Consolidated Financial Results for the Third Quarter

Net sales for the third quarter of 2016 were $393.7 million compared to $407.2 million for the third quarter of 2015. The decline was primarily attributable to the Company's elimination of lower margin business in its Industrial segment, which reduced net sales by $14.0 million, and to strategic price and trade spending investments to reflect lower raw material costs, which reduced net sales by $8.8 million. Excluding the impact of Industrial segment volume, volume and mix in the Company's three core segments, including sales volume growth of 0.7%, increased net sales by $9.3 million.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2016 increased by $17.7 million to $105.4 million, or 26.8% of net sales compared to $87.7 million, or 21.5% of net sales, for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting an increase of 530 basis points of margin. Gross profit increased primarily due to positive price realization net of raw material cost movements, productivity improvements, and contributions from volume, partially offset by other increases in cost of goods sold.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were $56.1 million, or 14.2% of net sales, compared to $46.0 million, or 11.3% of net sales for the third quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to an $11.8 million increase in non-cash stock compensation including one-time charges associated with revaluation of all unvested awards based on our post-IPO valuation and accelerated vesting of certain special incentive awards. These one-time charges adversely impacted Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share and our comparison to prior year results by $9.3 million, or $0.12 per share.

Interest expense for the third quarter of 2016 was $18.7 million, a decrease of $7.2 million compared to $25.9 million for the third quarter of 2015. This decrease resulted from $11.0 million of interest savings from lower rates resulting from the refinancing of the Company's credit facilities in June 2016 and lower average borrowings, offset by $3.8 million of write-offs associated with voluntary prepayment of the term loan and other refinancing charges.

Income tax benefit was $1.8 million for the third quarter of 2016, as compared to an income tax provision of $3.0 million for the third quarter of 2015. Based on an assessment of the realizability of the Company's deferred tax assets during the second quarter, management determined that a full valuation allowance should no longer be recorded against the deferred tax assets. As a result, the Company reversed $1.7 million of the existing valuation allowance during the third quarter of 2016 representing a decrease to income tax expense during the period.

AdvancePierre's reported GAAP net income was $22.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016, compared to reported net income of $12.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted Net Income for the third quarter of 2016 was $34.8 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. Adjusted Net Income for the third quarter of 2015 was $22.2 million, or $0.33 per adjusted diluted share.

For the third quarter of 2016, Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.4% to $79.0 million from $68.4 million for the third quarter of 2015.

Segment Financial Results for the Third Quarter

Foodservice

Net sales for the Foodservice segment decreased 4.7% to $222.6 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $233.5 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting the effects of lower volume (2.2%), unfavorable mix (0.9%) and a reduction in net pricing (1.6%). The volume decline was attributable primarily to fruit cup sales in our schools sub-channel and slower restaurant traffic affecting our national chain and street customers, partially offset by growth in school sandwich and protein categories.

Operating income for the Foodservice segment increased 18.0% to $45.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $38.1 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting productivity savings and net price realization of raw material deflation, partially offset by the impact of lower volume and mix effects.

Retail

Net sales for the Retail segment increased 8.0% to $94.6 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $87.6 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting higher volume (1.6%) and favorable mix (8.0%) partially offset by a reduction in net pricing (1.6%). The increase in volume was primarily from growth in high value-added stuffed entrées that was partially offset by reduced promotional sales and rationalization of certain private label lower margin fully cooked breaded poultry SKUs.

Operating income for the Retail segment increased 236.7% to $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting favorable volume/mix, productivity savings and net price realization of raw material deflation.

Convenience

Net sales for the Convenience segment increased 11.7% to $56.5 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $50.6 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting higher volume (12.6%) and favorable mix (3.3%) partially offset by a reduction in net pricing (4.2%). Volume growth was driven by new product introductions and increased distribution to convenience stores.

Operating income for the Convenience segment increased 41.6% to $9.5 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting favorable volume/mix, productivity savings and net price realization of raw material deflation.

Industrial

Net sales for the Industrial segment decreased 43.5% to $20.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $35.4 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting lower volume (40.3%) and a reduction in net pricing (3.9%), partially offset by favorable mix (0.8%). The volume decline was primarily due to the exit of an unprofitable line of business late in the third quarter of 2015.

Operating income for the Industrial segment increased to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2016 from a loss of $0.2 million for the third quarter of 2015, reflecting exit of unprofitable business and productivity savings.

Unallocated Corporate Expenses

Unallocated Corporate Expenses increased to $26.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 from $6.1 million for the third quarter of 2015 as a result of $10.1 million of non-capitalizable transaction expenses and an $11.8 million increase in non-cash equity compensation expenses.

Outlook

For full year 2016, AdvancePierre expects net sales in the range of $1.545 billion to $1.575 billion, including volume growth of 2.0-2.5% in AdvancePierre's three core segments. The Company expects Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $290 million to $295 million and Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share in the range of $1.65 to $1.75.

AdvancePierre provides earnings guidance only on a non-GAAP basis and does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share guidance to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures because of the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations, including adjustments that could be made for deferred taxes; merger and acquisition-related expenses; non-cash stock based compensation; and other charges reflected in the Company's reconciliation of historic non-GAAP financial measures, the amounts of which, based on past experience, could be material. For additional information regarding AdvancePierre's non-GAAP financial measures, see "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

"Adjusted Net Income" (which excludes income tax credits related to reversal of valuation allowances on deferred tax assets, charges related to the refinancing of AdvancePierre's credit facilities, restructuring expenses, sponsor fees and expenses, merger and acquisition expenses, public filing expenses and other items) "Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share," "EBITDA" (net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and loss on modification and extinguishment of term loans), and "Adjusted EBITDA" (EBITDA as adjusted for restructuring expenses, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, sponsor fees and expenses, merger and acquisition expenses and public filing expenses, and other items) are "non-GAAP financial measures." A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance that excludes or includes amounts that are different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in AdvancePierre's consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, changes in stockholders' equity and cash flows.

AdvancePierre presents Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as performance measures because it believes these measures facilitate a comparison of its operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. AdvancePierre also believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful tools because they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to AdvancePierre's. However, AdvancePierre's definition of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures used by other companies.

AdvancePierre also believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating its operating performance because it provides a means to evaluate the operating performance of its business on an ongoing basis using criteria that management uses for evaluation and planning purposes. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitates internal comparisons of AdvancePierre's historical financial position and operating performance on a more consistent basis, management also uses Adjusted EBITDA in measuring AdvancePierre's performance relative to that of our competitors, in communications with its board of directors concerning its operating performance and in evaluating acquisition opportunities. In addition, targets for Adjusted EBITDA are among the measures AdvancePierre uses to evaluate management's performance for purposes of determining their compensation.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, investors should rely primarily on the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and use non-GAAP financial measures only as a supplement. In evaluating non-GAAP financial measures, investors should be aware that in the future AdvancePierre may incur expenses similar to those for which adjustments are made in calculating Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Share, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a measure of discretionary cash available to AdvancePierre to invest in the growth of its business.

Additional information regarding EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, and a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income is included in the tables below for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 and 2015, along with the components of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Also included below are reconciliations of Adjusted Net Income to net income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 and 2015.
