CELAYA, Mexico, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Industrias Bachoco S.A.B. de C.V. ("Bachoco" or "the Company") (NYSE: IBA; BMV: Bachoco), Mexico's leading producer and processor of poultry products, announced today its unaudited results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31st, 2009. All figures have been prepared in accordance with Mexican GAAP. In line with the Mexican Accounting Principles, data is presented in nominal Mexican pesos.
Highlights: -- Total sales for the fourth quarter rose 2.2% and 15.7% during 2009 -- The Company continued to record historic chicken volume sales -- EBITDA margin was 3.5% for 4Q09 and 8.9% in 2009, up from 4.2% in 2008.
-- Earnings per ADS in 2009 reached $1.23 USD compared to a net loss of $0.84 USD in 2008. Loss per ADS in 4Q09 at $0.17 USD was better than the loss recorded in the same year-ago period.
-- In the fourth quarter, the Company recorded a one-time charge related to deferred taxes following the changes in the Mexican income tax rate
Cristobal Mondragon, Bachoco's CEO, stated, "During the fourth quarter, we observed lower raw materials prices, which coupled with our efficiency strategy, allowed us to improve the cost of sales.
"The chicken industry was also stable during the quarter; there was a good level in the supply and demand balance, especially around the holiday season. However, prices remained under pressure, and were mainly attributed to a weaker purchasing power of the Mexican population as the economy slowed down. We expect prices to improve as the Mexican economy shows signs of recovery.
"Our egg business line was strong during the year given that eggs are the lowest-cost animal protein in Mexico. Also, our balanced feed business line results improved during the year, even when the sales volume continued to be affected.
"At the year end, the balance was positive, reaching significant improvements from last year: we recorded the highest chicken volume sales, and positive operating and net margins, while we increased our chicken market share as a result of our latest business acquisition. Our leadership in Mexico remains solid as well as our financial position," concluded Mr. Mondragon.
FOURTH QUARTER 2009 RESULTS Net sales 4Q09 (%) 4Q08 (%) Chicken 77.2 77.7 Eggs 10.4 10.0 Balanced feed 6.1 6.4 Swine 1.1 1.1 Other lines 5.2 4.8 Total Sales 100.00% 100.00%
Net sales for the fourth quarter amounted to Ps. 5,800.3 million, 2.2% above the Ps. 5,674.3 million reported in 4Q08. This increase was mainly driven by a 1.6% increase in chicken sales, a 6.3% increase in table eggs sales, and a 2.8% increase in swine sales; which were partially offset by a 2.3% decrease in balanced feed sales.
Bachoco's fourth quarter gross margin was 12.2%, above the 9.8% registered in the same 2008 quarter. The increase in the gross margin is attributed to the 5.5% increase in sales volume, which was partially offset by a 3.2% decrease in the sale prices.
The Company had an operating profit of Ps. 38.0 million, compared to an operating loss of Ps. 79.1 million in the same 2008 quarter. The operating margin for 4Q09 was 0.7%.
EBITDA amounted to Ps. 205.3 million, compared with Ps. 76.8 million reported in the same 2008 quarter.
Total taxes for the fourth quarter were Ps. 188.2 million. This amount includes a one-time charge of Ps 188.4 million related to deferred taxes, which resulted from the change in the rate of income tax for the agricultural sector in Mexico that took effect as of January 1st, 2010. This effect does not affect the Company's cash flow.
Comprehensive Financial Income (Cost)
The Company's financial comprehensive cost was Ps. 0.3 million during the quarter, compared to a financial comprehensive cost of Ps. 1,056.0 million reported in the same last year-ago quarter.
Net Majority Income (loss)
Net majority loss for the fourth quarter was PS. 109.5 million, or Ps. 0.18 per share (US$0.17 per ADS), compared to a net majority loss of Ps. 873.5 million, or Ps. 1.46 per share (US$1.34 per ADS) reported in the same 2008 period.
RESULTS BY BUSINESS SEGMENT
Sales of chicken products increased 1.6%, while chicken prices decreased 6.2% during the quarter and chicken volume grew 8.4%. Even when the sales and sales volume increased during the quarter, chicken prices remained affected, and declined significantly from 4Q08, mainly due to the weaker purchasing power of Mexican consumers.
Demand for table egg products remained strong during the fourth quarter. Sales of table eggs increased by 6.3% during the quarter as egg volume rose 6.4% from the previous year; this result was partially offset by a slight decrease in egg prices of 0.1%.
Sales of balanced feed decreased by 2.3%, mainly due to a 0.3% increase in prices and 2.0% decrease in balanced feed volume. This business line remained affected by higher costs and decreased demand.
The swine business line was stable during the 4Q09. Sales rose 2.8% during the fourth quarter, as a result of a 2.4% gain in swine prices and a 0.4% increase in swine volumes when compared to the same 2008 quarter.
Sales of other lines increased 9.5% when compared with 4Q08. The main products sold were turkey and by-products.
YEAR 2009 Net sales 2009 (%) 2008 (%) Chicken 78.3 76.9 Eggs 10.1 10.6 Balanced feed 6.3 7.3 Swine 1.0 1.0 Other lines 4.3 4.2 Total Sales 100.00% 100.00%
Net sales for the year 2009 amounted to Ps. 23,271.8 million, 15.7% above the Ps. 20,109.6 million reported in 2008. The increase was mainly driven by the 17.8% increase in chicken sales, 11.8% in table eggs sales and 11.7% in swine sales; which were partially offset by a slight decrease in balanced feed sales of 0.4%.
The Company's gross margin for 2009 was 16.9%, higher than the 13.1% recorded in 2008, and was attributed to higher sales in most of our business lines, mainly in chicken and table eggs products. The Company's operating profit, of Ps. 1,426.7 million, compares favorably to an operating profit of Ps. 233.2 million recorded in 2008. EBITDA, of Ps. 2,079.5 million, was well above the Ps. 837.8 million recorded in 2008. EBITDA margin for year 2009 was 8.9%.
Taxes Total taxes registered for the year amounted to Ps. 412.2 million.
Net Majority Income
Net majority income for the year was Ps. 807.0 million, or Ps. 1.35 per share (US$1.23 per ADS), compared to net loss of Ps. 548.5 million, or Ps. 0.91 per share (US$0.84 per ADS) reported in 2008.
