Central Garden & Pet Co. suspends providing guidance for FY20 » 16:1305/0605/06/20
Going into March, at the…
Going into March, at the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak in the US, the Company was on course to deliver its full year expectations; and, despite the outbreak, underlying business momentum was solid, as evidenced by second quarter results. In March, as the COVID-19 pandemic became more pronounced in the US, our business experienced the practical realities of navigating the pandemic - including the impact of retail location closures as well as in-store curtailments or redirections of foot traffic and limited access to specialty areas, such as outdoor garden or live animals. This impact was largely mitigated in Q2 by the favorable effect of evolving consumer spending patterns, including a rise in demand related to increases in pet ownership, temporary consumables stockpiling, and a pronounced shift from a mix of channels to e-commerce. Given the unprecedented uncertainty of the global COVID-19 crisis, including the lack of clarity into the future and the rapid pace of change, the Company is suspending providing guidance for fiscal 2020 until the COVID-19 situation in the US stabilizes.
