Tyson Chicken, Inc. Key Developments

Tyson Chicken, Inc. Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended March 31, 2012; Provides Outlook for the Rest of Fiscal 2012

Tyson Chicken, Inc. reported unaudited earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended March 31, 2012. For the quarter, the company reported sales of $2,911 million compared to $2,739 million last year. Operating income was $145 million compared to $37 million last year. The decrease in sales volumes in the second quarter and six months of fiscal 2012 was primarily attributable to a decrease in domestic production pounds as a result of balancing its supply with forecasted customer demand, partially offset by increases in international sales volumes and open-market meat purchases. Operating income was positively impacted by increases in average sale price, improved mix and operational improvements. These increases were partially offset by increased grain and feed ingredients costs of $65 million and $285 million for the second quarter and six months of fiscal 2012, respectively. Increases in other grow out operating costs of $23 million and $53 million also negatively impacted operating income for the second quarter and six months of fiscal 2012, respectively. For the six months, the company reported sales of $5,673 million compared to $5,358 million last year. Operating income was $177 million compared to $218 million last year. The company returned to its normalized operating margin range in the second quarter of fiscal 2012, and it expects results to remain strong for the remainder of the year.
