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

Net interest expense for fiscal 2012 increased $11.0 million or 30.0% to $47.7 million from $36.7 million in fiscal 2011 attributable to an increase in indebtedness to finance the Culver Specialty Brands acquisition, and an additional $2.8 million of amortization of deferred debt financing costs and bond discount relating to the acquisition financing.

The Company’s reported net income under U.S. GAAP was $59.3 million, or $1.20 per diluted share, for fiscal 2012, as compared to reported net income of $50.2 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for fiscal 2011. The Company’s adjusted net income for fiscal 2012 was $66.7 million, and adjusted diluted earnings per share was $1.35, as compared to adjusted net income of $53.1 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.09 for fiscal 2011.

Adjusted EBITDA, which for fiscal 2012 excludes the impact of transaction costs related to the New York Style and Old London acquisition and for fiscal 2011 excludes the impact of transaction costs related to the Culver Specialty Brands acquisition, increased 28.9% to $169.0 million from $131.1 million.

Guidance

Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2013 is expected to be approximately $178.0 million to $182.0 million. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2013 are expected to be approximately $13.0 million. Cash interest expense for fiscal 2013 is expected to be approximately $35.0 million.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Items Affecting Comparability

“Adjusted net income,” “adjusted diluted earnings per share,” “EBITDA” (net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and loss on extinguishment of debt) and “adjusted EBITDA” (EBITDA as adjusted for acquisition-related transaction costs, which include outside fees and expenses and restructuring and consolidation costs of acquisitions incurred in fiscal 2012 and 2011) are “non-GAAP financial measures.” A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in B&G Foods’ consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
