Vertiv Reports 5.8% Net Sales Growth, 17.2% Orders Growth and Record Backlog in Third Quarter

10/27/2021 | 06:01am EST

  • Robust end-market demand continued with double-digit order growth and record backlog of $2.4 billion.
  • Net sales growth of 5.8% and organic net sales growth of 3.9% versus prior year third quarter.
  • Third quarter operating profit of $82 million and adjusted operating profit of $131 million(1), with operating profit margin of 6.7% and adjusted operating profit margin of 10.7%.  Adjusted operating profit margin 490 basis points higher than prior year third quarter.
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.15, up $0.47 and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $0.20(1) up $0.15 from prior year quarter.
  • Year-to-date net operating cash flow of $174 million increased $160 million, and year-to-date free cash flow of $128 million increased $140 million from 2020 year-to-date.
  • Portfolio enhancements continue – expect to close E+I acquisition by November 1, 2021, and announcement of sale of heavy industrial UPS business expected to close in fourth quarter 2021.

Vertiv Holdings Co (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today reported strong financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021. Third quarter net sales were $1,229 million, an increase of $67 million, or 5.8%, compared with last year’s third quarter and a 3.9% organic sales increase excluding the impact of foreign currency. EMEA net sales increased 18.7% and were up 17.8% organically, with continued strength in colocation data center projects. APAC net sales increased 4.0% and were down 0.4% organically, with positive impacts from COVID-19 recovery in India offset by elevated 5G and wind power investments in China in third quarter 2020, which created a challenging year-over-year comparison. Americas net sales increased 1.0% and were up 0.6% organically, with strong service sales offset by constrained product sales impacted by supply chain challenges. Orders in the third quarter increased 17.2% compared with the prior year quarter, and Vertiv’s backlog reached a record level $2.4 billion at the end of September, increasing 34% from the end of 2020.

Third quarter operating profit of $82 million increased $47 million and adjusted operating profit of $131 million increased $64 million from the prior year quarter. Adjusted operating profit improvement was influenced by a one-time $80 million charge for a restructuring reserve and asset impairments recorded in third quarter 2020. The remaining $16 million reduction in adjusted operating profit was primarily driven by a $40 million year-over-year headwind from net material and freight inflation offset by $15 million net fixed cost reductions and a $10 million flowthrough benefit from higher organic sales. Supply chain issues have continued to accelerate in the third quarter and no improvement is expected in the fourth quarter, although our pricing response continues to meaningfully increase sequentially each quarter, and we anticipate another sequential increase in the fourth quarter. Cost containment actions have been accelerated heading into the fourth quarter to mitigate impacts from increased supply chain disruptions.

“We are pleased with our third quarter performance. We met our expectations for the period despite strong inflation and supply chain headwinds that continue,” said Rob Johnson, Vertiv’s Chief Executive Officer. “Despite the challenges, affecting virtually every sector of global business, we navigated our way through the quarter based upon the focus and persistence of our procurement organization that has strong relationships with suppliers and transportation providers that help to enable our success. Ultimately, the disruptions to our supply chain will pass, and we will be a stronger company in the long term because of our current efforts. On the inflation front, we continue to effectively balance appropriate pricing actions with a sharp focus on cost reductions. We will remain nimble and take the necessary actions to ensure that we continue to support our customers during this strong demand environment. Every day we are inspired and motivated by the knowledge that Vertiv helps to connect the world. We enable families, educators, healthcare and other vital organizations and businesses to connect, to communicate, to collaborate and to address needs, challenges and opportunities. We will always keep that responsibility at the forefront of what we do.”

Dave Cote, Vertiv’s Executive Chairman, added, “Vertiv is a growing, value-creating company with a great position in a good industry. The business challenges we face today are not unique to our company and are temporary in nature. The Vertiv team will work through these temporary challenges. Investments in new products, service offerings, the Vertiv Operating System and inorganic growth opportunities accelerate our ability to create value. We acted on that commitment during the third quarter when we announced the acquisition of E+I Engineering. The transaction will round out our portfolio of in-building power train offerings for data centers and vital commercial and industrial markets. The combination amplifies Vertiv’s growth opportunities and profitability while enabling us to deliver solutions that manage a customer’s entire power infrastructure as an integrated system. It was our first acquisition as a public company, and we followed best practices throughout the process to ensure we were acting in the right way at the right time to power our future. I remain excited about our ability to fuel and deliver accretive growth.”

Free Cash Flow and Liquidity

Net cash provided by operating activities in the third quarter was $54 million, a decrease of $82 million from the prior year quarter, and free cash flow was $44 million, a decrease of $85 million from the prior year quarter, primarily driven by a $43 million incremental investment in inventory to secure parts in this challenging supply chain environment, $16 million lower adjusted operating profit (net of the non-cash restructuring and asset impairment charges in third quarter 2020), $10 million higher capital expenditures related to growth investments, $9 million in M&A transaction expenses, and $6 million higher taxes. Year-to-date 2021 operating cash flow of $175 million increased $160 million, and free cash flow of $128 million increased $140 million compared to the same prior year period. Liquidity at the end of the first quarter remained strong at $1.2 billion.

Portfolio Enhancements

The previously announced strategic acquisition of E+I Engineering Group is expected to close no later than November 1, 2021. In addition, Vertiv has signed a definitive agreement to divest its heavy industrial UPS business. This business focuses mainly on upstream oil and gas markets and is not synergistic to Vertiv’s strategy. The business being divested has annual revenue of approximately $80 million. Vertiv expects to complete the divestiture in fourth quarter 2021.

Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2021 Guidance

Given the portfolio enhancements underway, we have updated our guidance to include impacts from the E+I acquisition, as well as the divestiture of the heavy industrial UPS business. The net impacts from these transactions are an additional $55 million in net sales and $13 million in adjusted operating profit and are included in the guidance table below for both fourth quarter and full year 2021. This guidance includes the expectation that supply chain headwinds continue at current levels for the remainder of the year. We anticipate supply chain pressure to continue at least through the first half of 2022. Despite these headwinds, demand remains strong, and we anticipate net pricing and inflation actions will provide a tailwind for full year 2022. In addition, we continue to accelerate additional cost containment actions.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Financial information included in the news release to which this Exhibit is attached have been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Vertiv has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in the news release, as further described above, that may not be directly comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies and therefore may not be comparable among companies. These non-GAAP financial measures may include organic net sales growth (including on a segment basis), adjusted operating profit, adjusted operating profit margin, adjusted diluted EPS, and free cash flow, which management believes provides investors with useful supplemental information to evaluate the Company’s ongoing operations and to compare with past and future periods. Management also uses certain non-GAAP measures internally for forecasting, budgeting and measuring its operating performance. These measures should be viewed as supplementing, and not as an alternative or substitute for, the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, Vertiv has provided reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Information reconciling certain forward-looking GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures related to fourth quarter and full-year 2021 guidance, including organic net sales growth and free cash flow, is not available without unreasonable effort due to high variability, complexity and uncertainty with respect to forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations. For the same reasons, we are unable to compute the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

See “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures” on this Exhibit 99.1 for Vertiv’s reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

This news release, and other statements that Vertiv may make in connection therewith, may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. This includes, without limitation, statements regarding the financial position, capital structure, indebtedness, business strategy and plans and objectives of Vertiv management for future operations, as well as statements regarding growth, anticipated demand for our products and services and our business prospects during 2021, as well as expected cost savings associated with our restructuring program. These statements constitute projections, forecasts and forward-looking statements, and are not guarantees of performance. Vertiv cautions that forward-looking statements are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties, which change over time.

Vertiv undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.

The forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference in this presentation are based on current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on Vertiv. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting Vertiv will be those that Vertiv has anticipated. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Vertiv has previously disclosed risk factors in its Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports.

Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement this news release, we have included certain non-GAAP financial measures that reflect the historical financial results presented in the format of the performance metrics we are beginning to report in 2021. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing our underlying business performance and trends. Further, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures also enhance investors' ability to compare period-to-period financial results. Non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, the company's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures do not represent a comprehensive basis of accounting. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Reconciliations of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP information are also included. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making financial, operating, compensation and planning decisions and in evaluating the company's performance. Disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors and management to view our operating results excluding the impact of items that are not reflective of the underlying operating performance.

Vertiv’s non-GAAP financial measures include:

  • Adjusted operating profit (loss), which represents operating profit (loss), adjusted to exclude amortization of intangibles;
  • Adjusted operating profit (loss) margins, which represents adjusted operating profit (loss) divided by net sales; and
  • Adjusted diluted EPS, which represents diluted earnings per share adjusted to exclude amortization of intangibles.

GAAP Diluted and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS is based on 363.2 million shares (includes 352.5 million basic shares, 4.7 million potential dilutive stock options and restricted stock units and 6.0 million dilutive warrants). We believe that this Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS presentation is more representative of operating results by removing the impact of merger and acquisition related costs and warrant liability accounting.

(2)

Includes ~$9 million of cash expenses and ~$9 million asset impairment related to the Heavy Industrial UPS business.

We believe that this presentation facilitates comparison to the current period due to the impact of the reverse merger.

(1)

Information reconciling certain forward-looking GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures related to Q3 2021 guidance, including organic net sales growth and free cash flow, is not available without unreasonable effort due to high variability, complexity and uncertainty with respect to forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliations. For the same reasons, we are unable to compute the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

(2)

Management believes adjusting operating profit to exclude M&A expenses provides investors with additional meaningful financial information that should be considered when assessing our underlying business performance and trends, and more easily compares such results with our peers in evaluating the company’s performance. Disclosing this non-GAAP financial measure allows investors and management to view our operating results excluding the impact of items that are not reflective of the underlying operating performance.

(3)
