CEO Comments
Commenting on the quarter, Mark Clouse, Campbell’s President and CEO, said, "As expected, our second quarter was challenging as we lapped a difficult comparison and navigated labor and supply constraints, made even tougher by the Omicron surge. However, heading into the second half of the fiscal year, we are seeing labor availability and service levels improve, better mitigation of inflation with pricing, and strong levels of demand all underpinning our confidence in our delivery of full-year guidance.”

Second-Quarter Results from Continuing Operations
Net sales in the quarter decreased 3% versus the prior year to $2.21 billion. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, decreased 2%. Pricing and sales allowances and lower promotional spending had a favorable 5% and 1% impact on net sales, respectively. This was more than offset by an 8% decrease in volume and mix as the company continued to navigate industry-wide labor and supply challenges.

As anticipated, gross margin decreased to 30.3% from 34.4% last year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross margin decreased 340 basis points to 30.4% as higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs, and unfavorable volume/mix largely due to reduced operating leverage were partially offset by the benefit of pricing actions, supply chain productivity improvements, lower levels of promotional spending and cost savings initiatives.

Marketing and selling expenses decreased 15% to $197 million driven by lower advertising and consumer promotion expense (A&C). Total A&C was reduced by 27% as investment was moderated to reflect supply pressure and is expected to normalize as supply strengthens throughout the year.

Administrative expenses decreased 7% to $147 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses decreased by $8 million, or 5%, to $144 million due to benefits from cost savings initiatives and lower benefit-related costs.

Other income was $19 million compared to $45 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted other income was $9 million compared to $15 million in the prior year.

As reported EBIT decreased to $323 million from $401 million in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 17% compared to the prior year to $318 million primarily due to sales volume declines and lower adjusted gross margin performance, partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses.

Net interest expense was $46 million compared to $54 million in the prior year reflecting lower levels of debt in the current year. The tax rate was 23.5% compared to 29.4% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate decreased 60 basis points to 23.5% from 24.1%.

As reported EPS from continuing operations were $0.70 per share compared to $0.80 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations decreased $0.13, or 16%, compared to the prior year to $0.69 primarily reflecting the decrease in adjusted EBIT, partially offset by lower interest expense, a lower adjusted tax rate and the benefit of lower weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

First-Half Results from Continuing Operations
Net sales decreased 4% to $4.45 billion. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, decreased 3% driven by volume declines primarily due to supply constraints, partly offset by favorable price and sales allowances.

As reported EBIT decreased 19% compared to the prior year to $699 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 16% compared to the prior year to $707 million, reflecting sales volume declines, lower adjusted gross margin performance and lower adjusted other income, partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses.

Net interest expense was $93 million compared to $109 million in the prior year reflecting lower levels of debt. The tax rate was 21.9% compared to 26.4% in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted tax rate was 22.0% compared to 24.0% in the prior year, primarily due to the favorable resolution of several tax matters in the first quarter of this fiscal year.

The company reported EPS from continuing operations of $1.56 per share compared to $1.82 per share in the prior year. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS from continuing operations decreased 13% compared to the prior year to $1.58 per share.

Cash flows from operations increased from $611 million in the prior year to $766 million primarily due to changes in working capital, primarily accounts payable and accounts receivable, partially offset by lower cash earnings. Capital investments were $129 million compared to $132 million in the prior year. In line with the company’s commitment to return value to shareholders, the company paid $228 million of cash dividends. During the first half, the company repurchased approximately 1.5 million shares of its common stock at an aggregate cost of $65 million. At the end of the second quarter, the company had approximately $475 million remaining under the current $500 million strategic share repurchase program. The company also has a $250 million anti-dilutive share repurchase program of which approximately $174 million was remaining.

Cost Savings Program from Continuing Operations
In the second quarter, Campbell achieved $15 million of savings under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder’s-Lance synergies, bringing total program-to-date savings to approximately $835 million. Campbell remains on track to deliver savings of $1 billion by the end of fiscal 2025.

Full-Year Fiscal 2022 Guidance
Campbell continues to expect full-year fiscal 2022 net sales, adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS performance to be consistent with its guidance provided on December 8, 2021.

The company's full-year guidance reflects expected continued strong demand for the balance of the year with steady supply recovery and improved service levels particularly in the fourth quarter as labor recovers. However, core inflation is now expected to be low double-digits for the full year. Wave two pricing will be fully reflected in the third quarter and the company expects to continue managing inflationary headwinds through pricing, supply chain productivity improvements and cost savings initiatives. The company expects these actions, an improved labor outlook, and easier prior-year comparisons to result in margin progress and earnings recovery in the second half.

The full-year fiscal 2022 guidance is set forth in the table below:

Note: A non-GAAP reconciliation is not provided for fiscal 2022 guidance as the company is unable to reasonably estimate the full-year financial impact of items such as actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans because these impacts are dependent on future changes in market conditions. The inability to predict the amount and timing of these future items makes a detailed reconciliation of these forward-looking financial measures impracticable.

The sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, which was divested on May 3, 2021, is estimated to have an impact of 1 percentage point on net sales in fiscal 2022.

Meals & Beverages
Net sales in the quarter decreased 3%. Organic net sales, which exclude the impact from the sale of the Plum baby food and snacks business, declined 2% driven by declines in U.S. retail, including U.S. soup and Campbell's pasta, as well as in Canada, partially offset by gains in foodservice. Volume declined due to supply constraints driven by labor and materials availability. Price and sales allowances were favorable in the quarter, partially offset by increased promotional spending relative to moderated levels in the prior-year quarter. Sales of U.S. soup decreased 1%, cycling a 10% increase in the prior-year quarter, due to declines in condensed soups, partly offset by gains in ready-to-serve soups and broth.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter decreased 19%. The decrease was primarily due to sales volume declines and lower gross margin performance, partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses. Gross margin performance was impacted by higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs, unfavorable volume/mix, which was largely due to reduced operating leverage, as well as higher levels of promotional spending, partially offset by the benefit of pricing actions and supply chain productivity improvements.

Snacks
Net sales in the quarter, both reported and organic, decreased 3% while sales of power brands were up 1%. Segment sales decreased due to declines in non-core businesses and in certain salty snacks, primarily Late July snacks, partially offset by gains in Goldfish crackers. Overall favorable price and sales allowances and lower promotional spending were more than offset by volume declines driven by significant supply constraints due to labor.

Segment operating earnings in the quarter decreased 14% driven by sales volume declines and increased administrative expenses, partially offset by lower marketing and selling expenses. Increased pricing and lower promotional spending combined with the results of supply chain productivity improvements and cost savings initiatives largely offset cost inflation, higher other supply chain costs and unfavorable volume/mix, which was largely due to reduced operating leverage.

Corporate
Corporate expense was $11 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to income of $17 million in the prior year. Corporate expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 included pension actuarial gains of $10 million and costs of $5 million related to cost savings initiatives. Corporate income in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 included pension actuarial gains of $30 million, unrealized mark-to-market gains on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges of $11 million, and costs related to cost savings initiatives of $4 million.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Second Quarter Ended January 30, 2022

Campbell Soup Company (the "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. Management considers quantitative and qualitative factors in assessing whether to adjust for the impact of items that may be significant or that could affect an understanding of the company’s performance and trends in its underlying operating results. The adjustments on earnings may include but are not limited to items such as: unusual or non-recurring gains or charges; restructuring charges and related costs; actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans; gains or losses on the extinguishment of debt; gains or losses on divestitures; or impairment charges. Depending upon facts or circumstances, management may change these adjustments. When these adjustments change, the company will provide updated definitions of its non-GAAP financial measures. When items no longer impact the company’s current or future presentation of non-GAAP operating results, the company will remove these items from its non-GAAP definitions.

Beginning in fiscal 2022, the company added to the non-GAAP definition of Adjusted Net earnings the exclusion of unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges until such time that the related exposure impacts its operating results. Since these instruments are used to reduce the volatility of commodity price fluctuations in future periods, this adjustment was made to remove the volatility in current results to facilitate the comparison of the company's historical operating results and trends in its underlying operating results. Prior periods presented have been adjusted retrospectively to reflect this change.

Organic Net Sales

Organic net sales are net sales excluding the impact of currency, acquisitions and divestitures. 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

Adjusted Net earnings are net earnings excluding the impact of restructuring charges and related costs, actuarial gains or losses on pension and postretirement plans, unrealized mark-to-market gains or losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges, a deferred tax charge related to a legal entity reorganization, and gains or losses on divestitures. Management believes that financial information excluding certain items that are not considered to reflect the ongoing operating results, such as those listed below, improves the comparability of year-to-year results. Consequently, management believes that investors may be able to better understand its results excluding these items.

The following items impacted Earnings from continuing operations:

  (1)

The company has implemented several cost savings initiatives in recent years.

     
 

In the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recorded implementation costs and other related costs of $3 million in Administrative expenses and $2 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $4 million after tax, or $.01 per share) related to these initiatives. In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $18 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $6 million in Administrative expenses, and a reduction to Cost of products sold of $2 million (aggregate impact of $16 million after tax, or $.05 per share) related to these initiatives. In the six-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recorded implementation costs and other related costs of $5 million in Administrative expenses and $4 million in Cost of products sold (aggregate impact of $7 million after tax, or $.02 per share) related to these initiatives. In the six-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $19 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $10 million in Administrative expenses, and a reduction to Cost of products sold of $1 million (aggregate impact of $21 million after tax, or $.07 per share) related to these initiatives. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $21 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $28 million in Administrative expenses, $3 million in Cost of products sold, and $1 million in Marketing and selling expenses (aggregate impact of $40 million after tax, or $.13 per share) related to these initiatives.

 
  (2)

In the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $10 million ($8 million after tax, or $.03 per share). In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $30 million ($23 million after tax, or $.08 per share). In the six-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $4 million ($3 million after tax, or $.01 per share). In the six-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains in Other expenses / (income) of $34 million ($26 million after tax, or $.09 per share). The actuarial gains related to the remeasurements of U.S. and Canadian pension plans. These interim remeasurements were each due to lump sum distributions that exceeded or are expected to exceed service and interest costs resulting in settlement accounting for the plans. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recognized actuarial gains on pension and postretirement plans in Other expenses / (income) of $203 million ($155 million after tax, or $.51 per share).

 
  (3)

In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $11 million ($8 million after tax, or $.03 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. In the six-month period of fiscal 2022, the company recognized losses in Cost of products sold of $3 million ($2 million after tax, or $.01 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. In the six-month period of fiscal 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $17 million ($13 million after tax, or $.04 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges. For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recognized gains in Cost of products sold of $50 million ($38 million, or $.12 per share) associated with unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges.

 
  (4)

In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, the company recorded a $19 million ($.06 per share) deferred tax charge in connection with a legal entity reorganization as part of the continued integration of Snyder's-Lance, Inc.

 
  (5)

For the year ended August 1, 2021, the company recorded a loss in Other expenses / (income) of $11 million (and a gain of $3 million after tax, or $.01 per share) on the sale of its Plum baby food and snacks business.
