Nomad Foods Limited: Nomad Foods Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue growth of +0.5% with Adjusted EPS of €0.43

Raise Full Year Adjusted EPS Guidance to €1.57 - €1.60

Announces a New Share Repurchase Authorization of up to $500 million

Announces intention to launch quarterly dividend in early 2024

FELTHAM, England, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Nomad Foods Limited (NYSE: NOMD), today reported financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2023. Key operating highlights and financial performance for the third quarter 2023, when compared to the third quarter 2022, include:

  • Reported revenue increased 0.5% to €764 million
  • Organic revenue growth of 1.6%
  • Reported Profit for the period of €78 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of €140 million
  • Adjusted EPS of €0.43

Management Comments

Stéfan Descheemaeker, Nomad Foods' Chief Executive Officer, stated, "In the third quarter, we maintained our organic sales momentum from the first half of the year. Additionally, during September we kicked off our stepped-up A&P investment plan with a new and dynamic media campaign augmented by a comprehensive in-store promotional program, positioning us for a return to sustainable, long-term volume and market share growth. As a result of our third quarter operational performance, share repurchase, and our positive expectations for the end of 2023, we are again raising our Adjusted EPS guidance range to €1.57 to €1.60 from our previous range of €1.54 to €1.57. We maintain our guidance for Adjusted Free Cash Flow conversion in the range of 90% to 95%, and we are on course to generate approximately €250 million of Adjusted Free Cash Flow for the year."

Noam Gottesman, Nomad Foods' Co-Chairman and Founder, commented, "We are pleased to report another set of strong results this quarter with a continuation of our organic revenue growth trend. Our financial, commercial, and supply chain strategies are all delivering results consistent with our expectations which contributes to this success. We repurchased €65.8 million in shares this quarter and continue to believe our shares represent a significant value creation opportunity. Also, we have approved a new $500 million share repurchase authorization to replace our current program, which expires at the end of this year. Furthermore, to complement our capital allocation strategy, we also plan to institute a regular quarterly dividend in 2024, subject to board approval, with details to follow early next year. We believe the combination of a new share repurchase program and a dividend further underscores our commitment to maximizing shareholder returns."

Third Quarter of 2023 results compared to the Third Quarter of 2022

  • Revenue increased 0.5% to €764 million. Organic revenue growth of 1.6% was comprised of a 11.2% decline in volume/mix offset by a 12.8% increase in price.
  • Gross profit decreased 2.0% to €217 million. Gross margin declined 70 basis points to 28.4%, due to an unfavorable comparison in the timing of pricing delivery in the prior year.
  • Adjusted operating expenses increased 10.7% to €100 million due to increased A&P investment in the business.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 8.8% to €140 million due to the aforementioned factors. Adjusted Profit for the period decreased 18.7% to €73 million due to the impact of the refinancing we performed in November 2022, resulting in higher cash interest payments on a portion of our debt.
  • Adjusted EPS decreased 17.3% to €0.43, reflecting the decrease in Adjusted Profit after tax due to higher interest charges. Reported EPS decreased 2.1% to €0.46.

For the Nine Months ended September 30, 2023 results compared to the Nine Months ended September 30, 2022

  • Revenue increased 4.3% to €2,284 million. Organic revenue growth of 6.0% was comprised of a 10.6% decline in volume/mix offset by a 16.6% increase in price.
  • Gross profit increased 4.6% to €651 million. Gross margin increased 10 basis points to 28.5%, linked to the successful recovery of higher input costs through pricing, and a benefit in the cost of goods sold from the tail end of our cover positions from 2022.
  • Adjusted operating expenses increased 8.8% to €301 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 1.7% to €418 million. Adjusted Profit for the period decreased 5.6% to €223 million due to the aforementioned factors.
  • Adjusted EPS decreased 4.4% to €1.29, reflecting the decrease in Adjusted Profit after tax. Reported EPS decreased 20.5% to 0.97.

2023 Guidance

For the full year 2023, driven by our operational performance and share repurchase program, we are raising our Adjusted EPS guidance to €1.57 to €1.60 from €1.54 to €1.57. We maintain our full-year guidance of mid-single-digit organic revenue growth and Adjusted Cash Flow conversion in the range of 90% to 95%, unchanged from our last update in September.

New Share Repurchase Authorization

The Company's Board of Directors has approved a new share repurchase authorization of up to $500 million . This new program replaces the previous authorization which was established in August 2021 and finishes at the end of 2023. The new program will expire in 2026.

Quarterly Dividend

In addition to our share repurchase program, and subject to approval by our board of directors, we intend to initiate in 2024 a quarterly dividend with details to follow.

Financial Information

Nomad Foods is presenting Adjusted and Organic financial information, which is considered non-IFRS financial information, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and for comparative purposes, the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Adjusted financial information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 presented in this press release reflects the historical reported financial statements of Nomad Foods, adjusted primarily for share based payment expenses and related employer payroll taxes, non-operating M&A related costs, exceptional items and foreign currency translation charges/gains.

Adjusted EBITDA is profit or loss for the period before taxation, net financing costs, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude, when they occur, the impacts of exited markets, acquisition purchase price adjustments and exceptional items such as restructuring charges, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges and other unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, we exclude other adjustments such as the impact of share based payment expenses and related employer payroll taxes, and non-operating M&A related costs, because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs, can vary significantly in amount and frequency, and are unrelated to our underlying operating performance. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA provides important comparability of underlying operating results, allowing investors and management to assess operating performance on a consistent basis.

Adjusted EBITDA should be read together with, and not as an alternative to, profit/(loss) for the period, determined in accordance with IFRS.

Adjusted Profit for the period is defined as profit for the period excluding, when they occur, the impacts of exited markets, acquisition purchase price adjustments and exceptional items such as restructuring charges, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, net financing income/(cost) on amendment of terms of debt, interest cost on tax relating to legacy tax audits, foreign exchange translation gains/(losses), foreign exchange gains/(losses) on derivatives, as well as certain other items considered unusual or non-recurring in nature. In addition, we exclude other adjustments such as the impact of share based payment expenses and related employer payroll taxes, and non-operating M&A related costs, because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs, can vary significantly in amount and frequency, and are unrelated to our underlying operating performance. The Company believes Adjusted Profit after tax provides important comparability of underlying operating results, allowing investors and management to assess operating performance on a consistent basis.

Adjusted EPS is defined as basic earnings per share excluding, when they occur, the impacts of exited markets, acquisition purchase price adjustments and exceptional items such as restructuring charges, goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, net financing income/(cost) on amendment of terms of debt, interest cost on tax relating to legacy tax audits, foreign exchange translation gains/(losses), foreign exchange gains/(losses) on derivatives, as well as certain other items considered unusual or non-recurring in nature. In addition, we exclude other adjustments such as the impact of share based payment expenses and related employer payroll taxes, and non-operating M&A related costs, because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs, can vary significantly in amount and frequency, and are unrelated to our underlying operating performance. The Company believes Adjusted EPS provides important comparability of underlying operating results, allowing investors and management to assess operating performance on a consistent basis.

Organic revenue growth/(decline) is an adjusted measurement of our operating results. The comparison for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 presented in this press release takes into consideration only those activities that were in effect during both time periods. Organic revenue growth/(decline) reflects reported revenue adjusted for currency translation and non-comparable trading items such as expansion, acquisitions, disposals, closures, trading day impacts or any other event that artificially impacts the comparability of our results.

Adjustments for currency translation are calculated by translating data of the current and comparative periods using a budget foreign exchange rate that is set once a year as part of the Company's internal annual forecast process.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow - Adjusted free cash flow is the amount of cash generated from operating activities less cash flows (i) related to exceptional items (as described above), (ii) non-operating M&A related costs and (iii) working capital movements on employer taxes associated with share based payment awards, plus (i) capital expenditure (on property, plant and equipment and intangible assets), (ii) net interest paid, (iii) proceeds/(payments) on settlement of derivatives where hedge accounting is not applied and (iv) payments of lease liabilities. Adjusted free cash flow reflects cash flows that could be used for payment of dividends, repayment of debt or to fund acquisitions or other strategic objectives.

Adjusted and Organic non-IFRS financial information should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements of Nomad Foods included in this press release as well as the historical financial statements of the Company previously filed with the SEC.

Nomad Foods believe its non-IFRS financial measures provide an important additional measure with which to monitor and evaluate the Company's ongoing financial results, as well as to reflect its acquisitions. Nomad Foods' calculation of these financial measures may be different from the calculations used by other companies and comparability may therefore be limited. The Adjusted and Organic financial information presented herein is based upon certain assumptions that Nomad Foods believes to be reasonable and is presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of any anticipated financial position or future results of operations that the Company will experience. You should not consider the Company's non-IFRS financial measures an alternative or substitute for the Company's reported results and are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these results and information as they may not be representative of our actual or future results as a Company.

Please see on pages 8 to 13, the non-IFRS reconciliation tables attached hereto and the schedules accompanying this release for an explanation and reconciliation of the Adjusted and Organic financial information to the most directly comparable IFRS measure.
