The Boston Beer Company, Inc. Reports Consolidated Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

The Boston Beer Company Inc. reported consolidated unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015. The company reported first quarter 2015 net revenue of $199.5 million, an increase of $15.7 million, or 8.5%, over the same period last year, mainly due to core shipment growth of 6%. Net income for the first quarter was $13.7 million, or $1.00 per diluted share, an increase of $5.4 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, from the first quarter of 2014. This increase was primarily due to shipment increases and slightly improved gross margins. Operating income was $22.138 million against $13.391 million a year ago. Income before income tax provision was $21.810 million against $13.251 million a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $21.225 million against net cash used in operating activities of $8.810 million a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was $18.688 million against $44.170 million a year ago. The company has left unchanged its projected 2015 earnings per diluted share of between $7.10 and $7.50. The company's actual 2015 earnings per share could vary significantly from the current projection. Underlying the company's current projection are the following estimates and targets: gross margin of between 51% and 53%. Increased expenditures of between $10 million to $15 million for continued investment in Traveler and other existing brands developed by Alchemy & Science brands, which are included in the full-year estimated increases in advertising, promotional and selling expenses. These estimates could change significantly and 2015 volume from these brands is unlikely to cover these and other potential Alchemy & Science brand investments. Effective tax rate of approximately 38% based upon current tax laws and underlying regulations. Estimated capital spending of between $80 million and $110 million, which could be higher, depending on capital required to meet future growth. These estimates include capital investments for existing Alchemy & Science projects of between $3 million and $5 million.
