RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Performance Food Group Company (“PFG” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PFGC) today announced its third-quarter and first-nine months fiscal 2019 business results.

“Our financial results were in line with our expectations and we believe we are on-track to achieve our fiscal year outlook,” said George Holm, PFG’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our independent case growth sequentially improved from the second quarter to the third quarter and grew over 5% year-over-year. Vistar continued to deliver double-digit EBITDA growth. And we also closed on the Eby-Brown transaction late last month and are excited for them to join the PFG family of companies.”

 
1 This earnings release includes several metrics, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share and Free Cash Flow 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 5.3% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period, with underlying organic growth of 3.4%. Total case volume included a 5.4% increase in independent cases, growth in Performance Brands cases and broad-based growth across Vistar’s sales channels.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 grew 7.8% to $4.7 billion compared to the prior year period. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to growth in Vistar, most notably in the vending, office coffee service and retail channels, and case growth in Foodservice, specifically in the independent restaurant channel. The increase in net sales also reflects an increase in selling price per case as a result of inflation and mix. Overall food cost inflation was approximately 2%.

Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 grew 8.2% to $604.7 million compared to the prior year period. The strong gross profit increase was led by case growth and from selling an improved mix of customer channels and products, specifically in Vistar’s channels and the independent restaurant channel. Gross profit margin as a percentage of net sales was up 10 basis points over the prior year period to 12.9%.

Operating expenses rose 9.4% to $545.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the increase in case volume and the resulting impact on variable operational and selling expenses, as well as increases in personnel and insurance expenses.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 declined 4.2% year-over-year to $32.3 million. The $0.9 million decrease in operating profit was a result of the increase in operating expenses discussed above. The increase in interest expense was primarily the result of an increase in the average interest rate during the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. The effective tax rate in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was approximately 26.1% versus 24.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2018. The increase in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the excess tax benefits associated with stock options exercised in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.

EBITDA increased 8.5% to $99.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. For the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA rose 11.0% to $106.1 million compared to the prior year period.

Diluted EPS declined 3.1% to $0.31 per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 over the prior year period. Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 2.9% to $0.35 per share in the third quarter over the prior year period.

Total case volume increased 4.8% in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period, with underlying organic growth of 3.0%.

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was $13.8 billion, an increase of 6.3% versus the comparable prior year period. The increase in net sales was primarily attributable to sales growth in Vistar, particularly in the theater, retail, and vending channels, case growth in Foodservice, particularly in the independent restaurant channel, and recent acquisitions.

Gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 increased 7.8% to $1.8 billion compared to the prior year period. The gross profit increase was led by case growth and an improved sales mix of customer channels and products, specifically in Vistar’s channels and the independent restaurant channel. Gross margin as a percentage of net sales was up 20 basis points over the prior year period to 13.1%.

Operating expenses increased 7.2% to $1.6 billion in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily due to case volume growth and the resulting impact on variable operational and selling expenses as well as the expense associated with second half of fiscal 2018 investments in sales, warehouse and delivery personnel within the Foodservice segment, and acquisition integration costs within Vistar.

Operating profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 was up 14.5% to $182.8 million driven by strong top-line and gross profit growth and mix of business, specifically within the independent restaurant channel.

Net income declined 22.9% to $103.6 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. The significant decrease in net income was a result of the $50.8 million increase in income tax expense. The increase in income tax expense was primarily a result of the prior year impact of the Act and the prior year excess tax benefit associated with the performance vesting of certain stock-based compensation awards.

EBITDA increased 15.6% to $295.6 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period. For the first nine months of fiscal 2019 Adjusted EBITDA increased 9.3% to $318.5 million compared to the prior year period.

Diluted EPS decreased 23.3% to $0.99 per share in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period due primarily to the increase in income tax expense. Adjusted Diluted EPS increased 13.9% to $1.15 per share in the first nine months of fiscal 2019 over the prior year period.

In the first nine months of fiscal 2019, PFG generated $260.5 million in cash flow from operating activities, an increase of $30.9 million versus the prior year period. The improvement in cash flow from operating activities was largely driven by lower income taxes paid. For the first nine months of fiscal 2019, PFG invested $93.1 million in capital expenditures, an increase of $19.9 million versus the prior year period. In the first nine months of fiscal 2019, PFG delivered free cash flow of $167.4 million1, an increase of approximately $11.0 million versus the prior year period.

On November 13, 2018, the Board of Directors of the Company authorized a share repurchase program for up to $250 million of the Company’s outstanding common stock. During the three months ended March 30, 2019, the Company repurchased 123,528 shares of common stock for a total of $4.1 million or average cost of $33.40 per share. As of March 30, 2019, approximately $240.7 million remained available for additional share repurchases.

On April 29, 2019, PFG completed its acquisition of Eby-Brown Company LLC (“Eby-Brown”). PFG expects that the acquisition will allow its Vistar segment to strategically expand in the fast-growing convenience store channel where there is significant overlap with suppliers and product categories, as well as opportunities to use PFG brands for unique solutions in the prepared and made-to-order foodservice market. Vistar and Eby-Brown combined will service over 75,000 locations making Vistar No. 1 in locations served and No. 2 in overall non-tobacco convenience volume.

Third-Quarter Fiscal 2019 Segment Results

Third-quarter net sales for Foodservice increased 7.5% to $3.8 billion compared to the prior year period. Net sales growth was driven by an increase in cases sold, including independent case growth of 5.4% and solid independent customer demand for Performance Brands. This increase in net sales was also attributable to an increase in selling price per case as a result of inflation. For the third quarter of fiscal 2019, independent sales as a percentage of total segment sales was 32.2%.

Third-quarter EBITDA for Foodservice increased 6.4% to $99.4 million compared to the prior year period. Gross profit increased 6.6% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period as a result of an increase in cases sold, as well as an increase in gross profit per case. The increase in gross profit per case was driven by a favorable shift in the mix of cases sold, including more Performance Brands products sold to our independent customers.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2019, net sales for Vistar increased 8.8% to $892.1 million compared to the prior year period. This increase was driven by strong case sales growth in the segment’s vending and retail channels.

Third-quarter EBITDA for Vistar increased 13.8% to $37.0 million versus the prior year period. Gross profit dollar growth of 14.0% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 compared to the prior year period was fueled by an increase in the number of cases sold. Operating expense dollar growth of 14.1% for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 was primarily the result of higher variable operating costs associated with higher case volume.

For fiscal 2019, PFG tighten its Adjusted EBITDA growth outlook to be in a range of 8% to 10% over its fiscal 2018 Adjusted EBITDA of $426.71 million. The previous fiscal 2019 Adjusted EBITDA growth range was 7% to 10%.

PFG tightens is fiscal 2019 Adjusted Diluted EPS growth outlook to be in a range of 12% to 16% over its fiscal 2018 Adjusted Diluted EPS of $1.541. The previous fiscal 2019 Adjusted Diluted EPS growth range was 10% to 16%.

PFG’s Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook 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 and its reported Diluted EPS, 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. Please see the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of this release for a discussion of certain risks to PFG’s outlook.

As previously announced, a conference call with the investment community and news media will be webcast on May 8, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Access to the webcast is available at www.pfgc.com

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 EPS. 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 EPS and other non-GAAP financial measures have limitations that should be considered before using these measures to evaluate PFG’s liquidity or financial performance. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted EPS, 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, 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 EPS, 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 EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Diluted EPS 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

In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company changed its operating segments to reflect the manner in which the business is managed. Based on changes to the Company’s organization structure and how the Company’s management reviews operating results and makes decisions about resource allocation, the Company now has two reportable segments: Foodservice and Vistar. Additionally, consistent with how management assesses performance of the segments, certain administrative costs and corporate allocations, previously reported at the segment level, are now included within Corporate & All Other, as opposed to the Foodservice segment. Management evaluates the performance of these segments based on their respective sales growth and EBITDA.

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.

The presentation and amounts for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2018 have been adjusted to reflect the segment changes described above. The following tables set forth net sales and EBITDA by segment for the periods indicated (dollars in millions):
