  • First quarter 2024 reported and adjusted EPS* were $3.23 and $2.08, an increase of 13% and decrease of 26%, respectively
  • Completed sale of South Korea business, another step in reshaping the portfolio and redeploying assets
  • Raising guidance for full-year reported EPS to be in the range of $10.35 to $11.00 and adjusted EPS to be in the range of $9.20 to $9.85

WESTCHESTER, Ill., May 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ingredion Incorporated (NYSE: INGR), a leading global provider of ingredient solutions to the food and beverage manufacturing industry, today reported results for the first quarter of 2024. The results, reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for the first quarter of 2024 and 2023, include items that are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company presents.

“Against a strong comparison with last year’s record first quarter performance, this quarter’s results exceeded expectations. As anticipated, our net sales volumes in the quarter improved sequentially, despite the impact of extreme cold weather on shipments in the U.S. and taking into account the sale of our South Korea business,” said Jim Zallie, Ingredion’s president and chief executive officer. “Furthermore, we maintained our gross margins above 22% as the strength of our business model effectively managed the impact of variable rate contracts which require the pass through of lower corn costs.”

“Looking forward, our Driving Growth Roadmap continues to guide our long-term value creation. Also, in support of our new Winning Aspiration, the reorganization is enabling clearer focus on the opportunities presented by our global customers to drive growth. We are encouraged by the levels of customer engagement, particularly in our texture solutions business. Additionally, we anticipate deploying cash this year toward organic investments, dividends, and a step-up in share repurchases,” Zallie concluded.

As previously disclosed, effective January 1, 2024, Ingredion will report financial and operational results under its new reporting structure. For comparison purposes, results for the first quarter of 2023 throughout this news release are unaudited and have been revised to reflect the new reporting structure in which there are three new reportable segments as described below.
*Adjusted diluted earnings per share (“adjusted EPS”), adjusted operating income and adjusted effective income tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures. See section II of the Supplemental Financial Information entitled “Non-GAAP Information” following the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this news release for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Net Sales

  • First quarter net sales were $1,882 million, a decrease of 12% from the year-ago period, driven by both price mix and volume declines, partially offset by foreign exchange impacts. The impact of the South Korea divestiture resulted in a $51 million decrease in sales volume for the period. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, net sales were down 13%.

Operating Income

  • First quarter reported and adjusted operating income were $213 million and $216 million, respectively, a decrease of 27% for both, versus the prior year. The decrease in reported and adjusted operating income was driven by downtime associated with cold weather, hyperinflation in Argentina, and the carry-forward of higher cost inventory. Excluding foreign exchange impacts, reported and adjusted operating income were down 28% from the same period last year.

  • First quarter operating loss for All Other was ($4) million, up $4 million from the year-ago period. The change was driven by lower operating loss for protein fortification and other factors.

**All Other consists of the businesses of multiple operating segments that are not individually or collectively classified as reportable segments. Net sales from All Other are generated primarily by sweetener and starch sales by our Pakistan business, sales of stevia and other ingredients from our PureCircle and Sugar Reduction businesses, and pea protein ingredients from our Protein Fortification business.

Dividends and Share Repurchases

In the first quarter of 2024, the Company paid $51 million in dividends to shareholders and declared a quarterly dividend of $0.78 per share that was paid on April 23, 2024. During the quarter, the Company repurchased $1 million of outstanding shares of common stock.

Updated Second Quarter and Full-Year 2024 Outlook

For the second quarter of 2024, the Company expects net sales to be flat to down low single-digits and reported and adjusted operating income to be up low to mid-single-digits.

The Company now expects its full-year 2024 reported EPS to be in the range of $10.35 to $11.00, which includes the impact of the gain on the divestiture of the South Korea business completed on February 1, 2024, and adjusted EPS to be in the range of $9.20 to $9.85.

Excluding the effects of the divestiture of the South Korea business, the Company expects full-year 2024 net sales to be flat to up low single-digits, reflecting the pass-through of lower corn values. Reported and adjusted operating income is expected to be up mid-single-digits.

Corporate costs are still expected to be up mid-single-digits.

For full-year 2024, the Company now expects a reported and adjusted effective tax rate of 24.5% to 25.5%, and 26.5% to 27.5%, respectively.

Cash from operations for full-year 2024 is still expected to be in the range of $750 million to $900 million. Capital expenditures for the full year are still expected to be approximately $340 million.

II. Non-GAAP Information

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the company uses non-GAAP historical financial measures, which exclude certain GAAP items such as resegmentation costs, net gain on sale of business, Mexico tax items, and other specified items. The company generally uses the term “adjusted” when referring to these non-GAAP amounts.

Company management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally for strategic decision making, forecasting future results and evaluating current performance. By disclosing non-GAAP financial measures, management intends to provide investors with a more meaningful, consistent comparison of the company’s operating results and trends for the periods presented. These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the company’s operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; so the non-GAAP information is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP measure is provided in the tables below.

Notes

  1. During the first quarter of 2024, the company recorded pre-tax resegmentation costs of $3 million primarily related to the company’s resegmentation effective January 1, 2024.
  2. During the first quarter of 2024, the company recorded a net, pre-tax gain of $82 million as a result of the sale of its business in South Korea completed on February 1, 2024.
  3. During the first quarter of 2023, the company recorded pre-tax charges of $5 million primarily related to the impacts of a U.S.-based work stoppage.
  4. During the first quarter of 2024 and 2023, the company recorded tax benefits of $6 million and $7 million as a result of the movement of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar and its impact on the remeasurement of its Mexico financial statements during the periods.

Above is a reconciliation of the company’s expected full-year 2024 diluted EPS to its expected full-year 2024 adjusted diluted EPS. The amounts above may not reflect certain future charges, costs and/or gains that are inherently difficult to predict and estimate due to their unknown timing, effect and/or significance. The company generally excludes these adjustments from its adjusted EPS guidance, which makes it more confident in its ability to forecast adjusted EPS than it is in its ability to forecast GAAP EPS. These amounts include, but are not limited to, adjustments to GAAP EPS for resegmentation costs, net gain on sale of business and certain Mexico tax items.

These adjustments to GAAP EPS for 2024 include the following:

  1. Resegmentation costs related to the company’s resegmentation effective January 1, 2024
  2. Net gain as a result of the sale of company’s business in South Korea completed on February 1, 2024
  3. Tax benefit from the movement of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar and its impact on the remeasurement of the company’s Mexico financial statements during the period
