Cott Corporation

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements

Unaudited

Note 1Business and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Description of Business

Cott Corporation, together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“Cott,” “the Company,” “our Company,” “Cott Corporation,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), is one of the world’s largest producers of beverages on behalf of retailers, brand owners and distributors. Our product lines include carbonated soft drinks (“CSDs”), 100% shelf stable juice and juice-based products, clear, still and sparkling flavored waters, energy drinks and shots, sports products, new age beverages, ready-to-drink teas, beverage concentrates, liquid enhancers, freezables and ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages, as well as hot chocolate, coffee, malt drinks, creamers/whiteners and cereals.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying interim unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X and in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all information and notes presented in the annual consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair statement of our results of operations for the interim periods reported and of our financial condition as of the date of the interim balance sheet have been included. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the annual audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2013. The accounting policies used in these interim consolidated financial statements are consistent with those used in the annual consolidated financial statements.

The presentation of these interim consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes.

During the six months ended June 28, 2014, we recorded out-of-period adjustments which decreased net income by approximately $0.7 million, which related to 2013 and were primarily associated with fixed assets and accrued liabilities. We evaluated the total out-of-period adjustments in relation to the current period, which is when the adjustments were recorded, as well as the period in which they originated and concluded these adjustments are not material to either the consolidated quarterly or annual financial statements for all impacted periods.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Update ASU 2013-11—Income Taxes (Topic 740): Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists

In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) amended its guidance regarding the information provided in relation to the financial statement presentation of an unrecognized tax benefit when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists. An unrecognized tax benefit, or a portion of an unrecognized tax benefit, should be presented in the financial statements as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward. To the extent a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward is not available at the reporting date under the tax law of the applicable jurisdiction to settle any additional income taxes that would result from the disallowance of a tax position or the tax law of the applicable jurisdiction does not require the entity to use, and the entity does not intend to use, the deferred tax asset for such purpose, the unrecognized tax benefit should be presented in the financial statements as a liability and should not be combined with deferred tax assets. The assessment of whether a deferred tax asset is available is based on the unrecognized tax benefit and deferred tax asset that exist at the reporting date and should be made presuming disallowance of the tax position at the reporting date. For public entities, the amendments are effective prospectively for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. We have adopted this guidance and incorporated it into the presentation of our consolidated financial statements.

Update ASU 2014-09—Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)

In May 2014, the FASB amended its guidance regarding revenue recognition and created a new Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The objectives for creating Topic 606 were to remove inconsistencies and weaknesses in revenue recognition, provide a more robust framework for addressing revenue issues, provide more useful information to users of the financial statements through improved disclosure requirements, simplify the preparation of financial statements by reducing the number of requirements to which an entity must refer, and improve comparability of revenue recognition

practices across entities, industries, jurisdictions and capital markets. The core principal of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. To achieve the core principle, an entity should apply the following steps: 1) identify the contract(s) with a customer; 2) identify the performance obligations in the contract; 3) determine the transaction price; 4) allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and 5) recognize revenue when (or as) the entity satisfies a performance obligation. For public entities, the amendments are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. The amendments may be applied retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the amendment recognized at the date of initial application. We are currently assessing the impact of adoption of this standard on our consolidated financial statements.

Update ASU 2014-12—Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period

In June 2014, the FASB amended its guidance regarding accounting for share-based payments when the terms of an award provide that a performance target could be achieved after the requisite service period. The amendments require that a performance target that affects vesting and that could be achieved after the requisite service period be treated as a performance condition. A reporting entity should apply existing guidance in Topic 718 as it relates to awards with performance conditions that affect vesting to account for such awards. As such, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant-date fair value of the award. Compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. If the performance target becomes probable of being achieved before the end of the requisite service period, the remaining unrecognized compensation cost should be recognized prospectively over the remaining requisite service period. The total amount of compensation cost recognized during and after the requisite service period should reflect the number of awards that are expected to vest and should be adjusted to reflect those awards that ultimately vest. The requisite service period ends when the employee can cease rendering service and still be eligible to vest in the award if the performance target is achieved. The stated vesting period (which includes the period in which the performance target could be achieved) may differ from the requisite service period. For public entities, the amendments are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015, including interim periods within that reporting period. The amendments may be applied prospectively to all awards granted or modified after the effective date or retrospectively to all awards with performance targets that are outstanding as of the beginning of the earliest annual period presented in the financial statements and to all new or modified awards thereafter. We believe that the adoption of these amendments will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Note 2Acquisitions

Aimia Acquisition

On May 30, 2014 (the “Acquisition Date”), our United Kingdom (“U.K.”) reporting segment acquired 100 percent of the share capital of Aimia Foods (Holdings) Limited (the “Aimia Acquisition”), which includes its operating subsidiary company, Aimia Foods Limited (together referred as “Aimia”) pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated May 30, 2014. Aimia produces and distributes hot chocolate, coffee and cold cereal products primarily through food service, vending and retail channels. The aggregate purchase price for the Aimia Acquisition was £52.1 million ($87.6 million) payable in cash, which included a payment for estimated closing balance sheet working capital, £19.9 million ($33.5 million) in deferred consideration to be paid by September 30, 2014, and aggregate contingent consideration of up to £16.0 million ($26.9 million), which is payable upon the achievement of certain performance measures during the twelve months ending July 1, 2016 (the “Earn Out Period”).

The total consideration paid by us for the Aimia Acquisition, subject to final working capital adjustments, is summarized below:

Table of Contents

Our primary reasons for the Aimia Acquisition were to diversify Cott’s product portfolio, packaging formats and channel mix, and enhance our customer offering and growth prospects.

The Aimia Acquisition is being accounted for as a business combination which, among other things, requires that assets acquired and liabilities assumed be measured at their acquisition date fair values. Identified intangible assets, goodwill and property, plant and equipment are recorded at their estimated fair values per preliminary valuations and may change based on the final valuations. The results of operations of Aimia have been included in our operating results beginning as of the Acquisition Date. We allocated the total purchase price exchanged for Aimia to tangible assets, liabilities and identifiable intangible assets acquired based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the purchase price over the aggregate fair values was recorded as goodwill. The fair value assigned to identifiable intangible assets acquired was based on estimates and assumptions made by management. Intangible assets are amortized using a method that reflects the pattern in which economic benefits of the intangible asset are consumed using a straight-line amortization method.

The sellers are entitled to contingent consideration of up to a maximum of £16.0 million ($26.9 million), based on the exchange rate on the Acquisition Date, which will be due by us if Aimia meets certain targets relating to net income plus interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) for the twelve months ending July 1, 2016. We estimated the fair value of the contingent consideration based on financial projections of the acquired business and estimated probabilities of achievement of the EBITDA targets. We believe that our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, but there is significant judgment involved. Changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities subsequent to the acquisition will be recorded in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. The fair value of the contingent consideration was determined to be £10.6 million ($17.9 million) using a present valued probability-weighted income approach. Key assumptions include probability-adjusted EBITDA amounts with discount rates consistent with the level of risk of achievement.

The following table summarizes the estimated allocation of the purchase price to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in connection with the Aimia Acquisition. The allocation of the purchase price is based on a preliminary valuation that is expected to be completed by the end of 2014. Any adjustment may affect the total purchase price and amount of goodwill.

The Company recognized $1.8 million of acquisition related costs associated with the Aimia Acquisition that were expensed during the three and six month period ended June 28, 2014. These costs are included in the selling, general, and administrative expenses of our Consolidated Statements of Operations in accordance with ASC 805, “Business Combinations.”

Intangible Assets

In our preliminary determination of the fair value of the intangible assets, we considered, among other factors, the best use of acquired assets, analysis of historical financial performance and estimates of future performance of Aimia’s products. The estimated fair values of identified intangible assets were calculated considering market participant expectations and using an income approach and estimates and assumptions provided by Aimia’s and our management. The following table sets forth the components of identified intangible assets associated with the Aimia Acquisition and their estimated weighted average useful lives:

     2.9         5 years   
  

 

 

    

Total

   $ 80.9      
  

 

 

    

Customer relationships represent future projected revenue that will be derived from sales to existing customers of Aimia.

Trademarks and trade names represent the future projected cost savings associated with the premium and brand image obtained as a result of owning the trademark or trade name as opposed to obtaining the benefit of the trademark or trade name through a royalty or rental fee.

In conjunction with the closing of the Aimia Acquisition, certain key employees of Aimia executed non-competition agreements, which prevent those employees from competing with us in the specified restricted territories for a period of time from the Acquisition Date. The value of the Aimia business could be materially diminished without these noncompetition agreements.

Goodwill

The principal factor that resulted in recognition of goodwill was that the purchase price for the Aimia Acquisition was based in part on cash flow projections assuming the reduction of administration costs and the integration of acquired customers and products into our operations, which is of greater value than on a standalone basis. The goodwill recognized as part of the Aimia Acquisition was allocated to the U.K. reporting segment, none of which is expected to be tax deductible.

Calypso Acquisition

In June 2013, our U.K. reporting segment acquired 100 percent of the share capital of Cooke Bros. Holdings Limited (the “Calypso Acquisition”), which includes its subsidiary companies Calypso Soft Drinks Limited and Mr. Freeze (Europe) Limited (together, “Calypso”). Calypso produces fruit juices, juice drinks, soft drinks, and freeze products in the United Kingdom. The aggregate purchase price for the acquisition of Calypso was $12.1 million, which includes approximately $7.0 million paid at closing, a deferred payment of approximately $2.3 million paid on the first anniversary of the closing date, and a deferred payment of approximately $3.0 million to be paid on the second anniversary of the closing date. In connection with the Calypso Acquisition, we paid $18.5 million of outstanding debt of the acquired companies. The closing payment and the first deferred payment were funded from available cash.

The total consideration paid by us in the Calypso Acquisition is summarized below:

On August 17, 2010, we completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets and liabilities of Cliffstar Corporation (“Cliffstar”) and its affiliated companies (the “Cliffstar Acquisition”) for approximately $503.0 million in cash, $14.0 million in deferred consideration payable in equal installments over three years and contingent consideration of up to $55.0 million. Contingent consideration of $34.9 million was ultimately paid to the seller of Cliffstar, and all claims for contingent consideration have been resolved as of December 28, 2013.

Note 3—Restructuring and Asset Impairments

We implement restructuring programs from time to time that are designed to improve operating effectiveness and lower costs. When we implement these programs, we incur various charges, including severance, asset impairments, and other employment related costs. During the first quarter of 2014, we implemented one such program, which involved the closure of two of our smaller plants, one located in North America and another one located in the United Kingdom (the “2014 Restructuring Plan”). The plant closures are expected to be completed by the end of our 2014 fiscal year and will result in cash charges associated with employee redundancy costs and relocation of assets, and non-cash charges related to asset impairments and accelerated depreciation on property, plant and equipment. In connection with the 2014 Restructuring Plan, we expect to incur total charges of approximately $5.0 million to $6.0 million. We also implemented a plan in June 2013, which consisted primarily of headcount reductions.

The following table summarizes restructuring charges for the three and six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013, respectively:

On February 14, 2013, our board of directors adopted an amendment and restatement of the 2010 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Amended and Restated Equity Plan”), pursuant to which the 2010 Equity Incentive Plan was amended and restated to, among other things, increase the number of shares that may be issued under the plan to 12,000,000 shares and to provide that the number of shares available for issuance will be reduced 2.0 shares for each share issued pursuant to a “full-value” award (i.e., an award other than an option or stock appreciation right) after the effective date of the amendment and restatement. The Amended and Restated Equity Plan was approved by Cott’s shareowners on April 30, 2013. Awards made in 2011 and 2012 prior to the amendment and restatement are generally governed by the 2010 Equity Incentive Plan without giving effect to these restrictions.

Certain outstanding stock options were granted under the Option Plan. Our board of directors terminated the Option Plan as of February 23, 2011, and no further awards will be granted under it. In connection with the termination of the Option Plan, outstanding options will continue in accordance with the terms of the Option Plan until exercised, forfeited or terminated, as applicable.

Note 5Income Taxes

Income tax expense was $1.6 million on pre-tax loss of $5.5 million for the six months ended June 28, 2014, as compared to an income tax expense of $2.2 million on pre-tax income of $21.3 million for the six months ended June 29, 2013. This is the result of pre-tax income in certain jurisdictions that is not offset by pre-tax losses in other jurisdictions that have valuation allowances.

Note 6Net (Loss) Income Per Common Share

Basic net (loss) income per common share is computed by dividing net (loss) income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per common share is calculated using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding adjusted to include the effect, if dilutive, of the exercise of in-the-money stock options, Performance-based RSUs and Time-based RSUs. Diluted net loss per common share is equivalent to basic net loss per common share.

A reconciliation of the denominators of the basic and diluted net income per common share computations is as follows:

At June 28, 2014, we excluded 832,951 (June 29, 2013—442,131) stock options from the computation of diluted net (loss) income per share because the options’ exercise price was greater than the average market price of the common shares.

In addition, we excluded the impact of the remaining stock options, Performance-based RSU’s and Time-based RSUs from the computation of diluted net loss per share for the three and six months ended June 28, 2014 as they were considered anti-dilutive for purposes of calculating loss per share.

Note 7Segment Reporting

Our product lines include CSDs, 100% shelf stable juice and juice-based products, clear, still and sparkling flavored waters, energy drinks and shots, sports products, new age beverages, ready-to-drink teas, beverage concentrates, liquid enhancers, freezables and ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages, as well as hot chocolate, coffee, malt drinks, creamers/whiteners and cereal. Our business operates through three reporting segments—North America (which includes our U.S. operating segment and Canada operating segment), U.K. (which includes our United Kingdom operating segment and our Continental European operating segment), and All Other (which includes our Mexico operating segment, our Royal Crown International (“RCI”) operating segment and other Miscellaneous Expenses). Our corporate oversight function (“Corporate”) is not treated as a segment; it includes certain general and administrative costs that are not allocated to any of the reporting segments. The primary measures used in evaluating our reporting segments are revenues, operating income (loss), and additions to property, plant and equipment, which have been included as part of our segment disclosures listed below. During the fourth quarter of 2013, management reviewed our reporting segments and subsequently combined our Mexico and RCI reporting segments with the segment previously classified as All Other into one segment classified as All Other. Prior year information has been updated to reflect the change in our reporting segments.

For the six months ended June 28, 2014, sales to Walmart accounted for 27.0% (June 29, 2013—30.7%) of our total revenue, 33.3% of our North America reporting segment revenue (June 29, 2013—36.1%), 13.3% of our U.K. reporting segment revenue (June 29, 2013—14.8%) and 2.2% of our All Other reporting segment revenue (June 29, 2013—5.4%).

Credit risk arises from the potential default of a customer in meeting its financial obligations to us. Concentrations of credit exposure may arise with a group of customers that have similar economic characteristics or that are located in the same geographic region. The ability of such customers to meet obligations would be similarly affected by changing economic, political or other conditions. We are not currently aware of any facts that would create a material credit risk.

Revenues are attributed to operating segments based on the location of the customer. Revenues by operating segment were as follows:

Asset-Based Lending Facility

On March 31, 2008, we entered into a credit agreement with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as Agent that created an asset-based lending credit facility (the “ABL facility”) to provide financing for our North America, U.K. and Mexico operations. In connection with the Cliffstar Acquisition, we refinanced the ABL facility on August 17, 2010 to, among other things, provide for the Cliffstar Acquisition, the issuance of $375.0 million of 8.125% senior notes that are due on September 1, 2018 (the “2018 Notes”) and the application of net proceeds therefrom, the underwritten public offering of 13,340,000 common shares at a price of $5.67 per share and the application of net proceeds therefrom and to increase the amount available for borrowings to $275.0 million. We drew down a portion of the indebtedness under the ABL facility in order to fund the Cliffstar Acquisition. We incurred $5.4 million of financing fees in connection with the refinancing of the ABL facility.

On July 19, 2012, we amended the ABL facility to, among other things, extend the maturity date to July 19, 2017. We incurred $1.2 million of financing fees in connection with the amendment of the ABL facility.

On October 22, 2013, we amended the ABL facility to, among other things, (1) provide for an increase in the lenders’ commitments under the ABL facility to $300.0 million, as well as to increase the accordion feature, which permits us to increase the lenders’ commitments under the ABL facility to $350.0 million, subject to certain conditions, (2) extend the maturity date to October 22, 2018, and (3) provide for greater flexibility under certain covenants. We incurred approximately $0.7 million of financing fees in connection with the amendment of the ABL facility.

On May 28, 2014, we amended the ABL facility to increase our ability to incur certain unsecured debt and earnout consideration for permitted acquisitions, as well as to allow us to add additional borrowers and to designate additional guarantors to be included in the borrowing base calculation. We incurred approximately $0.2 million of financing fees in connection with the amendment of the ABL facility. These costs are included in the selling, general, and administrative expenses of our Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The financing fees incurred in connection with the refinancing of the ABL facility on August 17, 2010, along with the financing fees incurred in connection with the amendments of the ABL facility, other than the amendment on May 28, 2014, are being amortized using the straight-line method over the duration of the amended ABL facility. Each of the amendments, with the exception of the amendment on May 28, 2014, was considered to be a modification of the original agreement under GAAP.

As of June 28, 2014, we had $35.8 million of outstanding borrowings under the ABL facility. The commitment fee was 0.375% per annum of the unused commitment, which, taking into account $6.9 million of letters of credit, was $251.8 million as of June 28, 2014.

5.375% Senior Notes due in 2022

On June 24, 2014, we issued $525.0 million of the 5.375% senior notes due 2022 (the “2022 Notes”) to qualified purchasers in a private placement under Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933. The issuer of the 2022 Notes is our wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary Cott Beverages Inc., and we and most of our U.S., Canadian and United Kingdom subsidiaries guarantee the 2022 Notes. The interest on the 2022 Notes is payable semi-annually on January 1st and July 1st of each year commencing on January 1, 2015.

We incurred $9.7 million of financing fees in connection with the issuance of the 2022 Notes. The financing fees are being amortized using the effective interest method over an eight-year period, which represents the term to maturity of the 2022 Notes.

8.125% Senior Notes due in 2018

On August 17, 2010, we issued the 2018 Notes. The issuer of the 2018 Notes is our wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary Cott Beverages Inc., and we and most of our U.S., Canadian and United Kingdom subsidiaries guarantee the 2018 Notes. The interest on the 2018 Notes is payable semi-annually on March 1st and September 1st of each year. We incurred $8.6 million of financing fees in connection with the issuance of the 2018 Notes.

On June 24, 2014, we used a portion of the proceeds from our issuance of the 2022 Notes to purchase $295.9 million aggregate principal amount of our 2018 Notes in a cash tender offer. The tender offer included approximately $16.2 million in premium payments as well as accrued interest of $7.5 million and approximately $3.2 million in deferred financing fees and other costs.

On July 9, 2014 and July 24, 2014, we redeemed all of the remaining $79.1 million aggregate principal amount of our 2018 Notes. The redemption included approximately $3.8 million in premium payments as well as accrued interest of approximately $2.5 million and approximately $0.8 million in deferred financing fees.

8.375% Senior Notes due in 2017

On November 13, 2009, we issued $215.0 million of the 8.375% senior notes due 2017 (the “2017 Notes”). The 2017 Notes were issued at a $3.1 million discount. The issuer of the 2017 Notes was our wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary Cott Beverages Inc., and we and most of our U.S., Canadian and United Kingdom subsidiaries guaranteed the 2017 Notes. The interest on the 2017 Notes was payable semi-annually on May 15th and November 15th of each year. We incurred $5.1 million of financing fees in connection with the 2017 Notes.

On November 15, 2013, we redeemed $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of our 2017 Notes at 104.118% of par. The redemption included approximately $8.2 million in premium payments as well as approximately $4.5 million in deferred financing fees, discount charges and other bond redemption costs.

On February 19, 2014, we redeemed all of the remaining $15.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 2017 Notes at 104.118% of par. The redemption included approximately $0.6 million in premium payments as well as approximately $0.3 million in deferred financing fees and discount charges.

GE Term Loan

In January 2008, we entered into a capital lease finance arrangement with General Electric Capital Corporation (“GE Capital”) for the lease of equipment. In September 2013, we purchased the equipment subject to the lease for an aggregate purchase price of $10.7 million, with the financing for such purchase provided by GE Capital at 5.23% interest.

Note 12Commitments and Contingencies

We are subject to various claims and legal proceedings with respect to matters such as governmental regulations, and other actions arising out of the normal course of business. Management believes that the resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flow.

In June 2013, we completed the Calypso Acquisition, which included a deferred payment of approximately $2.3 million paid on the first anniversary of the closing date, and a deferred payment of approximately $3.0 million to be paid on the second anniversary of the closing date.

We had $6.9 million in standby letters of credit outstanding as of June 28, 2014 (June 29, 2013—$11.5 million).

In March 2014, we had a favorable legal settlement in the amount of $3.5 million, of which $3.0 million was collected in April 2014 and the remaining $0.5 million is due in January 2015.

In May 2014, we completed the Aimia Acquisition, which included deferred consideration of £19.9 million ($33.5 million) to be paid by September 30, 2014 and aggregate contingent consideration of up to £16.0 million ($26.9 million), which is payable upon achievement of certain performance measures during the twelve months ending July 1, 2016.

Note 13Share Repurchase Program

On May 6, 2014, our board of directors approved the renewal of our share repurchase program for up to 5% of Cott’s outstanding common shares over a 12-month period commencing upon the expiration of Cott’s then-effective share repurchase program on May 21, 2014. During the second quarter ended June 28, 2014, we repurchased 366,670 common shares for approximately $2.6 million through open market transactions. We are unable to predict the number of shares that ultimately will be repurchased under the share repurchase program, or the aggregate dollar amount of the shares actually purchased. We may discontinue purchases at any time, subject to compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. Shares purchased under the share repurchase program are cancelled.

Note 14Hedging Transactions and Derivative Financial Instruments

We are directly and indirectly affected by changes in foreign currency market conditions. These changes in market conditions may adversely impact our financial performance and are referred to as market risks. When deemed appropriate by management, we use derivatives as a risk management tool to mitigate the potential impact of certain market risks.

We use various types of derivative instruments including, but not limited to, forward contracts and swap agreements for certain commodities. Forward contracts are agreements to buy or sell a quantity of a currency at a predetermined future date, and at a predetermined rate or price. A swap agreement is a contract between two parties to exchange cash flows based on specified underlying notional amounts, assets and/or indices. We do not enter into derivative financial instruments for trading purposes.

All derivatives are carried at fair value in the Consolidated Balance Sheets in the line item other receivables or other payables. The carrying values of the derivatives reflect the impact of legally enforceable agreements with the same counterparties. These allow us to net settle positive and negative positions (assets and liabilities) arising from different transactions with the same counterparty.

The accounting for gains and losses that result from changes in the fair values of derivative instruments depends on whether the derivatives have been designated and qualify as hedging instruments and the types of hedging relationships. Derivatives can be designated as fair value hedges, cash flow hedges or hedges of net investments in foreign operations. The changes in the fair values of derivatives that have been designated and qualify for fair value hedge accounting are recorded in the same line item in our Consolidated Statements of Operations as the changes in the fair value of the hedged items attributable to the risk being hedged. The changes in fair values of derivatives that have been designated and qualify as cash flow hedges are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) (“AOCI”) and are reclassified into the line item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations in which the hedged items are recorded in the same period the hedged items affect earnings. Due to the high degree of effectiveness between the hedging instruments and the underlying exposures being hedged, fluctuations in the value of the derivative instruments are generally offset by changes in the fair values or cash flows of the underlying exposures being hedged. The changes in fair values of derivatives that were not designated and/or did not qualify as hedging instruments are immediately recognized into earnings.

 

23


Table of Contents

For derivatives that will be accounted for as hedging instruments, we formally designate and document, at inception, the financial instrument as a hedge of a specific underlying exposure, the risk management objective and the strategy for undertaking the hedge transaction. In addition, we formally assess both at the inception and at least quarterly thereafter, whether the financial instruments used in hedging transactions are effective at offsetting changes in either the fair values or cash flows of the related underlying exposures. Any ineffective portion of a financial instrument’s change in fair value is immediately recognized into earnings. Ineffectiveness was not material for all periods presented.

We estimate the fair values of our derivatives based on quoted market prices or pricing models using current market rates (refer to Note 15). The notional amounts of the derivative financial instruments do not necessarily represent amounts exchanged by the parties and, therefore, are not a direct measure of our exposure to the financial risks described above. The amounts exchanged are calculated by reference to the notional amounts and by other terms of the derivatives, such as interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates or other financial indices. We do not view the fair values of our derivatives in isolation, but rather in relation to the fair values or cash flows of the underlying hedged transactions or other exposures. All of our derivatives are straight-forward over-the-counter instruments with liquid markets.

Credit Risk Associated with Derivatives

We have established strict counterparty credit guidelines and enter into transactions only with financial institutions of investment grade or better. We monitor counterparty exposures regularly and review any downgrade in credit rating immediately. We mitigate pre-settlement risk by being permitted to net settle for transactions with the same counterparty. To minimize the concentration of credit risk, we enter into derivative transactions with a portfolio of financial institutions. Based on these factors, we consider the risk of the counterparty default to be minimal.

Cash Flow Hedging Strategy

We use cash flow hedges to minimize the variability in cash flows of assets or liabilities or forecasted transactions caused by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices. The changes in fair values of hedges that are determined to be ineffective are immediately reclassified from AOCI into earnings. We did not discontinue any cash flow hedging relationships during the six months ended June 28, 2014 or June 29, 2013, respectively. These foreign exchange contracts typically have maturities of less than eighteen months.

We maintain a foreign currency cash flow hedging program to reduce the risk that our procurement activities will be adversely affected by changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We enter into forward contracts to hedge certain portions of forecasted cash flows denominated in foreign currencies. The total notional values of derivatives that were designated and qualify for our foreign currency cash flow hedging program were $3.8 million and $3.6 million as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively.

We have entered into commodity swaps on aluminum to mitigate the price risk associated with forecasted purchases of materials used in our manufacturing process. These derivative instruments have been designated and qualify as a part of our commodity cash flow hedging program. The objective of this hedging program is to reduce the variability of cash flows associated with future purchases of aluminum. The total notional values of derivatives that were designated and qualified for our commodity cash flow hedging program were $29.9 million and nil as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively.

The fair value of the Company’s derivative assets was $0.6 million and $0.3 million as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively. The fair value of the Company’s derivative liabilities was $0.2 million and nil as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively.

The settlement of our derivative instruments resulted in a credit to cost of sales of approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million for the three and six months ended June 28, 2014, respectively, compared to a credit to cost of sales of approximately $0.3 million and $0.4 million for the comparable prior year periods.

Note 15Fair Value Measurements

Accounting Standards Codification No. 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, the inputs used to measure fair value are prioritized based on a three-level hierarchy. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:

 

    Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

    Level 2—Observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

 

    Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities. This includes certain pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies and similar techniques that use significant unobservable inputs.

We have certain assets and liabilities such as our derivative instruments that are required to be recorded at fair value on a recurring basis in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The fair value of our derivative instruments represents a Level 2 instrument. Level 2 instruments are valued based on observable inputs for quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets. The fair value for the derivative assets as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013 was $0.6 million and $0.3 million, respectively. The fair value for the derivative liabilities as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013 was $0.2 million and nil, respectively.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts reflected in the Consolidated Balance Sheets for cash and cash equivalents, receivables, payables, short-term borrowings and long-term debt approximate their respective fair values, except as otherwise indicated. The carrying values and estimated fair values of our significant outstanding debt as of June 28, 2014 and December 28, 2013 were as follows:

Note 16Guarantor Subsidiaries

The 2022 Notes issued by our 100% owned subsidiary, Cott Beverages Inc., are, and the 2017 Notes and 2018 Notes prior to their retirement were, guaranteed on a senior basis pursuant to guarantees by Cott Corporation and certain other 100% owned direct and indirect subsidiaries (the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). Cott Beverages Inc. and each Guarantor Subsidiary is 100% owned by Cott Corporation. The guarantees of the 2017 Notes, 2018 Notes and 2022 Notes by Cott Corporation and the Guarantor Subsidiaries are full and unconditional, and all such guarantees are joint and several. The guarantees of the Guarantor Subsidiaries are subject to release in limited circumstances only upon the occurrence of certain customary conditions.

Table of Contents

We have not presented separate financial statements and separate disclosures have not been provided concerning Guarantor Subsidiaries due to the presentation of condensed consolidating financial information set forth in this Note, consistent with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) interpretations governing reporting of subsidiary financial information.

The following supplemental financial information sets forth on an unconsolidated basis, our Balance Sheets, Statements of Operations and Cash Flows for Cott Corporation, Cott Beverages Inc., Guarantor Subsidiaries and our other subsidiaries (the “Non-guarantor Subsidiaries”). The supplemental financial information reflects our investments and those of Cott Beverages Inc. in their respective subsidiaries using the equity method of accounting.

We reclassified certain intercompany dividends and advances to affiliates previously reported in the Condensed Consolidating Statement of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 29, 2013 included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The intercompany dividends represented transactions between Cott Corporation, Cott Beverages, Inc., the Guarantors and Non-Guarantors and the cash flows related to these transactions should have been classified as financing activities. The advances to affiliates represented activity between Cott Corporation and Non-Guarantors that should not have impacted the Condensed Consolidating Statement of Cash Flow because they represented non-cash charges. These reclassifications do not change the total cash flows reported in each column presented in the Condensed Consolidating Statement of Cash Flows. We assessed the materiality of these items on our previously issued annual report and quarterly financial statements in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 99, and concluded that the errors were not material to the consolidated financial statements taken as a whole. The statements of cash flows presented below for the three and six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013 as revised, reflect the correct classification of these items.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

This Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is intended to further the reader’s understanding of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations of our Company. It should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q and our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 28, 2013 (the “2013 Annual Report”). These historical financial statements may not be indicative of our future performance. This discussion contains a number of forward-looking statements, all of which are based on our current expectations and could be affected by the uncertainties and risks referred to under “Risk Factors” in Item 1A in our 2013 Annual Report and in Item 1A in this report.

Overview

We are one of the world’s largest producers of beverages on behalf of retailers, brand owners and distributors. We market or supply over 500 retail, licensed and Company-owned brands in the United States, the United Kingdom/Europe, Canada and Mexico. Our product lines include carbonated soft drinks (“CSDs”), 100% shelf stable juice and juice-based products, clear, still and sparkling flavored waters, energy drinks and shots, sports products, new age beverages, ready-to-drink teas, beverage concentrates, liquid enhancers, freezables and ready-to-drink alcoholic beverages, as well as hot chocolate, coffee, malt drinks, creamers/whiteners and cereals.

The beverage market is subject to some seasonal variations. Our beverage sales are generally higher during the warmer months and also can be influenced by the timing of holidays and weather fluctuations. Our purchases of raw materials and related accounts payable fluctuate based upon the demand for our products as well as the timing of the fruit growing seasons. The seasonality of our sales volume combined with the seasonal nature of fruit growing causes our working capital needs to fluctuate throughout the year, with inventory levels increasing in the first half of the year in order to meet high summer demand, and with fruit inventories peaking during the last quarter of the year when purchases are made after the growing season. In addition, our accounts receivable balances decline in the fall as customers pay their higher-than-average outstanding balances from the summer deliveries.

We typically operate at low margins and therefore relatively small changes in cost structures can materially affect results.

Ingredient and packaging costs represent a significant portion of our cost of sales. These costs are subject to global and regional commodity price trends. Our most significant commodities are aluminum, polyethylene terephthalate (“PET”) resin, corn, sugar, fruit and fruit concentrates. We attempt to manage our exposure to fluctuations in ingredient and packaging costs by entering into fixed price commitments for a portion of our ingredient and packaging requirements and implementing price increases as needed.

We supply Walmart and its affiliated companies, under annual non-exclusive supply agreements, with a variety of products in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Mexico, including CSDs, 100% shelf stable juice and juice-based products, clear, still and sparkling flavored waters, energy drinks, sports products, new age beverages, and ready-to-drink teas. During the first six months of 2014, we supplied Walmart with all of its private-label CSDs in the United States. In the event Walmart were to utilize additional suppliers to fulfill a portion of its requirements for CSDs, our operating results could be materially adversely affected. Sales to Walmart for the six months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013 accounted for 27.0% and 30.7% of total revenue for those periods, respectively.

On May 30, 2014 (the “Acquisition Date”), our United Kingdom (“U.K.”) reporting segment acquired 100 percent of the share capital of Aimia Foods (Holdings) Limited (the “Aimia Acquisition”), which includes its operating subsidiary company, Aimia Foods Limited (together referred as “Aimia”) pursuant to a Share Purchase Agreement dated May 30, 2014. Aimia produces and distributes hot chocolate, coffee and cold cereal products primarily through food service, vending and retail channels. The aggregate purchase price for the Aimia Acquisition was £52.1 million ($87.6 million) payable in cash, which included a payment for estimated closing balance sheet working capital, £19.9 million ($33.5 million) in deferred consideration to be paid by September 30, 2014, and aggregate contingent consideration of up to £16.0 million ($26.9 million), which is payable upon the achievement of certain performance measures during the twelve months ending July 1, 2016 (the “Earn Out Period”).

With the Aimia Acquisition, we have further diversified our product portfolio to include food and beverage products that are typically measured for consumption on an individual serving size basis rather than in the 8 oz. equivalent measurement that we have used historically to report our volumes. As a result, we have determined to report our volumes on an individual serving size basis by converting our volume into servings based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines for single-serving sizes of our products. Previously reported volumes in prior periods have been adjusted to conform to this new measurement standard. This change had no impact on previously reported amounts in our consolidated financial statements.

In June 2013, our U.K. reporting segment acquired 100 percent of the share capital of Cooke Bros. Holdings Limited (the “Calypso Acquisition”), which includes the subsidiary companies Calypso Soft Drinks Limited and Mr. Freeze (Europe) Limited (together, “Calypso”). Calypso produces fruit juices, juice drinks, soft drinks, and freeze products in the United Kingdom. The aggregate purchase price for the acquisition of Calypso was $12.1 million, which includes approximately $7.0 million paid at closing, a deferred payment of approximately $2.3 million paid on the first anniversary of the closing date, and a deferred payment of approximately $3.0 million to be paid on the second anniversary of the closing date. The closing payment and first deferred payment were funded from available cash.

In 2010, we completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets and liabilities of Cliffstar Corporation (“Cliffstar”) and its affiliated companies (the “Cliffstar Acquisition”) for approximately $503.0 million in cash, $14.0 million in deferred consideration payable in equal installments over three years and contingent consideration of up to $55.0 million. Contingent consideration of $34.9 million was ultimately paid to the seller of Cliffstar, and all claims for contingent consideration have been resolved.
