LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., May 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: HAIN) ("Hain Celestial", "Hain" or the "Company"), a leading organic and natural products company with operations in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East providing consumers with A Healthier Way of Life™, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2020. The results contained herein are presented with the Hain Pure Protein and Tilda operating segments being treated as discontinued operations.

Mark L. Schiller, Hain Celestial's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I am pleased to be raising our full year guidance for 2020 as third quarter financial performance exceeded our previous guidance and is expected to show continuing strength in the current quarter. With our transformation plan taking hold and food-at-home consumption accelerating, Hain Celestial's natural and organic product offerings resonated with consumers, resulting in year-over-year growth in third quarter net sales, the first such increase since fiscal 2018."

Schiller continued, "Across our organization, we are taking necessary safety measures to best manage our business in the current operating environment as we continue to deliver against our transformational strategic plan. I am proud of how Hain associates across the globe rose to the occasion to partner with our valued customers and suppliers to deliver for our consumers and local communities in the face of unprecedented global challenges. As a result of the actions we have taken, we are well positioned to manage through this unprecedented crisis and emerge an even stronger company."

SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Historically, the Company had three reportable segments: United States, United Kingdom and Rest of World. Effective July 1, 2019, the Company reassessed its segment reporting structure, pursuant to which the Company's Canada and Hain Ventures operating segments, which were included within the Rest of World reportable segment, were moved to the United States reportable segment and renamed the North America segment. Additionally, the Europe operating segment, which was included in the Rest of World reportable segment, was combined with the United Kingdom reportable segment and renamed the International reportable segment. Accordingly, the Company now operates under two reportable segments: North America and International. Prior period segment information included herein has been adjusted to reflect the Company's new reporting structure.

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had $192.6 million remaining authorization under the share repurchase program.

SALE OF RUDI'S BAKERY

Effective May 1, 2020, the Company has completed the divestiture of the Rudi's Gluten Free BakeryTM and Rudi's Organic Bakery® brands to an affiliate of Promise Gluten Free. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

FISCAL YEAR 2020 GUIDANCE

The Company now expects all profit metrics for the full year ending June 30, 2020 to be higher than their previously provided ranges as a result of the ongoing execution of our transformation plan and higher food-at-home consumption related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company acknowledges that the magnitude and duration of increased demand remains uncertain and a challenge it faces as a result of the pandemic is its ability to maintain the level of supply needed to keep up with the increased demand. Hain Celestial's outlook assumes its supply chain continues to operate with minimal disruption for the remainder of fiscal 2020. The Company is raising its annual guidance for continuing operations for fiscal year 2020 as follows:


Fiscal Year 2020


Reported

Constant Currency

Adjusted EBITDA

$190 Million to $200 Million

$195 Million to $205 Million

% Growth

+15% to +21%

+18% to +24%

Adjusted EPS

$0.75 to $0.82

$0.78 to $0.85

% Growth

+25% to +37%

+30% to +42%

 

Guidance, where adjusted, is provided on a non-GAAP basis and excludes: acquisition and divestiture related expenses; integration charges; restructuring charges, start-up costs, consulting fees and other costs associated with the Company's productivity and transformation initiatives; unrealized net foreign currency gains or losses; and other non-recurring items that may be incurred during the Company's fiscal year 2020, which the Company will continue to identify as it reports its future financial results. Guidance also excludes the impact of any future acquisitions, divestitures, or share repurchases.

The Company cannot reconcile its expected Adjusted EBITDA to net income or adjusted earnings per diluted share to earnings per diluted share under "Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance" without unreasonable effort because certain items that impact net income and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted at this time.

Webcast Presentation
Hain Celestial will host a conference call and webcast today at 8:30 AM Eastern Time to discuss its results and business outlook. The call will be webcast and the accompanying presentation will be available under the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.hain.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the accompanying tables include non-GAAP financial measures, including net sales adjusted for the impact of Foreign Exchange, Divestitures and certain other items, including SKU rationalization, as applicable in each case, adjusted operating income, adjusted gross margin, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and operating free cash flow. The reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables "Reconciliation of GAAP Results to Non-GAAP Measures" for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 in the paragraphs below. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented provide useful additional information to investors about current trends in the Company's operations and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of operations. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures provided by other companies due to potential differences in methods of calculation and items being excluded. They should be read only in connection with the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company defines Operating Free Cash Flow as cash provided by or used in operating activities from continuing operations (a GAAP measure) less capital expenditures. The Company views Operating Free Cash Flow as an important measure because it is one factor in evaluating the amount of cash available for discretionary investments.

For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, Operating Free Cash Flow from continuing operations was calculated as follows:

$                4,260


$              17,131


$             (36,742)

 

The Company's Operating Free Cash Flow from continuing operations was $29.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $25.1 million from the three months ended March 31, 2019. The Company's Operating Free Cash Flow from continuing operations was $17.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020, an increase of $53.9 million from the nine months ended March 31, 2019. The improvement in Operating Free Cash Flow resulted primarily from an improvement in net income adjusted for non-cash charges in the current year and a decrease in cash used in working capital accounts.

The Company believes presenting net sales at constant currency provides useful information to investors because it provides transparency to underlying performance in the Company's consolidated net sales by excluding the effect that foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations have on period-to-period comparability given the volatility in foreign currency exchange markets. To present this information for historical periods, current period net sales for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average monthly exchange rates in effect during the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, rather than at the actual average monthly exchange rate in effect during the current period of the current fiscal year. As a result, the foreign currency impact is equal to the current year results in local currencies multiplied by the change in average foreign currency exchange rate between the current fiscal period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

The Company provides net sales adjusted for constant currency, divestitures, and certain other items including SKU rationalization, as applicable in each case, to understand the growth rate of net sales excluding the impact of such items. The Company's management believes net sales adjusted for such items is useful to investors because it enables them to better understand the growth of our business from period-to-period.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before income taxes, net interest expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment of long-lived and intangible assets, equity in net loss of equity-method investees, stock-based compensation, net, stock-based compensation expense in connection with the Company's former CEO Succession Plan, Productivity and transformation costs, SKU rationalization and certain inventory write-downs, unrealized currency gains and losses and other adjustments.  The Company's management believes that these presentations provide useful information to management, analysts and investors regarding certain additional financial and business trends relating to its results of operations and financial condition. In addition, management uses these measures for reviewing the financial results of the Company as well as a component of performance-based executive compensation.

For the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was calculated as follows:
