Kellogg Company Reports Second-Quarter Earnings Per Share Broadly In-line With Expectations and Provides Revised Guidance

Jul 31, 2014, 08:00 ET from Kellogg Company

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) today announced second-quarter results for earnings per share that were broadly in-line with the company's expectations.  Second-quarter 2014 reported net sales decreased by 0.8 percent to $3.7 billion.  Internal net sales,* which exclude the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs, decreased by 1.5 percent over the same period.  Second-quarter 2014 operating profit was $467 million, a reported decrease of 18.1 percent; this decrease was driven primarily by costs associated with Project K, the company's four-year efficiency and effectiveness program, and lower sales.  Underlying internal operating profit,* which excludes the effects of foreign currency translation, acquisitions, dispositions, mark-to-market accounting, integration costs, and costs associated with Project K, decreased by 7.2 percent.  The decline in underlying internal operating profit was largely the result of lower sales, and investment in brand-building activities.

Reported earnings for the second quarter 2014 were $295 million, or $0.82 per diluted share, a decrease of 15 percent from the $0.96 per diluted share reported in the second quarter of last year.  This quarter's reported earnings per share included an impact from mark-to-market of $0.02 per share, $0.16 per share of costs associated with Project K, and approximately $0.02 per share of integration costs related to the acquisition of Pringles.  Excluding these items, comparable second quarter 2014 earnings* were $1.02 per share, broadly in-line with the company's expectations; this result included a $0.02 benefit from currency-translation.

"We have announced earnings per share for the second quarter that were broadly in-line with our expectations.  While we saw growth in various areas of our business including Pringles and the international segments, the cereal category in developed markets remained challenging," said John Bryant, Kellogg Company's chairman and chief executive officer.  "Our Project K efficiency and effectiveness program continues to go well, and we are in the very early stages of the increased investment we are making in our developed-markets business.  We know that improvement will take some time, but we believe we are making the right decisions to drive profitable revenue growth in the future."

North America Net sales posted by Kellogg North America were $2.4 billion in the second quarter, a reported decrease of 3.7 percent; internal net sales decreased by 3.4 percent.  The U.S. Morning Foods segment posted an internal net sales decline of 4.9 percent.  Internal net sales in the U.S. Snacks segment decreased by 2.7 percent.  The U.S. Specialty Channels segment posted a 1.4 percent internal net sales increase in the quarter and the North America Other segment, which is comprised of the U.S. Frozen Foods and Canadian businesses, posted a 4.9 percent decrease in internal net sales.  Reported operating profit in North America decreased by 11.9 percent; underlying internal operating profit declined by 8.7 percent, largely as the result of lower sales and increased investment in brand building.

International Reported net sales increased by 6.9 percent in Europe in the quarter; internal net sales increased by 0.7 percent.  In Latin America, reported net sales increased by 5.2 percent and internal net sales increased by 6.9 percent, due to strong price realization, innovation, and brand-building activities.  Reported net sales in Asia Pacific decreased by 1.5 percent and internal net sales increased by 0.5 percent.

Interest and Tax Kellogg's interest expense was $50 million in the second quarter.  The underlying tax rate* in the second quarter of 2014 was 28.7 percent.

Cash flow Cash flow,* a non-GAAP measure defined as cash from operating activities less capital expenditures, was $428 million for the first half of the year.  The company anticipates that cash flow for the year will be at the low end of the range between $1 billion and $1.1 billion.

Year-to-date, Kellogg has repurchased $329 million of shares, far exceeding option proceeds of $124 million.

* Internal sales growth, underlying internal operating profit growth, comparable earnings, underlying effective tax rate and cash flow are all non-GAAP financial measures. See the tables herein for important information regarding these measures and a full reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Kellogg Revises Full-Year 2014 Guidance

The company lowered its guidance for the full-year of 2014.  Internal net sales are now expected to decline by between one and two percent.  Underlying internal operating profit growth is expected to decline by between one and three percent.  Currency-neutral comparable earnings per share are expected to be in a range between a decline of one percent and an increase of one percent.  Integration costs associated with the acquisition of the Pringles business are still expected to be in a range between $0.07 and $0.09 per share.  Costs associated with Project K are still expected to be in a range between $0.60 and $0.65 per share.  As a result, earnings excluding the impact of mark-to-market accounting, integration costs, Project K and other items impacting comparability are anticipated to be between $3.81 and $3.89 per share.  This year's 53rd week is now expected to add approximately $0.07 per share to earnings and currency translation is now expected to add $0.03 per share.  As a result, the company expects an earnings range including the impact of the 53rd week and currency translation of between $3.91 and $3.99 per share.

Conference Call / Webcast

Kellogg will host a conference call to discuss these results on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time.  The conference call and accompanying presentation slides will be broadcast live over the Internet at http://investor.kelloggs.com.  Analysts and institutional investors may participate in the Q&A session by dialing (877) 270-2148 in the U.S., and (412) 902-6510 outside of the U.S.  Members of the media and the public are invited to attend in a listen-only mode.  Rebroadcast information is available at http://investor.kelloggs.com.

(a)

Includes impact of integration costs associated with the Pringles acquisition.

(b)

Internal net sales growth for 2014 excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures, integration costs and impact of foreign currency translation.  Internal net sales growth is a non-GAAP financial measure which is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within these tables.

(c)

We measure the volume impact (tonnage) on revenues based on the stated weight of our product shipments.

(d)

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold.  Actuarial gains/losses for pension plans are recognized in the year they occur.  A portion of these mark-to-market adjustments were capitalized as inventoriable cost at the end of 2013 and 2012.  These amounts have been recognized in the first quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  During the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, there were no pension mark-to-market adjustments recognized.  Mark-to-market adjustments for commodities reflect the changes in the fair value of contracts for the difference between contract and market prices for the underlying commodities.  The resulting gains/losses are recognized in the quarter they occur.

(e)

Costs incurred related primarily to the execution of Project K, a global four-year efficiency and effectiveness program. The focus of the program will be to strengthen existing businesses in core markets, increase growth in developing and emerging markets, and drive an increased level of value-added innovation.  The program is expected to provide a number of benefits, including an optimized supply chain infrastructure, the implementation of global business services, and a new global focus on categories.  The 2013 periods presented have been recast to exclude all restructuring and cost reduction activities from underlying and comparable results.  Previously, only costs associated with Project K were excluded from underlying and comparable results.

(f)

Underlying internal operating profit growth excludes the impact of foreign currency translation, pension plans and commodity contracts mark-to-market adjustments, costs related to restructuring and cost reduction activities, and if applicable, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs associated with the acquisition of Pringles.  The Company believes the use of this non-GAAP measure provides increased transparency and assists in understanding underlying operating performance.  This non-GAAP measure is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.

(a)

Includes impact of integration costs associated with the Pringles acquisition.

(b)

Internal net sales growth for 2014 excludes the impact of acquisitions, divestitures, integration costs and impact of foreign currency translation.  Internal net sales growth is a non-GAAP financial measure which is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within these tables.

(c)

We measure the volume impact (tonnage) on revenues based on the stated weight of our product shipments.

(d)

Includes mark-to-market adjustments for pension plans and commodity contracts as reflected in cost of goods sold.  Actuarial gains/losses for pension plans are recognized in the year they occur.  A portion of these mark-to-market adjustments were capitalized as inventoriable cost at the end of 2013 and 2012.  These amounts have been recognized in the first quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.  During the second quarter of 2014 and 2013, there were no pension mark-to-market adjustments recognized.  Mark-to-market adjustments for commodities reflect the changes in the fair value of contracts for the difference between contract and market prices for the underlying commodities.  The resulting gains/losses are recognized in the quarter they occur.

(e)

Costs incurred related primarily to the execution of Project K, a global four-year efficiency and effectiveness program. The focus of the program will be to strengthen existing businesses in core markets, increase growth in developing and emerging markets, and drive an increased level of value-added innovation.  The program is expected to provide a number of benefits, including an optimized supply chain infrastructure, the implementation of global business services, and a new global focus on categories.  The 2013 periods presented have been recast to exclude all restructuring and cost reduction activities from underlying and comparable results.  Previously, only costs associated with Project K were excluded from underlying and comparable results.

(f)

Underlying internal operating profit growth excludes the impact of foreign currency translation, pension plans and commodity contracts mark-to-market adjustments, costs related to restructuring and cost reduction activities, and if applicable, acquisitions, dispositions, and integration costs associated with the acquisition of Pringles.  The Company believes the use of this non-GAAP measure provides increased transparency and assists in understanding underlying operating performance.  This non-GAAP measure is reconciled to the directly comparable measure in accordance with U.S. GAAP within this table.
