The Middleby Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results

The Middleby Corporation (NASDAQ: MIDD), a leading worldwide manufacturer of equipment for the commercial foodservice, food processing, and residential kitchen industries, today reported net earnings for the 2021 second quarter of $120.6 million or $2.13 diluted earnings per share on net sales of $808.8 million. Adjusted net earnings were $116.8 million or $2.11 adjusted diluted earnings per share. A full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided at the end of the press release.

“Our strong second quarter results reflect the ongoing recovery in our foodservice businesses with measurable progress toward our long-term growth initiatives and realized profitability improvements at all three of our business segments,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of The Middleby Corporation. “We continued to make investments in technology solutions to capture rapidly-evolving market trends and execute upon our strategic sales initiatives as we position for the future.”

2021 Second Quarter Financial Results

  • Net sales increased 71.4% in the second quarter over the comparative prior year period. Excluding the impacts of acquisitions, a disposition and foreign exchange rates, sales increased 64.8% in the second quarter over the comparative prior year period, reflecting improvements in market conditions and consumer demand since the initial impact of COVID-19.
  • Organic net sales (a non-GAAP measure) increases were reported for all segments due to improvements in market conditions and consumer demand in the second quarter of 2021. A reconciliation of reported net sales by segment is as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) was $186.2 million, in the second quarter of 2021 due to the impact of higher sales volumes and profitability initiatives. A reconciliation of organic adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) by segment is as follows:

  • Operating cash inflows during the second quarter amounted to $112.7 million in comparison to $77.6 million in the prior year period. The total leverage ratio per our credit agreements was below 2.3x. The trailing twelve month bank agreement pro-forma EBITDA was $666.0 million.
  • Cash balances at the end of the quarter were $395.6 million. Net debt, defined as debt excluding the unamortized discount associated with the Convertible Notes less cash, at the end of the 2021 fiscal second quarter amounted to $1.4 billion as compared to $1.6 billion at the end of fiscal 2020. Additionally, our current borrowing availability is approximately $2.1 billion.

“Across all three of our business segments we experienced strong incoming orders and have continued to add to our record backlog. We are gaining momentum as we benefit from market trends in all businesses and we have developed industry leading solutions for our customers to effectively navigate this evolution. In the near-term we are impacted by increasing supply chain disruptions that may adversely impact shipments, service levels and production. We are also experiencing record material cost increases. While these challenges will continue in the second half, we are confident in our ability to manage through this disruption as we position Middleby for 2022,” Mr. FitzGerald added.

"In Commercial Foodservice, our foodservice customers continue to address changing needs in a new business environment. Our solutions focus on the latest industry trends, such as automation to ease issues around labor availability and cost, the use of IoT for data capture and monitoring, and ventless technology that is used in non-traditional venues, such as ghost kitchens. Our equipment options for delivery, pick up and carry out are growing in popularity. We see our many strategic investments coming to fruition. While many of our customers are still facing the continued challenges from the pandemic, the demand for foodservice has proven resilient and the emerging trends will provide long-term growth opportunities.”

“We continue to have consistent positive feedback from visitors to the Middleby Innovation Kitchens since opening earlier this year. Guests have a hands-on experience with our world-class team of chefs. The Middleby Innovation Kitchens allows our customers the opportunity to access all Middleby innovation as they evolve of their foodservice operations. In July, we debuted our new residential showroom attached to the Innovation Kitchens, bringing to life our shared commercial and residential product innovations in one state-of-the-art facility,” commented Mr. FitzGerald.

“At our Residential Kitchen businesses, high demand for our portfolio of premium appliances continues as remodeling projects and new home builds remain strong. We are excited about the addition of Novy to this growing platform of premium brands as they are highly complementary to our current offerings. Novy products are focused on the built-in segment of the residential market which is growing internationally. The brand has meaningful synergies with our current portfolio leading to sales growth opportunities in our established U.S. and U.K. markets and further expansion into the European market.”

“At the Food Processing Group, we are securing orders in new markets including cured meats, alternative proteins, and pet food. Our most recent innovations have been well-received in the marketplace, including the Alkar TurboChef oven and the Maurer-Atmos accelerated drying room technology, which allow us to expand our product offerings in new and targeted markets. There is significant interest in automation solutions which directly addresses labor issues and employee safety concerns,” concluded Mr. FitzGerald.

(2) Adjusted diluted weighted average number of shares was calculated based on excluding the dilutive effect of shares to be issued upon conversion of the notes to satisfy the amount in excess of the principal since the company's capped call offsets the dilutive impact of the shares underlying the convertible notes. The calculation of adjusted diluted earnings per share excludes the principal portion of the convertible notes as this will always be settled in cash.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The company supplements its consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis with this non-GAAP financial information to provide investors with greater insight, increase transparency and allow for a more comprehensive understanding of the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations from these results should be carefully evaluated. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release do not have standard meanings and may vary from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

The company believes that organic net sales growth, non-GAAP adjusted segment EBITDA, adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted per share measures are useful as supplements to its GAAP results of operations to evaluate certain aspects of its operations and financial performance, and its management team primarily focuses on non-GAAP items in evaluating performance for business planning purposes. The company also believes that these measures assist it with comparing its performance between various reporting periods on a consistent basis, as these measures remove from operating results the impact of items that, in its opinion, do not reflect its core operating performance including, for example, intangibles amortization expense, impairment charges, restructuring expenses, and other charges which management considers to be outside core operating results.

The company believes that free cash flow is an important measure of operating performance because it provides management and investors a measure of cash generated from operations that is available for mandatory payment obligations and investment opportunities, such as funding acquisitions, repaying debt and repurchasing our common stock.

The company believes that its presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful because it provides investors and securities analysts with the same information that Middleby uses internally for purposes of assessing its core operating performance.
