CEO Comments

Mark Clouse, Campbell’s President and CEO, said, “The fourth quarter was a positive finish to a solid year during which we successfully navigated a difficult environment, made significant progress advancing our strategic plan and addressed the executional pressures we experienced in the third quarter. Our growth in adjusted EPS during fiscal 2021 on comparable organic sales, coupled with our expanded share growth across the majority of our core categories, demonstrated strong performance especially when compared to the significant growth in the prior year. As we head into fiscal 2022, we have robust in-market momentum on our brands, strong plans to manage inflation, and a talented and committed team to lead through what we expect to be a very challenging environment."

Fourth-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales decreased 11% versus the prior year to $1.87 billion, but increased 5% versus the comparable fiscal 2019 period. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the additional week and the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, decreased 4% versus the prior year, which was above the company's expectations, but increased 9% versus the comparable fiscal 2019 period. The decline versus the prior year was driven by a 5% decrease in volume and mix primarily as a result of cycling both the elevated demand in food purchases for at-home consumption and the partial retailer inventory recovery in the prior year. Lower promotional spending and favorable price and sales allowances each contributed a 1% increase to net sales versus the year-ago period.

As anticipated, gross margin decreased to 31.3% from 35.4% last year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross margin decreased 420 basis points to 31.4% as higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs were partially offset by supply chain productivity improvements and cost savings initiatives.

Marketing and selling expenses decreased 34% to $175 million. Excluding items impacting comparability in the current year, adjusted marketing and selling decreased 34% driven by lower advertising and consumer promotion expense (A&C), lower selling expenses, lower marketing overhead costs, and lower incentive compensation. Total A&C was reduced from the elevated, pandemic driven level of investment in the prior year to generally in-line with the fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 A&C level.

Administrative expenses decreased 22% to $146 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses decreased by $30 million, or 18%, to $139 million with approximately one half of the decrease driven by the estimated impact from the additional week in the prior-year quarter. The balance of the decrease reflects lower general administrative costs, higher charitable contributions in the prior year and benefits of cost savings initiatives, partially offset by higher information technology costs.

Other income was $168 million compared to other expenses of $106 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted other income was $14 million compared to $15 million in the prior year.

As reported EBIT increased to $411 million from $167 million in the prior year. Fiscal 2019 as reported EBIT was $83 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 13% compared to the prior year to $267 million primarily due to sales volume declines, including the impact from the additional week in the prior-year quarter, and lower adjusted gross margin performance, partially offset by lower adjusted marketing and selling expenses and lower adjusted administrative expenses. Fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 adjusted EBIT was $252 million.

Net interest expense was $47 million compared to $60 million in the prior year reflecting lower levels of debt in the current year and the impact from the additional week in the prior year. The tax rate was 20.9% as compared to 19.6% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate increased 180 basis points to 24.1% from 22.3%.

As reported EPS from continuing operations were $0.95 per share compared to $0.28 per share in the prior year. Fiscal 2019 as reported EPS from continuing operations was a loss of $0.02 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations decreased $0.08, or 13%, compared to the prior year to $0.55 ahead of expectations and primarily reflecting the decrease in adjusted EBIT, including an estimated $0.04 adjusted EPS impact from the additional week in fiscal 2020, partially offset by lower interest expense. Fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 adjusted EPS from continuing operations were $0.42 per share.

Full-Year Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales decreased 2% to $8.48 billion and increased 5% compared to fiscal 2019. Net sales in both Meals & Beverages and Snacks each declined 2% versus prior year. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the additional week, divestitures and the impact of currency, were comparable to the prior year and increased 6% compared to fiscal 2019. In fiscal 2021, Meals & Beverages organic net sales decreased 1% compared to prior year, driven by declines in foodservice, partially offset by growth in V8 beverages. In Snacks, organic net sales were flat as gains in the salty snacks portfolio, including Late July snacks and Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, and in Goldfish crackers were offset by declines in Lance sandwich crackers and in partner brands within the Snyder's-Lance portfolio.

As reported EBIT increased 40% compared to the prior year to $1.55 billion. Fiscal 2019 as reported EBIT was $979 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 3% compared to the prior year to $1.41 billion, reflecting lower adjusted gross margin performance and lower sales volume, including the impact from the additional week, partially offset by lower adjusted marketing and selling expenses and higher adjusted other income. Full-year fiscal 2019 adjusted EBIT was $1.27 billion.

Net interest expense was $209 million compared to $341 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in the prior year, adjusted net interest expense decreased 21% from $266 million in the prior year to $209 million reflecting lower levels of debt. The tax rate was 24.6% as compared to 22.7% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate of 24.1% was comparable to the prior year.

The company reported EPS from continuing operations of $3.30 per share compared to $1.95 per share in the prior year. Fiscal 2019 reported EPS from continuing operations were $1.57 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations increased 1% compared to the prior year to $2.98 per share. Full-year fiscal 2019 adjusted EPS from continuing operations were $2.30 per share.

Cash flows from operations decreased from $1.40 billion in the prior year to $1.04 billion primarily due to changes in working capital, mostly from a significant increase in accounts payable in the prior year and lower accrued liabilities in the current year. Capital investments were $275 million compared to $299 million in the prior year. The decline was primarily due to capital expenditures associated with discontinued operations in the prior year. In line with the company’s commitment to returning value to shareholders, the company paid $439 million of cash dividends.

Cost Savings Program from Continuing Operations

In the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2021, Campbell achieved $25 million and $80 million in savings, respectively, under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder’s-Lance synergies, bringing total program-to-date savings to approximately $805 million. Campbell remains on track to deliver annualized savings of $850 million by the end of fiscal 2022.

Share Repurchases

Today, the Board of Directors approved a $500 million strategic share repurchase program. The program has no expiration date and is in addition to the $250 million anti-dilutive share repurchase program announced during the previous quarter. The company expects to fund the repurchases out of its existing cash flow generation and repurchases may be made in open market or privately negotiated transactions. The $500 million strategic share repurchase program replaces the suspended $1.5 billion program, which has been cancelled.

Full-Year Fiscal 2022 Guidance

Following on our fiscal 2021 performance, the company is providing full-year fiscal 2022 guidance which reflects the continued cycling of elevated demand, accelerating inflationary pressures and a constrained labor market partially mitigated by continued in-market momentum and well-executed pricing and productivity plans.

The company expects the first quarter to be the most challenging as the company continues to cycle the elevated sales and scale efficiency from a year ago, while pricing actions begin to take hold. First half margins will continue to be impacted by transitional headwinds, with comparisons easing and sequential improvement in the second half of the fiscal year versus year ago. The company expects core inflation of high single digits for the year with a more pronounced impact in the second half which will partially mitigate the second half recovery. The company expects to manage these inflationary headwinds with positive net price realization, supply chain productivity improvements, and cost savings initiatives. All in, the company expects year-over-year EBIT margin improvement in the second half of the year.

Based on the foregoing, the company is providing full-year fiscal 2022 guidance as set forth in the table below:

Note: A non-GAAP reconciliation is not provided for fiscal 2022 guidance as the company is unable to reasonably estimate the full-year financial impact of mark-to-market adjustments on pension and postretirement plans because these impacts are dependent on future changes in market conditions. The inability to predict the amount and timing of these future items makes a detailed reconciliation of these forward-looking financial measures impracticable.

The sale of Plum baby food and snacks business which was divested on May 3, 2021, is estimated to have an impact of 1 percentage point on net sales in fiscal 2022. Fiscal 2021 results include a $0.12 benefit from mark-to-market on outstanding commodity hedges and an estimated $0.02 adjusted EPS contribution from the Plum baby food and snacks business.

Note: A detailed reconciliation of the reported (GAAP) net sales to organic net sales is included at the end of this news release.

Meals & Beverages

Net sales in the quarter decreased 16%. Excluding the impact from the additional week in the prior year, the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, and the favorable impact from currency, organic net sales decreased 9% primarily due to declines across U.S. retail products, including U.S. soup, Prego pasta sauces and Pace Mexican sauces. Volume decreased in U.S. retail as a result of cycling the partial retailer inventory recovery and increased demand in food purchases for at-home consumption in the prior-year quarter. Sales of U.S. soup decreased 21%, cycling a 52% increase in the prior-year quarter, due to volume declines in condensed soups, ready-to-serve soups and broth, and a 7-point impact from the additional week in the prior year. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, Meals & Beverages organic net sales increased 10%.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter decreased 30%. The decrease was primarily due to sales volume declines, including the impact from the additional week, and lower gross margin performance partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses, as well as lower administrative expenses. Gross margin performance was impacted by higher other supply chain costs and cost inflation, as well as unfavorable product mix, partially offset by the benefits of supply chain productivity improvements.

Snacks

Net sales in the quarter decreased 6%. Excluding the impact from the additional week, organic net sales increased 1%, driven by volume gains in Goldfish crackers and the salty snacks portfolio, including Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, Snyder's of Hanover pretzels and Cape Cod potato chips, partially offset by declines in partner brands and fresh bakery. Favorable price and sales allowances and lower promotional spending also contributed to sales growth. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, organic net sales increased 7%.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter increased 7% driven by lower marketing and selling expenses, partially offset by sales volume declines, including the impact from the additional week, and lower gross margin performance. Gross margin performance was impacted by higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs, partially offset by the benefits of cost savings initiatives, supply chain productivity improvements, favorable price and sales allowances, and lower promotional spending.

Corporate

Corporate income was $137 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to expense of $154 million in the prior year. Corporate income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 included pension and postretirement mark-to-market gains of $165 million, a loss on divestitures of $11 million, and costs of $10 million related to cost savings initiatives. Corporate expense in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 included pension and postretirement mark-to-market losses of $121 million and costs of $20 million related to cost savings initiatives. Excluding these amounts, the remaining $6 million decrease in expenses was primary due to higher charitable contributions in the prior year and lower administrative expenses, partially offset by lower mark-to-market gains on outstanding commodity hedges in the current year.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Fiscal Year Ended August 1, 2021

Campbell Soup Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission in certain communications. These non-GAAP financial measures are measures of performance not defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and should be considered in addition to, not in lieu of, GAAP reported measures. Management believes that also presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures provides additional information to facilitate comparison of the company's historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results, and provides transparency on how the company evaluates its business. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the company's performance.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales are net sales excluding the impact of currency, acquisitions, divestitures, and the additional week in fiscal 2020. Management believes that excluding these items, which are not part of the ongoing business, improves the comparability of year-to-year results. A reconciliation of net sales as reported to organic net sales follows.

Items Impacting Earnings

Adjusted Net earnings are net earnings excluding the impact of restructuring charges and related costs, mark-to-market adjustments for defined benefit pension and postretirement plans, gains or losses on divestitures, pension settlement gains or charges, deferred tax charge related to a legal entity reorganization, investment losses, losses on the extinguishment of debt, transition tax charge from enacted tax law changes and impairment charges. Management believes that financial information excluding certain items that are not considered to reflect the ongoing operating results, such as those listed below, improves the comparability of year-to-year results. Consequently, management believes that investors may be able to better understand its results excluding these items.
