SpartanNash Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2019 Financial Results

Grows Fourth Quarter Net Sales 5.3% to $2.0 Billion

Reports Positive Retail Comparable Store Sales of 0.5%

Generates Profitability In-Line with Company Guidance

Provides Fiscal Year 2020 Outlook

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SpartanNash Company (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: SPTN) today reported financial results for its 12-week fourth quarter and 52-week fiscal year ended December 28, 2019.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2019 Highlights

  • Net sales growth of 5.3%, to $2.00 billion from $1.90 billion in the prior year quarter, representing the fifteenth consecutive quarter of growth.
  • Retail comparable store sales of 0.5%, were positive for the second consecutive quarter.
  • EPS of $0.15 per share; Adjusted EPS of $0.23, including $0.11 in CEO transition and supplemental incentive program costs (“Transition Costs”).
  • Significant working capital improvements over the prior year, including over $45 million in inventory reductions, excluding the impact of the Martin’s Super Markets (“Martin’s”) acquisition.

“We are pleased with the progress that was made in the last quarter,” said Dennis Eidson, Interim President and Chief Executive Officer. “By focusing on execution, we were able to deliver positive retail comparable store sales for the second consecutive quarter, reduce working capital and increase our free cash flow, while making improvements in our supply chain operations. As a result, we were able to deliver results consistent with the guidance we provided following the third quarter and are optimistic about our future outlook.”

Consolidated Financial Results

Consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter increased $101.2 million, or 5.3%, to $2.00 billion from $1.90 billion in the prior year quarter. The increase in net sales was generated through the acquisition of Martin’s, as well as higher sales within the Food Distribution segment prior to the elimination of the intercompany sales for the acquired business.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 was $286.7 million, or 14.4% of net sales, compared to $245.4 million, or 12.9% of net sales, in the prior year quarter. The growth in gross profit and improvement as a percent of net sales was primarily driven by the acquisition of Martin’s and the resulting higher mix of Retail sales.

Reported operating expenses for the fourth quarter were $275.1 million, or 13.8% of net sales, compared to $257.2 million, or 13.6% of net sales, in the prior year quarter. The increase in expenses as a rate of sales compared to the prior year quarter was due to the additional Retail segment business associated with Martin’s, which has higher operating expense rates than the distribution business. Additionally, the Company incurred $4.6 million in higher healthcare costs in the current year quarter. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in asset impairment charges. Fourth quarter operating expenses would have been $272.2 million, or 13.6% of net sales, compared to $223.2 million, or 11.8% of net sales, in the prior year quarter, excluding the asset impairment charges and other adjustments detailed in Table 3.

The Company reported operating earnings of $11.6 million compared to a loss of $11.9 million in the prior year quarter. The improvement was primarily attributable to the decrease in asset impairment charges as well as sales growth, partially offset by higher supply chain costs and administrative expenses, including higher healthcare costs and the Transition Costs. Adjusted operating earnings(1) were $15.2 million compared to $22.2 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating earnings decreased due to the higher costs mentioned above, but benefited from the exclusion of losses related to Fresh Kitchen operations, which were not adjusted in the prior year quarter. Please see the financial tables at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable measure, prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company reported earnings from continuing operations of $5.5 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a loss of $14.0 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. The improvement reflects the operating earnings changes noted above, as well as lower interest expense.

Adjusted earnings from continuing operations(3) for the fourth quarter were $8.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, and include $3.9 million after tax, or $0.11 per diluted share, in Transition Costs. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations for the prior year quarter were $11.4 million, or $0.32 per diluted share. A reconciliation of reported earnings from continuing operations to adjusted earnings from continuing operations is included at Table 4.

Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $37.4 million compared to $44.3 million in the prior year quarter due to factors mentioned above.

Segment Financial Results

Food Distribution

Net sales for Food Distribution decreased $15.4 million, or 1.6%, to $938.9 million from $954.4 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the elimination of intercompany sales to Martin’s, net sales increased 2.5%, primarily due to sales growth with existing customers.

Reported operating earnings for Food Distribution were $10.9 million compared to a loss of $14.3 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in reported operating earnings was primarily attributable to lower asset impairment charges, partially offset by higher corporate administrative expenses, including Transition Costs, and higher supply chain costs. Fourth quarter adjusted operating earnings(1) were $15.7 million compared to $17.9 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating earnings exclude losses associated with Fresh Kitchen operations and disposition activities in the current year, and an impairment charge related to the insolvency of a customer in the prior year quarter.

Retail

Net sales for Retail increased $118.9 million, or 27.7%, to $548.0 million from $429.1 million in the prior year quarter primarily due to the acquisition of Martin’s. Comparable store sales of 0.5% were offset by the impact of store closures.

Reported operating earnings for Retail were $4.2 million compared to operating earnings of $2.9 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in reported operating earnings was due to decreases in restructuring costs, merger/acquisition and integration costs, and the contribution of the acquired Martin’s stores, partially offset by higher healthcare costs and Transition Costs. Adjusted operating earnings(1) were $3.0 million compared to $4.7 million in the prior year quarter and exclude restructuring costs and merger/acquisition and integration activity in both periods.

Military Distribution

Net sales for Military Distribution decreased $2.3 million, or 0.5%, to $511.0 million from $513.3 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was due to lower comparable sales at Defense Commissary Agency (“DeCA”) operated locations partially offset by the continued expansion of DeCA’s private brand program.

The reported operating loss for Military Distribution was $3.5 million compared to $0.5 million in the prior year quarter. The change was primarily attributable to higher supply chain costs and corporate administrative expenses, partially offset by improvements in margin rates. Adjusted operating loss(1) was $3.5 million compared to $0.4 million in the prior year quarter.

Fiscal Year 2019 Results

Consolidated net sales for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019 increased $471.5 million, or 5.8%, to $8.54 billion from $8.06 billion in the prior fiscal year. The increase in net sales was generated through the acquisition of Martin’s, as well as higher sales within the Food Distribution segment prior to the elimination of the intercompany sales for the acquired business.

The Company reported earnings from continuing operations for fiscal 2019 of $5.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $33.8 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, in the prior year. The decrease was primarily related to pension termination expenses, an increase in supply chain costs, and higher administrative expenses, including Transition Costs. These factors were partially offset by lower restructuring charges and the contribution of the acquired Martin’s stores. Adjusted earnings from continuing operations(3) for fiscal 2019 were $39.9 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, compared to $67.3 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, in the prior year. Fiscal 2019 adjusted earnings exclude $34.0 million of net after-tax charges primarily related to pension termination expense, asset impairment charges, one-time costs associated with Project One Team and losses from the Fresh Kitchen operations in the second half of the year. Fiscal 2018 adjusted earnings from continuing operations exclude $33.5 million of net after-tax charges primarily related to asset impairment.

Adjusted EBITDA(2) for fiscal 2019 was $177.9 million, or 2.1% of net sales, compared to $209.4 million, or 2.6% of net sales, in fiscal 2018.

Capital expenditures totaled $74.8 million in fiscal 2019, as approximately $12 million more in expenditures were incurred but not paid in the last period of the fiscal year compared to 2018, shifting the purchases from fiscal 2019 to fiscal 2020 for cash flow purposes. The Company incurred depreciation and amortization expense of $88.4 million in fiscal 2019.

Cash Flow

Cash flows provided by operating activities in fiscal 2019 were $180.2 million, compared to $171.7 million in the prior year. The increase was due to improvements in working capital, partially offset by lower earnings from continuing operations. The Company generated $105.4 million in free cash flow(5) in the current year and $100.2 million in the prior year. SpartanNash reduced net long-term debt(6) levels by $15.1 million during fiscal 2019.

The Company declared $27.6 million in 2019 quarterly cash dividends equal to $0.76 per common share.

Strategic Business Objectives

Following are key updates to the Company’s progress towards its strategic business objectives during the fourth quarter of 2019:

  • Sustained mid-single digit sales growth in the fourth quarter, realizing 5.3% net sales growth from the same quarter in the prior year and delivering the 15th consecutive quarter of net sales growth.
  • Made significant progress on implementation of Project One Team initiatives, continuing to support the expected realization of a run-rate of over $20.0 million in annual cost savings by April 20, 2021.
  • Continued to make reductions to working capital, realizing a significant improvement over the fourth quarter of 2018, despite sustaining net sales growth and the acquisition of Martin’s in early 2019. Working capital improvements were driven by reductions in inventory levels of over $45 million, excluding the acquisition.
  • Ceased production within the Fresh Kitchen during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 and entered into an agreement to sell the facility and related equipment with an expected closing date late in the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Outlook

For the 53-week fiscal year ending January 2, 2021, the Company anticipates low-single digit percentage sales growth. On a 52-week basis, the Company expects the Food Distribution segment will continue to achieve mid-single digit sales growth driven by existing customers and new business, partially offset by attrition in the independent retail base and the closure of the Fresh Kitchen operations. The Company expects positive Retail segment comparable sales for fiscal 2020 to range from 0.1% to 0.7%. In the Military Distribution segment, the Company expects a continued decline in the DeCA comparable sales trend, partially offset by growth in DeCA private brands, resulting in a mid-single digit percentage sales decline. The Company will also benefit from an additional week of sales compared to the 52-week year ended December 28, 2019, which will be reflected in the Company’s fourth quarter fiscal 2020 results.

The Company is also initiating fiscal 2020 adjusted EBITDA guidance of $180 million to $190 million, compared to fiscal 2019’s adjusted EBITDA(2) of $177.9 million, consistent with the Company’s projected increases in operating earnings.

For fiscal year 2020, the Company anticipates adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations(4) of approximately $1.12 to $1.20, excluding restructuring charges, merger/acquisition and integration expenses and other adjusted items totaling $7.5 million to $9.0 million before taxes, as detailed in Table 7. The favorable contributions from initiatives associated with Project One Team are expected to be partially offset by the increase in costs to achieve normalized incentive compensation levels. The Company anticipates that reported earnings from continuing operations will be in the range of approximately $0.93 to $1.04 per diluted share, compared to earnings from continuing operations of $0.16 per diluted share in fiscal 2019. The anticipated adjusted and reported earnings per share from continuing operations include approximately $0.02 in benefits from the 53rd week in fiscal 2020 as compared to 52-weeks in fiscal 2019.

The Company’s guidance reflects an effective tax rate of 23.5% to 24.5% for fiscal year 2020. The Company expects capital expenditures for fiscal year 2020 to be in the range of $80.0 million to $90.0 million, including the $12 million in 2019 capital expenditure accruals mentioned previously, with depreciation and amortization of $88.0 million to $94.0 million. Interest expense is expected to range from $27.0 million to $28.0 million in fiscal 2020.

With the low volume post-Easter week moving into fiscal 2020’s first quarter, the Company expects Retail comparable sales to be approximately flat. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 are expected to be slightly above the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

The Board of Directors has continued a comprehensive process to identify the Company’s next Chief Executive Officer and has made progress in the search over the last quarter.
