PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE:CARR), leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2022 and reiterated its full year outlook.

(PRNewsfoto/Carrier)

"Demand for our innovative solutions was strong in the first quarter as customers leverage our differentiated offerings to improve indoor environments and achieve their sustainability goals," said Carrier Chairman & CEO Dave Gitlin. "This drove double-digit organic sales growth and strong adjusted operating margin expansion, both of which exceeded our expectations. We are encouraged by this momentum and confident that key secular trends and our differentiated life-cycle solutions will drive continued strong growth."

First Quarter 2022 Results

Carrier's first quarter sales of $4.7 billion were down 1% compared to the prior year and organic sales grew 10% over the same period. Excluding Chubb sales from the first quarter of 2021, sales were up about 12%. Sales strength continued in the HVAC segment, with North America residential, light commercial, and controls all up over 20% in the quarter. Refrigeration sales were up 1% organically despite the difficult comparison against a record quarter for the Container business in 2021. Sales for the Fire and Security segment were up 4% organically. Excluding Chubb sales from the first quarter of 2021, Fire and Security segment sales were up 8%.

GAAP operating profit in the quarter of $1.7 billion was up over 200% from last year driven by the gain on the sale of Chubb and adjusted operating profit of $650 million was up 7%.  Better than expected price realization helped mitigate continued supply chain challenges related to cost and availability headwinds.  Price/cost was neutral in the first quarter. 

Net income was $1.4 billion and adjusted net income was $473 million. GAAP EPS was $1.58 and adjusted EPS was $0.54. Net cash flows used in operating activities were $202 million and capital expenditures were $56 million, resulting in a free cash outflow of $258 million. The outflow was driven by working capital increases including the normal seasonal inventory build and the impact of supply chain challenges. During the first-quarter, Carrier repurchased $741 million of its common stock, repurchased $1.15 billion of its long-term notes and received $2.9 billion in cash proceeds from the divestiture of Chubb. 

Full-Year 2022 Outlook**
Carrier reaffirmed the following outlook for 2022, excluding the pending Toshiba acquisition:

SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA, NON-GAAP MEASURES AND DEFINITIONS

Following are tables that present selected financial data of Carrier Global Corporation ("Carrier"). Also included are reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to their most comparable GAAP measures.

Use and Definitions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Carrier reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under GAAP with certain non-GAAP financial information.  The non-GAAP information presented provides investors with additional useful information, but should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for the related GAAP measures.  Moreover, other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently, which limits the usefulness of these measures for comparisons with such other companies. We encourage investors to review our financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the corresponding amounts prepared in accordance with GAAP appears in the tables attached to this release. The tables provide additional information as to the items and amounts that have been excluded from the adjusted measures.

Organic sales, adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating margin, incremental margins / earnings conversion, earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share ("EPS"), the adjusted effective tax rate, and net debt are non-GAAP financial measures.

Organic sales represents consolidated net sales (a GAAP measure), excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, acquisitions and divestitures completed in the preceding twelve months and other significant items of a nonoperational nature (hereinafter referred to as "other significant items"). Adjusted operating profit represents operating profit (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs and other significant items.  Adjusted operating margin represents adjusted operating profit as a percentage of net sales (a GAAP measure).  Incremental margins / earnings conversion represents the year-over-year change in adjusted operating profit divided by the year-over-year change in net sales.  EBITDA represents net income attributable to common shareholders (a GAAP measure), adjusted for interest income and expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA, as calculated above, excluding non-service pension benefit, non-controlling interest in subsidiaries' earnings from operations, restructuring costs and other significant items.  Adjusted net income represents net income attributable to common shareowners (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs and other significant items.  Adjusted EPS represents diluted earnings per share (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs and other significant items. The adjusted effective tax rate represents the effective tax rate (a GAAP measure), excluding restructuring costs and other significant items.  Net debt represents long-term debt (a GAAP measure) less cash and cash equivalents.  For the business segments, when applicable, adjustments of operating profit and operating margins represent operating profit, excluding restructuring and other significant items. 

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net cash flows provided by operating activities (a GAAP measure) less capital expenditures.  Management believes free cash flow is a useful measure of liquidity and an additional basis for assessing Carrier's ability to fund its activities, including the financing of acquisitions, debt service, repurchases of Carrier's common stock and distribution of earnings to shareowners.

When we provide our expectations for organic sales, adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating margin, adjusted effective tax rate, incremental margins/earnings conversion, adjusted EPS and free cash flow on a forward-looking basis, a reconciliation of the differences between the non-GAAP expectations and the corresponding GAAP measures (expected net sales, operating profit, operating margin, effective tax rate, incremental operating margin, diluted EPS and net cash flows provided by operating activities) generally is not available without unreasonable effort due to potentially high variability, complexity and low visibility as to the items that would be excluded from the GAAP measure in the relevant future period, such as unusual gains and losses, the ultimate outcome of pending litigation, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, the impact and timing of potential acquisitions and divestitures, future restructuring costs, and other structural changes or their probable significance.  The variability of the excluded items may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP results.
