EveryWare Global, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results

LANCASTER, Ohio, March 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EveryWare Global, Inc. ("EveryWare" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:EVRY), announced today financial results for the last three months and full year for 2013. Led by the iconic Oneida and Anchor Hocking brands, EveryWare is the leading global marketer of tabletop and food preparation products for the consumer and foodservice markets.

Financial Highlights for the Quarter ended December 31, 2013:

  • Total revenue increased 4.6% to $129.3 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 10.2% to $15.1million
  • EBITDA decreased 113.0% to $(1.2) million versus the prior year period. The decrease was primarily due to one-time items, including an adjustment to inventory reflecting a change in estimate in the capitalization of manufacturing variances.
  • Net loss for the fourth quarter totaled $(14.3) million.

Financial Highlights for 2013:

  • Total revenue increased 4.3% to $439.8 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 4.1% to $51.5 million.
  • EBITDA decreased 8.9% to $29.7 million.
  • Net loss totaled $(17.4) million.

Sam Solomon, interim Chief Executive Officer of EveryWare stated, "I am pleased to join the EveryWare team and I am excited about the Company's prospects. With a renewed focus on our most important channels and by leveraging our iconic brands, we are taking actions that will create more customer value, improve margins, reduce costs, more efficiently allocate capital and ultimately generate free cash that can be used to invest in the business and pay down debt."

"My first 4 weeks have been very busy. While getting to know key members of the EveryWare team, I prioritized initiatives to drive cash flow and met with key customers and suppliers. The team completed the Company's first 10K and secured an equity commitment letter from our largest shareholder. I look forward to the hard work ahead and sharing more as the team refines the Company's strategy."

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2013:

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased $5.7 million, or 4.6%, to $129.3 million from $123.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in fourth quarter revenue is primarily attributable to 119.2% higher revenues in the international segment and to a 1.0% increase in specialty segment revenues. Revenue declines in the consumer and foodservice segments of 4.6% and 6.3%, respectively, offset these increases.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased $3.7 million, or 16.2%, to $26.5 million from $22.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in operating expenses is due primarily to higher SG&A costs related to restructuring costs and expenses at the recently acquired business in the UK. Excluding expenses related to this acquisition and one-time restructuring costs, operating expenses declined 2.1% or $0.4 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased 10.2% to $15.1 million, up from $13.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to higher revenues from the Company's international segment.

EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2013 decreased 113.0% to $(1.2) million, down from $9.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decrease in EBITDA was primarily driven by higher operating expenses reflecting the recently acquired UK business, restructuring related expenses, as well as the adjustment to the Company's inventory balances relating to capitalized manufacturing variances. For a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, see the financial data at the end of this release.

Net loss totaled $(14.3) million for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. After adjusting for the impact of certain one-time non-operational items related to the Company's going public process in May 2013, various one time sponsor and restructuring costs and adjustments to inventory balances, fourth quarter 2013 adjusted net loss would have been $(1.0) million and EPS would have been $(0.05) per share.

For purposes of computing EPS for the fourth quarter of 2013, common shares of 20.5 million, representing the weighted average share count for the fourth quarter, were used. Actual common shares outstanding as of December 31, 2013 were 20.5 million.

Financial Results for Year to Date December 31, 2013:

Total revenue for 2013 increased $18.1 million, or 4.3%, to $439.8 million from $421.7 million for the prior year. Excluding currency fluctuation, the revenue increase is 4.5%. The increase was primarily driven by a 55.9% increase in revenue in the Company's international segment and a 3.6% increase in revenue in the specialty segment. Offsetting these increases are 0.6% and 1.4% revenue declines in the Company's consumer and foodservice segments respectively, during 2013.

Total 2013 operating expenses decreased $1.3 million, or 1.5%, to $85.7 million from $87.0 million for the prior year. The decline in operating expenses is due primarily to cost savings generated since the merger of Oneida and Anchor Hocking. Operating expenses declined $4.9 million or 6.3% in 2013, excluding expenses related to the UK acquisition and one-time sponsor and restructuring costs.

Adjusted EBITDA for 2013 increased $2.0 million to $51.5 million from $49.5 million. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to revenue growth and lower operating expenses.

EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2013 decreased 8.9% to $29.7 million, down from $32.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in EBITDA was primarily due to the mix of sales by segment for the year and an adjustment to our inventory balances resulting from the change in estimate as discussed above which were partially offset by decreases in operating expenses and the gain on the bargain purchase of Metalrax. For a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income, see the financial data at the end of this release.

Net loss totaled $(17.4) million for the full year ended December 31, 2013 compared to a net loss of $(4.0) million for the full year ended December 31, 2012. After adjusting for the impact of certain one-time non-operational items related to the Company's going public process in May 2013, various one time sponsor and restructuring costs and adjustments to inventory balances, adjusted net income would have been $2.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 and EPS would have been $0.17 per share.

The Company is in compliance with its covenants as of 2013 year end. While we have not completed the financial results for the period ended on March 31, 2014, we believe we will not be in compliance with the consolidated leverage ratio requirement under the Term Loan agreement as of March 31, 2014. On March 31, 2014, Monomoy Capital Partners, L.P., Monomoy Capital Partners II, L.P. and their affiliated funds (the "Monomoy Funds") provided the Company with an equity commitment letter pursuant to which the Monomoy Funds committed to offer to purchase securities from the Company having an aggregate purchase price in an amount sufficient to exercise the Company's right under the Term Loan agreement to "cure" the violation, but no more than $12.0 million in the aggregate, which amount will be reduced by the amount of any other equity raised to fund a Cure Contribution. The equity commitment letter will expire on December 31, 2014, or earlier if the Company amends the terms of the financial maintenance covenants, if it obtains a waiver of the financial maintenance covenants or if the lenders agree to forbear from exercising any remedies with respect to a default or an event of default with respect to the financial maintenance covenants.

The Company has also engaged Alvarez & Marsal to assist in a number of projects, including working capital management, expense reduction, product profitability and margin improvement.

Note to financial results:

On May 21, 2013, EveryWare Global, Inc. consummated a business combination with ROI Acquisition Corp. in which EveryWare Global, Inc. became a wholly-owned subsidiary of ROI Acquisition Corp. In connection with the closing of the Business Combination, ROI Acquisition Corp. changed its name from ROI Acquisition Corp. to EveryWare Global, Inc.

EBITDA Reconciliation:

In accordance with the SEC's Regulation G, the financial tables included herein provide non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release and a reconciliation to the most closely related Generally Accepted Accounting Principle (GAAP) measure. EveryWare believes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and net income and EPS adjusted to exclude costs related to the ROI Acquisition Corp. merger and our exchange listing process provide supplemental non-GAAP financial information that is useful to investors in understanding EveryWare's core business and trends. In addition, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are the basis on which EveryWare's management assesses performance. Although EveryWare believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented enhance investors' understanding of EveryWare's business and performance, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered an alternative to GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA (f) $ 15,087 $ 13,692 $ 51,543 $ 49,492

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA plus certain restructuring expenses; certain acquisition/merger-related transaction fees; inventory adjustments; management fees and reimbursed expenses paid to our equity sponsor, certain other adjustments for foreign exchange gains and losses and non-cash compensation expense that management believes are not representative of our core operating performance.

(a) Includes restructuring expenses and various professional and consulting services in connection with the identification and implementation of synergies and cost improvements, including severance costs.

(b) For 2013, includes expenses related to the business combination transaction with ROI. For 2012, includes transaction fees and expenses related to the Anchor Merger.

(c) Represents adjustments for FIFO inventory valuations, lower-of-cost-or-market valuations and changes in the obsolete inventory reserve, which is a component of cost of sales. The calculation of the factory manufacturing variance capitalized in inventory was based on historical experience. In the fourth quarter 2013, we identified a deviation from historical experience resulting in a change in estimate of $5.9 million.

(d) Represents management fees and reimbursed expenses paid to Monomoy for management services.

(e) Primarily represents foreign exchange gains and losses, gains and losses on the disposal of fixed assets, non-cash compensation expense and long-lived asset impairments, when applicable.

(f) Excludes pro forma adjustments presented in the Proxy Statement filed by ROI Acquisition Corp. with the SEC on April 29, 2013.
