Beyond Meat (BYND): Here are a few noteworthy points from the Q4 earnings report

Beyond Meat expects revenue for the full year of 2023 to range between $375-415 million

Shares of Beyond Meat Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) were up 9% on Friday, a day after the company delivered fourth quarter 2022 earnings results that surpassed projections. The stock has gained 65% year-to-date. Here are a few noteworthy points from the earnings report:

Better-than-expected results

Beyond Meat reported revenue of $79.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, which was down nearly 21% from the year-ago quarter but exceeded estimates of $75.8 million. Adjusted loss per share was $1.05, narrower than the loss of $1.27 per share reported last year as well as the consensus estimate of a loss of $1.18 per share.

Narrower losses

The company’s loss from operations in Q4 was $65.7 million compared to $77.7 million in the year-ago period. The reduction was mainly driven by lower general and administrative expenses, reduced expenses related to production trial activities, lower marketing expenses, and reduced non-production headcount expenses.

Lower expenses

Beyond Meat’s operating expenses of $62.8 million were down around 32% year-over-year and 16% sequentially as the company continues its efforts to right-size its expense base. The decrease was driven by lower G&A and marketing expenses, reduced production trial activities and people expenses, as well as lower restructuring costs.

Outlook

Beyond Meat expects revenue for the full year of 2023 to range between $375-415 million, which represents a decrease of approx. 1-10% from 2022. In the first half of the year, the company anticipates a net sales decline in the mid-teens range on a percentage basis compared to the respective year-ago period.

However, during the second half of 2023, net sales are expected to grow in the double-digit range. This growth is likely to be driven by pricing changes that the company has been trying out on a limited basis. Gross margin for the year is expected to be in the low double-digit range. It is expected to start out slightly positive at the beginning of the year and then increase sequentially through the period.
