CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER REMARKS "In fiscal 2017, we grew adjusted EPS by 7 percent over the prior year," said Mark Smucker, Chief Executive Officer. "In the new fiscal year, we continue to execute our strategic plan for sustainable, long-term growth by capitalizing on changes in consumer preferences and the retail environment. We will fuel the momentum of our growth brands like Smucker’s? Uncrustables?, Nature’s Recipe?, and Caf? Bustelo?, while supporting our base businesses in coffee, peanut butter, pet food, and pet snacks. Accelerated cost savings and expanded capabilities are key components of our multi-dimensional strategy to deliver top and bottom line growth and increase shareholder value."

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND SEGMENT RESULTS Beginning May 1, 2016, the Company redefined certain non-GAAP measures and modified its segment profit calculation to exclude amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets. Prior year results have been modified to conform to the new presentation. Additional information is included in the Company’s Form 8-K, dated July 25, 2016.

FOURTH QUARTER CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

                                                        Three Months Ended April 30,
                                                                                          % Increase
                                                        2017             2016             (Decrease)
                                                        (Dollars and shares in millions, except per share data)
Net sales                                               $       1,783.8  $       1,807.6  (1%)
Operating income                                        $       196.7    $       246.1    (20%)
Adjusted operating income                               338.8            331.0            2%
Net income per common share - assuming dilution         $       0.96     $       1.61     (40%)
Adjusted earnings per share                             1.80             2.23             (19%)
Weighted-average shares outstanding - assuming dilution 114.9            118.8            (3%)

Net Sales Net sales decreased $23.8 million, or 1 percent, reflecting lower volume/mix. Net price realization was neutral as lower net pricing within the U.S. Retail Pet Foods segment was offset by higher net pricing on coffee and fruit spreads.

Operating Income Gross profit decreased $41.2 million, or 6 percent, driven by an unfavorable change in derivative gains and losses. Lower volume/mix also contributed to the gross profit decline. Selling, distribution, and administrative ("SD&A") expenses decreased $17.4 million, or 5 percent, primarily driven by incremental synergy realization. Operating income decreased $49.4 million, further reflecting a $57.5 million noncash impairment charge, primarily related to certain indefinite-lived trademarks within the U.S. Retail Pet Foods segment, and a $33.0 million reduction in special project costs.

On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted gross profit decreased $12.5 million, or 2 percent, with the primary difference from GAAP results being the exclusion of a $30.8 million unfavorable change in unallocated derivative gains and losses. With the decrease in SD&A expenses, adjusted operating income increased $7.8 million, or 2 percent.

Other Net interest expense decreased $0.2 million. Income taxes increased $32.3 million as a decrease in income before income taxes in the current year was more than offset by the $50.5 million noncash deferred tax benefit in the prior year.

Cash provided by operating activities was $264.2 million. This compared to $336.2 million in the prior year, which benefited from the Company’s working capital initiatives.

FULL-YEAR OUTLOOK The Company provided its full-year fiscal 2018 guidance as summarized below:

Comparable net sales increase vs prior year 1%
Adjusted earnings per share                 $7.85 - $8.05
Free cash flow                              $775 million
Capital expenditures                        $310 million
Effective tax rate                          32.5% - 33.0%

Net sales are expected to increase approximately 1 percent from fiscal 2017, primarily reflecting higher net price realization. Adjusted earnings per share is expected to range from $7.85 to $8.05, based on 113.6 million shares outstanding, reflecting the Company’s repurchase of 3.0 million shares in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. The above guidance does not include any benefit from the Company’s previously announced definitive agreement to acquire the Wesson? oil brand from Conagra Brands, Inc.

The Company announced today a $100 million increase to its cost management program, which will result in total annual cost reductions of $450 million for its synergy and cost management programs, when fully realized by fiscal 2020. Included in fiscal 2018 earnings guidance is the remaining $40 million of the $200 million synergy target associated with the pet food acquisition and approximately $100 million from the $250 million cost management program.

FOURTH QUARTER SEGMENT RESULTS Dollar amounts in the segment tables below are reported in millions.

U.S. Retail Coffee

                                   Net     Segment  Segment
                                   Sales   Profit   Profit Margin
FY17 Q4 Results                    $505.9  $149.9   29.6%
Increase (decrease) vs prior year  (1%)    (14%)    -430bps

Segment net sales decreased $6.7 million. Volume/mix reduced net sales by 5 percent driven by declines for the Folgers? brand, partially offset by gains for the Caf? Bustelo? and Dunkin’ Donuts? brands. The lower volume/mix was mostly offset by higher net price realization. Segment profit decreased $23.9 million primarily due to the impact of volume/mix. In addition, increased marketing expense and the net impact of higher commodity costs and pricing also contributed to the segment profit decline.

U.S. Retail Consumer Foods

                                   Net     Segment  Segment
                                   Sales   Profit   Profit Margin
FY17 Q4 Results                    $473.8  $108.7   22.9%
Increase (decrease) vs prior year  -       19%      350bps

Segment net sales increased $0.1 million. Higher net price realization, primarily driven by the Smucker’s? and Jif? brands, contributed 2 percentage points of growth. This was offset by lower volume/mix, primarily attributed to the Crisco? and truRoots? brands. Segment profit increased $17.0 million, reflecting higher net pricing and lower manufacturing overhead costs, as well as incremental synergy realization. These factors were partially offset by an increase in marketing expense.

U.S. Retail Pet Foods

                                   Net     Segment  Segment
                                   Sales   Profit   Profit Margin
FY17 Q4 Results                    $534.5  $118.0   22.1%
Increase (decrease) vs prior year  (5%)    (15%)    -240bps

Segment net sales decreased $28.4 million, primarily due to lower net price realization which reduced net sales by 4 percent. Volume/mix reduced net sales by 1 percent as gains for the Nature’s Recipe? and Milk-Bone? brands were more than offset by declines across the rest of the portfolio, most notably 9Lives? and Meow Mix? cat food. Segment profit decreased $20.1 million as the decline in net sales and increased distribution expense were partially offset by lower input costs.

International and Foodservice

                                   Net     Segment  Segment
                                   Sales   Profit   Profit Margin
FY17 Q4 Results                    $269.6  $48.4    18.0%
Increase (decrease) vs prior year  4%      26%      310bps

Segment net sales increased $11.2 million. Volume/mix contributed 5 percentage points of growth to net sales. This was slightly offset by lower net price realization and a $1.0 million impact from foreign currency exchange. Segment profit increased $10.0 million primarily due to favorable volume/mix and a $3.8 million pre-tax gain related to the sale during the fourth quarter of the Company’s minority interest in Guilin Seamild Biologic Technology Development Co., Ltd., a manufacturer and marketer of oats products in China.

Non-GAAP Measures The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including: net sales excluding divestiture and foreign currency exchange; adjusted gross profit, operating income, income, and earnings per share; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges related to intangible assets ("EBITDA (as adjusted)"); and free cash flow, as key measures for purposes of evaluating performance internally. The Company believes that these measures provide useful information to investors because they are the measures used to evaluate performance on a comparable year-over-year basis. Non-GAAP profit measures exclude certain items affecting comparability which include merger and integration and restructuring costs ("special project costs") and unallocated gains and losses on commodity and foreign currency exchange derivatives ("unallocated derivative gains and losses"). The special project costs relate to specific merger and integration and restructuring projects, and the unallocated derivative gains and losses reflect the changes in fair value of the Company’s commodity and foreign currency exchange contracts. Beginning May 1, 2016, the Company redefined the non-GAAP measures to also exclude amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets, and has modified prior year results to conform to the new definition. The Company believes that excluding amortization expense and impairment charges related to intangible assets in its non-GAAP measures is more reflective of the Company’s operating performance and the way in which the Company manages its business, as amortization and impairment charges are noncash expenses and can be significantly affected by the timing and size of acquisitions. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Rather, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures supplements other metrics used by management to internally evaluate its businesses and facilitates the comparison of past and present operations and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies and may exclude certain nondiscretionary expenses and cash payments. A reconciliation of certain non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure for the current and prior year periods is included in the "Unaudited Non-GAAP Financial Measures" tables. The Company has also provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures for its fiscal 2018 outlook. As the amount of unallocated derivative gains and losses varies depending on market conditions and levels of derivative transactions with respect to a particular fiscal year, it is not determinable on a forward-looking basis and no guidance has been provided.
