THIRD QUARTER 2020 HIGHLIGHTS

 

Our consolidated financials reflect both predecessor and successor periods indicative of the June 25, 2020 business combination date. The third quarter results disclosed below compare the successor’s 2020 third quarter results ended September 30, 2020 to the predecessor’s 2019 third quarter results ended September 30, 2019.

 

·Consolidated product revenues of $67.0 million, an increase of 4.6% compared to the prior year third quarter; an increase of 3.6% on a constant currency basis.

 

·Branded CPG segment product revenues of $41.0 million, an increase of 1.8%; an increase of 0.1% on a constant currency basis. Constant currency results reflect the combination of strong growth in Western Europe, and North American foodservice channel softness associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

·Flavors & Ingredients segment product revenues of $26.0 million, an increase of 9.4% in the third quarter, driven by strong growth in derivative product lines.

 

·Consolidated operating income of $1.1 million and a consolidated net loss of $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 reflect non-cash purchase accounting adjustments which are not comparable to prior year’s predecessor period.

 

·Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA increased 6.7% to $16.5 million driven by increased sales and expense reduction actions.

 

Irwin Simon, Executive Chairman, stated, “We are excited to deliver our first full quarter as a public company. I’m proud of our team – they’ve been working diligently to build the necessary infrastructure to support our rapidly growing enterprise and the evidence of this work is the speed by which we were able to close the Swerve acquisition. We are poised for a strong year ahead, supported by our internal organic growth initiatives which are complemented by Swerve, a high-quality asset that is highly synergistic with our ‘free-from…’ strategy.”

 

Albert Manzone, Chief Executive Officer of Whole Earth Brands, commented, “Our Branded CPG segment performance was highlighted by strong market share gains within our natural products business. All of our top seven markets grew share of natural in the year-to-date period, underscoring the powerful healthy-living macro trends that are supporting our brands. Additionally, our Flavors & Ingredients segment experienced a very strong quarter driven by the resiliency of our diverse end-markets. Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, we are anticipating a strong finish to 2020, marked by a nice sequential lift in revenue within our Branded CPG segment, which is indicative of the distribution gains that we’ve been planning for ahead of the holiday season.”
