FEMSA Announces Second Quarter 2016 Results

 

 

Monterrey, Mexico, July 27, 2016 — Fomento Económico Mexicano, S.A.B. de C.V. (“FEMSA”) announced today its operational and financial results for the second quarter of 2016.

 

Second Quarter 2016 Highlights:

 

· FEMSA consolidated total revenues increased 25.9% and income from operations grew 13.0% compared to the second quarter of 2015, mainly driven by the integration of Socofar into FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division and solid growth at FEMSA Comercio’s Retail Division. On an organic basis 1 total revenues increased 12.6% and income from operations grew 8.1%.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Retail Division achieved growth in total revenues of 12.6% and income from operations of 11.9% compared to the second quarter of 2015 , reflecting solid growth in new store openings and a 5.1% increase in same-store sales.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Health Division total revenues amounted to Ps. 10.413 billion compared to Ps. 1.181 billion in the second quarter of 2015, and income from operations increased from Ps. 27 million in the second quarter of 2015 to Ps. 327 million in the same period of 2016 , mainly reflecting the integration of Socofar. On an organic basis 1 total revenues grew 18.5%.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Fuel Division total revenues increased 35.1% compared to the second quarter of 2015.

 

· Coca-Cola FEMSA total revenues increased 9.3% and income from operations grew 6.6% compared to the second quarter of 2015, reflecting growth in the average price per unit case across most operations and volume growth in Mexico and Central America. On a currency neutral basis and excluding Venezuela, total revenues and income from operations grew 9.1% and 12.0%, respectively.

 

Carlos Salazar Lomelín, FEMSA’s CEO, commented: “We continued to make solid progress during the second quarter. FEMSA Comercio as a whole, including its three divisions, increased its revenues by 41 percent versus the second quarter of last year. At its Retail Division, we again saw strong comparable growth and profitability gains at OXXO, even after accounting for a slightly negative calendar effect in April, and we made a small acquisition in Chile that should allow us to build a relevant convenience store presence in that market over time. Our drugstore operations also performed well, allowing us to continue investing in the integration of a single operating platform in Mexico, while expanding our store base both organically and through a small bolt-on acquisition in Mexico. For its part, the Fuel Division saw some sequential improvements in profitability even as we continue with our sustained rapid expansion strategy and we begin the re-branding of our stations into the new OXXO GAS image. At Coca-Cola FEMSA we again achieved robust growth in Mexico as well as pricing, market share and profitability gains in several key markets, even against continued macroeconomic and foreign exchange pressure. So all in all, encouraging trends across our platform.

 

 

 

 

1 Excludes non-comparable results and significant acquisitions in the last twelve months.

 

   

 

 

As we begin the second half, we remain cautiously optimistic. Particularly in Mexico, where we will be facing demanding comparison bases the rest of the year, and we need to redouble efforts to keep the strong growth going. But we believe we have more opportunities than challenges ahead.”

 

FEMSA Consolidated

 

Total revenues increased 25.9% compared to 2Q15 to Ps. 94.543 billion in 2Q16, mainly driven by the integration of Socofar in FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division and solid growth across segments. On an organic basis 1 total revenues grew 12.6% compared to 2Q15.

 

For the first half of 2016, consolidated total revenues increased 28.2% compared to the same period in 2015 to Ps. 180.015 billion, mainly driven by the integration of Socofar in FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division and to solid growth across segments. On an organic basis 1 , total revenues for the first half of 2016 increased 11.9% compared to the same period in 2015.

 

Gross profit increased 20.2% compared to 2Q15 to Ps. 35.328 billion in 2Q16. Gross margin decreased 170 basis points compared to the same period in 2015 to 37.4% of total revenues, reflecting the incorporation and growth of lower margin businesses in FEMSA Comercio’s Health and Fuel Divisions.

 

For the first half of 2016, gross profit increased 20.3% compared to the same period in 2015 to Ps. 66.347 billion. Gross margin decreased 240 basis points compared to the same period in 2015 to 36.9% of total revenues reflecting again the incorporation and growth of lower margin businesses in FEMSA Comercio’s Health and Fuel Divisions.

 

Income from operations increased 13.0% compared to 2Q15 to Ps. 9.409 billion in 2Q16. On an organic basis 1 income from operations increased 8.1% compared to the same period in 2015. Consolidated operating margin decreased 110 basis points compared to 2Q15, to 10.0% of total revenues in 2Q16, driven by the faster growth of FEMSA Comercio’s three divisions, whose lower margins tend to compress FEMSA’s consolidated margins over time.

 

For the first half of 2016, income from operations increased 14.0% compared to the same period in 2015 to Ps. 16.185 billion. On an organic basis 1 , income from operations increased 9.4%. Our consolidated operating margin year-to-date decreased 110 basis points to 9.0% as a percentage of total revenues as compared to the same period of 2015.

 

Our effective income tax rate was 26.9% in 2Q16 compared to 33.6% in 2Q15.

 

Net consolidated income increased 16.2% compared to 2Q15 to Ps. 6.156 billion in 2Q16, mainly as a result of growth in FEMSA’s income from operations, which more than offset higher financing and non-operating expenses. As is customary, for 2Q16 we are using Heineken’s 1Q16 net income figure translated at the 2Q16 exchange rate.

 

For the first half of 2016, net consolidated income increased 8.8% to Ps. 10.501 billion compared to the same period of 2015, mainly driven by growth in our income from operations.

 

 

 

 

1 Excludes non-comparable results and significant acquisitions in the last twelve months.

 

  2 July 27, 2016

 

 

Net majority income for 2Q16 was Ps. 1.36 per FEMSA Unit 2 . Net majority income per FEMSA ADS was US$ 0.74 for the second quarter of 2016. For the first half of 2016, net majority income per FEMSA Unit 2 was Ps. 2.20 (US$ 1.19 per ADS).

 

Capital expenditures amounted to Ps. 4.711 billion in 2Q16, reflecting higher investments across segments.

 

Our consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2016 recorded a cash balance of Ps. 49.956 billion (US$ 2.701 billion), an increase of Ps. 20.541 billion (US$ 1.111 billion) compared to December 31, 2015. Short-term debt was Ps. 5.458 billion (US$ 295 million), while long-term debt was Ps. 108.003 billion (US$ 5.840 billion). Our consolidated net debt balance was Ps. 63.505 billion (US$ 3.434 billion).

 

FEMSA Comercio – Retail Division

 

Total revenues increased 12.6% compared to 2Q15 to Ps. 34.197 billion in 2Q16, reflecting the opening of 263 net new OXXO stores in the quarter to reach 1,196 total net new store openings for the last twelve months. As of June 30, 2016, FEMSA Comercio’s Retail Division had a total of 14,461 OXXO stores. OXXO’s same-store sales increased an average of 5.1% for the second quarter of 2016 over 2Q15. This performance was driven by a 5.6% increase in average customer ticket and a slight decrease of 0.5% in store traffic.

 

For the first half of 2016, total revenues increased 14.0% compared to the same period in 2015 to Ps. 64.649 billion. OXXO’s same-store sales increased an average of 6.8% compared to the same period in 2015, driven by a 6.8% increase in average customer ticket and stable store traffic.

 

Gross profit increased by 17.6% in 2Q16 compared to 2Q15, resulting in a 150 basis point gross margin expansion to 36.4% of total revenues. This expansion mainly reflects an increase in our commercial income activity and the sustained growth of the services category, including income from financial services. For the first half of 2016, gross margin expanded by 100 basis points compared to the same period in 2015 to 35.5% of total revenues.

 

Income from operations increased 11.9% over 2Q15 to Ps. 2.764 billion in 2Q16. Operating expenses increased 19.4% in 2Q16 to Ps. 9,689 billion, reflecting the strengthening of OXXO’s business and organizational structure to maintain the fast pace of growth, as well as improvements to the incentive structures for our in-store personnel. Operating margin remained stable during 2Q16, at 8.1% of total revenues.

 

For the first half of 2016, income from operations increased 17.1% compared to the same period in 2015 to Ps. 4.337 billion, resulting in an operating margin of 6.7%, representing a 20 basis point expansion from the same period in the prior year.

 

FEMSA Comercio – Health Division

 

Total revenues amounted to Ps. 10.413 billion in 2Q16 compared to Ps. 1.181 billion reached in the same period of the prior year. On an organic basis 1 total revenues increased 18.5%. As of June 30, 2016 FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division had a total of 2,034 points of sale across our territories, reflecting the addition of 99 net new stores in the quarter including a small acquisition in Mexico. Same-store sales in Mexico increased by an average of 7.7% for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to 2Q15.

Same-store sales in Mexico increased an average of 9.1% compared to the same period in 2015.

Operating margin expanded 80 basis points compared to 2Q15, to 3.1% of total revenues in 2Q16, reflecting higher margins at Socofar that more than offset higher expenses in Mexico, as we continue to build infrastructure and prepare for further growth while we integrate Yza, Moderna and Farmacon into a single operating platform. On an organic basis 1 , income from operations decreased 46.2%, reflecting the initiatives described above.

  

For the first half of 2016, income from operations amounted to Ps. 576 million compared to Ps. 68 million reached in the same period in 2015, resulting in an operating margin of 2.9%, which represents a 20 basis point contraction from the same period in the prior year.

Gross profit increased by 39.2% in 2Q16 compared to 2Q15, resulting in a 20 basis point gross margin expansion to 7.9% of total revenues. For the first half of 2016, gross profit increased by 94.0% compared to the comparable period in 2015 as described above. Gross margin expanded by 10 basis points compared to the comparable period in 2015 to 7.8% of total revenues.

Recent Developments

  

· On June 06, 2016 FEMSA Comercio announced that it acquired Big John, a leading convenience store operator based in Santiago, Chile. Following its acquisition of a majority stake in Chilean drugstore operator Socofar in the second half of 2015, FEMSA Comercio reiterated its appetite to pursue incremental growth opportunities in the region by acquiring Big John, which operates 49 stores mainly in the Santiago metropolitan area. This transaction represents another important step for FEMSA Comercio as it brings its considerable expertise in the convenience store format to the Chilean market, acquiring a strong local operator with a leading banner and attractive growth prospects while establishing a solid base from which to expand in the region.

 

· Coca-Cola FEMSA (KOF) and The Coca-Cola Company (KO) have reached a new, broad cooperation framework. This cooperation framework seeks to maintain a mutually beneficial business relationship over the long-term, which will allow both companies to focus on continuing to drive the business forward and generating profitable growth; and contemplates the following main objectives:

 

o Long term guidelines to the relationship economics: concentrate prices for sparkling beverages in Mexico will gradually increase over a 3-year period beginning in July 2017. Based on our internal estimates for revenues and sales volume mix, we currently expect the incremental annual cost in Mexico, on an annualized basis, to be approximately US$35 million for the years 2017, 2018, and 2019.

 

o Both companies are committed to implement marketing and commercial strategies, and productivity programs to maximize their profitability. KOF is confident that these initiatives will mitigate the effects of concentrate price adjustments.

 

o Potential future concentrate price adjustments for sparkling beverages and flavored water in Mexico, will consider investment and profitability levels that are beneficial to the business of KOF and KO.

 

· The Coca-Cola Company also recognizes Coca-Cola FEMSA’s strong operating model and execution capabilities. With respect to KO’s Bottling Investments Group territories it may divest in the future, we have reached an understanding with KO to assess, on a preferred basis, the acquisition of specific territories in Latin America, the United States and other regions.

Message from the Chief Executive Officer

 

“Our operating and financial discipline, coupled with our company’s balanced geographic footprint, drove solid top- and bottom-line results for the quarter. As transactions continued to outperform volumes, we maintained share gains in key markets such as Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina. We also leveraged our pricing flexibility to deliver comparable revenue and EBITDA growth of 9% and 13%, respectively—expanding margins despite ongoing currency volatility and a very challenging consumer environment in South America.

 

We carry on creating opportunities to further our growth across our operations. In Venezuela, despite a complex sugar supply environment, we are reinforcing our non-caloric sparkling beverage portfolio to continue providing appealing beverage alternatives for our consumers. In the Philippines, we continue to achieve double-digit transaction and volume growth, while improving this franchise’s profitability. Moreover, through our centers of excellence, we are accelerating the transformation of our operating models—highlighted by the initial rollout of our KOFmmercial Digital Platform in Mexico.

 

We are very enthusiastic that we reached a new, broad cooperation framework with our partner, The Coca-Cola Company. This framework aims to maintain a mutually beneficial business relationship over the long term, allowing both companies to focus on continuing to drive the business and generate profitable growth going forward. As we establish the long-term guidelines for our economic relationship, including adjustments to concentrate prices of sparkling beverages over a three-year period in Mexico, we are ready to capture the next wave of inorganic growth through an understanding to assess, on a preferred basis, the acquisition of specific territories within KO’s Bottling Investments Group in Latin America, the United States, and other regions—ultimately enabling Coca-Cola FEMSA to consolidate its position as a truly diversified multicultural, multi-category global leader,” said John Santa Maria, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Consolidated Results

 

Comparable means, with respect to a year-over-year comparison, the change in a given measure excluding the effects of (i) mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, (ii) translation effects resulting from exchange rate movements and (iii) the results of hyperinflationary economies in both periods. From our operations, only Venezuela qualifies as a hyperinflationary economy. In our “as reported” figures, our Venezuelan operation’s results were translated into Mexican pesos using the DICOM exchange rate published on June 30, 2016 of 628.3434 bolivars per US dollar.

 

Comparable figures:

 

Revenues: Comparable total revenues grew 9.1% to Ps. 38,536 million driven by average price per unit case growth across most of our operations and volume growth in Mexico and Central America.

 

Transactions: The comparable number of transactions outpaced volume growth, increasing 5.3% to 4,835.4 million. Transactions of our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 4.6% driven by the positive performance of Mexico, which increased 8.4%, Central America which grew 6.3% and Brazil, which grew 1.5%. Transactions of water, including bulk water, grew 10.1% driven by the performance of Mexico, Colombia, Central America and Argentina. Our still beverage category increased transactions by 7.2%, mainly driven by Mexico, Colombia, and Central America.

 

Volume: Comparable sales volume grew 2.6% to 809.7 million unit cases in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015. Our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 1.3% mainly driven by Mexico and Central America, which offset a contraction in Brazil, Argentina and Colombia . Volume of our bottled water portfolio increased 13.0% driven by Ciel and Ciel Exprim in Mexico, Brisa in Colombia, and Bonaqua in Argentina. Our still beverage category increased 8.6% mainly driven by Vallefrut orangeade, del Valle juice, FUZE tea and Santa Clara . Volume of our bulk water portfolio increased 2.5% mainly driven by growth of Ciel in Mexico, Kin in Argentina and Crystal in Brazil, which offset a decline of Brisa bulk water in Colombia.

 

Gross profit: Comparable gross profit grew 7.2% to Ps. 18,037 million with a gross margin contraction of 80 basis points in the period. In local currency, the benefit of lower PET prices, in combination with our currency hedging strategy, was offset by higher price of sugar and the depreciation of the average exchange rate of the Argentine Peso, the Brazilian Real, the Colombian Peso and the Mexican Peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs.

 

Other operative expenses: On a comparable basis, during the second quarter of 2016, the other operative expenses net line recorded an expense of Ps. 49 million, which compares to an expense of Ps. 186 million during the second quarter of 2015.

 

Equity method: T he comparable reported share of the profits of associates and joint ventures line recorded a gain of Ps. 211 million in the second quarter of 2016, which compares to a gain of Ps. 179 million recorded in the second quarter of 2015, mainly due to a positive contribution of our stake in Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines, Inc., which compensated for a loss in the equity method from our participation in our non-carbonated beverage joint-venture in Brazil.

 

Operating Income: Comparable operating income grew 12.0% to Ps. 6,098 million with a 40 basis points margin expansion, reaching 15.8% in the second quarter of 2016.

 

Operating cash flow: Comparable operating cash flow grew 12.5% to Ps. 7,989 million with a margin expansion of 60 basis points to 20.7% in the second quarter of 2016.

 

Comprehensive financing results: Our comparable comprehensive financing result in the second quarter of 2016 recorded an expense of Ps. 2,815 million, as compared to an expense of Ps. 1,569 million in the same period of 2015. The difference was mainly driven by (i) a foreign exchange loss as a result of the quarterly depreciation of the Mexican peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated net debt position and (ii) higher interest expenses in Mexican pesos, mainly driven by the effect of the depreciation of the Mexican peso as applied to our interest payments denominated in U.S. dollars and Brazilian reals.

 

Income tax: During the second quarter of 2016, comparable income tax as a percentage of income before taxes was 26.3% as compared to 31.3% in the same period of 2015. The lower tax rate in 2016 resulted from (i) certain tax efficiencies across our operations, (ii) a lower effective tax rate in Colombia and (iii) ongoing efforts to reduce non-deductible items across our operations.

 

Net income: Comparable net controlling interest income declined 12.7% to Ps. 2,205 million in the second quarter of 2016, resulting in earnings per share (EPS) of Ps. 1.06 (Ps. 10.64 per ADS).

Balance Sheet (1)

 

As of June 30, 2016, we had a cash balance of Ps. 15,646 million, including US$ 522 million denominated in U.S. dollars, a decrease of Ps. 343 million as compared to December 31, 2015. This difference was mainly driven by debt and interest payments, the payment of the first installment of the dividend in the amount of Ps. 3,462 million and negative currency translation effects, net of the cash flow generation across our territories.

 

As of June 30, 2016, total short-term debt was Ps. 3,355 million and long-term debt was Ps. 68,020 million. Total debt increased by Ps. 4,645 million, compared to year end 2015 mainly due to the negative translation effect resulting from the depreciation of the end of period exchange rate of the Mexican peso as applied to our U.S. dollar denominated debt position. Net debt increased by Ps. 4,988 million compared to year end 2015.

 

The weighted average cost of debt for the quarter, including the effect of debt swapped to Brazilian reals at a floating rate, was 9.1%. The following charts set forth the Company’s debt profile by currency and interest rate type and by maturity date as of June 30, 2016.

Volume: Comparable sales volume grew 2.4% to 1,575.0 million unit cases in the first six months of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015. Our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 1.5% driven by Mexico, Colombia and Central America, which offset a contraction in Brazil and Argentina . Our still beverage category increased 9.6% driven by Vallefrut , del Valle juice and Santa Clara in Mexico; Fresh and Fuze in Colombia and Hi-C in Argentina. Volume of our bottled water portfolio increased 8.4% driven by Ciel in Mexico, Brisa in Colombia, and Bonaqua in Argentina. Volume of our bulk water portfolio increased 1.1% mainly due to Cie l in Mexico, Kin in Argentina and Crystal in Brazil, which compensated for a decline of Brisa in Colombia.

 

Gross profit: Comparable gross profit grew 7.8% to Ps. 33,892 million with a gross margin contraction of 60 basis points in the period. In local currency, the benefit of lower PET prices, in combination with our currency hedging strategy, was offset by higher price of sugar and the depreciation of the average exchange rate of the Argentine Peso, the Colombian Peso, the Brazilian Real, and the Mexican Peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs.

 

Other operative expenses: On a comparable basis, during the first six months of 2016, the other operative expenses net line recorded an expense of Ps. 75 million, which compares to an expense of Ps. 361 million during the same period of 2015.

 

Equity method: T he comparable reported share of the profits of associates and joint ventures line recorded a gain of Ps. 270 million in the first six months of 2016, which compares to a gain of Ps. 181 million recorded in the same period of 2015, mainly due to a positive contribution of our stake in Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines, Inc., which compensated for a loss in the equity method from our participation in our non-carbonated beverage joint-venture in Brazil.

 

Operating Income: Comparable operating income grew 11.2% to Ps. 10,740 million with a 30 basis points margin expansion, reaching 14.7% in the first six months of 2016.

 

Operating cash flow: Comparable operating cash flow grew 11.2% to Ps. 14,505 million with a margin expansion of 30 basis points as compared to the same period of 2015.

 

Comprehensive financing results: Our comparable comprehensive financing result in the first six months of 2016 recorded an expense of Ps. 4,160 million, as compared to an expense of Ps. 2,817 million in the same period of 2015. The difference was mainly driven by (i) a foreign exchange loss as a result of the depreciation of the Mexican peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated net debt position and (ii) higher interest expenses in Mexican pesos, mainly driven by the effect of the depreciation of the Mexican peso as applied to our interest payments denominated in U.S. dollars and Brazilian reals.

 

Income tax: During the first six months of 2016, comparable income tax as a percentage of income before taxes was 26.0% as compared to 30.6% in the same period of 2015. The lower tax rate in 2016 resulted from (i) certain tax efficiencies across our operations, (ii) a lower effective tax rate in Colombia and (iii) ongoing efforts to reduce non-deductible items across our operations.

 

Net income: Comparable net controlling interest income decreased 2.0% to Ps. 4,550 million in the first six months of 2016, resulting in earnings per share (EPS) of Ps. 2.19 (Ps. 21.95 per ADS).

Philippines Operation

For the first six months of 2016, volume grew 12.9% favored by the performance of brand Coca-Cola, which grew more than 20% and 13% growth in our “core” flavored sparkling beverage portfolio. Our single-serve “Mismo” one-way PET presentation continued to support growth in flavored sparkling beverages, while our 8-ounce returnable glass bottle, “Timeout” is being expanded to our “core” flavored sparkling beverage portfolio. On the multi-serve front, our 750-ml “Kasalo” returnable glass presentation continues to generate incremental volumes. Total transactions in the first six months of the year grew 12.8%, in line with volume growth. In the first half of the year, our Philippines operation continues to deliver encouraging top-and bottom-line performance, while expanding margins.

 

Recent Developments

· KOF and The Coca-Cola Company (KO) have reached a new, broad cooperation framework. This cooperation framework seeks to maintain a mutually beneficial business relationship over the long-term, which will allow both companies to focus on continuing to drive the business forward and generating profitable growth; and contemplates the following main objectives:
o Long term guidelines to the relationship economics: concentrate prices for sparkling beverages in Mexico will gradually increase over a 3-year period beginning in July 2017. Based on our internal estimates for revenues and sales volume mix, we currently expect the incremental annual cost in Mexico, on an annualized basis, to be approximately US$35 million for the years 2017, 2018, and 2019.

o Both companies are committed to implement marketing and commercial strategies, and productivity programs to maximize their profitability. KOF is confident that these initiatives will mitigate the effects of concentrate price adjustments.

o Potential future concentrate price adjustments for sparkling beverages and flavored water in Mexico, will consider investment and profitability levels that are beneficial to the business of KOF and KO.

· The Coca-Cola Company also recognizes Coca-Cola FEMSA’s strong operating model and execution capabilities. With respect to KO’s Bottling Investments Group territories it may divest in the future, we have reached an understanding with KO to assess, on a preferred basis, the acquisition of specific territories in Latin America, the United States and other regions.

Currently, the only operation that qualifies as a hyperinflationary economy is Venezuela. In preparing this measure, management has used its best judgment, estimates and assumptions in order to maintain comparability.
