___________________________________

Molson Coors Brewing Company (NYSE: TAP; TSX: TPX) today reported results for the 2019 first quarter. Molson Coors president and chief executive officer Mark Hunter said:

“Our first quarter was solid, delivering on our commitment to improving top-line performance while also protecting the bottom line. Even with industry volume pressure in North America and the shift of Easter from Q1 to Q2, revenue was up on a constant currency basis, driven by strong and disciplined net sales revenue per hectoliter growth across our business, ongoing portfolio premiumization, and improving share trends in our largest market.”

Mark continued, “While only the first and smallest of our quarters, I am encouraged by the meaningful growth of net sales revenue in the U.S., led by the increasingly strong performance of Miller Lite which held total beer industry share and an improved performance of Coors Light in our largest and most profitable market, as well as strong U.S. retailer placements for our upweighted innovation program. We also saw continuing strong net sales revenue growth in Europe, our second largest business unit. Across Molson Coors I am pleased with the continuing acceleration of our portfolio premiumization efforts alongside our intensified innovation program, and the growth in our underlying EBITDA, which, despite higher inflation, grew on a constant currency basis.”

Quarterly Highlights (versus First Quarter 2018 Results)

  • Net sales: $2.3 billion, decreased by 1.2% driven by volume declines and unfavorable foreign currency movements, partially offset by higher net pricing in all segments and favorable sales mix in Europe. Net sales increased 0.6% in constant currency driven by higher net pricing in all segments, partially offset by volume declines.
  • Volume: Worldwide brand volume of 18.2 million hectoliters decreased 4.7% and financial volume of 20.1 million hectoliters decreased 3.4% due to lower volume in all segments, partially as a result of industry and share declines particularly in the U.S. and Canada compared to prior year.
  • Net sales per hectoliter: $114.59 on a reported financial-volume basis, increased 2.3% and net sales per hectoliter on a brand volume basis increased by 3.7% in constant currency, primarily driven by favorable net pricing in all segments and favorable sales mix in Europe.
  • Cost of goods sold (COGS) per hectoliter: on a reported basis, increased 4.7% primarily driven by cost inflation and transportation costs, increased packaging costs associated with our U.S. bottle furnace rebuild, and volume deleverage, partially offset by unrealized mark-to-market gains compared to losses on our commodity positions in the prior year, cost savings and foreign currency movements. Underlying COGS per hectoliter increased 5.3% in constant currency primarily driven by the same factors as U.S. GAAP results with the exception of the changes in unrealized mark-to-market positions.
  • U.S. GAAP net income attributable to MCBC: decreased 45.6%, primarily driven by the $328 million cash payment received in January 2018 related to a purchase price adjustment for our acquisition of the Miller International business, lower financial volume and higher inflation, partially offset by unrealized mark-to-market gains compared to losses on our commodity positions in the prior year, positive net pricing in all segments, general and administrative spend reductions and cost savings, as well lower net interest expense.
  • Underlying net income: increased 8.1%, driven by positive net pricing in all segments, general and administrative spend reductions and cost savings, as well as lower net interest expense, partially offset by lower volume and cost inflation in all segments.
  • Underlying EBITDA: decreased 0.9% on a reported basis and increased 0.2% on a constant-currency basis, driven by the same factors as underlying net income with the exception of net interest expense.
  • U.S. GAAP cash from operations: net cash used in operating activities for the first quarter of 2019 was $98.5 million, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $315.2 million in the prior year. This decrease was primarily driven by the $328 million cash payment received in January 2018 related to a purchase price adjustment for our acquisition of the Miller International business, as well as unfavorable timing of working capital, partially offset by lower interest paid in the first quarter of 2019.
  • Underlying free cash flow: cash use of $270.1 million for the first quarter of 2019, which represents an increase in cash used of $75.0 million from the prior year, primarily due to unfavorable timing of working capital, partially offset by lower cash paid for interest and capital expenditures.
  • Debt: Total debt at the end of the first quarter 2019 was $10.126 billion, and cash and cash equivalents totaled $234.4 million, resulting in net debt of $9.892 billion.

Quarterly Segment Highlights (versus First Quarter 2018 Results)

United States Business

  • Volume: U.S. brand volume decreased 3.8% on a trading-day-adjusted basis for the quarter, driven by lower volume, partially reflective of industry declines. Sales-to-wholesalers (STWs) volume, excluding contract brewing, decreased 2.7% driven by lower brand volume, partially offset by quarterly timing of wholesaler inventories as we expect brand volume and STW trends to largely converge on a full year basis.
  • Revenue: Net sales per hectoliter (brand volume basis) grew 3.7% driven by higher net pricing.
  • COGS per hectoliter increased 5.9%, driven by higher commodity and transportation costs, increased packaging costs associated with our bottle furnace rebuild, as well as volume deleverage, partially offset by cost savings.
  • Marketing, general and administrative (MG&A) expense decreased 4.5% due to lower employee-related expenses including incremental cost reductions related to the restructuring initiated in the third quarter of 2018, as well as quarterly timing of innovation spend, partially offset by higher marketing investment behind our premium light brands.
  • On a U.S. GAAP basis, the U.S. reported pretax income of $269.4 million, an increase of 2.9%, driven by higher net pricing and lower MG&A expenses, partially offset by cost inflation and lower volumes.
  • U.S. underlying EBITDA increased 3.4% driven by the same factors as U.S. GAAP results.

Canada Business

  • Volume: Canada brand volume decreased 6.0% and financial volume decreased 4.9% in the first quarter, primarily due to industry declines.
  • Revenue: Net sales per hectoliter (brand volume basis) increased 1.9% in constant currency, driven by positive net pricing, partially offset by unfavorable sales mix.
  • COGS per hectoliter increased 6.3% in constant currency primarily driven by volume deleverage, increased distribution costs and cost inflation, partially offset by cost savings.
  • MG&A expense decreased 1.1% in constant currency primarily driven by timing of employee-related expenses, partially offset by higher investments to support the rebranding of our Molson brands and Truss related start-up costs.
  • On a U.S. GAAP basis, Canada reported pretax income of $21.8 million, an increase of 139.6% from the prior year, driven primarily by an unrealized mark-to-market gain of approximately $23 million recognized on the HEXO warrants received in connection with the formation of the Truss joint venture and timing of general and administrative expenses, partially offset by gross margin impacts of volume declines and cost inflation.
  • Canada underlying EBITDA decreased 22.4% in constant currency in the quarter, primarily due to gross margin impacts of volume declines and cost inflation, partially offset by timing of general and administrative expenses.

Europe Business

  • Volume: Europe brand volume and financial volume each decreased 2.3% in the first quarter, as a result of planned declines in our low-margin value brands as we have increased our focus on our national champion and premium portfolios.
  • Revenue: Europe net sales per hectoliter (brand volume basis) increased 8.2% in constant currency, driven by positive net pricing and favorable sales mix.
  • COGS per hectoliter increased 3.7% in constant currency, primarily due to commodity inflation.
  • MG&A expense increased 9.5% in constant currency, primarily due to higher brand investments to support our national champion brands and premiumization initiatives.
  • On a U.S. GAAP basis, Europe reported a pretax loss of $27.5 million, an improvement of 8.0% from the prior year, driven by favorable margin impacts, partially offset by increased marketing investments.
  • Europe underlying EBITDA increased 2.0% in constant currency to $21.9 million, driven by the same factors as U.S. GAAP results.

International Business

  • Volume: International brand volume decreased 6.7%, driven by balancing higher pricing with lower volume in Mexico and cycling a strong post-hurricane result in Puerto Rico during the first quarter of 2018, partially offset by growth in several of our focus markets.
  • Revenue: Net sales per hectoliter (brand volume basis) decreased 8.1% in constant currency, driven by the shift to local production in Mexico and unfavorable geographic mix, partially offset by positive net pricing.
  • COGS per hectoliter increased 2.0% in constant currency, driven by unfavorable geographic mix and inflation.
  • MG&A expense increased 11.9% in constant currency, driven by cycling the $2.0 million of settlement proceeds related to our Colombia business in the first quarter of 2018, partially offset by lower marketing investments in the current year.
  • On a U.S. GAAP basis, International reported a pretax loss of $0.3 million compared to income of $3.7 million in the prior year, driven by lower volumes in Puerto Rico, cycling the $2.0 million of settlement proceeds related to our Colombia business in the first quarter of 2018, unfavorable foreign currency movements and cost inflation, partially offset by shifting to a more profitable business model in Mexico and lower marketing expenses.
  • International underlying EBITDA was $2.7 million driven by the same factors as U.S. GAAP results.

Corporate

  • On a U.S. GAAP basis, Corporate reported a pretax loss of $82.1 million in the first quarter compared to income of $112.8 million in the prior year, primarily due to the receipt of a $328 million cash purchase price adjustment related to our acquisition of the Miller International business in the first quarter of 2018, partially offset by unrealized mark-to-market gains compared to losses on commodity positions in the prior year, lower general and administrative costs and lower interest expense.
  • Corporate underlying EBITDA was a loss of $38.1 million for the first quarter, an improvement compared to the prior year, driven primarily by lower general and administrative expenses.

Special and Other Non-Core Items

The following special and other non-core items have been excluded from underlying results. See the Appendix for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

  • During the first quarter of 2019, MCBC recognized a net special charge of $13.0 million, primarily driven by accelerated depreciation related to brewery closures.
  • Additionally during the first quarter of 2019, we recorded other non-core net benefits of $49.4 million primarily driven by unrealized mark-to-market gains on commodity hedges and our HEXO warrants, as well as the offsetting impact of integration-related expenses.
2019 Outlook

We currently expect to achieve the following guidance for full year 2019:

  • Underlying free cash flow: $1.4 billion, plus or minus 10%.
  • Capital spending: approximately $700 million, plus or minus 10%.
  • Cost savings: approximately $700 million for the 2017 to 2019 program.
  • Consolidated underlying COGS per hectoliter: mid-single digit increase on a constant currency basis.
  • Underlying corporate MG&A expense: approximately $180 million, plus or minus 10%.
  • Underlying depreciation and amortization: approximately $850 million, versus $827 million in 2018, primarily due to planned information systems implementations in the U.S.
  • Consolidated net interest expense: approximately $300 million, plus or minus 5%.
  • International: strong double digit percentage increase to underlying EBITDA in constant currency.
  • Underlying effective tax rate in the range of 18% to 22% for 2019, which remains subject to additional definitive guidance from the U.S. government regarding the implementation of the 2017 tax reform legislation. Our preliminary expectation for our long-term effective tax rate (after 2019) is in the range of 20% to 24%.
  • Deleverage & Dividend: We remain committed to maintaining our investment grade debt rating and we intend to continue to deleverage further in 2019 in accordance with our plans. Our board's intention remains to reinstitute a dividend payout-ratio in the range of 20% to 25% of annual trailing underlying EBITDA for the second half of 2019 and ongoing thereafter.

Worldwide Brand and Financial Volumes

Worldwide brand volume (or "brand volume" when discussed by segment) reflects only owned brands sold to unrelated external customers within our geographic markets (net of returns and allowances), royalty volume and our proportionate share of equity investment worldwide brand volume calculated consistently with MCBC owned volume. Contract brewing and wholesaler volume is included within financial volume, but is removed from worldwide brand volume, as this is non-owned volume for which we do not directly control performance. Our worldwide brand volume definition also includes an adjustment from Sales-to-Wholesaler (STW) volume to Sales-to-Retailer (STR) volume. We believe the brand volume metric is important because, unlike financial volume and STWs, it provides the closest indication of the performance of our brands in relation to market and competitor sales trends.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to financial measures presented on the basis of accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("U.S. GAAP"), we also present constant currency, "underlying COGS" and "underlying COGS per hectoliter" (underlying COGS divided by reported financial volume), "underlying pretax and net income," "underlying income per diluted share," "underlying effective tax rate," and "underlying free cash flow," which are non-GAAP measures and should be viewed as supplements to (not substitutes for) our results of operations presented under U.S. GAAP. We also present underlying earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("underlying EBITDA") as a non-GAAP measure, as well as underlying EBITDA margin, which is calculated by dividing underlying EBITDA by U.S. GAAP net sales. Our management uses underlying income, underlying income per diluted share, underlying EBITDA (and margin), and underlying effective tax rate as measures of operating performance, as well as underlying free cash flow in the measure of cash generated from core operations, to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis; as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations and for evaluating actual results against such expectations; in communications with the board of directors, stockholders, analysts and investors concerning our financial performance; as useful comparisons to the performance of our competitors; and as metrics of certain management incentive compensation calculations. We believe that underlying income, underlying income per diluted share, underlying EBITDA (and margin), and underlying effective tax rate performance are used by, and are useful to, investors and other users of our financial statements in evaluating our operating performance, as well as underlying free cash flow in evaluating our generation of cash from core operations, because they provide an additional tool to evaluate our performance without regard to special and non-core items, which can vary substantially from company to company depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets and capital structure. In addition to the reasons discussed above, we consider underlying free cash flow an important measure of our ability to generate cash, grow our business and enhance shareholder value, driven by core operations and after adjusting for non-core items. In addition, constant-currency results exclude the impact of foreign currency movements. For discussion and analysis of our liquidity, see the consolidated statements of cash flows and the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in our latest Form 10-K and 10-Q filings with the SEC.

We have provided reconciliations of all historical non-GAAP measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measure and have consistently applied the adjustments within our reconciliations in arriving at each non-GAAP measure. These adjustments consist of special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements as well as other non-core items, such as integration related costs, unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses, and gains and losses on sales of non-operating assets, included in our U.S. GAAP results that warrant adjustment to arrive at non-GAAP results. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective and involve significant management judgment.

Our guidance for underlying Corporate MG&A, underlying depreciation and amortization, underlying free cash flow, underlying COGS per hectoliter and underlying effective tax rate are also non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or otherwise have been adjusted for special items from our U.S. GAAP financial statements as well as other non-core items, such as integration related costs, unrealized mark-to-market gains and losses, and gains and losses on sales of non-operating assets, included in our U.S. GAAP results that warrant adjustment to arrive at non-GAAP results. We consider these items to be necessary adjustments for purposes of evaluating our ongoing business performance and are often considered non-recurring. Such adjustments are subjective and involve significant management judgment. We are unable to reconcile the above described guidance measures to their nearest U.S. GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts because we are unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the actual impact of the special and other non-core items. By their very nature, special and other non-core items are difficult to anticipate with precision because they are generally associated with unexpected and unplanned events that impact our company and its financial results. Therefore, we are unable to provide a reconciliation of these measures.

Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure utilized by Molson Coors management to measure performance, excluding the impact of foreign currency movements, and is intended to be indicative of results in local currency. As we operate in various foreign countries where the local currency may strengthen or weaken significantly versus the U.S. dollar or other currencies used in operations, we utilize a constant currency measure as an additional metric to evaluate the underlying performance of each business without consideration of foreign currency movements. This information is non-GAAP and should be viewed as a supplement to (not a substitute for) our reported results of operations under U.S. GAAP. We calculate the impact of foreign exchange on net sales, pretax income, non-GAAP underlying EBITDA and non-GAAP underlying pretax income using the following steps:

  • Multiply our current period local currency operating results (that also include the impact of the comparable prior-period currency hedging activities) by the weighted average foreign exchange rates used to translate the financial statements in the comparable prior year period. The result is the current-period operating results in U.S. dollars, as if foreign exchange rates had not changed from the prior-year period.
  • Subtract the result in step 1 from the unadjusted current-period reported operating result in U.S. dollars (U.S. GAAP measure). This difference reflects the impact of foreign currency translational gains/losses included in the current-period results.
  • Determine the amount of actual non-operating foreign currency gains/losses as a result of hedging activities and activities transacted in a currency other than the functional currency of each legal entity.
  • Add the results of steps 2 and 3 above. This sum equals the total impact of foreign currency translational gains/losses and realized gains/losses from foreign currency transactions. This is the value shown in the “Foreign Exchange $ Impact” column within the table above.
