Cott Corporation (NYSECOT) (TSX: BCB) today announced its results for the second quarter ended July 2, 2011. Second quarter 2011 revenue was $640 million compared to $425 million. The Cliffstar business, which was acquired in the third quarter of 2010, contributed $162 million of the increase in revenue. Operating income increased 10% to $43 million. Excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses, adjusted operating income was $47 million. EBITDA was $67 million, compared to $54 million. Excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses, adjusted EBITDA was $66 million. Net income and earnings per diluted share were $27 million and $0.28, respectively, compared to $22 million and $0.28, respectively. Excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share were $30 million and $0.32, respectively, compared to $22 million and $0.28, respectively.

"Our second quarter results included volume and revenue growth both globally and in North America, Mexico and the U.K. During the quarter, we also realized additional tax benefits which we expect to be on-going and which positively impacted our financial results in the quarter," commented Jerry Fowden, Cott's Chief Executive Officer. "Despite continued commodity and fuel cost headwinds, we remain focused on delivering another year of significant cash generation," continued Mr. Fowden.

SECOND QUARTER 2011 PERFORMANCE SUMMARY

  • Filled beverage case volume increased 27% (9% excluding Cliffstar) driven by higher volumes in North America, Mexico and the United Kingdom / Europe ("U.K."). 
     
  • Revenue increased 51% (9% excluding Cliffstar and the impact of foreign exchange). Increased revenues were driven by higher volumes in North America, Mexico and the U.K., which more than offset lower volumes in RCI during the quarter. 
     
  • Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 13.8% compared to 17.3% last year and 13.0% for the first quarter of 2011. The year-over-year decline in gross profit as a percentage of revenue was primarily attributable to the adverse impact of higher commodity and fuel costs. 
     
  • Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $45 million compared to $35 million. Excluding Cliffstar and integration expenses, SG&A expenses were $37 million. The increase in SG&A excluding Cliffstar and integration expenses was driven by employee-related costs, information technology costs and professional fees. 
     
  • Operating income increased 10% to $43 million. Excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses, adjusted operating income was $47 million. 
     
  • EBITDA was $67 million compared to $54 million. Excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses, adjusted EBITDA was $66 million. 
     
  • Cash provided by operating activities was $21 million and capital expenditures were $11 million.

SECOND QUARTER 2011 OPERATING SEGMENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • North America filled beverage case volume increased 35% to 199 million cases (9% excluding Cliffstar). Revenue increased 63% to $491 million. Excluding the impact of the Cliffstar acquisition and foreign exchange, revenue increased 8% due to higher average prices offset by an adverse product mix. Operating income was $30 million. 
     
  • U.K. filled beverage case volume increased 7% to 54 million cases. Revenue increased 25% to $126 million (15% excluding the impact of foreign exchange), driven by increased volumes and a continued favorable product mix. Revenue in the energy and sports isotonic categories increased 36%. Operating income was $11 million. 
     
  • Mexico filled beverage case volume increased 17% to 12 million cases. Revenue increased 15% to $16 million (7% excluding the impact of foreign exchange). 
     
  • RCI concentrate volume declined 33% to 62 million cases primarily due to the timing of shipments. Revenue declined 24% to $7 million. Operating income was $2.1 million.

Non-GAAP Measures
Cott supplements its reporting of revenue determined in accordance with GAAP by excluding the impact of foreign exchange to separate the impact of currency exchange rate changes from Cott's results of operations and, in some cases, by excluding the impact of the Cliffstar acquisition. Cott supplements its reporting of net income, operating income and earnings per diluted share in accordance with GAAP and its reporting of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization by excluding Cliffstar purchase accounting adjustments and integration expenses to separate the impact of these items from the underlying business. Additionally, Cott supplements its reporting of SG&A in accordance with GAAP by excluding the impact of Cliffstar and integration expenses. Because Cott uses these adjusted financial results in the management of its business and to understand business performance independent of the Cliffstar acquisition, management believes this supplemental information is useful to investors for their independent evaluation and understanding of Cott's underlying business performance and the performance of its management. The non-GAAP financial measures described above are in addition to, and not meant to be considered superior to, or a substitute for, Cott's financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings announcement reflect management's judgment of particular items, and may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
