MGP Ingredients Reports Strong Second Quarter 2022 Results

08/04/2022

Consolidated sales increased 11% from prior year period
Operating income increased 28%

ATCHISON, Kan., Aug. 04, 2022 (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, 2022.

2022 second quarter consolidated results compared to 2021 second quarter
  • Sales increased 11% to $195.0 million, as a result of sales growth in the Distilling Solutions and Ingredient Solutions segments.
  • Gross profit increased 4% to $59.2 million, representing 30.4% of sales. Adjusted gross profit decreased slightly from $59.4 million.
  • Operating income increased 28% to $35.3 million. Adjusted operating income decreased 4% from $36.9 million.
  • Net income increased 26% to $25.4 million. Adjusted net income decreased 10% from $28.1 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5% to $40.1 million.
  • Basic and diluted earnings per common share ("EPS") increased to $1.15 per share from $0.91 per share. Adjusted basic and diluted EPS decreased to $1.15 per share from $1.27 per share.

“We are pleased with our team’s performance during the second quarter as we continue to execute against our long-term strategic plan,” said David Colo, president and CEO of MGP Ingredients. “Continued strength in the demand for new distillate and aged whiskey resulted in brown goods sales growth of 29% versus the prior year period, driving an overall increase in sales of 19% for premium beverage alcohol. As expected, industrial alcohol and white goods gross profits were negatively impacted by increased commodity costs and additional supply that has entered the market. Consumer demand for our Branded Spirits premium plus offerings, which include premium, super premium and ultra premium brands, remains strong. We also increased our advertising and promotion investment in these brands to support anticipated incremental growth. Our enthusiasm for our Ingredient Solutions segment remains strong, which again delivered record results during the second quarter as we made further progress to optimize segment product mix and align with consumer demand trends. We are confident the marketing platform and go-to-market strategy we have in place will drive further growth in the segment.”

Distilling Solutions
In the second quarter 2022, sales for the Distilling Solutions segment increased 19% to $107.1 million, reflecting a 19% increase in sales of premium beverage alcohol. Gross profit decreased to $29.8 million or 27.8% of segment sales, compared to $32.0 million, or 35.4% of segment sales in the second quarter 2021.

Branded Spirits
For the second quarter 2022, sales for the Branded Spirits segment declined 3% to $58.6 million. Gross profit increased to $21.0 million, or 35.8% of segment sales compared to $18.4 million, or 30.5% of segment sales in the second quarter 2021. Excluding the impact of purchase accounting related to the Luxco acquisition, gross margin was 34.7% for the second quarter 2021.

Ingredient Solutions
In the second quarter 2022, sales in the Ingredient Solutions segment increased 21% to a record $29.3 million. Gross profit increased to $8.5 million, or 29.0% of segment sales, compared to $6.4 million, or 26.5% of segment sales in the second quarter 2021.

Other
Advertising and promotion expenses for the second quarter 2022 increased $2.7 million to $6.1 million as compared to the second quarter 2021, primarily driven by incremental investment in the ultra premium, super premium and premium price tier spirit brands.

Corporate selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the second quarter 2022 decreased $7.9 million to $17.9 million as compared to the second quarter 2021, primarily due to the one-time acquisition costs in 2021 related to the Luxco acquisition that did not recur in 2022.

The corporate effective tax rate for the second quarter 2022 was 22.4%, compared with 24.2% from the year ago period.

“As we look ahead to the second half of the year, we are confident in our ability to build on the accomplishments we have made towards our long-term strategic objectives,” said Colo. “The expansionary projects we announced earlier this year remain on track and we believe will enable us to meet evolving consumer trends and demand. Our approach to capital allocation remains unchanged, and we will continue to prioritize organic and acquisitive growth. Our excellent performance during the first half of the year has enabled us to revise our full-year guidance upward.”

2022 Outlook
MGP is revising upward its previous consolidated guidance for fiscal 2022:

  • Sales are projected to be in the range of $745 million to $765 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $156 million to $163 million.
  • Basic adjusted earnings per common share are forecasted to be in the $4.41 to $4.65 range, with basic weighted average shares outstanding expected to be approximately 22.0 million at year end.

Full year 2022 guidance measures of adjusted EBITDA and basic adjusted EPS are provided on a non-GAAP basis without a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measures because MGP is unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty certain items contained in the GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. Such items include, but are not limited to, acquisition related expenses, restructuring and related expenses, and other items not reflective of MGP’s ongoing operations.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations include, (i) disruptions in the operations at any of our facilities, (ii) the availability and cost of grain, flour, and agave, and fluctuations in energy costs, (iii) the effectiveness of our grain purchasing program to mitigate our exposure to commodity price fluctuations, (iv) the effectiveness or execution of our strategic plan, (v) potential adverse effects to operations and our system of internal controls related to the loss of key management personnel, (vi) the competitive environment and related market conditions, (vii) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, (viii) the effects of inflation and the ability to effectively pass raw material and other price increases on to customers, (ix) our ability to maintain compliance with all applicable loan agreement covenants, (x) increases in interest rates, (xi) our ability to realize operating efficiencies, (xii) actions of governments, and (xiii) consumer tastes and preferences.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to reporting financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, or alternatives for, GAAP. In addition to the comparable GAAP measures, MGP has disclosed adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating income, adjusted income before taxes, adjusted net income, adjusted MGP earnings, adjusted EBITDA and basic and diluted adjusted earnings per common share. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should be reviewed in conjunction with gross profit, operating income, income before income taxes, net income, net income used in earnings per common share calculation and basic and diluted EPS computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered a substitute for these GAAP measures. The non-GAAP adjustments referenced in the section entitled "Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures," take into account the impacts of items that are not necessarily ongoing in nature and/or predictive of the Company's operating trends. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations. In addition, management uses these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP measures when evaluating the Company’s operating results compared to prior periods on a consistent basis, assessing financial trends and for forecasting purposes. Non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to other companies, even if similar terms are used to identify such measures. The attached schedules provide a full reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.
