WESTCHESTER, Ill., Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ingredion Incorporated (NYSE: INGR), a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to the food and beverage manufacturing industry, today reported results for the second quarter of 2021. The results, reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for 2021 and 2020, include items that are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company presents.

“We delivered exceptional second quarter performance, resulting in our strongest quarter since 2017, with reported operating income of $222 million, up 96% versus prior year, and adjusted operating income of $208 million, up 64% versus prior year. In every region, we saw double-digit volume growth from demand recovery across all customer segments, as well as strong specialties growth. Our strong sales execution and price mix management, in a challenging supply chain landscape, mitigated rising corn costs and contributed to our 31% increase in net sales,” said Jim Zallie, Ingredion’s president and chief executive officer.

“In the quarter and year-to-date, we achieved double-digit growth from our specialty ingredients portfolio. We continue to advance our Driving Growth Roadmap by increasing specialties as a percentage of our net sales and investing in capabilities to enable consumer preferred innovation for our customers. Our integration of KaTech with its customized ingredient systems and our Amyris partnership for breakthrough sugar reduction technology position us well as a long-term supplier of choice for on-trend, nature-based ingredient solutions,” continued Zallie.

“Given the strong and fluctuating demand patterns that we are experiencing from various sectors of our customer base, we are intensely focused on working in close partnership with our customers to meet their changing needs. We are also closely monitoring increases in input costs and taking actions now to manage margins. As we navigate the second half of the year, I am confident in our ability to maintain strong net sales momentum, with full year earnings returning to 2019 levels,” Zallie concluded.

*Adjusted diluted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”), adjusted operating income, adjusted effective income tax rate and adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding are non-GAAP financial measures. See section II of the Supplemental Financial Information entitled “Non-GAAP Information” following the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this news release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Net Sales

  • Second quarter and year-to-date net sales were up from the year-ago period. The increase was driven by higher volumes, including PureCircle and KaTech, as well as strong price mix, including the pass through of higher corn costs. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, net sales were up 28 percent and 15 percent, respectively, for the quarter and year-to-date.

Operating Income

  • Second quarter reported and adjusted operating income were $222 million and $208 million, respectively, an increase of 96 percent and 64 percent, respectively, from the same period last year. The increases were driven by strong price mix and higher volumes. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, reported and adjusted operating income were up 91 percent and 59 percent, respectively, from the same period last year.
  • Year-to-date reported and adjusted operating income were $52 million and $409 million, respectively, a decrease of 80 percent and an increase of 39 percent, respectively, from the year-ago period. The decrease in reported operating income was attributable to the held for sale impairment charge related to the Arcor joint venture in Argentina which was partially offset by strong price mix and higher volumes. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, reported and adjusted operating income were down 83 percent and up 37 percent, respectively, from the same period last year.
  • Second quarter reported operating income was higher than adjusted operating income by $14 million due to a favorable decision from the Brazilian Supreme Court related to indirect taxes collected from 2015 to 2018, and acquisition charges, the effects of which were partially offset by Cost Smart related restructuring costs.
  • Year-to-date reported operating income was lower than adjusted operating income by $357 million due to the held for sale impairment charge related to the Arcor joint venture in Argentina.

For both the second quarter and year-to-date, the increases were largely attributable to lower raw material costs and favorable price mix in Pakistan and favorable foreign exchange impacts in Europe.

Dividends and Share Repurchases
Ingredion continues to return cash to shareholders through cash dividends and share repurchases.

In April 2021, a quarterly cash dividend of $0.64 per share was paid to shareholders of record on April 1, 2021, totaling $43 million, bringing dividend payments for the first half of the year to $86 million. Ingredion repurchased $10 million of outstanding shares of common stock in the second quarter. This brings Ingredion’s total share repurchases for the first half of 2021 to $24 million.

2021 Full-Year Outlook
The Company expects full-year 2021 adjusted EPS to be in the range of $6.45-$6.85 compared to adjusted EPS of $6.23 in 2020. This expectation excludes acquisition-related integration and restructuring costs, as well as any potential impairment costs.

Compared with last year, the 2021 full-year outlook is as follows: North America operating income is expected to be up low single-digits to mid-single-digits driven by higher volumes and lower operating expenses; South America operating income, including the impact of the Arcor joint venture in Argentina, is expected to be up low double-digits driven by favorable price mix; Asia-Pacific operating income is expected to be up high single-digits driven by higher volumes and favorable foreign exchange impacts; EMEA operating income is expected to be up low double-digits driven by higher volumes and favorable foreign exchange impacts; and Corporate costs are expected to be up low single-digits driven by investments in global capabilities and centers of excellence. The Company expects full-year adjusted operating income to be up mid-single-digits to high single-digits.

Cash from operations for the full year is expected to be in the range of $500 million to $600 million, which includes an increase in expected working capital due to higher expected net sales and corn costs. Capital expenditures for the full year are anticipated to be between $330 million and $350 million.

For the full year, the Company expects a reported effective tax rate of 54 percent to 58 percent and an adjusted effective tax rate of 27 percent to 28 percent.

II. Non-GAAP Information

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use non-GAAP historical financial measures, which exclude certain GAAP items such as acquisition and integration costs, restructuring and impairment costs, Mexico tax (benefit) provision, and certain other special items. We generally use the term “adjusted” when referring to these non-GAAP amounts.

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally for strategic decision making, forecasting future results and evaluating current performance. By disclosing non-GAAP financial measures, management intends to provide investors with a more meaningful, consistent comparison of our operating results and trends for the periods presented. These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Notes

(i) During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded pre-tax costs of $4 million and $5 million, respectively of acquisition and integration costs, primarily related to the acquisition and integration of the business acquired from PureCircle Limited, KaTech, and Verdient Foods, Inc. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded $3 million of pre-tax costs primarily related to the acquisition and integration of the business acquired from PureCircle Limited. Acquisition and integration costs presented in the “reconciliation of adjusted net income attributable to Ingredion” table are net of costs attributable to non-controlling interest.

(ii) During the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded a pre-tax benefit of $7 million related to the joint venture entered into with Amyris, Inc. (“Amyris”). As part of the venture, the Company has exclusive commercialization rights to Amyris’ rebaudioside M by fermentation sweetener (“Reb M”), the exclusive licensing of Amyris’ Reb M manufacturing technology, and a 31 percent ownership stake in a Reb M manufacturing joint venture. In exchange for the ownership in the joint venture, Ingredion contributed $28 million of total consideration including $10 million of cash, and non-exclusive intellectual property licenses and other consideration valued at $18 million. The transaction resulted in $8 million in Other (income) expense, net recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) during the three months ended June 30, 2021. The $8 million gain includes $18 million of other income related to the contribution of non-exclusive intellectual property licenses and other consideration contributed by Ingredion to the joint venture, offset by a $10 million cash payment made by Ingredion to Amyris for the exclusive right to the Reb M manufacturing technology license from Amyris. The gain on the transaction is partly offset by $1 million of acquisition charges. Additionally, the equity method acquisition charges presented in the “reconciliation of adjusted net income attributable to Ingredion” table are net of acquisition gains attributable to non-controlling interest of $1 million.

(iii) During the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded $4 million of pre-tax restructuring related charges, consisting of $4 million of employee-related and other costs, including professional services, associated with its Cost Smart SG&A program and $5 million of restructuring related charges primarily in North America as a part of its Cost Smart Cost of sales program. The Cost Smart Cost of sales program charges were offset by a $5 million gain on the sale of Stockton, California land and building during the period. During the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded $14 million of pre-tax restructuring charges, consisting of $9 million of employee-related and other costs, including professional services, associated with its Cost Smart SG&A program, $8 million of restructuring related charges as part of its Cost Smart Cost of sales program, primarily in North America, and $2 million of employee-related and other restructuring costs related to the Arcor joint venture transaction expected to close in the third quarter of 2021. The Cost Smart Cost of sales program charges were partly offset by a $5 million gain on the sale of Stockton, California land and building during the period.

During the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded $11 million of pre-tax restructuring/impairment charges, consisting of $6 million of restructuring related expenses primarily in APAC and North America as part of its Cost Smart Cost of sales program and $5 million of employee-related and other costs, including professional services, associated with its Cost Smart SG&A program. During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded $25 million of pre-tax restructuring/impairment charges, consisting of $15 million of restructuring related expenses primarily in APAC and North America as part of its Cost Smart Cost of sales program and $10 million of employee-related and other costs, including professional services, associated with its Cost Smart SG&A program.

(iv) During the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded a $360 million held for sale impairment charge related to the Arcor joint venture. The impairment charge reflects write-down to estimated fair value of the contribution of certain Argentina, Chile and Uruguay assets and liabilities that will be contributed to the Arcor joint venture. The impairment charge reflects a $49 million write-down of the contributed net assets to the agreed upon fair value and a $311 million valuation allowance for the cumulative translation losses related to these net assets that will be released from Accumulated Other Comprehensive Loss on the balance sheet at the close of the transaction.

(v) In May 2021, the Brazilian Supreme Court issued their ruling related to the calculation of certain indirect taxes, and the ruling affirmed the lower court rulings that the Company had received in previous years and ensured that the Company is entitled to the previously recorded tax credits. The Supreme Court ruling also ensures that the Company will be entitled to $15 million of additional credits from the period of 2015 to 2018 that was previously awaiting final court ruling. The Company recorded the $15 million of additional credits during the three months ended June 30, 2021 within Other Income (expense), net in the Condensed Consolidated Income statement.

(vi) The tax item represents the impact of the Company’s use of the U.S. dollar as the functional currency for its subsidiaries in Mexico. Mexico’s effective tax rate is strongly influenced by the remeasurement of the Mexican peso financial statements into U.S. dollars. The company recorded a tax benefit of $4 million and $0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and a tax benefit of $1 million and a tax provision of $22 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively as a result of the movement of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar during the periods.

(vii) – This relates to the reversal of tax liabilities related to certain unremitted earnings from foreign subsidiaries, tax adjustments for an intercompany reorganization, and tax results of the above non-GAAP addbacks.

(viii) If GAAP net income is negative and Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income is positive, adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding will include any options, restricted share units, or performance shares that would be otherwise dilutive instruments using the treasury stock method, until the effect of these adjustments is anti-dilutive. During the six months ended June 30, 2021 the incremental dilutive share impact of these instruments was 0.6 million shares of common stock equivalents. The diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 67.3 million would increase to an adjusted diluted weighted average common shares outstanding of 67.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. There is no impact to the three months ended June 30, 2021 nor the three or six months ended June 30, 2020.
