Jamieson Wellness Inc. Reports Strong Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

March 13, 2024

Profitable revenue growth of 23.5% in 2023 demonstrates successful execution of global strategy;

Canadian consumer consumption reaches record levels in Q4

Jamieson Wellness Inc. (“Jamieson Wellness” or the “Company”) (TSX: JWEL) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year results for the period ended December 31, 2023. All amounts are expressed in Canadian dollars. Certain metrics, including those expressed on an adjusted basis, are non-IFRS and other financial measures. See “Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures” below.

“2023 was a reflection of success on our strategic journey to become a global vitamin, mineral, and supplement leader,” said Mike Pilato, President and CEO of Jamieson Wellness. “We drove growth across all our major markets and business units while successfully completing our 2022 U.S. acquisition integration and taking ownership of the full value chain in China.

“Today, over 40% of our branded revenue is derived outside of Canada, more than double the percentage it was just three years ago. While we continue to expand our leadership position in our domestic market, the success of this diversification strategy positions us as a very different company, with key growth strategies and investment choices tailored for the unique attributes of key markets, globally.

“We are entering 2024 from a position of strength – strategically, operationally, and financially. To harness the full potential of the evolving needs of engaged consumers and significant industry growth tailwinds, we will continue to prioritize investment in demand generation, innovation, and distribution in all our major markets, while investing aggressively to grow our brands in the U.S. and China, building on the momentum we have coming out of 2023. Looking forward, we are confident in our ability to deliver superior organic growth across all key markets in 2024, while expanding margins within each distinctive business unit and delivering accretive earnings per share in the years ahead.”

Fiscal 2023 Performance Highlights

  • Expanded leadership position in Canada driven by strong dollar and unit consumption growth outpacing the market, despite some customer level inventory burn; consumers continued to interact with the Company’s immune products and increase their purchases across foundational health categories including, sleep, stress and energy
  • Successful implementation of the Company’s growth strategy in the U.S. delivered approximately 17.4% pro forma revenue growth, driven by innovation and category growth, e-commerce expansion, and increased distribution
  • Delivered 45.1% pro forma RMB revenue growth in China as a result of the completion of the Company’s acquisition of its former distributor’s assets and strategic partnership with DCP Capital; established Jamieson’s Chinese headquarters in Shanghai, with a team of more than 45 employees
  • Growth across International markets despite global volatility; consumer consumption trends began a return to historical levels in Eastern Europe
  • Finalized the Company’s annual ESG reporting strategy and implemented a new environmental policy

Fourth Quarter Performance Highlights

  • Record-high consumer consumption and shipments drove increased market share in Canada despite retailer level inventory burn beyond expectation
  • Growth of the youtheory brand in the U.S led by strong demand for existing products, innovation and progress in e-commerce
  • Demand in China was further strengthened in cross border e-commerce with a strong 11/11 promotion window and expanded distribution in brick and mortar retail
  • Revenue growth in International was partially offset by volatility in the Middle East
  • Exited the quarter with a leverage ratio of approximately 2.1x net debt to Adjusted EBITDA with cash and available borrowings of over $200.0 million
  • Completed the Company’s 2023 greenhouse gas inventory report for disclosure in the Company’s first formal Impact Report in Q1 2024

Fourth Quarter Financial Performance Highlights (year-over year, unless otherwise noted)

  • Consolidated revenue increased by 14.3% to $220.4 million driven by 16.0% growth in Jamieson Brands and 7.0% growth in Strategic Partners
  • Gross profit increased $7.8 million to $79.0 million on higher revenues partially offset by the fair value amortization impact of acquisition-related inventories
  • Normalized gross profit margin was 37.1%, or 20 bps lower than last year largely due to sales mix; Gross profit margin3 was 35.9% or 100 bps lower
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 increased by $1.8 million or 3.6% to $50.6 million, reflecting higher gross profit and higher marketing and infrastructure investments to expand the Company’s footprint in China and to support youtheory innovation and channel growth; EBITDA1 increased $5.3 million or 12.9% to $46.5 million
  • Adjusted net earnings1 increased 6.9% to $28.6 million which included the impact of lower interest on reduced average borrowings; Net earnings increased to $24.0 million
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share2 was $0.67; Diluted earnings per share was $0.56
  • Cash from operating activities before working capital considerations of $20.4 million decreased by $8.7 million compared to Q4 2022 mainly due to investments in marketing, IT infrastructure costs and acquisition related costs
  • Cash generated in working capital of $5.7 million was $6.0 million lower than prior year, cash generated was impacted by the timing of vendor and income tax payments made
  • Net debt1 at the end of the quarter was $288.1 million, or 22.9% lower than Q4 2022
  • As at December 31, 2023, the Company had approximately $211.9 million in cash and available borrowings

Jamieson Brands

  • Revenue increased 16.0% or $25.0 million to $181.0 million
    • Jamieson Canada increased 5.8% to $94.3 million, reflecting record consumption levels which outpaced shipments as retailers reduced inventories below typical levels
    • U.S. business (youtheory) was $55.0 million, increasing by 8.7% with growth across all channels driven by continued demand for existing products and successful innovations launched throughout the year
    • Jamieson China was $20.7 million, increasing 151.1% which reflects the seasonal impact of direct sales to consumers under the owned-distribution model beginning April 2023, while pro-forma growth on a local currency basis grew 91.6% driven by strong fourth quarter promotional plans and the successful launch with certain social media platforms through cross border e-commerce
    • Jamieson International was $11.1 million, increasing by 37.0% on a constant U.S. dollar basis, driven largely by growth in Europe
  • Gross profit increased $7.7 million to $73.1 million; normalized gross profit increased by $9.6 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA1 increased $1.6 million to $45.4 million reflecting direct investments in brand growth; Adjusted EBITDA margin2 decreased by 300 bps to 25.1% due to lower gross profit margin as a result of the business unit mix as noted above, and higher SG&A as a percentage of revenue

  • Revenue grew 7.0% to $39.4 million, reflecting timing of shipments and remaining orders on the close-out of a customer account
  • Gross profit increased $0.1 million to $5.9 million; gross profit margin3 decreased by 80 basis points to 15.1%, with production efficiencies and pricing being offset by customer mix

    • Canada: Growth of 4.0% to 7.5%, including consumption growth, lower customer inventories and pricing;
    • U.S. business (youtheory): Growth of between 13% and 20%, building innovation and distribution on strong 2023 double digit growth momentum;
    • China: Growth of between 60% and 80%, building on strong double digit 2023 growth and a strategic decision to rapidly accelerate demand generating and branding building investment behind exceptional recent growth;
    • International: Growth of between 5% and 15% including consumption and expansion to new markets
  • Strategic Partners revenue of between $100.0 and $113.0 million, or 10% to 20% lower, driven by the impact of a 2023 customer transition partially offset by onboarding new opportunities
  • Adjusted EBITDA of between $138.0 to $144.0 million, or growth of up to ~4.5% with Jamieson Brands growth partially offset by a decline in Strategic Partners
  • Adjusted EBITDA margins to decline between 120 and 170 basis points due to increased investment in China and the U.S. to drive accelerated scale and the impact of segment mix

Fiscal 2025 Outlook (year-over-year, unless otherwise noted)

In fiscal 2025, the Company anticipates a return to low double-digit growth with Adjusted EBITDA of between $155.0 and 165.0 million. Profitability in 2025 is expected to be driven by growth in Jamieson Brands and Strategic Partners volumes, manufacturing efficiencies, along with SG&A and marketing investments consistent with Jamieson Brands revenue growth rates.

Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures

This press release makes reference to certain financial measures, including non-IFRS financial measures that are historical, non-IFRS measures that are forward-looking, non-GAAP ratios and supplementary financial measures. Management uses these financial measures for purposes of comparison to prior periods and development of future projections and earnings growth prospects. This information is also used by management to measure the profitability of ongoing operations and in analyzing the Company’s business performance and trends. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company’s results of operations from management’s perspective. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s financial information reported under IFRS. The Company uses the following non‑IFRS financial measures: “EBITDA”, “Adjusted EBITDA” and “Adjusted net earnings”, the most directly comparable financial measure for each that is disclosed in its financial statements being “net earnings”, “normalized gross profit”, “normalized SG&A”, “normalized earnings from operations”, “cash from operating activities before working capital considerations” and “net debt”, the most directly comparable financial measures for each that is disclosed in its financial statements being “gross profit”, “SG&A”, “earnings from operations”, “cash flows from operating activities”, and “long-term debt”, respectively, the following non-IFRS ratios: “Adjusted EBITDA margin”, “Adjusted diluted earnings per share”, “normalized gross profit margin”, “normalized operating margin”, and the following supplementary financial measures: “gross profit margin” and “operating margin” to provide supplemental measures of the Company’s operating performance and thus highlight trends in the Company’s core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. Management also uses non‑IFRS and supplementary financial measures in order to prepare annual operating budgets and to determine components of management compensation. For an explanation of the composition of each such measure and the usefulness and additional uses of each by management, see the “How we Assess the Performance of our Business” section of the 2023 MD&A, which is incorporated by reference. See below for a quantitative reconciliation of each non-IFRS financial measure to its most directly comparable financial measure disclosed in the Company’s financial statements to which the measure relates.

The following tables provide a quantitative reconciliation of net earnings to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted net earnings, as well as gross profit to normalized gross profit, SG&A to normalized SG&A, earnings from operations to normalized earnings from operations, and net debt, each of which are non-IFRS financial measures (see the “Non-IFRS and Other Financial Measures” of this press release for further information on each non-IFRS financial measure) for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023.
