Bob Evans Farms, Inc (NASDAQ: BOBE) today announced its results for the fiscal 2013 first quarter ended Friday, July 27, 2012.

First-quarter fiscal 2013 commentary

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Steve Davis said, "The actions we took during the first quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect confidence in our Company's growth prospects. Despite volatility in commodity markets, and ongoing economic challenges for our customers, we continue to drive sales with our successful value platforms and invest in growth projects. 

"We are encouraged by positive sales results at Bob Evans Restaurants and BEF Foods, with sequential moderation in Mimi's Cafe's sales trend during the first quarter.  Our teams are committed to building on the sales momentum we have achieved.  From ongoing investments in new restaurants and our Farm-Fresh Refresh remodeling initiative at Bob Evans Restaurants, to the acquisition of Kettle Creations to help drive margin gains and enable vertical integration of a portion of BEF Foods' refrigerated side dish business, we are delivering on the key pillars of our operating strategy:  transforming our businesses, investing in high return on invested capital opportunities, and driving shareholder value.

"We plan to continue employing our strong balance sheet to drive growth projects going forward," Davis said.  "Where prudent, we will investigate options for accelerating investments that are generating high returns, such as the Farm-Fresh Refresh remodeling program at Bob Evans Restaurants.  Furthermore, our approach to capital allocation will remain balanced between growth investments that support our long-term annual adjusted EPS growth guidance of 7 to 10 percent, and return of capital to our shareholders through dividends and share repurchases."

First-quarter fiscal 2013 consolidated results

The Company reported consolidated operating income of $25.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The first-quarter results include the negative net pretax impact of $2.1 million, or $1.4 million after-tax, from the following items:

  • $0.8 million in severance charges that increased Bob Evans Restaurants' SG&A line.
  • $0.8 million in severance charges that increased BEF Foods' other operating and SG&A lines.
  • $0.4 million charge for acquisition costs and plant related severance costs that increased BEF Foods' SG&A line. 
  • $0.1 million charge for a loss on the sale of assets that increased Bob Evans Restaurants' SG&A line.

Excluding the $2.1 million negative net impact of these charges, the Company's first quarter fiscal 2013 reported operating income would have been approximately $27.4 million, or 6.7 percent of net sales.

Earnings per diluted share for first quarter of fiscal 2013 were reported at $0.53.  Excluding the net negative impact of the aforementioned charges, diluted earnings per share would have been $0.58.

The Company reported consolidated operating income of $27.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The first-quarter fiscal 2012 results did not include special charges.  Earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 were $0.59

The Company's net interest expense was $2.1 million in both the first quarter of fiscal 2013, and the first quarter of fiscal 2012.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the tax rate recorded by the Company was 35.3%, compared to 29.8% for the first quarter of fiscal 2012.  The tax rate in the prior year benefitted from additional federal jobs tax credits and a favorable state tax settlement.  The impact of the tax rate change was $1.4 million, or approximately $0.05 per diluted share.

The Company's diluted weighted-average shares outstanding were 28.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 30.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company repurchased 713,094 shares for $28.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  The impact of share repurchases during the past year was approximately $0.04 per share.

As a result of the items noted above, the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures excluding those items.  These financial measures are used by management to monitor and evaluate the ongoing performance of the Company.  The Company believes that the additional measures are useful to investors for financial analysis.  However, non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures.  Please see the table in this release for a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP results.  Results in the following discussion are presented on a non-GAAP basis excluding the items noted above.

First-quarter fiscal 2013 consolidated income statement summary
Below is a summary of the Company's consolidated first-quarter fiscal 2013 income statement.

  • Net sales – Consolidated net sales were $409.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, a 1.1 percent increase, compared to $405.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. This increase was the result of net sales increases at BEF Foods, as well as same-store sales increases and new restaurant openings at Bob Evans Restaurants, partially offset by same-store sales declines at Mimi's Cafe, and closed restaurant days at Bob Evans Restaurants due to temporary closures for the Farm-Fresh Refresh remodeling program.
  • Operating income – Consolidated non-GAAP operating income was $27.4 million, or 6.7 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to $27.5 million, or 6.8 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in both dollars and rate was driven primarily by incremental investments of $1.8 million in Bob Evans Restaurants' marketing programs and $0.7 million in new restaurant development and Farm-Fresh Refresh costs, which were not completely offset by the 64.5 percent increase in BEF Foods' operating income.

First-quarter fiscal 2013 Bob Evans Restaurants segment summary
Bob Evans Restaurants' fiscal 2013 first-quarter non-GAAP operating income was $18.9 million, or 7.6 percent of net sales, compared with $22.9 million, or 9.4 percent of net sales, last year.  The positive effect of increased sales was more than offset by increased investments in marketing and new restaurant opening expenses.

Net sales – Bob Evans Restaurants' net sales increased 1.7 percent to $248.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with net sales of $243.8 million in the corresponding period last year.  Same-store sales increased 1.0 percent.  The adverse effect of increased closed restaurant days relative to last year for the Farm-Fresh Refresh remodeling program on same-store sales was approximately 0.5 percent, or $1.2 million. The first-quarter same-store sales increase of 1.0 percent exceeded the Midscale Family Style segment, according to The NPD Group's SalesTrack Weekly.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, Bob Evans Restaurants:

  • Refreshed 36 restaurants.
  • Opened two restaurants.
  • Closed two restaurants.

Cost of sales – Bob Evans Restaurants' cost of sales was 24.0 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 23.7 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in cost of sales as a percent of net sales was due to unfavorable menu mix and commodity cost increases.

Operating wages – Bob Evans Restaurants' cost of labor was 37.7 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 38.2 percent of net sales in fiscal 2012. The decline in operating wages as a percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was due to sales leverage from improvement in same-store sales of 1.0 percent, and continued refinements to the Company's labor scheduling practices.

Other operating expenses – Bob Evans Restaurants' other operating expenses were $45.7 million, or 18.4 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to $42.2 million, or 17.3 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase resulted primarily from $1.8 million of increased marketing and $0.7 million of increased pre-opening expenses from new restaurant development and the Farm-Fresh Refresh program.  The remaining increases resulted from restaurant supplies, service contracts, electricity, and repair and maintenance costs increasing relative to the prior year, due in part to the effect of the summer drought and costs associated with the severe weather during the month of July.

SG&A – Bob Evans Restaurants' non-GAAP SG&A expenses were $17.5 million, or 7.1 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with $15.3 million, or 6.3 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Increases in contract labor, long-term incentives, 401k expenses, and allocations, along with increases in wages due to filling positions that were open in the prior year, drove the $2.2 million increase in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  Additionally, in fiscal 2012, approximately $0.5 million of credits were recorded for employee benefits and FICA tax refunds that were not repeated in fiscal 2013. 

First-quarter fiscal 2013 Mimi's Cafe segment summary
Mimi's Cafe's first-quarter fiscal 2013 operating loss was $0.8 million, compared with $1.1 million in fiscal 2012.  The primary driver of the operating loss was the decline in same-store sales of 3.3 percent during the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  Partially offsetting the effect of the same-store sales decline was the improvement in SG&A expenses resulting from Mimi's Cafe's ongoing cost reduction initiatives.

Net sales – Mimi's Cafe's net sales were $86.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to $89.4 million in the corresponding period last year. The decrease resulted from declines in same-store sales of 3.3 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.  At Mimi's Cafe, the same-store sales decline of 3.3 percent trailed the Knapp Track™ casual dining index of 0.2 percent for the same period.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, Mimi's Cafe did not open, remodel, or rebuild any restaurants.

Cost of sales – Mimi's Cafe's cost of sales was 26.7 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 26.8 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease in cost of sales as a percent of net sales was due to ongoing efficiency initiatives including the actual-versus-theoretical food cost program and favorable sales mix, which were partially offset by commodity increases.

Operating wages – Mimi's Cafe's cost of labor was 37.2 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 37.0 percent in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase in operating wages as a percent of sales was due to deleverage from declines in same-store sales. 

Other operating expenses – Mimi's Cafe's other operating expenses were 23.0 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 22.9 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Other operating expenses, as a percent of net sales remained relatively flat due to deleverage from same-store sales declines in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

SG&A – Mimi's Cafe's SG&A expenses were 7.4 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 7.9 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The declines were due to Mimi's ongoing cost reduction initiatives and allocations. 

First-quarter fiscal 2013 BEF Foods segment summary
Non-GAAP operating income was $9.3 million, or 12.3 percent of net sales, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to $5.6 million, or 7.8 percent of sales, in the corresponding period last year.  The primary driver of the increase in operating income was a 7.2 percent increase in total pounds sold.

Subsequent to the close of the first quarter, BEF Foods acquired the assets of Lima, Ohio-based Kettle Creations for approximately $50 million in cash.  Kettle Creations has been a supplier of potato and macaroni and cheese products to BEF Foods' side dish business since 2009.  The acquisition is expected to be slightly accretive in fiscal 2013, with increased accretion in the following years.

Net sales – BEF Foods' first-quarter fiscal 2013 net sales were $75.5 million, an increase of 4.5 percent, compared to $72.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Total pounds sold increased 7.2 percent during the quarter, compared to the corresponding period last year.  Promotional discounts and other selling allowances are included as a reduction to net sales. Promotional discounts provided to retailers decreased $0.4 million, due primarily to a sales mix shift toward product lines requiring less discounting. 

Cost of sales – BEF Foods' first-quarter fiscal 2013 cost of sales was 50.7 percent of net sales, compared to 54.4 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The decrease was due to favorable sourcing and product mix shifts related to side dishes and other convenience products which favorably impacted the quarter by approximately $1.0 million, and a decline in sow costs which favorably impacted the quarter by approximately $0.6 million.

Operating wages – BEF Foods' first-quarter fiscal 2013 cost of labor was 9.6 percent of net sales, compared to 10.0 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.  The decrease was due to volume leverage and efficiency improvements, as well as the outsourcing of distribution services to a third party, resulting from the sale of a Company-owned distribution facility during the second quarter of fiscal 2012. This cost has been reclassified to other operating expenses.

Other operating expenses – BEF Foods' non-GAAP other operating expenses were 7.3 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 6.3 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The increase was due to fees associated with the third-party distribution agreement related to the sale of the distribution center during the second quarter of fiscal 2012, partially offset by lean manufacturing productivity initiatives. 

SG&A – BEF Foods' non-GAAP SG&A expenses were 17.0 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared to 18.6 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The improvement in costs resulted primarily from the timing of marketing expenses.

Board of Directors approves 10 percent increase in quarterly dividend rate
The Company's Board of Directors approved a 10 percent increase in the quarterly dividend rate, from 25 cents per share to 27.5 cents per share. The increased dividend is payable on Monday, September 17, 2012, to shareholders of record at the close of business on Tuesday, September 4, 2012.

Davis said, "Improved sales performance at Bob Evans Restaurants and BEF Foods gives us the confidence to raise our dividend rate for the seventh consecutive year.  Our new annual dividend rate of $1.10 per share represents a 129 percent increase from the $0.48 per share rate in fiscal 2006.  Our strong balance sheet enables us to deliver adjusted earnings growth through disciplined capital investments, and it also enables us to continue to return cash to our shareholders.  We are committed to this balanced approach of driving shareholder value through ongoing investments in the business, and return of cash to shareholders."

Fiscal year 2013 and longer-term outlook
The Company raised its fiscal 2013 earnings per share outlook to $2.67 to $2.73, a $0.01 increase over the prior guidance range of $2.66 to $2.72.  The company also reaffirmed its average annual adjusted earnings growth rate of approximately 7 to 10 percent over the next five years.

The Company expects to encounter a volatile cost environment as the effect of the current drought impacts its supplier base.

This outlook relies on a number of important assumptions, including the risk factors discussed in the Company's securities filings. Particular assumptions for the Company's full-year outlook include the following:

Consolidated company highlights

  • Net sales approximately $1.7 billion.
  • Depreciation and amortization – approximately $85 to $95 million.
  • Net interest expense – approximately $9.5 to $10.5 million, up from $9.0 to $10.0 million, to reflect the impact of the Kettle Creations acquisition.
  • Effective tax rate approximately 33.5 to 34.5 percent.
  • Diluted weighted-average share count approximately 28.2, down from 28.5 to 29.0 million, to account for share repurchase activity during the first quarter.
  • Capital expenditures approximately $150 to $160 million, unchanged from the previous estimate.

Bob Evans Restaurants segment 

  • Net sales: Full-year same-store sales increase between 1.0 and 3.0 percent, driven by new value platforms, and increased marketing investment.  The Company plans to build up to 10 new Bob Evans Restaurants. 
  • Cost of sales: Commodity inflation at 2.5 to 3.5 percent, up from 2.0 to 3.0 percent.  We are seeing increased volatility due to drought conditions. Costs are largely fixed through December 2012.
  • Operating margins: 9.2 to 9.7 percent, reflecting potential commodity cost increases, down from previous guidance of 9.5 to 10.0 percent. 

The Company continues to expect pre-opening expenses related to new restaurant openings and Farm-Fresh Refresh remodel activity to increase $2.0 million, to $5.2 million in fiscal 2013, from $3.2 million in fiscal 2012.  The Company recorded $0.7 million of this increase in the first quarter, and expects the majority of the remainder to be recorded in the third and fourth quarters.

Mimi's Cafe segment

  • Net sales:  Full-year same-store sales in the -2.0 percent to 1.0 percent range, supported by $1 million of increased marketing investment. 
  • Cost of sales: Commodity inflation similar to Bob Evans Restaurants.
  • Operating margins: 0.5 to 1.5 percent, unchanged from the previous estimate.

The Company plans to remodel three Mimi's Cafe restaurants at a total cost of approximately $1 million, but does not plan to build new Mimi's Cafe restaurants during fiscal 2013. 

BEF Foods segment

  • Net sales: Overall net sales of $330 million to $350 million, compared with $340 million to $360 million originally.  Sales dollars, not volume, are reduced due to the expectation of lower pricing, resulting from lower sow costs.  As BEF Foods was Kettle Creations' largest customer, the Company does not anticipate significant top line improvement from the acquisition during fiscal 2013.
  • Cost of sales: Based on recent pricing trends, and liquidations in the herd as a result of the drought, average sow costs of approximately $45 to $55 per hundredweight for the full year, down from previous guidance of $60 to $65 per hundredweight.  Sow pricing in the short term is expected to decline, as mentioned above, and then increase rapidly when demand and supply rebalance.
  • Operating margins: 9.0 to 11.0 percent, compared to previous guidance of 7.5 to 8.5 percent as a result of net input cost favorability and the Kettle Creations acquisition.

On May 29, 2012, the Company announced its intention to close two BEF Foods' production plants in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.  The Company anticipates a total annual pretax benefit of approximately $7 to $8 million.  Partial realization of the pretax benefits, amounting to $4 to $5 million, will commence in fiscal 2014, with full realization expected by fiscal 2015.
