Jul 27, 2017

PLANO, Texas, July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. (NYSE: DPS) reported second quarter 2017 EPS of $1.02, which included an $0.18 per diluted share loss on early extinguishment of debt, compared to $1.39 in the prior year period. Core EPS were $1.25 in the quarter, flat against prior year. Year-to-date, the company reported earnings of $1.98 per diluted share, including the aforementioned $0.18 loss, compared to $2.35 per diluted share in the prior year period. Year-to-date Core EPS were $2.25, up 3% compared to $2.18 in the prior year period.

DPS President and CEO Larry Young said, "I'm proud of our teams for delivering strong top-line results for the quarter. We remain committed to our priority brand strategy, as demonstrated by our increased marketing investment. We also invested further in activities to deliver increased trial of Bai and are encouraged by the results so far. Our CSD portfolio once again outperformed the category, growing both dollar and volume share in IRi measured markets. Our allied brands continue to contribute strong growth to our business, and we're driving growth and productivity with Rapid Continuous Improvement."

For the quarter, sales volumes increased 4%, inclusive of the Bai acquisition. Reported net sales increased 6%, including the Bai acquisition, which accounted for just over 1 percentage point of net sales growth. Total Bai brand sales growth contributed just over 2 percentage points of net sales growth. Organic net sales growth was driven by an increase in organic sales volumes and favorable product and package mix, which were partially offset by the termination of the Rockstar distribution agreement.

Reported gross profit margin decreased 50 basis points primarily on an unfavorable $19 million comparison of unrealized mark-to-market activity. Core gross profit margin increased 70 basis points to 60.4% as the flow-through from organic net sales growth and $33 million of incremental gross profit from the Bai acquisition were partially offset by higher commodity costs, increases in certain manufacturing costs and unfavorable foreign currency translation and transaction impacts.

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) increased $93 million in the quarter. The acquisition of Bai added $40 million, including $20 million in marketing investments, and $1 million of transaction expenses. A further marketing investment increase of $16 million behind our other priority brands, continued planned investment behind our DSD front-line sales, delivery, and merchandising workforce, and an unfavorable $18 million comparison of unrealized commodity mark-to-market activity also increased SG&A. Core SG&A increased $74 million in the quarter, which excludes the aforementioned unfavorable comparison of unrealized mark-to market activity.

Other operating income increased $1 million in the quarter due primarily to the gain on the termination of the Rockstar distribution agreement.

Reported income from operations declined by $39 million, or 9%, in the quarter. The unfavorable comparison of unrealized commodity mark-to-market activity contributed $37 million of this decline, and the acquisition of Bai reduced reported income from operations by $10 million, including $2 million of amortization of intangibles and $1 million of transaction expenses. These declines, as well as substantially higher marketing investments behind our other priority brands and increases in certain other operating expenses, were partially offset by strong top-line growth. Core income from operations of $386 million was essentially flat to prior year.    

Year-to-date, sales volumes increased 2%, and reported net sales increased 4%, inclusive of the Bai acquisition, which increased reported net sales by approximately 1%. Reported income from operations was $658 million, including an $8 million loss on unrealized commodity mark-to-market activity. The acquisition of Bai reduced reported income from operations by $44 million, including $31 million of marketing investments, $20 million of transaction expenses, the effects of deferring the recognition of $9 million of gross profit on shipments of Bai product still in our inventory and $3 million of amortization of intangibles. This loss was partially offset by the $28 million gain on the company's initial equity investment.  Foreign currency translation and transaction, combined, negatively impacted reported income from operations by 1%.  Reported income from operations in the prior year period was $725 million, which included $32 million in unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains. Year-to-date core income from operations declined from $693 million to $686 million.

Beverage Concentrates
Net sales increased 4% in the quarter on a 2% increase in concentrate shipments and concentrate price increases taken earlier in the year. Lower discounts further increased net sales as the result of favorable trade accrual adjustments in the quarter that were partially offset by unfavorable product mix. SOP increased 3% driven by net sales growth, which was partially offset by increases in marketing investments due to marketing accrual adjustments.

Packaged Beverages
Net sales increased 6% in the quarter on favorable product and package mix, mostly due to growth in our NCBs, including continued growth in our allied brands, a 4% increase in organic sales volume and growth from the Bai acquisition, net of the loss of Rockstar. SOP decreased 6% as results of the acquired Bai business, excluding the distribution profits within our distribution system, were a loss of $10 million, including $20 million of marketing investments, $2 million of amortization of intangibles and $1 million of transaction expenses.

Additionally, inflationary increases in certain manufacturing and other operating expenses and planned increases behind our DSD front-line workforce were incurred, along with an $11 million planned increase in organic marketing investments supporting our other priority brands. 

Latin America Beverages
Net sales increased 11% in the quarter on a 6% increase in sales volumes and higher pricing, which were partially offset by unfavorable product and package mix. SOP was flat in the quarter, as sales growth was entirely offset by higher commodity costs, unfavorable foreign currency transaction effects, inflationary increases in certain operating expenses and increased planned marketing investments. In the quarter, the segment incurred $4 million of higher U.S. dollar denominated input costs, which caused a 17% decline in SOP.

Corporate and Other Items
For the quarter, corporate costs totaled $86 million, which included $12 million in unrealized commodity mark-to-market losses. Corporate costs in the prior year period were $52 million, which included $25 million in unrealized commodity mark-to-market gains.

Net interest expense increased $11 million in the quarter primarily driven by a higher debt balance associated with the Bai acquisition.

The company recognized a $49 million loss on the early extinguishment of debt in the quarter.

Other income decreased $20 million in the quarter as a result of an unfavorable comparison to a $21 million gain on the extinguishment of a multi-employer pension plan withdrawal liability in the prior year.

For the quarter, the reported effective tax rate was 33.2%, including a $6 million favorable tax planning benefit. The effective tax rate in the prior year period was 35.3%.

Cash Flow
Year-to-date, the company generated $410 million of cash from operating activities, compared to $428 million in the prior year period. Capital spending totaled $41 million compared to $68 million in the prior year period. The company returned $381 million to shareholders in the form of stock repurchases ($177 million) and dividends ($204 million).

2017 Full Year Guidance includes the following items:

  • Organic volume growth is still expected to be just over 1%; total volume growth is still expected to be approximately 2%, inclusive of the Bai acquisition, which closed on January 31, 2017.                   
  • Net sales growth is now expected to be about 4.5%, including the Bai acquisition, which is still expected to add approximately 2 percentage points to growth.
  • The impact of the Bai acquisition is now expected to be $0.07 dilutive to Core EPS.
  • Collectively, foreign currency translation and transaction are now expected to reduce Core EPS by $0.04, primarily driven by the Mexican peso.
  • Excluding the Bai acquisition, we continue to expect packaging and ingredient costs to be inflationary by approximately 0.5% on a constant volume/mix basis.
  • The company continues to expect its full year core tax rate to be approximately 34%.
  • The company continues to expect to repurchase shares of its common stock of $450 million to $500 million
  • The company continues to expect capital spending to be approximately 3% of net sales.
  • Taking the above items into consideration, the company continues to expect 2017 Core EPS in the $4.56 to $4.66 range.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This Press Release may contain certain forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures, as defined in Regulation G, relating to forward-looking results. We have not provided a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures included therein to the closest equivalent GAAP financial measure because, due primarily to variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projection, not all of the information necessary to forecast and quantify the exact amount of the items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures that will be included in the closest equivalent GAAP financial measure was or is available to us without unreasonable efforts.

Definitions
Bottler case sales (BCS) volume: Sales of finished beverages, in equivalent 288 fluid ounce cases, sold by the company and its bottling partners to retailers and independent distributors and excludes contract manufacturing volume. Volume for products sold by the company and its bottling partners is reported on a monthly basis, with the second quarter comprising April, May and June.

Sales volume: Sales of concentrates and finished beverages, in equivalent 288 fluid ounce cases, shipped by the company to its bottlers, retailers and independent distributors and includes contract manufacturing volume.

Organic: Represents the incremental impact to our results from our pre-existing business prior to the acquisition of Bai.

Bai acquisition, the Bai acquisition or acquisition of Bai: Refers to our acquisition of the Bai Brands business by DPS, which was consummated on January 31, 2017, and the operation of Bai subsequent to the acquisition. In part because we were an investor in Bai Brands and were their largest distributor, there were many financial aspects of the acquisition, which impacted our financial statements and our accounting for the transaction as explained in this Press Release.

Pricing refers to the impact of list price changes.

Unrealized mark-to-market: We recognize the change in the fair value of open commodity and interest rate derivative positions not designated as hedges in accordance with U.S. GAAP. As the underlying commodity is delivered, the realized gains and losses associated with commodity derivatives are subsequently reflected in the segment results.

EPS represents diluted earnings per share.

Core financial measures are determined utilizing reported financial numbers adjusted for the unrealized mark-to-market impact of commodity and interest rate derivatives and certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods.

Core metrics are determined based on the core financial measures.

Net sales and segment operating profit, as adjusted to currency neutral: Net sales and segment operating profit are calculated on a currency neutral basis by converting our current-period local currency financial results using the prior-period foreign currency exchange rates.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP INFORMATION
(Unaudited)

 

The company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP measures that reflect the way management evaluates the business may provide investors with additional information regarding the company's results, trends and ongoing performance on a comparable basis. Specifically, investors should consider the following with respect to our quarterly results:

Net sales and Segment Operating Profit, as adjusted to currency neutral: Net sales and Segment Operating Profit are calculated on a currency neutral basis by converting our current-period local currency financial results using the prior-period foreign currency exchange rates.

Free Cash Flow: Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities adjusted for capital spending and certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods. For the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, there were no certain items excluded for comparison to prior year periods.

Core earnings: Core earnings is defined as net income adjusted for the unrealized mark-to-market impact of commodity derivatives and interest rate derivatives not designated as hedges in accordance with U.S. GAAP and certain items that are excluded for comparison to prior year periods, adjusted for the tax impact. Tax impact is determined based upon an approximate rate for each item. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, we excluded (i) the impact of transaction and integration expenses associated with the Bai Brands Merger and (ii) the loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the completion of a tender offer for our 2018 Notes and 2038 Notes. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, we excluded a gain on the extinguishment of a multi-employer withdrawal liability.

The tables on the following pages provide these reconciliations.
