Industrias Bachoco Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

CELAYA, Mexico, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrias Bachoco S.A.B. de C.V. ("Bachoco" or "the Company") (NYSE: IBA; BMV: Bachoco) announced today its unaudited results for the second quarter of 2012 ("2Q12"). All figures have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standard ("IFRS"), and are presented in nominal million Mexican pesos.

HIGHLIGHTS (2Q12 vs. 2Q11)

  • Net sales increased 42.1%
  • EBITDA margin reached 7.0%
  • Earnings per share totaled Ps. 0.53 (Ps. 6.36 pesos per ADS), compared to Ps. 0.23 (Ps. 2.80 pesos per ADS) in 2Q11

COMMENT FROM THE CEO

"For the second quarter, Bachoco's poultry and balanced feed business lines demonstrated a proper balance between supply and demand. On the contrary, the egg business line experienced oversupply conditions and high production costs which narrowed margins in this business line when compared to the same period in 2011. Bachoco incorporated into the category of "other business lines" sales of live swine which were also affected by oversupply conditions in the second quarter of 2012.

Generally speaking, we can conclude that Bachoco obtained favorable operating results year over year (2Q12 vs 2Q11), however, when compared to 1Q12, results were lower. 

Our second quarter results were largely attributed to a reduction in operating expenses as a percentage of net sales as well as operating efficiencies in all of the Company's business processes. Our performance was affected by volatility stemming from increases in the price of soybean meal, one of Bachoco's key production cost components, as well as by the volatility of the Mexican peso versus the U.S. dollar.

The Company's financial position remains solid and in line with the strategic plan laid out for 2012."

The Company's 2Q12 net sales totaled Ps. 9,404.0 million, 42.1% higher than the Ps. 6,616.8 million reported in 2Q11. This resulted from increased sales throughout all business lines: 

  • In particular, an increase in chicken sales of 48.3% in 2012 vs. 2011, due to the integration of the subsidiary "OK Foods" (production facility in the US), which was consolidated into Bachoco in November of 2011.
  • Table egg sales were up 12.7% in 2Q12 vs. 2Q11, as a result of a 10.6% increase in prices (prices were down 13.0% when compared to 1Q12) and a 1.9% rise in volume sold.
  • Bachoco's balanced feed business line rose 5.1%, as a result of a 14.5% price increase, partially offset by an 8.2% decline in sales volume as a result of more supply and higher commodity prices.
  • The line item "other business lines", which includes swine, turkey and beef value-added products, as well as by-products, grew 37.7%. This increase was mainly due to the growth in value-added beef products, resulting from the integration of the newly acquired plant located in Monterrey during the second half of 2011, as well as higher by-product sales.

Production costs per unit increased around 18% during 2Q12 vs. 2Q11, as a result of higher input costs, primarily in corn, soybean meal, as well as the volatility of the exchange rate in the Mexican peso.

Gross profit for 2Q12 was Ps. 1,276.8 million resulting in a gross margin of 13.6%, compared to a gross profit of Ps. 867.0 million with a margin of 13.1% registered in 2Q11. Meanwhile, the gross margin was 15.3% in the first half of 2012, compared to 13.7% in the first half of 2011.

EBITDA for 2Q12 reached Ps. 663.0 million with a margin of 7.0%, compared to an EBITDA of Ps. 328.5 million with a margin of 5.0% reported in 2Q11.

EBITDA margin for the first half of 2012 was 9.1%, compared to 5.5% reported in 1H11.

The comprehensive financial result was and income of Ps. 21.8 million in 2Q12, and Ps. 93.1 million in the first half of 2012. This was mainly due to interest earned on the Company's cash.

Total taxes for the 2Q12 reached Ps. 85.2 million.

Net majority income was Ps. 316.8 million in 2Q12 (Ps. 0.53 pesos per share), compared to a net majority income of Ps. 140.0 (Ps. 0.23 pesos per share) reported in 2Q11.

Meanwhile net majority income for the first half of 2012 was Ps. 977.4 million (Ps. 1.63 pesos per share), compared to a net majority income of Ps. 295.5 million (Ps. 0.49 pesos per share) reported in the same period of 2011.

BALANCE SHEET

The Company's financial structure remained solid; cash and equivalents as of June 30, 2012, totaled Ps. 3,804.4 million, compared to Ps. 3,036.4.7 million reported as of December 31, 2011.
