Under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 totaled $65.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, representing an increase of 172% as compared to GAAP net income of $24.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2010.The Company’s non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 increased 147% to $71.5 million, from non-GAAP net income of $28.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. Second quarter fiscal 2011 non-GAAP net income excludes pre-tax items of: $1.9 million in Van Houtte transaction-related expenses, $11.7 million in amortization of identifiable intangibles related to the Company’s acquisitions, $0.4 million in legal and accounting expenses related to the SEC inquiry and pending litigation, and a $3.0 million tax benefit related to the reversal of certain non-deductible acquisition-related expenses incurred in prior quarters which are now deemed deductible in accordance with recently enacted tax regulations. Second quarter fiscal 2010 non-GAAP net income excludes pre-tax items of: $4.8 million in transaction-related expenses for the Diedrich acquisition and $3.1 million in amortization of identifiable intangibles related to the Company’s prior acquisitions.On the same basis of presentation, GMCR’s non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased 131% to $0.48 in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from $0.21 in the second quarter of fiscal 2010.‘We believe healthy post-holiday in-store brewer inventory levels and positive word of mouth from enthusiastic Keurig owners combined to help drive a very strong fiscal second quarter for GMCR,’ said Lawrence J. Blanford, GMCR’s president and CEO.The Keurig® Single-Cup Brewing system brews a perfect cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage in under one minute at the touch of a button.‘We believe we are in the early stages of potential Keurig system adoption in North America and continue to work to scale our operations, processes and workforce to meet both the current and expected demands of the business,’ said Blanford. ‘The addition of leading, nationally recognized brands like Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks and Swiss Miss to the Keurig Single-Cup Brewing system expands customer choice within the system, fuels new excitement by current Keurig owners and users, raises system awareness, and has the potential to attract new consumers to the system.’Fiscal 2011 Second Quarter Financial Review*Approximately 82% of consolidated net sales in the second quarter were from the Keurig brewing system and its recurring K-Cup® portion pack sales, including Keurig-related accessory sales.Net sales from K-Cup® portion packs totaled $411.8 million in the quarter, up 94%, or $199.1 million, over the same period in 2010.In response to rising green coffee costs and increases in other input costs, in September 2010 the Company announced a price increase on all K-Cup® portion packs beginning on October 11, 2010. The price increase was fully implemented across all channels as of February 2011. In the second quarter of fiscal 2011, the price increase improved net sales by approximately 10.3% over what net sales would have been if calculated based on the pricing for K-Cup® portion packs in effect during the prior year period.Net sales from Keurig brewers and accessories totaled $116.2 million in the quarter, up 86%, or $53.8 million, from the prior year period.Supporting continued growth in K-Cup® demand, GMCR sold 1.2 million Keurig brewers during the second quarter of fiscal 2011. This brewer shipment number does not account for consumer returns to retailers. We estimate that GMCR brewer shipments represented approximately 91% of total brewers shipped with Keurig technology in the period.The acquisition of Van Houtte completed on December 17, 2010 contributed $100.5 million to consolidated net sales, after eliminating the effect on consolidated net sales of K-Cup® portion pack sales to Keurig by Van Houtte and royalties recorded by Keurig from Van Houtte.Second quarter fiscal 2011 gross margin was 37.5% of total net sales compared to 33.5% for the corresponding quarter in fiscal 2010.The Company increased its GAAP operating income by 198%, to $119.6 million, in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 as compared to $40.1 million in the year ago quarter.GMCR’s second quarter fiscal 2011 non-GAAP operating income of $133.6 million increased 178% over non-GAAP operating income of $48.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. Non-GAAP operating income represented 20.6% of net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 and 14.9% of net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2010.The Company’s tax rate for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was 35.5% as compared to 38.6% in the prior year quarter reflecting a lower corporate income tax rate in Canada from the Van Houtte acquisition and due to the recent Internal Revenue Service Revenue Procedure 2011-29 which allows taxpayers to deduct 70% of the previously non-deductible success-based fees incurred in connection with certain acquisitions.Diluted weighted average shares outstanding increased 7% to 147.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from 137.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010 primarily due to the issuance of 8.6 million shares of common stock to Luigi Lavazza S.p.A in a private placement on September 28, 2010.Balance Sheet HighlightsCash and short-term cash investments were $64.5 million at March 26, 2011, up from $62.9 million at December 25, 2010.Accounts receivable increased 77% year-over-year to $226.8 million at March 26, 2011, from $128.2 million at March 27, 2010, reflecting continuing sales growth.Inventories were $300.8 million at March 26, 2011 including $29.5 million of Van Houtte-related inventories. This compares to $262.5 million at September 25, 2010.Debt outstanding increased to $1.060 billion at March 26, 2011 from $354.5 million at September 25, 2010 primarily as a result of the Company’s acquisition of Van Houtte on December 17, 2010.The Company is pursuing a sale of the Filterfresh U.S.-based coffee services business portion of its Van Houtte acquisition, which is classified as ‘assets available for sale’ in the Company’s financial statements, and expects to use any proceeds from an ultimate sale to reduce debt.Business Outlook and Other Forward-Looking Information*Company Estimates for Fiscal Year 2011The Company provided the following revised estimates for its fiscal year 2011.Total consolidated net sales growth of 82% to 87%, up from previous net sales growth guidance of 75% to 80%.The Company increased its 2011 non-GAAP earnings per diluted share range to $1.43 to $1.50 per diluted share from $1.19 to $1.29 per share, excluding any acquisition-related transaction expenses; legal and accounting expenses related to the SEC inquiry, the Company’s internal investigation and pending litigation; amortization of identifiable intangibles related to the Company’s acquisitions; deferred financing costs; and, foreign exchange impact of hedging the risk associated with the Canadian dollar purchase price of the Van Houtte acquisition.Capital expenditures for fiscal 2011 in the range of $275 million to $305 million, up from previous capital expenditure guidance of $245 million to $290 million.Company Estimates for Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2011The Company also provided its first estimates for its third quarter of fiscal 2011:Total consolidated net sales growth of 90% to 95%.Non-GAAP earnings per share in the range of $0.34 to $0.38 per diluted share excluding any acquisition-related transaction expenses; legal and accounting expenses related to the SEC inquiry, the Company’s internal investigation and pending litigation; deferred financing costs; and, amortization of identifiable intangibles related to the Company’s acquisitions.*All comparisons to prior periods reflect restated financial results for those periods as reported in Annual Report on Form 10-K filed December 9, 2010. A complete reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided with this announcement.Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresIn addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides non-GAAP operating results that exclude certain charges or credits such as acquisition-related transaction expenses, legal and accounting-related expenses associated with the SEC inquiry, the Company’s internal investigation and pending litigation, foreign exchange impact of hedging the risk associated with the Canadian dollar purchase price of the Van Houtte acquisition, and non-cash related items such as amortization of identifiable intangibles, each of which include adjustments to show the tax impact of excluding these items. These amounts are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. The Company’s management believes that these measures provide investors with transparency by helping illustrate the underlying financial and business trends relating to the Company’s results of operations and financial condition and comparability between current and prior periods. Management uses the measures to establish and monitor budgets and operational goals and to evaluate the performance of the Company.

Sagicor sets $60 million Sigma target

first_imgSpeaking as patron at yesterday’s launch of the 19th annual Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run, Olympian Yohan Blake called for support for the charity event.Sagicor has set out to raise $60 million from the event for three beneficiaries and is hoping to attract at least 25,000 participants.This year’s Run/Walk is slated for Sunday, February 19 at 7:30 a.m. under the theme ‘Run for the Fun, Donate for the Cause’.The event was launched at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston, where Blake gave an emotional appeal.”I like to speak from the heart because that’s where my blessings come from, and when Sagicor asked me to do this, I answered like Schools’ Challenge Quiz, I had to do it,” Blake said.Blake believes this year’s beneficiaries, Spanish Town Hospital’s Paediatric Unit, the Mandeville Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and the Bethlehem Home, operated by Missionaries of the Poor should be given full support.”It’s a miracle that God is working through Sagicor to have a heart for these kids, because most of these children can hardly walk. I want everyone to come out, because this is going to be a record statement run … . We are going to go out there and we are going to raise more than that Jamaican $60 million,” he underlined.Blake, along with international recording artiste Tessanne Chin, and Missionaries of the Poor founder, Father Richard Ho Lung are supporting the event as patrons in a bid to help raise the funds for the respective organisations.Minister of Health Christopher Tufton, while lauding the Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run’s 19-year existence, said they had developed a following of interested persons who participated and contributed to the worthy cause.Chairman of Sagicor Group Jamaica and Sagicor Foun-dation, R. Danny Williams, expressed gratitude to the events participants and sponsors, while Richard Byles, president and CEO of Sagicor Group Jamaica, challenged Jamaicans to continue throwing their support behind the event.Meanwhile, donations can be made via pledge forms.
