#Earnings per share is calculated and presented on a diluted basis from continuing operations 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 reconciliations 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 fiscal year 2022 results, including GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $10.08, up 11 percent over prior year, which includes a negative impact of $0.32 in the fourth quarter for the loss on the divestiture of the Russia business and the impairment of two equity affiliates in the Asia segment. GAAP net income of $2,267 million was up seven percent over prior year, as higher pricing and volumes, as well as equity affiliates' income driven by the Jazan project, more than offset higher costs, including the loss on the Russia business divestiture and the equity affiliate impairment, and unfavorable currency due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. GAAP net income margin of 17.8 percent was down 270 basis points, which included a negative impact of about 200 basis points from higher energy cost pass-through.

For the year, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $10.41 increased 15 percent over the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA of $4,247 million was up nine percent over the prior year, as higher pricing and volumes, as well as equity affiliates' income driven by the Jazan project, more than offset higher costs and unfavorable currency. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 33.4 percent decreased 420 basis points, which included a negative impact of about 400 basis points from higher energy cost pass-through.

Full-year sales of $12.7 billion increased 23 percent over the prior year on 13 percent higher energy cost pass-through, eight percent higher volumes, and six percent higher pricing, partially offset by four percent unfavorable currency. Volume growth was primarily driven by hydrogen, new plants, merchant and sale of equipment activities. Pricing improved in the Americas, Asia and Europe — the Company's three largest segments — and across most major product lines.

Fiscal Fourth Quarter Results

For its fiscal fourth quarter 2022 results, Air Products reported GAAP EPS from continuing operations of $2.56, up two percent over prior year, which includes a negative impact of $0.32 for the loss on the Russia business divestiture and the impairment of two equity affiliates in the Asia segment. GAAP net income of $593 million was down four percent over prior year as higher volumes, pricing, and equity affiliates' income were more than offset by higher costs, including the loss on the Russia business divestiture and the equity affiliate impairment, and unfavorable currency due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. GAAP net income margin of 16.6 percent decreased 520 basis points, which included a negative impact of about 250 basis points from higher energy cost pass-through.

For the quarter, on a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $2.89 increased 15 percent over the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA of $1,145 million was up 10 percent over the prior year, as higher volumes, pricing and equity affiliates' income more than offset higher costs as well as unfavorable currency due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 32.1 percent decreased 450 basis points, which included a negative impact of about 450 basis points from higher energy cost pass-through.

Fourth quarter sales of $3.6 billion increased 26 percent over the prior year on 15 percent higher energy cost pass-through, nine percent higher volumes, and eight percent higher pricing, partially offset by six percent unfavorable currency. Volume growth, primarily in Asia and the Americas, was driven by new plants, recovery in hydrogen and better merchant demand. Pricing improved in the three largest regional segments.

Commenting on the results, Air Products' Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Seifi Ghasemi said, "Working together, the Air Products team delivered higher volume and pricing in our base industrial gas business while investing in and executing world-class projects to drive the energy transition forward. Despite significant macroeconomic challenges, our people stayed focused and agile, serving our customers and demonstrating a bold commitment to make a cleaner, better future a reality. These results demonstrate the ability of Air Products to deliver strong near-term results while pursuing our longer-term growth strategy. "

Fiscal Fourth Quarter Results by Business Segment

  • Americas sales of $1,542 million were up 38 percent over the prior year on 19 percent higher energy cost pass-through, 12 percent higher volumes, and eight percent higher pricing, partially offset by one percent unfavorable currency. Operating income of $333 million increased 15 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $515 million increased eight percent, in each case due to the higher pricing and higher volumes, partially offset by higher costs. Adjusted EBITDA also reflects lower equity affiliates' income. Operating margin of 21.6 percent decreased 440 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 33.4 percent decreased 930 basis points, each of which included a negative impact from energy cost pass-through of about 400 basis points and about 650 basis points, respectively.

  • Asia sales of $860 million increased 14 percent over the prior year on 16 percent higher volumes, three percent higher pricing, and two percent higher energy cost pass-through, partially offset by seven percent unfavorable currency. Operating income of $263 million increased 28 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $373 million increased 13 percent, in each case due to the favorable volumes and pricing, which were partially offset by higher costs and unfavorable currency. Operating margin of 30.6 percent increased 330 basis points while adjusted EBITDA margin of 43.3 percent decreased 50 basis points.

  • Europe sales of $864 million increased 34 percent over the prior year on 30 percent higher energy cost pass-through and 19 percent higher pricing across all product lines and sub-regions, partially offset by 15 percent unfavorable currency. Volumes were stable despite the challenging economic environment. Operating income of $150 million increased 20 percent and adjusted EBITDA of $217 million increased eight percent, in each case primarily driven by higher pricing, which was partially offset by unfavorable currency and higher costs. Operating margin of 17.4 percent decreased 200 basis points and adjusted EBITDA margin of 25.1 percent decreased 600 basis points, each of which included a negative impact from energy cost pass-through of about 450 basis points and about 750 basis points, respectively.

  • Middle East and India equity affiliates' income of $63 million was up $41 million over the prior year, primarily from the Jazan joint venture.

  • Corporate and other sales of $263 million decreased 12 percent compared to the prior year, driven by lower sale of equipment activity.

Outlook

Effective beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, management will review adjusted earnings per share excluding the impact of non-service related components of the net periodic benefit/cost for our defined benefit pension plans. Air Products expects full-year fiscal 2023 adjusted EPS guidance of $11.20 to $11.50, up nine to 12 percent over prior year adjusted EPS. For the fiscal 2023 first quarter, Air Products' adjusted EPS guidance is $2.60 to $2.80, up five to 13 percent over fiscal 2022 first quarter adjusted EPS. The projected percentage increase in adjusted EPS for full year fiscal 2023 and fiscal 2023 first quarter is calculated using adjusted fiscal 2022 results in order to present this information on a consistent basis using the calculation of adjusted EPS that will be applied in fiscal year 2023. Refer to the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP historical results below for additional information.

Air Products expects capital expenditures of $5.0 - $5.5 billion for full-year fiscal 2023.

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. Similarly, 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. 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 results. Management therefore is unable to reconcile, without unreasonable effort, the Company's forecasted range of adjusted EPS, the effective tax rate and our capital expenditures 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.

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.

When applicable, the tax impact of 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.

We provide these non-GAAP financial measures to allow investors, potential investors, securities analysts, and others to evaluate the performance of our business in the same manner as our management. We believe these 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. However, we caution readers not to consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. 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.

NON-GAAP ADJUSTMENTS

Our non-GAAP adjustments for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended 30 September 2022 are detailed below. There were no non-GAAP adjustments in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. For information related to non-GAAP adjustments for the fiscal year ended 30 September 2021, refer to Exhibit 99.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K dated 4 November 2021.

Business and Asset Actions
During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, we divested our small industrial gas business in Russia due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. As a result, we recorded a noncash charge of $73.7 ($61.0 after tax, or $0.27 per share), which included transaction costs and cumulative currency translation losses. This charge is reflected as "Business and asset actions" on our consolidated income statements and was not recorded in the results of our Europe segment.

Equity Method Investment Impairment Charge
During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, we determined there was an other-than-temporary impairment in two small equity affiliates in the Asia segment. As a result, we recorded a noncash charge of $14.8 ($11.1 after tax, or $0.05 per share) to write down the full carrying value of the investments. This charge is reflected on our consolidated income statements within "Equity affiliates' income" and was not recorded in segment results.

Discontinued Operations
In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, we recognized income from discontinued operations, net of tax, of $12.6 ($0.06 per share). This primarily resulted from a net tax benefit recorded upon release of tax liabilities for uncertain tax positions associated with our former Performance Materials Division for which the statute of limitations expired.

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. Per share impacts are calculated independently and may not sum to total diluted EPS and total adjusted diluted EPS due to rounding.
