Second-Quarter Sales Increased 6 Percent, Organic Sales Increased 3 Percent

Adjusted EBIT from Continuing Operations Increased 15 Percent

Second-Quarter Adjusted EPS from Continuing Operations Increased 19 Percent to $0.76

Company Reiterates Fiscal 2014 Guidance

CAMDEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 2014-- Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) today reported its results for the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

Second-Quarter Overview

  • U.S. Simple Meals Sales Rose 7 Percent; Earnings Increased 12 Percent
  • Including the Acquisition of Kelsen Group, Global Baking and Snacking Sales Were Up 14 Percent; Earnings Increased 19 Percent
  • U.S. Beverages Sales Declined 3 Percent; Earnings Decreased 16 Percent

The company reported earnings from continuing operations for the quarter ended Jan. 26, 2014, of $235 million, or $0.74 per share, compared with earnings of $171 million, or $0.54 per share, in the prior year. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the company and its joint venture partner Swire Pacific Ltd. agreed to restructure manufacturing and streamline operations for its soup business in China. The company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $13 million ($5 million after tax or $0.02 per share in earnings from continuing operations attributable to Campbell Soup Company) related to this initiative. Excluding items impacting comparability in both periods, adjusted earnings from continuing operations increased 19 percent to $240 million compared with $201 million in the prior year’s quarter, and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations increased 19 percent to $0.76 compared with $0.64 in the year-ago quarter. A detailed reconciliation of the reported financial information to the adjusted information is included at the end of this news release.

Denise Morrison, Campbell’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We remain focused on strengthening our core business and expanding into higher-growth spaces as we reshape our portfolio to improve Campbell’s long-term growth trajectory. We made progress on both fronts in the second quarter after a slow start to the year. In the quarter, we delivered 6 percent reported net sales growth and 15 percent adjusted EBIT growth, driven by our core business and the Kelsen Group acquisition. We also closed on the divestiture of our European simple meals business. Finally, we maintained our steadfast focus on driving productivity and managing costs.

“Our improved performance included 7 percent growth in U.S. Simple Meals, driven largely by an increase of 5 percent in U.S. Soup sales reflecting strong holiday shipments and increased retailer inventory levels, as well as gains from our new ‘Campbell’s’ dinner sauces and ‘Prego’ white sauces. In Global Baking and Snacking, Pepperidge Farm continued to deliver growth in ‘Goldfish’ crackers, cookies and fresh bakery. Kelsen Group, which we acquired to expand our snacks business in developing markets, performed well in China and Hong Kong during their important holiday season. Indonesia continued to post double-digit sales growth. Bolthouse Farms also drove solid growth with double-digit sales increases in premium refrigerated beverages and salad dressings.”

Morrison continued, “We still face some challenges in U.S. Beverages and Australia, but we have taken steps to strengthen these businesses. In January, we transitioned ‘V8’ single-serve products to a new national distribution network that will focus on driving growth in immediate consumption channels over time. In Australia, we brought in new leadership for Asia Pacific, developed a more focused plan for our core biscuit business and implemented initiatives to reduce costs.”

Morrison concluded, “While I am encouraged by our second-quarter results, our team recognizes that our full-year guidance demands that we continue to deliver improved performance in the second half. We expect our U.S. Soup business to benefit from eight new soups that were launched last month, including our first Latin-inspired cooking soups. We anticipate a stronger second half from Pepperidge Farm, particularly in the ‘Goldfish’ franchise. We expect continued strong performance from Bolthouse Farms, which will launch an exciting suite of innovative new beverages and salad dressings this spring. We expect a more meaningful contribution from Plum Organics as the products impacted by the voluntary recall in November return to shelf. We also plan to improve profitability as we continue to focus on reducing costs and driving efficiency in our supply chain. We remain focused on executing against our aggressive but realistic plans to drive growth in the back half and deliver our full-year guidance.”

Campbell Reiterates Fiscal 2014 Guidance for Continuing Operations

The company confirmed its fiscal 2014 guidance. Campbell expects continuing operations to grow sales by 4 to 5 percent, adjusted EBIT to grow by 4 to 6 percent and adjusted EPS to grow by 2 to 4 percent, or $2.53 to $2.58 per share. Fiscal 2014 guidance includes the benefits of a 53rd week, acquisitions, the estimated impact of currency translation and the impact of presenting revenue on a net basis in connection with the company’s new business model in Mexico.

Second-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

For the second quarter, sales from continuing operations increased 6 percent to $2.281 billion. Organic sales increased by 3 percent. The increase in sales for the quarter reflected the following factors:

  • Acquisitions added 5 percent
  • Volume and mix added 2 percent
  • Price and sales allowances added 2 percent
  • Increased promotional spending subtracted 1 percent
  • Currency subtracted 2 percent

Second-Quarter Financial Details – Continuing Operations

  • Gross margin was 35.7 percent compared with 35.2 percent a year ago. Excluding restructuring-related costs in the prior year, adjusted gross margin was 37.1 percent a year ago. The decline in gross margin was primarily due to cost inflation, supply chain activities and related costs and unfavorable mix, partly offset by productivity improvements and higher selling prices.
  • Marketing and selling expenses decreased 3 percent to $268 million. The decrease was primarily due to lower marketing overhead expenses, lower advertising and consumer promotion expenses, reduced selling expenses and the negative impact of currency, partly offset by the addition of Kelsen Group and Plum Organics expenses.
  • Administrative expenses decreased $21 million to $142 million, primarily due to lower incentive compensation costs, lower pension expenses and cost savings from recent restructuring initiatives, partly offset by the impact of acquisitions.
  • EBIT was $361 million compared with $277 million in the prior-year quarter. Excluding items impacting comparability in both years, adjusted EBIT increased 15 percent to $374 million. Excluding Kelsen Group and Plum Organics operating results, adjusted EBIT increased 12 percent, primarily due to lower administrative expenses, increased organic sales and lower marketing expenses, partly offset by a lower gross margin percentage.
  • Net interest expense decreased $2 million to $29 million.
  • The tax rate in the quarter was 31.3 percent compared with 31.7 percent in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in both periods, the current quarter’s adjusted tax rate was 31.0 percent compared to 32.7 percent in the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to lower taxes on foreign earnings in the current quarter.

First-Half Results from Continuing Operations

Earnings from continuing operations for the first half were $416 million, or $1.32 per share, compared with earnings of $403 million, or $1.28 per share, in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in both periods, adjusted earnings from continuing operations decreased 4 percent to $449 million compared with $467 million in the prior year, and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased 4 percent to $1.42 compared with $1.48 in the year-ago period.

For the first half, sales from continuing operations increased 2 percent to $4.446 billion. Organic sales decreased by 1 percent. The increase in sales for the first half reflected the following factors:

  • Acquisitions added 4 percent
  • Volume and mix subtracted 1 percent
  • Price and sales allowances added 1 percent
  • Increased promotional spending subtracted 1 percent
  • Currency subtracted 2 percent

*Numbers do not add due to rounding

First-Half Financial Details – Continuing Operations

  • Gross margin was 35.8 percent compared with 36.2 percent a year ago. Excluding restructuring-related costs in both years, adjusted gross margin in the first half was 35.8 percent, compared with 37.6 percent a year ago. The decline in gross margin was primarily attributable to cost inflation and supply chain activities and related costs, the impact of acquisitions and the previously-announced Plum Organics recall, partly offset by productivity improvements.
  • Marketing and selling expenses increased 4 percent to $529 million. The increase was primarily driven by the addition of acquisitions and higher adverting and consumer promotion expenses, partly offset by the impact of currency and lower marketing overhead expenses.
  • Administrative expenses decreased $28 million to $290 million, primarily due to lower incentive compensation costs, lower pension expenses and cost savings from recent restructuring initiatives, partly offset by the impact of acquisitions.
  • EBIT was $666 million compared with $645 million in the prior-year period. Excluding items impacting comparability in both years, adjusted EBIT decreased 5 percent to $711 million. Adjusted EBIT declined primarily due to a lower gross margin percentage, lower organic sales and expenses related to the Plum Organics recall, partly offset by lower administrative expenses.
  • Net interest expense decreased $5 million to $59 million, reflecting lower interest rates, partially offset by interest costs associated with acquisitions.
  • The tax rate in the first half was 32.8 percent compared with 31.5 percent in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability in both periods, the current year’s adjusted tax rate was 31.6 percent compared to 32.3 percent in the prior year. The decrease was due to lower taxes on foreign earnings in 2014, partially offset by a favorable settlement of a state tax matter in 2013.
  • Cash flow from operations was $363 million compared with $499 million in the prior year. The decline was primarily due to taxes paid on the divestiture of the European simple meals business and lower cash earnings in fiscal 2014.

Summary of Fiscal 2014 Second-Quarter and First-Half Results by Segment

Sales of U.S. Sauces increased 16 percent versus the prior-year quarter, with the acquisition of Plum Organics contributing 8 points of growth.

  • Volume and mix subtracted 2 percent

Operating earnings increased by $6 million to $36 million. The increase in operating earnings was primarily due to reduced administrative expenses and productivity improvements, partly offset by cost inflation.

For the first half, sales increased 2 percent to $689 million, driven by the additional week from Bolthouse Farms. Excluding the additional week from Bolthouse Farms, segment sales were comparable to the prior year with gains in Bolthouse Farms, offset by declines in Foodservice. Bolthouse Farms organic sales were up due to double-digit growth in premium refrigerated beverages and salad dressings.

Unallocated Corporate Expenses

Unallocated corporate expenses for the quarter were $33 million compared with $80 million a year ago. The prior-year quarter included $40 million of restructuring-related costs. The balance of the decrease for the current quarter was primarily due to lower incentive compensation costs.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Second Quarter Ended January 26, 2014

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.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales exclude the impact of acquisitions, currency and presenting revenue on a net basis in connection with a new business model in Mexico in fiscal 2014. The company believes that organic net sales improves the comparability of year-to-year results. A reconciliation of net sales as reported to organic net sales follows.

Items Impacting Gross Margin and Earnings

The company believes that financial information excluding certain transactions that are not considered to be part of the ongoing business improves the comparability of year-to-year results.

(1)

In fiscal 2014, the company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $1 million and restructuring-related costs of $2 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $2 million after tax or $.01 per share on earnings from continuing operations). In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the company recorded pre-tax restructuring charges of $8 million and restructuring-related costs of $40 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $30 million after tax or $.09 per share on earnings from continuing operations).
