Harsco Corporation (NYSE: HSC) today reported third quarter 2022 results. On a U.S. GAAP ("GAAP") basis, third quarter of 2022 diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.01. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2022 were $0.10. These figures compare with third quarter of 2021 GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.06 and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.15.

GAAP operating income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2022 was $30 million. Adjusted EBITDA was $70 million in the quarter, compared to the Company's previously provided guidance range of $54 million to $59 million.

“Harsco delivered solid third quarter results, reinforcing our position as a leading provider of recycling and reuse solutions within the industrial waste market,” said Chairman and CEO Nick Grasberger. “In the Clean Earth segment, we made tremendous progress during the quarter to boost overall performance and drive margins by focusing on key initiatives. These benefits offset external challenges within Harsco Environmental and support our improved guidance.

“Looking further to the future, the outlook for each of our businesses is promising. There is tremendous opportunity for additional improvements in CE that will further lift margins, while Harsco Environmental’s competitive position has never been stronger. HE continues to differentiate itself through best-in-class service and safety as well as innovation. Concerning the divestiture of our Rail business, we continue to manage the supply chain and inflationary impacts on a few large international contracts. Such efforts should reduce the economic risks of these contracts and facilitate the sale of the business. Overall, we’re confident that continued execution against our strategic initiatives and business growth, along with our focus on deleveraging the business and stronger cash flow, will deliver sustained value creation for our stakeholders over time.”

Consolidated Third Quarter Operating Results

Consolidated revenues from continuing operations were $487 million, an increase of 4 percent compared with the prior-year quarter. Clean Earth realized an increase in revenues compared to the second quarter of 2021 while Environmental revenues decreased due to currency translation impacts. Foreign currency translation negatively impacted third quarter 2022 revenues by approximately $24 million (5 percent), compared with the prior-year period.

The Company's GAAP operating income from continuing operations was $30 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared with GAAP operating income of $27 million in the same quarter of 2021. Meanwhile, adjusted EBITDA totaled $70 million in the third quarter of 2022 versus $68 million in the third quarter of the prior year. Clean Earth experienced higher adjusted EBITDA relative to the prior-year quarter, while Environmental's adjusted EBITDA was below the comparable quarter of 2021.

Third Quarter Business ReviewEnvironmental

($ in millions)   Q3 2022   Q3 2021
Revenues   $ 265     $ 270  
Operating income - GAAP   $ 22     $ 28  
Adjusted EBITDA - Non GAAP   $ 51     $ 56  
Adjusted EBITDA margin - Non GAAP     19.1 %     20.7 %

Environmental revenues totaled $265 million in the third quarter of 2022, an decrease of 2 percent compared with the prior-year quarter. This change is attributable to FX translation impacts, partially offset by higher ecoproductsTM volumes and services activity at certain sites. The segment's GAAP operating income and adjusted EBITDA totaled $22 million and $51 million, respectively, in the third quarter of 2022. These figures compare with GAAP operating income of $28 million and adjusted EBITDA of $56 million in the prior-year period. The year-on-year change in adjusted earnings reflects the above-mentioned FX impacts as well as lower commodity prices, operating cost inflation, and fewer asset sales relative to the prior-year quarter.

Clean Earth

($ in millions)   Q3 2022   Q3 2021
Revenues   $ 222     $ 200  
Operating income (loss) - GAAP   $ 17     $ 10  
Adjusted EBITDA - Non GAAP   $ 28     $ 21  
Adjusted EBITDA margin - Non GAAP     12.7 %     10.2 %

Clean Earth revenues totaled $222 million in the third quarter of 2022, an 11 percent increase over the prior-year quarter as a result of higher services pricing and volume growth from retail and industrial customers. The segment's GAAP operating income was $17 million and adjusted EBITDA was $28 million in the third quarter of 2022. These figures compare with $10 million of operating income and $21 million of adjusted EBITDA in the prior-year period. The year-on-year improvement in adjusted earnings resulted from price increases as well as cost reductions and operational efficiencies. These benefits were partially offset by inflationary impacts. As a result, Clean Earth's adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 12.7 percent in the third quarter of 2022 versus 10.2 percent in the comparable quarter of 2021.

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities was $13 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared with net cash provided by operating activities of $33 million in the prior-year period. Free cash flow (excluding Rail) was $(31) million in the third quarter of 2022, compared with $2 million in the prior-year period. The change in free cash flow compared with the prior-year quarter is attributable to working capital changes, exclusive of account receivable securitization (some of which is timing related) as well as higher net capital spending and cash interest payments.

2022 Outlook

The Company has increased the mid-point of its 2022 adjusted EBITDA guidance to reflect an improved outlook for Clean Earth, partially offset by lower expectations for Environmental. Key drivers compared with prior guidance include the following; (1) Clean Earth: benefits from improvement initiatives and higher margins; and (2) Environmental: negative impacts from FX translation as well as lower service and ecoproductsTM volumes, which are largely attributable to the energy-crisis in Europe and rising interest rates. Summary Outlook highlights are as follows:

In accordance with the "safe harbor" provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company provides the following cautionary remarks regarding important factors that, among others, could cause future results to differ materially from the results contemplated by forward-looking statements, including the expectations and assumptions expressed or implied herein. Forward-looking statements contained herein could include, among other things, statements about management's confidence in and strategies for performance; expectations for new and existing products, technologies and opportunities; and expectations regarding growth, sales, cash flows, and earnings.

A further discussion of these, along with other potential risk factors, can be found in Part II, Item 1A “Risk Factors,” of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022, and Part I, Item 1A, "Risk Factors," of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021. The Company cautions that these factors may not be exhaustive and that many of these factors are beyond the Company's ability to control or predict. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results. The Company undertakes no duty to update forward-looking statements except as may be required by law.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Measurements of financial performance not calculated in accordance with GAAP should be considered as supplements to, and not substitutes for, performance measurements calculated or derived in accordance with GAAP. Any such measures are not necessarily comparable to other similarly-titled measurements employed by other companies.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share: Adjusted diluted earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial measure and consists of diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations adjusted for unusual items and acquisition-related intangible asset amortization expense. 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. The Company’s management believes Adjusted diluted earnings per share 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.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and consists of income from continuing operations adjusted to add back income tax expense; equity income of unconsolidated entities, net; net interest expense; defined benefit pension income (expense); facility fees and debt-related income (expense); and depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs); and excludes unusual items. Segment Adjusted EBITDA consists of operating income from continuing operations adjusted to exclude unusual items and add back depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs). The sum of the Segments’ Adjusted EBITDA and Corporate Adjusted EBITDA equals consolidated Adjusted EBITDA. The Company‘s management believes Adjusted EBITDA is meaningful to investors because management reviews Adjusted EBITDA in assessing and evaluating performance.

Free cash flow: Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and consists of net cash provided (used) by operating activities less capital expenditures and expenditures for intangible assets; and plus capital expenditures for strategic ventures, total proceeds from sales of assets and certain transaction-related / debt-refinancing expenditures. The Company's management believes that Free cash flow is meaningful to investors because management reviews Free cash flow for planning and performance evaluation purposes. It is important to note that Free cash flow does not represent the total residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since other non-discretionary expenditures, such as mandatory debt service requirements and settlements of foreign currency forward exchange contracts, are not deducted from this measure. Free cash flow excludes the former Harsco Rail Segment since the segment is reported as discontinued operations. This presentation provides a basis for comparison of ongoing operations and prospects.
