BEF Foods, Inc. Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended January 23, 2015; Provides Sales Guidance for the Fiscal 2015
Mar 3 15
BEF Foods, Inc. reported unaudited earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended January 23, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported operating income of $9,658,000 compared to $1,376,000 a year ago. Net sales were $106.8 million, an increase of $7.2 million, or 7.2%, compared to net sales of $99.6 million in the corresponding period last year. The increase resulted from $2.8 million of net sausage pricing and a 21.9% increase in side-dish volume, partially offset by lower sausage, food service, and frozen product volume. Overall, total pounds sold increased 5.5% compared to the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating income was $11.6 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $2.2 million in the corresponding period last year. The primary drivers of the $9.4 million increase were: $4.3 million of cost of goods sold favorability resulting from improved production yields, decreased sow and trim costs ($1.2 million), and the favorable impact of sales mix resulting from the growth in the company's higher-margin refrigerated side dish product line; $1.6 million of labor cost favorability due primarily to reduced headcount as a result of last year's plant network consolidation and improved plant efficiencies; a $1.0 million decline in other operating expenses due primarily to plant startup costs impacting the prior year period; and approximately $2.5 million of sales leverage.
For the nine months period, the company reported operating income of $10,307,000 against $3,876,000 for the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP operating income from continuing operations was $14,417,000 against $9,574,000 for the same period a year ago. Net Sales were $285,105,000 against $276,624,000 for the same period a year ago.
For the fiscal year 2015, the company expects net sales to be $370 million to 380 million.
