FAIRPORT, N.Y., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ, ASX: CBR), a leading international producer and marketer of beverage alcohol, today reported net sales at $1.1 billion, up 18 percent over prior year, and reported net income and EPS growth of 47 percent and 45 percent, respectively, for the first quarter ended May 31, 2005.

"Constellation Brands' true growth momentum continues to accelerate and deliver increasing shareholder value as we employ our business model to achieve our strategic vision," stated Richard Sands, Constellation Brands chairman and chief executive officer. "We hit our stride in fiscal 2005, and used that momentum to set the pace for a strong first quarter of performance to kick off fiscal 2006.

"Our base business delivered top-line growth of seven percent, which was complemented by our acquisitions for an overall growth rate of 18 percent," explained Sands. "We're particularly encouraged by healthy operating margin expansion in the quarter, which reflects the continued consumer shift to higher margin wine products and the benefits of the Robert Mondavi acquisition."

Fiscal 2006 First Quarter Results

First quarter net sales, as reported under generally accepted accounting principles ("reported"), totaled $1.1 billion, up 18 percent, driven by growth in the company's branded wine and imported beers businesses. Net sales included $89.6 million of sales of brands from the Dec. 22, 2004 acquisition of The Robert Mondavi Corporation ("Robert Mondavi") and $13.4 million from sales of Ruffino brands. On Dec. 3, 2004, the company purchased a 40 percent interest in Ruffino S.r.l. ("Ruffino") and on Feb. 1, 2005, the company began distributing Ruffino's products in the United States. Excluding Robert Mondavi and Ruffino brands, net sales grew seven percent. Currency also contributed two percent of the net sales increases.

Reported operating income was $139.8 million or 12.8 percent of net sales, compared with $110.4 million or 11.9 percent of net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2005. Both reported net income of $75.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.32 set records for a first quarter, and were up 47 percent and 45 percent, respectively, over the prior year first quarter.

First quarter fiscal 2006 and 2005 reported results include acquisition- related integration costs, restructuring and related charges and unusual items. Net income and diluted earnings per share, on a comparable basis, exclude these costs, charges and items. First quarter operating income on a comparable basis, was $157.7 million or 14.4 percent of net sales, compared with $123.6 million or 13.3 percent in the prior year period. First quarter net income and diluted earnings per share on a comparable basis, increased 19 percent to $71.2 million and 15 percent to $0.30, respectively.

Constellation Wines Results

For the first quarter fiscal 2006, Constellation wines net sales totaled $750.6 million, up 23 percent driven by the Robert Mondavi acquisition and growth in branded wine, as well as a three percent favorable impact from currency.

Branded wine net sales increased 36 percent to reach $495.4 million, driven by the Robert Mondavi and Ruffino brands and eight percent growth in the base business, including a three percent benefit from currency.

Net sales of branded wine in the United States increased 54 percent, primarily driven by the addition of Robert Mondavi and Ruffino brands, as well as new product introductions such as Four Emus, Twin Fin, Monkey Bay and Kelly's Revenge.

Constellation's New Zealand portfolio is the most popular in the United States and demand for New Zealand sauvignon blanc wine continues to be very strong. "New Zealand wines such as Nobilo and Monkey Bay performed exceptionally well in the first quarter. Our pacesetting investment in new world wine exemplifies our understanding of, and real insights into, consumer desires for fruit forward wines of distinction including recently introduced products such as The Jibe," said Sands.

Additionally, Blackstone, Alice White, Ravenswood and Hardys continued to show strong marketplace performance in the quarter, as did Cook's sparkling wine and the company's 3-liter Black Box premium product line.

Branded wine net sales in Europe grew 13 percent, including a five percent benefit from currency, with strength coming from continuing demand for the company's portfolio of Australian, New Zealand and California wines. Branded wine net sales in Australasia were up 16 percent, including seven percent from currency.

"With the integration of Robert Mondavi essentially complete, we are now focused on geographic expansion of brands in that portfolio to make them truly international," explained Sands. "We know there is substantial growth potential for Robert Mondavi throughout Europe, and in other key markets around the world, which will be supported through the strength of our distribution capabilities, as well as our knowledge of markets and sales and marketing acumen. We're also leveraging those same capabilities for Ruffino in the United States."

Unveiled late in the first quarter for UK consumers, Robert Mondavi Woodbridge created retailer excitement. With new packaging graphics, convenient closures and blends created for regional tastes, the heritage of Robert Mondavi Woodbridge California table wine has been embraced by retailers throughout the UK. Scheduled for introduction during the latter portion of summer and fall months, Robert Mondavi Woodbridge expands the iconic trademark and name synonymous with premium quality. This product line for continental Europe was also showcased at Vinexpo in Paris earlier this month. Wholesale and other net sales were up three percent for the quarter, including a four percent benefit from currency.

Constellation wines operating income for the first quarter totaled $96.0 million, a 42 percent increase over the first quarter of fiscal 2005. This segment's operating margin for the quarter was 12.8 percent compared with 11.1 percent for the prior year, reflecting the benefit of improved sales mix, driven by the addition of the Robert Mondavi portfolio.

Constellation Beers and Spirits Results

Net sales for imported beers and spirits for the first quarter fiscal 2006 reached $346.0 million, a nine percent increase over the prior year period. Imported beer posted a 10 percent increase in net sales for the quarter due to volume gains for the company's Modelo, St. Pauli Girl and Tsingtao products. "Our Mexican beer portfolio significantly outperformed both the domestic and imported beer categories," stated Sands. "The portfolio showed strong growth despite a very competitive domestic beer market during the first quarter, demonstrating the strength of brand positioning with consumers, retailers and distributors."

New television advertisements for Corona Extra and Corona Light recently began airing on cable and network stations nationally, which will keep these products top of mind with consumers, reinforce the brand's differentiation and positioning, while maintaining growth momentum.

Total spirits net sales for the first quarter increased eight percent. An increase in the company's contract production services more than offset a three percent decrease in branded spirits. Consumer demand for the company's branded spirits products grew 5.6 percent, year-to-date through May 15, based on Information Resources Inc. (IRI) food and drug channel data, compared with prior year results. The first quarter decrease in branded spirits was due primarily to reduced shipments of tequila and timing of new product introductions, including 99 Oranges and Chi-Chi's flavors in the first quarter of fiscal 2005. New product introductions continue to focus on expansion of the company's premium spirits business which is a strategic objective.

"Ridgemont Reserve 1792 is a wonderful example of our new product development in the premium spirits category," explained Sands. "This excellent, small batch, eight-year-old, Kentucky bourbon will be available in 40 states by the end of August and we are encouraged by initial consumer acceptance. We are also very optimistic about Effen Vodka, with distribution increasing and strong first quarter sales."

The company is also rolling out a new premium single malt scotch (Balblair), in addition to a new premium Canadian whiskey (Danfield's).

Operating income for Constellation beers and spirits totaled $76.0 million for the first quarter, an increase of 12 percent over the prior year.

This segment's operating margin for the quarter was 22.0 percent compared with 21.5 percent for the prior year.

Pro Forma Net Sales

Pro forma net sales for the quarter, which include $115.6 million of sales from Robert Mondavi for the prior year first quarter, increased five percent, including two percent from currency. Pro forma Constellation wines net sales for the quarter, increased three percent, including three percent from currency. Pro forma branded wine net sales for the quarter increased four percent, including two percent from currency. The prior year first quarter net sales for Robert Mondavi reflect a higher level of promotional activity throughout that period.

Summary

"The strength of our portfolio, distribution reach, as well as our marketing and sales capabilities, combined with our strategic vision, consumer insights, new product development and disciplined approach to expanding our offerings, continue to fuel our momentum along the path of true growth," Sands stated.

Explanations

Net income and diluted earnings per share on a comparable basis exclude acquisition-related integration costs, restructuring and related charges and unusual items. Pro forma net sales give effect to the Robert Mondavi acquisition as if the company had owned Robert Mondavi in the same period a year ago. The company discusses results on a comparable basis and pro forma basis in order to give investors better insight on underlying business trends from continuing operations. Management uses the comparable basis measures in evaluating results from continuing operations.

"Free cash flow" as used by the company means the company's net cash flow from operating activities prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. less capital expenditures for property, plant and equipment. The company discusses free cash flow, which is considered a liquidity measure, to give investors useful information about the amount of cash generated after such capital expenditures, which can then be used, after required debt service and dividend payments, for other general corporate purposes.

Tables reconciling the above measures, as well as other related financial measures to reported results are included in this release. For a detailed discussion of these items, please see the section "Items Affecting Comparability" following the financial information. The company's measure of segment profitability excludes acquisition-related integration costs, restructuring and related charges and unusual items, which is consistent with the measure used by management to evaluate results.

 ATTACHMENTS TO CONSTELLATION BRANDS FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2006 MEDIA RELEASE

                ITEMS AFFECTING COMPARABILITY FOR FISCAL 2006

Restructuring and related charges -- The company expects to record restructuring and related charges, primarily associated with the Robert Mondavi acquisition of $0.01 per share for fiscal 2006.

Acquisition-related integration costs -- The company recorded acquisition- related integration costs of $0.02 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2006. The company estimates acquisition-related integration costs to be $0.01 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 and $0.03 per share for fiscal 2006.

Inventory step-up -- The allocation of purchase price in excess of book value for certain inventory on hand at the date of acquisition is referred to as inventory step-up. Inventory step-up represents an assumed manufacturing profit attributable to the acquired company prior to acquisition. For inventory produced and sold after the acquisition date, the related manufacturer's profit accrues to the company. The flow through of inventory step-up related to the Robert Mondavi acquisition had a negative impact of $0.01 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2006. The impact of the flow through of inventory step-up is expected to be $0.01 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2006, and $0.04 per share for fiscal 2006.

Adverse grape cost -- In connection with the Robert Mondavi acquisition, the historical cost of certain inventory on hand at the date of acquisition was higher than the company's ongoing grape cost primarily due to the purchase of grapes by Robert Mondavi prior to the date of acquisition under the terms of their then existing grape contracts. The cost of the grapes purchased under these contracts was in excess of market prices. Therefore, the company's ongoing cost to purchase grapes will be lower than Robert Mondavi's historical cost. The excess of the historical cost of grapes over the company's ongoing cost of grapes is referred to by the company as the "adverse grape cost." The adverse grape cost totaled $0.02 per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2006, and is expected to total $0.02 per share and $0.07 per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 and fiscal 2006, respectively.

Income tax adjustment -- During the first quarter of fiscal 2006, the company recorded a benefit of $0.07 per share for the reversal of an income tax accrual related to the completion of various income tax examinations.

Allied Domecq due diligence costs -- During the second quarter of fiscal 2006, the company expects to recognize $0.01 per share for professional service fees incurred for due diligence associated with its evaluation of a potential offer for Allied Domecq.



                ITEMS AFFECTING COMPARABILITY FOR FISCAL 2005

Financing costs -- On Feb. 10, 2004, the company called its $200,000,000 8.5% senior subordinated notes due 2009 which were redeemed March 2004. In connection with this redemption, the company incurred an unusual charge of $0.03 per share in the first quarter of fiscal 2005 related to the call premium and the remaining unamortized financing fees associated with the original issuance of the bonds. On Dec. 22, 2004, the company entered into a new $2.9 billion credit agreement, proceeds of which were used to fund the acquisition of Robert Mondavi, pay certain obligations of Robert Mondavi and to repay the outstanding balance on Constellation's prior credit agreement. The company recorded an unusual charge of $0.06 per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005 for the write-off of bank fees related to the repayment of the company's prior credit agreement. Financing costs charges totaled $0.09 per share in fiscal 2005.

Restructuring and related charges -- In connection with the realignment of business operations within the company's wines segment and the Robert Mondavi acquisition, the company recorded restructuring and related charges of $0.02 per share for fiscal 2005.

Acquisition-related integration costs - As a result of the Robert Mondavi acquisition, the company recorded acquisition-related integration cost of $0.03 per share for fiscal 2005.

Inventory step-up -- The flow through of inventory step-up for the Hardy and Robert Mondavi acquisitions had a negative impact of $0.02 per share for fiscal 2005.

Adverse grape cost -- The adverse grape cost totaled $0.03 per share for fiscal 2005.

Net gain on sale of non-strategic assets -- In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005, the company realized a gain on the sale of a portion of the Taunton cider property, plant and equipment, partially offset by a loss on the sale of the investment in the International Wine Investment Fund. The company recorded a net gain of $0.01 per share on these sales.

Gain on transaction termination fee -- In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005, the company recognized a gain of $0.01 per share related to the receipt of a payment associated with the termination of a previously announced potential fine wine joint venture.

     RECONCILIATION OF FREE CASH FLOW GUIDANCE
     (in millions)

     "Free cash flow" as used by the Company means the Company's net cash flow
     from operating activities prepared in accordance with generally accepted
     accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP") less capital expenditures for
     property, plant and equipment. Free cash flow is considered a liquidity
     measure and provides useful information to investors about the amount of
     cash generated after such capital expenditures, which can then be used,
     after required debt service and dividend payments, for other general
     corporate purposes. A limitation of free cash flow is that it does not
     represent the total increase or decrease in the cash balance for the
     period. Free cash flow should be considered in addition to, not as a
     substitute for, or superior to, cash flow from operating activities
     prepared in accordance with GAAP.
