US Foods Holding Corp. (NYSE: USFD), one of the largest foodservice distributors in the United States, today announced results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020. In this press release we refer to certain organic financial results. Organic financial results exclude contributions during the respective period from Smart Stores Holding Corp. (“Smart Foodservice”), which was acquired on April 24, 2020. For the Food Group of Companies (the “Food Group”), which was acquired on Sept. 13, 2019, organic financial results include contributions for the Sept. 14, 2020, through Sept. 26, 2020, time period only.

CEO Perspective

“In the third quarter, we demonstrated the resiliency of our business model by continuing to gain market share in an industry significantly impacted by COVID-19,” said Chairman and CEO Pietro Satriano. “Our case volumes continue to recover and Adjusted Gross Profit Margin improved by 70 basis points over the prior quarter. This profitable growth, along with our prudent approach to cost management, enabled us to deliver Adjusted EBITDA of $209 million for the quarter, more than double what we delivered in the second quarter. I’m proud of the hard work of all our associates, who remain focused on helping our customers Make It during this challenging time.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

Total case volume decreased 8.9% from the prior year, while total organic case volume decreased 22.2%. Independent restaurant case volume decreased 6.8%, while organic independent restaurant case volume decreased 20.0%. Net sales of $5.8 billion decreased 10.5% from the prior year. Both case volume and Net sales improved throughout the quarter as many of our customers adjusted to social distancing measures and capacity restrictions put in place on non-essential businesses as a result of COVID-19. The Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions contributed Net sales of $876 million, or 15.0%, for the quarter.

Gross profit of $974 million decreased $182 million, or 15.7%, from the prior year, primarily as a result of the negative impact of COVID-19 on case volume, changes to our customer mix and lower logistics income. These were partially offset by contributions from the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 16.7%. Adjusted Gross profit was $977 million, a decrease of $180 million or 15.6% from the prior year, driven by the negative impact of COVID-19 on case volume, changes to our customer mix and lower logistics income. These were partially offset by contributions from the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 16.7%, an improvement of 70 basis points from the prior quarter.

Operating expenses were $896 million, a decrease of $72 million or 7.4% from the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to actions put in place to reduce operating costs as a result of lower case volume, a $30 million reduction in the reserve for uncollectible accounts and a $17 million gain on the sale of excess property in Southern California, which were partially offset by operating expenses for the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Operating expenses as a percent of Net sales were 15.3%. Adjusted Operating expenses were $774 million, a decrease of $75 million or 8.8% from the prior year, primarily due to actions put in place to reduce operating costs as a result of lower case volume and a $17 million gain on the sale of excess property in Southern California, which were partially offset by operating expenses for the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Adjusted Operating expenses as a percent of Net sales were 13.2%, an improvement of 100 basis points from the prior quarter.

Net loss available to common shareholders was $2 million, a decrease of $108 million compared to the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $209 million, a decrease of $98 million or 31.9%, compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS loss was $0.01; Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.15.

Nine Month Fiscal 2020 Results

Total case volume decreased 11.4% from the prior year, while total organic case volume decreased 23.5%. Independent restaurant case volume decreased 13.7%, while organic independent restaurant case volume decreased 24.0%. Net sales of $16.7 billion decreased 11.9% from the prior year. Since early April, both case volume and Net sales have improved as many of our customers have adjusted to social distancing measures and capacity restrictions put in place on non-essential businesses as a result of COVID-19. The Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions contributed Net sales of $2.3 billion, or 13.5%, for the first nine months of fiscal 2020.

Gross profit of $2.7 billion decreased $639 million, or 19.1%, from the prior year, primarily as a result of the negative impact of COVID-19 on case volume, changes to our customer mix, lower logistics income and higher inventory write-offs and product donations. These were partially offset by contributions from the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 16.2%. Adjusted Gross profit was $2.8 billion, a decrease of $603 million or 17.9% from the prior year, driven by the negative impact of COVID-19 on case volume, changes to our customer mix and lower logistics income. These were partially offset by contributions from the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Adjusted Gross profit as a percentage of Net sales was 16.5%.

Operating expenses were $2.8 billion, a decrease of $19 million or 0.7% from the prior year. The decrease was primarily due to actions put in place to reduce operating costs as a result of lower case volume, which were partially offset by a $65 million net increase in the reserve for uncollectible accounts and operating expenses for the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Operating expenses as percent of Net sales were 16.8%. Adjusted Operating expenses were $2.3 billion, a decrease of $205 million or 8.2% from the prior year, primarily due to actions put in place to reduce operating costs as a result of lower case volume, which were partially offset by operating expenses for the Food Group and Smart Foodservice acquisitions. Adjusted Operating expenses as a percent of Net sales were 13.7%.

Net loss available to common shareholders was $231 million, a decrease of $524 million compared to prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $474 million, a decrease of $385 million or 44.8%, compared to the prior year. Diluted EPS loss was $1.05; Adjusted Diluted EPS was $0.05.

Cash Flow and Capital Transactions

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of fiscal 2020 was $533 million, a decrease of $26 million from the same prior year period. Cash capital expenditures for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 totaled $154 million, compared to $157 million for the same prior year period.

At the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2020, the company had $1.0 billion in cash on hand and approximately $1.7 billion in borrowing capacity available under the company’s asset-based lending facility for total liquidity of approximately $2.7 billion.

Net Debt at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $4.8 billion, an increase of $130 million versus the end of fiscal 2019. The ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA was 5.9x at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to 3.9x at the end of fiscal 2019.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2020

Due to the continued uncertainty associated with COVID-19, the company withdrew its fiscal 2020 financial guidance on March 23, 2020, and is not providing financial guidance at this time.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements in this press release which are not historical in nature are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements often include words such as “believe,” “expect,” “project,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “outlook,” “estimate,” “target,” “seek,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “forecast,” “mission,” “strive,” “more,” “goal,” or similar expressions and are based upon various assumptions and our experience in the industry, as well as historical trends, current conditions, and expected future developments. However, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results and there are a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements, including, among others: any declines in the consumption of food prepared away from home; the extent and duration of the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on us; cost inflation/deflation and commodity volatility; competition; reliance on third party suppliers; interruption of product supply or increases in product costs; changes in our relationships with customers and group purchasing organizations; our ability to increase or maintain the highest margin portions of our business; effective integration of acquired businesses; achievement of expected benefits from cost savings initiatives; increases in fuel costs; economic factors affecting consumer confidence and discretionary spending; changes in consumer eating habits; our reputation in the industry; labor relations and costs; continued access to qualified and diverse labor; cost and pricing structures; changes in tax laws and regulations and resolution of tax disputes; environmental, health and safety and other governmental regulation, including actions taken by national, state and local governments to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, such as travel restrictions or bans, social distancing requirements, and required closures of non-essential businesses; product recalls and product liability claims; adverse judgments or settlements resulting from litigation; disruption of existing technologies and implementation of new technologies; cybersecurity incidents and other technology disruptions; management of retirement benefits and pension obligations; extreme weather conditions, natural disasters and other catastrophic events, including pandemics and the rapid spread of contagious illnesses; risks associated with intellectual property, including potential infringement; indebtedness and restrictions under agreements governing our indebtedness; and interest rate increases.

For a detailed discussion of these risks, uncertainties and other factors, see the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 28, 2019, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on February 13, 2020, and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which was filed with the SEC on August 4, 2020. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date of this press release. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). However, Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net (loss) income available to common shareholders and Adjusted Diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures regarding our operational performance and liquidity. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP.

We use Adjusted Gross profit and Adjusted Operating expenses as supplemental measures to GAAP measures to focus on period-over-period changes in our business and believe this information is helpful to investors. Adjusted Gross profit is Gross profit adjusted to remove the impact of the LIFO inventory reserve changes. Adjusted Operating expenses are Operating expenses adjusted to exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance, as well other items specified in the agreements governing our indebtedness.

We believe EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide meaningful supplemental information about our operating performance because they exclude amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. EBITDA is Net (loss) income, plus Interest expense-net, Income tax (benefit)/provision, and Depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for (1) Restructuring costs and asset impairments; (2) Share-based compensation expense; (3) the non-cash impact of LIFO reserve adjustments; (4) Business transformation costs; and (5) other gains, losses or charges as specified in the agreements governing our indebtedness.

We use Net Debt as a supplemental measure to GAAP measures to review the liquidity of our operations. Net Debt is defined as total debt net of total Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash remaining on the balance sheet as of the end of the most recent fiscal quarter. We believe that Net Debt is a useful financial metric to assess our ability to pursue business opportunities and investments. Net Debt is not a measure of our liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Cash Flows Provided by Operations or Cash Flows Used in Financing Activities.

We believe that Adjusted Net (loss) income available to common shareholders is a useful measure of operating performance for both management and investors because it excludes items that are not reflective of our core operating performance and provides an additional view of our operating performance including depreciation, interest expense, and Income taxes on a consistent basis from period to period. Adjusted Net (loss) income available to common shareholders is Net income excluding such items as Restructuring benefits and costs, intangible asset impairments, Share-based compensation expense, the non-cash impacts of LIFO reserve adjustments, Business transformation costs (costs associated with the redesign of systems and processes), and other items, and adjusted for the tax effect of the exclusions and discrete tax items. Prior period amounts have been revised to conform with the current year presentation. We believe that Adjusted Net (loss) income available to common shareholders may be used by investors, analysts, and other interested parties to facilitate period-over-period comparisons and provides additional clarity as to how factors and trends impact our operating performance.

We use Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share, which is calculated by adjusting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, Diluted Earnings per Share, by excluding the same items excluded in our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA to the extent that each such item was included in the applicable GAAP financial measure. We believe the presentation of Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because the measurement excludes amounts that we do not consider part of our core operating results when assessing our performance. We also believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share is useful to investors because these metrics may be used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their evaluation of the operating performance of companies in our industry.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance as well as our performance relative to our competitors as they assist in highlighting trends, (b) to set internal sales targets and spending budgets, (c) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting, (d) to assess financial discipline over operational expenditures, and (e) as an important factor in determining variable compensation for management and employees. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also used in connection with certain covenants and restricted activities under the agreements governing our indebtedness. We also believe these and similar non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry.

We caution readers that our definitions of Adjusted Gross profit, Adjusted Operating expenses, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Net Debt, Adjusted Net (loss) income available to common shareholders and Adjusted Diluted EPS may not be calculated in the same manner as similar measures used by other companies. Definitions and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the schedules attached to this press release. We have not, however, provided a reconciliation of our full fiscal 2019 Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Diluted EPS outlook because we are not able to accurately estimate all the adjustments on a forward-looking basis and such items could have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results as a result of their variability.
