Net Sales

Net sales increased 4 percent, primarily due to favorable volume/mix for the Company's U.S. Retail Coffee and U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segments, reflecting elevated at-home consumption, partially offset by reduced volume/mix for its Away From Home operating segment. Net price realization and foreign currency exchange were neutral.

Operating Income

Gross profit increased $64.2 million, or 9 percent, primarily due to a favorable change in unallocated derivative gains and losses as compared to the prior year and the increased contribution from volume/mix. Operating income increased $51.0 million, or 15 percent, primarily reflecting the increase in gross profit, partially offset by a $21.3 million increase in selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses.

Adjusted gross profit increased $33.6 million, or 4 percent, with the difference from generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") results being the exclusion of unallocated derivative gains and losses. Adjusted operating income increased $17.8 million, or 5 percent, further reflecting the exclusion of other special project costs and amortization.

Interest Expense, Other Income (Expense), and Income Taxes

Net interest expense decreased $4.0 million, primarily as a result of a decrease in interest rates and reduced debt outstanding, partially offset by interest expense related to interest rate contracts terminated in the fourth quarter of the prior year.

Net other expense increased $30.6 million, reflecting pension settlement charges, including a noncash pre-tax settlement charge of $27.9 million related to the Company's Canadian defined benefit pension plan, which is excluded from adjusted net income.

The effective income tax rate was 24.0 percent compared to 24.3 percent in the prior year.

Cash Flow and Debt

Cash provided by operating activities was $378.7 million, compared to $224.0 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting a decrease in cash required to fund working capital and an increase in net income adjusted for noncash items. Free cash flow was $326.3 million, compared to $160.6 million in the prior year, reflecting the increase in cash provided by operating activities and an $11.0 million decrease in capital expenditures. Net debt repayments in the quarter totaled $216.1 million.

The Company updated its full-year fiscal 2021 guidance as summarized below:

The outbreak of COVID-19 continues to impact financial results and cause uncertainty for the full-year fiscal 2021 outlook. Changes in consumer purchasing behavior, retailer inventory levels, macroeconomic conditions, and any manufacturing or supply chain disruption could materially impact actual results. This guidance reflects expectations based on the Company's current performance and understanding of the overall environment. 

Net sales are expected to increase 1 to 2 percent compared to the prior year, primarily reflecting elevated at-home consumption benefiting the U.S. Retail Coffee and U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segments. Net sales guidance also reflects a decline for the Company's Away From Home business and the lapping of a $185 million incremental benefit to net sales related to COVID-19 in the fourth quarter of the prior year.

Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $8.55 to $8.85, based on 114.1 million shares outstanding. Earnings guidance reflects the contribution from sales at a gross profit margin range of 37.5 to 38.0 percent, SD&A expenses to increase 1 to 2 percent compared to the prior year, and an effective tax rate of 24.0 percent. Free cash flow is expected to range from $975 million to $1,025 million with capital expenditures of $315 million.

The full-year fiscal 2021 guidance does not reflect any impact related to the Company's previously announced agreement to divest the Crisco® oils and shortening business. The Company expects the transaction to close during the third quarter of the current fiscal year and estimates the fiscal 2021 net sales impact to be approximately $100 million and adjusted earnings per share impact to be approximately $0.20, excluding any potential benefit from the use of proceeds from the sale.

Net sales decreased $1.2 million, reflecting a 1 percentage point impact from lower net pricing, mostly offset by a 1 percentage point increase from volume/mix. The contribution from volume/mix primarily reflects growth for cat food and dog snacks driven by Meow Mix® and private label cat food, as well as Pup-Peroni® and Milk-Bone® dog snacks. These gains were partially offset by reduced volume/mix for dog food, mostly driven by private label and the Natural Balance® brand.

Segment profit decreased $12.1 million, primarily due to the impact of lower net pricing and higher marketing expense.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit; adjusted operating income; adjusted income; adjusted earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges related to intangible assets ("EBITDA (as adjusted)"); and free cash flow, as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally. The Company believes that investors' understanding of its performance is enhanced by disclosing these performance measures. Furthermore, these non-GAAP financial measures are used by management in preparation of the annual budget and for the monthly analyses of its operating results. The Board of Directors also utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures as components for measuring performance for incentive compensation purposes.

Non-GAAP measures exclude certain items affecting comparability that can significantly affect the year-over-year assessment of operating results, which include amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets; divestiture, acquisition, integration, and restructuring costs ("special project costs"); gains and losses related to the sale of a business; unallocated gains and losses on commodity and foreign currency exchange derivatives ("unallocated derivative gains and losses"); and other one-time items that do not directly reflect ongoing operating results. Income taxes, as adjusted is calculated using an adjusted effective income tax rate that is applied to adjusted income before income taxes and reflects the exclusion of the previously discussed items, as well as any adjustments for one-time tax-related activities, when they occur. While this adjusted effective income tax rate does not generally differ materially from the GAAP effective income tax rate, certain exclusions from non-GAAP results can significantly impact the adjusted effective income tax rate.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments. A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the current and prior year periods is included in the "Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables. The Company has also provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures for its fiscal 2021 outlook.

(A) As unallocated derivative losses (gains) vary each quarter based on market conditions and derivative positions taken, the Company
does  not project derivative gains or losses on a forward-looking basis. Therefore, the forward-looking unallocated derivative losses
(gains) in the table above reflect the net cumulative amount already recognized in GAAP results as of October 31, 2020, that is
expected to be allocated to non-GAAP results in future periods.
