Pods

  • Pod net sales were driven by a 4% decrease in equivalent servings2 volume and an approximately 6% decrease due to product mix. This was partially offset by an approximately 2% increase due to net price realization.3 Foreign currency exchange rates negatively impacted pod net sales by approximately 2%.
  • For the Company’s U.S. At Home business, pod volumes fell by 3%. The Company typically sees a build in customer and retailer inventory in the fourth quarter in advance of the holiday season. In the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company saw a much larger build in such inventories, due in part to the SAP transition in the first quarter of 2015. While shipments were impacted by this comparison, consumer demand for pods as measured by retail sales remains healthy. The Company estimates that retail unit sales of pods grew 7% in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Brewers and Accessories

  • For the quarter, 1.9 million Keurig® hot system brewers were sold including 1.8 million sold by Keurig with 0.1 million reported sold by Keurig’s licensed brewer partners. This brewer shipment number does not account for consumer returns.
  • Brewer sales were driven by a 20% decrease in sales volume, an approximately 10% decrease due to product mix and an approximately 1% decrease due to net price realization. Foreign currency exchange rates negatively impacted brewer and accessory net sales by approximately 1%.

Other Products

  • Sales of other products were driven by the unfavorable impact of foreign exchange rates, the loss of a customer in our away from home channel and our decision to focus and allocate resources on our pod business.
  • For the quarter, GAAP gross margin declined 530 basis points to 32.3% of net sales from 37.6% in the prior year period. Non-GAAP gross margin declined approximately 300 basis points to 34.7% of net sales from 37.6% in the prior year period. An $8.6 million obsolescence charge related to BOLT® brewers negatively impacted both GAAP and Non-GAAP gross margin. An abandonment and impairment of packaging lines negatively impacted GAAP gross profit by $24 million and was excluded from Non-GAAP gross profit. The following table quantifies the changes in gross margin period to period:
 
 

Change from Q4
Fiscal 2014 to
Q4 Fiscal 2015

Impairment and abandonment of packaging lines -230   bps
Unfavorable green coffee costs -220 bps

GAAP margin change -530 bps

  • GAAP SG&A declined 20%, representing 17.0% of net sales for the quarter as compared to 18.5% in the prior year period. Non-GAAP SG&A decreased 20% representing 15.7% of sales for the quarter as compared to 16.9% in the prior year period. The decrease in Non-GAAP SG&A over the prior year period was primarily driven by declines in marketing expense and compensation expense.
  • GAAP operating income declined 37%, representing 13.9% of net sales for the quarter, compared to 19.1% in the prior year period.
  • Non-GAAP operating income declined 21%, representing 19.0% of net sales in the quarter, compared to 20.7% in the prior year period.
  • The Company’s effective income tax rate was 32.3% for the quarter as compared to 35.2% in the prior year period.
  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter were 155.2 million, down 6% from 164.4 million in the prior year period. The reduction in shares outstanding from the prior year quarter was driven by the Company’s share repurchases under its previously announced share repurchase authorizations including a $700 million accelerated share repurchase (ASR) program, open market purchases and 10(b)5-1 plans and the previously announced repurchase of 5.2 million shares from Luigi Lavazza S.p.A. on March 3, 2015.
  • GAAP diluted EPS declined 29% from the prior year period to $0.61.
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS declined 10% from the prior year period to $0.85.

Business Outlook and Other Forward-Looking Information

The Company provided its outlook for fiscal year 2016:

Fiscal Year 2016

  • Currency neutral net sales growth of flat to low single digits compared to fiscal year 2015. At current exchange rates, foreign currency is expected to negatively impact net sales growth by approximately 1%.
  • An annual effective tax rate of approximately 33.0 % to 33.5%.
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share of $3.25-$3.45. This includes an expected $100 million in productivity savings, additional share repurchase, an approximately $0.16 negative impact from foreign currency at current exchange rates. The midpoint of the guidance range includes a pre-tax estimated income statement loss of $125 million from the Keurig® KOLDTM beverage system. Non-GAAP EPS guidance excludes any restructuring or one-time charges related to the Company’s productivity initiative.
  • Free cash flow in the range of $420 million to $500 million.
  • Capital investment in the range of $225 million to $275 million, with total depreciation and amortization expense of $290 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides non-GAAP operating results that exclude legal and accounting expenses related to the pending securities and stockholder derivative class action litigation, pending antitrust litigation against the Company, and the now concluded SEC inquiry; non-cash acquisition-related items such as amortization of identifiable intangibles; fixed asset impairment and abandonment write-downs; and restructuring and productivity expenses related to our multi-year productivity program, each of which include adjustments to show the tax impact of excluding these items. In each case these amounts are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. The Company’s management believes that these measures provide investors with transparency by helping illustrate the underlying financial and business trends relating to the Company’s results of operations and financial condition and comparability between current and prior periods. Management uses the measures to establish and monitor budgets and operational goals and to evaluate the performance of the Company. Please see the “GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation” table that accompanies this document for a full reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP to non-GAAP results.
