  • Fourth quarter net sales decreased 1 percent in 2013, compared to 2012, reflecting price declines taken earlier in fiscal 2013.  Overall volume increased 2 percent for the same period driven by increases of 6 and 4 percent in the U.S. Retail Coffee and U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segments, respectively.
  • Operating income excluding the impact of restructuring, merger and integration, and certain pension settlement costs ("special project costs") increased 5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, as the Company benefited from strong results in its U.S. Retail Coffee segment.
  • Net income excluding special project costs increased 13 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, reflecting the increase in operating income as well as a lower effective tax rate.
  • Fourth quarter net income per diluted share, excluding special project costs, increased 17 percent in 2013, compared to 2012, which includes the benefit from the Company's share repurchase activities over the past year.

"Our momentum continued through a strong fourth quarter, as we achieved record sales, earnings, and operating cash flow for the full fiscal year," commented Richard Smucker, Chief Executive Officer.  "The record results we reported were achieved while also making significant investments toward our future growth and creating value for shareholders.  In 2013, we increased the annual dividend paid per share by nine percent, while also repurchasing nearly four percent of our shares.  Our long-term focus, strong consumer-relevant brands, robust innovation, and dedicated employees are keys to this success." 

"Our fourth quarter results reflect the sustained momentum realized across our business, particularly in key categories such as coffee, peanut butter, and fruit spreads," added Vince Byrd, President and Chief Operating Officer.  "Combining strong brand building, innovation, and productivity initiatives with an ability to quickly adapt to market conditions has created a platform for growth. We are well positioned to continue our history of delivering shareholder value."

Overall volume, based on weight, increased 2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.  Volume gains realized in Jif® peanut butter, Folgers® coffee, and Pillsbury® frostings more than offset decreases in the Company's flour brands, the Sara Lee foodservice business, and Crisco® shortening.  Sales mix was favorable in the quarter reflecting the volume gains in the U.S. Retail Coffee segment. 

Net sales decreased 1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, primarily due to a 5 percent decrease in net price realization reflecting price declines taken earlier in fiscal 2013, notably on coffee and peanut butter.

Gross profit increased $29.9 million, or 7 percent, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, due to favorable mix, lower manufacturing overhead driven by decreased costs and higher production volume, and an increase in sales volume.  Excluding special project costs, gross profit increased $26.9 million, or 6 percent, and improved to 36.1 percent of net sales in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 33.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Overall commodity costs were lower during the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, due primarily to green coffee.  Price declines taken over the past year resulted in overall lower net price realization, and more than offset the impact of lower commodity costs.  Unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts were a loss of $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $4.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. 

Total selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses increased 9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, and increased as a percentage of net sales from 15.8 percent to 17.4 percent.  An increase in brand building investments during the fourth quarter, primarily in support of the Company's coffee brands, led to a 17 percent increase in marketing expenses, compared to 2012.  General and administrative expenses increased 12 percent, over the same period, including an increase in incentive compensation costs.  Distribution expenses increased 2 percent and selling expenses decreased 2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012.

Operating income increased $28.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, as a decrease in special project costs mostly offset the increase in SD&A expenses.  Special project costs were $16.9 million lower in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, reflecting substantial progress made on the related projects, with the majority of costs having been incurred in past years.  Excluding special project costs in both periods, operating income increased $11.5 million, or 5 percent, and improved from 15.8 percent of net sales in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 16.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013. 

Income Taxes
Income taxes increased $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, reflecting an increase in income before income taxes mostly offset by a decrease in the effective tax rate from 36.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, to 32.1 percent in 2013.  The effective tax rate decrease was primarily the result of lower state income taxes.

U.S. Retail Coffee
The U.S. Retail Coffee segment volume increased 6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, led by increases of 4 percent in the Folgers® brand and 29 percent in Dunkin' Donuts® packaged coffee.  Segment net sales decreased 1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, as net price realization was lower primarily due to price declines taken over the past year.  Since the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company has taken two price declines of approximately 6 percent each, effective May 2012 and February 2013.  The impact of sales mix was favorable, driven by K-Cups® and the Dunkin' Donuts® brand.  Net sales of K-Cups® increased $10.6 million, or 18 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, and contributed 2 percentage points of growth to segment net sales, while contributing nominally to volume growth.

The U.S. Retail Coffee segment profit increased $22.7 million, or 18 percent, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.  Green coffee costs were significantly lower in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, and were partially offset by lower price realization.  The net benefit of lower commodity cost and price, increased sales volume, and lower manufacturing overhead contributed relatively equally to increased segment profit for the quarter, and more than offset an increase in marketing expenses.  While segment profit growth fluctuated on a quarterly basis during the fiscal year due to the timing of pricing actions and recognized costs, the net impact of lower commodity costs and price did not contribute significantly to the increase in segment profit for the full year.  Unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts, which represented a loss of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, contributed $2.8 million to segment profit growth for the quarter. 

U.S. Retail Consumer Foods
The U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segment net sales increased 5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, as a 4 percent increase in segment volume and favorable sales mix offset overall lower net price realization.  Jif® brand net sales decreased 1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, due to lower net price realization including the impact of a price decline taken in the third quarter of 2013.  Jif® brand volume increased 17 percent over the same period, as the prior year volume was challenged due to a 30 percent price increase earlier in fiscal 2012.  Smucker's® fruit spreads net sales and volume increased 3 percent and 6 percent, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012.  Smucker's® Uncrustables® frozen sandwiches experienced another strong quarter as net sales and volume increased 20 percent and 22 percent, respectively, during the same period, benefiting from new distribution.

Crisco® brand net sales and volume decreased 4 percent and 3 percent, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012.  Volume for the Pillsbury® brand increased 5 percent, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, despite the tonnage impact of the previously disclosed cake mix downsizing, and was driven by frostings and baking mixes.  Pillsbury® brand net sales increased 39 percent, benefiting from improved net price realization for baking mixes resulting from the cake mix downsizing and a change in promotional strategy.  Canned milk net sales and volume increased 9 percent and 4 percent, respectively, during the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012. 

The U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segment profit decreased 2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012.  Generally higher costs offset marginally lower peanut costs in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, resulting in overall higher raw material costs.  The Company decreased peanut butter prices by approximately 10 percent late in its fiscal third quarter in anticipation of further reductions in peanut costs later in fiscal 2014.  As a result, peanut butter price realization was significantly lower and drove the decrease in segment profit.  Segment profit was positively impacted by mix and volume, while marketing expenses decreased in fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012.  Unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts were a loss of $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $0.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Last year's segment profit included a $4.6 million noncash impairment charge.

International, Foodservice, and Natural Foods
Net sales in the International, Foodservice, and Natural Foods segment decreased 9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, primarily driven by volume and lower net price realization.  Segment volume decreased 4 percent primarily due to declines in the Sara Lee foodservice business, attributed in part to commencement of the Company's previously announced exits of nonbranded foodservice roast and ground coffee, and exiting a portion of the school Smucker's® Uncrustables® frozen sandwich business.  Decreases in certain Canadian flour brands also contributed to the volume decline.

Segment profit decreased $2.6 million, or 5 percent, in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to 2012, due primarily to lower volume and an increase in marketing expense.  Overall raw material costs were lower and were partially offset by lower net price realization in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, and mix was favorable.  There was essentially no impact of unrealized mark-to-market adjustments on derivative contracts in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to a loss of $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

During the fourth quarter, the Company entered into a multi-year licensing and distribution agreement with Cumberland Packing Corp. ("Cumberland") whereby, beginning in July 2013, the Company will market and distribute Cumberland's branded tabletop sweeteners ("Cumberland products") to foodservice customers in the U.S. and to retail and foodservice customers in Canada.  The Cumberland products include the Sweet'N Low®, NatraTaste®, Sugar In The Raw®, and Cumberland's other "In The Raw" brands.  On a full-year basis, net sales of the Cumberland products are expected to approximate $40 million.

Cash provided by operating activities increased $124.9 million during 2013, primarily due to higher net income and less cash required to fund working capital, notably inventory, compared to 2012.  Capital expenditures decreased $67.7 million during 2013, compared to 2012, primarily due to the decrease in restructuring related projects, and combined with the increase in cash provided by operating activities resulted in a $192.7 million increase in free cash flow for the year.

Outlook
For fiscal 2014, the Company expects net sales to be comparable to 2013 reflecting the full-year impact of price declines taken in 2013 and rationalization of previously discussed products, offset by net sales of Cumberland products and expected volume growth in key categories.  Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is expected in the range of $5.65 to $5.75, which excludes special project costs of approximately $0.20 per diluted share.  The Company expects free cash flow of approximately $600.0 million in fiscal 2014, reflecting capital expenditures of approximately $270.0 million.

Conference Call
The Company will conduct an earnings conference call and webcast today, Thursday, June 6, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. E.T.  The webcast can be accessed from the Company's website at www.smuckers.com/investors.  For those unable to listen to the live webcast, the webcast replay will be available at www.smuckers.com/investors following the call.  An audio replay will also be available following the call until Thursday, June 13, 2013, and can be accessed by dialing 888-203-1112 or 719-457-0820, with an access code of 2721955.

Non-GAAP Measures
The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures including: net sales adjusted for the noncomparable impact of acquisition, divestiture, and foreign exchange; gross profit, operating income, net income, and net income per diluted share, excluding special project costs; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA"); and free cash flow as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally.  The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors because they are the measures used to evaluate performance on a comparable year-over-year basis.  The special project costs relate to specific restructuring, merger and integration, and pension settlement projects that are each nonrecurring in nature and can significantly affect the year-over-year assessment of operating results.  These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses, and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments.  A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the current and prior year quarter and year-to-date periods is included in the "Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables.

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures including: net sales adjusted for the noncomparable impact of acquisition, divestiture, and foreign exchange; gross profit, operating income, net income, and net income per diluted share, excluding special project costs; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("EBITDA"); and free cash flow as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally.  The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors because they are the measures used to evaluate performance on a comparable year-over-year basis.  The special project costs relate to specific restructuring, merger and integration, and pension settlement projects that are each nonrecurring in nature and can significantly affect the year-over-year assessment of operating results.  These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses, and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments.
