Cott Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results and Executes on Strategic Priorities

(Unless stated otherwise, all second quarter 2014 comparisons are relative to the second quarter of 2013; all information is in U.S. dollars. Certain terms used in this press release are defined below.)

TORONTO, ON and TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 31, 2014) - Cott Corporation (NYSE: COT) (TSX: BCB) today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 28, 2014.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Total volume increased 3% in 8oz equivalent cases and 4% in servings excluding Aimia Foods volume. Excluding concentrate and Aimia Foods, volume was lower by 1% in 8oz equivalent cases and flat in servings.

  • Revenue of $551 million was lower by 2% compared to $564 million.

  • Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue was flat at 13.6%. Reported gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 13.4% compared to 13.6%.

  • Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share were $17 million and $0.17, respectively, compared to adjusted net income of $20 million and adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.20 in the prior year. Reported net loss and loss per diluted share were $6.0 million and $0.06, respectively.

  • Adjusted free cash flow increased by $14 million to $34 million. Reported free cash flow was $18 million.

  • Consistent with Cott's recently announced strategic priorities designed to build long-term shareowner value:

    • Aimia Foods was acquired on May 30, 2014, with revenues of approximately $110 million and EBITDA of approximately $17 million for the twelve months ended March 29, 2014.

    • The North American Business Unit continued to expand its contract manufacturing business, growing by over 140% or 9 million 8oz equivalent cases, with two new contract manufacturing agreements signed during the quarter for an additional 13 to 16 million 8oz equivalent cases per year that will phase in across the fourth quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015.

    • Cott refinanced its 8.125% senior notes due in 2018, increased overall debt capacity, and reduced total interest cost with the completion of a private placement offering of $525 million of 5.375% senior notes due 2022.

    • Approximately $8.4 million was returned to shareowners through a quarterly dividend and share repurchases.

"Our global volume stabilized in the quarter as an 18% growth in our juice and drinks business, as well as an increase of more than 140% in North American contract manufacturing volumes, offset the continuing decline in North American carbonated soft drinks," commented Mr. Fowden Cott Chief Executive Officer. "This improving volume trend, alongside new contract manufacturing wins and our continued diversification, should put the business in a better position as we go forward," continued Mr. Fowden. "In addition, I am pleased with our continued strong cash generation and the return of over $8 million to shareholders within the quarter."

SECOND QUARTER 2014 GLOBAL PERFORMANCE 

  • Total volume increased 3% in 8oz equivalent cases and 4% in servings excluding Aimia Foods volume. Excluding concentrate and Aimia Foods, volume was lower by 1% in 8oz equivalent cases and flat in servings. Volume stabilized in the quarter as growth in juice and drinks volume, additional contract manufacturing wins and the addition of the Calypso business, offset the decline in North American carbonated soft drink ("CSD") volume, which resulted from continued aggressive promotional activity in large format retail stores by the national brands.

  • Revenue was lower by 2% (4% excluding the impact of foreign exchange) at $551 million. The revenue decline was due primarily to an overall product mix shift into contract manufacturing (the revenue associated with contract manufacturing does not include a charge for ingredients and packaging as the customer provides these commodities and also bears the risk of commodity cost increases) and the competitive pricing environment.

  • Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue was flat at 13.6%. Reported gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 13.4% compared to 13.6%.

  • Adjusted selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses of $45 million were higher by $4 million ($3 million excluding the impact of foreign exchange) or 10% compared to $41 million. This increase in SG&A expenses was due primarily to lower employee-related incentive costs in the prior year and the addition of SG&A expenses associated with the Calypso and Aimia Foods businesses.

  • Interest expense decreased by 35% to $8.4 million. The decline in interest expense was due primarily to the redemption of Cott's 8.375% senior notes due 2017 and the prior year amendment of its asset based lending facility to more favorable pricing terms.

  • Other expense was $19.8 million compared to nil predominantly as a result of $19.4 million in costs associated with the purchase of $296 million of the 8.125% senior notes due 2018 ("2018 Notes") in the quarter in a cash tender offer.

  • Income tax expense was approximately $3 million compared to $2 million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $56 million compared to $61 million. The reduction in Adjusted EBITDA was due primarily to the increase in SG&A expenses, the general market deterioration in the private label North American CSD category and increased freight costs primarily from internal transfers associated with the initial start-up and expansion of contract manufacturing volumes, offset in part by a product mix shift into higher margin products. Reported EBITDA was $32 million compared to $58 million.

  • Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share were $17 million and $0.17, respectively, compared to adjusted net income of $20 million and adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.20 in the prior year. Reported net loss and loss per diluted share were $6.0 million and $0.06, respectively, compared to reported net income and earnings per diluted share of $17 million and $0.17, respectively, in the prior year.

  • Adjusted free cash flow was $34 million excluding the $16 million in cash costs associated with the purchase of $296 million of the 2018 Notes. Reported free cash flow was $18 million, reflecting $30 million of net cash provided by operating activities less $12 million of capital expenditures.

SECOND QUARTER 2014 REPORTING SEGMENT PERFORMANCE 

  • North America volume increased 1% in 8oz equivalent cases and in servings. Excluding concentrate volume, volume was lower by 3% in 8oz equivalent cases and in servings. Revenue was lower by 11% (10% excluding the impact of foreign exchange) at $374 million due primarily to an overall product mix shift into contract manufacturing (the revenue associated with contract manufacturing does not include a charge for ingredients and packaging as the customer provides these commodities and also bears the risk of commodity cost increases) and the competitive pricing environment.

  • U.K. volume increased 1% in 8oz equivalent cases and 4% in servings excluding Aimia Foods volume. Excluding concentrate and Aimia Foods, volume increased 3% in 8oz equivalent cases and 6% in servings. Revenue increased 24% (14% excluding the impact of foreign exchange) at $159 million due primarily to additional revenues from the Calypso business and a small contribution from the Aimia Foods business in June.

  • All Other revenue increased 3% to $18 million. Cott's All Other reporting segment includes Cott's Mexico operating segment, Royal Crown International operating segment and other miscellaneous expenses (prior year information has been updated to reflect this change in reporting segments made in the fourth quarter of 2013).

SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

Cott repurchased approximately 370,000 shares at an average price of $7.10 totaling approximately $2.6 million during the second quarter under its share repurchase program. Cott intends to manage this program opportunistically, and based on Cott's current view of the operating environment, expects to return up to 50% of free cash flows to its shareowners via an ongoing dividend and share repurchases.

The share repurchase program authorizes the repurchase of up to 5% of Cott's outstanding common shares over a 12-month period commencing on May 22, 2014, subject to compliance with the annual limits established by the Toronto Stock Exchange. Cott may repurchase its common shares under the program in open market transactions and privately negotiated repurchases through either a 10b5-1 automatic trading plan or at management's discretion in compliance with regulatory requirements, and given market, cost and other considerations.

There can be no assurance as to the precise number of shares, if any, that will be repurchased under the share repurchase program in the future, or the aggregate dollar amount of the shares actually purchased. Cott may discontinue purchases at any time, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Shares purchased pursuant to the share repurchase program are cancelled.

Defined Terms

Certain defined terms used in this press release include the following. "GAAP" means U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. "Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue" means GAAP gross profit excluding purchase accounting inventory step-up, divided by GAAP revenue. "Adjusted net income (loss)" means GAAP earnings (loss) excluding purchase accounting adjustments, integration expenses, restructuring expenses and bond redemption costs. "Adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted share" means adjusted net income (loss) divided by diluted weighted average outstanding shares. "EBITDA" means GAAP earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. "Adjusted EBITDA" means GAAP earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding purchase accounting adjustments, integration expenses, restructuring expenses and bond redemption costs. "Adjusted SG&A" means GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding acquisition and integration costs. "Free cash flow" is GAAP net cash provided by operating activities excluding capital expenditures. "Adjusted free cash flow" is free cash flow excluding bond redemption cash costs. See the accompanying reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the corresponding GAAP measures, as well as the "Non-GAAP Measures" paragraph below.

With the acquisition of Aimia Foods, Cott has further diversified its product portfolio to include food and beverage products that are typically measured for consumption on an individual serving size basis rather than in the 8 oz. equivalent measurement that Cott has used historically to report its volumes. As a result, Cott has determined to report its volumes on an individual serving size basis by converting its volume into servings based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines for single-serving sizes of its products. Previously reported volumes in prior periods have been adjusted to conform to this new measurement standard.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement its reporting of financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, Cott utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures. Cott excludes from GAAP revenue the impact of foreign exchange to separate the impact of currency exchange rate changes from Cott's results of operations. Cott utilizes adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted SG&A to separate the impact of certain items from the underlying business. Because Cott uses these adjusted financial results in the management of its business, management believes this supplemental information is useful to investors for their independent evaluation and understanding of Cott's underlying business performance and the performance of its management. Additionally, Cott supplements its reporting of net cash provided by operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP by excluding capital expenditures to present free cash flow, and by excluding bond redemption cash costs to present adjusted free cash flow, which management believes provides useful information to investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that, after the acquisition of property and equipment as well as after bond redemption costs, can be used for strategic opportunities, including investing in our business, making strategic acquisitions, paying dividends, and strengthening the balance sheet. The non-GAAP financial measures described above are in addition to, and not meant to be considered superior to, or a substitute for, Cott's financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings announcement reflect management's judgment of particular items, and may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
