Fiscal 2023 & Long-Term Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal 2023, PFG continues to expect net sales to be in a range of $13.7 billion to $14.0 billion. For the third quarter of fiscal 2023, PFG continues to expect Adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of $270 million to $290 million.

For the full fiscal year 2023, PFG continues to expect net sales to be in a range of $57 billion to $59 billion. For the full fiscal year of 2023, PFG continues to expect Adjusted EBITDA to be in a range of $1.27 billion to $1.35 billion.

PFG reaffirms its previously announced 3-year net sales and Adjusted EBITDA targets. PFG continues to expect to achieve annual net sales of $62 to $64 billion and Adjusted EBITDA between $1.5 and $1.7 billion in fiscal 2025.

PFG’s Adjusted EBITDA outlook excludes the impact of certain income and expense items that management believes are not part of underlying operations. These items may include, but are not limited to, loss on early extinguishment of debt, restructuring charges, certain tax items, and charges associated with non-recurring professional and legal fees associated with acquisitions. PFG’s management cannot estimate on a forward-looking basis the impact of these income and expense items on its reported net income, which could be significant, are difficult to predict, and may be highly variable. As a result, PFG does not provide a reconciliation to the closest corresponding GAAP financial measure for its Adjusted EBITDA outlook. Please see the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of this release for a discussion of certain risks to PFG’s outlook.
