SÃO PAULO, Brazil, Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lavoro Limited (Nasdaq: LVRO; LVROW), the first U.S.-listed pure-play agricultural inputs distributor in Latin America, today announced its financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter, ended on June 30, 2023.

“In recent months, we saw a further worsening in pricing trends in crop protection and fertilizers, as significant global pricing declines were exacerbated by excess channel inventories in Brazil, particularly in herbicides. While we are seeing signs of stabilization of the pricing trends, our expectation is for the retail ag inputs in Brazil to see overall decline of approximately -20% for our fiscal year 2024, led by these pricing headwinds. With that said, our view is that the fundamental long-term secular growth drivers for our Brazil Ag Retail segment have not changed. What we have been witnessing in the past few quarters is simply the normalization of input prices that overshot in ’21-’22 as a result of temporary factors that have now waned, namely the impact of COVID-led plant shutdowns on Chinese agrochemical production, and the effects of the War in Ukraine. We view this as a temporary effect that we expect should not persist beyond the end of this our fiscal year, and should not affect our long-term growth algorithm,” commented Ruy Cunha, CEO of Lavoro.

“Our scale, regional and product diversification, vertical integration with Crop Care, strong balance sheet, M&A capabilities, and ability to invest in technology and new services, sets us apart relative to the rest of industry. We believe we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on the current environment, accelerate our market share gains and improve our financial performance as market conditions normalize,” added Mr. Cunha.

4Q23 Financial Highlights

  • Consolidated revenue increased by 17% to $265.6 million in 4Q23 compared to the same period in 2022, mainly driven by higher input sales from Brazil Ag Retail1, attributable to (i) increased unit volumes of fertilizers, crop protection and specialties, (ii) growth in corn seeds price and volumes, partly offset by (iii) price declines in crop protection and fertilizer product categories. Once again, Latam Ag Retail revenue was affected by the depreciation of the Colombian Peso, with a -3% y/y decline. On a constant-currency basis, Latam grew 10%. Crop Care segment revenue decreased -21% y/y, driven by phasing effects at Union Agro, though gross profit grew 60% driven by strong performance of our biologicals product line. For FY23, Lavoro consolidated revenue increased by 24% to reach $1.8 billion, with Crop Care being a notable contributor as revenue growth exceeded 90%.
  • Gross Profit increased by 27% to $46.9 million in 4Q23, with gross margin expanding by 140bps to 17.6%. This was mainly attributable to (i) positive segment mix shifts, led by Crop Care (ii) improved product mix in our retail distribution, as sales of specialties products as a percentage of Inputs revenue improved by nearly 300bps to 9% in 4Q22, and (iii) strong performance from biologicals, our highest margin product line which grew over 80% versus the prior year quarter. These positive drivers more than offset headwinds from steep price declines in crop protection and fertilizers, which in turn were partially alleviated by a $12 million benefit from planned successful renegotiation with our suppliers. For FY23, gross profit reached $331.9 million, up 34% y/y, with gross margin expanding by 140 bps to 18.5%, owing to both segment and product mix shifts.
  • Adjusted EBITDA in 4Q23 was $2.4 million, improving by $18.7 million y/y, with positive incremental contribution from all three segments. The key drivers are similar to those outlined above for gross profit, with the addition of the benefit of an improved SG&A expense ratio vs. last year. For FY23, Adjusted EBITDA grew 64% to $149.8 million, and Adjusted EBITDA margin rose 200 bps to 8.3%. Crop Care yet again was a strong contributor, with segment Adjusted EBITDA expanding 280% y/y, resulting in Crop Care now accounting for nearly 19% of total Adjusted EBITDA in FY23, a jump from 8% in the previous year.
  • Non-recurring expenses increased by $4.6 million to $6.0 million in 4Q23, due to (i) IPO-related consultancy services expenses throughout fiscal year 2023 recognized as non-recurring in 4Q23 ($3.8 million); (ii) the remainder of a one-time DeSPAC bonus to employees paid in 4Q23 ($0.9 million) and (iii) M&A accounting and tax due diligence expenses ($0.8 million). For FY23, non-recurring items other than our Nasdaq listing expense, increased to $14.3 million, with key drivers being (i) $2.8 million impact from stock-based compensation; (ii) $ 5.8 million of one-time DeSPAC bonus; (iii) $3.8 million from IPO-related consultancy services, and (iv) $5.2 of M&A expenses.
  • Financial costs were $11.1 million higher in 4Q23 vs. the prior year, attributable to losses on fair value of commodity forward contracts, and an increase in the benchmark interest rate in Brazil. On a full fiscal year basis, financial results were $76.9 million higher than the previous year, owing to the same drivers.

1 Our segments herein have been renamed to Brazil Ag Retail (Brazil Cluster), Latam Ag Retail (LatAm Cluster) and Crop Care (Crop Care Cluster), to be clearer with the region and business function they are performing. There is no change to the scope of their operations.

Segment Results for 4Q23 and FY234

Brazil Ag Retail

Segment revenue increased by 45% to $197 million in 4Q23, with strong unit volume growth in crop protection, fertilizer and specialty sales, more than offsetting steep price declines that the industry witnessed over the past few months. Gross margin decreased by 110 bps to 13.3%, owing to these pricing headwinds, partly offset by a previously planned $12 million supplier renegotiation benefit.

Latam Ag Retail

The segment grew 10% on a constant currency basis (Colombian peso), primarily due to strong sales in specialties and corn seeds, partly offset by headwinds resulting from the removal of Paraquat, a financially relevant herbicide, from the product lineup one of our suppliers. The devaluation of the peso was a -13% y/y negative contributor, with revenue declining -3% on a US dollar basis. Gross Margin contracted by 100 bps in 4Q23, reflecting the deflationary pricing trends in crop protection and fertilizers.

Crop Care

Crop Care segment revenue for 4Q23 saw a -21% decline, resulting from the phasing effects at Union Agro, our specialty fertilizer company, which had some sales pull-forward into 3Q23. Biologicals product sales grew over 80% y/y, partly driven from phasing shift from 3Q23 to 4Q23, as a result of postponement of the timing of biopesticide input purchases by farmers. The strong growth in biologicals, which are the highest gross margin products for Lavoro, led the gross margin expansion to 76.4%, from 37.8% a year ago.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release contains certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin. A non-IFRS financial measure is generally defined as a numerical measure of historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flow that purports to measure financial performance but excludes or includes amounts that would not be so adjusted in the most comparable IFRS measure. The Company believes these non-IFRS financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information as they are used by the Company's management to evaluate the Company's performance, and provide additional information about trends in our operating performance prior to considering the impact of capital structure, depreciation, amortization and taxation on our results, as well as the effects of certain items or events that vary widely among similar companies, and therefore may hamper comparability across periods, although these measures are not explicitly defined under IFRS. Management believes that these measures enhance a reader's understanding of the operating and financial performance of the Company and facilitate a better comparison between fiscal periods. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as profit for the period, adjusted for finance income (cost), net, income taxes current and deferred, depreciation and amortization, M&A expenses that in management’s judgment do not necessarily occur on a regular basis, fair value of inventories sold from acquired companies, minus gain on bargain purchases, to provide further meaningful information to evaluate the Company’s performance. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for the period. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is defined as pro forma profit for the period, adjusted for pro forma finance income (costs), net, pro forma income taxes current and deferred, pro forma depreciation and amortization, fair value on inventories sold from acquired companies, and M&A expenses that in management’s judgment do not necessarily occur on a regular basis, minus gain on bargain purchases. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated as Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of pro forma revenue for the period.

The Company does not intend for the non-IFRS financial measures contained in this release to be a substitute for any IFRS financial information. Readers of this press release should use these non-IFRS financial measures only in conjunction with comparable IFRS financial measures. Reconciliations of the non-IFRS financial measures, Adjusted EBITDA, and Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, to their most comparable IFRS measures, are provided in the table below.
