Strength across all regions drives sales to a quarterly record of $765 million

Third quarter 2021 EPS increased 32% to $0.66 from $0.50 in 2020

Fiscal 2021 sales guidance increased to a range of 9% to 11% growth

Fiscal 2021 GAAP EPS raised to a range of $2.20 to $2.26 and adjusted EPS to a range of $2.28 to $2.34

Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI) (the Company) today reported third quarter 2021 net earnings of $84.4 million compared with $63.4 million in 2020. Earnings per share (EPS)1 for the third quarter 2021 increased 32% to $0.66 compared to $0.50 in 2020.

"Donaldson’s third quarter sales were the highest quarterly sales in our 106-year history and reflected strength in the economy as seen in our Engine segment and the beginning of recovery in our Industrial segment," said Tod Carpenter, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Additionally, although we faced pressures from our supply chain, raw material costs, and sales mix, we were able to offset this with volume leverage and recorded a year-over-year increase in gross margin of 50 basis points to 33.7%. We continue to expand our leadership position in filtration technology as we deliver on our strategy to increase our addressable market and generate higher returns.

"With one quarter left in our fiscal year and customer demand at a high level for most of our businesses, we are confident the sales momentum we experienced in the third quarter will carry through our fiscal year-end. While challenges in supply chain are expected to continue through the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, we are increasing our 2021 sales guidance due to our strong third quarter sales results along with continued strength in our Engine Off-Road and Aftermarket businesses, an uptick in our On-Road business, and increasing momentum in our Industrial segment. Total sales are expected to increase between 9% and 11%, compared with prior guidance of between 5% and 8%. I am proud of how our Donaldson employees have worked together tirelessly to address the challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain constraints while managing increased demand for our products to ensure we meet the needs of our customers and advance filtration for a cleaner world."

Third quarter 2021 Engine sales increased 26.3%, or 22.0% excluding the impact from currency translation. This increase reflects strong performance in Off-Road, On-Road, and Aftermarket in all regions, partially offset by a decline in Aerospace and Defense sales as a result of ongoing weakness in commercial aerospace. The 58.2% increase in On-Road sales was led by increased Class 8 truck build rates in the United States and increased build rates and market share gains in China. Off-Road sales increased 50.7% compared to 2020, including strong growth in EMEA and Latin America, where sales nearly doubled, and a strong increase in China. Aftermarket sales, which rose 23.0% compared to 2020, experienced broad growth with all regions up year-over-year as utilization rates for construction equipment, agriculture equipment, and on-road heavy-duty trucks remain at a high level.

Third quarter 2021 Industrial sales increased 11.8%, or 7.1% excluding the impact from currency translation. This increase was driven primarily by improvement in Industrial Filtration Solutions (IFS), which increased 19.2% compared to 2020, due in part to a strong sales increase in China. IFS sales growth was driven by a mid-teens increase in Industrial Air Filtration (IAF) as IAF experienced a rebound in demand for dust collection products with all major regions reporting year-over-year growth. Process Filtration experienced double-digit sales gains, particularly in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific regions. Sales of Gas Turbine Systems (GTS) declined 12.6% year-over-year due to a decline in demand for gas turbines used in the oil and gas market, a slowing of retrofit activity, and the timing of projects. Special Applications recorded a 4.9% increase in sales compared to 2020, although on a constant currency basis sales were down slightly owing to continuing softness in the disk drive market. Partially offsetting the decline in disk drive sales were increases in Integrated Venting Solutions, Semicon/Imaging, and Membranes.

Third quarter 2021 gross margin increased to 33.7% from 33.2% in 2020. The year-over-year improvement was driven by leverage on the increased volume and pricing activities, partially offset by commodity and freight rate inflation and an unfavorable sales mix.

Third quarter 2021 operating expenses as a percent of sales were 19.4 %, an improvement from 19.8% in 2020. The improvement reflects leverage on higher sales partially offset by higher incentive compensation expense.

Donaldson’s third quarter 2021 operating income as a rate of sales ("operating margin") increased to 14.3% from 13.4% in 2020.

Third quarter 2021 interest expense declined to $3.2 million, from $4.4 million in 2020, reflecting a lower debt level. Other income, net was $4.7 million in third quarter 2021, compared with $4.3 million in 2020.

Third quarter 2021 effective tax rate decreased to 23.9% from 24.9% in 2020, driven primarily by an increase in discrete tax item benefits. Donaldson paid third quarter 2021 dividends of $26.5 million and repurchased approximately 0.4% of its outstanding shares for $32.4 million. Year-to-date Donaldson has repurchased 1.1% of its outstanding shares for $78.7 million.

Fiscal 2021 Outlook

Donaldson is increasing its fiscal 2021 guidance due to strong third quarter fiscal 2021 results, current backlog levels, and incoming order rates. GAAP EPS is expected to be between $2.20 and $2.26, compared with fiscal 2020 GAAP EPS of $2.00. Excluding a negative impact of $0.08 per share related to restructuring activities in the second quarter of 2021, adjusted fiscal 2021 EPS2 is expected to be between $2.28 and $2.34. The Company expects full-year sales to increase between 9% and 11% versus fiscal 2020, compared with prior guidance of between 5% and 8%. Currency translation is expected to benefit fiscal year 2021 sales by approximately 3%.

Fiscal 2021 Engine sales are now projected to increase between 12% and 14% from fiscal 2020, compared with prior guidance of an increase between 8% and 12%. Off-Road, On-Road, and Aftermarket are expected to show strong growth. Partially offsetting this growth is an expected year-over-year sales decline in Aerospace and Defense.

Fiscal 2021 Industrial sales are expected to increase between 3% and 5% from fiscal 2020, compared with prior guidance in a range between a 2% decline and a 2% increase.

2Adjusted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of the restructuring charges recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Growth in Industrial reflects an expected sales increase in IFS led by IAF and Process Filtration partially offset by declines in GTS and Special Applications.

Donaldson expects fiscal 2021 adjusted operating margin between 13.8% and 14.2%,3 compared with 13.2% in fiscal 2020. The year-over-year improvement is expected to come from higher gross margin, reflecting improved absorption on higher sales, pricing initiatives, as well as operating expense leverage. The improvement is partially offset by higher raw material and freight costs, second half sales mix pressure, primarily in the Engine segment, and increased incentive compensation expense.

The Company expects fiscal 2021 interest expense of approximately $13 million, and other income, net is forecast between $5 million and $7 million. Donaldson’s fiscal 2021 effective income tax rate is forecast between 24% and 25%.

The Company expects fiscal 2021 capital expenditures between $55 million and $60 million. Cash flow conversion is still expected above 100%, reflecting strong year-to-date conversion and an increase in working capital. Donaldson expects to repurchase 1.5% to 2.0% of its outstanding shares during fiscal 2021.

3The adjusted operating margin forecast excludes the impact of the restructuring charges recorded in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Note: The constant currency presentation, which is a non-GAAP measure, excludes the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company believes providing constant currency information provides valuable supplemental information regarding its results of operations. The Company calculates constant currency percentages by converting its current period local currency financial results using the prior period exchanges rates and compared these adjusted amounts to its prior period reported results. Amounts may not foot due to rounding.

Note: Although free cash flow, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted net earnings and adjusted diluted EPS are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, the Company believes they are useful in understanding its financial results. Free cash flow is a commonly used measure of a company’s ability to generate cash in excess of its operating needs. EBITDA is a commonly used measure of operating earnings less non-cash expenses. The adjusted basis presentation excludes the impact of certain matters not related to the Company’s ongoing operations. Management believes that the adjusted basis presentation reflects management’s performance in operating the Company and provides a meaningful representation of the performance of the Company’s core business and is useful to understanding its financial results. A shortcoming of these financial measures is that they do not reflect the Company’s actual results under GAAP. Management does not intend these items to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related GAAP measures. Amounts may not foot due to rounding.
