Rogers Sugar Inc.: Interim Report for the 2nd Quarter 2011 Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Rogers Sugar Inc. (TSX:RSI)

Increase in Consumer and Industrial Volumes Over Last Year's Comparable Period.

Taber Total Acreage to Be Planted This Spring Estimated at 34,000 Acres.

Message to Shareholders: On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the unaudited consolidated financial results of Rogers Sugar Inc. (the "Company") for the three and six months ended April 2, 2011.

Volume for the second quarter was 155,501 metric tonnes, as opposed to 153,103 metric tonnes in the comparable quarter of last year, an increase of approximately 2,400 metric tonnes. Year-to-date volume of 315,197 metric tonnes is approximately 5,700 metric tonnes higher than last year. Industrial volume was higher by approximately 4,900 metric tonnes during the quarter and 8,300 metric tonnes year-to-date due in large part to increases from existing customers in their overall business and timing in deliveries. Consumer volume was higher by approximately 4,600 metric tonnes for the quarter and approximately 6,800 metric tonnes year-to-date when compared to the comparable periods of fiscal 2010. The increase for the quarter was due mainly to aggressive promotions run by certain retailers and additional business contracted in the second half of 2010, which also explains the year-to-date increase. Export volume was lower by approximately 500 metric tonnes for the quarter but higher by approximately 5,500 metric tonnes year-to-date. The decrease for the quarter is due mainly to timing in deliveries against our Canadian quota while the increase year-to-date is due mainly to the completion of sales commitments initiated in 2010 under the U.S. Tier II duty program. Liquid volume decreased by approximately 6,600 metric tonnes for the quarter and 15,000 metric tonnes year-to-date, as the decline in this segment continued as a result of higher values of raw sugar versus lower priced high fructose corn syrup.

Since the adoption of the accounting policies for derivative financial instruments the Company's operating results are now subject to significant fluctuations. These fluctuations are due to the mark-to-market of all derivative financial instruments and embedded derivatives in non-financial instruments at the end of the reporting period. This accounting income does not represent a complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the business. We therefore prepared adjusted gross margin and adjusted earnings results to reflect the performance of the Company during the reporting period comparable to the earnings reported in previous periods. All these non-GAAP adjustments are explained in detail in the Management's Discussion and Analysis prepared for the quarter ended April 2, 2011. At the end of the second quarter, a net loss adjustment of $1.8 million before income taxes was recorded due to mark-to-market evaluation, thus reducing earnings before income taxes by that amount. Year-to-date, a mark-to-market net gain adjustment of $12.7 million before income taxes was recorded. Most of this year-to-date gain is due to the increase in the price of raw sugar and natural gas since September 30, 2010. These mark-to-market charges are also adjusted in the free cash flow calculation.

For the quarter, adjusted gross margin decreased by approximately $1.7 million, when compared to the same quarter of last year. On a per metric tonne basis, adjusted gross margin was $89.26 as compared to $101.72 for the comparable quarter of last year. The reduction in adjusted gross margin per tonne is due mainly to raw sugar premiums incurred on the purchase of raw cane sugar on a spot basis slightly offset by higher margins earned from a better sales mix and from Taber's domestic beet sugar sales. Year-to-date adjusted gross margin was $1.7 million lower than last year's comparable period while the gross margin rate was $127.85 as compared to $135.85 in fiscal 2010. Again the decrease in the year-to-date adjusted gross margin rate is due mainly to raw sugar premiums incurred on approximately 50,000 metric tonnes of raw cane sugar purchased since the start of the year partially offset by higher margins earned from a better sales mix and from Taber's domestic beet sugar sales.

Adjusted EBIT of $6.5 million was $2.8 million lower than last year's comparable quarter due mainly to the lower gross margin of $1.7 million and higher administrative costs of $1.1 million. The higher administrative costs were the result of one-time costs incurred for the conversion from an income trust to a corporation of approximately $0.3 million, reorganization costs of $0.3 million and timing in expenses. Year-to-date adjusted EBIT of $26.3 million was $2.8 million lower than last year due again to lower gross margins of $1.7 million and higher administrative costs of $1.1 million for the reasons mentioned above.

For the quarter, free cash flow was $3.6 million as compared to $7.1 million in fiscal 2010. Year-to-date free cash flow was $21.9 million, a decrease of $4.0 million from last year's comparable period. The decrease in the second quarter and year-to-date free cash flow was due in large part to the new corporate structure where income taxes are paid by Rogers on its net income. The current income tax expense, for the second quarter, includes an amount of $2.3 million of current income taxes at the parent company level and accounts for a large part of the shortfall in free cash flow from the previous comparable period. The remaining shortfall of $1.2 million was due mainly to the lower operating profits. The Company, under the new corporate structure, declared its first quarterly dividend of 8.5 cents per share for a total payout of $7.5 million.

As we stated in our last quarterly release, raw sugar supply was very tight earlier in the year and still remains tight for prompt shipments. Significant premiums to the #11 raw sugar values are being charged for nearby raw sugar deliveries. In December 2010, the Company contracted approximately 25% of its remaining raw sugar needs for fiscal 2011 as the other 75% had been contracted well in advance under long term agreements. These new contracts were at significant premiums to the market which had a negative impact on our adjusted gross margin rate to date and will continue to negatively impact our gross margin rate for the balance of the fiscal year.

In December 2010 we also negotiated new long-term contracts with raw sugar suppliers for approximately 75% of our estimated raw sugar requirements through June 2014. These contracts will protect the Company from large premiums should the raw sugar market retain its current supply environment.

A total of 34,000 acres are expected to be planted this spring in Taber. Under normal growing and harvesting conditions, this should derive approximately 110,000 metric tonnes of beet sugar for fiscal 2012. Depending on the weather growing conditions, the beet slicing campaign may start in early September, which should mitigate distribution costs incurred for shipments of bulk sugar from Vancouver to Taber and potentially improve the extraction rate of next year's sugar beets.

On December 1, 2010, the Canadian Sugar Institute ("CSI") filed an application with the Federal Court of Appeal for judicial review of the decision by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal ("CITT") to rescind its order against dumped and subsidized refined sugar from the European Union ("EU"). The application requested that the matter be referred back to the CITT to reconsider the evidence taking into account any instructions of the Court. The CSI also asked the Federal Court to issue a direction to the CITT that, if the EU order is restored, antidumping and countervailing duties shall be payable on all EU sugar imported into Canada on or after November 1, 2010, as if the EU order had not been rescinded. On January 12, 2011, the CITT sent a letter to the Court indicating that it will not be intervening in the proceeding. On March 11, 2011, the Court granted the Attorney General of Canada leave to withdraw from the proceeding. The CSI's application is continuing unopposed by the CITT and the Government of Canada. A decision is expected later this year.

MANAGEMENTS' DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

On January 1, 2011 Rogers Sugar Inc. ("Rogers"), completed the conversion from an income trust to a corporation pursuant to a plan of arrangement under section 192 of the Canada Business Corporation Act. Pursuant to the plan of arrangement, unitholders exchanged each trust unit of Rogers Sugar Income Fund (the "Fund") on a one-for-one basis for shares of Rogers. Rogers is considered a continuation of the Fund and as such the year-to-date results and comparable financial results include the financial results of the Fund to December 31, 2010. All references to shares, dividends and shareholders in this Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") pertain to common shares and common shareholders subsequent to the conversion and units, distributions and unitholders prior to the conversion.

This MD&A should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements and notes thereto in this quarterly report. The quarterly consolidated financial statements and any amounts shown in this MD&A were not reviewed or audited by our external auditors.

In analyzing our results, we supplement our use of financial measures that are calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), with a number of non-GAAP financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical performance, financial position or cash flow that excludes (includes) amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding (including) amounts, that are included (excluded) in most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized; therefore, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar businesses. We strongly encourage investors to review our consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business.

In the MD&A, we discuss the non-GAAP financial measures, including the reasons that we believe that these measures provide useful information regarding our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and financial position, as applicable and, to the extent material, the additional purposes, if any, for which these measures are used. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are contained in the MD&A.

This report contains certain forward-looking statements which reflect the current expectations of Rogers and Lantic Inc., (collectively the "Company") with respect to future events and performance. Wherever used, the words "may," "will," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," "plan," "believe," and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These financial statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Although this is not an exhaustive list, the Company cautions investors that statements concerning the following subjects are, or are likely to be, forward-looking statements: future prices of raw sugar, natural gas costs, the opening of special refined sugar quotas in the United States, beet production forecasts, the status of labour contracts and negotiations, the level of future dividends and the status of government regulations and investigations. Forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by the Company in light of their experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that the Company believes are appropriate and reasonable in the circumstances, but there can be no assurance that such estimates and assumptions will prove to be correct. This could cause actual performance or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements, historical results or current expectations.

Additional information relating to Rogers and Lantic Inc., including the Annual Information Form, Quarterly and Annual reports and supplementary information is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

This Management's Discussion and Analysis is dated May 4, 2011.

Internal controls disclosure

In accordance with Regulation 52-109 respecting certification of disclosure in issuers' interim filings, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have designed or caused to be designed under their supervision, disclosure controls and procedures.

In the normal course of business, the Company uses derivative financial instruments consisting of sugar futures, foreign exchange forward contracts, natural gas futures and interest rate swaps. The Company's operating company sells refined sugar to some clients in US dollars. These sales contracts are viewed as having an embedded derivative if the functional currency of the customer is not US dollars, the embedded derivative being the source currency of the transaction, U.S. dollars. Derivative financial instruments and embedded derivatives are marked-to-market at each reporting date, with the unrealized gain/loss charged to the consolidated statement of operations with a corresponding offsetting amount charged to the balance sheet.

Management believes that the Company's financial results are more meaningful to management, investors, analysts and any other interested parties when financial results are adjusted by the gains/losses from financial derivative instruments and from embedded derivatives for which adjusted financial results provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. This measurement is a non-GAAP measurement.

Management uses the non-GAAP adjusted results of the operating company to measure and evaluate the performance of the business through its adjusted gross margin, adjusted EBIT, adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share. In addition, management believes that these measures are important to our investors and parties evaluating our performance and comparing such performances to our past results. Management also uses adjusted gross margin, adjusted EBIT, adjusted net earnings and adjusted earnings per share when discussing results with the Board of Directors, analysts, investors, banks and other interested parties.

The results of operations would therefore need to be adjusted by the following:

Total adjustment to cost of sales$(2,321)$(26,969)$11,153$(24,980)

A significant part of the above mark-to-market adjustment relates to the movement of raw sugar prices during the quarter and year-to-date. There was a decline in world raw sugar values during the quarter and as a consequence, a mark-to-market loss of $10.7 million was recorded on raw sugar futures contracts for the quarter, while a gain of $5.0 million was recorded year-to-date. In the comparable periods of fiscal 2010 a loss of $25.1 million was recorded for the quarter and of $20.1 million year-to-date. Since the start of the fiscal year natural gas costs increased slightly and as a result, a mark-to-market gain of $1.5 million was recorded in the quarter and a gain of $4.8 million was recorded year-to-date as compared to a loss of $3.5 million for the comparable quarter and year-to-date of fiscal 2010. Foreign exchange contracts and embedded derivatives on which foreign exchange movements have an impact, had a combined mark-to-market loss of $1.7 million for the quarter and of $2.4 million year-to-date. For the comparable period the combined mark-to-market adjustment for foreign exchange contracts and embedded derivatives was a loss of $2.8 million for the quarter and a loss of $2.4 million for the year-to-date. The total net adjustment to cost of sales was a loss of $2.3 million for the quarter and a gain of $11.2 million for the year-to-date, as opposed to a loss of $27.0 million for the comparable quarter and a loss of $25.0 million year-to-date.

In addition, the Company recorded a mark-to-market gain of $0.6 million for the quarter, and of $1.5 million year-to-date, on the mark-to-market of an interest swap under short-term interest expense as opposed to a gain of $0.5 million for the comparable quarter of $0.9 million for year-to-date for the comparable periods in fiscal 2010.

The following table shows the adjusted consolidated results (non-GAAP) without the above mark-to-market adjustment:

The second quarter volume increased by approximately 2,400 metric tonnes, as compared to the comparable quarter of fiscal 2010. The increase is due mainly to higher industrial and consumer volumes partially offset by lower export and liquid volume. Industrial volume was higher by approximately 4,900 metric tonnes due in large part to increases in volume from existing customers and timing in deliveries. Consumer volume increased by approximately 4,600 metric tonnes during the quarter due in large part to aggressive promotions run by certain retailers and additional business contracted in 2010. Export volume was lower by approximately 500 metric tonnes due to timing of deliveries against the U.S. specific Canadian quota. Liquid volume decreased by approximately 6,600 metric tonnes due to the loss of some HFCS substitutable business as a result of high raw sugar values versus lower priced HFCS.

Year-to-date volume increased by approximately 5,700 metric tonnes due mainly to higher industrial volume of 8,300 metric tonnes, consumer volume of 6,800 metric tonnes and of higher export volume of 5,500 metric tonnes. This was partially offset by lower liquid volume of 15,000 metric tonnes. The year-to-date increase in industrial and consumer volumes and decrease in the liquid volume are for the reasons mentioned above. The year-to-date increase in the export volume is due to the completion, during the first quarter, of sales initiatives of fiscal 2010 against the U.S. Tier II duty program.

Revenues for the quarter and year-to-date were $5.6 million and $13.5 million respectively, higher than the previous year's comparable periods due to the higher price of world raw sugar in fiscal 2011 than the comparable period of fiscal 2010 and to the slightly higher volume. The price of the world raw sugar traded in a range of 25 cents to 36 cents per pound for the quarter, reaching a high of 36.08 cents per pound in February 2011, which was higher than the comparable period last year.

As previously mentioned, gross margin of $11.6 million for the quarter does not reflect the economic margin of the Company, as it includes a loss of $2.3 million for the mark-to-market of derivative financial instruments, mainly as a result of the decline in world raw sugar values in March 2011. We will therefore comment on adjusted gross margin results.

For the quarter, adjusted gross margin decreased by $1.7 million, when compared to the same quarter of last year. On a per metric tonne basis, adjusted gross margins were $89.26 compared to $101.72 for the comparable quarter of last year. The decrease in gross margin rate is due mainly to large premiums paid for some of our raw sugar supply bought in the previous quarter. Most of the cane raw sugar is purchased in advance under long term contracts, but some volume is not committed due to the uncertainty of the total sales volume and of the Taber beet crop. During the quarter the Company incurred costs of approximately $2.4 million for such premiums over the normal values of the #11 raw sugar values. This was partially offset from higher gross margin due to a better sales mix and from a higher raw sugar value for Taber's domestic beet sugar sales. Year-to-date gross margin rate per metric tonne was $127.85 as compared to $135.85 for fiscal 2010. Year-to-date approximately $4.4 million has been incurred for premiums on raw sugar supply which again was partially offset by benefits incurred from a better sales mix and from higher raw sugar values for Taber's domestic beet sugar sales.

Administration and selling costs were $1.1 million higher than the comparable quarter and year-to-date, due mainly to expenses incurred for the conversion from an income trust to a corporation of approximately 0.3 million, to reorganization expenses of approximately $0.3 million and timing in expenses. Distribution costs were slightly higher for the quarter and approximately $0.2 million lower year-to-date due to timing of deliveries between Vancouver and Taber.

Interest expense for the quarter and year-to-date includes a mark-to-market gain of $0.6 million and $1.5 million respectively, applied on the 5-year, $70.0 million interest swap entered into in July 2008, as compared with a gain of $0.5 million and $0.9 million for the quarter and year-to-date of fiscal 2010. Without the above mark-to-market adjustment, interest expense for the quarter and year-to-date was lower by $0.8 and $0.9 respectively from last year comparable periods. In fiscal 2010 second quarter an amount of $0.6 million of deferred financing cost was expensed as a result of the early redemption of the 6.0% second series convertible unsecured subordinated debentures ("Second series debentures") accounting for most of the favourable variance of 2011.

The following is a summary of selected financial information of the consolidated financial statements and non-GAAP measures of the Fund for the last eight quarters.

Historically the first quarter (October to December) of the fiscal year is the best quarter for adjusted gross margins and adjusted net earnings due to the favourable sales mix of products sold. This is due to the increased sales of baked goods during that period of the year. At the same time, the second quarter (January to March) is historically the lowest volume quarter, resulting in lower adjusted gross margins, adjusted gross margin rate and adjusted net earnings.

Liquidity

The cash flow generated by the operating company, Lantic, is paid to Rogers by way of dividends and return of capital on the common shares of Lantic, and by the payment of interest on the subordinated notes of Lantic held by Rogers, after having taken reasonable reserve for capital expenditures and working capital. The cash received by Rogers is used to pay dividends to its shareholders.

Cash flow from operations was negative $24.6 million in the second quarter of 2011, as opposed to negative $21.9 million in the comparable quarter of fiscal 2010. Year-to-date cash flow from operations is negative $32.8 million as opposed to negative $21.2 million for the comparable period of fiscal 2010. The major reason for the decreased cash flow balances for the quarter and year-to-date is due to the much higher level of inventories and value of raw sugar in fiscal 2011 than for the same period last year. Raw sugar deliveries were delayed last year due to congestion at the Brazilian shipping ports and as a result the Company ran out of raw sugar on two different occasions. To prevent this from happening again the Company increased raw sugar inventories by approximately 20,000 metric tonnes. These inventories are expected to be reduced to a more standard level by the end of the fiscal year. The increase in the overall value of the inventories at the end of the period combined with the additional volume, accounts for $19.9 million of the cash flow deficit for the quarter.

Total capital expenditures were lower than the previous year, due mainly to timing in projects when compared to fiscal 2010.

The additional cash flow requirements for the quarter and year-to-date were funded by available cash reserves and additional short term borrowings of $20.0 million from the bank credit facility for the quarter.

In order to provide additional information the Company believes it is appropriate to measure free cash flow that is generated by the operations of the Company and can be compared to the level of dividend paid by Rogers. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations excluding changes in non-cash working capital, mark-to-market and derivative timing adjustments, financial instrument non-cash amount and capital expenditures. Free cash flow is a new non-GAAP measure presented in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 in connection with the conversion to an incorporated entity. Free cash flow for prior periods has been presented on a consistent basis.

Free cash flow is as follows:

Free cash flow was $3.5 million lower than the comparable quarter in fiscal 2010 and $4.0 lower year-to-date. With the new corporate structure, Rogers is now fully taxed and a provision of $2.3 million for current income taxes was recorded in the current quarter, at the Rogers level, versus nil for the comparable quarter last year. The remaining shortfall of $1.2 million is due mainly to the lower profitability at the operating level. It should be noted that the first calendar quarter (being the second fiscal quarter) is historically the lowest volume and profitable quarter of the fiscal year. The year-to-date shortfall in free cash flow of $4.0 million can similarly be explained by the additional current tax provision of $2.3 million and lower profitability at the operating level.

Changes in non-cash operating working capital represents quarter-over-quarter movement in current assets such as accounts receivable, inventories and current liabilities like accounts payable. Movements in these accounts are due mainly to timing in the collection of receivables, receipts of raw sugar and payment of liabilities. Increases or decreases in such accounts do not therefore constitute available cash for distribution. Such increases or decreases are financed from available cash or from the Company's available credit facility of $200 million. Increases or decreases in short-term bank indebtedness are also due to timing issues from the above, and therefore do not constitute available free cash flow.

Mark-to-market and financial instruments adjustments are due mainly to unrealized gains or losses on financial derivative instruments and are therefore non-cash amounts except for margin calls on net sugar positions.

Investment capital expenditures are added back to free cash flow as these capital projects are not necessary for the operation of the plants, but are undertaken due to their substantial operational savings to be realized once these projects are completed.

In fiscal 2011, 70,000 shares were issued under the Stock Option Plan for total proceeds of $275,000.

The Company, under the new corporate structure, declared its first quarterly dividend of 8.5 cents per share for a total payout of $7.5 million. On an annual basis, this amount is comparable, on an after-tax basis for taxable Canadian shareholders, to the distribution which was paid by the Fund.

Contractual obligations

There are no material changes in the contractual obligations table disclosed in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of the September 30, 2010 Annual Report.

At April 2, 2011, the operating company had commitments to purchase a total of 1,535,000 metric tonnes of raw sugar, of which only 31,300 metric tonnes had been priced, for a total dollar commitment of $21.8 million.

Capital resources

Lantic has $200.0 million as authorized line of credit available to finance its operation. At quarter's end, $90.0 million had been drawn from the working capital facility for working capital purposes. The increase from September 2010 is due mainly to the additional level of inventories and additional cost of such inventories as a result of higher world raw sugar values in March 2011.

Cash requirements for working capital and other capital expenditures are expected to be paid from available credit resources and funds generated from operations.

Outstanding securities

Year-to-date, 1,169,597 shares have been issued following the conversion of $5.965 million of the Third Series convertible unsecured subordinated debentures, at a conversion price of $5.10 per share. In addition 70,000 shares were issued under the Stock Option Plan year-to-date. As at May 4, 2011, there were 88,773,710 shares outstanding.

With the conversion of the Fund to Rogers on January 1, 2011, the stated capital of Rogers was reduced by the accumulated deficit as at December 31, 2010, of $276.5 million to $284.1 million. In addition following a Special Resolution passed by shareholders at the February 1, 2011 shareholders meeting, the stated capital was reduced by a further $200.0 million, to $84.1 million.

Changes in accounting policies and critical accounting estimates

Our accounting policies and critical accounting estimates remain substantially unchanged from those that were disclosed in our Management's Discussion and Analysis of the Annual Report for the year ended September 30, 2010.

International financial reporting standards ("IFRS")

In February 2008, the Canadian Accounting Standards Board ("AcSB") confirmed that publicly accountable enterprises will be required to adopt IFRS for interim and annual reporting purposes, for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. The Company will be required to begin reporting under IFRS for the quarter ending December 31, 2011 and will be required to prepare an opening balance sheet and provide information that conforms to IFRS for comparative periods presented.

The Company began planning the transition from current Canadian GAAP to IFRS by establishing a project plan and a project team. The project team is led by senior finance executives that provide overall project governance, management and support. The project team reports quarterly the progress made on the project to the Audit Committee, and discusses key findings and future accounting requirements.

The project plan consists of three phases: the initial assessment, detailed assessment and design, and implementation. The Company has completed the initial assessment phase, which included the completion of a high level review of the major differences between current Canadian GAAP and IFRS. The initial assessment also included training sessions for project team members and discussions with the Company's external auditors and advisors.

The Company is now engaged in the detailed assessment and design phase. The detailed assessment and design phase involves completing a comprehensive analysis of the impact of the IFRS differences identified in the initial assessment phase. The design of solutions to resolve these IFRS differences is progressing according to plan. The following are some of the significant differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS that have been identified to date and which are currently being evaluated:

  • Property, Plant and Equipment (International Accounting Standard ("IAS") 16): Under IFRS, components of capital assets with different useful lives must be identified to calculate depreciation. The Company is well advanced in the process of examining the componentization of capital assets having completed one plant and being in the process of completing the two remaining plants. After this process is complete the impact on depreciation under IFRS will be measured.
  • Borrowing Costs (IAS 23): Under IFRS, borrowing costs incurred during the period in which a qualifying capital asset is being constructed must be capitalized as part of the cost of the asset. Under the Company's current accounting policy, all borrowing costs are charged to earnings and included in interest expense. The Company expects to use an optional exemption in order to capitalize borrowing costs only for assets for which the commencement date for capitalization is on or after the transition date. Accordingly, the Company does not expect to record an opening IFRS balance sheet adjustment for borrowing costs incurred prior to the transition date.
  • Impairment of Assets (IAS 36): Under IFRS, assets need to be grouped in cash generating units ("CGUs") on the basis of independent cash inflows for impairment testing purposes, using a single-step-approach. The Company has determined its group of cash units to be used for the purpose of goodwill impairment testing. The Company has determined that there will be no goodwill impairment as at the date to the transition to IFRS.
  • Leases (IAS 17): The Company has entered into various leases which are accounted for as operating leases under Canadian GAAP. The Company is in the process of assessing whether or not the classification will change to a finance (capital) lease under IFRS.
  • Employee benefits (IAS 19): Under IFRS, vested past service costs under a defined benefit plan are immediately recognized in net earnings. As of the transition date, the Company is expected to record the balance of all vested past service costs against retained earnings. In addition, as permitted under IFRS, the Company is expect to recognize actuarial gains and losses as they occur in other comprehensive income, with no impact on net earnings.
  • Consolidation (IAS 27) and Special Purpose Entities (Standing Interpretations Committee ("SIC") 12): The Variable Interest Entity model of consolidation does not exist under IFRS. During the quarter, the Company completed its assessment of the impact of IAS 27 and SIC 12 and has determined that Lantic Inc., the wholly-owned subsidiary of Rogers should be consolidated. As a result we do not expect any changes as at the date of transition under IFRS.
  • Financial Instruments (IAS 32 and 39): From the transition date of October 1, 2010 to the day before the Fund converted to a corporation on January 1, 2011, the classification of the trust units have been determined to be equity classified, consistent with Canadian GAAP, due to modifications made to the Declaration of Trust on September 29, 2010. However, for that period, the conversion options of the convertible debentures have been determined to be embedded derivatives and the Unit Option Plan has been determined to be liability-classified share-based payment awards. The conversion options and share-based payment awards will become equity-classified on January 1, 2011 at the time of conversion to a corporation. The Company is currently in the process of computing the impact, which is currently not expected to be significant.
  • First time Adoption of IFRS (IFRS 1): The Company intends to use the business combinations exemption and not restate the accounting of past business acquisitions. The Company does not intend to apply the exemption to use fair value as deemed cost, rather it intends to keep property, plant and equipment at their original costs.

The transition plan remains on-track and the Company believes it is well positioned to transition to IFRS in accordance with the timelines mandated by the AcSB. The work completed to date suggests that there should be minimal impact on the Company's business processes, IT systems, disclosure controls and procedures, and internal controls over financial reporting. However, these preliminary conclusions may change as the Company continues to progress through its transition plan and considers any new IFRS developments leading up to the Company's changeover date.

Risk factors

Risk factors in the Company's business and operations are discussed in the Management's Discussion and Analysis of our Annual Report for the year ended September 30, 2010. This document is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com or on our website at www.rogerssugar.com.

OUTLOOK

The world raw sugar supply was very tight earlier in the fiscal year and as result substantial premiums over the # 11 raw sugar values are being charged for nearby shipments. For fiscal 2011 the Company had contracted approximately 75% of its raw sugar requirement and the balance was contracted in December 2010 at significant premiums over the raw sugar values. These premiums had a negative impact on the first six months results and will continue to negatively impact the financial results for the remaining two quarters of the fiscal year.

New long term sugar supply contracts were negotiated at the end of the previous quarter with raw sugar suppliers for approximately 75% of our estimated raw sugar requirements through June 2014. These contracts will protect the Company from large premiums should the world raw sugar market retain its tight supply environment.

Approximately half of the remaining domestic beet sugar volume to be sold has been pre-hedged at values close to 20 cents per pound. We will continue to monitor the current raw sugar environment to ensure that the selling value of domestic beet sugar is maximized.

A total of approximately 34,000 acres are expected to be planted this spring in Taber. Under normal growing and harvesting conditions, this should result in approximately 110,000 metric tonnes of beet sugar for fiscal 2012. Depending on the weather growing conditions, the Taber plant may start the slicing campaign in early September, which should reduce distribution costs of Vancouver bulk transfers to Taber and improve the extraction rate of next year's sugar beets.

A significant portion of fiscal 2011's natural gas requirement has been hedged at average prices comparable to those realized in fiscal 2010. Any un-hedged volume should benefit from the current low prices of natural gas and therefore increase the adjusted gross margin rate. In addition, some futures positions for fiscal 2012 to 2014 have also been taken. Some of these positions are at prices higher than the current market values, but are at the same or at better levels than what was achieved in fiscal 2010. We will continue to monitor natural gas market dynamics with the objective of minimizing natural gas costs.

In the current volatile financial environment, return on pension plan assets may vary from historical plan performance. This, combined with the discount rate used in assessing the plan liabilities, may impact pension plan expenses in future years. The actuarial valuation of one plan was completed last year and as a result pension cash contributions were increased by approximately $1.0 million. The remaining three plans actuarial valuations will be completed shortly and it is anticipated that cash contributions will increase for these plans later in the year.

On December 1, 2010, the Canadian Sugar Institute ("CSI") filed an application with the Federal Court of Appeal for judicial review of the decision by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal ("CITT") to rescind its order against dumped and subsidized refined sugar from the European Union ("EU"). The application requested that the matter be referred back to the CITT to reconsider the evidence taking into account any instructions of the Court. The CSI also asked the Federal Court to issue a direction to the CITT that, if the EU order is restored, antidumping and countervailing duties shall be payable on all EU sugar imported into Canada on or after November 1, 2010, as if the EU order had not been rescinded. On January 12, 2011, the CITT sent a letter to the Court indicating that it will not be intervening in the proceeding. On March 11, 2011, the Court granted the Attorney General of Canada leave to withdraw from the proceeding. The CSI's application is continuing unopposed by the CITT and the Government of Canada. A decision is expected later this year.

Rogers Sugar Inc.
Notes to Interim Unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements
For the six months ended April 2, 2011 and March 31, 2010
(In thousands of dollars)

On January 1, 2011 Rogers Sugar Inc. ("Rogers" or the "Corporation"), completed the conversion from an income trust to a corporation pursuant to a Plan of Arrangement (the "Arrangement") under section 192 of the Canada Business Corporation Act. Pursuant to the Arrangement, unitholders exchanged each trust unit of Rogers Sugar Income Fund (the "Fund") for a common share of Rogers on a one-for-one basis.

The interim Consolidated Financial Statements follow the continuity of interest basis of accounting whereby the Corporation is considered a continuation of the Fund because there was no change in ownership of the Fund upon conversion. As a result, the comparative consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, consolidated statements of shareholders' equity and consolidated statements of cash flows include the Fund's results of operations for the period up to and including December 31, 2010 as previously reported and the Corporation's results of operations thereafter. All references to shares, dividends and shareholders in the interim Consolidated Financial Statements and notes pertain to common shares and common shareholders subsequent to the conversion and units, distributions and unitholders prior to conversion.

Note 1: Basis of presentation

These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). These interim unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all disclosures required by the Canadian GAAP and therefore should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto for the most recently prepared annual financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2010. These quarterly consolidated financial statements were not reviewed or audited by our external auditors.

Note 2: Accounting policies

These financial statements follow the same accounting policies and methods of their application as the most recent annual financial statements of the Fund for the year ended September 30, 2010.

Note 3: Derivative Financial Instruments

Details of recorded gains/losses for the quarter, in marking-to-market all derivative financial instruments and embedded derivatives are noted below. For sugar futures contracts (derivative financial instruments), the amounts noted below are netted with the variation margins paid or received to/from brokers at the end of the reporting period. Natural gas forwards and sugar futures have been marked-to-market using published quoted values for these commodities, while foreign exchange forward contracts have been marked-to-market using rates published by the financial institution which is counter-party to these contracts. The fair value of natural gas contracts, foreign exchange forward contracts and interest swap calculation include a credit risk adjustment for the Company's or counterparty's credit, as appropriate.

Note 4: Income taxes

With the conversion of the Company to a corporation on January 1, 2011, the entity is now subject to the combined federal and provincial income taxes like any conventional corporation. The income tax provision for the six months ended April 2, 2011 is as follows:

April 2, 2011
Earnings before provision for income taxes:$32,742
Adjustments:
Income directly taxed into the hands of unitholders to December 31, 2010(10,066)

20,894
Expected tax rate28%
Expected expense5,796
Adjustments:
Tax rate adjustment due to conversion to corporation(47)
Other157
110
Income tax expense5,906

Temporary differences have not changed significantly as a result of the conversion because temporary differences at the Fund level were already recorded for the post-conversion reversal period as required pursuant to Canadian GAAP, and as the structure of the corporate subsidiary Lantic Inc. has not changed as a result of the conversion,.

Note 5: Common shares

During the second quarter, $5,965 of the Third Series convertible unsecured subordinated debenture was converted by holders of the securities, for a total number of 1,169,597 common shares. This conversion is a non-cash transaction and therefore is not reflected in the statement of cash flows. In addition during the quarter a total of 70,000 common shares were issued after two executives exercised some options under the Share Option Plan. In the first quarter of fiscal 2010, $15 of the Second Series convertible unsecured subordinated debenture, outstanding at the time, was converted by holders of the securities for a total of 2,830 common shares

Note 6: Share capital

The authorized capital of the corporation consists of : (i) an unlimited number of voting common shares entitling its holders to receive, subject to the rights of the holders of preferred shares and any other class of shares ranking prior to the common shares, (a) non-cumulative dividends of the corporation and (b) the remaining property of the corporation upon its dissolution or winding-up; and (ii) a number of preferred shares issuable in series, at all times limited to fifty percent (50%) of the common shares outstanding at the relevant time, provided that no such preferred shares shall be used to block any takeover. On April 2, 2011 there were 88,773,710 common shares outstanding and no preferred shares issued or outstanding.

On January 1, 2011 the Directors of the Corporation approved the reduction of the share capital of Rogers Sugar Inc. without payment or reduction to its stated capital, by its accounting deficit at January 1, 2011. As a result the accounting deficit of $276,465 was reduced to nil and the same amount was applied against stated capital reducing the stated capital to $284,078.
