J.M. Smucker’s Q1 results miss expectations

The J.M. Smucker Company (NYSE: SJM) missed market estimates for revenue and earnings in the first quarter of 2020, causing shares to fall over 5% in premarket hours on Tuesday. The consensus estimate was for earnings of $1.74 per share on revenue of $1.87 billion.

Net sales dropped 6% year-over-year to $1.77 billion, reflecting the impact of $73.1 million of net sales in the prior year attributed to the divested US baking business. Sales results were also negatively impacted by lower volume/mix and net price realization. Comparable net sales fell 4%.

Net income rose 16% year-over-year to $154.6 million, or $1.36 per share. Adjusted EPS fell 11% to $1.58.

Gross profit increased 3%, driven mainly by a favorable net impact of lower prices and lower costs, and the benefit of the Ainsworth acquisition.

The company posted sales declines across all its segments during the first quarter compared to the prior-year period. In US Retail Pet Foods, sales results were impacted by volume/mix and a decrease in private label products. Sales in US Retail Coffee were hurt by lower volume/mix, mainly attributable to the Folgers brand, and net price realization.
