Third Quarter (1)

 

Volumes decreased 0.7% to 101.6 million kilos versus last year due to the impact of weather related smaller crops in the U.S. and Tanzania.

 

Sales decreased 7.5% to $454.5 million this year driven by product mix with an increased percentage of byproduct sales versus lamina and the El Niño weather impact of smaller crops in the U.S. and Tanzania, as well as the impact of the stronger U.S. dollar.

 

Gross profit decreased 5.1% to $65.2 million due to weather related smaller crops in certain origins and differences in product mix, while gross profit as a percentage of sales improved to 14.3% versus 14.0% last year, driven by differences in product mix and favorable currency impacts this year.

 

Operating income was consistent at $38.7 million with improvement in operating income as a percentage of sales to 8.5% from 7.9% last year driven by improvements in selling, general and administrative expense (“SG&A”), other income and restructuring charges.

 

(1) Due to the reconsolidation of our Zimbabwe subsidiary at March 31, 2016 its performance is included in consolidated financial results this year, however was not included in the prior year except for the March 31, 2016 balance sheet. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Debt include Zimbabwe in all periods.

Pieter Sikkel, Chief Executive Officer and President, said “Our results for the nine months ended December 31, 2016 include increased full service volumes and prior crop inventory sales. Improved performance throughout much of our global operations offset a considerable portion of the impact created by adverse El Niño weather, the stronger U.S. dollar and product mix that more heavily favored byproducts this year. Unfortunately, our operations in Brazil, the U.S., and Tanzania were more heavily affected by these factors and overshadowed operations with improvement.
