Agribusiness Summary

 

Higher Agribusiness results in the quarter reflected strong execution throughout the value chains, particularly in managing risk, committed crush capacity and global trade flows.

Oilseeds (5)

  Quarter Ended   Six Months Ended
US$ in millions, except per share data June 30, 2020 June 30, 2019   June 30, 2020 June 30, 2019
Oilseeds EBIT $ 544    $ 173      $ 392    $ 280   
Certain (gains) & charges —        —     
Adjusted Oilseed EBIT $ 544    $ 174      $ 392    $ 289   

In Oilseeds, higher soy processing results were driven by higher margins in South America, Europe and Asia, partially offset by lower margins in North America. Softseed processing results were higher in all regions. We carried into the second quarter a mark-to-market balance of approximately $295 million of previously reported timing losses related to forward oilseed processing contracts and hedges against sales to our downstream Edible Oils customers. As anticipated, approximately $155 million of these timing losses reversed in the second quarter upon executing a portion of these contracts. In addition, as a result of a decrease in global crush margins and the recovery in global vegetable oil prices during the quarter, we benefited from new mark-to-market gains of approximately $145 million. This reduced our carryforward balance on open contracts to a net gain of less than $10 million, which is expected to reverse in the coming quarters. Higher results in trading and distribution were driven by increased margins and favorable positioning.

Grains (5)

  Quarter Ended   Six Months Ended
US$ in millions, except per share data June 30, 2020 June 30, 2019     June 30, 2020 June 30, 2019

Certain (gains) & charges —        —     
Adjusted Grains EBIT $ 299    $ 37      $ 324    $ 71   

Results in Grains improved in most areas of the business. Origination benefited from increased farmer selling in Brazil with the rise of local prices caused by the devaluation of the Brazilian real. North America origination also showed improvement. Higher results in trading and distribution were driven by improved margins and favorable positioning. Ocean Freight also had a strong quarter, driven by excellent execution, as well as approximately $75 million of gains from the reversal of mark-to-market timing primarily related to bunker fuel hedges that negatively impacted the first quarter.

Edible Oil Products Summary

 

Early in the quarter, we observed a steep drop in foodservice and biofuel demand due to COVID-19-related lockdowns and restrictions. As the quarter developed, refinery margins improved driven by increased demand from food processor and consumer retail channels along with a partial recovery in foodservice and biofuel demand. This margin improvement, combined with share growth with new customers and lower costs, resulted in higher earnings in all regions.

Sugar & Bioenergy Summary

 

Segment results for this quarter, which are non-cash, reflect our share of the results of the 50/50 joint venture with BP. By contrast, second quarter 2019 reflected our 100 percent ownership of the Brazilian sugar and bioenergy operations that we contributed to the joint venture in December 2019. Additionally, results of the joint venture are reported on a one-month lag.

 

Lower results in the quarter were primarily driven by approximately $70 million of foreign exchange translation losses on U.S. dollar denominated debt of the joint venture due to depreciation of the Brazilian real. Also contributing to the decline in earnings were lower Brazilian ethanol prices driven by the drop in global oil prices.

 

Cash Flow

  Six Months Ended
  June 30, 2020 June 30, 2019
Cash used for operating activities $ (1,502)   $ (1,083)  
Proceeds from beneficial interest in securitized trade receivables 748    547   
Cash used for operating activities, adjusted $ (754)   $ (536)  

 

Cash used by operations in the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $1,502 million compared to cash used of $1,083 million in the same period last year. Adjusting for the proceeds from beneficial interest in securitized trade receivables, cash used by operating activities was $754 million compared with cash used by operating activities of $536 million in the prior year. This increase in cash used by operations was primarily driven by increased purchases of readily marketable inventory.

Income Taxes

For the six month period ended June 30, 2020, income tax expense was $113 million. Adjusting for notable items, the effective tax rate was approximately 22%.

 

Ø COVID-19 Update

Bunge continues to take proactive steps to protect the health and safety of its employees, their families and the communities in which it operates. Through an internal task force, the Company closely monitors developments related to the pandemic and provides guidance to its facilities worldwide. Each of Bunge’s facilities around the globe is taking steps to respond to COVID-19 based on the nature of its operations and the actions being taken by local governments. The Company has restricted travel, upgraded the cleaning practices at its facilities and offices, implemented remote work arrangements for teammates wherever possible, reduced staffing in its production facilities and instituted social distancing measures.

 

Numerous countries around the globe, including places where Bunge operates production facilities or maintains offices, have implemented shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders. While many of these countries have subsequently eased these orders, some have re-instated shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders, and other countries are expected to follow suit if the virus continues to spread. In locations where such orders are in place, Bunge has been deemed an essential or life-sustaining operation. To date, the Company has not seen a significant disruption in its supply chain, has been able to mitigate logistics and distribution issues that have arisen, and substantially all of its facilities around the world have continued to operate at or near normal levels. Bunge continues to monitor governmental actions that could limit or restrict the movement of agricultural commodities or products or otherwise disrupt physical product flows.

 

The Company’s strong balance sheet and access to committed capital will continue to be important in allowing it to reliably serve customers and continue to operate its global platform while protecting the health and safety of its employees. At the end of the second quarter of 2020, Bunge had $277 million in cash and short-term investments on hand and $3.6 billion of its $4.3 billion of committed credit lines were unused and available. It also continues to have access to the capital markets at a competitive cost of funds.

Ø Outlook

 

We are increasing our full-year 2020 EPS outlook to reflect our stronger than expected second quarter results.

 

In Agribusiness, based on first half results, the current market environment and forward curves, our full-year results will be higher than our previous guidance, as well as last year’s results.

 

In Edible Oils we expect modest improvement compared to our previous outlook. Despite a stronger than expected second quarter, the business will likely continue to face headwinds from COVID-19. Expected results in Milling continue to be in line with last year.

 

The Company expects the following for 2020: an adjusted annual effective tax rate in the upper end of the range of 19% to 23%; net interest expense of approximately $230 million; capital expenditures in the range of $375 to $400 million; and depreciation and amortization of approximately $400 million.

 

The outlook of the sugar and bioenergy joint venture has declined from the previous forecast to reflect the impact of foreign exchange volatility in the first half of the year.

Ø Definition and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release contains certain “non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Bunge has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures below. These measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Total Segment EBIT and Adjusted Total Segment EBIT

Bunge uses segment earnings before interest and tax (“Segment EBIT”) to evaluate the operating performance of its individual segments. Segment EBIT excludes EBIT attributable to noncontrolling interests. Bunge also uses Core Segment EBIT, Non-Core Segment EBIT and Total Segment EBIT to evaluate the operating performance of Bunge’s Core reportable segments, Non-Core reportable segments and Total reportable segments together with our corporate and other activities, respectively. Core Segment EBIT is the aggregate of the earnings before interest and taxes of each of Bunge’s Agribusiness, Edible Oil Products, Milling Products, and Fertilizer segments. Non-Core Segment EBIT is the earnings before interest and taxes of Bunge’s Sugar & Bioenergy segment. Total Segment EBIT is the aggregate of the earnings before interest and taxes of Bunge’s Core and Non-Core reportable segments, together with its corporate and other activities.

Adjusted Core Segment EBIT, Adjusted Non-Core Segment EBIT, and Adjusted Total Segment EBIT, are calculated by excluding certain gains and (charges), as described above in “Additional Financial Information”, from Core Segment EBIT, Non-Core Segment EBIT and Total Segment EBIT.

Total Segment EBIT and Adjusted Total Segment EBIT are non-GAAP financial measures and are not intended to replace Net income (loss) attributable to Bunge, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure. Bunge’s management believes these non-GAAP measures are a useful measure of its reportable segments’ operating profitability, since the measures allow for an evaluation of segment performance without regard to their financing methods or capital structure. For this reason, operating performance measures such as these non-GAAP measures are widely used by analysts and investors in Bunge’s industries. These non-GAAP measures are not a measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or any other measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP.

Net Income (loss) attributable to Bunge to Adjusted Net Income (loss) available for common shareholders

Adjusted Net Income (loss) excludes certain gains and (charges) and is a non-GAAP financial measure. This measure is not a measure of net income (loss) attributable to Bunge, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure. It should not be considered as an alternative Net Income (loss) attributable to Bunge, Net Income (loss) or any other measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP.  Adjusted Net income (loss) is a useful measure of the Company’s profitability.

Adjusted Net income (loss) per common share - diluted $ 3.88      $ 1.52      $ 2.67      $ 1.90   

 

(a) Approximately 8 million weighted-average common shares that are issuable upon conversion of the convertible preference shares were not dilutive and not included in the weighted-average number of shares outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2019. Accordingly, the related convertible preference share dividends were excluded from Adjusted Net income (loss) for the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Ø Notes
(1)See Definition and Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures.
(2)A reconciliation of Net income (loss) attributable to Bunge to Net income (loss) is as follows:
  Six Months Ended June 30,
  2020   2019
Net income (loss) attributable to Bunge $ 332      $ 259   
EBIT attributable to noncontrolling interest —       
Noncontrolling interest share of interest and tax (3)     (1)  
Net income (loss) $ 329      $ 262   

 

(3)Approximately 7 million and 6 million outstanding stock options and contingently issuable restricted stock units were not dilutive and not included in the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and approximately 6 million and 5 million outstanding stock options and contingently issuable restricted stock units were not dilutive and not included in the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
(4)Includes readily marketable inventories of $4,807 million and $3,934 million at June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Of these amounts, $3,841 million and $2,589 million, respectively, can be attributable to merchandising activities.
(5)The Oilseed business included in our Agribusiness segment consists of; global oilseed processing activities, primarily related to the crushing of oilseeds (including soybeans, canola, rapeseed and sunflower seed) into protein meals and vegetable oils; the trading and distribution of oilseeds and oilseed products; and biodiesel production, which is partially conducted through joint ventures.

The Grains business included in our Agribusiness segment primarily consists of; global grain origination activities, which principally conduct the purchasing, cleaning, drying, storing and handling of corn, wheat, barley, rice and oilseeds at our network of grain elevators; logistical services for distribution of these commodities to our customer markets through our port terminals and transportation assets (including trucks, railcars, barges and ocean vessels); and financial services and activities for customers from whom we purchase commodities and other third parties.
(6)In the reconciliation of Net income (loss) per common share - diluted (“GAAP EPS”) to Adjusted Net income (loss) per common share - diluted (“Adjusted EPS”), the item “Adjustment of redeemable noncontrolling interest” represents the impact on GAAP EPS of a charge to retained earnings associated with an adjustment to the carrying amount of the redeemable noncontrolling interest recorded in respect of our 70% ownership interest in Loders. The carrying amount of redeemable noncontrolling interests is the greater of: (i) the initial carrying amount, increased or decreased for the noncontrolling interests’ share of net income or loss, equity capital contributions and distributions or (ii) the redemption value. Any resulting increases in the redemption value, in excess of the initial carrying amount, increased or decreased for the noncontrolling interests’ share of net income or loss, equity capital contributions and distributions, are affected by corresponding charges against retained earnings. Additionally, any such charges to retained earnings will affect Net income (loss) available to Bunge common shareholders as part of Bunge’s calculation of GAAP EPS.

Bunge’s management excludes the “Adjustment of redeemable noncontrolling interest” from its calculation of Adjusted EPS, on the basis that they are independent of the Company’s operations. However, such charges will reverse in the future only to the extent that Loders’ net income levels result in the carrying amount of redeemable noncontrolling interests, calculated as described above, exceeding the redemption value.
