Mueller Water Products Reports 2022 First Quarter Results

·22 min read

Increased Net Sales 14.7 percent to $272.3 million

Reported Net Income per Diluted Share of $0.12

Increased Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share 18.2 percent to $0.13

ATLANTA, Feb. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mueller Water Products, Inc. (NYSE: MWA) announced today that for its fiscal 2022 first quarter ended December 31, 2021, net sales were $272.3 million and net income was $19.4 million.

During the 2022 first quarter, the Company:

  • Increased net sales 14.7 percent to $272.3 million as compared with $237.4 million in the prior year quarter.

  • Generated operating income of $28.9 million as compared with $27.8 million in the prior year quarter. Increased adjusted operating income 7.2 percent to $31.3 million as compared with $29.2 million in the prior year quarter.

  • Achieved net income of $19.4 million as compared with net income of $16.7 million in the prior year quarter. Increased adjusted net income 19.8 percent to $21.2 million as compared with $17.7 million in the prior year quarter.

  • Reported net income per diluted share of $0.12 as compared with $0.11 in the prior year quarter. Increased adjusted net income per diluted share 18.2 percent to $0.13 as compared with $0.11 in the prior year quarter.

  • Increased adjusted EBITDA 6.3 percent to $47.5 million as compared with $44.7 million in the prior year quarter.

  • Generated $19.8 million of net cash provided by operating activities and $8.8 million of free cash flow for the quarter. Repurchased $20.0 million of common stock during the quarter.

“I am very encouraged by the start to our year as our team members delivered strong net sales growth of 14.7 percent in the quarter while continuing to face challenges from an extraordinarily difficult operating environment. This quarter is our first reporting under our new segment structure, Water Flow Solutions and Water Management Solutions. Net sales growth at both segments benefited from increased volumes and higher pricing across most of our product lines. With healthy demand levels in our primary end markets, we again experienced strong orders in the quarter leading to record backlog at the end of the quarter,” said Scott Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mueller Water Products.

“We remain focused on serving customers in the face of the continuing operational challenges from higher inflation, labor availability and supply chain disruptions. Despite these obstacles that have increased costs, adjusted EBITDA increased 6.3 percent in the quarter. The anticipated margin compression this quarter primarily resulted from the lag between the timing of inflation and our price realization. Due to the ongoing inflationary pressures, we again increased prices across the majority of our products during the first quarter of this year, which, along with the pricing actions we took in 2021, we expect will improve margins in the remainder of the year.

“We continue to believe that our end markets will be healthy in 2022 and are excited about the long-term positive impact that we believe the federal infrastructure bill will have on the aging water infrastructure in the U.S. Based on our solid first quarter performance, we are raising our annual guidance for both consolidated net sales and adjusted EBITDA growth. We believe that our current backlog, pricing actions and strength of our end markets will together support our growth. While we expect the challenges associated with higher inflation, supply chain disruptions and labor availability will continue in fiscal 2022, we are confident that we can make progress on our operational initiatives to deliver enhanced results.

“With a strong balance sheet and cash position, we repurchased $20.0 million of common stock during the first quarter. We continue to take a balanced approach to our cash allocation strategies. We remain focused on reinvesting in our business, accelerating growth through acquisitions and returning cash to shareholders through our quarterly dividend and share repurchases. We are confident that our growth strategies, capital investments and operational initiatives will enable us to drive continued growth in sales and adjusted EBITDA.

“In addition, in January of this year, we released our second Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report highlighting our strategy, initiatives, annual performance, targets and goals for these important areas. Our long-term environmental goals for waste disposal and greenhouse gas emissions are aligned with our business strategies to create a safer and more sustainable environment. We are very excited about our new brass foundry which is scheduled for completion in 2023. The new foundry will enable us to pour a new lead-free brass alloy, which is a noteworthy advancement in sustainability for our customers and end users. As we strive to become a sustainability leader in our industry, we are committed to delivering smart products that are safer for the environment and more efficient for our customers, while also minimizing our water and energy footprints.”

Segment Results

Water Flow Solutions

Water Flow Solutions’ product portfolio includes iron gate valves, specialty valves and service brass products. Net sales of products in the Water Flow Solutions business unit were 56 percent of fiscal 2021 consolidated net sales.

Net sales for the 2022 first quarter increased $26.1 million, or 20.3 percent, to $154.9 million as compared with $128.8 million in the 2021 first quarter. This increase was primarily due to increased volumes and higher pricing across most of our product categories.

Operating income and adjusted operating income for the first quarter 2022 were each $31.3 million. Adjusted operating income increased $8.1 million, or 34.9 percent, as compared with $23.2 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher pricing, increased volumes and favorable manufacturing performance, which were partially offset by higher costs associated with inflation and higher SG&A expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA of $38.7 million increased $8.1 million, or 26.5 percent, as compared with $30.6 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 25.0 percent for the 2022 first quarter as compared with 23.8 percent in the prior year quarter.

Water Management Solutions

Water Management Solutions’ product and service portfolio includes fire hydrants, repair and installation, natural gas, metering, leak detection, pressure control and software products. Net sales of products in the Water Management Solutions business unit were 44 percent of fiscal 2021 consolidated net sales.

Net sales for the 2022 first quarter increased $8.8 million, or 8.1 percent, to $117.4 million as compared with $108.6 million in the 2021 first quarter. This increase was primarily due to increased volumes and higher pricing across most of our product categories.

Operating income and adjusted operating income for the quarter were $11.4 million and $11.5 million, respectively. Adjusted operating income decreased $5.5 million, or 32.4 percent, as compared with $17.0 million in the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher costs associated with inflation, higher SG&A expenses and unfavorable manufacturing performance, which were partially offset by higher pricing and increased volumes.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $19.2 million with a 16.4 percent adjusted EBITDA margin as compared with prior year quarter adjusted EBITDA of $24.2 million with a 22.3 percent adjusted EBITDA margin.

Interest Expense, Net

Interest expense, net for the 2022 first quarter was $4.3 million as compared with $6.1 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease in net interest expense in the quarter resulted primarily from lower interest expense as a result of the refinancing of our 5.5% Senior Notes with 4.0% Senior Notes.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the 2022 first quarter was $6.2 million, or 24.2 percent of income before tax. Income tax expense in the prior year quarter was $5.8 million, or 25.8 percent of income before tax.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter was $19.8 million as compared with $34.1 million in the prior year quarter, primarily driven by higher inventories.

The Company invested $11.0 million in capital expenditures during the first quarter as compared with $15.6 million invested in the first quarter of the prior year.

Free cash flow (defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures) for the first quarter was $8.8 million as compared with free cash flow of $18.5 million in the comparable prior year period.

As of December 31, 2021, Mueller Water Products had $446.9 million of total debt outstanding and $207.3 million of cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s net debt leverage ratio was 1.2 times. There are no maturities on our debt until June 2029 and the Company’s 4.0% Senior Notes have no financial maintenance covenants. Based on December 31, 2021 data, the Company had approximately $133.8 million of excess availability under its ABL Agreement, bringing its total liquidity to $341.1 million.

Full-Year Fiscal 2022 Outlook

For the full-year fiscal 2022, the Company currently anticipates that consolidated net sales will increase between 6 and 10 percent as compared with the prior year. Based on first quarter performance, backlog, current expectations for end markets, increased price and inflation, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA will increase between 6 and 10 percent as compared with the prior year. The Company expects to generate positive free cash flow for the full year. These expectations assume that challenges associated with higher inflation, labor availability and supply chain disruptions will continue in fiscal 2022.

The Company’s expectations for certain financial metrics for the full-year fiscal 2022 are as follows:

  • Total SG&A expenses between $232 million and $242 million.

  • Net interest expense between $18 million and $19 million.

  • Effective income tax rate between 25 percent and 27 percent.

  • Depreciation and amortization between $62 million and $64 million.

  • Capital expenditures between $70 million and $80 million.

An archive of the webcast will also be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company’s results as determined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company also provides non-GAAP information that management believes is useful to investors. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools, and securities analysts, investors and other interested parties should not consider any of these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Company presents adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as performance measures because management uses these measures in evaluating the Company’s underlying performance on a consistent basis across periods and in making decisions about operational strategies. Management also believes these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of the Company’s recurring performance.

The Company presents net debt and net debt leverage as performance measures because management uses them in evaluating its capital management, and the investment community commonly uses them as measures of indebtedness. The Company presents free cash flow because management believes it is commonly used by the investment community to measure the Company’s ability to create liquidity.

The calculations of these non-GAAP measures and reconciliations to GAAP results are included as an attachment to this press release and have been posted online at www.muellerwaterproducts.com. The Company does not reconcile forward-looking adjusted EBITDA to the comparable GAAP measure, as permitted by Regulation S-K, because certain items, e.g., expenses related to corporate development activities, pension benefits and corporate restructuring, may have not yet occurred, are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted without unreasonable efforts. Additionally, such reconciliation would imply a degree of precision and certainty regarding relevant items that may be confusing to investors. Such items could have a substantial impact on GAAP measures of the Company's financial performance.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain statements that may be deemed “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements that address activities, events or developments that the Company intends, expects, plans, projects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements regarding outlooks, projections, forecasts, trend descriptions, the Company’s ESG strategies (including emissions, energy consumption, water withdrawal, workforce and human capital efforts, other environmental targets, external ESG commitments and operational strategies), the COVID-19 pandemic, go-to-market strategies, operational excellence, acceleration of new product development, end market performance, net sales performance, adjusted operating income and adjusted EBITDA performance, margins, capital expenditure plans, litigation outcomes, capital allocation and growth strategies, restructuring efficiencies and warranty charges. Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions and assessments made by the Company in light of the Company’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments.

Forward-looking statements do not guarantee future performance and are only as of the date they are made. The Company undertakes no duty to update its forward-looking statements except as required by law. Undue reliance should not be placed on any forward-looking statements. You are advised to review any further disclosures the Company makes on related subjects in subsequent Forms 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K and other reports filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
