Item 2.02.  Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Management of Worthington Industries, Inc. (the “Registrant”) conducted a conference call on June 24, 2021, beginning at approximately 9:30 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time, to discuss the Registrant’s unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 (the fiscal quarter ended May 31, 2021) and for fiscal 2021 (the fiscal year ended May 31, 2021).  Additionally, the Registrant’s management addressed certain issues related to the outlook for the Registrant and its subsidiaries and their respective markets for the coming months.  A copy of the transcript of the conference call is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information contained in this Item 2.02 and in Exhibit 99.1 furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K, is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, unless the Registrant specifically states that the information is to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or incorporates the information by reference into a filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act.

In the conference call, management referred to adjusted quarterly earnings per share and adjusted operating income.  These represent non-GAAP financial measures and are used by management as measures of operating performance.  In general, these measures exclude impairment and restructuring charges, but may also exclude other items that management does not believe reflect the Registrant’s core operations.

The following provides a reconciliation from the most comparable GAAP financial measures to adjusted operating income and adjusted earnings per diluted share, respectively, for the periods presented.

In the conference call, management referred to free cash flow for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and for the full fiscal year (twelve months) ended May 31, 2021.  Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that reflects the cash generated from operations after investing in property, plant and equipment. Management believes this measure reflects the discretionary cash generated by the Registrant's business operations.  The following provides a reconciliation from the most comparable GAAP financial measures of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow for the three-month and twelve-month periods ended May 31, 2021.

In the conference call, management referred to adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) for the Registrant’s fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and the Registrant’s trailing 12-month adjusted EBITDA (i.e., the Registrant’s adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2021).  These represent non-GAAP financial measures and are used by management as a measure of operating performance.  EBITDA is calculated by adding or subtracting, as appropriate, interest expense, income tax expense (benefit) and depreciation and amortization to or from, as appropriate, net earnings (loss) attributable to controlling interest.  Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding or subtracting, as appropriate, impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets, restructuring and other expense, net, incremental expenses related to Nikola gains and (gains) loss on investment in Nikola (each pre-tax) to/from EBITDA.  The reconciliation from the GAAP-based financial measure of net earnings (loss) attributable to controlling interest to the non-GAAP financial measure of adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter and the full fiscal year ended May 31, 2021, as mentioned in the conference call, is outlined below.
