Air Products (NYSE: APD) today reported GAAP net income from continuing operations of $356 million, up 11 percent versus the prior year, and diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations of $1.63, up 10 percent versus the prior year, for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2016.

On a Non-GAAP basis, adjusted net income from continuing operations of $420 million was up 17 percent versus prior year, and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.92 was up 16 percent versus prior year.

Third quarter sales of $2,434 million decreased one percent from the prior year, as four percent higher volumes were more than offset by three percent lower energy pass-through and two percent unfavorable currency. The volume improvement was primarily driven by Industrial Gases – Global, Asia, and North America. Pricing overall was flat despite higher pricing in Industrial Gases – Americas and Industrial Gases – Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

On a GAAP basis, operating income of $535 million increased 26 percent and operating margin of 22.0 percent improved 480 basis points versus prior year. Adjusted operating income of $560 million increased 16 percent, and adjusted EBITDA of $833 million increased 10 percent over prior year. Adjusted operating margin of 23.0 percent and adjusted EBITDA margin of 34.2 percent both improved 340 basis points over the prior year. Adjusted ROCE increased 200 basis points to 13.5 percent. These results were primarily driven by operational improvements and restructuring benefits.

Commenting on the results, Seifi Ghasemi, chairman, president and chief executive officer, said, "I am very pleased to report that our team at Air Products delivered another set of excellent results this quarter. Despite sluggish economic growth worldwide and continued currency headwinds, our team stayed focused on executing our strategic Five-Point Plan, delivering EPS of $1.92, up 16 percent over last year, and improving EBITDA margin by more than 300 basis points. This is the eighth consecutive quarter that Air Products has reported double-digit EPS growth. Also, our ROCE increased 200 basis points and now stands at 13.5 percent.

"I want to thank the people of Air Products for coming together to prove that they have the determination and the capability to deliver outstanding results and move our company forward to be the best in the industry.

"As we move closer to the sale of our Performance Materials Division to Evonik and the tax-free spin-off of our Electronic Materials Division (Versum Materials) to shareholders, we see great opportunities ahead to win key projects and invest in our core industrial gases business so that we grow Air Products in the years to come." 

Third Quarter Results by Business Segment:

  • Industrial Gases – Americas sales of $832 million decreased seven percent versus prior year, as lower energy pass-through reduced sales by five percent and unfavorable currency reduced sales by two percent. Volumes overall decreased one percent, as strong hydrogen demand and the benefits of a new hydrogen plant in North America were more than offset by lower merchant demand in South America. Pricing increased one percent. Operating income of $235 million increased 14 percent over prior year, and adjusted EBITDA of $362 million increased 11 percent, driven by operational improvements and the benefits from restructuring actions. Record operating margin of 28.2 percent improved 520 basis points; excluding lower energy pass-through, it increased more than 400 basis points. Record adjusted EBITDA margin of 43.5 percent improved 700 basis points over prior year.
  • Industrial Gases – EMEA sales of $427 million declined six percent versus last year, with lower energy pass-through reducing sales by five percent and unfavorable currency reducing sales by one percent. Pricing increased one percent and volumes decreased one percent. Operating income of $103 million increased 18 percent from the prior year, and adjusted EBITDA of $160 million increased nine percent versus prior year on the benefits from productivity and pricing actions. Record operating margin of 24.2 percent increased 500 basis points; excluding lower energy pass-through, it increased 400 basis points. Record adjusted EBITDA margin of 37.4 percent increased 520 basis points over the prior year.
  • Industrial Gases – Asia sales of $448 million increased seven percent versus prior year, as volume growth of 14 percent, driven by new plants and strong underlying business, was partially offset by five percent unfavorable currency and two percent lower pricing. Operating income of $118 million increased 17 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $182 million increased 10 percent on the benefits from productivity actions and higher volumes. Operating margin of 26.4 percent improved 220 basis points over prior year, and adjusted EBITDA margin of 40.7 percent increased 110 basis points.
  • Materials Technologies sales of $520 million decreased four percent versus the prior year on two percent lower pricing, one percent lower volumes, and one percent unfavorable currency. Operating income of $135 million was up three percent. Adjusted EBITDA of $154 million was flat. Operating margin of 26.0 percent was up 160 basis points, and adjusted EBITDA margin of 29.7 percent was up 110 basis points.
    • Electronic Materials sales of $243 million declined eight percent from the prior year on six percent lower volumes and two percent unfavorable currency. Materials volumes were flat, as growth in Advanced Materials was offset by softer Process Materials volumes. Operating margin of 30.0 percent and adjusted EBITDA margin of 35.3 percent were up modestly, driven by favorable pricing and mix, and productivity.
    • Performance Materials sales of $277 million were flat with the prior year as four percent higher volumes were offset by four percent lower pricing, driven by lower raw material costs. Operating margin of 22.7 percent increased 180 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 24.9 percent increased 130 basis points, driven by productivity and favorable price/raw material balance.

Non-GAAP results for the Company in the fiscal third quarter exclude an income tax expense of $45.7 million, or $0.21 per share, related to a dividend from a foreign subsidiary; $14.2 million, or $0.04 per share, of expenses for cost reduction actions; $9.5 million, or $0.04 per share, in legal and advisory fees related to the intended separation of the Company's Materials Technologies business; and $1.0 million for pension settlement costs.

Outlook 
The capital expenditure forecast for fiscal year 2016 is approximately $1.2 billion.

Air Products expects fiscal 2016 fourth quarter adjusted EPS from continuing operations to be between $1.91 and $2.01 per share, which at midpoint, represents an increase of seven percent over the fourth quarter of the prior year.

The Company is increasing its full-year fiscal 2016 adjusted EPS from continuing operations guidance to $7.45 to $7.55 earnings per share, which at midpoint, represents an increase of 14 percent over the prior year. The Company's previous guidance was $7.40 to $7.55.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Millions of dollars unless otherwise indicated, except for share data)

The discussion of third quarter and year-to-date results includes comparisons to non-GAAP ("adjusted") financial measures. The presentation of non-GAAP measures is intended to enhance the usefulness of financial information by providing measures which management uses internally to evaluate our operating performance and manage our capital expenditures.

We use non-GAAP measures to assess our operating performance by excluding certain disclosed items that we believe are not representative of our underlying business. We believe non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with meaningful information to understand our underlying operating results and to analyze financial and business trends. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed in isolation, are not a substitute for GAAP measures, and have limitations which include but are not limited to:

  • Our measure excludes certain disclosed items, which we do not consider to be representative of underlying business operations. However, these disclosed items represent costs (benefits) to the Company.
  • Though not business operating costs, interest expense and income tax provision represent ongoing costs of the Company.
  • Depreciation, amortization, and impairment charges represent the wear and tear and/or reduction in value of the plant, equipment, and intangible assets which permit us to manufacture and/or market our products.
  • Other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

A reader may find any one or all of these items important in evaluating our performance. Management compensates for the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures by using them only to supplement our GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. In evaluating these financial measures, the reader should be aware that we may incur expenses similar to those eliminated in this presentation in the future.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as income from continuing operations (including noncontrolling interests) excluding certain disclosed items, which the Company does not believe to be indicative of underlying business trends, before interest expense, income tax provision, and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted EBITDA provides a useful metric for management to assess operating performance.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURES

We utilize a non-GAAP measure in the computation of capital expenditures and include spending associated with facilities accounted for as capital leases. Certain contracts associated with facilities that are built to provide product to a specific customer are required to be accounted for as leases, and such spending is reflected as a use of cash within cash provided by operating activities if the arrangement qualifies as a capital lease.

Below is a reconciliation of capital expenditures on a GAAP basis to a non-GAAP measure:

RETURN ON CAPITAL EMPLOYED (ROCE)

Return on capital employed (ROCE) is calculated as earnings after-tax divided by average total capital. Earnings after-tax is defined as operating income and equity affiliates' income, after-tax, at our effective tax rate. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income and taxes have been adjusted for the impact of the disclosed items detailed below. Total capital consists of total debt, total equity, and redeemable noncontrolling interest less assets of discontinued operations.

AIR PRODUCTS AND CHEMICALS, INC. and Subsidiaries 
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
(Unaudited) 

(Millions of dollars, unless otherwise indicated)

1. MATERIALS TECHNOLOGIES SEPARATION

On 16 September 2015, the Company announced plans to separate its Materials Technologies business, which contains two divisions, Electronic Materials (EMD) and Performance Materials (PMD), into an independent publicly traded company and distribute to Air Products shareholders all of the shares of the new public company in a tax-free distribution (a "spin-off"). Versum Materials, LLC, or Versum, was formed as the new company to hold the Materials Technologies business in November 2015 and is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

On 6 May 2016, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to sell certain subsidiaries and assets comprising the Performance Materials division to Evonik Industries AG for $3.8 billion in cash and the assumption of certain liabilities. As a result, the Company now intends to include only the Electronic Materials division in the Versum spin-off. The Company is targeting to complete the spin‑off in calendar year 2016. Versum will be converted from a limited liability company to a Delaware corporation (Versum Materials, Inc.) prior to spin-off.

For the three and nine months ended 30 June 2016, we incurred separation costs of $9.5 ($54.2 including tax impact, or $.25 per share) and $28.9 ($75.1 including tax impact, or $.34 per share), respectively, primarily related to legal and other advisory fees. These fees are reflected on the consolidated income statements as "Business separation costs." The tax impact includes an income tax expense of $45.7 resulting from a dividend declared during the third quarter to repatriate $443.8 from a subsidiary in South Korea to the U.S. Previously, most of these foreign earnings were considered to be indefinitely reinvested.

2. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS    

On 29 March 2016, the Board of Directors approved the Company's exit of its Energy-from-Waste (EfW) business.  As a result, efforts to start up and operate its two EfW projects located in Tees Valley, United Kingdom, have been discontinued.  The decision to exit the business and stop development of the projects was based on continued difficulties encountered and the Company's conclusion, based on testing and analysis completed during the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, that significant additional time and resources would be required to make the projects operational. In addition, the decision allows the Company to execute its strategy of focusing resources on its core Industrial Gases business. As a result, the EfW segment has been presented as a discontinued operation. Prior year EfW business segment information has been reclassified to conform to current year presentation. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, a loss on disposal of $945.7 ($846.6 after-tax) was recorded, primarily to write down assets to their estimated net realizable value and record a liability for plant disposition costs. Income tax benefits related only to one of the projects, as the other did not qualify for a local tax deduction. The loss from discontinued operations, net of tax during the three months ended 30 June 2016 and 2015 primarily relates to land leases, commercial and administrative costs, and costs incurred for ongoing project exit activities.

3. COST REDUCTION ACTIONS    

For the three and nine months ended 30 June 2016, we recognized an expense of $14.2 ($9.3 after-tax, or $.04 per share) and $22.8 ($16.4 after-tax, or $.08 per share), respectively, for severance and other benefits related to cost reduction actions. During the first nine months of fiscal year 2016, the cost reduction actions resulted in the elimination of approximately 500 positions. The expenses related primarily to the Industrial Gases – Americas and the Industrial Gases – EMEA segments.

4. PENSION SETTLEMENT

Our U.S. supplemental pension plan provides for a lump sum benefit payment option at the time of retirement, or for corporate officers, six months after the retirement date. Pension settlements are recognized when cash payments exceed the sum of the service and interest cost components of net periodic pension cost of the plan for the fiscal year. For the three and nine months ended 30 June 2016, we recognized a pension settlement charge of $1.0 ($.6 after-tax) and $3.6 ($2.2 after-tax, or $.01 per share). This settlement accelerated the recognition of a portion of actuarial losses deferred in accumulated other comprehensive loss. We expect that additional settlement losses will be recognized during the fourth quarter.

5. BALANCE SHEET CLASSIFICATION OF DEFERRED TAXES

In November 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued guidance to simplify the presentation of deferred income taxes by requiring that all deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet. As of the first quarter of fiscal year 2016, we adopted this guidance on a retrospective basis. Accordingly, prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. The guidance, which did not change the existing requirement to net deferred tax assets and liabilities within a jurisdiction, resulted in a reclassification adjustment that increased noncurrent deferred tax assets by $13.7 and decreased noncurrent deferred tax liabilities by $99.9 as of 30 September 2015.
