June 14, 2022

MORRISVILLE, N.C., June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyxus International, Inc. (OTC Pink: PYYX) ("Pyxus" or the "Company"), a global value-added agricultural company, today announced results for its quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2022. As described in more detail below, results presented for the prior fiscal year period reflect the combined results of the Successor and Predecessor periods reflecting, respectively, the periods prior to and subsequent to the Company's emergence from Chapter 11 proceedings.

Highlights *
  • Sales and other operating revenues were $1,639.9 million, which increased $308.0 million or 23.1% from the prior fiscal year.
  • Gross profit as a percent of sales was 13.8%, which increased from 12.1% in the prior fiscal year.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were $142.0 million, which decreased $55.9 million or 28.2% from the prior fiscal year.
  • Net loss attributable to Pyxus International, Inc. was $82.1 million, which improved $35.6 million or 30.2% from the prior fiscal year despite $32.2 million of goodwill impairment in fiscal 2022.
  • Adjusted EBITDA** increased $33.2 million or 35.5% to $126.7 million.
  • Cash and cash equivalents was $198.8 million, an increase of $106.1 million, as of March 31, 2022 from the prior fiscal year end.
  • While shipping constraints continue, as of March 31, 2022, 91.2% of the Company's inventory is committed to specific customers to meet near-term forecasted demand.
  • In December 2021, the Company publicly announced its environmental, social, and governance framework, which provides the connection between its purpose and business priorities.
  • In February 2022, the Company entered into a new $100.0 million ABL credit facility with PNC Bank to replace its existing $75.0 million ABL credit facility.
  • In June 2022, the Company entered into an agreement to amend and extend the Company's delayed draw term loan facility.

Pieter Sikkel, Pyxus' President and CEO said, "We are proud of the progress made by the business during fiscal year 2022. Our employees worked diligently to successfully increase volumes and revenue compared to the prior year while continuing to navigate global challenges, which largely stem from the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and the unfortunate events in Ukraine.

"We continued to expand our customer relationships as customers sought solutions to reduce supply chain complexities and improve operational efficiencies. Expansion of these relationships, partially attributable to our environmental, social, and governance ("ESG") framework that we publicly announced in December 2021, increased our market share in Africa, Asia, and South America and contributed to a 16.8% increase in kilo volume compared to last year.

"Our efforts in fiscal 2022 to execute on our strategy to increase financing sources and working capital lines around the globe resulted in a new asset-based lending ("ABL") credit facility with PNC Bank in February 2022, which provides the Company with an extended maturity date, reduced costs, and increased potential borrowing availability. In addition, in June 2022, we entered into an agreement to amend our delayed draw term loan facility ("DDTL"), which provides the Company with an extended maturity date, reduced costs, and increased financial flexibility.

"In January 2022, we completed the exit of our cash-flow-negative cannabinoid operations. Our restructuring activities generated savings in SG&A, which contributed to a $55.9 million decrease in expense compared to last year. As a result, our SG&A expense has normalized and is consistent with levels prior to our investments to develop those businesses.

"For the full year, we expect fiscal 2023 sales to be between $1.75 billion and $1.95 billion and adjusted EBITDA to be between $130 million and $160 million as we anticipate increased demand for our leaf products, the continuation of COVID-related logistical challenges, and cost and price increases due to inflation. Maintaining farmer livelihood and a supply chain of responsibly sourced, sustainable, and traceable products remains a top priority as we engage with customers about the impact of inflation on the cost and price of tobacco going forward. Additionally, we have taken proactive measures to secure inputs for the next year, such as fertilizer and fuel, allowing us to remain focused on delivering stakeholder value as we work to grow a better world."

Performance Summary for Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2022

Sales and other operating revenues increased $308.0 million, or 23.1%, to $1,639.9 million for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined sales and other operating revenues of $1,331.9 million for the year ended March 31, 2021. This increase was due to a 16.8% increase in kilo volume and a 7.5% increase in average price per kilo. The 16.8% increase in kilo volume was driven by larger crop sizes in Africa and increased market share in Africa, Asia, and South America partially due to customers reversing their vertical integration in certain markets. In addition, 21.1 million kilos or $178.3 million of shipments were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic and customer shipping instructions from the prior year into the current year and was offset by similar volume of shipments expected in the current that has been delayed into next year in Africa, North America, and South America. The 7.5% increase in average price per kilo was primarily due to product mix having a higher concentration of lamina in Asia, Africa, and Europe, as well as customer and grade mix in Africa and North America.

Cost of goods and services sold increased $242.3 million, or 20.7%, to $1,412.8 million for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined cost of goods and services sold of $1,170.5 million for the year ended March 31, 2021. This increase was driven by the increase in sales and other operating revenues. Average cost per kilo increased primarily due to higher tobacco prices.

Gross profit as a percent of sales increased to 13.8% for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined gross profit as a percent of sales of 12.1% for the year ended March 31, 2021. This increase was mainly due to the deconsolidation in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 of the subsidiaries that engaged in legal cannabis operations in Canada (the "Canadian Cannabis Subsidiaries"), the wind down of the industrial hemp and CBD businesses, and customer mix. Average gross profit per kilo increased primarily due to customer mix.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses decreased $55.9 million, or 28.2%, to $142.0 million for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined selling, general, and administrative expenses of $197.9 million for the year ended March 31, 2021. Selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percent of sales decreased to 8.7% for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined selling, general, and administrative expenses as a percent of sales of 14.9% for the year ended March 31, 2021. These decreases were related to increased sales and other operating revenues, the deconsolidation of the Canadian Cannabis Subsidiaries in the fourth quarter of year ended March 31, 2021, and savings from restructuring initiatives.

Goodwill impairment charges of $32.2 million for the year ended March 31, 2022 were from the full write-off of the carrying value of goodwill for each of the Company's reporting units.

Loss on deconsolidation/disposition of subsidiaries decreased $59.5 million, or 84.8%, to $10.7 million for the year ended March 31, 2022 from combined loss on deconsolidation/disposition of subsidiaries of $70.2 million for the year ended March 31, 2021. The combined loss on deconsolidation/disposition of subsidiaries in the prior year was attributable to the deconsolidation of the Canadian Cannabis Subsidiaries in connection with their commencement in January 2021 of the proceedings in Canada for relief from creditors (the "CCAA Proceeding"), while the loss on deconsolidation/disposition of subsidiaries in fiscal 2022 was attributable to write-downs of the Company's related party receivable from the Canadian Cannabis Subsidiaries in the course of the CCAA Proceeding during fiscal 2022 and the disposition of the Company's former Humble Juice subsidiary during the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Combined reorganization items of $106.0 million for the year ended March 31, 2021 were incurred during the pendency of the Company's Chapter 11 proceedings (the "Chapter 11 Cases").

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's liquidity requirements are affected by various factors including crop seasonality, foreign currency and interest rates, green tobacco prices, customer mix, crop size and quality, and legal and professional costs. At year end, the Company's available credit lines and cash totaled $500.9 million, including $287.2 million of availability under foreign seasonal lines of credit.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Readers are cautioned that the statements contained in this report regarding expectations of the Company's performance or other matters that may affect its business, results of operations, or financial condition are "forward-looking statements" as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements, which are based on current expectations of future events, may be identified by the use of words such as "strategy," "expects," "continues," "plans," "anticipates," "believes," "will," "estimates," "intends," "projects," "goals," "targets," and other words of similar meaning. These statements also may be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate, or if known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could vary materially from those anticipated, estimated, or projected. Some of these risks and uncertainties include: 

  • risks related to the Company's indebtedness, including that the Company has substantial debt which may adversely affect it by limiting future sources of financing, interfering with its ability to pay interest, and principal on its indebtedness and subjecting it to additional risks, the Company requires a significant amount of cash to service indebtedness and its ability to generate cash depends on many factors beyond its control, the Company may not be able to refinance or renew its indebtedness, which may have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, the Company may not be able to satisfy the covenants included in its financing arrangements, which could result in the default of its outstanding debt obligations, and despite current indebtedness levels, the Company may still be able to incur substantially more debt, which could exacerbate further the risks associated with its significant leverage;
  • risks and uncertainties relating to the Company's liquidity, including but not limited to: whether foreign lenders that have provided short-term operating credit lines to fund leaf tobacco operations at the local level cease to provide such funding, uncertainty and continuing risks associated with the Company's ability to achieve its goals and continue as a going concern, and unanticipated developments with respect to liquidity needs and sources of liquidity could result in a deficiency in liquidity;
  • risk and uncertainties related to the Company's leaf tobacco operations, including changes in the timing of anticipated shipments, changes in anticipated geographic product sourcing, changes in relevant capital markets affecting the terms and availability of short-term seasonal financing, political instability, currency and interest rate fluctuations, the impact of high inflation, shifts in the global supply and demand position for tobacco products, changes in tax laws and regulations or the interpretation of tax laws and regulations, resolution of tax matters, adverse weather conditions, the impact of climate change on weather patterns in tobacco-growing regions, the impact of disasters or other unusual events affecting international commerce, the impacts of potential international sanctions on the Company's ability to sell or source tobacco in certain regions, and changes in costs incurred in supplying products and related services; and
  • risks and uncertainties related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including possible delays in shipments of leaf tobacco, including from the closure or restricted activities at ports or other channels, disruptions to the Company's operations or the operations of suppliers and customers resulting from restrictions on the ability of employees and others in the supply chain to travel and work, border closures, determinations by Pyxus or shippers to temporarily suspend operations in affected areas, whether the Company's operations that have been classified as "essential" under various governmental orders restricting business activities will continue to be so classified or, even if so classified, whether site-specific health and safety concerns related to COVID-19 might otherwise require operations at any of the Company's facilities to be halted for some period of time, negative consumer purchasing behavior with respect to the Company's products or the products of its leaf tobacco customers during periods of government mandates restricting activities imposed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the extent to which the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operations and the demand for its products may not coincide with impacts experienced in the United States due to the international scope of its operations, including in emerging and other markets in which the Company operates where the timing and severity of COVID-19 outbreaks and the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations may differ from those in the United States.

A further list and description of these risks, uncertainties, and other factors can be found in Part I, Item 1A "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended March 31, 2022 and in its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statements that it may make from time to time except to the extent required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). They include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted free cash flow, and adjusted net debt. Tables showing the reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures are attached to the release. The range of Adjusted EBITDA anticipated for fiscal year ending March 31, 2022 is calculated in a manner consistent with the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA in the attached tables. Because of the forward-looking nature of the estimated range of Adjusted EBITDA, it is impractical to present a quantitative reconciliation of such measure to a comparable GAAP measure, and accordingly no such GAAP measure is being presented.

(1)

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), and Adjusted Free Cash Flow are not measures of results of operations or cash flow from operations under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP") and should not be considered as an alternative to other U.S. GAAP measurements. We have presented EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to adjust for the items identified above because we believe that it would be helpful to the readers of our financial information to understand the impact of these items on our reported results. This presentation enables readers to better compare our results to similar companies that may not incur the impact of various items identified above. Management acknowledges that there are many items that impact a company's reported results or operating cash flows and these lists are not intended to present all items that may have impacted these items. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and any ratios calculated based on these measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies or appearing in our debt obligations or agreements. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Free Cash Flow as presented may not equal column or row totals due to rounding.



(2)

RECONCILIATION OF ITEMS FOR THE COMBINED PERIODS

Pyxus International, Inc. (the "Company," "we" or "us") applied Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") ASC Topic 852 – Reorganizations ("ASC 852") in preparing our condensed consolidated financial statements. For periods subsequent to the commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases on June 15, 2020, ASC 852 requires distinguishing transactions associated with the reorganization separate from activities related to the ongoing operations of the business. Upon the effectiveness of the plan of reorganization (the "Plan") and the emergence from the Chapter 11 Cases of the Company and its subsidiaries that commenced the Chapter 11 Cases, the Company determined it qualified for fresh start reporting under ASC 852, which resulted in the Company becoming a new entity for financial reporting purposes on the August 24, 2020 effective date of the Plan. The Company elected to apply fresh start reporting using a convenience date of August 31, 2020. The Company evaluated and concluded the events between August 24, 2020 and August 31, 2020 were not material to the Company's financial reporting on both a quantitative or qualitative basis. Due to the application of fresh start reporting, the pre-emergence and post-emergence periods are not comparable. The lack of comparability is emphasized by the use of a "black line" to separate the Predecessor and Successor periods in the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements. References to "Successor" relate to the Company's financial position and results of operations after August 31, 2020. References to "Predecessor" relate to the financial position and results of operations on or before August 31, 2020.

We do not believe that reviewing the results for Predecessor and Successor periods in isolation would be useful in identifying any trends in or reaching any conclusions regarding our overall operating performance. Management believes that, for periods that span the effective date of the Plan, operating metrics for the Successor period when combined with the Predecessor period provides more meaningful comparisons to other periods and are useful in identifying current business trends. Accordingly, the tables below present the combined results for the twelve months ended March 31, 2021. The combined results (referenced as "Combined (Non-GAAP)") for the twelve months ended March 31, 2021 represent the sum of the reported amounts for the Predecessor period from April 1, 2020 through August 31, 2020 combined with the Successor period from September 1, 2020 through March 31, 2021. These combined results are not considered to be prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and have not been prepared as pro forma results under applicable regulations. The combined operating results are presented for supplemental purposes only, may not reflect the actual results we would have achieved absent our emergence from bankruptcy, may not be indicative of future results and should not be viewed as a substitute for the financial results of the Predecessor period and Successor period presented in accordance with GAAP.
