ATCHISON, Kan., Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MGP Ingredients, Inc. (Nasdaq:MGPI), a leading provider of distilled spirits, branded spirits, and food ingredient solutions, today reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

2021 second quarter results compared to 2020 second quarter results

  • Consolidated sales increased 89.0% to $174.9 million, as a result of strong growth in each of the reporting segments.
  • Consolidated gross profit increased 174.5% to $56.8 million, representing 32.5% of consolidated sales, due to record gross profit in each of the reporting segments.
  • Non-GAAP gross profit increased 186.7% to $59.4 million, representing 33.9% of consolidated sales.
  • Consolidated operating income increased 144.0% to $27.7 million; non-GAAP operating income increased 204.7% to $36.9 million.
  • Earnings per share ("EPS") increased to $0.91 per share from $0.50 per share; non-GAAP EPS increased to $1.27 per share from $0.54 per share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased to $42.3 million from $15.7 million, representing a 169.8% increase.

“The record consolidated quarterly results reflect the progress our team has made toward executing our long-term strategic plan,” said David Colo, president and CEO of MGP Ingredients. “Sales of premium beverage alcohol increased 54.2%, primarily driven by brown goods sales growth of 72.8% from last year, which was due to both higher aged whiskey and new distillate sales. The American Whiskey category remains robust, and we continue to optimize our significant share and scale advantage to grow the business.

“Integration of our recently completed acquisition of Luxco remains on track, including achievement of the synergy expectations we shared earlier in the year”, continued Colo.   “This additional platform is already improving our gross profit and cash flow generation profile and provides long term growth opportunities for the company.   We also recently announced three key leadership changes, David Bratcher was elevated to Chief Operating Officer, Amel Pasagic was appointed Chief Information Officer and Erika Lapish joined as Vice President Human Resources. David, Amel and Erika are proven leaders and further strengthen our capability of executing our long-term strategies.”

Distillery Products Segment
In the second quarter of 2021, sales for the Distillery Products segment increased 20.8% to $90.3 million, reflecting a 54.2% increase in sales of premium beverage alcohol, as a result of higher aged whiskey, white goods and new distillate sales. Gross profit increased to $32.0 million or 35.4% of segment sales, compared to $15.9 million, or 21.2% of segment sales in the second quarter 2020.

“We posted another record quarter in the Distillery Products segment, primarily driven by strong aged whiskey sales, as a result of the continued robust consumer demand for our premium beverage alcohol offerings,” said Colo. “The macro consumer trend supporting the ongoing growth of the American Whiskey category remains solid, which is confirmed by the demand we’re experiencing from new and existing brown goods customers.

“White goods sales also posted solid growth of 22.4% from the prior year period, primarily due to improved prices. As for industrial alcohol products, we have seen additional supply enter the market this quarter and we anticipate spot market margins will normalize and return to historical levels as demand moderates over the next several quarters.”

Branded Spirits Segment
In the second quarter of 2021, sales for the Branded Spirits segment totaled $60.4 million, primarily due to the Luxco acquisition. Gross profit increased to $18.4 million or 30.5% of segment sales, compared to $0.1 million, or 38.5% of segment sales in the second quarter 2020. Excluding the impact of purchase accounting related to the Luxco acquisition, gross margin totaled 35.7% for the quarter.

“The results for this newly created segment exceeded our expectations this quarter,” commented Colo. “We are very pleased with the ongoing consumer demand for our brands, as we continue to focus on improving our portfolio profitability by optimizing gross profits and margins, as well as the marketing mix across all of our brands.”

Ingredient Solutions Segment
For the second quarter of 2021, sales in the Ingredient Solutions segment increased 39.1% to $24.2 million. Gross profit increased to $6.4 million, or 26.5% of segment sales, compared to $4.7 million, or 27.1% of segment sales in the second quarter 2020.

“As expected, this quarter’s results reflect the solid demand we continue to experience for our specialty wheat proteins and starches in the Ingredient Solutions segment,” said Colo. “We believe our diverse customer base and product offering continue to be aligned with strong consumer trends.”

Other
MGP experienced a fire at the Atchison facility during the fourth quarter 2020, which damaged feed drying equipment and caused a temporary loss of production time. During the second quarter, the Company recorded a $6.2 million partial settlement from its insurance carrier and is working to construct a replacement drying system that is anticipated to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Corporate selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the second quarter 2021 increased to $29.2 million as compared to $9.4 million in the second quarter 2020, primarily driven by the assumption of Luxco SG&A expenses, as well as one-time acquisition related costs.

The corporate effective tax rate for the quarter was 24.2% compared with 23.1% in the year ago period due to higher pre-tax income, which lessened the proportionate effects of tax credits received.

EPS increased to $0.91 for the second quarter 2021 based on 21.9 million shares outstanding, compared to $0.50 for the second quarter 2020 based on 16.9 million shares outstanding. Second quarter 2021 non-GAAP EPS increased to $1.27 per share from $0.54 per share, as compared to the prior year period.

2021 Outlook
MGP is offering the following consolidated guidance for fiscal 2021, including Luxco's financial results:

  • Sales are projected to be in the range of $570 million to $580 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $105 million to $110 million.
  • Adjusted earnings per share are forecasted to be in the $2.90 to $3.00 range, with weighted average shares outstanding expected to be approximately 20.7 million at year end.

Conclusion
“While we are off to a strong start to the year, we remain conscientious of the pandemic’s continued uncertainty and its potential impact on our results,” said Colo. “We remain committed to the execution of our long-term growth strategy, further building on the momentum from last quarter and year. Our three business segments are uniquely aligned with strong consumer trends, which we believe will create long-term and sustainable shareholder value. While we are very pleased with the unprecedented aged whiskey sales year to date, our full year guidance reflects aged whiskey demand to moderate in the back half of the year and over the long-term, to grow in line with the overall American Whiskey category.”
