Ridley Inc. Reports Financial Results for Fiscal 2015 First Quarter

MANKATO, MINNESOTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 6, 2014) - Ridley Inc. (TSX:RCL) today reported its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2014. All currency amounts are stated in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted.

For the three months ended September 30, 2014, Ridley's adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("adjusted EBITDA") were $8.9 million compared to $6.7 million last year. Consolidated net income (after income taxes) for the quarter was $4.7 million ($0.36 per share) compared to $3.1 million ($0.24 per share) last year.

Ridley's results in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 reflect a favourable economic environment for producers of meat, milk and egg products that has supported growth in sales of animal nutrition products in most species segments. Consolidated gross profit increased by 13.4% to $20.1 million from $17.8 million in the first quarter last year. Sales volume in the first quarter increased by 8.3% while average unit margins were slightly higher as a result of a continuing trend towards higher value-added products.

Operating income (before income taxes) increased by $1.9 million or 37.4% to $7.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Ridley's U.S. Feed Operations (USFO) reported a $0.7 million increase in operating income for the period on sales growth in most species sectors. Ridley Block Operations (RBO) reported a $0.3 million increase in operating income over last year, mainly from continuation of profitable operating conditions for cattle producers. Ridley Feed Ingredients (RFI) reported operating income of $1.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, a $1.0 million increase over last year resulting from sales growth and improved unit margins. Ridley's share of net income of associate from its interest in Masterfeeds LP improved by $0.4 million in the first quarter this year over last year.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

This Management's Discussion and Analysis dated as at November 6, 2014 and the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended September 30, 2014 have been prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) which incorporate International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Results of Operations

Consolidated gross profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $20.1 million compared to $17.8 million in the same period last year. Gross profit is a key measure of the performance of Ridley's business and generally reflects the margin of net sales revenue over ingredient cost, less manufacturing expenses. The major driver of the 13.4% increase in gross profit in the first quarter this year was an 8.3% increase in overall tonnage volumes combined with a favourable product mix in most market segments. For much of last year and continuing in the current year to-date, livestock and poultry producers have benefited from the combination of high prices for their meat, milk and egg products and lower trending costs for corn and other commodities. In this positive economic environment for producers, demand has been sustained for higher value-added animal nutrition products.

Direct production costs and manufacturing overheads, which are included in gross profits, increased by 7.3% in the first quarter over last year, largely in line with increased sales volumes. Labor, employee benefit expense and utilities accounted for most of the increase in manufacturing costs in the first quarter this year.

Operating expenses, which include technical services, selling, and administrative, and research and development costs, were $13.0 million in the first quarter compared to $12.6 million last year. Earnings exceptions, which are also included in operating expenses, were $0.4 million (pre-tax) in the first quarter last year for the gain on the sale of the site of the former Castleton, Indiana facility and $0.2 million (pre-tax) for the asset impairment loss from the closure of the Chambersburg, Pennsylvania facility. There were no exceptions in the first quarter of the current fiscal year. Excluding exceptions, the increase of $0.2 million in operating expenses this year mainly reflects increased employee benefits expense.

Operating income (before income taxes) increased by $1.9 million or 37.4% to $7.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Each of the operating divisions of Ridley reported increased operating income on increased sales in the first quarter this year over the same period last year.

Ridley owns a non-controlling interest in Masterfeeds LP, an animal nutrition business in Canada formed in 2012 by the merger of Ridley's Canadian feed operations with that of Ag Processing Inc. Ridley's share of the earnings of the Masterfeeds limited partnership is reported as share of net income or loss of associate, which in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was income of $0.4 million.

Net income (net of income tax expense) for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $4.7 million ($0.36 per share) compared to $3.1 million ($0.24 per share) in the same period of fiscal 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA is comprised of operating income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and exceptions. Operating income is defined as net income before finance expense, finance income, income tax expense and share of net income or loss of associate. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, adjusted EBITDA was $8.9 million compared to $6.7 million for the same period last year. The main part of the increase of $2.2 million in adjusted EBITDA reflects a $1.9 million increase in operating income this year and $0.2 million of offsetting exceptions in the prior year.

The following table is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most closely comparable GAAP measure to adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted EBITDA Three Months Ended

Ridley reports its financial results according to IFRS that have been incorporated into the CPA Canada Handbook. However, Ridley has included in this management discussion and analysis certain non-IFRS financial measures and ratios that it believes provide useful information in measuring the financial performance and financial condition of Ridley. These measures and ratios do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other public companies, nor should they be construed as an alternative to other financial measures described by IFRS.

Comprehensive Income

Comprehensive income (loss) is the change in net assets that results from transactions, events and circumstances from sources other than investments by and/or distributions to shareholders. Accumulated other comprehensive income is comprised entirely of unrealized gains and losses on translation of financial statements of related entities with foreign functional currency to U.S. dollar reporting currency. Comprehensive income for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $3.4 million, which was comprised of net income of $4.7 million, as reported above, less unrealized losses of $1.2 million on the translation of the financial statements of related entities with foreign functional currency to U.S. dollar reporting currency.

SEGMENT RESULTS

The following is a summary of consolidated operating income (loss) of the reporting segments of the Company's operations for the first quarters of fiscal 2015 and 2014. "Corporate" in this presentation includes the consolidating elimination of intersegment sales.

Operating Income (Loss) Three Months Ended
September 30
($000) 2014 2013
U.S. Feed Operations (USFO) 3,074 2,406
Ridley Feed Ingredients (RFI) 1,366 375
Ridley Block Operations (RBO) 3,510 3,215
Corporate (843 ) (824 )
Consolidated operating income 7,107 5,172

U.S. Feed Operations (USFO)

The USFO segment consists of twenty full-line production facilities, operating in the United States as Hubbard Feeds. USFO plants derive most of their business from manufacturing and marketing a broad range of complete feeds, supplements and premixes to meat, milk and egg producers, and owners of equine and companion animals located mostly in the Midwestern United States.

Tonnage volume increased by 6.3% in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to last year. Volume in the quarter was higher relative to last year due to strong sales in the dairy, swine and beef sectors, which continue to respond positively to good producer economics this year. Gross profits in the first quarter this year were $11.3 million compared to $10.3 million in the same period last year. The $1.0 million increase in gross profits reflects increased tonnage volume in the period and improved unit margins in dairy and lifestyle products that largely offset increased production costs.

Operating expenses increased by $0.3 million in the first quarter this year. Operating expenses last year included a $0.4 million gain on the sale of property from a closed feed manufacturing facility and a $0.2 million asset impairment loss on the Chambersburg, Pennsylvania facility which was closed following the first quarter last year. Excluding these exceptions from last year, USFO operating expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased by $0.1 million over last year. Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $3.1 million, an increase of $0.7 million over last year.

Ridley Feed Ingredients (RFI)

The RFI segment manufactures and distributes vitamin and trace mineral premixes, small packaged specialty products, medicated and non-medicated feed additives, and micro feed ingredients to customers throughout North America from its production facility in Mendota, Illinois.

Revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, including intersegment sales, increased by $6.0 million or 22.6% over the same period last year as a result of sales growth in most value-added product categories. Gross profit of $2.5 million in the first quarter increased by $1.0 million over last year, mainly the result of increased sales and improved unit margins. Operating expenses in the first quarter were not materially changed from the prior year. Operating income for the first quarter was $1.4 million, an increase of $1.0 million over last year reflecting the increase in gross profit for the period.

Ridley Block Operations (RBO)

The RBO segment manufactures and markets a complete range of block supplements, including low moisture, pressed, compressed, composite and poured blocks, minerals, and dried molasses from eight U.S. facilities.

RBO's tonnage volume in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased by 5.6% over last year, mainly from a continuation of favourable producer economics in the beef sector. Gross profits of $6.4 million in the first quarter this year increased by $0.4 million or 6.5% over last year reflecting increased sales volumes. Operating expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased by $0.1 million from last year, mainly the result of higher administrative expenses. Operating income increased over last year by $0.3 million in the first quarter in line with the increase in gross profits, partly offset by increased operating expenses.

Net working capital balances increased by $0.5 million in the three months between June 30, 2014 and September 30, 2014. Accounts receivable were higher by $5.5 million from the prior quarter on seasonally increased sales revenues. Inventories were lower by $3.1 million reflecting the management of raw material stocks in response to tighter supply conditions for certain feed ingredients. Income taxes payable were also higher by $2.2 million.

Net debt of $16.3 million as at September 30, 2014 was comprised of a $15.6 million balance in revolving credit and $1.8 million in outstanding cheques less $1.1 million of cash and short term deposits.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures on property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets (software) in the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were $2.3 million, compared to $1.5 million in the same period a year ago. Increased capital expenditures this year reflect the initiation of two facility expansion projects. RBO is constructing a new $8.0 million feed supplement block manufacturing facility adjacent to its existing facility in Flemingsburg, Kentucky. RFI has commenced construction of a $4.5 million addition to its facility in Mendota, Illinois. Both projects are expected to be completed in fiscal 2016.

Investment in Masterfeeds LP

Masterfeeds LP ("Masterfeeds") is a limited partnership formed by the merger in 2012 of the Canadian livestock and poultry feed and nutrition businesses of Ridley Inc. and Ag Processing Inc. Ridley retains a non-controlling equity interest in Masterfeeds, reported as an investment in associate, which was $17.9 million as at September 30, 2014. Results of the Company's Canadian operations were reported in fiscal 2013 and 2014 as net income from discontinued operations.

On December 18, 2013 a fire at the Humboldt, Saskatchewan feed plant owned and operated by Masterfeeds caused significant damage to the building structure and manufacturing equipment forcing the facility to close while repairs are made. The cost of repairs to the damaged structure and equipment is expected to be substantially covered by insurance. Production at the facility will resume on a staged basis in the spring of 2015.

Outstanding Share Data

The Company's share capital consists of an unlimited number of common shares authorized with no par value. On December 12, 2013, the Company received approval from The Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to initiate a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") for the Company's shares through the facilities of the TSX. The shares repurchase program permits the Company to purchase for cancellation up to 639,499 of its common shares over the twelve-month period ending December 15, 2014. As at November 6, 2014, the Company had not repurchased any shares under the current NCIB. The number of shares outstanding as at September 30, 2014 and as at November 6, 2014 was 12,789,978.

(iii) Net income in fiscal 2013 and 2014 reflects the Company's adoption of amendments to IAS 19.

SEASONALITY AND COMMODITY VARIABILITY

The Company experiences seasonal variations in revenue. Historically, revenue is strongest in the second and third fiscal quarters when colder weather from October to March typically increases demand for beef cattle feed. Other product lines are only marginally affected by seasonal conditions. Certain of the raw materials comprising the Company's products incorporate commodity-based products and the by-products of commodity processing. Fluctuating commodity prices may therefore influence revenues and associated cost of sales as the Company's selling prices are adjusted to reflect current raw materials markets.

INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

The Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have each signed form "52-109F2 - Certification of Interim Filings" and filed it with the appropriate securities regulators in Canada in compliance with National Instrument 52-109: Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings issued by the Canadian Securities Administrators. There has been no change in Ridley's internal controls over financial reporting or disclosure controls and procedures that occurred during the most recent interim period that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, Ridley's internal control over financial reporting.

Ridley cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon forward-looking statements.

OUTLOOK

The major external drivers of Ridley's animal nutrition business are the prevailing economic conditions for producers of meat, milk and egg products, as well as market dynamics for feed ingredients purchased by producers or used as raw materials in the production of feed products, and weather related factors that affect the availability and quality of pastures and forages for livestock. Ridley's sales tonnage volume last year (fiscal 2014) was sustained by a positive economic environment for livestock and poultry producers and a favourably cold, snowy winter. Current economic conditions remain generally favourable for producers of meat, milk and egg products. Most feed grains and ingredient prices are lower at the present time relative to last year, which is beneficial for producers' cost of production. The contraction of herd populations during previous periods of high feed costs continues to provide support to producer prices in most sectors of livestock and poultry production.

Drought conditions that stimulate demand for feed supplementation have tended to be a positive factor for Ridley in prior years; however, at the present time, in most of Ridley's trading area in the Southeastern and Midwestern states, pastures are green and forage availability is high. Lower trending prices for feed ingredients, which generally move in tandem with commodities, tend to be a negative factor for Ridley's unit margins through the effect on the value of raw material inventories and the margin between ingredient cost and market driven prices of feed products. Consequently, the potential for volatility in feed ingredient prices and the abundance of livestock forage in much of the Midwest will be amongst the more significant drivers of Ridley's results in fiscal 2015.

Ridley Inc., headquartered in Mankato, Minnesota, is one of North America's leading commercial animal nutrition companies. Ridley employs approximately 700 people in the manufacture, sales and marketing of a full range of animal nutrition products under highly regarded trade names. Ridley's common shares are listed on The Toronto Stock Exchange (trading symbol: RCL).
