June and July are the Highest Consecutive Production Months in the Company’s History

Announces Americas Oat Base Capacity Expansion to Support an Acceleration in Consumer Demand

Company Provides Full Fiscal Year 2021 Outlook, Anticipates Revenue to Exceed $690 Million

MALMÖ, Sweden, Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oatly Group AB (Nasdaq: OTLY) (“Oatly” or the “Company”), the world’s original and largest oat drink company, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Toni Petersson, Oatly’s CEO, commented, “2021 represents the most transformational year in our Company’s history with the completion of our successful IPO in May, which has provided us with the capital to fuel new production capacity globally as we scale our business across three continents to meet the robust consumer demand for our leading oat-based brand. We are incredibly proud of our global team’s execution with strong growth in new and existing customers, the opening of two new facilities in Ogden, Utah and Singapore, as well as doubling production capacity at our facility in Vlissingen, Netherlands.”

Petersson continued, “Our record second quarter revenues were in-line with our expectations and demonstrate broad-based growth across geographies and sales channels, despite certain COVID-19 and start-up related manufacturing headwinds we experienced in the quarter. We’re continually expanding global production capacity to support our long-term growth and launching key partnerships and distribution agreements with prominent customers globally. We’re excited about the addition of our second manufacturing facility in Asia, which remains on-track to open in the second half of 2021, providing a second new source of local production to the region. Our new and existing production capacity gives us confidence in our ability to achieve an accelerated revenue growth rate in the second half of this year, while also extending our core values and mission for a more sustainable food system.”

Successful Initial Public Offering
On May 24, 2021, the Company completed its initial public offering, in which it sold 64,688,000 American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”), each representing one ordinary share, and the selling shareholders sold an aggregate of 32,344,400 ADSs, including 12,656,400 ADSs sold by the selling shareholders pursuant to the underwriters’ over-allotment option. The ADSs began trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on May 20, 2021. The ADSs were sold at an initial public offering price of $17.00 per share for net proceeds to the Company of approximately $1,037.3 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $52.2 million and offering expenses of $10.1 million payable by the Company. The Company continues to expect to use the net proceeds from the IPO for working capital, to fund incremental growth, including planned capacity expansion, and other general corporate purposes. On June 30, 2021, subsequent to the IPO, there were 599,901,777 fully diluted ordinary shares outstanding.

Second Quarter 2021 Results
Revenue increased $50.8 million, or 53.3%, to $146.2 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, compared to $95.3 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020. The revenue increase was primarily driven by additional supply coming from the Company’s existing production facilities and, to a lesser extent, the Company’s new facilities, to meet the growing global demand for its products. This growth was partially offset by COVID-19 and start-up related manufacturing delays which impacted sales by approximately $12 to $14 million in the second quarter of 2021. Produced finished goods volume for the second quarter of 2021 amounted to 106 million liters compared to 74 million liters for the same period last year, an increase of 43.2%. As expected there was a benefit to revenue from foreign exchange, the benefit was approximately $10.2 million.

The Company experienced broad-based growth across retail and foodservice channels in the second quarter of 2021. The foodservice channel contribution increased in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year period with the continued reopening of on-premise outlets upon the lifting of certain COVID-19 restrictions in the Company’s key markets. In the second quarter of 2020, the retail channel experienced a significant increase in sales, more than offsetting the decline in the foodservice sales channel, which was primarily noticeable in the Americas as a result of COVID-19-related restrictions. Second quarter of 2021 and 2020, the foodservice channel accounted for 33.2% and 21.6% of the Company’s revenue, respectively, and the retail channel accounted for 61.5% and 74.5% of the Company’s revenue, respectively.

Gross profit was $38.6 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $30.8 million for the second quarter of 2020. Gross profit margin decreased 590 basis points to 26.4% for the second quarter of 2021 compared to 32.3% in the same period last year. The gross margin decline in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the prior year period was primarily due to higher logistics expenses in EMEA and the Americas as well as higher container rates for shipments from EMEA to Asia, a change in regional, channel and customer mix, a higher share of co-packing production and minor negative effect from foreign exchange.

Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2021 increased $2.6 million to $4.0 million compared to $1.3 million in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2021 increased $49.8 million to $83.1 million compared to $33.3 million in the prior year period. The increase in expenses was primarily due to an increase of $22.3 million in employee related expenses, which include $4.0 million in non-cash costs for the Company’s Long-Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”) due to increased headcount as the Company continues to invest in its growth and added headcount associated with being a public company. The Company also incurred $12.5 million in increased costs relating to external consultants, contractors, and other professional fees due to the growth of the business and costs associated with being a public company, of which $7.1 million were non-recurring costs related to the Company’s initial public offering, and $5.3 million were a result of increased branding and marketing expenses as compared to lower branding and marketing activities in the prior year second quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As noted above, SG&A included non-recurring costs related to the Company’s initial public offering and non-cash LTIP charge for a combined total of $11.1 million. Customer distribution costs increased with $4.7 million mainly due to higher revenue.

Other operating income for second quarter of 2021 included a net foreign exchange gain of $0.3 million compared to other operating expense in the second quarter of 2022 that included a net foreign exchange loss of $0.5 million.

Net loss attributable to shareholders of the parent was $59.1 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to net loss of $4.8 million in the prior year period.

Second quarter of 2021 EBITDA loss was $43.5 million, compared to a loss of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020. The increase in EBITDA loss was primarily a result of non-recurring IPO charges of $7.1 million, share-based compensation costs of $6.6 million including social security-related expenses of $2.1 million, higher employee related expenses, public company costs and other operating expenses as the Company scales its global operations to support growth across three continents. These costs were partially offset by higher gross profit.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the second quarter of 2021 was $31.9 million, compared to a loss of $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA loss was primarily related to higher employee expenses, public company costs and other operating expenses as the Company scales its global operations to support growth across three continents. These costs were partially offset by higher gross profit.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (Loss) are non-IFRS financial measures defined under “Non-IFRS financial measures.” Please see “Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Results” at the end of this press release.

* Corporate consists of general overhead costs not allocated to the segments.
** Eliminations refer to intersegment revenue for sales of products from EMEA and Americas to Asia.

EMEA
EMEA revenue increased $18.8 million, or 31.6%, to $78.5 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $59.7 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher production compared to the same period prior year, with growth in foodservice and retail channels across oatdrink, oatgurt and other food product offerings, partially offset by lower fill rates due to the robust consumer demand and continued capacity constraints. As expected there was a benefit to revenue from foreign exchange, the benefit was approximately $8.4 million.

EMEA EBITDA decreased $2.8 million to $6.0 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $8.8 million in the prior year period. This decrease in EBITDA was primarily due to higher operating expenses as the Company scales its operations for future growth. Included in EBITDA is a new recurring share-based compensation expense of $0.7 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $6.7 million compared to $8.8 million in the prior year period.

Americas
Americas revenue increased $16.3 million, or 65.0%, to $41.3 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $25.1 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher production compared to the same period prior year with growth in both new and existing foodservice and retail channels across oatdrink, oatgurt and frozen product offerings, partially offset by lower fill rates due to the robust consumer demand and continued capacity constraints.

Americas EBITDA loss increased $8.0 million to a loss of $9.8 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to a loss of $1.8 million in the prior year period. The increase in EBITDA loss was primarily due to higher operating expenses as the Company scales its operations for future growth as well as new recurring share-based compensation expense of $0.6 million. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $9.2 million compared to a loss of $1.8 million in the prior year period.

Asia
Asia revenue increased $15.7 million, or 148.6%, to $26.3 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $10.6 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher production compared to the same period prior year with growth in both new and existing foodservice and e-commerce channels as well as in the retail channels across oatdrink offerings, partially offset continued capacity constraints. As expected there was a benefit to revenue from foreign exchange, the benefit was approximately $1.8 million.

Asia EBITDA loss increased $4.2 million to a loss of $4.4 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to a loss of $0.2 million in the prior year period. The increase in EBITDA loss was primarily due to higher operating expenses as the Company scales its operations for future growth as well as new recurring share-based compensation expense of $0.8 million. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $3.6 million compared to a loss of $0.2 million in the prior year period.

Corporate Expense
Oatly’s corporate expense, which consists of general overhead costs not allocated to the segments, in the second quarter of 2021 was $35.2 million, an increase of $27.2 million compared to the prior year period. This increase was driven by continued investments in organization, including IT operations, to support the Company’s growth and transition to being a public company as well as new recurring share-based compensation expense of $2.3 million and non-recurring IPO expenses of $7.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $25.8 million compared to a loss of $8.0 million in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow
As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $524.2 million, $322.7 million in short term investments and total outstanding debt to credit institutions of $7.0 million. Net cash used in operating activities was $72.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $20.1 million during the prior year period. Capital expenditures were $134.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to $52.0 million in the prior year period. Cash flow from financing activities was $960.9 million reflecting the proceeds from the IPO net of repayments of liabilities to credit institutions and repayment of the shareholder loan. The Company invested a portion of the IPO proceeds in short-term investments as noted above.

Americas Self-Manufacturing Capacity Expansion
The Company also announced today in a separate press release an increase in oat base capacity at its Ogden, Utah facility in the Americas region to support an acceleration in consumer demand. In the second half of 2021 the Company will start construction to add 75 million liters of finished goods equivalent oat base capacity. Total production will increase from an estimated 150 million liters annually at full production to an estimated 225 million liters annually to support the Company’s growth in 2022 and beyond. This will increase the Company’s total estimated capacity by the end of 2022 from 1,000 million to 1,075 million liters and from 1,400 million to 1,475 million liters of finished goods equivalent oat base capacity by the end of 2023. The Company expects its EMEA manufacturing combined with its two facilities in the Americas and two in Asia to create more than a 200% increase in its production output by the end of 2022 from the end of 2020. The Company will execute this capacity expansion within its stated plan for capital expenditures provided at the time of the IPO.

Outlook
For fiscal year 2021, the Company expects:

Revenue to exceed $690 million, an increase of greater than 64% compared to fiscal year 2020 with accelerating growth across regions. This revenue outlook assumes very nominal contribution from the Company’s Maanashan, China facility that is on-track to open later this year. Any upside to the Company’s outlook will be a result of its ability to ramp production at a faster rate than anticipated. Assuming no significant changes from foreign exchange rates today, the Company expects the second half of 2021 exchange rates to be a single digit tailwind on a percentage basis compared to the second half of 2020.
Capital expenditures at the low end of between $350 million and $400 million as previously communicated at the time of its IPO, including the new Ogden, Utah self-manufacturing capacity expansion announced today
Production capacity to be approximately 600 million liters of finished goods at the end of the year

Long-term, the Company expects:

To generate gross margin of greater than 40% and EBITDA margin approaching 20% - as it benefits from a much larger self-manufacturing footprint globally, greater economies of scale and continued strong revenue growth

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with IFRS. We define Adjusted EBITDA as loss for the period attributable to shareholders of the parent adjusted to exclude, when applicable, income tax expense, finance expenses, finance income, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense and non-recurring expenses related to the IPO.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to loss for the period or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA rather than loss for the period attributable to shareholders of the parent, which is the most directly comparable IFRS measure. Some of these limitations are:

Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future increasing our cash requirements;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash required to service our debt, which reduces cash available to us;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that reduce cash available to us;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect share-based compensation expenses and, therefore, does not include all of our compensation costs;
Non-recurring expenses related to the IPO; and
Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with IFRS. Below we have provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to loss attributable to shareholders of the parent, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS, for the period presented.
