CEO Comments

Mark Clouse, Campbell’s President and CEO, stated, “I am pleased that we delivered another high-quality quarter with organic sales, and adjusted gross margin, EBIT and earnings, growing in-line with or above our expectations. Additionally, I am very pleased with our successful deleveraging in the quarter, resulting in a much-improved leverage ratio. Given the momentum of the business and lower adjusted interest expense from our debt reduction, we are able to make important incremental investments in the business in the second half while increasing adjusted EPS guidance for the year.”

Second-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales were comparable to the prior year. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the European chips business, increased 1% from the prior year driven by gains in Snacks.

Gross margin increased from 32.5% to 34.3%. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross margin increased 150 basis points to 34.4% driven primarily by productivity improvements, the benefits from cost savings initiatives and favorable product mix, offset partly by cost inflation.

Marketing and selling expenses increased 7% to $237 million driven primarily by increased investments in advertising and consumer promotion expenses. Administrative expenses increased 1% to $148 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses decreased 1%, primarily reflecting the benefits of cost savings initiatives.

Other income was $22 million as compared to $8 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted other income was $11 million compared to $8 million in the prior year. The year-over-year change in adjusted other income primarily reflects higher pension and postretirement benefit income.

As reported EBIT increased 8% to $350 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 4% to $364 million as improved gross margin performance was offset partly by increased marketing investment.

Net interest expense was $146 million compared to $91 million in the prior year reflecting a loss on the extinguishment of debt. Excluding items impacting comparability in the current year, adjusted net interest expense decreased 22% from the prior year to $71 million reflecting lower levels of debt. The tax rate was 16.2% as compared to 24.8% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate increased 90 basis points to 24.9%.

The company reported EPS of $0.56 reflecting a loss on the extinguishment of debt. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS increased 11% to $0.72 per share, reflecting the lower adjusted net interest expense and increase in adjusted EBIT.

First-Half Results from Continuing Operations

Net sales decreased 1% reflecting a 1-point negative impact from the sale of the European chips business. Organic net sales were comparable to the prior year.

As reported EBIT increased 2% to $667 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 5% to $756 million reflecting benefits of cost savings initiatives and supply chain productivity improvements and favorable product mix, offset partly by cost inflation and increased marketing investment.

Net interest expense was $226 million compared to $181 million in the prior year reflecting a loss on the extinguishment of debt. Excluding items impacting comparability in the current year, adjusted net interest expense decreased 17% from the prior year to $151 million reflecting lower levels of debt. The tax rate decreased from 24.3% to 22.9%. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate increased 60 basis points from 23.9% to 24.5%.

The company reported EPS of $1.12 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS increased 11% to $1.51 per share reflecting the increase in adjusted EBIT and lower adjusted net interest expense.

Cash flows from operations were $663 million compared to $846 million in the prior year due primarily to changes in accrued liabilities, including incentive compensation and interest. Total debt was $5.8 billion compared to $9.5 billion in the prior year primarily due to successful deleveraging in the quarter following the completion of the company’s previously announced divestiture plan. The company reduced net debt from continuing operations by $3.3 billion to $5.8 billion compared to the prior year, resulting in a net debt to trailing twelve-month adjusted EBITDA* of 3.5x. In line with the company’s commitment to returning value to shareholders, during the first half of fiscal 2020, the company paid $213 million of cash dividends reflecting the quarterly dividend rate of $0.35 per share.

Campbell Raises Fiscal 2020 Adjusted EPS Guidance

Campbell now expects adjusted EPS to be in the range of $2.55 to $2.60 per share, reflecting lower adjusted net interest expense due to reduced debt and EBIT momentum through the first half, which will be partly offset by incremental investments in the business in the second half of the year. Campbell continues to expect full-year reported and organic net sales, as well as adjusted EBIT, to be consistent with guidance provided on Dec. 04, 2019.

Fiscal 2020 comprises 53 weeks, one additional week compared to fiscal 2019. The benefit of the 53rd week, consistent with the prior fiscal 2020 guidance, is estimated to be worth two points of net sales, adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS. The outlook for organic net sales excludes the negative impact from the sale of the European chips business along with the estimated contribution of the 53rd week.

Meals & Beverages

Net sales in the quarter were comparable to prior year driven primarily by gains in Prego pasta sauces and U.S. soup, partly offset by declines in beverages. Net sales of U.S. soup increased 1% with gains in condensed soups and broth, offset partly by declines in ready-to-serve soups.

Segment operating earnings decreased 4% to $242 million. The decrease was driven primarily by increased marketing investment and higher administrative costs offset partly by improved gross margin performance.

Snacks

Net sales in the quarter decreased 1%. Excluding the impact from the sale of the European chips business, net sales increased 2% driven primarily by gains in Goldfish crackers and Pepperidge Farm cookies, as well as gains in Kettle Brand and Cape Cod potato chips, offset partly by declines in fresh bakery products and the partner brands within the Snyder’s-Lance portfolio as the company continues its planned prioritization of select partners to reduce complexity and improve execution.

Segment operating earnings increased 3% to $136 million. The increase was primarily due to improved gross margin performance offset partly by increased marketing investment.

Corporate

Corporate expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 included costs related to cost savings initiatives of $18 million and pension settlement gains of $11 million. Corporate expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 included costs related to cost savings initiatives of $22 million. The remaining decrease in expenses primarily reflects lower administrative costs and higher pension and postretirement benefit income.

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 in fiscal 2019, the divestiture of Kelsen Group on Sept. 23, 2019, and the divestiture of Arnott’s and certain of Campbell’s international operations on Dec. 23, 2019. The company reported a gain from discontinued operations in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 of $3.41 per share compared to a loss of $0.78 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted earnings from discontinued operations were $0.04 per share compared to $0.12 per share in the prior year.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Second Quarter Ended January 26, 2020

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 were reported as discontinued operations. Beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the results of the Kelsen Group, Arnott's and certain other international operations (Campbell International), which represented the former international biscuits and snacks operating segment, are reported as discontinued operations. On October 11, 2019, the company sold its European chips business. The results of the business through the date of sale are reflected in continuing operations within the Snacks segment.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales are net sales excluding the impact of currency, acquisitions, divestitures, and the additional week in fiscal 2020. 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 follows.

Items Impacting Earnings

Net Debt

Management believes that net debt from continuing operations is a non-GAAP measure that provides additional comparisons between the company's financial position at January 26, 2020, and January 27, 2019, and also a useful perspective on the financial condition of the business. Cash and cash equivalents are available to repay outstanding debt upon maturity.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA

Net debt to adjusted EBITDA is net debt divided by adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Management believes that net debt to adjusted EBITDA is a useful metric to evaluate the company's financial leverage. Net debt to adjusted EBITDA is not a financial measure under GAAP and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the same manner.
