WESTLAKE, Texas, Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Core-Mark Holding Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: CORE) (“the Company”), one of the largest marketers of fresh, food and broad-line supply solutions to the convenience retail industry in North America, announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“I want to thank our employees, our customers and our vendors for their continued commitment, cooperation and support in what remains a very dynamic environment,” said Scott E. McPherson, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “I am proud of what the Company has accomplished this quarter of largely offsetting the impact of sales and margin declines resulting from COVID-19 through operational efficiency, cost saving initiatives and strategic execution.  While the duration of the impact of the pandemic on our sales and margins is uncertain, our results in the second quarter demonstrate our ability to successfully navigate the challenges ahead.  We finished the quarter with strong free cash flow, low debt leverage and solid momentum focused on moving the business forward and positioning the Company to thrive as we emerge from the pandemic.

Second Quarter Results

Net sales in the second quarter of 2020 were $4.26 billion compared to $4.34 billion for the same period in 2019. The decrease in net sales was due primarily to a decline in non-cigarette sales attributable to the impact of COVID-19, which drove significant changes in consumer buying behavior in the second quarter this year.  Cigarette sales increased 2.1% driven primarily by manufacturer price increases, and partially offset by a 0.8% decrease in total carton sales.  Non-cigarette sales decreased 8.9% due primarily to a decrease in sales to existing customers, with the largest declines in the food and candy categories, partially offset by growth in sales of other tobacco products (“OTP”).  Non-cigarette sales decreased to 32.2% of total net sales for the second quarter of 2020 compared to 34.7% for the same period in 2019.  

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2020 decreased 10.8%, or $25.8 million,  to $213.1 million from $238.9 million for the same period in 2019, driven primarily by the decrease in food/non-food sales and margins to existing customers as result of COVID-19.  These factors were partially offset by $3.9 million of incremental inventory holding gains in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the corresponding period in 2019.  Remaining gross profit, a non-GAAP financial measure, decreased 11.9% to $213.7 million from $242.5 million.

______________________________________
Note (1): See below for the “Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA.”

Gross profit margin for the second quarter was 5.00% of total net sales compared to 5.51% for the same period in 2019.  The change in sales mix between cigarettes and non-cigarettes contributed approximately half of the gross profit margin decline.  Within the non-cigarette category, gross profit margin for the second quarter declined as a result of a shift in the sales mix toward lower margin items and a decline in margin rate, most notably in alternative nicotine products.  Cigarette remaining gross profit margin for the second quarter declined nine basis points due primarily to manufacturer increases in cigarette prices.

The following table reconciles gross profit to remaining gross profit, a non-GAAP financial measure, as gross profit is the most comparable financial measure under U.S. GAAP:

Remaining gross profit (Non-GAAP)$213.7  $242.5  (11.9)% $430.8  $448.9  (4.0)%

The Company’s operating expenses decreased 10.8% to $187.7 million from $210.5 million for the same period in 2019.  The decrease in operating expenses was due primarily to lower warehousing, distribution and SG&A expenses related to the decline in sales, and cost savings initiatives implemented in response to COVID-19.  Operating expenses as a percentage of remaining gross profit increased to 87.8% compared to 86.8% for the second quarter of 2019.

Net income was $16.9 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to $17.7 million for the same period in 2019.  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was $52.5 million compared to $53.5 million for the second quarter of 2019.

Cash and Cash Equivalents were $108.2 million as of June 30, 2020 compared with $14.1 million at December 31, 2019.  Payment deferrals granted by the excise tax regulatory authority in Canada due to COVID-19 were the primary driver of the increased cash balance as of June 30, 2020 and are expected to be paid in August 2020.  The outstanding balance on the Company’s revolving credit facility (“Credit Facility”) was $225.0 million, with $494.4 million available to borrow as of June 30, 2020. Free cash flow for the first six months of 2020 was approximately $208.3 million, a portion of which was used to fund dividend payments of $11.1 million.

Dividend

Core-Mark’s Board of Directors has approved a $0.12 cash dividend per common share, or $0.48 on an annualized basis.  The dividend is payable on September 18, 2020 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 21, 2020.

Revised 2020 Full Year Guidance

The Company now expects 2020 net sales to be between $16.5 billion and $16.8 billion.  Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to be between $173 million and $183 million.  The revised guidance range anticipates carton declines in the 2% to 3% range in the second half of 2020, consistent with recent guidance from the major manufacturers, and continued impact from COVID-19 on non-cigarette sales and margins.  The revised guidance also assumes one additional price increase from the cigarette manufacturers over the remainder of 2020 resulting in full year inventory holding gains in the range of $24 to $26 million.  The guidance ranges above are based on current expectations and do not contemplate significant changes in the impact of COVID-19 or economic conditions on the Company’s business. 

Diluted EPS for the full year is now expected to be between $0.90 and $1.06.  Diluted EPS, excluding LIFO expense, is expected to be between $1.42 and $1.59.   Other key assumptions in the revised guidance include $32 million of LIFO expense, a 26% tax rate and 45.3 million fully diluted shares outstanding.  The Company’s revised guidance assumes no new acquisitions or large customer market share gains.  In addition, capital expenditures for 2020 are expected to be approximately $35 million, which will be used for recurring maintenance projects, upgrading certain distribution facilities and the relocation of one distribution facility.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures including Diluted EPS excluding LIFO expense, Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EBITDA, remaining gross profit, and operating expenses as a percentage of remaining gross profit.  We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitate a meaningful period-to-period evaluation.  We also believe these measures allow investors to view results in a manner similar to the method used by our management.  We use these non-GAAP financial measures in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business.  These non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  These measures may be defined differently than other companies and therefore such measures may not be comparable to ours.  We strongly encourage investors and stockholders to review our financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.

Adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by us to measure operating performance.  Adjusted EBITDA is also among the primary measures used externally by our investors, analysts and peers in our industry for purposes of valuation and comparing our results to other companies.  Adjusted EBITDA is equal to net income adding back net interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, LIFO expense, stock-based compensation expense, and net foreign currency transaction gains or losses.

Free Cash Flow is a measure used by management to measure operating performance.  We believe Free Cash Flow is also one of the primary measures used externally by our investors, analysts and peers in our industry for purposes of valuation and comparing our results to other companies.  Free Cash Flow is equal to net cash provided by operating activities less additions to property, plant and equipment and capitalization of software and related development costs.

Diluted EPS excluding LIFO expense is a measure used by us to measure financial performance.  Diluted EPS excluding LIFO expense is also among the primary measures used externally by our investors, analysts and peers in our industry for purposes of valuation and comparing our results to other companies.  Remaining gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure.  We provide this metric to segregate the effects of LIFO expense, cigarette inventory holding gains and other items that significantly affect the comparability of gross profit.  Operating expenses as a percentage of remaining gross profit is a non-GAAP financial measure used by us to measure operating leverage.

We do not provide a reconciliation for non-GAAP estimates on a forward-looking basis where we are unable to provide a meaningful calculation or estimation of reconciling items and the information is not available without unreasonable effort.  This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of various items that would impact the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measure, that have not yet occurred, are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.  For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.  Forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures provided without the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures may vary materially from the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

The tables in this press release contain more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.
