Gross profit increased 13% to $300 million compared to $265 million. Gross margin grew by 160 basis points to 56.9% compared to 55.3%, driven by pricing actions, Water Direct volume growth and the exit of single-use retail bottled water business in North America, partially offset by foreign exchange headwinds.

 

SG&A expenses increased 12% to $278 million compared to $248 million. The increase was driven by higher selling and operating costs supporting the volume and revenue growth of the business as well as general inflationary cost increases.

 

Reported net loss and net loss per diluted share were $7 million and $0.04, respectively, compared to reported net loss and net loss per diluted share of $10 million and $0.06, respectively. Adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share were $14 million and $0.09, respectively, compared to adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share of $9 million and $0.06, respectively.

 

Adjusted EBITDA increased 15% to $88 million compared to $76 million. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased by 80 basis points to 16.7%, driven primarily by pricing actions, increased demand for products and services across our customer base and the exit of single-use retail bottled water business in North America.

 

Net cash provided by operating activities of $24 million, less $41 million of capital expenditures and additions to intangible assets, resulted in ($17) million of free cash flow, or ($13) million of adjusted free cash flow (adjusting for the items set forth on Exhibit 7), compared to adjusted free cash flow of $6 million in the prior year.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement its reporting of financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), Primo utilizes certain non-GAAP financial measures. Primo excludes from GAAP revenue the impact of foreign exchange and the impact of the small-format single-use retail bottled water business in North America to separate the impact of these items from Primo’s results of operations. Primo also utilizes Adjusted net income (loss), Adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin to separate the impact of certain items from the underlying business. Because Primo uses these adjusted financial results in the management of its business, management believes this supplemental information is useful to investors for their independent evaluation and understanding of Primo’s underlying business performance and the performance of its management. Additionally, Primo supplements its reporting of net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations determined in accordance with GAAP by excluding additions to property, plant and equipment and additions to intangible assets to present free cash flow, and by excluding the items identified on the exhibits hereto to present adjusted free cash flow, which management believes provides useful information to investors in assessing our performance, comparing Primo’s performance to the performance of the Company’s peer group and assessing the Company’s ability to service debt and finance strategic opportunities, which include investing in Primo’s business, making strategic acquisitions, paying dividends, and strengthening the balance sheet. With respect to the Company’s expectations of its future performance, the Company’s reconciliations of Q2 2022 and full year 2022 Adjusted EBITDA and 2024 Adjusted EBITDA are not available, as the Company is unable to quantify certain amounts to the degree of precision that would be required in the relevant GAAP measures without unreasonable effort. These items include taxes, interest costs that would occur if the Company issued debt, and costs to acquire and or sell a business if the Company executed such transactions, which could significantly affect our financial results. These items depend on highly variable factors and any such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors. Primo expects the variability of these factors to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on the Company’s future GAAP financial results. The non-GAAP financial measures described above are in addition to, and not meant to be considered superior to, or a substitute for, Primo’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings announcement reflect management's judgment of particular items, and may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

 

Safe Harbor Statements
