JOHN B. SANFILIPPO & SON, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

(Dollars in thousands, except where noted and per share data)

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation and Description of Business

As used herein, unless the context otherwise indicates, the terms “we”, “us”, “our” or “Company” collectively refer to John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. and our wholly-owned subsidiary, JBSS Ventures, LLC. Our fiscal year ends on the final Thursday of June each year, and typically consists of fifty-two weeks (four thirteen-week quarters). Additional information on the comparability of the periods presented is as follows:

 

   

References herein to fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 are to the fiscal year ending June 25, 2020 and the fiscal year ended June 27, 2019, respectively.

 

   

References herein to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 are to the quarters ended September 26, 2019 and September 27, 2018, respectively.

We are one of the leading processors and distributors of peanuts, pecans, cashews, walnuts, almonds, and other nuts in the United States. These nuts are sold under a variety of private brands and under the Fisher, Orchard Valley Harvest, Squirrel Brand, Southern Style Nuts and Sunshine Country brand names. We also market and distribute, and in most cases, manufacture or process, a diverse product line of food and snack products, including peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, candy and confections, snacks and trail mixes, snack bites, sunflower kernels, dried fruit, corn snacks, chickpea snacks, sesame sticks and other sesame snack products under private brands and brand names. Our products are sold through three primary distribution channels to significant buyers of nuts, including food retailers in the consumer channel, commercial ingredient users and contract packaging customers.

The accompanying unaudited financial statements fairly present the consolidated statements of comprehensive income, consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of stockholders’ equity and consolidated statements of cash flows, and reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments which are necessary for the fair statement of the results of the interim periods. Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses.

The interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for a full year. The balance sheet data as of June 27, 2019 was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Accordingly, these unaudited financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 27, 2019.

Note 2 – Revenue Recognition

We recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which we expect to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. For each customer contract, a five-step process is followed in which we identify the contract, identify performance obligations, determine the transaction price, allocate the contract transaction price to the performance obligations, and recognize the revenue when (or as) the performance obligation is transferred to the customer.

When Performance Obligations Are Satisfied

A performance obligation is a promise in a contract to transfer a distinct good or service to the customer and is the unit of account for revenue recognition. A contract’s transaction price is allocated to each distinct performance obligation and recognized as revenue when, or as, the performance obligation is satisfied. The Company’s performance obligations are primarily for the delivery of raw and processed recipe and snack nuts, nut butters and trail mixes.

Our customer contracts do not include more than one performance obligation. If a contract were to contain more than one performance obligation, we are required to allocate the contract’s transaction price to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price. The standalone selling price for each distinct good is generally determined by directly observable data.

 

8


Revenue recognition is generally completed at a point in time when product control is transferred to the customer. For approximately 99% of our revenues, control transfers to the customer when the product is shipped or delivered to the customer based upon applicable shipping terms, as the customer can then direct the use and obtain substantially all of the remaining benefits from the asset at that point in time. Therefore, for 99% of our revenues, the timing of revenue recognition requires little judgment.

Variable Consideration

Some of our products are sold through specific incentive programs consisting of promotional allowances, volume and customer rebates, in-store display incentives and marketing allowances, among others, to consumer and some commercial ingredient customers. The ultimate cost of these programs is dependent on certain factors such as actual purchase volumes or customer activities and is dependent on significant management estimate and judgment. The Company accounts for these programs as variable consideration and recognizes a reduction in revenue (and a corresponding reduction in the transaction price) in the same period as the underlying program based upon the terms of the specific arrangements.

Trade promotions, consisting primarily of customer pricing allowances, merchandising funds and consumer coupons, are also offered through various programs to customers and consumers. A provision for estimated trade promotions is recorded as a reduction of revenue (and a reduction in the transaction price) in the same period when the sale is recognized. Revenues are also recorded net of expected customer deductions which are provided for based upon past experiences. Evaluating these estimates requires management judgment.

We generally use the most likely amount method to determine the variable consideration. We believe there will not be significant changes to our estimates of variable consideration when any related uncertainties are resolved with our customers. The Company reviews and updates its estimates and related accruals of variable consideration and trade promotions at least quarterly based on the terms of the agreements and historical experience. Any uncertainties in the ultimate resolution of variable consideration due to factors outside of the Company’s influence are typically resolved within a short timeframe, therefore, no additional constraint on the variable consideration is required.

Contract Balances

Contract assets or liabilities result from transactions with revenue recorded over time. If the measure of remaining rights exceeds the measure of the remaining performance obligations the Company records a contract asset. Conversely, if the measure of the remaining performance obligations exceeds the measure of the remaining rights, the Company records a contract liability. There was no contract asset balance at September 26, 2019. Contract asset balances at June 27, 2019 and September 27, 2018 were $117 and $196, respectively, and are recorded in the caption “Prepaid expenses and other current assets” on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company generally does not have material deferred revenue or contract liability balances arising from transactions with customers.

Note 3—Leases

On June 28, 2019 we adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (“Topic 842”) using the alternative transition method under ASU No. 2018-11, which permits application of the new guidance at the beginning of the period of adoption, with comparative periods continuing to be reported under Topic 840. In addition, we elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance within the new standard, which among other things, allowed us to carry forward the historical lease classification. We did not elect the practical expedients regarding hindsight or land easements. See Note 14 – “Recent Accounting Pronouncements” for additional information.

 

9


Upon adoption of the new standard, we recognized operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheet of $5,361 and $5,320 respectively. We utilized a portfolio approach to establish discount rates for leases that are similar. Discount rates ranging from 4.2% to 5.8% were used when determining the present value of future lease payments. All of our existing lessee arrangements currently classified as operating leases will continue to be classified as operating leases, and the pattern of lease expense recognition will be unchanged. The adoption of Topic 842 did not materially impact our consolidated net earnings and had no impact on cash flows.

Description of Leases

We lease equipment used in the transportation of goods in our warehouses, as well as a limited number of automobiles and a small warehouse near our Bainbridge, Georgia facility. Our leases generally do not contain non-lease components and do not contain any explicit guarantees of residual value. Our leases for warehouse transportation equipment generally require the equipment to be returned to the lessor in good working order.

We determine if an arrangement is a lease at inception and analyze the lease to determine if it is operating or finance. Operating lease right-of-use assets represent our right to use an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. As most of our leases do not provide an implicit rate, we use our incremental collateralized borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. Implicit rates are used when readily determinable. None of our leases currently contain options to extend the term. In the event of an option to extend the term of a lease, the lease term used in measuring the liability would include options to extend or terminate the lease if it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise that option. Lease expense for operating lease payments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the respective lease term. Our leases have remaining terms of up to 6 years.

ASU No. 2016-02 allows for the election as an accounting policy to not apply lease recognition requirements to short term leases, defined as leases with an initial term of 12 months or less. We have elected to use this policy, and as such, leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are not recorded in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. We have also made the policy election to not separate lease and non-lease components for all leases.

Lessor Accounting

We lease office space in our four-story office building located in Elgin, Illinois. As a lessor, we retain substantially all of the risks and benefits of ownership of the investment property and under Topic 842 we continue to account for all of our leases as operating leases. Lease agreements may include options to renew. We accrue fixed lease income on a straight-line basis over the terms of the leases. There is generally no variable lease consideration and an immaterial amount of non-lease components such as recurring utility and storage fees. Leases between related parties are immaterial.

Leasing revenue is as follows:

Total amortization expense related to intangible assets, which is a component of Administrative expense, was $672 for the quarter ended September 26, 2019. Amortization expense for the remainder of fiscal 2020 is expected to be approximately $1,829, and expected amortization expense the next five fiscal years is as follows:

     1,414  

June 26, 2025

     1,156  

Our net goodwill of $9,650 relates entirely to the Squirrel Brand acquisition (the “Acquisition”) completed in the second quarter of fiscal 2018. There was no change in the carrying amount of goodwill during the quarter ended September 26, 2019.

Note 6 – Credit Facility

On February 7, 2008, we entered into a Credit Agreement with a bank group providing a $117,500 revolving loan commitment and letter of credit subfacility (the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Facility is secured by substantially all our assets other than real property and fixtures.

At September 26, 2019, we had $97,508 of available credit under the Credit Facility which reflects borrowings of $16,042 and reduced availability as a result of $3,950 in outstanding letters of credit. As of September 26, 2019, we were in compliance with all financial covenants under the Credit Facility and Mortgage Facility (as defined below).

Weighted average number of shares outstanding – diluted

     11,538,976        11,491,931  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

There were no anti-dilutive awards excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share for either period presented.

Note 8 – Stock-Based Compensation Plans

During the quarter ended September 26, 2019 there was no significant stock option or restricted stock unit activity.

Compensation expense attributable to stock-based compensation during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 was $633 and $616, respectively. As of September 26, 2019, there was $3,011 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested, share-based compensation arrangements granted under our stock-based compensation plans. We expect to recognize that cost over a weighted average period of 1.2 years.

Note 9 – Retirement Plan

The Supplemental Employee Retirement Plan is an unfunded, non-qualified deferred compensation plan that will provide eligible participants with monthly benefits upon retirement, disability or death, subject to certain conditions. The monthly benefit is based upon each participant’s earnings and his or her number of years of service. The components of net periodic benefit cost are as follows:

 

     For the Quarter Ended  
     September 26,
2019
     September 27,
2018
 

Service cost

   $ 178      $ 152

Note 11 – Commitments and Contingent Liabilities

We are currently a party to various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of business. While management presently believes that the ultimate outcomes of these proceedings, individually and in the aggregate, will not materially affect our Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows, legal proceedings are subject to inherent uncertainties, and unfavorable outcomes could occur. Unfavorable outcomes could include substantial monetary damages in excess of any appropriate accruals, which management has established. Were such unfavorable final outcomes to occur, there exists the possibility of a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

Note 12 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) defines fair value as the price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. The guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes observable and unobservable inputs used to measure fair value into three broad levels:

 

Level 1       Quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets and liabilities.
Level 2       Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets. For example, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets or quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in inactive markets.
Level 3       Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data available.

The carrying values of cash, trade accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate their fair values at each balance sheet date because of the short-term maturities and nature of these balances.

The carrying value of our revolving credit facility borrowings approximates fair value at each balance sheet date because interest rates on this instrument approximate current market rates (Level 2 criteria), and because of the short-term maturity and nature of this balance. In addition, there has been no significant change in our inherent credit risk.

The following table summarizes the carrying value and fair value estimate of our current and long-term debt, excluding unamortized debt issuance costs:

 

     September 26,
2019
    
June 27,

2019
     September 27,
2018
 

Carrying value of long-term debt:

   $ 25,606      $ 27,798      $ 32,860  

Fair value of long-term debt:

     25,710        27,720        31,600  

The estimated fair value of our long-term debt was determined using a market approach based upon Level 2 observable inputs, which estimates fair value based on interest rates currently offered on loans with similar terms to borrowers of similar credit quality or broker quotes. In addition, there have been no significant changes in the underlying assets securing our long-term debt.

Note 13 – Related Party Transaction

In connection with the acquisition of the Squirrel Brand business in the second quarter of fiscal 2018, we incurred $11,500 of unsecured debt to the principal owner and seller of the Squirrel Brand business, who was subsequently appointed as an executive officer of the Company and is considered a related party. The interest rate on the Promissory Note is 5.5% per annum and the outstanding balance at September 26, 2019 was $4,472. Interest paid on the Promissory Note for the quarter ended September 26, 2019 was $70.

Note 14 – Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The following recent accounting pronouncements have been adopted in the current fiscal year:

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02Leases (Topic 842)”. The primary goal of this Update is to require the lessee to recognize all lease commitments, both operating and finance, by initially recording a lease asset and liability on the balance sheet at the lease commencement date. Additionally, enhanced qualitative and quantitative disclosures will be required. ASU No. 2016-02 is effective for public business entities for annual periods, including interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2018. This new guidance is effective for the Company beginning in fiscal year 2020. Under ASU No. 2016-02 the guidance was to be adopted using a modified retrospective approach, with elective reliefs, with application of the new guidance for all periods presented. In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-11Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements” which provides for another transition method by allowing entities to initially apply the new leases standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The amendments in this Update also provide lessors with a practical expedient, by class of underlying asset, to not separate non-lease components from the associated lease component, similar to the expedient provided for lessees. In July 2018, the FASB also issued ASU No. 2018-10Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases” which affects narrow aspects of the guidance issued in ASU No. 2016-02. In December 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-20Leases (Topic 842) – Narrow Scope Improvements for Lessors” which provides specific guidance for lessors on the issues of sales taxes and other similar taxes collected

 

16


from lessees, certain lessor costs, and recognition of variable payments for contracts with lease and non-lease components. In March 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-01Leases (Topic 842) – Codification Improvements” which clarifies transition disclosure requirements for annual and interim periods after the date of adoption of ASU No. 2016-02.

We have implemented processes and information technology tools to assist in our ongoing lease data analysis. We have also updated our accounting policies and internal controls that are impacted by the new guidance. We adopted ASU No. 2016-02 utilizing the modified retrospective transition method and did not recast comparative periods in transition to the new standard. In addition, the new standard provides a number of optional practical expedients in transition. We elected the ‘package of practical expedients’, which permits us not to reassess under the new standard our prior conclusions about lease identification, lease classification and initial direct costs. We did not elect the use-of-hindsight or the practical expedient pertaining to land easements; the latter not being applicable to us. The adoption of this standard resulted in the recognition of operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheet of $5,361 and $5,320 respectively. The new standard also provides practical expedients for an entity’s initial and ongoing accounting. We elected the short-term lease recognition exemption for all leases that qualify. We also elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components for all of our leases. Refer to Note 3 – Leases for additional information regarding the Company’s leases.

In February 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-02 “Income Statement – Reporting Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reclassification of Certain Tax Effects from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”. The amendments in this Update allow a reclassification from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (“AOCL”) to retained earnings for stranded tax effects resulting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The amendments in this Update also require certain disclosures about stranded tax effects. The amendments in this Update should be applied either in the period of adoption or retrospectively to each period (or periods) in which the effect of the change in the U.S. federal corporate income tax rate in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is recognized. The Company adopted ASU 2018-02 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and reclassified $976 from AOCL to retained earnings. Refer to Note 10 – Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss for additional detail. ASU 2018-02 was not applied retrospectively. No other income tax effects related to the application of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act were reclassified from AOCL to retained earnings.

There are no recent accounting pronouncements that have been issued and not yet adopted that are expected to have a material impact on our Consolidated Financial Statements.

Note 15 – Subsequent Events

On October 7, 2019 we experienced a fire at our peanut processing facility located in Garysburg, North Carolina. No personnel were injured, and there was no damage to our peanut shelling and inventory storage areas. The fire occurred in our roasting room where all of the roasting equipment was destroyed. The fire also damaged some equipment in our packaging room and a portion of the roof. Due to order lead times for roasting equipment, we do not expect to have roasting capability for inshell peanuts for approximately one year. We have already secured supply of inshell roasted peanuts to meet our near term production requirements, and we will package those peanuts in our other facilities. We are currently evaluating our options with regard to our peanut production operations, which include (among other things) complete restoration of these damaged equipment or outsourcing our roasted inshell peanut requirements. We have adequate property damage and business interruption insurance (subject to applicable deductibles) and do not expect this event to have a material effect on our financial performance for the 2020 fiscal year.

On October 29, 2019, our Board of Directors declared a special cash dividend of $2.00 per share on all issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock and Class A Stock of the Company (the “October 2019 Dividend”). The October 2019 Dividend will be paid on December 10, 2019 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 26, 2019.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

OVERVIEW

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

Our fiscal year ends on the final Thursday of June each year, and typically consists of fifty-two weeks (four thirteen-week quarters). Additional information on the comparability of the periods presented is as follows:

 

   

References herein to fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 are to the fiscal year ending June 25, 2020 and the fiscal year ended June 27, 2019, respectively.

 

   

References herein to the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019 are to the quarters ended September 26, 2019 and September 27, 2018, respectively.

As used herein, unless the context otherwise indicates, the terms “we”, “us”, “our” or “Company” collectively refer to John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. and our wholly-owned subsidiary, JBSS Ventures, LLC. Our Company’s Credit Facility and Mortgage Facility, as defined below, are sometimes collectively referred to as “our financing arrangements.”

We are one of the leading processors and distributors of peanuts, pecans, cashews, walnuts, almonds and other nuts in the United States. These nuts are sold under a variety of private brands and under the Fisher, Orchard Valley Harvest, Squirrel Brand, Southern Style Nuts and Sunshine Country brand names. We also market and distribute, and in most cases, manufacture or process, a diverse product line of food and snack products, including peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, candy and confections, snacks and trail mixes, snack bites, sunflower kernels, dried fruit, corn snacks, chickpea snacks, sesame sticks and other sesame snack products under private brands and brand names. We distribute our products in the consumer, commercial ingredients and contract packaging distribution channels.

The Company’s long-term objective to drive profitable growth, as identified in our strategic plan (the “Strategic Plan”), includes continuing to grow Fisher, Orchard Valley Harvest, Squirrel Brand and Southern Style Nuts into leading nut brands by focusing on consumers demanding quality nuts in the snacking, recipe, trail and snack mix and produce categories, providing integrated nut solutions to grow non-branded business at existing key customers in each distribution channel and expanding our offerings into alternative distribution channels. We are executing on our Strategic Plan by continuing to expand distribution of our Orchard Valley Harvest and Southern Style Nuts products and growing our consumer distribution channel with private brand products.

We face a number of challenges in the future which include, among others, potential acquisition cost volatility for almonds and walnuts, as well as intensified competition for market share from both private brand and name brand nut products. We also face changing industry trends resulting in retail consolidation and Internet price competition for nut and nut-related products.

We will continue to focus on seeking profitable business opportunities to maximize the utilization of our production capacity at our primary manufacturing, processing and distribution facility located in Elgin, Illinois (the “Elgin Site”) and evaluate facility expansion to meet customer demand. We expect to maintain our current level of promotional and advertising activity for our Orchard Valley Harvest and Fisher snack brands. We continue to see significant domestic sales and volume growth in our Orchard Valley Harvest brand and will continue to focus on this portion of our branded business as well as our Squirrel Brand and Southern Style Nuts brands. We will continue to face the ongoing challenges specific to our business, such as food safety and regulatory issues and the maintenance and growth of our customer base for branded and private label products. See the information referenced in Part II, Item 1A — “Risk Factors” of this report for additional information about our risks, challenges and uncertainties.

QUARTERLY HIGHLIGHTS

Our net sales of $217.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 6.6% from our net sales of $204.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Sales volume, measured as pounds sold to customers, increased 9.1% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Gross profit increased by $9.3 million, and our gross profit margin, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 19.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to 16.1% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased by $0.3 million, or 1.2%, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. As a percentage of net sales, total operating expenses in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased to 10.6% from 11.2% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

The total value of inventories on hand at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased by $24.6 million, or 13.6%, in comparison to the total value of inventories on hand at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

We have seen acquisition costs for walnuts begin to increase in the 2019 crop year (which falls into our current 2020 fiscal year). We also continue to see declining acquisition costs for cashews. While we began to procure inshell walnuts during the first quarter of fiscal 2020, the total payments due to our walnut growers will not be determined until the second and/or third quarters of fiscal 2020. We will determine the final prices to be paid to the walnut growers based upon current market prices and other factors such as crop size and export demand. We have estimated the liability to our walnut growers and our walnut inventory costs using currently available information. Any difference between our estimated liability and the actual payments will be determined during the second and/or third quarters of fiscal 2020 and will be recognized in our financial results at that time.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Net Sales

Our net sales increased 6.6% to $217.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to net sales of $204.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Sales volume, which is defined as pounds sold to customers, increased 9.1% in the quarterly comparison. The weighted average sales price per pound decreased approximately 2.3% primarily due to lower selling prices for cashews, pecans and walnuts as a result of lower commodity acquisition costs.

The following table summarizes sales by product type as a percentage of total gross sales. The information is based upon gross sales, rather than net sales, because certain adjustments, such as promotional discounts, are not allocable to product type.

(1)

Sales of branded products were approximately 28% and 39% of total consumer sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, respectively. Fisher branded products were approximately 64% and 70% of branded sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and fiscal 2019, respectively, with branded produce and Squirrel Brand products accounting for the remaining branded product sales.

Net sales in the consumer distribution channel increased $17.7 million, or 12.7%, and sales volume increased 17.4% in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The sales volume increase was driven by increased sales of private brand snack nuts and trail mixes from distribution gains with existing and new customers. Sales volume for Fisher snack nuts decreased 8.0%, primarily as a result of lost airline and club business. Sales volume for Fisher recipe nuts decreased 30.3% mainly due to lost distribution for some items due to the continued expansion of private brand recipe nut offerings at a major customer. Sales volume of Orchard Valley Harvest produce products increased 12.4% due to increased sales with existing customers. The 40.3% sales volume increase of Southern Style Nuts was due to distribution gains with new grocery customers.

Net sales and sales volume in the commercial ingredients distribution channel were relatively unchanged in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

 

20


Net sales in the contract packaging distribution channel decreased by 13.9% in dollars and 13.0% in sales volume in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The decline in sales volume mainly came from the reduction in unit ounce weights implemented by a contract packaging customer for its entire product line and reduced promotional activity by another costumer.

Gross Profit

Gross profit increased by $9.3 million, or 28.2%, to $42.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Our gross profit margin, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 19.4% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to 16.1% for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The increases in gross profit and gross profit margin were mainly attributable to the sales volume increase discussed above, as well as lower commodity acquisition costs for cashews, pecans and walnuts.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased by $0.3 million to $23.2 million. Operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased to 10.6% of net sales from 11.2% of net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 due primarily to a higher net sales base.

Selling expenses were $14.1 million for both periods presented. An increase of $0.7 million in payroll related and incentive compensation expense was offset by a decrease in transportation costs of $0.5 million due to decreasing costs per shipped pound and a decrease in advertising expense of $0.3 million due to a decrease in radio advertising.

Administrative expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 were $9.1 million, an increase of $0.2 million, or 2.8%, from the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase was driven primarily by a $0.5 million increase in payroll related and incentive compensation expense, which was offset by a decrease of $0.2 million in amortization expense related to the intangible assets acquired in the Acquisition.

Income from Operations

Due to the factors discussed above, income from operations increased to $19.1 million, or 8.8% of net sales, for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 from $10.1 million, or 4.9% of net sales, for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was $0.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $0.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in interest expense was due to lower average debt levels.

Rental and Miscellaneous Expense, Net

Net rental and miscellaneous expense was $0.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $0.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Other Expense

Other expense consists of pension related expenses other than the service cost component. Other expense was $0.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $0.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

 

21


Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was $4.6 million, or 26.4% of income before income taxes (“Effective Tax Rate”), for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $1.8 million, or 21.3% of income before income taxes, for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The effective tax rate was lower in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 primarily due to an income tax benefit recognized for an increase in the deferred state tax rate caused by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The decrease in the federal tax rate reduced the federal benefit impacting our state tax rate. This income tax benefit reduced our first quarter fiscal 2019 effective tax rate approximately 5.8%.

Net Income

Net income was $12.9 million, or $1.13 per common share basic and $1.12 per share diluted, for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to $6.6 million, or $0.58 per common share basic and $0.57 per share diluted, for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

General

The primary uses of cash are to fund our current operations, fulfill contractual obligations, pursue our Strategic Plan through growing our branded and private label nut programs and repay indebtedness. Also, various uncertainties could result in additional uses of cash. The primary sources of cash are results of operations and availability under our Credit Agreement, dated February 7, 2008 and subsequently amended most recently in November 2017 (as amended, the “Credit Facility”), that provides a revolving loan commitment and letter of credit subfacility. We anticipate that expected net cash flow generated from operations and amounts available pursuant to the Credit Facility will be sufficient to fund our operations for the next twelve months. Our available credit under our Credit Facility has allowed us to devote more funds to promote our products (especially our Fisher and Orchard Valley Harvest brands), consummate strategic business acquisitions such as the fiscal 2018 acquisition of the Squirrel Brand business, reinvest in the Company through capital expenditures, develop new products, pay cash dividends the past eight years and explore other growth strategies outlined in our Strategic Plan.

Cash flows from operating activities have historically been driven by net income but are also significantly influenced by inventory requirements, which can change based upon fluctuations in both quantities and market prices of the various nuts and nut products we buy and sell. Current market trends in nut prices and crop estimates also impact nut procurement.

The following table sets forth certain cash flow information for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively (dollars in thousands):

Operating Activities Net cash provided by operating activities was $22.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $15.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The increase in operating cash flow was due primarily to a $6.3 million increase in net income driven by increased sales and improved profitability.

Total inventories were $156.5 million at September 26, 2019, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 0.4%, from the inventory balance at June 27, 2019, and a decrease of $24.6 million, or 13.6%, from the inventory balance at September 27, 2018. The decrease in inventories at September 26, 2019 compared to September 27, 2018 was primarily attributable to lower acquisition costs for pecans, cashews and walnuts in addition to lower quantities on hand for finished goods.

Raw nut and dried fruit input stocks, some of which are classified as work in process, increased by 2.9 million pounds, or 6.5%, at September 26, 2019 compared to September 27, 2018. The increase was attributable mainly to increased quantities of inshell peanuts on hand, which was partially offset by decreases in the quantity on hand of

 

22


most other major nut types. The weighted average cost per pound of raw nut and dried fruit input stocks on hand at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased 25.9% compared to the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2019 due to lower acquisition costs for pecans, cashews and walnuts and a shift in product mix to peanuts.

Investing Activities Cash used in investing activities, primarily all for capital expenditures, was $3.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $4.8 million for the same period last year. We expect total capital expenditures for new equipment, facility upgrades, and food safety enhancements for fiscal 2020 to be approximately $15.0 million. Absent any material acquisitions or other significant investments, we believe that cash on hand, combined with cash provided by operations and borrowings available under the Credit Facility, will be sufficient to meet the cash requirements for planned capital expenditures.

Financing Activities Cash used in financing activities was $20.1 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $11.1 million for the same period last year. Net short-term borrowings under our Credit Facility were $16.0 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to net borrowings of $20.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The decrease in short term borrowings under our Credit Facility was primarily due to an increase in net income and operating cash flows. The dividends paid in fiscal 2020 to date were approximately $5.2 million more than the same period of fiscal 2019.

Real Estate Matters

In August 2008, we completed the consolidation of our Chicago-based facilities into the Elgin Site. The Elgin Site includes both an office building and a warehouse. We are currently attempting to find additional tenants for the available space in the office building at the Elgin Site. Until additional tenant(s) are found, we will not receive the benefit of rental income associated with such space. Approximately 63% of the rentable area in the office building is currently vacant. Approximately 29% of the rentable area has not been built-out. There can be no assurance that we will be able to lease the unoccupied space and further capital expenditures will likely be necessary to lease the remaining space.

Financing Arrangements

On February 7, 2008, we entered into the Credit Facility with a bank group (the “Bank Lenders”) providing a $117.5 million revolving loan commitment and letter of credit subfacility. Also on February 7, 2008, we entered into a Loan Agreement with an insurance company (the “Mortgage Lender”) providing us with two term loans, one in the amount of $36.0 million (“Tranche A”) and the other in the amount of $9.0 million (“Tranche B”), for an aggregate amount of $45.0 million (the “Mortgage Facility”).

On November 29, 2017, we entered into the Consent and Ninth Amendment to our Credit Agreement which provided lender consent to incur unsecured debt in connection with our acquisition of the assets of the Squirrel Brand business, and for the acquisition of the Squirrel Brand business to constitute a “Permitted Acquisition” under the terms of the Credit Facility. The Ninth Amendment also modified our collateral reporting requirements.

The Credit Facility, as most recently amended in November 2017, is secured by substantially all of our assets other than machinery and equipment, real property, and fixtures and matures on July 7, 2021. The Mortgage Facility is secured by mortgages on essentially all of our owned real property located in Elgin, Illinois, Gustine, California and Garysburg, North Carolina (the “Encumbered Properties”).

Credit Facility

At our election, borrowings under the Credit Facility currently accrue interest at either (i) a rate determined pursuant to the administrative agent’s prime rate plus an applicable margin determined by reference to the amount of loans which may be advanced under the borrowing base calculation, ranging from 0.25% to 0.75% or (ii) a rate based upon the London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) plus an applicable margin based upon the borrowing base calculation, ranging from 1.25% to 1.75%.

At September 26, 2019, the weighted average interest rate for the Credit Facility was 4.7%. The terms of the Credit Facility contain covenants that, among other things, require us to restrict investments, indebtedness, acquisitions and certain sales of assets and limit annual cash dividends or distributions, transactions with affiliates, redemptions of capital stock and prepayment of indebtedness (if such prepayment, among other things, is of a subordinate debt). If loan availability under the borrowing base calculation falls below $25.0 million, we will be required to maintain a

 

23


specified fixed charge coverage ratio, tested on a monthly basis, until loan availability equals or exceeds $25.0 million for three consecutive months. All cash received from customers is required to be applied against the Credit Facility. The Bank Lenders have the option to accelerate and demand immediate repayment of our obligations under the Credit Facility in the event of default on the payments required under the Credit Facility, a change in control in the ownership of the Company, non-compliance with the financial covenant or upon the occurrence of other defaults by us under the Credit Facility (including a default under the Mortgage Facility). As of September 26, 2019, we were in compliance with all covenants under the Credit Facility and we currently expect to be in compliance with the financial covenant in the Credit Facility for the foreseeable future. At September 26, 2019, we had $97.5 million of available credit under the Credit Facility. If this entire amount were borrowed at September 26, 2019, we would still be in compliance with all restrictive covenants under the Credit Facility.

Mortgage Facility

The Mortgage Facility matures on March 1, 2023. On March 1, 2018 the interest rate on the Mortgage Facility was fixed at 4.25% per annum for the remainder of the term. Monthly principal payments on Tranche A in the amount of $0.2 million commenced on June 1, 2008. Monthly principal payments on Tranche B in the amount of $0.1 million commenced on June 1, 2008.

The terms of the Mortgage Facility contain covenants that require us to maintain a specified net worth of $110.0 million and maintain the Encumbered Properties. The Mortgage Lender is entitled to require immediate repayment of our obligations under the Mortgage Facility in the event we default in the payments required under the Mortgage Facility, non-compliance with the covenants or upon the occurrence of certain other defaults by us under the Mortgage Facility. As of September 26, 2019, we were in compliance with all covenants under the Mortgage Facility.

Selma Property

In September 2006, we sold our Selma, Texas properties (the “Selma Properties”) to two related party partnerships for $14.3 million and are leasing them back. The selling price was determined by an independent appraiser to be the fair market value which also approximated our carrying value. The lease for the Selma Properties has a ten-year term at a fair market value rent with three five-year renewal options. In September 2015, we exercised two of the five-year renewal options which extended the lease term to September 2026. The lease extension also reduced the monthly lease payment on the Selma Properties, beginning in September 2016, to reflect then current market conditions. One five-year renewal option remains. Also, we have an option to purchase the Selma Properties from the owner at 95% (100% in certain circumstances) of the then fair market value, but not less than the original $14.3 million purchase price. The provisions of the arrangement are not eligible for sale-leaseback accounting, and the $14.3 million was recorded as a debt obligation. No gain or loss was recorded on the Selma Properties transaction. As of September 26, 2019, $9.9 million of the debt obligation was outstanding.

Squirrel Brand Seller-Financed Note

In November 2017 we completed the Squirrel Brand acquisition. The acquisition was financed by a combination of cash (drawn under the Credit Facility) and a three-year seller-financed note for $11.5 million (“Promissory Note”). The principal owner and seller of the Squirrel Brand business was subsequently appointed as an executive officer of the Company and is considered a related party. The Promissory Note is unsecured, bears interest at 5.5% per annum and is payable in equal monthly principal payments of $0.3 million, plus interest, which began in January 2018. Upon an event of default, as defined in the Promissory Note, the interest rate increases to 7.5% until such event of default is cured. We can pre-pay the Promissory Note at any time during the three-year period without penalty. At September 26, 2019, the principal amount of $4.5 million of the Promissory Note was outstanding.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

Some of the statements in this report are forward-looking (including statements concerning our expectations regarding market risk and the impact of the purchasing decisions of major customers). These forward-looking statements may be generally identified by the use of forward-looking words and phrases such as “will”, “intends”, “may”, “believes”, “anticipates”, “should” and “expects” and are based on the Company’s current expectations or beliefs concerning future events and involve risks and uncertainties. Consequently, the Company’s actual results could differ materially. The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly or otherwise revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or other factors that affect the subject of these statements, except where expressly required to do so by law. Among the factors that could cause results to differ materially from current expectations are: (i) the risks associated with our vertically integrated model with respect to pecans, peanuts and walnuts; (ii) sales activity for the Company’s products, such as a decline in sales (of branded products, private label products or otherwise) to one or more key customers, a change in product mix to lower price products, a decline in sales of private brand products or changing consumer preferences, including a shift from higher margin products to lower margin products; (iii) changes in the availability and costs of raw materials and the impact of fixed price commitments with customers; (iv) the ability to pass on price increases to customers if commodity costs rise and the potential for a negative impact on demand for, and sales of, our products from price increases; (v) the ability to measure and estimate bulk inventory, fluctuations in the value and quantity of the Company’s nut inventories due to fluctuations in the market prices of nuts and bulk inventory estimation adjustments, respectively; (vi) the Company’s ability to appropriately respond to, or lessen the negative impact of, competitive and pricing pressures; (vii) losses associated with product recalls, product contamination, food labeling or other food safety issues, or the potential for lost sales or product liability if customers lose confidence in the safety of the Company’s products or in nuts or nut products in general, or are harmed as a result of using the Company’s products; (viii) the ability of the Company to control expenses, such as compensation, medical and administrative expense; (ix) the potential negative impact of government regulations and laws and regulations pertaining to food safety, such as the Food Safety Modernization Act; (x) uncertainty in economic conditions, including the potential for economic downturn; (xi) the timing and occurrence (or nonoccurrence) of other transactions and events which may be subject to circumstances beyond the Company’s control; (xii) the adverse effect of labor unrest or disputes, litigation and/or legal settlements, including potential unfavorable outcomes exceeding any amounts accrued; (xiii) losses due to significant disruptions at any of our production or processing facilities; (xiv) the inability to implement our Strategic Plan, including growing our branded and private brand product sales and expanding into alternative sales channels; (xv) technology disruptions or failures; (xvi) the inability to protect the Company’s brand value, intellectual property or avoid intellectual property disputes; and (xvii) the Company’s ability to manage successfully the price gap between its private brand products and those of its branded competitors.
