DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 31, 2017-- Amira Nature Foods Ltd (the “Company;” “Amira”, “us”, “we” or “our”) ( NYSE: ANFI), a leading global provider of branded, packaged Indian specialty rice, today reported financial results for the six months and fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

  • Revenue of $340.9 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $43.1 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12.6%
  • Profits after tax and adjusted profits after tax of $21.5 million and $22.9 million, respectively
  • Earnings per share and adjusted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.57 and $0.61, respectively

FY 2017 Financial Highlights:

  • Net debt to Adjusted EBITDA of 2.9x

Bruce Wacha, Amira’s Chief Financial Officer, stated, “We are pleased to report a return to growth during the second half of fiscal 2017. Our growth accelerated as we progressed through the year and we have passed an inflection point in the business where our rate of growth increased from down in the first half of the fiscal year to up 3% year-over-year through the six months ended March 31, 2017. This improvement in our business trend was driven by increased volumes in our core rice businesses which helped generate a 5% increase in revenues for the final three months of the fiscal year, with higher volumes offsetting lower Basmati rice pricing compared to the prior fiscal year. Our EBITDA margins were generally in-line with the average historical margins for the business, and down slightly year-over-year as a result of higher input costs and the timing of Basmati rice price increases during the fiscal year. We expect both our revenue and margins to benefit from our fiscal 2017 pricing actions going forward. We are optimistic about our business momentum as we start fiscal 2018 and believe we are well positioned to capitalize on the many opportunities in India and around the world to further grow the Amira brand and create value for our shareholders.”

Six Months Ended March 31, 2017 Results

Revenue for the six months ended March 31, 2017 was $340.9 million compared to $331.7 million in the prior year period.

Full Year Fiscal 2017 Results

Revenue for the full year of fiscal 2017 was $551.8 million compared to $563.4 million in fiscal 2016. The Company had increased volumes in its core rice business, which offset lower year-over-year pricing for Basmati rice. Amira branded sales were $245.6 million, compared to $247.2 million in 2016. Third party branded sales were $260.2 million in fiscal 2017 compared to $260.6 million in fiscal 2016.

Sales in India were $275.2 million, an increase of 11.9%, or an increase of 14.8% in INR compared to the prior year. International sales were $276.6 million compared to $317.5 million in fiscal 2016. The decline in international sales was due to lower sales of the Company’s institutional products coupled with lower pricing for Basmati rice.

Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2017 was $70.5 million compared to $74.7 million the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 12.8% for fiscal 2017 compared to 13.3% the prior year.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use the non-IFRS measures EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted profit after tax, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net working capital and net debt as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. We define:

(1) EBITDA as profit after tax plus finance costs (net of finance income), income tax expense and depreciation and amortization;

(2) adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus non-cash expense for share-based compensation for fiscal 2017, fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015, respectively, other one-time legal & professional charges for fiscal 2017, fiscal 2016 and one-time expenses related to proposed Senior Secured Second Lien Notes offering for fiscal 2015;

(3) adjusted profit after tax as profit after tax plus non-cash expense for share-based compensation for fiscal 2017, fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2015, respectively, one-time expenses related to proposed Senior Secured Second Lien Notes offering for fiscal 2015 and other one-time legal and professional charges for fiscal 2016;

(4) adjusted earnings per share as the quotient of: (a) adjusted profit after tax and (b) the sum of our weighted average number of shares (including dilutive impact of share options granted) for the applicable period and the ordinary shares subject to the exchange agreement between us and the non-controlling shareholders of Amira India during the applicable period;

(5) adjusted net working capital as total current assets minus (a) total current liabilities and (b) cash and cash equivalents, and plus current debt; and

(6) net debt as total current and non-current debt minus cash and cash equivalents.

We use both EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as measures of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis, as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations, for evaluating actual results against such expectations, and as a performance evaluation metric, including as part of assessing and administering our executive and employee incentive compensation programs. We believe that the use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA as non-IFRS measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance from period to period and from company to company by backing out potential differences caused by variations in items such as capital structure (affecting relative finance or interest expenses), the book amortization of intangibles (affecting relative amortization expenses), the age and book value of property and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expenses), and other non-cash expenses. We also present these non-IFRS measures because we believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as measures of the financial performance of companies in our industry.

These non-IFRS financial measures are not defined under IFRS and are not presented in accordance with IFRS. These non-IFRS financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, investors should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for profit/(loss) or other consolidated statements of operations data prepared in accordance with IFRS. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to:

  • it does not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • it does not reflect the finance or interest expenses, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debt;
  • it does not reflect income taxes or the cash requirements for any tax payments;
  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted net profit and EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
  • other companies may calculate EBITDA differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of this non-IFRS measure as a comparative measure.

We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our IFRS results and using EBITDA only as a supplemental measure.

We present adjusted EBITDA, adjusted profit after tax, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net working capital and net debt because we believe these measures provide additional metrics to evaluate our operations and, when considered with both our IFRS results and the reconciliation to profit after tax, basic and diluted earnings per share, working capital, and total current and non-current debt, respectively, provide a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. We also believe that these non-IFRS financial measures are useful to investors in assessing the operating performance of our business after reflecting the adjustments described above.

In the following tables we have provided reconciliation of non-IFRS measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measure:
