CEO Perspective

“We made significant progress in 2018 as we implemented our key strategic initiatives which position us well for future growth,” said Chairman and CEO Pietro Satriano. “As part of our actions to drive profitability, we expanded sales of our private brands, implemented operational improvements in our merchandising and supply chain functions, and maintained strong cost discipline throughout the organization. Our differentiated product innovation, e-commerce and team-based selling strategies continue to give us a competitive advantage and contributed to us exiting the year with independent restaurant case growth exceeding our 4% exit rate target. We are confident in our ability to deliver improved growth and operating profitability in 2019."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2018 Results

Total case volume decreased 0.8% from the prior year while independent restaurant case volume increased 3.9%, all on an organic basis. Since all previously closed acquisitions are now included in total case volume, there was no difference between total and organic case volumes in the quarter. The decrease in total case volume was primarily driven by the previously discussed exits of select chain customers.

Net sales of $6.0 billion for the quarter increased 0.8% from the prior year, primarily due to year-over-year inflation in beef and grocery items and favorable product mix changes that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume.

Gross profit of $1.1 billion increased $17 million, or 1.6%, from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 18.1%. Adjusted Gross profit was $1.1 billion, a 1.7% increase from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 18.1%.

Operating expenses were $922 million, an increase of 4.9% from the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by higher wage, fuel and acquisition-related costs that were partially offset by the positive impact of expense control initiatives. Adjusted Operating expenses for the quarter were $800 million, a 1.9% increase from the prior year, primarily driven by higher wage and fuel costs that were partially offset by the positive impact of expense control initiatives.

Income before income taxes was $132 million, a $5 million decrease from the prior year.

Net income was $100 million, down $156 million from $256 million in the prior year. Fourth quarter fiscal 2017 benefited from the changes in the U.S. federal income tax code that resulted in a net tax benefit of $119 million for that quarter compared to a tax expense of $32 million for fourth quarter fiscal 2018. Adjusted EBITDA of $297 million increased $7 million, or 2.4%, compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS was $0.46 and Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.56.

Fiscal Year 2018 Results

Total case volume decreased 1.2% from the prior year, with organic case volume declining 1.6%. Independent restaurant case volume increased 3.8%, including 3.1% organic growth. The decrease in total case volume was driven primarily by the previously discussed exits of select chain customers. Sales from acquisitions made in 2017 increased Net sales by approximately 0.4%.

Net sales of $24.2 billion increased 0.1% from the prior year, primarily due to year-over-year inflation in beef and grocery items and the impact of acquisitions made in 2017 that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume.

Gross profit of $4.3 billion increased $88 million, or 2.1%, from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives and a reduction in our year-over-year last-in, first-out (LIFO) expense that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.8%. Adjusted Gross profit was $4.3 billion, a 1.7% increase from the prior year, primarily driven by margin expansion initiatives and the impact of acquisitions made in 2017 that were partially offset by the decrease in case volume. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 17.8%.

Operating expenses were $3.6 billion, an increase of 0.5% from the prior year. The increase was primarily driven by higher wage, fuel and acquisition-related costs that were partially offset by lower amortization expense resulting from the full amortization of an intangible asset and the positive impact of expense control initiatives. Adjusted Operating expenses were $3.2 billion, a 1.1% increase from the prior year, primarily driven by higher wage and fuel costs that were partially offset by the positive impact of expense control initiatives.

Income before income taxes was $496 million, a $92 million increase from the prior year.

Net income for fiscal year 2018 was $407 million, down $37 million from $444 million in the prior year primarily as a result of the Gross profit, Operating expense and income tax factors discussed above. Adjusted EBITDA of $1,103 million increased $45 million, or 4.3% compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS was $1.87 and Adjusted Diluted EPS was $2.03.

Cash Flow and Capital Transactions

Net cash provided by operating activities for fiscal year 2018 was $609 million, net of a combined $102 million of increased cash income taxes and an incremental, voluntary pension plan contribution. In fiscal year 2017, the company paid $11 million of cash income taxes compared to $78 million in fiscal year 2018. Primarily as a result of working capital investments to build safety stock, the increase in cash income taxes and the incremental, voluntary pension plan contribution, Net cash provided by operating activities decreased $140 million from the prior year. Cash capital expenditures for fiscal year 2018 totaled $235 million, an increase of $14 million from the prior year, primarily due to an increase in capital spending for buildings and equipment.

Net Debt at the end of fiscal year 2018 was $3.4 billion, a decrease of $286 million versus the end of fiscal year 2017. The ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA was 3.0x at the end of fiscal year 2018, down from 3.4x at the end of fiscal year 2017.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2019

For fiscal year 2019, the company expects total case volume growth of 1-2%, Adjusted EBITDA growth of at least 5% and Adjusted Diluted EPS of $2.15-$2.25. The company also expects cash capital expenditures of $260-$270 million, while fleet capital leases are expected to be approximately $75 million. Interest expense is expected to be $170-$175 million, Depreciation and amortization expenses are expected to be $340-$350 million and our adjusted effective income tax rate is expected to be 25-26%.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release which are not historical in nature are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements often include words such as “believe,” “expect,” “project,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “outlook,” “estimate,” “target,” “seek,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “forecast,” “mission,” “strive,” “goal,” or similar expressions and are based upon various assumptions and our experience in the industry, as well as historical trends, current conditions, and expected future developments. However, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results and there are a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements, including, among others: cost inflation/deflation and commodity volatility; competition; reliance on third party suppliers; interruption of product supply or increases in product costs; customer retention and changes in our relationships with group purchasing organizations; our ability to achieve increased sales to independent restaurants; successful consummation and integration of acquisitions; realization of the expected benefits from our cost savings initiatives; fuel shortages or volatility in fuel costs; industry and general economic factors affecting consumer confidence and buying habits; changes in consumer eating habits and preferences; our reputation in the industry; labor relations and costs; workforce attraction and retention; pricing and cost structures; tax law and regulation changes; environmental, occupational health and safety, and food safety and other governmental regulation compliance; product liability claims; litigation risk; technology disruptions and our ability to implement new technologies; cybersecurity incidents; management of retirement benefits and pension liabilities; business disruptions caused by extreme weather conditions and other catastrophic events; adequate protection of our brand/trade names; risks associated with intellectual property, including potential infringement; our level of indebtedness and restrictions placed upon us under our debt agreements; and potential interest rate increases.

For a detailed discussion of these risks, uncertainties and other factors, see the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2017, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2018. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). However, Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures regarding our operational performance. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP.

We use Adjusted Gross profit and Adjusted Operating expenses to focus on period-over-period changes in our business and believe this information is helpful to investors. Adjusted Gross profit is Gross profit adjusted to remove the impact of the LIFO inventory reserve changes. Adjusted Operating expenses are Operating expenses adjusted to exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance, as well other items noted in our debt agreements.

We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance because they exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. EBITDA is Net income, plus Interest expense-net, Income tax (benefit)/provision, and Depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for (1) Restructuring charges and Tangible asset impairments; (2) Share-based compensation expense; (3) the non-cash impact of LIFO reserve adjustments; (4) pension settlements; (5) Business transformation costs; and (6) other includes gains, losses or charges as specified in the agreements governing our indebtedness.

We use Net Debt to review the liquidity of our operations. Net Debt is defined as total debt net of total Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash remaining on the balance sheet as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. We believe that Net Debt is a useful financial metric to assess our ability to pursue business opportunities and investments. Net Debt is not a measure of our liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Cash Flows Provided by Operations or Cash Flows Used in Financing Activities.

We believe that Adjusted Net income is a useful measure of operating performance for both management and investors because it excludes items that are not reflective of our core operating performance and provides an additional view of our operating performance including depreciation, amortization, interest expense, and Income taxes on a consistent basis from period to period. Adjusted Net income is Net income excluding such items as Restructuring benefits and charges, tangible asset impairments, Share-based compensation expense, the non-cash impacts of LIFO reserve adjustments, Business transformation costs (costs associated with the redesign of systems and processes), and other items, and adjusted for the tax effect of the exclusions and discrete tax items. We believe that Adjusted Net income may be used by investors, analysts, and other interested parties to facilitate period-over-period comparisons and provides additional clarity as to how factors and trends impact our operating performance.

We use Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, which is calculated by adjusting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, Diluted Earnings per Share, by excluding the same items excluded in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA to the extent that each such item was included in the applicable GAAP financial measure. We believe the presentation of Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because the measurement excludes amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. We also believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because these metrics are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in our industry.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance as well as our performance relative to our competitors as they assist in highlighting trends, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (d) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures, and (e) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and employees. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used in connection with certain covenants and restricted activities under our debt agreements. We also believe these and similar non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry.

We caution readers that our definitions of Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net income and Adjusted Diluted EPS may not be calculated in the same manner as similar measures used by other companies. Definitions and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the schedules attached to this press release. We have not, however, provided a reconciliation of our full fiscal year 2019 Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook because we are not able to accurately estimate all the adjustments on a forward-looking basis and such items could have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results as a result of their variability.
