  • Revenue was down €32.6 million or 6.9%, year-on-year. Adjusting for currency impacts and the exit from Russia, the like-for-like decline was 3.3% - an improvement on the rate of decline in the first half of 2016. As has been the case in the past few quarters, the decline in sales was driven by the Group's three largest markets, namely the UK, Italy and to a lesser extent Germany, although each of these markets again showed reduced rates of decline year-on-year compared to the prior quarter. The Group also saw a drop in sales in France as retailers destocked Iglo product ahead of ordering the new Findus branded SKUs.
  • Gross Profit declined €11.7 million driven primarily by lower sales volumes.
  • Gross Margin declined by 0.5%, driven by the impact of the lower harvest levels.
  • A&P investment was €1.7m lower as the Group held back investment over July and August, increasing in September as we upweight spend for the remainder of the year.
  • § Indirect costs were €14.3 million lower year-on-year due to the releases of the year to date accruals related to the Group's annual bonus scheme, synergy realisation and the benefits from the Group's lean reorganisation programme.
  • Resulting Q3 2016 As Adjusted EBITDA was €85.1 million, representing 19.4% of revenues.
  • Adjusted earnings per Share increased by 1 Euro cent year-on-year due to the increase in Adjusted profit for the period.

Financial information highlights for the nine months ended September 30, 2016

Nomad Foods is presenting As Adjusted financial information for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. As Adjusted financial information for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 reflects the reported results of Nomad Foods for such period, adjusted for share based payment charges, exceptional items and non-cash foreign currency translation charges/gains.

For comparative purposes, Nomad Foods is also presenting Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Pro Forma As Adjusted financial information for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 includes the reported results of Nomad Foods for such period, which includes the results of the Iglo Group from June 1, 2015 and (i) the reported results of the Iglo Group for the five months ended May 31, 2015; and (ii) the consolidated carve out results of the Findus Group for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The Pro Forma As Adjusted results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 have been normalised for the differential in trading days (excluding the additional day for the leap year in 2016) between year-on-year periods, transaction-related items, exceptional items, foreign currency translation charges/gains and taxation.

  • Revenue was down €88.4 million or 5.8%, year-on-year. Adjusting for currency impacts, the exit from Russia, an additional trading day in Q1 2016 due to the leap year and the business acquisition of La Cocinera in Spain, the like-for-like decline was 4.5%. As has been the case in the past few quarters, the decline in sales was driven by the Group's three largest markets, namely the UK, Italy and Germany, although each of these markets showed a reduced rate of decline year-on-year compared to the second half of 2015.
  • Gross Profit declined €31.7 million driven primarily by lower sales volumes.
  • Gross Margin declined by 0.3%, driven by an adverse mix, the impact of the lower harvest volumes and the dilutive effect of the La Cocinera acquisition, partly offset by pricing year-on-year, improved trade terms management and a reduction in input costs.
  • A&P investment was €16.8m lower as the Group re-phased advertising spend to align with the anticipated launch of the new advertising in the final four months of the year.
  • Indirect costs were €18.0 million lower year-on-year due to synergy realisation, the benefits from the Group's lean reorganisation programme and the year on year impact of accruing for the Group's bonus scheme last year.
  • Resulting YTD 2016 As Adjusted EBITDA was €262.8m, representing 18.2% of revenues.
  • As Adjusted Earnings per Share increased by 1 Euro Cent in the period driven by the increase in Adjusted Profit.

Management Comments

Stéfan Descheemaeker, Nomad Foods' Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We have made further progress on implementing our strategy and are encouraged by the early results of our "must win battles". There is still much to do and we continue to remain focussed on our key objectives for the year and beyond: firstly, to stabilise the top-line and secondly to deliver the predicted synergies."

Noam Gottesman, Nomad Foods' Co-Chairman and Founder, commented, "We are pleased with our progress on all fronts.  Results from our "Must Win Battles" strategy are promising, with positive feedback from both retailers and our consumers.  Meanwhile, we also remain focused on our broader strategy, as we seek to build long-term value for all of our stakeholders."

Appointment of New Director

Nomad Foods is also announcing today that, effective November 30, 2016, the Board of Directors will be increased from 10 to 11 directors and that Simon White will join the Board to fill the additional director position created by the expansion. Until 2014, Mr. White was Chief Operating Officer of Man Group PLC where he was a member of the Executive Committee. Prior to GLG's merger with Man in 2010, Mr. White served as Chief Operating Officer of GLG Partners Inc. from its inception and was also Chief Financial Officer until mid-2008. From 1993 to 2000 he worked at Lehman Brothers in a number of different roles. Since 2014, Mr. White has been involved in leadership roles in a range of early stage businesses with a special focus on FinTech.

Conference Call 

A conference call with members of the executive management team will be held to discuss the results with additional comments and details.

As Adjusted and Pro Forma As Adjusted 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/gain. 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.  As Adjusted and Pro Forma As Adjusted 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 and Pro Forma adjustments presented herein are based upon certain assumptions that Nomad Foods believes to be reasonable.  As Adjusted and Pro Forma As Adjusted 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.

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.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

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 these 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.

EBITDA is Profit/loss before tax for the period before net financing costs, depreciation and amortization. As Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted to 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.

We believe our Non-IFRS financial measures are useful indicators and can assist securities analysts, investors and other parties to perform their own evaluations.  Accordingly, the information has been disclosed to permit a more complete and comprehensive analysis of our operating performance.  EBITDA and other non-IFRS financial measures are used by different companies for different purposes and are often calculated in ways that reflect the individual needs and circumstances of these companies.  You should exercise caution in comparing the Non-IFRS financial measures with similarly titled measures of other companies.
