MANAGEMENT COMMENTS

Ambev’s third quarter was marked by the continued V-shaped recovery driven by the company’s commercial strategy coming together as innovation, flexibility and operational excellence gained momentum.

All countries showed sustained volume improvements from second quarter as restrictions were gradually lifted in the markets where we operate, with limited exceptions. Moreover, seven of our top ten markets delivered volume growth year over year.

In the charts below, we separated our countries as per the weight of the off-trade channel in each beer market and the household consumer expenditure[2] to illustrate the status of channel dynamics in our main markets. We also ranked the countries based on beer volumes performance during the third quarter:

Source: Canback, Euromonitor, Nielsen, Internal Sources

 

On a consolidated basis, our organic volumes grew 12% in the quarter, driven by the strong performance of Brazil Beer:

·In Brazil Beer, we considerably outperformed the industry, driven by the successful implementation of our commercial strategy, the adaptability of our pricing calendar and the net positive effect of government subsidies helping to support consumer disposable income, more than offsetting the closing impact of the on-trade, which is still in the process of reopening. Meanwhile, in Brazil NAB, volumes grew in the quarter as we saw a return of consumption occasions.

[2] Household consumer expenditure for each country is indexed at the USA household consumer expenditure, which was set at 100.

·In LAS, flattish volumes were driven by Bolivia and Argentina, with the former being impacted by ongoing severe restrictions imposed by local governments on people circulation, while the latter was more affected by the impacts of COVID-19 in the economy. On the other hand, market share gains in both Paraguay and Chile led to solid volume recovery.
·In CAC, volumes were still impacted by COVID-related restrictions especially in Dominican Republic and Panama, partially holding back the pace of volume recovery in the region. Guatemala, however, showed very strong volume performance thanks to market share gains.
·In Canada, volumes were driven by a compound effect of a positive industry helped by warmer and dryer weather, increased frequency of in-home occasions and the strong performance of our premium and beyond beer portfolio.

The full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our future results remains uncertain, but our actions will be targeted at maintaining momentum toward our V-shape recovery in the top line. The scenario continues to be challenging, but we are confident that we are making the right decisions in the market and that we have a strong position and the right strategy in place to navigate through the challenges that lie ahead.

*      Status of Operations 

As COVID-19 cases reduced, restrictions started to be gradually lifted in most of the countries where we operate. To further support our volume recovery, we have also focused our efforts to continue serving our clients and consumers in the best possible way, leveraging on our digital platforms, which allow us to have multiple touchpoints with our clients.

·In Brazil: through the quarter there was a gradual relaxation of restrictions across the country and the total number of active buyers for both beer and NAB already reached pre-COVID levels. All our production facilities and distribution centers in Brazil are operating.
·In LAS: countries continued to gradually reopen; however, Bolivia is still largely affected by the restrictions on people circulation imposed by the local government. All our production facilities and distribution centers in LAS are operating.
·In CAC: Dominican Republic had a curfew between 9pm and 5am for most of the quarter and in Panama, some municipalities reestablished a ban on all alcohol sales that lasted the whole quarter. All our production facilities and distribution centers in CAC are operating.
·In Canada: through the quarter, bars and restaurants gradually reopened across the country, however the increasing number of cases makes us cautious as we head into 4Q20. Multiple provinces and municipalities in the country have announced new on-premise shutdowns and restrictions for 4Q20. All our breweries in Canada are operating.

 

*      Ambev as an Ecosystem

 

We have continued to contribute to our ecosystem by leveraging our capabilities and competencies to positively impact our stakeholders and the communities in which we operate. Consumers are changing their perception towards our company given the way we approached the pandemic and we see our portfolio in a better shape:

·In Brazil, we announced the donation of 30 million reais for two vaccine plant projects. Bohemia is leading the “Voltadeira” campaign to support bars as they reopen, inviting consumers back by subsidizing 300,000 bottles in partnership with the Iti app. We partnered with Get-in, a startup that developed an app that offers remote reservations and waiting list services, digital menus and digital payments to bars and restaurants. We have also established a partnership with another start up Lemon Energia, aimed at providing cheaper clean energy to more than 50,000 small businesses by 2023. Finally, to raise awareness of the Amazon Rainforest preservation, we launched Colorado Amazônica, a beer made with local ingredients with a price that varies according to the current level of deforestation in the region. The beer has its revenues reverted to Amazonian communities to help preserve the rain forest.
·In LAS, Quilmes - our subsidiary in Argentina - continued to be recognized by both the public and opinion leaders as the company that has made the greatest efforts to face solidarity actions in the areas where our production is located. In the country, we launched Comunal Gin, the first gin made with alcohol from beer, co-created with craft breweries from Bariloche to support the local industry.
·In CAC, with Colmados Seguros in the Dominican Republic and Paisano Seguro in Panama, we have helped POCs guarantee secure spaces for consumers during reopening and also partnered with the on-trade to reinvent socializing by creating new safe alternatives to bring people together.
·In Canada, we continued to support our communities and clients partners through our Stella Artois Rally for Restaurants campaign, aimed at providing financial relief to bars and restaurants.

 

*      Innovation and Business Transformation

 

Innovation is one of the pillars of our business and front and center to our commercial strategy. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to accelerate consumer trends in which we have been investing behind, primarily reinforcing the need for an innovative, consumer-centric mindset. We have a framework of five growth pathways/avenues that drive the way we approach innovation:

 

New flavors & enhanced value proposition

 

·In Brazil Beer, Brahma Duplo Malte continues to be the best example of this part of our innovation strategy, resulting from actively listening to consumer demands. We continued to accelerate the brand with the launch of a proprietary long neck bottle with a pull-off bottle cap. By closely monitoring the market, we still see room for the introduction of another Core Plus brand into our portfolio, and we are piloting other brands in different cities to understand consumers’ preferences and determine which brand to launch. We have recently launched Berrió in the state of Piauí, our fourth regional brand, that is produced with cashew fruit grown by local communities. Nossa, Magnífica and Legítima, continued to deliver strong results with volumes up high double-digits in the quarter.
·In Brazil NAB we have re-launched Fusion as an e-sports energy drink. The product was developed in collaboration with 15 professional gamers and carries functional attributes with three different flavors.
·In LAS, in Bolivia, we have launched Chicha Taquiña, a beer produced with local crops, and introduced the 235ml returnable bottles. In Paraguay, the 1 liter returnable glass bottles led to sustained volume recovery and market share gains. In Argentina, we continued to expand our 340ml returnable bottles across our portfolio. Also in Argentina, we launched Stella Artois Noire, a Dark American Lager, to focus on meal occasions.

·In CAC, in Dominican Republic, we launched Presidente Golden Light, a more refreshing liquid with lower alcohol content.
·In Canada, Bud Light Strawberry Lemonade continues to expand as the fastest growing beer innovation in the country.

 

Convenience for consumers

 

·In Brazil, our direct-to-consumer platform Zé Delivery saw a continued significant acceleration in number of orders in 3Q20, being now present in all 27 Brazilian states.
·In LAS, in Argentina, Appbar continues to grow exponentially, growing almost 5x year to date versus 2019 full year.
·In CAC, in Dominican Republic, Colmapp continued to expand after the merger with the Tucerveza.do website and the Colmapp delivery into a single platform.

 

Innovation in service to our customers

 

·In Brazil, we began to roll-out the BEES B2B platform in order to increase service level to our customers through a 24/7 availability for orders and services. The platform also helps customers to improve sales performance by providing suggestions based on their profile and product relevance.
·In CAC, Dominican Republic continues to expand the BEES platform. The country also serves as our laboratory for the marketplace service. We continue to learn from the early experience about how to manage the different categories within the platform and improve ways of working in order to export know-how as we start rollout BEES to other operations. In the country, more than 75% of net revenues already come from the platform.

 

Health and wellness

 

·In Brazil Beer, we continued to rollout our recently-launched Stella Gluten Free.
·In Brazil NAB, we launched For Me wellness shots, a functional beverage, in a record-breaking sixty days to enter a new category. Do Bem continued to roll-out its portfolio of infused drinks and launched 269ml cans for juice to be sold in premium bars and restaurants. In the quarter, we started the national expansion of Natu, our new version of Guaraná made with 100% natural ingredients. We continue to invest in the reduction of sugar content in our portfolio.
·In LAS, we have launched Quilmes 0,0%, the first alcohol-free beer in Argentina and Patagonia launched Sendero SUR, our first certified organic beer in the country.
·In CAC and Canada, Michelob Ultra has continued to deliver strong results, growing double-digits by leveraging its connection with outdoor sports.

Beyond Beer

 

·In LAS, in Argentina, Dante Robino has grown consistently ahead of our business plan with sales volumes doubling in the quarter versus last year. The company has continued to explore new opportunities within the wine segment, accelerating its canned wine brand Blasfemia.
·In Canada, G&W continues to grow its Nutrl ready-to-drink beverages portfolio and expand the category in the country. The company has also introduced a brand of Whiskey and the wine brand #4LetterWordWine! to its Canadian portfolio.

 

*      Commercial Highlights

 

Premium

 

Our premium brands performance has shown strong signs of recovery in the quarter with global brands overperforming in most markets, leading to Ambev’s total premium portfolio growing double-digits this quarter:

·In Brazil, our premium volume grew double-digits driven by our Global Brands. Domestic brands, which are predominantly sold in the on-trade channel, started to show signs of recovery, but continued to be affected by the restrictions still in place.
·In LAS, in Argentina, Corona grew double-digits contributing to the premium portfolio reach the all-time high mix in July and gaining share in the quarter.
·In CAC, the premium segment grew double-digits, with a positive contribution to the whole portfolio mix. Corona grew double-digits in Guatemala and in Dominican Republic while in Puerto Rico, Michelob Ultra was the highlight, growing double-digits and gaining market share.
·In Canada, our strategy of premiumization delivered another quarter of solid growth, mainly driven by Corona growing double-digits and resuming as the highest brand power in the country.

 

Core & Core Plus

 

The Core Plus segment continues to emerge as a relevant growth opportunity, growing triple digits in the quarter:

·In Brazil, Brahma Duplo Malte continues to lead the growth of the Core Plus segment. Bohemia grew triple digits for another quarter, keeping the strong momentum. The quarter was also marked by the resilience of core brands with Skol gaining share in the North, Northeast and Midwest due to our operational excellence and service level.
·In LAS, in Argentina, Budweiser showed a strong recovery growing double-digits supported by a campaign with Lionel Messi. Andes Origen has overperformed the industry in Argentina for another consecutive quarter, growing double-digits. In Chile, Cusqueña and Budweiser continue to deliver strong results, growing high double-digits and contributing to the above core mix. In Paraguay, we have launched Skol to develop the Core Plus segment.

Third Quarter 2020 Results

October 29, 2020

BEER BRAZIL

The volume performance in this quarter was driven by consistent results from the implementation of our commercial strategy, our ability to adapt to changes in the market and by a growing industry, positively impacted by the government financial aid, which more than offset the partial shutdown of the on-trade. According to our estimates, we considerably outperformed the industry.

Our NR/hl was in line with last year’s despite COVID-19 impact. Positive brand mix and revenue management initiatives were more than offset by channel and geographic mix.

The increase in cash COGS/hl is mostly explained by transactional FX and unfavorable packaging mix, as the weight of aluminum cans in the portfolio continued to grow year over year. On top of that, the unexpected growth of can volumes resulted in additional expenses related to underhedged costs, mainly FX and aluminum.

The cash SG&A increased following the strong volume recovery in the quarter.

NAB BRAZIL

Volume performance was impacted by the recovery of consumption occasions as restrictions were partially lifted throughout the quarter. Our NR/hl continues to be impacted by unfavorable channel, brand and pack mix, as the restrictions imposed on the on-trade channel led to a shift to the off-trade channel as well as to an increased weight of multi-serve packaging versus single serve.

Despite the mix shift, the cash COGS/hl performance was mostly driven by the favorable comparable in the previous year from phasing of tax credits. The cash SG&A decrease in the quarter resulted from the continuous revision of our discretionary expenses.

CENTRAL AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN (CAC)

The volume performance was driven by restrictions adopted to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic in the region. Our NR/hl increased due to the above core mix contribution and the successful implementation of our revenue management initiatives.

Despite the volume decline, CAC managed to deliver a healthy 43.7% EBITDA margin in the quarter driven by the positive brand mix and the disciplined execution of our SG&A savings initiatives.

LATIN AMERICA SOUTH (LAS)[3]

Net revenue increased in LAS as countries gradually recovered across the region. NR/hl increased as a result of our continued revenue management initiatives and inflation in Argentina.

The significant increase in Cash COGS/hl is mainly explained by transactional FX and pack mix, while the cash SG&A growth was mainly driven by the high inflation in Argentina despite effective management of our expenses in the region.

CANADA[4]

Canada volumes grew driven by a positive industry impacted by warmer and dryer weather, increased frequency of in-home occasions and another quarter of market share gains from the strong performance of our premium and beyond beer portfolio and short term industry supply chain disruptions. The NR/hl decrease in Canada was driven by unfavorable channel and pack mix partially offset by brand mix.

Cash COGS/hl increased, impacted by channel and pack mix coupled with transactional FX.

NET FINANCE RESULTS

The net finance results performance is broken down as follows:

·Interest income was R$ 72.8 million, mostly driven by our cash balance, mainly in Brazilian Reais, US dollars and Canadian dollars of 23 million and Selic rate update on Income Tax to Recover/Other legal claims of R$ 20 million. The decline from 3Q19 is almost entirely explained by a gain of approximately R$ 465 million in the context of a tax litigation involving ICMS in the PIS and COFINS tax base
·Interest expenses of R$ 539.3 million, mainly impacted by: (i) fair value adjustments of payables as determined by IFRS 13 (CPC 46) of R$ 150 million, (ii) interest expenses on debts and lease liabilities of R$ 132 million, (iii) fiscal incentives interest accruals of R$ 45 million, (iv) a non-cash accrual of approximately R$ 11 million related to the put option associated with our investment in the Dominican Republic, (v) interest expenses incurred in connection with the Brazilian Tax Regularization Program – PERT of approximately R$ 10 million. Additionally, this quarter we made a reversal of R$ 178 million, also in the context of a tax litigation involving ICMS in the PIS and COFINS tax base.
·Losses on derivative instruments of R$ 562.7 million, mainly explained by (i) FX hedges carry costs linked to our COGS and Capex exposure in Argentina, where carry cost was approximately 50% per year out of a notional of approximately US$550 million, (ii) FX hedges carry costs linked to our COGS and Capex exposure in Brazil, where carry cost was approximately 2% per year out of a notional of approximately US$1.2 billion, and (iii) equity swap mark to market losses of R$ 111 million (57 million shares);
·Losses on non-derivative instruments of R$ 46.2 million, mainly explained by (i) a gain of R$ 168 million of fair value adjustment in connection with the renegotiation of CND put structure, and (ii) losses on balance sheet exposure (intercompany and third-party payables), mostly linked to the Argentinean Peso and the Brazilian Real depreciation of R$ 165 million;
·Taxes on financial transactions of R$ 44.4 million
·Other financial expenses of R$ 118.7 million, mainly explained by letters of credit expenses, accruals on legal contingencies and pension plan expenses and debt issuance fees;
·Non-cash financial income of R$ 93.6 million resulting from the adoption of Hyperinflation Accounting in Argentina, as detailed on page 19.

FINANCIAL REPORTING IN HYPERINFLATIONARY ECONOMIES - ARGENTINA

Following the categorization of Argentina as a country with a three-year cumulative inflation rate greater than 100%, the country is considered highly inflationary in accordance with IFRS.

Consequently, starting from 3Q18, we have been reporting the operations of our Argentinean affiliates applying Hyperinflation Accounting. The IFRS and CPC rules (IAS 29/CPC 42) require the results of our operations in hyperinflationary economies to be reported restating the year to date results adjusting for the change in the general purchasing power of the local currency, using official indices, before converting the local amounts at the closing rate of the period (i.e., September 30, 2020 closing rate for 3Q20 and YTD20 results).

The YTD20 Hyperinflation Accounting adjustment results from the combined effect of (i) the indexation to reflect changes in purchasing power on the YTD20 results against a dedicated line in the finance results, and (ii) the difference between the translation of the YTD20 results at the closing exchange rate of September 30, 2020 and the translation using the average year to date rate on the reported period, as applicable to non-inflationary economies. 3Q20 results under Hyperinflation Accounting are calculated as the difference between reported 9M20 and HY20 results.

The impacts in 3Q19, YTD19, 3Q20 and YTD20 on Net Revenue and Normalized EBITDA were as follows:

Total Impact (168.2) 36.7 (129.3)   110.7
         
BRLARS average rate     11.0709 13.3287
BRLARS closing rate 13.8218 13.5047 13.8218 13.5047
(1)Indexation calculated at each period’s closing exchange rate.
(2)Currency impact calculated as the difference between converting the Argentinean peso (ARS) reported amounts at the closing exchange rate compared to the average exchange rate of each period.

 

Furthermore, IAS 29 requires adjusting non-monetary assets and liabilities on the balance sheet of our operations in hyperinflationary economies for cumulative inflation. The resulting effect from the adjustment until December 31, 2017 was reported in Equity and, the effect from the adjustment from this date on, in a dedicated account in the finance results, reporting deferred taxes on such adjustments, when applicable.

In 3Q20, the transition to Hyperinflation Accounting in accordance with the IFRS rules, resulted in (i) a positive R$ 93.6 million adjustment reported in the finance results; (ii) a negative impact on the Profit of R$ 22.7 million; (iii) a negative impact on the Normalized Profit of R$ 22.0 million; and (iv) a negative impact of R$ 0.01 on EPS, but no material impact on Normalized EPS.

In YTD20, the consequences of the transition were (i) a positive R$ 258.6 million adjustment reported in the finance results; (ii) a negative impact on the Profit of R$ 73.6 million; (iii) a negative impact on the Normalized Profit of R$ 71.8 million; and (iv) a negative impact of R$0.01 on EPS, but no material impact on Normalized EPS.

The 3Q20 results are calculated by deducting from the 9M results the HY results as published. As a consequence, LAS and Consolidated 3Q20 and 3Q19 results are impacted by the adjustment of HY results for the cumulative inflation between June 30 and September 30, as well as by the translation of HY results at the 9M closing exchange rate, of September 30, as follows:

RECONCILIATION BETWEEN NORMALIZED EBITDA & PROFIT

Both Normalized EBITDA and EBIT are measures used by Ambev’s management to measure the Company’s performance.

Normalized EBITDA is calculated excluding from Profit the following effects: (i) Non-controlling interest; (ii) Income Tax expense; (iii) Share of results of associates; (iv) Net finance results; (v) Exceptional items; and (vi) Depreciation & Amortization.

Normalized EBITDA and EBIT are not accounting measures under accounting practices in Brazil, IFRS or the United States of America (US GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to Profit as a measure of operational performance or an alternative to Cash Flow as a measure of liquidity. Normalized EBITDA and EBIT do not have a standard calculation method and Ambev’s definition of Normalized EBITDA and EBIT may not be comparable to that of other companies.

NOTES

This press release segregates the impact of organic changes from those arising from changes in scope or currency translation. Scope changes represent the impact of acquisitions and divestitures, the start up or termination of activities or the transfer of activities between segments, curtailment gains and losses and year-over-year changes in accounting estimates and other assumptions that management does not consider as part of the underlying performance of the business. Organic growth and normalized numbers are presented applying constant year-over-year exchange rates to exclude the impact of the movement of foreign exchange rates.

Unless stated, percentage changes in this press release are both organic and normalized in nature. Whenever used in this document, the term “normalized” refers to performance measures (EBITDA, EBIT, Profit, EPS) before exceptional items adjustments. Exceptional items are either income or expenses which do not occur regularly as part of the normal activities of the Company. They are presented separately because they are important for the understanding of the underlying sustainable performance of the Company due to their size or nature. Normalized measures are additional measures used by management and should not replace the measures determined in accordance with IFRS as indicators of the Company’s performance. Comparisons, unless otherwise stated, refer to the third quarter of 2019 (3Q19). Values in this release may not add up due to rounding.

Statements contained in this press release may contain information that is forward-looking and reflects management’s current view and estimates of future economic circumstances, industry conditions, Company performance, and finance results. Any statements, expectations, capabilities, plans and assumptions contained in this press release that do not describe historical facts, such as statements regarding the declaration or payment of dividends, the direction of future operations, the implementation of principal operating and financing strategies and capital expenditure plans, the factors or trends affecting financial condition, liquidity or results of operations, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. There is no guarantee that these results will actually occur. The statements are based on many assumptions and factors, including general economic and market conditions, industry conditions, and operating factors. Any changes in such assumptions or factors could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations.
