SunOpta Inc. Announces Further Expansion of Modesto Aseptic Operation to Meet Increased Demand

SunOpta Inc. announced that in order to meet continued customer demand, it will further expand its Modesto, California aseptic processing and packaging operation. Following the announcement of the addition of a third processor in Modesto which will be commissioned during the first quarter of 2015, the company will add two multi-serve (liter/quart) fillers, expanding capacity and furthering the broad range of packaging formats it provides. The first new filler is expected to be in production by the end of fiscal 2014, with the second being commissioned in April 2015. The Modesto aseptic processing and packaging operation was initially commissioned in 2010 and since that time has undergone a number of expansions to meet continued growing demand. The operation is strategically paired with company's aseptic processing and packaging operation in Alexandria, Minnesota, and when completed, the expansions are expected to increase annual aseptic beverage packaging capacity to more than 500 million packages.

SunOpta Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Financial Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended July 5, 2014; Provides Cash Flow Guidance for the Second Half of 2014

SunOpta Inc. reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter and six months ended July 5, 2014. For the quarter, the company's revenues increased 8.7% to a record $338.3 million compared to $311.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. Operating income was $16.8 million compared to $13.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. The growth in operating income was driven by increased volume and margins on organic raw materials, increased volumes of Consumer Products, improved performance in sunflower operations, as well as improved margins at Opta Minerals as a result of cost reductions and product mix. EBITDA was $22.7 million compared to $18.7 million in the prior year. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $14.604 against loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $11.080 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations were $8.997 million or $0.13 diluted per share against loss from continuing operations of $15.038 million or $0.23 diluted loss per share a year ago. Earnings attributable to the company were $8.708 million or $0.13 per diluted share against loss attributable to the company of $15.281 million or $0.23 per diluted share a year ago. Cash provided by operating activities was $33.182 million against $23.907 million a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was $4.063 million against $14.083 million a year ago. Excluding the impact of changes in commodity prices and foreign exchange rates, consolidated revenues increased 10.5%. Earnings from continuing operations before other items were $16.61 against $12.65 million a year ago. For the six months, the company's revenues increased 13.1% to $671.8 million, compared to $594.0 million in the first half of 2013. The increase in consolidated revenue was driven by strong demand for internationally sourced organic raw materials, continued growth in consumer packaged categories including aseptic beverages, frozen foods, and re-sealable pouch products, as well as new value-added ingredient business. This growth more than offset lower commodity grain sales and declines within Opta Minerals Inc. Operating income was $28.8 million compared to $24.0 million in the first half of 2013. Operating earnings were driven by increased volume and margins on organic raw materials, improved performance in the sunflower category, and increased volume of consumer products including aseptic beverages, frozen foods and healthy snacks, offset by margin pressure experienced in Opta Minerals due to cyclical market weakness, lower organic feed margins, and increased corporate costs to drive efficiency in the operating segments. EBITDA was $40.6 million compared to $34.8 million in the prior year. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes were $25.681 million against loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $2.459 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations were $15.617 million or $0.23 diluted per share against loss from continuing operations of $9.692 million or $0.15 diluted loss per share a year ago. Earnings attributable to the company were $15.348 million or $0.23 per diluted share against loss attributable to the company of $10.156 million or $0.15 loss per diluted share a year ago. Cash provided by operating activities was $20.586 million against $17.150 million a year ago, reflecting improved earnings and working capital efficiency. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was $7.287 million against $21.976 million a year ago. The debt went down to $174 million in the quarter, with the strong cash flow and results from operations. Earnings from continuing operations before other items were $29.84 against $22.96 million a year ago. The company is forecasting to generate positive operating cash flows over the back half of 2014.
