Overview

Soren Schroder, Bunge's Chief Executive Officer stated, "Agribusiness and food & ingredients finished the year on a strong note.  On a combined, full-year basis, agribusiness, edible oils and milling segments generated record results of approximately $1.3 billion in EBIT and returns above cost of capital. 

"Our agribusiness team effectively managed risks as markets transitioned from extreme tightness to emerging surpluses, while capitalizing on strong oilseed processing margins in the Northern Hemisphere and navigating unpredictable farmer selling patterns. Food & ingredients achieved record quarter and full-year results with all regions reporting higher year-over-year annual earnings.  Our food team has made big strides in its effort to engage with customers and extract more value from operations and category management, which are all part of a larger performance management program we are rolling out across our business.

"Our sugar and ethanol trading & merchandising operations performed well in the quarter and full year; however, our Brazilian sugarcane milling operations continued to be impacted by depressed global sugar prices, low sucrose cane content (ATR) and capped ethanol prices in Brazil.  In the quarter we took several restructuring & impairment charges, which is part of our ongoing effort to improve the cost structure of our industrial business.  We made good progress during the year to reduce costs in our milling operations, and the efforts will continue.  We are actively engaged in our strategic review to optimize the value of this business and have retained financial advisors to assist in the process. 

"We enter 2014 with good momentum.  Lower commodity prices are spurring growth in demand and trade.  Soybean crops in South America are on track to set another record level of production.  Similar to last year, this will put a premium on logistics expertise and assets, which fits our capabilities well.  We expect our food & ingredients segment to extract even greater value from the downstream chains, and we will have incremental contribution from our acquisition of Grupo Altex's wheat mills in Mexico, which we completed at the end of 2013.  

"Lastly, we believe our strong financial position provides us the opportunity to return capital to our shareholders as part of our balanced approach to allocating capital.  As a result, commencing in the first quarter we intend to repurchase $200 million of our common shares and will continue to be focused on our use of capital to maximize returns as we move through 2014."      

Fourth Quarter Results

Agribusiness
Agribusiness produced solid results, more than doubling a challenging year-ago period.  Higher results in the quarter were primarily driven by strong oilseed processing margins in North America, Europe and China, which benefited from the combination of strong demand, large harvests and a lack of oilseed exports out of South America.  Higher results in our merchandising operations were driven by large export programs to Asia, the Middle East and Europe.  In South America, which was in the slow season, domestic oilseed processing results were higher in Brazil and Argentina.  Results in the fourth quarter 2012 included charges of $76 million, primarily related to the loss on sale of certain long-term recoverable tax assets for cash.  

Sugar & Bioenergy
Higher results in the quarter were driven by higher margins and volumes in our trading & merchandising operations and improved performance in our U.S. biofuels business, which benefited from the robust ethanol production environment.  Results in our Brazilian sugarcane milling operations were lower than last year and generated a loss in the quarter, as expected.  Higher cane milling volume and ethanol prices were more than offset by lower ATR and sugar prices.  Results in the fourth quarter included approximately $10 million of restructuring and impairment charges related to improving the cost structure of our Brazilian milling operations.

Edible Oil Products
The fourth quarter was the strongest quarter of the year as we drove higher margins through improved management of pricing, new product introduction, and improved operational efficiency.  While we delivered a record year, quarterly results compared to last year were slightly lower on an adjusted basis as improved performances in Europe and North America were more than offset by lower results in Brazil and Asia.  Results in the fourth quarter 2012 included a $7 million charge related to the loss on sale of certain long-term recoverable tax assets for cash and a $16 million valuation adjustment for certain value added taxes in Brazil.

Milling Products
Higher results in the quarter were primarily driven by improved performances in corn milling and our Brazilian wheat milling operations.  Corn milling results benefited from improved margins and higher volumes, which were due in part to the arrival of the U.S. corn crop and strong demand from customers who had delayed purchases in anticipation of record corn production.  In Brazil, results benefited from improved customer mix and well-executed wheat import programs from North America, which replaced wheat volumes from Argentina.  Wheat milling results in Mexico were solid and up from last year, and rice milling results were comparable to the year-ago period.  Results in the fourth quarter 2012 included a $6 million valuation adjustment for certain value added taxes in Brazil.

Fertilizer
Higher results in our Brazilian fertilizer port operation were partially offset by lower results in Argentina, primarily due to lower volumes from a reduction in planted corn and wheat acreage, which requires higher levels of fertilization.  Overall, the ongoing fertilizer operations continue to deliver returns above cost of capital while contributing to our integrated agribusiness activities in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. 

Cash Flow
Cash provided by operations in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was approximately $2.2 billion compared to cash used of $457 million in the same period last year.  The year-over-year variance primarily reflects lower levels of operating working capital resulting from the decrease in crop prices and a continued focus on optimizing working capital.   Capital investment for the year was approximately $1 billion, which was in line with our targeted level of spend. 

Income Taxes
Income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $904 million and were impacted by valuation allowances and provisions related to deferred tax assets primarily in our sugar & bioenergy segment, charges for uncertain tax positions and company earnings mix.  Adjusting for certain gains and charges, the full year effective tax rate was approximately 30%.

Outlook

Drew Burke, Chief Financial Officer, stated, "In agribusiness, global demand is strong.  With the reduction in crop prices, livestock production economics are generally good around the world, which is positive for oilseed processing margins and trade. South American crops are progressing well, and soon soy export demand will be shifting from the U.S. to this region.  Handling and transporting this record crop will pose significant logistical challenges, particularly in Brazil, which should provide us with attractive market opportunities considering our network of assets and experience in the region.

"In food & ingredients, we expect continued strong performance, as we continue to strengthen our operations, invest in innovation and leverage our customer relationships across regions and businesses.  Demand in our core categories is strong and our businesses are well placed to take full advantage of that dynamic.  Similar to past years, we expect results to be seasonally weaker in the first quarter and progressively improve throughout the year. 

"Considering global sugar prices and the uncertainty surrounding further gasoline price increases in Brazil, we are forecasting results in sugar & bioenergy to be about breakeven.  We will manage this business to be cash flow positive, limiting capital investment to agricultural and industrial maintenance and efficiency projects only.

"Additionally, we expect the following for 2014:  depreciation, depletion and amortization of approximately $560 million; capital expenditures of approximately $900 million; and a full-year tax rate of approximately 23%."

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release contains certain "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  Bunge has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures below.  These measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Total segment EBIT

Total segment earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) is consolidated net income attributable to Bunge excluding interest income, interest expense and income tax attributable to each segment.

Total segment EBIT is a non-GAAP financial measure and is not intended to replace net income attributable to Bunge, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Total segment EBIT is an operating performance measure used by Bunge's management to evaluate its segments' operating activities.  Bunge's management believes total segment EBIT is a useful measure of its segments' operating profitability, since the measure allows for an evaluation of the performance of its segments without regard to its financing methods or capital structure.  In addition, EBIT is a financial measure that is widely used by analysts and investors in Bunge's industries.  Total segment EBIT is not a measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP.

Below is a reconciliation of total segment EBIT to net income attributable to Bunge:

Earnings per common share-diluted (excluding certain gains & charges and discontinued operations)

Below is a reconciliation to earnings per common share-diluted (excluding certain gains & charges and discontinued operations) to earnings per common share-diluted. Earnings per common share-diluted (excluding certain gains & charges and discontinued operations) is a non-GAAP financial measure and is not a measure of earnings per common share–diluted, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. It should not be considered as an alternative to earnings per share-diluted or any other measure of consolidated operating results under U.S. GAAP.
