Second Quarter and First Half 2022 Review

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coca‑Cola Consolidated, Inc. (NASDAQ: COKE) today reported operating results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2022 and the first half of fiscal 2022.

“Our strong operating performance this quarter reflects solid execution across all aspects of our business. While supply chain challenges and cost inflation continue to impact our business, our team is successfully executing pricing and packaging strategies that are driving profitable growth,” said J. Frank Harrison, III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “I am thankful for all of our teammates who live out Our Purpose every day as they serve our communities, customers and consumers with excellence.”

Net sales increased 11% to $1.60 billion in the second quarter of 2022, while physical case volume increased 1.0%. The increase in net sales was driven primarily by price increases taken on most of our Sparkling and Still beverages over the last year. Sparkling beverage volume increased 1.8% in the quarter, as consumer demand remained strong, especially for our multi-serve can packages. Sales of Sparkling single-serve products sold in immediate consumption channels also continued to perform well, with volume increasing 1.9% in the quarter. Still beverage volume decreased 0.6% in the quarter, as certain brands within this category were impacted by supply chain issues. We continue to see strong sales momentum in several key brands within the Still category, including Monster, smartwater and BODYARMOR. Net sales increased 11% and physical case volume increased 0.3% in the first half of 2022.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 increased $55.7 million, or 11%, while gross margin remained flat at 34.5%. Adjusted(b) gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 was $564.4 million, which represented an increase of $69.8 million, or 14%. Adjusted(b) gross margin was 35.4%, an increase of 90 basis points compared to the second quarter of 2021. The improvement in gross profit resulted from strong price realization and solid volume growth in our Sparkling beverages, which enabled higher gross margins during this period of rising input and production costs. Gross profit in the first half of 2022 increased $114.6 million, or 12%.

“We are pleased with our strong second quarter performance, especially considering the challenging operating environment we faced. While we experienced numerous supply chain challenges during the quarter, our team effectively overcame them to post strong growth in volume, pricing and operating income,” said Dave Katz, President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are making operational and infrastructure investments to alleviate these short-term disruptions, and we believe we will emerge with an even stronger, more flexible manufacturing and distribution network for the long term.”

Selling, delivery and administrative (“SD&A”) expenses in the second quarter of 2022 increased $29.3 million, or 8%. SD&A expenses as a percentage of net sales decreased 80 basis points to 25.3% in the second quarter of 2022. The increase in SD&A expenses related primarily to an increase in labor costs as compared to the second quarter of 2021. Over the last year, we have made compensation adjustments across our workforce to remain competitive in a tight labor market. In addition, SD&A expenses across a number of categories increased during the quarter as a result of the current, high inflationary environment. SD&A expenses in the first half of 2022 increased $51.4 million, or 7%. SD&A expenses as a percentage of net sales in the first half of 2022 decreased 100 basis points to 26.0% as compared to the first half of 2021.

“Consumer demand for our products has remained strong, despite price increases to overcome high commodity and operating cost inflation,” continued Mr. Katz. “We will continue to expand the number of affordable packaging solutions across our brand portfolio as we believe these offerings are a key factor in the continued steady consumer demand for our products. As we take additional pricing in the second half of this year, we will carefully monitor consumer response and remain agile in this evolving operating environment.”

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2022 was $147.3 million, compared to $120.9 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of $26.4 million, or 22%. On an adjusted(b) basis, income from operations in the second quarter of 2022 was $160.1 million, an increase of 33%. For the first half of 2022, income from operations increased $63.2 million to $278.3 million.

Net income in the second quarter of 2022 was $99.6 million, compared to $48.2 million in the second quarter of 2021, an improvement of $51.4 million. Net income increased $91.4 million in the first half of 2022 to $193.0 million as compared to the first half of 2021.

Cash flows provided by operations for the first half of 2022 were $243.5 million, compared to $271.4 million for the first half of 2021. Our strong operating performance, led by our top‑line growth and effective management of operating expenses, drove cash flows from operations during the period. Cash flows from operations were impacted by changes in working capital, which reflect seasonality and the timing of certain cash payments and receipts. We continue to invest in long‑term strategic projects to optimize our supply chain and broaden our brand portfolio.

(c)

 

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of the financial statements with additional, meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing the Company’s ongoing performance. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating and planning decisions and in evaluating the Company’s performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the Company’s reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s non-GAAP financial information does not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting.
