Hostess Brands, Inc. Announces Strong Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
08/04/21

Double-Digit Net Revenue Growth Driven by over 200 basis points of Market Share Expansion

Raises Full-Year 2021 Net Revenue and Earnings Guidance

LENEXA, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 2021-- Hostess Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWNK, TWNKW) (the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

“We had another excellent quarter marked by double-digit net revenue growth as our investments for growth are paying off. Our top-line remains strong while lapping the Voortman pipeline fill from 2020. Our category-leading point-of-sale growth and market share gains within the breakfast, all-day snacking and cookies consumer segments are driven by robust new product innovation and strong execution as we leverage our broad-based distribution strength across channels,” commented Andy Callahan, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

He continued, “Our outstanding results and the ongoing growth momentum in both at-home and on-the-go snacking occasions makes us optimistic for the balance of the year, enabling us to raise our full year financial outlook and delever to 3x by the end of the year. With our price realization, other revenue management activities and additional productivity initiatives we are well positioned to offset rising inflation. We are confident in our ability to continue to manage second half margins while building on our solid foundation for future growth through investments in capabilities, advertising and marketing to drive shareholder value.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights1

  • Net revenue of $291.5 million increased 13.8%. Adjusted net revenue was $291.5 million, an increase of 10.8% from the same period last year, reflecting strong Hostess® branded products performance in the convenience, grocery, and dollar channels.
  • Gross profit was $105.1 million, an increase of 17.6%. On an adjusted basis, gross profit increased 7.3% overcoming rising inflation and a difficult year on year comparison as we lapped the Voortman pipeline fill.
  • Net income was $29.8 million or $0.21 per diluted share. Adjusted net income increased 10.3% to $32.2 million and adjusted EPS of $0.23 compared to $0.22 in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.1% to $68.4 million, or 23.5% of adjusted net revenue. The increase was driven primarily by higher Hostess® branded sales, favorable product mix and operating efficiencies more than offsetting inflation and investments made for future growth.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $218.8 million as of June 30, 2021. Net leverage ratio declined to 3.4x driven by improved operating cash flow.
  • Raising full year 2021 guidance for revenue growth to 7.5% - 9.0% and adjusted EBITDA to $260 million - $268 million.

Other Highlights

  • Hostess manufacturer point-of-sale (“POS”) increased 11.4% and its share of the Sweet Baked Goods category increased by 207 basis points to 21.8%.
  • Hostess® branded POS grew 12.4% driven by solid core performance and strong contribution from our new product innovation, including great consumer response to our new Baby Bundt products.
  • Voortman® branded POS grew 23.7% reflecting robust consumer demand and execution of the Company's growth initiatives.
  • Executed pricing initiatives with realization to begin in the second half of year.
  • Launched new “Live Your Mostess”® national advertising campaign in June 2021 across multiple retail and consumer digital platforms.
  • Published first Hostess Brands Corporate Responsibility report in June 2021 demonstrating our commitment to enhancing transparency into our ongoing ESG initiatives.
  • Advanced the installation of new cake line investment to expand our capacity with ramp up expected in the second half of 2021.
  • Company repurchased approximately 1.5 million shares for $25 million under its previously authorized $100 million share repurchase authorization.

The Company provides guidance only on a non-generally accepted accounting principles (non-GAAP) basis and does not provide a reconciliation of the Company's forward-looking financial expectations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because of the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including adjustments that could be made for deferred taxes, remeasurement of the Tax Receivable Agreement, transformation expenses and other non-operating gains or losses reflected in the Company's reconciliation of historic non-GAAP financial measures, the amount of which could be material. Please refer to the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures included in this press release for further information about the use of these measures.

Second Quarter 2021 Compared to Second Quarter 20201

Net revenue was $291.5 million, an increase of 13.8%, or $35.3 million, compared to $256.2 million. Adjusted net revenue was $291.5 million, an increase of 10.8%, compared to $263.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted net revenue growth was primarily driven by sweet baked goods net revenue, which increased $29.9 million or 12.9%. This growth was driven by double-digit POS growth in grocery, dollar and convenience channels with continued momentum of single-serve products and innovation. Voortman adjusted net revenue of $29.0 million was down $1.4 million or 4.6% due to lapping of last year's inventory pipeline fill to support Voortman's transition to the warehouse distribution model. Voortman POS trends remained strong with 23.7% growth in the quarter.

Gross profit was $105.1 million, or 36.1% of net revenue compared to 34.9% in the same period last year. Adjusted gross profit margin of 36.1% declined from 37.3% in the same period last year as the year-ago period benefited from a temporary margin lift due to Voortman's pipeline fill. Adjusted gross profit increased 7.3% as higher volumes, favorable product mix and productivity initiatives offset commodity, labor and transportation costs inflation.

Operating income was $53.1 million. Adjusted operating income of $54.2 million increased 10.6% from the same period last year as higher gross profit was partially offset by higher general and administrative investments as well as advertising and marketing spending to support top-line growth.

Adjusted EBITDA of $68.4 million, or 23.5% of adjusted net revenue, increased 5.1% from the same period last year driven by strong Hostess® branded volume and favorable product mix. Depreciation and amortization expense declined $1.2 million to $12.5 million and share-based compensation expense declined $0.8 million to $1.6 million in the quarter.

The Company's effective tax rate was 28.2% compared to 84.8% in the prior year, which reflected a non-taxable $16.4 million change in fair value of warrant liabilities and the benefit from non-controlling interest in the prior year period. The effective tax rate, excluding discrete items was 27.3% in the current quarter.

Net income was $29.8 million compared to $1.0 million. Adjusted net income of $32.2 million increased 10.3% from the same period last year. GAAP diluted EPS was $0.21. Adjusted EPS was $0.23 compared to $0.22 in the prior year period as higher income was partially offset by higher share dilution from the warrants.

Cash from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was $87.3 million compared to $60.7 million for the same period last year. Operating cash flow benefited from current year improvement in profitability as well as lapping prior-year costs related to the integration and conversion of Voortman's operations, partially offset by an increase in working capital.

Please refer to the schedules in the press release for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measure. Unless otherwise stated, all comparisons of financial measures in this press release are to the second quarter of 2020.

HOSTESS BRANDS, INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted net revenue, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted Class A net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted shares and adjusted EPS collectively referred to as “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” are commonly used in the Company's industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net revenue, gross profit, operating income, net income, net income attributed to Class A stockholders or earnings per share as indicators of operating performance (as determined in accordance with GAAP). These Non-GAAP Financial Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company has included these Non-GAAP Financial Measures because it believes the measures provide management and investors with additional information to measure the Company's performance, estimate the Company's value and evaluate the Company's ability to service debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures are adjusted to exclude certain items that affect comparability. The adjustments are itemized in the tables below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reason the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating adjustments, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments set forth below. The presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or recurring items.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude (i) interest expense, net, (ii) depreciation and amortization (iii) income taxes and (iv) share-based compensation, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. For example, adjusted EBITDA:

  • does not reflect the Company's capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs;
  • does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company's debt; and
  • does not reflect payments related to income taxes, the Tax Receivable Agreement or distributions to the non-controlling interest to reimburse its tax liability.
