NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ingevity Corporation (NYSE: NGVT) today reported its financial results for the second quarter 2022.

Record net sales of $419.9 million in the second quarter rose 17.2% versus the prior year quarter, as the company drove price increases across the businesses to help offset ongoing inflationary cost pressures. Second quarter net income of $59.8 million increased 35.0% compared to the prior year quarter.

Diluted earnings per share (EPS) in the current quarter was $1.54 compared to diluted EPS of $1.10 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted earnings of $67.0 million increased 7.5% versus the prior year quarter and diluted adjusted EPS was $1.73, which excludes, net of tax, $0.08 related to restructuring and other charges, net, $0.01 related to certain discrete tax items and $0.10 of debt refinancing expense recognized during the quarter. This compares to diluted adjusted EPS of $1.55 in the prior year quarter.

Second quarter adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of $121.1 million was up 2.9% year over year with adjusted EBITDA margin of 28.8%. Second quarter operating cash flow was $90.5 million and free cash flow was $60.9 million.

Our second quarter revenue is a record, reflecting our team’s ability to drive profitable business growth. And as we announced, with the planned acquisition of Ozark Materials and our investment in Nexeon Limited, we are putting capital to work and executing on strategic growth initiatives that will create value for our shareholders,” said John Fortson, president and CEO. Commenting on the business segments, Fortson said “In Performance Chemicals, we continued to see strong top line growth due primarily to price increases across the segment supported by continued broad-based demand. In Performance Materials, the microchip supply chain seems to be improving, but the ripple effects stemming from the prolonged China COVID-related shutdowns negatively impacted our activated carbon product sales for the quarter.”

Performance Chemicals

Sales in the Performance Chemicals segment were up 28.0% from prior year to $297.5 million.

Sales across our Performance Chemicals segment produced another record quarter,” said Fortson. “We saw double-digit growth thanks to our team’s success in offsetting inflationary pressures across all parts of the business.”

Industrial Specialties and Pavement Technologies both had record quarters with sales up 38.1% and 14.9%, respectively, versus the prior year quarter. Strength in the oilfield, adhesives and lubricants markets led Industrial Specialties’ top line growth, while Pavement Technologies growth was driven by higher volume in North America.

Engineered Polymers sales rose 20.6% driven by price increases to help offset inflationary cost increases in raw materials, energy and logistics.

Second quarter segment EBITDA was $65.5 million, up 16.1% versus the prior year quarter. Segment EBITDA margin was 22.0%, down from 24.3% the prior year, primarily due to raw material availability and supply chain disruptions which constrained production volume.

Performance Materials

Second quarter sales in Performance Materials were $122.4 million, down 2.9% compared to the prior year quarter.

In the second quarter, sales of our activated carbon products were negatively impacted primarily by lower automotive production due to the China COVID-related shutdowns and their cascading impacts across the rest of the Asia-Pacific region,” said Fortson. “As China auto and auto-related production is expected to ramp back up to normal levels in the second half of the year, we expect our Performance Materials business to benefit.”

Segment EBITDA of $55.6 million was down 9.3% versus the prior year period. Segment EBITDA margin was 45.4% versus 48.7% as our production shifted from automotive carbon products to process purification products in response to reduced China auto production.

Liquidity and Share Repurchase Authorization

Funding for the two strategic growth investments will come from a combination of cash and borrowings from the Company’s revolving credit facility, which was recently amended to, among other things, extend the maturity to 2027 and increase the borrowing limit to $1 billion. As of June 30, 2022, the undrawn capacity under the revolving credit facility was $466.2 million.

Share repurchases were $49.5 million for the quarter, and $89.9 million for the six months ending June 30, 2022, and were completed under the March 2020 share repurchase authorization. In July, the Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase authorization of up to $500 million of our common stock, replacing the March 2020 authorization.

Full-Year 2022 Guidance

Ingevity reaffirms its 2022 guidance ranges of sales between $1.525 billion to $1.65 billion and adjusted EBITDA between $430 million to $470 million.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures: This press release includes certain non‐GAAP financial measures intended to supplement, not substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. Reconciliations of non‐GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures are provided within the Appendix to this presentation. Investors are urged to consider carefully the comparable GAAP measures and the reconciliations to those measures provided. The company does not attempt to provide reconciliations of forward-looking non-GAAP guidance to the comparable GAAP measure because the impact and timing of the factors underlying the guidance assumptions are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict and are unavailable without unreasonable efforts. In addition, Ingevity believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of certainty that could be confusing to investors.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Ingevity has presented certain financial measures, defined below, which have not been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and has provided a reconciliation to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP on the following pages. These financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors should consider the limitations associated with these non-GAAP measures, including the potential lack of comparability of these measures from one company to another.

We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide management as well as investors, potential investors, securities analysts and others with useful information to evaluate the performance of the business, because such measures, when viewed together with our 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.

Ingevity uses the following non-GAAP measures:

Adjusted earnings (loss) is defined as net income (loss) plus restructuring and other (income) charges, net, acquisition and other-related costs, debt refinancing fees, litigation verdict charges, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges and the income tax expense (benefit) on those items, less the provision (benefit) from certain discrete tax items.

Diluted adjusted earnings (loss) per share is defined as net income (loss) per diluted share plus restructuring and other (income) charges, net, acquisition and other related costs, debt refinancing fees, litigation verdict charges, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges and the income tax expense (benefit) on those items, less the tax provision (benefit) from certain discrete tax items, in each case on a per share basis.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus interest expense, net, provision (benefit) for income taxes, depreciation, amortization, restructuring and other (income) charges, net, acquisition and other-related costs, litigation verdict charges, pension and postretirement settlement and curtailment (income) charges, net.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by Net sales.

Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures.

Net Debt is defined as the sum of notes payable, short-term debt, current maturities of long-term debt and long-term debt less the sum of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash associated with our New Market Tax Credit financing arrangement, and restricted investment.

Net Debt Ratio is defined as Net Debt divided by last twelve months Adjusted EBITDA, inclusive of acquisition-related pro forma adjustments.

Ingevity also uses the above financial measures as the primary measures of profitability used by managers of the business.
