Fourth-Quarter Results

Net sales in the quarter increased 4%. Organic net sales increased 5% to $2.1 billion. The impact of inflation-driven net price realization of 10% was partially offset by some unfavorable volume / mix of 5%.

Gross profit increased to $656 million from $571 million. Gross profit margin was 31.7% compared to 28.7%. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted gross profit increased to $632 million from $622 million. Adjusted gross profit margin decreased 70 basis points, as expected, to 30.6% primarily driven by unfavorable volume / mix, with net price realization and supply chain productivity improvements more than offsetting higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs.

Marketing and selling expenses increased 11% to $199 million and represented approximately 10% of net sales. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted marketing and selling expenses increased 9% to $194 million and represented approximately 9% of net sales in line with our objectives. The increase was driven by higher advertising and consumer promotion expense (A&C), which increased 23%, and higher selling expenses, partially offset by increased benefits from cost savings initiatives.

Administrative expenses increased 2% to $167 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted administrative expenses increased 7% to $164 million primarily due to higher general administrative costs and inflation, partially offset by increased benefits from cost savings initiatives.

Other income was $9 million compared to other expenses of $31 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted other expenses were $7 million compared to adjusted other income of $1 million primarily due to lower pension and postretirement benefit income this year.

As reported EBIT increased to $272 million from $170 million. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT decreased 10% to $242 million primarily due to higher adjusted strategic marketing and selling expenses, higher adjusted administrative expenses, and higher adjusted other expenses related to lower pension and postretirement benefit income this year, partially offset by higher adjusted gross profit.

Net interest expense was $47 million compared to $45 million. The effective tax rate was 24.9% compared to 23.2%. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted effective tax rate decreased to 23.1% compared to 24.1%.

As reported EPS increased to $0.57 per share compared to $0.32 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS decreased $0.06, or 11%, to $0.50 per share compared to $0.56 per share primarily reflecting the decrease in adjusted EBIT and slightly higher interest expense, partially offset by a lower adjusted effective tax rate and a reduction in the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Lower pension and postretirement benefit income in the fourth quarter drove an approximate $0.02 impact to adjusted EPS as compared to the prior-year period.

Full-Year Results

Net sales increased 9% and organic net sales increased 10% to $9.4 billion with the benefit of inflation-driven net price realization more than offsetting unfavorable volume / mix.

As reported EBIT increased 13% to $1.31 billion. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EBIT increased 5% to $1.37 billion primarily due to higher adjusted gross profit, partially offset by higher adjusted marketing and selling expenses, higher adjusted other expenses, and higher adjusted administrative expenses. Lower pension and postretirement benefit income this year drove an approximate $44 million impact to adjusted EBIT.

Net interest expense was $184 million compared to $188 million. Excluding items impacting comparability in the prior year, adjusted net interest expense was $184 million. The effective tax rate was 23.9% compared to 22.4%. Excluding items impacting comparability, the adjusted effective tax rate increased to 23.7% compared to 22.6% primarily due to the impact of state tax law changes in the prior year.

As reported EPS increased to $2.85 per share compared to $2.51 per share. Excluding items impacting comparability, adjusted EPS increased $0.15, or 5%, to $3.00, which was consistent with the company's latest fiscal 2023 guidance and included an approximate $0.11 impact from lower pension and postretirement benefit income. Fiscal 2023 adjusted EPS increased from $2.85 per share in the prior year primarily reflecting the increase in adjusted EBIT and a reduction in the weighted average diluted shares outstanding, partially offset by a higher adjusted effective tax rate.

Cash flow from operations was $1.1 billion compared to $1.2 billion primarily due to changes in working capital, partially offset by higher cash earnings. Capital expenditures were $370 million compared to $242 million. In line with Campbell’s commitment to return value to its shareholders, the company paid $447 million of cash dividends and repurchased common stock of approximately $142 million. At the end of the fourth quarter, the company had approximately $301 million remaining under the current $500 million strategic share repurchase program and approximately $104 million remaining under its $250 million anti-dilutive share repurchase program. As of fiscal year end, the company had approximately $189 million in cash and cash equivalents and $1.85 billion available under its revolving credit facility.

Cost Savings Program from Continuing Operations

Through the fourth quarter, Campbell has achieved $890 million of total savings under its multi-year cost savings program, inclusive of Snyder’s-Lance synergies. The company remains on track to deliver savings of $1 billion by the end of fiscal 2025.

Full-Year Fiscal 2024 Guidance:

Following a strong fiscal 2023, Campbell's full-year fiscal 2024 guidance reflects continued momentum against its strategic plan. The pending acquisition of Sovos Brands is currently expected to close by the end of December 2023 and is not included in Campbell's current fiscal 2024 outlook. After the transaction closes, the company expects to update guidance expectations for the combined business.

Guidance reflects the following underlying assumptions:

  • Net Sales growth reflecting:
    • Volume declines expected in the first half of fiscal 2024 with sequential improvement throughout the fiscal year leading to positive trends in the second half;
    • Expected lower contribution from pricing and disciplined levels of promotional activity;
    • More difficult first half top-line comparisons to prior year as the company will lap double-digit net sales growth driven by mid-teens inflation-driven pricing.
  • Adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS growth reflecting:
    • An expectation of modest adjusted earnings growth and margin progress in fiscal 2024, expected to be second half weighted, due to an improving cost outlook throughout the year, benefiting from a moderating inflationary environment and on-going productivity improvements benefits;
    • Continued inflation mitigation through a variety of levers including productivity improvements of approximately 3% and cost savings initiatives of approximately $35 to $40 million;
    • A continued commitment to brand investments, with marketing and selling expense as a percent of net sales expected at the low end of its targeted 9-10% range, with a meaningful step-up in marketing and selling spend in the first quarter compared to prior year;
    • Division operating margins expected to improve overall for fiscal 2024, with Snacks operating margin expected to be above 15% and modest operating margin expansion in Meals & Beverages expected in the second half of the fiscal year.
  • Non-operating items:
    • Campbell’s adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS guidance includes an estimated pre-tax headwind of approximately $13 million, or $0.03 per share, in fiscal 2024 related to lower pension and postretirement benefit income, representing approximately 1% of both adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS growth. This impact is expected be most pronounced in the first quarter of the fiscal year;
    • The divestiture of the Emerald nuts business, which closed on May 30, 2023, is estimated to reduce reported net sales growth by approximately 0.5% and have an expected dilutive impact of $0.01 to adjusted EPS in fiscal 2024.
  • Other additional guidance assumptions can be found in the accompanying investor presentation available at investor.campbellsoupcompany.com/events-and-presentations.

1 Growth rate adjusted for the Emerald nuts business, which was divested on May 30, 2023.

2 Adjusted EBIT in fiscal 2023 included approximately $14 million and adjusted EPS included approximately $0.04 of litigation expenses related to the Plum baby food and snacks business, which was divested on May 3, 2021. We will exclude these costs from our fiscal 2024 adjusted EBIT and adjusted EPS and thereafter as we do not believe that these expenses reflect our underlying operating performance.

Note: A non-GAAP reconciliation is not provided for fiscal 2024 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.

Meals & Beverages

Net sales in the quarter were flat. Organic net sales increased 1% as increases in foodservice and Prego pasta sauces were partially offset by declines in beverages, U.S. soup and Canada. Net price realization of 6% was partially offset by modestly unfavorable volume / mix of 5%. Sales of U.S. soup decreased 2% primarily due to declines in ready-to-serve soups, partially offset by strong increases in broth and modest increases in condensed.

Operating earnings in the quarter decreased 18% primarily due to lower gross profit. Gross profit margin decreased due to higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs, as well as modestly unfavorable volume / mix, partially offset by net price realization and supply chain productivity improvements.

Snacks

Net sales in the quarter increased 8% and organic net sales increased 9% driven by sales of its 8 power brands, which were up 13%. Sales growth was driven by increases in cookies and crackers, primarily Goldfish crackers and Lance sandwich crackers, and in salty snacks, primarily Kettle Brand and Cape Cod potato chips. Sales benefited from net price realization of 13%, partially offset by modestly unfavorable volume / mix of 5%.

Operating earnings in the quarter increased 12% primarily due to higher gross profit, partially offset by higher marketing and selling expenses as well as higher administrative expenses. Gross profit margin increased due to the impact of net price realization and supply chain productivity improvements more than offsetting higher cost inflation and other supply chain costs as well as unfavorable volume / mix.

Corporate

Corporate expense was $17 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023 compared to $127 million in the prior year.

Corporate expense in the current quarter included the following:

  • $41 million of pension and postretirement actuarial gains;
  • $30 million of unrealized mark-to-market gains on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges;
  • $15 million of costs related to cost savings initiatives;
  • $13 million loss from the sale of the Emerald nuts business;
  • $7 million of accelerated amortization; and
  • $5 million of transaction costs associated with the pending acquisition of Sovos Brands.

Corporate expense in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 included:

  • $51 million of unrealized mark-to-market losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges;
  • $32 million of pension and postretirement actuarial losses; and
  • $11 million of costs related to cost savings initiatives.

After factoring in these items, the remaining increase in Corporate expense was primarily due to lower pension and postretirement benefit income and higher administrative expenses.

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Fiscal Year Ended July 30, 2023

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; unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on outstanding undesignated commodity hedges; gains or losses on the extinguishment of debt; gains or losses on divestitures; transaction costs; impairment charges or accelerated amortization. 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.

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, accelerated amortization, gains or losses on divestitures, transaction costs, and losses on the extinguishment of debt. 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:

(1)

In fiscal 2022, the company recorded Restructuring charges of $5 million and implementation costs and other related costs of $20 million in Administrative expenses, $5 million in Cost of products sold and $1 million in Marketing and selling expenses (aggregate impact of $24 million after tax, or $.08 per share) related to these initiatives.
