Updates Fiscal Year 2022 Outlook

MALMÖ, Sweden, Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oatly Group AB OTLY ("Oatly" or the "Company"), the world's original and largest oat drink company, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Toni Petersson, Oatly's CEO, commented, "We delivered strong second quarter financial results with sales growth of 22%, or 30% in constant currency, despite several headwinds including COVID-19 lockdowns in China. Profitability metrics improved compared to the first quarter of 2022 and we expect this trend to continue in the second half of the year. As we expand and scale our more localized production footprint while remaining disciplined in our capital allocation, we are confident in our ability to achieve much better production economics and operating efficiencies, reduce our environmental impact, and achieve profitability. Global consumer demand remains as strong as ever and we have a proven multi-channel strategy that we believe positions us well for long-term growth and profitability."

Second Quarter 2022 Results

Revenue increased $31.8 million, or 21.8%, to $178.0 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to $146.2 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. Excluding a foreign currency exchange headwind of $11.7 million, revenue for the second quarter was $189.6 million, or an increase of 29.7%, using constant exchange rates. The revenue increase was primarily driven by additional supply from the Company's facilities to meet the global demand for its products. Sold volume for the second quarter of 2022 amounted to 121 million liters compared to 95 million liters last year, an increase of 27.4%. Produced finished goods volume for the second quarter of 2022 amounted to 124 million liters compared to 106 million liters for the same period last year, an increase of 17.0%.

The Company continued to experience broad-based revenue growth across retail and foodservice channels in the second quarter of 2022. The foodservice channel contribution continued to increase in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year period despite COVID-19 restrictions, and the Company also experienced strong growth in e-commerce sales in China. In the second quarter of 2022 and 2021, the foodservice channel accounted for 35.0% and 33.2% of the Company's revenue, respectively, the retail channel accounted for 56.8% and 61.5% of the Company's revenue, respectively, and the other channel, comprised primarily of e-commerce sales, accounted for 8.2% and 5.3% of the Company's revenue, respectively.

Gross profit was $28.1 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $38.6 million for the second quarter of 2021 and $15.8 million for the first quarter of 2022. The gross profit margin sequential increase of 630 basis points in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2022 was primarily due to:

  • Positive gross margin impact from higher share of self-manufacturing including localization of production estimated of 320 basis points,
  • EMEA co-packer consolidation charge recorded in the first quarter with no such charge in the second quarter of 270 basis points,
  • The implementation of the EMEA price increases of 190 basis points,
  • Other items, net, of approximately 30 basis points, offset by,
  • Short-term underutilization of new facilities and expansion of our logistic network supporting our growth of approximately 180 basis points.

The Company expects that the continued ramp-up of its production facilities in the second half of 2022 and the pricing actions in the U.S. will further drive gross profit margin expansion.

Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2022 increased $1.7 million to $5.7 million compared to $4.0 million in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2022 increased $14.0 million to $97.1 million compared to $83.1 million in the prior year period. The increase in expenses was primarily due to an increase of $5.1 million in employee related expenses, which include $4.1 million in non-cash costs for the Company's Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") due to increased headcount as the Company continues to invest in its growth and comply with public company obligations. The Company also incurred $6.2 million in increased costs relating to branding and marketing expenses, offset by $4.2 million from the depositary relating to the administration of the ADR program, $1.9 million in lower costs relating to external consultants, contractors, other professional fees and favorable impact from foreign exchange of $7.8 million. The $1.9 million in decreased costs relating to external consultants, contractors and other professional fees was primarily a result of the one-off consultancy expenses incurred in relation to our initial public offering during the second quarter of 2021. Excluding the one-off impact from the initial public offering related costs, there was an increase of $5.2 million in costs relating external consultants, contractors and other professional fees for the second quarter of 2022. Customer distribution costs increased by $5.0 million mainly due to higher revenue and freight customer rates.

Other operating income for the second quarter of 2022 of $0.2 million included primarily a gain on disposal of property, plant and equipment, offset by a net foreign exchange loss, compared to other operating income in the second quarter of 2021 of $0.4 million comprised primarily of a net foreign exchange gain.

Net loss attributable to shareholders of the parent was $72.0 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to net loss of $59.1 million in the prior year period.

EBITDA loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $62.6 million, compared to an EBITDA loss of $43.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in EBITDA loss was primarily a result of lower gross profit, higher employee related expenses including share-based compensation costs, higher branding and customer distribution expenses, public company costs and other operating expenses as the Company scales its global operations to support growth across three continents, offset by positive impact from foreign exchange rates.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $53.4 million, compared to a loss of $31.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA loss was primarily related to lower gross profit, higher branding and customer distribution expenses, public company costs and other operating expenses as the Company scales its global operations to support growth across three continents, offset by positive impact from foreign exchange rates.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA (Loss), and revenue at constant currency are non-IFRS financial measures defined under "Non-IFRS financial measures." Please see "Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Results" at the end of this press release.

_____________________________

*   Corporate consists of general overhead costs not allocated to the segments.
**  Eliminations refer primarily to intersegment revenue for sales of products from EMEA to Asia.

EMEA

EMEA revenue increased $4.0 million, or 5.0%, to $82.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $78.5 million in the prior year period. Excluding a significant foreign currency exchange headwind of $10.6 million, EMEA revenue for the second quarter was $93.1 million, or an increase of 18.6%, using constant exchange rates. This increase was driven by growth in foodservice and retail channels across primarily oat drink product offerings. Approximately 82% of EMEA revenue was from the retail channel for the second quarter of 2022.

EMEA EBITDA decreased $2.1 million to $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $6.0 million in the prior year period. This decrease in EMEA EBITDA was primarily due to lower gross profit margin in addition to higher operating expenses. Adjusted EMEA EBITDA, which excluded recurring share-based compensation expense of $1.4 million, was $5.3 million compared to $6.7 million in the prior year period.

Americas

Americas revenue increased $10.4 million, or 25.2%, to $51.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $41.3 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher production output compared to the prior year period with growth in existing foodservice and retail channels across mainly oat drink product offerings. Approximately 55% of Americas revenue was from the retail channel in the second quarter of 2022.

Americas EBITDA loss increased $10.9 million to a loss of $20.7 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to a loss of $9.8 million in the prior year period. The decrease in Americas EBITDA resulted from a number of factors offsetting the revenue growth, such as channel and customer mix, continued scaling of production capacity at the Company's Ogden, Utah facility resulting in higher cost of production during the ramp-up phase and higher operating expenses as the Company scales its operations for anticipated future growth. Adjusted Americas EBITDA, which excluded recurring share-based compensation expense of $1.1 million, was a loss of $19.6 million compared to a loss of $9.2 million in the prior year period.

Asia

Asia revenue increased $17.4 million, or 66.3%, to $43.7 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $26.3 million in the prior year period. Excluding a foreign currency exchange headwind of $1.0 million, Asia revenue for the second quarter was $44.7 million, or an increase of 70.1%, using constant exchange rates. This increase was impacted by the implementation of various degrees of lock-downs due to COVID-19 variants in China during the first quarter of 2022 which continued throughout most of the second quarter. Approximately 58% of Asia revenue was from the foodservice channel for the second quarter of 2022, with a significant contribution coming from the e-commerce channel.

Asia EBITDA loss increased $8.2 million to a loss of $12.6 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to a loss of $4.4 million in the prior year period. The decrease in Asia EBITDA was primarily due to higher operating expenses as the Company scales its operations for future growth and lower gross profit margin driven by primarily higher cost of production during the ramp-up phase of our new facilities. Adjusted Asia EBITDA, which excluded recurring share-based compensation expense of $1.8 million, was a loss of $10.8 million compared to a loss of $3.6 million in the prior year period.

Corporate Expense

Oatly's corporate expense, which consists of general overhead costs not allocated to the segments, in the second quarter of 2022 was $33.1 million, an increase of $2.1 million compared to the prior year period. The second quarter of 2021 included $7.1 million in one-off consultancy expenses related to our initial public offering. This increase was driven by continued investments in the organization to support the Company's growth and transition to being a public company as well as a recurring share-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA, which excluded recurring share-based compensation expense of $4.8 million, was a loss of $28.3 million compared to a loss of $25.8 million in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $182.2 million, $92.9 million in short term investments and total outstanding debt to credit institutions of $4.5 million. Net cash used in operating activities was $127.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $72.5 million during the prior year period which was primarily driven by a loss from operations as the Company continues to invest and scale its business to support its growth. Capital expenditures were $111.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $134.4 million in the prior year period. Net cash used in financing activities was $6.9 million reflecting the repayment of lease liabilities and repayment of liabilities to credit institutions.

Outlook
Regarding the Company's outlook, Petersson stated, "We are updating our outlook for the year based on the challenging operating environment today with the war in Ukraine, COVID-19, and inflationary and supply chain pressures. In EMEA, oat milk clearly continues to take market share and our leading brand position and velocity remain strong. However, we believe the macroeconomic uncertainty has impacted the speed at which we are able to expand our distribution footprint in foodservice and new markets, and the pace at which we have been able to convert new consumers from dairy to plant-based milk is taking longer than we had hoped for and we expect this to continue for the remainder of the year. In Asia, COVID-19 related restrictions remain in place, and the new COVID sub-variant of the virus continues to break out in many cities. The recovery in the foodservice channel has been slower than we expected so far because of lasting concerns over lockdowns. In turn, we are more prudent with both our revenue outlook and our capital allocation for the remainder of the year to adapt to this new environment, while being highly focused on achieving profitable growth. The fundamentals of the business remain unchanged, and we believe we have significant opportunities for growth to the extent that certain of these headwinds subside."

The Company's outlook assumes reasonable containment of COVID-19 related infection rates globally, including no further major lockdowns in Asia for the remainder of the year, and does not reflect any additional deterioration in the European macro environment, or any significant changes in the geopolitical impact of the current war in Ukraine. Based on the Company's assessment of the current operating environment, including inflation, rising interest rates, and the impact on consumer behavior, as well as updated foreign currency exchange rates as of June 30, 2022, the Company now expects the following for the full year ending December 31, 2022:

  • Revenue of $800 million to $830 million, an increase of 24% to 29% compared to full year 2021 with growth across regions. The updated foreign currency exchange rates account for $35 million of the revision to the previously provided range. On a constant currency basis, the Company expects revenue of $835 million to $865 million, an increase of 30% to 34% compared to full year 2021.
  • Capital expenditures between $220 million and $240 million. The Company is phasing its production footprint expansion due to the current operating environment and expects this to result in significant savings in 2022 capital expenditures.
  • Run-rate production capacity to be approximately 900 million liters of finished goods at the end of the year.

Long-term, the Company expects:

  • To generate gross profit margin of greater than 40% and an Adjusted EBITDA margin approaching 20% as it benefits from a larger self-manufacturing footprint globally, greater economies of scale and continued strong revenue growth.

The Company cannot provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA margin guidance to the corresponding IFRS metric without unreasonable efforts, as we are unable to provide reconciling information. The items necessary to reconcile these items are not within Oatly's control, may vary greatly between periods and could significantly impact future financial results.

Conference Call, Webcast and Supplemental Presentation Details

Oatly will host a conference call and webcast at 8:30 a.m. ET today to discuss these results. The conference call, simultaneous, live webcast and supplemental presentation can be accessed on Oatly's Investors website at https://investors.oatly.com under "Events." The webcast will be archived for 30 days.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and constant currency revenue are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with IFRS. We define Adjusted EBITDA as loss for the period attributable to shareholders of the parent adjusted to exclude, when applicable, income tax expense, finance expenses, finance income, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense and non-recurring expenses related to the IPO.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to loss for the period or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA rather than loss for the period attributable to shareholders of the parent, which is the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future increasing our cash requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash required to service our debt, which reduces cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that reduce cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect share-based compensation expenses and, therefore, does not include all of our compensation costs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect non-recurring expenses related to the IPO that reduce cash available to us; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with IFRS. Below we have provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to loss attributable to shareholders of the parent, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, for the period presented.

This press release also includes reference to constant currency revenue. The Company presents this measure because we use constant currency information to provide a framework in assessing how our business and geographic segments performed excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and believe this information is useful to investors to facilitate comparisons and better identify trends in our business. The constant currency measure is calculated by translating the current year reported revenue amounts into comparable amounts using the prior year reporting period's average foreign exchange rates which have been provided by a third party. Below we have provided a reconciliation of revenue as reported to revenue on a constant currency basis for the periods presented.
