Landec Corporation Reports Third Quarter and First Nine Months Fiscal 2021 Results

  • Lifecore Biomedical Generates Year-to-date Revenue Growth of 20%, Net Income Growth of 39%, and Adjusted EBITDA Growth of 34%
  • Reiterates Fiscal 2021 Lifecore Biomedical Guidance
  • Revises Curation Foods Fiscal 2021 Guidance to Reflect COVID-19 Headwinds

/EIN News/ -- SANTA MARIA, Calif., April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Landec Corporation (Nasdaq: LNDC), a diversified health and wellness company with two operating businesses, Lifecore Biomedical, Inc. and Curation Foods, Inc., reported results for the fiscal 2021 third quarter and year-to-date period ended February 28, 2021. Looking forward, Landec’s strategy to create shareholder value is to deliver against its long-term targets, strengthen its balance sheet, drive top-line growth at Lifecore, and selectively invest in innovation and growth while implementing strategic priorities to improve operating margins at Curation Foods.

CEO COMMENTS:
Dr. Albert Bolles, Landec’s President and CEO stated, “Lifecore produced another strong quarterly performance which helped propel year-to-date segment revenue growth of 20% and adjusted EBITDA growth of 34% for the fiscal nine-month period ended February 28, 2021. We believe that the business is extremely well positioned to benefit from several strong industry trends which include the rise in drug development, a need for capable partners to outsource complex development and manufacturing projects, and growing demand for vial and syringe capacity. Taken together, we believe that Lifecore is prepared to utilize its highly specialized CDMO capabilities and is uniquely positioned to provide solutions to complex manufacturing needs and benefit from an expected acceleration in new drug application approvals in the coming years. Lifecore remains on-track to meet its guidance for the year and we continue to support the team’s efforts to invest for sustainable long-term double-digit growth.”

Dr. Bolles continued, “At Curation Foods, our turnaround efforts continue to progress, but we were met with several new challenges in our third quarter that temporarily stalled our momentum. Although we realized year-over-year improvement in the segment’s gross margin, this performance came in below our plan due to COVID-19-related variables that weighed on results. Our team is working diligently and creatively to navigate this fluid environment and we remain confident that the steady-state gross margin targets of 11% - 14% that we laid out for the end of fiscal 2021 are still within reach.  We still have much to accomplish and recognize that Lifecore and by extension Landec is an undervalued asset, and we are working with focus to transform Curation Foods. We have made many accomplishments as seen by our year-to-date performance and will continue to utilize the framework within Project SWIFT to improve shareholder value.”

Revenues decreased $15.1 million, or 9.9%, year-over-year, which was primarily a result of a 13.3% decrease in Curation Foods’ segment revenues, as described below, which was partially offset by a 7.0% increase in the Lifecore segment revenues.

Lifecore is the Company’s CDMO business focused on product development and manufacturing of sterile injectable products. Lifecore continues to expand its presence in the robust CDMO marketplace by finding additional opportunities to partner with and provide value added services to biopharmaceutical and medical device companies. Lifecore continues to drive growth and profitability with a focus on building its business development pipeline, maximizing capacity and advancing product commercialization for innovative new therapies that improve patients’ lives.

In the third quarter, Lifecore realized total revenues of $27.2 million, or a 7.0% increase versus the prior year period driven by a 33.0% increase in its CDMO business, which was partially offset by a 24.9% decrease in its fermentation business. The year-over-year quarterly variance in the fermentation business was due to timing of shipments.

Lifecore drove a $0.7 million increase in gross profit year-over-year and gross margin was relatively consistent at 42.5% compared to 42.8% in the prior year period.

Curation Foods is the Company’s natural food business. Curation Foods is focused on providing access to innovative and nutritious 100% clean ingredient plant-based food. Through the execution of Project SWIFT – its value creation program that aims to strengthen the Curation Foods business by simplifying the business, improving operating cost structure, and enhancing profitability with a focus on higher margin products – the Company believes that it is on a clear path towards improving the overall financial performance of Landec, enhancing its ability to drive long-term shareholder value.

Curation Foods realized total revenues of $110.6 million for the fiscal third quarter. The total segment revenues decreased 13% versus the prior year period, primarily driven by the planned reduction in Curation Foods’ legacy vegetable and tray business in connection with Project SWIFT and COVID-19 pandemic headwinds. The pandemic has delayed customer store resets and the penetration of new product innovations, and continues to pressure the foodservice channel. As a result, the fresh packaged salads and vegetables business revenue decreased $16.1 million, or 15%, to $94.7 million. Partially offsetting the revenue decrease in the fresh packaged salads and vegetables business segment was growth in the avocado products business, which increased 6%, to $15.4 million due to expansion of its Avocado Squeeze product and growth in the Cabo Fresh brand. Revenue in Technology decreased 79% due to an unfavorable comparison in the prior year period where the Company recognized a one-time licensing benefit of $1.5 million.

Curation Foods generated gross profit of $8.1 million, which decreased 11.3% year-over-year largely due to lower revenues. Gross margin of 7.4% compares to 7.2% in the prior year period and was below the Company’s expectations due to increased COVID-19 related challenges associated with labor inefficiency, distribution cost inflation, costs associated with sales cancellations, and higher variable costs such as minimum wage increases. The Company remains committed to improving segment gross margin and is focused on this metric as a key performance indicator. Management believes that it can achieve at the low end of its previously stated goal of reaching a Curation Foods segment steady-state gross margin rate in the range of 11-14% in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2021.

CASH FLOW & BALANCE SHEET
Cash provided by operations was $10.6 million for the nine month period ended February 28, 2021 compared to cash used by operations of $4.3 million in the prior year period, representing a $14.9 million improvement year-over-year. Cash from investing activities improved $20.8 million versus prior year, driven by a capital expenditure decrease of $10.7 million and fixed asset sales proceeds of $12.9 million. Capital expenditures were $11.4 million for the nine month period ended February 28, 2021 compared to $22.1 million in the prior year period.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $2.2 million as of February 28, 2021. Total debt at fiscal third quarter end was $186.1 million, consisting of its line of credit and long-term debt.

FISCAL 2021 OUTLOOK:
The Company is reiterating its full year fiscal 2021 guidance for Lifecore Biomedical and revising its full year fiscal 2021 guidance for Curation Foods and Consolidated Landec to reflect the challenges experienced in fiscal third quarter and expectations for lower than expected sales in fiscal fourth quarter. Guidance continues to exclude restructuring and other nonrecurring charges as well as any tax implications.  The Company’s updated fiscal 2021 outlook is detailed below with growth figures that are compared to fiscal 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Information and Reconciliations

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted diluted net income (loss) per share are non-GAAP financial measures. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), and depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before the fair market value change of the Company’s investments in Windset, certain restructuring and other non-recurring charges and before impairment of goodwill and intangibles charges. We define adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted net income (loss) per share as net income (loss) and diluted net income (loss) per share, respectively, before certain restructuring and other non-recurring charges and before the fair market value change of the Company’s investment in Windset, net of tax, and before impairment of goodwill and intangibles charges, net of tax. The table below presents the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and other supplemental information. See “Non-GAAP Financial Information” above for further information regarding the Company’s use of non-GAAP financial measures.

(1) During fiscal year 2020, the Company announced a restructuring plan to drive enhanced profitability, focus the business on its strategic assets, and redesign the organization to be the appropriate size to compete and thrive. This included a reduction-in-force, a reduction in leased office spaces, and the sale of non-strategic assets. Related to these continued activities, in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, the Company incurred (1) $12.8 million ($2.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021) of restructuring charges, primarily related to the impairment and sale of the Company’s Hanover, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility and related severance charges, the write-off of non-strategic assets, and other restructuring related consulting and legal costs; partially offset by the gain on sale of the Company’s Ontario, California facility and (2) $6.9 million ($0.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021) of certain non-recurring charges, primarily related to potential environmental and compliance matters at Curation Foods’ Avocado Products factory in Silao, Mexico, and other restructuring related legal and consulting costs.
