Management Discussion
  • The increase in Beer net sales is primarily due to $85.4 million of volume growth within our Mexican beer portfolio, which benefited from continued consumer demand, increased marketing spend, and new product introductions and a $37.9 million favorable impact from pricing in select markets within our Mexican beer portfolio. The increase was partially offset by a decline in craft beer net sales. The shipment timing benefit that occurred at the end of Fiscal 2019 partially reversed in Second Quarter 2020.
  • The decrease in Wine and Spirits net sales is primarily due to a $70.1 million decline in branded wine and spirits volume. The decrease in volume is partially attributable to timing as shipment volumes were accelerated for Second Quarter 2019 in advance of then expected continuing logistic and transportation constraints. The Wine and Spirits Second Quarter 2020 results have been negatively impacted by transition activities with distributors who are repositioning for ownership of brands upon closing the Wine and Spirits Transaction and the Black Velvet Transaction.
  • Our ownership interest in Canopy allows us to exercise significant influence, but not control, and, therefore, we account for our investment in Canopy under the equity method. Amounts included for the Canopy segment represent 100% of Canopy’s reported results on a two-month lag, prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and converted from Canadian dollars to U.S. dollars. Although we own less than 100% of the outstanding shares of Canopy, 100% of the Canopy results are included and subsequently eliminated in order to reconcile to our consolidated financial statements. See “Income (Loss) from Unconsolidated Investments” below for a discussion of Canopy’s net sales, gross profit, selling, general, and administrative expenses, and operating income (loss).
