%
Segment Adjusted EBITDA(2,5) 177 214 (17.3 )%
 

Europe net sales were $553 million, down 11.7 percent versus pro forma net sales for the year-ago period, primarily due to a negative 4.1 percentage point impact from divestitures and a negative 3.9 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales decreased 3.7 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing decreased 2.9 percentage points primarily driven by increased promotional activity in soup and beans in the UK versus the prior year. Volume/mix declined 0.8 percentage points primarily due to lower shipments in infant nutrition in the UK and Italy as well as soup in the UK, partially offset by growth in beans in the UK as well as condiments and sauces across Europe.

Europe Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 17.3 percent versus the year-ago period to $177 million, reflecting lower pricing, a negative 3.7 percentage point impact from currency and an increase in marketing investments.

Rest of World(6)

  For the Three Months Ended   Year-over-year Change
April 3, 2016   March 29, 2015 Actual   Currency   Divestitures   Organic

Segment Adjusted EBITDA(2,5) 167 190 (12.1 )%
 

Rest of World net sales were $798 million, down 15.6 percent versus pro forma net sales for the year-ago period, due to a negative 26.0 percentage point impact from currency, including a negative 17.0 percentage point impact from the devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar in June 2015. Organic Net Sales increased 10.4 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 2.1 percentage points, primarily driven by pricing to offset higher input costs in local currency in Latin America. Volume/mix increased 8.3 percentage points due to strong growth in condiments and sauces across all regions as well as beverage gains in Indonesia.

Rest of World Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 12.1 percent versus the year-ago period to $167 million primarily due to a negative 38.2 percentage point impact from currency, including a negative 29.5 percentage point impact from the devaluation of the Venezuelan bolivar in June 2015. Excluding the impact from currency, Adjusted EBITDA growth was primarily driven by favorable volume/mix.

This press release contains a number of forward-looking statements. Words such as “anticipate,” “remain,” “enter,” “implement,” "position,” “believe,” “will,” and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company's plans, investments, execution, growth and integration. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and beyond the Company's control.

Important factors that may affect the Company's business and operations and that may cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, increased competition; the Company's ability to maintain, extend and expand its reputation and brand image; the Company's ability to differentiate its products from other brands; the consolidation of retail customers; the Company's ability to predict, identify and interpret changes in consumer preferences and demand; the Company's ability to drive revenue growth in its key product categories, increase its market share, or add products; an impairment of the carrying value of goodwill or other indefinite-lived intangible assets; volatility in commodity, energy and other input costs; changes in the Company's management team or other key personnel; the Company's inability to realize the anticipated benefits from the Company's cost savings initiatives; changes in relationships with significant customers and suppliers; execution of the Company's international expansion strategy; changes in laws and regulations; legal claims or other regulatory enforcement actions; product recalls or product liability claims; unanticipated business disruptions; failure to successfully integrate the Company; the Company's ability to complete or realize the benefits from potential and completed acquisitions, alliances, divestitures or joint ventures; economic and political conditions in the nations in which the Company operates; the volatility of capital markets; increased pension, labor and people-related expenses; volatility in the market value of all or a portion of the derivatives that the Company uses; exchange rate fluctuations; disruptions in information technology networks and systems; the Company's inability to protect intellectual property rights; impacts of natural events in the locations in which the Company or its customers, suppliers or regulators operate; the Company's indebtedness and ability to pay such indebtedness; the Company's dividend payments on its Series A Preferred Stock; tax law changes or interpretations; pricing actions; and other factors.

The Company disclaims and does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement in this press release, except as required by applicable law or regulation.

Unaudited Pro Forma Condensed Combined Financial Information

The unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial information (the “pro forma financial information”) presented in this release illustrates the estimated effects of the merger (the “2015 Merger”) consummated on July 2, 2015 (the “2015 Merger Date”) of Kraft Foods Group, Inc. (“Kraft”) with and into a wholly-owned subsidiary of H.J. Heinz Holding Corporation (“Heinz”), the related equity investments and common stock conversion, the application of the acquisition method of accounting, and conformance of accounting policies. The pro forma financial information is presented as if the 2015 Merger had been consummated on December 30, 2013, the first business day of the Company’s 2014 fiscal year, and combines the historical results of Kraft and Heinz. For additional information on the 2015 Merger, please refer to the Company’s filings with the SEC.

The pro forma financial information was prepared using the acquisition method of accounting, which requires, among other things, that assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination be recognized at their fair values as of the completion of the acquisition. The Company utilized estimated fair values at the closing date of the 2015 Merger for the preliminary allocation of consideration to the net tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The Company's purchase price allocation is substantially complete with the exception of identifiable intangible assets, certain income tax accounts and goodwill. During the measurement period, the Company will continue to obtain information to assist in determining the fair value of net assets acquired, which may differ materially from these preliminary estimates.

The historical consolidated financial statements have been adjusted in the accompanying pro forma financial information to give effect to unaudited pro forma events that are (1) directly attributable to the 2015 Merger, (2) factually supportable and (3) expected to have a continuing impact on the results of operations of the combined company.

The pro forma financial information has been prepared based upon currently available information and assumptions deemed appropriate by management. This pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of what the Company’s results of operations actually would have been had the 2015 Merger been completed as of December 30, 2013. In addition, the pro forma financial information is not indicative of future results or current financial conditions and does not reflect any additional anticipated synergies, operating efficiencies, cost savings or any integration costs that may result from the 2015 Merger.

This pro forma financial information should be read in conjunction with historical financial statements and accompanying notes filed with the SEC. Certain reclassifications have been made to the historical Kraft and Heinz results to align accounting policies and eliminate intercompany sales in all periods presented.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial information, the Company has presented Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures provided should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, financial measures prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) that are presented in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures presented may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, and other companies may not define these non-GAAP financial measures in the same way. These measures are not substitutes for their comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, such as net sales, operating income, diluted earnings per share, or other measures prescribed by U.S. GAAP, and there are limitations to using non-GAAP financial measures.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assist in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis for purposes of business decision making by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's core operations. Management believes that presenting the Company's non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors because it (i) provides investors with meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain items, (ii) permits investors to view performance using the same tools that management uses to budget, make operating and strategic decisions, and evaluate historical performance, and (iii) otherwise provides supplemental information that may be useful to investors in evaluating the Company's results. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations to those measures, provides investors with additional understanding of the factors and trends affecting the Company's business than could be obtained absent these disclosures.

Organic Net Sales is defined as net sales excluding, when they occur, the impact of acquisitions, currency, divestitures and a 53rd week of shipments. The Company calculates the impact of currency on net sales by holding exchange rates constant at the previous year's exchange rate, with the exception of Venezuela following the Company's June 28, 2015 currency devaluation, for which the Company calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Organic Net Sales for any period prior to the 2015 Merger Date includes the operating results of Kraft on a pro forma basis, as if Kraft had been acquired as of December 30, 2013. Organic Net Sales is a tool intended to assist management in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis for purposes of business decision making by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's core operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, other expense/(income), net, provision for/(benefit from) income taxes, depreciation and amortization (excluding integration and restructuring expenses) (including amortization of postretirement benefit plans prior service credits); excluding, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, merger costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, nonmonetary currency devaluation, equity award compensation expense (excluding integration and restructuring expenses), impairment losses, and losses/(gains) on the sale of a business. Adjusted EBITDA for any period prior to the 2015 Merger Date includes the operating results of Kraft on a pro forma basis, as if Kraft had been acquired as of December 30, 2013. Adjusted EBITDA is a tool intended to assist management in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis for purposes of business decision making by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's core operations.

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted earnings per share excluding, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, merger costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, losses/(gains) on the sale of a business, nonmonetary currency devaluation and timing impacts of preferred stock dividends. Adjusted EPS for any period prior to the 2015 Merger Date includes the operating results of Kraft on a pro forma basis, as if Kraft had been acquired as of December 30, 2013. Management uses Adjusted EPS to assess operating performance on a consistent basis.

See the attached schedules for supplemental financial data, which includes the financial information, the non-GAAP financial measures and corresponding reconciliations for the relevant periods.
