Farmer Bros. Co. Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results and Provides COVID-19 Update


NORTHLAKE, Texas, May 7, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Farmer Bros. Co. (NASDAQ: FARM) (the "Company") today reported financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended
March 31, 2020
. The Company also provided an update on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Highlights:

Volume of green coffee processed and sold decreased by 2.2 million to 25.7 million pounds, a 7.9% decrease over the prior year period partially due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic discussed below;
Green coffee pounds processed and sold through our DSD network were 8.4 million, or 32.5% of total green coffee pounds processed and sold
Direct ship customers represented 17.1 million, or 66.4%, of total green coffee pounds processed and sold
Distributor customers represented 0.3 million pounds, or 1.0%, of total green coffee pounds processed and sold
Net sales were $129.1 million, a decrease of $17.5 million, or 12.0%, from the prior year period;
Gross margin increased to 29.4% from 27.2% in the prior year period;
Operating expenses as percentage of sales, inclusive of a $42.0 million intangible asset impairment charge
increased to 64.4% from 31.4% in the prior year period;
Net loss was $39.8 million compared to net loss of $51.7 million in the prior year period; and
Adjusted EBITDA was $6.6 million compared to $4.5 million in the prior year period.*

(*Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is reconciled to its corresponding GAAP measure at the end of this press release.)


“Farmer Brothers has moved rapidly to address unprecedented challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and I am proud of the way we have adapted our operations to new ways of working,” said Deverl Maserang, President and CEO. “Our response to the COVID-19 crisis has been focused on three priorities including: protecting the health and safety of our employees and customers; preserving liquidity and supporting the long-term sustainability of our business; and pivoting our business to accelerate many of our strategies including our e-commerce initiatives, expanding our roastery direct services, and enhancing pop-up and additional retail sales opportunities. I am encouraged by the significant progress we saw through January, February and early March across both DSD and Direct Ship. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were on track to exceed our expectations and deliver adjusted EBITDA in excess of prior quarters, demonstrating that our strategies are working. We continue to believe our turnaround strategy provides the foundation we need to position Farmer Brothers to support our customers through this crisis and beyond.”







COVID-19 Business Update:

The COVID-19 pandemic and the related shelter-in-place orders, as well as changes in recent consumer behavior, have had an adverse impact on certain of the Company's DSD customers, particularly restaurants, hotels, casinos and coffeehouses. Many of these customers have been forced to close or curtail operations, and are purchasing at reduced volumes if at all. As a result, in the last two weeks of March and into April, sales from the Company’s DSD customers declined between 65% to 70% from the pre COVID-19 pandemic average sales. The Company is unable to predict the rate at which these customers will resume operations and purchases as shelter-in-place restrictions are lifted. We do not expect to see a meaningful improvement in our operating results until federal, state and local government authorities ease travel bans and restrictions, quarantines, shelter-in-place orders, and shutdowns.

Farmer Brothers continues to take the appropriate steps to enhance its operational and financial flexibility and ensure its long-term sustainability. To date, the Company has taken the following actions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

Temporarily decreased compensation to executive leadership, members of the Board of Directors, and corporate team members and all exempt employees (except route sales representatives);
Reduced headcount and furloughed employees;
Reduced spending, including, among other items:
Instituting a moratorium on all travel;
Reducing plant production costs at two of our plants;
Reducing capital expenditures;
Implementing cost controls throughout our coffee brewing equipment program service network; and
Reducing our DSD supply chain network costs.
Commenced negotiations with landlords on rent, operating expenses and leases;
Drew down $42.0 million in April 2020 on its $125.0 million revolving credit facility to increase the Company’s cash position and preserve financial flexibility; and
Prepared to apply for appropriate relief under the Main Street Lending program of the CARES Act as we obtain additional guidance.

We expect these actions will improve our cost structure to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operating results and liquidity, however there are no assurances at this time. As a result, we are exploring several different opportunities and access to various capital resources to provide additional near-term liquidity.

At this time it is not possible to predict the duration and scope of the COVID-19 pandemic or its short and longer-term impact on the demand for our products and services.

(1) EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures; a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their corresponding GAAP measures is included at the end of this press release.






Net sales in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 were $129.1 million, a decrease of $17.5 million, or 12.0%, from the prior year period. The decrease in net sales was driven primarily by lower sales of coffee, beverage and allied products sold through our DSD network due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the sale of our office coffee business in July 2019 and net customer attrition. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on DSD revenues in the last two weeks of March 2020 was a decline of approximately 65% to 70% compared to the pre-COVID sales run rates as our customer base had either limited operations, or had closed their doors in compliance with the federal, states and local governments' restrictions on social distancing. The largest DSD revenue declines were from restaurants, hotels and casino channels, while demand from healthcare and C-stores channels were impacted less. Our direct ship sales declined compared to the prior year period due to lower coffee volume and the impact of coffee prices for our cost plus customer, partially offset by favorable customer mix shift.

Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $37.9 million, a decrease of $2.0 million, or 4.9% from the prior year period and gross margin increased to 29.4% from 27.2%. The increase in gross margin was primarily driven by lower reserves for slow moving inventories, lower freight costs, lower coffee brewing equipment costs and improved production variances.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 increased $37.1 million, or 80.7%, to $83.1 million, from $46.0 million, and as a percentage of net sales increased to 64.4% compared to 31.4% of net sales, in the prior year period. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to impairments of goodwill and intangible assets of $42.0 million, partially offset by a $2.5 million decrease in selling expenses and a $2.5 million decrease in general and administrative expenses. Impairment of goodwill and intangible assets was primarily associated with our annual impairment test as of January 31, 2020, adjusted further by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that had a negative impact on the fair value of our assets. The decrease in selling expenses was primarily driven by efficiencies realized from DSD route optimization, lower DSD sales commissions and travel expenses. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was associated primarily with reductions in third party costs, lower headcount, the absence of Boyd Coffee integration costs and one-time credit for employee incentive cost due to the reversal of the fiscal 2020 management incentive compensation accrual, partially offset by the COVID-19 pandemic related severance costs.

Interest expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased $0.5 million to $2.5 million as compared to $3.0 million in the prior year period principally due to lower pension interest expense and less borrowings on our credit facility.

In March 2020, we announced the termination of our postretirement medical benefit plan, effective January 1, 2021. The announcement triggered a re-measurement, and resulted in curtailment gains of $5.8 million in the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Other, net in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 increased by $0.6 million to $1.1 million in the quarter compared to $0.5 million in the prior year period primarily due to lower mark-to-market net losses on coffee-related derivative instruments not designated as accounting hedges.

Income tax benefit was $1.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to income tax expense of $43.2 million in the prior year period. The tax benefit is primarily due to the previously recorded valuation allowance and change in our estimated deferred tax liability during the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to the prior year period.

As a result of the foregoing factors, net loss was $39.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as compared to net loss of $51.7 million in the prior year period. Net loss available to common stockholders was $39.9 million, or $2.32 per common share available to common stockholders-diluted, in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to net loss available to common stockholders of $51.9 million, or $3.05 per common share available to common stockholders-diluted, in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP (U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures within the meaning of the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section on why the Company believes these supplemental measures are useful, reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and the limitations on the use of these supplemental measures.

Adjusted EBITDA was $6.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $4.5 million in the prior year period, and Adjusted EBITDA Margin was 5.1% in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 3.1% in the prior year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to net (loss) income determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating performance:
“EBITDA” is defined as net (loss) income excluding the impact of:
income taxes;
interest expense; and
depreciation and amortization expense.
“EBITDA Margin” is defined as EBITDA expressed as a percentage of net sales.
“Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as net (loss) income excluding the impact of:
income taxes;
interest expense;
(loss) income from short-term investments;
depreciation and amortization expense;
ESOP and share-based compensation expense;
non-cash impairment losses;
non-cash pension withdrawal expense;
restructuring and other transition expenses;
severance costs;
proxy related expenses;
non-recurring costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic;
net gains and losses from sales of assets;
non-cash pension and postretirement benefits; and
acquisition and integration costs.
“Adjusted EBITDA Margin” is defined as Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of net sales.
Restructuring and other transition expenses are expenses that are directly attributable to (i) employee retention and separation benefits, pension withdrawal expense, facility-related costs and other related costs such as travel, legal, consulting and other professional services; and (ii) severance, prorated bonuses for bonus eligible employees, contractual termination payments and outplacement services, and other related costs, including legal, recruiting, consulting, other professional services, and travel.
For purposes of calculating EBITDA and EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, we have excluded the impact of interest expense resulting from the adoption of ASU 2017-07, non-cash pretax pension and postretirement benefits resulting from the amendment and termination of the Farmer Bros. pension and postretirement benefits plans and severance because these items are not reflective of our ongoing operating results.
We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company’s operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Further, management utilizes these measures, in addition to GAAP measures, when evaluating and comparing the Company’s operating performance against internal financial forecasts and budgets.
We believe that EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of certain items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. These potential differences may be caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense). We also present EBITDA and EBITDA Margin because (i) we believe that these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry, (ii) we believe that investors will find these measures useful in assessing our ability to service or incur indebtedness, and (iii) we use these measures internally as benchmarks to compare our performance to that of our competitors.





EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We do not intend for non-GAAP financial measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
