ALPHARETTA, Ga., May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GCP Applied Technologies Inc. (NYSE: GCP) (GCP or the Company), a leading global provider of construction products, today announced preliminary financial and operating results for the first quarter 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Net sales of $237.3 million, an increase of 6.5%

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses of $62.5 million, a decrease of 6.2%

  • Loss from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders of $3.7 million

  • Adjusted EBIT* of $9.5 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA* of $20.0 million

  • Adjusted EPS of $0.04

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, GCP reported net sales of $237.3 million compared with $222.8 million in the prior-year quarter. Net Sales Constant Currency* were $242.2 million versus $222.8 million, an increase of 8.7% over the prior-year quarter. Loss from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders was $3.7 million in the first quarter 2022 compared with income of $1.5 million in the prior-year quarter, while Adjusted EBIT* was $9.5 million, a decrease of 43.8% versus prior-year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA* totaled $20.0 million, a decrease of 29.1% over the prior-year quarter. Diluted loss per share from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders was $0.05 compared with earnings of $0.02 in the first quarter of 2021, while Adjusted EPS* was $0.04 compared with $0.12 in the prior-year quarter.

"Demand was strong particularly in the Americas in both segments during the first quarter 2022. Volumes were impacted in all geographies due to intermittent pandemic restrictions, and supply chain disruptions. During the quarter we improved average selling price, lowered selling, general and administrative costs, and continued to drive productivity improvements in our operations," commented Simon Bates, GCP’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have increased our inventory balances globally in order to mitigate impacts on our customers due to supply chain issues. Despite the positive momentum and operating improvements, the cost inflation and supply chain disruptions impacted our results for the quarter."

"With respect to cost inflation we have announced further price increases in all regions. However, the effect of the ongoing global supply chain disruptions and continued increases in the cost of raw materials and freight transportation have outpaced our mitigating efforts and we expect margin headwinds to continue through the fourth quarter. The first quarter results are in line with expectations despite the challenges."

First Quarter 2022 Financial Update

  • Net sales were $237.3 million, an increase of 6.5% compared with the prior-year quarter primarily attributable to favorable pricing and volume, partially offset by foreign currency adjustments.

  • Gross margin was 30.8%, a decrease of 800 basis points compared with the prior-year quarter, primarily due to higher raw material and logistics costs.

  • Selling, general and administrative costs were $62.5 million, a decrease of 6.2% compared with the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower employee-related costs resulting from restructuring programs and lower incentive compensation costs. These favorable impacts were partially offset by higher merger and other acquisition-related costs.

  • Loss from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders was $3.7 million compared with income of $1.5 million in the prior-year quarter.

  • Adjusted EBIT* was $9.5 million, a decrease of 43.8% compared with the prior-year quarter, primarily due to lower Specialty Construction Chemical ("SCC") and lower Specialty Building Material ("SBM") operating income. Adjusted EBIT Margin* decreased by 360 basis points to 4.0% compared with the prior-year quarter.

  • Adjusted EBITDA* was $20.0 million, a decrease of 29.1% compared with the prior-year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA Margin* decreased by 430 basis points to 8.4% compared with the prior-year quarter. The decrease was due to lower Adjusted EBIT*.

Analysis of Operations

The Company has set forth in the tables below GCP's key operating statistics with percentage changes for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021.

Segment operating margin is defined as segment operating income divided by segment net sales. It represents an operating performance measure related to ongoing earnings and trends in GCP operating segments that are engaged in revenue generation and other core business activities. The Company uses this metric to allocate resources between the segments and assess its strategic and operating decisions related to core operations of its business.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the Company refers to non-GAAP financial measures that are derived on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”).

GCP believes that the non-GAAP financial information supplements its discussions about the performance of its businesses, improves period-to-period comparability and provides insight to the information that management uses to evaluate the performance of its businesses. Management uses U.S. GAAP and non-GAAP measures in financial and operational decision-making processes, for internal reporting, and as part of its forecasting and budgeting processes since non-GAAP measures provide additional transparency to GCP's core operations. These non-GAAP financial measures do not purport to represent income or liquidity measures as defined under U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to such measures as an indicator of GCP's performance. Investors should review the reconciliation of GCP’s non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures and should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate GCP’s business.

In the tables below, the Company has provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered substitutes for financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and the financial results that the Company calculates and presents in the table in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as the corresponding reconciliations from those results, should be carefully evaluated.

The following are the non-GAAP financial measures referenced in this press release and presented in the tables below:

  • Net Sales Constant Currency - is defined as current period revenue in local currency translated using prior period exchange rates. GCP uses constant currency in assessing trends in sales excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

  • Adjusted EBIT - is defined as net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders adjusted for: (i) gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines and certain other investments; (ii) currency and other financial losses in Venezuela; (iii) costs related to legacy product, environmental and other claims; (iv) restructuring and repositioning expenses, and asset write offs; (v) defined benefit plan costs other than service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets and amortization of prior service costs/credits; (vi) merger and other acquisition-related costs; (vii) other financing costs associated with the modification or extinguishment of debt; (viii) amortization of acquired inventory fair value adjustments; (ix) tax indemnification adjustments; (x) interest income, interest expense and related financing costs; (xi) income taxes; (xii) shareholder activism and other related costs; (xiii) gain on sale of corporate headquarters, net of related costs; and (xiv) certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends. Adjusted EBIT Margin is defined as Adjusted EBIT divided by net sales. GCP uses Adjusted EBIT to assess and measure its operating performance and determine performance-based employee compensation. The Company uses Adjusted EBIT as a performance measure because it provides improved quarter-to-quarter and year-over-year comparability for decision-making and compensation purposes and allows management to measure the ongoing earnings results of its strategic and operating decisions.

  • Adjusted EBITDA - is defined as Adjusted EBIT adjusted for depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales. GCP uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure in making significant business decisions.

  • Adjusted Earnings Per Share - is defined as earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations on a diluted basis adjusted for: (i) gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines and certain other investments; (ii) restructuring and repositioning expenses; (iii) defined benefit plan costs other than service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets and amortization of prior service costs/credits; (iv) merger and other acquisition-related costs; (v) tax indemnification adjustments; (vi) certain discrete tax items; (vii) certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends. GCP uses Adjusted EPS as a performance measure to review its diluted earnings per share results on a consistent basis and in determining certain performance-based employee compensation.

  • Adjusted Gross Profit - is defined as gross profit adjusted for: (i) corporate and pension-related costs included in cost of goods sold; and (ii) certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends. Adjusted Gross Margin means Adjusted Gross Profit divided by net sales. GCP uses this performance measure to understand trends and changes and to make business decisions regarding core operations.

  • Adjusted Free Cash Flow - is defined as net cash provided by or used in operating activities minus capital expenditures plus: (i) cash paid for restructuring and repositioning, merger and other acquisition-related costs, as well as certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends, net of related cash taxes; (ii) capital expenditures related to repositioning; and (iii) accelerated payments under defined benefit pension arrangements. GCP uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow as a liquidity measure to evaluate its ability to generate cash to support its ongoing business operations, to invest in its businesses, to provide a return of capital to shareholders and to determine payments of performance-based compensation.

Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBIT Margin, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Margin do not purport to represent income measures as defined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures are provided to investors and others to improve the quarter-to-quarter, year-to-year, and peer-to-peer comparability of the Company's financial results and to ensure that investors understand the information it uses to evaluate the performance of its businesses.

Adjusted EBIT has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes costs related to income and expenses from restructuring and repositioning activities which historically have been a material component of the Company's net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders. Adjusted EBITDA also has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes the impact of depreciation and amortization expense. The Company's business is substantially dependent on the successful deployment of capital, and depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of the Company costs. GCP compensates for the limitations of these measurements by using these indicators together with net income (loss) measured in accordance with U.S. GAAP to present a complete analysis of its results of operations. Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA should be evaluated together with net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to GCP shareholders measured in accordance with U.S. GAAP for a complete understanding of its results of operations.

The Company does not provide U.S. GAAP financial information on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to estimate with reasonable certainty unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(A) GCP segment operating income includes only its share of income of consolidated joint ventures.
(B) Management allocates certain corporate costs to each operating segment to the extent such costs are directly attributable to the segments.
(C) Certain pension costs include only ongoing costs, recognized quarterly, which include service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets and amortization of prior service costs/credits. “Corporate costs and pension costs in cost of goods sold" represent service costs related to our manufacturing employees. SCC and SBM segment operating income and corporate costs do not include any amounts for pension expense. Other pension-related costs, including annual mark-to-market adjustments, gains or losses from curtailments and terminations, as well as other related costs, are excluded from Adjusted EBIT. These amounts are not used by management to evaluate the performance of our businesses and significantly affect the peer-to-peer and period-to-period comparability of our financial results. Mark-to-market adjustments and other related costs are primarily attributable to changes in financial market values and actuarial assumptions and are not directly related to the operation of our businesses.
