FEMSA Announces First Quarter 2016 Results

 

Monterrey, Mexico, April 28, 2016 — Fomento Económico Mexicano, S.A.B. de C.V. (“FEMSA”) announced today its operational and financial results for the first quarter of 2016.

 

· Since the acquisition of its first drugstore chain in May of 2013, FEMSA Comercio has consolidated the results of its drugstore operations. Given the growing importance and significant potential of this segment, already representing more than ten percent of FEMSA consolidated revenues, and in a permanent effort to refine our disclosure to better communicate our performance, we are making incremental changes to the way we present FEMSA Comercio’s results. As of the first quarter of 2016, FEMSA Comercio’s results are split into three divisions: Fuel, referring only to that business, Health, which includes all our drugstore and related operations, and Retail, encompassing OXXO and all other operations of FEMSA Comercio. This is also consistent with how senior management and decision makers look at operating and financial information. Therefore, the Retail Division’s first quarter 2016 results exclude any contribution from the Health or Fuel Divisions.

 

First Quarter 2016 Highlights:

 

· FEMSA consolidated total revenues and income from operations grew 31.7% and 16.4% compared to the first quarter of 2015, driven by solid growth across segments, and reflecting the integration of Socofar into FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division. On an organic basis [1] total revenues and income from operations increased 12.0% and 12.2%, respectively.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Retail Division total revenues grew 15.6% and income from operations increased 27.8% , each as compared to the first quarter of 2015, reflecting new store openings and robust 8.8% growth in same-store sales for OXXO.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Health Division total revenues amounted to Ps. 9.512 billion compared to Ps. 988 million in the first quarter of 2015 and income from operations increased from Ps. 42 million in the first quarter of 2015 to Ps. 249 million in the same period of 2016 , reflecting the integration of Socofar and Farmacon.

 

· FEMSA Comercio – Fuel Division total revenues amounted to Ps. 6.078 billion compared to Ps. 1.659 billion in the one-month period of March 2015; income from operations amounted to Ps. 29 million compared to Ps. 30 million in the one-month period of March 2015 .

 

· Coca-Cola FEMSA total revenues increased 7.9% and income from operations grew 9.0% compared to the first quarter of 2015, reflecting volume growth in Mexico and a solid average price per unit case increase in most of the territories, despite adverse foreign exchange pressures across key markets.

 

 

[1] Excludes non-comparable results from operations at FEMSA Comercio for the last twelve months.

 

 

 

 

Carlos Salazar Lomelín, FEMSA’s CEO, commented: “We started the year on a solid note. FEMSA Comercio as a whole, including its three divisions and recently acquired operations, increased its revenues by 58.8 percent versus the first quarter of last year, and we are investing and adding talent to enable further growth. At its Retail Division, we continued to see strong comparable growth and profitability gains at OXXO, supported by our in-store initiatives and execution as well as by a robust macroeconomic backdrop in Mexico, while taking advantage of positive calendar shifts around the Easter holidays and the leap year. Our drugstore operations, now presented separately as the Health Division, include the results of Socofar and are also performing strongly, while allowing us to grow our store base and to invest in the integration of a single operating platform in Mexico. For its part, the Fuel Division is facing some temporary headwinds driven by a national price reduction and by our sustained rapid expansion strategy, both of which put short-term pressure on margins, but as we increase our scale over time we should be in a position to drive profits. At Coca-Cola FEMSA we achieved robust revenue growth in Mexico as well as market share and profitability gains in several key markets, even in the face of sustained macroeconomic and foreign exchange pressure, which makes us optimistic about the outlook for the business.

 

Beyond our operations, we keep working hard to position ourselves to continue taking advantage of our balance sheet flexibility as we pursue the many strategic opportunities ahead.”

 

FEMSA Consolidated

 

Total revenues increased 31.7% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 85.856 billion in 1Q16, driven by solid growth across segments and reflecting the integration of Socofar in FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division. On an organic basis 1 , total revenues increased 12.0% compared to 1Q15.

 

Gross profit increased 21.4% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 31.183 billion in 1Q16. Gross margin decreased 310 basis points compared to the same period in 2015 to 36.3% of total revenues, reflecting the incorporation and growth of lower margin businesses in our Health and Fuel Divisions.

 

Income from operations increased 16.4% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 6.818 billion in 1Q16. On an organic basis 1 income from operations increased 12.2% in 1Q16 compared to the same period in 2015. Consolidated operating margin decreased 110 basis points compared to 1Q15, to 7.9% of total revenues, driven by the faster growth of FEMSA Comercio’s three divisions, whose lower margins tend to compress FEMSA’s consolidated margins over time.

 

Net consolidated income increased 0.2% compared to 1Q15 to Ps. 4.356 billion in 1Q16, mainly as a result of growth in FEMSA’s income from operations, which offset lower net income from our participation in Heineken, which had a difficult comparison base, and higher non-operating and financing expenses.

 

The effective income tax rate was 31.8% in 1Q16 compared to 32.5% in 1Q15.

 

Net majority income for 1Q16 was Ps. 0.84 per FEMSA Unit 2 . Net majority income per FEMSA ADS was US$ 0.49 for the first quarter of 2016.

 

Capital expenditures decreased slightly to Ps. 3.141 billion in 1Q16 compared to Ps. 3.256 in 1Q15.

 

Our consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2016 recorded a cash balance of Ps. 50.407 billion (US$ 2.928 billion), an increase of Ps. 20.992 billion (US$ 1.219 billion) compared to December 31, 2015 and reflecting the proceeds from the recent Euro 1 billion bond placement. Short-term debt was Ps. 5.925 billion (US$ 344.2 million), while long-term debt was Ps. 102.460 billion (US$ 5.952 billion). Our consolidated net debt balance was Ps. 57.978 billion (US$ 3.368 billion).

FEMSA Comercio - Retail Division

 

Total revenues increased 15.6% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 30.451 billion in 1Q16, reflecting the opening of 137 net new stores in the quarter and reaching 1,191 total new store openings for the last twelve months. As of March 31, 2016, FEMSA Comercio’s Retail Division had a total of 14,198 OXXO stores. OXXO’s same-store sales increased by an average of 8.8% for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to 1Q15, driven by an 8.3% increase in average customer ticket and a slight increase in store traffic.

 

Gross profit increased 16.7% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 10.489 billion in 1Q16, resulting in a 30 basis point gross margin expansion to 34.4% of total revenues. This expansion mainly reflects a positive mix shift due to the growth of higher margin categories, including services, and a more efficient use of promotion-related marketing resources.

 

Income from operations increased 27.8% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 1.574 billion in 1Q16. Operating expenses increased 15.0% compared to 1Q15, to Ps. 8.915 billion, well below revenue growth, reflecting operating leverage as well as contained selling expenses in spite of the growing number of stores. Operating margin expanded 50 basis points compared to 1Q15 to 5.2% of total revenues in 1Q16.

 

FEMSA Comercio - Health Division

 

Total revenues amounted to Ps. 9.512 billion in 1Q16. On an organic basis 1 total revenues increased 20.6%. As of March 31, FEMSA Comercio’s Health Division had a total of 1,935 points of sale across our territories, reflecting the recent integration of Socofar and the opening of 35 net new stores in the quarter. Same-store sales increased by an average of 10.6% for the first quarter of 2016 as compared to 1Q15.

 

Gross profit amounted to Ps. 2.647 billion for 1Q16, resulting in a 280 basis point gross margin expansion to 27.8% of total revenues and reflecting higher gross margins at Socofar.

 

Income from operations amounted to Ps. 249 million for 1Q16. Operating expenses reached Ps. 2.398 billion in 1Q16. Operating margin contracted 170 basis points compared to 1Q15, to 2.6% of total revenues in 1Q16, reflecting a relatively higher operating expense structure at Socofar. On an organic basis, [1] 1 income from operations decreased 6.6%, reflecting operating deleverage from our accelerated unit growth, as well as higher expenses as we build infrastructure and prepare for further growth, while strengthening our three drugstore operations in Mexico and integrating them into a single platform.

 

FEMSA Comercio - Fuel Division

 

Total revenues amounted to Ps. 6.078 billion in 1Q16, an increase of Ps. 4.419 billion compared to the one month period of March 2015, when total revenues were Ps. 1.659 billion. As of March 31, 2016, OXXO GAS had a total of 319 service stations, adding 12 net new service stations in the quarter and reaching 87 net new service stations for the last twelve months. Same-station sales were flat for the month of March of 2016 compared to March of 2015, as same-station volume increased 2.2% while the average revenue per liter decreased by 2.5%, reflecting the national price decrease instituted at the beginning of the year.

 

Gross profit amounted to Ps. 465 million in 1Q16. Gross margin decreased 10 basis points to 7.7% of total revenues, reflecting the impact of lower prices on existing inventories at the time of the price decrease.

 

Income from operations amounted to Ps. 29 million in 1Q16. Operating expenses were Ps. 436 million in 1Q16. Operating margin contracted 130 basis points compared to March 2015 to 0.5% of total revenues in 1Q16, reflecting several factors: i) operating deleverage driven by a decrease in prices and by an accelerated growth rate in new service stations that take some time to ramp up; ii) the ongoing expansion of our management structures to accommodate rapid growth across more territories; and iii) increased regulation costs.

Message from the Chief Executive Officer

 

“Leveraging our pricing flexibility, together with our operating and financial discipline, we delivered a solid set of results across our markets to kick off the year. Our transactions continued to outperform volumes in key markets such as Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina, and we protected our margins across most of our operations. Despite a tough economic and volatile currency environment, our comparable revenues and operating income increased by 9% and 10%, respectively, resulting in earnings per share growth of 11%.

 

Among our highlights for the quarter, we generated double-digit top-line growth in Mexico and Colombia, driven by our solid volumes, transactions, and prices above inflation; we extended our track record of market share gains in Brazil, while continuing to deliver strong defensive margins; and we expanded Argentina’s EBITDA margins by 280 basis points. Furthermore, our Philippines operation delivered accelerated volume and transaction growth and, most importantly, improved profitability.

 

Looking forward, we have the right people, capabilities, and strategies to continue delivering value throughout our operations,” 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 April 21, 2016 of 354.0757 bolivars per US dollar.

 

Comparable figures:

Revenues: Comparable total revenues grew 9.1% to Ps. 34,615 million driven by average price per unit case growth across most of our operations and volume growth in Mexico, Colombia and Central America.

 

Transactions: The comparable number of transactions outpaced volume growing 4.0% to 4,609.3 million. Transactions of our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 3.6% driven by the positive performance of Mexico, which increased 6.0%, Colombia, which grew 8.6%, and Central America which grew 4.8%. Transactions of water, including bulk water, grew 2.0% driven by the performance of Colombia and Argentina. Our still beverage category increased transactions by 8.9%, mainly driven by Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Central America.

 

Volume: Comparable sales volume grew 2.2% to 765.6 million unit cases in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015. Our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 1.7% mainly driven by Mexico and Colombia, which offset a contraction in Brazil and Argentina . Volume of our bottled water portfolio increased 3.4% driven by Brisa in Colombia, and Aquarius and Bonaqua in Argentina. Our still beverage category increased 10.5% driven by Vallefrut , del Valle juice and Santa Clara in Mexico; Fresh and Fuze in Colombia and Hi-C in Argentina. Volume of our bulk water portfolio decreased 0.4% mainly due to a decline of Brisa in Colombia and Ciel in Mexico.

 

Gross profit: Comparable gross profit grew 8.6% to Ps. 15,855 million with a gross margin contraction of 20 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 first quarter of 2016 the other operative expenses net line recorded an expense of Ps. 26 million, which compares to an expense of Ps. 174 million during the first quarter of 2015.

 

Equity method: T he comparable reported share of the profits of associates and joint ventures line recorded a gain of Ps. 59 million in the first quarter of 2016, which compares to a gain of Ps. 2 million recorded in the first 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 10.1% to Ps. 4,642 million with a 10 basis points margin expansion, reaching 13.4% in the first quarter of 2016.

 

Operating cash flow: Comparable operating cash flow grew 8.4% to Ps. 6,516 million with a margin contraction of 20 basis points as compared to the same period of 2015.

 

Comprehensive financing results: Our comparable comprehensive financing result in the first quarter of 2016 recorded an expense of Ps. 1,345 million, as compared to an expense of Ps. 1,247 million in the same period of 2015.

 

Income tax: During the first quarter of 2016, comparable income tax as a percentage of income before taxes was 25.6% as compared to 29.8% in the same period of 2015. The lower tax rate in 2016 resulted from the recording of (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 grew 10.9% to Ps. 2,344 million in the first quarter of 2016, resulting in earnings per share (EPS) of Ps. 1.13 (Ps. 11.31 per ADS).

Balance Sheet (1)

 

As of March 31, 2016, we had a cash balance of Ps. 18,223 million, including US$ 544 million denominated in U.S. dollars, an increase of Ps. 2,234 million compared to December 31, 2015. This difference was mainly driven by cash flow generation across our territories and the effect of the depreciation of the Mexican peso as applied to our U.S. dollar denominated cash position.

 

As of March 31, 2016, total short-term debt was Ps. 3,939 million and long-term debt was Ps. 63,953 million. Total debt increased by Ps. 1,162 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 decreased Ps. 1,072 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 8.5%. The following charts set forth the Company’s debt profile by currency and interest rate type and by maturity date as of March 31, 2016.

Mexico & Central America Division

(Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama)

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.

 

Comparable figures:

Revenues: Comparable total revenues from our Mexico and Central America division increased 9.8% to Ps. 19,240 million in the first quarter of 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015, mainly driven by accelerated volume growth and an average price per unit case increase of 6.1% in Mexico. Our division’s comparable average price per unit case, which is presented net of taxes, grew 5.0%, reaching Ps. 41.82.

 

Transactions: Total transactions in the Mexico and Central America division grew 5.6%, ahead of volume performance, totaling 2,623.3 million in the first quarter of 2016. Transactions of our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 5.8%, driven by a 4.1% increase in transactions of brand Coca-Cola and a 15.7% increase in flavored sparkling beverages in Mexico, and a 4.8% increase of our sparkling beverages in Central America. Our still beverage category increased transactions by 10.3%, mainly driven by Mexico, which generated close to 23 million incremental transactions. Transactions of water, including bulk water, decreased 2.4% driven by a decline in Mexico.

 

Volume: Total sales volume increased 4.6% to 459.9 million unit cases in the first quarter of 2016, as compared to the same period of 2015. Volume in Mexico increased 4.6% and volume in Central America increased 6.2%. Mexico’s positive volume performance was driven by growth in every region, highlighting 14% growth in the Northeast and 6% growth in the Bajio region. Our sparkling beverage category increased 5.4%, mainly driven by growth of brand Coca-Cola , Mundet and the recently launched Limon&Nada and Naranja&Nada in Mexico. Our still beverage category grew 13.2% mainly driven by the performance of Vallefrut , the del Valle portfolio and Santa Clara in Mexico. Our personal water portfolio including bulk water decreased 0.5%.

 

Gross profit: Comparable gross profit grew 9.0% to Ps. 9,568 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015, with a margin decrease of 40 basis points to reach 49.7%. Lower PET prices in the division, in combination with our currency hedging strategy, were offset by higher prices of sugar and the depreciation of the average exchange rate of the Mexican peso as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs.

 

Operating income: Comparable operating income in the division grew 14.3% to Ps. 2,815 million in the first quarter of 2016, with a margin expansion of 50 basis points to reach 14.6%. Our operating expenses in the division as a percentage of sales grew 40 basis points.

 

Operating cash flow: Comparable operating cash flow grew 8.4% to Ps. 3,990 million in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period in 2015. Our comparable operating cash flow margin was 20.7%, with a margin decrease of 30 basis points.

 

As reported figures

South America Division

(Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina)

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 April 21, 2016 of 354.0757 bolivars per US dollar.

 

Comparable figures:

Revenues: Comparable total revenues grew 8.3% reaching Ps. 15,376 million, driven by average price per unit case growth across our territories and volume growth in Colombia. Revenues of beer in Brazil accounted for Ps. 1,549 million in the first quarter of 2016.

 

Transactions: Comparable transactions in the division grew 1.9% totaling 1,986.1 million in the first quarter of 2016. Transactions of our sparkling beverage portfolio grew 0.6%, mainly driven by the positive performance of Colombia, which compensated for a decline in Brazil and Argentina. Our still beverage category increased transactions by 7.2%, driven by Colombia and Argentina. Transactions of water, including bulk water, increased 5.9% driven by growth in Colombia and Argentina.

 

Volume: Comparable total sales volume in our South America division decreased 1.4% to 305.7 million unit cases in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the same period of 2015. Our water category, including bulk water, grew 5.9% driven by Brisa in Colombia, and Aquarius and Bonaqua in Argentina. The still beverage category grew 7.3% favored by the performance of del Valle Fresh and Fuze Tea in Colombia, and Hi-C and Fuze in Argentina. Our sparkling beverage category decreased 2.9%, driven by a 4.9% decline in Brazil and a 10.1% contraction in Argentina, which was partially offset by a 9.8% volume growth in Colombia.

 

Gross profit: Comparable gross profit increased 7.9% with a margin decrease of 20 basis points, as a result of higher prices of sugar and the depreciation of the average exchange rate of our division’s currencies as applied to our U.S. dollar-denominated raw material costs, which offset lower PET prices, in combination with our currency hedging strategy.

 

Operating income: Comparable operating income grew 4.3% to Ps. 1,827 million, with a margin decrease of 40 basis points as compared to the same period of the previous year.

 

Operating cash flow: Comparable operating cash flow grew 11.4% to Ps. 2,527 million, reaching an operating cash flow margin of 16.4% and recording a margin expansion of 40 basis points as compared to the same period of 2015.

 

As reported figures

Revenues: Reported total revenues grew 3.0% to Ps. 17,857 million in the first quarter of 2016. Reported total volume decreased 4.0% driven by volume declines in Brazil, Venezuela and Argentina, which were partially offset by growth in Colombia.

 

Gross profit: Reported gross profit grew 2.0% to Ps. 7,347 million in the first quarter of 2016 and gross profit margin contracted 30 basis points to 41.1%.

 

Operating income: Our reported operating income declined 1.1% to Ps. 2,093 million in the first quarter of 2016, and operating income margin reached 11.7%, a contraction of 50 basis points.

 

Operating cash flow: Reported operating cash flow grew 9.2% to reach Ps. 3,041 million in the first quarter of 2016, resulting in a margin of 17.0%, an expansion of 90 basis points.

Philippines Operation

 

For the first quarter of 2016, volume grew 16.5% favored by the performance of brand Coca-Cola and our “core” flavored sparkling beverage portfolio, in both single- and multi-serve presentations, which accounted for 90% of the incremental volume in the period. Our recently launched 8oz returnable glass presentation, “Timeout”, continues driving positive performance, generating 85 million incremental transactions during the quarter. Transactions grew 14.1% during the period. For the beginning of the year our Philippines operation delivered encouraging top-and bottom-line performance, contributing positively to the company’s consolidated results.

 

Recent developments

 

· On March 7, 2016, Coca-Cola FEMSA held its Annual Ordinary General Shareholders Meeting during which its shareholders approved the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015, the annual report presented by the Board of Directors, the declaration of dividends corresponding to fiscal year 2015 and the composition of the Board of Directors and the Finance and Planning, Audit, and Corporate Practices Committees for 2016. Shareholders approved the payment of a cash dividend in the amount of Ps. 6,944 million, or the equivalent of Ps. 3.35 per share, to be paid in two installments as of May 3, 2016 and November 1, 2016.
· Due to the ongoing volatility of the “ Divisa Complementaria ” (DICOM) exchange rate (formerly known as SIMADI), we have decided to use the DICOM exchange rate published on April 21, 2016 to translate our Venezuelan operating results into our reporting currency, the Mexican peso. As of such date, the exchange rate of DICOM was 354.0757 bolivars per US dollar. Consequently, Venezuela’s contribution to our consolidated results has adjusted, and Venezuela now represents 6% of volume, 7% of revenues, 5% of operating income and 2% of net income.
