11/03/2022

Consolidated sales increased 14% from prior year period
Continued strength across each business segment

ATCHISON, Kan., Nov. 03, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

2022 third quarter consolidated results compared to 2021 third quarter

  • Sales increased 14% to $201.2 million, as a result of record third quarter sales across all three business segments.
  • Gross profit increased 3% to $59.1 million, representing 29.4% of sales.     
  • Operating income increased 3% to $33.9 million. Adjusted operating income increased 2% from $33.2 million.
  • Net income decreased slightly to $23.6 million. Adjusted net income decreased 1% from $23.9 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 1% to $38.7 million.
  • Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) decreased to $1.07 per share from $1.08 per share. Adjusted basic EPS decreased to $1.07 per share from $1.09 per share.
  • Diluted EPS decreased to $1.06 per share from $1.08 per share. Adjusted diluted EPS decreased to $1.06 per share from $1.09 per share.

“Our strong performance this quarter demonstrates sustained momentum across each of our segments and the value we bring to our global customer base,” said Dave Colo, president and CEO of MGP Ingredients. “Demand for new distillate and aged whiskey remains strong and contributed to brown goods sales growth of 34% versus the prior year period, driving an overall increase of 22% in sales of premium beverage alcohol. Although brown goods gross profit continued to be healthy, industrial alcohol and white goods gross profits continue to be negatively impacted by increased commodity costs and excess supply in the market. Consumer demand for our premium, super premium, and ultra premium spirits brands remains strong and continues to drive gross margin expansion in our Branded Spirits segment. Our Ingredient Solutions segment continues to benefit from the shift in consumer behavior toward plant-based foods in their diets, which contributed to record sales during the third quarter. Our solid performance year-to-date underscores the strength of our business model and, as we look forward, we are committed to executing our strategies to create long-term shareholder value.”

Distilling Solutions
In the third quarter 2022, sales for the Distilling Solutions segment increased 19% to a record $108.6 million, reflecting a 22% increase in sales of premium beverage alcohol. Gross profit decreased to $25.9 million or 23.9% of segment sales, compared to $27.0 million, or 29.6% of segment sales in the third quarter 2021.

Branded Spirits
For the third quarter 2022, sales for the Branded Spirits segment increased 2% to a record $62.8 million. Gross profit increased to a record $25.1 million, or 39.9% of segment sales compared to $23.2 million, or 37.7% of segment sales in the third quarter 2021.

Ingredient Solutions
In the third quarter of 2022, sales in the Ingredient Solutions segment increased 24% to a record $29.7 million. Gross profit increased to $8.1 million, or 27.1% of segment sales, compared to $6.9 million, or 28.7% of segment sales in the third quarter 2021.

Other
Advertising and promotion expenses for the third quarter 2022 increased $1.6 million, or 29%, to $7.3 million as compared to the third quarter 2021, primarily driven by further incremental investment to support continued growth in the ultra premium, super premium and premium price tier spirit brands.

Corporate selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the third quarter 2022 decreased $0.6 million to $17.9 million as compared to the third quarter 2021.

The corporate effective tax rate for the third quarter 2022 was 24.2%, compared with 24.5% from the year ago period.

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

  • Sales are projected to be in the range of $765 million to $780 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $162 million to $167 million.
  • Adjusted basic earnings per common share are forecasted to be in the $4.62 to $4.80 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 adjusted basic 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 COVID-19 and other pandemics, (viii) the effects of inflation and our 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 income taxes, adjusted net income, adjusted MGP earnings, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted basic and diluted 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.

  (a) The impacts of the Convertible Senior Notes were included in the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding if the impact was dilutive. The Convertible Senior Notes would only have a dilutive impact if the average market price per share during the quarter and year to date period exceeds the conversion price of $96.23620 per share. For the quarter ended September 30, 2022, the inclusion of the shares had a dilutive impact and were included in the diluted EPS calculation. For the year to date ended September 30, 2022, the inclusion of the shares would have an anti-dilutive impact and were therefore excluded from the diluted EPS calculation.

  (b) Number of bonds outstanding is calculated by taking the principle amount of the bonds divided by the par value.

  (c) Average share price is calculated by taking the average of the daily closing share price for the period. If the average share price is less than the conversion price of $96.23620 per share, the impact to EPS is anti-dilutive and therefore the shares were excluded from the diluted EPS calculation.

  (d) Impact of conversion is calculated by taking the number of bonds outstanding multiplied by the initial conversion rate multiplied by the average share price. If the average share price is less than the conversion price then the impact of conversion is zero.

  (e) Conversion premium in shares is calculated by taking the conversion premium divided by the average share price. If the average share price is less than the conversion price then the conversion premium in shares is zero.
