MORRISVILLE, N.C., Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyxus International, Inc. (NYSE: PYX), a global value-added agricultural company, today announced results for its fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Highlights

  • Sales and other operating revenues decreased $14.3 million or 4.9% to $276.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $291.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to a decrease in leaf volume resulting from impacts from Hurricane Florence, foreign tariffs on U.S. tobacco and the timing of shipments from Africa.
  • Gross profit as a percent of sales increased to 14.3% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 14.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to increased sales in the Other Products and Services segment and favorable leaf product mix.
  • Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") increased $11.3 million or 29.7% to $49.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $38.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to startup costs associated with branding, marketing, and advertising expenses for the FIGR cannabinoid and Humble Juice e-liquid brands and the evaluation of a partial monetization of a portion of the Other Products and Services segment.
  • Net loss attributable to Pyxus International, Inc. increased $61.0 million to $61.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $11.5 million.

Pieter Sikkel, Chairman, President and CEO said, "Following a transformative fiscal year 2019, we remain dedicated to execution of our strategy and opportunities to drive enhanced shareholder value. As we move into the next phase of our 'One Tomorrow' journey, we are taking additional steps to further position Pyxus for long-term success.

"We are committed to driving improved results and we remain focused on strengthening our leaf business while continuing to execute on our 'One Tomorrow' initiative by investing in our new startup business ventures to position them for growth. In addition, we are continuing to evaluate the consolidation of Pyxus' ownership in its two majority-owned Canadian cannabis businesses with two of its minority-owned U.S. hemp and e-liquids businesses under the common control of a subsidiary separate from Pyxus' other operations, as well as assess related opportunities to monetize a portion of its interests in this subsidiary in fiscal 2020. 

"Balance sheet management and operational optimization will remain key focus areas as we move into the second half of 2019. We are encouraged by the great strides we continue to make in legal Canadian cannabis, industrial hemp and e-liquids, and we are continuing to pursue aggressive growth and drive these businesses toward profitability.

"We are maintaining our previously provided full fiscal year 2020 revenue guidance and modifying our adjusted EBITDA range to $150 million to $170 million as a result of a contemplated third-party cannabis supply arrangement that did not occur. Our team in Canada will continue to work to secure additional supply on similar terms and conditions. Also included in our guidance is $9.3 million of adjusted EBITDA that may be adversely impacted by trade issues related to continuing and new tariffs in a number of jurisdictions that may not be favorably resolved.

"The Alliance One leaf team continues to drive ongoing improvements in this business. These include leveraging our international footprint and customer relationships to improve market share globally, recognizing that challenging trade conditions and crop sizes will continue to impact certain origins. While we saw a 4.9% decrease in sales and operating revenues in the first quarter compared to the same quarter last year, this was primarily due to the impact of Hurricane Florence and foreign tariffs in the United States, as well as the timing of shipments from Africa, and was partially offset by a 7.2% increase in sales price due to favorable leaf product mix. Based on previous performance and expected full year results, we anticipate sales will be more heavily weighted toward the back half of the year. Alliance One customers continue to recognize our transformation and our commitment to working closely with them to identify potential growth opportunities.

"FIGR, Inc., our wholly-owned indirect Canadian cannabis subsidiary, is executing against its growth strategy, maintaining strong market share and making progress against its commitment to increase local capacity. Following its entrance into New Brunswick earlier this summer, the company quickly established itself as a leader in the market and achieved a 7% share of sales in the first few weeks of its launch.

"New Brunswick marks the third province in which FIGR products are now available for sale and FIGR has more than doubled its retail footprint, while maintaining its commitment to building strong retail relationships and working to enhance yields and product mix while meeting consumer demand. With regards to the expansion of its Prince Edward Island and Ontario facilities, the expansion of FIGR East (licensed as "Canada's Island Garden") is substantially complete and the license amendment was submitted as planned. We expect the new square footage to be operational by the end of the calendar year. The target completion date for phase two of the FIGR Norfolk buildout is the end of 2020.

"We continue to make progress in the industrial hemp and e-liquids categories as well. Criticality, LLC, our unconsolidated industrial hemp joint venture, recently announced that it is launching its line of roll-on liniments, the latest CBD product format under its Korent cannabidiol brand. Looking at the e-liquids business, Bantam continues to take market share and sales continue to grow as expected, keeping pace with the success we've seen in previous quarters. Likewise, Purilum sales are strong and we continue to see growth in line with projections for the year.

"The farmer remains at the heart of everything we do and our expansion into value-added agricultural products remains a key area of focus as we work to help diversify farmer incomes. The refurbishment and expansion work being done to the oil mill and refinery operation in Dodoma, Tanzania, is moving forward as planned and we expect to go into commercial production for sunflower oil extraction in late 2019. Our strong relationships with farmers will be a substantial differentiator as we work to develop high-quality, traceable, sustainable sunflower oil in various product formats.

"Moving forward in fiscal year 2020, we are committed to the ongoing execution of our strategy in the next chapter of our transformation as we work together to achieve our shared purpose to transform people's lives so that we can grow a better world. Our team remains focused on pursuing growth opportunities, enhancing the balance sheet and unlocking value for the benefit of our shareholders, customers, affiliates and employees."

Performance Summary for Three Months Ended June 30, 2019

Sales and other operating revenues decreased $14.3 million or 4.9% to $276.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $291.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to an 11.5% decrease in Leaf volumes, attributable to Hurricane Florence reducing the U.S. crop size and foreign tariffs on U.S. tobacco in North America and timing of shipments from Africa. This decrease was partially offset by the continued development of the Other Products and Services segment and a 7.2% increase in average sales price due to favorable Leaf product mix.

Cost of goods sold decreased $12.6 million or 5.0% to $237.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $249.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in Leaf volume in North America.

Gross profit as a percent of sales increased to 14.3% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 14.2% for three months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was primarily due to increased sales in the Other Products and Services segment and favorable Leaf product mix.

Selling, general and administrative expense ("SG&A") increased $11.3 million or 29.7% to $49.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from $38.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. SG&A as a percent of sales increased to 17.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from 13.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2018. These increases were primarily due to startup costs associated with branding, marketing, and advertising expenses for the FIGR cannabinoid and Humble Juice e-liquid brands and the evaluation of a partial monetization of the Other Products and Services segment.

Restructuring and asset impairment charges decreased $1.3 million or 86.7% to $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 from  $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to a cost-saving and restructuring associated with the closure of a processing facility in the Leaf - Other Regions segment in 2018.

Income tax expense increased $48.8 million or 192.9% to $23.5 million for three months ended June 30, 2019 from $(25.3) million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was primarily due to the change in the effective tax rate from 92.7% to (59.2)% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2019, respectively, and the occurrence of certain discrete items during the three months ended June 30, 2019.

Earnings Per Share

For the three months ended June 30, 2019, the Company reported a net loss of $61.8 million, or $6.79 per basic share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.08 per basic share, for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The decrease is primarily due to a $48.8 million increase in income tax expense and $11.3 million of additional SG&A costs primarily due to startup costs associated with branding, marketing, and advertising expenses for the FIGR cannabinoid and Humble Juice e-liquid brands and the evaluation of a partial monetization of the Other Products and Services segment.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's liquidity requirements are affected by various factors including crop seasonality, foreign currency and interest rates, green tobacco prices, customer mix, crop size and quality, and the extent and timing of facility expansions. As of June 30, 2019, the Company's available credit lines and cash totaled $505.5 million. The Company will continue to monitor and adjust funding sources as needed to enhance and drive various business opportunities that maintain flexibility and meet cost expectations.

1.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") are not measures of results of operations under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP") and should not be considered as an alternative to other U.S. GAAP measurements.  We have presented EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to adjust for the items identified above because we believe that it would be helpful to the readers of our financial information to understand the impact of these items on our reported results. This presentation enables readers to better compare our results to similar companies that may not incur the sporadic impact of various items identified above.  Management acknowledges that there are many items that impact a company's reported results and this list is not intended to present all items that may have impacted these results. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and any ratios calculated based on these measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies or appearing in our debt obligations or agreements. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not equal column or row totals due to rounding. 

2.

As a result of adoption of standard ASU No. 2017-07 related to Compensation-Retirement Benefits on April 1, 2018, the three months ended June 30, 2017 reflects a reclassification of $341 from SG&A to Interest expense.  The fiscal year ended March 31, 2018  reflects a reclassification of $1,301 from SG&A to Interest expense.

3.

Represents income (included in Other income (expense)) from cash received in the period presented from the sale of Brazilian intrastate trade tax credits that had been generated by intrastate purchases of tobacco primarily in prior crop years.  The Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina permit the sale or transfer of excess credits to third parties subject to approval by the related tax authorities.  The Company has long-term agreements with these Brazilian state governments regarding the amounts and timing of credits that can be sold.  Intrastate trade tax credits that are not able to be sold under existing agreements are capitalized into the cost of the current crop and are expensed as cost of goods and services sold as that crop is sold.

4.

Includes expenses incurred associated with the development and initial implementation of the "One Tomorrow" business transformation strategy and exploration of potential monetization transactions involving the Company's interest in these businesses, including legal, strategic consulting, business brokerage and other professional fees, communications expenses consisting principally of fees to branding consultants and for translation services, and human resources expenses, including primarily professional fees related to recruiting and employee communications.

5.

Includes expenses incurred associated with the internal reorganization of legal entities within the leaf tobacco segments of the company to align with operations, including legal, strategic and tax consulting expenses.

6.

Includes consulting expenses incurred associated with the implementation of the 2017 U.S. Tax Reform Act, which became effective January 1, 2018.

7.

Related to a former Brazilian subsidiary that is now deconsolidated following the completion of a joint venture in March 2014.

8.

The initial impact of the recently imposed Argentinian Excise Tax was $2,818 for the  fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The cost of the newly imposed excise tax could not be addressed with customers due to the timing of enactment and the nature of our customer contracts.  Customer contracts for the current fiscal year contemplate the newly imposed excise tax.

9.

Adjusted EBITDA of our former green leaf sourcing operation in Kenya  is calculated on the same basis as Adjusted EBITDA presented in this table. In fiscal year 2016 we decided to exit green leaf sourcing in the Kenyan market as part of our restructuring program.

10.

Items for the twelve months ended June 30, 2019 are derived by adding the items for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019  and subtracting the items for the three months ended June 30, 2018.  Items for the twelve months ended June 30, 2018 are derived by adding the items for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018 and subtracting the items for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Leaf Segments EBITDA and Leaf Segments Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of results of operations under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to other U.S. GAAP measurements.  We have presented Leaf Segments EBITDA and Leaf Segments Adjusted EBITDA to present combined information for the Leaf - North America and Leaf - Other Regions segments for the items identified above because we believe that it would be helpful to the readers of our financial information to understand the impact of these items on the reported results of the Company's leaf tobacco reportable segments separate from the other reportable segment. This presentation provides readers with disaggregated information adjusted for the sporadic impact of the various items identified above.  Management acknowledges that there are many items that impact reported results and this list is not intended to present all items that may have impacted these results. These non-GAAP measures and any ratios calculated based on these measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies. Leaf Segments EBITDA and Leaf Segments Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not equal column or row totals due to rounding. 

2.

Allocation of benefit based on total consolidated assets.

3.

Represents income (included in Other income (expense)) from cash received in the period presented from the sale of Brazilian intrastate trade tax credits that had been generated by intrastate purchases of tobacco primarily in prior crop years.  The Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina permit the sale or transfer of excess credits to third parties subject to approval by the related tax authorities.  The Company has long-term agreements with these Brazilian state governments regarding the amounts and timing of credits that can be sold.  Intrastate trade tax credits that are not able to be sold under existing agreements are capitalized into the cost of the current crop and are expensed as cost of goods and services sold as that crop is sold.

4.

Includes expenses incurred associated with the internal reorganization of legal entities within the leaf tobacco segments of the company to align with operations, including legal, strategic and tax consulting expenses.

5.

Includes consulting expenses incurred associated with the implementation of the 2017 U.S. Tax Reform Act, which became effective January 1, 2018.  Allocation of costs based on total consolidated SG&A.

6.

Related to a former Brazilian subsidiary that is now deconsolidated following the completion of a joint venture in March 2014.

7.

The initial impact of the recently imposed Argentinian Excise Tax was $2,818 for the  fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The cost of the newly imposed excise tax could not be addressed with customers due to the timing of enactment and the nature of our customer contracts.  Customer contracts for the current fiscal year contemplate the newly imposed excise tax.

8.

Adjusted EBITDA of our former green leaf sourcing operation in Kenya  is calculated on the same basis as Adjusted EBITDA presented in this table. In fiscal year 2016 we decided to exit green leaf sourcing in the Kenyan market as part of our restructuring program.

9.
