Omega Protein Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

12:23 EDT 2 Aug 2017 | PR Newswire

HOUSTON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Omega Protein Corporation (NYSE:OME), a nutritional product company and a leading integrated provider of specialty oils and specialty protein products, today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Revenues:  $93.9 million, compared to $112.7 million in the same period a year ago
  • Gross profit margin:  24.0%, compared to 29.6% in the same period a year ago
  • Net income: $7.4 million, or $7.6 million on an adjusted basis, compared to $5.7 million, or $14.1 million on an adjusted basis, in the same period a year ago
  • Earnings per diluted share: $0.32, or $0.34 on an adjusted basis, compared to $0.25, or $0.62 on an adjusted basis, in the same period a year ago
  • Adjusted EBITDA:  $18.5 million, compared to $28.6 million in the same period a year ago

"Results for our human nutrition segment continued to improve in the second quarter, although softer pricing and a slower than average start to the fishing season impacted animal nutrition segment results," commented Bret Scholtes, Omega Protein's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As of June 30 we were less than halfway through our fishing season, and given recent improvements in weather we are looking forward to the balance of the season.  In addition, while global quotas have pressured fish meal and fish oil prices, we believe these near-term volatilities are transitory in nature, and the macro-economic and industry trends that continue to drive positive demand for our products give us confidence in our long-term opportunities."

Mr. Scholtes concluded, "Our management team and board of directors remain focused on strategically aligning our human nutrition segment to best generate financial results and create value for shareholders. We continue to make progress on our previously announced strategic review of the human nutrition business segment and will provide you with further updates as appropriate on this ongoing effort."

Second Quarter 2017 Results

The Company's revenues decreased 17% from $112.7 million in the same period last year to $93.9 million, due to a decrease of $24.5 million in animal nutrition revenues, partially offset by a $5.7 million increase in human nutrition revenues. The decrease in animal nutrition revenues was primarily due to decreased sales volumes of 18% and 30% for the Company's fish oil and fish meal, respectively, and decreased sales prices of 12% and 1% for the Company's fish oil and fish meal, respectively. The decreases in fish oil and fish meal sales volumes were primarily due to the timing of contracts, a lower level of beginning inventory and a decreased level of production as a result of lower fish catch compared to the prior year period. The decrease in fish oil sales prices was primarily due to prevailing market conditions, including global supply and demand, at the time sales contracts were entered into. The increase in human nutrition revenues was primarily a result of increased specialty oil sales, most notably coconut oil.  The composition of revenues by nutritional product line for the second quarter of 2017 was 32% fish meal, 29% fish oil and 39% human nutrition. 

Second quarter of 2017 revenues increased 28% from $73.6 million in the first quarter of 2017 to $93.9 million. This increase was due to $17.2 million and $3.1 million increases in animal nutrition and human nutrition revenues, respectively. The increase in animal nutrition revenues was due to seasonally increased sales volumes of 415% for fish oil, partially offset by a predominately product mix-driven 41% decrease in fish oil sales prices and a 4% decrease in fish meal prices. The increase in human nutrition revenues was primarily a result of increased specialty oil and protein product sales. 

The Company reported gross profit of $22.5 million, or 24.0% as a percentage of revenues, for the second quarter of 2017, versus $33.4 million, or 29.6% as a percentage of revenues, in the second quarter of 2016. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was due to a decrease in the animal nutrition segment, partially offset by an increase in the human nutrition segment. Animal nutrition gross profit as a percentage of revenues decreased from 37.4% to 26.6%, due primarily to a decrease in sales prices and an increase in the cost per unit of sales as a result of lower anticipated fish catch and production volumes for the 2017 fishing season. Human nutrition gross profit as a percentage of revenues increased from 9.2% to 19.8% primarily due to increased gross profit as a percentage of revenues for specialty oils.    

Compared to the first quarter of 2017, the second quarter of 2017 gross profit increased from $20.2 million to $22.5 million, and as a percentage of revenues, second quarter 2017 gross profit decreased from 27.4% to 24.0%. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was due to a decrease in the animal nutrition segment, partially offset by an increase in the human nutrition segment.  Animal nutrition gross profit as a percentage of revenues decreased from 35.4% to 26.6%, due to a decrease in sales prices and an increase in the cost per unit of sales. Human nutrition gross profit as a percentage of revenues increased from 18.0% to 19.8% primarily as a result of increased gross profit as a percentage of revenues for protein products.    

Selling, general and administrative expense, including research and development expense ("SG&A"), for the second quarter of 2017 decreased to $10.3 million compared to $11.8 million in the second quarter of 2016, primarily due to lower professional and labor expenses. SG&A decreased from $10.8 million in the first quarter of 2017, due primarily to lower professional expenses.

The Company recorded a $0.4 million loss on foreign currency for the second quarter of 2017 compared to a $0.1 million gain on foreign currency in the second quarter of 2016 and a loss on foreign currency of $0.9 million for the first quarter of 2017 related to Bioriginal Food & Science.

The Company recorded goodwill impairment expenses in the second quarter of 2016 of $11.6 million related to the Wisconsin Specialty Protein business in the human nutrition segment.  There were no impairment charges recognized in the second or first quarters of 2017.

Net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $7.4 million ($0.32 per diluted share) compared to $5.7 million ($0.25 per diluted share) in the same period last year and $6.1 million ($0.27 per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2017. Excluding adjustments for certain items, adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2017 was $7.6 million ($0.34 per diluted share), compared to $14.1 million ($0.62 per diluted share) in the same period last year and $6.0 million ($0.26 per diluted share) for the first quarter of 2017. 

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $18.5 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to $28.6 million for the same period last year and $15.2 million for the first quarter of 2017.

Six Month 2017 Results

Revenues in the first six months of 2017 decreased 15% to $167.5 million compared to $197.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease in revenues was due to a $34.7 million decrease in animal nutrition revenues partially offset by a $4.7 million increase in human nutrition revenues. The decrease in animal nutrition revenues was primarily due to decreased sales volumes of 28% and 21% for the Company's fish oil and fish meal, respectively, and decreased sales prices of 6% for the Company's fish oil; fish meal prices did not change significantly. The decrease in fish oil and fish meal sales volumes was primarily due to the timing of contracts and a lower level of beginning inventory and production as a result of lower fish catch compared to the prior year period. The decrease in fish oil sales prices was primarily due to prevailing market conditions such as global supply and demand at the time sales contracts were entered into.  The increase in human nutrition revenues was primarily due to an increase in sales of specialty oils.

The Company recorded gross profit of $42.7 million, or 25.5% as a percentage of revenues, for the first six months of 2017, versus gross profit of $58.2 million, or 29.5% as a percentage of revenues, for the first six months of 2016. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was due to a decrease in the animal nutrition segment from 38.7% to 30.2%, partially offset by an increase in the human nutrition segment from 11.0% to 19.0%.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $13.4 million ($0.59 per diluted share) compared to $14.0 million ($0.62 per diluted share) for the same period last year. Excluding adjustments for certain items, adjusted net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 would have been $13.6 million ($0.60 per diluted share) compared to $23.2 million ($1.03 per diluted share).

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $33.6 million for six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $49.1 million for the same period last year.

(1) See segment disclosures for allocation among segments.

(2) Relates to human nutrition segment.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest expense, income tax, depreciation and amortization, impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets, loss related to plant closures, acquisition post-closing consideration and loss (gain) on disposal of assets. The Company has reported Adjusted EBITDA because it believes Adjusted EBITDA is a measure commonly reported and widely used by investors as an indicator of a Company's performance of its ongoing operations. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA assists such investors in comparing a company's performance of its ongoing operations on a consistent basis. Adjusted EBITDA is not a calculation based on GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income in measuring our performance or used as an exclusive measure of cash flow because it does not consider the impact of working capital changes, capital expenditures, debt principal reductions and other sources and uses of cash which are disclosed in our consolidated statements of cash flows. Investors should carefully consider the specific items included in our computation of Adjusted EBITDA. While Adjusted EBITDA has been disclosed herein to permit a more complete comparative analysis of our operating performance relative to other companies, investors should be cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA as reported by us may not be comparable in all instances to Adjusted EBITDA as reported by us or by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA amounts may not be fully available for management's discretionary use, due to certain requirements to conserve funds for capital expenditures, debt service and other commitments, and therefore management relies primarily on our GAAP results. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent net income as defined by GAAP and such information should not be considered as an alternative to net income, cash flow from operations or any other measure of performance prescribed by GAAP in the United States.
