Calavo Growers, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

June 08, 2021

SANTA PAULA, Calif., June 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calavo Growers, Inc. (Nasdaq-GS: CVGW), a global avocado-industry leader and provider of value-added fresh food, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended April 30, 2021.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Total revenue of $276.8 million, at the high end of guidance and indicating a return to pre-pandemic results.
  • Fresh segment revenue decreased 5%, due primarily to 9% growth in avocado volume, offset by a 10% decrease in avocado prices and 31% lower tomato revenue. Renaissance Food Group (“RFG”) and Foods segments revenues increased 3% and 16% year-over-year, respectively.
  • Gross profit of $22.6 million, or 8.2% of revenue, compared to $22.1 million, or 7.9% of revenue, for the comparable period last year. The increase in gross profit margin percentage was attributable to volume growth in the Fresh segment.
  • Net income of $8.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $3.3 million, or ($0.19) per diluted share, for the comparable period last year. Adjusted net income was $7.7 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $7.0 million, or $0.40 per share last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $15.0 million, which is a 9.5% increase compared to $13.7 million for the same period last year.

Adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

Management Commentary
“We are indeed seeing positive signs as the economy reopens and we are pleased with our recovery, which is driving our long-term optimism. For the first half of 2021, we recorded the highest avocado volume in the last five years—reflecting growing consumer demand across all our end markets,” said James E. Gibson, CEO of Calavo Growers.

“As our various markets slowly re-emerge from the pandemic, we delivered strong returns this quarter. Even with 9.5% EBITDA growth, profitability was restrained as our company managed through a tight labor market, higher commodity costs and higher freight costs.

“Our Fresh segment reported gross profit in line with previous quarters due to the team’s skillful management in both sourcing and sales growth. Our RFG and Foods segments saw a return to year-over-year sales growth as a result of improved demand, particularly within the retail grocery channel. For comparison purposes, RFG sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 included $9.8 million attributable to RFG’s Midwest co-packer.

“We are also encouraged by the continued growth in our international business. Demand for guacamole, for example, continues to increase, and our near-term outlook remains favorable with a number of new customer opportunities.

“As the year progresses, we are focusing our energy on areas we can control and advancing our strategic goals. We continue to monitor inflation, the labor market and the various supply chains to get a better read on how the second half of the year will evolve. We continue to focus on our strategic initiatives designed to enhance our long-term growth prospects, capitalize on opportunities to increase operating leverage, further our sustainability initiatives, and realize synergies across our entire organization, with the goal of improving profitability, sustainability and shareholder value. To that end, we have created ‘Project Uno,’ which is a strategic review of the current and future challenges in our business. We will be teaming with an outside consultant for this enterprise-wide business and operational review. Through this project, we are evaluating opportunities to enhance revenue growth, streamline operations, drive efficiencies and make investments that strengthen our competitive position and improve margins over the long term. The project is in its early stages, and we expect to provide additional information and details later in the year,” noted Gibson.

Second Quarter 2021 Consolidated Financial Review
Total revenue for the second quarter 2021 was $276.8 million, which is comparable to $281.2 million for the second quarter 2020, which included one and one-half months of pre-pandemic impact. While avocado volumes were 9% higher than the prior-year period, total revenue was impacted by the lower average selling price of avocados in the Company’s Fresh segment, which resulted from increased supply from Mexico. Fresh segment sales decreased 5% and offset higher sales volumes in the RFG and Foods business segments.

Gross profit for the second quarter was $22.6 million, or 8.2% of revenue, compared to $22.1 million, or 7.9% of revenue, for the same period last year. The increase in gross profit margin percentage was attributable to improvements in the Fresh segment, partially offset by lower gross profit margin percentages in the RFG and Foods segments.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense for the second quarter totaled $13.7 million, or 4.9% of revenue, compared to $14.5 million, or 5.2% of revenue, for the same period last year. The year-over-year improvement in SG&A expense was primarily related to lower sales broker commissions and stock-based compensation.

Net income for the second quarter was $8.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted share. This compares with a net loss of $3.3 million, or $(0.19) per diluted share, for the same period last year. Included in these results were a $3.5 million non-cash, unrealized gain and a $10.3 million non-cash unrealized loss in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 and 2020, respectively, related to the Company’s ownership interest in the Limoneira Company.

Adjusted net income was $7.7 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the second quarter, compared to adjusted net income of $7.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $15.0 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $13.7 million for the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $5.6 million as of April 30, 2021. Total liquidity at quarter end was approximately $144 million, including cash, investments, and borrowings available under a line of credit. This is an improvement of 30% compared to $111 million last year.

The Company ended the quarter with $49.3 million of total debt, which included $42.3 million of borrowings under its line of credit and $7.0 million of long-term obligations and finance leases.

Second Quarter Business Segment Performance
Fresh
Second quarter 2021 sales in Calavo’s Fresh business segment decreased 5% to $161.7 million from $170.9 million in the same period last year. Increased avocado supply from Mexico negatively impacted the average selling price, which was down 10% from the same period last year. Lower selling prices were offset by increased sales volume, which improved 9% from the year-ago period. Following staffing investments made earlier in the year, international revenue increased 46%. Fresh segment gross profit for the second quarter of 2021 was $15.0 million, or 9.3% of segment sales, compared to $14.4 million, or 8.4% of segment sales, for the same period last year. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to volume growth. The Company’s gross profit per carton for avocados was in line with last year and historical averages.

Renaissance Food Group (RFG)
RFG business segment sales in the second quarter 2021 were $96.3 million, up 3% from $93.5 million in the same period last year, reflecting improving demand as the country reopens from the pandemic, but offset by the closure of RFG’s Midwest co-packer, which occurred in April 2020. RFG sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 period included $9.8 million attributable to the co-packer. Segment gross profit declined to $2.3 million, or 2.4% of segment sales, from $2.7 million, or 2.9% of segment sales, for the same period last year. Gross margin was adversely impacted late in the quarter by market-wide factors such as higher labor costs, poor fruit quality and yield, and increased freight costs.

Foods
Sales in the Foods segment totaled $20.7 million for the second quarter 2021, 16% higher than $17.9 million in the same period last year due to improving conditions as foodservice began recovering from the pandemic. Following staffing investments made earlier in the year, international revenue increased 36%. Segment gross profit totaled $5.3 million, or 25.6% of sales, for the second quarter, compared to $4.9 million, or 27.6% of sales, for the same period last year. The increase in gross profit for the second quarter was primarily due to a decrease in avocado costs.

Outlook
The Company is providing the following expectations for the third fiscal quarter of 2021:

  • Revenue in a range of $280 million to $300 million; and
  • Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $11 million to $15 million.

“The Adjusted EBITDA forecast reflects near-term inflationary pressure on labor, raw materials and freight. We expect that by the end of the year many of these pressures will be mitigated as we are working on pricing initiatives with our business partners and accelerating development of internal operational efficiencies to alleviate these unprecedented inflationary issues,” concluded Gibson.

The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of expected adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable expected GAAP measure due to the unknown effect, timing and potential significance of the effects of non-cash income and losses associated with unconsolidated entities, among others. These items have in the past, and may in the future, significantly affect GAAP results in a particular period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS, which are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or “GAAP.”

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. excluding (1) interest income and expense, (2) income tax (benefit) provision, (3) depreciation and amortization and (4) stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA with further adjustments for (1) non-cash net losses recognized from unconsolidated entities, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) write-off of long-lived assets, (4) acquisition-related costs, (5) restructuring and certain severance costs, (6) certain litigation and other related costs, and (7) one-time items. Adjusted EBITDA is a primary metric by which management evaluates the operating performance of the business, on which certain operating expenditures and internal budgets are based. The adjustments to calculate EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are items recognized and recorded under GAAP in particular periods but might be viewed as not necessarily coinciding with the underlying business operations for the periods in which they are so recognized and recorded.

Adjusted net income is defined as net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. excluding (1) non-cash net losses recognized from unconsolidated entities, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) write-off of long-lived assets, (4) acquisition-related costs, (5) restructuring and certain severance costs, (6) certain litigation and other related costs, and (7) one-time items. Adjusted net income and the related measure of adjusted diluted EPS exclude certain items that are recognized and recorded under GAAP in particular periods but might be viewed as not necessarily coinciding with the underlying business operations for the periods in which they are so recognized and recorded. We believe adjusted net income affords investors a different view of the overall financial performance of the Company than adjusted EBITDA and the GAAP measure of net income (loss) attributable to Calavo Growers, Inc. Additionally, the Company’s senior management is compensated in part on the basis of Adjusted Net Income.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Items are considered one-time in nature if they are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual and have not occurred in the past two years or are not expected to recur in the next two years, in accordance with SEC rules. One-time items are identified in the notes to the reconciliations in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Non-GAAP information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for, or superior to, any measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. None of these metrics are presented as measures of liquidity. The way the Company measures EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies and may not be identical to corresponding measures used in Company agreements.
