Nash Finch Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Nash Finch Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Total Company Sales Increase 1.7% Principally due to 2012 Omaha Retail Acquisitions

Adjusted EPS 1 of $1.38 versus $1.25 per Diluted Share in the Prior Year Period

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nash Finch Company (Nasdaq: NAFC  ) , one of the leading food distribution companies in the United States, today announced financial results for the sixteen weeks (third quarter) ended October 6, 2012.

Financial Results

Total Company sales for the third quarter 2012 were $1.50 billion compared to $1.47 billion in the prior-year quarter, an increase of 1.7%. The acquisition of eighteen No Frills® stores during the third quarter of 2012 and twelve Bag ‘N Save® stores during the second quarter of 2012 contributed to a net increase in total Company sales of $47.2 million, which is comprised of a $104.3 million increase in Retail segment sales being partially offset by a $57.1 million decrease in Food Distribution segment sales that are now reported in the Retail segment. After adjusting for these acquisitions, total Company third quarter comparable sales decreased 1.4% relative to the prior year period.

Adjusted Consolidated EBITDA2 was $43.8 million, or 2.9% of sales in the third quarter of 2012 as compared to $45.9 million, or 3.1% of sales in the third quarter of 2011. Consolidated EBITDA was adjusted to exclude the impact of significant items totaling $4.1 million and $3.3 million in the third quarter 2012 and 2011, respectively. Including the impact of significant items, Consolidated EBITDA for the third quarter 2012 was $39.7 million, or 2.7% of sales, as compared to $42.6 million, or 2.9% of sales, in the prior year quarter.

“We are proud to have been recognized by Store Brands magazine as “Wholesaler of the Year” based on our new private label marketing program and the benefits that program offers to our participating retail customers. Our gross margins were negatively impacted in the quarter as a result of our investment in this and other marketing programs which are starting to drive higher case volume,” said Alec Covington, President and CEO of Nash Finch. “Our gross margin was also negatively impacted during the quarter by lower food price inflation, offset by lower incentive plan expenses as compared to the same period last year. We continue our focus on sales growth, managing working capital and implementing cost reduction strategies to benefit us in the longer term.”

Adjusted net earnings were $18.0 million or $1.38 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $16.4 million or $1.25 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011. Net earnings were adjusted to exclude the impact of significant items totaling $3.4 million or $0.26 per diluted share in 2012 and $6.3 million or $0.48 per diluted share in the 2011 quarter. Including the impact of significant items, our reported net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $14.6 million or $1.12 per diluted share, as compared to net earnings of $10.1 million or $0.77 per diluted share in the prior year quarter, and is detailed in the table below.

The Company took a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $96.9 million after tax in the second quarter 2012 to write-off the carrying values of goodwill in the Food Distribution and Retail segments which is included in our year-to-date results. Both the goodwill impairment charge and the $4.1 million after tax gain on acquisition are non-cash items in our year-to-date consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, neither the impairment of goodwill nor the gain on acquisition had any impact on our cash flows or Consolidated EBITDA.

The following table identifies the significant items affecting Consolidated EBITDA, net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter 2012 and prior year results:

Military Distribution Results

             
(dollars in millions) 3rd Quarter   Fiscal
2012   2011   2012   2011
Net Sales $ 708.1 709.7 1,762.6 1,776.3
Segment EBITDA1 13.7 21.3 38.9 51.3
Percentage of Sales 1.9% 3.0% 2.2% 2.9%

The Military segment net sales were $708.1 million, a decrease of 0.2% in the third quarter 2012 compared to the prior year. However, a larger portion of Military sales during the current year have been on a consignment basis, which are included in our reported sales on a net basis. Including the impact of consignment sales, comparable Military sales increased 0.5% in the third quarter.

The Military segment EBITDA was $13.7 million, or 1.9% of sales, in the third quarter 2012 as compared to $21.3 million, or 3.0% of sales, in the third quarter 2011. The decrease in Military EBITDA in the third quarter was primarily due to declines in gross margins related to lower inflation year-over-year and reduced contractual customer margin rates as well as higher start-up and transition costs from the opening of distribution centers in 2012 as compared to 2011.

“The investments we made in completing our military platform had a negative impact on the EBITDA generated this quarter, but we are pleased that investment helped us garner our first exclusive military distribution contract, in partnership with Coastal Pacific Food Distributors. Deliveries under that contract are scheduled to begin late in the fourth quarter and we are honored by the trust placed in us by one of our largest customers,” continued Covington. “We continue to experience lower gross margins due to lower inflation in 2012 and the results of the competitive bidding processes earlier in the year. We are focused on increasing sales, improving productivity and managing expenses.”

The combined Food Distribution and Retail segment sales were $788.3 million, an increase of 3.5% in the third quarter as compared to the prior year period. The increase in Retail sales was primarily attributable to the Bag ‘N Save® and No Frills® supermarkets acquisitions, which were responsible for a $104.3 million increase in sales as compared to the prior year quarter. Because Bag ‘N Save® and No Frills® were Food Distribution customers, these acquisitions were also responsible for $57.1 million of the year-over-year decrease in Food Distribution segment sales. Retail same store sales declined 1.3% as compared to the prior year quarter.

The combined Food Distribution and Retail segment EBITDA was $26.1 million, or 3.3% of sales, in the third quarter 2012 as compared to $21.3 million, or 2.8% of sales, in the third quarter 2011.

“I am pleased with the combined Food Distribution and Retail EBITDA improvement in the third quarter 2012. This was primarily due to the recent retail acquisitions of Bag ‘N Save® and No Frills® supermarkets in the Omaha, Nebraska market in addition to incurring lower incentive plan expenses as compared to the prior year period. During the third quarter, we began to integrate the 30 newly acquired stores into our corporate store base. We expect the integration to be completed by first quarter 2013,” said Covington.

Distribution Center Closure Announced

We recently announced the decision to close our Cedar Rapids, Iowa distribution center during the fourth quarter of this year. We will be transferring the volume to other distribution facilities in the region which will allow for increased efficiencies and additional product selection for customers. We appreciate the hard work of our dedicated associates that work in Cedar Rapids and for their many years of service.

Liquidity

Total debt at the end of the third quarter 2012 increased to $388.9 million, primarily due to the Bag ‘N Save and No Frills acquisitions, compared to $309.8 million at the end of the third quarter 2011. The Company continues to focus on effectively managing its balance sheet and is currently in compliance with all of its debt covenants. The debt leverage ratio as of the end of the third quarter 2012 was 3.18. Availability on the Company’s revolving credit facility at the end of the quarter was $201.2 million.

1 Adjusted EPS is defined as net earnings adjusted for any significant items divided by diluted shares outstanding.

2 References to EBITDA, Consolidated EBITDA, and segment EBITDA are calculated as earnings (loss) before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization, adjusted to exclude extraordinary gains or losses, gains or losses from sales of assets other than inventory in the ordinary course of business, and non-cash charges (such as LIFO, asset impairments, closed store lease costs and share-based compensation), less cash payments made during the current period on non-cash charges recorded in prior periods. Consolidated EBITDA should not be considered an alternative measure of our net income (loss), operating performance, cash flows or liquidity. Consolidated EBITDA is provided as additional information as a key metric used to determine payout pursuant to our Short-Term and Long-Term Incentive Plans. The Company also believes investors find the information useful because it reflects the resources available for strategic investments including, for example, capital needs of the business, strategic acquisitions and debt service.

3 Organic Revenue Growth is the percentage change in revenues for a fiscal period(s) compared to the similar prior year fiscal period(s), excluding incremental revenue obtained through acquisitions.

4 Consolidated EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Consolidated EBITDA by sales.

5 Trailing Four Quarter Free Cash Flow to Net Assets ratio is defined as cash provided from operations less capital expenditures for property, plant & equipment during the trailing four quarters divided by the average net assets for the current period and prior year comparable period (total assets less current liabilities plus current portion of long-term debt and capital leases).

6 Trailing Four Quarter Free Cash Flow to Net Assets excluding impact of strategic projects ratio is defined as cash provided from operations less capital expenditures for property, plant & equipment (excluding capital expenditures for strategic projects) during the trailing four quarters divided by the average net assets (excluding average net assets generated from strategic projects) for the current period and prior year comparable period (total assets less current liabilities plus current portion of long-term debt and capital leases).

7 Total Leverage Ratio is defined as total debt (current portion of long-term debt and capital leases, long-term debt and capitalized lease obligations) divided by the trailing four quarters Consolidated EBITDA.
