Corby Spirit and Wine Limited Reports Its Fiscal 2022 Fourth Quarter Results and Year Ended June 30, 2022 and Announces Dividend of $0.24 per Share.

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Aug. 24, 2022 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Limited ("Corby" or the "Company") (TSX: CSW.A) (TSX: CSW.B) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2022. 

Quarterly Dividend declared of $0.24 per share, up 14% vs last year.
Continued solid Q4 performance with Adjusted Revenue +4% vs last year (Reported Revenue +2%).
Full year FY22 Adjusted Revenue growth +2% vs last year (Reported Revenue flat).

QUARTERLY DIVIDEND.A-B

The Corby Board of Directors is pleased to declare a dividend of $0.24 per Voting Class A Common Share and Non-Voting Class B Common Share of the Company, in line with our dividend policy. This dividend is payable on September 30, 2022 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on September 16, 2022.

CONSUMER TREND

Consumer demand increased on a full year basis, mostly driven by a strong recovery of the on-premise channel and International markets growth, while the retail channel remained flat cycling strong performance at liquor boards last year. Q4 confirmed that positive trend driven by the on-premise channel.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

Adjusted Revenue for the fourth quarter was up 4% compared to the same period last year, leading to full year growth of +2% compared to the same period last year. Hampered by supply chain challenges especially over the second quarter and cycling the one-off sale of aged bulk last year (Reported Revenue +2% in Q4, flat in full year) we achieved:

  • Solid domestic performance +2% in full year;
  • Robust gross commissions performance +4% in full year excluding the impact of accelerated amortization of representation rights (Reported commissions revenue net of amortization down 7%); and
  • Growing international market performance +3% in full year.

Marketing, sales and administrative expenses were up 8% for the full fiscal year, cycling a low-cost base during the pandemic last year, and returning to FY19 pre-pandemic levels (+1% 3-year CAGR).

As a result, Adjusted Net Earnings decreased by 8% for the full fiscal year 2022 compared to last year (Reported Net Earnings -24% in full year FY22). However, those results are showing solid growth versus FY19 pre-pandemic levels by +3% CAGR (Reported Net Earnings -3% CAGR).

Nicolas Krantz, Corby's CEO, stated,

"Despite the challenging global environment with high inflation and continued supply chain issues, Corby delivered another robust quarter leading to a full-year Adjusted Operating Revenue of +2% resulting in consistent growth over the last 3 years (+3% CAGR).

This gives us confidence to bring back our advertising and promotional investment to pre-pandemic levels to fuel momentum on our strategic brands and invest in our organization to sustain future growth.

We continue to pursue our strategy to connect consumers to our brands, win market share in key categories and build strong relationships with our partners, while our digital transformation is on track to build competitive advantage in the mid-term."

For further details, please refer to Corby's Management's Discussion and Analysis and consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes for the three-months and year ended June 30, 2022, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Management believes the non-GAAP measures defined above are important supplemental measures of operating performance and highlight trends in the core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures.

Management believes that these measures allow for assessment of the Company's operating performance and financial condition on a basis that is more consistent and comparable between reporting periods.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Revenue to Adjusted Revenue, Earnings from Operations to Adjusted Earnings from Operations and Net Earnings to Adjusted Net Earnings to their most directly comparable financial measures for the three-months and year ended June 30, 2022, and 2021:

Adjusted Revenue is equal to revenue for the period adjusted to remove the amortization related to the Pernod Ricard Representation Agreements.

Adjusted Earnings from Operations is equal to earnings from operations before interest and taxes for the period adjusted to remove the amortization related to the Pernod Ricard Representation Agreements and a non-cash impairment charge related to the Foreign Affair Winery.

Adjusted Net Earnings is equal to net earnings for the period adjusted to remove the amortization related to the Pernod Ricard Representation Agreements, net of tax calculated using an effective tax rate of 26.9% in both the Q4 and YTD periods (2021 – 25.9% and 26.4%, respectively) and a non-cash impairment charge related to the Foreign Affair Winery.

Adjusted earnings per share and Adjusted diluted earnings per share are computed in the same way as basic earnings per share and diluted earnings per share using Adjusted Net Earnings as the numerator.

CAGR is the compounded annual growth rate at which a quantity or amount grows over time. 

Please refer to the "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" section of our MD&A for the three-months and year ended June 30, 2022 as filed on SEDAR for further information regarding Non-GAAP measures.
