NORTHBROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 1, 2022-- IDEX Corporation (NYSE: IEX) today announced its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2021.

“IDEX achieved record results in 2021, demonstrating our teams’ continued ability to execute against a challenging landscape," said Eric D. Ashleman, IDEX Corporation Chief Executive Officer and President. “We deployed more capital than ever before, using our strong balance sheet to add key strategic assets to the portfolio and continued investing in our businesses in ways that drive growth and productivity."

“As we move forward into 2022, demand for our differentiated technology remains strong, particularly in the markets served by our Health & Science Technologies businesses," Ashleman said. "However, the difficult supply chain and COVID-19 environment persisted in the fourth quarter. We expect those challenges to continue through the first half of the year, impacting our ability to ramp production levels.

While we continue to navigate the current challenging environment, we remain optimistic in the long-term strength of our businesses. We are actively investing to support our best opportunities for organic growth, and we have ramped up our capital spending to support some exciting initiatives. We will continue to actively seek to deploy additional capital to acquire IDEX-like businesses as well as make some calculated investments in new technologies to bolster our growth potential and to further strengthen our portfolio and enhance our return to shareholders.”

2022 Outlook

Organic sales growth is projected to be 5 to 8 percent for 2022, with a 6 to 7 percent organic sales increase in the first quarter of 2022 versus the prior year period. We expect full year 2022 GAAP EPS of $6.70 to $7.00 (adjusted EPS of $7.33 to $7.63) and first quarter 2022 GAAP EPS of $1.57 to $1.60 (adjusted EPS of $1.73 to $1.76).

As previously disclosed, beginning in 2022, we will calculate adjusted net income and adjusted EPS to also exclude the impact of after-tax acquisition-related intangible asset amortization. Under the revised definition, adjusted EPS for full year and fourth quarter 2021 were $6.87 and $1.71 per share, respectively.

Net Sales

Fourth quarter 2021 sales of $714.8 million reflected a 16 percent increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2020 (+11 percent organic and +5 percent acquisitions).

Full year 2021 sales of $2,764.8 million reflected an 18 percent increase compared with 2020 (+12 percent organic, +4 percent acquisitions and +2 percent foreign currency translation).

Gross Margin

Fourth quarter 2021 gross margin and adjusted gross margin of 44.0 percent both increased 20 basis points compared with the prior year period primarily due to volume leverage.

Full year 2021 gross margin of 44.3 percent increased 60 basis points compared with 2020 primarily due to volume leverage, partially offset by higher step-up charges related to acquisitions. Adjusted gross margin, which excludes the impact of step-up charges, was 44.7 percent, up 80 basis points compared with 2020.

Operating Margin

Fourth quarter 2021 operating margin of 22.7 percent increased 10 basis points compared with the prior year period driven by lower restructuring costs as compared to the prior year period. Excluding restructuring costs, adjusted operating margin was 22.8 percent, down 60 basis points compared with the prior year period due to incremental resource investments, targeted discretionary spending and higher amortization from acquisitions, partially offset by higher volume leverage.

Full year 2021 operating margin of 23.0 percent increased 90 basis points compared with 2020, reflecting higher volume leverage and lower restructuring costs, partially offset by incremental resource investments, targeted discretionary spending, higher amortization and step-up charges from acquisitions and a corporate transaction indemnity charge in 2021. Adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of restructuring, step-up and indemnity charges, was 23.9 percent, up 110 basis points compared with 2020.

Net Income and Earnings per Share Attributable to IDEX

Fourth quarter 2021 net income attributable to IDEX increased $17.7 million to $118.8 million, which resulted in EPS attributable to IDEX of $1.55 per share. The fourth quarter 2021 effective tax rate of 22.5 percent was relatively flat compared to the fourth quarter 2020 effective tax rate of 22.2 percent. Adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX, which reflects the impact of non-GAAP adjustments, net of related tax impacts, was also $1.55 per share, an increase of 18 cents per share, or 13.1 percent, from the prior year period.

Full year 2021 net income attributable to IDEX increased $71.6 million to $449.4 million, which resulted in EPS attributable to IDEX of $5.88 per share. The 2021 effective tax rate was 22.5 percent compared to the 2020 effective tax rate of 19.7 percent. The 2021 effective tax rate is higher due to a decrease in the excess tax benefit related to share-based compensation and benefits associated with the finalization of the Global Intangible Low-Tax Income (“GILTI”) regulations in 2020. Adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX, which reflects the impact of non-GAAP adjustments, net of related tax impacts, was $6.30 per share, an increase of $1.11 per share, or 21.4 percent, from the prior year period.

Cash Flow

Fourth quarter and full year 2021 cash from operations of $163.1 million and $565.3 million, respectively, were relatively flat compared with the same prior year periods as higher earnings were offset by an increased investment in working capital. Fourth quarter 2021 free cash flow of $135.9 million was 115 percent of adjusted net income attributable to IDEX, while full year 2021 free cash flow of $492.6 million was 102 percent of adjusted net income attributable to IDEX. Both fourth quarter and full year 2021 periods reflected higher investments in growth projects as compared to the respective prior year periods.

  • Fourth quarter 2021 sales of $252.8 million reflected a 10 percent increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2020 (+7 percent organic, +4 percent acquisitions and -1 percent foreign currency translation).
  • Full year 2021 sales of $998.7 million reflected an 11 percent increase compared with 2020 (+6 percent organic, +4 percent acquisitions and +1 percent foreign currency translation).
  • Fourth quarter 2021 operating margin was 25.3 percent, down 40 basis points compared with the prior year period primarily due to incremental resource investments and targeted discretionary spending as well as the dilutive impact of acquisitions driven by higher amortization and lower energy demand, partially offset by lower restructuring costs and favorable price/cost. Adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of restructuring costs, was 25.2 percent, a 180 basis point decrease compared with the prior year period.
  • Full year 2021 operating margin was 26.0 percent, down 20 basis points compared with 2020 primarily due to higher amortization related to the ABEL Pumps, L.P. ("ABEL Pumps") and Flow Management Devices LLC ("Flow MD") acquisitions and lower volume from the Flow MD business, as well as costs associated with COVID-19 related new product development that did not materialize. These unfavorable impacts to margin were partially offset by overall higher volume leverage, favorable price/cost and lower restructuring and step-up charges. Adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of restructuring and step-up charges, was 26.7 percent, a 60 basis point decrease compared with 2020.

  • Fourth quarter 2021 operating margin was 25.4 percent, down 130 basis points compared with the prior year period primarily due to unfavorable price/cost and incremental targeted discretionary spending, partially offset by volume leverage and lower restructuring charges.

  • Full year 2021 operating margin was 26.1 percent, up 50 basis points compared with 2020 primarily due to higher volume and lower restructuring costs, partially offset by unfavorable price/cost and mix. Adjusted operating margin, which excludes the impact of restructuring costs, was 26.2 percent, a 10 basis point increase compared with 2020.

Corporate Costs

Corporate costs included in operating income were $20.6 million and $80.5 million in the fourth quarter and full year 2021, respectively, an increase of $4.7 million and $15.6 million over the prior year comparative periods. The increases were primarily driven by higher variable compensation and employee-related costs, as well as higher acquisition expenses, partially offset by lower IDEX Foundation funding as the prior year included a special fourth quarter contribution. Full year 2021 costs also included a $3.5 million charge related to the settlement of a corporate transaction indemnity.

Debt Offering and Redemption

On May 28, 2021, the Company completed a public offering of $500.0 million 2.625% Senior Notes due June 15, 2031. The net proceeds from the offering were $494.7 million. The net proceeds were used to redeem and repay the $350.0 million 4.20% Senior Notes due December 15, 2021 and the related “make-whole” redemption premium of $6.7 million, with the remaining balance used for general corporate purposes. The Company also recognized $1.9 million of deferred costs related to the 4.20% Senior Notes for a total loss on early debt redemption of $8.6 million, which was recorded within Other (income) expense - net.

Termination of U.S. Pension Plan, Net of Curtailment

On June 17, 2021, the Company settled its remaining obligations under the U.S. pension plan through a combination of lump-sum payments to eligible participants who elected them, and through the purchase of annuities from Legal and General, an A rated third-party insurer. The Company recognized a net loss of $8.6 million which was recorded within Other (income) expense - net. The net loss consisted of a $9.7 million loss related to previously deferred pension related costs and a $0.9 million loss related to a decrease in plan assets remaining after the settlement, partially offset by a $2.0 million curtailment gain related to the termination of several participants within one of the Company's post-retirement medical plans.

Acquisition

On November 23, 2021, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Nexsight, LLC and its businesses Envirosight, WinCan, MyTana and Pipeline Renewal Technologies (“Nexsight”) for cash consideration of $120.0 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments. Nexsight is based in Randolph, New Jersey. Nexsight will complement and create synergies with the Company’s existing iPEK and ADS business units that design and create sewer crawlers, inspection and monitoring systems and software applications that allow teams to identify, anticipate and correct wastewater system issues remotely. With annual sales of approximately $50 million, Nexsight will be part of the Company’s Water reporting unit within the FMT segment. The Company expects to close the transaction by the end of the first quarter of 2022, subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions.

Restructuring Expenses and Asset Impairments

The Company recorded $0.7 million and $9.3 million of restructuring expenses and asset impairments in the fourth quarter and full year 2021, respectively, to facilitate long-term sustainable growth through cost reduction actions, primarily consisting of employee reductions, facility rationalization and impairment charges.

Three and twelve month data also includes the results of CiDRA Precision Services (March 2021) in the Health & Science Technologies segment through the date of disposition.

(b)

Segment operating income excludes unallocated corporate operating expenses which are included in Corporate Office and Eliminations.

(c)

These are non-GAAP financial measures. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, see the reconciliation tables below.

(d)

Depreciation and amortization excludes amortization of debt issuance costs.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

The Company prepares its public financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). The Company supplements certain GAAP financial performance metrics with non-GAAP financial performance metrics. Management believes these non-GAAP financial performance metrics provide investors with greater insight, transparency and a more comprehensive understanding of the financial information used by management in its financial and operational decision making because certain of these adjusted metrics exclude items not reflective of ongoing operations, such as fair value inventory step-up charges, restructuring expenses and asset impairments, the loss on early debt redemption, the noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan, net of curtailment, and the impact of the settlement for a corporate transaction indemnity. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial performance metrics to their most comparable GAAP financial performance metrics are defined and presented below and should not be considered a substitute for, nor superior to, the financial data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Due to rounding, numbers presented throughout this and other documents may not add up or recalculate precisely. There were no adjustments to GAAP financial performance metrics other than the items noted below.

  • Organic orders and sales are calculated excluding amounts from acquired or divested businesses during the first twelve months of ownership or prior to divestiture and the impact of foreign currency translation.
  • Adjusted gross profit is calculated as gross profit plus fair value inventory step-up charges.
  • Adjusted gross margin is calculated as adjusted gross profit divided by net sales.
  • Adjusted operating income is calculated as operating income plus fair value inventory step-up charges plus restructuring expenses and asset impairments plus the impact of the settlement for a corporate transaction indemnity.
  • Adjusted operating margin is calculated as adjusted operating income divided by net sales.
  • Adjusted net income attributable to IDEX is calculated as net income attributable to IDEX plus fair value inventory step-up charges plus restructuring expenses and asset impairments plus the impact of the settlement for a corporate transaction indemnity plus the loss on early debt redemption plus the noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan, net of curtailment, all net of the statutory tax expense or benefit.
  • Adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX is calculated as adjusted net income attributable to IDEX divided by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
  • EBITDA is calculated as net income plus interest expense plus provision for income taxes plus depreciation and amortization. We reconcile EBITDA to net income on a consolidated basis as we do not allocate consolidated interest expense or consolidated provision for income taxes to our segments.
  • EBITDA interest coverage is calculated as EBITDA divided by consolidated interest expense.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA plus fair value inventory step-up charges plus restructuring expenses and asset impairments plus the impact of the settlement for a corporate transaction indemnity plus the loss on early debt redemption plus the noncash loss related to the termination of the U.S. pension plan, net of curtailment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by net sales.
  • Adjusted EBITDA interest coverage is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA divided by consolidated interest expense.
  • Free cash flow is calculated as cash flow from operating activities less capital expenditures.
  • Adjusted net income attributable to IDEX - restated is calculated as adjusted net income attributable to IDEX - as reported plus after-tax acquisition-related intangible asset amortization.
  • Adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX - restated is calculated as adjusted net income attributable to IDEX - restated divided by the diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

Table 9: Recast Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS Attributable to IDEX (in millions, except per share amounts)

As discussed herein, starting in 2022, IDEX will revise adjusted net income attributable to IDEX and adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX to exclude the impact of after-tax acquisition-related intangible asset amortization. We exclude after-tax acquisition-related intangible asset amortization because the amount and timing of such charges are impacted by the timing, size, number and nature of the acquisitions the Company consummates. To facilitate investor understanding and comparison, the Company is providing historical adjusted net income attributable to IDEX and adjusted EPS attributable to IDEX on this new basis.
