Krispy Kreme Reports Robust Third Quarter 2021 Results, with Strong Momentum into Q4
Company Reaffirms Full Year 2021 Guidance and Long-Term Outlook
2022 Expected to Exceed Long-Term Outlook

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 9, 2021) – Krispy Kreme, Inc. (NASDAQ: DNUT) (“Krispy Kreme” or the “Company”) today reported strong financial results for the third quarter ended October 3, 2021 with net revenue growing 18% year-over-year. Organic growth, excluding the now fully exited legacy wholesale business, was 14% year-over-year and 22% on a two-year basis. Including the exited business, organic growth was 6% year-over-year, in line with company expectations after lapping a strong third quarter in 2020.

Growth was driven by the performance and expansion of Krispy Kreme’s signature capital-efficient hub and spoke operating model. Global Points of Access, which reflect all locations where fresh doughnuts and cookies can be purchased, have grown 46% year-over-year, providing customers access to Krispy Kreme in more than 10,000 locations around the world. International Sales per Hub have grown 31% in the quarter year-over-year while U.S. and Canada Sales per Hub have grown 15%. In addition, ecommerce represented 17% of global retail sales in the third quarter.

Adjusted diluted Earnings Per Share was $0.06 in line with our expectations while GAAP diluted Loss Per Share which included IPO and acquisition related expenses was ($0.04). Adjusted EBITDA grew 10% in the quarter, driven by the strength and efficiency of the Company’s fresh doughnut hub and spoke operating model. The economies of scale from adding over 3,000 Global Points of Access in the last 12 months, as well as a successful price increase in September, are already helping to offset wage and commodity inflation, with more of an impact of the price increase to come in the fourth quarter.

Net debt decreased 40% to $681 million from the end of the second quarter as a result of proceeds from the IPO and positive free cash flow generated during the third quarter. Current net leverage is now 3.7x. Including the impact of acquiring the Krispy Kreme Canada franchise operations in the fourth quarter, the company expects net leverage to be under 3.0x in the next 12 months.

Commenting on the performance, CEO Mike Tattersfield stated, “Our third quarter results demonstrate the benefits of our omni-channel and global expansion strategy, which allow us to meet consumer demand with premium, fresh doughnuts, in a capital- efficient manner. We are seeing positive momentum continue into the seasonally strong fourth quarter, as consumers sought out our sweet treats throughout October for Halloween and are expected to do so through the holidays. In addition, our pricing power means that we are able to quickly adapt to this inflationary environment with the full impact of the pricing action we have already taken still to come in the fourth quarter.”

Third Quarter Consolidated Results

Krispy Kreme’s third quarter results showcased strong growth compared to 2019 and 2020. Total company organic revenue grew 6.2% in the quarter, and 14.3% on a two-year stack basis against 2019. Organic revenue growth was driven by our International segment, which delivered results that were stronger than prior to the pandemic, as well as the expansion of our Delivered Fresh Daily (“DFD”) network in the U.S. and Canada business, which is highlighted by weekly average sales per door growing more than 50% higher compared to the prior year. Total Company organic revenue growth, excluding the exit of our legacy wholesale business, grew 14.1% and was up 22.2% on a two-year stack basis with high growth from both the U.S. and Canada and International segments.

Adjusted EBITDA grew 9.6% to $41.4 million, with a 12.1% Adjusted EBITDA margin, as a result of strength in our International segment and economies of scale gained as we continue to grow our DFD doors globally. Adjusted Net Income grew 7.1% to $12.6 million in the quarter. We saw a GAAP net loss of $3.8 million, but net income would have been positive excluding IPO and acquisition related expenses in the quarter. GAAP diluted loss per share was ($0.04) for the third quarter of 2021, with Adjusted Diluted EPS decreasing to $0.06 from $0.08 in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of increased share count following the IPO. Weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter of 2021 increased to 166 million, compared to 125 million in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of the IPO, with an additional 2 million of dilutive shares included when calculating Adjusted Diluted EPS, for a total of 168 million shares.

Net debt decreased from $1,133 million in the second quarter to $681 million in the third quarter due to IPO proceeds and $11 million of positive free cash flow generated in the quarter.





Third Quarter Market Segment Results

U.S. and Canada: In the U.S. and Canada segment, GAAP net revenue grew 11.5% to $225.8 million from $202.6 million the previous year, driven by the continued execution of our omni-channel strategy. Organic revenue declined 2.3% as we lapped the pipeline fill of the Branded Sweet Treat launch in the third quarter of 2020 and the now fully discontinued legacy wholesale business. Excluding the impact of exiting the legacy wholesale business, U.S. and Canada organic growth was 8.9%, with a two-year stack of 27.7% when compared to 2019. Growth was driven by the expansion of both DFD points of access and higher DFD sales per door as well as ecommerce sales which accounted for 16.8% of retail sales in the quarter. Over 150 DFD doors were added in the third quarter despite nationwide driver shortages with additional listings at leading national retailers in several key markets around the country including Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. A record 2,100 Krispy Kremers were hired in the quarter, despite the tight labor market. According to Nielsen, consumer demand for Krispy Kreme Branded Sweet Treats also remained very strong with a 33% increase in scan sales in the third quarter compared to the second quarter of 2021. However, production shortages resulted in fulfillment shortfalls in the quarter impacting net revenue. Branded Sweet Treats production capacity has now increased with the commission of three new production lines.

U.S. and Canada Adjusted EBITDA of $19.9 million remained relatively consistent with the prior year with the efficiency benefits of DFD to the hub and spoke model being offset by short term supply challenges on Branded Sweet Treats as well as commodity cost pressures following the expiration of some forward contracts. Price increases were implemented on fresh doughnuts during September to manage these cost pressures, as well as the growing impact of wage inflation in the marketplace.

International: In the International segment, GAAP net revenue grew 37.4% to $87.3 million from $63.5 million the previous year, with organic growth of 29.1%. Organic growth in the quarter was driven by successful limited time offerings, substantial expansion of DFD, and lapping a previous period which was negatively impacted by COVID-19. Our businesses in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Mexico in particular saw strong organic growth during the third quarter, with a greater number of points of access and higher ecommerce sales than prior to the pandemic. Our businesses in Australia and New Zealand also contributed to organic growth even with significantly heavier impacts from COVID-19 restrictions there, including temporary shop closures.

International Adjusted EBITDA grew 43.4% to $21.7 million from $15.1 million the previous year, driven primarily by revenue growth from expansion of points of access and some recovery from COVID-19 restrictions, which led to $8.6 million sales per hub over the trailing twelve months driving efficiencies from our hub and spoke model.

Market Development: In the Market Development segment, GAAP net revenue grew 23.1% to $29.7 million from $24.2 million the previous year, with organic growth of 18.1%. GAAP net revenue growth was driven mainly by the acquisition of Krispy Kreme Japan in the fourth quarter of 2020, while organic growth was primarily driven by continued improvement in market conditions for international franchise locations as COVID-19 restrictions in certain key markets continued to ease.

Market Development Adjusted EBITDA declined 3.6% to $9.0 million from $9.4 million the previous year, driven by the impact of U.S. and Canada franchise acquisitions over the last year, but partially offset by strengthening of the international franchise business as evidenced by the organic growth.

Balance Sheet

As of October 3, 2021, we had $44.9 million of cash and cash equivalents, $700.0 million of bank debt and $25.5 million of other debt-like items, for a total net debt of $680.6 million. This compared to $1,132.7 million at the end of the second quarter 2021. Using a trailing four quarters Adjusted EBITDA of $181.9 million, current net leverage is 3.7x, which is substantially below pre-IPO levels. Excluding IPO related expenses net leverage would have been 3.6x. Free cash flow in the third quarter was positive with the EBITDA generated from operating activities in excess of capital expenditures reflecting the capital efficient hub and spoke growth model. Operating cash flow was $41.9 million of which the Company invested $30.6 million primarily in growth-oriented capital, including in the U.S. to make the transition from our now exited legacy wholesale model to our Hub and Spoke strategy, which is now largely complete.

With the acquisition of the Krispy Kreme Canadian franchisee in the fourth quarter of 2021, we now expect total net leverage to be under 3.0x in the next 12 months. Our long-term net leverage policy is 2.0x.
