B&G Foods Reports Strong Net Sales And Earnings Growth For Fourth Quarter And Full-Year 2012

Stocks in this article: BGS

Net interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarter of 2011 remained consistent at $11.8 million.

The Company’s reported net income under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) was $9.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to reported net income of $12.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. The Company’s adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $17.0 million, or $0.32 per adjusted diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to adjusted net income of $14.7 million, or $0.30 per adjusted diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA, which for the fourth quarter of 2012 excludes the impact of transaction costs related to the New York Style and Old London acquisition and for the fourth quarter of 2011 excludes the impact of transaction costs related to the Culver Specialty Brands acquisition, increased 20.0% to $44.0 million from $36.7 million.

Financial Results for Full-Year 2012

Net sales for fiscal 2012 increased 16.5% to $633.8 million from $543.9 million for fiscal 2011. Net sales of the Culver Specialty Brands contributed $81.0 million and net sales of New York Style and Old London contributed $8.4 million to the Company’s overall increase. Net sales for the base business increased $0.5 million, with a sales price increase of $13.1 million offset by a $12.6 million unit volume decline.

Gross profit for fiscal 2012 increased 25.6% to $223.3 million from $177.8 million in fiscal 2011. Gross profit expressed as a percentage of net sales increased 2.5 percentage points to 35.2% in fiscal 2012 from 32.7% in fiscal 2011, attributable to a sales mix shift to higher margin products (primarily due to the Culver Specialty Brands acquisition) and pricing gains of $13.1 million, partially offset by commodity and packaging cost increases. Operating income increased 31.3% to $149.0 million in fiscal 2012 from $113.5 million in fiscal 2011.
