GOLDEN, Colo. & MONTRÉAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2022-- Molson Coors Beverage Company ("MCBC") (NYSE: TAP, TAP.A; TSX: TPX.A, TPX.B) today reported results for the 2022 second quarter.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20220802005120/en/

2022 SECOND QUARTER FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net sales decreased 0.6% reported and increased 2.2% in constant currency, as the impact of positive net pricing and favorable sales mix more than offset lower financial volumes.
  • Net sales per hectoliter on a brand volume basis in constant currency increased 7.1%, primarily due to positive net pricing and favorable brand and channel mix resulting from portfolio premiumization and fewer on-premise channel restrictions.
  • U.S. GAAP income before income taxes of $54.9 million declined 89.5% reported and 88.9% in constant currency.
  • Underlying (Non-GAAP) income before income taxes of $328.1 million declined 24.3% reported and 22.8% in constant currency.
  • U.S. GAAP net income attributable to MCBC of $47.3 million, $0.22 per share on a diluted basis. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $1.19 decreased $0.39 per share.

CEO AND CFO PERSPECTIVES

Molson Coors again delivered against its revitalization plan on a global basis in the second quarter of 2022. The Company grew dollar share in the U.S. in the 13-week quarter, for the first time in over a decade. In the second quarter, Coors Light, Miller Lite and Coors Banquet combined to grow total industry share in the U.S. driven by distinctive brand positionings and more effective marketing. In each of our major markets, Molson Coors has core brands gaining share of the beer industry. In Canada, Molson Canadian grew share of the total beer industry for the first time in eight years. In the U.K., Carling, the largest beer brand in the U.K., managed to further solidify its number one position in the total market and national champion brands in Central and Eastern Europe grew share in the majority of markets.

Molson Coors is changing the shape of its product portfolio, increasing its concentration in growth areas while continuing to offer strong core brands in all segments of the market. Net sales of the Company’s U.S. above premium portfolio is now higher than that of its U.S. economy portfolio. That trend has been driven by the rapid growth of its hard seltzers, the strong launch of Simply Spiked Lemonade, and Blue Moon and Peroni’s continued rise coming out of the pandemic. The Company also maintained the strength of its economy portfolio, which has benefited from improved focus and efficiency following the SKU de-prioritization which started in the second quarter last year.

Gavin Hattersley, President and Chief Executive Officer Statement:

“After growing the top-line for the first time in a decade last year, we have now generated net sales growth for five straight quarters for the first time in over a decade on a constant currency basis. On an aggregate basis, we outpaced the industry in our three largest markets and continued to grow the top line globally in the quarter. We believe we have the portfolio to compete and win across all segments and a strong backstop in challenging economic times. This is our Revitalization Plan at work, and I am incredibly proud of our teams around the world who are working to deliver these results.”

Tracey Joubert, Chief Financial Officer Statement:

“We delivered another quarter of top-line growth on a constant currency basis and achieved income before income tax at the favorable end of our anticipated range, all while continuing to invest in our business, reduce net debt and return cash to shareholders. We also did this while navigating global inflationary pressures, a strike at our Montreal/Longueuil, Québec brewery and distribution centers and the cycling of a strong shipment quarter in the prior year period. Our performance and agility demonstrate our successes against our Revitalization Plan and provide us the confidence to reaffirm our guidance for mid-single digit top-line and high single digit bottom-line growth for the year.”

QUARTERLY CONSOLIDATED HIGHLIGHTS (VERSUS SECOND QUARTER 2021 RESULTS)

  • Net sales: decreased 0.6% on a reported basis, and increased 2.2% in constant currency primarily due to positive net pricing and favorable brand and channel mix resulting from portfolio premiumization and fewer on-premise channel restrictions, partially offset by lower financial volumes. Financial volumes decreased 4.6%, primarily due to the cycling of U.S. distributor inventory recovery in the prior year as a result of the cybersecurity incident and Texas storm in the first quarter of 2021 and lower shipments in Canada this quarter, partially offset by higher EMEA&APAC financial volumes driven by higher brand volumes in Western Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Europe, along with higher factored volumes. Lower shipments in Canada this quarter was a result of the Montreal/Longueuil, Québec brewery and distribution centers labor strike which began at the end of March 2022 and ended in mid-June 2022. Brand volumes decreased 1.8% primarily due to a 2.2% decline in the Americas as a result of softer industry performance and the impacts of the Québec labor strike and a 0.7% decline in EMEA&APAC due to markets impacted by the Russia-Ukraine conflict, largely offset by growth in Western Europe as well as Central and Eastern Europe.

    Net sales per hectoliter on a brand volume basis in constant currency increased 7.1%, primarily due to positive net pricing and favorable brand and channel mix resulting from portfolio premiumization and fewer on-premise channel restrictions.
  • Cost of goods sold (COGS) per hectoliter: increased 32.0%on a reported basis primarily due to a $374.7 million increase as a result of changes in our unrealized mark-to-market commodity positions, cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs, volume deleverage and mix impacts from both portfolio premiumization and higher factored volumes, partially offset by the favorable impact of foreign currencies and lower depreciation expense. Underlying COGS per hectoliter: increased 11.5% in constant currency, primarily due to cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs, volume deleverage and mix impacts from both portfolio premiumization and higher factored volumes, partially offset by lower depreciation expense.
  • Marketing, general & administrative (MG&A): increased 3.8%on a reported basis, primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses driven by the cycling of lower people related costs in the prior year, including travel and entertainment, and higher marketing investment to support our core brands, new innovations and increased local sponsorship and events, partially offset by the favorable impact of foreign currencies. Underlying MG&A: increased 7.5% in constant currency.
  • U.S. GAAP income (loss) before income taxes: declined 89.5% on a reported basis primarily due to changes in our unrealized mark-to-market commodity positions, lower financial volumes, cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs, higher MG&A spend and the unfavorable impact of foreign currencies partially offset by positive net pricing, lower depreciation expense and favorable sales mix.
  • Underlying income (loss) before income taxes: declined 22.8% in constant currency primarily due to lower financial volumes, cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs and higher MG&A spend, partially offset by positive net pricing, lower depreciation expense and favorable sales mix.

QUARTERLY SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS (VERSUS SECOND QUARTER 2021 RESULTS)

Americas Segment

  • Net sales: decreased 2.3% on a reported basis and 1.7% in constant currency primarily due to an 8.1% decrease in financial volumes, partially offset by positive net pricing and favorable sales mix. Financial volumes decreased primarily due to an 8.2% decline in U.S. domestic shipments attributed to the cycling of the U.S. distributor inventory recovery in the prior year as a result of the first quarter of 2021 cybersecurity incident and Texas storm, as well as lower shipments in Canada this quarter attributed to the Québec labor strike more than offsetting growth in certain other provinces. Americas brand volumes decreased 2.2% primarily due to a 1.7% decline in the U.S. as a result of softer industry performance and an 8.0% decline in Canada due to the impacts of the Québec labor strike more than offsetting growth in certain other provinces, partially offset by growth in the above premium portfolio driven by hard seltzers and the launch of Simply Spiked Lemonade and 1.8% growth in Latin America.

    Net sales per hectoliter on a brand volume basis in constant currency increased 6.2% for the Americas segment primarily due to positive net pricing and favorable brand mix.
  • U.S. GAAP income (loss) before income taxes: declined 18.7% on a reported basis primarily due to lower financial volumes, cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs and higher MG&A spend, partially offset by positive net pricing, lower depreciation expense and favorable sales mix. Higher MG&A spend was primarily due to higher general and administrative expenses driven by the cycling of lower people related costs in the prior year, including travel and entertainment and higher marketing investment in Coors Light, Miller Lite and Topo Chico Hard Seltzer.
  • Underlying income (loss) before income taxes: declined 20.0% in constant currency primarily due to lower financial volumes, cost inflation and higher MG&A spend, partially offset by positive net pricing, lower depreciation expense and favorable sales mix.

EMEA&APAC Segment

  • Net sales: increased 7.2% on a reported basis and 20.5% in constant currency, primarily due to higher financial volumes, favorable sales mix and positive net pricing. Financial volumes growth of 6.2% was primarily due to higher brand volumes in Western Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Europe, driven by growth in our above premium portfolio including the cycling of significant on-premise closures and restrictions that occurred during the second quarter of 2021, particularly in the U.K., and higher factored volumes. Brand volumes decreased 0.7% primarily due to volume declines as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, partially offset by higher brand volumes in Western Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Europe.

    Net sales per hectoliter on a brand volume basis in constant currency increased 15.5% primarily due to favorable sales mix and positive net pricing.
  • U.S. GAAP income (loss) before income taxes: declined 27.4% on a reported basis, primarily due to cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs, higher MG&A spend and unfavorable foreign currency movements, partially offset by higher financial volumes, favorable mix and positive net pricing. Higher MG&A spend was primarily due to the cycling of lower spend in the prior year due to cost mitigation efforts and increased marketing spend as we accelerate investment behind our brands and as on-premise channel and events return.
  • Underlying income (loss) before income taxes: declined 22.7% in constant currency, primarily due to cost inflation mainly on materials, transportation and energy costs and higher MG&A spend, partially offset by higher financial volumes, favorable mix and positive net pricing.

CASH FLOW AND LIQUIDITY HIGHLIGHTS

  • U.S. GAAP cash from operations: net cash provided by operating activitieswas $666.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $748.5 million in the prior year. The decrease in cash provided by operating activities was primarily due to lower net income adjusted for non-cash items, partially offset by lower income taxes paid as well as lower payments for incentive compensation.
  • Underlying free cash flow: cash received of $287.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to cash received of $558.2 million in the prior year. The decrease in cash received was primarily due to higher capital expenditures and lower net income adjusted for non-cash items, partially offset by lower income taxes paid as well as lower payments for incentive compensation.
  • Debt: Total debt at the end of the second quarter of 2022 was $6,804.8 million, and cash and cash equivalents totaled $442.1 million, resulting in net debt of $6,362.7 million and a net debt to underlying EBITDA ratio of 3.20x. As of June 30, 2021, our net debt to underlying EBITDA ratio was 3.35x. We repaid our $500 million 3.5% USD notes upon their maturity on May 1, 2022, using a combination of commercial paper borrowings and cash on hand.
  • Dividends: On May 19, 2022, our Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.38 per share, paid on June 15, 2022, to shareholders of Class A and Class B common stock as of the June 3, 2022 record date. Shareholders of exchangeable shares received the CAD equivalent of dividends declared on Class A and Class B common stock, equal to CAD 0.48 per share. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, the Company declared total cash dividends of $0.76 per share.
  • Share Repurchase Program: On February 17, 2022, our Company's Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program up to an aggregate of $200 million of our Company's Class B common stock through March 31, 2026, with repurchases primarily intended to offset annual employee equity award grants. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, we repurchased 510,000 shares under the share repurchase program at a weighted average price of $51.40 per share, including brokerage commissions, for an aggregate value of $26.2 million.

See Appendix for definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

  • The lower second quarter U.S. GAAPeffective tax rate was primarily due to a decrease in net discrete tax expense in combination with lower income before income taxes. We recognized $2.3 million of net discrete tax benefit in the second quarter of 2022 and recognized $20.4 million of net discrete tax expense in the second quarter of 2021. The difference is primarily driven by the recognition of additional discrete tax expense of approximately $18 million in the second quarter of 2021 related to the remeasurement of our deferred tax liabilities in the U.K. due to the higher income tax rate enacted in the quarter. For the second quarter of 2022, there was a disproportionate impact from the discrete tax benefit recorded on our effective tax rate due to the lower income before income taxes.

Special and Other Non-Core Items

The following special and other non-core items have been excluded from underlying results. See the Appendix for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

  • During the second quarter of 2022, we recognized net special items charges of $0.6 million.
  • Additionally during the second quarter of 2022, we recorded other non-core net charges of $272.6 million primarily consisting of changes in our unrealized mark-to-market positions on commodity hedges.

2022 OUTLOOK

We continue to expect to achieve the following targets for full year 2022. However, the inherent uncertainties that exist in the macroeconomic environment, including continued significant cost inflation and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic could impact our financial performance.

  • Net sales: mid single-digit increase versus 2021 on a constant currency basis.
  • Underlying income (loss) before income taxes: high single-digit increase compared to 2021 on a constant currency basis.
  • Deleverage: We expect to achieve a net debt to underlying EBITDA ratio below 3.0x by the end of 2022.
  • Underlying free cash flow: $1.0 billion, plus or minus 10%.
  • Underlying depreciation and amortization: approximately $750 million, plus or minus 5%.
  • Consolidated net interest expense: approximately $265 million, plus or minus 5%.
  • Underlying effective tax rate: in the range of 22% to 24% for 2022.

On July 14, 2022 our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend on its Class A and Class B common shares of $0.38 per share, payable September 15, 2022, to shareholders of record on September 2, 2022. Similarly, the board of directors of Molson Coors Canada Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, on July 14, 2022, declared a quarterly dividend of approximately CDN$0.49 per share (the Canadian dollar equivalent of the dividend declared on Molson Coors stock) payable on September 15, 2022 to its Class A and Class B exchangeable shareholders of record on September 2, 2022.

On July 27, 2022, we purchased an annuity contract to transfer approximately $340 million, or approximately twenty percent, of U.S. qualified pension plan liabilities and the associated administration of benefits to an insurance company using U.S. qualified pension plan assets. This transaction will have no impact on the amount, timing or form of the retirement benefit payments to the affected retirees and beneficiaries. As a result of the transaction, we will have a reduction to our U.S. qualified pension plan liabilities and assets, and we will remeasure the remaining pension plan assets and obligations using updated actuarial assumptions. Further, a settlement gain (loss) will be measured and reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations during the third quarter of 2022.

Includes gross inter-segment volumes, sales and purchases, which are eliminated in the consolidated totals.

(2)

The unrealized changes in fair value on our commodity swaps, which are economic hedges, are recorded as cost of goods sold within Unallocated. As the exposure we are managing is realized, we reclassify the gain or loss to the segment in which the underlying exposure resides, allowing our segments to realize the economic effects of the derivative without the resulting unrealized mark-to-market volatility.

Worldwide brand volume (or "brand volume" when discussed by segment) reflects owned or actively managed brands sold to unrelated external customers within our geographic markets (net of returns and allowances), royalty volume and our proportionate share of equity investment worldwide brand volume calculated consistently with MCBC owned volume. Financial volume represents owned brands sold to unrelated external customers within our geographical markets, net of returns and allowances as well as contract brewing, wholesale non-owned brand volume and company-owned distribution volume. Contract brewing and wholesale/factored volume is included within financial volume, but is removed from worldwide brand volume, as this is non-owned volume for which we do not directly control performance. Factored volume in our EMEA&APAC segment is the distribution of beer, wine, spirits and other products owned and produced by other companies to the on-premise channel, which is a common arrangement in the U.K. Royalty volume consists of our brands produced and sold by third parties under various license and contract-brewing agreements and because this is owned volume, it is included in worldwide brand volume. Our worldwide brand volume definition also includes an adjustment from Sales-to-Wholesaler (STW) volume to Sales-to-Retailer (STR) volume. We believe the brand volume metric is important because, unlike financial volume and STWs, it provides the closest indication of the performance of our brands in relation to market and competitor sales trends.

As part of the revitalization plan strategy to grow our above premium portfolio and expand beyond the beer aisle, we have de-prioritized and rationalized certain non-core economy SKUs. This strategy is intended to drive sustainable net sales growth and earnings growth, despite potential volume declines as the portfolio mix shifts towards a higher composition of above premium products.

USE OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“U.S. GAAP”), we also use non-GAAP financial measures, as listed and defined below, for operational and financial decision making and to assess Company and segment business performance. These non-GAAP measures should be viewed as supplements to (not substitutes for) our results of operations presented under U.S. GAAP. We have provided reconciliations of all historical non-GAAP measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measure and have consistently applied the adjustments within our reconciliations in arriving at each non-GAAP measure.

Our management uses these metrics to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis; as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance; as useful comparisons to the performance of our competitors; and as metrics of certain management incentive compensation calculations. We believe these measures are used by, and are useful to, investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance.

  • Underlying Income (Loss) before Income Taxes (Closest GAAP Metric: Income (Loss) Before Income Taxes) – Measure of Company’s income (loss) before income taxes excluding the impact of special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements as well as other pre-tax non-core items. These pre-tax non-core items, as referred to throughout the definitions below, include integration related costs, unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses, potential or incurred losses related to certain litigation accruals and settlements and gains and losses on sales of non-operating assets, among other items included in our U.S. GAAP results that warrant adjustment to arrive at non-GAAP results. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective, involve significant management judgment and can vary substantially from company to company.
  • Underlying COGS (Closest GAAP Metric: COGS) – Measure of Company’s COGS adjusted to exclude any special or non-core items (as defined above) which impact the reported GAAP COGS balance. These non-core items include the impact of unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses on our commodity derivative instruments, which are economic hedges, and are recorded through COGS within Unallocated. As the exposure we are managing is realized, we reclassify the gain or loss to the segment in which the underlying exposure resides, allowing our segments to realize the economic effects of the derivatives without the resulting unrealized mark-to-market volatility.
  • Underlying MG&A (Closest GAAP Metric: MG&A) – Measure of Company’s MG&A expense excluding the impact of certain special and non-core items (as defined above).
  • Underlying net income (loss) attributable to MCBC (Closest GAAP Metric: Net income (loss) attributable to MCBC) – Measure of net income (loss) attributable to MCBC excluding the impact of special and non-core items (as defined above), the related tax effects of special and non-core items, and certain other discrete and other non-core tax items.
  • Underlying net income (loss) attributable to MCBC per diluted share (Closest GAAP Metric: Net Income (Loss) attributable to MCBC per diluted share) – Measure of underlying net income (loss) attributable to MCBC as defined above per diluted share.
  • Underlying effective tax rate (Closest GAAP Metric: Effective Tax Rate) – Measure of the Company’s effective tax rate excluding the related tax impact of pre-tax special and non-core items and certain other discrete and non-core tax items. Discrete and other non-core tax items include significant tax audit and prior year reserve adjustments, impact of significant tax legislation and tax rate changes and significant non-recurring and period specific tax items.
  • Underlying free cash flow (Closest GAAP Metric: Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Operating Activities) – Measure of the Company’s operating cash flow calculated as Net Cash Provided by (Used In) Operating Activities less Additions to Properties and excluding the pre-tax impact of certain special and non-core items (as defined above). We consider underlying free cash flow an important measure of our ability to generate cash, grow our business and enhance shareholder value, driven by core operations and after adjusting for non-core items, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets and capital structure.
  • Underlying depreciation and amortization (Closest GAAP Metric: Depreciation & Amortization) – Measure of the Company’s depreciation and amortization excluding the impact of special and non-core items (as defined above). These adjustments primarily consist of accelerated depreciation or amortization taken related to the Company’s strategic exit or restructuring activities.
  • Net debt to underlying earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("underlying EBITDA") (Closest GAAP Metrics: Cash, Debt, & Income (Loss) Before Income Taxes) – Measure of the Company’s leverage calculated as Net debt (defined as current portion of long-term debt and short-term borrowings plus long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents) divided by the trailing twelve month underlying EBITDA. Underlying EBITDA is calculated as Net Income (Loss) excluding Interest expense (income), income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, and the impact of special and non-core items (as defined above). This measure does not represent the company’s maximum leverage ratio as defined under its revolving credit facility, which allows for other adjustments in the calculation of net debt to EBITDA.
  • Constant currency - Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure utilized to measure performance, excluding the impact of translational and certain transactional foreign currency movements, and is intended to be indicative of results in local currency. As we operate in various foreign countries where the local currency may strengthen or weaken significantly versus the U.S. dollar or other currencies used in operations, we utilize a constant currency measure as an additional metric to evaluate the underlying performance of each business without consideration of foreign currency movements. We present all percentage changes for net sales, underlying COGS, underlying MG&A and underlying income (loss) before income taxes in constant currency and calculate the impact of foreign exchange by translating our current period local currency results (that also include the impact of the comparable prior period currency hedging activities) at the average exchange rates during the respective period throughout the year used to translate the financial statements in the comparable prior year period. The result is the current period results in U.S. dollars, as if foreign exchange rates had not changed from the prior year period. Additionally, we exclude any non-operating transactional foreign currency impacts, reported within the Other Income/Expense, net line item, from our current period results.

Our guidance for any of the measures noted above are also non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or otherwise have been adjusted for special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements as well as other non-core items as described above. When we provide guidance for any of the various non-GAAP metrics described above, we do not provide reconciliations of the U.S. GAAP measures as we are unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the actual impact of the special and other non-core items. By their very nature, special and other non-core items are difficult to anticipate with precision because they are generally associated with unexpected and unplanned events that impact our company and its financial results. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures without unreasonable efforts.

(2)

The change in the tax effect of discrete and other non-core tax items is primarily due to the removal of approximately $18 million of discrete tax expense in 2021 related to the remeasurement of deferred tax liabilities due to an increase in the U.K. corporate income tax rate from 19% to 25% as compared to no removal of discrete tax in 2022.
