May 4, 2023 [crocon media – msteph] – Kraft Heinz has reported a solid financial performance for Q1 2023, with net sales of $6.5 billion, an increase of 7.3% compared to the same period last year. The organic net sales grew by 9.4%, driven by growth in Foodservice, Emerging Markets, and U.S. Retail GROW platforms. The company has reported a net income of $837 million, an increase of 7.1% YoY. The increase in net income was primarily driven by higher adjusted EBITDA and lapping non-cash impairment losses in the prior year period. The company’s adjusted EBITDA increased by 10.3% YoY to $1.5 billion. Diluted EPS was $0.68, up 7.9% compared to the prior year period.
Kraft Heinz has reaffirmed its 2023 Organic Net Sales growth expectation of 4% to 6% compared to 2022. The company has raised its 2023 Constant Currency Adjusted EBITDA guidance to growth of 4% to 6% compared to 2022. The company has also raised its 2023 Adjusted EPS guidance to be in the range of $2.83 to $2.91, which includes a negative impact of approximately $0.04 from expected unfavorable changes in non-cash pension and post-retirement benefits and a currency headwind of approximately $0.02 at current foreign exchange rates.
Kraft Heinz’s Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly dividend of $0.40 per share of common stock payable on June 30, 2023, to stockholders of record as of June 6, 2023.
Overall, the company’s strong Q1 2023 results and raised guidance suggest that it is well positioned to deliver growth and create value for its shareholders.
