CAMDEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) today reported its fourth-quarter and full-year results for fiscal 2019.

CEO Perspective

Mark Clouse, Campbell’s President and CEO, stated, “Our strong fourth-quarter results culminated a year of steady, positive performance for Campbell. We delivered consistent results and met or exceeded expectations for four consecutive quarters this year. We made significant progress against our 2019 strategic initiatives, namely: improving our in-market performance; overdelivering our cost savings programs; strengthening our relationships with key retailers; focusing the portfolio on our two core businesses in North America; and, completing the divestiture of Campbell Fresh and announcing the divestiture of Campbell International. We have created a solid foundation to build upon in fiscal 2020.”

Presentation of Results

On July 12, 2019, the company announced that it entered into an agreement to sell the Kelsen Group and on August 2, 2019, that it entered into an agreement to sell Arnott’s and certain of Campbell’s International operations. These transactions are expected to close in the first half of fiscal 2020. This portfolio of businesses referred to as Campbell International, which was previously included in the Global Biscuits and Snacks segment, is now reported as discontinued operations along with Campbell Fresh. Effective as of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, Campbell is reporting operating results in two segments: Meals & Beverages; and Snacks. A detailed description of the segments is included at the end of this news release.

The following table is a summary of the fourth-quarter and full-year results for sales, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) and EPS from continuing operations and EPS for total company. For ease of comparison to the company’s most recent fiscal 2019 sales and earnings guidance, the company has also provided results for sales, EBIT and EPS from continuing operations and the results of Campbell International that this quarter the company is referring to as Combined Results. Total Company Results listed below include continuing and discontinued operations. Prior-year results have been adjusted to conform to the current-year presentation. A detailed reconciliation of the reported (GAAP) financial information to the non-GAAP information is included at the end of this news release.

Fourth-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

Sales increased 2 percent to $1.8 billion driven by gains in Snacks, as well as Meals & Beverages.

Gross margin increased from 31.4 percent to 34.0 percent. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross margin increased 0.6 percentage points to 33.7 percent. The increase in adjusted gross margin was driven primarily by supply chain productivity improvements, the benefits from cost savings initiatives and the favorable impact from lapping costs associated with the July 2018 voluntary recall of Flavor Blasted Goldfish crackers, partly offset by cost inflation.

Marketing and selling expenses increased 10 percent to $195 million driven primarily by increased marketing investment on Snacks and higher incentive compensation, partly offset by benefits of cost savings initiatives. Administrative expenses increased 4 percent to $166 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses increased 5 percent to $139 million primarily due to higher incentive compensation expense, partly offset by the benefits from cost savings initiatives.

Other expenses were $128 million as compared to income of $66 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, other income increased from $3 million in the prior year to $10 million.

As reported EBIT was $83 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 1 percent to $252 million as sales gains and gross margin improvement were partly offset by higher marketing and selling expenses.

Net interest expense was $84 million compared to $89 million in the prior year. Tax expense decreased from $37 million in the prior year to $4 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate decreased 4.2 percentage points from 29.8 percent to 25.6 percent reflecting a lower U.S. federal tax rate.

The company reported a loss from continuing operations of $0.02 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations increased 14 percent to $0.42 per share primarily reflecting a lower adjusted tax rate.

Full-Year Results from Continuing Operations

Sales increased 23 percent to $8.1 billion reflecting the benefit from the acquisitions of Snyder’s-Lance and Pacific Foods. Organic sales were comparable to the prior year.

As reported EBIT decreased 3 percent to $979 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 1 percent to $1.266 billion reflecting incremental earnings from the acquisitions mostly offset by declines in the base business.

The company reported EPS from continuing operations of $1.57 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations decreased 8 percent to $2.30 per share reflecting higher adjusted net interest expense, partly offset by a lower adjusted tax rate.

Cash Flow Results

Cash flow from operations increased to $1.4 billion from $1.3 billion a year ago due primarily to significant improvements from the company’s working capital management efforts. In line with the company’s commitment to returning value to shareholders, the company paid $423 million of cash dividends in fiscal 2019 reflecting the quarterly dividend rate of $0.35 per share.

Fiscal 2020 Guidance for Continuing Operations

As shown in the table below, the company expects net sales to grow by 1 to 3 percent, adjusted EBIT to grow by 2 to 4 percent and adjusted EPS to grow by 9 to 11 percent. Fiscal 2020 comprises 53 weeks, one additional week compared to fiscal 2019. The benefit of the 53rd week is included in the fiscal 2020 guidance and is estimated to be worth 2 points of net sales, adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS. Expected net proceeds of approximately $3 billion from the divestitures of Campbell Fresh and Campbell International are being used to reduce debt. This guidance takes into account the impact of the paydown on the company’s interest expense in fiscal 2020.

Cost Savings Program from Continuing Operations

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, Campbell achieved $45 million in savings under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder’s-Lance synergies, bringing total program-to-date savings to $560 million. Total fiscal 2019 savings of $165 million were ahead of expectations, helping to offset other cost pressures. As previously announced, Campbell is targeting cumulative annualized savings of $850 million by the end of fiscal 2022.

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

Sales in the quarter of $813 million were comparable to the prior year. Organic sales increased 1 percent reflecting solid performance in U.S. soup, Prego pasta sauces and Pace Mexican sauces, partly offset by declines in V8 beverages. Sales of U.S. soup increased 3 percent as gains in ready-to-serve and condensed soups were offset by declines in broth.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter decreased 3 percent to $151 million. The decrease was driven primarily by cost inflation and higher incentive compensation expense, partly offset by supply chain productivity gains, the benefits of cost savings initiatives and the benefit of recent pricing actions.

Snacks

Sales in the quarter increased 3 percent to $967 million. Organic sales increased 4 percent. This performance reflects continued momentum in Pepperidge Farm bakery products, Kettle Brand potato chips, Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps, and Late July snacks, as well as gains in Goldfish crackers, as the company laps the negative impact of the voluntary recall in July 2018.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter increased 2 percent to $133 million. The increase was driven primarily by sales gains and the benefit of cost savings initiatives, including supply chain productivity programs, partly offset by cost inflation, increased marketing spending and higher incentive compensation.

Corporate

Corporate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 included pension and postretirement mark-to-market losses of $122 million, charges related to cost savings initiatives of $22 million, and a non-cash impairment charge of $16 million related to the European chips business. Corporate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 included pension and postretirement mark-to-market gains of $117 million, non-cash impairment charges of $54 million related to the Plum trademark, charges related to cost savings initiatives of $46 million, and transaction and integration costs of $11 million related to the acquisition of Snyder’s-Lance.

Discontinued Operations

The results for Campbell Fresh and Campbell International are reported as discontinued operations. The company completed the divestiture of the Campbell Fresh segment on June 16, 2019. As stated above, the company expects to close the Campbell International transactions in the first half of fiscal 2020. The company reported a loss from discontinued operations for fiscal 2019 of $0.87 per share compared to a loss of $1.53 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted earnings from discontinued operations were $0.31 per share compared to $0.36 per share in the prior year.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Fiscal Year Ended July 28, 2019

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. Beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the results of the Campbell Fresh segment are reported as discontinued operations. Beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the results of the Kelsen Group, Arnott's and certain international businesses (Campbell International), which represent the former international biscuits and snacks operating segment, are reported as discontinued operations. As this is the first quarter presenting Campbell International as discontinued operations, we have provided certain combined financial measures of continuing operations and Campbell International to facilitate comparison of the company’s historical operating results.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales are net sales excluding the impact of currency and acquisitions. 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 and combined net sales follows.

Items Impacting Earnings

The company 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, the company believes that investors may be able to better understand its results excluding these items.

The following items impacted earnings:

 

(1)

In fiscal 2015, the company implemented initiatives to reduce costs and to streamline its organizational structure. In fiscal 2017, the company expanded these cost savings initiatives by further optimizing its supply chain network, primarily in North America, continuing to evolve its operating model to drive efficiencies, and more fully integrating its recent acquisitions. In January 2018, as part of the expanded initiatives, the company authorized additional costs to improve the operational efficiency of its thermal supply chain network in North America by closing its manufacturing facility in Toronto, Ontario, and to optimize its information technology infrastructure by migrating certain applications to the latest cloud technology platform. In August 2018, the company announced that it will continue to streamline its organization, expand its zero-based budgeting efforts and optimize its manufacturing network. In fiscal 2019, the company began to include costs associated with the Snyder's-Lance cost transformation program and integration with these initiatives.

 

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $9 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $27 million in Administrative expenses, $1 million in Marketing and selling expenses, and $1 million in Research and development expenses, and a reduction to Cost of products sold of $7 million (aggregate impact of $24 million after tax, or $.08 per share) in Loss from continuing operations related to these initiatives. In fiscal 2019, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $31 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $62 million in Administrative expenses, $18 million in Cost of products sold, $7 million in Marketing and selling expenses, and $3 million in Research and development expenses (aggregate impact of $92 million after tax, or $.30 per share) in Earnings from continuing operations related to these initiatives. The company also recorded a $1 million pre-tax and after-tax charge in Loss from discontinued operations associated with Campbell Fresh and a $1 million pre-tax and after-tax gain in Loss from discontinued operations associated with Campbell International related to these initiatives. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $1 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $20 million in Administrative expenses, $25 million in Cost of products sold, and $1 million in Marketing and selling expenses (aggregate impact of $34 million after tax, or $.11 per share) in Earnings from continuing operations related to these initiatives.

(2)

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, as part of the company's annual review of intangible assets, the company recognized an impairment charge of $7 million on a trademark and $10 million on goodwill in Kelsen due to a lower long-term outlook for sales and the pending sale of the business. The aggregate impact was $17 million ($12 million after tax, or $.04 per share).

 

In the second quarter of fiscal 2019, interim impairment assessments were performed on the intangible and tangible assets within Campbell Fresh, which includes Garden Fresh Gourmet, Bolthouse Farms carrot and carrot ingredients, and Bolthouse Farms refrigerated beverages and salad dressings, as the company continued to pursue the divestiture of these businesses. The company revised its future outlook for earnings and cash flows for each of these businesses as the divestiture process progressed.

 

The company recorded non-cash impairment charges of $104 million on the tangible assets and $73 million on the intangible assets of Bolthouse Farms carrot and carrot ingredients; $96 million on the intangible assets and $9 million on the tangible assets of Bolthouse Farms refrigerated beverages and salad dressings; and $62 million on the intangible assets and $2 million on the tangible assets of Garden Fresh Gourmet. The aggregate impact of the impairment charges was $346 million, of which $115 million was recorded in Cost of products sold and $231 million in Other expenses / (income), ($264 million after tax, or $.88 per share).

In the third quarter of fiscal 2018, the company performed interim impairment assessments within Campbell Fresh on the deli reporting unit, which includes Garden Fresh Gourmet and the U.S. refrigerated soup business, and the Bolthouse Farms refrigerated beverages and salad dressings reporting unit. Within the deli unit, the company revised its long-term outlook due to the anticipated loss of refrigerated soup business with certain private label customers, as well as the performance of the business. In addition, the operating performance of the Bolthouse Farms refrigerated beverages and salad dressings reporting unit was below expectations. The company revised its long-term outlook for future earnings and cash flows for each of these reporting units. The company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $11 million on the tangible assets and $94 million on the intangible assets ($80 million after tax, or $.27 per share) of the deli reporting unit, and a non-cash impairment charge of $514 million ($417 million after tax, or $1.39 per share) related to the intangible assets of the Bolthouse Farms refrigerated beverages and salad dressings reporting unit. The aggregate impact of the impairment charges was $619 million, of which $11 million was recorded in Cost of products sold and $608 million in Other expenses / (income), ($497 million after tax, or $1.65 per share).

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, the company performed an impairment assessment on the Plum trademark. In fiscal 2018, sales and operating performance were well below expectations due in part to competitive pressure and reduced margins. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, as part of a strategic review initiated by a new leadership team and based on recent performance, the company lowered its long-term outlook for future sales. The company recorded a non-cash impairment charge of $54 million ($41 million after tax, or $.14 per share) in Earnings from continuing operations in Other expenses / (income).
