Deverl Maserang, President and CEO said, “As I previously communicated last quarter, despite COVID-19, we are cautiously optimistic as we see measurable progress and completion of key initiatives. As announced earlier this week, our West Coast distribution center is now operational and we are excited to return to California, where we expect to see improved service for our customers and distribution efficiencies on the West Coast. Further, our handheld technology has been fully implemented across our DSD network and we will complete the transition out of our Houston, Texas facility in the coming quarter. I want to personally thank all the team members across the organization that have worked so hard to bring these projects to completion.

Net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 were $104.6 million, a decrease of $47.9 million, or 31.4%, from the prior year period. The decrease in net sales was driven primarily by lower sales of coffee, beverage and allied products sold through our DSD network due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During our fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2020, sales from our DSD customers declined by 41% compared to prior year same quarter due to COVID-19. Although we experienced improvements early in the current quarter ended December 31, 2020 to where our weekly sales were down 32% from pre-COVID levels, due to the surge in the U.S. of COVID-19 cases later in the quarter, our DSD revenues deteriorated back to approximately 40% compared to prior year same quarter. The largest DSD revenue declines were from restaurants, hotels and casino channels. This still represents significant improvement since the worst effects on our business from COVID-19 in April 2020 when DSD sales were down by approximately 65% to 70%. Our direct ship sales declined 13% compared to the prior year period due to lower coffee volume related to COVID-19 and the impact of coffee prices for our cost plus customers, partially offset by improved volume from our retail business, key grocery stores under their private labels, and third party e-commerce platforms.

Gross profit in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was $26.3 million, a decrease of $17.7 million, or 40.3% from the prior year period and gross margin decreased to 25.1% from 28.8% from the prior year period. The decrease in gross profit was primarily driven by lower net sales of $47.9 million partially offset by lower cost of goods sold. The decrease in gross margin was impacted by COVID-19 and the unfavorable impact it had on our customer mix, partially offset by lower production variances, lower write-down of slow moving inventories, lower freight costs and lower coffee brewing equipment costs resulting from the various costs savings initiatives we have implemented.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 increased compared to prior year period at $36.4 million, from $35.1 million, and as a percentage of net sales increased to 34.8% compared to 23.0% of net sales, in the prior year period. Operating expenses were impacted by a $9.9 million decrease in net gains realized from sales of assets, a $0.3 million increase in general and administrative expenses and a $1.2 million of fixed assets impairment, partially offset by a $10.1 million decrease in selling expenses. During the current quarter, we completed the sale of two branch properties for a net gains of $1.2 million compared to the prior year quarter sales of the Houston manufacturing facility and four branch properties for total gains of $11.4 million. The increase in general and administrative expenses was associated primarily with one-time severance and strategic costs saving action taken during the current quarter, partially offset by reductions in third party costs and reductions in headcount due to COVID-19. The fixed assets impairment is primarily related to the write-off of the remaining balance of our previous route handheld equipment since we completed the implementation of new route handheld equipment. The decrease in selling expenses was primarily driven by reductions in headcount, lower DSD sales commissions and lower travel expenses.

Interest expense in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 was flat at $2.9 million principally due to the write-off of deferred finance cost related to our debt amendment and the amortization of de-designated interest rate swap costs, offset by lower pension interest expense.

Other, net in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 increased by $7.4 million to $9.1 million in the quarter compared to $1.7 million in the prior year period. The increase in Other, net was primarily a result of higher amortized gains on our postretirement medical benefit plan due to the curtailment announced in March 2020 and higher mark-to-market net gains on coffee-related derivative instruments not designated as accounting hedges.

Income tax expense was $13.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to income tax benefit of $0.1 million in the prior year period. The income tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 included $13.5 million of previously deferred non-cash tax expense in accumulated other comprehensive income associated with gains on the postretirement medical plan in prior years. Upon termination of this plan on December 31, 2020, the deferred non-cash tax expense was recognized in net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The tax benefit in the three months ended December 31, 2019 was primarily driven by change in previously recorded valuation allowance and change in our estimated deferred tax liability.

As a result of the foregoing factors, net loss was $17.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to net income of $7.8 million in the prior year period. Net loss available to common stockholders was $17.9 million, or $1.02 per common share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to net income available to common stockholders of $7.6 million, or $0.44 per common share, in the prior year period.

Our capital expenditures for the six months ended December 31, 2020 were $9.6 million, representing lower maintenance capital spend of $3.7 million, a 49.8% reduction compared to the prior year period, and various capital investment spending of $5.9 million. The spending reductions were driven by several key initiatives put in place, including a focus on refurbished CBE equipment to drive cost savings, and reductions across some capital categories due to additional cost controls implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of December 31, 2020, the outstanding debt on our revolver was $82.0 million, a decrease of $40.0 million since June 30, 2020. Our cash balance decreased by $54.2 million, from $60.0 million as of June 30, 2020, to $5.9 million as of December 31, 2020. These changes resulted from the repayments on our revolver completed under the terms of our amended credit facility. The net deterioration in our liquidity was due to our investment in inventory, capital expenditures to fund certain key growth initiatives, and pension funding requirements that were previously deferred under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

As of January 26, 2021, our total debt was $82.0 million and we had cash on hand of $6.6 million and $38.7 million of availability on our amended credit facility.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to net (loss) income determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating performance:

“EBITDA” is defined as net (loss) income excluding the impact of:

  • income taxes;
  • interest expense; and
  • depreciation and amortization expense.

“EBITDA Margin” is defined as EBITDA expressed as a percentage of net sales.

“Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as net (loss) income excluding the impact of:

  • income taxes;
  • interest expense (benefit);
  • (loss) income from short-term investments;
  • depreciation and amortization expense;
  • ESOP and share-based compensation expense;
  • non-cash impairment losses;
  • non-cash pension withdrawal expense;
  • restructuring and other transition expenses;
  • severance costs;
  • proxy contest-related expenses;
  • non-recurring costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • net gains and losses from sales of assets;
  • non-cash pension settlements and postretirement benefits curtailment; and
  • acquisition, integration and strategic costs.

“Adjusted EBITDA Margin” is defined as Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of net sales.

For purposes of calculating EBITDA and EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, we have excluded the impact of interest expense resulting from the adoption of ASU 2017-07, non-cash pretax pension and postretirement benefits resulting from the amendment and termination of certain Farmer Bros. pension and postretirement benefits plans and severance because these items are not reflective of our ongoing operating results.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company’s operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Further, management utilizes these measures, in addition to GAAP measures, when evaluating and comparing the Company’s operating performance against internal financial forecasts and budgets.

We believe that EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of certain items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. These potential differences may be caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense). We also present EBITDA and EBITDA Margin because (i) we believe that these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry, (ii) we believe that investors will find these measures useful in assessing our ability to service or incur indebtedness, and (iii) we use these measures internally as benchmarks to compare our performance to that of our competitors.

EBITDA, EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, as defined by us, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We do not intend for non-GAAP financial measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
