This guidance does not include the Jazan transaction or the expected restart of the Lu'An facility.
  • Expect fiscal year 2021 capital expenditures* of approximately $2.5 billion. This guidance does not include the Jazan transaction.

#Earnings per share is calculated and presented on a diluted basis from continuing operations and attributable to Air Products.

*Certain results in this release, including in the highlights above, include references to non-GAAP financial measures on a consolidated, continuing operations basis and a segment basis. Additional information regarding these measures and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP historical results can be found below. In addition, as discussed below, it is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to identify the timing or occurrence of events and transactions that could significantly impact future GAAP EPS or cash flow used for investing activities if they were to occur.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) today reported second quarter fiscal 2021 GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $2.13, down four percent; GAAP net income of $477 million, down three percent; and GAAP net income margin of 19.1 percent, down 300 basis points, each versus prior year. These results include an estimated $0.10 to $0.15 per share negative impact from COVID-19.

On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $2.08 was up two percent; adjusted EBITDA* of $934 million was up five percent; and adjusted EBITDA margin of 37.3 percent was down 300 basis points, each versus prior year. These results include an estimated $0.10 to $0.15 per share negative impact from COVID-19. Non-GAAP adjusted EPS excludes a $0.12 gain on an exchange with a joint venture partner, partially offset by an $0.08 negative impact from a facility closure.

Second quarter sales of $2.5 billion increased thirteen percent due to seven percent higher energy cost pass-through, four percent favorable currency, and two percent higher pricing. Volumes were flat, as new plants, acquisitions and increased sale-of-equipment activities were offset by reduced contributions from the Lu'An gasification project in Asia ("Lu'An"), lower merchant demand from COVID-19, and the severe Winter Storm Uri that affected the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Commenting on the results, Air Products' Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Seifi Ghasemi said, "Despite ongoing challenges from COVID-19 globally and the severe winter storm in the U.S. Gulf Coast during the quarter, our talented, committed and dedicated team continued to work tirelessly, supporting our customers and successfully executing our megaprojects. Adjusted EPS improved over the prior year, we continued to improve pricing, and we again generated strong cash flow. Meanwhile, Air Products continues to lead with world-scale energy transition projects in gasification, carbon capture and carbon-free hydrogen."

Fiscal Second Quarter Results by Business Segment 

  • Industrial Gases - Americas sales of $1,056 million were up 13 percent over the prior year. Fifteen percent higher energy cost pass through, primarily driven by the winter storm; three percent higher pricing; and one percent favorable currency were partially offset by six percent lower volumes, primarily due to the impact of COVID-19 and the winter storm. Operating income of $263 million decreased two percent, due to lower volumes, partially offset by higher pricing. Operating margin of 24.9 percent decreased 380 basis points, driven by the higher energy cost pass-through, which negatively impacted margin by about 430 basis points. Adjusted EBITDA of $449 million increased six percent, as higher pricing, the acquisition of hydrogen assets and higher equity affiliates' income more than offset the lower volumes. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 42.5 percent decreased 310 basis points, driven by the higher energy cost pass-through, which negatively impacted margin by about 650 basis points.

Sequentially, sales increased 13 percent on 10 percent higher energy cost pass-through, two percent higher volumes, and one percent higher pricing.

  • Industrial Gases - EMEA sales of $585 million increased 19 percent over the prior year on nine percent favorable currency; five percent higher volumes, driven primarily by acquisitions and higher onsite volumes, but partially offset by lower demand from COVID-19; three percent higher energy cost pass-through; and two percent higher pricing. Operating income of $140 million increased 12 percent, primarily due to higher pricing, higher volumes and favorable currency. Operating margin of 23.9 percent decreased 140 basis points. Adjusted EBITDA of $218 million increased 17 percent, primarily due to higher pricing and volumes, favorable currency, and equity affiliates' income. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 37.2 percent decreased 50 basis points.

Sequentially, sales increased four percent, as two percent favorable currency, two percent higher energy cost pass-through, and one percent higher pricing more than offset one percent lower volumes.

  • Industrial Gases - Asia sales of $698 million increased six percent from the prior year on seven percent favorable currency and one percent higher pricing, partially offset by two percent lower volumes. Higher merchant volumes and new plants partially offset reduced contributions from Lu'An. Operating income of $199 million decreased five percent and operating margin of 28.5 percent decreased 330 basis points, both primarily due to reduced contributions from Lu'An. Adjusted EBITDA of $324 million decreased one percent and adjusted EBITDA margin of 46.4 percent decreased 330 basis points, both primarily due to Lu'An. 

Sequentially, sales decreased three percent, as one percent favorable currency was more than offset by four percent lower volumes, primarily due to the Lunar New Year impact. 

Outlook

Air Products expects full-year fiscal 2021 adjusted EPS guidance of $8.95 to $9.10, up seven to nine percent over prior year adjusted EPS. For the fiscal 2021 third quarter, Air Products' adjusted EPS guidance is $2.30 to $2.40, up 14 to 19 percent over fiscal 2020 third quarter adjusted EPS. This guidance does not include the Jazan transaction or the expected restart of the Lu'An facility.

Air Products expects capital expenditures of approximately $2.5 billion for full-year fiscal 2021. This guidance does not include the Jazan transaction.

Management has provided adjusted EPS guidance on a continuing operations basis, which excludes the impact of certain items that we believe are not representative of our underlying business performance, such as the incurrence of additional costs for cost reduction actions and impairment charges, or the recognition of gains or losses on disclosed items. It is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to predict the timing or occurrence of these events or the potential for other transactions that may impact future GAAP EPS or the effective tax rate. Furthermore, it is not possible to identify the potential significance of these events in advance, but any of these events, if they were to occur, could have a significant effect on our future GAAP EPS. Management therefore is unable to reconcile, without unreasonable effort, the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS and effective tax rate to a comparable GAAP range.

RECONCILIATIONS OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Millions of dollars unless otherwise indicated, except for per share data)

We present certain financial measures, other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), on an "adjusted" or "non-GAAP" basis. On a consolidated basis, these measures include adjusted diluted earnings per share ("EPS"), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted effective tax rate, and capital expenditures. On a segment basis, these measures include adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin. In addition to these measures, we also present certain supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to help the reader understand the impact that certain disclosed items, or "non-GAAP adjustments," have on the calculation of our adjusted diluted EPS. For each non-GAAP financial measure, we present a reconciliation to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors, potential investors, securities analysts, and others with useful information to evaluate the performance of our business because such measures, when viewed together with financial results computed in accordance with GAAP, provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our historical financial performance and projected future results.

In many cases, non-GAAP financial measures are determined by adjusting the most directly comparable GAAP measure to exclude non-GAAP adjustments that we believe are not representative of our underlying business performance. For example, we previously excluded certain expenses associated with cost reduction actions, impairment charges, and gains on disclosed transactions. The reader should be aware that we may recognize similar losses or gains in the future. Readers should also consider the limitations associated with these non-GAAP financial measures, including the potential lack of comparability of these measures from one company to another. 

When applicable, the tax impact on our pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments reflects the expected current and deferred income tax impact of our non-GAAP adjustments. These tax impacts are primarily driven by the statutory tax rate of the various relevant jurisdictions and the taxability of the adjustments in those jurisdictions.

NON-GAAP ADJUSTMENTS

Our non-GAAP adjustments for the three and six months ended 31 March 2021 are detailed below. For information related to non-GAAP adjustments for the three and six months ended 31 March 2020, refer to Exhibit 99.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K dated 23 April 2020.

Facility Closure

During the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, we recorded a charge of $23.2 ($17.4 after-tax, or $0.08 per share) primarily for a noncash write-down of assets associated with a contract termination in the Industrial Gases – Americas segment. This charge is reflected as "Facility closure" on our consolidated income statements for the three and six months ended 31 March 2021 and was not recorded in segment results.

Gain On Exchange With Joint Venture Partner

As of 30 September 2020, we held a 50% ownership interest in Tyczka Industrie-Gases GmbH ("TIG"), a joint venture in Germany with the Tyczka Group that is primarily a merchant gases business. We accounted for this arrangement as an equity method investment in our Industrial Gases – EMEA segment.

Effective 23 February 2021 (the "acquisition date"), we agreed with our joint venture partner to separate TIG into two separate businesses. On the acquisition date, we acquired a portion of the business on a 100% basis, and our partner paid us $10.8 to acquire the rest of the business. The exchange resulted in a gain of $36.8 ($27.3 after-tax, or $0.12 per share), which is reflected as "Gain on exchange with joint venture partner" on our consolidated income statements for the three and six months ended 31 March 2021. The gain included $12.7 from the revaluation of our previously held equity interest in the portion of the business that we retained and $24.1 from the sale of our equity interest in the remaining business. The gain was not recorded in segment results.

We accounted for the acquisition as a business combination within our Industrial Gases – EMEA segment. The results of this business did not materially impact our consolidated income statements for the periods presented.

Discontinued Operations

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2021, we recorded net income from discontinued operations of $10.3 ($0.05 per share), primarily from the settlement of a state tax appeal related to the gain on the sale of our former Performance Materials Division in fiscal year 2017.

ADJUSTED DILUTED EPS

The table below provides a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure for each of the major components used to calculate adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations, which we view as a key performance metric. In periods that we have non-GAAP adjustments, we believe it is important for the reader to understand the per share impact of each such adjustment because management does not consider these impacts when evaluating underlying business performance. The per share impact for each non-GAAP adjustment was calculated independently and may not sum to total adjusted diluted EPS due to rounding.

ADJUSTED EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA MARGIN

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income less income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, and excluding non-GAAP adjustments, which we do not believe to be indicative of underlying business trends, before interest expense, other non-operating income (expense), net, income tax provision, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful metrics for management to assess operating performance. Margins are calculated independently for each period by dividing each line item by consolidated sales for the respective period and may not sum to total margin due to rounding.

The tables below present consolidated sales and a reconciliation of net income on a GAAP basis to adjusted EBITDA and net income margin on a GAAP basis to adjusted EBITDA margin:

ADJUSTED EFFECTIVE TAX RATE

The effective tax rate equals the income tax provision divided by income from continuing operations before taxes.

The tax impact of our pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments reflects the expected current and deferred income tax expense associated with each adjustment and is primarily dependent upon the statutory tax rate of the various relevant jurisdictions and the taxability of the adjustments in those jurisdictions.

We expect capital expenditures for fiscal year 2021 to be approximately $2.5 billion. This guidance does not include the Jazan transaction.

It is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to reconcile our forecasted capital expenditures to future cash used for investing activities because we are unable to identify the timing or occurrence of our future investment activity, which is driven by our assessment of competing opportunities at the time we enter into transactions. These decisions, either individually or in the aggregate, could have a significant effect on our cash used for investing activities.

OUTLOOK

The guidance provided below does not include the Jazan transaction or the expected restart of the Lu'An facility. This guidance is provided on an adjusted continuing operations basis and is compared to adjusted historical diluted EPS. These adjusted measures exclude the impact of certain items that we believe are not representative of our underlying business performance, such as the incurrence of additional costs for cost reduction actions and impairment charges, or the recognition of gains or losses on disclosed items. It is not possible, without unreasonable efforts, to identify the timing or occurrence of these events or the potential for other transactions that may impact future GAAP EPS. Furthermore, it is not possible to identify the potential significance of these events in advance, but any of these events, if they were to occur, could have a significant effect on our future GAAP EPS. Accordingly, management is unable to reconcile, without unreasonable effort, the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS on a continuing operations basis to a comparable GAAP range. The per share impact for each non-GAAP adjustment was calculated independently and may not sum to total adjusted diluted EPS due to rounding.
