04/07/16 02:03 PMConAgra Q3 Earnings Conference Call: Full Transcript - Operator: Good morning and welcome to today's ConAgra Third Quarter Earnings Conference Call. This program is being recorded. My name is Kindas Griffin and I will be your conference facilitator. [Operator Instructions] At this time, I'd like to introduce your hosts from ConAgra Foods for today's program; Sean Connolly, Chief Executive Officer; John Gehring, Chief Financial Officer; and Chris Klinefelter, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead, Mr. Klinefelter.   Chris Klinefelter: Vice President of Investor Relations. : Good morning. During today's remarks we'll make some forward-looking statements and while we're making those statements in good faith and are confident about our Company's direction, we do not have any guarantee about the results that we will achieve. So, if you would like to learn more about the risks and factors that can influence and impact our expected results perhaps materially, I'll refer you to the documents we file with the SEC which include cautionary language. Also, we'll be discussing some non-GAAP financial measures during the call today and a reconciliations of those measures to the most directly comparable measures for Regulation G compliance can be found in either the earnings press release, Q&A or on our website. Now, I'll turn it over to Sean.   Sean Connolly: Chief Executive Officer: Thanks, Chris. Good morning everyone and thanks for joining us to discuss our third quarter fiscal 2016 earnings. As you saw in our earnings release, we delivered another positive quarter, as results exceeded our expectations with comparable EPS of $0.68, up from $0.59 in the prior year. Yesterday was my one-year anniversary as Chief Executive Officer of ConAgra Foods and I can tell you I am pleased with what we are accomplishing. Clearly, it's been an active year as we've methodically taken the necessary steps to help ConAgra start to unlock the value opportunity that I saw so clearly when I first started thinking about taking this job. Simply put, we are driving focus and discipline into the company and the impact can be seen not only in our P&L, but also in our culture where our team is energized, optimistic and determined about the path ahead. And, while we are pleased with our progress over the past year, we are also clear-eyed that there is much more to do. Accordingly, our team remains hard at work on executing our plans to build a stronger, more consistent and more valuable ConAgra Foods. Before John and I get into the details of our Q3 results, I want to take a step back and provide you with my perspective on where we are relative to our strategic plans. In February, we completed the sale of our private label operations to TreeHouse Foods, marking the conclusion of a robust sale process. The sale enables us to sharpen our focus on our consumer and commercial businesses and it provides us with meaningful capital. We have already deployed $2.15 billion of the proceeds to reduce debt, and going forward, as part of a balanced capital allocation program, we plan to pursue further debt reductions. As we have discussed previously, the sale also provided a sizable tax benefit which can be used in the future. In addition to completing the sale of our private label operations, we have been hard at work at strengthening the foundation of our two businesses. We are executing our $300 million efficiency plan, primarily within consumer, to build ConAgra into a lean, more focused company. We are confident this effort will improve profitability, advance our growth agenda and unlock shareholder value. As we have said previously, we expect to realize the majority of our efficiency improvements in fiscal 2017 and 2018. We also remain on track to bring our consumer and corporate leadership teams together under one roof at our new headquarters in Chicago this summer. I am excited about our plans to develop a more open physical space that will facilitate collaboration and accelerate our shift to a leaner, more nimble, innovative and performance-oriented culture. Finally, we remain on track to complete the separation of ConAgra into two public companies in the fall of calendar 2016. As we said when we announced the proposed spin-off, our goal is to enable both ConAgra brand and Lamb Weston to operate as vibrant pure play companies with enhanced strategic focus and flexibility. I will talk more in a moment about the progress we are making in each of these businesses, but let me reiterate that when you take all factors into consideration, we believe the separation of ConAgra brands and Lamb Weston is the right path to maximize value as we expect shareholders to benefit from better operating performance and more consistency from both businesses following the separation. As you know, there is a lot of work to complete between the announcement of the proposed spin and the separation itself. We are hard at work on that front and we will have a lot of more information to share via SEC filings and Investor Days over time. Ultimately, our ability to drive value across these businesses is a function of how well we execute. To that end, our solid Q3 results exceeded our expectations and gives me confidence that we are identifying the right actions to drive improved profitability. So, on to Q3 in detail. Our Q3 results for the Consumer Foods segment reflect continued progress and momentum around establishing a higher quality investment grade volume base. Even though we experienced a volume decline, we had strong price mix during the quarter. We've been implementing initiatives to improve pricing discipline and trade efficiency while driving renovation and targeted brand investments. Importantly, as we undertake these actions, we remain relentlessly focused on execution. We are making good progress on all these fronts. From a top line perspective, we saw volume declines where we expected them. The vast majority of the Q3 consumer volume decline was on Banquet, 90% to be exact. But more broadly, in the second half of last fiscal year, we funded several major deep discount promotions, particularly in our frozen business. These kinds of deals can drive big spikes in low margin promoted volume. And given our deliberate plan to reduce our reliance on deep discount promotions and given the promoted volume spikes imbedded in our year ago comps, we expected lower promoted volume. What we were counting on though was solid performance on most base consumption trends and strong margin expansion broadly and that is basically what we got. You see the entire segment's margin expansion in the release, but it’s important to note that on Banquet, we saw over 200 basis points of gross margin expansion despite investments in higher quality. Further, we also made other below the line investments to build the brand the right way for the long haul, namely A&P support. These collective investments do not have the same immediate impact of promoted price points below a dollar, but they represent the right way to manage a branded asset for long term value creation. This notion has been missing for too long at ConAgra. We will be relentless as we continue these efforts because at the end of the day we want sustainably stronger margins, which requires strong brands, and strong brands don't compete on the back of giveaway deals. As a result of our efforts on a comparable basis, operating profit was $340 million, up about 17%. Operating margins were up more than 300 basis points from the year ago period driven by these three factors: price mix, supply chain productivity, and modest material deflation. Our focus in Consumer Foods will continue to be on expanded margins. The cornerstone of this effort is strengthening the brands that generate the best return. By focusing on our strongest brands, we are getting better price realization and trade efficiencies. As you've heard us discuss before, our approach provides the fuel to reinvest in brands that have the right fundamentals, are consumer relevant and have accretive margins. And we just not talking about investment, during the third quarter, we supported our brands in a highly disciplined way as evidenced by our 12% increase in A&P support. We've increased A&P spending 13% year-to-date. We have been investing in brands with clear differentiators and relevant consumer benefits like Marie Callenders, Hunt's, RO*TEL, Reddi-wip, Slim Jim and PAM. I will talk in a moment about our efforts in the frozen category, but in the center of the store we continue to make good progress with our real food initiative around the Hunt's brand and we are very pleased with the progress we are making with RO*TEL which delivered very strong results during the Super Bowl. In addition, through focused execution, we increased sales, built share and won the holiday season across Marie Callender's Pies, Reddi-wip and PAM. Our investments are also coming in the form of innovation and renovation. As you heard me discuss, we intend to continue enhancing our portfolio with the focus on further premiumization, wellness and authenticity. We expect to achieve this through a combination of organic innovation and smart acquisitions. A great example of our investment in innovation comes from our Healthy Choice Simply Steamers line, which you've heard us discuss previously. This is a clean label, nothing artificial version of our Cafe Steamers offering and we're continue to drive wellness-based innovation with this line. In the fourth quarter, we're adding four new premium varieties, including Three Cheese Tortellini, a sweet and spicy Asian-style Noodle Bowl , Creamy Spinach and Tomato Linguine, and an Unwrapped Burrito Bowl. Consistent with the consumer focus on authenticity, these new recipes will spotlight organic non-GMO ingredients. Renovation will also be a driver of margin expansion. Building on an example we touched upon last quarter, our work to restage the Banquet franchise continues. As I noted earlier, Banquet represented to vast majority of our volume decline in the third quarter as we reduced our reliance on deep discount promotion and raised our everyday shelf price above $1. But we recognized it will take time to rebuild the buying rate among households that are long accustomed to $1 Banquet, we are confident that the higher price points enable us to invest in product enhancements and higher quality A&P that reeducates consumers about the brand. Not all consumers will transition with the brand and we are okay with that. But given the higher quality, we expect to attract new consumers to the franchise in time. We continue to believe our plan for Banquet is the right one for its long-term brand health and financial strength. And its highly disciplined approach to margin expansion is one we plan to methodically apply to other brands with similar opportunities. Another primary staging candidate is Bertolli, which we see as right for the same type of targeted investment. With Bertolli, we are stepping up our work to renovate our frozen skillet business and make the brand even more relevant to today's shoppers. We are expanding occasions through the addition of family-size skillets within our lineup and looking ahead, we are embarking on major renovation investments in the Bertolli brand to upgrade proteins such as all-natural chicken and dramatically simplified ingredient labels. As we continue to renovate around the brand, we will support the product upgrades with increased marketing spend to drive profitable growth. As I've said many times, unlocking the full value potential of our branded portfolio will be a process not a flip of the switch. But it a battle-tested process and it will succeed. It all starts with the unwavering belief that strong margins are the key to maximizing value and that strong margins are the byproducts of executional excellence across disciplines, spanning everything from supply chain productivity to pricing and trade analytics to mix management and targeted high ROI marketing to exciting innovation. Make no mistake about it, ConAgra is becoming much stronger in each of these disciplines and you are seeing the impact in our margin expansion. Over time, as we lean ourselves off of our historical over-reliance on deep discount trade deals and rebuild our innovation pipeline supported by more effective marketing, you'll see sales grow, but in a much higher quality fashion. We are confident that there is a lot of room for progress and we are relentlessly focused on continuing to execute against our goals. It is about the delta, meaning the change we can drive as opposed to a snapshot assessment. Overall, I am very encouraged by the work going on in Consumer Foods. Investment creates a virtuous cycle. Over time, stronger brands will lead to better pricing power and higher margins and we are clearly on the right path to maximizing value. Now, turning to Commercial Foods, net sales were approximately $1.1 billion in the quarter, up 6% compared to the prior year. The Commercial Foods segment's operating profit was $175 million, up 21% on a comparable basis. While the Commercial Foods segment posted strong results across the board, Lamb Weston was particularly strong. Sales for Lamb Weston's potato operations grew across North America during the quarter as well as in international markets. International sales performance for Lamb Weston was noticeably strong, reflecting the lapping of the impact of the West Coast Port Labor dispute in the year ago period as well as improving demand in key Asian markets. As we've indicated before, Lam Weston remains well-positioned to capitalize on the significant international growth opportunities created by the aggressive emerging market expansion of major quick service restaurant chains. In our Lamb Weston North American business, we continue to see positive growth momentum across many of our key customers in the quick-serve restaurant and operator distributor channels. We have industry-leading innovation and customer service and our breadth of diversified products continues to position this business as a clear market leader in North America. Now, before I turn it over to John, I want to take a moment to acknowledge our talented team as we work to transform ConAgra into a stronger, more consistent company with a more valuable future. While there has been significant change during the past year, our people are energized and focused on serving our customers and I am excited about the path forward. Over to you, John.   John Gehring: Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer: Thank you, Sean, and good morning everyone. In my comments this morning, I will address several topics including a recap of our fiscal third quarter performance including discontinued operations, comparability matters, cash flow, capital and balance sheet items, and our outlook for the balance of the fiscal year. I'll start with some comments on our performance for our fiscal third quarter. Overall diluted EPS from continuing operations, as reported, was $0.41. After adjusting for items impacting comparability, diluted EPS for the fiscal third quarter including discontinued operations was $0.68, which is ahead of our expectations and compares favorably to our prior year quarter's comparable earnings per share of $0.59. Both our Consumer Foods and our Commercial Foods segments performed very well. In our Consumer Foods segment, net sales were approximately $1.9 billion for the quarter, down about 2% from the year ago period. This reflects a 4% decline in volume and a negative 1% impact from foreign exchange, partially offset by a 3% improvement in price mix. Segment operating profit adjusted for items impacting comparability was $339 million or up about 17% from the year ago period. Operating margin on a comparable basis expanded about 300 basis points versus the year ago quarter. Margin expansion reflects pricing discipline, mix management, supply chain efficiencies, and favorable input costs, offset by higher marketing and incentive costs. Foreign exchange this quarter had negative impacts of $28 million on net sales and about $12 million on operating profit. On marketing, Consumer Foods advertising and promotion expense for the quarter was $91 million, up about 12% from the prior year quarter, reflecting our efforts to continue to strengthen and support our brands. In our Commercial Foods segment, net sales were approximately $1.1 billion, up about 6% from the prior year quarter. The Commercial Foods segment’s operating profit was $175 million or 21% above last year's third quarter operating profit. The operating results largely reflect a strong profit increase in our Lamb Weston business, driven by strong volume performance both domestically and internationally, margin expansion and the benefit of lapping the West Coast Port Labor dispute in the year ago quarter. Equity method investment earnings, excluding items impacting comparability were $27 million for the quarter and $33 million in the year ago period. The year-over-year decrease reflects lower earnings from our Ardent Mills joint venture, principally driven by unfavorable weak market conditions, which from time to time, can impact margins. Moving on the corporate expenses, for the quarter, corporate expenses were approximately $155 million. Adjusting for items impacting comparability, corporate expenses were $73 million versus $52 million in the year ago quarter. The increase principally relates to higher incentives, reflecting the significant improvement in operating performance this year, and the timing of the related incentive accruals year-over-year. On our SG&A cost savings initiatives, we are making good progress and expect to see significant benefits over the next couple of years. I would note that our fiscal third quarter results from continuing operations reflect some initial benefits from our cost savings programs, partially offset by modest stranded costs from our private label divestiture. Further, I would highlight two other points related to our cost savings initiatives. First, the benefits of our previously announced cost savings programs are concentrated in the consumer business. And second, we have developed aggressive targets and plans so that we can offset modest stranded costs as they arise, as well as selectively invest back into the business to build capabilities that will expand operating margins overtime. Discontinued operations posted EPS of $0.05 per diluted share this quarter. It reflects operations of the private label business through February 1, 2016 or about nine weeks of the fiscal quarter. After adjusting for items impacting comparability, the private label discontinued operations earned $0.11 per share this quarter, including about $0.05 per share of benefit related to the elimination of depreciation and amortization expense. Expected comparable earnings from the private label operations were included in our earlier guidance for the quarter. Also at this time we estimate that the divestiture of the private label operations gave rise to a capital loss of approximately $4.2 billion pre-tax or $1.6 billion after tax, which can be utilized over the next five years. We remain confident that the company will be able to realize significant tax benefits in the future as we work to reshape our portfolio in a disciplined manner. On comparability items, this quarter included four items; first, approximately $0.16 per share of net expense related to restructuring charges; second, approximately $0.04 per share of net expense related to transaction costs incurred in connection with debt reduction this quarter; third, approximately $0.03 per share of income related to a pension settlement gain at a joint venture; and finally, we included in comparable earnings approximately $0.11 per share of income related to items in discontinued operations for which we have provided additional details in our Regulation G disclosures in the release. On cash flow, capital and balance sheet items, we ended the quarter with $503 million of cash on hand and no outstanding commercial paper borrowings. Total operating cash flows through the fiscal third quarter were approximately $695 million versus $740 million in the year ago quarter. The decrease is principally driven by higher tax payments ...Full story available on Benzinga.com
