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

Stocks in this article: TAP

Net sales per hectoliter increased 1 percent in local currency. Owned brand net sales per hectoliter were in line with last year as a result of higher on-premise pricing and favorable mix, offset by lower pricing in the off-premise.

COGS per hectoliter increased nearly 5 percent in local currency, driven by input inflation, higher pension expense, cycling a reduction in employee incentive compensation last year and fixed-cost deleverage from lower volumes, partly offset by results of cost savings initiatives.

MG&A expenses increased 5 percent in local currency, due to cycling a reduction in employee incentive compensation last year, partly offset by cost savings.

International Business

The International segment posted an underlying pretax loss of $7.7 million in the third quarter, up from a $7.2 million loss a year ago due to incremental brand investments, partially offset by year-over-year volume growth from Europe and Latin America markets and including Central Europe export results this year. The Central Europe export business contributed underlying pretax income of $2.8 million in the third quarter.

International STRs more than doubled due to the addition of Central Europe export. Excluding the addition of Central Europe export, STRs increased nearly 14 percent, driven by Carling growth in our Europe export markets, Coors Light growth in Latin America, Zima and Modelo brands in Japan, and a full quarter of sales in India this year. Net sales revenue increased 38.3 percent on higher volumes with 21.5 percent attributable to the inclusion of Central Europe export. COGS per hectoliter decreased 5.8 percent driven by geographic mix, partially offset by the inclusion of Central Europe export. Excluding the addition of Central Europe export, COGS per hectoliter decreased 16.9 percent.

International MG&A expense increased 30.2 percent, driven by incremental brand investments in priority markets.


Underlying Corporate expenses totaled $67.2 million pretax for the third quarter. This increase of $16.3 million was due to $22.4 million of interest expense related to financing our Central Europe acquisition this year.
