PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 8, 2017-- United Natural Foods, Inc. (Nasdaq: UNFI) (the “Company” or “UNFI”) today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 ended January 28, 2017. The Company is also announcing a restructuring program in conjunction with various cost saving and efficiency initiatives, including the anticipated opening of a shared services center.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2017 Highlights

  • Net sales increased 11.6% to $2.29 billion compared to the same period last fiscal year
  • Gross margin increased 56 basis points to 15.09% compared to the same period last fiscal year
  • Net income increased 12.3% to $25.5 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to the same period last fiscal year
  • EBITDA increased 16.7% to $67.5 million compared to the same period last fiscal year
  • Cash flow from operations was $104.2 million and capital expenditures were $13.5 million, resulting in free cash flow of $90.7 million
  • Deflation was approximately 0.30% compared to inflation of approximately 2.15% in the same period last fiscal year

“I am proud of our second quarter performance and the progress we have made against our strategic initiatives, despite industry challenges, such as deflation and a difficult retail environment,” said Steven L. Spinner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of UNFI. “In light of these challenges, our team remains focused on driving greater efficiencies throughout our internal operations and enhancing the customer experience.”

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 11.6%, or $237.8 million, to $2.29 billion from $2.05 billion in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Net sales were positively impacted by the acquisitions of Haddon House Food Products, Inc., Global Organic/Specialty Source, Inc., Nor-Cal Produce, Inc. and Gourmet Guru, Inc. Due to varying levels of assimilation of these acquisitions, the total financial impact is no longer fully separable. Net sales were impacted by deflation of approximately 0.30% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017, compared with inflation of approximately 2.15% in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Gross margin for the quarter came in at 15.09%, a 56 basis point increase over last year’s second quarter. The increase was primarily driven by acquisitions and margin improvement initiatives, partially offset by competitive pricing pressure.

Total operating expenses increased $42.9 million to $298.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $255.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Total operating expenses were 13.07% of net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, an increase of 58 basis points compared to the same period last fiscal year. The increase was primarily attributable to the acquired businesses, which have higher costs to serve their customers. Additionally, there was an increase in stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense, which was partially offset by costs incurred in the second quarter of last year that did not recur this year. Costs incurred in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 included $2.0 million of severance and other transition costs and $1.0 million of acquisition related costs.

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 increased $2.8 million, or 12.3%, to $25.5 million, from $22.7 million, for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 increased 11.5% to $0.50 per diluted share compared to $0.45 per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Net income as a percentage of net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was 1.11%, which is flat compared to the same period last year. Operating income increased $4.6 million, or 11.0%, to $46.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 compared to $41.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $67.5 million, an increase of 16.7% from $57.8 million in the same period last year. EBITDA as a percentage of net sales was 2.95% in the second quarter of fiscal 2017, up 13 basis points from 2.82% for the same period last year.

Cash flow from operations was $104.2 million and capital expenditures were $13.5 million, resulting in free cash flow of $90.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Cash flow from operations was $119.1 million and capital expenditures were $12.9 million, resulting in free cash flow of $106.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.

Fiscal 2017 Year to Date Summary

Net sales for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 totaled $4.56 billion, a 10.7% increase over the comparable prior fiscal year period. Excluding the year-over-year impact of the previously announced termination of a customer distribution contract, adjusted net sales for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 increased 12.2% compared to the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. Net sales were positively impacted by the acquisitions of Haddon House Food Products, Inc., Global Organic/Specialty Source, Inc., Nor-Cal Produce, Inc. and Gourmet Guru, Inc.

Gross margin for the first half of fiscal 2017 increased 38 basis points to 15.21% compared to 14.83% for the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. The increase was due to the favorable impact of acquisitions. Despite the year-over-year improvement, gross margin for the first half of fiscal 2017 faced headwinds from moderated supplier promotional activity and competitive pricing pressure.

Total operating expenses for the first half of fiscal 2017 increased $78.5 million to $594.4 million from $515.8 million for the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. At 13.02% of net sales, total operating expenses for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 were 51 basis points higher than the comparable prior fiscal year period. The increase was primarily attributable to the acquired businesses, which have higher costs to serve their customers. Additionally, the increase was driven by higher stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense, which was partially offset by costs incurred in the first half of fiscal 2016 that did not recur in fiscal 2017. Costs incurred in the first half of fiscal 2016 included $4.8 million of severance and other transition costs, $1.8 million of bad debt expense related to outstanding receivables for a customer who declared bankruptcy in the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and $1.0 million of acquisition costs.

Net income for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 increased $1.9 million, or 3.6%, to $54.7 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, from $52.8 million, or $1.05 per diluted share for the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. Net income as a percentage of net sales for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 was 1.20%, a decrease of 8 basis points compared to the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. Operating income for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017 increased $4.0 million to $99.6 million from $95.6 million for the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016. EBITDA for the first half of fiscal 2017 was $142.1 million, an increase of 10.6% from $128.5 million in the same period last year. EBITDA as a percentage of net sales was 3.11% in the first half of fiscal 2017, which was flat compared to the first half of fiscal 2016.

Cash flow from operations was $96.9 million and capital expenditures were $22.7 million, resulting in free cash flow of $74.2 million for the 26-week period ended January 28, 2017. Cash flow from operations was $124.6 million and capital expenditures were $20.5 million, resulting in free cash flow of $104.1 million for the 26-week period ended January 30, 2016.

Restructuring Announcement

In the second half of fiscal 2017, UNFI expects to incur restructuring charges of between $3.5 million and $4.0 million, before taxes, primarily related to expenses for severance and other employee separation costs. In connection with the initiative, the Company estimates the elimination or relocation of approximately 265 positions under a plan that will be largely completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2017, with certain shared service related transitions extending into the second quarter of fiscal 2018. The actions are expected to result in overall expense reductions in the coming year and allow the Company to operate more efficiently and effectively.

Fiscal 2017 Guidance

Based on UNFI’s performance to date, the current outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2017 and the restructuring program announced today, the Company is revising its guidance for fiscal 2017 that was provided on December 7, 2016. For the fiscal year ending July 29, 2017, the Company estimates net sales in the range of approximately $9.38 billion to $9.46 billion, an increase of approximately 10.7% to 11.7% over fiscal 2016. The Company estimates GAAP earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2017 in the range of $2.49 to $2.54 compared to fiscal 2016 GAAP earnings per diluted share of $2.50. Adjusting for costs related to the aforementioned restructuring plan of approximately $3.5 million to $4.0 million, before taxes, adjusted earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2017 is estimated to be in the range of approximately $2.53 to $2.58, compared to fiscal 2016 adjusted earnings per diluted share of $2.59. Fiscal 2016 earnings per diluted share was adjusted for $4.8 million of severance and other transition costs related to the previously disclosed restructuring plans, $0.8 million of restructuring and impairment costs related to the Company’s retail business and approximately $2.2 million of acquisition related costs. Capital expenditures for fiscal 2017 are expected to be approximately 0.5% to 0.6% of estimated fiscal 2017 net sales. Finally, the Company expects its fiscal 2017 tax rate to be in the range of 39.7% to 40.1%. The Company’s guidance is based on current plans and expectations and is subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, including those set forth under the Company’s safe harbor statement of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 below.

Adjusted net sales, free cash flow, EBITDA, EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, and adjusted earnings per diluted share are non-GAAP financial measures. Please refer to the tables in this press release for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: Statements in this press release regarding the Company’s business that are not historical facts are “forward-looking statements” that involve risks and uncertainties and are based on current expectations and management estimates; actual results may differ materially. The risks and uncertainties which could impact these statements are described in the Company’s filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including its annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 28, 2016 and its quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on December 8, 2016 and other filings the Company makes with the SEC, and include, but are not limited to, the ability of the Company to retain customers of Haddon House Food Products, Inc. (“Haddon”), Nor-Cal Produce, Inc. (“Nor-Cal”), Global Organic/Specialty Source, Inc. (“Global Organic”) and Gourmet Guru, Inc. (“Gourmet Guru”) and their affiliated entities that we purchased on terms similar to those in place prior to the Company’s acquisition of these businesses; the Company’s dependence on principal customers; the Company’s sensitivity to general economic conditions, including the current economic environment; changes in disposable income levels and consumer spending trends; the Company’s ability to reduce its expenses in amounts sufficient to offset its increased focus on sales to conventional supermarkets and the shift in the Company’s product mix as a result of its acquisition of Tony’s Fine Foods and the resulting lower gross margins on those sales; the Company’s reliance on the continued growth in sales of natural and organic foods and non-food products in comparison to conventional products; increased competition in the Company’s industry as a result of increased distribution of natural, organic and specialty products by conventional grocery distributors and direct distribution of those products by large retailers; the Company’s ability to timely and successfully deploy its warehouse management system throughout its distribution centers and its transportation management system across the Company; the addition or loss of significant customers; volatility in fuel costs; volatility in foreign exchange rates; the Company’s sensitivity to inflationary and deflationary pressures; the relatively low margins and economic sensitivity of the Company’s business; the potential for disruptions in the Company’s supply chain by circumstances beyond its control; the risk of interruption of supplies due to lack of long-term contracts, severe weather, work stoppages or otherwise; consumer demand for natural and organic products outpacing suppliers’ ability to produce those products; moderated supplier promotional activity, including decreased forward buying opportunities; union-organizing activities that could cause labor relations difficulties and increased costs; the ability to identify and successfully complete acquisitions of other natural, organic and specialty food and non-food products distributors; management’s allocation of capital and the timing of capital expenditures; the Company’s ability to successfully integrate and deploy its operational initiatives to achieve synergies from the acquisitions of Tony’s Fine Foods, Global Organic, Nor-Cal, Haddon House, and Gourmet Guru; the Company’s ability to realize the anticipated benefit from its restructuring program in conjunction with various efficiency initiatives, including acquisition integration, severance and transition related costs, as well as the anticipated opening of the Company’s shared services center, all within the cost estimates currently contemplated; and the potential for business disruptions in connection with the anticipated opening of the Company’s shared services center. Any forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and, as such, speak only as of the date made. The Company is not undertaking to update any information in the foregoing reports until the effective date of its future reports required by applicable laws. Any estimates of future results of operations are based on a number of assumptions, many of which are outside the Company’s control and should not be construed in any manner as a guarantee that such results will in fact occur. These estimates are subject to change and could differ materially from final reported results. The Company may from time to time update these publicly announced estimates, but it is not obligated to do so.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures: To supplement the financial information presented on a generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) basis, the Company has included in this press release non-GAAP financial measures for adjusted net sales, free cash flow, EBITDA, EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, and adjusted earnings per diluted share. The non-GAAP measure for adjusted net sales excludes the impact of net sales related to the termination of our distribution agreement with a customer that the Company announced in July 2015. Free cash flow is cash flows from operating activities excluding capital expenditures. EBITDA and EBITDA as a percentage of net sales excludes depreciation, amortization, other expense and income, net (including interest expense) and taxes. Projected fiscal 2017 adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes the impact of estimated severance and other employee separation costs related to the announced planned opening of the Company’s shared services center, as well as other workforce reductions. Fiscal 2016 adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes the impact of expenses related to the actual severance and other transition costs related to the termination of our distribution agreement with a customer that the Company announced in July 2015, and restructuring and impairment costs related to the Company’s retail business and acquisition related costs. The reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables appearing below. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for any measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that presenting these non-GAAP financial measures aids in making period-to-period comparisons and is a meaningful indication of its actual and estimated operating performance. The Company’s management utilizes and plans to utilize this non-GAAP financial information to compare the Company’s operating performance during the 2017 fiscal year to the comparable periods in the 2016 fiscal year and to internally prepared projections.
