Applied Industrial Technologies Reports Fiscal 2022 First Quarter Results

•Net Sales of $891.7 Million Up 19.2% YoY; Up 16.3% on an Organic Basis
•Net Income of $53.0 Million, or $1.36 Per Share; EBITDA of $88.5 Million
•Operating Cash Flow of $48.6 Million; Free Cash Flow of $45.0 Million
•Fiscal 2022 Guidance Maintained Including EPS of $5.00 to $5.40

CLEVELAND, OHIO (October 27, 2021) - Applied Industrial Technologies (NYSE: AIT), a leading value-added distributor and technical solutions provider of industrial motion, fluid power, flow control, automation technologies, and related maintenance supplies, today reported results for its fiscal 2022 first quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Net sales for the quarter increased 19.2% to $891.7 million from $747.8 million in the prior year. The change includes a 2.1% increase from acquisitions and a 0.8% increase from foreign currency translation. Excluding these factors, sales increased 16.3% on an organic basis reflecting a 15.9% increase in the Service Center segment and a 17.4% increase in the Fluid Power & Flow Control segment. The Company reported net income of $53.0 million, or $1.36 per share, and EBITDA of $88.5 million. On a pre-tax basis, results include $3.6 million ($0.07 after tax per share) of LIFO expense compared to $1.1 million ($0.02 after tax per share) of LIFO expense in the prior year period.

Neil A. Schrimsher, Applied's President & Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We started fiscal 2022 on a positive note with sales, EBITDA, and EPS all achieving record first quarter levels. We are effectively managing through industrial supply chain and inflationary headwinds year to date. This is highlighted by solid organic growth and EBITDA margin expansion during the quarter, as well as a build in inventory levels supporting near-term growth opportunities. At the same time, our cash generation remains strong and we continue to execute on our strategic growth plan, including expansion of our automation platform with the August 2021 acquisition of R.R. Floody Company."

Mr. Schrimsher added, "Looking ahead, supply chain and inflationary pressures across the industrial sector present ongoing uncertainty to our near-term outlook. That said, underlying demand remains resilient entering our fiscal second quarter with organic sales up by a mid-teens percent year over year so far in October, while order and backlog trends are encouraging. We believe our leading technical industry position, local service capabilities, and evolution into new industrial technologies and solutions is a competitive advantage being reinforced by current macro and supply chain dynamics. Combined with balance sheet capacity, we have considerable self-help growth and earnings potential that we are intensely focused on capturing in fiscal 2022 and beyond."

Fiscal 2022 Guidance
The Company is maintaining guidance for fiscal 2022 including EPS of $5.00 to $5.40, sales growth of 8% to 10% (7% to 9% on an organic basis), and EBITDA margins of 9.7% to 9.9%. Guidance does not assume contribution from potential future acquisitions.

Share Repurchases
During the quarter, the Company purchased 76,658 shares of its common stock in open market transactions for $6.5 million. At September 30, 2021, the Company had remaining authorization to purchase approximately 388,000 additional shares.



Dividend
Today the Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.33 per common share, payable on November 30, 2021, to shareholders of record on November 15, 2021.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1) Applied uses the last-in, first-out (LIFO) method of valuing U.S. inventory. An actual valuation of inventory under the LIFO method can only be made at the end of each year based on the inventory levels and costs at that time. Accordingly, interim LIFO calculations are based on management's estimates of expected year-end inventory levels and costs and are subject to the final year-end LIFO inventory determination.

SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(Unaudited)
(In thousands)
The Company supplemented the reporting of financial information determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) with reporting of non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful information to assist shareholders in understanding financial results, assessing prospects for future performance, and provide a better baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported results. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of operations that, when viewed with GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of the business. The Company strongly encourages investors and shareholders to review company financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
Reconciliation of Net Income, a GAAP financial measure, to EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure:

The Company defines EBITDA as Earnings from operations before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization, a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA excludes items that may not be indicative of core operating results, a non-GAAP financial measure.
