BURLINGTON, Mass. and PLANO, Texas, Feb. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Keurig Dr Pepper Inc. (NYSE: KDP) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019 and provided guidance for 2020, the Company's second full fiscal year since the merger between Keurig Green Mountain and Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. created KDP.   

The Company's reported results were significantly impacted by the July 9, 2018 merger.

Commenting on the announcement, Keurig Dr Pepper Chairman and CEO Bob Gamgort stated, "We delivered strong performance for 2019, with underlying net sales growth in all four segments and EPS growth above our merger target range.  In-market performance was healthy across our portfolio, as innovation, marketing and in-store execution drove share growth in key segments.  Free cash flow continued to be robust, enabling us to rapidly delever.  As we look toward 2020, we are increasing our investment behind growth drivers, leading to our expectation that revenue will accelerate above our merger targets, while still delivering double-digit EPS growth. We continue to expect that we will generate our merger target synergies of $600 million and three-year EPS growth within our target range of 15% to 17%."

Full-year 2019 highlights include:

  • Delivered underlying net sales growth of 3.2% and Adjusted diluted EPS growth above the merger target range of 15% - 17%.
  • Achieved merger synergies in excess of the Company's $200 million target and strong productivity, contributing to a 220 basis point increase in Adjusted operating income margin.
  • Drove strong in-market2 performance, with market share growth in the majority of the Company's key categories, including CSDs3, premium unflavored still water, shelf stable fruit drinks and shelf stable apple juice and apple sauce. In coffee, KDP manufactured pod growth was strong, with continued accelerated growth in untracked channels.
  • Added approximately two million new U.S. households to the Keurig single-serve coffee brewing system and launched the highly successful and differentiated K-Duo brewer platform.
  • Entered into a long-term partnership with Nestle USA in late 2019 to manufacture Starbucks branded packaged coffee in K-Cup pods in the U.S. and Canada as well as a long-term master licensing and distribution agreement for McCafé packaged coffee in the U.S., in addition to KDP's existing agreement with McCafé in Canada.
  • Expanded the Company's presence in the energy drink category with the initial launch of A-Shoc energy drinks, in partnership with beverage entrepreneur Lance Collins, with national rollout in 2020.
  • Launched the Company's Drink Well. Do Good. corporate responsibility platform, including ambitious goals in the areas of supply chain, the environment, health & wellbeing and communities.
  • Reduced bank debt by $1.3 billion and structured payables by $531 million, resulting in $1.8 billion of payments, due to strong profitability and ongoing effective working capital management.
  • Improved the Company's management leverage ratio by 0.9x to 4.5x at year-end 2019, versus 5.4x at year-end 2018; since the merger close, KDP's management leverage ratio has improved 1.5x.

2019 Full Year Consolidated Results

Net sales for the full year of 2019 increased 49% to $11.12 billion, compared to $7.44 billion in the year-ago period, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Compared to Adjusted pro forma net sales of $11.02 billion for the full year of 2018, net sales advanced 0.9%, reflecting strong underlying net sales growth of 3.2%, driven by increased volume/mix of 2.6% and higher net price realization of 0.6%. Partially offsetting the underlying net sales growth was the expected unfavorable impact of changes in the Company's Allied Brands portfolio totaling 2.1%, as well as unfavorable foreign currency translation of 0.2%.

KDP in-market performance remained strong for the year, growing dollar consumption and gaining market share in nearly all key categories, including CSDs, premium unflavored still water, shelf stable fruit drinks and shelf stable apple juice and apple sauce. This performance reflected the strength of Dr Pepper and Canada Dry CSDs, CORE Hydration, Snapple Juice drinks and Motts apple juice and apple sauce.  In coffee, retail consumption of single-serve pods manufactured by KDP grew nearly 4% in IRi tracked channels, with higher growth registered in untracked channels, particularly e-commerce and Canada. This performance of tracked and untracked channels is consistent with the Company's pod shipment volume growth of 9%.  In tracked channels, dollar market share of KDP manufactured pods in the US remained strong at 81.7% in the latest 52-week period ending December.

Operating income increased 92% to $2.38 billion, compared to $1.24 billion in the year-ago period, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger, partially offset by the unfavorable year-over-year impact of items affecting comparability.

Adjusted operating income advanced 10.3% to $2.89 billion in 2019, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $2.62 billion in the year-ago period, due to strong productivity and merger synergies, both of which benefitted cost of goods sold and SG&A, and the growth in underlying net sales. These drivers were partially offset by inflation, particularly in packaging and logistics, and the unfavorable comparison versus year-ago to a gain of $22 million from the acquisition of Big Red. Adjusted operating margin grew 220 basis points to 26.0% in 2019.

Net income more than doubled to $1.25 billion in 2019, compared to $0.59 billion in 2018, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger, partially offset by the unfavorable year-over-year impact of items affecting comparability. Diluted EPS grew 66% to $0.88, compared to diluted EPS of $0.53 in 2018.

Adjusted net income advanced 18% to $1.73 billion in 2019, compared to Adjusted pro forma net income of $1.46 billion in 2018. This performance primarily reflected the growth in Adjusted operating income, lower Adjusted interest expense, due to reduced outstanding indebtedness and the benefit of unwinding several interest rate swap contracts, and a lower effective tax rate.  Partially offsetting these positive drivers was the impact of the pre-tax gains recorded in the year-ago period totaling $58 million, comprised of the $24 million distribution from BodyArmor, as well as the $22 million and $12 million gains from the Big Red and Core acquisitions, respectively.  Adjusted diluted EPS increased 17% to $1.22, compared to Adjusted pro forma diluted EPS of $1.04 in 2018, reflecting the growth in Adjusted net income, partially offset by an increase in diluted shares outstanding, largely due to the acquisition of Core Nutrition LLC in November 2018, which was primarily financed through the issuance of additional shares.

KDP generated exceptionally strong free cash flow approximating $2.4 billion in 2019, reflecting growth in operating income and ongoing effective working capital management. This free cash flow performance enabled KDP to reduce bank debt by $1.3 billion and structured payables by $531 million, for a total of $1.8 billion of payments.

2019 Full Year Segment Results

Coffee Systems

Net sales in 2019 totaled $4.23 billion, compared to $4.11 billion in the prior year. Compared to Adjusted pro forma net sales of $4.12 billion in 2018, net sales for 2019 increased 2.8%, reflecting strong volume/mix growth of 6.1%, partially offset by lower net price realization of 2.9% and unfavorable foreign currency translation of 0.4%.

The volume/mix growth of 6.1% reflected strong pod volume growth of 9.0% and brewer volume growth of 8.2%.  The pod volume growth was driven by continued expansion of U.S. households regularly using a Keurig brewer which, in 2019, grew approximately 7% to 30 million households. Partially offsetting the strong volume growth of both pods and brewers was unfavorable pod sales mix.

Operating income increased 4.8% to $1.22 billion in 2019, compared to $1.16 billion in 2018. Adjusted operating income advanced 5.7% to $1.40 billion, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $1.33 billion in the prior year, primarily reflecting continued productivity and merger synergies and the benefit of the net sales growth, partially offset by inflation in input costs and logistics, higher marketing investment and increased general and administrative expenses. Adjusted operating margin advanced 90 basis points versus year-ago to 33.1%.

Packaged Beverages

Net sales in 2019 totaled $4.95 billion, compared to $2.42 billion in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Compared to Adjusted pro forma net sales of $5.07 billion in 2018, net sales for 2019 decreased 2.4%, reflecting underlying net sales growth of 2.3%, driven by net price realization of 1.8% and higher volume/mix of 0.5%, more than offset by the expected unfavorable impact resulting from changes in the Allied Brands portfolio that totaled 4.7%.

Driving the underlying net sales performance for the year were Core, Dr Pepper, Canada Dry and Snapple Juice drinks, as well as contract manufacturing, partially offset by declines in Bai, 7UP and Snapple Tea.

Operating income totaled $757 million in 2019, compared to $257 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Adjusted operating income increased 13% to $783 million in 2019, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $691 million in the prior year. This performance primarily reflected strong productivity and merger synergies, the growth in underlying net sales, including the incremental profit from Core and Big Red resulting from the acquisition of the businesses in 2018, and a network optimization program gain of $30 million on the asset sale-leaseback of three manufacturing facilities. These positive drivers were partially offset by inflation, primarily in input costs and logistics, and the comparison versus year-ago to a $22 million gain related to the acquisition of Big Red.  Adjusted operating margin increased 220 basis points versus year-ago to 15.8%.

Beverage Concentrates

Net sales in 2019 totaled $1.41 billion, compared to $0.67 billion in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Compared to Adjusted pro forma net sales of $1.33 billion in the prior year, net sales in 2019 increased 6.2%, driven by higher net price realization of 5.3% and favorable volume/mix of 1.1%, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation of 0.2%.

Dr Pepper fueled the strong growth in net sales, combined with growth in Canada Dry, A&W and Crush. Shipment volume growth of 0.2% for the segment was led by Dr Pepper and Canada Dry, partially offset by 7UP and other brands. Bottler case sales in 2019 increased 0.6% compared to the prior year.

Operating income totaled $955 million in 2019, compared to $430 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Adjusted operating income increased 11% to $957 million in 2019, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $861 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the benefit of the net sales growth and merger synergies, partially offset by inflation in input costs and logistics. Adjusted operating margin advanced 300 basis points versus year-ago to 67.7%. 

Latin America Beverages

Net sales in 2019 totaled $528 million, compared to $244 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Compared to Adjusted pro forma net sales of $506 million in the prior year, net sales increased 4.3%, reflecting higher net price realization of 4.5%, partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation of 0.2%.

Operating income totaled $85 million in 2019, compared to $29 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the impact of the merger in 2018. Adjusted operating income of $82 million in 2019 was essentially even with Adjusted pro forma operating income of $83 million in the prior year, primarily reflecting the strong net sales growth and productivity savings, offset by inflation in input costs and logistics, higher general and administrative expenses and unfavorable foreign currency transaction impacts. Also impacting the comparison versus the year-ago period was the benefit related to a one-time, $6 million reimbursement from a resin supplier.

Fourth Quarter Consolidated Results

Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 4.3% to $2.93 billion, compared to $2.81 billion in the year-ago period, reflecting higher volume/mix of 5.3% and favorable foreign currency translation of 0.1%, partially offset by unfavorable net price realization of 0.7%.  Excluding the one month of residual sales from BodyArmor prior to its exit in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the impact of foreign currency translation, net sales grew 4.6%.

KDP in-market performance continued to be solid in the fourth quarter of 2019, with dollar consumption and market share advancing in several key categories including CSDs, shelf stable fruit drinks and shelf stable apple sauce. This performance reflected the strength of Dr Pepper and Canada Dry CSDs, Snapple juice drinks and Motts apple sauce.  In coffee, retail consumption of single-serve pods manufactured by KDP grew nearly 4% in IRi tracked channels, with accelerated growth in untracked channels. This performance of tracked and untracked channels is consistent with the Company's pod shipment volume growth of 10%.  In U.S. tracked channels, dollar market share of KDP manufactured pods of 82.0% in the fourth quarter was even with year-ago.

Operating income increased 30% to $713 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $547 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income in the quarter advanced 13% to $813 million, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $720 million in the year-ago period.  This performance reflected strong productivity and synergies, the strong growth in net sales and a network optimization program gain of $30 million on the asset sale-leaseback of three manufacturing facilities in the Packaged Beverages segment.  Partially offsetting these drivers was inflation, primarily in input costs and logistics, and higher marketing. Adjusted operating margin grew 210 basis points versus year-ago to 27.7%.

Net income increased 53% to $406 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $266 million in the year-ago period. Diluted EPS grew 53% to $0.29 in the quarter, compared to diluted EPS of $0.19 in the year-ago period.

Adjusted net income advanced 15% to $491 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $427 million in the year-ago period. This performance primarily reflected the strong growth in Adjusted operating income, partially offset by the unfavorable comparison in the year-ago period of a $21 million pre-tax benefit from the unwinding of several interest rate swap contracts and a $12 million pre-tax gain related to the Core acquisition. Adjusted diluted EPS increased 17% to $0.35, compared to Adjusted pro forma diluted EPS of $0.30 in the year-ago period.

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Coffee Systems

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 4.0% to $1.21 billion, compared to $1.16 billion in the year-ago period, reflecting higher volume/mix of 7.6%, partially offset by lower net price realization of 3.5% and unfavorable foreign currency translation of 0.1%. The volume/mix increase of 7.6% reflected strong pod volume growth of 10.3% and brewer volume growth of 0.9%, the latter of which reflected earlier shipment timing in advance of the holiday season to meet retailer needs. 

Operating income for Coffee Systems increased 11% to $329 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $297 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income in the quarter increased 13% to $370 million, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $328 million in the year-ago period, primarily reflecting the benefit of the strong net sales growth as well as productivity and merger synergies, partially offset by inflation in input costs and logistics and higher marketing investment. Adjusted operating margin increased 240 basis points versus year-ago to 30.6%.

Packaged Beverages

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2019 advanced 2.9% to $1.21 billion, compared to $1.18 billion in the prior year. This performance reflected favorable volume/mix growth of 3.8% and higher net price realization of 0.2%, partially offset by the expected unfavorable impact from the exit of BodyArmor during the fourth quarter of 2018 of 1.1%.

Driving the net sales performance were evian, Bai, Core, Sunkist, Canada Dry and Dr Pepper, as well as contract manufacturing, partially offset by the aforementioned exit of BodyArmor in the prior year and, to a lesser extent, 7UP and Snapple Tea.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 15% to $226 million, compared to $196 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income increased 13% to $232 million, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $206 million in the prior year. This improvement reflected strong productivity and merger synergies, the growth in net sales and the network optimization program gain of $30 million on the asset sale-leaseback of three manufacturing facilities. Partially offsetting these positive drivers were inflation in input costs and logistics, higher marketing and investments in our network. Adjusted operating margin advanced 170 basis points versus year-ago to 19.2% of net sales.

Beverage Concentrates

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 8.0% to $380 million, compared to $352 million in the year-ago period, reflecting favorable volume/mix of 4.2% and higher net price realization of 3.8%.

Dr Pepper continued to fuel the strong growth in net sales for the segment, along with increases for Canada Dry and A&W. Shipment volume growth of 2.3% for the segment was led by Dr Pepper, Canada Dry and A&W, partially offset by 7UP and Sunkist.  Bottler case sales increased 0.4% in the quarter compared to the year-ago period.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 11% to $265 million, compared to $238 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income increased 9.9% to $266 million, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $242 million in the year-ago period, reflecting the benefit of the strong net sales growth and merger synergies, partially offset by higher marketing investments and inflation in input costs. Adjusted operating margin advanced 120 basis points versus year-ago to 70.0%. 

Latin America Beverages

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 11% to $133 million, compared to net sales of $120 million in the year-ago period, reflecting higher net price realization of 4.9%, favorable volume/mix of 2.6% and favorable foreign currency translation of 3.3%.

Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2019 increased 64% to $23 million, compared to $14 million in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income increased 39% to $25 million, compared to Adjusted pro forma operating income of $18 million in the year-ago period. This strong performance reflected the benefit of the net sales growth, partially offset by inflation in input costs and logistics. Adjusted operating margin advanced 380 basis points versus year-ago to 18.8%.

KDP Adjusted Guidance for 2020

KDP expects net sales growth in 2020 to accelerate to 3.0% to 4.0%, versus the Company's merger target of 2.0% to 3.0%.  This momentum is expected to be fueled by investments KDP is planning across the business, including in the areas of innovation, new partnerships, in-store execution, marketing and research and development. 

Adjusted diluted EPS growth in 2020 is expected to be in the range of 13% to 15%, or $1.38 to $1.40 per diluted share, reflecting the opportunities the Company is pursuing and the investments it is planning to make to drive accelerated top-line growth.  Over the three-year period ending 2021, the Company continues to expect to deliver Adjusted diluted EPS growth in the range of 15% to 17%, in line with its merger target.    

Supporting this guidance are the following expectations:

  • Merger synergies of $200 million in 2020, consistent with the Company's long-term merger target for $200 million per year over the 2019-2021 period.
  • Adjusted interest expense is expected to be in the range of $530 million to $545 million, reflecting ongoing deleveraging and some benefit from unwinding interest rate swap contracts.
  • The Adjusted effective tax rate is expected to be in the range of 24.5% to 25.0%.
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding are estimated to be approximately 1,425 million.
  • Management leverage ratio is expected to be in the range of 3.5x to 3.8x at year end 2020.

The Company continues to expect to achieve a management leverage ratio below 3.0x in two to three years from the July 2018 closing of the merger.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained herein are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws and regulations. These forward-looking statements can generally be identified by the use of words such as "outlook," "guidance," "anticipate," "expect," "believe," "could," "estimate," "feel," "forecast," "intend," "may," "plan," "potential," "project," "should," "will," "would," and similar words, phrases or expressions and variations or negatives of these words, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain, such as statements regarding the estimated or anticipated future results of the combined company following the combination of Keurig Green Mountain, Inc. ("KGM") and Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. ("DPSG" and such combination, the "transaction"), the anticipated benefits of the transaction, including estimated synergies and cost savings, the long-term merger targets, and other statements that are not historical facts. These statements are based on the current expectations of our management and are not predictions of actual performance.

These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties regarding the company's business and the transaction and actual results may differ materially. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (i) the impact the significant additional debt incurred in connection with the transaction may have on our ability to operate our business, (ii) risks relating to the integration of the KGM and DPS operations, products and employees into the combined company and assumption of certain potential liabilities of KGM and the possibility that the anticipated synergies and other benefits of the transaction, including cost savings, will not be realized or will not be realized within the expected timeframe, and (iii) risks relating to the businesses and the industries in which our combined company operates. These risks and uncertainties, as well as other risks and uncertainties, are more fully discussed in the Company's filings with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2019, and our subsequent filings with the SEC. While the lists of risk factors presented here and in our public filings are considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Any forward-looking statement made herein speaks only as of the date of this document. We are under no obligation to, and expressly disclaim any obligation to, update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, subsequent events or otherwise, except as required by applicable laws or regulations.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures including Underlying Net Sales, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net income, Adjusted pro forma net sales, Adjusted pro forma operating income, and Adjusted diluted EPS, which differ from results using U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplements to the GAAP reported measures, should not be considered replacements for, or superior to, the GAAP measures and may not be comparable to similarly named measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures typically exclude certain charges, including one-time costs related to the transaction and integration activities, which are not expected to occur routinely in future periods. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures internally to focus management on performance excluding these special charges to gauge our business operating performance, and to provide a meaningful comparison of the Company's performance to periods prior to the transaction. Management believes this information is helpful to investors because it increases transparency and assists investors in understanding the underlying performance of the Company and in the analysis of ongoing operating trends. Additionally, management believes that non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by analysts and investors in their evaluation of companies, and its continued inclusion provides consistency in financial reporting and enables analysts and investors to perform meaningful comparisons of past, present and future operating results. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and reconciliations to non-GAAP financial measures are set forth in the appendix to this presentation and included in the Company's filings with the SEC.

See the attached schedules for the supplemental financial data and corresponding reconciliations of KDP Adjusted net income, Adjusted operating income, Adjusted pro forma net sales, Adjusted pro forma operating income, and Adjusted diluted EPS.

To the extent that the Company provides guidance, it does so only on a non-GAAP basis and does not provide reconciliations of such forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP due to the inability to predict the amount and timing of impacts outside of the Company's control on certain items, such as non-cash gains or losses resulting from mark-to-market adjustments of derivative instruments, among others.
