Reynolds Consumer Products Reports First Quarter Financial Results

REYN

Continued Pricing to Offset Cost Increases

Market Share Remains Strong

Prioritizing Reyvolution Cost Savings Initiatives

Reynolds Consumer Products Inc. (“Reynolds,” “RCP” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: REYN) today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net Revenues of $845 million, up 12% over Q1 prior year net revenues
  • Net Income of $52 million; Adjusted Net Income of $55 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $112 million
  • Earnings Per Share of $0.25; Adjusted Earnings Per Share of $0.26

Net revenues increased 12% on top of record first quarter net revenues in 2021, primarily driven by price increases. Net income was $52 million, down 30% versus last year’s first quarter net income, and Adjusted EBITDA was $112 million, down 20% versus last year’s first quarter Adjusted EBITDA, driven by higher material, manufacturing, logistics and advertising costs as well as lower volume, which were significantly offset by price increases.

“We continue growing share in most of our categories and began 2022 with another solid quarter demonstrating our commitment to price leadership,” said Lance Mitchell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are innovating and investing in our categories while also recovering profitability in a dynamic environment. I remain exceptionally proud of the RCP team and see tremendous potential for our business.”

Reynolds Cooking & Baking

  • Net revenues decreased $4 million, or -1%
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $25 million, or -47%

Net revenues decreased 1% as price increases were more than offset by lower volume. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 47% driven by lower volume and material cost increases in excess of price increases.

Volume decreased 14% driven by timing of retailer inventory replenishment as well as lower consumption and reroll sales.

The Company continues to see significant benefits from recent product introductions, including Reynolds Wrap Everyday Non-stick Foil, Reynolds Kitchens Unbleached Parchment and Reynolds Kitchens Butcher Paper. International also continued to grow driven by product portfolio expansion.

Hefty Waste & Storage

  • Net revenues increased $34 million, or 18%
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $1 million, or 2%

Net revenues increased 18% driven by price increases and higher volume. Adjusted EBITDA increased 2% as higher volume and price increases offset higher material, manufacturing and advertising costs.

Volume increased 6% driven by strong demand and easing of staffing and logistics related challenges.

The Hefty portfolio performed well driven by a 13% increase in Hefty waste bag volume, continued momentum for Hefty Fabuloso® and expanding distribution for a wide range of waste and storage products. Hefty EnergyBag® volume was also up double-digits driven by growth across geographies. Commercialization of new recycling applications of Hefty EnergyBag® collected materials also continued in the quarter.

Hefty Tableware

  • Net revenues increased $40 million, or 24%
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $11 million, or -32%

Net revenues increased 24% driven by price increases and higher volume. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 32% as pricing actions lagged increases in material, manufacturing and logistics costs, partially offset by increased volume.

Volume increased 10% driven by strength across our Hefty and store brand portfolio.

New products remained a significant driver of growth. Hefty ECOSAVE™, the number one sustainable brand in disposable tableware according to IRI, continued to expand distribution, and Hefty 28oz food storage containers, Hefty 16oz party cups, Hefty cutlery, and new private label party cups also continued to perform strongly.

Presto Products

  • Net revenues increased $15 million, or 12%
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $1 million, or 6%

Net revenues increased 12% driven by price increases and improved portfolio mix partially offset by lower volume. Adjusted EBITDA increased 6% driven by higher pricing and improved portfolio mix, which was partially offset by higher material and manufacturing costs.

Volume decreased 3% reflecting winter storms, staffing and logistics related disruptions that have moderated since February.

Presto gained additional share of private label food bags in the quarter.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

  • At March 31, 2022, our cash and cash equivalents were $101 million, and our outstanding debt was $2,107 million, resulting in net debt of $2,006 million.
  • Capital expenditures were $28 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 compared to $23 million in the prior year period.

Fiscal Year and Second Quarter Outlook

While the Company is not changing its previously issued earnings guidance ranges for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022, it is updating expected performance within previously stated ranges as follows:

  • Net revenues to be at the high end of the range of 9% to 12% growth on $3,556 million in the prior year
  • Net Income to be near the low end of the range of $319 million to $349 million; Adjusted Net Income to be near the low end of the range of $327 million to $357 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA to be near the low end of the range of $615 million to $655 million
  • Earnings Per Share to be near the low end of the range of $1.52 to $1.66 per share; Adjusted Earnings Per Share to be near the low end of the range of $1.56 to $1.70 per share

The Company also expects Net Debt to be approximately $1.9 to $2.0 billion at December 31, 2022.

The Company assumes elasticity increases but remains below pre-pandemic levels and that it effectively manages staffing, third-party manufacturing and logistics related disruptions.

The Company estimates 2022 cost pressures of approximately $450 million (previously $400 million). Commodity rates are assumed stable by comparison to end of April levels.

The Company also expects the following results for its second quarter ending June 30, 2022:

  • Net revenues to grow 6% to 8% on $873 million in the prior year driven by price increases
  • Net Income to be in the range of $47 million to $55 million; Adjusted Net Income to be in the range of $49 million to $57 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $110 million to $120 million
  • Earnings Per Share to be in the range of $0.22 to $0.26 per share; Adjusted Earnings Per Share to be in the range of $0.23 to $0.27 per share

“We continue taking action to fully recover pre-pandemic profitability and have implemented another round of price increases to offset additional commodity cost increases,” said Michael Graham, Chief Financial Officer. “Our commitment to profit recovery remains unchanged as evidenced by our pricing actions. We also remain focused on automation and other Reyvolution initiatives to improve earnings and cash flow and expect to see a return to earnings growth in the second half of the year.”

Quarterly Dividend

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved a quarterly dividend of $0.23 per common share. The Company expects to pay this dividend on May 31, 2022, to shareholders of record as of May 17, 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use non-GAAP financial measures “Adjusted EBITDA,” “Adjusted Net Income,” “Adjusted Earnings Per Share,” and “Net Debt” in evaluating our past results and future prospects. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus the sum of income tax expense, net interest expense, depreciation and amortization and further adjusted to exclude IPO and separation-related costs. We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share as Net Income and Earnings Per Share calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus the sum of IPO and separation-related costs. We define Net Debt as the current portion of long-term debt plus long-term debt less cash and cash equivalents.

We present Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management team to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions. In addition, our chief operating decision maker uses Adjusted EBITDA of each reportable segment to evaluate the operating performance of such segments. We use Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share as supplemental metrics to evaluate our business’ performance in a way that also considers our ability to generate profit without the impact of certain items. We use Net Debt as we believe it is a more representative measure of our liquidity. Accordingly, we believe presenting these metrics provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management team and board of directors.

Non-GAAP information should be considered as supplemental in nature and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as or comparable to similar non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.

Guidance for fiscal year and second quarter 2022, where adjusted, is provided on a non-GAAP basis. The Company cannot reconcile its expected Adjusted EBITDA to expected Net Income under “Fiscal Year and Second Quarter Outlook” 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, which unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company’s GAAP financial results. In addition, the Company cannot reconcile its expected Net Debt to expected total debt without reasonable effort because certain items that impact total debt and other reconciling metrics are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonable predicted at this time, which unavailable information could have a significant impact on the Company’s GAAP financial results.

Please see reconciliations of Non-GAAP measures used in this release (with the exception of our second quarter and full year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA outlook and our 2022 Net Debt outlook, as described above) to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, beginning on the following page.
