Second Quarter 2022 Results

Net sales for the second quarter of 2022 were $1.22 billion, an increase of 2% compared to the second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP organic net sales growth, which adjusts for changes in foreign exchange and the impact of mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity, was 5% year-over-year, reflecting positive end-market growth and continued market share gains in North America (9% year-over-year), including continued strong demand for prescription management, partially offset by more modest trends in both APAC & Emerging Markets (2% year-over-year) and Europe (-1% year-over-year).
Net loss attributable to Covetrus in the second quarter of 2022 was $(4) million, or a loss of $(0.03) per diluted share, which compared to net loss attributable to Covetrus of $(31) million, or $(0.23) per diluted share in the prior year period. The improvement in net loss was driven primarily by a $12 million decrease in income taxes year-over-year, a $9 million increase in gross profit year-over-year, a $4 million decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses year-over-year and a $2 million decrease in net interest expense year-over-year.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $66 million for the second quarter of 2022 versus $66 million in the prior year period. 7% year-over-year growth in North America, including healthy year-over-year contribution from prescription management, and flat Corporate expenses year-over-year were fully offset by a $2 million negative impact from the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar and continued challenges in certain markets within Europe. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin was 5.4% for the second quarter of 2022, a decrease of 20 basis points year-over-year.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to Covetrus was $36 million for the second quarter of 2022, which compared to $35 million in the prior year period, driven by the same factors impacting non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA discussed above and a decrease in net interest expense year-over-year.

First Half 2022 Results

Net sales for the first half of 2022 were $2.37 billion, an increase of 3% compared to the first half of 2021. Non-GAAP organic net sales growth, which adjusts for changes in foreign exchange and the impact of mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity, was 6% year-over-year, reflecting healthy growth in North America (9% year-over-year), including continued strong demand in prescription management, partially offset by more modest growth trends in both APAC & Emerging Markets (3% year-over-year) and Europe (flat year-over-year).
Net loss attributable to Covetrus in the first half of 2022 was $(6) million, or a loss of $(0.04) per diluted share, which compared to net loss attributable to Covetrus of $(47) million, or $(0.34) per diluted share in the prior year period. The improvement in net loss was driven primarily by a $24 million increase in gross profit year-over-year, a $13 million decrease in income taxes year-over-year and a $4 million net decrease in interest expense year-over-year, which more than offset a $2 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses year-over-year.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $129 million for the first half of 2022 versus $123 million in the prior year period. The 5% year-over-year increase reflects 8% growth in North America, including strong performance in prescription management, and a $4 million decline in Corporate expenses, which more than offset a $4 million negative impact from the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar and continued

challenges in certain markets within Europe. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin was 5.5% for the first half of 2022, an increase of 10 basis points year-over-year.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to Covetrus was $70 million for the first half of 2022, which compared to $64 million in the prior year period, driven by the same factors impacting non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA discussed above and a decrease in net interest expense year-over-year.

Second Quarter 2022 Segment Financial Highlights

The Company’s operations are organized and reported by geography -- North America, Europe, and APAC & Emerging Markets.

North America

North America segment net sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 of $783 million increased 10% compared to the same period of the prior year. On a non-GAAP organic basis, which adjusts for changes in foreign exchange and the impact of mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity, net sales increased 9% compared to the same period of the prior year, reflecting end-market demand, ongoing supply chain market share gains and continued growth in prescription management.

North America segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $63 million, an increase of 7% compared to the same period of the prior year, reflecting continued growth in prescription management profitability. North America segment adjusted EBITDA margin was 8.0% for the second quarter of 2022, down 30 basis points year-over-year.

Europe

Europe segment net sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 of $327 million decreased (11)% compared to the same period of the prior year. On a non-GAAP organic basis, which adjusts for changes in foreign exchange and the impact of mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity, net sales decreased (1)% compared to the same period of the prior year. Growth in the Company's businesses in Netherlands, Poland, Ireland, and Romania were more than offset by a decline in net sales in the U.K. and in Germany.

Europe segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $17 million, a decrease of (15)% compared to the same period of the prior year. This includes a $2 million negative impact from the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar and lower profitability in the Company's proprietary brands business, which more than offset a combined $1 million year-over-year improvement in U.K./Germany profitability following recent cost actions. Europe segment adjusted EBITDA margin was 5.2% for the second quarter of 2022, a decrease of 30 basis points year-over-year.

APAC & Emerging Markets

APAC & Emerging Markets segment net sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 of $109 million, a decrease of $(5) million compared to the same period of the prior year. On a non-GAAP organic basis, which adjusts for changes in foreign exchange and the impact of mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activity, net sales increased 2% compared to the same period of the prior year, reflecting organic growth in Australia that more than offset declines in Brazil and New Zealand during the quarter.

Exhibit 99.1


APAC & Emerging Markets segment adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 of $8 million decreased (11)% compared to the same period of the prior year, including the unfavorable impact from the strengthening U.S. Dollar. APAC & Emerging Markets segment adjusted EBITDA margin was 7.3% for the second quarter of 2022, a decrease of 60 basis points year-over-year.

Financial Position and Liquidity

Covetrus used $(6) million of net cash from operating activities during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $60 million of cash generation during the prior year period. Free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as cash flow from operating activities less purchases of property, equipment and software, was $(21) million during the quarter ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $47 million in the prior year period. The $(68) million year-over-year decline in non-GAAP free cash flow primarily reflects negative movements in net working capital as well as a $2 million increase in capital expenditures year-over-year.

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had $87 million in cash and cash equivalents, $1.05 billion in term loan debt, and no borrowings outstanding on its $300 million revolving credit facility. The Company ended the second quarter with $385 million in liquidity, comprised of cash and cash equivalents and availability under the Company's revolving credit facility, and was in compliance with the covenants in its credit agreement as of June 30, 2022.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA

The Company provides adjusted EBITDA by segment as a supplemental measure to GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA by segment is among the primary metrics by which management evaluates the performance of the business. Adjusted EBITDA by segment has certain limitations in that it does not take into account the impact of certain expenses to our consolidated statements of operations, including the impact of share-based compensation, strategic consulting, transaction costs, formation of Covetrus expenses, separation programs and executive severance, certain IT infrastructure expenses necessary to establish ourselves as a newly public company, goodwill impairment charges, capital structure-related fees, equity method investment and non-consolidated affiliates, operating lease right-of-use asset impairments, the proportionate share of the adjustments to EBITDA of consolidated and non-consolidated affiliates where Covetrus ownership is less than 100%, managed exits from businesses we are exiting or closing, and other items, net. The Company does not allocate to its segments expenses managed at the corporate level, such as corporate wages and related benefits, corporate occupancy costs, professional services utilized at the corporate level, and non-recurring expenses. Other companies may not define or calculate adjusted EBITDA by segment in the same way; as a result, adjusted EBITDA by segment may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial information presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company is providing certain non-GAAP financial measures (discussed below). Management uses these measures in the management of our business and believes that they are useful to investors in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends.

The following tables reconcile non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Covetrus management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful additional information to investors and management

regarding Covetrus’ results of operations as they provide another measure of Covetrus’ profitability and ability to service its debt, and are considered important to financial analysts covering Covetrus’ industry.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytic tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income or any other measure of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Covetrus’ non-GAAP measures may be calculated differently than similarly named measures reported by other companies. In addition, using non-GAAP measures may have limited value as they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on reported financial results and cash flows. When analyzing Covetrus’ performance, it is important to evaluate each adjustment in the reconciliation tables and use adjusted measures in addition to, and not as an alternative to, GAAP measures.

Non-GAAP Organic Net Sales Growth and Segment Organic Net Sales (Unaudited)

Covetrus delivers products, software and technology-enabled services across the globe through three reportable segments: North America, Europe, and APAC & Emerging Markets.

Organic net sales growth is a non-GAAP measure that Covetrus uses to evaluate period-over-period financial performance. The Company believes this non-GAAP financial metric provides useful information to investors and management about the Company's operating results, enhances the overall understanding of past financial performance and future prospects and is a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons. Organic net sales growth excludes the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations, M&A and divestitures, which can impact year-over-year comparisons.

The following table summarize non-GAAP organic net sales growth for Covetrus and each reportable segment:

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income are non-GAAP financial measures used to: (i) aid management and investors with year-over-year comparability, (ii) determine management performance under the Company’s compensation plans, (iii) plan and forecast, (iv) communicate the Company’s financial performance to its board of directors, shareholders, and investment analysts, and (v) understand the Company’s operating performance without regard to items we do not consider a component of the Company’s core ongoing operating performance. Such measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information provided in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA adjustments include share-based compensation, strategic consulting, transaction costs, formation of Covetrus expenses, separation programs and executive severance, certain IT infrastructure expenses necessary to establish ourselves as a newly public company, goodwill impairment charges, capital structure-related fees, other impairments, the proportionate share of the adjustments of consolidated and non-consolidated affiliates where Covetrus ownership is less than 100%, and other income and expense items, net. Non-GAAP adjusted net income adjustments include the adjustments listed above along with amortization of intangible assets, and the tax effect of pretax items excluded from adjusted net income attributable to Covetrus is computed using a statutory tax rate after taking into account the impact of permanent differences and valuation allowances.

A reconciliation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income to net income (loss) attributable to Covetrus, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is as follows:

Share-based compensation - Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense.
Strategic consulting - Related to third-party consulting services. Included within this line item are variable performance fees earned for services rendered under a third-party consulting agreement.
Transaction costs - Includes legal, accounting, tax, and other professional fees incurred in connection with contemplated and completed acquisitions and divestitures. The completion of acquisitions and divestitures is often dependent on factors that may be outside of our control and unrelated to us or to the continuing operations of the acquired or divested business. In addition, the amount of acquisition-related cost is generally driven by the complexity inherent in the transaction and may not necessarily indicate the future costs of the acquired business. Excluding transaction-related costs allows for a better comparison of our historical performance. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we incurred $6 million and $7 million, respectively, related to pending acquisition of the Company by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and TPG.
Formation of Covetrus - Includes professional and consulting fees, duplicative costs associated with transition service agreements, and other costs incurred in connection with the separation from Former Parent and establishing Covetrus as an independent public company.
Equity method investment and non-consolidated affiliates - Includes the proportionate share of the adjustments to EBITDA of consolidated and non-consolidated affiliates where Covetrus ownership is less than 100%.
Other impairments - Includes customer relationships intangible impairments as the asset groups were not recoverable due a significant reduction in cash flows.
