Molson Coors Reports Higher Net Sales And Underlying After-Tax Income For The Second Quarter

Stocks in this article: TAP

International MG&A expense increased 26 percent, driven by incremental brand investments in priority markets, along with infrastructure investments. Asset-value and cost adjustments in our China joint venture contributed 6 percent to the increase.


Underlying Corporate expenses totaled $55.2 million pretax for the second quarter. This reduction of $1.7 million was primarily due to lower project expense, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Special and Other Non-Core Items

The following special and other non-core items have been excluded from underlying pretax earnings.

During the quarter, Molson Coors special items resulted in a $21.2 million pretax charge driven primarily by $10.4 million of goodwill and other intangible asset impairments related to our China business, a $7.2 million asset write-off related to the discontinuation of primary packaging and $4.5 million of restructuring charges in the UK, and $1.4 million of special termination benefit costs in Canada, partially offset by a $2.3 million gain related to Toronto flood insurance reimbursement.

Other non-core items resulted in a $158.7 million pretax charge, driven by $152.4 million of Central Europe financing and acquisition-related expenses in Corporate ($74.1 million in Other Income, $55.5 million in Interest, and $22.8 million in G&A), an $8.6 million non-cash fair value adjustment to inventory and $2.5 million of acquisition-related expenses in Central Europe, and $0.5 million of acquisition-related costs in our International business. These charges were slightly offset by a $1.5 million unrealized mark-to-market gain on commodity hedges in Corporate COGS and a $3.8 million unrealized FX gain in Central Europe.

During the quarter, MillerCoors reported a $2.3 million pension curtailment gain special item. This equates to $1.0 million at Molson Coors’ 42 percent economic ownership share.
