Ingredion Incorporated Reports Third Quarter 2021 Results and Raises Full Year Adjusted Earnings Expectation

  • Third quarter 2021 reported and adjusted EPS* were $1.75 and $1.67, respectively, compared to third quarter 2020 reported and adjusted EPS of $1.36 and $1.77, respectively.
  • The Company expects full year 2021 adjusted EPS to be in the range of $6.65-$7.00, up from the previously provided full year outlook of $6.45-$6.85.

WESTCHESTER, Ill., Nov. 02, 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 third 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 outstanding top-line performance of 17% net sales growth in the quarter resulting from well managed sales execution to fulfill strong customer demand. Every region achieved double-digit sales growth through a clear focus on managing price mix and partnering with customers to meet changing demand requirements as a result of global supply chain constraints. At the same time, we kept pace with higher input costs to deliver reported operating income up 12% and adjusted operating income down 9%, against previously anticipated high double-digit corn cost inflation,” said Jim Zallie, Ingredion’s president and chief executive officer.

“Once again, our specialty ingredients growth platforms achieved double-digit increases in net sales, which outpaced the remainder of our portfolio. During the quarter, we generated the largest specialty sales growth from our sugar reduction and specialty sweeteners platform, driven by customer wins from PureCircle and strong demand recovery globally. In addition, consumers’ heightened focus on nutrition and wellness is underpinning the robust demand we are seeing for our clean & simple, texture and plant-based protein solutions,” continued Zallie.

“More broadly, we continue to execute on our Driving Growth Roadmap to strategically shape our portfolio for the future. During the quarter, we completed the contribution of our Argentina business to the Arcor joint venture, reducing our exposure to currency volatility and high fructose corn syrup,” added Zallie. “Our teams are actively addressing the difficult challenges brought on by global supply chain constraints and rising inflation, to continue to serve customers, just as we have throughout the disruptions and uncertainty of the pandemic. I am incredibly proud of our employees as they engage each day to create lasting value for our stakeholders.”

*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.

*** Reported results reflect a finalized $340 million net asset impairment charge, net of a $20 million favorable adjustment in the third quarter of 2021, which reduced the $360 million asset impairment charge recorded in the first quarter, related to the contribution of the Company’s Argentina operations to the Arcor joint venture.

Financial Highlights

  • At September 30, 2021, total debt and cash including short-term investments were $2.1 billion and $438 million, respectively, versus $2.2 billion and $665 million, respectively, at December 31, 2020.
  • Net financing costs for the third quarter were $20 million, down compared to the year-ago reported financing costs driven by the early debt extinguishment charges that were excluded from prior year adjusted net income.
  • Reported and adjusted effective tax rates for the third quarter were 22.2 percent and 21.5 percent, respectively, compared to 30.1 percent and 26.2 percent, respectively, in the year-ago period. The decrease in reported tax rate resulted primarily from U.S. foreign tax credits and other one-time adjustments. These items were partially offset by a change in value of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar.
  • Year-to-date net capital expenditures were $186 million, down $64 million from the year-ago period.

Net Sales

  • Third quarter and year-to-date net sales were up from the year-ago period, driven by strong price mix including the pass through of higher corn costs, and higher volumes, including PureCircle and KaTech results. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, net sales were up 17 percent and 16 percent for the quarter and year-to-date, respectively.

Operating Income

  • Third quarter reported and adjusted operating income were $172 million and $163 million, respectively, an increase of 12 percent and a decrease of 9 percent, respectively, from the same period last year. The increase in reported operating income was driven by a favorable adjustment to the net asset impairment related to the contribution of Argentina assets to the Arcor joint venture, which was partially offset by higher corn and manufacturing costs, including costs associated with the ramp-up of plant-based protein operations in our South Sioux City and Vanscoy facilities. The decrease in adjusted operating income was driven by higher corn and manufacturing costs, including the costs associated with the ramp-up of plant-based protein operations. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, reported and adjusted operating income were up 11 percent and down 10 percent, respectively, from the same period last year.
  • Year-to-date reported and adjusted operating income were $224 million and $572 million, respectively, a decrease of 47 percent and an increase of 21 percent, respectively, from the year-ago period. The decrease in reported operating income was attributable to the net asset impairment charge related to the contribution of the Company’s Argentina assets to the Arcor joint venture and higher corn and manufacturing costs, which were partially offset by strong price mix and higher volumes. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, reported and adjusted operating income were down 49 percent and up 19 percent, respectively, from the same period last year.
  • Third quarter reported operating income was higher than adjusted operating income by $9 million driven by a favorable adjustment to the net asset impairment related to the contribution of Argentina assets to the Arcor joint venture which was partially offset by Cost Smart-related restructuring costs.
  • Year-to-date reported operating income was lower than adjusted operating income by $348 million primarily due to the net asset impairment charge related to the contribution of the Company’s Argentina assets to the Arcor joint venture.

  • Third quarter operating income was $23 million, down $2 million from the year-ago period, and year-to-date operating income was $86 million, an increase of $13 million from a year ago. For the third quarter, the decrease was driven by higher corn and energy costs in Pakistan. Year-to-date, the increase was largely attributable to lower net corn 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 July 2021, a quarterly cash dividend of $0.64 per share was paid to shareholders of record on July 1, 2021, totaling $43 million bringing total year-to-date dividend payments to $138 million. In September 2021, the Company increased the quarterly dividend by $0.01 to $0.65 per share, the seventh consecutive annual increase in the dividend.

Ingredion repurchased $44 million of outstanding shares of common stock in the third quarter. This brings Ingredion’s total year-to-date share repurchases in 2021 to $68 million.

2021 Full Year Outlook
The Company now expects full year 2021 adjusted EPS to be in the range of $6.65-$7.00 compared to adjusted EPS of $6.23 in 2020, and up from the previously provided full year outlook of $6.45-$6.85. 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 20 to 25 percent driven by favorable price mix; Asia-Pacific operating income is expected to be up high single-digits driven by higher volumes; EMEA operating income is expected to be up high single-digits driven by higher volumes partially offset by higher input costs; 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 high single-digits.

Cash from operations for the full year is expected to be in the range of $450 million to $550 million, which includes an increase in expected working capital due to higher expected net sales and the impact of higher corn costs on inventory. Capital expenditures for the full year are anticipated to be between $320 million and $350 million.

For the full year, the Company expects a reported effective tax rate of 46.0 percent to 51.0 percent and an adjusted effective tax rate of 25.5 percent to 27.0 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 provision (benefit), 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.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP measure is provided in the tables below.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $5 million and $8 million of pre-tax charges 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 nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded pre-tax charges of $3 million and pre-tax benefits of $4 million, respectively related to its equity method investments in Amyris, Inc (“Amyris”) and Ingrear Holdings, S.A, the Arcor joint venture.

As part of the Amyris equity method investment, 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 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 nine months ended September 30, 2021. The gain on the transaction is partly offset by $1 million of acquisition charges for the nine months ended September 2021. Additionally, the equity method acquisition charges presented in the “reconciliation of adjusted net income attributable to Ingredion” table are shown net of acquisition gains attributable to non-controlling interest of $1 million.

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 year.

During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $6 million of pre-tax restructuring/impairment charges, consisting of $4 million of employee-related and other costs, including professional services, associated with its Cost Smart SG&A program and $2 million of restructuring-related charges primarily in North America and APAC as part of its Cost Smart Cost of sales program.

(iv) During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded a $340 million net asset impairment charge related to the contribution of the Company’s Argentina operations to the Arcor joint venture. The impairment charge reflects a $29 million write-down to the agreed upon fair value of certain Argentina, Chile and Uruguay assets and liabilities contributed and a $311 million write-off of the cumulative translation losses related to the contributed net assets. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded a $20 million favorable adjustment to the impairment upon finalization of the transaction, which reduced the $360 million asset impairment charge recorded in the first quarter.

(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 nine months ended September 30, 2021 within Other income (expense), net in the Condensed Consolidated Income statement.

The Company recorded the storm damage costs within Other (income) expense, net on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

(ix) 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 provision of $5 million and a tax benefit of $6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and a tax provision of $4 million and $16 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively as a result of the movement of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar during the periods.
