05/12/2022 | 10:27am

TORONTO, May 12, 2022 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Limited ("Corby" or the "Company") (TSX: CSW.A) (TSX: CSW.B) today released its fiscal 2022 third quarter results for the period ended March 31, 2022.

Quarterly Dividend declared of $0.24/share +14% vs last year.

Solid Q3 performance with Adjusted Revenue +4% vs last year (Reported Revenue +2%).

 9 months YTD Adjusted Revenue back to growth +1% vs last year (Reported Revenue -1%).

Quarterly dividend

The Corby Board of Directors is pleased to declare a dividend of $0.24 per Voting Class A Common Shares and Non-Voting Class B Common Shares of the Company, in line with our dividend policy. This dividend is payable on June 10, 2022 to shareholders of record as at the close of business on May 27, 2022.  

Financial Results

Adjusted Revenue for the third quarter increased +4%. Adjusted Revenue for the fiscal YTD is now back to growth and increased +1%, despite supply chain challenges (Reported Revenue +2% Q3, -1% fiscal YTD).

Sales, Marketing and Administration expenses increased +11% fiscal YTD, cycling a very low comparison base, as such spend was significantly constrained during the pandemic last year but is now back to a more normative level.

As a result, our Net Earnings were impacted by the exceptionally high comparative of base last year, while continuing to show solid growth when compared to pre-pandemic results:

  • Adjusted Net Earnings decreased -10% for the fiscal YTD compared to last year (Reported Net Earnings -18% fiscal YTD)
  • Adjusted Net Earnings are above fiscal YTD 2020 (i.e., pre-pandemic) by +7% CAGR (Reported Net Earnings are above fiscal YTD 2020 by +2% CAGR)

"Despite the global environment that remains volatile, I am encouraged by another solid quarter of top-line growth, with underlying positive consumer demand and market trends. This has given us confidence to progressively bring back our advertising and promotional investment to pre-pandemic levels to fuel momentum on our strategic brands and sustain future growth" noted Nicolas Krantz, CEO.

Corby's efforts last year were also recognized by the LCBO, its largest customer, at its annual Elsie Awards event. Corby received the Partner of the Year - Large Supplier/Agent award, in addition to the Partnership Award – Spirits and Best Gift Item award.

"Being recognized for partnership with the LCBO through customer and consumer centricity is a testament to the dedication, passion and hard work of our people to overcome the challenges of the past year and create value for all our stakeholders, contributing to our year-to-date results," continued Mr. Krantz.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

Management believes the non-GAAP measures defined above are important supplemental measures of operating performance and highlight trends in the core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures.

Management believes that these measures allow for assessment of the Company's operating performance and financial condition on a basis that is more consistent and comparable between reporting periods.

The following table presents a reconciliation of Revenue to Adjusted Revenue, Earnings from Operations to Adjusted Earnings from Operations and Net Earnings to Adjusted Net Earnings to their most directly comparable financial measures for the three-and-nine months ended March 31, 2022, and 2021:
