Hain Celestial Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: HAIN) ("Hain Celestial" or the "Company"), a leading organic and natural products company with operations in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East providing consumers with A Healthier Way of Life™, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2018. The results contained herein are presented with the Hain Pure Protein operating segment being treated as a discontinued operation given the Company's previously announced decision to divest the business, which is expected to be completed during the first half of fiscal year 2019.

The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (PRNewsfoto/The Hain Celestial Group, Inc.)

"We continued to execute on our global strategic objectives, with marketing investments in our core brands and incremental savings and productivity through Project Terra, although a number of cost and operational headwinds in the United States impacted our consolidated annual results," said Irwin D. Simon, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hain Celestial. "Our top priorities in fiscal year 2019 are to return our United States business to growth and to generate increased profitability.  We remain optimistic that the aggressive strategic changes and investments in our go-to-market strategy will fuel our future results and value for our stockholders."

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS1

Summary of Fourth Quarter Results from Continuing Operations2

  • Net sales increased 3% to $619.6 million compared to the prior year period, or a 1% decrease on a constant currency basis, primarily reflecting low double digit net sales increases from the United Kingdom and Rest of World reporting segments, which includes the Canada and Europe operating segments, partially offset by a mid-single digit net sales decrease from the United States reporting segment.

  • Gross margin of 20.2%, a 370 basis point decrease over the prior year period; adjusted gross margin of 21.1%, a 290 basis point decrease over the prior year period as a result of higher trade and promotional investments in the United States and increased freight and commodity costs.
  • Operating income of $16.6 million, an increase of $9.4 million over the prior year period; adjusted operating income of $44.5 million, a $21.3 million decrease over the prior year period.

When adjusted for Foreign Exchange and Acquisitions, Divestitures and certain other items including the 2017 and 2018 Project Terra SKU rationalization3, net sales would have increased 2% compared to the prior year.
  • Gross margin of 21.0%, a 120 basis point decrease over the prior year; adjusted gross margin of 22.1%, a 40 basis point decrease over the prior year as a result of higher trade and promotional investments in Hain Celestial United States, increased freight and commodity costs and unfavorable mix, partially offset by Project Terra cost savings.

SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Hain Celestial United States
Hain Celestial United States net sales in the fourth quarter decreased 6% over the prior year period to $269.9 million; when adjusted for Acquisitions, Divestitures and certain other items including the 2017 and 2018 Project Terra SKU rationalization3, net sales would have been generally flat. Net sales growth from the Pure Personal Care platform was offset by declines in other platforms. As previously discussed, the decline in net sales was due in part to the strategic decision to no longer support certain lower margin SKUs in order to reduce complexity and increase gross margin over time, as the United States reporting segment continued its focus on its top 500 SKUs, which disproportionately impacted the other platforms. Segment operating income in the fourth quarter was $18.6 million, a 56% decrease from the prior year period, and adjusted operating income was $23.2 million, a 45% decrease over the prior year period, driven primarily by higher trade and marketing investments to drive future period growth and increased freight and logistics costs. The financial results for the current period as well as the prior year fourth quarter results exclude the United Kingdom operations of the Ella's Kitchen® brand, thereby eliminating net sales of approximately $25.3 million and $23.6 million, respectively, as these net sales are now reported as part of the United Kingdom reportable segment.

Hain Celestial United States net sales in fiscal year 2018 decreased 2% over the prior year to $1.085 billion; when adjusted for Acquisitions, Divestitures and certain other items including the 2017 and 2018 Project Terra SKU rationalization3, net sales would have decreased 1%. The decrease in net sales was driven by declines in the Better-for-You Snacking, Fresh Living and Better-for-You Pantry platforms, partially offset by growth in the Pure Personal Care, Better-for-You Baby and Tea platforms. The decline in net sales was also due to the aforementioned fourth quarter fiscal 2018 items. Segment operating income in fiscal year 2018 was $86.3 million, a 41% decrease from the prior year, and adjusted operating income was $113.2 million, a 25% decrease over the prior year, driven primarily by higher trade and marketing investments to drive future period growth, increased freight and commodity costs and unfavorable mix. The financial results for fiscal years 2018 and 2017 exclude the United Kingdom operations of the Ella's Kitchen® brand, thereby eliminating net sales of approximately $94.9 million and $83.5 million, respectively, as these net sales are now reported as part of the United Kingdom reportable segment.

Hain Celestial United Kingdom
Hain Celestial United Kingdom net sales in the fourth quarter increased 10% to $239.1 million over the prior year period, or 5% after adjusting for Foreign Exchange, Acquisitions and Divestitures and certain other items3. The strong results for the United Kingdom segment were driven by 15% growth from Tilda®, 9% growth from Hain Daniels and 8% growth from Ella's Kitchen®, or 9%, 4% and 1% growth, respectively, after adjusting for Foreign Exchange, Acquisitions and Divestitures and certain other items3. Segment operating income was $19.0 million, a 9% decrease from the prior year period, and adjusted operating income was $20.2 million, a decrease of 7% over the prior year period. The financial results for the current period as well as the prior year fourth quarter results include the United Kingdom operations of the Ella's Kitchen® brand, which was previously reported as part of the United States reportable segment.

Hain Celestial United Kingdom net sales in fiscal year 2018 increased 10% to $938.0 million over the prior year, or 5% after adjusting for Foreign Exchange, Acquisitions and Divestitures and certain other items3. The strong results for the United Kingdom segment were driven by 14% growth from Tilda®, 9% growth from Hain Daniels and 14% growth from Ella's Kitchen®, or 8%, 3% and 7% growth, respectively, after adjusting for Foreign Exchange, Acquisitions and Divestitures and certain other items3. Segment operating income in fiscal year 2018 was $56.0 million, an 8% increase from the prior year, and adjusted operating income was $70.3 million, an increase of 24% over the prior year driven by strong contribution from the Hain Daniels brands. As discussed above, the financial results for fiscal years 2018 and 2017 include the United Kingdom operations of the Ella's Kitchen® brand, which was previously reported as part of the United States reportable segment.

Rest of World
Rest of World net sales in the fourth quarter increased 12% to $110.7 million over the prior year period, or by 6% on a constant currency basis. Net sales for Hain Celestial Europe grew 18%, or 8% on a constant currency basis, driven by strong performance from the Tilda®, Danival® and Joya® brands as well as own-label products. Net sales for Hain Celestial Canada grew 9%, or 5% on a constant currency basis, driven by strong performance from the Yves Veggie Cuisine®, Alba Botanica®, Sensible Portions® and Live Clean® brands. Segment operating income in the fourth quarter was $8.1 million, a $2.0 million decrease from the prior year period. Adjusted operating income was $9.9 million, a 2% decrease over the prior year period.

Rest of World net sales in fiscal year 2018 increased 13% to $434.9 million over the prior year, or by 7% on a constant currency basis. Net sales for Hain Celestial Europe grew 19%, or 8% on a constant currency basis, driven by strong performance from the Tilda®, Danival®, Joya®, as well as own label products.

Segment operating income in fiscal year 2018 was $38.7 million, a 21% increase from the prior year, and adjusted operating income was $42.6 million, a 34% increase over the prior year.

Hain Pure Protein Discontinued Operations
As previously disclosed on May 5, 2018, the results of operations, financial position and cash flows related to the operations of the Hain Pure Protein business segment have been moved to discontinued operations in the current and prior periods. Net sales for Hain Pure Protein in the fourth quarter were $113.2 million, a decrease of 7% compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the shift in timing of the Passover holiday. Segment operating loss in the fourth quarter was $83.8 million and included a $78.5 million pre-tax non-cash impairment charge.

For fiscal year 2018, net sales for Hain Pure Protein were $509.5 million, relatively flat compared to the prior year. Segment operating loss for fiscal year 2018 was $78.3 million and includes a $78.5 million pre-tax non-cash impairment charge.

Fiscal Year 2019 Guidance
The Company provided its annual guidance for continuing operations for fiscal year 2019:

  • Total net sales of $2.500 billion to $2.560 billion, an increase of approximately 2% to 4% as compared to fiscal year 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $275 million to $300 million, an increase of approximately 7% to 17% as compared to fiscal year 2018.
  • Adjusted EPS of $1.21 to $1.38, an increase of approximately 4% to 19% as compared to fiscal year 2018.

The Company expects growth in net sales, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EPS to be weighted towards the second half of fiscal 2019 as it benefits from the planned Hain Celestial United States strategic brand investments, distribution gains and price optimization efforts. As a result of the continued strategic brand investments and expected near-term cost headwinds, the Company expects first quarter of fiscal 2019 net sales to be flat to slightly down, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS to be down year-over-year on a percentage basis similar to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. In addition, the timing of the annual global Project Terra cost savings and productivity benefits that are already in process is expected to accelerate as the fiscal year progresses. Details of the Project Terra cost savings and productivity with expected timing are contained in the presentation for the Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 earnings call available under the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.hain.com.

Guidance, where adjusted, is provided on a non-GAAP basis and excludes acquisition-related expenses, integration and restructuring charges, start-up costs, costs associated with the CEO Succession Agreement, unrealized net foreign currency gains or losses, accounting review and remediation costs and other non-recurring items that may be incurred during the Company's fiscal year 2019, which the Company will continue to identify as it reports its future financial results. Guidance also excludes the impact of any future acquisitions.

The Company cannot reconcile its expected Adjusted EBITDA to net income or adjusted earnings per diluted share to earnings per share under "Fiscal Year 2019 Guidance" without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time.

Effective July 1, 2017, due to changes to the Company's internal management and reporting structure, the United Kingdom operations of the Ella's Kitchen® brand, which was previously included within the United States reportable segment, is included in the United Kingdom reportable segment. The prior period segment information contained below has been adjusted to reflect the Company's new operating and reporting structure.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the accompanying tables include non-GAAP financial measures, including net sales adjusted for the impact of Foreign currency, Acquisitions and Divestitures and certain other items, including SKU rationalization, as applicable in each case, adjusted operating income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and operating free cash flow. The reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables "Reconciliation of GAAP Results to Non-GAAP Measures" for the three months and twelve months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 and in the paragraphs below. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented provide useful additional information to investors about current trends in the Company's operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures provided by other companies due to potential differences in methods of calculation and items being excluded. They should be read only in connection with the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company defines Operating Free Cash Flow as cash provided by or used in operating activities from continuing operations (a GAAP measure) less capital expenditures. The Company views Operating Free Cash Flow as an important measure because it is one factor in evaluating the amount of cash available for discretionary investments.

For the 12 months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Operating Free Cash Flow from continuing operations was calculated as follows:

The Company's Operating Free Cash Flow from continuing operations was $50.4 million for the 12 months ended June 30, 2018, a decrease of $135.0 million from the twelve months ended June 30, 2017.  The decrease in Operating Free Cash Flow was primarily attributable to increased capital expenditures in the current year and an increase in inventories and accounts receivable.

The Company believes presenting net sales at constant currency provides useful information to investors because it provides transparency to underlying performance in the Company's consolidated net sales by excluding the effect that foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations have on period-to-period comparability given the volatility in foreign currency exchange markets. To present this information for historical periods, current period net sales for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average monthly exchange rates in effect during the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, rather than at the actual average monthly exchange rate in effect during the current period of the current fiscal year. As a result, the foreign currency impact is equal to the current year results in local currencies multiplied by the change in average foreign currency exchange rate between the current fiscal period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

The Company provides net sales adjusted for constant currency, acquisitions and divestitures, and certain other items including SKU rationalization, as applicable in each case, to understand the growth rate of net sales excluding the impact of such items. The Company's management believes net sales adjusted for such items is useful to investors because it enables them to better understand the growth of our business from period-to-period.

The Company defines EBITDA as net income from continuing operations (a GAAP measure) before income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation and amortization, equity in net income of equity method investees, stock based compensation expense and unrealized currency gains. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before acquisition-related expenses, including integration and restructuring charges, and other non-recurring items. The Company's management believes that these presentations provide useful information to management, analysts and investors regarding certain additional financial and business trends relating to its results of operations and financial condition. In addition, management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company as well as a component of performance-based executive compensation.

For the three months and twelve months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was calculated as follows:
