"We delivered strong net sales during the second quarter, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of net sales growth compared with the prior-year periods — demonstrating the resilience of our iconic brand. Our net sales increased by $70 million, resulting from necessary pricing actions — generating growth across most product categories," said Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

"We continue to operate in one of the most volatile and uncertain macroeconomic environments in recent history. As a result, the cost of product sold increased by $100 million, driven by broad-based inflationary, supply chain, and logistical headwinds. Despite these headwinds, we generated positive earnings — all while maintaining our debt balance in line with last year, generating strong cash flow from operations and continuing our dividend payout."

Mr. Abu-Ghazaleh added, "As we move forward, I am confident in our team's dedication to drive profitable sales. We plan to do that by focusing on our sustainable growth strategy and delivering against its key elements — organic expansion, product innovation, investments in technology, best-in-class customer relationships and sustainability."

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 increased $70.3 million, or 6%, compared with the prior-year period. Net sales benefited from inflation-justified price increases. Partially offsetting the increase was the negative impact of fluctuations in exchange rates, primarily versus the Japanese yen and euro compared with the prior-year period. The negative impact of fluctuations in exchange rates was partially mitigated by our foreign currency hedges.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was $80.7 million compared with $110.0 million in the prior-year period. Despite higher net sales, gross profit continued to be negatively impacted by multilayered cost pressures compared with the prior-year period. Higher costs across the board including costs of packaging materials, fertilizers, ocean and inland freight, fuel and labor, offset our higher net sales.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2022 was $34.3 million compared with $59.3 million in the prior-year period, and Adjusted operating income(3) was $33.4 million compared with $60.6 million in the prior-year period. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to lower gross profit, partially offset by lower administrative and advertising expenses.

Provision for income taxes for the second quarter of 2022 was $4.9 million compared with $4.8 million in the prior-year period. Provision for income taxes in the prior-year period reflected the positive impact of return-to-provision adjustments, including a $0.8 million benefit relating to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

FDP net income(1) for the second quarter was $21.2 million compared with $47.2 million in the prior-year period and Adjusted FDP net income(3) was $20.7 million compared with $46.8 million in the prior-year period.

Adjusted EBITDA(3) for the second quarter was $55.7 million compared with $83.6 million in the prior-year period, and corresponding Adjusted EBITDA margin(3) was 4.6% compared with 7.3% in the prior-year period.

(1)

"FDP net income" as referenced throughout this release is defined as Net income attributable to Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc.

(2)

"Diluted EPS" represents diluted earnings per share and is calculated as FDP net income divided by diluted weighted average shares.

Second Quarter 2022 Business Segment Performance

Fresh and Value-Added Products

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 increased by $58.4 million, or approximately 9%, compared with the prior-year period. The increase in net sales was driven by higher pricing in most product categories. Sales volume remained in line with the prior-year period.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was $49.4 million compared with $58.3 million in the prior-year period. The decrease in gross profit from the prior-year period was primarily driven by non-tropical fruit products, which were negatively impacted by lack of availability of third-party shipping capacity on certain shipping routes, and avocados due to market volatility. Additionally, despite higher net sales, gross profit continued to be negatively impacted by ongoing cost pressures, which resulted in higher per unit production and distribution costs, including ocean and inland freight. As a result, gross margin decreased to 6.7% compared with 8.7% in the prior-year period.

Gross profit in the fresh and value-added products segment included $1.6 million of other product-related charges in the second quarter of 2021, primarily comprised of a $1.3 million inventory write-off incurred in the Middle East. There were no other product-related charges in the second quarter of 2022.

Banana

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 decreased by $5.1 million compared with the prior-year period. The decrease in net sales was primarily driven by lower sales volume and the negative impact of fluctuations in exchange rates in Asia.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was $22.2 million compared with $48.1 million in the prior-year period. The decrease in gross profit was primarily driven by higher per unit distribution costs, including ocean and inland freight, and higher production costs. As a result of these factors, gross margin decreased to 5.3% compared with 11.3% in the prior-year period.

Other Products and Services

Net sales of other products and services increased by $17.0 million, or 42%, compared with the prior-year period, mainly due to higher net sales of third-party freight services. The Company's fleet of vessels has enabled the expansion of commercial cargo services, which are benefiting from elevated shipping rates and demand due to market logistical constraints.

Gross profit increased by $5.5 million as a result of higher net sales of third-party freight services. Gross margin increased to 15.6% from 8.9%.

Cash Flows

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first six months of 2022 was $95.1 million compared with $139.5 million in the prior-year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower net income.

Total Long Term Debt

Total long term debt decreased to $462.7 million at the end of the second quarter of 2022 from $473.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2021.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

On August 2, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share, payable on September 9, 2022 to shareholders of record on August 17, 2022.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company's results are determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Certain information presented in this press release reflects adjustments to GAAP measures such as amounts related to restructuring, asset impairment and other charges (credits), net, gain (loss) on disposal of property, plant and equipment, net, other product-related charges and certain other non-recurring items, if any. These adjustments result in non-GAAP financial measures and are referred to in this press release as Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Gross margin, Adjusted Operating income, Adjusted FDP Net income, and Adjusted Diluted EPS. Management believes these adjustments provide a more comparable analysis of the underlying operating performance of the business.

This press release also includes non-GAAP measures such as EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBITDA margin, and Adjusted EBITDA margin. EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. excluding interest expense, net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and share-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA with additional adjustments for non-recurring items. EBITDA margin represents EBITDA as a percentage of net sales, and Adjusted EBITDA margin represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating income, Adjusted FDP Net income, and Adjusted EBITDA provide the Company with an understanding of the results from the primary operations of its business. The Company uses these metrics because management believes they provide more comparable measures to evaluate period-over-period operating performance since they exclude special items that are not indicative of the Company's core business or operations. These measures may be useful to an investor in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the Company's business because these measures:

  1. Are used by investors to measure a company's comparable operating performance;
  2. Are financial measurements that are used by lenders and other parties to evaluate creditworthiness; and
  3. Are used by the Company's management for various purposes, including as measures of performance of its operating entities, as a basis of strategic planning and forecasting, and in certain cases as a basis for incentive compensation.

Because all companies do not use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Tax effects are calculated in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes, using the same methodology as the GAAP provision of income taxes. Income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments are calculated based on the applicable statutory tax rate for each jurisdiction in which such charges were incurred, except for those items which are non-taxable for which the tax provision (benefit) was calculated at 0%. Certain non-GAAP adjustments were subject to valuation allowances and therefore were calculated at 0%. The quarter and six months ended July 2, 2021 also included a $0.8 million tax benefit associated with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
