“We again delivered record adjusted earnings per share, led by exceptional results in our Steel Processing segment,” said Andy Rose, President and CEO.  “We had solid demand across our major end markets but also continued to face challenges with customer shut-downs due to semi-conductor and other parts shortages, labor availability, and tight supply chains which prevented the quarter from being even better.”

Consolidated Quarterly Results

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 were $1.1 billion compared to $702.9 million, an increase of 58% over the comparable quarter in the prior year. The increase was driven primarily by higher average direct selling prices in Steel Processing.

Gross margin increased $106.0 million over the prior year quarter to $219.4 million, primarily due to improved direct spreads in Steel Processing and, to a lesser extent, higher overall volume.

Operating income for the current quarter was $135.8 million, an increase of $165.9 million over the operating loss in the prior year quarter. Excluding impairment and restructuring charges in both quarters and the impact of Nikola in the prior year quarter, operating income was $123.5 million for the current quarter, an increase of $92.4 million over the prior year quarter, as the impact of higher gross margin was partially offset by higher SG&A expense, up $13.7 million, on higher profit sharing and bonus expense.

Interest expense was relatively flat at $7.7 million for the current quarter, compared to $7.6 million in the prior year quarter.

Equity income from unconsolidated joint ventures increased $29.3 million over the prior year quarter to $52.9 million, driven by higher contributions from ClarkDietrich, WAVE, and Serviacero, where results benefited from higher steel prices. The Company received cash distributions of $19.7 million from unconsolidated joint ventures during the quarter.

Income tax expense was $40.2 million in the current quarter compared to $163.8 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease was due to lower pre-tax earnings, driven by the gains on our investment in Nikola in the prior year quarter. Tax expense in the current quarter reflects an estimated annual effective rate of 23.3% compared to 21.6% for the prior year quarter.

Balance Sheet

At quarter-end, total debt of $706.4 million was down slightly from May 31, 2021, and the Company had cash of $399.2 million, a decrease of $241.1 million from year-end primarily due to the acquisition of certain assets of Shiloh Industries and the increase in working capital as the price of steel continued to rise throughout the quarter.

Quarterly Segment Results

Effective June 1, 2021, the Company reorganized the management structure of Pressure Cylinders to better align around end markets, resulting in three new reportable operating segments: Consumer Products, Building Products, and Sustainable Energy Solutions. The divested businesses historically reported within Pressure Cylinders are not included in the new management structure but are presented within the Other category. Our Steel Processing operating segment was not impacted by these changes. In addition, beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 2022, we began assessing segment performance based on adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (“adjusted EBIT”). See the supplemental financial data attached below for further information regarding this new segment profit measure.

Steel Processing’s net sales totaled $822.8 million, up $391.8 million, from the comparable prior year quarter. The increase in net sales was driven by higher average selling prices and, to a lesser extent, higher volume. Adjusted EBIT of $107.7 million was up $93.5 million, as operating income increased $86.3 million after adjusting for the impact of restructuring in both the current and prior year quarters. The increase resulted primarily from improved direct spreads, which benefited from significant inventory holding gains, estimated to be $47.1 million in the current quarter compared to a loss of $6.8 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBIT in the current quarter also benefited from higher equity earnings at Serviacero, up $8.0 million on the impact of higher steel prices. The mix of direct versus toll tons processed was unchanged at 49% to 51%.

Consumer Products’ net sales totaled $147.8 million, up 10.6%, or $14.2 million, from the comparable prior year quarter driven by the acquisition of General Tools & Instruments in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBIT of $20.6 million was down $3.4 million from the prior year quarter due to an increase in profit sharing and bonus expense and, to a lesser extent, compressed margins resulting from higher input costs.

Building Products’ net sales totaled $114.7 million, up 30.2%, or $26.6 million, from the comparable prior year quarter due to higher volume and a favorable product mix. Adjusted EBIT of $48.8 million was $25.4 million more than the prior year quarter, due primarily to higher equity earnings at WAVE and ClarkDietrich, up $20.4 million on strong volume and the favorable impact of higher steel prices. Excluding impairment and restructuring charges, operating income was up $4.9 million on the combined impact of improved volume and a favorable shift in product mix, partially offset by an increase in profit sharing and bonus expense. Volume in the prior year quarter was at depressed levels due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Sustainable Energy Solutions’ net sales totaled $25.5 million, down 8.5%, or $2.4 million, from the comparable prior year quarter on lower volume. Adjusted EBIT was a loss of $2.6 million, unfavorable $2.0 million to the prior year quarter, on the combined impact of lower volume and an unfavorable product mix. Both volume and mix in the current quarter were negatively impacted by the ongoing semi-conductor chip shortage.

Recent Developments

  • On June 8, 2021, the Company acquired certain assets of Shiloh Industries' U.S. BlankLight® business, a provider of laser welded solutions, for approximately $105 million, subject to closing adjustments. The acquisition included three facilities that will expand the capacity and capabilities of TWB’s laser welded products business and an additional blanking facility that will support the Company’s core steel processing operations.
  • On June 9, 2021, the Company’s consolidated joint venture, WSP, sold the remaining assets of its Canton, Mich., facility for approximately $20 million resulting in a pre-tax restructuring gain of $12.1 million. WSP continues to operate locations in Jackson and Taylor, Michigan.
  • On Aug. 20, 2021, the Company amended and restated its existing five-year, revolving credit facility, extending the maturity to August 20, 2026. The aggregate commitments under the amended and restated revolving credit facility remain at $500 million.
  • During the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company repurchased a total of 1,000,000 of its common shares for $60.9 million, at an average purchase price of $60.87.

Outlook

“The Company is performing well, and while demand from our major end markets remains healthy, we will likely continue to face labor challenges and be impacted by lower automotive demand due to the ongoing semi-conductor shortage,” Rose said.   “Despite this, we are off to a great start for fiscal 2022 and I’m confident our teams will continue to navigate these challenges and deliver for our customers."

WORTHINGTON INDUSTRIES, INC.NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES / SUPPLEMENTAL DATA(In thousands, except volume and per share amounts)

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The Company also presents adjusted operating income and adjusted net earnings per diluted share attributable to controlling interest, which generally exclude impairment and restructuring charges as well as other items that management believes are not reflective of, and thus should not be included when evaluating the performance of its ongoing operations. Additionally, the Company presents adjusted operating income and adjusted earnings before interest and taxes attributable to controlling interest for purposes of evaluating segment performance. These represent non-GAAP financial measures and are used by management to evaluate the Company’s performance, engage in financial and operational planning and determine incentive compensation because it believes that these measures provide additional perspective and, in some circumstances are more closely correlated to, the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations.

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