This earnings release includes several metrics, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share that are not calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”). Please see Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures at the end of this release for the definitions of such non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

 

Total case volume increased 3.3% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year period, with underlying organic growth of 2.9%. Total case volume included a 5.3% increase in independent cases, growth in Performance Brands cases and broad-based growth across Vistar’s sales channels, partially offset by declines in the casual dining segment within PFG Customized.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 grew 3.7% to $4.6 billion versus the comparable prior year period. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to growth in Vistar, most notably in the theater and retail channels, case growth in Performance Foodservice (“PFS”), specifically in the independent restaurant channel, and recent acquisitions. The increase in net sales was also attributable to an increase in selling price per case as a result of inflation and mix. Overall food cost inflation was approximately 1.7% in the fourth quarter.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 grew 6.4% compared to the prior year period, to $611.8 million. The strong gross profit increase was led by case growth and from selling an improved mix of customer channels and products, specifically to the independent restaurant channel. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales was up 30 basis points over the prior year period to 13.3%.

Operating expenses rose by 5.0% to $518.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to acquired case volume and the resulting impact on variable operational expenses, higher fuel prices, acquisition integration costs within Vistar, as well as additional investments in sales, warehouse and delivery personnel within PFS.

Operating profit was up 15.2% driven by a strong gross profit increase of 6.4%. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 grew 59.4% year-over-year to $64.4 million. The growth was primarily a result of an increase in operating profit and a $12.6 million decrease in income tax expense, partially offset by interest and other expenses. The decrease in income tax expense was primarily a result of the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”). The effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was 17.9% compared to 39.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The decrease in the tax rate was due to a lower statutory tax rate, the impact of the rate differential for temporary differences, and the excess tax benefits associated with stock options exercised in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.

EBITDA increased 11.6% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year period, to $128.3 million. For the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA rose 3.0% to $135.4 million compared to the prior year period.

Diluted EPS grew 56.4% to $0.61 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 over the prior year period. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 10.4% to $0.53 per share in the fourth quarter over the prior year period.

Total case volume increased 3.0%, with underlying organic growth of 1.7%. Total case volume included a 6.1% increase in independent cases, growth in Performance Brands cases and broad-based growth in Vistar’s sales channels, partially offset by declines in the casual dining segment within PFG Customized.

Net sales for fiscal 2018 increased 5.1% to $17.6 billion. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to sales growth in Vistar, particularly in the theater and retail channels, case growth in PFS, specifically in the independent channel, and recent acquisitions.

Gross profit for fiscal 2018 increased 7.9% compared to the prior year, to $2.3 billion. The increase in gross profit for fiscal 2018 was the result of case growth and an improved sales mix of customer channels and products, specifically to the independent restaurant channel. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales was up 30 basis points over the prior year period to 13.0%.

Operating expenses increased 6.6% for fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year, to $2.0 billion. The increase was primarily due to case volume growth and the resulting impact on variable operational expenses, one-time costs primarily related to the exit of PFG’s private-equity shareholders, higher fuel prices, and acquisition integration costs within Vistar, partially offset by decreases in advisory fees and professional, legal, and consulting expenses.

Operating profit was up 20.1% to $253.5 million driven by strong top-line and gross profit growth specifically within the independent restaurant channel. Net income increased 106.3% to $198.7 million for fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year period. The significant increase in net income was a result of strong operating profit performance combined with the $66.5 million decrease in income tax expense. The decrease in income tax expense was primarily driven by non-cash gains and other cash benefits as a result of the Act and the excess tax benefit of $15.4 million associated with the performance vesting of certain stock-based compensation awards. The effective tax rate in fiscal 2018 was -2.6% compared to 39.0% in fiscal 2017.

For fiscal 2018, EBITDA increased 13.4% compared to the prior year, to $384.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $426.7 million, or a 9.2% increase for fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year.

Diluted EPS grew 104.3% for fiscal 2018 over the prior year, to $1.90. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 24.2% for fiscal 2018 over the prior year, to $1.54.

For fiscal 2018, PFG generated $367.0 million in cash flow from operating activities, an increase of $165.3 million versus the prior year period. The improvement in cash flow from operating activities was largely driven by higher operating income, lower taxes paid and improvements in working capital. For fiscal 2018, PFG invested $140.1 million in capital expenditures, in line with capital spending versus prior year. PFG delivered free cash flow of $226.91 million, an increase of approximately $165.4 million.

Fourth-Quarter and Fiscal 2018 Segment Results

Fourth-quarter net sales for PFS increased 4.8% to $2.7 billion and for fiscal 2018 increased 6.2% to $10.4 billion compared to the prior year periods. Net sales growth was driven by an increase in cases sold, including independent case growth and solid independent customer demand for Performance Brands. For fiscal 2018, independent sales as a percentage of total segment sales was up 100 basis points to 45.2%.

Fourth-quarter EBITDA for PFS decreased 5.8% to $99.1 million compared to the prior year period and grew 3.3% to $330.6 million for fiscal 2018. Gross profit increased 4.0% in the fourth quarter and 6.0% in fiscal 2018, compared to the prior year periods, as a result of an increase in cases sold, as well as an increase in the gross profit per case. The increase in gross profit per case was driven by a favorable shift in the mix of cases sold to independent customers and increased sales of Performance Brands. The fourth quarter EBITDA was impacted by higher operating expenses driven largely by the strategic investments in sales, warehouse and delivery personnel.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, net sales for Vistar increased 14.4% to $885.1 million and for fiscal 2018 net sales grew 11.2% to $3.3 billion compared to the prior year periods. This increase was driven by strong case sales growth in the segment’s theater, vending and retail channels, and as a result of recent acquisitions.

Fourth quarter EBITDA for Vistar increased 18.6%, to $40.8 million, versus the prior year period, and 13.1% to $133.1 million in fiscal 2018 versus the prior year. Gross profit dollar growth of 18.4% for fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year period, was fueled by an increase in the number of cases sold and by acquisitions. Operating expense dollar growth of 20.1% for fiscal 2018 was primarily the result of higher variable operating costs associated with higher case volume and integration costs related to recent acquisitions.

Net sales for PFG Customized decreased 7.1% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 to $913.9 million and decreased 4.2% to $3.7 billion for fiscal 2018 compared to the prior year periods. These decreases were primarily a result of the closing of a facility in Georgia in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

PFG Customized EBITDA increased 86.4% to $8.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 and increased 16.6% to $29.5 million for fiscal 2018. These increases are a result of strong operating expense control and the favorable impact of closing the Georgia facility.

For fiscal 2019, PFG expects Adjusted EBITDA growth to be in a range of 7% to 10% over its fiscal 2018 Adjusted EBITDA of $426.7 million. The company expects that the 7% to 10% Adjusted EBITDA growth for fiscal 2019 will reflect first half growth in the low-to-mid single-digit range. Second half Adjusted EBITDA growth is expected to be in the high single- and low double-digit range. Fiscal 2019 first-half growth is expected to reflect strategic investments in sales, warehouse and delivery associates.

PFG expects fiscal 2019 Adjusted Diluted EPS to grow in a range of 10% to 16% to $1.72 to $1.82 over its fiscal 2018 Adjusted Diluted EPS of $1.54.

This outlook is based on the following annual assumptions:

  • Organic case growth in a range of 3% to 5%;
  • Interest expense in the range of approximately $60 million to $70 million;
  • An effective tax rate on operations of approximately 27%; and
  • Capital expenditures between $170 million and $190 million, with depreciation and amortization between $145 million to $155 million. The fiscal 2019 capital expenditures estimate is higher than fiscal 2018 because of our ongoing investment to drive growth and the timing of certain projects.

PFG’s Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook and full-year forecast for its effective tax rate on operations exclude the impact of certain income and expense items that management believes are not part of underlying operations. These items may include, but are not limited to, loss on early extinguishment of debt, restructuring charges, certain tax items, and charges associated with non-recurring professional and legal fees associated with acquisitions. PFG’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis the impact of these income and expense items on its reported Net income, its reported Diluted EPS, and its reported effective tax rate because these items, which could be significant, are difficult to predict and may be highly variable. As a result, PFG does not provide a reconciliation to the closest corresponding GAAP financial measure for its Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook or its effective tax rate on operations forecast. Please see the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of this release for a discussion of certain risks to PFG’s outlook.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release and the accompanying financial statement tables include several financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share. Such measures are not recognized terms under GAAP, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and are not indicative of net income as determined under GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, and other non-GAAP financial measures have limitations that should be considered before using these measures to evaluate the PFG’s liquidity or financial performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because of varying methods of calculation.

Management measures operating performance based on PFG’s EBITDA, defined as net income before interest expense, interest income, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization.

PFG believes that the presentation of EBITDA enhances an investor’s understanding of PFG’s performance. PFG believes this measure is a useful metric to assess PFG’s operating performance from period to period by excluding certain items that PFG believes are not representative of PFG’s core business. PFG also uses this measure to evaluate the performance of its segments and for business planning purposes.

In addition, management uses Adjusted EBITDA, defined as net income before interest expense, interest income, income and franchise taxes, and depreciation and amortization, further adjusted to exclude certain items we do not consider part of our core operating results. Such adjustments include certain unusual, non-cash, non-recurring, cost reduction, and other adjustment items permitted in calculating covenant compliance under the PFG’s credit agreement and indenture (other than certain pro forma adjustments permitted under our credit agreement and indenture relating to the Adjusted EBITDA contribution of acquired entities or businesses prior to the acquisition date). Under PFG’s credit agreement and indenture, the PFG’s ability to engage in certain activities such as incurring certain additional indebtedness, making certain investments, and making restricted payments is tied to ratios based on Adjusted EBITDA (as defined in the credit agreement and indenture).

Management also uses Free Cash Flow, which is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures (purchases of property, plant and equipment). PFG also believes that the presentation of Free Cash Flow enhances an investor’s understanding of PFG’s ability to make strategic investments and manage debt levels.

Management also uses Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, which is calculated by adjusting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure by excluding the same items excluded in PFG’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, as well as certain one-time income tax items, to the extent that each such item was included in the applicable GAAP financial measure.

PFG believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because these metrics provide insight into underlying business trends and year-over-year results and are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in PFG’s industry.

The following tables include a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the applicable most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.

Segment Results

We have three reportable segments as described above—Performance Foodservice, PFG Customized, and Vistar. Management evaluates the performance of these segments based on their respective sales growth and EBITDA. For PFG Customized, EBITDA includes certain allocated corporate expenses that are included in operating expenses. The allocated corporate expenses are determined based on a percentage of total sales. This percentage is reviewed on a periodic basis to ensure that the allocation reflects a reasonable rate of corporate expenses based on their use of corporate services.

Corporate & All Other is comprised of corporate overhead and certain operations that are not considered separate reportable segments based on their size. This includes the operations of our internal logistics unit responsible for managing and allocating inbound logistics revenue and expense, as well as the operations of certain recent acquisitions.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, PFG reorganized its information technology department, and expenses associated with business application teams are now included in the segment results. The EBITDA for Performance Foodservice, Vistar and Corporate & All Other for the three months and fiscal year ended July 1, 2017 has been adjusted to reflect this change.

The following tables set forth net sales and EBITDA by segment for the periods indicated (dollars in millions):
