Second Quarter 2022 Highlights (all historical comparisons year-over-year; results exclude discontinued operations)

  • Net sales of $109.5 million increased $10.5 million or 10.6%, driven by inflation and volume

  • GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.35 decreased $0.07

  • Adjusted EPS of $0.36 unchanged with continued pass-through of increasing material costs

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $16.9 million decreased $0.4 million or 2.3%

  • Affirming 2022 adjusted diluted EPS guidance range of $1.35 to $1.50

MILWAUKEE, July 26, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Luxfer Holdings PLC (NYSE: LXFR) ("Luxfer" or the "Company"), a global industrial company innovating niche applications in materials engineering, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2022, ended June 26, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Consolidated Results

Net sales of $109.5 million increased $10.5 million from $99.0 million in the prior year period, including a $13.0 million benefit from cost pass-through to cover rising material inflation and a $1.3 million positive contribution from volume, partially offset by a foreign exchange impact of $3.8 million.

GAAP net income from continuing operations decreased to $9.6 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to $11.9 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Adjusted net income measured $10.1 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to $10.2 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA of $16.9 million decreased by $0.4 million, or 2.3%, from $17.3 million in the prior year period. Supply chain constraints limited volumes in some areas and inflationary pressures impacted costs.

"We continued to maneuver successfully through uneven supply chain conditions to deliver for our customers in the second quarter, and I appreciate the dedication of our employees in rising to this challenge," said Andy Butcher, Chief Executive Officer. "The Elektron segment again led our financial performance this quarter and, as expected, Gas Cylinders posted sequential increases in both sales and profitability. While monitoring the ongoing evolution of the macroeconomy, we are encouraged by the broad-based demand seen across our portfolio as we prepare to execute on our long-term growth opportunities."

Second Quarter 2022 Segment Results (all historical comparisons year-over-year; results exclude discontinued operations)

Elektron Segment

  • Net sales of $63.4 million increased $10.9 million, or 20.8%, from $52.5 million, driven by favorable price impact to address material inflation

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $13.2 million increased $1.2 million, or 10.0%, from $12.0 million

Gas Cylinders Segment

  • Net sales of $46.1 million decreased $0.4 million, or 0.9%, from $46.5 million, with underlying favorable volume offset by foreign exchange headwinds of $2.0 million

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $3.7 million decreased $1.6 million, or 30.2%, from $5.3 million

Capital Resources and Liquidity

Free cash flow measured $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $7.0 million in the prior year and a $10.3 million outflow in the first quarter of 2022. During the quarter, the Company received $3.7 million in cash proceeds from the sale of a former manufacturing site in Riverhead, New York and made $0.6 million in cash restructuring payments. The Company also paid $3.6 million in dividends, or $0.13 per ordinary share, and returned $2.2 million to shareholders in the form of share repurchases.

On June 26, 2022, net debt totaled $70.6 million, resulting in a net debt to EBITDA ratio of 1.2x.

2022 Guidance

"Given our on-plan performance year-to-date, we are affirming our 2022 adjusted diluted EPS guidance of $1.35 to $1.50," said Andy Butcher.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Luxfer Holdings PLC prepares its financial statements using U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). When a company discloses material information containing non-GAAP financial measures, SEC regulations require that the disclosure include a presentation of the most directly comparable GAAP measure and a reconciliation of the GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures. Management’s inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures in this release is intended to supplement, not replace, the presentation of the financial results in accordance with GAAP. Luxfer management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionately positive or negative impact on results in any period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company’s business trends and understand the Company’s performance. In addition, management may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in the Company’s forecasting, budgeting, and long-term planning process. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains certain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Examples of such forward-looking statements include but are not limited to: (i) statements regarding the Company’s results of operations and financial condition; (ii) statements of plans, objectives or goals of the Company or its management, including those related to financing, products, or services; (iii) statements of future economic performance; and (iv) statements of assumptions underlying such statements. Words such as "believes," "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "forecasts," and "plans," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that the predictions, forecasts, projections, and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved. The Company cautions that several important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the plans, objectives, expectations, estimates, and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to: (i) lower than expected future sales; (ii) increasing competitive industry pressures; (iii) general economic conditions or conditions affecting demand for the products and services it offers, both domestically and internationally, including as a result of post-Brexit regulation, being less favorable than expected; (iv) worldwide economic and business conditions and conditions in the industries in which the Company operates; (v) fluctuations in the cost of raw materials, utilities, and other inputs; (vi) currency fluctuations and hedging risks; (vii) the Company’s ability to protect its intellectual property; (viii) the significant amount of indebtedness it has incurred and may incur and the obligations to service such indebtedness and to comply with the covenants contained therein; and (ix) risks related to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic, such as the scope and duration of the outbreak, government actions, and restrictive measures implemented in response thereto, supply chain disruptions and other impacts to the business, and the Company’s ability to execute business continuity plans, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company cautions that the foregoing list of important factors is not exhaustive. These factors are more fully discussed in the sections entitled "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Risk Factors" in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, which was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2022. When relying on forward-looking statements to make decisions with respect to the Company, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and events. Such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether because of new information, future events, or otherwise.

(1)

The calculation of earnings per share is performed separately for continuing and discontinued operations. As a result, the sum of the two in any particular period may not equal the earnings-per-share amount in total.

(2)

The loss per share for discontinued operations in the Second Quarter of 2022 and 2021 and year-to-date of 2022 has not been diluted, since the incremental shares included in the weighted-average number of shares outstanding would have been anti-dilutive.
