·16 min read

- Conference Call Scheduled for 9 a.m. EDT Today -

EXTON, Pa., July 28, 2022  /PRNewswire/ -- West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST) today announced its financial results for the second-quarter 2022 and updated full-year 2022 financial guidance.

(PRNewsfoto/West Pharmaceutical Services, I)

Second-Quarter 2022 Summary (comparisons to prior-year period)

  • Net sales of $771.3 million grew 6.6%; organic net sales growth was 13.1%.

  • Reported-diluted EPS of $2.48, compared to $2.47 in the same period last year.

  • Adjusted-diluted EPS of $2.47, compared to $2.46 in the same period last year.

  • The Company is updating full-year 2022 net sales guidance to a range of $2.950 billion to $2.975 billion, compared to a prior range of $3.050 billion to $3.075 billion, to reflect changes in foreign currency rates and a decline in expected COVID-19 related net sales.

  • The Company is updating full-year 2022 adjusted-diluted EPS guidance to a new range of $9.00 to $9.15, compared to a prior range of $9.30 to $9.45.

"We delivered excellent second-quarter results with Proprietary Products organic net sales growth in the high-teens, led by demand for our high-value products (HVPs)," said Eric M. Green, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Board. "Our base business continues to be strong, reflecting our team's successful execution of strategic initiatives and dedication to improving patient lives.  In the quarter, COVID-19 related net sales slightly declined.  While we expect further declines in COVID-19 related demand over the next two quarters, we also anticipate a more robust base business.  We remain on track to expand our global HVP manufacturing capacity to support increased demand across our Biologics, Generics and Pharma market units."

Proprietary Products Segment
Net sales grew by 11.3% to $653.7 million.  Organic net sales growth was 18.3%, with currency translation decreasing sales growth by 700 basis points.  HVP sales represented over 70% of segment sales and generated double-digit organic sales growth, led by customer demand for NovaPure®, Envision® and Daikyo Crystal Zenith® components and for self-injection devices.

The Biologics and Generics market units had double-digit organic sales growth, and the Pharma market unit had mid-single digit organic sales growth.

Contract-Manufactured Products Segment
Net sales declined by 13.6% to $117.8 million.  Organic net sales declined by 8.9% with currency translation decreasing sales growth by 470 basis points.  Segment sales declined primarily due to a decrease in sales of components for diagnostic devices.

Financial Highlights (first six months of 2022)
Operating cash flow was $324.3 million, an increase of 39.1%. Capital expenditures were $131.9 million, an increase of 18.2% over the same period last year.  Free cash flow (operating cash flow minus capital expenditures) was $192.4 million, an increase of 58.4%.

During the first-half 2022, the Company repurchased 476,667 shares for $175.7 million at an average share price of $368.54 under its share repurchase program.

Full-Year 2022 Financial Guidance

  • Full-year 2022 net sales are expected to be in the range of $2.950 billion to $2.975 billion, compared to a prior guidance range of $3.050 billion to $3.075 billion.

  • Full-year 2022 adjusted-diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $9.00 to $9.15, compared to a prior guidance range of $9.30 to $9.45.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These statements may include such words as, "expect," "anticipate," "remain," "assume," "guidance," "outlook," "potential," "estimate," "will," "would," and other similar terminology.  These statements reflect management's current expectations regarding future events and operating performance and speak only as of the date of this release.  There is no certainty that actual results will be achieved in-line with current expectations.  These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties.  The following are some of the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or underlying our forward-looking statements: the duration and severity of the global COVID-19 pandemic, including prevailing economic conditions and general uncertainties relating thereto that may be unknown and unforeseeable; customers' changing inventory requirements and manufacturing plans and customer decisions to move forward with our new products and product categories, including any re-prioritization of product needs due to COVID-19; other potential impacts from COVID-19, including interruptions or weaknesses in our supply chain, illness in our workforce and access to transport for our products; average profitability, or mix, of the products we sell; dependence on third-party suppliers and partners; increased raw material costs; fluctuations in currency exchange; and the ability to meet development milestones with key customers.  This list of important factors is not all inclusive. For a description of certain additional factors that could cause the Company's future results to differ from those expressed in any such forward-looking statements, see Part I Item 1A , entitled "Risk Factors," in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Except as required by law or regulation, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures
This release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including organic net sales and adjusted-diluted EPS. For the purpose of aiding the comparison of our year-over-year results, we may refer to net sales and other financial results excluding the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.  Organic net sales exclude the impact from acquisitions and/or divestitures and translate the current-period reported sales of subsidiaries whose functional currency is other than the U.S. Dollar at the applicable foreign currency exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior-year period.  We may also refer to financial results excluding the effects of unallocated items.  The re-measured results excluding effects from currency translation and excluding the effects of unallocated items are not in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP") and should not be used as a substitute for the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.  The non-U.S. GAAP financial measures are incorporated into our discussion and analysis as management uses them in evaluating our results of operations and believes that this information provides users a valuable insight into our overall performance and financial position.  A reconciliation of these adjusted non-U.S. GAAP measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures is included in the accompanying tables.

(6)       

We have opted not to forecast 2022 tax benefits from stock-based compensation in upcoming quarters, as they are out of the Company's control.  Instead, we recognize the benefits as they occur.  In the first-half of 2022, tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation increased adjusted-diluted EPS by $0.13.  Any future tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation that we receive in 2022 would provide a positive adjustment to our full-year EPS guidance.  In full-year 2021, tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation increased adjusted-diluted EPS by $0.41.
