11:40 EDTPFMcCormick hits 52-week high after Q1 results top expectations
Shares of spices, seasonings and condiments maker McCormick & Company (MKC) are advancing after the company's first quarter results surpassed analysts' consensus estimates. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, McCormick reported Q1 adjusted earnings per share of 70c excluding a 15c impact of special charges on revenue of $1.01B, topping analysts' consensus estimates of 64c and $985.12M, respectively. McCormick's Q1 sales rose 2% from the year-ago period and in constant currency, the increase was 6%. Consumer business sales rose 5% in constant currency in Q1 due to increased volume and product mix driven by product innovation, brand marketing support and expanded distribution. Industrial business sales grew 7% in constant currency, with higher volume and product mix, as well as pricing actions. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, the company forecast fiscal year 2015 adjusted EPS of EPS $3.44-$3.51, below its prior view of $3.51-$3.58 given in January and analysts' estimates for FY15 of $3.53. The company continues to expect 4%-6% sales growth in constant currency for FY15. Based on year-to-date results and prevailing exchange rates, currency is now expected to lower this sales growth range by 5 percentage points, which is more than the previous projection of 3 percentage points. In constant currency, adjusted operating income is expected to grow 6%-7% from adjusted operating income of $608M in 2014. McCormick also raised its anticipated special charges for the year to $30M from $20M due to a higher response rate to its voluntary retirement program and additional actions in EMEA. McCormick is also targeting cost reductions of at least $85M in FY15, which are expected to help offset higher material costs. The company sees its Comprehensive Continuous Improvement program delivering at least $65M in 2015, and sees savings from reorganization actions of $20M. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alan Wilson commented that Q1 operating income was unfavorably impacted by several factors including special charges, unfavorable currency rates and higher material costs. Wilson said the company anticipates that these headwinds will continue in 2015, but expect the benefit of pricing actions and cost reduction efforts to build in the upcoming quarters. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, McCormick rose $2.90 or 3.96% to $76.10 on more than twice its average daily trading volume. The stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $77.79 earlier in the session. Including today's advance, the shares have gained nearly 13% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the food space include TreeHouse Foods (THS), down 0.8%, B&G Foods (BGS), up 1.2%, and Pinnacle Foods (PF), up 0.1%.
