PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Kraft Heinz Company (Nasdaq: KHC) (“Kraft Heinz” or the “Company”) today reported third quarter 2019 financial results that reflected a one-time gain on the sale of the Company's Canadian natural cheese business, lower net sales, and higher input costs.

“While our third-quarter results remain below our potential, we showed sequential improvement versus the first half, and I believe we are beginning to operate the business better,” said Kraft Heinz CEO Miguel Patricio. "We are making good progress in identifying and addressing the root causes of past performance, as well as setting our strategic direction. Although there is still much work ahead, we’re encouraged by our improving performance, and are even more confident in our ability to turn around the Company and set a path of long term growth and profitability.”

Net sales were $6.1 billion, down 4.8 percent versus the year-ago period, including a negative 2.0 percentage point impact from divestitures and an unfavorable 1.7 percentage point impact from currency. Organic Net Sales(1) decreased 1.1 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 1.0 percent versus the prior year period, reflecting higher pricing in the United States, Rest of World and EMEA segments that more than offset lower pricing in Canada. Volume/mix was 2.1 percentage points below the prior year period as global growth in condiments and sauces was more than offset by lower shipments in the United States.

Net income attributable to common shareholders increased to $899 million and diluted EPS increased to $0.74, primarily reflecting the gain on the sale of Canadian natural cheese business and a non-cash impairment charge in the prior year period that was partially offset by debt extinguishment costs associated with the tender offers. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 7.8 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.5 billion, including 3.2 percentage point impact from unfavorable currency and a negative 1.4 percentage point impact from divestitures. Excluding these factors, the decrease was driven by declines in the United States and Canada, as well as higher general corporate expenses that more than offset growth in EMEA. Adjusted EPS decreased 9.2% percent to $0.69, reflecting lower Adjusted EBITDA, higher taxes on adjusted earnings in the current period, and lower interest expense versus the year-ago period.

United States net sales were $4.4 billion, down 1.6 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing increased 1.5 percentage points, driven by price increases across several categories, including Oscar Mayer cold cuts, Philadelphia cream cheese, macaroni & cheese, and Lunchables. This more than offset pricing to offset lower key commodity(2) costs in coffee and nuts. Volume/mix decreased 3.1 percentage points, primarily driven by lower retail takeaway in natural cheese, cold cuts and Lunchables, as well as unfavorable changes in retail inventory levels versus the prior year period. This more than offset consumption-led growth in condiments and sauces, and, to a lesser extent, nuts.

United States Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 1.8 percent versus the year-ago period to $1.2 billion, driven by unfavorable volume/mix that more than offset higher pricing and favorable timing of marketing expenses versus the prior year period.

Canada net sales were $415 million, 21.1 percent lower than the year-ago period, including a negative 19.8 percentage point impact from the Canadian natural cheese divestiture and a 0.8 percentage point unfavorable impact from currency. Organic Net Sales decreased 0.5 percent versus the year-ago period. Pricing declined 2.6 percentage points, driven by increased promotional activity and unfavorable trade expense in cheese that more than offset higher pricing of macaroni and cheese. Volume/mix increased 2.1 percent, reflecting growth from increased promotional support in cheese and pasta sauce, as well as a partial recovery of retail inventory levels in certain categories. These gains more than offset a decline in macaroni and cheese due to reduced promotional activity and lower coffee shipments versus the prior year period.

Canada Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 25.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $107 million, including a 14.9 percentage point impact from a divestiture and a 0.8 percentage point unfavorable impact from currency. Excluding the impact of these factors, the decrease versus the prior year was driven by lower pricing and higher input costs.

Rest of World Segment Adjusted EBITDA decreased 32.7 percent versus the year-ago period to $100 million, due to a negative 31.1 percentage point impact from currency, as well as higher supply chain costs and lower Organic Net Sales in Asia Pacific.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures provided should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) that are presented in this press release.

To supplement the financial information, the Company has presented Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures. 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 GAAP financial measures, such as net sales, net income/(loss), diluted earnings per share, or other measures prescribed by 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 underlying operations. Management believes that presenting the Company's non-GAAP financial measures (i.e., Organic Net Sales, Adjusted EBITDA, Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS) 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 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 currency, acquisitions and 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 highly inflationary subsidiaries, for which the Company calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Organic Net Sales is a tool that can assist management and investors in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) from continuing operations before interest expense, other expense/(income), provision for/(benefit from) income taxes, and depreciation and amortization (excluding integration and restructuring expenses); in addition to these adjustments, the Company excludes, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, and equity award compensation expense (excluding integration and restructuring expenses). The Company also presents Adjusted EBITDA on a constant currency basis. The Company calculates the impact of currency on Adjusted EBITDA by holding exchange rates constant at the previous year's exchange rate, with the exception of highly inflationary subsidiaries, for which it calculates the previous year's results using the current year's exchange rate. Adjusted EBITDA and Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA are tools that can assist management and investors in comparing the Company's performance on a consistent basis by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect the Company's underlying operations.

Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted earnings per share excluding, when they occur, the impacts of integration and restructuring expenses, deal costs, unrealized losses/(gains) on commodity hedges, impairment losses, losses/(gains) on the sale of a business, other losses/(gains) related to acquisitions and divestitures (e.g., tax and hedging impacts), nonmonetary currency devaluation (e.g., remeasurement gains and losses), debt prepayment and extinguishment costs, and U.S. Tax Reform discrete income tax expense/(benefit), and including when they occur, adjustments to reflect preferred stock dividend payments on an accrual basis. The Company believes Adjusted EPS provides important comparability of underlying operating results, allowing investors and management 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 to the comparable GAAP financial measures for the relevant periods.
