PORTLAND, Maine, Aug. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covetrus (Nasdaq: CVET), a global leader in animal-health technology and services, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2020, which ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Results

Net sales for the second quarter of 2020 were $1.03 billion, an increase of 2% compared to the second quarter of 2019. Foreign exchange was a 2% headwind to net sales growth during the period. Non-GAAP organic net sales increased 5% year-over-year, driven by strong net sales growth in the Company's prescription management business as well as positive supply chain net sales growth in North America and APAC & Emerging Markets, supported by a recovery in end-market demand in May and June.

Net income attributable to Covetrus in the second quarter of 2020 was $54 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, which compared to Net loss of $10 million, or a loss of $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019. The primary driver of the year-over-year increase was a $70 million after-tax gain on the sale of scil animal care.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $63 million for the second quarter of 2020 versus $53 million in the prior year. Changes in foreign exchange negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA by $1 million year-over-year. The primary driver of the 19% year-over-year increase was positive growth and contribution from the Company's prescription management business and cost containment measures in response to COVID-19, which offset the COVID-19 net sales headwinds and the lost adjusted EBITDA contribution from scil animal care, which was divested on April 1, 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $30 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $24 million in the prior year period, driven by the same factors impacting non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA.

First Half 2020 Results

Net sales for the first half of 2020 were $2.09 billion, an increase of 7% compared to the first half of 2019. Foreign exchange was a 2% headwind to sales growth during the period. Non-GAAP pro forma organic net sales increased 7% year-over-year, driven by strong net sales growth in the Company's prescription management business and positive supply chain net sales across all of the Company's geographic segments, reflective of the growth and resiliency of the Company's end-market and strong sales execution.

Net income attributable to Covetrus in the first half of 2020 was $20 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, which compared to net loss of $23 million, or a loss of $0.22 per diluted share, in the first half of 2019. The primary driver of the year-over-year increase was a $70 million after-tax gain on the sale of scil animal care.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $111 million for the first half of 2020 versus $103 million in the prior year period on a pro forma basis. Changes in foreign exchange negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA by $2 million year-over-year. The primary driver of the 8% year-over-year increase was accelerated growth and contribution from the Company's prescription management business and cost containment measures in response to COVID-19 uncertainties, which offset the year-over-year impact from increased corporate overhead tied to establishing an independent, global public company.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $50 million for the first half of 2020, compared to $42 million in the prior year on a pro forma basis, driven by the same factors impacting non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA.

Second Quarter 2020 Segment Financial Highlights

The Company’s operations are organized and reported by geography -- North America, Europe, and APAC & Emerging Markets.

North America

North America segment net sales for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $602 million increased 9% compared to the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP organic net sales increased 10% year-over-year. During the second quarter of 2020, supply chain non-GAAP organic net sales increased 2% year-over-year and prescription management net sales increased 66% year-over-year. COVID-19 had a negative impact on supply chain net sales during the month of April, with sales trends recovering during the months of May and June. COVID-19 had a positive impact on the Company's prescription management business as e-commerce for prescription pet medications spiked amidst the pandemic.

North America segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $55 million increased 28% compared to the same period of the prior year, reflecting the strong net sales growth and the significant improvement in profitability in the Company's prescription management business as well as a modest increase in the overall contribution from the rest of the Company's North American businesses during the second quarter as compared to prior year.

Europe

Europe segment net sales for second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $342 million decreased 8% compared to the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP pro forma organic net sales declined 2% compared to the same period of the prior year. The inventory stocking pull forward of net sales into the first quarter of 2020 as well as COVID-19-related headwinds during April and May drove the decline in net sales as compared to the prior year.

Europe segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $16 million decreased 16% compared to the same period of the prior year, as the lost contribution from the scil animal care business, which was divested on April 1, changes in foreign exchange, and the decline in net sales, including the impact from the inventory stocking dynamic discussed above, more than offset the benefit from cost containment actions implemented during the quarter to mitigate the COVID-19 impact.

APAC & Emerging Markets

APAC & Emerging Markets segment net sales for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $85 million decreased by 6% compared to the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP pro forma organic net sales increased 4% compared to the same period of the prior year, with strong sales execution more than offsetting the COVID-19 headwind.

APAC & Emerging Markets segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter, ended June 30, 2020, of $5 million increased 25% compared to the same period of the prior year, driven by strong operating leverage from the positive net sales growth delivered during the quarter, including the benefit from cost containment actions implemented during the quarter to mitigate the COVID-19 impact.

Financial Position and Liquidity

Covetrus generated $54 million of net cash from operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to $3 million during the prior year period. Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as cash flow from operating activities less purchases of property and equipment, was $30 million during the six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to negative $18 million in the prior year period. The year-over-year increase in free cash flow reflects improved operating earnings and strong working capital management in response to the uncertainty created by COVID-19.

At quarter-end, the Company had $414 million in cash and cash equivalents, $1.14 billion in term loan debt, and no borrowings outstanding on its $300 million revolving credit facility. The Company ended the quarter with more than $700 million in available liquidity and was in compliance with the covenants in its credit agreement as of June 30, 2020.

2020 Financial Guidance

Covetrus’ fiscal year 2020 financial guidance range is as follows, which assumes no significant additional supply chain disruption or economic impact related to COVID-19 in the second half of the year:

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial metric, of $200 million to $210 million

The Company has not reconciled its non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net income attributable to Covetrus because the reconciling items between such GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, including share-based compensation expense, separation program costs, strategic consulting costs and other special items tied to the formation of Covetrus, cannot be reasonably predicted due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty predicting the occurrence, the financial impact, and the periods in which the non-GAAP adjustments may be recognized and therefore is not available without unreasonable effort. The impact of these adjusting items could be significant to the Company’s GAAP results. For more information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this release, please see the section titled Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures for the reconciliations of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA

The Company provides adjusted EBITDA by segment as a supplemental measure to GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA by segment is not a pro forma metric and in 2019 reflects the operations of Vets First Choice only for the period from February 8, 2019 to June 30, 2019. Adjusted EBITDA by segment is among the primary metrics by which management evaluates the performance of the business. Adjusted EBITDA by segment has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact of certain expenses to our consolidated statements of operations, including the impact of share-based compensation, formation of Covetrus expenses, IT infrastructure, goodwill impairment charges, and other costs tied to integration efforts of the combined businesses, along with other items such legal, accounting and regulatory, re-branding and severance. The Company does not allocate to its segments' expenses managed at the corporate level, such as corporate wages and related benefits, corporate occupancy costs, professional services utilized at the corporate level, and non-recurring expenses. Other companies may not define or calculate adjusted EBITDA by segment in the same way.

The following tables summarize adjusted EBITDA by segment:

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the financial information presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company is providing certain non-GAAP financial measures (discussed below). Management uses these measures in the management of our business and believes that they are useful to investors in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends.

The following tables reconcile non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Covetrus management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, including pro forma adjustments to reflect the timing of the acquisition of Vets First Choice in the first quarter of 2019, provide useful additional information to investors regarding Covetrus’ results of operations as they provide another measure of Covetrus’ profitability and ability to service its debt, and are considered important to financial analysts covering Covetrus’ industry.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytic tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Covetrus’ non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently than similarly named measures reported by other companies. In addition, using non-GAAP measures may have limited value as they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on reported financial results and cash flows. When analyzing Covetrus’ performance, it is important to evaluate each adjustment in the reconciliation tables and use adjusted measures in addition to, and not as an alternative to, GAAP measures.

Non-GAAP Net Sales and Segment Net Sales (Unaudited)

Covetrus delivers products, software and technology-enabled services across the globe through three reportable segments: North America, Europe, and APAC & Emerging Markets. 

Organic net sales growth is a non-GAAP measure that Covetrus uses to evaluate period-over-period financial performance. The Company believes this non-GAAP financial metric provides useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects and is a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons. Organic net sales growth excludes the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations, M&A and divestitures, which can impact year-over-year comparisons. Additionally, the Company has provided certain pro forma information to reflect the timing of the Vets First Choice acquisition in the first quarter of 2019.


The following tables summarize non-GAAP net sales and non-GAAP organic net sales growth for Covetrus and each reportable segment:

Non-GAAP EBITDA, Pro Forma EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Pro Forma Adjusted Net Income (Unaudited)

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, pro forma EBITDA, pro forma adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and pro forma adjusted net income are non-GAAP financial measures used to (i) aid management and investors with year-over-year comparability, (ii) determine management performance under the Company's compensation plans, (iii) plan and forecast, (iv) communicate the Company's financial performance to its board of directors, shareholders, and investment analysts, and (v) understand the Company's operating performance without regard to items we do not consider a component of the Company's core ongoing operating performance. Such measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information provided in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA adjustments include share-based compensation, transaction costs, formation of Covetrus expenses, separation programs and executive severance, carve-out operating expenses, IT infrastructure, capital structure and goodwill impairment charges, strategic consulting, and other (income) expense items, net.

A reconciliation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to net income (loss) attributable to Covetrus, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is as follows:
