Evoqua Water Technologies (NYSE:AQUA), an industry leader in mission-critical water treatment solutions, today reported results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2021.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $426.0 million, compared to $383.9 million in the prior year period, an increase of 11.0%, or $42.1 million. Organic revenue grew 9.5%, or $36.4 million, driven by higher volume across multiple product lines and service offerings and enhanced pricing. Foreign currency translation was favorable by 0.8%, or $3.2 million. Net income for the quarter was $26.9 million, resulting in diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.22, as compared to net income of $31.1 million and diluted EPS of $0.26 in the prior year period. The decline in net income of 13.5% as compared to the prior year period was primarily driven by increased operating expenses, including a decrease of $9.6 million in non-cash foreign currency translation gains on intercompany loans, partially offset by lower tax expense. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $81.9 million, as compared to $75.6 million in the prior year period, an increase of 8.3%. See the “Use of Non-GAAP Measures” section below for additional information regarding adjusted EBITDA and organic revenue.

For fiscal 2021, revenue was $1.46 billion, compared to $1.43 billion in the prior year, an increase of 2.4%, or $34.9 million. Organic revenue grew by 1.6%, or $23.1 million, due to the same factors that influenced organic revenue growth in the quarter. Foreign currency translation was favorable by 1.3%, contributing $18.1 million to the increase in revenue. Inorganic revenue declined by 0.4%, or $6.3 million, as the impact of the divestiture of the Memcor product line, which closed in the first quarter of fiscal 2020, offset revenue generated from fiscal 2021 acquisitions. Net income for the year was $51.7 million, resulting in diluted EPS of $0.42, as compared to net income of $114.4 million and diluted EPS of $0.94 in the prior year, a decline of 54.8%, or $62.7 million. Prior year net income included the net pre-tax benefit from the divestiture of the Memcor product line of $57.7 million. Other drivers of the change in net income as compared to the prior year were an increase in operating expenses, including a decrease of $7.7 million in non-cash foreign currency translation gains, primarily related to intercompany loans, and increased employee expenses, which were mostly offset by increased gross profit from higher revenue volume. Adjusted diluted EPS for fiscal 2021 was $0.69 as compared to $0.67 in the prior year, an increase of $0.02. For fiscal 2021, adjusted EBITDA was $250.9 million as compared to $239.6 million in the prior year, an increase of $11.3 million or 4.7%. The increase in adjusted EBITDA was driven primarily by increased sales volume and related gross profit as the Company has favorably navigated the economic uncertainties presented by COVID-19.

“We completed a solid fiscal year with an outstanding fourth quarter performance. I am very proud of our team’s accomplishments as we navigated an unprecedented two-year period of managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, organic revenue growth has been resilient, gross profit margin has improved, price/cost has been positive, cash flow has grown, the balance sheet has strengthened, and investments in the business continued and backlog increased substantially. Our business strategy has proven resilient, and we continue to make great progress on our sustainability journey with improved ESG scores from prominent rating agencies. We are also pleased, at this time, to announce our two new sustainability goals: recycle and reuse more water than we withdraw by 2035 and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050,” said Mr. Ron Keating, Evoqua’s CEO.

Mr. Keating continued, “Our fourth quarter organic revenue grew 9.5%, driven by strong service, capital and aftermarket volume, as well as pricing actions offsetting cost inflation. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter grew 8.3% to $81.9 million and our net leverage ratio was reduced to 2.5x adjusted EBITDA, achieving the low end of our target range.”

Mr. Keating stated, “Our book-to-bill ratio for the fiscal year was near 1.1, resulting in a growing backlog, as customer demand continues to be strong across the majority of our end markets. We continue to see significant growth opportunities, both organic and inorganic, as we enter the new year. Supply chain challenges are expected to impact material availability and visibility during the coming year, however, we expect price/cost for fiscal year 2022 to be positive. Skilled labor shortages and inflation pressures are expected to remain through the next six to twelve months, and given this uncertainty, we are providing guidance for fiscal 2022 in a balanced manner. For the full year, we expect revenues to be $1.50 to $1.58 billion and adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $255 to $275 million, an increase of 2% to 8% and 2% to 10%, respectively.”

Fourth Quarter Segment Results

Evoqua has two reportable operating segments - Integrated Solutions and Services and Applied Product Technologies. The results of our segments for the fourth quarter are as follows:

Integrated Solutions and Services

Segment revenue increased by $31.9 million, or 12.8%, to $281.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $249.5 million in the prior year period.

  • Service and aftermarket revenue increased by $11.1 million and $8.7 million, respectively, driven by higher volume and enhanced by favorable pricing.
  • Capital revenue increased by $12.1 million. Increased volume from projects in the chemical processing industry offset declines from projects in the microelectronics end market.

Operating profit increased by $9.2 million, or 21.3%, to $52.4 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $43.2 million in the prior year period.

  • Segment profitability increased by $12.2 million due to higher sales volume, favorable price/cost and productivity improvements.
  • Higher employee related expenses driven by higher labor costs, partially offset by subsidies received from the Canadian government related to the COVID-19 pandemic, decreased profitability by $1.5 million. Higher travel and discretionary spending decreased profitability by $0.5 million.
  • Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $1.5 million.
  • Restructuring and other non-recurring expense decreased by $0.5 million.

Segment adjusted EBITDA increased by $10.2 million, or 16.9%, to $70.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $60.3 million in the prior year period. The increase in segment adjusted EBITDA resulted from the same factors that impacted operating profit, other than the change in depreciation and amortization. Segment adjusted EBITDA also excludes restructuring and other non-recurring activity recognized in the period. See the “Use of Non-GAAP Measures” section below for a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to segment operating profit.

Applied Product Technologies

Segment revenue increased by $10.2 million, or 7.6%, to $144.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $134.4 million in the prior year period.

  • Revenue increased across multiple product lines and all regions, driven by higher volume and favorable pricing.
  • Foreign currency translation favorably impacted revenue by $2.4 million.

Operating profit increased by $4.9 million, or 20.6%, to $28.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $23.8 million in the prior year period.

  • Segment profitability increased by $3.3 million due to revenue volume, favorable price/cost and product mix, partially offset by unfavorable operational variances, including capital project variances and supply chain challenges.
  • Higher employee related expenses reduced segment profitability by $3.7 million, driven by higher labor costs and increased travel spending.
  • Lower restructuring and other non-recurring costs increased operating profit by $4.5 million, as well as non-recurrence of activity related to the divestiture of the Memcor product line in the prior year period of $0.3 million.
  • Depreciation and amortization expense increased by $0.3 million.
  • Foreign currency translation favorably impacted segment profitability by $0.8 million.

Segment adjusted EBITDA increased by $0.4 million, or 1.2%, to $33.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to $32.7 million in the prior year period. The change in segment adjusted EBITDA was driven by the same factors that impacted segment operating profit, other than the change in depreciation and amortization. Segment adjusted EBITDA also excludes restructuring and other non-recurring activity. See the “Use of Non-GAAP Measures” section below for a reconciliation of segment adjusted EBITDA to segment operating profit.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide users of the Company's financial information with additional useful information in evaluating operating performance. We use the non-GAAP financial measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, organic revenue and net leverage ratio in evaluating the strength and financial performance of our core business.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense), and depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain other items, including restructuring and related business transformation costs, share-based compensation, transaction costs, and other gains, losses and expenses that we believe do not directly reflect our underlying business operations.

Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary metrics used by management to evaluate the financial performance of our business. We present adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate and compare operating performance and value companies within our industry. Further, we believe it is helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results and provides greater clarity and comparability period over period to management and our investors regarding the operational impact of long-term strategic decisions relating to capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which we operate and capital investments. In addition, adjusted EBITDA highlights true business performance by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect our underlying operations and provides investors with greater visibility into the ongoing organic drivers of our business performance.

Management uses adjusted EBITDA to supplement GAAP measures of performance as follows:

  • to assist investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance;
  • in our management incentive compensation, which is based in part on components of adjusted EBITDA;
  • in certain calculations under our senior secured credit facilities, which use components of adjusted EBITDA;
  • to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies;
  • to make budgeting decisions; and
  • to compare our performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures.

In addition to the above, our chief operating decision maker uses adjusted EBITDA of each reportable operating segment to evaluate the operating performance of such segments. Adjusted EBITDA on a segment basis is defined as earnings before depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain other items that have been reflected at the segment level. Adjusted EBITDA of the reportable operating segments do not include certain charges that are presented within corporate activities. These charges include certain restructuring and other business transformation charges that have been incurred to align and reposition the Company to the current reporting structure, acquisition related costs (including transaction costs and integration costs) and share-based compensation charges.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations from these results included below should be carefully evaluated. You are encouraged to evaluate each adjustment and the reasons we consider it appropriate for supplemental analysis. In addition, in evaluating adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future, we may incur expenses similar to the adjustments in the presentation of adjusted EBITDA. Our presentation of adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies in our industry or across different industries.

With respect to our guidance, we have not presented a quantitative reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net income, because it is impractical to forecast certain items without unreasonable efforts due to the uncertainty and inherent difficulty of predicting the occurrence and financial impact of, and the periods in which, such items, including foreign exchange impact and certain expenses for which we adjust, may be recognized. For the same reasons, we are unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to future results.

The following is a reconciliation of our net income to adjusted EBITDA (unaudited):

(a)

  Restructuring and related business transformation costs
   
  Adjusted EBITDA is calculated prior to considering certain restructuring or business transformation events. These events may occur over extended periods of time, and in some cases it is reasonably possible that they could reoccur in future periods based on reorganizations of the business, cost reduction or productivity improvement needs, or in response to economic conditions. For the periods presented such events include the following:
     
 

(i)

  Certain costs and expenses in connection with various restructuring initiatives, including severance and other employee-related costs, relocation and facility consolidation costs and third-party consultant costs to assist with these initiatives. This includes:
       
   

(A)

 

amounts related to the Company’s restructuring initiatives to reduce the cost structure and rationalize location footprint following the sale of the Memcor product line;

       
   

(B)

 

amounts related to the Company’s transition from a three-segment structure to a two-segment operating model designed to better serve the needs of customers worldwide; and

       
   

(C)

 

amounts related to various other initiatives implemented to restructure and reorganize our business with the appropriate management team and cost structure.

Adjusted EBITDA on a segment basis is defined as earnings before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense) and depreciation and amortization, adjusted for the impact of certain other items that have been reflected at the segment level. We do not present net income on a segment basis because we do not allocate interest expense or income tax benefit (expense) to our segments, making operating profit the most comparable GAAP metric. The following is a reconciliation of our segment operating profit to our segment adjusted EBITDA:

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are additional metrics used by management to evaluate the performance of our business. Adjusted net income is defined as net income adjusted for the impact of certain items, including restructuring and related business transformation costs, share-based compensation, transaction costs, and other gains, losses and expenses that we believe do not directly reflect our underlying business operations. Adjusted EPS is defined as adjusted net income on a per share basis, presented as both adjusted basic EPS and adjusted diluted EPS. Management believes that reporting adjusted net income and adjusted EPS provides useful information to investors by removing the impact of certain items that management believes do not directly reflect our underlying operations.

The following is a reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income and earnings per share for the year ended September 30, 2021.

Organic Revenue

Organic revenue is another metric used by management to evaluate the performance of our business. Organic revenue is defined as revenue excluding the impact of foreign currency translation and inorganic revenue. Inorganic revenue represents the impact from acquisitions and divestitures during the first 12 months following the closing of the acquisition or divestiture. Divestitures include sales of insignificant portions of our business that did not meet the criteria for classification as a discontinued operation. Management believes that reporting organic revenue provides useful information to investors by helping identify underlying growth trends in our core business and facilitating easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We exclude the effect of foreign currency translation from organic sales because foreign currency translation is not under management’s control, is subject to volatility and can obscure underlying business trends. We exclude the effect of acquisitions and divestitures because they can obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult between the Company and its peers due to the varying nature, size and number of transactions from period to period.

The following is a reconciliation of total revenue to organic revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.
