On a U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") basis, first quarter of 2021 diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.02 including a loss on the debt refinancing. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2021 were $0.15. These figures compare with first quarter of 2020 GAAP diluted loss per share from continuing operations of $0.11 and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.16. GAAP operating income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $25 million.

We look forward to continuing our business transformation and positioning Harsco to pursue growth and to drive enhanced value for shareholders in the future.” Harsco Corporation—Selected First Quarter Results ($ in millions, except per share amounts) Q1 2021 Q1 2020 Q4 2020Revenues $529 $399 $508 Operating income from continuing operations - GAAP $25 $3 $11 Diluted EPS from continuing operations - GAAP $0.02 $(0.11) $(0.07)Adjusted EBITDA - excluding unusual items $66 $57 $62 Adjusted EBITDA margin - excluding unusual items 12.4% 14.4% 12.3%Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations - excluding unusual items $0.15 $0.16 $0.12 Note: Adjusted earnings per share and adjusted EBITDA details presented throughout this release are adjusted for unusual items; in addition, adjusted earnings per share details are adjusted for acquisition-related amortization expense. Consolidated First Quarter Operating Results Consolidated total revenues from continuing operations were $529 million, an increase of 33 percent compared with the prior-year quarter due to the acquisition of ESOL in April 2020 as well as revenue growth in Environmental and Rail. Foreign currency translation positively impacted first quarter 2021 revenues by approximately $9 million compared with the prior-year period. GAAP operating income from continuing operations was $25 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared with $3 million in the same quarter of last year. Meanwhile, adjusted EBITDA totaled $66 million in the first quarter of 2021 versus $57 million in the first quarter of 2020. This EBITDA increase is attributable to improved results in the Environmental segment as well as ESOL contributions to the Clean Earth segment following its acquisition in Q2 2020. First Quarter Business Review Environmental ($ in millions) Q1 2021 Q1 2020 Q4 2020Revenues $258 $242 $246 Operating income - GAAP $26 $11 $23 Adjusted EBITDA - excluding unusual items $54 $43 $52 Adjusted EBITDA margin - excluding unusual items 20.8% 17.8% 21.2% Environmental revenues totaled $258 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 7 percent compared with the prior-year quarter. This increase is attributable to improved demand for environmental services and applied products as well as favorable foreign exchange movements. The segment's GAAP operating income and adjusted EBITDA totaled $26 million and $54 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2021. These figures compare with GAAP operating income of $11 million and adjusted EBITDA of $43 million in the prior-year period. Higher demand, a more favorable mix of services and lower general and administrative spending contributed to the improvement in adjusted earnings. Results also benefited from the recovery of Brazil sales tax expenses, totaling approximately $2 million, which were not anticipated in the quarter. Lastly, Environmental's adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 20.8 percent in the first quarter of 2021 versus 17.8 percent in the comparable-quarter of 2020. Clean Earth ($ in millions) Q1 2021 Q1 2020 Q4 2020Revenues $189 $79 $185 Operating income - GAAP $3 $4 $3 Adjusted EBITDA - excluding unusual items $15 $11 $16 Adjusted EBITDA margin - excluding unusual items 7.7% 13.7% 8.6% Note: The 2020 financial information provided above and discussed below for Clean Earth does not include a corporate cost allocation for ESOL. Clean Earth revenues totaled $189 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared with $79 million in the prior-year quarter, with the increase attributable to the ESOL acquisition in Q2 2020. Segment operating income was $3 million and adjusted EBITDA totaled $15 million in the first quarter of 2021. These figures compare with $4 million and $11 million, respectively, in the prior-year period. The improvement in adjusted earnings relative to the prior-year quarter can be attributed to ESOL's contributions in the current year. This benefit was partially offset by personnel investments to support the full integration of the Clean Earth platform and other administrative expenses, some which will not occur beyond 2021, as well as lower services demand and a less favorable business mix principally within the contaminated materials business as a result of the pandemic. Rail ($ in millions) Q1 2021 Q1 2020 Q4 2020Revenues $82 $78 $77 Operating income (loss) - GAAP $5 $6 $1 Adjusted EBITDA - excluding unusual items $6 $8 $3 Adjusted EBITDA margin - excluding unusual items 7.3% 9.9% 3.3% Rail revenues increased 4 percent compared with the prior-year quarter to $82 million. This change reflects higher equipment and contract services revenues, partially offset by lower aftermarket parts sales. The segment's operating income and adjusted EBITDA totaled $5 million and $6 million, respectively, in the first quarter of 2021. These figures compare with $6 million and $8 million, respectively, in the prior-year quarter. The EBITDA change year-on-year is attributable to lower aftermarket parts contribution as well as a less favorable sales mix. Cash Flow Net cash used by operating activities totaled $23 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared with net cash used by operating activities of $12 million in the prior-year period. Free cash flow was $(32) million in the first quarter of 2021, compared with $(26) million in the prior-year period. The change in free cash flow compared with the prior-year quarter is attributable to changes in net cash from operating activities, including the impact of higher interest payments linked to the ESOL acquisition and the timing of working capital items, partially offset by lower net capital spending. 2021 Outlook The Company's has increased its 2021 guidance to reflect business momentum and improved visibility in each of its businesses, relative to the outlook provided with the Company's fourth quarter 2020 results. Comments by business segments are as follows: Environmental outlook is improved to reflect higher services and applied products demand, increased commodity prices and lower administrative spending. For the year, the primary drivers for an increase in adjusted EBITDA compared with 2020 are expected to be favorable demand for underlying services and products as well as higher commodity prices. Clean Earth outlook is improved to reflect increasing demand for hazardous waste processing services and stronger margin performance. For the year, adjusted EBITDA is projected to increase due to the full-year impact of ESOL ownership, underlying organic growth for hazardous material services and integration benefits, partially offset by an additional allocation of Corporate costs and investments which include various one-time expenditures. Further, performance in the contaminated materials line of business is expected to strengthen in the coming quarters as a result of favorable trends within regional non-residential construction markets. Rail outlook is improved principally as a result of strengthening demand for rail maintenance equipment as well as aftermarket parts, including in Asia. For the year, the primary drivers for an increase in adjusted EBITDA versus 2020 remain higher anticipated demand for equipment and technology products as well as higher contract services contributions. Lastly, Corporate spending is expected to range from $36 million to $37 million for the year.

The Company’s management believes Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is useful to investors because it provides an overall understanding of the Company’s historical and future prospects. Exclusion of unusual items permits evaluation and comparison of results for the Company’s core business operations, and it is on this basis that management internally assesses the Company’s performance. Exclusion of acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense, the amount of which can vary by the timing, size and nature of the Company’s acquisitions, facilitates more consistent internal comparisons of operating results over time between the Company’s newly acquired and long-held businesses, and comparisons with both acquisitive and non-acquisitive peer companies. It is important to note that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible asset amortization related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. This measure should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, other information provided in accordance with GAAP.

It is important to note that such intangible assets contribute to revenue generation and that intangible asset amortization related to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. This measure should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, other information provided in accordance with GAAP.
