Fort Wayne, IN - July 27, 2021 - Franklin Electric Co. Inc. today announced second quarter 2021 financial results.

Second quarter 2021 sales were $437.3 million, compared to second quarter 2020 sales of $308.3 million, an increase of 42 percent.Second quarter 2021 operating income was $51.6 million, compared to second quarter 2020 operating income of $33.9 million, an increase of 52 percent.

Second quarter 2021 GAAP fully diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.83, versus second quarter 2020 GAAP fully diluted EPS of $0.52.

'In the second quarter of 2021, we delivered the highest sales and operating income for any quarter in Franklin's history, which included record revenue in Water Systems and Distribution, record operating income in Distribution and a strong performance in Fueling Systems, most notably in the U.S. This robust performance was propelled by a favorable demand environment and solid execution by our team. Further, our international businesses posted strong results across almost all regions, as we continued to carefully navigate a challenging operating environment. As a result, we posted year-over-year revenue and earnings per share growth of 42 percent and 60 percent, respectively. While supply chain constraints and inflation have presented challenges, we have remained agile and disciplined, positioning us to further capitalize on the opportunities in front of us,' commented Gregg Sengstack, Franklin Electric's Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Sengstack continued, 'Our second quarter acquisitions have further established a meaningful Water Treatment platform in North America. We remain confident as we look to the remainder of the year, as we believe we have ample runway to execute on our strategic plan and drive continued growth across the business.'



Segment Summaries

Water Systems sales, a new record for any quarter, were $247.2 million in the second quarter 2021, an increase of $68.8 million or 39 percent versus the second quarter 2020. Water Systems sales, excluding acquisitions and the impact of foreign currency translation, were up about 23 percent compared to the second quarter 2020. Sales of groundwater, surface and dewatering pump equipment all increased significantly due to strong end market demand and because the second quarter of 2020 was impacted negatively by the global pandemic. Water Systems operating income in the second quarter was $34.6 million driven by higher sales but offset in part by the inflationary impact of higher raw material and freight costs. Second quarter 2020 Water Systems operating income was $28.7 million.

Distribution sales were a record at $144.8 million in the second quarter 2021. The Distribution segment organic sales increased 41 percent compared to the second quarter of 2020. Revenue growth was driven by broad-based demand in all regions and product categories. The Distribution segment operating income was a record at $16.0 million in the second quarter of 2021 compared to second quarter 2020 operating income of $6.8 million.

Fueling Systems sales were $72.2 million in the second quarter 2021, an increase of $16.2 million versus the second quarter 2020. Fueling Systems sales in the U.S. and Canada increased by about 40 percent compared to the second quarter 2020. The increase was due to higher demand for Piping, Pumping and Fuel Management Systems. Outside the U.S. and Canada, Fueling Systems revenues increased by about 1 percent, driven primarily by higher sales in Latin America and EMENA, partially offset by lower sales in China. Fueling Systems operating income in the second quarter was $18.5 million, compared to $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, driven by higher sales.

Cash Flow

Net cash flows from operating activities for the first half of 2021 were $35.5 million versus $47.0 million in the same period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to higher working capital requirements in support of higher revenues.

2021 Guidance

The Company is maintaining its most recent full year 2021 earnings per share before restructuring expenses to be in the range from $2.85 to $3.05.The Company's 2021 guidance assumes there will not be any worsening impacts from supply chain disruptions and the global pandemic.
