Within this, Germany grew 6.0% on a like-for-like basis, and UK and Italy saw reduced rates of decline year-on-year compared to the prior quarter, as the Group activated core "Must Win Battles".
  • Gross profit declined €2.0 million year-on-year. Adjusting for currency impacts and chart of account alignments, like-for-like growth was €3.7 million, driven by an improved mix from the growth of "Must Win Battles" and overlapping increased promotional investment in the three months ended December 31, 2015.
  • Gross margin increased by 1.5% driven by higher margin "Must Win Battles" sales and channel mix.
  • Advertising & promotions ("A&P") investment was €10.4 million higher year-on-year.

  • Indirect costs were €2.5 million lower. Adjusting for currency impacts and chart of account alignments, indirect costs were flat year-on-year.
  • Resulting As Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was €62.1 million, representing 12.8% of revenues. The year-on-year decline of €9.1 million is predominantly driven by the increased A&P in the three months ended December 31, 2016.
  • As Adjusted Earnings per Share decreased by 4 Euro cents year-on-year, due to the decline in As Adjusted profit for the period.

  • Revenue was down €124.0 million or 6.0%, year-on-year. Adjusting for currency and the like-for-like impacts of the exit from Russia, an additional trading day in 1Q 2016 due to the leap year, chart of account alignments and the business acquisition of La Cocinera in Spain, the decline was 4.0%. As has been the case throughout the year, the decline in sales was driven by the Group's three largest markets, namely the UK, Italy and Germany, although each of these markets has shown a steady improvement each quarter in the rate of decline year-on-year, with Germany returning to growth in the three months ended December 31, 2016.
  • Gross profit declined €33.7 million driven primarily by lower sales volumes. Adjusting for currency impacts and the like-for-like impacts of the exit from Russia, an additional trading day in 1Q 2016 due to the leap year, chart of account alignments and the business acquisition of La Cocinera in Spain the decline was €18.7 million, driven by lower sales volumes, the operational issues in Sweden in the first half of the year, the raw material shortage in Italy until the end of the third quarter and the weakening of the Euro against the US Dollar. Better pricing and promotional management provided considerable mitigation to these impacts.
  • Gross margin increased by 0.1%, driven by pricing year-on-year, improved trade terms management, offset by an adverse mix, the impact of the lower harvest volumes and the dilutive effect of the La Cocinera acquisition.
  • Advertising & promotions investment was €6.4 million lower year-on-year. Adjusting for currency impacts and the like-for-like impacts of the exit from Russia and chart of account alignments, A&P was flat year-on-year.
  • Indirect costs were €20.5 million lower year-on-year. Adjusting for currency impacts and the like-for-like impacts of the exit from Russia and the business acquisition of La Cocinera in Spain, indirect costs were €14.3 million lower year-on-year. This reduction was due to synergy realisation, the benefits from the Group's lean reorganisation programme and the year on year impact of zero bonus payout in 2016.
  • Resulting YTD 2016 As Adjusted EBITDA was €324.9 million, representing 16.9% of revenues.
  • As Adjusted Earnings per Share decreased by 4 Euro cents year-on-year, due to the decrease in As Adjusted profit year-on-year.

Management Comments

Stéfan Descheemaeker, Nomad Foods' Chief Executive Officer, stated, "2016 marked an important milestone for Nomad Foods. We made meaningful progress against our objectives: firstly stabilising sales by progressively slowing the rate of decline in the top line through the execution of our "Must Win Battles" strategy, secondly delivering on our synergy commitments from the Findus acquisition, and thirdly generating strong cash flow to drive consolidation within the global food industry. We believe our ability to generate significant cash flow, along with an improving operational foundation, positions us to consider strategic acquisitions in 2017 and beyond. We continue to make excellent progress with like-for-like sales moving into positive territory in 1Q17, an encouraging development that we expect will continue throughout 2017."

Noam Gottesman, Nomad Foods' Co-Chairman and Founder, commented, "We delivered growth in our core portfolio during 4Q 2016 and will stabilize our top-line during 1Q 2017. Our strategy is clearly working.  We look forward to growth during 2017, as we continue our journey to build a leading, global consumer foods company."

As Adjusted, Pro Forma As Adjusted, Like-for-like and Constant Currency Financial Information

As Adjusted financial information presented in this press release reflects the historical reported financial statements of Nomad Foods, adjusted for share based payment charges, exceptional items and non-cash foreign currency translation charges/gains.

Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information presented in this press release is based on the historical financial statements of Nomad Foods and assumes full period contribution of the Iglo Group and the Findus Group for the period presented. The Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information has been prepared to reflect the acquisition of both the Iglo Group and the Findus Group and the changes in the financing structure associated with the acquisition of both Groups.

The Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information was not prepared in accordance with the SEC's rules and standards relating to pro forma financial information and does not reflect the cost of any integration or benefits from the acquisition of the Iglo Group and Findus Group that may be derived in the future.

Like-for-like ("LFL") is an adjusted measurement of our operating results. This comparison of current and prior period performance takes into consideration only those activities that were in effect during both time periods. Like-for-like is a method of valuation that attempts to exclude any effects of expansion, acquisitions, disposals, closures, chart of account ("CoA") alignments, trading day impacts or any other event that artificially impact the comparability of our results.

Constant currency financial information  presented in this press release discloses certain financial measures on a constant currency basis, such as revenue, gross profit, other operating expenses and As Adjusted EBITDA that are not prepared in accordance with IFRS and are therefore, considered to be non-IFRS financial measures. Constant currency financial information is primarily used by management to assist in making financial, strategic and operating decisions and is calculated by translating data of the current and comparative periods using a budget foreign exchange rate that is set once a year as part of the Company's internal annual forecast process.

EBITDA is profit/(loss) before tax for the period before net financing costs, depreciation and amortization. As Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted to exclude (when they occur) exited markets, trading day impacts and chart of account alignments and remove the impact of share based payment charges, exceptional items, charges relating to the Founders Preferred Shares Annual Dividend Amount, charges relating to the redemption of warrants and other similar items. Pro Forma As Adjusted EBITDA is As Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to add the results of the Iglo Group and Findus Group to the reported results of Nomad Foods for periods when the Iglo Group and the Findus Group, respectively, were not owned by Nomad Foods.

As Adjusted, Pro Forma As Adjusted, like-for-like and constant currency financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of Nomad Foods included in this press release as well as the historical financial statements of the Iglo Group and the Findus Group previously filed with the SEC.

The As Adjusted financial information, Pro Forma adjustments, like-for-like and constant currency financial information presented herein are based upon certain assumptions that Nomad Foods believes to be reasonable. As Adjusted, Pro Forma As Adjusted, like-for-like and constant currency financial information is presented for informational purposes only and is not necessarily indicative of the combined financial position or results of operations that would have been realized had the acquisition of the Iglo Group or the Findus Group occurred on an earlier date, nor is it meant to be indicative of any anticipated combined financial position or future results of operations that the combined group will experience.  Consequently, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these results and information as they may not be representative of our actual or future results as a consolidated company.

Nomad Foods also utilizes certain additional key performance indicators described below including EBITDA, As Adjusted EBITDA, As Adjusted EBITDA margin, As Adjusted operating profit, As Adjusted profit/(loss) before tax, As Adjusted profit/(loss) for the period, As Adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share, revenue adjusted for certain items, Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information and As Adjusted operating cash flow before tax.  Nomad Foods believe its non-IFRS financial measures provide an important additional measure with which to monitor and evaluate the Company's ongoing financial results, as well as to reflect its acquisitions. Nomad Foods' calculation of these financial measures may be different from the calculations used by other companies and comparability may therefore be limited.  You should not consider the Company's non-IFRS financial measures an alternative or substitute for the Company's reported results.
