Management Commentary
"I am pleased with our fourth quarter results as we continued to focus on the fundamentals of our operations," said Lee E. Cole, President and Chief Executive Officer of Calavo Growers, Inc. "We continue to work toward completing the sale of our fresh cut business to F&S Fresh Foods and will share more details when we are able. We look forward to delivering shareholder value in fiscal 2024 as we also celebrate the Company's 100th anniversary.

"Turning to our financial performance, we generated approximately $7.0 million in adjusted EBITDA during the fourth quarter on $241 million of net sales. Avocado margins softened compared to the third quarter due to seasonality and an unfavorable foreign exchange impact of $3.0 million; however, margins improved versus the prior year quarter due to our margin management discipline. Gross profit improved sequentially in our prepared segment as we completed onboarding for a large national account customer in our fresh cut division, while our guacamole business continued to perform well operationally and benefitted from lower input costs."

Fourth Quarter 2023 Consolidated Financial Review
Total net sales for the fourth quarter 2023 were $241.2 million, compared to $243.6 million for the fourth quarter 2022, a decline of 1.0%. Grown segment sales increased 5.6%, and Prepared segment sales decreased 7.9%. The average selling price of avocados in the Grown segment increased by 25% compared to the prior year.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter was $15.5 million, or 6.4% of net sales, compared to $20.4 million and 8.4%, respectively, for the same period last year.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the fourth quarter totaled $14.1 million, or 5.9% of net sales, compared to $17.1 million and 7.0% of net sales for the same period last year. The decrease from the prior year was related primarily to lower incentive compensation expense and lower outside service costs.

Net loss for the fourth quarter was $7.9 million, or $0.45 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.

Adjusted net loss was $5.8 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $0.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was $7.0 million compared to $9.6 million for the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity
The Company ended the year with $46.3 million of total debt, which included $39.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility and $7.3 million of other long-term obligations and finance leases. Cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, totaled $2.9 million, and the Company had $40.0 million of available liquidity as of October 31, 2023.

Segment Performance
Grown
Grown segment gross profit was $8.7 million, modestly higher than in the prior year quarter. Segment performance included an unfavorable foreign exchange balance sheet translation impact of $3.0 million. Excluding the foreign exchange impact, avocado margins were meaningfully higher than in the prior year quarter. Avocado prices receded from their seasonal summer highs and averaged near $40 per case, well above prices in the prior year quarter. Calavo's fourth quarter avocado volume declined 8.7% from the prior year as we prioritized margin in our volume management decisions. Our sales and operations teams currently are focused on fulfilling customer demand for the Super Bowl.

Prepared
Prepared segment gross profit declined $5.1 million from the prior year quarter, generating a segment gross margin of 5.8%. The gross profit decline is attributed primarily to lower volume and higher input costs. While down compared to the prior year, gross profit increased $3.1 million sequentially as we completed onboarding activities for a major national account customer. The fresh cut division achieved a gross margin of 4.2% for the quarter. Syndicated retail data indicates that fiscal year-to-date unit sales were slightly down for the vegetable category but turned positive for fruit. Dollar sales for both produce categories were modestly positive. Unit sales for the fixed weight deli category were about flat, while dollar sales were up over 5%. Gross profit in the guacamole division increased to $2.5 million from $2.3 million in the prior year quarter. The guacamole business continues to benefit from lower fruit input costs and operational improvements. We are focused on growing volume in our prepared business in fiscal 2024.

Investigation into Mexico Operations
On January 16, 2024, the Company announced that its internal audit process had identified to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors certain matters that the Board of Directors determined after the fiscal year end merited enhanced evaluation. A Special Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Special Committee") was established to commence an investigation, with the assistance of external legal counsel and external forensic accountants. The Special Committee determined that certain of those matters related to the Company's operations in Mexico raised potential issues under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"). The Company has voluntarily disclosed this ongoing internal investigation to the SEC and the Department of Justice ("DOJ"), and the Company intends to fully cooperate with the SEC and the DOJ in connection with these matters.

Any determination that the Company's operations or activities were not in compliance with laws, including the FCPA, could result in the imposition of material fines and penalties and the imposition of equitable remedies. The Company cannot currently predict the timing of completion or the outcome of its internal investigation or of any actions that may be taken by the SEC, the DOJ or Mexican authorities in connection with the matters under investigation, and the Company cannot currently estimate the amount or range of loss or potential impact on its consolidated financial statements associated with these matters.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP measures EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, 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 (income) recognized from unconsolidated entities, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) write-off of long-lived assets, (4) acquisition-related costs, (5) restructuring-related costs, including 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. Additionally, the Company's senior management is compensated in part on the basis of Adjusted EBITDA. 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 (loss) 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-related costs, including certain severance costs, (6) certain litigation and other related costs, and (7) one-time items. Adjusted net income (loss) and the related measure of adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share 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 (loss) 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.

Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial tables below.

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. 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 and adjusted net income (loss) may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies and may not be identical to corresponding measures used in Company agreements.
