The impact of the Pretzels, Dot's and Lily's Sweets, LLC (Lily's) acquisitions is anticipated to be a 4- to 5-point benefit to net sales growth for the full-year 2022.

 

The company is also updating guidance on the following:

  • A reported and adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 14% to 15%, a slight reduction versus the prior outlook, driven by timing and value of renewable energy tax credits;
  • Other expense, which primarily reflects the write-down of equity investments that qualify for tax credits, of approximately $205 million, higher than the previous outlook to reflect an increased amount of renewable energy tax credits;
  • Interest expense of approximately $135 million to $140 million, reflecting higher interest rates on commercial paper; and
  • Capital expenditures of approximately $600 million.

Below is a reconciliation of projected 2022 and full-year 2021 earnings per share-diluted calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) to non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share-diluted:

The company presents certain percentage changes in net sales on a constant currency basis, which excludes the impact of foreign currency exchange.  To present this information for historical periods, current period net sales for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the average monthly exchange rates in effect during the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year, rather than at the actual average monthly exchange rates in effect during the current period of the current fiscal year.  As a result, the foreign currency impact is equal to the current year results in local currencies multiplied by the change in the average foreign currency exchange rate between the current fiscal period and the corresponding period of the prior fiscal year.

Third-Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results 

Consolidated net sales increased 15.6% to $2,728.2 million in the third quarter of 2022, including a 4.1-point benefit from the acquisitions of Pretzels and Dot's.  Organic, constant currency sales increased 11.8%.  List price increases along with strong consumer demand and favorable price elasticities drove balanced growth across segments.

Reported gross margin was 40.6% in the third quarter of 2022, compared to 45.0% in the third quarter of 2021, a decrease of 440 basis points.  Adjusted gross margin was 42.5% in the third quarter of 2022, a decrease of 180 basis points compared to the third quarter of 2021.  Raw material, packaging and logistics inflation, labor investments, and higher supply chain costs from sustained consumer demand contributed to these declines, as well as an unfavorable mix from recent acquisitions.  These headwinds were partially offset by net price realization and volume gains.  Derivative mark-to-market losses further contributed to the decline in reported gross margin.

Selling, marketing and administrative expenses increased 13.5% in the third quarter of 2022 versus the third quarter of 2021, primarily driven by higher corporate expenses and acquisition-related costs.  Higher corporate expenses were driven by incremental capability and technology investments, higher incentive compensation and broad-based marketplace inflation.  Advertising and related consumer marketing expenses increased 5.4% in the third quarter of 2022 versus the same period last year.  Higher levels of advertising in response to improved supportability of confectionery brands and increased investment in salty snacks brands were partially offset by cost efficiencies related to new media partners.  Selling, marketing and administrative expenses, excluding advertising and related consumer marketing, increased 17.8% versus the third quarter of 2021.  This increase was driven by acquisition-related costs, including amortization, integration and operating expenses, as well as people, capability and technology investments.

Third-quarter 2022 reported operating profit was $556.6 million, a decrease of 3.2%, resulting in an operating profit margin of 20.4%, a decrease of 400 basis points.  These declines were driven by the previously mentioned gross margin declines, including derivative mark-to-market losses, and higher corporate and operating expenses, including acquisition-related integration costs.  Adjusted operating profit of $615.3 million increased 9.3% versus the third quarter of 2021 as pricing, volume and cost leverage more than offset inflation, elevated supply chain costs, acquisition-related costs and brand, capabilities, and people investments.  Despite higher adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating profit margin decreased by 130 basis points to 22.6%, as inflation and investment outpaced sales growth.

The reported effective tax rate in the third quarter of 2022 was 15.6%, an increase of 90 basis points versus the third quarter of 2021.  The adjusted effective tax rate was 15.9%, an increase of 120 basis points versus the third quarter of 2021.  Both the reported and adjusted effective tax rate increase were driven by higher utilization of capital losses in the prior-year period, as well as the timing of renewable energy tax credits.

The company's third-quarter 2022 results, as prepared in accordance with GAAP, included items positively impacting comparability of $58.7 million, or $0.23 per share-diluted.  For the third quarter of 2021, items negatively impacting comparability totaled $11.9 million, or $0.04 per share-diluted.

Segment performance for the third quarter of 2022 versus the prior-year period are detailed below. See the schedule on components of net sales growth and the schedule of supplementary information within this press release for additional information on segment net sales and profit.

North America Confectionery

Hershey's North America Confectionery segment net sales were $2,235.6 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of 10.4% versus the same period last year.  Organic, constant currency net sales increased 10.7%.  Net price realization was driven by mid to high single digit list price increases across the confectionery portfolio.  Earlier seasonal shipments versus the prior-year period and continued replenishment of distributor inventory levels offset modest declines in consumer demand to drive volume growth in the third quarter.

Hershey's U.S. candy, mint and gum (CMG) retail takeaway for the 12-week period ended October 2, 2022 in the multi-outlet plus convenience store channels (MULO+C) increased 12.2%, resulting in category market share gain of 23 basis points in the period.  Consumer demand for Hershey's products remained strong aided by improved supportability and higher levels of advertising in the 12-week period.  Retail sales of Hershey's chocolate products increased 12.6%, driving chocolate share gains of over 100 basis points.  This strength was driven by sustained on-the-go and at-home usage occasions, instant consumables' retail sales growth of 11.2% and take-home retail sales growth of 13.6%.  Within refreshment, Hershey's gum products increased 14.8%, driven by less mask-wearing, while retail trends for Icebreaker's mints continued to improve from supply chain challenges earlier this year.  Hershey's share of CMG remains up 111 basis points versus pre-pandemic levels.       

The North America Confectionery segment reported segment income of $706.8 million in the third quarter of 2022, reflecting an increase of 7.8% versus the prior-year period as pricing and volume gains offset inflation, incremental investments in labor and higher brand and capabilities investments, to drive segment income growth in the third quarter.  Inflation and investment outpaced sales growth, resulting in segment margin of 31.6% in the third quarter, a decrease of 80 basis points. 

North America Salty Snacks

Hershey's North America Salty Snacks segment net sales were $275.0 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of 86.9% versus the same period last year.  Sales from the acquisitions of Dot's and Pretzels were a 65.5-point benefit.  Organic, constant currency net sales growth was 21.4% driven by volume gains from strong consumer demand and net price realization.

Hershey's U.S. salty snack retail takeaway, including Dot's, in MULO+C increased 22.4% in the 12-week period ended October 2, 2022 driven by robust consumer demand.  Hershey's salty snacks growth outpaced the category resulting in 10 basis points of share gain in the 12-week period.  SkinnyPop brand retail sales increased 18.0%, resulting in ready-to-eat popcorn share gain of 120 basis points in the 12-week period.  Pirate's Booty products also continued to perform well with retail sales growth of 14.4%.  Both SkinnyPop and Pirate's Booty brands benefited from a strong back-to-school season with higher promotional activity in the third quarter, with multi-packs retail sales growth of 24.8% versus the prior-year period.  Dot's Homestyle Pretzels retail sales grew 34.2%, driven by increased distribution, new buyers and higher frequency among existing households.  This growth significantly outpaced category growth, resulting in a 200 basis points share gain of the pretzel category. 

North America Salty Snacks segment income increased 50.3% to $44.5 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared to $29.6 million in the third quarter of 2021.  Profit increases were driven by volume, price realization and acquisitions, which were partially offset by higher supply chain costs, unfavorable mix, acquisition-related costs and increased advertising spend.  The costs and investment outpaced sales growth in the third quarter, resulting in segment margin of 16.2%, a decrease of 390 basis points.

International

Third-quarter 2022 net sales for Hershey's International segment increased 15.4% versus the same period last year to $217.6 million.  Organic, constant currency net sales increased 16.6% driven by higher volumes from strong consumer demand and net price realization.

The International segment reported a $35.4 million profit in the third quarter of 2022, reflecting an increase of $15.8 million versus the prior-year period.  Sales volume growth and net price realization more than offset inflation to deliver a segment margin of 16.3%, an increase of 590 basis points versus the prior-year period.

Unallocated Corporate Expense

Hershey's unallocated corporate expense in the third quarter of 2022 was $171.4 million, an increase of $29.6 million, or 20.9%, versus the same period of 2021.  This increase was driven by capabilities and technology investments, including the upgrade of the company's ERP system and related amortization; and higher incentive, compensation and benefit cost.

Live Webcast

At approximately 7 a.m. (Eastern time) today, Hershey will post a pre-recorded management discussion of its third-quarter 2022 results and business update to its website at www.thehersheycompany.com/investors.  In addition, at 8:30 a.m. (Eastern time) today, the company will host a live question and answer session with investors and financial analysts.  Details to access this call are available on the company's website.

Note:  In this release, for the third-quarter 2022, Hershey references income measures that are not in accordance with GAAP because they exclude certain items impacting comparability, including gains and losses associated with mark-to-market commodity derivatives, business realignment activities, acquisition-related activities, and other miscellaneous losses and benefits.  The company refers to these income measures as "adjusted" or "non-GAAP" financial measures throughout this release.  These non-GAAP financial measures are used in evaluating results of operations for internal purposes and are not intended to replace the presentation of financial results in accordance with GAAP.  Rather, the company believes exclusion of such items provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison of past and present operations.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this release to their nearest comparable GAAP financial measures as presented in the Consolidated Statements of Income is provided below.

Appendix I

Details of the charges included in GAAP results, as summarized in the press release (above), are as follows:

Derivative mark-to-market losses (gains):  The mark-to-market losses (gains) on commodity derivatives are recorded as unallocated and excluded from adjusted results until such time as the related inventory is sold, at which time the corresponding losses (gains) are reclassified from unallocated to segment income.  Since we often purchase commodity contracts to price inventory requirements in future years, we make this adjustment to facilitate the year-over-year comparison of cost of sales on a basis that matches the derivative gains and losses with the underlying economic exposure being hedged for the period.

Business realignment activities:  We periodically undertake restructuring and cost reduction activities as part of ongoing efforts to enhance long-term profitability.  During the fourth quarter of 2020, we commenced the International Optimization Program to streamline resources and investments in select international markets, including the optimization of our China operating model to improve efficiencies and provide a more sustainable and simplified base going forward. During the third quarter of 2022 and 2021, business realignment charges related primarily to other third-party costs related to this program, as well as severance and employee benefit costs.

Acquisition-related activities:  During the third quarter of 2022, we incurred costs related to the integration of the 2021 acquisitions of Lily's, Dot's and Pretzels.  During the third quarter of 2021, we incurred costs to effectuate the Lily's acquisition.

Noncontrolling interest share of business realignment and impairment charges:  Certain of the business realignment and impairment charges recorded related to the divestiture of Lotte Shanghai Foods Co., Ltd. ("LSFC"), a joint venture in which we previously owned a 50% controlling interest.  Therefore, we have also adjusted for the portion of these charges included within the income (loss) attributed to the noncontrolling interest.

Other miscellaneous losses (benefits):  During 2022, we recorded a loss on the sale of non-operating assets located in Pennsylvania.  During 2021, we recorded a gain on the divestiture of LSFC, as well as a gain on a receivable previously deemed uncollectible.

Tax effect of all adjustments:  This line item reflects the aggregate tax effect of all pre-tax adjustments reflected in the preceding line items of the applicable table.  The tax effect for each adjustment is determined by calculating the tax impact of the adjustment on the company's quarterly effective tax rate, unless the nature of the item and/or the tax jurisdiction in which the item has been recorded requires application of a specific tax rate or tax treatment, in which case the tax effect of such item is estimated by applying such specific tax rate or tax treatment.
